Hi all,
This is the first issue of my newsletter, there is a lot left to learn but it doesn’t hurt to get started. I’m excited to share my part of the internet with you every week. In this issue, you’ll find some of the things that have been on my mind for the past few months.
📃Contents:
  • Valuation: (1) Buffett Indicator, (2) Aswath Damodaran on Tesla
  • Data: (1) Omicron wave data visualization by John Burn-Murdoch (FT)
  • Tech: (1) PowerToys for Windows
  • ⏭️Next
Enjoy and have a great week!

🔍Valuation
The stock market is glowing red hot. We’ll take a look at two valuation indicators, one is a ratio (the Buffett Indicator), the other a valuation of Tesla by Aswath Damodaran (professor at Stern and renowned valuation expert).

💽Data
John Burn-Murdoch (@jburnmurdoch) does data visualization for the Financial Times (FT) and is a visiting senior fellow at the London School of Economics’ Data Science Institute.
In this tweet, John shows just how different the Omicron variant is. Cases, Patients, Vented, and Deaths are adjusted for time delays (they are synced in prior waves). Notice the difference with the wave last year!

NEW: first thread of 2022 is an Omicron situation update, starting with a detailed look at UK hospitals, before going international.

Let’s start with severity, and the most important chart:

Despite steep rises in cases and patients, the number on ventilators has barely risen. https://t.co/p1mzD7DorK
🤖Automation
More than ever, we spend countless hours working on fancy multi-monitor setups. On Windows, splitting a monitor into two equally sized windows is not always optimal (for example when taking notes next to a browser).
Brought back from the dead (Windows 95 times), Microsoft PowerToys is a utility that does many clever things. Its FancyZones feature in particular allows you to “snap” windows to regions on your monitor that you define yourself. Split your monitor into any number of regions and increase efficiency instantly!
PowerToys - Microsoft Store
As an added bonus you also get a system-wide Color Picker, great for any professional, and PowerToys Run which allows you to find and launch apps quickly (similar to Spotlight on Mac).
⏭️Next
  • As part of a marketing course at LSE, our team has done research on BrewDog (a rapidly growing “craft beer” brewer), more on our findings soon!
  • My new website and the Astro framework, which is actually quite beginner-friendly (for a change)
