Depending on where in Scotland the term 'Doss' is used, determines what meaning is intended to be conveyed. In Edinburgh for example, if Bob was to call his mate Tam a "Doss C..t", he would be using the term as an adjective to mean thick, useless, stupid. However, if the term 'Doss' is used in Perthshire, Angus where I'm from and the North East then it is generally intended to mean...Ace, fantastic, shit-hot etc...Edinburgh "Git a Fu..ing haud o yersel ye doss c..t." Perthshire "Did you see Liverpool in the European Cup last night, it was pure doss!" Every days a school day!!!
How am I conveying 'Doss'... & in which context, plus meaning? Well I'm playing around with words I'm being facetious, appropriate humour as opposed to inappropriate humour. Respectful again as opposed to disrespectful humour, respect is something that has to be earned and very little of that has been fairly or justly earned these days. The meaning to me is based on my fond childhood memories based on the Arbroath, Angus, Scotland analogy and terminology but for the purposes of this poignant post. My acronym has been abbreviated to serve a purpose of a view, opinion and perspective of the current 'Bigger Society.'
Depressed, Oppressed, Suppressed, Shagged. - "Doss Bigger Society."
Yes I'm being facetious but moving on swiftly it's quite appropriate that I've delayed my March post due to a mixture of reasons that I wont bore you with. Especially after the Archbishop of Canterbury's Justin Welby's first sermon, if it's meant to be it will be and March's post was meant to be written today. Perhaps there were greater forces at work delaying my wordsmith-ship to collaborate with other current events, parallels and synergies etc? The Ex-Oiligarchy who left the oil industry in 1989 obviously had a religious epiphany and calling, shame that hadn't rubbed off on some of the Oiligarchy I've met throughout the duration of this journey. He warned against "The Hero Leader" culture or putting our trust in one person as this can lead to false hope. Or as I would say no hope! He also said if we ignore "complexity and humanity" we end up "unreasonably disappointed" with everyone. He urged society to recognise "human fallibility" but in my opinion society as a whole knows we are only human and therefore are all fallible but it's politicians, bankers and captains of industry that seem to be immune to their failings! It's the rest of society that suffers financially for their continued failings. "Setting people or institutions up to heights where they cannot but fail is just mere cruelty, " he added. I beg to differ and disagree again, as it's politicians, bankers and bad stewardship that creates institutions that become too big for their boots or too big to fail based on lacks regulation, insufferable restraint via monopolies and mergers.
Lead by example, behaviour breeds behaviour, scholars and gentleman where have they all gone? If politicians cant practice restraint, how can they expect bankers to? and if politicians cant be prudent, cautious and conservative either, how again can they also expect bankers to follow a lead that does not exist? There in lies the problem!
CrossTalk via RT Crisis Capitalism No April Fool
We need to create Eco-Socially Responsible organisations for the people by the people globally. Allocentric in values, plus principles, community minded, concerned with the interests of others more than one's own. With a psychological dimension which corresponds to the general cultural dimension of collectivism, believe, feel, and act very much like change-makers and different shakers, plus collectivists do around the world. Preferential shares for individuals not institutions, that's the only way to change a corporate culture that is inbreed from the top down. People need to take the lead and lead by example, the initiative to create a new model that makes the old model obsolete. If we cap our own desires, aspirations, wants and needs, perhaps those at the top will inclined to follow suit. Allocentric people tend to be independent, define themselves in terms of a group that they are part of and behave according to that group's cultural norms. They tend to have a sense of duty and share beliefs with other allocentrics among their in-group. Allocentric people appear to see themselves as an extension of their in-group and allow their own goals to be subsumed by the in-group's goals. Additionally, allocentrism has been defined as giving priority to the collective self over the private self, particularly if these two selves happen to come into conflict.
So humanity has tried communism, socialism, capitalism perhaps it's now time for allocentrism. QU & ARK is following this ideology, philosophy & idealism.
Help us create a DOSS Bigger Society in the Angus and East Coast sentiment i.e. Ace, fantastic, shit hot...A's, B's and C's Attitude, Behaviour and Culture!
Documentary "The Spirit of Business & The Values of Principles"
Aim to be Michael Moore of Scotland, not mythological, true to myself, and my beliefs for a very successful and progressive Scotland via unique innovation, ideas, concepts and visions, that will continue sustainable lasting and meaningful legacies for Scotland! Through macro and micro initiative and "Method of Operating" being ignored or traceable, organic locally sourced incentives being wasted. We will be exploring Banking, Finance irregularities, and catastrophic failures, plus continual self centred preservation monopolies. Through to humongous calamities by bureaucrats, politicians via continual errors in judgment, detrimental to our wealth and well-being. Plus business and planning processes and the inconsistencies via a multitude of planning and business applications that have no consistent logic or coherent pattern? Scholars and Academics, Historians, Physicists, Psychiatrists through to various Professionals from different specialist areas and fields and Business People, plus ordinary folk will be involved in the process and partake via interviews. Wishing to contribute towards making a meaningful difference, evoking, plus proving significant change for the better of us all.

Therefore I have formed a Co-operative/Consortium like motive operandi applying inherent value and intrinsic value towards it current pledgeholders, future shareholders and anticipated investors. Beyond the mere principle value of itself and Co-operative/Consortium Partners, who share the same values and principles towards executing, performing and delivering overwhelming and unconditional current pledgeholders value, future shareholders and anticipated investors value and returns, beyond mere monetary values and principles but more importantly Ecological and Environmental dividends and returns. Towards making a substantial and prolific difference, through evoking, plus provoking necessary change in attitude, behaviour, culture towards the ecology, environment and the built environment.

Extremely admirable the protest and statement Doctor David Kennedy made. I would concur that Donald Trump is by no means an exemplar or shinning idealogy for students to admire or follow.
