media distortion

昨天google公布财报

很好奇公布后市场怎么反应

之前是510

公布后很快下跌了一些,逼近500了

但是很明显马上又涨回来了,收盘时又道510了

今天再看已经要到530了

可是看新闻,包括今天的新闻,还是铺天盖地的google miss expectation,股价大跌什么的

难道这些记者不自己看数据么?

现在终于相信媒体纯粹是歪曲事实了

要么就是少数媒体居心叵测,大部分媒体傻x跟风

最近看的一些书也是说媒体不可靠

如何才能发现可靠的新闻源呢?

What’s the best way to learn something?

Answer by A Quora admin:

An old teacher of mine told me a story that stuck with me the rest of my life:

A pottery teacher split her class into two halves. 

To the first half she said, "You will spend the semester studying pottery, planning, designing, and creating your perfect pot.  At the end of the semester, there will be a competition to see who's pot is the best".

To the other half she said, "You will spend your semester making lots of pots.  Your grade will be based on the number of completed pots you finish.  At the end of the semester, you'll also have the opportunity to enter your best pot into a competition."

The first half of the class threw themselves into their research, planning, and design.  Then they set about creating their one, perfect pot for the competition.

The second half of the class immediately grabbed fistfulls of clay and started churning out pots.  They made big ones, small ones, simple ones, and intricate ones.  Their muscles ached for weeks as they gained the strength needed to throw so many pots.

At the end of class, both halves were invited to enter their most perfect pot into the competition.  Once the votes were counted, all of the best pots came from the students that were tasked with quantity.  The practice they gained made them significantly better potters than the planners on a quest for a single, perfect pot.

In life, the best way to learn a skill, is to make a lot of pots.

Update:  It seems we've found the origin of the story…maybe.  A very similar story was found in Art & Fear as well as a mention in The Millionaire Real Estate Agent.  Thanks Kelly Drill!

读完the big short

这个哥们的书总是能很快读完

其他人的书越读越费力

这是一本关于次贷危机的书

从几个money manager的角度

次贷危机就像一场地震,还有随之而来的海啸

很多的银行破产,很多的人被赶出房子,很多人的投资打了水漂,很多的钱都蒸发了

但是这几个money manager从这场危机中大赚了一笔

他们从05年或者更早就已经看到危险

这几个人与众不同

这个世界大多数人随波逐流,人云亦云,跟风拥俗,只顾眼前利益,无知自负,

这几个人有一个共同特点,那就是寻求真相,追根究底,调查透彻,特立独行,不随风摇摆

贪婪无知的华尔街可以暂时的扭曲市场,蒙蔽真相

但是真实的世界最终会猛烈的反扑

只有接近真相的人才能幸免于难

圣经罗马书12章2节:

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

or

And be not fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,

今天在公司洗了个澡

踢完球以后

浴室比劳工部好多了

更宽敞,免费浴巾,还有洗澡液

浴室不是很好找

得搜fitness

后来找到一个比较全的列表

发现办公室旁边一个建筑就有浴室,真是方便

今天训练课有一个项目是ball possessions,就是没有门,两队在一个小场地互抢。谁先传球50次以上就赢。非常好玩。

昨天踢了两个多小时,今天又踢了一个多小时,不过也不觉得酸和累。争取把肚子减下去。

今天一个球都没进,浪费了好几个机会

发现对自己来说,踢球是基本的生理需求。

离住的地方很近,沿着铁轨走几分钟就到了

看到图书馆的凳子,又回到了亚利桑那

读书的时候在家里每天都座那种凳子

图书馆里基本上都是墨西哥人

外面游乐场也都是老墨

据说外面草坪有时有老莫踢球

其实这块地方交通方便,房价也不贵,就是中国人少点,学校分数也因此差点

中国人扎堆的地方房价就贵
