Comments22/10/2016 #3 Donna-Luisa Eversley@Nissar Ahamed...very Inspiring . I like the way you channel the things one likes, positive attributes and selecting a career path. Recently I've been speaking with my daughter...she spent a lot of her academic time in primary and high school on the sciences, and thought she wanted and should pursue medicine or chemistry type career, as she is quite good in subject areas. She started university and not long after realised she did not like it at all. Thankfully she caught this in time. She likes human resources, problem solving and negotiation...which she discovered by taking a break from studies.( Currently ). These decisions are not cast in stone, but selecting a career requires a lot of thought and understanding of oneself.

Comments25/10/2016 #29 Jackie PantalianoBrilliant! You've given me wonderful food for thought about my negative perception of Kim Kardashian. I agree with you completely about Hillary Clinton, and I love the comparison of Hugh Hefner never being judged negatively in the same way that female business leaders and politicians are.16/10/2016 #28 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsI loved your perspective @Donna-Luisa Eversley. Though I empathize with Kim's robbery experience I just can't find her 'business' as having a positive impact on society or the young women of today, which to me is just as harmful to women as anything Hugh Hefner has done. Just because it's women getting rich from the exposure doesn't change the negative stereotype is places on all women.
As for Hilary, that is one strong woman, of that there is no doubt, I'm just not sure she is Presidential material. But if I have to chose between her and DT, I'm Hilary all the way.14/10/2016 #25 David B. GrinbergBelated kudos on sharing that personal story @Donna-Luisa Eversley. I'm reminded of that old saying: what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. I think going through adversity and facing immense challenges -- while no fun at all -- does in fact strengthen people's character, determination and steadfastness.
I recall at the last town hall presidential debate, the last questioner asked each candidate to say something they admired about the other. Donald Trump sounded sincere, at least in this instance, when he praised Hillary for being a fighter and never giving up. I think all her past challenging life experiences helped to mold Hillary into the person she is today. And ditto that for most, if not all, people.
And while it's terrible what happened to KK in Paris, one would think she would have bodyguards to protect her in public when she flaunting very expensive jewelry while playing games on social media. But that's just my 2-cents.14/10/2016 #24 Anonymous#19 I must admit @Donna-Luisa Eversley I did see the buzz and thought it was going to be about politics which I try to avoid!
As quite a few bees have said which I will reiterate I just cannot imagine what must have been going through your and everyone else's minds, how frightening for you all. and what a really moving piece you have produced here on bebee...I take my hat off to you for a remarkable contribution.14/10/2016 #22 Mamen 🐝 DelgadoMy dear @Donna-Luisa Eversley, I confess I saw this Producer a couple of days ago but, as @Pascal Derrien has said before, I was so silly I didn't feel any engagement with the title neither with the two pictures on the top.
I simply can not imagine what you were through in that night you have described, as a mother I don´t feel strong enough to try to imagine it.
Your article is full of sensibleness and sobriety, as well as of emotion. The same emotion any human being can feel, because as you wisely say none is inmune or set apart from humanity in a life or death experience.
Thanks so much for tagging me. Love you, dear being. 💞14/10/2016 #21 debasish majumderwonderful post madam Donna-Luisa Eversley! absolutely stunning! i wonder, how state sometimes act as a male and sometimes as a female! we have seen number of states where female at the helm, but the character of state remain same. there is no absolute masculinity or feminism. still, i believe, female are more compassionate and caring, as they can only endow motherhood. however, lovely post madam. thank you very much for sharing the post.14/10/2016 #20 Laura MikolaitisExcellent piece, @Donna-Luisa Eversley. What a chilling recall of your experience. I can't even begin to imagine what it must have been like, but you paint a vivid picture that speaks volumes to your own faith, strength and resilience. I am sad to hear that you went through something so terrifying, but it seems in spite of it all you have found the grace within. You have crated and penned such a well-written piece here and opened eyes so that we can see beyond the media hype. It can be challenging to dissect the authenticity that is often overshadowed by the propaganda. In the end, both women are human beings - and as you have so eloquently pointed out - there's more than what meets the eye.
You have brought to light some interesting perspective with regard to both Kim K and Hillary Rodham-Clinton. While I may not necessarily agree with or be a fan of either, what I will openly acknowledge is their perseverance and resilience. It takes a great deal of tenacity to be a public figure and both women have demonstrated these traits under some dire and heated situations. And for that, I give them credit. It's not easy to be torn down and ridiculed at every turn but they fight back where some might never find the strength to get up and keep going.
Thank you Donna-Luisa for leading me to this.

I agree with Pascal in that this is the best article I have read all week. I can't imagine how you endured the robbery but so glad you did or I wouldn't be reading this 5 star read. I am not a fan of Kim Kardashian but give her credit for making herself into a multi-million dollar empire. Hillary is a smart and gutsy woman and has endured a lot, as well. She seems to have the ability to bounce back and ready for the next hurdle. Women have come a long way and are making great strides but we still have a rocky ride ahead of us. It takes time and patience - and endurance to make the world a better place. Bravo Donna-Luisa and buzz on.10/10/2016 #12 Dean OwenI cannot imagine the trauma of being held at gunpoint. How horrific. Kim Kardashian - I have no idea who she is and had no idea she had been robbed. I empathize with Hillary for the fact that she had to deal very publically with a cheating husband. I have never thought "if Hillary was a man" but I have thought if Michael Moore looked like Robert Redford, he'd probably be heralded as an American icon. Weird world we live in.....10/10/2016 #10 Donna-Luisa Eversley#4 @Vincent Andrew thank you for understanding us women 😉...you have had the privilege to be surrounded by many females and you get to protect and love and care for all our hormones! The robbery was awful. I try not to think about it, and I guess I have not really laid it to rest. The feel of the gun remains, and my son is 29 next month. I was crazy about safety and security after that..sleeping lightly, keeping my home locked tightly day and night. Not opening windows, being obsessed with locks...took almost twenty years for me to relax. When one is robbed like that the physical things lost are nothing, it is the way your personal safety was violated, that, is a loss hard to recover from. 🐝🌸

Comments08/09/2016 #19 Steven Marshall#18 A lot going on in that post, @Pamela 🐝 Williams! My only comment is that, in life, you tend to go where you're aiming. If you are dominant in aiming for the "T" in SWOT, then that's where you will go. My other comment is that I equate "Threat" with fear and all that fear provides is motivation to move away from the source of fear/threat. On the other hand, "Opportunities" provide a compelling direction toward something like a goal or a destination. That's why I think that all 4 qualities are equally important in the SWOT analysis.08/09/2016 #18 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsI have worked with some great, and i mean great, strategists. I learned a lot from them and their ability to see the big picture. I have used much of what I learned in other positions and what I find is I'm the 'T' projector in SWOT. Some thought of it as being a nay sayer but I have found exploring the threats in depth you are prepared (much like those A & B plans for your flight). My grandfather used to tell me that people start every job high; excited, driven. But every job had its rough spots. Knowing that and having a plan to deal with them can change your own outlook and the outlook for the company. My two cents! Enjoyed this read, very interesting!07/09/2016 #17 Steven Marshall@Laura Mikolaitis - MOST places I visit don't have a plan or else the plan they have is purely tactical or operational. I work within the hierarchy of answering the WHY first, the WHAT second, and the HOW last. In America, we are excellent at figuring out HOW to do things, but when I ask groups what is the expected outcome, I often get another HOW. The first 2 hours of a planning session with a new group is often spent teaching them how to think in the hierarchy above. My favorite analogy to get them thinking in this new way is one I came up with working with a car dealership; "We provide transportation, to enable people to go to work or play, through the sales and service of cars and trucks." Thanks for your comments and insights!06/09/2016 #16 Laura MikolaitisInteresting insight @Steven Marshall, thank you for sharing it. And to @Donna-Luisa Eversley, thank you for the shout out and pointing me to Steven's post. Steven, I agree with you that the only constant is change - and being able to adapt to it is a key component to being able to move forward - both professionally and personally. In my opinion, having a plan is always a good idea but I have been involved in many scenarios where there was no plan, and instead a spaghetti theory approach was applied; that is, throw it against the wall and see what sticks. Sometimes it worked and other times it failed. I can't help but wonder how the scenarios could have played out differently had a strategy been hatched. Thanks for the post!03/09/2016 #10 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDJust Inspiring and Motivational, and what a thorough presentation!

Comments27/04/2017 #76 Nicole Chardenet#75 Much agreed, Natalie. In the end we all have to get along with each other. Talking about privilege other than white messes with a lot of folks' entitled sense of victimhood. And of course, fighting racism doesn't mean just fighting *white* racism, but the racism within all of us.24/04/2017 #75 Natalie ChickeeNice perspective and it's nice to see that you will admit being of white privilege, not all whites think they are privileged by default. At the end of the day though we were all humans and we need to all learn how to harmoniously coexist. I've mentioned the idea to some other Native Canadians and Blacks from Detroit and stated last week that we are privileged and they hated the idea of that. No white people are the only ones privileged. If you can access university education and a medical care you are privileged. My mom is white, I was raised in white privilege I guess. When I see some minorities who have more than some whites I grew up with, the idea of what that means, the line of privilege gets seriously blurred. Brown people have a different experience than African Canadians, First Nations, Inuits (Native Americans/Canadians). It's interesting they(CBC) didn't give a voice to the so called brown/minorities who have been here living in Canada for a longer time vis a vis, this spoiled person perspective. Shedding a light to give a broader picture of what the real issues other minorities experience in Canada experience and what racism really means in Canada so it can be eradicated. They can learn to appreciate that their parents are probably paying top dollar for them to come to our schools, to access our education. Who is accessing what and why.04/04/2017 #72 Nicole Chardenet#71 Lyon, I'm not at all convinced that young lady's difficult roommate problem was any different from many other peoples'. The roommate was a bully, plain and simple, and whether the Pakistani girl's freedoms were curtailed is unknown - did she bow to the roommate's wishes or demands? Or did she say, "Screw you, I'll cook whatever I want, and BTW your cabbage stew stinks up the house so if we have a no-curry rule, we'll also have a no-cabbage rule"? I had a bullying roommate for a short period of time many years ago (she moved in shortly before I moved out, had nothing to do with her) and she was a bully to *everyone*, dictating who would do this and who would do that and assigning us chores. We were all, as I recall, white. Fact is, the world is full of a*holes, and they never need much of an excuse to be one.
I wonder if the Pakistani girl stood up to the roommate or whether she knuckled under like a good little conflict-avoidant girl. Women's psychology - how does it not serve us sometimes? Explain. Discuss. Debate. :)
Just because I'm white doesn't mean I can't comment on issues of people of colour. Just because someone is male doesn't mean they can't have valid opinions or criticisms of women and feminist issues. If it's okay to support someone who belongs to a group you don't belong to, then it's okay to critically analyze them or that group as well. This political correctness that dictates who can comment on this or that is just a subtle and often bullying way of shutting down opinions one doesn't like. It's time to challenge prevailing thinking.
That's a general comment, BTW, not aimed at you. I don't think you're trying to bully me, just offering your opinion. But it's something to think about. Does political correctness subtly bully others into offering non-standard opinions? Explain. Discuss. Debate. :)01/04/2017 #71 Lyon BraveI appreciate lots of things about you. One you are very bold and honest with your opinions and you are not afraid to tackle race issues that are not your own. I do think all people of color should discuss race issues. However, bullying alone can create server problems. You reported the girl is being denied freedom in her own house and facing a series of ignorant and racist comments. People should feel comfortable and understood in their own house. Cooking curry might be a part of her identity. Perhaps, you should consider that just because something is a lesser evil of hate doesn't make it acceptable. Humans don't always need to share their opinions. And truthfully, though it is your right to write about race issues you will never understand them because you are not a woman of color, you are not brown. However as a woman you are a minority and I hear you. I think many of your points are valid but don't confuse people who report harassment and racism as playing the victim. Victims are often silent. Advocates are often vocal. Please keep sharing and I mean no offense.14/02/2017 #70 Nicole Chardenet#69 Actually, Paul, it's 'negativity bias' and it's a by-product of our evolution, which wired us to always expect trouble (since it was usually just around the corner), constant imminent death (which was usually imminent just around the corner), and to be wary and fearful of anyone who was not of our tribe or not exactly like us (because they were often unfriendly and dangerous).
However, we're not slaves to evolution or our wired brains. We have the capacity to move beyond that and challenge ourselves. And yes, there's a lot of power in victimhood - it will probably be the subject of a future blog post. Watch for my post tomorrow on how "It's all your parents' fault!" (Maybe a bit of a pre-victimhodd-blog-post taste :)12/02/2017 #69 Paul JacksonWe are an imperfect species which only focus on the negative aspects of life, this is a by-product of sin.

I was also thinking about this post this morning. It's a quiet work day and I needed to think about stuff for my web-app-with-no-name.
So I got to cooking.
It's my father-in-law's 88th tomorrow, so I made his favs. I started with Jack Daniels infused orange marmalade. It will be served with homemade vanilla/Grand Marnier ice cream on puff pastry boats (now in the oven.)
I have a big-assed batch of basil tomato sauce simmering away to use in the lasagna/cannelloni/manicotti (I haven't decided which yet, but the pasta dough is ready)
I also made some tomato sherbert to use as ice cubes to keep the gazpacho cold. Did I mention the gazpacho?
My condo has waves of various aromas. The marmalade mixed with tomato was getting to me. I opened the windows.
That's when I saw Melissa, my neighbour. She was heading out.
She told me she couldn't stand the smells anymore. Not that they were bad, but that they were making her hungry. She was off to a Weight Watchers' meeting.
LOL08/09/2016 #59 Nicole Chardenet#55 WOW. I think I would have killed my kids (if I'd had any) if they referred to me as a 'white bitch'. What an awesome act, to move them to a whiter neighbourhood where they can learn to appreciate the other half of their DNA. You bring up a great point, which is that racism is ALWAYS wrong. Even when you're not white. 'Victimhood' isn't an excuse.08/09/2016 #57 Nicole Chardenet#52 Yes, and I very much appreciate everyone's support! It still amazes me how it drew little attention a few weeks ago when it was published (and I almost didn't for fear I would get flamed far and wide by the left) but then Paul and you and a few others found it and now it's got over 2,000 views! Thanks so much to all of you!08/09/2016 #56 Nicole Chardenet#50 You can come over to my apartment building and rant about all the curry smells you can find...along with fried fish and Goddess knows what else.

You can link to their profile but I'm not sure if they are notified (@Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín, how does the tag work in the body of the Producer text? Is it working yet or is that in this month's roll out of updates?) When you have time to answer Fede, could you tag Lyon?

Perhaps, @debasish majumder, boxes of bees were dropped off at two different places on the same day! I wonder how often this happens - and our two articles really don't have overlap - that is statistically significant. So interesting...#22 #26 #25 #23 https://www.bebee.com/producer/@margaret-aranda/sharp-check-in-dr-margaret-aranda-s-newbeez-be-a-bebee-producer31/08/2016 #32 Pamela 🐝 Williams#26 I read about the honey production in India. It does have a very beneficial side; bee populations are growing. If you have heard about Colony Collapse Disorder then you know that most of the world is seeing declines in bee populations. India could become the bee/honey capital of the world :-)

It represents the true life happenings of a child who takes on a Primary Caregiving role to a parent who has a chronic illness or disability. This topic is absolutely dramatic on several counts: pediatrics, psychology, responsibility, parenting, childhood, and so much more.

"Surely people today want to know now not three months down the line whether an aspect of social media works for them."
Yes many people do. That is because may want instant results BUT have little PATIENCE.
We are talking about social media with emphasis on SOCIAL.
Whether online or offline, we are social beings and in most situations it takes time to
Very few people after a first or second date are married the next week.
So too when we commence our social journey online, using social platforms, we need to be about Asking,
As well as
As I mention in point 8:
Social Media marketing is about building relationships through engagement and relationships take time.
That is why I recommend a minimum period of 90 days of significant social media activity to gauge reasonable results.
And that is why many small business people do not succeed in networking both offline and online.
They are impatient and are not prepared to put in the time and effort to engage, to build relationship to get the results they are looking for.08/06/2017 #31 John RylanceIn a climate of the need for instant access to information, communication, outcomes results etc., number 8 and your giving 90 days to assess the success of interaction rather surprising. Surely people today want to know now not three months down the line whether an aspect of social media works for them.30/05/2017 #28 Neville GauntLance isn't there only one reason? It's the same reason people fail - all boils down to attitude.
Because it's FREE business owners have been like bees around a honeypot! Facts are that few are making the digital world work for them, and few that make it work actually know why and so can't repeat it.29/05/2017 #27 Anne 🐝 Thornley-Brown, MBAIf one is operating in the B2B space, the main reason social media does not work is that there aren't enough decision makers active on these platforms. I think one way beBee can distinguish itself is by all of us working together to attract corporate executives and top journalists to the platform. This is something I want to work on. I had to take a break for health reasons but, hopefully, I can begin in a few weeks.31/01/2017 #23 Claire L Cardwell@Lance 🐝 Scoular - very well written post! I get much better results now from my blogs and posts on Social Media Platforms than I am from advertising on Google. I think that people are fed up with see adverts on the search pages, and those awful Adsense ads and pop up ads that are so prevalent. Establishing yourself as an expert within your field creates trust and I find the feedback from readers and potential clients invaluable. Have shared on the Marketing Hive and on LinkedIn.

Comments31/08/2016 #24 Cory Galbraith#23 Thanks for your comment @debasish majumder. I won't attempt to challenge Plato on what he said, but my conclusion in relating his words to today's circumstances, is that often in business, people use buzz phrases and language they do not fully understand themselves, in an attempt to impress other people. The point here is that clear communication should be the priority, not trying to impress others.30/08/2016 #23 debasish majumdernice insight Cory Galbraith. lovely elucidation. only thing i am bit confused is the last point, where you mentioned "SPEAK TO BE UNDERSTOOD." how could we eventually conclude that poet's utterances seldom be understood by themselves? is not it a deliberate effort to undermine one's acumen and virtually foil the entire essence of your post, where sense of humility being distorted?25/08/2016 #15 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#2 @David B. Grinberg, you are so right: Who can argue with Plato? #7 Mentoring students is a key concept in medicine, where the medical student always seeks approval from the Attending Physician, who is held in great respect.

"Excellence" is not a gift, but a skill that takes practice.
We do not act "rightly" because we are "excellent",
in fact we achieve "excellence" by acting "rightly".

Comments15/08/2016 #1 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD@Max Carter ~ so true! Let's add in there "A wise woman.... yes?" And just to note that plenty of famous people were not appreciated in their quest to be 'wise..' Many of whom did not get 'famous' until after they died. So, whenever someone gets upset at what we say (i.e., those who are spiritual/philosophical/'religious') I always pause. And when it boils down to it, leaders are here for the people, not for other leaders. So as long as we wake up To Serve, that is all I need before God. I'm not here to please any one. Only the poor and hungry. And I need to get better at that, always. Muaaah!
