This collapse started the day the Titanic was sunk

The people only did one thing wrong to deserve this crisis: Trust a small group of people with the creation of money
The reason the titanic was sunk was to murder 3 guys, why? they were 3 millionares who opposed the creation of the Fed.
A year later the Fed was born.
117 years later, the financial world is crumbling, thanks to them.
This would never be on the news or any school but check these 2 videos to see why the fed is the root of the problem and what is the solution.
The reason of how we ended up like this is the Fed https://youtu.be/iFDe5kUUyT0
Bitcoin is the solution https://youtu.be/bBC-nXj3Ng4

DJIA -1315 From Yesterday’s High
POWELL Says, “No Neg Rates”
Today’s market was down from the start with PPI numbers and Jay Powell talking about the economy, negative rates, a slower than Trump promises recovery and just in general spooking anyone within the sound of his voice. The futures had been higher, but the rally in afterhours last night had pushed up the “fair value” to the point of a negative open. It only got worse throughout the day as the A/D and volume piled up on the downside finishing 8:1 down on the NYSE and 4:1 on the NAZ, but also on the NY the volume was a solid 7:1 down too. On the DJIA we had only one stock up, MRK, and only $ .74. The losers were spread around with UHN the biggest loser -70, GS -37, MMM -36 AND AXP -35 DPs. Financials, Energy, and Industrials were the weakest with Consumer staples and Utilities the “least weak.”
Our “open forum” on Discord, which allows me to interact with subscribers and others to allow direct questions and chart opinions on just about any stock, continues to grow with more participants every day. It is informative and allows me to share insights as the market is open and moving. The link is: https://discord.gg/ATvC7YZ and I will be there and active from before the open and all day. It’s a great place to share ideas and gain some insights, and we’ve grown to almost 1900 members. I also did this video titled “How to survive being an options trader and not blow up your account,” over the long weekend. I think it’s very informative as a guide to stock selection and option choices. The link is https://youtu.be/Y7H9RpWfLlo Enjoy!!
Tonight’s closing comment video https://youtu.be/vm3CUCipzT0
SECTORS: The news from UBER / GRUB was that there would be no deal at 2.1 shares of UBER for GRUB, but it was disclosed that UBER was considering a ratio of just 1.9:1, so UBER moved up $ .62 while GRUB was lower by $2.25 (3.73%). The good news was that UBER said there were $300 million in cost efficiencies in the deal for them. Not much of a dent in the $2.9 Billion they lost this quarter, but I guess you have to start somewhere.
Cisco reported a beat after the close and the stock, down from a high yesterday of $44.30 had closed $41.95 - $1.27 rallied on the news to $44.45 but closed $42.94 +.99.
ASCO, the Cancer Society annual meeting is in 2 weeks, and Allogene (ALLO) published their findings on a new therapy and the stock shot up from its close of $30.98 -1.56 (4.79%) to trade as high as $46.57 before closing $39.50 + 8.52. There will be a steady stream of these type of announcements in the next 10 days.

OIL, $26.68 -.65. Oil was another short-range day that gave no hint of direction to come as we finished down a bit. The contract was rolled forward so the price is slightly higher but still unable to make any headway against overhead supply. All the stocks on my list were lower with XLE $35.73 -1.70 (4.54%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,716.40 +9.60. After the recent gains, Gold broke below $1,700 yesterday but failed to follow-thru to the downside and closed higher. The 5 and 20-day MAs look like they may cross to the upside, But it was still unable to break the downtrend line at $1,726. We are long NEM.
BITCOIN: closed $9,270 +400. After breaking out over $7500 we have moved as high as just over $10,000 before gapping down overnight to trade as low as $8,400 earlier this week.

Oil +20% Again
Rally Fades by Half
Today’s market got off to a strong start yet again but at the end of the day we had two down waves starting around 2:45 that cut gains by about 2/3. Market internals were a bit on the soft side with NYSE A/D only 4:3 and NASDAQ 17:15. Volume was lighter than the past few days and the DJIA had 21 up and 9 down. The biggest losers were BA -41 and MCD -18 DPs while the gainers were UNH +37, AAPL +30 and HD +26 DPs. All these names were higher before the last hour with AAPL trading $301 but finishing $297.80. The news of the day on the economy was not great. ISM Non-manufacturing Index for Aprildropped to 41.8from 52.5 in March. 50% is the breakpoint for expansion/contraction. The trade balance showed a widening in the deficit to $44.4 billion from $39.8 in February. Exports were down $20 billion. Tomorrow we have the ADP Employment change report for April and weekly MBA Mortgage applications.

SECTORS: Earnings played a part in today’s market. NEM was a strong report and the stock, already up from $58 on Friday finished the day $64.91 +2.17 (3.46%), DIS was the big loser with volumes down due to closed parks and no production taking place at the studios. Streaming is strong, but a big piece is being done at reduced rates or even for free. At the close the stock was $101.06 -2.12 but after a small rally, the conference call started and after the company disclosed it is suspending its dividend for the first half it slid to 99.25. BYND reported good sales growth and the recent closures of several major meat processing plants has been buoying prices. The stock has rallied off an April low of $57 and closed today $100.16 +5.00 and is currently trading $105 + $5 more.
Two companies in the same business, EA and ATVI went in opposite directions. EA was a miss and after closing $119.61 +2.78 it fell t0 112.12 and is currently 113.98 – 5.62. Activision (ATVI) beat handily and it had closed 68.53 +1.83 and is now $72.40 + 3.87 more. Pinterest (PINS) had risen from a low of $10.10 last month to close $20.81 -.62 but missed on several metrics and has traded down to $16.70 and is $17.15 – 3.66. Also, on the bad news side, UAL finished $24.12 -1.14 (4.5%) and Norwegian Cruise (NCLH) warned about it continuing as a “going concern.” The stock is down from $60 and finished the day $11.18 -3.26 (22.58%).
FOOD SUPPLY: was HIGHER with TSN +1.57, BGS +.77, FLO +.11, CAG -.03, MDLZ +.19, KHC +.02, CALM -.39, JJSF +2.66, SAFM +1.97, and LANC +7.67 (5.68%).

OIL, $24.56 +4.17. Oil was higher overnight and the rally continued on all day. The stocks were mixed with only the big names moving higher. XLE closed $37.52 +.43 (1.16%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,710.60 -2.70. After the recent gains, Gold broke solidly above $1,700 and traded as high as $1788 last Wednesday. We were stopped out of our position in the 5/15 165 calls and I replaced them with the $163 strike. We are also long NEM.
BITCOIN: closed $8985 +50. After we traded in the uptrend, I mentioned this weekend that I felt we would have to test 6750 and yesterday we hit 6465 before turning back up. Today’s action was a continuing move higher with a high of 9560. While I want to add the 350, I still want to wait and see some stabilization. We still own 400 GBTC with an average of $8.06. GBTC closed $10.02 + .05 today.

Oil +20% Again
Rally Fades by Half
Today’s market got off to a strong start yet again but at the end of the day we had two down waves starting around 2:45 that cut gains by about 2/3. Market internals were a bit on the soft side with NYSE A/D only 4:3 and NASDAQ 17:15. Volume was lighter than the past few days and the DJIA had 21 up and 9 down. The biggest losers were BA -41 and MCD -18 DPs while the gainers were UNH +37, AAPL +30 and HD +26 DPs. All these names were higher before the last hour with AAPL trading $301 but finishing $297.80. The news of the day on the economy was not great. ISM Non-manufacturing Index for Aprildropped to 41.8from 52.5 in March. 50% is the breakpoint for expansion/contraction. The trade balance showed a widening in the deficit to $44.4 billion from $39.8 in February. Exports were down $20 billion. Tomorrow we have the ADP Employment change report for April and weekly MBA Mortgage applications.
Our “open forum” on Discord, which allows me to interact with subscribers and others to allow direct questions and chart opinions on just about any stock, continues to grow with more participants every day. It is informative and allows me to share insights as the market is open and moving. The link is: https://discord.gg/ATvC7YZ and I will be there and active from before the open and all day. It’s a great place to share ideas and gain some insights, and we’ve grown to almost 1900 members. I also did this video titled “How to survive being an options trader and not blow up your account,” over the long weekend. I think it’s very informative as a guide to stock selection and option choices. The link is https://youtu.be/Y7H9RpWfLlo Enjoy!!

SECTORS: Earnings played a part in today’s market. NEM was a strong report and the stock, already up from $58 on Friday finished the day $64.91 +2.17 (3.46%), DIS was the big loser with volumes down due to closed parks and no production taking place at the studios. Streaming is strong, but a big piece is being done at reduced rates or even for free. At the close the stock was $101.06 -2.12 but after a small rally, the conference call started and after the company disclosed it is suspending its dividend for the first half it slid to 99.25. BYND reported good sales growth and the recent closures of several major meat processing plants has been buoying prices. The stock has rallied off an April low of $57 and closed today $100.16 +5.00 and is currently trading $105 + $5 more.
Two companies in the same business, EA and ATVI went in opposite directions. EA was a miss and after closing $119.61 +2.78 it fell t0 112.12 and is currently 113.98 – 5.62. Activision (ATVI) beat handily and it had closed 68.53 +1.83 and is now $72.40 + 3.87 more. Pinterest (PINS) had risen from a low of $10.10 last month to close $20.81 -.62 but missed on several metrics and has traded down to $16.70 and is $17.15 – 3.66. Also, on the bad news side, UAL finished $24.12 -1.14 (4.5%) and Norwegian Cruise (NCLH) warned about it continuing as a “going concern.” The stock is down from $60 and finished the day $11.18 -3.26 (22.58%).
FOOD SUPPLY: was HIGHER with TSN +1.57, BGS +.77, FLO +.11, CAG -.03, MDLZ +.19, KHC +.02, CALM -.39, JJSF +2.66, SAFM +1.97, and LANC +7.67 (5.68%).

CANNABIS: This group was LOWER with TLRY -.27, CGC +.10, CRON -.08, GWPH +.72, ACB -.012, PYX -.74, NBEV -.02, CURLF +.06, KERN -.01 and MJ $11.90 -.05 (.42%).
DEFENSE: was HIGHER with LMT +10.14, RTX +.15, GD +1.72, TXT -.34, NOC +6.18, BWXT +3.09 (6.05%), TDY +1.22 and ITA $147.45 +.01.
RETAIL was MIXED with M -.06, JWN -.52, KSS -.27, DDS -1.31 (4.8%), JCP -.0145, WMT +1.04, TGT +.14, TJX +.14, RL +.45, UAA -.31, LULU -.48, TPR unch., CPRI -.07, and XRT $36.16 +.31 (.86%).
FAANG and Big Cap: were HIGHER with GOOGL +36.89, AMZN +7.98, AAPL +5.54, FB +2.39, NFLX -1.65, NVDA +3.94, TSLA +12.31, BABA +4.50, BIDU +.84, CMG -5.75, CAT +1.96, BA -4.96, DIS (see above), and XLK $91.45 +1.37 (1.52%).
FINANCIALS were MIXED with GS +2.97, JPM +.01, BAC -.19, MS -.02, C -1.15, PNC -1.61, AIG +.73, TRV -.06, AXP +.62, V +2.29, and XLF $21.79 -.07 (.32%).
OIL, $24.56 +4.17. Oil was higher overnight and the rally continued on all day. The stocks were mixed with only the big names moving higher. XLE closed $37.52 +.43 (1.16%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,710.60 -2.70. After the recent gains, Gold broke solidly above $1,700 and traded as high as $1788 last Wednesday. We were stopped out of our position in the 5/15 165 calls and I replaced them with the $163 strike. We are also long NEM.
BITCOIN: closed $8985 +50. After we traded in the uptrend, I mentioned this weekend that I felt we would have to test 6750 and yesterday we hit 6465 before turning back up. Today’s action was a continuing move higher with a high of 9560. While I want to add the 350, I still want to wait and see some stabilization. We still own 400 GBTC with an average of $8.06. GBTC closed $10.02 + .05 today.
Tomorrow is another day.

This is just a setup because the end of the USD is here, are we going to choose Bitcoin BTC (Freedom) or a new currency controled by the same cabal (Slavery)?

SS: all this mess is just a setup because the end of the USD is near, We have to choose between freeedom BTC or slavery with a new currency owned by the same cabal
This is how each one works:

Nasdaq planning to use Ravencoin to launch a security token platform?

So we know Nasdaq is planning on entering the tokenized securities market, but in case you missed it:

https://theblockcrypto.com/2018/10/12/nasdaq-is-looking-at-gatecrashing-a-red-hot-industry-with-a-platform-to-issue-tokenized-securities/

In the article there's a relevant quote: "Nasdaq is speaking with a number of firms as part of its efforts, including blockchain startup Symbiont".

Here's another article: https://www.livebitcoinnews.com/nasdaq-reportedly-considers-creating-platform-for-cryptocurrency-security-tokens/

"Reports indicate that Nasdaq is pushing through with these plans, holding high-level talks with Symbiont – a blockchain startup focusing on institutional blockchain solutions. According to the inside sources, the proposed Nasdaq platform will both issue and trade cryptocurrency security tokens."

What does Symbiont have to do with Ravencoin? Well, follow the trail...here's a news release from Back in mid-2017: https://globenewswire.com/news-release/2017/07/19/1054397/0/en/Medici-Ventures-Announces-Strategic-Investment-in-Symbiont.html

"Medici Ventures and Symbiont today announced the completion of a strategic investment in Symbiont by Medici Ventures, a major investor in blockchain technology. As part of the new relationship, the two companies will collaborate on strategic projects involving both Medici Ventures and its parent company, Overstock.com Common Shares (NASDAQ:OSTK) / Series A Preferred (Medici Ventures’ t0 platform : OSTKP) / Series B Preferred (OTCQX:OSTBP)."

Now we already know Patrick Byrne/Overstock.com is a big fan of Ravencoin, and has helped fund development: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEaqCdind2Y

"Ravencoin, I think it's Bitcoin 3.0"...

https://youtu.be/wLUshd-b6Lc?t=75

"Well I'm not really interested in cryptocurrencies per se. Although in general, I guess there's nothing wrong with me saying there is an open-source project of which I'm really letting something big out of the bag here. I'll tell you. But there's an open-source project called Ravencoin, which Overstock has put millions of dollars into teams. We have people contributing to this open-source project. We think this coin actually has quite a future. It's about — it's bitcoin, but a thousand times more energy efficient. And there's other real interesting virtues to it — so Ravencoin. But other than that, I stay out of the cryptocurrency game. I'm building the — we're focusing on applications of this technology and not just betting on coins themselves."

We also know they unveiled tZero at the Nasdaq headquarters back in late 2015: https://www.coindesk.com/overstock-unveils-blockchain-trading-platform-to/

Byrne has also talked about tZero partnering with Symbiont "at some point", check page 12 of their earnings call transcript back in March of this year: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/External.File?item=UGFyZW50SUQ9NjkwNjMwfENoaWxkSUQ9NDAxMjM0fFR5cGU9MQ==&t=1

"There's all kinds of -- tZero and Symbiont are wonderful partners at some point. So this ecosystem may seem random, but there's a real underlying structure to it."

and page 14 with Byrne's comments in Ravencoin:

"Next, just so I never mention or could be accused of not mentioning it, I'm going to mention Ravencoin, which is -- put this in the category of Texas
Gulf Sulphur. I have now officially publicly mentioned Ravencoin. Don't know what it's worth, I probably should disclose we have over 60 million
of these; it's currently trading at $0.03 a piece, so a couple million bucks, nothing to get excited about. Who knows? But it's not our coin it's an open source project, of which we became quite enamored and we threw in several millions of dollars of developers to help it along and such, it's a very
interesting project, and that's enough."

So are Nasdaq/Symbiont/Medici Ventures/Overstock/tZero/Ravencoin planning something huge behind the scenes? I highly doubt Nasdaq will just sit back and let ICE/New York Stock Exchange have all the fun with Bakkt.

How Bitcoin BTC Was Hijacked, and Why Bitcoin Cash Was Created.

From 2009-2015, Bitcoin BTC was run by programmers like Satoshi Nakamoto, Gavin Andresen, Mike Hearn, and promoted by people like Roger Ver. Most in this community tended to lean libertarian, and liked Bitcoin BTC's potential to take power away from governments & central banks.
Satoshi left the project. In the spirit of openness & freedom, Gavin & Mike naively made the mistake of letting too many bad actors (like Blockstream) gain access to the Bitcoin BTC project.
The Blockstream side had more money, and they had Theymos (who controls the #1 & #2 Bitcoin communities - rBitcoin & BitcoinTalk.org). As a result, they were able to push enough of the community into believing that small blocks were the way to go.
As Gavin & Mike were being pushed out, they tried to create the first "big block" fork of Bitcoin, called Bitcoin XT. The Blockstream / Bitcoin Core side hired a botnet operator to DDoS Bitcoin XT to death in its infancy.
From Mike Hearn:
"..After Blockstream successfully took over Bitcoin Core and expelled anyone who opposed them, Gavin and I forked Bitcoin Core to create Bitcoin XT, the first alternative node implementation to gain any serious usage. The creation of XT led to the imposition of censorship across all Bitcoin discussion forums and news outlets, resulted in the creation of this sub, and Core supporters paid a botnet operator to force XT nodes offline with DDoS attacks.."
Gavin & Mike were pushed out.
Even Brian Armstrong, the CEO of Coinbase, was censored by rBitcoin back in 2015:
"I just unsubscribed rBitcoin and subscribed /btc" - Brian Armstrong, CEO of Coinbase (largest fiat gateway for crypto), Nov 2015
Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin talks about the absurd censorship on rBitcoin:
By 2016, the Bilderberg Group & AXA funded Blockstream, and the takeover was complete.
Any talk about "big blocks" and "low fees" was banned.
In August 2017, another attempt to create a "big block" fork happened, thus creating Bitcoin Cash (BCH). And learning from the defeat of Bitcoin XT, this time around, Bitcoin Cash made sure they had the support of big miners, so the Blockstream / Bitcoin Core side couldn't use a botnet to DDoS it to death in the cradle.
So that is where we are today.

Even Brian Armstrong, the CEO of Coinbase, was censored by rBitcoin back in 2015:
"I just unsubscribed rBitcoin and subscribed /btc" - Brian Armstrong, CEO of Coinbase (largest fiat gateway for crypto), Nov 2015
Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin talks about the absurd censorship on rBitcoin:
By 2016, the Bilderberg Group & AXA funded Blockstream, and the takeover was complete.
Any talk about "big blocks" and "low fees" was banned.
In August 2017, another attempt to create a "big block" fork happened, thus creating Bitcoin Cash (BCH). And learning from the defeat of Bitcoin XT, this time around, Bitcoin Cash made sure they had the support of big miners, so the Blockstream / Bitcoin Core side couldn't use a botnet to DDoS it to death in the cradle.
So that is where we are today.

Remember: Bitcoin Cash is solving a problem Core has failed to solve for 6 years. It is urgently needed as a technical solution, and has nothing to do with "Roger" or "Jihan".

I'm finding that "history lessons" are needed more and more, as thousands of new people swarm into crypto and land on the highly one-sided, heavily censored bitcoin sub. There are even misinformation "reps" like bitusher in r / BitcoinBeginners blatantly lying to people that are new. As a result, these newcomers have no understanding of the original purpose of Bitcoin nor its raison d'etre.
Roger puts himself out there. But Roger is neither our "leader" nor our "figurehead". He's an individual. An individual with strong ideals who doesn't do this for the money because he is already staggeringly wealthy from Bitcoin. He supports this movement because he is (and always has been) an outspoken advocate of financial sovereignty, freedom of speech, and freedom from tyranny.
Bitcoin Cash is a technical solution to a technical problem that has been ignored for too long. A problem that individuals, business, and miners have presented to Core with both urgency and utlimately anger, since 2012. Gavin Andresen, Satoshi Nakamoto's right hand man has stated publicly that "Bitcoin Cash is the Bitcoin" he was working on in 2010. Vitalik Buterin, founder of Ethereum has publicly called out mods of Bitcoin for censorship of Bitcoin Cash. As far back as 2012 Gavin was expressing serious concern about the Core Dev team as being both "ineffective and unproductive as egos were too big, and infighting was more prominent than forward progress" (paraphrase).
Understand something:
Bitcoin Cash proponents are people who actually care about Bitcoin and why it was made. These are people who had dreams of Bitcoin bringing financial sovereignty to countries whose Governments steal citizens money right from their bank accounts without asking permission. Andreas Antonopoulos used to speak of Bitcoin bringing Banking to the poorest in the world. Companies were being built to swoop into Africa and bring micro-transfers to the SMS financial system that currently services hundreds of millions there.
The attack on Bitcoin has been under way since 2012. And it hasn't been from Bitcoin Cash. The attack was the "opportunity cost" inflicted on Bitcoin by an apathetic and out-of-touch development team that wouldn't enhance it. Fidelity came and went. NASDAQ came and went. Patrick Byrne - Bitcoins biggest fan, wanted to build the first decentralized stock exchange atop Bitcoin but found it too slow and expensive to coopt.
BitWage was created to enable salaries in Bitcoin and begin the much needed "closed-loop" system that would enable people to be paid in bitcoin, and in turn pay rent, buy groceries, and one day pay taxes in bitcoin. Never needing to cash out to Fiat. These are the dreams of those who support Bitcoin Cash. This is why there is such passion behind this movement.
What does this have to do with Roger Ver? Nothing.
The first wave of Bitcoin Cash adoption has already begun. And its coming from Merchants. Merchants who've become unable to conduct business with BTC due to high fees and 24+ hr transaction times. Cores failure to keep Bitcoin relevant and functional is the reason Bitcoin Cash is seeing any success at all with Merchants and users. Bitcoin Cash never needed to exist. It exists because of Core.
Before the shit finally hit the fan, Brian Armstrong, CEO of Coinbase flew to meet with Core developers to try and finally get a solution in place. He walked away from that meeting declaring: Having Core as the only Dev Team is Bitcoin's Biggest Systemic Risk:
He wrote:
"The Core team contains some very high IQ people, but there are some things which I find very concerning about them:"
1) Some of them show very poor communication skills or a lack of maturity — this has hurt bitcoin’s ability to bring new protocol developers into the space.
2) They prefer ‘perfect’ solutions to ‘good enough’. And if no perfect solution exists *they seem ok with inaction*, even if that puts bitcoin at risk.
3) They seem to have a strong belief that bitcoin will not be able to scale long term, and any block size increase is a slippery slope to a future that they are *unwilling to allow** .*
"Even though core says they are ok with a hard fork to 2MB (they have it on their own roadmap, just very far in the future), they refuse to prioritize it. They prefer to withhold something that could help the network now, because they don’t trust the community to make educated decisions in the future"
Bitcoin Cash is the solution to the problems Brian outlines above.
Bitcoin Cash exists because of Core. Not because of Roger Ver.
Bitcoin Cash solves a problem that has remained unsolved for too many years.

Here's the [link]1 to today's press release, and below is the text -- no idea whether this is legit...am naturally very skeptical

Visionary Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto to Reveal Identity

Founder of Satoshi Nakamoto Renaissance Holdings to disclose the origins of his iconic pseudonym and the word Bitcoin on Sunday, Aug. 18, in the first installment of his three-part daily epiphany “My Reveal” on [link]11 , and [link]12

Email [Print Friendly ]2 ShareAugust 16, 2019 16:00 ET | Source: Ivy McLemore & Associates
NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- After a decade of anonymity, Satoshi Nakamoto will break his silence in Part I of his “My Reveal” Sunday, Aug. 18, at 4 p.m. EDT on the Satoshi Nakamoto Renaissance Holdings website, [[link]11 **]3 , and the Ivy McLemore & Associates website, [[link]12 **]4 .
In addition to his real-life identity, Nakamoto will use “My Reveal” to divulge such facts as his country of origin, education, professional background, and why he has yet to move any of his 980,000 bitcoins.
Indicative of the compelling evidence he presents in each part of the series, Nakamoto will illustrate the role that cyphers and encryption related to his devotion to Chaldean numerology played in many decisions in his creation of Bitcoin.
Nakamoto also will disclose why he chose the date August 18 not only to register bitcoin.org in 2008, but also to release Part I of “My Reveal” this coming Sunday on the 11th anniversary of his registration of bitcoin.org through AnonymousSpeech.com.
Nakamoto’s revelations will culminate Tuesday in Part III with his introduction of Tabula Rasa, his clean-slate vision for Bitcoin’s transformational rebirth, and the declaration of his identity.
The final two parts of Nakamoto’s “My Reveal” will post to [[link]11 **]5 and [[link]12 **]6 on Monday and Tuesday at 4 p.m. EDT.
