    So where do I start. As far as fairytale remakes go... I can petition for a movie. As your agent might get more than you expect ๐Ÿ˜€..so she was soo daft the chick read the letters wrong and was in a bubble for a while. 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.
    Quite a brilliant bit of fiction to read tonight. Thanks.. @jim able... Seems I'm not able to tag you ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    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 Brรผder Grimm and (DON, cover your ears) cynnnn...

    The pan-cakey happy ending, though ... "and they posted happily after". Isnยดt 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.

    "53 years ago, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasili Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain's order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and beginning a nuclear war between the superpowers.

    The US had been dropping depth charges near the submarine in an attempt to force it to surface, unaware it was carrying nuclear arms. The Soviet officers, who had lost radio contact with Moscow, concluded that World War 3 had begun, and 2 of the officers agreed to 'blast the warships out of the water'. Arkhipov refused to agree - unanimous consent of 3 officers was required - and thanks to him, we are here to talk about it."

    His story is finally being told in this PBS documentary, 'The Man who Saved the World':

In this particular post, my interest is in the visual perception; how many do we see and how do we define (as you say, what are the rules) what we see; whole matchsticks, partial matchsticks, reflection of matchsticks? Nice use of numbers to connect with the visual perception Milic. Thank you. And your photo recreation and the 2 perspectives are well done!

    Ken Boddie
    20/01/2017 #34 Ken Boddie
    The only reason I push the relevant button, Gert, is because I understand that others count or collect 'relevants' like medals or bonuses. I must admit to not really understanding what a higher number of 'relevants' achieves in terms of the life and exposure of the buzz. I prefer to show my appreciation of another bee's buzz by taking time to formulate a comment, as in this case, so that I may, hopefully, initiate a response and, in some cases, an on-line 'conversation'. I am, of course, referring to comments relating to the content of the buzz and indicating that the reader has read and understood the buzz. I am not referring to 'throw away' (albeit polite) comments such as "Great buzz" or "Thanks for sharing".

    For me, nothing indicates the success of a buzz more than a healthy series of meaningful comments, often resulting in interaction, not just between the buzz author and commenter, but between others who may wish to jump into the 'conversation'. It is easy to read or partially read a buzz, press 'relevant', then move on, but it takes more commitment to read in detail, show your understanding by sending the author an appropriate comment, and hopefully receive a respectful response.

    I respectively suggest that 'Relevants' are like mere remote pats on the back. They are easy to proffer and evaporate like ghosts. Respectful, logical, sometimes comical, or even poetic comments, however, are what ultimately cement affinity and create bonding between bees, resulting in our each forming our groups of Fbees (favourite bees).

    20/01/2017 #32 Harvey Lloyd
    Although i appreciate the goals of the relevant button i also think that a relevant, like or other quick clicks mean something different to each reader. On some occasions i think something is "relevant", meaning it is a present day understanding or opinion of current events. In affinity networking though, i believe, the relevant button also means agreement. I also think that the relevant button looses its meaning when folks run through comments or posts and just click everything.

    Maybe three buttons are needed. Read...Relevant...Agree. The writer may enjoy the number of relevant because they have defined what it means. This doesn't mean that each reader has the same definition.

    All that being said.........I do believe that if you have read something you should offer up a click on relevant to let the writer know it is or a comment that better expresses your thoughts.

    @Gert Scoltz.Your post is relevant in its simplicity and clarity .It entertains my thoughts and manipulates my perceptions as a reader.The word relevant has some degrees;very and somehow and your article is really very relevant, because you use little and simple words in a big way and you mean what you say as a reader,too. If the writer want to change something in the readers mind, he has to change his perception first.He needs several impressions in readers mind,too, in order to have a higher rate of recall for his content.We also need contents which stretch our thinking beyond the norm and stretch beBee platform beyond the reach of other platforms.I,then, will click relevant,not only because of your content,but also also because there's so much humor with it,which many people find it very relevant in you.

    Very good reminder @Gert Scholtz. I know there have been times I read, comment and then I'm quick to repost and forget to hit relevant. I actually will feel bad if I can't recall and I'm not able to find the post w/out going to the person's profile. I think another thing that is important, when we see people posting and they have zero relevant's yet the subject matter may be very interesting to people in certain hives... maybe it's just been missed? So I will read, possibly not comment but relevant the buzz and post it to hives I think are appropriate. People who do take a chance and produce their first buzz or two w/out interaction may not feel the desire to come back.

    #11 @Aleta Curry - From what I notice, commenting will bring a buzz to the top of the feed for all who follow the commenter - regardless of whether there is any tagging - which will generate a notification solely to whoever is mentioned.

    Same for relevanting - when you click it orange, it pops the buzz to the top of the feed for your followers.

    Basically the algorithm is based on time, and shows you stuff from who you follow and those hives you've joined and so seeing something means it was either shared into one of your hives or was published or commented/relevanted by someone who you follow.

    Since I never see one buzz twice during any given scroll session, that means that commenting and relevanting simultaneously is less efficient than commenting and relevanting separately. I keep meaning to test and/or ask about the time frame for a these to be considered separate, but I'd guess an hour apart or more would guarantee that you would pop the buzz to the top of the feed for your followers twice, or even more times if you keep on commenting repeatedly.....
    Franci๐ŸEugenia Hoffman
    20/01/2017 #17 Franci๐ŸEugenia Hoffman
    Relevant is a nice gesture but it doesn't let you know if your post was actually read. I feel engagement is the best way to communicate to the author that you read the piece, which can lead to discussions, and in turn, can lead to more discussions.
    If I click on relevant, I read the post. The majority of the time, I leave a comment. If it's a buzz sharing a musical video, then I click on relevant but I don't always leave a comment.
    Rod Loader

    CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit
    20/01/2017 #15 CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit
    The key takeaway for me in what you said about "relevant" is having our own standard of what we think is relevant. If our standards are wise then what we consider relevant is that wisdom, if we are simply reacting in terms of social convention, then that is simply spreading some love, and what is the harm in that? Ultimately how I hit the relevant button is because I have found actual relevance - and here the great missing word is AFFINITY.

    I have a strong affinity with much of what you write, if not all. For me affinity and relevant are a loop that feed of each other. Both of these are beBee terms, but they are terms that emanate within us. Each time I press the relevant button, I am pressing the affinity button also. I can't or at least won't separate the two. Over time that means less becomes more, and that is how we are in life - we are not just planet dwellers, or nation dwellers, or city dwellers, or neighbourhood dwellers - at each successive iteration of relevance we move closer to home - and then in that home is a heart and in that heart is both affinity and relevance.

    If my relevance is what others think is relevant then I give power to people to effect my heart, but if my heart is relevant I find the power in people by appreciating the relevance of their heart, then I not only know myself but I know you even more because I see you - or at least relevance as in your heart and that is the appreciation I send most, when I click on the relevance button. That is not about acknowledging the quality of the writing, but far more about acknowledging the quality of the human being here.

    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.

    How To Make Social Media Simple. No I'm Not CrazyHere's the thing. It isn't so much that Social Media is hard. It just takes a ton of time. Even that isn't accurate. It's more that we do the same thing several times every time we do anything at all.If it was a business process it would be...

    #8 They just might be related. LOL

    At the risk of being offensive, Candice is a HWAHOHS. (Hottie With A Head On Her Shoulders). She's a lot more than just a pretty face. I wonder how many people have underestimated her because of her looks? As the Father of another beautiful woman, that pisses me off.

    Our society tends to see beautiful women as strictly decorative. Yet, it was Heddy Lamarre who figured out frequency hopping. She may have won WW2 with that. At the very least she opened the Atlantic shipping lanes. Without her invention, there could have been no D-Day.

    Let's not even mention all the technologies that were built on its back.

    Since women have only been considered equal for about 50 years, I shudder to think what ideas, inventions, and concepts we missed out on.

    #6 Right now, beBee does not have RSS or ATOM functionality, so no, we can't autoload from beBee. It would be nice, though. I'd love to just write here, populate Twitter and my blog site, then cross-pollinate everwhere else.

    Sorry, the thought is bringing a tear to my eye. . . LOL

    I'm so impressed with you taking your time to create this process. I've gained a considerable amount of information and I am most appreciative. These are great tips and being able to relate them to my blog makes it clearer to me. Enjoy your Dominican cigar and your favorite beverage and take a break.

    Thanks for these tips, Paul, which are very helpful. It sounds like you've certainly streamlined your process. Kudos on that. Although some us may beg to differ about whether you're "not crazy" (lol). Okay, crazy good perhaps.
    Also, I'm holding you to your prior promise of using my Twitter account for the 2.0 version of myTweetPack.com - so thanks for that in advance. Lastly, I'm sharing this on three hives. Keep buzzing, my friend!
    PS -- and who's this @Candice ๐Ÿ Galek person you keep mentioning? She sounds like Superwoman. I noticed someone with the a similar/same name (I think) on the recent 2017 Forbes "30 under" 30" class of leading global Millennial entrepreneurs. Maybe they're related, you think?

    I just added RSS XRAY to Chrome but I'm still befuddled as to what it does? Will it work when writing a post using beBee producer? Ah, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian is already saying.. oh great.. I knew Lisa would read this and have 50 million questions LOL. Lots of info Paul and yes, THANK YOU!!

    #4 Don't bother, Candice. Set your IFTTT to scan your Twitter timeline for specific hashtags. I use #fb for FaceBook, #fbp for facebook pages, #tum for Tumblr, #li for LinkedIn, and #pin for Pinterest.

    When it finds one of these tags, it posts to that platform. Then I rotate the tags in myTweetPack.

    Make sense?

    Wow great post Paul.. We had a killer IFTTT syndication setup with 4 tiers and 2 rings. But it all started breaking down. It has been a big buggy lately! Have to rehire the coders to figure it all out. When you create multiple tiers and rings it really complicates things. =)

    #2 LOL, Right now, I'm kicking back with a Dominican cigar and 12-year-old single malt. Yes, the wife is out. I'll need to air the place out later. Or, maybe not, I'm kicking back in the garage.

    Show me a man who says he's not afraid of "the look" from the wife and I'll show you either a liar or a fool.

    And no, it never stops. I think I have adult-onset ADHD. The scotch is part of my planning routine. ;-)

    Seriously useful advice however on eliminating busy-ness from your social media world. Close

    Turn off the pc too! I've been telling my husband this for a long time. He knows it's true but is a type A (chronic thinker) until his brain/body finally give out. He never sleeps well, talks in his sleep and wakes easily. Do you wake easily @Kevin Pashuk View more
    Turn off the pc too! I've been telling my husband this for a long time. He knows it's true but is a type A (chronic thinker) until his brain/body finally give out. He never sleeps well, talks in his sleep and wakes easily. Do you wake easily @Kevin Pashuk? Lack of sleep on a continual basis can lead to physical ailments. My husband gets complex migraines and is now on a crap load of meds to keep them from appearing. I am no one to offer advice since I'm an insomniac but I can say one thing, my dog goes out late because of my schedule and my husband doesn't have to worry about the dog in the early am. Geez, we all need to get some sleep around here! Thanks for the links and reposting this. Close

    #4 Sounds like you hire smart people Paul... that was a great response. For the record, now I don't send emails out late at night, but am guilty of reading on my iPad in bed. I really should use my Kobo reader (like a Kindle) that doesn't have the bad little LEDs that affect sleep.

    @Kevin Pashuk Did you or do you still send employees e mails at 11pm at night. ? One of my employees once asked why did exactly that at 12, pm 1 am or sometimes 3 am . My reply.? "Well I do it because I don't sleep very well." His reply , " did you ever think you are keeping me awake by doing that.!" Great piece kevin, no off you go and get some sleep!!!

    #2 Thanks for the hints Devesh. I'm sure all the readers who suffer from insomnia will appreciate this.

    My issue is not that I don't get enough sleep, but enough of the right kind of sleep... that deep REM sleep where your body restores itself. I do like the advice about chewing.. it justifies my bedtime snack. :)

    Somethings in a combination worked for me. I don't know if they would work for you.

    A boss of mine suffered from.insomnia and liked me to help him at work , 5 months down I was having sleep problems , couldn't sleep more than 2 hrs in one go and 4 hrs in a day and I'm from a cold area, Delhi heat was exhausting.

    I was adviced to do these, chew anything for a long time while doing work in the evening, if I have anything chilled it should be 3 hrs before sleep.

    Do squats or push-ups when I want to sleep wait to calm down and do Yog Nidra ( Nidra means sleep) It's nothing simply imagining your body parts to bore yourself to sleep and once you get the hang of it, start imagining them as vital and in good shape.

    After 2 days, start having a lot of water during the day.

    It worked for me and then helped my old boss get some sleep.

    One of the books in my current reading list is @Melissa Hughes' new book - 'Happy Hour with Einstein'. I'm in Chapter 4 and there is already a lot of synergy in her book an Dr. Medina's book mentioned above.
