Use Static instead of the Globals

Oh no. php global are now deprecated in PHP!
how to refactory my code?

So, after about half day. I found the way.

Why globals or static? 
# I need something like 'reuse' not 'requery';
# I dont want query user profile in every function i need the data.

function get_current_username()
{
//do query user profile for the username
}

function get_current_picture()
{
//do query user profile for the picture
}

# I dont want mess my function with the same argument

function get_current_username($current_user)
{
}

function get_current_picture($current_user)
{
}

So with the php globals, we can skip requery like this

global $current_user;

$current_user = get_currentUser();

function get_current_username($current_user)
{
global $current_user;
return $current_user['username'];
}

function get_current_picture($current_user)
{
global $current_user;
return $current_user['picture'];
}


but for me to implement the php static, i need to refactor my codes.

Using the static in classes…
