Thoughts on Raconteur Report's Adult Supervision & the Media Plan

This is an interesting post.

Raconteur Report: Adult Supervision & the Media Plan

Whenever I teach, I try to stress that perception is reality.  How you perceive yourself is one thing, how others perceive you is another.  And when one is managing an event that is viewed by others, we must put our best professional foot forward.  (The short of it is watch your language and maintain clear verbal commands, while there is more to it I shall not go into it here.)

While a portion of this was directed at the idiocy that was the Oregon occupation, this essay would have been helpful with a lot of the other protests in the past few years such as the Occupy Wall Street groups.

I've noted that different media entities take up for certain...  Protesters?  Activists?  Heck, different alphabet medias will each term the groups different ways depending on how they intend to portray them.  I remember in college that I was taught that the media could not influence a person's decision making.  But they can, due to the fact that they can filter what information is presented thus the viewers are not making fully informed decisions.

Don't Give Up - AMV

Per: wolven outcast

 "No matter the wall, no matter the darkness we all try to thrive. Sometimes the burdern is greater than we think we can handle, no matter how hard we strive. We all want to be special if only for a little while, to see the the light at its brightest. but the darkness consumes our every thought, leaving us not even in the slightest. I know, perhaps better it is that i hope there is someone for me. Lonely hearts sometimes find their way, far off the bitter coast into the sea. Love the song and the words, even if for now i cannot feel their warmth. Rest now its time to sleep, before the reaver's sythe i keep."

I was just futzing on YouTube and found this.  Kind of interesting.  So I'm posting this here and I'm going to have to look into them some more when I have more free time.
