Pareto's Law (80/20 Principle): This law states that 80% of the results come from 20% of the causes. For example, in business 80% of the sales come from 20% of the good customers/clients

The Value Engineering Approach (VE) is also based on Function (like systems approach), although more narrowly than a system perspective which spans the universe e.g., "galactic system" The basic VE formula is:
Vmax = required function/minimum cost (required function divided by minumun cost)
An extreme example of VE approach is a necktie clip. Think ! What would be a max value necktie clip ?

There is one Supreme Being, the Eternal Reality.
He is the Creator, without fear and devoid of enmity. He is immortal, never incarnated, self existent, known by grace through the Guru.
The name of God brings blissful peace to the hearts of the truly devout.
Guard and keep me, Friend of the humble, weary from wandering far.
Strengthen me, O Lord, that I shrink not from righteous deeds.
(translated by W.H. McLeod 1984

Might Global Ethics Network consider utilizing a "petition sign up" approach for facilitating its members becoming certified CyberPeaceCitizens ? Signing the petition would automatically RT "Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me."&U/UsAll" The petition could be linked to Twitter and Facebook, as is now the case for comments. Also, Carnegie might want to add other material/collaborative peace links ? Seems to me part of the problem is confusion on how to RT basic…Continue
