Comments05/12/2016 #14 CityVP Manjit#9 I like the bit where someone described the whole feel of Golddigger Stadium as pure Americana. The big difference I saw from the video between what I have seen out of the extravagance demonstrated in Texas is sense of community. Whereas the Texas stories are highly tribal, I got a real sense of friendship, community and family spirit in the Idaho Springs video. That is the difference I think Hollywood choosing Texas locations for drama and a more authentic relationship.
It turns out in my follow up to this story that Clear Creek High School has been moved to Evergreen and but the Golddiggers remain in Idaho Springs - but that is not where my learning stops here. I took a stop by to peek at the DIGGERS core tenants
DIGGERS - CCHS Student Athlete Core Covenants
They also have a Coaches Covenant but the chief values that I find most relevant are transcribed in the Student Covenant. They spell out what DIGGERS means in much more detail but the overall moniker is :
That value statement contains the core of RISE which usually is Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence - the school chose Spirit instead of Service. I actually prefer the word SPIRIT - too many communities water down things to service when spirit is more.05/12/2016 #13 AnonymousThanks for the tag @Lisa Gallagher. what a great buzz @John White, MBA! Enjoyed the pics and video. How great that you were a coach! I used to be on the basketball team in Jr. High & had a very short stint on the drill team in high school. (I quit to get a job - silly me!) The fun and comaradre is just so special! And of course the life lessons are priceless - teamwork, discipline, stretch goals, & so many more. I think what I loved most was the intensity of emotion shared with my teammates. Winning is great - but winning together as a team after putting in long hard hours of training together - is a blast!!05/12/2016 #11 Lisa Gallagher#9 I can see why you'd be partial to that town @John White, MBA, what a cool, old fashioned town! How far is Clear Creek from you? It's in or near Idaho Springs? I wonder how far that is from my son, looks like a place I'd love to visit! So many beautiful places in Colorado.05/12/2016 #10 Franci Eugenia HoffmanYes, your post is quite timely, John, because this is what makes America great - not past tense but present tense. America is still great, IMO. Just because some events aren't to our liking doesn't mean the country has gone to hell. Thank you, John for your positive buzz.04/12/2016 #9 John White, MBA#8 @CityVP Manjit In Colorado our stadiums are not as big as Texas. BUT texas has got nothing on this stadium. Set high in the mountains in an old mining town, I'd rather see a game here than anywhere in Texas. However, I'm a bit partial to mountains. https://www.facebook.com/VisitClearCreek/posts/1015200479731037904/12/2016 #5 Lisa GallagherWe've always been great, improvements are always part of growing. I'm glad you posted this buzz to remind people about just one of the things that makes the USA so great. I don't want to make this political so I will just say one thing- Telling the world, "We need to make America great again," is sending a very bad message which leads me to the crux of your buzz- you shared one GREAT example of why we are great and sports is one major feat that unites many of us.
I bet your memories are wonderful from your coaching days @John White, MBA and I noticed you still play tennis! My brother played on the HS tennis team and his coach was so respected. His former coach died a few years ago and many former team mates were extremely saddened by the news and went to his funeral. That coach made a lifelong impact on his players he coached.
Jason, the basketball player from the video... WOW- Happy tears!!!! So many things unite us and remind us how we do come together for various reasons, sports included. Love the photos.... the football players praying in the snow, what a story that photo tells. Thank you for sharing this John! Sharing and tweeting.04/12/2016 #3 CityVP ManjitFirst of all we should read this soccer score from the British Premier League - Bournemouth 4 Liverpool 1 http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/38121184 That game was today's big news in England. The ground capacity for the winning Premier League professional football team is about 11000+
Now I will go to just one state in America - the state of Texas and list out its capacities In Texas there are 1305 High School Football Stadiums with a total combined capacity of 4.13 million. The 10th biggest high school stadium in Texas has a capacity of 15,000. That is 4000 MORE than a game that went out live all over the world between Bournemouth and Liverpool.
Then things get extra crazy when one considers the sizes of college football stadiums. Yet it shows how valued high school sports is in America. That the large percentage of professionals flow through to traditional American sports - just imagine as soccer begins to take off in America - the kind of team the USA will be in a decades time in terms of being a world power.
The root of all that stems from high school sports and the community that comes out to support those sports. I agree it is quite a remarkable and unique phenomena. And it does not stop there residents of McKinney North in Texas have voted to build a $62 million stadium http://sportsday.dallasnews.com/high-school/high-schools/2016/05/09/mckinney-north-coach-mike-fecci-excited-new-stadium-voters-really-voices-heard

Comments04/12/2016 #132 Mohammed A. Jawad@Phil Friedman Pensive post, with vivid comparison between beBee and LinkedIn.
I think it’s time to grab some insights and updates to keep buzzing in momentum. Yea…when every bee becomes passionate to bolster beBee, then that’ll trigger beBee’s popularity more…and definitely beBee is going global, with upcoming novel features and growth strategies, besides more ease and options.
Proud to say that being part of expanding beBee platform, plus the cordial, spirited virtual environment along with the responsiveness of beBee founders comes as a great jubilation. And then, brand ambassadorship at beBee is a worthwhile brooch of role recognition. So, with dynamic attitude, let’s all be on the move!03/12/2016 #127 Franci Eugenia Hoffman#117 I agree, Phil and will add that beBee continue their improvements and welcoming attitude. The leadership and team interaction is a major draw, IMO. I think of beBee as a small town with a big city atmosphere, where the members are not just a number. I realize this probably won't last forever but hopefully the personal touch will remain to an extent. From my POV, this is what LinkedIn lacks and that is the personal touch.03/12/2016 #126 Gerald Hecht#123 @Phil Friedman wow --this is really so cool; the theory of the dynamic was very well thought out! The "two sided weighted coin"...that's why the UX stuff took a backseat during the initial phase! This is awesome!!! I feel like a puppy or an absolute beginner athlete/musician again --that's just learned a new "thingie"...
...it would actually be foolish to literally get rid of me because of the kind of student I am...time itself is now sufficient to turn me into a very valuable asset. But --yes it is probably time to turn my virtual volume way down --or just bring me out for special situations or something. Very Cool.03/12/2016 #124 Gerald Hecht#121 @debasish majumder yes...they will have to eliminate me. That's okay --I understand why now!
Someone like me would be the perfect "mark" (as they used to say on the Rockford Files) at the beginning of the "operation"; but at a certain point --(now equipped with an awesome first principle)..."Throwing me out of the Chopper" is essential if your competing with a LI or some similar behemoth.
That could be one of the chapter titles in whoever writes the "How to Fly the Chopper" marketing book.
This has been the most awesome course I've ever taken; a lab course...I feel like I got to see how to build a business thingie...all of that really was a complete mystery to me (no hyperbole--I really mean Mystical); I feel like I've been ringside at a "top secret mission" or something...03/12/2016 #123 Phil Friedman#121 Debasish > "... but i won't be surprised when beBee will equally eliminate you, despite your sincere effort to make it an acceptable portal of social networking across the world ..."
Well, Debasish, others have tried to "eliminate" me before this... and I'm still here. Although I ain't sayin' where "here" is ... just in case you mean "eliminate" literally. @Gerald Hecht, keep those recordings safe, and remember, only release them if you don't hear from me in any 48 hour period. NYT first, then London Times, then the others on the list.03/12/2016 #122 Phil Friedman#120 You are correct, Gerald. Soon there will be all manner of "10 tips on marketing to new users"... or some such. Daniel Roth, the intrepid Executive Editor of LinkedIn, called it "riffing" when he recommended that would-be writers watch for the developing trends in publishing on social media, then rip off the trending ideas as rapidly as possible. Before social media, we used to call that plagiarism. But Roth never shrinks from recommending the shallow and trite, when it pushes up the activity numbers. Cheers!03/12/2016 #121 debasish majumderI wish that, beBee may obviously adopt a path, utterly different from any other social networking portals. but i won't be surprised when beBee will equally eliminate you, despite your sincere effort to make it an acceptable portal of social networking across the world. this is business and we must not forget the revenue being generated by beBee, owing to our sincere effort to make it a popular platform of social networking across the world. i have mighty faith on beBee and i do believe that beBee will prove that they are utterly different from the majority. i wish, beBee will alone reign the social media.03/12/2016 #120 Gerald Hecht#119 @Phil Friedman This is the best Christmas present I could imagine! When I think about all this stuff I've read...10 vital whatchamacallits, 5 essential techniques for blah blah...it's endless!
It's all been about "reaching new potential users"...wow. Unbelievable.
It seems to me that as a first principle, one could also run it in reverse...or any number of things...
...it's like flying a helicopter.
I think that's actually the funniest thing of all --I've never seen a post with that title/theme; "Optimal Tuning of Marketing Needs; How to Fly the Chopper".
I bet that one shows up within 48 hours (and it will probably go viral for whoever does it); incredible!03/12/2016 #118 Gerald Hecht#109 @Phil Friedman Finally: After two years...I actually received the definition: "marketing is all about, namely, reaching new potential users"...did people think I was joking when I kept asking that question?
That thingie in quotation marks up there is the only thing I was searching for!
Endless posts about how to "it"...blah blah...all contradicting each other --it's still mostly all of the kinds of posts there are.
Now I know what the "it" is...
...and I've been doing it all along!
Thank you!03/12/2016 #117 Phil Friedman#115 I agree, Franci, but the question is how do you best do that? I personally believe that the best way is to assure that 1) the level of engagement overall on the platform remains high, and 2) a relatively high percentage of the content remains interesting and of substance. Admittedly, those are both somewhat subjective and imprecise concepts. However, not being able to define precisely what they are, does not mean we can't recognize clear examples each side of the line. We know pseudo-positive fluff when we see it in comments, and we know uncivil trollish turmoil and other forms of pure BS when we see that as well. In the circumstances, "policing" is not an option, but setting a good example is. I thank you and @Aurorasa Sima for joining the conversation here. Cheers!

Comments04/12/2016 #22 Mohammed A. Jawad@Donna-Luisa Eversley I must say that you have taken a bold step to express yourself. Good wishes to you.
All i say is parents are glowing lanterns in our lives. Under their tutelage, we receive guidance, way, counsel, suggestions, light, answers, solutions, grace, warmth, encouragement, motivation, love, care, shelter...Aha...in whatever manner we've grown up, become too qualified with many degrees and years of experience, but in front of our old, ageing parents, we are still their children, and we still require their best advice that comes with their blessings. Hope one day, your daughter will realize this. :)
04/12/2016 #18 Lisa Gallagher#5 Wow, so sorry for your loss @FancyJ . How long has it been? Thank the heavens above your son found strength in family and didn't follow through because of the extreme pain he felt. Looks like Donna touched on a great subject, so many obstacles when raising children and each path differs.04/12/2016 #16 Donna-Luisa Eversley#14 @Pascal Derrin ...i agree I have kept my babes in a cocoon and now I don't think she is ready for the world. My son says I will never think she is ready, but she will swim and I have to trust that..
I just don't want her to have the tough life I have had... Then my son advises, I turned out OK, so though is not that bad..
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience.. I appreciate your support.. 😊🐝🐝.04/12/2016 #15 Donna-Luisa Eversley#12 @Julie Hickman...thanks so much.. I receive that hug 😊..i appreciate your support and shared experience. It feels really good reading from you and so many others... As a parent it is nice to hear from those who have been through similar situations and come out OK. I am glad for all this interaction.🐝🐝🌹03/12/2016 #14 Pascal Derrien 🐝I think boy or girl they all drift away from the mother ship at some point it is part of the path to growing up with a lot things that I think us parents don't like very much.... we do what we can as parents not always what we want there are days we cope better and some not so much. Personally mine don't realise it yet but they live in a cocoon to a certain extent and if I can spare them the sh*t I went thru at their age I think I would have done a good job... they will realize it later and gratitude may land at that point or maybe not.... :-)03/12/2016 #13 Max J. CarterMy son is the biggest part of my world. I use behavioral psychology with hin in the nick name I gave him as an infant.
At age 4 when he would act up and out I started talking to him and telling him what it means to be The Dude.
Be a friend
Say please and thank you.
Be honest even if it gets in trouble.
And other behaviors we can all agree are helpful in getting along with other people and being respectful and courteous.
I never have to punish him, we have a 2 minute convo that has him readjusted and understanding shit happens and we all have moments where we act up or out because we are all human. It gives him and identity to grow within and still be an individual.
A few months ago wild geese let The Dude pet them and pick up and hold their young.
It takes patience to not react to him acting out or up and remembering myself that all it takes is a simple conversation to remind us both of the behaviors we both should use to be a better example of decent human beings.
I probably fail more than he does, however he is a constant reminder as to why I work at it to not be a hypocrite in his eyes and it is the hypocrisy our children see that does more harm than anything else we do.03/12/2016 #12 Julie HickmanDear Donna-Luisa, I just wanted to send you my thoughts and hugs! My daughter is my heart and, as you say, they are bound to resemble the good and bad traits we had growing up. My daughter is an only child and it took all I had to get through those teenage years into the tender years you currently describe.
What I learned is that you and only you are the best person in your daughter's life to show her what a strong, loving and independent thinking woman looks like and what she can achieve. With your unwavering love and devotion, your daughter has the absolute best advantage she needs to grow in character and prosper in life.03/12/2016 #10 Donna-Luisa Eversley#9 @Irene Hackett...I am so overwhelmed by your words and support..got my 'weepies of gratitude on flow'.. yes as single moms it sure seems like a mountain to climb sometimes...I guess I was fortunate to have my sons first..😊 they were born understanding girls it seems at times. Thanks very much for your kindness and supportive sharing..03/12/2016 #9 AnonymousAhhh, dear @Donna-Luisa Eversley, as a Mother of 2 daughters who are now in their 20's, let me say simply: I can relate! Both my girls were 'high-risk' teens and as a single Mom, it was almost the death of me! As Mothers, we have this immense, deep love for our children - we all want what's best for them. We have these visions of what that looks like. What I've learned is that 'vision' does not always align to our children's personalities. Not only do they have to learn to accept our imperfections but we must to learn to accept theirs! It took me a long time to let go of my vision. I no longer try to 'direct'. Now, I listen a lot more and give them support for their courage in 'coming into their own'. I am so happy to tell you that my relationship with my daughters is so much better now. I appreciate your honest sharing - us Moms must stick together!!! ❤️03/12/2016 #8 Donna-Luisa Eversley#4 @Lisa Gallagher thanks so much for sharing your experience ..I agree, my sons were a lot easier than my daughter . They seemed to understand rules were there to help in their lives. She is almost 20 now. I am looking forward to that day when were can have a better relationship...thanks for sharing hope... I appreciate your support..thanks 🐝🐝03/12/2016 #5 FancyJ London 🎶What an insightful heartfelt post. I have two teenagers and can sympathise I am always looking for advice from other Mother's. After my children lost there father the hardest thing in the world to face was when my son came to me and said: "Mom, I was going to take the easy way out. I decided to stay, because I knew if I killed myself you probably wouldn't be strong enough to take care of my sister." Those words choked me in a way I could never express deeply enough.03/12/2016 #4 Lisa GallagherWhat a great buzz from the heart and so honest @Donna-Luisa Eversley! You wrote, "I'm not sure if I can ever be the mother she wishes for, but I am the mom she has." I used to feel the same, is your daughter a teen now? I thought my daughter would alway find fault with me because I had tight rules and I wasn't a conformist. Many of her friends were allowed to do whatever they wanted and lacked rules. So, I think many of us that do enforce our rules are seen as the witches or the enemy by our girls in particular. My son never challenged me and his personality differed. I can attest that my daughter and I are best friends today. She actually talks about some of her own past behavior and tells me she fully understands why I made the rules I did and should have been stricter with her haha. Can we say, things I never knew about?? I don't want to know now either! I think things will work out in the end, it just takes time and reassurance that you're doing the best you know how out of love! When it comes from a place of love, that's all that matters.03/12/2016 #3 Franci Eugenia HoffmanAh, those, on or about, teenage years when we thought we were invincible and we had to be cool. Our own pressures and our peer pressures can cause a lot of confusion. If we don't understand the confusion, then we place the blame elsewhere. So, mom - tag you're it. I feel certain it's a phase that will pass and your daughter will come around. Immaturity can wear many faces and only time will determine when the next step is taken. We are all a work in progress and remembering your other post, we will never be complete. https://donnaluisawordslayer.wordpress.com/2016/12/01/just-thinking-out-loud-life-with-me-is-a-limited-time-edition/
