Ping World 2.0 Education
Given that online education is now a reality, we need to reduce the price of education.
Who is with me? Can you hear what I am saying? Why should a degree be so expensive in an online sense, when the reality is that education has become a copy and paste. And a copy of a degree course has a long online life? Like this post if you agree.
Everybody is talking about the new normal. The new normal being a world, of fear, of mask, of social distancing, of connecting online. However I think we should put effort and design a world 2.0.
- We can change the work week to be two days a week. Thus more people can be employed.
- Of course with less earnings we need to address the issue of land and rentals. Thus we reduce the profits of the landowners.
- In world 2.0 Debt like cigarettes must come with a warning label about debt traps.
- The people currently thinking about habitats and housing on mars must turn their attention to earth. Lets get the 3D printers working on cool low cost housing for the poor.
- What can you add to the list?
- Politics must no longer be about Presidents and Political parties. Ministers must be leaders of academics. I.E minister of infrastructure must be an engineer.
- Transparency must be a new norm.
- Please leave comments with ideas that can be added to the world 2.0
USA Heading to civil war?
It is the first of July and last night I had the strangest dream. USA was in a civil war and a new virus emerged from china. Crazy dream! THIS TOO WILL PASS!
Ping South Africa
Its 3am and my mind is telling me that South Africa has totally lost control of the covid. Just a correction to powers that be contact tracing does not mean you contact the people with the virus. Rather it means you trace where someone with the virus could of spread it .
Has he made a move on you yet? This is a headline I predict for the next term.
I predict that The Trump will win. If he loses he will be first president to rule to accept the results and will called elections rigged and fight results in court.
Ping Covid 19
While on lock down the main purpose of this blog as a platform for my life hacks, will now serve as a platform for 3 am musings.
Covid 19 can affect the brain. But it seems focus is on the lungs. Also doctors are looking for a one cap fits all but I think we need to focus on individual patients.
Medulla Oblongata could be affected first by virus. Inflammation in the lungs and inflammation in the brain.
Hash Tag Revolutions.
Can only be explained with an idea put forward by Keven Kelly . Hash tag movements are network movements, there is no center . The icon that represents is the network has a paradox that it is all center and no center. Old revolutions can be represent by the atom movements with a fixed center.
The hashtag moves are humans in swarm mode. A beehive moving us by swarm from our current hive to nest at world 2.0.
LOCK DOWN FEVER
What makes people riot during a pandemic? My only conclusion is that while people have been activated by social media to address the matter at hand, the reason the activation has triggered such a large response, is that lockdown has produced lockdown fever. People were already angry and needed a cause to rally behind, to vent their anger.
A ship arrives in Europe packed with refugees from Africa no social media response. Do African lives matter? The issue of race needs to addressed like yesterday, but the issue of the continued suffering of Africans in Africa needs to be address under this banner as well.
Day 2 of Lock down
Most people are under the impression that things will go back to normal after the lock down. What they fail to see that this is just the beginning and the lock down could last beyond the 21 days. I tried to have a family meeting to set up a routine for the lock down, but they feel that it will pass that it is okay to lock down watching mind numbing reality TV shows.
Day 2 and the stress is getting to me, there is so much we need in the house, but we have a fear of going to the shop as rumor has it that the police are arresting people on the street.
The global number of infections is sitting at 600000 that is just over half a million. Local news will not give an update of the number of cases in South Africa.
Total Cases SA 1192
Total Global Global 626000
We can show global unity by all having the same profile picture, me thinks?
