How to Avoid the coronavirus and fear-mongering

So many publicists, media outlets, and dangerous people with a large following are pumping an insane amount of fear into human beings around the world, dictating their every move, perception, and even mind. People, welcome to my power post. You’re going to learn, in short, how to avoid the noise in the world.

1. CNN, FOXNEWS, & All forms of Media are CANCER.

These people don’t give a damn about your well-being; they only care about their penny-ad clicks and ratings. Whatever brings more people in, that’s what they pump out. CNN has a disgusting amount of race-bait articles because they know that’s what their followers like….FOXNEWS, too. These are cancerous beings, and to be honest, you won’t learn anything from it. Al Jazeera, BBC, and the rest….they will not help you with anything but their sole purpose for existing is to control your mind so you can pump more money into pharmaceutical industries.

2. Stay away from old people and their fear-mongering.

Sounds hateful, but an un-reputable Thai garbage news website employs they mega-old foreigners who have such a dim mindset on reality. I wasted about 10 minutes of my life reading a 65-year-old man’s article on “why we should care about the coronavirus,” and he incessantly told people “NOT TO COMPARE TO THE SEASONAL FLU” and how dangerous it is. It was laughable, because this is the first time in humankind that we have literally a SEASONAL FLU that’s disrupting their entire global economy based on fear-mongering. No one cancels plans if someone is sick with the flu, so why with the coronavirus? He tried to compare the percentages of deaths by coronavirus to the flu and that’s also incomparable, just because the flu had taken millions to the grave in the last decade. People, it’s all about perspective. This is the most opportunistic time in terms of stocks, real estate, building websites, launching businesses, etc. All the heavy-hitters have gotten smashed, and this is a great opportunity for the little guy.

3. If it doesn’t serve you, drop it.

I look at the numbers game on a website. I look at a live map fool of numbers, once a day, so I can see what’s happening around the world. I’m in Thailand, a place that is completely undercutting the suspected number of coronavirus cases, but I know I would NEVER catch it because my immune system and the caution I use (living in a polluted city has enabled that).

4. Basic steps and forget it

Media-fast — #1. “The world is burning! The world is burning! OMG! We’re going to die!” After that, they tell you to do something…and you do, ultimately profiting them. The media is a parasite of the world. If it doesn’t serve you, you drop it. Now, if you’re in an infected zone or dealing with people face-to-face, use caution. I can only speak by experience.

Busy day: I’m on a train….I have an N95 mask on — no matter what — because of the pollution. I don’t touch rails or anything on the train, just the handle to my luggage. Everywhere I go I take a portable sanitizer. The destinations I go to have sanitizers and check temperatures, which is technically me free medical checkup. Every week I go to my workplace on the weekend and they check my temperature, so week-after-week, I see if I have a fever, which is always NNNOOOOOOO.

I avoid large gatherings and touching services. When I exchange money, give money, or get something handed to me, I DO NOT adjust my mask or put my fingers near my eyes until I get situated and get sanitizer. I listen closely to people who are coughing. On the train, if someone coughs, I move to another car. If someone sneezes, it’s never near me….but I still move to another car. If you’re sitting directly to someone, try just standing up (if possible) and WEAR A MASK. The dumb ass doctors of America say “NO! STOP IT! IT WON’T HELP!” It’s because they’re working for the garbage pharmaceutical companies that are making billions and want more people to get sick. Whatever they say…do the OPPOSITE!

Don’t touch anything at home until you sanitize. Walk in the door, sanitize, put stuff away, then wash your hands. Get yourself an air purifier. I’ve just bought one, which I’ll post in a separate article, and it is stupendously amazing because it feels like I’m breathing in American air — literally. My chest isn’t congested in the morning, no sniffles, no mucous buildup. It’s unbelievably AMAZING.

And those are your steps.

The Disruption of Industries Are Coming (longread) Part I

By Content Writer Jiun Ting Yong

We are living in the 21st century and it is the post-Internet and Information Age. Now we are living in an age of exponential growth where disruptions are the normal thing to happen. It is hard to predict how many disruptions can happen in the next 5 years! We are living in an age of uncertainty due to exponential growth and technological advancement that can bring us so much.  So prepare yourself for the next decade of disruption where your job can be eliminated  by automation and artificial intelligence. An Oxford University research showed that about 47% of jobs will disappear for the next 25 years!

According to my research on the internet where you can easily dig into a handful of information at your own discretion, the next decades will be tough times for mankind as many people will be put out of jobs as long as your job is a high one with operational cost and higher salary cost.  However, all these disruptions are nothing new as if you look back into the history of technology that goes back to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Industrial Revolutions; disruptions happened, especially in the 3rd Industrial Revolution since the desktop publishing that started the personal computing mania after the 1st Macintosh was put on the market in 1984! It had disrupted the traditional job market that was once dominated by men! Furthermore, since the internet boomed back in the 1990s, it allowed giant firms to outsource firms to the developing world like Apple Inc to China for assembling their iPhones and iPads; as well as IBM outsourced their IT work to India with just the clicks of a mouse!

Since the recession in 2008, Silicon Valley started a technological boom, it allowed startup companies to be very innovative like Airbnb and Uber, which allowed their services to be productised which then led them to start a revolution known as the sharing economy that has been a frenzy till now. This is the beginning of the age of exponential where it disrupted the hotel industry and the traditional taxi drivers by Airbnb and Uber.

Now these disruptions are only the beginning and it happened at a fast pace due to technological innovation  and advancement. Here is a list of industries that are about to face disruption sooner than you might think.

Travel websites such as Expedia and Kayak have eliminated the need for human travel agents to book travel packages.

Tax software such as mobile applications like Wave Business where it allows users to automate their tax filing, can eliminate tens of thousands of jobs for tax accountants.

Newspapers, magazines and books have seen their circulative numbers decline steadily and traditional bookstores already shrank in size, having been replaced by online media or digital publishing companies. Blogs and digital subscriptions like Amazon Prime and Zinio Magazines also allow customers to subscribe with an affordable price. Self – publishing like Wattpads, Google Playbooks and Amazon Kindle allow indie bloggers and writers to publish and sell their materials. In addition to that, computer software and the latest technology like machine learning and AI are writing news stories, especially local news and sporting event results.

Just within the last couple of years, Borders bookstore in America (or barnes and Noble) had gone out of business and shut their doors (not sure if it’s all).  Magazine subscriptions have plummeted significantly; meanwhile, websites like LasVegasSun.com are charging users to a monthly subscription to read news that’s actually given FREE. – Arsenio Buck

Language translation is becoming more and more accurate, with simple software which the same thing it goes for dictation and proof-reading. It has allowed the automation of translators and interpreters by installing software.

Financial professionals such as stock brokers, wealth planners and advisors will lose their business to online trading websites like eTrade and M4 Traders. Also, robo-advisors like Smartly and Robinhood. Robinhood is a free online brokerage service that was eating the market share of traditional human stockbrokers and wealth planners by automating tasks like selling and buying. Many banks are offering customers mobile apps or ATMs to make it more convenient for customers to make payments, bank transfers or deposit checks. Also, the boom of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology has allowed some financial technology to adopt and expand the technology which would disrupt the traditional banking industry because the world populations aren’t still unbanked and relying on a higher cost of money transfer. Moreover, the financial technology companies like Transferwise, which offered cheaper transfer fees, would disrupt the market share of banks.

Payment systems like Samsung Pay, Apple Pay, Payonner and PayPal — physical cash will become obsolete. Other forms of payment like credit and debit cards as well as traveller cheques, although these channels are old school, have started the disruption of traditional payment systems.

I had my content writer write a blog in terms of this because I do believe that very interesting times are lying ahead of us.

Stay tuned for more disruptions in the next blog!

 

Tim Ferris – Low-Information Diet

Climate change, deforestation, extreme temperatures, fossil fuel emissions, global warming, homelessness, famine, an epidemic, nuclear explosion, end of the world – is all of this going to make your day better, let alone help you achieve your goals?

I don’t even have to say it.

From this point forward, I’m going to propose that you develop an uncanny ability to be selectively ignorant. Ignorance may be bliss, but it is also practical. It is imperative that you learn to ignore or redirect all information and interruptions that are irrelevant, unimportant, or unactionable. Most are all three.
The first step is to develop and maintain a low-information diet. Just as modern man consumes both too many calories and calories of no nutritional value, information workers eat data both in excess and from the wrong sources. – Tim Ferris

This is the end.  From this day going forward, let’s try to go on a one-week media fast.  No magazines, newspapers, television, non music radio, twitter feeds regarding anything negative, websites (especially political ones).  If you want to know what’s going on in the world, simply ask someone during a 1 hour lunch break every now and then, “hey, anything important going on in the world?”

Tim Ferris, during the elections 5 years ago, emailed some of his closest friends pertaining to the election.  Although he was in Germany, he still wanted to vote and trusted the expertise of his closest affiliates instead of becoming inundated in an emotional war between parties.

You’re probably wondering, “what the heck can I do with all this extra time?” Well, it’s amazing knowing you have free’d yourself from sheer pessimism, but there are great alternatives like making speaking to your spouse, quality time with the kids, reading SELF-DEVELOPMENT BOOKS (no love stories gone wrong), to-do lists, projects, etc.  If you desperately have to, look at a business magazine if you’re tuned into the business aspect of the world.  If you see that there’s a lot of bickering, as there will be, and like a bad movie (Black Christmas circa 2007), put down the newspaper or walk out of the theater!
