Ever set a goal, then fail to follow through? You're not alone. If you find it hard to stay focused on the future, you have temporal myopia. Not to worry – here's the fix.

#Alphabet = the public company known as GOOG and that subsidiaries of Google, Nest, Google X, Fiber, Ventures, Capital and Calico.

This provides more transparency to financial reporting to investors so that they can readily see the profit & loss ration of their core revenues business as well as understand the costs of the other strategic efforts.

Nearly everything that consumers know of Google will still be kept under the brand and company of Google.  e.g.: YouTube, Android, Chrome, Adsense, Adwords, etc.  Crazy new ideas will likely be shuffled into Google X.

To the Googlers (Google employees), they will now be a little more focused to their direct company.  The company has a culture of cultivating lean startup models and they hope to fortify that with this restructuring.  I suspect we may see some future divisions in the "Google" group as the company gets comfortable with this model.

Lastly, this move provides a conduit for founders +Larry Page  and +Sergey Brin to promote fresh leadership and take a higher level road (aka a billionaires convenience).  Interesting to note that Alphabet is has just 5 workers and operates the website http://abc.xyz (curious if that was Larry or Sergey that made it -- or perhaps they outsourced it to #Hooli

Excellent self-help discussion from the most unlikely character.

Only believe, and listen to, positive predictions.
Do not pity anyone; especially yourself.

Love these search examples provided by the Oregon Tech Libraries...  I guess they are very relevant topics for them to research!

(marijuana OR marihuana OR hemp OR cannabis OR pot)  AND

Anyone know what the Google Catamaran is for? Looks like a research vessel. .. or at least a really great excuse for a Newport Beach business expense.

Google's new CEO announced today +Sundar Pichai and he's already showing the search knowledge graph via Wikipedia.  Think he pulled some strings to make that update happen so quickly?

A fresh view on Business View 360.
 
Among Google’s imagery products, we strive to balance what makes sense for you, the pro or enthusiast photographer, with the needs of consumers. Achieving this balance can be a challenge, especially when publishing tools are managed under separate products. So we wanted to share our plans to help streamline our pro photographer tools with the established Street View brand. Here’s a summary of what’s to come in mid-August:

New Street View app
For the first time, in one new app, your profile and photo spheres will be presented alongside those from Google and other contributors, creating a unified Street View gallery designed to bring more visibility to you and your work. On iOS, the Street View app will replace Photo Sphere Camera with both iOS and Android versions of the new app supporting our photo sphere camera mode. Most notably though, the apps are capable of linking to spherical cameras, including two at launch: the NCTech iris360 and the Giroptic 360cam. The iris360 delivers 8K, HDR images to the app, ready to be published in 120 seconds, while the 360cam focuses on accessibility with fast shots and a take–it–anywhere design.

Street View | Trusted
In addition to the upcoming app, we're also preparing a set of changes to our sister platform, Google Maps Business View. In mid–August, this certified photographer program will be rebranded as “Street View | Trusted.” It will remain focused on supporting pro photographers who publish photo spheres to Google Maps, but at that time — and in direct response to your feedback — the program will shed many of its stringent requirements in favor of far more accommodating policies. In short, enrollment will be easier, publishing requirements will be simpler, and we’ll improve publishing and editing reliability. High quality imagery will remain a key requirement and distinction for those in the program.

Google Maps
Your Views profile will have a new look and feel, and be transferred over to Google Maps when Views goes offline in mid–August. At that time, we’ll enable photo sphere uploads directly from the Google Maps website. And later in the year, Google Maps will re-introduce the lost support for creating connections between photo spheres (“constellations”) with a new, more automated solution.

All of your existing, Maps-approved photos, photo spheres and constellations will continue to be visible — and deletable — through the Google Maps website. All images from your Views profile, including those that have not been approved for Google Maps, will continue to be hosted on Google+. And when publishing via Google+, geotagged images with the appropriate permissions will also continue to appear in Google Maps and Google Earth.

We hope that this unified product landscape will provide even more benefits for the photography community, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we prepare to take the next step in spherical photography.

At our party, we were captivated with a strolling magician, Lou Serrano, a Magic Castle member. From the moment he arrived, Lou was on point and in character, creating amazing performances for us in small groups. He engaged with the audience really well, not appearing over rehearsed or routine. The illusions truly made you question your eyes as he tore apart and re-assembled cards even in your own hands. Even more incredible is that he could repeat the act for the next group almost right away. Truly a well polished magician. All of us left quite delighted. I can only imagine how well his on-stage performances must be. Highly recommended and will encourage him for future events. #Testimonial

Michael is a genuinely caring person. In a random act of kindness - it was late night after hours, my wife was dying of thirst and he gave us a free bottle of Fiji water.
