Once Upon A Time... Story Telling, a new skill

Story Telling

Throughout history this has been a basic in all civilizations. Everybody loves stories. It was the way history, skills, knowledge and learning was first passed down from generation to generation I can’t claim it as a new skill, but you might. And it fits very well with Public Speaking!

Stories talk about people and how they handle events. You can take a skill, a bit of knowledge, an idea or anything and turn it into a story. Here’s one I told my children, years ago. It also has a serious point to it. When I tell stories to a group of children, I make it about them, making them heroes. I try to pick children who need encouragement.

The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
