Or possibly ever. Jeff Goldblum’s got that good good! On Monday (Sept. 2), the actor and jazz virtuoso danced to Normani’s “Motivation” while watching an LGBTQ parade in New Orleans, and fortuantely for humanity, an eyewitness captured it all on film.Footage of the moment shows the star gamely waving his arm and swaying his hips to the former Fifth Harmony member’s breakout single from a rooftop. Rocking a boldly perfect mix of animal prints, Goldblum is seemingly oblivious to the crowd of starstruck gays cheering him on from below. The joyful (and instantly-viral) moment was captured during Southern Decadence, a wild six-day party put on every Labor Day Weekend by New Orleans’ gay and lesbian community which culminates in a parade through the city’s famed French Quarter.Check ou

The song is fun and instantly puts me in a good mood, but the music video is just — I really don't have the words to describe it except for amazing. (Please go watch it if you haven't done so already.)Taking my obsession one step further, The Fitness Marshall dropped a new dance workout to "Motivation," and I can't wait to try it. You're going to be moving nonstop so don't be surprised if your abs, arms, and legs are sore the next day. "This dance is as high energy as Normani's [official video]. It's challenging, fun, and will have you feeling so fierce while sweating like crazy," The Fitness Marshall told POPSUGAR. If you've been in need of motivation to get your body moving, check ou

'I Know Why You Voted for Trump' and Other Motivation Misperceptions – Harvard Business School Working Knowledge

Motivation
After Donald Trump won the US presidency in 2016, many Americans who hadn’t voted for him wondered: What exactly motivated so many other voters to choose him? It was a question right in the research wheelhouse of Harvard Business School Assistant Professor Kate Barasz, a marketing expert who studies consumer decision-making, with a particular interest in how we make sense of other people’s choices. Just five days after the election, Barasz conducted an online survey that asked Trump voters what spurred them to vote for the president. The answer was not what people on the other end of the political spectrum assumed, according to a July article in Cognition, “I Know Why You Voted for Trump: (Over)inferring Motives Based on Choice.” In the survey of about 300 voters, Trump voters were a

The Wine Business Institute at Sonoma State University recently joined forces with Pierre Lincoln’s Somm Digital, a specialist digital marketing consulting agency located in Napa, to survey wineries about their digital marketing experiences. The team surveyed 257 wineries across the nation, and the results indicated that while wine businesses understand the need for effective digital marketing strategies, many operations lack the knowledge and advertising budget needed to compete.  The research revealed many areas needing improvement in the U.S. wine industry, but thanks to the efforts of this project and the school’s wine business programs, students at the university will be well-positioned to take advantage of these opportunities.Somm Digital’s Founder, Pierre Lincoln, said, “we

The challenge of finding quality healthcare can also take a mental toll on sex workers. “In most places, a lot of forms of work aren’t legal, and a lot of doctors don’t have training for patients who are in this industry,” Calida says. “It might be difficult to find a therapist, a counselor, or a medical professional who’s going to treat you seriously and respectfully.” For Renee Wilson (working name), that means keeping a close eye on her mental health after a challenging day at work. For instance, she employs regular verbal affirmations and reads self-help books, including Thriving in Sex Work by Lola Davina. “There is a lot of unreciprocated emotional labor as a stripper on our end,” Wilson says. “Almost every night, we have to play therapist, mother, mistress, friend — so I make it
