Dr.Jonathan David Farley received his D.Phil. in mathematics from the University of Oxford in 1995, after winning Oxford’s highest mathematics awards, the Senior Mathematical Prize and Johnson University Prize, in 1994. He graduated summa cum laude from Harvard University in 1991, with an A.B. in mathematics. He had the second-highest grade-point-average in his graduating class. He has also had visiting appointments at the California Institute of Technology, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Harvard University, and he has been a Science Fellow at Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation. Dr. Farley is one of only four Americans to win a 2001-2002 Fulbright Distinguished Scholar Award to the United Kingdom. He is the 2004 recipient of the Harvard Foundation’s Distinguished Scientist Award, given on behalf of the president of Harvard University for “outstanding achievements and contributions in the field of mathematics.” Seed Magazine named him one of “15 people who have shaped the global conversation about science in 2005.”
Professor J. Farley also co-founded Hollywood Math and Science Film Consulting where they’ve worked on several tv shows including Elementary, Numbers and Flatland(consulted for a film with Kristen Bell and Martin Sheen).
Jonathan thinks very differently, in fact his thoughts are usually unconventional. My impression was to talk about math as you might’ve thought but we talked about life. Specifically about politics, dating, places among other things.
Below are few points I picked up from Jon which stood out for me in our conversation:
-Obama is a war criminal. He should be charged for murder.
-Marriage isn’t worth it for men, it’s actually a mistake.
-Alimony should be eliminated.
-Feminism is harming women.
-The skills required to be a successful politician are not the same skills that are required to run a state successfully, that’s the problem.
We also did a part 2 where we talked about other subjects we didn’t cover on this one like his mathematical formula to eliminate ISIS/terror, his childhood, academia and more. All you need is to subscribe to stay updated with new podcasts.

JONATHAN FARLEY - UNCONVENTIONAL THINKING.
Steve DIstante is an Entrepreneur and car aficionado from Long Island, New York. He started his first business when he was only 5 years old. He is the CEO of Vanderbilt Securities LLC, member of Long Island Exotics Club and an incoming president of Entrepreneurs Organization(EO)
I was fascinated by his love and enthusiasm for electric vehicles(EV). He owns the model S, P90D with Ludacris mode, The Roadster 2010 and other non-teslas. The first part, We talked about his experience with the cars among other things. One of his car’s number plate is “USA FAN, THE EMPIRE STATE, ZERO EMISSIONS”
This Podcast is relevant on so many levels, its appeals to car geeks, electric car geeks and electric car doubters. I asked Steve the questions that the above groups might ask and his answers are definitely valid because he plays with these toys. It was a fascinating talk really.
I did a part 2 with Steve where we talked about Entrepreneurship, his advice and philosophies are quite unconventional and profound. I recommend that you check it out and subscribe.

“If you’re a man and super organised, you are a such a good worker. If you’re a woman and organised, they say you’re “bitch”-Annika Friesen, my favorite take away from this Podcast.
Annika Friesen is a business person, blogger, traveler, accountant and consultant. She is the creator of Fernwehsociety.com, a blog about lifestyle, travel, and entrepreneurship.
She was bitten by the travel bug while she was only 10 months old and she never look back. She has traveled alot and lived many places while doing all sorts of odd jobs just to stay on the road. That just reminds me of how travel or new places forces you to go out of your comfort zone and try new things that you wouldn’t do in your home town.
In this podcast, we covered:
-Her transition from 9-5 to doing what she love.
-How living in a foreign country affects your life
-How she balance her job and blog
-Women in business
-Her favorite blogs and podcasts
The blogs she mentioned:
Everyone is trying to sell you something. From social media, dates and everything else.
The question is “Are you the seller or the buyer?”, “How many of the things you own/buy are really based on your decisions, preferences as opposed to persuasion through different mediums of advertising?”, “What are the things you’re really passionate about as opposed to interests based on unfiltered desire?”. I also talked about how Mark Zuckerberg’s Jarvis app motivated myself.
This is my very first solo episode and I talk about all that.
The book I mentioned that you can get from audible using my link were:
2) Man’s search for meaning
