Miner source: SegWit to happen before September

A great news is just awaiting for all Bitcoin lovers including me. As I'm currently holding over 1K BTC, everyday mempool lagging depresses me about Bitcoin's success & gives me tension a lot. Bitcoin has a very bright future which is now being spoiled by its own popularity. Everyday thousands of transactions are being unconfirmed for almost over 72 hours. Yes, block scaling issue is the great problem for Bitcoin's success of all the time.
Today I just found the news on Cointelegraph & feel excited --

Bitcoin Miners Agree in NY on SegWit Activation "Before September": Sources

Yesterday, on May 21 all major Bitcoin miners have arranged a meeting where they have reached an  agreement to go for SegWit activation. This meeting was held in the city of New York. It's an undoubtedly a very good start to the important Consensus conference that united important  movers and shakers of the crypto industry. 
Currently blocks supported by major miners are shown as below on coindance --
SegWit : 34%
Bitcoin Unlimited : 40%
And Nodes run on --
Bitcoin Core (SegWit) : 85%
Bitcoin Unlimited : 9%

Global Bitcoin Political Support & Public Opinion

SegWit : 86%
Bitcoin Unlimited : 26%
It's clear that majority of the Bitcoin users, supporters & investors want to activate SegWit, but, some big Chinese miners i.e. Antpool, ViaBTC, BTC.top, Canoe, GBMiners etc. are against SegWit.
Recently, Litecoin successfully activated SegWit & price has risen from $4 to $30. So, if SegWit activated on Bitcoin then not only the transactions will be faster confirmed but also price will get a big jump.
And, as the other alternative option Bitcoin Unlimited is buggy and is not safe to run Bitcoin network on it, we only have one option SegWit Activation.
According to  Charlie Shrem’s messages  in the Whalepoolbtc Telegram chat -
“When I have all the details I will tell you, it's still  all being processed,” Shrem wrote, adding that he was “bullish” and  confirming the news was to do with SegWit. 
I think these two message state that there was “big news” coming from the Consensus conference.
Shrem’s optimism relates to a group of Bitcoin businesses, which  together with at least Jihan Wu and Barry Silbert, allegedly agreed to  enable SegWit “in September 2017.” 
According to entrepreneur Alistair Milne, a meeting organized by Silbert  at Consensus produced what “may conclude the Bitcoin scaling debate  (for now).” 
A news from an anonymous source is that "SegWit activation will occur before that date".  Core developer Luke-jr  has already confirmed that the implementation date would in September this year.

mathematics behind chess

Is there any relationship between supposing numerically and supposing in the round of Chess? At the end of the day, should a man having a dynamic personality in Mathematics turned out to be essentially a decent Chess player have aptitudes in Mathematics?  It is important to call attention to that because of the subject intricacy, our endeavors will be to clarify essential attributes of both  Science and Chess which have been postured by surely understood Mathematicians and Chess players. In like manner, we are not keen on uncovering truths, for instance, from the Theory of Knowledge, Psychology, Epistemology or going further into the specialized and complex parts of Chess.  In the first place, let us analyze a few characteristics of Mathernatics.  Individuals having poor involvement in Mathematics trust that knowing how to include, subtract, increase or separation empowers them to say that they could ace Mathematics.

What I Learnt Today : Tourists can buy live animals as keychains and lucky charms in China

image credit An amazing & also shocking information is just waiting for you. You must be astonished when you hear the truth about the components used to make some sort of keychains in China. In China some sort of keychains are made with live animals. These special keychains are made for tourists. image credit Which animals are used ? Generally small fishes or turtles are placed in a small sealed plastic keychain container. image credit How long these animals live ? The sellers claim that they keep some nutritious supplements inside the plastic containers. This nutritious supplements keep the animals alive for several weeks or months. This is 100% false.

Actually, no access to air and limited space kills these animals quite quickly. image credit Unfortunately, buying or selling these poor creatures as keychains is not banned in China. These activit
