SORT BY Relevancy
Join the Young Media Critics as they ask you "Do You Know the Language of Persuasion? Part 1 of a 3 part series.
The goal of most media messages is to persuade the audience to believe or do something. Hollywood movies use expensive special effects to make us believe that what we’re seeing is real. News stories use several techniques – such as direct quotation of identified sources – to make us believe that the story is accurate. These "persuaders" use a variety of techniques to grab our attention, to establish credibility and trust, to stimulate desire for the product or policy, and to motivate us to act (buy, vote, give money, etc.)
We call these techniques the "language of persuasion.” They’re not new; Aristotle wrote about persuasion techniques more than 2000 years ago, and they’ve been used by speakers, writers, and media makers for even longer than that.
Tune in on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 5 p.m. and learn about the "language of Persuasion! Call in to join the discussion: 347-633-9114!

Just when you wouldn't think things couldn't get better for the Republicians, Obama hands them more ammunition of his incompetency. One of America's best known policies is "we do not negotiate with terrorist". What does he turn around and do...give up five terrorist for one soldier. Who does that? This reminds me of the story of Jack and the Beanstalk where Jack trades the family's cow for five magic beans. There are two lessons to be learned from the comparison. There are no bags of gold at the end of this story and IT IS A DAMN FAIRY TALE!!! I guess he was hoping this would take the heat off of him from his mounting VA scandal. A recent CNN poll shows that Obama did not gain a majority of support for any of twelve issues surveyed from the respondents. In fact, in ten of the twelve issues, majorities disapproved of the President’s performance. Really. How many times has the GOP been pointing out Obama's lack of leadership? This really shouldn't be news. Leadership comes from a proven record. There was nothing we could have compared his record without the media jumping on the racial bandwagon. Compentence has nothing to do with skin color. It was only a matter of time before the results of his bad leadership would emerge. Maybe it was a good thing that Mitt Romney did not win the 2008 election because all of these mistakes would have revealed themselves under his watch and he would have been the blame. We will continue to look at the other decisions that have proven to be failures under this President, the Obamacare tax will collect $3B less than expected, Hilliary Clinton is leaving Barack Obama high and dry on the Bergdahl-Taliban Trade, MORE States Report Double-Digit Premium Hikes, and finally Obama fires somebody for incompentence...maybe

Mortal Kombat X is revealed - did the trailer give us a gamergasm, and would it have compelled us to get on the next-generation system bandwagon? We'll talk about heel turns in wrestling and the death threats they cause in relation to the WWE's Seth Rollins! Wisconsin girls are stabbing classmates to impress the Internet, and witnesses to car accidents in Dallas are filming it but FINALLY Avril Lavigne is letting her fans actually touch her! The Catholic Church wants to ban One Direction, the KKK wants to recruit Justin Bieber, and the nerds of the earth want more Star Wars Episode VII set leaks! Also Chris Brown is walking the streets again - is anybody safe or will he just cause some more trouble?
We'll talk about all the news where weird gets weirder as we discuss a woman who stabbed a man over an argument... about marshmallows, along with a police officer who got caught "roughing up the suspect" under the table at Starbucks (that means masturbation). All this and the story of a Marine that crucified himself in public? It's the show where no topic is taboo! Join us every Wednesday right here on listentothisshow.com !
Everyone wants to get in on the "Prison Swap" bandwagon now. Cuban spies now looking to trade with the US.
This president has put weapons in the hands of al Qaeda, given them no-doubtidly money and he has given their top generals back, I know its hard and its ugly . . . but, we have to seriously consider impeachment hearings. This is too much now. We've lost lives, jobs, freedoms, quality's of life, ways of life, we have ignored our Veterans to the point they died due to lack of care.
No more brushing this under the rug and defending this stuff. Its time to impeach and set a precident, that this kind of tyranical governing will not be tolorated in the USA!
Tune in every weekday at 8:00pm to 10:00pm to hear The Captain unlock his treasure chest of opinions and ideas, facing all matters of Constitutional Freedom.
“I am my customer.” Not a mysterious mantra with some hidden meaning. Just a simple fact that inspired Stella Photi to launch Wellbeing Escapes in 2005. Being a working mother with a demanding career, the challenge to keep all the balls in the air in life’s big juggling act meant keeping mind and body as fresh as possible In this day and age when everyone is jumping on the “health” bandwagon, Stella saw the need to find and qualify the experts in the industry. This is where her quest started to make healthy breaks accessible and to start a company offering down to earth, objective advice and guidance on a wide range of health and wellbeing experiences. Prior to starting Wellbeing Escapes, alongside with her business partner, Stella formed a consulting firm in the UK focused on tourism marketing, which since has grown to be a successful business.
