Gone are the days when a divorce was shockingly scandalous - a surprising crisis! Now, people exclaim and applaud if you even make it through 50 years of marriage.

More music Music is a language, a form of communication. It can elicit emotional responses n provoke thought, but it cannot signify concrete things or ideas in the manner of nouns, verbs,n adjectives. Music is an abstract language whose meaning is dependent upon the relationship between the creator and the listener.

It is more important to elicit change, rather than impose it, to build on human capacity rather than encourage co-dependency.

More evidence of the selective reporting of the downstream media. If reporting it doesn't elicit the proper response, it falls down the hole. More evidence that there are plenty of things that are perfectly true and are not on "the news." This should have made national headlines, since it was an attempted mass shooting, but the outcome doesn't elicit the proper responses: get rid of the Second Amendment.

I guess if you want to go on a hunger strike to elicit change you better make sure your house is in order!

Apparently, all you need to say to two 4 1/2 yr olds and one 2 1/2 yr old to elicit the biggest scream of excitement ever is " does anyone fancy putting their wellies on and doing some puddle jumping?"

Quote Examples using Elicit

All great leaders have one characteristic in common: The ability to comfort the anxiety of their people in their time. A leader's task is to lead his people to where they must go. Leaders don't put greatness into humanity, they elicit it. Leadership must be based on goodwill. Control is not leadership. Strange as it sounds, great leaders gain authority by giving it away. Smart leaders are great simplifiers who offer simple solutions. Skillful leaders seize opportunities to change things for the better. Where there is no leadership, society stands still. The true essence of leadership is intentional influence. You cannot be a leader who asks other people to follow you, Unless you truly know how to follow too. Your position never gives you the right to command. Live so others may receive your orders without being humiliated. The true leader leaves behind him in other men, The conviction and the will to carry on. Good leaders see to the education of their people. Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; Easy to govern, but impossible to enslave. Leadership cannot really be taught. It can only be learned.

I dont know if this is true or not. What are your thoughts on it? In 1983, a team of deeply pious scientists conducted a radical experiment in an undisclosed facility. The scientists had theorized that a human without access to any senses or ways to perceive stimuli would be able to perceive the presence of God. They believed that the five senses clouded our awareness of eternity, and without them, a human could actually establish contact with God by thought. An elderly man who claimed to have “nothing left to live for” was the only test subject to volunteer. To purge him of all his senses, the scientists performed a complex operation in which every sensory nerve connection to the brain was surgically severed.* Although the test subject retained full muscular function, he could not see, hear, taste, smell, or feel. With no possible way to communicate with or even sense the outside world, he was alone with his thoughts. Scientists monitored him as he spoke aloud about his state of mind in jumbled, slurred sentences that he couldn't even hear. After four days, the man claimed to be hearing hushed, unintelligible voices in his head. Assuming it was an onset of psychosis, the scientists paid little attention to the man’s concerns. Two days later, the man cried that he could hear his dead wife speaking with him, and even more, he could communicate back. The scientists were intrigued, but were not convinced until the subject started naming dead relatives of the scientists. He repeated personal information to the scientists that only their dead spouses and parents would have known. At this point, a sizable portion of scientists left the study. After a week of conversing with the deceased through his thoughts, the subject became distressed, saying the voices were overwhelming. In every waking moment, his consciousness was bombarded by hundreds of voices that refused to leave him alone. He frequently threw himself against the wall, trying to elicit a pain response. He begged the scientists for sedatives, so he could escape the voices by sleeping. This tactic worked for three days, until he started having severe night terrors. The subject repeatedly said that he could see and hear the deceased in his dreams. Only a day later, the subject began to scream and claw at his non-functional eyes, hoping to sense something in the physical world. The hysterical subject now said the voices of the dead were deafening and hostile, speaking of hell and the end of the world. At one point, he yelled “No heaven, no forgiveness” for five hours straight. He continually begged to be killed, but the scientists were convinced that he was close to establishing contact with God. After another day, the subject could no longer form coherent sentences. Seemingly mad, he started to bite off chunks of flesh from his arm. The scientists rushed into the test chamber and restrained him to a table so he could not kill himself. After a few hours of being tied down, the subject halted his struggling and screaming. He stared blankly at the ceiling as teardrops silently streaked across his face. Eventually, he turned his head and, despite his blindness, made focused eye contact with a scientist for the first time in the study. He whispered “I have spoken with God, and He has abandoned us” and his vital signs stopped. There was no apparent cause of death.

So apparently the contracts that have been imposed on teachers in Ontario will save the province 70 million dollars a year. This with a 17 billion dollar deficit. Just to put this in perspective that 70 million is about $15 a household. The solution becomes obvious. Every household in Ontario pays an additional $15 in taxes over the next 2 years. Our children get extracurriculars back the political protests stop. Our children's education is worth paying for. But that's just my opinion

Disappointment is the key motivation to success which defines my life. i feel like ceaser when brutus stabbed a beloved king with his own knife. could that be the reason why jutus took his own life? i was told not to worry about the past, because the last shall be first and the first shall be last. so i'm comtemplating on coming in first, because time tells what my life is worth. i had a dream like martin lurther king. a phenomenal vision only seen through circumcision so let me elicit my decision. and watch it unfold. this is a story that has never been told. if i wrote a book about my life it'll prolly be the best book ever sold. excuse my expression. i'm just a young prophet with a uncontrollable soul. ©. yeah. i just wanna be legendary.

If you feel the need to troll, please post it on my wall, therefore all can see it. If you troll in messages, they will be shared publically. If you are not a troll, and polite about it, I will not share the message, no matter what your position is on gun control/the 2nd amendment. However if you feel the need to be rude, I see no reason to keep the message private. Thank you for your support.

Just a quick thought about guns and violence. I heard a report on the radio this morning that in the wake of the Newtown tragedy, there are a shortage of bullets in this country. It said that police officers don't even have enough ammo for target practice because there isn't ammo available. This will lead to less training for officers and leave them less prepared for firing a weapon when they really need too. It said where a police department can usually order a bulk payment of bullets and get them in 60 days, it will now take about 6 months for that same order. My question is, since all of the bullets are sold out, where do you think they will are or will end up? In my opinion, back in the hands of criminals instead of the people that need them the most. It is time for this nation to be smart and realize firing a gun or even owning a gun is not the answer to every problem. Just my opinion and a random thought. Carl

By Charles Sullivan / January 7th, 2013 It seems to me that even political conservatives must concede that virtually every social program in the US that has served the needs of the people resulted from leftist thinking and organized struggle. Examples include public schools, public libraries, the eight hour workday, the weekend, minimum wage, social security, pensions, Medicare, child labor laws, civil rights, unemployment insurance, and desegregation, a degree of gender equality, and Medicaide. Progressivism and liberalism is invariably opposed by its antithesis—regressivism. All forms of power elicit a response. The locations of power, blame, innocence, and trust are always being contested. No defeat and no victory are permanent. Like it or not, individual and collective struggle is the name of the game. The people on the far political right—neocons and neoliberals of the Democratic and Republican parties—do not know history, except from the perspective of the rich and powerful. Power interprets history in a way that is beneficial to the status quo. With few exceptions, history is a book of myths written by the winners. Perhaps the notion of human progress is also a myth. read more>>>>>>>>>>..................JR

She sits across the table, cards in hand, playing games learned half a lifetime ago, in a basement den with friends and bad boxed wine. She laughs a hearty laugh, and her smile is the same smile she smiled back then, when life was easy. The problems she had back then would elicit an even heartier laughter should they present themselves today. Her tastes have changed, the bad boxed wine replaced by a far superior bottled wine, but if you ask me, the only thing that has truly changed is the price tag. She was a prize of a beauty, but she never even knew, and she still carries herself like she's still the same naive little girl, drinking bad wine in a basement den with friends. But I know better.

Sadly recent comments prove that humanity is #!$%@&, religion just helps many justify their delusions. I'm not sure what excuse some atheists and antitheists have. A skeptic will weigh up facts and come to reasonable conclusions. "Truthers" however are only interested in that which fits their twisted world view, that's not skeptic, that's #!$%@&! stupid, and they have the audacity to call theists dumb. Be wary of any person purporting to hold "The Truth".

“Those who fail to exhibit positive attitudes, no matter the external reality, are seen as maladjusted and in need of assistance. Their attitudes need correction. Once we adopt an upbeat vision of reality, positive things will happen. This belief encourages us to flee from reality when reality does not elicit positive feelings. These specialists in "happiness" have formulated something they call the "Law of Attraction." It argues that we attract those things in life, whether it is money, relationships or employment, which we focus on. Suddenly, abused and battered wives or children, the unemployed, the depressed and mentally ill, the illiterate, the lonely, those grieving for lost loved ones, those crushed by poverty, the terminally ill, those fighting with addictions, those suffering from trauma, those trapped in menial and poorly paid jobs, those whose homes are in foreclosure or who are filing for bankruptcy because they cannot pay their medical bills, are to blame for their negativity. The ideology justifies the cruelty of unfettered capitalism, shifting the blame from the power elite to those they oppress. And many of us have internalized this pernicious message, which in times of difficulty leads to personal despair, passivity and disillusionment.” ― Chris Hedges

Guys it's a bit long but definitely worth the time. In 1983, a team of deeply pious scientists conducted a radical experiment in an undisclosed facility. The scientists had theorized that a human without access to any senses or ways to perceive stimuli would be able to perceive the presence of God. They believed that the five senses clouded our awareness of eternity, and without them, a human could actually establish contact with God by thought. An elderly man who claimed to have “nothing left to live for” was the only test subject to volunteer. To purge him of all his senses, the scientists performed a complex operation in which every sensory nerve connection to the brain was surgically severed. Although the test subject retained full muscular function, he could not see, hear, taste, smell, or feel. With no possible way to communicate with or even sense the outside world, he was alone with his thoughts. Scientists monitored him as he spoke aloud about his state of mind in jumbled, slurred sentences that he couldn’t even hear. After four days, the man claimed to be hearing hushed, unintelligible voices in his head. Assuming it was an onset of psychosis, the scientists paid little attention to the man’s concerns. Two days later, the man cried that he could hear his dead wife speaking with him, and even more, he could communicate back. The scientists were intrigued, but were not convinced until the subject started naming dead relatives of the scientists. He repeated personal information to the scientists that only their dead spouses and parents would have known. At this point, a sizable portion of scientists left the study. After a week of conversing with the deceased through his thoughts, the subject became distressed, saying the voices were overwhelming. In every waking moment, his consciousness was bombarded by hundreds of voices that refused to leave him alone. He frequently threw himself against the wall, trying to elicit a pain response. He begged the scientists for sedatives, so he could escape the voices by sleeping. This tactic worked for three days, until he started having severe night terrors. The subject repeatedly said that he could see and hear the deceased in his dreams. Only a day later, the subject began to scream and claw at his non-functional eyes, hoping to sense something in the physical world. The hysterical subject now said the voices of the dead were deafening and hostile, speaking of hell and the end of the world. At one point, he yelled “No heaven, no forgiveness” for five hours straight. He continually begged to be killed, but the scientists were convinced that he was close to establishing contact with God. After another day, the subject could no longer form coherent sentences. Seemingly mad, he started to bite off chunks of flesh from his arm. The scientists rushed into the test chamber and restrained him to a table so he could not kill himself. After a few hours of being tied down, the subject halted his struggling and screaming. He stared blankly at the ceiling as teardrops silently streaked across his face. For two weeks, the subject had to be manually rehydrated due to the constant crying. Eventually, he turned his head and, despite his blindness, made focused eye contact with a scientist for the first time in the study. He whispered “I have spoken with God, and he has abandoned us” and his vital signs stopped. There was no apparent cause of death.

You know... the brain is the only organ that named itself. Mine apparently named itself "Let's review worst case scenarios repeatedly until you slip into an exhausting depression and feel like throwing possibly good aspects away to escape the cycle and inevitably repeat the process." I kinda figured it would have chosen a shorter name. One like... "quiet".

Elements of Good Interviewing Meeting the interview goals requires the following on the interviewer’s part: · Interpersonal skills, which put a job candidate at ease and elicit the most accurate responses. · Preparation helps an interviewer cover all job-related questions and avoid saying things that might violate antidiscrimination laws, create an implied employment contract, or misrepresent the job. · Objectivity requires the interviewer to be impartial and unbiased. Interviewers must evaluate a candidate based on the factors that predict future job performance. · Good recordkeeping supplies the information needed to compare different candidates and documents the screening process in case a rejected candidate challenges the hiring decision.

I am always amazed at the interest that is created by personal life decisions. You consider radical dietary changes--that aren't actually radical on any level. Especially since you were 90% there anyhow. twenty years ago i would have passionate speeches and work hard to convince you my motives. If i go vegan it's not to make a statement. It's a response--personal ethics--and i am not even trying to recruit others. So why so many people playing devil's advocate trying to convince me that there are other alternatives? Or ruses attempting to trick me philosophically into a corner? I don't do that to people so it is beyond my understanding.

"We are not being punished; we're doing an exceptional job of that ourselves. When a child plays with matches and burns himself, his mother doesn't need to punish him for him to learn his lesson. The child learns through the inevitable consequences of his behaviour; dreadful pain, seared skin and the emotions that these elicit. Hopefully he'll learn from his mistake and no further intervention will be required in the future. For some reason, humanity as a collective is completely unable to follow this instinctive process, our ability to reason has become a curse. Rather than seeing and learning the obvious truth, we jump through mental hoops to find the most incongruous explanations possible. As things currently stand, we have once again forced ourselves into a tight corner and our possibility of escaping diminishes with every act of denial. Science has shown us that human beings have an ability that other creatures on this planet lack. We are able, if we so wish, to comprehend a more inclusive perspective; to facilitate an expanded consciousness. This ability can be used to either cooperate with or defy purpose and truth; that's free will. "

Email to a friend: I can feel the hole you must have with {partner} leaving. It is hard to feel it i suspect. and then perhaps guilt is mixed in for your apparent role in her departure. i encourage you to look into the hole and identify anything that looks like guilt and let it go. My work with A Course In Miracles is the way i personally manage to do that. As i let go of the guilt the despair also leaves. now that it has once again departed it seems like it was not real. it was illusionary despair. how could it have been real if it is not here now? but i know when i am in it that it takes me over as reality. thank you for your continuing love. my poem got some praise on my own wall. not quite accolades but perhaps some murmurs of appreciation and understanding. i love my wall so much. it is the centre of my life creativity process communion connectivities and the bits of my writings that are in private group are even more juicy and salubrious. none of them have much value beyond the moment they are written by my fingers and elicit whatever more or less instantaneous responses from whomever of my FB imaginary friend who happen to want to play in that moment. without my wall i'd be .. wall-less. with my wall i am able to feel i have all i need in this moment. we are on a journey. have a good day {Bilbo} my friend..

Peter knew the danger of preaching Jesus. He knew the hostility it could elicit. He knew that by doing the will of God an preaching he would be taking his life in his hands. Still, he had no choice. He had to preach. He had to speak rhe name Jesus. As he told the authorities, he could do nothing else. After the thing he had seen and heard-after the powerful touch he had received from the Holy Spirir of God-he felt compelled to preach the gospel. When we have genuine encounter with Jesus, when He transformed our hearts and minds an empower us and emboldens us, we have no choice-we must preach the gospel, we must speak the Word of God. Acts 3

Is This for Me? Absolutely! Your needs and the Olympic athlete’s differ by degree not kind. Increased power, strength, cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, flexibility, stamina, coordination, agility, balance, and coordination are each important to the world’s best athletes and to our grandparents. The amazing truth is that the very same methods that elicit optimal response in the Olympic or professional athlete will optimize the same response in the elderly. Of course, we can’t load your grandmother with the same squatting weight that we’d assign an Olympic skier, but they both need to squat. In fact, squatting is essential to maintaining functional independence and improving fitness. Squatting is just one example of a movement that is universally valuable and essential yet rarely taught to any but the most advanced of athletes. This is a tragedy. Through painstakingly thorough coaching and incremental load assignment CrossFit has been able to teach anyone who can care for themselves to perform safely and with maximum efficacy the same movements typically utilized by professional coaches in elite and certainly exclusive environments.

Huelll Howser, RIP: He was respectful of everyone. He never found anyone too insignificant for him to be interested in what they did and how they did it. His folksy style made people feel at ease, he never intimidated people. You knew when you watched him that nothing was fake. He really was interested in people he met anywhere anytime, and people sensed that. He was able to elicit information from people who would never have talked to another interviewer. There will be copies, but he was the original, always sincere. He will be missed, I don't know that he would have ever known how much...

To have a successful relationship with our loved ones and society at large, we need to understand and care about other peoples’ needs, desires and feelings. as we would like them to reciprocate .its our duty and obligation to imagine what life is like for another person. we need to ephathise with our neighbors coz Without love our communication with others will amount to one-way traffic. Worst, we will be acting and behaving according to our self-interest and are bound to run into problems. No man is an island, no woman either! We grow up in relationships with many people – parents, brothers and sisters, cousins, uncles and aunts, classmates,friends and neighbors. we all constitute a society, community,nation in that order, When we understand ourselves as well as others, we are better prepared to communicate our needs and desires. We will be more equipped to say what we want people to know, wher we want to be ,what we want to achieve ,present our thoughts and ideas and tackle delicate issues without offending others. At the same time, we will be able to elicit support from others, and win their understanding. love can help us to accept others, who may be very different from ourselves. This can improve social interactions, especially, in situations of ethnic or cultural diversity in every society.
