They said it couldn't be done but they did it. Incredible timing.

I understand that many people buy a house because they need the space and/or plan to have kids. But real estate shouldn't be considered a great investment, and more importantly, you're only investment.

The hard numbers: housing prices have grown at a compound annual growth rate of just 0.3 percent once one adjusts for inflation. Instead of dumping that money into down payments and mortgage payments, you could invest it in mutual funds and ETFs and get an average annual return of 6%! Not only is real estate a highly illiquid investment, homeowners make the dangerous assumption that in 20-30 years, their house will be "in style" or comparable to newer homes on the market, especially with the advent of the smart home.

If you want to make money off real estate, I recommend investing in real estate investment trusts, which are companies that buy/sell real estate and pay you dividends. You should probably invest in these companies anyway to diversify your portfolio.

Has there been any reboot of a Marvel superhero film that has actually managed to be better than its predecessor? I guess we'll just have to wait a few years for the next reboot. GIve it a few years, Disney will eventually reboot Star Wars.
Critics Consensus: Dull and downbeat, this Fantastic Four proves a woefully misguided attempt to translate a classic comic series without the humor, joy, or colorful thrills t...

Has there been a Marvel movie made by Fox that was really good? Some of them aren't bad, but none are amazing, whether a reboot or an original. I'm not sure why Fox can't quite get it right, and Marvel by itself does so well.

100s of vocalists, bassists, guitarists and drummers play Learn to Fly. Really worth watching.

What a disappointment. Too many deals to scour, too few good ones.

Wonderful insight on the rise of the on-demand economy (services like Uber, Instacart, etc.) and how it's improving our lives and creating a job market out of thin-air. 

In many ways, social class can be defined by the chores you don’t do. The rich have personal assistants, butlers, cooks, drivers. The middle class largely do their own errands — with the occasional babysitter, pizza boy, maybe a cleaner. The poor do their own chores, and the chores of other people.

Then came on-demand’s disruptive influence. The luxuries usually afforded to one-percenters now stretch to the urban upper-middle class...
In the new world of on-demand everything, you’re either pampered, isolated royalty — or you’re a 21st century servant.

A man of few words. Except when thinking.
Introduction
I am a scientist with 12 years of research experience with extensive training in the fields of molecular diagnostics, immunology, and nanomedicine.

Currently as a PhD candidate at Baylor College of Medicine, I work in a lab interested in developing groundbreaking treatments for autoimmune diseases. During my dissertation research, I have defined a new direction for my lab: using bleeding-edge carbon nanoparticles to treat rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. My efforts led to the filing of a non-provisional utility patent application. 

I believe that while basic science research is pivotal for treating diseases, the strategic advancement and commercialization of novel findings play a crucial role as well. To that end, I worked as a consultant intern for Fannin Innovation Studio, a venture capital firm and life science accelerator, to gain a complete understanding of the drug development process and learn about the business aspects of science.

Previously, I worked as an R&D scientist at Canon U.S. Life Sciences, a subsidiary of Canon, Inc. As a part of an interdisciplinary team consisting of biologists, engineers, physicists and computer scientists, we built clinical genotyping assays and transitioned them onto our in-house microfluidic platform with the goal of manufacturing a medical device that would detect genetic diseases from patient samples within minutes. I was fortunate enough to be a part of the team that conducted the first field trial of the device with collaborators across the US.

In all my professional endeavors, colleagues have known me as a dedicated problem solver—I always aim to identify the core issue, work with the most crucial information, and propose a solution in the shortest time.

I am intensely passionate about my career and its growth. Using my diverse experiences from the private sector and academia, I am always looking for opportunities to attain the maximum possible significance and impact from my knowledge and contributions.
