Welcome to January 25th, 2023 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate a study in opposites and sharing our love for books. Calvin Coolidge became our 30th United States President in 1923 upon the death of Warren G. Harding. He then ran for reelection in 1924 and won the Popular vote by a margin of 25.2, which is still considered a landmark victory. By 1928, Coolidge announced to the press, “I do not choose to run,” when commenting on the upcoming Presidential election. This statement caused widespread debate about whether or not he meant the opposite. But the President's life had been touched by the tragedy of losing his son, and he felt it was time to retire. He is credited with restoring dignity and prestige to the office of President after the political landscape had reached an all time low. While some politician's make a game of doing the opposite of their campaign promises, we celebrate a Commander in Chief who knew how to quit while he was ahead on National Opposite Day. In the early 1500s, Leonardo da Vinci kept a notebook to jot down his observations of the world around him. Among other things, he discusses why fossils of fish can be found in mountains and why the moon shines so brightly. It's full of random notes and illustrations, and is written in Da Vinci's famous backwards writing, which can only be read when viewed in a mirror. This simple 18 page book, known as the Codex Lester, was bought and sold several times over the years and became one of the most expensive books in the world. In 1994, Bill Gates bought it for just under 31 million dollars. On Library Shelfie Day, share your own love of books by taking a selfie in front of your prized editions.

Leonardo da Vinci's painting of The Mona Lisa, also called La Gioconda has captured society's collective imagination. Her hold on the audience is so intense there is a widely known phenomenon called, The Mona Lisa Effect referring to the experience of feeling like the subject of an image is looking directly at the viewer no matter where one is standing in the room. Simply put, people feel like Mona Lisa is staring at them and her eyes follow them around the room. According to scientists at Bielefeld Unversity in Germany, La Gioconda does not look directly at the viewer. Her gaze is said to be about 15 degrees to the right looking at the viewer's ear or over their shoulder. They concluded that ironically, The Mona Lisa does not demonstrate the Mona Lisa effect.

Perfectionism holds artists back. It gets the best of us, both junior and senior artists like. It's part of the inability to manage ourselves. It also ends up costing more: You're spending so much time on the project, you burn through the budget. You end up paying the client for the privilege of working on their project. There is a famous quote from Leonardo da Vinci, “Art is never finished, only abandoned.” But if you're creating art as a business, you need to know when enough is enough. You're the one who has to give yourself the constraints. Your goal is to create the best work within those constraints. All of this can be avoided if you: Track your time; and Have a clear target of what you aim to deliver. Failure is also part of the process. It helps you identify the dead ends in the process and to avoid them. But the ego sometimes gets in the way and forces you to avoid admitting defeat. In addition, if you do your art every day – like Goro Fujita or Beeple (see links below) – you can see your progress. What gets measured – gets managed! Speaking as a Studio Owner and VFX Supervisor, Allan McKay tackles the subject of perfectionism: how it sabotages artists' careers, how to defeat perfectionism – with self-established constraints, clear communication and having a clear vision of the process ahead – and how to identify and avoid self-sabotage.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection released their plan this week for Friendship Park, taking community input into account, and revising a plan that caused a public outcry. But park advocates are not satisfied, and said it furthers the border wall plan set forth by former president Donald Trump. And, Imagine: You are at the grocery store, ready to check out. You put your card in the reader. It is declined. And you have no other way to pay. That is what is happening to thousands of San Diego residents who have had their EBT cards hacked and drained of funds. Next, some people give birth at home by accident. But increasingly, mothers are choosing midwives and home births over doctors and hospitals. And, Leonardo Da Vinci may be better known for painting the Mona Lisa than for writing thousands of pages of journal entries. But, playwright Mary Zimmeman was so intrigued by his writing that she took his words and crafted a play around them. “The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci” opens at The Old Globe in Balboa Park on Saturday. And, finally, a San Diego author shares her new young adult novel, “This is Not a Personal Statement.” Tracy Badua's book follows 16-year-old overachiever, Perla Perez, whose life is thrown into disarray after she is inexplicably rejected by her dream college.
Brendan Bannister, the CEO of Naturalabs.io, is one smart marketer. We first met in 2018 when he was the CMO and Creative Director at William Painter. After taking my YouTube/Google course, he scaled ad spend on YouTube from $2k per day to $100k per day! We decided to start meeting and swapping ideas, war stories, and things we were testing. We soon realized the value of sharing this knowledge with others and decided to record a session and bring it to the world! In this episode, we dive into CRO, creatives, data-driven marketing, R&D for marketing departments, and the golden years for YouTube and Facebook Ads and how they achieved 13x growth for William Painter. Here are some highlights: How the famous da Vinci quote, “Simplicity is Ultimate Sophistication” should be a guiding principle for marketers. Is media buying dead? If so, what is taking its place? How good brands are sort of like algorithms. “Design is hack” and what that means for your marketing efforts. The role “brand” plays in your ability to scale. Why Brendan is now living and working full-time in Dubai. Plus more!

To make microlearning successful in your organization you must first understand what it can and can't do. Learning Strategist, Consultant and Author Dr. Robyn DeFelice explains how to think about microlearning as part of your overall training goals and not just a way to deliver training. Show notes:In this interview, Robyn DeFelice stresses how and when to successfully use microlearning and makes these key points.Microlearning is much more than creating short-form training. If the only thinking behind the learning is to make it short, the training may miss the mark.As a method for training, microlearning can help you achieve performance goals, but it is not a replacement for all other learning formats and approaches. It often works best as a complement to a larger training program. To determine when and how to use microlearning, start with the purpose and potential of the training. Are you seeking to change behavior? Ask yourself why you want to use microlearning and what you hope to get out of it.Read more about microlearning in these resources from our guest, Dr. Robyn DeFelice.Behind The Scenes: The Making of Microlearning CampaignsAdvocating for Microlearning: Lead with Purpose and PotentialIs Microlearning a Concept, Method, or Product?

UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's Hospital in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and Dr. Jonathan Rippentrop, urologist from Physicians' Clinic of Iowa are once again pioneering robotic surgery utilizing single port (SP) robotics – as the first and only hospital in the state with this technology – adding it in 2019.The da Vinci Single Port SP, was initially released to a limited number of hospitals in the world. At St. Luke's the da Vinci SP is used for certain urologic procedures including prostatectomies and nephrectomies. With the da Vinci SP surgeons operate using one small (about one inch) incision before deploying the robot's surgical instruments through a single port. The ability to enter the body using a single port enables surgeons to perform more complex procedures. This minimally invasive surgery improves patient outcomes and recovery time. This is particularly noticeable in cancer cases, where surgeons can now access more narrow spaces without compromising precision. To operate using the da Vinci surgeons use a special console with hand and foot controls to move the robot arm and manipulate the surgical instruments. A small, 3D-HD flexible camera helps surgeons see and perform the surgery. The robot translates the surgeons' natural hand motions at the control console into corresponding movements of the robotic instrument.Prior to the implementation of the da Vinci SP, a robotic prostatectomy surgery typically involved five to six dime-sized incisions in the patient's abdomen to insert the minimally invasive instruments. Prior to robotic surgery, patients would undergo open surgery, which required significantly larger incisions and a longer recovery period. Patients that have robotic surgery can resume normal activities in a matter of weeks rather than months.Dr. Rippentrop has been a pioneer in robotic surgery and was one of the first surgeons to operate using the surgical robot in 2005, when St. Luke's was the first hospital in Cedar Rapids to acquire the system. Surgeons at St. Luke's perform 15 types of minimally invasive procedures. The robots are used for general, gynecology and urology surgeries at St. Luke's.Learn more about Single Port Robotic surgery at unitypoint.org/cedarrapidsDo you have a question about a trending medical topic?

You Deserve to Say YES to Yourself Do you ever wish you had a less complicated life? Even if your job and life are overcomplicated out of necessity, like launching a rocket or performing brain surgery, you can still simplify everything. How do you do it? The fact is, the actions you are taking in your life and your job are probably not causing the overwhelm. It's the people and the results that are causing you to feel that way. The easier way to under-complicate is to begin saying "No" to the arbitrary and unattainable demands of others and focus exclusively on the results you want. Here are a couple of ideas: 1) Practice the law of "Good Enough." Perfectionism is over-rated. It will waste years of productive time that you could use to enjoy life. Set your own standards and rise to them. 2) Get good at saying "No." Make that two-letter word your default answer for everything. And remember, sometimes, saying nothing at all gets the same result. 3) Keep in mind that the only thing you must do in life is taking a BREATH. Everything else is optional and self-inflicted. Leonardo da Vinci said," Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." Why not show everybody how sophisticated you are? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Why do auditors need to do a better job of marketing themselves? If you had 20 seconds to pitch Internal Audit to Elon Musk, what would your pitch be? If you were asked to create a short internal audit slogan, what would it be? These were the questions answered by Charles Schrock, publisher of the Audit Explainer website, and retired CAE. Follow him for some of the most fantastical internal audit stories. Like how Leonardo da Vinci became famous because of an internal auditor, and how an auditor was instrumental in testing and naming the Pontiac GTO. Fantasy?

I veckans avsnitt av ”Så in i Själen” samtalar jag med Göran Appelgren pastor i Swedenborgskyrkan och Gustav Fornander ordförande i Skandinaviska Swedenborgsällskapet. Samtalet kommer naturligtvis att handla om Emanuel Swedenborg. Emanuel föddes i Stockholm den 29 januari 1688. Som ung man blev han känd för sitt mekaniska sinne och sina uppfinningar. Swedenborgs vetenskapliga arbete var imponerande och han har blivit liknad vid Leonardo da Vinci. 1719 blev familjen adlad och tog namnet ”Swedenborg”, tidigare Swedberg. Emanuel tog nu plats i riksdagen och lämnade där flera bidrag i finansiella, ekonomiska, utrikespolitska frågor nästan ända till sin död. Vid mitten av 1740-talet tog Swedenborgs liv en helt ny vändning. Från att ha koncentrerat sig på det yttre påbörjade han nu en inre resa.Under hela hans ”andliga period”, som varade från mitten av 1740-talet fram till hans död 1772, fortsatte Swedenborg med sitt ”normala” liv. Han fortsatte som aktiv medlem i den svenska Riksdagen. Han reste till London och Amsterdam många gånger för att kunna publicera sina böcker. Även om de var skrivna på latin kunde de inte ges ut i hans hemland, på grund av de stränga religionslagarna som rådde i Sverige på den tiden. Swedenborg dog i London den 29 mars 1772, efter att han förutsagt sin dödsdag och betalt hyra till precis den dagen. Han blev begravd i den svenska kyrkan i Wapping. Då denna kyrka skulle rivas tidigt 1900-talet, blev kvarlevorna mycket högtidligt fraktade till Sverige. Swedenborgs kvarlevor vilar idag i en sarkofag i Uppsala domkyrka. Nu vet ni lite mer om Swedenborgs bakgrund. Och nu ska vi fördjupa oss ytterligare i den andliga sidan hos Emanuel Swedenborg. Varmt välkomna till ”Så in i Själen”.”Gud, som i Sig Själv är Kärlek, dömer ingen till helvetet. Himmelen och helvetet är ett självvalda tillstånd, både i detta livet och i nästa. Tron på en enda Gud och ett liv i kärlek till våra medmänniskor är vägen till frälsning.” Emanuel Swedenborg.

REDIFF - "La Cène", "l'Homme de Vitruve" ou encore l'inénarrable "Joconde" qui attire au Louvre des millions de touristes chaque année... Eh oui, c'est bien dans l'histoire de Léonard de Vinci que nous entrons ! Peinture, ingénierie, architecture, botanique, anatomie, astronomie, optique... Rien n'échappe à ce regard pénétrant. Ce touche-à-tout visionnaire est l'incarnation du génie. Si sa vie entière a été passée au peigne fin pour des générations d'historiens, l'homme semble être une inépuisable source d'énigmes.

And I thought, this was after I graduated from college, and I thought: "There's so much more I can do with my life". And so now I'm a real estate attorney and, you know, bestselling author. And so, really in life there are a lot of, you know, failures and rising, failing and rising, you know, that happened. And so for me I rose up after failing to get to where I am today. 01:23 Sam Wilson: Wow. That is quick. You did it. 90 seconds or less. That sometimes can be hard. Real estate attorney. Failing to rising. I know this is the title of over of your book. What is that actually? I know it was, it's the Lighthouse Method. 01:37 Angela Lalande: That's it. Okay. Yes. The Lighthouse Method. 01:39 Sam Wilson: Before we get too far in, tell our listeners where they can find it, and then I want to hear your story and talk about the Lighthouse method and how this has really come to be. 01:47 Angela Lalande: Thank you, sam. Yes, the lighthouse method. You can find it on Amazon. Really if you Google the Lighthouse Method and my first name, which is Angela, it should pop right up. And so that's where your listeners can find it. 02:00 Sam Wilson: Awesome. Cool. So tell me the backstory, the inspiration for writing the lighthouse method. It sounds like it stems from potentially a painful period in your life. 02:09 Angela Lalande: Yes. It, it did. And so, I was in my own darkness about 11 years ago, almost 12 now. And so there's a period of time where I had my own journey of coming from darkness to light. And so now that I am healed, I desired to empower others to also rise out of darkness. You know, I was thinking about your listeners. I would imagine there's a vast majority, if you took a survey you know, if your listeners took a survey and you had asked them: "Hey, how many of you are dealing with a deep monumental setback or a dark period are you in the dark right now?" I would imagine if they were being honest with themselves, a vast majority would say: "Hey, yes, that's me". And so, so it really I knew this message was kind of burning in inside of me for a while now. And in fact, the book stayed, it started in the form of a letter that stayed in my laptop for more than a year. Before I got a book coach and we hashed out the outline and everything and it de developed after another year into the book that it has now become. 03:04 Sam Wilson: Wow, that's really cool. So what is the lighthouse method and tell me this, maybe even before we get into that, why do you think this is important? I mean, it really sounds like it applies to anybody in life, anybody in business, anybody trying to do something. But how does this really apply, I guess, to everyday people and why? 03:24 Angela Lalande: So, any person, no matter where you are, you know, we all have things that happen in our lives that cause us to, to shrink into the dark. It's just a part of living. Dark circumstances can arise out of nowhere. Sometimes we make choices that put us in the dark. Sometimes things happen to us that put us in the dark. And then, yes, this can happen. And you know, I know that your show, you deal with a lot of investors now in the first person that they need to invest in is really in themselves and in order to do or scale their businesses the way they need to properly, they need to be out of the dark themselves. 03:57 So this can empower your listeners as well as any person who may be dealing with a situation or a setback in how to over overcome, because we were all designed and created to shine. That's it. And so, for those people who may think that they're alone, you are not alone. And there is a place and a strategy to overcome. So these steps, I make it simple. You know, some people may be so, far in the dark. They didn't, don't know where to start to get out of it. So this book lays out these steps and really my path and how what were the things that I did during my time or how did I get out of it? And so that, that's what happens here in this book. 04:32 Sam Wilson: That's really interesting. Tell me what are the steps? If you can, and I know the idea here is that our listeners end up going out and actually reading the book, so I'm not asking for the whole book. 04:44 Angela Lalande: Yes, I'm gonna lay the steps out for you and I wanna go into a couple of them for, but just because of Tom, I know I can't do all of them, but and cut me off if I need. You need to. 04:53 Sam Wilson: No, carry on, please. 04:55 Angela Lalande: Because they're so wonderful and important. So the five steps in the lighthouse method. First, you prepare to rise up. Secondly, become a prism. Three, have the right support system. Four, bend your light and shine and then five is find harbor and become it. So I'll explain these a little more detail first in preparing to rise up and I'll really probably go into one and two deeper, but especially two. In preparing to rise up, you must first cast the vision for healing. Think of some of the greats throughout history. Before Leonardo da Vinci painted the Last Supper. He saw the masterpiece in his mind. Before Venus and Serena Williams were tennis legends. They saw themselves as champions. They cast the vision. The same can be said of somebody looking to rise out of the darkness of depression, anxiety, or fear. If they see it, they be can become it. So you must first cast vision. Then you commit to taking regular actions to stay healthy. This is really filling your time with things that are good for your mind, body and spirit. One of those things is listening to a podcast on overcoming. So this is, you know, since we're doing a podcast right now, you know, if you can find somebody's story. Somebody who's overcome may be listening to their own victory will give you the courage to walk towards obtaining your own. So I love that. So you cast a vision. For healing, you commit to take regular actions. To stay healthy, you honor your emotions. That's thirdly in preparing to rest. Honoring your emotions means you must feel pain, grief, anger, sadness, and process them to heal you. Process instead of suppress. Suppression will only take you further into your own darkness. So those are a couple of steps in preparing to rise, that's the part I wanna dive into quickly. The second step become a prism cuz it's really exciting for me. And it's really the other steps developed around this one: become a prism. So, in order to become a prism you must be transparent and purified where the impurities in your life are extracted. This allows you to be a conduit for light. Now become a prism. Why did I need that step? That it's because of Augustin-Jean Fresnel. Did you recognize that name from science? 07:13 Sam Wilson: I do not. 07:14 Angela Lalande: Well, I didn't know him either until I started researching lighthouses. Okay. Cuz his name kept popping up. So, and you probably didn't realize I'd be giving you a science and history lesson today, but here we go. 07:25 Sam Wilson: I love it. 07:26 Angela Lalande: Augustin-Jean Fresnel, the world knows him as the French physicist who's invention of the Fresnel lens, revolutionized lighthouse technology in the early 19th century. His invention is called "the invention that saved a million ships". So a Fresnel lens, isn't that amazing? So you save so many lives. The Fresnel lens is made up of concentric sections of distinct prisms or triangular pieces of glass. It can take all the light. And chand it out into the night, penetrating the night to over 20 miles out to sea. So before his invention, too many sailors were lost to shipwrecks because the light that admitted for the lighthouse was not bright enough. So ships would run a ground on rocks. Sailors would die because they could not see where they were. So it's the prisms in the lighthouse that cause a light to pierce at night. But a prism doesn't always start out in the way we might imagine. Before it can become a beautiful creation, it must go through a purification process. And let me drill that down a little bit more. So, prisms are typically made of glass. Most glasses made by combining sand, soda, ash, and limestone, and melting these materials at a very high temperature. Once this happens, the impurities inside melt away and the dirt and debris transforms into a beautiful, pristine sustaining creation. So just kind of giving that visual there. Just as a prism must go through a purification process. We too must go through our own purification process in order for our light to pierce the night. When we are cleansed, when all our dirt is washed away, we can see and be seen with clarity. So in the book, and I'm not gonna dive into them, but I do have a purification process that I do list in there which is made up of five parts. I like the number five, I guess. Humility, confession, repentance forgiveness and replacement. So quite simply, and not quite so simply, if you're postured in humility, You confess your sins are wrongdoings. And sometimes you're not only confessing your sins, you're just confessing what happened to you? Because if you were put in the dark by someone else's choices, sometimes, you know, we confess one to another, right? So, if you're postured in humility, you confess. You repent, forgive yourself and others, and then replace the negative self-talk, false accusations and lies with the truth of who you are. That you are actually brave, courageous, more than a conqueror. The end result is a mindset shift and truly you break agreement with the devil, you become a prism. 10:05 Sam Wilson: Angela, it sounds like a lot of this is a mindset shift that not just somebody who's maybe struggling with some deep, dark, heavy thing, but that all of us can benefit from. I mean, is that a fair analysis? 10:19 Angela Lalande: Yes, absolutely. And I love that you're asking that question with the prism. If you think of the qualities of a prism, it's transparent. It's see through that it's not clouded or muddied by something, even if it's an a belief that's not right, you know? We are created to create and to achieve and to go for things and not be stuck in a box. So when we are transparent and can see clearly, we're able to see that we're made for much more than we give ourselves credit for. Isn't that right? 10:50 Sam Wilson: Absolutely. No, that, that's very cool. What do you think someone, if they spent the time to investigate this and say, man, this is maybe some, something to dig into, like what has been the effect in your life and maybe what do you propose could be the effect for other people as they go through this process? 11:08 Angela Lalande: Yeah. Yeah. I think for some people when they start the book and really as they're reading, they may be able to - some of their own personal experiences, things that may, they might not have even thought about for years that they didn't realize was even holding them back. May come to the surface and then which will be great, is because when they come to the surface you can deal with them and then overcome them and release them. So, you know what I love about, the last step is find harbor and become it. That's when you courageously rise out of the waters of depression, anxiety, fear, or whatever those waters are that are holding you back. And you actually take your place, your rightful place, which is on the shore looking out. And the benefit is somebody who you know, has healed. You're able to find somebody else. You'll be able to look past yourself and outside yourself to find other people and bring them home. So that's the goal. 11:59 Sam Wilson: I love it. And that's a great analogy. I hadn't quite tied all those together yet. I'm a slow learner here in that is the lighthouse method. I've always said that for, the easiest way to get over depression or, you know, feelings of like, you know, unhappiness is to go find somebody else in need. Like the fastest way is to go serve someone else. It's like, oh man, like, I can go help this person. By the time you're done helping them, you feel a whole lot better about yourself, which is a weird, kind of self-serving way, but it's mutually beneficial. So I love it. 12:31 Angela Lalande: You're exactly right because in doing that you're taking the focus off yourself. You're seeing the need of somebody else. If we continue, if we only focus on ourselves. A, things may seem bigger than they actually are, right? It's, you know, when we can actually look at others, we're able to have a heart. Our heart posture is different. What I mean? 12:49 Sam Wilson: Yes. Yep. Absolutely. Absolutely. It is. No, I love that. And I think so many, so, so many times we have, you know, we go through goal setting exercise as we go through like, Hey, what do I want 2023 to be like, what? You know, we go through these processes. And somehow there's always in the end of it, I think we're always setting bigger and better goals but the idea of, I think you said taking your rightful place, I like that. I think that's a great way to put it. Where it's like, no, like I, I will live into what I was created to become and here's how I'm gonna do it. So a very cool book. I think this'll be fun and hopefully speak to some of our listeners and maybe they can get a copy of this book and really dig in deep on it. I know, I certainly will. Just for a personal exercise. Cause I think there's always value in things like this. I forget where I heard it, but it was something to the effect of everything you want lies on the other side of fear, right? If only we can push through the things that we're afraid of or that might be holding us back if we can somehow, you know, take your method here. I love the steps that you've outlined there. So anyway I won't keep talking about it. I'm just gonna go read your book and digest it from that point forward. I do want to just shift gears real quick though, and hear a little bit about your real estate attorney business, what you do on that front, and maybe give our listeners, you know, part two of who Angela is? 14:05 Angela Lalande: Thank you. Yes. So I am the CEO and owner of Lalande Title. We are a real estate closing company in Louisiana. So we offer title services, settlement and escrow services as well. So when people are in layman's terms, if they're looking to purchase a home or property, or you know, investors who are looking to invest in property, we handle all the paperwork at the end, we pay all the parties. It's the happy place at the end. Of course, during, there can be problems that happen we have to work through or some other things. But usually at the end of the day, it's always a happy place to be because the seller gets money and the buyer is, has new property. Hey, fantastic. We wanna make sure we include both of those there in the show notes. Angela, if our listeners wanna get in touch with you or learn more about you, what is the best way to do? 14:51 Angela Lalande: Yes. I would say, you know, our website through the Real Estate Company. The title company is www.lalandetitle.com. That's LALANDE title.com. You can also find me on Facebook, Angela Lalande. And on Instagram as well. You can find with company or my personal Instagram account, @aclalande. And I would love to connect. 15:14 Sam Wilson: Fantastic. Thank you, Angela, for your time today. I certainly appreciate it and look forward to getting a copy of your book. 15:18 Angela Lalande: Thank you, Sam. Appreciate you. Take care. 15:21 Outro: Hey, thanks for listening to the How to Scale Commercial Real Estate Podcast.

Ben is perhaps is most renowned for being the Architect who designed Shanghai's famous Xintiandi (which means “New Heaven and Earth).Xintiandi is so successful that it has become a verb and not only in China but across the globe. Developers say to architects, ‘Can you Xintiandi this project for me?' Ben says he listens to people and culture and he sees not only the vision and design, he sees opportunity where others didn't. He's done it, not just once, again and again.

Prior to the Middle Ages, human cadaver dissections were a societal taboo. Early medical schools across Europe came to understand the necessity of dissection in anatomical education, spurring the construction of anatomical theatres.

In 2017, Rohin Francis AKA Medlife Crisis uploaded a YouTube video titled “Leonardo da Vinci's theory about the heart was right”. This first video about how the heart valves close was watched by 412K people, garnering more than 700 comments from a diverse audience who connected to the subject with fascination, curiosity and humour. This week's guest on Parallax is Dr Rohin Francis, Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust and prolific YouTuber. Rohin believes that authenticity is one of the keys of his videos' success. When asked about his journey to medicine he summarises: “I was being rebellious and ended up doing the most cliché job for an Indian possible.” He turns the table and asks Ankur what he think is behind the stereotype of the Indian cardiologist. Rohin shares an advice that he received at the beginning of his career: “If you can deal with an average day, the exciting day will take care of itself.” Ankur asks Rohin about Medlife Crisis and the work that goes into producing a show followed by 500K people. Rohin reiterates his passion for research and science communication. Ankur and Rohin discuss what it means to be yourself on social media and what is Rohin's advice to our early-career listeners.

But that was before Smith strode onto the stage at the Academy Awards in March and slapped comedian Chris Rock, who had made a joke about Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. 史密斯是「解放」（暫譯）的主角，這部設定於南北戰爭期間的電影今年初拍攝殺青時，蘋果視為奧斯卡必勝參賽者，但那是在3月的奧斯卡頒獎典禮前。史密斯在典禮時走上舞台，掌摑喜劇演員克里斯洛克，因為他開了史密斯妻子、潔達蘋姬史密斯的玩笑。 Will Smith, who also won best actor that night, has since surrendered his membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and has been banned from attending any Academy-related events, including the Oscar telecast, for the next decade. 威爾史密斯那晚贏得最佳男主角獎，那之後他退回美國影藝學院會員資格，且被禁止未來十年參加所有學院相關活動，包括奧斯卡獎。 Now Apple finds itself left with a $120 million unreleased awards-style movie featuring a star no longer welcome at the biggest award show of them all and a big question: Can the film, even if it succeeds artistically, overcome the baggage that now accompanies Smith? 現在蘋果發現，它花1.2億美元拍攝這部符合奧斯卡得獎風格的未上映電影，片中明星在這個最大獎項會場卻已不再受歡迎。一個很大問題是：即使在藝術上成功了，這部電影如今能夠克服史密斯帶來的包袱嗎？ According to three people involved with the film who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the company's planning, there have been discussions inside Apple to release “Emancipation” by the end of the year, which would make it eligible for awards consideration. Variety reported in May, however, that the film's release would be pushed into 2023. 要求匿名談論蘋果公司計畫的三名參與電影人士說，蘋果內部曾討論在今年底前上映「解放」，好讓電影符合獎項考慮資格。然而，「綜藝」雜誌5月報導，電影上映可能推遲到2023年。 When asked for this article how and when it planned to release “Emancipation,” Apple declined to comment. 當被問到計畫如何及何時上映「解放」時，蘋果拒絕置評。 “Emancipation,” directed by Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day”) and with a script by William Collage, is based on the true story of a slave known as “Whipped Peter,”who joined the Union Army while still in the South. 「解放」由「震撼教育」導演安東尼法奎執導，編劇為比爾克爾吉，根據一名叫做「鞭傷彼得」的奴隸，在南方加入聯邦軍的真實故事改編。 Apple set up a general audience test screening of “Emancipation” in Chicago earlier this year, according to three people with knowledge of the event who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not permitted to discuss it publicly. They said it generated an overwhelmingly positive reaction, specifically for Smith's performance, which one of the people called “volcanic.” Audience members, during the after-screening feedback, said they were not turned off by Smith's recent public behavior. 根據三名知曉活動、但不被允許公開談論此事而匿名的人士表示，蘋果今年初在芝加哥進行一場針對一般大眾的「解放」試映。他們說，電影得到驚人的正面反應，特別是史密斯的演技，有人形容為「有如火山爆發」。在試映結束後的觀眾回饋中，有人說他們不會因為史密斯最近的公開行為而討厭他。 Smith largely disappeared from public view following the Oscars. But in July, he released a video on his YouTube channel in which he said he was “deeply remorseful” for his behavior and apologized directly to Rock and his family. 奧斯卡獎典禮後，史密斯幾乎自公眾目光中消失。但他7月在自己的YouTube頻道上傳一段影片，表示對自己的行為「深感悔恨」，並直接向洛克及其家人道歉。 Next Article Topic: Apple's Eye-Catching New Home Disrupts Silicon Valley Things change when a spaceship comes to town. Tourists stroll by, whipping out their iPhones to get a photo. New businesses move in. And real estate prices go up even more. 當太空船來到城裡，許多事情都變了。遊客在這裡流連，迅速拿出iPhone拍照。新商家進駐。房地產價格漲得更高。 Apple's new home in Cupertino — the centerpiece being a $5 billion, four-story, 2.8 million-square-foot ring that can be seen from space and that locals call the spaceship — is still getting some final touches, and employees have just started to trickle in. The full squadron, about 12,000 people, will arrive in several months. But the development of the headquarters, a 175-acre area officially called Apple Park, has already helped transform the surrounding area. 蘋果公司在加州古柏迪諾市的新家——核心是耗資50億美元（合台幣約1500億元），面積280萬平方英尺（約7萬9000坪）的4層樓環狀建物，能從太空中看到，當地人稱為太空船——仍處在最後裝修階段，員工才剛開始陸續遷入。總計1萬2000人將在數月內入駐。 不過，蘋果新總部修建已推動周邊地區的變化。新總部占地175英畝（約21萬坪），正式名稱是蘋果園區。 In Sunnyvale, a town just across the street, 95 development projects are in the planning stages. The city manager, Deanna J. Santana, said she had never seen such action before. In Cupertino, a Main Street Cupertino living and dining complex opened in early 2016. This downtown enclave includes the Lofts, a 120-unit apartment community opening this fall; small shops; and numerous restaurants and cafes. Other local businesses are also gearing up in anticipation. A Residence Inn at Main Street Cupertino, expected to open in September, has been slightly customized to meet the needs of Apple employees. Guests will have access to Macs and high-speed internet connections, said Mark Lynn, a partner with Sand Hill Hotel Management, which operates the hotel and consulted with Apple about what its employees need at a hotel. 在蘋果園區對街的桑尼維爾市，有95個開發案正規劃中。市經理迪安娜．桑塔納說，她未曾見過這樣的發展。在古柏迪諾，居住和餐飲綜合建築「古柏迪諾大街」在2016年初開幕。這個商業區包括有120戶公寓的社區Lofts，將於今秋推出；還有小商店、大量的餐廳和咖啡館。 其他本地企業也滿懷期待在做準備。古柏迪諾大街一間長住型飯店預計9月開幕，飯店稍微調整過，以滿足蘋果員工的需求。經營飯店的沙丘飯店管理公司向蘋果諮詢過其員工對飯店有什麼需求，公司合夥人林恩說，飯店客人有麥金塔電腦和高速網路可用。 “All the things we have, lined up with what they needed,” Lynn said. “They will represent a large part of our business.” Tech companies are nothing new for Cupertino. Apple has called the city home for decades, and Hewlett-Packard had a campus in Apple's new spot, employing 9,000 people. The surrounding towns have been remade as well in the last decade, as giant tech companies have transformed Silicon Valley's real estate into some of the most expensive in the country. 林恩說：「我們所有事物都配合蘋果員工的需求，他們會在我們業務中占很大比重。」 對古柏迪諾而言，科技公司並不新鮮。蘋果把這個城市當成家已有數十年，而蘋果新總部所在地曾是惠普一個雇用9000人的園區。過去10年，古柏迪諾周遭城鎮的風貌也翻新了，因為科技巨頭已使矽谷轉變為全美房地產最貴的地方之一。 But city officials and residents say this project is like nothing they've seen before. It is even bringing tourists. Onlookers snap pictures of the spaceship from the streets. TV helicopters circle above. Amateur photographers ask residents if they can stand on driveways to operate their drones, hoping to get a closer look at Apple Park. “I just say, ‘Hey, go ahead,'” said Ron Nielsen, who lives in Birdland, a Sunnyvale neighborhood across the street from the spaceship. “Why not?” 但城市官員和居民說，蘋果園區跟他們看過的其他開發案不一樣。園區甚至帶來了遊客。 遊客在街頭拍攝太空船的照片。電視台的直升機在它上方盤旋。業餘攝影師問居民可否站在他們的私家車道上操作無人機，以便更近一點看看蘋果園區。 尼爾森住在桑尼維爾市伯德蘭德地區，就在太空船對街，他說：「我就說，『好啊，行』，為什麼不可以呢？」 Source: https://paper.udn.com/udnpaper/POH0067/315730/web/ Next Article Topic: New Apple Watch heralds ‘smart healthcare' revolution for aging societies The new model iPhone was released mid-last month to a somewhat muted reaction from the market. However, at the same event Apple Inc also released an updated Apple Watch, called the Apple Watch Series 4, which showed that the company is working furiously behind the scenes to break into a new field, as it quietly builds an eco-system around “smart healthcare.” Due to the importance of safeguarding human life, the entry threshold into the healthcare market is high, but the potential rewards are significant. As humans live longer, we are becoming ever more reliant on technology and artificial intelligence as a means to look after our health. 新款iPhone在上個月中發表，市場反應是無甚驚奇。不過從同場發表的Apple Watch，可看出蘋果已在另一個領域鴨子划水，悄悄建起了生態系「智慧醫療」。因為人命關天，這是一個門檻極高的市場，但商機也很大，尤其在人類壽命愈來愈長的未來，勢必仰賴更多科技和人工智慧來照顧我們的健康。 The definition of “smart healthcare” is extremely broad. Starting with the da Vinci surgical robot, already on the market for over a decade, the area now includes specialist fields such as the automatic transfer of patient blood pressure monitoring data to hospitals and AI-assisted artificial gene synthesis (gene printing), which is able to rapidly compile DNA sequences and produce biopharmaceuticals. While attending a discussion forum by the Industrial Technology Research Institute in Taiwan last month, major pharmaceutical company Merck & Co predicted that revenue from AI-related health care alone — which currently stands at about US$600 million — will grow to around US$20 billion by 2026. Furthermore, AI constitutes just one small piece of the overall smart healthcare market. 智慧醫療的定義廣泛，從問世十幾年的達文西手術機器人、將數據自動回傳醫院的血壓機、到基因合成學借助AI及機器學習，能快速編寫DNA序列，製造生物藥劑來治療疾病等等。國際大藥廠默克上個月來台出席工研院產業創新論壇時就估計，目前光是與AI相關的醫療保健產值，全球約六億美元，二零二六年將達兩百億美元；而AI不過是智慧醫療的一小塊領域。 Humanity is on the cusp of an imminent medical care crisis. According to US research, there is a positive correlation between the patient-to-nurse ratio and patient mortality rate: For every additional patient that a nurse has to care for, the 30-day mortality rate for hospitalized patients increases by 7 percent. 人類面臨的醫療窘境，已迫在眉睫。美國研究指出，每位護理師照顧的病人數，和病人死亡率呈現正相關：護理師每多照顧一名病人，病人住院三十天的死亡風險增加百分之七。 As a result of various background factors, “smart healthcare” will be an unstoppable force in the future. As such, global manufacturers, whether involved in communications, machinery, pharmaceuticals or consumer technology, are all getting involved, and Apple naturally wants to claim a piece of the pie for itself. At last month's launch of the updated Apple Watch, Apple revealed that the device now supports a heart rate monitor and wrist sensor and represents a significant step forward for the wearable device. Previously, the watch was only able to record a wearer's heart rate, but the technology has been upgraded so that Apple Watch can now monitor a user's heart condition in a way that provides real medical value. 在種種背景下，智慧醫療是必然之勢；因此全球廠商不論其專長是通訊、機械、製藥或3C，都在積極投入，蘋果當然也不缺席。上個月發表的Apple Watch，能支援心律檢測及手腕感應，這讓穿戴裝置邁進了一大步，從以往只能記錄心跳幾下，升級到可監測具有醫療價值的心律狀況。 In addition to the above new hardware functionality, Apple is also building a health eco-system. Last year, Apple embarked on a partnership with Stanford University Medical Center to found the Apple Heart Study program, which uses Apple Watch to collect large amounts of data on heart rate activity from volunteers. This year Apple has signed agreements with more than 90 hospitals across the US so that patients can use their mobile phones to access their own medical records, making it possible for users to bring their medical history with them wherever they go. If the results are successful, it may well create a snowball effect and spread to other medical institutions. 蘋果不只推出上述的硬體新功能，也在建構生態系。去年它和史丹佛醫學中心合作啟動「Apple Heart Study」計畫，透過Apple Watch收集自願者的心律大數據。今年又與全美逾九十家醫院簽約，病人可透過手機看到自己的醫療紀錄，落實病歷帶著走。若成效良好，未來很可能產生滾雪球效應，擴及更多醫療機構。 Source article: http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2018/10/09/2003701979/2 Powered by Firstory Hosting
Have you ever looked at a piece of toast, a cloud or a nearby house and had the impression there's a face in it, looking right back at you? If you're like most people, it happens to you on a regular basis, and once you've seen the face, you just can't un-see it! It's down to a human tendency known as pareidolia. The psychological phenomenon comes from the Greek words para, meaning “beside” or “beyond” and “idolia”, meaning form or image. It's basically our brains playing tricks on us, but for a very good reason. And it's nothing new either; Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci wrote about it in his notebooks. Pareidolia is an example of apophenia, which is the tendency to make sense of, or connect things that are actually unconnected. Our brains are always looking for patterns in information from the outside world, to use as a basis for the decisions we make. Do you have any examples? Why does the brain do that then? Are some people more affected than others? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions! To listen to the latest episodes, click here: What is bae-realing, the new dating trend?

Fait méconnu, E.T a un point commun avec la Joconde. Tout comme Mona Lisa, il est connu dans le monde entier, et a lui aussi été créé par le génie italien. Pas Léonard de Vinci, mais Carlo Rambaldi ! L'un des rois des effets spéciaux, spécialisé dans les marionnettes robotisées. Le King Kong de 1976, c'est lui, la créature d'Alien, c'est lui et donc E.T. aussi. Steven Spielberg dit même de lui qu'il est le "Geppetto" de E.T. Pour animer le personnage, Carlo Rambaldi a pris le brief assez sommaire de Spielberg, qui précisait que "seule la mère de cette créature peut être capable de l'aimer". Brief accompagné d'un collage où, pour le visage de E.T., le réalisateur avait ajouté le menton et le nez d'un bébé de 5 jours sur les yeux et le front d'Albert Einstein. Le tout complété par le corps de Donald Duck pour son arrière-train ! Tous les jours à 6h50 sur RTL, Florian Gazan révèle une histoire insolite et surprenante, liée à l'actualité.
Concierto/Viernes Temáticos: Música visual (II). Leonardo da Vinci: la música de lo invisible. . Pintor, escultor, arquitecto, ingeniero, pionero del vuelo, anatomista, científico: estos fueron, entre otros, los innumerables oficios con los que Leonardo da Vinci desarrolló su talento. Pero una de sus primeras biografías (Giorgio Vasari) ya señalaba que su primer trabajo fuera de Florencia había sido el de músico. En este concierto, se proyectan imágenes de creaciones de Leonardo mientras I Fagiolini interpreta obras, tanto de su época como posteriores, que incitan a contemplar el arte a través del prisma del sonido. Se plasma así en la práctica una premisa del propio Leonardo: “La música no puede considerarse sino la hermana de la pintura”.

What I learned from reading Hackers and Painters: Big Ideas From The Computer Age by Paul Graham Subscribe to listen to Founders Daily (my new daily podcast)[4:00] How To Make Wealth by Paul Graham [4:01] Wealth is stuff we want: food, clothes, houses, cars, gadgets, travel to interesting places, and so on. You can have wealth without having money. If you had a magic machine that could on command make you a car or cook you dinner or do your laundry, or do anything else you wanted, you wouldn't need money. Whereas if you were in the middle of Antarctica, where there is nothing to buy, it wouldn't matter how much money you had.[6:00] All a company is is a group of people working together to do something people want.[7:00] It turns out, though, that there are economies of scale in how much of your life you devote to your work. In the right kind of business, someone who really devoted himself to work could generate ten or even a hundred times as much wealth as an average employee.[8:00] And the people you work with had better be good, because it's their work that yours is going to be averaged with.[9:00] In the Company of Giants: Candid Conversations With the Visionaries of the Digital World by Rama Dev Jager and Rafael Ortiz. (Founders #208)[10:00] A very able person who does care about money will ordinarily do better to go off and work with a small group of peers.[10:00] Paul Graham's Essays (Founders #275)[11:00] What is technology? It's technique. It's the way we all do things.[12:00] Sam Walton got rich not by being a retailer, but by designing a new kind of store.[12:00] Sam Walton epiosdes#150 Sam Walton: The Inside Story of America's Richest Man by Vance H. Trimble.#234 Sam Walton: Made In America by Sam Walton.[13:00] Use difficulty as a guide not just in selecting the overall aim of your company, but also at decision points along the way. At Viaweb one of our rules of thumb was run upstairs. Suppose you are a little, nimble guy being chased by a big, fat, bully. You open a door and find yourself in a staircase. Do you go up or down? I say up. The bully can probably run downstairs as fast as you can. Going upstairs his bulk will be more of a disadvantage. Running upstairs is hard for you but even harder for him.[14:00] So few businesses really pay attention to making customers happy.[15:00] What people will give you money for depends on them, not you.[16:00] Hackers and Painters by Paul Graham[20:00] The other way makers learn is from examples. For a painter, a museum is a reference library of techniques. For hundreds of years it has been part of the traditional education of painters to copy the works of the great masters, because copying forces you to look closely at the way a painting is made.[21:00] Relentelssness wins. A great product has to be better than it has to be.[21:00] Relentlessness Wins: Many painters might have thought, this is just something to put in the background to frame her head. No one will look that closely at it.Not Leonardo. How hard he worked on part of a painting didn't depend at all on how closely he expected anyone to look at it. He was like Michael Jordan. Relentless.Relentlessness wins because, in the aggregate, unseen details become visible.[22:00] All those unseen details combine to produce something that's just stunning, like a thousand barely audible voices all singing in tune.[24:00] The right way to collaborate, I think, is to divide projects into sharply defined modules, each with a definite owner, and with interfaces between them that are as carefully designed and, if possible, as articulated as programming languages.[25:00] It turns out that looking at things from other people's point of view is practically the secret of success.[25:00] You only get one life. You might as well spend it working on something great.[26:00] The Other Road Ahead by Paul Graham [26:00] Subscribe to listen to Founders Daily (my new daily podcast)[29:00] Use your product yourself all the time.[29:00] Mind The Gap by Paul Graham[29:00] When people care enough about something to do it well, those who do it best tend to be far better than everyone else. There's a huge gap between Leonardo da Vinci and second-rate contemporaries.[32:00] Technology will certainly increase the gap between the productive and the unproductive.[33:00] So we should expect to see ever-increasing variation in individual productivity as time goes on.[34:00] Paul Graham's answer to how big of a difference can a single developer or a small team make?The answer is increasingly much. Increasingly much.Achrimedes said if he had a lever long enough he could move the world.Well nowawadys from your bedroom —thanks to all the infrastucture that exists — a combination of open source and services like AWS — the lever is enourmoulsy long.You could be sitting in your bedroom programming … a single person … and if you make something that people like and is novel it can really have a huge effect.That is very exiciting. You guys may take this for granted but anybody who is as old as me realizes how that was not the case 20 years ago.It will be interesting to see how far it goes because it is certainly not over yet.(How far can it go?)Always further than people expect.[37:00] Beating The Averages by Paul Graham [37:00] Paul Graham on Econtalk: I found that the interesting parts of programming you can't make scientific. [Startups are the same.] What makes a programmer good at programming is more like what makes a painter good at painting. It is something a little less organized. It is taste. A sense of design. A certain knack.[40:00] In business, there is nothing more valuable than a technical advantage your competitors don't understand.[40:00] A startup should give its competitors as little information as possible.[41:00] Taste For Makers by Paul Graham[42:00] Whatever job people do, they naturally want to do better.[43:00] It's surprising how much different fields' ideas of beauty have in common. The same principles of good design crop up again and again.[44:00] If something is ugly, it can't be the best solution.[46:00] In most fields the appearance of ease seems to come with practice. Perhaps what practice does is train your unconscious mind to handle tasks that used to require conscious thought.[48:00] "It is my opinion," Ferrari once wrote, "that there are innate gifts that are a peculiarity of certain regions and that, transferred into industry, these propensities may at times acquire an exceptional importance... In Modena, where I was born and set up my own works, there is a species of psychosis for racing cars." — Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans by A.J. Baime.

We meet Alex Rotter, Chairman of Christie's 20/21 Art Departments, to discuss Christie's New York forthcoming auction 'Visionary: The Paul G. Allen Collection' which runs from 9–10 November 2022 at Rockefeller Center. The collection of philanthropist Paul G. Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, includes more than 150 masterpieces spanning 500 years of art history. Reflecting the depth and breadth of Paul G. Allen's collection, the auctions connect this visionary innovator to a range of ground-breaking artists, joining Paul Cezanne with David Hockney, Alberto Giacometti with Louise Bourgeois, Georges Seurat with Jasper Johns and Agnes Martin with Yayoi Kusama. Valued in excess of $1 billion, The Paul G. Allen Collection is poised to be the largest and most exceptional art auction in history. Pursuant to his wishes, the estate will dedicate all the proceeds to philanthropy.From 29 October – 8 November 2022, view The Paul G. Allen Collection in-person at Christie's Rockefeller Center galleries in New York. Follow @ChristiesInc and visit their official website: https://www.christies.com/en/events/visionary-the-paul-g-allen-collection/overviewFrom Canaletto's famed vistas of Venice and Paul Cezanne's magisterial vision of the Mont Sainte-Victoire to Gustav Klimt's Birch Forest, Georgia O'Keeffe's 'Red Hills with Pedernal, White Clouds', and latterly, David Hockney's joyful depictions of his native Yorkshire, the collection highlights landmark moments in the development of landscape painting through centuries. Botticelli's Madonna of the Magnificat, Georges Seurat's pointillist masterwork Les Poseuses, Ensemble (Petite version) and Lucian Freud's Large Interior, W11 (after Watteau) demonstrate the enduring power of the human figure in art, while the polyvalent practice of artists such as Max Ernst and Jasper Johns show how artists can subvert tradition to move art forward. We explore some of our own personal favourite works by Georgia O'Keeffe, Agnes Martin, David Hockney, Louise Bourgeois, Bridget Riley and Barbara Hepworth.Alex Rotter grew up in a family of art dealers in his native Austria, and studied at the University of Vienna. He currently lives in New York and is responsible for overseeing a global team of specialists spanning the full scope of 20th and 21st Century art. Rotter's progressive approach to presenting extraordinary works of art to the market has yielded many of the most groundbreaking moments in auction history. Career highlights include the 2017 sale of Leonardo da Vinci's Salvator Mundi , which sold for $450 million, becoming the most expensive object ever sold at auction, and Jeff Koons' Rabbit from the Collection of SI Newhouse, which sold for $91.1 million and set a world auction record for a living artist.
