Managing Pitchers; Managing Entrepreneurs

By kdadmin | August 23, 2008

While watching a Knoxville Smokies (AAA for Chicago Cubs) baseball game last night, a phenomenom that I never figured out during my baseball days dawned on me. Why do left handed pitchers wear their hats crooked – not all of them but most of them for sure? It was so apparent that even on the […]

On Anti-Aging

By kdadmin | August 23, 2008

One thing is for certain in life, your parents will let you know when you are getting old. I’ve also noticed my close Japanese friends will let me know when I’m getting old or fat but they are more helpful in helping me keep my youth via nice skin whitening cream, i.e. Shiseido. My last […]

Putting from the Fairway

By kdadmin | August 23, 2008

The last few times that I’ve played golf, I’ve used my putter from the fairway. The elusive 25 yard chip is often problematic; its about touch. Sometimes you just don’t have it and sometimes you do. Its the same in billiards, dancing, ping pong , and well any other thing you can think of that […]

Now that I’ve lived in San Francisco during the rainy season, I have learned about a new type of rain. Most of you aren’t familiar with Carolina Rain, which is a great song by Carolina Rain. Some of the quotes are “rain feels like heaven when the water hits my skin” and “nothing washes my […]

BYO Chopstix

By kdadmin | March 27, 2008

Did you know that China produces 68Bn disposable chopstix per year? That is roughly 60/person. Most of these are sold to small restaurants implying that the average chinese eat out once out of every 6 days.
