In International news… the US is flexing it’s muscles as President Obama directs the military to increase activity aimed at disbanding and destroying the Islamic State (Terrorist Group). I would assume that campaign will be on going for several months or longer.
I had to chuckle at this tidbit of news in Germany where it’s about… timing
BERLIN — A gambler in Germany has been saved from prison by a one-armed bandit.
Police said Thursday that two officers carrying out routine checks at an arcade in the western city of Bochum late last week discovered that a man playing a slot machine faced an arrest warrant.
He had been ordered to pay a 710-euro ($910) fine or go to prison for 71 days after resisting police during a previous incident.
Police say that as officers informed the man that he faced arrest, the slot machine started to flash and the beaming 37-year-old won a jackpot of 1,000-euro (about $1,300).
The man paid his fine on the spot — in cash.
With the BitCoin… it seems there is a breakthrough with 2 Banks in New Jersey, USA, deciding to partner with Ripple Labs and slowly proceed to include International transactions with BitCoin. That could lead to bigger things down the road for BitCoin users. The first bank to do business with Ripple is Fidor, located in Germany.
As an owner of a “not so quiet at times” cockatiel named Fritzie (my buddy), I enjoyed the above quick flick … squawk!
Online, I continue with the risky business of investing in HYIPs looking for growth in my virtual money coffers, as I mentioned in my previous article. Virtual money where the money is held in accounts with Payment Processors and online Wallets until I move it to my Bank.
Meanwhile, I continue with my Investments in My Traffic Value. A very interesting program that continues to grow, produce and pay members. The Admin and his crew investigate and develop new revenue avenues. With 4 main investment plans and a “trade shares” opportunity, daily stats are sent out to members plus the daily Forum report about what’s happening currently and usually… what’s coming.
There are several ‘money games’ available with different avenues to enter using cash or BAP’s… Bonus Ad Points. I have seen some members win big with these but like all ventures online… patience is a requirement.
