#ProtectingSight #497: An 11-year-old prodigy performs old-school jazz. Perfect surgical skills & tinnitus. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

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

1. Ted Talk – Joey Alexander: An 11-year-old prodigy performs old-school jazz. I love all musical performances on the Ted stage. Recommend listening with headphones.

2. Cataract Surgery – Dr. Uday Devgan – 1265: Six mistakes young surgeons make. Watched twice! Great pearls for all surgeons.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Tinnitus in Neuro Ophthalmology.

4. James Joyce – A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man – LoyalBooks/Librivox podcast. Chapter 2, Part I-II.

Trying to read/listen to more “classic” works which a one-time pre-med student may have underemphasized in his younger days.

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.
