Skills Not Taught. For Making Money, Legal Solicitations, New Science violating Old Rules

It is only human to think about what is near in our future
rather than what may happen farther in our future.  We
also dream about pleasures, rather the unanticipated
trials we may face.

James Altucher provided a recent note on skills
that will help make you money, but are not taught.

Al Sklover
explains agreements you may be asked
to sign that might restrict your future employment
endeavors.

Kathleen Haughney reviewed striking discoveries about
factoids, like californium studies, that will generate
revisions to the understanding of the order of the
periodic table.

All three of these might be important in the future and
are suggested items to file away when your need arises.

MONEY MAKING
How to look at “failure” as a good thing?
How to offer things to others despite their immediate reactions
and without expecting anything in return?
How to think about your “Z plan” your long range outcome in a
perfect world?
How to better negotiate your future and conflicts you may face?
How to pursue things for the greater good:  sell ideas, accept
criticism, congratulate and thank others?

NON-COMPETE, NON-SOLICITATION AND NON-DISCLOSURE
There are an amazing number of legal entanglements that
may happen when you sign an offer letter for your desired
position.  It is something that you need to know something
about, know what to look for and have resources to deal with.
Al Sklover produced a series of definite resources that should
be required reading before you enter into legally binding

SCIENTIFIC “FACTS” CAN EVOLVE
Californium is a radioactive element whose chemical properties
were studied and reported recently.  Albrecht-Schmidt and his
team explored Cf chemistry using 5 milligrams of material.  The
Haughney article reveals how new findings can influence new
areas of research– some fundamental experimental, some applied,
some theoretical.
