NEW YORK, June 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bitmanu has steadily emerged as a preferred home business opportunity for many over the past year. This manufacturing company offers three highly efficient mining rigs capable of providing ROI within just a month. These high-power ASIC miners can be used even without any significant background in crypto.

While designing its miners, Bitmanu’s foremost priority was to deliver industry-leading hash rates. Many noted industry veterans have already accepted that the hash power offered by Bitmanu’s BM 1, BM 2, and BM Pro miners are unprecedented in the market. These hash rates allow Bitmanu users to quickly process transactions and earn rewards. Bitmanu also has its own private Bitstream, which means multiple coins can be mined using these rigs.

Unmatched Hash Power

Bitcoin 3900 TH/s 1220 TH/s 760 TH/s
Litecoin 400 GH/s 128 GH/s 80 GH/s
Dash 75 TH/s 25 TH/s 15 TH/s
Monero 32 MH/s 10 MH/s 6 MH/s

The high profitability of Bitmanu miners can be attributed to their high hash rates as well as energy efficiency. BM 1, BM 2, and BM Pro are viable as home business options because they can deliver top-notch mining performance with moderate power consumptions of just 650W, 850W, and 2200W respectively. The profit-making potential of these miners is miles ahead of any of their competitors.

Monthly Mining Profit

  BM Pro BM 2 BM 1
Bitcoin $7000 $2400 $2000
Litecoin $9500 $3200 $3000
Dash $26,000 $9000 $5000
Monero $22,000 $6400 $3800

*Calculation was done based on the current market price and mining difficulty

The popularity of Bitmanu is by no means limited to seasoned crypto miners. Many casual mining enthusiasts have also benefited from this home business opportunity because Bitmanu miners are delivered pre-configured, and can be used just by plugging them into a power socket. Also, these rigs are suitable for home use because they can operate optimally without generating any considerable amount of noise or heat.

To find out more about Bitmanu, please visit https://bitmanu.com/

About Bitmanu: Bitmanu is a manufacturing company created, owned, and managed by a team of investors and noted crypto industry experts dedicated to bringing the benefits of the latest technological innovations to the public. The company offers a stunning range of crypto miners that offer superfast returns on investment and can be set up and used by all regardless of their experience and knowledge.

EB5 Capital Celebrates the Closing of Hutchinson Island (JF38)

WASHINGTON, June 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, EB5 Capital announced the closing of its $40 million preferred equity investment in Daniel Corporation’s Hutchinson Island (JF38) apartment project, located in Savannah, Georgia.

EB5 Capital is making a $40 million preferred equity investment in Daniel Corporation’s 288-unit, Class A multifamily property located across the Savannah River from Historic Downtown Savannah. The project is near the Convention Center and The Westin Harbor Golf Resort and will consist of six residential buildings that are four stories in height with 462 parking spaces. Hutchinson Island (JF38) is scheduled to break ground imminently, and the first units are expected to be delivered in early 2025.

“Savannah has seen significant job growth and capital investment in recent years, following the increased economic activity at the Port of Savannah,” said Jonathan Mullen, EB5 Capital’s Senior Vice President of Investments. “Additionally, Savannah has demonstrated strong multifamily market fundamentals, posting positive net absorption in 17 of the past 20 quarters along with significant annual rent growth.”

Due to the escalating interest rates and the challenges confronting U.S. banks, many lenders have chosen to pull back and adopt stricter lending standards, leading to challenges for borrowers to fully capitalize development deals. “The preferred equity investment from EB5 Capital enabled us to significantly reduce the amount of common equity required and create a capital stack accretive to Daniel Corporation and our partners,” said Carter Bryars, Daniel Corporation’s Chief Operating Officer.

EB5 Capital provides preferred equity investments for ground-up development across the United States. The company has successfully raised approximately one billion dollars since inception and continues to seek investments in multifamily assets with sponsors that have a proven track record of success.

This is EB5 Capital’s first partnership with Daniel Corporation, a reputable developer founded in 1964 and based in Birmingham, Alabama.  Daniel has $1.2 billion in active project investments, primarily through development and management platforms, and has developed or managed over 20,000 multifamily units and over 20 million square feet of commercial and industrial space.

About EB5 Capital

Growth in Patient and Medical Community Engagement in NASH Community Persists Despite Recent Regulatory Disappointment

Global Liver Institute Convenes Largest Number of Community Events around the World in the 6 Years of International NASH Day Washington, D.C., June 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today is International NASH Day, a time where healthcare experts and community members around the globe step up and raise awareness of the most common liver disease in the […]

Global Liver Institute Convenes Largest Number of Community Events around the World in the 6 Years of International NASH Day

Washington, D.C., June 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today is International NASH Day, a time where healthcare experts and community members around the globe step up and raise awareness of the most common liver disease in the world – nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) – and it’s more severe form, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).
Fatty liver disease is a condition in which excess fat builds up in the liver, which can lead to scarring and cirrhosis (permanent damage that impairs liver function). An estimated 25% of the global population, or about 2 billion people, are affected by NAFLD. 20% of those with NAFLD progress to NASH.
International NASH Day 2023 is endorsed by 30 medical specialty societies from around the world, and more than 50 global organizations, from research institutions to community organizations to medical centers and more, will be hosting events to inform and educate their communities.
“By releasing new, multilingual resources to help patients access NASH diagnostics and treatment, leading even more awareness and educational events worldwide, and continuing to foster opportunities for patients to step up and speak out, GLI and its partners are stepping up for those with or at risk of NASH this year,” shared Donna R. Cryer, JD, President and CEO of Global Liver Institute. “We have been heartened through collaboration with the broader patient advocacy community on health technology assessment (HTA) and regulatory processes. Together we have made certain that the patient voice is the clear, powerful force that it ought to be.”
While NASH can develop at any point in life, many of the factors that heighten an individual’s risk of developing NASH are well-known, including overweight or obesity, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure.
Despite established risk factors, too often patients in high-risk groups are still not triaged, not screened, and not connected to the care they require. We are grateful that, just this year, several societies have updated their treatment guidelines for identifying and caring for NAFLD/NASH to reflect our best current understanding of the disease. We are grateful to the scientists who have expanded our understanding of – and ability to control – the disease. It is time for health systems to step up and invest effort in operationalizing these new guidelines.

We urge health system leaders to step up and examine the NASH patient pathway, identify where patients are lost, and bolster those processes.
We encourage primary care and endocrinology providers to step up and learn which of their patients are at heightened risk of NAFLD/NASH – and to connect them to the screening they need.
We challenge the media to step up against the stigma and cover stories about NAFLD/NASH and liver health, especially when discussing obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other risk factors.
We implore regulators to step up for the livelihood of the millions of patients around the world whose lives are affected by NAFLD/NASH.

Clear, strong connections between primary care providers, specialists, and intervention support are all critical – and within reach – to help more patients find and stop the progression of NASH while they have the opportunity.
“It can be overwhelming how widespread the chronic, progressive disease of NAFLD and NASH has become. Those at risk should know they are supported and empowered to step up for a healthier liver,” encouraged Jeff McIntyre, VP of Liver Health Programs at Global Liver Institute. “Ask your doctor for a screening if you have a risk factor – and receive the treatment you need before the disease progresses. Individuals can make small changes with big impacts to support better liver health through better nutrition and incorporating more movement into their daily habits. Although fatty liver disease can progress, it can be controlled if caught early. Get screened now for a healthy liver.”
It’s time to #StepUpforNASH!

Join the Movement
Get tested! Check if you are at risk for NAFLD/NASH and make a note to talk to your primary care provider at your next appointment.
Support the #NASHday social media campaign using hashtags #NASHday #StepUpforNASH. Please direct any additional questions to NASHday@globalliver.org.

About Global Liver Institute 
Global Liver Institute (GLI) is a patient-driven 501(c)3 nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, DC, with offices in the EU and UK, founded in the belief that liver health must take its place on the global public health agenda commensurate with the prevalence and impact of liver disease and the importance of liver health to well-being. GLI promotes innovation, encourages collaboration, and supports the scaling of optimal approaches to improve research, care, and policy. By bringing together more than 200 community-based, national, and international organizations across its councils, campaigns, and events, GLI equips advocates to identify and solve the problems that matter to liver patients.

Tech-facilitated gender-based violence is an international, human rights concern, finds new research

San José, Costa Rica, June 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A report released today by the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) at the 12th RightsCon summit in Costa Rica reveals that almost 25% of people who experience online harm feel they are targeted due to their gender identity.

San José, Costa Rica, June 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A report released today by the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) at the 12th RightsCon summit in Costa Rica reveals that almost 25% of people who experience online harm feel they are targeted due to their gender identity. It says the most prevalent, frequent and severe experiences of online harm occur among transgender and gender-diverse people.

The report, Supporting Safer Digital Spaces, analyzes data from the first statistically meaningful survey of women’s and LGBTQ+ individuals’ online experiences focused on the Global South. It covers 18,000 respondents of all genders in 18 countries.

Key findings include:

  • Nearly 60% of all respondents experienced some form of online harm — almost 25% of them felt they were targeted because of their gender identity.
  • Almost one in three respondents (30%) who have experienced some form of online harm and who identified as transgender or gender-diverse reported severe impacts to their mental health, including their desire to live.
  • Almost 30% of women reported negative impacts to their mental health and 23% felt that they could no longer engage freely online after experiencing online harms.

Online harms, which are forms of technology-facilitated violence (TFV), can range from impersonation to doxing, from physical threats to the non-consensual distribution of intimate images and deliberate personal attacks on communications channels. Even after serious incidents of TFV, many people do not seek help — the survey found that 40% of participants did not reach out to anyone after experiencing online harm.

“Due to increased sexism, homophobia, transphobia and violent threats online, many women and LGBTQ+ people are having to choose between facing the abuse that comes with being a woman or LGBTQ+ online or being silent. This abusive behaviour leads to real harms in both the digital and physical world and there are few supports available to people targeted by TFV,” said CIGI Senior Fellow Suzie Dunn, lead author of the report, which details 87 recommendations to address technology-facilitated violence through educational campaigns, legal and policy resources, tools for support and non-governmental resources.

“Right to life and liberty and right to freedom of opinion and expression are basic human rights,” said Anja Kovacs, an independent researcher and consultant on internet and data governance from a feminist perspective, who advised CIGI. “TFV steals these rights from women, LGBTQ+ people and equity-seeking groups. Governments, technology companies, civil society organizations, researchers, academics and think tanks must work together to eradicate TFV.”

The 18 countries surveyed by global market research firm Ipsos, with funding from Canada’s International Research Development Centre, are Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, India, Jordan, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates and the United States.

Les mineurs de crypto-monnaie les plus rentables sont désormais déployés dans le monde entier

NEW YORK, le 7 juin 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Les amateurs de minage de crypto-monnaies du monde entier peuvent désormais avoir accès chez eux aux mineurs les plus rentables. Bitmanu vient de lancer le déploiement dans le monde entier de ses mineurs BM 1, BM 2 et BM Pro. Malgré une durée de vie relativement courte, ces mineurs au circuit ASIC ont déjà fait parler d’eux en raison de leur excellente rentabilité.

Lancée au début de l’année 2021, la compagnie Bitmanu a immédiatement attiré l’attention des experts du secteur grâce aux taux de hachage élevés de ses plates-formes de minage. Les taux de hachage de ses mineurs BM 1, BM 2 et BM Pro sont plus élevés que ceux de tout autre matériel disponible sur le marché. Ces plates-formes de minage ont même été améliorées grâce à l’introduction récente d’un flux binaire (bitstream) privé et unique à Bitmanu, qui leur permet maintenant de miner efficacement plusieurs crypto-monnaies.

Taux de hachage des mineurs Bitmanu

  BM Pro BM 2 BM 1
Bitcoin 3 900 TH/s 1 220 TH/s 760 TH/s
Litecoin 400 GH/s 128 GH/s 80 GH/s
Dash 75 TH/s 25 TH/s 15 TH/s
Monero 32 MH/s 10 MH/s 6 MH/s

De nombreux utilisateurs des mineurs Bitmanu ont indiqué qu’ils avaient pu récupérer l’intégralité de leurs investissements en l’espace d’environ un mois. Cela est possible non seulement grâce aux taux de hachage élevés de ces plates-formes, mais aussi grâce à leur faible consommation d’énergie. Malgré leur extraordinaire puissance de calcul, BM 1, BM 2 et BM Pro ne consomment respectivement que 650 W, 850 W et 2200 W.

Il est intéressant de noter qu’un pourcentage élevé des clients satisfaits par Bitmanu sont des mineurs de crypto-monnaies occasionnels qui n’ont pas, ou très peu, été exposés au minage de crypto-monnaies. Bitmanu est probablement la première entreprise à concevoir des plates-formes de minage simples dont le but est de démocratiser un domaine traditionnellement dominé par des experts en technologie.
