  1. Whether you enjoy consuming your glorious Mary Jane in an edible, bong or big old traditional bifta one thing is for sure: today is your day to share your preference with the rest of world. As April 20th makes its sluggish appearance on the global calendars millions of appreciators of Mother Nature’s glorious herb – marijuana – are preparing to celebrate the internationally celebrated weed day with eyes redder than Santa’s coat and a bag of munchies bigger than his sack of gifts. While most countries are still getting with the program, numerous countries around the globe have acknowledged and accepted the fact that cannabis is not something to be demonised and that smoking a doobie will not turn people into brain dead zombies covered in ash. Since its legalisation in places such as the USA (well, a fair few states) the cannabis industry is one which is rapidly growing into an extremely lucrative one. Last year Grand View Research posted an article estimating that the total value of the industry could reach $146.4 billion by the year 2025 (source) which is great news for those hoping for legalisation in their own country. If there is one thing we know that governments listen to, its money and the current market cap of the industry is just the tip of the iceberg. Advancement in Generally Accepted Uses Many bud smokers have long known the medicinal benefits of the naturally occurring compounds grown on the marijuana plant but it seems that the mainstream media and corporate entities are only just catching up. In the past decade there have been a swathe of stories involving worried parents which have children suffering from diseases, such as epilepsy, and have had to illegally medicate them with homemade THC/CBD tinctures in order to calm the symptoms experienced by their child. But, for whatever reason, mainstream media outlets have preferred to focus on a smear campaign against weed and omit the many benefits of its main active compounds. It is only now, in 2019 that we are beginning to see the war on weed has been won, by weed. Governments, media outlets and close minded people alike are now finding themselves accepting the facts that cannabis has a place in the medicinal world, that it can be used for anything from paper to cooking oil and that using it recreationally, generally, wont lead to much worse than an empty fridge. Although I am not advising anybody to self diagnose and go make a load of THC/CBD oils to feed their kids, there is a medically accepted place for the beloved compound of stoners worldwide within the medical world. You Don’t Even Need to Smoke it As with all substances, the start of the legalisation revolution has lead to multiple explorations into the methods by which a person can consume cannabis. People have always known that you can eat or drink weed (Bhang Lassi – basically a weed milkshake – has been a traditional Holi Festival drink in India for years) however, since its legalisation in many USA states and Canada, the research going into the field of marijuana has exploded. Nowadays you can make a quick google search for cannabis and find everything from skin rubs to vape juices which are made from the plant. Further to that, there are now huge markets for the non-psychoactive variants of it, just search for CBD products and you will see what I mean. My Personal Message Having been introduced to Mary Jane about 19 years ago I think it is fair to say I have quite a bit of experience with it. I have personally been through stages of abusing it like it was going out of fashion (smoking around 7g of skunk a day) and also through phases of complete abstinence. I have rolled tulips, windmills, plaits and straight up monster joints. I have had cakes, cookies, oils, Bhang Lassi, hash, bud, trim and vape juice. I have smoked super strength skunk with > 20% THC, low grade bush weed from a holy-man in the Himalayas, blow your head off ice hash and relaxing CBD bud with < 0.2% THC. In my current mind state I enjoy having a joint when the time is right, that might mean when my partner and I are up a mountain and taking in the awe inspiring views offered by Mother Nature. It may also mean in the bath with a cuppa after a long shift at work which has seen me set up five stages and full PA to match. Whatever the case, the point is that marijuana is something which should be appreciated by all, but abused by none. You don’t have to smoke it, eat it or even look at it but don’t condemn those who do. And if you are a toker celebrating today have a big toke for me, and remember to know your limits! Happy 420! Love, peace and happiness. Original Article: https://somethingdecent.co.uk/blog/random-tangents/happy-420-weed-day/

    Automated Market Maker

    Posted on the website: https://enumivo.org/guides/automated-market-maker-explained/
  3. Whether it is a vegan telling you to stop consuming dairy or a climate change activist telling you to stop owning a car, we’ve all been on the blunt end of an extreme ideologist’s verbal assault. And, while their intentions may be in the right place, the abrupt and demonising nature of said lectures usually mean the opposite to desired affect is achieved: instead of raising awareness and opening constructive debate of a topic it starts a fractious argument. This is not to say that any single person’s opinion is invalid, simply that the competitive nature of modern society, when paired with the binary thinking process utilised by many, leads to a situation which is seen as a competition by all involved in the debate. And, instead of focusing on a solution for the greater good, people become too entrenched in ‘their’ opinion, which leads to treating it like a football team. It is the final part of the previous sentence which I personally feel is the sticking point of many arguments — treating opinions as if they are football teams. The Football Team Effect In general, human beings are extremely impressionable animals. We’ve all been in a situation where we are seeking for approval from a large group of people who share one particular ideology and, as a result, we go against some of our other personal beliefs. Many people call this the hive mentality — a phenomenon where a single common ground unite’s a large group of people which then banish/demonise those who do not share said common ground — I prefer the term the football team effect. My reasoning is simply due to witnessing the countless arguments which occur in the UK through religious affiliation with a football team. These arguments are void of any logic and will never be resolved without some form of aggression or police intervention. The sad reality is that this ‘my team is better than yours’ mentality has boiled over from the cooking pot of the Barclay’s Premiership and spilled into the world’s political broth, of which we have all taken a sip. It is this opinionated shortsightedness which has resulted in a situation where, to return to the football analogy, we have people, in the UK, who are earning minimum wage, and barely able to afford their rent, arguing the case for a footballer, who currently earns £100,000 (per week!), to get a pay rise. Not only is this even a topic of debate, it has the potential to become a heated one even though it does not directly affect any single person involved’s life. Why? Because the binary nature of human thinking, combined with the football team mentality, has made this trivial debate into a matter of pride: “I must win this debate and convince Fred that my team’s player is better than his”. The Binary Thought Process In a world which is becoming exponentially more complex, it seems absurd to mention that humans tend to rationalise in as simplistic method as possible. Global warming? Stop driving a car. Animal cruelty? Stop consuming animals. You see where I am going with this. In an ideal world this extreme black-and-white, binary, thinking is correct: if everyone stopped driving it would aid global warming but what about the amount of increasing air traffic and, more absurdly, proposed commercial space flight? If we all stopped consuming animal products it wouldhelp aid animal cruelty prevention but what about the work animals forced to carry excessive loads of cement in third world countries, and what about the animals which have had their habitat wiped out by human constructions? As you can see, there is no one-fix-all solution to most of life’s multifaceted issues and, as with most things, the solution is a happy-medium which resides somewhere in one of life’s many grey areas. Seven n a Half Billion Shades of Grey As humans the very last person we ever look at, when seeking to place fault, is ourselves. Even if we never publicly acknowledge the blame which is due at our door, we do tend to make the realisation in our head’s. And it is this sub-conscious self-preservation technique which I believe is partly to blame for the binary thinking which leads to the ‘football team effect’. When we are in a group of people who share one particular belief it is easy to find a solution to an issue which blame’s someone who does not share our collective belief. What is much harder is the act of internally assessing our group’s actions and how we are also to blame for a given scenario. This is where I believe the happy-medium and the ‘grey-area-solution’ exists. While I am not a religious man in the slightest I feel the quote ‘he who is without sin cast the first stone’ emphasises the point that I am trying to make regarding the football team effect. A group of people to unite in demonising one person, who has gone against their beliefs, and it is not until they are ordered to assess their own actions that they are reminded of their imperfections. There are roughly seven and a half billion people currently populating this planet. Every single one of us with our own unique perspective on everything from the colour of the sky to global political systems. These individual perspectives make the massive grey area which is life and the sooner we all begin seeking to change our own personal imperfections, instead of pointing out those we notice in others, the better. Let’s leave the binary thinking to the machines and start exploring the infinite decimal points between. Happiness.

  4. Some of you may have been wondering where I (and the content on Something Decent) has been over the past two months. Tumble weeds have been rolling and dust has been gathering on the homepage. To put it bluntly, I personally like to travel and, once again, have been off gallivanting around the all encompassing sub-continent of India with a backpack and pocket full of hope. As is often then case I have been travelling with my partner and we have seen/done a huge amount while away from our first world problems in the UK. As this was our second visit to my father’s native homeland we both had a better idea of what we wanted to do while there and of what to expect. One of the main things we both noticed on our last visit was the heart wrenching way in which the mass poverty had affected animal welfare throughout the entire country. In ‘developed’ countries we tend to have the rose tinted goggles on when we think of animals in places such as India. This is partly due to the Hindu religion placing a lot of focus on karmic justice and the holy importance of animals such as cows. Sadly all is not as you would imagine. The reality is the extreme poverty and lack of available education has lead to a plethora of malnourished animals, which are severely mistreated, being dumped onto the streets with nothing to eat and nowhere to go. Although some locals do their best to help feed the stray animals, many of them end up ingesting high volumes of plastic and other inedible materials. This sadly results in a slow and painful death. Many northern Indian states outlaw the euthanising of bovine animals. This means that cows have quite a raw deal. How do they end up on the street? The sad reality is, if an animal is unable to earn money they are seen as a burden. In a country with no real safeguards for its citizens’ health/quality of life, it’s near impossible for people to feed themselves, let-alone providing care for a stray animal. Add to that the fact that the dairy industry in India simply toss their no longer needed cows (or newborn bulls) to the curb like yesterdays news and you start to get an idea of just how big this issue is. Enter Animal Aid Unlimited Thankfully there are many non-profit organisations within the country which are attempting to assist animals that have been mistreated, while taking preventative measures in order to tackle ongoing issues such as the growing number of street dogs which wander India’s many urban streets. While my partner and I were most recently on our travels we had the opportunity to volunteer at Animal Aid Unlimited in Udaipur, Rajasthan – a non profit organisation which offers emergency medical treatment, care, rescue and sanctum to the local area’s animals which are most in need. The charity itself was started back in 2002 by Erika, Jim and Claire Abrams of Seattle, USA. Since its inception the charity has found itself to become one of the more prominent and respected organisations in the country. Their YouTube channel has regularly been gaining millions of views for their direct approach to animal welfare and rescue, which doesn’t gloss over how severe some of the cases they receive actually are. While staying in Udaipur (specifically for the purpose of volunteering at Animal Aid) my partner an I were able to see, first hand, just how hands on the team are and how much they care about the safety of all animals no matter how big or small. While it was evident on a daily basis through the sheer number of animals which were tended to, the standout scenario which made both of us realise just how much the staff at the shelter care was when my partner and I called them to assist with a poor dog that was in dire need of medical attention and love on the street which we stayed. It was about 6.30pm and we were almost home after our shift at the shelter when we saw a terrified dog absolutely obliterated by mange curled up in a ball on the side of the road. Feeling his desperation and pain we both stopped walking in an attempt to give him some biscuits as, to add to the mange and obvious mistreatment, he was severely underweight. The poor boy cowered away at the thought of us going near to him as if we were some wicked tormentors back to add to his fears. After getting a full sight of his injuries and illnesses we decided we needed to call the assigned volunteer coordinator who assisted us with calling the emergency ambulance to come and assist him. After we had got over the slight language barrier one of the senior members of staff arrived on his moped and waited with our poor little buddy until the ambulance came to collect him. The following day we were able to see rescued street dog in the light of the day and in a place where he had food, water and, perhaps most importantly, love. His injuries were so much worse than the dimming light of the evening would allow us to see previously – his skin was so ridden in mange that it had cracked to the point of bleeding, his legs were injured, he was seriously malnourished and had lost about 80% of all his body hair – and we were eternally grateful to the staff at Animal Aid for saving our little buddy. For the remainder of our time in Animal Aid Unlimited we were constantly checking up on our buddy although he was still very shaken up and scared of human contact. However, we were assured that he would get better and we had a new found respect for the charity as, without them, this dog would most certainly still be on the street or, worse, dead. Please Donate As mentioned Animal Aid Unlimited are a non profit organisation and they are in need of as many donations as possible no matter how big or small. If you have a bit of money you can spare and would like to help them to continue their mission please do not hesitate to donate. I have included their website below which will also provide you with much more in depth information regarding their operations and the journey of the animals they help. As this is just one article I have focused on what I found to be most touching but there are so many aspects about this place which I could mention I would literally be here forever. Happiness.

    Nominating Tezzmax To Join RoE

    Hi @PeiLin I did not have access to internet and made everyone aware I would be away. @Sosolean provided the screen grab of the conversation we had so how did I not vote?
  6. I am going to abstain from voting in this one bro. This is not a reflection of my opinion on the design at all I think it is a very good design, very clear and clean. I just think we should try and make a full branding pack which the logo is modelled around to give the RoE more of an official feel and appearance.
  7. As the RoE has now got access to the voting power of the 50m fund I would like to propose a motion for the eurnoproject BP to receive said voting weight. As you know we have done a lot for this community, which ranges from making the current enumivo.org homepage to writing the original whitepaper and making the recent wordpress cross chain explorer plugin. Our BP is eurnoproject and was solidly in the top 21 since the chain went main net. Our website is https://eurno.org and we are actively developing for and on the Enumivo blockchain. We are one of few BPs which have completed everything all required by other EOS based chains. Vote YES if you think eurnoproject is worthy of receiving the 50m vote weight, vote NO if you think we aren't.

    You should rephrase your question then. It is not clear.
