Several articles have appeared regarding bears being attracted to trash cans in various neighborhoods over the past couple of months. It would be a good thing to remind readers that an excellent way to avoid this problem is to practice trash etiquette. This means not putting smelly garbage into your trash can. How can you do this? Simple: Freeze smelly garbage in your freezer and only put it into your trash can on the morning of your trash pickup. This is simple and not a big deal.

Etiquette is not about snobbish rules and class separation. It is a code of behavior and life skills that shows thoughtfulness, common sense and consideration toward others. Life often has changes and circumstances that arise for which one has no experience or training. Knowledge of etiquette helps to develop poise, confidence and self-esteem, and that enables one to handle the unexpected. Because business is often social and involves dining situations, knowledge of fine-dining skills can help to give one an extra edge and create a positive impression and trust.

If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty. If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.

Working with the Association of Image Consultants and Professor PM Forni of John Hopkins University, we are involved in a global effort to spread the message of civility around the world, one city at a time. Starting with the first city, Los Angeles, we issued a Proclamation of Civility for Los Angeles in May 2009. Manners are spontaneous reactions from the heart. Etiquette involves codes of behavior of kindness and consideration toward others. What is civility, and where did the concept originate?
