#ProtectingSight #485: How humanity doubled life expectancy in a century. Phaco wound burns, the Tullio phenomenon & Hennebert sign. Warren Buffett gets wed during the 1952 Omaha flood.

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

1. Ted Talk – Steven Johnson: How humanity doubled life expectancy in a century.

Brilliant talk. I had featured one of his others, Where good ideas come from, in ProtectingSight #46.

2A. Cataract Surgery – Dr. Uday Devgan – 1253: preventing a phaco wound burn. Great pearls.

2B. Dr. Deepak Megur – Phaco Basics. Direct Vertical Chop.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Tullio phenomenon and Hennebert sign.

4. Alice Schroeder, The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life (2008). Chapter 19. Warren Buffett weds Susie Thompson.

Filled with life lessons on investing, honesty, and integrity.

5. “In honor of Native American Heritage Month, the Yale Club of Washington, DC invites you to a virtual event about Yale’s first Native American Alum: Henry Roe Cloud, who graduated with a BA in psychology and philosophy in 1910, and earned an MA in anthropology from Yale in 1914. Our speakers are Professor Renya Ramirez, Cloud’s granddaughter and a professor of anthropology at UC Santa Cruz, and Dr. Ravi Goel ’93, who donated a collection of documents, photos and manuscripts about Cloud to Yale.”

Look forward to the special event on Election Day, Tuesday November 2, from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Registration is here.
