Christina Perri confirms she’s expecting a baby girl | Entertainment

Christina Perri is pregnant.

The 35-year-old singer has confirmed via social media that she’s expecting her second child with husband Paul Costabile.

Christina – who has a four-year-old daughter called Carmella, but has previously suffered pregnancy losses – said on Twitter: “Rosie sent Carmella a little sister and we’re very excited. We’ve been having all the feelings, but mostly trying every day to choose joy. [flower emoji] (sic)”

In the social media post, Carmella opens a gift box containing sonogram shots and she shows it to the camera. Confetti subsequently floats up into the sky and Carmella kisses her mom’s growing baby bump.

Last year, meanwhile, Christina admitted she didn’t think she’d “love again” after losing her baby daughter.

The ‘Jar of Hearts’ singer confirmed she’d suffered a miscarriage in early 2020, while her daughter Rosie was stillborn in November of the same year.

She later said via Instagram: “When we lost our daughter last November I thought I would never be OK again. I thought I would never laugh or play again or dance again or love again… and for lots of months I didn’t.

“But then I started trying to heal and learn how to live with the pain and grief right along side of the love and joy. How to find even the tiniest purpose in our tragedy and to find something to learn and grow from and grow towards.

“It was so challenging and exhausting, but I can’t share enough about the power of inner work and healing.”

Christina also admitted her recovery from the heartbreak had been a slow process.

She added: “I kept telling myself it would all be better by the summer. it would all be better by ocean city. I thought if we could just make it to ocean city we would be OK. And it was true. We made it here and we are OK.”


Core Ethereum developer details changes to expect after the Merge

Core Ethereum (ETH) developer Tim Beiko has outlined a series of suggestions and expectations about the upcoming Merge for applicatio and protocol developers on Ethereum.

For the average users of apps and protocols, Beiko simply suggested testing things out to ensure nothing is broken as more tests are executed. He tweeted on May 24 “Run stuff, if something is unclear or broken, leave a comment.”

Beiko urged users and developers to “pay attention and make sure you are ready” for the Merge.

The Merge is the highly complex and long-awaited moment when the Ethereum network switches from Proof-of-Work (PoW) to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus. At that point, it will be known as “Consensus Layer” and is expected to occur in August this year.

Testing on several testnets has been focused on ensuring there are no cross-client issues or that existing applications don’t entirely break after the Merge. Beiko pointed out…


XRP Has Broken Below Its Long Standing Support, What’s Next?

XRP flashed lateral price movement at the time of writing. The coin register some gains over the last 24 hours however, it was quite minor. Bulls are not completely back in the market yet. For bulls to be back in the market, it is essential for XRP to move above the $0.60 mark.

Technical outlook of XRP hasn’t completely pointed towards a recovery because the bears are still in charge of the price. The one day chart of the XRP has continued to depict bearishness on the chart. Over the last week, XRP fell by almost 7%.

Although the coin has printed a symmetrical pattern on the chart, which also means that XRP has a chance of moving on the upside it is uncertain if the altcoin will be able to hold onto its current price action.

This directional breakout from the symmetrical triangle could either make the altcoin trade towards the north or towards the south.

The altcoin was trading at $0.41 on the one day chart. XRP was also trading beneath its long standing support line of $0.42. The asset hadn’t gone below the aforementioned price level in almost over a year. A push below the current price mark will make the coin trade beneath the $0.30.

A break below the $0.30 price mark could push XRP near the $0.24 price level. Since the coin registered a small symmetrical triangle and it can be so that XRP can either go up or down from here, the overhead resistance for XRP was at $0.48.

For bearish thesis to be invalidated the coin needs to trade above the $0.56 resistance mark.

BoE Governor Bailey Shares ECB President Lagarde’s Anti-Crypto Views

Key Insights:

  • The TerraUSD and Terra LUNA collapse has given central banks a platform to deliver crypto warnings.
  • On Monday, Bank of England Governor Bailey talked of cryptos having no intrinsic value.
  • Bailey’s comments follow ECB President Lagarde’s comments from the weekend. Lagarde said that cryptos are worthless.

This week, Bank of England Governor Bailey talked crypto. In the week ending May 13, the crypto market experienced its first major ‘Lehmanesque’ collapse.

Stablecoin TerraUSD (UST) lost its peg to the dollar in a collapse to an all-time low of $0.04, sending Terra LUNA into oblivion.

The Terra collapse led to a broad-based crypto sell-off, wiping out $472 billion from the crypto market and a bitcoin (BTC) slide to a May 12 low of $26,591.

In the wake of the market collapse, central bankers seized the opportunity to crypto-bash.

Bank of England Governor Bailey Goes Anti-Crypto, again

On Monday, former government advisor Jimmy McLoughlin interviewed Bank of England Governor Bailey on Jimmy’s Jobs of the Future. The 49-minute podcast included questions on Russian sanctions, the economy, and cryptocurrencies.

Bailey said that products like bitcoin were not “practical means of payment.”

Governor Bailey also took the opportunity to send a warning on cryptocurrencies, stating that they have no “intrinsic value” while noting they do have “extrinsic value.”

The BoE Governor also explained the value of digital assets by saying, “people collect all sorts of things.”

While negative on cryptocurrencies, Bailey acknowledged the benefits of the underlying technology that supports the transformation into digital currencies.

Bailey’s comments followed an April interview when the Governor said cryptocurrencies were a “New Front Line” for criminal scams.

The anti-crypto commentary followed ECB President Lagarde, who spoke on Sunday, calling cryptos worthless.

Binance to Launch Payment and Trading in Dubai

Binance continues the path to its first headquarters in the Middle East with an upcoming launch of payment and trading services in Dubai.

Binance is working with local banks while reciting country managers and compliance officers in Dubai and Bahrain for the launch, according to an «SCMP» report citing Dubai-based regional head of Middle East and North Africa Richard Teng

«Regulators in the Middle East region see that supporting the development of crypto assets is critical in developing the Web 3 ecosystem,» said Teng. «Trading cryptocurrencies is just one of the business areas that we could deploy in the region, and there are many more opportunities besides trading.»

Rebuilding Stage

Binance was first reportedly in talks to establish a Dubai headquarter in December last year before obtaining a virtual asset service provider (VASP) license in March.

Founded by crypto billionaire Changpeng «CZ» Zhao, Binance is seeking to regain regulatory trust after watchdogs from Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan and the U.K. issued multiple warnings over the past few years.

«In some parts of the Middle East, we often communicate with one single regulator which has a consistent framework that straddles banks, asset management, exchanges and broker-dealers,» said Teng. «That cuts out a lot of disagreement from multiple agencies, which may differ in their views about how crypto should be regulated.»

Veteran Investor Jim Rogers Optimistic About Future of Crypto Money – Bitcoin News

Renowned investor Jim Rogers, who co-founded the Quantum Fund with billionaire investor George Soros, says he has “optimism about the future of crypto money.” However, he is skeptical of central bank digital currencies and warned that the world is looking for something to replace or compete with the U.S. dollar.

Jim Rogers on Bitcoin, Crypto, and U.S. Dollar

Veteran investor Jim Rogers shared his outlook for cryptocurrency and the U.S. dollar in an interview published by the Economic Times Markets Sunday. Rogers is George Soros’ former business partner who co-founded the Quantum Fund and Soros Fund Management.

Despite the Fed and other central banks stating that they would start normalizing, Rogers stressed, “There are still gigantic amounts of money printing all over the world.” He opined:

One should not listen to these guys. They rarely tell the truth … The U.S. Fed has more than doubled their balance sheet in the very short period of time.

He added: “Even if they cut back for a while, it is not going to be enough to make up for the gigantic money printing that has been going on.”

Commenting on the future outlook for the U.S. dollar, Rogers said: “I do not like saying it but the U.S. is the largest debtor nation in world history and the world is looking for something to replace it or compete with the dollar.”

He explained that after Russia began its invasion of Ukraine, the U.S. just blocked Russia’s assets. Reiterating that “America just took the Russian’s money away,” Rogers warned:

Well, people do not like that and so many countries in the world … are looking for something to compete with the U.S. dollar.

Rogers also discussed cryptocurrency during the interview. Replying to a question about whether he owns any bitcoin, the veteran investor revealed:

I do not own any cryptocurrency. I wish I had bought bitcoin at $1, at $5.

The Quantum Fund co-founder proceeded to talk about central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). He…
