Is End Near? Life Threatening Bacteria Who Are Resistant To Every Antibiotic!


Last week, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced a disturbing and a worrying report about the death of a woman from Washoe County, Nevada. It wasn’t cancer or heart disease that killed her but a special kind of bacteria. These bacteria can create a mass extinction of many species including human, just like it took the life of its first victim.

The War We Are Losing

According to The New York Times, this casualty is the first one in a war against Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria, many doctors and scientists believe a war that we are losing. They know about the curse of antibiotic i.e. the more they are used, the worse they get by spreading their resistance genes among bacteria communities.

Imagine a Post-Antibiotic World

When antibiotic are gone, we will definitely miss them. The death toll will go high, a lot high! Even minor scrapes and routine infections could be life threatening, and common surgeries would begin to look like a Russian roulette. Tuberculosis and pneumonia and all other common diseases we used to read in history books will be back. And world economy will be down 3.8 percent, only if we fail to act.

How To Prevent Post-Antibiotic Era?

Scientists are trying to develop new Antibiotics but sadly most large drug companies have fled the field because companies can’t make a profit on what they can’t sell. But the good news is, US Congress has taken initial steps to address this alarming issue. We all hope for the best and pray to Lord that this worse-than-zombie-apocalypse never happens. And we come up with a new antibiotic before it. We should be very careful because you cannot beat bacteria on cheap, they have survived for billions of years. They are good at adjusting to new threats.

Clash Of Clans Banned Countries, Why Iran?


Iran Vs COC

If we see clash of clans banned countries list, Iran comes on top.Iran recently banned Clash Of Clans because they felt it can cause tribal conflicts and war on actual Clans! Violence, they say, Clash of Clans is causing violence. Just because you have 5+ million COC players, an innocent game made Iranian government think this is the source of all evil. This is the tunnel that leads to the west, end it! End what? a barbarian? Maybe the dragon? because it can throw fire, Fire!

Lets ‘Judge Clash Of Clans!

When dealing with critics always remember this: Critics judge things based on what is outside of their content of understanding. -Shannon

There should be a way of judging things, no matter who you are, a company’s CEO or a homeless man in a cave or a hitchhiker in a wedding dress. (I have no idea what that has to do with the topic). We all should know how to judge something, and in this case, we have a strategy game on our hands.
Lets ‘judge’ Clash Of Clans and learn what is the worst Clash Of Clans can do to you and your country.

The reason clash of clans banned countries give, Violence?

Certainly, there is nothing R-rated or PG 13 in the game, but it is still recommended to be at least 13 to play this game. The game is about renovating and upgrading your little space which you call a village. And you are a chief of this village, you will have defense items and some troops. Perhaps the only thing dirty in Clash of Clans are ‘Queen’s legs’. But a question still remains, how can Queens legs or anything in this game can cause violence.

Queen Legs?

Second reason clash of clans banned countries give, Tribal Conflicts?

The game mission or you can say game’s strategy is to attack other villages and get coins and a purplish liquid (in game terms called elixir). The game also features Clans, and maybe this is something the government can hold onto. So maybe they want to track everybody’s personal messages, but if they are thinking Clash Of Clans is manipulating gamer’s minds and convincing them to initiate some kind of a war, and chaos, they are wrong.

Clash Of Clans Banned Countries

Don’t forget to read FactfulFeeds next article about “Withdrawal Symptoms You May Feel After Quitting Clash Of Clans”. I hope you enjoyed reading about clash of clans banned countries.

How Clash Of Clans Is Causing Violence And Tribal Conflicts In Iran?


A very sad news which may break many hearts. Iranian government committee called for restrictions citing a report from psychologists, who said it encouraged violence and tribal conflicts.

BBC posted this sad story on 27 December 2016.

 The game could also negatively affect family life if young people got addicted to the game, informed the committee that polices cyberspace. Info collected earlier this year suggested that more than 64% of mobile gamers in Iran played Clash of Clans.

If you translate Clan War it means tribal war and just because a game say that doesn’t mean it is causing actual tribal conflicts. I mean at least take a look at those cute troops in the game. How can a smiling barbarian and an unattractive animated dragon harm one’s psychology?

Oh, I get it, it’s all because of that Wall Breaker person. Damn you Wall Breaker person! Why you always die when you hit the wall? That may manipulate psychology of phone owner’s brain which will make him blast himself, in front of a wall.

How To Play Clash Of Clans When It’s Not Allowed to Play It?

Whatever the actual reason behind banning Clash of Clans in Iran is, you can still play Clash of Clans on your smartphones even it is banned in your country. If you happen to be an Iranian and a ‘Clasher’ who  don’t want to lose that pretty village, don’t panic,  there are a various solution. Solutions to solve this ban on Clash of Clans, the following are the ways to get around these useless bans.

Use free VPN from Google Play store.

There are many VPN software and they are legal because they don’t do anything illegal. As a personal favorite, always download ‘SuperVPN’ because it is lite and quick, and free.

There are many software like Bluestacks which can help you with a clash of clans. Because VPN software work like a charm on PC computers and there are plenty of them on an internet. VPN is a must in any case even before running Bluestacks or any other android emulator.

Try BoomBeach (this is a slow heal)
If no solution works, don’t cry, to mend your broken Iranian heart, try Boom Beach game. Do you know it is far better, easy, less time consuming, and a real strategic game by same developers of Clash Of Clans? I love Boom Beach, and it is worth a try.

5 Life Changing Quotes You Must Read


It is not a hidden secret but a plain truth that our way of thinking creates good or bad outcomes. We all read motivational quotes on internet that tell us that success will be within our reach only when we start reaching out for it, and it is true but there is something more attached to it. Life is not only short but it is also not always perfect. It is more like a road, that has many bends and ups and down. And that is life’s beauty.

We made some quotes that may help you and encourage you to make a better change.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes. Marcel Proust

You cannot find peace by avoiding life. Virginia Woolf

If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people. Virginia Woolf

Given the choice between the experience of pain and nothing, I would choose pain. William Faulkner

Men judge generally more by the eye than by the hand, for everyone can see and few can feel. Every one sees what you appear to be, few really know what you are. Niccolò Machiavelli
