Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is just a short post to ponder “September“. September? While it may not seem like that important of a month in the general sense, I think it has a great deal of importance for people still in school and/or training. September kind of marks the beginning of the academic year — at least it did for me. However, my daughter started her kindergarten journey a little earlier, in […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays. Today is just a short post stating “Money isn’t real” for everyone to ponder. This picture isn’t really related to the topic. It’s a just a cute Maneki-neko I found on Pexels. “Money is just a tool.” “A means to an end.” So, in reality, in this rat race to try to obtain as money as possible, you should probably ask yourself, what is your end. Or, if you want to take it […]

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Today we’re going to talk about “Where’s the Bottom for Crypto?” Where’s the Bottom for Crypto?

Remember how I said that we probably wouldn’t see a real “crash” but a slow bleed out? Well, if we zoom out, you can probably see that this slow bleed was […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is kind of a random post about “What is Bouveret Syndrome?” What is Bouveret Syndrome? This is kind of random but recently I saw a case of Bouveret Syndrome, and interestingly New England Journal of Medicine just recently did an article about it. So today is kind of an educational day on what to look for in this interesting case, from both the clinical side and radiology side. […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today we’re going to talk about “Non-Monetary Return on Investments“. Non-Monetary Return on Investments? Yea. Basically, in general, when you talk about investments, you expect a return on your investment in terms of money (monetary). However, in this post I’m going to talk about investments we make with expected non-monetary returns in nature. The “dividends” or “interest” you receive from your investment will not be in monetary form. It’s […]

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Today we’re going to talk about a somewhat random topic, which is “Being First“. Being First? Yea. There are a lot of implications for when I talk about “Being First”. It can mean the first to do something or being the best at something. In general, it’s just about being #1. First a little background: Right now my daughter is 5 years old. She just started kindergarten. I tend […]
