Idris Busari's insight:
"In the digital currency world, people love to talk about the “killer app,” a use for the technology that would bring it truly mainstream and compel the people who are dubious about Bitcoin to buy in. Many are still waiting for it, and say bitcoin needs it to succeed in the long run. Ned Scott believes he’s got it. 

Scott is the cofounder and CEO of Steemit, a social network that runs on a new cryptocurrency called steem. Scott, a former analyst at food-industry private equity firm Gellert Group, and Dan Larimer, founder of BitShares, launched the network and the currency in April. Since that time, its market cap has ballooned from $2,000 to $300 million. The platform is very young, and has its problems, but it shows impressive potential."--- Yahoo Finance

Meet the Brit-Ghanaian entrepreneur taking over travel

Meet the Brit-Ghanaian entrepreneur taking over travel | ResQ Records | Midwest Music and Entertainment, Indiana, USA | Scoop.it
BRITISH/GHANIAN entrepreneur Jeffrey Boateng is the founder of Ghana Escapes – a holiday package service with a twist. With a burning passion to celebrate his Ghanaian heritage, Boateng, right, quickly began encouraging UK-based African- Caribbeans to travel to Ghana over the festive period to reconnect with its culture.
Idris Busari's insight:
What Ghana Escapes identified five years ago, was the opportunity to take tourists to Ghana to experience every aspect of the country, including tourism and its historical landmarks, nightlife, investment opportunities, working with the less privileged, traditional restaurants and places to stay. Despite both of my parents being from Ghana and visiting there as a youth, I never knew much about the country. To my surprise neither did many of my family and friends my age, who were also from Ghana.

MIT Just Created Living Plants That Glow Like A Lamp, And Could Grow Glowing Trees To Replace Streetlights

MIT Just Created Living Plants That Glow Like A Lamp, And Could Grow Glowing Trees To Replace Streetlights | ResQ Records | Midwest Music and Entertainment, Indiana, USA | Scoop.it
Roads of the future could be lit by glowing trees instead of streetlamps, thanks to a breakthrough in creating bioluminescent plants. Experts injected specialized nanoparticles into the leaves of a watercress plant, which caused it to give off a dim light for nearly four hours. This could solve lots of problems.
Idris Busari's insight:
The chemical involved, which produced enough light to read a book by, is the same as is used by fireflies to create their characteristic shine. To create their glowing plants, engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) turned to an enzyme called luciferase. Luciferase acts on a molecule called luciferin, causing it to emit light.

Music ends for longtime South Bend disc jockey, Harold Palmer

Music ends for longtime South Bend disc jockey, Harold Palmer | ResQ Records | Midwest Music and Entertainment, Indiana, USA | Scoop.it
Harold Palmer kept the party bumpin' for nearly three decades
Idris Busari's insight:
His parents helped out when he got his first official paying gig. Palmer said he made $35 to DJ a party on the southeast side back in 1992. The hot song at that time was “Treat ‘Em Right,” by rapper Chubb Rock. “That used to get the party going.” Now, after two-plus decades, Palmer said, it’s time for him to get out of the business despite the fact that business is good. Why? “Well, the community is changing and the crowd is getting younger,” he said. “And I feel like I’m too old to be doing that young music.”

A plan to build an immigration detention facility in Elkhart County has drawn opposition.Thursday, those against it took their concerns to a county commissioner.People say they're concerned the detention center will drive away a large portion of the popula
Idris Busari's insight:
"There is growing awareness in the community that this proposal exists. There is growing awareness of what it will do, but more importantly there is a growing awareness of why this will be a very negative thing to come to Elkhart County," said Richard Aguirre, coalition co-coordinator. Some came to learn more about the proposal and figure out the pros and cons if it were to come. "I'd like to learn more about it. I've heard reports that this kind of thing discourages immigrants from staying in the area. Elkhart County benefits greatly from having people, a very diverse workforce, and I think a lot of research should be done before anything is considered," said Carl Rutt, attended the meeting. The plan is on hold for 30 days so Core Civic, the private prison firm that wants to build the facility, can prepare before going before a review committee. Opponents are using those 30 days to try and block it permanently.

Idris Busari's insight:
In the last few hours of the legislative session the Indiana State Senate and House passed a bill to keep CBD Oil legal to buy and sell in the Hoosier State. Republican State Senator Jim Tomes of Wadesville, IN championed this bill all the way through the process. "It's been a long road and very trying road in sometimes. It'll be nice to have an end to it," says Adele’s Naturally store manager Jordan Fink. One more step through Governor Holcomb is all it takes now that the Indiana state senate voted 36-11 and the house voted 97 to zero to keep CBD oil legal to buy and sell in the Hoosier state.

Governor Holcomb sat down with NewsChannel 15's Heather Herron to discuss the drug epidemic, legalizing marijuana, and toll roads.
Idris Busari's insight:
Governor Holcomb: It’s been a year of progress and that’s always fulfilling and satisfying. And it’s been a – self-described but I’ve heard others say – first legislative session being one that was collaborative and substantive and I concur. And we set out very early and said everyone knows that door is open 24/7, my cell phone is with me, not just staff, and it’s on 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We just set out not be a pest, but you can’t over-communicate with us. We want more information, more involvement. If you’ve got a better idea, if you have a way to improve what we’re trying to do, bring it. I want you to be part of this. I want to build the state of Indiana together and it seems to be working. And sure we have our challenges, but that gives us confidence to take on those challenges. So I think we have the will and the courage, and fortunately in the state of Indiana we have the means to do it.
