'Broadband is as essential as water and electricity' - report
More and more governments around the world now keep an eye on the status of broadband as part of their national plans with nearly half of the world’s population now using the internet, according to a report from the Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development. Along with governments actively looking to address connectivity, at least 15 countries now have strategies in place for promoting the safe use of artificial intelligence. With the vast majority of the world’s connected population inhabiting urban and densely populated areas, the problem of how to connect those in rural and remote areas to the internet is still a challenge – and an expensive one.

[小醫師的大確幸] [美國銀行] 花旗銀行 台美開戶分享
行員詢問開戶目的時 除了說是為了匯款到美國想使用花旗的全球速匯,還有想要在花旗做投資。... 從我的個人經驗總結來說,我會推薦要開美國花旗戶的大大們到唐人街開。唐人街的行員對於亞裔的友善度以及方便性都比較高,身份/地址審核相對簡單。

[小醫師的大確幸] [美國信用卡] 美國ITIN強申分享 (沒收入不投資不搬磚)
美國信用卡在沒有SSN的情況下多數銀行都不給申請(Amex轉卡除外)。但是有另外一個或許可行的方式 是改用報稅編號 ITIN,某些銀行或許會通融接受以 ITIN 取代 SSN。另外 你的信用歷史 credit history 也可以累積到 ITIN 之下, 使你未來申請信用卡更順利. 如果有了 ITIN 還能直接在網上開美國銀行帳戶(Discover, TCF bank, Ever bank, Alliant credit union)。以前申請 ITIN 似乎容易很多,不過現在IRS已經收緊了政策;如果沒有報稅需求就不會核發 ITIN 給你,所以現在台灣人申請 ITIN 如果不是在美國有投資收入會比較困難 (我所說的投資收入是買股票配息這類,券商會發報稅證明給你。...)。既然如此,我們就來創造 "正當理由” 強迫 IRS 核發 ITIN。這邊主要分享為了申請而申 請ITIN 的方法.
