How to win in the Amazon marketplace
"""
Sure! We operate in the toys and games space, but regardless of the space I'd follow the same process: 1) Locate a mid-popularity product with a ranking of < 4.3 stars and what appears to be profitable margins 2) Look over the neutral and negative reviews looking for improvement suggestions and complaints customers have 3) Figure out an improvement or a way to fix the issues

If you have a superior product, the rest will take care of itself.

You miss being abroad.
You miss the celebrity status of being an “American” overseas — at home, you don’t stand out as much.
You miss the “royal” treatment, lifestyle and social status you may have enjoyed abroad.
You miss the tight-knit foreign affairs community you were a part of.

The Trouble with Teaching Rape Law - The New Yorker
"""
When I teach rape law, I don’t dwell on cases in which everyone will agree that the defendant is guilty. Instead, I focus on cases that test the limits of the rules, and that fall near the rapidly shifting line separating criminal conduct from legal sex. These cases involve people who previously knew each other and who perhaps even previously had sex. They cover situations in which the meaning of each party’s actions, signals, and desires may have been ambiguous to the other, or misapprehended by one or both sides.

About the PPK talk and tweet | Holovaty.com
"""
Take, for example, the Django ORM. I think developers ought to have an understanding of SQL — the advantages, the limitations, the dos and don’ts — before they jump into using an ORM. That doesn’t mean everybody needs to write their own ORM, or always use raw SQL (two strawman arguments people have been making repeatedly in response to this tweet) — it just means they should have a basic understanding of what’s happening. Not enough to be a DBA, just enough to not make poor decisions.

Sacha Baron Cohen: What I've Learned
"""Originally, Borat was a disaster. I was depressed, the original director left and the studio gave us two weeks to replace him, or they'd shut it down. So, anyway, I went to Garry Shandling's house — he had this basketball game on Sundays for comedians — and when I went up for a basket, I landed on his foot and rolled my ankle. I tore two ligaments. But because of that, the insurance paid for a three-month hiatus and I managed to call Peter Baynham, who had worked with Coogan on Partridge, and together we re-wrote the movie. So really, Shandling's foot saved Borat. """
