Michael Weitz and Abigail Tenembaum, founders of Virtuozo, coach everyone from TED speakers to CEOs to express their message effectively."Even the same audience is different at 9am on a Monday than it is after a long day of presentations at 5pm."That might mean throwing aside the PowerPoint, or adding in a personal anecdote if your message can go off-script."If you ask attendees of TED talks what drives them crazy, it's when speakers talk like they're reciting a memorised text," says Weitz."If you speak fast in a low voice, your impact will not be what it could have been.""Most people will put their foot on the accelerator," says Weitz.
In a show of sensitivity carefully plotted nine month ago, the $2.2 billion Seattle-based sporting goods co-op is officially opting out of the shopping madness the day after Thanksgiving this year.In a touching email dispatched to its 5.5 million co-op members yesterday, the company pledged to keep its doors closed on Nov. 27, the day when all hell breaks loose at malls across America, sometimes fatally.That’s right: All 143 of REI’s retail locations, along with its headquarters and distribution centers, will not be open for business.The same goes for Thanksgiving Day, too.Gee willikers, Charlie Brown would be proud.Instead, they’ll shake a leg in the Great Outdoors to “reconnect with family and friends…” (We’re sure none of them will Netflix and chill, lazily riding out the tryptophan crash, like we can’t wait to do.)
I ve never been one for hi-vis.It is not merely vanity, though I admit luminous yellow is just not my colour.It s that too many cyclists see it as a panacea, a fluorescent force-field that will protect them from the dangers of the road, whereas the truth is you can be done up head-to-toe as a highlighter pen and it ll not help you at all if you re always cowering in a driver s blind spot.I don t wear proper cycling gear to ride two miles to the Guardian s Manchester office each day.If it s raining, I ll don a waterproof jacket or, more honestly, take the car .But generally I m in my civvies and so am arguably the prime market for Volvo s new LifePaint, a water-based reflective safety spray , which promises to turn ordinary clothes into beacons when in direct glare of headlights.

I was sexually abused as a child … and have dealt with the consequences of that my entire life.Imagine going through life with an ever-present shadow hanging over you, worrying if you too might be like the people who destroyed your childhood and life.It has infected almost every significant tech event around the world, said a 2010 article in Wired.An omniscient moderator leads players through the two alternating phases of the game – day and night.When Davidoff was growing up, most Soviet games were inspired by the us v them dynamic of the cold war, but Davidoff wanted Mafia to serve as a metaphor for the darkest years of the communist regime, when anyone – your boss, your neighbour, your lover – could be an informant.Unlike the high-powered tech whizzes who play the parlour game, the people who play Epic Mafia tend to be high-school and college students looking for a good way to waste time.
