SUMMARY:
No more lost planes? ADS-B offers much more accurate tracking of airplanes compared to radar — yes, even over water. It awaits certification but has already been mandated for use in the U.S. by 2020.

+Brian Koberlein : Sunrise, Sunset

Yesterday on Reddit, a user named SipTime posted two images.  One of sunrise in Florida, and another of sunset in Japan.  The two photos were taken within minutes of each other. Sunrise and sunset at the same time.

Since we live on a small rocky sphere, this happens all the time. While the sun rises on one end of the planet, it sets on the other.  Between these two points it is either noon or midnight.  As the Earth turns, we move in and out of the shadow of our world. The Sun appears to rise and set as the Earth rotates upon its axis.

Of course we know that both are the same Sun.  Since the Sun is about 150 million kilometers away, the light must travel for more than 8 minutes to reach us.  All that distance and time, just to reach Earth.  If it had traveled in a slightly different direction, it would have missed the Earth entirely. The Earth is only 12,700 kilometers wide, so the light of sunrise and sunset left the Sun in almost the same direction. A difference in direction of only 0.4% of a degree (18 seconds of arc) is enough to separated morning sunlight from evening.

So not only are these the same Sun, they are almost the same light.

We live on a small rock racing through space.  And our days are marked by the rising and setting of a star.

A emergency room surgeon explains how +Google Glass helped him save a patient's life. So in the end, we're left with a choice between looking up at a person wearing Google Glass or dying. Toss up.

+Eric Enge : Forrester Study Reinforces Strong Engagement on Google Plus

This one shows G+ just barely behind Facebook, and far ahead of Twitter.  Everything I hear and see just makes me so happy that I finally jumped on the Plus in July 2013.

Consider also the events at Social Media Marketing World, where the opening keynote speaker, +Michael Stelzner of Social Media Example talked about this being the year of Google Plus.  *It's coming folks!*

You can see more discussion about this in the +Social Media Hangout we did yesterday afternoon: https://plus.google.com/events/c5jqf6at1c7m9dkmkv7anbq5p7k.  I don't have the exact time stamp but the coverage of SMMW starts at about 40 minutes in the video.

Here’s more evidence that smart marketers shouldn’t neglect to include Google+ in their social media mix: Google+ generates nearly as much engagement per follower as Facebook and nearly twice as much as Twitter. The surprising results come from a Forrester Research study of the social profiles of 50 global brands on Facebook, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn, […]
