    Motivational Quote/Word/Song/Videos of the Day- 9 Oct 2008 


    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    “Whoever is happy will make others happy too.”  -Mark Twain

    GOLDFRAPP- HAPPINESS  *******This video made me smile.  He was waaaay too happy!  I love the days when I feel like skipping down the street, helping old ladies with their groceries and buying all the neighborhood children an ice cream cone.  Thank God for bad days because I’d be broke and tired if I felt like that everday!  ;)*******

    WORD OF THE DAY

    DUPLICITOUS

    (adjective)
    [doo-PLIS-i-tahs, dyoo-PLIS-i-tahs]

    1. given to or marked by deliberate deceptiveness in behavior or speech: “Harry is too naive to be duplicitous.”
    adverb form: duplicitously
    noun form: duplicitousness


    Origin:
    Approximately 1450; from Late Latin, ‘duplicitas’; from Latin, ‘duplic-,’ stem of ‘duplex’: twofold, from ‘plicare’: to fold.

    In action:
    “‘Lemmings don’t leap off cliffs to commit mass suicide. When a population boom causes overcrowding, these Arctic rodents do the sensible thing and migrate en masse in search of a new home. A few of them may occasionally get crowded off a ledge as they swarm into unfamiliar territory. But it’s an accident. Really. The myth of mass suicide got enshrined in modern urban lore by Disney filmmakers in the 1950s, who had the dumb idea that forcing captive lemmings off a cliff would make for dramatic film footage. Real weasels don’t wear tassels on their shoes. And they spend most of their time chasing down mice, rats and other rodents. This makes them heroes, not villains, contrary to the chicken house myth. So if it’s not right to call your typical slimy record industry executive a ‘weasel’, what should you call him? Just say ‘sleazebag’ and leave innocent animals out of it.’
    So the duplicitous executive who trashed you to cover his own failings is a sleazebag, not a weasel? Good to know.”
    Richard Pachter. “Business doesn’t have to be beastly,” [Book Review: ‘The Ape in The Corner Office’ by Richard Conniff] The Miami Herald (October 17, 2005).

    Motivational Quote/Word/Song/Videos of the Day- 28 Aug 2008 


    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    “If we are basically positive in attitude, expecting and envisioning pleasure, satisfaction and happiness, we will attract and create people, situations and events which conform to our positive expectations.”  -Shakti Gawain, Author of Creative Visualization

    USING VISUALIZATION TO CREATE SUCCESS  *******This is a great visualization technique to get the ball rolling for you.*******

    WORD OF THE DAY

    REFRACTORY

    • \rih-FRAK-tuh-ree\ adjective

    *1 : resisting control or authority : stubborn, unmanageable
    2 a : resistant to treatment or cure
    b : unresponsive to stimulus
    c : immune, insusceptible
    3 : difficult to fuse, corrode, or draw out; especially : capable of enduring high temperature

    Example Sentence:

    Refractory students may be disciplined, suspended, or expelled, depending on the seriousness of their offense.

    Did you know?

    “Refractory” is from the Latin word “refractarius.” During the 17th century, it was sometimes spelled as “refractary,” but that spelling, though more in keeping with its Latin parent, had fallen out of use by the century’s end. “Refractarius,” like “refractory,” is the result of a slight variation in spelling. It stems from the Latin verb “refragari,” meaning “to oppose.”

    *Indicates the sense illustrated in the example sentence.

    MAN FIGHTS COP, THEN RUNS, GETS TASED  *******Well he should be thirsty after all of that!  It’s just not a good idea to resist arrest.*******

    And for those of you that have more time…

    DRUNK RESISTING ARREST-FUNNY VIDEO  *******This dude is a true lunatic!  At least his Chi is flowing!  LOL*******

    SONG OF THE DAY

    SARA BAREILLES-LOVE SONG  *******Although it may seem like it, Sara didn’t write this song for a man.  This is the song that spilled out of her when she was fuming after Sony asked her to write a love song for her album.  You push her, you get a hit…keep pushing Sony!*******

    Motivational Quote/Word/Videos of the Day 15 Aug 2008 


    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    “Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life,
    the whole aim and end of human existence.”

    — Aristotle: was a Greek philosopher

    PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS  *******This video has some golden nuggets of wisdom from the regular folk.  Dig the dude with the open shirtHe’s got it down!  It’s sad to hear so many people citing money as the key to happiness.  Sure it provides wealth in terms of material possessions, but spiritual wealth provides a richness greater than anything money can buy.*******

    WORD OF THE DAY

    INNOCUOUS

    • \ih-NAH-kyuh-wus\ • adjective

    1 : producing no injury : harmless
    *2 : not likely to give offense or to arouse strong feelings or hostility : inoffensive, insipid

    Example Sentence:

    Bella was surprised when her seemingly innocuous remark enraged her classmates.

    Did you know?

    “Innocuous” has harmful roots — it comes to us from the Latin adjective “innocuus,” which was formed by combining the negative prefix “in-” with a form of the verb “nocēre,” meaning “to harm” or “to hurt.” In addition, “nocēre” is related to the truly “harmful” words “noxious,” “nocent,” and even “nocuous.” “Innocent” is from “nocēre” as well, although like “innocuous” it has the “in-” prefix negating the hurtful possibilities. “Innocuous” first appeared in print in 1598 with the clearly Latin-derived meaning “harmless or causing no injury” (as in “an innocuous gas”). The second sense is a metaphorical extension of the idea of injury, used to indicate that someone or something does not cause hurt feelings, or even strong feelings (“an innocuous book” or “innocuous issues,” for example).

    *Indicates the sense illustrated in the example sentence.

    RAGING RYAN  *******Wow!  This was supposed to be a harmless prank, but Ryan was NOT laughing!  LOL
