The topic of my PhD dissertation was reasoning about time. I guess some itches can't be scratched enough.

You mention a tool to assist with this time shuffling.  Future Google Calendar update?  Integrated with Google Now to help remind and shuffle events as life steps in the way of our careful planning?

Wait, hold that thought, I need to search for more pictures of cats...

If +Dan Ariely  is overwhelmed what hope is there for us mortals?
 
Turns out that my type is "Overwhelmed."  Good to know, now the task is to figure out what I can do about it.

10 observations about the Sting / Paul Simon concert:

1. Really really good. People left with a smile and a sense of awe.
2. People were mostly 35-60.
3. Good chemistry between the two, though initially Paul looked at Sting often while Sting was a bit more aloof.
4. The two bands were amazing, and meshed well together.
5. Sound was, well, not great.
6. Sting's voice (and body) are as when he was 30. Paul's voice (and body, I wouldn't know) less, but still very good (well, the voice anyway). 
7. Sting performed at a consistent top level. Paul was more variable. His lows were less compelling, but his highs (Graceland, Diamonds) were the high points of the 2.5 hour concert. He connected with the crowd at a deeper emotional level.
8. Their joint Bridge over Troubled Water, with Sting starting and ending solo, was emotionally the most poignant moment.
9. Ending with an encore of The Everly Brothers with just their acoustic guitars and no band was a nice touch.
10. Did I say it was really, really good?

The English version of an important recent piece by Yuval Diskin about the critical need - for Israel - to strive to resolve the conflict with the Palestinians. Yuval is the ex-chief of Israel's General Security Service, and was featured in the acclaimed The Gatekeepers.

I tried becoming a workhorse, but it was too overwhelming.

To my logician friends in Korea - if the first one is universally quantified, and the second one existentially, is this a tautology?

A bricked-up doorway in Neve Tzedek, Tel Aviv:

"You whom I never
Identified in the street
Got a generously embroidered face
And eyes made of glittering deer
Which bake in my stomach
A kind of bread
Don't go I may not
Hold up
I am already hovering
Some where
The sea is big and covers
Two thirds of the world
Leave the door
Open."
