Pat Kight13,860@113977984500465768287  said she wants the Scavengers under her tree for Christmas. Let's do it! Drop by, say hi to the friends you've made during the Autumn Scavenger Hunt, share a few photos of your own festivities. (Invite going out to the Autumn Scavengers circle, but I've enabled the "on air" feature so folks from past Scavenger events can see it, and you can invite other Scavengers).Scavengers Holiday Party2013-12-24 21:00:00151G+
Science on Google+369,591Posterside Hangouts is a new Hangouts On Air, which is hosted by the Science on Google+ Community (http://goo.gl/uhJCN). The main goal of this HOA series is to recreate a poster session-like atmosphere here on G+, so researchers can present their recent findings. Presentations will be grouped by discipline and individual presentations will last approximately 10 – 15 minutes.Do you have a recent conference presentation, manuscript, or book that you would like to share with the Google+ community? Do you want to give your undergraduate or graduate students practice presenting their research? If yes, then let us know by filling out this short form: http://goo.gl/e0KPhE.================================Psychology Talks for Posterside Hangouts #1, Authors (Affiliations)When audition dominates vision: Evidence from cross-modal statistical learning+Chris Robinson (The Ohio State University at Newark)Automatic selection of eye tracking variables in visual categorization for adults and infants+Samuel Rivera (The Ohio State University at Columbus)Foreign accent does not influence cognitive judgments+Andre L.

Research examining interference effects shows that auditory input often interferes with processing of visual input in young children (i.e., auditory dominance effect), whereas visual input often interferes with auditory processing in adults (i.e., visual dominance effect). The current study used a cross-modal statistical learning task to examine modality dominance in adults. Participants ably learned auditory and visual statistics when auditory and visual sequences were presented unimodally and when auditory and visual sequences were correlated during training. However, increasing task demands resulted in an important asymmetry: Increased task demands attenuated visual statistical learning, while having no effect on auditory statistical learning. These findings are consistent with auditory dominance effects reported in young children and have important implications for our understanding of how sensory modalities interact while learning the structure of cross-modal informationScience on Google+ Posterside Hangouts #12013-08-13 02:30:0099G+

Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/1)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca   #sharedcircles   #circles   #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:25:36432632958CC G+

Dustin W. Stout34,995The Most Interesting Ladies On Google+!Part 5 of my #circlesplosion  series has finally arrived! If you're not familiar with Circlesplosion be sure to read about it here: dustn.tv/circlesplosion/After sorting through 500 comments and over 1,000+mentions I have finished curating this circle of the Most Interesting Ladies on Google+! And by "ladies" I mean it in the highest regard with the utmost respect. These are women who are exceptional examples of leadership, inspiration, encouragement, entertainment, and just plain fun! This list was carefully curated with intentional attention to thoughtful recommendations, interaction, and engagement. Though I don't know all of them (yet) I am confident that they are absolutely worth adding to your own circles! I will also not that this circle is incredibly diverse-- artists, doctors, business women, entrepreneurs, bloggers, crafters, geeks (self-proclaimed), writers, trainers, and women who are awesome for a whole lot of reasons. What to do with this circleAdd this circle and take some time to monitor the stream over the next week. Find those that you really connect with or are inspired by and add them to another of your relevant circles. Do so until you believe you've added everyone of relevance and interest to you and then delete this circle (unless of course you just want to keep it-- that's fine too). I hope you make some great connections, I know I have already. And be sure to let me know in the comments below what you'd like to see the next #circlesplosion   project to be. :D #sharedcircles   #ns  2014-02-21 18:43:192589983129CC G+

I am looking for a new style, but not sure this would work with curly hair....

If tomato isn't for you, hairstylist Hiro at the Osaka salon, Trick Store, has many more options, including a lady bug, a giraffe, loads of intricate braids and artistic shavings, and just about every colour under the sun (and some I'm not sure are normally seen by humans here on Earth....).

The hypersnake versus the moiré eel

This animated gif is cool, but here's something much cooler:

http://wry.me/hacking/moire-eel.html

It starts out intense... and then keeps getting more so. 

You can control the shape of the little rectangles by moving your cursor over the screen.  Try to keep your eye on just one little rectangle!  It moves up and down, not very fast... but sometimes it's impossible to keep your eye on it, because all the rectangles together produce patterns that grab your attention.  These are called moiré patterns. 

I think the 'hypersnake' here is attention-grabbing because your brain has parts that are good at detecting snakes even before you are conscious of it.  Your amygdala is one of these parts:

Poisonous, Not Venomous, Birds

The words poisonous and venomous are often used interchangeably, but they mean very different things. Before we get to birds, let's get definitions out of the way:

Poisonous: ingestion, absorption, or inhalation of a harmful substance
Venomous: injection of a harmful substance.

The comic by Bird and Moon covers it quite well in fun and simple terms, but what about the poisonous birds mentioned?

In Papa New Guinea, there are birds the locals know as "rubbish birds" as they cannot be consumed. The reasoning? They're toxic, and therefore bitter to taste at minimum. They are the pitohui and the ifrita, and their feathers and flesh contains the poison homobatrachotoxin. As it were, it is the exact same poison that makes golden poison arrow frogs the most deadly in the world to... more »

Spreading the Germs of Science
Science communication at the Quarantine Tent

Science writer Pippa Wysong usually communicates science in print, but recently she's taken a more hands on approach to science communication. And some of those hands are covered with smallpox blisters!

Starting last year, Pippa has organized the Quarantine Tent - an immersive exhibition where passers-by can talk to people "suffering" from all manor of diseases.

There's Smallpox, aged 20 in 1921, with the blisters on his face and hands from the disease he contracted visiting family in Ottawa. And there's Diphtheria, aged 19 in 1913 (same year there was an outbreak in Toronto), who lost her kid sister a few days ago, and has another younger brother struggling with the disease. And there's also Polio, HPV, Measles, 1918 flu and... more »

The Spaghetti String Special was selling well, but the Branes in Boson Sauce was less popular.

Of course, physics isn't the only appropriate field for the caption, others already have suggested captions linked to biology and environmental science as well...

Manya, Radioactive Passion

On July 4, I was traveling, so with a day late I pay tribute to the memory of Marie Curie (7 November 1867-4 July 1934), who passed away eighty years ago.

Marie (called Manya in the family, when she was a little girl) was a passionate and strong-willed woman, brilliant researcher, twice Nobel Prize for Physics (1903, together with her husband Pierre Curie and Antoine Henry Becquerel) and chemistry (all alone in 1911), in an era in which women were excluded from positions still considered as exclusive domain of men.

Marie Curie is certainly one of the most important scientific figures in 1900, by virtue of her pioneering work on radioactivity. She left, in the collective imagination, a sign so strong as to be even mentioned in the suggestive song "Radioactivity" by... more »

When is a Hot Tub Cool? When It's Also a Cadillac Coupe DeVille!
On becoming the world's fastest hot tub

How many times have slightly inebriated engineering students asked, "Wouldn't it be cool if we could drive a hot tub?" Probably too many to count.

But how many times have those students gone on not only to build a fully functioning hot tub/car hybrid, but to have the opportunity to set the land speed record for world's fastest hot tub at the Bonneville Salt Flats during Speedweek 2014?

First 3D Model of a Synapse

I share an interesting news about neuroscience.

A glance into a new world for neuroscience: research team from Göttingen led by Prof. Dr. Silvio O. Rizzoli present the first scientifically accurate 3D model of a synapse. Published May 30th 2014 in SCIENCE. This effort has been made possible only by a collaboration of specialists in electron microscopy, super-resolution light microscopy (STED), mass spectrometry, and quantitative biochemistry from the UMG, the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, and the Leibniz-Institut für Molekulare Pharmakologie, Berlin.

Synapses are the contacts between nerve cells that allow the flow of information that makes our brains work. However, the molecular architecture of these highly complex structures has been unknown until now.

Writhing in the Snake Pit

Manitoba may not be the first place you'd think of when you think of snakes, but it is home to the Narcisse Snake Dens, which plays host to 75,000 writhing red-sided garter snakes during mating season.

Although the temperature in Manitoba can go down to -40 deg (F and C, since they are equal at that temperature ;)), the snakes winter over underground, below the frostline, wriggling through cracks in the limestone in what's effectively a massive snake housing complex.

If you don't suffer from ophidiophobia - fear of snakes, check out the video in +National Geographic's wonderful story, by +Christine Dell'Amore, on the snake dens, and the photographer who braved them to get some great views of the snakes during mating season (the gif here is a clip from that video).

Digital Ethereal
The art and science of illuminating the invisible

+Newcastle University PhD student, Luis Hernan has once again shown that art+science=awesome in his Digital Ethereal project, trying to shed light, and colour and shape, on the invisible wifi that surrounds us.

Hernan describes the approach as effectively measuring and mapping the signal strength in different locations, coding red as the strongest signals and blue as the weakest, and then combining the false colour coded signal strength across time and space using long-exposure photography.

The effect is hauntingly beautiful.

hitchBOT: The Robot Hitchhiking Across Canada
When this robot offers you its thumb, please give it a helping hand!

My parents always warned me about picking up hitchhikers, but if I see this little robot by the road, I'd be happy to give it a ride.

hitchBOT will be trying to make its way from Halifax, Nova Scotia, on the Eastern side of Canada (albeit not in the Easternmost Province, as noted by some disgruntled Newfoundlanders) to Victoria, British Columbia on the West Coast: about 6000 km/4000 miles going the most direct routes.

My good friend +Larry Morand, who works with John Corabi (of Mötley Crüe, The Scream, and Union fame) shared this photo that Cortney Bury shot of John over the weekend, and it is just too awesome not to share!

Just imagine what Cortney could do in +Chrysta Rae's Photography Scavenger Hunts... (Reveals are on now, so check out her page to see more creativity)

Circle area by rearrangement

A very intuitive visualisation!

A disk is divided into sixteen pie pieces and unrolled along the circumference. The resulting row of spikes is then split in two, one half is rotated and placed interlocking with the other half. Below, another disk is unrolled into a continuous gradient, simulating infinitesimal spikes. It is similarly split, rotated, and merged with the other half.

Football World Cup 2014 -the  role of physics in the game

The laws of physics, especially Newton's Laws of Motion,  play a very significant role in the game of football, even if the players are not aware of the impact they have on their famous strikes.

When a player kicks a ball, for instance, the force on the ball makes it accelerate - F = ma -  in the direction of the hit. 

At that moment, the same force acts on the footballer, as there is a reaction for every action, but in the opposite direction with equal magnitude - Newton's Third Law.

So, the game is not for the faint-hearted!

The impact on the ball is determined, not only by the force,  but also by the time of contact between the ball and the foot of the player.

When the ball is in the air, it is subjected to two opposing forces - weight that acts downwards and thedrag... more »

Pleine Lune
A great cheese to help you get over any humpday

After a particularly hard day/week, I was so happy to discover this cheese, which now sits in my top 10: Pleine Lune, an ash-cured triple cream for Québec.

Although I tend toward strong flavours in cheese, today, I just wanted something a bit easier, and this hits the spot with a super creamy texture, but enough flavour from the ash and otherwise to keep it from bland land.

Would love to hear other people's suggestions for favourite cheeses. But this one was perfect for today.

Best and Worst Ceremonial Pitches

One of my favourite infographics of the week: the +Washington Post did an (admittedly unscientific) analysis of ceremonial pitches at baseball games to see if 50 Cent's ceremonial pitch really was the worst of all time.

The answer? Pretty much yes.

But it should be noted that the Cookie Monster cheated, although we should cut him some slack considering that he is a fictional character....

Phenomenal Woman
RIP Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.

That's me.

This is the 3 Minute Thesis competition, where the best and brightest graduate students from around the world hone their communication skills to convey extraordinarily complex ideas in a simple and engaging way.  The 3MT was developed at the University of +Queensland, Australia , and now has spread around the world. 

This year, for the first time ever, Universities across Canada banded together for the inaugural Canadian 3MT Championship. Fivewi... more »

A new connectomic study explains a 30-year-old neuroscience paradox: Why don't people born with split brains exhibit classic split-brain symptoms, but people whose brains are split by surgery do? As it turns out, it's because people born with split brains form alternative connection pathways early in their lives. 

"For instance, when an unseen object is held in the right hand and thus recognized by the left hemisphere, both callosotomized and CD individuals can easily name that object verbally, because it is the left hemisphere that most often dominates verbal language. However, when an object is held in the left hand and thus recognized by the right hemisphere, callosotomized patients fail to verbally name the object because the missing corpus callosum prevents the right hemisphere from communicating with the left hemisphere. Conversely, CD patients have no difficulties in naming... more »

Argh!! Where is my post??

On Monday I posted a giveaway for one of +Michele Banks's original paintings and now the post seems to have disappeared!?!??? Can anyone else see it? (The original one, not one shared to the Psych community).

Not sure how a post just ceases to exist like that.... If I can't find it, I'll have to start over ;(. Sorry folks!!

Tank! Be Careful Who Tweets on Your Behalf...

Companies and organizations are increasingly hiring folks to tweet on their behalf, which makes sense when the folks who are hired can help get the message out better and faster. But if you're outsourcing your tweeting (or other social media), you need to be sure people are well versed in your business.

For example, if you are the Canadian Forces, be sure the people you hire know the difference between a Tank! and an LAV. Anyone in the Canadian Forces would know the difference, and certainly our veterans know. 

It's a learning lesson for everyone: hire people who really understand what you do.

by the way, yes, this is real - I grabbed the image off twitter myself so can vouch for it. If they don't delete it, here's the link:more »

Celebrating 400,000+ G+niuses!
An Art+Science=Awesome Giveaway Contest - Comment for a chance to win.

I was stunned when someone told me I'd passed 400,000 circlers, so I thought let's celebrate the occasion with a giveaway contest  that highlights why I think +Google+ is such an awesome place.

Way back when, I started using G+ for the science, and quickly discovered how much more it had to offer, including the art. And, imagine my elation when I found so many people interested in the intersection of two of my favourite things: Art+Science

So in thinking about what to giveaway, I thought, why not celebrate someone who really defines the equation: Art+Science=Awesome ??

The images below are by +Michele Banks aka @artologica on Twitter and Etsy. These are original watercolour paintings by Michele representing my favourite kindsof ... more »

The Science of Hot

We sampled a range of hot sauces this past week, including one aptly named Spontaneous Combustion . Even with a tiny taste, it was clear that the warning label on the jar was appropriate. But how can we quantify spiciness?

Today, we can use high-performance liquid chromotography (HPLC), which measures the chemical composition of substances, and can reveal the concentration of chemicals, like capsaicin (8-Methyl-N-vanillyl-trans-6-nonenamide, the main capsaicinoid in chili peppers, illustrated below), that produce the sensation of heat.

But way back in the early 1900s, before the days of HPLC, lab tests couldn't reliably detect low concentrations of capsaicin. So Wilbur Scoville devised a method that relied on a more sensitive scientific instrument: our tongues . Scoville's method ( The Scoville Organoleptic Test )... more »

Sorry Mom! But Thanks!!

+Rebecca Helm has a terrific article in +Slate in honour of #MothersDay. If you thought you appreciated everything your mom did for you before, after you read this, you'll appreciate her even more ;)

A sample from Rebecca's essay (aka letter of apology to her mom):

Dear Mom: I’d like to say I’m sorry. I’m sorry for manipulating you, stealing from you, taking control of your blood supply, and consuming part of your body. I, like everyone else alive today, did all this before I was even born, with an organ I no longer possess. Of course, I wasn’t consciously doing these things to you, in the same way I’m not consciously controlling my liver. It just sort of happened.

You can and should! read the whole thing here: http://goo.gl/xKLBdz

The Universe in a Glass of Wine

As you toast mom on this #MothersDay, remember that, as Richard Feynman said, in every glass of wine, you'll see the entire universe.

In this wonderful, short (2 minute) video, Feynman describes how a simple glass of wine can reveal the entire universe. From physics ("the twisty liquids, the reflections in the glass"), to geology ("glass is a distillation of the Earth's rocks), to the chemistry of the wine, coming from the very elements of the universe themselves, to the biological and psychological effects and impact of the wine on our bodies and our mind.

Although, as he notes, our brains compartmentalize these things into physics, biology, geology, astronomy, chemistry, psychology, "nature doesn't know it, so we should but it all back together" and just enjoy.

So as you... more »
