I was impressed by the following article about how memories are processed. Real life events, factual data learned, and fictional data imagined or seen in a movie are processed the same way. Similar memories are grouped together regardless if they were real or imagined. This is how a distorted perspective can be created. http://theweek.com/articles/680378/science-why-experience-false-memories Dr. [...]

I finished reading When I Stop Talking, You'll Know I'm Dead: Useful Stories from a Persuasive Man, the autobiography of Jerry Weintraub. He basically tells his story of going from obscurity to fame and success. You can read a brief synopsis on the book at Amazon. What I will say about it is that it [...]

Bold: How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World

2015-05-30T15:45:13+00:00

Finished reading BOLD. It has 3 main parts. The first talks about exponential opportunities based on advancement of technology. This was a great read for me because I have held the exponential theory for a long time, but I don't limit it to modern technology. My exponential theory goes back to the big bang. More [...]

Habits are tools we can use to achieve success

2018-01-24T00:49:39+00:00

Great TED talk about habit. The rat in the maze is a great example of how we learn a skill and make it automatic. We go into autopilot when we engage in habit. This frees up our brain power to focus on other things. Great athletes learn sports skills and then go into automatic mode [...]

Police Brutality in the Media

2015-06-01T16:48:05+00:00

After watching this video, it dawned on me that police "brutality" is as likely to happen to you as being killed in an airplane accident (figuratively speaking). Notice how any incident of airline tragedy is completely blown out of proportion? However you are MUCH more likely to die in an automobile accident. But do we [...]

What is the difference between a strategist and a tactician, and which one are you? The difference between having fun and being driven. I mentioned how William Kamkwamba built his [...]

Why healthcare costs are so high in the USA.

2015-06-01T16:45:59+00:00

I love the vlogbrothers, smart dudes. This is a great basic explanation as to why we don't manage healthcare as well as most other industrialized nations. I think we can learn a lot by watching how others do things. Saying USA rules! will blind us to the idea that sometimes, just sometimes, others may be [...]

My short career in reality TV.

2015-06-01T16:38:06+00:00

This is a reality TV series short pilot (sizzle reel) filmed in Melbourne FL around the 2010 time frame. I just resurrected the video and converted it / uploaded to YouTube for the first time. We had a great idea but unfortunately we got scooped, Nat Geo's Rocket City Rednecks looks suspiciously similar, I mean [...]

The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon

2018-01-24T00:49:45+00:00

Just finished reading the Everything Store about how Jeff Bezos created and ran Amazon. What an amazing story. He struggled all along the way, and used a lot of predatory practices like how Walmart uses. He worked his employees hard. He believed that he could innovate his way out of any problem. He loves technology [...]
