GENDER HUB WEDNESDAY
1. To pronounce; articulate.
A woman attending an art class at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art lost her balance and fell into a century-old Picasso painting, creating a 6-inch-long (15-centimeter-long) vertical tear in the large canvas. The painting, called The Actor, dates to Picasso's Rose Period, when he shifted from the cool tones of his Blue Period to warmer, more romantic hues. According to the museum, the damage did not affect the "focal point of the composition" and the painting will be repaired in time for a major Picasso retrospective featuring some 250 of the artist's works.
TIP OF THE DAY
Practice active listening skills. Part of listening is letting the other person know that you are listening. Make eye contact. Nod. Say "Yes," "I see," "That's interesting," or something similar to give them clues that you are paying attention and not thinking about something else - such as what you are going to say next.
o It is the differences in people--and their conversation--that make them interesting.
o Agreeing with everything can kill a conversation just as easily as disagreeing with everything.
o A person is interesting when they are different from you; a person is obnoxious when they can not agree with anything you say, or if they use the point to make themselves appear superior.
o Try to omit the word "but" from your conversation when disagreeing as this word often puts people on the defensive. Instead, try substituting the word "and", it has less of an antagonistic effect.
