  • that’s why bls produces labor productivity statistics every quarter that tell us how well we are improving our economic efficiency. these measures compare the amount of goods and services we produce with the number of hours we work. how can we can improve labor productivity? there are many ways. we can use more and newer machinery and equipment. we can develop new technologies that streamline production. we can improve organization and communication in the workplace and manage people more effectively. or, we can increase worker skills through education or job training. bls.gov

  • how many health surveys have we conducted? well, we've actually, since enrolment, we've conducted three follow-up surveys. one we conducted, in the first one; wave 2 we refer to as 2005-2006; the third follow-up survey in 2010-2011; and then most recently we had a fourth, 2015-2016. and each time we do a survey, we asked slightly different questions. we have some questions we ask every time such as questions on mental health, post-traumatic stress disorder for instance. we ask about symptoms in every survey. but then we also introduce new questions as time goes on, as we learn. we want to learn about other things. cdc.gov

  • finally, we continue our research to estimate, as accurately as possible, the size and distribution of the undocumented immigrant population in the u.s. and states. and we stress that, though we lack "point" estimates of this population, we believe our "indicator-ranges" are particularly meaningful because they underscore the relative differences in the concentration of these persons by state. census.gov

  • we do very well as a rule in responding to questions from policymakers. we come up short when we have to supply the audience and the question ourselves and we start to write before we have done all the thinking. if we think in terms of answering well defined questions, we can make complex situations comprehensible, and we also stand a better chance of making clear what we know and do not know accurately, conveying our level of confidence, and presenting a convincing basis for our judgments. cia.gov

  • we find ourselves examining everything we do. we alter our jobs and relationships. we do what we have to do, using our new knowledge, we learn to survive. some of us have to give up our careers and find new ones. we learn to rest every few hours. we examine our diets, our doctors and our lifestyles. we push our aching bodies to retain function. everydayhealth.com

  • we were spinning, and when we stopped we were floating in the air. we were wearing astronaut suits! i heard calm music playing in the background. it felt like we were flying birds. the astronaut suits were white, and it looked like we had fishbowls on our heads. we floated around and we saw black rocks that were as big as a dinosaurs egg. factmonster.com

  • “from the very beginning, we have been about 6 to 8 weeks from getting control of the virus and we haven’t done it,” she said. “it’s not that we don’t know how to do it, and it’s not that we don’t have sufficient knowledge. a lot of the epidemiology and transmission dynamics is now quite well understood, or sufficiently so that we know what we need to know in order to control the virus.” healthline.com

  • dr. suarez: no, that’s what i’m arguing, that it doesn’t go there. we need to say first, we support, we applaud, we recognize. then we need to say, however, we caution that the approach of metadata tagging, we don’t agree with this part, we don’t agree with this part. and then, at the end, we advocate. that’s the order, we applaud, however, and now we advocate. hhs.gov

  • it is a very practical matter, a matter of ways and means. we have the resources, but are we fully ready to use them? and, if we can make ready what we have, have we the means at hand to distribute it? we are not fully ready; neither have we the means of distribution. we are willing, but we are not fully able. we have the wish to serve and to serve greatly, generously; but we are not prepared as we should be. we are not ready to mobilize our resources at once. we are not prepared to use them immediately and at their best, without delay and without waste. infoplease.com

  • q: we currently pay for 2-4 users knowing that we will probably never have more than two simultaneous users. we have more than four potential users though. do we need to increase the number of users we pay for? a: no. you pay for the number of simultaneous users, not the number of logons. loc.gov

  • in time, we realized we were not alone. we shared, learned and connected with each other through social media. we tweeted back and forth: "what is the best video conference platform for didactic teaching?" we received numerous answers and had to try them all until one worked, but we learned. similarly, we began to learn how the changes created by this situation supplemented our education rather than detracted from it. mayoclinic.org

  • we evolved to be around those we know and trust, she said. "our security was in numbers. we had our safety by being around other people. we weren't particularly fast runners. we couldn't defy what nature threw at us just by speed. we had to be smart about it. well, one of the smart things we did was we capitalized on each other's brains. we worked together." medicinenet.com

  • next are the differences between fear and anxiety and how they relate to differences in the brain. this is related to reactions we have that can be quite rapid, like when you pull your hand off a hot stove. your reaction happens before you're aware of it. we are not completely aware of how this response to danger happens. if we can better understand why people have the reactions they do, we can help them overcome their problems. medlineplus.gov

  • i think one of the greatest things we can do as doctors is admitting that we don’t have all the answers because we don’t. and if we think we do, we don’t. we never will. years of training and experience, even though it may feel like it, won’t endow us with swathes of knowledge. there’s truth in the idea that the more we learn, the more we realize we don’t know. merckmanuals.com
