Deborah McCrimmon Litigates Cryptocurrency

Deborah McCrimmon Litigates Cryptocurrency

Born with a sense of responsibility and a commitment to community, Deborah McCrimmon is naturally inclined to help others. As an undergraduate at University of California, Davis, she was torn between earning a master’s degree in social work or attending law school. “Which path did I want to go down?” McCrimmon says. After careful consideration, she chose law, thinking it would open more avenues to assist others. Being a lawyer, she says, is the best of both worlds.

McCrimmon serves as the vice president and deputy general counsel of litigation and employment at Ripple Labs, a San Francisco-based, business-facing technology company leveraging crypto to transfer funds across international borders. Since its founding in 2012, Ripple uses crypto and blockchain solutions to improve moving value.

McCrimmon initially joined Ripple in 2018 as director of litigation. Almost three years later, the US Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) sued Ripple. The SEC sued Ripple alleging the company raised funds through an unregistered, ongoing digital asset securities offering. The SEC contends that the digital asset XRP is an investment contract under the Securities Act. “We vehemently disagree with that characterization,” says the attorney.

Georgia Power begins loading fuel into one of Plant Vogtle’s new units

  • Why it matters
  • By Drew Kann and Michael E. Kanell, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution —

    Company says it expects Unit 3 to be in service by the first quarter of 2023

    WAYNESBORO — Georgia Power announced Friday that engineers at Plant Vogtle have begun loading fuel into the first of two new reactors at the site, a significant step toward generating electricity from the first commercial nuclear units built in the U.S. in three decades.

    Technicians placed the first of 157 nuclear fuel assemblies inside Unit 3 just before midnight Thursday and worked through the night. The transfer of uranium rods from the unit’s spent fuel pool into the reactor will continue through the weekend, said Jeremiah Haswell, Georgia Power’s project oversight director.

    Once complete, startup testing will begin to ensure the unit’s coolant and steam supply system are functioning as designed with fuel in the reactor. From there, the company said operators would bring the plant from cold shutdown to 100% power, before eventually synchronizing the unit with the grid and sending electricity out to Georgia homes.

    The new Vogtle reactors are more than five years behind schedule and their total cost has ballooned to more than $30 billion, more than double what was initially projected. Ratepayers, meanwhile, have been paying for their construction for years and could see their bills climb in the years to come.

    Georgia Power says it still expects Unit 3 to be in service by the first quarter of 2023. Unit 4 remains under construction, but is projected to be online by the fourth quarter of 2023.

US Corps Developed COVID/BioWeapons in Ukraine Labs



Back in 2004 a European intelligence service commissioned some due diligence work on the activities of Bechtel National and the Technology Management Company, TMC, in Georgia and the region. The then-confidential report on these was written by, and payment made to, one of the contributions to this article, Jeffrey Silverman, who during his career was once stationed at a military storage site for chemical weapons in the US.

This report was forgotten until recently. Then it became known that Technology Management Co. Inc. had won part of a $975 million federal contract for small businesses offered by the U.S. Air Combat Command Joint Base at Langley-Eustis, Virginia, for companies providing counter-narcotics and global threats operational and logistical support. TMC Global Professional Services was eligible for this because it claims that it provides engineering and construction management services, to governmental and commercial clients in Central Asia, the former Soviet Union and internationally.

Meet The Disruptors: Jack Lifton Of One World Lithium On The Five Things You Need To Shake Up Your Industry

You do not find truly disruptive innovations from very large companies. If you truly want transformative, disruptive innovations, that will be found from an emerging enterprise. The largest companies can’t simply put aside how much money they have already invested (sunk costs) in the old technology.

As a part of our series about business leaders who are shaking things up in their industry, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jack Lifton.

Jack Lifton began his career in 1962 as a physical chemist specializing in the ultra-purification of rare metals and the preparation of their chemical compounds and alloys for use in the solid-state electronics and energy storage industries. He coined the now widely-used term “technology metals” in 2007 to describe those metals whose electronic properties enable the miniaturization of electronic technologies. In addition to his Advisor — Physical and Chemical Engineer role with One World Lithium, he also serves as Editor-in-Chief for Critical Materials and is the Chairman of the Critical Minerals Institute,

Lawyers seek data in Georgia election equipment breach


ATLANTA (AP) — A former Republican Party official in Georgia who was a fake elector in 2020 misrepresented her role in an alleged breach of voting equipment at a rural elections office two months after the last presidential election, according to a court filing.

The filing late Monday is part of a broader lawsuit challenging the security of the state’s voting machines that has been drawn into a separate investigation of former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn his loss in Georgia.

According to the latest filing, Cathy Latham helped coordinate the arrival of a computer forensics team at the Coffee County elections office on Jan. 7, 2021, welcomed them upon arrival and spent nearly all day there instructing them what to copy. That turned out to be “virtually every component of the voting system,” the court filing says. That directly refutes her testimony in a sworn deposition and her representations in filings with the court, the document states.

The filing comes in response to Latham’s attorneys’ attempt to quash subpoenas for her personal electronic devices, including any cellphones, computers and storage devices.

Robert Cheeley, an attorney for Latham, did not respond to an email seeking comment. He previously said his client doesn’t remember all the details of that day. But he said she “would not and has not knowingly been involved in any impropriety in any election” and “has not acted improperly or illegally.”
