I have a 457 plan with ICMA. I have invested $92,578 of my own money in it over a period of 23 years. The account now has $138,000 in it. Is that normal for a 457 plan? I only found out about year 20 that we were supposed to manage the accounts ourselves. I know absolutely nothing about managing an investment account and many of the funds my money was in were making 0% per quarter but I was still being charged extravagant fees by ICMA.
Any system which allows users to authenticate via an untrusted network (such as the Internet) is vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks. In this type of attack, a fraudster acts as the “go-between” the user and the legitimate system, soliciting the token output from the legitimate user and then supplying it to the authentication system themselves. Since the token value is mathematically correct, the authentication succeeds and the fraudster is granted access. Citibank made headline news in 2006 when its hardware-token-equipped business users became the victims of a large Ukrainian-based man-in-the-middle phishing attack.
The investment seeks a high current income and the opportunity for capital appreciation to produce a high total return. The fund normally pursues its investment objective by investing at least 80% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, in lower-rated debt securities, including corporate debt securities and securities that are convertible into common stock or have warrants to purchase common stock. It may invest up to 20% of its net assets in foreign securities that primarily are traded outside of the U.S. The fund may invest up to 20% of its net assets in municipal securities. more
I’m not sure about your version of Windows but in mine, Task Manager does not display any info on the status of the graphics card. All I see is the performance of my CPU cores, memory and networking throughput.
With AirDrop, users only need to be concerned with the top two rows. Since we selected a video from the Photos app, other images and clips appear alongside as scrollable thumbnails. Users can choose from other photos in a library and send multiple files in a single AirDrop session. Each selected picture is ticked with a blue checkmark.
If you are a gamer you most likely have a video card that can mine cryptocurrency for you for a profit. Here is how you can make some extra money letting your graphics card do the work for you when you are not using PC.
Major exchanges like Gemini and Coinbase are strictly regulated which means that the security and safety of their wallets are top-notch. However, platforms are also vulnerable to hacks or bankruptcy which may lead to closures.
On Macs running macOS 10.7 and greater, AirDrop is available in the Finder window sidebar. On Macs running OS X 10.8.1 or later, it can also be accessed through the menu option Go → AirDrop or by pressing ⇧ Shift+⌘ Cmd+R.
Yes. Zcash is based on the peer-reviewed Zerocash protocol, which was published in the IEEE Security & Privacy conference in 2014. The Zerocash paper provides a detailed technical overview of the specification. Our changes to the protocol are not (yet) peer-reviewed, but they are described and justified comprehensively in our protocol specification. Those changes are also in the process of being subjected to several independent security audits.
The announced mining-optimized cards are not new designs, but rather redesigned cards based on already-existing architectures (Polaris, for AMD, and Pascal, for NVIDIA). The general differences between these cards and the already-existing models are the lack of video ports in some models (which should cut down on the costs and allow manufacturers to use cards that had defective video outputs), optimized fans for 24/7 operation and the lack of any bling.

You will need to be near the person you are sharing with and they must have their device turned on for it to register, however, you need not be right next to them. AirDrop can even reach into the next room. Both devices will also need the correct permissions to AirDrop with each other.
ZCash is another hot cryptocurrency that’s here for the long run. What makes ZCash stand out from the crowd is its dual approach: just like pretty much all cryptocurrencies and blockchains out there, ZCash uses a publicly-accessible blockchain that stores each and every transaction. However, ZCash also allows a more private transaction mode, which still registers the sender and the receiver of a transaction, but not the transacted amount, all while still providing the unparalleled security of a blockchain.
It should start mining in no time ! Visit the pools website, input your wallet adress at the top-right corner of the screen and click “check status”, if the miner found at least one share, you should see your mining stats there. ENJOY ?
The diff change value is calculated by looking at the current difficulty and comparing it to the 12 hour moving average of the difficulty one month ago. For smaller coins the diff change can sometimes be inaccurate due to a wildly fluctuating difficulty.
More recently, Apple was awarded a patent for an NFC-based cross-platform data transfer system very similar to AirDrop. Instead of using Bluetooth to initiate the device handshake and authentication, the patent relied on near field communications. Like AirDrop, however, the end result is the creation of an ad-hoc wireless network over which files can be transferred.
Folks, do your research and due diligence. You will in almost every case listed above loose money to inflation and/or fees. I would never do business with any major financial institution, especially Merrill Lynch. They (MERRILL LYNCH) solicited me through a phone call back in the 2000’s and I listened to their pitch and invested my 401k in their fund picks. Every one failed miserably and years later I saw they got in trouble for this very thing by the SEC because they were in it for the fees and expenses and not for my success. Important lesson learned for me and since, I have found numerous places to get investment info. There is a saying no risk, no reward. That is very true. If you want any decent return (10-20%+), you must be able to stomach some risk. You just have to get used to some losses. Nobody is 100%. There are many groups out there who have some great ideas that would support higher returns for some risk, and not everything I have found with any one org is 100% for me. I have to pick and choose the pieces which I feel benefit me. The Motley Fool, Stansbury Reasearch, Oxford Club, Formula Stocks Pro, Zacks, Fisher investments all have pieces which, if you spread the risk, will produce returns beyond anything this article even hints at. Don’t line the pockets of your investment manager, PAY YOURSELF and manage your own money. Reasearch some of these and you will see for yourself. Don’t let someone talk you into believing a lie. There are returns out there. Those wall street guys aren’t super human. You are just as smart as them and you don’t need a degree in finance or economics to know where to invest your money. There are so many baby boomers out there that they see opportunity to cash in on their (OUR) financial ignorance. Take control of your finances and you will be a success. Didn’t mean to write all this but it’s true. America, we need to teach our children financial success at a young age. Just saying.
However, if you have Nvidia cards, or if you’re in the market to buy new cards and can’t find any well-priced AMD cards, then mining Zcash on Nvidia GPUs is still very profitable with the EWBF Miner, which is highly optimized to get the maximum performance out of Nvidia’s Cuda cores.
For the purpose of this guide, we’re going to do a detailed walk-through of setting up and using the very popular Nvidia EWBF Miner. If you have AMD cards, mining Ethereum is usually your most profitable option.
Replace “eu” for your location, “ZEC-ADDRESS” for your zcash wallet address (transparent address) and lastly replace “-og 0” for the number of GPUs you’re using (as in -og 0 1 2 if you’re using 3 GPUs)
