    My father was a Tuskegee Airman, one of the first African-American military aviators in the U.S. military. He got his wings in 1944 and stayed in the Army for 30 years. When I think of him—and all the other veterans I grew up knowing—I’m reminded of the unique characteristics they shared: their innate courage, sense of purpose, and their ability to lead under pressure. Most remarkable to me, though, is their belief in the power of sacrificing and fighting for something bigger than yourself. For everyone who has served our country, I join 1,000+ members of the Google Veterans Network in…

  • Google Earth imagery updates 2009 to date

    Timothy Whitehead
    24 Nov 2014 | 1:31 am
    In the past, Google would publish a network linked KML file that showed the outlines of imagery releases, including all historical releases going back to 2009. However, early this year they discontinued it and instead have been publishing a map on the Maps Gallery that only shows the latest release. Also, other than taking a screenshot of the maps, there was no way to save them for later viewing. Now Google have released a map on the Maps Gallery that once again shows us historical releases. Note that it does not currently include the two latest updates from November 3rd, 2014 and November…
  • Hawaii’s Kilauea lava flows

    Timothy Whitehead
    20 Nov 2014 | 11:42 pm
    The imagery from Google’s November 8th update is now available in historical imagery. A significant proportion of the imagery was not put into the default imagery, so was not accessible until now. The location we will look at today is Pāhoa, Hawaii. The default imagery contains a mixture of images, with the most recent addition at first appearing to be cut out in rather odd shapes. But now we have the full original photo in historical imagery we can see that the reason for this is the large amount of cloud cover in the photo. The reason the image was added at all is because of an…
  • Large artwork in Google Earth

    Timothy Whitehead
    20 Nov 2014 | 1:36 am
    Yesterday we talked about large artwork using GPS tracks. Although the artists did travel to the locations involved in their artwork, the record they left, and thus the actual art, was digital rather than physical. There are, however, some very big works of art that are visible in Google Earth. Here are a few of them. Desert Breath by D.A.S.T Arteam. This is the smallest and oldest, but has lasted well and can be seen in both current imagery as well as historical imagery. Read more about it in this post Mundi Man or Eldee Man by Ando Drawn in the Mundi Mundi Plains in Australia using a…
  • The World’s Largest Marriage Proposal

    Timothy Whitehead
    19 Nov 2014 | 1:36 am
    Back in 2006 we looked at a few marriage proposals visible in satellite imagery. Then in 2008 we saw a marriage proposal in Street View. Tokyo artist, Yassan lays claim to the world’s largest marriage proposal written using GPS tracks shown in Google Earth. You can see some of his work here and watch a YouTube video about him below: Yassan is not the only person to think of writing with GPS tracks. Nick Newcomen created some even bigger writing by this method, which we looked at in 2010. The post The World’s Largest Marriage Proposal appeared first on Google Earth Blog.
  • Freefalling music video – ode to Google Earth

    Timothy Whitehead
    18 Nov 2014 | 1:27 am
    From October last year, Google stopped accepting user created 3D models into Google Earth. Instead, they have been rolling out automatically generated 3D imagery. Both the 3D ‘Earth View’ in Google Maps and the mobile version of Google Earth do not show the user created models – sticking to the automatically generated 3D mesh for some cities, and the 3D terrain (from various sources) for the rest of the earth’s surface. Australian band Midnight Juggernaugts have recently released a music video created using Google Earth. In their words on the YouTube page: The video is…

    Real Estate Made Simple

  • Factors To Consider Before Acquiring An Investment Property

    Henry Mccarthy
    18 Nov 2014 | 9:44 pm
    One of the major concerns to potential investors is to ensure they have a sound business idea that makes sense. This business of flipping or letting out property seems to be a tricky concept that only a few understand. The number of clients out there that are looking to buy these properties has diminished substantially over the past couple of months due to several factors including global recession. That does not mean flipping or renting a year or two ago did not make sense neither does it imply it will not make sense perhaps two or more years to come. This calls for knowing exactly how to…
  • HMO Investing FAQs Answered!

    Henry Mccarthy
    12 Nov 2014 | 5:42 pm
    Investing in an HMO is in right now, because of the high yields. If you want to jump on this bandwagon, here is a simple list of FAQs on how to get your property HMO ready. What is an HMO? The Housing Act of 2004 describes several types of rental properties that could fall under the term HMO or House in Multiple Occupation: An entire house or flat which is let to 3 or more tenants, who form 2 or more households, and who share a kitchen, bathroom, or toilet. A house which has been converted entirely into bedsits or other non-self-contained accommodation, and which is let to 3 or more tenants…
  • Benefits of Investing In Income Properties

    Henry Mccarthy
    6 Nov 2014 | 7:22 pm
    Income properties are properties intended for income generation and they can either be categorised into commercial real estate or residential rental properties. It should be noted that when a person acquires a home BMV (Below Market Value) and puts it under renovation then resells it at a higher price, then that is not considered an income property as its purpose isn’t to generate long term passive income but instead to produce a gain through a one-off sale. An income property is that which an investor builds or purchases for instance a HMO (House With Multiple Occupation) and lets it…
  • 4 Big Renovations for Big Returns

    Henry Mccarthy
    4 Nov 2014 | 4:57 pm
    Want to add value to an investment property? Thinking about ‘flipping’ a property? Here are some common ways to make money with big projects that offer large returns. 1. Lofty Ambitions Does your property have a loft? If so, you could be sitting on a cash pot. Loft conversions can yield huge returns with both buy to let and renovate-to-sell projects. Planning permission isn’t needed if you’re only adding Velux windows, although adding a ‘dormer’ window is often the best way to increase the standing room in the conversion. That requires planning permission,…
  • 4 Ways to Work Estate Agents to your Advantage

    Henry Mccarthy
    4 Nov 2014 | 2:52 pm
    Estate Agents are not the most popular of people. In fact, it’s not unusual to hear them compared unfavourably to criminals and rodents. Thankfully the truth is a little less clear cut, and there are many honest agents working in the industry. Here is how to deal with estate agents so that you don’t fall into any of their traps, and so that they make money for you as much as they do for themselves. 1. Don’t Ask Silly Questions If you ever find the words ‘is this house/flat worth it’ passing out of your mouth and towards the ears of a nearby estate agent, you are…

This URL sends you to the old Google interface: https://www.google.com/webhp?as_qdr=all. You can bookmark it if you miss the black bar.Another way to bring back the black bar is to use the "noj" parameter like this: https://www.google.com/?noj=1.

You’re probably wondering why you can’t just use an ad blocking add-on rather than pay Google, content isn’t always free.  Although there are people in this world who are quite willing to produce content for free, it is never actually free.  Production of just about everything, has it’s cost.
