  • Inside the jealous feud between the Obamas and ‘Hildebeest’ Clintons

    Outwardly, they put on a show of unity — but privately, the Obamas and Clintons, the two power couples of the Democrat Party, loathe each other. “I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,” Bill Clinton said to friends on one occasion, adding he would never forgive Obama for suggesting he was a racist during the 2008 campaign. The feeling is mutual. Obama made ­excuses not to talk to Bill, while the first lady privately sniped about Hillary.

    Are you bad at spotting a lie? New research by Dr. Leanne ten Brinke, a forensic psychologist at the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, and her collaborators, suggests that our instincts for judging liars are actually fairly strong — but our conscious minds sometimes fail us. Luckily, there are signs we can look for when trying to detect a lie. Dr. Lillian Glass, a behavioral analyst and body language expert who has worked with the FBI on unmasking signals of deception, says when trying to figure out if someone is lying, you first need to...
  • NBC: The Big Chill: A dominant Obama meets a cool Putin at G20 (BARF!)

    President Barack Obama was intent on getting the upper hand as he greeted Russia's Vladimir Putin at the G-20 summit on Thursday, according to body language experts who watched the frosty exchange. From a jacket-buttoning pause to a hard-pumping handshake, Obama displayed tell-tale signs of dominance after he alit from a limo in front of St. Petersburg's Konstantin Palace, where Putin waited to meet him, communication experts said. There was no outright hostility, but the chill between the two world leaders — at loggerheads over NSA leaker Edward Snowden and a strike against Syria — was evident in clenched-jaw smiles...

    University advises ‘nodding’ at an assailant will prevent attack Women who are about to be raped at or near the University of Arkansas at Little Rock should nod at their attackers as an alternative to using deadly force, according to that university’s safety expert. Huh? The Arkansas legislature recently gave schools the authority to opt out of the state’s concealed carry laws and thereby ban guns on campus. Most schools have chosen to do so, including Arkansas State University and the University of Arkansas, as reported by The College Fix. The ban extends to even professors and staff members, leaving...

"Detailed receipts show the Tories spent £66,333 hiring the Washington firm SKDKnickerbocker to prepare Mr Cameron for the debates, in which he was widely considered to have been bested by Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg."

    On the radio station I listen to each morning, 97.1 Talk in St. Louis, a regular contributor to the "Allman in the Morning show", Dr. Randy Tobler (who also has his own time slot on Saturday mornings) suggested several times that people watch President Obama's speeches with the sound off and just watch his body language and facial expressions. It is Tobler's assertion that Obama without sound appears to be a very angry man. After reading Dan Zanoza’s interview with Debbie Revor [http://rffm.typepad.com/republicans_for_fair_medi/2009/09/obama-acorn-i-worked-with-the-community-organizer-by-debbie-revor-.html]--who at one time was a legal secretary working in the same law office of Mr. Obama--I commented...

I am stunned that the official White House Blog published this picture and that it is in the public domain. The body language is most revealing. Sergeant Crowley, the sole class act in this trio, helps the handicapped  Professor Gates down the stairs, while Barack Obama, heedless of the infirmities of his friend and fellow victim of self-defined racial profiling, strides ahead on his own. So who is compassionate? And who is so self-involved and arrogant...

    When speaking, behind a podium or on a stage without he does something rather unusual he turns his face and body to sides or moves his entire body towards the audience to shows his desire to empathize and connect with them. However, when we view that on video we may read it differently subconsciously. For example, In the Selma speech he turns his face and body to his right side then left again and again, rather than focus to the front and center. Front and center speaking is read as more honest, more forthright and powerful. On the tapes speech...

    BLINK and you would have missed it. The expression of disgust on former US president Bill Clinton's face during his speech to the Democratic National Convention as he says "Obama" lasts for just a fraction of a second. But to Paul Ekman it was glaringly obvious. "Given that he probably feels jilted that his wife Hillary didn't get the nomination, I would have to say that the entire speech was actually given very gracefully," says Ekman, who has studied people's facial expressions and how they relate to what they are thinking for over 40 years. It seems that Clinton's micro-expression...

    Obama has a habit of touching people on the shoulder or on the arm when he greets them. There are endless photos of Obama doing this. At first I thought it was his way of drawing people in by being likable and friendly, but now I think there is a more sinister motive. It's all about dominance. Looking at the photos it's easy to see who is in charge. This touching technique makes Obama seem large while at the same time making others look small.McCain will confront this at the debates. If it were me I'd gently take his hand...

    RFFM.org Commentary He's a shameless self-promoter. He bloviates with the best of them and admits it. And he has one of the most entertaining political shows on television. I'm talking about Bill O'Reilly and The O'Reilly Factor (FNC--Fox News Channel). However, besides the incredibly useless segment titled, "Body Language" with guest Tanya Reiman, O'Reilly's plan to have Americans boycott purchases of gasoline on Monday's is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard. For those of you who aren't familiar with the Body Language segment, it is almost as bad as his weekly interview with ...

    Wait a second. Isn't the rap on Hillary that she succeeds despite her weak communication skills? That she's substance over a decided lack of style? But GMA managed this morning to find two body language and communication experts to declare that Hillary is particularly gifted in non-verbal communication. In a segment beginning at 7:40 A.M. EDT today, ABC's Claire Shipman first interviewed body-language expert Janine Driver. Shipman rolled tape of Hillary giving her classic head nod.View video here. ABC CORRESPONDENT CLAIRE SHIPMAN: What's the nodding?BODY LANGUAGE EXPERT JANINE DRIVER: It's a non-verbal clue that says "I'm listening, I'm paying attention."...

    Let's say you're all set for your big interview—the one you're confident will change your career. You know you can wow the person across the desk with your accomplishments. Or you're ready to give the presentation that reflects months of hard work and success. But before you even open your mouth, the rest of your body has already spoken volumes. What does your body language say? Does it say you're confident, smart, and enthusiastic—or just the opposite? Only a small percentage of communication involves actual words: 7%, to be exact. In fact, 55% of communication is visual (body language, eye...

    Debate over Muslim women wearing the full-face veil has been raging. So is it important for communication to see more than someone's eyes? The eyes are the window to the soul, so the proverb goes. But do we need to see more? Jack Straw's comments about asking Muslim women in his surgery to remove the face veil - and the tribunal case over a Muslim classroom assistant wearing the niqab - have sparked much debate. But does it really obstruct communication if we can only see the eyes? In one-on-one contact, in the same physical place, the eyes are the...
