Steam ditches bitcoin transactions because it's so volatile

http://www.businessinsider.com/valve-owned-steam-has-stopped-accepting-bitcoin-2017-12

>Hugely popular gaming store Steam has stopped accepting payments for games in bitcoin because the cryptocurrency is too volatile.

>In a blog post on Wednesday announcing the changes, Steam engineer Kurtis Chinn wrote: "As of today, Steam will no longer support Bitcoin as a payment method on our platform due to high fees and volatility in the value of Bitcoin."

>Steam rivals Sony's PlayStation Network as the world's biggest gaming service, with 67 million monthly active players versus Sony's 70 million monthly active users.

>The decision to halt bitcoin payments doesn't seem to be related to the various controversies around bitcoin — such as whether it predominantly benefits criminals and is a massive energy drain — but because it's skyrocketing value means higher transaction fees. Steam first began accepting bitcoin in April 2016.

>"In the past few months we've seen an increase in the volatility in the value of Bitcoin and a significant increase in the fees to process transactions on the Bitcoin network. For example, transaction fees that are charged to the customer by the Bitcoin network have skyrocketed this year, topping out at close to $20 a transaction last week (compared to roughly $0.20 when we initially enabled Bitcoin)." Chinn wrote.

>Valve, which owns and operates the Steam platform, has no control over the transaction fee, he said.

>If bitcoin suddenly plunges in value, that creates even more problems, he added.

Dinosaur tail found

The tail of a 99-million-year-old dinosaur, including bones, soft tissue, and even feathers, has been found preserved in amber, according to a report published today in the journal Current Biology.

Researchers believe it belongs to a juvenile coelurosaur, part of a group of theropod dinosaurs that includes everything from tyrannosaurs to modern birds.

American evangelicals and Senator Doug Broxson rally to pray for world war 3 and the end times

No.206420 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
n a Pensacola, Florida rally Friday evening, Republican state Senator Doug Broxson suggested to supporters of Donald Trump that the president’s controversial decision to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem may usher in the biblical end times.

“Now, I don’t know about you, but when I heard about Jerusalem — where the king of kings [applause] where our soon coming king is coming back to Jerusalem, it is because President Trump declared Jerusalem to be capital of Israel,” Broxson said. The crowd cheered.

Theological scholar Diana Butler Bass wrote a Twitter thread explaining the link between recognition of Jerusalem, evangelical Christians and the apocalypse. That is important because rebuilding the Temple is the event that will spark the events of the Book of Revelation and the end times.”

According to Bass, Trump listens to the counsel of evangelical advisers who take such "end times” prophecies literally.

“Of all the possible theological dog-whistles to his evangelical base, this is the biggest,” she continued. “Trump is reminding them that he is carrying out God’s will to these Last Days. They’ve been waiting for this, praying for this. They want war in the Middle East. The Battle of Armageddon, at which time Jesus Christ will return to the Earth and vanquish all God’s enemies.”

She warned that for some evangelicals, this is considered a “climax of history.”

ILLEGAL ALIEN TRIED TO RAPE 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL, CHASED HER WITH MACHETE

No.206445 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
http://www.illegalaliencrimereport.com/crimes-against-children/illegal-alien-tried-to-rape-10-year-old-girl-chased-her-with-machete/ CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA (WTVR) – Even though her bus stop in North Chesterfield sits just steps from their home, Sara Soto never lets her 10-year-old daughter Meleny walk to or from the bus alone.

In fact, she doesn’t ever let her kids outside by themselves.

“You gotta be with your kids at all times in these apartments,” Soto said.

That’s because of an incident in late October, when Soto said a man attacked her daughter.

“He was standing right there when he grabbed her,” Soto said.

It happened while Soto and Meleny were walking to the store.

Meleny was a few steps ahead of her mother, and after rounding the corner she said she was approached by the suspect.

“His zipper was down. He said where was I going. I was just walking, and he grabbed me,” the 10-year-old said.

“I was like why are you crying? ‘That guy. That guy grabbed me. He had his thing out.’ Like what are you talking about his thing? His thing! I was like oh my God,” Soto said.

Yahoo and Mozilla Are Suing Each Other Over Google's Default Search Status

No.205235 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
http://fortune.com/2017/12/07/yahoo-mozilla-oath-lawsuit-search-engine/

>Yahoo and parent company Oath filed a complaint against Internet browser company Mozilla last week, claiming that it had “improperly terminated an agreement between Mozilla and Yahoo.” Mozilla has now filed a countersuit, claiming breach of contract.

>Back in 2014, then-president and CEO of Yahoo Marissa Mayer, struck a deal with Mozilla for Yahoo to be the default search engine on the browser. According to Recode, the terms of the agreement stipulated that whomever acquired Yahoo would be obligated to pay Mozilla “annual payments of $375 million through 2019, even if [Mozilla] does not think the buyer was one it wanted to work with and walked away.”

>In mid-November, Mozilla announced it was switching back to Google as its search provider in the U.S., Canada, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The announcement came in conjunction with the launch of a new browser, Firefox Quantum.

>Given the excitement surrounding Mozilla’s new browser, Yahoo wants to remain the search provider for Mozilla. But according to a Mozilla statement on Tuesday , the company reviewed the deal following Yahoo’s acquisition and chose to exercise its “contractual right” to terminate its agreement with Yahoo.

Hillary Clinton Supporters Are Plotting To Falsely Accuse Bernie Sanders Of Sexual Assault

No.205697 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Apparent Hillary Clinton supporters on Twitter are plotting to falsely accuse Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) of sexual harassment in order to force his resignation.

A tweet sent at 9:14 a.m. on December 7 by Gabrielle Fane reads:

So who’s ready to be an Anonymous caller to say Bernie grabbed my waist during a selfie? All we need is 8 and we can push him out. #AlFranken

Fane’s Twitter handle is @gabyfane and her bio reads: “‘We are the ones we have been waiting for.’ – Barack Obama CA, NYC, NJ, UK, CA, PDX #StillWithHer” Notably, Fane’s bio also contains a donut emoji, which is widely understood among online left-leaning communities to be a symbol for liberals and Democrats opposed to socialists and the so-called Sanders wing of the Democratic Party.

A long-time supporter of liberal Democrats, Fane’s Fane penned an election-eve Facebook post on November 8, 2016 which was decidedly anti-Trump and apparently pro-Clinton. She wrote, in an introduction to a letter from the principal at her daughter’s school describing racist and anti-Semitic incidents: “A letter from my daughters school. For those who think that their is nothing to worry about with a Trump presidency. This is real and I hate that my child and other children have to deal with this in 2016. #trump #hillary #election2016.” On October 31, 2016, Fane shared a video criticizing Donald Trump‘s record on LGBT issues and praising Clinton’s record.

Fane followed up her original tweet by writing, “I’m sorry but I don’t think the things @SenFranken was accused of were the sexual assault and a few of the accusers were anonymous. I know you Bernie’s like to think things have always been the same but 10ys ago things were different.”
