(I thought that maybe they meant Rod Gilbert, the famous retired New York Ranger, but no.  Rob Gilbert is an expert on sports psychology and athletic motivation.  For me, it would have worked either way.  Do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Necessary bureaucracy to prevent sub-standard, and unsafe, structures.

EUNQE  =  QUEEN,  PTOEM  =  TEMPO,  FPTIRO  =  PROFIT,  DNICTU  =  INDUCT   —   Giving us:  EENTMOPRTIDT

Clue/Question:  Starting construction without the proper paperwork was . . .

Answer:  NOT PERMITTED

(Good way to end the work week!  Everything was well-scrambled.  No giveaways.  I thought both “profit” and “induct” were fairly challenging.  As is so often the case with these Jumbles, it’s what isn’t said that is often the biggest clue.  Most people know that contractors are required a “building permit” before starting construction.  The guys danced around this by calling it “the proper paperwork”.  It’s like what I try to tell you guys about watching the news these days.  You have to listen for/be aware of what they’re NOT saying, as much as what they are saying.  Keep this in mind and you’ll be a better Jumble solver and, if not better informed, at least a more conscious citizen.  What we don’t know can hurt us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
