Topics this week include Earnestness, the World’s Deadliest Pandemic, Explore of Exploit, holiday ideas and more…

Earnestness – Another interesting article by Paul Graham where he discussed the importance of being earnest (with due respect to Oscar Wilde).

History’s Deadliest Pandemic – 2020 is undoubtedly the year of the Pandemic. But while there is possibly some light at the end of the horizon for the Covid-19 pandemic, it is important to realise that there are deadlier ones still active and impacting some of the world’s poorest peoples. This insightful video throws light on one such Pandemic.

How To Choose New Opportunities – This article explores the Explore vs Exploit algorithm as a basis for certain types of decision making. It’s worth thinking over the concluding line – Exploration is necessary in order to exploit and enjoy the knowledge hard won along the way.

Bombay Or Mumbai? Perfectly Schizoid – I am a Mumbaikar by heart, so articles on the Maximum City always have a fascination for me. But, even if you do not have any particular affinity for this fascinating city, you might find this particular piece of writing interesting.

Hygge themed Holiday Ideas – I do hope that many of you will be taking some time off towards the end of the year. This article provides some interesting ideas to take the mind of what’s been a very stressful year and just unwind.

And that seems to be a good way to wish all my readers a happy and relaxing holidays! Take care, stay safe!
