Comments20/11/2017 #4 Lisa VanderburgFascinating buzz @Geoff Hudson-Searle, and terrifying! The trouble with AI is the second letter, meaning (in theory) it'll learn. Who will it learn from? Us. That's fine is one's 'beyond reproach' but now for the rest of us, I suspect. It's crazy that people have to use dating sites at 7.6 billion, but maybe we're just no longer happy with ourselves? Maybe bots are what most want, but it's a 'be careful what you wish for' kinda thing.
Totally enjoyed the read though; I remember feeling sorry for the bot in Bladerunner - the one that found out she wasn't human.20/11/2017 #2 Randall BurnsInteresting read @Geoff Hudson-Searle but I am skeptical as to the time frame that you discuss. @Phil Friedman posted an article almost a week ago, https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/artificial-un-intelligence along these lines but from a very different perspective. granted it's ALL conjecture at this point but it does make one think...

Comments19/11/2017 #31 Robert CormackSeems like you're in good company, @Paul Walters, or bad company, depending on what sort of positive reinforcement you want. Sounds like your bank manager is the "good guy" right now. I never had a habit as much as a strategy. For years, I only smoked when I reached an impasse in my writing (you know how that happens in advertising). With books, the impasses were further apart, so it might only constitute 8 cigarettes a day. Once I stopped writing for the day, I never even thought about cigarettes. Last week, I stopped for good (shouldn't say that, should I?). What I was dealing with wasn't nicotine cravings. I simply didn't know how else to "take that break." I was used to going outside, lighting up, simplifying the problem and..bingo, bango, THE ANSWER!!! Check your habits. For many people that's what they have to traverse, not nicotine cravings. Oh, and I launched The Last Pack, smoking cessation system in 1990. We were all still smoking—including the client. I loved the Age of Hypocrites.19/11/2017 #30 Lisa Vanderburg#28 Great advise @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher 'dont admit youve quit until a good month or so passes because the pressure is that much stronger..'
Like you, I vape with 0 nicotine now. But on my last (and bleedin' FINAL) quit I said to my hubby who stopped cold turkey 10 years prior, 'I'm NOT saying I quit for good again...I'm quitting TODAY'. That ball-busting 'promise' will not help you at all @Paul Walters! IMHO you sorta have to sneak up on that puppy.........19/11/2017 #29 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#3 I agree, e cigs are great and they dont burn so a person isnt in the habit of chronic puffing either. I get 0 nicotine, started much higher. Need to find a flavor that works for you too. I always keep it with me in case I get the strong urge to smoke and I still do get urges after 5 years!19/11/2017 #28 Lisa 🐝 GallagherOh, I really wish you luck @Paul Walters! I smoked for years. I began when there were no stigmas or major warnings. More people smoked tham didnt. I really wanted to quit in the worst way when I hit my 40's, but the addiction is much stronger than common sense. My Dr. compares a smoking addiction to crack. 5 years ago I developed pneumonia and I didnt crave or pick up a cigarette for over 2 weeks because I was so sick. I purchased vaping products, and began using them. It will be 5 years for me in December since I smoked. You've got this! One suggestion, dont admit youve quit until a good month or so passes because the pressure is that much stronger when you admit knowing it will please those you love. Once I was sure I wasnt going back to them I told my family. I really do wish you the best, I understand how hard it is!19/11/2017 #24 Randall Burns@Paul Walters there is a book by Allen Carr called "The Easy Way to Quit Smoking", (reminds me I need to pull it off the bookshelf), that actually helped me a couple of years ago and of all the books I've read on the subject , (yes there's been a few), I think this one is the best. Easy, straightforward read, try it in conjunction with anything else that you do.
Good Luck Buddy, keep us posted19/11/2017 #23 Ken BoddieThank you, Pak Paul, for your years of smoker’s contribution to our roads, infrastructure and hospitals here in Oz. Now, if you really must quit, then why not try pipe tobacco, but not in a pipe. If you roll your own with Dunhill 965 either your lungs will turn into a steamship or you’ll be cured for life. And there again there’s always the local Indo rokok kretek (clove cigarettes), affectionately called “goddam garam” by non-smoking foreigners ..... almost guaranteed to have the same effect.18/11/2017 #22 Renée 🐝 CormierDear Paul,
My friend, you need to get a job in Canada. Like Australia, smoking is banned pretty well everywhere. The best part, is that in the winter, when it is -20 degrees Celsius, and the wind is cutting your forehead in half, your craving subsides considerably. :)
Alternatively, perhaps you need to make a mental shift. Try not thinking about quitting smoking because that implies that you are giving up something important to you. Re-position your thinking so that you identify yourself as a non-smoker rather than a person who is trying to quit. Trying? There's no commitment to change when you are "trying". @Paul Walters, as soon as you decide that you are a non smoker, you will become one.
Best of luck,
Your friend, Pollyanna18/11/2017 #17 Randall BurnsWell Bravo to you @Paul Walters for "coming out of the closet", it is a tough one that I'm dealing with as well. Believe it or not I'm on Champix right now, (@Paul "Pablo" Croubalian will be interested in this), the first thing your doctor is going to ask you is, "are you depressed? do you have suicidal tendencies? etc." Why? Because the Champix will give you the most intense, vivid dreams, absolutely wild which are very disconcerting for some people and if you're in a "negative" state of mind can make things worse. I have no problems with it and find it actually quite entertaining.
I notice a decrease in craving as well but the bottom line is it's the psychological factor that will dictate whether you quit or not, yes "willpower", Champix is not "The silver bullet" but it can help, (I'm still smoking but less, I'm in a "re-group and re-organize" phase and will try again in earnest in a few weeks)
Good luck Buddy! keep us posted18/11/2017 #16 Cyndi wilkinsI'm rootin' for ya @Paul Walters...Brutal habit to quit...I was a smoker for well over 30 years and quit cold turkey when my daughter was born...But that addictive behavior, like all others, never completely leaves you...I fell right back into it while dealing with the recent loss of my dad...a coping mechanism I had employed for many years to calm my nerves...
Try as I might to stop the cravings...my inner 'voldemort' kept hissing at me with a big 'F Off' every time I tried to reason with it...It took getting violently ill recently to kick the habit once again...I hope you don't have to go there;-)18/11/2017 #15 Jim Cody 🐝 Brand AmbassadorIt’s sad but true. The only way anyone can kick the habit is to have the willpower. Otherwise all you do by trying all the standard means to quit is wasting your money. Until one decideds they want to quit it is a lost cause.
Nicotine, the primary psychoactive chemical in tobacco and therefore cigarettes, is very addictive.About half of cigarette smokers die of tobacco-related disease and lose on average 14 years of life.
But all of that said doesn’t sole anything.
I occasionally enjoy a good cigar.18/11/2017 #14 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsWould never unfollow you. I'm off again, on again myself. Right now I'm on. A sibling stopped with Chantix and said it was easier but still took willpower as the whole hand to mouth actions were as much of an addiction. She tended to replace it with a fork and gained 10 lbs quickly. Lollipops were my replacement but in a professional setting you looked a bit silly! 📍📍📍📍📍📍📍📍📍📍📍📍📍18/11/2017 #13 Lisa VanderburgDang, @Paul Walters...I'm with @Ian Weinberg; hate to tell ya we're all gonna die!! Puff away - I do, on my vape - no nicotine now. My sister & BFF died from it 2005; not from her terminal NSCLC which was only diagnosed at stage 4, but because she fell asleep outside in the cold (having a fag; oxygen inside) during the night on my watch - I got to her 45 mins after, she got the final infection. After that I finally quit. We'd both done the Champix thing - it really works!
Unless you start again.
People judge on what they see (or smell). They should get the plank outta their own eye because we all fall short :)

Comments13/11/2017 #32 Ian Weinberg#30 Thanks for that Deas. Indeed I believe that we're messing with enough 'earthly' systems that pain for mankind is sure to follow. The current weather upheaval is just the beginning. Famine, lack of potable water and disease are also well underway. For in addition to our disrespect for each other and for the planet, is over-population. This planet just can't support the 7billion and counting. So inevitably and whatever it takes, numbers have to come down and will surely come down.13/11/2017 #30 Deas PlantHi, Ian W.
I agree totally. I would even go so far as to say that we don't DESERVE to be able to populate other worlds until we learn to look after this one.
How-wevver, I also have a different slant on the possible eventual outcomes. I have maintained for a long time now that Mother earth is a BIG girl and well able to look after herself. If she gets titred of us noisy, messy fighting human beings, she is quite capable of shaking us off like a bunch of pesky flies and starting all over again, possibly without the by then demonstrably 'failed experiment' of humanity.
Let us hope that human-kind awakes in time to prevent such a result - - - and then begin to collectively work toward preventing it from becoming necessary.
Just my 0.02.
You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.12/11/2017 #29 Cyndi wilkins#28 Unfortunately my dear friend...governments feed large corporations to suppress the technological advances that currently exist as free energy propulsion systems in order to feed their own agenda of militarizing an entire planet with 'space based' weapons and the constant threat of war with foreign invaders.
This goes far beyond plastic food containers...although the FDA is a huge player in all the secrecy too...What's the best way to control a species?? Keep em' sick and scared...There won't be a future generation without a planet to live on.
The most effective thing we can do is concentrate on cultivating our own physical and emotional well-being and teach our children to do the same...Respecting Mother Nature as you would your own Mother...and having reverence for all of life. What we 'see' is a lie...what we 'feel' is truth.12/11/2017 #28 🐝 Fatima G. Williams#27 @Cyndi wilkins I must have been 6 when this girl gave that speech in 1992, I had no idea then I had the responsibility of protecting my environment nor did my teachers lead by example! Change is a very difficult but ACHIEVABLE ONLY with practice. And if governments stop feeding in large corporations and if they stop giving them tax exempts from so many things they do to destroy our earth we may stand a chance! A global movement or a Strike of I won't use plastic packed containers, food item, snacks etc may do a thing or two!12/11/2017 #27 Cyndi wilkins#26 You are absolutely spot on @🐝 Fatima G. Williams...change is a very difficult but ACHIEVABLE transition to make if we fine tune our thoughts here in the present to consider the consequences of our decisions and actions and the impact they have on not only our immediate future but that of many generations to come...That is if we haven't destroyed everything by then:-(12/11/2017 #26 🐝 Fatima G. Williams@Ian Weinberg The only thing I can say, is tell me about it Whiff!
In the below video 12-yr old Severn Cullis-Suzuki's gives a speech to the UN in 1992 and today’s youth give the ECO speech again in this video compilation, 25 years later! NOTHING HAS CHANGED! She told delegates she was scared for her future & reminded them that their 1st responsibility is to future generations. Today the speech continues to make the rounds on social media. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hpu-PP-8YP8
How do we collectively make a change?
I can stop using plastic bags, take the metro and not drive to work. What else can I do? I can use the disposable garbage bags, segregate my garbage waste until I don't use any unrecyclable product and influence people to do the same.
Yes, If we stop buying products that are packed in non-recyclable containers or packs, won't the manufacturers deal with a more environmentally friendly solution for the same?
If I stop using the plastic bags given at supermarkets and shopping malls won't they have to figure out how to make cloth bags for all customers!
It is difficult but it's achievable! Our hope is love and respect, For each other and for the environment. Let's build a better future for our children and their children!12/11/2017 #25 Jerry FletcherIan, I feel the pain as you do. Unhappily I have visited airport restrooms that approximate the one that set you off. At least that litter is biodegradable. The plastic and other items with a hundred year half life that come out of just one fast food joint in a day beggars that stupidity. Here in North America I'm stunned that the grocery clerk still asks "paper or plastic." And so it goes.12/11/2017 #17 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee#4 @Pamela Williams yes. There is a show on in australia called 'the war on Waste" - it is fabulously confronting and at the same time apttemps to educate the uneducated about what happens to our waste. We are able to rape and purge the environment and manufacture it into products for people to buy for economic gain. -We still have such a long way to go to learn how to care for ourselves, our families, our communities, our environment - one of the key shifts needed is valuing "care" and "nurturing" and "community" and "inter-dependence with each other and the environment in which we live.

Comments06/11/2017 #46 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#42 Thanks so much @🐝 Fatima G. Williams! I meant to mention to @Susan 🐝 Rooks, the Grammar Goddess that we both read the same article about being Authentic today and I had to laugh. I have never used this term before and it's been used a lot. The author made some great points because it is over-used. I laughed to myself because of the timing of his article vs. mine and the title I gave my article. I believe @Dave Worthen wrote about it yesterday or today and made some great points. For me, using the term authentic was blatant. I am who I am, and I can't hide it. As you saw after reading this, being true to who I am (authentic) has helped me in ways I could not predict.06/11/2017 #45 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#41 @Harvey Lloyd, you touched on great points. By writing about something so personal we do take a chance and it could ruin our brand. I finally came to the conclusion that I don't want to be associated with people who are unable to understand illnesses like Anxiety and Panic disorder... add depression to that equation. I guess we do have to be choosy when it comes to not only who we associate ourselves within the work environment but also friends and family as well. Just reading the words mental illness for some still have them concluding the person is either attention seeking, lazy, weak, or other. I'm happy there are many who have moved past those labels and understand the brain can become ill just like any organ in our body. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I really appreciate it!06/11/2017 #44 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#39 I wish there was a love button for your comment @Susan 🐝 Rooks, the Grammar Goddess! I didn't see the full impact of my statement about the brain until you quoted it, wow- I must admit, I had a few tears... but they were cleansing tears! I'm glad I'm not the only person who can't read their own writing the older I become ;-) I will have to read Jim's buzz too. We all have differing experiences in life and it's great to share. As I wrote Lada below, variety is (paraphrasing) is definitely the spice of life. We all learn or come to understand life more though a variety of topics. Thanks so much Susan!06/11/2017 #43 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#37 Hi @Lada 🏡 Prkic, many people are not comfortable with sharing their personal stories and that's okay! We all differ and if we were the same, how boring would that be? Everyone has something to offer whether it's personal, educational, business related or other. That is what makes reading more interesting, variety. Thank you so much for your kind words, I truly appreciate them!06/11/2017 #41 Harvey LloydSome great thoughts @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. I think you may have stumbled into the paradox of authenticity.
In order to be authentic humility is required. But this humility may in some cases go against our brand.
Humbling ones self in public may carry over to thoughts of professional deficiencies. From a customer perspective.
This one of the personal challenges within branding. Our brand promotes our strengths but should be too authentic it may expose an area of weakness within the brand.
Interesting concept.06/11/2017 #39 Susan 🐝 Rooks, the Grammar GoddessFunny how some days I see posts written on much the same idea but from completely different perspectivdes, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher! @Jim Murray wrote about being true to yourself; you're writing about being your authentic self.
But the different direction you each took make each post very much worth reading! I applaud you for showing us a world that so many of us have no direct experience of -- being seen as weak rather than ill. It's important that we recognize mental / emotional illness for what it is:
I'm excited to know that you were asked to be on that BOD, and that those who know you see your value! And, Lisa? By the way, I cannot read my own handwriting much any more either; as I age, it gets worse. :-)
And let me leave you with the sentence that will be with me for a long time: "Forget the idea that the brain is highest functioning organ in our bodies, yet when it becomes ill, people are labeled instead of being embraced."

Comments09/11/2017 #48 Cyndi wilkins#47 " If you acknowledge that the mind influences the body-and there is sufficient evidence to show that it does- then it pays to encourage patients to be more
actively involved in their treatment."
This should be the mission statement of every hospital and doctors office around the the globe...The new 'Standard of Care.'
Now get cycling;-)09/11/2017 #44 Cyndi wilkinsThis is exactly what has happened...The administrations of hospitals and large physician practices, insurance companies and big pharma...they are the ones calling all the shots...leaving the doctors with their hands tied in most cases. Then throw in large monetary incentives for prescribing their drugs and you've got a HUGE industry of legal drug pushers.
Advanced technologies have certainly extended lives and in many cases improve their quality, but how about we focus on the quality in which we are living our lives before illness becomes an issue? And you are absolutely right Ian Weinberg...many people do not seem to take much responsibility for their care simply because they have NEVER been encouraged to do so...That old school way of thinking with our elder generation is "The doctor knows best."
I've had this experience myself with physicians when questioning drug protocols and having had some very serious side effects to medications that resulted in at least one very painful surgery...and of course when I suggested the drug may be at the root of the problem I was immediately dismissed as one of 'those patients'....the ones that get 'punted' for not playing the game like everybody else.
So we BOTH need to be team players here. People need to pull their heads out of the sand and take responsibility for their unhealthy habits and lifestyle practices that lead to illness and dysfunction by becoming educated about them....that is where our healthcare practioners have huge influence for encouraging us to be members of our own care team.
Encourage open conversation where patients can ask questions without being cut off and dismissed...LISTENING has all but disappeared from the current healthcare model and has been replaced by 'insensitive software.' We need to get back to the basics;-)08/11/2017 #43 Harvey Lloyd#42 I will have to say that trepidation has crept in when visiting doctors who seem all to keen in dropping you at the doorstep of many other specialists before they will even consider a diagnosis. But they are keen on fear therapy that motivates the new doctor visit or return to them. This is grossly general and i have found many doctors who support the old ways. But they, like me are not going to be in the game much longer.
Maybe we should brain storm a general health elixir and get a wagon and horse. We could make millions.08/11/2017 #42 Ian Weinberg#41 @Harvey Lloyd when it morphed from healthcare to the healthcare industry, doctoring seriously deteriorated. For the most part it is now driven by the buck. Discerning management is being replaced by expensive surgical treatment and in many situations is also being driven by patients who expect a quick fix without taking much resonsibility for the condition or its outcome.06/11/2017 #39 Cyndi wilkins#37 It's of absolutely no surprise that out of the more than 200 billion dollars being funneled into the healthcare system, less than 1% is invested in encouraging people to adopt a healthier lifestyle model and participate in the management of their own care...Shameful really...that illness is used as profit.02/11/2017 #38 Ian Weinberg#37 Thanks for your input @Robert Cormack Interestingly Johns Hopkins made their revelationary anouncement yesterday - they found that people with raised inflammatory markers in mid-life have a significantly increased incidence of developing Alzheimer's! This is 5 years after the initial findings were released revealing a chronic inflammatory component of Alzheimer's and prior to the blowing of 6 billion dollars on fruitless research. All this really boggles the mind.02/11/2017 #37 Robert CormackSince education teaches us "normalcy" and "fitting in," @Ian Weinberg, it stands to reason that they frown on radical ideas. It's not their mandate, nor are educators the types looking for new ideas. When I taught at a community college in Toronto, it was shocking to learn that none of the professors had worked in the field for at least 15 years! Their approach to new media, for instance, didn't even recognize how fast it was changing. When I told students that RSS could essentially be anything, and it would change by the time they graduated (2 years), they were totally confused. Now RSS isn't anything like it was 10 years ago. Interestingly, I was still working in pharma advertising and actually making money on biotech stocks (most of these were formed from discoveries at universities like UofT). I also invested in pharma companies I knew were about to be bought (that required absolutely no inside knowledge). Thanks for the post.31/10/2017 #35 Pascal DerrienMy other half who unlike me has a brain did her post doc research in Pasteur on Alzheimer, she fell most were constrained by the thesis framework to achieve academic protocols rather than provide ground breaking avenues to potential solutions personally I think this still does provide a great platform if you manage to break free from the protocols at some point in the process30/10/2017 #33 Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris"The conspicuous absence of cross-field collaboration." I couldn't have put that better myself! I also couldn't agree more on the thesis of this article. Academic research is not grounded in any way and lots of our tax money gets wasted by people who a) don't know as much about scientific innovation as they think, b) don't have any real incentives to create anything practical, and c) don't know much about Economics and investments. Why these people are in charge of coming up with innovations to improve our lives is a mystery to me! In fact, I'm quite confident that we'll be able to solve the elusive mysteries of prime numbers before we even begin to understand the complexities of corruption that dictate how scientific research functions in the academic world...30/10/2017 #31 Harvey LloydGreat post and you have solicited some great comments in considering the “Realm of Middle Earth Education”.
I dont think we need to throw it away but somewhere along the way the institution has lost its purpose. The very general role of giving knowledge in such a way that humans can advance has given way to dogma and “professortitorial” activism.
Efficacy is a big word for me. Is the stated research and ultimately actions/budgets delivering the expected results? In most cases as political machines run through, each is wanting to design something new so past designs are never measured. So what was once a Volkswagen now has so many appendages it isn’t even recognizable.
Thanks for a great post and thoughts. But i think that Phil touched on some of the many masters that education now serves. The customer used to be the student and their well being, the student has now become a pawn within the warloards of industry, regulation and political masters.
Also known as sculpted research.30/10/2017 #28 Don Philpott☘️"This intellectual ’gang-bang’ is leading to a dumbing down of our development" - the argument is more than simply academics v practicalists...universities are centralist elitist institutions, the internet is a diversified distributed nodal network - key knowledge is not now in books, but on "cheap as chips" chips. In Sweden college is free, in the US its prohibitively expensive. People travel more, spend more on instant gratification, jobs are "not for life"...there is a changing societal tapestry being woven. Its no longer rich white elitists with their cauldrons of power selling expensive magic potions, knowledge has diversified.

Comments03/11/2017 #48 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#47 this buzz deserves great attention dear @Sara Jacobovici. We want to have our choices and one choice is having control. We choose also to be part of the society. This is the paradox. Being part of the society and still have control. Our identity is part of our society and to keep identity while belonging to others in the society calls for finding a balance between our identity and belonging to the society. This balance is dynamic as both us and the society are influenced by the dynamic environment. When the environment changes the society might change and accordingly we might change and become in need for finding a new balance. We can not have control because the boundaries of our control are dynamic too.
Your buzz is a seed that nourishes into a dynamic thinking.03/11/2017 #47 Sara Jacobovici#44 I do agree @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee and very much appreciate how you are able to make insightful connections across buzzes!! The common thread here, I think, is that yourself, @Alan Culler, and @Edward Lewellen, we are all looking at the big picture; our organic and dynamic environment including all life forms (collectively) and how we, as a part (individually) of this environment and our interactions with all aspects of this environment, manifest in our role. By looking at and learning from other life forms, we see our similarities, and our differences. It is our differences that can create complexity when we can benefit from its simplicity. But for me, as Shakespeare wrote, "We are such stuff / As dreams are made on..." Thank you, Dr. Ali, for being a catalyst in these dynamic exchanges.03/11/2017 #45 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorThis is a wonderful post-@Sara Jacobovici. You have expressed your feelings in a most heartfelt and sincere way plus you shared a most valuable lesson in meeting and knowing your limitations. I find your post most enlightening and one I will save for future reference.02/11/2017 #44 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee@Sara Jacobovici- I am reading your buzz again. I had to pause while reading this paragraph. "Often the process feels like it’s too much to take on. In response to being overwhelmed by a situation or event in which we feel out of control, we often try to regain that control by organizing ourselves". I find this quite fitting as a comment on my buzz of today. It is also relevant to what @Alan Culler and @Edward Lewellen commented there and your response as well.
Do you agree?02/11/2017 #43 Sara Jacobovici#39 Thanks @Robert Cormack. Your comment made me think that we don't need to set ourselves up for failure by attempting to go for something that either is "out of bounds" or based on someone else's vision. It sounds like we should be reaching for that peak that is right in front of our eyes. Thanks for making me think.02/11/2017 #39 Robert CormackYes, @Sara Jacobovici, it wouldn't hurt—especially young people—to stop reaching for the sky and try a mountain top occasionally. Mountain tops are visibly possible. Skies move around all the time. I also hate the term (even though I love Dr. Seuss) "Kid, you'll mountains." Has anyone actually moved a mountain? I think we only fail to succeed because of advice. We get lousy advice—even from the good doctor.02/11/2017 #36 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsDear @Sara Jacobovici, Sending you a big hug and lots of smiles from your mom above as she's super proud and knows what a great daughter she raised. This is a very timely buzz as most of the time my limitations are me. I am the reason to take a step back, to pause or to not pursue through to something I want to do or am doing. Limitations are mostly self-imposed or imposed externally depends on where we place ourselves in the universe. So again where we choose to be, who we choose to be around and what we choose to do determine our limitations. Being on beBee with big hearts is a Yes, Yes to keep us shining and contributing to self and others :) Therefore, I agree with this heartfelt buzz, am inspired and thank you for pouring your heart out.
Great to see you back with a big beaming smile ( I can virtually see you smiling now)02/11/2017 #34 Deb 🐝 HelfrichThis is a magnificent piece of writing, @Sara Jacobovici, full of the daughter your mother raised. My most heartfelt condolences, as this event brought you into the dance of limitations that define the structure of human existence.
In that we are limited, we find the impetus to creativity and the delight of choosing the life that brings us the most meaning.
Limitations are best seen as a structure that enables their "true potential of providing a safe environment for growth and development"
I find that in our world of countless things to buy, books to read, people to talk to - embracing the power of active limitation - can relieve the chaos of more choices than we can even compute, let alone enjoy.
Please continue to prioritize your self-care. And embrace the bittersweet sadness in the sorrow of losing your mother, as it will shift to the joy of having had her for so long, when the time arrives.

There is much to be delibrated on the many thoughts you have interweaved in your words that I enjoyed reading your reflections . So thank you for your sharing them @CityVP 🐝 Manjit
History is indeed full of examples of visionary leaders who have seen ahead of their times and forged ahead.
Is the ability to think beyond and believe in the unknown influenced by the situation and circumstances of ones life and times .Or can nature endow a certain stream of consciousness in coorelational of utter randomness that flashes in relational wavelength across and beyond dimensions bending time and space to envision the unforeseen...
I liked in particular your share of Einstein's famous quote that God does not play dice with the universe .While Einstein may have had his reasons to reject the idea of quantum mechanics and while there may be much evidence today to support it ... it is perhaps yet to find an allignment to many important theories of physics. And to envision all life and living occurs amidst this randomness and potential possibilities.29/10/2017 #10 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWe who see the world this way are cut from the same cloth, but metaphorical clothes make the human as much as clothes make the man at the concrete level the world actually communicates. The problem with visionaries is that often they stumble onto a vision through trial and error and thus luck and mistake is the basis of this formation, but the abstraction in leadership which can envision the road ahead is not a common thing. While we celebrate people like Steve Jobs for having excelled at this capacity to see what others at his time could not see, there are many people who see something that the rest of the world has not caught up to. We call this kind of person as being ahead of their time. This does not serve the poor soul who find themselves shot down for being ahead of their time - and this is even more true in the field of scientists and intelligentsia. How many times as an innovative mind been punished for seeing things differently and how many times have we seen these people end up doubting themselves, rather than coming to terms that their gift is something the world is not ready for or the people of a particular time do not yet welcome. None of this is pie-in-the-sky, because history has shown when bright minds saw something the rest of us did not. Had Einstein been born in the time of the Spanish Inquisition, he would have burned by the Spanish - fortunately he shared his mind at the right time, but yet some of things he envisioned were finally proven decades after his death. Then there were things in quantum mechanics that even Einstein found it bizarre to think about, when he said "God does not play dice with the universe".29/10/2017 #5 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador" Who are you? Are you more of the visionary kind?"
"Or are you the more cautious realist who weighs your options before every step?"
I like to think of myself being a little bit of both. I enjoy stepping out of the box, yet I believe some caution is necessary - mostly the use of common sense will suffice.28/10/2017 #3 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee"Creativity stems from the acceptance of your authentic self.

Comments04/06/2017 #6 Puneet SrivastavaExcellent write-up. This is proving to be a wonderful Sunday. For start-ups, I feel, your logo must remind you of your story - the purpose of you having got yourself into the ordeal; the mission you have to accomplish; the values you have chosen to stand for and the vision you aim to be. This is because as a solo-preneur you may get nothing else to bank upon. Thus your a logo then acts like a gallantry medal on the chest of an otherwise war-weary soldier, who won't return unless they have won the war. Thank you @Gloria 🐝 🐾 💫 ☕ (Glo) Ochoa .

How exciting to start your biz -- It isnt in limbo, it's gearing up for something AWESOME!! :) You know, can work with a logo designer from anywhere, but some people prefer local for various reasons. (besides supporting local small businesses, right? ;) ) I think you can absolutely use something like Fiverr for a quick temporary logo if you want one right away. OR you can create your own as well-- some free online ones and one of my fave apps is The Logo Creator ! SUPER easy! Actually I use the Logo creator for my memes. Canva is also a free online app that you can do Logos and more!05/05/2017 #3 AnonymousI completely agree. My designer for speaktheenglish.com gave me a manual for my logotip with all of this information in a handy PDF. Then, made the following files for my usage.. .png, JPEG, a favicon and my logo/symbol! I have black and white images as well. My three colors are gentle to the eyes but, my origami butterfly symbol? This symbolizes the intricacy and dedication of a origami artist/expert....a visualization for mastery from the creative side. The butterfly in itself is also transformation personified in the sense from larva, pupa and full-on butterfly you have again transformation. A butterfly goes through cycles and changes. Everything I have purchased for my logo had ensured me I have so many options for swag and other promotional materials and all formats of advertising from self-mailers, social media banners, any paper media, business documents, etc. I love one of my typography choices is none other than Avenir Light.
