Dann sprechen wir über die Entscheidung eines Pariser Gerichts vom Montag, den rechtsextremen Präsidentschaftskandidaten Eric Zemmour wegen Volksverhetzung zu einer Geldstrafe von 10.000 Euro zu verurteilen. Anschließend besprechen wir neue Forschungsergebnisse, die in der Zeitschrift Science veröffentlicht wurden.

If you hold bitcoin, 2022 may be the time to make your New Year resolutions to get your Bitcoin estate planning in order. Everyone approaches crypto differently: Entry level people will probably be on exchanges; more intermediary users may have their own software or hardware wallets. Hardcore bitcoiners probably have hardware wallets, cold storage and maybe even paper wallets – most likely in a multisig structure. Have you named beneficiary designations? Newer bitcoiners most likely hold their crypto on exchanges (Kraken, Binance, Coinbase, etc.). The most important question is: does your exchange allow beneficiary designations? This means filling out a form which says that, upon your death, your account should go to a certain person. (This is similar to naming a beneficiary on your IRA or life insurance). Some exchanges appear to be slowly adopting beneficiary designations. Having a beneficiary is a great way to make sure that someone knows that you own crypto! If beneficiary designations are allowed, are yours up to date? Does it reflect your current wishes, or is it still in the name of your girlfriend from ten years ago? This would not make your current spouse very happy; believe me – we've seen it before! No need to leave those emotional messes for your grieving family. It's very important to make sure your beneficiary designations are up to date on all accounts, not just your crypto. Check your letter of instruction and devices Intermediate bitcoiners usually have multiple accounts and hardware wallets/devices. These bitcoiners have self-custody, which means they have more control over their bitcoin than if they were using an exchange. If you have self-custody, check whether you have a basic letter of instruction. This letter tells your heirs/family that you have cryptocurrency, where the accounts are held, and where any wallets are located. If you have software wallet, let your heirs know the name of the software wallet or app. They might think Kraken is just a video game on your phone! Be sure to continually update your letter of instruction because the wallets you have this year may be different from a year ago. If you haven't touched your wallets or nodes in a while (which is totally normal for “cold storage”), there is a chance that those versions and firmware are not up to date. The latest security standards may not be in place. Less savvy heirs/family may be stressed about locating and accessing your bitcoin. It will be much harder for them if they find out they have to run updates before they can proceed. A lot of hardware wallets rely on batteries. Check in every once in a while, to make sure the batteries are able to power up. Does your multisig still work? I am not a hardcore user, so bear with me on this one. Advanced bitcoiners may have a multisig recovery and inheritance plan. That means that there is no single key to access their hoard of bitcoin; there are layers of protection. For example, you will need 2 out of 3 keys, etc. in order to access the account. As discussed above, make sure you have updated versions of everything and that everything still works. Imagine how hard it is for someone new to crypto to wrap their head around “multisig,” “hardware wallet signature,” etc. Another important thing to do is make sure all of your signers are alive. For example, you have a 2 of 5 multisig. You have at least 3 of the keys, your spouse has one, and your cousin has another. That way, if anything happens to you, your spouse and cousin can put their keys together with yours and be able to access the account. But, is your cousin still alive and able to perform his duties? Is he still a valid keyholder? Does he still have his key, and does it still work? You can't just check your own keys; you have to check everyone's, because otherwise it's pointless. Multisig is new to me, so I am not sure how to confirm that a multisig actually works. Do you really need to do an annual test with all the keyholders, or do you assume that their keys work if yours do? It would be a shame to go through the trouble of setting up a multisig and then for some reason it fails upon your death. I would love to hear from someone more technologically advanced to help answer these questions. We're trying something new - If you've enjoyed our bitcoin blogs, we're working on adding a link below for bitcoin tipping.

Wir beginnen mit dem ersten Jahrestag des Sturms auf das US-Kapitol in Washington am 6. Januar. Danach sprechen wir über die Schließung von unabhängigen Medienkanälen in Hongkong, die von der chinesischen Regierung als aufrührerisch angesehen werden. Im wissenschaftlichen Teil unseres Programms diskutieren wir über die Arbeit eines Forscherteams aus Tokio an einem neuen Impfstoff, der die menschliche Lebenserwartung erhöhen könnte. Und zum Schluss sprechen wir über die Entscheidung des russischen Justizministeriums, zwei Mitglieder der feministischen Punkrock-Band Pussy Riot auf die Liste der „ausländischen Agenten“ zu setzen. Jetzt geht es weiter mit der Ankündigung für den zweiten Teil unseres Programms, „Trending in Germany“. Wir sprechen über die Entscheidung des Bundesverfassungsgerichts, dass in Deutschland eine gesetzliche Grundlage geschaffen werden muss, die es illegal macht, Behinderte im Falle notwendiger Triage-Entscheidungen zu benachteiligen. Wir werden auch darüber sprechen, dass der neue Agrarminister Cem Özdemir für seine Forderung kritisiert wurde, die Lebensmittelpreise anzuheben. Er argumentiert, dass dies notwendig für den Klimaschutz sei, aber er hat die soziale Komponente nicht berücksichtigt. - 6.

Nifty50 surged 272 points or 1.6 percent on the first day of the New Year to close at 17,626 levels on January 3. Intermediate trend turned bullish as Nifty has broken out from the downward sloping trendline, adjoining the highs of October 19 and November 15, 2021. During the last week, Nifty has surpassed the crucial resistances of 50 and 100-day EMA (exponential moving average) which gives further evidence of an uptrend. Short term indicators and oscillators like DMI (directional movement index), RSI (relative strength index) and MFI (money flow index) have been showing strength in the uptrend of Nifty. In the Index Futures segment, FIIs have been creating fresh longs, where their net long to short ratio is above two. In other words, out of their total positions in the Index Futures, 70 percent is in long side while 30 percent is in short side. In the Option segment, we have seen aggressive Put writing at 17200-17300 levels. This level also coincides with the 20-day EMA which is currently placed at 17237 odd levels. Therefore, we believe that short term trend will remain bullish till Nifty is trading above 17,200 levels. Next upside targets for Nifty is seen around 17,805 levels, followed by 18,000 levels. Longs should be protected with trailing stop-loss of 17,200 in Nifty.

Inez Wyrick, one of our young bassist pedagogy pioneers, passed away at the end of 2021.  In this episode, we rebroadcast our interview with her from 2016 and reflect on her impact on countless bassists across the globe. About Inez (from Tribute Archive): She began performing music in the 8th grade with her father, and taught music, and served as a psychic consultant for the entirety of her adult life, never fully retiring. She served on the Board of Directors for the International Society of Bassists who awarded her the “Young Bass Ambassador” award in 2001, and which, starting in 2022, is named the Under 14 Solo Prize the “Inez Wyrick Prize,” in her honor.  She was also Co-founder and Co-Artistic Director of the Bass Coalition Summer Workshop. In addition to teaching music privately, she also served on the faculties of Shenandoah Conservatory, Indiana University's String Academy, Amarillo College, Odessa College, and Texas Tech University's Orchestra Camp. She founded the Amarillo Bass Base, the first organization of its kind for young bassists, and members of her family of students over the years teach and hold professional positions in ensembles, music businesses, and educational institutions worldwide.  An active lecturer, clinician, and adjudicator, Inez appeared regularly at the Richard Davis Bass Conference, Golden Gate Bass Camp, and International Society of Bassists conventions. She has had over 500 arrangements/compositions published for Double Bass Ensemble.
