Home Insync Pulse Pulse oi-Syeda Farah By Syeda Farah Noor on November 11, 2016 In this century, most of us do not think that "finding predictions" is the best way to understand what the future will bring to us. But, the ones who believe in the power of foresight know that it does come true to some extent. "Baba Vanga", the blind Bulgarian mystic woman, who predicted 9/11 and the rise of ISIS has bad news for Donald Trump! This old woman is commonly known as 'Nostradamus of the Balkans'. She had also predicted Obama's victory. Also Read: A Woman Who Gets 50 Orgasms Every Day!! She had predicted that Obama who became the 44th President would be the last President of the USA. This leaves us all confused as to what exactly she meant! About Obama, she had predicted that he would leave his post in such a bad condition as equivalent to a civil war in the country! Now with such prediction about him being the last President of the USA, it is making us even more curious as to what … [Read more...] about Blind Woman Has Bad News For Donald Trump
Source: Wikimedia February 24, 2016 Last week, I was called in for Jury Duty. About 50 of us listened to the judge’s instructions, and watched as the defendant, a black man with dreadlocks and wearing a suit, walked into the courtroom and took his seat. The judge informed us that the man had been charged with making threats and carrying a concealed weapon. Interestingly, the judge also said that there had been no evidence found for that weapon. About half of our group was called into the jury box, sworn in, and questioned to be potentially impaneled on the jury for the case in the misdemeanor charge. Both the prosecuting and defense attorneys were African American, and they probed for any biases against either the defendant or the police who would be the only witnesses. About a third of the potential jurors said they had either been assaulted or threatened, and a quarter of these said that either they or their close friends had been … [Read more...] about Donald Trump Should Be Charged With a Crime!
Martin Luther King. Steve Jobs. John F. Kennedy. Winston Churchill. Fine examples of politicians, leaders, business men that many would claim were very charismatic public speakers. But what is it that makes someone be perceived as charismatic? Research suggests it’s not only about what you say, but equally well about how you say it. For instance, one’s pausing behavior, speech rate, overall intensity, disfluency use, and timbre all contribute towards perceived charisma. In a previous post from 2016, I wrote about the speech characteristics of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton during the three national TV debates before the presidential elections in 2016. That analysis focused on the speakers’ timing: how much rhythm is there in their spoken utterances? Published results indicated that Hillary Clinton spoke with a more regular rhythm (compared to Trump), even with a specific preference for a three-beats-per-second syllable rhythm. Carefully timing your speech is known … [Read more...] about Here’s How Trump Can Boost His Charisma
Source: Wikipedia Donald Trump looks very likely to become the standard bearer for the GOP in November’s presidential election. I’ve found it interesting and noteworthy that he uses the word “disgusting” frequently, and this has only ramped up since Jimmy Kimmel’s bit way back in July, 2015. In several rallies, Trump has said, to applause, “Maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.” What is the science and psychology of “disgust” as an emotion? Could this be a red flag in a political leader? What is the danger of disgust? Does disgust make us think a leader is “authentic”? What’s the danger in that? Daniel Kelly, Associate Professor of Psychology at Purdue, author of Yuck!: The Nature and Moral Significance of Disgust was interviewed by Salon in 2011. He pointed out that the emotion of disgust is triggered by things we … [Read more...] about Trump’s Language: Psychology, Politics & Danger of Disgust
Source: Wikimedia commons Update 2/19/17: I was interviewed by the BBC's Sunday Sequence about this article. “Compassion for Trump” seems like the title of a humor article, something by The New Yorker’s Andy Borowitz. “Compassion for Trump–Doctors Announces Transplant Plans!” Compassion for the man whose great belch of ire and self-aggrandizement has been expressed in Executive Orders banning refugees and threatening health care for millions? Compassion for the man who put minorities and other marginalized communities on notice from day one of his campaign, and indeed from the very beginning of his attempts to delegitimize President Obama with his “Birther” claims? A man who gets worked up about the size of his inaugural crowd, to the point of issuing “alternative facts” through his spokespeople? Compassion for a man who doesn’t seem to have much compassion … [Read more...] about Compassion for Trump?
