North Korean Defector Exposes Kim Jong Un & China

Got to watch. Patrick Bet-David and defector Yeon-mi Park on his channel Valuetainment. This was one of the most fascinating interviews I have heard about North Korea and the life they live. Life in this false utopic Communist state is something we in the west don't get to hear about. Very eye-opening. Thanks Patrick and …

Talking could transmit coronavirus

When someone exhales a big sneeze, they've found that viruses can travel up to 8 metres (or 26 feet). Talking can also transmit tiny molecules. Sounds scary? The only thing that can prevent tiny molecules from traveling through the air is a facemask, and an N95 is even more effective. Early research by scientists at …

A reason behind Nova Scotia killer’s rampage

This week, the massacre in Portapique, Nova Scotia, left a string of at least 22 dead along the killer's route on Highway 102 / Rte. 2. It will leave a negative impact on the surrounding community for a very long time. The motive is yet to be determined. A recent article in the Epoch Times …

A health official checks temperature of incoming passengers at Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok, Thailand on 9 March 2020 (AFP) When Asia was in the thick of Covid-19, to not wear a mask in public was seen as inconsiderate. It's like how we might see others who fail to sneeze into their own sleeve if we're not …

Marriage after Corona/Covid-19

Hi, I'm Kevin. I want to share a part of my life’s story in the blogosphere. It'll be a longer read than usual.  I grew up seeing my parents suffer together.  When I was a young kid in Vancouver, my father raised the family (my Mom, brother and me) by working two or three part-time …

When This is Over

Self-isolation has effected many people, if not everyone. I saw this online so I'm sharing this to encourage others out there. You might be feeling the same. "When this is over, may we never again take for granted: A handshake with a stranger, full shelves at the store, conversations with neighbors, a crowded theatre...  Friday …

Facing our fears and considering others

Vancouver man loading up at Costco profits 100k reselling Lysol sanitizer on Amazon. We worry about running short of food, toilet paper and basic human necessities.  It’s driven by fear and anxiety.  We worry, so we panic.  We panic, so we buy at insane prices. Hustlers know this. Therefore, there’s no need for panic-buying.  Just …

Love trumps our personal freedoms

I was thinking about who would most be against mandatory social distancing.  Human rights and social liberties advocates.  I don't think we'll be hearing much from them for the next few months. Don't get me wrong. I love my social freedoms and liberties. Freedom and liberties are something we value in the free world. Spring …

Pray for Italy

  The number of deaths due to covid-19 in Italy has now surpassed that of China. Hard to believe. This is one of the earliest nations where the Christian church had its origins, including the nations in the Asia Minor region (modern-day Turkey). May we pray for Italy and all the people who live in …

Toilet paper alternatives

This whole Coronavirus outbreak is just depressing. The more I listen to the news, the more depressed I get. You've heard stores have been running out of toilet paper. https://media.giphy.com/media/143yVxZmpEPwYM/source.gif If you're close to nature and know what plants to look for, you won't be in the lurch if you know what to look for. …

When enough-ness is never enough

I came across an article from a book. When is enough enough? In our life of busyness, we deeply want to be busy or at least have others think that we are busy. Somehow, it adds value to ourselves and the work we do--or at least we perceive that it does. The writer, David Zahl, …
