Poll Shows US Losing World’s Respect Under Trump

Poll Shows US Losing World’s Respect Under Trump:  According to a wide-ranging international study, with the exception of Russia, Donald Trump’s presidency is alarming citizens of our nation’s closest allies as well as others worldwide, diminishing the US standing in the world.  Can’t for the life of me understand why.

Giggling gods

People make plans and the gods laugh...

A year ago I told my boss I'd retire after the summer programs were done. I offered to volunteer enough hours to keep my beloved arts camps and apprenticeship programs alive.

Study Finds Sex Doesn’t Actually Sell Products

Study Finds Sex Doesn’t Actually Sell Products:  Researchers analyzed nearly 80 advertising studies published over the past 30 years and found that while people often remember a particularly racy ad, that frequently doesn’t translate into customers actually buying the product that the advertiser is selling.  I totally agree.  I recently saw an ad featuring a very sexy woman eating a burger and, instead of going right out and ordering a burger, I made an…

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Hire Surrogate

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Hire Surrogate:  Kim Kardashian is claiming she has a condition called “placenta accreta,” which makes it dangerous for her to carry another child, so she and Kanye have now hired a surrogate to carry their third child.  If I’m correct, I believe “placenta accreta" is Italian for “why should I go through another nine months of carrying a kid when I can just pay someone to do it for me?”…

Gunman Kidnaps Family and Forces Them to Shop at Target:  A North Carolina man has been arrested for kidnapping a family and then forcing them to go shopping with him at Target.  Good grief, I realize these big box stores are getting desperate for customers, but kidnapping a family by gunpoint and forcing them to shop at Target has to be about the worst marketing strategy ever.…
