No matter your education, job, or in your community, you need to be able to persuade and influence people. Those that do it really well do so in a way that maintains and even builds solid relationships. These are vital not only to help us succeed in our work lives but in our personal lives as well. In his new book “Picking the Low-Hanging Fruit…and Other Stupid Stuff We Say in the Corporate World” James Sudacow gives us some advice on how to succeed in our jobs and lives. Power of an Image (1:00:53) Nicole Dahmen, Ph.D., an associate professor of journalism at the University of Oregon. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But does a picture have the power to change the world? Pictures have been the main staple in media and the most memorable ones are easy to recall: the crying napalm girl, the falling man jumping off the World Trade Center, and most recently the young Syrian refugee who washed up on the shores of Turkey. How much power do these images actually wield? Nicole Dahmen talks about the power of an image. State of US Forests (1:46:51) Thomas Straka, Ph. D., a professor of forestry at Clemson University in South Carolina. Utah’s Brian Head forest fire, once the biggest in the country, burned over 72 thousand acres of land and forest. Currently, crews are still wrapping up and working on containment lines. This brings the question: How much value do US forest contribute to our country? The government is exploring cost cutting measures that may affect the national forest service. Thomas Straka explains the current state of US forests.
