Abstract: In part 1, a construction of Rips is modified so that it produces a CAT group instead of a smallcancellation group. Thus, many of the applications of Rips' construction to smallcancellation groups may be applied to CAT groups as well. Part 2 offers a simple way of producing incoherent groups.
