Wendi Deng Murdoch Smacks Pie-Throwing Protester Who Targeted Rupert Murdoch at Phone-Hacking

Wendi Deng Murdoch, the third wife of media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, is trending after she leapt to her husband's defense—literally—during his testimony before the British Parliament. As the chairman of the News Corporation was answering questions about the phone-hacking scandal that is rocking his media empire, a protester burst into the hearing room and tried to "pie" him. Mrs. Murdoch, a former volleyball player, sprung into action, slapping the assailant as he lunged at his target. No one was injured. The pie thrower was arrested and the hearing resumed about 10 minutes later once order was restored.

The Power of Words

This short film illustrates the power of words to radically change your message and your effect upon the world. At Purplefeather we provide powerful, optimised web content to get you noticed online. Homage to Historia de un letrero, The Story of a Sign by Alonso Alvarez Barreda Music by: Giles Lamb Filmed by Director Seth Gardner.
Cast: Bill Thompson, Beth Miller

It's a powerful message, but I have mixed feelings about an advertising company using the fate of blind people to promote their own business.

Yes this clip can do a lot of good and make you feel more connected with those poor people, but it is also a standard marketing strategy to create strong emotional triggers and then link them to a product.

Not saying this clip is bad, just undecided what to think of it.

Blogger: I see the power of words. Just change the words, the effect is so much different.

Review for Limitless by KC Goh

Limitless is a 2011 American techno-thriller film directed by Neil Burger and starring Bradley Cooper, Abbie Cornish, and Robert De Niro. It is based on the 2001 novel The Dark Fields by Alan Glynn with the screenplay by Leslie Dixon. The film was released in the United States and Canada on March 18, 2011. It was released in the United Kingdom on March 23, 2011.

Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) is a writer who lives in New York City and has recently been dumped by his girlfriend Lindy (Abbie Cornish) in addition to failing to meet the deadline to turn in his new book, which he hasn't written yet. One day, Eddie comes across Vernon Gant (Johnny Whitworth), the brother of his ex-wife Melissa Gant (Anna Friel). Vernon is a drug dealer who offers Eddie a sample of a new drug, NZT-48. Eddie accepts, and, much to his surprise, the drug increases his intelligence and improves his focus.
Eddie asks Vernon for more of the drug, and Vernon agrees. When Eddie goes to Vernon's apartment, he finds Vernon dead. Eddie finds a stash of NZT hidden in the oven alongside a book with several names and some money, which he takes for his own personal gain. With Vernon's money and the NZT, Eddie creates a new image for himself and abandons writing to enter the stock market. He becomes rich at an incredibly fast pace and is soon employed by the powerful businessman Carl Van Loon (Robert DeNiro). Eddie also gets back together with Lindy. Meanwhile, he feels that he is being followed by a man in a tan coat (Tomas Arana). Soon, the side-effects of NZT appear.
Eddie fails to accomplish a task assigned to him by Carl because of the lack of NZT and fears he might have killed a woman. He learns that withdrawal from the drug causes death or a serious damage of the mental faculties. Eddie is warned to reduce the dosages until he can stop, before it's too late.
Eddie tries to do so, but, with the lack of it, he starts to feel ill. Eddie pays a chemist to produce more NZT and, in the meantime, tries to recover his stolen stash.
A year later, Eddie has had his book published (the book's title, Illuminating the Dark Fields, linking to the novel that inspired the film) and is running for United States Senate and is further considered to be a potential candidate for the United States Presidency. In the midst of his Senate campaign, Carl approaches Eddie and informs him that he has purchased the pharmaceutical company that created NZT and forced the closure of Eddie's lab. Carl offers Eddie an unlimited supply of NZT; however, Eddie must approve Carl's agenda in return. Eddie refuses the offer, informing Carl that he no longer takes NZT and has in fact experimented with and created a better version of NZT that lacks its side effects and works even better. As they are talking outside of Eddie's campaign office, Carl expresses his doubt regarding Eddie's new and improved NZT analogue. To prove it, Eddie points to a van up the street and tells him it will crash into the taxi cab stopped further up the street, even predicting the exact timing of the event. Carl turns around to watch the driver of the van, who is distracted with his cell phone, driving too fast and not looking up in time, resulting in him crashing into the cab. This appears to be enough evidence for Carl and he gets into his vehicle to depart from the scene.

Scientific accuracy
Physics professor James Kakalios said it was plausible that medical science could improve intelligence, but that neurochemistry was not advanced enough for it to be possible currently. Kakalios also said the notion used in the film that human beings can only access 24% of their brains (though the film never explicitly states that this is the case, with one character only once saying "you know they say we can only access 24% of our brain?") is a myth; 100% of it is used at different times. Moreover, if 100% of the brain's neurons were to fire simultaneously, all of the available oxygen would be consumed and the individual would most likely die or suffer severe neurological trauma. Kakalios said if such a pill existed, a person running out of the supply could actually experience a rebound effect, and "might become really stupid".[9]
This blogger’s reviews
Limitless is entertaining. If we could just take a pill and become son intelligence, we like to do it if there is no side effect.
In the market, there are people who can predict the future and these people can go into your past lives and see what you have done and try to correct it so that fate in the future which is now the present times could improve. This kind of courses can sell like a hot cake.
The 10% of brain myth is the widely-perpetuated myth that most or all humans only make use of 10 percent of their brains. It has been misattributed to people including Albert Einstein.[1] By association, it is suggested that a person may harness this unused potential and increase intelligence.
Though factors of intelligence can increase with training, the idea that large parts of the brain remain unused is without foundation. Although many mysteries regarding brain function remain, every part of the brain has a known function. Therefore, when we said that we only use 10 % or 24 % of the brain, it is actually not true.
The fact that if we can think with clarity and be able to learn things in a short span of time, we can become successful and we can be very rich. The improved intelligence could just change the perception of people towards you.
If we don’t have the pill, what should we do. We should read more and trying to improve our intelligence by using the available techniques as of today. We should do meditation and try to acquire the psychic powers so that we can make better decisions. Of couse, there is currently no scientifically verified body of evidence supporting the existence of such powers.
You will love this movie, it opens up a lot of imagination and possibilities. Of course, there is always a difference between reality and myth. Take a pill or you just have to work for it.
