Writing

+ 200 buzzes
Writing is a medium of human communication that represents language and emotion through the inscription or recording of signs and symbols. In most languages, writing is a complement to speech or spoken language. Writing is not a language but a form of technology that developed as tools developed with human society. Within a language system, writing relies on many of the same structures as speech, such as vocabulary, grammar and semantics, with the added dependency of a system of signs or symbols. The result of writing is generally called text, and the recipient of text is called a reader.

    #71 you know your words resonate with me @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. My youngest daughter is in Germany now. May be also the ease of communication has added to my peace of mind. But mostly due to Sara is a mature person to depend on her. In no way we shall have 100% peace of mind. However; I don't worry at the opposite extreme either.

    #70 It really is a great feeling when we can sleep peacefully with no worries @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. I used to worry about my daughter a lot when she was a teen and in her early 20's. I did lose a lot of sleep then because I know females are vulnerable. Happily, they are both married and raising their own children and doing a great job! I'm glad you are very content :)) I'm sure your daughters all feel very special with their dad who is a good man with a good heart.

    #56 I sounds like you and your wife had to create a fine balancing act with each other and raising your daughters together since you both did come from different backgrounds. From everything I've read, you've done a great job raising your girls together. I've often heard it can be hard for a man when he is surrounded in his home by all females ;-) The few photos I've seen of you with your daughter(s)?, I could see the love!!

    #25 couldn't agree more @James Olcott and @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#29 . we were very fortunate to be in our own business, so hubby took off pretty much a year and our kids were a year apart and we took them everywhere: we were very lucky! not many have that chance (cost us a fortune, but was well worth it). to have the father so delighted in his babies is pure blessing!

    #61 Instead of location-location-location in marketing I would say position-position-position for social studies. So, dear @Lisa Vanderburg I agree with your finishing lines "Parents never get it 100% right, but starting from falling in love with your baby really helps"! The starting position is falling in love with your baby. Yes, because love at this early stage is felt. Respect comes later as the kids grow up and mainly for the sons.

    #9 #11 if it's of any help, i think good parenting just naturally means that parents adjust their ways according to the wont of their children. my brother has a 21 year old daughter that still sits on his lap in an act of natural love. i sure a hell would not have done that with my dad! boys tend to be more risk-takers; my boys were throwing a football when one slammed hard enough into a tree to scratch half his face off. it took every ounce NOT to run up and help him; he was about 14 and would hate it when i did that. my hubby said 'ouch...that'll smart' and then i could offer him a tissue ;)
    but all this sort of behavior comes naturally and the game keeps changing as they age; it normal. Parents never get it 100% right, but starting from falling in love with your baby really helps!

    #57 Thank you @Pascal Derrien for your comment raises new issues. Can parents even if they are "perfect" deal with the issues and threats such as addiction? Social jealousy and drive to cope with the new environments in which grown up kids once they leave home are enormous. Societal pressures may lead even kids who were fortunate to have great homes to yield sometimes. Much more exposed are kids who were not that fortunate.

    #8 apologies @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, my arm's in a cast so typing is going to be basic. to answer your question i must first say my comments related to how NOT to allow a child to grow to a healthy and functional adult, so the 'daughter effect' refers to well raised women. on that assumption, i'd assume that men who serially are less inclined to hire a women of equal qualities to, say, another male applicant, have a problem with women.
    Pascal Derrien
    14/11/2017 #57 Pascal Derrien
    I think your questions are relevant with the caveat that it is probably and only applicable when parents are fit for parenting, dysfunctional units don't necessarily carry self awareness or have any appetite to entertain theoretical values as they are way too busy dealing with addiction, mental health or any other issues that life is throwing at them yet I guess your points are valid ... :-)

    #53 As usual, your comments have their special flavor @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. You share examples from your own experiences. Therefore we believe in what you share and get moved by it.
    Let me share some of my own experience. My wife is half Circassian. They traditions are different from us. In their societies a girl must be treated like a queen. She must be given love. In contrast, the boys must be horsemen, manhood is of prime value to them. A man must show great respect for women. I have three daughters. You can see the attachment they have for their mother because she extended the same to them. I don't have a son and so would not be able to tell how would she have brought him up. However; I see the value of that "layer of love" covering the skins of the beloved. It has some drawbacks. My daughters are sensitive because they thought people are like mother. They got their disappointments, but learned fast the reality and adapted.

    #52 Thank you dear @Ned McDonnell. Your comment is superb. Not a single human is free of defaults. The defaults of the parents could be "transmitted" to their kids. Your step-wise approach is only logical "Parents shape us and they have their drawbacks, some permanent which create those stumbling-blocks with which each of us has to manage, one day at a time".
    You remind me of a post that I wrote sometimes ago in which I asked if human were born out of clay wouldn't they suffer the shortcomings of clay? Sometimes we see our parents as angels; they are not. However; I must add that the parents had more time to attend for their defaults than their kids.

    It's true, boys and girls do differ. I have to say from birth my son and daughter differed greatly. I worked when my son was growing up, went to part time with my daughter, eventually staying home. My son was needier of my attention than my daughter. He also enjoyed snuggling much more and a lot longer than my daughter. Looking back, I truly believe my son had separation anxiety because we had a bad experience with one babysitter.

    Everyone has their own 'space issues' too. My daughter is a lot like me, I need 3 ft of space between myself and others (just guestimating) and my son, well he's still loves to hug others he feels close to without seeming to have space issues.

    Every child has different needs. Both of my kids are very caring and aren't afraid to show emotion (my son in particular). It's odd, my son seems to be more like me emotionally and my daughter is a lot like her dad... brushes a lot off (even when I think she shouldn't), cracks jokes when it's obvious she may need to talk about something a bit more serious. She will eventually share her deepest feelings with me. My husband worked many long hours while our kids were growing up so they spent much more time with me. I raised my son with the hopes that he knew it was OKAY to show emotion and realize it was also okay to cry... I didn't want him growing up as the typical male stereotype.

    You wrote: "Babies find home the first place to socialize." Oh my gosh, yes! My granddaughter is so adjusted, she thinks her home is her palace and she is the princess of it. She's not spoiled though, I'm proud that my daughter is able to be stern if needed but she's careful how she uses her words.

    Great to see a warm discussion between two respected friends, James Olcott and Dr Ali Anani, with many other insights besides. Parents shape us and they have their drawbacks, some permanent which create those stumbling-blocks with which each of us has to manage, one day at a time. There are instances, occasionally important, however, where 'aspects' of my relationship with my father represent my not growing beyond a prism in childhood, though my father had. After a while, left unattended, that prison becomes a prison. James honoured me in two respects this week.

You were so young when you lost your mom but she left you with so many cherished memories. It appears you were both so close. I can't imagine how long it took to get past the initial stages of grieving. I love the idea of setting aside time for our moms as if they were with us in person. I'm sure you mom is always near and hears you when ever you talk to her :) This inspired me too to find a way to give my mother the tribute she deserves! Hugs Franci and thanks for sharing something so personal. It's still so fresh for me, I was brought back to a good place in time that wasn't that long ago.

    #14 Claire, math was never my forte and still isn't, so I know I didn't do well when it came to Standardized tests & math. Like you, my mind tends to wander and I always learn better with a hands on approach. I'm a tactile learner. I became a Respiratory Technician thanks to on the job training program our hospital offered at the time. It was 80% hands on, 15% book work with 6 tests in 6 months. Once we completed our last test, we were allowed to go out on our own without a Therapist with us. Best training I ever had and I absorbed more knowledge with that job than I did with my HS & College degrees combined ;-) It also gave me a lot of confidence knowing I was able to learn, retain and do well at my job! I wish more employers gave people a chance with on the job training.

    What amazes me, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, is the number of people at school reunions who've done well sticking to "normal." Maybe if "non-standardized" thinking wasn't rewarded so much, we might have more unique thinking. Unfortunately, that's not what's needed today (or maybe it is). Classic cases like Sears demonstrates how a company can fail putting its faith in upper management, then the corporation goes under, and what do they do? Take away the pensions of the workers and reward management with millions in bonuses. Thanks for reading (and commenting)#9

We’re on the sidelines, offering a cheering section to whomever does move mountains. But it won’t be us. Or our children. Or our children’s children." Creative thinking and cognitive skills.. yes! I always sucked at tests unless it was a topic that really interested me. I labeled myself as stupid when I was in jr. high and sadly, I allowed that label to follow. I'm glad I have found since, it had nothing to do with my test scores, I just don't test well on paper. Hands on is hands down for me! Very inspiring.

    If a writer can manage even just a single flash of insight in each piece he or she produces, then say I That writer is successful. The flash of brilliance in this case is your observation that, “When Manley talks about the ability to “work in teams,” it isn’t idea- building, it’s consensus-building.“ Wow!

    And how ironic that you should bring this insight to a SM platform that officially extols “like-mindedness”. For as you point out, fresh ideas do not grow in the soil of consensus (or like-mindedness).

    Another thing which can help - particularly if you don't want to get lost in the text, is to ensure you start your sentences differently - otherwise it can be very easy to lose your place and the thread of what you are reading.

    I also found when writing long posts to put break points in the text so people can rejoin later if they wish - an image or a video, but something which gives them a visual cue.

    But timing the reading time of the article helps too.

    Good tips here. One comment from an (old?) typesetter: Full justification is NOT traditionally what we see these days in word processing, which dumps in space between words. True justification involves spacing out individual letter and (maybe) adding some minor additional spacing between words -- to achieve an even right margin WITHOUT being noticeable to the casual eye. Sometimes true justification might involve removing a tiny bit of spacing between a number of words in a line to achieve the same effect without being left with the ridiculous two words plus a huge space in between that you mention.

    I agree with you, in the main. Full justification is usually best reserved for short business documents like flyers and business cards. Where large blocks of body text are involved, ragged right margin opens up the page visually and avoids overwhelming the reading eye.

    BTW, it would probably be beneficial if someday you treated "widows" and "orphans" and the importance of editing to eliminate them. Thanks. And cheers!

I remember the Tsunami, for what ever reasons I was awake when the news first broke and I felt utter fear for everyone. I don't think I ever heard the final death count, wow... that was horrible. As for the earthquakes and Volcano's, it's true, never know when mother nature will decide to open up those gates again. It's sad how many perished from the Volcano too. I hope the Mountain stays quiet for years to come. I'm sure with all the hurricanes and devastation it must have made you think of what happened in Bali over a period of years. Keep enjoying the great weather and no volcano's or Tsunami's allowed!

    As of Oct 1 at 2.00pm - no eruption yet. The magma is moving, but as yet, no eruption. We are all prepared in Ubud with masks and safety glasses (eyes are affected by the ash cloud and tiny shard-like glass that carries in the wind).

    Thanks for the blogging buzz, Paul. I always enjoy reading and learning from you about the history, culture and related information regarding other countries. For example, I didn't know Indonesia has 17,000 islands! Wow, that's a lot. I wonder how many are actually inhabited? Moreover, like many people, I recall the devastating tsunami through graphic and gruesome TV footage. What a historic tragedy for so many people.
    I really hope that the volcano you write about remains relatively inactive. However, the "Ring of Fire" is known to have so-called flare up more than other places on the planet. I tend to think that California is the next devastation zone for a major earthquake, as there hasn't been a really big one since the Northridge earthquake in 1994. http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/09/26/earthquake-thermometer-shows-la-region-is-boiling-to-northridge-level-2/ And seismologists say the Golden State is overdue to another big one. San Francisco, for example, hasn't had a devastating quake in over 100 years http://www.sfchronicle.com/news/article/How-ready-will-Bay-Area-be-for-next-big-quake-12216401.php

    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    30/09/2017 #17 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    The same geological forces that have contributed to the beauty of Bali are the ones that create terrifying consequence. I am of the Richard Feynman persuasion where beliefs in the mercy of Gods not to destroy a temple is replaced by the wisdom of the temple builders who may have located it at a lesser risk location. Yet tsunami, volcanoes, earthquakes follow their own wave or path, so the best way to combat natural forces is to design in resilience.

    It is not right that people still hold onto ancient beliefs that may preclude them from investing in earthquake proofing construction or not build a major settlement within reach of pyroclastic flows. We know from volcanic history that a really severe eruption requires readiness to evacuate, as well as using sensor devices that improve predictability of disaster.

    Nor do human beings pay attention to the behaviour and sensory intelligence of animals - because many animals begin to move away form impending tsuanmi's, it looks like that animal sense has a predictor capability that human beings have not yet figured out in terms of biomimicry. All said, Bali is a beautiful place and sometimes is human beliefs which may be a disabler of resilience building.

    The wife is currently in Central Java, Pak Paul, and so I've just planned to re-route her back to Oz via Jakarta, instead of Denpasar. This, of course, is in anticipation of a large Agunic ash cloud disrupting flights at some time in the not too distant future.

    Tales of big bangs brings me back to my many encounters with eruptions and lava flows in days gone past, but one of the most interesting was when I was living in Cilacap in 1988 and Gunung Slamet erupted some 60km away (probably about the same distance as you are from Gunung Agung). I don't remember the tremors and the minor shakes so much as the several days of darkness and the silent grey snow-like showers of fine silt sized ash, which, it appears, is highly abrasive. It got everywhere (including many orifices where the sun doesn't shine) and those who were less fastidious, ignoring advice to change engine oil, etc, ended up with major vehicle breakdowns soon after things got back to semi-normal.

    I trust you will be observing and recording proceedings from the safety of your hammock and that you will remember to cover up your gin and tonic against the intrusion of the pending grey silt. Perhaps you might consider indulging in that rare pursuit of volcahology (cocktails with a bang) which, of course, must be shaken and not stirred.

    I grew up in a Scottish village of around five thousand inhabitants and, thanks to the annual tourist influx, the second biggest ice rink in the UK.

I never had the kick ass skates you did though. We would skate on a large pond groomed for ice skating or the tennis court which was made into a rink in the winter. Good times and I had a few falls myself. Great advice, don't look back. I think if I would have looked back, I probably would have not continued to enjoy skating. Falling was especially embarrassing as a teen when guys were around. I love the premise of your buzz, well done!

    Yes, looking straight ahead is important because that is where you will go! This applies to skiing and snowboarding. I still remember the time I thought I was doing well (skiing fast and having fun) on a ski slope, and was looking out to avoid the "slow" fence near the bottom of the hill. The fences at most ski areas are more like nets, which trap things like a spider web.

    I was going fast enough to be on the edge of being out of control, and I got scared as I got closer to that fence I was trying to avoid.

    And just as I started to remember that thing about watching where you are going (go for the hole, not the object!), I crashed against that slow fence. It didn't hurt, but I was really embarrassed.

    But also a good lesson in life: Look ahead, move forward!

    "You have to keep your head up or you will go wherever you are looking.” Now that makes complete sense, @Renée 🐝 Cormier! Good for you to enjoy that sport; I cannot for the life of me stand up on skates. Weak ankles or something. But I could and can ride a horse. And I guess looking where I would be going on a horse would be really good idea, right?

    I think the only legislation pushed through was one paragraph (the bill) no kidding... and signed by DJT- allowing severely mentally ill people to purchase guns, something during the Obama admin that was instituted for good reason.

    Anyone who pays attention understands that the "art" of Trump's deals was, in fact, using the bankruptcy courts to shift the costs of the deals to his creditors. His often repeated claims that those bankruptcies did not cause anyone to lose money are pure TrumpBunk. Creditors lost money, just as surely as tradesmen lost wages.

    He is mimicking the same ugly bullshit that aided his bogus victory by attracting the same misguided fan base that tunes into something they believe is greater than themselves...Sad really...that we are living in the times where the strategy has been to use social platforms to manipulate and control the minds of those who wish to see themselves in a better light of progressive values...even if it is at the expense of our humanity....

    Insightful comments, Jim. As you no doubt know, Trump didn't write The Art of the Deal. That was Tony Schwartz, who has provided some very illuminating perspectives about Trump in recent interviews. And you're correct about not hating Trump. I despise him, but hating someone sucks out a lot of one's energy. The United States will get through this nightmare period. It's endured much worse in the past and prevailed. From a Canadian who loves Americans.

    Excellent, and very well written Jim Murray (admirably holding back). Speaking of well written, have you seen the interview with the ghostwriter on The Art of The Deal, Tony Schwartz, who absolutely regrets having any involvement with this guy? I'm surprised that the American people, after being subjected to Trump's.substandard grasp of the English language on Twitter, could believe he actually wrote a book. Here's the link to Tony's interview.. https://lnkd.in/dfYYFXS. His interview on CNN was also classic.

    First of all, @Pascal Derrien, I object to overlooking the best of all movies about Robin Hood, namely, "Robin and Marian", 1976, starring Sean Connery, Audrey Hepburn, Robert Shaw and a blockbuster supporting cast.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075147/

    Second, I'd like to suggest that societal myths are different from institutional lies. Myths inspire and actually improve life by bringing guidance and hope to the individuals in a society. Institutional lies are used basically to manipulate and subjugate the population. In the case of the Robin Hood myth, it inspires, IMO, rebellious resistance to the overbearing corruption of unrepresentative government. And it was, BTW, one of the favorites of those in the U.S. who eventually toppled a POTUS and brought an end to the pointless U.S. military adventurism is Vietnam and Southeast Asia. Just sayin', my friend. Cheers!

    #1 once as a child at a village asked the senior woman around whom we all kids had gathered "from where she read the story". "oh! from my grandma"... and back at school I gave a try to share with friends, seems no one got exited (maybe I couldn't fut forward the similar way or ??). But some could tell with perfection, often wondered how point blank some at school the biggest lie in simple way. That technique carrier personalities will be the one either in front end or back end (depend on dependencies depend). I am sure @Aaron 🐝 Skogen, those who had initiated such story might have carried high-levels of creativity which not only had capacity to move something small but nation(s) as well. And seems with tech generic techniques possibility to generate such with easy as per access to source of guides that could mould stories with automation (suggestive's). Don't you think how the grandma's storytelling became a "big think" also giving ways to make good returns. So maybe there are counter techniques to analyze truth (maybe with facility of moderable as PPPC). But one thing for sure either the results will break or build (destruct or develop). Just a common person opinions and views. Like to read (see) comment from @Pascal Derrien

    I've said it before and I daresay I'll say it again: I am just thrilled, not to mention a little awed, when a writer of the calibre of @Paul Walters reads 'my stuff', much less mentions me in the same breath as some of the incredible writers we're lucky to have on beBee.

    I loved Javier's piece too, and thought that it was not before time, although I do tend to cut the posters of inspirational quotes some slack if the quotes are truly inspirational, as opposed to trite pop psychology. I, of course, am imminently qualified to judge that - ahem!

    Ditto kittens, puppies and songs. As long as you've published them in Cats, Dogs, and Music hives, I'm going to leave you alone. If they're in IT, however, we may have something of a problem.

    I must say I was surprised to find an invitation to follow a blatantly sexual profile in my mailbox a few weeks back. I realised that I didn't really care. I'm not into it myself, since I'm here for professional growth served with a hearty helping of entertainment, but sex probably counts as entertainment for a lot of people, so I'm staying right out of it.

    I realise that I have no idea what my point is. I'm stopping now.

    I think the best testimony is the articles themselves, so I checked out an August 2016 piece about Jakarta also published by Oryx and from the first paragraph onwards a.k.a.

    "The early morning sun spears like an arrow through the buildings in old Batavia illuminating an old man hosing down the cobblestones while, across the square a restaurateur arranges chairs and tables on the pavement then pulls down a colourful awning ............"
    from http://www.paulvwalters.com/uncategorized/jakarta-a-city-where-simply-nothing-is-impossible

    Where in the eye of the beholder one see's "nice and fluffy" I see "rich and inviting". The key here is certainly not an academic treatise about travel, but a lived experience shared with the reader in a way which is virtual reality without the technology - and that is the best kind of VR - the one that stirs the imagination of our own minds. Now if people settle for less or even focus their attention at the level of branding, then it is an old verse of the self-limiting perceptions of personal branding, and again this simply exemplifies the consequences of operating at the level of sell, tell or yell, rather than stir one's own imagination and avidly seek to be shaken and stirred. So what I read in the Jakarta article is beyond brand, because the reader of that article is physically on route to a real travel experience.

    Reading of course is a great habit but imagination is what gives life to that habit and then habit is WHO WE ARE, not as a reader but as human being. So it is the next step is ours. Mine was discovering FX Harsono http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2015/01/29/fx-harsono-exposing-beauty-ugly-truth.html and we either find those linkages with virtual travel or physical travel, but what I learn here is 100% of the magic that should be travel.

    @Tausif Mundrawala, I was moved to read these words many times. The ways in which you have expressed your feelings highlights the love you shared with your mother and the legacy of her precious spirit that will live on in you for many years to come. I know that moving on will prove challenging in some ways. But remember, proudly, how she brought you to life, because that was her dream, her wish, her desire - for you to experience the joys of being alive.

    #20 Your buzz which was dedicated to your sister still resonates with me well especially the quote of Khalil Gibran. I have shared that story with my family and they have asked me to relay the message of their deepest condolences to you and your family. However hard I may try I can't remove her from memory as she was the vital part of me.

    Thank you so much for your kind support as you were one among those who consoled me during this difficult phase of my life. Thank you once again, my friend @Lisa Vanderburg

    #19 Thank you so much for your kind words my friend. I have seen people ignoring their parents just due to some misunderstandings with their spouses. I reminded them that they are losing the most precious time which should be spent with their parents. Only those who know the value of this relation would shed tears. Thank you so much for support my friend, @Pascal Derrien

    #18 My sister kept a whole bunch of photos in my room. I begin my day while having a look at them. It's same with me that before smiling I start to cry. I keep asking her, 'Mama why you left?'. Yes she was a wonderful woman. She was an exception among many. In the company of women she never chatted or back bited anyone. In fact she was more interested in watching documentaries as if she was present there. She loved animals and hated the ones who hurted them.

    Am glad that you liked this buzz. Once again thank you so much for consoling me at the time when I needed a friend like you, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
See all
