Leif Gram: Mr. Fix

Утром в газете - вечером в России

"Стало известно об игровой зависимости устроившего бойню российского подростка"
Ну, правильно Трамп говорил, и еще Top House Republican (не знаю, как фамилия).

Кстати, house republican - это республиканец, которого в ресторане приносят не в бутылке, а в кувшине, самый дешевый.
Leif Gram: Mr. Fix

Куда пойти учиться

Талеб: The French have a distinction mathematician vs. "matheux".
+ The mathematician (mathematicien) is like someone who composes music; doesn't have to perform, be good w/instruments. He/she just "invent" math.
+ The matheux is someone who plays an instrument; can be a virtuoso but doesn't compose music. I learned from a long career in math finance to never hire mathematicians (PhDs in math) to solve math problems or toy with actual equations. You get a better payoff with a "matheux" who studied (undergrad) electrical engineering in India, Russia, Lebanon, Brazil, etc.
