A List Of Fallacious Arguments attacking the person instead of attacking his argument. For example, "Von Daniken's books about ancient astronauts are worthless because he is a convicted forger and embezzler." (Which is true, but that's not why they're worthless.) Another example is this syllogism, which alludes to Alan Turing's homosexuality: Turing thinks machines think. (Note the equivocation in the use of the word "lies".)

How journalists use Twitter | Articles | Public Relations I've tweeted three times in the last 12 days. Three. Yet I'm on Twitter constantly. I have 15 active columns on TweetDeck. At any time I have a dozen Twitter app alerts on my phone. What the hell am I doing, and how do I source stories without tweeting much? 1. As a senior editor at Thrillist, I oversee our four biggest editions: San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. 2. Type this into the Twitter search bar: bar opening near: "san francisco" within: 25mi. You'll get any tweets mentioning the words "bar" and "opening" within 25 miles of San Francisco. 3. If you don't include hashtags in your tweets, you're doing something wrong. 4. Say we want to write about a new whiskey, but there's no contact information for the brand anywhere except a fledgling Twitter account. 5. I get 1,000 emails a day. A zillion times out of a zillion I'll reply on Twitter, and here's why: Being forced to distill a pitch down to 140 characters or fewer is the ultimate PR exercise.

Making an Ancient Egyptian Mummy Making an Ancient Egyptian Mummy The ancient Egyptians believed that, after death, the body was the home of the individual's spirit as he or she journeyed through the after-life. If the body was destroyed through decomposition, there was danger that the spirit would also be destroyed. Preserving the body in as close to its life-like condition would assure the preservation of the individual's spiritual essence. It is believed that the process of mummification was developed at least 2,500 years before the birth of Christ. The Greek historian Herodotus described the ancient Egyptian methods of mummification around the year 450 BC. "The embalmers, when a corpse is brought to them, show the relatives wooden models of dead bodies, as accurate as a painting. "First, they remove the brain through the nostrils with a curved iron implement, getting some of it out like this and the rest by pouring in solvents. "That is the most expensive way.

How I Taught Brian Rose the Muscle-Up It’s a cold winter Saturday morning and I'm finishing off a workout at Primrose Hill in one of London's finest outdoor exercise areas. Out the corner of my eye I spot the founder of London Real, Mr Brian Rose. Being a fan of the YouTube show, I introduce myself and ask him what he's working on. "The muscle up,” he replies. The bar muscle up can end up being the bane of a man's life. To master it, let’s break it down from a functional point of view, with the main priority being to get you over that bar in one snappy movement. The first thing Brian learnt when we started was a new pattern of movement. For now, I want to solely focus and refer to this movement as the ‘elbow press’. The elbow press is ‘NOT A PULL’. Below I have broken down exactly what I taught Brian. Movement 1 Can I have a knuckle up grip on a bar?

Oliver Emberton 3 Ways to Sleep Like a Silverback Gorilla There is something magical and primal about sleeping under the stars but its not the romantic aspect that we are interested in. The percentage of CO2 in the air of a normal bedroom rises drastically overnight as you count your Zs. It rises high enough that you are effectively poisoning yourself and starving your brain. So how do you know if this is happening to you? As soon as I noticed this I made one very small adjustment, I slept with the window wide open. We all know the mantra that sleeping in complete darkness makes for better sleep and it is very true; however complete darkness has a very drastic drawback that can prevent you from achieving Silverback-like Alpha Male sleep quality. Our pineal gland, the 'thermostat' for the body and mind is an organ that is almost directly driven and reset by the circadian rhythm. Your own mind and body expect to be woken by the sun and have over millions of years of evolution based a lot of hormonal systems on this assumption.
