Q&A About Social Media for Busy People

Over the last couple of days, I've been getting four questions over and over about the Ashland April social media coaching group. So I thought I would just answer them here for everyone. 

1. I have a meeting/vacation/trip planned during the next 6-week session. Will I need to be present every week - or can I catch up when I get…

The Fact That It's January, 2010, Means We're Not In Kansas Anymore!

I don't know about you, but when I tuned in to watch the ball drop at Times Square and I saw "2010" show up and start flashing, I had a feeling I've never had before.

It was really something to see "2010" because it's a whole new kind of number than 1980 or 1999 or even 2000 or 2009. I don't know how to describe the difference for me except to say that I hadn't imagined living in a time when the date looked like that. Maybe you know… Continue

It's Music - Not Football, Soccer, or Even Politics - That Will Change the World!

On this first day of 2010, I woke up to Mary Jasch's pointer to this vid and I simply have to share it here.

Throughout the holidays, I've found myself in one conversation after another with the theme, "How can I change things?" "How can WE change things?" "What can little ME do to make the world a better place...…

Great Media I Want to Share!

For Everyone Sliding Over the Hill...Kicking and Screaming The Whole Way.
When friends and neighbors started telling me shortly after I moved into a condo at Mountain Meadows that I was "too young to be here," I threatened to start a Youth Group.

Yay!  We're actually going to do it!   Blvd. Cafe sounds great to me.  See you then.

How about Thursday about 4:00 -- I keep hearing from all these folks I know that I have to meet Meri Walker.  Hope to connect soon.

Thanks Meri, We'll talk soon.

Hi Meri just trying to understand these social networks. You gave me a grounding and I need to spend many many more hours really getting a good grasp of it. I feel like I am a new beginner driver and I am afraid I will forget how to shift or brake or something else I didn't even know i was supposed to know...And i am so happy when I am able to complete a search or upload or share... I spent an hour with Johnny V. today and he helped me put this ARC web page together. It was fun. So I will ask you questions when I have them...Thanks

Yipes! No, I've not heard anything back. Hope that's not the case as that's more than icky! I was surprised to see the request as I don't know her, but thought maybe she was new to the area a trying to make some contacts with folks who've got similar interests .... I would, however, have nothing in common if you suspicions are accurate... good luck with that.

Sure - I'm free afternoons typically. When you want to meet let me know, we'll see if the timings work out.

Yup! See you then.
At 9:37am on July 1, 2009, Susan Kramer-Pope said…
Rather than supper, what about getting a cool drink and hanging out by the creek or under a big tree, in the park, say around 3:30, 4:00. I have two Britt chairs I can bring. If you like this idea, I'll come by and get you and we can take it from there.

I did check out StepRep and it seems like a good application. I am available next week, probably Thursday 7/9 would be best, or Fri 7/10. Late afternoons are good rather than middle of day. What will work for you?

My class has only 2 spaces left! I am thrilled and very much looking forward to it. What's StepRep?

China reassigns 60,000 soldiers to plant trees in bid to fight pollution | The Independent

China has reportedly reassigned over 60,000 soldiers to plant trees in a bid to combat pollution by increasing the country's forest coverage.  A large regiment from the People's Liberation Army, along with some of the nation's armed police force, have been withdrawn from their posts on the northern border to work on non-military tasks inland. The majority will be dispatched to Hebei province, which encircles Beijing, according to the Asia Times which originally reported the story. The area is known to be a major culprit for producing the notorious smog which blankets the capital city.

Good News: This Year's Monarch Butterfly Migration Is Larger Than We've Seen in Recent Years | Better Homes & Gardens

Every autumn, monarch butterflies migrate across the U.S., heading south (and in some cases, west) for the winter. They are one of the few butterfly species that makes such a long migration—it can be up to 3,000 miles, and they often travel in such large groups that they fill the sky with their orange-and-black wings and blanket vegetation when resting. But over the past two decades, their numbers have been steadily declining, to the point that this insect is being considered for the endangered species list. Since 1997, when an estimated 682 million monarchs swooped through the air, the population has dwindled as low as 25 million monarchs in 2014 before rebounding to 150 million in 2016. So when reports of this year’s migration seem to indicate more of these winged wonders than usual, it could be a sign that their populations are continuing to make a comeback.

Germany to close all 84 of its coal-fired power plants, will rely primarily on renewable energy | Los Angeles Times

Reporting from Berlin — Germany, one of the world’s biggest consumers of coal, will shut down all 84 of its coal-fired power plants over the next 19 years to meet its international commitments in the fight against climate change, a government commission said Saturday.

New urban algae canopy produces as much oxygen as four hectares of woodland | The Plaid Zebra

An urban canopy created with algae has got people talking about the link between technology and environment. According to Gizmag, the bio-digital structure pumps a fluid with microalgae around a transparent shelter, which in turn produces shade, energy in the form of biomass, and an impressive amount of oxygen amounting to the equivalent of four hectares of woodland. When it comes to photosynthesis, microalgae organisms are ten times more efficient than large trees and grass. Buildings and architectural surfaces are efficient spaces to utilize this technology.
