An Addition To The AVC Comment Policy1


Yesterday I went to see what the community was talking about and found this at the top of the comment threads: I thought to myself “oh shit, the token scammers have arrived” and immediately deleted those comments and left a reply saying that I am going to update the comment policy. So I did that this morning. There will be no token promotions in the AVC comments, period. I am fine with discussing the merits of various blockchain/crypto technologies and tokens, but outright promotion is not cool and I won’t allow it. I hope this is clear and everyone understands why it is necessary. http://avc.com/2018/01/an-addition-to-the-avc-comment-policy/

Character


I’ve been thinking about the word “character” a fair bit over the past weeks. So, I decided to dig in to begin to understand what the word really means. Character is defined as a set of mental and moral qualities that are distinctive to an individual. Stephen Covey said that our character is a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconscious patterns, they constantly express our character. My synthesis is that our character is how we solve problems and face adversity. How we solve problems and face adversity, in turn, is the truest demonstration of our motives and values and how we reconcile the inevitable conflicts between them. To understand Covey’s observation on how we express our character, we must understand Anton Chekov. Chekov wisely observed – Any idiot can face a crisis – it’s day to day living that wears you out, i.e., there are few harder problems out there than living an intentional life day-to-day. That’s why our approach to living out our days (i.e. our daily habits) is a great reflection of our character. Our character is how we think because how we think demonstrates our mental and moral qualities. And, how we think manifests itself in what we do. Made me wonder – if I looked at my daily habits, what would I learn about my character? (i.e. my character as it is versus what I think it to be) Share this: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Like this: Like Loading... Related https://alearningaday.com/2018/01/16/character/

Black Unemployment _#8212; Who Gets The Credit_


Source: http://themusingsofthebigredcar.com/6213-2/ Today, we talk black unemployment and who gets the credit for its current lower level? Big Red Car here on a lovely bright Austin By God Texas day. The kind of day that makes you want to move to Austin, but, then, I live here, don’t I? So, we are hearing a lot about black unemployment and how it has plunged. President Donald J Trump has mentioned it a few times. Some folks have attributed the current status — 6.8% in Dec 2017 v a high of 16.5% in April 2011 — to President Obama. Still, way too high when national unemployment is 4.1% from a high of 10% in October 2009. [Please note that President Obama, himself, is a currently an unemployed black man, no?]It is clearly true that President Trump has continued the downward trend, some say he has accelerated it. However, the trend was already headed in that direction before he arrived in office. Thanks, Obama. But, hey, what the Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car. Thanks, Obama.   Source: http://themusingsofthebigredcar.com/6213-2/
