Why I no longer yahoo for yahoo. Part I
I used to love yahoo groups. And even though Facebook has taken over a lot of the communications, what yahoo groups had going for it was ruined with the recent changes.
Instead of improving their strengths. Yahoo made the groups less useful. I have closed a couple of my groups because of this.
Groups used to provide a website that was dedicated to your group. I used that feature for a couple clubs. Need an address? Go to the membership list. We had pictures posted in the photos. Had a picture of members on the top of the page. Calendar feature sent automatic reminders of meetings. Members could easily find the different features.
I had groups centered around the calendar feature. Family cottage. Who is using it when. When is it available. Very few emails sent. Someone left a pink dog leash; anyone knows who it belongs to? Another group sent out family birthday reminders, had family addresses, and we did email to each other. That group, other than the birthdays has been taken over by Facebook. But Facebook doesn't send out reminders for all the grandchild's birthdays... So we keep the yahoo group because of that.
Then I had several groups centered around the file feature. We share public domain music. Whenever I posted more music, the member got an email with a link to the music. Another group sends out newsletters. When I posted the newsletter, an email went out automatically with the link.
So what happened to groups? They made the emails the most important feature. When I sign in to groups I get a web page with just emails. If I go to one of the individual group pages, the website is gone from it's old format. The calendar is harder to use. If I post a file, members don't get an email with the link. I can't send out a link to one file. I can only send a link to the page. Yahoo automatically sends out an email telling members that I posted something to the files, but not what or where. Pretty useless for the newsletter or music.
So I will now take a look Google groups and see if there are any alternatives. Started a Facebook group for one of the groups that I deleted.
It would have been better if yahoo had worked with it's strengths and accepted that it was not going to be Facebook but had something that Facebook doesn't offer and improved on that. What club wouldn't want an interactive club website where you can post like Facebook but that is just a feature. It would have a membership list that could be private for members only, calendar, pictures posted by members, calendar that has events that sends out reminders or not. The files were like they used to be where I could send the exact link to members.
So Yahoo. This is what I would like Yahoo groups to become. Take a look at BigTent.com. Change it to a working website for clubs/groups. Can eliminate ads if we pay something but free if you don't mind some small ads on the page. Make a group webpage that has the calendar, group's picture - don't make it a banner. Something we can take with our camera. Public forum for questions about the group. Private forum for members only. Posts can be emailed to members. Newsletter capabilities. Files for newsletters, etc. Current files are nice. Can set up folders. Photos that are uploaded - some of them show on the webpage. Posts like on Facebook. The groups on Facebook really don't work that well for anything other than posting comments and replies. Want more than that.

Why Native Americans Keep Their Hair Long (you won't believe this)
Have you ever wondered if Native Americans keep their hair long?
Is it a fashion statement or just a custom or tradition?
Far from it!
Government studies revealed that when the government was recruiting Native Americans who were the best trackers and hunters of their tribes, suddenly lost their skill when they entered the army and serious casualties resulted.
"When questioned about their failure to perform as expected, the older recruits replied consistently that when they received their required military haircuts, they could no longer 'sense' the enemy, they could no longer access a 'sixth sense', their 'intuition' no longer was reliable, they couldn't 'read' subtle signs as well or access subtle extrasensory information."
The testing institute then initiated various tests where several men were allowed to wear their hair and beards long and others were not. Performance seriously improved in 'sensing' enemies approaching. When the hair was cut, their performance went down. These tests were done over and over again according to this article by C. Young.
I love this part when it states that: "Not only does hair in people, including facial hair in men, provide an information highway reaching the brain, hair also emits energy, the electromagnetic energy emitted by the brain into the outer environment. This has been seen in Kirlian photography when a person is photographed with long hair and then rephotographed after the hair is cut.
"When hair is cut, receiving and sending transmissions to and from the environment are greatly hampered. This results in numbing-out .
"Cutting of hair is a contributing factor to unawareness of environmental distress in local ecosystems. It is also a contributing factor to insensitivity in relationships of all kinds. It contributes to sexual frustration."
[Ladies beware, men who are reading this will now grow their hair by the masses, and when they do, watch out! Better get your work-outs in now, you'll be needing 'em. ]
"The story of Sampson and Delilah in the Bible has a lot of encoded truth to tell us. When Delilah cut Sampson's hair, the once undefeatable Sampson was defeated."
Okay, now I know why I think men with long hair are hot and why women with short hair are not! It's an intuition thing - who would have thought!?
So what about those shaven heads? Many truth seekers shave their heads completely. What's that all about?
In ancient Greece, long hair used to be a symbol of wealth and power, while a bald, shaven head was the sign of a slave.
As for me, I think I'll be placing a classified ad online with the specification that I am looking for one long-haired, furry, beared, teddy bear!http://corefreedom.com/threads/why-native-americans-keep-their-hair-long-you-wont-believe-this.250/

|Crop Circle Secrets Revealed|
[Nice website. Go the the website and read more. It will convince you that cropcircles are not created magically in minutes by spaceships....]
Crop Circle Wisdom at one time believed that crop circles were the creation by Aliens and by other Paranormal means. We were pulled in by the phenomenon through its mysterious grip and the authors of many books, DVDs and respected names within. So we embarked on a journey to seek knowledge, wisdom, spiritual enlightenment, research,discovery and that fated word ' The Truth '. We experimented in various ways, ways where we attempted interaction with an Entity which we strongly believe responded in a way which many will find as uncomprehending.
Such interaction and the many sightings strengthened our belief that all crop circles were created by such entities which encouraged us to dig even deeper until such time where slowly but surely other dark knowledge held within the minds of men soon begun to reveal the real secrets of Wiltshire.
What we discovered will only be recognized by a select few simply because our discoveries will be masked and ridiculed by the ones who have controlled the phenomenon for decades, by the ones who don't want to lose their dignity and credibility by admitting that they knew all along that they created a deceptive illusion in order to keep a magical mystery alive and self gratification, it is them who are also controlling you. We all need to believe in something that's for sure because it does give us hope and inspiration but at what price to your own spiritual well being ? . Does enlightenment come to you through the tricks of men or does it touch your soul through factual knowledge ?
Some will find it hard to accept that there is an actual mystery or a phenomenon but its not what you may wish for or think it to be or wish to understand or even to comprehend. Crop circles are created by very talented human artists who feel inspired and connected with their art and the spirit of the historic landscape. I speak only for a handful of such artists ( and they know who they are) as they may or may not know that they have a special gift where they are also interacting with an entity who observes and may help to create through consciousness rather than through physical means. The art that these artists produce may indeed be something very special and informative and could be a symbolic language between us and the entity which is in jeopardy of not being recognized as so. We are not referring to amateur creators of Spirograph patterns but there again I suppose its good practice for them as they will become the future generation of circle makers.
Circle making is an illegal act unless permission is granted by the farmer hence the circle makers create their art in the dead of night where they can slip away unnoticed and of course remain anonymous but sadly individual circle makers who deserve credit, never receive credit or credibility for what they do by you the public as crop circles are made by paranormal entities - right !!?
Circle makers have demonstrated that in some cases they will take curious tourists along with them to create beautiful formations, don't be afraid to ask around if you are one of the curious ones but one warning your bubble of belief will burst as you will see for yourself the flocks of believers, the tourists and the theories pouring in few days later. Your eyes will also open when you yourself will find plant anomalies within a crop circle which you helped to create - simple botany Mr. Holms !
Believe in what you want to believe as long as an experience is yours at a personal level where you know that your eyes and mind have not fooled you and always keep in mind that man has the ability to be very creative as well as deceptive. Let any influence be your own and allow the light of truth and wisdom to enter your immortal spirit. God Bless.
PLEASE CONSIDER THIS: It is a FACT that HUMAN CIRCLE MAKERS have inadvertently attracted an observing entity !
