When you're cooking steaks and burgers on a grill about the worst thing you can do is press down on them with a spatula.

Mike Carruthers:
Can you love your child too much?

 

Dr. Laurence Steinberg:
I think a lot of parents believe that they can spoil a child by being too loving. Research studies indicate that you can't be too loving to a child. You can spoil a child with material possessions but you can't spoil a child with genuine affection.

Mike Carruthers:
What would you guess are the biggest image mistakes professional men make?

 

William Cane:
Well the 2 biggest mistakes that men make are they fail to polish their shoes and comb their hair. George Steinbrenner the former owner of the New York Yankees was very, very wealthy and successful but he always carried a comb and before he met anybody he stepped in front of a mirror and he made sure every hair was in place.
