TSU a new Social Network


New social network Tsu launched with little fanfare on October 14. The social network has had a cash injection of $7 million from Sancus Capital Prive and other investors before launch.



The company was founded in 2013 by tech entrepreneurs Sebastian Sobczak, Drew Ginsburg, Thibault Boullenger, and Jonathan Lewin.

Tsu differentiates itself from Facebook and newcomer Ello because it aims to reward its users. It displays ads and promises to pay its users for contributing and sharing original content.

It also is not precious about who joins its network. If you have a short code, you can join. If you know someone else’s short code (mine is @mindlock) you can create your own account on the network.

So what does this mean for business influencers and brands? Tsu keeps 10 percent of the revenue it earns from its ads. It gives the other 90 percent to its content creators and the people that share posts.

If you are social and share quality posts you will get paid cash. Tsu works with organic reach. It rewards influencers who publish content and who have lots of friends.

It is a bit like the MLM concept of pyramid selling, However Tsu is all about content. Tsu’s algorithm automatically tracks, measures, and distributes revenue to the appropriate user and their family tree of children and grandchildren.

The network wants you to create your own network and control it. It also wants you to receive revenue for the original content you own and post.

Its a very cool way of sharing revenue – surely something that other companies might be interested in copying.

Tsu wants its users to be able to monetise all of their content through sharing. According to Billboard, Tsu founder Sebastian Sobczak says: “Why should anyone commercially benefit from someone else’s image, likeness and work giving no financial return to the owner?”

Will Tsu provide its users with the features that other networks cannot? It certainly seems to have enjoyed significant buzz just one week after launch. Ello, which shot into the news the other week, appears to be slipping in its popularity if Google searches are anything to go by.

Most users who share and like content will not see their Tsu revenue increase by more than a few cents. But brands that produce awe inspiring, buzzy, great content will reap the rewards as their content ripples across the web.

Some users and influencers will make a lot of money. Brands might be able to justify some of their marketing investment. Most users — who only click to like and share — might find that Tsu is not the super platform they hoped it would be.

But for those who take the time to produce well-crafted, original content, this might be the platform they have been looking for. I will certainly shift my focus away from Facebook to give Tsu some quality social time.

In April 1998, the Mint announced the Millennium Coin Design Contest, a contest open to all Canadians to submit designs for twenty-four millennium quarters, one for each month of 1999 and 2000. The 1999 designs were meant to look back on Canada's past, while the 2000 designs looked to the future. While the 1999 coins were labeled with their month of issue, the 2000 coins were labeled with the relevant theme.

Lyrics: Logic - Under Pressure

Logic Under Pressure Song Lyrics 

Logic Under Pressure Song Lyrics
Logic - Under Pressure


"Under Presure" 

Work so fucking much, my greatest fear is Imma die alone
Every diamond in my chain, yeah, that's a milestone
People calling me, asking me for money, man
The only thing Imma give you motherfuckers is the dial tone

Flashbacks of a youngin' sipping that purple Kool Aid
Skipping school with my homies and chiefing reefer for two days
Running from the law, living how I'm living, fuck 'em all
Bumping Triple Six
Hennessy in my cup, driving through the sticks
Who the bitch, riding with me?
Man, the devil tryna get me
Motivated, undereducated, and hated
But finally getting cake like a happy belated
Bitch I made it, we on
Buy it, break it, roll it, light it, smoke it, inhale it, 
write it, record it, mix it, master it, press it up, unveil it
Feel like I've been waiting forever, forever to inherit
This is war, I declare it
Time is money, I can't spare it
Futuristic, so simplistic
Please decipher my linguistics
Slow it down, Robitussin
I'm the king, ain't no discussion
And now we blowing up like spontaneous human combustion
My consumption is the illest
Section eight, I know you feel this
On the come up, where they run up on you for nothing at all
Brighter than eleven suns, this the first, where my funds?
EBT, that's the card
I thank God, I thank God, but it's hard, but it's hard

Work so fucking much, my greatest fear is Imma die alone
Every diamond in my chain, yeah, that's a milestone
People calling me, asking me for money, man
The only thing Imma give you motherfuckers is the dial tone

God damn, god damn, we at it again
Me and my homies that know me blowing up like the Taliban
Yeah, my stress up, but I'm blessed up
Fuck around and get messed up
When I murder the rhyme, I'm living divine
You know that I'm one of a kind
Lemme get it right now, ho
Draped up and I'm dripped out
Right now, ho
Caked up 'til I cash out
And I got em all wondering how, so
On the down low, haters drown slow
On the down low, haters drown slow
Oh God, my God, we got it all right
Oh God, my God, we gotta get it right
These fuckers facades, they just a mirage, right?
I said these fuckers facades, they just a mirage, right?
Tell me that they love me, know damn well that they don't give a fuck
I be on that finger flipping killing shit up in the cut, that's what's up
All these bitches out here tryna gas it up
This is everything I ever wanted, I can't pass it up
Life changed in a year, couldn't happen fast enough
"Can I do it like you do it?" That's what they be asking us
White benz, black card, bitch better get your plastic up
Man, this shit is hella hard, but we never acting up
Live it up, hold on to your dream, don't ever give it up
Finally had my share of success, and shit, I can't get enough
Now they know my name through the nation
Cause my single like that good shit, man, always in rotation
Now they know Logic for Logic, not through my affiliations
Stacking profit on profit, from this music I'm making
Even Jesus had haters, so when you feeling forsaken
Tell 'em jealous Judas is who this is, and man, that'll break 'em
And Bitch I'm still the same
Dash of auto tune so y'all can feel the pain
Broke as fuck, back in that basement, not a dollar to my name
Chasing fame, chasing glory, 'til the day we make a story
Positive that life ain't mine, bitch you can take that shit to Maury

Work so fucking much, my greatest fear is Imma die alone
Every diamond in my chain, yeah, that's a milestone
People calling me, asking me for money, man
The only thing Imma give you motherfuckers is the dial tone

Little brother, this is your sister, you're busy, I getcha
But I insist you call me back cause I miss you

Well, I wish you would call
Cause lately you feel like I'm just not your sister at all, all...

Im sorry for calling and ballin
I'm all in and I fill like I'm falling
lately I feel like my children hate me
you tell me I'm beautiful
yet no man wants to date me
haunted by vivid memories of that man who raped me 
and lately I, I feel more and more like mommy I know I'm me
but still you always seem to pick up the phone
and somehow I feel, better
but you been answering me lesser and lesser
so I resorted to the pills in my dresser
I'm going 
and as for J-bone he left and he aint coming back
I hates him and if I see him I swear I tell him that
no longer cooking crack in my kitchen, cutting and selling that
he broke my heart that relationship been to hell and back

I been working hard, I been searching for God
I can feel the devil around me as they all applaud
Promise you won't forget me as you'll always be with me
and even when he gone I can call whenever he hit me 
under pressure

I've been feeling under pressure

[Beep]

Hey son, this is your father,  don't mean to bother,  how are you
Heard you were in town never saw you tried to call you where are you 
in Paris What a beautiful destination in paris right by the Eiffel
come now don;t be spiteful of all my small talk 
I think we're over due a long talk
When I see kids around the way I say how I'm your dad
It gets me think about incredible moments we've had
and on the real I'm trying so hard not to bug you
But do you think you could stop rapping about my drug use
I'm two years clean, no longer a phene ,  yeah
I'm 57 but I feel 19 and I love you I swear
Bobby, I know your there 
and when the time is right I know that your going to take care 
of any thing I need,  of your family
Can I have some tickets to your next show will you stand with me

I forgot to tell you I got divorced from your step mom
My mind going crazy but I still look hella calm

Maybe you could tell 

[Beep]

I've been feeling under pressure

[Phone message...]

Dear family Im so sorry that I've been distant
Everything changed in an instance
My times been has been inconsistent
I know that you've been insistent
I know that birthday, I missed it
I swore I told my assistant
But I guess my mind is in another place
thoughts off in another world
I started seeing another girl
it feel through man,  What a world
but I'm so focus on my craft
unemploying my staffed
such a perfectionist
I can't even finish this draft
this letter to the ones I loved the ones I miss
brothers and sisters that hit me up just to reminisce 
meanwhile, people outside of my blood
asking for favors, I don't owe you a fucking thing!
You best switch your behavior. Truly remarkable how
I barley know you, but somehow owe you
and you don't even know about the shit I go through
we anit spoken in a while tell me sister how your child
come now girl give me a smile 
come on girl don't do me foul
sorry, I ain't called before but I'm calling you right now
I heard you were popping E stop resorting the the vowel
how my mommy how she doing does she know what I'm pursuing
I aint talked to her in years that relationship she ruined
But sometimes I wake up and wonder just what the fuck I'm doing
they say that family is everything I swear that shit the truth
I should spend it all with y'all but I spend it in the booth
This is everything I love this is everything I need
never sacrifice this feeling even though my heart bleed
This is everything I love this is everything I need 
never sacrifice this feeling even though my heart bleed

under pressure

I've been feeling under pressure

Lyrics: Seether - Words As Weapons

Seether Words As Weapons Song Lyrics


"Words As Weapons"


All I really want is something beautiful to say

Keep me locked up in your broken mind
I keep searching, never been able
To find a light behind your dead eyes
Not anything at all

You keep living in your own lie
Ever deceitful and ever unfaithful
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified
Take everything from my world

Say, "Can you help me?" right before the fall
Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

Keep me dumb, keep me paralyzed
Why try swimming? I'm drowning in fable
You're not that saint that you externalize
You're not anything at all

(All I really want is something beautiful to say)

It's all so playful when you demonize
To spit out the hateful, you're willing and able
Your words are weapons of the terrified
You're nothing in my world

Say, "Can you help me?" right before the fall
Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

All I really want is something beautiful to say
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified
All I really want is something beautiful to say
You keep living in your own lie

All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

You keep living in your own lie
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified

All I really want is something beautiful to say

Say, "Can you help me?" right before the fall?
Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

All I really want is something beautiful to say
Words are weapons of the terrified
All I really want is something beautiful to say
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified

All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II 2013 Year of the Snake


In 2013, The Perth Mint's internationally renowned Australian Lunar Series II celebrates the Year of the Snake, the sixth auspicious animal in the Chinese zodiac.

The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar snake include 1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2013. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be intelligent, graceful, independent, analytical and charming.

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

The coin's high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.

The reverse of the coin depicts a representation of a snake curled around a tree branch. The Chinese character for 'snake' and the inscription 'Year of the Snake' also appear in the design with The Perth Mint's traditional 'P' mintmark.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.

No more than 7,500 of these coins will be released.
