Compound interest

with 13 comments

In 1944, the fifty-one-year-old IRS estate auditor Anne Scheiber left the organization that rewarded her for twenty-three years of distinguished service by never promoting her. Then she invested her savings of $5,000 in the stock market. Living frugally and studying companies, she continually reinvested her dividends. Her portfolio continued to grow until she died in 1995 at age 101. When her lawyer, Ben Clark, tried to meet with officials of Yeshiva University to tell them about a bequest she had left to the school, they had never heard of Anne Scheiber and wondered how to avoid wasting their time. But when the meeting was finally held, they learned that Ms. Scheiber was leaving them $22 million for the benefit of women students.
​The population of the world increased from 2.5 billion in 1930 to 7.3 billion in 2015, a growth rate of about 1 percent a year. It’s expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050. Everyone knows that this can’t keep up; the carrying capacity of the earth—the amount of humanity the earth can support as limited by the available solar energy for food, and by other scarce resources—has been estimated as up to one hundred billion people. But what if we could somehow keep growing at, say, a rate of 1 percent a century? A calculation shows that in 1.2 million years we would be a solid sphere of flesh with a radius almost as large as that of our galaxy, expanding at the speed of light!

4 cents on the Dollar

with one comment

We are told to find a dollar hidden somewhere for 50 cents. US President who invested 1.2 Billion dollars on the hotel is sold for 50 Million $, that’s 4 cents on the dollar. There are many ways to make money despite losses, ask Snapchat CEO and Trump. (Hint: Find neo rich in every generation, dazzle by presentations and slimy spiel).

Healthy shortcuts

with 16 comments

I love shortcuts, we all do. Don’t the stock market investors want that one stock that could be a 100 bagger, don’t aspiring students of Yoga want that one technique that could make them experience Cosmic consciousness.

Over the past few years I have learnt a couple of short cuts to stay healthy. I don’t, can’t or won’t, whichever way you put it, like to jog for hours, or go to the Gym, so to get the maximum bang for your time two exercizes are key to staying healthy over long term a) heart rate up for about 10 minutes plus and b) a flexible spine another 10 minutes.

Google or Youtube search ‘flexible spine exercises’

https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-11552/10-minute-yoga-sequence-for-a-strong-flexible-spine.html

I have correlated this from more than one source, in the ancient scriptures and latest medical research both hint at the flexible spine being the key to long term health, and helps fight chronic conditions. While the modern science gets busy searching for the subtler body of man, if how and where it is and whether it is, and then write tomes on whether back exercize can indeed help prevent arthritis, diabetes etc. I suggest you get on with it 10 minutes a day while the results await us over the next decades.

That’s it. That will give you maximum longevity (and keep diseases away) per time spent! It won’t give you rippling muscles but keep you away from GPs.

Another healthy tip I have learnt is to avoid drinking water 30 minutes on each side of meal as per Ayurveda, it interferes and dilutes digestive juices.

Do share your healthy shortcuts.

Jobs renaissance

Made me laugh at 1:05, people recognize themselves so much with their jobs, that even Jesus’ father was called Joseph the Carpenter. Similarly in India Krishna’s has been described as Cowherd by profession. People are defined by what they do. The funny aspect is that people take their jobs and themselves too seriously 🙂
