Keep an eye on this.  You are watching Backroom Politics at its finest.  Currently the USA government is trading Ukraine's freedom for the EU natural gas business.

For those of you who are completely lost by the above statement follow closely below. 

- Back in the last open election, Ukraine elected a new president that was a large supporter of creating closer ties to the west. If you ask Russia or most Ukrainians they will tell you that election was influenced largely by huge campaign donations from westerner countries (the USA included). 

- In late 2012 or early spring of 2013 a "mysterious" plane crash that was returning from Russia to Ukraine killed the president of Ukraine.  Most people will tell you this plane was intentionally crashed (shot down blown up etc.) by Russia to to kill the pro west Ukraine president

- In late spring or early summer 2013 a new leader of Ukraine was put into office who was more in line with continuing the countries partnership with Russia. 

- this of course pissed off both the USA and the EU.  So the USA government started working on creating a uprising in Ukraine, pumping money and media support to the protesters in Ukraine's capital. 

- In the late fall of 2013 the pro Russia president of Ukraine was removed from office. this pissed off Russia who felt threatened by the western influence of the only country that allows them to have a warm weather sea port. Crimea.

- Russia immediately acted to defend its nations "most important port" by invading Ukraine to take it back.  Russia was thinking of this as an attack and an attempt to weaken its ability to do commerce and have access to the the western seas. 

- the EU immediately started economic sanctions on Russia, but what neither the EU or Russia realized is that both had just fallen perfectly into the USA trap. 

- with the EU trying to cut ties with Russia they needed a new source for natural gas, which powers and heats most of the continent. 

- In steps the USA who just happens to have a HUGE surplus of natural gas they have been stockpiling from all of the fracking over the last 3 years. 

- Now the USA is holding both over the head of Russia.  Basically they are requiring Russia either give back Crimea to Ukraine and let Ukraine join the EU, or the EU will take all of its Natural Gas business to the USA.

- Neither option is good for Russia its basically a lose lose for them.  If they give up Crimea they will no longer have any way to put naval ships in the Mediterranean in the winter which is a huge military blow, or they have to give up selling natural gas to the EU, which is hundreds of billions of dollars in economy for them.  

As of now, it looks like Russia cut a deal with the USA, and said you can have the natural gas business if we can take the entire country of Ukraine. 
David Frum says Russia is on a rampage of mischief while Western leaders and Western alliances charged with keeping the peace hem and haw.

They told me my iPhone was more secure than Android.  He was a labeled as a "Genius"  why shouldn't I believe him?

And I quote: 

“Either [the NSA] have a huge collection of exploits that work against Apple products, meaning they are hoarding information about critical systems that American companies produce, and sabotaging them, or Apple sabotaged it themselves,”

Time to throw your iPhone in the Garbage and pick up an Android people.  Apple has not only been ripping you off it has also been violating your rights.

Let's see if we can help this guy reach his goal. 1000 G+ followers seems like something we can help him reach.
 
The Google Plus K1 Challenge: 31 Days, 526 Circles, 1 Challenge is on!

So, a few days ago I set a challenge for myself to make 1,000 connections here on #GooglePlus before 2014 rolls around.. My new blog post - http://robertryan.ie/the-google-plus-k1-challenge/ - formalises the challenge (as much as any blog post can) and also outlines how I'm going to achieve my goal here on Google Plus..

The tips and things I'm going to focus on to try achieve my goal, and that you can use too to help you are:

1) Story Telling - I want you to know why I'm worth circling, if I don't tell you some of my story you'll never know why I'm worth the circle. In a nutshell I'm online geek with an interesting sense of humour and a new found online chattiness - come say hi!

2) Pinterest - I'm taking a leaf out of +Peg Fitzpatrick s book and embracing the Pin, so, please, pin this for your future consumption http://www.pinterest.com/pin/415527503090628534/

3) Communities - I'm big time grateful to +Emmett Smith and his hand holding of me to help get me going in the +SEO community, I've already found communities helpful on many levels and am kicking myself for not embracing them before.

4)  Say Hi - now is not the time for shyness. When people start to circle me know I sure to check them out and where possible  to give them a personalised "howdy do neighbour" and thank them for the circle. Some of you who circled me recently may have experienced this, hope it was pain free for you ;)

5) Cross Pollinate - I recently read a post from +Daniel Sharkov on cross pollinating and promoting G+ on your other social networks and vice versa. Like most things in life the simplest ideas are often best and this is one thing I'll be doing a lot more of.

6) HOA - I've been watching from the sidelines, in awe of the likes of +Eric Enge , +Craig Chamberlin & +David Amerland as they have regular hang outs and figured I could possibly contribute something to Google Plus. Mark my words, before the New Year is hear I'll have made my G+ silver screen debut ;)

7) Free Info - You give out the good stuff then the good stuff will come back to you - karma or whatever I guess..but, it is big time true here. My post about onsite SEO has gotten more Google + love than pretty much all of my other posts combined which has been eye opening. I think combining free info with HOA could be a dream ticket so stay tuned and if you're interested in a HOA with me then get in touch!!

Make sure to check out http://robertryan.ie/the-google-plus-k1-challenge/ as I expand on each of the above and link to some great resources..

So, question for you - do you think I'll achieve my challenge?
