Weekly Roundup 1/12/20


An A La Carte of links to things I came across in the last week that I found interesting.


Astrophysicist Explains Gravity in 5 Levels of Difficulty

Wow! This is a really interesting look at just how fascinating and complex gravity is. The astrophysicist explaining gravity in these 5 levels not only has a profound understanding of gravity but also an amazing ability to teach and relate to everyone on their own level.



I Took A Trip Down Memory Lane... The Nerdy Route

I found this old book titled: "A Collector's Guide To Personal Computers and Pocket Calculators" by Thomas F. Haddock. Here is where you all will discover just how big a nerd I am. I think I've owned over half the computers in this book. I use to love old computers and old software and would pick them up at rummage sales or even out of the trash and fix them. I am just completely fascinated by the evolution of the computer and all that goes along with that. I know not too many of you will find this as interesting as I do but I thought I would share it anyway.




This Farmer Had A Million-Dollar Hemp Crop — Until South Carolina Bulldozed It

Articles like this aren't very inspiring but occasionally we need to see them in order to wake us up to the nonsense that happens when it comes to the government on all levels.




113 Year Old Teresa Hsu - Wisdom For All Ages

Anytime a person that has lived 113 years on this planet you should probably stop what you're doing and listen to what they have to say. Two things I got from her wisdom were 1)Help those who are hungry or suffering in some way with what you have. 2)Find joy in community.




Inside Bill's Brain

Every few nights I will only sleep a couple of hours for whatever reason and get out of bed and either enjoy a good book or find something interesting on TV to spend a few hours watching. This 3 part documentary on Netflix about Bill Gates was worth losing sleep over. Even if you're not a Gates fan I still think you might find it interesting how he got where he is and how he goes about life.



Book Recommendation:

Meet the Puritans: With a Guide to Modern Reprints

by Joel R. Beeke and Randall J. Pederson

Biographies are my favorite books to read and this book is like a bunch of mini-biographies all wrapped up into one. It truly is one of my favorite books on my bookshelf. I LOVE reading about the Puritans! The way they lived, the events that led them in their lives, and the nearly unbelievable amount they accomplished in their lifetime is absolutely mind-boggling to me.
