The Blockchain Ecosystem is Entering Maturity: RedCab and WishKnish Collaborate to Scale the “Uber of Egypt”

Washington, DC, USA, 2018-Jun-13 — /EPR Network/ — The 1990’s saw an internet boom where anything that had a “dot com” at the end was golden. Soon enough though, people began to wake up and realize that unless the “dot coms” became easy to use and universally applicable, all those fever dreams of internet enthusiasts would forever remain just that – dreams. Eventually, email communication matured, America Online begat many long-distance romances (and even a famous rom-com), and MySpace became a worldwide phenomenon.

Now, in 2018, we are finding ourselves in the midst of a similar era – complete with blazing-fast growth and unprecedented opportunities. And once more, the blockchain enthusiasts’ dreams are crashing against real-world usability and adaptability challenges.

And that’s exactly why the newly-announced partnership between Cairo-based RedCab and Washington DC-bredWishKnish stands to bring decentralized commerce another step (or leap) closer to full retailization, putting a friendly, human face on a set of often-complicated technologies and making them accessible to… well, literally anyone.

Corrosion Management For Storage Facilities Using NDT

Many industries including agriculture, general chemical, oil & gas store and energy use above-ground, below-ground, vertical, cylindrical and horizontal tanks to store product with the energy industry in particular exposed to the possibility of corrosion-related issues in their storage facilities. Millions of litres of oil, petrochemicals, liquid gas and other materials are stored in tanks and any failures could have catastrophic results.

Environmental conditions including weather and ground conditions can cause corrosion, but the bulk of the risk emanates from the contents of the storage facilities themselves. Harsh chemicals, contaminants and other corrosive materials which are kept in storage tanks can cause internal corrosion of the metal tanks, pipelines and platforms both on-site and further downstream, with the likelihood of degradation escalating when they’re subjected to constant or regular exposure to corrosive substances.

Centres With A Difference

Perth, Australia, 2018-May-31 — /EPR Network/ — Nido Early School centres have established themselves as the benchmark for excellence in early education in Australia and one of the key things setting them apart from other education providers is that they practice what they preach.

Their values and ethos are bound by a passion to provide young minds with the ability, means and skills to enable and sustain future growth and development – and anyone who has experienced this philosophy in action will attest that these aren’t simply hollow words that sound good. The centres really do deliver on their promises.

There are a number of Nido Early School centres in West Australia and Victoria and the company is currently undergoing rapid growth to meet escalating demand for their premium standard of early childhood education.

Their philosophy is inspired by the globally acclaimed Reggio Emilia approach to early education which places significant emphasis on the importance of family and community and which has the premise that ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ at the heart of everything it does.

This emphasis on involving family and community in order to give children the best possible care and education is activated and strengthened in many, many different ways at the centres. But no two centres are the same. Just as each community where the centres are located is unique, each Nido Early School is different and caters for the diverse and ever-evolving needs of children and families.

Top Tips to Become a Grandmaster

Adelaide, South Australia, 2018-Apr-29 — /EPR Network/ — Becoming a Grandmaster is a coveted dream for all chess enthusiasts around the world, but not all of them can make it. Successful coach and popular author Mato Jelic has recently discussed how to become a Grandmaster.

Mato Jelic, a highly experienced professional chess coach and the author or two chess books, has recently shared useful tips to help chess enthusiasts in their pursuit to become a Grandmaster. Mato is the founder of one of the world’s most popular YouTube channels related to chess, through which he offers free online chess lessons.

The World Chess Federation (FIDE) has its own set of guidelines and requirements for becoming a Grandmaster. The players must attend official FIDE tournaments and clinch top positions on at least three occasions to qualify for the process. They should continue to attend such competitions known as norms, until their score reaches the 2,500 mark.

Improving his or her chess skills is undoubtedly the foremost requirement for anyone to become a Grandmaster. According to Mato, this can be accomplished by following the tips mentioned below.

  • Learning the tactics: These are the move sequences that can put a player in an advantageous situation and defend or capture pieces. Forks, discovered attacks, and pinning are some of the most important tactics in the game of chess.
  • Knowledge of strategies: Once a player reaches the advanced level, they must have a core strategy for each match. Mato also stresses on the importance of strategies such as Nimzo Defense, Sicilian Defense, spacing strategies, and many others.
  • Proper execution of endgame situations: A clever endgame strategy is extremely important because a poor endgame can very easily spoil all the previous good work.
  • Regular practise: Any aspiring Grandmaster must practice as often as possible against top level players with a thorough understanding of the advanced tactics and strategies. Mato recommends joining a chess club or popular chess sites such as Chess.com

In addition to mastering chess skills, Mato mentions that the different personality traits of an individual can make a serious impact on his or her chances of becoming a Grandmaster. “Ultimately, Passion, inherent talent, competitiveness, discipline, along with a supportive environment, can make all the difference between success and failure,” he says.

A resident of Adelaide, South Australia, Mato is the founder of Chess School SA, a training school that offers chess classes throughout the Adelaide Metro and across the Country Schools in South Australia. He also runs many popular training programs for kids.
