California attorney general and Democratic candidate for governor Jerry Brown gestures as he speaks during a news conference with Asian Pacific Islander leaders on October 18, 2010 in San Francisco, California. With just over two weeks to go until election day, Jerry Brown received endorsements by California Asian Pacific Islander leaders.
Jerry Brown shows us aggressiveness by pointing directly at another, what makes it more emotional is the lines he is showing in his forehead. California attorney general should not be so emotional- we like to think of the highest representative of the law in California would be more intellectual than emotional.◦

It has been three weeks since an American tourist was reportedly shot while riding a Jet Ski on a cross-border lake between Texas and Mexico.
While I first heard about this case on the news while traveling, it was not until today I was able to see an interview with the wife.
At 35 seconds in the video, Anderson asks how she is doing. Notice the shrug when she says she just wants her husband back. Shrug is indecisiveness; so she is not sure if she wants her husband back.
'Start figuring out what I am going to do from here'- she wants to get on with her life, which is not a sign of grief; it is a sign that she is ready to move on from the murder of her husband, which is unusual so soon after his death.
At 2:00 Tiffany says, "..it's over... and they got what I believe they need..." This is very troubling, it is not over until they have an arrest; she supposedly saw her husband murdered and it should not be over until she gets justice. is When she is saying it is over, she means her interaction with the authorities which seems to be a recurring theme- she is ready to put this behind her.
At 2:05 Tiffany says, "...all we want is David..." - she is shaking her head no, and after she says she prays they pick up the search again she immediately purses her lips. Pursing the lips is a sign of not wanting to talk or is done sometimes after someone says something they wish they didn't. If she comes from a particularly religious family, to say something like "pray" would be subconciously troubling to her.
When she pleas for somebody to give her husband back, and honor him (interesting that honor is is used over and over again- this is a sign that she has rehearsed way the way she refers to her husband). When she says DNA, it is interesting because for someone to be killed on the lake on a jet ski, what DNA would be available?!?! This could show premeditation, especially when combined with the confusing jurisdiction of this occurring on or near the border- what are the odds of someone being killed in these circumstances. The emotion I see here is misplaced, it should begin when she talks about honoring him- that would be the time she would be grieving and be thinking about him- the emotion starts and ends when she begins and ends speaking- emotion should ebb and flow (except when the emotion is highly intensive).
I'm always on guard when the witness points the finger at a group of people that preys on stereotypes; if I would have seen this happen I would be able to describe the details of the perp, not paint them with a wide stereotypical brush.
I haven't seen such an obvious difference between body language and emotion and what we would expect given the circumstances.◦

Quentin Tarantino's newest film, Inglorious Bastards, stars Brad Pitt.
I finally got around to watching the entire movie, it was good maybe great. There is a scene in a basement bar where a SS agent determines that the others are really spies by the way one of them orders drinks.

Indian actors Shah Rukh Khan (L) and Priyanka Chopra (C) and German actor Florian Lukas pose during a photocall to promote their movie Don-2 in Berlin, October 22, 2010.
Who is showing ownership? Who has made the woman laugh? Likely at someones expense... who is confrontational? The woman is doing a couple of things by putting her finger in front of her mouth- she is covering her mouth like she is embarrassed because she is laughing and is subconsciously showing the gesture to be quiet. She is also gazing away from the two others. There is almost too much going on here.
The second picture is a telling as the first...

Jurgen Melzer of Austria reacts during his match against Rafael Nadal of Spain at the Shanghai Masters tennis tournament October 14, 2010. Melzer won the match.
This is one of the better pictures in sports. Subtle surprise shown with his dropping of his jaw and mouth open; Anti gravity reaction by lifting his arms up; and pacifying by placing his racket on his head. Whenever I see a picture with this much going on, it is definitely a pic worth a thousand words.◦

Writer Ken Auletta speaks at the 2010 New Yorker Festival at SVA Theatre 2 on October 2, 2010 in New York City.
If we are touching around the ear while we are speaking it could mean we do not like what we are saying- or what we have to say.
If we are listening, it means we do not like what is being said.
The science about it is the ear (and nose) it is very thin, and when we are bothered, the nerve ending can become exited and subconsciously we often reach for the ear so the nerve ending do not bother us- it is a pacifying touch.◦
