97% vs 3%
Society is divided up between two categories. There's the 97% and the 3%. The 97% are the average people. They work 9-5 jobs, focused too much on their education, don't think outside the box, and simply quit on themselves and their goals (if they had any significantly big ones). Yes, some people chose to be a part of that percentile and that's ok because it's their choice. They wanted it to be easy. But for those who complain about it have no right to. They may be thinking "I work 8 hours a day. I deserve better and should be living a better life." In reality they don't. They knew what they were getting themselves into and what the rest of their life would be like. They have made their choice a have given up on what could have been, for them, a life full of rewards and luxury. They decide to see the obvious instead of what's further ahead, and when they see the obvious, they hurt themselves more by looking at it through one perspective. These are the people who have simply said "I will do my part in society no matter the cost." Education plays a huge factor in your destiny. Some dream jobs do require an advanced education. When this is present, education is ok to take part in for it is needed to achieve a dream. For jobs that don't require education, you simply are spending $100,000 to people who will never know your name. The 3% of people in society are the people who put themselves away from society. They're the entrepreneurs in this world, the people loaded with confidence, they ignore what people say, etc. These people realized they have so much potential in their life and they take the opportunity even when it's not present. To be where they are they took the risks and sacrifices and understood what outcomes could come. Every penny they've ever made was put into what they believed in even if it was a dream or goal so big it scared them. Fear is not present in these people. They realized the only thing that could really stop them was fear therefore they learned to overcome it. No matter the criticism they received, negative comments they've been told, or even simply being told "you can't do it." 24 hours was not enough for them to get what they needed done so they would put in a full 24 hours of work. Now, depending on who they are and their stories, they could have had an easy start or challenging one. Some entrepreneurs were lucky enough to have a family member who already started the business or gave a startup of $1,000,000. But some start with nothing but a dollar and a vision. One feels much more rewarding than the other and causes them to have a bigger appreciation for what they have and have done. The 3% are always hungry no matter what they have. They will not stop until they have what they want. There are many quotes for these people but the quote posted best describes them. So now that you know a little about the two sides of society, which one will you choose? Are you happy with where you stand? Or do you want better? It's never too late to change or start. All it takes is confidence, hard work, and a drive strong enough that you constantly think "I can't quit now." Keep pushing towards what you want and stop at nothing. Have a good day guys, Kyler
Andy Murray headlines Great Britain Davis Cup finals team
Andy Murray surprised the tennis world on Sunday by winning the European Open in Antwerp. The Scotsman had been out of the limelight of tennis over the last year following hip surgery. Murray had struggled to regain form and fitness following the procedure and Sunday’s win at the European Open was his first victory in two years. Tennis fans can enjoy Murray’s return to action. The tennis star is expected to return to the courts at the Davis Cup finals in November. The tennis tournament in Madrid will feature Murray alongside captain Leon Smith, Dan Evans, Jamie Murray, and Neal Skupski. The tournament will see Murray compete in the Davis Cup for the first time since 2016. Great Britain last won the Davis Cup in 2015. Great Britain will start the Davis Cup finals against The Netherlands on 20 November and Kazakhstan on 21 November. Despite Murray’s return to winning tennis, injuries could see the tennis star struggle to win further events. Murray has been praised by tennis players and pundits following his win at the European Open. However, the positivity hasn’t carried over to everyone. Swiss surgeon Dr Hannes Rudiger has warned Murray that he faces “catastrophic consequences” if he continues to play tennis. Murray is just 32-years old and still has – barring injury – more years left to play. At least he does theoretically. Great Britain may have Murray in their Davis Cup finals team but they are 10th in odds according to major bookmakers. Spain, France, Croatia, and the United States lead the way in Davis Cup finals odds for the tournament in November. While Murray may not be able to lead Great Britain to success in Madrid, the tennis star is nearing his best once more. Perhaps next season he could be back in his best form. How good was Murray at the European Open? According to stats kept at the tournament in Antwerp, Murry was hitting the ball seven miles per hour faster on his backhand side. Pundits also raved about Murray’s serve and ball toss during the tournament. Both his backhand and ball toss were credited as reasons for his win over Stan Wawrinka. Murray isn’t the only major tennis star set to play at the Davis Cup finals. Novak Djokovic, Rafa Nadal, and Daniil Medvedev will all be competing for their respective countries. This year’s Davis Cup will be a history-making event played at Madrid’s La Caja Magica. Eighteen nations in all will compete for the finals trophy. According to leading sportsbooks, the longest shots to win the finals are the Netherlands, Kazakhstan, and Colombia. Each nation is at 100/1 odds to win the event. Both the Netherlands and Kazakhstan will open the tournament against Great Britain. The Davis cup finals will have a round-robin tournament format with teams playing in groups. The winner of each group along with the following two best teams will advance to the knockout stages. Ties will see two singles matches and one doubles rubber match. They will also feature the best of three tie-break sets.
코로나 19 사태를 예견한 영화 <감기> 재조명
영화 속 현실이 코앞으로? 정부가 오늘 코로나19 대응 위기경보를 최고 단계인 심각 단계로 격상했다. 심각 단계를 발령한 것은 2009년 신종인플루엔자 사태 이후 11년 만이다. 한편, 몇일새 확진자가 폭증하면서 국민들의 우려가 갈수록 높아지고 있는 가운데, ‘감염’을 소재로 만들어진 과거 영화들이 역주행 하고있다. 바이러스 확산 우려로 외출을 꺼리면서 영화관 대신 온라인 동영상 스트리밍 서비스로 집에서 시간을 보내는 시청자가 급격하게 늘고 있기 때문이다. 국내 영화에서는 한국 영화 최초로 바이러스의 감염 공포를 다룬 영화 <감기>가 재조명되고 있다. 영화는 평소 가볍게 받아들였던 감기라는 질병이 인류의 생존을 위협하는 치명적인 바이러스가 될 수도 있다는 점을 모티브로 제작됐다. 놀랍게도 현재 중국 우한에서 벌어지고 있는 상황들이 영화 속 대한민국의 현실과 맞닿은 점이 아주 인상적이다. 또한, 극한의 상황에 치달으며 식료품을 확보하기 위한 갈취 또는 폭동을 일으키는 인간의 이기심이 그려지면서 이번 코로나19 양상에서 드러난 현시점의 모습들을 연상시키고 있다. 영화 <감기>속 이야기를 따라가 보며 더 큰 재난사태에 미리 대비해 보는 건 어떨까. 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
