What would happen to me from some of our sick white brothers? Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn't matter with me now, because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land. Did Martin Luther King Jr. know his assassination was imminent? That's one of a myriad of questions that have flourished in the years since King's murder, a death that now sometimes threatens to overshadow the civil rights icon's considerable legacy.
In addition, approximately 13 percent of the stolen funds went to Russian users and were discovered by monitoring Russian web traffic. That brings us to another point: A huge amount of cryptocurrency-based money laundering, not just of ransomware funds but of funds associated with other forms of cybercrime as well, goes through services with substantial operations in Russia. Over the past year or so, Chainalysis says it’s been monitoring several digital currency organizations stationed in Moscow, which houses much of the country’s financial district. Each business being watched by the blockchain firm has received hundreds of millions of dollars in digital currency each quarter since the beginning of 2021, with nearly $1.2 billion being accumulated just in the second quarter of last year alone. In any given quarter, the illicit and risky addresses account for between 29 percent and 48 percent of all funds received by Moscow City cryptocurrency businesses. In addition, more than $700 million was received by these businesses from illicit addresses or wallets that could not be identified. Recent reports issued by the blockchain analysis enterprise suggest that Russia is not alone in targeting crypto funds as a means of making money it didn’t earn.
Some claim the quality of the data collected isn't up to snuff, as citizens aren't trained professionals. Some studies have shown this may be true, but quality is also an issue with data collected by professional scientists. Perhaps a bigger concern is the potential for a conflict of interest, as sometimes people volunteer for these projects to advance their own agenda. Australia's Great Koala Count used members of the public to gather data about the cute, bear-like marsupials; the data was for use in the development of a koala management and conservation policy. Afterward, a survey found that the volunteers held strong views on koala protection at odds with mainstream opinion. Nevertheless, researchers determined the citizen data was still valuable, in part because the project provided a means of dialogue with those most interested in the topic. Websites like SciStarter have made it easy for would-be volunteers to find projects to work on. One very popular project is the Animal Ownership Interaction Study, conducted by the Center for Canine Behavior Studies.|Stocks fell Monday as investors eyed the escalating threat of Russian invasion in Ukraine alongside ongoing concerns over inflation and an aggressive move toward policy tightening by the Federal Reserve. The S&P 500 came off session lows but still ended in the red to extend losses after last week's roller-coaster sessions on Thursday and Friday. Treasury yields rose. The 10-year yield hovered back near 2%. The latest leg lower came after the Wall Street Journal reported the U.S. Kyiv and destroying networking and computer equipment, with concerns over a Russian military attack mounting. Markets have been whipsawed in recent sessions by conflicting signals over the immediacy of a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine. Earlier, Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said he was urging Russian President Vladimir Putin to continue diplomatic talks. This came less than a day after U.S. Russia could be nearing the launch of an invasion of Ukraine as soon as this week. National Security adviser Jake Sullivan told CNN on Sunday that "a major military action could begin by Russia in Ukraine any day now," though the U.S.
The United States and other countries have moved diplomats to Lviv. Russian-backed rebels seized a swath of Eastern Ukraine, and Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 after protests toppled Ukraine's pro-Russian leader. Kyiv says more than 14,000 people have been killed in the conflict in the east. The separatist leaders in Eastern Ukraine have declared a full military mobilization after ordering women and children to evacuate to Russia, citing the threat of an imminent attack by Ukrainian forces, which Kyiv denied. Kyiv and Western leaders say the mobilization, evacuation and increased shelling across the ceasefire line this week are part of a Russian plan to create a pretext for an invasion. Russia's FSB security service said two shells landed on Russian territory near the border, Russia's Tass news agency reported. One hit a building in Rostov region, but no one was hurt, it said. Ukraine's military accused Russia of faking pictures of shells to make out they were Ukrainian, and said mercenaries had arrived in separatist-held Eastern Ukraine to stage provocations in collaboration with Russia's special services. Ukraine's foreign minister demanded an independent international investigation of the alleged incidents, and the military said two soldiers had been killed in shelling by pro-Russian separatists in Eastern Ukraine. The two Russian-backed, self-proclaimed republics in Ukraine's Donetsk and Luhansk regions were hit by more than 1,400 explosions on Friday, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) said. And almost 2,000 ceasefire violations were registered in the area by OSCE monitors on Saturday, a diplomatic source told Reuters. Multiple explosions were heard overnight into Sunday in the center of the separatist-controlled city of Donetsk, a Reuters reporter said. The blasts' origin was not clear. There was no immediate comment from separatist authorities or Kyiv. Tatyana, 30, who was boarding a bus with her four-year-old daughter. Russian news agencies said 10,000 evacuees had arrived so far in Russia. The separatist authorities say they aim to evacuate 700,000 people.|Students admitted to Duke University beat the odds in the school's rigorous and highly competitive admission process. See more investing pictures. Planning for college can be one of the most exciting times in a young person's life. But it can also be stressful, because there's a lot that has to happen before you're actually moving into your new dorm room. The process of selecting a college or university and applying for admission probably starts around the time you take your PSATs and concludes (happily, we hope) by April of your senior year in high school when you're notified of your status (acceptance or rejection) at the college of your choice. Whether you are a student or a parent, the entire college admission process can seem mysterious. In this article, we'll make the admissions process much more understandable. With the help of Duke University director of undergraduate admissions Christoph Guttentag, we will use Duke University in Durham, N.C., as a real-world example of how college admission works in America.
Consumers are hooked on the convenience of food delivery to the tune of hundreds of millions of meals being delivered each year. But is anybody in the food delivery business - from restaurants to drivers to the app companies themselves - actually making money from this? But during the lockdown (and after), the two apps were downloaded by the millions, and delivery service expanded into suburbia. DoorDash and Uber Eats now control 85 percent of the U.S. Wall Street Journal reported. Which is why it's so shocking to learn that neither of these companies has turned a profit. The reason, explains Daniel McCarthy, a marketing professor at Emory University's Goizueta School of Business, is that delivery apps only pocket a small slice of the cost of each food order. And up to this point, apps like DoorDash and Uber Eats have been spending a lot more on advertising their services and improving their technology than they've been earning from food deliveries.
