Something You Should Know

07-03-2024 • 48 minutos

I’m sure you have been hit in the head. Maybe you fell and bumped it, or someone accidentally hit you or you got a baseball thrown at you – something. Sooner or later, we all take a shot to the head and often we shrug it off. That may be a mistake. Listen as I explain why. Source: Daniel Amen, M.D. author of “Change Your Brain Change Your Body” (https://amzn.to/3P3Dtld) Every day you have to navigate through life by talking and negotiating and resolving disputes with all the people you encounter. Since we could all likely use a little help with this, I want you to listen to my guest William Ury. He is considered one of the leading authorities on negotiation and conflict. He has worked with the White House, the State Department, the Pentagon, and dozens of Fortune 500 companies. His approach to dealing with people and handling conflict is just brilliant and something everyone should hear. William is author of the book Possible: How We Survive (and Thrive) in an Age of Conflict. (https://amzn.to/3T7issl). Profanity is considered offensive, shocking rude and disrespectful. But could swearing also have benefits? Why do people swear in the first place? And why, since swearing is so common, do people still find it shocking. All these things are tackled in my discussion with Rebecca Roache. She is a senior lecturer in philosophy at Royal Holloway, University of London and author of the book, For F*ck's Sake: Why Swearing is Shocking, Rude, and Fun (https://amzn.to/48DxH0t) Want to keep your kids out of jail? Then you might want to pay attention to how much time they spend doing this one very common and seemingly innocuous activity. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2280397/Can-letting-children-watch-TV-turn-criminals.html PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!
