    Getting rich is not a great motivator for all but still some useful nuggets: Author who studies millionaires: 240 minutes a day separates the rich from everyone else Tom Corley, Contributor 9 Hours Ago There are 1,440 minutes in each day. That is the one common denominator we all share. With respect to time, we are all on equal footing. And most people, rich or poor, use about 1,200 of those minutes for the following activities: work, commuting, family-related, sleeping, eating, bathing, bathroom, grooming and dressing. That leaves about 240 minutes of time each day. And it is what the rich do with those 240 minutes that separates them from everyone else.

    Gallery Owner Arrested After Dropping Sculpture Of Giant Drug Spoon At Purdue Pharma As a protest to the opioid crisis, artist Domenic Esposito and gallerist Fernando Luis Alvarez (speaking) placed a spoon sculpture in front of the Purdue Pharma building in Stamford early Friday morning. Susan Dunne A Stamford art gallery owner was arrested and charged with a criminal misdemeanor and a felony Friday morning after dropping an 800-pound steel sculpture of a bent, burnt heroin spoon in front of Purdue Pharma, a top manufacturer of opioids, and then refusing to remove it. Fernando Luis Alvarez, who is mounting an exhibit on the opioid epidemic, was charged with obstruction of free passage for his act of “guerrilla art,” and for interfering with police in front of the 201 Tresser Blvd. corporate headquarters. The spoon was placed in an automotive drop-off spot, making the path unusable. The placement of the sculpture was the misdemeanor charge; refusal to remove it resulted in the felony charge. Police also informed Alvarez he might be charged financially for the removal and storage of the artwork, which is 10 1/2 feet long. Alvarez said the sculpture and its placement are a statement intended to create a groundswell of outrage against Purdue and the billionaire Sackler family, who are majority owners of the company, which developed OxyContin.

    I second that. I recall Trump's inauguraion speech featured two leaders, Trump (moderate Left/opportunist with good rhetoric skills) lately being rebranded as 'Right' and 'moderate far left' Schumer. Both probably funded by same pockets.

    From another discussion: Why waste money in dingy theaters when quality free comedic entertainment of political theater is available to all lately. Some of the new entries to the politics bring a lot of 2-in-1 package value for the audiences. Well can you point to a single instance where Trump himself brought up or encouraged others to bring up killing of thousands of innocent children by Obama drone strikes?

    I'm not sure what effect the author of the OP article hoped to achieve by relating this particular anecdote. If it was shocked recoil at the interrogator's reply, then the attempt is (or should be) a complete failure. The interrogator is correct, as far as it goes. In fact, I would go even further and drop the word "necessarily." It's unfastidious, mush-brained nonsense like "all perspectives are valid" that has led directly to a world full of just the sort of insanities described in the article.

    Apart from Renner, I've never heard of any of those people. I have no idea what they might have been in or if I've ever seen them in anything. And I only know Renner because of the Marvel/Avengers stuff. (Also, IIRC, I think he was the lead in that Jason Bourne movie that didn't have Jason Bourne in it.)

    I am not sure if that is a good idea because it replaces one system of brainwashing with another, and both achieve the exact same thing, fixed habits of reaction to any figure of authority. I think his best chance is to eliminate the instruction of others, including either of us, and do it for himself.

    First of all, understand that you need to have Many Goals, not just ones that suit what you want. That is usually the hardest thing to do as a parent. The way that many of the lessons that achieve the goals is often very counter intuitive, and will go completely against your instincts as a parent. Thats the basic idea of Reverse Psychology, but when that label is not clearly understood, efforts to try to apply reverse psychology can easily backfire. I am sure that you dont want to see your kid fail at all. Most parents dont. But, at the same time, most parents set their kids up to fail because they have become over protective and not letting the children learn how to cope with failures. It is one of the most important lessons any person can learn in life. Its also why there are theories out there that say that the A Student often works for the C Student. The reason for that is the C Student is used to things not working out perfectly, and having the tenacity to continue working towards a solution, while the A Student simply shuts down if things dont work out perfectly for them immediately. One critically important factor is that you have to REJECT THE GRADES OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS. I cant emphasize this enough. Everyone one is good at something. And not everyone is interested, or good at the things we are expected to be good at. Imagine yourself in school. You fail an Art class. Then you go home to your parents, and they tell you "its okay, not everyone is good at drawing or art". What that teaches is that Art itself as a focus is useless, and the level of interest you have is irrelevant because the demands of society comes first. Now, imagine you come home from school. Not your kid, but YOU. YOU failed math. You simply did not understand. You get your ass handed to you because it is considered a fundamental skill that you must excel at. The psychological consequences of this type of judgement are tremendous. It starts with creating a sense of self doubt which later leads to other major problems such as emotional dependency on authority as well as teaching that everything is hard. If you need to see the results of making children feel shame or guilt for getting poor grades in emphasized subjects, just look at the Youth of America today. Do you think they have any self esteem what so ever? Any confidence? Any ambition? A few do, but not enough to place the US as even a decent place to live any more. The Grades that your kid receives from ANY Public School MUST be taken into context of the School. Did your kid fail in school, or did School itself fail your kids? Now, your kid is good at something. And not just at texting or posting selfies. But there are other hidden dormant underlying and often undiscovered skills your kid is probably an absolute genius at. Those are what need to be found and encouraged because of the secondary lesson of "if you are good at this, what else are you good at"? That type of encouragement builds Self Esteem, Self Worth and maintains a Healthy Interest in many areas they could potentially be great at. If you only focus on the bad stuff and only what the Professionals tell you, then you are setting your kid up for failure and teaching them to undermine any Self Reliance. Fish are great at swimming. But if you teach a Fish that it is stupid based on its ability to climb a tree, then the Fish will grow up and believe it is a worthless piece of shit for the rest of its life. And that is exactly what Public School does. Your job as a parent is to offer as much incentive which turns your child into a confident and self reliant person. It is hard enough to do that, but, now that you know you have to resist the urge to accept the passing judgement of a system that sets your kid up for failure, you have twice as much work to do. We are always told to "think before we speak". That holds true even as adults. If you punish a kid for disobedience, what is the...
