Reverse Assumptions: Do You Ever Judge People Who Have Been Homeless?…


Date: September 08, 2018

01) Do You Ever Judge People Who Have Been Homeless?


“It’s certainly easier to make assumptions about people than it is to spend time getting to know someone. We wanted to put assumptions to the test to see what we’re missing out on because we’re so busy assuming we already “know” a person. Join us as we discover why you should never judge a book by it’s cover in our series, Reverse Assumptions.

We are all conditioned with certain biases. In this experiment, we challenged these biases by asking people to make assumptions about their partner’s appearance without ever actually seeing their partner. When they flipped around to finally face each other, they were shocked by how wrong they were.

Now it’s YOUR turn. What do people assume about you?”

01) Trump FREAKS OUT Over Impeachment


“President Donald Trump went on a bizarre tangent during a rally Thursday night in Billings, Montana, speculating about his possible impeachment while attempting to convince his supporters to vote Republican in November’s midterm elections.

“This election, you aren’t just voting for a candidate, you’re voting for which party controls Congress,” Trump said. “I don’t even bring it up, because I view it as something that… you know… they like to use the ‘impeach’ word, ‘impeach Trump.’ But I say, how do you impeach somebody that’s doing a great job, that hasn’t done anything wrong? Our economy is good. How do you do it? How do you do it?

01) Trump’s Lawyer Told Him He’ll Be In ‘An Orange Jumpsuit’


“Acclaimed journalist Bob Woodward’s upcoming new book, Fear: Trump in the White House, is set to provide a behind-the-scenes look at the distrust within the president’s inner circle and the chaos that reportedly consumes his White House.

According to excerpts obtained Tuesday by CNN and The Washington Post, Woodward’s book uses deep-background interviews with many Trump staffers to illustrate how Trump’s top advisers view him in a stunningly negative light and how the president’s obsession with the Russia probe has driven a wedge between him and his most trusted advisers…

01) This Is Why MLMs Get Called Cults


“Are MLMs a cult? Multi-Level Marketing schemes like Lularoe, Young Living Essential Oils, Doterra, Kyani, Herbalife, and Amway are scams for sure, but are they cults? Here we cut past the success stories, the testimonies, and the how-to’s in order to analyze these pyramid schemes in light of Steven Hassan’s BITE model.

The world of pseudoscience is closely tied to the MLM world, as essential oils, naturopathy, homeopathy, anti-vax / anti-vaxxers, cancer conspiracies, and all kinds of alternative medicine exist in both. Direct sales and network marketing are often little more than alt-med quackery.”

01) Twitter FINALLY Bans Alex Jones


“Twitter on Thursday said it has “permanently suspended” conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his InfoWars outlet, citing “new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy.”

Last month, YouTube, Apple, Facebook and Spotify banned Jones’ main platforms over concerns about his content. But Twitter only suspended some of his privileges, a move that drew criticism.

On Wednesday, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tussled with Jones after Jones confronted and touched him outside a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing.

And at a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey faced questions amid criticism from Republicans that big tech companies suppress conservatives online.
