#ProtectingSight #500: Inside the black hole image that made history. Posterior capsulorhexis & a rock-hard cataract. Warren Buffett buys National Indemnity. Henry Roe Cloud & Standing Up to Colonial Power.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. I started this journal on June 14, 2020, during the height of the pandemic. This has been a most enjoyable learning journey. Every day, I’ve watch a Ted Talk and cataract surgery video. Early on, I also read a journal article and book chapter. Now I include educational podcasts and ophthalmology videos.

Please send me feedback and favorite Ted Talks, ophthalmology videos, and books to enjoy!

Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Sheperd Doeleman: Inside the black hole image that made history. A fascinating Ted Talk to celebrate 500 talks in a row.

2A. Cataract Surgery – Dr. Uday Devgan – 1268: posterior capsulorhexis behind IOL. Great pearls.

2B. Dr. Deepak Megur – Principle to follow during Phacoemulsification in Hard Cataract – Phaco Basics. The CDE on this case was 88! A clear cornea on post-op Day 1. Amazing.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Gaze evoked amaurosis.

4A. Alice Schroeder, The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life (2008). Chapter 30.

Filled with life lessons on investing, honesty, and integrity. This is a must-read for any Warren Buffett fan!

4B. Renya Ramirez – Standing Up to Colonial Power: The Lives of Henry Roe and Elizabeth Bender Cloud (New Visions in Native American and Indigenous Studies). Introduction.

Getting ready for next week’s webinar on Henry Roe Cloud!

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.
