It’s not a matter of if, but when. Banks regularly get hacked and spend untold billions of dollars and man-hours preventing hackers. Tech companies haven’t had to do this. Sure a virus or security issue pops up, but tech companies have never been in charge of consumers’ cards and money until now. It’s one thing to lose your email password, entirely another thing to not have money to buy food!
Both Apple and Google have millions of credit card numbers. Hackers could infiltrate where the cards are stored and steal the information that way. NFC hasn’t been hacked of yet (Google did have a wallet issue a few years back they quickly fixed) and the scary part is how the hackers will gain access through NFC. Drive-by, and “spoofing” seem to be the consesus on how to hack NFC, but I bet there is a vulnerability which we aren’t aware of yet! Definitely be interesting to see how sending credit card information through radio frequencies plays out.
I had my vitals taken in May 2018 before going whole-food plant-based. The results of a Whole-Food Plant-Based diet are ASTOUNDING!
Sunday October 21st, I completed the same 26.2 mile journey Pheidippides ran from Marathon to Athens to deliver the news of a military victory against the Persians at the Battle
of Marathon. I can relate how he dropped dead delivering the news. A marathon is no joke. The morning was absolutely perfect temperature without wind with the sunrise lighting up the mountains of Ojai, CA. I cruised through the first half without stopping, running a 9:18 minute mile pace. It felt fantastic. The pain started to kick in around mile 15. I started to walk a bit to catch a breather. Then, shooting lower back pain and the intense desire to
sit down. I felt I needed to lie down immediately after the back pain. After that, brutal pain in my left knee. I’ve never felt anyting like this before. I shuffled, walked, shuffled
until about mile 25. It was quite painful to walk the remainder of the race. On the last mile, I had a second wind and was able to run
to finish up the race. It took me 5 hours and 30 minutes to complete it. Here are a few takeaways:
It’s been a month since I switched to a whole food plant-based diet. It’s been very interesting. A few observations
