Drudge Report - Matthew Upstages Hillary

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

As we settle into the weekend, the Drudge Report has veered away from headlining with Hillary. Instead, monster hurricane Matthew is the flashing blue light special, only without the flashing blue light. That has been absent for years. But not in the Drudge Report's early fans' memory. Acts of nature trump the activities of politicos in clickbaitville. The shrewd media tycoons operating the Drudge Report know that.

Reddit: Barack Obama does it again with social media

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Again, Barack Obama upstaged whatever the GOP was up to with social media. His participation in Reddit's Ask Me Anything was sheer genius.    We were bug-eyed paying attention to the questions asked, the ones he selected to answer, and how he answered them. Meanwhile the fat guy, the stiff money man, and the lovebirdy wife seemed like yesterday's people in Tampa. Obama's survival instinct might be that he's open to fresh approaches.

How is emotional manipulation a bad thing?

More than PowerPoint...

” The showmanship upstaged the story. For a public speaking exercise, I ask students to tell a 2-3 minute story in front of the class. I also hand out a stack of simple evaluation sheets to the class — students anonymously rate the speaker’s storytelling skills, vocal skills, body language, and story value from 1-5. I also leave a brief space for written comments. In one class session, a particular student was a clear standout.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

That pandemic has upstaged politics per se. World on Edge. Panic after Travel Ban. Escape from Europe. Norway Shut Country. Fauci: System "Failing" Fed Pumps Another $1 Trillion.

Personal power and body language - part 7 in decoding body language

Public Speaking Advice and Commentary

Those in the room who wanted to express their subservience to the CEO unconsciously sank lower and lower in order not to upstage the boss. The story of power in a room is written in space and height.   It’s not very different from what pack dogs do, in fact. Look for the alpha dog. He or she will be the highest person in the room if at all possible. It’s why kings and queens have had thrones on daises since they began ruling others.
