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, podcast, or significant work.
Here is today’s list:
1. Ted Talk – Curtis “Wall Street” Carroll: How I learned to read — and trade stocks — in prison. “Financial literacy isn’t a skill — it’s a lifestyle. Take it from Curtis “Wall Street” Carroll. As an incarcerated individual, Carroll knows the power of a dollar. While in prison, he taught himself how to read and trade stocks, and now he shares a simple, powerful message: we all need to be more savvy with our money.” (ted.com)
Excellent Ted talk. Thought provoking and filled with insights.
2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – CataractCoach Manual SICS with nucleus bisection.
3. 5 Questions with Yoshihiro Yonekawa, MD (Retina Today, January/February 2021). Constantly inspired by colleagues who share a love of learning and mission to protect sight. With thanks to Dr. Yonekawa for his innovative techniques and compassionate patient care. I often wonder when cutting edge colleagues have time to sleep!
4. Iliad by Homer – Book 15. Listening to the LoyalBooks free podcast version. (Wikipedia | Spark Notes)
5. KOL Knockout™: Cataract Edition — Maximizing the Use of Aberrometry, Femtosecond Lasers, and Advanced IOLs to Improve Postoperative Outcomes in Cataract Surgery. Join us on Wednesday February 24 at 9 pm EST! Delighted to be a panelist with cutting edge colleagues. Registration (FREE CME!)
