Measuring Time by Observation For millennia people measured time based on the position of the sun. When the sun was directly overhead it was noon. Each city had its mechanical clock which was set by the angle of the sun at noon. In Dombey and Son he wrote "There was even railway time observed in clocks, as if the sun itself had given in."

Writing & Grammar: Then Versus Than

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

chill wind brushed the treetops, (then/than) the sun rose. by Jennie Ruby. People often confuse the proper use of then and than. Pronunciation is likely the culprit. In the mid-Atlantic region people tend to pronounce both of these as "then." " Here's the difference, with a quick memory aid: then rymes with when  and is always about time: When did he make the onside kick? First they made the touchdown, then he made the onside kick. Than is about comparisons: He is taller than I am. The Cadillac is more expensive than the Camry. When was she taller? Back then.

Luckily, like the nursery rhyme goes, up came the sun and dried up all the rain. Inkling is made up of amazing Inkblots. Each year we hold a company-wide picnic, with activities thoughtfully designed to stretch our understanding of one another beyond the daily office dynamic. This year, we took the old-fashioned notion of a company picnic and really brought it to life. Our goal wasn’t to merely bring the whole team together in an engaging setting, outside of the workplace. One of those core values is “Grit,” and there was no shortage of it throughout the day!

"NSA joining social network for intelligence analysts" (Baltimore Sun)

Mark Oehlert

So the upshot of this article is that the NSA is joining an ongoing effort called "A-Space" within the intelligence community to share info. Its big news because the NSA is just a wee bit on the secretive side - a friend of mine who works there, never had business cards as a minor example. Beyond the fact the freaking NSA is learning how to open up and yet we still have non-classified government organizations and corporations who act like the use of these systems wold compromise their HR databases (BTW, if the use of these systems will do that - you need to hire a new IT department).

‘Checking’ In

The bandana, well it served as a sun cover, mosquito deterrent, towel (see above), and glasses wipe. As a personal reflection, the value of checklists and forcing functions can definitely be understated.  As I mentioned , last week I went into the woods for a few days. And while the trip didn’t live up to our plans, it was a great experience. However, there was a particular gap that points out our cognitive limitations. So, I have a backpacking checklist. And I look at it from time to time. What I  didn’t do this time was check it before the trip. Amongst others.
