Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Technically today’s topic of “Monetizing My Blog” isn’t exactly a Finance Fridays topic for everyone. However, it is kind of a Finance topic for me, so I figured I’d share. What do you mean by “monetizing”? Well, it basically means I’m going to try to create a revenue stream on my blog. I’ve been blogging for more than 3 years now (almost 4). There were some false starts and mistakes, […]

Monetizing My Blog #illumedati   Recently updated !

Hey everyone it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Today is just going to be a short post pondering that “Baseball has changed…” before the Dodgers game. Baseball has changed? Yea. I may sound like an old man, but back when I was a kid watching the Dodgers in 90s and 2000s, there were very few metrics. Perhaps the only thing people really looked at in regards to hitting was batting average, on base percentage, slugging percentage and […]

Baseball has changed… #illumedati

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today is kind of another “thought” exercise kind of post about “Passive Basic Needs“. Passive Basic Needs? Yea. It kind of sounds weird, but it’s basically another take on “Passive Income”, but made more simplistic. I’m going to start this post this a story about my friend Nathan. Back in college I had a happy-go-lucky friend named Nathan. He was an extraordinarily smart kid although he found college classes […]

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Today is going to be somewhat of a random post about my boy “Max Muncy“. Attribution: By Ian D’Andrea – Max Muncy, CC BY-SA 2.0 Max Muncy? Yea. If you don’t watch baseball, you won’t know his name. Actually, even if you DO watch baseball you probably don’t know his name. When you think about the Dodgers the big names that come to mind are Clayton Kershaw, Corey Seager, […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is just going to be a short post on “Dural Venous Sinus Variations“. Dural Venous Sinus Variations? Yea. So, in radiology, we commonly receive studies with clinical concern for dural venous sinus thrombosis. This can be a difficult diagnosis to make. Sometimes it’s a slam dunk and you see abnormal intrinsic T1 signal in the superior sagittal sinus or sigmoid sinus or something. However, other times it can […]

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays and this should be a short post about “Button Batteries Again”. Button Batteries Again? Yea. I’ve talked about it before, but button batteries are a pretty severe hazard. The TL;DR is that kids find them and eat them and these button batteries. Then these button batteries can conduct current in the gastrointestinal tract which can lead to significant injury, even perforation. This may require extensive surgery to fix if there […]
