Saturday Morning Coffee with Mr. Living in Peru

Hello there!

Every once in a while a really interesting video shows up on my Facebook account, like this week, when I was sent a video interview with Dr. Peter Gí¬łtzsche – a Dane, who criticizes our excessive use of medicine, which is controlled by corrupt people on all levels. He is not the most popular Dane in the pharmaceutical world, but I think he has a point. I know of a few, who in my opinion are taking too many pills and probably would be happier and better without some of them.

The health industry is a BIG business and just like many governments, they sell FEAR to improve their business model. Just earlier this week, I saw a copy of a budget for a simple surgery, that you in Denmark would do in a few hours without having to stay at the hospital a night or two afterward. Here in Lima, you have to take several tests before entering this so-to-speak simple surgery, which in general lasts no more than 30. min., where they demand you have 5 additional staff to measure, test and observe, “just in case”. Had it been an emergency, I doubt all this extra staff would have been necessary. According to another doctor, this procedure, which could be done within approximately 5-6 hours including a good sleep afterward, cost more than giving birth and staying at the hospital for a few days afterward.

You might ask yourself, why don’t these people just find another hospital. Good question! The thing is, this doctor only practices in that specific hospital, which they know very well ūüėČ

This year, I’ve taken extra time to learn more about both off-line and on-line opportunities. This week, I bought 10 on-line courses, as Udemy.com was offering a fire-sale.

I bought courses related to Personal Development, Digital Marketing, AI, Crowdfunding, Presentations, Design, Growth Hacking and more. Most of the courses cost up to $200, but this week, most of them are $10. If you regret your purchase you have a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.

If you wish to learn something new, feel better about yourself, become smarter, expand your horizon, then it’s a good time to check out the latest courses from Udemy.com.

I hope you’ll find something really cool that will assist you in the future.

Last week the new list of the best universities in the world was published and “of course” MIT, Stanford and Harvard came in first, second and third, but going down the list I learned that Pontificia Universidad Catí¬≥lica del Perú (PUCP) came in at no. 431 in the world and no. 21 in Latin America. Congratulations!

Unfortunately, I didn’t find any other university from Peru in the TOP 500, but the one that I did find on the list, PUCP, has increased their position every year for the last 3 years.

This week’s joke:

A blonde goes to her doctor and says that every time she drinks a coffee her eye hurts. The doctor prepared her a hot, fresh cup of coffee to see what really happens. She took a sip of the coffee and screamed, “Ouch, that hurts!” The doctor said, “I know your problem.” The blonde asked, “Is it bad, doctor?” The doctor replied, “No, you just need to take your spoon out of your cup before you drink your coffee.”

Have a great weekend – CK

    Yes I agree with him, I have checked the medications that I was taking online and found dozens of side effects from all of them ..so I have stopped taking these drugs from the new year and I still feel as good without them ,I am now trying alternative natural ways to try and defeat my complications..
