WORST ANALOGIES…EVER Part 2
~ The brick wall was the color of a brick-red Crayola crayon.
~ I felt a nameless dread. Well, there probably is a long German name for it, like Geschpooklichkeit or something, but I don’t speak German. Anyway, it’s a dread that nobody knows the name for, like those little square plastic gizmos that close your bread bags. I don’t know . . . → Read More: This post is like a bunch of words on a piece of paper, except it’s electronic
The Simple Dollar » Everything You Ever Really Needed to Know About Personal Finance on the Back of Five Business Cards
Lately I’ve felt like Trent was recycling the same advice over and over again, and I was starting to lose interest, but this post pulled it all together nicely.
During the lunch, out of the blue, he asked me to give a five minute nutshell version of what I would present to the group. . . . → Read More: Personal Finance on 5 business cards
“Journeyman” Will Get Its 12 Episodes – Slice of SciFi
Well, it sounds like saner heads have prevailed… for now. NBC has given the green light to the final two produced episodes of “Journeyman.” That’s great news. This is one show I have got to see. BUT READ ON:
However, fans may need to adjust their recording devices. The first half of this two-part episode airs on Monday, December 17th at 10 p.m. EST. The . . . → Read More: “Journeyman” Will Get Its 12 Episodes – Slice of SciFi
“Journeyman” Creator Quells Cancellation Rumors – Slice of SciFi
A couple posts ago I mentioned that “Journeyman” may not air all of its produced episodes this year. Well, it turns out that’s still a question, but it’s not as bad as previously predicted.
while the show may not get a back nine (Season Two), NBC is ready to allow the entire first season to air – well, almost. Also, the final episode (if it sees . . . → Read More: Good-ish news for “Journeyman”
Bryce Zabel’s FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH: Santa’s 2007 Movie Smackdown!
Bryce has put together a fun poll on which Christmas/holiday movies make the cut for annual viewing. Which ones can you stand to watch year after year?
My pick that didn’t make his critics’ list: Ernest Saves Christmas. I never fail to laugh at that film, and quote it year-round. “Nobody moves; nobody dies…” heh… I’m cracking up just thinking about it. It has heart, . . . → Read More: The Santa Smackdown!
Two incredible shows are currently on the edge of cancellation, if reports are to be believed, and NBC seems to be saying that they won’t even air episodes that were already produced. In the face of a dearth of available programming due to the writer’s strike, this just seems to me to be one of the most boneheaded things I’ve ever heard. Even if you’re not particularly in favor of the show, if you’ve got . . . → Read More: NBC is sharpening its axe
I managed to get to David Snowden’s talk this morning about, essentially, the nature of learning. What does science say about how we learn? Is that different from the way we, as trainers, try to make people learn?
It seems that we are trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. And what we’re ending up doing is, sometimes painfully, reshaping the hole (the trainees) to become square, rather than filing our peg . . . → Read More: Corporate Learning conference: Day 3
The free online conference for Corporate Learning started on Thursday (it continues next Monday and Tuesday). So far, I’ve only been able to attend two sessions, one presentation on Web/Learning 2.0, and one Q&A/Discussion session following up on that presentation, both led by Tony Karrer. Unfortunately, I missed everything on Friday. Good thing it’s all being recorded!
I thought it was really a good way to do things, though my schedule wasn’t cleared as well . . . → Read More: Links from Corporate Learning: Trends and Innovations Day 1
The Second Chance DVD
Steve Taylor is no stranger to controversy. His music in the ’80s was unabashedly pointed at issues of hypocrisy and general laziness within Christian communities and its leaders (and it’s important to realize that he recognized himself as part of that community). He was willing to hold up a mirror for those who would listen to see their behavior and how it frequently ran contrary to the faith they professed. In . . . → Read More: Review: The Second Chance
15 Minute Lunch: Strap in, shut up and hold on. We’re going back. It’s almost shocking anyone survived the 1970s. There should have been some kind of ritual suicide for looking like this.
Sadly, I think I owned that entire outfit. And wore it. MOM, What was wrong with you?!
This next one… I couldn’t come up with anything better than the description on the original site…
This kid looks like he’s . . . → Read More: Grab your Hardy Boys lunch box – here come the ’70s
