Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321234995CC G+

Happy Ramadan Everyone!
It is that blessed time of year again, where Muslims around the world will unite in their celebration of the month in which the the Prophet Muhammad first received revelations from Allah (God).

For a period of 30 days, Muslims undertake a physical and mental abstinence known as fasting. From dawn until sun set, Muslims will refrain from eating or drinking, sexual activity, speaking or acting in an obscene manner, or indulging the mind and heart in things other than the remembrance of Allah. 

Devoting oneself to steady prayer and self-control helps one to sympathise with the less fortunate who suffer from hunger on a daily basis. This sympathy is a reminder of the importance of charity, which every adult Muslim is obliged to donate to the less fortunate (2.5% of savings per year). Fasting and giving charity are two of the five pillars of Islam.more »

Yes, hands down, my visit to the Future of Flight Aviation Centre in Seattle for a tour of the Boeing Factory was the best tour I have ever done! Aside from actually being inside the LARGEST building in the World and seeing it hold a massive 747 like it was my Honda in a garage, the process of building a jet from start to finish was mind blowingly impressive. 

Some cool facts that I never knew:
* there are almost 300 orders for the 747 in 2014

* one economy chair can cost up to $200,000, the workers on the factory floor cover them with a red sheet with a picture of a Ferrari to remind them of how expensive they are!

* Once you add the cost of the engines, chairs and actual plane a 747 could cost up to $350 Million! (chump change...)

* When considering the paint job, lighter colours are less dense... more »

Happy Eid Everyone!
This celebration marks the end of the Ramadan month, millions of Muslims are rejoicing around the World with donations to the needy (zakaat), feasting and family time.

It's a great time to pick up the phone and call a friend you perhaps haven't spoken to in years, make amends with an estranged family member or even to say hello to the neighbour who you haven't really taken the time to get to know.

Is there a nice gesture you'd like to make? If so what is it? Might make for some inspiration!

Google Atmosphere, Sydney 2014
Last week, Google brought together technology and business-focused learning experiences for executives interested in finding out about how Google can help transform work.

The event offered several streams that explored how cultural change and technological advancements are reshaping the way people work today. I was invited to speak alongside Google and our geo partner NGIS on how organisations can Visualise Business Data using mapping. Some very interesting concepts were discussed, including the application of visible and invisible maps in both a commercial and non-commercial context.

Fantastic article, bravo to +The Sydney Morning Herald  for finally publishing what other Australian news networks are ignoring. You just earned my respect. 

To my dear friends on Google+ - I ask you to share this article and to not remain silent on the atrocities happening in the Middle East. Support the networks who are doing what the news is obliged to do - REPORT THE FACTS. Not to hide the truth.

More Museums than you can Poke a Camera at!
My visit in 2009 to the Istanbul Archaeology Museums actually took me a whole day, as there were three museums in the one area, with a combined total of over one million objects from various civilizations in world history!

The three museums are:
1. Archaeological Museum (in the main building)
2. Museum of the Ancient Orient
3. Museum of Islamic Art (in the Tiled Kiosk).

There is a LOT of stuff in these places, my camera dies before I could capture all of the good stuff. I have included commentary alongside each piece. 

PS the last picture of cats is random, but they were there, lying out in the sun, awaiting food and adoration by visitors :)

Secrets of the Underground in Istanbul
What you see here is the Basilica Cistern, in Turkish meaning "Sunken Palace." It is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns that lie beneath the city of Istanbul.

The cistern has the capacity to store 100,000 tons of water, but today it holds only a few feet of water lining the bottom. 

It is also where the two Medusa Head pillars are found. The origin of the two heads is unknown, though it is thought that the heads were brought to the cistern after being removed from a building of the late Roman period. Tradition has it that the blocks are oriented sideways and inverted in order to negate the power of the Gorgons' gaze (the gaze that turns men to stone! And which Medusa is infamous for in Greek mythology).

In reality, it is widely thought that one was placed sideways only to be the proper size to... more »

Exploring Istanbul's Daily Life
Walking the streets of a city is one of the best ways to get a feel for the vibe, culture and people. During my visit in 2009, colleagues and I had some time to eat at a local spot and explore the markets for shopping. Spices, scarves and silks, gold, perfumes - all can be found among the savvy Turkish merchants who are probably the most difficult hagglers I have ever met in all my travels. You might find a bargain, but not without some frustration and exhausted conversations!

Take the time to listen to local music and enjoy views of the Bosphorus, which offer interesting views from different vantage points in the city.

Asia or Europe?
Well, if you take a cruise on The Bosphorus in Istanbul, Turkey, you'll technically be straddling both! As the World's narrowest strait, it forms part of the boundary between Europe and Asia and connects the Black Sea with the Sea of Marmara (connected to the Mediterranean Sea).

In fact, due to its composition and flow along the floor, if it were on land it would be the 6th largest river in the World.

The Bosporus remains strategically important as a major sea access route for Russia and Ukraine. Control over it has been an objective of a number of hostilities in modern history, notably the Russo–Turkish War, 1877–1878, as well as of the attack of the Allied Powers on the Dardanelles during the 1915 Battle of Gallipoli in the course of World War I.

Palace of Turkish Kings
During my visit to Istanbul, Turkey in 2009 I visited Topkapı Palace, home to Ottoman sultans for 400 years (between 1465–1856).

This UNESCO World Heritage Site overlooks the Bosphorus River and sits on an area big enough to hold mosques, a hospital, bakeries, a mint, a treasury, a library and several large courtyards. In fact, in one was home to 4,000 people.

The palace itself has hundreds of rooms and chambers, but only the most important are accessible to the public today. The museums hold large collections of porcelain, robes, weapons, shields, armor, Ottoman miniatures, Islamic calligraphic manuscripts and murals, as well as a display of Ottoman treasures and jewellery.

Enjoy the album & commentary!

Happy Ramadan Everyone!
It is that blessed time of year again, where Muslims around the world will unite in their celebration of the month in which the the Prophet Muhammad first received revelations from Allah (God).

For a period of 30 days, Muslims undertake a physical and mental abstinence known as fasting. From dawn until sun set, Muslims will refrain from eating or drinking, sexual activity, speaking or acting in an obscene manner, or indulging the mind and heart in things other than the remembrance of Allah. 

Devoting oneself to steady prayer and self-control helps one to sympathise with the less fortunate who suffer from hunger on a daily basis. This sympathy is a reminder of the importance of charity, which every adult Muslim is obliged to donate to the less fortunate (2.5% of savings per year). Fasting and giving charity are two of the five pillars of Islam.more »

What if you could travel back in time?
I recently watched the latest x-men movie where Wolverine travels back in time. And while I never like to dwell on the past, or the "what ifs", reflecting on what I COULD have done helps me to think seriously about getting a start NOW on those items.

What would you do? And more importantly, what's stopping you from starting now?

1. Take up a new language every 2 years, from the age of 19. 
2. Continue a range of sports including track & field
3. Make a short film when the opportunity to do so presented itself

Remember, no regrets, only reflection and action! xo

Irish charm in Half Moon Bay
Where is that you say? About 1.5 hours drive south of San Francisco, on the water's edge. I was visiting in April for Google's annual AdWords Performance Forum, hosted at the Ritz Carlton, which boasts an old-world heritage feel in it's vast mansion like hotel. Quite a contrast to the digitally themed event!

A word of advice to those looking to visit - take a coat! It was extremely cold, and deceptively so with the sunshine out all day.

What does the phrase Insha'Allah mean?
Muslims are often heard to say this word in response to a question, or when talking about future tense. 

It means "If Allah (God) wills" or "God willing" and highlights the belief that everything is in accordance to God's plan, thus we should always ask for His blessing and guidance when embarking on a journey or path. As faithful believers in God, we should trust the outcome (irrespective of whether we think it to be negative or positive) and ensure our faith does not waiver.

The phrase is often used colloquially in Middle Eastern cultures, as a way of politely saying "we'll see how it goes" to one's request for something. This is not to be confused with the actual meaning of "Insha'Allah".

Some Snaps of me in San Francisco for a day stop over during a conference. Had great Japanese food with a friend, tried Sea Urchin Sashimi for the first time! Not for everyone, probably one piece is enough as it is really strong, I found it very overpowering!

China Town in San Fran is awesome - loads of antiques, quirky furniture and enough souvenirs to keep anyone entertained.

San Fran this time round was definitely a lot more relaxed (and warmer!) - I hung out in Union Square as I waited for my flight time... great conversation with some interesting characters are to be had there :)

The Sophisticated Side to Seattle
I was able to walk around the city, snapping photos of all the beautiful scenary and architecture. What I loved about it was the mixture of parkland and skyscrapers - so urban chic! 

I went to the famous Space Needle, the Central Library (that was a piece of art in and of itself!) and to the parkland by Alaska Way where sculptures stood for the public to enjoy.

I haven't posted in a little while which is a strange feeling. I just didn't have the energy of late... but also because I read an article which made me think twice.

It was about those who live vicariously through social networks. That all the good bits and none of the bad are shared for nothing more than glorification. Validation of one's existence.

That interactions online replaced those of the physical world.

I'm torn. Digital is my world. I love my G+ community. And I'm sharing all the good stuff because positive stories are what make people feel good, including me!

It makes me feel more connected to the World somehow and I've made a lot of amazing friends along the way.

So... how much of a good thing is too much?

Sunny Seattle all Weekend! is how I remember my visit. The entire weekend was warm, sun shining and not a drop of rain. Granted I was lucky but I can't picture Seattle in any other way. It was still a bit chilly but the sun still drew crowds out into Pike Street Market, where I spent all Sunday afternoon lazing about, reading and strolling through the markets. 

Throughout the album you'll see the very first Starbucks store in the World, bread,  cheese and coffee making, fish market and the famous flower market with Tulips for as little as $1 a stem!  

Enjoy :)

Head Spinning Delight!
What you see pictured here is the Seattle Great Wheel, the tallest Ferris wheel on the USA west coast since opening in 2012. Well, that was up until last month! Just ONE week after I took this photo, the Ferris Wheel in Vegas opened... and that is now the tallest observation wheel in the WORLD! Sorry Seattle :)

Seattle businessman Hal Griffith built the Ferris Wheel on the pier (which he also owned) and it opened to the public June 29, 2012. More facts about it throughout the album, and as you can see the photo opportunities were endless! Such a great spot for experimentation!

Best Accidental Cruise Ever!
It was my first day in Seattle. The weather was chilly but the sun was out and not a drop of rain in sight. I walked along Alaskan Way and the Pier, taking in all the sights and enjoying the coffee (yes, it is the city of coffee!) I was standing watching the boats come in, when I heard an announcement through the loud speaker "half price for the Harbour cruise, departing in 30 mins." Well... it was almost 5pm, too early for dinner, so why the heck not!

And so for $12, I took a 1 hour cruise and saw the Seattle skyline, one of the world's largest shipping terminals, glimpses of Mt. Rainier and mountain ranges in the distance and of course, a detailed historical account of Puget Sound and the interesting events that have taken place in Seattle over the past 60 years. Highly recommended!

The Famous Ivar's Seafood Bar in Seattle attracts thousands of locals and tourists alike. For less than $10 you can have yourself some fresh Alaskan Salmon or Cod, two of my most favourite fish! And no where near as dear as in Sydney that's for sure (or anywhere else in the World come to think of it...)

One of the attractions (aside from the amazingly delicious seafood) is the Seagull landing, where dozens of birds flock to share your lunch :) I sat there enjoying the sunset, feeding them my chips and taking photos of the amazing landscape. 

Hands down best FISH (not chips) I have had globally from a Fish & Chips shop.

Hemp Lattes, 2 headed calves, bubblegum walls and cheery blossoms are among the things you will find in Seattle! This seemingly quite and family-friendly town has a wacky side to it that's for sure! Seattle's weird and wonderful sights took me by surprise, as they were not listed in any of the online guides that I read, and as I walked through the city for 6 hours I came across all sorts of hidden treasures.

Seattle was definitely a city that under-promised and over-delivered on experience!

Company Counts. Especially in Vegas.
I had an amazing weekend catching up with one of my closest friends whom I haven't seen in over a year!

Although I swore that I would never return to Vegas after last year's trip (kind of a once-in-lifetime tick off the bucket list sort of place) I am actually glad I did as it was quite pleasant in the warmer weather and enjoying it with friends makes all the difference. Highlight was definitely the Cirque du Soleil Show "Love" (which is performed to Beatles songs and set in the English era in which they were supreme).

Thanks to all my G+ friends who made suggestions for places to go!

Earth's Embrace by Shaden Mohamed
Frosted flowers, withered blooms
Sit silently in open fields
Awaiting light and dark to pass
And gentle winds to which they yield

Amongst the songs of birds in flight
That signal start and end of days
The blooms will shiver as they wake
To greetings from the morning rays

And as the pickled apples wilt
Into the earth from whence they shined
The worms embrace their daily feast
On life the World has left behind.

There is no mourning of the dead
For life gives life to lives anew
And guided by Time's short embrace
The world will bow as they pass through.

Apparently this little code means I need to step out of line and get a separate security screening by TSA. At the request of the airline without any reasoning given to me.

Delta - why have I been randomly selected? I travel 2-3 times a year to the US and mostly on Delta internal flights. I'd just like to know... can't STILL be profiling can it? I thought the focus had shifted to the Russians and Koreans these days....

On the plus side, it was the most respectful and easiest pat down and screening I've ever received so can't complain there! Time for coffee and work email while I await my flight in 3 hrs...

Ziplining through the tree tops of Waiheke!
If you are looking for a thrill but can't bring yourself to start with a skydive or bungee jump, then a zipline is the way to go! Exciting adventure in the great outdoors of NZ's Waiheke's Island, on a beautiful sunny day with nothing but the smell of nature and beach at every turn.

After the zip lines, we made our way back to base camp with a light 30 minute bush walk. Lots of fun, and great to learn all about the different plants (including those which are edible, just in case you get lost!).

That Kind of Life still exits...
You know, the kind where people know each other by name, wave hello on the streets and worry about the fishing conditions rather than the hustle and bustle of a stressful city life. Where is this place? Ironically, just 40 mins away from a major city centre.

Waiheke Island is in the Hauraki Gulf of New Zealand, approx. 18km from Auckland. The island is purposely kept "eco-friendly" to keep large scale developers at bay. ie. there are no traffic lights, or major sewerage pipes or water systems set up to handle large buildings. In other words, the residents live a country-town kind of life and will fight tooth and nail to keep it that way!

Loved the vibe, the sun and beautiful coastline. Would come back again and spend a week just chilling in the cafes and lying on the quiet beaches.

- buskers and street entertainers
- sailing
- maritime history
and much more... (related to food :D ) Loved it, would definitely go back and time it to the good weather!

Stars in a Cave...
That's what they look like. Thousands and thousands of glowworms attached to the ceilings and walls of dark, 2 million-year-old caves in New Zealand. We were not allowed to take photos or make any noise that would disturb them so you'll just have to take my word for it :)

The best part of this tour was taking a boat ride through the river system that ran through the cave, in the DARK! The only thing visible was the sparkling of glowworms... so beautiful :)

One thing I found the most interesting: when glowworms mature they become flies that have no mouths... and for the time they are alive they breed and lay eggs. Then they die from starvation. Sometimes they are even eaten by their young. Nice! (shudder). Enjoy the album (whatever of it you can see :))

My Journey to Hobbiton, film set of Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit!
Located in Matamata NZ, this film set for Peter Jackson's famous trilogy and Hobbit series is one of 150 film locations, but was the only one left standing after filming ended (and opened as a tourist attraction for fans!)

Everything was authentic, right down to the Green Dragon pub which actually serves food and ale for visiting tourists (more photos of this in the next post!)

The scenery is absolutely stunning, not to mention all the rabbit holes and hobbit-like items to make it look real. If you are a fan of the films, look through the album and see if you can spot some familiar shots from the movie :)
