  Multiple Intelligences for Adult Literacy and Adult Education  

HOME

Employers are increasingly frustrated by workers' deficiencies in fundamental reading, writing, and math skills. The labor shortage is complicated by the difficulty in finding people who are qualified to work . . . or at least trainable. Insufficient basic education makes training considerably more challenging.  From "Trend Alert," by Roger and Joyce Herman, Strategic Business Futurists. (800) 227-3566 or www.herman.net.

The lightning that we see actually goes from the ground to the sky in what is known as the "return stroke" at 1/3 the speed of light.  We can't see the initial "stepped leader" that passes from the sky to the ground.

What does WD-40 stand for?

"WD-40 literally stands for Water Displacement, 40th attempt. That's the name straight out of the lab book used by the chemist who developed WD-40 back in 1953. The chemist, Norm Larsen, was attempting to concoct a formula to prevent corrosion-a task which is done by displacing water. Norm's persistence paid off when he perfected the formula on his 40th try.
