How to succeed during coronavirus self-quarantine: Alexander Pushkin, Isaac Newton, and you


Now almost all countries of the world are in quarantine in connection with the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). However, do not lose heart. You must strictly adhere to the quarantine rules and finally do everything you planned to do before but never had time for.

The Great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin and the outstanding English physicist Isaac Newton were also forced to quarantine for some time. Look what came of it.

Alexander Pushkin, cholera and quarantine

In 1830, Alexander Pushkin, while preparing for the wedding, briefly stopped in financial matters at his family country seat Boldino. A sudden outbreak of cholera and quarantine locked the poet in the wilderness for over three months.

It became the most striking and fruitful period in Pushkin’s creative work. In unexpected quarantine seclusion, the poet felt an unprecedented surge of inspiration, mastered new genres and literary forms, and as a result wrote an incredible amount of his remarkable prose and poetry.

Isaac Newton, Plague, and Quarantine

In 1665, Isaac Newton was forced to leave Cambridge and returned home. The reason for this was the quarantine during the outbreak of the plague in England. Deprived of the opportunity to teach and communicate with colleagues while in isolation, Newton went much deeper into scientific research. It was then that he discovered the Law of universal gravitation and wrote many scientific papers, which have retained their relevance in our days.

What to Watch, Read and Listen to During Your Coronavirus Self-Quarantine?

It is a bad time. Thousands of people across the world are sick with coronavirus. Those who aren’t are being encouraged to stay away from public spaces. Schools, museums, movie theaters, bars, restaurants – all closed. You’re home, and you need a distraction. Let me help you. In this article you will find some propositions for what to watch, what to listen to, what to cook, how to entertain your kids. Be safe.

It will also help you to cheer up:

To crown it all

Any crisis is not only difficulties and a huge inconvenience. It is an amazing period when windows of opportunities are actively opening. Strange as it may seem, it is the best time for new ideas and discoveries, creative breakthroughs and insights.

Right now, during quarantine, we can get all these “I`ll do it later” from the far shelves of the subconscious – I’ll write, read, finish, look, try, create … later.  You can waste this time in rubbish, panic, and depression. But you can direct your energy to the embodiment of what will become a new step in your life.

So, self-quarantine, self-educate, and do not panic! Everything will be great!  

How much money the largest companies in the world lost on Friday, March 13, 2020?


As the Dow Jones suffered its worst decline since 1987 and coronavirus fears caused markets to slide around the globe, the world’s twenty richest people lost just over $78 billion combined in a single day.

Huge panic in the largest world markets keeps on growing. Stocks, indices, cryptocurrencies are going down. I decided to count a few figures. See how asset values have changed over the past month:

Companies:

Apple -25%;

Tesla -43%;

Facebook -34%;

Netflix -21%;

Alibaba -20%;

Uber -47%;

Twitter -35%;

Amazon -23%;

ZOOM +40%! (110% for 3 months, video conferencing service).

Cruise operators:

Royal Caribbean -77%;

Norwegian Cruise -79%;

Carnival -65%.

Airlines:

American Airlines -55%;

Delta Air Lines -45%;

United Airlines -58.

Oil:

Exxon Mobil -42%;

Gazprom -32%;

Royal Dutch Shell -49%;

Chevron -30%.

Indices:

S&P -30%;

Dow Jones -31%.

Cryptocurrencies:

Bitcoin -52%;

Ethereum -57%.

How much the richest people in the world lost in dollars per day:

Jeff Bezos -8 billion, Amazon;

Bernard Arnault -$7,7 billion, Louis Vuitton;

Mark Zuckerberg -$5,7 billion, Facebook;

Warren Buffett -$5,2 billion, private investor;

Amancio Ortega -$5,2 billion, Zara/Massimo;

Steve Ballmer -$4,3 billion, Microsoft;

Larry Page: -$4 billion, Google;

Sergey Brin: -$3,8 billion, Google.

Since the market selloff began on Monday, Jeff Bezos has seen his net worth shrink by more than $9 billion to $104.4 billion at Thursday’s market close. That’s on top of his $14.1 billion loss last week. While LVMH’s Arnault suffered fewer losses last week — he was down $7.4 billion — his fortune has taken a $10.1 billion hit since Monday, with LVMH shares in freefall. Needless to say, buying luxury goods is not at the top of many people’s lists this week.
