You should definitely be ready for techincals, especially if the job you're interviewing for is industry-specific. More and more people (myself included) don't ask too many "gotcha" technicals because they don't have chips on their shoulder, but you want to prove that you're competent enough to prepare properly. Hope this helps.

Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae - a family of germs that are difficult to treat because they have high levels of resistance to antibiotics. E. coli is an example.

Healthy people usually do not get CRE infections - they usually happen to patients in hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare settings. Patients whose care requires devices like ventilators (breathing machines), urinary (bladder) catheters, or intravenous (vein) catheters, and patients who are taking long courses of certain antibiotics are most at risk for CRE infections. Some CRE bacteria have become resistant to most available antibiotics. Infections with these germs are very difficult to treat, and can be deadly--one report cites they can contribute to death in up to 50% of patients who become infected.

People think I'm named Jake Paul after the social media/youtuber douche.

I actually take after Jacob "Jake" Paul, an advisor to the first LBO in history, that he pretty much spearheaded and figured out (advised McLean Industries in the 50s). Kohlberg and Kravis took after Paul years after, and most people here know how that went...

He doesn't get enough love as an innovator/pioneer here. I would've never heard of him without some obscure literature a professor mentioned my sophomore year of college.

I guess his approach was pretty rudimentary and improvisational, but still he made a huge mark on the game. My picture and signature are from a movie.

Jan 22, 2019

Me and a friend started trading crypto currencies a while back, was a lot of fun with the low barriers to entry and the high volatility ( I ended up breaking even after the meltdown in 2018 btw, learned a few lessons).

Anyway, we ironically (with a hint of unironic egoism) decided our enterprise needed a nickname that sounded finance-esque. We tried a few "hedge fun name generators" and the results were not bad, just cookie cutter. After some though I came up with Chrysos Clan Capital. Chrysos = Gold in Greek, it sounds cool, gold obviously as the symbol of money, wealth, prosperity. Clan = As in blood relation, both our families hail from the same part of the world and are part of the same clan. Barbaric, I know. "Capital" just topped off the name.

So here were are. I joined the forum, didn't want to use my name, thought the name I came up with was good, so I used it.
