Welcome to day #34 of my daily learning journal. My daily goal is to watch one Ted Talk and one cataract surgery. I also plan to read one journal article and read/listen to a book chapter, short story or significant work.
Here’s today’s list:
1. Ted Talk – Nita Mosby Tyler: Want a more just world? Be an unlikely ally. “A more equal world starts with you. Citing a formative moment from her own life, equity advocate Nita Mosby Tyler highlights why showing up and fighting for others who face injustices beyond your own lived experience leads to a fairer, more just future for all.” (ted.com)
This was listed under recent talks on the iPad app. Filled with many life lessons and actionable pearls. 10 minutes.
2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – Residual posterior polar opacities – Excellent juxtaposition of two surgical approaches to posterior polar cataracts. 6 minutes.
3. Journal – EyeNet June 2020 – Journal Highlights (page 19-23). Very good summaries of eleven recently published articles.
4. Book Chapter – Herman Melville – Moby Dick. Listened to Chapters 87-88 (40 minutes) via LoyalBooks.com. See also Sparknotes (narration) and Gutenberg (book text). Include a well-crafted line from Chapter 81 (below).
I found a first edition Moby Dick for sale online. Anyone have $65k to spare?
Please send me feedback! Also, would appreciate suggestions of Ted Talks, cataract videos, and journal articles to share.
