How I Feel When I Try to Use a Yoga Ball

Every. Single. Time.

I am going to do some exercising today, a little bit of reading and updating a few articles. This is one I will be updating quite a bit as it relates to getting more views and followers on Google+ for businesses. With a business or local page needing 1000 followers to run Google +Post Ads it is now true that more business pages want engagement and growth: http://wojdylosocialmedia.com/get-followers-google-plus-business/

Next chapter of http://schema.org  announced today
 
Today's news from schema.org
When we launched schema.org almost 3 years ago, our main focus was on providing vocabularies for describing entities --- people, places, movies, restaurants, ... But the Web is not just about static descriptions of entities. ...

+Dan Brickley seems to have triggered, unwillingly I suppose, yet another post-httpRange-14 war episode, starting from :
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-vocabs/2014Apr/0109.html
I tend to agree with the pragmatic view of +Martin Hepp
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-vocabs/2014Apr/0146.html
 +Mike Bergman makes a good point in his answer

The names of things on the Web (URI) will eventually be really efficient when they achieve what makes natural language names efficient, flexibility allowing ambiguity and overloading in certain contexts, and accuracy in other ones. You don't need the accuracy requirements of a lawyer or a scientist in day-to-day conversation when you use words as "culprit" or "weight". But before the court or in a scientific paper you need them.

+Aaron Bradley It sounds like they're already preparing for Web 4.0

Google invents smart contact lens with built-in camera: Superhuman Terminator-like vision here we come

Google has invented a new smart contact lens with an integrated camera. The camera would be very small and sit near the edge of the contact lens so that it doesn’t obscure your vision. By virtue of being part of the contact lens, the camera would naturally follow your gaze, allowing for a huge range of awesome applications, from the basis of a bionic eye system for blind and visually impaired people, through to early warning systems (the camera spots a hazard before your brain does), facial recognition, and superhuman powers (telescopic and infrared/night vision). In related news, Google Glass is publicly available today in the US for one day only (still priced at $1500).

We were desperate for delivery at midnight, and ooof, worse than we thought it might be. The beef in the ginger beef (the few strips in it) seemed like some beef by product, and the soup tasted like onions, salt, and maybe drop or two of dish soap or something. The ridiculously overpriced spring rolls were tiny, soggy, and wrapped in so much saran wrap we could barely get at them. 20 min after eating the meal, and I actually feel ill. Terrible food.

I had what must have been the worst retail experience ever with Layton Audio. I ordered a replacement wire for my Sennheiser headphones, as mine had worn wires near the jacks that fit into the phones. On the way home I noticed that the package had been opened, with the replacement damaged, so I can only assume I was given a returned pair by accident. As soon as I got home I called the store and was told to bring them back for a new pair. I was working night shifts on the other side of town at the time, so told them it might be a week or so before I could show up. The day I showed up, the guy that sold them to me told me it was *impossible* that he gave me the damaged pair. I tried to reason with him, but his condescending attitude and accusations persisted to the point where a yelling match ensued as he retreated to the back office. Who must have been the owner finally came out, and they refunded me, as they didn't have a replacement pair in stock. I left the store with suspicious eyes on me, and no apology. It was a demeaning and undeserved experience.

Delicious, authentic Indian food. Love it. Small menu, tiny place mostly for take-out, but that's its charm. Try the pickled mango from the little containers on the tables if you eat there, it's yum.

I hit up Ruby Rouge a few times a month. It's authentic Chinese food in huge servings for super cheap. The huge banquet hall-type space is frequented by mostly Chinese patrons, often in large groups. As a bonus, the waitresses are polite and know the menus very well. The owners at checkout (an elderly couple) are also very friendly.

I've heard about Segal's for years, and shopped there this week for the first time. Great prices on a good selection of typical goods you'd find in any Portuguese market. If you want to take your time to browse the aisles, don't go during peak shopping hours. Don't look for a 'Segals' sign outside, there's only a big, vertical, red 'Epicerie' sign, the second building south of Cinema L'Amour, on the East side of St-Laurent.

I was there 15 min before closing and the food was still very fresh. Moderate sized servings, and very friendly service. Seems to be run hands-on by a couple, which can make all the difference compared to hired staff.
