I'm a European Citizen. How Does It Feel to Live in a Country That Has the Same Level of Freedom As

I am also a European, and have lived in nine countries, two of which were as free as Europe. They were Canada and New Zealand.These two felt very much like Europe, although one thing that was blissfully absent were the constant reminders of past wars. I liked being able to simply exist in my own era, not having to take into account distortions to society incurred by people I never knew.

The world wars have left a permanent shadow on Europe, and it was a relief to leave that behind.But when you are European, your standards for many things will be high. I felt I did not get what I needed from life outside Europe in that regard. The homes are not as nice, the cities lack depth and history, and the reference points of the people can be uninspiring.So, after half a lifetime spent living in these and some European countries, as well as the US, China, and India, I have made my home in a country that can give me European sophistication, entirely without the shadow of war: Sweden

Who was the most intelligent founding father and why?

Jefferson is the easy answer, but Hamilton is better. His accomplishments lie further beneath the surface and he tended not to flaunt them as much as Jefferson did. A lot of Jeffersons accomplishments were fairly facile; he as a great tinkerer, but his mind jumped around a lot.

His writing was important the Declaration a major accomplishment. But more important than Hamiltons work on the Federalist Papers? Comparing apple and oranges, but still. Jefferson had little to do with the Constitution, Hamilton a lot.

Jefferson came from money and ended up with none. Hamilton was a totally self-made man, and what he was able to accomplish in his early life is astounding.Im frankly not as fond of Jefferson as many are because I think he was a gigantic hypocrite and not just on slavery. That, of course, is not relevant to how smart he was. That said, I agree that he had an amazing mind. But Hamilton was astonishingly smart. The musical makes that clear, but I have been a big fan of Hamilton well before that.

Maybe we can not have a feud and declare both Jefferson and Hamilton equally smart

What does free trade mean?

Free trade essentially means that you levy trade sanctions against some countries, while subsidizing others.You want to subsidize the weapon makers in your country? Rename the subsidize foreign aid, and give them to a foreign leader, on the condition that he buys from the weapon maker you wanted to subsidize.Call it free trade too, since you are sending guns to a different country.

And then you prevent some countries from buying medicine, or selling oil, and seize their financial assets.It means you can have the backing of the OECD to enforce tax practices that enable tax havens, and keep the developing/producing countries poor. Yes, offshoring money to tax havens is a lot of what is meant by free trade.

Its a system where even if the people in the country that owns the company, and the final market, decide to vote against some unethical practices, those practices end up being done on the other side of an imaginary line called a border.It means wealthy individuals and corporations can buy up all the infrastructure in poorer countries, like the land, and the natural resources, and then exploit and export them, without the local population seeing any benefits

What if Stalin had been shot in June 1941? What if someone like Zhukov had organized a palace coup and killed Stalin or held him hostage?

This entire discussion turns on one assumption - that Stalin, and Stalin alone held the keys to the castle, and that others would, upon his death, make changes. This is simply not true. Stalin surrounded himself with men who agreed with him, and he would be replaced by men who agreed with him. And while Stalin was the supreme leader he was also a product of a totalitarian regime - life required subservience to the state and to Stalin, so there were no opposing views, let alone masses of people looking to hear about them. Upon his death, especially his untimely death in wartime, the incoming leader or leaders and the people themselves would look to do things in his honor, for his glory and in his name rather than spur any meaningful changes in leadership, strategy or tactics. Things would certainly change over time, getting further and further away from Stalin's course with every passing day simply because others would be making decisions. But a meaningful break from Stalinism would take years of preparation, and at the time there simply wasn't an alternative voice for people to listen to. Though Khruschev later denounced Stalin he only did so in secret, and only after Uncle Joe had been dead for four years

Do dynastic politics in India ruin the country?

According to me that person has to be Sharad Pawar. The most senior politician in our country and still playing the great moves in politics. He is the person who can bring the politics where ever he wants hence its dangerous for our country I guess. He can bring in politics into sports.

. farming.

. educations and everywhere. You cant even imagine the way he is playing his moves in politics. I am a big fan of Mr Sharad Pawar as he is the great politician in out country and so on.. would like to see him working as a Prime Minister of our country (could have made all other countries fool everywhere :P) I am not sure but people keeps talking that he supports racism in our country.

. he is the one who stood by many who caught for doing corruptions and scams. I am wonders how chagan bhujbal of his party is in the police custody for more than a year :P :DIn indian especially in politics .. Sharad Pawar Politics has been a equation and will be. May god bless him.

What made Ulysses S. Grant such an effective general? Why did he succeed where so many others failed?

Many people have touched upon this, but Id like to state clearly that Grant knew, as Sherman did, but no previous Union generals had, that in modern war, battles were irrelevant. Once upon a time winning a battle was critical, in the aftermath a beaten army would be scattered and without supplies and unable to fight for a long time until it could reform and resupply. But in modern war, with railroads and telegraphs, this could be done very quickly. So battles didnt matter, it was campaigns that mattered. Before Grant, every Union commander fought a battle and stopped. Even if the battle was a victory, they stopped.

Grant knew that whatever the outcome of a particular encounter at a particular spot, you kept up the campaign (his skill at logistics, which many have mentioned, was key to this). Hit strong resistance ? Flank (Grant maybe could have learned this lesson a little sooner; Sherman knew it better (though, again, he failed to follow it once - once) and didnt spend his mens lives freely). Keep the campaign going, if the enemy wins 10 battles but is getting pushed back, then they are losing.

Should CJI Dipak Mishra be impeached?

Shri Dipak Misra was a non descript lawyer before the Congress made him a judge in the High Court. Later on the same Congress made him the Chief Justice of the Patna High Court. Then his stature is further enhanced when the Congress makes him CJ of Delhi High Court. And finally he is made a judge in the Supreme Court. Once again by the Congress. He might as have become the Chief Justice of India under the BJP, but then that was because he was the senior most judge. It was the groundwork done by the Congress that made him become the obvious choice for the position.

And what does the Congress get in return. Nothing. Unlike MMS this guy is no rubber stamp. He is such an ungrateful fellow that he is totally independent. His judgements never takes into account, how it affects the Congress. And worse. He takes his discretionary powers literally. Emissaries from 10, Janpath are not being accorded the status of Demi gods as they were at the PMO or MMS' residence.Such a man can't be tolerated. So let's impeach himu2026

What coincidence led you to your current partner?

My former girlfriend had broken up with me during my senior year of highschool. I moved and got a job out of town. I came back on weekends to watch my brothers football games that fall. I got the romantic idea to get back with her by sending Roses with a note attached saying that I would like to meet her at a pizza place after the game and try to get back together.

So after the game I am at the pizza place and wait and wait - she is a no show. I figure well I gave it shot, it didnu2019t work out. A table over there is group of girls. I struck up a conversation with one of them and we hit it off. Started dating and eventually we ended up getting married.The girl and the roses? I found out a few years later that she got a dozen roses delivered to her home - with no note, no card, nothing. She had no clue who had sent them. The note had fallen off the roses in the delivery van - the florist could not recall what ever happened to it.

So I always wondered how my life would have turned out differently if that note had not gotten lostu2026

Is Sam Harris a fraud?

Is Sam Harris a fraud?He doesnt appear to be a fraud. He has published articles since he received his PhD. Here is a link to one: Neural correlates of maintaining ones political beliefs in the face of counterevidence. That doesnt mean his PhD thesis is all that much, but I dont have the training to judge and I assume most people who know him as a speaker and writer dont have the ability to judge either.He isnt a professional scientist, that is one who works in the field every day and his list of papers, at least a list a non-academic can find is short. That is common with people whose careers leave the academic life. I just looked at Neil deGrasse Tysons cv and his last professional paper listed was in 2008.Most people who know about him arent paying attention to his science. When I first heard of him he didnt have a PhD, so that wasnt an issue. He is a wealthy man who pursued an education. He has a PhD, so what, but he isnt a fraud since he isnt peddling pop neuroscience. He is peddling pop atheism. I guess its a good living

How Does Traditional Market Research Integrate Blockchain
Insights network launched the install blockchain, which is one of the most unique blockchain technology use cases seen in the world. In this article, we will discuss how our blockchain Market Research Network works from a technical perspective, and how this technology can improve data quality, reduce costs, reduce fraud, and empower data creators.Next, we will focus on some of the most common problems in the traditional market research industry. Since the birth of the Internet, there has been no innovative standard practice in the traditional market research industry.Problem: low quality users. Unconfirmed false data. The traditional panel only allows users to register and select demographic information. We call it personal data value (age, gender, income level, number of children, pet owner, etc.). IP address detection is the basis for deciding whether to allow consumers to participate in the survey. In some cases, a method called "river sampling" is used to conduct real-time surveys of respondents. In this method, anyone who visits the survey link will begin to be screened for demographic questions and enter the relevant surveys (if available). This will lead to a poor user experience, which we will discuss in another article on this blog.Solution: verify the blockchain account. The submitted value is assigned to the install blockchain account as a hash value after verification. The insights network blockchain authentication account is assigned a hash value, allowing the account to participate in the smart contract. The identity is verified by a third-party authentication partner, and the value of the profile is submitted as an unexplained hash value, so it is impossible to know what value is assigned to each user. We use our patent application zero knowledge proof authentication scheme as a filter to ensure that authentication partners cannot track the documents they are validating. The technology we are applying for patent will be published and disclosed in detail before the end of 2019. Next, you will see the account verification record that occurs in real time and recorded on the blockchain. In this example, the account "fbtiezh3sty4" has received the authentication credentials assigned to its account and submitted to the install blockchain as "commit".Install blockchain record of the validated profile value submitted to the blockchain accountProblem: poor user experience. When conducting the survey on the traditional market research platform, a method called "river sampling" is adopted to conduct real-time survey on the respondents. In this method, anyone who visits the link will begin to be screened for demographic questions and guided to the relevant survey (if any). This leads to a bad user experience, and users constantly jump out of the survey in the process of accepting the survey. This is a waste of investigators' time and creates great frustration among the team members, resulting in a low retention rate of the team. For example, a requester can set a condition that only men aged 30-40 who drive a white car, own a dog and have mortgage debt are eligible to participate in the survey. Instead of predetermining these values before service users, they ask them when investigators conduct surveys. Some surveys may take 45 minutes to complete. Imagine that you spent 25 minutes completing a survey, but when they asked you if you had a pet and you said no, you were rejected. What would you think. This happened to most respondents.Solution: determine the "match" in advance before providing users with investigation opportunities. Through the smart contract on the install blockchain, you can find the value of the blockchain account submitted to each user and the local storage of the encryption profile value on the user's device. Every time a survey opportunity is created and funded, it enters the insights network data exchange smart contract. The contract then polls each device connected to the network for a device that matches the requested survey. The same selection criteria as traditional market research products can be set by the requester, but it does not allow anyone on the local IP address to access the survey - just to pop up unqualified participants afterwards - the smart contract searches for active devices on the network and only shows the survey opportunities to providers who meet the exact criteria specified by the requester. We use the so-called disconnection circuit to calculate the encryption profile value of each user to determine the "match". During the matching process, encrypted data polled for eligible demographic data will never be decrypted - giving users complete control over the visibility of their data. Here is how to record a match on the blockchain:Complete the "matched" install blockchain recordOnce a match is determined, the provider can see an investigation opportunity. Users can view the compensation provided for completing the survey, the personal data requested and the submitted data, and agree when exchanging personal data and responding to the survey. The submitted answer cannot be represented by a hash value.Install blockchain record for data exchangeQuestion: can you really believe these data? Most panel companies that complete the brand survey sample provide data sets to brands in an opaque situation. Previously, the industry has been plagued by the sharing of personally identifiable information (also known as "PII"). However, with the introduction of the general data protection regulation (gdpr) by the European Union (EU), this system has undergone major adjustments. It is illegal to collect consumers' personal identity information and sell it to a third party without consumers' consent. If the PII of consumers cannot be shared, it is more difficult to provide accurate information about the surveyed users. Nevertheless, most online panel companies have completely unauthenticated user databases, and trust in people is the only determinant of data quality.Solution: the blockchain can verify the transaction ID. When running an example on the insights network, the blockchain transaction ID is associated with each respondent. This creates audit trails that are not available in the current market research industry. There is now a clear record of team members' submissions and the relevant summary values of each team member. In addition to transparency, these transaction IDS can also be used as your consent records, that is, the consumers you investigate and exchange data agree to the data exchange you pay for them. Some gdpr laws require applicants to keep records of subjects' consent. Using the insights network, this feature is built-in to the end-to-end experience.The following is a screenshot of the data export of a survey recently launched by insight networ. As the requester, this is the data you paid and the data you received. As an additional feature, insights network uses one-time pad encryption for all data you purchase. This means that insights network cannot pry into the data set you pay as a requester. After you export the data, this is the only time you can export the data.Results of a survey sponsored by insights network on the popular cryptocurrency chainlinkProblem: slow invoicing and long revenue turnover time. At present, the invoicing time of the market research industry needs at least 60-90 days, and a brand can pay the expenses of researchers. This means that team members also have to wait for their bonus. The core reason is the lack of high-quality data and deceptive survey responses that need to be evaluated and filtered from the final data set. This may take several weeks for the brand to comb through the data and determine which data sets are available and which are false. This is a particularly painful experience for group companies because they are waiting for feedback from the brand. Basically, the brand tells them how much they will get from the data set provided by group members.Solution: early data verification and smart contract payment data exchange. As mentioned in this article, the verification of profile values, matching on blockchain and smart contract governance create a more efficient and high-quality end-to-end experience. The last thing to record is the payment scheme. Because surveys can be provided to pre-determined, pre validated audiences, payments occur immediately and are subject to smart contracts. Install cryptocurrency provides funds for the smart contract according to the budget determined by the requester, and pays the provider with blockchain transaction immediately after the provider submits and agrees to the data exchange. The following is the transaction ID of the data exchange smart contract paid to the provider who completed and agreed to exchange in the network.Blockchain transaction ID of payment data exchangeCryptocurrency payments on the blockchain and install blockchain are borderless and can be sent to anyone around the world within 1 second. It also opens up access to emerging markets that were previously inaccessible due to the collapse of their banking systems.Development prospectAt present, we are running the survey sample on the install blockchain network as the first use case of insights network. This technology has unlimited scalability, can safely verify data, and communicate privately on the network in a transparent record, such as sending bitcoin payment to friends. Some future use cases we are dealing with include releasing previously unavailable data exchange / sharing opportunities, such as nuclear power plant data exchange, PII involving Enterprise Market Research (Q4) using secret state data prediction, and simpler use cases, such as receipt data exchange and micro customer experience survey. The most beautiful aspect of blockchain technology is the global cooperation opportunities it provides.Source: blocknet
