Grateful for being a part of this journey. Congrats to the +Google Maps​ team!
Sunday, February 8, 2015 at 9:00 AM. For 10 years Google Maps has made it easier to navigate and explore your world. If you hopped in your DeLorean for a trip back to before 2005, you'd remember the days when we were all dependent on paper maps, print-outs, post-its and sometimes even a compass ...

Cool. 
I love to surf Google Maps. Me kabhi kabhi raat ko jab bhi free hota hu to Google Maps se duniya ghoomta hu. Maps par Street view and photos dekh kar maza aata he. :)
Thanks Google. :)

Sounds like fake meat tasting as good as real meat could be available within a decade (with the first products available in 2015). Once perfected, fake meat will be healthier, cheaper, better for the environment (much less green house grass emissions), and just as tasty as real meat.
More protein than beef. More omegas than salmon. Tons of calcium, antioxidants, and vitamin B. In their secret R&D lab, the scientists at Beyond Meat concocted a plant-protein-based performance burger that delivers the juicy flavor and texture of the real thing with none of the dietary and environmental downsides.

[SF Bay Area Storm links - expand below]
If you’re a weather watching geek like me, any system that brings with it higher than normal precipitation and winds will be super interesting to you.. especially in the weather-boring San Francisco Bay Area.  The storm that’s arriving on our doorstep later this evening is a once in a decade or so thing.. so I’m watching closely!  :)  

People from outside the area will scoff (and so did I when I first arrived here from Ontario, Canada) but heavy amounts of rain and wind have significant impact to a ground surface area that don't get either in extreme doses very often.  That includes fragile trees/limbs and waterways that fill up fast.  I've come to appreciate the impact and no longer compare it to other areas.    

Here are the sites I have fired up in Chrome and I’m sharing them here:

Weather Underground Map [goo.gl/X4wL] - Tons of weather station data, webcams, radar etc that you can toggle on and off.  You can pretty much camp out on this mashup throughout the storm.  http://www.weather.gov is also a great weather site, powered by NOAA. 

Google Crisis Response Map [goo.gl/WCiCJc] - This map is the best place to see all official alerts (eg: National Weather Service), see Red Cross shelters if they end up being set up and community storm reports.  

Google Public Alerts [goo.gl/79LmWJ] - Clearinghouse for National Weather Service Alerts for Northern California.  When you go through to specific alert pages, tweets and news for that specific alert are also shown.

NWSBay Official Twitter account [goo.gl/qWPfhP] - National Weather Service San Francisco and Monterey Bay area.  Super geeky, TONS of data posted here.  

NOAA Real time river flood info and forecasts [goo.gl/BDHHe1
USGS WaterWatch [goo.gl/gAFPhy]

+NBC Bay Area *meteorologists to follow*: +Rob Mayeda, [Jeff Ranieri: goo.gl/X2gE6X]. Local video, maps on NBC Bay Area Weather site as well! goo.gl/HApkzC

Twitter "BayAreaStorm" hashtag: [goo.gl/FDbfbq]
*Google+ equivalent: #BayAreaStorm   

Super cool wind direction visualizer [goo.gl/nKlu8V] - Pure eye candy, nothing else.  :)  [via +Alex Roux]

Have I missed any?  

Another tip: Go on to your city/municipality’s website and email yourself a few links to things like Utility Outages [eg here: goo.gl/35Lh28 for Palo Alto].  This can end up being a lot easier to search down from your computer than on mobile if you’ve lost your electricity.  Also searching terms on Twitter like “outage yourcitynamehere” are good as well to see official accounts of municipalities or public utilities tweeting updates.  

Enjoy the storm - should be fun to experience together!

Manik,
Once I told you  and your fellow Google people about a better idea but you folks never got back to me. 
I have an revolutionary, although simple, idea to boost the usefulness of Google Map and Google Earth platforms.

The idea is to incorporate color maps of water flow velocity to the national and international water bodies, including lakes, estuaries, and large rivers which are already shown on Google Map and Earth as flat-and-dark-blue areas.

Tried the best new restaurant in Vancouver? Or London? Or Hong Kong? Now you can keep everybody in the loop by adding it to #GoogleMaps.

Our new favorite spot for Indian food. Their biryanis are particularly good.

Excellent food. We tried all vegetarian - papaya salad, red curry, veggie + tofu. All the food was great and really good spices. Will definitely visit again.

Extremely slow service on Friday night. Waited 20 minutes just to get the menu. Then waited a long time to get the food. And there was a hair in our food :(
