Updates for Coach Says, Vol. 1, issue ii

Adobe Reader 9.4.0 changed the way Reader asks the user's (your) permission to play audio files:
  1. You must first click the speaker icon's image of its own sound wave
    Sound wave for speaker icon.
    (not on the image of the speaker itself) in an attempt to get one of my audio clips to play.
    Then, a yellow bar appears across the screen with the cautionary
    "Some features have been disabled to avoid potential security risks. Only enable these features if you trust this document."

    On the right side of this bar is a drop down menu called "Options": Click on "Options," then select either option to enable audio clips to play.

  2. Unfortunately, if you have already allowed Full Screen Mode because Reader asks you to allow Full Screen Mode when you first open the Coach Says, Vol. 1, issue ii document, when you later click the speaker's icon of its own sound wave to play an audio clip, this yellow bar does not appear.
    • So, you must click your computer's Escape key to return to Non-Full Screen Mode, click the speaker's own sound wave icon again, and then (and only then!) does that yellow bar appear.

    • Click that same drop down menu called "Options," select either option.
    • Then, click the speaker's image of its own sound wave again, and all the audio clips will function as expected.

  3. In this issue's editorial "Stand-Up Comic as Gunslinger," page 1-14,
    • I compare/contrast Richard Boone's character Paladin in the top-rated "Have Gun - Will Travel" (HGWT) TV adult Western (1957-1963)
    • with the character of a current top Keynote Speaker and that of a top Stand-Up Comic.

    This, to prove that the archetypical hero is both valid and necessary to our times and to these related three art forms.

    To illustrate the point, I cited selected episodes of HGWT.
    Luckily, when I released this issue of Coach Says on 8-12-09, most of these episodes were available to view online for free.

    About a year later, one of our readers, who had been watching these freebie episodes, alerted me that they are suddenly no longer available on CBS.com, IMDB.com and not even the $2/episode ones on Amazon.com
    Therefore, links to these web sites from Coach Says, Vol. 1, issue ii, did not work on pages 6, 7, and 11-13.

    Free as we speak, current through February 21, 2020, 10 pm:
    Youtube.com had some sliced up episodes; so, to avoid frustration, do make sure you find the complete 25 minutes episode before you start watching.
    Alert: video quality is a bit soft so DVD is much better for seeing sharp focus on Boone's face as it filled a TV screen circa 1957 to reveal telling details of expression, eye-twinkling, etc.

    HGWT Seasons 1-3 can still (hopefully) be rented on DVD, which is a much superior viewing experience, especially if watched on a TV (intended medium):
    1) Netflix (fee/month):
    http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Have_Gun_Will_Travel_Season_1/60036609?strackid=7a907f138a03b43e_0_srl&strkid=569385456_0_0&trkid=222336
    2) Block Busters (fee/movie):
    https://www.blockbusternow.com/?layout=full"

    Good news: I have now found new videos added on youtube.com for free viewing since November 2013 for all the full episodes of HGWT which I had cited.
    As this changes every year or so, I have stopped updating all the HGWT link for "Coach Says," Vol. 1, issue ii except on this supplemental page:
