“A Clockwork Orange” (Anthony Burgess)

2 June 2019

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

[A Clockwork Orange, Dir. Stanley Kubrick, 1971]

I have been reading English Literature, a handbook written by Anthony Burgess. I liked it so much that I wanted to read something else. Then, I tried the difficult novel A Clockwork Orange. I had seen the film on TV (Stanley Kubrick, 1971 ) which I hated. I insist on this point: the novel is a nightmare of violence and cruelty. Despite the horrible story inside the novel, I thought I had to try it. I started reading the novel to discover a kind of teenager´s jargon, the nasdat. It seemed impossible to understand a word unless you had the appropriate glossary of the new language. I found out the one provided by Sparknotes.com. I could enjoy the reading of it. This language is hybrid, that is, a mixture of Russian, the funny rhyming Cockney slang and Burgess´ s imagination.

By the way, I read the novel in a kindle book.

“La burla que mata” (Elvira Lindo)

La burla que mata

ELVIRA LINDO (@ElviraLindo)

El País, 2.06.2019

“El linchamiento no es una invención surgida en las redes sociales, se apresuran a decir aquellos que temen que pueda ponerse en duda su existencia. Pero lo cierto es que han generado una suerte de desconexión con la realidad, que nos libera de la responsabilidad personal: al mismo tiempo que nos ofrecen mecanismos más sofisticados para amplificar un linchamiento nos inducen a creer que lo que vemos en una pantalla o lo que reenviamos depende de la voluntad de un yo virtual que no ha de responder a las mismas obligaciones que el real. Que antes de las redes éramos maledicentes, cotillas o crueles, capaces de hacer daño y también de acusarlo, está claro, pero todo iba más despacio, la burla se materializaba, se daba en mano, en un VHS, por ejemplo, que algunos entusiastas estaban locos por compartir. Ahora, la burla se viraliza en un segundo, y costará que entendamos que el ataque virtual provoca un daño verdadero. Es lamentable que reparemos en eso cuando ocurre una desgracia, pero estamos obligados a reflexionar sobre nuestro comportamiento digital.

Si compartir unas escenas íntimas sin permiso de quien en ellas aparece se puede cobrar una vida, también debiera tener consecuencias legales, laborales y sociales. Las legales están en marcha. Las laborales, no sé.” (…)

The funny rules on writing who William Safire wrote

12 May 2019

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

[William Safire, journalist]

There are several version of these rules. I keep this one. However, I have just found out a website with extra information.

*

William Safire´s Rules of Writing

(extract)

  1. Do not put statements in the negative form. Always write positive statements. The positive is stronger than the negative.
  2. And don’t start sentences with a conjunction. Do not start sentences with a conjunction. Conjunctions serve to connect words, phrases, clauses, and sentences, not to start them.
  3. If you reread your work, you will find on rereading that a great deal of repetition can be avoided by rereading and editing. Reread and edit your work to avoid repetition. Enough said.
  4. Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do. Never use a long word when a small one will do. Using a thesaurus and carefully selecting new vocabulary words can help improve your writing. In some sentences, however, simple is best.
  5. If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is. (…)

Tips for career building reading (Jeff Larche)

10 April 2019

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

Extract from:

“Tips for career building reading in 2018”

written

by

Jeff Larche:

“Let’s get started.-

To begin, I’ve put together tips on how to get the most value from your reading time. Let’s call it a Reading List User’s Guide.

Choose books as wisely as you choose friends. Author and entrepreneur Jim Rohn once wrote, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” The same can be said for the authors you welcome onto your bookshelf or into your Kindle. In many ways, I consider authors I respect actual friends. For instance, early in my career, when I had my own direct-response consultancy, I would silently thank Peter Senge for what he had taught me. I would walk into a potential client’s business for the first time and apply the knowledge I gleaned from reading his book The Fifth Discipline, which focuses on how organizations “learn to learn.” I would look around at office dynamics and know with surprising accuracy just how much of a “learning organization” I was observing. No company is perfect, but Senge had trained me to see the extent of each organization’s “learning disabilities”—and by extension, whether they would be good customers for what I was selling. Now, that’s a valuable friend!

Ask if popular books have truly earned their status. Good business books, like good speeches, should provide a strong mix of inspiration and education. Ask friends who have read a particular book what specifically they learned, or how they were moved. Listen closely to their answers. Much of the business world is ruled by groupthink, “FOMO” (fear of missing out) and trying to impress. Those impulses aren’t good enough reasons to read a book, even if it’s the one “everyone is reading.” It’s a surprisingly rare business book that deserves its popularity. I’m thinking of books like The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, which rode best-seller lists for literally years, and remains one of the best-selling non-fiction books of all time.Don’t be put off if your friends talk more to inspiration than education. The same year I first read (and learned a ton from) “7 Habits,” I was also deeply inspired by a different book, called The One-to-One Future. It was in the very early days of CRM (customer relationship management). And boy, did it inspire! It literally caused me to change my career path, a decision that is one of the best of my life. Last year, I derived similar inspiration from another book, The Business Blockchain. I haven’t changed my career yet, but you never know! (And thanks to Accenture’s deep involvement in blockchain, a lateral move within our organization isn’t out of the question for me.)

Vary your reading diet widely. Non-fiction books don’t have to be formally about business to help you with your career. When I read Dr. Deborah Tannen’s You Just Don’t Understand: Women and Men in Conversation, I realized that I wasn’t communicating clearly with roughly half the professional workforce (i.e., women!). By an embarrassing coincidence—and as though the world had a painful lesson to teach me—just as I was about to start the book, I nearly lost a client because she gave her instructions in something Tannen calls “rapport speak,” while I was hearing her through the filter of “report speak.” I screwed up an assignment and only realized how it happened after reading and internalizing the book. How’s that for valuable career advice!” (…)
