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
Have considered abandoning Walden in the last few days, and renewed to continue with the video reflection below.
