Opening Sunday, June 12th

A pair of scissors is one way.
A wheelbarrow another.
Also a human mandible.

the mind too….

exert a large force over a small distance at one end by exerting only a small force over a greater distance at the other.

influence the other side to move closer to the negotiating position.

pull away from each other with an equal and opposite force. the arms do not originate this force alone, but are assisted by tension in trunk musculature, through body weight and by momentum.

borrow money, buy fixed assets, use derivatives, multiply gains and losses.

identifying those observations which have a large effect on the outcome of fitting regression models.

attempting to block a kick, jumps off a teammate to attain a better position.

Volume and distance become leverage.

The Notary Public = 192” long x 135” wide = 180 square feet
Workspace = 216” long x 120” wide = 180 square feet

But maybe only a mental projection of where we are and will be standing.

We leverage our ways.
We have to.
