Welcome to 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 – Amanda Palmer. The art of asking. “Don’t make people pay for music, says Amanda Palmer: Let them. In a passionate talk that begins in her days as a street performer (drop a dollar in the hat for the Eight-Foot Bride!), she examines the new relationship between artist and fan.” (ted.com)
Amanda Palmer is an extraordinary storyteller. Her talk is filled with life lessons & poignant observations. Have a box of tissues handy. This is one of the top 5 of the 75 Ted Talks I’ve watched since June.
2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – Cataract Quiz: Why did the capsule rip? Great save, Uday & anonymous resident.
3. Journal article – Intermittent Temporal Visual Field Loss in a Middle-aged Man. Hasenin Al-Khersan, MD; Natalia Villate, MD; Janet L. Davis, MD September 1, 2019. JAMA Ophthalmology Clinical Challenge
4. Book Chapter – Walden, and On The Duty Of Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau. LoyalBooks.com, SparkNotes, and Gutenberg. Chapter 12.
Have considered abandoning Walden in the last few days, and renewed to continue with the video reflection below.
