Say what you want about G+... It may not be as addicting as FB or as convenient as Twitter, but what it does, it does really well. Google+ has allowed me to meet a decent number of people who have both similar and different opinions than I have, and to engage with them in fairly meaningful ways. I've had serious disagreements with people, and some cool moments with others, but that's the point - more than any other social media platform, G+ promotes dialog by allowing the users the freedom to dictate the conversations. There's everything here - from cat memes and funny videos, to darker topics, like racial hatred and intolerance - and as a user, I get to choose what discussions to engage in. I really appreciate the service G+ provides, and hopefully Google continues working on and improving it. 
Though it’s been declared over more times than we can count, it looks like Google’s social network is finally on death’s door.

The assertions made in this article - and more so the assertion made by Marc Lamont Hill (@marclamonthill) - that the "All Lives Matter" hashtag is an affirmation of white supremacy, are completely ignorant. If #Alllivesmatter affirms white supremacy, then - by the same argument - #blacklivesmatter is an affirmation of black supremacy. One cannot be true of the other is not.

Saying that all lives matter is an affirmation of the value of human life in general, not a rally cry for white hate. The "black lives matter" mantra, on the other hand, is an affirmation of the systemic victim mentality that pervades the African American community.

By invoking that hashtag, African Americans are reiterating the belief that we're constantly being "picked on" by the white establishment. It completely ignores the empirical evidence that statistics on education, crime, domestic violence, and socioeconomic status can provide. It's simply true that more education leads to higher income. It's also true that blacks (especially black youth) don't value education in the same way other racial groups do. Is the quality of the education lesser? Yes, but as a result, the grading system is much less stringent than in predominantly white schools. An easier path to passing grades should lead to increased matriculation, and yet, in overwhelmingly black schools and neighborhoods, it doesn't.

When we don't prioritize education over the "hustle", we set in motion a chain of events that leads directly to increased poverty, drug use, crime, and incarceration. Is the white man to blame for our lack of ability to set priorities, or take accountability for our choices and actions? Nope. We actively choose that fate, and then have the audacity to complain about the self-fulfilling prophecy that we've set in motion. Nobody throws up the #blacklivesmatter when some gang bangers shoot up a neighborhood, and kill 3 or 4 of their own people... The truth is that "black lives matter" is only relevant to black people when they have a white person to point the finger at. That makes the hashtag - in my mind - inherently racist and intentionally divisive and inflammatory.

Do black lives matter? Of course they do, but not more so than Asian, Hispanic, Arab, Native American, European, or white lives. We need to stop with the cop-out, stand up and say, "yep, my problems are partially my fault too".

So on that note - #Alllivesmatter 

On a side note, I also find "Black Twitter" to be a joke... If "White Twitter" was a thing, blacks would be screaming "racism" until they were blue in the face. Yet another example of blacks intentionally segregating themselves from society in an attempt to create the perception of exclusion where it doesn't exist. 
Yep, we’re here again. People are questioning the premise behind the “Black Lives Matter” phrase, arguing that it’s divisive and suggests a superiority and that “All Lives Matter” is more appropriate. They refuse to understand the unique set of challenges that black people face in being subjected to excessive police...

+Jay Hiza​ is absolutely correct, +Dan Weese​. Sure, there are still some white racist bigots out there actively pursuing their hateful and ignorant agenda, but they are now a small minority...and close to irrelevant. The main thing keeping black people "down" and segregated today are black people. I see it every single day...and its sad and very frustrating.

Stephen A makes the same point I made the other day - ALL lives matter, not just black lives. The truth is, black lives only matter to black people, when there are white people to blame. If there's not going to be any outcry when blacks kill each other, then I guess black lives (in the collective sense) don't really matter much to black folk, now do they? This kind of selective, subjective protest is laughable and myopic. 
ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith has made a habit of going against the grain on controversial issues -- and he continued that trend on Tuesday. Weighing in on the divisive "black lives matter" movement, Smith asked Twitter why there's not outrage among "black lives matter" advocates when "black...

Finally done with this watch. I redid it completely from scratch, because the images I used for the screenshot were slightly off.

This is an inverted 24 hour watch, with a dial divided into 10 minute segments. It will only make one full rotation each day, but the accuracy is on point. As the second image shows, the unique nature of the watch dial also accurately tracks the position of the sun. There's additional description in the watch file itself. Enjoy guys!

Botta UNO 24 (black and orange) - http://facerepo.com/app/faces/details/botta-uno-24-black-orange-14ea02ecd0b

Sorry for any confusion with the sun location image, guys. While I pulled it directly from the Botta website, there's no way (at least I can't find a way) it can be accurately replicated in Watchmaker.

Anyone else remember when Gio was supposedly the next Ronaldinho? People thought it would be him, not Messi, who took Barca forward into an era of dominance... Yeah, about that. Four years later, and Gio has signed away his career, to play for the LA Galaxy. Sure, he's "in his prime" at 26, but here's the reality - Dos Santos isn't really any good. Yep, he'll be good in the MLS, because he's going to a loaded team in a very weak league - a league who's biggest domestic star is the aging Clint Dempsey. A league whose best player is Giovinco - a guy who was supposed to carry the mantle of Del Piero at Juve, and who flamed out. A league with a 34 year old leading scorer in Robbie Keane, and whose "greatest ever" player - Landon Donovan - wasn't even good enough to play in the Prem (Donovan only scored 7 goals in 30 games over 8 years, outside of the US).

The MLS may look at this as a win - they'll certainly gain more Mexican viewers as a result - along with the signings of Gerrard, Lampard, and Kaka, but the truth is that the designated player (typically over-the-hill former EPL players) is hurting the American game. Our problem is that we don't develop young talent properly, which is why we fail in major tournaments (and no, the Gold Cup isn't a major tournament). Instead of tying up $21 million on 3 designated players per team, we should be pumping that money into youth systems, but nooooo... This is 'Murica, where we're, instead of taking a steady approach to building the game, we're splashing out cash (on antiquated former stars) in a vain attempt to be relevant. This is why - when it comes to football - America can't have nice things. 
Their Far East tour may've courted controversy - including criticism from within - but Barcelona directors will welcome the squad back this week thrilled wi

This is, without question, the best sushi spot in the area. The sushi and sashimi is always fresh, the staff is very friendly, and the atmosphere is nice. The only complaint I can have is that seating can be a little bit cramped at times, but other than that, I highly recommend eating here.

This place is easy to overlook due to its location, but honestly, they do a good job. You're paying Chinese takeout prices for fairly substantial portions, and the food is good (not great though). I'll swing in here for a quick bite to eat every now and then, and I haven't been disappointed yet.

I live right down the street from Tung Tin, and I order from them regularly (about twice a month). The staff is incredibly friendly and professional, their delivery is anyways prompt, the prices are very reasonable, and the food is good. In fact, there's only one place in the state that I've gotten better Chinese takeout, and it's in Smithville. If you're in the mood for Chinese, you absolutely can't go wrong with Tung Tin.

For the price, their pizza is good - not great. I agree with other reviews that the staff is often incredulous, rude, and unprofessional, but I tend to overlook that slightly because I always get delivery, so I don't have to deal with the staff face to face. Overall, the pizza (that's all I ever get there) is acceptable, but it's nothing to write home about. Not a bad option for a simple beer and pizza night.

I might be in the minority here, but I detest this place. For starters, I never order from them, simply because they don't accept cards. In a college town, that is completely mind boggling. Secondly, their pizza is sub-par, and far greasier than I personally care for. The staff is rarely friendly, but never actually rude, so I can't complain too much on that front, but the restaurant itself always looks and feels dirty. The only saving grace for El Greco is that it's open super late, and they're fairly fast.

I really used to enjoy Cluck-U on occasion, but the quality of this particular location has become shockingly bad. Very little value for money here, and if you can spare 20 minutes (less than the time it takes Cluck-U to deliver), you can make far better wings at home. Hit the grocery store and buy a package of wings for $4, get a wing sauce of your choice for $4, and some blue cheese dressing for $3,and you can make 20-25 wings for less than the cost of a 10-piece at Cluck-U.

I live in South Orange, and shop at Eden, downstairs - my shopping experience has already been great, so when they opened up the restaurant, I was definitely going to try it. By the look of the place, you'd expect a top notch dining experience... It looks like a great date spot. Unfortunately, the ambience is about all Above has to offer. The servers are attentive, but not annoyingly so; they do their job, and do it well, and as I mentioned, the decor is really nice. However, their food portions - in relation to the price - are outrageous at least, and offensive at worst. I paid $24 for my (6) lobster ravioli, and while the presentation was nice, the entire dish was under seasoned and bland, and never came close to justifying its price tag. My date went for the lamb burger - something I was very interested in seeing, because I buy the same burgers at the grocery store downstairs for $3.50 for a package of two. Well, her $18 burger came, looked beautiful, and... Just like my ravioli, fell woefully sort of expectations. The burger was dry (lamb should be medium at most, medium rare is best though) and not seasoned at all, other than the herbs that the butcher puts in them downstairs. I've made the same burgers for my friends and family, and they've been lightyears better. These days, the only thing I go to Above for is a drink after work. Sitting on the patio is a nice experience on a nice night. I've had drinks with a few women there, and they always ask why I haven't taken them there to eat, and I tell them everything I just described. If I want to pay NYC prices, I'll get on the train and go to the city.
