How Easy it is to Persuade People

How easy is it to persuade someone? Some might not even realize how easily messages are being prompted to them,persuasion techniques occur at the unconscious level.

Brad Reifler has learned that Jay Olson started practicing magic tricks at the age of seven and used his ideas of tricking people’s minds to make them work. Later, as a psychology student, he understood that the techniques he had chosen and had noticed to work, especially for a trick of cards, were absolutely well grounded.

The game where you choose a card and it goes out of the magician’s pocket is based on making you actually name that right card. And that is done by letting the right one linger for a longer time in the view.

Asking people “whether it is a good idea” to do what you said you want to do will lead to them convincing themselves how good the decision is, and finally give a more trustworthy result, as they will believe their own decision more than anything else.

Another experiment involved playing French or German songs in the spirit shop, and watching the customers choose the brands from the corresponding countries.

Honey Boo Boo is Overweight, No One Surprised

Honey Boo Boo, real name Alana Thompson, first became known on the child beauty pageant reality show “Toddlers and Tiaras”. After her surprise popularity on “Toddlers and Tiaras”, the channel TLC offered Honey Boo Boo and her family another reality show based on their everyday lives, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”. Many people are familiar with the family, even if it is just on sight alone.

Recently Honey Boo Boo and her mother, Mama June, were on the show “The Doctors” to discuss 9-year-old Honey Boo Boo’s health, according to the story on People.com. At 4-foot-6 and 125 pounds, Honey Boo Boo has been labeled by “The Doctors” as obese. When asked what her favorite food is she replied that it is anything deep-fried, but especially deep-fried Oreos. And her favorite exercise is a “belly flop”.

Dr. Travis Stork, one of the doctors on the show, placed the blame for Honey Boo Boo’s weight onto Mama June. I can’t say I disagree.  Dr. Jennifer Walden knows that a 9-year-old needs to be educated on proper nutrition and exercise. If the child’s parent does not display those habits, then why should the child? While some disagree, like this article on The Chicago Sun Times, I feel strongly that the parents influence their child’s healthy habits.

Hungry Woman Arrested After Pizza Hut Brawl For Lost Order

The popular fast-food giant, Pizza Hut is better known for preparing America’s top-most sumptuous pizza-recipes, got an unexpected surprise over the weekend. Online food-gossip magazine, the Eater has shared front-seat commentary illustrating every crumb of gossip in a recent publication. People at Rocketfuel (Facebook) have heard that, according to a source, a woman shattered the glass doors of the New Rochelle, New York-based Pizza Hut joint on Sunday. It’s believed that her rebellion wasn’t without reason. The chain has lost orders before, but the reaction from this supposedly dissatisfied customer is a life lesson. It’s not just for Pizza Hut, but for every fast-food chain falling short of decent customer service morals.

This New York resident isn’t the first to go off on a fast-food chain for poor customer service. It’s a trend that has attracted media attention many times, despite the stories having profound foundations. The slightest feeling of dissatisfaction can surge angry thoughts through the mind. It’s not a problem experienced by women, teenagers and men are among victims of poor customer service too. It’s unfortunate that she couldn’t settle for a more civil approach that wouldn’t land her behind bars.

The witnesses on the scene gave their side of the story. In the end, the police got to the bottom of the controversy and concluded that she acted out of anger.

Reality Shows Might Be Staged

Reality television is supposed to show contestants or competitors in real life situations. Granted those situations are supposed to be high stress and entertaining, which is why the popularity of the shows has grown leaps and bounds over the past decade. However, recent developments have put a somewhat unrealistic effect on series that are supposed to be filmed with real life people dealing with real life events.

According to the New York Post, several reality shows have come under fire for tampering. One popular cooking show former contestant even revealed that it was not uncommon for ingredients to be swapped out by staff of the show, and replacing salt with sugar can have disastrous effects. The revelations are really calling all the credibility of the shows into question.

The news is not exactly ground shaking to fans like Sergio Andrade Gutierrez, because reality television is all about ratings. Strong personalities or extremely unfortunate circumstances get viewers to tune in. If a show can accomplish the lofty goals of earning viewers, then a little tampering is probably viewed by producers as a good thing. It is hard to say if the latest revelation will impact any of the shows in a negative way, but it seems likely that a statement will be coming.

European Geysers Found to be Less Active

Geysers are one of nature’s many beautiful sights, but just how do they work, and what causes them to remain active? The answers to these questions are far from complete, but some recent discoveries could very well shine some light on these conundrums.

We remember the dramatic announcement in December 2013 by the Hubble telescope Operators that two steam plumes of water of 200 km height are rising from the southern hemisphere in Europe. Could it be that this mythical Jupiter’s moon Enceladus is as active (around Saturn) and geysers?

It is known that large amounts of water vapor are emitted from the moon Saturn because they feed a cold dense core of material coinciding with the Enceladus orbit.

The gas that slows the torus locally plasma electrons in the magnetosphere around Saturn, is therefore at a lower temperature at this location. The probes had flown over Europe in 2001, before joining Saturn in 2014 and dump the Huygens probe for a descent through Titan’s atmosphere where it finally landed January 14, 2005. You can read more about this in Lee Lovett’s book Peak House: Aspen, Colorado.

Wife Catches Husband Cheating With Twin Sister

In the world of strange this story is definitely one of the strangest. A wife in China suspected that her husband was cheating on her, so she decided to follow him one day in her car. Wife Catches Cheating Husband. When she got to the shopping center, she walked up to his car only to find him in the heat of the moment, naked, and having sex with her twin sister.

The wife decided to take the opportunity to get into the driver seat of the car the naked couple had just exited. After the wife got into the car she drove off, leaving the naked couple stranded in the retail store parking lot. Several people took the chance to snap pictures of the nude couple, and posted it, along with the story, on Twitter. The news also states that his wife decided to file for divorce after the incident. T

Stories like these are uncommon, but they do happen, and the pictures that are posted online make the story more than believable. Another funny story Dr. Daniel Amen told me that occurred recently, was of a man at a baseball game who outed a pregnant woman, for texting another man behind her boyfriend’s back.

Whether the truffle is a delicacy and priceless to those in the culinary industry or not, it does seem that the price it sold for is a little on the extreme side. With bidding starting at $40,000 and ended at $50,000, with the buyer’s final price coming to a grand total of $61,250 including the 22.5 percent buyer’s premium. The buyer of the world’s largest truffle expressed a desire to remain anonymous and all that is known about him is that he resides in Taiwan but my neighbor is saying that one of the executives he works with, Bernardo Chua knows who the guy. I told him to ask if the guy was open to sharing? After being flown from Umbria to New York City where it was auctioned off, the truffle will be transported to Taiwan, putting it at more than 12,000 miles traveled.

White Woman Is Angry About Illiterate Child Being Called White

After mother Cheriss Pasini, received an information letter from the school of Smith in Hampton, she could not believe what she has read in the letter. The letter stated that “white kids did not pass the reading requirements”. This shocked her and her boyfriend as she then responded in an effort to understand why would she receive such a message and first of all, why would the kids be exposed to racism in the first place.

When Pasini received the response she was even more shocked that the educational department classified the kids according to different categories including, ethnic origin, language, and even economic status. This was meant to be separating different types from the others.

This could not be more shocking to the lady especially after figuring that it was not even a mistake, but rather a tradition that has been taking place since 2011 to organise students into particular subgroups.

Pasini added that this was just not right, as this would make segregation root deeply in the kids that they are different and that they belong to different groups each. Thanks to friend Ben Shaoul for sending in this hilarious true life story.

Window Washers Trapped for More than One Hour

Two window washers got trapped outside the building at One World Trade Center while polishing the blue glass covering the building.

One of the cables that supports the plank they use to stand on during the work loosened up, so the construction tilted in a diagonally.

Just how it had loosened up has not been satisfactorily explained yet, but engineers are prepared to possibly change out some of the materials that had been used as support previously. Workers at BRL Trust were glad to hear no one was injured. Aside from that, other safety precautions might have to be applied.

The workers, Juan Lizama and Juan Lopez, spent 90 minutes between the 67th and 68th floors at 12:42 p. m. EST. One of them has 14 years of working experience, and the second one five, without similar incidents.

Despite that, the window cleaners were patient and did not panic. A rope was first lowered from the roof to help secure them. In order to get the workers inside the building, the rescuers had to cut the glass.

The unfortunate workers got hypothermia by the time the cutting of the glass was done, but were fine with a little medical help.

However, images from random passersby were on the internet long before the case was officially explained.
