Every fortnight I curate among the observations and insights that have been shared on social media. I name these Friday’s Finds.

Rosalyn Yalow“The excitement of learning separates youth from old age. As long as you’re learning, you’re not old.”

Aristotle — “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” by way of @marksstorm

@WallyBock ‘I’m 74. When individuals ask me if I’m retired, I reply “What would I retire to?”‘

@malpani“The sharing economy has become a shearing economy, where platforms like Uber, LinkedIn and Airbnb keep the cream and we all get fleeced.”

Comparing the benefits of Caffeine, Naps and Placebo on Verbal, Motor and Perceptual Memory

“Naps, in contrast to caffeine, have been shown to enhance not only alertness and attention, but also some forms of memory consolidation. In particular, naps (daytime sleep between 5–90 minutes) appear to improve performance on non-medio-temporal lobe dependent, procedural skills”

The Role of Cognitive Dissonance in the Pandemic

“Although it’s difficult, changing our minds is not impossible. The challenge is to find a way to live with uncertainty, make the most informed decisions we can, and modify them when the scientific evidence dictates—as our leading researchers are already doing. Admitting we were wrong requires some self-reflection—which involves living with the dissonance for a while rather than jumping immediately to a self-justification.”

Déja Flu: Forgotten Lessons from the 1918 Pandemic — We’re Repeating Every Last One

“No one will adjust to life-saving measures if the belief disintegrates. Mistrust threatens society, so there will be no trigger nice sufficient to justify deceiving the general public.

Leaders who pettily squabble could take lives simply as certainly as if they’d fought them in battle. The most treasured assets in a pandemic are the reality and time — and there’s by no means any to waste.”
