Chaney and Jeanette S. Martin, an associate professor at the University of Mississippi business school, are the authors of Global Business Etiquette: A Guide to International Communication and Customs (Praeger Publishers). Some more Donts:
Don't do like the businesswoman from Texas who showed up at a conference in Antwerp in a bright-green jacket. (Black would have been more appropriate.) And don't do like the man who made the mistake of wearing a tan suit in the dark-suited company of his Tokyo associates. And definitely don't give a striped tie as a gift to an Englishman. It may just represent a British regiment other than his own!
Lessons learned: Mind your manners. Don't look dumb. According to Jeanette Martin, if you're doing business abroad and you have poor etiquette, "it doesn't matter how intelligent you are. You are going to be viewed as stupid."
The film depicts the effect of a terrorist nuclear attack on the U.S. It stars The Rock as, well, The Rock; Sarah Michelle Gellar as a porn star with a talk show; and last but not least, our own Justin Timberlake as a crazed Iraq War veteran selling a spiritual drug to people in Los Angeles.
If it all sounds a bit, um, goofy, take heart in the praise being aimed at JT. I think you will see Justin do extraordinary work, said Kelly, who called Timberlakes role the spiritual center of the film. Read more about it here.
Diaz, the article said, usually either snubs fans who ask for her autograph, or gives them lectures on how "stupid autographs are." Hmmm. Sounds like she needs a few lessons in graciousness from her Southern Gentleman.

And now we know why one reviewer kept referring to Hicks bluesy Memphis style, and why another reviewer jested on the eve of the visit by four Idol finalists to Graceland two weeks ago that Taylor Hicks will get to revisit the Memphis places where he and The King hung out when they both were kids in the 1940s. (That joke is based on the 29-year-old Hicks prematurely gray hair.)
At any rate: You da man, Taylor! You da band, Little Memphis! Break a leg. Or, better yet, Knock on Wood.
Clarification: Some Internet sites are reporting that the Memphis Blues Orchestra will be performing with Hicks on next week's Idol finale. That rumor is being denied by members of the band and was evidently based on video clips of Hicks gigging with the band on an Idol-sponsored visit home to Birmingham last week.
So if someone writes Wash Me on the back window of your vehicle, beware: It just might be a trap.
Yikes. Bombshells about Michael Jackson. The mind reels. Will Gest explain that whole glove thing, or reveal that Michael's nose is reeeeeally small due to 19 plastic surgeries? Or will he just confirm that Jacko is whacko?
The book will also expose secrets from the lives of Debbie Reynolds, Dionne Warwick, Esther Williams, and Smokey Robinson.
The literary world awaits. Write, David, write! For more, go here:
Last week, it was thought that Elliott Yamin, the untrained underdog with the magical natural voice, would last another week into the Top Two. (We think thats only fair. After all, Els the one who had his ticket bought for last summers American Idol audition in Memphis the one that was rained out by the afterwash of Katrina), so hes almost home folks. But the inside betting today is that the E-train probably got derailed last night when Yamin gave so-so performances on his three esoteric songs.
That leaves Californian Katharine McPhee, the looker, and Alabaman Taylor Hicks, the karaoke spastic, as probabilities to lung it out next week.
See you at the Barbecue Fest, Elliott.
