#ProtectingSight #419: History’s deadliest king. Combo chop & PION. Life is a series of opportunity costs.

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

1. Ted Talk – Georges Nzongola-Ntalaja: History’s deadliest king. “In 1904, Chief Lontulu laid 110 twigs in front of a foreign commission. Every twig represented a person in his village who died because of King Leopold’s brutal regime in the Congo. His testimony joined hundreds of others to help bring an end to one of the greatest atrocities in human history. Georges Nzongola-Ntalaja details the horrific abuses of Leopold’s occupation and looting of the Congo. [Directed by Héloïse Dorsan Rachet, narrated by Safia Elhillo, music by Salil Bhayani, cAMP Studio].” (ted.com description)

Ted-Ed talks are fast paced and high yield.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1187: don’t place the probe in the center. Excellent pearls.

3. Andrew Lee MD – PION.

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

4. Gautam Baid – The Joys of Compounding: The Passionate Pursuit of Lifelong Learning, Revised and Updated (Heilbrunn Center for Graham & Dodd Investing Series). Chapter 28, “Life Is a Series of Opportunity Costs.”

I continue to enjoy books on value investing, lifelong learning, mental models, and more. Excellent chapters with amazing quotations.
