Ole Olson39,934This is my newest political circle. If you know that there are solutions to the problems that we face, and understand that standing united to move forward is the answer, this circle is for you. These folks are intelligent commenters, good engagers, activists at heart, and have a progressive stream of posts that are fun to read.2014-02-10 02:52:51181227

Alex Grossman56,667G+ Engagers CircleIt's been a while since I shared a circle, so here's a small circle of people I recommend following. They are great to engage with, full of energy and opinions and fun, with very little anger, disrespect, or poor manners. Hope you enjoy all of them as much as I do. They certainly make my time in G+ lots of fun. :)2013-08-22 03:31:187510711

Dede King0Star Stuff Circle"We are all connected: To each other, biologically; To the earth, chemically; To the rest of the Universe, atomically."  - Neil Degrasse Tyson...And through G+, algorithmically. Thanks for the relevance. If you're new to G+, this is a pretty good circle if you want to liven up your stream or you're in the mood to pop a blood vessel or two. IJS.

Dede King0The Fundie CircleIt's round. I've hand picked the ones I interact with not because they're relevant to me or because of what they post, but because I could pick them out of a line-up, state their name and at least one fact about them and they're generally wonderful people to know. The top 10 I'd probably bail out of jail and take a bullet for, but that's neither here nor there. One thing none of them can be accused of, is being soporific. As a disclaimer: Circle with caution or stalk quietly as the circle is filled with every type of G+ user that might not appeal to all tastes including:1. Photo fundies2. Meme fundies3. Gif fundies4. News link reshare fundies5. Art fundies6. Science fundies7. Music fundies8. Narcissistic fundies9. Selfie shot fundies10. Food fundies11. Passive-aggressive one liner vague posting fundies12. Contrarian fundies (not trolls, just opinionated)13. Long form post fundies14. Leg humper fundies15. Lastly, the G+ fundies (they know everything about G+ and will tell you how to Internet)16. High Voltage Noms (+A.V. Flox)17. Low Voltage Noms (+Jake Kern)18. Cat fundies (+Bobbi Jo Woods)19. Sine Wave Noms (+fan tai)It's not really a circle meant to be shared, just my way of saying hey to all of you that make this place worth while <3 No hard feelings if I forgot anyone, it happens. Have a wonderful day.2013-04-17 15:28:3834742831130

Dave Tozier0+Danial Hallock originally shared this post:The Three HundredRevised CopyIt's been about a month since my last share of #thethreehundred  so I wanted to share the revised copy of the circle; and true to my word, there have been a lot of revisions in the last month.For example, I've gone through each and every one of the 200 some odd recommendations and circle shares that came about from the last circle share.  As a result, of the original 297 that were shared a little under a month ago (http://goo.gl/xqGb4), I removed approximately 137 300ers and added 129 new members.  You can expect this circle to continue to change, but I think the triple digit adjustments are mostly done.  For those of you just joining us, this is a continuation of a project where I've been changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).As always, If you're notified you're in it. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream?  Remember: #sharingiscaring  (Link to this post: http://goo.gl/cHwht)2012-11-20 17:22:28295000

Danial Hallock4,130The Three HundredRough DraftA few weeks ago I posted a rather lengthy post about how I was changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).  This is the first rough draft of that circle, minus a few ninjas that prefer not to be shared out.  As such, the landscape of this circle will change drastically over the next few months; but I wanted to give the people who are following this circle a glimpse of what to expect.  As always, If you're notified you're in it. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream? :D #thethreehundred   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring  2012-10-22 15:52:142971191078
Alex Grossman27,422Last time I shared a relevancy circle was back in July. From then until now (October 19), it's only changed by 7 people, and most but not all of that was near the end of the list. So, it's remarkably consistent.These 99 users are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself, so a total of 100). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is definitely more accurate now than last time. Does the algorithm get better over time due to more data? I still suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd still be curious and interested to learn more about it.Anyway, these people are relevant to me and truly help me enjoy my time sharing, talking, discussing, and hanging out on G+. So, thank you to all of you :)TGIF and have a great start to the weekend!P.S. - Typical inconsistent G+ - I could share the Movie Lovers Circle earlier today with about 130 people being notified. However, by mid-morning I couldn't notify the 99 people in this Circle. Now, I can again. But it appears that instead of setting a limit on the number of people in a circle, maybe they've set a limit on the number of people you could notify in a set period of time? Very strange. If anybody has any clue as to why this is, please let me know.2012-10-20 03:24:2710023124
Alex Grossman27,364It's TGIF so hope you have a great day. Here's a Circle I thought I'd share today for Follow Friday - Movie Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about movies, all kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, engaging with others, sharing and exchanging comments, please let me know and I can try and add you to this Circle (notification limits permitting). If you're a member of this circle, you agree to participate in a respectful manner. Due to the changing and, at times uncertain, notification restrictions Google has in terms of number of people you can notify with a post I've split this up into two Circle. The overflow from this Circle can be found at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/Ad9LJFo9PLrFYI - you can find today's movie thread at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/RDDzuGdsvLX #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #movies   #film  2012-10-19 14:01:4110111219

Andrew Eva2,872Thought for #followfriday   I'd share my "Makes me Think" circle.These folks all post things, or engage in my posts, with comments and thoughts that make me think. If I find myself at home, hours later, still thinking about a comment, or post, or idea that was being discussed, one of these individuals was most likely part of that discussion or triggered the thought.I hope they all challenge you to think as well.2012-09-28 17:25:226233626
Alex Grossman26,573For another Follow Friday Circle for today, here is my Music Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about and listen to music. All kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. Unlike other circles, not all shares will be public since some people don't want to see playlists or song shares in their stream. So, articles and discussions of artists, software, the industry, etc will be public and playlists from Spotify or songs may (but not always) be shared to Circles only. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, exchanging comments back and forth, sharing music, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. You only need to agree that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful manner.For a playlist I shared today, go to:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/7vrRYxfXr4c #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #playlist   #music  2012-09-28 14:23:558512112

Alex Grossman24,371My Top 99 circle - is Relevancy Accurate?These are the 99 users who are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is surprisingly accurate until the last bit of it when some names appeared and others were left off. I suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd be curious to continue the discussions I've seen on other similar threads this week.Want to create your own? (instructions borrowed/stolen from +Max Huijgen )► Click circles on the tab on the right► Make sure relevance is selected (default)► Select the top 99 users. (Drag a box around them)► Drag the whole group to "drop here to create new circle"► The new circle will open up.

Alex Grossman24,072For another Follow Friday Circle for today, here is my Music Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about and listen to music. All kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. Unlike other circles, not all shares will be public since some people don't want to see playlists or song shares in their stream. So, articles and discussions of artists, software, the industry, etc will be public and playlists from Spotify or songs may (but not always) be shared to Circles only. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, exchanging comments back and forth, sharing music, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. You only need to agree that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful manner.For a playlist I shared today, go to:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/2XVUsmDQ86M #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #music   #playlist  2012-07-20 15:25:0683722
Alex Grossman24,072For my second Circle today for Follow Friday, here is my Respectful Politics Circle. This Circle is by request only and not for the faint of heart. It's filled with people who are passionate about politics and issues that impact society and come from across the political spectrum - the point is to have fun, learn and share. If you're interested in joining the discussions, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. No commitment to share your own posts, but it is preferred that you at least comment semi-regularly so as to encourage discussion. Just keep in mind that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful and civil manner. Let your passion fill you, but always temper it with manners, respect and politeness. Bullies will not be tolerated. The point is not to "win" but to learn. #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #politics  2012-07-20 15:10:0498901

Ron Paul's a bit like a stopped clock. This time his doctor's experience + libertarian principles nail travel bans.

We'd probably save more lives banning travelers with runny noses than people from countries with Ebola.

Proposed AZ law would allow employers to request proof pill subscription isn't for sex.

❝ Yesterday, a Senate Judiciary Committee endorsed Republican Debbie Lesko's HB2625 by a vote of 6-2, which would allow an employer to request proof that a woman using insurance to buy birth control was being prescribed the birth control for reasons other than not wanting to get pregnant. It's all about freedom, she said, echoing everyone who thinks there's nothing ironic about claiming that a country that's "free" allows people's bosses to dictate what medical care is available to them through insurance.

I don't think this is the whole picture, but it certainly provides some interesting numbers and context to how the initiatory got so skewed early on.

Stop the Ebola Witch-Hunt!

http://lauren.vortex.com/archive/001080.html

There's a wonderful old 1963 episode of the classic original "The Outer Limits" series called "The Sixth Finger."

It stars David McCallum as a man who is artificially and rapidly evolved into the human of the far future, both in terms of physical appearance and vastly enhanced intellect.

At one critical juncture, as he surveys the pitiful confusion of the ordinary humans who want to destroy him for being different, he proclaims, "Your ignorance makes me ill and angry."

But you don't have to be a super-intellect to feel both ill and angry at the spectacle of the current Ebola witch-hunt, being largely orchestrated by so-called radio and television "journalists" and lowlife politicians, with masses of ordinary folks being whipped... more »

Stop the Ebola Witch-Hunt!

There's a wonderful old 1963 episode of the classic original "The Outer Limits" series called "The Sixth Finger."

It stars David McCallum as a man who is artificially and rapidly evolved into the human of the far future, both in terms of physical appearance and vastly enhanced intellect.

At one critical juncture, as he surveys the pitiful confusion of the ordinary humans who want to destroy him for being different, he proclaims, "Your ignorance makes me ill and angry."

But you don't have to be a super-intellect to feel both ill and angry at the spectacle of the current Ebola witch-hunt, being largely orchestrated by so-called radio and television "journalists" and lowlife politicians, with masses of ordinary folks being whipped into a frenzy of hate and prejudice as a predictable (and we may reasonably assume, intentional) result.

The worst offenders are the usual sycophant suspects. Moronic right-wing talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh, the FOX News clowns, and the rest of the theocratic, anti-science, anti-health care, racist boosters of the rich and haters of the poor. You can tune them in anytime, ranting that Ebola is all a plot by Obama, that we should ban anyone who has been in Africa, and that we're about to be destroyed by an Ebola mutated into an airborne horror.

Sad to say, CNN -- once a great news organization -- now spinning out of control into the pit of mediocrity under the reigns of Jeff Zucker, has been a particular offender, going wall to wall for ratings with breathless, panicked Ebola stories, only sidetracking into other items if they're bloody enough or feature globe-trotting chefs or the new retread of "Dirty Jobs." In fact, one of the few sane recent commentaries I've seen on cable news lately about Ebola actually was on FOX News -- proving once again the old adage about a stopped clock not being incorrect quite all of the time.

And the Internet is now playing a major role as well. Blogs and other social media are being used to spread completely false rumors about Ebola outbreaks and deaths in the U.S., or attempting to capitalize on fake Ebola cures. Facebook and Twitter are being used today to vilify a doctor back from treating Ebola patients who has now tested positive for the disease.

Naturally, these purposeful attempts at panicking the populace are having nightmarish, sickly effects. One of those effects is to terrify health care workers, who know all too well what the sorts of demands now coming from talk show hosts, politicians, and panicked citizens would mean in terms of making a horrible situation in Africa even worse.

Attempts to ban persons who have traveled or transited from Africa would decimate relief efforts, as would country-specific travel bans in general. Demanding that every symptom-free health care worker who has been trying to help Ebola patients be quarantined upon return is not only unnecessary but would vastly undermine the willingness of health care workers to volunteer for such efforts in the first place. Meanwhile, where Ebola really is endemic -- in Africa -- it would continue to spread in the horrendous living conditions and primitive health care environment there -- putting ever more people in Africa at genuine risk.

Now, get this through your thick skulls, you idiot Ebola panickers and profiteers ...

The only people who get Ebola are ones who are in direct, close contact with persons in the throws of major Ebola symptoms -- like vomiting, horrible coughing, and other symptoms you wouldn't want to be anywhere near even if all they represented was a case of the flu. 

It is not an epidemic here. It is not going to be an epidemic here. 

And speaking of the flu -- now that's something you should be worried about! Thousands die every year from the flu here in the U.S., many for lack of simple vaccinations (thank the anti-vaccine nutcases for contributing to that). Unlike Ebola, the flu is airborne and easily spread.

Oh yes -- and ironically, the same GOP fanatics so desperate to repeal the Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare") that has provided millions with insurance and preventative care against diseases such as the flu, are the same hateful creatures who are out there now seemingly demanding draconian restrictions against anyone who even utters the word "Ebola" in public.

And just to be clear, this isn't just a GOP-orchestrated witch-hunt -- though they're the masters of the method. There are also Democratic politicians who are playing the Ebola scare card for all it's worth.

Given the toxic political landscape, it's six of one and half a dozen of another (and I don't mean "Outer Limits" fingers in this case) when it comes to reigning in our politicians on this. Ebola is their natural element for exploitation. You might as well try keep a bear away from a beehive dripping with honey.

But there is one thing I believe we can do. As I noted earlier, social media is being widely abused to spread Ebola panic and prejudice. When you see this occur, I urge you to call out the perpetrators publicly for what they are. Don't sit silently and let them get away with their hateful garbage. 

Yes, this means having a thick enough skin to deal with the inevitable trolls, but this is a situation where we're talking about real lives being ruined not only by Ebola itself, but by purposefully orchestrated false stories and resulting panic, often using the Web as its carrier.

Thankfully, the Internet is still one place where we individually and collectively still have some real control.

Take care.

Insofar as I'm concerned about US spying on Germany, it's for this reason: "[T]he conflict with Germany also has underscored concern that intelligence agencies lack any good risk-assessment model to judge the benefits of operations against friendly powers against the potential risks."

But I think people are a little naive about our spying on friendly nations: this was a huge violation of trust, but we still ought to be spying on each other.

Technically, most espionage is illegal under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. However, the Vienna Convention's restrictions on espionage are not followed by anyone, have never been followed by anyone, and were signed with the expectation and tacit understanding that it was unenforceable garbage law. As you can tell by the fact that it was signed in 1961, which was not in any meaningful sense a downward inflection... more »

As you can tell by the fact that it was signed in 1961, which was not in any meaningful sense a downward inflection point in the use of prohibited espionage.

With that in mind, international "restrictions" on spying are best understood as a set of shared, tacit understandings about which espionage can and cannot be rightfully demagogued during UN sessions and parliamentary elections. Normal, workaday espionage -- the sort designed to reassure politicians that they're not being screwed in treaty negotiations -- is probably, on balance, a good thing. But there is a line. And we have crossed it.

Chatting up undersecretaries at formal events and leaving recording devices in conference rooms at trade meetings? Great, fine; everyone does it, and everyone should. Tapping a friendly Prime Minister's phone, though? Are you crazy?

Apart from the damage done to a foreign democracy -- which is not inconsiderable -- there's also the fact that this was always a risk. None of our interactions with Germany are high-stakes and negative enough to warrant this sort of intrusion.___

5 Ways Society Is Sexist Against Men (and How We Can Fix It) — Cracked

Oddly enough, the answer seems to be feminism. :)

Hint: The answer is #feminism .

"On the less depressing side, there's this woman who ran across America to benefit wounded veterans, or this woman who has spent the last eight years visiting veterans in hospital and raising truckloads of money for them. We looked around to see if any of the men's rights activists complaining online about feminism had done anything to help soldiers or victims of workplace injury, and we couldn't find much, but we're sure they'll get to it after reading this."

My fellow Americans: There’s an election in two weeks, and the Republicans are favored to take control of the Senate.

There is only one issue at stake in determining control of the Senate: turnout. That’s it. Democrats are on track to lose the Senate because they aren’t going to bother to show up.

Candidates can make their speeches, and throw their tantrums at debates, but there aren’t really any swing voters anyway. All they’re doing is feeding their supporters’ social media posts.

Republicans have this figured out. They show up on Election Day. They work to pass laws to make it harder for likely Democratic voters to vote.

Democrats, not so much. They don’t bother to show up. If Democrats showed up and voted, Republicans would never control any branch of government again. No, gerrymandering wouldn’t make a difference: gerrymandering gives the Republicans only a small handful of House seats, and doesn’t affect Senate races at all. The only thing that matters is whether or not you vote.

Your vote is so important that the Republicans want to stop you from using it. Good Americans died for it. People around the world wish for it. How can you possibly take it for granted? How can you just decide it’s not worth your trouble? Are you frustrated by a lack of meaningful choices? Are you angry over the role of money in politics? Well, none of that will matter if you just get off your lazy ass and vote.

Are you upset that the politicians never take your views, your needs, your feelings into account? Well, if you don’t vote, your views, needs, and feelings don’t matter at all. They’re supposed to ignore you. It’s rational for them to ignore you. They’ll ignore you, and pay attention to the wacko teabaggers with the misspelled signs and nary a clue among them. Those people will be making your decisions for you.

Yesterday, Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey said that it’s important for Republicans to win state elections this year, so they will be the ones “overseeing the voting mechanism” in the 2016 presidential election. That’s how they plan to win elections: by controlling them. They’re doing everything they can to keep you from voting, and their most potent weapon is making you not want to bother. You may not think a midterm election is important, but they know it is.

“Not voting” isn’t a protest, and it’s not a statement. It’s an abdication.

Study shows real Sex Ed classes reduce the number of kids having sex.

This _should_ be a point around which conservatives and liberals could rally. The conservative argument is that Sex Ed encourages kids to behave immorally, and that's just not the case.

This was, btw, a course created by Planned Parenthood. So I doubt we'll see any deals with the devil anytime soon. :/

Ron Paul's a bit like a stopped clock. This time his doctor's experience + libertarian principles nail travel bans.

We'd probably save more lives banning travelers with runny noses than people from countries with Ebola.

Could someone defrock pseudo-psychologist Charles Krauthammer on Fox?

He claims Obama's heavy use of "me" and "I" is indicative of arrogance. I assume if he liked the candidate he'd be saying it was indicative of positive self-confidence. But he doesn't bother to actually count the usage. Which turns out to be lower than anyone since Franklin Roosevelt and Herbert Hoover.

Tomorrow's headline: "Obama's heavy use of 'we' indicative of socialist beliefs."

Jerrie Cobb, who deserved to be the first female astronaut, yet never made it to space at all.

“I would give my life to fly in space. It’s hard for me to talk about it but I would. I would then, and I will now.” -Jerrie Cobb, at age 67 in 1999

Interesting new study confirms what many of us have long felt.

"Die-hard liberals and down-the-line conservatives have segregated themselves into strikingly different news universes, relying on sources of information that often reinforce their views and discussing politics mostly with others of like minds, according to an in-depth new study."

Lost Comet

This week comet Siding Spring (also known as C/2013 A1) made a close approach to Mars. It’s not a particularly bright comet, but it was close enough for the Opportunity rover to take an image of it from the martian surface. Think on that one just a bit. We have robots on Mars doing comet photography now. At closest approach, Siding Spring was about 140,000 km from the center of Mars. If it had made a similar pass by Earth it would have been about half the distance to the Moon.

In recorded history, we’ve never had a comet pass so close to Earth. We’ve had bright comets, and Earth even passed through the tail of Halley’s comet in 1910, but never a really close approach. The closest recorded comet flyby occurred in 1770 by Comet Lexell. It was discovered by Charles Messier just a month before close approach, and came within 2.2 million kilometers of our planet.At it’s... more »

In recorded history, we’ve never had a comet pass so close to Earth. We’ve had bright comets, and Earth even passed through the tail of Halley’s comet in 1910, but never a really close approach. The closest recorded comet flyby occurred in 1770 by Comet Lexell. It was discovered by Charles Messier just a month before close approach, and came within 2.2 million kilometers of our planet. At it’s closest, it was noted that the nucleus had an apparent size equal to Jupiter, and its coma was larger than the Moon.

The comet was named after Anders Johan Lexell, who determined its orbit and demonstrated that it was a periodic comet with a period of about 5.5 years.  This meant its aphelion (greatest distance from the Sun) was in the region of Jupiter’s orbit. Although it was expected to return in 1776, it was never seen again. In the 1840s Urbain Le Verrier (famous for predicting the existence of Neptune) calculated that the comet made a couple close approaches to Jupiter that radically changed its orbit, possibly even throwing it out of the solar system.

Comet Lexell is now designated a lost comet. Siding Spring will soon head to the outer edge of the solar system, not to return to the inner solar system for a million years.

Analysis of skeletal diseases such as arthritis can point to potentially unsuspected infectious causes.

Ancient misdiagnosis: Pharaohs didn't have ankylosing spondylitis 
The antiquity of diseases is relevant to understanding their etiologies and the case of the Pharaohs (Amenhotep III in picture)  with ankylosing spondylitis is a famous one buttressing its priority. But as it turns, that wasn't true. Research conducted CT scan on 13 Egyptian mummies including that of Amenhotep III and have now found that they had suffered from the more innocuous DISH aka Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis and not Ankylosing Spodylitis.
Why are scientists so interested in digging graves and proving the antiquity of various arthritis illnesses?
Despite this, the antiquity of Ankylosing Spondylitis is not in doubt as it has been demonstrated in other ancient graves but in striking contrast, the more debilitating Rheumatoid arthritis is a new disease that first appeared in the old world in 16th/17th centuries after the discovery of the Americas. While there is no evidence of any skeletal remains with rheumatoid arthritis in the old world predating 16th century, there is evidence ancient remains with rheumatoid arthritis as far back as 1000BC from Kentucky. This suggests the potential role of an infectious agent that originated in the Americas and spread to the rest of the world and has since become ubiquitous. One potential candidate is the Epstein Barr virus
