very interesting - a good way to explain health insurance to the general public
Health Insurance Explained

This infographic attempts to explain how Health Insurance is supposed to work and in the process also shows just how confused, messed up and generally broken it is.

Some helpful Google+ tips and information:
Let's build an awesome-tastic Google+ community together!
would love to have some MEGA re-shares on this baby

In these few easy steps you can maximize your Google+ experience.
Here are the tips and tricks you should know and evangelize:

Send Feedback button - In the lower right hand corner you can report bugs and give us your feature suggestions!

Google+ Discuss Forum - Join the conversation about Google+ here and chat with other Google+ community members. Please don’t use the forum for feature suggestions - it’s hard for us to keep track there - use the Send Feedback button instead.

What’s New In Google+ page - The Google+ Team is frequently updating this page to let you know the latest and greatest in Google+ (spread the word new stuff comes out)! Many of these announcements are direct reflections of what you all have asked for. Keep it up!

Is someone bugging you? - Use the “Block” button on any profile, this means 1) You will no longer see this person’s content in your stream, 2) This person won’t be able to comment on your content, 3) This person will be removed from your circles, and 4) This person will still be able to see your public posts. Also use the “Mute post” feature in the Stream when someone’s post is too much for you.

Report a profile - Let’s build the community we want by reporting abuse that is in violation of our Community Standards. You can Report a profile from any Google+ profile.

the About section of my profile - I update this frequently! Here you will find some information if you (or friends and family) are new - definitely share these posts from +Ahmed Zeeshan. I’ve added every Google Community Manager on this page so you can follow them to get updates on your favorite Google products and services. Make sure to add the Google+ Community Team - +Toby Stein +Brian Rose +Katherine Gramann +Evan Steinberg. You can also find information about suspended accounts.

+mentioning Community Managers - We love being engaged with Google+ and connecting with users all over the world, but unfortunately there isn’t enough time in the day to read and respond to every +mention and share. We’ll certainly do our best to help and listen where we can, and communicate directly to you via our Google+ profiles and Hangouts often.

Feedback Fridays - Every other week we will have Feedback Friday where I’ll post some questions to you from my profile. This is your chance to share your voice directly to the product team for the bi-weekly Google+ Community Report.

Thanks Much!

Natalie, Community Manager for the Google+ project

If this is on your bucket's on mine after my JD
If you have ever considered writing a book, making money is probably at least PART of the motivation. This is a great post on ways writing a book can lead to making money. (Hint: book sales is not #1 on the list...)

How cool - everyday people are finding different ways to use use G+
Just learned about a really cool way to do Polls on Google+:

1. Ask a question.

2. Quickly add the possible answers as the first comments.

3. People hit +1 on the comment they vote for.

Here goes: iPhone or Android?

Not sure who invented this, but I learned via +Natalie Villalobos , who shared it from +Ahmed Zeeshan , although I think +Matt Cutts was the first person I saw do it. If you know the inventor, please let me know so I can credit!!).

Who uses Google+ ? Found this posted in our company social media page:

This is great. You can change your Circles list to show as you would like it. This flexibility only adds to the ease that has already been at the center of Google+.
Hey there, I'm Brett, and I'm an engineer here on the Google+ Circles team. We’ve
been hearing that you want a way to reorder your circles -- so when
you add people, view your stream, or share, that list of circles is in
the order that works for you. We thought it was a great idea, and today, we’re launching this on Google+.

Let me show you how it works. Go over to the Circles tab and down to your circles. Now you can move your circles wherever you want, just by clicking and dragging with the mouse. Plus, that order will now show up everywhere across Google+, even in the dropdown menu when you add people to circles.

I hope you like it. And as always, please keep letting us know what we
can do to make Google+ better for you.

Brett van Zuiden

Google+ seems to be a lot more friendly in the "work" environment. It especially (at least for now) runs smoother and faster over work network without problems or straight up "blocks" by IT
