10 Weekend Reading-Big Picture
The weekend is here! Pour yourself a cup of Danish blend coffee, sit down on the sofa, and get ready for our longer weekend reading:
• Secrets of the Big Family How do these families cultivate such talents from generation to generation? The obvious answer is “privilege.” This is not entirely wrong; once the first talented person makes a family rich and famous, it has a great advantage. Of course, once the actual talents of these families are exhausted, the next generation will become semi-famous fashion designers, TV celebrities, and journalists. For those who are well-connected and who are good at acting but don’t need it, this seems to be a typical job. It is amazingly bright. Sometimes they become politicians, which is another job that benefits from popularity. (Astral Codex Ten)
• A true believer in cryptocurrency issues his case from a strange economy It is difficult to separate technology from encryption culture. Because some of them are cultural technologies. NFT is both technology and culture. But what I think people lack is that encryption is more like the entire Internet than a social network. It contains many opposing people. Encryption is a complete ecosystem. (Atlantic Organization) But watch Bored apes occupy Manhattan Members of Bored Ape Yacht Club, the most popular NFT project on the Internet, play with IRL at Ape Fest in 2021. How long can the party last? (enter)
• Why California bartenders won’t stop Ken Griffin trolling at the castle The GameStop legend has given retail investors a greater debate on how trades are executed-from order flow payments to delayed arbitrage. (corporate investor)
• In praise. .. Enron? Twenty years have passed since this notoriously corrupt energy trading company went bankrupt. Maybe it’s time to admit that this is not all bad for Texas. However, twenty years later, Clemons is not the only one who is nostalgic for Enron. Interviews with nearly a dozen former employees paint an equally beautiful picture. Some people say that working there is “an amazing experience.” “A good place for young people,” another said. Despite this, their memories are still contradictory. Enron is a vibrant and energetic workplace (managed by unapologetic criminals). The company fearlessly opened up several new markets and industries (while plundering other industries). (Texas Monthly)
• Will real estate be normal again? After a decade of development too little, the pandemic reduced low stocks. Construction stopped. Sellers are afraid of bringing the virus into their homes or are unwilling to move in an uncertain period, so they are not listed. Inventories have dropped by nearly one-third from February 2020 to February 2021, relative to the decline in demand to the establishment of a national association The lowest level since. Real estate agents started recording about 40 years ago. (New York Times)
• Flying cars: what, how, when and why? Although flying car technology has existed for nearly a hundred years, these machines face an uncertain future. Current models are noisy, expensive, require heavy batteries, and pose safety and security issues for passengers and anyone along the way. Assuming that engineers can overcome technical obstacles, is there a compelling reason to develop a flying car? Are their benefits greater than the potential risks? (keel)
• The newest enemy of the Federalist Association: American EnterpriseThe most powerful legal organization in the United States has lost faith in the power of the market to impose its values ??on the country. (sound)
• Laboratory leak fiasco For more than a year, the media has fabricated the origin of the pandemic, never assessing the evidence, never apologizing, and never held accountable. China has an extraordinary influence on American business, which is self-evident, but people often forget that “American business” certainly includes national news media. The nature of this impact does not necessarily require payment of required reporting costs to reporters or news organizations. People just realize that the CCP can change the fortunes of billion-dollar companies, thousands of employees, and millions of shareholders in the United States and elsewhere when they show their teeth or continue to attack if necessary.

• American Hippo: An exhilarating and quirky epic about spies and hippos. This is a story about hippos, as advertised, but it is also a story about two very complicated and special men. These people are spies. They are also deadly enemies. Everyone wants to kill each other and fully expect to feel good about themselves afterwards. The weird situation-the situation related to hippopotamus-will bring these people together and become allies and even close friends. However, in the end, they will fall into opposition again. (Patriarch)
• The Pentagon’s $82 million Super Robot Bowl This game is a major test of the proposition that one day the robot team can help emergency personnel assess the disaster area before risking their lives. This also marks a bold step towards robot independence, because robots will have to work beyond human control to a large extent. A question was raised in a three-year competition: how long will human beings become obsolete? (Washington post)
