Murat Dalkilinç: Why Sitting is Bad for You

We traders need to sit at our trading desk for long hours. That is not good for our health. The least we can do is to take breaks from long sitting sessions and keep our sitting posture in proper form to reduce the negative impacts.

Murat Dalkilinç: The Benefits of Good Posture

A good video reminding everyone the importance of good posture.

The job hazard of trading is that we have to sit down way too much. That in turn makes us more prone to bad postures in many activities. Keeping good postures in our daily activities can be a good starting point for those who have experienced chronic fatique from trading.

Hans Rosling and Ola Rosling: How Not to be Ignorant About the World

Great video about the ignorant of the general public. The problem goes much deeper than the Roslings suggested though as people in power to make decisions for the masses are as ignorant if not worse. In my opinion, the most important thing to take away from the video for traders is to understand that the world is changing very fast. Preconceived beliefs coming from many years ago may not be applicable to the world we are living in today.

Keeping with the spirit of the video, i predict what they suggested in the video to eliminate ignorance among the majority of the people will fail spectacularly, at least for now. For majority of the people whose age right now is older than 25 years old, their ability to accept ideas that are completely contradicting their deeply hardwired beliefs in world view is very low. The real hope is a long term battle to educate the younger generations so that they do not share the same ignorance like their parents and grandparents.
