Dutchsinse Global Earthquake Update - Spread of seismic activity across Pacific. Keep Watch. May 22, 2019

Seventy million years ago, the earth was inhabited by giant reptiles: gigantic lizards, colossal saurains, who slithered, swam, flew. Their reign lasted one hundred million years - whereas, according to the most optimistic estimates, man has had barely six million years.
This means that these species of reptiles had in order to become adapted and to evolve, an infinitely longer time than man. Furthermore, it is impossible to pretend that they represented an evolutionary failure: any species that lasts a hundred million years must be considered to be fully adapted. Yet few species that were contemporaries of those reptiles survive -- for example, certain crabs, which have not changed in three hundred million years. In fact, in less than one million years the giant reptiles entirely disappeared.
How and Why?
We can scarcely maintain that it was because a change in climate; for even when the climate changes, the oceans hardly vary, and many of these reptiles lived in the oceans.
It is impossible to believe that a higher form of life was able to exterminate them. This would have required a considerable army, whose traces we would certainly have found.
One amusing hypothesis is that our ancestors, the mammals, might have fed on dinosaur eggs. But it is only that: an amusing hypothesis: the icthyosaurs deposited their eggs in the oceans, out of their adversaries' reach.
It has been said that the grasses changed, and that the new grasses were too tough for the big reptiles. A completely unlikely hypothesis: large numbers of vegetation types have survived, on which they could have fed perfectly well. The giant tortoises of the Galapagos Islands, the ones that interested Darwin so much, did not die of hunger.
One could say that species grow old, become senile, and die. But this is bad logic: the preservation of the genetic code prevents a species from dying out. And why haven't those species that are still living after several hundred millions of years, such as crabs and cockroaches, become senile too?
None of these hypotheses hold. But something happened. What then? An ingenious hypothesis has been outlined by two Soviet scientists, V. I. Krasovkii and I. S. Chklovski, both of whom are eminent astrophysicists -- especially the latter, who is the author of some extremely important works in astrophysics and radio astronomy. It was Chklovski, in fact, who studied synchotron radiation and showed that relatively rapid and extremely violent events can be produced at the center of galaxies as well as in space in general.
Like it or not we’re rapidly moving into the world of 5G, or 5th generation cellular telecommunications. Why? Because the frequency bandwidths used currently by cell phones and similar technologies are becoming saturated. And also because we live in a world where people want more.
5G, and the Internet of Things (IoT) that goes with it, promises to give us more.
But more what?
Super-Fast Download Speeds
5G and IoT promises to connect us in our homes, schools, workplaces, cities, parks and open spaces to over a trillion objects around the world. It promises cars that drive themselves, washing machines that order their own washing powder and softener plus of course super fast downloads and streaming.
According to Fortune.com 5G will support at least 100 billion devices and will be 10 to 100 times faster than current 4G technology. (4G was already about 10 times faster than 3G).
It’ll bring download speed up to 10 Gigabits per second. This would let us have an entire building of people send each other data in close to no time, thus improving productivity.
What is 5G?
5G offers mind-blowing data capabilities, practically unrestricted call volumes and near infinite data broadcast. It does this by 5G using largely untapped bandwidth of the millimeter wave (MMW), which is between 30GHz and 300GHz, as well as some lower and mid-range frequencies.

His Impressive Background
Gvasalia has a decorated background in the fashion industry that makes him prime to be a leader in the industry.
He was fascinated by fashion from a young age while growing up in the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic in the Soviet Union during the 1980s and 1990s.
As a young adult, Gvasalia's passion for fashion brought him to the Royal Academy of Fine Arts located in Antwerp, Belgium. While he studied at the art academy, he developed a knack for creating unique designs that were well-received by his peers.
Shortly after he completed his studies, he was brought on as the design leader for Masion Martin Margiela and later, Louis Vuitton.
His Current Projects
Gvasalia has performed so well early in his career that he has landed other top positions at some of the leading fashion brands worldwide.
In October 2015, he was named as the creative director of Balenciaga, a Spanish luxury brand. Gvasalia got to work on creating his first collection for the brand, which was revealed to the world at the 2016 Paris Fashion Week.

In addition to his position at Balenciaga, Gvasalia is also the head designer at VETEMENTS. Gvasalia founded the brand in 2014 and is joined by a group of designer friends as they design unique clothing and shoes that have a wide appeal across different cultures.
Although the brand was headquartered in Paris, Gvasalia announced that it would be moving to Zurich, Switzerland in 2017.
Wrapping Up: Demna Gvasalia and Fashion
Demna Gvasalia is a name that's become synonymous with fashion in only a short period of time.
Despite Gvasalia's success, he's a designer who is not content on resting on his past achievements. It is perhaps that passion to push the envelope in the industry that helps him continue to design new fashions and create mass appeal.
One way that Gvasalia is unique when compared to his peers is his use of luxury materials on otherwise mundane objects.
For example, he is known for using neon colors on hourglass skirts and experimenting with the way the slits are placed on the garment.
