Good Day! How are you doing? I hope that you had an absolutely fabulous on this oh so super Friday. Today is the 6th of June 2008 and that of course means that it is the Friday edition of the Morning Cruise where we focusing on Arts, Culture and Entertainment…So yesterday I made a mini confession and later on I’m going to make another one mmm I not going to say anything more… The start of the weekend is here how did you feel this beautiful morning when you woke up were you happy, sad or did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed…

Moving onto today’s show we had all the usuals such as you’re Word of the Day, your SA Q&A, Information Guide, JobShop, and you’re Tip of the Day.

We also featured interviews on:

· Nkrisma Skoto from the Cape Town Opera and we’ll be chatting about a production called Werther. If you want to attend the production Werther then call (021) 410 9928.

· We featured an interview with Stereotypes…A seven piece live Hip Hop band with a slight difference. If you would like to know more about the band or attend one of their performances call Tanya on 073 240 8873.

Word of the Day:

SPECIOUS - Apparently right; supposedly fair, or just correct

Trivial Question:

Q: Which day do we celebrate women’s day in South Africa?
A: 9 August

Tip of the Day:

Now earlier I spoke about arguments now I’m sure we all had our fair share of arguments, but today I’m going to tell you how to win those arguments and how to fight fair and how to fight right. We all get into arguments from time to time. But how do you deal with those people who consistently want to fight and act like they are always right? Here are five alternative methods for dealing with this type of difficult person.

1. Smile - Deflect the anger. Ask questions designed to get the other person to think about why he or she is upset. It’s very difficult to argue with someone who is smiling and conversing without resistance.

2. Let them think your point of view is their own - To do this requires some detail but is very powerful against extremely stubborn people who will never admit they are wrong. The trick is to ask questions designed to manipulate the person into arriving at your conclusion “on their own.”

3. Admit your mistakes - If you did something wrong or made a mistake, just be humble and admit it. This sounds like you’re conceding defeat, but actually this wins immediately since it takes the combative person completely off guard.

4. Shut up - This is an especially strong technique when you know you’re right and you suspect the other person knows it but isn’t ready to admit it. Let the person fumble and squirm around while you just listen.

5. Do Not Attack - Whatever you do, do not attack the other person. Sure, you might know the exact thing to say to hit ‘em where it hurts.

Quote of the Day:

Richard Armour - Beauty is only skin deep, and the world is full of thin skinned people

It’s time for me to love and leave you. You must have oh so super Friday and weekend. Let’s chat again tomorrow…Much Love…Peace.
