CoronaVirus(Covid-19) – Events tracker!

Posts on social media and even a scientific paper have suggested the coronavirus that causes COVID-19—seen here in orange, emerging from a cell—originated in a virology lab in Wuhan, China.

Nothing that none of us haven’t heard of, in the days gone past and if you are still not considering it serious, you should think again

Let us rewind a bit, into the beginning of this all

No, it did not begin in China(or it did – intent was unclear). There is a deeper belonging to all of this.
I personally, do not want to take a dig at things since I am no biological scientist, neither am I doctor or lab expert but what I do see, is a warfare of a kind that does ring a bell when you think of such things that can go at such a huge scale unnoticed at first but was there a malicious intent to all of this. It may well perhaps be or just a natural cause in its true existence.
Who knows the best of this story.. My theory has no basis or evidence but is a well thought after fact that this is a well triggered response to a global audience who wanted to reject the China as a trading partner for everything they have been doing in all forms of trades, economies and even more market influencing..

Now imagine, the reasoning of why I see a link it happened in the first place, who was blocked by US for HUAWEI and all Chinese trade for months? Allaying the fears that this was sent to China by US but this trickery is of now no use. What was, has hit and done the damage.

Reality is far and wide from the actual facts for some of these things which will never come to light while in the last month, scientists already converged to say that this might be a natural virus originating from the cause of handling of bird(bat) in the lab but then spread outside while retracting back that this is a definite cause of a natural flu, not bio-engineered. Again, the news are far from true or fake, the basis only is that this is too late to handle.

It is your own perception of how you want to see it, and take care of yourself or your own loved ones.

This is a modern warfare to kill economies, without ever being noticed for who, what and why!! China was the first country to battle it with the massive infrastructure spent on their medical systems, followed by Italy where it went to lots more precautionary span with pro-active checking, reporting and then this thing just become like uncontrolled rolling ball.
I am sure someone is laughing right now big time. This is a survival not just global emergency because there is no escape out of it in the easiest terms.

For someone more interested in the numbers, then here is the more graphical representative view of the impact

Canon Recalls EOS 650D

To all the people who use Canon EOS 650D model or the one that comes under the similar model range should go to their local canon website and register to get it fixed.  To authenticate these claims Canon is not open on much details but BBC has shared the following information.

===================================================================================

Canon recalls cameras over skin rash substance worry

The Canon EOS 650D The problem has only affected a particular batch of the Canon EOS 650D camera

Canon is recalling some of its digital cameras after it emerged a chemical reaction involving the device’s rubber grip could cause a skin rash.

The EOS 650D range contains a substance which, when exposed to humidity, reacts to produce a substance known as “zinc bis”.

Zinc bis turns the camera’s rubber grip white and in rare cases can cause irritation.

Camera owners are being offered a free repair.

Canon has warned people that contact with the affected cameras may cause an allergic reaction, such as a rash, on skin and as a precautionary measure users should wash their hands to prevent spreading the reaction to their eyes.

It is understood that 68,200 cameras suffered the manufacturing glitch, although when asked by the BBC Canon would not confirm this number.

“Canon has identified a quality issue on a limited number of EOS 650D units, which causes the exterior rubber grip used on the camera body to turn white after a period of time,” the company said in a statement.

“This issue does not affect image quality or camera performance in any way, however we are currently in the process of updating affected stock models before sale.

“Any customers who may be affected are advised to visit Canon’s customer support site, where further instructions regarding our repair procedure are provided.”

Batch checkerThe company said the faulty batch in question contained a “higher than usual” level of a substance used to “vulcanize” the rubber grip, a process which makes it harder and stronger.

We offer our sincere apologies to customers who have been inconvenienced by this”

Canon statement

In certain conditions – such as when gripped by hot hands – the resulting chemical reaction produces zinc bis (dimethyldithiocarbamate).

Canon would not confirm whether any customers had reported being adversely affected by the flaw.

The EOS 650D – also known as Rebel T4i or Kiss X6i in other markets – was the first Canon digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera to feature a touchscreen LCD screen.

The recall covers some models that were mostly manufactured in June this year.

The company has provided a simple tool which allows users to enter their camera’s serial number and see if their device is in the affected batch.

“We offer our sincere apologies to customers who have been inconvenienced by this,” the company added.

“Canon strives to provide the highest quality products to our customers, and we spare no effort in our quality management to make sure our customers use our products with confidence.”

Winning Formula

Whine Whine Whine till you know you have broken the EUREKA EUREKA code … or simply BLA BLA BLA there is only one way to go – Win it. Anything other than a winner is always a loser whether you compare the technologies or races. There is no podium in real life and no trophies that can keep you going but just self inspiration of your own desires.  Sometimes you know have got the winner but simply is not the winner and reason stays simple you never touched the right masses at the right time with right kind of marketing for your win.

Such a similar instance that invoked me to share this was simply a picture that flooded on my social media site. It is interesting that what winners do differently than the losers is publicly lick the world in the sexy package in the right economy.  All suspense over now – its about a never ending story of Microsoft vs Apple. I generally did like Apple until recently that I bought the new iPad3 that kind of took me away from other things of my normal life. Some call it technology and some who want to live real life call it annoyance.

Now, this is what that we are talking about – Winning Formula.

Feel free to share it whether you are Apploid or Microsoftoid 😀
Worth a smile for the fact US and now the rest of the world is ruled by Apple gadgets 😉
I love watching these games whether the egg came first or the chicken – in the end I still get my omelet
