    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.

    Shared to the beBee Cheat Sheet Hive where we collect all helpful posts like this one.

    About your statement re: Ambassadors and their job description. That's simple. We don't have one. We were selected because we promote beBee and help other Bees find their footing (wings?). Basically, we just keep doing what we did in the first place.

    If the Bees-in-Chief take exception to what we do, they can delist us. It's their brand. It's their choice.

    We are not told what to do or when to do it. We may get an email pointing out a particularly good post. We can support it or not as we see fit. I tweet some out, I ignore others. At that point, it's my brand, my choice.

    The only "special" thing about Ambassadors that I can think of has nothing to do with beBee.

    I created a Twitter account, @beBeeEmbassy where I collect and tweet Ambassadors' posts. It's just my way of furthering the cause using some excess capacity at https://www.myTweetPack.com

    The worst thing about being an ambassador is having to turn the other cheek when some T$%*$^*&% starts screaming, "BIAS!!!"

    To them I'd like to say . . .

    Are ambassadors biased? Really? You need to point it out? No poop, Sherlock. Of course, we're biased...if we didn't like and support beBee they wouldn't want us as ambassadors and we wouldn't want to be their ambassadors.

    Being an advertising guy myself, I thought the bull was commissioned by Merrill Lynch since it looks like a three dimensional representation of their corporate symbol. And the history of it is interesting. But, to my artistic eye, the statement being made by the fearless girl in opposition to the charging bull is a hundred times more powerful and, these days, relevant. To me the bull makes as much of a statement about male dominance in the world as it does anything else. I find this to be somewhat reprehensible and overtly sexist. Adding the fearless girl takes a great deal of the curse off the what the bull represents as a symbol. And it tells the world (IMHO) a much more positive story. Life is not a pissing contest, and too many men see it that way. Women are every but as powerful as men in just about every field of endeavor in which they are allowed to compete fairly. As a creative person, I saw the addition of the fearless girl to this overtly sexist symbol as a very positive one. And one that says something very honest to a world that I feel is in a state of inabalance at the moment.

    It is telling, @Chris Alexander, that one sculpture was guerrilla art and the other was commissioned. I don't know if this is symbolic or not, but it does tend to point out the difference between the entrepreneur and something paid for by a big investment institution. If that's the symbolism intended, then both pieces serve their purpose. If it's to show the strength of women in the investment community, it falls a bit flat if you know the history. That Di Modico not only paid for his sculpture with his own money and still owns it, while the other was commissioned tells an interesting story about gender equality if not capitalism.

    Thanks for the history lesson. I did not know the provenance of that bull statue and that actually changes my opinion on the issue. Initially, I sided with the artist. Putting a little girl or a little boy or a grown man or a grown woman or a Mini Cooper or anything else in front of the bull creates a context and a narrative entirely different from what the artist intended. But, in my opinion, a guerilla artist has no grounds to lodge a complaint when they get "guerillaed." If you take it upon yourself to drop 7000 pounds of your artistic vision onto a public space, you're not in a position to cry foul...especially about a sanctioned art installation.

    The bull statue is a reality and so is the fearless girl statue. Both can be used to represent the good and the bad.
