MINNEAPOLIS , MN, UNITED STATES , February 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Mars Generation (TMG) today announced that its co-founder, Abigail Harrison, will join Microsoft and NASA at an event at the Museum of Flight in Seattle on March 2, focused on making science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) opportunities accessible to all. Astronauts aboard the International Space Station, including Jessica Meir, will join via a live In-Flight Education Downlink to share their experiences of working and living in space, and to answer questions from attendees. The downlink for the event will be live streamed online for public viewing. Microsoft and NASA are hosting this event in response to the anticipated 9 million STEM jobs that will be created by 2022, and the desire to see women and minorities accessing those jobs.

The event will kick off Microsoft’s In Culture campaign to honor International Women’s Day on March 8th, and throughout Women’s History Month by recognizing women who are overcoming obstacles and breaking boundaries—with the goal of encouraging young women and girls to pursue their goals without giving up. Harrison, known online as Astronaut Abby, is a leader in STEM who inspires the future by encouraging people of all backgrounds to pursue big dreams.

“Women and people of color are significantly underrepresented in STEM careers and in the pathways that lead to those careers,” said Harrison. “I fiercely believe that we will close that gap, and I am thrilled to be a part of the movement that will do it. Giving young people access to people like astronaut Jessica Meir and the information that she’ll share during this event, can help keep their minds open to the possibilities of what they can do themselves.”

Microsoft is sponsoring Harrison’s attendance at the event as she is known for using her leadership and widespread global influence to increase focus on space exploration as vital to the future of humankind. She has also been vocal about the need for people of all backgrounds to have a seat at the table, and advocates tirelessly for the importance of diverse perspectives being represented in STEM and beyond.

America: Rome is Safe and Open for Business

Coronavirus has been deadly but the effects of media-induced hysteria surrounding it, has been more devastating to the tourism sector of the Italian economy.

ROME, RM, ITALY, February 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — ROME — Information is critical to a free society but misinformation, when spread rapidly, can also have dire consequences. The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has been deadly but the effects of media-induced hysteria surrounding it, in some respects, has been even more devastating – especially to the tourism sector which is vital to the Italian economy. However, the fact remains, Rome, as a destination, is safe and remains open for business.

Rome mayor Virginia Raggi and Lazio Region president Nicola Zingaretti have both stressed the fact that there is no Coronavirus emergency in the capital city of Italy. Yet the sharp rise in tourist cancellations and drop in bookings has occurred – despite the fact that there is no Coronavirus emergency in Rome according to Raggi.

While the Coronavirus virus has mainly been concentrated in the north near Milan, it’s Rome's tourist industry that has suffered the most.

“This is the first time in the 30-years since I have been in the travel industry, where Americans have canceled tours like this because of fear from a virus. Yet the rest of the world, while in lesser quantities, still continues to book tours here for the upcoming season,” says, Therese Billman, manager, Romaround Tours.

Bookings are also down 60-70 percent in March and April with bookings "sharply down" up to June, according to trade associations Assoturismo Confesercenti Roma e Lazio and Fiavet Lazio

Roberto Paolini, tour guide with Rome Live Tours, says, “We have seen a decline in American tourists as of the last week here at the Coloseo but it’s Rome … people are resilient – they are still enjoying their wine and food in outdoor cafes and restaurants and enjoying our beautiful, historic city as always.”

However, the effect of cancelled hotel reservations, coupled with numerous cancelled events, has so far led to the loss of €1.5 billion to the tourism sector in Rome and Lazio, according to Stefano Fiori, president of the tourism section of Unindustria, quoted in Corriere della Sera.

“Some US-based news reporting has been misleading regarding the Coronavirus in Rome and that has caused confusion – which has led to would-be tourists canceling their travel plans. Rome now has zero active Coronavirus cases and of the three mild cases confirmed, all have fully recovered. It’s time for potential visitors to be assured that Rome is safe and still a great place to visit today,” says Scott Spinucci, a media communications veteran of the United States, and now a spokesman for Rome-based 7 Hills Tours.

Italian economic minister, Dario Franceschini, announced today that he is hopeful domestic tourism will resume and will work to return international tourism flow (to seasonal norms).

According to data reported by 2019, travel and tourism contributed 237.8 billion euros to the Italian gross domestic product (GDP).

Safcoin, Africa's own cryptocurrency launches Africa’s first blockchain-powered freelance jobs marketplace

SAFCOIN, Africa's own crypto, has launched Africa’s first blockchain-powered micro jobs platform, connecting businesses and workers across Africa, for free.

MOSSEL BAY, WESTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA, February 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — SAFCOIN launches Africa’s first blockchain-powered freelance jobs marketplace MobiJobs.Africa connects gig workers and businesses across Africa, for free.

SAFCOIN, an exclusive African cryptocurrency, has launched Africa’s first blockchain-powered micro jobs platform, aimed at connecting businesses and gig economy workers across Africa, for free.

MobiJobs.Africa lets start-ups and small to medium-sized businesses list jobs, search freelancer profiles, and establish an online presence without set-up, hosting, or development costs. It also lets freelancers market their skills, build their experience, and “buy” listed jobs, even if they don’t have a bank account. There are no joining, account, or transaction fees, and jobs are paid for in SAFCOIN cryptocurrency.

Youth empowerment

In the fourth quarter of 2019, over 40% of South Africa’s youth, aged between 15 and 34, were unemployed, and 13.4 million youth in Africa do not have jobs.

Now, technology is enabling the growth of the freelance, or “gig” economy, with more people taking on short-term, flexible tasks to make money. In South Africa, 3.9 million people were in temporary employment in 2018, up from 2.6 million in 2017. In Africa, nearly 86% of employment is informal.

MobiJobs aims to empower more Africans to access global work opportunities, grow their experience, and sell their skills and talent online. All they need is a mobile phone or laptop and connectivity.

Digitally and financially empowered

Jobseekers in Africa have, until now, been restricted from participating in digital shared labour platforms like MobiJobs because they had little or no access to bank accounts. In fact, around 1.7 billion, or 62% of sub-Saharan Africans, are unbanked.

Those that do have bank accounts pay high transaction, pay-out, and commission fees, which eats into their freelance earnings.

MobiJobs uses blockchain technology to eliminate banking fees. Powered by SAFCOIN cryptocurrency, it facilitates an easy, secure payment process between individuals and businesses through the SAFPay gateway. Payment is secured before the service provider begins the job, and is released once the job is marked as completed.

Through the MobiJobs Workdesk, freelancers can manage their jobs, advertise their skills, communicate with clients, and rate their experience.

Neil Ferreira, CEO of SAFCOIN, says: “Our goal with MobiJobs is to help individuals in Africa to take their skills and talents global, and to empower small businesses to tap into a global skills pool, as and when they need to. Through the platform, users can gain experience, build their internship hours while studying, ask for testimonials from businesses they’ve completed tasks for, and build relationships with companies across Africa. All this via a free cryptocurrency payment gateway that ensures they get paid quickly and securely, with zero transaction charges.”

Taking Africa into the Fourth Industrial Revolution

The Fourth Industrial Revolution has resulted in thousands of job losses as technology increasingly takes on roles traditionally performed by humans. But the benefit is that the same technology that drives this revolution can also empower individuals to access a global jobs marketplace and opportunities in less-penetrated e-commerce markets.

MasterCard predicts that African e-commerce may generate over $500 billion a year by 2030, equivalent to nearly 10% of GDP, and the World Economic Forum says e-commerce will generate three million new jobs in Africa by 2025.

“Combining cryptocurrency and the blockchain with e-commerce is a huge breakthrough for the industry. Adoption of cryptocurrency across Africa is increasing steadily and usage is arguably the highest among emerging markets,” says Ferreira.

“Africa is evolving into the Fourth Industrial Revolution and we’re proud to be at the forefront, creating awareness, educating people, and connecting the youth and businesses through blockchain and cryptocurrency-powered platforms like SAFCOIN and MobiJobs.”

About SAFCOIN

SAFCOIN is a cryptocurrency founded by Africans, for Africans. Launched on 13 December 2018, following a successful ICO between July and October 2018, SAFCOIN is now available in South Africa, Botswana, Uganda, and Nigeria, for Fiat deposits, transactions, and withdrawals.

It aims to promote social and economic growth across the continent, by becoming the chosen source of trading currency across Africa, through e-commerce payments and remittances.

SAFCOIN supports a wide range of payment methods.

The National Space Society Mourns the Passing of Freeman Dyson

Freeman Dyson speaking at the National Space Society’s International Space Development Conference® in 2018. Credit: NSS/Keith Zacharski

Long-Serving Member of the NSS Board of Governors and Recipient of the Robert A. Heinlein and Gerard K. O’Neil Memorial Awards

We laud the enormous contributions Mr. Dyson made towards advancing humanity’s journey into space. He was an extraordinary dreamer and shaper of things to come…”

— Karlton Johnson, Chairman of the NSS Board of Governors

WASHINGTON, D.C., US, February 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Space Society (NSS) mourns the loss of one of its own, Mr. Freeman Dyson. Dyson was an iconic figure in academia and the space profession, as well as a brilliant theoretical physicist, mathematician, and visionary. He passed away early on February 28 at the age of 96.

"Today, our profession has lost one of the most remarkable minds of all time”, said Karlton Johnson, Chairman of the NSS Board of Governors. “I grew up reading about Mr. Dyson as a young adult and had the opportunity to meet him at our 2018 International Space Development Conference® where he gave a remarkable keynote address. He was a long-standing member of our Board of Governors and we laud the enormous contributions he made towards advancing humanity’s journey into space. Mr. Dyson was an extraordinary dreamer and shaper of things to come, and although we are diminished by his passing, each of us was enriched by his presence.”

Dyson received a BA in mathematics from Trinity College, Cambridge, after World War II, and worked toward a Doctorate in physics at Cornell. He held a post at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton from 1953 to 1994 where he remained a professor emeritus. Dyson is best known for his numerous and significant contributions in the fields of physics and mathematics, including support for and practical use of Feynman diagrams, which illustrated the behavior of subatomic particles. He furthered the understanding of quantum electrodynamics by unifying the three previously existing versions of that theory.

Dyson was known for his vast intellect as well as his thought-provoking concepts and had the ability to see beyond the horizon towards “what could be,” and to produce ideas that were guaranteed to stimulate both debate and action. His concept of the Dyson Sphere, a theoretical superstructure crafted around a star to harness its raw power and support a population’s energy need for millennia, became a classic theme in science fiction and was referenced in several novels and the "Star Trek" television franchise.

Dyson is survived by his wife, Imme, six children, and numerous grandchildren.

ABOUT THE NATIONAL SPACE SOCIETY AND ITS AWARDS
The Robert A. Heinlein Memorial Award honored the work Mr. Dyson performed as a ground-breaking physicist, mathematician, and thought leader in the science and space communities for decades. The Gerard K. O’Neill Memorial Award is given at infrequent intervals to exceptional individuals, which aptly describes Freeman Dyson.

The National Space Society was formed by a merger of the National Space Institute, founded in 1974 by NASA’s Wernher von Braun, father of the Saturn V rocket, and the L5 Society, founded in 1975, inspired by the pioneering work of Princeton physicist Gerard K. O’Neill.

ArcBlock To Increase Awareness of Blockchain and Decentralized Identity By Showcasing Real-World DApps

Build A Decentralized Identity App to support your secure currency, crypto payments, loyalty points and more

Use Decentralized Identity to manage send, or share digital currency

I DID IT is focused on showing what is possible right now and to let everyone immediately interact and use decentralized identity apps in the real-world.”

— Robert Mao

BELLEVUE, WA, USA, February 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — ArcBlock, a leading blockchain development platform, and decentralized identity provider has launched its new “I DID IT” initiative focused on real-world applications and interactive training for developers, businesses and users to experience decentralized identity first hand and learn about the features and benefits of blockchain technology. ArcBlock’s I DID IT campaign will cover a wide-range application use cases including self-sovereign identity, next-generation authentication, data portability, digital assets, digital currency, and asset exchanges and cross-chain transactions, and the ability to create, verify and issue verifiable claims and certificates easily.

“Over the next few weeks, we want every company to begin to see the value of giving back users control of their own data and to see how decentralized identity can be used to replace existing legacy systems and to create amazing new experiences for end-users. I DID IT is focused on showing what is possible right now and to enable everyone to immediately interact and use decentralized identity in the real-world. We also want developers and businesses to see the potential opportunities for their business by developing low-cost/high-reward applications that mitigate many of today’s security risks, remove the need to store personally identifiable information and to give everyone the ability to create new applications and economic models that enable new revenue streams,” said Robert Mao, CEO of ArcBlock.

This week, ArcBlock is showcasing a decentralized “Cash App.” Unlike previous generations of payment apps like PayPal or Venmo who required significant investment to develop, anyone today can build their own Cash App easily. Using the ArcBlock’s blockchain developer platform, it is very easy for any developer, company or store to level the playing field and create their own “Cash App” to support a secure currency, crypto-based payments, prepaid accounts, or loyalty points system similar to today’s leading companies like Starbucks, hotel chains and airlines. By using blockchain and decentralized identity in their app, these businesses can eliminate the more than 5% of the revenue they lose every year due to fraud as stated in the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners global study.

From a users' perspective, the “Cash App” experience showcases different currency-based activities that are already supported today using decentralized identity. Many people around the world aren’t carrying cash, are concerned about their privacy and are using alternative payment systems on their phones or using someone who is located in a different locale. ArcBlock’s Cash App scenario goes one step further by letting users utilize a secure wallet that enables them to approve every request and easily:

– Set up a wallet
– Add money and/or currency
– Make and receive payments
– Connect with other people
– Add and exchange additional assets or currencies
– And more

In this scenario, users can easily send and receive digital currencies, make payments for micro-content or to access media behind paywalls, exchange currencies for other assets and more.

ArcBlock is focused on bringing decentralized identity into the mainstream. Today, ArcBlock’s leading developer platform is unique in the blockchain industry and is the only blockchain development framework that includes integrated decentralized identity tools and capabilities to let developers add these features for their users using ArcBlock’s W3C compliant ABT:DID specification.

About ArcBlock
ArcBlock (https://www.arcblock.io) is transforming the way blockchain-enabled applications and services are developed, managed and deployed by re-imagining how these services are going to be created in the years ahead. ArcBlock is composed of a team of industry experts, developers, technologists, and leaders who are focused on creating successful outcomes by enabling teams and businesses to create blockchain-ready services around their needs. ArcBlock has created a powerful but easy to use development platform that utilizes the power of blockchain and decentralized identity in combination with cloud computing that developers and businesses to achieve their goals successfully.
