Good morning. Yeah Womens Eric Kush Jersey , sounds funny to say that, but it really is a mark of how expectations change as years and seasons and games go on. The Bears still lead the NFC North at the present moment, but the Patriots come to town, and that’s always a tough game.Rob Gronkowski did not make the trip to Chicago, which is a big break for the Bears, what with a hobbled Kahlil Mack and all. But there’s also Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, Chris Hogan, and Sony Michel... eh, some other guy named Tom Baldy, or Tom Brady, or something, I’m hazy on the details.The point is, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick just always find a way for the Patriots to be relevant, and not just relevant, but really really good. If the Navy and Orange hope to build off the last two games of Mitchell Trubisky’s offensive growth and prove they’ve arrived, a good showing against the Patriots’ defense is going to be huge. The Bears have lost their two games on Packers’ Last Second Devil Magic and the Dolphins’ last second field goal in overtime. Somehow , I doubt this squad is up for a third of those.To 4-2. Bear Down, my friends.______________________________________________________________After being off for much of the last three weeks, we have a full show once again. For about two hours or so leading up to just before game time, Sam and I will break down the Dolphins’ game with our top-notch weather coverage and discussion of the game that took place. How much went wrong against the Dolphins? A lot.We welcome your comments and questions, and if you want to throw them at us, here are your avenues to do so:Here. Yes, here. Look down. Start typing, or voice-to-type, or however you post your messages. Bring it on.Over on the Twitch site, over at over on our Twitters: I’m at @SJS_illini, he’s at @SamHouseholderWe’ll see you in about 30 minutes.Watch Highlight: WCG Sunday Livestream | WEEK 7 | BEARS VS PATRIOTS from SJS_illini on They are who we thought they were, and we let them off the hook. Any time the Bears play the Cardinals, that famous Dennis Green quote will forever live on. For the first time in three years while matching up against Chicago, perhaps the Cardinals are actually who we thought they were: one of the worst teams in the NFL. Though, for posterity’s sake, I guess you could still say that about the poor Bears offense led by Mitchell Trubisky for the time being. The Bears have the heavy advantage over Arizona at most every position. Whether they take advantage of it is a different story that still needs to be told. Here’s Windy City Gridiron’s staff picks for Bears-Cardinals.Robert Zeglinski: Bears 26 Cardinals 10The Cardinals might be the worst team in the NFL, and the Bears well, aren’t.Lester Wiltfong Jr.: Bears 23 Cardinals 10Matt Nagy reigns things in just a bit on offense , and they play more efficiently, but the defense will be who we thought they’d be.Aaron Leming: Bears 27 Cardinals 10The Bears’ elite defense against a struggling Cardinals team? Yeah, good luck with that Arizona. Jacob Infante: Bears 24 Cardinals 9The Bears defense has a field day with one of the worst offenses in the NFL.Sam Householder: Cardinals 6 Bears 3This is a trap game. The Bears aren’t good and I don’t trust them, even against a team that’s scored six total points this season.Jack Silverstein: Bears 30 Cardinals 14Jordan Howard’s big day (21 carries, 122 yards, two touchdowns) balances another dominant defensive drowning (six sacks, three takeaways, with Roquan Smith’s first interceptions).Ken Mitchell: Bears 24 Cardinals 17Under John Fox, the Bears were 1-8 in games they were favored by Las Vegas.This isn’t Fox’s team anymore. The Bears are a better football team than the Cardinals, and will find a way to win this road game. Andrew Link: Bears 31 Cardinals 3The offense takes another baby step and the secondary eats Sam Bradford’s, then Mike Glennon’s lunch. E.J. Snyder: Bears 27 Cardinals 13The Cardinals quarterbacks have to be dreading this one after watching Chicago’s pass rush round into shape so quickly this season.Steven Schweickert: Bears 21 Cardinals 17I had to make sure Glennon wasn’t taking snaps. The kind of game a good team should destroy and not look back. Naturally, it’ll be closer than we want it to be.Erik Duerrwaechter: Bears 27 Cardinals 6 Trubisky takes a needed step forward, and the Bears defense feasts on a low-powered offense anchored by a suspect offensive line. Whiskey Ranger: Bears 27 Cardinals 6I’m not sure the Cardinals are even showing up for their games at this point, or if they are subcontracting local high school teams to play for them (I’m sure there’s an app for that).WCG Contributors: Jeff Berckes; Patti Curl; Eric Christopher Duerrwaechter; Kev H; Sam Householder; Jacob Infante; Aaron Lemming; Andrew Link; Ken Mitchell; Steven Schweickert; Jack Silverstein; EJ Snyder; Lester Wiltfong, Jr.; Robert Zeglinski; Like us on Facebook.


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?

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.

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!
