Why I don't watch "3rd degree":
(NZ tabloid TV show)

Last night's offering cherry-picked tow "scientists" to make a diet debate sound like a 50:50 split - and then misrepresented both their statements.

The big question the pseudo-journalists kept emphasizing was:  " how is the ordinary public supposed to know what's what?" ... well if the press did their job properly...

"The biggest mistake I see over and over is that people don’t have enough empathy. When you have an opportunity to present, you tend to start to processing information from your own perspective. Usually, it’s all about the information you want to give, instead of being about the information the audience wants to receive. You need to spend an enormous amount of time thinking about what the audience wants to receive."
— Nancy Duarte.

I wonder if I can make my profile photo a blurred version of the banner photo so, when it gets displayed in my profile page, it looks like there's nothing there?

Or maybe I can use a transparent circle with ragged edges so it looks like a bullet hole through frosted glass?

FBI tries to talk a law student being hunted by bad guys to accept police protection.

A 9 page scene intended as an exercise for beginning actors.
Also writing practice for me :)

Basic 2-person conflict very loosely inspired by a mix of US thriller novels. Particularly Grisham - I had a bee in my bonnet for a while that there is very little interpersonal conflict in his books.

Randomly catching my eye while searching for something else: more quality science.

A survey of members of a club catering specifically to people who want to have sex outside marriage without leaving their partner discovers that almost all of them have no intention of leaving their partner.

I'd get more annoyed about this sort of thing if it were not the norm.

Apparently, cheating spouses want to have their cake and eat it too. Victoria Milan -- a dating site for married people seeking affairs -- surveyed 4,658 of their members and found that 76 percent preferred to have sex with their lovers but still...
