+Laura Gibbs Website Builder! I used this for my storybook! It's free and a wonderful resource. 
Strikingly is a free to use website platform. I've used it for many websites. For example, my personal site Joshdbirdwell.com uses Strikingly. I highly encourage it! Plus, my storybook uses strikingly as well. There is no pro...

I was accepted to attend the Scholar Abroad: South Africa trip through the Henry Bellmon Office of Scholar Development and Undergraduate Research. I started a +GoFundMe  campaign to help pay for the international flight. Anything helps. I am extremely excited to go. This trip lines up with my passion for education & entrepreneurship. #studyabroad

I feel really lucky to have been here at G+ basically from the start; I'm really not sure what it is like to get involved now (I am curious what you might make of it!)... but back then, we were just connecting like crazy, and it really felt like we were building a whole network from scratch. Such a cool experience! If you are looking for a Google+ engineer to follow, +Yonatan Zunger is amazing. He shares some technical stuff, but mostly he just shares his own interests and questions, using G+ just like anybody else. He is a wonderful person to follow here.

Gary England was my childhood weather man! I am excited to watch this series on severe weather.
-----------
"This Sooner Series consists of short, entertaining videos that will give people of all ages a better understanding of Oklahoma’s severe weather patterns and events. This entertaining series will make it easy and fun for you to become familiar with the fundamentals of our weather, the history of weather forecasting, and the technology used by meteorology professionals to keep the public as safe as possible."
Oklahoma's own Gary England and The University of Oklahoma have teamed up to create this exciting new series designed to help you prepare for Oklahoma's severe weather.
