Love this!
 
If you look at the stats for every major social network (besides LinkedIN) there are actually more women users than men. Maybe women aren't signing up for Google+ because they thought it was a site for plus size women? Maybe the nerd quotient was too strong? But we all know that girls secretly love nerds. Are these jokes misogynistic? Here's an interesting take on the issue of women on G+: http://bit.ly/rtveIT

A lot of humor tends to "put someone down" (and I'm not a fan of that). +M. M. Faulkner argues that these jokes would make women think they're not welcome on Google+. In particular she talks about Farmville jokes: people are joking that women will only come if there are casual games to play here on G+ and this paints women in a "silly" light. I don't consider gaming silly. "Play" is one of the most important parts of life. And more power to anyone who knows that playful spirit is important.

I appreciate her article. It made me think. But whatever the case, I don't think this male/female ratio will stay the same very long, and I doubt the statistics are even accurate. Google+ does not belong to men. As the .GIF illustrates, try to take something from a lady that's not yours, and you will pay the price!

Luckily, my students are all NYS alternate assessment so I don't have to spend my time prepping for tests.

This was a very interesting article Andy.  I think it's great what the Gates foundation has been able to accomplish in India, but I was stuck on one part of this article in particular:  
      "India’s experience carries lessons for developing and newly    industrialized countries around the world. It proves that success can be achieved – against polio and other diseases, as well – even in the most challenging circumstances."

I just don't know about that comment.  I hate to get really political here, but I'm skeptical about that comment because I don't think anywhere on this planet suffers from any more "challenging circumstances" than Haiti.  I wish I could see a turnaround like this in Haiti too.  I guess Haiti is NOT considered a developing or newly industrialized country.  Maybe that's the point here. 

sigh  I continue to pray for Haiti.  OK!!!  Off the soap box.  On to Goolge Tools!

Thanks for sharing.

After going Google Crazy we have to remember why Google became so popular in the first place. There was Yahoo, Alta Vista, whatever Microsoft put out there, that lottery search engine!  The thing that made Google great was the Search.  Try to use the search in all the apps, searching calendars, searching documents, searching emails, etc...   It makes it so easy to find things.  Microsoft did a pretty nice job copying google in their Windows 7 operating system.

They offer, I believe it is called Lego University, it is a lego build on Wednesday's and thursday from 5-7. Brett was the worker there and he was funny and nice. I believe he was dancing at one point too. As my 7-year-old son just said, "write it was a very good night, we had lots of fun". There is something special about the builds they have- they let you start a build and keep it going. If you were looking for something to do I strongly suggest you give it a try. It works for the beginning builder as well as the expert builder, and there really is no age limit. I would say anyone over 4 years old would enjoy. Both owners are cool and love kids.

Dude, my wife loves this store! I went for Christmas one year and they messed up my order on lobsters. They gave me FREE Filot! I was so psyched! I came home and the family was amazed. I really like the customer service there. OLD SCHOOL!

Just had to share my experience with Mercedez of Nanuet, it is under new ownership as of 2011. I had a ML350 2006 and I was always happy with the experience. So I came back to get a new ML350 2011 (slightly boring of me but I like the room and the way it drives; at least I changed the color from silver to black). So when I purchased the car it was considered used because it had 800 miles on it. My salesman told me that I had a maintenance agreement, however at 10,000 miles when I went in for service I was told that my service agreement began and ended the same day I purchased the vehicle. So, as you can imagine I was upset - I got an email in September from Mercedes asking me why I haven't used my pre-paid Maintenance? I showed it to the OWNER-he REIMBURSED ME FOR THE PRIOR PAID SERVICE! HE GAVE ME 2 FREE SERVICES AND CAME TO MY HOUSE WITH GIFTS!!!! Do you want to experience old school customer service above and beyond your expectations and drive a high-end car with breaking edge technology and safety? Do yourself a favor and get over to Mercedes Benz of Nanuet! The people there are great, the service is top-notch and the owner is too good to be true!
