Facebook displays ads based on what you chat on Whatsapp

Well it seems that facebook has been browsing the conversations between your friends and you on whatsapp and blasting you with adverts that are relevant to you.

I am a non techy person who do not handle nor know tech words like web hosting, general assembly, UX / UI. but recently I was exposed to adverts on facebook to use "vodien"

Vodien is an internet web hosting company, something that I only learnt recently from a whatsapp group chat, where many tech people were discussing what web host services to use. I was just listening in the chat and was not even participating.
Beside the whatsapp chat, I have never heard and used this word anywhere.

Within 24 hours, I saw some adverts for Vodien in facebook

And Yes, whatsapp is owned by Facebook, which paid USD $19 billion for it. I guess facebook has to start making money from it.

I have trollers as friends- Considering that they use facebook too, they were blasting all those words for mutual self-destruction.
I was wondering if this may just be a weird coincidence, but after a day of chatting about UX / UI experience, one of the rare times I actually participated in such a technical conversation, I got these on my facebook adverts.

Yup. Definitely not a coincidence.

Here is something for all to read... how all your info are leaked out...

Good luck protecting your privacy!

What is silver stacking?

What is silver stacking?
Silver Stacking (or Gold Stacking) is the habit of accumulating tangible assets, not intangible ones like paper certificates, in the forms of coins or bullions such as bars, rounds or ingots.
Generally bullions such as bar has less premium price, hence it is better value for money since you can also purchase a large bar for cost savings. If you can afford it, you can purchase a large bar monthly.

Coins are favoured usually because it can be smaller in weightage, and hence, easier to start stacking up. It is also preferred as when you wish to liquidate due to needs such as holidays or emergencies, you may not need to sell a large bullion but just a few coins.
Also, coins can carry numismatic value which can be appreciated by collectors.
silver stacking in singapore
there are lots of coins for collectors
Why would you want to stack silver?
Firstly, silver stacking is an excellent hedge against inflation, just like gold. It increases in value as inflation reduce how much your dollar can buy. Secondly, both silver and gold possess an intrinsic store of value, which is the main reason why people wants to invest it it. It is this store of value that silver and gold is used as money in the past as well as demanded by national government reserves all over the world.

Also, both gold and especially silver has huge and increasing demands from industrial manufacturers, from our cars to mobile phone to solar panels and generators.
One huge reason for silver stacking is as an investment to profit or hedge against financial crisis. The Great Recession from 2008 has led to huge amount of printing money by the USA government, the Euro bank, and even Japan and China government. There is fear of a global financial currency crisis and people’s currency will lose tremendous value. In a global dollar collapse, hyperinflation will rear its ugly head out. A flight to safety will take root and people with real gold and silver physical holdings will benefit. This is especially so as current paper gold and silver trading is a few hundred times OVER the physical assets silver available. In a big crisis, these paper values may not hold water.

Silver stackers invest weekly or monthly in some form of silvers, knowing that they will profit and sleep well in troubled times. Silver and gold has dropped and stay flat, this is a great opportunity to invest and stack up. Stackers know that the fundamental demand for silver and gold is real, because we using so much iPad, solar panels, smartphones and etc, and yet the mines’ production has been lagging.

Silver Stacking means you buy what you can afford to keep for a raining day. If you just cut down on some luxury spending or gourmet coffee and buy 10oz a month instead, you will have 600oz saved up in 5 years. If silver price move from $17 to just a mere $25, you see an almost 50% increase in your portfolio.

Why I tried 10 brands of Manuka honey for health?

I love Manuka honey! I eat a teaspoon in the morning and a teaspoon just before I sleep for health benefits such as to boost my immunity.

I am not alone in doing that.

Manuka honey has been used by the Maori community in New Zealand for centuries because of its incredible anti-bacterial and healing properties, and celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johannson are said to be big fans.

“It really adds an amazing glow and your skin is so soft afterwards. It pulls out the impurities—and it’s a nice foundation, especially if you are going to a big event where you want a great glow and you want to take that extra 15 minutes to do a treatment before you put your makeup on. It preps your skin in a really nice way” - Scarlett Johannson

I have not put honey on my face though.. LOL. I do use manuka honey based skincare though:- royal nectar face mask and lifting cream (can get it from www.qoo10.sg/shop/cherub)

Honey has been known for its special properties for thousands of years. And we have learnt that certain honeys from specific plants have a greater range of attributes than others, and the honey that comes from some varieties of the New Zealand Manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium) is one of these.

Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush.
Advocates say it treats wound infections and other conditions.

I usually buy manuka honey that has at least UMF 10+, to treat illness such as sore throats, stomach disorder such as stomach ulcer. Scientific studies have shown that Manuka Honey inhibits the bacteria growth!

If you have external wound, you can also apply a little manuka honey to the wound, and dress with a bandage. The manuka honey draws healing fluids and nutrition to affected area and creates a natural thin layer of moisture at the wound surface. Hence when you remove the dressing, you would not damage new regrowing tissues and allow your wound to heal faster.

For daily care, I take a spoonful of honey before meal, once or twice a day. Usually I take one spoonful before I sleep, and 1 spoonful in the morning before breakfast.

This is the most important as PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE, a key feature of manuka honey's anti-oxidant properties. It appears that manuka honey slow the oxidation process in the body, which is associated with many degenerative health conditions.
Manuka Honey may anti-oxidise and protect us from free radical unstable oxygen damage in our bodies.

However, not all honey is made equal.
For manuka honey, I only buy two brands from New Zealand.

These are some of the honey i tried before i concluded on the best brands.

I must have consumed more than 10 brands of honey before concluding the two best brands...
there are so many reviews to read, so many things to check, and the best way is to test it on myself.

One is Comvita, the only public listed honey company in the world. Comvita beekeepers are the experts in the honey crop, and the Comvita quality system filters out any low quality ingredients to ensure that only the best honey will make the Comvita Honey quality grade. No other company knows Manuka honey like Comvita.
The only drawback is that due to the high quality, Comvita honey retails for $129 in Singapore! It is certainly a very pricey honey. The good new is that you can get it from Qoo10 at much better rate (www.qoo10.sg/shop/cherub) Just look for Comvita Honey.
It is the best honey ever.

For a more mid-range price brand, the other brand I buy for regular consumption is Kare Manuka Honey. It is a great brand, direct from the farm and the beekeepers are strictly trained to ensure good quality honey. The activity levels of all Kare UMF® honeys are backed up by guarantee certificates and copies of the relevant laboratory testing certificates and UMFHA certificates.
Kare is one of those family farm brands that you can trust, I buy lots of them as gifts for my business partners and associates. =) You can find Kare at Qoo10 too (www.qoo10.sg/shop/cherub) Just look for Comvita Honey.
