Technology – Google Local Guides

Posted in Blogging, Fun Stuff, Internet with tags , , , , , on 2015/11/16 by rmolby

While at work something caught my eye and I ended up signing up for Google Local Guides, a program that rewards you for helping Google improve their Google Maps information.

I don’t know what yo expect from the program, but ti looks to be quite simple.

Short term, I will update location pictures with either more up-to-date version or more details, but as I gain experience, I will try to provide useful information about the location I am updating, and as I gain experience, I will post about it here.

2013 – Romania

Emil Racoviță's 145th Birthday

Emil Racoviță’s 145th Birthday

Emil Racoviță (Romanian pronunciation: [eˈmil ˈrakovit͡sə]; also spelled Racovitza; 15 November 1868 – 17 November 1947) was a Romanian biologist, zoologist, speleologist, explorer of Antarctica and the first biologist in the world to study the arctic life.

Together with Grigore Antipa, he was one of the most noted promoters of natural sciences in Romania. Racoviță was the first Romanian to have gone on a scientific research expedition to the Antarctic, more than 100 years ago, as well as an influential professor, scholar and researcher. (WikiPedia)

Shichi-go-san 2000

Shichi-Go-San (七五三?, lit. “Seven-Five-Three”) is a traditional rite of passage and festival day in Japan for three- and seven-year-old girls and three- and five-year-old boys, held annually on November 15 to celebrate the growth and well-being of young children. As it is not a national holiday, it is generally observed on the nearest weekend. (WikiPedia)

Horoscope – 2013.01.06

CANCER Jan, 06, 2013

Chaos isn’t necessarily a bad thing, Moonchild. Chaos is defined as a place of great disorder or confusion. Your life may seem that way right now, but that’s probably because everything hasn’t yet fallen into place. There has been some upheaval in your life recently, and the dust hasn’t settled – even though it may have been awhile. The reason for this is that you may not believe it will – or can – settle down. You may fear that things will never be as you envisioned them, due to a fearful mood. But overwhelmingly positive change is imminent. Something wonderful has the power to settle everything into place so that the life you’ve imagined can begin to take root. Remain hopeful and positive.

I can definitely relate to the chaos part. While recovering from my kidney stone health issue, I am getting a chance here and there to sit back and look at the world go by.

We are living in crazy times, in a crazy civilization, where a crazy planet is throwing crazy curve-balls our way.

I don’t know what to make of the horoscope other than to keep sitting back and letting life go by so I can watch and observe, hopefully I can see a glimmer of the “wonderful.”
