How to Remember What You Read November 1, 2017
How to become an active reader By Shane Parrish
"One who does not read has no advantage over the one who cannot read"
“I cannot remember the books I have read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.”
Why is it that some people seem to be able to read a book once and remember every detail of it for life, while others struggle to recall even the title a few days after putting down a book?
The answer is simple but not easy.
What Does a Legacy Look Like? November 16, 2017
What is your legacy? Not sure? Here is an example of a real legacy

What Does a Legacy Look Like?
What will your legacy will be? The word legacy gets thrown around a lot. Almost so much that I wonder if the meaning has become diluted, an abstract good idea to think about in the future. Or, something so intangible, because it is supposed to be so great and moving (like the naming of a bridge, library, or hospital) that it seems worthless to pursue at a more individual level. But I think it is more than that.
I believe that it is real and tangible and personal. After interviewing more than 40 people who have left legacies, I’ve learned that legacies come in many different forms. Some of the less obvious legacies, the ones that just seem to come through a natural form of giving, are the most impactful and long lasting.
TNT Update for Friday November 17, 2017
Iraq's prime minister is congratulating his forces on retaking the last Iraqi town that was held by the Islamic State group.
Haider al-Abadi says in a statement released on Friday afternoon that Iraqi forces liberated Rawah in record time and are continuing operations to retake control of Iraq's western desert and the border area with Syria.
The announcement came just moments after Iraq's Defense Ministry announced that Rawah — located 175 miles (275 kilometers) northwest of Baghdad — had been retaken from ISIS. The ministry said the assault on the town began at dawn and was complete within hours. Here we go!!!!!!!
[JESTER] HELLO AND HAPPY THURSDAY EVERYONE…
[mentoredlife] Hi Jester, just reading up on the sealed indictments. Seems the number keeps climbing. Up over 1100 now.
[JESTER] mentoredlife YES THAT SEEMS TO BE THE CASE... I THINK IT IS A MATTER OF SOMEONE CHECKING EACH DISTRICT ONE AT A TIME AND FINDING THEM...
[mentoredlife] Jester, could this be the beginning of "draining the swamp"? I know you don't really have a way of knowing what's in there. Just a speculation.
[JESTER] mentoredlife IT IS HARD TO SAY.... IT IS A START OF GETTING A HANDLE OF CONTROL OVER THE ELITES I WOULD SAY... WHAT IS HARD TO SAY IS IF THEY WILL ACTUALLY USE IT... OR IF THE THREAT OF USING IT WILL WORK JUST AS GOOD OR BETTER....
