We See Money with Our Minds and Not Our Eyes

Who is wise? One who can tell what will be hatched from the egg that has been laid. Not he who can see the future - that is a prophet. Wisdom is seeing tomorrow's consequences of today's events. - Babylonian Talmud

https://s14.postimg.org/9p6mgj0c1/image.jpg

Some people are able to tell the future with incredible accuracy. This gift is born from an immense amount of time and energy spent in studying and watching the logical results of certain decisions. There is a reason some folks knew the housing crisis of 2008 was coming - they foresaw the natural outcomes of borrowing money that could not be repaid. They were able to profit magnanimously because of their wisdom.

Such is the nature of making money - we see it with our imagination. We hear of an opportunity and we immediately begin thinking about ways to create value from it. This is not done with our eyes. We see it in our minds, and create the mental images of what result we wish to see. The money we are able to earn is a correla

Mathematik - warum viele daran scheitern plus Rechenaufgabe!

Nach einigen Kalkulationen von Steem Rewards und Diskussionen mit Leuten (Danke @felixxx und @twinner fürs Erklären!), die es können heute morgen, hier mal was zu Mathematik. Ich war immer gut im Kopfrechnen, geht auch heute noch besser und schneller als bei den Meisten. Im Mathe Leistungskurs bin ich allerdings krachend gescheitert - aber warum? Liegt es an meiner Blödheit oder war es das Umfeld in der Schule damals? Im Studium (BWL) machten mir ähnliche (mathematische Beweise und Ableitungen) dann weniger Probleme. Aber generell gilt wohl: Erfolg hat, wer Mathematik mag.

Hier mal zwei Thesen / Wahrheiten zum Fach und ne Rechenaufgabe:

1. Das Niveau von Mathe-Studenten sinkt permanent

„Die Qualität des Abiturs nimmt ab. Der Verfall der Kenntnisse und Fähigkeiten in den mathematischen Fächern bereitet größte Sorg

Today in history: Andrés Segovia

Hello Steemians!


Welcome to today's episode of the Today in History serial, where I bring you daily historical facts and events of the current date.


Today another episode about a musician, Andrés Segovia, who was born on February 21. 1893. in the town Linares in Spain.

http://puu.sh/udKwI/9ce886cd39.jpg


He spent most of his childhood living with his uncle Eduardo, who also introduced him to music, arranging violin lessons for the young Segovia.
The violin lessons were more or less a failed attempt, but Segovia found himself playing classical guitar in which he was mostly self taught.

http://puu.sh/udLbo/a618688c4d.jpg


Andrés had his first live performance at the age of 16, in Granada, 1909.
In the coming 10 years he has successfully performed multiple concerts, in Madrid, Paris, Barcelona and made a successful tour in South America.

Human Nature, Psychobabble and Credentials

The vast majority of my writing over the past 25 years has essentially been in the form of some kind of psychobabble. 

Since my teen years, I have been interested in the study of human motivations, psychology, personality typologies, Jungian archetypes, matters of the spirit and more.

MorningGlory
Morning Glories... basically, weeds

I'd like to think that I've offered a few insights to people along the way... maybe even guided a life or two in a more positive direction.

Of course, I am not a trained therapist, nor do I own a PhD in psychology, psychiatry or social work. In fact, I come by all my psychobabble through the simple observation of-- and interaction with-- the human condition. 

There's a funny dichotomy involved in writing commentary about the human mind, spirit and the things that drive many people towards some version of per

Your Education Begins Today!

I Have Never Let My Schooling Interfere With My Education.

38.jpg

The Culture of Our World is so Upside Down.

We are taught from a young age that we have to obey the rules and memorize material that really has no bearing on our lives. I was told, when I was a kid, that I would not be able to carry a calculator everywhere I went. The teacher lied!

https://media.giphy.com/media/3oz8xIUELPICtQUolG/giphy.gif

I now have a calculator, phone, encyclopedia, Bitcoin wallet, live video, marketplace, mail, music player, camera and almost anything I desire in the palm of my hand. Sure the teachers don't have crystal balls but they teach us that everything in life has defined laws but that is false!

Anarchist Primer Series, Chapter 3: What is Property?

Yes, I am going to foolishly try to cover this topic in under ten minutes. Actually, when it all comes down to it, the objective definition of property...propriety...ap*propriate* society is pretty damn cut and dried.

I hope you enjoy this video. Please check it out and let me know what you think in the comments.

Today's episode is about a painter, the brother of Raphaelle Pealle, about who I recently wrote!
Rembrandt Peale was born on February 22. 1778. in Bucks County in Pannsylvania.

Rembrandt Peale - Self-portrait


He was born into a artist family, his father and brothers were also painters.
Rembrandt was mentored in arts by his father from an very early age, who also taught him how to paint portraits and scenery.
Already at the age of 13 he made his first self portrait, which he later used as motivation for beginning painters as an example of progress.
At the age of 17, in 1795, Rembrandt made his debut by painting George Washington, making him appear older then he was.

What Happened To Frederick Valentich?

As my first official post on Steemit (apart from my introduction) i decided to delve into a mystery that has peaked my interest for years ever since seeing a documentary about it. This true story has something for everyone, an unsolved mystery, potential paranormal elements and a missing person that has never been found.

Anyway that is enough build up, lets get right into it.

We will take a look at the mysterious disappearance of Frederick Valentich.

The Pilot Who Vanished

What Happened

Frederick Valentich was a 20 year old pilot from Australia. Who from a very young age wanted to take to the sky.

Frederick Valentich.

Fred had close to 150 hours of flying time under his belt and was permitted to fly at night if the skies were clear and visibilit

Universities degrees, it's no longer about learning.

I'm a great believer in having a well educated population, an education system that allows anyone from any background to reach their full potential. Yet when a university degree is costing a minimum £50,000 many students from poorer backgrounds are priced out of going to university.

I read an article today on how a university degree is now seen as just a stepping stone to the better paying jobs and how a record number of students are cheating the system by buying essays to get degree. Spending a few hundred pounds to get their degree is a drop in the ocean when put against the £50,000 cost of taking it. Education has become just a tool to gain entry into the better paying jobs with most of those jobs demanding a minimum of a 2:1 degree. It seems more and more students are going to university to snag a wage rather than to learn about their chosen subject while larger and larger numbers of students who want to learn are being put off by an eyewatering minimum £50k debt.
Universities have become elitist mone

When People Tell You, "That's A Pipe Dream"...

The Journey continues for me on my path. As I started to learn about Bitcoin and crypto currency, then the wonderful world of Steemit came into my life.

bitcoin11.png

It can be a bit difficult and frustrating when you try and explain something you've become passionate about. As I begin my firsts steps into explaining Bitcoin to others, you're more than likely to hear the following phrase... that's a pipe dream. It's current definition is, an illusory or fantastic plan, hope, or story. (True origins date back to the opium dens late 1800's http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/pipe-dream.html) That phrase is meant in a negative connotation as a response to what Bitcoin is.

If you really break down that definition in reference to Bitcoin though, it's actually very apt.

My whole point is this though. Necessity is the mother of invention. Bitcoin has been created. The diversity and innovation that is being deri

Finding A Second Earth Is Not A Matter Of If But When....

Greetings Steemains of earth. Nasa had an anouncement earlier and it was a beaut. The Spitzer Space Telescope (infrared) was launched from our planet in 2003. It has been dutifully observing the Universe...

spitzer.png

I always get just a bit excited when I see them suddenly announce a news conference. For me, it's that same feeling when you receive an unexpected gift and you start to wonder what it could be. Nasa held a news conference and here is what was said.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Aaa7LGE-zw

I've written about a different telescope here...https://steemit.com/science/@mithrilweed/are-we-alone-in-the-universe I like to think that these two post tie into each other nicely.

If you would like to watch the full news conference here you go.

Just like the title of the post, no more prophetic words could have been spoken. I hope you enjoyed this post. Feel free t
