+Claire Cain Miller of +The New York Times has written a followup piece addressing her use of the term "Ghost Town" (her original piece is "The Plus in Google Plus? It’s Mostly for Google" : http://nyti.ms/1jcLspA)

We disagree with that assessment and know how #awesomesauce  +Google+ is and just barely scratch the surface with our own recent piece by +matthew rappaport : http://huff.to/1gERI8H

What are your thoughts about Claire's response? 

We would add that Google+ hasn't been around a full 3 years yet with most people not really joining Facebook until year 3 or 4 of its existence. Time will definitely tell over the next year or +2.

Yes and in good fun there is a +Ghost Town Google plus with all the "ghosts" via +pio dal cin.

I suddenly need a kidney.
Honestly, I don't know any other way to word it. My kidney condition has worsened considerably over the past few months and I'm now looking at needing a transplant within 3 to 6 months. I want to be around for my wife Rachel and daughter for a long time, so this is necessary. Plus, I like life, it's fun! Death is lame, don't make me do it. (Jokes are my coping mechanism)

We will enter my name on the transplant list, but that tends to take a year or more to find a donor. Instead, there are two better options: I find a kind, healthy person willing to donate directly or indirectly through the kidney exchange network (it depends on your blood group). My blood type is A positive and my birthday is 06/12/1970 (you need this for the donor form).
If you are that person, please contact me!

No  democracy  in Italy  with 60% fiscal pressure...the highest in Europe. Did you know?

Italy  is the most beautiful Country in the world. I am not making a list of all the great things and the wonderful people you'll find here.But do not let the media frenzy fool you. Our prime minister #Renzi   and its leftist government are feeding us our dose of daily bullshit. A lot of talk.Too much talking but no action. Many Italians are suffering today  due to a harsh economiccrisis that touches only the lower and the middle classes. Politicians are corrupted and when they get caught with their hands in the marmelade they always...I repeat,, always get away with murder. Next time they talk about "Democracy" here in Italy, do not listen. There isn't any of that stuff here in the most beautiful Country in the world. Dictatorship sounds a lot better when you read about people starving while the politicians are enjoying six figures a year's paychecks for doing nothing and the fiscal pressure is the highest in Europe with 60%. Next time you plan a trip to Italy just remember that: The people of Italy will make your experience here wondeful, but the government and its politicians it is a whole different ball game.___No  democracy  in Italy  with 60% fiscal pressure...the highest in Europe.

#MotherDay2015  

Well. Here I am... I am sharing my story with Giselle (Jack you know it already...) I will try to keep it short and eventually develop it later..if asked to do so..

I have to start from a young farm boy the youngest of four brothers, born in 1923 in a small country town nested between the Adriatic and the Dolomites, a rural town of 5300 souls where working the fields from dawn to sunset was the only way of surviving .

He was a handsome man,yet simple; and as it was customary back then he finished his fifth grade elmentary school and went back to help his family with the farming.

Families were living in big houses, the greater the number of the children the higher possibility they had to "steal" from a already stingy land, a good crop and survive trough the harsh times and long winters.

His name was Narciso. When he turned 20 Mussolini was already dead and Italian troops were asked to fight the old ally, Germany.

Narciso was captured in Jugoslavia by the Nazis and moved into a working campo in Northern Germany.

He was sent 12 hours a day in a coal mine, without food, he had to work like this for 18 months till the Americans came to free him on April 25th 1945.

He wa sick and weighed 80 pounds when he returned home. His back was severely damaged, so it was put in a cast from his neck to his waist for three long years, in a specialized clinic in Cortina d'Ampezzo, where eventually met Maria Teresa, who pampered him after falling in love with the handsome veteran.

When he came home from the hospital he was still sick, so he took a trip to Lourdes from where he came home completely healed.

His life was devoted from then on to a strong religious behaviour and when Maria Teresa whom he married in 1952 gave birth to their first child they named her Maria Bernardetta, to remember the "miracle" that put Narciso back on his feet

Three years later Antonio Maria was born.

In 1956 Maria Teresa was pregnant again. Maria Bernardetta and Antonio were both born by Caesarian,

One of the check up showed to the doctors that the child she was carrying could have not made it to the end of the nine months, so they adviced Maria Teresa to "get rid" of the child she was carrying.

Narciso in the meantime had the chance to get to know a friar who was said to be in "profumo di santità" Padre Pio da Petrelcina, was making people feeling better and he was said to perform miracles.

Narciso travelled to Puglia and asked him for Spiritual advice."What Shall I do father? My wife is pregnant and the doctors are telling her to get rid of the child what should I do Padre Pio?"

"Go home Narciso" The Holy man said "everything is going to be ok..tell your wife to go to the end of this.."

Narciso gave the message to Maria Teresa and she happiy carried on with her pregnancy. I was born on October the 15th 1956 and I was named after the Holy Friar (who has been proclaimed a Saint by John Paul the Second six years ago)

Pio Maria. it's me....






Remember to share your Love

My mom passed away on February 20 2006, after fighting her last battle with cancer that lasted for TWO years.

When She was pregnant of me (her third child) she was adviced by doctors to "get rid" of me, as the pregnancy was very risky for her, and she could have died if she did carried it on.

She refused, as my father, a man of deep faith, contacted PADRE PIO, a friar who lived in Southern Italy, and was known as a SAINT.

"Go home..." He said to my dad "Everything will be ok. Your wife will not die".

My father brought the news to MARIA TERESA, and she did carried on with her pregnancy.

That is why my NAME is PIO.

TODAY, ON MOTHER's DAY I would like to share this story with the world, to show how LOVE can change people's lives.

THANK YOU MOM. You are living through me, and you always will.

THE PHOTO

This photo was taken by a nurse in 1956. It is a reproduction of an old B&W print.
The mother is smiling after giving birth to her third child and the happiness is mixed with the exhaustion and the pain she had to go trough to bring her Love to Life.

I choosed to publish this photo today,on MOTHER's day as a reminder that Love is the real engine of our lives, it is what has brought together millions of people troughout the ages.

When it comes to show our Love we are very suspicious and careful specially when it comes to show it to our parents who gave us the greatest gift of Life.

MOTHER's day should be celebrated every day for Love has to be let fly like a bird.

Love your mom and show her that you do:

Just a few words, whispered or shouted out loud, through an email or a phon call, a short message, a flower...a photo

A photo. This photo I am sharing today with my mother who is who is the young lady carrying the child on her arms for the very first time: I am the child and this was the first day of my Life. Thank you mom, for everything I know today I own it to you:

#codognecuoreveneto  

So, here it is - 3 weeks in one album. Whew! Tons of great memories! 
This journey started as a celebration for my 50th Birthday and then transitioned into a celebration of Italy and all the cities I visited and people I met. The overwhelming amount of generous hospitality extended by everyone was unprcedented. There was not one moment where I wasn't in awe of everything around me. Italy is truly a charming and lovely country. 

The #MiaOnTheGo  venture was a media trip in collaboration with +Winerist who were instrumental in connecting me to hotels & excursions that made my trip fantastic. If you are even THINKING of traveling to Italy, you need to check out their site! A huge shout of thanks to the following businesses 

+Marignolle relais & charme 
+Hotel Dei Mellini 
+Hotel Dei Borgognoni 
+500 Touring Club Florence, Italy 
+Liv Italy 
+ViniCultural Tours 
+Agriturismo Poggio al Tufo 

Every place I visited, everywhere I stayed and each excursion were TOP NOTCH ( see the photos - pics don't lie!)

Special thanks to +pio dal cin for introducing me to his favorite businesses who were also collaborative partners during my visit!
+Ca' Del Poggio 
+Villa Toderini -

#DaPonte   - http://www.daponte.it/
Ristorante Mela Cotogna 
Mayor Roberto Bet & Lisa Tommasella - Codogne

Thank you to +Nazim Beltran and +Elisabetta Chiesi  for your tireless care for this old American! From the moment I arrived in Milan, I felt at home!  We celebrated my birthday in grand style at  (brilliant idea, Betti), celebrated the big 50 birthday with a fun makeover with Betti's friend Karine, and experienced amazing food along that way at places such as La Bossa and Corey's Soul Chicken  
https://youtu.be/pzLZ3VDA2kE
https://youtu.be/6Dno-2cUK9s
https://youtu.be/9aA24W11Dcc

And, of course, spending Easter with the Chiesi family in #Camogli    was beyond memorable. Truly a priceless blessing to spend time with their family & friends, especially after being on the road for so long. 

Thank you to +Adelheid Hörnlein & +Mark Davenport of +PARADISO INTEGRALE The Power of Relationship for schlepping me around to some amazing sites as well as hosting a Power Chat in their amazing retreat home: https://youtu.be/lU2ksMYrYbw
Ohhhh, and Heidi packed a nice little care package for my train trip - thank you darling!

A few other notes & mentions:
As you will note, the stormtrooper which was donated by +Cameron Young makes a frequent appearance during the trip - he usually was attempting to bogart anything to do with coffee, prosecco or wine (with an occasional nosh thrown in). A special shoutout to +Dawn Swick-Renshaw - my darling #Twinsie  who sent me the most amazing Tiffany heart necklace which I kept close to my heart the whole time - it felt like a protective talisman! I also wore my amazing earrings from +Denise Wakeman (I think I have a video somewhere on this, Denise!) as well as the #GoPro  loan from the snake man himself (and stormtrooper donator), +Cameron Young 

One more shoutout to my gracious City Ambassadors: +Nazim Beltran +Elisabetta Chiesi +pio dal cin, +Nicola Rex, +Adelheid Hörnlein  & +Mark Davenport   - they were ambassadors extraordinaire!

BIG PROPS to +Debi Davis and +Bill Reed - these two are smarty pants beyond measure & the masterminds behind this whole excursion. Their sharp minds were instrumental in putting things together before the trip & keeping everything organized and from falling off the rails during the trip!  

Thank you to my Board of Influencers who are helping to spread the word on the #MiaOnTheGo  venture!

As an aside, I love how Google compiles photos, video and autoawesome moments into one album. It really makes the memories pop!

Here are a few of my top tips for Americans traveling to Europe:

1. Know your numbers: Euro - Dollar (not too tough), the Metric system (for instance, when someone says" oh it's about 30 kilometers", you won't stare blankly.... for too long! 
2. Pack Light. Pack Light. and... pack light. It's amazing how you don't give a flying fig about many items packed about halfway through a trip. Packing light leaves room for gifts & fun new items. You may need to buy another cheapo suitcase - just be prepared to pay extra for checking another bag! (airline dependent)
3. FLUSH! Be prepared to spend time figuring out how to flush the toilet - every toilet was different (I have a bunch of toilet photos - stay tuned for that entertaining album)
4. Get fit before you go (thank you  !!) - That way you can throw down on every meal and not worry. Plus touring is exercise... Europe involves tons of walk walk walk walking!
5. Be curious! Seek out the locals and be open to everything they suggest - you can't go wrong.

Experience has shown me that the greatest inner tranquillity comes from developing love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warm-hearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove our fears and insecurities and gives us strength to face obstacles - it is the ultimate source of success in life.

#codognecuoreveneto   calling +Samantha Cristoforetti 

To all my friends on G+ please could you help me spread this hashtag? #codognecuoreveneto every time you share one of my posts or mention me? It is about my first book I published one month ago about a small country town in Italy in the Veneto region. I am trying to reach +Samantha Cristoforetti the first woman astronaut who is flying over our heads as we speak on the #ISS #futura42 mission. In my book (first in Italy to include color qr code directing the readers to a more complex multimedial content such as video interviews or photo album) I placed a qr code with the interview I did with +Samantha Cristoforetti last year (53 minutes interview) I am trying to send this as a "message in a bottle" tryinh to reach her up there so that she could send a virtual hug to the 5300 people of this small town nested between the Adriatic see and the Dolomites mountains, just an hour away from Venice. That would be a great gift. That is why I am sending this message in the bottle to all my good friends on G+ and see if the goal can be reached. Please reshare this if you can with the hashtag #codognecuoreveneto and mention a few of your friends that could do that as well. This is the first time I do this in four years on G+ I am the one who usually shares others' post...but this time I have A MESSAGE IN THE BOTTLE for +Samantha Cristoforetti  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbXWrmQW-OE)___ #codognecuoreveneto   calling +Samantha Cristoforetti

Google+ has changed a few things in the background. 
These are changes that only extensions take note off and stop working because they are offended about not getting notified before the changes are published. just kidding

Thanks to +Karl Louis for giving us a note!

This can be a sign of a bigger change coming in the next days.

The story behind the photo

The Milan's Team fans were ready to leave our town to catch a charter flight to Barcellona, to see the Championship Final between Milan and Steaua Bucarest. It was May 24th 1989 (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x14w9y0_steaua-bucuresti-milan-0-4-coppa-dei-campioni-1988-1989_sport)

As I came to the airport to greet my friends leaving to Spain, I asked the girl at the charter's desk if there were any seats available. I was kind of joking. I knew my request was impossible.
"Yes...we have a few seats of people who already paid for the tickets but never showed up..the tickets are on sale now for 100.000 Lira (5oEuros).
"Hold one for me" I said as I darted to the car to pick up my cameras and passport.

I was on the flight one hour later. I could not believe what was happening it happened so fast.

"Yes...we have a few seats of people who already paid for the tickets but never showed up..the tickets are on sale now for 100.000 Lira (5oEuros).
"Hold one for me" I said as I darted to the car to pick up my cameras and passport.

I was on the flight one hour later. I could not believe what was happening it happened so fast. 
The next day (game day) I had to spend four hours trying to convince the press office's people that I was a reporter from Italy even if I had no fax from my news agency sent, due to the fact that I left at the last minute. 
They looked at all the press passes I showed them,my credentials were good. Still, few hours before the game started they offered me two central seat tickets to watch the game (they were worth 500Euros) 

I answered that I wasn't there to WATCH the game, I was there to PHOTOGRAPH it.

They finally gave me the press pass for the field.
At the end of the game I ran across the field to where Gullit and  Van Basten (they scored two goals each) were running. I was lucky as they decided to stop about two meters away from me. That was really my lucky day because when I went home I sold more of these photos than any other in my whole career. This is one of my best stories and I'm sharing it with you tonight as the #brasil2014   #worldcup   gets on the way in a few days.

Dogs are Angels sent from up above, to show us humans how to Love without excpecting any reward. Just because....Compassion and Love are the two pillars that lead us to the path of happiness. Mankind is developing into some sort of tech cyborg, which is great when it is applied to our daily lives to make this world a better place. Often we forget where we came from, and it isn't easy anymore to share our love with others, as we focus on our own, often forgetting that if we stop and look back there are many others who are not as blessed as we are. This story today has got me thinking deeply on the values of life, on love and compassion. We are just as "tourists" here in this Planet, as once HH +Dalai Lama once said. Life is short.

A couple of years ago, my friend, +pio dal cin told me that it didn't matter where I lived ... that I could find the beauty and personality of my own little neck of the woods and photograph that ... let other people see what a beautiful part of the world that I live in :)

The very next day I found this barn nestled in the foothills of the mountains, and so I began to convey my love of barns and all things farmy to my G+ family :)  Thank you to Pio for helping me to regain my motivation!!!

#newtrends  from +YouTube 

"Clocking. Glub Glub. Kissing Dad. These are just a few of the viral video trends for 2014 that we’re spotlighting in this week’s YouTube Re:View. Taking top billing on this week's trending list, though, with nearly 40 million views, is a clip of a nun auditioning for “The Voice Italy”—a special moment that transcends language. And GoPro camera gets up close and personal with Alaskan grizzly bears on the hunt for fish in another adventurous video that shows why GoPro is building such a large fanbase on YouTube."

The Views Rankings
After a looong night

We will start with some simply lists:
Profiles ordered by Views
http://www.circlecount.com/profilesviews/

Pages ordered by Views
http://www.circlecount.com/pagesviews/

The lists are update in realtime and as we check the profiles/pages. Right now there are only 3,929 profiles/pages in our index with a view count, but the script is running... 3 minutes now ;)

We will have to see tomorrow which other metrics can be created out of this view number (at first we want to get sure it's not an April Fool's Joke ;) ).

please help

We've raised $440 for Winnie's surgery to have a mammary tumor removed. Thank you to all who donated so far. If you have not donated, please consider helping out. This is the first time ever that I have asked for monetary support (aside from selling girl scout cookies when I was eight). I am bad at this, admittedly, but it is amazing what you do for a loved one. Winnie has been by my parents' sides as they struggled with cancer and by mine as I've been writing, tutoring and learning to program to break this bout of unemployment. If you have even a little bit to help Winnie out, please consider us! You can support her through the Gofundme account at:
http://www.gofundme.com/7hyae0 .
I also have a PayPal account under my name and email: jtackman@gmail.com. 

Thank you so much for your support and consideration. I will keep everyone updated on how things go. ___please help

I suddenly need a kidney.
Honestly, I don't know any other way to word it. My kidney condition has worsened considerably over the past few months and I'm now looking at needing a transplant within 3 to 6 months. I want to be around for my wife Rachel and daughter for a long time, so this is necessary. Plus, I like life, it's fun! Death is lame, don't make me do it. (Jokes are my coping mechanism)

We will enter my name on the transplant list, but that tends to take a year or more to find a donor. Instead, there are two better options: I find a kind, healthy person willing to donate directly or indirectly through the kidney exchange network (it depends on your blood group). My blood type is A positive and my birthday is 06/12/1970 (you need this for the donor form).
If you are that person, please contact me!

Also, here is a link to more information:

Hangouts 2.0 for iOS: more reliable, more fun!

Today we’re launching the newest version of Hangouts for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, ready to download now on iTunes (http://goo.gl/FDOfq). The app has a brand new look and feel, is super easy to navigate, and includes a bunch of performance improvements. You can still make free voice and video calls, of course. Or send a quick photo. But we’re adding a few more features we think you’ll love:

- Stickers: express your mood with fun animated stickers. Think of them as emoji, but even more awesome.

- Video Messages: record and send short videos to everyone in the conversation. Now you can really say what you need to say.

- Location sharing: send a map of your current location with a few simple taps. Great for coordinating the whole gang when you’re ready to hangout IRL.

- Optimized for the iPad: enjoy big, beautiful video calls, and a two-pane conversation view. Perfect for the iPad’s larger screen.

We hope you enjoy the new Hangouts for iOS. As always, your feedback is an important part of making the app better, so give the new version a spin (http://goo.gl/FDOfq) and let us know what you think!

New photo features in Google+ for Android

Today’s update to Google+ for Android is all about photos. In particular, the app includes:

Non-destructive photo editing across devices
Starting today you can start your edits on one device, and continue (or start over) on another. This means you can backup full-resolution photos from your desktop, edit them in seconds on your phone, then add some finishing touches from your tablet. (And you can revert to your originals at any time!) The technical term for this experience is non-destructive editing in the cloud, and we think you'll really enjoy it.

Now when you edit your photos, you’ll have a powerful set of tools (like crop and rotate), 1-touch filters, and Snapseed-inspired enhancements (like Drama, Retrolux, and HDR Scape). Mix and match to make yourpho... more »

Brand new filters and creative tools
Now when you edit your photos, you’ll have a powerful set of tools (like crop and rotate), 1-touch filters, and Snapseed-inspired enhancements (like Drama, Retrolux, and HDR Scape). Mix and match to make your photos look their absolute best.

A single view of all your photos
The new ‘All’ view displays your entire photo library — whether it’s on your current device, or backed up in the cloud. If your library is really large (> 10s of thousands of photos), the app won’t show all your photos initially. But stay tuned, because we’re supporting larger and larger libraries over the next few weeks.

An easy way to browse your photos by date
In addition to search, there’s now another way to find your photos fast. Just swipe through your photos in the ‘All’ view, and look for the scroll bar on the right. Dragging the scroll bar up or down will quickly move you forwards or backwards in time.

The app is rolling out gradually to Google Play (v4.3, http://goo.gl/ruuHW), so check back soon if you don’t see it yet. #googleplusupdate  ___

+Claire Cain Miller of +The New York Times has written a followup piece addressing her use of the term "Ghost Town" (her original piece is "The Plus in Google Plus? It’s Mostly for Google" : http://nyti.ms/1jcLspA)

What are your thoughts about Claire's response? 

We would add that Google+ hasn't been around a full 3 years yet with most people not really joining Facebook until year 3 or 4 of its existence. Time will definitely tell over the next year or +2.

Sometimes I should not think

Maybe that time is now?

I struggle with what I want to show, what I want to do and that makes my thought process all the more harder.

Being the way I am I rely on medication to keep me on the straight and narrow but the price I pay is that the narrow is too tight a road to travel. It causes me to look deep at both myself and what I show to the rest of the world. I look back at the images I have and the narration I pass on, I find I am following a pattern again and again. My landscapes, street portraits, big cat and other animal images are blurring into one and the same.

It's frustrating at times, I feel stifled in what my mind tells me I need to do and what I eventually produce, following the same old course of imagery as other photographers until it becomes hard to tell one from the other.

We are supposed to be creative, to be different but we follow the same format time and time again to please the viewer rather than to sate our own needs for the simple gratification of being liked. To chase along the the corridors of the famous that went before us in the hope that we will too will be eligible to exist there, even if for a brief moment of time.

But that is not being creative, that is following a formula written by those that went before us, it's simply recycling history. The pioneers of this medium have been and gone, Ansel Adams will not be seen again no matter how much we hope.

So if the road I travel on is too narrow maybe the time has come for me to leave it and find another way. Maybe I need to find another outlet that the pioneers have not already discovered? ___

If you're applying for a job or just helping a friend polish up their résumé, Google can help. Search for [resumes], and then click “Images” at the top. You’ll see lots of popular, well-designed résumé formats you can follow, from spare designs that emphasize white space and bold headers, to denser versions that allow for more detailed text.

Have you heard of the party game “As the Crow Flies?” Okay, probably not, since we just made it up. Here’s how it works: next time you’re killing time with friends or family, name two spots on the planet—say, Hawaii and Siberia. Get everyone’s best guess on exactly how far apart they are—2,000 miles? 5,000? 8,000? Then pull up the Google Search app on your phone and ask, “How far is it from Hawaii to Siberia?”, and there's your answer. (This “as the crow flies” distance is a new Google Search feature that works for far-flung locales, beyond what you can drive or walk.) Whoever’s guess was furthest off has to… well, we’ll let you choose their penalty. They pick the next one, and around it goes until everyone’s properly… penalized. Caw! Caw!
