Email services with .email extensions

The internet now has this wonderful new domain extension so people can have email addresses that end in a .EMAIL instead of .INFO or .COM. What’s great about these new top-level domains is that they just make sense.

Here’s a real life scenario. You meet Joe and he gives you his email JOE@EXAMPLE.XYZ — and you didn’t quite hear what he said after the dot. Or, you forgot it. You don’t have to be guessing and asking yourself, was it .INFO, or .NET, or .ORG, or .CO?? When Joe uses a .EMAIL extension, he has an unforgettable email like JOE@EXAMPLE.EMAIL.

This list has email services I could find so far with a .EMAIL ending. Please add a comment with other ones you know of or find.

How to share a web page to Google+ from your browser?

It should be as easy as one click to share a web page from your web browser on your social media feed. Right? Who wants to copy and paste a link from the address bar? What average person (who is not doing social media as part of their job) wants to create a short URL and then copying and pasting twice to share? Ugh.

Share Menu on macOS

It’s easy on the Mac if you’re sharing to Twitter or Facebook. In macOS, the Share button IL_shareButton_osx  (first released in OS X Mountain Lion, August 2015), makes it really easy to share on social media—only to Twitter and Facebook—and other macOS apps that can be added and integrated.

But what about other social networks? Instagram and Pinterest pretty popular. The Share Menu says that there are “third-party extensions to customize your Mac.” Sure there are all kinds of app extensions, but I’ve not been able to find the extensions that let you share to other social networks.

How to share on Google Chrome?

The Google Chrome browser became the most popular web browser in May 2016, according to netmarketshare.com‘s Browser Market Share chart. But, have you noticed that there’s not an easy and fast way to share to Google+ in that browser? You would think.. and, it wasn’t until recently (in version 45) that Google Chrome added a menu item to Share, under the File menu. How long has social media been around? Surprising?

I searched high and low for a Google Chrome Extension to share on multiple social networks, especially the popular ones. There are plenty of extensions that can share to 1 or 2 social networks; and some that can share on social media more widely. I did not want to install multiple extensions, like one for each social network.

And, I wanted an extension that’d be work similarly on both Google Chrome and Firefox. I use multiple web browsers occasionally.

I found 2 that are more robust browser extensions for sharing on social: AddToAny and Shareaholic.

3 More Questions that I Would Share

Why was Google so late to add the share function in their most popular web browser?

What’s the future of Google+?

Do you know of another way that’s faster and easier to share?

Poll Results: How Many Christians Watch R-Rated Movies

via christiancinema.com and democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php 

Christians Watching Rated R Movies According to ChristiaNet Poll

June 25,2007 /Christian Newswire/ — ChristiaNet.com, the world’s largest Christian portal with twelve million monthly page loads, asked participants in a recent poll, “How often do you watch rated R movies?” Out of 649 Christians polled, 61% responded that they “never” watch rated R movies. As one participant said, “I’m not interested in anything that does not honor God.” According to Bill Cooper, President of ChristiaNet, “I’m encouraged that the vast majority of Christians seek to put God first when making entertainment choices.”

Top reasons why the majority of Christians polled don’t watch rated R movies can be divided into three categories. Many Believers feel watching such shows is not Christ-like. As a Christian they believe they should be glorifying God with their time and talents. While others say these types of entertainment just don’t interest them. Finally, some Christians believe that watching rated R movies would fill their minds with bad images that are tempting and eventually lead to sin.

Eighteen percent of those polled, actively view rated R movies every month. Even though this is the smallest group, this number is too high in a Christian Worldview. Reasons for the frequency of watching such shows include boredom, watching rated R movies purely for the entertainment value or they like action movies that get the R rating for violence. As one viewer said, “I like to watch movies just to pass the time.” Given the decline of moral values in churches today, one would hope these “Christians” would fill their idle time with reading the Bible or building a relationship with God.

Twenty-one percent of Christians surveyed stated that they only watch rated R movies a few times a year. This begs the question, “Why would any Christian watch an R rated movie?” In this group, Believers cited they have watched “Schindler’s List” and “The Passion Of The Christ.” This group made it clear that these movies were rated for the intense images of the circumstances surrounding the content of the story.

Watching The Laundromat Documentary 2013

Where can you watch The Laundromat Documentary, an award-winning film created by Vanessa Yee? The answer is not yet known.

About the Laundromat Documentary

IMDB has a page for The Laundromat Documentary. There is a Facebook page and a Kickstarter page that has information about the making of The Laundromat Documentary; and there used to be a community website. Vanessa Yee’s description of the film:

The Laundromat is my thesis film at UCLA’s film school. In this doc, I hope to begin breaking the Asian American community’s cycle of silence and shame. When people are unable to find a space to take care of their “dirty laundry”, this film will empower different generations to address the prevailing silence and find they are not alone in emotional struggle and shameful circumstances.

People Love Movie Trailers

There’s this trailer for The Laundromat Documentary with a few clips strung together—

Daily Bruin wrote about the film in its 2011 article— Washing Away the Silence: Documentary “˜The Laundromat’ explores Asian American stigmas surrounding mental health.

Podcast about Asian American mental health

On SoundCloud there is The Bull and the Badger Podcast, which is “an offshoot of Vanessa’s documentary called The Laundromat. April and Vanessa started this podcast to demonstrate by example that talking about mental health issues, especially ones specific to the Asian American community, does not have to be scary or sad – it can be fun and enlightening and interesting.”

Postscript

I know I’m a few years late in tracking this down. I’ve heard good chatter about it. I think it’d be a very valuable film to be made available for on-demand viewing. I’ll contact the producer and see if there’s more info to share.

Like the Facebook Page for Updates

Okay, I’ve contacted them via the Facebook page for The Laundromat Documentary and got a quick response—

Hi DJ, unfortunately, my film is not yet available to view online. We’re working on a plan for that in the coming year, so if you’ve already liked this page, then you’ll receive an update once it becomes more widely available. … Thanks for your interest and hope to update the page with good news in 2018.

 

skype screen sharing not working mac

I was on a Skype video conference call recently, and was ready to do a screen share to talk about a spreadsheet on my screen. I went to my menu bar and couldn’t find the Screen Share command any more. This is on a Mac, a MacBook Air, to be specific.

What happened?

I’m using Skype version 8.12.0.14 on Mac OSX 10.11.6 (15G18013).

After I searched and searched, eventually found the answer in Skype support.

The Share Screen command is now under the (+) symbol at the bottom of the screen, next to the video button, the hangup button, and the mute button—going from right to left. Not real intuitive for some.

I’ll add a screen shot when I can find someone on Skype to test it out with me.
