This tip is very usefull for masterclasses. It merges hangouts with Chromecast just with a simple trick. I hope in the future hangouts become more friendly with chromecast as well as android phone calls.
If you've got a Chromecast, it's possible that you've thought about some creative Chromecast uses, including considering how you might use it to Chromecast a Hangout session. Why is a different question. But how? That's actually surprisingly easy. First off, there are a number of methods offered by other people online. Don't bother with them.…

House Speaker John Boehner said approval of the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline and the repeal of key parts of Obamacare are among Republicans' top priorities now that the GOP has won control of both houses of Congress.

"Obamacare is hurting our economy, it's hurting middle-class workers, and it's hurting the ability to create more jobs," Boehner said, adding that Republicans want to replace it with "common-sense reforms."

Among those reforms, according to the Ohio Republican, would be eliminating the individual mandate that requires employers to provide health insurance for their employees.

Boehner said those changes to Obamacare would pass in the House, but he wasn't sure whether Republicans in the Senate could surmount a 60-vote threshold to clear a filibuster.

He acknowledged that President Obama is unlikely to sign such changes, despite the election results.

"My job is to listen to the American public," he said. "And they've made it clear that they don't want Obamacare.

"The president said, 'I listened to what happened on Tuesday.' I say, 'Really?' " the speaker said.

The speaker's remarks largely echoed an op-ed he wrote with Sen. Mitch McConnell, who is expected to become Senate majority leader when the new chamber is seated in January.

Facing reporters for his first post-election news conference, Boehner ticked off a list of items at or near the top of the GOP agenda. They also include reducing the nation's debt, overhauling the tax code and changing the legal and regulatory systems.

The speaker also warned that if Obama takes unilateral action on immigration, he risks losing a revolt by GOP lawmakers and the possibility of a comprehensive deal.

"I believe if the president acts on his own, he risks poisoning the well," Boehner said. "If you play with matches, you will get burnt."

Boehner said immigration had been a "political football" for the past decade or so. "It's time to do something about it," he said.
In his first news conference since an overwhelming victory for Republicans on Tuesday, the House speaker also said approval of the Keystone XL pipeline is a key item on the GOP agenda.

Patients are often killed not by the virus itself, but by the overreaction of their immune system to the infection. Here, Ian Sample explains how Ebola is transmitted, the organs it disrupts, the symptoms of infection and the chances of survival.

Introduction
Hi, I’m Mark. I am an award winning reporter at WTSP 10 News, the CBS affiliate in Tampa Bay. You can view examples of my work here. I report, shoot, write, and edit daily stories for our TV news product, present them online, and showcase them through an array of social media listed on my homepage. Before joining WTSP in February, 2014, I worked as a morning anchor and reporter at WAND-TV, the NBC affiliate in Decatur, Illinois. After two and a half years of waking up up at 2:30 a.m., I don’t think I’ll ever stop being a morning person! Also, I love dogs and coffee. Please feel free to email me or connect with me through the social media listed here. Thanks for visiting, and keep in touch!
