Larry Wilmore of The Nightly Show gets it right when it comes to the no fly list gun control and the recent Congressional sit-in. I recorded the whole thing by hand. Forgive the shakes.

I'm about to start a blogger outreach/influencer outreach campaign for the best coconut oil. I would love any recommendations for any lifestyle, fitness, style, foodie, beauty, vegan, paleo, vegetarian bloggers, YouTubers, Instagramers, etc, that you love to follow, read, and watch. I already have a list of 240 but I would love to add ~60 more if you have any recommendations. Can be URLs, handles, etc. Thanks in advance!

So, while most of the time I'm sporting my Shoei RF-1100, I sometimes like to ride open-faced.

I bought a Bell C500 but it makes me look like the Great Gazoo http://imgur.com/gallery/OL9BaZS -- see? https://flic.kr/p/yNC891

Call me a dum-dum but I am looking for a low-profile, retro-style, barely-legal (if need be) lid that doesn't make me look any more of a dork than I already am as a middle aged man rolling down the street on my sweet 1995 BMW K1100LT.

Something less bulbous, closer to the head, a little cooler. Yes, I have an enormous head, but I am sure there's a solution somewhere. Think Easy Rider.

What do you recommend? Please offer recommendations with a clean conscience. It's just that every once in a while I envy those cafe racers and Harley riders their illegal beanie helmets helmets a little and would just love to get a little more wind in my face.

Sometimes I wake up Born to be Wild. Sometimes I wake up feeling like I just want to be an Easy Rider.

Thanks in advance!

From +Shashi Bellamkonda:
"Hi All,

Wanted to share this with you. We are organizing a webinar on trends in local search and insights with Collin Colburn of Forrester Research http://sfsoc.us/28Oayi0 . Thought you and your team may be interested in attending.

Collin will be sharing insights fresh from his Forrester Research report that has just been published. You can expect to hear trends like :- Digital spend is overtaking TV spend this year, search is becoming more contextual with local (50% of local search have local intent) and tactics companies use to entice local searchers.

We expect to get insights from research that has not been released before by Forrester including

Why local now?

What is local search?

What types of companies should care?

What offers should I give?

Get Recommendations on how to entice local searchers

I am looking forward to your being delighted by this webinar.
Regards,

Shashi"

Earned media influencer marketing is time-consuming. It is like sales. It’s cold-calling. And, like sales, the better the company you represent, the better the product you offer, the better. You can’t just hand out widgets online and expect a successful earned media campaign.

Hi +Chris Abraham​. I would like to offer a friendly piece of advice to improve your engagement on Google+:


I received a notification for this post because you probably included Extended circles, _Your circles, or specific circles when you shared it with Public. Sharing in the manner I described can create notifications that the recipients do not want. Many people therefore view it as a form of spamming. Their reactions frequently include uncircling, muting, blocking the poster and even reporting them for spamming. I therefore encourage you to stop including others when sharing with Public except in the following cases:

* where you +mention people in your posts -- Part of the reason for +mentioning is to notify those individuals (assuming their notifications allow you to notify them).

* when notifying family or close friends who you know will not take offense to notifications from you.

* if you have set up a “notification circle” of people who asked you to be notified. (Note that it is extremely poor etiquette to tell people you will notify them unless they ask not to be notified.)


That being said, please either follow the advice above or remove me from your circles. I prefer not to have to mute you because that could prevent my being able to help you if you ever need to come to the Google+ Help community for assistance.

Both high-end and foodie-wowing while also being down-to-earth. I had an amazing dining experience with my girlfriend. She doesn't eat red meat but there was plenty choice for her, too. The deserts were to die for, especially a pastry called the Paris–Brest. I am old family friends with the founders, Sarah Obraitis -- I went to college with her brother -- but please don't let that get in the way of this positive review.

It's the only place in the Metro DC area I would use to maintain, fix, repair, and restore my 1995 BMW K1100LT touring motorcycle, and Khanh Nguyen is the only mechanic I would trust her with. He's "my mechanic." I'll never get any other bike besides a BMW and I'll never use another mechanic besides EUBMW. I have been using him since 2013.

Fantastic place to browse and buy bikes -- and receive service under warranty. The people are charming but they have their hands full. They're best at high-end and new bikes. Leave the old and restored bikes to other shops like Crossroads Cycle or EUBMW.

The best pho in the US. Cafeteria dining. Cash only. I get the number 14 and get the beef raw. It cooks in the soup. I also get the young coconut water. With slices of coconut. Perfect. Number 14 has bible tripe. There are many other items on the menu.
