When you go to your profile's Photos tab or https://plus.google.com/photos/highlights  you should see the Tag people -option on top of the albums.

Also when you open a photo in Google+ lightbox view, the "Tag people" option should be visible.

If you search for #Autobackup  on Google+, the "Tag people" feature doesn't appear there, not even if you open the photo in a lightbox view.  You need to copy the image to an album first.

The new Google Photos does not have the "Tag" feature.

Teach your kids empathy:

Nothing drives home a point faster than walking a mile in someone else's shoes. If your kids truly understand what someone else is going through, they're less likely to bully someone -- or passively witness others being bullied.


Help kids understand the line between funny and cruel:

Kids' online communication is often purposely ambiguous or accidentally cruel -- both of which can lead to misunderstandings. If drama starts brewing, ask your kid to call or speak face to face with their friend to clear it up.


Make sure they talk to someone (even if it's not you):

As kids enter the middle school years, their circle of friends and trusted adults widens. Kids need a responsible adult to confide in -- their school counselor, their music teacher, even the parent of a friend.Talk to your kid about who they can go to if trouble is brewing.


Help your kid be an upstander -- not a bystander:

Kids are hesitant to get involved, in case the bully turns their sights on them. But there are ways to allow your kid to work behind the scenes to reach out to the victim, get an adult involved, and prevent more cruel behavior.


Show your kid how to stop it:

Tell kids not to respond or retaliate. Not feeding the bully can stop the cycle. And -- if anything does happen -- save the evidence...

Oder Delta becomes the eighth "Rewilding Europe" area

"The Oder Delta, straddling the border area of Poland and Germany on the Baltic Sea coast, has today officially become part of the Rewilding Europe initiative. After three years of intensive preparations with many different authorities and stakeholders, four organisations agreed to start working together to put the area on the European map as an inspiring example of rewilding, for the benefit of both people and nature.
An event held today in Tanowo on the Polish side, with many local partners and stakeholders present, marked the start of this initiative.

The ‘Big Seven’ (Die Großen Sieben/Wielka siódemka) that will act as the most charismatic species in the area are white-tailed eagle, European beaver, European bison, elk, wolf, Atlantic sturgeon and grey seal – representing the great variety and connectivity in habitats that the Oder Delta already offers..."

Have you taught them to respect women?
Have you shown them with your own speech and behaviour that women shall be respected as equals?

"The hyperloop would consist of a steel, partially pressurized tube and various "pods" or "capsules" that can carry people, freight, and potentially cars.

“Just as aircraft climb to high altitudes to travel through less dense air, Hyperloop encloses the capsules in a reduced pressure tube,” Musk wrote in the white paper. “The pressure of air in the Hyperloop is about ⅙ the pressure of the atmosphere on Mars … a hard vacuum is avoided as vacuums are expensive and difficult to maintain compared with low pressure solutions.”

Motors on the pods themselves would create a cushion of air that would allow the pods to float within the tube, and they would be pushed along the tube by linear induction motors positioned along the inside of the tubes. These tubes would be powered by solar panels mounted on their outer surface.

Musk has said that for cities less than 900 miles apart, the hyperloop would be faster and cheaper than air travel and better than existing trains in just about every way. It would travel at just under the speed of sound, for passenger comfort and safety..."

WOW.  This is indeed fascinating.

There's a competition to design a pod, if you happen to be interested!

Hot kokko – Readers' photos of Midsummer bonfires

At least one good thing came of this year's chilly and wet Midsummer weather: no forest fire warnings, which meant that people were able to light bonfires all over the country and bask in their blaze. Here are some pictures that Yle readers sent in.

This is how the middle of the night looks like in Central Finland.
We get a sort of short dusk and then the sun rises again.

Further up north above the Arctic Circle the sun doesn't set at all for a couple of months.

Tonight is a party night:
Enjoy the summer, folks! :-)

It’s creeping up on us, it’s just around the corner, the days are long and the nights are magical, ghostly and filled with folklore.

It’s Midsummer and it’s celebrated with fire, the freshest of fresh food and myths about marriage and fertility!

Ancient Feast:

It was the cave men that noticed the sun lingering on in the sky, nature thriving and animals procreating. This was a great excuse for a party and Ukko, the pagan god of weather, fertility and growth was the guest of honour. When Christianity came on the scene, these practices were changed to commemorate the birth of St. John the Baptist. But old habits are hard to break and hence the bonfires and legends still exist today.

Best seen from a boat, the fires that implore the sun to stay with us just a little bit longer since the days are going to get shorter after this, can be seen along the Finnish shorelines.

Helsinki city may be very quiet during Midsummer but nearby there’s the island of Seurasaari where the traditions live on. Flocks of people gather there to watch the chosen lucky couple get married in the old church which is one of the museum buildings, take part in the games and the dancing and stand around the massive fire that is lit later on in the evening...

The weather is very much like the normal Finnish summer climate should be:  Cool, showers, wind, showers, rain, a bit of sunshine here and there...

My firewood outdoor BBQ requires +15°C for the pork and chicken to cook properly and at the moment it looks like we might just be able to grill tomorrow.  It's +14°C now, at 2 PM.

Thumbs up!

What will you do to celebrate Midsummer's Eve?

It's been chilly weather in Finland so the blooms are holding well...

Only about +10°C or 50 F at the moment:
The Finnish summer is still downloading.
