Useful information. They recommend using your phone to pay and see it as a trade off against cash or cards (the trade off being that you expose your phone). I’ve read somewhere else that you could consider putting your phone into a see through plastic bag for safe handling. Seems like an idea but I haven’t tried it to see if there are any challenges with that
Highly recommended to read. It may sound unpopular but from a mathematical point of view a lot of this makes sense to me.
This for example:
A population-wide case fatality rate of 0.05% is lower than seasonal influenza. If that is the true rate, locking down the world with potentially tremendous social and financial consequences may be totally irrational. It’s like an elephant being attacked by a house cat. Frustrated and trying to avoid the cat, the elephant accidentally jumps off a cliff and dies.
It’s definitely something that has been on my mind. But then again I’m one of those rational over-thinkers...
I wonder how long it takes a trained doctor to look at the scan and make a diagnosis. Considering you’re likely in the presence of a professional as you get the scan done...
It wold be a different story if you could self scan
The power of positive and negative self talk is incredible and I’d argue most people don’t ever pick up on that. I’m aware of it and yet still fall into traps of negative self talk over and over. This then makes me think about what “free will” really means. And this is how I get lost in a spiral of “meaning of life” type thoughts.
Very interesting summary of existing rulings in the US justice system about the government’s right to access your phone.
One of they key earnings for me was that apparently a passcode is stronger than fingerprint or facial recognition from a legal perspective.
