I think #5 (A great teacher has his own love of learning) is really important. Teachers needs to continually renew themselves and their knowledge. The wisdom of today may not be the wisdom of tomorrow. In fact, the wisdom of today may be proved wrong tomorrow.

I just came across a rather relevant infographic from Mashable, so I thought I'd include it here in the comments section.

After having written this post, I came across an article from PredictWise with some important points to add to the discussion. Most notably, experts predict in either/or (binary), while prediction markets offer predictions in probability (percentage of likelihood to occur).

Here's the article: A Response to David Leonhardt's "When the Crowd Isn't Wise".

I assume that you're referring to the comment regarding Asians. While the logic espoused by said comment might be a bit "off-the-wall," I didn't think that it warranted moderation.

Agreed: the potential implications are vast. It's actually a bit surprising that there is less discussion about it (on the 6 o'clock news, for example). I wonder why there hasn't been anything written about the potential (decimation?) of manufacturing jobs -- period. Of course, there will still be workers necessary to manage the machines doing the work, but with articles like this one that predict "manufacturing jobs as a significant source of job growth over the next decade," it makes me wonder if the possibilities aren't being taken seriously enough.

That's wonderful!

You didn't mention this, but I wonder if you and your significant other had to think twice about it? From what you've written, it sounds like it was an easy decision to return the money.

Thanks for sharing!

As I was checking LinkedIn today, one of the popular articles of the day: "The Case for a Four-Day Week: Here are six reasons to consider cutting your work week down a day while boosting company morale exponentially." The concept definitely is worth considering.

During the Republican Presidential debate this morning, I saw a tweet from Nick Kristof (not about the debate): "My column today is abt small children, hugs, education & poverty.Hugs are as important as vaccinations!"

The column is dated January 7th, 2012. I guess he was writing about hugs when I was writing about hugs. It's worth the read! Check it out here.

Hello Reader,

I'm glad that you found this post timely! I have found that when I look around, "synchronicities abound." That is, when I take the time to stop and see what's going on around me, there's often the answer I'm looking for right in front of me. :-)

With Gratitude,
