While it may seem that the laws of etiquette only apply to dinner parties and theater outings, a certain decorum should prevail even in a public restroom. Today we illuminate the unspoken (and too often unfollowed) code of conduct for using the bathroom like a gentleman.

How do we make decisions in complex environments? Can we trust our gut? How do we gain insights? In today’s podcast I talk to Dr. Gary Klein to get some answers to these questions. Dr. Klein pioneered the field of naturalistic decision-making and is an expert on the science of insights. Show Highlights What “naturalistic decision-making” is and how it differs from what we typically think of as decision-making Why our gut instinct or intuition isn’t as irrational as we think The biggest my
Listen to wise Atticus: give seersucker a chance.
Seersucker suits don’t get a lot of love these days.
A Missouri state legislator proposed a ban on anyone over the age of eight wearing one, because, he scribbled in a handwritten amendment, “adults look ridiculous in seersucker suits.”
The Republican National Committee’s “Comms College” — a training course for the GOP’s young communication staffers — recently instructed its students not to wear seersucker suits on tele

Finally, nothing tastes better or feels mor
At the turn of the twentieth century, a Scottish-born steel tycoon named Andrew Carnegie became the world’s second richest man.
He was 66 years old in 1901 when he retired, and he believed people with means were morally obligated to do good with their money.
Over the next ten years, Carnegie focused on large-scale philanthropy. He funded scientific and medical research. He established pension funds for teachers and professors. He built more than 3,000 public libraries and gave
“The Joy of Doing” From Undiscovered Country, 1946 By Raymond John Baughan
The secret of happiness is in knowing this: that we live by the law of expenditure. We find greatest joy, not in getting, but in expressing what we are. There are tides in the ocean of life, and what comes in depends on what goes out. The currents flow inward only where there is an outlet. Nature does not give to those who will not spend; her gifts are loaned to those who will use them. E
