What’s with your two different schools?
Loretta: The Loretta Paganini School of Cooking is mostly recreation. We do from age 3 all the way up to 100. You get to learn, smell, taste and eat with people. It's a wonderful night out. Some partners come in together. Some singles have met here and dated.
I have had some of the same students since I’ve started, because we have such a variety of classes. If you like Italian, Korean, Indian, chocolate; if you are on a specific diet….
The International Culinary Arts and Sciences Institute is mostly for professionals. We have pastry and culinary programs for six months or two years. We have articulation agreements with Kent State and Lakeland; students can use their degree here toward an associate degree there.
Both recreational and professional schools are nationally accredited.
What exactly do you teach?
Loretta: You're training your palette. It's like doing exercises. The mouth is another organ. You have to work it.
We make you understand the tastes in your mouth. Citrus brings out flavors. If we add honey, how smooth the food becomes!
We follow recipes, but the techniques are more important. If you know the techniques, you can follow many recipes.
I cook with my heart. I don’t particularly like to fallow recipes but are important when you start out. You can put your creativity into it and change it. You can give it your own personal touch.
I’ve brought many celebrity chefs here, like Giuliano Bugialli, Martin Yan, Elaine Gonzalez, David Rosengarten, Peter Reinhart, Sara Leah Chase and Deborah Madison.

How do the students make out with homework?
Loretta:  You never know what to expect.
Once they had to debone and stuff a whole turkey. A student driving from Pittsburgh had put the complete turkey on his counter. The dog took it down and was munching on the leg. The student got another turkey leg and sewed in. You could see there was something wrong. The whole class started laughing.
One time the students had to bring in a whole fresh fish. A student went to pick hers up. It was so bad and old that couldn’t bring it to class. As she was driving to Chesterland crying. She passed the Trout Club and stop. They gave her a trout where rigor mortis had not set in. She got a great grade for thinking on her feet.
Successful grads?
Loretta: I taught Chef V, who has Citizen Pie, and Bill Cutler at Cru Uncorked. Kathleen Robinson has Pink Bandana bakery. We have graduates pretty much everywhere in the city. Another works in one of the best restaurants in Florence; another at Disney world.

What about your restaurant, Sapore?
Loretta: That's my baby. It's only about 30, 35 seats. We're only open Thursday through Saturday for dinner. The name means "taste" in Italian. We cook everything to order. It's very authentic Italian where everything is made in house. The students rotate there.
We also have a student cafe at the school on Saturdays. The students design the menu, cook and serve. You pay $30. You have a five-course lunch. You fill out a survey, and that is how the students are graded.
Do you teach private classes?
Loretta: Different companies do team-building here. They choose whatever menu they want to learn.
They’re stuffing zucchini. They’re making chicken piccata. They prep it. They cut it. They cook it. They plate it. They present it. They vote for their favorite. You see how focused people are.

Local sourcing?
Loretta: I get hysterical when people say, "We only source locally." What grows in January here?
But, when the season’s here, we have wonderful sources. We have Eddy’s and Patterson’s right here. We go to Rainbow Farms that delivers to us, Mayfield Creamery
What about your travels?
Loretta: I teach downstate and around the country. I teach in Sanibel in the wintertime. I cater there, too. I lead six gastronomic tours of Europe every year.

How’d you get into food?
Loretta: I'm from Bologna, the kitchen of Italy. My parents had a bakery. My mother, a pastry chef, was a woman before her time. She was on television. She was president of the chefs' association of Bologna.
I wanted to teach elementary school. But when you have parents in the business, you automatically work it after school: separate 100 eggs, wash the pastry bags…. Then I studied with famous chefs in Italy and Paris.
I came to New York with my husband, who went to medical school in Bologna. I started teaching friends in my own little kitchen.

Loretta Paganini says her career-minded students usually find jobs before graduation. Grant Segall, The Plain Dealer
Where’s Cleveland come in?
Loretta: We came for my husband's fellowship in nephrology at the Clinic. We were going to go back in two years. But they offered him a permanent job. When the Clinic offers you a job, you take it.
I was lonely here. My husband was working all the time. So I started doing classes, and the public really responded.
I kept outgrowing my space. We made a deal at Holy Rosary in 1981. We could use the kitchen as long as the priests got the leftovers.
Then Lakeland asked me to teach. And I was in Chardon for a couple years.
I’ve been in Chesterland since 1989. First, I bought a little gingerbread house. Then I bought the house next door. Then I bought 12 acres and built a 12,500-square-foot school.
I don’t think I would have been as successful done the school in New York. You have many more opportunity in Cleveland You never have an original idea in New York.

Medium rare? Grant Segall, The Plain Dealer

Here's a cake with a big head. Grant Segall, The Plain Dealer
How’s Cleveland’s food?
Loretta: When my friends in New York found out we were moving to Cleveland, they thought I was crazy or it was a joke. Cleveland was not a food destination.
But it’s amazing what has happened here in the last 30 years. Our food scene is one of the tops in the country. There are wonderful chefs that work here. They really believe in Cleveland. I’m one of them
We don’t have enough culinary students here. Even before they graduate, they have jobs.
Your hobbies?
Loretta: I do a lot of cooking and traveling.
My husband and I were pilots, but we don’t do it any more.
I go to the Shaker market or the one in Chagrin Falls. I enjoy all the ethnic markets here in Cleveland. I like the West Side Market. I’m very sad about what’s happening there.
I bring my children and grandchildren to the theaters. In Cleveland, they’re phenomenal. We go to all the museums. I love the Botanical Garden.
It’s a wonderful town to raise a family.

Polygon Reveals Details About Its Future Collaboration With LBank During AMA – Press release Bitcoin News – Bitcoin News

Published

on

PRESS RELEASE. Recently, LBank Exchange held an AMA session with the Polygon team, discussing Polygon’s achievements, collaborations, NFT and Gaming markets, Nightfall solution, future plans and so on. Here’s the summary of this AMA.
Ethereum is the blockchain development platform of choice, but it has limitations such as low throughput, poor UX, and no sovereignty. As a protocol and a framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks, Polygon breaks through these limitations by aggregating scalable solutions on Ethereum and supporting a multi-chain Ethereum ecosystem.
Polygon Outperforms Ethereum In-terms Of Active Users
As a layer 2 solutions aggregator built on top of Ethereum, Polygon has made some great achievements since its birth, its POS chain has over 2000 DApps live and processes over 7 million transactions daily. In fact, Polygon now has more daily active users than Ethereum.
MATIC, the token for the polygon network, is already live on trading platforms like LBank Exchange, and currently the trading volume of it is over 1 billion across exchanges. Polygon team is aiming to make more people hold MATIC tokens, and it’s hoping to see MATIC’s trading volume on LBank Exchange continue to grow as well.
Expanding the Polygon ecosystem
With the power to bring thousands of new users into blockchain, NFT and Gaming markets are strategic sectors that Polygon continues to focus on. There are already some of the largest gaming projects live on Polygon, such as Decentral Games, Sandbox, Somnium Space, Vulcan Verse, etc. As for NFT projects, there are OpenSea, Lazy.com, Autograph, etc.
The team will be bringing many more such games and NFT projects onto Polygon so that its community can enjoy more artwork and fun. In addition, Polygon allows for massive scalability, and compared to Ethereum, minting costs on Polygon are 100,000 times cheaper on average.
Polygon also has products designed for enterprise customers who need privacy and scalability, such as Nightfall, a one-of-a-kind, privacy-focused Rollup that combines Optimistic Rollups with Zero-Knowledge (ZK) cryptography commonly used in ZK Rollups. It creates a scalable and private hybrid of the two popular technologies.
Polygon Nightfall has the power to bring many large enterprises into blockchain, the team believes that it will lead to a large number of transactions on Polygon and further add new projects and users to the Polygon ecosystem.
Big Plans Ahead
The Polygon team has already got some big plans ahead. On the technical side, Polygon is investing heavily into ZK and ZK Rollup technology, for example, the team has already spent $250 million on acquiring Hermez, which is a decentralized, open-source ZK Rollup optimized for secure, low-cost and usable token transfers on the wings of Ethereum.
Polygon has also acquired another 4 teams to build more ZK Rollup chains, to achieve the goal of building highly scalable EVM enabled ZK Rollup technology. In addition, Polygon has updates coming for its POS chain and details on EIP 1559 implementation.
On the business side, Polygon has many exciting updates as well, with lots of big DApps and integrations planned. Significantly, Arjun, Polygon’s Head of Growth, points out that LBank is enhancing its global branding. He also assures that the love of the community makes the team achieve its goals, so it will continue to collaborate with LBank Exchange to bring more Polygon projects and tokens to the community. Polygon team will keep posting on its official social media accounts such as Twitter to reveal more details about future plans and latest updates.

‘Trillions Of Dollars’—Bitcoin Braced For A Massive Earthquake As The Price Of Ethereum, Binance’s BNB, Solana, Cardano And XRP Soar – Forbes

Published

on

Bitcoin and cryptocurrency prices have rocketed over the last month, with the combined crypto market surging towards $3 trillion as ethereum, Binance’s BNB, solana, cardano and XRP make double-digit percentage gains.
Subscribe now to Forbes’ CryptoAsset & Blockchain Advisor and discover hot new NFT and crypto blockbusters poised for 1,000% gains
The bitcoin price has climbed from around $45,000 per bitcoin in early October to all-time highs of $67,000 late last month, in part due to the launch of the first U.S. bitcoin futures exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Bitcoin has recently dropped back—despite huge new price targets even as ethereum and its smaller rivals hit fresh highs.
Now, Michael Saylor, a bullish bitcoin buyer, has predicted “trillions of dollars” will flow into bitcoin once the U.S. regulator approves a fully-fledged bitcoin ETF—helping bitcoin to replace gold and become the primary asset index for the Western world.

The bitcoin price has surged through 2021 but much of the crypto market’s gains have come from … [+] ethereum, Binance’s BNB, cardano, solana, and XRP.
“To do that, you need the spot ETF,” said Saylor, the chief executive of business intelligence software company MicroStrategy, speaking this week at Bloomberg‘s Financial Innovation Summit. “And once these spot ETFs roll, I think you’ll see billions, then tens of billions, then hundreds of billions, then trillions of dollars flow into them.”
Over the last year, Saylor has pivoted Microstrategy to a bitcoin acquisition vehicle, buying more than 110,000 bitcoins. The value of the company’s bitcoin holdings is around $7 billion, making up almost all of MicroStrategy’s $8 billion market capitalization.
Saylor said he expects a U.S.-based spot bitcoin ETF would act as an institutional on-ramp for investors who want bitcoin exposure, adding he’ll continue buying bitcoin via MicroStrategy. Such funds are already live in other countries, including Canada.
The launch of two U.S. bitcoin futures ETFs in October generated huge media attention, with the ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF accumulating more than $1 billion in assets in mere days. However, some, including general partner at Castle Island Ventures Nic Carter, have called futures-based ETFs “inferior” as they don’t give direct exposure to the underlying asset. Carter, speaking alongside Saylor, said a spot bitcoin ETF would be “the hottest commodity ETF launch of all time.”
“The right answer is: let investors buy a trillion dollars worth of bitcoin via an ETF because the ETFs plug into the existing security structure, the existing prime brokerages, the existing collateral packages,” said Saylor.

The bitcoin price has risen more than 300% over the last 12 months, making bitcoin a $1 trillion … [+] asset. However, bitcoin has been left in the dust by ethereum, Binance’s BNB, solana, cardano, and XRP.
Meanwhile, bullish bitcoin and crypto market watchers continue to predict prices will surge into the end of 2021. While bitcoin has lost ground this week, ethereum has added almost 5%, with its too biggest rivals, Binance’s BNB and solana, both surging by around 20%.
“Intraday volatility is completely normal after such a bullish month, but the higher time frame is looking solid for now,” Lukas Enzersdorfer-Konrad, chief product officer at Vienna-based bitcoin and crypto trading platform Bitpanda, said in emailed comments. “The crypto market is more integrated into the world economy every day which only shows how important it is for bigger institutions but on the other hand, is also under pressure from macro events.”
“A melt-up in bitcoin and ethereum into year-end is likelier than retracement, we believe, after 2021 corrections cleansed speculative positions, and with increasing demand and adoption, and declining supply, sustaining a bull market,” Bloomberg Intelligence senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone wrote in his latest market report, pointing to a “tidal wave of U.S. ETFs.”
“The startup of U.S. ETFs and the fact that cryptos counter China bans limit downside risks.”

XRP Set for Massive Breakout With Altcoins Poised to Steal the Show From Bitcoin, Predicts Top Crypto Analyst – The Daily Hodl

Published

on

One closely followed crypto analyst is bullish on XRP and thinks that altcoins are in a prime position to outpace Bitcoin (BTC).
The pseudonymous analyst known as Credible Crypto tells his 257,400 Twitter followers that XRP’s price structure looks very similar to data-sharing protocol OriginTrail, whose native token TRAC just rallied more than 300% following its recent listing on Coinbase Pro.
He expects XRP to follow a similar path to TRAC, taking the cryptocurrency back to its previous all-time high of $3.40.
“The XRP chart below is from my last YouTube video on XRP made in August. The chart next to it is another coin that I came across today that has the same structure but is one step ahead with the 5th wave already in progress. Do you see it now?”
After Ethereum’s new breakout against Bitcoin (ETH/BTC), the trader anticipates ETH’s next leg up to kick off a new alt season.
He also notes that Bitcoin dominance has likely already topped out, further paving the way for an altcoin rally.
“ETH/BTC broke out today, closing above the key resistance zone I was watching. This is a great sign and indicates BTC dominance may have already found its top and alts may be about to steal the show, led by ETH.”
The analyst says that Bitcoin dominance dropping doesn’t necessarily mean that BTC’s price will drop.
No it just means that if BTC is rising alts will probably rise faster. We saw this in 2017 in the latter stages of the bull run as lots of new money started pouring in.
— CrediBULL Crypto (@CredibleCrypto) November 3, 2021

Taking a closer look at the top crypto asset, Credible says that Bitcoin is close to deciding whether it wants to break to the upside or continue ranging.
According to his analysis, a rejection of $63,000-$64,000 could take BTC back to major support around $58.000.
“63-64k tagged BTC. Now to see if we break out to new ATH [all-time high] or reject soon and continue to range.”
