The Sunday Best (1/27/2019)
The Sunday Best is a collection of articles I’ve curated for your reading pleasure.
Presenting, this week’s Sunday Best:
The Physician Philosopher has been a busy man. He wrote a book which will be published eight days from today and is up to 15 physician finance interviews. I’m particularly partial to his latest one: Physician Finance Interview #15: Physician on Fire
I’ve been busy, too, recording several podcasts in recent weeks. In this convo with Ryan Inman (a Recommended Financial Advisor) of the Financial Residency Podcast, we talk fatFIRE. He asks, What Does fatFIRE Mean and Why Do You Need to Know About It?

I’m wrapping up a busy 7-day stretch at work and I’ve got a week off before the next one. Fortunately, this will be my last winter holding down a job that is location-dependent. I’m proud to be a Minnesotan, but when this is the weather on your week off, it’s easy to second guess why we choose to live here.
Yes, those are actual air temperatures, not wind chills. Yes, those are highs of 14 below zero. Yes, in Farenheit. It will be even colder an hour or two north of here.
No, curling will not be canceled. School might be for a day or two, though.
Another perk, as the only anesthesiologist in town on call this weekend, is that really cold ice isn’t nearly as slippery. 31-degree surface ice melts with just a little bit of friction (that’s the magic behind sweeping with a curling broom to speed up your rock), but subzero ice is practically sticky.
If we take care of any orthopedic injuries this weekend, they’ll probably be related to the high ABV some of our fishermen and women as they attempt to warm up from the inside out. Best of luck to everyone who is braving the cold out there!
In the future, I expect we’ll find a warmer climate to ride out the chilliest parts of the year. Many of us northerners grew up with grandparents who flew south for a few months of the year.
