Love this watch. Too bad its way too big for me, haha.
Rolex 116610 LV “Incredible Hulk” Submariner: Combines the 2008 “Super Case”/”Maxi Dial” 116610 Sub with a green bezel and a green dial to great effect.

It's like any fashion accessory, Steve. Some people like to wear them, while others don't. I was on the London tube a few years ago, in the 1990's, and I noticed a young office worker travelling in an unusual costume - puffy Elizabethan knickers. She seemed a little self conscious about it, so I didn't take a (film camera!) picture. It was a pretty remarkable sight, like these two people:

If that was a fashion fad, it faded very quickly, and I never saw anyone dressed that way again. But it's all just folds of cloth - even if it looks novel. Each to their own, eh?

Great video for #ScienceSunday . This is from 1949, but still a great educational tool today! Guess what - they are still building watches much the same way today.

How a Watch Works
A simple demonstration of the basic design and operation of a watch, including stop-motion animation showing a watch being assembled from many parts.

This is a film from the +Hamilton Watch company in 1949.

Very cool watch. One of a kind piece.

Omega Seamaster with a special "doctor's dial." This watch was actually made for a very famous doctor in Germany. He used it as a pulsometer to take the pulse of his patients.

+David W. Scott Heh, personal preference I guess. I like the permanence of a quality watch myself. As we mentioned above, cell phones last <2 years, watches can last lifetimes (As mentioned above)

Electronic Cigarettes Vapor Has NO Toxic Effect
Not a huge fan of tobacco-funded studies, this one being funded by British American Tobacco. It looks rather legitimate with the testing methods used though. BAT teamed up with +MatTek Corporation, maker of human cell models used in “in vitro” laboratory experiments. Using a smoking robot, they exposed lung cell replicas to tobacco smoke, two brands of e-cig vapor, and plain air.

Next I'd like to see an increase in sample sizes of the e-juice. Over 20, with some from US, China, etc to see if there are differences in the e-juice and possible harm depending on region. If one of them comes up dangerous - continue and study further samples from the coutnry.

Then again, BAT is only funding these to be able to sell their own, not to necessarily help, which is why I always ask you support small businesses like (biased, as it's my own) Inner Vapor rather than Big Tobacco, which have a history of killing people and getting away with it. We'd prefer they not control this industry the way they've controlled analog cigarettes (burning tobacco).

The main issue we have had with the studies claiming damage are improperly using the vaporizers and e-juice. Sure, take 200 dry hits of cotton, you'll be doing some damage to your lungs - I don't need a study to know that. But know your vape, and vape safe - and you won't have any issues. And here we have a little bit more evidence, though I wish the source was better.

If you don't care about a Big Tobacco funded study, check out this one from Public Health England (PHE) in the United Kingdom. Expert and independent source.
In a recent study, scientists have found electronic cigarette vapor has NO toxic effect on the cells found in human lungs. Fresh research, funded by British American Tobacco (BAT), suggested inhaling nicotine vapor could be as safe as breathing air. To perform these experiments, the tobacco giant teamed up with the MatTek Corporation, maker of human cell models used …

Smoking doesn't just magically go away. It doesn't work like that. Big Tobacco has been throwing money at the cig-a-likes like Blue, Vuse, etc - that allow them to control the ingredients and refills. Whereas most open vaping is about small business and DIY.

Maybe we shouldn't be cheering those big hits.
What happens to a football players brain during a concussion? No matter who you root for during this Sunday’s #Superbowl50 , the Denver #Broncos  or the Carolina #Panthers , you can be sure the competition will be so fierce that there will be an estimated 130-plus plays, hundreds of hits, tackles, spears, and lay outs. For a young and healthy athlete, that can lead to serious brain trauma.

I have loved almost every railroad-inspired watch I've ever come across. Love the style.
Inspired by a timepiece from the 1960s, The Longines RailRoad mirrors the sober and characteristic aesthetic of this model, as well as its technical characteristics.

The Panthère au Clair de Lune de Cartier
Set with diamonds with black lacquered spots, the panther is made of white gold, while the branches of the tree are rose gold. Green jasper is used to form the tiny leaves. The 42.75 mm case is in rose gold, as is the bracelet. In total the watch is set with over 20 carats of diamonds. The Panthère au Clair de Lune de Cartier was a limited edition of an undetermined size with a price of 535,000 Singapore dollars, or about US$428,000.

The Complete Guide to Rich Snippets and Structured Data for SEO

Getting your website into the Google Knowledge Graph is not a wishful thinking anymore. It’s a necessity.

As we are shifting away from the “keywords” based search, we are entering the world of the semantic entities search. Having good content on your website is a good start. But telling search engines what entities are there on the page in your copy is what people call nowadays “SEO on steroids”.

Probably the quickest and the most reliable way of getting your pages into the Google Knowledge Graph is showing rich snippets for your search results. This is not just mine but also Google’s opinion as you can see from this video here:

What are rich snippets? Let’s use the Google’s definition:

"Snippets – the few lines of text that appear under every search result – are designed to give users a sense for what’s on the page and why it’s relevant to their query".

Notice the word “relevant”. Relevant is the foundation on which the semantic search is built. Traditional search algorithms match your search query with “keywords” extracted from web pages and organise those results in order of relevance. The semantic search on the other side tries to understand your query in more depth showing you more meaningful and relevant results.

(For more information about semantic search visit The Google Semantic Search Community - -  where Mr +David Amerland and +Teodora Petkova will get you up to speed in no time.)

Looking from a different point of view it is a way for webmasters to “advertise” their pages/products in a better way, thus giving us more information before we decide to click through to a website.

Are we able to see them yet? Hell yeah. For the past 2-3 years or so. Just go to Google and search for “music festivals in London”:

Now have a look at the fourth result. See, even if I didn’t tell you would have looked at the fourth result anyway. Although the first result is more relevant to your query – hence the first position in Google – your eyes are automatically drawn to the more organised, in a way more attractive fourth position.

Another example will be looking for a tomato soup – – as your eyes are automatically drawn to the picture. Especially if you are hungry.

Not even intentionally we’ve already tapped in the main benefits of the rich snippets.

1. More visual, eye-catching results in the SERPS (Search engine results page)

2. More visual and more relevant information will probably increase the CTR – click through rate. Having  a peek before visiting a page will definitely decrease the bounce rate of a particular page. Google says bounce rate is not considered when ranking a page, but I am not so sure. Since introducing Panda 4.0. we see increase ranking for pages based on the so-called “user signals”. One of those signals is the “SERP Return Rate” (the proportion of searchers going back to the search engine results page after having clicked on a link – which suggests they did not find what they were searching for). Or in other words, no relevance. Do you see the benefit of allowing the searcher to know what to expect on your page?

3. Rich snippets will not only increase your CTR, but it will also bring more “qualified” traffic too. The people visiting your pages (especially e-commerce) are making an educated decision to click through to your website knowing your product, pricing and availability in advance. They wouldn’t have clicked on your link if they didn’t want to make a purchase. Going even more backwards they wouldn’t have been even online looking for your product-specific term.
Tip: Feels like I have to give you an advice here: know your customers.

Rich Snippets: How to Implement?

I will try to be as less geeky as possible and I also promise to show you the easiest method.

Are you from Minnesota District 8? I realize that the Venn Diagram of people that follow me and see these posts won't intersect heavily with the people from that area, but if I can even reach one more voter, it's a good thing!. So... support Shawn Olsen for Minnesota State Senate in District 8!

He is looking out for you, he just needs you to look out for him in the upcoming election. He has been actively fighting the good fight online for the last 8 years, and is ready to take what he has learned to the streets. 
I am running for the Minnesota State Senate
I've been a progressive activist on the internet for over 8 years, and am taking this fight for real change and reform public. In the words of Paul Wellstone: "If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them."  

My district is challenging and has an entrenched conservative Republican incumbent who many think cannot be beat, which is precisely what I want them to think. That gives me the perfect maneuvering room to mount an aggressive grassroots campaign that flies under the radar to reach out directly to the folks that live here. 

No pressure of course, but I'd appreciate it if you checked out my page and gave me some social media love on Twitter and Facebook too:

And remember that all progress is the result of progressively oriented people standing up to MAKE it happen. If there are no progressives running for every level of political office where you live, recruit someone to run, or run for office yourself. We need good people to step up to run for everything from US House to local school boards and everything in between. 
Your Friend Shawn Olson is running for the Minnesota Senate in District 8. Now is our time to restore the good governance necessary to raise wages, create jobs, curb crippling levels of wealth inequality, expand education, and protect our Seniors.

Well, Hello there fellow Googs!

My name is Andrij "Andrew" Harasewych <- LinkedIn Profile!
Please note - though I describe myself as a marketer, this is still my personal profile, and prefer to treat it as such. From time to time I may share something from my business or from a friend or colleague - but for the most part, this is pretty much a stream of consciousness. This is what's going on in my life. What I'm working on, watching, listening, commenting on, etc etc. Follow at your own risk! :) 

Anyway - back to the profile!

I currently live in Philadelphia, PA (near the Art Museum) and am married to the love of my life, Joanna Guastavino Harasewych whom I met ten years ago as a freshman at Drexel (before transferring to Villanova).

Although I ended up graduating from Villanova University with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering, a side passion of mine for the past decade has been business and marketing. After three years of working full time as a mechanical engineer, and part time as a freelancer, success in my freelance work motivated me to alter my path and focus fully on developing my business, Socialize Me, which, as it turns out, means focusing on other people's businesses. 

Available to speak at your business or conference on Google+ and Social Media for business. In addition to helping clients reach their goals online, I also do consulting and professional speaking about Google+ at your business, at your online conferences, and even at offline conferences and retreats! Contact me through this profile or through my website.
