Full-Screen Profile Pics, Return of New Posts Indicator Now on Google+ Web
Another update has come out for the web preview, and it’s big!

Since the release of the new Google+ back in November, lots of improvements and fixes have been coming out at a fast pace, to the delight of us G+ fans. This time it’s no exception, so let’s jump in and see what this newest update brings.

Full-Screen Profile Photo Gallery

For starters, you can now view profile photos of a certain person or page in a full-screen gallery. To do this, click on the circular profile picture where you’ll then be taken to a lightbox, the same as what you’d see when viewing a post’s photo.

Following Screen Update

If you want to find out who’s in your Following circle, you’ll now notice all the members, together with their profile images, laid out in grids across the screen. Although this saves from dong an extra click, I still miss the People layout in the classic Google+. It’s almost impossible to work on circle management in the new UI, no longer being able to drag and drop profiles and pages.

For now, it’s a step in the right direction, but I hope they’ll bring back the functionality of the old Google+.

New Un-Muting Capabilities

Have you ever wondered who you’ve muted previously and wanted to un-mute them? Now you can view who those profiles and pages are by heading to Settings > Activity Log > People You Muted, where un-muting them is now just a click away. (Did Luke Wroblewski actually mute Zuck?!)

Return of the New Posts Indicator

As an added bonus, the new posts indicator makes a much-awaited comeback! This time it’s adorned in Google+ red and located at the top of the stream, underneath the red header. Personally, I’d rather see it at the bottom a la the Android and iOS apps, but I’m happy to see it back nevertheless. (Next up, hovercards?…)

Apart from these, you now have improved people search results and 101 bug fixes.

So if you’re still on the classic Google+, now might be a good time to take a second look at the web preview because you gotta admit, the new version keeps getting better with every update that comes out.

you know you’re messed up when you’re looking forward to joining a lettuce club

Please explain

okay so the school i want to go to has this thing called a lettuce club. In the lettuce club, you meet once a year and, in this meeting, you have an hour to eat an entire head of lettuce (sometimes there’s ranch, mostly there isn’t). whoever eats the lettuce the fastest is the leader of the lettuce club and has to set up the meeting for next year. 

apparently it’s supposed to make you hate lettuce but honestly that’s just a small side effect for one of the weirdest clubs i’ve heard of in my entire life

…what does one do in the lettuce club?😨 besides race to eat lettuce.

no that’s the entire meaning of the lettuce club

But surely it’s not necessary? Like, lettuce is objectively bad and pointless? Who needs to do this to dislike it? 

they do it for the kicks and the sheer power of eating a head of lettuce in less than an hour. the kid who wins gets their name out there.

my friend told me that she never wants to see lettuce again, though.

here’s a pic from here of the club and the school

They also have a fight club and a club where they do shakespearian renditions of star wars movies

Reddit Socialism AMA
"Why socialism is back on the world's agenda."
 
Prof. Wolff will be doing an AMA on Reddit and answering your questions.
 
Background:  Capitalism's crisis since the 2008 meltdown has generated worsening economic inequality, political instability, cultural and social tensions. Not surprisingly, ever more people have become critics of capitalism looking for something better. Not surprisingly they encounter the variety of socialisms as possible, preferable alternatives. In the US especially, the (re)discovery of socialisms is now well underway. The campaign of Bernie Sanders is both cause and effect of that (re)discovery.

From being called a “worthless bitch” who “needs a shock collar” and “seems castrating,” it’s hard to overstate how much sexist bullshit Hillary Clinton has had to put up with in the media.

Like I am Team Bernie 1 million percent. But this shit really needs to fucking stop.

100% agreed.
