Social Media Sharing Thursday Pick

A Recap

Perceptive Readers, welcome to Social Media Sharing Pick Thursday.

We need to be frank high-schoolers.
Did you just say, “I only need to be me, and who is Frank anyway?”

You know what, we are going to have you open for Sinbad, you keep that up.

Now where were the rest of us?
Ah, being frank about social media.

This is going to be short and sweet.
Social Media has always been designed for sharing — so share.

When the articles and events have a hyperlink with a featured image; that is supposed to be shared as well. What company, musician, singers, doctors, entrepreneurs, and models do not want to see their brand shared? Let’s place impetus on for years since the beginning, this is what technology and Social Media Sharing has been all about sharing and still is with online chats from time to time! It is used for customer service as well! What a great use of technology!

Welcome Students in December 2019

Welcome Students to December

It was only yesterday, it feels like, I was welcoming students and teachers to September.

It is now December and on the 21st of this month, the season of winter starts. If some of you are still walking around with only your favorite cotton short sleeves t-shirt that states, “I’m an original,” at the bus stops, some of us may say to you in 30 degrees weather, does this mean you have to keep your original thoughts on ice because you are so cool?

Let me give you sometime to let that last statement sink in.

How about another second or two.

There you go.

Well, during this “season” there is a lot of gift giving. Whatever and whenever you give a gift, in principle, it should always be from the heart without feeling forced.

It is one thing to feel guilted into giving, it is quite another  to be compelled or motivated by love. The latter is the best option. Something we picked up from a “Good Book”

Be safe, Be Kind, and Be thankful always for loved ones. Best Wishes,  the Product of Culture website.

Social Media Sharing Thursday Pick

Dear Perceptive Readers, welcome to Social Media Sharing Pick Thursday.

We need to be frank high-schoolers.
Did you just say, “I only need to be me, and who is Frank anyway?”

You know what, we are going to have you open for Sinbad, you keep that up.

Now where were the rest of us?
Ah, being frank about social media.

This is going to be short and sweet.
Social Media has always been designed for sharing — so share.

When the articles and events have a hyperlink with a featured image; that is supposed to be shared as well. What company, musician, singers, doctors, entrepreneurs, and models do not want to see their brand shared? Let’s place impetus on for years since the beginning, this is what technology and Social Media Sharing has been all about sharing and still is with online chats from time to time! It is used for customer service as well! What a great use of technology!

Yes untold numbers use it as designed above.

If you like (appreciate) it, then share it.
If the image appears with the link you share, then this all a part of the article title and link presentation.

If a company does not want you to share their images that automatically appears with the link, then on their websites they can turn such hot linking settings off. IMHO with a picture saying a thousand words, you will lose marketing value by doing that though.

Meanwhile, welcome to Social Media Sharing Thursday Pick. Place this in your notification calendars! This feature will run through November and December!

Instagram Sharing Joel Clemons

One of the biggest problems in relationships that will create unhappiness is the feeling of entitlement and ownership. A healthy relationship is based on cooperation, commitment, trust, equality and fairness; it’s about choosing each other as partners and being in service to the other, not demanding service.

Appreciation for Reading is Great

Appreciation for Reading; You hear people talk about appreciation quite a bit. They appreciate each day with a measure of life’s vitality.

All the ones in their circle who enrich the value of everything they do just by being around them. It’s like if you are baking a regular tasty pound cake, here they are to place the icing on it —maybe some fruit as well. Strawberry cheesecake comes to mind.

Some just got an idea for a treat or dessert for after dinner tonight.

Appreciation for Reading is Great


Just like dessert, reading after dinner is also a great treat for your mind. Sure, you may be thinking about taking a nap depending on the meal size. Or it could be a television show time. When you have used your brain all day, it is well deserved ‘veg’ out time you looking for in the evening.

No one is saying you deserve less otherwise.
Hence, these are still thoughts on how your appreciation of reading can be enjoyed in the same amount of time as any meal.

High school students, how long does it takes you to eat a bowl of fruit and cereal in the mornings?

Sidenote: Cornflakes and bananas always come to mind for many adults.
It goes without saying, some students seem to inhale their breakfast within seconds! Well maybe we better move to another meal for the time frame example.
How about lunch? Less than twenty minutes you say?
Okay, what about dinner? Less than 30 minutes are your thoughts?
Sounds good

So somewhere between a few seconds to thirty minutes you can read something that will be like icing on the cake for your mind. Do you have any hard cover or paperback books in your abode?

The library will also have something for you to hold between your hands and eyes as you periodically sip on hot cocoa and read.

Topics you are interested in other than math in the evening could be just what your mind is craving for a few moments.

What do you like to read about?

Can you find a few minutes to read each day something you know will enrich your mind with the taste of a dessert feel to it?
Who knows, it may still be technical or spiritual.
Hence, the question is put forth again. Do you have a few moments of time each day to feed your mind on a book?
Have a pleasant day and keep your appreciation of reading.

Coffee and Fun Conversation


This information is from a 1983 song titled Yah Mo B There by James Ingram and Michael Mcdonald. Yah is a shortened form of Yahweh, which means God’s Name in Hebrew. So the title literally means “God will be there” and is interpreted as “God be with you.”

Welcome Students in November 2019

Welcome Students in November 2019.
Greetings high schoolers and the adult teachers as well. This month some will put on the weight their bodies burned off as fuel all summer long.
This may be family and friends time for many of you. Sleepy time you say?
Well, Daylight saving time in the North America continent ends on November 3, 2019. What does this mean?

Follow these instructions for your clock:
At 2am go to your time piece or clock
Turn the dial or watch hands back to 1 am.

You most likely will not have to do anything for your phone devices. They should update automatically.

Also, you don’t really have to stay or get up at 2am to do this. What makes me chuckle is that quite a number of you teenagers will be up anyway.

Just be aware you will gain an hour of sleep. Do you have to wake up early on Sunday, November 3, 2019? Then you may go to bed an hour later or just enjoy an extra hour of sleep.

One more thought. How are your grades doing? I truly hope you are being successful with the majority of your exams. Who knows, maybe all your grades are 100! Kudos to you. It means you are seriously working on your foundation — a foundation for the future.
It is a wonderful thing to have our minds get the basic fundamentals down so we can solve many equations given enough time.
In closing out this welcome students in November letter, here at the Product of Culture website, we wish you a safe and fun month. Thanks for visiting me here and sharing what you like.

Kind regards, pocbooks.com

Art and Music Journey in The Mind

Since there is a time for learning, exercise, and work; there is also certainly a time for ( art and music ) play.
 
Playing for children often involves high energy of imagination and talking to one another.
Talk about high energy, how about the teenagers? What does your daily routine look like?
In schools around the world, do they still teach art and music courses?
It is expected that when you join a band you will learn music. However, there was a time in some elementary and middle schools you had a certain part of class room time to learn about the basic skills of playing a flute.
The same went for art.
It was not until high school you had to start picking specialized courses if you ever wanted to exercise your creative flow in that way during school hours.
 
The above is a conversational piece with a coffee shop vibe. As you know, conversations by their very nature are meant to be enjoyed. Conversations do not turn into arguments when there is the spirit of enjoying each other’s company.
Some of us have and will continue to enjoy our discussions over art, literature, and music.

Did you know this about art?

There are three classical branches of Art

I hope these interesting facts will show you what is innately known. That the mind can imaginatively see art in everything and make it materialize literally overtime.
Observe the skills required to proficiently create the following branches of art on a professional or occupational level.

Paintings

Shown in office buildings, restaurants, and homes. The owners of these establishments are dressing up their walls to be inviting and warm to set the tone of the environment. The environment is just as important to understanding what the prospective and perceptive clients are looking for; as well as their personality input. For example, a farmer will probably pass over placing huge buildings to decorate the walls in his home. However, an entrepreneur with dreams of owning a building that size just might say “Exactly what I was looking for!” All the while, you will peak the farmer’s interest with people smiling, lakes, and camping scenes. Do you have such skills with a paint brush?

Sculptures

Are 3 dimensional carvings made into stone, wood, and casting metal. It takes a precision of accuracy and patience IMHO like no other in the arts. It is not an easy thing to recover from the mistakes made and can be quite costly. To this day, Michelangelo (see Sistine Chapel) , has to be one of the most renowned Italian sculptures of all time. Though he was commissioned by Pope Julius II to paint the Sistine Chapel, he made clear in history that he is a sculptor more than a painter. Imagine that? All the same, how did this man create all these stone gems to perfection? He possessed the skills of precision accuracy and patience. Do you have such skills?

Architecture

As referenced with the Sistine Chapel, the paintings on the ceiling walls, people travel from all over the world to see them; the architectural structure is no less aesthetically studied in history books from the renaissance period. Do you understand the art and engineering behind designing such buildings?

Then we have the animating performing arts! Often the ones who are not as skilled with stylus tools can find their place in music and theater. This is to make you aware everyone can find their place in exercising creativity. Have you experienced the joy of creating music or dance?

Speaking of Music

In part two of this article we will explore a couple of instruments and thoughts on music. It has been said more than once by this writer, music is one of life’s pleasures. Really, there are many you will tell you it makes life worth living through the good and tough times! Do you agree? I’m confident that the students visiting this website are in agreement with that last sentence.

So by all means please share this article on your social media accounts and with close friends.
I’m pleased you are enjoying the Product of Culture aka pocbooks.com website

A Poem with the flavor of art

mariedigbyart.com

Seeing beauty at times takes a trained eye.
It is more than just looking up at the sky.
Some can take the easy way out by repeating what everyone has said before.
But in order to be original the ability to see beauty has to go beyond the surface of the door.
The face is just a shield.
What’s inside happens to be the true yield.
It often takes insight and training to see beyond such borders to not go along with the established order.
You don’t have to wait until you are older.
Young in age too can find beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Welcome Students in October

Welcome Students in October 2019

Greetings students.  Can we be frank? If someone says Frank is at home and we should not talk about him, then I am going to send you out for coffee… for everybody.

Now, where were we? Ah, can we talk? About October that is.

The days are cooler, and sometimes we wake up in the states and they are down right cold! Turn on the heater you say? Some of us will.

But do you know something? It is quite a chuckle to see that no matter how cold it gets, if there is a sports game like football and a homecoming event, you see your fellow classmates breaking out the parkas to attend these activities. 

Here is where we get to the can we be frank part of the discussion. 

IN OCTOBER, some of you lose your ever lovin mind. Something we used to say back in the day.  If someone says, “Yea, last century man.” Then my response will be, “You are correct, but I think we need to send you out for doughnuts… for everybody.”

Don’t get me started — I already have. 

Hey, I’m pulling your leg

But on a serious note, this month is one month where all the positive and good things you can think about should still be foremost on your mind. How many of you know what I am talking about? 

With that said, the pocbooks website will be playing plenty of beautiful sounds and displaying wonderful art during the month of October.  This helps me during this month when even the most coolest of the cool people place makeup on their faces and wear outfits that cause you to wonder if you are in another dimension!  

Hey, to each his own, I’m just informing you where my frame of mind will be during the month of October!  You are welcome to stop by the website anytime.

So; in closing, keep hydrated, eat during lunch time, and remember to be kind. 

Wishing you the best with your grades and life, James.

Welcome Students in October 2019 – Sharing is caring.

Excerpt from the archives: As a serious blogger, you find yourself absorbing a large amount of data whose primary application would be practical or technical in nature for your readers. Think about it; explaining how to use some new phone app is technical. Therefore, even though your core group of readers want to see your personality and style in the blog post, you still have to stay objective with the topic. And for the most part, there is a structured way of relating the subject for the benefit of your readers.

Mentor Students in Honesty is the Best Policy

Hi Mentors and Perceptive readers to these thoughts on honesty is the best policy.

Honesty is the Best Policy

How would you answer on the value of honesty? Is it the best way to be?
The above statement is:

  • A) Fact
  • B) False
  • Right or wrong?

In the BusinessDictionary it references honesty inclusion for ethical behavior. It states:

Acting in ways consistent with what society and individuals typically think are good values.
Ethical behavior tends to be good for business and involves demonstrating respect for key moral principles that include honesty, fairness, equality, dignity, diversity and individual rights.

Do you get the understanding that what you see is what you get ? Or at the very least be Truthful

So when you introduce yourself by name to this new person, it is expected that not only are you giving the correct name, but honesty is certainly involved with the name and actions; and will continue to do so.


Society needs and expects honesty and dignity in everyday interactions.
Well then, already, at the start of this school year, mentors and teachers have classes of these bright minds still considered in their early stage of life’s understanding. Will YOU impress upon your listeners how honesty is the best policy?
Yes, even when it comes to homework; please stop blaming sweet Fido (dog family member) for eating it. If Fido is eating it, then can you move work assignments to higher ground?
At the very least, continue to impress upon these minds, “If you have a question, then please by all means ASK.”

Yes, mentors and teachers have a way of instructing their students through their joy of the subject to become involved during a question and answer session.
For example, some teachers in a thirty-minute teaching session may teach for ten minutes and answer questions for five minutes. Then they may have another five or ten minutes for paperwork exercises. Some students (most likely) may have a few questions afterwards.
The above is by no means set in stone on how to teach.

The purpose of this article is to share the importance of your mentoring routine in allowing and in some cases encourage honest questions. Some students may experience timidity at first.

In conclusion, how would you rate your environment for bringing out the best in your students? With an assessment and observation of the questions you are receiving, then your classroom policies will improve its conduciveness for drawing out honest responses from your students.

Welcome Students to September

G’day and welcome students to September; this will be another interesting month and year of reading with enjoyment of visual media.

Welcome Students

The summer here at the Product of Culture website had more maintenance and learning addition technical skills I did not expect in my plans; but we go with the flow the best we can in getting things fixed.

Summer concludes and Autumn Begins
On Monday, September 23, the start of fall will begin. How was your summer? Hopefully, you were able to take vacations or some well-deserved breaks at least.

School Attenders
Remember, a “mind is a terrible thing to waste.” All you young minds of today, it is my hope that you are successful in working through those tough arithmetic problems. Be sure to eat plenty of nuts and berries if such things are available to you.
The important thing to remember is your mind’s body works best when there is a steady flow of high energy nutrients. This does not mean caffeine, even though you know I love my coffee and tea.
Eating fruit and vegetables every few hours is beneficial for your brain, since you are wearing the thinking cap all day long.

What does this mean? Don’t you dare skip eating during lunch! Let me say this again; please don’t skip lunch.

Work hard to have a wonderful and successful school year!

Poem – A circle in a square

As we lay in our cribs,
What is this and what is that?

How do I make the sounds of mom and dad?

As we well past the toddler stage, why can’t I no longer suckle my baby bottle, it can’t be bad?

Stay away from this and stay away from that… Why? why? why? What is the catch?

The teen years go by like a blur, the facts and figures promotes us to say mom, dad, please not another question.

With another puzzled response, every family unit ask, are you sane? That line of reasoning makes me question in the same vein.

Oh come what may look how you have grown.

On graduation day you’ve grown this far, and my oh my you are shinning like a star.

Happenstance, you questioned your heritage, and the parents your sanity, but with the questions answered everything became clear

People long-lived say the only thing that is certain is change.

I say on this day in this frame, questions are a part of life and we should feel free to ask them.

My Dear, Answering questions shows respect and love; in which there is no fear.

Happy Graduation Day!
