While working in industry during the 1980s and 1990s, project failures were to be avoided at all costs. They typically resulted in significant project delays, wasted time and money, and lost revenues, and often led to lower raises, fewer promotion opportunities, and damaged reputations.
Giordano Bruno, or Iordanus Brunus Nolanus (1548–1600), was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet, and cosmological theorist, born in the Kingdom of Naples.

No matter if an engineer did the best job in the world with a design, if the person responsible for the design cannot communicate the design effectively, then the design effort was wasted. That’s the reason that I gave to my Transport Processes Design course students for requiring that they paid attention to communications in their design reports equal to the attention they paid to technical aspects of their designs.
The Indo-European Languages (IELs) are a family of several hundred related tongues and dialects. There are about 445 living IELs with over two-thirds (313) of them belonging to the Indo-Iranian Branch (IIB).

Today, 46% of the human population speaks an IEL natively, by far the highest of any language family.
