Australian computer scientist Craig Steven Wright has publicly identified himself as “Satoshi Nakamoto,” founder of the widely-used cryptocurrency Bitcoin.

Wright has told three media organizations — the BBC, the Economist and GQ — that he is the father of Bitcoin. The computer scientist has also published a blog post that he says includes cryptographic proof for the claim.

Bitcoin was created in 2009, but the identity of its founder has remained shrouded in secrecy. The creator used the name “Satoshi Nakamoto,” but many experts have assumed the moniker was a pseudonym.

Speculation over the mystery flourished in recent years, and multiple media outlets carried out investigations that sought to unmask the founder. At least a dozen of people have in the past been named as Bitcoin creators.

Newsweek, for example, reported in 2014 that a retired engineer named Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto was the one. But Nakamoto forcefully denied the report, saying he had never even heard of the currency.

The New Yorker ran an article in 2011 that suggested a graduate student in cryptography at Trinity College could be the founder. The student denied the claim.

In 2015, tech publications Wired and Gizmodo put forward Wright’s name. “Either Wright invented Bitcoin, or he’s a brilliant hoaxer who very badly wants us to believe he did,” Wired wrote at the time. Australian media reported at that time that a house believed to be owned by Wright has been searched by the Australian Federal Police in connection to a tax issue.

But many questions remained unanswered.

The blog published by Wright on Monday seeks to remove all doubts. In it, the computer scientist claims to verify the cryptographic keys to a key Bitcoin “block,” or group of transactions, that dates to the early days of the currency.

Two leading Bitcoin developers, Jon Matonis and Gavin Andersen, came forward on Monday, backing Wright’s claims.

Andersen, who is the chief scientist at the Bitcoin Foundation, said Wright demonstrated the supposed verifications keys to him at a meeting in London a couple of weeks ago. “After spending time with him I am convinced beyond a reasonable doubt: Craig Wright is Satoshi,” he said in a blog post.

Matonis, who is the founding director at Bitcoin Foundation, said he was also convinced Wright was the founder of Bitcoin, after attending a private proof session with him.

But many other Bitcoin developers remain skeptical. They say the blog itself proves nothing, publishing something that has been “out there” for a while. They also claim cryptographic keys found on Wright’s blog posts have been backdated.

“The page copies a signature out of the Bitcoin Blockchain from 2009,” said Greg Maxwell, the chief technology office at Blockstream, a Bitcoin startup.

Wright reportedly demonstrated the procedure for the Economist, which reported that, “as far as we can tell he indeed seems to be in possession of the keys.”

But even the Economist, which agreed not to write about the computer scientist until the blog post was published, has doubts.

“Our conclusion is that Mr. Wright could well be Mr Nakamoto, but that important questions remain,” the magazine said in its report.

Wright did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday. “Some people will believe, some people won’t,” he told the BBC. “And to tell you the truth, I don’t really care.”

He told the Economist and the BBC he was not seeking publicity. “I don’t want money, I don’t want fame, I don’t want adoration. I just want to be left alone,” he said in a video posted by the BBC.

On his blog, Wright said he came out as the founder of Bitcoin to “set the record straight” and “dispel the myths out there and unleash its potential to change the world for the better.”

 Ethical Egoism  Comments Off on Psychological Egoism – Philosophy Home Page
Mar 232016
 

Abstract: Psychological egoism, the view that people act solely in their own interest, is defined and shown not to be a meaningful ethical philosophy.

I. The distinction between psychological egoism and ethical egoism reflects the contrast of “is” verses “ought,” “fact” verses “value,” or “descriptive” verses “prescriptive.”

II. By way of clarification of relevant terms, James Rachels, among others, points out common confusion concerning selfishness and self-interest.

III. The Refutation of Psychological Egoism: arguments to the conclusion that the generalization everyone acts from the motive of self-interest is false.

IV.Interestingly enough, the same objections can be raised against the view termed, “psychological altruism”: all persons act from the motive of helping others, and all actions are done from other-regarding motives. (Psychological altruism is a view advanced only from the position of a “devil’s advocate.”)

V. As a final note, it should be mentioned that psychological egoism can’t be saved by psychoanalytic theory. I.e., Freud’s notion of the unconscious raises the possibility that we have unconscious desires and can act against our conscious inclinations. If it is argued that we always unconsciously seek our self-interest, then this view is untestable and circular as well.

Consider the following passage from Freud’s Interpretations of Dreams*:

“A contradiction to my theory of dream produced by another of my women patients (the cleverest of all my dreamers) was resolved more simply, but upon the same pattern: namely that the nonfulfillment of one wish meant the fulfillment of another. One day I had been explaining to her that dreams are fulfillments of wishes. Next day she brought me a dream in which she was traveling down with her mother-in-law to the place in the country where they were to spend their holidays together. Now I knew that she had violently rebelled against the idea of spending the summer near her mother-in-law and that a few days earlier she had successfully avoided the propinquity she dreaded by engaging rooms in a far distant resort. And now her dream had undone the solution she had wished for; was not this the sharpest contradiction of my theory that in dreams wishes are fulfilled? No doubt; and it was only necessary to follow the dreams logical consequence in order to arrive at its interpretation. The dream showed that I was wrong. Thus it was her wish that I might be wrong, and her dream showed that wish fulfilled (italics original)”

*Sigmund Freud, The Interpretations of Dreams (New York: Avon, 1966), 185.

Virginia has over 3,300 miles of shoreline, including 112 miles of coasts. Its not surprising to find that the state also has several famous beaches that draw millions of tourists each year for swimming, fishing, boating, seashell collecting, bird watching, clamming and nature trails.

Assateague Island straddles two states, Maryland and Virginia, and was established in 1962 as the Assateague Island National Seashore to protect its natural environment as a vital resting and migratory spot for various bird species. All the 37 miles of dunes, wildlife and wetlands are protected, and therefore, there are no signs of commercial or residential development. Assateague is best known for the wild ponies that wander the pristine beaches, as well as the Assateague Lighthouse, which is open to public visitors. Toms Cove Visitor Center 8586 Beach Road Chincoteague Island, VA 23336 757-336-6577 nps.gov/asis

Chincoteague is home to the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, listed as one of the top five U.S. shorebird migratory staging areas. Chincoteague is Virginias only resort island, and is world famous for oyster beds and clam shoals. Its also the gateway to Assateague, and the wild ponies there are herded to swim across the channel to Chincoteague Island each July for auction, a popular public event. In addition to the usual swimming, sun bathing and water sports, the Park Service and Wildlife Refuge both offer guided wildlife tours and exhibits throughout the year. Chincoteague Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center 6733 Maddox Blvd. Chincoteague Island, VA 23336 757-336-6161 chincoteague.com

Colonial Beach is at the tip of the Northern Neck region, one of the few remaining small seaport towns on the Potomac River. It has sandy beaches and marinas on Monroe Bay ideal for swimming, boating and sailing. The area is also quite historic, containing George Washington’s birthplace; Stratford Hall, the boyhood home of Robert E. Lee; and neighboring Westmoreland County, the birthplace of James Monroe. Colonial Beach has been designated as one of the few Golf Cart Towns, where golf carts may be operated by licensed drivers on city streets, but the Town Trolley also makes sightseeing stops. Colonial Beach Chamber of Commerce 6 N Irving Ave. Colonial Beach, VA 22443 804-224-8145 info@colonialbeach.org colonialbeach.org

At the northern end of Norfolk on the Chesapeake Bay lies Ocean View Beach, with 7.5 miles of beaches, commercial piers, bait shops, rental paddle boats, Jet Skis and sailboats, and a park with a bathhouse and picnic tables. The Ocean View Beach Festival is held every summer with live music, dancing and family activities right on the beach. The boardwalk is a good spot for a stroll and occasional sightings of submarines from nearby Norfolk Naval Air Station. Ocean View Beach Park 100 W. Ocean View Ave. Norfolk, VA 757-441-1776 oceanviewscene.com

Virginia Beach is the states most famous beach and the third largest in the United States, with 35 miles of waterfront property. Chesapeake Bay Beach and Sandbridge are two distinct beaches within the city borders that are more tranquil and secluded. For those who want excitement, theres the Resort Beaches area, which include the 3-mile oceanfront boardwalk, with bikes and roller blades for rent, restaurants, shops and various festivals during the summer. There are plenty of options for additional entertainment, including 4,000 acres in parks and national refuges, the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center and the Virginia Beach Oceanfront Waterpark.

Big Bang Theory

 The Singularity  Comments Off on Big Bang Theory
Jan 142016
 

You are here: Science >> Big Bang Theory

Big Bang Theory – The Premise The Big Bang theory is an effort to explain what happened at the very beginning of our universe. Discoveries in astronomy and physics have shown beyond a reasonable doubt that our universe did in fact have a beginning. Prior to that moment there was nothing; during and after that moment there was something: our universe. The big bang theory is an effort to explain what happened during and after that moment.

According to the standard theory, our universe sprang into existence as “singularity” around 13.7 billion years ago. What is a “singularity” and where does it come from? Well, to be honest, we don’t know for sure. Singularities are zones which defy our current understanding of physics. They are thought to exist at the core of “black holes.” Black holes are areas of intense gravitational pressure. The pressure is thought to be so intense that finite matter is actually squished into infinite density (a mathematical concept which truly boggles the mind). These zones of infinite density are called “singularities.” Our universe is thought to have begun as an infinitesimally small, infinitely hot, infinitely dense, something – a singularity. Where did it come from? We don’t know. Why did it appear? We don’t know.

After its initial appearance, it apparently inflated (the “Big Bang”), expanded and cooled, going from very, very small and very, very hot, to the size and temperature of our current universe. It continues to expand and cool to this day and we are inside of it: incredible creatures living on a unique planet, circling a beautiful star clustered together with several hundred billion other stars in a galaxy soaring through the cosmos, all of which is inside of an expanding universe that began as an infinitesimal singularity which appeared out of nowhere for reasons unknown. This is the Big Bang theory.

Big Bang Theory – Common Misconceptions There are many misconceptions surrounding the Big Bang theory. For example, we tend to imagine a giant explosion. Experts however say that there was no explosion; there was (and continues to be) an expansion. Rather than imagining a balloon popping and releasing its contents, imagine a balloon expanding: an infinitesimally small balloon expanding to the size of our current universe.

Another misconception is that we tend to image the singularity as a little fireball appearing somewhere in space. According to the many experts however, space didn’t exist prior to the Big Bang. Back in the late ’60s and early ’70s, when men first walked upon the moon, “three British astrophysicists, Steven Hawking, George Ellis, and Roger Penrose turned their attention to the Theory of Relativity and its implications regarding our notions of time. In 1968 and 1970, they published papers in which they extended Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity to include measurements of time and space.1, 2 According to their calculations, time and space had a finite beginning that corresponded to the origin of matter and energy.”3 The singularity didn’t appear in space; rather, space began inside of the singularity. Prior to the singularity, nothing existed, not space, time, matter, or energy – nothing. So where and in what did the singularity appear if not in space? We don’t know. We don’t know where it came from, why it’s here, or even where it is. All we really know is that we are inside of it and at one time it didn’t exist and neither did we.

Big Bang Theory – Evidence for the Theory What are the major evidences which support the Big Bang theory?

Big Bang Theory – The Only Plausible Theory? Is the standard Big Bang theory the only model consistent with these evidences? No, it’s just the most popular one. Internationally renown Astrophysicist George F. R. Ellis explains: “People need to be aware that there is a range of models that could explain the observations.For instance, I can construct you a spherically symmetrical universe with Earth at its center, and you cannot disprove it based on observations.You can only exclude it on philosophical grounds. In my view there is absolutely nothing wrong in that. What I want to bring into the open is the fact that we are using philosophical criteria in choosing our models. A lot of cosmology tries to hide that.”4

In 2003, Physicist Robert Gentry proposed an attractive alternative to the standard theory, an alternative which also accounts for the evidences listed above.5 Dr. Gentry claims that the standard Big Bang model is founded upon a faulty paradigm (the Friedmann-lemaitre expanding-spacetime paradigm) which he claims is inconsistent with the empirical data. He chooses instead to base his model on Einstein’s static-spacetime paradigm which he claims is the “genuine cosmic Rosetta.” Gentry has published several papers outlining what he considers to be serious flaws in the standard Big Bang model.6 Other high-profile dissenters include Nobel laureate Dr. Hannes Alfvn, Professor Geoffrey Burbidge, Dr. Halton Arp, and the renowned British astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle, who is accredited with first coining the term “the Big Bang” during a BBC radio broadcast in 1950.

Big Bang Theory – What About God? Any discussion of the Big Bang theory would be incomplete without asking the question, what about God? This is because cosmogony (the study of the origin of the universe) is an area where science and theology meet. Creation was a supernatural event. That is, it took place outside of the natural realm. This fact begs the question: is there anything else which exists outside of the natural realm? Specifically, is there a master Architect out there? We know that this universe had a beginning. Was God the “First Cause”? We won’t attempt to answer that question in this short article. We just ask the question:

Does God Exist?

UK boosting military spending to Falklands as Argentina firms up ties with Russia

 Islands  Comments Off on UK boosting military spending to Falklands as Argentina firms up ties with Russia
Mar 262015
 

The United Kingdom plans to spend about $417 million, or 280 million pounds, to beef up defense spending in the Falklands Islands during the next decade to counter what the countrys defense minister calls a very live threat in Argentina.

The UK believes Argentina is becoming a growing menace to their south Atlantic territory because of the countrys nascent, but troubling, relationship with both Iran and Russia. So UK plans to improve its defense system and other facilities on the island and will send two Royal Air Force Chinook transport helicopters to help the islands’ garrison mount a “swift and decisive response” to any “emerging incidents,” said Defense Minister Michael Fallon, according to the BBC.

Troop levels on the islands will remain steady, at around 1,200 soldiers.

“The principle threat to the islands remains,” Fallon told legislators on Tuesday, according to Time. “I am confident that, following this review, we have the right deployment.”

The announcement from British officials comes as the government of Argentinian President Cristina Fernndez de Kirchner has been seen as cozying up to both Russia and Iran.

The Sun newspaper reported that Russia is planning to lease 12 long-range bombers to the Argentinian government — something that Fallon denied was credible and an investigation by late Argentinian prosecutor Alberto Nisman found that the Fernndez government was willing to cover-up Iran’s role in the 1994 bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish center for cheaper oil from Tehran.

Besides Argentina’s growing ties with some of the U.K.’s main adversaries on the world stage, relations between London and Buenos Aires have hovered between cordial to ice cold since the end of the brief, but bloody Falklands War in 1982.

Argentina, which calls the Falklands islands Las Malvinas, says it has a right to the territory because it inherited it from the Spanish crown in the early 1800s. It also cites the islands’ proximity to South America as another reason why it should control them.

The approximate 3,000 residents who live on the islands, which lie about 300 miles off the coast of the Argentinian Patagonia, are almost exclusively of British descent and consider themselves loyal subjects of the British Crown a fact that the U.K. uses to base its claim on the islands.

There is some speculation that Fallon is using the Falklands issue as a political tool in the run-up to U.K.’s general election in six weeks. His Conservative Party is traditionally viewed as soundest on defense in an election where the issue has taken the forefront.
