Today’s tutoring included how culture shapes our scientific discoveries and vice versa, the relationship between presumed optimal strategies for the Prisoner’s Dilemma and nuclear detente, genetic algorithms, zero and non-zero sum games, and how great it would be if there were more time made (like 50% of the time) for exploring the items that get higlighted but not explored, and how to retain passion for mathematics and scientific discovery in a system that at times seems hell-bent on beating it out of us with minutiae, surface detail and a culture of sensationalism.

Also the relationship between how various organisms (like yeasts vs. vertebrates) operate without key resources (like oxygen) and how it relates to the study of how charities operate without key resources. (I love cybernetics, and when my different works feed each other).

And yes. I really really love my job.
