Comments14/11/2016 #2 Ben PintoThank you @Lisa Gallagher. I really appreciate the share. I have since this put out a very serious article (with the exception of my usual way of trying to bring some happiness back in the world with a little humor at the end of the otherwise depressing piece) I tried to tag you and other but it wouldn't take my comment. I tried that 4 times and have given up for tonight. Unless you fee that Nine-Eleven and "9.1.1. Emergency" are merely a coincidence would you perhaps tag some people and share the it a few times. I am really frightened about what could happen exactly one month from now. I would love some feedback from some of our philosophers like yourself. I like beBee, but I am not very good at getting my stuff seen. #1

Comments25/10/2016 #3 Mohammed SultanJim Murry,you are absolutely right.Exposure to bebee home has the effect of creating readers awareness as they are more exposed to the title rather than the contents.Most of the readers would say "what is it" whether it's relevant or not..But when the contents are directed to specific hive you will not only enhance the reader's awareness but also arouse his or her interest 'saying "what of it".Here the buzz may have higher exposure and higher levels of readers share,

Comments16/10/2016 #17 Ben PintoDear David, I have the handicap of being an auditory reader which means that when I read I have to say every word in my mind's ear as opposed to the way most people read. Consequently everything social takes me three times as long. If I try skimming along I will mess things up. The amount of times that another's thought process goes off stream when reading is something I would gladly welcome if could read at a normal speed. I sometimes have to squeeze my eyelids tightly together during times of thinking. Other times I will look up and to the side to concentrate which is awkward when talking with someone.
#1616/10/2016 #16 David B. Grinberg#15 Unfortunately, I'm not a "tech guy" per se. Frankly, I'm a bit clueless when it comes to computer tech issues. Therefore, I should have read your "sweet honey" more closely before opening my big mouth. Thanks for your kind understanding, Ben, as I greatly value our online interaction. Plus, I never like to upset NYers, being that I used to be one myself!16/10/2016 #12 Ben PintoTo all, Just so we are clear, there are limitations to web addresses in the World Wide Web such as not allowing blank spaces. Many different marks whose 'computing' descriptions are more than one space in length. I find no fault with this or with any of the limitations that this causes social media channels to adopt in dealing with it.16/10/2016 #11 Ben Pinto@Javier beBee, @Teresa Gezze and @John White, MBA, David misunderstood the post as I am not suggesting in any way or form that the hive link naming on beBee is at all in need of anything as tiny as a tweak. If it were an issue I would have posted this to 'WANNABEE' or in the case of a complaint to 'GRIPE, both of whom everyone should be following.16/10/2016 #8 Donna-Luisa EversleyHahaha@Ben Pinto ...you my friend have a way of making me laugh at your brain teasers...

Comments23/09/2016 #22 Sara Jacobovici#20 It's perfectly OK @Randy Keho to "just say" and that's one of the points of this discussion; what we say and what words we use to say it. Using quotes that inspire us to develop our original ideas or support or reinforce our original perspectives is one way to just say it. Always glad to see your contributions to the discussion Randy.23/09/2016 #19 Sara Jacobovici#18 I would venture to say @Pascal Derrien, that it's about 50% of all. I can not deny that we started our life relating and communicating non-verbally. We then developed the words to utter and put down on stone, paper, screens, that would communicate and express our thoughts and feelings. I think without our non-verbal maternal language, we wouldn't be able to interpret words. What do you think?23/09/2016 #16 Chas Wyatt#15 @Sara Jacobovici, I thank you for tagging me, and although I love the song by Neil Young, "Words", I am actually more interested in the hive you started, "Tree of Life", and the reasons for that will become apparent at a later date. I was going to try and limit the hives I belong to, but, everytime I turn around there is some new hive that piques my interest for some reason, or another and I have already exceeded my self-imposed hive limitation. I have a lot on my plate right now with several unfinished projects, but, I appreciate your mention.22/09/2016 #10 Deb HelfrichPerhaps the real saying needs to be that CONTEXT is King. The internet is a virtual smorgasbord and it is up to each of us to be the curator of our own experiences and that starts with being aware of the nutrients of meaning and significance within what we partake of.
A fantastic idea, @Sara Jacobovici, to share what speaks to us and to contextualize why it does so in order to dive deeper into meaning.22/09/2016 #9 David B. GrinbergKudos on the new hive, Sara (which I've shared on three other hives). You cited one of my favorite Einstein quotes @Sara Jacobovici. The full quote reads (for those unfamiliar with it):
"Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."
cc: @Franci Eugenia Hoffman: a good feature for "Hive Talk"22/09/2016 #6 Aurorasa SimaI joined. Not having read the other comments yet a quick comment: I believe memes and to parts also quotes without self-written text, for instance on a site like twitter, have the meaning of the person who sees them only. The simplest example would be tweeting (when Bernie was still in the race) a critical meme of Clinton and winning 12 new Republican "friends". So I believe, yes, depending on the site or even on any site a quote or meme shared without context (supposed we say nobody analyzes the whole timeline) will be understood at the viewer´s discretion.
I just saw a SpongeBob identity theft 1-liner meme. A security expert will see a warning about identity theft, someone else will see a joke, a third might see a message that the poster is poor.22/09/2016 #4 Sara Jacobovici#2 Very thought provoking comment @Phillip Hubbell. I need to think about a couple of things. First, although I agree about the art of saying a great deal in a few words, I'm not sure that many words is necessarily a bad thing. Second, I think there is a distinction between complicating matters and complexities. Like I said, lots to think about. Thank you for your comment.

Comments17/06/2016 #25 Randy KehoAll Linkedin ever did for me was link me with people I already knew, once knew, or never wanted to know. I refuse to be a part of Facebook. I don't want to see everybody's vacation pictures. And, what or who I'm doing at the moment, is my own damn business. Why broadcast it? I use Twitter to be alerted to what the criminal element is up to in my neighborhood or to get an updated score of a ballgame. I've only tweeted twice. BeBee has allowed me to correspond with people from all over the world on subjects that are of mutual interest, both personal and professional, and the myriad of content has awoken my senses. It's simply amazing, as are you@Gary Sharpe.16/06/2016 #15 Qamar Ali KhanTremendous job @Gary Sharpe!

Comments14/06/2016 #15 Phil FriedmanOkay, you guys. Here's a story for you. Shortly after my wife and I sailed to the US from Canada, we took a side trip to Disney World. My wife is a Canadian, so when we wanted to see this movie there on China, we queued up politely., quite close to the door. Waited about 20 minutes. Finally, they opened the doors to let the crowd in, and everybody began streaming into the theater. But not my wife. Although just to one side of the door. she was transfixed as 500 people streamed in. Finally, I said to her, "Come on, let's go in, what are you waiting for?" And she replied, "Well, for someone to stop and let us into the line." Bingo! I will be joining this hive, for as I have said, Canada is my spiritual home.14/06/2016 #10 Pamela L. WilliamsWell all you Canucks, I think this is fabulous, Now, maybe you'll translate all that Canadian terminology and share it in the Cultures Around the World hive. I think the Canada hive is important because people relate "North America" to the U.S. and we should show the world the differences in our cultures. So tell the world how we differ!

Comments23/06/2016 #44 Charles David Upchurch@Ali Anani I will share this concept with Social Scientists. While you did not use these terms, beBee hives (since they are all open groups) could serve as research fishbowls.
The downside of such fishbowls is that the inhabitants may behave differently there from how they do in their natural environments.14/06/2016 #43 Ali Anani#41 OLA to your great comment Sara @Sara Jacobovici. This is fascinating writing "The awareness will be reflected in the explanation, not as a reaction but as the process of sensory to cognitive, feeling to thoughtful". I love your comment and you and Jean @Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMC got me thinking all day long. Your reference to the paradox, @Sara Palomino Vidal, is a great discovery for me and I hope to read your mind about it.14/06/2016 #42 Ali Anani#40 Jean @Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMC- your writing " I would add we should also observe what they observe in order to respond to their needs as a business would a customer.: is he culmination of my pleasure. You are spot on. In one of my posts I wrote "don't show bees the red eye" because bees don't see it. Yes, we need to do exactly what I quoted from your brilliant comment.14/06/2016 #41 Sara JacoboviciI have often said in many comments to your pieces @Ali Anani that my comment is based on what came up for me in the first read. Now I return to write a comment based on my third read. As you and others that have read my work know, I am sensory and paradox obsessed. I have found a sensory paradox in your Buzz Dr. Ali that deserves further exploration. You write, "Observation is more than just seeing and hearing as it includes all our senses. Reflections can be deceptive and we should be careful in "explaining" them." The challenge of this paradox is, as always, awareness; not only do we have to be aware of what we are observing through our different senses but that our observations are perceived in a very subjective way. The awareness will be reflected in the explanation, not as a reaction but as the process of sensory to cognitive, feeling to thoughtful. You also wrote,"Bees in the dark and they use other senses to observe each other." This reinforces that we can not afford cut ourselves off to receiving information based on an assumption that we are restricted. You again embed an important Call To Action in your work:" Sound businesses have a rare opportunity to observe, learn and adapt." OBSERVE, LEARN AND ADAPT - its acronym "OLA" , I hope, will be appreciated by our Spanish speaking co-hive habitants.14/06/2016 #40 Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMCThank you for another fascinating post, @Ali Anani. Not to mention the excellent lesson on bees. I wondered, as I read it, if bees see color. And so you encouraged me to discover whether they do. Turns out they do see certain colors. Plus scientists are very interested in what colors they see; and in fact have amassed more info on color bees see than any other living thing. We can relate this, as you do, to businesses and customers - to what they see and don't; and how to train them (so to speak) to see what we want them to see and buy. Should we use color to do this in the retail environment? It has definitely worked for me over my years in retail.
As one would guess bees see different colors than humans do. Which made me consider your statement ""We need to not disturb the bees by overly observing them. We need to observe what we observe and reflect upon". I would add we should also observe what they observe in order to respond to their needs as a business would a customer. And that would certainly ring true when it comes to adding content to 'hives' on beBee. You have definitely put me on the road to discovering more about bees and how they really can be related to business and life. Thank you once again Ali Anani for a most excellent post!14/06/2016 #29 debasish majumderGreat post sir Dr. @Ali Anani, Phd. your analogy of human spectrum is unique. though light travels faster than sound, but in case of human beings, it is sound which have immense impact, enabling to visualize matter, apparently not existing. phenomenal your rendition and the buzz you produce, capable to attract lot of bees to the hive, which truly mean business! thank you very much sir for sharing such lovely insightful post.14/06/2016 #27 Franci Eugenia HoffmanI feel more warmth in the comments on beBee and not the seemingly structured comments on LinkedIn. Not that the LI comments were insincere or not worthy, but it appears some are hesitant to speak freely. Relating to the hives, they are what we make them. It is up to us to create and support the hives of our choice. Where else can we be as creative as we want to be? I created Hive Talk to promote, not only the idea of hives, but individual hives as well. We need to support and promote hives that we prefer because otherwise they will lose their waggle.
