Google thinking of ranking sites by "truthfulness"... 
 
Blogged: And you thought Google couldn’t get any worse  http://www.rba.co.uk/wordpress/2015/03/02/and-you-thought-google-couldnt-get-any-worse/
We've all come across examples of how Google can get things wrong: incorrect supermarket opening hours (http://www.rba.co.uk/wordpress/2015/01/02/google-gets-it-wrong-again/), false information and dubious sources used in Quick Answers ...

Cartoon from today's class announcements. So much fun I had to share it again here. :-)
Today is Wednesday of WEEK 14. If you have not turned in your Week 13 Storybook/Portfolio assignment yet, you may still do that for partial credit, and Wednesday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you did not finish ...

Substance for the Google+ carve up rumours: 
 
Just wanted to confirm that the rumors are true -- I’m excited to be running Google’s Photos and Streams products!  It’s important to me that these changes are properly understood to be positive improvements to both our products and how they reach users.

G+ General Help  - 
 
When I try to invite people to my Google+ Community I get a message saying "Your post was not shared. Please try again." No amount of trying again will fix it. 

I was able to invite people without a problem yesterday. Same account, same community, same browser. Can you help?

Thanks Kandi. I've found two possible explanations: 
1. Some kind of spam prevention policy if you seem to be inviting people repeatedly or very often. 
2. The people you're inviting don't have Google+ accounts.

When I invite someone I know has a G+ account, it works fine, so maybe it's 2. The error message you get doesn't help at all I'm afraid.

If you could pass on their email, that would be really useful. I didn't think there was one!

God alone knows why Blackboard leaves html tags in its downloads of quiz answers. Surprisingly easy to fix in Excel though:
