When you select "Organize", you can:

- Change your album's name, top left.
- Set a cover photo by hovering your mouse over the desired photo and click the "Album cover" bottom left: The album view must be set for larger thumbnails like in the screenshot below.
- Change the Order of your photos based on date taken, name, or reverse chronological order, from the arrow top right.
- Upload more photos to the album.
- Use the two buttons top right to change the size of your photo thumbnails.

When you're finished, click the Done button.

Move or copy photos to another album: Clicking Move lets you move or copy selected photos to one of your other albums or to a new album: This may change the degree of visibility of the photo.

Delete a bunch of photos:
- In Organize view only one-by-one by clicking on the trash can symbol
- In Album view: Click a photo / photos and then choose Delete from the top to delete the selected photos.


Changing the order of Google+ albums is not possible at the moment but there's a workaround:

Change a date in a photo and that changes the place of the album in your Photos tab.

We all need adventure in our lives. It is thought that through adventure, we learn some of the most important lessons. 

If this is truly the case, shouldn’t more of us be taking up skydiving? 
Shouldn’t we all take an Outward Bound course every year? 

Many of us, however, don’t want to take up an extreme sport, or don’t have the time or resources to travel frequently. 
And yet, we still find ways to have adventures; this is because to take risks, and to have adventures, we don’t need to be doing an adrenaline pumping activity or be halfway around the world in a rickshaw in India.

Drive through Finland in the summer and you’ll find two colours dominating the scenery: green and blue. The forested landscape is dotted with patches of water – or, in some areas, vice versa – so numerous they have earned Finland the nickname “the land of the thousand lakes”.

You are all well aware by now that content is vitally important to your business.

But how do you decide which content should be freely available and which content you ought to charge for?

Is it possible to give away too much?

"This blog series is entitled “Women in Leadership and Management” yet we have never really explored what is (or is not) included. So many people define leadership differently; there is absolutely no consensus!

Amazon lists nearly 122,000 books when you search on “leadership.” A Google search for the term yields approximately 468,000,000 “hits.” Google Scholar yields about 2,750,000 options. There are a myriad of courses and degrees focused on leadership. Clearly people like talking about/reading about/writing about/learning about leadership.

Jaana Nyström might not fit your visual image of a leader.

Jaana doesn’t wear a “power suit” or have hundreds of people reporting to her or control a multi-million dollar (euro) budget. However based on any of the following leadership quotations (which are some of my favorites), Jaana Nyström is unquestionably a leader!

Jaana began her leadership journey as one who literally “guides or directs a group.” She began her career as a tour guide! That is not to say that all tour guides are leaders; however Jaana demonstrated an insatiable appetite for learning and leading from the outset.."

Your email inbox should help you live and work better, but instead it often buries the important stuff and creates more stress than it relieves. So the Gmail team built a clean, organized, and helpful inbox to work for you.

- See what's important at a glance
Inbox bundles up clutter so important email is front and center - personal messages, photos, articles, flights and more.

- Keep everything to do in one place
Add Reminders to your Inbox so your to-do’s are where you know you’ll get back to them.

- Plan or procrastinate
Snooze email or Reminders until you are ready to deal with them: next week, when you get home, whenever you choose.

Below is a short summary of the main differentiators between U2F security keys and traditional smart card- and hardware-based authentication devices:

⇨  No need for drivers, client software and middleware – Uses native drivers and built-in support directly into the browser. No installation, no configuration – just works !

⇨  Highly scalable while protecting your privacy - Generates a new set of encryption keys for every service, that is only stored on the specific service it connects to. With this approach no secrets are shared among service providers, and even low-cost security keys can support any number of services.

⇨  Great user experience – To register and authenticate, all it takes is a simple touch of a button!

Once in a Lifetime: The Full Finnish Sauna Experience

"Not so fresh off the plane from Helsinki, the minute I landed in Kuusamo I was whisked away to experience none other than the quintessential Finnish ritual – The Finnish Sauna. 

In the Western World we would consider sauna and spa time an indulgence… but this couldn’t be further from the truth in Finland. The Finnish Sauna is a mandatory part of your existence – a staple in any Finn’s daily life. 

So here I was, fresh off the plane from Helsinki and ready to experience my first real sauna experience…"
