Dad in the Box

In 2013 a man in the UK cleaned out his junk drawer and absently tossed an old hard drive dismantled from a Dell Computer into the trash.  The hard drive, rusting in landfill somewhere in Wales, contains 7500 bitcoins.     At the time, his staggering loss was about $4 million.  But if he had wisely invested his failing hard drive in a bank safe deposit box his discarded hunk of technology would be worth over $75 million today.    Maybe he was just trying to cut his losses.  Or maybe he was ...

In a presentation he titled “Stroke Mimics,” Belt recently spoke to a ...

Nursery U

Sometimes I felt like I was living in the movie Groundhog Day, but I was always backstage at the Tony Awards. Every night the same show, with the words, “wait, can I do that one more time” coming from my daughter’s mouth as she pleaded for another do over.
