Thursday's free Blink. Love People, Use Things (Because the Opposite Never Works) (2021) by @JFM and @RyanNicodemus.

They've got me at the title and tag line. blinki.st/c87019b62fd6?b…
"our contemporary society is too defined by materialism – and that everyone might build fuller, happier, and less cluttered lives by adopting a more minimalist approach to living."

I don't disagree.

Thursday's free blinks.

The Science and Technology of Growing Young by @SergeyYoung200.

This is timely because as I grow out a beard on my holidays, I've noticed there are a few white hairs!

Is this going to be a Benjamin Button story?🤣 blinki.st/c87019b62fd6?b…
"The Longevity Revolution has already begun"

I'm thinking Stephen Dank and the Essendon Football Club.

Wow. Twitter emerged out of Odeo which was a podcasting platform. Who would have thought?

Some tweets on How to Write a Better thesis Chapter 8 Outcomes and results. In Evans, @pgruba & @j_zob 3rd ed. 201410.1007/978-3-319-04286-2_8 © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014 Why?

Because I'm revising my draft literature review, and working particularly on my results and discussion sections which need to be pared down.

I want to know: what is the purpose of the results section? And what about the discussion?

This morning's free blinks: Richard Nixon, the life by @jaloysius

I definitely don't know much about Nixon, but do know that he is a polarising figure and the Watergate scandal tarnished his legacy, if he had any to begin with. @jaloysius blinki.st/c87019b62fd6?b…
Nixon had served in the US Navy during WW2. He was a lawyer from a town called Whittier in California. Another officer, Lt Renneburg convinced Nixon to run for congress.

Today's free blink? Leading with Love and Laughter (2021) by @zinasutch and @DrPatrickMalone.

Looks like it will be interesting. Who doesn't want to work where you feel loved and can laugh more? Sign me up. The authors look like they've both got doctoral degrees from this post, and work/study/teach at @AU_SPA.

Today's free blink is on Navalny (2021) by @JanMattiD @m_lallouet and @Ben_H_Noble. I can't say that I have a firm grasp on Russian politics. These blinks might help. Putin has dominated Russia for almost 2 decades. According to the authors, Navalny is perceived as a threat.

Wasn't expecting this👇 this morning. So I had to ride all the way. Was a great morning for it though. blinki.st/c87019b62fd6?b…
On the ride in I got to listen to this morning's free blinks. It was GOOD.

Today's free blinkist. The High 5 Habit (2021) by @melrobbins. Sounds like a positive psychology book. I wonder what tips I can pick up. blinki.st/c87019b62fd6?b…
Start high fiving yourself in the mirror at the start of the day. It'll cost you nothing and might improve things.

Today's free blink was An Autobiography by Gandhi. Gandhi was certainly an inspirational and interesting man. blinki.st/c87019b62fd6?b…
Gandhi was an influential man. Up there with Mandela and Martin Luther King Junior as men who shaped the 20th century in good ways.

Covid 19 testing. A rant.

Last night my daughter developed a snotty nose. This morning I developed some nasal congestion.

Off to the Covid19 test centre we went. Saturday morning morphed into Saturday afternoon. There was a long line, and that's ok. I got my daughter to read Wushka - thank goodness for the eduroam provider in the vicinity that powered my trusty Lenovo tablet because my Pixel 4 was running low on juice.

Today's free blinks are on the Epigenetics Revolution (2011) by @NessaCarey blinki.st/c87019b62fd6?b…
The human genome project was published in Jun 2000.

I was a final year medical student back then and have vague memories of the announcement in the news.

Epigenetics involves the switching on and off of various genes.

Today's free blink is Moneyland (2018) by @OliverBullough. Some of the stuff that people do to avoid paying back to society, and some of the stuff they get away with seems outrageous to me after listening to this book summary. blinki.st/c87019b62fd6?b…
This book seems to be about how the rich keep getting richer.

Today's free Blink. Living Beyond "What If?" (2021) by @DrShirleyDavis. drshirleydavis.com/about-dr-shirl…
This is her biography from her website. Looks likes she's the CEO of a consulting firm, and used to be head of HR with expertise in diversity and inclusion.

Listening to the @UniMelbMDHS Graduate Research Symposium for Department of Medical Education and Department of General Practice students. Cassie McDonald talking about presenting research to an audience. Wow. She went on radio. Certainly pushing the envelope.

How to think more effectively (2020) by @TheSchoolOfLife or maybe @SchooloflifeThe. Anyway, it's interesting authorship. blinki.st/c87019b62fd6?b…
The authors conceptualise thinking as a skill which you can improve.

Let's see how they recommend improving it.

The Contrarian is a book written by @chafkin about Peter Thiel. I had heard of Thiel before - I think in the context of Hulk Hogan. Yes, definitely Hulk Hogan v Gawker is where I'd heard something.

Today's free blink was about Mary Wollstonecraft. It was written by Lyndall Gordon in 2006. Interestingly enough, the suburb of Wollstonecraft is named for one of Mary's nephews who fled to Australia to escape the association with Mary (according to wikipedia)!

I've finished my CPD triennium, and I'm thinking of how to best incorporate feedback and reflective processes into my practice going forward rather than the last minute scramble that it was this year. I'm thinking of two automated systems. The first is routine MSF. I could set up an online anonymous database (like survey or qualtrics), print out business cards with the site/QR codes, and hand them out each time I work. A simple: What's one thing I did well? What's one thing I could do better?journals.lww.com/jcehp/Abstract…

Listening to the #MedEd roundtable @UniMelbMDHS.

They're talking about trust. Immediately I think of Brene Brown, Onora O'Neill, and most recently @CasDamian's paper. "Trust is evidence resistant" according to @AndreaRizziMelb. It works on a number of different levels as outlined in this slide.
