  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    The Debate..

    The only debate between Michigan Gubernatorial contenders Rick Snyder and Virg Bernero was tonight.

    As soon as the debate is available for after event viewing, I would encourage you to find and view it. One thing that stood out to me is how "blinky" Virg Bernero is. (In particular, a 'tic' in his right eye) It made me do a quick search for things that it may represent.  I found this:

    How To Tell If Someone Is Lying

    • Try changing the topic and see how easily the liar will be ready to change the subject. His body and face will look relaxed.
    • If you think he is giving false answers to your questions, try asking him minute details. He will take unusual breaks as his brain will take time to imagine and construct a story with minute details.
    • Try asking minute details after a considerable time gap. Most of the times, the liar will have different answers. This happens because an imaginary story is difficult to remember.
    • A liar might even try to confuse the listener by adding unnecessary details and deviating from the main issue.
    • Ask the liar to look into your eyes all the time while talking to you. If you are a good observer, even a slightest change in his eye-movement that is connected with lying will be noticed. It will be useful to warn him to tell only the truth.
    • One of the easiest ways of catching a liar is to let him speak without asking him any questions. The more explanation you hear from him, the more possibility of him lying.

    Unfortunately, some of the symptoms require more time, and more 'rope' than what a debate format can offer..

    The particular quote that initially drew my attention?

    "Too Much of Eye Blinking: Lying has a stressful effect on the liar's body. If a person is lying, his eyes are strained resulting in too much of eye blinking."

    Folks, as you know, I have my misgivings, but I will tell you, the times I have met Rick Snyder in person, he looked me in the eye and didn't blink or look away.  I had his full attention for as long as I wanted to talk.  This is only ONE thing to pull away from the debate, and I do encourage you to look. The strobe must have been terrible for ol Virg.

    "We have a tremendously talented and skilled workforce. We're very productive in this state." - Michigan House Speaker (and Gubernatorial Candidate) Andy Dillon

    "Rescuing troubled companies and saving Michigan jobs." Sounds like a sure fire message you want to spread in a state mired in its own depression.

    As it turns out, it's easier said than done.
