Public hangings are teaching moments. Every company has to do it. A teaching moment is worth a thousand CEO speeches. CEOs can talk and blab each day about culture, but the employees all know who the jerks are. They could name the jerks for you. It’s just cultural. People just don’t want to do it.

On Twitter, if you want to quote someone else, you say, ‘RT, re-tweet, that person’s name, and then what they said before.’ And it’s a way of essentially saying, ‘I’m not saying this, but my friend said this and I thought this was interesting.’
My recommendation is to try and do the best you can in go-karting to be spotted by a big name like Red Bull or Ferrari. And like that you have a chance. If not, nowadays it’s very difficult. It’s always been, but these days, even more.

I don’t think it’s anything you ever get used to… for many years, I could never sort of put my name in the same sort of category as the word ‘famous’ or anything like that. And I just found it very uncomfortable… if you get used to it, then something must be wrong.
I had this one audition – I won’t say the casting director’s name, but she was on the phone the whole time I sang. I was literally doing my audition, and she was on the phone. So I guess whatever it is she was ordering for lunch was more important than the high C’s I was belting out.

Johnny Nitro was an homage to Eric Bischoff, who, I was his apprentice at the time. I liked that name. Basically, Vince McMahon thought that ‘Nitro’ reminded him of WCW, and when I became the ECW Champion, like, he had a couple times mentioned to me, ‘If you’re going to be a real star, you need a real name.’
‘A Death in the Gunj’ is set in 1979 and we had to mute a joke that referred to Indira Gandhi. The censors also wouldn’t allow the tortoise that some of the characters talk about to be called Kalidas because it’s the name of a respectedpoet.
For those of you who aren’t aware I am Jewish, the name might have given it away, and there were no other Jewish kids on my football team, so it was an adjustment for me because the kids didn’t exactly love the fact that there was a Jewish kid taking their spot.

I still have a home in Sarajevo, and there is a room where the walls are covered with football jerseys. One is a Milanshirt with Shevchenko’s name and number on the back.

There are a number of World War II historians I admire: Cornelius Ryan, Mark Stoler, Antony Beevor, to name a few. As for generals, there are those I admire as combat leaders and others I admire because they’re great fun to write about.

Do I want someone to get more hits than me? No. Do I want someone to hit more home runs than me? No. Do I want someone to have more RBI than me? No. I get a kick out of seeing the all-time leaders and my name’s on top of every one, with the exception of strikeouts. I get a kick out of that.
A man’s natural rights are his own, against the whole world; and any infringement of them is equally a crime, whether committed by one man, or by millions; whether committed by one man, calling himself a robber, (or by any other name indicating his true character,) or by millions, calling themselves a government.
I guess my name was gonna be Michael Vernon Wells, and I came out, and my dad saw my nose. He always says that my nose right now is the same size as it was when I was born. So he had to name me Vernon. He’s got a big schnozz on him, too.

The people who believe themselves to be on the left, and who defend the agents of Islam in the name of tolerance and culture, are being rightwing. Not just rightwing. Extreme rightwing. I don’t understand how you can be so upset about the Christian right and just ignore the Islamic right. I’m talking about equality.
The last name is pronounced Jill-en-hall. It’s spelled with two l’s, two a’s. We have a song in my family; G-Y-Double L – EN – HAAL spells Gyllenhaal. It’s a Swedish name. It’s a family heirloom set to music.
My name is actually Snoh, but there’s a rapper with that name already out there, so I was asked to add something to it. I didn’t really want to do it at first, but then I thought of Aalegra. It has a connection to music and means ‘joy‘ in Italian.

I arranged ‘DT Suga,’ which I previously used in lyrics, backwards. ‘DT’ is D Town and refers to my hometown. I like the meaning, and it sounds cool when I say it, so I think I’ll continue using this name when I work externally. I also like how the mixtape came out in August.
I don’t remember Bill Walsh being old. I remember young Bill Walsh. He wasn’t gray-haired, and neither was I when we first met. His legacy will live on. Bill Walsh’s name and his accomplishments will be remembered and revered so long as the great game of football is played.
In America, people really struggle with my name, so I don’t have a nickname as such. I’ve had Sharlito, Sheldon, Charldo, really interesting variations on the name. Some of them can get it, but many can’t.

My dad’s name is Vernon and my mom liked the initials, V. V. My sisters and I got named Victoria, Valerie and Vincent so we’d be V. V.’s, too. But, then when you start getting pets‘ names that start with a ‘v,’ it’s a little embarrassing.

You have to be an extremist to believe that you’re gonna be the president of the United States and your name is Barack Hussein Obama!

We thought we’d name the magazine for the number of bridgeswithinEdmonton‘s city limits. We thought this number was 18. Much later, we learned that the number is actually 21. But we didn’t like the sound of that so much.

Feminism is not dead, by no means. It has evolved. If you don’t like the term, change it, for Goddess’ sake. Call it Aphrodite, or Venus, or bimbo, or whatever you want; the name doesn’t matter, as long as we understand what it is about, and we support it.
Every time when they would call my name I kept hearing ‘New York Knicks‘ instead of ‘Seattle SuperSonics.’

A lot of times when I ran, to be honest, I didn’t know where I was in the race. So I always was looking up at the scoreboard to say, ‘Just call my name to see where I am,’ because I tried to have such tunnel vision not to distract myself.
I loathe my name because it is mine and also because it is not mine; it is at once too intimate and seems to have no connection with me. Perhaps because the name is quite common, it never seems to fit me, or fit me alone. Nevertheless, when I see the name, I always feel a peculiar sense of shame.
You name it, we had it. It won’t happen again. You’re not going to duplicate this show.

I never have really become accustomed to the ‘John.’ Nobody ever really calls me John… I’ve always been Duke or Marion or John Wayne. It’s a name that goes well together, and it’s like one word – John Wayne.
My real name is Joseph Herbert. My dad is white; my mom’s Asian, Filipino. And when I started stand-up 22 years ago, I used to go up as Joseph Herbert, and I would just have to defend my name. Every time I went onstage, it was so annoying. People would heckle.

Just do some kind of workout. Doesn’t matter if it’s going for a walk around the block, going for a jog, doing some calisthenics, liftingweights, going to a pool and swimming – you name it. But do something that gets your blood flowing and gets your mind in the game.
When we were getting married the Hindu way in Arrah, we had an old guest who asked my wife what her ‘good name’ was. I think she’d heard that I had married a Muslim. When my wife said, ‘Mona Ahmed Ali,’ the lady looked at me and exclaimed, ‘Oh, so you’ve married a terrorist.’

My real name is Bob Davis, but for some reason, I got the name Jasper while playing football at the local rec when I was nine years old, and it just stuck. Years later, when someone asked ‘Jasper who?’ I just said ‘Carrott’ – but I have no idea why I came out with that particular word.

E. G. Marshall

When Clint Eastwood walks into a room, you may not know his name. But you know who he is.
We name time when we say: every thing has its time. This means: everything which actually is, every being comes and goes at the right time and remains for a time during the time allotted to it. Every thing has its time.
Obviously, having my dad’s last name, I think that’s more the chip on my shoulder because it has been a mixedblessing. I always will have the Flair stigma, and I think that’s where I deserve to be there or this, or I’m not just his daughter. I think that’s the chip on my shoulder.
Imagine an eye unruled by man-made laws of perspective, an eye unprejudiced by compositional logic, an eye which does not respond to the name of everything but which must know each object encountered in life through an adventure of perception.

I’ll fight you, and I’ll have respect at the end. If you win, I have respect; if I win, I expect respect, Ray Mercer, man, I don’t want to mention this guy’s name anymore. He gets no respect from me. He was not professional, and he showed poor sportsmanship.
Everyone who is critical of Israeli policy is deluged by crazed messages intended to flood their email system or, more insidiously, passwords are accessed and messages sent out under their name! I’m sure it’s illegal. It’s also an effort to underminefree speech.

I was a bully in fifth and sixth grade. I wasn’t one of the bullies – I wasn’t strong or dominant enough to be one of the kids who bullied everyone in equal measure. I was a bully, in that I bullied a kid, whose name I won’t mention here. My bullying was selective and personal.
Most of my life, I feel I have been Unicycling at the Edge of the Abyss! If fact, this will be the name of my book if I ever write one, or a one man stand uproutine. I have used it as the name of a collection of my musical compositions written during the ’90s. It fits the scaryjourney I feel I’ve been on.

One person may need (or want) more leisure, another more work; one more adventure, another more security, and so on. It is this diversity that makes a country, indeed a state, a city, a church, or a family, healthy. ‘One-size-fits-all,’ and that size determined by the State has a name, and that name is ‘slavery.’
Under my real name, Pepe Sosa, I recorded ‘El Mundo’ by Jimmy Fontana and ‘Ma Vie’ by Alain Barrier.
My daughter’s name is Neesyn Dacey but everyone calls her Dacey. Her mom chose Neesyn and I chose Dacey after she was born. The mother is a good friend of mine who I was seeing a while ago. We are no longer together.
I grew up a Washington Redskins fan, right? I’ve always wanted to play for the team as a kid. I always had dreams and aspirations to play for that team. So, for them to change the name, it really hurt. It hurt deep downinside.
Trump divides his time between working some kind of ‘King Ralph‘ angle, and claiming that he’s going to make the U.S. great again by using his business experience. We can only assume that means repeatedly declaring it bankrupt, then changing its name so he can just shake off all the debt.
I grew up on Bach and Beethoven, and now I’m listening to more modern composers who I can’t even name. But since I’m constantly doing music, it’s difficult to have that quality time to listen to music and do classical stuff.
How Jamie Tartt came to be Jamie Tartt was that he was originally Dani Rojas – but not as we know him now because Cristo Fernandez is Dani Rojas. They saw Cristo Fernandez and went, okay, we’re going to make a character and we’ll find a name for him.
I made records for 20 years, I lived off it. But people would say I made so many mistakes, I did so many things you’re not supposed to do. I had a band name nobody could say. I didn’t play live. I never practiced, I never got better at my instrument.
I worked with Tyler before on ‘Daddy’s Little Girls‘. He couldn’t be smarter or more laid back and cool. He’s always throwing out lines and is funny as hell. And he was shining his light on ‘Peeples’, too, lending his name to showcase Tina as a first-time director, and me as a first-time lead.
The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God – if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That’s what I think.
