TED Talk: Amy Cuddy Says Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are

In a double-header TED Talk weekend, social psychologist Amy Cuddy discusses body language and how building a sense of control over ourselves -- even if we start out faking it a bit — will most likely cause transformation.

TED has partnered with Huffington Post in a new project called TEDWeekends, a curated weekend program anchored in an exceptional TED Talk, an original blog post from the featured speakers, along with thoughts, reponses and related articles from the Huff Po community.

Cuddy Has Good Advice for Progressive Women Politicos

I just posted the video in a secret society group for progressive women politicos. Indeed, we PA ladies are tired of living in one of the smartest states in America, and yet we are in about 46th place in terms of political representation in Congress and our state legislature.

It seems that an intervention is required, and we’re working on it for the next election cycle in 2014. We can’t change the Republican party in this state, but let Democrats take a heads up that a rebellion in forming among the ladies.

When it came to my attention recently that even PA’s progressive Democrats are run by men only, I declared no more taxation without representation. And so I booted this TED Talk right into our underground community as a much-needed heads up on how to believe in ourselves and act accordingly.

In a followup to this outstanding TED Talk, Amy Cuddy makes the key point that many leaders focus so much on being powerful and competence that they fail to communicate warmth and trustworthiness.

Says Cuddy, “You must understand the people you’re trying to influence or lead by building trust first before demonstrating competence and power. You must be able to show them that you understand them — and, better yet, that you can relate to them. By doing that, you’re laying the groundwork for trust. And it’s only then that they can really hear you and be open to your ideas. Trust is the conduit for influence; it’s the medium through which ideas travel. If they don’t trust you, your ideas are just dead in the water. If they trust you, they’re open and they can hear what you’re offering. Having the best idea is worth nothing if people don’t trust you.

Spittin' Sisters Call for Statement from Michigan's Governor Snyder l Liberty Chooses Her Own Destiny l Harlots in the Kitchen

The Spittin’ Sister in Michigan is asking for your help. There is the slightest possibility that Michigan Governor Rick Snyder knows that the Republican War on Women has spun out of control in Michigan, censoring freedom to utter the word “vagina” on the House floor, when the same word is used three times in the legislation passed by this body.

See Eve Ensler’s ‘The Vagina Monologues’ Will Be Read With Eve Ensler at Michigan Capitol June 18th.

Governor Snyder has proven he is willing to veto negative and damaging legislation handed to him by his party by rejecting voter suppression laws in Michigan.

Now is the time to demand that Michigan’s Governor make a statement regarding the draconian anti-women legislation bills being introduced, and passed, through Michigan legislative processes. 

Since the debacle of MI HR 5711-13 became news fodder for the entire nation and beyond the Governor has still not denounced the lack of progress in economic areas while his party continues to pander to Catholic Bishops, Right to Life of Michigan and Family Values groups and voters, many of those with strong West Michigan ties to Snyder’s home turf.

Recently it was reported that Gov Snyder quietly requested Michigan legislators to cool their pro-life agenda heels but publicly he has not issued any guarantees of veto to Michigan voters.

Please call and write and fax the Governor’s office and tell him “it is time for him to make a public statement about where he will stand on these bills.” 

Also, call your media outlets and ask them to press Governor Snyder of Michigan for a statement about where he will stand on these bills!

Liberty Chooses Her Own Destiny

The Spittin’ Sister from Michigan speaks: On the original posting of this note on our Spittin Out the Pitts facebook page above a reader asked what was I trying to say with this picture. The painting is called Liberty Leading the People by Eugene Delacroix painted in 1830, exhibited in the Salon in 1831 and hangs permanently in the Louvre. You can find more about the painting’s history here.

Yes, it is revolutionary art (French), and the meaning for me lies in the fact that many cultures depict liberty as a woman. In America, we have the Statue of Liberty as a beacon of hope and welcome and she still stands as so, for now. 

Liberty is a concept lost to the ladies when religious and conservative forces are calling the shots to control our bodies. This message above is imploring women to recognize that their individual freedoms are at stake and that we must be leaders to uphold standards of freedom to choose our own destinies. 

Harlots in the Kitchen l Sinful & Saucy Kahlua Chocolate Cupcakes

The Spittin’ Sister in Philadelphia is on a mission, a slightly paranoid pursuit about the derivation of devil’s food cake. Are such saucy cakes forbidden in the kitchens of good Christian women? It wouldn’t surprise me. 

Digging for the truth about Joe Pitts and his intentions for the body parts of American women, I returned to a really upsetting piece that I wrote in 2011: ‘Here This, Rick Perry, If Oprah Is A Harlot, I Am A Harlot, Too.’ 

I was stopped dead in my tracks with International House of Prayer evangelist Mike Bickle calling Oprah the forerunner of the Antichrist. This is how feminists are demonized in America. Suddenly being called a slut by Rush Limbaugh, isn’t so bad. Better a slut than the anti-Christ. 

In fact, new research says that feminists are not only superb moms, but they readily embrace helicopter parenting. To suggest that feminists hate kids is just more dirty, rotten right wing lies. 

The Spittin’ Sisters shared Sinful & Saucy Kahlua Chocolate cupcakes on the Fourth of July. The Spittin’ Sister from Michigan swears they are divine and truly sublime.

Gertrude Stein & Alice B. Toklas l Science, God and Alice’s Chicken 

The Spittin’ Sister in Philadelphia writes: Gertrude Stein and Alice Tolkas proved to be a power-duo in Paris during the early 20th century. 

http://beinecke.library.yale.edu/digitallibrary/stein.html

True trailblazers for women, Gertrude and Alice remind us of the importance of the mind, intellectual thought, and creative problem solving for life’s challenges. Not only did Gertrude and Alice believe in the power of art; they embraced science. 

The rejection of science is a cornerstone of thought among the Joe Pitts crowd. They suspend all judgement, discovery, and intellectual argument. Why? Intellect isn’t arrogance, and yet this is the very argument at the center of Joe Pitts’ life philosophy. 

To think is going against God! That’s what I call backing American discovery and innovation into a corner. 50 years ago Americans didn’t have to choose between God and science.

Gertrude and Alice would not approve!!! What’s marvelous about these ladies is that Alice could both think and cook well. Most women can without a struggle.

First published in 1954, ‘The Alice B. Toklas Cookbook’ was a great success. More critical thinking and Alice’s chicken recipe made with ruby port, orange juice and heavy cream in Spittin’ Sisters News.

Voter Engagement Remains High, If Down From 2008 | Joe Walsh Thinks Tammy Walsh Not a True Hero

French Roast News

Anne is reading …

Five months before Election Day, voter engagement generally equals or surpasses levels from the four presidential campaigns prior to 2008 — a watershed year, reports Pew Research. Much is made of the fact that voter interest has declined since the Obama-McCain race four years ago. The fact that with the exception of 2008, voter interest surpasses all campaign since 1992 promises a significant turnout.

2012 Senate Races

Not only is the presidential election a close race, but top Senate races are also tightening up writes Politico.

A surprise race is North Dakota North Dakota where Democrat Heidi Heitkamp is running an “artful campaign”. In Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Scott Brown are in a dead heat.

Joe Walsh and Tammy Duckworth (Image via AP)Salon calls Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh America’s most offensive Congressman. Think Progress has the video in which Walsh, who is $100,000 behind in child support to his ex-wife and failed to show up in court, says that his opponent Tammy Duckworth is such a showoff when she enters a room in a wheelchair.

Spittin’ Out the Pitts

Spittin’ Out The Pitts on Facebook

The Spittin’ Sisters shared a recipe for Watermelon Frosty in honor of tomorrow being Independence day in America. The Sisters devoted this watermelon, banana and touch of cayenne pepper drink to the women of Lancaster’s District 16, and the men who love them.

It’s soon Fourth of July in America, and let’s all make a watermelon frosty that’s dedicated to freedom from Joe Pitts and his horrific war on women’s bodies. Tomorrow, we demand personhood for American women.

 The vast majority of Americans push back on personhood amendments, but that doesn’t stop Rep Joe Pitts from pushing the argument that fertilized eggs should be equal Constitutional rights to a grown woman with children, an adoring husband and career. The two are equal in his political playbook.

Personhood Attempt Fails in Ohio

ABC News reports that the attempt to put a perhood amendment on the ballot in Ohio this November has failed. The supporters of personhood collected only about 30,000 of the roughly 385,000 required to put personhood on the ballot.

Supporters fell short of the required number of signatures to qualify for the November ballots in Nevada and California. And in Oklahoma, the state’s highest court halted an amendment effort there to grant personhood rights to human embryos, saying the measure was unconstitutional.

Voters rejected personhood in Mississipi last November, although Republican lawmakers tried to introduce it again as a state law in 2012. Note that a federal judged moved yesterday to block Mississippi’s sole abortion clinic.
