Looks like somebody watched too many episodes of the Jetsons.
 
AVIA • ENGINEERING • Compact single-seater helicopter GEN H-4
·····················································································································
It has has two rotors turning in opposite directions to maintain stability, and four engines that enables a 30-minute flight with a top speed of about 56 miles per hour.Controlling the GEN H-4 is very easy.If you want go forward, you would pull the control bar toward you. If you want go to the right, you would move it to left, and want to go left, move it to right. If you push the throttle lever, it goes up, you let it, helicopter goes down.

Marty, as always, I love your sense of humor. But, with that being said, I think every answer should be tailored to your audience.

If you can't describe what you are doing as a process, you don't know what you're doing ~ Deming
 
There are still those out there that think Lean, Six Sigma, and other process improvement philosophies are for the manufacturing floor and not the office. It's time to embrace continuous improvement across the organization.

What Google hasn't spent much time talking about is how being able to draw more revealing profiles about its users WILL HELP SELL ADVERTISING — the main source of its $38 billion in annual revenue.

@Shari, hope doesn't get the job done. Been there, done that. ;) We need a plan. We need to implement that plan. We need to improve upon that plan. We need to execute that plan until the desired results are achieved...Time to get off my soapbox. Thanks for listening.
