*I think someone must have felt a disturbance in the force.  Why U suddenly give faster speed already?  Not that I'm complaining, but the capability has been there for some time.

As many on NewsBlur noted, pretty much this is the clearest explanation of what the #heartbleed  deal is all about.  So if you're not clear yet, read and be made a bit more brilliant.

What did parents ever do with their time, while waiting for kids' appointments?  I know; they read books and newspapers.  Well, I just can't take any more 'Feast for Crows' today, so thank goodness for NewsBlur my very cool newsfeed aggregator.  _"...and when the box opens, I return to this presence...'_  With a tip o' the hat to +Samuel Clay for being the awesome guy he is, making NewsBlur a very very nice app to have!

"Pop Spots" are the unlikely places we all have seen a million times, but we never really knew where they were.  Here are a few of them for your sensory pleasure....

"Why was Tesla banned? It sold cars. It built showrooms where customers could check out a vehicle, arrange a test drive, and buy a car. The hitch was that Tesla sold cars directly to the public, without going through independent dealers."
Last month, New Jersey decreed that Tesla would have to shut down its showrooms. The problem: Tesla sold cars directly to the public, without going through independent dealers. Auto dealers around the country have been lobbying state governments to force the company to change its ways.

Story
Tagline
To make equal and complete access to knowledge for all people is the highest-level achievement to which we may aspire.
Introduction
Living life gratefully and (hopefully) humbly, with three ladies of dignity and grace.

This account is run by a real live person.  I enjoy reading about what others are doing and thinking, and spend an hour or so each day on The Goog reading and taking notes.

I am an International MBA candidate at Southern NH University.  My focus in the program is in operations and supply chain management. I perform a domestic engineering, operation & transportation role for three clients, whom I can only describe as "the loves of my life."   It's gonna suck, when school gets done - I could get used to being home for them.
 
If you found me on your 'Follower' list:
  1. Follow me Back!  Please look through my recent shares and content.  See if anything there matches or piques your reading taste.  If you see items you like, _feel free to follow me back._
  2. No Spam Promise:  This is a personal account.  If a product or service is mentioned here, it's because I have something to talk about related to it.  I will not write a Buzz for purposes of sales or any kind of data collection.
  3. "Un-Follow" Position:  We will all follow someone we end up not liking so well later on.  No problem!  I stop following people sometimes. If I think some content is offensive I write the person explaining what I think is the problem. Please do the same - if I offend, please tell me where & how!  You will be helping me improve my content for everyone.

Super tasty, I like Tapas in general and this is with local ingredients (long listing of local farms supplying them) and really creative flavor alchemy. Service was friendly attentive and prompt. What more? Going back soon.

I have been to Good Karma several times and have nothing but good things to say. The grind of coffees ( _very_ important) are flavorful; the smoothees are delicious; the fully organic and natural muffins, deserts, and entrees are just wonderful. There is even a nice garden outside where my dog and I can hang out (see my picture) Nice plus, the management have a second floor with additional seating for lounging and offer movies occasionally. Now all I have to do is get there to hear some of the music that's being played by local musicians, and I would have a full picture. But since I haven't heard them yet, you'll have to go there yourself and check it all out.
