Most of the time I don’t talk about financials or the global economy.
You might have noticed that my blog is about general lifestyle topics, and these ones include everything I live, like, do, think, etc. But economics is kind of boring for some people, that is why I haven’t written about it. That is until now.
We are living interesting times, that’s for sure, when lots of things are changing around us and all over the world.
Today, for starters, I would like to address some monetary issues that concern the stock market and the Federal Reserve.
President Trump and Powell Fed Reserve
One question: If the economy is doing so well, why do the rates have to be cut?
In the meantime, let me quote President Trump:
“They must Cut Rates bigger and faster, and stop their ridiculous quantitative tightening NOW” Trump boomed, even though the Fed ended their “ridiculous quantitative tightening” LAST WEEK.
“Three more Central Banks cut rates.” Our problem is not China – We are stronger than ever, money is pouring into the U.S. while China is losing companies by the thousands to other countries, and their currency is under siege – Our problem is a Federal Reserve that is too…..
NOTE: I really like to talk about a lot of things, and have many activities and things I like in my life, apart from the love of my life: the science of medicine. And economy and financial affairs is a topic that interests me a lot and have found to like it very much.
Always confirm his credentials, and ask to see his/her medical or health certification, title, diploma. All of them signed by a reputable University, college, school.
Make sure the medical or health service provider has a good reputation through out the years of his/her career.
Avoid who ever promises you a “miracle cure”. There is no such thing anywhere in the world
If you are using the Internet for research, follow the guidelines for verifying information to make sure it is credible and reliable.
A professional world class medical or health provider always will answer all your questions and will let you know when he or she is not capable to help you with your illness because it is not his specialty or it not his expertise, then he will refer you to the proper medical doctor.
When I close my eyes I don’t feel happiness My heart is broken and I am in deep mess What is in my destiny, alas! I can’t even guess All I feel is torn, unclear and helplessness.
For I miss my dream, if I think me with you If I think me with him I feel sad for you So I am thinking that I should leave him too Only then I will feel peace or some traces of its hue.
Oh the soul! Take me out from this situation, oh! So clumsy Peace! Oh the soul! Show upon me too, your some pity Show me the right path, give me some moment of serenity For I still don’t know where my heart goes, where is my tranquility.
RECYCLE TIRES this summer, for fun, imagination, creativity. Maybe you just want to save the planet. No matter the reason, this is a great project for this summer 2019!
Tire recycling or rubber recycling is the process of recycling vehicles’ tires (or tyres) that are no longer suitable for use on vehicles due to wear or irreparable damage (such as punctures). These tires are among the largest and most problematic sources of waste, due to the large volume produced and their durability.
Violence and hate: brutal behaviour and intense aversion coming from extreme anger. That is the definition of two barbarousness acts and feelings happening in our world. And I don’t want any part of it.
I reject all lack of kindness in my life. Because that is no way to live.
My life is too precious to waste it having resentment, hate, being violent or unkind. That is why is imperative to be surrounded by people who embrace the same values I do.
I want: peace, loyalty, honesty, respect, compassion, kindness, sincerity. I want to give it all, I want to get it all. It goes both ways, remember that.
The more we watch violent TV shows, play bloody games where killing is the goal. The more we participate in digital conversations spreading hate and attacking others -that many times we don’t even know physically-, the more damage we cause to our brain and our general well being.
I choose happiness, I choose love. I say no to violence, I say no to hate.
My favorite hiking trails so far…but more to come!
Mist Trail in Yosemite California
Kalalau Hiking Path in Hawaii
National Scotland Paradise Tracks
Inca Trail in Perú. This one takes you to Machu Picchu
Queen Charlotte Track New Zealand
A healthy body is a happy body, and one of the best ways to stay healthy is to get plenty of exercise. Hiking is an economical way to increase your activity level, while offering a plethora of health benefits. Start slowly, especially if you are a bit out of shape. Invest in a sturdy pair of hiking boots and do your research first. Read more here
Fear mongering Al Gore forecast in 2009 “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.”
Climate change, global warmings, cooling ages, all of them are real and have been for millions of years.
Science cannot be manipulated nor politicized.
Nature is queen, nature wins, hands down, all the time. You lie about nature, you get exposed as a liar. So, it is better that who ever talks about science is in fact a scientist, not a “believer”, or a social media troll or a political sold out guy or gal, like Al Gore and many others who do not know scientific facts and only have a false millionaire agenda behind them.
But Al Gore is not alone in his ignorance. There are millions of “heads” who talk non-sense, and I laugh when I read their speculations and accuse real scientists of “spreading fake news” or “conspiracy theories”.
I have real news for you: the ones spreading the lie that “global warming” is killing the planet earth in the next decade, are fools and ignorants.
It is always better to be on the side of science. “Believers” who cannot prove what they say, corrupt the minds of many and have them dancing at their whim. I feel sorry for people who just follow and admire what some “influencers” of social media say, without investigating scientific facts. I feel sorry for them because the manipulated “scientific” lie hurts them in many ways: mentally, socially, individually and in their family circle.
Powerful political, actors and actresses, business men and women who want you to “believe” in a factoid without having any proof, have in fact an agenda, a billionaire agenda, and the only ones making money are those who promote those false ideas.
I wish to live a long long life to see those hypocrite false-greedy people to come down their pedestal and prove them wrong. Al Gore is the first one to go. There are more and many others to come.
Photoshopped image. An image to manipulate your feelings and your kindness. ⬇
Just like when you want to see a medical doctor, you want to make sure that you are consulting a true qualified graduate medical doctor, don’t you? You want to see his medical license and maybe you check him/her out on the Internet or even call the medical board of your state/country to corroborate that s/he is in fact a physician.
And that is how you should behave when you navigate in the internet, exactly the same way. You should always make sure that the person giving advice has the proper qualifications and professional training in the field you want advise or guideline.
There are thousands of people in social media and all over the Internet that want to make a quick buck, and they use their expertise in advertising to start a digital business promoting health products, physical therapy treatments, “health magazines” that have damaged a lot of people who are desperate for a “cure” and they haven’t found it in traditional medicine for different reasons:
Graduate medical doctors who are not well trained.
Lack of interest by the healthcare provider in the benefit of the patient.
Medical doctors who just care about billing the medical insurance for pure profit.
Physicians who never had an excellent qualified expertise attending patients as a whole.
Physicians who do not keep on studying the newest medical advances and do not keep up to date on medica scientific advances.
Even the most credible information found online is useless in the absence of expert physician evaluation and diagnosis. Tell your doctor you fully trust what you have read online. Email them the article that’s captured your interest, or print it out and bring it to your next appointment. A good doctor will walk you through it.
I was moved by her opinion and her pain of losing somebody in her family she really loved very much. So, as a medical doctor I do agree with several points she makes. She is of course referring to medical doctors in her country (US). I practice in Mexico and she actually praised some medical-biological scientists in Mexico City who, recently, discovered and developed a vaccine to cure the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)
So, I left this comment
And I got a lot of people liking my opinion, for which I am sincerely pleased and grateful.
But still, there are some comments directed to me that I find totally cruel, inappropriate and ignorant. Like this one:
Laura Ingalls Wilder, who wrote the book and Michael Landon brought it to live to the screen.
BORN ON 1865
Charles Dickens, 1812
IMPORTANT NOTE from Dr. Castro:
Please don’t assume that I am a Democrat or Republican just because I write or mention my admiration about certain people who are registered as such. I am neither. I hold no rigid political affiliation.
I admire the human being, no matter his/her political affiliation, religion or lack thereof.
I am a true freedom thinker who do not like labels. I don’t follow hypocrites. I admire what I think it’s admirable to me, and criticise what I sincerely think has to be denounced as a bad policy, error or a crime.
