Never Judge a Book by its Cover

In this day and age, poker players at all levels have access to endless amounts of information on how to play the game. Practically all the major books and poker gurus stress that it’s very important to study your opponents and to work out what sort of category they fit into. This is indeed very good advice, but it’s normally a good idea to go a little bit further. You may place a player in a particular category and later discover that while you were right at the time, this was only because circumstances dictated that a guy deviate from his normal game. Tilt is one example, or having a bankroll too big or too small. To illustrate this point, I’d like to tell you a story involving the legendary Mike Sexton.


Before Mike experienced a change in fortune a couple of years ago, he was a frequent and very popular visitor to the Aviation Club in Paris. Mike’s the only guy in the history of the Aviation’s restaurant to have a personal bottle of ketchup kept for him by the restaurant manager from trip to trip. He holds the interesting record of having eaten steak and chips on 53 consecutive visits. Mike has quite a tasty tournament record in Paris, including a memorable victory over local favorite Claude Cohen in winning the European Championship. Mike also frequently played the Aviation’s cash games, at which he was less than successful. This surprised him, as he played a very tight and steady game, which should have been a winning formula against the French players back then. At that time, if you were to ask any of the French players to put Mike into a category, tight was exactly how they’d rate him — too tight, maybe. Imagine how surprised they’d have been if they knew the bluffer hidden just beneath the surface.


Mike lost his case money one afternoon in the Aviation Club and was so shocked by the beat he’d just taken that he left the club before realizing that he didn’t even have the price of a metro ticket in his pocket. He was so fed up that he decided to take on the long walk to where he was staying rather than having to face going back into the club to borrow some money for the trip. The inevitable happened, and when Mike was halfway home, the skies opened. Mike decided to take cover from the downpour and stepped inside the door of the nearest hotel, which just happened to be The Crillon, one of the classiest and most expensive hotels in Europe, and a little beyond Mike’s budget at the time. When you approach The Crillon, two doormen open the door for you, a sure sign that you can’t afford it, but very nice, nonetheless. As Mike stood in the foyer, he was approached by the manager, who asked if he could help. Mike took a look back out the door, saw that the rain was still bucketing down, and decided to make a big play. He told the manager that he was an American businessman who visited Paris five or six times a year and was staying with one of the hotel’s competitors, but that The Crillon had been recommended to him by a colleague, so he had come along to check it out, with a view to upgrading his accommodation on future visits. The manager was absolutely delighted and proceeded to personally show Mike around. After showing Mike the lounges and the dining rooms, he took Mike upstairs and showed him one of the bedrooms. As it was still raining, Mike decided to play for more time and said that although he was quite impressed with the room, he was really looking for something a little larger. The manager got very excited and took him to see the best suite in the hotel. It was called the Leonard Bernstein Suite and cost a mere $4,800 per night. Mike carried out an inspection of the suite and, as soon as he noticed the rain easing off a little, told the manager that he was very impressed with what he had seen and was looking forward to staying there on his next visit to Paris. Obviously, the tight game that Mike had chosen to play in the Aviation Club wasn’t the game at which he was best.


Free is Too Cheap

I like Jeff Shulman. I really like him, and it’s got nothing to do with his daddy owning this pkv games magazine, because his daddy doesn’t pay me enough to like anybody. Jeff would be a much more famous guy than he is (and we’d think Jesus was still just a God guy) had he not lost with a pair of sevens against Chris Ferguson’s pair of sixes for half the chips in play during the 2000 World Series of Poker. I’d like to think that I’d have taken this setback as well as Jeff has, but there’s no way I nor most others would have. Jeff is absolutely amazing for an American poker player, because he’s got a good sense of humor and is great fun to play with. But everybody has an off day, and Jeff certainly had one recently when he wrote an editorial in the American offshoot of Card Player Europe.


Ten years ago, Mike Sexton told anybody who’d listen in the bar of the Metropol Hotel in London that one day we would all be playing on TV for free. The English thought he was mad, and the Irish thought it was just the drink. Everybody else thought it was both. Imagine our surprise when the Professional Poker Tour commenced this year and 200 poker players were invited to play in five $500,000 events in a place known to us as America, and to Americans as the world, for free. Wow. Everybody was absolutely delighted, except for Jeff, seemingly. Jeff, by his own admission, played badly at the recent PPT event in L.A. and was struggling to find an excuse for his performance. He found one. He blamed his lack of concentration on the fact that he hadn’t had to part with any money to play in the event, and came up with the wonderful suggestion that we all pay an added entry fee to the free tournaments for his convenience. I rest my case.



Who Can Predict the Situs Domino99 A-League?

Who can predict the A-League? Just when it looked like the die had been cast for the season, a few results have turned everything on its head.


Brisbane Roar still retain their seven point lead at the top of the table, but they just cannot seem to beat their nemesis, the Newcastle Jets. The Jets unlikely 1-0 win at Suncorp Stadium on the weekend reminded everyone that, as good as they have been, Brisbane are beatable.


A seven-point lead with eight Situs Domino99 games remaining should be enough to see them claim the Premiership, but suddenly this week’s game against the rampaging Melbourne Heart (who would’ve thought we’d be saying that a month ago!) takes on more importance.


It’s top vs bottom, yet Heart come into this game having won four of their last five, including a 5-0 demolition of Wellington Phoenix in Wellington on Sunday, and chock full of confidence. The arrival of John van’t Schip and the sale of the club to Manchester City has given the red and whites new found belief and, as crazy as it sounds, they’re an outside chance for the top six.


It’s a long shot, but with eight games left to play they are sitting seven points behind sixth placed Sydney FC who probably best epitomise the inconsistent nature of the A-League this season.


The Sky Blues lost three of their first four games, then went on to win five of their next six before slumping again to win only two of their last nine. Yet in that horror run was arguably one of the best moments in the club’s short history – the 5-0 demolition of fierce rivals Melbourne Victory. In Melbourne, no less.


After enduring the week from hell Frank Farina’s side did what they had to do on Saturday and claimed all three points to put them back inside the top six. Reports suggest Farina needs a top four finish to guarantee his position for next season. And while they are only two points behind fourth, it would be a brave man who would suggest Sydney will achieve that.


The three teams with the toughest run home are Australia’s three participants in the AFC Champions League – Western Sydney Wanderers, Central Coast Mariners and Melbourne Victory.


After Melbourne overcame Thai side Muangthong United on Saturday night in Geelong to earn a place in the group stage, all three must now navigate their way through the group stages while also trying to maintain their Premiership and Championship hopes in the A-League.


Tony Popovic has been well aware of the looming congested schedule and has been preparing accordingly, rotating his squad regularly in the first four months of the season to ensure his players are fit and firing for the rigours of competing in two competitions.


All three clubs will play 13 games in 53-55 days, which equates to a game every four days. Add in the lengthy travel times to Japan, China and South Korea and all three clubs will need to be meticulous in their planning to ensure they can compete favourably in both competitions.


We’ve heard about the tough travel for A-League clubs in the past. It was always a pre-planned excuse for A-League teams who didn’t take the ACL as seriously as they should have. And while there is no doubt it is a factor, it will not change now or into the future. So rather than complain, clubs have to learn to adapt and plan their season accordingly.


While Popovic was criticised in some quarters for his constant tinkering, if the Wanderers can maintain their A-League title challenge and perform well in the ACL he will be proven correct, and may well create the template for other coaches to follow in the coming years.


The only A-League club to have any success in Asia is Adelaide United, and after a less than positive start to the season, things seem to have turned around for Josep Gombau’s side.


Lambasted at the start of the season for his decision to implement an entirely new philosophy and game style, and focusing on performance over results, it has started to pay off for Adelaide who have climbed to third on the table and are playing some of the best football in the league, led by their Argentine play maker Marcelo Carrusca who has just re-signed with the club for a further season, a massive boost to the club in the run in to the finals.


While there have been some obvious little tweaks to his plan from the start of the season, not much has changed at Adelaide other than the players are executing the game plan better than they were at the start of the season, which was always going to be the case as they grew more accustomed to the style.


This was clear to see in their second goal on the weekend when, as they have done all season, they opted to play out from the back through Eugene Galekovic. And whilst it almost came unstuck (it would have earlier in the season), the fact they were able to play their way out of trouble and in the space of a matter of passes find their way down the other end of the field to score the winning goal shows how far Adelaide has progressed.


With another eight matches to fine-tune their game plan in the run home they are a side every team will want to avoid come finals time.


And this weekend they have a great chance to cement their spot in the top three when they travel to Melbourne to take on their biggest rivals at AAMI Park. Adelaide fans still talk about the day they broke their hoodoo against Melbourne Victory with a 4-0 win at AAMI Park.


They would love nothing more than to repeat that feat this weekend.


But with just under a third of the season remaining there are no doubt a few more twists and turns left in this A-League season. Absolutely nothing can be taken for granted.


Colombian gold melts the solid Judi Online States



‘Meaningless’ friendlies are supposed to be on borrowed time. The national associations are getting fed up of endless spats with big clubs who don’t want their precious stars coming back injured from international duty.


But any skeptics of these games’ value should have been at Craven Cottage tonight where Colombia and the USA went at it all guns blazing.


The sell-out crowd who turned up on the back of both nations’ impressive World Cup showings got their value for money after a fiery friendly by the Thames.


Both teams picked up where their World Cups in Brazil had ended – the USA still stout, well-marshalled and trying to win via counter-attacks and set pieces against superior opponents, and Colombia fearlessly positive with an attacking and energetic game-plan.


The crowd made the occasion memorable. Despite Judi Online US Soccer hosting a ‘home’ game, London’s oft-forgotten Colombian community had turned out en masse: Cumbia drums, straw hats and flags aplenty, children decked out in national colours and plenty of beautiful women. This was a national carnival run riot.


When Colombia pulled back Jozy Altidore’s early penalty for the US with strikes from Carlos Bacca and Teofilo Gutierrez, their fans celebrated as wildly as anything Fulham had seen before. And whenever James Rodriguez, skippering the side, merely touched the ball, the decibel level shot up.


2-1 to Colombia was a fair result given their dominance of the 90 minutes, but once again Jurgen Klinsmann showed his US eleven are no pushovers and can startle the great, in this case the team who are third in the FIFA World Rankings.


The Americans kept their shape and solidity and in Brazil 2014 stars Kyle Beckerman, John Brooks and Jermaine Jones, have a new spine to build around.


The US also had attacking elements which could trouble Colombia, albeit in isolation. And they certainly had their chances.


Altidore, still forgotten about by Sunderland, maintained his double life as a first-choice international striker, worrying Colombia’s modest centre-back pairing of Pedro Franco and Jeison Murillo with his prize-fighter’s physique.


On the right flank, DeAndre Yedlin’s fast feet reminded Tottenham fans what they can look forward to when he makes the move from Seattle in 2015.


A quicksilver dash by Yedlin late in the game almost yielded a goal but Pablo Armero’s last gasp lunge saved the day.


Debutant US striker Rubio Rubin, all of 18 years old, was a revelation, slotting effortlessly into the starting lineup and providing Altidore with a talented foil in attack. On his knees in prayer before the kick-off, the Utrecht forward might have had divine assistance.


But the magic deserted him just after half time when he guided a header from Alejandro Bedoya’s delightful cross achingly just wide of the Colombian net.


The Hawaiian Bobby Wood, old by Rubin’s standards at 22, was another useful young marksman who equally spurned a chance, toe-poking a shot at Colombian goalie Camilo Vargas at the end of a lovely move forged by US substitutes DaMarcus Beasley and Lee Nguyen.


Rodriguez had it tough, surrounded by American jerseys every time he loitered in his favourite spot, in the centre, twenty yards from the opposition goal. His goalscoring threat remained limited to set pieces until on the hour mark he was instrumental in Colombia’s equaliser.


Combining with Bacca on the edge of the box, the Real Madrid man slotted his return pass expertly between US defenders for the Sevilla striker to bypass Brad Guzan and fire home from an acute angle.


Bacca found himself sidelined in Brazil but started tonight ahead of Jackson Martinez and Adrian Ramos, and made a virtuoso audition for being Colombia’s main striker in the absence of Falcao, who was watching from the stands, wrapped up warm and nursing a calf injury.


He almost found the target in the first half, swerving a shot inches wide of the post after twenty minutes and finding the woodwork on the half hour mark.


Colombia’s winner came three minutes from time when Gutierrez met a cross from substitute Edwin Cardona and flicked his header past the diving Guzan. It was as much as they deserved.


Juan Cuadrado, once again, was their real ace in the pack. The Fiorentina winger was the most lively of Jose Pekerman’s soldiers from the start, beat players with effortless abandon and almost scored himself late on when he forced Guzan into a diving stop.


Colombia have quickly come from nowhere, no World Cup qualification since 1998 to be precise, to being one of the most feared teams in the world.


Their insistence on playing on the front foot, often involving five men streaking upfield in attack, has rightly made them popular in world football, as have their joyful dancing celebrations, which they performed en cue in London this evening.


Being ranked just behind World Cup finalists Germany and Argentina is some reward for Brazil kicking them out at the quarter-final stage in the summer, with unpunished rotation fouling on James.


Maintaining that momentum into the 2016 Copa America and the 2018 World Cup with elevated expectations is now the challenge for their gentlemanly coach Jose Pekerman. On tonight’s evidence, their World Cup fever is still high.


The US, ranked 23rd by comparison, can console themselves with another steady performance with more promising youngsters making the step up to the national team. Klinsmann, who is also the technical director of US Soccer, is witnessing his masterplan of uniting the myriad branches of the American game beginning to bear fruit.


On Tuesday he takes his side to Dublin for a friendly with Eire, while Colombia visit the beautiful city of Ljubljana to take on Slovenia.


Unlike European teams who qualify for the European Championships, teams in North and South America qualify automatically for their regional tournaments, which makes games like tonight’s so vital for gaining experience.


Colombia and the United States at least, kept the friendly fires burning.


GOALS: Altidore (USA) 1:0 10′, Bacca (COL) 1:1 60′, Gutierrez (COL) 1:2 87′


USA: Guzan, Johnson, Garza (Beasley 70′), Brooks, Yedlin (Green 86′), Jones, Beckerman, Diskerud (Nguyen 78′), Bedoya (Morales 67′), Altidore, Rubin (Wood 67′)

COL: Vargas, Armero, Franco, Arias, Murillo, Aguilar (Cardona 74′), Sanchez, Cuadrado (Quintero 88′), Rodriguez, Gutierrez (Martinez 89′), Bacca (Ramos 79′)




England in extasy as Milan and Real Qiu Qiu Online fall



It looks like three English teams will make it to the semifinals of the Champions League, just like they did last season. Arsenal or Liverpool are sure to be there while Manchester United and specially Chelsea are favourits against Roma and Fenerbahce, respectively. We may well see a repetition of last year’s semifinals setup with Liverpool, United and Chelsea, with Barcelona instead of Milan this time.

Well, last year Milan defeated the English competitions, United by a 5-3 aggregate in the semis and Liverpool by 2-1 in the finals, but Milan is out, after being well defeated by Arsenal in the eight-finals.


Milan: End of an era

The Gunners cut short the magnificent Milan’s European run since the 2001/02 season. In the last six campaigns, Red and Blacks made it at least to the quarterfinals, in fact playing five times in the semifinals. Such balance made the Italians the most successful European side in the said period.

Since 2002, when they were stopped in the Qiu Qiu Online UEFA Cup semis by Borussia Dortmund until last season’s grand finale in Athens against Liverpool, Milan failed to make the last four just in 2003/04. On that occasion it took a magnificent performance by Deportivo to kick Silvio Berlusconi’s boy out of the competition.

Apart from that incident, Milan won the Champions League in 2003 and 2007, got narrowly beaten by Liverpool in 2005 and eliminated in the semis of 2006 by eventual winners Barcelona.


Arsenal have thus made history as the team that ended the latest era of Milan’s continental domination, but making it past Liverpool will take an extra effort. The Champions League is Rafael Benítez’s lucky ground and the Reds in Europe regularly look quite a different side, significantly superior to the one seen in the Premiership.

Prediction: Liverpool to progress


Manchester United last year demolished Roma by 7-1, the heaviest defeat in the club’s European history. This season in the group stage the Devils won by a mere 1-0, salvaging a draw in Rome. Francesco Totti and the rest of the ragazzi may be closing on United, but they are not matching them yet.

Prediction: Manchester United by a narrower margin this time


Of all English sides, Chelsea should have the easiest task against the ferocious Turks from Fenerbahce. The Canaries from Istambul boast a reported army of 20 million fans, but Roman Abramovich’s invested millions will count far more on the pitch.

Prediction: Chelsea absolutely must go through


In the remaining tie, the mighty Barcelona’s squad face Schalke, theoretically the weakest side left in the competition. The Germans are struggling even in the Bundesliga, where they have practically surrendered all chances of winning the title (the fans are accustomed to them doing that, by all means). But, this is a spirited, fighting German team which will engage Barca stars in a pitched battle with some, not many, hopes of pulling a stunning upset.

Prediction: Barcelona is so much more talented

Schalke 04 vs Porto 1-0 0-1 (4-1 pen)

Roma vs Real Madrid 2-1 2-1

Still alive and kicking Agen Slot ?



No, this blog is not dead (yet).


For the moment I´m putting more effort in my poker blog than in my sportsbetting blog and there are only 24 hours in a day. And off course you can only write about poker if you are playing poker.


Also don´t underestimate the effort needed to find each week interesting matches and try to come up with the good analysis. Therefore I have decided that for next season I will use a different approach.


Unibet offers each week a big  Toto. Each week 14 matches. Most of the time from England, France, Spain, Germany and Italy.


Filling out a ticket costs only 0,10€. With other words peanuts.


Each week I will discuss during the week these games and will fill in 5 to 10 tickets. So at maximum it will cost me one whole euro a week. An amount which I can easily miss (I hope!!).


This way I will rule out the mistake I sometimes make with selecting games with a feeling, which is not always a good thing to do.


Sometimes there are also midweek toto´s with for instance the Uefa Cup and/or Champions league matches. Depending on the time I have I will also give comment on these SuperToto. The disadvantage is that within these Toto´s you need to have 7 or 8 out of 8 correct to fall into the prices and only these toto´s are more expensive.


So at maximum there will be around 50€ at stake.


If someone is interested to help me with the games of Spain or France, please leave me a comment. My knowledge about these strong competition is pretty low, so help is always welcome.


Also my stats pages are going to change cause most of the stats which are present now will be meaningless within the new approach.


Weekend picks

Almost the end of the football season. An excellent time to prove that I have it in me to choose the correct bets with the correct result.



Nothing is decided yet. It is already know that Lierse or Beveren will relegate directly and that the other will have to play the face-offs. The title fight is getting to its summit. Anderlecht has to play a derby at home against Brussels (the president of Brussels promised an extra bonus if they beat Anderlecht) after there elimination in the Belgium Cup last Wednesday. Racing Genk has to face Charlerloi at home. Charlerloi was the only team who was capable of claiming the victory against in the first part of the season.


Racing Genk (2) – Charlerloi (5) (1.33, 4.50, 9.00)

It will be close but I expect a victory for Racing Genk, based on the home advantage. They never play good against Charlerloi but a lot is going on in Charlerloi. The head coach was sacked two weeks ago cause he signed for Club Brugge.



Still 3 teams in the running for the title. Schalke has a difficult away game at Dortmund. Stuttgart has to travel to Bochum and Werder has to face Frankfurt @ home.


Werder Bremen (3) – Frankfurt (14) (1.33, 4.50, 9.85)

Werder cannot afford a misstep in this phase of the competition. So it predict an easy victory for Werder.



The title is for Man U.


Liverpool (3) – Charlton (19) (1.40, 4.10, 8.50)

If Liverpool wins they are sure of the third place and direct qualification for the CL. Should not be a problem!



5 more match days to go. Barca has a lead of 2 points on Real and 4 on Sevilla. While the chances of Sevilla have decreased a lot after the loss against Real, they cannot be counted out (yet). Also curious how Barca is going to react on the blow they got in the Cup. A 4-0 loss in Getafe. I would stay away from the relegation battles, which will be fought this weekend. To much at stake and almost unpredictable.


Barcelona (1) – Betis Sevilla (15) (1.25 , 5.25, 12.00)

Again no double this year for Barcelona. Last Wednesday they got a blow which can count. Betis is going to pay the bill for this defeat in the semies of the Cup. I guess that Sevilla again is going to loose some points. So with a victory Barca can eliminate Sevilla in the title race.



Damp Start To The Togel Singapore K-League



Despite an exceptionally mild winter on the Korean peninsula, the media gloomily predicted that the K-League opening round of fixtures would be played under foul weather. According to the 14 coaches, it didn’t matter as they promised that a new era of attractive football would at least brighten moods, if not skies.


It didn’t really turn out that way – though Chunnam Dragons’ pink away kit shone through the greyness. The Gwangyang-based team sported the shirts in the season curtain-raiser at Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma. The match was the only Saturday game and gave champions Seongnam and the FA Cup holders a chance to get the ball rolling.


In truth, it wasn’t the best of games but matters livened up a little in the second half. Lively Chunnam striker Sandro Hiroshi had troubled the home defence all afternoon and his free-kick rebounded off the Seongnam wall to be hooked smartly home by the loitering Song Jong-hyun.


Seongnam fought back but it took the addition of substitute and $2 million new signing Choi Sung-kuk to make the difference. “Little Maradona” bamboozled sometime national team-mate Kim Jin-kyu and was brought down by the ex-Jubilo Iwata defender. Brazilian hotshot Mota made no mistake from the spot to earn a point for the champs.


The other six matches took place on a very wet and windy Sunday afternoon. The two biggest games of the day took place in Seoul and Suwon respectively. In the capital, it was supposed to be the start of a new era with new boss Senol Gunes. Turkey’s 2002 World Cup coach taking the reins.


There wasn’t much excitement on display in Seoul World Cup Stadium for the visit of Daegu. Most of the fans seemed more concerned with sitting far back enough to escape the reach of the rain and those who had their view blocked by umbrellas missed little of note in the first period.


The second half was slightly better though it was always going to be a mistake that decided the Togel Singapore game. It came just after half-time and a slip from a Daegu defender let in Lee Chung-yong and the 18 year-old slotted the ball home coolly. Soon after, substitute striker Jung Jo-gook fired home from 20 yards to seal the win for a sluggish Seoul side.


Ahn Jung-hwan was the big draw at Suwon Samsung Bluewings. The Lord of the Ring was making his first appearance in Asia’s oldest professional league since 2000 and seemed off the pace against Daejeon Citizen. The 31 year-old had little impact on the game and was withdrawn after 57 minutes, three minutes after Daejeon, a team that has a very good record against the three-time champions, took the lead.


Suwon fought back to equalize and then score the winner with four minutes remaining. Ahn Hyo-yeon headed home to ensure that at least one Ahn would make the headlines.


To the south-west, Asian champions Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors started in blistering fashion. New signing and Macedonia star striker Stevica Ristic needed only 50 seconds to get on the scoresheet at Gwangju Sangmu. 15 minutes later, 2006 Rookie of the Year Yeom Ki-hoon recorded his second assist of the day to set up Kim Hyeung-bom.


Lee Chun-soo was nowhere to be seen as Ulsan Hyundai Horang-I took the lead at home to Gyeongnam FC. Unfortunately for the 2005 champions, Everaldo De Jesus Pereira marked his K-League debut with a goal to earn a 1-1 draw for the visitors.


Incheon United could be in for a long season as they crashed to an opening-day home defeat at the hands of Pohang Steelers. Pohang boss Sergio Farias said earlier in the week that Koh Ki-goo was capable of replacing Lee Dong-gook. Few believed the Brazilian but Koh grabbed the only goal of the game on the west coast.…

What Skeptical Finance Workers Say About Crypto Gamblingv



As our readers may know, I am a cryptocurrency evangelist and love to talk about Bitcoin and altcoins until I am blue in the face with anyone who will listen. Apart from fielding questions and concerns from Bitcoin beginners, this means that I also talk to many people who either do not fully understand cryptos or people who have absolutely no faith in them.


Recently I had two of these conversations, one with a close friend and one with a close family member. Both of these individuals remain skeptical of and cynical about Bitcoin, and both of them are heavily involved in traditional investments.



One of these two works for one of the largest investment and financial services banks in the world as a consultant. He knows finance back to front, and is an incredibly sharp person. He fails to see Bitcoin as anything more permanent than a financial fad. That is to say, he does not believe that cryptocurrencies’ tokens will have huge impacts on the global markets.


He may not be entirely off about this. We keep talking about how the market cap for Bitcoin and other altcoins is incredibly high, but they’ve only recently passed the value of some -albeit large- companies. Cryptos may just not be on the caliber needed yet to be game changing as currencies. Though, the Consultant did concede that trading may still be viable, since many businesses that he is invested in also are not fundamentally shaping the market with their overall value.


What he did find most valuable was the concept of the Blockchain. For the Consultant, a distributed public ledger could bring markets and many other aspects of financial life closer to a trustless business model. This is what he thinks can be a game changer. Though, he noted that since the technology is open source, the Blockchain can be implemented without having tokens themselves being traded -however I suspect that as long as tokens are mined/minted, people will trade them as assign them value-.



The other individual in our two stories is a good friend of mine who works as a Quantitative Data Scientist, he also is very active on the stock market. He and I will text daily about various positions on the market. “Wtf is Tesla doing right now?!” “Ahh! I should’ve shorted Snapchat!” and other messages like this are typical for some of our conversations. I’ll also add in “Hey, did you see that Bitcoin passed $2,000 a coin today?!”


He always is flabbergasted by the performance of Bitcoin, and other alts. “But it’s not backed by anything, like, no institutions are buying it up or have it in reserve like USD.” Again, he is not wrong. Bitcoin is not a reserve currency like USD is. Bitcoin is also the antithesis of many values which large banking institutions -both private and government- hold. He does admit that there may be some money to be made -and lost- in the volatile nature of cryptos.


I think the heart of his thinking here is that Bitcoin, to both of them really, does not seem like a long term viable investment in Crypto Gambling. For me, this is a difference of opinion. Where they are placing more faith in current institutions -that may adopt various aspects of cryptocurrencies-, I place more faith in the disruptive power of cryptocurrencies to institutional norms.…

Instant Energy without Energy Drinks and Energy nutrition by Vimgo


In today’s world there is no such thing as too much energy. Everyone wants energy, as much as they can pack in. And they want to have the energy instantly. Energy drinks have filled in this modern human need quite effectively. They give you the instant burst of energy that you always wanted. Energy when you need it — like flicking a switch.

Many people go for energy drinks at times of increased physical and mental stress — to improve their alertness, concentration, and performance. Surveys have shown that many of the world’s top athletes and drivers consume energy drinks. Many people with active lifestyles depend on energy drinks to revitalize their body and mind. While the short-term effectiveness of energy drinks cannot be disputed, their long-term effects need to be carefully studied.


Energy drink companies also claim that their products enhance focus and concentration, improve short term memory, and contain much less sugars than normal soft drinks.

Most energy drinks are said to provide a combination of B vitamins, amino acids, and stimulants such as caffeine or guarana. Energy drinks come in different fruity flavors. What energy drinks do is convert sugars contained in them (fructose and glucose) into energy and at the same time stimulate the red blood cells to release more oxygen. This is the source of the instant energy in the energy drinks.


Energy nutritionEnergy drinks also contain citric acid which is harmful to the teeth. The unpredictability of the use of energy drinks lies in the fact that they produce different reactions in different people. Energy drinks have stimulating properties that can boost the heart rate and blood pressure. Taken in excess, energy drinks can dehydrate the body and, like other stimulants, they also prevent sleep.


But as long as the modern world demands high-intensity bursts of energy from the human beings who run it, people will continue to consume energy drinks. The question is how to get instant energy without the drawbacks associated with energy drinks.


Fortunately, there is a way out. The wonder sugars that can keep you in a high-energy orbit without the harmful effects associated with energy drinks have now been discovered. A lot of research is currently going on into the role played by glyconutrients, a class of saccharides usually found in plant sugars, in the development of the human body. Glyconutrients are called ‘sugars that heal’ for the amazing role they play in human health.


Glyconutrients are necessary for some of the fundamental biochemical processes in the body, such as cell-to-cell communication. Eight of these sugars have been identified as particularly useful for the body. Our diets usually provide us with two of these eight sugars. The rest of the sugars can also be supplemented by taking fruits and vegetables. But glyconutrients are found only in fruits grown organically and these have to be consumed within 24 hours to get the right amount of nutrition.


Energy drinks and supplements with glyconutrients – called glyconutritionals –are now available. For your body to be free of fatigue and to perform optimally, the bodily functions have to take place like clockwork. This is what the glyconutrients do – they keep the communication links open between cells.


With glyconutrients keeping cellular communication pathways open, and the immune and endocrine systems in top working order, your body will not feel any fatigue.
