POCBOOKS Content Platforms
The Perceptive Readers Podcast is an intriguing feature in the Product of Culture website. For this podcast I use two platforms the site has in dispensing, serve if you will; its content creation. Of course, there are more; but I want to highlight these two in this pocbooks FYI
Perceptive reading and listening is acquired through daily practice. Most assuredly, when you are reading a subject that brings pleasure, and is your “cup of tea,” as the expression goes, it’s easier to discern hidden treasures while looking in on that subject or topic.
Is Perceptive Reading Needed Before Perception?
The perceptive meaning is not the same as perception (an idea, a belief or an image you have as a result of how you see or understand something) .
Perceptive: Is having or showing the ability to see or understand things quickly, especially things that are not obvious.Oxford Learner’s Dictionaries
Now when your reading involves a topic that has never been a serious interest or motivation, important points are often overlooked, even though they would open an in-depth angle to mentally grasp the information.
The Perceptive Desire and Intention Yields Results
For example, you have people who read books on flowers, while others love reading about cars. Imagine for a moment when they switch books with one another, how much will each learn or grasp the topic?
The person who loves flowers reads the car book slower and gets less on the subject.
While reading about flowers: The person who loves plants will unearth and grasp more insightful points reading the flower book than the car book.
The person who loves cars reads the flower book slower and gets less on the subject.
While reading about cars: The person sees not only how things work but also the imagination becomes active on how to make it even better. Cosmetically as well. Have you seen teenagers with their first souped up car? (Reference 1950s to 1990s car pictures)
When you already love a subject, your perception of it becomes even closer/clearer to the mark or bulls-eye right because of the sincere intent and efforts. ‘My dear Watson you are indubitable correct’
Take a listen at these following 4 podcasts locations and find a topic you are interested in to the point of having an in-depth understanding as well. Maybe even to the point of talking about it further with others

In part 1 of Art and Music Journey in The Mind, it states: “Since there is a time for learning, exercise, and work; there is also certainly a time for (art and music) play.” Well, along with part 2 (Laura Farre Rozada) on this subject, there is an experience that I describe as superb! You can believe there are others who feel the same way.

First, let’s talk more about the next music section of this article.
Art and Music Journey in the Mind Part 2
There are more musical instruments than most people can readily name — can we say music college majors? How many of us know in depth these categories of instruments?
- Bowed strings
If you are like me, the first three in the list subconsciously come to mind, while the others require more thought. Depending on which maestro you are talking with and their interesting background culture, they will break the above 6 categories down on such a granular level that can leave your mind wondering for a bit.
Do you have a favorite instrument? Do you know how to play it? If you have a social media account, feel free to share this article with the instrument you play. Hey, some of you can share it on Instagram with your recital or band photos.
Did you know this about the pocbooks.com commentaries?
The musicians highlighted here show skills in voice, instruments, and production. Their style is who they are and yet; like with most humans, own diverse qualities to varying degrees that encompass colors of warmth and connection.
Poetry – Instruments of the Soul
There are times when a guitar just will not do.
Those moments may be many or be few.
The flute may get the attention.
After a while, there is something else that could be mentioned.
The piano may be suggested to be so bold.
However, it is the harp’s ability to soothe the soul.
Piano Masterworks Alive Laura Farre Rozada
What a superb performance! Have you ever said that after a show? Please allow me to share with you a performance myself and about fifty to eighty (the comfortable seating venue) others were able to enjoy!
The award-winning pianist and mathematician
Laura Farré Rozada
She completed her Master of Music degree as the Royal College of Music in London.
The audience that night was cordially — lively and quite a few of them specialized in fields of technical, medical and music. One composer I had an opportunity to chat with after the performance stated Laura is of high quality and a “virtuoso.”
In my brief meeting with her, I found her personality to be in the same expressions of her moving pianist skills displayed that evening. What do I mean? Allow me to explain from some of my notes I jotted down. Though I had planned on just taking it all in for an evening of food, wine, good conversation, and music; when Laura Farré Rozada started playing, I could not help but pick up my pocket sized square journal to take notes.
Laura Farré Rozada First Album
The French Reverie is Laura’s first solo album
From Spain, France, Germany, Canada, Bulgaria, and UK; her performances have been well received. Remember the virtuoso comment mentioned.
These sentiments are elaborated on here…
Musicology and Symmetry merges with Laura Farré Rozada
The pianist Laura merges sounds, beats, and music; I am not just talking as a figure of speech either. There were times when she tapped on the piano like they were bongo drums. If you think I’m kidding, I’m not. I heard from three persons who get to enjoy the arts on this level every month of the year say, in so many words, she was a new experience for them.
What a classical experience!
Every keystroke pulsated through her face and cheeks. Laura’s
fingers moves at the speed of twilight. Her lips curl to give the
As her hair joins the chorus, the flocks starts flowing to the unseen melody of the air! – Product of Culture
The above describes the opening of her performance’s first song.
Fractuals are Real in Her Music
A Professor in computer science while in conversation with me during intermission, stated: I started seeing fractals (Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales) in her music. Yet there is still quite something I’m still missing or looking for here.
My response with a lighthearted smile: “It is on a metaphysical and 5th dimension level.”
You could see the eureka light bulb come on in his head. “Yes, that is what I was looking for.”
Note in Details: I used the term metaphysical because I ascertained he would have more of a comprehensive view of what I was stating; rather than just saying my favorite word, “Spiritual.” The term 5th dimension also was referenced because from his expert analysis or opinion for some of his deeply contemplated expressions, you could discern he was in Quantum physics’ mode. To observe him during the performance before the intermission truly showed me the power and enlightening effect Laura’s music had on the audience.
More Listening Observations of this Pianist
Laura Farre Rozada allows every note, every vibration of molecules play out in parts of her composition.
See and hear her perform the music composition Sacrifice
There were moments when the anguish of this piece was on her face. The audience’s reaction had persons bowing their heads up and down not just in the rhythm; but yes, yes, I understand what your are saying. I feel what you are saying. One distinguish gentleman at certain pitches was placing his hands together… He closed his eyes… Was there dew drops of moisture on his eyelids?
Turning around to look at the audience, they were remembering family and events in their lives that meant a lot to them.
The Meaning We Realize
At moments, Laura would allow the last stroke of the keys fade away as she looks softly at them; it is though she is making love with music. Such a gift along with her excellent timing and precision, Laura Farre Rozada is a masterful pianist gem.
POCBOOKS Update Moment – Right Good or Both?
Today’s discussion uses an illustration about washing hands, which has been shared in lighted-hearted times, in general and why we do it. However, during the first quarter of the 2020 year, it became ever more mindful for us humans to revive or renew our thoughts on it; also with an elevated additional thought.
Perceptive Readers FYI
‘When and How to Wash Your Hands’: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
‘Each year, we commemorate the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the anniversary of his death. This important event will be observed Tuesday, April 7.’ – JW.ORG
Since there is a time for learning, exercise, and work; there is also certainly a time for ( art and music ) play.
This article was originally posted on October 2019.
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.
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?
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?
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
But first, you will also want to check out the product of culture artist pick website:
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.

Dear Perceptive Readers, This is going to be as succinct an article, as possible by me, for you professionals who want to understand the Visa and Mastercard Action Settlement. You may also want to register this as ethical business practices as well.
These 4 questions will be covered
What is a Class Action Settlement?
Did Visa and MasterCard break any laws?
Were you cheated or your rights violated?
Where can you find out more on how to proceed?
Read This Section on Ethics
To prepare your perceptive mind to make a balance decision on this business matter, read and listen to Ethics A and Ethics B
Ethics A) “Ethics: The field of ethics (or moral philosophy) involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong behavior. Philosophers today usually divide ethical theories into three general subject areas: metaethics, normative ethics, and applied ethics. Metaethics investigates where our ethical principles come from, and what they mean. Are they merely social inventions? Do they involve more than expressions of our individual emotions? Metaethical answers to these questions focus on the issues of universal truths, the will of God, the role of reason in ethical judgments, and the meaning of ethical terms themselves.” –https://www.iep.utm.edu/ethics/
Ethics B) Do you Understand Communication Ethics Principles? (Video)
VISA AND MASTERCARD CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT
6.24 Billion Visa and Mastercard Class Action Settlement
This is a proposed $5.54–$6.24 billion settlement to provide payments to merchants who accepted Visa and Mastercard at any time from January 1, 2004.
1) What is a Class Action Settlement?
A class action is a procedural device that permits one or more plaintiffs to file and prosecute a lawsuit on behalf of a larger group, or “class”. – Cornell Law School – https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/class_action
Just One Example: You own a business, as the innocent plaintiff, that has been hurt by another company’s business practices that violated/broke the law, now the defendant, in their dealings/transactions with you. Your fellow merchants, whether in the same location or country-wide experienced the same treatment.
This is what your experience/complaint results in: “ In a class action, people or businesses sue not only for themselves, but also on behalf of other people or businesses with similar legal claims and interests. Together all of these people or businesses with similar claims and interests form a class, and are class members.”
2) Did Visa and Mastercard break any laws?
This lawsuit is principally about the interchange fees attributable to merchants that accepted Visa or Mastercard credit or debit cards between January 1, 2004 and January 25, 2019, and Visa’s and Mastercard’s rules for merchants that have accepted those cards.
The Rule 23(b)(3) Class Plaintiffs claim that…
3) Were you cheated or your rights violated?
Rule 23(b)(3) Class Plaintiffs claim that Visa & Master Card its respective member banks, including the Bank Defendants violated the law(s) by carrying out the following practice(s):
Violated the law because they set interchange fees.
*They imposed and enforced rules that limited merchants from steering their customers to other payment methods. (E.g no-surcharge rules, no-discounting rules, honor-all-cards rules)
*Conspired together about some of the business practices challenged
• They continued in those activities despite the fact that Visa changed its corporate structure and became a publicly owned corporation after this case was filed.
• Conduct caused the merchants to pay excessive interchange fees
“The Defendants say they have done nothing wrong. They claim their business practices are legal, justified, the result of independent competition and have benefitted merchants and consumers.”
4) Where can you find out more on how to proceed?
On January 24, 2019 the Court granted preliminary approval to the settlement filed on September 18, 2018. The Order is available

This information is provided to you as an FYI. I very much realize how intelligent you readers are here. Yet, as has been stated, at times the thoroughness of documents made for taxes, court cases, and contracts can be a bit overwhelming for the best of us. Especially with people who have the creative mindset. Though you create complex music and art in general, you like to keep things simple, clean, and honest when it comes to business and professional matters. In general, most people wish such things of this nature could be so simple. All the same, this information is not to tell you what to do, but give you some idea on what it is about. – Regards, J.
Is 5G Wireless Safe Technology in your Home?
You Perceptive Readers will find this 5G Wireless Safe technology an important subject to talk about over coffee. Yes, the following information is to provide thoughts you may or may not have considered at this time.
Is 5G Wireless Safe Technology in your Home?
Think about the children. This is a thought adults keep in mind when it comes to anything, and we of humanity do mean anything that can affect a child adversely. The smallest of us can’t speak for themselves, and so the parents and one’s in positions of trust have a wonderful responsibility to take perfect care of them.
Didn’t that statement just make you feel good inside? It is also a sobering thought as well.
Is 5G wireless safe for children to be around?
The (IoT) Internet of things will continue to take the already billions of connected devices to hundreds of billions with 5G capable devices. That’s if the 5G implementation of telecom and corporate companies go as planned.
The question people are still asking, “Is this powerful technology safe for children?” Is it safe for humans to have our home’s and neighborhoods air space saturated with these waves transmitting in all these (IoT) devices, along with our phones?
A Statement from Frank Clegg on 5G
After viewing the video below by Frank Clegg, I made this statement on my Minds Product of Culture channel to the subscribers:
Me: Take it from someone who was certified in multi-channel communications decades ago. Though I have a deep appreciation for technology, my experience and knowledge gives creditable red flags and great caution with the way they are talking about the implementation of 5G. Like energy plants having to be shielded with alot of safe guards, researchers may find 5G technology is in the same RISK category that requires such (insulation) protections.
Mr, Frank Clegg – Former President of Microsoft Canada
Technologies Mission is to enhance our quality of life.
It aids in building, feeding, and medically advanced healing research as never before. The theme parks and recreational escapees we travel to are the majority of the time provided by the safe usage of technology.
We may find 5G wireless technology is also like driving a race car. Though the vehicle can travel at great speeds, going at those highspeeds is not allowed everywhere for the public’s safety.
We may also find 5G wireless technology a catch twenty- two situation catch 22.
Technology is a wonderful tool. Let us be always aware it is also a powerful tool that should be respected.
Why does something work the way it does?
Do I need special garments (clothing) and training to use such tools?
Becoming knowledgeable for ourselves in the benefits and risk of these technologies will help us to make better decisions. The children of humanity will also thank us for it. These precious minds are worth the necessary research.
My experience, Mr. Frank Clegg words on this 5G technology topic should not be hastily ignored.
