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 – Menno Schilthuizen: How animals and plants are evolving in cities. “In cities, evolution occurs constantly, as countless plants, animals and insects adapt to human-made habitats in spectacular ways. Evolutionary biologist Menno Schilthuizen calls on peculiar beings such as fast food-loving mice and self-cooling snails to illustrate the ever-transforming wonders of urban wildlife — and explains how you can observe this phenomenon in real-time, thanks to a global network of enthusiastic citizen scientists.” (ted.com)
Enjoyable Ted Talk. Nice review of evolutionary systems.
2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1070: Posterior Polar Cortical Cleaving. Dr. Rosatelli is a master surgeon. Great pearls.
3. Andrew Lee MD – Toxic optic neuropathy.
Dr. Lee’s 450+ neuro-ophthalmology reviews are around 5 minutes each. Perfect for the busy clinician & trainee. I plan to watch one a day, from oldest to newest.
I signed up for the Morning Brew email after listening to this podcast episode. Excellent episode for entrepreneurs. Insights on building a business & brand.
