Homework Due Friday, September 29, 2017

The main assignment comes in three parts. Notice that they are not in chronological order as the reference is to a WSJ article that is pay-wall protected. Hence, we begin with the reposting of the original article. Follow that with the initial post about the article, which has additional information. Finally, read the post on the response.

Come prepared to make some online forecasts–we will submit The Infinity Institute’s (TII)¬†wisdom and await the Universe’s confirmation.

See you Friday!

P.S.,

  2. Here is a link to the Barbell Logic podcast where Matt Reynolds and Scott Hambrick explain (hopefully better than I did) the benefits of wearing a belt for weightlifting. There is a super brief discussion of the episode’s whiskey starting at 00:35, lasting about a minute. The belt discussion starts at 19:28. They get into the explanation of why a belt is useful at 25:00.
