20/20 in 2020

Friends,

20/20 in 2020

When you visit the optometrist to have your vision checked, the doctor will have you view letters and numbers through a variety of test lenses. “Is this one sharper or this one? How about now? Is this lens or the previous one the most clear?”


Region of Risk

Friends,

Region of Risk

“Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect”— Captain A. G. Lamplugh, British Aviation Insurance Group, London. c. early 1930's.

Aviation technical manuals emphatically emphasize warnings and cautions to be observed during the full spectrum of aircraft maintenance procedures. Technical training classes reinforce the safety mantra along with safety and human factors posters.

Failing Forward

The only thing that Harland had ever succeeded at was failure. At age fourteen, he dropped out of school and hit the road. He worked as a farmhand but soon quit. He became a streetcar conductor but was fired. At age sixteen he lied about his age and joined the army. It wasn’t long before he was drummed out of the service. Then he tried his hand as a blacksmith. He failed at that.
