superposition Free

Superposition: In any network with 2 or more sources, the current or voltage for any component is the algebraic sum of the effects produced by each source acting separately. The superposition of forces in a mechanical/electrical network results in compromise and allows the building of better bridges and interfaces. Using one ideology is like using half of a pair of pliers to grasp something. My avatar represents the % of approval, by party, that our congress enjoys. John Adams wrote in a letter in 1780: "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." "I was no party man myself, and the first wish of my heart was, if parties did exist, to reconcile them." GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Thomas Jefferson, July 6, 1796.

    Do you mean like the progressive Republicans like Lincoln, TR, and Ike were? Nations are built as a team working together by selecting the best — most proven effective and efficient — ideas from liberal/conservative thinking and incorporating them to EVERYBODY’S advantage, not just a few. Rejecting an idea — without examining its past results/appropriateness — merely because it is conservative or liberal is foolish. Deep partisanship obstructs — not enhances — government function.

    Even extremely rare [outlier] voter fraud such as @hfergus cited ( https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/politics/elections/2014/03/21/democrats-convicted-poll-worker-hero/6712981/ ) would be impossible with a national ID.

    Why, then, are the “Republicans” so afraid of consistent, reliable, un-forgeable, uniform IDs?

    Are men/women better pilots? Here’s an educated opinion …

    If you rummage through the research, you’ll find that only a small percentage of brains will fit neatly into one category of male or female. There is always overlap and in the aviation world, the personality type that is drawn to aviation is a brain that has a stronger control over emotions (oh darn, our engine is on fire versus…Oh My God! We’re gonna die! Our engine is on fire! What do I do?!), better spatial orientation, and the ability to keep track of multiple environmental cues at the same time – just like a girl. While flying IFR, being able to read all six primary flight instruments at the same time is a benefit, so a male brain is being forced to act like a female brain while in the cockpit. Read that previous sentence again.

    A pilot brain will also have a stronger hippocampus which is also known at the map reader of the brain. While the male brain might be better at reading a map quickly2, a female brain will remember the map and the routes better and are less likely to get lost. And, if the female brain feels like they’re off-track, they’re more inclined to recheck the map while the male brain will feel more certain that it’s correct, even if completely off-track.

    So that’s why the answer to the question will always be neither. Female pilots are better than male pilots and male pilots are better than female pilots, it just depends on the moment and the person. In an emergency, the most critical behavior in a cockpit, the balance is that a female brain can more rapidly gather and interpret all the data while the male brain can more accurately evaluate the primary malfunction – but there is always a sequence of malfunctions, so which brain is better? Neither. What is better is having both brains in the cockpit.
