Trever McGhee18,273+Take2seconds to click the add button on this circle!Last week +Kurt Smith asked people to name 5 people they thought should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'.  He received 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.We were honored to be among them, so we've created two circles to honor those chosen.This is the second of 2 circles from that list.Their all worthy of a follow .. a circle  to see what they bring to your stream.Check them out for a week...keep the ones that you like at the end of the week and then put the rest aside for another time :-))))People always ask me to add them or another person to the next circle when I share circles from other people to help them connect with others...Well I can't add you to their circle but what I can do is create another circle for you.So if you would like to be in the next one or would like to recommend someone,1st. please leave a comment of why you or they should be in the next circle, why people should circle you back.2nd. please share this circle to the public stream to help these people connect with others.I'll create a circle once a week with your suggestion.P.S. if your in the above circle and would like to be in the next one, just let me know. #bestofgoogleplus   #bestofgoogleplus2012   #circle   #circles   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircles   #sharedmycircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #publicshare   #publiccircles   #publicsharedcircles   #publiccirclesproject   #addmetoyourcircles   #awesomecircle   #awesomeness   #awesomepeople   #awesomecircle  +Circles 2013-01-02 20:58:1649052430
Kurt Smith21,124Here's The 'Best of Google Plus 2012' Circle Share (Circle 3 of 3)Last week I asked other plussers to name 5 Plussers they think should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'. They nominated others based on what they think makes a really good Google Plusser - original & quality content; makes you think, laugh, & enjoy Google Plus more; engages with others; shares and helps others; etc. We got 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.This is the third of 3 Circle Shares of those named the 'Best of Google Plus' - this circle contains those who got 2-3 votes. These are plussers other plussers think are among the Best on Google Plus and I believe we should all circle and consider following them because other quality plussers we can trust recommend following them.Like the other circles I've curated ('Thought Provokers' & 'Plussers Who Give A Boost') you can only get in these circles on the recommendation of another plusser (no "add me" going on here). So this is a quality group that should be recognized for making Google Plus better for all of us.Let's encourage quality on G+ and the best way we can do that is to Add & Share these circles. It took some work to put this together, so the best 'thank you' you can give me (and the nominees) is to add, share and encourage your followers to do the same.Circle 1 (those who got 4+ nominations): http://goo.gl/tAePDCircle 2 (those who 2-3 nominations): http://goo.gl/7IBkVWondering who nominated you?

Neeta Tolani24,063Indians Active on G+Earlier this week, I made a post about trying to make my own "Indians Active on G+" circle. Thank you to everyone that contributed, re-shared, tagged and discussed this initiative. I've looked through every profile that was tagged and had the pleasure of discovering some very interesting people. Here is the circle I created. People in this circle come from all walks of life, live in all parts of the world and have diverse interests (sounds just like India :) .... and have a common thread binding them.. India. I've humbly included myself in it, but please feel free to remove me or anyone else if you'd like to re-share it. I've not added some folks with very large following that were tagged in the initial post. Will build this circle out a little more as I discover more people.

Jens „Google Plus Yoda“ Graikowski10,635Last share of the F1 circle (Part one) ...As I have completely changed my circle system and am working exclusively with my "Interaction Ladder" (http://bit.ly/VfSrjs) for incoming and my "Targeted Circles" (http://bit.ly/XSXBoR) for outgoing traffic I have decided to delete even my last themed circle, the #FormulaOne  circle.I believe that creating a #Formula1  community via a circle is impractical and cumbersome. A #GooglePlusPage  is better suited for this endeavour, so if you want to be part of a large #F1 community I recommend you try some of the pages around, like +F1 Circle (the page that belongs to this circle) or +Formula 1 Fans. I will share this circle in two parts (One of the reason that it is cumbersome. You can't share circles larger than 500) so it doesn't get lost for those who are still interested in it. I will delete it from my circles afterwards.This is part one with F1 aficionados from A to L. The M to Z part will follow in a second.Don't get me wrong! I'll keep on posting about the F1 and I'll do so publicly. You can still all read my Formula 1 posts. If you'd like to be notified of them I'll gladly add you to my Formula 1 targeted circle. Just +1 the first comment underneath this post!I hope we'll all enjoy the last race of the season 2012 and am looking forward to see you all again in 2013.And now go and share this circle all over the place, will ya!Greez,+Jens Graikowski ***************************************************************** #jgformula12012-11-22 23:02:21367418

Max Huijgen27,573Will Red Bull be allowed to race this afternoon? FIA finds fault with their engine mapping suggesting that Red Bull uses illegal torque maps. Technical delegate Jo Bauer put forward his findings after Saturday's qualifying session, claiming that both cars are in breach of the regulations.The effect of the strange looking torque maps is that maximum power is not delivered in the mid RPM ranges suggesting that the exhaust flow is used to influence the aerodynamics. Strictly forbidden after last years 'exhaust-blown diffuser' exploit of the rules. Sanctions could range from grid penalties to exclusion of this race!find below the first F1 circle; I will share the second one in a minute2012-07-22 10:39:5350021216

Jens „Google Plus Yoda“ Graikowski4,830the SUPER F1 CIRCLE (first installment) ...here it finally is! ... the collective effort of hundreds of F1 buffs all over the world ... the SUPER F1 CIRCLE! ...this circle started some time ago with three guys roaming G+ on the search for #formula1 fans ... +Brian Titus +Max Huijgen and my humble self put everybody who posted #F1 posts or commented on them in a circle and this circle has been circulating (you see what i did there, don't you? ... circle? ... circulating? ... no? ... well, never mind!) G+ for weeks and months now ... now we went one step further ... in one of my last posts i asked all members of the circle to send me their's, since it was probable that they had some #foreveralone aficionados in their private F1 circle that weren't yet in ours ... and there were! ... our SUPER F1 CIRCLE has grown to impressive 593 members! ... since i can only share 500 in a circle, this is the first installment ...the next installment will follow in a second, but there might be a problem ... since google in its infinite wisdom decided to make every movement in your circles a circle addition i can't split the circle properly ... i tried to and because i had moved some of the F1 buffs around already, my circle page told me that i had exceeded my limit to add people to my circles ... i had only added about 20 but since i moved hundreds from one circle to another i was told off ... well, that is the subject for another post ...anyway, i'll share the second installment in a sec, but there might be some doubles ... that doesn't matter though if you just add the second circle to the first ... doubles will automatically ignored then ...if you still have your ow F1 circle, send it to me (share it with just me) ... i will add to the next update then ... like this we should be able to collect the majority of the F1 buffs in one all encompassing circle ... thx for your collaboration! ...please don't forget to share this post publicly! ... we want to reach every F1 fan out there and we can only do that with your help! ... and don't forget, we are going to start our formula 1 race hangout at around 6pm GMT! ... you better reserve yourself a spot ... read more here http://bit.ly/Lg58Xj ! ...greez,+Jens Graikowski ...************************************************************************permalink to this post: http://bit.ly/KJbun4 ... #jgformula1  if you'd like to be notified about these kinds of posts, please read http://bit.ly/JPJxor ... if, on the other hand you are already receiving these notifications and would rather not anymore, please let me know in a PM (no questions asked) ...2012-06-10 15:52:2850116412

Jens „Google Plus Yoda“ Graikowski3,652newest version of our #F1 circle ...updated on the saturday, the 14th of april 2012» honey, they're here!+Max Huijgen has finally shared his eagerly anticipated #formulaone circle ... just in time for the race weekend in china ... i added it to our already existing circle and we gained a whopping 96 new members! ... thx to his excellent work our circle is now 344 #formula1 buffs strong! ... that's impressive, though there must be more out there ... please share this circle publicly, so we can find them all! ... if you are reading this and are not yet included in the circle, but would like to be, give me a shout in the comments! ...» who are we?originally this circle was curated by +Brian Titus (with a bit of a helping hand by myself) to bring all the F1 fans at #googleplus together and discuss our favorite subject ... we have our own +page too, called +F1 Circle ... don't forget to add it! ... apart from discussing the news around the formula 1 circus we'd like to do more though ... i for example will invite the whole circle to a hangout at every #race (if i can't or won't watch a race, like bahrain, we'll find somebody else who starts the hangout) ... like this, we can watch the #grandprix together (it's always nicer in good company) ... if you have some other great ideas about activities, that could make our little circle more interesting, let me or +Brian Titus or +Max Huijgen know! ...and now, let's all have a great time together! ...greez,+Jens Graikowski ...****************************************************************************** #jgformula12012-04-14 18:59:363441007
Max Huijgen20,565Will Rob Smedley start driving the Ferrari himself? An F1 circle of fans!A few weeks ago I started collecting people who are real fans of F1. Now crowd sourcing has the disadvantage that there are always people who want to be in a circle no matter the subject. I have taken my time to go through comments and posts all over G+ and came up with the following hard core fans. Now I´m pretty sure there must be much more and I will gladly add you if you have a clue about the post titlle :)Now, there is already a +F1 Circle and +Jens Graikowski and +Brian Titus have been curating this. Last year +Kol Tregaskes and I made the same effort. The goal is of course to get to one circle to rule them all ;)It makes no sense at all to have fragmented circles so I checked mine against the existing ones and found 98 new names compared to the latest shard one, so that´s good news.Before I merge I want to be sure we have as many people who really love #F1 as possible and avoid taking on board too many people who just want to be in. If you already have the latest circle you can just add this one to it to win the 98 new ones. What I hope for however is that we will find even more F1 fans thanks to this post and that I can share an even larger one next time. So if you´re in it and feel others are forgotten please mention them. Oh, and if you don´t want to be notified just say so, and I make sure someone else can be on the selected list for notifications.2012-04-14 14:56:1417056622

Virtual Brain Trust Cooperative440Virtual Brain Trust Cooperative Circle. This is being posted mostly as a thank you to the people who have followed our new Google+ page. In the brief time since we set this up, more than 400 people have added it to their circles and are following our posts. Clearly something we are doing has inspired, or at least intrigued, a good number of people here. We really appreciate this vote of confidence and will continue to explore ways we can use a bit of the extra brain power we all have to help each other. These projects will be announced on the VBT Google+ page, so be sure to add that to your circles if you have not yet done so, and also on the network we are building at http://VirtualBrainTrust.org. Some of our more advanced projects will be lauhched on that site, so please consider adding a profile there if your interest is more than casual. It is possible this may be one of the last times we are able to share this circle - we are getting close to Google's 500 member limit and shared circles have limited utility for what we are doing anyway. Still, there are some great people to follow here, They all believe in the spirit of cooperation and have offered to at least consider using a bit of their extra brainpower - their skills, intelligence and creativity to help other people. If you are looking for people who are both smart and considerate, this is a great place to start.2011-12-09 16:58:254291798

Comrade Kim Goes Flying

As 'Interview' is shelved, a peek at what North Korean cinema really looks like

'Comrade Kim Goes Flying' is a glossy and rare instance of the country's cinema.

From the trailer, it seems pretty much like any formulaic inspirational sports movie with some romance mixed in.

India and Bangladesh Near Resolution on Border Dispute

The Indo-Bangladesh border is also home to the world’s only third order enclave, the Indian Dahala Khagrabari.

To see just how crazy this is, understand that this means that it is a piece of India within Bangladesh, within India, within Bangladesh.

Interesting theory - Rise in Urbanization leads to Rise in Nationalism

From the Article:

In China, as in 19th century Europe, rapid industrialization and a boom in international trade have led not to peace and understanding, but to increased military spending and the rise of populist nationalism. This is being encouraged by ruling elites to bolster their legitimacy in the face of social unrest.

Britain, the pioneer of the industrial revolution, was the first country to become predominantly urban, with more than half the population living in towns by 1850. Subsequent decades saw a surge in popular patriotism, with words like "chauvinism" and "jingoism" entering English political discourse (in 1851 and 1878, respectively).

Interesting theory - Rise in Urbanization leads to Rise in Nationalism

In China, as in 19th century Europe, rapid industrialization and a boom in international trade have led not to peace and understanding, but to increased military spending and the rise of populist nationalism. This is being encouraged by ruling elites to bolster their legitimacy in the face of social unrest.

Britain, the pioneer of the industrial revolution, was the first country to become predominantly urban, with more than half the population living in towns by 1850. Subsequent decades saw a surge in popular patriotism, with words like "chauvinism" and "jingoism" entering English political discourse (in 1851 and 1878, respectively).

A similar process is now under way in China, which only recently crossed the 50 percent urbanization threshold, in 2012. In the past three decades over 300 million Chinese have left the countryside for city life, experiencing the same "shock of the new" documented in Charles Dickens' novels of Victorian England. In scale, the Chinese rural-urban migration dwarfs that of Europe, where some 40 million peasants made the trek from village to town over the course of the 19th century.

Why does urbanization cause nationalism? The answer was provided by the late Ernest Gellner in his 1983 book Nations and Nationalism. In 19th century Europe, millions of peasants left behind their familiar rural communities, rooted in family, church and local traditions, to live in the anonymous, teeming townships that grew up around the mines and factories of the industrial revolution. Some of these domestic migrants turned to socialism to defend their rights and to make sense of their new world, while others joined religious revival movements. Likewise, contemporary China is witnessing a resurgence both of Maoism and religion.___

So, will she get any compensation? You could say it's her (and her lawyer's) fault that they agreed to the deal. Maybe she was actually involved and had an accomplice who did the crime, which is why she took the deal.

Not sure why plea bargaining is even permitted for murder cases. (except for the "financial" reasons...)

SOMEONE strangled a prostitute in Portland, Oregon in 2002. The police arrested Lisa Roberts, the victim’s ex-lover, who spent more than two years in custody awaiting trial. Shortly before the trial the prosecutor told Ms Roberts, via her lawyer, that tower data collected by Verizon, her mobile-telephone network, showed precisely where she was at the time of the murder. As her lawyer recalled, the prosecutor said Ms Roberts could be “pinpointed” in a park shortly before the victim’s naked and sexually assaulted corpse was found there. Shewas tol... more »

As her lawyer recalled, the prosecutor said Ms Roberts could be “pinpointed” in a park shortly before the victim’s naked and sexually assaulted corpse was found there. She was told she faced 25 years to life in prison. She accepted a deal to plead guilty and serve 15 years.

_But the high-tech evidence against her was bunk. Routinely collected tower data can place a mobile phone in a broad area, but it cannot “pinpoint” it. That would require a special three-tower “triangulation”, which cannot reveal past locations. It took a decade for Ms Roberts’s guilty plea to be thrown out. On May 28th she left prison, her criminal record clean, after nearly 12 years in custody.____

But my grocer told me it was a Herr Adolf Hitler from Braunau in Austria, and that he was leader of a tiny political group which called itself the “German National Socialist Workers Party”. He lived as a boarder in the apartment of a small artisan, wrote articles for an obscure paper called the Völkischer Beobachter, and orated in hole-and-corner meetings before audiences of a dozen or two. Out of curiosity I bought the paper once or twice, and found it a scatter-brained collection of wild anti-Jewish stories and articles interlarded with panegyrics on the Germanic race. My obliging grocer closed his information on Hitler by remarking that he frequently purchased things in his shop and was, despite his eccentric appearance, quite a pleasant fellow, though inclined to talk sixteen to the dozen about anything and everything.

The Enemy of My Enemy

✇ Nearly 125 years ago, a British bacteriologist observed that the holy waters of the Ganges and Yamuna had curious bactericidal properties, limiting the spread of cholera. It took another 20 years before two microbiologists independently proposed the existence of viruses. Observing small clearings on a lawn of dysentery-causing bacillus on an agar plate, d'Herelle coined the term bacteriophage for the virus that devours bacteria; now affectionately abbreviated to "phage".

The Enemy of My Enemy

✇ Nearly 125 years ago, a British bacteriologist observed that the holy waters of the Ganges and Yamuna had curious bactericidal properties, limiting the spread of cholera. It took another 20 years before two microbiologists independently proposed the existence of viruses. Observing small clearings on a lawn of dysentery-causing bacillus on an agar plate, d'Herelle coined the term bacteriophage for the virus that devours bacteria; now affectionately abbreviated to "phage".  

A Voracious Appetite: Found everywhere bacteria exist- in the soil, deep inside the earth's crust, within the bodies of animals and plants, and densely packed in the oceans, there are an estimated 1×10^8 different types of phages, each infecting only a specific type of bacteria.  Almost comical in appearance, a phage has its genetic material tightly packed into the capsid head, that can be injected through the stalk-like tail into the bacterial cell. Once inside, it can stage a peaceful coup (lysogenic) or burst open the bacterium (lytic) when it multiplies. It is estimated that there are up to 10^32 phages in our biosphere, destroying half the bacterial population every 48 hours! 

Microbe Hunters: d'Herelle and his fellow scientists were quick to grasp the potential of phages as antibacterials. After consuming a preparation to confirm its safety, he administered the phage to a 12-year old boy with acute dysentery. The boy fully recovered. This set off a golden era in the commercial production and use of phages, centered largely in eastern Europe and Russia. In the 1940's, companies like L'Oreal and Eli Lilly marketed products with catchy names like Bacté-coli-phage and Staphylo-gel! There were set backs (d'Herelle's science partner in Tbilisi was executed by Stalin) and with the discovery of antibiotics in the 1940's, Western scientists lost interest in this line of medical research. Unfortunately, most published studies (written in Russian or Georgian) are not accessible to the western world and clinical trials did not follow current protocols of controls, making them difficult to assess retrospectively. 

Evolutionary Arms Race: With growing resistance to antibiotics, a resurgence in phage therapy may be warranted. One advantage to phage therapy is that when bacteria develop resistance to a phage, we should be able to rapidly select (in a few days or weeks) for mutant phage versions in a tit-for-tat evolutionary arms race! Phage therapy is already around us in some form:the USDA has approved a phage spray (ListShield) that can be used on cheese, chicken, and processed meat to prevent infection with Listeria. Is this the start of a new phage in the way we treat bacterial infections? :)

+Narendra Modi is the new PM of #India & the Congress party has been kicked out! :)

The people have spoken and elected the #BJP alone to simple majority and the #NDA to almost 2/3rd supermajority in the Lok Sabha.

Now, they expect the elected leaders to fulfil their promises - or a face a rout, like the Congress this year, in the next election.

Flat Earth Society

The Flat Earth Society (also known as the International Flat Earth Society or the International Flat Earth Research Society) is an organization which aims to further the idea that the Earth is flat instead of an oblate spheroid. The modern organization was founded by Englishman Samuel Shenton in 1956 and was later led by Charles K. Johnson, who based the organization in his home in Lancaster, California. The formal society was inactive after Johnson’s death in 2001 but was resurrected in 2004 by its new president Daniel Shenton.

Flat Earth Society

The Flat Earth Society (also known as the International Flat Earth Society or the International Flat Earth Research Society) is an organization which aims to further the idea that the Earth is flat instead of an oblate spheroid. The modern organization was founded by Englishman Samuel Shenton in 1956 and was later led by Charles K. Johnson, who based the organization in his home in Lancaster, California. The formal society was inactive after Johnson’s death in 2001 but was resurrected in 2004 by its new president Daniel Shenton.

The most recent world model propagated by the Flat Earth Society holds that humanity lives on a disc, with the North Pole at its center and a 150-foot (45 m) high wall of ice at the outer edge. The resulting map resembles the symbol of the United Nations, which Johnson used as evidence for his position. In this model, the sun and moon are each 32 miles (52 km) in diameter.

 NASA employees, they say, guard this ice wall to prevent people from climbing over and falling off the disc. Earth's day and night cycle is explained by positing that the sun and moon are spheres measuring 32 miles (51 kilometers) that move in circles 3,000 miles (4,828 km) above the plane of the Earth. (Stars, they say, move in a plane 3,100 miles up.) Like spotlights, these celestial spheres illuminate different portions of the planet in a 24-hour cycle. Flat-earthers believe there must also be an invisible "antimoon" that obscures the moon during lunar eclipses.

I voted for the first time ever today in the Lok Sabha General Elections from Pune. :-)

My finger was 'inked' to indicate that I'd voted.

Lost...and Gained in Translation

"What if the translator chose to capture every originality and turn of phrase and onomatopoeic word when rendering a text into English? The words and the grammar might still pass the OED or the Wren-and-Martin test, but wouldn’t the final version be a mongrel without any literary integrity, the classic washerman’s ass, belonging neither to the home nor to the steps leading down to the river? (That didn’t sound so good in translation, did it?)

I'm not sure why the author thinks that the 'work would be without any literary integrity' - whatever that means. If it means not using any words that are not in the target language's dictionary, that's ridiculous.

I don't think there's any way you could convey the nuances of another culture to the reader without using their words. Plus, languages absorb words from other languages due to cultural, political and other influences.

*I actually like it when books introduce the actual words/phrases from the native language (the original language in case of a work translation, or of the culture depicted in the story ) to the reader (with the meaning as a footnote. Or, included cleverly in the text as a dialogue - perhaps between a tourist/disciple and a tour guide/guru ).*___

Love the animation style in "True Love Story" :) (though I'd like to watch the whole film...)

Wish the Indian film & TV industry made more than a weak half-hearted attempt at animation...and explored topics other than mythology (though I agree that there is a lot of unexplored content in that).

Sole Indian animator to win at Cannes says we should stop imitating Disney.

A man walks into a bar and says, "I just got back from the battered women's shelter, and boy are my arms tired". Everyone laughed.

The man sat at the end of the bar drinking alone. He was proud of the fine craftsmanship of the shelves he put up in the shelter's pantry, regardless of what others may think.

Lost in Translation: British and American backgrounds in Academia

Too good not to share! I read the green column and understand it the red column way. There is no confusion.

However, I struggle with the American approach of self promotional language, where you have to blatantly sell yourself and impress everyone with how awesome you are. I cringed so much when I had to do it in the US! I much prefer the British self deprecating humility, although they too can take it too far sometimes.

Look out, PwC & KPMG - Here comes AQA, Inc. (Al-Qaida Auditors )!
#Expense #Tracking #Finance #Terrorism #Audit

The convoy of cars bearing the black al-Qaida flag came at high speed, and the manager of the modest grocery store thought he was about to get robbed.

Mohamed Djitteye rushed to lock his till and cowered behind the counter. He was dumbfounded when instead, the al-Qaida commander gently opened the grocery's glass door and asked for a pot of mustard. Then he asked for a receipt.

Confused and scared, Djitteye didn't understand. So the jihadist repeated his request. Could he please have a receipt for the $1.60 purchase?

This transaction in northern Mali shows what might seem an unusual preoccupation for a terror group: Al-Qaida is obsessed with documenting the most minute expenses.

In more than 100 receipts left in a building occupied by al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb in Timbuktu earlier this year, the extremists assiduously tracked their cash flow, recording purchases as small as a single light bulb. The often tiny amounts are carefully written out in pencil and colored pen on scraps of paper and Post-it notes: The equivalent of $1.80 for a bar of soap; $8 for a packet of macaroni; $14 for a tube of super glue.

Army ants in a colony come in many sizes and shapes, each specialized for different tasks. The submajor caste- the second largest worker caste in the colony after the giant soldiers- transports unwieldy prey. Here, a submajor Eciton burchellii carries a spider back to the bivouac.
