Fake News

Submitted by ub on Thu, 04/19/2018 - 00:20

Fake news undermines serious media coverage and makes it more difficult for journalists to cover significant news stories. The research finds the top 20 fake news stories on the 2016 presidential elections received more engagement on Facebook than the top 20 news stories on the election from 19 major media outlets. Anonymously-hosted fake news websites lacking known publishers have also been criticized because they make it difficult to prosecute sources of fake news for libel.

More important than IQ, Emotional intelligence allows us to identify and manage our own emotions and the emotions of others.

EI is generally said to include three skills: emotional awareness; the ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problem solving; and the ability to manage emotions, which includes regulating your own emotions and cheering up or calming down other people. Emotional Intelligence matters more than IQ

Just Say NO

Submitted by ub on Sun, 04/15/2018 - 16:06

NOPE is the finite word and, you should be prioritizing it. Saying yes is the fastest way to burn yourself out. Just Say NO

1. Use the word NO
Not, ‘Not at this time’, not ‘I don’t think so’, not ‘I’m not sure’, not ‘Maybe next time’. The word NO is a powerful thing. Use it if you are absolute, unequivocally sure that there is no other answer. And don't apologize for saying it. If need be, practice saying the word until it loses its power over you. Repeat it NO, No, no...etc.

2. Another alternative.

Has POTUS become the opposite of Robin Hood by completely revamping USA's social safety net? After cutting taxes for the rich, is he now targeting recipients of Medicaid, Food Stamps and Housing Assistance?

He is reportedly doing so through executive order, which has quietly flown under the radar that cuts the Departments of Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Agriculture, as well as directs other federal agencies to cut benefits.
