+Yusra ELSawi They are rolling it out gradually. It was first only verified pages. Now they are rolling it out to people with iOS in the U.S. It seems they are wisely doing it in stage as to not overwhelm their system. I explain it all in the episode.

Changing the world One Blog At A Time
Introduction
"If you have ideas to share, you have a blog in your mind" - Leslie Samuel

--------------------------------

Everyone has ideas, and I believe that these ideas are meant to be shared. Our society is built on ideas. Ideas change the world.

Since 2008, I've been using the power of blogs to share my ideas with the world, and to teach others to do the same.

From Biology to internet marketing, I've seen how powerful blogs can for establishing authority, helping others, and even landing my dream job as a University Professor.

--------------------------------

What are my blogs?
  • Interactive Biology - Where I teach Biology to tens of thousands of people all over the world
  • Become A Blogger - My blog, podcast and training program where I teach others to build blogs that change the world. This project was done in collaboration with Gideon Shalwick and Yaro Starak out of Australia.
--------------------------------

So why am I on Google Plus?

Simple - because I believe that Google Plus ROCKS! I love the features and plan on using it more to interact with people all over the world to help share my ideas even further :)

Thanks for checking out my page. Hope to connect with you on here!

These guys do a great job. I like that you have to schedule your appointments. When I arrive, they are either ready to give me the cut immediately or I have to wait a few minutes. I can't remember ever waiting more than 10 minutes after my scheduled time to get a cut. They do a great job at cutting your hair and are often engaged in pleasant, typical barber shop talk. If you're in the Niles area (or Berrien Springs like myself), check these guys out.

If you live in the Berrien/St. Joseph area, there aren't many places to eat where you can take your kids and just let them be kids. Fire & Ice is the exception. They have a lot for kids to do. There's a game room, playhouse, and other activities so that you can let your kids run wild without being concerned about losing them. But that's not all. Their pizza is amazing and their I've cream is awesome. They make the ice cream in front of you using liquid nitrogen and they encourage you to bring any additional ingredients that you want to add to your ice cream. My pizza recommendation is the Tequila lime pizza. It's probably the best pizza I've ever had. All in all, I have to give this place a five star rating.

I've been to many university cafeterias and this is one of the better ones I've experienced. They have come a LONG way from when I attended as a student. They now have an "all you care to eat" menu where you pay one price and you can eat as much as you'd like. They don't give you large portions, but you can come back as many times as you'd like. If you're a vegetarian, you'll love it because their food is all vegetarian. They have a diverse menu that varies from day to day and they mix it up every so often with something unique. Pro tip: If you get your food to go, you get a carry out container, two cups and 2 fruit. You can stuff a whole lot of food in there. I often get one meal to go and fill it up so much that it lasts me an entire day. It's a beautiful thing ;)

I've never been to France, so I can't speak to the authenticity of the name "Baguette De France." However, I can say that these baguettes are amazing. The breads are great, the variety is awesome and the sauces are addicting. My favorite baguette is (surprisingly) the tuna salad baguette. It doesn't have a strong "tuna" taste. Instead, it's kinda sweet. Whenever we have friends visit Berrien, we take them here to experience the baguettes and they are never disappointed. It's one of the best things we have in Berrien. They also have a variety of vegetarian baguettes. So if you're not a meat eater, you'll still feel right at home :)

It's great to have a place with international foods from all over the world. I'm from the caribbean, and when I go here, I get a little taste of home. They even have prepared caribbean food on Thursday's and Friday. You can get all kinds of items that you wouldn't normally find in this area to cook with. Things like plantains and all kinds of seasonings that make you feel like you're on an island. However, the service isn't always the best and the food isn't always consistent. That's why I rated it three stars. But I'm glad this place is in Berrien. We need places like this with all the international students that are at Andrews University.

I've lived in at least five different apartments at Park Manor - from one bedroom, one bathroom to my current three bedroom, two bathroom apartments. They offer VERY affordable apartments. They aren't luxury apartments (hence the price). But, if you are a college student looking for affordable housing, it's one of the best places to rent. The management of the complex does a great job. When you sign a lease at Park Manor Apartments, Tom (the manager) sits down with you and walks you through all of their handbook. He makes everything extremely clear and you have no doubts about what is or isn't allowed. They take care of the grounds and are very responsive to any issues you may have. I've had a number of experiences where I've filled out a work request to get something fixed and had someone knocking on my door within a few hours to fix the problem. They have a laundry room that's accessible to all tenants (the machines take coins). And some apartments have their own washer and dryer. They have a little playground for the kids, but the sandbox is more like a "dirtbox" and leaves much to be desired. Besides that, it is a great place for kids to run around and have fun in a safe environment. Some of the apartments are a bit older, but they are regularly updating apartments as tenants leave. Some of the newer units have hardwood floors. All in all, you really can't beat the value that you get at a cost that doesn't break the bank.

Of all the Indian restaurants that are (or have been) in the area, this is my favorite. Their buffet is great with many options for meat eaters and vegetarians and the price is good. They have recently expanded their buffet and it has been even better. Make sure to get the Mango Lassi. It tastes really good.
