    What makes up a blockchain?

    "When people discuss blockchain, often the concept is too abstract to grasp. In many respects, you need a phD to understand it. So it was fortuitous for Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA) members that the group’s first meeting in Atlanta recently had just such a person."

    Complicated or not, it's coming... And will simplify/verify complicated transactions.

    Oh, oh.. you mean the big truckload guys are going to raise pay 5 cents per mile over 5 years, if you have at least 10 years with them, no accidents, tickets, and your truck gets 10 mpg....

    Most owner/operators aren't making much more today than they did 10-15 years ago. And the trucks are getting more expensive every year.

    UPSF Truckload doesn't even pay a dollar a mile.

    FedEx - Low Yield, Strong Growth
    9:04 am, Sat, Dec. 2, 2017, by The Dividend Guy

    https://seekingalpha.com/article/41...1d25co7:1d3e270e641b0ab2db5fa1b5c9bb4b55&dr=1

    "Dividend Growth Perspective
    While FDX doesn't offer a great yield, it has still increased its dividend for 16 consecutive years."

    "On top of not offering an interesting yield for years, FDX only started to take its dividend growth policy seriously in 2014. Since January 1, 2014, the company increased its payout by 233.30%."


    Pretty good read.

    Sometimes we need to step away for a bit. Yes, we have, in fact, been in contact with administration officials though...
