The handbook has been released and we are going to take a look at the six core chapters of the Handbook over the next several issues of the webletter. Chapter 4 was devoted to Surface Preparation. Possible contaminants, equipment, results... you name it.
Spending money on high quality materials and equipment to improve marking effectiveness is great. However if the application of those materials is inadequate, those initial intentions will probably not be realized.
We're not necessarily calling for a change in the genetic material of a population of organisms from one generation to the next; not yet anyway. Instead we're looking for the realization of a necessary change in mindset.
If you have an important job interview the next morning, is it a good idea to double up on the recommended dosage of a sleeping pill to ensure a good night's rest? We don't think so either.
