Do you ever find yourself trying to avoid long lines or wondering when is the best time to go grocery shopping, pick up coffee or hit the gym (hint: avoid Monday after work)? You’re in luck!

Now, you can avoid the wait and see the busiest times of the week at millions of places and businesses around the world directly from Google Search. For example, just search for "Blue Bottle Williamsburg", tap on the title and see how busy it gets throughout the day. Enjoy your extra time!

The latest update to Google Maps on Android carries a hidden Easter egg when you ask, "Are we there yet?".

New UI elements for the YouTube Android app Saw the new changes the other day and I love it! Being able to swipe through the menus and the UI for the subscriptions is very slick. Best change in a while for the app. Looking to see how the video editing experience is.
 
Redesigned YouTube mobile app: subscriptions front and center, your fans can easily subscribe to notifications of your new uploads and live broadcasts, built-in editing tools and more

The app has 3 tabs: Home (recommended videos), Subscriptions, and Account (your playlists, watch history and uploads).

Also:
> get notified of new uploads by tapping the bell icon on a channel
> watch full-screen vertical videos with a single tap
> new video editing tools: trim your footage, tint the image with filters, add music, and upload 

Available now on Android, mobile web, and soon on iOS.

"Political movements are viral, but conspiracies are bacterial. They thrive in dark recesses, fed by self-reinforcement, shielded from the disinfecting light of contrary opinion."
The long read: In December, a handful of middle-aged American immigrants attempted to topple the autocratic ruler of the Gambia. They had few weapons and an amateurish plan. What possessed them to risk everything in a mission that was doomed to fail?

Gorgeous Maps from the Cold War-era Soviet Union! Reminds me that I need to start a collection of old maps to make into prints.
 
Secret Maps
via +Joerg Fliege 

In the days of the Cold War, before smartphones with a selection of colourful, detailed, satellite-based maps were in the hands of the public, the Soviet authorities, it seems, privately held beautifully-made, highly-detailed and (usually) highly-accurate maps of locations from all over the world as well as their home territories.

Many of these maps provide additional GIS details that go far beyond any immediate military purpose and are so accurate that they contain information not on the maps of the countries concerned.  Many cities in Europe, a few in the United States (Pontiac, MI, Galveston, TX, Bristol, PA, Scranton, PA, Syracuse, NY, Towanda, and North Towanda, NY, Watertown, NY, Niagara Falls, NY), and it is speculated the whole of the home territories, were mapped at a ratio of 1:10,000.

John Davies has found scores of features on the Soviet maps that don’t seem to have immediate military relevance, things like factories, police stations, and transportation hubs. “If it’s an invasion map, you wouldn’t show the bus stations,” Davies says. “It’s a map for when you’re in charge.”

That’s probably true, but there may be even more to it than that, says Alex Kent, who’s now a senior lecturer in geography at Canterbury Christ Church University. Kent thinks the Soviets used the maps more broadly. “It’s almost like a repository of intelligence, a database where you can put everything you know about a place in the days before computers,” he says.

“They managed to turn so much information into something that’s so clear and well-presented,” Kent says. “There are layers of visual hierarchy. What is important stands out. What isn’t recedes. There’s a lot that modern cartographers could learn from the way these maps were made.”

Aesthetically, the maps are striking, if not beautiful. The cartographers who made them took tremendous pride in their work, down to the last details, says Kent Lee, the CEO of EastView Geospatial, a Minnesota company that was once Russell Guy’s main competition in the Soviet map import business and now claims to have the largest collection of Soviet military maps outside of Russia. “Cartographic culture is to Russia as wine culture is to France,” Lee says.
