I haven’t done a Monday Musings links share news segment in a while but there is just so much going on I had to do one today.
Widespread Cyber Attack
First off, there was this worldwide cyber attack with ransomware yesterday that hit at least 100 countries. So many people were affected; hospitals could not even see patients and a lot of people’s computers were held hostage until they paid. See Ransomware: World Reels from Massive Cyberattack
I always recommend everyone protect your computers by backing up your documents and having some paper records. Prepare yourself from a cyber-attack which can be a disaster in itself. You never know when this type of thing can happen.
Ebola in the News Again
Just when we thought the ebola spread has finally died down, it’s in the news again. See At Least One Dead in New Ebola Outbreak in the Congo.
We had that ebola incident in Dallas a couple of years ago, and this is a reminder that it can happen anywhere. Here’s a post about what to do if Ebola were to show up in your city. Pandemics are definitely one of threats to prepare for.
Would You Eat Cooked Chicken from China?
With all the food safety scandals that have arisen from China, we now find out cooked chicken from China is coming to our groceries.
I have not forgotten the tainted pet food, unsafe baby formula and many more.
Find out where your meat and other food products come from, and keep up with food safety recalls at Foodsafety.gov.
That’s enough news to digest for now (pun intended). Please comment on any topics you find interesting below.
If you are interested in Off Grid Living, here is a Good Deal
Finally, I wanted to share a great deal from fellow blogger, Tammy Trayer. Tammy’s book, How to Embrace an Off-Grid Lifestyle is on sale for just $2.99 for the next week or so.
Please let me know if you like link sharing posts like this, and I will start doing them more regularly.
