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 15:25:36432633258CC 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 18:43:1925810076128CC G+

Casting Light on Sound to See its Shadow

"When light passes between areas of different air density, it bends. You've probably noticed the way distant pavement seems to shimmer on a hot day, or the way stars appear to twinkle. You're seeing light that has been distorted as it passes through varying air densities, which are in turn created by varying temperatures and pressures.

In the mid-19th century, German physicist August Toepler invented a photography technique called Schlieren Flow Visualization to visually capture these changes in density. The setup is a bit hard to explain in words (watch the video above for a full explanation) but it allows scientists and engineers to see things that are normally invisible: the rising heat from a candle, the turbulence around an airplane wing, the plume of a sneeze.

It can also be used to see sound. Sound, after... more »

The Easter Puppy
Another holiday goes to the dogs....

My friend +Milena Head has some of the cutest puppies, and she also takes some of the best shots of them dressed in all sorts of costumes (e.g., this superhero themed shot she did for Halloween...: http://goo.gl/Y3zYGg)

Now Charlie is in the running for the TLC Pet Food Easter Pet Photo Contest. It's being run off another social network, but it's still a lot of fun to see all the Easter Pets. Since as far as I know, Jacques le Dogue (who is sort of family, since he lives with one of my cousins in New Orleans...) is not in the running, I'm throwing my vote behind Charlie. 

If you want to see all the pets, and cast your vote for Charlie or another of your favourites, you can see them here:  http://goo.gl/av6rqf

Nature’s Mistakes With Frogs - And They Are Beautiful
science & art

Since 1996, visual artist and biologist Brandon Ballengée has been fascinated with the physical deformities of amphibians. As you can see, his interest goes beyond his extensive scientific research on the topic. In an ongoing art project entitled Malamp: Reliquaries, Ballengée uses the unique process of “clearing and staining” biological specimens to highlight the hidden beauty in terminally deformed frogs.

Heartbleed explained xkcd style

By now, most people will have heard about Heartbleed, and the programmer responsible for the bug has even been named. But in the mad rush to change all your passwords, remember that unless the vulnerable sites already have patched the Heartbleed hole, entering a new password just makes that password vulnerable too.

Not all sites used the vulnerable protocol, and not all that did have fixed the vulnerability yet. But groups like +Mashable are compiling lists of where you're good to go in creating a new password: http://mashable.com/2014/04/09/heartbleed-bug-websites-affected/

If you're like me, you've had a lot of fun recently trying to think up new passwords, each one more complex and less memorable than the next. UCB's Horse+Horse created this comedic take on passwords a few years ago, but it is more relevant now than ever....

Enjoy, and know that you're not alone in your quest for the perfect password(s).

The Statistician's Sport

Using pitch location data, researchers examined how umpires' biases affect their calls. Surprise - the home team's strike zone is significantly larger than the visitor's team. But status matters too - all-star pitchers get the benefit of a larger strike zone than pitchers who've never been to the All Star Game. And pitchers with a reputation for precision benefit for more called strikes which were actually balls, than pitchers with a reputation for wildness (Greg Maddux vs. Randy Johnson, for example).

Relativistic Baseball
What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball moving at 90% of the speed of light?

Baseball season is in full swing, and inquiring minds want to know not only which team will make it all the way (will this finally be the year for my beloved Cubbies?? Probably not...), but also how does science intersect with baseball?

+Erin Kane shared a great post with +ScienceSunday on the ways in which individual umpire's biases and expectations influence the size of the strike zone they call (strike zones shrink for pitchers viewed as having good accuracy and grow for those viewed as being more on the wild side; strike zones are smaller for All Star players than for non All Star players; and race even comes into play a bit, with umps shrinking the strike zone for Caucasian pitchers than for African-American pitchers...). You can read that wholes... more »

Smallest rotary motor in biology, the ATP synthase. All the work done in your body is fueled by breaking a chemical bond in ATP, the “currency of energy”. Did you know that you convert your body weight (or an estimated 50 kg) of ATP per day?!

Where does this ATP come from? It is synthesized by an incredibly sophisticated molecular machine, the ATP synthase, embedded in the inner membrane of our mitochondria. Energy from the oxidation of food results in protons being pumped across the membrane to create a proton gradient. The protons drive the rotation of a circular ring of proteins in the membrane that in turn move a central shaft. The shaft interacts sequentially with one of 3 catalytic sites within a hexamer, making ATP (little butterflies in the movie!). The ATP synthase rotates about 150 times/second

To visualize the rotation under a microscope, a verylon... more »

2nd clue image for #ISeeTheWorldWithScience , Round 3

1st Teaser for #ISeeTheWorldWithScience , Round 3 is here:
http://goo.gl/qwOiTU

This round of  #ISeeTheWorldWithScience is dedicated to +Allison Sekuler and +Mark Bruce. A very happy birthday to both of them.

I'll post a final image tomorrow. +Candy Gray guessed In part *humorous + a type of *macaroni. That sums up the first image but that's just part of the picture. I'll comment with another clue before the final image.

If you want to guess what the specimen is, tell me something interesting about it but don't say what your guess is. I get annoyed when people don't follow instructions, maybe because I'm an engineer. So please don't blurt out the answer. In the past it has been fun to try to decipher the... more »

Thanks All!

It was nice to see +Google+ had arranged a personal doodle for me (and my other March 27 kindred spirits, +Mark Bruce , +Eustace James ,  +Kirk Jordan  and others!).

But... I think I broke the system trying to say thank you to each and every person who sent me a nice message. So if I've missed you, consider this a downpayment on a personal thanks, and once I'm allowed to comment again, I'll get back to it.

Even if it takes me until this time next year, I'll try to thank you all for making it such a great year!

Glassbrain flythrough HighEnd Realtime-Visualization of Brains

This is an anatomically-realistic 3D brain visualization depicting real-time source-localized activity (power and “effective” connectivity) from EEG (electroencephalographic) signals. Each color represents source power and connectivity in a different frequency band (theta, alpha, beta, gamma) and the golden lines are white matter anatomical fiber tracts. Estimated information transfer between brain regions is visualized as pulses of light flowing along the fiber tracts connecting the regions.

The modeling pipeline includes MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) brain scanning to generate a high-resolution 3D model of an individual’s brain, skull, and scalp tissue, DTI (Diffusion Tensor Imaging) for reconstructing white matter tracts, and BCILAB / SIFT to remove artifacts and statistically reconstruct thelocat... more »

Fashion Remix for my Niece!
Featuring a jacket I bought her ;)

I don't post much personal stuff here, but this is so cool, I had to share with all my G+nius friends!

My niece, Sophia, who is a figure skater and an aspiring model/actress, made it onto *+Seventeen mag's video show, Fashion Remix!*

Take a look at the episode here, and let me know what you think of her remix. Pay careful attention to her studded varsity jacket because that was one of my birthday presents to her a few months ago, so I was really excited to see that it made the fashion cut for the show! My fashion sense is validated, at least for the Seventeen crowd :)

I particularly like the spring/summer dress with her lace jacket. Let me know what you guys like best, and give a thumbs up on YouTube if you can so Sophia knows you liked it.

Balloons

I've had a crazy schedule, so didn't manage to get shots for +Chrysta Rae 's Photography Scavenger Hunt this round (check out her page to see the action though - there are some amazing albums there).

So, feeling a little left out of the fun, I thought I'd play around with the new Snapseed photo editing tools built into G+ to update one of my very first scavenger hunt shots. This was from the summer hunt in 2012, and, as you might guess, the topic was balloons.  I'd intended to shoot some bursting water balloons, but ended up using the bursted balloons instead :)

Looking forward to the days when it's warm enough once again to shoot water balloons without them freezing....

Why, just today I was in a meeting where a proposed document had a misplaced comma that completely changed the meaning of the text.

Honey, where'd we leave the keys kids?
Female cowbird brains better than male at spatial memory

The story usually goes that males perform better than females on a range of spatial navigation and memory tasks - that's true in humans and a wide variety of other species. But not so for brown-headed cowbirds. In this species, females seem to have the edge.

It's thought that the superiority of males in spatial memory is linked to evolutionary demands. For example, polygynous male voles have to keep track of their mates over a wide range of locations, and they have a larger hippocampus (the region of the brain most closely linked to spatial memory) and perform better on spatial memory tasks than females of the same species; in contrast, in monogamous voles, no such sex differences exist.

Life on the Ice: Uncovering the Mysteries of Curling

h/t to the BBC for teaming up with naturalist Sir David Attenborough to describe the seemingly odd rituals of curlers.

“And off she goes: gently but flamboyantly launching the oversized walnut down the frozen river... The alpha female’s job is complete. It’s now up to the herd to frantically follow the walnut down the river, gently frisking the foreground.”

Anyone who has played or watched curling will vouch for the authenticity of Attenborough's description.

What Attenborough doesn't describe, though, is the post-game ritual of the winning team buying the losing team drinks. Suffice it to say that the one time I curled, my team ended the evening with their bellies full of lager and their pockets still full of money....

The effect of sex on athletic performance

A perfect combination of topics for an Olympic Valentine's Day....

After the 2012 games, Sam Alipour ( +ESPN ) described athletes' reports "on record about parties, sex, orgies and some things that would make even Dennis Rodman blush." (You can read the whole story here: http://goo.gl/BWupTq ;))

As noted in the video here, the championship companionship may have some postitive benefits for athletes in the right sports.

Science Fairs: Inspiring the Next Generation of Scientists

I had the privilege of serving as a judge in the Grade 8 and 9 science fair at Hillfield Strathallan College last week, and it was amazing the vast variety of topics and approaches the students took in their projects.

I served as a judge for the project Kneed a Break included in the video below, where the students created a model knee based on physiology and anatomy they'd learned, and used the model to measure the impact on different parts of the knee from a range of activities. What impressed me most in that project, and in so many others, was the extent of knowledge the students had acquired just in planning their projects, as well as the students' passion for the topics of their projects.

My Cousin is Throwing a Party!
Can geneology help create a kinder, gentler world?

When you think of a large family reunion, normally you'd expect a few hundred peolple to attend. But what if you are trying to set a new record for World's Largest Family Reunion?

My cousin a-bunch-of-times removed, AJ Jacobs (connected through my fathers +Robert Sekuler 's side) is planning just such an event. To meet his mark, he needs to surpass the record set back in 2012 by the Porteau-Boileve family, who had 4,514 family members in attendance. My family and I will be there in 2015 to help make the mark - who could pass up a trip to be part of this while visiting the NY Hall of Science??

Through his geneological search, including the spit for science approach of 23andMe, he's uncovered distant cousins he never expected, including Gwyneth Paltrow,... more »

Dear All Science Sunday-ers,

Modern Cognitive Neuroscience is a tricky business. It ain't all brain scans, localization of function, and face areas of the brain -- many tools are used. Here, in the attached pictures, are two examples. The first picture is of a transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) device. One way to think about how TMS works is that it uses an oscillating magnetic field to set up an electrical current within your brain. Unlike traditional electrical stimulation, TMS does not hurt and does not (typically) induce seizures. With TMS, neuroscientists can ask questions about whether shutting down or turning off a particular area of the brain changes behavior (trust me, it ain't that simple, but let's play pretend).

TMS is much better a for asking "where" questions in the brain than the subtractive method used with fMRI (functional magnetic resonance... more »

BEEutiful Bees
The science and art of bees

When most people think of a bee, black and yellow stripes probably come to mind. But there are over 4,000 different types of bee species in North America, and as these images show, bees come in many different shapes and sizes. The vast variety of bees makes it difficult for people to identify them, and their range in sizes - including some smaller than half a grain of rice - makes them difficult to photograph with any detail.

But USGS's +Sam Droege has made it his mission to catalog every species of bee in North America, and the images here show just a few examples of what you'll find in that catalog (http://goo.gl/jZ8oMD)
