    If we could live for a thousand years would it be enough to appreciate the people close to us. Is there enough time within our lifetime to share our gratitude for the breath of life we feel daily. Can we love those we don't know enough to give compassion? Maybe 2017 can be a year to embrace those who need someone to give love through actions.
    Just thinking out loud, with music that unifies!

    We are the world. Music unties and crosses over boundaries and walls created by those who don't understand humanity. It is our love for ourselves which is revealed by our persistence to share, care and give to others. What do you stand for when no one is looking, is who you are when you look in the mirror.
    A blast from the past, for a present much in need of unity, and awareness. Some thoughts through music!

    If you are an effective manager of yourself, your discipline comes from within; it is a function of your independent will. You are a disciple, a follower, of your own deep values and their source. And you have the will, the integrity, to subordinate your feelings, your impulses, your moods to those values.

    The only reason that America is divided is because of the liberal leftist refuse to accept our election results that our forefathers installed. Conservatives have never taken the streets to protest causing chaos and destruction avert a democratic won the presidential election. It is disheartening that you just fan the flames.

    I never mastered table football, Pascal, in my underage drinking days. Too engaged watching the door, ready to make a rush out the back, in case the cops paid one of their regular visits. Later on, my youth was 'wasted' banging balls together in the snooker hall at uni.
    When we're young, we think that life will last forever and so much time is wasted waiting for so many things to happen. It's so true that "youth is wasted on the young!"

    I am grieving. I feel sad for the mothers who lost their sons through a senseless act. I feel sad for the baby left behind who will not know her father. I don't feel angry, just deep loss. Everyday whenever I left home I would need to pass that carwash and my neighbors would be there having their cars washed. The young owner if he caught my eye would smile and wave. I was quite proud of the way he conducted his business. I note the world moves on after death, and my thoughts are for the family and friends. It could be anyone, and that is a reality we must not dwell on, but find a way to make a difference in our society. For a small island with 1.3 million people, five murders a day is too much... I will find peace, but first must pass this moment. Thank you my friend...#1

    Thank you for sharing how it worked for you. I do appreciate it.

    As i said when speaking to the group that caused this blog to be written, Personal Brand Development is the hardest to provide instructions for because we change as we age and as we work our way up the ladder in the organization or our company grows. These questions are so powerful because they get at our essence first then translate those key elements communicating it in the language of those that tell us what our brand is. Yes, holding it open is a good idea. I'm thinking of putting the exercise in my year-end have to list!

I was helping my sister answer that question, and yes she started with her name, etc. Then we drilled down into "who are you?" and she learned who she was and I discovered who I am has changed. I will hold this discussion open. I think we can all benefit from asking these questions!

Turning 30 was major for me. I got a divorce, had surgery and my father passed away when I was in the hospital. Two years later, I moved to South Florida. After that, I had many life changing events but I managed to keep moving forward. Happy 100th Birthday Marcia Rooks!

    #23 Lots of great snippets here, @Aurorasa Sima On banning by IP, that will only work if the abusers have static IP's which is quite uncommon in Canada (don't know about elsewhere). I get a different IP address each time I boot up. MAC addresses will work, since they are associated with devices, but I don't "think" they are available to the platforms.

    As for keeping sites abuse free and whether they want that....good point. When a celebrity feud breaks out on Twitter, I'm sure they get HUGE boosts in readership (lord knows why)

    I don't know what kinds of technology platforms have for automatically taking care of some of these problems, I guess we'll see what BeBee unveils.
    Aurorasa Sima
    20/02/2017 #23 Aurorasa Sima
    #22 I am not sure that any of the sites have the intention of keeping their sites abuse-free.

    I believe that LI, Twitter and FB would have the technical possibility to block serial abuserยดs IPยดs and they know who is only there to spam or insult people.

    Obviously, they donยดt mind as long as it makes the bride look prettier in terms of higher user numbers. CNET estimates that FB has 9 % fake profiles. Together with about 20 M dead people thatยดs 1B. Even for FB an interesting number.

    Looking at the mined data they are offering to sell their ads, there is no doubt in my mind that they know that fake profiles tend to be more abusive. They know who stalkers are. They know how beats up people and posts cell phone videos.

    They know "Heil Hitler" is neither legal nor could be in a "positive" context.

    They do censor ads. Try to put up an ad for a weight loss or money making product. They do censor boobs. They do not censor death threats, insults, words that discriminate minorities etc.

    Especially women are a favorite prey of those sad trolls. And why not in a zone without laws.

    Imagine a Kindergarten would allow child molesters. UNACCEPTABLE. Or someone would steal your mail. Wait in front of your door and scream insults at you.

    But on the www? Open door policy for sickos.

    Germany is suing FB for the continued refusal to remove illegal, abusive posts. Little Germany ... I can imagine how much FB will care.

    The short take

    Platforms like BeBee need to moderate content to) benefit the platform itself to make it sustainable, and b) to benefit all users.

    Group/HIve owners need to be able to moderate content for the good of all members and to keep things topical.

    Article posters should not have the ability to moderate comments on their articles, since their articles are for their own self-interest.
    Robert Bacal
    19/02/2017 #21 Robert Bacal
    Just posted this on the other article that appeared after this one:

    I have a relatively straightforward approach to the issue of who should be able to do what, based on the idea of creating common good.

    Bebee's responsibility is to themselves, and therefore to foster a productive environment on the entire platform. Hence, they get to, as owners, decide what happens where.

    Hive owners, because of their sweat equity and also because they are stewards of the hive then get to decide what stays and what remains in that hive. Otherwise, it all goes off topic.

    Individual posters do NOT get to decide what comments remain, since their primary concern is readership, and they have no obvious obligation to contribute to the common good. Any obligation of that type is secondary.

    @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee posted the following: https://www.bebee.com/content/1239991/1125737

    "beBee will be the first platform where we will be able to auto moderate ourselves"

    It's not clear what that will mean except that it is supposed to appear in the next platform update.

    If it involves filtering one's own feed, that is a good thing, of course, but if it puts the honus on the many millions to filter out things like obscene posts, hate speech, etc while continuing to allow posters of spam, junk etc to post, then I'm not sure it addresses the problem of the "bad" driving out the "good".

    Looking forward to seeing the next generation of Bebee, though because LinkedIn content and hatred seems to increase every day.

    None of it is relevant, none of it is even political discussion. Which makes the point:

    The Bad crowds out the good, until nothing good is left, and people give up on the platform.

    #14 Brian the use of the report button has potential problems, depending on how its used. I don't have much more to say on that at the moment. I can say that if I had a facility on a blog that I might host, I'd look at the post/comment reported, and decide using my own judgment, which would be my perogative. I would also spell out clearly what the report button should be used for, and make sure that it isn't used by the same people over and over again with little consideration for the other people around.

    While report buttons are anonymous to regular visitors, it is not anonymous to those running the blog/platform. Use of it when it's unwarranted wastes time, and I wouldn't take kindly to that.

    #11 @Aleta Curry It's difficult for people who haven't had the responsibility of moderating forums, etc, to understand or see things from that perspective. I've found that it's fairly easy to tell, from one post, whether a person is there to disrupt, spam and for selfish purposes, or whether they are there to participate in good faith.

    On my performance management group on LinkedIn, I post the rules, and it's not uncommon for me to turf someone after one spam message. Positive participants display different interaction patterns than do the people who basically end up destroying the forum/group.

    @Donna-Luisa Eversley It is currently under consideration in Massachusetts that reports taken from adults who were assaulted as children needs to fall under Mandatory Reporting law. As of this moment, reports taken from those who have achieved adulthood are not compiled under the law. Child predators do not stop throughout their lives (typically). Reports taken from adults who were assaulted as children could put the skids on habitual offenders.

    @Joyce Bowen ..you have written a very moving post of something we need to talk about. Children being molested and raped is heinous and I'm sure its something which will never be forgotten. My problem with 'the social society way of thinking' is it breeds criminals. Children cannot fight on their own and they sometimes grow strong enough to confront those who hurt them only when they are older and cannot be harmed. To say thank you for bringing up this topic seems inadequate as it obviously is difficult but I agree that ALL continuous reporting should be mandatory. #DoNotProtectCriminals

    #51 (continuation to #49) ... or allow something to skip thro' under the eyes at point blank... Pure extracted Sugar solution whether cane sugar or corn sugar mix with water "hydrocarbons >> glucose and fructose" breaks up and disintegrates easily by giving the sweetness into water (the concentration reduces as well as the sweetness). Similarly artificial sugar sweetener's whether it's sucralose, aspartame or saccharin carry high concentration factors.. But by natural some fruits are sour or not edible do carry sugar, also bee's gather nectar from variety of flowers also the Datura fruit, nectar extracted from flowers of (Momordica charantia) bitter gourd are included.. The involvement of extractions within human body results leading to hypo or hyper glycaemia related to sugar. Nectar been collected by bees from flowers of Datura & Bitter melon but syrups from these fruits has different properties and serves not same or similarity, carries other purpose individually. It's inhumane nature " a phenomenon due to reasons" make them to overlook and under or over estimate the caliber.

I will share an instance: Once due to an emergency breakdown required some spare parts, for reason I decided to get them, on way to city from site met with an accident (vehicle was new and in routine use on site), after necessary's done later after three days I was inspecting upgrades required at a place. Lunch was ordered for the team (skilled & semi-skilled) as well as for me and driver with us Prince Tagafi joined along. After casual discussion with all, while signing the document for Bill of claims said "it was matter of your life, use the assertive authority let me know who's behind the accident. To pardon or not it's up to you. Before you ask to proceed the vehicle repair, handover this this letter to head at police station collect demand note traffic controller and give to workshop". I knew there was someone for the cause of accident. Prince support came as master key. Within short time it was unlocked. Two were deported, they were pardoned. As one had younger brothers and sisters. The other had old parents, spouse and two infants. This was 19years before while I was in Saudi Arabia.

    #53 @Ali Anani sir after my comment, awaited for someone to pick the point "mixture of oxy-hydrogenated carbons which can be natural or artificial or blend of both have reasons for the extraction process. But it's inhumane to overlook or allow something to skip thro' under the eyes". Sugar directly or indirectly has a controlling part in vision. Sugar whether "Natural or Artificial or Blend of both' has effects on human body which has to be supplied as per "Demand Value" in management it's more of like "Voice of Reason". The requirement or the adequate dose when known or ruled out then the response is effective. Thanks @Donald Grandy you pointed on one of the key point.. it's not just increase but also decrease in levels affects and effects response to dis-function of organs. Damage occurrence's occur in either ways.. balancing becomes the efficient methodology.

    #53 Thank you so much dear @Donald Grandy for making a great comment. Yes, excessive sugar in our bodies is harmful as much as excessive salt is. Insulin -= voice of reason, poor eating habits = toxic team members and poorly functioning pancreas -= toxic team leader. What a great analogy! I invite dear @Deb๐Ÿ Lange to enjoy your comment because she is bound to be interested in it as much as I am. I don't want to say to many sweet words to avoid the need for insulin, but this comment shall stay with me for long times .

    As always @Ali Anani your posts are very creative and wonderfully written. I would like to add to your sugar analogy the management tool Insulin. As we are aware, an increase in sugar signals triggers your pancreas to produce the amount of insulin you need to manage the level of sugar in your blood. Perhaps we could introduce Insulin as the Team Leader "voice of reason" so when sugar levels become critical, Insulin comes to the rescue. As sugar levels occasionally spike quickly due to poor eating habits (toxic team members) or a poorly functioning pancreas (toxic team leader) there are checks and balances to keep the hive balanced. Thanks for sharing your post.

    Sir @Ali Anani focusing on "Sugar Solution" giving a comparisons with the "Honey" both are sweet and are extracted nectars. These nectars can be from flowers or fruits, stem or seeds, roots or resources.. else from the mixture of oxy-hydrogenated carbons which can be natural or artificial or blend of both have reasons for the extraction process. But it's inhumane to overlook or allow something to skip thro' under the eyes..

    While it helps to have your 'sugary mixture' to keep employees stabilized and moving forward as a group, I see no harm in injecting a small amount of salt into the mix to stimulate groups who may have a) become used to the status quo or b) whose activity has dropped off. Thank you Ali Anani for continuing to add to the conversation on beBee; it's appreciated.

    Great post @Miguel Lรณpez de la Oliva. A topic close to my heart. From my perspective, we are sensory beings and as such we form meaning from our experiences. It is our meaning, therefore our reality. The poet Alfred North Whitehead said: "Nature gets credit which in truth should be reserved for ourselves, the rose for its scent, the nightingale for his song, and the sun for its radiance. The poets are entirely mistaken. They should address their lyrics to themselves and should turn them into odes of self-congratulations on the excellence of the human mind. Nature is a dull affair, soundless, scentless, colorless, merely the hurrying of material, endlessly, meaninglessly." This process of how we form our "reality" is what needs to be clearly understood. Fear, for example, doesn't form our reality, it's our response to fear that does that. Everything we sense is information. It is what we choose to do with that information that forms our reality. You're right, we are the creator of our reality. But because we are individuals who depend on community to survive, our challenge is to form that reality which is connected or attached to a common reality. Awareness is the key. If you're "smart" about it, you can "have your cake and eat it too". You can be the individual you want when you find the community in which to express that individuality.

    Thanks for tagging me Donna Luisa! @Miguel Lรณpez de la Oliva, this was an excellent topic. I watched this video before and he just makes so much sense. I think it's great to recognize what may be holding you back or your fears (especially if they are extreme) earlier in life hence, better chance at over-coming them in the short term. I'm at an age where I finally had to seek help for some extreme stuff that my brain programmed and stored wrong. I'm currently working hard with my therapist. My sessions began with CBT (Cognitive behavioral therapy) and progressed to EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). I will have my 3 session this week. What is EMDR [ condensed]- "The EMDR therapy uses bilateral stimulation, right/left eye movement, or tactile stimulation, which repeatedly activates the opposite sides of the brain, releasing emotional experiences that are "trapped" in the nervous system. This assists the neurophysiological system, the basis of the mind/body connection, to free itself of blockages and reconnect itself." http://www.psychotherapist.net/emdr-faq.html This is one of the few newer therapies recognized and insurance will pay for. I don't want others to view me as a person with fears and anxiety who is unable to function, my hope is they see me as a person whose had a set back in life that caught up with her and she's taking the right steps to become more functional than she could have imagined. We all have our baggage but the brain is a versatile organ that is able to use other parts of the brain for processing information we once perceived as horrible.

    What I teach as a Shaman is similar yet different to this.

    It is a shared reality created by all ones and all ones share the responsibility for the reality shared by all ones.

    We create this reality for each other as much as we create it for ourselves and when you begin to do as is suggested in this buzz by holding yourself accountable for every thought and word you realize that at times for us to have means others must be made to have not.

    Choose wisely in deciding your desires and know for everything you have and want their is a price that others in the shared reality may have to pay for you to have it your way.

    In our region ,we are so accustomed to newspapers,magazines and also books and we take them for granted because we don't have the alternatives .In our profession (business consulting)we always need constant,instant and real-time information.It helps detecting new market trends and also see the world market with completely new lens.Bloomberg is now one of the worlds largest provider of data that help enhance our rigorous analyses and forecasting.

    At the personal level I used in the 1970's to read for some western philosophers like V.Hugo ,Kant ,Sartre and F.Nietzche whose books helped me to go beyond the organized knowledge of the text books.In one of these translated books I read this nice quote about reading"Without books we should be like cats and dogs ,who can only teach their kittens and their puppies a few simple things and who,because they can't write,possess no way in which they can make use of the experience of those generations of cats and dogs that have gone before."

    Dipwad is fine with me, I was born in England where self-deprecation was a neighbourhood trait but I won't add to that list of phrases we used back then; because that will only belabor a point when it is a descriptor of flow. Not insipid, just vanilla laced dipwad with a little brown sauce.

    As for veracity, that is ironical - after all the new shizen sandwich of 2017 is processed meat stuck between alternative facts and fake news. Welcome to the new emerging reality of Personal Trump Branding. Now that we know that Don can become President - time move over Mr. Trudeau.

    I am not here thinking this, doing this if I had not read Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. Not that he does not know about it because a conference delegate told my story to him at a Boston conference many years ago. What I do know is that Mihaly heard this story after he got up and stepped outside the conference due to his anger at a point made my a speaker on the stage, He was at that time already not happy hearing something from a speaker because it jived against his personal experiences out of the Hungarian revolution. It is here where this delegate went out to see what had upset Mihaly.

    That is where he heard my story and all I know is that it moved him and he was on all accounts surprised to hear this account, that admist the anger at the thing that a speaker called Francis Fukuyama said, his eyes watered that his book could fundamentally transform one individuals life. This is the strange circle of life - a single book that prevented me from disappearing into emptiness and meaningless - and the energy I apply today as I reflect on the question here. If anyone has any doubts about the veracity of this story, please feel free to speak to Mihaly himself - he will confirm the Boston conference account, just as I will confirm that stumbling on his book changed my life.

    I am not still a great reader of books but my dear friend Don - I went from "I don't give a shit about life" person to this learning journey and I still have a few more years left despite the fact that by it's close it will span beyond two decades. What you see me engaging here is flow. Sometimes this flow leaves me looking like a bit of a dipwad, other times an enlightened thinker, but it is nothing but flow - without rhyme or reason - other than I woke up to life and I got this thing called FLOW.

    @Juan Imaz - excellent article on personal branding and the beBee affinity networking concept. I'd like to add how powerful one's brand can become if personal interests intersect with professional interests.

    For example, in my current job as technical writer for a natural gas fuel systems company, I am always working with "automotive technology" and "mechanics" which are also personal passions of mine.

    I am also very involved in electronics and radio (RF) technology and have enjoyed my career in those industries.

    And finally, I enjoy teaching and helping others, so I am involved with educational plus hobby activities such as Maker Faire. I am blessed with actually enjoying my work and loving my job.

    #28 You are certainly spot on Roland Waddilove that LI is bigger overall but on a personal level I am finding that this is less relevant than I might have supposed. Posting the same articles on LI and BeBee gets me seriously different readership numbers. Articles posted on LinkedIn get a handful of readers these days despite a large enough personal network, history on the site and a known profile in my little corner of the Outdoor business world. The same posts on beBee.com get much larger readership numbers and some helpful and interesting feedback. My network here is tiny by comparison with LinkedIn but everyone gets a chance to see my stuff. Over on the other site most of my connections don't see a notification when I publish so that makes building up a network a bit of a pointless task. Somehow, for me at least, beBee manages to be bigger in effect.

    #26 Most of all ,we have to be able to differentiate between what works and what doesn't work.I think beBee leadership have a vision and confidence to position themselves in the right direction.The collapse of Linked in is not in favor of the professional social media ,as all followers may be forced to go back to the fundamentals and start re engineering the whole process to keep the strategic equilibrium around a portfolio of stars and cash cows ,not dogs.

    I think beBee is an interesting alternative, but beBee is still very small compared to LinkedIn. Even if LinkedIn shrank by 90% it would still be bigger than beBee. One day it might overtake it - never give up!

    Life is full of 'quid pro quo'... If LI no longer delivers (i.e. full distribution of one's posts) then bloggers and writers will move to a platform that will. Simple.

    Another thought provoking post Jim.

    #20 I think beBee is working towards very much being its own dog in the social media world. It's not a LinkedIn wanna be nor has it ever been, in my opinion.

    @Jim Murray The logic is sound.

    LI is a reflection on leadership. In the world of mergers and acquisitions, many of the multibillion dollar deals were the end game for corporate business plans years before they became public. beBee has introduced a new best practice model for individuals and businesses to follow. Keeping the person and/or business the focal point with personal and business branding. And it's working! Thank you @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee and @Juan Imaz. Great post @Jim Murray

    I blog on both platforms and a few others. I think its important wherever you blog to engage with others. Building a following and reading and engaging with other writers will increase performance of a good post.
    Good article @Pat Bagano

    Wonderful Producer @Pat ๐Ÿ Bagano!! Love these two ideas, among others:
    "Tribe Marketing. The bees who follow you and the hives you join are your tribe."
    "The power of beBee to help you establish your brand is amazing, it can pierce through noise, get people to your website not because you strategically placed the links on your content, BUT BECAUSE THEY WANT TO."

    Very well explained!! As an active Bee who loves to interact and share (because I want to), I'm going to share this great piece. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘

    Great article - I am on linked in, medium & BeBee - you are right - medium I get reads - no interaction, linked in - a little interaction & shares- BeBee much more interaction & shares - it is a bit of a stretch posting in all 3 platforms & twitter! I do get confused about whether all posts need to be different in all of the different platforms or whether some same posting can occur. I will follow your link on this - thanks so much. Deb

    Outstanding job, Pat Bogano. A worthy explanation of Medium, beBee, and LI, and how they can work for the writer.

    thanks @Pat ๐Ÿ Bagano for your support ! thanks again for your opinions " beBee seems to pick up where Medium leaves you. It has a built-in audience but your content maybe shared by other users in their hives instead of just being shared externally through Facebook and Twitter. This is what I think is the strongest attribute of beBee โ€“ Tribe Marketing. The bees who follow you and the hives you join are your tribe. They are active users and not just readers, compared to medium."
See all
