The Most Successful People Are The Ones Youve Never Heard Of (And Why They Want It That Way)

Ryan Holiday Updated May 7, 2019 By Diego PH The vast majority of successful people who ever lived are people you’ve never heard of. If we are to drill down further and consider happy successful people, it’s almost certain that we haven’t heard of them. The reason for that is something called the survivorship bias. Only a very small number of stories and identities make their way into the history books or into legend, and by definition, those that sought fame and fortune beyond what any human could possibly enjoy, are often overrepresented among them. Even my own writing is guilty of this. I tell stories about Rockefeller and Grant and Alexander the Great. I don’t talk about the people …

The View Confronts Crenshaw for Defending Trump on Charlottesville: Why Do You Apologize for Him?!

Appearing on The View on Monday, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) was challenged by hosts Sunny Hostin when he claimed that President Trump never referred to white nationalists or neo-Nazis as very fine people during his response to the deadly 2017 Charlottesville rally.

Crenshaw, in case you forgot, helped spark conservative outrage against Omar last month, he attacked her for out-of-context remarks about 9/11. Meghan McCain asked Crenshaw why he felt Democrats were reluctant to call [Omar] out, prompting the GOP congressman to reply that it was because were playing a team sport today. We just had a …

This Fish Has Adapted To Lethal Levels Of Water Pollution By Making Hybrid Babies

The Gulf killifish (Fundulus grandis) might sound like the name of a ferocious marine predator, but lethal levels of pollution on its home turf has put its very survival under threat. And yet, in an extraordinary tale (should that be tail?) of adaption and hybridization, one population of fish has evolved to exist in the dirty waters of the Houston Ship Channel thanks to genes acquired from its relative, the Atlantic killifish. This is the finding of a study recently published in the journal Science.  Despite measuring just 18 centimeters (7 inches) head-to-tail, the Gulf killifish is one of the largest of its kind. It can be found in coastal estuaries running along the northern Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic coast, where it serves as a …

This old Donald Trump income tax tweet isn’t aging well

A tweet sent by now-President Donald Trump in 2012 pointing out that many Americans don’t pay their income tax resurfaced after a New York Times report published on Tuesday.

They continued to lose money every year, totaling $1.17 billion in losses for the decade.

Lucas Moura: from So Paulo prodigy and PSG outcast to Tottenham hero | David Hytner

The Brazilian took time to settle at Spurs and may not have faced Ajax but for injuries yet his hat-trick showed his talent Lucas Moura put the earphones in and looked down at the iPad screen, the peak of his dark NYC cap obscuring his eyes. It was late on Wednesday night and the Tottenham forward, whose sensational second-half hat-trick had set up a final against Liverpool on 1 June the first time that the club have reached the showpiece. The commentary built to its classically Brazilian climax and when the man behind the microphone boomed out Mouras name, the man himself lifted his head and chuckled.

It really is Lionels world now: Messi has remade football in his own image | Barney Ronay

From Under-9s in parks to Pep Guardiolas champions no one person has had such a vast impact on a major sports footprint as Barcelonas superstar Lionel Messi There was some consolation this week for anyone feeling a little maxed-out by the relentless individual brilliance of Lionel Messi. We have at least found something he isnt good at on a football pitch. It turns out Messi isnt very good at punching Fabinho in the head. Frankly, more of the same from Messi against Liverpool. Unclosing like a hand, he gives forever. I make no apology for writing about him again here. Firstly, because Messis talent is endlessly divisible. You never get to the bottom of it. It is always surprising. And …

Only two women have competed in F1 in its 69-year history. The radical W Series, which begins this weekend at Hockenheim, is hoping to change that and inspire a new generation Ninety years ago Eliska Junkova the queen of the steering wheel as she was known lit up motor racing.
