Why a doctor earns little and a footballer earns a lot
When it comes to money, what is the limit to consider it dirty money? Following criticism of the MIT Media Lab (USA) for accepting funds from alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, the center’s co-founder, Nicholas Negroponte, generated much outrage by posing the uncomfortable question that may have crossed many people’s minds: why is Epstein’s money unacceptable? “Epstein is an extreme case. But then, should we accept Koch’s money? Or Huawei’s? And so on?” he told the Boston Globe.
In the absence of clear guidelines, the main ethical criteria for fundraisers seems to be limited to avoiding scandals. So one might ask, as Negroponte did, why research funding should be contingent on potential scandal.
So if a university like MIT, or any of the many institutions and scientists Epstein supported, wants to create a clear ethical policy about what kind of money is acceptable, what would those rules look like?

There are several premises that have allowed this entrepreneur who grew up in the Bon Pastor neighborhood (Barcelona), without a business angel to guide him, to stand out: “if your business does not make you money, it is not a business, it is a hobby”; “in a business more money has to come in than goes out”; “the important thing is not the idea, it is the execution”; “copying is good, cloning is bad”; “success consists of jumping over walls that others are not willing to jump over”; “launch several projects, detect the best ones and scale them” or “it is not enough to be good, you have to make them know it”.
Although there are many books on how to get rich, Fons’ book draws from such heterodox mentors as the philosophers of Marvel (the American comic book publisher), Kamina (a character from Tengen Toppa Gurren), rock and roll, baked chicken recipes, the movie American Gangster, Jem or the pop girl (an old cartoon series), the immensely good-natured cat? Totoro, traveling vans and Tinder.
Because with money you can do things that are otherwise impossible. Also, what’s the downside? The question I would ask is: why not have money? Many people believe that money is bad and that it leads to becoming a bad person but, if you are an undesirable person, you are the same with money as without it. And if you are a good person, the same. What I am trying to explain is that without money it is possible to do many good things in life. I myself, for a long time, have had no money and have enjoyed it. But having been on both sides, I know that with money it is possible to do things that otherwise you could not. If you have to choose, it’s much, much better to have money.

That was the big problem in measuring it: if on the day of the survey our team wins or we get good or bad news, we exaggerate or worsen that self-assessment. Therefore, the measurement of well-being was not accurate.
On the other hand, with the new technologies, the same subject often values his or her well-being and we measure it objectively to relate it to the places and activities he or she frequents and how he or she manages his or her time.
Of course, it’s like when we talk about the importance of relationships. In the US talking to a stranger at a traffic light is a relationship, in Europe, on the other hand, we prefer deep ones and don’t value those.
And I am not saying that we have full control of our time, because it is obvious that we have to have income, but of the factors that decide our well-being and depend on our decisions I think it is the most relevant.
We know that being with friends or family or outdoors in nature is more satisfying than spending that time on social networks or TV, but we don’t know if for you sport is even more satisfying.

Part of the rise of FUT and the problems it can cause in minors cannot be understood without the youtubers who promote the purchase of coins. Before EA had them banned, now it counts on them for its presentations.
One more note: until a while ago, EA had banned these youtubers for promoting third party coin buying sites. It did not consider them as part of the media it invites to its presentations and events… until it started to do so. Possibly they realized that they capture many players and introduce them to this mode, in which sooner or later they will go through the official cashier, especially considering that those who buy on these pages end up getting their strike by mail.
