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

1. Ted Talk – Sean Sherman: Why aren’t there more Native American restaurants? Fascinating talk.

2. Cataract Surgery – Dr. Uday Devgan – 1269: chandelier lighting for a tough case. Superbly well-done.

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

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.
