Daria Musk3,610,370Expand to read the story and learn how to join live!Three years ago to the day, I stood in front of my computer - a guitar in my hands, songs in my heart, fingers trembling - about to press a button that said, "Hangout". I was still waterlogged with rainy nights of lugging my amps into tiny clubs and tears from the not-knowing-what-would-happen to my dreams.That night, when I hit "Hangout" you saved my dreams, you saved me. Your faces popped in. We sang all night. Six hours later my heart was six million times bigger and I would never be the same. Every year I want to celebrate that day. I want to thank you face to face. I want to meet back at our special place and sing your praises. It's time for Hangoutiversary III. PLEASE, BE CELEBRATEDSo please, meet me on July 16th. Right here, inside the place where we had our virtual first date.

I'll sing new songs of adoration, to you and this crazy world that gives us a chance just when we think maybe it can't. Come with your hopes and your dreams to be amplified and your updates and your friends and families and fantasies. Let's sing 'til our throats go weak and dance in front of computer screens, like the silly beautiful people we know ourselves to be.  HOW TO HANGIn case you're new or rusty all you have to do to join this Hangout is: ✪ RSVP a big fat yes here.✪ On Wednesday, July 16th come back to this page when the Hangout starts (6PM Eastern US Time).✪ You can watch or click "join" to on my page +Daria Musk!✪ Don't for get to comment and let me know if you want to join and around what time.

Bearman Cartoons75,698Bearman Engagement Circle - October 2014Again thanks to +CircleCount  for giving me beta access to their future premium offerings, I was able to once again pull an engagment circle This allows me to see who has plussed, commented, or shared my last 100 posts.This circle represents the non duplicated list of the top 25 +1ers, top 25 commenters, and top 25 resharers of my last 100 posts.  But that doesn't give us the Bearman Engagement Score.That is determined by the following:1 point per Plus2 points per comment3 points per shareAdd all the points together and my top 15 in order for this month are:1. +Peter Marinacci 2. +Mark Norris 3. +LM Stewart 4. +李麟 5. +Steve Broome 6. +christina Fisher 7. +steph wanamaker 8. +Erik Swiger 9. +Justin Powell 10. +Dan Soto 11. +randy mccumber 12. +Jean Egan 13. +Lawrence Hults II 14. +Steven Pangkey 15. +Jim Huntsman Thanks to all that indulge me 2014-10-20 16:25:44584114
Tessa Schlesinger21,767This is my inner core circle  - the people from whom I share frequently. Sometimes, if someone hasn't been posting for a while, I will put them into another circle. I divide my circles into:1. Inner core ; people whose posts I share more often than others.2. Engagers: people with whom I engage and visa versa.3. My science circle. Geeky info that I like to read.4. My temporary circle; when I try out new people.2014-08-30 16:22:3688534
Laura B Williams864I just posted this circle to My Circles when I meant to post it publicly...ooops.This is a circle full of some of the most talented writers on Google+. I am sharing this with you because I like to share awesomeness. If you  are a writer and I do not have you in this circle please let me know in the comments and I will add you! 2014-07-12 13:09:58344302
Ole Olson46,666This is my original circle of progressives on G+. Add it for some hard hitting, unapologetic political information geared toward activating forward progress in America. 2014-06-28 03:56:553636518
Tessa Schlesinger20,569This is the circle of people I follow. I am not in it (so I'm not promoting myself). I follow them because they are interesting, sincere, have good stuff. Some of them have been here with me from day one.  They don't always interact every day, but I think it really depends on what you're looking for on G+. If you want people to interact with you, well, nobody can interact with everybody who adds them. There just isn't enough time to do that. On the other hand, if you'd like to read someone because they present informative, interesting, entertaining stuff, then this circle is interesting. I think it would appeal to atheists, agnostics, people who love beauty, travel, occasional humor, who are visual, intellectual, thinkers, humanist, and/or liberal. :)2014-05-08 15:31:52186503

Armando Lioss44,378“Active Engagers Shared Circle” 6.1Also known as the “Circle of Rivals” conformed by G+ users ready to stand for their points of view in an educated discussion and/or extending the discussion to their own streams... if you are looking into making your stream more dynamic, these are the guys you want to include... they are a diverse bunch of great plussers that includes liberals, progressives, conservatives, libertarians, religious, agnostics, atheists… from all around the world.In this shared circle you will find some interesting people to add to your circles, all of these G+ users currently actively engage my stream as well as other G+ users posts, so you can be sure they are getting involved in the Google Plus community.This “Active Engagers Shared Circle” version has been built with an improved algorithm that will filter occasional users and those that use hate speech or other nuisances to the common user.

Alister Macintyre42,106Do not confuse this circle with the one I have on Native American Indian interests.  My India Circle has people whose lives have either passed thru the great nation of India, are there now, or interested in India.  My interests range world wide, some nations more than others.  I recently started an Asia circle, and tried to pour into it my circles for Australia, China, Japan, India, some other countries, but bumped into another of G+ silly ceilings.  I have circles for several major regions of the world, including Middle East, Eu-W, and Eu-other.  I also have circles for specific nations like Germany and Haiti.2014-03-27 18:26:53148002

Tessa Schlesinger12,664These are the people I follow. If you would like to follow these people, feel free. There is no guarantee that they will add you if you do. You will be following them because you would like to hear what they have to say. There is no need to plus it, add a comment, and then share it in order for you to be added to some new circle which will be shared. This is the way we shared circles for the first two years. So feel free to add, or not. And I'm not in it so it isn't promoting myself. It's a gift to you, if you would like it. And, I suppose it's a gift to those who are in the circle that I freely give with no expectation of return.2013-11-03 12:52:17133335

Gary McLaren1,175New Engagers Circle on Google+Over the past few weeks as I have become more active here on G+ I have been extremely grateful for all the comments, +1s and shares from the people I've met here. After all, the "magic" of G+ is in the engagement - conversing and interacting with people on topics of mutual interest.Today I want to share with you a circle of wonderful people that have been engaging with me. Many of these people, like me, are writers and authors. They're a great bunch and I guess many of them are the type of people you might be looking to connect with too. So check them out. Go say "Hi". Add them to your circles if you like. Or share the circle with others. I'm not in this circle... this is all about them not me. So please consider sharing it with others to create even more connections. Hat tip to +martin shervington for the inspiration to do this. Cheers, Gary.  P.S. I'm sorry if I somehow missed you off this circle... if I did it was accidental! But if this idea goes over well, I'll be doing it again. 2013-02-19 23:38:59153666

What kind of parent wants to protect their kid from vaccine but not Disney

Sickos.

"No matter how many times you sing “Let It Go” alone in the car, it won’t change the fact that being anti-vaccine is sad and fundamentally violent. Yes, violent: it’s one group of people causing physical harm to others. If you’re that antisocial, that divorced from reality, and that incapable of understanding that there are other humans in the world, just stay home. The lines are shorter, and it’s a lot safer for the rest of us."

IOC refuses Saudi Arabia's bid to host 'men only' Olympics

Good job IOC. 

"The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has bluntly turned down Saudi Arabia's bid to jointly host the 2020 Olympic Games after it suggested that the competition would be for men only, with the women's competition being held in Bahrain."

Comcast apologizes for renaming customer 'A**hole Brown'

We can't wait for Google Fiber in our areas. 

"Comcast has apologized for changing a customer’s name to “Asshole Brown.”

The actual customer, Spokane, Wash., resident Lisa Brown, told consumer watchdog blogger Christopher Elliott that she had been trying, unsuccessfully, to get her real name placed on her account, providing screengrabs showing the less-flattering name a Comcast employee assigned to her instead."

Chinese couples urged to have more children

It's not going to end well.

"The Qianjiang Evening News quoted Fan as saying that 90% of the city’s women of child-bearing age were eligible for a second child under the change made in 2013, but that only 5% had applied. Shanghai officials urged more households to do so.

China’s birth rate is among the lowest of developing countries, nearly four decades after the country restricted most urban couples to having one child.

An ageing society threatens to slow down China’s booming economy and overload its pension system when too few workers will be supporting growing numbers of the elderly."

Sir David Attenborough about people's response to climate change

The nature of human beings is that they’d far rather face the disaster that is happening tonight than the one that is happening tomorrow...Climate change will affect the whole of humanity, while terrorist attacks will only affect a small section of humanity. Of course, you wouldn’t say that if you were related to someone who had been beheaded or blown up or murdered. But humanity is facing a very big, slow, long, drawn-out threat, and that is to do with the way the weather is changing and the size of the population.”

Portugal's star Luis Figo enters race for FIFA presidency

I hope he wins, Blatter has been the FIFA president for too long and way too corrupt.

"Figo said: "Football has given me so much during my life and I want to give something back to the game. I look at the reputation of FIFA right now and I don't like it. Football deserves better.

"In recent weeks, months, and even years, I have seen the image of FIFA deteriorate and as I speak to many people in football - to players, managers and Association Presidents - so many of those people have told me that something has to be done."

To the brain, reading aloud is the same as reading quietly to yourself

"What happens when we make the switch from reading aloud to internalizing our voices? Carl Engelking from Discover Magazine summarized a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that sought to answer just this question. The results of the group's research found that the brain lights up the same way when we read to ourselves as it would when we read aloud, showing what an important role sound plays to developing our internal monologue."

Death test could predict chance of dying within 30 days

"Health experts say the checklist will prevent futile and expensive medical treatments which merely prolong suffering.

The screening test looks at 29 indicators of health, including age, frailty, illness, mental impairment, previous emergency admissions and heart rate and produces a percentage chance of death within one month and 12 weeks.

Researchers say the aim of Critera for Screening and Triaging to Appropriate aLternative care, or CriSTAL for short, is to kick-start frank discussions about end of life care, and minimise the risk of invasive ineffective treatment."

We can't afford not to hold Saudi Arabia's royals to account

Well said.

"What do you call the unelected leader of a state that beheads people in public, permits only one faith and exports an extreme form of Islam to other countries? If he happens to be Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, self-appointed caliph of Islamic State (Isis), the answer is one of the world’s most wanted terrorists. If he is King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, the proper form of address is “Your Majesty”. Are we all clear about that? Me neither.

Yesterday, the Prince of Wales and the Prime Minister turned up in Riyadh to pay their respects to Salman’s half-brother, King Abdullah, whose death was announced on Friday. Abdullah’s demise, at the age of 90, unleashed a nauseating display of hypocrisy among world leaders."

Pres. Obama pays homage to Gandhi in visit to India

Martin Luther King Jr was inspired by Gandhi, who was inspired by Tolstoy's book (The Kingdom of God Within You). Tolstoy in turn was inspired by the early Quakers settlers in the US, who in turn was inspired by Jesus ('Resist no evil'). A full circle.

"He's somebody who I find a lot of inspiration in. He inspired Dr King (Martin Luther King Jr), so if it hadn't been for the non-violent movement in India, you might not have seen the same non-violent movement for civil rights here in the United States,"

Martin Luther King Jr was inspired by Gandhi, who was inspired by Tolstoy's book (The Kingdom of God Within You). Tolstoy in turn was inspired by the early Quakers settlers in the US, who in turn was inspired by Jesus ('Resist no evil'). A full circle.

"He's somebody who I find a lot of inspiration in. He inspired Dr King (Martin Luther King Jr), so if it hadn't been for the non-violent movement in India, you might not have seen the same non-violent movement for civil rights here in the United States,"

You could not kill them, if you met them: Bali Nine families' plea to Indonesia

They did the crime however they're doing terrific work in rehabilitating other prisoners. Indonesian government is insisting on shooting them to death. At least with the life sentences, Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan can keep continuing the prison education work. 

"After their initial defiance and lack of cooperation after their arrest in 2005 as the "ringleaders" of the Bali Nine syndicate that attempted to smuggle eight kilograms of heroin into Australia, both Chan and Sukumaran have transformed their lives.

Their impact on Kerobokan, one of Indonesia's most notorious prisons, has also been profound.

They have introduced arts, computer, English and graphic design courses. A T-shirt printing business and art sales raise money that is ploughed back into the prison.

A first aid course, cooking lessons, even philosophy and psychology classes - all have been arranged by the two.

And both regularly counsel prisoners and outsiders against the perils of drugs.

The impact has been so great that the prison's then governor Siswanto appeared as a witness for the two men in an earlier, unsuccessful appeal against the death penalty.

"I am confident that if [Mr Joko] knows what they have done and how much they have changed, I am sure he would not have the heart to order them to be executed," said Raji Sukumaran, Myuran's mother."

What kind of parent wants to protect their kid from vaccine but not Disney

Sickos.

"No matter how many times you sing “Let It Go” alone in the car, it won’t change the fact that being anti-vaccine is sad and fundamentally violent. Yes, violent: it’s one group of people causing physical harm to others. If you’re that antisocial, that divorced from reality, and that incapable of understanding that there are other humans in the world, just stay home. The lines are shorter, and it’s a lot safer for the rest of us."

When you decide that your goal in business is to serve the shareholder value interest as a top priority, you've made a decision to destroy your business. Your company likely won't close overnight; telling investors that you want to make money for them as your main business goal attracts the interest of investors, naturally. The capital investments they provide can fund a lot of activity... on paper. What you have done, however, in focusing on attracting and rewarding investors is to set a direction that ultimately means you will stop every business practice that actually creates value.

Customer service is typically considered a cost center. Sales brings in money, right? That's a profit center. "Servicing the customer, no, that's an expenditure. If we didn't have problems after we sold the service, we wouldn't have to spend that money!" The dream of every Sales engineer is a subscription commission service with nothing to detract from customer satisfaction. If only entropy and reality would stop getting in the way! Inevitably, the decision to chase a maximized profit margin (which of course justifies shareholder value) means that you'll start seeking any way you can to cut costs or raise prices. If your price is already as high as it can go, your decision that shareholder value is the most important goal basically means you've already made your decision: customer service isn't important. Cutting corners on that service is thus the "right" decision (ignoring that customers are the foundation of stable service and manufacturing industries, not investors). You're paying high wages to proven experts who know your service inside and out? Fire them, replace them with low-wage college hires who'll work for pennies on the dollar! Training is something that just happens, right? Experience is expensive to maintain but apparently free to gain, right? Better yet, send those jobs overseas where we can pay a fraction of a penny on the dollar. No one minds long wait times or difficult conversations with people they can't understand, right? Besides, who cares if there are no people left in our own country who can afford our services or products? They're not investors! They're just potential customers and only provide the tax base that keeps our national infrastructure solid!

In the meantime, let's make sure to gouge the education of our nation's kids to the bottom of the barrel. We want to make sure that our children aren't critical thinkers who'll see how we're essentially hollowing out their economic future. We want to prepare them to be happy with less, with menial labor jobs and to fill the manufacturing jobs that we're already sending overseas anyway. Why, in two generations, we could bring those jobs back to the new third-world economies our practices are fostering in the Midwestern and Southern red-voting stronghold states, where we will be able to pay the lowest wages possible on the broken American dollar! Better yet, returning those manufacturing jobs to the US means a future of reducing shipping costs, ensuring increasing profit margins!

Innovation? What's that? We don't need quality products, just shove anything out the door and market it right. Who cares if it doesn't work? Promise the customers that it WILL work... eventually. Show them little changes over time that make them feel like their decision to buy your service or product wasn't the result of lies and marketing illusions. Innovation costs money, and that's money that we could be paying out to investors in dividends or to executives as bonuses for improving the profit margin!

Seriously. If this makes you ill, ask yourself why we're letting it happen. Why do we let politicians and lobbyists in service to the upper 0.1% do this to our country? Why? #economicsuicide   #cultofshareholdervalue  ___Good Google+ post.

Fake bank swindles Chinese customers

Here US banks are not fake but still swindle customers :-)

"The fact the "bank" was able to operate for so long has left some Chinese social media users incredulous. "More than a year, it looks like the authorities have gone blind," says one user on the Weibo social network. "Fake banks, and a fake local government," comments another user. Police have arrested five people over the scam, including a woman who reportedly high-tailed it to Macau, China's famous gambling centre, with the customers' money."

Good question and answer.

Instead of waiting for God to solve, we can solve this problem ourselves. 

12-year-old Glyzelle Iris Palomar to Pope Francis:

"Many children are abandoned by their parents. Many of them became victims and bad things have happened to them, like drug addiction and prostitution. Why does God allow this to happen, even if the children are not at fault? Why is it that only a few people help us?"

Pope Francis:

 "She is the only one who has put forward a question for which there is no answer and she was not even able to express it in words but rather in tears."

"Why do children suffer?...I invite each one of you to ask yourselves, 'Have I learned how to weep, how to cry when I see a hungry child, a child on the street who uses drugs, a homeless child, an abandoned child, an abused child, a child that society uses as a slave'?"

Paris Mayor: We intend to sue Fox News

It's about time somebody teaches Fox News a lesson or two.

"Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo told CNN Tuesday she intends to sue Fox News in the wake of the channel's coverage of supposed "no-go zones" for non-Muslims.

Hidalgo said the channel had "insulted" her city.

"When we're insulted, and when we've had an image, then I think we'll have to sue, I think we'll have to go to court, in order to have these words removed," Hidalgo told CNN's Christiane Amanpour. "The image of Paris has been prejudiced, and the honor of Paris has been prejudiced."

CNN analyst urges Fox to settle Paris lawsuit

It was a surprise when Fox News aired their apology, now we know why. While in the US they can lie all they want in the name of free speech, it is defamatory in France and in other European countries. Maybe, this incident will teach them a lesson.

"Legal analyst Danny Cevallos advised Fox News to settle with Paris and put the lawsuit behind them as quickly as possible.

“If you want to defend a defamation lawsuit, it’s pricey, it’s costly, a lot of times you want those things to go away,” Cevallos said. “People may be surprised to learn that the French, in fact, do not take such a liberal view of the First Amendment as do we. Of course, they don’t have a First Amendment, but they have laws criminalizing defamation. Whereas here in the United States, defamation is merely a civil action.”

"Every year, A. Lange & Söhne presents one mega important watch and this year’s hero piece is arguably the Zeitwerk Minute Repeater. The original Zeitwerk watch was first released in 2009 and is today still the brand's most unique and distinctive piece. You see, most of A. Lange & Söhne watches, such as the Datograph, Saxonia, and Lange 1 are all arguably classically designed, and the A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk is unusual because it displays the time digitally..."

Dr. King ended the terror of living in the south

Without Martin Luther King, these things would've been still around in the South.

"I was kind of sarcastic and asked something like, so what did Martin Luther King accomplish other than giving his "I have a dream speech."

Before I tell you what my father told me, I want to digress. Because at this point in our amnesiac national existence, my question pretty much reflects the national civic religion view of what Dr. King accomplished. He gave this great speech. Or some people say, "he marched." I was so angry at Mrs. Clinton during the primaries when she said that Dr. King marched, but it was LBJ who delivered the Civil Rights Act.

The original plan was for Captain Picard to speak in a French accent

"Patrick Stewart played Captain Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation. He was an early pick for casting directors, but they took some time to develop the character. Although the character is a Frenchman, the English actor played the role with a more neutral accent.

While a guest on the CBS talk show The Talk, Stewart says that at the beginning of the show's development, the directors wanted him to speak with a French accent."
