Conjuring presentation magic for Halloween

The Presenter's Blog

Tennessee Williams spoke for audiences worldwide in “A Streetcar Named Desire” when he wrote the words: “I don’t want realism. Halloween. Time for stories, and for magic. Let’s talk of magic, and illusion. This Halloween, as little witches and wizards bearing bags begging candy come up to your door, reflect on the thought that every time we take to the stage as presenters, we too join a world of magic and illusion.

Glenn Reynolds - He, of all people, should have known better

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

He is a law professor at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and a columnist published in media outlets such as USA Today. Protest is a sacred right in America. Sure, sometimes those push-backs can get out of hand. Among the early ones to turn violent was the Boston Tea Party by the American colonists. More recently, the protest against the alleged police abuse in Charlotte, North Carolina also became ugly. Already one man has died.

Speak Schmeak

Yesterday Pat Summitt, long-time coach of the Tennessee Lady Vols, became the first Division I basketball coach -- male or female -- to reach 1,000 victories. She's won eight national championships in her 35-year career at Tennessee. In 1976, she played on the first U.S. women's Olympic basketball team. Only two coaches have come anywhere near her 1,000 wins: Bob Knight with 902 and Jody Conradt with 900 -- both retired.

This method of dealing with a problem or chronic stress within a group living together has become contagious.  Then, she died of a self-inflicted shot gun wound.

Blue Jasmine Replaces Blanche DuBoise as Symbol for Outsized Delusion

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

 Tennessee Williams' character Blanche DuBoise from "A Streetcar Named Desire" belonged to a different time. The flamboyant, outsized, self-destructive deluded female is everywhere.  But until Woody Allen gave us the character Jasmine in "Blue Jasmine," we usually had to milk our memory bank to connect the dots.  It took that for us to decide and write off so-and-so as that sort of nuisance.

NCAA Football program uses PowerPoint

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

I found this article (at [link] ) that shares how the University of Tennessee football players find that they have been able to absorb their playbook quicker because of the PowerPoint slides that the coaches have used. I haven’t seen these slides, but I think we can probably make a couple of observations. First, PowerPoint is only one tool to use when teaching a new skill. It is quite obvious in football that practicing what is taught is essential.

The Eloquent Woman

Victoria and her sister Tennessee became the first woman stockbrokers on Wall Street, after a stint as spiritual advisers to Cornelius Vanderbilt. Victoria Woodhull led a fascinating life, without a doubt. Her father, a snake oil salesman in the 1840s, soon put his young daughter to work as a fortune teller. She married an alcoholic at age 14 or 15--a devastating experience that probably fueled her later thoughts on marriage.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

So, of course, in today's speech in Tennessee he focused on terrorism. Donald Trump knows to keep his public speaking topical. That issue has catapulted to number-one since the Paris massacre Friday. During his speech, Trump took credit for sensing in 2000 that there will be a major attack on U.S. Sure enough there was one in 2001. And he framed the issue of whether to give sanctuary to Syrian refugees as a possible "Trojan Horse."
