#ProtectingSight #380: How do you know what’s true? Cataract surgery learning curves, seizures, & homonymous hemianopsias. Bond funds, index funds, & the equity risk premium.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Sheila Marie Orfano: How do you know what’s true?. “A samurai is found dead in a quiet bamboo grove. One by one, the crime’s only known witnesses recount their version of the events. But as they each tell their tale, it becomes clear that every testimony is plausible yet different. And each witness implicates themselves. What’s going on? Sheila Marie Orfano explores the phenomenon of warring perspectives known as the Rashomon effect. [Directed by Jeremiah Dickey, narrated by Bethany Cutmore-Scott].” (ted.com)

Ted-Ed talks are among my favorites. Often 5 minutes or less and filled with insights.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD & Guest Dr. Carlos Y. Nunomura. 1148: surgical skills at case 2000. Excellent case.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Seizures in Neuro-Ophthalmology.

Dr. Lee’s neuro-ophthalmology reviews are perfect for lifelong learning.

4. John C. Bogle – The Little Book of Common Sense Investing: The Only Way to Guarantee Your Fair Share of Stock Market Returns (Little Books, Big Profits). Chapter 13-14.

One of the best investments in the world (**Wish I had picked up in 2007!). Timeless pearls by Jack Bogle, the founder of Vanguard. Each chapter is filled with insights.

5. Professor Aswath Damodaran. Session 4: Equity Risk Premiums. Superb lecture series on valuations.
