Leave a LegacyOpening our hearts to sing the expressions of choice, we answer the call. We are not here by accident. Our path has been predetermined and our walk is a message of authenticity. A NEW technology is set to revolutionise how we shop and the products we buy, giving more power to Australian consumers to know exactly what they’re getting and where it came from.It might take years for it to fully infiltrate the retail and produce sectors, but a relatively new type of digital technology known as blockchain is tipped to become a common part of the modern shopping experience.So what is blockchain?Put simply, it a kind of decentralised digital ledger that records transactions and information both chronologically and publicly and is shared on an online networkImportantly the records cannot be changed and are incorruptible. Blockchain is the technology that underpins notorious cryptocurrency Bitcoin and uses a form of math called cryptography to ensure that records can be counterfeited or altered.So how will this apply to your grocery shopping?If the system spreads through the retail sector like Microsoft and many other tech companies are currently working towards it means consumers would theoretically be able to scan a particular product with their smartphone and see the journey it took to get to the store shelf. For instance, customers could see how long fruit took to get from the farm to the shelf and whether it was ever frozen.It could quickly show you where, when and how a product such as a T shirt in Kmart or a bag of fair trade coffee beans was produced and shipped to you, says futurist and digital consultant Chris Riddell.Australia does have strong regulations around food advertising and the claims a company makes about its product.

Canada answered and in a couple of cases dodged questions about separate investigations into McNair’s death and the program, and about his communication with Coach DJ Durkin, who remains on administrative leave..
It makes perfect sense. The cars probably cost Mattel 50 75 cents to make, so they sell a car to a factory worker for maybe anywhere around $1 $5. I doubt the factory workers have a large amount of money so they in turn sell the cars on eBay for at least $15 if not more to the people who want them early.
I would have murdered someone to be making what you are making now at that point, but I get how you feel. My business ventures after the hard reboot did ok like yours. We made a living, but it sure wasn’t passive and ultimately weren’t worth it. Today, the novel would not even be considered risqu, but in the late 50s it was impossible to get it published in North America. So Jock turned to the same man everyone else did when they could not find a publisher in those days: Maurice Girodias, editor of the infamous Olympia Press in Paris. Girodias had published J P Donleavy The Ginger Man, Vladimir Nabokov Lolita, and The Naked Lunch by William S Burroughs.
