Writing help

  • A free app: Grammarly. A lot of us are not native English speakers and I am finding it a helpful app. It will underline spelling and grammar mistakes. Just remember that is is not always right -especially if you use complex sentence structures. Here is the link

  • Remember The Most Dangerous Writing App. You set the time - 5 min - and start typing. Don’t stop!!! It will destroy what you wrote if you stop for more than 3 seconds - and backspace does not count as writing on the app. If you are prone to stop and think - this app forces you to keep going. You can make corrections after the 5 minutes are over.

  • A timer. Egg timer is a free tool you can use on your desktop to set a time. This is useful for our freewrites or if you want to work in blocks of time and then take a break. Here is the link

  • I found this app through @emwalker. Use it regularly and it will help you type faster and more accurately. [10 fast fingers](

I have a favor to ask. If you are on YouTube, can you please subscribe to my Sustainable Living Podcast channel. I am not asking you to watch, just to subscribe. I want to be able to do live Yoga classes and need more subscribers before I can access that function.

Sort Order:  

The richest people in the world are the old European nobility such as English, Swedish, and Dutch Queens, some Kings and prices of some Arabic countries, and some moguls from India and China. There are also international banker families such as Rothchilds, Rockefellers, Morgans, and several others that don't want to be known. At the same time, nowadays there is a new rich called "digitaries" ( I think this is the term). Those are the companies that offer many digital and information services such as Google, Facebook, etc. They don't need banks in monetary transactions and now there's a big fight is going on between those players for the world dominance in financial transactions.

China is rich. They own the most gold while the rest of the world keeps printing money.
Several others like Bill Gates, Soros and Ophrah Winfrey

China is not that rich yet. Its economy now is going through a difficult time and its government reserves are about three trillion dollars.

As far as Gold is concerned:

Russia 10.6%
South Africa 6.6%
The United States 6%
Indonesia 5.2%
Brazil 4.8%
Peru 4.6%
China 4%

People on the Forbes list are far from being the richest. The richest people are heading their assets and fluids via figureheads.

Oprah's worth is $2.6 B
Mark Zuckerberg's is $122B
Gates' worth is $139B
Jeff Bezos' worth is $205.4B
Elon Musk's worth is $290.3B

Rothchild's worth is about $400 B
Rockefellerworth is about $418 B

Thanks for the update. Rich or 'worth' is how you see it and where you influence people.

How much of the worth is extra printed money? I hope they all will live a long and happy life on their island of welfare.

Worth is only marginally connected with printed money.

Printed money is something that is imposed on the rest of the world by the US Federal Reserve (which is not a US company, but is owned by international bankers).

Worth is accounted for by owning land, shares in large corporations, commodities, manufacturing facilities, and agricultural products.

Gates, for example, is now the largest owner of the US farmland. What is he planning to do with it, only God knows. However, I heard that African women already refuse to use his free malaria vaccine, because after taking it they lose fertility.
