NASA Goddard163,944NASA will fly two unmanned aircraft over Atlantic hurricanes this summer. Join us for this live Google+ Hangout featuring a NASA pilot and one of the two Global Hawk aircraft in its hangar at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in California. The Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel, or HS3, mission is a five-year project that first took to the field in 2012 from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, Wallops Island, Va. HS3 is investigating the roles of the large-scale environment and storm-scale internal processes in hurricane formation and intensity change in the Atlantic basin. HS3 scientists will use two NASA Global Hawks during the campaign, one with instruments measuring the environment around a tropical cyclone and the other with instruments looking into the storms. Participants in the event will hear about the 2012 mission and preparations underway at Wallops for this summer's flights. The HS3 lead scientist will explain how NASA will peer into hurricanes. And a Global Hawk pilot will discuss remote flying over tropical cyclones.  Participants for the Google+ Hangout are: * Scott Braun, HS3 principal investigator, Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. * Tom Miller, Global Hawk pilot, Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, Calif. * Marilyn Vasques, HS3 project manager, Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif. * Brian McNoldy, senior research associate, University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science NASA social media followers may submit questions on Google+ or Twitter in advance and during the event using the hashtag #NASAHS3. Before the Hangout begins, NASA will open a thread on its Facebook page where questions may be posted.NASA Hangout: Hurricane Severe Storm Sentinel Mission - HS32013-07-23 20:00:00345

Google Science Fair3,140,453*Come Hangout With Scientists from the American Museum of Natural History!* You'll get a fascinating glimpse into a process that fundamentally changed the trajectory of life on Earth. Dr. Eunsoo Kim and colleagues have shown the first definitive proof of what is thought to be a critical step in the evolution of photosynthesis, or the conversion of light into food, in algae and land plants. Photosynthetic plants, in turn, were responsible for raising the levels of oxygen in Earth’s atmosphere and paving the way for the rise of animals. Green algae belong to a group of organisms known as eukyarotes — a group that includes plants, animals, and fungi — which first appeared more than 1 billion years ago. Dr. Kim was particularly interested in the process by which early eukaryotes became photosynthetic: by engulfing free-living, photosynthetic microorganisms known as cyanobacteria but not digesting them. Eventually, the acquired cyanobacteria evolved into chloroplast, the specialized cell structure that harnesses the power of the Sun to carry out photosynthesis in green algae and land plants. Using feeding and staining experiments and a transmission electron microscope, Dr. Kim and colleagues were able to capture stunning images showing Cymbomonas, a basic green alga that resembles early ancestors, consuming bacteria. Join this Hangout On Air with Dr. Kim and Dr. Rob DeSalle at the American Museum of Natural History and learn about the Museum’s cutting-edge microscopy lab and its microbial collection. You'll find out how photosynthesis, a key part of the chain of life, may have developed on our planet. Dr. Kim is an assistant curator in the Division of Invertebrate Zoology at the American Museum of Natural History and an assistant professor at the Museum’s Richard Gilder Graduate School. Her lab uses a broad range of experimental approaches including fluorescence and electron microscopy, environmental DNA sequencing, and next-generation sequencing. Dr. Rob DeSalle is a curator in the Division of Invertebrate Zoology at the American Museum of Natural History and a professor at the Museum’s Richard Gilder Graduate School. Dr. DeSalle works in molecular systematics, microbial evolution, and genomics. His current research concerns the development of bioinformatic tools to handle large-scale genomics problems using phylogenetic systematic approaches. Post your questions for Dr. Kim and Dr. DeSalle below, and come Hangout On Air at the American Museum of Natural History!

If you have a child who wants to participate - please either +1 this post or reshare it or leave a comment. He'll get you invited to the hangout and you can supervise your kids during the event. Please note that NO adults will be allowed in the hangout to participate, just supervise as needed or perhaps chaperone would be a better term.  The idea is to provide a safe and fun environment for the kids to hangout.Hangout for 7-11 yr olds2013-01-24 01:00:005

Mike Downes38,500Back in the day, I was a student in teacher training. I had a vacation job as a conference assistant. Equipped with a radio, I was known as *Rootes 35*. Far _too often_, the place to find us was *Meeting Room One*. It was code for *The Airport Lounge* .. which is on the first floor of this building. So, here we are twenty years later with Hangouts .. feel like sitting around and doing nothing, but chat and hatch plans, then you'll find me here .. For the eager beavers, it won't take you long to track this place down from the photo. It's still there today, much the same but totally different .. For an extra point, you can tell me _why_ it has this name .. In the last 15 months of Google+, I've met a ton of great people in Hangouts .. I want to see them again and find out what they are doing.. I will send out the invites, when the names pop out .. So, pull up a chair and see who's about .. for there's _always_ someone in The Airport Lounge ..The Airport Lounge with Mike Downes, Rootes 35 is at Meeting Room One2012-10-25 21:30:0011

Mick Fealty14,152This Friday we're giving Education a first glance under our digital microscope. New markets for third level institutions are expanding rapidly and increasingly becoming global..  New forms of teaching such as MOOC’s (massive open online courses) are specifically designed to expand the intellectual footprint of some of the leading US educational institutes.  In addition new digital formats (not least our own @101560853443212199687 are creating new and cost effective ways communicating both internally and externally.   As @116024884086268367178  notes the future is not only arriving quicker than ever, it is comeing complete with the capacity to scale up quickly (if not always smoothly):  http://url.ie/ftos Please, please DO reshare with those you think will be interested either in taking part in the discussion or to watch the show...

Mick Fealty14,152Many of the most visible people in the tech and many different social worlds are men. But there is a plethora of talented women working in technology. We want to hear their stories.  So far we've done sessions on G+, Value and/or profit in digital journalism, social innovation, and then last week, Tourism in a digital age.  This week it is Women In Technology ( #womenintech ) *Format* - We kick off with a keynote interviewee for 5-10 mins, with other panelists then chipping in questions or responses. Volunteers/suggestions welcome. - We'll have a set of questions generated throughout the week via Google Moderator. This helps develop a strong a priori focus to each programme. - So long as it does not breach copyright (rules are tight for this format) we can also show short videos and screenshare links to topical stories. So we're looking for a mix of 'show and tell' and oversight of the issues facing women in technology (including science). Even if you cannot make it next Friday, we'd be very grateful for any help or suggestions for speakers you can give us. *Note*: we normally run these lunchtime sessions as lunch on Ireland/UK time, but we're running it a bit later to coincide more with a decent US breakfast time.#DigitalLunch: Women In Technology...2012-08-24 15:00:008  
Mick Fealty14,152This week we have guests from around the globe at our virtual lunch table to talk about tourism in this ever renewing digital age. Are there new opportunities and audiences for countries, towns, cities and regions to reach out? This week for the first time we're asking you to get involved in helping us direct the content of the programme itself. +Mike Downes has kindly set up a special (ie, beta) Google Moderator page here: https://www.google.com/moderator/#33/e=20306a&t=20306a.40. Here you can post the questions you would like the panel to face, and/or vote on others you'd like to see put. This excites me for three reasons: - one, we can launch well enough in advance so we have time to pull in plenty of  good questions (some left field no doubt) for the panel to really chew on; - two, once the #Hangoutonair  goes live you as readers will be able to see almost exactly what we are reading from you on the inside...  - so that, three, you can keep on adding and voting questions the whole way through the #HangoutOnAir . In addition please feel free to leave us your suggested articles, video links on this week's topic in the comments below... DigitalLunch: Tourism, a new opportunity or just digital hype?2012-08-17 14:00:006

Yifat Cohen87,656*Have you met* @100948891249021511115 yet?* *I WILL BE SHARING THE HOA LINK HERE BEFORE THE EVENT STARTS* He's a computer science guy who lives in Trinidad and loves to cook. He started sharing pictures of his dishes on Google+ way back when... When he was asked to cook on Hangouts he decided to teach instead and the *Learning How to Cook Caribbean with Larry Fournillier* cook show was born. Google loved what he did and added him to their Hangout commercial and the SUL, but that's not really what's important to Larry. The fact that his show inspires others not only to cook Caribbean but also to paint (like @107771181372242547518 who created the theme picture of this event - Splash of Flavor Body Paint http://youtu.be/eqp9FPiUJZk). Hangouts changed Larry's life, gave him purpose and meaning, and it even inspired him to create *a woman only social site*. *HOW DID HE DO IT?* Come meet one of the most easy-going and friendly SUL guy face to face and learn how it's all about *the people you meet* and your *relationship* with them.Finding Your Life Purpose Through Hangouts2012-08-09 18:00:0057

It's often quite hard to make a popular place personal, to appear as if you're the only one there. I think the gentleman on chair reading an old school paper book in the sun did just that.

I was delighted, albeit transfixed for Somerset has a rare quality, it has stillness about it. Yet walk through those dark arches and it's an instant sensible chaos of the Strand.

However such beauty comes at a great cost. I took these shots on 24 June 2015. On 26 June 2015, the Sousse Terrorist attack happened in Tunisia. Thirty eight people were killed, 30 of whom were British. And one of those was Carly Jade who was sitting having her lunch at Somerset House on 7 June 2015 just three weeks before I was there. I did not know here, but will always think of her when I see my photos. https://www.instagram.com/p/3oCyu0KAhg/ ..'ceejayell_Back at Somerset House! Currently sat in the... more »

Here's a question, 'As a Local Guide, how many times have we investigated a business [to see if it even exists] only to find out some 'awkward' details that should not be public .. You do not 'need' to be a super advanced google searcher or a hacker, but if you are, then it just speeds up getting the information you need .. And the real awkward dilemma, when you have this info -- do you just pass it by or contact business and tell them? .. if you do, i bet you get no reply or a reply that accuses you of snooping, or doing something illegal -- something that you have not done.. /difficult topic really ...

A few weeks ago, I walked past this place and took little notice, although I did photography a neighbouring run down beach hut. As a local guide - what do you do when you have no photos and see the maps page is nothing but bare bones. I guess the real answer is an informed cheat.
On googling we do find a few beach hut listings for The Shack, and a facebook page. I copied the photos and added to maps along with an aerial earth photo showing off the location looking out to the estuary. I then facebooked the page inviting them to 'claim their business' ... https://goo.gl/maps/qG4tnDiJG892 .. / as a side note, this area is steeped in history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heybridge,_Maldon ..

So the BBC have Poldark in a Series 2 just starting in UK. The main Chavenage House (in real life) is curiously NOT on Google Maps with all the information - how strange is that? - not one local guides photo either (there are a few photos in the carousel, but from panoramio).

In my view, this goes to show how overlooked a place page on google maps 'can be'. Just because you have a hit TV Show means nothing. Notice how the official website www.chavenage.com does have an embedded map, just with very old google logo. links:

How to Copy YouTube Video URL at the Current Time .. If like me, you share videos all the time at a set timestamp - then this is a shortcut you will need. In one right click copy/paste you have a timestamp ready to go ..

All you need to know is ?t= where the number you add is in SECONDS ie https://youtu.be/ZeFTEjQgq8U?t=73 is 1m 13 secs .. I would definitely refresh yourself on the 6 times table .. 6, 12,18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60 ....

And yes for those who already know you can add as mins secs as: t=1m13s .. just extra typing ..
