The Disrupted Universe | Midas Letter

This month, I launched a new product called “The Disruptors.” (Check out our shop page) I wanted to talk today about why I am so thrilled to have this new service rolling out on the Wealth Press platform.  I’m not just thrilled – I’m proud. Proud of the people on the Wealth Press and Midas team for coming together in such a tremendous demonstration of what can be accomplished when the focus is on creating a product that reflects not just the character but the values and standards of the person for whom the product is being developed. It means that I have been able to, for the first time, focus on identifying and articulating the opportunity inherent in our disrupted universe and how, with a little help, every single investor across every walk of life should be able to… Source link

Rudy Giuliani and Roger Ailes: Cold Fusion

Cold Fusion “I THINK WE HAD a great week,” Rudy Giuliani’s deputy campaign manager, Ken Caruso, said Satur­day at the official unveiling of the TV ad on Dinkins’s failure to file tax returns 20 years ago. “Jackie Mason went too far, and he was removed from the campaign. But today the issue is taxes…” A campaign is like a miniseries: It develops the hero’s character slowly until a defining moment broadcasts it in simplified form to everyone. Many voters now think Rudy has the sense of humor of a wet troll, especially after the infamous “fancy schvartze” joke, and that will be hard to shake in the month left before election day. “The question isn’t really how Jack­ie… Source link

Why is Adobe Called Adobe? The Story of Garage Startup to Empire

Have you ever wondered why Adobe is called Adobe? Or perhaps you are curious about how the company went from a garage startup to one of the most powerful software companies in the world. In this 17-minute video, ColdFusion answers those questions and more. John Warnock and Charles Geschke, the founders of Adobe, left their employer Xerox Parc to create their own business after Xerox refused to commercialize a technology the two developed. That technology, called PostScript, is today still the graphics industry standard for printers. As we know now, the decision to leave Xerox was the right one. Why did they choose the name Adobe? The answer is rather simple: it was the name of a creek that ran behind Warnock’s house. The… Source link

10 big things: A VC-backed breakthrough in nuclear fusion

At the center of our solar system is the sun, a turbulent sphere of incandescent plasma that has burned for the past 4.6 billion years, providing the energy that powers almost every living thing on Earth. The means of creating this energy is relatively simple, but also mind-boggling: Every second, the sun transforms some 600 million tons of hydrogen into helium through a process called nuclear fusion, converting tiny bits of matter into almost unfathomable amounts of energy.  Scientists have long dreamed of mimicking the sun’s immense power here on Earth. A startup that has raised nearly $265 million in venture capital is working with researchers from MIT to do just that. And now, they’ve published a series of new studies indicating that the fusion revolution may be closer than anyone… Source link

NASA Claims Cold Fusion Without Naming It

Do you remember in 1989 when two chemists announced they’d created a setup that created nuclear fusion at room temperature? Everyone was excited, but it eventually turned out to be very suspect. It wasn’t clear how they detected that fusion occurred and only a few of the many people who tried to replicate the experiment claimed success and they later retracted their reports. Since then, mentioning cold fusion is right up there with perpetual motion. Work does continue though, and NASA recently published several papers on lattice confinement fusion which is definitely not called cold fusion, although it sounds like it to us. The idea of trapping atoms inside a metallic crystal lattice isn’t new, dating back to the 1920s. It sounds as though the NASA method uses… Source link

Manchester United may move for Ismaila Sarr

Manchester United have made contact with Watford over the signing of their forward Ismaila Sarr. The club are losing hope of being able to sign Jadon Sancho, reports the Independent. The 20-year-old England international and his agents have reportedly agreed terms with United but there could be too many other problems that prevent an agreement with Borussia Dortmund. The German club are supposed to want around £110 million for Sancho, with much of the fee paid up front, and Ed Woodward believes that such demands are unreasonable for a relatively inexperienced player, especially due to the financial impact of coronavirus on football finances in general. Nevertheless, a move had not yet been completely given up on, but United are now looking at alternatives, though whether the… Source link

Taking stock of the US economy and looking forward: My long-read Q&A with Glenn Hubbard | American Enterprise Institute

For the 200th episode of Political Economy, I spoke with economist R. Glenn Hubbard about how the Great Pandemic has affected and will continue to affect the US economy, lessons to be learned from the Great Recession and 15 years of disappointing productivity growth, and a variety of looming issues such as the deficit that future policymakers will need to consider. Glenn is a visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a former chairman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers for the Bush White House. He is also both dean emeritus and the Russell L. Carson Professor of Economics and Finance at Columbia Business School. What follows is a lightly edited transcript of our conversation, including brief portions that were cut from the original podcast. You can… Source link

NASA lands on a middle path to nuclear fusion

Earlier this year, a team of scientists based at NASA’s Glenn Research Center reported on a novel, promising method for generating nuclear fusion reactions in solid-state materials they termed “lattice confinement fusion.”  The experimental results and theoretical analysis were published in separate articles in the April issue of the authoritative nuclear physics journal Physical Review C. Apart from their great scientific interest, the results demonstrate a novel approach to realizing nuclear fusion as a practical energy source, one that exploits the so-called “electron screening” effect to drastically increase the rates of fusion and other nuclear reactions. As I shall explain below, “electron screening” is a well-known phenomenon in the fusion field… Source link
