first_img Jennifer Lopez Announces It’s My Party Tour jennifer-lopez-announces-its-my-party-north-american-tour Twitter News The It’s My Party tour will then bring her killer moves and infectious energy to other huge venues across North America, including the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif. on June 13, the American Airlines Center in Dallas and the United Center in Chicago on June 29. She will make two stops in Canada, in Toronto on July 7 and Montreal on July 10, followed by a July 12 show at the historic Madison Square Garden in New York. She will hold the final two concerts of the tour in Florida, in Orlando on July 23 and closing out in Miami on July 25.In the video accompanying her social media announcement, Lopez shared her vision for the tour: “I know I’m going to give them a good show, I know I’m going to make sure that the music feels great, and the flow is right and the set is right. That’s what I do…It’s a party, baby!”A press release emphasized that nothing will be held back for J. Lo’s birthday extravaganza. The shows will be “a nonstop party mix of Jennifer’s new and classic anthems, show-stopping choreography and dancers, dazzling wardrobe, jawdropping technology and set design, and all of the glamour and wow-factor fans have come to expect of Jenny from the Block,” it said.In addition to the excitement of celebrating J. Lo’s birthday with the icon herself—fans are already freaking out on Twitter—the tour itself is a big deal. It is her first one since her first major solo tour, the Dance Again World Tour in 2012. Prior to that, she had a joint tour with Marc Anthony in 2007. Lopez’ most recent concerts were during her Las Vegas residency, dubbed All I Have, from January 2016– September 2018, during which she performed 120 shows. The multifaceted pop star’s last LP was her eighth studio album, 2014’s A.K.A. She released several singles last year, including the Spanish language “Te Guste” with rising Latin trap star Bad Bunny in November and the bilingual “Dinero” featuring DJ Khaled and Cardi B last May. She has teased a new track, “Medicine,” featuring rapper French Montana, due out April 5. Tour tickets go on sale Fri., March 29 at 10:00 am local time, with presales beginning March 26; more info here.Rosalía Announces First Solo North American TourRead more The 25-date trek kicks off on June 7 in Los Angeles and wraps up the day after her birthday, July 25, in MiamiAna YglesiasGRAMMYs Mar 22, 2019 – 1:11 pm GRAMMY-nominated pop powerhouse and dancer extraordinaire Jennifer Lopez fittingly wants to celebrate her upcoming 50th birthday, July 24, with music, dancing and all her fans.

first_imgVitalik Buterin, co-founder of blockchain platform Ethereum, posted a paper on a new kind of consensus algorithm last week. This algorithm requires only 1% of the nodes to be honest for the network to be secure. This results in 99% fault tolerance, increasing the security greatly. How can Ethereum achieve 99% fault tolerance? The new consensus algorithm introduces a new kind of validator nodes—“independent observer nodes”. These observer nodes observe the chain in real-time to filter any inconsistencies in the network. This original idea was published in 1982 by Turing award winning computer scientist, Leslie Lamport. The new algorithm to be implemented in Ethereum is Vitalik’s attempt to reformulate Leslie’s algorithm in a simplified form. The new algorithm adds one’s own signature as a bump on the timeout of a message. This ability guarantees that an honest node saw the message on time. This can ensure that every other node sees the message on time as well. The definition of on time increments more than the network latency with every added signature. On implementation, the algorithm will render 51% attacks useless. What are the benefits? Ethereum developer, Conrad Barski states that there are several benefits of introducing this new protocol: “Usually, all blockchain consensus[algorithms] care about is what the validators (i.e. miners) of a chain do. Vitalik is proposing that if an independent observer of the network traffic (i.e. just the blockchain client a user is running, not a miner/validator) watches what’s happening in real time and pays attention to when messages appear, they can detect ‘foul play’ by miners performing a 51% attack and this can provide additional safety guarantees that can protect against such an attack. This is somewhat similar to how merchants are already checking for 51% attacks themselves, only Vitalik’s version is more large-scale and complex.” As of now, the Ethereum blockchain works on proof-of-work (PoW). This new protocol is expected to be set in action when Ethereum is shifted to proof-of-stake (PoS). The exact timeline for the PoS switch is not known, it might happen next year. In PoS, the more the number of coins/tokens a user has, the greater is his/her mining capacity. PoS will reduce the Ethereum reward by 80%; 0.6 ETH from the existing 3 ETH per block. With the implementation of this consensus network, Ethereum might become the most secure blockchain network in the public domain.
