Good article(s) I read this week
YouTube videos I liked this week
I'm a fan of Bobby Fischer and his brilliancy (although I disagree with some decisions in his chess career).
I'm still watching friends (currently at the end of season 6). The good news this week is that the team started filming a NEW season of friends! One of the best things I like was Janice saying "OH MY GOD". This video shows the whole collection.
Courses that I'm taking this week (week #11 in 2021)
I'm about to finish Garry Kasparov's masterclass in Chess. Yesterday, I finished the last videos in the "endgame" and "opening theories". Next week, I will finish the case studies part. This course is EXCELLENT and the theory and philosophy that GK provides are VALUABLE and to the point. I really wish I had taken it once it came out.
Courses that I'm teaching this weekend
Prof. John Meara (program director of Harvard PGSSC) shared excellent news today. For the first time ever, the 2021 US senate appropriations bill includes a provision to support and fund national surgical plans NSOAP in LMICs! Lismore Nebeker, Director of Research at Mobile Surgery International has led this teamwork. My PGSSC-GNI supervisor (Dr. Kee Park) mentioned on Twitter that this is what effective Global Surgery advocacy looks like.
