Similarly, the entire blockchain concept is a solution to a computer science problem from the 1970s that was formalized in 1982 as the Byzantine Generals’ Problem. At heart, it’s a question of how a bunch of systems can collaborate with trust when malicious actors 😈 👹 are trying to disrupt the system. Proof-of-work and proof-of-stake are different solutions on top of blockchain to that problem.

Last month, The Ear Spring geyser in Yellowstone National Park erupted, causing the biggest blow in over 60 years … but what came out of the geyser, apart from steam and hot water, is shocking. On September 15, 2018, the small geyser, which up until then had been dormant for decades, essentially rained garbage. Ear Spring emptied itself of all the trash that had been thrown into it throughout the period of its dormancy (about 90 years?!) by senseless tourists visiting Yellowstone – some of the pieces of litter collected date back as far as to the 1930s, TreeHugger reports.

Video: Cargo Ship Sinks in Taiwan Strait

October 4, 2018 by gCaptain

Photo: The 70-meter cargo ship Ying Hai with a starboard list in the Taiwan Strait.

The 70-meter cargo ship Ying Hai sank in the Taiwan Strait on Wednesday after it developing a heavy list on a voyage from Kaohsiung city to Busan Korea.

The Taiwanese-flagged ship notified Taiwan search and rescue authorities on Tuesday that the ship had developed a list after some containers on deck had shifted in heavy weather.

After attempts to tow the vessel failed, all 9 crew members eventually abandoned ship to SAR boats, leaving the vessel adrift.

Authorities tracking the ship said it sank Wednesday morning south of the Penghu archipelago.

Ships in the area are being warned to keep a lookout for possible floating containers in the water.

Some video from a local news report is below:

It would be impossible for the non-mariner to understand phenomena such as sailing into a Hurricane. For reference, I quote a passage from The American Practical Navigator – “As the center of the storm comes closer, the ever stronger winds shriek through the rigging, and about the superstructure of the vessel. As the center approaches, rain falls in torrents. The wind fury increases. The seas become mountainous. The tops of huge waves are blown off to mingle with rain and fill the air with water. Visibility is near zero in blinding rain and spray. Even the largest and most seaworthy vessels become virtually unmanageable, and may sustain heavy damage. Less sturdy vessels may not survive. Navigation stops as safety of the vessel becomes the only consideration. The awesome fury of this condition can only be experienced. Words are inadequate to describe it.”

SNIPPET:

Marlan and his fellow crewmen knew they were in trouble when they felt the ship being pulled back out to sea from the dock, as the sea receded, heralding the arrival of a tsunami.

They had no sooner scrambled into life jackets when a five-meter wave bore down on them.

“I could hear the waves coming,” Marlan said, describing how he was gripped by fear.

Agelbert NOTE: This is an interesting thought exercise. 🧐 If humanity is to survive Catastrophic Climate Change, this type of big picture thinking involving massive global 🌍 scale action is sine qua non, even if this particular plan is not the best approach. What do you think? 🤔
