    #9 Yeah government by the social and media pressure come up and strategically taken some steps to bring underprivileged communities out of their grievances but the situation is worst since decades and need more sustainable initiatives to cope with it. However; various NGOs/INGOs accessed to these communities and provided different livelihood and craft development programs to generate enough income for survival. We still wish and hope to get more opportunities by state to enhance the livestock and agricultural trends as these communities mostly depends on livestock and rain based agriculture.

    @Om Parkash Pragani Great buzz, it's great to understand how a society has come to depending on child labour and what strategies there are in preventing and stopping the dependance of child labour. I do hope that the government truly takes stronger steps towards creating better ways in which families can cope without needing to have their children work to get by. I've seen how in India micro financing facilities, better education and aid have helped certain communities. I hope that this will be the case in Thar Desert as well. Looking forward to reading your next buzz!

    #4 Law doesn't allow such practices but a corrupt bureaucratic setup and policy makers never access vulnerable and deprived areas to provide the justice at grass root level.

    @Mohammad Azam Khan its very true that 2 years back Thar desert has portrait very worst situation of drought and deaths occurred particularly of children, despite the fact that Thar desert has been witnessed of severe and alternate droughts since the decades but no any long term sustainable mechanism was devised by province as well as district government. Lots of NGOs and INGOs are implementing diversified interventions but such interventions can not be alternate of state. Even though after highlighting the issues by media some sudden changes were observed in bureaucracy setup and active and like minded officers were deputed to get opinions from local media, elected representatives, communities, NGOs and other line agencies. This practice was continued for couple of months and paper policy was devised however; some visible changes were found in context of development of roads, hospitals, hiring of doctors for far flung areas, later on media and community stepped back and government got silent..........................................Waiting for another drought or emergency to wake them up for next step.

    Thanks @Aurorasa Sima for the tag. Great buzz @Om Parkash Pragani. Slavery in its variety of shapes is a known and widespread practice all over. Having said that, the situation at Thar at Sindh province of Pakistan is one of the worst in the region. Two/three years ago there was a drought there and people were dying from it and for all the awareness and advocacy the government bureaucracy managed to wipe it under the metaphorical carpet. Nauseously, I was at a leading bureaucrats office at Peshawar when they were relating to it as non existent despite wide and known evidence, a doctor who had been sent over by the bureaucracy from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province to validate was vouching that there's nothing wrong their - I refuted them with evidence and berrated them. Slavery in agriculture and brick kilns is a known and wide practice. The government bureaucracy is responsible for managing, leading and directing all affairs across Pakistan and if they let it show then they'll have to work and that's something they are not good at and don't want to do honestly and would rather enjoy their fearful authority, networks and perks and make illicit monies. It's a sad sad story and has a tremendous potential for improvement and alleviation and eradication. Lastly I'd like to add that even the renowned NGOs are in cahoots with them.

    #3 Does the law just ignore these families who push their children into labor? That's so sad.
    Om Parkash Pragani
    05/10/2016 #3 Om Parkash Pragani
    Its all because of their families who take debt from landlords and could not pay back, they push their children to pay on behalf of them and children were pushed in carpet weaving looms for a life end.

    This is so sad. Children who don't even know what it's truly like to grow up as a 'child,' not to mention the conditions they take for granted because it's the only life they know. I pray that laws will crack down on child labor in Pakistan and other countries who still practice this. It seems very complex with regards to housing, medical and more- but this should never fall onto the backs of children. Sharing- I hope this goes viral.

    I have never tried the vinegar 'bath' @Javier - will definitely give it a try this berry season. We are quite well known in the Pacific Northwest for marionberries - blackberries that are a little longer than the ones in your picture with a very strong taste. I do have to recommend the 'other' vinegar method - balsamic dressing. In the winter when I can only get frozen, which with thaw into less than pristine berries, I drizzle a really good balsamic over the berries - delicious!

    Berries are also pretty low in calories. 180 ml of strawberries (about 3/4 cup) is about 60 Calories. I recently lost 56 pounds (and counting). That's about 25kg for you metric types. Berries were a big part of that. Javier is absolutely right. Moisture is the enemy. Strawberries are less fragile than true berries. They aren't really berries at all. They can be piled up. Other berries can't be. My personal favourites are the small wild blueberries. They are denser and slightly more tart. I once chased a bear away from a bush. I don't like sharing.

    Raspberries are my daughter's favorite. When she was very young we were hiking on a mountain and found a wild raspberry bush. I speculated that it had probably been planted by earlier residents that were long gone. We sat and ate half the bush...she's been fan every since that discovery.#6

    It is strawberry season in North Carolina, the farmers market is awash with the smell of their fresh aroma. A lesser known berry is the mulberry. We discovered two mulberry trees in our backyard after cutting down years of Kudzu overgrowth! The aren't great fresh off the tree but make great jams and pork marinades. However, the squirrels usually make inroads into consuming the majority of them before they are ripe enough to use. Our back fence is also lined with wild blackberries but once again those pesky members of wildlife grab the best of the patch.
    Loved the suggestions though! I did not know about either of these methods.

    This is a heart-touching appeal and heart-melting emotions. I highly appreciate your positiveness towards humanity @Pascal Derrien! Love has no religion or faith, or every religion and faith is based on love and care to others, whatever phrase suits your feelings. Social media has shaken, if not broken completely, the obstacles of boundaries between the humane race. But this rapidly evolving media still is under the influence of the traditional media. This is a barrier need to be neutralized to make the love-based connectivity the most powerful engagement across social media, and across the world. Thanks a lot!

    Money is the base common denominator - most people readily and immediately understand the loss of cash out of their pocket, and the increase to their wallet - however if everyone is pitching the less cost, more profit, save time lines - you are just another piece of chum in the water if you bring this to the table. Find the OUCH motivation - OUCH is where the money is made - OUCH is where relationships will outpace cost - OUCH is where you separate your services from the rest...... And if there is no OUCH ? ..... Trust me - there always is an OUCH.

    Too true @Qamar Ali Khan. Dufour left the established watch industry to go independent because he felt the industry had lost it's focus and became a huge marketing machine. He could easily now turn his reputation into a multi-million dollar brand, but is just happy to churn out around 5 watches a year now making no compromise on the quality of the product. There are watchmakers like Richard Mille lead hugely lavish lifestyles with models, race cars, speed boats and movie stars. Not Dufour. Thanks for reading and sharing! Much appreciated.

    Ahhh, a lesson to be learnt here that the best don't need to advertise. The ones that do, typically LVMH or Swatch group companies like IWC, understand that many luxury watch purchases are made overseas so a plane makes perfect sense.

    Your impressive list puts my Casio Edifice to shame. I must admit, however, to perusing the photographs of impressive watches on flight magazines on my business trips. I wonder why they always appear to advertise there, since flying is no longer a luxury by any means? Good to know what makes you tick, Dean. :-)) #3

    Indeed @Ken Boddie, but not just the Swiss, but the Germans (Lang & Heyne, A. Lange & Sohne), but also the Brits, (Roger Smith), plus a number of highly skilled watchmakers in Russia (Konstantin Chaykin), Japan (Hajime Asaoka), Ireland (the McGonigle brothers) just to name a few.

    To him who has ears to hear - Toronto Zoo

    Since I had the Tamron 150-600mm attached, I tended to zoom in on details of the animals at the Toronto Zoo.

    This is the left ear of a White Rhino. I was fascinated by the textures of the skin of this massive creature.

    Thought-provoking post. I think that 'mean girl' inner critic is even worse for women than it is for men, even though plenty of them struggle with that vicious inner bully too. Maybe we should ask ourselves why our 'mean girl' is so much more powerful than our 'kind girl' (or guy). And of course we do want to find that happy balance between self-compassion and personal responsibility. There are a lot of excellent TED talks on these, by the way...

    I think for so long that we have been told what we can share on social media sites such as - LinkedIn, only business, Facebook - personal - that beBee will be able to provide, as it has for me, a refreshing look at what a holistic site can be that celebrates all your interests. In my short time on beBee, I've been able to continue my focus of helping both job seekers and employers, talk about my family, share my mommy blog, express my love of food, Star Wars, super heroes, music choices and so much more. As with other sites, I have been able to "mute" content that I don't want to see and I think this says a lot already about how @Javier beBee and @Juan Imaz have envisioned a user experience to be. So far, I have "virtually" met amazing people on beBee and hope that continues.

    #45 The formula for relevant content has been around for ages, and it takes multiple elements. I think Jim Murray's idea of removing the hive size IS a good idea, along with @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian's suggestion about making it easy to delete posts. The third part is allowing the owner/moderators to have the choice of pre-moderating for the hive as a whole, or on an individual basis. That's basically what LinkedIN had and it worked effectively for groups of over a MILLION subscribers. Then it's up to the moderators and the "market". As one other suggestion to @Javier beBee, I think that periodically hives should be monitored for inactivity, and moderators notified that unless there is activity the hive will be deleted. Having (potentially) 200 different hives about, let's say, HR, is counter-productive when 198 of them are dead. Prune. Close

    21/08/2016 #46 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #45 I don't think removing hive size is the answer. We can choose 3 and size is definitely a deciding factor. I would prefer that Hive managers have a way of easily removing non-relevant posts en masse. A notice should also go out to the poster letting him/her know they wasted a hive choice. Mind you, even that option can lead to misuse.

    I've also seen some of my posts get shared to hives that make no sense for them. I'll admit that I don't see a solution here.
    Jim Murray
    21/08/2016 #45 Jim Murray
    The structure is sound. The main issue is always going to be with the quality of content and how that content is directed by its author on the site. This is going to be rocky road because some people I know of are posting content of questionalbe relevance into hives based strictly on their size hoping to just capture eyeballs. That will get worse as the choose bloggers start showing up. Perhaps the solution here is to remove the size of the hives form public exposure and make that information available only upon joining the hive. As for the quality of the content, that's even trickier because, well everybody thinks their own content is the bee's knees, now don't they?

    #34 @Javier beBee - as one of beBee's earliest supporters in the U. S., dating back to the interview of you on LinkedIn that Jim Murray and I did for our "HE SAID HE SAID" series, you know that I've been a fan of Affinity Networking and your expressed desire to see meaningful content permeate the platform. And the development of beBee thus far is impressive. However, there is a long way to go before the concept is fully realized, and a lot of work remains to be done by you, @Juan Imaz, @Matt Sweetwood, @John White, MBA, and the rest of the beBee crew in the course of bringing beBee to the position of prominence that it has the potential to occupy. Not to throw cold water on the parade, I trust that you and all working for beBee will not be lulled into complacency by the stream of laudatory comments that will undoubtedly fill this thread. But will instead drive forward to assure that beBee reaches its full potential and does not end up, at best, the literary equivalent of Muzak, or at worst, simply more noises in the Internet. I also hope the a significant number of user bees will do their part to keep beBee from developing into a pit of Insipidipity. My best wishes for further success. I am rooting for you and the beBee team. Cheers!

    #8 #11 "The Patient" equates with the essence of human dignity. Being 'patient' with the revered and respected 'patient' allows me to derive a hypothesis as to pinpoint the cause of suffering, in order for me to heal it as best as I can. And if I maximize my capabilities and the sweet, kind, suffering 'patient' is Still Suffering? I am shocked, dismayed, disappointed yet I hide it from 'my patient.' For now, we have a physician: patient relationship, and it is special, beloved, treasured, beholden, sacred. If I can't help 'my patient' any more, I send her to a specialist, and follow-up again to make sure she 'made it' there. I follow her progress all the way, without stopping so that I know what she eventually is found to have as a diagnosis. I do this with great 'patience' also, so that if I see another 'patient' with the same symptoms, I shall have gained the knowledge and perhaps can make the diagnosis right away, I will and have always fought for 'my patient' as she is not just 'any' patient. No one can change how or if I fight for her. It is my duty.

    #8 #11 Ha. Now, I say the word, "Honey." It could be taken many ways, right? But what if I whisper it into one's ear? On this spectrum, lots of emotion exists. And if I say, "Bees make honey." It is a fact, a pragmatic one without emotion. And if I say, "I love honey!" with an exclamation point, then both the pragmatic object + the elated emotion are evident. It is the same with the word, "Patient." Think about it. When I say the word, 'Patient,' what is your first thought? Patience, peace, understanding, and Merrian=Webster's #1 hit is: 🌺Simple Definition of patient:
    🌺: able to remain calm and not become annoyed when waiting for a long time or when dealing with problems or difficult people; and
    🌺: done in a careful way over a long period of time without hurrying (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/patient ). I can't speak for other doctors, as 🐝"I've given up trying to figure out how other people think.🐝" For me and my medical school class, "❤️The Patient❤️" is an endearing term with the connotation of "empathy for the longstanding human suffering."

    " We are not the ghosts. We simply have a ghost in our machine - a glitch in the system." I love your quote @Gary Sharpe. As the other saying goes, I am not my disease. Ive always looked beyond a person's illness because it just comes naturally to me. Maybe working in health care helped me to see beyond a person's illness? And possibly it could be due to my own illness, i dont want a stigma attached, like you, I want to be treated as the person I am, not as a fragile person. Its great to spread this awareness because I'm sure many don't realize they are reacting in a manner thats uncomfortable for the person? Thanks for sharing this!

    This Idea Could Revolutionize HiringI had a revelation! Why Can’t  Every Recruiting Process Become Efficient Like Physicians/ Insurance Company Credentialing? Give me a second to explain please.Tough to admit this but I solidly have been applying for jobs for a month now. A few weeks...

    #14 There are ways to figure out compensation to maintain database. It makes no sense completing your resume so many times.

    #12 Dana, this exists in the CAQH database for medical doctors and mskes the process simpler. Currently, it takes hours to comple forms, take personality assessments, plus grammar and math tests. Applicants need a faster process.

    #10 Brian, maybe it is time for a change now. When I apply, I am required usually to download my resume. The automated systems miss or transfer informstion incorrectly, which means editing. Most of the time that takes about an hour. Then, watch a video or take a test. Maybe they are testing our patience and attention-to-detail? I would rather spend time on their tests.

    Since entirely too many companies use Taleo x, KineXa, Brass Ring as their ATS vender, why is it not standardized at the level. I.E. I have lost count the number of times I have filled out a Taleo x web form. NOW, if I see a company uses them, I do not even bother with their organization - no matter the position, their interface is a waste of my time.

    #7 Diane, Youth Unemployment is usually double the headline figure, and in countries like Spain and Greece, is close to 50%.

    #6 Dean, experienced need help sooner, especially since their resumes are so much longer.

    #5 That is on the roadmap @Diane Schultz, but in order for a startup get traction, we need to start off in a niche market. The concept works well with graduates, but for experienced hires, we also need to factor in extensive work experience, but we do intend to launch Quimojo Pro for experienced hires in 2018, and Quimojo Interns next year.

    #4 I would be happy to provide it..Can you adapt for everyone? I have a graduate degree bit know of others without that need help too. If we could standardize, that would be magnificent.

    @Diane Schultz, Good article. I had a similar idea about 4 years ago, and 2 years ago I quit a lucrative career in finance to build "the single largest searchable database of graduate job seekers". We are in launch mode finally and start touring US universities and colleges at the end of this month. Will post some articles here soon. Would love your valuable input.

    #1 Thank you Qamar. We just need to find a company willing to do it. I am happy to be an advisor or make suggestions to them. I think that it would expedite the hiring process so much.

    Thanks for your words and I totally agree @Don Kerr, but I'd like to go further into the question "Who are you?", I'd say that I am my parents, my brothers and sisters, my children, my city, my country...
    Probably we tend to think we are an individual entity, and maybe some people are, but most of us are an ecosystem formed by people, situations and events which mold our personality, and any change on that ecosystem can produce a totally different answer to the question "Who am I?"

    Ok... I digress... time to go to bed! :)
