Great look into Voronoi diagrams and how they can inform complex mouse activity on the page.

There go my picnic plans for the weekend. 
While 61 percent of 300 people asked by pest-control company Orkin would drop their forks at the sight of a cockroach, it's the lowly fly that presents more of a health hazard.

Hey, my daughter would love for you to name a baby girl Lele. She's a cat lover who loves the color pink.

Keep up the great work. Thank you!

Everytime this LIFEGOESON song comes on I think Tom Petty made a comeback.

Could be squirrels. My cats bring home bloody chunks of animal from time to time, otherwise some kind of netting might help.

This is actually a really cool feature. We had an awesome time with some friends in the suburbs and later at Great Wolf Lodge.

I do believe "Communities" link is missing from the mobile responsive version of my G+ account. Not sure if this is an oversight or meant to happen, but thought I'd post it here to see if it could be added. I can switch to "desktop" version of the site to find it, but would be nice to have "Communities" available from the navigation alongside the circles.

There are 4 versions of access (?). Desktop, Mobile, iOS, Android. And there are older iOS versions where the current version won't run on older (pre-6) iOS. It would be nice if 1) Google supported all functions equally on all platforms. And 2) people made a point of saying which version they're talking about. It happens all too often here that there's a comment or post about a feature that's only on a couple of versions but the commenter doesn't say which.

This women's cells may have saved your life
Henrietta Lacks and her immortal cells
Did you know there is one women whose cells have been multiplied in laboratories across the world?   If we weighed all the cells that have come from this one women they would weigh as much as 100 Empire State Buildings.   This women's name is Henrietta Lacks and her cells called "HeLa" have been used in many of the greatest scientific discoveries or our time.  Her cells have been used to study gene mapping, curing polio, developing cancer drugs, studying AIDS, lukemia and the list can go on.  Her cells were even send up to space in a satellite to help us determine if human tissue could survive there.  

Henrietta Locks was a poor black women who died of cancer in 1951 when she was just 31 years old.  During her treatment, and without her knowledge, a sample of her tumor was send to a doctor at John Hopkins.  This doctor had  been trying to grow human tissue.   They discovered that Henrietta's cells, unlike other human cells, could live and replicate outside the body.   If you give her cells nutrients they will live and survive and replicate for what scientists believe is forever.  Even if they are frozen and then thawed they will continue to replicate. 

Henrietta never knew that her cells would become one of the most important tools in modern medicine.  She died in poverty and her husband and children didn't know till many years later that her cells would be one of the most important tools in modern medicine.
