A Major Bitcoin Exchange Is In Even Worse Trouble Than Thought

The bitcoin and cryptocurrency world was rocked last week by news U.S. authorities had levied charges against major bitcoin and crypto exchange BitMEX and its leadership team.

Yardi Releases Kno2 Integration for Clinical Information Exchange | News

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Oct. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Yardi® has significantly expanded interoperability in Yardi® EHR through a new integration with Kno2®. Kno2’s Interoperability as a Service™ (IaaS) enables Yardi EHR clients to securely share clinical records with more than 2.4 million health care providers nationwide.

For incoming residents, health data automatically flows into Yardi EHR. If clinical information needs to be shared with an external

Country B is essentially a petrol state that ranks low on various financial freedom indexes. Its relatively recent transition to a market-based economy has been bumpy, and its embrace of democratic processes and norms has been widely criticized by human rights groups. Country B’s President, for example, recently changed the constitution to extend his rule by decades and is widely suspected of routinely poisoning his political foes.

And yet to investors, the two countries are widely indistinguishable. They’re both seen as a lousy place to sink your spare cash.
