Yaay! NO more square!
Instagram's move to go beyond its traditional square format could lead to a foundational shift in the way that brands use the Facebook-owned photo service.

WOW! GORGEOUS
 
SAIL Amsterdam ... "SAIL Amsterdam is one of the biggest attractions in Amsterdam and the greatest nautical spectacle in the world where scores of tall ships and hundreds of other historical ships gather along the river IJ for an amazing parade. The event is organized once every five years, usually between August 19 to August 23, during which the ships take part in various events such sailor choirs or re-enactments of naval battles. On the wharfs, the SAIL program organizes music and sporting events and children’s activities, and spectacular fireworks shows at night. Aside from the participating ships, thousands of smaller yacht and boats filled with spectators join them creating a unique sight.

The event was first held in August 1975 under the name 'Sail Amsterdam 700' to celebrate the 700th anniversary of Amsterdam. At that time, interest in tall ships, which had sunk to a low since the 1930s when the last commercial tall ships had been built, was starting to rise. The success of Sail Amsterdam 700 led to the establishment of the Stichting Sail Amsterdam (SSA, Foundation Sail Amsterdam). Since then the SSA has been organizing the event every 5 years.

SAIL Amsterdam is believed to be inspired by the Eerste Nederlandse Tentoonstelling op Scheepvaartgebied  — literally, “the First Dutch Exhibition in Shipping Technology”, that was organized in the summer of 1913. In addition to the real ships that visited Amsterdam, there were exhibitions that displayed models of modern boats, and paintings and drawings of historic ships. Concerts and rowing competitions were also organized. As with SAIL Amsterdam, the exhibition ended with a large fireworks.

Sail Amsterdam 2015, the ninth edition of the sailing event, will be held on scheduled date of 19 August until 23 August 23, and is expected to be attended by 2 million people. ..."

Gary, you would never believe my jury duty story. I was juror number 11 and ended up crying in the court room during a session with the judge, during the deliberations phase of the trial. I am NOT crier -- but this situation was incredibly stressful in an emotional way (not the business-stress I'm used to). This moment ended up being completely pivotal and changing the direction of the case and the outcome (for the good). It's one of those crazy stories that I wouldn't believe if someone told me. People who think one person can't make a difference? Dead wrong. #AskGaryVee +GaryVee

Some great insights here -- especially re: LinkedIn. I wrote a blog post last year saying essentially the same thing - don't ignore the goldmine there! http://www.cosmeticsocialmedia.com/2014/leave-no-stone-unturned-there-might-be-linkedin-gold-hiding-below/

I was introduced to Club Cascadas when I won a one week stay at a charity auction. What a unique and remarkable spot! The architecture is stunning and completely native to the area. Ed Giddings was the architect, now deceased, but his beautiful wife and family still run the resort along with Trading Places International. Much of the staff has been there since the resort opened, which lends to the family atmosphere. One does not feel like they are staying at a hotel, rather, like they are coming home to family. The food in the restaurant is spectacular, and there are theme nights every night (my favorite is the Mexican night). There's entertainment and fun activities for the whole family. Everything is very well thought out and the staff is incredible. Of course you can walk into town and sample other restaurants etc., but we have found that everything is so great at Club Cascadas that we don't really want/need to leave. There's a Cosco nearby as well as a Walmart supercenter for groceries if you want to have meals in your villa. They also have a spa on site and always have great deals on massages. We go back in two weeks, and I just can't wait.
