Look for Every Opportunity to Reduce Uncertainty
In physics, Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle had a profound influence on science and eventually earned him a Nobel prize. This principle states that, even though it is scientifically possible to determine exactly how a class of particles will behave in general, it is not possible to predict exactly which of those particles will behave that way specifically. As a re-sult, there always exists a degree of uncertainty in physics, no matter how sound the general theory.

While this three-letter word is useful as a conjunction for connecting clauses in everyday speaking and writing, we often use it in a way we do not intend.
