Philadelphia (CNN)

As Hillary Clinton playfully batted away an avalanche of balloons Thursday night, she appeared proud, happy and reconciled to her historic moment.

She had accepted the Democratic nomination with “humility, determination and boundless confidence in America’s promise,” taking her place as the first woman to lead a major presidential ticket on a night pulsating with emotion.

“By habitually using these 3 phrases, you will strengthen your ability to effortlessly lead others in the direction that you want them to go. And that simply will make your role as a leader much more powerful and meaningful – something we all want when leading other people.”

  2. “Would you mind…”
  3. “Does this make sense?”

An often-cited but frequently misunderstood communication study completed by UCLA researcher Albert Mehrabian found that  93% of communication comes from something other than the words used.

Translation – only 7% comes from the actual words themselves.
Sounds pretty straightforward, right?

So why is this nugget of useful information so commonly misunderstood? Because in reality, the study doesn’t really relate to understanding the literal meaning of the words that are communicated.

It really relates to the impact of the words or the impression the person has of the communicator.

Madhya Pradesh has been receiving heavy to very heavy rains during the past few days. So much so that many cities have been witnessing rainfall in three digits. Satna is one such city which has been receiving extremely heavy rain for three consecutive days.

During the last 21 hours from 8:30 am on Thursday, Satna recorded a whopping 244 mm of rain. The rainy tale doesn’t end here. While the city recorded 131 mm of rain on Tuesday, a whopping 277 mm of rainfall was observed on Wednesday.

These rains can be attributed to the weather system which has been lingering close to Madhya Pradesh for quite some time now. The system had intensified into a depression increasing the rainfall intensity over the area. Now, the weather system has weakened into a low pressure area.

Climate Change talk with Al Gore

Last week, Al Gore rocked TED with one of the most electrifying talks on our planet’s future you’ll ever hear. He asks three questions about climate change:

  1. Do we have to change? (Oh, yes we do; stunning stats and some jawdropping footage help make his case.)
  2. Second question: Can we change? And here’s the surprising part: We’ve already started. So then, he asks the big question:
  3. Will we change? In this challenging, inspiring talk, Gore says yes: “We’re going to win this.”

If you’ve got climate-change fatigue, feeling helpless and hopeless — take the time to watch this rousing talk on the state of Earth right now.

‘Three sides to every story’: Behind Trinity Mirror’s news-aggregation app

   

When launching a mobile news app, publishers don’t usually start by aggregating other publishers’ news. But that’s what Trinity Mirror is doing with its latest app, Perspecs.

The publisher, which already has 30 tablet editions and 14 news apps (Android and iOS) across its national and regional titles — including its biggest, Daily Mirror app — is now testing audience appetite for its own curation of third-party news and opinion aggregation.

The plan is not to offer breaking-news updates but to manually curate 10 stories from other publishers, which will run as a daily edition. Three different articles, often with opposing viewpoints, will run on each story, representing the left, neutral and right-wing political perspectives on the same story.
