we need to follow some basic rules to keep out of trouble in our email communications.
* Don’t send an email to anyone with whom you have a “strained” relationship.
* Don’t send an email when you haven’t first carefully read their email!
* Don’t send an email when you’re angry.
* Don’t send an email that you wouldn’t want the whole world to see! (The “forward” command will insure that everyone on the planet will have access to that response!)
* Don’t send an email when you’re trying to justify something you’ve said or done.
There are times when email just doesn’t cut it.
* When you’re trying to conduct a nuanced conversation with lots of complex issues
* When you need to have them clarify something they’ve said… you need to see their “metacommunication” (body language, tone of voice, eyes…)
* When that’s your ONLY method of communication with that valued person.
So stop and think before you hit the “Send” button!
Amy Ridenour’s National Center Blog
I’ve come to believe that anyone who wins a major award is best avoided. Awards seem mostly to go to the scum of the Earth.
There was a study done at the Open University found that in elementary schools, for every Â£100 spent on books, students grades improved by 1.5% – and for every Â£100 spent on computers, grades improved by 0.7%. So books are twice as good as computers for this … So it’s not necessarily that I should study history by clicking on some web pages, but that we should teach about these electronic media forms and how to use them. The value of that education would be immense.
MaxedOutMama: The Law Of Life
Anyone who claims that Israel is endangeriing Lebanon’s democracy by its actions is deeply self-delusive. If Lebanon is to become a true democracy, Hezbollah must stop being a private army that holds itself above and immune from Lebanese law. No one can sanely deny these definite effects of different course of action, and anyone who attempts to deny them is an immoral person. We must summon up the courage to say this persistently; if we want peace we must first have accountability. Praying for peace without acknowledging the prerequisites of peace is a false prayer
