When Everything is Going Your Way, You’re In The Wrong Lane

When Everything is Going Your Way, You’re In The Wrong Lane

Yesterday some one from Viet Nam was trying to access my gmail account.  Google alerted me several times that someone not from where I live was doing this.  I changed my password and it stopped, for now.  Why should you care?
I use that account for Video conferencing and online platforms.
Some VTC software companies may not have the user’s best interest in mind.  I just heard that a  well-known VTC company is currently being sued for allegedly selling user data to third parties, including a popular social media company. According to the lawsuit, a VTC company has provided the third-party with customer information, including details of the device used.
Like all online accounts, it’s important to use complex passwords coupled with two-factor authentication, even though it is a pain. The majority of online platforms offer two-factor authentication in the form of SMS text messages or even through the use of an Authenticator App. Additionally, it’s important to never use the same password for all your accounts.
I am not sure which company my friends were referring to but if you are using a FREE service to broadcast, stream or post, those companies may sell your information.  Nothing is really free my friends.  The threat is real.
Remember, when everything is coming your way, you are in the wrong lane.

Focus on the Win

Focus on the Win

There is a lot of things you could be thinking about now.  Most won’t help you.  My barber reminded me to focus on the win.  I have a conversation with him and my son this week on the podcast.

With everyone home, the old heads like me are considering buying a gaming system.  I asked my son for a run down on what the most popular ones are, the benefits to each, the cost, and what games cost.  And introducing Steve da Barber on:
Barbershop culture
Tips on Manhood now 
Chasing Money
Focus on the win
“Danger is real, fear is a choice.” – After Earth 

He is someone (Steve)  I have known for 15 years.  He’s a humble guy, a man of faith, but street hardened. He has been on the “inside,” but turned his life around.  By his own admission he is not a perfect guy but a man of his word.
He values integrity and thinks we should teach that to our young men.
He came to my attention from a Facebook post admonishing his peers to think better, do better, charge what they were worth and not settling for crumbs.  To not fight each other.  To not be afraid.

5 Things You Must Know About COVID 19

5 Things You Must Know About COVID 19

Podcast Episode 9

5,374 people have died so far from the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak as of March 13, 2020, 17:35 GMT.

There are currently 142,783 confirmed cases in 136 countries and territories. The fatality rate is still being assessed.

The Truth about the Coronavirus

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a family of viruses that cause sicknesses like the common cold, as well as more severe diseases, such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain – one that hasn’t previously been recognized in humans.
Coronaviruses cause diseases in mammals and birds. A zoonotic virus is one that is transmitted between animals and people. When a virus circulating in animal populations infects people, this is termed a “spillover event”.

Store Shelves have been emptied across the world.
Fights have broken out, carts piled high, and across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, most supermarkets imposed a cap to limit the number of toilet paper rolls a person can buy.
There is no shortage of videos capturing the mass hysteria that has swept up globally as shelves are cleared.
Hand sanitizers, cleaning solutions, canned goods, water bottles and pasta shelves have are also sold out.

When people are told something dangerous is coming, but all you need to do is wash your hands, the action doesn’t seem proportionate to the threat.

People naturally start to panic-buy when they think something is scarce, and photos on social media can easily fuel that panic.

The Truth About the Corona Virus

The Truth About the Corona Virus

There are a lot of dumb stuff out right now about the Coronavirus.  Here’s the quick view about what it is and how to keep yourself and your family healthy. If someone ask you what is the Coronavirus, here you go.

The Coronavirus is a mutation of a virus that has been around for years. Officially and by medical folks, it is known as Covid-19.

It is caused by a member of the Coronavirus family that has never been encountered before. Like other Coronaviruses, it has come from animals. Many of those initially infected either worked or frequently shopped in the Chinese city of Wuhan seafood wholesale market.

The virus can cause pneumonia. Those who have fallen ill are reported to suffer coughs, fever and breathing difficulties. In severe cases there can be organ failure. As this is viral pneumonia, antibiotics are of no use. The antiviral drugs we have against flu will not work. Recovery depends on the strength of the immune system. Many of those who have died were already in poor health. It appears to be hitting older people hardest, with few cases in children.

Viruses can also be spread through droplets landing on surfaces such as seats on buses or trains or desks in school. Much of the advice from experts is common sense, and not much different from what you would do to dodge the flu or any other respiratory virus.

 Tips 

  1.  Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze if you’re sick.
  2.  Clean and disinfect frequently used items like your keyboard, mouse, and phone with an anti-bacterial solution.
  3.  Stay home if you feel ill. 
  4.  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth since germs are often spread this way.
  5.  In public stay six feet from infected 
  6. Overall protect your eyes, skin, nose and mouth from coughers, sneezers and places where viruses can float onto raw foods, open air places 

 Keep Calm and Carry on
