      Hi All,

      I am trying to follow the transition to Medium and the issues that are arising, I believe there is more than one technical glitches that are requiring coding and servers. There is also the standards that we may have breached inadvertently with the switch in platforms. So I thought I would give you a snippet of what I have seen.

      1.) Pundits are now the Editors, who will assist the Horton's in posting to the Yabberz main page. Your story may go to a pundit that has not checked their emails or doesn't know their position in this. This is something I believe is being fixed in the background.

      2.) Medium is a publishing site, meaning that the stories and discussion starters must adhere to standards in the publishing business. That is why there are editors and submission guidelines.

      3.) You do not have to pay for a membership: via Medium "Do you need a Medium membership to publish in the Partner Program? No, you don’t have to be a paying Medium member to join the Partner Program and earn money for your writing. Anyone with something to say can join for free and start earning. Your monthly membership fees go directly to the writers whose work you enjoy."

      4.) Once you publish your story on Medium it is on your profile. To submit it further to the Yabberz homepage requires you click on the bottom of said piece where there are three dots. One option is submit to Yabberz, highlight that and follow directions.

      5.) If you are unaware of publishing standards, citations and usage permissions, I suggest a review of this site.

      https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/purdue_owl.html

      6.) Medium is very strict on imaging permissions and copyrights, using free use images with citations is advisable as to not cross into a legal quandary. Here is a link to some sites that offer these services and free use.

      https://www.wabisabilearning.com/blog/15-open-source-image-resources

      7.) Medium is asking for people to use their voices and original content. So the plagiarism angles are going to be looked at in the whole, but I wouldn't worry about that part unless the copy paste becomes the standard.


      It is an absolutely huge site, a lot of people and areas to follow and these things take time to pick up. Go out and look around and find your interests. It is not a difficult place to post. It will also take time for folks to get used to change.


      Just my two cents. :)

          Easter Reflections

          A Day For Contemplation

          Why isn't a sunset called an "Earth-turn"?

          By Ray Cunneff

          April 21, 2019

          It's Easter Sunday and, even for atheists like myself, it's a day of reflection, of stock-taking, for contemplation of life's great mysteries and insights. Even the secular view of Easter teaches us not to put all of our eggs in one basket and that everyone needs a friend who is all ears. The grass is always greener in someone else's basket and some body parts actually should be floppy. Let profound thoughts multiply like rabbits.

          The best things in life are still sweet and gooey!

          Let's begin with some "Questions To Ponder":


          Why do they put Braille on drive-thru ATM's?

          Why do they use sterilized needles for lethal injections?

          Is there another word for "synonym"?

          Why did Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

          Do cannibals refuse to eat clowns because they taste funny?

          Doesn't it seem scary that doctors call what they do a "practice"?

          If a mime is arrested, do they tell him he has the right to talk?

          Would a wingless fly be called a "walk"?

          What was the best thing before sliced bread?

          What should you do if you see an endangered animal eating an endangered plant?

          If a man stands in the middle of a forest speaking when there is no woman around, is he still wrong?

          And now, "Deep Thoughts":

          Atheism is a non-prophet organization.

          A Tibetan monk enters a pizza parlor and says "please make me one with everything".

          If you go into a bookstore and ask for the "self-help" section, you'll be told you're defeating the purpose.

          "I am" is the shortest sentence in the English language and "I do" is the longest.

          Do Roman paramedics refer to IV's as "4's"?

          If you don't pay your exorcist, do you get repossessed?

          It is impossible to lick your elbow.

          The man who invests your money should not be called a "broker".

          One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.

          Finally, "Military Quotes":

          U.S. Army preventive maintenance magazine:

          "A slipping gear could let your M-203 grenade launcher fire when you least expect it, making you quite unpopular with what's left of your unit."

          U.S. Army rocket launcher instructions:

          "Aim towards the enemy".

          U.S. Marine Corps manual:

          "When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend".

          "Don't draw fire, it irritates the people around you".

          "If you see a bomb technician running, follow him".

          U.S. Air Force manual:

          "Cluster bombing from B-52's are very, very accurate. The bombs are guaranteed to always hit the ground".

          "It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over an area you just bombed".

          "Flashlights are tubular metal containers kept in your flight bag for the purpose of storing dead batteries."

          U.S. Army Infantry Journal:

          "If the enemy is in range, so are you".

          "If your attack is going too well, you're walking into an ambush."

          "The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire."

          Old Navy truisms:

          "There are more planes in the ocean than submarines in the sky."

          "Weather forecasts are horoscopes with numbers."

          "The Navy has a perfect record in aviation, we never left one up there."

          Happy Easter!

              Get over it.

              When you have allies like Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the bozo in Brazil, the Eastern European semi democracies, I mean really. It's all about hegemony and dominion, that game.

              The Russians haven't divided the country, sewing dissent, it's a divided country, the rich rule and the pretense is otherwise.

              Look at the manufactured crisis at the border, a direct result of US policies.Trump bragged about sending 150, ooo criminals from US prisons, back to Central America, gang bangers, to join the armies of the drug cartels.

              The Russians have serious nukes, and it makes sense to not demonize them with a new Red scare, as fake as the last one. Assange contradicts Mueller's official story? Not a smart move.

              I'd like to hear from Assange. Assange has a track record for accuracy. Mueller's report says he got the Podesta emails from the Russians. He said he didn't, argued with Amy Goodwin about it on DemocracyNow before he was silenced. He could adjust his recollections, say he got the emails from the Russians, published them. That's journalism! That might open a few doors he needs opening.

                  Hello - I published a story almost 2 days ago.

                  https://medium.com/@douglassabbag/douglas-w-sabbag-is-a-2020-presidential-candidate-8f7ec5522b69

                  Is anyone who visits the Medium/Yabberz site seeing it?

                  I don't see it on the Medium/Yabberz page, but on my Profile when I go to 'Stories' it indicates that this story is published?!

                  Plus, I have not paid the $5 fee, so perhaps only I can see it - from my profile????

                  I would appreciate it if you happen to be in the Medium/Yabberz site replying here to let me know if you see a story from me about my Presidential Candidacy.

                  Thank you.

                      I’ve had enough of the assumption and opinions that I’m somehow in an Army( I’m a Marine btw) with

                      Logic , to gang up on

                      Jake321 !


                      I categorically deny this erroneous opinion or thinking.

                      I simply tried to broker some kind of

                      Understanding that we’re fighting ourselves!

                      I know some folks here detest Farrakhan! And have their opinions of him.

                      I personally don’t detest him, nor do I follow or believe in EVERYTHING HE SAYS, or subscribe to.

                      I do however, agree with him with the system is unstable, unfair, unsympathetic, unsuited, to the issues to not only black peoples in America, but also to Palestine!

                      That’s it!

                      DougSabbag has made it clear too with his position on Israel

                      Who’s winning this debate?
