    I did not select any specific hive, it will find it's way where it wants to go. I merely wanted to throw my card on the table so as to start engaging a little more than what I have done so far. Lately, I have been a little absent as you may know. That is another story all together. My circumstances have prevented me to be as sociable as I have wanted to be. Over the last few weeks I have finally found a place where I can operate from to my satisfaction. I will expand my views of either side of the line soon, and regard this entry as a more realistic"opening move" into the beBee Community than what I did in my first article a while ago. My new design is a different theme of a concept that I have used before. #7

    It is my way of depicting how to choose a path in the chaos of a complex world Gerald. We define our own moments of reality depending what filter we use at the time of observation. I appreciate your comment. We are often very quick to jump to conclusions. A picture is worth a thousand words. Thought in itself, creates conflict. Hence the question whether I AM neutral or not. I sincerely doubt if others are.#5

    @Milos Djukic.Great summary of a needed book..Scientists and young are not working in ivory tower to isolate themselves from the current of events demonstrated by social media.In their research process whether they are seeking to generate a new idea or trying to validate their hypothesis they often need constant,instant and real time information.During the development stage of their case study they should also have focus and self-monitoring to detect any new related trends,then analyse it very quickly and accurately in order to forecast the changes that may occur with dizzying speed.The more the researcher keeps a balance of his or her engagement with social media the more they will be able to create,communicate and deliver the output of his or her research.

    This is very interesting. Back in 2008 i concluded that there was no doubt in my mind China would have car companies to rival Toyota and Ford. Chinese cars back then were shoddy rip offs. They have improved tremendously. There are a few contenders like Great Wall, but I saw promise with BYD who were producing electric cars. Legend has it the Chairman of BYD bought a Mercedes S Class then told his workers to disassemble it to see how it was built. They refused to take apart such a beautiful new car, so he got out his key and scraped all along the side of the car and said, "now do it!". BYD has since been at the forefront of lithium battery, and electric car production. Their cars are still pretty bad, but getting better. Warren Buffet has had a stake in them for a while now. I believe he bought at around RMB 20, it went up to 90, and is now around 46. With the development you mention above, I would suggest BYD is a good buy right now. Seeing how Japanese, and now Korean cars have improved, I have no doubt Chinese car makers will produce high quality cars within the next decade.
