New Pandemic-Related Disorder: ‘Zoom Fatigue’by Shifra on June 8, 2020
Looks like working from home turns out to be not so ‘perfect’ after all. Via WSJ. ….The affliction that’s come to be known as “Zoom fatigue” is way more than a byproduct of too many meetings. Social scientists say it’s the result of the sudden mass adoption of technology that’s disrupting the normal, instinctual and finely-tuned way of communicating that developed to help humans survive. “We’ve evolved to get meaning out of a flick of the eye. Our species has survived because we can produce those signals in a way that’s meaningful,” says Jeremy Bailenson, professor and director of Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab. “Zoom smothers you with cues, and they aren’t synchronous. It takes a physiological toll.” Before...
Hope Hicks, Mercedes Schlapp Round Out New White House Press Shopby Tammy on September 13, 2017
As you’ve heard me note on many occasions, the White House press operation is arguably the most important team for the president and our agenda.

Trump Reportedly Considering Fox’s Kimberly Guilfoyle As Press Secretaryby Tammy on May 15, 2017
I don’t have inside knowledge about this, but I know original news reports at the start of the transition was that she would be involved at the White House in Communications. We know that never happened, but this would be a good step getting the Trump administration’s communications department out of incompetent swamp hands. Bringing Kim on in any role would also indicate President Trump is aware of where theproblem is and wants to change it. There are lots of reports that he wants to do a great deal of house cleaning. I’d say that’s unlikely, but an addition or two, or a single change up, just might happen. I think it MUST happen. So good luck to Kim, I...

Video) Krauthammer: Trump’s Russia Reference Set a Trap for Clintonby Tammy on July 28, 2016
He's right. Underestimating Trump is a mistake. The GOP found out, and now the Democrats will find out. In January 2017, the rest of the world will find out. Even insufferable lefty Piers Morgan gets it...
