Water Cooler / Domain Valuation in 2018
« on: June 22, 2018, 05:56:15 PM »
Got an e-mail about a single word, 8-letter domain. Potential buyer threw out a $$$$ offer. I declined, saying we aren't in the same ballpark. He came back with "What do you want? I might be able to go there."

Where do you guys go for research, or what methods are you seeing for domain valuation in 2018?

>calories do matter.

Definitely. I remember a podcast where the doctors were saying people who start keto need to realize they'll be eating a smaller volume of food. Fat is 9 calories/gram.

>feedback loop

Typical American diet produces lots of sugar crashes. Insulin overshoots, blood sugar dips. Body craves sugar again to restore normalcy. Repeat. Ugh.

>Looks easy in the photo

Nope! Looks like quite a physical and mental workout. Nice job.

3/3 last week. 2x weights and 1x running.

Economics & Investing / Who will buy Spotify?
« on: June 04, 2018, 06:50:36 PM »
Scott Galloway argues that the last media battleground is music. Spotify is ripe to be purchased by Apple, Amazon, Facebook or Google to cement their leadership position.

He bets Spotify doubles in value in the next 12-24 months.

>many if not most of the articles I've seen on intermittent fasting focus on the weight loss component. You may be stuck in your "informed person who actually reads" filter bubble again. It's a terrible burden ;-)


BTW I don't think fasting is a panacea. Seems like it can be a great tool, situationally, by educated patients for certain goals. The weight loss industry has discovered it. Here comes a tsunami of overgeneralizations, misrepresentations and misapplications.

Some of that article is really interesting stuff, but I think overall they're looking for the wrong results.

>any regimen involving fasting beyond 24-hours has not been proven effective in sustaining weight loss long term.

It's not supposed to be about weight loss, right? It's about autophagy, increasing insulin sensitivity, etc...

>The other obvious safety concern with fasting, whether intermittent or sustained, is its effects on medication requirements to manage diabetes .... medication requirements for adequate blood glucose control are dramatically reduced in just the first day or two of fasting or carbohydrate restriction

>Similarly, blood pressure is often markedly reduced in just the first few days of fasting

One doctor's concern is another doctor's desired outcome?

>significant increases in depression

I too would be depressed if forced to lose 25% of my body mass in 24 weeks while eating war rations of bread and potatoes "designed to induce the same level of nutritional stress for each participant."

I wonder if a CR study with goal of improving blood bio-markers, coupled with a nutrition-packed diet of fresh veggies / fruit / proteins and healthy fats would produce significantly fewer psychological side effects.

Most Americans would benefit from some caloric restriction.
