-- Prime Minister David Cameron said Britain would be "absolutely resolute" in the face of extremism Thursday, as he vowed security services will not rest until they track down those responsible for the brutal hacking death of a British soldier in London. Our hearts go out the families who have been affected by this horrifying incident as it happens without warning. It seems we have reached a time in civiliztion where unexpected deaths happen without fair warning. We need to make our family, friends, and co-workers more aware of our surroundings and relationship tendancies with those of our present, past and future. We can no longer believe that people have personal issues under control or monitored. We have to step in and evaluate each individual and if their behaviors don't make sense, we should question it without prejudice. It's a topic for discussion, and who has the best solution to help?

One dictionary defines a meeting as an act or process of coming together as an assembly for a common purpose.
A meeting is a gathering of two or more people that has been convened for the purpose of achieving a common goal through verbal interaction, such as sharing information or reaching agreement. Meetings may occur face to face or virtually, as mediated by communications technology, such as a telephone conference call, a Skyped conference call or a video conference.
Commercially, the term is used by meeting planners and other meeting professionals to denote an event booked at a hotel, convention center or any other venue dedicated to such gatherings. In this sense, the term meeting covers a lecture (one presentation), seminar (typically several presentations, small audience, one day), conference (mid-size, one or more days), congress (large, several days), exhibition or trade show (with manned stands being visited by passers-by), workshop (smaller, with active participants), training course, team-building session and kick-off event.
There are many types of meetings, so which one's do you find most productive in your field of work?
‘No emancipation for the Smith kids,’ Will Smith joked on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ Wednesday.
Jaden Smith said he's "not going anywhere" for the next 20 to 30 years.
The "After Earth" father-and-son acting duo dismissed emancipation rumors on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Wednesday after a slew of reports indicated that Will, 44, supported his son's request.
"The thing that people don't get is that everything at his house is free," the 14-year-old Smith told the daytime talk show host while motioning toward his dad. "I can get anything and everything at his house so I think I'm gonna be there for 20, 30 more years."
The elder Smith laughed while letting his son set the record straight. Jaden even clarified what would give the green light for him to move out on his own.Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv-movies/jaden-smith-addresses-emancipation-rumors-article-1.1344877#ixzz2TSpFEFMp
Square has put a target on gun sellers. The mobile-payment service, run by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, amended its terms of service for retailers last week to ban sales of "firearms, firearm parts or hardware, and ammunition; or... weapons and other devices designed to cause physical injury."
A Square spokesman declined to comment on this specific change, but said: "From time to time we revisit our policies governing the use of Square to ensure they are consistent with our values and in the best interests of our customers." They denied that the move was related to the recent debate over gun control in Washington, calling the timing "completely coincidental."
Online-auction site eBay (EBAY, Fortune 500) also bans weapon sales, as does web-payment service PayPal.

After the biggest Atlantic storm on record struck the New Jersey shore last October, Seaside Heights Mayor William Akers was asked repeatedly if the town would rebuild in time to welcome summer tourists. “Oh, no problem,” he’d reply.
“The truth of the matter,” he says now, “is I had no idea.”

We live in a world of constant change today, and whether it's the weather, global donminance, business infrastructure, cultural behavior patterns, educational, financial, etc. We all can attest that there is some interaction between our social life and the many changes that take place around us. To define Interactionism in sociology, interactionism is a theoretical perspective that derives social processes (such as conflict, cooperation, identity formation) from human interaction. It is the study of how individuals act within society. Interactionist theory has grown in the latter half of the twentieth century and has become one of the dominant sociological perspectives in the world today. Interactionism was first linked to the work of James Parker. George Herbert Mead, as an advocate of pragmatism and the subjectivity of social reality is considered a leader in the development of interactionism. Herbert Blumer expanded on Mead's work and coined the term "symbolic interactionism". We hope more people become aware that their social behavior has either a positive or negative effect within their community. Be aware of your interactionism.
