I have managed to reconstruct the article (published in TIM’s November 2008 newsletter) from my personal files. Below: November Guest Author Ride the panic – sack ‘em ‘ol!!!!!!

Israel-Gaza conflict – the war funnies

Every violent conflict gives birth to the war humour. On one hand,the macabre, on the other, a sarcastic outlook that allows  psychological respite. Well  known that humour is the best stress relief, and  yes, we should employ it to deal with anxiety of the current engagement with the Palestinians. Because laughter is the best anti-depressant  in the world. So, hearing the […]

How come that hi-tech companies still shun digital marketing?

There is this endless ocean of words about digital marketing. The advice, concept, rules, conclusions . You name it. From big and small gurus. The do’s and don’ts of the trade. Still, speaking from my  personal “narrow” experience, it is nevertheless baffling  how many hi-tech companies shun the sphere. Granted that there should be a meticulous expert […]

Social media inspirational leadership spam – Enough is Enough!

To be honest, am pretty much fed up with all the How-to: recruit/retain/manage/lead/inspire your employees etc….motivational junk in social media. Especially on LinkedIn. There is endless barrage of articles and quotes from ‘business leaders/management gurus/trend setters/C-levels and rank-‘n-file  members who, all of a sudden are allowed to share their “wisdom” with the crowd. Predominantly,  a copycat […]

Nice to get acquainted: blogs – a new form of Art, #Content Art

  When confronted with the question what do I get from this blog, except for the intellectual and moral satisfaction, it took me a while to figure out the answer.

 Guess who fairs better    “In the beginning, God created man, but seeing him so feeble, He gave him the cat.”- Warren Eckstein “A cat is more intelligent than people believe, and can be taught any crime.”-Mark Twain Notebook, 1895 “I simply can’t resist a cat, particularly a purring one. They are the cleanest, cunningest, […]

Pay it forward doesn’t work! משיח אכן לא בא ואף אזני חמורו לא נראים באופק

Just bloody wondering when exactly did we lose it. The human guise that is. Just trying to put my finger on that precise moment when personal cannibalism took over basic human traits of solidarity and compassion. When instead of putting a coin in a homeless person tin, we simply kick them, to speed up their reunion […]

Why I worship Bastet – a reflection on cats and women!

“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.” Robert A. Heinlein (Have you noticed the identical eyes of  both cat and girl?) A historical note: Bastet (or formerly Baast, Ubaste, and Baset) was a goddess of  Warfare in the Lower Egypt in the period of the second dynasty […]
