Hello my dear Steemian friends!
Today we had our Meetup in Hamburg. This one was the first of a monthly following series of Meetups. The main goal is to bring new users and existing Steemians together and share our experience. Furthermore we want to grow a solid user base in Germany.
We had a good start! @essra and I met for the last preparations for the Meetup. Checking the projector, presentations, drinks and snacks etc. We were happy @gargon visited us as well!
To make it more steemy (I gave my best).
We talked about Steemit and cryptocurrencies in general. Some people were totally new to the blockchain and so
Bumblebees show scientists that they can learn so-called “unnatural” activities, such as rolling a ball into a target.
Wild Wild West.
We are continuing this trial run until approximately 4 JUL 17, after which we will assess the benefits of the current model against potential negatives. Until then we are announcing hangouts in a way that gives everyone an incentive to promote our events and themselves, their projects and alliances that germinate in this very hangout commun
Billionaire Donald Trump won the election in 2016. During the race Trump said that if he wins, he will save the country from illegal immigration by building a wall on the Mexican border, and then make America rich and free. He relentlessly criticized Obama's policies and promised to revive the
American dream. We have collected 15 unique facts from the biography of the newly created US President, which you probably did not know.
I am pretty public about my Crypto love, support and admiration for Charlie for breaking ground as a Liberty Pioneer for all of us WRT Blockchain, Bitcoin and related things in the Crypto space.
This is huge news for Charlie and his partner Jason Granger!
I wanted this out to everyone asap, so below UNEDITED is the screenshots from their business page AND the unedited Press Release if you cannot read the .jpegs.
In case you cannot read that, I tried quickly to enlarge it without wasting a lot of time, in my MS Paint, but it did not work -- I would have had to spend a few more mins dealing with enlarging it -- and this is massive news that is needed to get out.
Here is the unedited press release that came to my email
Hago este post fuera de mi contenido normal por mi amor a la astronomía, y a nuestro sol, El cual pasara por un eclipse Solar anular, El espectáculo Celestial.

Arizona — Anyone caught planning or simply participating in an otherwise peaceful demonstration could be arrested and charged under state racketeering laws — but, far worse, authorities would be free to seize their assets — should a new Arizona bill become law.
Police would be granted the power to arrest protesters on the assumption alone that the protest may devolve into a riot -- even if it hasn't.
Republicans answered the alleged problem of professional, paid protesters by introducing the draconian legislation — incidentally aiming a flaming arrow directly at the Constitution.
“When people want to express themselves as a group during a time of turmoil, during a time of controversy, during a time of high emotions, that’s exactly when people gather as a community,” noted Senator Martin Quezada, quoted by the Arizona Capitol
For decades now ... even longer, so-called
conspiracy theorists have been warning of totalitarian dangers to come. Warning Americans of a creepingly slow incremental increase in day-to-day oppression, disguised as heightened security in a time of increased danger to our way of life. Or that is the lie being told, seemingly without end, as we declare war on undefeatable, non-tangible ideas and concepts, such as the
war on drugs or the
war on terror that continue to dissolve what remains of every American's constitutional rights, with little to no actual positive results to show for decades of failed policy. How does one win a war against anyone's ability to use violent or destructive ends to achieve political goals? Which, point of fact, is the exact definition of terrorism. Who else is currently using violent ends to achieve politic
Motion sickness and the VR “hangover”: What you need to know.
by Zen @ ThisIsMeInVR.com
If you’ve tried out a Virtual Reality game or an amateur 360 video (not filmed on tripod) and experienced some discomfort during or afterwards, you felt motion sickness. The cause: Mixed sensory signals the brain misinterpreted as you being poisoned. The effects can be short or very long lasting. Hangover’s from technological immersion are now a real situation. Let me explain.
You see, your Brain determines your spacial position and movement by using visual signals from your eyes (constant subconscious processing of motion cues and horizon placement) and motion signals from liquids within your ear. Thus if you are in a virtual game and you move very quickly, (a sharp turn in a car), your eyes see the motion but your inner ear liquids don’t move accordingly. Your brain senses that your sensory
I saw a post about being watched by peeping tom ( hilarious post) and it made me remember The Big Brother Show. Mahn, I love the show a lot and I won't mind competing for the money. However, the idea of being watched 24/7 gives me the creeps.
The ongoing Big Brother see gobbe (Nigeria) is the First Big Brother I happen to devote my time on, watching Housemates from sunrise to sunset...I'm that jobless (honestly, I need a job steemians).
Very interesting set of people from different backgrounds. From a Professional Dancer to a Chef and Couple of Mus
At the moment, raw milk is only legal in a handful of states, while many other areas still choose to prohibit the sale of milk if it hasn't undergone any pasteurization. Despite the warnings from health officials for raw milk, many people are adamant in their support of it and they still greatly value the product.
Just recently, the Montana House of Reps went ahead and approved of a bill that would allow for the sale of raw, unpasteurized milk in the state. House Bill 325 received a final vote of 69-30 and it is now going to head to the Montana Senate to be considered.
If passed, the new rules would allow for direct-to-consumer sales of raw, unpasteurized milk. It would also cover milk coming from either cows, goats, or sheep. Meanwhile, many health agencies and officials still warn that the only safe way to consume milk is by

In den USA gab es den Trend Selfies in der Wahlkabine zu machen und das hat die deutschen Regulierer dazu motiviert über ein neues Gesetz nachzudenken.
In einigen amerikanischen Bundesstaaten ist das Fotografieren in Wahlkabinen bereits ausdrücklich verboten. Trotzdem posteten – unter Missachtung dieser Vorschriften – zum Beispiel der Popstar Justin Timberlake oder Eric Trump, Sohn des amerikanischen Präsidenten, Bilder ihrer Stimmabgabe. In Deutschland löste ein Abgeordneter 2011 im Stuttgarter Landtag mit einem Foto von seiner Stimmabgabe bei der Wahl des Landtagspräsidenten Wirbel aus.
Das Fotografieren des Wahlvorgangs oder sich selbst mit dem Wahtzettel soll gesetzlich verboten werden.
Wie immer natürlich zu unserem Schutz.
The rapid advance of technology has made life easier for us overall, but it had also helped in the conservation of species which were considered endangered.
But in a crazy twist, it seems that the same technology is hounding conservationists as it has bred a new type of poaching which exploits this very same technology to allow the malicious player an advantage.
A conservation biologist from the Carleton University in Ottawa, Steven Cooke, warns that
cyber-poachers could use tracking tags to hunt endangered animals. According to him, the very tools used by scientists to study and protect animals and fish are being hijacked to do just the opposite, kill them mercilessly!
It is a known fact that the tagging of animals in the wild has enabled biologists to monitor species which are considered vulnerable,
Hace unos meses me comentó @Timsaid que iba a empezar a organizar quedadas en Hamburgo para dar a conocer Steemit a gente nueva y hablar sobre nuestra plataforma preferida.
Hoy fue la primera en un hotel muy chulo: el 25 horas
Tiene un nombre raro pero la verdad es que la decoración y como lo tienen montado me encantó:
Arriba, alquilaron una meeting room pequeñita aunque muy acogedora:
Tampoco se olvidaron de poner algo para picar y un buen café para encafeinarnos
La verdad es que @essra y @timsaid hicieron una presentación muy chula y muy sencilla para newbies y la gente que había venido se mostró super
In many other countries, excluding the United States, corrupt bankers are often brought to task by their respective governments. The most recent example of a corrupt banker being held accountable comes out of Spain, where the former head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Rodrigo Rato, was sentenced to four years and six months behind bars.
According to the AFP, Spain’s National Court, which deals with corruption and financial crime cases, said he had been found guilty of embezzlement when he headed up Caja Madrid and Bankia, at a time when both groups were having difficulties.
Rato, who is tied to a slew of other allegations, was convicted and sentenced for misusing €12m between 2003 and 2012 — sometimes splashing out at the height of Spain’s economic crisis, according to the AFP.

The investigation had looked into the grilled chicken options that were available from these locations. Many of the food companies investigated, are frequently known to advertise their products as being fresh, made with quality ingredients, and even making promises that it contains nothing but 100% chicken; all-white meat.
The journalists enlisted the help of a scientist to investigate the real ingredients of the products. They brought the samples to a lab in order to test the DNA of the product. By doing this they were able to tell a rough estimate of the real chicken that is contained in the sample.
Fosil yakıtların çevreye verdiği zararlardan dolayı ve kullanımın maliyetli olması Türkiye'de yeni enerji kullanımı arayışlarına girilmesine sebep olmuştur. Bu arayışlar da yenilenebilir enerji kaynaklarına yönelmeye neden olmuştur. Ülkemiz ise coğrafyası gereği bazı enerji kaynaklarına ağırlık verip, onlar üzerinde durmuştur. Rüzgâr ve güneş enerjisi bunların başında gelmektedir. Ülkemizin konumu gereği güneş ışınlarına uzun süre maruz kalması güneş enerjisinin kullanımının ilk sıraya yerleşmesini sağlamıştır. Güneş enerjisinin avantajları da güneş enerjisi kullanımını arttırmıştır. Kullanım ve kurulum maliyetinin az olması, enerjinin depolanabilip hava karardığında da kullanılabilmesi, gaz, kükürt, duman ve radyasyon gibi etkilerinin olmaması, temiz enerji üretmesi, başlıca avantajlar arasınd
There is currently a massive hunt underway for the killer or killers involved in the murders of two teen girls, Liberty German (14) And Abigail Williams (13), in Indiana. The two girls allegedly had the day off from school on Feb 13th, and they decided to go hiking, and had been traveling through the woods and taking pictures in Delphi, Indiana. They even posted a photo to social media, which it turns out would be the last.
It's alleged that the girls were dropped off to the area around 1:00 pm and they had predetermined to be picked up at a certain time (5:30pm)/spot later on, but they never mad
