А вот по поводу обучения все проще. Мы сейчас готовим к запуску проект совместно с журналом Нептун. Там будут все варианты касающиеся подводной фотографии, как выездные так и здесь на месте.

It proves that if one needs an answer to a question one just have to ask.
To go on-topic about trees and roots and us... Well, I am sure you know this, but nevertheless I link it.
I like this, though it can be misunderstood.18/11/2016 #27 Franci Eugenia HoffmanTrees have roots to assist them in grasping the ground and holding on to life. Humans have roots to assist them in connecting with others and holding on to life. Unfortunately, humans don't always appreciate their roots and lose touch with life and all it has to offer. Humans can benefit from learning about trees and the challenges they face. Learning to adapt to uncontrollable or controllable circumstances is a major advantage in how humans can cope with challenges.16/11/2016 #25 Joris Plaatstaal#13 @ Ali Anani. "yes, we humans have choices, but do we select carefully?" .... I think not. They majority of people I know, just go with the flow. They need to conform to the public mind. They need to be part of, some, society.... I give you that, trees just live or die. Can humans live without conformation? I doubt it, I think we need it. I think we are so desperate in need of just that, conformation. Are we willing to ignore the entity we are in order to receive conformation?
Loose yourself in order to fit in the virtual hive? To be accepted? To be what some idea wants you to be?
I entered beBee to question us and myself. Why are you and me here, in this domain? Why do we even spent time here? Is being on social media a conformation to the rest?
I need to learn. I will learn.14/11/2016 #24 Ali Anani#23 No question I am going to spend this evening pondering on this idea "Our barter system of time/intelligence for money should act like the grove of trees. Learn, stabilize and grow.......But for some reason the need for volatility is strong in the human psyche". This is sheer brilliance @Harvey Lloyd. I shall be back with more elaboration of my understanding of this great and provoking idea.14/11/2016 #23 Harvey Lloyd#20 The hurricane within the metaphor is our current political climate to humans or the opportunity for the sapling to grow is when the grove becomes damaged and the canopy opens.
Our economic system benifits from volatility, it shakes the leaves of money lose from one group and allows another to flourish. The system can be played, but to what end? Our barter system of time/intelligence for money should act like the grove of trees. Learn, stabilize and grow.......But for some reason the need for volatility is strong in the human psyche. We have to shake things up.
We call this our best system to satisfy the masses the best way possible. Trees show us a different path. But the path is not special, exciting or glorifying. Humans have to make that part work.

Comments08/11/2016 #25 Aurorasa Sima#23 It´s possible but it´s a chore at first. I used to stay so long in supermarkets when I first tried to change that they often asked me if they could help. The link I posted has a barcode scanner app.
That´s one of the reasons I hate shopping. With the exceptions of a few sins (PIZZZZZZA), I also avoid GMO and MSG´s and sugar.

A messy alternative are Indian shampoos that just consist of one ingredient or a few herbs/plants. It takes time and is a real mess. http://amzn.to/2eHnubX
And http://media.mercola.com/assets/pdf/product-labels/shampoo.pdf and the conditioner. It takes about 2 weeks for your hair to get used to it. Your hair might look greasy for the first short time. After that, whatever problems you might have will get better. Conditioner and shampoo last very long, so that it´s even super cheap.
Might not be perfect but as close as it gets while still offering the same features as the bad stuff.08/11/2016 #18 Aurorasa Sima#17 I only knew it because I already tried to remove every single product containing palm oil. Even many organic brands are trying to cheat on you and use only some organic ingredients.
Marketing departments go through great lengths to make up so many words for sugar, palm oil and and and that it´s hard to keep up.

@Fatima Williams shared yesterday a short video on how it seems to be the arrival of a phonetic language that cuts us off from the languages of our natural surroundings. The alphabet segregates us from other sorts of languages and the "rest of the land falls mute"
"The letters usurp that participation - they short-circuit that reciprocity" ... with all the other environmental 'languages' that our senses can make available to us.
We have examples such as the tremendous ability of the Wayfinder's understanding how to navigate an ocean as written about by Wade Davis and Martha Beck's love affair with tracking in the African veldt - we humans do have the ability to speak nature, if we can figure out how to get out of our boxes.08/11/2016 #14 Ben PintoLoved this piece. The best selling book The Giving Tree is about a person that is friends with a plant. By the end of the book, though, you are left with the understanding that this plant was used and abused by a human. So sad.

Jawad@Deb Lange Reading your post, I am reminded of something interesting. Tell you what? We ought to observe, perceive and feel our Mother Nature, our intimate surroundings and then reciprocate with refreshing thoughts that come out from our learning.

Comments25/10/2016 #12 CityVP Manjit#9 It is a sad memory but not a bad memory, my friend was trying to take a photograph just like this one, it speaks to the risk any photographer takes with Elephants. Elephants have long memories. His death is a reminder that elephants need protecting from poachers, and the elephants in the picture are lucky to have their tusks, such is the size of the illegal ivory trade.24/10/2016 #5 AnonymousWOW. In the one travel experience I had abroad in 2007, I was in Tanzania and was blessed to be on a Safari where I was like a child in great JOY at the sight of elephants, lions, giraffes, hippopotamus, monkeys - and more, in their natural habitats. Pure beauty = such that words cannot capture. I hope this can translate!! thank you for this wonderful photo!!23/10/2016 #1 CityVP ManjitThis picture fills me with a little sadness because it reminds me of my friend Don Hornsby who I stayed with in South Africa and who was rushed by an elephant and trampled to death while trying to take a photograph. Elephants have been so traumatized by poachers that the large elephant instinctively went on the attack. I cannot believe that this was six years ago, it was only a matter of months after I had returned from South Africa that we heard of this terrible news from his family. http://www.iol.co.za/news/africa/elephant-tramples-man-to-death-687670

Comments24/10/2016 #42 Ali Anani#41 Dear @namita sinha- I wish every bee would read your great and penetrating comment. You wrote "Writing and reading are medium to feel aware of our feelings and give them a safe route of expression and exchange, its almost a kind of meditation to focus on conscious writing / reading". How true!
EMotional Networks based on clusters of emotions shall reveal new findings, and I have no doubt this statement is valid. The network might show five main emotions as clusters. Emotions have connections to each other. Love shall attract people and hatred shall do a well. I started to see emotions in different perspectives.
Dear @namita sinha- do share your ideas in a buzz. They shall be valuable.24/10/2016 #41 namita sinha#40 Well, a kind of synchronicity again Dr @Ali Anani, indeed after reading your post, as already expressed, I too have been thinking on posting on how Emotional Connections are so vital and fundamental to successful social media networking, ad infact they are but "Emotional networks .. ". Come to think of it, why we all are pulled to your buzzes , well of course because you put forth such wonderful ideas but also because you value our feelings and emotions when we respond with our comments , which ultimately helps us further with our expressions and ideations . It is indeed a symbiotic relationship of great content and emotional satisfaction . As humans , we are driven constantly by how we feel ,..and its anytime good to be aware of these emotions and not suppress them.
Writing and reading are medium to feel aware of our feelings and give them a safe route of expression and exchange, its almost a kind of meditation to focus on conscious writing / reading .And some social media networks as these, allow for this safe haven to exist for all of us - where we come together for an emotional as much as an intellectual exchange ; and that's also a reason why ultimately its the like minded and emotionally close ones who become a part of a certain group / hive / community.... We feel the bond and the connection growing strong, don't we, we almost start caring for each other even though we may not have even met or spoken to so many in our networks ! The vibes continue ... to attract more ...
And as I am reflecting more on this...glad to see that it rings a bell to you too...and you shall do great justice, I am sure :)24/10/2016 #40 Ali Anani#39 Dear @namita sinha-it is always a pleasure to read your comments any time. You concluded your comment with a gem "we tend to learn so much from the processes at play around us in the nature and its never enough ...".
I don't know how feasible or even silly the idea that started ringing in my head if we have social networks why don't we have equally emotions networks? When we socialize are emotions are involved. How to relate the two is an idea that started brewing. May be you can help, dear namita24/10/2016 #39 namita sinhaDear Sir @Ali Anani, loved this buzz from you and though a bit delayed my response, I still stand to gain even more - by the post and the enriching comments as well by so many Bees !
When you talk of symbiotic existence, I am instantly connected to the idea of Emotional Intelligence in Action in Human relationships , be it at workplace, family or any other social context. And its indeed true that Social Media is another powerful one to germinate a most powerful network of connected ones.
So though Emotional intelligence ( commonly referred to as EI or EQ) begins with building awareness of one's own feelings and behaviour and then to those of others, its all about using this awareness and knowledge towards constructive and mutually beneficial long term relationships. Hence the one who knows how his partner is expected to feel and behave in a situation uses this intuition and wisdom to build the most fulfilling relationships and experiences. The perfect case for harmonious existence and synergy, but ofcourse , only if purpose and intent as always is right and not manipulative towards greed and short term gains !
Coming to ideas again, I would say its all about being aware in the moment and taking it up one at a time rather than rushing and multi tasking or forcing ideas towards deadlines ! One needs to slow down at times or change gears so to say !
Your metaphors beautifully support the fact again , that we tend to learn so much from the processes at play around us in the nature and its never enough ...22/10/2016 #38 Ali Anani#31 As this metaphor extends, trees are such a perfect image of standing strong as an individual while collaborating with all sorts of lifeforms.- yes, I agree completely with @Sara Jacobovici View more#31 As this metaphor extends, trees are such a perfect image of standing strong as an individual while collaborating with all sorts of lifeforms.- yes, I agree completely with @Sara Jacobovici in expanding this into what promises to be a great buzz. Close22/10/2016 #35 Ali Anani#28 I believe it is distortion i thinking and all for me mentality- I have done it alone- I have achieved this on my own- are just examples of this pretension. An almighty tree builds symbiotic relationship with fungi and together they established the most powerful underground social networks. It is not strong with strong or weak with strong as much as it is what symbiosis offers the two parties.22/10/2016 #34 Ali Anani#27 Yes, and I am truly happy this thought resonated wit you @Deb Lange. Being our own doesn't man isolation and no matter how strong an individual is he/she needs other people. It is going to the extremes and this or that mentality that is causing this distortion. And like you said this becomes an awakening to building symbiotic relationship and we have to search on how best to do that as not all people are the same.20/10/2016 #32 Deb Helfrich#31 I so appreciate the encouragement, @Sara Jacobovici. I have been marinating a lot on the seeming contradiction of independence and interdependence as they are both always present, it just depends on which way we squint - like the visual illusions where one image yields two entirely different pictures depending on which feature we focus on. And of course , fractal patterns - we, as observers, are the determining factor between seeing the initial shape or the larger patterns the repetition of that initial shape creates - that shape is always both an independent entity and an essential part of the pattern.
Watching all these ideas, concepts, and different expressions by different minds each day is priceless. I am so grateful for all this knowledge ripe for snatching as it flies by; I feel like a Venus Flytrap myself.
As @Ali Anani said "The movement of the parts selve the functionality of the whole system. "20/10/2016 #30 Deb Helfrich#28 It feels like we are moving a bit more in the direction of seeing the entire globe as a web of symbiotic relationships, but it runs counter to the trend of putting ourselves - humans - into boxes for the last century or so. As this metaphor extends, trees are such a perfect image of standing strong as an individual while collaborating with all sorts of lifeforms.20/10/2016 #28 Deb LangeIn reality, we do not live our lives n our own. We are all in symbiotic relationships with each other, but, we pretend we are independent. I wonder if we accepted this natural condition to be interdependent whether we could be better at supporting one another in work and life.20/10/2016 #27 Deb LangeDear @Ali Anani it is the symbiotic relationship that resonates with me so much in this post. Our society has favoured individualism, do things for yourself, be independent etc - that is all very well, I think we do need to be responsible. BUT, when we think for ourselves and create our lives as if we are separate from each other, we wonder why so many people feel alienated.
Many people feel at odds with how to be inter-dependent, or how to create a symbiotic relationship like plants, where you may do something for me and I do something different, but we are both supporting each other in different ways. In reality, we are not alone and we can not live without one another. I do hope we can learn how to create better symbiotic relationships with each other and all of nature.
- 12/10/2016People have written much about trees (Joyce Kilmer, @Ali Anani...)
For me, trees anchor me to nature, to a world that is bigger than I.

Comments09/10/2016 #39 Ali AnaniDear @Deb Lange- yes, and you explain why we have so few pioneers. Numbers talk. 2-3% are pioneers and up to 15% are early adopters. Discovery means taking risk and not staying in our comfort zone. Birds migrate from cold regions to warm ones. We do the same, or use mechanical devices such as heating/cooling. Trees stay where they are and have therefore developed great and stunning ideas on how to cope with the environment. Yes, we do adapt eventually, but at what cost. You now that the cost of finding wound dressing or pain killers cost humanity so much money and troubles when trees were producing their own analgesics. I am publishing in few minutes what may be an extended response to your lovely comment. It is amazing that as I was about to upload that you commented. I always give priority to respond to sound comments than publishing.09/10/2016 #38 Deb LangeDear @Ali Anani, you say, "Trees have to stay on the edge to adapt for the uncontrollable environment. Trees face great challenges to which they respond with many creative strategies.". I think we too have to stay on the edge for an environment that is uncontrollable. We too face great challenges that require adaptation. However, the prevailing consciousness is safer in hanging on to the staus quo, or safer waiting until science tells us what to do, or until others pave a path before us to follow. Perhaps, it will always be like this, we will have the early adopters/adaptors/creators who are resilient and experiment and discover and create new ways to think, sense and be, just as you are leading the way with your study of trees and nature and how that relates to the way humans think. We have early adopters who are willing to plunge in, like the early people in BeBee, who want to create a different kind of connection. Then when something looks like it is being successful others will follow. Perhaps, trees and plants and other animate creatures also have this embedded. For example the 100th monkey experiment. There is usually, one being, that will experiments and creates something new and adapts and then others follow. We do eventually adapt, or if we don't species die out. This seems to be true for any living species. can we quicken our ability to adapt the more we are now connected via the internet and in bebee where we can add to each other's ideas and further pollinate them both here and across the world.08/10/2016 #36 Sara Jacobovici#33 Thanks for your comment @Irene Hackett. I appreciate you bringing in the heart and our relationship to its function. I agree that, thank God, our heart goes on in spite of us but what is interesting is that our "thinking", consciously and subconsciously, actually influences our heart rate. We can choose to slow or speed up our own heart rate. It's just a matter of understanding how to use this ability and as a response to what need.08/10/2016 #33 AnonymousDear @Sara Jacobovici, yes, isn't it amazing how "Nature knows what it needs and where to get it." I think of our own heartbeat, it continues day & night without any help from us! I wonder what would happen if we had to 'think' about beating our own hearts? I love how you point out that "we have identity issues, trees and algae do not." Your purposeful "win/win" business description is a great example of what can happen as we become less attached to our personal 'identity' and more aware of the one presence in all.08/10/2016 #32 Ali Anani#29 Your comment dear @Sara Jacobovici is deep and your writing " we have identity issues, trees and algae do not" is very true. We are molecules and when they react and exchange electrons they are even willing sometimes to lose their identity for a big cause (stability). Just thinking about water it consists of two gases. but these gases are willing to share electrons to create a BETTER IDENTITY. I think it is here where humans fail- even for a better identity they still want to keep the old ones. Something to think about08/10/2016 #29 Sara JacoboviciWith each Buzz @Ali Anani you take us a layer deeper in learning about this fascinating life form which not only connects with ours but from which you show us how much we can benefit from this learning. The line that stands out for me at this reading is, "Trees form symbiotic relationship with algae..." What is meaningful for me is that this reminds me of the difference between humans and our co-habitants in nature; we have identity issues, trees and algae do not. They are not concerned that if they enter into relationship of interdependence they will lose part of their identity. Nature knows what it needs and where to get it. That is something we humans can be reminded of; if I need to enter into a relationship with a business colleague or partner, I do not lose any aspect of my identity or take away from the identity of the other. We acknowledge what we need and how we can help each other without any loss to either of us. I think this is referred to as a "win/win situation".08/10/2016 #27 debasish majumder#26 Thank you very much sir Dr. Ali Anani, Phd. for your kind appreciation. whatever today i am writing precisely for your support and appreciation, which enable me to write primarily for your inspiration. i am indebted to you a lot sir. my heartiest tribute to you which i can only offer. my struggle and inspiration, not letting my morals down precisely for your guidance and support right from my interaction with you. a true mentor by all means.08/10/2016 #23 Jeet SarkarGreat article sir @Ali Anani! An informative article provided with many thought provoking matter! Truly, trees are facing so much problems but they survive well with new strategies, not only that they provide some chemicals by virtue of which human society are benefited as well! Flavanoids, terpenes phenol, alkaloids, sterols, waxes, fats, tannin, sugars, gums, suberins, resin acids and carotenoids are among the many classes of compounds known as secondary or special metabolites which are very essential for us too! However, a good article sir. thank you for sharing it!

- Producer27/09/2016Ideas Don't MoveTrees don't move and yet they produce lovable fruits. I often say "a moving idea", but I am still in my place. To be living is to be moving? Trees live longer than humans. Is this a paradox? There are the walking trees. In fact, they don't...
Comments28/09/2016 #26 Ali Anani#25 Dear sister @Irene Hackett- it is a paradox. I am writing about standstill tree while having caught severe cold and then your comment warms me up and runs my water. Yes, we can go beyond our limitations and this is the core message of this buzz. Acceptance of our limitations creates creative thinking and yields to the production of fruity ideas such as yours.28/09/2016 #25 AnonymousDear brother @Ali Anani - first, please take good care of yourself as you are recovery from that cold! Second, know that your buzzes always warms my heart and move me beyond thoughts. It is interesting this idea of movement that is not associated with a phisical shift - I find the key concept to be 'shift'. Something within can shift as we go beyond limiting circumstance, beyond limiting thoughts (refer To @Lisa Gallagher recent triumph) and it is the power of the universe. Nothing less.28/09/2016 #21 Ali Anani#19 The expected quality of comment from @Mohammed Sultan and you never fail to deliver high quality fruity comments. I like so much your attention to "the idea we stick in our customers mind about our fruits(products) can pull them or move them to the store shelves to pick these fruits.This's the " idea pull" on which the concept of our ads is built". Amazing how you summarized my recent buzzes with such depth and interconnections.28/09/2016 #19 Mohammed SultanDear Ali Anani,PhD.Your ideas can take us everywhere and even can change the equilibrium of our minds.Trees don't move but produce fruits that provide us with the energy required to make us move.Some fruits, as well as,ideas are more preferable than others although they are irrigated by the same source ,the same water, and the same source of knowledge.Trees are like organizations can diversify organically either vertically or horizontally,change their leaves and businesses, but also keep their roots intact.The idea we stick in our customers mind about our fruits(products) can pull them or move them to the store shelves to pick these fruits.This's the " idea pull" on which the concept of our ads is built.Whether our advertising ideas are enough to do the job or not,we always go back to our pipelines of ideas to find a new one,and then run with it to the market.Our innovation process also starts with an idea that can move us everywhere and even can change our strategic equilibrium.27/09/2016 #11 debasish majumder'Trees move as well the make a paradigm shift in terms of different soil texture. lovely intriguing post. heat have two different impact on the same body. cold may solidified and hot evaporates. heat is also an intriguing form of energy! however, lovely insightful post as always sir Dr. @Ali Anani, Phd. enjoyed read. thank you very much for sharing the post, wishing you to be more solid in terms of your phenomenal posts enabling us to enrich sir.27/09/2016 #10 Ali Anani#7 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- Because we can propel ourselves across space, we often forget that movement takes place on so many different levels. What could i add? I think we need to collect your wisdom and fill it have A Jar of Wisdom by @Sara Jacobovici. Thank you and I agree fully that movement may be intangible sometimes.27/09/2016 #8 AnonymousThank you @Sara Jacobovici for your relevant and consistent comment, I am fully agree. The brain is converging to the quantum and cognitive limit, both sensorily sensitive in each of the principal quantum modes of interaction and possessing generalized sensory processing capabilities arising from edge of chaotic dynamics and quantum electro-physiology, understood in the perception of its existential dilemma to move on...Maybe ;) #527/09/2016 #7 Sara JacoboviciPart 2/2 You're right @Ali Anani when you advise us to learn from trees when things seem not to be moving. Because we can propel ourselves across space, we often forget that movement takes place on so many different levels. And, as you say, trees have much to teach us. They may not be able to propel themselves across space but there is constant movement in their growth and development and in their dynamic and intricate dance with nature. There is much to learn from how we move in stillness.
Vibrations are the signals of life forms; they are movements and only become sounds when they can be "heard".
Finally, I am always amazed by the fact that the same area of the brain that gives us signals to move our muscles is also the area that allows us to experience emotion and so we use the words "being moved" when describing something that we feel deeply. In this way, movement does not need to take place exclusively on a physical level. But there is no doubt how important emotions are to help us move, react, respond, engage and so on. And no doubt how important a physical movement is to enable us to shift or get out of an emotional stuck place.
Dr. Ali, I wish you a quick recovery. Feel well soon and thank you for the bottom of my heart.
- Producer09/09/2016Hello, Mister 🐧This magpie has been coming to visit for a couple of years now and sometimes brings along a fledgeling. I understand they recognise individual human features. Here is what she said to me the other day. -------------------------Hello, mister. Yes,...
Comments10/09/2016 #22 Ken Boddie#19 Perhaps, Tony, you could get your niece to photograph or video Buddy on her phone then send the video to her friends or bring it into class for 'show and tell'? That way there may be a chance that peer pressure will make her realise how unique this interaction is with the cardinal. Just a thought. 🤔10/09/2016 #21 Ken Boddie#18 Poops won't eat any fruit at all, which is strange for a cockatiel. Maggie on the other hand eats all sorts of strange things (except banana) but I haven't tried her on tofu. As for durian, I don't want my dustbin left on the street untouched on collection day, so won't entertain the thought of having any in the house.
Now about this Scrooge label, Mr Owen. Don't you know that Scots Kiwi Aussies are big spenders. Just ask the moths that inhabit my wallet, Oy vey?10/09/2016 #19 Tony BrandstetterI enjoy the little friend that come to visit. I have a little male Cardinal, Buddy that comes in the morning, I can't seem to start my day with out a visit from Buddy. My Niece, 12 years old living in the age of electronics was sitting with me, of course on her phone, Buddy came right up to her, she looked a brief second and went back to her phone. This child is missing out. I asked her, what kind of memories do you think you will make with your phone?10/09/2016 #14 Ken Boddie#11 Unfortunately, Lisa, many people are oblivious to the damage that cats do to wild life when they are left to roam free outdoors at night. We have lost a lot of our smaller species here in Oz, either due to uncontrolled cats and dogs in suburbia, or feral cats and dogs in the bush. Many of these feral animals started life as pets and then escaped after abuse or neglect.10/09/2016 #11 Lisa GallagherShe's beautiful and loved the poem @Ken Boddie! I had no idea they recognize facial features. I wonder if crows do to? My cousins had a crow that spent every spring, summer and fall around the pool with them and yes, even on their shoulder. I don't think she liked me, she used to swoop over my head like, watch out there girl.. I might peck you! Actually, I was sort of afraid of her when I was young. We had a dove on our deck today. I wondered why she didn't fly away when I opened the door, and slowly walked in front of me. I saw her neck and wing, I think a cat got to her. That made me sad!
