🏎️ The Science Behind 'Somersault' Crashes & Dangerous Aero
Race car crashes can be horrifying, but none get close to the craziness of those witnessed at the 1999 Le Mans 24 hour race. Seemingly out of nowhere, cars can suddenly flip in the air, with some doing full 360s or others cascading off into or even over the barriers. Read in this blog post what measures modern race cars take to prevent it happening again👇

📚 Book of the Week
The Unfair Advantage: How You Already Have What It Takes to Succeed
Based on their experience as entrepreneurs, investors and mentors, the authors present aspiring founders an audit framework to assess and act on their unfair advantages. The framework goes by the acronym MILES: money, intelligence/insight, location/luck, education/expertise, and status.
The framework helps founders understand their underlying motivations and mindset, which can evolve over time. They need to understand their personality along the dimensions of openness, curiosity, discipline, introversion/extroversion, friendliness, and ability to handle stress and worry. Complimentary skills and types can add balance to a founder team, the authors explain.
