India etc

I am in a hotel in India, lobby and pool teeming with  Cricket stars of India and New Zealand who are facing off on the field nearby. Here is a colorful website of  IncredibleIndia  --- you may have seen their ads in US --- and a website of Indian govt which provides a lot of info.

From a conversation: Buddha understood the Universe. Not just our world, but the entire Universe. I imagine one who understands the Universe becomes really quiet.

A conversation triggered the following  analogy: Famous sports players (eg., Basketball) have a few opportunities when they near retirement such as becoming a coach (tell others what to do) or a TV commentator (discuss what others do). Michael Jordan --- not of Machine Learning fame --- did something new in his third act. He became  a player for Wizards, inspiring the young players by being in the court with them, and willing them to become better by his workout regime, play on the court, and his overall mental posture. I really like this model that transends mentoring from sidelines, but see very little of it.

A baking stone will help bake the crust. Put the baking stone in the oven at least fifteen minutes ahead of the pizza. We like to bake our pizzas on a dark baking pan placed on top of the hot stone.
