Bitcoin 101

Everything you need to know to start cranking out cash with your PC

BY JULIAN REICHE

Bitcoin is a new kind of virtual currency that exists only in the mysterious world of the Internet. It sprang up after the financial crisis of 2008, when people fearing that the sky was falling began investing in gold bars and silver coins. Many geeks also feared the apocalypse was nigh, but they chose to invest not in old-world currencies, but in a new currency created from scratch and made up of digital bits. That currency is Bitcoin.

What’s really interesting about this brand-new

BEWARE OF THE OFFICE

In a recent issue of Cosmo we featured examples of bully bosses, and we had masses of emails from readers whose lives had been made a misery by such behaviour. As a result, we commissioned a survey, in which more than half of you told us you’d suffered bullying at work but had been too scared to speak up.

Eroding confidence

Amber*, 26, a PR executive from Kent, knows how traumatic work can be when you’re being bullied. «Many people get ‘Sunday dread’, but the intense fear and panic I experienced in my last job was unbearable,» she says. «It

It’s no secret — an organised wardrobe will save you plenty of time getting dressed and ready to go.

But we’re only human, so the next best thing is to determine how much closet space you really need, and reorganise your belongings so everything has a place. «It’s a fact that what you can’t see, you won’t wear,» says Georgina Wong, CEO of Asian Professional Organisers.

Pre-Ride Checks For Pros

Riding a motorcycle is the closest thing to flying without actually getting off the ground, except you don’t fall as far if something goes horribly wrong. Because the stakes are higher up in the wild blue yonder, pilots perform pre-fight checks on their planes before every takeoff. But just because it’s only a few feet from the saddle of your bike to the ground instead of a few thousand is no reason not to give your bike a quick once-over before every ride.

That’s a true statement, but let’s be realistic. If you commute on a
