Jens “Google Plus Yoda” Graikowski580,059_*PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU CLICK ON "GOING" OR "MAYBE"!*_ It's race weekend again! Let's hang out! Here is how it works: ➢ We all watch the race on our own individual TV sets. There is not going to be a race broadcast in the hangout for several reasons. ▸ A broadcast would take over the hangouts audio and would make it impossible for us to talk. ▸ It means, we can all watch the race in the language we prefer (in my case it's German). ▸ The broadcast would take up a hangout spot. I'd rather have one of you guys there. ▸ Since it's a HoA (Hangout on Air) we'd have copyright issues. ➢ I'll invite participants in two steps. ▸ About an hour before the race starts (find out here, when exactly that will be in your time zone: http://bit.ly/16HoQeb) I will invite all of those of the _Google+ Paddock Club_ ... ▸ Just before the race I will invite my _Formula 1_ circle. *Get your _Google+ Paddock Club_ pass! ...* So if you want to make sure, that you get a spot, clicking on _"Going"_ will get you into the _Google+ Paddock Club_ and clicking on _"Maybe"_ into the _Formula 1 Circle_!

martin shervington1,349,766Have you heard of a chap called Kevin MacCleod? Well, you almost certainly have heard his work... It has been estimated that in the region of 800,000 videos on YouTube have included music he has created. 800,000! And so many of those videos have thousands upon thousands of views. He has over 1000 entries on IMBD as the composer the music for movies as well. WOW. Kevin is not only a powerhouse who has transformed how people access music through a creative commons licence, he is one heck of a nice fellow. We met in a hangout the other day and he has agreed to an interview on everything from why 'giving it away' works, about his most successful tracks (will a quick taste if we are lucky), and all about the documentary they are making on him as well. Should be a lot of fun.  Hope to see you then!Interview with legendary Composer Kevin MacCleod, the chap from Incompetech!2013-05-08 20:00:0022  
Jens “Google Plus Yoda” Graikowski580,059Yeeehaaaw! It's Race weekend again and we are going to hang out! Loads has happened in this #Formula1 season already, some of it good, some not so good. Our _Formula 1 Race Hangouts_ have been created to discuss those happenings with birds-of-a-feather and to watch the races together. Last year, when I started with those hangouts they were rather poorly frequented. This year things seem to have settled a bit at G+ and I'm really happy with the turn out. We've always had several, highly knowledgeable #F1 buffs in attendance and I can only imagine what is going to happen once the European races start. I therefore invite everybody who wants to join in with the following system: ▸ The race starts at 1 pm GMT. About an hour before (find out here, when exactly that will be in your time zone: http://bit.ly/17JhW5Z) I will invite all of those of the _Google+ Paddock Club_ ... ▸ Just before the race I will invite my _Formula 1_ circle. You can request admission to the _Google+ Paddock Club_ by clicking on _Going_ and to the _Formula 1_ circle by clicking on _Maybe_. We all watch the race on our own individual TV sets. There is not going to be a race broadcast in the hangout for several reasons. ▸ A broadcast would take over the hangouts audio and would make it impossible for us to talk. ▸ It means, we can all watch the race in the language we prefer (in my case it's German). ▸ The broadcast would take up a hangout spot. I'd rather have one of you guys there. ▸ Since this is a HoA (Hangout on Air) we'd risk copyright infractions. Hope to see you all on Sunday and *Please share this event!* Greez, +Jens Graikowski  Formula 1 Race Hangout - Grand Prix of Bahrain2013-04-21 13:00:0023  
Jens “Google Plus Yoda” Graikowski580,059HANGOUT FOR THE FIRST F1 GRAND PRIX OF THE SEASON Last year we did several "Formula 1 Race hangouts" and though I'd have wished attendance to have been a bit higher, we had great fun with the few who did come. This year (after G+ has settled down a bit) I hope that we get a few more peeps to watch the races together with us. Here is how it works: ➢ We all watch the race on our own individual TV sets. There is not going to be a race broadcast in the hangout for several reasons. ▸ A broadcast would take over the hangouts audio and would make it impossible for us to talk. ▸ It means, we can all watch the race in the language we prefer (in my case it's German). ▸ The broadcast would take up a hangout spot. I'd rather have one of you guys there. ➢ I'll invite participants in two steps. ▸ About an hour before the race starts (find out here, when exactly that will be in your time zone: http://bit.ly/Ynm5nT) I will invite all of those of the "Google+ Paddock Club".  ▸ Just before the race I will invite my Formula 1 circle. GET YOU GOOGLE+ PADDOCK CLUB PASS! So if you want to make sure, that you get a spot, join the "G+PC"! To join the club you can either click on "Going" at this event or +1 the second comment at this post: http://bit.ly/ZfYUhL. Either way you'll be added to the "G+PC" circle.

Magnetic wheel
Does this really work and if it does, why can't it be used commercially?

This is a kind of a #perpetualmotion machine. Well, we all know that they don't exist. So, how does this work? Is it a trick? And if it isn't, why can't larger versions of this be used to produce #freeenergy? #Zeroemissions, so it's good for the #environment and no running costs. It must be a trick, right? Maybe somebody more knowledgeable than me can enlighten us?

Listen to Prince online
It's almost impossible to find any classic Prince songs on the usual streaming services, but tidido.com seems to have them all.

If you are like me you'll spend the night listening to #Prince songs. That'll prove difficult though if you haven't got the stuff on record or CD. As I just learned tonight, Prince was on a war path with streaming services and pulled most of his stuff from #iTunes, #GooglePlayMusic, #Spotify and Co. (read more about it here: http://goo.gl/24p4lH ). But never you fret. +Jens Graikowski​​​ is coming to the rescue.

If something good is coming out of this sad night it's me stumbling over #Tidido. They seem to have most of the classic Prince songs. I'm not sure how their service usually performs, but tonight they seem to be breaking up a lot. That might be due to everybody and his dog listening to Prince tonight or due to my crap internet connection, though. I've tried some other artists and they seem to work fine, so it's probably the former.

Anyway, I linked to my favourite Prince album, #PurpleRain. Enjoy and don't be ashamed to shead a tear or two tonight.

He was one of my great idols
Prince dead at only 57.

So many great ones are going. I can't believe that Prince is now one of them. I grew up with his music, was a great fan. Just rewatched his movie "Purple Rain" a few weeks ago, because I felt nostalgic and enjoyed it as much as the other fifteen, twenty times I've seen it. I've always considered those who go over the top with their emotions when an artist dies they never met a bit weird and now I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes. R.I.P. Prince.

Edit: Wtf is going on? I can't find any of his older stuff neither on Google Play Music nor on YouTube! :-O

Google Maps Timeline
Find out where you've been at any given moment in time.

Now, this is not exactly new, but when I first heard about it in summer 2015 I wouldn't have thought how often I'm using this nifty little #GoogleMaps feature. If I ever need to find out where I've been at any particular moment in time the #GoogleMapsTimeline will soon help me out.

Launch your #Google #Maps app, tap on menu (the three horizontal lines in the left upper corner) and then on "Your timeline". With the help of a calendar you can choose any day you like and Google will tell you where you went when. A bit frightening, but also amazing and very helpful in all kinds of use cases. You can turn off the service if you're not comfortable with it or delete certain days or the entire history.

Panono 360° camera
108MP processors (in total). That should make for impressive photographs.

Though I'm pretty happy with my Ricoh Theta S, the image quality leaves plenty of room for improvement. That shouldn't be a problem with this #camera by #Panono. It sports 36 cameras with 108MB in total. It is slightly out of my price range though.

___Panono 360° camera
108MP processors (in total). That should make for impressive photographs.

Though I'm pretty happy with my Ricoh Theta S, the image quality leaves plenty of room for improvement. That shouldn't be a problem with this #camera by #Panono. It sports 36 cameras with 108MB in total. It is slightly out of my price range though.

Passengers get kicked off planes for being Muslims
This trend is pretty worrying.

I was just going through my stream and found this article about a passenger who was kicked off a plane for speaking #Arabic on the phone ( http://goo.gl/SvfUhP ). I thought, alright, that's a bit extreme, but surely that's an isolated incident. Just a few posts further down I found this (
http://goo.gl/KmY4TI ). A #Muslim women kicked off the plane for changing seats! What caught my attention was, that it was the same airline, #SouthwestAirlines. In a statement regarding the second incident the airline said,

"We are not in the business of removing passengers from flights without reason, our goal is to get each one of our Customers to their final destination safely. We are responsible for the comfort of all passengers and do not tolerate discrimination of any kind."... more »

Well, you could've fooled me. Running a Google search ( https://goo.gl/FN1gGn ) on the subject it turns out that this is far from being an isolated incident and not limited to that particular airline either.

I will block everybody who posts that damn' rainbow image!

For a few days now people find it funny to post a mile long multi coloured image. Apart from the fact that it takes half an hour to scroll past on my phone it also seems to make Google+ crash. Since after several days of that crap I fail to find that funny anymore I will instantly block anybody who posts that image!

Google Now Gets It Right in a Sensitive Moment

After seeing the disastrous results of Microsoft's Tay bot turning into a sexist, racist Nazi after a short time on Twitter, it is wonderful to see exactly the opposite kind of behavior from Google Now. A sensitive female voice offered condolences on behalf of Google for the loss of a user's father as he asked to view photos from the period when his father had died. The user said it was done in such a sensitive manner that it brought tears to his eyes.___The apple doesn't fall far from the tree

These are drone images of what is left of Homs, a city in western Syria and the capital of the Homs Governorate. After 5 years of civil war large parts of Syria look like that.

Capture videos and take screenshots on your Samsung Gear VR
Oculus added some really nifty features with its last Gear VR update.

I recently got into reviewing #VirtualReality apps for my good G+mate +Russell Deasley​​ and his website http://www.virtual-reality-shop.co.uk . I'm only writing the stuff and Russel does the video reviews, because up to now it was only possible to capture videos on the #SamsungGearVR with a #Samsung Note and I "only" have a #SamsungGalaxyS6Edge . Since the last #Oculus update this has dramatically changed. You can now take screenshots and even capture videos via the Oculus menu!

So, how does it work?

So, how does it work?
It honestly couldn't be any easier. Clip your phone into the #GearVR and once you are on the home screen (the phone in the screenshot below), or in any VR app for that matter, press and hold the back button. The Oculus main menu will come up. You have a few options in the middle, like reorienting the view, adjusting audio volume and such and to the right you have two buttons; "Settings" (which you are in) and "Utilities". Once you choose that, you can see the options "Take Screenshot" and "Capture Video".

Take screenshot
Choose "Take Screenshot" in the "Utilities" menu. Oculus will jump back to your last screen. That can be anything. The Oculus home screen or any app. On the top right you'll see a little red flashing light. Just like with a timer on any photo camera this will start flashing faster and a screenshot will be taken.

Capture video
Choose "Capture Video" in the "Utilities" menu. Again Oculus will jump back to the last screen and will start recording anything that happens on there immediately. To stop the recording long-press the back button.

View screenshots and videos
Once you take your phone out of the Gear VR you will find your screenshots and videos in your phones gallery. The interesting bit is that when you play back the video it won't be a dual screen like any normal screen capture software would record, but a single screen, which of course looks so much better.

If Trump and Clinton are the best we can do, Go home, Democracy, you’re drunk
How, exactly, did we get here, with the two least likable and most ethically compromised candidates who ever shambled the earth as our two parties’ “prohibitive favorites?” I’m going with: ‘nothing less than a systemic failure of democracy.’

Of course it's not too late to defeat the hijacking of our democracy by the rich elites. We can still reclaim our nation from their clutches, but we need Bernie Sanders to do it, and you can help make this happen. We NEED you to help make this happen!

While the working class is undoubtedly worried about the economy, we already know many will not vote in their economic best interests. They vote for the candidate who promises a return to dignity, and it’s not because they’re dumb. It’s because they care about their dignity more than they care about their finances.___Interesting read

My favourite football games
Loads of everything. Brilliant long passes, exciting rushes, punt return touchdown, you name it they had it.

When I was in my teens I had my first contact with #AmericanFootball. More than 6,000 American GIs where stationed in the German town where I then lived (almost 1/6th of the entire population). We had a really good relationship with the US forces and they got us interested in their sports too. A friend of mine got so hooked, that he got himself an American TV set from one of the GIs and with that he could receive the American military TV station which broadcasted loads of football games for the soldiers.

I lost touch with my friend and with the sport. Only recently my interest was rekindled when I visited my brother-in-law in Wales last Xmas and I had the chance to watch a game on his Sky Sports satellite receiver. Ever since that day I'm watching at least 4-5 games a week on YouTube. Actually I'm having trouble now finding any that I haven't watched yet.

My favourite two so far are the #NewYorkGiants vs. #NewOrleansSaints in 2015 ( https://youtu.be/Lx5ExdV5dUg ) and the #DenverBroncos vs. #DallasCowboys in 2013 ( https://youtu.be/C6jS-7Pm0rQ ). I love high score games and those two are 101 and 99 points respectively. I won't tell you which team had how many and who won, in case you haven't seen those games yet. Both were decided in the last seconds. Both were frightfully exciting.

BB-8 Papercraft
For all of you who like the little Star Wars droid.

Paper models used to be a huge hobby of mine. I sort of lost touch with it a bit, but this model is going to revive my old passion. Spheres are incredibly difficult to do with paper, but it's not like I'm a total beginner. I've done scores of paper models and know most, if not all, the tricks. This is going to be a challenge, but I'll enjoy it, I'm sure.

Circles are back!

Old #GooglePlus hands like me originally built their G+ experience on circles. Though I do like the new collections approach as well I was a bit disappointed, that circles seemed to be on their way out. It looked to me like #Google tried to slowly phase them out. Seems I was wrong though. Circles are back!

May the Plus be with you,

G+ Android Update 7.4.0
We're starting to roll out another update to the Google+ Android app today. This is our fifth Android update this year and includes several bug fixes and two new features:

* 18 bugs fixed
* 7 accessibility issues addressed
* Ability to pin posts on your profile
* Quicker access to the "Display Circle Streams" setting on the Following screen
* If you have the "Display Circle Streams" setting on, you can now switch between Circle streams from the header of the Google+ home screen on Android

As always, additional Android updates are on the way, so please keep the ideas & issues coming by using our Send Feedback menu item. Thanks~___Circles are back!

Announcing Google+ Create
A pretty unique update today… we’re launching Google+ Create, a new community program that gives top content creators on Google+ the recognition and audience they deserve.

You only need to browse our featured Collections page (https://plus.google.com/collections/featured) to see the breadth and depth of content already on Google+ and with the Create program we hope to get even better at connecting people around their interests. Like the Local Guides (Google Maps) and Creator Academy (YouTube) programs, Google+ Create will give our most inspiring creators unique benefits and resources to be even more successful on Google+ including: verified identities, early access to product features, feedback forums, and more.

For more details, check out Daniel’s post: https://plus.google.com/+DanielRaynaudGoog/posts/SxD8myCrzbm___Just signed up

And it's going to be the same, even if Sanders should make it into the oval office (and I'm not very hopeful in that respect). The GOP will block him from doing anything and will then say "We told you so. His ideas are unrealistic.".
