 see Monday’s game Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL Bryce Callahan Jersey , powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Bears fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.These FanPulse surveys are short and sweet, but I think they provide some neat info for us to share each week. This first question, gauging our confidence in the Chicago Bears, will likely fluctuate with wins and losses. The narrow loss on Sunday Night Football to the Green Bay Packers caused a 11% dip in this week’s poll. Check out this week’s results in the graphic below. How confident are you in the direction of the team? Last week: 93 percent confidenceI’d expect a similar drop if the Bears lose on Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks in Chicago’s home opener, but if they even their record at 1-1, I predict we’re back up over 90%.Will the Bears win or lose in Week 2?Odds: Bears are 3-point favoritesWindy City Gridiron FanPulse: Bears by 6Field Gulls FanPulse: Seahawks by 2I’m not surprised that Bears’ fans are taking the Bears, while Seahawks’ fans are picking the Seahawks. The average scoring margin tells me that we’re a lot more confident in our team than they are with theirs however. For the record, I picked the Bears to win by 10.This results of the final question this week pleases me. Other than QB, what is most valuable to an NFL offense? Left tackle was the overwhelming answer across all the FanPulse team surveys. I’m always good seeing the offensive line getting some love. I voted for the left tackle too, but a good argument could be made that right tackle is up there too. Defenses no longer exclusively put their best edge rusher on their right side to attack the blindside of QBs. Chicago’s Khalil Mack (I still smile when I type that) and Denver’s Von Miller are two of the best sack-artists in the game today, and both do most of their damage of the defense’s left side. What are your thoughts on the FanPulse this week?And if you haven’t joined, JOIN HERE! For the second straight week, the Bears were the favorites. This time Authentic Charles Leno Jersey , the Arizona Cardinals were the underdog, and at home no less. It wasn’t pretty, but the pass rush has continued to impress. The Bears, after notching 4 more sacks on Sunday, are leading the NFL with 14 total. At their current pace, the Bears would end up with either 74 or 75 sacks, which would set a new NFL record that is currently held by...the 1984 Bears. Can they possibly keep this up? Let’s hope so!Let’s get to the fun, shall we?Week 3 at the CardinalsSack 1 - Second quarter 1:42 (3rd & 12) - Akiem HicksAkiem Hicks might have ended up with the sack here, but this was a collective effort. The first thing to watch is Khalil Mack. He is triple-teamed on this play, uses his bull rush, and collapses the right side of the offensive line. In addition to Mack, Leonard Floyd beats his man with a swim move but ends up stumbling while off-balance. He recovers in time to help flush Sam Bradford right into the waiting arms of Hicks. It’s hard to tell if this was a stunt or if Hicks just saw an opening but a job well done for cleaning this up and punching the ball out. I am going to notch this as a Team Sack.Sack 2 - Second quarter 0:45 (3rd & 8) - Khalil MackMack is just a human wrecking ball. Here he sees yet another double-team. Mack sets up right tackle D.J. Humphries outside, while right guard Mike Iupati has Eddie Goldman on the inside. After the initial setup, Mack’s sheer speed to burst under Humphries, just ruins Iupati’s day by slamming him into center Mason Cole Youth Akiem Hicks Jersey , then able to still bring down Bradford is beyond what any mortal human should be able to do. This is truly an elite play! Sack 3 - Fourth quarter 11:33 (2nd & 8) - Khalil MackThis is the first sack of Mack’s that hasn’t been him just whipping the guy(s) across from him. Aaron Lynch does a great job of bending the edge opposite of Mack. Hicks has a nice bull rush which keeps Bradford to the left side where Roy Robertson-Harris is stalemated with a double-team. Mack disengages from the running back quickly and follows the play, he punches at the ball as he brings down Bradford to cause his 3rd strip-sack of the season. Sorry Khalil, this is going in the Team Sacks category. Sack 4 - Fourth quarter 0:05 (1st & 10) - Sherrick McManisI want to give this sack to Sherrick McManis so bad, but he isn’t the first to get there, and should have been the guy that helps brings down rookie Josh Rosen. This is an as all-out of a blitz as Vic Fangio calls, sending 6 and dropping 5 in coverage. McManis actually initially misses the spot where Rosen was as he was forced to step up in the pocket from his, Floyd’s, and Danny Trevathan’s rush. This should have been Trevathan’s sack but he misses. McManis, Bryce Callahan, and Mack stay with the play and McManis finally wrestles him down with a slight assist by Mack. Ah, screw it, I’m giving it to McManis!Pressure of the WeekFourth quarter 1:16 (4th & 5) - Roy Robertson-HarrisWho says that rushing the passer doesn’t lead to interceptions? Certainly not this guy! The credit for this hurry officially goes to RRH but I think it should be halved with Lynch, who had another solid game. Lynch beats right tackle Humphries with an outside dip/rip move. RRH is on a tackle twist move where he crosses the face of the center Cole and gets in Rosen’s face quickly. The combination of Lynch and RRH leads to the rushed throw and the Callahan interception to virtually seal the game. How about a HUGE shoutout to Danger Will Robinson (aka Whiskey Ranger) for the Rush Report logo!?!?Here’s how I have the individual* Rush Report after week 1.Khalil Mack - 3Team Sacks - 3Akiem Hicks - 1Roy Robertson-Harris - 1Roquan Smith - 1Eddie Goldman - 1Danny Trevathan - 1Sherrick McManis - 1SINO - 1Aaron Lynch - 0.5Bryce Callahan - 0.5*These numbers do not reflect a players official statistics.


Bitcoin economics has not changed

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY A WHOLE BTC BITCOIN! Each bitcoin is equal to 100 million Satoshis, making a Satoshi the smallest unit of bitcoin currently recorded on the blockchain. Think of the Satoshi as the “cents” part of bitcoin. But unlike a penny that represents 0.01 USD, Satoshi represents roughly 0.00000001 BTC — or bitcoin to its eighth decimal.

Bitcoin forecast to 2029

Time model tends to forecast lower bound to prices. Stock-to-Flow model is a better model, click chart above to see details. It incorporates the halvings and better represents the monetary policy of Bitcoin. Hype cycles are expected around each halving as investors anticipate the price appreciation. Bitcoin has a fixed supply (maximum 21 million Bitcoins), therefore it cannot be devalued by central bank money printing (so called Quantitative Easing, QE). Bitcoin is also decentralised, meaning no single authority can control it. It has existed on the Internet for 10 years from 2009. It will be the money of the machines and Internet. Also described as digital gold due to its scarcity and high value.

This is a good short article that explains, why Bitcoin? Why Bitcoin?

Run your own Full Node and help the Bitcoin (BTC) network. Be Your Own Bank! There are currently (May 2018) about 138,000 full nodes globally. About 10,000 of these are listening for outside connections on the P2P network.

As people suddenly realise they don’t own their data on Facebook, how will they react when they realise they don't own the money in their bank accounts either?

The good news is government can't take your Bitcoin in your own full node. Not by legalised theft (inflation), nor by government bail ins. Realise that fiat money, $, €, ¥, £, yuan, Venezuelan Bolívar, Argentine Peso, Zimbabwean Dollar, etc. is crashing! In the last 100 years, all fiat currencies have lost 97-99% of their purchasing power, reducing your standard of living.

Physical Gold


Protect yourself and family from central bank currency debasement and inflation in asset prices, housing, food. There are rising levels of financial, economic and geopolitical risk in the world. In the last 100 years, all currencies have lost 97-99% of their purchasing power. Some believe that the final move to zero will take place in the next few years.

Currency debasement through money printing is the destruction of fiat money purchasing power - $, €, ¥, £, yuan, Venezuelan Bolívar, Argentine Peso, Zimbabwean Dollar...

True inflation and cost of living is currently 8% higher than the government reports. Real wages are falling rapidly and most people are taking out more and more debt to make ends meet. Only the wealthy minority and banks benefit from the current system.

Protect yourself. Buy physical, allocated gold, silver, platinum online and store it in safe vaults outside your jurisdiction (Switzerland, UK, USA, Canada and Singapore) or, at home. Physical gold has limited supply. Buy before the panic!

Look what happened in Cyprus (2013), Greece (2015) and Spain (Catalonia 2017). The lesson is that the money in your bank account is not really yours. It can be taken or frozen by the government just when you need it. Maybe it is not a good idea to keep too much money in the bank, especially when the next financial crisis comes!
