Covid 19 - A Pandemic 13/03/2020 View Details

COVID 19 – “A Pandemic,” WHO Claims.

The World Health Organization on Wednesday declared the rapidly spreading coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, acknowledging what has seemed clear for some time — the virus will likely spread to all countries on the globe.

Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the situation will worsen.

“We expect to see the number of cases, the number of deaths, and the number of affected countries climb even higher,” said Tedros, as the director-general is known.

As of Wednesday, 114 countries have reported that 118,000 have contracted Covid-19, the disease caused by the virus, known as SARS-CoV2. Nearly 4,300 people have died.

In the United States, where for weeks state and local laboratories could not test for the virus, just over 1,000 cases have been diagnosed and 29 people have died. But authorities here warn continuing limits on testing mean the full scale of spread in this country is not yet known

The virus causes mild respiratory infections in about 80% of those infected, though about half will have pneumonia. Another 15% develop severe illness, and 5% need critical care.

While China appears on the verge of stopping its outbreak — it reported only 24 cases on Tuesday — outbreaks are occurring and growing in a number of locations around the world including Italy, Iran, and the United States.

Magic Number? Do you know yours? View Details

We've all got one... A number.

A magic number. Your magic number is the one that would make you feel like you "made it." Like you don't have to worry about money anymore.

So... what's your number? Is it $100,000 a year? $500,000 a year?

Take a minute right now and see what number comes to mind. Ignore any thoughts about how impossible it might feel to make that much money. Just come up with a number that would make any money stress melt away, and write down the number or hold it in your mind.

Got it? Great. :-) Now, most people never do what you just did. They never get specific about their magic number. They only think in abstract terms, like, "I just want to be RICH!" That's like saying you want to go on vacation, without any destination in mind! If you don't get specific about where you want to go, you'll never go anywhere.

You'll stay right where you are, whether we're talking about taking a vacation or getting rich.

The Cashless Society Part 1 View Details

The World is Going Cashless.

 

Cashless: A cashless society describes an economic state whereby financial transactions are not conducted with money in the form of physical banknotes or coins, but rather through the transfer of digital information (usually an electronic representation of money) between the transacting parties (Wikipedia)

What is the benefit of cashless? What about the existing banknotes and coins?

Money, in some form, has been part of human history for at least the last 3,000 years. Before that time, it is assumed that a system of bartering was likely used.  Europeans were still using coins all the way up to the 16th century, helped along by acquisitions of precious metals from colonies to keep minting more and more cash. This paper money could be used to buy goods and operated much like currency today, but it was issued by banks and private institutions, not the government, which is now responsible for issuing currency in most countries. - www.investopedia.com

Why should we be going Cashless?

We are talking about something that valuable, something that everyone wants of even though they had enough to survive – Money. I believe its really different feeling when you carry a lot of money and when you don’t. Going cashless will make you feel safer; you have money on you but its not really money. You may just bring debit card, credit card on really just your phone yet you could just use these items to buy anything when you go out. How is that? ??

We will talk about the benefit of being cashless next time when we meet again!

Entering the World without Border. View Details

New technology has expanded around the globe. As we discussed cashless in this article, we will continue to learn about cashless technology and how it affected our daily lives.

Cashless is made to increase your safety and for an organization to have a smooth transaction whenever. Going around with cash in your hand will open a big hole of robbery and cash dropped out. That is how cashless is being introduced.

You might not realize how limited transaction you could do with only cash. We must be presentable in every transaction and could never use our money somewhere else other than where we stand from.

Nowadays, people are using credit/debit card for a littles transaction – be it on a supermarket, malls and grocery shop. The existence of e-wallet also increases the cashless transaction worldwide. E-commerce made easier for the online transaction as we can see all sort of store online such as groceries, clothes and home furniture that we can get. As everyone says, it is on tip of your finger.

In addition, banks have set a limited amount of online transfers, as each bank varies. That being said, in Malaysia, effective Jan 1, 2019, banks must report any cash transaction exceeding RM25,000
to National Bank of Malaysia in tightening the loopholes for money laundering and corruption.

This rule could be difficult for some people for some reason. Every country has certain transaction amount in time. Hence, the new technology has been introduced.

It is called Blockchain Technology. We will talk further about it in the next article. Stay tuned!

Blockchain Technology View Details

Blockchain technology simply means a decentralised trust less network that works by having a native asset, a decentralised ledger and some algorithms based around a game theory model that allows everyone on the network to reach consensus.

The blockchain is a decentralized ledger of all transactions across a peer-to-peer network. Using this technology, participants can confirm transactions without a need for a central clearing authority. Potential applications can include fund transfers, settling trades, voting and many other issues.

With Blockchain, people can write entries into a record of information and a community of users may control on how the information amended and updates. But, no one can control the information, such as Wikipedia.

In cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin is the famous invention of blockchain technology. A cryptocurrency is a medium of exchange, such as the US dollar, but is digital and uses encryption techniques to control the creation of monetary units and to verify the transfer of funds.

Why cryptocurrencies use blockchain?

Honestly, how we could trust a technology that can’t store our information perfectly? In Blockchain, it consists a lot of it to store an information. If one of the blocks got attacked, the others will still carry your information securely. Also, as we mentioned, no one could steal and store your information, its only between you and the technology itself. Thus, that is why majority of the cryptocurrency uses blockchain technology.

Coronavirus and China's Economy View Details

Suspended flights, cancelled tours, temporary restaurant closures, and millions of people in lockdown amid an extended nationwide holiday are just some of the results of a contagious new coronavirus.

Touted as China's Chicago, fast-growing Wuhan was expected to record a regional economic growth rate of up to 7.8 percent in 2020, according to local government estimates. This would make it a key pillar of growth in China's sluggish economy, which is expected to grow by just 6 percent, according to central government figures.

However, as shutters roll down in shops and public transportation comes to a standstill as the coronavirus spreads, one of China's brightest economic spots could end up dimming the prospects of a country already struggling with its weakest economic growth in 29 years.

China said last week that its finance ministry and National Health Commission have extended 60.33 billion yuan ($8.74bn) to help contain the virus.

International airlines ranging from Taiwan's China Airlines to Singapore's Scoot have cancelled flights to and from Wuhan. According to data from aviation data analytics firm Cirium, Wuhan receives 55 international flights each week from more than 20 countries.

 

How coronavirus could lead to digital exclusion in View Details

Following the rapid increase of coronavirus cases in the UK, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the virus can be transmitted to customers via banknotes and coins. This has prompted China to deep clean potentially infected cash to limit the spread of the virus.

Analysis has revealed that if current trajectories towards digitisation continue, 8.17 million vulnerable members of society would suffer due to their dependence on physical payment methods. This includes 5.2 million households, or 80% of elderly homes, that rely on cash.
