    @Vincent Andrew, it's been absolutely brilliant! Pogba starting tonight as well! We need a world class centre-back (I would have loved to have seen Varane) but all in all we're moving in the right direction. Mourinho has brought some much needed charisma to the club! I'm very happy! :-)

    The first 5 fixtures may change yet (down to the TV schedule) but I would imagine the manager would like a dominant start, so it's possible.
    Mark Murray
    01/07/2016 #9 Mark Murray
    He left because he felt (at the time) he was a better player than Paul Scholes. It infuriated him when SAF brought Scholes back out of retirement. In hindsight, maybe SAF should have given him more opportunities but the past is past.
    Vincent Andrew
    01/07/2016 #8 Vincent Andrew
    #7 Pogba will be a good buy! How did United let him go in the first place? I think United must be quick off the mark when the season starts. We usually start slowly but I'm hoping that will change. Looking at our first five fixtures, do you think we can get at least 10 points @Mark Murray?
    Mark Murray
    01/07/2016 #7 Mark Murray
    He's made 2 decent signings so far, if he can get Varane and Pogba and offload 80% of the dead wood currently in the first team, the good times could return in the next couple of years. He has a big job to sort it all out but he has the expertise and the clout to improve the squad. Fingers crossed he can do it! :-)

    #2 @Kimberly Lewis The only reason I don't think it's worth being overly concerned about the feedback is that, by and large, it's too general to actually help a writer improve, at least on social media. If you look at most comments, it's usually of the nature of "good article", or something as general as that. That's one reason why it's nice to have an editor (for books) when you publish with a major book pub. because you get word by word feedback.

    Great tips indeed. Not sure they would all work for me, but will try. Right now I only write when I feel like it, when something grasps my attention and than I´ll have my poem ready in 10 minutes flat (I only just starting to write a more blog like style - have been writing poems for quite some time though but never published anything as they are quite personal to me).

    #9 @Dave Rynne, again, correct that what works for me, may not work for you, but I think spending time writing and commenting online dissipates one's creative energy. There are usually far more hours in a day than there are productive writing hours, and to spend potentially productive writing hours in dribs and drabs often becomes an "excuse" for writers so they can avoid honing their skills via actual writing. Just an opinion.

    #10 @Jason Attar (tagging here is as inconsistent as on LInkedIn) Writing a book is one of those kinds of things that can be a lot of fun, or one of the most onerous things one can do, and first time through the process there's a lot of learning that can go on as you try to find "your writing groove" or routine -- what works for one book author often doesn't for another. Good luck with it. The first step is starting.

    This is a good look into one prolific writers process. I probably spend more time responding to comments because I don't have as many readers, but I imagine it would be cumbersome when your audience grows. I'd probably still engage more, but that's OK.

    #2 @Kimberly Lewis Feedback is a good thing, but not all feedback is equal, so maybe it's best if one is selective. Simple pats on the head don't say much, neither do "It sucks" comments. I find most feedback in comments to not be that valuable. I'd rather have more detail from a few people that I trust than worry about online stuff.

    Good suggestions @Robert Bacal I'll take it from the expert! There's just one thing, to make sure you are being read I think it would be ok as you say not to focus on likes or shares, but I would definitely try to put attention on feedback since some of the comments will make writers grow and also try to write something that of course inspires themselves but also will be read by followers and keep them engaged.

I think Germany will come out strong and go the distance, whether they win it or not, I don´t know but I see them in the Final!

I loved his use of a piece of sand for every thousand years. I bet he blew the audience away because they probably weren't expecting such a long and well thought out answer. He was iconic- yes because of his career in boxing but also much of what you wrote about that we never heard much about over the years. Your points on diversity- I couldn't agree more.

    this one man made more of an impression on society then the Beatles Managed as a collective, a true inspiration and an amazing man. he was a wordsmith, a poet, a fighter (not just in the ring), a leader, A Hero. He will be forever missed and forever remembered in history! He fought Parkinson´s for years and now he finally gets his peace. Rest well Sir, your fight is finally over.

    I´ll finish on a Spoken poem by the man himself, quoted from before his first championship fight with Sonny Liston in 1965 after winning 19 straight fights to get the title shot.

    "Now clay swings with the right, what a beautiful swing,
    And raises the bear straight out of the ring,
    Liston is rising and the ref wears a frown,
    For he can't start counting till Liston comes down,
    Now Liston disappears from view the crowd is getting frantic,
    But our radar stations picked him up somewhere over the Atlantic,
    Who would have thought when they came to the fight,
    That they'd witness the launching of a human satellite,
    Yes the crowd did not dream when they laid down their money,
    That they would see a total eclipse of the sonny"

    RIP Muhammed Ali, the greatest of all time

    Nice post. My mom had the opportunity to meet him briefly back in the day while working at the St. Regis Café in New York. She always says his hand was bigger than her face!

    Had no idea Austria had a stamp made in his honor, do you own that one @Oliver McGee, PhD, MBA, CFRM, AFWCI? It’s incredible. Thanks for the effort that you put into this nice tribute to this great guy!

    #47 @Kevin Pashuk ( with CC to Javier @Javier beBee and @Federico Álvarez San Martín) - For the record, beBee needs to remove the "remove" button from the right side of the mobile comments screens, or at least provide a confirmation step or better an "undo" feature. Right-handed scrolling down a list of comments makes it too easy to accidentally remove a comment, then not recoverable, as happened to me in your case and several others. If engagement is important, this is an important issue. For having read a piece and made a sincere comment (not just a one line quip or an attaboy), it is disheartening to accidentally remove that comment while looking at the author's reply.

    Indeed, to be on beBee is an exciting experience and to be simply interactive is rewarding. With little engagement, there are pleasant responses. ..truly, one feels motivated because there's always someone who's responding to your posts and writings. Devoid of junk, vague content and noises, beBee is plainly impressive, interesting,encouraging and sensible social networking platform.

    Let's strengthen beBee to have more bees, more hives, and appetizing nectar (content). After all, good content and diverse audience matter! :)

    Most excellent idea Jeffrey, that is what beBee is about and I'm sure we have a ton of sports fans. Imagine the Olympics! We could really rub in our wins! (kidding) but it could make for some fun ribbing between nations! Not many places in social media would I believe we could have fun with it.
