Due to the security breach that exposed half a million Google users private data, Google Plus is closing down. Google+ launched in 2011 and promised to be decent competition for rivals Facebook and Twitter. In 2015 it started to wind down most of the consumer functions, citing its failure to catch on backed by their reports that most users only stayed on for 5 seconds or less. I love Google+ and so do many of it's other users! We definitely stay on for more than 5 seconds at a time. One thing is the lack of engagement. You can like and share without feeling so much pressure to comment. It has become a favorite for photographers, who have communities and collections of food, historical sites, people, animals, bugs, fish, the Ocean, or whatever else floats your boat! It's so calming to click on my feed there and see all the pics of nature and animal shares posted in the collections and communities I follow. Someone who speaks a different language can post a comment. Then I can click a button to translate, and even respond back that I agree, the cat refusing to let that pizza slice go IS super cute! Not like I have, but I could if I wanted to. So, because a few private user accounts, that supposedly weren't even used, had been laced with a security breach bug, and Google Vice President Ben Smith says there is a 'low usage' of the social network, it's time for us to say 'Good-Bye Google Plus'?
If our Earth stopped spinning quickly, two important elements of our planet would continue their movements: The crust of the Earth can move hundreds of miles a day and would continue this pattern, and our atmosphere (jet stream, oceans, weather) would wipe the surface of our planet with enormous intensity. Both would clear the landscape and kill all life—or most of it, anyway! I wonder if there's a possibility that this is why there's no Atlantis and Egypt is no longer a jungle. Have we ever swiftly slowed down before? Scientists don't believe so.
I just finished watching The Strangers, starring Liv Tyler, on Netflix. My first and only time watching it was ten years ago. Back then, I had given it kind of low marks and hadn't seen it since. When I re-watched it, I still got the same feeling that it was too much of a classy, adult version of The Charles Manson Family taking over at Camp Crystal Lake on Friday the 13th. I've always been a huge Jason fan and in my opinion, Jason Voorhees and his mom would have run through them and taken the Camp back, of course! The Strangers leaves me with too many unanswered questions, at the end especially. I feel other horror films at least TRY to give clues away! I never got that "AHA" moment, there was no carrot dangling, and no "There's going to be a sequel" when it ended, so finding there was a sequel was a pleasant surprise for me.
