Jess + Scott + You264Hangouts are an extension of your message. The structure, flow, conversation...all contribute to the experience of guests and viewers. No matter your technical prowess, charming personality or depth of knowledge, you risk your Hangout on Air simply falling apart if you neglect one important component: your script.  A script is but one link in a chain, but you know the old say “A chain is only as strong as it’s weakest link.” So how strong is your HOA chain? *Five reasons you’ll want to watch:*1. Find out a simple fourteen word definition of a script2. Learn the six types of scripts Jess and Scott believe are mostappropriate for HOAs.3. When is it okay to not have a script?4. When should you go “off script”?5. What’s the inseparable relationship between a great script and spontaneity?And, here’s a bonus:Is what you visually present and share supportive and relevant to the hangout? Let’s explore the concept of practice, scripted, and unscripted and see where it goes….Starting with a successful script is exactly the same thing that makes for a successful HOA.GUEST: Jason T. WiserThere is no one on the web who can pack more great information into a half hour HOA than Get on Track, Stay on Track's +Jason T. Wiser  http://ontracktips.com/.  We are therefore delighted and honored to have him as our very special guest. He’ll reveal his secrets as to how he scripts his shows, and lessons learned when he purposefully went commando, that is to say unscripted. Plus Jason will update us as to the current situation in the Ukraine, his reasons for leaving the country and where do we go from here.YOU (the Y in JSY) take action that matters.

Gregg Lantz2,962Tomorrow is a taxing day here in the United States. You get to decide if you want to buy Glass (sorry IRS). If you're not sure and would like to know what others are saying, add this circle.  You'll be able to look at public posts from people that use Glass and people that purchased Glass and put it on the shelf while software was being developed. You'll get both sides of the story. Hopefully this circle will help make the decision process a little easier. Don't forget to post your questions with #askanexplorer  so  people can chime in and help answer your questions. #glassexplorers   #throughglass   #sharedcircles   #circleshare   #wearables   #wearabletech   #glasswaiters  2014-04-14 21:08:59425105CC G+

Keith Barrett489,736LAST SHARE - My Circle of Google Glass OwnersThis is my circle of Google Glass owners and soon-to-be owners because of the +Project Glass  #ifihadglass  program. I created this circle to help people connect and to start your own circles. I've finished processing all my Google+ search results . Now that it has reached 200 people it's time for others to take over. This is the last time I plan to post it.I didn't want to have a circle where a large number have no intention of owning Google Glass, so I did not add people solely because they received an invite. They had to have expressed followup excitement, commitment plans, or otherwise spoken up after being invited. If you're not in it it may be because I could not verify your invitation, or your submission didn't look serious and you haven't said anything about it since. If you're in the circle and do not intend to purchase the Google Glass product please let me know.Thanks, Keith #glassexplorers   cc: +CircleCount 2013-04-09 07:30:4420216112CC G+

I would like to grow the Toastmasters circle, connect with more of you and perhaps integrate Hangouts into our toastmaster activities.  For example, if you need a couple more speeches to get that coveted designation, and would like to try a different venue, how about doing it via a Hangout!  Or if you want to practice a speech and get feedback from other Toastmasters we can hold a speech giving and evaluating hangout.  Sounds like fun doesn't it!2012-09-24 22:20:50169604CC G+
Trever McGhee12,222+Take2seconds  to click the share button...the add buttonI did, this is an amazing circle of Public Speakers that +Kate Manser  created.I love her idea finding all the Public Speakers here on Google and putting them in one circle for people to easily find and connect to. Through out your life you're going to be attracted to one or more Public Speakers that will not only inspire you but give you the drive an energy to achieve your goals faster than you thought was possible.If you know of anyone not in the circle or if you're interested in becoming one please leave a comment because everyone is a Public Speaker when you come from the heart...with passion of what you're talking about and you don't have to stand on a stage to do it. It can be done from anywhere and why not here on Google+ so tag your post, video, picture with the hashtag #PublicSpeaking    as suggested by +Kate Manser . I fully support her mission to get everyone who has a Public Speaking tip to share it freely with the hashtag #PublicSpeaking  so that everyone benefits from it.Including me, I never do the same talk twice....for I'm constantly growing and learning new ways to motivate people, to connect on a one on one bases even in a room full of 5000 people, to pass these tools on to new & old leaders. The needs / the energy of every single person is unique in their own way that changes with every situation through out their life..compounded by the environment they live in... that is also forever changing and growing in different directions.It's that unique energy of each person that's so incredible...it becomes phenomenal when their given an environment to connect with others..Check out these Public Speakers and let me know which ones inspire you.+Adrian Segar +Al Navas  +Alan Stevens  +Alasdair Allan +Alexis Ohanian  +Andrew Horton  +Andy Smith  2012-09-22 14:09:50159114CC G+

Edit to add: I also posted this at the official Glass community. With thanks to +Cecilia Abadie for developing the app on my behalf!

To all fellow Explorers and Glass enthusiasts:
I have a new app you might be interested in testing using: LINGUA (translations for Google Glass). You will find the START HERE button on the website I created just for this app, at

You will also find the short video I share below at the video page of the website, including some hints for use of the app:


Please share with other Explorers, and also let me know what you think about this little app. Thanks!

Problem: No indication on the main menu that sub-pages exist

Under the Training menu item I have placed four (4) pages. However, the menu item does not suggest that other pages are linked under it. What code should I add to style.css, to let the reader know that other pages are linked there?

I appreciate all suggestions. Thanks!

Hangouts - Problems downloading the plugin on Mac OS.

A colleague who uses Mac OS tried to download the plugin today. He uses Safari.

Edit to add: I looked up this on the Help page:

The Help page states that Safari supports the plugin.

The Problem: He was warned that the plugin would NOT work on Safari, and that he MUST download Chrome. He does NOT wish to download Chrome, yet he is totally unable to download the plugin!

1. Is this right???

2. If it is, since when?

3. He will likely never come onto Google+, nor use hangouts OR Helpouts, unless this is fixed.

As I am not a Mac OS user, I am totally speechless at this problem, and I look for a reply that makes sense. Denying the plugin download on Mac OS does NOT make sense, if the man wishes to use... more »

*Update 2: Nexus 4 battery life after reinstalling the Google+ app and tweaking settings:

What I did, to allow me to have 1 day plus 6 hours, with 60% charge left (!!!) (the secong image shows the HUGE discharge curve, with the Google+ app's settings to allow auto-backup, etc):

1. Completely turned off any kind of auto-back of photos, etc.
2. Left Google Now ON (because I get updates on Google Glass).
3. Opted out of interest-based ads
4. Left alone the Android Device Manager, to allow me to remotely locate the device, and also allow remote lock and erase.

That's it! Now I get quite decent battery charge life. 

The secret IS in the Settings for the Google+ app!

I appreciate any and all input.

My Nexus 4, running plain vanilla  KitKat 4.4.2:

1. Battery discharge (huge slope!) at a great rate, before I uninstalled the Google+ app.

2. Almost flat after unistalling the Google+ app. What???

Has anyone had a similar problem? IS Google+ the bad app here?

I welcome your comments. Thanks!

Puzzled. I was getting lousy battery charge life after the update of the Google+ app. I mean, only about 5 to 6 hours!

I removed the Google+ app this morning, and the battery life seems to be projecting much better charge life!

Any thoughts about the Google+ app running on KitKat?

"...The epitome of a man of service..."

Worrisome. At least we have options. Must-read, if you wish to avoid misleading Likes.

Greetings. I've lost a little hair over this issue. On a Windows 7 PC everything on our new web site looks perfect on Chrome and Firefox. The web site is:


Using Executive Pro.

However, my business partner sees huge difference on her Mac Pro, as shown in the images below; she did screen grabs on her large-format screen.

1. This is the way it shows on the Chrome browser.
2. The second image is on Firefox.
3. The third image is on Safari.
4. For comparison: The Copyblogger web site's home page, on Safari.

What could account for this huge difference in the way the home page of our web site displays?

By way of comparison she also sent me a screen grab of the Copyblogger web site - image 4.

Is Chrome broken on the Mac Pro?

I appreciate all help. Thanks!

We have been lucky, but many are dealing with much rougher conditions: Ice, snow, and a host of dangerous conditions.

Have you been affected?

A Special Request!

In enthusiastic anticipation of the big Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, KBIS in February 2014, which will run together for the first time with the International Builders Show, IBS in Vegas, I am already planning my show strategy, which includes video - and I want to present it live from the show floor!

In order to create live video at KBIS, I need 100 YouTube subscribers. Since I've only recently started working with YouTube and have done little promoting of the channel, I have a very small number of subscribers - which I can count on less than two hands! It's so sad ... sniff ...

Will you please subscribe to my YouTube channel? https://www.youtube.com/user/susanserrackd  I promise great content, news on what's happening in kitchens and baths and lots of cool slideshows as well as LIVE content during KBIS! Thank you!!more »

Google Glass in Helpouts - a very real +Helpouts simulation!

  #googleglass   #helpouts   #projectglass  

+Project Glass +Google Glass 

This video depicts a real Helpout in a simulation using a "regular" Google+ hangout. +Jeff Bond used Google Glass - that part was not simulated; the images of Jeff showing the areas of interest ARE from Google Glass in the hangout! +Al Navas was the "Client", seeking advice to repair a cantilever deck/balcony structure.

Why "simulated"? Because Helpouts by Google does not yet support Glass as a device. Therefore, this is "...a very real Helpout from a Google+ hangout, to demonstrate the use of Glass in a Helpout!..."

Our hope is that the Helpouts Team will work with the Hangouts Team to support Glass as one of the devices that can be used inHelpouts... more »

Q&A sessions in Google+ Hangouts.

Look closely at the bottom-left corner of the image on the left. The caption says:

"Be part of the conversation
Click to join live Q*A on Google+ Hangouts"

Note: This message appears only at the beginning of the video, and lasts a few seconds.

Clicking on the message (it appears at the very beginning of the video) takes you to the Q&A version. Once there, you can read all the questions asked by people watching the hangout stream during the hangout. If a question is selected, it moves to the top of the list of questions. Click on Done, and the question disappears from the queue, and it is archived with the video.

When you click on a question, the video jumps to the time at which the question was selected to be answered.
