The Sullivan Nod
a sales technique most frequently used by bartenders and waiters in order to get the customer to pick a specific item on the menu. To perform this technique, they nod their head slightly ( around 10-15 degrees ) when they mention the specific item. This subtle gesture subconsciously reinforces their recommendation to the customer. Although I can’t find any statistical study to backup this assumption, customers are said to be 60-70% more likely to choose a specific item when the Sullivan Nod is used. However, what I’m really interested in is how these individuals use a subtle form of communication to provoke a ...

A Sullivan nod is executed by nodding slightly, by approximately 10–15 degrees, when the item it is hoped the customer will choose is reached.

Studies have concluded that 60–70% of the time, a Sullivan nod will result in the ... Read More

in Afghanistan. To many, it looks like our one "success" story is going to hell in a handbasket just as our confirmed disaster in Iraq gets even worse with news of the Haditha massacre. Andrew Sullivan had a pessimistic post of this flavor yesterday. Unfortunately, this impression is too kind by half. There has undeniably been more violence in Afghanistan, but the recent Kabul riots made headlines precisely because they happened in Kabul , where the television cameras and reporters are. One of the downsides of the highly centralized federal government we have helped set up in Kabul is that it has an extremely limited ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Rybak had a slight edge over House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher, with the party's nine other candidates languishing in the single digits of support from caucusgoers. Underscoring the volatility of the race: "Uncommitted" ranked third in the voting. Seifert, the former House Minority Leader from Marshall, had his victory certified early Wednesday by GOP ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

PITTSFORD — Christina Kim is rarely lacking for attention, but she admits she hasn't been deluged with inquiries about her golf game the last few months.

I'm not a professional philosopher, but I act like one at the local pub. So my opinion my not count for much. Heck, it may not even be accurate. But what the hey! We're talking about philosophy here and on that subject everyone is entitled to a dogma!

When it comes to the creation and existence of the universe there are two possibilities: a personal versus an impersonal beginning. An accidental big bang would obviously be an example of an impersonal beginning. But so is a pantheistic beginning. ...
