When I hear, or read the term "god", I usually think of some zeus-like father figure on a cloud, or something. As religion re-defines it's definitions once again, shouldn't we move on, and come up with a better term for an unknown entity? (I'll only include this particular term for a supreme being, to keep it simple.) Apologies to the others.
Perhaps this would be too radical, but it could be a good start toward a worldwide concensus on religion, nonetheless. I know the non-believers can come up with a better term to start perpetuating in the 21st century. I am becoming somewhat offended by the implications that arise from the use of it.

The ability to speak clearly, succinctly, and powerfully is easier than you think
The ability to communicate effectively can make or break a person's assessment of your intelligence, competence, and authenticity.
The results come from a 15-year study that used ultrasound scans to track blood vessels in middle-aged adults starting in 2002.
- The study measured the stiffness of blood vessels in middle-aged patients over time.
- Stiff blood vessels can lead to the destruction of delicate blood vessels in the brain, which can contribute to cognitive decline.
- The scans could someday become a widely used tool to identify people at high risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer's.
What defines a dark horse? The all-important decision to pursue fulfillment and excellence.
When we first set the Dark Horse Project in motion, fulfillment was the last thing on our minds. We were hoping to uncover specific and possibly idiosyncratic study methods, learning techniques, and rehearsal regimes that dark horses used to attain excellence. Our training made us resistant to ambiguous variables that were difficult to quantify, and personal fulfillment seemed downright foggy. But our training also taught us never to ignore the evidence, no matter how much it violated our expectations.
