TIP OF THE DAY
8 Ways to Win Every Argument


1. Be prepared.
A good lawyer wouldn't dream of walking into the courtroom without reliable data, credible quotes, and background research. While you don't need the paperwork of a professional attorney, you shouldn't enter an argument without preparation either. Organize your ideas beforehand, anticipate your opponent's arguments, and think of logical rebuttals. Remember, being prepared will make you more confident and convincing.

2. Assess your opponent.
When it comes to debate, it's important to know who you're dealing with. So, carefully consider your opponent's strengths and weaknesses, as well as their goals and concerns. If you understand what your opponent attempts to achieve through the argument, you'll be more likely to come up with good rebuttals and even solutions that can satisfy both sides.

3. Stay on message.
In the midst of a lively debate, it can be hard to stay focused. But according to experts, it's a critical part of rhetorical success. In fact, many politicians are famous for their ability to consistently drive home the same key message, no matter what. To follow their lead, write down a series of talking points beforehand, then remind yourself to return to those points again and again.

4. Admit your mistakes.
Although it may be tempting to blame your opponent, you may achieve better results by admitting any ways in which you were wrong. In a recent study published in the Journal of Management, researchers found that people who are wronged in a business transaction were more likely to reconcile if they were offered a sincere apology. By taking responsibility, your opponent will be less defensive, which will enable you to move the conversation in a more productive direction.
5. Build consensus.
Rather than viewing a debate as a combative act, take a tip from the Dale Carnegie classic How to Win Friends and Influence People, and see the encounter as an opportunity to build consensus for your point of view. Along these lines, try to communicate with your opponent in a way that's pleasant, friendly, and collaborative, rather than hostile. This way, he or she will be more likely to agree with you.

6. Give them credit.
Sometimes the best way to get what you want is to subtly manipulate the conversation so that you opponent thinks it was their idea all along. This way, your opponent can have the satisfaction of thinking they came to the conclusion on their own, and you'll walk away with the results you want. It's a bit like a Jedi mind trick--and it can be an extremely effective technique.

7. Be a good listener.
All too often, people try to win an argument by outtalking their opponent, but the real key to communication is listening. So refrain from interrupting, pay close attention to what they're saying, and wait until they've had their say to respond. Not only will this make them less likely to attack; by letting them speak freely, you'll have more opportunity to identify the flaws in their argument.

8. Don't lose your temper.
Nothing can make you lose an argument faster than losing your temper. So try to avoid becoming emotional, angry, or aggressive, any of which your opponent will recognize as a sign of weakness. Instead, remember to focus on the three C's--calm, cool, and collected.

Tips for You and Your Child to Enjoy Gardening


1. Choosing the Plants: Remember that the garden space is small, so stick to a handful of varieties. Include some flowers as well as some veggies. Bright flowers at child height, sunflowers. Every kid is amazed at anything that grows 8 feet tall.

2. Starting Seeds: Let the kids help with starting the seeds. Some of the seeds may be to small for little fingers, but they can always be the helper who covers them with soil.

3. Put the Garden Where They Will See It: To start the garden, pick a sunny spot in the backyard near where the kids play or often walk by. The more they see their garden, the more they'll notice changes. If you don't have a yard, you can still have a garden in pots on a patio or inside on a windowsill, maybe even in their room.

4. Playing with Dirt: Remember that kids love playing with dirt. Let them help you prepare the soil, even if all they are capable of is stomping on the clumps. Kid sized tools will make them feel even more a part of the project.

5. Identify the Garden as Theirs: Mark each plant with the tag or seed packet it came with, so that the kids can see what the flowers or vegetables will look like. Also make a sign for the whole garden with the child’s name, so everyone can see that it's their garden.

6. Playing with Water: Playing with water is right up there with playing with dirt. Give the kids a small watering can to use on their garden. Show them how to gently let the water go right to the roots of the plants. Hoses are just asking for trouble.

7. Let Them Make Their Own Mistakes: Sometimes adults don't have a lot of patience either. Let the kids have control of their garden. If it's messy, it's their mess. Let them enjoy it and take pride in their own piece of land.

TIP OF THE DAY
Tips for staying safe on the road


Fatigue
Do not drive at times when you would normally be asleep.

Alcohol
Plan ahead to avoid driving if you are going to be drinking alcohol. Alcohol can also cause adverse reactions with some medications. If you are unsure, do not drive and consult your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Following distance
As we get older our reaction times gets slower. Leave at least a two second gap between the car ahead and your own. In wet weather, when driving at night or in low visibility, allow a four second gap in wet weather, at night, when towing, and when you are unfamiliar with the road.

Use daytime running lights
This makes it easier for your car to be seen by other drivers and will make it easier for you to see on a dull day.

Head checks
It is important to turn your head to check for vehicles in your blind spot, especially when merging, changing lanes or before moving off at an intersection. Try turning from the waist to make this easier.

Take your time
It is easy to feel pressured to increase speed if there is a line of traffic behind you, or a car tailgating. Pull off the road to let them pass if you need to.

Heavy traffic
Sitting in heavy traffic can be frustrating and make progress slow. Avoid driving in peak hour traffic if possible.

Long trips
Make sure you have a good night’s sleep before you leave and plan regular rest and refreshment breaks during the journey.

WE ALSO FEATURED:
Interviews that took place throughout the year infact some done by the previous presenter, Chanel September. The first one played was interview about Dehydration. It consisted of all the interesting need to knows of dehydration.

TIP OF THE DAY
Tips to prevent holiday stress and depression

Be realistic. As families change and grow, traditions and rituals often change as well. Accept that you may have to let go of others. For example, if your adult children and grandchildren can't all gather at your house as usual.

Set differences aside. Try to accept family members and friends as they are, even if they don't live up to all your expectations.

Practice forgiveness. Set aside grievances until a more appropriate time for discussion. With stress and activity levels high, the holidays might not be conducive to making quality time for relationships.

Stick to a budget. Before you go shopping, decide how much money you can afford to spend on gifts and other items. Then be sure to stick to your budget. Don't try to buy happiness with an avalanche of gifts.

Plan ahead. Set aside specific days for shopping, baking, visiting friends and other activities.

Learn to say no. Believe it or not, people will understand if you can't do certain projects or activities. If you say yes only to what you really want to do, you'll avoid feeling resentful, bitter and overwhelmed.

Take a breather. Spending just 15 minutes alone, without distractions, it may refresh you enough to handle everything you need to do. Steal away to a quiet place, even if it's to the bathroom for a few moments of solitude.

Forget about perfection. You may get stuck late at the office, your sister may dredge up an old argument, and your mother may criticize how you're raising the kids. All in the same day. Accept imperfections in yourself and in others.

WE ALSO FEATURED:
An interview with Jane Bennet from the African Gender Institute. She joined us on our Gender Hub show to discuss Feminism.

TIP OF THE DAY
How to Reconcile a Friendship

Take some time to replay the events of your recent disagreement. Write down your side of the story and then write down your friend's side of the story without being biased. It will help you to gain perspective on where your friend might be coming from and give you a bigger sense of compassion.

Accept the possibility that your friend may not want to reconcile with you. Decide whether or not this move is one that you want to make. Realize that you could be disappointed or feel hurt should your friend decide not to mend the relationship.

Write a letter of apology to your friend outlining how you feel about the situation and read it to her in person or over the telephone. Admit your responsibility in the disagreement without placing blame on the other person. This can be difficult for many people, because it's human nature to want to forgo responsibility for negative outcomes.

Speak to your friend honestly and sincerely when you talk to him during your reconciliation meeting. Relive the good times you had as friends, but give adequate attention to the negative aspects of your friendship. Your job should be to communicate your honesty and authenticity about yourself and your feelings about your relationship.

Give your friend some time to think over the decision to reconcile the friendship. Be careful not to rush them into the decision, since you want it to be a mutual reconciliation. Make a pact with your friend to start over with a completely clean slate that is free from past indiscretions, arguments or disagreements.

When you hear a song you like, don't hold back. Just move, grab a friend.

Be a sport. When everyone is on the floor enjoying themselves join them. Their energy will feed on you.

When knowing you going out to dance or perhaps you know that the karaoke will end with a dance session make sure you wearing comfortable clothing. Nothing ruins a good dance then tight shoes or pants.

Be a sport. When everyone is on the floor enjoying themselves join them. Their energy will feed on you.

In 1998, the Science Museum in London, UK, built a working replica of the Babbage machine, using the materials and work methods available at Babbage's time. It worked just as Babbage had intended.


TIP OF THE DAY
How to Enjoy What You Are Doing No Matter What

Ideally, we can choose to always do what we love without ever needing to think about the things we don’t like. That, unfortunately, is not the case in real world. There are times when we need to do something we don’t like.

1. Look at the long-term benefit

Often, we need to do something we don’t like as a part of something larger which will give us big benefit in the future.It is unlikely that we need to do something we don’t like if there is no long-term benefit involved. By looking at the long-term benefit you will eventually acquire, the activity won’t look as bad as it is.

2. Find what you can learn from it

there is always something we can learn from every experience. If we can’t find one, that’s maybe just because we are too focused on the negative side rather than the positive.

3. Think of doing it for someone you love

Love is a strong source of motivation. If you do something for someone you love, it’s very likely that you can stand even the most boring activity and even enjoy the process. So keep in mind that you do not do this for yourself, but for someone you love.

4. Enjoy the interaction with the people

Your source of fun and enjoyment is not just the activity, but also the interaction with the people there. While the activity itself might not be very exciting, there might be a lot of rich experiences you can get from the interaction with the people. That’s also one reason to enjoy what you are doing.

5. Think and say something positive

If you keep thinking or saying that you don’t like an activity, there is no way you can enjoy it. Always think and say something positive. The points above helps you find positive things you can think and say about. You may think of the long-term benefit you will get, or the nice interaction you have with the people. Focus on these positive things; don’t ever think or say something negative..

6. Gather with passionate people

While you may not always have the luxury to choose who you work with, whenever possible you should choose to gather with positive people. Choose the people who you know are passionate about the activity. Their passion would be contagious. They will give you the energy to stay positive and even enjoy what you are doing.

GENDER HUB
by Denisia Adams

Howzit, how you doing today after all it is the middle of the working week. Not just that it’s also the Morning Cruise’s Gender Hub Show where we focus on gender issues and if not we interview males and females making a difference. We still brought the daily features on the show which is the word of the day, S.A Trivia question, Tips, did you know facts as well as the Quote at the end of the show.


WORD(s) OF THE DAY
Felicity -
intense happiness


S.A TRIVIA QUESTION
Name this well known area along the garden route. It's the center of Nature´s Garden Route and nestles at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountains?

A - Mossel Bay B - George or C - Wilderness

Here’s some info:
George is located in the Cape Wildflower Floral Kingdom next to the coast at the eastern end of the Western Cape Province and has a low rainfall Mediterranean type climate.


DID YOU KNOW

Men loose about 40 hairs a day. Women loose about 70 hairs a day.

If the amount of water in your body is reduced by just 1%, you'll feel thirsty.


TIP OF THE DAY
Tips oh how to improve your communication skills


Slow down People will perceive you as nervous and unsure of yourself if you talk fast. However, be careful not to slow down to the point where people begin to finish your sentences just to help you finish.

Animate your voice Avoid a monotone. Use dynamics. Your pitch should raise and lower. Your volume should be soft and loud. Listen to your local TV news anchor; take notes.

Enunciate your words Speak clearly. Don’t mumble. If people are always saying, “huh,” to you, you are mumbling.

Use appropriate volume Use a volume that is appropriate for the setting. Speak more softly when you are alone and close. Speak louder when you are speaking to larger groups or across larger spaces.

Pronounce your words correctly People will judge your competency through your vocabulary. If you aren’t sure how to say a word, don’t use it.

Use the right words If you’re not sure of the meaning of a word, don’t use it. Start a program of learning a new word a day. Use it sometime in your conversations during the day.

Make eye contact – One technique to help with this is to consciously look into one of the listener’s eyes and then move to the other. Going back and forth between the two (and I hope they only have two) makes your eyes appear to sparkle.

Use gestures – Make your whole body talk. Use smaller gestures for individuals and small groups. The gestures should get larger as the group that one is addressing increases in size.

Don’t send mixed messages – Make your words, gestures, facial expressions, tone, and message match. Disciplining an employee or child while smiling sends a mixed message and, therefore, is ineffective. If you have to deliver a negative message, make your words, facial expressions, and tone match the message.


WE ALSO FEATURED:
We interviewed column writer Anton Pretorius who spoke to us about his article, Questions men hate.

We then were joined by Inspector Stephen Knapp from the Grassy Park Police station. He joined us on our gender hub show to discuss their involved in the 16 days of activism of viloence against woman and children.


QUOTE OF THE DAY
Albert Schweitzer:
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

Lately lots of people have sicknesses, sinus etc. Most instanses your body doesn’t have all its vital vitamins to combat illnesses. People tend to neglect the fact that they need their vitamins. Now yesterday I stumbled on these facts about just how nutritional eggs really are. An average egg has only 0.02g of cholesterol, provides 80 calories, vitamins A, B, D and E, and many minerals including calcium and iron. A study showed that you are at no greater risk of high cholesterol if you eat more than an egg a day, than if you eat less than an egg a week.

DID YOU KNOW

If you come from Manchester, you are a Mancunian. Also did you know The word "Checkmate" in chess comes from the Persian phrase "Shah Mat", which means "the king is dead". Libya has the only flag which is all one color with no writing or decoration on it ……………Now if you didn’t know, guess what… now you know


TIP OF THE DAY
Top health tips

Don’t skip breakfast. Studies show that eating a proper breakfast is one of the most positive things you can do if you are trying to lose weight. Breakfast skippers tend to gain weight. A balanced breakfast includes fresh fruit or fruit juice, a high-fibre breakfast cereal, low-fat milk or yoghurt, wholewheat toast, and a boiled egg.

Brush up on hygiene. Many people don't know how to brush their teeth properly. Improper brushing can cause as much damage to the teeth and gums as not brushing at all. Lots of people don’t brush for long enough, don’t floss and don’t see a dentist regularly. Hold your toothbrush in the same way that would hold a pencil, and brush for at least two minutes. This includes brushing the teeth, the junction of the teeth and gums, the tongue and the roof of the mouth. And you don't need a fancy, angled toothbrush – just a sturdy, soft-bristled one that you replace each month.

Get what you give! Always giving and never taking? This is the short road to compassion fatigue. Give to yourself and receive from others, otherwise you’ll get to a point where you have nothing left to give. And hey, if you can’t receive from others, how can you expect them to receive from you?

Get smelly. Garlic, onions, spring onions and leeks all contain stuff that’s good for you. A study at the Child’s Health Institute in Cape Town found that eating raw garlic helped fight serious childhood infections. Heat destroys these properties, so eat yours raw, wash it down with fruit juice or, if you’re a sissy, have it in tablet form.

Bone up daily. Get your daily calcium by popping a tab, chugging milk or eating yoghurt. It’ll keep your bones strong. Remember that your bone density declines after the age of 30. You need at least 200 milligrams daily, which you should combine with magnesium, or it simply won’t be absorbed.

Berries for your belly. Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries contain plant nutrients which are powerful antioxidants.

Curry favour. Hot, spicy foods containing chillies or cayenne pepper trigger endorphins, the feel-good hormones. Endorphins have a powerful, almost narcotic, effect and make you feel good after exercising. But go easy on the lamb, pork and mutton and the high-fat, creamy dishes served in many Indian restaurants.

Good night, sweetheart. Rest heals the body and has been shown to lessen the risk of heart trouble and psychological problems.


WE ALSO FEATURED:
We spoke to Jeanré Vorrie an economic analyst to speak to us about the globe economic crisis that will see plenty of job cuts in 2009.

BEST OF THE BEST (with a twist)

Hay there! Wow I felt it today! I'm feeling increasingly tired but I will continue going on. As well as the show today was BEST OF THE BEST where we recap on what happened last week. We select the Best words of last week, best S.A trivia question, best did you know facts, best set of tips of last week, and best quote. We did have any interviews because we had to cross over to the kids at the 9th annual Media Kidocracy Konference(MKK). It was in fact the opening today.

MKK is where young people between the ages of 12 and 18 will explore issues that are pertinent to themselves and their peers, as well as use different forms of media to develop a media campaign that will create social awareness. Topics will include freedom of expression, child sexual exploitation, HIV and AIDS, the social identity of "mixed-cultures", how gender is made, and global warming.


As part of a growing need for youth participation in the decision-making process and policy formulation around children's broadcasting, Bush Radio initiated a conference which would tackle these issues and also feed into this debate. The Kidocracy (Kid-democracy) name was created for the event to denote a form of society characterised by social equality and acceptance of young people with representation for and by young people.

BEST words of last week

Blather and inimitable.

Blather : to talk long-windedly about something without making any sense.

inimitable : incapable of being imitated or copied.


BEST S.A trivia question of last week

When was the South African flag first used? A – Human Rights day B – Freedom Day C – Day of Reconcilation.

and the answer(S) is: B – Freedom Day

here’s some info:
South Africa’s national flag was launched and used for the first time on Freedom Day, 27 April 1994. The design and colours are a synopsis of the principal elements of the country’s flag history.
The central design of the flag, beginning at the flag-pole in a “V” form and flowing into a single horizontal band to the outer edge of the fly, can be interpreted as the convergence of diverse elements within South African society, taking the road ahead in unity. The flag was designed by the State Herald.

BEST did you know facts of last week

The tune for the "A-B-C" song is the same as "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." Also did you know: The Madagascan Hissing Cockroach is one of the few insects who give birth to live young, rather than laying eggs. Lastly did you know Cat's urine glows under a blacklight.


Now here’s some interesting facts about men and woman:
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he wants.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't want.

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change and she does.

BEST set of TIPS of last week

How to Deal With People Who Treat You Like a Child

Review yourself. Maybe you are acting very childish and deserve your treatment. Although, overly adult behavior is not encouraged, try to act your age.

Respect your elders. If you treat someone who is significantly older than yourself with disrespect, even though he/she often has increased knowledge of life by living longer and experiencing more, that person will most certainly treat you differently because he/she feels the need to demonstrate your lower age.

Be sure to talk about adult topics and focus on the present and the future. If you find yourself in the situation where it might be easier to talk about things that happened earlier in your life, always try to relate to the grown-up person that you are nowadays, and in what way you don't adopt the childish behaviour you used to. But don't overdo this! If you make it obvious, people will notice.

Never get irritated or angry. Understand that sometimes the reason the person is treating you this way is because he/she feels inferior and doesn't know how to behave in a proper manner. If you react with irritation, the person will feel even more uncomfortable with the situation and be even more eager to "prove" he/she is not inferior to you.

BEST Quote of last week

Ella Williams: Bite off more than you can chew, then chew it.

TIP OF THE DAY
How to Appreciate Music

Music is an art form but it has many purposes other than just listening to it. Ancient civilization artifacts as well as Biblical references suggest that music was considered a powerful influence on physical health and well-being. It has been used as a motivator to do many activities such as work out or just doing house hold chores. When music is used in therapy it can reach even those resistant to other treatment approaches due to its accessibility, familiarity, feelings of security associated with it, and its capacity to express the range of human emotion.

Listen to all types of music from classical to jazz, rap to edm, R&B to country. Be open to anything and you will be surprised at what you like.

Try understanding what point the artist is trying to convey. Many songs have hidden messages that the artist wants you to find.

Get a MP3 player, CD player, or anything of that nature so that you will have music to listen to wherever you go.

Try creating playlists on projectplaylist.com or similar websites and discover other's taste in music, to help you build your own.

Listen to a song repeatedly to understand it's true meaning. Songs that do not sound appealing to you upon first listen might sound better after a few more.

In some cases you will not like a song the first time you hear it, listen to it at least 3 times before you decide that you don't like it for sure.

If you are having trouble understanding what the artist is saying there are many websites that list the lyrics.

Don't dismiss the Oldies. Some of the greatest bands have in fact, been around for a greater deal of time than you would expect. Try listening to "legendary" bands such as the Beatles and Queen.


WE ALSO FEATURED:
We interviewed the enthusiastic members of the Dreamcast, entertainment group from Retreat. They spoke about what they do and how the arts inspires their lives in a positive way.

We then were joined by Authur Sishuba from BASS Entertainment. He spoke to us about Cape House Music Festival taking place this Saturday 6th December at 17:30.
