    @Gerald Hecht shared a book in one of his buzzes called Capture by David A. Kessler - I have this marked down as a future read. One of my earliest memories was the assassination of Robert Kennedy. I was 7 years old and my father was painting the front room of our house in London, England. A small black and white was on sitting on a draw that I was looking up towards, when I felt a great disturbance run through me. I could not understand the news report but I instinctively knew this was something terrible - about 10 years ago I got a chance to visit Robert Kennedy's grave in Washington and was surprised to find only a small wooden cross, among monuments and white gravestones of Arlington Cemetery.

    #6 @CityVP Manjit Thank you for your kind mention here, amidst this interesting flow that @Gerald Hecht has put forth very valid points and queries. Our thoughts can make or break us in every now.. and our life seems like a hell or a blessing in the way our thoughts unfold . Every life has a unique purpose and a perseveres on with the thoughts to fulfill its being . A transition in thoughts is expansive phenomenona .It courses on even in attempted conquering of thoughts through control or manipulation of its meanderings into an intentional channeling in consciousness.
    Transcending thoughts is a choice as thoughts come and go ..the patterns we choose to create with , through and in them makes one consciously or subconsciously a sculptor of ones life ... and through every exercise of such a choice we leave a mark in time. That said yet, when we choose to make our presence felt and how we emerge will all figure out along the way in the strength of an interconnectedness of thoughts in interdependence as seen here .:)

    #17 Even if freedom is a concept, Nelson Mandela did write a book called the "Long Walk to Freedom" and sometimes that is what life gives to people. I am one of the lucky one's, which is why I continue to bring up the same song by Phil Collins again and again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qt2mbGP6vFI I do not have any conception of suffering or addiction - my life has been 50+ years of uninterrupted bliss - don't ask me how and it is strange how life emerges so differently. With you and Gerald, Margaret believe me when I say that you are teaching me. In a world where everyone has a story my crisis story is losing a library card, and even though I was knifed in 1991 in a mugging, it did not hurt, and I was treated like a rock star for the next six weeks. Guardian angels or the mystical, I have no idea why life pans out as it does, but I know it has.

    #23 @CityVP Manjit Kessler was a classmate of David Foster Wallace at Amhurst...with his family and friends support the book, elliptically, uses a "Psychiatric/Spiritual Autopsy"..throughout, as a point of reference (as well as tribute in unexpected way)...it's tough stuff in parts; but So very worth the preserverence...it also is precient regarding the "geopolitical mess", in the two or three months since its release...the damage that allowing "mindfulness" into the lay lexicon will cause...

    #12 @Gerald Hecht: Aren't 'mystical' and 'magical' both attributions applied to the higher theory of spirituality? That "rise" of the fourth dimension where we are immortal? Well, I should preface by saying that I had a Near-Death Experience and went to heaven's steps of those great doors....and ever since I came back, everything is different. Too many stories to tell on that one, but.....it was an elevation of consciousness with just thoughts; absence of the body left room for purity of the spirit to live differently. I can't quite explain it now. But I remember.

I think Joel's idea is absolutely brilliant - and surely would prevent stale enthusiasm. @Dean Owen is spot on with keeping our Ambassadors aligned with the brand. I also like what Kevin says about the Super Bees out there!

    Gracias para todo el mundo quien trbajan en hagar beBee tanto magnífico! @Javier beBee, hay una falta pequeño en tu traduccion inglés aqui....ecribes "We much appreciate your suggestions and your critics help us to improve." En inglés es differente de español: palabra 'criticos' en español puedes significar ó las ideas, ó las personas, ellas. En inglés, "critics" es todavia las personas (con significa un poco mal) y "critiques" (que ven de lengua frances) es solamente las ideas. In general, however, your written English is very good, Javier. As you can see, my writing, in Spanish, is not nearly as good as your writing in English. My suggestion, therefore, is to edit this article to this: "We much appreciate your suggestions and your critiques help us to improve."

    #7 Cool, for the first time in my life I actually know where Route 66 starts and ends and also learned today the actual significance of Highway 61 in terms of its musical pedigree. There is a whole lot of history in all that, even for a hooligan like me who was born in Britain and was informed more by the punk rock movement that the Ramones inspired in England - where even Billy Bragg wrote a song about trunk road A13 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QO_CT3mcKrM - I do know this not anywhere close to the magic and gravitas of songs about Route 66 or Highway 61.

    There was Jim Morrison, there was Janice Joplin and there was Jimi Hendrix, so thankfully Robert Zimmerman did not call himself "Job". Now Bob Dylan gets to out live John Lennon, Michael Jackson, David Bowie and Prince and even Elvis Presley (here I can hear the millennials thinking who dat?) - but this is not what us Babyboomers demand, we need our icons to be a James Dean or Marilyn Munroe, bigger than life and six feet under. Now the burning question is - Was Billy Joel right? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9o8aryIEuaY BTW keep up the emoji's - ever since David Beckham, the metro-sexual man is hip and who wants to be classified with the cold-as-ice cold blooded baby boomers. Crapzies I don't have emoji's on my laptop - just as my babyboomer granite expression whines, why did Gerard double up on that Islamic emoji? My emoji is still a full-stop.

    #8 Dear Mohamed follow the money, and see how organizations are just now waking up to the reality of action learning and while academic institutions today have become enamored by corporations, this thinking has been around 50 years. Thus it takes 50 years for common sense to permeate through the current economic system https://www.itapintl.com/about-us/articles/action-learning-in-a-nutshell - Mohamed I do not have 50 years, neither does any other Bee, when the opportunity is ripe right now and when @Juan Imaz will think about this opportunity, suddenly BeBee's idea of affinity relationships reaches into a new stratosphere. This knowledge is not some brilliant mind in the hear and now - and I am not going to apply 1960's Counter Culture thinking to drive change - we in the West are re-living the 60's turmoil, when we need 21st Century actions. We do not need any more platitudes, for education is all around us, except deeply within us and yet we still need permission to explore - because HMV still rules - his Masters Voice continues to depend on a few appointed experts, instead all the heartbeats of affinity, which beats and beats and place your hand on your own heart and you will hear education.

    #9 Dear @Anees Zaidi the day we do not have to tip-toe on egg-shells within academic institutions is the day when academic institutions become embodiment of education rather than reflections of egotistical politics and special interest constituencies. Who is going to break through those closed-minded ranks depends on the system being changed outside-in. On the outside we are exposed to the cutting edge, but the insides of institutions are always years behind and then these slow-changing politico's take pride in making the slightest modicum of change, when we had made all those changes long before them. We are therefore the actual leaders of education, and not the institutionalized, for they are merely playing catch up as our freedom to learn externally advances and we discover learning is not a domain of the captive class..

    #9 Nice comment brother @Anees Zaidi, Where does knowledge come from? What is intelligence without generating knowledge? is knowledge related to our communication ability ?
    Anees Zaidi
    09/07/2016 #9 Anees Zaidi
    #7 Excellent thought @CityVP Manjit. Knowledge without intelligence is of no use. Knowledge per se is of no help. Unfortunately our academic institutions are imparting / transferring knowledge only. They failed to help translate this knowledge into intelligence. Infinite learning is good and healthy but to be of real worth it must lead to intelligence. I conform to your saying.

    #5 Yes @Mohamed Amroussi learning is a lifetime activity and therefore continuous in that regard, but it must have ends that allow it to sleep, because new learning is that fresh burst of perspective, of that moment when something entirely new emerges in the field of our vision, when an idea ignites in our mind that was never there before - and then it builds into something, perhaps even into a life of its own. Learning where the mind is full is simply fat, it is an obesity of knowledge but learning that leads to intelligence, which is true education, that is the mobius strip.

    #1 Dear Irene, life can now become a university of our own making, so imagine the network effects across the globe seeing education as a creation of a greater home rather than the traditional treatment of labour. We are truly educated when we are open to the affinity of our own learning, where language and nationality no longer is a barrier or a creator of more divisions that separate us from a great abundance of wisdom. We keep looking for truth outside of ourselves which then turns into fear and not into love. How can we show anyone this education when it is solely our own? I cannot make you any wiser within than what you choose. We have the whole history of thought in our hands, this evolution requires us to unleash our own DNA - a mental not physical evolution, which is the only essential difference between what is human and animal.

    #9 Dear Pamela, with the trolls I simply say good doggie, pat the troll on the head and tell them to fetch the bone, with spammers, Gerald has the right idea, to turn them into comedy hour. When someone is laughing at them, they won't want to sell us stuff, and when we don't give them reason to get our nerves excited, they will go do their poop somewhere else. This particular guy was selling investments in Blue Energy - and in reality, I am wrong to turn that into a Viagra joke, when clearly I have misunderstood, that Blue Energy should be the new euphemism for porn. Even though even this apparently is another kind of urban myth http://knowledgenuts.com/2014/03/05/betamax-didnt-lose-to-vhs-because-of-adult-films/

    I received a following notification from this guy and check out his profile. Something didn't click so I did an internet search. Face it right but I think the profile was built from a photo off the internet. I didn't return the follow. Especially because the profile straight out says they are looking for a individual or company and you don't really need to do anything. I'm all for doing nothing, but it was a red flag of; this definitely illegal or a scam.

    Long distance runners see races and HM and FM as a social events even though you are alone in the effort there is almost a mystical communion between all runners I run on my own mainly but see races as a disco for runners I am pretty sure your little girl was proud to have you around , my 10 year old little man did his first 5k race with me the other day when he raised money for a friend who cerebral palsy but one day he will be faster than me and maybe we will do a marathon together.....it is true that you were you are alone but rarely lonely..... :-)

    Another one that I 'discovered' (a looooong time ago) while working in video: "Edit to the music." Sound provides continuity. Present a random series of images. Play music. Any music. Your audience will insist that the sound and images "go together". We find the pattern. Or make one up. There's a high correlation between intelligence and paranoia.

    @John Vaughan this is good stuff, FWIW, when I'm teaching Sensation and Perception --I've found a couple of sure fire demos, that are funcational: 1) bring in a virus laden Windows desktop and randomly pick a student to retrieve a website for me that is relevant to the the class; projecting it on screen; as the pop ups begin there relentless assault, I switch the projection to the volunteer who is behaving frantically, with all "their might" to move Windows that "are in front of" and therefore blocking, the relevant window which somewhere "behind the others" --somewhere "way in back"... The rest of the class begins to giggle, quietly at first...as they observe the body language!
    Then I stop the madness, and Tao the monitor with my knuckles, "knocking on the door"...and ask the sweating frantic student can any thing really be in "front of" or behind" anything else
    "In there?'" Can there even be an "in there?"
    2) same idea but with a first person shooter game...projecting the player's "body English" as they try to look around a boulder for the enemy!

    No lecture needed that day

    @Gerald Hecht You're welcome. I appreciate and share your observations regarding my own profile.

Planning to step into the Hasso PIattner Institute of Design Thinking (d.school) as a next step. More to come.

    @Pamela L. Williams our agents were, in fact, able to obtain the actual surveillance photo from the writers summit held on July 4th. I am so stunned (not so much from the photographic conspiracy) as from the fact there is a riot outside my window here in Baton Rouge from a cold blooded police shooting earlier, and it's loud...
    This may be my final insipid post...I hope that the fact that the camera is considered innocuous may exonerate our agents for collecting photographic evidence without a warrant

    #11 @Deb Helfrich in case I'm not answering the right question... I don't want to try to come close to spelling the enzymes on a phone with this interface, nor the degradation pathways, there are several (homovanillic acid on down is the biggie I guess) . Again (in haste and guessing) what it your talking about...a big problem with pushing the catecholamine system beyond the physiological and into the pharmacological is homocysteine levels and neurotoxicity becomes (as if weren't bad enough already) a positive feedback loop, you also start to get Dopamine Reuptake Transporters (DAT) --(and I know dat I got a PhD in dat, lol) will start recycling and releasing Norepinephrine from remote locations that have survived COMT and MAO "sharks" and yo get dopamergic neurons releasing norepinephrine VESICULARLY with arriving action potentials and that's bad...let me read what you guys were talking about in case it has nothing to do with what I guessed.

    #11 Resveratrol isn't very bio-available, doesn't last very long, pterostilbene is orders of magnitude more effective.

    08/07/2016 #12 Gerald Hecht
    #11 @Deb Helfrich a sorry I didn't catch the start of this ...but I guessing from the context a thingie pertaining to metabolic catecholamine synthesis pathway: You can start with l-Phenylethlamine (DO NOT ATTEMPT IF YOU HAVE PKU!!!) -->l-tyrosine---> l-DOPA ( in SUBSTANTIA NIGRA That's as far as it goes under physiological conditions ) ---> Norepinephrine (as far as it goes in the loecus coeruleus) ---> epinephrine.

    Thanks for the tip @Neal Rauhauser & this study @Jeremy Kossen. Resveratrol is on our list of things to try, but the bio-availability was my biggest concern - this paper is very interesting in that the biosynthesis pathway listed for these 2 also start with tyrosine & phenylalanine as does dopamine..... @Gerald Hecht since we need to keep you off the streets what say you about this curious fact?

    @Gary Sharpe have you ever tried pterostilbene? I got some a few months ago, I personally reacted badly to it, but my insides are one of a kind and my neurological trouble is digestive. Based on my reading it looks like it could be good for Parkinson's patients and it's not at all expensive - something like $15 for a month's supply.
