But first . . .
Meanwhile, in front of a Texas judge who believes in patent enforcement, jury selection has been moved back from December to February . . . but for a not entirely unhopeful reason: the judge has granted PRKR’s motion to seek punitive damages based on “willfulness,” giving Intel’s attorneys two extra months to prepare.
With hindsight, I feel foolish not to have sold half my PRKR a year ago around $1.50 when the Qualcomm trial was poised to begin, before the judge’s inexplicable ruling — now being appealed.
Even so, with the entire company currently valued at around $20 million, I sit pat and happy with my zillion shares, all purchased with money I could truly afford to lose. The upside, though a gamble, for sure, presses all my buttons.
I barely know what Kaltura does. Just that they went public at $10 last July, got bid up to $13.98, had fallen to $2 by the time I suggested it in March — which is about where it is today — and has rejected $3 a share from one of its competitors. No one is likely to find it as tasty as a competitor (who’d prefer less competition), so I’m not sure how it runs back to $10 any time soon, if ever. But at $2.30, I’m in no rush to sell.
And now . . .
ABOVE THE SCALP
Ah, vanity. But better than hair plugs?
BELOW THE SCALP
So, too, the risk of a fall.
You, of course, are young and nimble. But your dad? Your great aunt?
. . . It may seem surprising, at first consideration, that sitting at a computer to do brain exercises can improve a person’s movement. However, the BrainHQ data has been shown in multiple studies to improve gait and balance and reduce fall risk.
If we can find a way to make BrainHQ exercises as much fun as Wordle or Spelling Bee . . . neither of which likely does anything to improve mental acuity, but without completing each of which I have become incapable of beginning my day . . . then (a) I will become insanely rich and (b) the global scourge of dementia and lesser indignities of aging will be greatly diminished.
In the meantime, you should still do five minutes a day.
It takes less than five minutes to do each BrainHQ level, so you can use it in tiny bites or long blocks, depending on your schedule. Plus you can use BrainHQ on almost any computer or mobile device, so you can take it on the go. If you want, you can set up personal training goals and have BrainHQ send you training reminders when you want them.
Five minutes a day works out to 30 hours a year. A ten-year study of 2,800 subjects found that just 10 hours — not 30 — just the first year — not every year — reduced the incidence of dementia significantly . . . and that adding a 5-hour halfway in cut the instances of dementia at Year 10 almost in half. So what might 30 hours’ worth every year do?
If you want, you can have BrainHQ tell you exactly which exercises to do, and in which order. The personalized trainer feature, designed by scientists, continually measures your performance and serves up the exercises that are right for you.
Or if you prefer, you can design your own program, choosing exercises and workouts that meet your personal interests, mood, and schedule.
Have a great weekend!

Castro asked, 'Tell me friends, which of you is an economist?' I thought he had said 'Which of you is a communist?' so I immediately said 'I am.' At which he said, 'OK, you handle the economy.'~Che Guevara's story of how he became the head of the National Bank of Cuba in 1959, as recounted by Andrei Gromyko
