Color Vision Deficiencies and the Evolution of Color Vision in Primates - The ability to see color is something that many people take for granted.

Communicating Goals to Stakeholders with a Vision Statement - Sure, most company heads know what they want their organizations to become in the future, but unfortunately unless those goals are communicated to the members who are able to position the company in such a manner to arrive at that destination, the organizations are likely to end up somewhere unintended.
