Just removed three pages from my circles because I got tired of trying to join the conversations people were having on them only to find that I couldn't. What's the point of following a page that you can't even interact with?

For a social network, a lot of people are unsocial.  I don't see the point.

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted on this community! Sorry folks.  Great to see it has 37 members. I'd love to hear from you.  I'll try to keep a closer eye on this community in future.  There's almost too many communities on G+ now to keep track of all the ones that you join huh?

Speaking of G+ communities, I'm curious about what makes some so much more active than others. Some of the ones I'm a member of have tons of activity while others sit almost empty or if there are posts, hardly anyone replies to them or plusses them.

What do you think the secret is to an active community?

So many movies on Netflix some good, some not so good.  - 
 
I wish the preferences settings on the website worked. Why does Netflix even ask what genres, ratings, film subjects we want to see, and even more importantly, the ones we want to avoid in the first place if they still suggest ones that aren't in such categories on the account? 

I had to start a new, second account and tell Netflix it was for kids under 13 to have a screen that didn't list movies and TV shows with 'adult' and 'mature' stuff in it.

This is a review of World War II in Colour that I tried to post on the Netflix website but was unable to for some reason.


  This streaming service has become one of the best places to find quality documentaries today. World War II in Colour is a fine example of this.  It is lengthy, with 13 episodes each one being 51 minutes. That's nearly 13 hours of information about one of the most pivotal wars in world history.  

That great length enables the filmmakers to tell a much more detailed and comprehensive story of the war from all sides of the conflict.  I have seen many, many documentaries and have read many books on this subject. I even wrote my high school senior thesis on the events at Pearl Harbor, so I know a fair amount about these pages of history.  Of all the documentaries I've seen, this series is the best at giving an understandable overview of the conflicts.  

It covers aspects of the war that one may know little about, perhaps may even be hearing for the first time.  For example, did you know that many countries besides just Germany, Italy and Japan, were heavily influenced by fascist politicians before the war?  Conflicts between fascists and communists or other similar groups were going on violently in places like Spain and more of a war of words in places like the United States.  Also that during the war, Japan invade China fighting many campaigns that were just a brutal as what the Nazis were doing in Europe.

The imagery in this series is quite stunning. They have taken footage from all sides and have edited it together to illustrate what the narrator is saying.  This footage has been expertly colorized and enhanced considerably.  It's amazing to think that some of this footage is over eight decades old.  Color brings out details and makes the scenes come alive in ways that black and white can't quite do.  This is all actual footage. No reenactments or animated scenes like you see in many other documentaries.  They do include detailed maps that show movements of troops to help you keep track of where you are in the world during different parts of the war though.  

The music is stirring and fits what is happening on the screen. It is not overbearing and doesn't prevent one from understanding the narrator though.  The narrator is quite easy to understand.  He clearly has a passion for history that comes through in his voice.  It's not in the least bit boring to listen to, even if you are not looking at the screen for a moment.    They don't rely on the current fad of interrupting the narration constantly with little snippets of interviews with different people. This is an 'old school' documentary.

Social Media word of the day: Hotlinkophobia: the extreme reluctance to click on a hot link, or anything that will redirect you away from the page you are currently looking at for fear that when you are done looking at the site that it will take you to, you'll be sent back to the top of your social network feed and you'll have to scroll like mad to get back to where you were. The further one gets into a session of looking at the network (FB, G+, Twitter, etc.) the stronger this phobia becomes.

That's why I always right click on the link first, and select "Open link in a new tab," so that I don't lose my place on G+.

What's new with you? Google+ asks.  Today, what's new is that I'm fed up with seeing community posts that I can't reply to. Why am I even seeing them if I can't join in the conversation?  I go to the page by clicking on the name and can see that I'm following it and that I have the person running the community in my circles, but I still can't reply.  That's a frustrating thing that you don't run into on Face Book.

So true!  One of the most important improvement projects you'll ever do that no one will notice when they look around.  Will save you a lot of money and will be good for the environment as your home or office will use less resources to keep people comfortable.

I wonder if Iowa fans muted their tvs after the 1st quarter. I got really sick of the Christian McCaffery Show especially the cheerleading for him by the allegedly unbiased commentators.

Don't force your employees to work collaboratively on everything. Some problems need 'deep work' as this article discusses. There are hidden costs to this trend of open offices and far too frequent group meetings.
 
Working hard doesn't actually mean anyone is getting anything done.
Do you feel like productivity in your office is dropping? Read this.

Just enough letters there for our minds to infer the rest of the words.  This is a good illustration of why it is so difficult to proof-read papers, especially ones you've written.  Your mind figures out what the word probably should be, even if it is really messed up.

Introduction
         
         
         
I took Ornamental Horticulture classes at CSN in Las Vegas. Before that, I was a Rangeland Management Specialist with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service for five years.  I consulted with landowners, designed conservation plans, specified work to be done and supervised the work in all sorts of projects from erosion control to tree plantings to wildlife habitat enhancement to wetland restoration and more on cropland, grassland, woodland, and even rural landscaping around buildings.   Planning on having a unique interior/exterior design and landscaping business someday. I also have a lot of experience with writing, editing, blogging, consulting and repairing computers.  I've also worked in retail recovering store rooms and sales floors as well as in recommending the products and services to customers that actually met their wants and needs rather than whatever the stores were currently pushing.  Some of my managers didn't like it, but some of them came around when they saw how much the customers loved me and were starting to ask for me by name when they came back to the store.

Update!  I am graduating from CSN this year (2015) with a Certificate of Achievement in Ornamental Horticulture with a focus on Landscape Management.  The landscaping business I thought of is developing into a holistic, Earth friendly, whole property improvement and maintenance business.  God's always led me to help other people, and this is the best way I can do it with the education and experiences He's led me through.

My wife have recently been to Bighorn Law's office in what we like to call 'Real Las Vegas'. This office is not in one of the McMansion populated, planned, fake communities on the edge of town like a lot of law offices are. This one is located on the North end of Eastern in a little strip mall next to a smoke shop and a bail bonds office. It's a bit like the TARDIS on Doctor Who as it looks tiny from the outside and in the waiting room, but once you are invited back, it seems to go on and on. There are more rooms inside for offices and meetings than you'd think there could be. It is nothing fancy and has a 'just moved in' feel to it, but it seems to have everything that is necessary. I like that about it. It's not ostentatious like many law offices are and I hope they keep it that way. They did have some fairly nice leather couches in the waiting room and decent office chairs in the lawyer's office that we went into, but that was about the limit of the fanciness. The best thing about visiting this office was the people who work there. The receptionist and Yvette, the office manager, were very welcoming and made us feel at ease, offering us a choice of drinks and snacks and chatting with us as if we were over at their house for a visit. We talked with Daniel, one of the lawyers in the firm who was working on our case. He really seemed to know his business and was professional while at the same time did a great job of being friendly and a bit comforting in a way. He knew we were nervous and set our minds at ease, answering our questions and explaining the whole process. He had a way of helping us remember what we needed to for the case that made us relax rather than get upset. It was as if we were chatting about some movie we had seen that he hadn't yet. I hope you never need an attorney as the reasons why usually aren't any fun at all, but if you do, I hope you wind up working with these guys at this office.

Nine years ago, my wife had back trouble and started looking for a chiropractor. We had just moved to Vegas and weren't sure where to go. She drove by Dr. Cohen's office (back when they were up on Eastern North of Flamingo) and decided to give him a try. We've been getting adjustments from him ever since. I've had scoliosis since I was in High School and he's really improved it. My lower back pain is so much less now. We've also been involved in a couple of auto accidents since we've moved here and each time, he's helped us recover so much better from those wrecks than we would have without him. The supplements he recommends for virus infections, inflammation etc. really work too. He even takes Teacher's Health Trust for the chiropractic adjustments which is a real plus. Not every doctor in town does.
