Re: Whats the story with BitCoins ? Is anyone long BC or actually own any BC?  I think there is definitely some potential for growth here.

Re: BitCoin Master Thread Digital currency is probably going to be worth something forever, starting with when it becomes a stable means of storing economic value. But right now its value is just based on hype - and Bitcoin has the most shills, so it's worth the most. Thus far none of the digital currencies have anything to offer society other than what they have convinced people their potential is. So whichever currency you choose to invest in, you've merely gambled/bet on its future dominance over the myriad of rival currencies.

Ethereum IMHO may become the first coin to provide something of value to the economy because of the smart contracts. I was involved in BTC since 2012 (part of a mining pool briefly) but this year I moved everything over to Ether (mild ouch, but actually not far behind in terms of gains had I not moved).

BTC and other digital currencies are not a Ponzi scheme, but do have many of the negative characteristics. Its value is probably all based on the success of its shills. Continued strong growth in the user base is critical to its existence (and whether or not they are suckers depends on continued growth after they join). Also, look carefully at the concentration of Bitcoin nodes in China. Sure, everyone is an individual, but the Chinese government has control over internet access within their borders. That means China has the power to take 75% of all nodes offline, which would severely damage consensus in the blockchain. Of course, everything is rosy until it isn't.

Problems that are nearly certain to come along are: Issues with the length of the blockchain, the impending need to pay blockchain nodes for their service, negative sentiment from inevitable incidents of hacking/theft of coin. Forks too, i.e. dissent among the coders, but in my view that's no different from a new currency popping up out of nowhere. These aren't problems that will end a currency, but they will drive down confidence in it and therefore, price (at least temporarily).

Re: BitCoin Master Thread
What do you think that would take? I think it would take a sovereign adopting it. Which means it will be bitdollar, and not bitcoin.

That would definitely do it, but I think wide enough individual acceptance would work too. We are so extremely far away from that goal no matter how it is eventually achieved - right now more than 90% of people would not even be able to figure out how to purchase a BTC and store it.

Re: BitCoin Master Thread
Is it ironic that the ppl making this think they're obviating government, but the government ends up holding everyone's private key and knowing every single thing you own and do?

No way. Government holding everyone's private key? Why would you even think such a thing?

BTW, there is some really fascinating history with RSA encryption where that was actually proposed. Basically, the government wanted to ban encryption because it would prevent them from interpreting messages sent by criminals or terrorists. Privacy activists were horrified that everyone's correspondence would be open for anyone to read. It used to take effort to intercept messages, so no one would bother to intercept common communications, but once electronic communication took off, intercepting messages became trivial so encryption became important even to common people. The "moderate" viewpoint was to create a "key escrow" agency that would hold all private keys and release them to the government when there was a warrant to do so.

I bet you can guess where that idea went.

Re: BitCoin Master Thread
BTC is moments away from trading at $10,000. I think that milestone will very quickly tell us how close to over the rally is. Crossing that milestone could either trigger a sell off or heighten interest. Will be interesting either way.

Not at all surprised that crossing the 10,000 mark added fuel to the rocket (it's well over $11,000 now). I think we'll see $20,000 in the near future

(wanted to buy a whole coin a few weeks ago, when it dropped to $5500, but couldn't due to the limits).

Why not buy a whole Satoshi or two? They are still priced at less than a penny each. No need to buy 100 million of them at once

Re: BitCoin Master Thread
Are we almost at the end?
Are these backed by the value of 3D Android 4.4.2 KitKat tablets?

I don't think we are. I think the majority of BTC is owned by people who are members of what is almost a quasi-religion, and they will continue to hold onto their coin because they want it to become a valid currency. Then you have an enormous amount of VC or similar investors, and they know the potential boost that can come after a futures market is established. Definitely would not do anything to jeopardize or spook the futures market too soon. To top it off, although there is enormous bitcoin mania and everyone down to the barber and shoeshiner are talking about it, most are still unable to get their hands on any, so there is still an enormous amount of new money on the sidelines that wants to come in. Logic tells me there is a lot more runway before anyone pulls back on the yoke.

Re: BitCoin Master Thread
A good article on ethereum amd why it is more worthwhile to pay attention to than bitcoin in the long run. Obviously, I like it because it aligns with my viewpoint but at a minimum its educational. If not for ICOs, ETH would possibly already be worth much more than BTC

The City of Brotherly Love - dpk4588 Takes on Philadelphia Intro
I had planned on going to Philly for a few days last year but it fell through so when my sister who lives outside of Philly told me to come for Shabbos, it presented a chance to follow through on that planned trip. It was also good timing because I had an Chase IHG night to burn which was expiring soon.

Since Kimpton Hotels are now bookable with the Chase IHG free night I figured I’d try the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia. I don’t remember what the cash rate was but it costs 55k IHG for one night, so I’d say the $49 I spend on the annual fee for the card was well worth it. When I checked in, I found out that as an IHG elite member I get a free $30 spa credit (which I didn’t use), and a free $10 raid the bar credit which can be used either at the hotel bar or for the mini bar.

The planning for the trip had basically already been done, since it was supposed to happen a year earlier, but I did make a few small tweaks to the plan which didn’t work out as well as planned. The funny thing was that the one real change I made to my plan was to add a museum which I didn’t end getting to go to.

The only detail I had yet to work out (and wouldn’t end up doing until the last minute) was whether I’d drive into the city and pay the $50 at the hotel for parking, or leave my car by my sister and use uber/public transportation to get around. I ended up driving downtown and regretting it. My rationale was that Ubers to and from the few attractions I was planning on that weren’t in the center of town (near the hotel), would cost close to the $50 parking fee and having the card downtown gave me the option to go out for dinner. What I didn’t factor in was the cost of tolls & parking. While the Ubers themselves would have cost ~$45-50 I crossed the Ben Franklin Bridge twice ($5 each time) and had to pay for parking at 2 of the attractions I went to, which cost another ~$15. So my actual cost of driving downtown was ~$75.

As per a suggestion I saw in the Philadelphia Master Thread, I looked at the Philadelphia Pass, and saw that everything I was planning on doing (that wasn’t free) was on there. I could have bought the 2-day pass for $84 but once I totaled all the things I planned on doing and took into account the 20% discount you get for adding 2 or more attractions to your pass, I was saving $1.24 by going with the build your own.

Sunday
I left my sister’s place around 10a getting downtown around 1030a. My first stop was the hotel for two reasons. One I always like to check-in early, to drop off my stuff, and to be able to go back and relax during the day if I feel like I need it, secondly, to be able to park my car. Everything I planned on doing Sunday was within a 10 minute walk of the hotel, so there was no need for my car. Thankfully I was able to check in and drop off my stuff. I didn’t remember if you needed to pay for Independence Hall and on the website, I saw that you need a specifically timed ticket which can either be reserved online for $1.50, or picked up at the visitors center a few blocks away. I didn’t think it would be a problem going to the visitors center to get a ticket, but my the time I got there at 10:45, the next available tour wasn’t until 12:40p. That was in theory going to cause some problems for my schedule but it ended up working out well.

I went from the visitors center to the Liberty Bell. They have a few exhibits and a short video about the history of the Liberty Bell. Then you see the bell. No I did not lick it. I didn’t watch the video, and spent a total of about 15 minutes there after getting past security which took about 15 minutes itself.

I had some time to kill since I didn’t need to be at Independence Hall until 12:20p for the security check. In reality I didn’t need to to get there until 12:35 because I flew through security (even without the help of TSA-Pre-Check). In addition to the Independence Hall tour, on Independence square, you can also see the Great Essentials Exhibit in the West Wing and the Museum of the American Philosophical Society. The tour of Independence Hall itself was interesting and started with a brief history, then you enter the two main rooms. The first room you see is the Courtroom of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and the second room is the Assembly Room, where The Declaration of Independence was written and signed and the Continental Congress met, wrote, and signed the Constitution. Pretty important historical stuff.

From Independence Hall I went on to the National Constitution Center. It was about a 5 minute walk but just my luck, that’s when the rain picked up. I made it through the rain alive and it was time for the museum.

I remember the museum being much bigger (then again most museums I went to as a kid seemed bigger than they actually are). It starts off with a ~20 show with images/videos and live narration, called “Freedom Rising” about the history of the Constitution. Which was a kinda interesting, but I honestly didn’t feel like having the live narration of a woman who was walking around the theater added anything.

After the main exhibit on the second floor, I checked out the Signers' Hall which has statues of the signers of the Constitution. There was also a small exhibit on Alexander Hamilton on the first floor. I’ve heard people say great things about the museum, and I remember my family liking it when we went years ago, but I honestly found the museum to be a bit disappointing.

Once I was done with the National Constitution Center I walked over to National Museum of American Jewish History. Originally I had planned on doing this before the Constitution Center, but I realized that the Jewish History Museum was open until 530p, which would give me an extra half hour (which I’d need). They recommend you start on the top (5th) floor and work your way down, so that’s what I did. The top floor has the special exhibits, which at the time was one on Leonard Bernstein who was born and raised in Philly. It was an interesting exhibit about his life in Philly, his career, and his connection to Israel.

Floors 4-2 go chronologically. The floors went as follows: 4th floor-Foundations of Freedom: 1654-1880, 3rd floor-Dreams of Freedom: 1880-1945, 2nd floor-Choices and Challenges of Freedom: 1945-Today. The first floor has a separate exhibit called the Only in America Gallery, which focuses on the stories of 18 American Jews and their impacts on Jewish American life overall.  I thought the museum was well done and had a wealth of information and artifacts. So much so, that I didn’t have time to see everything in my 2 hours there.

Once I was done (and by done, I mean I had to leave because the museum was closing), I went back to my hotel to relax a little before heading out for dinner.

After consulting with a few people, I decided on Cherry Grill for dinner. One would think with “Grill” in the name, that it would be a grill with burgers and that type of food, but no, it’s really a Chinese place that also serves grill food. Anyway, the I got pepper steak and it was a pretty good and a nice size portion. My only complaint was the service, while I was seated quickly, it took a while before someone came back to take my order and then a while for me to get a waiter to get me my check. I went back to my hotel and watched hockey.

Monday
I started off with a short walk to the US Mint. Unfortunately they don’t allow pictures (understandably), but it is interesting to see the history of coin production and the process itself. Between the exhibits on the history and walking through (above) the production facility, I was there about 45 minutes.

Here is where I made a mistake. I then planned on going to the Independence Seaport Museum which would require me to pick up my car from the hotel. The problem with this, which I realized later, was that I was planning on going to the Museum of the American Revolution which was down the block from my hotel. It kinda worked out because at the end of the day I didn’t have time for the Museum of the American Revolution anyway. So I picked up my car and was off to the Independence Seaport Museum. The museum doesn’t have its own parking but there are two public lots right there, both of which were super expensive ($25-$30, I think) so I parked on the street a few blocks down and paid a meter ~$3 for the two hours. I think I got the better deal.

I found the museum itself more child friendly than I would have liked, but what I did enjoy were the ships, that are part of the museum. With admission to the museum, you also get to see the USS Olympia & USS Becuna. The Olympia is the oldest steel warship afloat in the world, which is pretty cool. The USS Becuna is a Balao-Class Sub which saw action in WWII, and served several missions during the Cold War.

I got back to my car and headed for the Battleship New Jersey, which is in Camden, NJ just over the Franklin Bridge. Launched exactly a year after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Battleship New Jersey saw action in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. The New Jersey is US Navy’s most decorated battleship and surviving warship having received 19 Battle and Campaign starts. The coolest part about the ship, is that you can go inside the rear turret which is something I’ve never seen on another ship.

After leaving the New Jersey I headed for Eastern State Penitentiary, the country’s oldest penitentiary. I actually went to Eastern State in the late 90s with my family, and at the time, the building was unsafe and visitors had to wear hard hats and sign liability waivers. Things have changed, and now the building is secure. While there are guided tours daily at 2p, I missed that and had to settle with the audio tour. Online it says the audio tour takes about 35 minutes so I figured I’d leave myself an hour for extra exploring of the site, what they don’t tell you, is that the 35 minutes is for the basic audio tour, but there are a number of other “optional” stops and recordings you can listen to for a more in depth tour. I spent a little over 2 hours there (until they closed at 5p) an still didn’t get to listen to all the recordings and see all the “extra” parts.

Two special sections that I saw that I found especially interesting were the Shul, and Al Capone’s cell. The shul, which is assumed to be the first in an American prison, was created in 1924 and was used continuously until the prison closed in 1971. It was actually the first space in the prison fully restored to its 1959 appearance which was seen from photograph from the time. In addition to the shul itself, they have a space behind it which was turned into an exhibit on Jewish life overall in the prison. While Al Capone only spent 8 months at Eastern State, he certainly made his space his own, filling his cell with fancy furniture, rugs, paintings, and a radio. They actually have an update to the recording on his cell, that explains that further research has led historians to believe that some of these “added comforts” may not have been special to Capone, and that other inmates may have also had radios and other comforts.

While I realized I wouldn’t get to see the Museum of the American Revolution, I enjoyed what I did and don’t feel regret for having missed it, only that I paid for it. After Eastern State, I went back to pick up my sister and we went to Espresso Cafe & Sushi Bar for dinner.  I don’t know if it was the fact that it was 530p or that it was a Monday night in an out of town restaurant, but we were the only ones there. The food was good, but the service was a little slow, but not unbearable.

Overall I really enjoy my little trip. It was nice to have a little getaway and to experience as an adult all these places I had experienced as a child.

Quick Family Trip on a Dime (no pics) Disclaimer: this no-frills Trip Report is being written in one sitting with the express purpose to help out those looking for ideas on where to go and what to do with kids in tristate area that doesnt break the bank. Nothing fancy to see here so if you're not searching in this category, i'm sure the Maldives thread has something to offer...
Was looking for someplace to go away with the gang. Our needs were:
  • inexpensive
  • within two hour drive of monsey
  • minyan
  • entertainment for ages 2-12
After discarding several options we decided on Diggerland as the main attraction, and therefore just searched for closest Hyatt House which is where we usually go with the clan.
     Hyatt House Mt. Laurel had availability for my nights for a trio suite but not for points so i made a cash booking and later found agent to switch it to a points booking @ 8000 points a night, but at a minimum of three nights, so that's what i took. A trio suite gave us two closed bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. One bedroom has two double beds, with the other a king bed. The walk in closet was more than sufficient for a crib, and the pull out couch slept two comfortably so that we were all quite comfortable.
     I found tickets for Diggerland on Groupon for 29.95 for those 42" and above which is way cheaper than Diggerland's direct price. 36"-42" was same price as Diggerland, so didnt bother buying through them. 36" and below is free.
     As far as minyan, there are several options just several minutes away in Cherry Hill. We chose Sons of Israel since they had the latest minyan shachris at 8:00.  12 min from hotel
The trip from Monsey took just over two hours, and we quickly settled in for the night so that we could have an early start the next day since Diggerland's hours are 10-6.
After quick 15 minute ride we ended up arriving closer to one and were afraid we would be missing out, but as the weather peaked at about 94 degrees, the park was almost empty and we had just the right amount of time to spend there. Diggerland is awesome! Every kid had a grand time, according to his age and skill. There's something for everyone. It is a construction themed park, so that every ride consists of some tractor or truck retrofitted to suit the needs of the ride. There are tractors to ride and tractors to dig with and tractors to look at... you get the idea but there was truly plenty of variety to keep the kids going despite the weather. There's also a rock climbing wall and a ropes course in addition to a toddler play area. The only separate fee in the park is for the Soaring Eagle Zipling @ $6 a kid, and a gem mining station @ $6 a bag of gems. Officially there is no outside food allowed, but they had no issue with our bulging bags beneath the stroller, so we had plenty to eat just bought drinks every few minutes (3.75 for a coke bottle or 2.95 for a water) The Icee in the park is certified o-u so we tried cooling off with those. They also have misting fans in several areas, but they hardly accomplished much in this heat.
We left at six, got to hotel, ate dinner which was put up in crockpot in morn, played some games and called it a night.
The next morning we woke up to same weather and really wanted to do something water related but couldn't find anything within an hour's drive.
We decided on Johnson's Corner Farm (15 min from hotel) which is an amazing place with u-pick fruits and veggies, playground with splash pad, and animal farm. What we didn't realize is that when they advertise hayrides from 10-1 it means that after 1 there is no way to go picking since you need the hayride to get you out there. In any case we had a fabulous time and spent 3 hours there. There is a playground with very creative play equipment like spider web, huge Connect 4 playing boards, checkers tables, pretend areas, go karts, and the absolute best part which were the splash pads. In the sweltering heat the kids just kept converging there. There's the pail area which literally gets you a bucket of water on your head, some overhead sprinklers, inground sprinklers and the like. The entire play area is not that large it is just truly beautiful with tons of comfortable shaded seating, very clean and plenty of variety. The animal farm was not a petting zoo as we had hoped, but was fun nevertheless. There are sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, donkeys and cows. They provide corn with which to feed them, which you drop in to tubes and they come nibble.  Again, kids had awesome time with that. There's also a farmer's market on premises selling their produce as well as trinkets and the like. Admission was $9 a kid and $4.50 for those 13+. If you pay for hayride (i think 4.50) you get half price admission to the playground and animal farm. After 5 it's only 3 per kid, 1.50 per 13+. Wednesday evenings 5-9 feature free hayrides, pay what you pick.
From there we wanted to go to Laurel Acres Park for a grill, but upon arrival realized that there was some community event going on so we just left. We found Strawbridge Park down the road which suit us perfectly and was completely empty. There is a playground there that occupied the kids while we got the portable grill going. We also brought along a large kite for the bigger ones, and the large open field proved perfect for it.
Upon arrival back at the hotel, we realized that the pool was just about to close, and as we hadnt had a chance to use it yet since it was always full, decided to give it a try. Sure enough, just as we got there, there was some lightning and the pool miraculously cleared for us! We had a grand time, especially given that they came to close the pool half an hour after designated closing time.
All in all, this was a low key, totally kid friendly, tznius-sensitive, low-cost trip which created the family memories which will keep us smiling for a while.
Other kid-friendly options to do in the area (within half hour drive):
Adventure Aquarium (29.95 an adult includes one kid free)
Garden Discovery Museum ($5 admission after 5pm)
Philadelphia Mint (self-guided tour free)
Franklin Institute
Please Touch Museum
Independence Seaport Museum
(bunch of other Philadelphia museums, these are just the ones i looked in to)
Thanks for reading, and good luck with planning your own family trip!

Being a follower and not a leader is not how great companies are made. They have no choice to match unless they want to be left in others dust.
I'm happy to keep buying for @pfscoins even at $200 vs. $250.
Loyalty is a 2 way street and PFS has showed that to me time and time again.

Re: New Coin Deal So are people that committed to PFS and then backed out and presold on eBay for $500 now going to back out on that and sell for $1,000?

Re: New Coin Deal
Would be interesting to hear what this Dayan suggests that the buyer do next time in order to make the transaction hallachically binding. They can always wait until the buyer has the coin in hand, but then he's just buying it on the open marker. Maybe if the offer is for the coin, plus an small token item that most sellers already have in-hand (a quarter, napkin, writing utensil, etc...)
If they would give some money in advance I think that would bind with Mi Shepara.

Re: investments for children Wow. So many uninformed and outright wrong posts in this thread.

Advice #1, an anonymous online forum isn't the place to go for this.

From experience I can tell you that I put away money (at birth and monthly thereafter) in a top performing Mutual Fund when my oldest daughter was born, by the time she was 18 I needed to pull it out of there for a variety of reasons (qualifying for FAFSA being one of them) and I would have most definitely done better had I just put the money to grow at interest with no risk of loss.

I put money into Juvenile policies, but NOT for the purpose of saving money for the children (with the exception of the Allstate glitch from a few years ago).

She just keeps twisting the knife.

“He is impeached forever, no matter what he says or the headlines he wanted to carry around,” Mrs. Pelosi said in remarks to reporters on Thursday. She added that Mr. Trump was “never getting rid of that scar.”
Sounds like she cares more about the scar  than the country.

Re: Best Kosher Chinese food in the world!

Elizabeth Chinese... Gross stuff lol

New kosher special is great but the ambiance, if one can call it that, is probably what a physical manifestation of the Coronavirus would look like.

The Kosher Wok near Boston takes the cake wonton for the best Chinese, by a mile.

Too many scars to count here.

Re: When is this all expected to be over?
For you @CountValentine

It is said, “For this, let every pious man pray to You in the time of finding, that the overflowing waters may not reach him” (Psalms 32:6). With regard to the phrase, the time of finding, Rabbi Ḥanina said: The time of finding refers to the time one must find a wife, that one should pray to find a suitable woman to marry. As it is said: “He who finds [matza] a wife finds [matza] good and obtains favor from the Lord” (Proverbs 18:22). In Eretz Yisrael, the custom was that when a man married a woman, they would ask him: Matza or motzeh? In other words, they would ask the groom whether the appropriate passage for his wife is the above verse from Proverbs that begins with the word matza, as it is written: “He who finds a wife finds good and obtains favor from the Lord” or whether the more appropriate verse is the one beginning with the word motzeh, as it is written: “And I find [motzeh] the woman more bitter than death” (Ecclesiastes 7:26).

I'm assuming that CV is the pomin chadoshes at this here sheva brochos?

Master List of limited time opportunities created by the COVID-19 crisis I've already posted about NYS opening a special open enrollment period to sign up for Health Insurance in the individual marketplace.

Also eligibility for Medicaid, Essential Plan and Child Health Plus now use updated Federal Poverty Levels.

Some life insurance companies are underwriting up to certain amounts and ages WITHOUT A PHYSICAL EXAM. That doesn't mean that someone who has health issues gets better treatment, as they will use other background checks, but for those that fear or just dislike an exam this is a great opportunity.

I am able to help people with health and life insurance opportunities created.

Please post other opportunities you are aware of.

This is the answer. They just want to get the money out there already.

Re: Coronavirus Stimulus Aid Package
is it a credit against 2020 tax return?
If tax filers did not make 75k/150k last year but make more than 75k/150K in 2020 will they be required to return the cash next year?
Not the way I read it. You keep the cash.

Re: Life insurances waiving medical exam requirements
wow, so a young diabetic, smoker, or obese person, can hop on now?
A young diabetic is probably on medications. They will go to the medical records and likely find out everything else.

The lack of physical doesn’t mean that the underwriting decisions change, it just means different tools are used. You are expected to answer questions truthfully.

Re: When is this country going to be back to normal?
We will defeat it. It should give us new perspective.

Look at what it has already given us on a communal level.

This is from a list a friend posted on FB.
No need for lavish over the top weddings and simchos.
Endless and unnecessary shopping.
Rethink the need for Pesach Programs.
Rethink the need for over the top fine dining.
Seminary/Yeshiva in Israel.

I for one am looking forward to being able to marry off my kids at a way lower standard than I could have ever dreamed of.

I think it will change the way this country does business with and relies on foreign supply chains. It will awake the country to the dangers of diseases that we were never open to accepting. Almost everyone that I spoke to 3 weeks ago laughed it off. That has changed drastically and will live on in peoples psyche for a long time.
I don't see any of those things being long-term changes.

Re: Is there any good news in the fight against COVID-19?
Where's the post about the Nobel prize winner saying he would be surprised if they're over 10 deaths in Israel.

It's at 100+

What about the ones that predicted 5000 in severe conditions with 2000+ dead (in Israel)? The nobel peace guy is a hell of a lot closer. This has destroyed dozens of families in the frum world. But the hysteric people were predicting thousands of dead in the frum community. This is the good news thread, lets keep it that way

Re: Succos supplies affected?
Even if there aren't issues, it will be given as a reason for high prices...

Either way, that's too far from now to predict.

yea but everyone will get a basic set if shuls are still closed since no need to show off.
