The figure of 1/5th seems a bit optimistic but a wonderful sign of the growing trend to produce high quality, nutritious food locally rather than hundreds if not thousands of miles away (and with less fossil fuels, fertilizers and non-natural inputs).

Hurray! 

Support your local community agriculture!

Once a hobby for office-weary city dwellers, urban farming has become an important source of food in the U.S. and globally.

Nice new feature.
 
Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

Some great insights here...

I for one love the Zoomer reference and am literally working on a business plan for the next chapter, something creative, ambitious, rewarding and fun that I want to do. Enough busy and make work, time to grow something real. Stay tuned.

Indeed, this looks to be a very interesting year with lots of blockchain projects going live. Most will fail, but from each we'll learn more and the subsequent iterations will become more and more useful.

My wife and I took their basic firearms class and found the staff and range to be extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. They have a wide range of equipment to try out and are eager to explain the differences and help zero in on the characteristics you like or to minimize anything you dislike in a particular firearm.
