Comment Promote Compassion, Instead! (Score 1) 449

I recommend they (and all of us):
1. promote awareness of the suffering and needs of others, and
2. promote compassion, kindness, consideration, gratitude and charity,
3. promote awareness of own behavior, the outcomes of our own actions.

"Sow A Compassionate Thought, Reap A Compassionate World
Sow A Compassionate Thought, Reap A Compassionate Action;
Sow A Compassionate Action, Reap A Compassionate Habit;
Sow A Compassionate Habit, Reap A Compassionate Example;
Sow A Compassionate Example, Reap A Compassionate World."

Comment Multi-Algorithm? (Score 1) 126

Google has had a number of algorithms to rank search results over the years. Some people liked some better than others.

That way I can try Algorithm #2 or 3 if Algorithm #1 isn't giving the results I want.
