Fukushima : pas de réaction de fission dans le réacteurJeudi, l’opérateur de la centrale de Fukushima Tepco a annoncé que les éléments radioactifs détectés ne provenaient pas d’une réaction de fission nucléaire prolongée comme il l’avait supposé au départ.Les craintes ont disparu et la situation est toujours sous contrôle à la centrale de Fukushima accidentée le 11 mars dernier suite au séisme dévastateur. En effet, hier, l’opérateur de l’installation Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) a annoncé qu’il était possible qu’une réaction de fission nucléaire se soit produite dans le réacteur 2. Mais ceci n’était qu’une fausse alerte. Aujourd’hui, Tepco a expliqué que le gaz xénon 133 et 135 détecté dans le réacteur ne provenait pas d’une telle réaction.

Un accident de criticité est une réaction nucléaire en chaîne involontaire et incontrôlée, mais la probabilité d’un tel évènement restait ici faible, d’après Tepco qui avait tout de même rapidement débuté des mesures d’arrosage du réacteur concerné. Selon ses dires, les radiations enregistrés étaient probablement le résultat d’une réaction ponctuelle. De minuscules éléments radioactifs produits lors de la réaction nucléaire en début de crise pourraient être entrés en collision, émettant des neutrons qui à leur tour ont divisé des noyaux d’uranium, déclenchant de petites fissions, rapporte Le Figaro.fr.

House building and timber frame manufacturing organisation Stewart Milne Group has reported a 13.3% mean gender pay gap for fixed hourly pay as at 5 April 2018; this is a 4.8% decrease from the 18.1% mean gender pay gap the organisation reported for 2017.The organisation reported its gender pay gap data in line with the government’s reporting regulations and in time for the private sector submission deadline of 4 April 2019.The regulations require organisations with 250 or more employees to publish the differences in mean and median hourly rates of pay for male and female full-time employees, the gap in mean and median bonus pay for men and women, the proportions of male and female employees awarded bonus pay, and the proportions of male and female full-time employees in the lower, lower middle, upper middle and upper quartile pay bands.Stewart Milne Group’s 2018 median gender pay gap for fixed hourly pay is 7.2%.The organisation’s mean gender pay gap for bonuses paid in the 12 months up to 5 April 2018 is 26.7%, which is a reduction from the recorded 2017 figure. Stewart Milne Group attributes this decrease to improved organisational performance, which in turn led to more employees being eligible to receive a bonus. The median gender pay gap for bonus payments is 35.1%. Over the current reporting period, 85.5% of female staff received a bonus compared to 40.6% of male staff.Around a fifth (20%) of employees in the highest pay quartile at Stewart Milne Group are female, compared to 17% in the second, 26% in the third and 19% in the lowest pay quartile. In total, around 20% of the workforce is female.Stewart Milne Group attributes its gender pay gap to an under-representation of women, in particular due to fewer women joining the construction sector. In the last year, therefore, Stewart Milne Group has developed a fast track modern apprenticeship programme; this aims to tackle the perception that entry-level roles in the industry are gained solely through a trades background.The new apprenticeship programme will work alongside the organisation’s existing leadership development programmes, as well as its current graduate apprenticeship. Stewart Milne Group will also continue to deliver diversity and equality training to staff, and work with schools and colleges to promote the construction industry as a career choice. The business further offers all employees the right to request flexible working.For 2019, Stewart Milne Group plans to review job profiles and adverts to ensure inclusive language is used, and will work with job board partners to hit diversity targets.Karen Catto, HR director at Stewart Milne Group, said: “The gender pay gap can often be misconstrued as paying women less than men. This is certainly not the case at Stewart Milne Group, where we offer equal pay for equal work. At the root of the so-called pay gap in our industry and many others is the under-representation of women.“Our gender pay gap has closed because of the strides we have made towards encouraging more women into the organisation, through several different routes and initiatives, and then making sure we provide them with clear progression routes into senior positions.“In the past, there has been a perception that site supervisors would be required to work on-site in a manual role before progressing to a managerial position. This can often deter people, particularly females, who have an interest in construction but do not feel that they are suited to a labour-intensive role. The introduction of both the graduate apprenticeship in construction and the Built Environment programme, and a newly launched fast track modern apprenticeship, provides alternative routes into senior roles at Stewart Milne Group.“We are very pleased to have some great examples of women who have risen to senior roles in the group and act as mentors and role models to those joining our industry.“Of course, we recognise we have some way to go. We will continue to promote the benefits of our industry to women and also ensure our own recruitment, learning and development strategies support their development into senior roles.”

de_dust2 from Counter-Strike 1.6Valve has a great reputation as a game developer for a number of reasons. Half-Life is probably the number one product everyone associates with the company, although the Steam digital games service is also very high profile now. But if you enjoy your multiplayer FPS games, then your number one Valve product has to be Counter-Strike.It was originally released as a mod in June 1999, but then got a retail release over a year later in November 2000. Since then it has seen multiple updates with major versions including 1.6, Condition Zero, Source, and the most recently announced Global Offensive.During this decade+ period, tweaks have been made, but the core gameplay has remained pretty much the same. The most noticeable update? The evolution of the environments, or maps as they are more commonly known.de_dust2 from Counter-Strike: Global OffensiveIf you’ve been a regular player since Counter-Strike first appeared, you’ve probably only noticed the map changes when upgrading between versions, and it’s easy to forget how basic your favorite levels used to look. With the Global Offensive launch slated for early next year, the maps are set to get their biggest visual update yet.YouTube user clayman90 has decided to remind us how the classic maps have evolved over time by creating two videos. They show transitions of the maps de_dust and de_dust2 from 1.6 right through to Global Offensive, and you can see them both below.As someone who started playing Counter-Strike when it first got released, it’s surprising to see how much has changed with the look of the game. via Kotaku
On November 22, Peter Molyneux’s game development studio 22cans launched a new Kickstarter campaign. The game they wanted to fund was called Godus, and it’s described as a reinvention of Populous.Getting Godus funded requires £450,000 ($715,000) be raised, and with 3 days left to go before time runs out, 22cans is still well short of reaching that target. At the time of writing 11,727 backers have pledged £363,564 ($588,556), meaning they’ve still got another $126,444 to raise over the next 72 hours.In order to keep interest in the project high, 22cans released a video yesterday that you can watch above. It’s a prototype of the game demonstrating how the landscape can be manipulated, how your followers will grow and spread, and the subsequent territorial fights that will ensue when other tribes are met. It looks to be classic Populous-style gameplay.22cans has also promised a second prototype video will appear today, only this time it will include commentary from Peter Molyneux. As soon as it’s available I will include it here.I’m a little bit surprised that Godus hasn’t easily reached its funding target with days to spare. Populous is such a well-known and popular game that any new game that claims to reinvent it, especially with the original creator of Populous at the helm, would be an instant hit.Hopefully these prototype videos and the coverage they receive will help get Godus to its funding target. At the same time, I wonder if 22cans will attempt to fund the project by some other method if the Kickstarter fails due to how much time and effort they have already invested.More at Kickstarter

Whether it is an unscheduled surprise or scheduled downtime for software updates that include bug fixes, enhancements or operating system updates; downtime happens. Back in the early 2000s, when PACS solutions went down, the radiology department could print film and revert to a film-based workflow.2 While a less than ideal scenario, work continued and critical cases went to the top of the worklist. Today, a film-based workflow is no longer an option. Not only is it difficult to find the equipment and materials, but finding the personnel with the expertise to print the film, and the radiologists to efficiently read it, would be a challenge. In a digital age, what’s a PACS administrator to do? Prior to implementing Mach7 Enterprise Imaging Platform and the business continuity solution (BCS) at Broward Health, scheduled downtime took weeks of preparation. Prior images for scheduled exams were pre-fetched days (if not weeks) before they were needed. Plans for manual routing of images were created, which included phone calls and training for every single site. The IT team scheduled additional resources to manage the increased manual intervention required to sustain network traffic. To minimize the amount of manual intervention, choosing a time where imaging volumes were reduced was critical. That meant the IT team would come in around 10 P.M. and if things went well, they would complete the task later the next morning. If things didn’t go well, it could take significantly longer. Stories abound on the Internet of 3-hour downtimes turning into 3-day catastrophes. Kalitenko noted, “Even relatively short upgrades were still done in the middle of the night, which had us all a little bleary-eyed, exhausted and stressed. This is not the condition you want anyone to be in when manually dealing with critical patient care data. The network would be hugely taxed before, during and after the downtime and when the system went back online, there was still a mountain of work to do to clean up and resolve the exceptions.” Broward HealthProviding service for more than 75 years, Broward Health in South Florida is one of the 10 largest healthcare systems in the U.S. and currently operates more than 50 healthcare facilities. The system includes a comprehensive radiology department that averages more than 700 studies per day and a Level 1 Trauma Center, one of only seven in the state of Florida. Considering that nearly half of all standard emergency department visits include imaging services,1 downtime is unacceptable.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 A Partnership That Delivers Boris Kalitenko and the Broward Health image support team have been using the business continuity server for over a year without a single hiccup. Not only has this had a positive impact on patient care, but the IT team is happy to give up their sleepless, stressful upgrades. Kalitenko had this to say about the partnership: “Mach7 Technologies built a partnership with us that delivers great results. Working together, we proved that a core imaging component like our VNA can (and should) be 100 percent available — zero outages. A business continuity server with all functionalities of our production server is a life saver for a high acuity hospital system such as Broward Health.” A Better Solution Kalitenko searched for and found a solution. Working together with Devitt from Mach7, the team designed a solution to support Kalitenko’s dream. To start, the system is load-balanced where all modalities send to a virtual IP that sits above six production servers managing the over 700 radiology procedures that Broward Health completes each day. Broward Health added a seventh server, a copy of the production server acting as a BCS that replicates all production activities from archiving to routing and all specialty workflow. The seventh server (BCS) remains inactive until needed. During a scheduled maintenance, the six servers are stopped and the BCS server is activated. In the event of an unplanned outage, the BCS server is automatically activated (via artificial intelligence) and commences the support of the full production workload. The entire process takes less than 10 seconds with no impact to operations and workflow. Problem solved — end users experience zero downtime. “Zero downtime offers maximum benefit to our patients and our clinical team, and also benefits our IT team as we can now do software upgrades during the day,” Kalitenko elaborated. “Not only are we fully awake and alert during the process, but all the critical players are available, including our IT team, technologists, radiologists — everyone is available to help test and resolve any problems that may arise.

It serves as the brains of our operation, supporting a variety of clinical customers within high acuity settings. Broward Health Medical Center is a Level I Trauma Center where every minute counts. We need zero downtime.” That’s what Boris Kalitenko, Sr., PACS administrator of Broward Health said to Brendan Devitt, professional services engineer at Mach7 Technologies. Devitt agreed and by leveraging Mach7 Enterprise Imaging Platform with its easy-to-use graphical interface, the team created a business continuity solution for Broward Health that has satisfied all stakeholders with essentially zero downtime and no headaches. In fact, during the last system upgrade, end users didn’t even know the enterprise image management system was taken out of production.

The data was presented at the 2016 Annual Clinical Congress of the American College of Surgeons, Oct. 16-20 in Washington, D.C.While previous studies on Medicare patients suggest that surveillance imaging is underutilized, the use of mammography in a broad range of women diagnosed with breast cancer is unknown, as is the role of surveillance magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).For this study, Caprice C. Greenberg, M.D., MPH, FACS, of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, and colleagues assessed the receipt of surveillance breast MRI and mammography in 9,622 women who underwent a surgical procedure to treat Stage II and III breast cancer from 2006 through 2007 with data collected from the National Cancer Database (NCDB). The NCDB is jointly sponsored by the American College of Surgeons and the American Cancer Society. Greenberg is professor of surgery and Morgridge Distinguished Chair in Health Services Research, of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison.The researchers assessed imaging, cancer recurrence, new cancer and death from the time of treatment and for five years after diagnosis. Next, they collected additional data on the reason for imaging (diagnostic evaluation of a new sign or symptom or surveillance imaging in the absence of signs and symptoms). Fifty percent of the study population was under age 60.”Most of what we know about breast imaging comes from small studies or from Medicare data, a population that is 65 years old and older,” said Greenberg, who is also the director of the Wisconsin Surgical Outcomes Research Program (WiSOR). “This study is the first to look at a large, multi-institutional population of patients across all age groups.”According to study results, annual receipt of surveillance breast imaging declined 8 percent from the first year (66 percent) to the fourth year (58 percent). Study findings also indicate that among women who received surveillance imaging, only about 10 percent received breast MRIs.”The most striking finding is that over 30 percent of women don’t even get surveillance breast imaging in the first place,” Greenberg said. “For some reason, we are not plugging them into follow-up surveillance from the outset. We also see that there are some disparities in the use of mammograms after the treatment of breast cancer.”The study shows that factors associated with not receiving breast imaging include younger age, black race, public or no insurance, worse health, more advanced cancers, receipt of excision alone or mastectomy (versus lumpectomy with radiation), and lack of systemic therapy.”The critical story here is that if women start off their follow-up care receiving guideline-recommended imaging, they’re likely to continue to receive that imaging over time. Women who don’t receive imaging in that first follow-up year are not likely to receive recommended surveillance breast imaging longer-term,” said study co-author Jessica R. Schumacher, Ph.D., an associate scientist at WiSOR. “The bulk of the disparity seems to occur in that first year of follow up, so it’s really important to think about what we might be able to do in that timeframe to make sure women get guideline-recommended breast imaging.”In looking at the use of both MRI and mammography, the researchers found that receipt of mammography was not influenced by where a woman received her care, but MRI was.”This finding shows that the problem is probably at the patient population level, as opposed to what we often see, which is that there is great variation in utilization of care across hospitals,” Greenberg said. “MRI is a discretionary modality and not currently recommended in guidelines for routine surveillance following breast cancer treatment, but helpful and appropriate in certain patients. Therefore, it’s much more vulnerable to local practice patterns, whereas mammogram is something we all know is effective and, in general, the likelihood of getting it doesn’t matter where you receive your care.”Understanding why cancer survivors aren’t receiving surveillance breast imaging and the consequences of this underutilization should be a high priority, the researchers note.”We need to recognize the fact that, right now we are putting out more and more guidelines to help standardize care and to ensure patients get high-quality care, but the guidelines that are already out there have been available for a long time. So I think it’s important for healthcare practitioners to realize that it’s not enough to just put information out there. Instead, we have to be more thoughtful about how we implement what we recommend into the actual care process,” Greenberg said. Other study participants include Taiwo Adesoye, M.D., MPH; Heather B. Neuman, M.D., FACS; Stephen B. Edge, M.D., FACS; Daniel P. McKellar, M.D., FACS; David P. Winchester, M.D., FACS; and Amanda B.

On Tuesday, the 16th of October, GitHub hosted Open Source and Copyright: from Industry 4.0 to SMEs in Brussels. Partnering with OpenForum Europe and Red Hat, the event was designed to raise awareness of the EU Copyright Directive among developers and policymakers. GitHub has made its position on the controversial legislation clear, saying that while “current copyright laws are outdated in many respects and need modernization, we are concerned that some aspects of the EU’s proposed copyright reform package would inadvertently affect software.” The event included further discussion on topics such as: Policy: For GitHub, Abby Vollmer shared how developers have been especially effective in getting policymakers to respond to problems with the copyright proposal and asked them to continue reaching out to policymakers about a technical fix to protect open source. Developers: Evis Barbullushi from Red Hat explained why open source is so fundamental to software and critical to the EU, using examples of what open source powers every day. He also highlighted the world-class and commercially mainstream nature of open source. SMEs: Sebastiano Toffaletti (from the European Digital SME Alliance) described concerns about the copyright proposal from the perspective of SMEs, including how efforts to regulate large platforms can end up harming SMEs even if they’re not the target. Research and academia: Roberto Di Cosmo (Software Heritage) wrapped up the talks by noting that he “should not be here, because, in a world in which software was better understood and valued, policymakers would never introduce a proposal that inadvertently puts software at great risk, and motivated developers to fix this underlying problem.” In its previous EU copyright proposal update, GitHub explained that the EU Council, Parliament, and Commission were ready to begin final-stage negotiations of the copyright proposal. These three institutions are now working on the exceptions to copyright for text and data mining (Article 3), among other technical elements of the proposal. Article 13 would likely drive many platforms to use upload filters on user-generated content. Article 2 defines which services are in the scope of Article 13, Articles 2 and 13 will be discussed together. This means developers can still contact policymakers with thoughts on what outcomes are best for software development. Read Next The LLVM project is ditching SVN for GitHub.

January 22, 2018 560 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Low mortgage rates and accelerated economic growth has meant that the housing market has started the year with a bang. But will it maintain this momentum? According to Freddie Mac’s January Outlook, a monthly report that looks at the housing market and economic growth, although the housing markets have been improving every year for nearly a decade, it could see a slight moderation in activity through the next two years.“However, there are factors worth keeping an eye on in 2018, namely, is another recession on the horizon, how will housing markets respond to declining housing affordability and how will young adults move the housing market―more are living at home with their parents today than in 2000,” said Len Kiefer, Deputy Chief Economist at Freddie Mac.The report indicated that home sales, which stood at 6.35 million last month, housing construction at 1.3 million starts, and house prices that saw a 5.7 percent increase are all expected to be modestly higher in 2018 relative to 2017.However, the report indicated that the economy, even though it would remain positive, would not be able to keep pace with home prices, resulting in declining affordability, that could in turn lead to slow housing market activity.The report also indicated that with modest income growth, the high cost of living and high student debt meant that young adults were struggling to move out of their parents’ homes and forming their own households. Although a recession does not appear imminent, we will keep an eye on potential recession indicators, including the flattening (and potential inversion) of the U.S. Treasury yield curve and the current rate of unemployment (4.1 percent in December 2017). History has shown that an inverted yield curve and an unemployment rate below the natural rate usually leads to a recession in two-to-three years, the report said. Share

Supreme Court Reuters "We are only deciding and interpreting the validity of Uttar Pradesh rule Suppose if the Uttar Pradesh rule goes what effect will it have on the central rules or state rules that is for you (Centre and states) to see" the bench told the counsel appearing for Centre and other states The bench said it was due to this reason that the court had given an option to other states and the Centre to express their views in the matter The apex court had earlier observed that if the provision which has been challenged by NGO Lok Prahari was held invalid then similar legislation in other states might also come under challenge Earlier senior advocate Gopal Subramaniam who is assisting the court as amicus curiae in the matter in his suggestions given to the top court had said that

intimidating voters and unleashing violence" According to the alleged rumours if someone votes for the BJP the sound from the EVM would be louder and also there would be cameras in every polling booth through which the Left party workers would be able to keep a watch on the polling process it said The BJP claimed in the memorandum that these rumours have gained currency in the state The party also alleged that the Chief Election Officer did not carry out any campaign on educating the voters about the VVPAT machines and several other issues to instill confidence among voters In an another memorandum the BJP claimed that a top police official in Meghalaya along with other senior officers is campaigning for the ruling Congress It also alleged that militancy has raised its head again in the Garo hills from where the incumbent chief minister is contesting The party said that in both the states general and police observers must be visible and more effective in handling of complaints

judiciary should be respected" Replying to questions at the day-long India TV Conclave on ‘Four years of Modi government’ Prasad said that there was unanimity among political parties on the National Judicial Accountability Commission (NJAC) Bill but it was struck down by the top court "The Supreme Court Collegium in its verdicts in 1993 1998 and 2015 had admitted that the Centre had the right to review the decisions taken by the Collegium and the present government was only exercising that right" he said Without naming Justice CS Karnan of Calcutta High Court who was jailed for six months by the Supreme Court for contempt he said: "When we went through the file of that judge it was written that he was an appointee of the Collegium.It was written on the file that he had a good knowledge of various laws Naturally that judge had no knowledge about contempt So somewhere or other there is need for improvement in judiciary" he said File image of law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad PTI He also pointed out that apart from the stay on judges’ appointment in 2014 and 2015 due to NJAC issue 126 judges were appointed in 2016 and 117 judges in 2017 and appointment of more is in the pipeline As he said "Transparency in judiciary is our commitment" Prasad asked if it was his view that there was no transparency in judiciary now replied: "I didn’t say this There is need for improvement and that is the directive from the judiciary itself" He again reiterated that the government’s sending back the file relating to the appointment of Uttarakhand Chief Justice KM Joseph "has nothing to do with the verdict given by Justice Joseph striking down President’s rule in the state" On the unprecedented press conference by four sitting Supreme Court judges he said: "I would not say anything on this I have full faith in the farsightedness of the apex court judges in ironing out their differences" He however hit out at Congress President Rahul Gandhi for raising the judges issue at his rallies in Chhattisgarh "Despite being defeated at the hands of the people Rahul Gandhi cannot run this country through the corridors of the court by using a sponsored case The nation will be run by only those who have got the blessings of the people through the vote Rahul Gandhi raised judge BH Loya’s death case in his rallies but there is no logic behind this "It has been a tradition not to drag the

official website The Supreme Court of India appears to be going from dealing with one controversy to another these days: From the press conference held by four senior Supreme Court judges in January the Judge BH Loya imbrolio to the impeachment motion against the CJI and the withdrawal of the petition challenging the Rajya Sabha Chairman’s order dismissing the motion It seems that India’s most respected institution is faltering and under a cloud of doubt by virtue of which a larger cloud is cast on India’s success and survial as a democractic republic And today the Supreme Court faces yet another situation: The collegium will be meeting to discuss the issue of reconsidering the name of Chief Justice of the Uttarakhand High Court KM Joseph for elevation to the apex court Representational image AP Breaking with precedent the government returned the recommendation to elevate Justice Joseph after delaying the decision for a significant amount of time It is not as though the Supreme Court has not courted controversy in the past but this time is different as the controversy is one that surrounds the Executive’s overreach insofar as the matters of the court are concerned Indian judges as with other judges in the Commonwealth are not expected to wear their political preferences on their sleeves This is unlike their American colleagues who wear their politics on their sleeve India’s judiciary is required to maintain a stoic sense of impartiality while determining disputes and in particular dealing with the executive This is the prime reason this return of the recommendation of Joseph becomes problematic The return signifies that the Executive is now trying to play politics with the court and the collegium has not convened to take a decision on the matter with Justice J Chelameswar asking that it be convened But the question that lingers on the minds of everyone else is why the collegium has not convened yet to assert its independence The longer the collegium waits the more anxious the country gets about the independence of the Supreme Court It is in the interest of the court to preserve this One way or another there is no need to delay this decision any longer The collegium needs to reject the Centre’s view on this matter if only because failure to do so would look like the apex court favors the Executive branch and this would only further would cast light on the competence of a sitting high court chief justice But the broader point that we as a people need to take pause and consider is this: How did we arrive at the point where this is even an issue Relations between the Executive and the Judiciary have been tense in the past but were always in a position where they could have been ironed out Right now however there appears to be stark division among the ranks of the court itself as to how to determine the present controversy The court despite the best efforts of the framers of India’s Constitution has unfortunately taken on a stark political colour Such a scenario can never be good for a democracy such as our This may perhapswork in the US where the Executive and Legislature are truly independent of each other But in India the Executive and the Legislature are united when it comes to government given the government needs to always be in control of matters This changes things The Supreme Court in India is not the final arbiter of disputes between the branches of the government It is the final defender of India’s Constitution If the defender of an apolitical constitution has political aspersions cast on it then it is the sounding of the death knell for any democracy India’s democracy is sick it needs its doctors to heal it The Supreme Court collegium urgently needs to join ranks and reassert the Supreme Court’s power as the guardian of the Constitution No few than 200 foreigners were arrested by the Nigeria Immigration Service Kogi State Command in Lokoja on Wednesday The foreigners believed

price is such an important aspect of Litecoin growth" the Litecoin founder wrote in the post on Reddit"And whenever I tweet about Litecoin price or even just good or bads news I get accused of doing it for personal benefit Some people even think I short LTC "So in a sense it is conflict of interest for me to hold LTC and tweet about it because I have so much influence Credit: BTC Keychain (Creative Commons)"I have always refrained from buying/selling LTC before or after my major tweets but this is something only I know And there will always be a doubt on whether any of my actions were to further my own personal wealth above the success of Litecoin and crypto-currency in general" He added: "For this reason in the past days I have sold and donated all my LTC Litecoin has been very good for me financially so I am well off enough that I no longer need to tie my financial success to Litecoins success "For the first time in 6+ years I no longer own a single LTC thats not stored in a physical Litecoin (I do have a few of those as collectibles) This is definitely a weird feeling but also somehow refreshing" Lee also took the opportunity to quash any potential rumours about him quitting his work with the cryptocurrency saying this was the best way for [him] to continue to oversee Litecoins growth "Dont worry Im not quitting Litecoin" he said "I will still spend all my time working on Litecoin When Litecoin succeeds I will still be rewarded in lots of different ways just not directly via ownership of coins" Featured Image Credit: BTC Keychain/Creative Commons Topics:
