How do you use it for a client account - or do you?

I don't want to give the permissions required...
Same with Facebook and the compulsory chat app.

Skipped those too.

Are you using a separate mobile phone, or?

Google’s approach for rolling out the latest version of Android, Lollipop, is a little different.

There are the usual things we see every year — a new Nexus phone and a new Nexus tablet — but instead of a big event, the company is posting details in blog posts and on the main Android site. So if you’re tracking the rollout closely, you probably have a sense of what’s new and what’s cool in the OS.

If you’re not, though, getting a sense of what Lollipop is actually like and what it actually does isn’t easy...

I'm a Prime member.

I did some shopping on Amazon.com: (US) This was about the only item they'd ship to Finland, the mic... As I found out after gathering almost 1000 USD on my shopping cart. (Christmas, hey!)

The same item in Amazon.UK was almost double the price.
Now I wonder why? No free shipping either, even with over 600 GBP shopping? (Besides, after all the hype for free shipping it was no such thing +Amazon.com . Disappointed!)

Hmm. Not a happy shopper.  There must be a "European location racism" clause somewhere in the EU law? If not, it should be.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004QJOZS4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

- Will not reveal the over 600 GBP list in Amazon.UK because Christmas.

Former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari, winner of the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize, has managed a impossible task: He has helped achieve a truce between the Angry Birds and the Bad Piggies, after almost five years of ongoing conflict.

“It is my eternal optimism that all conflicts can be solved,” says Ahtisaari. “What are we trying to achieve? Human rights, decent healthcare, truth, reconciliation and a fair, eggaliterian society.”

You can click on them (when blue) and they will take you straight to the search, showing posts with the hashtag in question. People who search for a certain topic can do so with or without the # and a keyword: You get slightly different results with either method, I've noticed.

Using hashes is a good way to get your posts noticed by the public in search, not just in photo themes but on any topic, works also in Communities. 

Of course that means posting in Public or public communities, otherwise only those with whom the post was shared can see the results (members in your circles or private communities).

So you can use your own unique hashtag (like my #Jaanatip or the more public #Plushelp ) and find them later. You may also share posts only to yourself, your own private community or an empty circle and easily find the posts in the Google+ search.

"With the GOP takeover of the Senate, all the leadership positions will be filled by Republicans after the first of the year.

Two of the most frightening changes will be on the Environment and Public Works Committee and the Subcommittee on Science and Space which will likely be chaired by James Inhofe (R-OK) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) respectively, two of the most adamant climate and science deniers in congress.

Cruz told CNN’s Dana Dash in February that facts contradict what climate scientists have told us about climate change and claimed that the “so-called scientific theory” is designed in such a way as to fit every scenario that may arise.

“The last 15 years, there has been no recorded warming. Contrary to all the theories that – that they are expounding, there should have been warming over the last 15 years. It hasn’t happened,” he told her dusting off the thoroughly debunked myth so often cited by climate deniers.

“Climate change, as they have defined it,” Cruz said, “can never be disproved, because whether it gets hotter or whether it gets colder, whatever happens, they’ll say, well, it’s changing, so it proves our theory.”

Of course, that is false.
While there are ups and downs in the short-term, the trend over the last century has been steadily upward.
Cruz does have a solution:, he would remove all environmental regulations and allow drilling anywhere at any time for oil, fracking for gas and unlimited burning of coal.

Inhofe has cited the Bible as evidence that we need not worry about climate change which he has referred to on many occasions as “a hoax.”

“Genesis 8:22: that I use in there is that ‘as long as the earth remains there will be seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night.’ My point is, God’s still up there. The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous.”


- These are the men we the Americans are going to have in charge of making policy decisions on science for at least the next two years...  
(Any decision made in these huge countries will have Global effects, so woe us small countries who recycle, drive small cars or use bicycles, think environment and do our bit.  It's all useless with the stupid giants?)
