Comments01/04/2017 #23 Gerald Hecht#21 @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt yeah, exactly "Res Ipsa Loquitur" or as my acquaintances at the Jersey Shore (once sprung from cages out on highway 9) like to say (it's a linguistic hybrid; going from Latin-->Italian--->Italian/American/Central and Southern New Jersey dialect) :
"badabingbadaboom!"01/04/2017 #22 Devesh 🐝 Bhatt#20 and yes , in my case it applies to bebee. I have been using Linkedin for a long time. Maybe its the timing, maybe it is people , maybe both of them cover up for systemic lapses, but it works.
I say maybe because i need to be conclusive about it. That comes with awareness, from reading stuff , including yours.01/04/2017 #21 Devesh 🐝 Bhatt#20 a) i am marketing
b) i have expressed a personal experience.
c) i do have problems, i did not appreciate the initial responses when i publicly voiced them in comments and the delay in resolving them despite my persistence but yes a critical issue has been resolved. Enough for me to be patient, focus on the positives for now.
d)The more to life part needs understanding for which my point of references are bebee and linkedin, although i figure there are many many players but it will take study . For now the benefits got me out of a hole and it is a good thing.01/04/2017 #20 John VaughanYour "Benefits" table applies pretty much to any socialNet, @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt. Glad to hear that you've found a comfort level with the beBee version.
Any sensible/fair analysis also includes "drawbacks" & 'what's missing". Otherwise it's just marketeering. Which has value, of course. But ... isn't there more to life?31/03/2017 #10 Tausif MundrawalaIt's great knowing more about our fellow bees through their buzzes. You have always been very supportive my friend. You have summed up your entire journey here on beBee succinctly. I wish you luck for your future endeavors. I am exhilarated to be one among many connections of yours, @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt

Comments26/04/2017 #9 Anonymous#8 Lisa, Sadly there is a WWI precursor to this story. James Oliver Francis Wigzell, my great uncle on my mother's side, and the uncle of James Oliver Francis Bryson who Uncle Jim was named after, was killed in action in WWI. He also was 23 when he died. Such a tragic story. Two generations of death in wars. I do understand why ANZAC day was so important to my mother, and as a result it is important to me. My Father in law was much more fortunate. He had 6 tours of duty as a navigator in Wellington Bombers in WWII and survived when the odds were against that. We really do have to find a better way to resolve international tensions.26/04/2017 #8 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWhat a great tribute to your Uncle @Michael O'Neil. I was doing fairly OKAY reading this until I read he was 23. I can't imagine the loss his mother and siblings felt. stories like this always bring reality back to the forefront, I shall now wipe away a tear. Well delivered!26/04/2017 #7 Dean Owen23 years old...
I hope you do get a chance to visit the battlefield. Again, I repeat my comment I made on Lance's post. A solemn day of remembrance and as a pom I am eternally grateful for the courage and fortitude of the brave young soldiers, but apologetic for the callous incompetence of the British Generals.24/04/2017 #3 Nandita DeHeartrending. My grandfather Capt JM Bannerjee was a WWII veteran who was paralysed down his left side due to a landmine blast. Their jeep crossed it. He was found by the villagers near a river bank and it was more than 6 months later that the Americans suddenly brought grandfather home to Calcutta. There had been no news of him for this entire time. Till the last 13 days of his life he practiced as the seniormost criminal advocate in the Calcutta High Court with his paralysis. He lived till 73. He penned down all the travails of the war he witnessed in his memoirs. He was lucky he survived. But there were so many who didn't. I am so proud that both my grandfather and father were WWII veterans and served as only those who served would know.
I commend you on this touching piece which serves as a reminder of our officers and gentlmen and the times through which they had lived.

Comments25/04/2017 #6 Anonymous#2 David, you may wish to research The Battle of Manners Street which refers to a riot involving American servicemen and New Zealand servicemen and civilians outside the Allied Services Club in Manners Street, Wellington, New Zealand in 1943. The club was a social centre, open to all military personnel.
An interesting side story of US troops on R&R on NZ during the conflict.25/04/2017 #4 Anonymous@Lance Scoular, The ANZAC bond is unique in the world. Your Secretary of Defence spoke at the Wellington dawn service. A very moving ceremony as always.
my own post on the subject can be found at https://www.bebee.com/producer/@michael-o-neil/we-will-remember-them if you are interested.25/04/2017 #2 David B. GrinbergThank you, Lance, for this important and educational read. I believe many Americans -- especially young people -- need to learn more about world history and the customs of other countries/cultures. More Millennials and members of Gen Z should be mindful of the very short history of the USA compared to thousands or years of history in most other parts of the world. Thus, adopting and appreciating a multicultural mindset and worldview will help more Americans see their own nation in a broader global historical context, rather than a short-term monolithic one (which is narrow-minded and ethnocentric).
With that said, Lance, your posts about Australian traditions and customs are very much appreciated. Thanks again and buzz on, mate!

Comments26/04/2017 #30 david frick#28 You bring up some great points @Anne Thornley-Brown. My experience has been that producing content is neither a hobby nor an approach for immediate impact. I like how other colleagues refer to it as a long-tail approach that integrates well with social selling, digital marketing, SEO, email programs, and enterprise-level CRMs. I still have people reading and commenting on article I published three years ago!
One of the challenges leaders have with with implementing content strategy is that it is a specialized combination of art and science (kinda like advertising was back in the 6o's). We know that it works, but it is still new in execution and has lots of kinks to uncover. Unlike big media approaches of yesteryear, today there are infinite channels, strategies, keywords, and opportunities for results. There are LOTS more variables, but the good news is that we can test and interact with them easily.
Lastly, my direct contracts have been less than $100K and the B2B2B contracts have likely been 2-5x that size. Companies like HubSpot, Buffer, and Hootsuite (and plenty more) are making much larger investments into developing platforms that serve this specific industry. It lets me believe it is very effective at all sizes of business transactions.25/04/2017 #29 Javier 🐝 beBeeB2B marketers are indeed finding success with content marketing: 62% of B2B marketers in North America say their organization's overall approach to content marketing has been much more or somewhat more successful than a year ago, according to B2B Content Marketing: 2017 Benchmarks, Budgets and Trends—North America.

Why would any business want to invest a lot of time in any activity unless it was a charitable endeavour if there is no expectation of R.O.I. Have the contracts been with large companies? What is your focus?25/04/2017 #27 Sabrina Cadini, Live Streaming Wedding EntrepreneurExcellent post! I'm all about content marketing. It reinforces your brand and it creates solid relationships that are useful for: 1) Collaboration (this will amplify your message / visibility / authority); 2) Converting followers into clients / customers25/04/2017 #26 david frick#24 Hi @Anne, I work in a variety of ways in the B2B space and have earned several contracts from the content I post. Content is a way of becoming a trusted advisor with your audience while they figure out that they are ready to make a move. I have also been able use content strategies to help clients do the same with new distributors. I suppose this would be a B2B2B relationship.
The bottom line is that content can be a very effective tool. Too often people rush to attach an ROI on it to 'justify the investment'. I believe this is a bigger mistake than having NO content at all.24/04/2017 #18 Tausif MundrawalaA complete guide to build one's personal brand.

Comments24/04/2017 #24 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Preston 🐝 Vander Ven, I'm running into the same issues, people who've joined and I may not come across them for 4 weeks or longer. That's good news, beBee sure is growing and I love your suggestion!! I already try to find buzzes that have no comments and promote them as well. I feel bad when someone takes the time to create a buzz and 12-24 hrs later I find no relevant or comments. I go as far as to read buzzes that do not pertain to me - haven't been seen but pertain to many others. We need to go outside of our comfort zone and promote buzzes for everyone. Again, I will try to remember your suggestion too, it's a great one!!24/04/2017 #21 Irene 🐝 Rodriguez EscolarIt's so easy, I've done it several times, the first by accident. By reading an article that came to the mail, I realized the detail, by marking relevant, punctuating and commenting. I call it refreshing the article, sometimes there are bees that feel ignored, nothing like making this gesture, in doing so and give relevant, and present it to the bees that follow you. Remove the honey from the bottom that we know is sweeter.24/04/2017 #18 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanRevival of posts is a great idea, especially those beBee guides which will be a great help for newbees.

Close23/04/2017 #17 Tausif MundrawalaI have started doing this since past several days as I was browsing and searching answers for my questions co-incidentally I chanced upon my friend @Gert Scholtz buzz on his experiences relating to learn Spanish. I read and commented on it and shared with our fellow bees. Maybe they might be finding answers for the same question. Then this buzz would be of great help.
By the way even you are an excellent writer who have stimulated thinking with their intellectually charged buzzes.

Honey Pot also refers to the device utilized before indoor plumbing when the out house was outside. Grandma spun some tales about the pot and how it was used to to thwart siblings and behaviors.
I like your suggestion and will take a look.22/04/2017 #8 Gert Scholtz#7 @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven That is true and a very good observation Ali. One way to shorten the line is to every so now and again look at the Producer page on beBee and see which new articles are to one’s liking and can be shared. Especially newer Bees may find it more difficult to become part of the honeypot. This is something I advocated in my post on relevants some time ago: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@gert-scholtz/a-rally-on-relevant22/04/2017 #7 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#4 Thanks @Gert Scholtz for your lovely comment, which drew my attention to this buzz by @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven. The problem is that the pot gets bigger, the density of honey becomes thicker and to stir the pot is getting more difficult. These are all sweet problems.
One issue that also is worthy is the number of authors and followers increase and so picking one author at a time will leave it late for others.
Nice thinking and a great spirit for sharing, but because of the phenomenal growth of beBee the implementation may leave many of bees left out for no good reason other than waiting for the opportunity to come to share theirs and it might be a long wait.

They are the brains behind myTweetPack.
myTweetPack is a group (hive?) effort. Without everyone's input, it would still just be a little web app to build custom share to twitter links. People forget it still does that LOL.

Comments17/04/2017 #29 Anonymous#28 Thank you @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. Yes, it is applied science. Hydrogen embrittlement is a common, dangerous, and poorly understood cause of failure in many metal alloys. In practice, it is observed that different types of damage to industrial components have been tied to the presence and localization of hydrogen in metals. Research and development are focused in three directions 1) Next-generation steel and metal alloys, 2) Problems of the scale transitions and different approaches (macro, micro-meso, and nano-atomic) in multiscale hydrogen embrittlement modeling and study and 3) Practically-applicable predictive physical model.17/04/2017 #28 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI would never have heard of hydrogen embrittlement had I not come across you Milos. Your contribution is more poignant when I read this piece about next-gen steel featuring the University of Queensland https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/03/170316141107.htm
