Phillies Were Careful Not To Use Word Fired Regarding Manuel - RealGM Wiretap
Ruben Amaro Tom Jackson Broncos Jersey , Jr. fought back tears as the Philadelphia Phillies announced that Charlie Manuel had been dismissed on Friday.


The Phillies were careful not to use the word "fired" to describe the move from Manuel to interim manager Ryne Sandberg. Their press release was titled: "Phillies Announce Managerial Change."


However, Manuel announced during the press conference that: "I never quit nothin'. And I didn't resign."


The Phillies have struggled mightily as of late and Manuel wasn't going to return for the 2014 season. Manuel agreed to participate in the press conference announcing the move.


Manuel has been considered a hero in Philadelphia since leading the team to a World Series title in 2008.

Refugee v. Evacuee: Hurricane Disaster Languaging Matters Language is a behavior potentially under our control, and a powerful loop: its how we act upon the world and how the world acts upon us. Something must be very powerful not to have a name, and we must be very unpowerful not to know it, or not to be able to use it. Who gets to say it Steve Atwater Broncos Jersey , i.e., who gets to "know" it, is dictated by the powers that be. It's a great moment in a baby's life when he learns the word "no." Instead of pushing the thing away, averting his eyes, screaming, crying, or hitting, he can utter the word "NO" and -- at least some of the time -- the thing of offense will go away. That's power.The power of language.And when we can name that our anger is coming from fear (instead of just a mish mash or feelings or pounding temples), then we can deal with it and move forward, empowered. Anger John Elway Broncos Jersey , as they say, is a good way of knowing what we want, though not a good way of getting it. LANGUAGE AND HURRICANE KATRINA Consider how you and those around you are talking about the events around Hurricane Katrina. What happened is this: Hurricane Katrina is the third most intense hurricane to make landfall in the US. Early in the morning of August 29. 2005, the eyewalls of Katrina grazed by New Orleans Peyton Manning Jersey , Louisiana and made landfall in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. Those are the facts. The rest, as with the reporting of any event, can be, and usually is interpreted, reported, elaborated upon, commented upon, embellished, reported falsely Tom Jackson Jersey , lied about, exaggerated, down-played, assigned emotional meaning, given value judgments, and so forth. It can also be sed?for various purposes, depending upon the one reporting for sympathy, for outrage, for money, to incite action Terrell Davis Jersey , to disparage, for support, to criticize and blame, and any number of other purposes.The words we use in reporting about the hurricane personally, as a nation, and as a world, will be influential. Who dictates this language? The media? The leaders? You and I? The words used will shape your thinking, so pay attention and accept or reject it, but recognize your ability to choose and be mindful or both what you take in, and what you put out.According to the Global Language Monitor ( http:www.languagemonitor ) Steve Atwater Jersey , a fascinating website, here's the way it's being played in global reporting, in order of wordterm usage:Disaster is being used most often. Then Biblical. (The London Times reported " ...a town of 6,800 where corpses lie amid a scene of Biblical devastation".) Next is global warming. (Der Spiegel reported: "...German Environmental Minister Jrgen Trittin remains stolid in his assertion that Hurricane Katrina is linked to global warming and America's refusal to reduce emissions.") Next, in this order, are Hiroshimanuclear destruction, catastrophe, holocaust, apocalypse, and end of the world. What do you think about these different terms? What are the connotations? What emotional overtones do they have John Elway Jersey , i.e., how do you react to them? How do they make you feel? What is actual and what is escriptive As you sort through the data, are you discriminating the fact from the embellishment and commentary? Are you considering the possible biases of those reporting?Are the survivors of the hurricane evacuees, refugees, or survivors of the hurricane? What difference does it make which term you use? Evaluate your emotional reaction to each. Various emotionally loaded terms are being used in order to manipulate your reactions. Why not take some time today to apply this thinkfeel paradigm today as you speak and listen to those around you. Is your word choice emotionally loaded?
