    @debasish majumder Your poetry reflects the hardship of the everyday laborer - for whom brand has very different significance. You reach all the strands of the concept of brand and I like this line the most: Where ‘I’ is the product of majority’s ‘Eye’. Great, great poetry!

    #14 Dear @Ali Anani so long as it creates metaphorical muscle and a stronger mind, I look forward already to 2020 because then that is the time to look back to today - if learning is easy, it is not learning - if reflection does not burn deep it is only a cheap orgasm and the word RUACH still means something much greater than any of us realize and it is certainly not an "orgasm" :-)

    #9 Dear @Ali Anani my views on mass personal branding are not a stand, they are a cry of pain, a cry of deep anguished pain, the kind of anguish citizens of the world are feeling right now because they are powerless in watching that marketer called Trump dumbing down America. I don't mind this kind of anguish or this kind of existential limitation because the net result is through it I am the one will get stronger. I will triumph from this pain, I am developing a smarter mind, spirit and body for encountering this.

    When the very Presidency of the United States has been reduced to the level of a marketer, this is an excellent time for me to encounter this relationship with mass personal branding. Do you think that Nelson Mandela was weakened because he was put in jail. Once Mandela secured his baseline which was not to get killed by the Apartheid regime, then the years he spent in Ellis Island with the struggle, is what made him.

    Once Mandela was released from a dumb political system, his captors had already negotiated their own survival with him and once they knew that Mandela would protect them, he walked out of his jail - thanking the people who imprisoned him. I likewise will thank those that imprison me - this is not a stand, just as Mandela was not making a stand, he was allowing the struggle to work on him, he embraced the struggle and when he was free, he thanked the struggle. As he said in his own words, it was the struggle that made ordinary men, extraordinary. By 2020 the dumb President of Marketing will be out and a new era begins in America - and the next three years are not definitely not a stand, it is merely an imprisonment - the best kind for a developing mind.

    #7 DEra @CityVP 🐝 Manjit- I know of your stand and I respect it fully. This is very consistent with your writing here "Personal brand is about being ADJUSTED, but I am maladjusted". In complex systems, small adjustments might lead to even more maladjustment. So, in practical terms I find myself on the same boat.

    We are not obsessed with brand.

    We are not assuming it to be a part of life without understanding it.

    It could easily be labelled affinity too, but many of us may disagree because we want a better understanding.

    It again comes down to utility and the priority of the word in our lives. It certainly helped you introspection and produce great content.

    Beyond this, I am not sure how personal branding evolves but I am certain the word Brand will find many facets to its meaning.

    #19 Oh, by the way, @Candice 🐝 Galek. I watched Rosewood last night (PVR). Det. Villa was wearing one of your bikini tops. I recognized it from your feed. It's the black one with two curved cutaways over the breasts.

    That was a good choice for the show. It's sexy enough to pass for lingerie (She was getting dressed) but opaque enough to air on prime time.
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    11/02/2017 #21 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #19 #20 There is a much easier way.

    @Gary Sharpe and @Candice 🐝 Galek, you are both myTweePack members. Just ask for your feeds. You can get feeds for beBee, LinkedIn, Medium, and YouTube. Candice, you can even get a feed for your Inc articles.

    The complete list of possible feeds: personal/corporate blogs, beBee, LinkedIn, Medium, and YouTube. For contributor authors, we add The Good Men Project, Forbes, Entrepreneur, Huff Post, and Inc.

    These feeds aren't limited to 6hr polls, nor do you have to figure out how to build them. We did the heavy lifting.

    Just log in, click Request feeds from the profile page and you're done.

    Use the feeds as you will

    #19 Yes, thats what I did - pulled it into buffer and spat it out again to other social media. I don't think bebee appears on any (many?) of the sharing services yet? AddThis, etc? It's a bit of a shortcoming from one perspective. Perhaps it prevents oversharing on the other.
    Candice 🐝 Galek
    11/02/2017 #19 Candice 🐝 Galek
    #14 This is very interesting. So I could turn Linkedin posts into an RSS feed and then reshare it with buffer? What about Linkedin to Bebee?
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    10/02/2017 #18 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    The YouTube connection is now fully functional. To date, we can link personal/corporate blogs, LinkedIn articles, beBee articles, Medium articles, and YouTube Videos. For Contributing Authors to those publications, we can also link The Good Men Project, Entrepreneur, Huff Post, and Forbes. By the end of next week Inc. should be live.

    Connect any of the listed and simply writing a post will store it as a reusable tweet and schedule promotional tweets.

    Now I need to go add YouTube to the promotional video I made yesterday

    #14 #15 Thanks for the link, Gary. I had trouble finding it. And, yes, it is feed43.com Just a note to anyone using myTweetPack or the like.

    The free version of feed43.com limits polling to every 6 hours. We poll hourly. They WILL shut down the feed. The premium feed43 memberships are fine.

    #12 LOL, I said "I started regretting" not "I regretted." In actuality, I don't mind at al. It led to my seeing how time-consuming it was to dig around to find and store posts.

    #7 Yes, IFTTT has an annoying habit of breaking. So does Zappier. IFTTT recently did an unannounced change to how GPS works.

    I had an applet that would turn my Bluetooth on when I got about 500 yds from my house. Another would turn it off when I came back.

    I had another two applets that would do something similar with my thermostat. They would lower and raise the setting when I left or returned. A 5km range triggered them.

    Those applets worked flawlessly for two years. Then, they didn't.

    There I was sitting in my home office when my cell rang. "Hello? Hello? Hello?" No one there.

    It took me a while to figure out that my car's Bluetooth was still connected to my phone.

    I only figured it out when I noticed how chilly it was in the house. The thermostat was still at 50F. LOL

    Still, IFTTT can be used to mimic many myTweetPack functions, but no, not easily or seamlessly. Why bother when we are not only powerful but cheap too. As @Gary Sharpe said, "Cheap at three times the price."

    Our end goal is One-and-Done. We are probably the only site where dropping site visits is a GOOD metric.

    08/02/2017 #7 Candice 🐝 Galek
    Paul we have 4 or 5 rings of IFTTT setup but I find that they are constantly breaking down. And we have to rehire the guy that set them up every time as they are pretty complex the way they are structured!

    IMPORTANT UPDATE: LinkedIn in its infinite wisdom has cut the option to subscribe to an author's posts in its Oh So Wonderful (not) new interface. That means it's back to the drawing board for LinkedIn RSS feeds and promo updates.

    Existing feeds seem to work, but new ones don't

    Computer Hell Number FIVE-0It's happened. Again. Because I have Windows 10. A scareware attack. So instead of getting things accomplished this saturday, I'm scanning everything on my computer. And changing every password on it as well. Annoying...     It appears Windows 10...

    I don't follow blind links and scan every web site before visiting. I hate Microsoft, even though I have an email acount there (I will be changing that in the near future). I use Apple's OSX, but, I fear Apple is following in Microsoft's footsteps since Jobs kicked the bucket. In my opinion, their last good OS was "Mavericks", but, they won't let me go back, so I am stuck on crappy El Capitan.

    #6 Lisa,

    The scareware could still be there, waiting for a specific time, etc., really you need to search the registry, but I am glad that you are back up and running. If it happens again, remember to write down anything from the message, then Google, that will give you a name of the scareware and the web page may provide the name of the "scareware progname*.exe" file, then you would use that to search the registry, then you just delete it.

    #4 Thank you for all the great helps Milic. I scanned with spybot, caught a few things, then scanned with sophos. The 'scareware' isn't there anymore, so I believe I killed it. Something about Win 10 horrible version. Funny you mention Linux. I have a plethora of riches this christmas: my hubby got me a refurbished Dell latitude running Win 7, my favorite. I have a backup Dell, also a Latitude, exposed to a virus, but cured by IT. I'm going to put in a new HD, then start to try and learn Linux. Windows has just about pushed all the buttons I have re: each version being worse than the last!

    #1 Thanks Franci. It always stuns and amazes me when someone has a clever website, and either decides to "upgrade" it (Wix) or shudder...sells it to Microsoft. As we all know Microsoft hasn't a clue. I use LinkedIn as exibit A. Each day another 'little present'. I still post, because of the folks following. I do not doubt that it will not do well in the end unless they sell it back!

    I hope this helps.

    I use few programs that clean the windows, not my laptop or PC but fellow employees or people I work with that are not computer savvy. I do not use Microsoft Windows, as a default operating system. I use Apple Mac OS X, with Parallels virtual desktop, and have Linux and Microsoft Windows 8 installed at the moment. Due to the nature of what I do, I need access to the verity of operating systems.

    I converted few employees to Linux over the years, no issues six-plus years later, they are happy. Many have decided to go with Apple products, which I use, I do not recommend anything directly, it always your choice.

    I decided to put together few tools, that I use to clean victims laptops/PCs, here are few programs that work for me, you may use it, or you can search the web and find something better that would work for you.

    Malwarebytes (https://www.malwarebytes.com/)

    AVG (http://www.avg.com/us-en/homepage)

    Depending on the issue, you may need to run all these tools from safe mode. That will allow you or give you access to laptop/PC in standard mode. I use the tools above to get control over the PC, then I use "Regedit" to make sure no malicious programs are running upon boot up, and that is where it gets a bit tricky, you need to know where to look and what you can remove. Perhaps that will be an article for future, but this is just a quick guide for anyone to be able to save money and time.

    Now, this is a tool to use after you clean the laptop or PC from unwanted malware, scare-ware, ran-somewhere, use it to make sure there are no broken links in the registry and cleans the browser cache.

    CCleaner (https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download)

    And here are few guides to help anyone get started in the cleaning process, cleaning unwanted malware, scare-ware, ran-somewhere.

You home looks as though it's going to be beautiful, how long have you been building? How cool that a film crew visited to document (his antiques, I'm guessing?). More to come? Thanks for sharing, really enjoyed this.

    #15 Oh, thanks, @Claire 🐝 Cardwell Interestingly enough, I think South Africans would do quite well in Australia - our part of it at least. Based on the flora and fauna, there are many similarities between the Southern Highlands of NSW and parts of So. Africa.

    #14 #13 Yes, he is a pretty amazing fellow. Sort of a cross between Bear Grylls and Grizzly Adams, though you two may be too young to know who that is. Interestingly enough, Martin was raised in civilisation, except that he lived most of his young life working hard through harsh winters on the family farm. He's Irish, too, born and bred, so how he bears the Aussie sun Heaven only knows. Someday maybe I'll tell you about the rest of his skill set, but for now enough already, I'm sure I sound pretty fawning!

    R E S P E C T! Beautifully written. I've lived all my life in big cities (apart from 6 months in Connecticut) and always dreamed of perhaps spending my twilight years in the country, perhaps in Umbria, Oxfordshire, the Province, or Karuizawa, largely bug (and kangaroo) free countryside. Being a city wimp, I'd have to enrol in a Bear Grylls course to deal with the hazards of The Bush. Fortunately for you it appears you are married to Bear Grylls!

    #9 Ha, 'Le Shack' is what I call the little dwelling we're currently in, @Todd Jones. I couldn't find a decent picture of it when I was writing this. I call the house in the photos 'the Big House' and yes, Martin Curry has laid over 13,000 blocks himself, never mind scouting the position, surveying and digging the footings. Oh, and let's not forget the concreting. And in his spare time, he's become an authority on antique ceramics, started an auction house and an events management company. He's a rock star!

    "Le Shack"... funny! Did your husband build that house by himself? You mentioned that you have electricity, plumbing, and hot water. Once he finishes the roof, and puts in a door, the bugs and snakes will have to work a little harder to get in!

    Having lived for most of my life out of town in Australia, @Aleta Curry, I understood every reference and was saying "Oh yeah" to each of them, including the black snake inside. There's nothing like rural Australia, I wouldn't trade it. Based on your comment that the summers are sharp and short, I assumed you must live in the southern part of Australia. Here in Queensland the hot weather lasts from mid October to mid March (hot = above 30C, or for my American friends above 85F).

    Our antiques are unusual in that we source the rare and quirky from all over the world, sell with relatively low markets and tell the truth about condition. Customers think we're wonderful, competitors think we're suckers. I think people think more in terms of the uniqueness of our lifestyle, running antiques events in towns and cities from a little shack out in the middle of nowhere!

    Tests of the RSS/ATOM system are now complete and the system works like a charm.

    FYI: If you have a WordPress blog or a blog on a WordPress site, you already have a feed. Go to your blog page. Add /feed/ to the URL. If a screen-full of text pops up, that's your RSS link!

    myTweetPack can recognize RSS or ATOM feeds and act accordingly. It will pull out posts or product listings or whatever you have in there. It will then store Tweets for later use. It will also schedule promotional tweets. It will do that simply because you wrote a post.

    That also means initial set-up will simply involve telling myTweetPack.com that you have a feed. It will fetch your posts for you. Easier, right @Lynda Spiegel?

    It will also monitor the feed for new stuff. Anything new will be stored and promo tweets scheduled, automatically.

    NOTE: It will not schedule tweets on the first collection. That would be too much.

    NOTE 2: The RSS/ATOM system is not yet available to members. We still need to do "Hair and Make-Up" to make it pretty for you. We expect to have it available by week's end.

    Thanks go to @Candice 🐝 Galek for supplying the ATOM feeds for testing, and @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman for the RSS feeds.

    We still have free trials available at http://myTweetPack.com

    Just click on request an RSS link on your profile page. Ths isn't something you can self-serve. We'll do it for you.

    Some people have already asked for both LinkedIn and beBee links. If you do that tell us which should auto-tweet, otherwise you will have duplicate tweets pointing to different platforms.

    Might be a good way to settle the beBee vs LinkedIn thing though

    At the risk of being offensive, Candice is a HWAHOHS. (Hottie With A Head On Her Shoulders). She's a lot more than just a pretty face. I wonder how many people have underestimated her because of her looks? As the Father of another beautiful woman, that pisses me off.

    Our society tends to see beautiful women as strictly decorative. Yet, it was Heddy Lamarre who figured out frequency hopping. She may have won WW2 with that. At the very least she opened the Atlantic shipping lanes. Without her invention, there could have been no D-Day.

    Let's not even mention all the technologies that were built on its back.

    Since women have only been considered equal for about 50 years, I shudder to think what ideas, inventions, and concepts we missed out on.

    As Julie says "Every son, brother, father, or loving husband made it a mission to eliminate violence against women. These same men could be the best advocates and greatest allies in the struggle to keep their mothers, sisters, daughters and wives safe on earth. It should begin in every family for the change to happen. Well said Julie Hickman

My heart ached watching the video and the way the criminals spoke of rape. May her soul R.I.P. If ask me about the politicians it only makes me squirm. Can a country run without such people.

    Thank you @Sushmita Thakare Jain for talking the hearts of many women in India. Your voice is my voice and together the sound can be thundering. When ever a women is disrespected in India there comes a feeling of powerless in me as a women. What could I have done if had to be there ? Even I had no self defense lessons at the time in 2012 when Jyothi lost her light to the darkness that enveloped her. It could have been me ! I was in Delhi a couple of months just before this incident happened.
    My sisters and me we are 3 girls and my mother struggled to bring us up but she taught us to be bold .She always said I wish I had a son. Which of course has changed as I showed her it doesn't have to only be a man, to look after the family , a women like me can also do it. I helped her raise and educate my sisters and run the family as my dad fell sick ,had a stroke and couldn't work. At the age of 16 and took up my family responsibilities. I had not been bold until 2012 as well. Infact this incident is so close to my heart and it made me the bold women I never knew I had in me. My mentality before used to be like if a guy is approaching I should run in the opposite direction. Today, if a guy challenges me I'd challenge him back. When she ( Jyothi ) died she buried our fears and when we cried we drowned our f change the mindset of the children when they grow up. Teach them that there is no man or woman and everyone is a human and a being with life. To give respect and get respect. Sex should be commonly spoken off and not discreet and I can go on. But, at the end of the day it is the mindset. The ones who are spoilt rotten cant change. I am wishing that this generation is bolder, smarter and kinder children a and have a safe world around them.

    By @David B. Grinberg " What makes beBee, Inc. unique in the social media space is that regular users are the real "influencers," not celebrity personalities or cherry-picked "experts" whose content is force fed to users regardless of whether it's relevant or not. beBee.com allows users to receive and engage with content that's specifically relevant to their professional and personal interests per affinity-based social networking. This creates stronger business relationships and more successful personal branding. !

    Javier, I don't expect you to use this and that is ok, but drew one quote from a previous work on Contextualism and the powerful influence of an affinity based network.

    "Change is never easy, and as humans we are in fact sensitive to any discrepancy in complexity. Might we just try a little harder to put things into context and simply make the most out of our world view(s) across the landscape of context, perspective, orientation and civil discussion?

    And on a positive bee buzzing note, that is what I find refreshing so far about beBee."

    If you have a business appealing to the 18-40 age group it is pre-eminently the best platform for gaining exposure - however you need to learn how to manipulate photos, short videos and devote a lot of time to managing the account.

    I can find no qualifications or required credentials of the several 'practitioners' comprising 'FasterEFT'. Neither Robert G Smith nor any of the other 'practitioners' have specified relevant qualifications and accreditation in the fields of psychology and physical medicine. The emotional and physical well being of our fellow humans is sacred. Therefore before promoting and endorsing companies claiming the appropriate qualifications in dealing with these sensitive issues, we need to know their qualifications, accreditations, the scientific validation of their methods and results and finally, their fitness to practice as mind-body therapists. It is also important to remember that claims of intervention success that don't materialize can aggravate the presenting issue! For me therefore, the spectre of snake oil sales looms large in the endorsement within this post .... as per https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/drowning-in-snake-oil

    "The emotional and physical well being of our fellow humans is sacred." I am not sure that i can add to this very valid statement. Humans have a responsibility to each other for their well being. This being said, i would suggest that we have become a gullible society that allows the snake oil folks their entry.

    If society could internalize your single statement then snake oil would disappear. Measuring any self help against it would cause the deflation of any hype that may appear.

    I also believe that a lay person can pursue emotional assistance to others if they follow your value statement. It is when i see the agenda outside of your statement i know almost immediately the agenda is some form of self achievement that does not measure the impact of the act.

    I see these all the time, i can't go to or read, informative events or books and compress experience. Just because i go to a seminar on how to use a skill saw, i can't build a house. Thanks for the tag and i do believe you have placed this gambit in the proper circular file.

I enjoy helping folks & am here to help beBee succeed & they will be a great continuing success. If you read " Connecting The Dots" that I wrote it was posted on The Creative Coast which is another non profit where I help small business startups, all at no cost to really help connect people & share experiences.

    I agree with you completely, Jim, and I am motivated by the same things you are. As a communications professional with a passion for business and marketing, it is a very natural thing for me to promote beBee, which is a wonderful social media site that offers compelling content to interested and interesting people. As a writer, nothing could be more rewarding than having intelligent people read and comment on my content. I get a tremendous kick out of seeing how many people read my posts and like what I have to say. I have always been a fast and ready advocate for things I believe in, and I believe in beBee and the power of the wonderful community it is attracting. I didn't need to be named ambassador to do what I do for beBee, but I am proud and honoured that I have been. The work I do here will continue because I know my efforts will go toward making our online community stronger and more attractive than ever.

    Thanks @Jim Murray! As usual, I am just an ugly fractal troll. The best marketing in social structures, including social networks is a byproduct of a trust and the visions that are common for a large group of thoughtful, committed people (with or without the title) who can effortlessly change the world for the better. Their world and our world. This is a long-term process and the ultimate task for all beBee users. People tend to beleive that an enthusiastic support of someone or something that is worthy means to be a cheerleader. But it is still a sales relationship. I would rather call it this time a social responsible behaviour. George C. Homans, American sociologist and founder of behavioral sociology pointed out that social structure is a human interaction. The mere fact of belonging to something that is worthy will give us freedom. Freedom to develop and grow together. We won't forget each other and human interactions, right?

    Nicely stated, as usual, @Jim Murray Your blogs about beBee and other efforts -- along with that of all the ambassadors and fans of this wonderful budding social network -- has played an instrumental role in attracting more users to the site and growing its popularity. The fact is, to be blunt like you, LinkedIn couldn't give a rat's ass about it's users, especially the non-paying ones. This is especially true for independent writers who once helped build LI's publishing platform (Pulse) into the go-to site for independent writers.
    But then LI stripped bloggers of their ability to fully engage with their own networks who voluntarily chose to follow them. This was a cold slap in the face, to put in mildly. Thus, as you state, the exodus from LI for greener pastures began shortly thereafter -- and for good reason. Those of us who were led to beBee by the platform's "Moses" (John White) found an oasis in the desert.
    And for those who try to belittle ambassadors as"cheerleaders," I say this: Cheerleaders are all about showing spirit, support, enthusiasm and teamwork. How do I know? My better half, Nicole, was a cheerleader coach for 9-years. So to those who belittle the dedication, time and efforts of this group of impressive and admirable ambassadors and fans of beBee, I would just say this: lighten up a little!
    Thanks for all you do, Jim, along with the other fine ambassadors and fans of beBee. Buzz on!

    #14 Thank You for tagging me @David B. Grinberg, my heart just dropped when I read Irene Hacket t let the network? This is beautiful. I wish many places would adopt strategies like this... I know many who work in HR and they are almost robotic in nature, lack the empathy- I'm sure there is a high rate of burnout and it transfers to the rest of the team but this would sure be beneficial for them as well since employees depend on them for so much. I used HR as an example because of a recent incident or two I was just made aware of by a family member and a friend. Very inspiring video @Aurorasa Sima thanks for sharing.

    "Drowning in the Pursuit of Happiness" by Irene Hackett was one of the most memorable articles ever published on beBee. Now it's gone, but her words are eternal.
    "In 2014 there was a movie that was made that largely escaped widescale notice but which deals with the topic of happiness called Hector and the Search for Happiness. It is also a movie that Irene Hackett the writer of "Drowning in the Pursuit of Happiness" I know, will absolutely love. The moment we write or think about happiness we do ironically end up drowning it. Irene's buzz is fantastic because it involves so many different injections of thought, that to consume all of them would require us to spend much more time than the social norm for attention levels can sustain. Yet it is a powerful piece by its own right and offers great self-reflection value as well as referential value. In the course of reflecting on her buzz, Irene asked me of this..." - from "Living Concrete", beBee post by @CityVP 🐝 Manjit (https://www.bebee.com/producer/@cityvp/living-concrete)

    My intention in sharing this post and on beBee in general is more than Do No Harm. I want to share my personal experiences and passions. Take it or leave it. Hope it helps!

    Personally and passionately, I can tell you after breaking my leg in Middle School and having a cast for months, 30 years later I've been walking with my right foot rotated out and often getting knee pain. Yep, realized it because of this method, even after asking doctors in office visits to no avail why I had knee pain.

    After applying this pain-free method - no surgery, no PT, no chiro, no POLLYANNA coach, not even drugs from a shrink - I am Pain Free. To me that speaks results and it cost me nothing but a book and a free email exchange (disclosed in their *pricing*).

    I would never tell someone to quit their job and join the Moonies. Nor do I pretend to have all the answers. I'm not selling anything. No snake oil involved.

    #19 There is anestablished body of knowledge used by many specialities who use validated techniques. In the protection of my patients' wellbeing I need to know that a modality is validated and safe . I have not been able to find any objective (scientific or otherwise) validation of the Egoscue method nor details of the accredited qualifications of its founder. I would have expected at the least, a science degree with majors in human anatomy, physiology - specifically neurophysiology (with neuromuscular interface). I'll continue to trawl through the literature and will revert back should I come up with something relevant. Best wishes for 2017.

    #19 #21 This is actually a quite interesting conversation. I have been suffering from a pinched nerve or worse in my neck and I've been afraid to see a Dr. because so many are too quick to push for surgery instead of conservative management as you noted @Ian Weinberg. It's so easy for the best of us to be misled when we aren't familiar with the medical outcomes of many therapies or so called fixes we hear or read about. How do you find a physician that suits one's needs? In my case, a physician that is conservative and using surgery would be a last resort?
    Ian Weinberg
    31/12/2016 #21 Ian Weinberg
    #19 @Jared Wiese (+VALUE & RESULTS) This is not about 'doctor' versus 'non-doctor' nor is it about advocating surgery above conservative modalities. I personally am very conservative in spinal treatment - surgery is the last resort. What it is about is ensuring that a person advocating a treatment program has appropriate qualifications from an accredited institution and that they have subjected their work to objective scrutiny. I refer many of my patients for conservative management to accredited individuals. I'll continue this in the next comment ...

    #17 (continued)
    What I can tell is a sufferer with terrible posture. I slouch even as I stand - if you can imagine. And I get chronic pain as a result. Will I go see a doctor for each bout? Doubtful :(

    I can also tell you that when my wife broke her foot and needed surgury, the doctors where great - and expert - while we had them. Then PT kicked in and the support and effectiveness of healing dropped off dramatically. The other day - years later - I had my wife try the simple foot exercise and they helped better than anything the doctor or PT had been saying.

    Re: sitting, we just got new chairs at work. If I sit all the way back, for back rest, in no time I am slouching to form the C-curve - but in the wrong direction.

    His book, Pain Free, is from 1998 (based on his work as an anatomical physiologist since 1978 - and I believe I heard also due to pain after Vietnam).
    You are right, nothing has really changed, per recent discussions with one of his clinics. I have read stories of people having surgery and still being in chronic pain - to have it finally alleviated with these simple e-cise(TM) exercises. I am not saying to ignore a doctor and do these. I am suggesting if nothing else is working the whole premise is to do certain e-cises - and none of them should ever cause pain. And unlike traditional treatments that treat the source of the symptom, this looks at muscle memory and postural imbalances sometimes at the other end of our bodies that are actually causing the pain.

    I am always looking for the best strategies. Do you have any readily available links?
    Again, I respect you reading, your comment, and look forward to any more feedback!

    #17 Fair enough, Dr. @Ian Weinberg! I totally respect that. Especially since "I am not a doctor" and you are! :)

    Curious your thoughts on the other posts I have in https://www.bebee.com/group/the-egoscue-method and per http://egoscue.com/features/who-we-are. Perhaps you have just given your final thoughts, but I hope not...

    I have never read that anyone at Egoscue claims to be a doctor. Per http://egoscue.com/faqs,
    "Can I still see my chiropractor, physical therapist, massage therapist or other health practitioner while doing Egoscue?
    Yes, Egoscue can be used in conjunction with many different healing modalities. That being said, Egoscue’s goal is to return control of your health back to your hands so, ultimately, you aren’t dependent on another person or machine to achieve an optimal state of health. Egoscue’s “hands off” approach educates you on what you need to do to fix yourself."

    @Jared Wiese (+VALUE & RESULTS) Sorry to put a dampener on things but it's important to put things into perspective. Firstly sitting - should definitely not be at the edge of the seat, with pelvic tilt and extended spine (lumbar lordosis). This compacts the facet joints and stresses ligaments. Rather, sitting should be supported by back rest and lumbar wedge. Much of Mr Egoscue's work is not new - it's used by physiotherapists, biokineticists and chyro's. There is also no scientific validation of Mr Egoscue's work. As a pioneering spinal surgeon I'm somewhat sceptical of this program.

    Dear @Ali Anani I do have drafts of at least 3 more books.
    1: The first - trusting our senses in our organisations #26 I would love it to be out by September 2017
    2: A draft of the skills and capacities to give and receive non defensive feedback to ourselves, each other and in groups.
    3: .A draft of the story of caring for my mother to die at home - a book about death, dying and care of our aging loved ones.
    What I know now is writing a book is one thing, then sharing it so it is of value to others is just as much as work as writing!
    Unless perhaps, i apply your great model of writing themed blog posts that become a way of sharing and getting feedback from

    I wanted initially to include the comments on the buzzes. It turned out that the comments exceeded the book size by an almost a factor of 5. Instead, I shall extract the main highlights of comments soon in a separate buzz.
    I liked so much your kaleidoscopic effects example. I used before another analogy of opal as we see different reflections from different sides or angles. Yes, we need to see all perspectives and this was one main reason for compiling my buzzes into E-books.

And your words comes as loads of appreciating pats and filling the heart with warm feelings. Before I take pause, surely will make it possible to share some points from discussions, to let the knowledge flow further to grow. The subject matter related to posts I share had been delivered during interactions via real presence and virtually a few times. So I don't bother of owning any nor I focus to target, fish or net... all I focus onto reach. Sir @Ali Anani best wishes to you and all. I have reasons to believe in time travel and life forms out side of earth. "The way we see it: kaleidoscopic effects, what anyone see it, others may not see the same. But can be tuned to share synchronizing in line". Looking ahead to read the unlocked phenomena's at the same moving from present fourth to fifth automation culturing stepping into seventh industrial revolution. There are great minds, researchers, thought and productive thinkers with full of passion. Some carry more than one representation of their own, they know the why's and I am no one to judge. But being active on connected technologies some or many overlooking the phenomenon of 4th automation and 5th Industrial revolution "Catch the Cache".

    RE: "It is always a bad idea to NOT use hashtags" Would be interested in this lesson...."

    It's a question of twitter logic. People can search for hashtags, so other people load their tweets into Frankentweets, like "#HowTo #build a #loyalFollowing on #social #media". That may increase their chances of being found, but completely destroys any chance of being read.

    Even today, I read a piece from a known Twitter-guru who claims that 2 or 3 hashtags as optimal. That is certainly true if you can't rotate them. We can. Use at least 5. Mix up hastags and mentions if you like. The systems will cycle through them. You will be found AND read.

    That also helps in avoiding notification overload to those we mention.

    You tweeted Susan's post 84 times. That's fine, Susan doesn't mind the attention. But, she will get a notification of every tweet, every retweet, every mention. Better to add her in the rotation box. If you don't know someone, better yet to not mention at all.

    This is so important that if you don't use any hashtags, the system will add its own.

    Sometimes I'm tempted to cut the limit by 17 to allow for it, but that will get awfully confusing.

    #54 Re Twitter Math - anyway to integrate a one time tweet when it is saved, so the person can see the tweet on Twitter before scheduling? NOPE, and very dangerous to do. You just might piss Twitter off.

    If you use a share to twitter you are usually safe. Usually, because I've been seeing some that just don't work. There will be more of those when select to tweet links become more popular.

    The trick is really in respecting the counts above the input box. Also, the most common hastags are shown with their Twitter-math character counts. Try your darnedest to keep 17 characters available for rotation stuff. That way You will always be able to add mentions.

    I rarely have less than 20 characters available. The rotation systems frees up a lot of characters.

    FYI: Deleting 84 tweets (or 84 000) is one or two calls. It takes 7 calls to tweet something.

    #53 Not a bad, a very reasonable phase 3 or even phase 15.

    "It is always a bad idea to NOT use hashtags" Would be interested in this lesson....

    Re Twitter Math - anyway to integrate a one time tweet when it is saved, so the person can see the tweet on Twitter before scheduling?

    I am ending up with those double mentions of my handle & website because of the two saves. I am not getting the full visual - and I am certain I will - but thinking about the influx of users - a quick tweet test this saved tweet button before scheduling?

    If I could see what I'd saved on Twitter, I could edit it before scheduling. Now I am scheduling and seeing my mistakes on Twitter and then deleting 84 scheduled tweets...... ultimately less database traffic

    Just took a look. We will not be able to handle Russian and other Cyrillic alphabets until V2.0. The database, not the app, is rejecting it. That's why you can't find it in your campaign. The App says, "write this" and the DB says, "nope."

    It's a simple fix, but a long one.

    In V2.0 we will be rebuilding the DB and we'll fix it at that point. I don't want to delay roll-out any further than it already is. Sorry, but I thought about French, Spanish, and German. The Cyrillic and Arabic fonts were not considered.

    My bad.

    #51 It is always a bad idea to NOT use hashtags. If you have less than 17 characters available, edit the tweet. (Lessons learned the hard way.)

    Because of Twitter Math, we can't trigger an error on the writing side. That's why we elected to use character counters and let users decide. Just an FYI but I once put in a tweet that was 246 characters, but only 132 using Twitter math.

    I'll take a peek at the Russian, but I doubt I'll be able to make it work.

    @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian - I gave Russian a shot. I did not get an error when I submitted add tweet to db, but it is not available under the campaign "beBee Buddies" I tried twice.

    This is obviously very low priority... but there should be an error message eventually if it fails - is it too long(it said I had 2 chars for hashtag & wouldn't have used any) or the charset? I am fine with tabling Russian. But the buzz was available for a test...

    #38 Hey, Pablo - thanks for the Christmas gift. I am having fun with this "1200-pages-of-code-not-app", if you can't tell!!!!!!!!

    I totally think labels in English is perfectly fine. You are limiting the userbase, if someone wanted to resell in Spanish, they could pay for that, right?

    At least right now, I'm thinking the tweets in other languages are primarily beBee promotions to draw traffic here. And mostly it will be the image that grabs the attention, anyway - the international language.

    @Andrew 🐝 Goldman - maybe you can write a small intro to beBee in Russian and that is what I can setup to tweet.... with your 18.6k followers would be interesting to see if a tweet in Russian to a Russian buzz would attract new users...no rush over the holidays....whenever it fits in your schedule and mention me that this is the one you want to tweet, since I won't understand the Russian title...

That having been said I am strangely uplifted by your questions for which I have no answers and even more so by your answers for which I have, as yet, no questions.

    Pascal, the way I view social media as having potential for friendship building from friend-chips but mostly it expands and changes perspectives. The majority of us live our lives in the isolation of our self-built communities. The size and geographic stretch of the community differs for everyone. Social media has expanded our community and blurred the limitations of our vision. Dean Owen has completely changed the way I envision China, the Canucks I've 'met' (Jim Murray, Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, Kevin Pashuk) are no longer envisioned as cousins of the Eskimos (kidding), but most especially people like Qamar Ali Khan, from Pakistan, a country that US media has vilified, I have come to truly respect.
    To those that want their eyes opened to new perspectives can find it here. I don't see it as not having true value. Though we may bring painted personas we are opening lines of communication on a global scale. We are all potatoes, with all our dark spots and lumpy imperfections. I like potatoes, I consider them one of my most important staples and finding new ways to use the spuds is an enjoyable endeavor, no matter how you dice, slice, or peel it.

    #157 Debasish, I agree with you, in the main. I know of no Ambassador who has openly said he or she will not accept the promised future contingent compensation when the platform is sold or gathers significant additional capital investment. So, despite a number of protests and assertions that beBee Brand Ambassadors are not "paid agents of the company", the fact remains that they are. And I don't really know whether that situation is any more questionable than Advocate or Influencer Marketing in general, in which product or services endorsers are paid for their positive reviews. What I do know is that it seriously dilutes the value of what we used to call in print-based marketing and advertising "independent third-party" endorsement. Cheers!

    to be very honest, all ambassadors are having an inherent desire to gain themselves financially. but, the hypocrisy is that, all are apparently show in ostentation that they are least bother of individual gain. beBee is becoming popular out of ambassadors sincere approach to make it a distinct one. our contributions are should be focused on making it an exquisite social platform. we must not deviate from our expression. lest we will prove that, we are equally crazy for dividend only, not having the patience to make this social networking site as a distinct one. however, nice insight @Phil Friedman! we need to introspect ourselves.

It is a prime example of how you cannot give the user base tools for expressing anonymous dissent and expect it not to be used and abused punitively and spitefully. When you click a "relevant" on a piece, hovering over the notice pops up a list of those, including you, who have clicked relevant. But there is even more motivation to bring transparency to actions which are negative expressions.

    Nice, much-needed "truthing', @Phil Friedman. Thanks

    Definitely agree that beBee would be well-served to embrace some of the viable Group Management techniques that were pioneered-and-them-abandoned by LinkedIn. Sounds familiar. At the very least, there's the "well, duh' insight that abandoning support for Groups was why many of us abandoned LinkedIn.

    I believe that we also agree about the problematic role of advocacy ambassadors in "priming the pump" (https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/priming-the-pump), 'most are spending their time in concierge services and in boosting each other on beBee itself"

    Not that there shouldn't be a role for knowledgeable solutions folks to crowdsource some wisdom into a platform that's still struggling (imperfectly). For a coupla weeks there, I think beBee even toyed with the notion of offering equity compensation (i.e. 'ambassadorship') for something other than self-marketing, but not for long... Too bad. It is what it is *shrug*

    #148 Pretty obviously, Elizabeth, closed groups should not predominate on a "social" media platform. But, as a natural matter, they would never do so because the owners of most groups want high membership numbers. But sometimes and for some purposes, a closed group works best. (Closed in the sense that only group members can see the interactions.) I own a long-established writer's group on LinkedIn, which was closed, And because it was, members could comfortably discuss their work candidly, critique each other's ideas, styles, and so on -- and in general have a sometimes raucous good time without fear of being ridiculed by trolls or others.

    I also own an industry-specific group there, which is composed mostly of industry professionals and business people in that sector, and before LI changed the rules concerning moderation, we had many very informative and intense conversations about issues pertaining to the particular industry sector involved. You just can't do that when anybody and his brother can willy nilly post whatever blather they feel like posting, relevant or not, informed or not.

    My point is that private and closed groups can work out better when set up and run properly. As I'm sure you will agree, although one had the right to speak his or her minds, we don't have the right to force everyone to listen or to expect free access to all conversations.

    Thank you for reading and commenting. Cheers!

    #141 I agree that more tools are good. I also believe that if you want TOTAL control over the tools you get, set up your own damned forums on your own domains, and then you can do exactly as you wish, and stop being dependent on, and whining to companies that owe you nothing.

    Why smart people continue to rely on third party platforms, WHILE complaining all the time is beyond me. You and others bash linkedin incessantly, and no doubt you'll do the same if BeBee doesn't do as you wish.

    Such a sense of entitlement, and helplessness. Get off your duff and do it. The only way to get what you want.

    All - your engagement and contributions to this conversation are genuinely appreciated. For those who may not have seen or read it, the following post is recommended as a precursor of this one: ( https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/affinity-networking-is-on-the-line ) Thank you all for all your contributions. Sometimes the comments and discussion are more important than the post itself, and this is, I think one of those times.

    #141 The Ted Unoffical grou Ideas wiorth spreading.

    I was a moderator for a while and got an intimate look at the process.

    It really is as simple as adding the ability to add moderators or admins to a hive and then it is a matter of the hive owner working with hive members.

    It's this simple Phil, beBee in spirit is about including people and not using the same old tired processes to exclude people based on personal whims or a need to have the the illusion of control fulfilled

    #139 Really? Being a MEMBER of a group has nothing to do with it. And if you were a MANAGER of an LI group with 500,000 members, please tell us which one. I am saying that as an experienced owner and/or manager of several profession- and industry-specific groups and of one of the few business-related hives on beBee, my considered opinion is that the additional tools suggested in this post would help make management of certain types of hives more feasible. I am not suggesting that anyone tell you how to run your hive(s) or groups. You may do as you wish. What I don't see is why you don't want to reciprocate and allow me to run my hive(s) the way I see fit. Let's just agree that this is a matter of opinion and personal preference and leave it at that.

    #136 No one is forcing anyone to take on the responsibility of running a hive.

    Phil I spent more than a year in Li's biggest group with over half a million members and the best way to address your issue is to allow Hive owners to give others in the Hive administrator privileges and then it is all volunteer and takes inspiring your Hive to work with you.
