Jess + Scott + You393Turns out, selfish causes a spectrum of wildly strong emotions. Yet, when each layer is stripped away we’re left with something like this: “It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessity.” - Mandy Hale We all have the same 24 hours in a day. While technology distractions come to mind, there are other distractions that easily take precious time away from what fuels happiness and satisfaction. Whether through automation, choosing to burn the candle at both ends, nothing, or everything … each action is a choice. Each choice has a consequence. And... *Selfish is not a 4-Letter Word* Which is a chapter in @115746772512798725578's Book _How I Quit Email and Followed My Dreams_. Full disclosure: even actively working on this, as I write it a story tries to pop up and divert my attention.

beatstone2,021,104+Artists In The Plus is proud to bring you a very special "Concerts In The Plus!' with Guitar Legend +Preston Reed. (Banner Photo By +Ralf Hebauf ) +Preston Reed has virtually reinvented how the acoustic guitar is played. Reed practices a flamboyant self-invented style, characterized by percussive techniques and simultaneous rhythm and melody lines that dance and ricochet around each other, giving his music a level of excitement that is unparalleled among today's guitarists. Playing an array of guitars from acoustic to electric to classical Reed's vast range of explosively original music will forever change your expectation of a guitarist. First-time listeners find it impossible to believe that they're hearing just the one musician, in real time. Reed attacks the entire instrument in a never-ending search for the orchestra he knows is lurking inside. At full tilt, his fingers, thumbs, fists and hands at once suggest a drummer, keyboardist, bassist and several guitarists at work. The most impressive thing about Reed's technique, though, is that it doesn't draw attention to itself. His compositions are far from abstract virtuosic displays; even without lyrics he creates vivid, engrossing scenes. Sometimes the effect is almost onomatopoetic. Reed generates visual stimuli with every tweak of his instrument, thus augmenting his wordless compositions with an aura of the poetic. Each tune is a story in itself with a potent, cinematic atmosphere and an almost tangible thread of communication between Preston Reed and the listener. Reed's entry into this guitar odyssey was inauspicious enough, his path thereafter largely self-discovered. A few chords learned from his guitar playing father, a brief, very brief, flirtation with the ukulele, clandestine practice sessions of his favourite Beatles and Stones songs on dad's guitar .... and then a too-strict classical guitar teacher led to premature retirement. At 16, however, Reed heard Jefferson Airplane's rootsy blues offshoot, Hot Tuna. His interest was rekindled big time. Acoustic guitar heroes John Fahey and Leo Kottke were studied, their styles absorbed but not imitated, and at this point things really begin to get interesting because, at 17, Reed, by now precociously proficient, played his first live gig, supporting beat poet Allen Ginsberg at the Smithsonian Institute. Just getting on a train from his native Armonk in New York State to Washington was a cool adventure. And it was just the first of many, not least of which was the one which resulted from his signing his first deal with a major record company, MCA, through the auspices of his friend, country singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett. Determined to make the most of this opportunity, Reed pushed himself to go beyond the standard fingerpicking styles he'd perfected. The result was the beginnings of Reeds startlingly innovative style, with its percussive, two-handed fretboard attack, that you hear today and which has caused guitar luminaries such "Concerts In The Plus!"

Jessica Northey1,882,436Join @115263347034954886450  Wednesday October 24th starting 5pm PT! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=eDGGFu-Ok9w We'll be talking about Americana and folk music with @115355394914388821672, @101855386466968203040, @102002299339025067376, @107291158434082397409 as well as @111956683258824284439  We'll talk about what Americana music is and some performances showing difference styles! A few weeks ago, I wrote about the never-ending debate about the definition of Country Music. As tough as that is, it’s nothing compared to how one defines the term “Americana.”  In writing about this topic, I’m going to be (gasp!) honest about my thoughts – as they were when you first started hearing the term to describe a musical genre. There were several artists who had been favorites of the Country genre who no longer found themselves played on mainstream radio. Rodney Crowell and Emmylou Harris were two examples of this. Crowell had a string of top tens from 1988-1992, but all of a sudden his name disappeared from radio playlists. The same happened to Emmylou Harris following her 1988 top ten “Heartbreak Hill.” Critics of the musical format said it was that Country Music had changed – and gotten more pop and rock influenced. That is true – but, only halfway. If you listen to some of Harris’s post 1992 work, as well as Crowell’s, you’ll find some different sounds and subject matter that they weren’t doing earlier. That’s not saying they weren’t doing great music – but it WAS different than their own music that was played on top-40 Country radio just a few years earlier. So, (at least in my mind), that’s how the Americana format was born– as a place for acts who weren’t getting the commercial reception that they once had. Ok, I know I just offended several of my friends with that – but that’s my opinion. I never said that the music was bad, just different. Twenty years later, the definition of Americana is not that simple in my mind. One of the best albums of late in the format is Radney Foster’s current album, DEL RIO, TEXAS REVISITED: UNPLUGGED AND LONESOME , is a stunning re-take on his classic 1992 album DEL RIO, TEXAS 1959. The songs are the same that were radio hits back in the early 1990s. They were Country then, what changed? When artists like Patty Loveless release new projects, they get a warmer reception in the Americana format than Country – and this is by an artist that is a former CMA Female Vocalist of the Year. Granted, she wasn’t cutting Bluegrass music back in 1988 as her last album was, but the voice is still as pure and stunning as ever. But, Americana reaches far beyond the Country format. There’s tinges of Blues, Rock, Gospel, and Bluegrass that are sprinkled throughout. So, is Americana “anything outside of the mainstream?” I don’t know. The Civil Wars, a critical favorite, recently collaborated with Taylor Swift on “Safe and Sound.” What do you call that?  Part of my continuing education concerning “Americana” Americana & Folk Music Twangout with Twang Nation's Baron Lane, Joe Whyte, Heather Fay and Ryan Van Sickle.2012-10-25 02:00:0046

Yifat Cohen83,341*How the social revolution is changing the way we do business.* We all keep hearing about how important it is to engage and build relationships - what does it really mean, and what tools are out there to help us master it? When @105103058358743760661 spoke at DreamForce he saw *a vision for a future of business information systems that is entirely based on relationships.* *ENGAGE OR DIE.* In this Hangout On Air, we'll dive into the topic of engagement with @105103058358743760661   as he explains what he calls "engagement leverage." This framework bridges the kind of internal engagement you need with employees with the external engagement you need with customers, suppliers, partners and other external stakeholders. It's a simple, yet surprisingly powerful way for thinking about the way your organization gets work done.  Gideon writes at Alchemy of Change about helping companies bring purpose and technology together into a more powerful source of competitive advantage. Gideon just came back from leading a panel on engagement at Salesforce's Dreamforce Conference (now the biggest tech conference in the world) and so in addition to talking with us about the engagement leverage model, he'll also share some of what he saw at Dreamforce.

Trever McGhee98,627Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00203

A perspective on the news and campus violence from Dr. +Brian Altman
{Fictional story of the reporter}   #Merced   #Knife  

It was early on a boring Wednesday and she stumbled into her kitchen to brew coffee. The sun was spilling through the blinds of her living room window as she poured milk into a bowl of fiber and sat at a table on her high-rise balcony. She had allocated an hour on her elliptical machine and still had a piece to write for her evening show. She smoked the first of many appetite-killing cigarettes that would diminish the urge to ingest an aberrant calorie as her I-phone chimed a familiar melody that defined the caller as her boss.

Her heart pounded as she listened to his description of the situation. She found herself having to rise from her chair as she acknowledged her understanding of her assignment and had to pace the confines of her bedroom as she questioned the nefarious events that were launching her into action. Then she pressed the button that terminated the connection and tried to remind herself to breath. 

She sipped her coffee as returned to her balcony where she stared at the river that bordered her palatial apartment until her mind began to function. Then she pressed an app on her tablet for directions to the college where there was alleged to be a “shooting” and where she would anchor a national piece and smile at the cameras on primetime TV.

She jumped into the shower as visions of gun control danced in her head. She imagined The President wearing his patented sanctimonious countenance as he pontificated on the need for constitutional reform. She wrapped a towel around her wet body as she Googled the second amendment. She explored her dresser for her best push up bra to accessorize her best V-neck blouse. She drove to the studio where she had an appointment in Hair-and-Makeup where her scapula length blonde curls would be styled into a cute French braid. 

And all she had to do was find a town called Merced that was about two hours south of Yosemite. There she would be joined by the cameras and scowl her cutest scowl for the 6 o’clock version of indignant America.

She arrived on campus by mid morning, found the bridge between the campus and the dorms with a half of a dozen police cars. She did not see any helicopters, and she did not see the trucks with antennas and media logos. 

Someone told her about a student that had attacked another student in English class before running into the courtyard and attacking another student before attacking two more. Then he had ran across a bridge in the direction of more oncoming students where he was shot by a policeman.

She turned to find the best background scenery for “the shot,” one that would highlight her blonde streaks, her saline enhanced cleavage and the autumn folliage. 

“Where’re the cameras?” she asked no one in particular.
“Why would there be cameras?” No one in particular answered.
“To cover the shooting.”
“There was no shooting,” someone replied. 
“I heard a student attacked some other students.”
“The kid used a knife.”
“He killed them with a knife?”
“They think the victims will survive.”
“No one died?”
The blonde sat in her car and stared at her shaking hands that were clasped on her steering wheel. The president wouldn’t address the nation and lament about violence on American college campus. There would be no debate about guns or gun control or constitutional reform. The evening news would be about the airplane that crashed in Egypt and she would be assigned a story about a cat that was rescued from a tree.

She removed a rubber band from her purse, tied her hair into a ponytail and started the long drive home. 

I was in surgery on Wednesday, November 4, 2015 and I rarely answer my cell phone while my fingers are busy in a patient’s body. It was almost seven o’clock that evening when I learned about the incident, turned on one of the many televisions around the hospital and learned all about whatever political nonsense was eructated by whatever political candidate had stumbled into the direction of a camera. 

My daughter teaches psychology at the University of California in Merced where a “disturbed student” had stabbed four fellow students before being shot by a policeman.  But because no gun was involved the incident was not worth politicizing and I did not learn of her safety until I returned to my desk, turned on my cell phone and read her text message confirming her safety. 

Campus stabbings that don’t result in deaths don’t sell enough commercial time to be worth labeling as a story. 

Men and women who work in suits, sit in boardrooms and make entertainment decisions don’t deem college campus stabbings to be sufficiently sexy to warrant prime time coverage. 

The NKA – National Knife Association – must have a stronger lobby than the NRA and can block a constitutional amendment to have background checks before someone purchased a steak knife. ___A perspective on the news and campus violence from Dr. +Brian Altman

Epic ... +Mac Vogt 

What is the magic of escapism?

I saw this piece and my imagination wanted desperately to push through the window panel, and to live totally, separately.

There's a texture of tragedy to it, like unrequited love. An emotional burst of possibility in dumb tension, an aching. An ahh, to leave this world and to walk along this balcony of grass and stone, to breathe in the deepness of the blue in the sea, to turn the corner. It's more than idealized, it flashes inversion (an aversion?) to this world, these elements of our world, rearranged, from the ground up, and never exactly real. Oh but how wonderful would it be to feel the silent sun highlight our outlines, to explore to the sound of seagulls, to meet the people of this village, to hear their stories. To find years passing and to find the place changing. To find myself changing with time in this place.

What triggers a response to escapsim?

Totally personal right. Or maybe, in a cynical sense, it's not. Just get some coherent color scheme going, enough weird architecture, and appeal to sense of season, sense of height, and you can induce escapism in some percentage of people. How depressing is that?

(We have a whole industry oriented around the question.)

If we were to list all the ways these kind of pictures appeal to wonder, we'd be left robustly unaffected by this kind of thing. Right?

(The illusion fades by the speed painting.)

But then when something outside that understanding hits, some whole thing else, something breathing that awful magic, we'd be absolutely bowled over in its taste.

(G+ is chock full of it.)

I was a kid when I was exposed to the whole worlds of videogames. Does this make me vulnerable to a genre of escapism? Everything we eat programs us.

I ran around the fields of Hyrule, and let me tell you, that place existed. It was real. Of course it was. I was enthralled. Turned into adult Link DAMN! Damn. Stayed up at night wondering how the world I grew to love would be forever changed, and I eagerly dove back in. It simulated an escapsim within the escape.

I have an adult brain now. I find myself disappointed so often with media. Like this picture I posted, yeah, I got a glimmer of magic, but I also can't shake (and wouldn't want to) the recognition of this as kitsch and lame. Too pretty. Drained of all pathos. Uninteresting. That sort of a thing. I know this sort of thing. I see now what it's trying to do.

Is it ruined for me?

I could replay Ocarina of Time, but I know I'd find it dated and find my blatant celebration of nostalgia weak and boring.

Is this a bad thing?

I wonder... To pivot, am I interested in virtual reality as merely a way to make this sort of thing fresh again? Is this what technology in media seeks to do? If we are presented with a novel, larger resolution, we then tend to dive deeper. A world tends to pop if generated by technologic progress.

But it's like a hit of drugs. It wears off. It doesn't work forever. We can't enter anymore, and have got to find another way.

The CGI of Mad Max: Fury Road diminished the real stunts for me. The sense of danger, deflated. Because I seen it before. Because IMAX 3D is lame -- I know what VR is.

And... escapism requires the new, the new, the new, but it also requires an easiness about it. Can escapsim ever be challenging?

Is it essentially corruptive?

This is a something I posted 2 years ago today and is still relevant

And is the post that went with the picture.

Take A Walk Through The Landscape of Your Business

Today, take a walk through the country of your business, as if you were someone entering it for the first time.

Look at each page of your website or blog with fresh eyes.
Click on one of your offers, and follow the path your clients walk to enter more deeply into the culture of your business.

Are the natives friendly? Do they speak your language? Are there familiar landmarks along the way? Is there a clear path you can follow? Do you feel respected, loved and welcomed as an honored guest?

When the country of your business is in harmony with your values, your clients and customers will feel safe there. And that safety and stability are the ground on which they can stand when they come to you with their vulnerable hearts; when they offer you their trust.

Which qualities are at the heart of your business? Where do you express them most fully? What steps can you take, today, to align the culture of your business with your deepest values?___Thanks +Heather Bond

The Meenakshi Temple of Madurai, India ... "The iconic Meenakshi Temple is located in the ancient city of Madurai in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Located in the heart of the 2,500-years-old city, Meenakshi Temple is dedicated to goddess Meenakshi, an avatar of the Hindu goddess Parvati — the consort of Lord Shiva. It has long been the focus of both Indian and international tourist attraction as well as one of the most important places of Hindu pilgrimage. For the people of Madurai, the temple is the very center of their cultural and religious life.

Meenakshi Temple was originally built by Kulasekarer Pandya in the 6th century BC, but the credit for the present look of the temple goes to the Nayakas, who ruled Madurai from 16th to 18th century. The reign of the Nayaks marks the golden period of Madurai when art, architecture and learning flourished expansively. The riot of colors, however, is a more recent addition.

The temple complex covers around 45 acres and is surrounded by 12 gateway towers called gopurams, the tallest of which is the famous southern tower that rises to 52 meters. Each gopuram is a multi-storied structure in the shape of a steep pyramid, covered with thousands of stone figures of animals, gods, goddesses and demons painted in all colors of the rainbow.

There are several shrines inside the complex dedicated to goddess Meenakshi, her consort Lord Shiva (also called Sundareswarar) and their son, the elephant god Ganesha. Both the Meenakshi and Sundareswarar shrines have gold plated towers whose tops can be seen from a great distance. There is also a sacred water tank, several halls and innumerable Mandapas. Scattered throughout the complex are staggering number of sculptures and statues of gods, warriors on horses, battle scenes, and even characters from the mighty Indian epic Mahabharata. There are an estimated 33,000 sculptures all over the temple.

The temple wasn’t always so vividly painted. The original structure was probably unpainted granite. Then people started painting the sculptures because they wanted the temple to look colorful during big events and festivals. Although it’s pretty to look at, the mindless renovations over the years have deposited thick layers of enamel paint and cement over the ancient structures, hiding the beauty of the original stone sculptures which lay underneath.

Thankfully, for the last few decades there has been a growing awareness on the need to preserve the original beauty of the temple. Several restoration work had taken place in recent years with the intention of restoring the centuries-old Meenakshi Temple to its original state. ..."
