The 21st Century Business Herald reported that China is conducting large-scale internal testing of a digital wallet application at four major state-run commercial banks: the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, the Bank of Agriculture, the Bank of China, and China Construction Bank.
Banking sources said that, in early August, employees at these banks in Shenzhen started internally testing the app to transfer money and make payments.  Other banking sources said that tests involve payments of CCP membership dues, union fees, and other expenses.
Tests are being conducted at their institutions.
While tests are primarily conducted in Shenzhen, the app is not available for public download.
To register the app, one needs to open a digital wallet in the four major banks.
The digital wallets are linked to the individual’s bank accounts and one can recharge funds into the wallet using online banking or credit cards.
On August 3, 2020, the central bank.

The People’s Bank of China (PBOC)

said the country should actively and steadily promote the development of a state digital currency. PBOC has led the development of the digital currency in an effort to promote the RMB as an international currency and to reduce dependence on the U.S.
dollar.
The digital currency is still in the internal R&D and testing stage under high confidentiality.  There is little information about a launch timetable.

If your kids enjoy outdoor activities, .

Then Switzerland is the ideal place to send them this summer

Adam Brook, the COO of Les Elfes.

Spoke in an interview on World Radio Switzerland

where he gave comprehensive details about Les Elfes.     Understanding Les Elfes    Les Elfes has been operating since 1987.
It started with two bedrooms in a rented chalet and ten beds.
Today, Les Elfes has 146 beds.
While it has evolved over the years, it still offers exceptional services.
Whether you want to go for day camps or prefer sleep away summer camps, .

You will get these services at Les Elfes
Les Elfes camp attracts kids from various parts of the world

Adam says that up to 95% of kids who visit the Les-Elfes come from both overseas and Switzerland.
Day camps can be ideal for local kids.
However, if you are sending your kids from overseas, .

Adam recommends a sleep away camp where they can remain for two or more weeks

Such will allow them sufficient time to enjoy the great outdoor activities that Les Elfes has to offer.     How a standard day at Les Elfes Looks Like        If the kids are camping for two or more weeks, they will need various activities to keep them occupied.
According to Adam, the staff at the camp monitors the kids round the clock to guarantee them safety.
However, they wake the kids up at 7.30 am and have an hour to prepare before going for breakfast.
Language lessons at the camp start at 9.00 am, and students can choose from the various languages on offer.
These are; Mandarin, French, German, Spanish, and English.
Classes run for two hours but can also extend to three hours, especially for kids who are interested in intensive lessons.
After the language lessons, kids proceed for lunch from 01.00 pm.
The lunch venue depends on the lined up activities for the day.
For example, if the kids will be going bird watching, swimming, or even cycling in the afternoon, the camp can organize a picnic lunch.
Other structured outdoor activities that kids can engage in include rock climbing, mountain biking, and hiking.
There is a wide range of water sports activities like banana boating.
Afternoon activities end at between 05.00 pm and 05.30 pm in the evening.
A Wide Range of Activities        At Les Elfes, there is a pitch where kids can play football and volleyball.
There is also a horse running center onsite.
Once they get back to the camp in the evening, some kids prefer relaxing.
However, others choose to engage in one of the activities Les Elfes offers before dinner time.     Dinner can be a barbecue in the woods at the camp or some other fun setting.
Evening activities begin at 8.00 O’clock before young campers can proceed to sleep.
The older campers don’t go to sleep until much later in the evening.
Evening activities hardly include watching movies.
The supervisors at Les Elfes try as much as they can to keep the kids away from the screen.
Many times campers engage in problem-solving quizzes in a bid to keep them as occupied as possible.     How has Covid-19 Affected Les Elfes.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way Les Elfes operates

In the past, parents dropping their kids would remain at the camp mingling for long periods.
Currently, .

Adam says they are limiting the number of people visiting the camp

Everyone has to produce a medical certificate and get checked before they are allowed in.
There is a temperature monitoring machine at the reception.
Kids and staff members have their temperatures taken and recorded every single day.

Adam says the camp has always had strict hygiene practices from the beginning

However, they are providing hand sanitizers for every child and ensuring they understand how to use them.
Cleaning staff will go to every room daily to disinfect everything thoroughly.
Sitting arrangement during meal times has also changed to observe laid down social distancing guidelines.
Abiding by social distancing rules during activities can be a difficult task, especially when dealing with kids.
However, the camp organizers strive to ensure that kids are safe.

Les Elfes will make Your Kids Summer Memorable     Located in Verbier

Les Elfes is a must-visit summer camp.
Book your kid a slot today to ensure they do not miss out on the fun..

A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about a recent CSI:Cyber episode in which a hospital is attacked by a hacker via a vulnerable Smart TV connected to the hospital’s Wi-Fi.
It’s now been reported that the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center is being held to ransom for $3.6 million following a ransomware attack, with systems critical to CT scans, laboratory, and pharmacy work forced offline and patients having to drive for up to an hour just to collect lab tests.
Life, it seems, is imitating art.
At the time of writing, the hospital’s network had been offline for over a week while law enforcers attempt to identify the attackers.  Staff are grappling with the loss of email, and are having to revert to pen and paper for handling patient records.
The incident highlights the vulnerability of organizations of all types to ransomware attacks, which can bring day-to-day operations to a standstill.
As my colleague, Erik Barnett recently blogged, ransomware attacks are on the rise, and are carried out when a malicious piece of malware gets into a network and encrypts all the files.
It leaves behind only an HTML message demanding payment in return for decryption of the information.  In many cases, there is little that can be done other than pay the ransom and hope the criminals will fulfill their end of the deal.
However, there are some straightforward principles that all organizations, large or small, public or private sector, can put in place to help mitigate the risk of a damaging ransomware attack:  Network segmentation, which can contain the ransomware and prevent it from proliferating across the network and accessing networks which handle sensitive data.
Access management, which ensures that only essential personnel have access to different areas of the network, and works with segmentation to silo off and protect different areas.
Awareness of insider threats – whether intentionally as part of a malicious strategy or accidentally as the result of a spear phishing attack, employees are often responsible for allowing ransomware into a network.
Mitigating this involves training staff to recognize social engineering tactics, and keeping a close eye out for dissatisfied staff.
Take data offline when not constantly used, to reduce the targets available.
Install security applications such as anti-malware/virus tools and host intrusion prevention.
Such applications are not watertight – antivirus software, for example, can only protect against a bank of known malware – but they can protect against many of the most likely attackers.
Whitelisting is also an option.
A successful ransomware attack can be hugely disruptive, costly and time-consuming to respond to, not to mention enormously damaging to reputation and the business bottom line.
Getting these basic principles in place could be a life-saving move.
–> Update 2/18.
Last night hospital officials paid the $17,000 ransom in order to get back control of their network.
While clearly no-where near the $3.4M asking price, I guess this proves that crime pays.
Lets hope the attackers get caught soon.

Wham-O used chemistry to create Magic Sand—a toy substance that defied nature
BENEATH THE SURFACE    Magic Sand was the sand that refused to get wet

At first glance, it looked and acted much like regular beach sand, with a granular and free-flowing texture.
But in water, Magic Sand displayed its … well, its magic … by repelling water.
Children could mold and build structures that held their shape underwater but disintegrated as soon as they were scooped out.
Miraculously.

As soon as Magic Sand contacted air

it dried instantly.
Teachers loved Magic Sand because it checked all the boxes for science class experiments; parents loved it because it was non-toxic and didn’t make a gloppy mess.
WEIRD SCIENCE    While Magic Sand seemed to have emerged from magician David Copperfield’s playbook, there was good science behind the hocus-pocus.
The secret was in a coating of trimethylhydroxysilane—a silicon-based substance that made Magic Sand water-repellent.

Tropical Storm Fay  - NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 500 AM EDT Sat Jul 11, 2020 (see Friday video below) The system has lacked significant organized deep convection for some time now, and therefore it has degenerated into a post-tropical low-pressure system.
The maximum sustained winds are estimated, perhaps generously, at 30 kt over the Atlantic waters well to the southeast of the center.
Continued weakening is likely, and the cyclone should dissipate over eastern Canada by late Sunday.
The low is moving just east of due north or around 010/15 kt.
Over the next day or so, the system should continue to move between a mid-level ridge over the northwestern Atlantic and a trough near the Great Lakes until it loses its identity.
This is the last advisory on this system.
FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS  INIT  11/0900Z 42.4N  73.9W   30 KT  35 MPH - Depression (ENE Surprise, NY)  12H  11/1800Z 45.3N  72.9W   25 KT  30 MPH - Depression (ENE Farnham, QB Canada)  24H  12/0600Z 49.0N  70.5W   25 KT  30 MPH - Low (ENE Lac Brazzai, QB Canada)  36H  12/1800Z 52.5N  67.0W   20 KT  25 MPH - Low (ENE Fire Lakem QB Canada)  48H  13/0600Z...DISSIPATED NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 1100 PM EDT Thu Jul 09, 2020  Satellite imagery and surface observations indicate that the circulation center of Fay is elongated northeast-southwest, with satellite and radar data showing a strong convective cluster at the northeastern end of the elongation.
There have been no observations near the center during the past few hours, and the initial intensity is held at 40 kt based mainly on continuity from the previous advisory.
An Air Force reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is currently enroute to investigate Fay.
Due to the elongated center and the possibility the center is trying to re-form near the convection, the initial motion is a somewhat uncertain 010/7.
There is no change to the forecast philosophy from the previous advisory, and essentially no change to the forecast track.
Fay is expected to move generally northward between a high-pressure ridge over the western Atlantic and an approaching mid-latitude trough for 24-36 h, followed by a turn toward the north-northeast until dissipation between 60-72 h.
The guidance is in generally good agreement with this scenario, and the new forecast lies close to the various consensus models.
Fay is currently over the Gulf Stream and within an area of light to moderate westerly shear caused by an upper-level trough to its west and southwest.
This is producing an environment that should allow a little strengthening for the next 12-24 h.
After that, the storm should weaken as it passes over cooler waters north of the Gulf Stream, followed by landfall over the northeastern United States.
The new intensity forecast follows the trend of the previous forecast in calling for extratropical transition between 48-60 h and dissipation shortly thereafter.
Key Messages:   1.
Fay is expected to produce 3 to 5 inches of rain with isolated totals of 8 inches along and near the track across the mid-Atlantic states into southeast New York and southern New England.
These rains may result in flash flooding where the heaviest amounts occur.
Widespread river flooding is not expected at this time.
2.
Tropical storm conditions are expected along portions of the mid-Atlantic and northeast coast Friday and Friday night, and a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the coasts of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, including Long Island.

Deep convection is displaced well to the north and southeast of the center as water vapor imagery shows dry air being wrapped into the circulation.
The Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft investigating Fay this morning found that the pressure has fallen to around 999 mb, and based on a blend of the SFMR peak winds of 45 kt and a 925-mb peak flight level wind of 65 kt, the initial intensity is set to 50 kt for this advisory.
The new NHC intensity forecast is similar to the previous one.
Little change in strength is expected before Fay's center moves inland later today or this evening, with weakening expected after that time.
While a 48-h forecast point is provided, most of the models show the vortex dissipating by that time.
The initial motion estimate is 005/10.
Fay will be steered generally northward and north-northeastward until dissipation between a mid-level ridge over the western Atlantic and an approaching shortwave trough moving across the Great Lakes.
Little change was made to the NHC track forecast, which lies close to the previous one and is near the middle of the guidance envelope.
Users should not place too much emphasis on the exact track of the center of Fay, as heavy rainfall and strong winds will continue to affect areas well away from the cyclone's center.
Key Messages:   1.
Heavy rainfall from Delaware northward into New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, southeast New York, and southern New England may result in flash flooding and urban flooding in areas with poor drainage.
Widespread river flooding is not expected at this time.
2.
Tropical storm conditions will continue to spread northward across portions of the mid-Atlantic and northeast coast today and tonight, and a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the coasts of Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut, including Long Island.

An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft investigating the disturbance this afternoon confirmed that the center is located near the edge of the primary convective mass, and that the system is producing an area of 35-40 kt winds to the east and southeast of the center.
Based on these observations, the system is classified as a tropical storm with an initial intensity of 40 kt.
Fay is located over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream and within an area of light to moderate westerly shear.
These environmental conditions could allow for slight strengthening tonight and Friday.
After that time, the circulation is forecast to interact with the mid-Atlantic coast and will be passing over cooler waters north of the Gulf Stream, likely limiting any further intensification.
Fay should weakening quickly once it moves inland Friday night or Saturday.
Since a new center has recently formed, the initial motion is a highly uncertain 360/6 kt.
Fay is expected to move generally northward between a high pressure ridge over the western Atlantic and an approaching mid-latitude trough.
The 12Z dynamical model guidance has come into much better agreement on a track very close to the U.S.
mid-Atlantic coast.
With the recent center reformation to the northeast, the tracker guidance from the dynamical models shows a track farther offshore than the model fields imply.
As a result, the NHC track lies along the left side of the guidance envelope but it is not as far west as what is indicated in the model fields.
The NHC track and intensity forecast has required the issuance of a Tropical Storm Warning for a portion of the U.S.
coast from the mid-Atlantic states to southern New England.

The thunderstorm activity is currently located well east and northeast of the low's center, but only a small increase in organization or a reformation of the center closer to the thunderstorm activity could result in the formation of a tropical or subtropical cyclone later today or tonight.
The low is expected to move northeastward or north-northeastward near or just offshore of the North Carolina Outer Banks later today and then along the mid-Atlantic coast tonight through Friday night.
Regardless of development, the system is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall that could cause some flash flooding across portions of eastern North Carolina, the coastal mid-Atlantic, and southern New England during the next few days.

Op zoek naar tips en ideeën voor bijzondere overnachtingen.
Dan zit je hier goed.
In dit artikel geven jou inspiratie voor een bijzondere overnachting.
We pakken, om het overzichtelijk te houden, de top 4 populairste thema's als het gaat om bijzonder overnachten: bijzondere romantische overnachting, bijzonder overnachten in boomhut, bijzondere overnachtingen met kind en bijzondere overnachting aan zee.
Haal er je inspiratie uit.

Bijzondere romantische overnachting Romantiek en bijzonderheid vullen elkaar aan

Hoe bijzonderder de nacht met jouw partner, hoe romantischer.
En hoe romantischer de nacht, hoe bijzonderder.
Dus, voor dat ene speciale weekendje of weekje wil je natuurlijk wel iets origineels ondernemen.
Gelukkig bestaan er vele mogelijkheden voor bijzondere en romantische overnachtingen.
Denk er bijvoorbeeld aan om een knus huisje in de natuur te boeken.
Zien jullie jezelf al genieten van een glaasje wijn in het avondzonnetje op de veranda van jullie huisje midden in het bos, of aan het meer… Heel fijn.
Ook een overnachting in een luxe ingerichte authentieke yurt (een Mongoolse nomandentent) is superromantisch en bijzonder.
Zijn jullie avontuurlijke types.
Dan is een bijzondere romantische overnachting in een oud vliegtuig(!) (Hotel Mill) iets voor jullie.
Met het ‘droomarrangement' wordt jullie nachtje op en top romantisch.
Ook een erg goed idee: romantisch overnachten op de SS Rotterdam in een superluxe hotelkamer met Manhattan thema.
Bijzonder overnachten in boomhut Een overnachting in een boomhut staat garant voor een bijzondere overnachting.
In Nederland (of dicht bij de Nederlandse grens) zijn er heel wat plekken waar je dit kan doen.
En vaak zijn dit nog eens luxe boomhutten ook, ook wel ‘boomvilla's' genoemd.
Soms kan je er met tot wel 8 personen in slapen.
Er zijn talloze campings (of glampings) die deze  boomhutten aanbieden.
Vaak zijn dit campings midden in de natuur.

Zo vind je er bijvoorbeeld veel in Drenthe
Het is ook een optie om via Airbnb een boomhut te boeken
Maar ook vind je dergelijke boomhutten in parken als Beekse Bergen

Bijzonder overnachten in een boomhut, dat wil jij eens meemaken.
Bijzondere overnachtingen met kind Wie zegt dat je niet bijzonder kan overnachten met kinderen.
Er zijn talloze bijzondere én kindvriendelijke accomodaties die het hele gezin een onvergetelijke overnachting bezorgen.
Wat denk je van een overnachting in een tipi tent, safaritent, huisje in de duinen.

Oud treinstel (op Station Amsterdam Sloterdijk) of zelfs in een hobbitwoning (jazeker

dit kan op Camping Geversduin!).

Heel bijzonder én superleuk voor de kids

Uiteraard is een bijzondere overnachting in boomhut (in de alinea hierboven) ook heel leuk met kinderen.
Echter, let er wel op dat de boomhut kindvriendelijk is.
Je wilt natuurlijk niet dat je kind uit de boom kan vallen.
Kortom, bijzonder overnachten met kinderen kan dus maar al te goed.

Bijzondere overnachting aan zee Het zeegebied in Nederland is prachtig

dus een overnachting aan zee wordt al snel bijzonder.
Toch is het leuker om te kiezen voor een overnachting die nét wat bijzonderder is.
En gelukkig zijn hier vele opties voor.
Denk maar aan een luxe overnachting in een prachtig mooi strandpaviljoen (Beachrooms Zandpaviljoen Pier 7), een klassieke Amerikaanse airstream (caravan) op Texel of in een luxe suite op de Pier in Scheveningen.
Of kies voor een hotel met uniek design aan zee, .

Zoals bijvoorbeeld Hotel Tien Torens of Poort Beach Hotel

Deze hotels hebben een waanzinnige uitstraling.

Bijzondere overnachtingen aan zee genoeg

Voor wat voor bijzondere overnachting ga jij.

Een bijzondere romantische overnachting

een bijzondere overnachting in boomhut, een bijzondere overnachting met kind of een bijzondere overnachting aan zee.
Nog meer inspiratie nodig.

On the week of the late Jamaican reggae icon Bob Marley’s birthday

it has been announced that his daughter – fashion designer Cedella Marley – will design the PUMA Jamaican Track and Field team’s Olympic, podium and ceremony wear for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The designs will be worn by the entire team, including three-time Jamaican Olympic gold medallist and fastest man in the world Usain Bolt – with Bolt endorsing the decision, saying that he can’t think of a better person to design Jamaica’s Olympic outfits than Cedella.
The collection will incorporate high tech fabrics and silhouettes engineered to enhance the performance of all the athletes.
