In The News
Research from the Technical University of Munich found that the symptoms of ADHD appeared to be associated with specific traits that made individuals successful entrepreneurs. This conclusion was reached by an international team of economists.
In their study they found entrepreneurs who had ADHD were more likely to embrace new experiences and also demonstrated greater passion and persistence than those who did not suffer from the condition.
Individuals with ADHD appeared to make more intuitive decisions in situations than did those who did not have ADHD - especially in situations where the outcome was uncertain. The researchers saw this as a reason for reassessing current economic models that may have an outcome in how business is run in the future.

Fact or Fiction?
A grain of sand may get into a mollusk shell, or in this case a clam. The irritation from the sand will cause the clam to secrete layers of nacre, coating the sand until it grows into a pearl. These pearls are made of calcium carbonate and, believe it or not, will quickly dissolve in vinegar. While diamonds are a hard substance, pearls are more delicate and require greater care. The carbonates in the pearl react with the acids in the vinegar, dissolving the carbon from the pearl and into the remaining fluid. The pearl will essentially ‘disappear’ into the vinegar.
Have a wonderful day!
