If there is a subject of really universal interest and utility, it is the art of writing and speaking one’s own language effectively. It is the basis of culture, as we all know; but it is infinitely more than that: it is the basis of business. No salesman can sell anything unless he can explain the merits of his goods in effective English (among our people), or can write an advertisement equally effective, or present his ideas, and the facts, in a letter. Indeed, the way we talk, and write letters, largely determines our success in life

as well as how to export that art to the engine and make script

will use 3ds Max release 8 to generate models and animations, and the
Torque Game Engine for the game-side examples.

A person's soft skill EQ is an important part of their individual contribution to the success of an organization. Particularly those organizations dealing with customers face-to-face are generally more successful, if they train their staff to use these skills. Screening or training for personal habits or traits such as dependability and conscientiousness can yield significant return on investment for an organization. For this reason, soft skills are increasingly sought out by employers in addition to standard qualifications....
BUSINESS TODAY IS LARGELY RUN by teams and populated
by authority-averse baby boomers and Generation
Xers. That makes persuasion more important than
ever as a managerial tool.
But contrary to popular belief, the author asserts,
persuasion is not the same as selling an idea or convincing
opponents to see things your way. It is instead
a process of learning from others and negotiating a
shared solution. To that end, persuasion consists of four
essential elements: establishing credibility, framing to
find common ground, providing vivid evidence, and
2007, I wrote an ebook called “Save the Pixel—the Art of Simple Web Design,”
which teaches that simplicity is the key to designing web pages that work. Th e book
has sold more than 8,000 copies, and my agency Scratchmedia has become well

it is well known that market shocks have large effects on the wealth of those
who buy and sell in those markets, I show that market shocks also have large
and persistent wealth effects by determining where people will work and how
much they will make.

I am think-
ing here of Allan Kaprow, John Cage, or George Maciunas. They
sensed that the depictive arts could not be displaced by any
more upheavals from within, any more radical versions of depic-
tion or anti-depiction. They came to recognize that there was
something about the depictive arts that would not permit an-
other art form or art dimension to evolve out of them. The new
challenge to western art would be advanced in terms of move-
ment and the arts of movement. Cage’s piano concert, 4’33”, first
presented in 1952, can be seen as the first explicit statement of
