[1]Gold, China And Facebook: Detecting Market Bubbles

Nin-Hai Tseng | Fortune | 18 March 2011

"Boombustologist" Mansharmani lists five early warning signs of impending
  bubbles. Includes Sotheby's common stock price alongside construction of
  record-breaking skyscrapers. Gold, China and social networks possibly
  "bubbling" now

[2]I Was The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz

Neil Tweedie | Telegraph | 18 March 2011

Seemingly incredible story of Denis Avey, who risked life and limb breaking
  into Nazi concentration camp. Succeeded in 1944, driven on by desire to act
  as witness to the torment. One visit wasn't enough so he went back a second
  time

[3]Osborne’s Long Game

George Parker | FT Magazine | 18 March 2011

Superb profile of UK's enigmatic chancellor of the exchequer. On how he has
  failed to become Britain's most hated man, despite his aristocratic Tory
  background and savage spending cuts: "I hadn't reckoned on Nick Clegg"

[4]The Swinging Savant

Austin Murphy | Sports Illustrated | 16 March 2011

Enjoyable profile of Bubba Watson, big-hitting golfer from Bagdad, Florida.
  He's never had a golf lesson, has a corkscrewing swing that takes him off
  his feet, and plays with a smile on his face (now). Golf needs characters
  like him

Pamela Paul | NYT | 18 March 2011

Our attitude to telephone conversations has changed. Email, text and social
  media make calls seem intrusive and awkward. Overall volume of voice calls
  in sharp decline. Is early telephonic etiquette making a silent return?

[6]Herds On The Street

Jonah Lehrer | WSJ | 19 March 2011

Want to be a better investor? Think like a fish. Networked, synchronous
  behaviour dramatically increases investment success and returns. Idea that
  certain traders have "some uncanny ability to decipher the market" looks
  outdated
