How I Make Maps

The three books I have written are all maps. They provide an overview of the terrain and provide guidance on how you might find your way. In Chapter 5 of Eat Their Lunch, I reference my friend, Ken Wilber, perhaps the greatest map-maker of all time, as his Integral Theory includes more terrain than any other map, and it is sometimes referred to as a Theory of Everything. The first time I met Ken, I asked him to advise me on map-making, and he looked at my work and helped ensure I had enough cate...

Topinambours

These are Jerusalem artichokes. Or, as I've heard them called, Jerusalem fartichokes. That is a reference to their propensity to induce digestive distress, i.e. gas. And it's true. Topinambours, in the sun. But they taste really good, so it's a worthy trade-off. The have the firm, crunchy texture of water chestnuts, and a similar flavor. They're good steamed and eaten just as they are, or made into a purée with or without the addition of potatoes. I've read they can be sliced thin and eaten in...

What's 'maters, precious?

I really need to get out with the camera. I'm reduced to taking pictures of produce. And it's not even tomato season. We try to eat seasonally much of the time, but once in a while you need a fresh tomato. Even if it doesn't have the flavor of the end-of-summer home-grown varieties. They look good. How will they taste? Ken picked up a bunch of tomatoes at the supermarket the other day. Some went into the tacos we made for lunch that day. These are the rest, slated for a salad today. As for sea...

Back from the dead

When we arrived in the house back in 2003, we found a Christmas cactus left behind by the previous owner. It wasn't in great shape, but it was alive. Over the years, Ken rooted cuttings from it so that now we have at least five cactus plants going in the house. This one was out on the deck during some of the freezing weather we had in early December. I thought it was a goner. It's looked better, but it definitely has recovered from being brown and shriveled. But we brought it indoors and water...

Several dead in extremist attack on hotel in Nairobi; al-Shabab claims role

By JOSEPH MWIHIA NAIROBI, Kenya — Extremists launched a deadly attack on a luxury hotel in Kenya’s capital Tuesday, sending people fleeing in panic as explosions and heavy gunfire reverberated through the complex. A witness said he saw five bodies at the hotel entrance alone. Al-Shabab — the Somalia-based Islamic extremist group that carried out the 2013 Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi that left 67 people dead — claimed responsibility. “It is terrible. What I have seen is terrible,” said a man w...

Nems

That's the French word for Vietnamese fried egg rolls. France has a history with Vietnam, and the exchange of food is probably one of the more significant legacies of that relationship. Aside from the war. But I digress. The ingredients, assembled, for making nems. We've made nems before, but it's been a long time. These days we find them easily in the supermarket. But I decided it would be fun to make some again, so a few months ago we got the wrappers from the Asian store. They're rice paper...

4 Key Tips For Getting Your Product Or Service To Launch (And Why Launching Reduces Startup Fear)

by Ken Burke, founder and CEO of The entrepreneurNOW! Network Entrepreneurs are, by nature, big thinkers and risk-takers. Visionary ideas and dreams of startup success are what keep us inspired. But most of us tend to counterbalance the creative instinct with second-guessing. A healthy dose of concrete reality is not only useful, but necessary. Given that 2 out of 10 startups fail in the first year and just half make it to the five-year mark, you likely recognize that the risk-taking spirit can...

California camping [4]

This will be the last installment of this mini series from October 2002. We left Death Valley and headed even further south, through the Mojave Desert and on to Salton City and Borrego Springs. We had a campsite reserved in the Anza-Borrego State Park. Again, there were very few campers around and we had a great choice of site. The rustic shade shelter and stone picnic table at our site, with the Jeep and Collette, of course. Some of the sites available included beautiful stone shelters with l...

Guide Scoping PCI DSS

Any business that accepts credit cards online for good or services rendered needs to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). PCI DSS comprises of several guidelines that merchants must comply with to protect their customers’ credit card data. However, many companies struggle with security requirements.

Vendor Risk Management-What Is It?

The integration of technology on the operations of any business has become the hallmark of success. However, this development has exposed enterprises to substantial risks thus making it necessary to invest in risk management methodologies. One of the conventional approaches is the use of risk management tools to access the chances that a third-party vendor exposes your business to. According to Ponemon 2018 study on the cost of data, third-party vendors can be highly expensive to your business i...

Risk Tolerance & Risk Appetite

Even though risk tolerance and risk appetite are used interchangeably in most cases, they are different from one another by a certain degree. With many standards and regulations focusing on the process of risk management, only a few of them define clearly the distinctions between the two terms appropriately. Nonetheless, you must know how to distinguish between risk tolerance and risk appetite to help you in developing the necessary controls for protecting data. Doing so will help you develop a ...

California camping [2]

Just a few more shots of our first day out on this trip back in 2002. The car is my 1992 Jeep Cherokee Sport. It was a great vehicle. I was commuting in it at first, but after I got the job in the city I used the subway to go back and forth to work. The car became our weekend errand and recreational vehicle. The '92 Jeep with its roof rack and "basket case." I fitted the Jeep with a roof rack for bikes, then I got an attachment for the rack called "the basket case," or something funny like tha...

Comment on crispy rice and egg bowl with ginger-scallion vinaigrette by Ken

If reheating is dangerous half of Asia would be dead by now. Last night’s rice will be fine so long as it kept cool. Off rice has a peculiar sour smell that you will be able to detect once you heat it up, it should be markedly different to its previous incarnation.

An Animated History of Cats: How Over 10,000 Years the Cat Went from Wild Predator to Sofa Sidekick

California camping [1]

Set the WABAC machine to October 2002. Ken and I took a camping trip through eastern California. We left San Francisco and headed up and over the Sierra Nevada mountains to our first destination on the eastern side, a campground near Twin Lakes. At some point, we stopped for lunch. Then, as we climbed up over the Sonora Pass, it started to snow. Not a great beginning, but it wasn't a big storm and we made it through. It started snowing as we drove over the mountains. This is a car on the road ...

Throwback Thursday

Ken found some old photos on one of his disk drives the other day. I had forgotten about them. Some were photos that I took while Ken was away from home, using one of his digital cameras. These two were taken in September of 2002. We were still living in California. I drove up to Auburn from San Francisco to see our friend Sue, and our dog Collette came with me, of course. We visited a couple of wineries near Sue's house there. Me and Collette, happy in the grass. She was a great dog! She was ...

Escargots

We had some snails lounging around in the freezer, so we decided to eat them on Tuesday. I thawed them out, put them in the snail dishes topped with garlic/parsley butter, and popped them into the oven for about ten minutes. They made a good appetizer for the day's lunch. A little messy, but that's what happens when you have butter bubbling in the oven. The main dish was a gratin de chou-fleur, cauliflower in a cheese sauce, browned in the oven. Ken found a nice cauliflower at the supermarke...

When Your Marriage & Close Relationships Veer: How to Take a You-Turn

Who hasn’t let unmet expectations with a friend or loved one go unattended until a once-revved relationship slowly stalls? All the more tempting is dodging conflict in the interest of maintaining a peaceful homelife, when the “friend or loved one” is our spouse. Which is why I’m grateful for Kimberly Miller’s real-life example of how she and her husband used a breakthrough approach that I have personally adopted to grow through conflict rather than allowing it to curb their marriage.
