Kanji tutor/Near future must read/Where goes?



May 28 · Issue #45 · View online
A weekly newsletter that gives you 6 brief personal recommendations of cool stuff. Check out our new 2018 Recomendo book:

🉐 Kanji tutor:
In the last six months I’ve learned over 500 kanji characters and Japanese vocabulary words using WaniKani, a “spaced repetition system” flashcard website. The first 3 levels are free, after that you can pay by the year or buy a lifetime account. (Disclosure, my wife used to work at WaniKani’s parent company). — MF
💍 Authentic bling:
My wife picked a small cubic zirconia synthetic diamond for her engagement ring. Because it is just one carat it looks like a diamond. Nobody can tell it is synthetic. Really. It cost $24. Real diamonds are a ripoff. — KK
📺 Watchable:
I enjoy the occasional Joe Rogan rant, because he can be very enlightening. Thankfully, his video on Happiness is short and straightforward, and surprisingly uplifting. Personally, I struggle with “[Happiness is] not having all your ducks in a row,” so this video is a good reminder.  — CD
🤖 Near future must read:
The juiciest source I know for what’s new in the world of artificial intelligence, biotech, and the near future is the free weekly newsletter from Azeem Azhar called Exponential Review. His succinct list of links, annotated with his remarks and degree of confidence of its importance, are a telegraphic way to keep up easily and quickly. I’ve found more good stuff from him that no one else is pointing to. — KK 
🛄 Travel razor:
This small $15 electric razor from Philips Norelco uses 2 AA batteries. I bring it with me when I travel and have started using it at home too, because it works so well. — MF 
🔍 Short link tool:
If you’re avoiding clicking on a link because it’s shortened or you don’t know or trust the sender, copy and paste the url into It’ll show you the entire path of redirects so you know exactly where it goes. — CD
