We are developing Lightning : an open protocol layer that leverages the power of blockchains and smart contracts to make cheap, fast, private transactions available to anyone around the world. User growth and application innovation in the blockchain ecosystem are driving the need for new protocol layers that build on the security and ubiquity of blockchains. Lightning is one of the first and most essential of these protocols, providing blockchains with the scalability to support magnitudes more users as well as the flexibility to support a new wave of financial applications.
The most advanced and most developer-friendly implementation of the Lightning Network protocol. provides superior reliability, interoperability and security for the next generation of global-scale financial applications.
An open platform developed by Lightning Labs that enables users with mobile devices to conduct blockchain and Lightning Network transactions quickly and easily. Neutrino provides “light clients” with security and privacy that weren’t available with previous light client concepts.
The Lightning protocol is developed in the open, all specifications and related code are open source. Contributors are welcome!
Lightning is an overlay network built on top of an existing blockchain protocol. Similar to how the Internet is built in layers, Lightning creates an entirely new layer, offering instant, high-volume payments that are denominated in the blockchain’s native currency. Our implementation, lnd, has been primarily developed for Bitcoin, and we have also integrated Litecoin support.
The Lightning Network maintains and contributes to Bitcoin's core decentralization property, with the network being composed of a diffuse network of many small nodes routing payments amongst each other. This topology is designed to disincentivize centralized points of failure.
In order to use Lightning, you'll need a Lightning-enabled Bitcoin or Litecoin wallet. A Lightning wallet has all the same functionality as a regular wallet, but also allows one to instantly send/receive payments via Lightning. You can join our Slack or mailing list for additional details on testing lnd and Lightning wallets.
Lightning doesn't use its own token or currency, it only uses Bitcoin when on the Bitcoin blockchain. Lightning sends payments using the transaction format of the underlying blockchain. When running on Bitcoin, Lightning is actually exchanging native Bitcoin transactions—without the need to broadcast every transaction to the chain. This combined with a series of pre-signed contracts enables users on Lightning to send instant, low-fee payments, without having to trust central intermediaries.
As a species, our survival is dependent on our oceans being healthy and full of life, yet only four percent are currently protected. This means that vast areas are left unregulated and vulnerable to ever-increasing human pressures such as unsustainable fishing, irresponsible waste management and climate change.
If we don’t protect marine life from destructive human activities now, the oceans face a ‘sixth mass extinction’; an extinction caused by humans.
Marine megafauna play a critical role in the health of our oceans’ vast ecosystems, and thus the survival of all marine life. The stakes have never been higher for these ocean giants, which is why the Marine Megafauna Foundation is on a mission to save them using pioneering research, education, and sustainable conservation solutions.Marine Megafauna Foundation

New College- and Career-Ready standards emphasize the importance of speaking, listening, and conversing not only as a means for learning, but also as a valuable goal of learning. Starting October 3, Professor Kenji Hakuta and Drs. Sara Rutherford-Quach and Jeff Zwiers at Stanford Graduate School of Education once again will offer an online professional development course that focuses on student conversations, Constructive Classroom Conversations: Improving Student-to-Student Interactions. The overall purpose of this course is help teachers prepare students, and particularly language learners, to have in-depth conversations about content area concepts and topics.
This course consists of six online sessions, with two or three weeks devoted to each session. Each session includes expert video screencasts, classroom video clips, readings and resources, and assignments that will prompt participants to strengthen the curricular foundations of communication. Participants are free to complete the session tasks at their own pace as long as they finish them within the allotted time. Participants will learn to:

Rupture provides a variable called

variables can also have as many values as you'd like, so don't feel limited to the number in the default value. Now, imagine that the variables listed here represent a scale on your site, with each slice having a number, as such:
As mentioned above, you can have as many slices as you want, they just count up from the first one at index zero. So that's the scale. Now let's move on to the mixins.
So there are two “categories” of mixins that are a part of rupture. The first is a very basic set designed to simply shorten and sweeten standard media queries, and the second is a very close port of the fantastic breakpoint-slicer library, which can be used almost as a grid. We'll go through these in order.
