I like new tech, and old scotch; good stories, and bad jokes; craft beer and cookie-cut cookies.

The overwhelming majority of Americans were free of anything that resembled coherent liberal or conservative ideologies — indeed, only “about 17 percent of the public could both assign the terms ‘liberal’ and ‘conservative’ correctly to the parties and say something sensible about what the terms meant.”

I knew I was in a bubble when it came to my obsession fascination with politics, but I didn't realize how much.

Something a little lighthearted for your Friday afternoon.

Sometimes, after a long day’s work, you’ve just had enough. So when you hear the president’s motorcade whining its way up Connecticut Avenue toward your apartment in Washington, you instinctively lift your head off the sofa and think: What can I do, in this moment, to be the change I want to see in the world? Across the room, a “Not My President” placard sits behind your softball bat. But there’s no time. So you run to the window and you, you know, resist.

My Dad and his wife May were one of the many families who lost their home in the Tubbs fire in Santa Rosa last week. In a matter of hours, their home, their car, all their belongings and the entire Coffee Park neighborhood was gone.

While my Dad was in the hospital recovering from an emergency appendectomy, May was asleep and woke abruptly to police pounding on her door. She was told to leave immediately and was not able to get any of their belongings except for their two bunnies. As she left, she could see the house three doors down was in flames.

So much of what they lost is irreplaceable, but they can use all the help available to start putting back the pieces of their lives. Many of you have asked what you can do to help, so we set up this page to give friends and family the opportunity to help support them as they recover from this devastating loss.

It is going to be a long journey ahead for them. Thank you for your continued prayers, love and support – it’s incredibly comforting during this difficult time.

Even a simple re-share can help!

Thanks!

Google+ Community Spam Filter

Is there any documentation on what happens if the posts that are caught by the spam filter in a Google+ Community are just left there? I was told that leaving those posts there is a signal to Google's algorithms that those posts aren't spam, and while that seems like a really, really bad design, I can't really put it past Google to do something like that. :P

Any data or firsthand knowledge would be wonderful! Thanks!

Project Euler is a series of challenging mathematical/computer programming problems that will require more than just mathematical insights to solve. Although mathematics will help you arrive at elegant and efficient methods, the use of a computer and programming skills will be required to solve most problems.
