I am very sad to hear +Uwe Duwe passed away. He was one of my inspirations with his wonderful self portraits, his bokehlicios still lifes, his #ohrwurmmondays and his generous and humorous nature. You will be missed!
(And in a way I still hope this is a big misunderstanding and he will show up with a selfie, holding a smoking a cigarette between his fingers, just shaking his head.)

looks like we have lost the last of the free speech stations , Judge Pirro was not on her usual spot on Saturday night ,and FOX is not making statements on the incident . but if the station is going to censor their anchors then America has lost a good friend.
And this crap of not being able to voice your opinion is a real blow to Free Speech , let fox know what you think on this subject

Jenolan Cascade Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve
Celebration: countdown 9

I will tell you our story again, one last time, as you lay on this old bed. Stay with me. Stop it twisting away from me.

My Great Grandparents rode down the cliffs on horse. My grandparents followed a decade later. After exploring the caves, they left the horses behind and trekked to the Blue Lake and then to these cascades to swim under the waterfall.

More images: www.silenttheory.net

The remote Cave House back at the caves has not entered either of the last two centuries with any enthusiasm. If you visit and stay (and you should) you will enjoy all the spartan comforts of cold war era tourism under paintings of the wives of bygone Governors of the Colony. In the smoking lounge you will sit in the company of the ghosts of those who dined here before leaving for the Great War. The food will be wholesome and you will fall in love and when you leave here, your life will never be the same.

Image: A panorama of 5 shots, hand focused, and toned for structure (the underlying rock has interesting tones and patterns, showing some signs of tool sharpening, patterned so as to evoke a hexagonal pattern in water spray from certain view points).

Celebrate: Thank you. To celebrate what we all achieved on G+, i am publishing the 50 most viewed posts in this collection (with 450 million views) until shutdown. This is an unreprocessed image of this fall (9th most viewed).

Something is Pushing the Milky Way Through the Universe at 1.2 million mph

You can’t feel it, but our planet is orbiting the Sun at speeds of roughly 100,000 km/h (62,000 mph), and something is making our Milky Way galaxy move through the Universe at more than 2 million km/h (1.2 million mph).

Read here: https://www.sciencealert.com/an-unexplained-void-is-pushing-the-milky-way-through-the-universe-at-2-million-km-h

The research has been published in Nature Astronomy.

MeWe Google+ Importer is live (but it's not clear how exactly it works)

I read through their instructions for exporting your Google+ data and importing into MeWe and the good news is that it seems very easy to do. However, I have a few questions about how it works exactly which I'd like to see answered before trying it.

1. The instructions say to include your Google+ Circles data in your Google Takeout archive. It's not clear what MeWe uses this data for.

2. The instructions say to include our Google+ Communities data in your archive. Since the Google+ Communities Takeout archive now includes all posts in the public Communities you own or moderate by default (unless you de-select them), it's not clear to me what MeWe does with those. Do they all get imported as posts on your own MeWe profile? I hope not.

3. The process looks like it happens in two steps. The first step is that you upload the Google Takeout archive zip files to MeWe, and then from those MeWe imports your public posts. But I'd like to know what happens then to the zip files you uploaded that may include private posts as well (I know mine does).

4. Free MeWe accounts offer 8GB storage. If your images use more storage space than that, you will need to pay $4.99/month for 50GB storage. So what happens if your Google+ archive has more than 8GB of photos? Does it only work to import if you have already paid for more storage?

I'd be happy to hear from anyone who knows the answers or can share their own experience.

Announcement on Twitter (since MeWe posts aren't public):

My questions to MeWe on Twitter:
https://twitter.com/PeggyKTC/status/1106791867285274624

And I do have a MeWe profile, but I haven't posted anything yet and I'm not sure how much I'll use it:

Against the backdrop of a worsening international economic environment, #China needs to find solutions as soon as possible in case more Western countries unite against it on some major economic issues. The country should pay attention to deepening bilateral relations with important economic and trade partners by building a more comprehensive and high-standard free trade network. And the #UK could be one of the developed countries with which China could strengthen economic cooperation in a new round of changes to the international economic order.

As the fifth-largest global economy, and the second-largest economy in the EU, the UK is an important window for China to deepen cooperation with the Western world. Beijing can consider a China-UK #freetradearea (FTA) as a model for deals with other #developedcountries. For the UK, the inking a China-UK FTA would help reduce #postBrexit uncertainties by offsetting some of the negative impacts. For China, an #FTA with the UK will allow it to explore development space under the pressure of the US-China trade war, facilitating domestic industrial upgrading and propelling domestic reforms in environmental protection, IPR protection and other aspects. Therefore, a China-UK FTA will be of great practical significance.

Donald #Trump issued the first veto of his presidency Friday afternoon (Mar 15), rejecting a congressional resolution that would have blocked him from funding his border wall without congressional approval. The president's veto comes a day after 12 Republicans joined Senate Democrats to rebuke the president’s decision to declare a #nationalemergency last month in order to redirect funds to build a wall on the southern border.

The resolution was a stunning bipartisan rebuke to Trump, but lawmakers currently do not have the votes to overturn his veto. The emergency declaration has proved a conundrum for #GOP lawmakers torn between supporting his border security efforts and asserting Congress’ power to allocate federal funds. Neither chamber mustered the support for the resolution necessary to override a presidential veto, which requires two-thirds of the vote in both chambers. Still, the House is expected to vote on March 26 to try to override the veto.

#Italy's government has split over whether to sign onto #China’s landmark ' #OneBeltOneRoad' infrastructure program that runs across #Asia to key European trade hubs. Some 13 #EU countries have signed up to China's new Silk Road plan, but Washington and Brussels are deeply concerned that the involvement of #G7 heavyweight Rome could lend greater credibility to a project that they view as a strategic threat.

Prime Minister #GiuseppeConte and #LuigiDiMaio of the 5Star Movement, one of two deputy prime ministers, said a proposed agreement with Beijing - which would not amount to an international treaty - would not undermine Italy's alliances with the U.S. and the EU. The Italian and Chinese governments are also in the process of negotiating 31 additional MoUs, 16 of which would be signed by the Chinese government and 15 involving businesses. Each MoU spells out details of the framework in each area of cooperation.
