Default Leonard Bernstein Young Peoples' Concerts...


Leonard Bernstein: Young People's Concerts | What Does Music Mean (Part 1 of 4)

my Aunt would turn on the tv on Sundays(?) afternoons when
we resided in NY...and my own organ/piano lessons got better and
better or I, at six got a bit better...I loved Bernstein, and my Aunt
and still do...and the music...always the music...good memories!
There, now you know more...Greco


Plot: Leonard Bernstein told the television audience at the start of the first young People's Concert: "No matter what stories people tell you about what music means, forget them. Stories are not what music means. Music is never about things. Music just is. It's a lot of beautiful notes and sounds put together so well that we get pleasure out of hearing them. So when we ask, 'What does it mean; what does this piece of music mean?' we're asking a hard question. Let's do our best to answer it." During the course of this first program the New York Philharmonic performs portions of Rossini's William Tell Overture, Beethoven's Sixth Symphony, and Ravel's La Valse.


Leonard Bernstein: Young People's Concerts | What Does Music Mean (Part 3 of 4)

this is Part 3, and wanted to post it because of Bernstein's use of painting as
an example...except, a painter can see images in music...yes. And for me, the
music led me to color, images...and other mysterious things...smiling...enjoy.

if you've "traveled" with me this afternoon through all the treasures of

And go to last posts on page 14 for more genius pianists.

Default Cal Newport in... the Telling...Food for Thought


Quit social media | Dr. Cal Newport | TEDxTysons

Greco

"Cal Newport is an Assistant Professor
of Computer Science at Georgetown University.
In addition to studying the theoretical foundations
of our digital age, Newport also writes about the
impact of these technologies on the world of work.
His most recent book, "Deep Work", argues that
focus is the new I.Q. in the modern workplace and
that the ability to concentrate without distraction
is becoming increasingly valuable.
He previously
wrote So Good They Cant Ignore You, a book which
debunks the long-held belief that follow your passion
is good advice, and three popular books of unconventional
advice for students.

Jaron Lanier interview on how social media ruins your life

Deleted my instagram before I came across this video and
others and it has helped...deleted fb long time ago. For me, it's
2019, a new year and time for a big change in how I have used
social media for my business. Food for thought.

Greco

"Jaron Lanier, the Silicone Valley computer philosopher', thinks
social media is ruining your life.

In this interview Jaron Lanier talks about Facebook, YouTube, Google
and how the tech and social media giants are using algorithms to
record data about their users - and how internet algorithms shape
how we see the world and what were shown online."

Default Sean Parker, Chamath Palihapitiya in... the Telling...Food for Thought


Sean Parker, Chamath Palihapitiya - Facebook is 'Ripping Apart Society'

In their own words...damn, karma will be a bitch for these guys.

Greco

Sean Parker, ex-Facebook President on Nov 8th warns
how the site was deliberately designed to exploit human vulnerability:
1:06 - "God only knows what it's doing to our children's brains."


1:21 - "That thought process was all about: 'How do we consume
as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?'

And that means that we need to...give you a little dopamine hit every
once in a while [via likes, etc]...and that's going to get you to
contribute more content, and that's going to get you...more likes
and comments. It's a social validation feedback loop."


2:01 - "...the...creators [of fb]... understood this consciously, and
we did it anyway."

2:20 - Part 2
Chamath Palihapitiya joined Facebook as a developer when
the company was about a year old, becoming VP for User Growth.
His warning from Nov 10th:

2:33 - "The entire society is set up to not be patient anymore."

3:06 - "Consumer internet businesses are about exploiting psychology."
3:54 - "I feel tremendous guilt"
[over Facebook’s exploitation of consumer behavior ...its divisive
effect on society] ...


“Even though we feigned this whole line
of, like, ‘There probably aren’t any really bad unintended
consequences,’ I think in the back, deep, deep recesses of
our minds, we kind of knew something bad could happen,”

4:23 - “...we have created tools that are ripping apart the
social fabric of how society works. That is truly where we are.”

4:42 - “If you feed the beast, that beast will destroy you.
If you push back on it, we have a chance to control it and
rein it in.

And it is a point in time where people need to hard break
from some of these tools and the things that you rely on.
The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops that we have
created are destroying how society works.


No civil discourse, no cooperation, misinformation, mistruth.
And it's not an American problem. This is not about Russian
ads. This is a global problem.

So we are in a really bad state of affairs right now, in my opinion.

It is eroding the core foundations of how people behave by, and
between, each other. And I don't have a good solution.


You know, my solution is I just don't use these tools anymore.
I haven't for years. It's created huge tension with my friends.
Huge tensions in my social circles.”

5:55 - "... I... innately didn't want to get programmed, and
so I just tuned it out. ... And now to see what is happening, it
really bums me out."

6:41 - "...bad actors can now manipulate large swathes of people
to do anything you want."

6:58 - "...we compound the problem. ... We curate our lives
around this perceived sense of perfection because we get rewarded
in these short-term signals: hearts, likes, thumbs up.

And we conflate that with value, and we conflate it with truth.
And instead what it really is is fake brittle popularity
- that's short term, and that leaves you even more, and
admit it, vacant and empty [than] before you did it, because i
t forces you into this vicious cycle where you're
like, 'What's the next thing I need to do now?'
'cause I need it back.

Think about that compounded by 2 billion people. And then think
about how people react to the perceptions of others. It's
just... really, really bad."

7:51 - "I did a great job there [at Facebook], and I think that
business overwhelmingly does positive good in the world."

8:08 - "I can control my decisions, which is 'I don't use this shit.'
I can control my kids' decisions which is
'they're not allowed to use this shit.' ...

But everybody else has to soul search a little bit more about
what you're willing to do, because your behaviors...

You don't realize it, but you are being programmed."
9:05 - "Start by turning off your social apps and giving your
brain a break.

'Cause then you will at least be a little bit more motivated
to not be motivated by what everybody else fuckin thinks
about you."

9:18 - "...posting your fucking waffles online... is wiring
your brain for superfast feedback. ... So you're training
your brain here, whether you think it or not...

These things where you're spending hours a day are
rewiring your psychology and physiology..."

10:09 - "There's a reason why Steve Jobs was, like,
anti-social media.

I am telling you I am not on these fucking apps."


10:19 - "...I am proactively trying to rewire my
brain chemistry to not be short-term focused."


Sean Parker's talk is from the Axios event in Philadelphia
w/Mike Allen, Nov 8, 2017.

Chamath Palihapitiya's talk is from two days later, Nov 10, 2017
at Stanford. He is an owner of the Golden State Warriors and a venture capitalist.

Sam Vaknin: the TRUE toxicity of social media revealed

Food for thought. Frightening. Thankfully, our brains
have plasticity which will allow us to return to having the
ability for "deep work". Thing is that cutting off from this
conditioning is not easy, but it is not impossible.

Conditioning is what Pavlov did to the dogs in his research
on behavioral conditioning.

Last one folks.

Default Tonight


This is what I've learned...

Savor the warmth of her eyes

The Delicious scent of her skin

her incredibly complex intelligence

her sensualness

her creativity.

The courage with which she lives
her life.

The tender softness of her lips

her not so quiet surrender to
my desire.

Listen intently to her voice.
It will live in your ears forever.

Savor her, and the preciousness
of this moment...you will remember
it forever.

Appreciate all the wonder of her...NOW.

It is in fact, all we can take with us.
Beauty savored...loved...remembered.

Know that her surrender is a gift.

Dr. Cal Newport on Digital Minimalism - What it is & Why it Matters

"Cal Newport created a philosophy called digital minimalism, which
is the idea of reducing your digital life down to only the most important
core essentials. Remove the apps from your phone, then slowly
re-introduce only the ones that are the most useful and beneficial.
Take control of your smartphone, rather than letting it control you.

Digital minimalism is a philosophy of technology use. This philosophy
pulls from the concepts of minimalism, essentialism, the slow
movement, and the 80/20 principle, applying these ideas towards
your digital life."

Default Deep Work

Last one folks...


Why DEEP WORK is So Valuable, with Cal Newport

"Deep Work" by Cal Newport

"Your most valuable asset isn’t your house, car or
retirement portfolio. It’s your attention.

Most knowledge workers spend their day frantically
hopping between meetings, emails, phone calls
and social media.

But that’s not the best way to stand out in the
modern economy.

Emails are necessary, says author and professor Cal Newport.
They’ll keep you from getting fired. But they won’t get you
promoted.

In fact, his Deep Work Hypothesis states that the ability
to do deep work is becoming more rare, yet at the same
time, more valuable.

That means if you can train your mind to resist the
common distractions we all face, you’ll become more
valuable in the workplace, whether you’re self-employed
or traditionally employed.

The problem, however, is that most of are intimidated
by deep work. We welcome distractions from difficult
tasks that take a toll on our brain power.

How can you re-arrange your life to enhance Deep Work?
Here are a few tips:

#1: Recognize that every hour you spend on “shallow work”
is an hour that you’re not spending on deep, rare, valuable work.

#2: Don’t just focus on “cutting” — chopping email, cutting
social media. That’s a good start, but it’s not enough.

Instead, ask the question: “What’s the ideal deep work
vs. shallow work ratio?” — how many hours should I spend
on each one? — and structure your workday accordingly.

For example, you might decide to spend your time 50/50
on deep vs. shallow work. If that’s your ideal arrangement, you
might spend the first four hours of your workday
— 8 am to 12 noon — invested in deep work. Then take a
break for lunch, and spend the second half of your
workday — 1 pm to 5 pm — answering emails, participating
in meetings, etc.

Alternately, you could break up your deep work into
chunks — 8 am to 10 am, then 3 pm to 5 pm.
Use the 10 am – 3 pm stretch for the necessary
shallow work of emails, meetings and phone calls.

As a third option, you might block off 2.5 days per week for
deep work, and devote the other 2.5 days to shallow work.

However you arrange the workday, the most important takeaway
