Praise vs bacon…

Your dog will probably work harder to  receive praise  from you than he will for treats.   Researchers at Emory University have actually studied this,  and I have found it to be true based on experience with my own dogs,  all of whom also very much enjoyed getting treats.

The interesting things is that most mammals have much the same reactions and motivations.

…your poll displeases you,  just  add another  bunch of Democrats so that Hillary then leads…

Monmouth University had a decent reputation for polling until they got caught cooking these books.

In a similar vein,  big media seeks to downplay Trump’s rallies.  In this instance,  it’s described as small,  despite the venue  being filled  to capacity.   If not actually dead yet,  journalism is certainly on the critical list.
