Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:
1. Ted Talk – Shubhendu Sharma: How to grow a forest in your backyard. “Forests don’t have to be far-flung nature reserves, isolated from human life. Instead, we can grow them right where we are — even in cities. Eco-entrepreneur and TED Fellow Shubhendu Sharma grows ultra-dense, biodiverse mini-forests of native species in urban areas by engineering soil, microbes and biomass to kickstart natural growth processes. Follow along as he describes how to grow a 100-year-old forest in just 10 years, and learn how you can get in on this tiny jungle party.” (ted.com description)
Brilliant talk. A few years ago, I donated a collection of historical documents to the Forest History Society. Amazing to learn about the advances in forest science. (See Ravi D. Goel Collection of John R. Neetzel Papers, Library and Archives, Forest History Society, Durham, NC, USA.)
2A. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1195: when you should not operate. Superb pearls.
2B. D. Brian Kim, MD – Modified Stop & Chop. Superb video and narration.
3. Andrew Lee MD – Superior orbital fissure vs cavernous sinus vs Orbital apex lesions.
Dr. Lee’s neuro-ophthalmology reviews are perfect for lifelong learning.
4A. Mary Buffett & David Clark – The Tao of Warren Buffett: Warren Buffett’s Words of Wisdom: Quotations and Interpretations to Help Guide You to Billionaire Wealth and Enlightened Business Management. Chapter 9 on “Beware the Folly of Greed.”
Picked this book up for $2 at the local library book sale. A great investment as Warren Buffett shares timeless wisdom.
4B. Gautam Baid – The Joys of Compounding: The Passionate Pursuit of Lifelong Learning, Revised and Updated (Heilbrunn Center for Graham & Dodd Investing Series). Chapter 31, “The Education of a Value Investor.”
