But I’ve learned 10x more about investing from listening to podcasts than I did in school
Here are 24 podcasts that I regularly listen to that will make you a better investor⬇️
1/ Acquired -- @AcquiredFM
This podcast "tells the stories of great companies"
Ben Gilbert & David Rosenthal do a great job of talking through acquisitions & have a stellar list of guests
2/ Animal Spirits
@awealthofcs & @michaelbatnick break down financial news, share insights that they are thinking about, and recommend TV shows & movies
3/ The Business Brew
@BillBrewsterSCG does long-form, in-depth, discussions about capital allocation and the psychology of investing/business
4/ Capital Allocators
@tseides has an amazing series of guests that discuss all facets of investing
His recent book -- Capital Allocators -- takes all of the top learners from his interviews and condenses them into a book
2/ A. Try to understand something of the origin of the idea or thought since all ideas have a history. Where does it come from? What journey did it take to get here? Even if the answer is approximate, a sense of the idea's past is better than assuming it emerged out of thin air.
3/ B. Look at the implications of the idea. Ideas, as Richard Weaver says, have consequences. All thoughts lead to other thoughts, and may end up with specific concrete expressions in the world, too. What does that idea imply? What could it lead to if taken (too) seriously?
4/ C. Try to understand what sort of support or foundation might sustain the idea. This amounts to trying to see the idea in the best light. What research supports it? What arguments have been made? What wisdom has been tested regarding the idea?
5/ D. Look at objections to the idea. Look for (possible) negatives and missed nuances. Is the foundation flimsy? What does it fail to account for? What criticisms can be or have been made of the idea?
It's believed that Sage Agastya wanted to build a temple for Venkateswara here.
But the Idol couldn't be installed as its toenail was broken.Agastya got upset&performed Tapaa. Shiva appeared to him&told him dat site is suitable for a Shiva temple as the region resembled Kailasha. Rishi then requested Shiva to grant him combined Idol of Shiva&Mata Parvati.
Bhagwan Shiv gifted him the Idol as he wished.
Yaganti Temple is one of the most famous temples of Shiva in Andhra Pradesh.Temple dates back to 5th-6th centuries with the contributions from the Kingdoms of Pallavas, Cholas, Chalukyas.
However, some of the major and valuable contributions came from Vijaynagara Kings Harihara and Bukka Raya who completed the construction of quite a lot of structures in and around the temple during the 15th century.
Main idols in the temple are of Shiva, Parvati and Nandi.
Size of Nandi sitting in front of the temple is believed to be growing continuously due to which the temple staff had to remove one pillar.
Temple has caves in &around the vicinity named on Rishi Agastya and Bhagwan Venkateswara.
The temple has a small Pushkarini in the premises.

Sri Devi Karumariamman mandir is in Thiruverkadu, a suburb of Chennai. It is said that God Muruga came here and obtained the 'Vel' (spear) from His mother, Goddess Karumari (an avatar of Parvathi) 1/n
to fight the demon Suran and hence this place was called as 'Vel kadu' and became as Verkadu. As per legend Devi Karumariamman once disguised as a soothsayer visited Bhagwan Surya, the Sun God, to predict His future. 2/n
Not realising that the soothsayer is none other than Sakthi Matha, Surya ignored Her. Angered by his indifference, Devi Karumariamman immediately retreated. Bhagwan Surya lost His glory and the earth plunged into darkness. 3/n
Bhagwan Surya then realised His folly and pleaded forgiveness from Devi Karumariamman. In order to pacify mother Karumariamman, Suryadev said that His rays would fall on Her directly twice in a year and touch her feet. (in the month of Panguni (March- April) & during (Sep - Oct)
Mother Karumari Amman is worshipped here in two forms.A swayambu (self manifested) with only head visible above the ground and another one in a graceful sitting posture with all Parasakthi features,with four arms holding skull, sword, trishul, udukkai (damru). 5/n
SSB Scam: Here are the evidences to show as to the involvement of senior officers in this Scam since so many years. The concerned GTO wrote to the Comdt pointing out the illegality and favouritism. Comdt didn't do anything since it was the case of the son of DG Recruiting.
Having failed to get any positive response from the Comdt, Selection Centre, the GTO then wrote to the then COAS, Gen Dalbir Singh bringing out the impropriety on the part of all concerned including the DG Recruiting whose own son was being favoured for TA Entry.
The COAS responded through his AG who assured that necessary corrective actions were being taken but he didn't stop the entry of the son of the DG Recruiting who was getting favoured. The AG offered to meet the GTO at Allahabad & then met him also the very next day there.
Astonished to see the award of PVSM to the said DG Recruiting inspite of a clear cut charge of fraud against him, the GTO again wrote to the COAS questioning the award of PVSM. However, neither any reply was ever received nor the illegal entrant was stopped from joining TA..
The GTO didn't stop here. He then sent an email to the new COAS, Gen Bipin Rawat (now CDS) about it.The result,the GTO was threatened. Fed up with continuous attempts of the senior officers to hush up the matter, the GTO resigned & his resignation was accepted within no time.
ज्योतिष में बुध ग्रह को बुद्धि ज्ञान, तर्क, त्वचा व वाणी का कारक माना गया है। कुंडली मे बुध की लाभकारी स्थिति जातक को बुद्धिमान, तार्किक, गणित और अकाउंट्स पर प्रभाव, ज्योतिष में रुचि, वाक्पटु बनाता है।
काव्य संगीत में रुचि, भाषणों/बोली के द्वारा प्रभाव डालने वाला , हँसमुख, कल्पनाशील, लेखनमे रुचि लेने वाला, व्यंगप्रेमी और हाजिरजवाब बनाता है।
ये सेल्स/मार्केटिंग के क्षेत्र में अग्रणी बनाता है।
वहीं बुध के नकारात्मक प्रभाव व्यक्ति को संकोची, बोलने में तुतलाना/हकलाना, सूंघने की क्षमता पर प्रभाव, व्यापार/कार्यक्षेत्र में हानि और दांतों से सम्बंधित समस्याएं देता है।
अलग अलग भाव मे बुध का प्रभाव अलग ही होता है साथ ही दृष्टि संबंध और युति के भी परिणाम बदल जाते हैं।
द्वितीय भाव मे ये बेबी फेस, चेहरे पर लावण्य और व्यक्ति को उसकी आयु से कम दिखाता है।
वैसे तो बुद्ध ग्रह का फ़लित व उपचार हर कुंडली के अनुसार अलग अलग होगा पर यहां कुछ ऐसे उपाय लिख रही हूँ जो सभी कर सकते हैं।
बुधवार को गाय को अंकुरित मूँग खिलाएँ।
बुध की दान सामग्री दान करें।
किन्नरों को हरे कपड़े और चूड़ियाँ दें।
छोटी कन्याओं का पूजन कर उन्हें हरे कपड़े/चूड़ियाँ और मिठाइयां देकर दक्षिणा दें।
माँ दुर्गा की आराधना करें
बहन बुआ बेटियों का सम्मान करें।
बहन को नाक का आभूषण(नाक की लौंग) दें।
तुलसी की सेवा करें सूखने पर तुरंत दूसरी लगा दें।

Here are 50 ideas that shape my worldview.
These are my guiding principles and the light of my intellectual life. All of them will help you think better, and I hope they inspire curiosity.
The day you became a clearer thinker, you:— Shreyas Doshi (@shreyas) October 12, 2020
-started by identifying the real goal
-decomposed vague concepts
-framed the right questions
-sought more data or experience
-listened to multiple perspectives
-assessed upsides & downsides
-examined your own biases
-acted like an owner
I've taught thousands of people make smart decisions without getting lucky.— Shane Parrish (@ShaneAParrish) February 2, 2021
Here is a thread on 5 of the biggest reasons we fail to make effective decisions.
Vedas are considered apauruSEyam, not made by humans, and therefore cannot be interpreted in any manner. The vEdanta sUtra bASyam has been done by Sri Adi Sankara, Swami Ramanuja and Sri Madhwa 1
On the other hand, itihAsAs and purunAs are made by riSis, but the greatness is that they wrote without diluting the meaning of vEdAs (or Upanishads).
There is lot in them that are dependent on bhakti, which is subjected to bhAvam (or experience). AcAryAs have relished these 2
experiences in Srimad Ramayanam, and one such instance is in Sundara Kandam where thAyAr greets rAvanA when she visits her and places a grass between her and him. She also smiles at his arrogance
The slokA is
तृणमन्तरतः कृत्वा प्रत्युवाच शुचिस्मिता
There are bursts of bhAvam for one such slokA.
1) Thayar is used to wearing a veil (gOSA niyamanam) and, hence placed a grass between them.
2) When a person comes to see another person in their place, it’s customary to offer them a seat. As she does not have one, she places
3) She’s insinuating that the strength and the valour he displayed is equivalent to that of a grass, meaning nothing.
4) The wealth or the grandeur he displayed pales into insignificance as She was Mahalakshmi, who is the abode of all the wealth in the universe.
It's appalling that anyone could entertain the notion that this sociopathic college dropout, this scheming mega-billionaire monopolist, has the right to interfere with sunlight, which belongs to all of us equally.

Bhaktha Anjaneya temple at Nanganallur in Chennai is one among tallest Anjaneyar Vigraham. Here Anjaneyar blesses with relief to all illness. Vigraham is about 32 feet height made of single stone.
Anjaneyar here is 👇
Sri Vishwaroopa Aadhivyathihara Baktha Anjaneya Swamy.
Sthala Puranam says that, this is the place where Indra Deva hit Hanuman on the cheek by his Vajrastram. Sri Raghavendra Swami and Sri Kanchi Paramacharyar were behind in building this temple. Temple is constructed to
Realize power of Anjaneyar who is seen both in Ramayana and Mahabharatha.
Vadamalai is important offering to Anjaneyar here. It is believed that vigraham contain powers to heal any disease. Shri Ramanavami is celebrated here.
Jai Sri Ram
The power of Gayatri Mantra:
Those who left Gayathri japam for three generations cease to be Brahmins. Then the street where they live cannot be an agraharam.Same way if yagnas were not performed for three generations they are dhur brahmins, 1/5
de generated brahmins . Though degenerated still the label of Brahmin sticks to them. There are prayaschithams available to regain the status of Brahmin. But if Gayatri japam is given up by three generations then he completely looses the status of Brahmin. He again cannot 2/5
become a Brahmin .He is just a Brahmana Bandhu. That is having Brahmins as relatives .Same way Kshatriya gives up Gayathri japam he becomes Kshatriya _Bandhu.Vysyas becomes Vysya Bandhu.Hence the spark of Gayatri must be developed into a fire .Even though spark by itself 3/5
may not serve any purpose but it has a potential to become big and being useful. Hence at least on Sunday people should chant Gayatri thousand times .Should not eat unclean food at unclean places .Should do prayaschitham for the lapses did so far. Hence forth must take 4/5
care by not taking unclean food and ensure that their body is kept cleaned to retain the power of Mantras.5/5
- $7.4 billion in 2020 revenue
- 43% energy drink market
- Makes nothing
Nope, not even the drinks they sell. Instead, they focus 100% on marketing.
Here's what's going on
Before Red Bull there was Krating Daeng (KD).
Founded by pharmaceutical entrepreneur, Chaleo Yoovidhya, KD was created to serve Thailand's country's working class.
Yoovidhya chose the gaur, a member of the bovine family from the region, as the brand's symbol.
Dietrich Mateschitz was a toothpaste marketer. On a business trip to Thailand he discovered KD and fell in love with the drink.
With Yoovidhya, he decided to bring it to Europe. He made changes:
- Name became "Red Bull"
- Added bubbles
- Used a thin can
- Targeted elites
The deal Mateschitz and Yoovidhya struck outsourced production of the drink to the Thai entrepreneur's pharmaceutical company.
That fundamental structure has remained in place today: Red Bull outsources production and focuses on distribution (marketing).
Mateschitz noticed the rise of extreme sports starting in the 1990s. He thought Red Bull should be a part of it.
The years since have seen the company amass an insane empire across sports, media, and apparel.

A thread on thinking more clearly:
This thread is about mental models.
Yes, Twitter has enough of these.
BUT, people never answer the question:
How do I use mental models for everyday decisions? How do I put them into practice?
Mental models are frameworks for thinking.
They simplify complex situations so you can reason through them easily.
They help you make good, long-term decisions without needing to know everything about a situation.
Your hunter-gatherer brain is not wired to use the best model for every decision.
However, in every generation, a few humans manage to rewire their biology:
They force themselves to think in models constantly.
Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos appear to be two of those people. They're on record about this.
Gudimallam is a small village located in Chittoor district. It is seven miles away from Tirupati. This small village came to significance,due to it's very beautiful Shiva Mandir with history of thousands of years. 1/n
The main importance of the mandir lies in the Linga which is housed in the Garbhagriha of the temple & considered as the only one of such type. It is the earliest Linga discovered so far and it has been assigned to the 3rd century BCE.(Satavahana period) 2/n

Mr. Lieber and his partners were working on exactly this type of technology and received substantial funding from the Department of Defense and many of its agencies. Mr. Lieber and his colleagues were awarded a number of patents, but the most important one appears to be a 2015
patent award called “Systems and Methods for [nano-scale] Injectable Devices.” The idea of the 2015 patent was to inject a nano-scale matrix into the brain and creating a brain interface that could be linked to machines.

1. Whenever you see a stock in strong uptrend it will tend to take support on its 21 ema.
2. Always look whether the stock has taken support previously.
@kuttrapali @rohanshah619 @chartmojo @chartworldat
#adaniports #balajiamine #jswsteel
3. 21 ema will act as dynamic support in a trending market
4. Risk: Reward is favourable in such setups
5. 50 ema can also act as support which can be kept as stoploss for swing trading
6. Volume should be less during pullbacks .

Now that Pakistan is suddenly in News and Indians are very Angry at the moment in anticipation that government would go soft on Paxtan, I'd like to share a sad but sensational story from the past.
Balwantrai Mehta, at that time was the chief minister of the Indian state of Gujarat. He was killed in an attack by Pakistan Air force, along with his wife, three members of his staff, a journalist and two crew members.
It was September of 1965. India was at war with Pakistan. Although the biggest impact was in Kashmir, the situation along the entire western border was very tensed. Both sides were facing daily casualties. The air force was on high alert on both sides.
CM Mehta flew in a Beechcraft commuter aircraft from Tata Chemicals, Mithapur to the Kutch border. The plane was piloted by Jahangir Engineer, a former Indian Air Force pilot. It was shot down by Pakistan Air Force pilot Qais Hussain, who assumed it 2 be a reconnaissance mission.
Qais Hussain, a PAF flying ofcr during the 1965 war, was the pilot who fired on the civilian aircraft under orders from his superiors. Hussain, then just 25 yrs of age, entered into the Indian airspace at 20,000 ft. It descended to 3,000 ft at which the Indian chopper was flying.
