    #11 Speaking of cow's tongue, Lisa, I had an old mate with a slight speech defect. He just couldn't get his tongue round the word 'kidney' properly. 👅
    When I challenged him on his pronunciation, he quipped, "But I said kidley didle-I ?" 🤗
    But nothing defective about the dulcid tones of this Holland family duo. As sweet sounding as the laughter of my young 5 month old grandson. 👼

    #13 It's about the PERCEPTION of power rather than actual power. In addition, there's a long history of "onlookers" to blame female victims of sexually related harrassment and crime. Third, saying no isn't the issue with Weinstein, it's about making his pattern of behavior public, blowing the whistle.

    Thank goodness some men get this.
    Phil Friedman
    13/11/2017 #13 Phil Friedman
    #10 Robert, I am not saying Weinstein’s power was not real. What I am saying is the record indicates it was not nearly as pervasive as some believed. Clearly, there were women of strength and talent who said no and went on to build successful careers in spite of “crossing” Weinstein. Perhaps the others didn’t have as much of a choice because they did not have the latent talent to make it independently of currying favornwith scum like Weinstein. — who have long been known to inhabit the cesspool known as Hollywood.

    My other point is that silence prevailed for so long because of a tyrannical ethos that governs Hollywood movie making. And because nobody likes someone who blows the whistle on an industry that represents to them a path to fame and fortune. Good discussion. Cheers!

    #8 Unfortunately, @Harvey Lloyd, the ones who said "no" are the stars who represent good press. What we won't hear about are the ones who said "yes."
    Robert Cormack
    13/11/2017 #11 Robert Cormack
    #7 Unfortunately, for some, @Lisa Vanderburg, the "couch" is their best friend. You can "love to act" without being the slightest bit talented. Those were more than likely the ones who couldn't say "no." Angelina Jolie said "no," so did many top actresses including Jennifer Lawrence. These actresses are standing in solidarity as women, but they know (and knew) exactly who Harvey Weinstein preyed upon the most.
    Robert Cormack
    13/11/2017 #10 Robert Cormack
    #5 No, the power was real, Phil. Everyone knew the stakes. Some called his bluff and did okay, some didn't. If you weren't having much luck in Hollywood in the first place, you probably weren't going to call anyone's bluff. It's not that hard to starve in Hollywood.
    Robert Cormack
    13/11/2017 #9 Robert Cormack
    I think the question there is, @Martina Baxter, can you weigh that (the things you love) against the thought of other women being preyed upon. Too many decided it was a career choice, not a moral choice.#2
    Harvey Lloyd
    13/11/2017 #8 Harvey Lloyd
    Thoughts of morals and ethics within a setting whereby you can have it all or nothing is a very challenging mental spot

    There is the person who places you in the spot and then there is you.

    We cant reclaim morals after the fact, on either side, nor can we play coulda, shoulda, woulda.

    Harvey should really be persecuted for all of those who said “no” and lost it all.

    13/11/2017 #7 Lisa Vanderburg
    It is difficult, to say the least @Robert Cormack and I appreciate your opinion. I'd heard of the Kardashians but not seen them, so I looked...I can see why so many ads are directed to big butts now!
    I have some degree of respect of actors (of either sex). To become a star means giving up any change of normalcy, privacy and a life of considerable bodily care - I would never give these things up, but I don't think I'd have cut it on the silver screen :) They are rewarded well if they 'make' it. I don't know if actors start out wanting to be stars or, as#2 Martina says, they are driven by passion to do what they are gifted to do, like anyone else fortunate enough to be in work that they love.

    Naturally, if acting is your drive that means being in front of a camera, using yourself - physically and mentally as the vessel through which you expose your talent; that's bound to attract the wrong sort of attention in an industry that relies on skin, body, and beauty. It's always happened (as you rightly mention), but there has to be a cut-off point. How would you feel if your wife or daughter were 'taken advantage' by their OB/GYN? Then, there are some women who just make it harder to draw a line; Kardashians will do. I expect the casting-couch to be hauled out again after the dust has settled. It's sad.

    13/11/2017 #5 Phil Friedman
    Again, in support of your point, Robert, if one reads the list of accusers and their stories, one thing that stands out is that those who resisted vehemently managed to make careers for themselves notwithstanding his threats. My guess is that their silence was engendered by the prevailing ethos of the industry, not by any real power of Weinstein to "ruin" their careers.

    #1 Phil said: "How would you respond to the demand for sexual favors if the demander had the power to ensure that you won the next Lottery? "

    The more accurate question is: How would you respond to the demand for sexual favors if the demander could stop you from doing what you love, and exercising your craft? Or not working again in your chosen field?
    Phil Friedman
    13/11/2017 #1 Phil Friedman
    Irrespective of one's gender, whatever being "forced" to do something out of fear of losing out on becoming super-rich and famous is, it is not rape. We're not talking here about threatening to fire someone who depends on his or her job to support his or her family, nor about physical threat. How would you respond to the demand for sexual favors if the demander had the power to ensure that you won the next Lottery? And the only consequence of you saying no was that your life would continue on exactly as it had before? This is not to justify or lionize predatory behavior, but to say, Robert, that you are correct. We create the Harvey Weinsteins of the world by overvaluing and overpaying in money and attention for their wares.

    Es cierto que a los españoles nos cuesta decir lo que pensamos, sobre todo si es diferente a lo que la casta dice que es la verdad. Pero no es del todo culpa nuestra, creo yo. Durante más de 40 años se ha matado, perseguido y lavado el cerebro a quien no estaba de acuerdo con el poder. Y eso ha hecho de nosotros un pais mayoritariamente facha. Lo siento, es lo que pienso. Ahora vivo en Alemania, y la gente aqui no puede entender como, independientemente del tema en cuestión, A) el gobierno ha tenido la desfachatez de usar la violencia contra su pueblo como respuesta a expresarse pacificamente y B) como el resto de españoles lo han permitido, mas bien al contrario. Lo que mas oigo de mis vecinos alemanes es: "¿asi se responde en españa a lo que el pueblo demanda, con razon o sin ella? Perdona, pero si esto sucede aqui (en Alemania) el pais entero se movilizaria. ¿Ocurrirá lo mismo cuando el pueblo en masa decida, por ejemplo, acabar con la corrupción? ¿ o reclamar cualquier otro derecho fundamental? "
    Me averguenzo.
    Es cierto que Alemania protagonizó el fascismo mas abyecto en el pasado, Por eso, han aprendido del pasado y rechazan de plano cosas como esta.

    #24 no se trata de ideologías por más que te lo vendan así desde dentro o desde fuera. Tiene que ver con la indignación. No fui a votar por ser catalán, no fui a votar por la independencia, no fui a votar porque me lo dijeran. Fui a votar por ver la reacción del gobierno. El mismo juez que lleva el caso ha dictaminado que el hecho de ir a votar no es un delito per se y por tanto se alteró la convivencia ciudadana mediante fuerzas del orden que además, según la oposición, es una acción ilegal ya que en 2006 se cargaron el estatuto de Catalunya dejándola fuera del marco constitucional. Y por tanto la utilización de la Constitución para venir a dar ostias no era legal. Después de más de 10 años intentando conseguir un pacto fiscal que nos han echado para atrás una y otra vez. Se han pedido cambios, reformas y siempre se ha obtenido una negativa. ¿Ideología? Sí, la criminal. Ideología? Sí, la política económica y la del Ibex35.

    #6 To a great piece, that reaches into the soul of every dog-lover and every person who shares a deep bond with his or her dog(s). I hurt for every one of my dogs who's passed. The pain lessens with time. And it is always the acutest for the most recent. So I've been melancholy since my oldest "little guy" passed last January. But your article, so clearly written by someone who "gets it", brushed away most of that residual sadness, and reminded me to be thankful for the time that we do have with the fuzzy members of our families. My thanks and best to you for that.

    in my experience, if you want truly to know and understand your dogs, you must allow them to sleep with you -- for that is a part of their pack bonding mechanism. You must take the time to frolic and play with them -- for they are interested always in more than simply being fed. And just as they study and begin to understand your speech and body language and regular physical rituals, you must study and come to understand their vocalizations, body language, and their ingrained tendency to habit and ritual.

    My dogs slept with my baby daughters from the first days after they (my daughters) were born. They watched over them, even scolded my wife and me when they felt we weren't responding quickly enough to their crying. And my daughters responded by learning from them how to guard the house against the mailman and other intruders -- indeed, both my daughters barked before they could speak and even today can whisper secretly to dogs, horses, and many other animals. The unhappiest times in my life were those when I did not have a dog.

    Unfortunately, we tend to outlive most of our dogs, and so must be happy for the time we do have with them. It might seem odd, but my strongest wish for my dogs and me is that when they pass, it is quietly and naturally, so that I am not faced with the most awful of decisions, when they are incapacitated and in pain due to old age.

    The last little guy who passed from the midst of our family had been with us for fifteen years. He stayed healthy and remarkably active (except for a bit of incontinence) all that time. One morning early this year, he ate breakfast, went for a walk with my daughter, played for a while with a toy, came to my home office to say hello for a few minutes, then hopped up into my wife's lap for a cuddle and -- simply died. A good ending to the story, if you ask me. https://youtu.be/FZyW_5qBbdQ

    #2 That is the rub. The stuff which just about breaks us, is very likely the only stuff which can lead us to healing. But then there are dogs! If we can follow their ways, stop pursuing all the crazy human twisted-in-knots extrinsic distractions, and just live to love, play, and listen to our body's directions, we'd be a much more successful species at enjoying & revering the splendor of our lives.

    #2 Thanks for sharing with us, Lisa! I agree with you 100%.

    I even worry for the people that check their phone while crossing the street, which they can do literally just seconds from this moment. I am so concerned because, if an accident was to happen, it would be such a foolish way to get hurt.

    Hi @Mac Gives, I don't find it hard at all but then again I never have my phone present when I'm interacting with another. I feel fortunate that when I'm with a good friend, they leave their cell phone in the purse or pocket. My husband used to have a bad habit of checking his phone constantly when we would go out to dinner, so I took my phone out one evening and did the same. He asked me why I was so quiet, not realizing I was mimicking him. After that evening, he has kept his phone aside and we enjoy our time much more now. I'd much rather remember a conversation than a text or email which can wait (MOST of the time).

    #6 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit First of all with regards to Dance I am actually very thankful you highlighted and equated the value of dancie and music intelligence in developing a harmony in the body mind and spirit Personally have seen instances of how the learners entire persona gradually shifts in time in sensing and sharing a positive frame of mind and body in practice of perspectives. Must add that the applications of dance where we look at dance beyond simply as an entertainment is gaining ground now in India only in the recent years .
    Secondly thank you for appreciating this buzz which is simply a passionate flow of how I felt after reading those words. Somewhere the verses and prose got interspersed along the way and I thought it best to let it be . Yes dancing is a lot like living life!

    Dear @Savvy Raj I love how you go from poetry to prose with the mid-point being the tearing down the wall. That worked so well for me and it is the first time I have seen anyone write that way. Dance is an important intelligence in my own life, though it is one I could have practiced far more when I was younger, but by the time I centered my humanity, I had invested far too much in the concept of masculinity than to be the balance that dance is - masculine strength combined with feminine beauty - dance as harmonization - and that harmony in turn being the music that elevates dance.

    Great article @Milos Djukic - Your example about the pianist focused on his piano playing and his decline in his physical ability to play as well as he did when he was younger. Perhaps that skill declined, but, I wonder how he changed, his ideas, his beliefs, his sense of being. Was he a Mentor to others? Did he have a kind ear? Did he listen well to others? For me, yes, some of the things we may do or know in life may become irrelevant, and if we are not learning anything new perhaps we will become irrelevant. But, if we are asking questions, being explorers, social scientists, discoverers of new knowledge as we age then we will develop different relevance. Just as the seasons change throughout the year, they never become irrelevant, there is an essence of the season that is the same, but they are never the same and they are constantly changing. So to can we if we have an inquiring, curious attitude.

    Losing skills as years pass due to disease or age is a plodding thing. To mourn what one can no longer do is a mistake. It is necessary to relish what was done.
