When there's no public comment
Glenn Mathewson, NADRA
There is a lot to be learned in the code modification process. While we may not all agree on every proposal, they usually all have a justification reasonable to someone or some group. Don't take that lightly. Take what can be learned from ideas and experiences of professionals looking to increase the minimum standard ... and use it to increase the knowledge behind your best standard. Never forget the difference between minimum standard and best standard, and the freedom and the market that thrive on the distinction.

Wood science 101: Where does lumber come from?
Woodworking Network
One of the more interesting phenomena of today's world is the insulation we have from the source of our sustenance, or raw materials.

Decision making, Top Gun style
Harvard Business Review
When Tom Cruise's "Maverick" inverted his F-14 fighter jet and gave "the bird" to his Soviet opponent in the opening scene of 1986′s Top Gun, Cruise assured himself a lighthearted place in the history of the Cold War. What that scene also did, however, was provide one of cinematography's great examples of a key concept of air-to-air combat: the OODA loop.
