The number of internet users in the world

Interesting statistics!

Around 40% of the world population has an internet connection today (view all on a page ). In 1995, it was less than 1%.

The number of internet users has increased tenfold from 1999 to 2013.
The first billion was reached in 2005. The second billion in 2010. The third billion will be reached by the end of 2014.

    Simpler to get everyone on video meetings

    Now Hangouts video meetings support any Google Apps customer account, including those without a Google+ profile.

    Some features—using apps in video calls, sharing photos, and using circles to control who can reach you and how—require a Google+ profile.  (https://support.google.com/a/answer/3094760 )

    Any Google Apps customer can start or join a high-definition video meeting that connects 15 participants—from a computer or Chromebox for meetings device and coming soon to mobile phone and tablet.

    To avoid (or least minimize) possible seasickness effects while on a cruise in the Galapagos Islands, the ideal location to be is ... (no, it's not the bar!)

    (1) as low down towards waterline as possible (vertical axis);
    (2) as central from front-to-rear of vessel (forward/aft axis);
    (3) as central from side-to-side of vessel (port/starboard axis);

    20 Foods that Detox Your Body & Mind

    Keep in mind that not one single detox food on this list is a magical one that you can focus all of your attention on to fully cleanse the body.

    Consider increasing your intake on as many as you can reasonably accommodate. Some might be hard to incorporate, either because you can’t find them locally or you can’t picture yourself adding them to your diet.

    Just do the best you can to come up with a detox plan that works for you and that you feel good about...

    How to add text to an image already in a Google+ album

    Open up a new post, click on the Photo icon. Then choose "Your Google+ Photos", choose any of your images, click Add and then you get a new post with the image added, and also the text editor possibility.

    Changing the text after saving is not possible, unfortunately.  But you can redo another share of the same image.

    If you just wish to create several meme's, share those image posts with yourself only and before sharing click on the add to an album, perhaps later downloading them to your computer.

    See the photos for detailed instructions:

    #Photos     #Meme     #Texteditor     #Jaanatip  

    PS:  If you wish the album like this one to display a name instead of the date like here, create a new album or add the photos to an existing album.
    Which I forgot to do, again...  :-)
    Now I can change the name of the album created when I click it open and edit the name on top, but the name change does not happen in this already shared album.

    PPS:

    A pro tip for post sharing

    If you wish to share some advice, a recipe or how-to instructions:

    Preferably create an album of the photos / drawings / images and share that.  You can open a new post and add several images at once, but add at least two.

    Why?
    Because you can go back any time and edit the album contents, change the text added to the photos, add extra photos, delete a bad picture, reorganize the album etc.

    Why is this good?

    Because every one of the reshares is updated at the same time!

    Neste Oil Rally Finland 31.7. - 3.8.2014

    Official list released:
    Neste Oil Rally Finland gets quality entry!

    Entries for Neste Oil Rally Finland closed on Monday and the official list of participants, approved by FIA, was made public on Friday, July 4th, with 81 crews on it. All top names from the headline WRC class are included, as well as some interesting challengers.

    16 cars are entered in the WRC category, with home drivers featuring in three works entries. Jari-Matti Latvala, currently second in the points standings, represents Volkswagen, M-Sport´s Mikko Hirvonen lies fifth, while Juho Hänninen (12th) will continue his limited programme in a Hyundai. A notable local name outside the works entries is Jarkko Nikara, who is down to drive a private Ford Fiesta RS WRC. 28-year-old Nikara has earlier shown flashes of promise in a Prodrive run MINI and a good performance might still help him to make the break into WRC as a regular top-liner.

    Volkswagen have again ruled in the series and in addition to Latvala their other two cars will be driven by Sébastien Ogier (FRA) and Andreas Mikkelsen (NOR), the latter run by Volkswagen Motorsport II, as usual. Mads Ostberg (NOR) and Kris Meeke (GBR) will be hoping to score for Citroën Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team. M-Sport´s Ford ranks are completed by the young Elfyn Evans (GBR) and Robert Kubica (POL). Striving to continue Hyundai´s recent progress will be Thierry Neuville (BEL), who last year finished second in Finland, and Hayden Paddon (NZL). Possibly able to split the works drivers is the experienced Henning Solberg (NOR), who brings another Ford Fiesta RS WRC.

    Had bbq with my brother

    Today we had really good barbeque with my brother, despite the sweltering heat. While we had really lots to eat, one certain food stood out. While my brother was acquiring the ingredients for the day he heard a suggestion from local cheese counter's clerk. He got advice to wrap bread cheese into bacon and it sounded pretty good...

    The result was really delicious! The bread cheese turned into something truly wonderful and bacon just boosted the flavors. I'm definitely going to do these again really soon!

    How to effectively complain when Google removes your favorite feature

     Google Search designer +Jon Wiley gave advice during his recent Reddit AMA to someone unhappy because of a particular feature removed from Search:  

     If you do post to the product forum, what's really helpful is understanding the problem you are looking to solve – i.e., you have a question, you're looking for an answer, and you aren't finding the best results. If you provide some example questions (we call them queries), that can help us understand how Google Search isn't working for you. Then hopefully we can make Search better overall.

    I think that's good advice in general for providing feedback to Google about removed (or new) features: 

    - don't just say you hate the change! 
    - explain why you liked the old feature and what problems it solved
    - explain why the current options don't solve that problem
    - be as detailed as you can

    Clear constructive criticism is more likely to convince Google to re-implement old features  or introduce new features that solve the same problem than angry rants.

    How to share a Google+ community on Facebook

    Just copy the link of a Public community and paste it to the Facebook status. :-)

    And vice versa: I shared the FB post here on Google+ from the timestamp link.

    Anything Public can be shared by grabbing the URL to a post or a photo and pasting it to the post.

    Out in space two alien forms are speaking with each other.

    The first spaceman says, "The dominant life forms on the Earth planet have developed satellite-based weapons."
    The second alien, who looks exactly like the first, asks, "Are they an emerging intelligence?"
    The first spaceman says, "I don't think so...They have them aimed at themselves."

    Active Finland: Traveller's Guide

    Finland is often viewed as a winter destination, a land of huskies and reindeer where the Northern Lights flicker endlessly in the snowy darkness. Skiers flock to the resorts of Levi, Pyha, Ruka and Yllas; and those wide-eyed with wonder can meet Father Christmas himself.

    But these images belong to a single season and latitude.
    Freed from winter's grip and bathed in light, Finns celebrate their short summers with gusto the length and breadth of the land. Round about now, inland temperatures often reach 30C. Everyone takes off to a lakeside cabin to swim, fish, walk in the woods, forage for wild food, or steam in the sauna...

    A Bug in Google+ Relevance:
    If you're feeling your Google+ circles sorted by Relevance are not what you expect it to be, you feel right... Google+ has made a mistake in implementing it. Let me explain it a little more.

    If you go to "People" then "My Circles" in Google+ (plus.google.com/circles), you can see that the default sort order is by Relevance. Well, it is; but with a naive mistake in sorting. It sorts by "relevance score" which is a number between 0-1000. However, the sort is done in a lexical and not numerical order.

    For example, the first few in my Google+ most relevant list are people with relevance of 9. Then someone with relevance of 808. and so on.

    Let's assume we have a series of relevance scores like this "1, 2, 9, 10, 11, 13, 12, 808". Google+ sorts these numbers with lexical sort order as "1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 2, 808, 9" instead of a numerical order which is  "1,2,9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 808". You see the difference? :)

    So, how to browse your correct "most relevant" list?
    Install +Circloscope  from circlsocope.com/install if you have not installed it yet. It's free. You can find your correct most relevant list in "Dashboard > Relevance".

    h/t: +Social Node for the heads up.

    Google Drive Help and support

    Google Drive lets you store and access your files anywhere -- on the web, on your hard drive, or on the go. Here’s how it works:

    - Go to Google Drive on the web at buff.ly/1kPgD9r
    - Install Google Drive on your computer or mobile device.
    - Throw your files in Google Drive. It’s right there on your device.

    Now your files go everywhere you do. Change a file on the web, on your computer, or on your mobile device and it updates on every device where you’ve installed Google Drive.
    Share, collaborate, or work alone: your files, your choice.

    Store the first 15 GB of your stuff for free across Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos.

    When your Google Drive grows, get another 100 GB of space (or more!) starting at $1.99 per month.

    Access everything in your Google Drive from all your devices.

    Your files are always waiting for you at buff.ly/1kPgD9r, but you can also get them straight from your computer, smartphone, and tablet. Install Google Drive on multiple devices and Google Drive makes sure they’re all the same. You can even get to your files after you go offline.

    Keep files synced. Just connect to the web – it's pretty much automatic.

    Any time your device has Internet access, it checks in with Google Drive. That ensures your files and folders are always up to date. Change something on one device and it changes everywhere.

    Stop emailing attachments. Start sharing

    Google Drive lets you choose exactly who – friends, family, colleagues – gets your files. You don’t need email attachments anymore. Just share your file, folder, or Google Doc from any device. Or make it Public.

    Keep collaborating!

    Do you collaborate with others in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides? Google Drive lets you continue to create, access, and collaborate in a version-free world.

    The 3 Hottest Questions This Week From The Google+ Help Community
    Page Managers, Duplicate account, Hangouts Help!

    Hey everyone! Time for the latest Google+ Help Weekly Round-Up where the top trending questions of the week are answered!

    1) +David Inglis asked about giving editing and posting rights to other people for his Google+ page

    Top Contributor +Kaleh Kohler promptly responded with a link that explains how to add or remove managers. 

    See the full discussion here: http://goo.gl/dXz57L

    2) +Steven Lord asked about deleting an account that he didn't remember creating.  

    +John Elstone and +Kamal Tailor , two of the most active Top Contributors in the Google+ Help community,  combined their knowledge to offer excellent suggestions and solved the mystery of the duplicate account
    I must also give credit to Steven Lord for providing links to the accounts involved.  This is extremely useful information for people trying to help. Other important information relates to how you are accessing Google+. Browser or App? Android, iOS, Windows? Phone, tablet, chromebook, desktop?

    See the full discussion here: http://goo.gl/C0ylgp

    3) +Jenine Abarbanel asked about an issue with Hangouts sound: 

    +Luiz Fernando provided a direct link to the Hangouts Forum
    This post did not have a lot of activity but I want to highlight it. Even though most people see Hangouts as part of Google+, Hangouts has it’s own special help forum. 

    See the full discussion here: http://goo.gl/8NtF40

    It is important to note that the Google+Help community deals with Google+ related questions. There are other communities, forums and help pages that provide information about other Google products. You can find a complete list at http://goo.gl/x2ZKS

    Egypt is great with kids: Lots of activities!

    Me and my son have been several times to the shores of the Red Sea, both in Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh, once in El Gouna.

    Most of the time we just spent in the ocean...  :-)  
    Wake up at 6 o'clock, breakfast, dive boat and 2-3 dives & lunch, pool, dinner, short walk, bed.

    Good food, excellent diving and snorkeling, nice pools and resorts.
    Don't book the cheapest rooms in the hotel, though...

    Hurghada:
    The Euro Divers diveshop is in Grand Hotel, sister to the Grand Resort and right in front of it, so it was a short walk.  To Colona we  took their inclusive transport.

    The true story behind this shark photo

    When this photograph was first published in Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife and later in Paris Match and the Daily Mail (London) it resulted in a flurry of e-mails, phone calls and letters from around the world asking if the image was a fake. The image became the most talked about of shark photograph ever.

    The photograph is real, no photoshop, no digital manipulation, no nothing, in fact it was shot on slide film Fuji Provia 100 using a Nikon F5 Camera and 17-35 mm lens. For those conspiracy fans who still doubt its authenticity please read how I took the photograph...

    RESHARE:
    The true story behind this shark photo

    When this photograph was first published in Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife and later in Paris Match and the Daily Mail (London) it resulted in a flurry of e-mails, phone calls and letters from around the world asking if the image was a fake. The image became the most talked about of shark photograph ever.

    The photograph is real, no photoshop, no digital manipulation, no nothing, in fact it was shot on slide film Fuji Provia 100 using a Nikon F5 Camera and 17-35 mm lens. For those conspiracy fans who still doubt its authenticity please read how I took the photograph...

    Chakana (or Inca Cross) apparently is much more than just a cross. It's not only an astrological tool, but a geometric tool .... including the incorporation of π 
    (Pi number).

    The cross has 12 points and legend has it that these points represent the following:

    (1) Life points: Life, Work, Love; 
    (2) Tiers or worlds: The Underworld, The Current/Middle World, The Upper World; 
    (3) Revered animals: The Condor (sky/air/upper world/celestial beings), The Puma (power/land/human life/middle world), The Snake (lower world/death); 
    (4) Affirmations; Don't Lie, Don't Steal, Don't be Lazy.

    The 3 Primary Principals of life:
    (1) Love (Munay): ...The love of self, love of humanity and the love of the gods
    (2) Knowledge (Yachay): in the forms of intellect, experience, and consciousness.
    (3) Work (Llankay)

    The four flat sides represent the elements Water, Air, Earth and Fire. In addition, points of the compass (N,E,S,W).

    The twelve points are also a calendar .. the 12 months, including the cycle of the moons.

    In a nutshell, a comprehensive almanac.

    New setting page: enable or disable access to less secure apps

    Many mail apps use insecure sign-in standards:

    * the Mail app for iOS 6 or below
    * the Mail app from Windows Phone 8.0 or earlier
    * some built-in Android mail apps not developed by Google
    * desktop mail clients like Microsoft Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird. 

    If the access to less secure apps is disabled, you'll see a "Password incorrect" error when signing in and you can't set up a Google account on your device. "Google may block sign in attempts from some apps or devices that do not use modern security standards. Since these apps and devices are easier to break into, blocking them helps keep your account safer."

    Drawing tab for Mac?

    My dear Circleverse, I'm sure there are experts on this area amongst you!
    My son (17 years) is interested in getting something like this: Can you give advice, please?
    He's never used such a thing before, that's why I'd like to stay in the cheaper versions...

    One can get an even cheaper one from Amazon but looks like it's an older version of the Wacom-Intuos-Small-Tablet-CTL480 without the S.

    Any help?

    Changes in the Home Stream post drop-down

    "Remove from Circles" is new?
    "Report Spam or abuse" used to be "report post"?

    Have you seen this already?

    The "Mute" has been missing for many users and perhaps here's the reason, Google has been twitching things behind the scenes.  Often when glitches occur there's activity in the wings, I have noticed.
