Good music is medicine.

Recent studies have found that listening to music before, during and after an operation can help reduce pain and anxiety.

Doctor's orders: take Pink Floyd's song "Comfortably Numb" by ear every four hours for pain or as needed.

Gasoline-powered cars are toast.
We are watching the demise of the gasoline-powered automobile.

Here's a view of some Tesla passengers experiencing "insane" mode for the first time: http://youtu.be/LpaLgF1uLB8

A memorable experience, I'm sure. 😃

A memo to all Americans from The White House regarding the planet.

1. Climate change is a fact, not an opinion.
2. There's something we can do about it, and we must.

What's really warming the world?

Spoiler: it's the result of human actions around the globe.
#inconvenienttruth
 
If you ever wondered whether global warming could be caused by natural factors other than man-made greenhouse gases, read this beautifully simple, but highly quantitative, article from Bloomberg.

Google+ is really incredible for photos and they keep improving it with new features. 😃
 
Stories is a proud part of the "magic" in the new Google Photos app. We've also made some improvements, including our most requested feature--the ability to manually create stories from an arbitrary set of photos!

If you're new to stories, I hope you'll find they're a great way to effortlessly capture, relive, and share the important moments in your life. And if you're a long-time G+ stories user, remember that once you start using Google Photos, new stories will be delivered via your photos assistant--just tap "Save" to add them to your library.

Scientists Crack A 50-Year-Old Mystery About The Measles Vaccine

The public health benefits of measles vaccine is much stronger than originally expected.

"In some developing countries, where infectious diseases are very high, the reduction in mortality has been up to 80 percent," says Michael Mina, a postdoc in biology at Princeton University and a medical student at Emory University.

"We found measles predisposes children to all other infectious diseases for up to a few years," Mina says.

It turns out that the statement, "that which does not kill me only makes me stronger" does not apply to measles. #vaccinate #measles

When the U.S. introduced the measles vaccine, childhood deaths from all infections plummeted. Scientists think they might know why: Benefits of the measles vaccine go way beyond the measles.

Beware of buying lumber from Menards. You have been warned! The front end of my vehicle was destroyed as a result of errors from Menards and myself. Menards denied any responsibility, and said that the "incident" was 100% my fault and further, they are not going to make any changes to prevent the following accident from occurring again: First understand: if you buy lumber from Menards you MUST get a material ticket inside the store (located on the opposite side of the only entrance- and it's a BIG STORE with a long walk - where you literally have to pass through a turnstile - like cattle to the slaughter). Then you must go through the check out, back to your vehicle and drive through a poorly designed curving maze around to the back of the building and through a prison-like guard station (complete with guard and powered gate barriers) into the lumber yard. Service: None. I searched the lumber yard for my material, hand loaded and proceeded to present my receipt to exit through the guard station. Surprise: My ticket did not match the materials I ordered and paid for. The guard says, "You have carefully check your ticket at the materials desk before you go through the register. They get the orders wrong all the time." Me: "What do I do now?" Guard (while motioning to a car to back up as it is pinning me in between it and the gate barrier): "Back up and go back into the side doors, get a new material ticket, go to customer service, return the wrong item and pay for the correct one." Then he abandons me for incoming cars. I look around, all apparently clear, and slowly back up and begin turning to avoid the car behind me, when a horrible crunch sound occurs. I get out to see a metal post (it's purpose is to prevent vehicles from driving into the guard shack) buried in concrete - just out of my view from my position in the vehicle - has tore into my left front panel and bumper of my vehicle. Menards has placed a metal post (i.e. obstacle) below the view of most drivers near a very narrow exit - an invisible hazard - in a location where backing up and turning will likely result in an accident. This is easily preventable by either correcting the ticket on the spot, replacing the short metal pipe with a taller that is visible from all vehicles and one that is closer to the guard shack away from a vehicles turn path, or simply not allowing drivers to back up in the gate. Have them drive through and correct the ticket inside the store. Instead of unnecessarily forcing them to take a risk backing up in a hazardous environment with hidden obstacles. Further, because, "they get the orders wrong all the time." Menards should verify with the customer that they have gotten the order correct before sending them off. Guard: "Dang! Sorry about that! I guess that's what insurance is for!" Beware of buying lumber for Menards! You have been warned. Save big money.... Don't shop at Menards.
