Fake News as big business

Fake News as big business

Today, thanks to the internet and social media, all what is required to publish news stories is a website or a phone. And to the horror of decency and in disregard for standards, it has become a business to churn out fake news for money or to attack people. That does not condemn all online newspapers. There are some great ones; some very professional ones could be relied on to confirm breaking news. If they haven’t reported a story that breaks during the day, they have not gone to sleep. They are checking.

According to by Wikipedia fake news is as “a type of hoax or deliberate spread of false information, be it via the traditional print or broadcasting news media or via Internet-based social media.

To qualify as fake news, a story has to be written and published with the intent to mislead in order to gain financially or politically. As such, intentionally misleading and deceptive fake news is different from obviously satirical or parody articles or papers.

Fake news is active in many more countries than Nigeria. In the United States it played a major role in the victory of Donald Trump. According to reports Pro-Donald Trump fake news dominated Facebook in the months leading up to the presidential election in early November. An analysis by Buzzfeed found that fake news stories related to the election did better on Facebook than real news stories from August through Election Day.

Fake news is business

Fake news is business. Laurie Penny an author and contributing editor to the New Statesman notes: “Even those of us who create and consume news can forget that fake news is a commodity – a commodity with a business model behind it, subsidised by advertising.

Fake news generates clicks because people click on things that they want to believe. Clicks lead to ad revenue, and ad revenue is currently all that is sustaining a media industry in crisis. Journalism is casting about for new funding models as if for handholds on a sheer cliff.”

In some countries, fake news stories are meant to blackmail their targets for money or they are sponsored by some rich men for character assassination.

The demand for fake news

The business model of fake news thrives on the demand for it. The consumer of fake news is a major cause of the proliferation. The following reasons have been identified by psychologists and media experts.

Gullibility: Many poorly educated people take what they read in newspapers and online media as gospel truth they are proud to spread. Studies show that online news readers don’t seem to really care about the importance of journalistic sourcing – what people in the academia call “professional gate-keeping.” This attitude, together with the difficulty of discerning online news sources, is at the root of why so many believe fake news.

Loss of humanity: Fake news thrives because in a world that is increasingly losing its humanity, people want false news about others to be true. In the case of President Buhari, there were of course some people who lost out in many ways with his emergence as President, and people who wish to be saved from the ant-corruption war.

Implicit Bias: Psychologists explain that there is the tendency for humans to group people into categories. We are inclined to trust people we consider members of our own group more than those of a different group. The word implicit indicates that it is a bias that influences us without our knowing it.

Confirmation Bias: Experts describe confirmation bias as our tendency to seek out information that confirms what we already think or want to be true; and actually turn a blind eye to facts that contradict our beliefs.

Lethal Combination: According to Dr David Braucher when implicit biases and confirmation biases work together, their potential to lead us astray increases exponentially. “As our implicit bias leads us to trust and view more positively those of our own group, we become more insulated, only hearing from people of our own group.

As those of our own group share our beliefs, they share “facts” that confirm our beliefs. It is a feedback loop, and we end up living in a bubble,” he explains.

Lack of critical thinking: Forbes’ contributor Jordan Shapiro suggests that the real problem is not falsehoods or inaccuracies, but rather that everything about the popular landscape of digital media currently encourages us to see the world the way we want it to be. But many people lack the right education for critical thinking.

Failing heart signs you cannot afford to ignore

Failing heart signs you cannot afford to ignore

By Sola Ogundipe

The heart is a pump and heart failure occurs when the heart muscle doesn’t pump blood as it should. It can be ongoing (chronic) or may start suddenly (acute).

Between 20 to 30 per cent of all admissions in Nigerian hospitals today are related to heart diseases, notably heart failure.

Currently, heart failure has no cure. The patient will need to take medicines and follow a treatment plan for the rest of his life. Despite treatment, symptoms may get worse over time.

You may not be able to do many of the things that you did before you had heart failure. However, if you take all the steps your doctor recommends, you can stay healthy.

Why it occurs

Certain conditions, such as narrowed arteries in the heart (coronary artery disease) or high blood pressure, gradually leave the heart too weak or stiff to fill and pump efficiently.

Heart failure often develops after other conditions have damaged or weakened the heart. However, the heart doesn’t need to be weakened to cause heart failure.

How it occurs

In heart failure, the main pumping chambers of the heart (the ventricles) may become stiff and not fill properly between beats. In some cases of heart failure, the heart muscle may become damaged and weakened, and the ventricles stretch (dilate) to the point that the heart can’t pump blood efficiently. Heart failure can involve the left side (left ventricle), right side (right ventricle) or both sides of the heart.

Generally, heart failure begins with the left side, specifically the left ventricle — the heart’s main pumping chamber. Over time, the heart can no longer keep up with the normal demands placed on it to pump blood to the rest of the body.

Common signs and symptoms

There might be shortness of breath (dyspnea) on exertion or when lying down, or weakness due to heart failure and not have any fluid building up. Others are: Fatigue and weakness; swelling (edema) in legs, ankles and feet; rapid or irregular heartbeat; reduced ability to exercise; persistent cough or wheezing with white or pink blood-tinged phlegm; increased need to urinate at night; swelling of abdomen (ascites); sudden weight gain from fluid retention; lack of appetite and nausea; difficulty concentrating or decreased alertness; sudden, severe shortness of breath and coughing up pink, foamy mucus and chest pain if heart failure is caused by a heart attack.

Risk factors

The number one risk factor for heart failure is high blood pressure- The heart works harder than it has to if the blood pressure is high. Normal blood pressure is rises with each heartbeat and falls when the heart relaxes between beats.

While blood pressure can change from minute to minute with changes in posture, exercise, stress or sleep, it should normally be around 120/80 mm Hg (systoli/diastolic) for an adult age 20 or over.

Coronary artery disease- Narrowed arteries may limit the heart’s supply of oxygen-rich blood, resulting in weakened heart muscle.

Heart attack – Damage to heart muscle from a heart attack may mean the heart can no longer pump as well as it should.

Diabetes – Having diabetes increases risk of high blood pressure and coronary artery disease.

Certain medications. Medications that may increase the risk of heart problems are many and include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs); certain anesthesia medications; some antiarrhythmic medications; antihypertensives and other prescription and over-the-counter medications.

Sleep apnea – The inability to breathe properly while you sleep at night results in low blood oxygen levels and increased risk of abnormal heart rhythms. Both of these problems can weaken the heart.

Congenital heart defects – Some people who develop heart failure were born with

structural heart defects.

Valvular heart disease – People with valvular heart disease have a higher risk of heart failure.

Viruses – A viral infection may have damaged your heart muscle.

Alcohol use – Drinking too much alcohol can weaken heart muscle and lead to heart failure.

Tobacco use – Using tobacco can increase your risk of heart failure.

Obesity – People who are obese have a higher risk of developing heart failure.

Irregular heartbeats – These abnormal rhythms, especially if they are very frequent and fast, can weaken the heart muscle and cause heart failure.

When to see the doctor

Not all conditions that lead to heart failure can be reversed, but treatments can improve the signs and symptoms of heart failure and help the patient live longer. Lifestyle changes — such as exercising, reducing salt in diet, managing stress and losing weight — can improve quality of life.

One way to prevent heart failure is to control conditions that cause heart failure, such as coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, diabetes or obesity.

See your doctor if you think you might be experiencing signs or symptoms of heart failure. Emergency treatment is necessary for chest pain, fainting or severe weakness, rapid or irregular heartbeat associated with shortness of breath, chest pain or fainting, sudden, severe shortness of breath and coughing up pink, foamy mucus.

Although these signs and symptoms may be due to heart failure, there are many other possible causes, including other life-threatening heart and lung conditions. Don’t try to diagnose yourself. If you have a diagnosis of heart failure and if any of the symptoms suddenly become worse or you develop a new sign or symptom, it may mean that existing heart failure is getting worse or not responding to treatment. Contact your doctor promptly.

Follow a treatment plan

Treatment can relieve symptoms and make daily activities easier. It also can reduce the chance that you’ll have to go to the hospital. Thus, it’s important to follow your treatment plan. Take your medicines as your doctor prescribes. Get advice from your doctor about how active you can and should be. This includes advice on daily activities, work, leisure time, sex, and exercise. Your level of activity will depend on the stage of your heart failure (how severe it is.

Take precautions

Certain actions can worsen your heart failure, such as forgetting to take your medicines, not following your diet (for example, eating salty foods) and drinking alcohol. These actions can lead to a hospital stay. If you have trouble following your diet, talk with your doctor. He or she can help arrange for a dietitian to work with you.

Avoid drinking alcohol. People who have heart failure often have other serious conditions that require ongoing treatment. If you have other serious conditions, you’re likely taking medicines for them as well as for heart failure. Try to avoid respiratory infections like the flu and pneumonia. Ask your doctor or nurse about getting flu and pneumonia vaccines.

Plan ahead

If you have heart failure, it’s important to know when to seek help. Know when to get emergency care. Keep handy the phone numbers for your doctor and hospital and a list of medicines you’re taking.

Emotional issues and support

Living with heart failure may cause fear, anxiety, depression, and stress. Support from family and friends also can help relieve stress and anxiety. If you have heart failure, your outlook depends on the cause and the severity, your overall health, and other factors such as your age. Some people’s symptoms and heart function will improve with proper treatment.

However, heart failure can be life-threatening. People with heart failure may have severe symptoms, and some may require heart transplantation or support with a ventricular assist device.
