Goji Berries
Hi! This is Gaurav! I started goji berries to improve the health and vitality of my readers. Goji berries are a high antioxidant food with an ORAC value of 4,310. But, if you are on a diet of dragon’s blood, which has an ORAC value of 2,897,110, and would rather skip over goji berries, the unsubscribe link is at the bottom.
Rest of y'all—it is feeding time!

1. Medical Misinformation: In my interactions, I find that people have the weirdest beliefs on matters related to health. There’s a reason.
According to CLAIMS, “Among the scientific articles most likely to be consumed in 2015, only 6% of the scientific articles were rated as having strong enough causal inference that it should be utilized in practice. In other words, very few studies show that a change in X would actually cause the change in Y at the level reported, just that they were related in some way.”

2. The Buck Stops Here: “When you’re leaving a foreign country and still have some of the local currency, take it to a Starbucks and load it onto a gift card. You can use the card later in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Mexico, and the Republic of Ireland.” —Recommendo

3. Faking It: Here’s a delightful article on the production of fake money for the movies.

4. 99 Problems: If you are having phone problems, ….
“I reach for my phone every time I brush my teeth or step outside the front door of my apartment building, and that, for some pathological reason, I always check my email during the three-second window between when I insert my credit card into a chip reader at a store and when the card is accepted.”
Here’s an article on how one person dealt with their phone addiction.

5. Noteworthy: A recommended course on building a second brain by digital note taking.

6. Reputation Mining: Two Nobel Prize winners come together to deliver an unsatisfactory amuse-bouche. How ironic is it that the two have phished us for phools by doing some “reputation mining” of their own? The two state that they intend for Phishing “to be a very serious book,” but go on to deliver an assortment of stories about how people are being phished. Some stories hang by the barest thread of evidence. The sections on politics are particularly cringe-worthy. That market economy is not optimized for what people “really” want is an important point deserving of careful attention. Someone serious should give it the time it deserves. Here are my notes.
