PARAGRAPHThese are interesting times for communicators and preachers. Rinse, lather and repeat and you have a fireable offense. A third factor may be that vicious cycle of jealousy and inadequacy. But my team has found other preachers preaching our local series verbatim, with no permission and zero attribution.
Collabra: Psychology 1 January ; 5 1 : Most studies have treated grandiose narcissism as a unidimensional construct and investigated its associations in cross-sectional convenience samples. The present research systematically addresses these limitations by investigating the associations of agentic and antagonistic aspects of narcissism in the interpersonal, intrapersonal, and institutional domains, cross-sectionally and longitudinally in a population-representative sample. Both pre-registered and exploratory research questions regarding interpersonal, intrapersonal, and institutional outcomes of agentic and antagonistic aspects of narcissism were tested.
Liberal democracy , also referred to as Western democracy , is a political ideology and a form of government in which representative democracy operates under the principles of liberalism. It is characterised by elections between multiple distinct political parties , a separation of powers into different branches of government , the rule of law in everyday life as part of an open society , a market economy with private property , and the equal protection of human rights , civil rights , civil liberties and political freedoms for all people. To define the system in practice, liberal democracies often draw upon a constitution , either codified such as in the United States  or uncodified such as in the United Kingdom , to delineate the powers of government and enshrine the social contract. After a period of expansion in the second half of the 20th century, liberal democracy became a prevalent political system in the world. Liberal democracies usually have universal suffrage , granting all adult citizens the right to vote regardless of ethnicity , sex , property ownership, race, age, sexuality, gender, income, social status, or religion.
Confirmation bias is the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms or supports one's prior beliefs or values. The effect is strongest for desired outcomes, for emotionally charged issues, and for deeply entrenched beliefs. Confirmation bias cannot be eliminated entirely, but it can be managed, for example, by education and training in critical thinking skills.

PARAGRAPHHe was the co-founder of Vignelli Associates, with his wife, Lella. Vignelli worked firmly within the Modernist tradition, and focused on simplicity through the use of basic geometric forms in all his work. From to , he visited America on a fellowship, and returned to New York in to start the New York branch of a new company, Unimark International , which quickly became, in scope and personnel, one of the largest design firms in the world. The firm went on to design many of the world's most recognizable corporate identities, including that of American Airlines which forced him to incorporate the eagle, Massimo was always quick to point out.

In this paper the electrical tree growth in solid insulating materials is modeled using von Neumann's Cellular Automata CA. The model is based upon the assumption that the electric stress at the end of a conducting tip quite often approaches the dielectric strength of the material and that progressive breakdown can occur by electrical tree formation. Because of tree advancement, the potential distribution into the insulating material changes with time and is calculated at each time step. An algorithm for the simulation of electrical tree growth in solid dielectrics based on this model has been developed.
