Eurovision: Did Polish Presenter Give Nazi Salute To Ukraine?!

Eurovision: Did Polish Presenter Give Nazi Salute To Ukraine?!

Did the Polish presenter Ida Nowakowska give a Nazi salute to Ukraine at Eurovision 2022?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Eurovision Presenter Gave Nazi Salute To Ukraine @ Eurovision!

People are sharing a video clip or screenshots that appears to show Polish presenter Ida Nowakowska giving a Nazi salute after announcing that Ukraine won 12 points from Poland!

The video clip is being shared on Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and Telegram with messages like this :

🇵🇱Poland’s representative at Eurovision made a Nazi gesture and shouted the Nazi salute at the end of his political speech

Ukraine wins Eurovision then they throw a Sig Heil Nazi salute on global television
Yes this really happened. I keep telling you all UKRAINE HAS A HUGE NAZI PROBLEM
Last year over 100,000 soccer (football) fans in Kiev did the Sig Heil and waved Nazi flags
Keep being brainwashed

Truth : Polish Presenter Did NOT Give Nazi Salute To Ukraine @ Eurovision!

The truth is – this is yet more FAKE NEWS created by Russia or pro-Russia netizens, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Invasion Of Poland Started World War 2

First, let me point out that it was the invasion of Poland by both Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union on 1 September 1939 that started World War 2.

Approximately 6 million Polish citizens – over 20% of its population – died during the occupation by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, including 3 million Jews.

So it would be ridiculous for a Polish presenter to give a Nazi salute.

If she really did so, you can be assured that it would have been extensively covered in the world’s media.

You won’t see anyone mention this because it never happened.

Fact #2 : Ida Nowakowska Was Giving A Victory Sign

The screenshots that appear to show Ida Nowakowska giving the Nazi Seig Heil salute were intentionally chosen to mislead you.

If you watch the video clip, you will see that she was really giving a victory sign, while saying, Slava Ukraini!

This is no different from what countless people do when celebrating a victory, like Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Conclusion – Nowakowska was giving a victory salute to Ukraine, not a Nazi salute.

Fact #3 : There Are Neo-Nazis All Over The World

The truth is – many countries have neo-Nazis. That includes Ukraine. However, what is untrue are the claims that Ukraine is full of Nazis. Very few people in Ukraine are Nazis, or neo-Nazis.

It is true that some Ukrainian football fans unfurled a Nazi flag and did the Sieg Heil salute in Kiev during Euro 2012. However, they were a small but highly-visible minority.

Ukraine has a neo-Nazi political party called Svoboda, but it only garnered 2.15% of the popular vote in the 2019 election results.

Even the neo-Nazi Azov battalion was small, even after it was absorbed into the Ukrainian National Guard and expanded into a regiment. Only 10% to 20% of its members identify themselves as Nazis.

Not even Russia, which suffered greatly in World War 2, is spared from neo-Nazi influence. On 12 April 2022, Artem Severiukhin – a 15-year old Russian karting champion gave a Nazi salute at the European Championship in Portugal.

Many pro-Russian and pro-CCP netizens are sharing the video and false claim on WhatsApp, Telegram, Twitter and Facebook.

Did Kalush Orchestra Give Nazi Salute At Eurovision 2022?!

Did the Ukrainian rap group Kalush Orchestra give a Nazi salute after winning Eurovision 2022?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Kalush Orchestra Gave Nazi Salute At Eurovision 2022!

People are sharing a video clip that purportedly shows Kalush Orchestra rapper Oleg Psiuk giving a Nazi salute after winning Eurovision 2022!

The video clip shows a 3-second segment of Kalush Orchestra founder Oleg Psiuk holding up his hand as he left the stage, with such comments :

#Eurovision winner, Kalush Orchestra, was caught on camera doing what appears to be the Nazi salute.

#ESC2022 #Eurovision2022

Apparently one of the members of the 🇺🇦 Music Group Kalush Orchestra did make a Nazi salute as they left the stage at the Eurovision 2022.

🇺🇦 #KalushOrchestra #Stefania

Truth : Kalush Orchestra Did NOT Give Nazi Salute At Eurovision 2022!

The truth is – this is yet more FAKE NEWS created by Russia or pro-Russia netizens, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Vast Majority Of Ukrainians Are Not Nazis

First, let me address the Russian disinformation campaign that attempts to paint Ukraine as a country of Nazis.

Ukraine was one of the countries in the Soviet Union that was invaded and conquered by Nazi Germany when they launched Operation Barbarossa.

It was estimated that about 5.2 million Ukrainian civilians lost their lives in World War 2, some of which were relatives of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Zelenskyy is also Jewish, which makes Russia’s claim even more preposterous – over a million Ukrainian Jews were murdered during the German occupation.

Yes, Ukraine has a neo-Nazi political party called Svoboda, but it only garnered 2.15% of the popular vote in the 2019 election results.

Even the neo-Nazi Azov battalion was small, even after it was absorbed into the Ukrainian National Guard and expanded into a regiment. Only 10% to 20% of its members identify themselves as Nazis.

Ultimately – the vast majority of Ukrainians are not Nazis, despite what Russia claims.

Fact #2 : Oleg Psiuk Was Waving, Not Giving Nazi Salute

While the camera angle appears to show Oleg Psiuk hold up his hand, he was not giving a Nazi salute.

A video from a different angle showed that his arm was bent at the elbow, and his fingers were splayed out.

Conclusion – Psiuk was waving to the crowd, not giving a Nazi salute.

Many pro-Russian and pro-CCP netizens are sharing the video and false claim on WhatsApp, Telegram, Twitter and Facebook.

Scam Alert : Nespresso 2022 Mother’s Day Contest!

Please watch out for the Nespresso 2022 Mother’s Day contest scam!

Find out why it is just a SCAM, and WARN your family and friends!

 

Scam Alert : Nespresso 2022 Mother’s Day Contest!

People are now sharing the Nespresso 2022 Mother’s Day Contest scam on WhatsApp :

Nespresso 2022 Mother’s Day Contest

5,000 free coffee machines for your Mother!

 

Nespresso 2022 Mother’s Day Contest : Why This Is A Scam!

Many of us are in dire straits during this COVID-19 pandemic, having lost jobs, income or even loved ones.

Unfortunately, scammers are counting on our desperation to prey on us, using the same survey scam they have been using for years :

Unfortunately, this Nespresso contest is yet another SCAM that you should NEVER participate in!

  1. After you click on the link, you are taken to a page that looks like a genuine Nespresso contest page.
  2. You will be asked to answer three very simple questions.
    The answers are irrelevant – no matter what you answer, you are always allowed to proceed to the next step.
  3. You are then asked to share the promotion with 30 WhatsApp contacts, or 5 WhatsApp groups.
  4. Next, you will be asked to complete one of these tasks to receive the “free” Nespresso coffee machine :
    a) install an app, which is really a malware to send you advertisements, or
    b) enter your credit card details
    Needless to say – proceeding with this step will open you up to great risk of monetary loss. DO NOT PROCEED!
  5. If you install their malware, you will start receiving promotions, some of which will ask you to send an SMS to receive expensive free gifts like laptops and smartphones.
    If you proceed to send the confirmation SMS messages, you will be subscribed and billed for international premium SMS services.

So never click on such contest links, even if they were sent to you by a trusted relative or friend.

They would have certainly been fooled by the scam, so please warn them too!

 

How To Spot Scams Like The Nespresso Survey Contest!

Now, let me show you how to spot these scams next time!

If you spot any of these warning signs, DO NOT PROCEED and DO NOT SHARE!

Warning Sign #1 : Bad Grammar

Most of these scammers do not have a good command of the English language, so if you spot bad grammar, stay away.

Proper contests or events sponsored by major brands like Nespresso will have at least one PR or marketing person who will vet the text before allowing it to be posted.

Read more : Watch Out For Nestle 2022 Anniversary Phishing Scam!

Warning Sign #2 : Offering You Free Money Or Gifts

Please do NOT be naive. No one is going to give you money or free gifts just to participate in a survey!

Petronas isn’t going to give you FREE money, just because it’s their anniversary.

They are a corporation whose business is to make money, not a charity to give you free money.

Warning Sign #3 : Not Using The Real Jaya Grocer Domain

A genuine Petronas campaign would use their real domain – www.petronas.com.

Or they would run it off the official Petronas page on Facebook – www.facebook.com/petronas/.

If you see nonsensical domains like 0yjjg61.cn, 1eaf1rnbeef.top, ldxqw.bar, etc. that’s a sign of a SCAM!

Warning Sign #4 : Asking You To Forward The Offer

No brand will insist that you must share the offer with 5 groups or 20 friends on WhatsApp.

Do not click to forward their offer to your family and friends. They will not appreciate being scammed with your help!

Warning Sign #5 : Asking You To Download + Register An App

If you click through and joined the fake survey scam, you will eventually be asked to download and register for an app.

This is VERY DANGEROUS. Never agree to download and register for any unknown app from a website.

Always download your apps from an official App Store like Google Play Store (for Android smartphones) and Apple App Store (for iPhones).

Please help us fight scams like this and SHARE this article out!

Hollywood Celebrities Start Vax-A-Thon To Fight Antivaxxers!

Hollywood celebrities are angry at antivaxxers, and have started a Vax-A-Thon to fight back!

 

Hollywood Celebrities To Antivaxxers : Piss Off!

Hollywood celebrities aren’t the brightest bulbs in America, but even they have finally gotten angry at antivaxxers for constantly claiming that they were being killed or injured by the vaccine.

No one was spared – Betty White, Louie Anderson, Bob Saget, Taylor Hawkins, and the great Bruce Willis!

Even worse – antivaxxers went after their own, claiming that stridently antivax Meat Loaf died from his booster dose!

That led antivax Jessica Biel to tearfully plead in a recent Rolling Stone interview :

What they did to Meat Loaf was wrong. So unfair! We did so much for them and they turned on us!

I’m all natural, 100% Pure Blood detoxed a thousand times! If I die, it’s not because of the vaccine!

Read more : Did Bruce Willis Get Aphasia From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

Hollywood Celebrities Start Vax-A-Thon To Fight Antivaxxers!

When antivaxxers started going after Bruce Willis, something broke. Not a dam. Maybe the rose-tinted glasses they have been wearing in the past two years.

So they got together for some mimosas and decided to do something about it – A Vax-A-Thon, with a twist.

For every $1000 donation to the FDA, you will get an autographed card of your favourite pharmaceutical executive. Pfizer’s Albert Bourla was reportedly 2:1 as popular as Moderna’s Stéphane Bancel. But Johnson & Johnson will give out cards signed by Ye, since they have no one famous on their team.

But here’s the kicker – if you can cough up a cool $1 million, you can get your favourite Hollywood celebrity to either receive or consume an ENTIRE COVID-19 vaccine vial of your choice!

Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds and beloved country songstress Dolly Parton were amongst the first celebrities to get a full vial “the traditional way” this morning, and say that they have never felt better in their lives!

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow declined to get the shot in her Pure Blood body, but will prepare and drink a delicious Moderna sorbet (recipe to be shared on Goop) on YouTube Live next week.

Jim Carrey reportedly wanted to reprise his 1997 “man kiss” of Alicia Silverstone with Paltrow on her YouTube Live stream, and slurp the Moderna sorbet from her mouth.

That Paltrow-Carrey livestream will certainly be interesting… if it happens! Brad Falchuk allegedly told Carrey to keep his super-big mouth out of his wife’s mouth.

Nicki Minaj, unfortunately, is not in the list of participating celebrities. Her spokesperson, however, issued a statement saying that she would be open to getting the full vial if Pfizer comes out with a version that gives her nails like Wolverine.

Oddball celebrity Steven Seagal asked to participate, but wished to gift the vial to his good friend, Vladimir Putin, who is forced to sit at really long tables because he was only vaccinated with Sputnik V. No word yet on whether his request was taken seriously, or laughed out of Tinseltown…

But if you are a Putin fan and want to keep him alive for another invasion of Georgia or the Baltic states, make sure you have $1 million handy!

Was Bruce Willis Forced To Get COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Was Bruce Willis forced to get his COVID-19 vaccine?

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Bruce Willis Was Forced To Get COVID-19 Vaccine!

People are sharing messages and articles claiming that Bruce Willis was forced to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

All of them revolve around this quote from an interview that Willis allegedly gave in 2021.

“Yes, I am vaccinated. But I must say, if I could be kind enough to say, I didn’t do it willingly”, Willis had said during an interview in 2021.

 

Truth : Bruce Willis Was NOT Forced To Get COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS about Bruce Willis and the COVID-19 vaccine, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No General Vaccine Mandate In The United States

This fake news is at least partially based on the false perception that there is a general vaccine mandate in the United States.

The Biden Administration ordered a vaccine mandate for selected groups in 2021 :

  • Healthcare workers : except those with medical / religious exemptions
  • Military personnel : except those with medical / religious exemptions
  • Non-citizen air travellers : except certain exceptions – under 18, airplane crews, diplomats, permanent residents, special exemptions, etc.
  • Federal employees : Suspended
  • Federal contractors : Suspended
  • Private sector employees : Withdrawn on 25 January 2022

Various state authorities have also enacted their own vaccine mandates, but only for selected sectors. For example :

  • California : state employees, healthcare workers, educational workers
  • New York : state employees and healthcare workers
  • Washington : state employees, healthcare workers, educational workers

Other than certain selected groups, no one else in the United States is required to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

Read more : Did US Supreme Court Just Cancel Universal Vaccination?!

Fact #2 : Bruce Willis Likely Fully-Vaccinated In Early 2021

Bruce Willis has never spoken about his COVID-19 vaccination status. However, it is highly likely that he was vaccinated against COVID-19 by early 2021.

While there is no general vaccine mandate in the United States, many film productions insist that all actors and crews must be fully-vaccinated to avoid expensive halts if an outbreak occurs on set.

Willis was extremely prolific in the last year or so, participating in 15 films since 2021. He would need to be fully-vaccinated to participate in most, if not all of them.

However, he would not have been “forced” to do it. He would have to willingly choose to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #3 : Interview Quote Belonged To Mike Tyson

The interview quote that claimed to show that Willis was forced to get vaccinated was WRONGLY ATTRIBUTED.

Willis never gave a 2021 interview in which he spoke about being forced to get his COVID-19 vaccine.

All those websites that used this quote did not identify who interviewed Willis, or provide a link to the interview. That’s because it never happened.

The quote was lifted – word for word – from Mike Tyson’s interview with USA TODAY on 6 October 2021.

Yes, I am vaccinated. But I must say, if I could be kind enough to say, I didn’t do it willingly.

As you can see in this clip of the USA Today interview, it was Mike Tyson who said them, not Bruce Willis.

Fact #4 : Bruce Willis’ Aphasia Had Nothing To Do With Vaccine

This new fake claim is being peddled as a cautionary tale of what happens when people are “forced” to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

They are indirectly suggesting that, if you are forced to get the COVID-19 vaccine, you may end up with aphasia like Bruce Willis.

The truth is – COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause aphasia. That is misinformation based on :

Also, Bruce Willis had been suffering from cognitive issues long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

The most common causes of aphasia are stroke, head injuries, brain tumours and progressive neurological conditions.

And globally, strokes alone are responsible for 5 million new cases of aphasia every year, before the COVID-19 pandemic occurred, and long before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Fact Check : Parishioners Go Down On Pastor For Holy Milk?

Did female parishioners go down on an evangelical pastor in Brazil, for his holy milk?

Find out what’s this holy milk business all about, and what the FACTS really are!

 

Parishioners Go Down On Pastor For Holy Milk?

This viral news has been circulating in several forms over the years. And it keeps getting shared as something new.

Many people just share the pictures, with some comments about the pastor offering his female parishioners his holy milk.

This is the “full version” that some are sharing, and is being posted on various “viral websites”.

Pastor Makes Females Give Oral In Church, Says To Get Holy Milk

Sao Paulo: An evangelical pastor has been arrested for raping his faithful, after convincing them that his reproductive organs contained “holy milk” which they need for holy healing.

Sobrino Valdeci Picanto, an evangelical pastor from Brazil, persuaded his followers that he practiced his strange beliefs because it was the way he preached the word, saying that his ‘milk’ was sacred.

And this pastor said his reproductives was blessed and that “the Lord had consecrated with divine milk of the Holy Spirit” and of course, had to go around evangelizing.

 

Pastor Valdeci’s Holy Milk : The Truth

The truth is this is just a fake story, created by a “satire” website, and reposted by many viral websites for the purpose of getting page views.

Here are the reasons why this is just another fake story…

Fact #1 : Sobrino Valdeci Picanto Does Not Exist

There is no Brazilian named Sobrino Valdeci Picanto as far as we can tell, much less an evangelical pastor called Sobrino Valdeci Picanto. For an evangelical priest, he seems to have an extremely focused and limited digital footprint.

There are over 4,300 references to “Sobrino Valdeci Picanto” in Google and every single one of them referred to the same fake story.

More importantly, none of them were from a credible source like O Globo, The Rio Times, or even tabloids like Super Notícia.

Fact #2 : That Lady Ate Grass, Not Holy Milk

The picture showing a lady about to puke her guts out, is actually a picture of a South African lady who just ate grass on the orders of her pastor.

In January 2014, Pastor Lesego Daniel ordered his congregation to get on their knees and eat grass to “be closer to God”.

God is at work and His people are testifying right now at the farm. TO GOD BE THE GLORY.”

After they ate the grass outside Rabboni Centre Ministries in Garankuwa (just north of Pretoria), he stomped on them until they vomited.

Fact #3 : The Lady In Screenshot Is A Porn Star

The “leaked video” does not exist, and the lady in the “screenshot” is actually a porn star called Tiffany Six.

The picture was a crop from a screenshot from one of her porn movies.

Fact #4 : It Was Created By Jesus Manero

This fake story was created by Victor Berriel, who posted it on the Brazilian satire blog, Jesus Manero on 11 January 2012.

The pastor in the original version was actually called “Valdecir Picanto Sobrinho“, not “Sobrino Valdeci Picanto”.

Here is a screenshot of the original Jesus Manero article, in Portuguese.

It’s Official – Bob Saget Died From Head Trauma, Not Vaccine!

It is official – Bob Saget died from blunt head trauma, and not his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Antivaxxers Claim Bob Saget Died From Vaccine Booster Dose!

Right after Bob Saget was reported to have died in his Orlando, Florida hotel room, antivaxxers immediately claimed that he died from his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

Bob Saget died from vaccine complications in his hotel room, on the first night of his fully vaccinated comedy tour.

He just received his COVID booster a few weeks ago.

Another victim of the jab.

To make those claims more credible, they often include a link to an article about Bob Saget’s death.

 

Bob Saget Died From Head Trauma, Not Vaccine!

I had earlier written a fact check article explaining why it was simply NOT POSSIBLE for Bob Saget to have died from the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

Well, it’s now official – Bob Saget died from a blunt head trauma, not his COVID-19 vaccine dose!

On 10 February 2022, his family issued a statement announcing that (with my emphasis in bold) :

The authorities have determined that Bob passed from head trauma. They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved.

As we continue to mourn together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world, and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office conducted an autopsy of his body a month ago, and issued this statement (my emphasis in bold) :

An autopsy was performed on Robert Lane Saget, a 65-year-old male. Mr. Saget was found unresponsive in his hotel room, on January 10, 2022. All testing and further studies have now been completed.

In consideration of the circumstances surrounding the death and after examination of the body, toxicology analysis, histology, and a respiratory pathogen panel, it is my opinion that the death of Mr. Saget, was the result of blunt head trauma. His injuries were most likely incurred from an unwitnessed fall. A toxicology analysis did not reveal any illicit drugs or toxins. The manner of death is accident.

Our condolences go out to Mr. Saget’s loved ones during this difficult time.

Now that Bob Saget’s autopsy report has been finalised and confirmed, there can be no doubt – he died from a blunt head trauma, not his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

In other words, he died after hitting the back of his head in an unwitnessed fall. That blunt head trauma could have caused significant brain bleeding that he may not have been aware of.

The autopsy report also revealed other details of the injury, and Bob Saget’s health at the time of death :

  • there was an abrasion on his scalp
  • there was a fracture at the base of his skull
  • there were fractures around his eye sockets
  • there were bleeding in the space between his brain and skull
  • there were bruises to his brain
  • he had Clonazepam (a tranquilliser taken for seizure and anxiety) as well as Trazodone (an anti-depressant) in his system.
  • he had an enlarged heart, which was 95% blocked on one side, and
  • he tested positive for COVID-19, but there was no inflammation in his respiratory system

Sadly, his death has been further abused by antivaxxers to drive the fear of COVID-19 vaccines. He now joins Betty White as yet another celebrity whose death was falsely and maliciously attributed to the booster dose.

Will these antivaxxers apologise? Correct themselves? Nope. They will just move on to the next celebrity death.

Now that you know the truth, please SHARE this out, and get VACCINATED against COVID-19!

How To Cancel Your Spotify Free / Premium Account!

Find out why you should cancel your Spotify Free or Spotify Premium account, and how to do it!

PS. Cancelling your free account isn’t as easy as you’d think! But cancel it, you must…

 

Why Cancel Your Spotify Free / Premium Account?

Spotify has long been the giant of music streaming services, but there will come a time when you want to cancel your Spotify Free or Spotify Premium account.

Most notably, Spotify is now being cancelled because they chose to allow Joe Rogan to continue spreading misinformation on their platform.

But even if you don’t care about Joe Rogan and fake news, Spotify has been slacking against the competition, namely Apple Music and Amazon  :

  • its Premium account still does not offer lossless quality
  • its Premium account still does not offer spatial audio
  • Spotify still does not support 16-bit CD-quality audio

Spotify has rested on their laurels for way too long, and you – the customer- have the option of cancelling your free or premium account to show your displeasure and hopefully wake them up from their slumber…

Even if you are using a free ad-supported Spotify account, you should still cancel it. Your cancellation matters, because Spotify relies on user base numbers to hype up their popularity to please shareholders and negotiate with artists, record labels, etc.

How To Cancel Your Spotify Premium Account?

Here is the official way to cancel your Spotify Premium account.

  1. Log into spotify.com/account.
  2. Under Your plan, click CHANGE PLAN.
  3. Scroll to Cancel Spotify and click CANCEL PREMIUM.

However, that may be outdated, so here is an example by Luke Filipowicz from iMore.

  1. Log into spotify.com/account.
  2. Go to Subscription.
  3. Tap on View Details.

  1. Under the Update Details button, click on the “cancel your subscription” option.

Your Premium account will stay active until your next billing date, then your account switches to free. Please go to the next section to completely remove your Spotify free account.

Note : Due to a tremendous number of people requesting to cancel their accounts, Spotify may tell you that you are not allowed to cancel at the moment.

If that happens, simply remove your credit card in your Spotify profile settings. This will prevent them from charging your credit card, and extending your Premium subscription.

 

How To Cancel Your Spotify Free Account?

Here is how you can cancel your Spotify Free account. It is important to do this, even if you had already cancelled your Premium account.

  1. Log into spotify.com/account.
  2. Download and fill this form.
  3. Submit the completed form to the Spotify Support team.

Remember – as long as you maintain your Spotify Free account, you still count in their statistics of subscribers and listeners.

Spotify Lost Over $4 Billion (So Far) Over Joe Rogan!

In less than a week, Spotify lost more than $4 billion in market value, after choosing to stick with Joe Rogan!

 

Spotify Backs Joe Rogan, Removes Neil Young

The whole Spotify-Joe Rogan debacle started on 25 January 2022, when Neil Young asked Spotify to remove his music, if they refuse to remove Joe Rogan’s podcasts.

I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform. They can have [Joe] Rogan or Young. Not both.

I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them. Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule.

Without even pretending to show some faux PR concern, Spotify backed their star act – Joe Rogan – and immediately  from their platform the next day.

Spotify Lost Over $4 Billion (So Far) Over Joe Rogan!

Spotify was probably hoping that people will ignore the “rants of an ageing musician” and stick with “misinformation from an ageing reality show host”. Unfortunately, the customers and shareholders appear to disagree.

Right after Spotify removed Neil Young’s music from their platform, the hashtags #DeleteSpotify and #CancelSpotify started trending on social media.

By close of the market on Friday, 28 January 2022, Spotify share price was down 12%, wiping out about $4 billion of its market value.

As of Monday, 31 January 2022, Spotify shares are up 4.4% from Friday’s bottom price of $165.72, but its share price is expected to continue sliding with news of more artists and subscribers leaving…

  • 27 January : Spotify shut its live customer service, after it was inundated with complaints and requests to cancel subscriptions.
  • 27 January : Mia Farrow mocked Spotify for choosing “to keep creepy, dangerous liar Joe Rogan over Neil Young“.
  • 27 January : WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus thanked Neil Young for “standing up against misinformation and inaccuracies around #COVID19 vaccination.
  • 28 January : Joni Mitchell asked Spotify to remove all of her music, in solidarity with Neil Young.
  • 28 January : Daryl Hannah criticised Spotify for choosing to “make $$$ off disinformation that harms folks“.
  • 28 January : Spotify started telling customers they cannot allow cancellations because their customer service system was overwhelmed with cancellation requests.
  • 28 January : Perry Farrell tweeted that he planned to follow Neil Young.
  • 29 January : James Blunt jokingly threatened to release new music on Spotify if they don’t remove Joe Rogan, while calling it #YouWereBeautiful
  • 29 January : Crazy Horse guitarist, Nils Lofgren, also asked Spotify to remove his music.
  • 29 January : Spotify podcaster Brené Brown announced that she “will not be releasing any podcasts until further notice“.

 

Should You Boycott Spotify For Supporting Joe Rogan?

In a follow-up post, Neil Young called Spotify the “home of life threatening COVID misinformation“, and a “damaging force” in the fight against lies and misinformation.

I agree with Neil, and point out that it took his gutsy move to bring this out into the open, and force Spotify’s hand – was it merely oversight, or an intentional choice?

Spotify made their choice, and it’s time for us to make ours.

Neil called on other artists and record companies to also remove their content, and stop supporting its “deadly misinformation about COVID“.

I sincerely hope that other artists and record companies will move off the SPOTIFY platform and stop supporting SPOTIFY’s deadly misinformation about COVID.

We should make the same choice too. Stop listening to Spotify. Cancel your subscription. Close your account.

Tell your friends about the day Spotify chose misinformation over the truth. Choose truth over lies.

Spotify Backs Anti-Vax Joe Rogan, Removes Neil Young!

It’s official – Spotify opted to back renown anti-vaxxer Joe Rogan, and remove Neil Young!

Here is what you need to know about Spotify’s decision in the Neil Young-Joe Rogan controversy!

 

Neil Young To Spotify : Remove Joe Rogan Or My Music!

Joe Rogan has long been an icon of the anti-vaccination movement, which got a big boost when Spotify paid him US$100 million for the exclusive rights to his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE).

He used that platform to give anti-vaxxers like Robert Malone exposure, and the opportunity to spread even more misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines.

This troubled Neil Young so much, he wrote an open letter to Frank Gironda (his manager) and Tom Corson (Co-Chairman and CEO of Warner Records), asking them to remove his music from Spotify :

I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform. They can have [Joe] Rogan or Young. Not both.

With an estimated 11 million listeners per episode, JRE, which is hosted exclusively on Spotify, is the world’s largest podcast and has tremendous influence.

Spotify has a responsibility to mitigate the spread of misinformation on its platform, though the company presently has no misinformation policy.

I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them. Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule.

 

Spotify Backs Anti-Vax Joe Rogan, Removes Neil Young!

Instead of addressing his concerns, Spotify responded by removing Neil Young’s music.

They did not issue an official press release, but confirmed to Hollywood Reporter on 26 January 2022 :

We want all the world’s music and audio content to be available to Spotify users. With that comes great responsibility in balancing both safety for listeners and freedom for creators.

We have detailed content policies in place and we’ve removed over 20,000 podcast episodes related to Covid since the start of the pandemic.

We regret Neil’s decision to remove his music from Spotify, but hope to welcome him back soon.

Interestingly, their spokesperson avoided mentioning Joe Rogan, or explain why they did not sanction or warn him about the anti-vaccination misinformation he had been spreading in his podcasts.

 

Should You Boycott Spotify For Supporting Antivax Joe Rogan?

In a follow-up post, Neil Young called Spotify the “home of life threatening COVID misinformation“, and a “damaging force” in the fight against lies and misinformation.

SPOTIFY has recently become a very damaging force via its public misinformation and lies about COVID.

I first learned of this problem by reading that 200 plus doctors had joined forces, taking on the dangerous life-threatening COVID falsehoods found in SPOTIFY programming.

Most of the listeners hearing the unfactual, misleading and false COVID information on SPOTIFY are 24 years old, impressionable and easy to swing to the wrong side of the truth.

These young people believe SPOTIFY would never present grossly unfactual information. They unfortunately are wrong. I knew I had to try to point that out.

I agree with Neil, and point out that it took his gutsy move to bring this out into the open, and force Spotify’s hand – was it merely an oversight, or an intentional choice?

Spotify made their choice, and it’s time for us to make ours.

Neil called on other artists and record companies to also remove their content, and stop supporting its “deadly misinformation about COVID“.

I sincerely hope that other artists and record companies will move off the SPOTIFY platform and stop supporting SPOTIFY’s deadly misinformation about COVID.

We should make the same choice too. Stop listening to Spotify. Cancel your subscription. Close your account.

Tell your friends about the day Spotify chose misinformation over the truth. Choose truth over lies.

Fact Check : Did Meat Loaf Die From Booster Dose?!

Did American rock singer and actor Meat Loaf die from his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose?

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Meat Loaf Died From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose!

Antivaxxers are claiming that American rock singer and actor Meat Loaf (born Marvin Lee Aday) died from his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose!

Rocker Meat Loaf dies aged 75… Another Booster Boy ???

So what was the date of Meatloaf’s booster shot? #Meatloaf

Bat Out Of Hell singer Meat Loaf dies aged 74 with wife by his side.

Recent #Booster by any chance?

#VaccineSideEffects #NoVaccineMandates

Meat Loaf, ‘Bat Out of Hell’ Singer and Prolific Actor, Dies at 74

Does anyone else feel too many people are dying all of a sudden? And maybe the vaccine & booster is why?

To make those claims more credible, they often include a link to an article about Meat Loaf’s death.

 

No Evidence Meat Loaf Died From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by antivaxxers to scare people from protecting themselves with the COVID-19 vaccines.

The truth is – like Betty White and Bob Saget, there is NO EVIDENCE that Meat Loaf died from the COVID-19 booster dose, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Evidence Meat Loaf Died From COVID-19 Vaccine

While antivaxxers are claiming that Meat Loaf died from the COVID-19 vaccine, they offer absolutely NO EVIDENCE for their claim.

The articles they shared as “evidence” do not mention that Meat Loaf died from the COVID-19 vaccine, only that he died with his wife and two daughters by his side on Thursday, 20 January 2022.

They only added those article links to mislead you into thinking that they are evidence that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

After all, most people don’t bother to click on the links to actually read the articles. That’s the same reason some people believe that Bob Saget and Betty White died from the COVID-19 booster dose

Read more : Did Bob Saget Die From COVID-19 Booster Dose?

Fact #2 : Meat Loaf Was Against Vaccines + Face Masks

Ironically, these antivaxxers are not aware that Meat Loaf was apparently anti-vaccination himself! Or maybe they just didn’t care…

He was outspoken about his disdain for COVID-19 vaccines, and shared Stand & Deliver – the anti-lockdown song by Van Morrison and Eric Clapton.

He even called a flight attendant a “Nazi” for requiring him to wear a mask on a flight, and said, “If I die, I did, but I’m not going to be controlled.

Meat Loaf refused to disclose whether he was vaccinated or not, like Aaron Rodgers (initially).

On 7 January 2022, his daughter Pearl Aday posted on Instagram that a number of her “friends and family” tested positive for COVID-19 but they were “doing ok“.

She also said, “Thank their respect for science that they’re all vaxxed, otherwise they’d be way worse.

It is unknown if she was referring to her own father, but based on his rhetoric, it seems highly improbable that he would be fully-vaccinated, with a booster dose on top of that.

Fact #3 : Meat Loaf Died From COVID-19

According to TMZ, Meat Loaf cancelled a business dinner for a show he was working on – I’d Do Anything For Love, because he became seriously ill with COVID-19. His condition quickly became critical, and he died on 20 January 2022.

His official cause of death has yet to be announced, but all sources point so far to death from COVID-19, not a vaccine booster dose.

Fact #4 : Meat Loaf Died Quickly From COVID-19

The speed of how his COVID-19 infection progressed and turned critical suggests that he was not even vaccinated.

While vaccinated people can die from COVID-19, their risk of dying from COVID-19 is greatly reduced by the COVID-19 vaccine, and the booster dose.

As this chart shows, the vast majority of those who died from COVID-19 in the United States were unvaccinated.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Booster Dose Proven Safe + Effective

The COVID-19 booster dose is nothing more than a third dose of existing COVID-19 vaccines – all of which have undergone not only massive clinical trials, but also post-approval monitoring.

They have been proven to be safe and effective time and time again, and the booster dose is no different.

If Meat Loaf actually received a booster dose, that would mean he was earlier fully-vaccinated with two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, and did not suffer any adverse effect.

Therefore, it is highly unlikely that he would suddenly suffer an adverse effect from a booster dose.

The facts currently show that Meat Loaf did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

Just look at how antivaxxers claimed that Betty White died from the booster dose, only for her death certificate to reveal that she died from a stroke!

Did they apologise? Correct themselves? Nope. They just moved on to the next celebrity death.

Please SHARE this fact check with your family and friends, and protect yourself and your family by vaccinating against COVID-19!

Why You Can No Longer Buy Large Fries At McDonald’s!

You can no longer order Large fries at McDonald’s in Malaysia!

Find out what’s going on, and why you will have to sacri-fries during the McDonald’s supply crisis!

 

Everyone Must Sacri-Fries During McDonald’s Supply Crisis!

On 24 January 2022, McDonald’s announced that they have stopped offering Large fries due to a supply shortage.

We are facing a fry-tening supply crunch on French Fries. But fret not.

While you can’t Go Large for the time being, you can still enjoy your favourite meals and fries in Medium size.

Time fries… It’ll be back before you know it.

You can still get your Large drinks, but French fries will only be available in Small and Medium sizes, until further notice.

It is unknown how well this measure will work, since it does not prevent fans from ordering two Medium portions, instead of their usual Large portion.

 

What’s Behind The MacDonald’s French Fries Supply Crisis?

The McDonald’s French fries supply crisis has been brewing for some time now. It comes on the back of a global supply chain disruption of everything from computer chips to yes, potatoes.

It is partly due to a drastic logistics crunch globally, and partly due to a sudden short supply of potatoes due to bad weather.

In December 2021, McDonald’s in Japan had already stopped offering French fries in Large and Medium sizes. Only small sizes were available.

Initially, the Japanese French fries crisis was supposed to last only a week. However, it was later extended for at least a month longer, even after several planes were used to fly extra potatoes into Japan.

Kenya was also affected, with KFC there forced to completely stop selling French fries (known there as chips) on 3 January 2022.

The supply shortage has affected even smaller F&B operations, like J.G. Melon in New York City, which had to stop serving their signature cottage fries.

The rumors are true. Due to a supply-chain issue, we are temporarily not serving our legendary cottage fries.

Ironically, US farmers had to destroy millions of potatoes last year, after a steep decline in demand due to COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.

It is unknown how long Malaysians will need to sacri-fries, or whether this supply shortage will spread to other countries.

Until this supply crisis is over, make sure you take the time to savour each bite of your French fries!

Power Out: TNB Shuts Hundreds Of Substations Due To Flood!

Power went out in many areas across Malaysia, after TNB shut hundreds of power substations due to flood waters!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Power Out: TNB Shuts Hundreds Of Substations Due To Flood!

On 19 December 2021, TNB announced that they shut down 333 power substations due to the dire flood situation, and the risk of further flash floods.

  • Pahang : 137 substations, 17251 homes affected
  • Selangor : 117 substations, 5062 homes affected
  • Kuala Lumpur : 45 substations, 4450 homes affected
  • Negeri Sembilan : 17 substations, 284 homes affected
  • Melaka : 10 substations, 634 homes affected
  • Kelantan : 7 substations, 470 homes affected

Some electricity supply through TNB mobile generators were provided to temporary evacuation centers (PPS) that were affected by the power disruption.

TNB had some advice for consumers in flooded areas :

  • Stay away from electricity poles, installations and cables that have been submerged in flood waters, even if they are insulated.
  • Be careful when using electrical appliances in flooded premises.
  • Avoid touching electrical appliances and switches with wet or damp hands.
  • Get a wiring contractor registered with the Energy Commission to inspect wiring in flooded premises, after waters recede

TNB also asked consumers to contact the TNB Careline at 15454 if TNB power installations or infrastructure had shifted or collapsed.

 

TNB Power Disruption : Current List Of Affected Areas

TNB has been gradually restoring power to areas where flood waters have receded. However, power may not be restored until TNB is certain that it is safe to reactivate the substation.

As of 5 PM, 20 December 2021, TNB power substations in these areas remained shut down :

Why Xiaomi’s ROIDMI Eve Plus Is So Awesome!

The Xiaomi ROIDMI Eve Plus robot vacuum is really, REALLY AWESOME!

Find out why every home should have a little ROIDMI Eve Plus running around!

 

Why Xiaomi’s ROIDMI Eve Plus Is So Awesome!

One of the hottest gadgets for homeowners is a robot vacuum, which can be incredibly useful or a real pain in the ass.

What most homeowners in the market for a robot vacuum don’t understand is that many models don’t clean well, and are a hassle to maintain.

That’s why Xiaomi’s ROIDMI Eve Plus robot vacuum is so awesome – it is not only a cleaning powerhouse, it does away with almost all of the maintenance hassle!

Self-Emptying System

One of the biggest hassle in maintaining a robot vacuum is the constant need to empty the dust box.

This limitation prevents ordinary robot vacuums from automatically and continuously cleaning your house for days on end.

This is not a problem for the ROIDMI Eve Plus. When it returns to its base station to recharge its battery, its dust box is automatically emptied into the base station!

This allows the Eve Plus to continuously recharge and empty its dust box, and clean your house for weeks on end!

The base station’s large 3L dust bag can hold enough dust for 60 days, before you need to clear it.

Self-Sanitising System

The ROIDMI Eve Plus not only comes with a HEPA filter – a common feature in robot vacuums, it boasts a pioneering Deodorizing Particle Generator in the base station.

The Deodorizing Particle Generator uses Active Oxygen technology to sterilise the collected dust, eliminating dust mites as well as microbes and mold like E. coli, Candida albicans and Staphylococcus aureus.

It can also eliminate toxic chemicals like formaldehyde, ammonia, benzene and TVOC, as well as remove the smell of cigarettes and perfume.

4th Generation Super-Sensing LDS Sensor

The ROIDMI Eve Plus comes with their 4th generation laser distance sensor, which allows for highly-precise scanning of its environment.

It is constantly scanning for obstacles, so it will quickly detect people or pets nearby and avoid them.

AI Smart Room Mapping

The ROIDMI Eve Plus can precisely map and later remember every room in your house, across multiple levels!

Its built-in AI mapping and path planning algorithms allow it to better and faster clean the rooms, and resume its cleaning duties after charging or emptying its dust box.

The room maps it generates also allows you to demarcate forbidden areas, or schedule more frequent cleaning for certain rooms.

Separate maps can be saved for each floor, and the settings are automatically matched and switched, when switching floors.

4+ Hours Of Vacuum + Mopping!

The ROIDMI Eve Plus has a powerful digital brushless vacuum with 2,700 Pa of suction power, with side brushes and a flexible inlet that adjusts to the floor condition.

And thanks to its large 5,200 mAh battery, it can keep on cleaning for over 4 hours (250 minutes) before it needs to return to the base station!

If you like squeaky clean floors, the Eve Plus has a mopping module and a 250 ml water tank, to give you just that.

It simulates hand-mopping with its 3-stage Y-route (not available in the US) or U-route mopping

Obstacle Avoidance

The ROIDMI Eve Plus will never get stuck under your bed, sofa or cabinets, because it can automatically sense their height.

It is also smart enough to detect low obstacles like door strips or cables (up to 2 cm in height) and crawl over them.

It can also sense and climb up ramps with slopes of up to 20°, which lesser robot vacuums will balk at.

 

Xiaomi ROIDMI Eve Plus : What’s Inside The Box?

The Xiaomi ROIDMI Eve Plus comes in two separate boxes – one for the robot vacuum cleaner, and the other for its base station.

In this video, we take a look at what’s inside both boxes!

Once unboxed, you should find these items :

  • ROIDMI Eve Plus robot vacuum cleaner + mop module
  • ROIDMI Eve Plus dust collector base station
  • User guide + warranty card
  • Disposable mop wipes + filters + dust bags
  • Power cord

For more information, you can visit the official ROIDMI Eve Plus website.

Bodyless : How To Get This VR Experience For FREE!

Bodyless – an award-winning surreal VR experience – is FREE for a Limited Time!

Find out how to get it FREE, and make sure you TELL your friends!

Bodyless

Bodyless is a surreal VR experience based on the director’s childhood memory during Taiwan’s martial law period in the 1970s, when human qualities were simplified and quantified with few characteristics recognized and measured by the ruling class.

The player becomes a deceased political prisoner’s ghost in his journey to find his way home.

Although the era has long gone, the emerging digital technologies follows suit. Governments started to use new technologies like digital surveillance, big data and AI as means to monitor and control people.

Powerful world leader uses tweets less than 140 characters to set the course for his country. Human beings are reduced to a few pixels on the screen and left to the military drone pilot to decide for their lives.

In Bodyless, the retrospective martial law governing and ultramodern digital technologies are fused into a dark oppression against folk’s living and beliefs. The audience experiences the journey through the eyes of an old man who was a political criminal under a government’s secret experiment.

After his death, he became a ghost and descended to the underworld. In Taiwanese folk belief, during “Ghost Month”, the hell gate will open for ghosts to visit their families. The old man’s ghost makes up his face and ascends to earth.

Through his eyes, the folk culture forms a rich spiritual world interwoven with nature. However, a mechanical force starts to deteriorate the spiritual world and eventually reduces human forms and memory into simple geometrical shapes that can be easily processed by the technologies.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Review : Great Bang For Your Buck!

The Galaxy Buds 2 is the latest AKG-tuned TWS earbuds with active noise cancellation from Samsung!

Find out just how good it really is, and why it offers such great bang for your buck!

 

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 : What’s In The Box?

First, let’s take a quick look at what’s inside the box.

Samsung kindly provided us with a better unboxing video than we could have done ourselves.

Inside, you will find the following items :

  • A pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds 2
  • Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 storage + charging case
  • Guide Start Guide
  • USB-A to USB-C charging cable
  • Extra ear tips (small and large)

 

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 : Key Features

The Galaxy Buds 2 is the latest AKG-tuned TWS earbuds from Samsung, and the lightest pair they ever made.

Despite its name, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 is not really a second-generation Buds, but a more affordable version of the ultra-premium Galaxy Buds Pro.

Comfort

These are really the lightest and smallest earbuds I ever tried. Each earbud weighs just 5 grams, and if you fit them right – you can hardly feel them.

They come with three sets of ear tips – small, medium and large, allowing you to fit them snugly.

But please note that the Galaxy Buds 2 are not IPX7 water-resistant like the Buds Pro. These earbuds are only IPX2 sweat-resistant, so you should avoid wearing them in the rain.

Active Noise Cancellation

The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 has two microphones to constantly monitor ambient noise, 98% of which Samsung says will be cancelled by its Active Noise Cancellation technology.

Its noise cancelling performance is good, delivering much clearer audio while driving (haven’t been flying lately!) and in noisier surroundings. However, don’t expect the same level of noise cancellation as premium over-ear ANC headphones like Sony WH-1000XM4 or Bose QuietComfort 45.

If you need to listen to someone speak, it has an Ambient mode (with 3 levels) that temporarily disable ANC and lets you listen to the outside world.

And when you take out one ear bud, the Buds 2 cleverly switches to Ambient mode so you don’t get disorientated, and switches back to ANC when you put the ear bud back on.

Audio Quality

The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 has decidedly better audio quality than the original Galaxy Buds, but I suspect audiophiles will say that it lacks the refinement and richness of more premium earbuds like the Buds Pro or Sony’s WF-1000MX4.

That would not be a fair comparison, and it doesn’t really matter unless you are comparing them side-by-side. The Buds 2 sounds great, and you can further adjust it to suit your proclivities using its equaliser setting.

Instead of worrying about how it compares against its far more expensive competitors, it’s best to learn how to get the best fit possible for the best sound and active noise cancelling.

Connectivity

The Galaxy Buds 2 connects wirelessly to your devices using Bluetooth 5.2, with support for AAC, SBC and Samsung’s proprietary Scalable codecs, but not aptX.

The earbuds support automatic switching between Samsung Galaxy devices, but does not offer true Bluetooth multipoint connectivity – switching from your phone to your computer, for example.

Battery Life

There is a downside of the reduced weight though – a battery life of 5 hours with ANC enabled, and up to 7.5 hours with ANC disabled.

That may seem a little short for some, but it’s really not so bad because the ear buds support quick charging – popping them into the charging case for 5 minutes gets you another hour of use.

The charging case, incidentally, has enough juice for three full charges. That’s 20 hours of battery life in your pocket.

 

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 : Our Verdict

The Galaxy Buds 2 is the cheapest and lightest pair of TWS earbuds from Samsung, and it boasts many of the best features from the far more expensive Galaxy Buds Pro.

Unless you have plenty of cash to splash, the decision is simple – just get the Galaxy Buds 2 and enjoy it!

Battery life is shorter and it’s not water-resistant, but the Buds 2 has a better fit and is both lighter in weight and on your wallet!

For those reasons, I think it deserves no less than our Reviewer’s Choice Award!

Frankly speaking, the Buds2 will kill a lot of budget TWS earbuds. Why settle for less when you can get an affordable pair of AKG-tuned ultra-light earbuds from Samsung?

 

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 : Where To Buy?

The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 is priced at RM499 / S$248 / US$149.99 / £139 / A$219.

Here are some online purchase options (prices accurate as of 28 October 2021) :

Maxis Fibre Warning : WiFi 6 Router NOT Exactly Free!

The free WiFi 6 router that Maxis is touting isn’t exactly FREE as claimed.

Here’s what I just found out, and what you should know about their “free” WiFi 6 router.

 

Maxis Fibre Broadband : What Free WiFi 6 Router?

On 18 February 2021, Maxis announced that they would make a new WiFi 6 router available for FREE to all new and existing Maxis Fibre Broadband customers!

The WiFi 6 router will be available for free from today, 18 February onwards for new customers who sign up for Maxis Fibre plans of 100Mbps and above. Existing Maxis Fibre customers will be contacted in phases for the router upgrade exercise. Maxis’ specialised Internet experts, Maxperts, will also provide free installation of the router to ensure that the WiFi is optimized for the best connectivity experience for the home.

When I wrote about it, I thought that was pretty generous of them, and a brilliant way to reduce churn and eat into Unifi’s business.

I quickly called up Maxis, eager to give it a try myself. But almost 7 months later, no one from the Maxis Fibre Broadband team called me up about this free WiFi 6 router upgrade.

Today, I found out that what Maxis announced in February was not exactly the truth. Here are the facts…

 

Maxis Fibre Warning : WiFi 6 Router NOT Exactly Free!

When Maxis first announced the availability of their free WiFi 6 router, they specifically stated that :

  • it would be made available for FREE for new customers who sign up for 100 Mbps or faster plans, and
  • existing customers would receive the upgrade in phases.

Neither are true… which is good news and bad news.

Based on my conversation with Amir from their Customer Service team, and Intan from their Fibre Broadband team on 17 September 2021, here are the facts :

  1. The WiFi 6 router is only available to new customers, and existing customers who are already (or almost) out-of-contract.

    This WiFi 6 router will not be made available to customers who are still under contract.

  2. Existing customers will not be upgraded in phases as claimed. Rather, you have to call up Maxis customer service to request for the upgrade.
  3. Existing customers MUST upgrade their existing plans to qualify for the WiFi 6 router upgrade.

    If you are on 30 Mbps, you must upgrade to 100 Mbps or higher
    If you are on 300 Mbps, you must upgrade to 500 Mbps or higher

    Existing customers MUST sign up for a 2-year contract, which introduces this penalty should you terminate the contract at any point in time :

    Early Termination Charge of RM500 or the remaining monthly subscription charges in the contract period, whichever is higher.

  4. For existing customers, the WiFi 6 router replaces your existing router, which will be taken back by Maxis.

    Since this occurs at the end of a contract, this implies that the routers are “leased” and do not belong to you even after you complete the contract.

None of the information I gleaned above were posted in the official Maxis WiFi 6 router page.

Their FAQ mentioned that the WiFi 6 router is only given free to “new installations for all plans of Maxis Fibre“, including their cheaper 30 Mbps plan.

There is NO MENTION in the Maxis website of any requirement to upgrade your plan, or sign up for a new 2-year contract, to receive this “free” WiFi 6 router upgrade.

The only reference to the Early Termination Charge is found in the Maxis Fibre Service Specific Terms & Conditions (SSTC) page, but that appears to refer to new installations.

 

Maxis Fibre WiFi 6 Router : Caveat Emptor!

As a long-time Maxis Mobile and Maxis Fibre customer, I’m very disappointed to see them quietly change the terms for what would have been a great upgrade for their loyal customers.

Forcing people to upgrade their plans when they don’t need the extra speed means you are essentially paying for the router.

That’s RM20 to RM80 extra per month, or between RM480 and RM1,920 for a 2-year contract!

Don’t be the fool who ends up paying RM80 extra per month for a “free” WiFi 6 router, unless it’s gold-plated!

I can understand if they wish to tack on a 2-year contract, but at least make it clear to customers in the website, including the early termination penalty!

There is one piece of good news though – even their cheapest 30 Mbps plan comes with the WiFi 6 router!

Pro Tip #1 : Call Maxis customer service and switch to the 30 Mbps plan, before asking for the WiFi 6 upgrade. This way, you don’t have to upgrade to a faster plan unnecessarily.

Pro Tip #2 : If you are currently on the 30 Mbps plan and don’t want to upgrade for the free router, call to CANCEL the service and migrate to Unifi or TIME (which always gives free upgrades!). Their Save team will call you up to try and salvage your business.

Swimming, Golf, Badminton Allowed For Fully-Vaccinated!

Fully-vaccinated people in Malaysia can now go swimming, play golf and badminton, amongst other things!

Here is what you need to know!

 

Swimming, Golf, Badminton Allowed For Fully-Vaccinated!

From 20 August 2021 onwards, fully-vaccinated people in Malaysia are given more sports and recreational privileges.

Who Qualifies For These Privileges?

Only those who are fully-vaccinated according to these requirements can participate in these sports and recreational privileges :

  • More than 14 days after receiving both doses of the Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Sinovac vaccine.
  • More than 28 days after receiving a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson or Cansino vaccine.

Children are currently not being vaccinated. So parents who are fully-vaccinated are ALLOWED to bring their children who are 17 years or younger to participate in these activities as well.

Sports + Recreational Privileges

Sports and recreational premises and facilities are ALLOWED to open, subject to these restrictions :

  • only open from 6 AM until 8 PM,
  • RESTRICTED to only fully-vaccinated individuals, and their children who are 17 years or younger,
  • 60% capacity limit, under supervision,
  • workforce limited to 60%, including management and operations staff, and
  • subject to any rules and restrictions stipulated by local authorities.

New sports and recreational activities that are now open to fully-vaccinated people include :

  • all individual sports or recreational activities that do not require physical touch, with physical distance of 2-3 metres
  • swimming,
  • equestrian sports,
  • shooting,
  • tennis / badminton (single),
  • golf,
  • motorsports and so on.

In addition, fully-vaccinated people are ALLOWED to dine-in at the club house restaurant or cafe.

Sports + Recreational Restrictions

There are a few restrictions though :

  • It is FORBIDDEN to use the changing room, or shower room, at these sports and recreational facilities.
  • You are RESTRICTED to the same district.

 

Should You Go Swimming Or Play Golf / Badminton?

Frankly speaking, this isn’t a good time to be going out for a swim, or to play golf or badminton, as community spread of COVID-19 is rampant with over 20K new cases reported every day!

However, if you really must, here are some steps to mitigate your risks :

  • if possible, condos should not allow strangers to share the pool at the same time.
  • if possible, book the entire swimming pool for your family so there are no strangers present at the same time
  • try not to bring your unvaccinated children for a swim, unless you can book the entire pool
  • try to play golf alone or with family members who are already living with you, instead of with friends
  • try to play golf without a caddy to help you
  • try to play tennis or badminton with a family member who is already living with you, rather than a friend
  • never use the shower room or changing room

Fact Check : Singer Joyce Leelyn Died From Pfizer Vaccine?

Did Malaysian singer Joyce Leelyn die from the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine?

Find out what is going viral on WhatsApp, and what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Singer Joyce Leelyn Died From Pfizer Vaccine!

A Filipino website is trying to go viral by sharing this message on WhatsApp :

She celebrated her 46th birthday on 17/07/2021. Her first Pfizer jab was on 27/07/2021. She wasn’t feeling well after her jab on the following night.

Admitted on 02/08/2021. PCR came back negative. Passed away on 03/08/2021.

Read the full story here. 👇🏻
https://viralarticlesph.xxxxx.xxx

 

Truth : Singer Joyce Leelyn Died From COVID-19

The viral message is FAKE NEWS, and is designed to drive traffic to the Filipino website. Here are the FACTS…

Fact #1 : Article Was Copied From Hype.my

The article about Joyce Leelyn appears to be copied from Hype.my, word for word.

It looks like ViralArticlesPH is nothing more than a copy-and-paste website like The Coverage.

Fact #2 : Joyce Leelyn Died From COVID-19

Joyce Leelyn died from COVID-19.

The viral message intentionally highlighted the part that her PCR test came back negative to convey the perception that she died from the Pfizer vaccine. That’s completely FALSE.

It’s even stated in their plagiarised article :

Initially, Leelyn was tested negative for Covid-19 but the doctor noticed that her lungs had already been affected. Her condition suddenly became critical the following day.

Unfortunately, when the family received the call again yesterday, their worst fear came to pass. Leelyn had sadly lost her battle and was tested positive for Covid-19.

Fact #3 : Pfizer Vaccine Does Not Cause Breathing Difficulties

Both the Filipino website and Hype.my chose to highlight that Joyce Leelyn passed away after having breathing difficulties.

Both of them knew that she died from COVID-19, so it seems that they intentionally highlighted breathing difficulties for “dramatic effect”.

To avoid confusion, the Pfizer vaccine does not cause breathing difficulties.

In fact, Joyce Leelyn only started experiencing breathing difficulties on 2 August 2021 – one week after her vaccination.

So the Pfizer vaccine has nothing to do with her breathing difficulties.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Take Time To Impart Protection

COVID-19 vaccines are basically self-defence classes for your immune system, teaching it how to identify and create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Just like how we need time to learn martial arts for self-defence in real life, our immune system needs time to learn from the COVID-19 vaccines.

It usually takes the immune system about two weeks after each dose to deliver maximum protection against COVID-19.

It appears that Joyce Leelyn was infected just days after her vaccination. Therefore, she had little to no protection from the vaccine.

It was also her first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, and if it was the Delta variant as suggested, it would require two doses to offer robust protection :

COVID-19
Variant
Pfizer
1 Dose 2 Doses
Alpha (UK) 50% 93%
Delta (India) 33% 88%

House Renovation Now Allowed In PPN Phase 1 Areas!

Houseowners will be glad to learn that house renovation is now permitted to continue in PPN Phase 1 areas!

Here is what you need to know!

 

Earlier : Construction Allowed, But Not Renovation In PPN Phase 1

On 16 July 2021, the government announced that G3 and G4 contractors (in addition to G1 and G2) would also be allowed to resume their construction works.

For those who are wondering – how are G1, G2, G3 and G4 contractors defined, it’s based on their CIDB (Construction Industry Development Board) licence.

The G rating of their CIDB licence is based on their tendering capacity – they cannot tender for work exceeding these amounts :

G1 : Up to RM 200,000

G2 : Up to RM 500,000

G3 : Up to RM 1 million

G4 : Up to RM 3 million

At that time, renovation projects were not explicitly allowed to continue. Only construction on new projects were allowed to proceed.

 

Now : House Renovation Allowed In PPN Phase 1 Areas!

On 3 August 2021, the government issued an updated PPN Phase 1 SOP.

This 3 August 2021 PPN Phase 1 SOP liberalised several more aspects of the construction business :

  1. Renovation of individual residential homes
  2. Land investigation work
  3. Professional or consultancy services for permitted construction work
  4. Supply chain services for permitted construction work

So it is officially confirmed that starting from 4 August 2021 onwards, you will be permitted to resume or start any renovation of your residential home.

But please note that this only applies to RESIDENTIAL buildings in Phase 1 areas, not commercial buildings.

Those in Phase 2 areas have earlier been permitted to renovate both residential and commercial buildings.

Interestingly, they maintained the limit on maintenance and repairs to only critical work. That is loosely-worded but I have to wonder – why bother when you are already allowing people to renovate their homes?

In the newly-updated Phase 2 SOP, the government actually removed that limitation, allowing all maintenance and repair work to proceed.

Computer, Mobile, Book + Stationery Shops Can Reopen!

MKN just announced that they are allowing computer, mobile, book and stationery shops to reopen across the country!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Computer, Mobile, Book + Stationery Shops Can Reopen!

On 15 July 2021, the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) announced that computer, mobile, book and stationery shops will be allowed to reopen.

This decision will apply across the country, to both Phase 1 and Phase 2 states, and apply from 16 July 2021 onwards.

They made this decision after taking into account feedback from students, parents as well as teachers, and to allow teachers and students to continue online learning (PdPR).

This news will be warmly welcomed by parents and teachers, who have been complaining about not being able to repair their computer or smartphone, or even purchase books and stationery.

They also allowed students to travel in and out of EMCO areas to take their exams, including professional exams, albeit with police permission.

MKN Now Allows Busking In Vaccination Centres (PPV)!

MKN amended their SOP for Phase 1 and Phase 2 states to allow busking in vaccination centres!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Busking : What Is It?

Busking is the act of performing in public places for gratuities – public donations.

This can be performed outdoors, or indoors, and is a popular form of public entertainment all over the world.

For example, here is Crash Metal – a busker showing off his juggling skills outside of ICC Sydney.

 

MKN Now Allows Busking In Vaccination Centres (PPV)!

Since the pandemic started, buskers have been blocked from performing, and this has caused a complete loss of livelihood for these street performers.

After all, they need to perform publicly to make a living – literally live hand-to-mouth from each performance.

In a surprise move, the MKN released updated SOPs for Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the COVID-19 Recovery Plan, in which the only change was to ALLOW indoor and outdoor busking at COVID-19 vaccination centres.

This will allow buskers the opportunity to perform publicly again, for a captive crowd (literally!)

If you see buskers at your vaccination centre, please show them some support! Just make sure you keep your distance and wear a face mask!

Again, please note that the new SOP only allows busking at vaccination centres – they are still not allowed in other public places.

Also, this only applies to Phase 1 and Phase 2 states, and DO NOT APPLY to EMCO areas.

MKN likely limited busking activities to vaccination centres where there are police and RELA volunteers who can control their physical distancing.

Even so, this is a great opportunity for buskers, and I wish them all the best. I really miss the Blues Hat band. These guys are AWESOME!

For our step-by-step guide, please see How To Register Children For Vaccine In MySejahtera!

 

Registering Children For COVID-19 Vaccine In Vaksin COVID Website

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to do that on the Vaksin COVID website.

  1. Go to the Vaksin COVID-19 website at www.vaksincovid.gov.my.
  2. Click on the green REGISTER NOW button.
    Or use these direct links – BM | English | Chinese | Tamil
  3. In the first part of the COVID-19 vaccine registration page, you will need to fill in :
    – Your child’s name
    – Your child’s age
    – Your child’s IC (MyKad) or Passport number
    – Phone number : this can be your child’s own number, or yours

  1. In the next part, you will be asked to fill in these details for your child :
    – State : where your child currently lives
    – Email (optional) : this will be an alternate means to contact you or your child
    – Address : where your child currently lives. This can be different from your address if your child is (for example) in a boarding school or living with a guardian
  2. You will also be asked three simple questions :
    – Is your child interested to take the COVID-19 vaccine :
    – Does your child have any comorbidities?
    – Is your child registered with the Department of Social Welfare Malaysia as a disabled person?

  1. If your child has comorbidities, you will be asked to select them from list :
    – Diabetes Mellitus
    – Hypertension
    – Heart Disease
    – Asthma
    – Cancer
    – Chronic Lung Disease
    – Kidney Disease
    – Liver Disease
    – Stroke
    – Immunocompromised
    – Obesity
    – Bleeding Tendency (INR ≥ 4)
    – History of Severe Allergic Reaction
    – Others : you will need to fill it in manually

Listing your child’s comorbidities will help the JKJAV team prioritise children at higher risk from COVID-19, and exclude those who cannot receive the vaccine.

  1. Once you are done, double check what you have entered and click or tap on the I’m not a robot checkbox.
  2. Then click > SUBMIT.

That’s it! You should see this Thank You message pop-up, confirming that you have successfully registered your child for the COVID-19 vaccination programme in Malaysia!

If you do not see this Thank You message, keep clicking on the Submit button every few minutes. You may need to redo the I’m not a robot test every now and then.

Now that you have just learned how to register your children for the COVID-19 vaccine programme in Malaysia, please SHARE this with your family and friends.

Encourage them to register their children for the COVID-19 vaccine programme in Malaysia too! Let’s get rid of COVID-19 together!

ViewSonic M2e Portable Projector with ToF Technology!

ViewSonic just introduced their M2e portable LED projector, with ToF (Time of Flight) technology!

Here is what you need to know about the new ViewSonic M2e Instant Smart 1080p portable LED protector!

 

ViewSonic M2e Portable Projector with ToF Technology!

The ViewSonic M2e portable projector is a portable LED projector, with a 1080p resolution and built-in Harman Kardon stereo speakers.

It also boasts new ToF (Time-of-Flight) technology, which allow for instant auto-focus in an ultralight, portable design!

Full HD Audio Visual Experience

The ViewSonic M2e uses their 2nd generation LED technology, with a resolution of 1080p, with 125% Rec. 709 colour gamut!

It is capable of projecting up to an 80-inch display at up to 2.1 metres away; and comes with dual speakers customised by Harman Kardon!

ToF Technology For Instant Auto-Focus!

ToF (Time-of-Flight) is a form of LIDAR technology, which uses an emitter to bounce light off the target area to accurately determine the distance up to 3 metres away.

This allows the ViewSonic M2e to accurate instantly correct the focus, to ensure sharp images on the target surface.

Built-In G Sensor

When a projector is moved, it will need to be refocused either manually using a focus ring, or automatically using a button.

Thanks to its built-in G sensor, the ViewSonic M2e will detect movement, and automatically trigger its ToF instant auto-focus capability.

Easy Setup

Setting up the M2e is very easy, with instant power on/off, instant auto-focus and auto keystone capabilities. It also has a stemless stand for custom projection angles.

Connecting your mobile device to the M2e is also easy – you can cast or mirror the content from your smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or a USB Type C cable.

Light + Portable

The ViewSonic M2e is very light at just 1 kg, and is small enough to fit into a large handbag, or a backpack.

This allows you to bring it on trips, and quickly set it up for instant entertainment wherever you go!

 

ViewSonic M2e : Price + Availability

The ViewSonic M2e portable LED projector is available with immediate effect, with a launch price of RM 2,699 (about US$655 / £463 / A$846 / S$867).
