[hoodie] Easier in the Morning

Postby hoodie » Tue Feb 26, 2019 12:30 am

Because it is afternoon, John must deliver his document to three different people. If it were morning, he could have delivered it to just one.

Are all three in the same general location (e.g. same building)? Same organization? Business? Government? Military?

Is he giving them copies of the document? Are they signing it? Does he deliver documents like this regularly?

If it were morning, would the other two people be unavailable? Would the one person have more authority?

John = HAM?

So are there 3 documents? Just one? If the former, can he give the 3 documents to 1 person in the morning who will give them to the other 2? Is the person to which he could give the documents in the morning part of the group of 3 people to which he delivers in the afternoon?

Did something happen between morning and afternoon? Someone was born? Someone died? Someone moving? Someone having his birthday and entering legal age? Siamese twins relevant?

Are timetables relevant? Like until noon he could deliver to one and from noon on he could not? From 1 p.m. to one person? Relevant? Did he know in advance (e.g. the day before) that he should have delivered to more than one person in the afternoon? If so, that he had to deliver to 3 people precisely? Are admissions relevant? Are decisions been taken between morning and afternoon relevant (e.g. the firm fired one person in the morning and he needed to deliver the letter, but then other 2 were fired)? Are natural disasters/ boundaries relevant?

Did he deliver the documents personally? Are signatures relevant? Are the documents personal (containing personal data...)?

Hobbsicle:

Are all three in the same general location (e.g. same building)? Yes Same organization? Business? this Government? Military?

Is he giving them copies of the document? Yes Are they signing it? No Does he deliver documents like this regularly? I am going to interpret "like this" to mean, documents of the same general nature. The answer is yes.

If it were morning, would the other two people be unavailable? No Would the one person have more authority? No


Earnest:


John = HAM? Yes

So are there 3 documents? Just one? 3 copies of one document. If the former, can he give the 3 documents to 1 person in the morning who will give them to the other 2? Is the person to which he could give the documents in the morning part of the group of 3 people to which he delivers in the afternoon? NO!

Did something happen between morning and afternoon? Yes Someone was born? Someone died? Someone moving? Someone having his birthday and entering legal age? Siamese twins relevant? None of these.

Are timetables relevant? Yes. Like until noon he could deliver to one and from noon on he could not? this. From 1 p.m. to one person? Relevant? Did he know in advance (e.g. the day before) that he should have delivered to more than one person in the afternoon? Not necessarily. He could have found out the same day. If so, that he had to deliver to 3 people precisely? He knew he had to deliver to 3 people. Are admissions relevant? No. Are decisions been taken between morning and afternoon relevant (e.g. the firm fired one person in the morning and he needed to deliver the letter, but then other 2 were fired)? No Are natural disasters/ boundaries relevant? No.

Did he deliver the documents personally? Irrelevant. Are signatures relevant? No. Are the documents personal (containing personal data...)? No.

So 3 copies of 1 document to 3 different people in the afternoon and 1 copy of the same document to 1 person not belonging to the group of 3 in the morning right?

Are the 3 people related? Co workers? Friends? Are they a family? Strangers? Are they related by something that happened(e.g. an accident)? Is the 1 of the morning related to the other 3? Is the chief of the other 3?
Is death penalty relevant? Inheritance? Someone's death relevant? If so of one of the 4? The one in the morning?

Document = purchasing relevant? Bills? Receipts? Official documents? Related to the death of someone? Letters?

Are the 3 people related? Co workers? this Friends? Are they a family? Strangers? Are they related by something that happened(e.g. an accident)?

Is the 1 of the morning related to the other 3? Also a co-worker Is the chief of the other 3? No.
Is death penalty relevant? Inheritance? Someone's death relevant? None of these. If so of one of the 4? The one in the morning?

Document = purchasing relevant? Bills? Receipts? Official documents? Related to the death of someone? Letters? None of these.

Point of clarification: I know there is some variation in how the word "document" is defined. I am going with the Wikipedia definition: "A document is a written, drawn, presented, or memorialized representation of thought."

If he had delivered it in the morning, would the three people eventually have ended up with copies of the document?
Will the three people read the document? If he had delivered it in the morning, would the one person have read the document?

So it is not an official document right? It is more like a letter/ an order?

Are turns relevant? (E.g. in the morning there was the one in charge to receive letters/documents and deliver it to other co-workers?) Would the one in the morning make copies of the document? Is the fact of being co-workers relevant for: place of delivery? Turns?
Did they work in deliveries business as well? (E.g. they deliver flours? Pizzas?...)
Is the one that has to deliver the document a co-worker as well? Can we consider them all HAMs or HAFs?

Is the place of delivery the same in the morning and in the afternoon? The place of work? If so, is the person to which he could have delivered in the morning (can we call him A?) present in the same place of the other 3 both in the afternoon and in the morning? Would the puzzle change if she is? Same question In the morning alone and in the afternoon alone. Are airplanes relevant? Departures?

Guess: did he know precisely to who deliver the document in the afternoon? Did he deliver to 3 people just because he did not know the precise person to which he had to deliver (e.g. he knew just the last name eho belonged to 3 different people)? Can we assume he delivered the same exact document to the 3? Or maybe different parts of it to each one?
Had he delivered the document to just one of the 3 in the afternoon would it have been: unfair? Insufficient?
Would the puzzle work if he delivered to just one of the 3 in the afternoon and he honestly and without mistakes communicates the content to the other 2?

Had the 3 not the same authority/role of the one in the morning? Is the document published/share/spread among other collegues? Did the one in the morning see the document after it has been delivered to the 3? If so the next day?

Relevant the content of the document? Are these kind of documents common in their job? Are letters to Juliet/Santa relevant? Is the content: romantic? Order from the above? Thought about the service provided by them? An order of a client? News? Advertisement? Can the document be considered "personal"? Confidencial? Top secret? Military relevant? News reading?

Their job: relevant: army? Restaurant? Bank? Office? Clothing? Hotel? Cars? Means of transport? Internet? Technology? News? TV? Food? Police?

Earnest:

So it is not an official document right? I would not describe it as an "official document". It is more like a letter/ an order? Not this either. It is a written work

Are turns relevant? (E.g. in the morning there was the one in charge to receive letters/documents and deliver it to other co-workers?) I assume you are using the word "turns" to be synonymous with "shifts". And yes, shifts are very relevant, although your e.g. is not correct. Would the one in the morning make copies of the document? No. Is the fact of being co-workers relevant for: place of delivery? Turns? this
Did they work in deliveries business as well? (E.g. they deliver flours? Pizzas?...) No.
Is the one that has to deliver the document a co-worker as well? Yes. Can we consider them all HAMs or HAFs? Yes, any combination of these.

Is the place of delivery the same in the morning and in the afternoon? Irrelevant.The place of work? Yes. If so, is the person to which he could have delivered in the morning (can we call him A?) present in the same place of the other 3 both in the afternoon and in the morning? Only in the morning. Would the puzzle change if she is? Yes. Same question In the morning alone and in the afternoon alone. Are airplanes relevant? No. Departures?

Guess: did he know precisely to who deliver the document in the afternoon? Yes. Did he deliver to 3 people just because he did not know the precise person to which he had to deliver (e.g. he knew just the last name eho belonged to 3 different people)? No. Can we assume he delivered the same exact document to the 3? Or maybe different parts of it to each one? In crafting the puzzle, I assumed the former, but the latter would also work.
Had he delivered the document to just one of the 3 in the afternoon would it have been: unfair? Insufficient? this.
Would the puzzle work if he delivered to just one of the 3 in the afternoon and he honestly and without mistakes communicates the content to the other 2? All three require content from the document. It could be delivered via hard copy or soft copy via e-mail. I assumed hard copy for this puzzle, but it would work either way.

Had the 3 not the same authority/role of the one in the morning? Same role, no difference in authority. Is the document published/share/spread among other collegues? Intended for publication. Did the one in the morning see the document after it has been delivered to the 3? Not necessarily. If so the next day?

Relevant the content of the document? Yes! Are these kind of documents common in their job? Yes. Are letters to Juliet/Santa relevant? No. Is the content: romantic? Order from the above? Thought about the service provided by them? An order of a client? News? this-ish Advertisement? Can the document be considered "personal"? Confidencial? Top secret? Military relevant? News reading? this is closest.

Their job: relevant: Yes army? Restaurant? Bank? Office? Clothing? Hotel? Cars? Means of transport? Internet? Technology? News? TV? Food? Police? The words "Internet", "News", and "TV" are all associated with their profession.

Are they in the media? Is the document a press release? A news bulletin?

Does John deliver the document to the three people all at once? One at a time?
Is the delivery by hand? Through email?
Will the document be read out loud? Will it be copied?

I apologize for the delay in my reply! Won't happen again. :)

Balin:

Is the delivery by hand? Through email? Either way works.
Will the document be read out loud? Irrelevant Will it be copied? No.

GalFisk:

Will the contents be broadcast? No. Copied? Reprinted? Published.

Just to make sure: Do all four recipients--one in the morning or three in the afternoon--have the exact same job?

Did John originally write the document? Was John editing the document? Will the 3 recipients edit the document? Publish it? If it were morning, would the 1 recipient have done the same thing the 3 recipients will do?

Is the document an article? If so, for a print newspaper? An online media outlet? Does the outlet have specific times it publishes? Does an extra step have to be taken if the outlet has already published that day?

Disability relevant? Translation?

I don't think this was asked yet: Would this be true of any day that he wrote one of this type of document? is it only on this particular day that it's one in the morning, three in the afternoon? Is this the first day that it will be three people instead of one, and noon was the switch-over?

Did he write a news article? On an event? A profile of a person? Sports? A review?
Is it an advertisement? Column? Advice column? Opinion? Cartoon? Obituary?

It's an article for publication, but I would say none of the above fits perfectly.

Was the 1 morning person relevantly fired? Moved to a different job? Was it discovered that he was doing the job incorrectly? That his editing was inadequate?

Is there a relevant change in law? Or in the news outlet's editing guidelines?

Will the 3 afternoon people be editing the same way? Will they each be editing for different errors/issues? Will they be editing for three different audiences? Will one edited version of his article be published? Or three? If one, will the edits of the 3 people be combined?

Does John's article deal with politics? Is it a survey or poll? Something else with an interactive element? A brainteaser/puzzle of any kind? Is it local to any specific area? e.g., about a particular business or restaurant?

The three are going to edit the document? Are they also going to anchor a news program? Wis the document going to be passed along to be read by other people? Is the document being translated into different languages? Sent out to affiliates? Is it perhaps being skewed so that it will present a right-wing, centrist, and left-wing viewpoint for release with different organizations?

Or in the news outlet's editing guidelines? No to all. As a helpful reminder, it has already been established that shifts are relevant.

*** RECAP ***

It has been established that:

-John has written an article for publication.
-The person in the morning that he could have delivered it to has the same job role as the three people he delivered it to in the afternoon. They are editors.
-Work shifts are relevant
-The words "Internet", "TV", and "News" are all keywords associated with the business they are in.

But after noon on this day is the first time it will be three people instead of one, right? Or will it be back to one tomorrow morning?
Is the relevant work shift John's? That of the person who would have edited in the morning? That of one of the three? Is one of the three people filling in the next shift for the one morning person? Does John fill in the morning shift for one of the three? Or the afternoon shift for the one?
Is it relevant how long a person has already been working their shift as to whether they can edit or not?
Does someone relevantly read their online publication before their shift? Or after?

Is what John writes creative writing of any kind? An advertisement? A slogan or catchphrase? Is it the astrological horoscope?
