Initiative Q update

We are reaching out to you to let you know about exciting developments at Initiative Q.
First, we have released a new mobile app. This app is part of Initiative Q’s payment system infrastructure. Once the payment system is launched, users will be able to use the app to make payments, track past transactions, communicate with sellers, etc. Until the payment network is live, the app will provide an easy way to manage invitations, and track Initiative Q's progress.

You now have new opportunities to reserve additional Qs both for installing the app yourself and for inviting others to do the same. Login to your Initiative Q account for more info.

Second, more than 7 million users have signed up to Initiative Q! We are excited as, together, we are making progress towards making our vision a reality.

Third, we have announced the establishment of Initiative Q’s Economic Advisory Board. In addition to Professor Lawrence White, the distinguished economist who has accompanied Initiative Q since its inception, we are happy to introduce three new economists who, collectively, will inaugurate our Economic Advisory Board:
Marc Rysman, professor of economics at Boston University
William J. Luther, assistant professor of economics at Florida Atlantic University
James Caton, assistant professor of economics at North Dakota State University
This advisory board’s role will be to help design and oversee Initiative Q’s economic and monetary policies as its vision becomes a reality.

Finally, we would like to thank you again for joining Initiative Q and helping us spread the word. We still need to reach millions more to reach the future of payments.

Jeremy Kyle's show permanently cancelled.  About time

It probably is about time but not sure about it being for this reason. Everyone else copes, they know what they're signing up for.

Unless Kyle said "you should go and kill yourself", of course, which would be different.

There's a very wide canyon between coping and suicide. The show targets vulnerable people for entertainment, its trash TV and I'm glad it's gone.

Hope it comes out that the lie detector results are completely fabricated for entertainment.

:thup:

Other people will always cope in situations others can't, but that's the exact thing that's held us back in terms of dealing with mental health issues.  A "well, they were okay through it", "why can't you just toughen up like the others" line of thought.  Not helpful and extremely short-sighted.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

Absolutely! And all the other s**** that comes under the umbrella. Although I would allow Gemma Collins to remain as a "reality" star. Follow her every grotesque move and broadcast it live to the world.

Absolutely this. Jeremy Kyle is a f***ing s*** show, but Love Island does equally tremendous damage in terms of presenting an entirely vacant, superficial, image of what young people could aspire to.

Made some more noise :)

Listen to Devil's Advocate by Wallsend Noise Club on #SoundCloud
https://soundcloud.com/wallsend-noise-club/devils-advocate

I was thinking it was amazing while I was putting it together but I reckon I've f***ed the mix up a bit, such a minefield all that lark like :lol: As usual I can only hear the faults now :lol:

OK I have fixed this now and replaced the file on Soundcloud :lol: I realised I'd totally f***ed up the Mastering part so I've re-done it and am pretty bloody pleased with it now :)

At the risk of sounding proper old man... Noticed this trend in the last couple of days of people walking around standing on the back of their shoes. Like they were sanders or whatever, but instead they've just crushed the back of the shoes with their heel. Seems needless :lol:
