    Building Green?  How about a Rammed Earth Home?
    Building Green? How about a Rammed Earth Home? Building with Rammed earth (pise de terre) is an ancient method of building that has been dated back to around 7000 BC in Pakistan.  In Egypt the grain stores of Ramasseum built in 1300 BC still exist and parts of the Great Wall of China have...

    @Aleta Curry - I certainly did not know that parts of the Great Wall of China were built with rammed earth!
    Most people I work for are still stuck on the brick and mortar or concrete and it's a bit of a battle to get them to even think about using alternative building techniques. Council is also an issue, the best way is to put the plans through twice, once with conventional brick or concrete and then again with the alternative as you are actually building...

    Thanks @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee - this was supposed to be last saturday's post, but I got bogged down with it. I loved the concept of a rammed earth wall when I first heard about it, now I've seen them - I would love to design with one or even better own a rammed earth house!

    #11 Yes...The Mother of us all certainly has a way of getting the attention of her misbehaving children doesn't she?!?! It's been a very active storm season here in the US as well with two category 5 hurricanes hitting back to back on the Southern coast of Florida and the Islands...Hurricane Harvey flooding much of Texas and a massive earthquake in Mexico to boot finally shook us out our complacency...and then there's poor Puerto Rico decimated in the aftermath left to essentially fend for themselves for a long while before any kind of help arrived...This Country for sure has been on the radar for a HUGE wake up call for a long time...Let us hope we don't pull the covers back over our heads and fall asleep at the wheel again...

    That's for sure @Cyndi wilkins! We've been having scares here in Joburg for the last few years now, earthquakes (partly caused by allowing the mines to flood), no frosts in our highveld winters for the last 4 or 5 years now, decreased rainfall, hotter (much hotter) summers and people STILL deny that climate change is not a fairy story - it's happening, right here, right now!

    About 3 weeks ago we had a major cloud burst, flash floods, hail and a tornado here in Joburg... I was driving home at the time praying that my little car would not stall - the water was over my wheel arches and that the hail would not break the windscreen. We are definitely not geared up for unusual weather up here!

    #8 Agreed...That is exactly what I meant by having a 'community mindset' and doing what we can in our own spheres of influence to help right the ship here and make a significant enough impact to correct some the damage already done by changing our ways and paying more attention to the natural order of things...We have tried to control the environment to the point of depletion...and perhaps our own extinction if we don't smarten up. Now Mother Nature is taking her life back...and it doesn't matter how much money you have if you are in the direct path of her 'cleaning house.' ...You know what they say...Hell hath no fury;-)

    #6 Absolutely @Cyndi wilkins - and most of us aren't even slightly organised or forward thinking when it comes to climate change.

    How many times are we told to switch off lights in unoccupied rooms, not leave electrical equipment on standby? How many governments are making it easy to invest in alternative energy or even let's face it to grow your own fruit and vegetables? Do we really need to run that A/C 24/7?

    Why do people who live in areas that consistently flood not build houses on stilts? Why aren't round houses being considered an option in areas prone to high winds?

    Even though the powers that be - in what seems to be most countries in the world - are like Nero fiddling whilst Rome burnt ; we all have to take responsibility for our future and do our bit. The optimist in me used to say 'it's not too late' but we will all start really feeling the consequences of global warming soon - that is if we haven't noticed already. I am hoping that if we all take more responsibility we could at least slow climate change down or at least halt its progress.

    That Grand Mosque of Djenne is the coolest sand castle I've ever seen! Thank you for this fascinating post @Claire L Cardwell...It would seem to me, at the rate we are exhausting our natural resources and destroying vital forests crucial to our own survival, (not to mention killing ourselves with chemicals) this would be a fabulous 'alternative therapy' with respect for Mother Nature and all she has provided...Imagine how cool the world would be if we were all living modestly and cultivating our own little corner of the world living a simple yet prosperous life with the community mindset of these ancient civilizations...

    The lost city of Atlantis was said to be an extremely advanced civilization that as it grew in power, began to lose sight of it's ethics...Sound familiar??? As Mother Natures punishment...the earthquakes, floods and volcanic eruptions ensued and the island disappeared into the sea...What goes around comes around...right?!?!

    Jim, I'm tired of screaming. I'm tired of feeling sorry for my fellow Americans. Let's be real: We're okay with this shit. When yet another fruit bat who should never have had weapons splatted little kids' brains all over the classroom walls and WE DID NOTHING ABOUT IT...that's it's. Fuck 'em. Fuck America and its love affair with guns, racism, Gawd, and chronic stupidity. They don't want healthcare but they want their precious guns. They hate Muslims because of all the violence in the Middle East but they are just like those very people killing their own. Muslims simply prefer bombs more to guns; but in the end it's the same. A terrorist is a terrorist is a terrorist. The Islamic world and the American one are living under the same dark cloud. They have met the enemy and....

    I've started paying less attention to American news. There's nothing I can do about it and I've been yelling about the fucked up system for thirty years and no one gives a shit. The country elected a brainless moron that makes Bush II look good again. You can blame the Russians or James Comey all you want, and the share the blame, but in the end it's the voters' fault. Really, just the voters. Because they believed all of Trump's stupid shit. They deserve Trump. So do many liberals who pissed and moaned about how Clinton was no better and that St. Bernie was the answer to all their problems.

    Some NBC executive got fired for posting on Facebook that probably a lot of the victims deserved what happened because, you know, country/western lovers are often gun-loving Republicans. She may be right. I wondered that myself. I wondered how many of those people believed they had an inalienable god-given right to any gun they wanted. Probably many of them. I wonder how their families feel tonight. If they still believe that.

    But hey, not my problem anymore. America, have at it. I don't care. Back to hockey, hops and Horton's.

    Your frustration, @Jim Murray, is palpable for many. We live in times when the pressures on us all are overwhelming. When the ability to confront issues neighbor-to-neighbor appears to have vanished. When politicians are expected to do the impossible on behalf of the unreasonable. When inaction breeds anger and anger transforms into aggression.

    At the core of it all is a level of ignorance that, I thought, we were leaving behind. I was wrong. Despotism thrives among the nincompoopulation. It spreads in the petri dish of oft-repeated lies. And it feeds on the rage it creates, raising a sword or a pitchfork and telling the masses to hunt down and kill off the enemy.

    That's why education can't be subverted. Not by jihadists or tyrants or Betsy DeVos. Yet the United States has been spiraling downward since the '70s while disinformation has risen on the tide that Rupert Murdoch and Rush Limbaugh and Sinclair have churned up. And it's all about profit, knowing that you can fool some of the people all of the time and sell time and space to advertisers who don't care if their buyers are morons.

    As John Cleese pointed out, you have to be smart to know you're stupid. And too many have traded in intelligence for the falsehood of "reality" TV, of "fair and balanced," and of "count on it." After all, it's easier to believe what you want to than to have to consider alternatives, to vote for the same inept congressmen and women instead of analyzing opponents, and to complain about what's wrong than to understand what's right.

    So I'm with you. Fight on until there's no breath left to do so.

    There is a certain inevitability of where we find ourselves right now. Processes were set in motion a long time ago which are only now beginning to manifest. The crucible of greed, consumerism, deceit and political correctness is garnished with a generous helping of schadenfreude. And not so slowly the temperature is rising. Yes indeed it still has to boil over. Only in that heat will unsustainable values die and authentic stuff prevail and multiply. But sorry @Jim Murray we haven't hit ground zero yet. Hold on to your hat and all that is dear to you, most notably your values, we've still got a way to go. But the center will hold - there's enough critical mass around. The sun shall rise again ... you are not alone!

    Humanity wanders mindlessly into these quagmires and accepts solutions that are polar: Love and Hate. The expressions of those solutions can take many forms to exert control but in the end the religions formed weary and even go to war. The governments toppled by revolution that put "Our leader" in power in turn tumble. Frustration sweeps through the populace. And therein lies the problem. We are not of one mind and we refuse to let the other tribes just be. Until we can agree to disagree this madness will continue. Yes, we can rage against the dying of the light but what can we do to keep the lights on?

And until that void is again filled by some worthy of the position, we will wander in the desert of moral confusion without a compass.

    "being allowed to happen" Words are a powerful force among people who spiritually, morally and with respect for their fellow man execute their existence. But the crisis we face is not within this group. The groups that we face are mentally ill. They have stepped off the path of citizenship and joined a growing movement of "anti".

    I don't believe any president, nor community intentionally allowed this to evolve in this direction. This is the result of an experiment started in the 30's when our government with great intentions, started systems of unsustainable care and intervention. We are now baring the fruits of humanity expecting instead of giving.

    There is only one fix for this and those with the real power will never give up what they have to achieve the fix. Money on the right and power on the left, each is feed by a system of polarized arguments that channels votes, support and finance, as each side is afraid the other will tumble their empires.

    Over the next 100 years we will find out our resolve to self govern or endure a dictatorship of moral high commend. Thoughts dictated through media controlled by government. We have crossed the line now. Materialism has run its course and it will be, who will be the last man standing. History supports this view and intellectuals can speak to our evolved nature but the fundamental greed of the human will prevail. We have called it out of the box. It doesn't usually go back in until humanity is starving to death.

    I serve those who i come in contact, pray and vote to try and make a difference. It all seems so feeble in the growth of mental illness brought on by class warfare while the scorecard is shown daily in media and managed by politics.

    The game is as it was, as it ever shall be. What they did in Ukraine, will be done in the U.S. Line for line, lie for lie.
    They will keep building a 'martyr' count until there is an open rebellion, they will keep funding both extremes of the right and left until you beg for a new strangling "Safety", "Equity", or "Truthiness". As noone reads history, it will be repeated ad nauseam.

    #19 "Segmenting them just right can win the election for you" I guess we see a living example of the same. All this knowledge and understanding should be embedded in the minds of youngsters right from when they start deciding their career path. It will result in them dealing with the obstacles that pop up when they rise, instead of compartmentalizing them the way we've been taught to do, as Cyndi said. Creating effective leaders right from the scratch, as we are placed in a leadership role in different stages of our lives. Thank you, Harvey, for taking the time to explain this so well. I understand this so well and will communicate the same with those that cross my path or look up to me for advice on the same :)

    #18 I don't think you're wrong and probably dead on point. Leadership today is bogged down in reconciling self talk that should have been thought through actionable items presented.

    My personal opinion, this is why the coaching, consulting industry is growing so fast. We are struggling with so many self thought ideas on the table at one time. Clearly we expect this from our budding leaders, but from our senior staff, not so much.

    Politically all we here is self talk that doesn't inspire confidence in the voting population. But it does help to polarize issues and divide the voters. Segmenting them just right can win the election for you.

    #10 In some applications i can listen to others think out loud. Being authentic as the leader and exposing self talk can create havoc an open playing field for alpha players. From my self talk i can facilitate discussions and draw from the strength of others while leading from an affirmative position.

    My top players i expect them to take their own positions, weak and strong, and formulate a discussion of purpose. If not be quiet until you can. This may sound harsh on the surface but when meeting on delicate or major issues it's time for folks to put to task their executive thinking with their internal dialogue driving. I don't have this formula for our managers. They are leaders in the making and require facilitation of learning how to formulate actions into self talk into conclusions.

    I can only support this through a scenario where you are with your doctor over a possible serious diagnosis. I don't want your self talk. I need your years of experience, education to formulate the best plan of attack. I can offer no feedback to your self talk. I'm not a doctor. In high level corporate meetings, regardless of size, we need self talk to be a guide to our thoughts, not distributed amongst the group.

    #7 Yes dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee each of them were from different countries with different thoughts on leadership. But they all agreed that passion with purpose, the desire to succeed, experience/exposure to different cultures led them where they are today! Maria's career path was an interesting as she moved from a Finance into Hospitality without any experience in hospitality with just the zeal and motivation to lead and achieve success. I sat at the forum to see and learn, how these leaders have influenced the people around them but I've heard just one side of the story. It would be great to interact with the teams, these leaders have led and see how they've impacted change and brought about positivity in their leadership styles.

    #8 Self-talk is based on conclusions, directions, and recommendations. I think that is precisely what I read from articles written by some leaders I've interacted with. Thank you, @Harvey Lloyd, for throwing more light on self-talk. I think self-talk can be classified differently person to person, leader to leader.

    #6 Cyndi, I will practice more as this has resulted in clarity - "The more you practice allowing the 'space' for disturbances to rise up and pass through you, the more clear you will become"

    "Self talk should not show up outside of your head, but rather conclusions, directions or recommendations from the self talk should show up only."
    Agreed @Harvey Lloyd...lest we be considered a bit daft;-)

    Effective leadership roles require one to be grounded in one's 'self' first...so as to have a firm foundation to operate from...unfinished business always creeps up to haunt, so make sure to keep your ducks in order... You simply cannot be an effective problem solver for others if you have not done that for yourself;-)

    Some great thoughts and you made think about the chatter @Cyndi wilkins discusses. I would think that with the advent of social media we have become a thinking out loud type of communicator.

    I would also imagine that the higher you get within an organization and the pace/size of decision become complex, the expectation changes. Self talk should not show up outside of your head, but rather conclusions, directions or recommendations from the self talk should show up only.

    So this is not a lost point. WIth each leadership role advancement the self talk out loud should be diminishing and the assessment part should be growing in presentation.

    #2 How true it is...There is more 'chatter' going on in one's own mind than the whole world outside of the self...The more you practice allowing the 'space' for disturbances to rise up and pass through you, the more clear you will become...When we deal with the obstacles that pop up when they rise, instead of compartmentalizing them the way we humans tend to do, we will always be ready to write the next chapter as it unfolds in our lives;-)

    #1 @Cyndi wilkins Thank you, Clarity is exactly what I want to eat for breakfast every day. Cultivating the listening skill within the self by raising one's awareness to what their environment is telling them in any given set of circumstances is challenging with all the noise around but the minute I think about how it will benefit me, the ones around me and the ones I 'm sharing it with, I get Clarity :) It is challenging though to stay focused :)
    Cyndi wilkins

    Clarity comes with focused intent...and an authentic 'listener' has first cultivated this skill within the self by raising one's awareness to what their environment is telling them in any given set of circumstances...Be present...be still...and be stable in one's own mind and body first before you can have any positive influence on others to do the same...@🐝 Fatima G.

    Interesting stuff, @Dave Crane. I get up early as well. Most of my work is done between 4:30 am and 9:30 am. To me, those are the most productive hours in one's life. If companies operated this way (allowing naps in the afternoon, of course). a great deal more work would get done. Obviously this is problematic when you have kids, etc. It's still amazing how fertile those five hours are.

    Estimado Sr. Carballo....Hay una frase que no me canso de citar de Steven Covey con la que estoy totalmente de acuerdo:
    'La tecnología reinventará los negocios pero la clave del éxito seguirán siendo las relaciones humanas'

    A las personas, hay que tratarla a todas con respeto, sinceridad y honestidad, sea cual sea la relación que mantengas con ellas.
    Algo que echo mucho en falta es la falta de límites adecuados en las relaciones. Hay que saber estar en cualquier lugar y con cualquier persona teniendo siempre presente la intención u objetivo de dicha interacción. Y si no interesa, hay que ser sincero y no interactuar, sencillamente. Cada uno a lo suyo.

    Y estoy de acuerdo en que es una falta de madurez (que denota falta de liderazgo) mirar con suspicacia a profesionales y empresas que se dediquen a lo mismo que tú. En Kaizen Proyectos no creemos en la competencia https://goo.gl/DtirMR

    Excelente artículo... @Jorge 🐝 Carballo Pérez Estoy de acuerdo en que una empresa, marca o producto, si no tiene presencia en internet y en las redes sociales, es como si no existiera. Incluso estando en internet y en las redes sociales, no significa que la cosa vaya sola. Para que la cosa vaya, viento en popa y a toda vela... hace falta emplear muchísimo tiempo, para dar a conocer lo que haces y atender a tus seguidores o a realizar nuevas relaciones. Además, de saber cómo hacerlo. Ya que las redes sociales son todo un mundo a descubrir... Aunque las grandes empresas, lo tienen más fácil, ya que pagando a un profesional que se dedique a ello, el factor tiempo, ya no les resulta un handicap. Bss

    #57 @Pedro 🐝 Casanova "theta" sound is the Z sound. We always pronounce it in Spain and it will not disappear. It is not the same "irse de caza" or "irse de casa". First one means "go hunting". Second one means "leave home".

    Okay, this may sound silly to you, but I also want to go hear people speak naturally with what we called the 'Spanish theta' before it has disappeared!

    I love words; even words in languages other than my own are fascinating to me.

    I want to visit Seville! My son and husband went to the Canary Islands, over to Tenerife and golfed. On the way back they had a layover in Scotland and my husbands luggage was lost. We never got re-imbursed and they never found it. They had fun though and wow- the photos were astounding. After seeing this again, Wow- so many beautiful places to visit in Spain @Javier 🐝 beBee, I think I would need 3 weeks to take all that I'd want to see :))

    #2 Harvey, great to hear from you and thank you so much for your thoughts. I think the original of 'The War of the Worlds' was released in 1953, a master piece in its time. My business partner in the US @Mark Herbert always discusses paradigms and the shift of transformation within people, why innovation is so important, abstract and lateral thinking is critical for the future, it all starts with collaboration. The blurring dotted lines need to be connected more, communication lines more open and proper leadership to pioneer the best out of the people and to deliver real innovation and solutions, this is what creates the new and improved :-) Close

    Great read when considering innovation. I immediately thought of the sci-fi of the 50's and how the dreams of today were sparked by the films of the era.

    My version of innovation has always been asking questions without the confines of current paradigms. This kind of abstract thinking is difficult. Most folks require the tether of their learning to be absolute. Generalizing a future innovation from current thinking, about knowledge that doesnt exist yet, can be a challenging proposition.

    Innovation like many words becomes a flash card for marketing, blurring the lines of reality. I believe the word innovation replaced the words "new and improved" :)

    What a thought provoking piece Geoff. I must admit I shuddered at the first example because I was thinking about the daily horrors that go into making that amazing app a practical reality in the real world. Then I quickly got on your page of what on earth really is real innovation and I thought about all the negative aspects we as a society have endured because of the wonders of technology (yup, I am that old and have that much grey hair.) And I am at that stage in life where I am trying to weigh the good and the bad and determine the net positive. I don't have an answer. But I do see where you are coming from and I do appreciate your point. So much so, I am adding to my mix of 'what is the best practice'. Cheers

    #15 Thank you Joyce, but not looking for kudos or recognition. As you might yourself say, I am just seeking to inform others. What I saw during my brief brush with institutional mental health "treatment" was some of the most disingenuous people I've ever run into. Florida requires by law that the Patients' Bill of Rights (under the Baker Act) be posted clearly on the wall of every mental health facility in a prominent location. And I have stood right in front of such a posting with several mental health "professionals" while they blatantly contradicted what was clearly stated in that posted document. The only time anyone pays attention is when you start taking names, making notes, and talking about legal action against not only institutions but also the individuals involved in what is, in many cases, illegal detention. You are right. God help you if you fall into the clutches of the system without having an advocate on the "outside".

    #8 And Kudos to you for standing by your relative, Phil. Most often mental health facilities seek to split family off from patients and they are expert at doing so. They isolate their prey.

    #10 when lawyers are hesitant to act, it is usually because they are unsure of the law or they are afraid they'll be drawn into a case that will ultimately not pay any money, even if they win. The courts are important not because they are always, or even often right, but because they force mental health professional to go on the written record -- which is a prerequisite to being successfully sued. I have found that their primary tactic is to try to convince the patient or the patient's healthcare guardian to convert to voluntary commotment. Which people have to understand ceases to be voluntary the instant you agree to it.

    #8 #9 Truly terrifying Phil - I had a niece that was very nearly 'incarcerated' under the Baker Act. She almost volunteered herself until one kindly lady gave her the heads-up you mentioned. She was lucky.
    Equally terrifying is how many white adolescents (don't know the ethnicity ratio, but the white parents are almost encouraged to see their teenager as 'troubled') seem to be indulged by so-called professionals who will put them on lithium and the other mind-blowers BEFORE any real diagnosis is made. Sheeet...we used to call that growing pains! The Psychiatrists who practise this (as you know - MANY!) should have their licenses revoked. They have taken perfectly natural adolescent problems and turned them into labels the child will grab onto and cannot shake - seen it so many times in FLA. Of course, there are enough with genuine problems like bipolar, schizophrenia, etc. But to take ADD and turn it into something bigger is criminal.
    I used to employ in FLA when the 3-strike rule was legal; I won't even start!
    It is archaic and barbaric as @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher points out.

    Such a preventable death, how very sad. I can relate because my sister has been in an out of Psychiatric wards, she has bipolar illness with psychosis. There are times they've had her so drugged she couldn't even talk or get out of her bed. We did an intervention a while back, I initiated it. They weaned her from 5 drugs and she left with 3. That was progress believe it or not. She was doing so much better but just like the opioid epidemic, it seems drugs from Psychiatrists play a large role in an epidemic on another level. Our mental health system needs an over haul. It's still so archaic once admitted to a psychiatric ward in many places.

    #8 Agreed, Phil, but I have seen them outright lie to facilitate extended commitments. They simply deprive patients of all rights here in MA by finding them incompetent in front of a judge. I'm beginning to think the system has so much power, lawyers are hesitant to act. Once the system swallows you up, you are gone.
    Phil Friedman
    03/08/2017 #9 Phil Friedman
    PS -- Here is a tip. Never, ever agree to "voluntary" commitment, For in most cases, once you do, you lose the right to voluntarily check out of treatment, but become subject to the whims of the doctors and other "professionals" involved.
    Phil Friedman
    03/08/2017 #8 Phil Friedman
    The state of Florida -- which is generally backward, if not downright prehistoric -- in many ways -- has what is known as The Baker Act. It is commonly thought of as legislation that gives police and healthcare professionals the power to involuntarily commit people to mental institutions. However, although it does that, it is, more importantly, a patients' rights act, because it lays out that such commitments may only be for a period not to exceed 72 hours, during which time a panel of qualified mental health professional must examine, prepare a report documenting that the patient is a danger either to himself or others, and successfully petition a Court of appropriate jurisdiction for an order of commitment -- or release the patient.

    Of course, mental health workers often misunderstand, misinterpret, and outright lie to patients and their families and friends about the act, in an effort to coerce agreement to conversion to "voluntary" commitment. Especially, when a facility has open beds and the patient has insurance or is being covered by Medicaid. And even with the act, a patient desperately needs an advocate to insist on enforcement of the rules which place the burden of proof on those who would keep a patient confined.

    Still, the situation with such legislation is a zillion times better than without it. As I learned some time ago when I went to a locked mental facility to pick up a relative and literally had to camp in the admissions waiting room whilst insisting that 72 hours had passed with no legal action and that the patient had to be released or I would see to it that the facility and its administrators would be charged with illegal detention. The administrators did not know whether to shit or go blind, because it seemed they had never before been challenged in that way. And they reluctantly released the patient.

    Thanks for taking the time to write this @John White, MBA, you laid out the facts of the program nicely. We are not influencers and as @Dean Owen noted, we also are not responsible for managing problems people encounter on their posts. Isn't there abuse@beBee.com and support@beBee.com if people have issues? I for one, do not feel I am any better than anyone on this platform and I have much respect for all the bee's I interact with. There are so many wonderfully talented people on beBee and I'm doing today what I've done since I began on this platform- promoting as much as I can because I want to see beBee succeed and it's never been about me. Javier built a great team in Spain first and now with you John, and @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood working hard in the US to help beBee grow, well I see this as a win/win.. as I said, many great people here, yourself included.

    #71 #70 You both have summed it up nicely - the criteria is sincere effort. The whole point of this platform is the way that it is meant to accommodate each person tailoring their experience. Each ambassador does their own thing and contributes to the ultimate success of the platform in a number of unique ways. The commonality is that you do invest your time in a way that makes others enjoy their beBee experience.
See all
