INSPIRING LEADERSHIP & 13 RULES OF LEADERSHIP-COLIN POWELL  *******Inspiring Leadership is a great motivational video for inspiring leaders.  I agreed with everything they said and the cartoonist injected some humor in the end which was nice.  I also enjoyed Colin Powell’s quotes.  Every leader should practice his principles.*******

WORD OF THE DAY

VISAGE

• \VIZ-ij\ • noun

*1 : the face, countenance, or appearance of a person or sometimes an animal
2 : aspect, appearance

Example Sentence:

The model’s fierce, smoldering visage appears to gaze with contempt from billboards throughout the city.

Did you know?

The word “face” may be a pretty generic word, but it has several high-flown synonyms. “Physiognomy,” for instance, refers to facial features thought to reveal qualities of temperament or character (“I thought I could detect in his physiognomy a mind owning better qualities than his father ever possessed. . . .” — Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights). “Countenance” is often used to refer to the face as an indication of mood or emotion (“Mina struggled hard to keep her brave countenance. . . .” — Bram Stoker, Dracula). “Visage” can refer to the face of a person or an animal, and it can also refer to the appearance of nonliving things, as in “the dirty visage of the old abandoned factory.”

*Indicates the sense illustrated in the example sentence.

VISAGE-FADE TO GREY  *******I remember this song…I was a wee tyke, but I do recall doin’ a couple of dances to it.  However, I DON’T remember this video!  Dude…the makeup!!!  Boy George had it like that, but seriously?  I watched this with my mouth open and my 7-year-old said, “Mom, who’s the creepy guy?”  We weren’t too pleased with his visage business, but to each his own! :)*******
