The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

There are more keys than there are lines on the graph. Looks like the lighter blue coronavirus + porn line is missing. Why are there two very similar categories (one just missing the -ography) with very similar colours anyway? Also, it's not clear what the y-axis scale means - percentage change? If so, what is the baseline for the comparison?

Grouping everyone at 200k and above skews the hightest end deceptively since it includes a far, far greater number of incomes. The last bar should reflect 200% to 210% only,

As it is, if we exclude that last bar, wealth seems to be getting distributed more ... evenly for lack of the right word

So they broke the workforce into quintiles. What you would expect if there was no relationship. Right? Am I missing something?

I got it from here:

https://hbr.org/2017/02/being-engaged-a ... productive

Reads like you might expect it to.

Personally, I "engage" only as necessary. Too many folks are "engaged" instead of providing in an efficient manner what I need to do my job.

Also, working long hours does not necessarily equate to productivity. I work with people who spend a lot of time achieving very little.
