    Nice buzz, Renee. Actually, it might be too good. Thus, I hope you don't get surreptitiously recruited by the Russians, North Koreans, or some other communist/totalitarian regime to run their propaganda machines, cranking out even more (and better) fake news (although the contracts might be lucrative, lol). Remember, we need you here in North America to speak truth to power, or the perception thereof.
    Actually, I just heard the Fake News Channel...I mean Fox News Channel, has an opening at their 8:00 pm prime-time hour for a host to replace alleged serial sexual harasser Billy "Hands" O'Reilly. But I'm guessing that @Jim Murray, @Phil Friedman or @Kevin Pashuk will be competing fiercely for that slot. Keep buzzing!

    Deb Helfrich; Thank you for your comment and yes, listening or even knowing how to listen especially when you have a sensory overload can be very hard and therefore it is certainly a complex skill that needs constant revisiting and revising so we can hone our skills to serve us better.
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    16/03/2017 #7 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    Listening is one extremely complex skill. You've certainly got the discussion started, @Deidré Wallace. I don't think any of us is a static number, as the people we are listening to, the situations we are listening in, and even the fluctuations in our health impact our ability to focus, show empathy, and participate fully in the moment. I do a better than average job at listening between the lines of written words and in small conversations, but in a situation - like a club or a cubicle (yes, I find both environments full of way too much stimulation across all the senses to zone in on listening to what I am hearing with any sort of expertise) - when I am in sensory overload, I'd be way far down the listening scale near 1.

    “It is understanding that gives us an ability to have peace. When we understand the fellow’s viewpoint, and he understand’s our, then we can sit down and work out our differences.” – Harry S. Truman. Because people communicate in so many ways, we many times lack the patience to understand someone else, which can lead to anger.

    language true is a unique means of communication and it is equally in the continuous process of evolving. different country having different socio economic fabric and language also equally evolved. i have observed in a factory, workers are making effective signals to communicate within themselves and as owing to tremendous sound in the factory, their reflexes are equally evolved. even in our daily life we may use plenty of words which are traditionally being used and being carried on generation after generation, virtually ingrained in our reflex. we seldom ponder seriously about its pragmatic value. however, lovely insight @Lance Scoular! enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

    @Lance 🐝 Scoular- I am sharing this beautiful buzz for it contains great wisdom. I ask myself sometimes it is less or more or less and more together? I try to avoid separation thinking because it limits our choices.
    You brilliantly showed why less is more. I have experienced myself that the less time I have, the more I am productive. People need as much time as you give them. We only then increase their slack time and giving more time means getting less work done.

    The level of our understanding is not relevant to communicating within the sophistication of our audience. I tend to be overtly entrusted to the most complicated possibility yet when discovering the solution it presents itself with grating simplicity. The glass is half empty or half full. Is it refillable or do you get a different sized glass? Oh the possibilities ............

    Thanks @Lance 🐝 Scoular, for writing on a topic close to my heart; communication. Definitely interests me to look at how we use words and the meanings we ascribe to them. This does shape our choices and behaviours. Culture is also a factor that influences the meanings or expressions. Individual experiences also influence the meaning. My mother's eastern European culture of her generation put much value on more; more education, more titles, more money, "the more the better". In the movie Rhapsody in Blue (1945), a biography of the American composer and musician George Gershwin, the father always asks Gershwin how many pages is his latest composition. When he gets the answer, the father repeats the number and says, "A very important piece".

    Voltaire, a very wise man, he also quoted:

    Common sense is not so common.
    The best is the enemy of the good.
    The infinitely little have a pride infinitely great.

    François-Marie Arouet, known by his nom de plume Voltaire, was a French Enlightenment writer, historian, and philosopher famous for his wit, his attacks on the established Catholic Church, and his advocacy of freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and separation of church and state.

    Ahhh.Voltaire, un homme très sage, il a aussi cité :

    Bon sens n’est pas si fréquent.
    Le mieux est l’ennemi du bien.
    L’infiniment petit ont une fierté infiniment grand.

    François-Marie Arouet, connu sous son nom de plume de Voltaire, était un écrivain, historien et philosophe célèbre pour son esprit, ses attaques contre l’Eglise catholique établie et son plaidoyer en faveur de la liberté de culte, liberté d’expression et la séparation de l’Eglise et l’Etat Français lumières.

    Two great parts to this, both the outline of Kirk's career path and then the perspective he provides around a career in science communications. While my personal perspective here is life path rather than career path based, the conversation this adds to is my own relationship at the campus level which acts as my offline part of my personal learning journey.

    If any "scientist" needs to be convinced that science communications can be a rewarding career, he or she needs but examine the career history of David Takayoshi Suzuki, Ph.D. Case closed.

    @Milos Djukic Sometimes I go and play guitar in New Orleans around Jackson Square...I'm getting more confident that I did that everyday...all day --it would be the best career--ever! It's already my favorite activity; I don't even care if it makes me "late" for "important appointments" or someone's wedding.

    #1 @Milos Djukic I didn't know that there even were lesser/greater careers.
    I think the important criteria are aid sick leave, health insurance, family leave, and lots of outdoor time!

    Thanks for the share, @Milos Djukic I know firsthand how this feels. As I entered High School, because of high exam scores I was placed in the 'science' track. I had no choice. Back then, people thought more intelligent people did science and math, fini.

    At university, I switched from Sciences to the Humanities and disappointed my whole family. People said, 'but you're such an INTELLIGENT girl, you should read science!' Fortunately (and surprisingly if you knew her) my mother stuck by me.

    #2 Strategic Communications is easier said than done. It's a dirty job -- LOL -- but someone's got to do it 🤓😂

    What does the future of social media look like?

    Social media is evolving every day with new ways for organizations to reach their audience. In 2016 we saw the rise of Snapchat and Instagram stories and live video, among other things. As technology advances, social media has been along for the ride. We’ve come a long way from brick cell phones and giant, heavy PCs.
