Puppet chimp, lol, that wasn't meant to be racist but I can see why it may have been taken that way.  Sorry.

Very much a puppet, chimp was used in place of talentless imbecile that lacks the skill set to run a baskin Robbins, much less the most powerful country on earth.

Not the place though.
So, you used an unnecessary term to call a man an animal, an act which has its roots in historically bigoted hate-speech, and used it to describe the president?  And you didn't intend for it to be racist? 

I'd have to guess that people anywhere wouldn't see it as an unintentional gaff for anyone who grew up in this country and is over the age of 10. 

I've never used it as a racist term, I use it when talking about idiots.  Based on this discussion, I realize the error in that and will stop using it like that. 

I haven't a racist bone in my body.  O's issues have nothing to do with his color.  I'd vote for Dr. Carson over anyone currenty being discussed as a GOP nominee. 

The demographic makeup of attendees at my wedding would be the best proof...  It was a true melting pot smile

I get it though, I've not heard chimp used as a racist term before, but I realize it is and will stop using it.  That was an unfortunate mistake, going forward it will be replaced with idiot or imbecile which in some way seems to tame.

I've coached the high school speech and debate team for 20 years and practicing movement is a big part of platform speaking.

If you're trying to engage the audience in a less-formal, more personal way, then you definitely want to move away from the podium.  The podium represents a barrier between you and the audience and you step around the podium to remove that barrier.

Movement is a great idea as long as it has some purpose.  You have to be careful because your nerves can take over and turn the movement into nervous pacing, which is distracting to the audience. Shifting weight from foot to foot and swaying are distractions as well.

To prevent the movement from just looking like you're nervous, try and move naturally and with purpose.  For example, if you start your presentation behind the podium, move around the side or front of the podium during your opening/introductory comments. As you transition to your first point, move to a different area of the audience. Talk from there until you transition to your next idea, then move again. Just make sure you talk while you move and that you look natural as you walk. 

Other ideas are to reinforce your points and message with movement.  Step towards the audience when you make a point that you want them to remember.  As you move to background information or something less interesting, it's ok to turn your hips and move away from them to reset your position. As others have said, don't turn your back, but showing the audience your profile while you move to another area is fine.  You may have to compensate by raising your voice while you move.

There's such power in becoming an effective public speaker. Kudos to you for doing it.

They already have the actress, Gal Gadot.

Yep, and man is she hot, better suited than Olivia Munn too.

Officially cancelled now. 

Quote from: Pete Hines
“It was game we believed in, but we never felt that it got to where it needed to be – we never saw a path to success if we finished it,” he said.

“It wasn’t up to our quality standard and we decided to cancel it. It’s no longer in development. That wasn’t an easy decision, but it’s one that won’t surprise many folks given that we hadn’t been talking about it.

“Human Head Studios is no longer working on. It’s a franchise we still believe we can do something with — we just need to see what that something is.”
