Losing My Ambition

Amil Niazi in The Cut:

By the time I was parenting a toddler and a newborn in lockdown, my idea of ambition had been permanently altered. I had to keep working to keep everyone fed and alive, and I realized I didn’t want or need more than that. I wasn’t willing to give up any more mental or emotional space to the idea that work itself was the pathway to something more. Work wasn’t my identity or my family; it was a means to an end.

Exercise and COVID-19 Can Be a Dangerous Combination, Evidence Shows 

Bicycling.com:

If you’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19, whether or not you have symptoms, you should not exercise for at least two weeks after receiving your positive test, Makadia says. “If you do have symptoms, you should avoid exercise for two weeks after your symptoms subside.”

Goed ziek, hierzo. Het originele plan was om nu zondag een Brevet van 200 km te fietsen. No pasaran, dus. Ergens in april terug die fiets op:

If you’ve had a mild case, then Metzl and his coauthors recommend working with your doctor and following a gradual guided activity modification plan such as the 50/30/20/10 rule developed by the National Strength and Conditioning Association and Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association Joint committee.

Putin’s Thousand-Year War

Michael Hirsh in een deep dive voor Foreign Policy:

“Russia has been repeatedly invaded. That’s something that’s very difficult for us in the United States to understand because we never faced a catastrophe of those dimensions,” [Thomas Graham, a former senior U.S. diplomat and Russia expert now at the Council on Foreign Relations] said. “It is a sense that goes back centuries: In order to survive, you need strategic depth, so you need to push borders out as far away from the heartland as possible—not so much physical as geopolitical barriers. You just push until you meet something that can resist you.”

John McPhee’s Slow Productivity

Cal Newport:

Being frantically busy in the present moment has very little to do with whether or not in the future you’ll look back at your career with pride about what you’ve accomplished.

QCovid® risk calculator

Interessant resultaat van onderzoek aan de University of Oxford:

QCovid® is a clinical decision tool intended to support conversations between clinically trained professionals and patients about COVID-19 risk.

QCovid was developed as a model to estimate a person’s risk of being hospitalised or dying due to catching coronavirus.

Ik heb blijk 0,0070% kans te hebben om in het ziekenhuis te belanden. En mocht ik ergens ooit positief testen, dan is de kans dat ik daarna zou sterven ongeveer 1 op 22,727.

The key to identifying your talents is not pride; it’s embarrassment. If you consistently find yourself embarrassed that the people around you can’t do something that is intrinsically easy, that thing is not intrinsically easy. It’s intrinsically difficult, and you have a talent for it.
