There is another common misapprehension that the magnitude scale is itself some kind of instrument or apparatus. Visitors will frequently ask to 'see the scale.'
Charles Francis Richter
Crack the science of loyalty at scale for local business, and that becomes something that can add a huge amount of value to an important sector of our economy.
We live in an ascending scale when we live happily, one thing leading to another in an endless series.
Robert Louis Stevenson
During the 80s and 90s, we all became consumed with ourselves. In the 21st century, we've come back to simpler times. People are struggling economically and this has forced them to scale back the material aspects of their lives and realise the beauty of finding the simple joy in being with the people we love.
I'm drawn to furniture design as complete architecture on a minor scale.

The technologies that raise the fewest ethical problems are those that work on a human scale, brightening the lives of individual people.
