    #5 @Ken Boddie indeed I see some people unprepared or taking a challenge too far, you have to respect the distance. At the last marathon I did, I saw a guy at km15 who was struggling so much that it was clear he had underestimated the challenge..... I see peer pressure in the running community here very clearly.

    As you well know, Pascal, running can be a healthy and enjoyable exercise, when undertaken within reasonable limits and when employing reasonable controls, particularly as we get older and especially if we exercise less frequently than we should. These days, I prefer to exercise in the gym or swimming pool for short bursts, but I remember how easy it is to get carried away on the road or track 'keeping up' with the group, ignoring pain, and pushing the body beyond previous limits. Many years ago, a friend of mine died during a race, the fittest person I knew, and this has stuck with me throughout my subsequent exercise regimes. I am appalled at the number of Australians who throw themselves into triathlons, with little training; submitting to peer pressure because of a need to form some work group entry or other, without giving any thought to the effects that extreme forms of exercise (particularly on an infrequent basis) may have on the human body. Take care, my friend, and continue to have fun, but listen to your body. Pain is your friend.

    #3 @Dean Owen the photo above was taken by the Irish Runner Mag photographer :-) John was young (less than 30) actually a lot of sudden deaths in running seem to happen with young runners for some reasons. I do run consistently but I don't do times etc. I do it for fun as I am too approaching 50 in a couple of years :-).

    A truly noble gesture. I wish someone had a video on you, that's the sort of thing that goes viral. I must tell you that as I approach my fifties, I am more and more reluctant to play Squash, a sport I dearly love, but one that has quite often taken the lives on seemingly fit and healthy individuals including Prince Takamado of Japan, an honorary member of a club I founded back at Uni. Huge respect for getting back on your feet the following year.

    Thanks for sharing these astute observations, Aleta, with which I concur. Also, if you click on a person's name while in Producer then it will take you to their blog posts (rather than full profile). If you click outside of Producer then it will take you to full profile. So, actually, you have a blog profile on Producer and a regular profile off Producer. Is that a third category to add to your list? Thanks for the good buzz!

    #15 Gerald, the metaphorical image you describe is fascinating. One of truth receding whilst leaving one static and always bound to the dangerous tracks. Or does that really work? For a real mirror only reverses left for right, and not back forfront. Consequently, it is the magic mirrors that are the most treacherous. -- Z. PS - "HALES" ?

    I was just thinking@Jim Able about the moral of this tale...I know that it is painfully obvious...the tale being a parable of course --but I think it should be stated nonetheless:

    "Holding one's Journal up to a mirror for feedback will inevitably reveal backward writing --reflecting an inversion of the high speed train of truth hurtling upon the tracks you've been tied to; the bondage being the only legacy your family provided for you".

That sounds like most of the folks who voted for the new USSA president. The United Soviet States of America.
    Loved the crash landing... Only justified because some folks are pretty thick on the inside ( really wanted to say dense) and need a serious shake up.
    The sensitive ending is not that romantic... Just like a man to let a woman land on her a#@ safely. Quite chivalrous, in a messed up kind of way.

    Snow White V sounds like a C prominent DJane occasionally indulging in a sniff or two of cocaine. But then it turns out to be a mischievous Oscar Wilde adaption with some Brüder Grimm and (DON, cover your ears) cynnnn...

    The pan-cakey happy ending, though ... "and they posted happily after". Isn´t that what princesses do? When thrown out of one country they travel to the next with a jovial sense of entitlement. Princess Wons Pink C maybe.

    I think that dumbing the story down a tad could help increasing the influential value. We learn from stories. If we understand them.

    Do you think that awareness of their digital footprint perhaps will lead to a reluctance to engage in open conversation? Aa demographic, I find millennials perhaps the least willing to engage through comments and the most aware of their online reputation. Baby boomers are perhaps carefree and tend to swear more online.

    I imagine the exploration of my mind through the contents of this intellectual buzz and expect it to alter my expectation on expectations.
    1. 'Imagine the expected’.
    2. ‘Expect the unexpected’.
    3. ‘Expect the imagined.’

    Out of the 3. I am familiar with side 2 of the pyramid.

    Side 1 & 3 : - To expect to acheive the goals we set we have to imagine that we are capable of acheiving it, inorder to actually achieve it.

    Imagination, expectations and unexpectations play a part and parcel in our day to day lives. And this is an extremely insightful buzz. Thank you dear @Sara Jacobovici My mind lights up with thoughts on the pyramid.

    #26 You nailed the thought. This post is one of my top reads and a keeper in my arsenal of feedback loop reading.

    A very influential gentlemen in my life did a small presentation for a bunch of engineers. Keep in mind the personality of engineers and their factual viewpoints. He took some clay, a large piece and set it before them and said, What is this? Being engineers they were able to describe many facts of how clay might be described.

    With a great pause, almost uncomfortable, he said yes, but it is also a measure of potential. The clay represents what could be.

    His next question was the game changer. What has to happen to the clay to release the potential. This totally stumped the engineers. The answers became hysterical.

    The gentlemen stated a creator had to happen to the clay. Well this got the room reared back in their chairs and the closed minds were totally evident. The rest of the presentation described them as the creators with the clay of engineering. In essence stating that facts of knowledge although important were only the clay. You have to happen to it in order to create.

    Your post is exactly the same language of that seminar discussion. Taking facts and adding imagination caused the unexpected and challenged them to reach beyond their own scope of identity to create something that had not been created.

    A long winded comment to say, think outside the box.

    Sounds simple in talking about it, but is much more difficult in reality. You inspire, as always.

    #21 You have produced, yet, another profound "comment" @Harvey Lloyd. The process you are describing, or I think you are describing, is on a very developmentally mature level. One of the first things that come to mind for me now is that those inhibitors you are referring to also may give us a false sense of protection against a vulnerability that we are not comfortable holding. And this in turn would prevent us from what you refer to as us being able to "believe beyond the scope of our own identity." Wow!! Have to stop and take a breath on this one Harvey.

    Just like every post of @Ali Anani, your posts, Sara, also consist of so many levels that force us to expand our minds. I had to read this one several times, and every time I saw one more fragment of a larger picture you beautifully presented.
    In the words of structural engineers, there is no absolutely safety. The structure may be safe under expected circumstances - which are required for its function, but under extreme and unexpected circumstances, like extreme environmental disasters, it become unstable so that a structure may collapse. I think no engineer can predict (imagine) all of the possible failure that can occur in these extreme circumstances, or a combination of unforeseen situations.
    Therefore, engineers imagine the expected and prepare for the unexpected disaster situations. But I wonder how we can imagine unexpected.

    #12 I have discovered, at least for my own exploration, we develop inhibitors to our imagination as grow in experience. Children do not have these inhibitors. They see the world through "all things are possible". Identifying inhibitors is the key to breaking through to imagination. Vulnerability in the non-critical times is where we can grow exponentially. During crisis we need to believe beyond the scope of our own identity. Bringing that level of vulnerability out of crisis into our normal lives is the quest.

    Great article @Sara Jacobovici. I feel that in today's world we are allows at the right place and the right time. There is just another ingredient, right mindset. For example, an associate told me a story where a man came up to him asking him for a loan to start a tomato farm. He told him that he would help him if the man would make a list of 100 way to come up with the money on his own. A few days later, the man returned with the list and my associate William helped him.
    A number of years later, he bumped into the same man, and now this man was very wealthy because with had a different mindset. He was an entrepreneur and using this method of finding solutions, he now had his third ingredient each time he found an opportunity.

For me, I'm asking those questions about my career and although I haven't reached the next destination, I continue to work toward it. I believe that place and time will align. As to why they haven't? Well, perhaps it is more rhetorical than not. Or perhaps there are still lessons to be learned. Whatever it is, I'm certainly glad to have happened upon your post.

    Another wonderful set of thoughts here @Sara Jacobovici. Success seems to find its luck because we seek, but so does failure when that is what we concern ourselves. In my early years of small business i realized quickly that the more work we were involved the more we got. When we were shallow on work the connections were lost and had to be sought.

    Seek and you will find. Creates luck in the area you are pursuing. Seek wisely.

    Great post writing about our sense of time and timing. If we are creating our world inside our being and our world is being created outside our being at the same time. So both influence one another at the same time. Is there another time when one is a little ahead of the other and so does more influencing ? or are they both in sync? Or are they not separate at all but just an extension of our reality?

    Everybody has his own view of time and look at time from his own "widow of time".We may agree on the goals ,both of us want the same outcomes and have the same Why,we just trying different ways or different how's to get there,according to time and cost.The question When depends to great extent on How, and the best thing to justify your how is to make your when shorter by going directly to the heart of the problem.A principle we often use with our clients when conducting any consulting assignment.The three great essentials to be successful on conducting shared assignments is; to work smart and fast ,and to stick to your intuition and your sense of time.The best way to persuade your client with your approach is provide him with a value at lower cost and time.Thank you @Sara Jacobovici for your insights.

    I'm still going to play it a bit more safe and schedule each tweet apart from the other. And, I will add less.

    16/01/2017 #10 Sandra Smith
    #9 True, Paul - I guess I need to find a middle ground... I found the scheduling of tweets caused more hassle than helped - but agree. If you put more thought into *HOW* you are scheduling and *WHAT* you are scheduling - it does work. It just requires a bit more thought up front, which some people don't seem to get. Hence your article...

    Paul, I used to TweetJukebox, now SocialJukebox.... The problem is, although Twitter allowed scheduled repeat Tweets at first, they eventually banned the practice so TweetJukebox had to as well.... As you say, people will abuse it even if they don't realise it's abuse....

    At first, I thought this tool would help generate engagement and mean I / my company was always top of mind. I'm now much more of the opinion that scheduled Tweets don't drive engagement - AT. ALL.

    Twitter is about the hear and now. The "micro moment" (to steal Google's marketing departments phrase). Thusly, I think if you are doing anything other than sharing in the micro-moment, you are not actually using the platform as it's meant to be used.

    I do share my articles on Twitter... but only once. Am I missing out potential SEO / Social media juice? Quite possibly. But I think the risk of spamming is too great to do anything other than this.

    If I miss some eyeballs, so be it. Hopefully they will see my next article instead.

    #4 You certainly aren't alone in that respect, Max. Twitter's seeming simplicity belies its true complexity. It has no peers as a promotion platform. Toss in IFTTT or Zappier scripts that scan for specific hashtags you tweet, and it becomes a social media server cross -posting to any platform with a good API (FB, FB pages, LI, Tumblr, Pinterest)
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    16/01/2017 #6 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #5 Exactly, Lisa. If you schedule 5 tweets right now, each to fire every 6 hours, in six hours, 5 tweets will pop up at the same time and every 6 hours after that. That cause two issues. 1 - Google indexes tweets. Those 5 will count as one (sort of). 2 - They all pop up at the same time on timelines in spammy bunches.

    Since we are creatures of habit, if you always schedule tweets at say, 09:00 the simultaneous tweets could really pile up.

    The easy fix is to mix up your intervals. Some at 360, some at 400, some at 300 etc, AND schedule shorter durations. It's so easy to re-schedule that you don't need to go waaay out. The farther out you schedule, the harder it is to control. After I hit "Send" I'll go change the default to 7 days.

    Another easier fix is to use either the Daily or Weekly Frequency methods. They will mix things up.

    Or, for shares, use the store and schedule in one shot method on the EZ Shortcuts page. It will tweet 28 times every 6 hours and adds a randomizer to the start time. I may add the randomizer to the Minute Interval method

    I've taken to only scheduling 7-10 days at a time. There's a button on the Daily Tweets pages to add tweets randomly from your inventory if ever you run low.

    Your token issues are more likely a case of a troll you have than too much tweeting. Stay under 100 tweets a day.

    I don't think beBee promo tweets are a problem unless that's all that swings by and they pile up. @myTweetPack only tweets promo tweets and RTs from members and has no problems.
    Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    16/01/2017 #5 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    I have been a great test subject for this considering I've had my twitter tokens removed 3 or 4 times now. However, I always use the auto schedule, so my tweets go out every 6 hours. I thnk we found today I may have been tweeting too many tweets even though the time interval was ok? Also, you told me that the tweets should have variety? So, by that... meaning I should not be tweeting everything beBee marketing eg? I'm trying so hard to follow all the twitter rules but they sure can be confusing. If I schedule say 5 tweets on the app within minutes of each other even though they are all from different users and I'm using "Minute by minute" with the default settings ( I change nothing) can that cause a red flag to go up? I always use the default, so my tweets are going out every 6 hours. This last round, I did have a one tweet that was double scheduled by accident. I hope my questions make sense? I don't want to get nixed again. Keep an eye on my account if you don't mind! Thanks for this @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian

    15/01/2017 #3 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #2 Yup, and myTweetpack.com covers all those bases. We even take hashtags a step farther. We allow for hashtags to be rotated so you can use as many as make sense. They won't all be on every tweet instance. We cycle through them. We can also cycle through @mentions if you want to.

    I've used as many as 28 hashtags.

    That ability also allows us to cross post to other platforms via IFTTT (or zappier, your choice) scripts. I use #in, #fb, #fbp,#tum, #pin.

    We also build your follow-me-on-twitter link for you (sue it in email signatures, or your site, in blog posts, on your grocery lists, wherever),

    Building Click-to-Tweet links with Images for blog posts was the first function we had.

    I can add to your list: Have a description that actually says something about you. Enough with the Khalil Gibran quotes already.

    I'm okay with #11, ask for retweets, but not to the detriment of a clickable headline. In other words, Ok if you can spare the room. Since we rotate hashtags, we clear up some space. On a similar subject, "pls follow me" is begging and does not work.

    #5 is seriously tough to do.

    I don't believe Twitter is well-suited for engagement. It's far too busy and noisy. My feed zips along at 3-5000 tweets an hour. The odds of my seeing a single tweet are minuscule.

    DMs are not much better. Most meaningful ones get lost in the clutter of "thanks for following me." I get about 100 a day. Now you know why myTweetPack.com doesn't have any such auto-DM option. I actually started working on a "delete those annoying DMs" function before I got sidetracked.

    I mean, sure, engage when and if you can but I guarantee you will miss 80-90% of attempts to communicate on Twitter.

    Hello @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, another well written post here & I agree with you " Pissing potential customers off is never a good idea. "

    Paul, I have found that to build a large Twitter audience you need to: Here are my top 14:
    1-Post great content.

    2-Write a professional bio.

    3-Use hashtags.

    4-Place a Facebook/Twitter/Instagram logo on your blog.

    5-Engage with others on the social platforms, be real.

    6-Make sure your content is shareable.

    7-Re-share other people's content that is desirable.

    8-Reach out to Top influencers.

    9- Use relevant keywords in your bio so you rank in Twitter search. Don’t forget to include your city or region name to attract local users.

    10- Use relevant hashtags in your posts. Tweets with hashtags get at least 2x more engagement, and will help you attract new followers who are searching for those keywords.

    11- Ask for retweets. Tweets that include “Please retweet” in their text get 4x more retweets.

    12- Find people you know by uploading your email contacts to Twitter. They are likely to follow you back, especially since they know you in real life.

    13- Include images with your tweets. Research suggests that tweets with images receive 18%-20% more engagement than those without.

    14- Promote your Twitter account on all your marketing materials. This includes your business cards, letterheads, brochures, signs and of course, your website.

    Now make it happen, start today.

    regards,

    My take on spun
    is past tense of spin
    To have a good spin
    means a good win
    to say well-spun
    means you've won.

    Sometimes the shimmering surface appears as gullibility...while sometimes this is so; closer inspection often observes the

    few helpless, gullibility free victims trapped in a hoodwinked society...

    ...a society comprised of the most loathsome gullible reactionaries; armed with pitchforks, and poisoned with the Kool-Aid, they chose to drink.

    @Jim Murray... As always I like this reality check. Being gullible is something we all need to be on guard against in life both on and offline. I'm not always skeptical , but I've learnt to watch and listen more to not be drawn in by my desire to seek the good in everyone. Yup..Gullible me is more of a skeptic and that's a good thing.

    An excellent article - and one which examines and states we all have a gullibility level - but for some the level and type of scam are important.

    But also sometimes something operates like a scam but is legal (for now). I wrote about one example in https://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/beware-scam-might-just-legal-martin-wright?trk=prof-post

    Snake Oil Salesmen work on our prejudices - not our wisdoms.

    It would be nice to have some examples if this becomes a series of articles.

    #12 @Cyndi wilkins Trump managed to use his showmanship and cynicism to his advantage and by attacking Washington's dysfunction was able to garner a lot of support. The trouble is that none of his supporters were capable of seeing beyond the rhetoric and and really appreciate how self-serving it all was. I don't blame Trump. I blame all the gullible people who believed his bullshit.

    #20 Jim and Pamela, we have to take care, in every case, not to make the victims the perpetrators. Whether people are taken advantage of because of their gullibility or desperation or both, it is those who take advantage of them, not they themselves, who are the violators. And as self-righteous as it may sound, it is up to the rest of us to speak out where we can to ameliorate the situation as much as possible. And too often, on social media, we look the other way. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/the-monetization-of-desperation

I don't think the line between gullible and desperate is all that fine. In fact, I believe they are two distinct entities. I do agree that both situations make people vulnerable, and when it comes right down to it, my advice would still be the same.
    Pamela 🐝 Williams
    17/01/2017 #19 Pamela 🐝 Williams
    I agree with what you've said Jim, with one minor caveat; there is a fine line between gullibility and desperation. When people are desperate, when they start to lose hope, they begin grasping at straws. For those who have never been there, who have never had to worry about a safe place for your child to sleep, whether you'll be able to feed them, whether they'll end up in horribly run system of foster care, just can't understand or relate to that depth of fear. Or on the other side of the spectrum; whether you'll spend your old age living on the streets, sleeping in shelters, or being tossed aside and ignored in a country of which you were a productive citizen for the entirety of your young life, is a real fear in many of today's societies.
    These heart-sick parents, these terrified senior citizens aren't gullible, they are desperate.
    Growing up I lived on both sides of the street. We went from desperation to extremely comfortable and back to desperation, and so on. It seemed like a never ending cycle of rags to riches. What it taught us was the untenability of life.
    The belief that if you work hard and are good people that your life will be secure is 'no more' and many, probably as many as were in this condition during the Great Depression live with these fears daily.
    We can't put them all in the gullibility pocket, desperation will lead you do things normal logic would scream against. But as I said; if you've never been there, you just won't understand or relate.

    That's my kind of ride, @Paul Walters! And I could have used something like that on Sunday, instead of the downhill skiing I did. Not at all the same thing, not at all relaxing. My leg workout a few days before set me up for disaster on Sunday. I had to step after every couple of turns to lean forward and stop my thighs from burning. So. Much. Pain. It took two of those runs before my legs loosened up and I was able to enjoy myself. Of course, at least I wasn't trying to ski uphill!

    Good advice, @Renée 🐝 Cormier. I worked for a company that changed their strategy so frequently, it would make your head spin. Their seesaw resulted in wasted travel, wasted hiring/firing practices (they would add 12 employees and have to lay them off within the next 6 months). Poorly thought out strategies can be very costly and wasteful.

    It's very unfortunate that companies are happy with status quo, I.e. If it ain't broke don't fix it, just pass it on to the consumer.
    I worked in manufacturing for 40+ years most of those were in management and waste and inadequatices at every level. Most are easy to recognize but management is blinded by the 💵 dollar signs. Thank you for this informative buzz.

I do love the Morgan's and was tempted a few years to sell off organ parts to by the totally impractical three wheeler. But living the last 18 years in countries where cars cost 3 times the price in the US usually means I settle for a Japanese car. I do love the frivolous pursuits of colour coding and rim selecting on car configurators. Who knew that such a frivolous pursuit would result in a gem of an article....

    It feels to me like time is internal and space is external and that mostly our thinking equipment manages to integrate these two dimensions, but we do, on occasion, end up out of sync - much in the way of visual illusions where we shift our focus just ever so slightly and see a different picture.

    I experience time as pressure. Mostly comforting pressure like how my dog shows affection by touch. But when I start to experience time as sharp, painful pressure, I realize I have focused on this perspective to the exclusion of all my other senses. Curiously, even though I know I often cause myself undue emotions based on how I focus on the pressure of time, it is how I experience the world until someone else points out they live within time without pressure.

    When it comes to motivation,the good things that come together is your inside-out purpose, potentials and fear of regressing to failure,and outside-in gain,rewarding,recognition and pride.Cross-pollination of any of these factors of motivation will have different impact on one's satisfaction and content. There's also bad things coming together ,inside- out come negative emotions and inertia and from outside- in rigid rues and deteriorating economies,all of which are anti-motivational and may be also depressing.

    #11 "It is not this or that; it is both acting and reinforcing each other in simultaneity that produce the biggest effect of motivation." @Ali Anani, you have taken the concept of "things coming together" and, from my perspective, you have managed to penetrate the 4th timespace dimension.

    In terms of time, I am always amazed as to how much you get done in the same amount of time as "us mortals" but I am hopeful you will at some point manage to find the time to expand on this exceptional idea.

    It amazing how cross-pollination of ideas lead to writing such a lovely buzz dear @Sara Jacobovici. Thanks are also due to dear @Deb🐝 Lange for provoking you to write this buzz.
    What a lovely idea: the synchronization of time and ~BOTH spaces-internal world and external world- can only lead to `Our internal world by itself, and our external world by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality". I would again highlight that the two worlds are spaces and the two have to be in synchronicity for our world to be meaningful
    What still intrigues me more is the extension of this idea. For example, external and internal motivators shall give real meaning to motivation if they are in synchronicity. It is not this or that; it is both acting and reinforcing each other in simultaneity that produce the biggest effect of motivation. I don't think this idea has been discussed before. I wonder what you think?

    When we create consistent internal and external inside-out and outside- in within ourselves,our internal actions and their external impact will be consisten,and our actions can easily be justified.Each of us has his own "window horizon" and stand by it to see the outer world ,whenever we change our position at the window we can see different things or see them differently.Everybody,also, has his own "time window" ,and because we are 'time binding being' our time widow determines to a great extent our capacity to see the future.Some can stretch their thinking beyond the norm and think strategically, and others have time windows that put limits on what they can do and think tactically,although the stimuli could be the same.Thanks @Sara Jacobovici and to @Deb Lange for extending your original post.

And you have made sense of it! I love the cross pollination in beBee! It is energising and exciting! I can not keep up - I have so many draft posts where I jot down ideas after reading a post. They are then waiting for the seeds to germinate a little more and then be thrown out into a hive for pollinating with others. BeBee is the best platform
    And where I feel the most comfortable.

    I like the idea of "cross pollinator " it's to my thinking a new slant on "thinking outside the box" and the less well known "ignorant observer". The latter someone not directly linked to the problem, who provides an answer new to the situation.

    Doomed by unity? Thinking about time, imagination gets the internal ahead , else we are dependent on the external for inputs.
    We sync light and sound to match the lips with the words, pretty effortless quick sync, but find it hard to sync with the slower things.
    Do we assume ourselves as slow and eventuality as doom?
    Not an opinion, thinking out loud,maybe reinforcing my biases with a strong desire to break them.
    So much to think about. Thanks again.

    I love this list of questions. It's something I have often pondered myself.

    "Is there another time when one is a little ahead of the other and so does more influencing?"

    I would say yes. It would be why we say some are ahead of their time yet they still have some influence as it is a shared reality and it is only that the rest took a while to catch up with the new idea or view on things and creating through the 100th monkey theory. Once and idea is spoken it must become in some way some form or some fashion.

    As to who gets to be first, who cares, I don't. To me what is impart ant is in understanding the truth that nothing can stop an idea whose time has come.

    Once the idea is out there, several if not many will have an idea similar yet may have a different way of expressing it. There was more than just Einstein that was coming up with the idea that became the atomic bomb. I think as a species we place too much value on credit for ideas when in reality none of them are new, only new to us in this location.

    It's why I am such a big fan of how the Druids kept records on leaves so the ideas would need constant updating and never would they be trapped by one persons view or one generations view on any given thing.

Now I don't agree with your thoughts on marriage, but I agree one should proceed with caution when making that marriage commitment. Guys, every woman or most will put her best foot , dress forward for you - you won't be seeing the real person if you rush. Ladies guys are going to sweet talk your panties off if you let them.
    Maybe we should do a dating column ..Hahaha...

    Where there is any portal of light shining through, grab it, bring it into view and then that is one more hole of hope, that light can get through. The coming generations will see more of this light than we were limited to, so long as we are not consumed by the very darkness that gets exposed in documentaries and instead see all of this as tiny steps towards a healthier view of humanity.

According to a study carried out by the British NGO ActionAid, 79 percent of Indian women have already experienced violence or sexual harassment while out and about in the streets. There is several group of people in India, as “Blank Noise”, who have organised several events, including the “I never ask for it” campaign, to fight this terrible trend and to raise awareness about it.

    I loved Malaika Arora Khan tweet on what you shared above with everyone. And some of them give women the push they need. To stand up and fight for the respect that rightfully ours.

    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

    @CityVP 🐝 Manjit so back at that time I watched several broken clips but had never watched the whole documentary. Thank you for sharing this with us. 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. Is it possible to throw all these baised men out and appoint new ones ! I don't know how to answer that question after Hilary lost the elections.

    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.

    #20 thanks for the detailed response. I think it has more to do with the chain of events, first get the facts, then decide to collaborate and then factor intent if it suits your method.
    Instead people want to save time and judge intent to decide upon collaborations, in the personal sense it's useful, but as a professional it's better to focus only on facts, intent will be taken care of by a well drafted work contract.

    @Devesh Bhatt - 5 stars for this thought-provoking piece. I am especially impressed with your item #3 under the heading NEVER ASSUME THE FOLLOWING. - 3. Another person's intent, it is a dynamic world. Just use it to understand possibilities and prepare for them. People assume others to be judging their intent, it can complicate responses on both ends and make it political. At best it is a hypothetical input.

    I believe this can be a reason why people don't get along. Assuming another's intent is consciously second guessing them, and if the assumption is negative then there is the chance of causing unwanted friction. However, to use it in the best interest of all involved can create a positive force thus avoiding unhappy and angry feelings.

    IMO, one must have a clear understanding of the facts before making an assumption and not base their assumption on another's intent.

    Life itself can be so confusing. If there is a person who never angers, I want to be a fly on the wall to learn from this person. Recognizing our behaviors is key to growth. I have made many mistakes and will make many more. I can only hope my mistakes become further apart with age and less extreme than some mistakes I've made in my past. I used to get road rage (embarrassed to admit that) but I realized it wasn't healthy or kind, actually dangerous too. I now find ways to pacify myself when feeling a bit of anger on the road and it works. To your point about being influenced by others, yes- whether directly or indirectly we all are even if we aren't aware of it. It's always good to take a step back at times and assess our own values vs. that of someone else's. Just because values may differ doesn't mean a person is bad, right or wrong. I guess respect is another key ingredient. Well thought out buzz @Devesh Bhatt

    Thank you @Ali Anani for bringing this buzz to my attention. You have produced a very thoughtful and thought provoking buzz @Devesh Bhatt. Dr. Ali is right to point out the concept of choices. It is part of my core belief that, as Viktor Frankl says: "Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." So for me, in spite of all the dynamics of what it means to be human, everything you have outlined in your buzz, everything that is out of our realm of control, we never lose our freedom, our ability, to choose how we respond.

    Nice first try, Wayne. I'm getting impressed with the BGE.

    On the subject of washes: In order of what darkens most: Egg yolks, Simple syrup (50/50 by weight of water and sugar), 35% cream, Whole Egg, Milk, Egg white, plain water

    Try this EZ pizza dough, enough for two good strombolis or one 14" pizza (you'll need a scale. Weights in grams) Instant yeast: 5g, All-Purpose flour: 255g, Lukewarm Water: 175g, Salt 4g, Oil: 15g

    If you have a stand mixer: Dump everything in the bowl. Mix at lowest speed until combined. Mix another 5-8 minutes until less "shaggy" at next to lowest speed.

    By hand: Dump everything in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Transfer to a large floured surface and get your hands dirty. Knead until smoother.

    Let sit covered for 30 minutes. Punch it down. Let sit covered for another hour. Portion and use
