Sandy Hook plaintiffs ask jury to ‘send a message’ with its decision as Connecticut trial against Alex Jones begins
By Oliver Darcy

A lawyer representing Sandy Hook families that have sued right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones asked a jury on Tuesday to “send a message” to the public with its decision in a Connecticut trial that will determine how much money the plaintiffs receive.

The trial is taking place a month after a Texas jury determined that Jones and his company, Free Speech Systems, the parent of the conspiracy media organization Infowars, should award two parents nearly $50 million in a similar trial.
In the Connecticut case, where Jones is being sued by different Sandy Hook families, Judge Barbara Bellis issued a default judgment against the Infowars founder in November 2021 after he failed to comply with court orders.
Plaintiffs in three Connecticut lawsuits against Jones, including family members of eight school students and employees and one FBI agent who responded to the scene, have all been condensed into the trial that commenced Tuesday morning. Because the judge already decided that Jones is liable, the jury is determining the amount of damages to award to the plaintiffs.

The world’s second biggest cryptocurrency just got a lot greener
By Diksha Madhok

Ethereum, the world’s second most valuable cryptocurrency, has completed a massive software upgrade that its backers claim will slash its carbon footprint.

The long-awaited revamp, which is known as “The Merge,” will reduce ethereum’s energy consumption by nearly 99.95%, according to the Ethereum Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the cryptocurrency and its related technologies.
“The Merge refers to the original Ethereum Mainnet merging with a separate … blockchain called the Beacon Chain,” it added.

Until now, both ethereum and bitcoin were running on a mechanism called “proof-of-work,” under which high-powered computers were required to solve complex puzzles. The merger moves ethereum to a mechanism called “proof-of-stake,” which is much more energy efficient, as it does away with the need to have computers compete against each other. Instead, users deposit their ether to participate in the race for more currency.

    Facebook has Instagram. It's really just Zuck's ego that is the problem. It's not a business issue.

    Have been upset with the insane Alex for years. Throw the book at him. Needs to be put in a straight jacket, along with Marjorie Greene. Am on Facebook. But it's mainly to push my YouTube channel and for sales. No plans on getting TikTok or Instantgram.

    America can start an international job trade through an international job swap transfer, trade system. International companies and conglomerates can become gain major memberships with cruises, and airlines for this. Keep a travel. Wherever united airlines land? We have franchises and American businesses there as well. We don't just have port access. American companies should get in the habit of selling franchise licenses to foreign business owners. To use their name and functionality of their business. McDonald's White Castle, Nike, Macy's and etc.

    The Censurers will become the Censored.
    The Judgemental will become the Judged.
    The Lawful will become the Lawless.
    The Elected will become the Treasonous.
    And the Deep State will become the Shallow Nothing.

    We are all witnessing the final sizzles of the Globalist Bacon.

    Love me some Alex Jones! ❤ The man is a true crusader for truth! Sad they are still dragging this stuff up from a decade ago. He has admitted he was wrong repeatedly for years and has been apologizing for almost a decade now. At least CNN was smart enough to demote Don Lemon. Hooe they keep cleaning house 🎉

    We are children of King of kings.
    But sufferings are to help us done with sin.(1 Peter 4:-1,2 )( our sufferings are temporary we will have joy in the dawn Psalm 4).
    We must live for God or we must give our life for a Christian,,( as well our hard work )
    No race or caste or Nation is equal or commanding than the family of JESUS.
    The world of Gentile is a big lie .
    When they go wrong we have God who sends agony and tribulations( Romans 2)
    Our efforts in christ will never go waste ( 1 CORINTHIANS 25),,
    On resurrection we will have new perfect body .
    There will be no mistakes there.
    We have fruits of By Spirit which is inner joy and inner peace.
    Galatians 5:-22
    But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

    .,India or oppressed people of the world will remember you always.
    In 1891, the Chingleput collector J. H. A. Tremenheere submitted his study on socio-economic condition of Dalits in Tamil Nadu to the British administration.[2]( King George , England,) Based on his recommendation Depressed Classes Land Act was passed on September 30 under Government Order No 1010/10-A (revenue) 1892. And 12 lakh acres were assigned to Dalits across Tamil Nadu.{ On the request of missionaries,)
    In TAMIL NADU,
    Oppressed people were asked to tie a pot around their neck when they entered the village or city or passed a high caste home .
    Only a Brahmin can have education.
    But now our chief minister Mr. STALIN gave opportunities to all caste to become priests .
    He himself is from a most backwards ,his relationships are doing barber shops ,,
    A high caste ( they call themselves so ) here still uses a BARBERS caste to undershave their bride grooms as a part of their marriage ritual using this caste 😁😁😁,,
    Slavery ,,
    Slavery to even a caste of Hon Chief MINISTER of Tamil Nadu.🙏🙏🙏( But originally they are Pipers but we know their relationship are running Barber shops,,my dad sent us me and my brother to learn cutting and shaving so that we will have a job in future if education doesn't pay us a job ,,)( my dad said only after or during this period God REVEALED himself to my dad ,,)
    Pray for our safety .
    I filed a case in our high court in 2007 .
    Noon meal scheme( this was possible here in Tamil Nadu Because a team of JUSTICE PARTY members attended several meetings in UK and as well visited UK schools and astoria to see noon meal scheme in schools there in UK,,and later British introduced it here in india 🙏🙏🙏 or lot of lakes or dams or slavery of women devadasi ,, democracy,police ,jobs , railways,dams lakes schools,police jobs , hospitals,,across the world are by BRITISH rule
    God bless uk
    God bless UK people.
    God bless california governor for introducing noon meal scheme in their schools.
    🙏🙏🙏
    It would NEVER been allowed in British rule
    20 of our innocent tamils were shot dead by a neighborhood state ,no enquiry by central government,,No political parties called for a mass protest or rally to condemn it ,,I was the one and only person to write it in Gates notes first and after in USA appealing to UNO and TRUMP,,I took lot of risks ,,
    Neighborhood state arrested two men in my name to give me fear,,
    But I am not protected by people over here for whose right I fight.
    But they want to Praise somebody else for it .
    But if it is my work then God will reward me .
    A son of a police head constable in Chennai was chased by a youth rally anticorruption rally ,,because he refused to join this group,,the boy ran and fell down in the koovam river of Chennai and died .
    We wrote the world to condemn this cruel act and requested the world to support the power of Tamil Nadu POLICE 🙏👍🙏
    I have no caste feeling.
    BECAUSE ABIRRAHAM LIVED WITH HIS CASTE OR RACE OR NATIONAL,,
    BUT GOD WANTED TO BLESS HIM SO HE TOOK HIM OUT OF HIS CASTE OR RACE OR NATIONALITY PEOPLE…
    WE SHOULDN'T BELIEVE OR LOVE AS CASTES ,,

  • Hector Rogers  on September 20, 2022

    Your explanation is realistic and straight to the point. On the other hand there are many ways of manipulating the market, I was able to grasp the knowledge of trading crypto assets early enough, but i was still limited due to my lack of technical understanding of how to analyse the digital market , all that changed when i encountered (Carolyn Halles) strategy. more emphasis should be put into day trading as it Is less affected by the unpredictable nature of the market.

    The way you just went right into the segment was great. Straight news. Zero fluff. This was one of your best streams. More emphasis should be put into trading since it is way profitable than hodling. Trading went smooth for me as I was able to raise over 10.2 BTC when I started at 4.5 BTC in just few weeks implementing Michael Christensen's daily trading signals and tips. .
