The KALI project

Apparently research has shown that studies with acronyms (ALLHAT, NHANES, etc.) are more likely to get published. Well, I have a tentative title / acronym for my study: The KALI (Knowledge and Attitudes of Labor Interventions) Project.

Kali is a Hindu goddess with a complex history. According to Exotic India:

“Kali’s nudity has a similar meaning. In many instances she is described as garbed in space or sky clad. In her absolute, primordial nakedness she is free from all covering of illusion. She is Nature (Prakriti in Sanskrit), stripped of ‘clothes’. It symbolizes that she is completely beyond name and form, completely beyond the illusory effects of maya (false consciousness). Her nudity is said to represent totally illumined consciousness, unaffected by maya. Kali is the bright fire of truth, which cannot be hidden by the clothes of ignorance. Such truth simply burns them away. “

Sounds perfect to me!
