Age is not really the biggest factor, whichever end of the scale you are at. It’s how you perform, how you respond to the challenge of having good players around you competing for your place.
Facebook is massive in scale and scope. Twitter is a public communication forum, but if I’m following you, you’re not necessarily following me. LinkedIn is, simply, a professional network.
Jeff Weiner
What if life is not carbon-based? Can life exist as a gas or a plasma? Could planets or stars in some sense be alive? What about an interstellar cloud? Could life exist on such a small or large scale, or move so fast or so slowly that we wouldn’t recognize it? Could you have an intelligent virus?
I dreamed of doing stuff like Will Smith and films on a big scale.
As digital communications have multiplied, and NSA capa

As digital communications have multiplied, and NSA capabilities with them, the agency has shifted resources from surveillance of individual targets to the acquisition of communications on a planetary scale.
To make three films out of one shortish book, they have to turn it into an epic, just as ‘Lord of the Rings’ is an epic. But ‘The Hobbit‘ isn’t an epic: its tone is intimate and personal, and although it’s full of adventures and excitement, they’re on a different scale to those of the bigger book.
I’m 25, so I’ve already gone through what my character Ged goes through, though it’s on a general scale because I haven‘t studied at a wizard‘s school.

Prosperity is no just scale; adversity is the only balance to weigh friends.
But the prospects of designing chemical plants for industrial scale chemical processes seemed far less interesting than the chemical events that occur in biological systems.
Paul Berg
Scale is not just something that a director wants so as to play with all the toys. Scale also lends verisimilitude, to put together a real world.
The sun doesn’t always shine; the wind doesn’t always blow. This is why, if we want to rely on renewables, we need intelligent systems that integrate and coordinate different sources of energy at scale so that when one is scarce or unavailable, the others can automatically compensate.
As a Virginian, I am proud of Dominion and SunEnergy1 for bringing utility scale solar to the state.
There are really two things that have to occur in order for a new technology to be affordable to the mass market. One is you need economies of scale. The other is you need to iterate on the design. You need to go through a few versions.
War is a form of really bad manners, in a strange way. Invading a country I think is just the worst possible manners. ‘You’re not invited!’ Gate crashing on a large scale!
Both Springsteen and Michael Jackson, who had these huge productions, could always scale them back down to just a song and a melody. All of that influences me. I also try to be a fictional writer, and sometimes I get close, but the things that resonate the most with me – and with everyone else – is what’s real.
When you have a crime against humanity that is so awesome in scale and death, it is more than permissible to look around and say, who recently has been declaring war on the United States? Of course, the compass points straight to bin Laden.

Meltem Demirors
It’s always a balance, and sometimes I’m on the good side of that scale, and sometimes I’m on the bad side.
In America, mixed-race identity tends to invite both curiosity and suspicion, largely because few have found a way to interrogate it without centering whiteness as the scale by which to evaluate blackness.
Coming to Korea and becoming a singer, I always had two big goals personally. One was to be able to make it at some point so that I could do good things – I was always raised with an interest in social impact, philanthropy. The other thing was to be able to take my music and do it on a global scale.
Pluto is still active four and a half billion years into its history. It was expected that small planets like Pluto would cool off long ago and not still be showing geological activity. Pluto is, in fact, showing numerous examples of geological activity on a massive scale across the planet.
With ‘AGT’ I was allowed more freedom to be myself. It was also quite a different scale.
Courtney Hadwin

I was very impressed with the scope and scale and impact that came from originally one person making ‘Minecraft.’ It’s inspiring for me to think how our team can do more with less.

Very, very few podcasts have made it to scale, and to me, that says this business will never be big.

On a scale of the United States, the Hollywood influence on what comes out, that’s not the majority views of across the country. What we read in Us Weekly or People magazine, or Entertainment Tonight, it’s not what the majority of the country is thinking.
What I have appreciated about the ‘Call of Dutygames is the scale of production. It’s not an indie game. It’s not trying to be an indie game. But I’ve genuinely been pretty consistently blown away by, wow, what an effort has gone into this.
In general, a lot of content creators find that their s

In general, a lot of content creators find that their success is unable to support any sort of organization of scale. It’s pretty difficult to support even three or four employees.
I think if we’re going to be serious as a city, as a country, about addressing climate change, addressing inequality and racial disparities, we have to start taking action at the scale that matches the urgency of the problems.
There is a huge need and a huge opportunity to get everyone in the world connected, to give everyone a voice and to help transform society for the future.

Business has the unique ability to make things happen fast and at scale.
If you eat foie gras, I would really urge you to look at the practice that goes in to producing it. It is totally barbaric and involves force-feeding on the most horrific scale imaginable.

I’ve been offeredCelebrity Fit Club’, where you have to take off your shirt and get on a scale. I got kids, man. I’m not going to humiliate myself. I’d rather drive a cab.
Steve Schirripa
On a scale of 1-10, I would consider myself an 8.5 rowdy. I prefer being rowdy in the day. I’m a 10 day rowdy, 7 night rowdy.
I’m a leftie, and I’ve always believed in doing things on a modest scale.

I’m grasping with how you do something on a large scale with multiple operations and not have quality decrease.
Go out there and see where the world needs your touch. That kind of meaning not only makes you feel more connected to your environment on a local scale, but also to yourself – whether you can operate from something beyond the definition that others might place on you.
Sharon Lawrence

Whenever I sing on a different scale, I sound very different. However, I have learned that I can experiment with my tone.
To most people in the U.K., indeed throughout Western Europe, space exploration is primarily perceived as ‘what NASA does’. This perception is – in many respects – a valid one.

On average, it takes as much as $100 million in paid media for a brand to be a household name in America. Marketing partnerships are the best form of off-balance sheet financing one can ever find. Smart startups use this technique to scale their companies and build their brand equity.

Historically, the notes of scale systems anywhere have been based on these pure harmonics.

I remember the kind of teenager I was, the kind of teenager I wanted to be, and then the kind of teenagers that were all around me. Life is lived on such a big scale in those years – and such an embarrassing one as well.
I’m drawn to furniture design as complete architecture on a minor scale.
I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and Non-violence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could.
We would have been happy if we could have assigned just three categories, large, medium, and small; the point is, we wanted to avoid personal judgments. It actually turned out to be quite a finely tuned scale.
Star Wars has built-in scale. Everybody understands it, we know the scale of the universe.
When I practise scales I will play four notes on one string. If I’m playing a C major scale, starting on F, I’ll play the F, G, A, and B on one string and the C will be on the A string, etc, etc. Because I found not only was it good for my hands but it was really good for interconnecting things.
Frozen‘ is a phenomenon on an entirely new Disney scale.
Edward Kitsis
Passing a beggar who asks for money causes discomfort – and so it should. The act of facing and acknowledging human suffering and hardship on this scale ought to imprint itself on a society that has such glaring divides in income and comfort.
Amazon has reported a loss of nearly $900M in 1999… because, guess what, ecommerce is a business of scale. And, the Internet bubble had burst… which meant that no one was getting funded.

One of the tricky things about sort of larger, comic-book action movies is that the scale is so big that they have to save the world at the end of every movie, and so at the end of each of the films, either Chicago or New York end up getting obliterated.
While I pride myself on trying to be creative in all areas of my life, I have occasionally gone overboard, like the time I decided to bring to a party a salad that I constructed, on a huge rattan platter, to look like a miniature scale model of the Gardens of Babylon.
We have a good sense of the pulse of the industry. We know what’s going on out there. We know that deep learning adoption is broad. It’s going into production at scale.

I’m a fan of motorsport and a fan of McLaren and I was lucky to work with the company on a small scale across my career but to be able to race now with that brand on my jersey, it’s pretty special. I still have to rein in my fanboy attitude sometimes.

In Africa, we have the bush meat trade, which means that, on a very large scale, animals are being killed in the forests and sold in the cities as a luxury food.
Once you go from 10 people to 100, you already don’t know who everyone is. So at that stage you might as well keep growing, to get the advantages of scale.

I believe that United really is a very big club on a worldwide scale and even more so in England, where it’s the biggest. They always want to win and to be fighting on all fronts, and that’s the reason I wanted to come here.
You can’t work in a steel mill and think small. Giant converters hundreds of feet high. Every night, the sky looked enormous. It was a torrent of flames – of fire. The place that Pittsburgh used to be had such scale.
Jack Gilbert
I want to concentrate on my career and would like to scale greater heights.
Soccer is Europe’s biggest sport and the world’s biggest sport, so as we look to go into Europe, soccer is the way to do it because of the sport’s size and scale, as well as its athletes who know and understand our brand.

I’m convinced that the Great Lakes region will be at the center of an internally-focused North American economy when the hallucination of oil-powered globalism dissolves. Places like Buffalo, Cleveland, and Detroit will have a new life, but not at the scale of the twentieth century.
When my kids were toddlers, they had all these rotomolded plastic things. My life became surrounded by big, hollow plastic toys – from the scale of playhouses down to rocking horses, and everything in between – which we would then take to the secondhand store. But we’d get sentimentally attached and hate to see them go.
Greg Lynn
I’ve always loved clothes, especially handbags and shoes. I’d rather save my money on clothing and wear crap, but have the handbags and shoes. I used to buy a Ferragamo or Louis Vuitton bag every job that I got. Now I have a child, and we pay for private school, so I’ve had to scale back!
Alicia Coppola
We understand how to build and manage businesses that i

We understand how to build and manage businesses that involve technology, engineering, and people at a large scale on a global platform.
Flexible working is not just for women with children. It is necessary at the other end of the scale. If people can move into part-time work, instead of retirement, then that will be a huge help. If people can fit their work around caring responsibilities for the elderly, the disabled, then again that’s very positive.
Economies of scale are a good thing. If we didn’t have them, we’d still be living in tents and eating buffalo.
I went to Everton, and it’s levels – the higher up you get, you are under more and more scrutiny as a football player. You have to learn to deal with it at that scale and gradually progress to be able to deal with it at an even higher scale.
Scales always lie. They don’t make a scale that ever told the truth about value, about worth, about significance.
I got on the scale and I weighed around 203. I’m only 5’7. I was about to turn 30, and I wasn’t active anymore. So I started working with a nutritionist and a trainer. I played basketball twice a week. And soon it all just became a habit for me. I became addicted to something good for a change.
Jerry Ferrara
People used to share things with e-mail on a massive scale. If you remember e-mail forwards from the late ’90s, it was a terrible way to share content.
Jonah Peretti
When you bring the scale and precision of data-driven platforms to the brilliance of great media executions, magic will happen. Delivering on that vision for the Independent Web is the mission of Federated Media Publishing.
In spite of what are unprecedented measures in scale and scope, I can’t stand here and say I can save every single job, protect every single business or indeed every single charity. That’s just simply not possible.
Rishi Sunak
I love Las Vegas, but I never get a chance to play a club like the House of Blues. I guess we’ve graduated to a bigger scale than that. When the Eagles come in and play, that’s on a grand scale.
People at the very top of the income scale also benefited from globalization and automation. But the income of working- and middle-class people in the developed world has stagnated.
Before you can apply chromatic ideas to scales and arpeggios, you have to get the chromatic scale itself under your fingers. You should learn it up and down the neck, and become comfortable with the fingerings.

Paul McEuen
This inner strength we have, this desire to evolve and expand and explore, I do love that about humanity. At the same time, it’s scary what it does on a global scale. I’m very much caught between the two.
If you look historically, what creates growth and wealth is innovation and investment, and increase in scale – more customers.
Frederick W. Smith
I suppose subconsciously I was thinking in terms of having the scale of it matching the scale of the images. Hence the sort of string quartet, jazz band and electronic stuff.
If you need to do a movie where you have an army of 10,000 soldiers, that’s a very difficult thing to shoot for real. It’s very expensive, but as computer graphics techniques make that cheaper, it’ll be more possible to make pictures on an epic scale, which we haven’t really seen since the ’50s and ’60s.
I can’t imagine that companies are uninteresting if they don’t have a billion users. But I do believe, to have mass scale, you have to be in the many-hundreds-of-millions-of-users range, and there are not that many companies that get there.
Running on the cloud gives us scale. It also allows us to moderate, watch the chat, keep Roblox family-friendly and safe, and it allows just everyone to kind of push their creations and immediately scale infinitely.
Technology has enabled government to have investigative and situational awareness on a scale and scope that were science fiction when the Stasi shut its doors.
Yochai Benkler
Doctor Who‘ is the best show to write for, because of the actors and the scale of imagination that it demands.
There are a lot of artists in Gowanus, and certain things come into your visual vocabulary from living there – the scale of the subway and the canal, sometimes it almost looks like a de Chirico painting, with the intense angles of the shadows and everything.
Dana Schutz
I think we would find, if you study the conduct of guerilla-type wars, that the Obama Administration has hit more targets on a broader scale than the Nixon Administration ever did.
Banks operate like a man who either wears his trousers round his chest, stifling breathing, as now, or round his ankles, exposing his assets. We want their trousers tied round their middle: steady lending growth; particularly to productive British business, especially small scale enterprise.
Our form of democracy is bribery, on the highest scale.
On the molecular scale, you find it’s reasonable to have a machine that does a million steps per second, a mechanical system that works at computer speeds.

We’re living through a time where we are fighting wars fostered by politics, admittedly not on the same scale as the First World War, but with equally tragic realities for our soldiers and their families.

It’s hard to get your head around the scale of Australia.
One of the hardest things to do is to get capital. That’s where we, as black business, struggles. And the other place we struggle is scale, and because we don’t have an access to capital, we cannot scale.
I'm from Dallas, so I totally get the whole thing. I un

I’m from Dallas, so I totally get the whole thing. I understand the history and on how big of a scale ‘Dallas’ was and still is.

Many young and beginning farmers start out in local markets. Some stay there, and some scale up.
You see, the thing about us humans is we overcomplicate things. To eat, our food manufacturing processes work on a huge scale, clearing land, rearing livestock, killing it, packaging it. Go big, only to shrink it all back down to small enough to shove in our mouths.
If you’re in Hollywood, with no track record, it’s pretty odds-on that you can get swamped and overwhelmed by the sheer scale of it all; particularly with the intense commercial push that you feel there.
The technologies that raise the fewest ethical problems are those that work on a human scale, brightening the lives of individual people.
Relative to most of the energy and material flows on Earth, the machinations of humankind are puny. The planet’s powers are much, much bigger than our own. But in a few sensitive places, we’re making an impact on a planetary scale, and that impact is not a good one.
I like to act. I work for scale. I don’t have an acting agent. I’m in the book.
Obviously, Iron Maiden is on a way bigger scale to British Lion, but as a musician playing live, it’s just the adrenaline rush of playing in front of an audience that gives you that rush.
A society that is all self-interest and no comradeship is not a society at all. But a society that is all comradeship and no self-interest is also not a society; it is a sect – or, on the largest scale, totalitarianism.
In the snobbery of science, each branch attempts to rise in the social scale by imitating the methods of the next higher science and by ignoring the methods and phenomena of the sciences beneath.
Gilbert Newton Lewis

From a professional standpoint, our transformation of the labor landscape at scale through technology with Levo is the highest and best direction of my energy.

At some of the venues, the audience was so loud we could hardly hear what was happening on stage, which kind of threw us back to 1983, when we had very similar reactions on a much bigger scale.
Roger Andrew Taylor
To scale your business, you need to delegate responsibilities to others and establish a strong company culture.
My beef with the alt-fuel people is not the renewable or alt-fuel ideas themselves. Sooner or later, there’s no question we’re going to have to rely on them. For me, it’s an issue of scale.
The Republican party is not perfect, but if you put this party’s record of achievements on one side of a balance scale and the Democrat‘s record on the other, the Republican side would slam the table.
Angela McGlowan
There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.
The iPhone is made on a global scale, and it blends computers, the Internet, communications, and artificial intelligence in one blockbuster, game-changing innovation. It reflects so many of the things that our contemporary world is good at – indeed, great at.
I don’t want to compare President Obama and President Trump on these issues, because they’re different, and the scale isn’t even remotely the same. But President Obama said things that weren’t true and got away with it more for a variety of reasons, and one is the media was much more supportive of him.
There's such a want for Indian people to be represented

There’s such a want for Indian people to be represented in large scale movies. Hopefully, it will happen more and more, whether it’s with me or other people. There’s an audience for it.
‘The Dante Club’ was one of America’s most important book clubs, as their Wednesday night meetings ultimately led to our country’s first exposure to Dante’s poetry on a wide scale.

Earl Browder
Wanxiang and Ener1 share a vision to help fulfill our country’s strong commitment to electrifying transportation on a mass scale and to deploy lithium-ion technology to improve the effectiveness of the power grid.
Lu Guanqiu
Tesla has humiliated established carmakers with its brilliant vision. But Detroit, Turin, Stuttgart, and so on have understood scale as well as capital allocation for decades. Such gargantuan tasks could yet humiliate Tesla.
With the rapid growth of Internet users in China bringing online video into a new paradigm, the market scale we first envisioned as an online video website back in 2006 has grown significantly.
Growing up in Chicago, I was a theater nerd. That might be very cool on the East Coast, but in Chicago, it’s really the athletes that come in No. 1 on the cool scale. Maybe musicians after that. Community theater? That’s way down the list, my friend.
To me, mass media is when you are able to use a platform to reach an audience on a large, global scale, and I think YouTube has certainly achieved that and is still finding ways to bring a wider range of content to its audience.
I think the Winter Olympics are definitely on a smaller scale than the summer games, but with the inclusion of cool new sports like slope style skiing and snowboarding, it is going to breathe new life into them and attract a whole new crowd.
Nick Goepper

For an architectural project, I made a scale model of a shop out of gingerbread rather than foam and added icing and sweets very colourfully.
The most exciting part of what I do is understanding the scale of what we don’t know. There are just countless archaeological sites all over the world, and one of the most important and best ways of finding them is using digital technology.
Technology enables people to improve communication with unprecedented speed, scale and iterative testing. It also allows people to wreak chaos with high leverage.
I have grown up reading Marvel Comics and Marvel movies with their intricately woven storylines. It is fascinating to see how Marvel has created characters and stories that resonate so well with audiences across the globe, making movies at a scale that one had never before imagined.
When you scale up your business there will invariably be small groups of vested interests unwilling to see the new ground reality.
Power doesn’t have to be on such a big scale for powerful things to occur. Within your own home, you can be a powerful woman as a mother, influencing your children’s lives.

Richard Dormer
The ability to scale up is hard. So the best model for us is concentrated India, diversified financial services, and through this, we can get significant scale on an Indian platform.
All I do all day is think of ideas and implement them. That’s an industry, you know. I’m trying to make art on a commercial scale.

The reason the art world doesn’t respond to Kinkade is because none – not one – of his ideas about subject-matter, surface, color, composition, touch, scale, form, or skill is remotely original. They’re all cliche and already told.
Now the problem with standardized tests is that it’s based on the mistake that we can simply scale up the education of children like you would scale up making carburetors. And we can’t, because human beings are very different from motorcars, and they have feelings about what they do and motivations in doing it, or not.
Film is the toughest one for me, as there are many fingers in the pot, so it can be disappointing. However, to have your work seen on such a large scale, that’s a very exciting prospect.
I’m the kind of person, if I see something, like a funny video, I want to share it. With Twitter and Tumblr you can do that on a mass scale, and people get to know your personality.
The China Rich seem to be spending on a scale that’s just beyond anything we’ve ever seen before. They are building and buying an insane amount of luxury residences around the world, commissioning huge flying palaces from Boeing, and paying ridiculous amounts for art.
Scalability is this idea of coming up with a blockchain that can scale much larger than existing chains essentially by processing transactions in parallel. And moving away from this paradigm where every single node on the network has to process every single transaction.
We need to differentiate between commercial piracy – where criminal organisations produce illicit DVDs on a huge scale – and domestic, unauthorised filesharing, which may or may not be detrimental to overall sales.
Now it will take a long time to scale biofuels, but I’m the only one in the world forecasting oil dropping in price to $35 a barrel by 2030. I’ll put it on the record: Oil will not be able to compete with cellulosic biofuels. If you do it from food, the food will get so expensive you can’t make fuel out of it.
There was a very difficult time when a female hero was

There was a very difficult time when a female hero was a man in a woman’s body. ‘Hunger Games‘ really changed that: a woman leading a non-woman’s film in the action genre. I think ‘Wonder Woman‘ does that on a very big scale.
People can see that we are part of a tradition of absurd comedy, stretching from Spike Milligan and Peter Cook through to Monty Python and Vic Reeves. We’re not like Ricky Gervais’s hyper-real cringe comedy. We’re at the other end of the scale, but there’s room for the sillier stuff, too.
On the global scale, if there’s a shaky Middle East, there’s a shaky world.
It’s a good thing to remember that hiring will get easier as you scale – but you should also never drop your standards.
The medium is the message. This is merely to say that the personal and social consequences of any medium – that is, of any extension of ourselves – result from the new scale that is introduced into our affairs by each extension of ourselves, or by any new technology.
In high school and college, I’d set a bunch of goals for myself. I wanted to be the lead effects supervisor on one of these really big, innovative visual effects productions, something on the scale of a ‘Star Wars’ movie. And I wanted to work on a project that wins the Academy Award for best visual effects.
The premise and promise of Big Data is that there are no stories, only patterns; that the human preference for story is aligned with the human tendency for error; and that only through dislocations in scale – the scale of sample size and of time – will truth emerge.
On the scale of someone who’s really laid-back about stuff and someone who worries a lot, I fall more towards the latter.
The scale of the ISIS threat is not yet matched by a clarity of approach for securing their defeat.
People behave differently to TV stars and film stars; it’s to do with the scale of the medium. Film stars get hushed awe, TV stars get slapped on the back. Neither is good for you. Famous people don’t hear the word ‘no’ enough.
Over half of the traffic that flows over our networks is coming from video. As you think about a business that is going to be video centric and video focused, you want to have scale on the video programming side to be able to take advantage of this.
Randall L. Stephenson
Every man needs slaves like he needs clean air. To rule is to breathe, is it not? And even the most disenfranchised get to breathe. The lowest on the social scale have their spouses or their children.
Since 1988, I have been writing steadily. I did decide a couple of years or so ago to scale back to writing one book a year – a sort of semi-retirement. But I never did have much success with that plan!
Mary Balogh
Every time they came to power, the Congress engaged in large scale corruption. Even when they were in power, they did nothing to stop the hoarding of black money in offshore havens.
Yes, I’m having a baby. I think it’s so hard as a woman to give yourself a break. It’s great to be healthy but you have to set a good example for your kids and know that it’s not about a number on a scale but how you feel.
The way to really scale a venture firm is with software.
The moment something happens to one you love, it’s twenty times more intense. You experience pain and enlightenment on a much vaster scale.
Analog components don’t ‘scale’ as well as digital components, but integrating them into relatively mature 28 nm platforms will accelerate the connection of everything from watches, personal healthcare, and home appliances to automotive, transportation, agriculture, manufacturing, and industrial controls.
Fame freaks me out. Do you just wake up different? I don’t know how to scale it back if it gets too crazy.
Standing on the apex of our planet is humbling. I’m starved of oxygen, depleted of reserves, unable to eat, and bound by anxiety. This is a dangerous place. Yet the symbolism of standing on top of the world gives me a chance to experience time on a cosmic scale.
Thirty, 40 years ago, more than that now, even, the cook was certainly at the bottom of the social scale. And any mother would’ve wanted their child to marry a doctor, a lawyer, an architect, not a cook. Now, we are genius, it’s different.
I love to compare different time frames. Poetry can evoke the time of the subject. By a very careful choice of words you can evoke an era, completely throw the poem into a different time scale.
Marxism, Freudianism, global warming. These are proof – of which history offers so many examples – that people can be suckers on a grand scale. To their fanatical followers they are a substitute for religion. Global warming, in particular, is a creed, a faith, a dogma that has little to do with science.
The best value for money in cooking equipment, in my mind, is first a digital scale and digital thermometer. They’re both about $20. They help you cook so much more accurately that they’re both enormously valuable.
Whenever I heard the song of a bird and the answering call of its mate, I could visualize the notes in scale, all built up within my consciousness as a natural symphony.
William Christopher Handy
It is nice to be out there, amongst contemporaries on a global scale. You meet different people, see different things, meet different producers, eventually grow to collaborate in different ways. The world is getting smaller. It’s nice not to be insular.
Dropbox looks really simple to the end user and is extremely magical and just works. But under the hood, the complexity of the technology is huge. The amount of work it requires to store, scale and move this data is pretty intense.
Ruchi Sanghvi
We need to defend principles like democracy, freedom of speech, gender equality, and the rule of law through exemplifying these on a global scale, not through the same cynical, isolationist policies which have eroded these so-called ‘British’ values across the rest of the world.
The secret of a good life is to have the right loyalties and hold them in the right scale of values.
Norman Thomas
I do love doing action, but if I can balance the scale by doing other kinds of films that satisfy my creative ambitions, that feels really important.
If you only have 10 examples of something, it’s going to be hard to make deep learning work. If you have 100,000 things you care about, records or whatever, that’s the kind of scale where you should really start thinking about these kinds of techniques.
I have seen a lot of now-great companies at their earli

I have seen a lot of now-great companies at their earliest stages, and these early-stage startups are not built by the senior people who know how to run and scale big-company machines.
I am finally getting the chance to build large structures and break preconceptions that my designs are just sculptures for people to be in. But my work always comes down to the human scale.
I realized that filmmaking is an eminently scalable act. No matter how big or how small, there’s joys and stresses that will all scale themselves magnificently to fit the production.
The need for reflection and restraint of power is what led Louis Freeh to order that all new agent classes visit the Holocaust Museum here in Washington so they could see and feel and hear in a palpable way the consequences of abuse of power on a massive, almost unimaginable scale.
I took a very small image and blew it up to enormous scale. What happens when you do that is that the information in the image starts to become indistinct. The image darkens.
I do think entrepreneurs need to be smart, but there’s another scale I never evaluated myself on that is now the source of my deepest strength: Not how much brains I have, but how much love I have.
I’d worked in TV for a number of years before Strictly,’ doing kids’ telly and a couple of Saturday-night shows, but nothing on that scale.
We do expect there will be some big centralised miners that will have a lots of storage and economies of scale. But there will also be a large cloud of small miners all over the world.
Juan Benet
The modern form of things had begun to appeal to me, also (as material for satire) politics, and the lives of the great and little, high up in the social scale.
Needless to say, anybody who can stumble through a C-major scale knows that Art Tatum always gave his audiences 10 times their money’s worth.
It’s a really paradoxical thing. We want to think big, but start small. And then scale fast. People think about trying to build the next Facebook as trying to start where Facebook is today, as a major global presence.
On a scale personal enough to be felt by all, but big enough to be symbolic, the two irreconcilable faiths of our timeCommunism and Freedom – came to grips in the persons of two conscious and resolute men.
Thus I was able to make pioneering measurements of the height and physical scale of plasma clouds in the ionosphere and also to estimate wind speeds in this region.
Antony Hewish
The scale of ‘Independence Day’ is much more than ‘Stargate.’
The president’s very right about one thing: When you have a disaster of that scale, whether it be natural or a terrorist attack, there’s only one part of our entire government, state or local, that is equipped to handle it, and that’s the U.S. military.
Warren Rudman
My MELD score was pretty high. And the worse you get on that scale, the sooner you get a transplant. It’s based on how sick you are. And believe me, I was pretty sick.
Pat Summerall
There is still need to think and plan, but on a different scale, and along different lines.
C. S. Forester
There’s nothing like sitting in a completely quiet room, and then the strings start up. It’s like when you go to the cinema – the first two or three minutes of any film are amazing. Because the screen is so big. The scale. Directors can pretty much do anything for those first few minutes.
I think what a lot of action movies lose these days, especially the ones that deal with fantasy, is you stop caring at some point because you’ve lost human scale.
Almost every way we make electricity today, except for the emerging renewables and nuclear, puts out CO2. And so, what we’re going to have to do at a global scale, is create a new system. And so, we need energy miracles.
Now all we need is to continue to speak the truth fearlessly, and we shall add to our number those who will turn the scale to the side of equal and full justice in all things.
Lucy Stone
I did grow up in France, and even though I didn’t go to the school or dance with the Paris Opera Ballet, I absorbed similar ideas in my training. I understand the scale of a big company. I danced for one for almost 20 years.
