A New Technology Stack? Introducing the Internet Computer: DFINITY - Dominic Williams
 
22:56
For almost a decade, a technology has been in development that is set to define a new digital era. The global “Internet Computer” is a largely unforeseen development emerging from the field of secure distributed computation. This technological phenomenon has the ability to free us from reliance on tech giants such as Facebook, Paypal, and Amazon Web Services. Together with developments in self-sovereign identity, the Internet Computer will completely change our relationship with the digital world. About DFINITY: The DFINITY project was formed to research ways of enabling public decentralized networks to host a virtual computer of unlimited capacity. This rests upon a new blockchain computer that is similar in concept to Ethereum but has vastly improved performance and, ultimately, unlimited capacity.

Australian Market Report of October 12: Watching the US Earnings Results
 
04:02
Dow index hit a fresh 2009 high on Friday after the earnings season kicked off. Upbeat forecasts on IT giants IBM and Intel fueled the market's growing expectations over a profit recovery. S&P's 500 and Nasdaq both gained more than 4.5 per cent for the week. The Australian market closed slightly lower on Friday as investors remained cautious to the US corporate results. Uncertainty may continue to weigh on the local market as more major US companies are scheduled to release their earnings this week. The benchmark S&P/ASX200 index Friday dropped 15.7 points, or 0.33 per cent, to 4752.9. For the week, the ASX200 rose 3.3 per cent. The broader All Ordinaries index lost 8.8 points, or 0.18 per cent, to 4754.5 on Friday. Key Economic Facts and Figures Australia's major banks have tipped that they will increase mortgage rates by more than the official Reserve Bank rises in the coming months because they are facing higher costs of raising money in the wholesale markets. But Treasurer Wayne Swan says the big four banks cannot justify raising interest rates by more than the Reserve Bank of Australia's 25-basis-point increase. Today the Australian Bureau of Statistics will release lending finance data for August. M&A News Felix Resources (ASX:FLX) said China's Yanzhou Coal Mining (SHA:600188) today will resubmit the application for its A$3.54 billion bid for Felix to Australia's Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) for a second time. Yanzhou withdrew and resubmitted its application for the first time last month. Mirvac Group (ASX:MGR) has entered into a Merger Implementation Deed with Mirvac Real Estate Investment Trust (ASX:MRZ) in relation to a A$256 million offer to acquire all the issued units in MRZ. Mirvac Group's offer is proposed to be implemented by way of a trust scheme, valuing the trust units at 54 cents. Mirvac currently owns 24.6 per cent of MRZ. Important Corporate News Toll road operator Transurban (ASX:TCL) has posted toll revenue of growth of A$206.9 million for the September quarter, an increase of 6.8 per cent on the prior corresponding quarter. All Australian assets reported traffic growth for the quarter. Toll revenue growth exceeded traffic growth on six out of seven roads. Fortescue Metals Group (ASX:FMG) says its September quarter production exceeded guidance by 9 per cent and reiterated its forecasts for the December quarter. The group also plans to spend A$360 million to fast-track the development of its Christmas Creek mine, which would increase its total annual iron ore production to about 55 million metric tonnes. Lend Lease (ASX:LLC) plans to become a stapled entity on ASX. This will be achieved by distributing units in a newly created trust, Lend Lease Trust to shareholders on a 1:1 basis and stapling each unit and share together to form a stapled security. Office service firm Servcorp Limited (ASX:SRV) plans to sell new shares to institutions and retail investors to raise A$80 million to fund its growth and take advantage of depressed prices for real estate. The company will raise A$51 million from an institutional placement and A$29 million from a one-for-11 accelerated non-renounceable entitlement offer. Seven Network (ASX:SEV) says its holding in James Packer's Consolidated Media Holdings (ASX:CMJ) has risen to 20.96 per cent after an on-market share buyback by ConsMedia reduced the number of shares on issue. Meridian Minerals Limtied (ASX:MII) said the FIRB has approved the investment of A$10.5 million into Meridian by Chinese company Northwest Mining and Geology Group Co. Ltd for Nonferrous Metals (NWME). NWME will subscribe to Meridian shares in a placement at a share price of A$0.08

Geographically located in the South Central region of the country, Texas shares borders with the U.S. states of Louisiana to the east, Arkansas to the northeast, Oklahoma to the north, New Mexico to the west, and the Mexican states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León, and Tamaulipas to the southwest, while the Gulf of Mexico is to the southeast. Houston is the most populous city in Texas and the fourth largest in the U.S., while San Antonio is the second-most populous in the state and seventh largest in the U.S. Dallas–Fort Worth and Greater Houston are the fourth and fifth largest metropolitan statistical areas in the country, respectively.

The "Lone Star" can be found on the Texas state flag and on the Texan state seal. The origin of Texas's name is from the word taysha, which means "friends" in the Caddo language.Due to its size and geologic features such as the Balcones Fault, Texas contains diverse landscapes common to both the U.S. Southern and Southwestern regions.

The term "six flags over Texas" refers to several nations that have ruled over the territory. Spain was the first European country to claim the area of Texas. France held a short-lived colony. Mexico controlled the territory until 1836 when Texas won its independence, becoming an independent Republic. In 1845, Texas joined the union as the 28th state. The state's annexation set off a chain of events that led to the Mexican–American War in 1846. A slave state before the American Civil War, Texas declared its secession from the U.S. in early 1861, and officially joined the Confederate States of America on March 2 of the same year. After the Civil War and the restoration of its representation in the federal government, Texas entered a long period of economic stagnation. Historically four major industries shaped the Texas economy prior to World War II: cattle and bison, cotton, timber, and oil. Before and after the U.S. Civil War the cattle industry, which Texas came to dominate, was a major economic driver for the state, thus creating the traditional image of the Texas cowboy. In the later 19th century cotton and lumber grew to be major industries as the cattle industry became less lucrative. It was ultimately, though, the discovery of major petroleum deposits (Spindletop in particular) that initiated an economic boom which became the driving force behind the economy for much of the 20th century. With strong investments in universities, Texas developed a diversified economy and high tech industry in the mid-20th century. As of 2015, it is second on the list of the most Fortune 500 companies with 54. With a growing base of industry, the state leads in many industries, including agriculture, petrochemicals, energy, computers and electronics, aerospace, and biomedical sciences. Texas has led the U.S. in state export revenue since 2002, and has the second-highest gross state product. If Texas were a sovereign state, it would be the 10th largest economy in the world.
