To boil or not to boil.
Clearly, I chose the former. I did have a slight hesitation before dropping him in the pot. I felt a little bad. So I put him on the counter and explained that his insides taste like hopes and dreams, and it would be irresponsible NOT to eat him. I did thank him for his contribution to my birthday too.

I need a HUGE favor from everyone... especially those of you that are fellow science lovers....... .explanation down below.

Report these 3 pages for impersonation. Choose the "other business or organization" option. They need to come down asap. Thank you.


This ^^^ third one even managed to get itself verified through some bogus process. It's the most popular of the 3. PLEASE Report them all and share this post with your circles to help get them taken down

Explanation ...... 

+Elise Andrew the founder of Facebook's famous "I fucking love science" page has been trying to get her REAL G++I fucking love science page verified for over a year now. She has requested verification many times and has even reported the other pages as impersonation with no response from Google. She has even sent them her company's name registration papers as well as the copyright papers to the name and they still won't get back to her. She's extremely frustrated and that's been holding her back from fully committing to engaging more here... which sucks, because we have been trying to get her active here for over a year now.... and MANY of us would love to see her engaging more. So if you could all please report these pages I know she and the rest of us would highly appreciate it.

Thank you. 
PLEASE Report them all and share this post with your circles to help get them taken down.

Please Don't Support Mega Shared Circles
If you are participating in any mega shared circles such as #MegaBall or #MoversandShakers , you are allowing yourself to be used by opportunists who don't give a damn about the quality of your G+ experience. Please read the very well-stated post below by +John Skeats
Oh, and UNCIRCLE anyone who DOES support these circles.

Shared Circles: Think Twice Before Getting Involved

Google+ shared circles allow people to send copies of their circles to other users. Shared circles have their uses but, like anything else online, you need to be careful with them because adding random shared circles can seriously compromise your Google+ experience. 

Shared circles are not as important now as they were in the early days of Google+ before communities existed. At that time, shared circles were really the only practical way of establishing the equivalent of a community of people who could all communicate with each other. Now it is easier for people to simply join communities than to have to constantly pass around updated shared circles so everyone has the current list.

The good side of shared circles
A quality shared circle provides you an easy way to establish contact with new and interesting people on Google+. With only a few clicks, you can add them to your circles and liven up your Home stream with interesting material from the new people. Similarly, you help others find interesting people quickly by sharing your circles with people having similar interests.

The dark side of shared circles
The content of both your Home stream and What's hot is heavily influenced by the people you have circled. Adding random shared circles can therefore turn both into pure junk streams. Most of the posts you see in your Home stream are from people you have circled. Additional posts are included which were +1ed by people in your circles and (depending on your settings) from What's Hot. Google has not shared the details of how the content of What's hot is customized for each person, however there is overwhelming evidence that one of the major factors is the people in your circles. People who manage their circles carefully report that their What's hot contains very meaningful and interesting posts whereas people who have added many random people -- or many random shared circles -- generally report the opposite. The most compelling evidence of a link between circles and What's hot, however, is that people who have cleaned up their circles report an immediate improvement in What's hot

Depending on your settings, adding random shared circles might also allow the circle members to create Google+ notifications for you or to start Hangouts with you. It might also give them access to personal information you intended to be shared with only a limited audience.

How to recognize good and bad shared circles
I recommend adding shared circles only if at least one of the following is true:
-- You already know the people in the circle and know you want to see their material in your Home stream.
-- You know who built the circle and how it was built. For example, circles shared by Google of people they have identified as Top Contributors, or circles created as a group project where people are nominated to be included for reasons which would make you want to see see their posts would fit this condition.

The surest sign that a shared circle is questionable is if it offers the option to be included in future generations of the circle if you add, +1, and comment on the current generation of the circle. That allows undesirable people to join very easily -- so those circles frequently include spammers and other people who you would not otherwise consider adding to your circles. On the other hand, people who are truly the top Google+ users in terms of providing high quality content virtually never join such circles (although they might be added by the creator of a shared circle to give the impression the circle was endorsed by those people). I strongly recommend not participating in any such shared circles. 

What to do when you receive a shared circle
Unless you trust a shared circle for one of the reasons given above, you should always treat a shared circle with suspicion. I personally never add shared circles that allow people to join in the manner described above. For other shared circles, I recommend checking the profiles of the people in the circles to see if they share the kinds of posts you want to see in your Home stream. In practice, this means I never add large shared circles because checking hundreds of profiles takes too much time. 

To check the membership of a shared circle, push the button to add the circle. Doing that displays the member list so you can make a good decision before the people are actually added. You can view the profiles of people in the shared circle and remove people you do want (by clicking the "X" that will appear in the upper right hand corner of their card when you move the cursor over the card). If you want to add the people, you can enter either the name of a new or existing circle in the field at the top. Then push the button to either create the circle or add the people to an existing circle.  (Note that using an existing circle adds the people to that circle. It does not replace your current circle.)

It is a good practice to add a shared circle as as a new circle initially because it gives you an easy way to reverse the the process. You can then simply delete the circle if you change your mind. If you added the people to existing circles, however, you would have to crawl through whichever circle you added the people to and remove them individually.

Google Policy Considerations
Both Google+ profiles and pages are limited to a total of 5000 people and pages in their circles. Adding large circles can obviously lead you to reach that limit very quickly and leave you with a major cleanup job before you can add people you really want in your circles.

Rule #7 of the Google+ User Content and Conduct Policy ( says "Do not aggressively add people to your circles." Adding large shared circles frequently can lead to your account being flagged for violating that rule. If that were to happen, the number of people you could add to your circles per day could be very seriously limited.

A month on from their referendum to join Russia, Crimeans ought to be looking north to the mainland with some satisfaction. Pro-Russia demonstrators in eastern Ukraine occupy government buildings across the region, making demands for Russian protection. Kiev is mobilizing troops to oust them, raising the possibility that Russia will respond with military intervention. But for Crimeans, now safely ensconced in Russia's embrace, all is now good. Right?

#Ukraine   #Crimea   #RussianAggression  

Not exactly.
A month after voting to join Russia, Crimeans are struggling with currency woes, a logjammed legal system, and a moribund tourist industry.

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.

I can't really describe all of my Google+ activity in just a few paragraphs, but I'll try. Here is a list of the topics I post about, those in bold most frequently: Social Media, News, Science, Progressive Politics, Humor, Engineering, PS3/PC Gaming, Current Events, Tech News, TV & Movies (Breaking Bad, Doctor Who, Walking Dead, just to name a few) and more.

Went here with my wife, and had a great time! Price is acceptable, considering the location - and the food was great - no complaints whatsoever. Actually - one - the mussels were TINY! But me and my wife laughed, because to be fair, we ordered the "small" mussel appetizer. We just thought that small denoted amount, not teeny tiny mussels! But still - the food was great, and we couldn't bring ourselves to complain - we had a great night!
