※ 발췌 (excerpts): 


While we're on the subject of My Beloved Luis, remember his open letter to us when he left? Pure class. Torres could learn a lot from him about how to show your former club's fans what their support meant. At the time, I was gutted when Torres couldn't be arsed to address us, considering that we sang and cheered for him even when he was donkeying around the pitch with a face like a dying duck He didn't have to say anything to alienate himself from the Chelsea fans, but a simple thanks would have done, just some form of acknowledgement.



Last night we did not end up working out because the roof was literally on fire. No one was hurt, but the roof deck area was severely damaged. We waited for like 20 minutes, and they were not letting anyone in. So we went over to the wine bar that is conveniently a block away. After a glass of wine, they still were not letting people inside. So we ordered second glasses.

We thought about getting up for the early CF class, but then the alarm went off again around midnight. We had just dressed and made our way outside when it turned off again.

Earlier, SSO had tried get met to go to the earlier class, but I was donkeying around with code and indications, and said we should just go to the later class. We would've missed the fire if we had. ( ... )



People make mistakes. It is inherent in our human nature to make mistakes. As a Denver new media agency we realize that the true accomplishment is how someone overcomes those mistakes. In recent history we have seen more businesses struggle with how they can overcome sometimes simple and sometimes serious mistakes. We will be looking at creative and effective ways to overcome any issues a company online may encounter while "Donkeying around."

In the social media community we have seen several instances when those in control of the social media accounts at their companies have been caught "donkeying around." The most memorable was when a Red Cross manager tweeted about his weekend activities from the Red Cross twitter account. How did the Red Cross recover from this incident? They made a campaign out of it! This week we will show a few different instances of "donkeying around" and some ways to handle the situation and turn it into something positive for the company.

Address It

First there are the incidents where you address the situation. This would be where a slip-up has happened either in a software auto-correct or posting from an incorrect online account where consumers have noticed the post. When addressing a situation a company admits that something has happened but it is not going to make a big deal out of the situation. They will acknowledge it once or twice and then move on. A company may have to apologize or simple laugh at their mistake and then keep going with their usual plans.

Embrace it

These type of incidents deal with a business which has a social media mess-up has already exploded and gone viral. This can be something which is negative or simple embarrassing (...). After the above-mentioned post, the Red Cross first addressed the tweet in question. During the situation and once the Red Cross had been addressed there were several businesses and decided to embrace the situation and actually work with these individuals and businesses to use the situatin to encourage donations.

Avoid It

Avoinding an incident is not something which is encouraged, however there are few times where this is plausible. This would happen more in an auto-correct or misspelling situation. When the poster realizes the moment it has been sent out, they can oftetimes then correct the post immediately without having to address the situation. However, the moment which someone else sees the post, the company should address the situation.

No one likes to acknowledge their mistakes. There are times, however, when acknowledging the mistakes can bring big things. Hopefully the next time you've been caught "donkeying around" you can take one of these steps to recover from the situation with class and style. ( ... ... )


New Left people, with exceptions, don't dig the drug sceneㅡoh, pot, that's all right now and then, but none of that zoom stuff. The Yippies felt in the beginning of Convention Week that many people in the New Left were the pigs of the revolution. New Left people are not noted for agreeing among themselves, but they are generally of middle-class origin, and there were a lot of working-class kids who called themselves Yippies in Lincoln Park. Yippies are impulsive, and New Left people try to plan everything, even though they have had the tenor of an existential ideology, making it up as you go along, with a cautious basis in class concepts. Yippies and hippies feel that New Left people are often stolid and a bit out of it. As with most groups who have fundamental disagreements and agreements, they tend to talk about the disagreements behind each other's backs and welcome each other with the agreements. On Monday afternoon, after the absured breakthrough of the night before and just before the dramatic seizure of the equestrian statue of Union General John A. Logan in Grant Park, there was a Mobe organized demonstration in Grant Park in front of the Hilton which had proceeded from Lincoln Park in protest over the arrest of Tom Hayden. The demonstrators were donkeying around and around as asphalt path in the familiar pattern, but a lot of Yippies were sitting on the grass inside the circle and outside of it, staring sullenly at the Hilton. An SDS leader bellowed over the portable speaker, "If you are sitting on the grass, you liable to a bust. Join the march!" The Yippies stayed right where they were sitting on the grass and stared at the Hilton, unmoved by any New Left exhortations, ready for something else, ready to seize and ride the Logan statue. 

There were other student war-resisters outside the donkeying march talking with a small group of sailors and Air Force men, all in uniform, about the War in Vietnam and about war-resistance. One sailor, with rangy, ruddy face and blond hair, frankly admitted that he had joined the Navy to avoid getting killed in the ground-fighting in Vietnam. He was not affected by the brotherly, almost slavish intensity of the young, bushy-haired student's gentle, excited arguments. ( ... )
