On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • After completing a rewarding internship at an office in your field, what's the best way to maintain the valuable connections you made there?
  • How can you become an influential face in your community and inspire others who share your life-threatening adrenal deficiency when you're always second-guessing yourself into awkwardness in social situations?
  • Avoiding that toxic person in or near your social circle is great advice -- but what if you're getting the sinking feeling that toxic person is you?
  • Do you have to go to law school to prove you're smart and live up to the expectations of others when you already love your so-called side hustle that more than pays the bills?
  • As a gay person of color living in Rwanda where homosexuality is highly stigmatized, are you naive to think you'd be more free to live your lifestyle openly by immigrating to Canada or the U.S. and starting over?
  • When an executive at the company where you've been doing contract work is keeping you in the dark about the status of an offer to hire you full time, does it do any harm to look for another job in the meantime?
  • Is there really a need to rush home to the other side of the world at the request of family and friends when you love where you're living and working abroad?
  • An estranged parent you've never met may die soon. Should you take the chance now to meet up before it's too late even though it's never been much of a priority in your life?

Vince Beiser (@vincelb) is an award-winning journalist specializing in social issues, technology, and the places they intersect. His latest book is The World in a Grain: The Story of Sand and How It Transformed Civilization.

What We Discuss with Vince Beiser:

  • Sand is to cities what flour is to bread -- without sand, civilization as we know it could not exist.
  • Sand is at the core of our daily lives, used to make concrete, glass, asphalt, silicon chips in laptops, and smartphones.
  • Usable sand is a finite, endangered resource and desert sand doesn't work for construction -- in fact, Dubai imports sand from Australia.
  • There's a black market for sand, and there are sand pirates -- it's a resource over which people literally die.
  • Nearly 70% of sand on Earth is quartz (one of the most common minerals on earth), and the cycle to create new sand takes 200 million years.
  • And much more...
