Powerful video about our relatively long peace
While depressing at first, a powerful and uplifting video by the end (only 18 minutes) — as we now are living through the most peaceful time in human history, especially compared to the period of World Wars in the first half of last century. Video here: https://www.vox.com/2015/6/8/8746611/world-war-ii-deaths

Google+ Growth Much Faster Than Facebook Growth
Many “experts” — that i read — say, “Google+ is a ghost town,” so i decided to check in with www.internetlivestats.com. Looks like Google+ is growing much faster than Facebook in active users. Do you think Google+ will someday have more active users than Facebook?

Do you practice yoga? Does it help to mitigate anxiety?
Why is it important to take time in silence?
+Grace Dubery talks Meditation

With a world that likes immediate gratification, meditation might not seem important. Sometimes nothing happens but frustration that you should be doing something else. It is a long haul journey, as opposed to a “right now” sensibility.

How does Grace encourage fidgety folks to stay put?

"It has to do with slowing down the practice at the end. Restorative poses can help trick the body into meditation by making the body melt. Sometimes I ask people not to leave. You have to teach people that it is important."

Do you still use the iTunes store? What is your preferred method for finding tunes you like today?
Today in History: Apple announced 1 billion songs had been downloaded from iTunes Store, 2006
On February 23, 2006 — 9 years ago today — Apple announced that one billion songs had been legally downloaded from its iTunes Music Store. The one billionth tune was “Speed of Sound” by Coldplay, and the individual who downloaded the tune on Coldplay’s X&Y album was Alex Ostrovsky from West Bloomfield, Michigan. This statistic reflected amazing growth in the less than 3 years the store had been in existence.

To encourage sales as the one billion download approached, Apple announced a contest. The grand prize winner, Alex Ostrovsky, won a 20-inch iMac, 10 5th generation iPods, and a $10,000 iTunes gift certificate. In addiction, Apple established a scholarship to the Juilliard School of Music in Alex’s name.

Latest available statistics, published by “expandedramblings.com,” show that the iTunes’s growth has continued over the last 9 years since the one billionth download was reached (although by other reports some serious deceleration is occurring recently, as more users are streaming music on streaming services): as of 2/6/2013, there had been 25 billion song downloads from 800 million users who have 400 million credit cards on file with Apple. (The last two stats were updated 4/24/14).
