#BaltimoreRiots.
There is no question that "policing" needs to change in the United States. Protesters across the America, with an important message, have been hard-at-work, building progress, to stimulate real change. I'm disappointed that these gangs, looters and rioters, not protesters, are taking hostage of the narrative. 

We can do better.

More: Whether it's a riot after a game at the University of Arizona (http://goo.gl/VWPtuD) or the current #BaltimoreRiots, this disorder and violence is not okay.

I'm so glad that you pointed out that the people who attacked the cops are not the same as the protesters who have been peaceful and non violent this whole time.

Knowing how the media works, the gang members, looters, and rioters will be equated to the non-violent protesters and all of the people who have worked so diligently and been so persistent protesting will see it all lost.

One step forward, two steps back.

#AllTooWell
Jake Gyllenhaal jokingly told Ellen DeGeneres that he likes to take all of his dates to his mom's house (just like Taylor Swift suggested in her song "All Too Well"); plus, he revealed his awkward rock band past!

+The Associated Press​ is now reporting at least 3,218 people confirmed dead after massive earthquake in Nepal. This is absolutely devastating.

I just had the immensely sad task of sending the following to all Google employees. My thoughts are with everyone in Nepal, and with Dan's family and friends.

"Early this morning, Nepal experienced the worst earthquake in its history, registering 7.8 on the Richter Scale. Current reports are that over 1,000 people were killed. It's a terrible tragedy.

Sadly, we lost one of our own in this tragedy. +Dan Fredinburg a long-time member of the Privacy organization in Mountain View, was in Nepal with three other Googlers, hiking Mount Everest. He has passed away. The other three Googlers with him are safe and we are working to get them home quickly.

The Crisis Response team has launched Person Finder[1] for Nepal, and is working to get updated satellite imagery to aid in the recovery effort. Google.org is committing $1M to the response, and we’ll have gift-matching available soon.  

Our thoughts are with the people of Nepal, and with Dan’s family and friends during this terrible time."

The very meaning of being together, not the same.
Linda Thompson, Bruce Jenner's second wife, recounts, in detail, her time with Bruce Jenner. It's a fascinating read and provides great context into their time together and beyond, but it's what she said at the end (below) about compassion, diversity and humanity that really resonated with me.

In +The Huffington Post article, she states: "My hope and my prayer is that humanity has evolved enough and been properly educated to exercise kindness toward those who have struggled or who we may perceive to be 'different.' Our uniqueness, our individuality, and our life experience molds us into fascinating beings. I hope we can embrace that. I pray we may all challenge ourselves to delve into the deepest resources of our hearts to cultivate an atmosphere of understanding, acceptance, tolerance, and compassion. We are all in this life together."

Sapporo is a unique Japanese restaurant in Scottsdale that has a wide selection of choices for lunch and dinner. *FOOD* Absolutely fantastic! Whether it is lunch or dinner, they have tasty choices. The appetizer ribs are heaven and taste delicious. They have a special type of sauce that makes it perfect. The fried calamari is crunchy and one of the best that I've had in the Scottsdale area. Again, they have a special type of dipping sauce that tops it all off. There are also tons of sushi and even some that aren't listed on the menu, so be sure to ask! Everything there is amazingly fresh and the food doesn't take too long to come. One plate comes after the other! *DECOR* Sapporo has a big restaurant and it feels very spacious. There are 6 teppans, like Beninhana if that's your thing. The rest of the restaurant, in the middle of the 6 teppans, consists of tables and booths, both very comfortable to stay in for a couple hours. The furniture and other decor is modern and new, especially with the atmosphere, which is very upbeat. There is loud and recent music that plays. It makes everyone want to get up and dance. *SERVICE* The waiters and waitresses always have a smile on their face. Our waiter made many jokes while he was serving us and made the experience great. This isn't the only time the waiter has made us smile. Most of the food comes out pretty quickly. However, when it is very busy, it may take a little while longer. It's always good to call ahead to try and make a reservation, if for dinner. If they're having a slow night, they'll let you know and say that a reservation isn't necessary! Lunch is a lot more peaceful and the music is not as loud, along with quieter chatter.

The food tastes fantastic and the fries are super crunchy and fresh every time! The restaurant is a little outdated and smells funky occasionally.

The food at Wildflower Bread Company is amazing. There are a lot of healthy selections to choose from, that are also tasty as well. My personal favorite is the Asian Chicken Salad, but the sandwiches are great too. The setting is awesome. It is very open and spacious. The middle of the restaurant has several couch chair type things which are great and comfortable to sit on while waiting for friends. I don't know how they do what they do. You order and they magically find you by finding your card that's on the table. No matter where you sit, they'll find you. The food usually comes very quickly. If going at lunchtime on weekends, it may be hard to find seats at first, but there are also great seats outside, in the shade. The staff is friendly and will accomodate you with whatever you need.

It gets very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, especially when there are sports games! So make sure you want to wait, or get their a little bit early, unless you're there to watch. This can also make for slow service at times, but they try their best! The atmosphere is great, everybody's dining and having a great time! Make sure to try the Zipps or Golden Wings. They're delicious and cooked just right so that the outside is crispy.
