Fake and or Biased News in a Post Truth Era

After the 2016 US Election Social Networking seems to have gotten a lot more complicated.

Where it was once simple kittens and food pics, its now become a lot more real when people spread biased information that is specially crafted propaganda meant to change people minds. Arguments that no longer care about balanced perspective or adhere to any kind of moral reality in the sense that people just want to be right, so instead of looking at both sides for possibilities to an argument (for or against) people are stuck with only biased or fake information. How can we escape this downward spiral?
Here are some people who propose some ideas and talk about this topic.

Facing adversity while being Creative (alive)

Been a while since I shared my thoughts here, recently got inspired, yay feels good!

As a creator, I am always looking for inspiration and Youtube is a great source for this topic. I follow a channel on Youtube called "Tested" started by Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman from the TV show "Mythbusters" Adam employs a group of tech savey folk who talk about technology, making, film, and whatever else interests them. Below is the video, check it out if you like or maybe youve already seen it.

Here is my two cents on the topic.
Creativity often requires perseverance in the face of adversity, being vigilant and patient is all based on passion and dedication. It's part of using critical thinking to solve problems. We all have a container of techniques and experiences to draw from. Methods provide a way to be productive with processes. Sometimes with methods an the order of operations (as Mr. Savage mentions) can get mixed up and things can get messy.
I like to say,
"It's often not the situation but the way we act in a given situation that counts."
Stuff happens, we can only do our best and make the best with what we have at the time.

Symbols and their Historic and Practical Contexts

Important changes for understanding.

Hypothetically, you've been placed on the lucky team of Graphic Designers who are charged with designing maps for the 2020 Olympics that is being held in Tokyo. Sentimental or Practical?

Living in Japan

While I have a lot to say on the subject of immigration and Japan Living I also like to be involved with people who have more experience. On YouTube there is a community of folks (expats) who blog and share their lives and or thoughts on Japan living.

Japan's Future

In 1950 Japan started down a new path to enter the world on a global scale. I believe that about 75 years after that new beginning, Japan will be ready. That's in 2025.
