Comments14/02/2017 #5 Flávio Rodrigues Vieira#4 Surely, I believe that in a future where humanity will unite and mainly respect the differences, we could really take care of our land, we could be everywhere, to live experiences with nature in a plausible way, I love technology , Especially when it brings release, for example we have the 3d printer, in a future where this type of technology and access to information will bring healing and access to any kind of tool, I would like to open a company where I could build a species Of society, where the government would not intervene directly, in my country it only brings disorder and return, so I could bring social equality, and dignity to all who have the same will, to grow as a human being.14/02/2017 #4 David Disney#3 That makes sense and I get where you are coming from however, I started following you from your posts and writings, and only through technology have I found beautiful souls such as yours, as well as many others. Full access to medicine and information can only be brought by technology, albeit the cancer in that is definitely false news, a numb society, and all forms of social inequality through ignorance, however technology is such a beautiful thing that when handled correctly can completely change the world. Guess it falls back to all things in moderation?14/02/2017 #3 Flávio Rodrigues Vieira#1 #2 Sincerely, it is a social criticism of our current reality, technology is not bad, but as a form of alienation so that people are distracted while the government does not do their job very well, this image in my opinion portrays this, the technology is great and Will always make us progress in our longings, the goal of this image is to bring to light the lack of connection we have with our neighbor, generating separation and prejudices, I am the type that would like to be free to be able to join other people And build something that I believe to be a real society, imagine everyone having full access to medicine and information, maybe we would not have that glaring social inequality,13/02/2017 #2 David DisneyI'm curious @Flávio Rodrigues Vieira why you consider technology to be something to avoid as depicted in this meme. I understand it is attempting to say that technology, and the lack there of is a balancing act, however why is it that the individuals that use technology more then others are in a black cavern? Can you only live in green pastures with zero technology?

Did a similar...
Comments05/02/2017 #25 Mohammed Sultan#24 @Robert Bacal.I absolutely agree with your view.The question has to be asked according to the respondent terms.Sometimes respondents have to be taken gradually or asked the question indirectly but at the end the researcher has to make sure that they are related to the same issue.05/02/2017 #23 Mohammed Sultan#21 Thank you for your response .If you want to take a decision to change people perceptions you have to depend on more than a single view through one track thinking and one methodology.No single viewpoint is really enough to fully and properly explain and predict people's complex behavior.
Nowadays,the complexity of the stimuli makes it very difficult to depend on a traditional researcher as the issue goes beyond psychometric theories.
We may in future to rely more on clinical psychology to fully understand perceptions and attitudes variables.The limit is not in the data itself but in the researchers imagination.05/02/2017 #21 Geoffrey Cooling#19 The original data gathered was psychometric data through the recognised questionnaires, not likes and dislikes. That dataset was linked to Facbook profiles because that is where the data was gathered from. The researchers ended up with millions of inputs, that the then correlated with the activity of profile holders. This allowed them to generate ever better modelling. Just read the original article and all of your points are answered.05/02/2017 #19 Mohammed Sultan@Geoffery Cooling.First,a researcher can not manipulate people perceptions,motivations and aspiration through asking what do you like or dislike about (stimuli)? particularly in a very dynamic society of 350 millions people,not all of them on line.Second,as we are all aware the reader's is not always subjugated to the stimuli ,but to how h/she is close to the writer(ie if the researcher asked the same question in a different context or changed the stimuli he will be struck both by the similarities and differences between his perception and people choice).
Second,even if it were a reliable and valid demographic survey and representative of the actual universe, the researcher would not be able to conduct a modelling between (un related!) factors because it would require repeating the same survey to find any change in their behaviors and attitudes.
Third,people motivation can't be determined depending only on socio- economic and demographic data,but by doing motivation research associated with "words"rather than "numbers".Nowadays, people are not so motivated by statistics,but by words that reflect their behavior and feeling.
Thus,we always advise researchers to get out and talk to people .Researchers who don't get out and talk to people are not real researchers,but databasers.Data is collected by different methods depending on the purpose and the context of the study through questionnaires or topic guides that
has to be filled by them or by the interviewers after giving them a proper brief of the objectives of the study,here the interviewees should be informed why they have been asked and who is interviewing them.
Fourth,when it comes to dropping conclusions and decision making, data are facts but the creativity of the researchers lies in their interpretations and reaching conclusions.
Finally,I ask myself ;are we really need or willing to be psychonalized in the form of likes and dislikes?05/02/2017 #17 Robert Bacal#15 Exactly true zach. Most regular users won't know to do that stuff though. I figure it's not worth the hassle personally, and just treat everything I do as identifiable. And to be careful about ALL personal info, like birthdays, where I am at any given time, etc.
It's actually shocking what even regular people can find out about someone, and it's pretty impossible not to leave identifiable tracks. Unless one simply doesn't use the Internet, OR NEVER identify oneself and ALWAYS use false information. Which is pretty limiting.
THere's a point where precautions start to interfere with convenience - even blocking and clearing cookies, which is a smart thing, starts to be a hassle. And as soon as you buy something, even at amazon, or use google, you will be tracked.05/02/2017 #15 Zacharias Voulgaris 🐝#14 I'm more concerned about companies rather than law enforcements. The latter tend to leave you alone if you are lawful. The former tend to spam you and sell your data to ad companies, regardless of what you do.
I find that the ghostly add-on for the Firefox browser can be a bit of a deterrent to them though, while Orbot on a smartphone is an essential app to maintain some anonymity. Finally, if you are very serious about remaining out of reach from the trackers, there is also VPNs, Tor, and several other privacy systems...05/02/2017 #14 Robert Bacal#12 Actually, what you said isn't strictly true. It depends who is doing the tracking. Your IP address from which you send anything is recorded in numerous "places", and your computer has a unique MAC address. In theory the MAC address shouldn't be publicly available.
In fact, it's quite difficult to be untrackable. You can take basic precautions as you indicate, but you ARE tracked by companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon.
Finally, law enforcement CAN find you.05/02/2017 #13 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsIt's what I've been 'preaching' for years. I figured it out when movies and TV shows started putting particular products in certain types of show and movies. A case of: "if you'll watch this type of show, you'll more than likely buy this kind of product". Then the reality TV shows hit and made it okay for people to act out in unsociable ways. It's been a steady stream of influence that changed the way people viewed the world and their countries. The only thing they would glean from my Facebook page is; I hate Trump. It's my platform for my political views. Here I can show my personal side, other than politics. Very interesting study, will have to delve into it more deeply.
Thanks Geoffrey.05/02/2017 #12 Zacharias Voulgaris 🐝This is indeed a very important matter that we all need to take into account. However, it's not all doom and gloom (well, not entirely anyway!). Nobody puts a gun to your head and forces you to like or even read your FB wall. In fact, even the use of FB (or other information farms) is entirely voluntary. So, if you are frugal with the information you give to these companies and voice your opinions without broadcasting a million different things about yourself in the process (perhaps using an alias, like it is possible in many sites), then you have a much lower risk of being tracked. At least this way you make it a bit more challenging to find out who you are and what you are up to. So, if you really must comment on that cat video without others noting down the fact that you love cats, you have this option!05/02/2017 #9 Helena Jansen van Vuuren#8 Agreed that it will effect some of my behaviour but for what length of time....for example I may just have been to the village hall and placed my vote based on the information fed to me online.... on the way back home I meet a lady from the village - we chat - she is compassionate etc ....so maybe just maybe she has tempered my stance on a particular matter.........I have voted and the harm is done however I now call into question my actions.....and so on and so forth....we humans can be swayed in many ways....it reminds me a bit about the old folks lessons about walking tall and you will feel confident....smile and someone will return that smile....influence comes in many guises.....the on screen world demands your attention in a particular way and the body is in a set position for periods of time....maybe changing physical position can change mental position....still curious about the length of time on screen influence lasts.05/02/2017 #8 Geoffrey Cooling#7 Okay Helena, so, for arguments sake, you are a lady who has some racial hang ups but you hide it well. Racist? No not me, definitely not! However, your data shows that you are from an area of the country that is most definitely shall we say racially charged. You like some groups that could be said to be hovering on the edge. Your friend Mary posted an article about a black rapist that got seventeen years for raping a white lady, you commented terrible business. You are most definitely not a racist, then I target your facebook feed several weeks before a vote on a racial issue with stories about crime with images of black men attached. The stories are mostly true, mostly, with a bit of sensationalism tagged on. I know that according to your psychometric data that you are a conservative type and a little anxious, so I go for stories that really get your back up. How do ypou think that affects your final vote?05/02/2017 #7 Helena Jansen van VuurenAs they say....Ya well but no.....can see that quite a bit may be gleaned from online 'behaviour' and that you may even be steered in a certain direction but that is information that is gathered from a very particular static environment - more often than not - from the same desk or the same body stance and face on interaction with a screen....would be very interested to know what length of time that influence lasts and what triggers rejection of said suggestive input? I have noticed that I may well like a certain item of clothing whilst engaging with the screen but this has not affected my buying pattern in practice......there is something that changes when you move from the computer - I step outside my front door, cross the road and amble down the lane and I am a different person.....or just the other me!

Comments04/02/2017 #35 Deb 🐝 HelfrichThis is such an interesting topic to think about, @Emilia M. Ludovino. So many of the ways that we think we have free will is an illusion. Much of our behavior is actually, in some part, due to simple observational contagion.
#1 @Devesh Bhatt - you quickly and quietly asked an immensely interesting question. I can guarantee that dogs (really all mammals) possess mirror neurons. Elephants don't send their offspring to listen to teacher's lecture....
And if we think about humans, the prefrontal cortex develops last, so much of what we learn - even the most complex thing that we ever learn - language - happens naturally and fluidly via mostly mimicking.
We are reflections of the people and environment around us, as are most of the living organisms around us.04/02/2017 #33 Emilia M.

Thanks for indulging my question and your response. Appreciated 🌷🌼🌻💐 Close04/02/2017 #28 Emilia M. Ludovino#18 Hi dear @Donna-Luisa Eversley - thank you for making the question I was waiting for :). Mirror neurons are always on - except when they have anomalies such as in the Autism spectrum, in some sociopaths and narcissists. That is why I mentioned the "Wall" circumducting the mirror neurons in a way that the "mirror" only reflects what is inside of the bubble they live. Their mirrors only word inward. In Reiki, we use to say every single people in our path is a mirror that reflects back what we are. The good feedback is always accepted, but when the mirrors reflect back what we don't like and accept us we tend to be judgmental, critical to others. We are unconsciously triggered. It's not an easy exercise to be aware of what triggers us.04/02/2017 #27 Emilia M. Ludovino#11 Dear @Cyndi wilkins you just nailed in your first sentence - Perhaps those "ugly faces" we see reflected in others are, in truth, conflicting parts of ourselves. We continually point fingers and place judgment when we should be more focused our own issues we choose to ignore. If we all took this "opportunity". Great thread of comments between you and @siraj shaik. Thank you for your support and sharings. Have a blessed weekend!04/02/2017 #24 siraj shaikLike some of those a wish sparked three decades back "if I can, why not generate some employment (not much focused to make riches, but in return for a happy meal). During my tenure tried many times from investing finances from my own.. Earning from my job and spending initially focus was generating 10 jobs (during early 1990's) reaching as of today thousands of potential jobs (which are being overlooked past 10 years). In journey learnt to live on split meal.. And as of recent realities after draining from pocket abandoning thoughts looking at the real best practices. Someone said "it's tough to do good and workout towards contributing for others happiness, carry humanity by common person either kills themselves or leave them in poverty". No worries for those who are tuned to live on a split meal. That's life.04/02/2017 #22 siraj shaik#18 think on why's and you have the answers. Any ways sharing my opinion as a common person similar to those on public transit. This message shared these often past 1990's (first over a discussion with east Asians in south India, after hearing from them about their experiences from across the world): We have seen some best practices certifications required to accomplish or from specific top 1k or 10k colleges (institutes/universities). Why businesses are failure or successful (in today's terminology why start-ups fail or success)." Once got opportunity to interact with some Chinese team, who were interested in knowing more on unique concepts and were willing to promote me as well as try to connect me to investors T&C upon relocation to china.. Yeah this was during 2004, they were much anxious and without hesitating they wanted to be part of team to overcome hardship, hurdles, difficulties and struggles just to support and establish concepts successfully. But were overlooking and ignoring the coming recession and crisis to come by, as per them "it's about a bit more than a decade" and but were not ready to consider my point "the successful boom factor bubble was ready to burst within sometime making it to vanish in thin air". Everyone know this and whisper or discuss within but don't reach to share with high end because again it's "what's for me, there are experts/consultants/authorities/managers/so called leaders (various posts)/ and.. so on" flashes within every human and inhumane nature by default because all want little or more riches, that's called "money matters".04/02/2017 #21 siraj shaik#16 Point to ponder.. how the term "leader" is being misused. Give a thought (pull info prior to half a decade to back into from centuries).. on what's "Leadership" or "Leader" .. Not the definition of past a two or three decades "a certification accomplishing over a questionnaire answering some questions banked in with MCQ's of 2500.

Sorry I could not resist asking. I kept your post to read tonight 😁. Bedtime stories

Anyone who follows tennis knew that a Federer and Nadal meeting at this stage of their careers was the makings of a classic. Usually the hype does not deliver but here are two of the greatest ambassdors for their sport and the two titans in terms of records - it is phenomenal to think that Nadal is one grand-slam away from overhauling Pete Sampras. Anyone who watched Pete Sampras in his prime would have asked if there ever will be a better tennis player than him. Remarkably there was and there was not just one better than him but two. At the Australian Open of 2017 these two met and I forgot to set my alarm clock - but in this age of 24/7 media - I did not otherwise miss this tick of history.
The question of retirement depends on whether age has become the detriment. Sometimes it becomes a danger as it as proved in dangerous sports such as boxing https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2002/jun/11/boxing1 Muhammad Ali being one of those sports legends who paid a heavy price for lingering in a brutal sport. Joe Louis's story is even more incredulous, he had to fight beyond what was safe for him due to reasons that are astonishing. In World War II Joe Louis contributed to the war effort and in any story, his contributions would be lauded as patriotic and beyond self. That is until the IRS reviewed his file and demanded he pay taxes on the earnings he gave to his country - for the bureaucratic reason that his contributions were not recognized by the IRS - Louis had to be paraded around the ring.
