    A superb article @Sara Jacobovici and deftly compiled. The issue raised is of critical importance against a backdrop of increased competitiveness and increased obsolescence due to technology. There has never been a greater need for pausing and reflecting to re-establish meaning and purpose. The current environment of purposelessness threatens to devolve into a collective existential crisis, without appropriate intervention. This is illustrated by the fact that I was recently invited to facilitate a workshop in Toronto - the attendees were all recently laid-off executive employees from the banking and financial sector in their early fifties. They had for the most part been replaced by technology. They will need serious coaching to re-create themselves with new purpose. Thanks also for the mention.

    Everything we found creative is generally generated by spherical minded people in this virtual world! Because a linear line of thinking doesn't allow you to back at the origin point again to rethink the matter! 78% of water is present in our brain, a dielectric medium, i think this is one of the reason why our brain give rise to certain creative thinking! As we also know that our body constitutes around 76% of water but as compared to body brain is too small! Thank you sir @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee for sharing such a lovely post !

    I agree with you that all pebbles are not same neither the water where it can create a rippling effect. What you sow so shall you reap. Bacteria working in tandem with ideas worth reflecting upon would create productive results. I think the best example would be a meeting of business partners where a partner discusses an idea to take the business ahead where other partners keep their point forth. The partner who discussed this idea would get constructive feedback and the disruption causes to come up with an idea which would be more fruitful one.

    Again a mind rippling idea to pen this buzz, Sir @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

    @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, so many ripples, so many ideas! I can only grab onto one of them from my first reading of your buzz and that is the discussion of the parts and whole. You write, "Understanding the parts may not lead to the understanding of the whole." As synchronicity would have it, I had just finished commenting on @Ian Weinberg's buzz about having started to read Kurt Goldstein's The Organism, today. Goldstein writes that we can learn about parts from the whole but can never know the whole from looking at the parts.

    #16 #17 This discussion gentlemen, @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee and @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, reminds me of the issues related to the blood-brain barrier. One of the medical developments is that there are now medications that can pass through the blood-brain barrier. This is considered an advancement because the field of medicine has decided that there are certain elements that the brain needs and were prevented from entering, and now they can. My naive question is, why were they prevented from passing into the brain in the first place. I haven't researched this enough to speak of the benefits (of which I am sure they do exist), I can only speak from the point of view of witnessing what effects this had had on my mom; so far, she doesn't seem to like the effects of what happens when she takes medication that crosses the blood-brain barrier.

    #16 Thank you for your very informative comment and links @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I recall once that I wrote that negative thinking is a kind of bacteria in our brains. Let me start with a quote "Microbial communities are found at many different sites on the human body, including nasal passages, oral cavities, skin, gastrointestinal tract, and urogenital tract. These commensal microbes shape the immune and metabolic status of the host and play important roles in human health and disease. The brain is one organ that has been assumed to be sterile in the healthy host, but this is probably not true – apparently we have bacteria in our brains"!
    http://www.virology.ws/2013/06/28/bacteria-in-our-brains/
    This is consistent with your comment. As for bacteria in the brain apparently there are. I personally have always wondered how our brains have 78% of their weight water and with no bacteria! Whether yes or no, we do have negative attitudes and thinking that do. One last point- bacteria whether present in the brain or not they still affect the digestive systems, which is in turn linked to the brain. We humans may send the wrong and harmful like-bacteria resulting from our senses to the brain. If we are hurt by our senses, which feed the brain, them indirectly we are hurting the brain.

    If we suggest that "we are what we eat" so let me start from this point :
    http://thechronicleherald.ca/community/1133646-we-are-what-we-eat

    What helps us with what what we eat are our gut bacteria. Now the one place I don't want bacteria to enter is my brain. Scientists don't know if brain bacteria is a good thing, at least those found in glia cells but generally it is not a good thing to have bacteria circumvent the brain's protective environment.

    At the same time new evidence points to a much more complex relationship between the gut and the brain then previously assumed. Previous assumptions were based on medical practice that separated brain experts from gut experts. It is only in recent times that work has begun to bring these two groups of specialists together, and so their findings are tertiary and the field is nascent, but the change is significant, because it moves us towards an integrated view of health, rather than a division of specialisms that previously would not see the connection as relevant.

    So it is that we now are open to new questions, whose answers are only now being tested and explored
    http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/312734.php

    As technologists map the human brain for the purposes of artificial intelligence, brain specialists are obtaining new information from the brain from partners that were not in the brain game before and that includes those in the artificial intelligence community and other medical practitioners such as gut experts. We know for now that there is a relationship between our neural pathways and how micrbiome can communicate with it, but the full ramifications of that are still being studied. It is autism research which propelled movement to a more holistic response to the gut-brain relationship.

    #11 I have read some works a few years ago that questioned science's venture into micro instead of macro. Macro being the end use and application. It was some interesting dialogue.

    #10 Just a question out of the billion users of mobile phones how many understand the science behind it? The best theory is an applied one and the users are sometimes find better applications than the originator.

    #9 Science is a wonderful thing. We can deconstruct something and generalize that information for future use. There is another science of application that is equally exciting, the science of application

    Not to discount basic science but rather to show that the shovel was/is a wonderful tool of efficiency in the hands of skilled folks

    Truly a very over simplified view. I am always fascinated by those who take the ordinary and do extraordinary things. Without understanding the science.

    #8 Absolutely correct @Harvey Lloyd in that the whole is greater than the parts. In complexity science we know this is very true. This is why leaving out some parts can be mistaken. A minor component might make the big differences later on. Complex systems aren't subject to the Newtonian thinking.

    Interesting post for thoughts this morning. Knowing the full molecular structure of a shovel is interesting but would submit the understanding of uses of the shovel benefit the end user more than knowing it's structure

    When we look at pebbles and water only we observe the fromation of ripples. However; when we consider what is in water, the prevailing wind and other factors then we may have different thinking. Your comment reflects well on this thinking and is in line with the observation of @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. Yes, we need to deepen our perspectives dear @debasish majumder. Throwing a pebble in water isn't the same as throwing it in water filled with algae.

    lovely intriguing post sir @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! I guess, we are living in the changing world and of course comparing to the former world, less developed. besides, where the water is deep it makes little ripple and largely it depends upon the volume of mass we are throwing. secondly, as you mentioned that brain comprised of 78% of water and i guess, naturally the external matter make little ripples or sometimes no ripple, depending upon the gravity and quality of the matter itself. yes, i do agree that material strength could be enormous and it could lead to a great deal of disruption and chaos. still the inherent capacity of brain to adapt as well accept the change is amazing! however, great post sir. enjoyed and shared. thank you very much for sharing such enriching post.

    EU Deletes UK from Official Map – Two years before Brexit

    In a paper published by the European Commission on 26 April 2017, “Reflection Paper on the Social Dimension of Europe”. There are two telling maps of the European Union on page 7 and 9. The United Kingdom is not on them, coloured not in the blue or orange that indicate unemployment rates in the EU, but the grey of the non-member states that dot the map.

    This is an official publication of the European Commission, one of the highest institutions of the European Union. Moreover, this is despite the fact, that, for almost two more years, the EU still includes Britain.

    On 29 March, British Prime Minister Theresa May officially notified EU Council President Donald Tusk of Britain's intention to leave the European Union.
    However, Britain has not left yet. By invoking Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon, May triggered a process that gives both sides two years to reach an agreement. Meaning that Britain is scheduled to leave the EU on 29 March 2019. Until that time, the United Kingdom remains a full member of the European Union.

    This is not how you prepare for “serious” negotiations. This is how you “piss off” your counterpart before you even started.

    Some of them have added ‘Brand Ambassador’, or various versions of this title, to their profile names. Some have added ‘Brand Ambassador’ as the position they currently cover, for reasons to be visible bellow the profile name, although it’s not an official job title.
    Others left the profile name as it was before, and they can’t be identified as the brand ambassadors.

    🎙 Your vision of things in the distance can be blurry, but it's those things that bring the most value. @garyvee talks a lot about the #Macro. It's gotta be about he macro of things, the long game. Nothing great come to fruition quickly. We crawl through the dirt, get muddy, crawl under and through the barbed wire of the market; as long as we have #persistence, and make proper adjustments, we may come out on the other end. It's the Macro that wins. Short term gains mean nothing, but mean everything in the long term. We build a home brick by brick, as we do our success and legacy.

    Toxicity at Work: A hopeless case

    This is unfortunate for you, your co-workers and the owner. Since the owner and chain of management are aware of this person's toxicity, I would stay away from the situation as much as possible. You don't want his poor attitude to affect your performance or your attitude.

    Perhaps, he has some deep seeded problems that have an impact on his behavior. I believe it's best to ignore his owner bashing. Don't give him the benefit of him believing he has an interested audience.

    This is your time to shine in front of the owner and management. Be strong and show your loyalty.

    First @David Navarro López, no need to apologize. In fact, my intention was to meet your deadline and was unable to do so. I look forward to contributing as soon as possible. I am sorry to hear of your situation but am encouraged by the response of your readers. Never an easy situation. I can only echo the insightful suggestions and insights that have been written. Please take care of yourself.

    #7 They keep him just because in Germany worker's rights are highly protected, and severance cost for 25 + years of service is a blackmail the owner is not going to accept. So he keeps it in a corner until he gets tired or retires. This I didn't know until last days. Now I understand. So , keeping smiling and looking somewhere else is the wise thing to do.

    You put your experience in such a beautiful way about dealing with a toxic person. I understand your sufferings. I just wonder why the management keeps the guy. Is there a reason? Sometimes accepting facts may lessen our suffering.
    If this employee is to stay then we have a reality and we have to live with it if no other immediate choices. TO fight wit a toxic person would then become like trying to extinguish fire with fuel! The best choice we have is avoidance with minimum contacts. You are dong the right thing @David Navarro López

    #5 I'm glad to hear your supervisor (the owner), listened to you. It's sad what this man has done to himself. In the end... it does come full circle.

    #2 Is a risky situation speaking to other colleagues, as I am only two years here, and he has instructed many of my co-workers along 20 years or more. What my co-workers are not aware of, is that he has turned to be poisonous for the company, due to a misunderstood loyalty to this sacred cow.
    So I opted to speak about it with my supervisor and the owner himself. They know very well what I was talking about. But they are not going to give him the opportunity to be the victim and ask him to go, due to the huge amount of money they would need to pay him for severance. Their advice: "keep away from him. Is a tainted good. Let time go by. Is a lost cause." Happily for me my superiors will try to make me work with him as less as possible.
    Above all, what is a real shame is that with his knowledge and experience, he could be enjoying his last years of service, instead of acting like this. I guess everyone makes his own choices despite the opinion of others or any common sense.

    That's difficult. In my case I said to myself that I won't allow someone to infect me with his bad mood. Sometimes I'm ignoring this person, sometimes I'm telling her my opinion, politely and strong. When I'm looking at her I'm thinking: Poor lonely fellow. I have so much more than you: Four lovely children and a relationship to a wonderful man...

    #1 Happy that in your case telling him not willing to hear more complaints worked. I tried this too. Did not work. What it worked instead to stop his s**t, had to be much more aggressive. Told him the next time he spoke badly about a third party, the owner, the company or other colleagues, I was going to call the mentioned party and expose openly his thoughts. This worked. With these sneaky people, you have no way to be friends. They criticise everyone at your ears, and you can be sure of another thing: If they speak bad on the back of others, they are going to do the same to you. So before telling him what I mentioned above, I warned my team leader about the situation, and what was I going to do if he did again. Guess what? The toxic one, when hearing what he was not used to, went immediately to my team leader, twisting terribly my words, as if I was the one backbiting others. This kind of people is enormously dangerous, toxic and poisoning, and need to to be handled like toxical waste.

    @David Navarro López, this has to be very difficult. Smiling while you are seething inside has to take a toll on your physical body and the mind. I don't know what the answer is in a case like this but maybe, just maybe you may have to speak your mind in an assertive, not aggressive manner? It's a shame more leaders/bosses are not held accountable. Maybe you can have an after work meeting with co--workers who are seeing this and ignoring it to devise a plan and stand strong together?

    @David Navarro López this is an important topic to talk about because it seems to affect many people at work across all cultures and across all organisations. I've one who colleague who felt aggrieved about what management has done to him, so much so that I have suggested that he should clear the air with them. But he did not want for fear of losing his job. He keeps complaining and picking on them and he says he has no one else to talk to about this. I said there was nothing else I could do. I said I was not willing to hear his complaints anymore. Ever since I said that, he has stopped mentioning his case. Will be interesting to hear how other bees would tackle the situation you are in David. Thanks for this buzz.
