Answer by sek4me
Oprah’s 2004 season premiere spent the entire show promoting and giving away to every member in the audience, a new Pontiac G6. Seven million dollar’s worth of Detroit metal. Oprah even toured the plant and played vingette’s of that on the show. While we are as far from Oprah’s demo as one could get, it sure seems like the audience was having a good time …screaming, hugging, jumping and just generally looking like a fool as most do on talk shows.

I am not sure Why she did it ….I guess because she can….but I think the audience was hand picked and it was to people in desperate need of a car….

I hope this was helpful ~~~~

Happy Birthday, Oprah!

Ellen had a special gift for Oprah’s birthday! She called to talk to her about it and they had a wonderful, but strange conversation.

If you don’t know how, it’s time you watched this movie.

Coming to theaters October 30, 2009.

Before the Game before players, pimps, and pickup artists, where was the art of seduction truly born?

How To Seduce Difficult Woman is about bringing American men back full circle to the roots of seduction, forged tirelessly throughout the centuries in France.

Throughout the film, we get to witness a motley crew of clueless hopefuls get spoon fed the wit and wisdom that it takes to seduce difficult women, led by their womanizing French teacher, Philippe. Through Philippes seduction course and How-to-Manual, he drops the skills to help this eclectic group of guys to find out how to capture the woman or rather mate of their dreams.

However throughout this school, we get to see if the master womanizer himself has the ability to keep his game tight or if he is the one that really needs schooling. Along the way we also get a taste of real-life NYC street interviews on romance, sex and seduction to see how it all stacks up in real life.

Starring: Louis-Do de Lencquesaing, Stephanie Szostak, Jackie Hoffman, Adam LeFevre, Gregg Bello, Brian Avers

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office says 58-year-old Nola Collier was killed Saturday evening.

Investigators say Collier and her husband were arguing at their home in Middleburg, about 30 miles south of Jacksonville.

Brook Collier reportedly got into his car to leave, but Nola Collier tried to stop him.

Public affairs officer Mary Justino says it appears Nola Collier approached the driver’s side door and was run over. She was transported to Orange Park Medical Center where she died.

The crash is believed to have been an accident but Brook Collier has been charged with leaving the scene.

The fact that he was leaving in his car shows that he was trying to avoid further confrontation. I’m sorry someone lost their life in this instance, but a lot can be said for just walking or driving away from an argument. If more people would do it, domestic violence wouldn’t be such a problem in today’s society.

As a former victim of domestic abuse, I MOSTLY agree with you. However… the abuser usually has broken the victim down to the point where s/he believes their abuser is the best "partner" they will ever find and the victim is desperate to hold on. I don’t know if this was an abusive relationship, and, I certainly don’t want to cast doubt on someone innocent and now dealing with tragedy by trying to just get out of the way, but, there is another possible side of the story.
Even still – if, ultimately, she was trying to chase him down, even if he meant to, … like "Totally" said.. it would be almost impossible to prove, either way.

It does seem unlikely that it was an accident, with them being in an argument and all, but, in his defense, it is possible. I was in a similar situation (REALLY similar) 20 years ago, and, had it not been for the grace of God, I could have been killed. I was the one pursuing, and, was also in the wrong. My ex would NEVER believe I just admitted to that.

Abigail Williams seduces John Proctor in The Crucible

Slaves, Puritans and Poisoned Wheat
Popular history has tried to find pat answers to the causes of the Massachusetts witch trials of 1692. Convenient myths point an accusing finger at the severe and unforgiving Puritans. Others point to a dark-skinned Caribbean slave who supposedly brought witchcraft to Massachusetts from Barbados, or hallucinogenic microbes in the wheat causing the girls of the village to convulse and appear bewitched. In fact, these explanations have little basis in reality. Tituba and her husband, John Indian, black slaves from the Caribbean had no central role in the trials. There is no mention in any of the historical records of Tituba dancing in the woods with the girls, or practicing witchcraft.
While the Puritan religion makes an easy target for blame, most of the ministers of the day signed petitions declaring the innocence of the accused. In general, they were against the tactics of the Salem Judges.
There was even a theory that blamed the seizures of the girls on a microbial infection of the local wheat. In fact, the erratic behavior and gyrations of the accusers was carefully choreographed. This was not random, pathological movement caused by infected food.
There is no easy, convenient and neat explanation. The tragic events in Essex County, Massachusetts were initiated by ill-behaved girls who accused for sport. The court made a tragic situation worse. The accused, presumed guilty by the judges, were tortured until they pleaded guilty, accused others and were set free. If they pleaded innocent, they were executed. One man refused to plead at all and was tortured to death over a three day period. With these judicial tactics it is easy to understand why the number of accused increased dramatically over a short period of time.
What makes tragedies like this all the more tragic is that we do not always learn by our mistakes. How many “witch trials” have there been since 1692 and who have been the accused?

"You’ve got to study people. If you go to Actor’s Studio, fine. If you take lessons from someone, fine. There are all kinds of workshops and comedy stores and dramatic workshops… but you must be an observer. You must look at everything around you."

…..item 4a)…. A Game of Pool (1961) …

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia … en.wikipedia.org/

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Game_of_Pool_(1961)

"A Game of Pool" is an episode of the American television anthology series The Twilight Zone. According to Serling, it’s "the story of the best pool player living and the best pool player dead."

— Plot

It is after hours at Lister’s Pool Room in Chicago, and once more pool shark Jesse Cardiff is alone, polishing his pool game. Jesse bitterly muses that he would be considered the greatest pool player of all time, if it were not for the memory of the late Fats Brown overshadowing him. "I’d give anything, anything to play him one game!" he declares aloud.

"At your service!" comes a sudden voice from the corner of the room. It is indeed James Howard Brown — "known to [his] friends as Fats" — who has been dead for 15 years, but who has come from the afterlife to answer Jesse’s challenge. Fats tells Jesse it is time for him to put his money where his mouth is and play a game of pool to see who the best truly is. But Fats ups the stakes: If Jesse wins, he will indeed be acknowledged as the greatest. If he loses, it means his life.

Jesse is undaunted, and the ultimate high stakes pool game begins. All throughout the game, Fats laments that Jesse has done nothing with his life but play pool. Jesse ignores Fats, convinced that he is just trying to distract him from the game. When it comes down to one final, easy shot for Jesse to win the title, Fats warns him that he does not understand the burdens that come with being the best ever. Jesse ignores him and sinks the shot. He exults in his victory; he is now the best ever.

Fats’s only response is to thank Jesse for beating him. Jesse is angered, declaring that Fats is a sore loser. Only years later, after he has died, does Jesse finally realize what Fats was warning him of. Jesse, as the new pool champion, is obliged to spend his afterlife defending his title, going from pool room to lonely pool room (his next destination: Mason’s Pool Hall, Sandusky, Ohio), to play against challenger after challenger, just as Fats had to do until he finally lost. Meanwhile, Fats, finally free of his obligations as champion, has gone fishing.

— Alternate ending

Johnson’s script originally featured an alternate ending in which Jesse loses the game. Seeing that Jesse is bedazzled that he has lost a life-or-death game and is still alive, Fats explains that he will die "as all second raters die: you’ll be buried and forgotten without me touching you. If you’d beaten me, you’d have lived forever." This ending was eventually filmed when this episode was remade in 1989, during the first revival of The Twilight Zone. It also featured a different closing narration:

“Lives of great men all remind us we can make our lives sublime…and departing, leave behind us footprints on the sands of time, on the Earth, as we know it, and…in the Twilight Zone.

More is never enough.
by Rabbi Benjamin Blech

October 1, 2013 / 27 Tishrei 5774
Published: March 20, 2011

www.aish.com/j/as/The_Archenemy_of_Happiness.html

I used to think that the main goal of American business was to make people happy. Create new products so consumers have a better quality of life. Add new bells and whistles to existing technologies to offer a more satisfying experience to the users.

I thought happiness was the objective. But the truth is just the opposite: billions of dollars are spent to figure out how to make us feel unhappy. And unless we understand the secret motivation behind the desire of marketers to make us feel discontented with what we have, we are going to fall victim to a never ending cycle of unhappiness.

I realized it recently when I heard a friend bemoaning his fate. Not too long ago, but almost a previous era in terms of technological innovation, he bought the new iPod. He was ecstatic. But it didn’t last. What a shock to discover that there is now newer and better model on the market. His formerly beloved iPod is now an ancient relic. How could he possibly be happy with it?

Since new is always better, there is a very short window of time for anyone to feel satisfied with what they have. To make sure that the contentment of consumers is very quickly terminated, there is a multibillion dollar industry whose purpose is solely the systematic propagation of unhappiness: advertising. Its goal, as admitted by advertising guru B. Earl Puckett, is summed up in this succinct credo: "It is our job to make men and women unhappy with what they have."

The "game" of creating unhappiness is a multifaceted industry. We can perhaps see it best in the world of fashion.

Big business brainwashes consumers to believe that they need more.

Oscar Wilde once said, "Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months." Why do fashions change so quickly? One week you’re an outcast if you’re not wearing a certain kind of sneakers. The next week, you’re a geek if you haven’t switched to another brand. Why must you constantly have something else?

Because big business needs consumers, so consumers have to be brainwashed to believe that they need more – something newer, something better, something that will finally make us happy when we get it.
Of course once we buy it the cycle starts all over again.

Why do we go along with this? Why do we buy into a belief that is virtually guaranteed to make us unhappy since there will always be something newer that we don’t yet have?

Because we’ve bought into the notion that happiness comes from having more, instead of the brilliant insight of the Talmudic sages that "Who is rich? One who is content with his portion."

More is never the answer. More has no limits. More seduces us with the unspoken promise of contentment when its very premise is that you dare not be happy with what you already have. If more is the goal, when can you possibly say you’ve achieved it? No matter where you’re at in life more will still beckon you, using its stock in trade argument that you can’t possibly be happy as long as there are still things that you don’t possess.

— What’s Your Number?

In the old film Key Largo, Edward G. Robinson, in the role that defined him, plays a gangster whose life is filled with violence and deceit. In the film he holds a family hostage. Someone asks him what makes him want to live this kind of life but try as he might Robinson can’t answer this question. So one of the hostages, played by Humphrey Bogart, suggests an answer: "I know what you want. You want more." Robinson’s face brightens as he says, "Yeah! That’s it! That’s what I want. I want more."

Fast forward more than half a century and hear how the same theme is repeated in Oliver Stone’s "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," capturing what motivates those who are ready to destroy their friends and their families in pursuit of unlimited wealth. In a meeting between the young Jake (Shia LaBeouf) and the megalomaniac, Bretton James (Josh Brolin), Jake puts the question to Bretton, who has already caused the suicide of a competitor and the destruction of another firm with false rumors, "So what is your number?”

When Bretton doesn’t understand, Jake explains that everyone has a really far out number that represents total success, the ability to get out of the race knowing that he is now the victor. “So what’s your number,” Jake repeats. Bretton considers and after a few moments of silence responds with one word: "More.”

The desire for more is our contemporary idol – and we worship it at our own peril.

Sadly, we transfer the idea that only something newer and different will bring us joy into our personal lives as well.

We can replace our insatiable demand for more with the awareness that we have more than enough.

Countless studies have shown that the secret of happy marriages is the ability to feel contentment with their partners in spite of the lack of perfection. True love does not come by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly. My father would tell people that he had the most beautiful wife, the best cook in the world, the greatest mother to his children. Did he really believe that my mother was truly the most outstanding woman in the world? Yes, he did, because he chose to ignore her faults and overemphasize her qualities. He wasn’t interested in more. He knew that the woman he married was a gift from God.

The divorce rate today is testament to the results of worshipping more. “Why should I be satisfied with this person if there might be someone newer or better out there? I could have more than I have now.”

Believing that more automatically leads to joy condemns us to an endless pursuit as we ignore those parts of life that really give it meaning and joy.

But we can stop being the creators of our unhappiness by replacing our insatiable demand for more with the awareness that we have more than enough.

Kurt Vonnegut and novelist Joseph Heller were once talking at a party hosted by a billionaire hedge fund manager. Vonnegut pointed out that their wealthy host had made more money in one day than Heller ever made from his celebrated novel Catch-22.

Heller responded, "Yes, but I have something he will never have: enough.”
