Don't forget to stretch

Avoid overexertion when shoveling snow. Overexertion can bring on a heart attack - a major cause of death in the winter. If you must shovel snow, stretch before going outside.

"Ghost town"

This is the kind of disparity I see on a near-daily basis when looking at posts I've shared on Facebook and Google+. 

This is obviously just a random case study and not all variables are equal, but it's an example of what makes me chuckle every time I hear people talking about how Google+ is a "ghost town" that "no one uses" -- when what they really mean is that it's a service they haven't taken the time to explore and find a community within.

If this is a "ghost town," it sure is fun hanging out with all you fellow phantoms.

"If you’re wondering why people are protesting you, how we got to this housing crisis, why rent control exists or why tech is even shifting to San Francisco in the first place, this is meant to provide some common points of understanding."

This piece by +Kim-Mai Cutler is the most thorough and level-headed take I've read so far on the housing challenges facing San Francisco and the Bay Area. No matter where you sit, if you're looking for easy answers, they're not there. It's not even clear there are complicated answers. But Cutler helps describe the history and the facts behind the problem, and that's essential.

It would be great if this essay was required reading for tenants, landlords, protesters, elected officials, and corporate executives alike. They may not begin to agree on a solution, but at least they might better understand the issues.
The Santa Clara Valley was some of the most valuable agricultural land in the entire world, but it was paved over to create today's Silicon Valley. This was..
