WHAT Is a Thread On Social Media Twitter and How To Use It For Story Telling

WHAT Is a Thread On Social Media Twitter and How To Use It For Story Telling? That’s a question one sees very often NOW on Twitter as it is NEW. Let me explain by a practical authentic example WHAT it is good for.

In the Twitter Thread I share a bit about the Culture and traditions of my country Luxembourg in Europe, as well as some touristic tips, music events and WHAT some people eat for Christmas by a step-by-step guide of the How-To to cook it with photos and text explications. Hereby I use the “Synthesizing Mind“, see below, please.

When following my Twitter Thread, YOU will see how it is possible to connect the dots for a full Storytelling, this is just an example, NOW as YOU know WHAT is possible to do, let it go, let it flow and create YOUR OWN! Have some creativity 😉

When well chosen YOUR Topic and hashtags you will find a NEW audience as well on Twitter as also others will get interested about your thread, liking it and sharing it; your audience will grow and commercial companies also will follow you.

Check out the Blog from Twitter to know more about:

Now, hundreds of thousands of threads are Tweeted every day! But this method of Tweeting, while effective and popular, can be tricky for some to create and it’s often tough to read or discover all the Tweets in a thread. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we’re making it simpler to thread Tweets together, and to find threads, so it’s easier to express yourself on Twitter and stay informed.

Luxembourg and Cyber-Security: HOW did it START?

HACKATHON LUXEMBOURG-2016.

Luxembourg, a tiny country with ONLY 590.667 inhabitants (January 2017) in the heart of Europe and one of the smallest countries in the world, WHERE MOST persons don’t even know where to find it on the map, shows up as an international country well known and recognized for its Cyber Security knowledge, as well as its skills in ICT.

First of all: there is a lot of internal stuff which I am NOT authorized to publish and also some stuff which I don’t know! Luxembourg has also published a lot of articles in different languages (French, German) which I would attend to translate, it would take me years to do so! SO, I took the decision to publish the texts as as in the published languages!! For the really interested persons they would know how to translate them 😉 But let us GO for the most known important: Luxembourg is actually and since its start on Cyber Security showing UP with <===> Proactive-THINKing <===> in its mind!! Let us find out HOW it started:

 

1996: Creation of the CLUSSIL

Just a few months after the publication of the European Data Protection Directive (officially Directive 95/46/EC on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data) the CLUSSIL (CLUb de la SĂ©curitĂ© de SystĂšmes d’Information – Luxembourg) was created by 13 IT Security Specialists:
Jean-Marc Buchet, Jean-Marie Déom, Francis Durigneux, Hans-Werner Eiden, Sandrine Gallouédec, Carlo Harpes, Anne Hendrick, Claude Lenert, Bruno Mamer, August Mordijck, Yves Reding, Stephen Purser, Marc Schintgen.

1998: Gust MEES

First website about Cyber Security from a private person, Gust MEES. At the time people told me that I am crazy to publish about Cyber Security as THEY didn’t realize about it (MOST even STILL don’t in 2017!!).

2002: Gust MEES gave courses about Cyber Security in “Internetstuff ETTELBRÜCK” in Luxembourg.

2002: CASES

2010: BEESECURE

Le ministre de l’Ă©conomie Jeannot KreckĂ© a prĂ©sentĂ© le 8 novembre 2010 BEE SECURE, un projet commun du MinistĂšre de l’Economie et du Commerce extĂ©rieur, du MinistĂšre de la Famille et de l’IntĂ©gration et du MinistĂšre de l’Education et de la Formation Professionnelle.

5 Jahre sind im Internetzeitalter ganz schön lange und fĂŒr BEE SECURE auf jeden Fall Grund genug, Partner und UnterstĂŒtzer zusammenzurufen und gemeinsam einen Blick in die Vergangenheit zu werfen.

So versammelten sich am 9. Oktober rund 100 geladene GĂ€ste im Forum GeesseknĂ€ppchen, wo allerhand „Requisiten“ der letzten fĂŒnf Jahre ausgestellt waren. Im Fokus standen die Sensibilisierungskampagnen, die seit 2010 BEE SECURE zur wichtigsten Anlaufstelle im Land machen, wenn es um die sichere Benutzung von Computer und Co geht.

21st Century Education practice: Tutankhamun Exhibition in Cologne (DE)

A cultural holiday in Cologne (Germany) in 2011.

sharing iconVisiting the Tutankhamun Exhibition in Cologne (Germany) in January 2011. A small report about that exhibition and about Cologne in Germany as also a bit history around it…

This was a Knol created on January 30, 2011 and migrated to WordPress Annotum on June 30, 2012.

Tutankhamun Exhibition in Cologne (DE)

Tutankhamun – his tomb and his treasures…
    EXPO XXI – Gladbacher Wall 5
          until 20th, March 2011

A sensational discovery 88 years ago turned the unknown pharaoh Tutankhamun into a superstar. In 1922, the archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the burial chambers of the ancient Egyptian king with their vast treasures – an event that caused a worldwide sensation.

The story of Tutankhamun fascinates people to this day. His mysterious, premature death and unique legacy are the stuff of legend.

The exhibition shows the world’s only museum-quality replica of mankind’s most fascinating tomb and its treasures. Now, for the first time, after 88 years it offers the opportunity to visit the tomb three-dimensionally in its original state. Welcome to the Valley of Kings in Cologne: The Exhibition Web Site

Keywords:

The Exhibition In Pictures…



thumps up iconInside the exhibition: it is allowed to take photos inside that exhibition, but without using the flash. So profit from it, I did… Photos below are my propriety and there is also a copyright message in the photos. If you find a photo where you think that there is no viewable copyright in it, take care… There might be a hidden one 😉

Cologne (Germany)

482px-Wappen_Koeln.svg
Text from Wikipedia: Cologne (Köln in German) is Germany’s fourth-largest city (after Berlin, Hamburg and Munich), and is the largest city both in the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia and within the Rhine-Ruhr Metropolitan Area, one of the major European metropolitan areas with more than ten million inhabitants (that is 20 times more than Luxembourg has inhabitants). It is one of the oldest cities in Germany, having been founded by the Ubii in the year 38 BC. The name is derived from that of the Roman settlement, Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium.

Tips And Tricks For Visiting Cologne…

Amateurs of museums would love Cologne because Cologne is home of more than 30 museums. What visitors of museums should know is that it is not allowed to bring in the museums handbags, nor photo bags…

Cologne is nice to explore by walking, make sure to book a hotel not too far away from the cathedral, otherwise take the suburban, the S-Bahn… You may also use sometimes the taxi, they have fair prices in Cologne, e.g: from the cathedral to the exhibition XXI the costs were 9 € (25.01.2011)…
Use also VirtualTourist to find out what other visitors say about Cologne…
.
Warnings and dangers:

Cologne (Köln) bike lane

.

There are a lot of bikers in Cologne and on the pavement they have their special lane, watch out. If not used to it you might get an accident with a bike while walking on the pavement (it nearly happen 3 times to me…). The pavements in Cologne are broader than usually and this allows a special lane for bikers on the pavement, a very good solution, the bikes are not on the road and they can drive safely…

Please find here very interesting links to related articles about Egypt and his history…


HowTo use exhibitions for education

.
First I created this blog for my own purpose, but then I thought also about on publishing it on a way as that it could get used as an idea on HowTo for education. That’s why you will find that much information on it, it’s created as a multidisciplinary blog and could get used as a sort of template for others in education…
.
You will find not only a description of the exhibition, but also information about the City Cologne as of the Country Germany as well as information about Egyptology and more… So it’s a valuable source…
.
That’s what you should do also with your learners, students when visiting an exhibition:

For a Better World

For a Better World

For A Better World

Multi-Cultural Blog

A multicultural effort on showing how the world could become better. This blog is an example of multi-cultural author collaboration. This world that we live in is divided into different continents and countries. We still can make it as a better world, by finding areas of common interest among ourselves as humans, as well as sharing our knowledge about what could be done for a better world.

Actually (06 November 2010) we are present authors of Egypt, Luxembourg, Australia, United States, Switzerland, India and Italy, awaiting soon more countries to join in.

The authors are not “dreamers”, they have a “realistic thinking” background, they know that this world can not be changed in a short time, but they want to share their ideas and Tips to make it move forward

This article was a knol created on November 02, 2010 and was migrated to WP on December 29, 2011.

Disclaimer


1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-trafficlightgreendan01Authors are trying on their best to present content which is accepted in any culture, that is why it is a Multi-cultural Blog. If you, dear reader would find something which you think is hurting you, or this could happen, so please let us know and we will try to clarify it… We don’t want to harm anybody, but it could be possible that we publish(ed) something without knowing that it could be not well accepted by some cultures. We are humans and trying to present something useful, so please if you find it not acceptable, just let us know and we will take care of it.. Thank you very much and we hope you enjoy it.. 🙂

Welcome To Our Readers


.

.

[GM]: Good manners, such as greeting somebody (Hello, Hi…) also and especially on Internet (on Internet it is disappearing almost), saying “Thank you” to somebody and “please” are “keywords” for showing “Respect” to each other.

In my country (Luxembourg) we even say that those words are the “keys” that open all the doors…


Different authors with different cultures are trying to meet and share their knowledge on a Blog to break out the distances among themselves. Most of the authors present here have an educational and/or medical knowledge background and are using this knowledge to give you, dear readers, a guideline, an impulse for thinking on it how it could be, when wished so

In this blog we will try to give as much as possible guidelines about what we authors present here think what could be done for a better world and also we will show on this knol how it could possible be realized by using ICT and Education as possibilities…

We are not “dreamers“, we have a “realistic thinking” background, we know that this world can not be changed in a Century Time, but we want to share our ideas and Tips to make it move forward…


If you, dear reader and/or knol author, have the same mentality, please let us know it by a comment. 

Thanks to do so, you will be welcome 😉


.
When I do something for other people, I feel good, “says Peterson“. When you do something voluntarily for others, not only for its own interests, it is rewarded. In some mysterious way, serve as an “altruistic” (the opposite of selfishness) gives his own life more important. It seems that nature have put it in our genes, or that people are happy when they have the spirit of sharing, community spirit.

So, dear readers, make yourself feeling good and share this knol (unit of knowledge) with other people, thanks in advance 😉

Introduction

1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-trafficlightgreendan01We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate.
There are multiple ways existing already to make this World better, to let you know what could be done authors of this knol have created different sections to show you what exactly is existing, such as:
.
  • Alternative Energies for a better world
  • New Architecture Technologies for a better world
  • Science for a better world
  • Traditional medecine for a better world
  • Sharing our knowledge for a better world
  • Multicultural Events
  • New Knowledge in Psychology, the positive thinking
  • Education for a better world
  • Generation Exchange for a better world
  • Helping The Poor to take part of the already present knowledge
  • Financing with MicroCredits to give opportunity to learn
.

.
PS: Give your brain a kick and start thinking on how yourself can contribute to a better world, the solutions are described here in this blog 😉

Some wise words:

With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world. Dalai Lama

By developing a sense of concern for others’ well-being, then no matter what others’ attitudes are, you can keep inner peace. Dalai Lama


What Is Multicultural???

.

.

What is multicultural??? It is like a rainbow, lots of different colors and most lots of different mentalities, different ways to see the same things…

This blog tries to show the common things for everybody with different mentalities but with the same goal “For A Better World” and I am sure we will be able to find a common point of interest and also a common point of on how to change things 😉


The World, Our Home, Let Us Preserve It…

This video is a must to watch it: We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate.


The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.

For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.

—> HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet. <—

Yann Arthus-Bertrand


For Education: This is the BEST video ever made to explain what our World is, it takes 1h33 minutes, so prepare your courses in advance considering the time of the video… But it is worth to show your students this video and later on the other videos  who are shown in the section below. After watching these videos, try to make a “Question and Answer” session together with your students and learners, a need…

Me profiting from when I help other people, it is me who gives something and not the other person???” Such may be your thinking, but…There are new ways in Psychology who are describing this very well such as:

.

.


.
When I do something for other people, I feel good, “says Peterson“. When you do something voluntarily for others, not only for its own interests, it is rewarded. In some mysterious way, serve as an “altruistic” (the opposite of selfishness) gives his own life more important. It seems that nature have put it in our genes, or that people are happy when they have the spirit of sharing, community spirit.
.

.

When I am happy and talking to other persons so my positive karma is going over to other persons as well and they will learn also to become happy (without taking drugs) and happy persons are more open minded and constructive thinking as well. Constructive thinking means also doing and/or creating something new related to new acquired knowledge and sharing this new acquired knowledge again makes things move forward, a positive step who will get amplified by other people following that same good mentality…

The Sharing Of Knowledge over the Internet has the Power of 24/24 hours availability and the information could get read where ever, Internet connexion provided…

Traditional Medicine

Krishan MAGGON

Krishan Maggon: Before World War II, medicine was mostly traditional all over the world except few drugs like aspirin, insulin and few vaccines. Advanced in medicine and science and imaging have contributed to the resurgence of modern medicine in most of the Western and developed world.

.
.
womanchemistgeraldg.01Lack of health care insurance in developing and poor countries and the high cost of modern medicine has made it out of reach for over 70% of global population. Thus over 5 billion persons in our world rely mainly on the traditional system of medicines like the Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, Shaman, Persian, Arab, African/Asian/local tribal medicine men, phytotherapy, homeopathy and a diverse variety of remedies, cures and treatments. These cures are often derived from nearby forests or local resources. The early practitioners of traditional medicine were saints, community leaders or learned scholars and were recognized as well wishers of the society. This tradition still continues in rural communities, where traditional medicine men are sought after for health care and general social problems of the family.
The main ethical issue in poor communities and populations today is how to deliver modern healthcare and make it accessible to all. It is a moral dilemma that even over 60 years after the foundation of WHO, the world is not able to educate all its children or provide an efficient health care to the poor sections of its population or eliminate misery and poverty.
 
ayurveda
www.ibspro.net/tag/element

The cost of traditional medicine is much lower, it is closer to the community, and patients get personal attention or the healing touch of the practitioner who speaks the same language. Traditional medicine until a few decades ago has never been practiced as a commercial service like modern medicine and patients pay according to their ability and financial status. The World Health Organization has recommended for the incorporation of the traditional systems of medicine for communities where it is accepted, into the primary health care system. Although traditional medicine did not learn from the rest of the world or incorporate modern ideas from science and medicine, there is no reason for modern medicine to ignore traditional systems of medicines. These systems must be reinterpreted in the light of our new knowledge and incorporated in modern medicine along with other forms of traditional medicine.

 





New Drugs Offer Magical Cures To Save Lives 

.

New anticancer drugs in development offer us the possibility of dramatic and complete cure for Metastatic melanoma.
The story of the 2 new wonder drugs Ipilimumab and BRAF inhibitor PLX 4032 have been extensively covered in the media.
New drugs acting on the nerve growth factors NGF offer us the real possibility of relief from chronic pain for 1-2 months with a single injection. In addition, these drugs are non addictive and free from liver, kidney and gastrointestinal adverse drug reactions of current analgesics.
The central role of beta amyloid protein in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease has highlighted its role in memory loss and cognitive functions. New drugs aimed at beta amyloid protein may slow, stop or even reverse degrading cognitive function and memory loss.

What Can Education Do For A Better World???


Teacher iconEducation, if well managed can do a lot for a better world. The teaching system (worldwide) should teaching more about sensibleness of nature and social conflicts, not only the basics what is already on the teaching schedule, more teaching of sensibleness how humans are destroying our planet, trying to make learners sensible to the planet problems…

What is Education already doing for a better world??? There is a worldwide Student Exchange Program for cultural understanding existing as well as a special Concept of knowledge sharing from the European Commission, called “COMENIUS“, please watch here “Comenius“. Other possibilities from the European Commission could get found here “Education & Training“.

Education should be FREE for everybody worldwide, there is already something happening, not known by most of the people, have a look here please “Khan Academy“. Khan (The Founder) intends nothing less than “tens of thousands” of tutorials offering the “first free, world-class virtual school where anyone can learn anything.” Have a look on here as well, please: Bill Gates’ favorite teacher

Generation Exchange / Café des ùges / Dialogue Café



sharing icon

.In collaboration with the Alliance of Civilizations, CISCO launched Dialogue Café at the Istanbul Forum. The project is based on a radical but simple idea: ordinary people have more in common than not and given the opportunity will explore their common interests even across radical geo-political divides.

Dialogue CafĂ© links diverse groups of citizens from around the world through third generation video-conferencing technology, thereby creating a new space for social innovation and exponentially expanding our ability to solve problems and innovate as a global community. Dialogue Café’s development is being supported by an international multi-sector consortium of partners, enabled by cutting-edge technology, and most importantly is driven by ordinary people.

The Café proof of concept will commmence with preparations for pilot cafes in New York, London, Istanbul and the Middle East.

In the French Speaking Community there are already similar activities running, those cafĂ©s are called “CafĂ© des Ăąges“, places where young and older generation come together around a good drink and where they are discussing about a “daily chosen” theme.
One of those themes is as example (we published it already here): “Music, A Link Between Generations?“.

What Can ICT Do For A Better World???

computer-ajajashton01ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) has a wide impact for a better world as the whole knowledge of mankind (when present on Internet) could get used to share it (when Internet connexion provided, what is not the case in all countries). When we use the word “World“, we are talking about the “World in the 21th Century“, thus meaning that we have also to consider Internet being part of our world as both are interacting…

So as most of you know probably, Internet is like a trap when people are not aware about the dangers and the security. Security is a must on our days, we need to protect our computers and also we need some special tools to know if the web sites we are visiting are secure. One of those tools is WOT (World Of Trust)…



WOT-badge150x150
WOT, protect yourself from online scams, sites with adult content, spam and other Internet threats. The Wot community has rated millions of websites so you can search, shop online and surf for fun without worrying.

First of all, Internet must be present in any country of the world, as also a good broadband of Internet services, below you will see the last report from Cisco about “The World’s Broadband Leaders in 2010“, who gives you an overview on how “bad” certain countries still are, there is still a lot of work to do to give customers in certain countries the possibility to use Internet…

Fair Trade Labelling And Rainforest Alliance / Coffee

coffee2

Why fore “Coffee” here as part of a better World??? “Coffee” stays here for “relaxing“, “tasting“, “taking part of social life” by drinking “Coffee” together with other people, which is also “harmony”. By buying also only Coffee from small companies “Fair Trade” and/or Rainforest Alliance you will help to survive small earning people and not only sponsoring the Big Concerns…

Music As A Link For Multicultural And Generations Living Together


bassguitara.j.ashton

Music is a very good possibility for sharing feelings and for showing also the taste of different generations and nationalities. But it is not only the music, people forget much often to understand also the lyrics. So when listening to a music video why not searching to find the same with lyrics.


By understanding the meaning behind a song (Music and Lyrics), it is possible to feel how a generation and a culture is thinking. By organizing Multi Cultural Music Festivals in a country, this allows to bring together different cultures…

International Food, Eating and Hunger In The World…

chefjarnovasamaaInternational Food, why fore is this section in here, sounds strange to me??? Answer: by knowing what other people are eating and also their habits on how they are eating we could understand a bit more about their lifestyle and their mentality as well as their social status…

Eating is a must for every human isn’t it??? And by eating different dishes from different cultures we are knowing a bit more about other cultures isn’t it??? By creating exhibitions about international food we are creating places where multicultural people are meeting to know each other better, isn’t it so???

Aware of the issues represented by the Greater Region in the economic development of the catering sector, EXPOGAST is located in Luxembourg, the business heart of the region. The opportunities offered by the international dimension of Luxembourg, Belgium, France and Germany are enhanced by the specific features of Luxembourg where 44.66% (1) of residents are foreign, expecting the highest added value to be offered, but demonstrating the particularly high level of loyalty among traditional Luxembourg visitors.

 

The social criteria of current and potential visitors to EXPOGAST: the international community, multiculturalism, multilingual skills and a high purchasing power are some of the factors favouring the economic development of gastronomy, culturally embedded in custom and usage.

Visit this link, please to understand more about it: EXPOGAST and the Best Link here ONT-LUXEMBOURG. 51 nations are present…more than 2,300 cooks from 5 continents…

The countries “Motto“:

Mir wölle bleiwe wat mir sin‘. It looks like German and Dutch, mixed together and means: ‘We want to stay what we are‘.

luxembourgLuxembourg is one of the smallest countries of the world with 502,000 inhabitants only (2009), but also one of the richest countries in the world relating to “List of countries by GDP (PPP) per capita“.

The roots of the people are Celtic and the spoken language is Luxembourgish, while the administrative languages are French and German.The newspapers are mostly written in at least three languages, Luxembourgish, French and German with sometimes also English…


Living myself in a country (Luxembourg) where there are living about 44% (2010) people from different nationalities, even that Foreigners could outnumber Lux nationals by 2020. It is the highest proportion of foreigners of any EU country, so I am used to it, living with different mentalities, but others probably not…

Luxembourg is situated in the heart of Europe and bordered by France, Belgium and Germany. In 2009 the abroad (frontier runners) working people in Luxembourg by per cent was 43% from the total working people in Luxembourg. From those 43% were 49,4% French people, 25,4% Belgium people and 25,1% from Germany. More information here in French: les frontaliers.lu

Some Humor 😉

chaticon01

Humor is internationally accepted and understood… With humor things who normally would never get accepted could get accepted by the way of laughing about each other (very important)!


Humor makes it much more easy to bring people on a “win-win” situation, thus meaning (as example): somebody tells a joke about the country of his “conversation partner” and the other one replies also with a joke about the other ones “conversation partner” country. So at least they have “fought” on a social and peaceful wise, which is normally accepted and when there are good (peaceful)  characters this could even help to build up a friendship 😉

Authors Point Of View On How To Realize A Better World

 Ibrahim H. Hussney

Ibrahim H. Hussney: In the world of managing and developing businesses; you need always to be near from the facts and working with the reality, the necessary existence of these two principals in the mind are for the sake of the business itself and also help not to lose the thread of the correct ways needed for developing its management, The question which may jump to your mind now, are you able alone to see this reality?. And if so; for what extend you can?

For a Better World, you need to work within a team considering yourself like a part of a bigger system, nowadays you are not able to isolate yourself and working everything alone, performing what we called “One Man Show” became not feasible anymore, twenty eyes can see better than two, also twenty eyes can see much more details and touch much of the realities especially when we talk about those what are hidden away from the only two eyes.
sharing icon
Five tools you need to dominate in order to develop your talent of Seeing Reality Through Other’s Eyes, so you need to go through:

a-Establishing more relationships for widening and supporting your ideas.

b-Go for more conversations and brainstorming to determine the future shape.
c-Suspending your assumptions for a while and think systemically.
d-Balancing between advocacy and inquiry while implementing new policy.
e-Open your mind, heart and teach yourself the philosophy of keep moving to see new people and places.
  • More relationships mean more people to know, mean more ideas to discover, mean more opportunities to discipline your own ideas and mean finally to get the necessary support for these ideas.
  • More conversations and brainstorming to be involved with, mean to become more near to discover the better shape for the future you are looking for yourself and for your society; hence for the whole world.
  • Try to suspend your assumptions for a while which always pushing you, change your thinking style from linearity to non-linearity or in spite you are always logic in your thinking you need also some creativity to express. The best is to balance between both styles.
  • Never adhere yourself always to advocate your new policy; train yourself to inquire for more and more details, such behavior certainly will develop your ideas and support your advocacy at the end of the day, helping in implementing your new policy smoothly; also balancing between both issues is always required.
  • Open your mind, your heart; open all of your possible windows to learn and to know whatever is new and all whatever may help in achieving your goals; train yourself to adapt the philosophy of keep moving, that will help your talent of discovering things via visiting the new places and knowing new people and cultures.

Summary


aigainformation1
So, after having published that much in here in this blog, what is the most important???




Gust MEES
Gust MEES: We are ALL humans, wherever we are living, whatever our social status is, whatever our education is, whatever our religion is, whatever our character is, whatever our opinion is, whatever our ethics are, whatever our ethnics are. Acting as a human means also sharing our knowledge to ALL the people (not necessary on a commercial way)…



.
.

Think on that and react on a “win-win” situation when talking (also comment on Internet) to other people, please.
Think “Constructive” and not “Destructive”.



TOGETHER we build a better world, if wished so…
