Share What is "domain clarity"?
2015-11-26 06:54
Meetings parametrized by Robert's Rules have a meta-meeting at the beginning. During the meta-meeting, we discuss changes to and acceptance of the meeting agenda. An example of domain clarification is also found in financial management during the project evaluation phase while managers consider a possible project's real potential for adding value in the future without causing the host entities to be always bereft of the present living only for a pipe dream, or worse, losing everything ...

Every metric space is a Hausdorff space, the proof of which is normally left as an exercise for the student. Why bother? We want to converse senbsibly about metric spaces since optimized metrics are part of the solution to the global resource distribution problem, since that problem is solved in part by optimized metrics in fleet management applied to resources and labour pools. Since we know a massive part of the problem is solved by optimizing metrics, we can start having the conver ...

Inspired by http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2015-03/31/content_19961791.htm Socrates liked playing tricks on his naive and trusting students, which builds into some of us a defense mechanism against initiating a short term project -- such as Aesop's Fables mp3 recordings for new readers -- since the tricks were designed to hold us down at our limit infimum. Fear of being hunted and dragged back down can stop some of us from setting aside a few days to a few weeks to develop a lite ...

Luxury items are not for everyone. If you qualify as one of the select few, some distinguished classics may be seen. -- standard advertising People of the Philippines, I have returned! The hour of your redemption is here! Rally to me! -- General Douglas MacArthur All I was doing was appealing for an endorsement, not suggesting you endorse it. -- George W.

Share Ambiguous Oil Search Discovers No Clean Fuel
2014-4-14 15:58
George said that he was interviewing for a job drilling oil wells in the supervisory's office. We can only conclude that the supervisor must have an awfully dirty office. Simple Level The conclusion of limited scope depends on the wrong interpretation of what George was doing in the supervisor's office during the interview for a job in the oil industry. We guess George did not give a demonstration of drilling for oil, during the interview in the supervisor's office. ...

Share Faith in Division
2014-4-9 16:44
Switzerland is 48% Protestant. Heidi Gilsing is a Swiss. Therefore, Heidi Gilsing is 48% Protestant. Simple Level The fallacy shown is called Division, which is the name of an incorrect property transfer from the whole to the parts. Some community properties do correctly transfer from the whole to the parts, however, some property belonging to the whole does not transfer to the parts. Clearly, Heidi Gilsing has whatever belief she has, unless she has sufficient training to w ...

Share Complex Questions
2014-4-6 21:50
Sylvia, I saw you shopping for wine the other day. Incidentally, are you still drinking excessively? Teaching mathematics and logic since 1989, I have seen people flinch, look bewildered, and vaguely sense something is wrong when asked a Complex Question, yet without the defenses to know they are correct in telling those who ask Complex Questions to stop that form of harassment. A Complex Question is a fallacious way of requesting information, in which multiple questions ...

  • Happy birthday to you! (or not :-) ) 2019-7-4 00:07

    A couple of friends have a birthday on our national holiday, 1 July, so I started wondering why we celebrate birthdays (it's nice but the history is interesting) and the responsibility for giving is different in different cultures.
