gaming: Gaming Spotlight: Gamers vs COVID-19 Gamers vs COVID-19 is a community of virus-killing, society-supporting, game-loving heroes, founded to raise awareness about the importance of social distancing, good hygiene, and positivity in combating the spread of COVID-19. They were founded by a group of anonymous gamers and medical professionals, most of whom work in or adjacent to the esports industry. You can join them by signing the pledge at www.gamersvscovid19.com! Lots of parts of the internet thrive on misinformation—how does this initiative strive to combat that? Our resources are heavily researched, and we rely on citations from institutions such as the US FDA, US CDC, and the WHO. Each of these is referenced on our page, so you don’t need to take our word for it. We also have contributing medical professionals who help to fact check our distributions, but that doesn’t mean we’re giving medical advice.  Of course, when it comes to questions about viruses and disease, we always encourage anybody to go directly to a vetted source of information like those we’ve already mentioned. Besides gaming, what are other ways to practice social distancing? Social distancing is just the act of removing yourself from public spaces as often as possible. For many of us, that means replacing public activities with online gaming, but for you, it might mean reading, playing music, baking, painting, coding, or whatever you love to do from the comfort of your home. We started this movement in part to remind everybody that social distancing doesn’t mean social isolation: we’re all in this together, even when we’re apart. What are other ways we can contribute if we still have to go to work? You can still live by our pledge and help save the world if you go to work! Not everybody has the luxury of being able to totally isolate themselves. Some people have to go to jobs, while others may need to care for relatives or go out for other necessities. Social distancing is the active decision to restrict your time in public spaces to the minimum required amount, which is going to vary from person to person.  What’s important is that you spend every minute you can at home and that you stay home if you’ve felt sick or been in close contact with somebody who has a confirmed case of coronavirus. Even if you feel healthy, give others a gap of at least six feet whenever possible and don’t touch other people physically. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water frequently (especially when exiting or entering a public space), and never touch your face, eyes or mouth with unwashed hands. You can also help amplify the message by not meeting friends in public, sharing the pledge, and shifting in-person meetups to online activities instead. How do you build a community through gaming?  Contrary to old stereotypes, gamers are inherently social. Building a community around an important issue like COVID-19 is just a matter of reaching out and getting help from big amplifiers. Once this message is in front of people, we’ve found gamers eager to join and help. It’s been truly uplifting in a challenging time. The gaming space is supremely lucky to have so many amazing influencers who care deeply about their fans and broader communities. This is an international epidemic, and it’s going to take international cooperation and acts of courage to overcome it. We will do whatever it takes for as long as it takes, and every gamer from the biggest pro to the average joe is making an impact by consciously deciding to sign the pledge and change their lifestyles until COVID-19 is controlled. Take the pledge over on the website! In the first few hours, over 10,000 gamers signed up, including the likes of Castro1021, FallenNCS, Sjokz, Nickeh30, Voyboy, JKap415, HungryBox, Goldenboy, Ocelot, G2Pengu, Slasher, SirActionSlacks, Sheever, and too many other gamers to name. We’re excited about every person who comes on and decides this is a movement worth supporting. Social distancing only works if everyone chooses to make a sacrifice for the greater good. : gaming: Gaming Spotlight: Gamers vs COVID-19 Gamers vs COVID-19 is a community of virus-killing, society-supporting, game-loving heroes, founded to raise awareness about the importance of social distancing, good hygiene, and positivity in combating the spread of COVID-19.

Saw this review on Amazon today for fruit snacks via /r/funny https://ift.tt/2ReE2ZY: 13% 10:52 PM amazon prime Your children will do whatever it takes to get these- no matter the cost. My kids would give 5/5, but I disagree. After finally getting my 3 year old twins to bed one night, I went to take a shower and have a moment of peace. I was shaving my legs when suddenly a small arm popped through the shower curtain with a pack of these gummies- mind you both children were supposed to be asleep at this time. Naturally, this startled me which startled the child and in the chaos of it all the shower curtain was torn down. In case you weren't aware, shower curtains are critical. If you don't have one you can expect copious amounts of water to go everywhere. So there I am at my most vulnerable with a terrified, soaking wet child who is probably traumatized now, trying to put this shower curtain back in place. The whole time I'm thinking, "Christ this is how people die in the shower". I finally get it in place, open the gummies and send my child to change their clothes and go back to bed, only to find the next day, that I had forgotten to shave my other leg So today, out of spite mostly, I ate the last pack of these gummies and I've got to say I was underwhelmed. They're definitely not worth killing someone in the shower over. Saw this review on Amazon today for fruit snacks via /r/funny https://ift.tt/2ReE2ZY

the-occult-babe: geekinglikeaboss: weavemama: e-v-roslyn: weavemama: IT’S OFFICIAL. There will be a national school walkout on March 14th. This walkout demands action to finally be taken on gun violence. No more students deserve to be gunned down because lawmakers don’t wanna do anything about it. We are the generation that’s being affected the most by these weak gun laws, and WE are the ones who should be protesting about it. One student dying because of a gunman is one too many. SPREAD THE WORD, this applies to ALL students!! @weavemama What if our spring break falls on that day? How else can we pitch in? There’s another walkout date on April 20th! For the 18th anniversary of Columbine. OKAY!!! REALLY QUICK CAUSE YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS!!#1: YOUR RIGHTS DO NOT END ONCE YOU WALK INTO THE SCHOOL! You need to take a good long look at your rights and civil liberties because they will be called into question. I would strongly advise contact an ACLU representative and asking them about this so you are prepared to defend yourselves from a legal stand point because the shit is going to hit the fan and it’s going to hit it hard. #2: DO NOT RISE OR RESPOND TO THREATS! There will be threats. They will threaten to put you in detention, call your parents, expel you, get rid of your extra curricular activities, et cetera. Anything they can to control the situation  before the media gets involved or the school board. You must have solidarity within your participants, lock arms, form prayer circles, sit down and do not stand. Do whatever it takes to show a non-violent, passive approach to show that it is your intention to disrupt and draw attention to the problem without being physically confrontational.#3: SELECT A SPEAKER! Sooner or later, camera crews are going to show up. This is where messages get mixed and it becomes very easy to loose track of your goals. Draft a short speech, under 30 seconds, and select a speaker for your school who will address the media with the concerns of the student body and the demands you have before you will return to school and your education.#4: TAKE YOUR EDUCATION INTO YOUR OWN HANDS! This is not a chance to take advantage and get some time off school. The media WILL USE THIS as an excuse to discredit you. If you can, get teachers on board who will provide you with a curriculum that you can continue to work on from home. Do NOT GIVE UP YOUR EDUCATION! Refuse to participate in a government funded system of education which denies you basic safety.#5: If you can, GET YOUR TEACHERS INVOLVED! Is there a teacher your trust as a group? Is there a teacher who would offer their support, voice and guidance during this walk out? Get them involved. I know it’s not fair, but teen voices are underrated and overlooked. Having an adult head the operation or at the very least being willing to speak out IN YOUR FAVOR ON CAMERA will go a long way to adding legitimacy to your cause! Remember, their lives are in danger too, and more than once a teacher has put themselves between the shooter and their students. Ask them to be a part of this if you can.

Create your own rules to be successful in your business life but don’t forget to include this 3!👇 Rule 1: If it ain’t broke, then don't fix it. For the entrepreneur, the temptation to innovate and try new things is strong, and you should, but it’s also treacherous territory to forget that your customers buy from you for a reason. Rule 2: Always increase your confidence. The playing not-to-lose mindset comes from fear. Fear that you can’t keep up with the competition. Fear that future changes are going to crush your success. Confidence gives you the will to perform at the top of your ability, as opposed to the not-to-lose mindset of just playing it safe. So increase your confidence by taking time to celebrate your successes. Rule 3: Attack obstacles that get in your way. You can choose to see an obstacle as a chance to prove your abilities and grow, or you can sit back and ask, “Why does this always happen to me?” You can choose to say, “I’ll do whatever it takes and I know I’ll find a way,” or you can just ponders the “what ifs.” Starting today, remember to take time to reflect on what got you here. And use that to build your confidence so that you can attack and overcome any obstacle in your way. 🔥 - rules life success millionairementor: MAKE YOUR OWN RULES.
