Comments23/03/2017 #20 Pamela 🐝 Williams#14 Well, thanks Bill! I didn't see it so much as a movie review as just wanting to share a great movie experience and rant about the limited number of movies that focus on acting rather than violence and sex. Thanks for reading my friend! could use your supply chain brain trying to figure out some of the metrics I'm developing at my new job! It's exciting though, the best part is the design...even if it fails...it was all about the journey!23/03/2017 #18 Pamela 🐝 Williams#16 Agreed Aleta; what I've noticed most about the British actors is they have seem to 'grow' into themselves and gotten better with age. In a world so focused on the young and beautiful its wonderful to see these wonderfully talented actors take center stage! Pun intended :-)23/03/2017 #17 Pamela 🐝 Williams#11 Glad you enjoyed it Fatima! I'm going to find the 2nd movie of the Exotic Marigold! I saw Richard Gere was in it so it's a must see, but to be truthful I just have heard as much Buzz about that one LOL! We do just keep finding new ways to use Bee talk don't we!21/03/2017 #16 Aleta CurryLoved this essay!
I think a little sex and violence goes a long way, and these should only be included when essential to the story. Too many directors just throw them in, expecting them to carry the flick.
I feel the same way about special effects. If they're the star of the show, the show is lacking. It's like makeup, it's supposed to enhance, not smother.
I could write a book on British actors, so I'll just quit here!20/03/2017 #11 🐝 Fatima G. Williams@Pamela 🐝 Williams Such a brilliant list you put out here. I had so much fun watching The Exotic Marigold movie. And the trailer for The beautiful fantastic is fantastic A must watch. I watched a movie called " A dog's purpose" a few days ago after I had reading @Deb 🐝 Helfrich book . Loved it. Thanks for
the awesome movie review. 🤗19/03/2017 #6 Pamela 🐝 Williams#5 Thanks Gert! I almost chose La La Land but then decided on this film instead. Hopefully it will still be in the theater next weekend and I'll catch it then. It's been so chilly here lately I don't want to go anywhere else, tired of hanging around the house; so movies it is!19/03/2017 #4 Pamela 🐝 Williams#2 many of the same actors/actresses are in Calendar girls and an oldie but a goodie; Love Actually, which along with As Time Goes By, got me started on British film. There is a unlying vibe to their movies that are missing in American films. I think the closest might have been Eat, Pray, Love with Julia Roberts. I can't even describe what it is; it just is.

Comments30/01/2017 #2 Gordon Pye#1 It seems the common denominator of alleged Progressive Politics ( Either Left or Right ) is an unhealthy obsession with Animal Rights, perhaps in some subtle ploy to infer they care deeply about the rights of their fellow human beings.
Is anyone gormless enough to vote for Paul Nutttall to represent them as their MP. or are they being coerced to do so under menaces from their Housing Association and DWP Office managers, and perhaps you can't trust any politicians from Liverpool. I gave Nuttall all the ammo he needed to fight the Oldham East By-Election on Green Taxes and the Climate Scam but perhaps he deliberately lost to Debbie Abrams ?

Comments22/01/2017 #3 Donna-Luisa Eversley@Jim Taggart you are quite a brave man to take on the swing of irresponsible leadership which I fear will become a trend with an aftermath of damage to fix thereafter. Right now I think the USA is in crisis and will not be the great supporter of others as in the past. Lets see how this unfolds. Thanks for the e-book :-) I will be sure to let you know my thoughts after reading.16/01/2017 #2 Dean OwenAs a Londoner who was leaning toward the Brexit camp, I tend to agree with you. Plus the fact that Britain can now freely explore trade deals with India and other countries without constant nagging from French farmers, and let's face it, India and China represent a far bigger market than Europe. The U.K. has so much going for it. Great schools and universities, the arts, quality manufacturing, a strong financial services industry, universal healthcare, auto industry and F1... great article!

Comments28/06/2016 #11 Dale Masters#8 @Timothy Wall If you support any of them, you're supporting the central banking system. Want to be truly free? Get rid of the central banks by minting a coin double that of what your country owes + interest, enforce your payment (and theirs...with payment in gold bullion) with your military, charge the central bankers with treason (they collapse economies at whim)...and you're home free. There's a reason the first Presidents fought the establishment of a central bank...and it's why Truman later felt like a traitor for allowing one to be established.25/06/2016 #9 John ValledorHours after a majority of Britons voted, the sobering reality that is beginning to emerge is the collapse of elitism. Be it British or dare I say from the fat cats in Belgium. One only needs to travel to the heart of elitism--Brussels--to see just how wrong anti-sovereign policies have hurt many in Britain. For decades a plularity elected politicos promising to establish laws (economic, security, etc.) aimed at improving the lot for everyone but, in fact, have never truly followed thru on their promises. In reality, we've seen the rise of political ideology favoring a niche segment of society. Now politicos in the UK are waking up to the fact that a majority of the population has been ignored too long at their peril. This phenomena is equally bulging in the US as well. The media and political intelligentsia is in self-absorbed denial ignoring signs pointing to techtonic change in the status quo. There's even a popular name for it, "the echo chamber." Our society has taken a very sharp turn left when the default setting in the ignored majority remains centrist. As a sign of self preservation, look for the media elites to paint "populism" as toxic--especially when it is threatening the cushy, comfy bubble economy that has favored a few at the expense of the many. This phenomena will not stop with Brexit. Far from it, the majority of Britons have shown other equally frustrated majorities that the time of reckoning is here. Global cultural, socioeconomic resets can be painful. Strap in, lots of turbulence ahead.25/06/2016 #8 Timothy WallRegardless of the outcome... you still live in an Oligarchy, as does the USA etc. NOT a Democracy. One could have a revolution, and the same thing would happen eventually. Bribes are just too seductive for most people, legal or otherwise. If you really want to crush a government, stop buying from corporations, and ONLY buy locally made goods and services. There are obvious exceptions like pharmaceutical companies etc. I takes a Canadian/South African to flip the automobile and oil industry on it's ass. Elon Musk is the new "Environmental Entrepreneur", and it is these types that one should be supporting once the economy of scale comes into play.24/06/2016 #4 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDA great share, like @Vivian Chapman says, and why do we feel so powerless here in the USA?

- 24/06/2016Nigel Farage, the leader of the U.K. Independence Party, who has been a prominent member of the leave campaign, claimed victory, saying June 23 would become known as the U.K.'s "Independence Day" and should be declared a national holiday. Even with the vote for Brexit, the process of actually leaving the EU could take two years or more as a series of negotiations take place for how to disentangle the U.K. from the many EU structures.
- 24/06/2016Can someone please explain the possible implications of the UK leaving the European Union? cc: @David B. Grinberg
Comments25/06/2016 #8 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand Ambassador after reading your comment- the link that @David B. Grinberg added too, all I have to say is this is scary. As @Pamela 🐝 Williams noted we too, have become a Country of extremes and I prefer the middle. I fear the economic impact globally, stocks have already taken a plunge and this will affect many international businesses. I need more time to digest all the info- this is overwhelming. I thought I had a lot to write earlier but my mind needs time to take this all in.24/06/2016 #3 Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand AmbassadorThe general thinking is that many international corporations, notably those based in the U.S. and China, invest in U.K. operations partly so they can readily access the free-trade corridors the U.K. enjoys with the rest of the European Union. So since the leave camp won, many of those companies could see drastically reduced profits.
The sudden need to reset tons of global investment channels — against the background of the ambiguous and extended period of the U.K.'s exit negotiations — could have a freezing effect on the whole region.
"Negotiations on post-exit arrangements would likely be protracted, resulting in an extended period of heightened uncertainty that could weigh heavily on confidence and investment, all the while increasing financial market volatility," the IMF said in an April report. "A U.K. exit from Europe's single market would also likely disrupt and reduce mutual trade and financial flows, curtailing key benefits from economic cooperation and integration, such as those resulting from economies of scale and efficient specialization."
Depending on how you measure it, the EU as a whole ranges from the first to the third largest economy in the world. And in terms of trade, the bloc easily topped the U.S. and China in both imports and exports.
So a slowdown there would mean a global slowdown. One that could last months — if not years.
And here's why the fallout is global
Yeah, it does sound hyperbolic, but there are actually a couple arguments for why a British exit may hurt the rest of the globe.
In Europe, the EU could run into economic trouble for a couple of reasons. The lengthy and as-yet ambiguous exit negotiations could cripple investment, as mentioned above, but they could also lead to more exits. Nationalist groups across Europe will be watching the referendum closely to see if they can use the results into their advantage.
Elsewhere, the economic risks are best understood as a function of uncertainty. EU uncer24/06/2016 #2 David B. Grinberg@Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, thanks for tagging me.

Anger Lisa, that is where the conservatives have failed. They were so busy being conservative they forgot who hired them. Now we have millions of angry people around the world. I just listened to a statement by our Supreme Court on how Congress is failing as well. If they do not stop thinking more about their own personal interests and listen to the people, the U.S. is next to follow the path of anger. It doesn't help when the world feeds that anger by calling us idiots. Say things like America used to be the greatest nation. They are pricking the pride of a lot of people and not helping the situation at all. The UK should stand as an example that the power is with the people and their wellbeing should come first, not Wall Street, not Trade Agreements, not Corporations. As for all the commentaries: if you can't be helpful; shut up.
