In knowledge-based economies, that machinery is the mind."

It was the way he'd made her laugh, made her smile, made her complain and then cuddle.

And he most definitely was not going to surrender her to another male who could give her what she needed. The idea made him want to break something."

There are wide variations about the mean."

30. "The relative ease of most driving lures us into thinking we can get away with doing other things. Indeed, those other things, like listening to the radio, can help when driving itself is threatening to cause fatigue. But we buy into the myth of multitasking with little actual knowledge of how much we can really add in or, as with the television news, how much we are missing. As the inner life of the driver begins to come into focus, it is becoming clear not only that distraction is the single biggest problem on the road but that we have little concept of just how distracted we are."
