2020.09.24 03:05 AutoModerator General Questions Thread, September 24, 2020

A thread for new collectors to ask basic questions of the community.
Frequently Asked Questions below!
A longer version of the subreddit rules is here.
For questions specifically concerning bootlegs or vendor legitimacy, please ask in the Bootleg Megathread.
NSFW & Spoiler Guidelines
  • For Self Posts: include a bolded NSFW note next to links in that post.
  • For Links to sites/images: If the figure is NSFW, or the website has any NSFW content (including ads) be sure to tag your post NSFW and use the appropriate link flair.
Bootlegs
Any collection posts containing bootlegs, comments advocating buying bootlegs, or links to sites selling bootlegs, recasts, or unlicensed merchandise will be removed.
People often ask about the legitimacy and/or safety of a number of websites which sell large resin statues. The more commonly-asked of those deal primarily in resins from studios which do not have a license from the Japanese IP holders to produce merchandise. Therefore links to those sites are not permitted here. Another sign is if MyFigureCollection doesn't list the either the statue, its manufacturer, or the shop it's being sold on.
MyFigureCollection
My Figure Collection is like MyAnimeList... but for figures! Their database includes thousands of items which been produced during the last couple of decades, along with reviews of shops and other helpful articles. One can also list their own collection and post gallery photos.

Buying & Shipping

1. What’s the best place to buy my anime figures from?
That’s going to depend a lot on what works for you, but most people around here buy them from Amiami, Big in Japan, Hobby Search, HobbyLink Japan, or Tokyo Otaku Mode. If none of those work for you for whatever reason, there’s a list of reputable retailers in the sidebar that you can check out at any time. Be extra careful when ordering figures from websites like Amazon or ebay, as there are a lot of bootlegs on those sites. Don’t be afraid to ask in our Bootleg Megathread if you’re unsure.
2. What differences are there between the shipping options I get from most Japanese shops?
Below is a rundown of the main shipping choices you’ll get at most retailers. Keep in mind that if an order is large enough you will be forced to use one of the more expensive options, as SAL shipments have lower size and weight restrictions.
  • Unregistered SAL: Sometimes referred to as uSAL, is usually the cheapest method. It does not come with any tracking or insurance. Usually takes up 2-4 weeks for delivery.
  • Registered SAL: Sometimes referred to as rSAL, is insured for the declared value up to 6,000 yen. It comes with a tracking number and usually takes 2-4 weeks for delivery.
  • EMS: This method of shipping is much faster than either SAL options, usually arriving within a week of shipment. EMS shipments are insured for the declared value up to 2,000,000 yen.
  • Airmail
  • E-packet
  • Surface: Shops don't offer this very often. It's an actual cargo ship and slow as a result.
  • DHL: Becoming more available as an alternative to EMS on AmiAmi and other sites. Can be less expensive than EMS and of comparable speed, but may be more reliant on the specific geographical area being shipped to. Offers their own tracking.
3. I placed two+ orders for figures at different times. Will my items be shipped together, or will I have to pay shipping twice?
Most shops will ask you to pay shipping on a per-order basis, but here are some that will allow combined shipping:
  • Amiami: You can combine orders here, as long as the orders ship in the same month. It doesn’t matter if the item is new or preowned. Any preorders that are set for that month can also be combined with other orders for that month. However, be aware that if the preorder gets delayed, Amiami will remove that item from that month’s shipment and place it on a new order. To combine orders on Amiami, use the “Combine Orders” feature under “My Account”.
  • Hobby Search: Hobby Search will let you combine orders that release in the same month, but you cannot combine in stock items with preorders. If you want to combine multiple preorders, or multiple in stock items, you can do so using the “Order Recombination” feature on your account page.
  • HobbyLink Japan: At HLJ, you have the option to send paid orders to their “Private Warehouse”, where you can store them for up to 2 months. When you’re ready to ship the items, you simply select which items to ship and HLJ will combine them into one shipment for you. To use this, just select the “Private Warehouse” option as shipping when you order.
  • GSC Web Shop: Here you’ll pay a flat 2,000 yen fee per order. It doesn’t matter how many items you put in your order, or how many different months the items release in. They will charge you 2,000 yen and ship all items as they release. The exception to this rule is their Wonder Festival exclusive items. Those can only be placed in the same order as other Wonder Festival items.
If you’re unsure about whether or not a shop we haven’t listed will combine your orders, please refer to their individual FAQ’s.
4. When will I get charged for my preorder?
Most Japanese shops charge you once the item is in stock and ready for shipment. When that happens, they will send you an email asking for payment. Some shops (mostly overseas ones), will allow you to pay for the item up front though, if you’d like. A few with that option are:
  • Big in Japan (Japanese store)
  • Tokyo Otaku Mode
  • Anime Island
  • Crunchyroll
Keep in mind that overseas stores will likely get the figure a few months after Japanese ones, so pay attention to the release date stated on the website you are buying from so as to avoid that confusion.
5. Should I expect to pay customs fees when importing figures?
That depends on where you live. Here’s a quick rundown:
  • Australia: 10% GST is now assessed up front.
  • Canada: Minimum declared value for charges is around CAD$20 for regular shipments, and CAD$60 for gifts (gifting something only seems to lower the declared value by about CAD$40, not deplete it completely). When using Amiami, try their Small Air Packet option. It comes with tracking, gets there in about the same time as EMS, and is better at avoiding customs.
  • Europe: Using EMS raises your chance of getting charged for customs. SAL can still avoid customs in some countries, but generally gets checked in the UK now if the items are above the threshold. Amiami offers a shipping service called “Small Air Packet” that is really good for avoiding customs when you are only shipping one or two figures. Small Air Packet usually takes about the same amount of time as EMS, and still comes with tracking.The minimum declared value for customs charges in the Europe is pretty low- around £15 (£36 for gifts) / €20.
  • Mexico: Minimum declared value for customs fees is USD$300 for shipments by post, and USD$50 for shipments by courier.
  • United States: A shipment has to have a declared value of USD$2,000 before customs starts hitting you with fees, so you most likely won’t have to worry about them at all.
6. The figure I want is an exclusive, how do I go about ordering one outside of Japan?
You have three options for this:
A. Big in Japan is known to stock exclusive figures and ship to other countries. Usually the price is higher because they build in their proxy fees, but it’s easier than worrying about using a forwarder or proxy service. If you live in the US, Crunchyroll, Right Stuf, and Tokyo Otaku Mode also get exclusives sometimes, but out of the states the shipping can get expensive.
B. Forwarding Services: A forwarder is someone who you ship an exclusive item to so that they can forward the package on to you, usually for a flat fee + shipping. When using a forwarder you still make the purchase yourself, and enter their address into the shipping field. When the box arrives at the forwarder they will then stick your address onto the package and send it on its way.
Some popular forwarders are:
Be sure to read each sites instructions on forwarding carefully!
C. Proxy Services: With a proxy, you tell them what the item you’re looking for is and they will purchase it in your stead. This is handy for when a company doesn’t accept foreign credit cards, or you’re having trouble navigating a Japanese website.
Some popular proxies are:
Again, be sure you thoroughly read through each sites proxy instructions.
7. I see a bunch of really cheap figures that ship from China on ebay. Are those okay to buy?
Generally, no. They’re most likely bootlegs. If you want a second opinion on that, feel free to ask in the Bootleg Megathread that’s always stickied at the top of the sub.
8. What’s a bootleg, and how can I avoid buying them?
A bootleg is a counterfeit figure often made using rejected molds of the official product. They are usually priced significantly lower than the genuine article, and in order to make their profit, bootleggers use lower quality materials and have less attention to detail- resulting in a substandard figure.
The Bootleg Megathread that I mentioned in question 7 is a great tool to avoid buying any bootlegs. It has a few tips and tricks to avoiding them to begin with, and a few more on how to spot them if you’re worried you might already own one.
9. Does anyone know when figure X is going to be released? How do I know if it was delayed?
My Figure Collection (sometimes referred to as MFC) does an excellent job of staying on top of information like release dates and delays. If you’re curious about an upcoming figures release date, check there first. This information can be found directly under the “Releases” section on a figure’s entry. If you only see a month and a year in that section, it means the release date has not yet been announced by the manufacturer, and there is still a chance the figure could be delayed.
If you make an account on MFC you can also subscribe to comments, changes, and pictures via a checkbox on the right hand side of a figure’s listing. Subscribing to any of these things will allow MFC to send you an email anytime the subscription in question updates. Subscribing to “changes” is a great way to keep up with release dates and delays, among other things.
10. The figure I want is long sold out at normal retailers! What’s the best place to pick it up in the aftermarket?
A list of reputable retailers can be found under the “Shops” section of the /AnimeFigures sidebar. They all sell legitimate products, and many of them also sell figures second hand. However, the most frequently suggested second hand sites are Mandarake and Amiami- who has a preowned section that they update every night save Sundays and Japanese holidays around 1PM JST and again around 6PM JST.
AmiAmi grades their pre-owned items on a letter scale. The general consensus from buyers is that their ratings are conservative, so unless the item and/or packaging is specifically indicated as having significant flaws, pre-owned items from them are usually in at least as good a condition as their rating suggests.
Note: When you search Mandarake, you’ll get the best results by using the Japanese characters for whatever you are searching. If you don’t know them, you can find them on MFC by clicking on any of the “details” in that figure’s listing.
11. Amiami has a figure I’m interested in labeled as “For sale in Japan only”. Does this mean I can’t order it without a proxy or forwarder?
No, you can still order it. Amiami’s English site has that warning on many items, and it’s mostly meant to inform you that this product was made for a Japanese market, and as such, will have Japanese speaking/writing in it- so don’t expect any instructions to be in English. If Amiami doesn’t want foreigners buying a certain product, they won’t even list it on their English site.

Displaying Your Figures

12. What display cases do you recommend?
If you live near an Ikea try out one of these:
*If you decided on a Detolf, you might find that there is a lot of wasted space. Here are a few tutorials on raising the shelves or and adding extra ones in.
If you don’t live near an Ikea, Amazon has a few display options, though they are more expensive. Also keep an eye on your local Craigslist (or your country’s equivalent) and stores near you that are closing up.
13. What lighting do you guys recommend?
Ikea’s Dioder LED strips are often suggested. They come in white or muti-colored.
Most hardware stores carry something similar though, if you don’t live by an Ikea. Just make sure that the lights don’t get too hot!
14. What are those clear plastic boxes that I see under everyone’s figures in their collection posts, and where can I get them?
Those are called risers. Most of us use standard acrylic risers like these. Some other, easy to find things that have been suggested are:
Check your local hobby store for the first 2 options, or your local hardware store if you want to make your own.
Another common suggestion is to visit The Container Store if you have one near you. They have a lot of things to choose from that can suit a variety of needs. Be sure to check out their standard acrylic risers, their Amac boxes, and the various display cases they sell (baseball cases, mini car cases. hockey puck cases, etc).
15. Should I keep my figures sealed?
That is, of course, up to you really, but here are a few things to keep in mind when debating this question:
  • Keeping it sealed can actually damage your figure. PVC figures usually have something called plasticizer in them, and that plasticizer needs to be able to breath. If a PVC figure isn’t exposed to oxygen, after a period of time the plasticizer starts to break down and form a sticky substance on the surface of the figure. Simply opening your figures and taking them out of the box prevents this from happening. If you happen to find plasticizer goo on one of your figures, Kahotan has a handy guide for dealing with it.
  • Unlike some other figure markets, keeping an anime figure sealed won’t raise its value by a whole lot. In fact, because of the plasticizer problem mentioned above, your figure could actually be in better condition if you open it versus keeping it sealed.

Finding the Right Figure(s) for You

16. There are so many figure companies! Who makes good figures?!
Obviously this is a very subjective question, but as a general starting point, here are a few well renowned figure companies:
  • Alter
  • Max Factory
  • Good Smile Company
  • Kotobukiya (usually hit or miss for people. Use your best judgement based off of the prototype)
  • Aquamarine
  • Flare
  • Stronger
17. I really love “series X / character X”- how can I check if any figures were ever made for it?
My Figure Collection can be your best friend here. Simply do a search on the name of the series or character using the search bar located at the top right of the screen, and all associated figures pop up!
Alternatively, if you’re looking at a figure’s MFC entry, most of the text under the “Details” section can be clicked on and used to run a search.
18. How can I commission a custom figure?
None of the major figure companies (Alter, Kotobukiya, Good Smile Company, etc.) will take a commission for a single figure. This thread has a few websites in it that you can check out, or you can look into garage kits. Some kit painters would be willing to resculpt, frankenstein together, or otherwise modify kits for the right price.
If you're looking for help completing a garage kit, /brushforhire may be useful.

Keeping Up with New Announcements

19. How can I keep up with figure news (announcements, updates, etc.)?
Most people use a MFC combined with any or all of the following news sites:
To use MFC for this I’ll quote question #9.
If you make an account on MFC you can also subscribe to comments, changes, and pictures via a checkbox on the right hand side of a figure’s listing. Subscribing to any of these things will allow MFC to send you an email anytime the subscription in question updates. Subscribing to “changes” is a great way to keep up with release dates and delays, among other things.
Most companies have one or more Twitter accounts. Some examples: Good Smile Company sales, Good Smile's USA branch, Max Factory, AmiAmi Hobby News.
20. Everyone’s excited about something called Wonfes….. what the heck is that?!
WonFes (short for Wonder Festival) is a biannual figure expo where many figure producers (both large and small) show off new sculpts and updates to figures already under way. Most companies save their most exciting announcements for WonFes, so we all look forward to the expo whenever it rolls around! Winter Wonder Festival is usually held in February, while Summer Wonder Festival is usually in July. The event has also spread to Shanghai, in the late spring.
21. One or two (or 15) figures were announced at WonFes that I’m really excited about! How can I keep track of their progress once the event is over?
MFC is always really quick about getting new WonFes announcements (or any others throughout the year, for that matter) listed in their database, so we suggest using that. To find a figure from the event you can search any number of things, including the name of the character or the name of the show. You can also use the tag search to search “WonderFestival 20xx_[season]” to see all items announced at that event.

2020.09.23 17:43 jango-b A Completionist Guide to Yes Live: Part Four, Rite of Spring through The Royal Affair

The final entry in my collection of Yes live, a list of most songs from every tour, and the best quality recordings I could find of each. See part three here.
Yes toured a ton in this decade (over 450 shows plus ARW), some setlists are repetitive, and most tours that were not officially released are audience recordings.
YES TOURS PART FOUR: 2011 - 2019
RITE OF SPRING (2011) David, Squire, Howe, Downes, White
This tour was short (19 shows) and I could not find a single soundboard. I got the best audience recordings, but none are great.
Close to the Edge, I’ve Seen All Good People, Long Distance Runaround, Whitefish/On the Silent Wings of Freedom, Machine Messiah, Owner of a Lonely Heart, Parallels, Roundabout, Starship Trooper, Tempus Fugit, Yours is No Disgrace, and Steve solos of Soon, To Be Over, and Ritual; Zeiterion Performing Arts Center (March 29, 2011, New Bedford MA).

2020.09.23 12:52 stapler808 VBA pulling data from yahoo finance - update VBA to update existing sheet

VBA newbie here. Would like to edit the VBA so it will update/refresh the data in an existing sheet instead of updating the 'Data' sheet. (Ex. AAPL data should be updated to the 'AAPL') sheet. Would be great if is just an update/refresh in a defined range in the sheet to allow for other formulas to run.

InMed Pharmaceuticals Announces Additional IntegraSyn™ Patent Filing

InMed announced the filing of a patent application as part of a growing portfolio of intellectual property related to the IntegraSyn™ manufacturing approach for producing low-cost, pharmaceutical-grade cannabinoids.
The patent, entitled "Compositions and Methods for Aromatic Prenylation", describes a novel enzyme used to overcome one of the more significant challenges of producing cannabinoids at a high yield.
Cannabinoids, including their rare forms, are complex molecules that require specific modification and assembly, through multiple steps, to generate the correct, final chemical structure. To date, attempts by industry and researchers to produce pharmaceutical-grade cannabinoids by reproducing this precise biological process outside of the natural plant, at low cost and large scale, have been challenging using available biosynthesis or chemical synthesis methodologies.
By engineering variants of the bacterium E. coli, our scientists, working with Almac Group, have developed a proprietary enzyme that can efficiently assemble the primary gateway cannabinoid cannabigerolic acid ("CBGA"). CBGA can be subsequently modified through several pathways to manufacture a number of naturally occurring cannabinoids.
In plants, synthesis of CBGA is the most dominant pathway resulting in high quantities of the down-stream cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. This proprietary enzyme fits directly into, and plays an integral part of, the Company's IntegraSynTM manufacturing approach.

2020.09.21 22:15 Callistocalypso Elon’s game is tweets and batteries

Ok shitstains - don’t say your Daddy never gave you nothing. I gave you life and now I give you the decoded meaning of Elon’s tweets. I’ve got something for the bulls and the gay bears just to be inclusive so put your face mask on turn out the lights and grab the lube because here we go...
TLDR at bottom
Elon loves to tweet and some stupid fucks have attempted to decode them but none of those motherfuckers are as autistic as me. Elon likes to play games as he is the master of games (as per his love for Ian Banks and the culture series look it up, too much addtl info so let’s move on).
It’s battery day you idiots. Everyone keeps trying to rearrange the numbers but did you compare the time stamps to the periodic table of elements? Batteries are chemistry you douchebags like the REAL chemistry your wives have with their boyfriends.
Elon made a magnesium phosphate battery with rhodium oxide and titanium flouride. He gangbanged some hot Japanese prostitutes over at Mitsubishi Chemical Corp and now their baby is a high density high performance battery. How exactly? go ask Walter White - I’m the real Heisenberg and I ain’t gonna explain shit to you other than what to buy so -
https://au.finance.yahoo.com/news/mitsubishi-chemical-developed-electrolyte-tesla-011300590.html
FIRST TWEET 9/11 at 8:45 AM Many exciting things will be unveiled on battery day 9/22
Element 8 element 45 = Rhodium Oxide Super hydrogenator keeps oxidation away from the film surface of a battery. Thus enabling a million mile battery.
https://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlelanding/2018/dt/c8dt03217c#!divAbstract
SECOND TWEET 9/17 at 12:15 AM Speed running factorio in real life ...
12 15 magnesium phosphate
Referencing factorio - a video game where the goal is to mine resources to build rockets and get off the planet. Look it up, you think this billionaire was actually playing videos games at midnight and thought the world needed to know?
What’s a mag phosphate - look it up, I may be your dad but I’m definitely not your mommy who coddled you... it’s a better battery solution ok? Ugh
https://newscenter.lbl.gov/2017/10/19/solving-magnesium-mystery-rechargeable-battery-performance/
THIRD TWEET 9/18 at 9:22 AM Of course I still love you
9 hours after playing his video game Elon decides to tweet out the name of his favorite SpaceX drone ship. Why?
9 22 Titanium Flourides
No I didn’t say Flo Rida I said FLOURIDE like the pediatric dentist used to put in your mouth from the tip of his dick.
Why? again, super hydrogenator allows batteries to actually fucking work. Maybe he announces the drone has been running on these batteries or, it’s a hint that power density is high enough to enable flight IDK.
https://www.eenewspower.com/news/titanium-potassium-ion-battery-cathode-has-high-potential
https://www.greencarcongress.com/2020/04/20200406-skoltech.html
Soooooo what do we do?
Calls on TSLA as they just killed the combustion engine.
Puts on all other combustion carmakers for you gay bears. You’re welcome for the scraps.
TLDR - Calls on TSLA any strike any date doesn’t matter cuz the world is changing. If you want to get fabulous because you’re a gay bear Puts on any combustion engine makers F, GM blah blah blah
I’m out - next time you hear from me will be $5 in a birthday card every other year. Tell your mom and your wife I said hi.
EDIT: removed MTLHY Mitsubishi Chemical Corp because I don’t think that’s the real play.

2020.09.21 12:07 JamesDev558 The 10 most Interesting and funny facts about Google

Google, a search engine launched in 1997 by two Stanford students: Larry Page and Sergy Brin. For two years, these students had worked on an advanced method for finding information on the Internet. Since the creation of Google, the company is already worth $ 400 billion! This makes Google one of the most valuable brands in the world. Google has also developed much further than just a search engine. Today you can navigate, mail, watch videos, upload your own videos, read the news, translate other languages and much more. Google is with 3.5 billion searches a day, the most popular search engine in the world. We’ve collected the 10 most interesting and funny facts about Google!

The most interesting facts about Google

· Google has the largest index of websites in the world.
Google has a index with more than 3 billion websites. When this index would be printed, you’d get a 130 miles high stack of paper. Google searches through all these websites in less than half a second. This also shows the importance of SEO, you’re audience will have too find you’re website between this large index of sites.
· The original name of Google was Backrub.
Later, the company wanted to change their name, that’s how the name:Google was born. After all, Google is a misspelling of the word: Googel, the mathematical term for a one with hundred zeros. This name would reflect the company’s mission to make all information accessible too the world. That worked out pretty well, don’t you think?
· The Google search technology is called PageRank.
PageRank assigns a value of relevance to every website and determines how important a website is. PageRank is named after the co-founder of Google: Larry Page. SEO ensures you that your website will be considered as important by Google. If you’re website is considered (more) important by Google, you’re website will be higher in the rankings. Nobody on the outside knows exactly how PageRank works, which makes it quite hard to manipulate this system. This is probably the key to success, because this makes that you’ll always get the best results for you!
· On August 16, 2013, Google was not reachable for 5 minutes, in that time the global Internet usage was decreased by 40%.
This fact shows how important Google is today. When people can not search for the website that they are looking for, people make less use of the internet.
· Google wanted in 1997 to sell their search engine system to Yahoo for $ 2 million.
Yahoo didn’t accept this offer. Later, Yahoo wanted to come back to this offer and offered 3 billion in 2002. This time Google didn’t accept the offer. Today Yahoo is much less valuable as Google. I bet they feel pretty stupid right now!
· The first tweet from Google was: “I’m feeling lucky” in binary code.
Today, Google has 12.2 million followers on Twitter. If you want to stay up-to-date of all the developments in the search engine, you should follow them!
· 16% to 20% of all searches have never been searched before on Google.
This means that Google gets millions of searches every day that have never been done before. SEO systems have to keep themselves informed of these new developments in order to remain up-to-date.
· The Google homepage is available in 80 languages.
Because Google offers its search engine in many languages, Google is used around the world. Google translate is also available in all these 80 languages. The last nine languages that have been added are: Hausa, Igbo, Yoruba, Somali, Zulu, Mongolian, Nepali, Punjabi, and Maori.
· In 2014 was 89% of Google’s revenue from Google advertising.
Google currently earns the most out of SEA (Search Engine Advertising), companies can pay to stand at the top of the search results in the advertising section. SEO will get you higher in the organic results of Google. Research has shown that search engine users go rather to websites at the top of the organic results.
· 33% of all searches on Google come from smartphone
It is therefore increasingly important that websites are well represented by smartphones. This year on April 21st Google officially introduced their new algorithm that measured mobile usability, which means that if you think about the smartphone usability, you’ll be higher in the Google rankings.
· Google is derived from the word Googol
Googol is a very large number. Its a 1 with 100 zero’s.
· Google has about 90% of worldwide market share
· On September 15, 1997 the domain Google.com was registered
And Google has registered a lot of domains after that. Besides the Google domain, it has also registered all kinds of misspellings of course 🙂

2020.09.21 11:18 emailout How To: Email Authentication – SPF, DKIM, DMARC and BIMI

How To: Email Authentication – SPF, DKIM, DMARC and BIMI

Do you know how to prevent your emails from being spoofed, improve your email deliverability and ensure that people who signed up to your email lists continue to receive your marketing emails?

If you are using your domain name to send emails then email authentication is crucial to your email deliverability. It’s like the digital signature for your domain designed to protect your brand’s identity, content and reputation.

“If you spend more time on making your coffee than on securing your email communications, you’ll be hacked.” – EmailOut
Email authentication is an unnerving subject. More often than not, as an email marketer, you’ll come across an alphabet soup of different abbreviations and acronyms that will make your head spin. With the increasing number of spam and phishing emails, implementing email authentication has become essential. As daunting as the topic might be, the basic concepts are not as complex as one might think. Do you know which are the top email authentication methods that will help you ensure the security of your email marketing messages?

In this article, we’ll cover the following topics on email authentication:

  1. What is email authentication?
  2. How does it work?
  3. Email authentication methods
  4. How to set up your email authentication in EmailOut?
Ready to dive in?
The foundation of successful email marketing is for email campaigns to reach the subscribers’ inbox. You can devote hours upon hours on crafting the most highly-personalised, perfectly designed email campaign but… how will your subscribers see it if it ends up in the spam folder?
Most email providers (like Gmail, Yahoo!, Outlook, etc.) are always on the lookout for ways to make sure the emails they deliver to the users’ inbox are relevant and secure. However, with the increased distribution of unsolicited and harmful phishing emails, email servers have placed numerous security protocols to help verify the authenticity of an email message, and it’s sender, before it reaches the intended recipient. If the email does not pass the required email authentication process, it’s highly likely your email campaign will experience deliverability issues like ending in the spam folder or not being delivered at all.
To prevent your marketing emails from going to spam, you need to follow four essential email deliverability best practice –
1) only email people who’ve asked you to; 2) ensure your content is relevant, well-designed, engaging and avoid spam words/phrases (for example, free, best, download now, etc.); 3) never send emails with hard-to-read or unexpected content; and 4) don’t bombard your subscribers with tons of email campaigns or send so infrequently that they forget about you.

Five factors can have an impact on your email deliverability (aside from not having email authentication) –

a) spam complaints – when a recipient marks your email as ‘spam’; b) bounces – when an email address is invalid or doesn’t even exist; c) spam traps – email addresses created for the sole purpose of catching fraudulent emails; d) IP address reputation – it measures the reputation of your IP address based on the quality and type of the emails you’re sending; and e) domain reputation – it measures the reputation of your email address based on the quality and type of emails you’re sending.
With these factors and best practice covered, you need to move your focus on how to improve your emails’ performance. Cue, implementing email authentication. But, before I give you details on the four main email authentication methods, let’s first find out what email authentication is and how it works.

The Nature Of Email Authentication

In technical terms, email authentication is a process that helps identify the sending source (for example, sending domain or IP) of an email so that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can route the email accordingly.
Simply put, email authentication is a process set to help you, the sender, prove you are who you say you are (not that [email protected] D0e from M1cr0s0ft urgently requesting users to update credit card details) and that the email you’re sending is not forged/spoofed. In other words, email authentication allows email marketing tools to send emails on your behalf AND as your domain.
Every email you send to a recipient gets processed by the recipient’s email client incoming server. It gets analysed and based on your email authentication method, it either passes or fails the authentication process. Once the email server has this information, it will determine if your email should be delivered to the recipient’s inbox (pass), flagged as spam (fail) or completely disregarded from the server (fail-filtered). If you have no email authentication in place, the chances of your email being considered as spam and rejected are very high which will subsequently lead to decreased email deliverability.

The Way Email Authentication Works

Email marketers can approach email authentication in several different ways. However, as much as the implementation of each approach comes with its specific technicalities, this is how the general email authentication process works –
1) the sender establishes a policy defining the rules by which emails from their domain name can be authenticated; 2) the sender configures its email servers to implement and publish the rules; 3) the email server receiving the email authenticates the message by verifying the details of the incoming email against the rules defined by the domain owner; and 4) the receiving email server takes action based on the results from the authentication process to either deliver, flag as spam or disregard the email.
When the receiving email server gets your message it looks for specific information in your email and the Domain Name System (DNS) records of your domain to determine the legitimacy and security of your message and whether it is safe for the recipient to receive, and, consequently, if the email came from an authorised source.
It is important to note that even if you’ve set up one or more email authentication methods but they failed the authentication process, your email can still end up being flagged as spam or rejected by the mail servers. Hence, rather than quickly setting up only one email authentication method, ensure you have multiple email authentication methods in place and regularly monitor the effect they have on your emails and your deliverability.

Email Authentication Methods

To set up an email authentication method, you have to create a few DNS records (or upload a file) to your domain hosting provider using the information rendered by your email marketing platform.
Beyond just looking at the sender’s email address, there are four email authentication methods (or standards) ISPs use that email marketers can take advantage of to ensure their emails will not end up in the spam folder or be rejected by the mail servers.

Sender Policy Framework (SPF)

Sender Policy Framework or SPF is an email authentication method whose purpose is to detect falsification of the sender address (return-path header) during the delivery of the email. It’s a DNS record that specifies which IP addresses and/or servers are allowed to send email communications from that particular domain.
https://preview.redd.it/nweii34jxgo51.png?width=508&format=png&auto=webp&s=2b030d988a6ded4892514c0614d06cf6b6d3cc8b
When implementing SPF, always keep in mind that each domain can have a maximum of only one SPF record.
When an SPF record is checked, there are five possible results –
a) None – no SPF record exists; b) Neutral – an SPF record was found. Yet, neither a positive nor negative assertion was made about the sender; c) Pass – the sender is authorised to send email communications on behalf of the domain; d) Fail – the sender is not authorised and the mail server may disregard the email; e) Soft fail – the sender is not authorised but the mail server may not disregard the email only based on this.
The disadvantage of SPF email authentication is that this method alone cannot authenticate the original author of the email. Instead, it authenticates only the source of it (return-path). The best course of action to prevent email spoofing is to combine SPF with DMARC and DKIM.

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM)

DomainKeys Identified Mail or DKIM is an email authentication method focused on detecting fake/fraudulent sender addresses in emails (email spoofing). Just like an SPF record, DKIM is a TXT record added to a domain’s DNS. It allows the email’s recipient to check if the email message has been indeed authorised by the owner of the domain.
https://preview.redd.it/q78uub8kxgo51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=479283ba7dbd17aded550d9027385c3ce056c992
This email authentication method is done by adding a digital signature linked to a specific domain name to each outgoing email and affixed to the email as a header. By checking the sender’s public key published in the DNS, the email can be verified.
Unlike SPF, DKIM uses an encryption algorithm to create a pair of electronic keys – public and private. The public key is placed in the DNS record, whilst the private key remains on the servers it was created on (i.e. your mail server).
To implement DKIM, you are required to update your DNS – just like with SPF. However, it’s a bit more involved than setting up SPF since you’ll need to –
1) choose a DKIM selector – it can be anything – word, number or a combination of both (see an example below, the selector is highlighted);
DKIM-Signature: v=1; a=rsa-sha256; d=example.net; s=brisbane; c=relaxed/simple; q=dns/txt; t=1117574938; x=1118006938; h=from:to:subject:date:keywords:keywords; bh=MTIzNDU2Nzg5MDEyMzQ1Njc4OTAxMjM0NTY3ODkwMTI=; b=dzdVyOfAKCdLXdJOc9G2q8LoXSlEniSbav+yuU4zGeeruD00lszZ VoG4ZHRNiYzR
2) generate both public and private keys; 3) publish your selector and public key; and 4) attach the token to each one of your outgoing emails.
This tool can be particularly useful for generating a DKIM public and private key.

Domain Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance (DMARC)

Domain Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance or DMARC is an email authentication method focused on handling the problem of email spoofing by protecting both the sender and the recipient. Your DMARC record instructs the receiving server not to accept an email if it fails DKIM and SPF checks.
https://preview.redd.it/tn7i8wklxgo51.png?width=768&format=png&auto=webp&s=d6fc7ad1471f5fde1d41289a9a35a44843e1e288
Is DMARC enough for email authentication? On its own – no. DMARC needs SPF to work.
What is DMARC authentication and how does it work? >>>

Brand Indicators for Message Identification (BIMI)

Brand Indicators for Message Identification or BIMI is an open standard allowing businesses to verify their identity and be easily recognised in recipients’ inboxes. Similar to SPF, DKIM and DMARC, BIMI is a text record which lives on your servers. It works alongside all the other three authentication methods to show email clients you are you. Some even call this email authentication method DMARC 2.0.
https://preview.redd.it/u031j8nmxgo51.png?width=768&format=png&auto=webp&s=5bb9709ebcdb3b6a627017af2ed746d9f45be92b
What differentiates BIMI from the other three methods is that it allows businesses to display their logo in supported inboxes.
For more information about the BIMI standard click here.

Email Authentication Methods Review

1) SPF – to authenticate the sender’s identity this standard performs a check similar to verifying a return address. Simply put, the sender can define which IP addresses are allowed to send an email for a particular domain;
2) DKIM – this standard is also used to authenticate the sender’s identity, however, it looks beyond just the sender’s email address to ensure the content of the email is not altered by utilising an encryption key and digital signature which verify the email is authentic and not spoofed;
3) DMARC – think of this standard as a courier. It ensures emails meet SPF and DKIM requirements before they are even delivered; and
4) BIMI – this standard focuses on improving the sender’s credibility and legitimacy by displaying the sender’s logo in the inbox next to the email. If a brand has set up a BIMI record, once the receiving email servers receive the email it’ll run the usual DNS checks for the sender domain and if a BIMI record is found, it’ll ‘fetch it’ and show it.

Setting Up Email Authentication In EmailOut

By updating your Domain Name System (DNS) settings, you will benefit from DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM), Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and Domain Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) authentication.
Before you even begin with EmailOut’s DNS settings set up, make sure the email address you plan to send from is set up correctly. (N.B. EmailOut allows users to add as many ‘alternative email addresses’ as they’d like.)
Your next step is to access the dedicated DNS tool. There you will see three CNAME records that you’ll need to update your DNS settings –
https://preview.redd.it/3m92dy3oxgo51.png?width=618&format=png&auto=webp&s=67e00b56206bf4f9ae6d2acedcfd4faeaf967137
With these CNAME records at hand, head to your hosting service provider and search for a feature called ‘Manage DNS’ (or something similar), select your domain, then ‘Add New’ record and set the ‘Type’ to CNAME and ‘TTL’ to default. Afterwards, enter one record at a time like the example below:
https://preview.redd.it/kan5ewcpxgo51.png?width=597&format=png&auto=webp&s=b93266db80dbe930e2a10cc4b0bb8c1265f1da3d
If the DNS set up is successful, EmailOut’s DNS tool will have three green status ticks –
https://preview.redd.it/esd9bjaqxgo51.png?width=956&format=png&auto=webp&s=65aad69ba31c78ba49170c69ffbe7a4bba81c799
How long will the DNS set up take? The TTL (Time-To-Live) determines the time the records will take to propagate. This will vary for each domain hosting provider and may display as ‘1 Hour’ or ‘3600 seconds’ for example. Most providers will tell you it can take up to 48 hours but it’s usually a lot faster than this. The average time is 2 hours.

Final Thoughts

Email authentication is like a digital ID. It protects your brand’s integrity, identity and reputation. Implementing the proper email authentications methods like SPF, DKIM, DMARC and BIMI, will help you improve your email deliverability, email engagement and also, reassure your subscribers that you are who you say you are. Thus, creating a trusting relationship between you and the recipient.
To ensure everything with your email authentication is going smoothly, I recommend keeping an eye on email security metrics such as bounce and deliverability rates. If you notice a spike in bounces and a decrease in email deliverability, there might be something wrong with your email authentication. Ah, and remember, it’s always better to have more than one email authentication method in place.

How To: Email Authentication – SPF, DKIM, DMARC and BIMI

Do you know how to prevent your emails from being spoofed, improve your email deliverability and ensure that people who signed up to your email lists continue to receive your marketing emails?

If you are using your domain name to send emails then email authentication is crucial to your email deliverability. It’s like the digital signature for your domain designed to protect your brand’s identity, content and reputation.

“If you spend more time on making your coffee than on securing your email communications, you’ll be hacked.” – EmailOut
Email authentication is an unnerving subject. More often than not, as an email marketer, you’ll come across an alphabet soup of different abbreviations and acronyms that will make your head spin. With the increasing number of spam and phishing emails, implementing email authentication has become essential. As daunting as the topic might be, the basic concepts are not as complex as one might think. Do you know which are the top email authentication methods that will help you ensure the security of your email marketing messages?

In this article, we’ll cover the following topics on email authentication:

  1. What is email authentication?
  2. How does it work?
  3. Email authentication methods
  4. How to set up your email authentication in EmailOut?
Ready to dive in?
The foundation of successful email marketing is for email campaigns to reach the subscribers’ inbox. You can devote hours upon hours on crafting the most highly-personalised, perfectly designed email campaign but… how will your subscribers see it if it ends up in the spam folder?
Most email providers (like Gmail, Yahoo!, Outlook, etc.) are always on the lookout for ways to make sure the emails they deliver to the users’ inbox are relevant and secure. However, with the increased distribution of unsolicited and harmful phishing emails, email servers have placed numerous security protocols to help verify the authenticity of an email message, and it’s sender, before it reaches the intended recipient. If the email does not pass the required email authentication process, it’s highly likely your email campaign will experience deliverability issues like ending in the spam folder or not being delivered at all.
To prevent your marketing emails from going to spam, you need to follow four essential email deliverability best practice –
1) only email people who’ve asked you to; 2) ensure your content is relevant, well-designed, engaging and avoid spam words/phrases (for example, free, best, download now, etc.); 3) never send emails with hard-to-read or unexpected content; and 4) don’t bombard your subscribers with tons of email campaigns or send so infrequently that they forget about you.

Five factors can have an impact on your email deliverability (aside from not having email authentication) –

a) spam complaints – when a recipient marks your email as ‘spam’; b) bounces – when an email address is invalid or doesn’t even exist; c) spam traps – email addresses created for the sole purpose of catching fraudulent emails; d) IP address reputation – it measures the reputation of your IP address based on the quality and type of the emails you’re sending; and e) domain reputation – it measures the reputation of your email address based on the quality and type of emails you’re sending.
With these factors and best practice covered, you need to move your focus on how to improve your emails’ performance. Cue, implementing email authentication. But, before I give you details on the four main email authentication methods, let’s first find out what email authentication is and how it works.

The Nature Of Email Authentication

In technical terms, email authentication is a process that helps identify the sending source (for example, sending domain or IP) of an email so that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can route the email accordingly.
Simply put, email authentication is a process set to help you, the sender, prove you are who you say you are (not that [email protected] D0e from M1cr0s0ft urgently requesting users to update credit card details) and that the email you’re sending is not forged/spoofed. In other words, email authentication allows email marketing tools to send emails on your behalf AND as your domain.
Every email you send to a recipient gets processed by the recipient’s email client incoming server. It gets analysed and based on your email authentication method, it either passes or fails the authentication process. Once the email server has this information, it will determine if your email should be delivered to the recipient’s inbox (pass), flagged as spam (fail) or completely disregarded from the server (fail-filtered). If you have no email authentication in place, the chances of your email being considered as spam and rejected are very high which will subsequently lead to decreased email deliverability.

The Way Email Authentication Works

Email marketers can approach email authentication in several different ways. However, as much as the implementation of each approach comes with its specific technicalities, this is how the general email authentication process works –
1) the sender establishes a policy defining the rules by which emails from their domain name can be authenticated; 2) the sender configures its email servers to implement and publish the rules; 3) the email server receiving the email authenticates the message by verifying the details of the incoming email against the rules defined by the domain owner; and 4) the receiving email server takes action based on the results from the authentication process to either deliver, flag as spam or disregard the email.
When the receiving email server gets your message it looks for specific information in your email and the Domain Name System (DNS) records of your domain to determine the legitimacy and security of your message and whether it is safe for the recipient to receive, and, consequently, if the email came from an authorised source.
It is important to note that even if you’ve set up one or more email authentication methods but they failed the authentication process, your email can still end up being flagged as spam or rejected by the mail servers. Hence, rather than quickly setting up only one email authentication method, ensure you have multiple email authentication methods in place and regularly monitor the effect they have on your emails and your deliverability.

Email Authentication Methods

To set up an email authentication method, you have to create a few DNS records (or upload a file) to your domain hosting provider using the information rendered by your email marketing platform.
Beyond just looking at the sender’s email address, there are four email authentication methods (or standards) ISPs use that email marketers can take advantage of to ensure their emails will not end up in the spam folder or be rejected by the mail servers.

Sender Policy Framework (SPF)

Sender Policy Framework or SPF is an email authentication method whose purpose is to detect falsification of the sender address (return-path header) during the delivery of the email. It’s a DNS record that specifies which IP addresses and/or servers are allowed to send email communications from that particular domain.
Sender Policy Framework (SPF)
When implementing SPF, always keep in mind that each domain can have a maximum of only one SPF record.
When an SPF record is checked, there are five possible results –
a) None – no SPF record exists; b) Neutral – an SPF record was found. Yet, neither a positive nor negative assertion was made about the sender; c) Pass – the sender is authorised to send email communications on behalf of the domain; d) Fail – the sender is not authorised and the mail server may disregard the email; e) Soft fail – the sender is not authorised but the mail server may not disregard the email only based on this.
The disadvantage of SPF email authentication is that this method alone cannot authenticate the original author of the email. Instead, it authenticates only the source of it (return-path). The best course of action to prevent email spoofing is to combine SPF with DMARC and DKIM.

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM)

DomainKeys Identified Mail or DKIM is an email authentication method focused on detecting fake/fraudulent sender addresses in emails (email spoofing). Just like an SPF record, DKIM is a TXT record added to a domain’s DNS. It allows the email’s recipient to check if the email message has been indeed authorised by the owner of the domain.
DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM)
This email authentication method is done by adding a digital signature linked to a specific domain name to each outgoing email and affixed to the email as a header. By checking the sender’s public key published in the DNS, the email can be verified.
Unlike SPF, DKIM uses an encryption algorithm to create a pair of electronic keys – public and private. The public key is placed in the DNS record, whilst the private key remains on the servers it was created on (i.e. your mail server).
To implement DKIM, you are required to update your DNS – just like with SPF. However, it’s a bit more involved than setting up SPF since you’ll need to –
1) choose a DKIM selector – it can be anything – word, number or a combination of both (see an example below, the selector is highlighted);
DKIM-Signature: v=1; a=rsa-sha256; d=example.net; s=brisbane; c=relaxed/simple; q=dns/txt; t=1117574938; x=1118006938; h=from:to:subject:date:keywords:keywords; bh=MTIzNDU2Nzg5MDEyMzQ1Njc4OTAxMjM0NTY3ODkwMTI=; b=dzdVyOfAKCdLXdJOc9G2q8LoXSlEniSbav+yuU4zGeeruD00lszZ VoG4ZHRNiYzR
2) generate both public and private keys; 3) publish your selector and public key; and 4) attach the token to each one of your outgoing emails.
This tool can be particularly useful for generating a DKIM public and private key.

Domain Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance (DMARC)

Domain Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance or DMARC is an email authentication method focused on handling the problem of email spoofing by protecting both the sender and the recipient. Your DMARC record instructs the receiving server not to accept an email if it fails DKIM and SPF checks.
Domain Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance (DMARC)
Is DMARC enough for email authentication? On its own – no. DMARC needs SPF to work.
What is DMARC authentication and how does it work? >>>

Brand Indicators for Message Identification (BIMI)

Brand Indicators for Message Identification or BIMI is an open standard allowing businesses to verify their identity and be easily recognised in recipients’ inboxes. Similar to SPF, DKIM and DMARC, BIMI is a text record which lives on your servers. It works alongside all the other three authentication methods to show email clients you are you. Some even call this email authentication method DMARC 2.0.
Brand Indicators for Message Identification (BIMI)
What differentiates BIMI from the other three methods is that it allows businesses to display their logo in supported inboxes.
For more information about the BIMI standard click here.

Email Authentication Methods Review

1) SPF – to authenticate the sender’s identity this standard performs a check similar to verifying a return address. Simply put, the sender can define which IP addresses are allowed to send an email for a particular domain;
2) DKIM – this standard is also used to authenticate the sender’s identity, however, it looks beyond just the sender’s email address to ensure the content of the email is not altered by utilising an encryption key and digital signature which verify the email is authentic and not spoofed;
3) DMARC – think of this standard as a courier. It ensures emails meet SPF and DKIM requirements before they are even delivered; and
4) BIMI – this standard focuses on improving the sender’s credibility and legitimacy by displaying the sender’s logo in the inbox next to the email. If a brand has set up a BIMI record, once the receiving email servers receive the email it’ll run the usual DNS checks for the sender domain and if a BIMI record is found, it’ll ‘fetch it’ and show it.

Setting Up Email Authentication In EmailOut

By updating your Domain Name System (DNS) settings, you will benefit from DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM), Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and Domain Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) authentication.
Before you even begin with EmailOut’s DNS settings set up, make sure the email address you plan to send from is set up correctly. (N.B. EmailOut allows users to add as many ‘alternative email addresses’ as they’d like.)
Your next step is to access the dedicated DNS tool. There you will see three CNAME records that you’ll need to update your DNS settings –
https://preview.redd.it/fegu54d6xgo51.png?width=618&format=png&auto=webp&s=67b4ed530367c0066793ec774b12921023d4cc32
With these CNAME records at hand, head to your hosting service provider and search for a feature called ‘Manage DNS’ (or something similar), select your domain, then ‘Add New’ record and set the ‘Type’ to CNAME and ‘TTL’ to default. Afterwards, enter one record at a time like the example below:
https://preview.redd.it/q0kf3n87xgo51.png?width=597&format=png&auto=webp&s=e8951bbaf7cdd0d652b0c1338a3e38d3a035f571
If the DNS set up is successful, EmailOut’s DNS tool will have three green status ticks –
https://preview.redd.it/xemc3x28xgo51.png?width=956&format=png&auto=webp&s=e6bd0099e99ac3a5bfcfa6908d4550d837564e05
How long will the DNS set up take? The TTL (Time-To-Live) determines the time the records will take to propagate. This will vary for each domain hosting provider and may display as ‘1 Hour’ or ‘3600 seconds’ for example. Most providers will tell you it can take up to 48 hours but it’s usually a lot faster than this. The average time is 2 hours.

Final Thoughts

Email authentication is like a digital ID. It protects your brand’s integrity, identity and reputation. Implementing the proper email authentications methods like SPF, DKIM, DMARC and BIMI, will help you improve your email deliverability, email engagement and also, reassure your subscribers that you are who you say you are. Thus, creating a trusting relationship between you and the recipient.
To ensure everything with your email authentication is going smoothly, I recommend keeping an eye on email security metrics such as bounce and deliverability rates. If you notice a spike in bounces and a decrease in email deliverability, there might be something wrong with your email authentication. Ah, and remember, it’s always better to have more than one email authentication method in place.

2020.09.21 03:15 HairyFunny8 Hire a Phone Hacker to Spy on iPhone Remotely with Number

Do you want to know how to ethically hack and spy on a phone without them knowing? It’s been a tough call for most people who are in a broken bond with their children. For them, knowing the unknown is the only way out of the labyrinth of questions and assumptions that are tearing their lives apart. “What is he doing behind my back?” “Is he being bothered by something?” “Is someone bullying him?” These are some questions that could create a serious imbalance in one’s life. Trying to get answers without any confrontation seems like the best thing to do.
Spy apps have been there since we had Symbian mobile devices. Over these years, they have improved to be better and more sophisticated. In fact, we live in a time where businesses are monetizing on what the users are expecting to maximize the gains. How to spy on iPhone without touching it is another one of the many things that spy app users have been wanting. And it seems like that their prayers have been answered finally.
It’s no longer required to have access to someone’s iPhone in order to install a spyware to spy on them. Yes, you have heard it right, it is totally possible to spy on an iPhone or any other cell phone without having the phone. Many of us typically have believed that spying is only possible by jailbreaking an iPhone. What jailbreaking simply means is voiding the warranty of the device. This means you cannot really take the risk when it’s someone else’s iPhone.
Hire a Cell Phone Hacker to Spy on iPhone with no Need to Access Target iPhone
Since iCloud is a necessary cloud storage solution for anyone owning an iOS device, this opens for us a way to spy on an iPhone without having access to it. As a matter of fact, you don’t even have to install the spy app on the target iPhone. This also means you won’t necessarily need to have access the target iPhone.
But how could you use iCloud to your advantage? The answer is simple! You will be accessing the data stored on their iCloud to spy on their activities. But there is one prerequisite. You may be needing their ID and password. That would be easier if the gadget belongs to your kid or corporately owned.
It’s time to clear your head and get rid of all the misconceptions when it comes to iPhone spying. This article shows you how to spy on an iPhone without accessing it using DataBurglar! It’s one of those apps that can be easily used for this purpose. And no, you don’t have to install it on the iPhone you are planning to spy on.
Wait! Enable iCloud Backup First
It’s important to have the iCloud backup of the iPhone enabled. Otherwise, remote cell phone spying won’t be possible. It’s very simple to enable the iCloud backup on the target iPhone. You will need access to it for this though. Here is how to get started:
Best Way to Spy on Someone’s IPhone Remotely
The steps below explain how you can use DataBurglar to spy on someone’s iPhone remotely without jailbreaking it:
Step 1: Request DataBurglar: First, you need to request for DataBurglar by sending an email to - [email protected]. Once the service is set up, you will be given the activation code, login credentials and a guide on how to configure iCloud backup in the target device (the iPhone which you want to monitor). Chances are the iCloud backup is already turned on in the target phone. In case it’s not, we have explained the process above already.
Step 2: Log into the DataBurglar dashboard: You can either log into the dashboard from your iPhone by visiting DataBurglar’s web platform or via your computer. Enter your login credentials in the web account to access the dashboard.
Step 3: Enter the iCloud Credentials: DataBurglar prompts you to enter the iCloud credentials of the target iPhone as the dashboard opens up. After 24 hours, you can spy on the iPhone through the dashboard. No matter where the target device is, as long as it is connected to the internet, DataBurglar will keep sending the device’s data onto its servers and then you will be able to view anything that’s stored on the iPhone from a remote gps location.
Step 4: Navigate to the dashboard menu: Simply navigate through the dashboard menu to start spying on the iPhone. There is a separate tab for spying on text messages, call logs, messenger chats (you can read instant messenger conversations from Facebook, WhatsApp, Line, Viber, Kik and more), location tracking, photos, videos and a lot more. It is like controlling the iPhone from a remote location without having to physically access it. On top of that, no installation or jailbreaking is required!
Why Using DataBurglar Cell Phone Hacker is the Best Solution
It’s great you can spy on an iPhone remotely by using a spyware. But if you are not sure it’s the best solution to access the data on someone's device without touching it, the following reasons might change your mind: It’s 100% unrecognizableAmong the many benefits of using spy apps, this one’s at the top. Spying apps are 100 percent undetectable. The spy app silently sends all the information to the control panel of the user.

2020.09.21 02:47 Leather_Term Meet Brock Pierce, the Presidential Candidate With Ties to Pedophiles Who Wants to End Human Trafficking

thedailybeast.com Sep. 20, 2020.
The “Mighty Ducks” actor is running for president. He clears the air (sort of) to Tarpley Hitt about his ties to Jeffrey Epstein and more.
In the trailer for First Kid, the forgettable 1996 comedy about a Secret Service agent assigned to protect the president’s son, the title character, played by a teenage Brock Pierce, describes himself as “definitely the most powerful kid in the universe.” Now, the former child star is running to be the most powerful man in the world, as an Independent candidate for President of the United States.
Before First Kid, the Minnesota-born actor secured roles in a series of PG-rated comedies, playing a young Emilio Estevez in The Mighty Ducks, before graduating to smaller parts in movies like Problem Child 3: Junior in Love. When his screen time shrunk, Pierce retired from acting for a real executive role: co-founding the video production start-up Digital Entertainment Network (DEN) alongside businessman Marc Collins-Rector. At age 17, Pierce served as its vice president, taking in a base salary of $250,000.
DEN became “the poster child for dot-com excesses,” raising more than $60 million in seed investments and plotting a $75 million IPO. But it turned into a shorthand for something else when, in October of 1999, the three co-founders suddenly resigned. That month, a New Jersey man filed a lawsuit alleging Collins-Rector had molested him for three years beginning when he was 13 years old. The following summer, three teens filed a sexual-abuse lawsuit against Pierce, Collins-Rector, and their third co-founder, Chad Shackley. The plaintiffs later dropped their case against Pierce (he made a payment of $21,600 to one of their lawyers) and Shackley. But after a federal grand jury indicted Collins-Rector on criminal charges in 2000, the DEN founders left the country. When Interpol arrested them in 2002, they said they had confiscated “guns, machetes, and child pornography” from the trio’s beach villa in Spain.
While abroad, Pierce had pivoted to a new venture: Internet Gaming Entertainment, which sold virtual accessories in multiplayer online role-playing games to those desperate to pay, as one Wired reporter put it, “as much as $1,800 for an eight-piece suit of Skyshatter chain mail” rather than earn it in the games themselves. In 2005, a 25-year-old Pierce hired then-Goldman Sachs banker Steve Bannon—just before he would co-found Breitbart News. Two years later, after a World of Warcraft player sued the company for “diminishing” the fun of the game, Steve Bannon replaced Pierce as CEO.
Collins-Rector eventually pleaded guilty to eight charges of child enticement and registered as a sex offender. In the years that followed, Pierce waded into the gonzo economy of cryptocurrencies, where he overlapped more than once with Jeffrey Epstein, and counseled him on crypto. In that world, he founded Tether, a cryptocurrency that bills itself as a “stablecoin,” because its value is allegedly tied to the U.S. dollar, and the blockchain software company Block.one. Like his earlier businesses, Pierce’s crypto projects see-sawed between massive investments and curious deals. When Block.one announced a smart contract software called EOS.IO, the company raised $4 billion almost overnight, setting an all-time record before the product even launched. The Securities and Exchange Commission later fined the company $24 million for violating federal securities law. After John Oliver mocked the ordeal, calling Pierce a “sleepy, creepy cowboy,” Block.one fired him. Tether, meanwhile, is currently under investigation by the New York Attorney General for possible fraud.
On July 4, Pierce announced his candidacy for president. His campaign surrogates include a former Cambridge Analytica director and the singer Akon, who recently doubled down on developing an anonymously funded, $6 billion “Wakanda-like” metropolis in Senegal called Akon City. Pierce claims to be bipartisan, and from the 11 paragraphs on the “Policy” section of his website it can be hard to determine where he falls on the political spectrum. He supports legalizing marijuana and abolishing private prisons, but avoids the phrase “climate change.” He wants to end “human trafficking.” His proposal to end police brutality: body cams.
His political contributions tell a more one-sided story. Pierce’s sole Democratic contribution went to the short-lived congressional run of crypto candidate Brian Forde. The rest went to Republican campaigns like Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, John McCain, and the National Right to Life Political Action Committee. Last year alone, Pierce gave over $44,000 to the Republican National Committee and more than $55,000 to Trump’s re-election fund.
Pierce spoke to The Daily Beast from his tour bus and again over email. Those conversations have been combined and edited for clarity.
You’re announcing your presidential candidacy somewhat late, and historically, third-party candidates haven’t had the best luck with the executive office. If you don’t have a strong path to the White House, what do you want out of the race?
I announced on July 4, which I think is quite an auspicious date for an Independent candidate, hoping to bring independence to this country. There’s a lot of things that I can do. One is: I’m 39 years old. I turn 40 in November. So I’ve got time on my side. Whatever happens in this election cycle, I’m laying the groundwork for the future. The overall mission is to create a third major party—not another third party—a third major party in this country. I think that is what America needs most. George Washington in his closing address warned us about the threat of political parties. John Adams and the other founding fathers—their fear for our future was two political parties becoming dominant. And look at where we are. We were warned.
I believe, having studied systems, any time you have a system of two, what happens is those two things come together, like magnets. They come into collision, or they become polarized and become completely divided. I think we need to rise above partisan politics and find a path forward together. As Albert Einstein is quoted—I’m not sure the line came from him, but he’s quoted in many places—he said that the definition of insanity is making the same mistake or doing the same thing over and over and over again, expecting a different result. [Ed. note: Einstein never said this.] It feels like that’s what our election cycle is like. Half the country feels like they won, half the country feels like they lost, at least if they voted or participated.
Obviously, there’s another late-comer to the presidential race, and that’s Kanye West. He’s received a lot of flak for his candidacy, as he’s openly admitted to trying to siphon votes away from Joe Biden to ensure a Trump victory. Is that something you’re hoping to avoid or is that what you’re going for as well?
Oh no. This is a very serious campaign. Our campaign is very serious. You’ll notice I don’t say anything negative about either of the two major political candidates, because I think that’s one of the problems with our political system, instead of people getting on stage, talking about their visionary ideas, inspiring people, informing and educating, talking about problems, mentioning problems, talking about solutions, constructive criticism. That’s why I refuse to run a negative campaign. I am definitely not a spoiler. I’m into data, right? I’m a technologist. I’ve got digital DNA. So does most of our campaign team. We’ve got our finger on the pulse.
Most of my major Democratic contacts are really happy to see that we’re running in a red state like Wyoming. Kanye West’s home state is Wyoming. He’s not on the ballot in Wyoming I could say, in part, because he didn’t have Akon on his team. But I could also say that he probably didn’t want to be on the ballot in Wyoming because it’s a red state. He doesn’t want to take additional points in a state where he’s only running against Trump. But we’re on the ballot in Wyoming, and since we’re on the ballot in Wyoming I think it’s safe—more than safe, I think it’s evident—that we are not here to run as a spoiler for the benefit of Donald Trump.
In running for president, you’ve opened yourself up to be scrutinized from every angle going back to the beginning of your career. I wanted to ask you about your time at the Digital Entertainment Network. Can you tell me a little bit about how you started there? You became a vice president as a teenager. What were your qualifications and what was your job exactly?
Well, I was the co-founder. A lot of it was my idea. I had an idea that people would use the internet to watch videos, and we create content for the internet. The idea was basically YouTube and Hulu and Netflix. Anyone that was around in the ‘90s and has been around digital media since then, they all credit us as the creators of basically those ideas. I was just getting a message from the creator of The Vandals, the punk rock band, right before you called. He’s like, “Brock, looks like we’re going to get the Guinness Book of World Records for having created the first streaming television show.”
We did a lot of that stuff. We had 30 television shows. We had the top most prestigious institutions in the world as investors. The biggest names. High-net-worth investors like Terry Semel, who’s chairman and CEO of Warner Brothers, and became the CEO of Yahoo. I did all sorts of things. I helped sell $150,000 worth of advertising contracts to the CEOs of Pepsi and everything else. I was the face of the company, meeting all the major banks and everything else, selling the vision of what the future was.
You moved in with Marc Collins-Rector and Chad Shackley at a mansion in Encino. Was that the headquarters of the business?
All start-ups, they normally start out in your home. Because it’s just you. The company was first started out of Marc’s house, and it was probably there for the first two or three months, before the company got an office. That’s, like, how it is for all start-ups.
were later a co-defendant in the L.A. County case filed against Marc Collins-Rector for plying minors with alcohol and drugs, in order to facilitate sexual abuse. You were dropped from the case, but you settled with one of the men for $21,600. Can you explain that?
Okay, well, first of all, that’s not accurate. Two of the plaintiffs in that case asked me if I would be a plaintiff. Because I refused to be a part of the lawsuit, they chose to include me to discredit me, to make their case stronger. They also went and offered 50 percent of what they got to the house management—they went around and offered money to anyone to participate in this. They needed people to corroborate their story. Eventually, because I refused to participate in the lawsuit, they named me. Subsequently, all three of the plaintiffs apologized to me, in front of audiences, in front of many people, saying Brock never did anything. They dismissed their cases.
Remember, this is a civil thing. I’ve never been charged with a crime in my life. And the last plaintiff to have his case dismissed, he contacted his lawyer and said, “Dismiss this case against Brock. Brock never did anything. I just apologized. Dismiss his case.” And the lawyer said, “No. I won’t dismiss this case, I have all these out-of-pocket expenses, I refuse to file the paperwork unless you give me my out-of-pocket expenses.” And so the lawyer, I guess, had $21,000 in bills. So I paid his lawyer $21,000—not him, it was not a settlement. That was a payment to his lawyer for his out-of-pocket expenses. Out-of-pocket expenses so that he would file the paperwork to dismiss the case.
You’ve said the cases were unfounded, and the plaintiffs eventually apologized. But your boss, Marc Collins-Rector later pleaded guilty to eight charges of child enticement and registered as a sex offender. Were you aware of his behavior? How do you square the fact that later allegations proved to be true, but these ones were not?
Well, remember: I was 16 and 17 years old at the time? So, no. I don’t think Marc is the man they made him out to be. But Marc is not a person I would associate with today, and someone I haven’t associated with in a very long time. I was 16 and 17. I chose the wrong business partner. You live and you learn.
You’ve pointed out that you were underage when most of these allegations were said to take place. Did you ever feel like you were coerced or in over your head while working at DEN?
I mean, I was working 18 hours a day, doing things I’d never done before. It was business school. But I definitely learned a lot in building that company. We raised $88 million. We filed our [form] S-1 to go public. We were the hottest start-up in Los Angeles.
In 2000, you left the country with Marc Collins-Rector. Why did you leave? How did you spend those two years abroad?
I moved to Spain in 1999 for personal reasons. I spent those two years in Europe working on developing my businesses.
Interpol found you in 2002. The house where you were staying reportedly contained guns, machetes, and child pornography. Whose guns and child porn were those? Were you aware they were in the house, and how did those get there?
My lawyers have addressed this in 32 pages of documentation showing a complete absence of wrongdoing. Please refer to my webpage for more information.
[Ed. Note: The webpage does not mention guns, machetes, or child pornography. It does state:“It is true that when the local police arrested Collins-Rector in Spain in 2002 on an international warrant, Mr. Pierce was also taken into custody, but so was everyone at Collins-Rector’s house in Spain; and it is equally clear that Brock was promptly released, and no charges of any kind were ever filed against Brock concerning this matter.”]
What do you make of the allegations against Bryan Singer? [Ed. Note: Bryan Singer, a close friend of Collins-Rector, invested at least $50,000 in DEN. In an Atlantic article outlining Singer’s history of alleged sexual assault and statutory rape, one source claimed that at age 15, Collins-Rector abused him and introduced him to Singer, who then assaulted him in the DEN headquarters.]
I am aware of them and I support of all victims of sexual assault. I will let America’s justice system decide on Singer’s outcome.
In 2011, you spoke at the Mindshift conference supported by Jeffrey Epstein. At that point, he had already been convicted of soliciting prostitution from a minor. Why did you agree to speak?
I had never heard of Jeffrey Epstein. His name was not on the website. I was asked to speak at a conference alongside Nobel Prize winners. It was not a cryptocurrency conference, it was filled with Nobel Prize winners. I was asked to speak alongside Nobel Prize winners on the future of money. I speak at conferences historically, two to three times a week. I was like, “Nobel Prize winners? Sounds great. I’ll happily talk about the future of money with them.” I had no idea who Jeffrey Epstein was. His name was not listed anywhere on the website. Had I known what I know now? I clearly would have never spoken there. But I spoke at a conference that he cosponsored.
What’s your connection to the Clinton Global Initiative? Did you hear about it through Jeffrey Epstein?
I joined the Clinton Global Initiative as a philanthropist in 2006 and was a member for one year. My involvement with the Initiative had no connection to Jeffrey Epstein whatsoever.
You’ve launched your campaign in Minnesota, where George Floyd was killed by a police officer. How do you feel about the civil uprising against police brutality?
I’m from Minnesota. Born and raised. We just had a press conference there, announcing that we’re on the ballot. Former U.S. Senator Dean Barkley was there. So that tells you, when former U.S. Senators are endorsing the candidate, right?
[Ed. note: Barkley was never elected to the United States Senate. In November of 2002, he was appointed by then Minnesota Governor Jesse Venture to fill the seat after Sen. Paul Wellstone died in a plane crash. Barkley’s term ended on Jan. 3, 2003—two months later.]
Yes, George Floyd was murdered in Minneapolis. My vice-presidential running mate Karla Ballard and I, on our last trip to Minnesota together, went to visit the George Floyd Memorial. I believe in law and order. I believe that law and order is foundational to any functioning society. But there is no doubt in my mind that we need reform. These types of events—this is not an isolated incident. This has happened many times before. It’s time for change. We have a lot of detail around policy on this issue that we will be publishing next week. Not just high-level what we think, not just a summary, but detailed policy.
You said that you support “law and order.” What does that mean?
“Law and order” means creating a fair and just legal system where our number one priority is protecting the inalienable rights of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” for all people. This means reforming how our police intervene in emergency situations, abolishing private prisons that incentivize mass incarceration, and creating new educational and economic opportunities for our most vulnerable communities. I am dedicated to preventing crime by eliminating the socioeconomic conditions that encourage it.
I support accountability and transparency in government and law enforcement. Some of the key policies I support are requiring body-cams on all law enforcement officers who engage with the public, curtailing the 1033 program that provides local law enforcement agencies with access to military equipment, and abolishing private prisons. Rather than simply defund the police, my administration will take a holistic approach to heal and unite America by ending mass incarceration, police brutality, and racial injustice.
Did you attend any Black Lives Matter protests?
I support all movements aimed at ending racial injustice and inequality. I​ have not attended any Black Lives Matter protests.​ My running-mate, Karla Ballard, attended the March on Washington in support of racial justice and equality.
Your platform doesn’t mention the words “climate change.” Is there a reason for that?
I’m not sure what you mean. Our policy platform specifically references human-caused climate change and we have a plan to restabilize the climate, address environmental degradation, and ensure environmental sustainability.
[Ed. Note: As of writing the Pierce campaign’s policy platform does not specifically reference human-caused climate change.]
You’ve recently brought on Akon as a campaign surrogate. How did that happen? Tell me about that.
Akon and I have been friends for quite some time. I was one of the guys that taught him about Bitcoin. I helped make some videogames for him, I think in 2012. We were talking about Bitcoin, teaching him the ropes, back in 2013. And in 2014, we were both speaking at the Milken Global Conference, and I encouraged him to talk about how Bitcoin, Africa, changed the world. He became the biggest celebrity in the world, talking about Bitcoin at the time. I’m an adviser to his Akoin project, very interested in the work that he’s doing to build a city in Africa.
I think we need a government that’s of, for, and by the people. Akon has huge political aspirations. He obviously was a hugely successful artist. But he also discovered artists like Lady Gaga. So not only is he, himself, a great artist, but he’s also a great identifier and builder of other artists. And he’s been a great businessman, philanthropist. He’s pushing the limits of what can be done. We’re like-minded individuals in that regard. I think he’ll be running for political office one day, because he sees what I see: that we need real change, and we need a government that is of, for, and by the people.
You mentioned that you’re an adviser on Akoin. Do you have any financial investments in Akoin or Akon City?
I don’t believe so. I’d have to check. I have so much stuff. But I don’t believe that I have any economic interests in his stuff. I’d have to verify that. We’ll get back to you. I don’t believe that I have any economic interests. My interest is in helping him. He’s a visionary with big ideas that wants to help things in the world. If I can be of assistance in helping him make the world a better place, I’m all for it. I’m not motivated by money. I’m not running for office because I’m motivated by power. I’m running for office because I’m deeply, deeply concerned about our collective future.
You’ve said you’re running on a pro-technology platform. One week into your campaign last month, a New York appeals court approved the state Attorney General’s attempt to investigate the stablecoin Tether for potentially fraudulent activity. Do you think this will impact your ability to sell people on your tech entrepreneurship?
No, I think my role in Tether is as awesome as it gets. It was my idea. I put it together. But I’ve had no involvement in the company since 2015. I gave all of my equity to the other shareholders. I’ve had zero involvement in the company for almost six years. It was just my idea. I put the initial team together. But I think Tether is one of the most important innovations in the world, certainly. The idea is, I digitized the U.S. dollar. I used technology to digitize currency—existing currency. The U.S. dollar in particular. It’s doing $10 trillion a year. Ten trillion dollars a year of transactional volume. It’s probably the most important innovation in currency since the advent of fiat money. The people that took on the business and ran the business in years to come, they’ve done things I’m not proud of. I’m not sure they’ve done anything criminal. But they certainly did things differently than I would do. But it’s like, you have kids, they turn 18, they go out into the world, and sometimes you’re proud of the things they do, and sometimes you shake your head and go, “Ugh, why did you do that?” I have zero concerns as it relates to me personally. I wish they made better decisions.
What do you think the investigation will find?
I have no idea. The problem that was raised is that there was a $5 million loan between two entities and whether or not they had the right to do that, did they disclose it correctly. There’s been no accusations of, like, embezzlement or anything that bad.
[Ed. Note: The Attorney General’s press release on the investigation reads: “Our investigation has determined that the operators of the ‘Bitfinex’ trading platform, who also control the ‘tether’ virtual currency, have engaged in a cover-up to hide the apparent loss of $850 million dollars of co-mingled client and corporate funds.”]
But there’s been some disclosure things, that is the issue. No one is making any outrageous claims that these are people that have done a bunch of bad—well, on the internet, the media has said that the people behind the business may have been manipulating the price of Bitcoin, but I don’t think that has anything to do with the New York investigation. Again, I’m so not involved, and so not at risk, that I’m not even up to speed on the details.
[Ed note: A representative of the New York State Attorney General told Forbes that he “cannot confirm or deny that the investigation” includes Pierce.]
We’ve recently witnessed the rise of QAnon, the conspiracy theory that Hollywood is an evil cabal of Satanic pedophiles and Trump is the person waging war on them. You mentioned human trafficking, which has become a cause for them. What are your thoughts on that?
I’ve watched some of the content. I think it’s an interesting phenomenon. I’m an internet person, so Anonymous is obviously an organization that has been doing interesting stuff. It’s interesting. I don’t have a big—conspiracy theory stuff is—I guess I have a question for you: What do you think of all of it, since you’re the expert?
You know, I think it’s not true, but I’m not running for president. I do wonder what this politician [Georgia congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene], who’s just won her primary, is going to do on day one, once she finds out there’s no satanic cabal room.
Wait, someone was running for office and won on a QAnon platform, saying that Hollywood did—say what? You’re the expert here.
She won a primary. But I want to push on if we only have a few minutes. In 2006, your gaming company IGE brought on Steve Bannon as an investor. Goldman later bought out most of your stock. Bannon eventually replaced you as CEO of Affinity. You’ve described him as your “right-hand man for, like, seven years.” How well did you know Bannon during that time?
Yes, so this is in my mid-twenties. He wasn’t an investor. He worked for me. He was my banker. He worked for me for three years as my yield guide. And then he was my CEO running the company for another four years. So I haven’t worked with Steve for a decade or so. We worked in videogame stuff and banking. He was at Goldman Sachs. He was not in the political area at the time. But he was a pretty successful banker. He set up Goldman Sachs Los Angeles. So for me, I’d say he did a pretty good job.
During your business relationship, Steve Bannon founded Breitbart News, which has pretty consistently published racist material. How do you feel about Breitbart?
I had no involvement with Breitbart News. As for how I feel about such material, I’m not pleased by any form of hate-mongering. I strongly support the equality of all Americans.
Did you have qualms about Bannon’s role in the 2016 election?
Bannon’s role in the Trump campaign got me to pay closer attention to what he was doing but that’s about it. Whenever you find out that one of your former employees has taken on a role like that, you pay attention.
Bannon served on the board of Cambridge Analytica. A staffer on your campaign, Brittany Kaiser, also served as a business director for them. What are your thoughts on their use of illicitly-obtained Facebook data for campaign promotional material?
Yes, so this will be the last question I can answer because I’ve got to be off for this 5:00 pm. But Brittany Kaiser is a friend of mine. She was the whistleblower of Cambridge Analytica. She came to me and said, “What do I do?” And I said, “Tell the truth. The truth will set you free.”
[Ed. Note: Investigations in Cambridge Analytica took place as early as Nov. 2017, when a U.K. reporter at Channel 4 News recorded their CEO boasting about using “beautiful Ukranian girls” and offers of bribes to discredit political officials. The first whistleblower was Christopher Wylie, who disclosed a cache of documents to The Guardian, published on Mar. 17, 2018. Kaiser’s confession ran five days later, after the scandal made national news. Her association with Cambridge Analytica is not mentioned anywhere on Pierce’s campaign website.]
So I’m glad that people—I’m a supporter of whistleblowers, people that see injustice in the world and something not right happening, and who put themselves in harm’s way to stand up for what they believe in. So I stand up for Brittany Kaiser.
Who do you think [anonymous inventor of Bitcoin] Satoshi Nakamoto is?
We all are Satoshi Nakamoto.
You got married at Burning Man. Have you been attending virtual Burning Man?
I’m running a presidential campaign. So, while I was there in spirit, unfortunately my schedule did not permit me to attend.

2020.09.20 20:37 investing-scientist2 Viventor: conclusions from meta-analysis of recent reviews

IN SHORT
Today I looked for Viventor reviews published or updated withing the last six months. I was only interested in those of them that gave a final score (it was always a system of five stars, with five meaning highest score). I also looked for opinions at portals, such as Trustpilot. With that I calculated an overall score for Viventor, which turned out to be 3.8 out of 5.0. Below, I’m showing details for that simple calculation, some basic data about this P2P lending platform as well as any other information I believe you should know before deciding to invest.

Viventor: key facts

METHODOLOGY AND RESULTS
I was looking for sources of data by googling “Viventor review”, “Viventor Erfahrungen” etc. I did the search in English, German, Spanish and Italian. From a list of found reviews I only kept those published or updated in the last six months and providing an overall score for the platform. In this way I got six reviews and scores from three portals with people’s opinions. Here are the details.

2020.09.19 05:55 AdamThaChamp420 Monday Money Making Methods... $BRTXQ

Well today was Friday and everybody knows the weekends go by alot slower than the weekdays... But this weekend is a good time to do some DD and figure out your winning picks for Monday. My winning pick for Monday is BRTXQ and here is why....
BRTXQ is a revolutionary medical research company dealing with Stem Cells for back pain and so much more... even using stem cells for cosmetic reasons.... interesting right....
THEY JUST BEAT THE BANKRUPTCY AND ALL COMMON SHARES STAY INTACT!!!!
1) Bankruptcy reorganization plan officially signed sealed and delivered (the plan is said to already be approved)
2) Expected K-8 form filing from the the company via sec.gov ... you can check to see if it has been released yet here https://www.sec.gov/edgasearch/#/dateRange=5y&startdt=2015-09-15&enddt=2020-09-15&category=all&locationType=located&locationCode=all&ciks=0001505497&entityName=BioRestorative%2520Therapies%252C%2520Inc.%2520(BRTX)%2520(CIK%25200001505497)&page=1
3) Press release from the company updating shareholders this coming week.
4)Rumored that the company will also pursue a reenlistment on the NASDAQ trading exchange... it traded on the NASDAQ about a year ago for over .30 and the reason it was removed from NASDAQ was because of the lawsuit that BRTXQ just won last week but hasn't been announced officially yet until this week.
5) Replaced the old CEO with a new motivated and driven CEO.
6) Getting media attention and being noticed by new investors. The BRTXQ stock is trending daily on Google, Twitter, Yahoo & several other media sites.
7) The last hour of trading on Friday the buy orders increased significantly. Showing that the people on the inside that know information before us started to buy large amounts of shares.
8) All of the short term investors that bought this stock for 0.000s they have sold and taken most of there profits and now people that are investing in this stock are here for the long haul which will keep the stock price increasing.
9) BRTXQ has 0 debt as well as controlling 8 patients in the US and several more internationally. As well as the are doing human trials. Look at there intellectual portfolio here https://patents.justia.com/assignee/biorestorative-therapies-inc
10) Cleared for Phase 2 trials and will soon be cleared for Phase 3 trials
11) Bio Medical stocks have many more chances for runs and break outs in the stock price due to the many different press releases and upcoming news they get to announce such as trials and potential new products etc.
12) Monday is a court hearing where BRTXQ is the plaintiff and not the defendant.
13) BRTXQ - BioRestorative Therapies Inc closed Friday Up 19.65% and traded 74% more volume than normal st closing...
I have 100s of more reasons why BRTXQ is my Monday Money pick but what do you think????
