With so much communication to contend with, it can be difficult to grab people’s attention. But, we are often called upon to do just that.

Data is everywhere. Whether you are at the grocery store, office, laboratory, classroom, or ballpark, you are awash in data: prices, schedules, performance measures, lab results, recipes, contact information, quality metrics, market indices, grades, and statistics.
