Dept of Arms has launched a mega online store for gun and ammo buyers to find the products they need at low costs (www.DeptArms.com). At the same time, they have also partnered with Equale: Free Speech Social Media (www.AllEquale.com) to create the first licensed gun dealer (FFL) friendly social media network that will allow licensed dealers to advertise gun sales. Up to this point other social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, Tiktok, etc.. have not allowed any advertising related to gun sales. Most consumers flock to sites like Gunbroker to buy guns and ammo, but now Equale will bring customers to dealers for much less cost. The new social meda network advertises for fractions of the costs of other social media networks. Dept of Arms has partnered with tons of distributors and other dealers in an effort to bring cheap guns and cheap ammo to the masses by showing their customers the best prices available. Teaming up with Equale: Free Speech Social Media give them a one-two punch of the 1st and 2nd Amendment that most Americans have been craving, but have been censored from by large leftist corporations. However, companies like Dept of Arms and Equale show that Patriots still exist in the corporate world and that American rights and freedom are far from gone.
The only way to send money electronically has always been to rely on a centralized intermediary, say someone like PayPal. And what PayPal does is it keeps track of the amount of money that I have in my account. Say I loaded it from my bank account or I got paid by another PayPal user, and then PayPal lets me send the PayPal Bitcoin.
Won’t let me send more money than I ever have, and will tell somebody else whether they’ve received money from me. PayPal just keeps this ledger of transactions. So with PayPal, there’s one ledger and it’s held by a company PayPal. In the PayPal Bitcoin network that ledger is distributed across every participant, so anybody who’s connecting to the network has a copy of it on their computer in full, going all the way back to the history of the network when it was first created in 2009.
Now, how does new information get added to that ledger? Well, that’s this role that miners play. They listen for transaction messages that are validly signed on the network.
And they bundle them into what we call a block. They announce this block and they say, “Now, you all take this and add this to your copy of the ledger. We call that ledger a block chain because the miner has just announced a block and that block is mathematically linked to all the blocks in the past. They’re chained together like a big long string. What they’re doing is providing a public good, they’re relaying transactions, validating signatures, putting them into a block, adding that block to the block chain and distributing that to all the people on the network.
They’re given a reward by the network for performing this public good. And that reward comes in two different ways. One, a Crypto Swami Bitoin Miner is allowed to stick in the ledger of transactions for that ten minutes, one special transaction. And if it says, “I, the miner pay myself 12.5-bit points,” and they came from nowhere.
This is the only time on the Bitcoin network that anyone is allowed to ever have a transaction that didn’t have any inputs, that literally created money out of thin air. At some point, somebody started calling this activity of getting new Bitcoins by providing this public good on the network, mining. It’s like digging into the side of a mountain and getting gold.
A technology that can already be tested
Selecting our destination in the navigator by thought control, choosing the ambient light in the interior or changing the radio station are just some of the possibilities offered by the brain-computer interface (BCI): a new form of control and person-vehicle interaction, in the purest style of the protagonists of Avatar.
While it is true that BCI applications will not be available in everyday life in the near future, they are no longer mere science fiction. In the field of medical research, for example, they are already seen as a viable option that could help people with physical disabilities to become more independent.
At the VISION AVTR booth at the Munich Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz is offering the opportunity to test for the first time a preview of how BCI technology would work in a vehicle.
The user simply attaches the BCI device to the back of his or her head and after a minute-long calibration process, the device analyzes and measures his or her brain waves and activates a defined function. The stronger the concentration, the greater the neural activity and therefore the faster and more effective the interaction.
Thus, you can experience firsthand what it would be like to control a vehicle interface with your thoughts and interact with it in real time. BCI technology works completely independently of speech and touch, opening up revolutionary possibilities for the future.
In addition, instead of a conventional steering wheel, the VISION AVTR has a multifunctional control element in the center console that can also be tested: by placing the hand on the control, the interior comes to life and the vehicle recognizes the passenger by his or her heart rate.
With the development of the voice assistant that the brand has dubbed ‘Hey Mercedes’ and the MBUX Hyperscreen concept, Mercedes-Benz is already working to radically simplify vehicle operation, but BCI technology goes one step further.
According to Markus Schäfer, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Group Research, “it can enable the user to focus even more on the driving experience.” The biometric connection enables a completely new interaction between man and machine, but also with nature.
The name of this concept that mimics the neural connection between the Na’vi stands for “advanced vehicle transformation” and with its elongated arc-shaped design and the use of sustainable and recycled materials in the interior, it embodies the vision of Mercedes-Benz designers, engineers and trend researchers for mobility in the distant future.
