Secret Meanings in Your Status.....What your Facebook posts say about your personality.....

Scientists have some very specific ideas about what you’re really saying in your Facebook updates.....Here's What Insecure People Post On Facebook......

There’s the old saying that you can’t believe everything you read, yet many experts in the psychology field are saying that Facebook postings can offer insight into someone’s personality. The most recent study comes from Brunel University in London, which found that numerous Facebookers are either dealing with low self-esteem or have traits of narcissism.

Researchers provided 555 Facebook members with an online survey that measured the “Big Five” personality traits, which included extroversion, neuroticism, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness. Self-esteem and narcissism were also analyzed. After gathering the data, the psychologists concluded that frequent updates about:

One’s romantic partner most likely indicates a person who has low self-esteem

Personal and professional achievements most likely indicates a person who is a narcissist being that they’re seeking “attention and validation from the Facebook community”

Healthy eating habits and exercise regimes also indicates a person who’s a narcissist since their likely goal is to receive compliments on their appearance 

According to study author Dr. Tara Marshall, sometimes the narcissists’ behavior works to their advantage. “Although our results suggest that narcissists’ bragging pays off because they receive more likes and comments to their status updates, it could be that their Facebook friends politely offer support while secretly disliking such egotistical displays,” she said in a formal statement.

According to online research, conducted by Brunel University in London the topic and frequency of your updates reveals a lot about your personality

War Criminal Openly Goes To Eric Clapton Concerts.....

Kim Jong Un's Older Brother Digs Eric Clapton

Since becoming supreme leader of North Korea in December 2011, Kim Jong Un has not publicly announced any foreign trips. His policy of avoiding foreign travel clearly does not extend to all members of the Kim family: 

This week, his elder brother Kim Jong Chul seen at an Eric Clapton concert in London. "He was having a great time, singing along to all the words," BBC journalist Simeon Paterson said. Kim Jong Chul previously saw Clapton in Singapore in 2011 and followed him to four German tour dates in 2006. 

U.S. diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks found that in 2007, North Korea unsuccessfully reached out to Clapton to perform in the country..

LOL...This story sounds like an outtake of The Interview

They should reach-out to Ted Nugent, who has called President Obama a
communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel. Nugent will do anything for money.

Citizen journalist by day and a janitor by night (AKA "participatory", "guerrilla" or "street journalist")
Introduction
Why, hello. Didn't see you come in, there. Welcome to my Google+ page. It's like my Facebook page, but with less blue.  

Just to get better acquainted, here are a few things about me. But I am legally required to provide you with this disclaimer....

Warning: I post and share alot! But everything I post or share is guaranteed to be interesting, intriguing, thought-provoking, or inspiring!

I'm an awsome geek, online journalist, husband, son, brother, friend, reader, animal  lover, community volunteer, i
nsomniac, trool, social media experimenter, hacker, searcher, sociological voyeur and eater of food. 

I like community theater and have often volunteered back stage in the past, but I have never been in a  performance..

Have been a fighter and survivor from day one. I was a breached baby who had his head crushed by a doctor using a head clamp to deliver me into this world. I have no right eye and the left eye is crossed, because of this.

Was raised by a single mother who worked two jobs to support my sister and myself. From the age of nine until my teenage years I watched and raised my younger sister, while my mother worked two jobs. In the middle of the ninth grade I left school to work.

Eventually, I took to traveling from town to town, I went from Florida, Texas, California, through the Midwest and eventually settled in New York / Connecticut.

Love to connecting with folks with similar interests and meeting new people. 
I also enjoy learning anything I can, because you can never have enough knowledge. 

An 
Internet Connoisseur, who is working on several website projects. I maintain and have archived several internet newsgroups. In the late 90's I founded All Nations Stamp Club, which was the largest hobby newsgroup at MSN groups.

Have a taste for non pop music.

Enjoy volunteering and have spent some time volunteering at food and homeless programs. I also have been involved in community programs like the 
Jaycees, the Elks and kiwanis.

Have worked as an election official and have held public office on the municipal level. I have spoken out at many public meetings about waste and wrong doing. This has brought me some trouble at times.

Because, I am self employed small business man I pretty much work 7 days a week. I don't take vacations and work on some holidays.

I have a beautiful Korean wife and two adopted children who are now grown men. The oldest son works in Indiana. The younger son is a Sargent in the army reserves and a student at the University of Arizona.

A few years back, I became a Christian and volunteer at the coffee bar for all four weekend services at Harvest Time Church in Greenwich, CT.

I cry easily when people are wronged.

Some of my favorite sayings are:

"If you can't be a shining example, be the horrible warning!"

"
I have a backup plan to back up my backup plan."
Bragging rights
I am a citizen Journalist, who posts daily odd ball and political news. I'm passionate about news, media, technology, social media, innovation in journalism. It has been said that I report on none of the news you need - and strangely have all of the news you want. Plus I am a Youtube and coffee junkie who should go to rehab.
Work
Occupation
Citizen Journalist, Janitor, and Hacker (in that order) Being Brian Harrod is a job sometimes. I use blogs to report on hyper local news stories and social networking sites to editorialize in national news stories. Other times I am a self employed owner of a janitorial services firm and a former owner of retail stores. I will soon be opening a new store with my wife. Disclaimer: The views expressed by me are mine (all mine!) and are also the views of my employer since I am self employed. So there.

On the second visit I noticed from the parking lot that cooks are preparing food in the open air behind the restaurant while smoking heavily. Looking over the counter into the kitchen it is easy to see it is not the cleanest place around. I decide to try another place. Most don't see the sanitary conditions, because many orders are delivered.
