A Doctor's Notes about Ancient Philosophers: The Eleatic School, Xenophanes

A doctor's notes about Ancient Philosophy: The Eleatic School, Xenophanes:

 - "To represent the gods as men is to alter their nature in order to make them similar to us. These errors are due to the imaginations of men. ... it seems that Xenophanes confused God with space and with the universe taken it its totality."  

Per the late Dr. Jonathan Dolhenty was the Founder and President of The Center for Applied Philosophy and the Radical Academy, and is Honorary Philosophy Editor at The Moral Liberal.

Oh if only the writings of one of the philosophers could tell me where to find the philosopher’s stone.

What??!!  Is it so wrong to desire gold without having to pan or dig for it; and to wish to remain forever young?   :)

Scoop.it, the Perelman Premise and GOLD!

“Content is king, distribution is queen, and she wears the pants”.  ~ Jonathan Perelman, Veep of Agency Strategy at BuzzFeed.



Scoop.it works off the Perelman premise. 
~ You curate the content. 
~ They help you distribute it.

Scoop.it is a D.I.Y. content curation tool that helps you organize, publish and circulate content; including random content.  Launched in 2011 and within a year and a half, 75 million users had signed up.





Several years back, someone invited me to try Scoop.it - a content curation tool. In an effort to try to keep up with ever-changing information technology and because no fee was involved, decided it was a tool worth testing. My initial efforts resulted in the creation of three topics.

My first tests included using the interface to my blogs. If you publish a “scoop” or write a post at Scoop.it, you can share it to your blog simultaneously or at a later date. If you are on the Google Plus social network you can also share your content there also.


There is a free plan and an upgraded plan. With the upgrades, you can add more social accounts and/or blogs.


Must confess that my activity has been limited because other work-at-home projects which have been consuming my time and energy. But for the new year, decided to add Scoop.it as a priority task on my “To Do List” for 2016 and pick back up where I left off.  That turned out to be a good home business management decision. To my surprise, one of my topics has leveled up to GOLD!! It was quite a surprise when they gave me a silver ribbon. But GOLD??!! That type of recognition and support is very encouraging.




The Scoop.it content curation service has too many plusses to list, but here are a few you should consider:

+1) Links from the site are recognized by the search engines.

+2) The site owners have an informative blog loaded with tips and advice.

+2) It's a great sharing tool and also good for research.

+4) The interface to blogs or pages streamlines your work process and saves time.

Sous Vide Cooking Tips | Scoop.it

Credit is being given to the French for Sous Vide (pronounced soo-veed) Cooking, which is a method of preparing foods by vacuum sealing and cooking packed foods in controlled temperature water. 

I've seen Ming Tsai use this technique and he was trained as a chef in France. 

No matter. When it comes to cooking, if the French say we can do it, we can do it! 

Furthermore, according to my thinking, when Ming Tsai says two thumbs up and shows you how to, you've run out of excuses.  Because Mr. Tsai knows the best to cook anything! Hey! I'm a loyal fan! :) 




See on Scoop.it - My I Like Eating Channel
Sous Vide Cooking has become increasingly popular over the years. This is an easy, effective method of cooking that preserve nutrients and deliver on flavor ...

November is Native American Heritage Month

November is Native American Heritage Month, but my honor and respect for our nation's first peoples is something that I am mindful of all the time.  Although I know next to nothing about my own Native American heritage since I was raised as a Negro/Colored/Black American, it's a part of my DNA that can not be denied.  By the time we became African-Americans, I was an adult. :)

Pinterest is a wonderful invention for organizing and collecting topics of specific interest.  To try to learn more about Native Americans and their contributions, I created a pinboard and started gathering information.  Been collecting for a several years.




Additionally, for 2016, shared my thoughts about the celebration of the contributions of the first nations to the history of America and the building of this nation at myLot.com:


http://www.mylot.com/post/2997150/november-is-native-american-heritage-month


Adding on to these thoughts, opinions, and perspectives published at myLot with my other remarks and comments shared elsewhere on the web.  May I say that in my attempt to find information about Native American heritage on the Internet, I found a lot of current events that are not pretty!  Sharing the info because you can't say you appreciate the contributions of a people and then turn a blind eye to events that are adversely impacting those people.  Nevertheless, tried to find something positive and came across some wonderful art on Google Plus shared by Manuel Caycedo.  Going to end this post by re-sharing some gems plucked from his G+ posts stream.  


Happy Native American Heritage Month
and God Bless America!

Interesting Fact and Observation:
"Currently there are 562 tribal governments in the United States recognized by the federal government. Each tribe can form its own government and enforces its own laws, establishes its own taxes and regulates its own activities." That's interesting. So if this can be accomplished in America, other countries with tribal communities ( "Afghanistan's tribal groups" http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/1658073.stm ) should just copy the Native Americans. Sounds easy enough! _ _ _ APOLOGIES!!! The quote was extracted from an article published via YAHOO Voices. That site shut down and the article shared was unpublished. UPDATE: November 3, 2014














Apologies. At one time Google Plus allowed one to embed content from posts plucked from the G+ stream. However, the embed feature was discontinued. Even though the embedded content appears below, unfortunately, all of the links are misdirecting. I can share links that redirect you to the content owner's G+ profile or page.

You're Wearing That? | Wearable Technology | Tech in Biz

You're wearing that? Uuhh ... yeah! Why not? What are you? Fashion police??

Where I can see this kind of research and development going or CAN GO, is how great it would be if you had a physical handicap and these devices helped you make up for that deficit.  That may not be the direction they're going, but can't you envision that?

Photos on Friday: Peak Cherry Blossoms at the Tidal Basin (Reblog)

Used to work in our nation's capital, Washington, D.C. And one of my best memories were when the cherry blossoms bloomed. One of my Facebook pals invited me to contribute to one of her group boards on Pinterest and when I visited her profile to see what else she was pinning, found the link to her main blog which highlights “Things to See and Do in the Washington, D.C.Metro Area”. Yep. It's springtime in D.C., so you can guess what some of her blog posts were about. Cherry Blossoms! YAY! My pal is also a very good photographer.  Combining tidbits from her blog with info from my various blogs.  Hope you enjoy this post!


  • History of the National Cherry Blossom Festival: The event is one that offers a tribute to the commemoration of 3,000 cherry trees gifted to the US from Japan's Mayor Yukio Ozaki in 1912. This exquisite gift offered just after the turn of the 20th century was given as a way to honor the ongoing friendship between the US and Japan.
