Chaotic Resolve is the fourth album by Christian singer Plumb which features the songs, "I Can't Do This", "Better", "Bittersweet", "Blush" and "Cut". It also features a remake of Michael W. Smith's song "Pray For Me" and an extended remix of "Damaged" as bonus tracks.

"Better" (Japanese:ベター) is the second Japanese single by South Korean entertainer Kim Hyung-jun, after "Long Night". It was released on November 19, 2014 on the Swave E&T label. The single was also released on DVD.
Background and development
Before "Better"'s release, Kim was active in Japan in 2013 with the release of "Always Love You" (featuring K-pop vocalist Kota) and in 2011 with the release of "Long Night". During the first half of 2014 he focused on his acting career, appearing on the television series Melody of Love, and gave concerts in South Korea and abroad.
In the second half of the year, Kim prepared for the Japanese release of "Better" with diet and exercise.
The song, a combination of hip hop, rap and rhythm and blues, features Baby-J and Park Eun-young and was produced by Han Sang Won.
Release and promotion
On October 10 Kim began a three-day Endless Story tour, organized by the Swave E&T label to promote his upcoming single, in Tokyo and Nagoya. In addition to performing "Better", he introduced its music video before its release. According to a spokesperson, the tour "confirm[ed] Kim Hyung Jun's unchanged popularity" and "[Kim] will gain even more fans after releasing his new single in November".
In mechanics, compression is the application of balanced inward ("pushing") forces to different points on a material or structure, that is, forces with no net sum or torque directed so as to reduce its size in one or more directions. It is contrasted with tension or traction, the application of balanced outward ("pulling") forces; and with shearing forces, directed so as to displace layers of the material parallel to each other. The compressive strength of materials and structures is an important engineering consideration.
In uniaxial compression the forces are directed along one direction only, so that they act towards decreasing the object's length along that direction. The compressive forces may also be applied in multiple directions; for example inwards along the edges of a plate or all over the side surface of a cylinder, so as to reduce its area (biaxial compression), or inwards over the entire surface of a body, so as to reduce its volume.
Technically, a material is under a state of compression, at some specific point and along a specific direction , if the normal component of the stress vector across a surface with normal direction is directed opposite to . If the stress vector itself is opposite to , the material is said to be under normal compression or pure compressive stress along . In a solid, the amount of compression generally depends on the direction , and the material may be under compression along some directions but under traction along others. If the stress vector is purely compressive and has the same magnitude for all directions, the material is said to be under isotropic or hydrostatic compression at that point. This is the only type of static compression that liquids and gases can bear.
