    I am sure I will get into trouble for this…. 

    No words really needed.

    For some time the flow of emails from offshore companies (offshore is a great term here, how far do they have to be before offshore becomes other side of the world?) had slowed to a trickle. Then our very own Mr Cameron took his high power delegation to inja and once again the emails have started. How many of these companies can there be?

    I received emails this week from a number of different companies in India offering services, the first email told me they wished to talk of their enchanting gamut of services. I almost booked the call just to understand what it was they had to offer, really an exciting gamut of services, what does that actually mean I wonder? Then the attached picture arrived!

    Another told me they ‘gad great quatity’ in their service. Their quatity was so good they even spelled india without the capital I.

    The list of well know elearning companies they claim to be using their services gives great cause for concern. Ask your vendor if they are outsourcing, if they are ask what they are doing to check the quatity.

    Then call me. Great week of funny blogs….

    Peter Pan cannot fly… Shanghai Blog.. 

    It makes me smile just to type this short blog, but one I have to report.

    In China if you work in the service industry, (that’s anyone from the three staff in every public bathroom to the 4 people at the door of the restaurant who bow and say “huanying” as you enter and “xièxiè” pronounced ShiShi as you leave) you have to have a name that can be pronounced by foreigners. 

    Foreigners? Not very PC, well when you arrive in China the two lines say  Citizen of China and Foreigners.

    So these English sounding names, how do they get them? For some when they are 100 days old they are given an English name at a very posh ceremony, for some individuals they take an English name or phrase because it sounds good. Some of these are names of pop stars, of a favourite band or even the name on the favourite packet of biscuits. Others get their name from HR, they are given the name when they start work with an explanation of it’s meaning.

    Two such names were sported by the waitresses working the bar in our hotel. The first was ‘Sherry’, as she explained from the Spanish drink.  The second was ‘Echo’, she spent some time expraining to us that it was a famous name from Engrand. Maybe I should visit Engrand some time and look up Echo!

    The one however that had us all smiling and created the most discussion was the poor Training Manager who gave me his name card and in astonishment I saw his name was Peter Pan. He was about 6 foot tall (very tall for Chinese), he had no green outfit or pointy hat and even though I looked I could not see the fairy ‘Tinkerbell’ anywhere.

    So just to let you folks know, Peter Pan is alive and well, hiding in normal clothes in Shanghai. And he cannot fly!

    Here is one to make you think 

    You have a box of ‘bits and pieces’ and after using some items from the box you are left with just one item…

    Would it be a ‘bit’ or a ‘piece’

      Bits are less importnant than pieces semantically… IMHO

    Water water everywhere… 

    I may have found the perfect learning tool  WATER


    Some facts about water:


    Up to 60 percent of the human body is water, the brain is composed of 70 percent water, and the lungs are nearly 90 percent water.  About 83 percent of our blood is water


    To remain healthy, an adult must drink 8ozs of pure water  for every two waking hours.

    Although a person can live without food for more than a month, a person can only live without water for approximately one week.


    A 2% drop in body water can trigger short-term memory loss.

    75% of the earth is covered with water. There are 326 million cubic miles of water on earth.

    The average person uses 80 to 100 gallons of water each day. During medieval times a person used only 5 gallons per day. It takes 2 gallons to brush your teeth, up to 7 gallons to flush a toilet, and about 25 gallons to take a shower.


    Dr. Masaru Emoto has opened up an exciting scientific frontier about the effect our words can have on our life. His latest explores how the vibration and resonance of our words can change our life by transmitting the positive energy where it is needed inside us. Dr. Emoto’s latest book filled with trademark water crystal photographs, The Miracle of Water,  looks at how sensitive and receptive water can be in the presence of positive and negative thoughts. During his research, he noticed that the most beautiful and symmetric crystals formed when the water was exposed to the words love and gratitude while deformed or lopsided patterns appeared following the phrases you idiot and you can’t do it.


    Receptive water? 


    As  60% of the fat free mass of the human body is made of water, could we prepare this water before we drink it to contain not just positive thoughts but actual knowledge?


    At this stage I would not blame for thinking I have already had too much to drink or gone completely mad.  I write this well before Christmas. Actually I am typing this at 8am on a Sunday morning, so no drink at all, not even the morning coffee yet!


    Have a look at the website http://www.h2omwater.com


    Om?  Om is a sacred syllable that is considered to be the greatest of all the mantras, or sacred formulas. Used in meditation the syllable Om is composed of the three sounds a-u-m.

    H2Om water with intention’ is the world’s first interactive natural spring water. Infused with the power of positive energy through words, music, colours, symbols and you.


    What is Water with Intention?


    Designed to inspire you, they claim each bottle of H2Om promotes positive thinking, and positive energy for people and the planet. 


    Their  trademark slogan “Think it while you Drink it”® is designed to inspire us to use the positive words on the label as the driving force in creating our intention.


    Their vision for H2Om is to spread positive energy, inspire people to visualise amazing possibilities in their lives, and carry those vibrations throughout the world. Of course while drinking their water!

    But that’s not all, they don’t just print positive words on the label, they play music and positive speech to the water while they bottle it. They call it VIBRATION HYDRATION™.


    They claim, “The final energetic frequency is the power of thought. Your ability to connect to the water, create your own intention, and literally, Drink the vibration inspired and supported by the words on the label. As you drink, take a moment to use the words, colours, music, and vibrations as the driving force behind your own intention! Set your world in motion, then watch as the law of attraction goes to work for you.


    There is obviously much research needed in this area, if as they claim we can hear and feel the vibrations added to the receptive water, while it was bottled, as we drink it. If we could charge the receptive water with the correct words and information, all we would need to do to learn would be to drink. Simple technology of the future. Could you imagine the bottle of Microsoft Word water, drink and know how to type a letter.

      My thoughts did turn to whether this may be long or short term memory and if the size of your bladder had any bearing on how much memory retention of what was contained in the water. I decided not to go there.

    Although water with VIBRATION HYDRATION™ is not free, (About US$1.50 a bottle) it may be a very cheap source of high tech learning for the future.  


    Maybe the Holy Grail of finding something for free should turn its efforts to finding something relatively cheap instead. Maybe we stop looking for the Goblet, but rather what goes in it.

    By the way, it comes with free shipping in California! Where else?


    For the totally sceptical amongst  you, you can sleep without worry tonight as vendors like myself still remain in the marketplace willing to offer you other technological solutions that come in either a download or on a disc, also with free shipping from £20.
