Google is apparently testing out a new way to deliver search results: by turning links black instead of blue: https://t.co/tAL2FkW5Sx 
The search giant is testing out all-black search result links, users report.

In honor of Safer Internet Day yesterday, the search giant is offering #GoogleDrive users an additional 2 gigabytes of storage permanently if they perform a 2-minute security check before February 17.
The 2-minute settings check verifies account recovery info, recent activity and approved devices.

Influencer outreach is important, but not because we rely on those with an audience. Such efforts are destined to fail. Here is how to do it right.

"Romona Foster is a super talented Social Media expert. Our brand has improved vastly with her expert analysis of our old product and development of our new presence in social media. I highly recommend Romona! She is a great asset to our organization." ~ Bill Jones, President National Sales Network (NSN) DC/Baltimore

"I had the pleasure of attending a Linkedin Symposium given by Romona Foster (Admintech Consulting). Her knowledge and insightful techniques helped me to improve my use of this "HOT" social media business tool to generate more contacts, quality leads, and increase more business with 501(c) 3 non-profit organizations." ~ Greg Hunter, Managing Director, Starion Energy, Inc.

"Romona is very attentive to her student's needs and throughout her class I felt she made sure we all got what we went there for and even more. I learned a lot and I can't wait to go back for part II. I also felt less intimidated about social media to the point that made me wonder why I didn't do that before. Thank you very much Romona!" ~ Flavia Campos, Founder of Soothing Spaces, Professional Organizers

"I had the pleasure of meeting Romona Foster at a Linkedin seminar... The class was amazing! I went equipped with specific questions that needed answers, and she provided them. In addition to being very knowledgeable of this social media tool, she's a sharp, engaging instructor who managed to hold her students’ attention. I can't wait to attend Part II of the Linkedin seminar to learn more about maximizing the benefits that this social media tool has to offer. In fact, I've already inquired about the Twitter class that she will be teaching in January 2013. Also, to finally join the social media revolution and feel comfortable doing so, I plan to take additional classes with her. Some of my friends need help navigating through these new communication tools, and I will be sure to pass Romona's name on to each and every one of them." ~ Desiree French, Communications Manager, Downtown DC Business Improvement District (BID)

It wasn't long in working with her before I found myself learning new and useful things that proved to enhance my company's social media presence. She's very personable, savvy and results oriented and I would recommend her to anyone looking to enhance their social media presence and success in the marketplace." ~ Sylvia Baffour, Life Coach & Professional Speaker

"Without Romona, I would not be in the position I am now. Her unbelievable critical thought to create a profile for me that allows employers to have a comprehensive view of my professional experience is nothing short of amazing. She spent significant time with me and pushed me to think about all of the attributes that I wanted to be reflected in my professional resume. From there she was able to take all of the information create a masterful document that has opened many doors for me. I highly recommend her...!" ~ David Hardy, Jr., Executive Director of Regional Achievement at State of New Jersey Department of Education

The seond time is a charm! I ordered from Sardi's Pollo A La Brasa, Takoma Park today for the second time, and had to write this review. If you have not tried this place before, be sure to do so. I have ordered the Churrasco de Pollo, Rice and Beans, French Fries, Coleslaw, and De Casa Salad, and every bit of it was AMAZING! In addition, I tried the Peruvian Corn and Tres Leche, but sorry to say, they were not for me. The Peruvian Corn was not very flavorful, and the Tres Leche cake was soaking in about a 1/4 cup of milk. That may be the traditional way, but again, it was not for me. I've had Tres Leche at other Peruvian restaurants and it was delicious. This will not stop me from ordering from Sardi's again. The drivers have been super friendly, and today I had to call because my order was taking a little longer than the time listed online. The gentleman on the phone was very nice and apologetic. The fact that it was late didn't really bother me. I was just checking on it, since it is just two days after #blizzard2016. They still brought it to my door even though the snow was high. Would I recommend Sardi's Pollo A La Brasa, Takoma Park? Absolutely ,,, and highly!

Great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Always service with a smile. The people who work here seem to really enjoy people. The staff gets along very well. The restaurant is always clean. The food is always fresh and delicious. The only thing I would change is the music is a little too loud. The manager, Lerrina, is great with customers and her staff! I highly recommend la Madeleine Silver Spring.

I had the pleasure of experiencing this AMAZING Artesian Water at the Spring Mill Bread Company in Takoma Park. I know this sounds corny, but it was so smooth and refreshing that I went back to get a second bottle. Not only that, when I got home, I went to their website to find their email address to ask them where I could buy it in my area. I sent an email to them at 8:50 PM and got a response from someone named Steve at 9:10 PM. It was unbelievable! A response in 20 minutes and at night time. Now, that's what I call EXCELLENT customer service. Steve answered my question, and thanked me for reaching out to them. (ANSWER: "Whole Food Market stores in the region, plus Dawson Market, and a few other local stores" is where they can be found.) Do you think Virginia Artesian Bottling Company has a new Raving Fan? You better believe it! To them I say, keep up the good work. You've got a 5-star product and excellent customer service. That's a win-win situation!

Great atmosphere. The servers and management are always friendly, but the quality of service is not always there. Too many times I have to get up and take silverware from another table or get up to find my server. Also, the cooks are very heavy on the salt - particularly with the beans and rice. The rule of thumb is to salt lightly after preparing not while cooking. If you have high blood pressure be very careful what you eat here. Salads may be your safest selection.

NOTE: PIZZA ROMA IS NOW CLOSED! This restaurant is filthy dirty. It needs a visit from the health department ASAP. I went in really hungry, but after taking a look around I decided the safest thing to order was probably French fries. I walked to the counter and stood and watched one man playing with his cell phone, and two young guys rolling what looked like batches of chicken fingers (with no gloves) into plastic wrap. I waited until one of them turned around and walked to the counter. He picked up a long plastic fork and leaned on his elbow. He asked if he could help me. I was shocked that he had just finished touching raw poultry and came to wait on me without washing his hands. I said to him I'd like to order some French fries, but surely you're going to wash your hands before you make my order. He nonchalantly said, yeah, I will. He walked over to a corner where I couldn't see him, so I moved so he was in my view. I noticed he leaned on the sink, and was talking to the guy he was rolling the chicken with. The guy gestured to let him know I was looking, so he turned on the water and ran his hands under it. He did not use any soap. He then picked up a roll of paper towels, cut off a piece and wiped his hands. He walked back over to the station where the guy was rolling the chicken and threw, I repeat, threw his paper towel in the corner on the floor. There was no trash can in or near that area. I said to him, you can cancel that order, this place is disgusting, and I left. The people who wrote the other reviews Must have the wrong Pizza Roma or are friends of the proprietors or staff. This place did not get that disgusting over night. If you are contemplating paying this place a visit, think again. Don't put your health in jeopardy.

I stopped in to Johnny Rockets while I was at Union Station as nothing else really appealed to me. All I can say is, what a HAPPY place! I was immediately greeted by a waiter, Sollan. He was extremely friendly. A young lady, Lidya, kept checking on me, and the manager, Altaf was wonderful! I love the upbeat atmosphere and music. Normally, I would not have stopped in because I think of it as a burger joint, but I was able to find something on the menu that I can eat. Recommending Johnny Rockets to all!
