This is not the central valley / delta I remember as a kid, lots of water then crops everywhere.  This is so sad
Photographer Matt Black has spent 20 years photographing his home region—California's Central Valley-as drought ravages the once fertile land of his childhood.

Yikes! I didn't realize it was that bad in the central valley.

Hello, I'm working with a physician.  When I search for 'her name md google plus" the first hit is an unclaimed google plus page in a city from which she moved (no longer at this address / city).  There is another google plus page with her name, md that shows her correct address.  There is a third google plus page that lists the former name of her practice (her current city name OB/GYN) which was her business name for the last few years. 

She no longer wants to use the practice name online (city name OB/GYN) and rather be know by "her name MD".

We have three entries.  The old city pops up first in search for her google plus page, that one should be deleted

The other two google plus pages show the current location, one with her name and one with her practice name that she no longer wishes to use. 

How do we get this down to one google plus page for her using her name, MD (Mary Jones, MD) as the google plus name page? 

Thanks!

It sounds like your client has got into a bit of a mess with local/places pages and may benefit from more specialist support than is available here.

Direct support is available for managing local/places pages by contacting the places team via the contact us button on their support page - https://support.google.com/places 
or alternatively you may seek advice from the experts in the Google and your Business forum: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/business 

If posting to the forum, its advised you provided the appropriate links to each of these pages. Phone support from the places/local team may only be available to your client.

I'm helping a friend with her G+ page for her business however there are two separate G+ pages floating around out there for her business, one I believe set up by the person who set up her web page, the other possibly attached to her personal Google ID.  Is there a guide to show how to help determine what account a particular Google+  business page is assigned to?  specifically if we were to attempt a password reset how do we know what G+ account a particular page was created by? Sorry for the disjointed question but I'm not sure exactly how to ask my question.   My friend - business owner - has zero clue what I'm even talking about, doesn't know what Google+ is, no password records, etc..   Can we just wipe out the old pages and start over?   THANKS

+Nick Carlson +Vanessa Leota The only reason would be in the case of a business with branches. Business page for Central and Local pages for branches.
Maintain a local page with the same direction that a business page is a violation of the rules of Google+

Your first link is to a local page without social options, so probably was automatically created from the data in Google Maps.
The most sensible option is to claim ownership of that business, but it is not the first time I find that clicking the button "Manage this page" are problems, because instead of the option to request PIN what appears is a map where you have to find your business, but usually it is impossible. Could also be that the business has already been verified previously (by an employee or an owner that do not remember)

In these cases there is the option of using a small link under "Manage this page" that says "Report a problem" and it should take you to:
https://support.google.com/business/contact/business_ownership_request
Good Luck!
(and sorry for my english, there are few opportunities to practice in Spain)

Genius!  Freaking genius!
Saw a bit on Reddit this morning.  Apparently George R.R. Martin has been inspired by Breaking Bad to create an even MORE evil character.

Dumping Chrome due to its memory hogging antics, not sure what that's all about but other mac users have experienced the same thing.  Went back to Firefox and although I assumed I knew everything there is to know about everything, I learned so much from this little tutorial.  PINNED TABS!!! get outta here...    #firefox

I'm not giving up my Chrome!
Though maybe I should start to monitor mem usage on my home systems since they're woefully under powered.

Hello! I'm working with a physician, we have verified her listing in google places (that listing appears on google Maps) however the only google+ page I find for her practice appears different (her name appears differently, street address)  than on the newly claimed Places/maps page.   If I have a claimed places site would that create a G+ page?  OR can I somehow tie the existing G+ page (which says it's unclaimed) to that newly claimed Places account?   Thanks

There should be a prompt in the Places Dashboard. I have a link somewhere, I'd have to dig it up. on mobile now though. You can probably find it on that link +John R. Ellis referenced earlier in this thread.

The Studiopress Executive or Agency theme would work well. I am using the Executive theme for this site:  http://mywholelifehealthcare.com
