What Else Is Going On? With Taria S. Faison

We talked about her being on the front lines fighting this pandemic, the precautions she has to take to ensure the safety of her household, and the special bonds she has created with her patients (turns out Bravo is a unifier.) We also get into housewives. Ashley shares who she would have in a housewives house, when she passed her nursing test and the housewife greats she joined in the field and we plan our trip to Dallas to see Dr. Tiffany Moon (Ashley will make sure I have full PPE gear for our plane ride.)Talking to Ashley was so much!

TGL049: The Hot Hand with Ben Cohen

The Good Life - The Investor's Podcast Network

Our topic this week is the mystery and science behind streaks. Ben Cohen covers the NBA for the Wall Street Journal and is the author of “The Hot Hand: The Mystery & Science of Streaks.” We discuss the phenomena of the “hot hand” in basketball and a famous paper from the 1980s that claims the hot hand doesn’t exist. We also explore how the hot hand relates to Shakespeare’s plays, Rob Reiner’s movies, picking stocks, betting at the roulette table and even farming. We often see patterns where there are none, so it’s important to determine when a streak is just random or an indication that something really has fundamentally changed. Ben Cohen helps us sort it all out, and we learn valuable lessons we can apply to make better decisions and maybe, just maybe, create the conditions to experience the “hot hand” in our own lives and careers.What You’ll Learn:·     How Steph Curry’s big night changed the NBA and how we think about streaks·     What research tells us about the “hot hand” in basketball·     Why Shakespeare and Einstein did get the hot hand in their creative work·     What is the “gambling fallacy” and how it relates to the “hot hand”·     Why most people bet against the “hot hand” at the roulette table·     How our understanding of streaks can make us better decision makersResourcesThe Hot Hand: The Mystery and Science of Streaks by Ben CohenConnect with Ben CohenTwitter: @bzcohenWebsite: https://www.bzcohen.com/Connect with Sean MurrayEmail: seanm@realtimeperformance.comTwitter: @seanpmurray111LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/seanpmurray/Website: www.seanpmurray.netNewsletter: https://www.realtimeperformance.com/newsletter/
