New Advisors on the GBA Team

first_imgChris Briley and Phil Kaplan are architects in southern Maine. They are smart, talented, funny, and they are go-getters. Chris and Phil began podcasting a couple of years ago on iTunes. One of our contributing editors, Scott Gibson, pointed them out to us, and we asked them to podcast on GBA.Yes, at first we were skeptical about a couple of architects talking about building science, but these guys get it. They also have great guests, pick timely topics, and are excellent cocktail-mixers. And for that, GBA is pleased to announce their addition to the masthead as contributing editors.Allison Bailes is a blogger with a PhD. His experience as a high school teacher and university physics professor serve him well in describing building science issues to regular folks like me. But writing 300+ articles in two years for his Energy Vanguard blog is not his day job — being an Energy Vanguard is. Allison is a building science trainer, speaker, writer, and consultant. His company, Energy Vanguard designs mechanical systems and is a HERS proivider.Allison, located in Decatur, Georgia, joins two others on the climate zone 3 section of the masthead — Michael Chandler (a builder) and the inimitable Carl Seville (a former remodeler, current consultant, and curmudgeon). We are very happy to finally have an HVAC guy on our team.As I told Chris, Phil, and Allison, most of what being on the masthead means is that you promise to answer the phone if you see us on caller ID. But really it means being incessant in your enthusiasm for promoting better design, remodeling, and building.You can listen to all three of them chat on Chris and Phil’s _Green Architects’ Lounge_ podcast , where Allison broke the news to Chris and Phil that had been ‘made.’Please welcome these guys to the GBA Team.last_img read more

De Bruyne, who played 90 minutes, hit out at the state of the surface, which was bumpy and troubled both teams.”I was worried I’d get injured,” the Manchester City attacker said.”This was unacceptable. I don’t understand how we could play on such a pitch.”Last time I played on such a bad pitch was when I was a seven-year-old kid.”The 26-year-old was not the only one complaining about the field conditions after the match. Belgium boss Roberto Martinez, who saw Marouane Fellaini suffer a knee injury during the match, was also less than pleased with the playing surface. “The pitch in Sarajevo was below any acceptable level! It was impossible to play any tactics,” Martinez said. “Our team spirit won the game, not any tactics. Fellaini injury changed our play, we lost focus, but after that showed amazing character and never gave up. We scored 4 goals and could have scored 4 more.”Belgium had already qualified for Russia 2018, but they moved nine points clear atop Group H.The result was a blow to Bosnia-Herzegovina, who fell to third – behind Greece – with one match remaining.last_img read more

Feel Good Friday: Richer Poorer’s Honest Hustle

first_img Helpful Wine Terminology So You Sound Like You Know What You’re Talking About Editors’ Recommendations The Ultimate Pillow Guide: The 6 Best Pillows for All Sleepers We have all have heard of the corporate executive who gets so lost in his world of power and money that he finally takes a break and finds his inner self and true meaning. Well Richer Poorer co-founders, Iva Pawling and Tim Morse aren’t exactly old Wall Street badgers, but they do strive to be continually inspired, hence their recent ‘Honest Hustle’ excursion.Medellin, Colombia was the destination with El Camino Travel, along with some dope influencers such as Tag Cristof, Master Williams, Mister Spoils, Ben Schuyler and more. They headed down to Medellin to seek out the honest hustlers of Colombia with the opportunity for Richer Poorer to be an amplifier of their messages and knowledge.On their trip, a few of the honest hustlers they met include:Federico Rios Escobar – a photojournalist that has spent the last three years embedded with the FARC, the militia who has been fighting the government of Colombia for almost 60 years.Maria Paulina – Creative Director of MÂKUA Jewelry, which creates hundreds of jobs for people in Colombia. Julian Caesar – A dancer who uses dance as a form of healing and processing emotions with young, sexually abused girls.  We asked the owners to elaborate on their recent adventure:How did the concept of Honest Hustle come about?We started Richer Poorer from scratch, with little more than an idea, a few dollars and a mountain of inspiration. We had to be really thoughtful, humble and scrappy to move the brand forward and that’s the essence of the honest hustle. It’s the cornerstone of the culture we’ve created at Richer Poorer, and what we want to champion in those around us.If we can inspire the next group of hustlers to find their own path and forge down it with mostly certainty, a little bit of doubt, and a whole lot of honesty, then we’ve done our jobs.Is this your first ‘Honest Hustle’ trip?It is! We spend so much time telling the stories of the people in our backyard who are hustling hard to further their passions. We all have the same wins and losses, moment of exuberance and failure. We believed that this was a common thread in all of us regardless of geographical location and means, and that it would make for amazing exploration and content creation if we could take our hustlers to places afar and outside of our comfort zone.Who is El Camino Travel and how did this partnership happen?The founder of El Camino Travel, Katalina, is one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met. She follows her passion and hustles harder and more honestly than anyone. I had seen the magic she was creating with the El Camino trips and was completely inspired to have her plan one for Richer Poorer. Her message is to be a traveler, not a tourist. That’s a powerful way to see the world and we wanted to plan our first Honest Hustle trip with her filter in place. After a few conversations, we crafted the trip quickly and built it around meeting local entrepreneurs, makers and creatives in Medellin. We were then lucky enough to get the perfect cast of characters to join us on the journey.Why Colombia?Medellin has been through incredible struggle over the last few decades, and the people of the city have come out of it in such a compassionate way with unmatchable strength. There has been an explosion of local business growth there, being dubbed as the Silicon Valley of South America. The script of what we read here domestically is so narrowly focused on Narcos, Pablo Escobar, and drugs, which we wanted to be a part of changing and telling the stories of all the immensely talented people that are there today.How did you discover these local ‘hustlers’ in Colombia and is Richer Poorer helping them in any way?Katalina made all the connections for us through her vast network of people in Colombia. We got to know such a varied group of individuals that were all so very inspiring – a photojournalist who has been embedded with the FARQ for the last three years and is documenting the process of an almost truce between them and the government for the first time in 60 years – to an entrepreneur bringing great coffee back to Colombia and creating an actual café culture, which, believe it or not hasn’t ever existed since all the best beans that are grown there are exported – to a lighting designer and manufacturer who works with local artisans to create incredible lamps at reasonable prices because she believes everyone deserves beautiful things.The biggest take away that I hope people see from our trips, and the message of the honest hustle, is that we are traveling to places afar and new to be inspired and gain these human connections. These relationships are being built with equals and we are putting these people together to grow and learn from the experience. While someone from our group may be able to help someone with tips on their Instagram account, in return we’re finding our passions reinvigorated. Hustlers + Hustlers = Magic.

These Automotive Icons Coffee Tables Take Supercars from Road to Living Room

first_img What Wrangler Is Doing to Make Denim More Sustainable Discommon isn’t your typical manufacturer. Sure, they’ve created memorable products for big name brands like Oakley and The Macallan, but what really sets them apart is what goes on behind the scenes, in what they describe as their “creative gymnasium”: Discommon Goods. Led by Mechanical Engineer and Advanced Product Development expert Neil Ferrier and longtime product developer and CAD wiz Jeremy Haden, the Discommon Goods boasts a team of top-notch designers comprised of unnamed industry leaders who collaborate on all the innovative, outside-the-box, and downright wacky ideas they may not get to do in their day jobs. The results are impeccably planned products that surprise, delight, and inspire awe – and their latest creation is certainly no exception.The Automotive Icons Table Series is a 10-piece collection of bespoke coffee tables that combine vivid creativity with impeccable machining to pay tribute to iconic vehicle design, and the results are sleek, innovative, utterly unique pieces of furniture that will delight gearheads and design enthusiasts alike. The project started out as just another crazy idea – one that would involve hours of design time and was sure to test the studio’s ever-expanding machining limits. Never a group to shy away from a challenge, the idea got stuck in the team’s craw and before they knew it, over 100 hours of design time had been poured into perfecting vehicle models and finalizing textures and finishes for the series – a commitment that shines through in the final product. Each table is machined from a single, 4-foot-long, 3-inch-thick block of aluminum, and Discommon worked with long-time partner and pervasive aluminum innovator Neal Feay to perfect the look of classic vehicle designs emerging from liquid metal (think T1000 meets Transformers).The Automotive Icons Table Series Ford GTFour tables have been completed for the series so far (including a Ferrari F40 and a Ford GT), with the rest set to be privately commissioned so that future owners can have a hand in the design and manufacturing process. A Lamborghini Miura is on the list, and other designs could potentially feature planes or ships emerging from the tables in place of cars.With such a high level of craftsmanship and creativity, you may not be surprised to learn that many of Discommon’s limited run products can sell out in a flash, but we’ve got some great news for you on that front: visit the company’s website and you can sign up to be one of The Insiders – a group of customers that receive first notice of new projects and access to the most limited runs produced by the team. If you’re a fan of innovation, boundless creativity, and impressive collaboration, Discommon is a group you’ll definitely want to keep an eye on.

Defence chief promises to fix morale tours plays down allegations of partying

first_imgOTTAWA – The military’s top general has promised to get to the bottom of what happened on a recent Team Canada tour, but says he has never heard of widespread problems with the morale-boosting trips.The Team Canada program has been under a cloud since military police charged former NHL player Tiger Williams earlier this month with sexually assaulting an Air Force steward while participating in a tour to Latvia in December.Since then, various media reports have painted a picture of heavy drinking and partying during such trips, which involve the military flying athletes and celebrities overseas to meet with Canadian troops deployed abroad.Chief of defence staff Gen. Jonathan Vance announced on Friday that he is banning alcohol from all future Team Canada tours and suspending the program temporarily until military officials can determine what, if anything, needs to be fixed before resuming the trips.“If we’ve gone off the rails a little bit there, we’ll put it back on the rails,” Vance said on the sidelines of a defence conference organized by the Canadian Defence Associations Institute, where he confirmed that a planned trip in March had been cancelled.“It’s all about those many Canadians who volunteered, and sometimes repeatedly, to go raise the morale of the troops, which I’m grateful for and I don’t want to stop. So we’ll get it going as quickly as we can, but we’ll do it right.”But the chief of defence staff also insisted media reports portraying the tours in a poor light aren’t accurate, and that his own experience — and those of others — had found them to be well-run and good for the military.“At this juncture, all I’ve got is my own experience and those who have been on Team Canadas before who would not characterize it as you did,” Vance told reporters, adding that he has never seen “widespread heavy drinking” on such a tour.The Toronto Star reported last weekend that several passengers on the December tour to Latvia arrived in Ottawa already drunk before embarking on the Team Canada visit, and that two were so inebriated that they urinated in their seats.The paper also reported that the steward who Williams was alleged to have assaulted on the first leg of the tour was forced to return to Canada on a commercial flight, but that the former hockey player was allowed to continue on the tour.Vance did not delve into specifics Friday, saying he had yet to review an internal report from the Air Force on the trip, but did defend the way military commanders responded once the allegation against Williams was brought to their attention.And rather than setting back his efforts in recent years to shed the military’s reputation as an institution that is hostile to women, Vance suggested the affair had proven that the Armed Forces is serious about dealing with misconduct.“When it became known by an authority in command, the aircraft commander, that that had happened, the ball rolled very quickly,” he said.“It went from there to investigation to arrest in five weeks. Lightning fast…. The decision to separate and ensure that the victim was cared for was job number 1. And the RCAF did the best they could under the circumstances.”— Follow @leeberthiaume on Twitterlast_img read more

Its humbling Alberta scientists help track highenergy neutrino

first_imgEDMONTON – Canadian scientists are part of an international team that has for the first time tracked a tiny, high-energy twist of matter to its source in deep space.University of Alberta astronomer Greg Sivakoff says tracing a single neutrino to a black hole four billion light-years distant will give researchers a whole new way to probe the universe’s most exotic secrets — what astronomers call multimessenger astronomy.“It’s like sitting down to a good meal,” said Sivakoff, one of five Canadians who are part of the team.“A good dish will look good, smell good, feel good and the taste will be good. A good meal will engage all of your senses.“Multimessenger astronomy is the beginning of us sitting down to the meal and doing more than just looking at it. We’re beginning to have more than one sense.”The story begins last Sept. 22 at the IceCube observatory in Antarctica, a cubic kilometre of solid ice interlaced with thousands of sensors to detect subatomic particles.That day, scientists detected an evanescent flash of blue light caused by a particle called a muon. This muon was special for two reasons.First, it carried a huge amount of energy — about 20 times as much energy as that generated in the largest man-made particle accelerator ever built. Second, it came from below, not above.“This particular particle was coming out from under the Antarctic ice,” Sivakoff said. “It couldn’t have been a muon that was generated in our atmosphere. It had to be a muon that was generated within the Earth itself and the only way you can do that is with a neutrino.”Like a forensics team tracing the path of a bullet, scientists were able to combine data from different sensors within IceCube to deduce the original path of the neutrino.“This is how we were able to know where in the sky the neutrino was coming from.”After comparing notes with colleagues around the globe, IceCube researchers were able to conclude the neutrino originated from a blazar, a type of galaxy with a super-massive black hole at its heart. It set out on its journey a little over four billion years ago, a time when life on Earth was just beginning.The conclusion answered a big question in astronomy about how such high-energy particles are generated. It could go on to answer much more.Until now, scientists have studied stars with visible light, electromagnetic radiation such as radio waves and, most recently, gravity waves. Discovering the source of high-energy neutrinos and tracking their path allows astronomers to use a completely new tool.Much remains to be done before then. Scientists need to study more such neutrino events and link them with other sources to really understand how the process works.But Sivakoff said multimessenger astronomy is eventually likely to answer questions about some of the universe’s most bizarre and spectacular phenomena — black holes, neutron stars, novas.It’s akin to when Galileo first turned a telescope on the heavens.“Every time we open up a new window into the universe, we learn new things — not just things we expected,” Sivakoff said. “Oftentimes, those things we didn’t expect go on to be the biggest discoveries.“It’s humbling.”The discoveries were published Thursday in the journal Science.— Follow Bob Weber on Twitter at @row1960Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version said Sivakoff’s first name was David.last_img read more

Mens Soccer Ohio State falls to Cleveland State 20 on Connor Senn

Ohio State then-freshman forward Joshua Jackson-Ketchup (9) takes the ball downfield during the Ohio State- BGSU game on Sep. 22. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignThere is no doubt the Ohio State men’s soccer team came out playing to win their match against Cleveland State on Friday. The opening 15 minutes provided a look at an aggressive Buckeye squad, perhaps more aggressive than it has been all season long. They made passes they normally would not have tried to make in earlier matches. Redshirt senior midfielder Brady Blackwell split his way through two defenders in a spot where he may have elected to pull up and wait for something to develop alongside him. However, even with the increased intensity and aggressiveness, Ohio State (1-8-2) still came up short, falling to Cleveland State (3-5-1) 2-0 on Friday night. Ohio State head coach Brian Maisonneuve cited the fact that his team outshot Cleveland State and created more corner kicks than their opponents, yet said he was troubled by the fact that they are finding ways to lose games.“I mean, right now, you look at the stats and I think we outshot them 10-5, we out corner kicked them 4-1 and you know right now it’s unfortunate because sometimes we’re finding ways to lose games,” Maisonneuve said.For the next 15 minutes, the game seemed to calm down some, a chance here and look there, but nothing too threatening to either goalkeeper. Ohio State redshirt junior goalkeeper Parker Siegfried plucked a contested pass, bound for the head of a Cleveland State attacker, out of the air.On the other end, Ohio State senior forward Michael Prosuk saw his free kick glide just over the crossbar. But the rest of the game did not go to plan for the Buckeyes. “That is part of the building process but eventually that is kind of a learned behavior is how you find ways to win games and we’re doing the opposite right now,” Maisonneuve said. “So, I mean, we’ve got to focus on that and really find ways to pull these out.”Cleveland State opened the scoring in the 38th minute when junior midfielder/forward Lawrence Karpeh ripped home a blistering shot from over 30 yards out.The second half rolled around and the Vikings added to their lead. A turnover in the midfield lead to a three on two fast break opportunity for the Vikings in the 59th minute and sophomore midfielder/forward Zach Kluever finished the job to make it 2-0 and provide the dagger for Cleveland State.“At the end of the day we’ve got to come out fighting and we may be having probably the roughest start ever, you know, here at Ohio State but it’s all about mentality and how we, you know, bounce back,” sophomore forward Joshua Jackson-Ketchup said. That’s all that matters and if we keep grinding then things will turn around and we’ve just got to look at the bigger picture and look at the future really.”The Buckeyes (1-8-2, 0-3-1) travel to Syracuse to take on the Orange on Monday. read more

County council picks four finalists for judges spot

first_imgThe Clark County councilors selected four candidates Monday to interview out of the seven who applied to succeed retiring District Court Judge James Swanger.District Court Commissioner Kristen Parcher, former Superior Court Judge Roger Bennett, criminal defense attorney Chad Sleight and Assistant Vancouver City Attorney Brent Boger were chosen to proceed to the final step of the application process. They will be interviewed individually between 1 and 5 p.m. Tuesday on the sixth floor of the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St., Vancouver, in conference room 683 inside the council’s office. Each interview will last about 45 minutes and is open to the public.The council largely based its choices on the candidates’ résumés and the Clark County Bar Association’s preference poll released last week. Bar association members overwhelmingly supported Parcher as the top pick to replace Swanger. Bennett, Sleight and Boger were ranked second, third and fourth, respectively.Council Chair Marc Boldt said he was a “little disappointed” by the poll’s lack of information — primarily, how it was conducted. He would have liked some context, he said, on how the bar vets the candidates. Councilor Julie Olson added that the poll seems to indicate which candidates local lawyers are most familiar with.However, the council members agreed that the poll should be given significant weight in determining whom to interview. They went down the opinion poll’s final tally to make the top four selections.last_img read more

3 and easy for Zanaco as Armed Forces punished in Zambia

first_imgBy Sulayman BahZanaco midfielder Jack Chileshe predicted an audacious 5-0 win and they came within touching distance of the target as they made a light work of the visiting Gambians.It was a three and easy ride for a side yet to even kick a ball in the Zambian Super League unlike their opponents who’re almost ten games into the Gambia Football Federation Fist Division.For a ball-possessing side, the numbers did not reflect Armed Forces worth.The soldiers owned the game, dominating 88 of the 100% while the hosts enjoyed a mere 12. But the Zanaco still worked the magic as their sit-back-and hit-on-the break tactic paid off , leaving Armed Forces’ defense exposed to the core.Saturday’s game marked the Gambian team’s return to the CAF Total Champions League –albeit not a pleasing one – following a nine-year absence.The result laid bare gaffer Ebou Jarra side’s weaknesses with many now expecting the second-leg against Zanaco in Banjul to be a damage limitation exercise rather than fighting for the points.last_img read more

Apple News Poaches New York Magazine Executive Editor

first_imgLauren Kern is leaving New York Magazine for a role as editor-in-chief of Apple News, the nascent digital news platform which currently curates other outlets’ news for iPhone users around the world, Folio: has confirmed.  Plus, as Moss said, they have a substantial audience. As of last year, Apple reported 70 million active users of the app. That’s 3.5 times the 19.8 million monthly uniques reported by New York in its media kit.  New York has done well under Kern’s leadership, taking home three Ellies at this year’s National Magazine Awards. And while Moss launches his search for a replacement, the real question is what this signals for Apple News. Kern, who has been executive editor since 2014, will finish up at New York on June 2, according to a memo obtained by CNN. She also worked at the magazine from 2004 to 2010, with time in between at New York Times Magazine. So is the future of Apple News that of a distributive content creator or just a keenly edited curation device? Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Folio:. For now, it’s anyone’s guess.center_img “It’s an exciting opportunity to be the editor-in-chief of Apple News, to bring journalistic vigor and intelligence to an operation that has always seemed to me so full of promise,” Adam Moss, editor-in-chief of the magazine, wrote in the memo. “Apple has the audience — all they needed was a superior editorial intelligence to guide it.” The app, which comes preinstalled with iOS, doesn’t currently have original content. Its homepage includes curated top stories from a range of participating media brands — including New York — as well as the ability to sort news by topic. Like Facebook and Google, Apple has positioned itself as a partner to news organizations, rather than a competitor. Publications can sell their own ads within Apple News, or partner with Apple for ad sales. They also have a web-based editing tool and share metrics on reader engagement.last_img read more

Supporters Of Statewide MexicanAmerican Studies Curriculum To Hold Rally In Austin

first_imgTiffany SzerpickiSupporters of a statewide Mexican-American studies curriculum will hold a rally today outside the State Board of Education meeting in Austin. They want the board to name the course “Mexican-American Studies.” The board in April approved the name “Ethnic Studies: An Overview of Americans of Mexican Descent.”  Republican member David Bradley of Beaumont requested the change because he said he didn’t like quote – hyphenated Americanism.The five Democrats on the board voted against the suggestion. They said not calling the course “Mexican-American Studies” does not accurately characterize the identities of Mexican-Americans.The course has to go through a series of approvals from the board before it’s adopted in the fall.

With the emergence of blockchain technology, innovation seems far from over, and as new processes and systems emerge, entrepreneurs should be looking for market pain points in need of innovative solutions.Related: How Blockchain Is Poised to Disrupt the Gig EconomyOf all the industries that can benefit from blockchain solutions, three stand out.Transparency and traceability in supply chain management Traceability, transparency and authenticity are the three key pillars of efficient logistics. However, the present day standard databases that are used to store the key information about the goods in transit are neither efficient nor foolproof. The records can be easily tampered with and manipulated, information is often not available or updated in real-time, and there is a serious lack of transparency, with no way for consumers to be able to track products from their origin to their endpoint.Blockchain offers an efficient solution to such problems. If, for example, a drug is manufactured in Singapore and shipped to a U.S.-based patient, with a specific need to be stored below 4 degrees Celsius, placing a blockchain-supported RFID tag on the drug will cancel out the possibility of any damage or misuse occurring during transport. Smart sensors equipped with RFID record all necessary details and broadcast them in real time to the blockchain network, which will be accessible to all parties involved. In case of any violations, alerts can be sent out to all stakeholders who will then be able to deal with the issue instantly. Recording all data points on the tamperproof blockchain will ensure that the end customer will be able to track every single movement of the drug from its source to end delivery and the use of smart contracts will help in reducing the overhead costs and paperwork.VeChain, which calls itself “the Ethereum for business,” is a suppy chain management blockchain company that has partnered with firms like PwC and DNV GL. It is attempting to solve logistics problems of luxury brand items such as wine, auto car parts and the drug industry. IBM is also working on a supply chain blockchain, and has use cases that include massive retailers such as Walmart. The U.K.’s Food Standards Agency (FSA), a safety watchdog, recently announced that it has successfully piloted a blockchain-based supply chain monitoring system.Related: How You Can Build a Career in BlockchainBlockchain solutions for customer loyalty programsResearch reports suggest that bringing in new customers costs up to five times more than retaining an existing one. Can blockchain help in maintaining customer satisfaction thereby maximizing business profits?Loyalty points-based systems are one of the most popular ways to retain customers who repeatedly purchase more in order to cash previously earned loyalty points. Despite its success, these types of programs pose challenges to businesses. Along with operational overheads, if a large number of customers cash out their loyalty points at the same time, the margins of the business take a hit. Many times, customers also are dissatisfied with loyalty points if they have limited options of places to redeem them.Creating such a system on a common-token based blockchain can help these issues. Instead of business-specific loyalty points, customers can be given blockchain tokens shared by various companies. If many unrelated businesses join the same network, it will significantly reduce their costs and customers will benefit from having more options on which to spend their loyalty points. You could earn loyalty tokens at your grocery store or from you air-miles program and spend it on a car wash or phone bill payment. Tokens can also be traded among customers, increasing their value, and even if a whole group of customers cashes out tokens at a particular store, the business will be minimally impacted as it can also use the tokens it receives.BitRewards operates as a blockchain-based loyalty platform and allows retailers to reward their customers’ purchases with BIT crypto tokens. Blockpoint is another similar platform that supports build multi-merchant loyalty point coalition programs, and also supports gift cards. Deloitte is offering its solutions for similar implementations.Related: Basic Blockchain Lingo Every Entrepreneur Needs to KnowAdvertising directly to consumers without intermediaries Merchants and businesses often rack up high advertising costs as a significant cut goes to the intermediary. Along with many issues in the process, when user data is shared with so many parties, it’s privacy and security are compromised. For instance, we saw in the Cambridge Analytica scandal over 50 million users’ data was accessed by a third party without their knowledge or consent.Blockchain-based advertising platforms offer better ROI with lower costs and enhanced data security. Offering direct connections between advertisers and publishers, both parties can look at a variety of options and choose the ones that suit them best with the open rating system ensuring transparency and feedback.QChain is a digital ledger application offering buying and selling of digital advertising, including native advertising. AdHive is another blockchain tech startup that has automated placement of native advertising with influencers allowing for greater efficiency and time savings. AdEx attempts to eliminate advertising frauds and pays only for valid clicks.These are only a few of the industries in need of blockchain solutions, with more innovators, investors, and developers moving to the space, we will see overhauling of systems and the proliferation of blockchain tech in many more across the board.
