5 CBD Trends in 2020 that go Beyond Oil

Tired of all the wacky CBD ideas without a purpose? Seems like some companies are just hopping on the CBD wagon and creating literally anything with CBD. What’s the point of a CBD mascara? How many different versions of CBD oils are there? It personally burnt out in CBD gummies and CBD creams, so I’ve been looking for something new that actually makes sense. Well, thankfully, CBD isn’t falling victim to monotony but is instead kicking it up a notch for 2020. There are great new ideas that we’re going to fill you in on so you can be on the lookout for cool CBD trends that are innovative and brilliant! 

Makeup Line for Women of Color

We have seen that there isn’t much representation for people of color on the media, so it’s no surprise that there’s a shortage of minorities that are business owners or even simply the face for popular brands. Well there’s a treat in store for those who are interested in promoting diversity especially within the beauty industry. There’s talk of a few luxury skincare lines that will be specifically for women of color, by women of color. Isn’t that awesome?

 Pain Relief Products

So we already know that CBD is very well known for being a great natural pain reliever. We typically hear about tinctures and capsules, creams, etc. Coming to stores near you are a new range of innovative pain relief products that are CBD-based. To give you guys a better idea, there will be roll-on products that are specifically intended to treat menstrual cramps, aching feet, and headaches, and even essential oil and herb infused CBD full body rubs available. Those are sure to come in some divine scenes so keep an eye out for new and creative pain relief products to meet a variety of needs. 

Certificate of Authenticity

Another trend that’s in the rise is that consumers are demanding to know exactly what they’re getting in their CBD products. They want the full gamut; that means they would like to know up front how much CBS is in their product, whether it’s full spectrum (includes CBD, THC, terpenes, plant matter, etc.) or an isolate (purest form of only), and of the CBD is organic. This means that brands will have to start furnishing these certificates of authenticity to distinguish themselves from the rest. This is seemingly tedious from the outside looking in, but it’s actually a great idea because customers shouldn’t be at risk in case they have issues such as a THC sensitivity, legal restrictions in their state, or exposure to harmful toxins if the CBD wasn’t grown organically. 

CBD Pre-Rolls

Well we’ve done most everything you can do with CBD- eaten it, rubbed it on, drank it, etc.; but have you ever smoked it? Likely coming to a dispensary near you are CBD pre rolls. A pre roll is a set amount of CBD flowers that are rolled into a piece of cigarette paper and prepared prior to consumption. This is seemingly going to be a big hit amongst the CBD community because it can be a great way to stop smoking tobacco, and since it doesn’t have any THC in it, it won’t get you high. CBD is known to treat anxiety, pain, sleeplessness, and more, so being able to grab a pre roll to help mellow out will be huge. 

Brand-owned Hemp Farms

A lot of companies are expected to begin acquiring the necessary licensure to own and operate a hemp farm. That’s big because it’ll give brands the ability to have more control over their products. They can regulate the organic nature of the hemp growing process to ensure that they’re selling high quality CBD products to consumers. This may be a bit of a problem for farmers who have been counting on these companies to choose then as a reliable supplier, but hopefully it will also increase collaboration opportunities for brands and farmers alike. 

There’s a lot of big things happening in the CBD market and users should always do research on what’s new and whether it’s worthwhile. There’s a ton of good companies out there, but we recommend one on particular that has stellar customer service and a nice variety of CBD products.

How to get more out of your smart contract

Ethereum’s smart contracts promise to change the way we process sensitive data and money. The disadvantage here is that it is just a promise at the moment. This technology is too young to be trusted with everyday business tasks. The smart contracts themselves work like a Swiss watch, but each transaction costs the owner of the smart contract money in transaction fees. The size of the commission depends on the features and parameters of the transaction.

Before, there was no tool that had the functionality to obtain data on transactions done by smart contracts in a simple way. You had to collect all the transaction data manually, which wasn’t even the most tedious part of it. After that, you had to decrypt them. Gaster, the new open-source tool created by Exyte solves this problem.

Gaster helps smart contract owners gather data automatically and presents it in a human-readable format.

It shows you the information about how Smart Contract was used. It gives you unprocessed transaction data, for instance, which methods were called, and the cost of the transaction for the smart contract owner.

The owner can examine this data to find out:

* What are the most commonly used methods

* Which of those methods required the highest fee

* Which users create the highest load on the smart contract

Gaster collects all the essential data, saves it in one place, and provides many choices for setting the parameters of your smart contract.

 

For a person interested in numbers, Gaster provides useful information that helps save on Ethereum transaction fees.

Here are some examples of what you can learn about your smart contracts with Gaster:

  • The method costs over time. The resulting graph can help forecast future costs. Having this data, you can also determine the threshold values ​​of the cost changes for every method.
  • The distribution of costs by contract methods over time. You can use this graph to determine how often smart contact is used, hence how much money was spent on it.
  • The change in the average cost of smart contract methods over time. This graph allows you to track the use of methods and compare it with gas price data.
  • The gas price value position for a transaction. This graph allows you to adjust the gas price according to the methods to save on fees in the future. 

Gaster is an open-source tool. You can download it on GitHub:  https://github.com/exyte/gaster

pastedGraphic.png

Here are some things you can do with the information from Gaster:

Forecast future expenses. With the historical data on average fees of your smart contract methods, you can forecast future costs and set up preliminary thresholds. 

Discover which methods are the most expensive. By seeing the relative distribution of method costs over time, you can easily determine methods that are responsible for most of your expenses. 

Optimize gas costs. Gaster can show you data on the gas prices of each of your smart contract methods over time. This data can help you optimize gas prices in the future.

TS2 SPACE is supporting satellite Internet communication among ARCA’s partners for this first Google Lunar X Prize flight

These equipments will allow an optimum communication among ARCA’s partners for this first Google Lunar X Prize flight: The Romanian Navy, Air Force and Civil Air Traffic Control Centres. The Google Lunar X PRIZE is a $30 million international competition to safely land a robot on the surface of the Moon, travel 500 meters over the lunar surface, and send images and data back to the Earth.

Teams must be at least 90% privately funded and must be registered to compete by December 31, 2010. The first team to land on the Moon and complete the mission objectives will be awarded $20 million; the full first prize is available until December 31, 2012. After that date, the first prize will drop to $15 million. The second team to do so will be awarded $5 million. Another $5 million will awarded in bonus prizes. The final deadline for winning the prize is December 31, 2014.

On November 14th, 2009 ARCA made a launch attempt for the Helen rocket, from the Black Sea. The launch didn’t took place because the inflation arms twisted around the balloon. This happened due to the currents from the sea and some inappropriate procedures for folding the arms during the inflation process from the sea. The launch was delayed for 2010, from a location that will be later disclosed. The rocket will be named Helen 2 and the mission will be named Mission 4.

Helen 2 is an upgraded version of Helen. The goal is to implement more technical solutions that will later be used for the Haas rocket. Haas rocket will be used for the launch for the Moon, within the Google Lunar X Prize.

The main difference between Helen and Helen 2 is the usage of spherical fuel tanks instead of cylindrical ones, a solution that is implemented for Haas. Since this option will increase the aerodynamic drag, the launch altitude will be 16,000 m, instead of 14,000 m, as for Mission 3.

Sectigo Experiences Record Demand for Digital Identity Management as Enterprises Strengthen Remote Access and Business Continuity

ROSELAND, N.J., – May 21, 2020 – Sectigo has seen demand increase significantly for its cloud-based Certificate Manager solution as large enterprises seek better protection from service interruptions and vulnerabilities during the global pandemic. The company’s digital identity management platform is helping complex organizations apply enterprise-grade Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), automation, and no-touch authentication to quickly secure and maintain operations across dispersed organizations.

 

“In recent months, Sectigo has seen three times the inbound information requests from large enterprises seeking to automate, consolidate, and manage the digital identities of employees and endpoints across their organizations,” said Jonathan Skinner, CMO, Sectigo. “Digital certificates are the gold standard for ensuring identity. Across the globe, our teams are helping customers rapidly deploy PKI solutions that solve today’s authentication challenges while future-proofing their businesses for tomorrow.”

 

Digital Identity as the New Perimeter

 

Sectigo Certificate Manager, the heart of Sectigo’s Digital Identity Management Platform, delivers the automation, orchestration, and visibility required for a Zero Trust strategy. The platform’s unique cloud-based system offers compelling advantages over on-premise alternatives. Compatible with all popular devices, operating systems, protocols, and chipsets, Sectigo Certificate Manager provides visibility into certificates of all types through a single cloud-based solution.

CAPTION: Sectigo’s cloud-based digital identity platform enables peace of mind for complex organizations by using enterprise-grade PKI to manage authentication across websites, users, connected devices, email, and applications.

 

Enterprises have historically provided protection within a firewalled network architecture. However, this approach has evolved to accommodate complex environments with mobile devices, multi-cloud, DevOps, BYOD, IoT, and more, thus elevating digital identity as the new perimeter. In this modern organization, security teams often work toward a Zero Trust model where access and permissions are granted narrowly and as needed on a case-by-case basis to users, devices, and processes in the environment.

 

For Zero Trust to be effective, enterprises need a proven digital identity mechanism, driving demand for automated cloud-based management of digital certificates. The Sectigo Digital Identity Management Platform protects the Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) of the modern enterprise for all certificate use cases, including:

 

  • TLS / SSL certificates for websites, internal servers, and DevOps environments
  • Device and user certificates for easy-to-use, fool-proof access control
  • Mobile device certificates to control access for BYOD and company-assigned devices
  • S/MIME certificates to encrypt and authenticate email communication
  • IoT certificates for securing connected devices
  • Code signing certificates to ensure the integrity of all code running in an environment

 

Securing the Remote Workforce and Ensuring Business Continuity

 

More than ever, IT teams understand how digital identities fit into their secure, geographically dispersed architecture. Automating the discovery, issuance, and renewal of public certificates saves time for security and operations personnel and reduces enterprise risk. Sectigo’s automation platform can be instrumental when rapidly migrating people, processes, and data to WFH environments—limiting risk and burden to employees—by following three steps:

 

  • Replace passwords with user identity certificates — PKI-based identity certificates are the strongest form of identity and make life easier for employees, reducing the burden of remembering, updating, and managing passwords.

 

  • Replace multi-factor authentication with no-touch authentication — Unlike hardware-token multi-factor authentication (MFA), or SMS-based MFA, Sectigo digital certificates simplify the employee experience by easing the burden of security when a workforce is remote. Certificate-based authentication also offers the highest assurance that the people, devices, and processes are, in fact, legitimate.

 

  • Automate the issuance of all identity certificates — Automation provides benefits across the certificate lifecycle, enabling IT security teams to issue, revoke, and replace certificates quickly, reliably, and at scale, while alleviating their management burden.

 

The current pandemic is just one example of the risk organizations face when their normal work processes are disrupted. During the 2018 U.S. government shutdown, many employees who managed security maintenance were furloughed, resulting in sweeping outages. In a single week, as many as 130 federal websites and services went offline or assumed risk due to certificate expirations.

 

Organizations must protect against the danger of outdated certificates as business continuity is tied to the livelihood of employees now more than ever. Sectigo helps prevent certificate-related outages through a broad range of automation technologies, including Enrollment over Secure Transport (EST),

Secure Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP), and Automated Certificate Management Environment (ACME), which integrates with a wide range of web servers, load balancers, and other networking gear, as well as DevOps environments.

Russians set to launch into space by 2025

The culmination of scientific accomplishment is carried out in orbit. Although space technology, including wireless communications and navigational systems, support most of contemporary society, only a few nations can take spacecraft into orbit. The digital database records the development of intergalactic spaceship and the number of payloads launched into flight in 1957 during the first operational rocket flight. Satellites, orbital instruments, and crew spacecraft will be used in payloads. A lift-off can bear several payloads, even in other states.

As of 1976, Russia has never been on the moon but expects that it will take up its goal early. The country is on triple moon launches scheduled during the opening half of this season. Additionally, the latest talk of the present status of the project was provided by Vladimir Kolmykov, president of the Lavochkin Science and Development Association, the Roscosmos international space station division, which supervises zonal-planetary robotics. The plans would begin, where the Russian satellite project left. The current spacecraft are the Luna-25, Luna-26, and Luna-27, both members of the European Space Agency (ESA).
