Delivering value.
+United, the airline with the world's most comprehensive route network, is creating the world's most #FlyerFriendly airline. Some of the amazing things they are doing and investing in include:
—5,000 daily departures to 370 airports in 6 continents
—strategically placed hubs in 7 largest business centers in US
—founding member of Star Alliance, the world's first, largest and most comprehensive airline alliance
—youngest, most fuel-efficient fleet of 700+ aircraft with new aircraft every year
—more premium cabin, flat-bed seats and extra-legroom, Economy Plus seating than any airline in North America
—in-flight WiFi on most domestic, international and Express aircraft 
—United Private Screening / personal device entertainment service for watching entertainment on your own devices
—45 United Club locations with millions in investments
—terminal facilities upgrades in SFO, IAH, BOS, LHR, ORD, LAX, EWR
—better response to travel disruptions with self-service tools and clear and transparent policies
—industry-leading, award-winning mobile app

If you've flown United in the past, and did not enjoy the experience, I encourage you to give United another look. In the past couple years, they have invested in all areas of the airline and are well on their way to creating the world's most Flyer-Friendly airline.

Congratulations +Marissa Mayer!
Marissa is pregnant and expecting identical twin girls! Just like she did with her son, she's taking limited time away from +Yahoo.
With great happiness, Zack and I have some exciting news to share – I’m pregnant!  In fact, I’m expecting identical twin girls, likely arriving in December.  The twins part was quite a surprise, because I have no family history of twins or any other predisposing factors.  However, as I’ve now learned, identical twins occur by random chance in roughly 1 out of approximately every 300 pregnancies.  Zack and I have embraced the surprise and are very...

Say you'll see me again, even if it's just pretend.
+Taylor Swift premiered her newest music video, Wildest Dreams, at tonight's +MTV  #VMAs , all proceeds of which will be donated to the African Parks Foundation of America.

Right after, she hopped on stage to sing "The Night is Still Young" and "Bad Blood" with +Níckí Mínaj. What is life.

I feel sorry for the relatives and friends of people on that flight. It's never ending. I hope they find closure at some point.

Being surrounded by people so willing to share so much happiness, joy and love is magical and a reason I will always love #CampEmeraldBay and the family I have made there. I was so grateful I was able to visit, even if for only a couple days.

Kona Grill is a fantastic place to hangout, people-watch and eat good food. They close kinda early on some nights, but their Happy Hour is fantastic (3-7PM) and (9PM-close). Really affordable and lots of menu options, even on the Happy hour menu! There's usually a line, so be sure to get an OpenTable reservation beforehand. Go during the evening when the sun is going down and sit outside.

Service was quick. Food was hot and fresh. For breakfast, get the A or B meal on the menu. Great view of the inside of the airport.

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.

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.
