A Happy life = Long life.

Monday is not supposed to be terrible as some people put it to be.a huge number of people who work office jobs are dissatisfied with their jobs, and after a long weekend Monday reminds them of another week doing what they hate for a boss who doesn’t appreciate them.studies have shown that Monday holds the highest number of suicides among people who work in jobs that don’t motivate them. Joseph Campbell the famous scholar of mythology gave the 12 steps to fulfilment in which one of the steps was to not base your decisions on financial gain.

How did we get here so fast: Fake news evolution.

News has evolved over the years from the times our grandparents used to get the news from small transistor radios with only one AM station or the newspaper which was bought by the few literate people in the village who were mostly chiefs or home guards. Those who couldn’t read were at the mercies of those who could as they delivered the news in ways that suited them. The few also that owned this radios never lacked visitors in their homesteads as elders could be seen arguing about a myriad of issues after a broadcast.
 Fast forward to the new millennium and things started changing TVs become cheaper and the AM transistor radio was relegated to the rural areas as people could now get their news from a variety of sources. It seemed to be a game changer as information spread faster and could reach many. However the evolution of the cheap smartphones was the real game changer many conventional news agencies had to adopt to social media with minute by minute news as people become hungrier for what devour. There no longer was time to verify sources and things become instant. 

The Donald trump campaign brought in a new era of news now referred to as fake news. If the guy got into the white house based on this I think it’s important to highlight it.i personally get all my international news from shows like Last week tonight by John Oliver, The daily show with Trevoah Noah among others because who has time to watch CNN.? All this while a teenager in Europe was publishing stories like: Trump gets endorsed by the pope” which gained traction and was virally shared on Facebook. Ignore the Russian hacking scandal and Vladimir Putin as a whole Donald trump become got into the White house because of fake news.

If a man who blocks Muslims from some nations from getting into the USA calls climate change a hoax and threatens to build a wall on the border with a nation whose immigrants built the US industries is now the most powerful man on earth with access to nuclear codes then be sure to clarify your source of news before making decisions. Just because something is virally shared doesn’t prove its authenticity.
