CA All-state men's choir. This arrangement for men of "No Time" begins about half way through.
I LOVE "No Time", one of my favorites.

Looks promising....
Here's a new way to automatically send your Google+ posts to Twitter and (ugh) facebook.

I'm on the +Mike Elgan diet meaning that almost all of my content is done here on Google+. Then I pipe it automatically to Twitter and facebook.

+Linda Lawrey told me about +ManageFlitter which is good and it is what most people use. But I think I found something better: +Friends+Me.

Up until now I would use ManageFlitter to grab my Google+ posts and send them to Twitter and then facebook's Twitter app would grab them from there. But as you see in the pic below, that ain't pretty.

Now +Friends+Me sends my posts to both places and formats them very nicely. The posts on facebook look like they were originated there.

Here is why I recommend you give Friends+Me a try:

•  The posts on facebook look MUCH better
•  Friends+Me checks your feed and posts every 5 minutes. ManageFlitter refreshes every 30 minutes unless you pay. That's a big deal when I am covering breaking news or encouraging people to check out a live stream, etc. (Friends+Me plans to have a paid tier in the future which will offer 1 minute refreshes. I'd happily pay for that.)
•  It can post to your timeline and facebook pages
•  It supports Twitter Cards http://goo.gl/CVx3Z

Thanks to Friends+me's developer +Alois Bělaška for urging me to check it out. I have officially made the switch!

And Tesla was holding the camera...
The smartest scientific minds of our planet in ONE picture!

This image is just mind-blowing.  It was originally captured in 1927 at the Solvay Conference, attended by some of the most brilliant scientists in history. Notable attendees included Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Marie Curie, Erwin Schrödinger, Werner Heisenberg, Wolfgang Pauli, Paul Dirac and Louis de Broglie. More than half of the attendees went onto win the Nobel Prize in either Physics or Chemistry. Marie Curie actually won the prize in both fields. She remains the only scientist in history to have done so.

The original picture is black & white but a Swedish female artist successfully colorized it and posted it on reddit where it became an instant classic. Not only that, she's made it available on the internet for free.

This one definitely deserves to be shared further for the world to print and put up as a poster. A more epic gathering cannot be imagined.

Our good fortune is dependent upon the cooperation and contributions of others. Every aspect of our present well-being is due to hard work on the part of others. As we look around us at the buildings we live and work in, the roads we travel, the clothes we wear, or the food we eat, we have to acknowledge that all are provided by others. None of them would exist for us to enjoy and make use of were it not for the kindness of so many people unknown to us.
