Heard Something, Read Something, Saw Something [#5]

This is the fifth post in a new series I'm calling Heard Something, Read Something, Saw Something. I'll post these periodically whenever I can fill up three slots — one for something interesting I recently listened to, one for something I read that I liked, and one for something I saw that caught my eye. Hope you enjoy these.

Heard Something
I've always enjoyed listening to Mark Cuban interviews. He's freewheeling, opinionated, optimistic, future-focused, and doesn't hold back. He's just not worried, and I like listening to those kind of people, no matter what they have to say. In this episode of Honestly, Bari Weiss asks Mark about taxes, China, crypto, capitalism, and a whole lot more. It's a fun one.

Read Something
Can a single cell remember? Does it have a mind? Does it need one? Single cells obviously have no brains or neurons, so what accounts for their memory-like abilities? So much of this article is over my head, but I don't mind — there's enough to glean to make me wonder.

Saw Something
I love a clever ad — especially in the traditional big photo atop a pithy headline format. And when a friend sent me this one, it gave me a good chuckle. I thought you might like it too.


Until next time.
