The long-awaited death of cash may finally be coming …


Do you want to get rid of notes and coins Bear does!

“The World Bank says digital money — which lets people buy, pay and transfer money from even simple feature phones — can have an even bigger impact on the developing world, encouraging more savings and entrepreneurship. For all those reasons, noncash transactions are rising at a rate of 11 percent yearly, helped along by electronic and mobile payments, according to a report last year from Capgemini and BNP Paribas.”

“Minting and printing money is an expensive proposition, which is one reason countries like Sweden, Norway and Nigeria are actively working to remove cash from circulation. Boosters of that change tout the benefits of reducing fraud, easier budgeting and the ability to quickly pay for stuff from anywhere in the world.

Some companies are doing a good job of persuading people to pay electronically. China’s tech giants Alibaba and Tencent have convinced people to use mobile payments at a rate of trillions of dollars a year.”

Bear uses paywave with the card all the time. I still keep a small amount in notes in my wallet which will not need to be replaced for months sometimes. Never use coins anymore. I like the idea of using my phone for payments as I have not only physical security but need to use fingerprint as well for security.

My bank has no branch in my town and have not been to a branch in years. Thank you electronic banking.

My one bitch is I understand the Government in Aussie gets $0.15 tax on every electronic transaction. THIS IS TOO MUCH. Reform in this area is needed from both State and Federal Governments.

After you have read the article tell me how you feel?

Have a good day Bear

PS: Bear achieved a milestone this week. The last of my paper files has been scanned and stored in the cloud (OneDrive). With great relish I took the old wooden filing cabinets down the back and burnt them. Taken 10 years but now I have a cleaner office and a very efficient filing system with OneNote. Thank you Microsoft it works great. I can even scan the rare paper document received with Office Lens on my Pixel 2 mobile and store it.

The world loves me …

The world loves me

They need to as a result of all the images that I share I needed to go on a WordPress Business Plan I have used the 13GB allowed on the Premium Plan which last year cost $99/year. After my whinging and discounts it has cost me $250 for next year. This gives me unlimited storage for media files to share with you.

Admittedly I get some money from WordAds, the returns from this have reduced significantly. Google is getting too greedy I think.

But it is starting me thinking is it all worth it.

I started Bear Tales many years ago when I was a young bloke LOL ;). I had many friends on different social sites so I could post on Bear Tales and share to all of them in one go. No need to do individual posts on other blogs like FaceBook, Twitter, Google+ etc.. I didn’t intend for it to be commercial just sharing with friends and a bit of fun!

Bear Tales is approaching 12,000 posts. There are 10s millions of views with the best post recording almost 14 mil views. So I must be doing something right?

Now WordPress is becoming expensive and their “happiness engineers” are not so helpful nor happy. cartoon_businessman_or_entrepreneur_holding_a_giant_dollar_bill_0521-1011-0416-3143_SMU

The almighty dollar prevails!

I have spent the money taken the plan and told them things need to improve otherwise it is the last year.

Please donate cost of WordPress …

Retired now need to cover cost of WordPress.

I have ads on Bear Tales since WordAds started. I didn’t start Bear Tales to make money but the little money helps to cover computer costs. I am now retired or tired whatever it helps!

The post that Google doesn’t like was shared by a Bear Tales female follower from Canada 3 years ago and I don’t consider it anything other than funny judge for yourself My naked body. I consider it to comply and if you want to read 100 pages of crap be my guest. I started Bear Tales to share funny things not to be a Solicitor, Google. It is supposed to be fun!

Chinese scientists teleport object into Earth’s orbit for first time …

“The work is an essential step toward establishing a global-scale quantum internet.”

Bear thinks this is a big deal …

Source: Chinese scientists teleport object into Earth’s orbit for first time – Business Insider


“Researchers in China have taken the process a few steps further: They successfully teleported a photon from Earth to a satellite orbiting more than 311 miles away.

The satellite, called Micius, is a highly sensitive photo receiver capable of detecting the quantum states of single photons fired from the ground. Micius was launched to allow scientists to test various technological building blocks for quantum feats including entanglement, cryptography, and teleportation.”

Don’t state your opinion on the internet …


They will get you!
