South Korea’s Richest People (as of April 2020)

Top 10 Richest Koreans by Net Worth

Note: The recent stock market volatility has stripped some of the riches of these top10:

At top, the “South Korean business magnate and the chairman of Samsung Group” Lee, Kun-hee is still #1. In Korean, his name is spelled “이건희” and in “Hanja,” he’s 李健熙.

He’s worth a cool $15.4 billion dollars (as of 3/26/20)

#2 Seo Jung-jin – $6.9 billion

Not to get confused with the soccer player, this tycoon is CEO of Celltrion, a biopharmaceutical company which develops drugs to treat cancer, influenza and rheumatoid arthritis, among others. Probably a good time to be in his industry, eh?

#3 is Kim Jung-ju, founder of South Korean online-gaming company Nexon; he is chairman of its holding company NXC. His current net worth is $6.5 bill.

What do you call someone who doesn’t follow the rules?

non-conformist, rebel and a deviant are what are currently defined as “someone who doesn’t follow the rules.”  (at least according to google’s search results)

Historically, there have been many trendsetters and pioneers that were originally disdained for “sticking out” or disobeying what society or even some small group they may have belonged to.  Today, more than ever, there will be and have been some amazing people who have been brave and literally failed to conform to what society or more conservative types may have deemed appropriate.  Nevertheless, here are some of the nouns that people associate with people who “fail” to follow the rules:

James Dean, the Actor as a Young Man: 'Rebel Without a Cause ...

    • nonconformist – this entry popped up #1 when I searched “person who doesn’t follow the rules”  Vocabulary.com secured the featured snippet space with: “nonconformist. A nonconformist is someone who doesn’t conform to other people’s ideas of how things should be.”

Corona 2020’s Economic Devastation to the World Economy

March 15, 2020

A week ago, Mark Canlis’s restaurant in Seattle was offering a $135 tasting menu to a bustling dining room every night. Eileen Hornor’s inn on the Maine coast was booking rooms for the busy spring graduation season. And Kalena Masching, a real estate agent in California, was fielding multiple offers on a $1.2 million home.

Then the coronavirus outbreak changed everything.

64.7k+ Dead from Corona; the next virus may reset history

Bill Gates predicted today’s unfortunate events 5 years ago

TLDR:

  • The Coronavirus has surpassed over 1.2 MILLION+ cases & 64.7k+ deaths globally
  • There are estimates that 500,000 will die here in the U.S. alone and also in the UK ;  some are even estimating as many as HUNDREDS of Millions to die
  • Corona has landed stateside and it WILL cripple the US (both financially & medically)
  • This is a stark warning about what is to come
  • Like Parasite’s allegorical messaging, “Corona” is not just a “health thing, ” but a larger message about how we should NOT ignore the “signals” & be smart like Bill Gates told us 5 years ago along with MANY others
The world is on (corona) fire

In JUST 95+ days we already have:

1,203,099 cases & 64,774 deaths globally confirmed***

Solid Advice from a Doctor re: Coronavirus – if you contract it

***Before you read, I’m not a doctor & I’m just forwarding from a friend who I trust***

Note: the following is from a doctor he knows.  I’m simply sharing in case it helps anyone who has a situation that “might” need some of this detail to help.  The crisis we have is unprecedented.  Information can be inaccurate.  Please take any and all of this with a grain of a salt; at the same time, if it helps,  it helps.

I am an ER MD in New Orleans. Class of 98. Every one of my colleagues have now seen several hundred Covid 19 patients and this is what I think I know.

Clinical course is predictable.

  • 2-11 days after exposure (day 5 on average) flu like symptoms start. Common are fever, headache, dry cough, myalgias(back pain), nausea without vomiting, abdominal discomfort with some diarrhea, loss of smell, anorexia, fatigue.
  • Day 5 of symptoms- increased SOB, and bilateral viral pneumonia from direct viral damage to lung parenchyma.
  • Day 10- Cytokine storm leading to acute ARDS and multiorgan failure. You can literally watch it happen in a matter of hours. 81% mild symptoms, 14% severe symptoms requiring hospitalization, 5% critical.
  • Patient presentation is varied. Patients are coming in hypoxic (even 75%) without dyspnea. I have seen Covid patients present with encephalopathy, renal failure from dehydration, DKA. I have seen the bilateral interstitial pneumonia on the xray of the asymptomatic shoulder dislocation or on the CT’s of the (respiratory) asymptomatic polytrauma patient. Essentially if they are in my ER, they have it. Seen three positive flu swabs in 2 weeks and all three had Covid 19 as well. Somehow this ***** has told all other disease processes to get out of town.
  • China reported 15% cardiac involvement. I have seen covid 19 patients present with myocarditis, pericarditis, new onset CHF and new onset atrial fibrillation. I still order a troponin, but no cardiologist will treat no matter what the number in a suspected Covid 19 patient. Even our non covid 19 STEMIs at all of our facilities are getting TPA in the ED and rescue PCI at 60 minutes only if TPA fails.
