Hangout with Gary Sinise!
Sinise will be talking about advancing veterans and manufacturing. 
If you haven't heard of +VetNet HQ , it's using #humanmedia  in a unique way to more closely connect veterans with resources. 
 
Hang out with Gary Sinise and discuss how veterans are rebuilding America post-service by training for and entering careers in advanced manufacturing. Gary has been heavily involved in +Get Skills to Work, an initiative co-founded by +General Electric, +Lockheed Martin+Boeing+, +Alcoa, and The Manufacturing Institute, focused on training and hiring veterans to bridge the skills gap in advanced manufacturing. Get Skills to Work seeks to leverage highly skilled and adept veterans to revitalize a resurgent US manufacturing sector and contribute to the advanced manufacturing industry.

Gary and industry experts will discuss the program, its goals for the country and the industry, and how veterans can identify and pursue education and careers related to advanced manufacturing.

Hangout Participants:
Gary Sinise, Actor and veterans advocate
Jennifer McNelly, President of The Manufacturing Institute
+James Schmeling, Managing Director and Co-Founder of the +Institute for Veterans and Military Families 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by VetNet HQ. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Hangouts Help Air Force Engineer Overcome Hurdles
....to home ownership.  Here's how Hangouts helped Jose Bobe learn. 
 
Air Force Engineer Proves Knowledge is Power!
While our weekly YouTube videos inspired veteran Air Force engineer, Jose Bobe, to start his homeownership journey it's safe to say we were truly inspired by his passion and dedication to achieve.

Just wrapped a shoot in Moore, OK. +Veterans United did a story with an Air Force veteran who lost her home and belongings in a tornado. After our interview, we captured this moment of celebration on the front porch of the family's new home. Story to follow.

Hangouts Pulled from Google Glass
Incredibly disappointing. I understand the decision but why not label video Hangouts "experimental" so the bugs can get fixed? Please don't pull the plug on the #humanmedia platform altogether? Our veterans benefitted from the video call feature. Journalists and Doctors did too.

#GlassUpdates are back with KitKat for Glass, photo bundles & more  

You’ve been asking us when the next round of updates were coming. Well, they’re coming later this week! We know it’s been a little while, but this is a big one and we think it’s well worth the wait. Here’s what you’ll find in the new release:

KitKat for Glass – Our most exciting update is subtle, but big. We’ve been working on a significant upgrade to a new version of the Glass software. It’s not a change you can see, but it brings improved battery life and makes Glass more reliable and easier to update in the future. And now that Glass runs Android KitKat, developers can write Glassware using the latest Android SDK goodness, along with new features from our GDK.

Photo bundles – This one has been a long-standing request from our Explorers: now when you scroll through your timeline, your photos, videos and vignettes from each day will be organized in bundles so that you can swipe less and see more.

Photo replies in Hangouts – Photo sharing has been really popular amongst our Explorers, so we’ve added new ways to send photos in Hangout messages. The next time someone asks “what’s up,” tap “Reply” and then take a photo to show them. (If you already took the perfect photo, you can still tap to “Send” it in a Hangout message.)

Sending feedback – We always want to hear feedback from you on ways we can make Glass better so we’re making it even easier. Tap on the device info card in Settings and tell us what’s on your mind. If you need help, you can still send us an email, call us, or post in the Explorers Community.

Voice command sorting – With new features and Glassware, your voice command menu has grown pretty long. When you tap or say “ok glass,” voice commands are now sorted by recency and frequency, making it easier to see the commands you use most often and faster to access them from the touch menu. 

Video calls – We hold ourselves to high standards for the features that we build, and video calls aren’t living up to these standards. Explorers have told us so directly, and fewer than 10% of them use video calls. For this reason, we’ve made the hard decision to remove video calls from Glass until the experience is better. We don’t know when that will be, but in the meantime, keep an eye on MyGlass as more Glassware is built and released – we’re already seeing the developer community work on other video streaming services. We’ve always said that feedback from Explorers shapes Glass, and this is no exception.

…and more – This is a massive update and we couldn’t fit all the changes into this post, so watch the Glass Journal in the Explorers Community to see the rest.

I don't see any point in having +Google Glass without hangouts... right now it's just a pricey GPS... even the camera is worthless - it takes too long to come on and I miss the shot.
Hangouts and the hope for HOA on Glass was the only reason I got it.

Month of the Military Child 
Remembering my mother who didn't get to meet her father during World War II until she was 2 years old. 
 
A decision made by the brave to secure the land of the free.
Missing birthdays, special events, and other important milestones is not an easy task for the service member or the children they leave behind.

This month, take a moment to recognize the special sacrifices made by the ever resilient military child.

+Angelo J Rossi Isn't it wonderful that the veterans fought so we can maintain the right to express ourselves?  As you have above?

Help for Foster Families?
Two Columbia, MO foster families who are taking in new children are in need of beds, dressers, kitchen table and chairs. Perhaps you can't take in a child, but you have the means to help someone who is? 
Hope Chest for Kids would love your tax deductible donation to pay for the above. 573-881-7339  http://hopechestforkids.com/ Ask for Suzie Forbis.

Story
Tagline
Reporter for Veterans United Network. I Hangout with Heroes.
Introduction
12 time Emmy award winning reporter for the Veterans United Network, the broadcast channel for Veterans United. This is my personal account. Opinions my own.  I also freelance at KOMU-TV . I was the first journalist to use a Google Plus Hangout on TV and continue to mentor broadcasters and businesses on how to use Google + Hangouts, Helpouts and Human Media to connect with customers face to face. I believe See-Commerce with human interaction via webcam is the new layer of Social Media. I'm also a Glass Explorer and am using the new technology to bring Veterans closer to their memorials. Subscribe to my blog about Hangouts On Air and learn about the Human Media Movement.  Ask me about Veterans Virtual Tours for our nation's aging and terminally ill veterans. Learn about my upcoming Hangouts at the Veterans United Hangout Hub.  Check out our Veterans Stories and how we're enhancing lives for veterans and military families. I run, collect African art and play practical jokes.  Don't eat my powdered donuts. I have 2 children, 3 if you count my husband.  I've covered the aftermath of the 2004 Tsunami in Sri Lanka and Indonesia as well as Hurricane Katrina. In addition, I've produced documentaries in Vietnam and Guatemala about the world's mobility problem.

These guys are experienced in the window film process. Our furniture was faded and we weren't able to use our living room at certain hours of the day as the sun was so bright. I called Mark at Sound Performance and he came out asap to give us a quote on window film for our great room. Mark helped us select an appropriate shade that wasn't too dark. The crew's work was timely, no bubbles in the product and he followed up after the installation to make sure we were aware of the warranty. I would recommend Sound Performance to others.

Great service! Nate just installed a new unifi wifi system in our house and now we never lose our wifi signal. Nate was prompt, courteous, reasonably priced and is up on the latest technology. He even called around to some internet service providers to see which ones would be a better deal for us. I'd recommend him and his staff to anyone looking for computer repair or wifi setup. Thanks, Nate!
