Had that issue with Google Play Services using excess battery on my Nexus 6. Tried a few different things but the thing that fixed it for me was reverting Google Play Services back to factory install state then reinstall the updates from the play store. Since doing that it doesn't even appear in the battery usage list.

Shocking fact from WWF’s Living Planet Report shows that populations of land based species, like lions, have declined by 39% since 1970.

You can help protect these precious species and their habitats by joining our Wear it Wild campaign.

GUN POWDER AND OATMEAL



A TOUGH OLD COWBOY FROM TEXAS COUNSELED HIS GRANDDAUGHTER THAT IF SHE WANTED TO LIVE A LONG LIFE, THE SECRET WAS TO SPRINKLE A PINCH OF GUN POWDER ON HER OATMEAL EVERY MORNING.

THE GRANDDAUGHTER DID THIS RELIGIOUSLY UNTIL THE AGE OF 103, WHEN SHE DIED. SHE LEFT BEHIND 14 CHILDREN, 30 GRANDCHILDREN, 45 GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN, 25 GREAT-GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN, AND A 40-FOOT HOLE WHERE THE CREMATORIUM USED TO BE.

Subject: Gunslinger


A young cowboy, sitting in a saloon one Saturday night, recognised an elderly man standing at the bar who, in his day, had been the fastest gun in the West.*

The cowboy walked over to the old-timer, bought him a drink and told him of his great ambition to be a great gunfighter."Could you give me some tips?" he asked.*

The old man said, "Well, for one thing, you're wearing your gun too high -- tie the holster a little lower down on your leg."*

"Will that make me a better gunfighter?"*

"Sure will."*

The young man did as he was told, then stood up, whipped out his .44, and shot the bow tie off the piano player.*

"That's terrific!" exclaimed the cowboy. "Got any more tips?"*

"Yep," said the old man. "Cut a notch out of your holster where the hammer hits it -- that’ll give you a smoother draw."*

"Will that make me a better gunfighter?" asked the young man.*

"You bet it will," said the old-timer.*

The young man took out his knife, cut the notch, stood up, drew his gun in a blur, and then shot a cuff link off the piano player.*

"Wow!" said the cowboy excitedly, "I'm learnin' somethin' here. Got any more tips?"*

The old man pointed to a large can in a corner of the saloon. "See that can of axle grease over there? Coat your gun with it."*

The young man smeared some of the grease on the barrel of his gun.*

"No," said the old-timer, "I mean smear it all over the gun, the handle, and all."*


"Will that make me a better gunfighter?" asked the puzzled young man.*


"No," said the old-timer, "but when Wyatt Earp gets done playing the piano, he's gonna shove that gun up your ass, and it won't hurt as much."

OK then....
Earlier this year, an Italian surgeon announced that he’ll be attempting the world’s first human head transplant, that despite the hurdles, a human head may actually be attached onto another person’s body in two years. This week, a donor was introduced, but according to at least one expert, this man might be facing something that’s “worse than death.”

So I was thinking the #Android 5.1 #update had caused a battery drain issue. It was showing up as google play services to be draining more juice than usual. On having a poke around I discovered the update has turned location services to high accuracy. I turned that down and so far today it is looking more like normal battery consumption.

So I'm not sure if there is a bug that this turns itself back on or if it was just the update that did it. I'm not sure but I could have sworn I already turned the location services down to battery saving mode before.

Have to keep eye on it to see if it happens again...
