20 Famous Cyber Play !

From its humble beginnings as a pastime for computer geeks to becoming the global money-making machine it is today, esports has taken the world by storm and is here to stay.

When the first personal computer was created way back in the 1970s, no one could ever have imagined that computer games would mushroom into a multi-million dollar industry.

DotA (Defence Of The Ancients) Starcraft and Counter Strike were the pioneering games that paved the way for esports to be considered a viable career. While Starcraft swiftly gained popularity mainly in South Korea, DotA and Counter Strike evolved from dorm room network game sessions into international level spectator sports. 

These days, popular online games include League of Legends (LoL), DotA 2 and Overwatch. The success of these games can largely be attributed to the way the owner of each game's Intellectual Property (IP) rights manages it on a global scale.

Take DotA 2 for example - the IP rights owner Valve organises competitions in multiple venues around the world and its largest event, The International, which offers a prize line-up that amounts to millions of USD, is a mega attraction to the masses across the planet.

In the Asean region alone, there are hundreds of teams vying for the spotlight in these kinds of highly acclaimed tournaments.

Many teams play because of their passion for the game, as well as the social interaction that they enjoy social interaction that they enjoy within the esports community. GeekFam, a gaming team based in Malaysia, says that esports promotes camaraderie in a healthy competitive environment.

Although the online gaming industry has overcome many hurdles in its rise to fame, it continues to face challenges. 

One major drawback is the persisting mindset of the general public that esports is nothing more than a hobby and pursuing it as a career is simply a waste of time. Changing this perception is what GeekFam and other gaming teams are striving for by constantly engaging with the public.

In recent years, many companies have recognised the merit of associating their brand with esports. One of the biggest corporate banners is AirAsia, the official airline partner for the World Electronic Sports Games (WESG) in Asean. The airline also sponsors two major teams ranked among the best in the region - AirAisa Saiyan, a leading contender in Mobile Legends, and Team Mineski, a top player of DotA 2.

Despite the challenges, esports continues to grow with the ardent support of both the gaming community and corporate backup, with an estimated global value to hit over USD900 million by the end of 2018. We may even see esports at the Olympics soon. The recent Asian Games 2018 in Indonesia saw esports titles presented as demonstration events, a push for the inclusion of the sport in the Olympic Games in Tokyo soon.

3 WAYS TO CURE GOUT NATURALLY - EASY, FAST AND CHEAP !

GOUT ?

Is a form of inflammatory arthritis characterized by recurrent attacks or a tender, hot, swollen joint and red. Pain typically comes on reaching maximal intensity in less than twelve hours and rapidly. The joint at the base of the big toe is affected in about half of cases. It may also result in tophi, urate nephropathy and kidney stones. 

Gout is due to persistently elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. This occurs due to a combination of diet and genetic factors. At high levels, uric acid crystallizes and the crystals deposit in joints, tendons and surrounding tissues, resulting in an attack of gout. Gout occurs more commonly in those who regularly eat meat, drink beer, overweight and the best thing is always eat seafood. Diagnosis of gout may be confirmed by the presence or crystals in the joint fluid or in a deposit outside the joint. Blood uric acid levels may be normal during an attack.

SYMPTOMS ?

Gout can present in multiple ways, although the most usual is a recurrent attack of acute inflammatory (a red, hot, swollen joint and tender. The metatarsal-phalangeal joint at the base of the big toe is affected most often, accounting for half of cases. Other joints such as the heels, knees, fingers may also be affected. Joint pain usually begins over 2-4 hours and during the night time. This is mainly due to lower body temperature. Other symptoms may  rarely occur along with the joint pain including fatique and a high fever.

Long standing elevated uric acid levels (hyperuricemia) may result in other symptoms, including hard, painless deposits of uric acid crystals known as tophi. Extensive tophi may lead to chronic arthritis due to bone erosion. Elevated levels of uric acid may also lead to crystals precipitating in the kidneys, resulting in stone formation and subsequent urate nephropathy.

HOW TO CURE GOUT ?

Image result for holistic cure gout
https://www.jacknjillscute.blogspot.com/


Historically, gout was treated with foods and herbal remedies. Many of those herbal remedies became the basis of some of the modern day gout cures. Colchicine is the best example of this. It is a pharmaceutical compound that is derived from the Autumn Crocus plant.


a). Holistic Cures

>> How to cure gout holistically involves different processes of raising the pH of the body chemistry up to a more alkaline level. Because alkaline is the opposite of acid, there are different natural gout treatments or remedies that can work quickly and permanently.

>> The human body requires oxygen first and foremost, then water, then various nutritional food sources. The processes of breathing, hydrating, and eating all present valuable opportunities to raise the pH of the body chemistry up into more healthy alkaline levels. 


b). Allopathic Cures

>> With progress, other pharmaceutical drugs for how to cure gout developed from allopathic medicine. Since the 1960s gout has been treated with varying degrees of success with the drug Allopurinol. It is a xanthine oxidase inhibitor and is sold under various brand names. Primarily it works by inhibiting the production of uric acid.

>> Because the incidence of gout has risen so sharply over the last 20 years, how to cure gout is on the forefront of the efforts of the pharmaceutical companies. There are numerous new gout drugs either on the market or awaiting approval. Most work by the same technology of inhibiting the production of uric acid but others are attempting to introduce new technologies.


GOUT TREATMENTS ?


Making the effort to adopt strong breathing habits is all important. The action of breathing eliminates acidity from the body, oxygenates the blood, and helps pump the lymph fluid throughout the body. It also is the best method for controlling stress. This is critical for gout because stress results in overall toxic acidity of the body chemistry. That toxic acidity created by cortisol and adrenaline, the stress hormones, ends up having to be managed by the kidneys, just as uric acid does. 

Staying hydrated with high-quality water, and eating alkalizing foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, also plays an important role in how to cure gout.

Herbs like turmeric and teas like tulsi are also good for treating gout because they are a strong, natural anti-inflammatory. As a topical measure, you can alternate soaking the affected joint in Epsom Salts, then wrapping it in a towel with ice packs.

4 INVESTMENTS THE BEST RETURN


INVESTMENT ?
In general, to invest is to distribute money in the expectation of some benefit in the future (for example doing investment in durable of goods, in real estate by the service industry, in product development, in research and development and in factories for manufacturing. However, here I'm focuses specifically on investment in financial assets. 

In finance, the benefit from investments is known a 'return'. The return may consist of a profit from the sale of property or an investment, or investment income including dividends, interests, rental income (house, room, car) or combination of the two. The projected economic return is the appropriately discounted value of the future returns.

Investors generally expect higher returns from riskier investments. When we make a low risk investment, the return is also generally low income also.

Investors, particularly novices, are often advised to adopt a particular investment strategy and diversity their portfolio. Diversification has the statistical effect or reducing overall risk.

Investment are differs from arbitrage, in which profit is generated without investing capital or bearing risk. An investor may bear a risk of loss of some or all of their capital invested, whereas in saving the risk of loss in the value that is stated on a coin or note is normally remote.

Investment in stocks, property, in the hope of significant gain but with the risk of significant loss-speculation, involves a level of risk which is greater than most investors would generally consider justified by the expected return. An alternative characterization of speculation is its short-term opportunistic nature.

HOW DO I START TO INVEST MY MONEY?


Many people put off investing because they think you need a lot of money—thousands of dollars!— to start investing. This just isn’t true. You can start investing for as little as $50 per month.



The key to building wealth is developing good habits—like regularly putting money away every month. If you make investing a habit now, you’ll be in a much stronger financial position down the road.



Don’t believe me? Here are five ways you can start investing with very little money:



1. PLAY IT SAFE WITH TREASURY SECURITIES

Image result for treasury securities
https://www.jacknjillscute.blogspot.com/


Not many small investors begin their investment journey with US Treasury securities, but you can. You’ll never get rich with these securities, but it is an excellent place to park your money—and earn some interest—until you are ready to go into higher risk/higher return investments.

Treasury securities, also known as savings bonds, are easy to buy through the US Treasury’s bond portal Treasury Direct. There you can buy fixed-income US government securities with maturities of anywhere from 30 days to 30 years in denominations as low as $100.

You can also use Treasury Direct to buy Treasury Inflation Protected Securities, or TIPS. These not only pay interest, but they also make periodic principal adjustments to account for inflation based on changes in the consumer price index.



And as is the case with mutual funds, you can also arrange to have your Treasury Direct account funded through payroll savings.


2. PUT YOUR MONEY IN LOW - INITIAL - INVESTMENT MUTUAL FUNDS

Image result for mutual funds
https://www.jacknjillscute.blogspot.com/

Mutual funds are investment securities that allow you to invest in a portfolio of stocks and bonds with a single transaction, making them perfect for new investors.

The trouble is many mutual fund companies require initial minimum investments of between $500 and $5,000. If you’re a first-time investor with little money to invest, those minimums can be out of reach. But some mutual fund companies will waive the account minimums if you agree to automatic monthly investments of between $50 and $100.

Automatic investing is a common feature with mutual fund and ETF IRA accounts. It’s less common with taxable accounts, though its always worth asking if it’s available. Mutual fund companies that have been known to do this include Dreyfus, Transamerica, and T. Rowe Price.



An automatic investing arrangement is particularly convenient if you can do it through payroll savings. You can typically set up an automatic deposit situation through your payroll, in much the same way that you do with an employer-sponsored retirement plan. Just ask your human resources department how to set it up.


3. ENROLL IN YOUR EMPLOYER'S RETIREMENT PLAN

Image result for enroll retirement plan
https://www.jacknjillscute.blogspot.com/
If you’re on a tight budget, even the simple step of enrolling in your 401(k) or other employer retirement plan may seem beyond your reach. But there is a way that you can begin investing in an employer-sponsored retirement plan with amounts that are so small you won’t even notice them.

For example, plan to invest just 1 percent of your salary into the employer plan.

You probably won’t even miss a contribution that small, but what makes it even easier is that the tax deduction that you’ll get for doing so will make the contribution even smaller.

Once you commit to a 1 percent contribution, you can increase it gradually each year. For example, in year two, you can increase your contribution to 2 percent of your pay. In year three, you can increase your contribution to 3 percent of your pay, and so on.

If you time the increases with your annual pay raise, you’ll notice the increased contribution even less. So if you get a 2 percent increase in pay, it will effectively be splitting the increase between your retirement plan and your checking account. And if your employer provides a matching contribution, that will make the arrangement even better.

Again, Betterment is a great tool for hands-off investment management of your 401(k). If you want to take a more active approach to managing your 401(k), we’d recommend a service like Ally Invest – perfect for frequent traders looking for one of the lowest fee structures of any major brokerage firm.



4. LET BETTERMENT INVEST YOUR MONEY FOR YOU

Betterment is an automated investment platform that’s cheap and super easy to use.


When you invest your money with Betterment, the site sets you up with a portfolio that includes several exchange traded funds (ETFs).

Betterment figures out how to invest your money for you based on a short questionnaire. Investment management is actually performed by the platform, as this is not a do-it-yourself account where you buy and sell your own choice of securities.






Betterment is the perfect platform if you are new to investing and don’t have a large amount of money to open an account. Not only will Betterment handle the investing for you, but there is no minimum deposit amount to open an account and you can contribute as little as $10 at a time.

5. TRY THE COOKIE JAR APPROACH
Image result for COOKIES JARS money
https://www.jacknjillscute.blogspot.com/

Saving money and investing it are closely connected. In order to invest money, you first have to save some up. That will take a lot less time than you think, and you can do it in very small steps.

If you’ve never been a saver, you can start by putting away just $10 per week. That may not seem like a lot, but over the course of a year it comes to over $500.

Try putting $10 into an envelope, shoebox, a small safe, or even that legendary bank of first resort, the cookie jar. Though this may sound silly, it’s often a necessary first step. Get yourself into the habit of living on a little bit less than you earn, and stash the savings away in a safe place.

The electronic equivalent of the cookie jar is the online savings account; it’s separate from your checking account. The money can be withdrawn in two business days if you need it, but it’s not linked to your debit card. Then when the stash is large enough, you can take it out and move it into some actual investment vehicles.

Start with small amounts of money, and then increase as you get more comfortable with the process. It may be a matter of deciding not to go to McDonald’s or passing on the movies, and putting that money into the cookie jar instead.

Prefer that money to be invested right away? Acorns is an app that rounds up your credit and debit card purchases and invests the difference.

It’s not fancy, but it’s a start. And for people who’ve never been savers, getting that start is all the more important.


WHICH INVESTMENTS HAVE THE BEST RETURN ?


#1 -PEER TO PEER LENDING



Image result for peer to peer lending
https://www.jacknjillscute.blogspot.com/

With these companies, you’re able to loan money to individuals in small increments as if you were the bank. The best part is, you get to earn a pretty decent rate of return – usually upward of 6% or more.
As an investor in peer - to - peer lending, you’re investing in other people and their goals. It's comforting knowing you aren’t lending people you don’t know large sums of money. Instead, the money you invest is split up into increments as small as $25 over hundreds or even thousands of loans.
While it may seem strange to hear a financial advisor suggest people invest in peer-to-peer lending, I’m not the only one who sees the value in these platforms. Kansas City Financial Advisor Clint Haynes told me he supports peer-to-peer lending as an alternative to the stock market for a few reasons. First, these companies make it easy to sign up and get started. Second, your rate of return can range from 5 – 7 percent for safer loans and even more for riskier loans. Last but not least, you can typically open a new account with as little as $1000.00.

#2 -REAL ESTATE

Image result for real estate
https://www.jacknjillscute.blogspot.com/
In addition to the stock market and peer-to-peer lending websites, a second investment strategy to consider this year is real estate. The thing is, I’m not suggesting everyone run out and buy an investment property. After all, not everyone is cut out to be a landlord.
I’m certainly not. I tried investing in physical real estate seven years ago and almost lost my shirt. I learned a lot of lessons from my foray into becoming a landlord, the biggest of which was that I don’t need that kind of stress in my life.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to invest in real estate without dealing with a physical property. One option to consider is investing in real estate notes. I got started investing into real estate notes because a really good friend of mine was crushing it with real estate and offering his friends the chance to invest.
He would buy a pool of real estate properties, and then investors like myself would invest money into his project. From there, he would manage the properties and pay me a dividend or interest off that money. For me, this has been an attractive way to invest money without having to be a landlord or deal with tenants.
Obviously, there is a ton of risk in a situation like this. You have to have a lot of trust to invest in real estate notes offered by an individual.
The good news is, there are other ways to invest in real estate outside of real estate notes. One option I’m really excited about is a company called Fundrise. Fundrise offers an investing scenario similar to the one above. They buy commercial properties and allow investors to invest small sums of money. Obviously, this is yet another hands-off investment. You may own part of a commercial real estate project, but you don’t even see or deal with the property itself.
Like Lending Club, Fundrise requres an upfront sum of around $1,000.00 to get started. Once you invest, however, Fundrise mostly lets you “set it and forget it.” Even better, you may receive a pretty hefty rate of return through this platform. On the company website, Fundrise claims its returns have averaged between 8.76% up to 12.42% over the last five years. Not too shabby.
Obviously, there is risk investing in a platform like this one, too. First off, the company is newer so it doesn’t have decades of data to share. Second, you’re letting a third party choose buildings and investments on your behalf, which means you’ve given up all control.
Regardless, I think it’s pretty cool that technology has allowed investors to get access to commercial properties in a way we haven’t been able to in the past.

#3 -INVEST IN YOU

Image result for invest in you
https://www.jacknjillscute.blogspot.com/
This third options - investment option might sound cheesy, but it’s one of the best investments anyone can make. By investing in yourself, you are improving the biggest asset you’ll ever have.
Believe it or not, there are a ton of ways to invest in yourself that don’t cost a ton of cash at all. One of the best ways to improve yourself could even befree if you have a library.
That’s right; read a ton of books! But, how many should you read? Minneapolis Financial Planner Morgan Ranstrom says that reading three to five books on successful personal finance strategies or leadership skills will absolutely make you smarter over the course of a few months.
If you have more time, you could read even more than that. If you’re not sure what to read, you could even consider signing up for Leaderbox – a monthly subscription service that includes books and leadership strategies curated by thought leader Michael Hyatt.

#4 -THE STOCK MARKET


Image result for the stock market
https://www.jacknjillscute.blogspot.com/
While “invest in the stock market” is some of the most basic advice you’ll ever read, please hear me out on this one. While everyone knows that investing in the stock market has historically paid off, there are far too many people who don’t trust the financial markets and choose to sit on the sidelines altogether.
Then there are people who think the stock market is so overvalued right now that they would be crazy to jump in. But, here’s the thing: Nobody is telling you to pour every extra cent you have into stocks. Instead, I’m suggesting you invest small sums of money over time using a method called “dollar cost averaging.”
Dollar cost averaging requires us to trickle our money into investments over any length of time. It could be 12 months. It would be 18 months. Heck, it could be five years.
Colorado financial advisor David Henderson of Jenkins Wealth goes further to explain how dollar cost averaging works: “When the market is high, you buy fewer shares and when the market is low you buy more shares,” he says. This means that, over time, you will have a lower average share price using this method. Obviously, it’s easy to see why this would be beneficial.
Now that we’ve talked about the importance of investing in the stock market, let’s talk about exactly where to invest your money. What are the best tools and vehicles we can use?
This is yet another situation where the options are overwhelming. Still, I typically suggest people get their feet wet with mutual funds or ETFs.
If you have a financial advisor working on your behalf, they may be able to weed out the well-performing actively managed mutual funds from the ones that aren’t doing so great. Otherwise, you can invest in index funds, which are not actively managed but have a long history of solid returns.
If you have a brokerage account already, then you may want to stick with it. Otherwise, you’ll need to find a new place to help you invest your funds. One company I always suggest is Betterment. With Betterment, your money can be invested in ETFs and they don’t charge a fee for managing these for you. Plus, they actually pick the ETFs you invest in based on your appetite for risk, investing goals, and other factors.
What does that mean? That means that you can invest your hard-earned money, then sit back and enjoy the returns and let them do the hard work.
If you want to have more control on your investments, online brokerage firms like Ally Financial, TD Ameritrade and E-Trade make it easy to stay in charge with low fees and easy-to-use platforms.  Plus, there are a multitude of other "robo-advisors" to choose from.
As a final note, there’s one more simple way to invest in the stock market with even less effort – boosting how much you contribute to your work-sponsored retirement account. Arizona financial planner Charles C. Scott says this may be your best option yet – especially if you’re not contributing enough to get a match from your employer.
“Every dollar you contribute could get a dollar match,” says Scott. “That’s a 100% return on your investment.”
If you’re not making the most of your 401(k) or contributing enough to get a match, then you’re probably best starting there.

SUMMARY
There are plenty of ways to start investing with little money, with many online and app based platforms making it easier than ever. All you have to do is start somewhere. Once you do, it will get easier as time goes on, and your future self will love you for it!
