Neurosurgeons required to have proficiency in outside interest?

In When Breath Becomes Air, the author mentions that the field of neurosurgery is unique in that it requires students to become proficient at something other than neurosurgery. He said people often choose writing or research since they complement the field. But is this really a thing? Are students actually required to do this to become a neurosurgeon? I am having a hard time Googling this.

Charity auctions near Boston

I have been volunteered to be the auctioneer at a charity event. The auction part of the event is low-key enough that I think it will be ok that I am not a professional. But I also think it might be a good idea to scope out some other charity fundraisers and auctions to get some tips. [more inside]

Has anyone had experience with Addressable Advertising?

A colleague of mine was telling me that he spends $40/month with AT&T Adworks and says that it brings in a steady client stream for his resume-writing business. I'm curious if other solopreneurs/small businesses have had a similar experience with AT&T Adworks, Comcast Spotlight, DirectTV, etc.

Taylor Negron "Oratorical Contest" Sketch?

Does anybody remember a Taylor Negron sketch in which he reminisces about an oratorical contest he entered as a child. It was a produced piece that I'm pretty sure aired on Michael Nesmith's TV series, "Television Parts," that aired on NBC in the summer of 1985. . [more inside]

Find immigration/terror attack commentary video clip.

I can't find a video clip I saw re: immigration/terror attacks/syrian refugees/something similar where a man (Senator? Governor? former General?) was commenting somewhere along these lines: Nobody said holding our values would be easy. Nobody said doing the right thing would be easy, or completely safe. People might need to endanger themselves or even die to do what we consider to be the right thing. Help me find this video clip please. [more inside]

Looking for a comic about Maslow's Hierarchy.

I'm looking for a thing I once read. It was a comic or other illustrated story on the internet in the mid-2000s. It starred a girl (I think) who was exploring a strange, largely empty world. Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs was a motif throughout; it might have been intended as a teaching tool. I remember there being a city, and a train. It might have been colored with colored pencils. The Hierarchy appeared in the illustrations as it was being explained, perhaps with one layer of the pyramid highlighted, or others grayed out.
