I live in Southern California and it seems like everyone over here is over COVID. No one masks. Some people get boosters.
I feel like I’m an anomaly when it comes to COVID.
I realize that all the vaccines were developed quickly and anyone that takes them are being a guinea pig to a certain extent.
I also believe you don’t want to get COVID. You pretty much want to avoid it all costs.
It seems most people fall into either two camps:
1) Get vaccinated and get boosters and move on.
2) Don’t get vaccinated and move on.
But both camps doesn’t really wear mask. I mean, I see a few people wearing masks, but most people don’t around here.
In my opinion, masks are really the only option at this point. And not surgical masks. N95 masks.
I’ve taken one shot of J&J and thankfully, I don’t think I ever got COVID (I got a cold like sickness in March 2020 but it was really mild). I’m very on top of wearing my N95 mask though. And I’ve always been wearing N95 since early 2020.
I always wear my N95 in the grocery store, when I go inside a coffee shop. I never eat inside restaurants. Only outside. I don’t even go inside people’s homes without a mask on.
Three Alarming Things I Came Across
SARS2 is worse to the immune system than SARS 1
After mild sars2, plasmacytoid dendritic cells do not reconstitute, even after 7 months.
In SARS 1 they come back in 7 weeks

1/🧵 Our cell’s genes are rewired in MILD COVID 🧬
Stunning data in @Nature
White Cells (monocytes) switch gene expression from an established innate immune profile to a pro-clotting signature in COVID.

I forgot my water bottle today. I walked up to the nearest Starbucks to get some water and an Americano. I grabbed one of their Ethos branded waters that comes in a plastic bottle. I thought to myself, “They should try a little harder with this water thing they’re doing”. Continue readingShare This Content:

A while back I did a calculation to see how long it’d take to charge an electric car with solar panels. The answer I came up with was something like 5 – 7 days. Bummer.
But then I started thinking about this again, but from a different angle. What if cars just collected solar energy all day. Is it worth it?
Most cars around here just sit in the sun ALL DAY. Might as well be collecting energy right? Continue readingShare This Content:

I don’t day trade.
I’m too busy working and I have a financial planner.
But it occurred to me today that if you’re thinking about day trading stocks or crypto, you might want to try this test first.
“The Pretend Trader” Test
1. Pick some trades for the day.
2. Write down / record the date and the price of your trades. You’re not going to buy or sell anything. You’re just recording your pretend trades.
3. Do this every day you plan on trading.
4. After a month or three review your data. Did you come out ahead? Are you good at it? Are you good at it just because it’s a bull market? How do your trades compare to an index fund or S&P 500?
That’s all. Test yourself first. See if you have a knack for it before losing any real money.Share This Content:
I’m getting a few requests to train Shopify store owners on how to SEO their Shopify site. I’ve come up with a pretty lengthy training course, however, I just don’t know how long it will take to go through the entire thing.
If anyone wants to get a free training session with me, it will help me time the training and allow me to package it better.
Please connect with me using this Calendly form below (I’m estimating it will be 90 minutes, but you’ll help me figure out how long it will really be!):
