Just finished this beautiful #book by @MerlinSheldrake on fungi.

Highly recommended!

A short thread on things that struck me from the book.
1/ The first obvious but surprising thing is that fungi is neither animal, nor plant.

For a long time it was clubbed into plants, but evolutionary history suggests that’s it’s a domain of its own.
2/ Though, surprisingly, it’s closer to animals than plants.

I did not know that.

किसने #जहर देकर मारा था लाल बहादुर #शास्त्री जी को ! सच्चाई आई #सामने

कोई भी व्यक्ति जो इस #अंग्रेजो के बनाए हुए सिस्टम में आएगा या तो वह #सिस्टम में लूट करेगा नही तो यह सिस्टम उसे #निकाल के बहार फेंक देगा क्युकी यह सिस्टम लूट को ही पसंद करता है और कुछ पसंद नही है इस सिस्टम को
आप #जानते है ? इस अंग्रेजो के बनाये व्यवस्था तन्त्र में भारत के कई इमानदार लोग गये और #सिस्टम ने उसे बहार फेंक दिया #क्योंकि वो लूट पसंद नही थे. सिस्टम ने फेंक दिया उनको बाहर ! नही #चलने दिया !
दो नाम तो आपके #सामने है एक थे श्री लाल बहादुर शास्त्री और दुसरे थे श्री मुरार जी #देसाई ! दोनों ऐसे प्रधानमंत्री थे जिनकी #ईमानदारी की कसम खायी जा सकती है
शास्त्री जी जब #प्रधानमंत्री बने थे ना धोती फटी हुई थी उनकी !

#investing #books have long spoken of it glowingly but happy to note @AswathDamodaran-IMHO among top three #valuation experts in world-went out of his way, in recent lecture to his valuation course, to recommend "Expectations Investing" by @mjmauboussin & A. Rappaport. (1/2)
Can't actually recall other instances of Aswath speaking so highly of a work mid-lecture (which doesn't mean he hasn't) -& the book itself is a masterpiece. Happily, newly revised/expanded edition out 9/21. "Expectations Investing" @mjmauboussin & A. Rappaport. #investing #books
While at it, IMHO, one can never go wrong by reading as much as possible of any/all of Professor Damadoran's #finance #books

Today, my #book

“The Treaty Prohibiting #NuclearWeapons: how it was achieved and why it matters”

is published by @routledgebooks, written during my 2019-20 sabbatical @KingsCollegeLon

➡️ more information see
#nuclearban #TPNW #HINW
2) I am very proud of and grateful that my book on #TPNW has received such great endorsements from
Mohamed @ElBaradei, Angela Kane @kaneview, Desmond Browne, @JodyWilliams97, Ramesh Thakur, Bill @PotterCNS and @DarylGKimball
The book presents the history of the #HumanitarianInitiative & the process leading to #TPNW from 2010-17.
Having been centrally involved in this process, it is a first-hand account of how the extraordinary cooperation of #states & #civilsociety made the #TPNW happen @nuclearban

#Novel #Conversation Thread @IndicBookClub

Began reading Saiswaroopa’s #Rukmini . Just in the First Chapter. In few pages, it establishes

- The persona of a spectrum of #Mahabharata characters
- The Universe of Rukmini
- The Trajectory of her journey

You get a thick peek.

The Larger Universe of MB characters gives it an epic streak. Hopefully, it will remain throughout the book. That is the larger universe that Rukmini may have to deal with?

Lets see in the coming pages.

The Universe of Rukmini, the small universe, you perceive it through the interest Rukmini shows in things around her.

I wonder how the larger universe impacts this small universe.

Got to wait and see.

📘Pebbles of Perception by @EndersenL is a hidden gem of a book.

Not even 200 pages, but full of the first principles on how to live a great life.

Here's a list of my favorites 🧵
💬Rarely the first question that comes to mind is the best one, the one that will get us the answers we need.

Open questions ➡️Open conversations

Be curious. When in doubt, go deep.
There are 2 levels of thinking:

1⃣ you get the most immediate and visible answer. It's clear to everyone.
2⃣ you consider what else might be going on, perhaps caused/hidden by the 1st level.

Know in which level you're operating and which one you need to get to.

#Book 1
#Part 1

As an outpost of Great Britain, colonial America of course
used British pounds, pence, and shillings as its money. Great Britain was officially on a silver standard, with the
shilling defined as equal to 86 pure Troy grains of silver, and with silver as so-defined legal tender for all debts (that is, creditors were compelled to accept silver at that rate).

However, Britain also coined gold and maintained a bimetallic
standard by fixing the gold
guinea, weighing 129.4 grains of
gold, as equal in value to a certain weight of silver. In that way,
gold became, in effect, legal tender as well. Unfortunately, by
establishing bimetallism, Britain became perpetually subject to
the evil known as Gresham’s Law, which states

So, I got into a LONG!!! talk with a reader/friend of mine about the world of publishing. Now, I'm not an expert, but staring down the release of my 6th book (holy shit, 6th?!), I have to reflect on a few realities of publication & open a dialogue with the #WritingCommunity
A bit of background: I've been writing since 2006. I self-pub'd my first book in 2009, and continued with self-pub ever since. This was just before self-publication became vogue. And it was a conscious choice - and it was also how I learned what I know. The hard way.

My friend said, "Getting an agent is like winning the lottery". This isn't wrong.
I tried to query, and was shot down every. single. time.
This isn't unusual. In fact, every #writer know that when you're #querying, this is par for the course.

Is the 🌍 world becoming better?

(a thread exploring this question)
1/ This thread is my reflection on the #book Factfulness.

📚 I loved the book so I'm giving away 10 copies of it.

Retweet the thread and I'll randomly pick 10 people to send the book.

2/ The key idea explored in the book is that the world has witnessed significant progress over the last few decades, but most people are unaware of that fact because they hold distorted views.

How 💸 money works.

(a massive, 100-part thread)
1/ I recently finished this excellent short #book "What Has Government Done To Our Money"…

It's available for free and I highly recommend reading it.

But in case you want the key insights, here are my notes.

Fasten your seat belts. Here we go!

== Money as a medium of exchange ==

In an economy, there's a variety of people.

Different folks specialize in producing different things and each one of them desires different things.

I’m #reading Jan-Werner Müller’s #book What is Populism. It is not a good book. It is a bad book. It manages to be ahistorical, apolitical, and radically committed to insisting that left populist are just as bad as right populists. Which is not true.
It also manages the amazing feat of identifying that populism is excluding of the other whilst othering populists in an attempt to exclude them.
No one should read this book. There are five pages on Caesarism by Gramsci in his Prison Notebooks they say more. Much more. That are historical and political and not pretending to be unengaged.

1. For the Christian penance is something very personal between him and God. He may no longer walk barefoot in the snow but still the practice of penance has to mean more than 10 Hail Marys between Confession and Coronation Street.

2. [E]nhance prayer through penance,..offer some token of shame and sorrow, to meditate on sinfulness, to reflect on Infinite Goodness, to bear witness through penance which rarely fails to provoke curiosity or conversely to keep the penance so secret that God alone sees.

Nor is penance confined only to our own sins but rather can also be a recognition of the sinfulness of the world we live in. In ‘Sackcloth and Ashes’ I refer to the example of some German nuns who after the Second World War

Today I received the most extraordinary #book... I absolutely love it, you should totally buy it too (either for a child you know, or for yourself if you're so inclined). I'm talking about @Dean_R_Lomax's Prehistoric Pets, brand-new from @templarbooks... Image
Prehistoric Pets is thoroughly educational. You look at a familiar pet animal, hear about its anatomy, natural history and wild relatives (goldfish page shown here), and then... Image
... an opening spread with a pop-up feature reveals the animal's prehistoric ancestor (or, at least... relative). Check out this #Leedsichthys, the giant #Jurassic fish! It's brilliant -- well done Dean :) Image

#book #VPA

Based on my understanding created below patterns
1. Price and volume raising
> Bullish: price closes above the previous candle and volume is greater than previous candle.

@PAVLeader ImageImage
2. Price and volume falling
> Bullish: price closes below the previous candle and volume is less than previous candle.

3. Price falling and volume raising
> Bearish: price closes below the previous candle and volume is greater than previous candle.
4. Price raising and volume falling
> Bearish: price closes above the previous candle but volume is less than previous candle.

- For short term, look for weekly pattern
- For long term, look for monthly pattern
