Samsung Builds Bitcoin Mining Rig From Old Phones


Image: Kyle Wiens

The tech giant known as Samsung has reportedly used old cell phones to create a Bitcoin mining rig. This is part of Samsung's new upcycling program. This shows that there's, even more, support for Bitcoin which might cause to price to increase once again.

Samsung has been reported to use some of their older technology to create a Bitcoin mining rig. The phones used are the Galaxy S5s and around forty of them were used. It's more energy efficient when compared to mining with a desktop computer. However, that's with around eight phones. This rig was revealed at a conference for Samsung developers. It's also the project of the Creative Lab over at Samsung.

Samsung's news upcycling program has turned an old phone into an Ubuntu (Linux operating system) laptop.

Samsung has also mentioned that they will be making the software available to everyone. If this goes through, it will certainly be a reason for people to buy some old tech and have some fun with it or do many other things with the repurposed technology.

Robin Schultz, a Samsung spokesperson said to motherboard “innovative platform provides an environmentally responsible way for old Galaxy mobile devices to breathe new life, providing new possibilities and potential extended value for devices that might otherwise be forgotten in desk drawers or discarded.”

The tech that can be reused again and again like this would prove to be extremely useful for people who enjoy doing projects with tech on their spare time. It might also be useful for the average person who wants to start small projects for fun. It's even good for people who just like older tech and want to use it.

Syria's Largest oil Feild Recaptured From ISIS

US-led coalition forces carry out a large-scale attack on Syria’s Omar oil field


The terrorist group known as Daesh ( also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) has lost yet again more territory. This time it was an oil field in Syria.  The U.S led coalition has said that allied forces captured the oil field fro ISIS on Sunday. The oil field is known as Al-Omar oil field.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have said the oil field was captured in a “swift and wide military operation.”

It's been said that some ISIS members retreat to nearby areas and firefights are currently still going on in those regions.

Now that the terrorist group is in retreat it's turned into somewhat of a race for the Syrian government and SDF to secure areas of the province known as Deir el-Zour. The province is said to be rich with oil.

The SDF said that government forces were around three kilometers away from the fields. It's also been reported that government forces were taking heavy fire from Daesh and had to retreat.

This is another victory against the extremist group in a long line of victories.  A few months ago the Iraqis were thinking about celebrating the victory of the Mosul capture from Daesh.

You can read our article on that here http://www.vanguardnews.ca/2017/07/iraqis-might-celebrate-mosul-capture.html

The city of Raqqa was retaken from Daesh recently after a long battle. The battle is said to have lasted around four months. The city was reported to be previously under control of Daesh for several years.

Politicians Want To Deploy Military To No-Go Zones

In Sweden, it has been reported that the Moderate Party has around twenty members that have proposed the idea to send troops into some of the most intense and dangerous no-go zones in the nation. This would be done to help try and deter illegal activities.

Police officers can't seem to head into the zones because of the sheer fact that violence erupts when they do. Officers have been attacked on more than one occasion in these zones. It's been said that these zones can also be dangerous for journalists.

Mikael Cederbratt, a Moderate Party politician said:  “The situation in our areas of exclusion has deteriorated. The gangs have taken over and the police have had to retreat. Swedish law no longer applies there.”

“It is absolutely necessary to do something, because these gangs are like cancerous tumors in our country, and it is urgent. My absolute belief is that we, the nation of Sweden, must declare war on criminal gangs,”

“It is the responsibility of the state to maintain the law, especially the police. But the police today do not have the numerical ability to maintain public order,” He continued.

This is something that is not often heard about. However, in this case, it has become such a horrendous situation that it's become a thought to bring in the Swedish Armed Forces since the manpower is needed to get the job done this time around.

Mikael Cederbratt seemed to have the support of several other party members.

Steven Crowder Infiltrates Antifa And Finds Scary Info With Alleged Members





Steven Crowder and his host Jared (also referred to as not gay Jared) decided to go into the depths of the far left group known as Antifa. The Lowder With Crowder team got some great footage and audio of alleged Antifa members ready to use violence against the opposition. They even got names, and possibly some faces of the radicals. Antifa has in several cases been violent in and Crowder wanted to inform people on the subject.

The Louder With Crowder team devised a great plan to infiltrate Antifa undercover and record it all at the same time. This was truly a dangerous thing to do because knives ended up being handed out and guns were said to have been available for use against the opposition of Antifa. They sent Jared who works with Steven and is well known on his online show called Louder With Crowder. Jared had changed his appearance and was made to look like a typical millennial. He had long hair and wore average clothing that anyone could be seen wearing around any city.

You might be asking yourself well what about online contact? They had that covered as well. The Louder With Crowder team got some burner phones and tried to get into the entire Antifa organization. They had gained the trust of some radical members and met them in person to install an encrypted messaging app. Once installed more info was given to the undercover team that would then be used to meet up at a location. Jared managed to get out before anything wild happened.

Jared met the Antifa members at the place of higher education and discussed what's going to be done. He also had several questions to ask them such as "who else is going to be coming today."

The code names that the undercover team managed to get was Honeybee who was said to have been arrested later that day for tasing someone. They got Will who may not to have a code name. They may have also gotten other code names.

At least two members had weapons within the area. One of the alleged members was handing out weapons that seemed to be a screw driver or ice pick.

the other was said to have guns in his trunk. The member claimed to have a regular rifle, assault rifle, and shotgun that was "sawed off style." There was even said to be "two AKs coming." All of this was supposed to be for protection against the opposition.

More members showed up later and Jared ended up leaving since he didn't want to be involved with any violence. The LWC team was said to have handed over the footage to police who were supposed to look into the issue.

It must also be noted that the information in this article was taken from the video provided by the Louder With Crowder team. We encourage you to watch the video so you can see everything in full context.

Bitcoin Hits $7,000 CAD

Bitcoin (pixabay)


In a turn of events that not many people think would happen so soon has just happened. This is yet another milestone that they cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin has hit within the last 3 months. Can it keep rinsing "to the moon" as some users say?

Bitcoin which is a noticeable cryptocurrency run by ordinary people all around the world. It came out around 2008. It gained popularity because it gave people the freedom to buy whatever they want without being traced by governments and or people.

Some of the milestones hit by it were $5,000 $5,500, and $5,900 CAD. A few months ago one whole Bitcoin was worth a mere $3,500 CAD. That's almost unimaginable. It's currently at a whopping $7,000 CAD which really makes a lot of people happy because if they save their coins up, they made some good money.

There was some bump in the roads when it came out that the Chinese government had been reportedly shutting down Bitcoin exchanges. This caused a slight price drop but it recovered several weeks later. A situation where a price drop occurs usually every now and then.

The continued success of this particular cryptocurrency is simply the support that it has received from both countries around the world and ordinary people that love the features of it.

If you're interested in getting your share of Bitcoin you can by buying some on exchanges, getting it from faucets, buying it from Bitcoin ATMs, you can also gamble to get it but if you do gamble responsibly.

Will Bitcoin keep rising? Probably and the reason the answer might be so easy is that of the simple law of supply and demand. There's a limited number of Bitcoins that can be found and "mined" There cannot be more than that. When the max is reached or you come close to the max amount that can be found it's certain that the price will skyrocket because of a high demand and low supply.

Mike Pence Wants To See People On The Moon

Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence has said that he would like to see humans back on the moon. A place where humans have not been for an extended period of time. He was speaking to the National Space Council.

Pence feels that this would be a "stepping stone' for future exploration of space for humans.

"We will return astronauts to the Moon - not only to leave behind footprints and flags but to build the foundation we need to send Americans to Mars and beyond," he stated. Mike Pence said.

This might also be something that the Trump White House would like to focus on when it gets its nomination in place for Nasa administrator.

Mike Pence also said that U.S space policy has lost its edge and needs to reassert itself. This can be done if people head back to the earth's largest satellite, the moon.

Going back to a place where we once left would be unique and useful to gain knowledge about the area and Mars itself.

"The president has charged us with laying the foundation for America to maintain a constant commercial human presence in low-Earth orbit. From there, we will turn our attention back toward our celestial neighbors," Pence said.

NASA is supposedly looking into building what they call a Deep Space Gateway. It's essentially a lunar base. It could end up being a testing ground for astronauts and their equipment in space.

Several partners have been asked to think about some of the technology that they would contribute. These partners include Canada, Europe, and Russia.

Robert Lightfoot, Nasa's acting administrator, said: "Nasa has been directed to develop a plan for an innovative and sustainable programme of exploration with commercial and international partners to enable human expansion across the Solar System, returning humans to the Moon for long-term exploration and utilisation, followed by human missions to Mars and other destinations."

Microsoft Bringing New Edge Apps To IOS, Android


Microsoft building (Pixabay) 

Microsoft is reportedly bringing the Edge experience to the mobile devices sector. It's something that's been long awaited since the release of Windows 10. It's coming to both IOS and Android devices.

They're supposedly not bringing the "browser" to mobile devices but are instead bringing the look and feel of the Edge browser. It's something that will be unique for users.

While users should be able to still transfer and sync their bookmarks, favorites, reading view and more, Microsoft is also going to try out a new feature that's been called the "continue on PC."

It's certainly something unique for Microsoft and it could very well become popular. This is because some people prefer having everything in one place. As in if they look something up on their phone, they might want to be able to hop on their PC and continue reading, watching that video or more. It's really helpful for people that switch from device to device often.

The IOS app is said that it's going to use Webkit. The Android app will use the Chromium Blink engine. This is instead of using the Microsoft EdgeHTML rendering engine.

Many people who already enjoy Windows 10 have wanted that same Edge experience on their phones but could not get it. Once the app is released they can finally get that same experience on their mobile devices.

Marilyn Manson injured after stage props fall during his most recent concert in New York at the Hammerstein Ballroom, shock rocker Marilyn Manson, 48, was injured by a large stage prop during his performance of his hit cover song, Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This).

He was immediately rushed to the hospital, and although it is not yet known how severe his injuries are, he appeared to have injured his leg specifically and was clearly in pain after the onstage accident.

According to witnesses, he pulled the stage prop, which depicted 2 large guns, down when he climbed onto it. One of the many people who attended the concert and witnessed the accident.

23-year-old Yousif Al Zaid, claimed, "when he fell they closed the curtain on the stage and dimmed the lights. They then escorted everyone out.” Another fan, who had been sitting in the front seat and chose not to disclose his or her name,

 “From my viewpoint in the front row, it didn’t look like he put that much weight on it (the prop) when it started tipping. He tried to brace himself and push it back but it completely tipped and fell on him. Two or three of his crew members rushed to get it off of him quickly.”  Al Zaid mentioned.

According to other reports, it was around this time his girlfriend rushed over to him from the chair she'd been sitting in, on the side of the stage, clearly panicked.

There were some paramedics on site, however, it was another minute or two before actual medics started to get on stage.

An onslaught of tweets on Twitter has been discussing the event, most of which are fans providing support and wishing him well.

The incident could have been much worse, although it isn't certain how long it will take him to recover from his injuries. Hopefully, the talented star will be back to himself soon.

Engine Breaks Up On Air France Flight

Passengers could see the damaged engine from windows mid-flight  (David Rehmar)


The engine of an Air France aircraft has broken up during flight. The plane is known as A380, superjumbo jetliner. It's reported that there were around 500 people on board the aircraft during the incident. It was traveling from Paris to Los Angeles and had to have an emergency landing in Canada.

The double-decker aircraft and ended up being rerouted over Greenland. It landed in Goose Bay in Eastern Canada. The landing of the plane also did not have any issues.

The real issue lies in the engine that seemed to start falling apart. The cause of this is currently unknown but some people are speculating that it may have been a bird that had collided with it, thus causing serious damage.

Photos and videos that were apparently taken by passengers showed the engine with its cowling stripped away.

A spokesperson for Air France said: “Flight 066 landed without further damage at the Goose Bay military airport in Canada and all of the 520 people on board were evacuated with no injuries,”
While planes require a lot of upkeep incidents such as this one are not very common and it's likely that this aircraft will be fixed soon and will be inspected multiple times to check if there are any issues at all to avoid another situation like this one.

Despite the slight issue with the engine that had some damage to it, everyone seems safe and will have more than a unique story to say about this flight.

Air France may also be exploring options to get the passengers to the United States.
