Comments22/06/2017 #18 Savvy Raj#15 First of all I appreciate your gift of assimilating thoughts and often interjecting the much needed practicality of purpose in them @CityVP 🐝 Manjit This is a gift you have honed so well in practice.I value these words, 'Thinking is the gift. Things are merely gifts'.Indeed and often we place our values on mere transactions than the power of transformations. I value your comment deeply not only because you sensed along 'the two moments' in these verses but also for the power of transformation in the thoughts in the verses presented simply in the strength of the interconnects. Thank you for your heartfelt reflections21/06/2017 #15 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI like the way you injected the Power of Three into your poem, which created two moments that added power to your thoughts.
The meaning we choose to perceive,
The connect we choose to establish,
The intention we choose to deduce
The dance of polarity,
The duality of nature,
The death and the birth
In a society that is constantly finding new ways of selling us things we don't need, the value of personal poetry is that it gives us something society badly needs, which is ways of thinking. Ths is the difference between a gift and merely a gift. We celebrate the interruptions more than we treasure the gifts. Thinking is the gift. Things are merely gifts.
For this thinking gift I thank you and so long as beBee continues to develops as a transformational gift rather than as a transactional gift, then the future for us here is a great space for those who prefer transformation rather than just transaction.21/06/2017 #14 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador@Savvy Raj, this is an exquisite piece. I was drawn with the first 2 lines, which are thought-provoking and so true.
Simplicity dwells in the complexity
And complexity is just tangled simplicity
Your writing is like a fine piece of art.21/06/2017 #13 Savvy Raj#10 @Joel Anderson thank you for mentioning this first stanza . Must share, I felt I was on to something that I wanted to express as I was writing these lines and just went with the flow. And actually couldnt stop till the last line.:) I am humbled by your continued appreciation and support to my writing.21/06/2017 #12 Savvy Raj@Sara Jacobovici.
Thank you for your generous words to this post .
While all creative work is unique in approach and we can respect the ingenuity of the individual .... if only we dig deeper we see how they are assembled in the strength of interconnects in the interdependence.
This particular poem stirred in my thoughts as verses while reading @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBees' buzz and actually patterned itself in a single sitting where words surged after reading your post. So I am honoured to know you both equally enjoyed this piece and must share that I was and am filled with deep gratitude in this endeavour.21/06/2017 #10 Joel Anderson@Savvy Raj The more I read this, the more I just love the message.
"Simplicity dwells in the complexity
And complexity is just tangled simplicity
In an untangled arrangement.
The very arrangement is a fodder for imagination
Simple resides in the complexities.
Complex is just simplicity turned upside down.
A curiousity in exploration
Every path is infinite in possibilities."
Keep making a difference.21/06/2017 #7 Sara JacoboviciI am truly grateful to be part of this inspiring interaction @Savvy Raj. Or its architecture as @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee describes, 'buzz on a buzz on a buzz...." . Your poem is exquisite! You are a gifted writer and artist. The line which stood out for me after this first reading is, "In the momentum of thoughts/The complex gives birth/To new pathways in the patterns."

Comments22/06/2017 #10 Joel Anderson@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee "My mind is rotating chaotically." Might there still be an order and answer in that statement? The picture is a linear progression of words, that for most, will read it linearly and choose or pick out importance based on what one sees or what one perceives as they read. A triangle is useful in depicting things but is generally shown as depicted, with the wide base at the bottom and an apex at the top. I have an upside down pyramid philosophy of leadership and life. What if you inverted it, so that it was upside down and what was important now was placed at its apex. The strength and stability of the pyramid would rest on what is truly important. For without "it ," whatever "it" is, the critical piece in the equation is missing. In your depiction and discussion you identify three important pieces from the picture: bravest, strongest, happiest. These may be the key factors, but to be honest I think there is something important missing from the pyramid and the linear depictions. The "first." For it is the first that is changing or influencing the initial state. From there, with an understanding of who or what is the "first" then one could use a triangle, a linear diagram, a ven diagram, a circle etc...to create some sense of order, in the progression or regression of it all? After all, it is the "first" who is apologizing, forgiving and forgetting. Then we go back to your statement, and read it backwards. In order to influence the chaos in a rotating mind (yours), then either it is you, we, me that will help change the key factors and initial state to bring you and us to a new now and new order. And then the combination of "firsts" among us continue the cycle and keep moving forward. Just a thought.22/06/2017 #6 Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SAThanks for this thoughtful buzz @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. I wondered if the 3 states/ qualities of being could be realistically represented as overlapping circles. What "super quality" would then lie in the overlapping area where all 3 intersect?22/06/2017 #4 Sara JacoboviciDear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, your work inspires and challenges. I am in the draft stage of the buzz you encouraged and challenged me to write which includes the comment and question in your concluding paragraph. It never ceases to amaze me the diverse directions the individual processes lead to; yours, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich and mine. And just as you are open to incorporating the posts of other bees, I have found myself doing the same. What a fertile environment for learning and thinking you are providing Dr. Ali. Thank you.22/06/2017 #3 Tricia MitchellHmm initial thoughts @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee is to replace strongest and bravest with courage or courage'ing (as an ongoing process), as courage is the highest expression of the gut brain.
Leading with our heart brain - desires, values and connecting to others is its prime functions - the highest expression is compassion. Lead with your heart and let your heart's desire guide you to partake in joyful dancing. Compassion'ing and courage'ing can give you the flexibility to travel down any path.
The heart has fewer neurons but is the leverage point for change (for without the desire, there is no joy, we simply go through the motions).
I posted a video about healing the bodymind by neurologist Dr Rob Scaer, who mentioned movement & ritual to release trauma. Movement is vital to the chakra system & our wellbeing & those are often gentle practices like yoga, tai chi & qigong that are the 'strongest'.
For me, following a roadmap created by others who've simplified a complex system & tested it using behavioural modelling means I dont have to! Lead with the heart, aligned with the head and gut, & then follow your passion to create joyful living ☺
Thank you for bringing my awareness to your latest food for thought, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee22/06/2017 #2 debasish majumderout of the three state, i.e., happiest, strongest and bravest, i wonder how one can identify in what state he is belonging! however, intriguing post indeed sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! enjoyed read and shared sir. thank you for such wonderful insight.

Comments21/06/2017 #9 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWonderful read @Paul Walters! Congrats on this piece being featured in the July Edition of Turkish Airlines!! Wow, the view from the roof top restaurant looks breathtaking. Spices... can you buy and fly with them? I'm just getting over the stomach flu and I must be feeling better because I became hungry while reading this. Stunning photos and history of Istanbul. My son visited Istanbul in 2005 with a group from RIT. He enjoyed his visit!21/06/2017 #6 CityVP 🐝 ManjitTurkey is a very interesting place if only because I have noted how young Turkish people have adapted to social networks and so I can only judge from my own biased perspective of very enlightening and pleasant encounters.
While the expression "Young Turks" is generally a positive, a growing expression is "Mechanical Turks" but this is not about Turkish people, it is about the research industry who use a form of cheap labour to conduct research.
Erdogan does not much help matters politically speaking but I must give credit to Turkish people who recognize the value within Turkey of a secular culture. When I combine that with the rich history and geographical beauty of Turkey as outlined in this buzz, no wonder @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee also speaks fondly and with respect for the place he has often visited in a business capacity.
One day I hope to visit Istanbul, hopefully not as a part of my aging farewell tour but while I am still relatively a "Young Turk" :-)21/06/2017 #5 Gerald Hecht@Paul Walters What an immature fool Ive been--it's time for me to " " " "man up" sir...why? I'll tell you why; nobody twisted my arm --allowing the architectural/cultural splendor of this storied bridge between Asia and Europe...the echoes of Byzantine whispers in the calls to prayer --all , all to pass me by while I foolishly misspent my youth laundering currency and smuggling freshly blackened Poppy Sap for a quick buck and a 24 hour coma in a nameless Opium Den; awakening to find my "vision of a hostess without equal --in both grace and beauty in fine silks" ...gone; along with my cufflinks and fine Corinthian Leather wallet from the peerless Ivanka Trump Line --the embodiment of my highest aspirations at the time...A philosophically empty obsession with "style" as an equal to Plato's Ideal, and Bagdahd's extension of Pythagoras..."Al-Jabbar"; Analytic Geometry; the key to the spheres...I am ashamed still; for I was a fool!

✴🌐22/06/2017 #39 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#35 Hi @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador, you may have hit the nail on the head. I wrote a buzz about a month ago or so about my Pre-trip Anxiety, or as professionals call it, Pre-anticipatory anxiety. I was fretting over many things. My bulleted list above barely touches what I was fretting over. Some things were extremely personal that I was obsessing about so I didn't share those fears. Once we hit the road I thought phew.. I can breathe now. Well, Anxiety and Panic have a wait of lying dormant and rear their ugly butts when they want to, usually when your in a store, a restaurant, crowd of people or with others you just pray wont see it. My grown children know I have anxiety and panic disorder. I think they understand to the best of their ability but I still think at times if my anxiety is present during a time that may not be convenient for them (meaning trying to plan something fun) and whats fun for them may feel extremely anxiety provoking for me, well.. I think they get annoyed but in the end, I pray they do understand. My son has become more patient with me.
Just for the record, I am lucky that most of the time I am able to control it or it's not present. It's the unpredictability that sucks bad. Thanks so much for your in put Franci!!22/06/2017 #38 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#29 @Jennifer 🐝 Schultz, thank you for sharing your story! I'm glad that you've learned to 'let it happen' or embrace it? :) I agree, from what I'm learning it does go back to childhood or even past experiences later on that we never dealt with. The brain is a strange organ and there is still so much they don't know about it, this is why they lack full proof ways to treat many mental illnesses or as I like to call them, brain illnesses.
It's sad when people profess to love someone don't take the time to try and educate themselves and at least find out it's real even if they have a hard time understanding what they see the person experience.
EMDR works wonders in helping people to figure out what their triggers possibly were and a good therapist will take it from there and help their patient to retrain the brain to react in a different manner. Thanks so much for your input Jennifer, appreciated!22/06/2017 #35 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorHow unfortunate that so many people don't understand anxiety. Your trip could have triggered your episode, and I feel anxiety brings on anxiety - meaning you were concerned about having anxiety while traveling which built up into an anxiety attack. It's difficult to live with, especially when you can't control when it is going to strike.
I am glad you shared your experience because you are inspiring to those that have anxiety attacks. I hope you get the help you need from your therapist.22/06/2017 #33 Gerald Hecht@Paul "Pablo" Croubalian @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher and EVEN COOLER...DARPA (as we speak) are doing preclinical work in rodents --along the lines of that film "INCEPTION"...shared dream/augmented reality buddy system environments with various models of "anxious/phobic rats" and their non anxious ( measured by HPA Axis Neuroendocrine phenomena such as cortisol levels, pro inflammatory cytokine reactivity, etc, Autonomic Nervous System Reactivity.

The tactics that actually work are pretty much guided Pavlovian..GUIDED .BY A PRO systematic desensitization , etc..
Major Airlines used to (they stopped funding it back in the 70's to increase profits ; had excellent guided programs -e.g., -for specific flying anxieties ) entire ground School--> with the actual flight crew and drinks and snacks and sitting behind the controls--> little by little working up to more realism while monitoring autonomic systems to know when/if to back off...for heights...similar idea...stand on a phone book, if tolerated by ANS--> move to two phonebooks...---> etc, ALWAYS BACKING OFF IF ACTUAL AUTONOMIC FEAR (not conditioned PHOBIA"kicks in. It can take months and progress varies by therapist, amount of generalization, it won't work if a person is already tolerant to benzodiazepines and the phobia has "figured out" how to break through. Ultimately, the principle isn't as complex as it "feels". We cannot die in a plane crash unless 1) we are in a plane and 2) it is crashing.
The apparent problem is that actual Autonomic Fight/Flight FEAR --feels the same as a Conditioned Autonomic PHOBIA.But it's not the same...extinguishing the latter is time consuming and if it's generalized extensively and "benzotolerant" complete success may be impossible; but I know it works because I've done it to many people. Even Pavlov's dog didn't salivate to the tone forever...if yo stop giving it food after the tone, they stop drooling a week.22/06/2017 #29 Jennifer 🐝 Schultz@Lisa 🐝 Gallagher - thank you for sharing your experience with anxiety. There are so many people who just don't understand - and living with it myself - it takes time for you yourself to understand it. I believe that anxiety is rooted in past experiences in our lives - that maybe we did not deal with at the time - that manifest itself into a panic and fear that comes later - many times out of nowhere - almost like "fight" or "flight". As you shared, you can be having a wonderful day and then BAM - it hits you. And it will try to ruin your day.
For me, I have learned now to recognize the signs of when I am anxious, and just let it happen - I used to beat myself up and tried to hide the fact that I have anxiety. Now, I respect it. That may sound weird. But, it is true that anxiety comes to those people who have been strong and struggling with something for a long time - and you reach your boiling point. Other people don't understand and lots of times, don't want to take the time to understand.21/06/2017 #28 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#26 It really isn't a joke, I wish it was... It would be easy to deal with if it were just a feeling of being anxious that is normal when people encounter life issues that cause them to feel anxious.
I can relate to your friend, I actually kept my illness silent for years because the few people, including those closest to me would say, "Lisa, everyone gets anxious, you just need to ______!" I learned early on that people really did not understand the complexity of it. I hope your friend has a better support system now @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian.
It took my husband years to understand that this is real. He gets it now and he's my biggest advocate now. Again, so true.. you can no more tell a person to buck up than you can to tell someone to just walk on a broken leg, it doesn't happen. Thanks for your comment Paul, I really appreciate it!

Comments22/06/2017 #6 AnonymousThe USA generates 25% of the world's GDP. US population is about 5% of the world's population. That means 5 times the GDP per head of the rest of the world. It is hard to understand why there is poverty in the US in the face of that.
Poverty means neglect of medical care. First to go is dental. This impacts ability to socialize and advance in the workforce.
Poverty means food is discretionary and the kids are malnourished. Eczema and similar problems are common.
Poverty means exploitation by loan sharks and ballooning debt. Leading to interactions with the Justice system.
Poverty means unstable, poor, and overcrowded housing. Exacerbating all of the above.22/06/2017 #5 Lisa 🐝 GallagherTruth! Thanks for all the info @Lyon Brave. Many people were not born to be leaders or given the skills to be one. No one should be penalized in an industrialized nation such as the USA. No one should be homeless. There will always be some who prefer to be homeless and that's more than likely due to mental illness, schizophrenia in particular. I've had discussions with many about the minimum wage in our Country. Some feel it should not be raised, others feel it should. Personally, I think it should be raised but with conditions: Higher minimum wage for people over age 21 and for companies that employ at least 50 but possibly 100 people plus. Those who employ over 100 people can afford to pay it. Something has to change because it's not healthy, lifespan is altered, it affects mental health... all of these issues equate to higher healthcare costs that may be coming out of the pockets of others. Everyone should be able to enjoy the pleasures of life if they are working. Some people work two jobs and are still considered low wage earners annually. Thanks for posting this buzz.22/06/2017 #4 debasish majumdercandid insight indeed @Lyon Brave! i guess, whether developing or developed, majority's like always in misery, whether financial, social or political. they are the bait of the class who are in the corridor of power and power regulates everything, whether poverty, misery as well misogyny, causes of all disharmony. however, lovely buzz. enjoyed read and shared. thank you for the buzz.

Comments22/06/2017 #14 Ian Weinberg#6 I would enlarge a bit upon what @Pascal Derrien has commented. Indeed all professions have their bad eggs, mine included. But the problem with the world of coaching is that it remains an unregulated profession, globally. Candidates are not screened, there is no universally accepted curriculum and no pre-qualifying evaluation. There is in fact no licensing and ongoing evaluation of standards. This is of great concern since many of these unqualified individuals, unscreened for potential personal psychopathologies, are engaging with clients and working with very personal emotional issues. I have personal experience with this issue, since I have been training coaches for several years. I have needed to become very selective as to who I train and accredit. I refer you to an article which I wrote a while ago in this regard - see https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/drowning-in-snake-oil22/06/2017 #13 Ian WeinbergThanks again @debasish majumder for reminding us of the bigger picture of life. It is unfortunate that it takes the dying and the dead and indeed any great loss, to bring us back to a sober and authentic reality.

As I mention in point 8:
Social Media marketing is about building relationships through engagement and relationships take time.
That is why I recommend a minimum period of 90 days of significant social media activity to gauge reasonable results.

Comments21/06/2017 #6 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeI immensely enjoyed reading your buzz @Victoria Toumit. You wrote "The key factor of finding your life purposes is self discovery"! I couldn't agree more. The beauty of your buzz is that you share your personal experiences and how you found your own purposes. I shared the buzz because it is credible, liable and has a purpose. This resonates with my own writing a buzz on purpose "Purpose and Performance"
I want to thank you for sharing such a well-written buzz.21/06/2017 #4 Praveen Raj GullepalliHey Victoria, why do you wanna stop folks from coming to see India? ;) It is a cultural-experiential pot pourri anyone could learn a lot from y'know! :)
But seriously, you are correct at many levels. And sometime you need to get out of the world of stereotypes to come face to face with yourself. Your real self. It is more like finding the right space for that encounter than finding the right place or person. Geography really doesn't matter all the time. Sometimes genuine guides and mentors do help clear the cobwebs and dust from the mirror.
Many times it probably is the thought of ''living one's dream or talent'' being insufficient to ''keep the dream/talent alive'' for life - that keeps folks in the safer confines of a typical existence. Responsibilities, security, etc take precedence. Tie you down sorta. It takes a different kind of person (or an appropriate set of circumstances, good or bad or ugly) to break the mould and break into realisation of true potential.
Do come to India sometime! ;)

I was too busy with my kids--didn't have time. Then we all got involved together. Always insisted that my sons had computers, so they grew up with them at a time it wasn't fashionable. Back then, my oldest played Pac-Man religiously. People were appalled. But it cured his finger agnosia.28/02/2017 #49 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Javier 🐝 beBee, glad this was brought back to life again.

Comments08/04/2017 #11 debasish majumderlovely insight @Sara Jacobovici! i enjoy the minstrel being reverberated in stones and fossils which have its own language and surely required inquisitive mind to ponder on their language to comprehend the history of the past as well the brand of early civilization, like Indus, Mesopotamian etc. which are still pertinent. so i guess, language largely depend on the five senses to evolve with co-ordination. however, nicely narrated post. enjoyed thoroughly. thank you very much for the share madam.05/04/2017 #7 Gert Scholtz@Sara Jacobovici Minstrels, metaphors, marketing, Michael Michalko... what can I add? Only this: Marvelous post Sara! "Metaphors permeate human thought and action. As such, becoming conscious of their use, and applying this language in a stimulating and meaningful way, will provide communicators with the means to creatively express their thoughts, ideas, stories and narratives."05/04/2017 #6 Sara Jacobovici#5 Always good to hear from you @Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA. I appreciate you bringing up the complexity of the communication. We can't simply engage in a particular way and assume we will be heard as we expect to be heard. Awareness is the key. Thanks for your response.05/04/2017 #5 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAYour quote, regarding minstrels, raises an issue many involved in content writing are unaware of; and this unawareness can easily cause issues with your branding. In social media marketing actually 'tone' and 'voice' are 2 different things. However both are extremely important and go hand in hand. Voice includes such things as one which excites, is lively, cynical, professional; it's an adjective. On the other hand 'tone' is a subset of your voice; and is used to directly appeal to your specific audience or a situation, for example. Essentially there are many voices for your brand and many tones which refine that voice. Thanks for this interesting and spot on article, Sara; it's appreciated.05/04/2017 #3 Sara Jacobovici#1 Never ceases to amaze me @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee that we could be writing at the same time on a similar idea, in this case about stories. Read your buzz and recommend it to all. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/a-hive-of-ideas.05/04/2017 #2 Tausif Mundrawala"We all are minstrels", rightly stated by you. Tales and fables which gripped the attention of readers are been considered masterpieces of all time. I couldn't resist myself reading and commenting on this buzz as the image and content was very interesting. Thanks for sharing it with us, @Sara Jacobovici05/04/2017 #1 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee"We are not only story-tellers, we are also story-hearers".
"Michael Michalko states that "creativity requires looking at the world in a different way. When we think metaphorically we utilize our ability to imagine. Our imagination is given expression through the nonverbal and verbal language of metaphors. The metaphor is "out there" to make it possible for us to sense and experience things in an unexpected way".
Thank you @Sara Jacobovici. We are on the same wavelength. I wrote in my buzz of today "A Hive of Ideas" the following. People love stories. They love sharing them as well. They love stories that move them emotionally and cause their tears to flow. So, it is storytelling, story listening and story sharing.
I think this enogh to show my appreciation of your buzz, which I shared.
- Producer20/06/2017Ever Expanding Multi-billion Dollar Market for Male CosmeticsThere is an increasing demand and presence of male grooming products in the cosmetics industry. Just 10 years ago there was a gap in the market for male beauty products, thus leading brands are taking the opportunity and catering for men. Last year...
Comments21/06/2017 #23 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#21 Whether these products are tested on animals or not, the premise of cosmetic existence has a cruelty to it. Body image issues, societal prejudice, escalating the cost of living for no other purpose but our own fear of not meeting new social expectations, unnecessary creation of chemicals that don't factor in disposal or harm to environment, so end up as a part of the water cycle. Never mind that injecting chemicals into the social ecosystem ultimately have led to afflictions that are considered unintended consequences of this "social behaviour", like cancer.
Then there is life turned into image and the kind of society Guy Debord called the Society of the Spectacle. A fixation on viewing something normal like balding and turning into a disorder. The rise of allergies because we have become so manic about cleaning that we over-clean and hurt our own immune system. If this was a Woody Allen comedy I would actually laugh.
The whole recipe that goes along with this that ultimately perpetuates group-think. Everyone has a right to use this stuff, but why should I lose a job because I refuse to apply chemicals on me or I pay for believing that growing and aging naturally is my way of life. It is great that we can create a business out of lifestyle but we now have a health system creating new lifestyle drug categories and people are having cosmetic surgery at great personal pain - because the pain of being rejected is much worse for them to take. Advertising works because fear works - this is 20th Century thinking writ large by dinosaur thinkers.
If there was systems thinking involved in this I could rest well assured, but to exist in a world where we don't question these things and not speak up is the world we are actually living in. That is the consequences not of using cosmetics but of the branded and conditioned life and not even recognize that our very lives have becoming product - that we are now the product.21/06/2017 #20 debasish majumder#17 can you see the sub-atomic particles in your naked eye? it the brain which only can perceive. precisely the human brain, because they inter prate since inception of the progress of civilization. i just shared my observation and experience with little wit, not compared to that of you like mighty personalities. forgive me for my arrogance to emphasis my views. but, science deals with truth and observation, not to be explaining it with a pejorative notion. thanks for sharing your valued comment sir.21/06/2017 #18 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#16 @Gerald Hecht I don't think that happens widely in most professions, that is the realm of either the digital elite (it is amazing what stock options can do to the neurons) or we are also taking about here what happens in Justin Bieber entourage territory.
Of course we at the mundane Terra Firma level of lived reality, one where HR may be the chief arbiter or perhaps only gatekeeper of our economic intent, at that level what is viewed by HR as a Justin Bieber level brand is often really a Pee-Wee Herman in disguise. Who knows, the success we achieve is more often going to find it's way into an employee newsletter.
BTW good to see RES IPSA LOQUITUR! being quoted in what I call with absolute my usual charm, your Hechtic contributions. "Long live the Hechtics!" (think here the dynamic perspective of the heretic and not a linear representation of the hectic).21/06/2017 #17 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#15 Debasish according to this BBC Earth article it seems to refute what we may think creatures in nature exercise http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20150206-are-there-any-homosexual-animals but seeing a primate shaving and pruning their own face, now evidence for that is harder to find.
It is difficult for me to see an animal engaged in a facial. Now it is true that consciousness gives us a huge edge in life, but how it is that consciousness led to us living a branded existence?
This firstly demonstrates just how much of the gift of our own consciousness we waste day after day and secondly should lead us to ask what drives us to this kind of behaviour. That behaviour is, for me, an example of our animal self - because tribal behaviour is our animal self - not our deepest human self. That small percentage of our being which is truly human, now that is worth spending considerable time with and actually represents the wisest possible utilization of our human consciousness.
I also empathize with Gerald that we can be given a brain that has capacity for God like powers but then as a researcher or a scientists with this gift, are then settling for experimenting with compounds, because some man wants his cheeks puffed. After all if the most reasonable paying job in town is spraying male perfume into rats eyes, then that is brand reality right there.21/06/2017 #16 Gerald Hecht#13 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit yeah...my new benchmark is to see if anyone is being given "Pink Cadillacs" based on performance --that doesn't happen in science, lol; and Keith Richards version of "manscaping" (it's funny how my autocorrect turns that into "man-aping") hasn't seemed to have backfired: http://www.vogue.com/article/patti-hansen-rock-steady
RES IPSA LOQUITUR!21/06/2017 #14 Gerald Hecht#13 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit I take important to remember that there is no actual scientific/biomedical basis (other than human scratch test/desensitization for allergic reactions, etc.) for cosmetics FOR ANY REASON.
Giving some of this stuff a name like "cosmetology" can (in the mind of folks whose eyes are already covered in dust) can lend the impression that THIS really IS A SCIENCE; Nope...instant red card!
For both women and men; health/fitness/hygiene is one thing...cosmetics are either 1)a broken crutch for sentients with broken self esteem or 2) a "Halloween Thingie" for people who (for whatever reason) wish to do some entertainment or imitate a mating ritual conducted by (usually males) individual members of non-human (usually wild animal species) and usually under neuroendocrine control because their survival requires specific estrous cycles, as opposed to human menstrual cycles and concomitant options.
Testing Cosmetics as if they were testing a promising Alzheimer's Therapy is analogous to testing potential doping agents as legitimate exercise physiology.
In front of many people who don't work in the field and don't know their ass from their mouth 👄 in these techniques.
I don't believe this is an IMHO situation either; we all know this.21/06/2017 #13 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#12 When it comes to physical cruelty what the cosmetics industry have done with testing cosmetic products on caged animals can be considered as a "cost of progress", one which we can turn a total blind eye to, but I cannot turn a blind eye to it, it is not a part of my constitution packaged within me which we like to describe as "humanity".
To me a caged animal does not necessarily have to be the only example of animal cruelty, but also a human resources mindset. If anything I put a call out to organizations who consider themselves truly 21s Century to call human resources what it should be called, which is "Animal Resources".
Once we put life on that equal footing - and here less is not more when we are settling for less, we begin to realize to what extent we are a caged animal of human resources. To me the 20th Century human resources industry is a broken home and it is need of intervention and if you want to get a taste of a cruel professional culture, spend some quality time with dog-eat-dog recruiters.
Just because the human resources industry are the chief purveyors of what should be counted as a redundant mindset, does not mean that we should be willing animals consuming their dog food. When we see things called "employee engagement", we should substitute those words with "lab-rat engagement". If my thinking is the difference between me not getting a job and having this caged mindset - keep your job, no wonder people call HR - "Human Remains" - and in this cage we remain product.21/06/2017 #12 Gerald Hecht#9 @Simone I agree that it's important for people to take care of ourselves; I'm increasingly concerned (I must admit) between the deliberate confusion (shareholder driven) between 1) health/hygiene and 2) cosmetics.
The first assignment I ever had in (what appeared to be a biomedical laboratory)...I currently work on getting at the key denominators underlying neurodegenerative disorders and Neurotoxicological/Neuropharmacological mechanisms underlying compulsive amphetamine and opioid self administration.
Anyway my first "job in the field looked like that type of environment...I was told to perform Druze Assessments of "Shampoo Candidates" on awake rabbits under mechanical restraint and unable to move.
Later, my first Neuroscience Animal subjects were "Liberated" by an Animal Rights group who made know distinction between 1) clubbing baby seals for their pelts or dropping 4.3 pH drops in the unprotected corneas of rabbits and 2) trying to discover the key to things like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, ALS, CNS-specific-Prion-induced-genetic-errors in protein folding, etc.
They spray painted death threats to monsters such as myself for torturing animals.
The animals that they condemned to gruesome deaths (for months) hit by cars all over campus, exposure, starvation, dehydration, death by cat, etc.
One young woman in leather moccasins called me a Nazi and spit in my direction before heading off to the campus food court.
I don't blame her, and her hair smelled lovely, like a dream21/06/2017 #10 Simone Luise Hardthi Juan :) great article :) and yes, it´s (still) an expanding ;) market ;) and to me personally, every men should look after his looks ;) it´s not only the "intrinsic values" that count ;) outer appearance is important too ;) Have a great day/evening today :)

campaign@work(c)21/06/2017 #8 Gerald Hecht#7 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit that actually...I'm keeping that one ...when you put that way (especially the "narcotics-narcissism " thingie)...it's not all that upsetting to me ; it's a actually a logical progression that accounts for a wide range of phenomena which are more interconnected...then I was considering...thank you...I was overly worried about something because I was tired and "tunnel visioning!"21/06/2017 #7 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#6 Look at it another way. Women wanted equality and did not want men treating them like objects. Instead men now become objects so ipso facto, women get equality. That is about the same narco-quality mindset behind personal branding. It is wonderful to know that the term narcotics and narcissism are related twins. Actually I do need to stop thinking for a mo now, because I need to practice my newly acquired cosmetically enhanced smile. Botox anyone?21/06/2017 #6 Gerald Hecht#5 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit that's a lot of information about cosmetics; I thought this was about the beautiful game: howxit in Portuguese ? o novo bonito (or something like that)...please don't tell me it was about makeup...my son is a futball fanatic, Messe was his first role model but that's because I still do a faster mile than him --but he's thirteen and that's gonna reverse soon enough... but the HgH was hard enough to explain...cosmetics?!
OMG NO...please No21/06/2017 #5 CityVP 🐝 ManjitBeing that cosmetic life is what is being sold it should not come as a surprise. If being cosmetic is what people choose, I say good for them. The Roman Empire got highly cosmetic before it finally cratered. Now if I happen to see through this cosmetic existence, it does not help me none. Each kids in our house wants that dream wedding and entire cosmetic wedding planning industry has convinced them that anything short of $60,000 for their big day is not good enough for them. Now by the time all our eight kids get married, my family will have spent 1/2 million dollars to satisfy this highly cosmetic need.
It is fine giving the kids what they want, but as other kids want to emulate and do the same, the cost over the long term in psychic terms is a steady escalation. Not only does cosmetic existence add to the cost of living, it silently increases the degree of prejudice we have - and in this arms race there are two industries that laugh all the way to the bank, the first is the cosmetic industry, but its cousin is happy as pigs too and that of course is cousin Big Pharma. Instead of moving towards the 21st Century, instead we are moving backwards to the 18th Century, when men were at their cosmetic high-point. So the lipstick and wigs come back - all that means is that it is the past reviving as it once was. The leaders of this particular revolution deserve to called cosmetic.
Trying to be David Beckham has just one little flaw to it, there is one David Beckham - the rest are just cronies and copycats - and so I say praise the Lord for all those who want to do for the next few years what Disco did for the 70's. This too shall pass.21/06/2017 #4 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorNo surprise. Men like to look their best too. Job seeking, competition in the workplace, attracting women or other men have an impact on how men feel about themselves. I think it is great there are cosmetics especially geared toward men.
- Producer18/06/2017Our Tendency to Make the Simple ComplexLive comments lead to actions and the blossoming of new ideas. Lately, I exchanged comments with @Sara Jacobovici on my buzz "Simple Values Interactions". In her first comment Sara wrote in part " You highlight the need for simplicity...
Comments19/06/2017 #43 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorMankind seems to make everything more complicated whereas nature plays it role without calculation.
We have a magnificent tree directly from our balcony. We have lived at this location for 3 years and while observing its changes throughout the seasons find it never misses a beat. Mankind can learn a lot from nature if we would stop, look and listen.

Indeed the transformation that the charcoal undergoes and the outcome of burying a fruit in the sand..are both powerful metaphors and great reminders about the nature of Change and letting go..as also evolution !!..19/06/2017 #38 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#37 Dear @Tausif Mundrawala- your comment reminds me of many people saying "how could I not have thought before of this simple idea!". Just if we the history of discoveries and we find that it was simple ideas that cracked the most difficult problems. In my own research I experienced this. I salute you for your understanding and expressing yourself so well. As @Sara Jacobovici says what means we are first creative beings and then thinkers. I agree and if so creativity means coming up with simple solutions.. Keep writing simply, but not simpler.19/06/2017 #37 Tausif MundrawalaThe perspective with which one views a concept has to be complicated otherwise that person won't add value to it. To be honored with the praises to solve something complex allows one to indulge in it which otherwise is very simple. Some words which we are unaware of and at first glimpse would project it as the complex word I have ever seen but on finding it's true meaning it turns out to be a simple meaning word.We have programmed ourselves to make simple complex and make our life worse than what it shouldn't be. Believe me,Sir, your buzzes allows my thinking patterns to be active to an extent which excites me. Thank you so much for this gift,Sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee18/06/2017 #36 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#32 One thing I am confident about is the quality of your writing dear @namita sinha "it shall immerse itself and disappear in the sand of time and tide". We need to remember that buried charcoal may turn into diamond under favorable conditions. We bury fruit under sand so that they may grow larger. Your comment is of this quality. My deepest respect for you18/06/2017 #35 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#31 This is an extremely valued point dear @namita sinha. I think it was @Ian Weinberg who referred also to opportunity costs in one of his recent comments on one of my buzzes. You are spot on- we have to accept that whatever choices we have we need to drop most of them. THis is a fact of life. I think that choices have sometimes a power law distribution. This means that we may have few major choices, a good number of average-rated choices and a host of small choices. We can't take them all and failing to accept this may paralyze us from taken any action.18/06/2017 #33 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#32 "The second point that comes to my mind again about human behaviour is that we don’t let go things so easily". Dear @namita sinha, Success Coach- this isn't a postulation as research has confirmed that the longer we own an idea or belief, the more difficult it shall be to dispose of it. I concur with the whole of your superb comment. I defer my detailed response for your forthcoming post. Meanwhile, please accept my deepest thanks for writing such a comprehensive and eloquent comment.18/06/2017 #32 namita sinha@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
B) The second point that comes to my mind again about human behaviour is that we don’t let go things so easily. Even if we do make a wrong choice , it’s okay so long as we are willing to take the lessons and move on..it shall immerse itself and disappear in the sand of time and tide, however normally we choose to cling to every small mistake or bad experience ,kind of overplaying the scenario to ourselves again and again igniting thoughts and eventually disempowering beliefs… which were never meant to be in the very first place.. and keep overcomplicating things to the extent of distress !
As I read the comments from other bees and revisit this wonderful post from you with stimulating metaphors .. I am sure I shall register more ideas and insights at another moment in future perhaps..but for now my mind is revolving around the above points..
and yes I shall be weaving these into a separate post sooner.. Thanks !18/06/2017 #31 namita sinha@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee Dear Sir, Ali Anani , great post as always.., and as the biggest fact about human nature and behaviour goes, “we tend to view everything from the inner lens of our own ongoing thoughts and mindset”, and my current focus is such that I can reflect on this post and the earlier one on Values whose link you have given, through the below two observations about how and why we as humans tend to complicate things and why it makes sense to have a set of two or three core values to guide us , not sure whether you really intended it this way..
A) One of the key factors we miss out and which eventually complicates matters is we don’t accept that none can have it all at any moment. In other words the very basic theory of Economics about there being an Opportunity Cost to all the decisions we make needs to be acknowledged. In any situation, when we make a decision, we choose one over the other basis our own values , and in doing so we also give up another, so its just not possible that we have it all or that we manage to be present at two places at the same time !! And that is because we ourselves place different values to different choices and options and accordingly decide the course…18/06/2017 #29 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#28 I don't know what to say @Jerry Fletcher. I omitted a graph from the buzz in which I wrote "How fruitful is it to use a map in a changing landscape"? You beat the hell of me with your actionable comment. May be I should look below my feet.18/06/2017 #28 Jerry FletcherAli, Strange Congruency: In some other Sunday morning reading this quote appeared: "The map is not the territory." The story attached to the quote was from the Second World War. General Patton came upon a group of soldiers clustered over a map. They reported that they were trying to figure out a place they could ford the Seine. He responded, "I just came across to find out what was holding you up. It is no more than two feet deep here"
Many times action beats hell out of planning!18/06/2017 #27 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#26 I agree with your analysis and synthesis @Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris. It is not this or that as it is both. We tend to favor one side (right brain or left brain, or leader or manager as two examples). It is both and tilting to one side for long times is a lopsided and distorted thing to do. Yes, we need not only dismantle things, but may be even to piece them back in other creative forms.18/06/2017 #26 Zacharias 🐝 VoulgarisEvery intelligent process comprises in essence of two distinct faculties, analysis and synthesis. The human mind has inherent intelligence (esp. if it veers away from politics!) and therefore possesses the potential of being adept at both. I believe the crux of the problem lies in the fact that we have become more focused on the former faculty at the expense of the latter. And although there is nothing inherently wrong with breaking things up into there elements, thereby increasing the complexity, if we linger there we have a problem. Synthetic or holistic thinking can help us get back to simpler forms by putting the piece back together in meaningful ways.18/06/2017 #24 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#19 @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee you wrote "I always try to get to the bottom line". In few words you said a lot. You remind me of bubbles as they always start from bottom up. The equivalent in complexity is the interactions among floor employees. It shouldn't be the other way round. Great thinking
