Hồ Plitvice, thiên đường là đây

Công viên quốc gia hồ Plitvice có phong cảnh cực kỳ đẹp nằm trong khu vực Lika của Croatia. Công viên được bao quanh bởi các ngọn núi Plješevica , Mala Kapela, và Medveđak, nó cũng chính là một phần của dãy núi Alps Dinaric. Có tất cả 16 hồ với màu xanh lục và xanh dương xen kẻ tại Plitvice, được phân cách bởi các vách đá vôi tự nhiên nằm trên cao nguyên Plitvice. Thác nước kết nối các hồ với nhau. Thác nước cao nhất tại đây có tên là Veliki Slap, có độ cao khoảng 70 mét (230 feet). Các khu vực quanh hồ Plitvice có thể tự hào với một lượng lớn các hệ thực vật phong phú đầy màu sắc và các loài động vật thú vị . Du khách có thể đi bộ theo nhiều con đường mòn và nhân tạo xuyên qua các tán lá cây và hồ nước trong xanh, hoặc khám phá mặt hồ bằng thuyền. Công viên có 3 khách sạn và một khu cắm trại, nếu không thích ở đây du khách có thể lựa chọn nơi nghĩ khác tại các làng mạc và thành phố lân cận.

We are in the middle of our quarterly earnings call right now. Here are the remarks I just gave. One key stat: Over 10M Google+ users!

-Larry
----------
Good afternoon everyone--thanks for joining us today

It’s exciting to be on the call today and to share directly with you the progress we have made in my first quarter as CEO

As you will have seen from our press release we had a great quarter--with revenue up by 32 per cent year on year and a new record for quarterly revenue at over $9 billion!

We have substantially increased our velocity and execution this quarter--a key goal of mine since taking over as CEO

It’s why I created a new, product focused management structure--with a clear leader responsible for each product area

This new management team is working together fabulously … and has already achieved a lot in just three months

First we launched Google+ to field trial invitation only

Our goal with Google+ is to make sharing on the web like sharing in real life, as well as to improve the overall Google experience
Circles let you choose with precision who you are sharing with. Not surprisingly this has been very well received, because in real life, we share different things with different people.
Hangouts allow for serendipitous interactions. Like in real life when you run into a few friends. It gives you seamless and fun multi user video and it’s really amazing!

Last quarter, we launched the +1 button in search results and ads--enabling users to recommend stuff they liked, and have those recommendations show up in the search results of people they know

This quarter, we released +1 buttons to the entire web, and many sites like Huffington Post, the Washington Post and Best Buy have added +1 buttons

Google+ is still only in field trial with limited access as we scale the system
Users have to be invited, sign up with a profile in order to use it

However, the growth on Google+ has been great--and I’m excited to release some new metrics for you today
Over 10M people have joined Google+
Great achievement for the team

There’s also a ton of activity
We are seeing over 1 billion items shared and received in a single day

Our +1 button is already all over the web
It’s being served 2.3 billion times a day

So while we have a lot of work still to do, we are really excited about our progress with Google+

Google+ is also a great example of another focus of mine--beautiful products that are simple and intuitive to use and was actually was one of the first products to contain our new visual redesign.

We also launched that beautiful, consistent and simpler design on our home page, Gmail and calendar with many more products soon to come.

Greater focus has also been another big feature for me this quarter--more wood behind fewer arrows

Last month, for example, we announced that we will be closing Google Health and Google PowerMeter

We’ve also done substantial internal work simplifying and streamlining our product lines

While much of that work has not yet become visible externally, I am very happy with our progress here

Focus and prioritization are crucial given our amazing opportunities

Indeed I see more opportunities for Google today than ever before

Because believe it or not we are still in the very early stages of what we want to do

Even in search … which we’ve been working on for 12 years there have never been more important changes to make
For example this quarter we launched a pilot that shows an author’s name and picture in the search results, making it easier for users to find things from authors they trust.

Of course when we started doing search, people thought we were crazy--they said there was no money to be made in search over and above a bit of banner advertising

Most new internet businesses have had the same criticism

Fast forward to today--it feels like we are watching the same movie again in slow motion

We have tremendous new businesses being viewed as “crazy”
Android
We actually have a new metric to report of 550,000 Android Devices activated a day!
That’s a HUGE number even by Google’s standards
Chrome
It’s the fastest growing browser
With over 160 million users

People rightly ask how we will monetize these businesses?

And of course I understand the need to balance the short term with the longer term needs because our revenues and growth serve as the engine that funds our innovation

But our emerging high usage products can generate huge new businesses for Google in the long run, just like search
And we have tons of experience monetizing successful products over time

Well run technology businesses with tremendous consumer usage make a lot of money over the long term

I think about our products in three separate categories

First, there is search and our ads products, the core driver of revenue for the company. Nikesh and Susan are going to talk more about ads later in the call

Next, we have products that are enjoying high consumer success--YouTube, Android and Chrome. We are investing in these in order to optimize their long-term success

Then we have our new products--Google+ and Commerce and Local. We are are investing in them to drive innovation and adoption

Overall, we are focused on long term absolute profit and growth, as we have always been--and I will continue the tight financial management we have had in the last two years, even as we are making significant investments in our future

I would like to finish on our people

Great companies are no greater than the efforts and ingenuity of their people

So continuing to hire the best, keeping them happy and well rewarded is crucial to our future

Many of you will be interested in hiring--whether we hired a few hundred more or less than you expected this quarter. But we will optimize headcount for the long term and the opportunities we see

So I’m happy with the investments we’ve made in people, though we’re probably even a little ahead of where we need to be with headcount growth at the edge of what is manageable now

It is easy to focus on things we do that are speculative (e.g., driverless cars) but we spend the vast majority of our resources on the core products. We may have a few small speculative projects happening at any given time, but we’re very careful stewards of shareholder money -- we’re not betting the farm on this stuff.

All of us at Google want to create services that people across the world use twice a day … just like a toothbrush!

And we strive to make those services beautiful, simple and easy to use

That way we can provide huge benefit to the world

We have made a good start but we are at only 1 per cent of what’s possible … Google is just getting started … and that is why I am here--working hard to lead this company to the next level
Thank You. And again, we had a great quarter.

Some useful-but-maybe-not-obvious features of Google+:

* In your stream, "Incoming" means "other people who are sharing with me" -- people who aren't yet in your circles. You can browse through it to see people who have added you.

* "Notifications" gives you the same sort of stuff that you can see in the notifications menu in the top right. (The one that turns bright red when you have an update -- not yet available in all countries) Who's added you, when you've been mentioned in a post or tagged in a photo, etc. Also, that menu at the top? Very useful.

* "Sparks" lets you get cool content relevant to your interests. Random side note: While debugging the system, we often used "Chocolate Cake" as a test interest. It turned out to be a really distracting interest.

* Hangouts are more awesome than you may suspect, because they require so little work.

* You have to click on the "Chat with people on Google+" link to enable chat within Google+ (long story as to why), but then you get IM functionality.

* The mobile app has two features of surpassing awesomeness: Huddles and Instant Upload. Huddles are everything that messaging was supposed to be but never was -- group of people, persistent conversations so you can keep chatting with people, a hell of a lot faster delivery than SMS, etc. Instant upload means that you will never have photos stranded on your phone again.

* The delete circle animation is enough fun that one is tempted to create circles and delete them just for the heck of it. Andy Hertzfeld FTW.

I'll probably think of more of these later... there are a lot of features in here, and there are even more on the way. This is called "The Google+ Project" for a reason; the future is bright and exciting.

Congrats! I visited the Kingdom of Tonga in 2005 and loved it. Amazing scenery, especially the blowholes on the coast (http://www.google.com/search?q=tonga%20blowholes&hl=en&prmd=imvns&biw=1280&bih=711&ie=UTF-8&tbo=u&tbm=vid&source=og&sa=N&tab=iv) Rarotonga is ~1000 miles from Tonga, but I have a feeling they share a lot in common. :)

I really had a great experience at this hotel. The location was great -- convenient to the city's core, airport and some of the top tourist spots like Amer Fort, Jaigarh Fort, Hawa Mahal. Beautiful view of Jal Mahal. The staff provided some of the best Indian hospitality -- very warm/welcoming and accommodating. They insisted that I sit down and relax during the check-in process, adorned with a kumkum and with a drink in-hand. I ordered room service on-arrival, as it was very late and it was great. I ate in the restaurant the following night, which was also very good -- it is primarily a buffet with a few different Indian and continental dishes. The price for was more in-line with what you would pay at a hotel in the US or Europe vs. a local restaurant, but the service was very good. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay and would stay at Trident again.

I like the UWS, especially when I feel like staying in a more residential area or when the weather is great for the park. This hotel is centrally located to everything on the UWS, including the park, decent shopping and restaurants and Lincoln Center. The room was fine, not great, but passable. They seemed a little worn, but the lobby was very well appointed, so I always found that disparity a little deceiving. The toilet was broken in my room and started overflowing, incessantly, in the middle of the night and I was not impressed with how the staff handled it at the time. They claimed there were no available rooms for me to switch and it took over an hour for someone to come up and begin to fix the problem and over 1.5 hours to fix it completely. Upon check-in, however, I was impressed with the friendly and efficient staff. And, when I spoke to the manager about the issue in my room, he wanted me to give them another chance, so he said to book the cheapest room next time and I he will comp. me the highest level upgrade available -- so I will plan a return in the spring when I can take advantage of a penthouse suite with a great balcony. Assuming I have a better experience next time, I would consider staying again in the future, for a great price. UPDATE: I came back for my return visit + upgrade. I am staying in a penthouse loft with a wraparound terrace for the week. The room is great, very clean, modern and spacious and the terrace is incredible with views of the river to the west and the city to the east. The staff was also very accommodating and acknowledged/apologized for the issues/inconvenience during my last stay.

This really was a beautiful hotel and the staff was excellent. I stayed in a Deluxe King, which was very large and well-furnished. The bathroom was great -- the only thing that would have made it better was heated floors! Not much else to say -- the property and the staff were on par with what I expect from a Ritz-Carlton!

One of my favorite hotels in NYC. My King Guestroom was decent in size and felt very spacious because of the high ceilings, large windows and glass wall in the bathroom. Very modern, clean and calming environment with sleek furniture and dark hardwoods. Very comfortable bed and high end bathroom with great shower, toiletries and oversized towels. I had a great experience with the staff, from the doorman that greeted me at the street, front desk staff and indirectly with the housekeeping staff. The staff was very friendly and thoughtful, e.g. they came and knocked on my door when I didn't answer my wake-up call. Light refreshments/snacks served in the lobby all day. Also, I'm a big fan of David Burke and really enjoyed this restaurant -- try the bacon-wrapped peanut butter-filled dates!

I spend a lot of time in NYC, but I only recently visited the Empire State Building. Really cool experience -- beautiful building and terrific views of the city. We bought tickets for the main 83rd Floor Observatory as well as the 102nd Floor, but in my opinion, the 102nd Floor wasn't worth it. The 102nd Floor is very small and completely enclosed -- one can't really look down, just out, so it kind of feels like being in any building. The 83rd Floor, however, was great. We visited at night on April 13, hoping to catch the Northern Lights, as a result of the solar flare on April 12. We couldn't see the lights, but at a great experience, all the same. I definitely recommend visiting!

I noticed that nightly rates were lower than usual, across the board, for NYC hotels the week before Christmas, so I did some research on the best high end properties. New York Palace was up near the top and the price was under my company fare cap. The Palace has a very traditional, midtown East feel, but not at the scale of the Waldorf. The staff was fine, but I didn't feel they went out of the way to be friendly. The room was very large, the bed was neither here nor there and my room had a great shower. The E was nearby, which was convenient to get to my office in Chelsea Market. Views of St. Pat's were very beautiful and even inspired me to go to morning mass one day. Not much around this area, by way of fun restaurants, but I really enjoyed Geoffrey Zakarian's new restaurant, The National. Not at the top of my list for a return visit, but mostly because it just isn't my style or favorite neighborhood. But, if you plan to spend a lot of time in midtown, or you just like a traditional hotel, I would definitely recommend the Palace.

I have been Dr. Elia's patient for over 13 years and couldn't ask for a better dentist. Prior to becoming a patient at Kopp Dental, I didn't realize that I was not getting quality dental care. Dr. Elia is extremely personable, gentle and kind, but most importantly thorough! The entire office staff is very welcoming and always make for a pleasant experience. Since leaving the Chicago area eight years ago to live in New York, Texas and now Michigan, I still plan my dental appointments around trips home to see my family.
