No more masks?

As more people are taking the covid vaccines, the rates of people catching covid are going low we went from 10000 people dying a day to 50 people dying a day in Minnesota which is very good to hear. Just yesterday CDC came out with new guidelines on when to wear your mask now. The “CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said. “Over the past year, we have spent a lot of time telling Americans what you can’t do. Today, I am going to tell you some of the things you can do, if you are fully vaccinated.” The new rules are if you have been vaccinated with two of the shots then More than half of all adults in the United States, or around 140 million people, have received at least one dose of vaccine, and more than a third have received all three doses. that being said you do not need to wear a mask if you’ve been vaccinated two times. only if you have completed your doses you can take off your mask in an outdoor setting. but that rule does not go for unvaccinated people. the rule for unvaccainted people is Unvaccinated people, on the other hand, should wear masks at small outdoor events with some other unvaccinated people, according to the CDC. Unvaccinated people are defined as those who have not yet received both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or the one-shot Johnson & Johnson formula. They should also cover their faces while dining with friends from different households at outdoor restaurants. i think there doing this so people who are worried of taking it, can take it. Everyone truly understand that masks are not in favor meaning it gets annoying to wear it constantly everywhere but if you want to take off your mask, then take the vaccine. I really hope this influences people to take the vaccine so we can have a fourth of July that’s spent with our family as well as a outdoor, vacationing summer.

Why are humans becoming addicted to their phones?

Theres been a study that found that Americans matured 35 to 49 utilized social media 40 minutes more each week than those matured 18 to 34. Gen Xers were moreover more likely than millennial to drag their phones out at the supper table. The middle-­aged spend more time than millennial on each sort of device phone, computer, tablet, and whereas they don’t look at their phones whereas driving more than youthful individuals, they do it more than they should. So Why can’t middle-­aged ­people put down their phones? Since the midpoint of life is when your got to communicate crests. The middle-aged are the central hub in their atomic families, the center through which all informing voyages. Beyond any doubt, individuals beneath 30 may juggle perpetual Snaps and Instagram Stories with their companions. But the middle-aged are handling writings and Face Times from their young kids (hitting them up with questions almost school or connections) as well as emails, phone calls, and more writings from then. millennial also have the same issue. These days social media is becoming so huge and also time consuming theirs so many things that can pull you to your phone and watch a tiktok, of Instagram and snap chat story. the distracting is getting huge. the feeling of putting your phone away and getting things done for yourself is becoming hard for many you feel lost with the world when you do it. I know I do. Since so numerous individuals utilize their phones as devices of social interaction, they ended up acclimated to always checking them for that hit of dopamine that’s discharged when they interface with others on social media or a few other app. App software engineers are checking on that drive to keep you checking your phone. A few apps indeed withhold and discharge social fortifications, such as “likes” and “comments,” so we get them in an eccentric design. When we can’t anticipate the design, we check our phones more often. That cycle can lead to a tipping point: when your phone ceases to be something you appreciate and gets to be something you’re essentially compelled to utilize.

here are some helpful tips to make your phone addiction better: try to get some apps on your phone that helps you with some self control tips. why not use you phone in a healthy format? once you tame you self control, set aside one day a week to your self wear you shut your phone completely off try to have some “me time”.

Heres a graph that shows you how hard it is for millennials to put there phone down!

Fox news promotion on “fake election”

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/01/19/never-forget-fox-newss-promotion-big-lie/

Washington post put out an article that fox news did in November. fox news is a conservative political news show that is in favor of republican nominees. When Donald trump was president of the united states they were highly in favor of him. On November 11th when Donald trump lost the election to Joe Biden he accused of the election votes being rigged to Joe bidens favor and democrat’s are cheating. There was no way he would accept that he just did not have enough votes on his side. sean hannity fox news anchor stated It is a national disgrace how some states have handled this election,” . they were blaming states and and telling them to re count which states like Georgia did and Joe Biden did win in the recounts to. trumps team started to file lawsuits against this red states that turned into blue stated in the 2020 elections they stated “Stop letting people tell you that we don’t have the evidence, because we do. And this is only going to continue. This fraud will continue and America will be doomed for the next 20 years,” said Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on the Dec. 1 edition of “Hannity.”

We can’t have two standards. One party, you know, is lying. … And [Trump] was warning everybody from this summer on, early this summer about mail-in balloting and the fraud that the Democrats would carry out against the American people,” said Fox Business host Lou Dobbs on Dec. 16. Fox news has no proof that these elections were rigged. CIA also looked into them and there was no evidence at all but yes fox news brain washed people into believing this.

Are our kid becoming addicted to video games?

Are our kids spending way too much time on video games? Has this become the new normal? These days that all kids talk about and do. The World Health Organization declared that compulsively playing video games has become an all time high and is considered as a mental health disorder. Its proper name is called “gaming disorder”. Its becoming a new wave that kids are just getting hooked on. Kids who have become really addicted too it are spending all there free time and even times when there not free playing video games. That also get withdrawn afterwards if they lack on not playing the game for a little bit. But the real question is? Why are our children so addicted too this? “Game creators work hard to hook players to their games. They use predictive algorithms and principles of behavioral economics to make the gamer binge”. Its so scary too think about when you read this because there starting this at a young age. A kids mind is developing every day and as time goes by they can also be destructive because of this and see what the games are doing and think its okay in real life. 

I can relate too this a lot. I have a little brother. He’s eleven years old and addicted too video games. Any game out there he has it and plays it. It was already an issue before the pandemic but ever since the pandemic has started its been through constant playing the game can be very hard on us when we tell him too stop even disciplining kids now is an issue because he’s constantly wanting too do it
