Picking the Ring

Two people, or groups of people, are in direct conflict with one another. The first has a distinct set of advantages the other does not possess, say, a certain skill set particularly well suited for prevailing in one particular contest.

A Higher Activity

Two colors almost identical. Two words almost synonymous. Two sounds almost indistinguishable. How to distinguish?

Navigating the Maze

All human–created systems––e.g., educational, economic, legal––have a design. These design characteristics vary, with some aspects being welcoming, beneficial; other aspects, not so much. We tend to focus on design flaws because of how easily they intrude into our consciousness and make themselves known. A maze is a path or collection of paths, typically from an entrance […]

Webster defines preparation as “the action or process of making something ready for use or service or of getting ready for some occasion, test, or duty.” They are layers of preparation.
