Fraser Cain824,747Super Science Circle for October, 2013I know it's been a while, so it's time for a new Super Science Circle - the October 2013 edition.In case you weren't aware, the Super Science Circle is a list of more than 400 people who are actively engaged on Google+ and regularly post about science and education. We've got journalists, scientists, even a few astronauts. The Super Science Circle should be your best response to anyone who tells you that Google+ is just a ghost town. If you love science, this circle will deliver the goods.If you know anyone who actively posts about science, please let me know and I'll add them to the list.2013-10-04 20:14:53415304682CC G+

Fraser Cain779,548Super Science Circle - May 2013 EditionNeed more science in your Google+? Well, here's all the science you can handle! Enjoy my latest, heavily curated edition of the Super Science Circle.Please share this circle... for Science!For the uninitiated, I maintain a circle of 450+ people who are active on Google+ and regularly post on Google+. In this circle you'll find scientists, journalists, astronauts, educators, and science enthusiasts. By importing this circle into your own circles, you'll immediately gain a vibrant and fascinating feed of amazing science stories.I recognize that it might be too much science, so I suggest you create a brand new temporary circle and evaluate the people in the circle. Only transfer the keepers to your permanent circles. Then, when I update the circle next month, rinse and repeat.Are you active on G+ and regularly post about science? +mention me and I'll check out your profile.Remember, please share this post2013-05-22 19:26:51456348390CC G+
Fraser Cain770,050Super Science Circle - April 2013 EditionIt's time for another sharing of my Super Science Circle. This is a collection of 400+ active people on Google+ who often post about science. If anyone tells you G+ is a ghost town (not that anyone does any more), get them to import this circle. PLEASE SHARE THIS CIRCLE... FOR SCIENCE!I have personally reviewed each and every person on this list, to make sure that they:1. Are active and engaged on Google+2. Regularly post science-related stories on Google+In this list you'll find scientists, journalists, researchers, professors, astronauts and general science enthusiasts. Not everyone in this list is going to be to your personal liking. So what you'll want to do is import the list into a temporary circle. Then move people over one by one into more permanent locations in your circles.I'm always looking for more people to add to the list, so if you know people who meet my criteria, feel free to nominate them.Again, please share the circle.

Fraser Cain759,117The Return of the Super Science CircleOkay, I'll admit, I made a mistake in retiring the Super Science Circle. I wasn't wrong; Communities are still the future and the best way to make friends here on Google+. But I realized that the Super Science Circle is simple and efficient way to get new people to see that Google+ isn't a ghost town.PLEASE SHARE THIS POST... FOR SCIENCE!When I was attending +ScienceOnline 2013, I must have helped dozens of people join Google+, and the first thing I had them do was import this circle. It's an invaluable tool for getting new people up to speed.So, I just did a complete refresh on the circle. I examined every single member and judged them according to my two-part criteria:1. Active in the last 30 days or so.2. Regularly post on scientific topics.If you know anyone who might make a good candidate for this circle, please let me know.As always, import this circle into a new, temporary circle, and then you can refresh it when I share a new version.DON'T FORGET TO SHARE THIS POST2013-03-19 22:39:3139967163160CC G+
Max Huijgen41,136Europe calling: the old giant wakes up and calls on its peeps! A new circle of Europeans as I promised long ago to connect the people who responded and share them. See for the first shared circle this post https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/PDUi13o9dB1The original post was shared 225 times. You can find it here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/CdhmHGbYjgiPart 2 is still open and can be found here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/NDAhG4fP2a7If you didn´t do so already, post there and as long as I have spots free, I will circle you as I want to see my streams come alive during European hours.There was a shared feeling that it would be great to get some attention from G+ for Europe with official hangouts from the community managers during European times, feature roll-outs from Google no longer restricted to the US, having some central point to share European circles and last but not least the desire to have hangouts without having to burn the midnight oil. To help solve this and get Europeans together on the same page I created +Europeans on G+  It already has multiple managers out of the community and that initiative recently span off +European Photo  but feel to offer a bit of your time for this community project. Circle the page if you didn´t already do so. We need more peeps from all over Europe to participate and enjoy G+I hope these posts can do the rounds through Europe and gets us firmly on the G+ map. So even if you´re not European yourself, but sympathize with the initiatives to form a community here, help spread the word and share it.And don´t forget: we all love the other continents and most of us have circles which encompass the whole world. So it´s not against others, but pro us :)2013-03-15 15:05:14291532075CC G+

Fraser Cain694,882The Final Super Science CircleWell, this is it, this is going to be the last posting of the Super Science Circle. Why? Communities, that's why. In case you didn't know, I've been maintaining my Super Science Circle from the very beginning of Google+. As soon as the feature to share circles was enabled, I was happy to share those circles around into Google. I did this because it was very difficult for people with related interests (science) to be able to find each other. I wanted new G+ users to realize this place isn't a ghost town; there are vibrant groups of people actively discussing scientific topics.But it was a hack. Each month took me almost an entire day to curate down the list of people, remove the inactive, and incorporate newly active people who often posted about science. And it was always imperfect. Some people got a massive boost in followers and engagement, while other, equally deserving people were left out.It was inelegant, inefficient and arbitrary.But now you can do this all on your own. You can go into any Community that matches your interest and instantly discover thousands of people who share your enthusiasm for a topic - just joining a Community will bring a trickle of posts about topics that interest you back into your stream. Keep your participation in the Community, or circle the most interesting people and harvest them back into your own stream.In the coming months, I'll be suggesting Communities you should join, instead of people you should circle. Thanks to everyone for using the shared circles and helping science get such a firm foothold here on Google+. Thanks to all the past and present members of the Super Science Circle for sharing such wonderful stuff.Science!2013-01-17 02:59:31420544084CC G+

Slavo Herman180I'd like to share with you the circle in which a little surprisingly I discovered my name. It is a circle with people who got one nomination to "Best of Google Plus 2012" created as the Circle No. 3 by +Kurt Smith.(He also created two more circles, No. 1 and 2, containing people with more nominations - you can find them at http://goo.gl/tAePD and http://goo.gl/7IBkV respectively :)2013-01-07 16:40:4448423115CC G+
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 20:58:1649052430CC G+
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?

Peter Smalley (Merkabah)10,068#sharedpubliccircles   #science  It's been a while since I shared a circle. Let's fix that, shall we? Here is my Circle of Science. Here you will find people who are practicing scientists, science writers, and science enthusiasts - and sometimes all three at once. There are biologists, chemists, physicists, microbiologists, food safety scientists, mathematicians, neurologists, astronomers and many other disciplines represented here. But regardless of their specialties they are intelligent, interested, and interesting.I won't call this a curated circle per se, but I can personally speak to quality of many of these individuals. Many of them are true gems.FOR SCIENCE!2012-11-26 17:29:545015211CC G+
Paul Christen0To the person that originally shared this circle with me (I forgot who...)Thank you.I am getting really tired of the glorification of stupid and the vilification of intelligence. I am afraid that its a systemic problem and frankly, I see no end in sight. Its similar to American politics in many ways."Well sure, professional athletes shouldn't rape women, but the dood can throw a football!" "Well, yeah, he ran a dog fighting ring, but let him play football and be a role model to  children anyway."We had a President, that was re-elected, that on any scale was a buffoon at best.The list goes on, and lets not forget the other side  of the  proverbial  coin, how often have we heard politicians talk about the "elite smart people"?Watch an episode or two of "Big Bang Theory". REALLY funny show, I refuse to watch it. I saw two episodes and both portrayed intelligence as negative.I heard an adult say (and I shit you not) "Kids don't need to learn what the mathematical median is, its useless knowledge, average is good enough." I tried to explain how it differs from average and how knowing the average and the median can help get a better view of the data (no point in going too deep) and got "nope, not needed".Whatever, I'm ranting and off the rails here.Do what you need to do to keep YOUR intelligence up and those around you, for the love  of Xenu, fight the good fight. Following this  circle  might help.2012-11-07 13:15:584135110CC G+

M Monica0My 75 Secret Weapons Circle I don't often share circles, because I don't usually see the need.But this is the one circle I check most often, on a daily basis, and I end up resharing from it most often. So here it is, my secret weapon circle: Folks who post a lot of science like +Philip Plait  are in here, as well as +Rajini Rao  and +Betsy McCall  The insightful commentary and daily curated threads of  +Alex Grossman are important in my stream too, as is the humor of +Steve Barry.  +Natalie Villalobos is in there for her beautiful yoga pictures, which always relax me.  +James Williams for digging up the best articles and also funny pics.  +Chase Sterling  for her blog, +Melissa Carlson  as an excellent news anchor using Plus. +P E Sharpe  for her off the wall style humor, (and stunning art.)  When I look at this list I'm amazed by the quality of people I've been able to meet here.  This circle does have a handful of well known folks like +Mike Elgan  and +Larry Fournillier, +Amanda Blain,  in here. (Just because they're well known does not mean they are not high quality.) But there are also some pages you may not be so familiar with like  +Liz Krane, +Sonny Williamson, +2012-10-16 12:20:437525531CC G+

Arne O. Mooers, a Simon Fraser University biologist who oversaw the study, said in a statement, “[We] found that if we prioritize threatened birds by their distinctness, we actually preserve very close to the maximum possible amount of evolution…This means our method can identify those species we cannot afford to lose and it can be used to preserve the information content represented by all species into the future. Both are major goals for conservation biology.”

Could golf courses actually boost conservation?

There are 18,300 golf courses in the United States, encompassing some 2.7 million acres. University of Missouri, Colombia biologist Mark J. Mackey put it this way: “golf has become an appreciable portion of land use in the United States.” In a new paper recently published in the journal Landscape and Urban Planning, Mackey and colleagues explain that understanding the impact of intensively groomed golf courses on the surrounding ecology isn’t as simple as “good” or “bad.” Instead, they argue that studies of golf course ecology should focus on particular target organisms, the so-called canaries in the golf course coal mine, whose responses to the altered ecology might help researchers to better understand the impacts of golf landscaping more broadly.

Should We Close The High Seas To Fishing?

The ocean is a big place, but not all seas are created equal. While 58% of the seas are classified as “high seas,” and open to access from all nations, there are over 150 exclusive economic zones (EEZs), which are the sole domain of the countries that operate them. EEZs comprise the remaining 42% of the ocean. The patchwork quilt of economic interests that blanket the ocean pose a problem for the fish who live there and the fisheries that exploit those fish.

When we imagine enormous cities of the future, we don't always think about how they might change our behavior in urban areas. But these architectural proposals don't just look gorgeously futuristic — they're designed to be social and environmental experiments.

All lawns are not created equal

Here’s a fun fact: residential lawns cover more of the United States than any other irrigated crop, and that includes the corn and soy that blanket the Midwest. Common knowledge was once that no matter the underlying climate, a lawn in Charlotte, North Carolina would be more or less indistinguishable from a lawn in San Francisco, California. On the surface, that appears to be true. The diversity of plant species, the relative presence of nutrients in soil, and the extent of surface water seem to be identical among cities, even in different climates. But new research published last week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests that there’s more lawn diversity than at first it may seem.

Let slip the elephants of war...

Without elephants, the ancient Library of Alexandria might not have existed.

In the classical era, it was the race to build elephant armies that changed the world.

Why do animals adopt? - my latest at +BBC Future

Is adopting a child a benevolent or a foolish act? If you were taking a cold evolutionary perspective, it would appear to be the latter.

For foster parents, there are huge costs involved, with no promise of passing on genes. Scientists have long been interested in adoption, because it seems to be wholly altruistic. But this makes it especially perplexing in animals, who do not have the cultural influences we do. So could taking a closer look at adoption in non-humans shed any light on why it’s so common?

Hillemann points out that postponing an action in favor for a future, better option may pay off in more abstract social situations as well, and not just for corvids. When it comes to mating, you might prefer spending your time and energy seeking out an ideal partner, rather than focusing on the first available. "[And] while arguing with your supervisor, you should hold back in the heat of the moment in order to keep your job," she says.

Why Elephants Can Recognize Human Voices - go check out my new column at io9!

Humans are the most significant threat to elephants after lions, but not all humans pose the same threats. New research published today in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reports that elephants' memory is so good that they can distinguish the voices of different human ethnic groups, as well as among humans of different sexes and ages.

Giving Psychological Science Away Online - I have a piece in this month's issue of the Association for Psychological Science Observer Magazine.

In many ways, the rapid evolution of the Internet and online social media has provided psychologists with a better platform for “giving away” psychology than ever before. In an average scientific conference or undergraduate classroom, a psychological scientist might be able to reach an audience of several hundred individuals. By writing about psychology for a print magazine such as Scientific American or Discover, that scientist might reach an audience several orders of magnitude larger. Still, a monthly distribution of over a million subscribers for a national print magazine barely approaches the monthly usage of online platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and blogs.

Ailing dolphins founds in aftermath of 2010 gulf oil spill - my latest at the +Washington Post

For eighty-seven days in 2010, 210 million gallons of oil from wells below the Deepwater Horizon poured into the Gulf of Mexico. Researchers announced recently that as a result, Bottlenose dolphins in Louisiana’s Barataria Bay are suffering from a host of maladies, including lung disease and adrenal problems. They’re also losing their teeth. The research was conducted in August 2011, by a team of governmental, academic, and non-governmental scientists as part of the post-spill Natural Resource Damage Assessment.

To understand what the effects of oil contamination were on marine mammals like dolphins and whales, the team conducted health assessments on thirty-two Barataria Bay dolphins in 2011, a site chosen because that area was heavily oiled during and after the spill. The teamcom... more »

Cows Learn Better With Friends - my latest at +Scientific American on cattle cognition and farm animal welfare.

Animal welfare researcher Charlotte Gaillard of the University of British Columbia wondered whether, like rats, cows also benefit in terms of cognitive development from social housing early in life. After investigating the literature, she discovered that no study had ever directly assessed cognitive performance in juvenile dairy cattle as a function of social or isolated housing. Perhaps the dearth of research is because livestock are usually thought of primarily in functional terms as providers of milk or meat, leather or labor. Her research was published this week in PLoS ONE.

Saving Orangutans, One Zoo Visitor At A Time - my piece this week at Conservation Magazine is about a successful awareness campaign at +Zoos Victoria's Melbourne Zoo.

Do you know what sodium lauryl sulfate is? How about sodium laureth sulfate? It’s in a lot of the processed foods you see at the supermarket. Its use also directly threatens one of our great ape cousins, the orangutans. As the rainforests of Sumatra and Borneo are cleared to produce timber and to expand palm oil plantations, the orangs are losing their homes. When people purchase products that contain palm oil, demand for the product goes up, and rainforest destruction accelerates. In recent years, public education efforts have begun to increase knowledge about the relationship between palm oil and orangutan conservation. But even the most conscientious shopper can be fooled into buying products with palm oil int... more »

Can humans throw better than animals? - My latest at +BBC Future. What does throwing ability say about what it means to be human?

In 1975, PJ Darlington of Harvard University's Museum of Comparative Zoology claimed throwing with precision or accuracy is a uniquely human trait. "No other animal can throw as man does," he wrote. Darlington described a study in which wild chimpanzees threw 44 objects, but only successfully struck their target five times, and then only when they were within 2m (6.6ft). "Other primates do throw sticks and stones, but only awkwardly…Compare this with human throwing. A skillful man has a good chance to break the skull of another man with one stone at 30m (100ft)," he added.

Clash of the Tiny: One Pushy Squirrel & The Turf War for LA - my latest at +Nautilus Magazine.

The fact that eastern fox squirrels are so flexible and resourceful is the most important reason they can survive in these new habitats. But their ability to invade the entire Los Angeles basin was largely due to the thousands of miles of aerial telephone cables criss-crossing the region, forming a squirrel-friendly highway system. It allowed them to avoid dogs, cats, and cars, squirrels’ primary enemies in cities, and also to colonize new areas.

How do wildlife vets humanely euthanize stranded whales? One hint: It takes a really, really long needle. My latest at +The Guardian.

On 26 January 2009, veterinarian Craig Harms and his team were called to a beach on North Carolina's Outer Banks where a two-year-old male right whale calf was stranded. Harms is a professor of aquatic, wildlife and zoologic medicine at North Carolina State University, and as part of his job he sometimes gets called out to examine beached whales. When they're too ill or too injured to survive, whales sometimes seem to strand themselves intentionally on our shores.

Ethics at the Zoo: The Case of Marius the Giraffe - this is complicated stuff, folks. Here's my take on the story, at +Scientific American.

In the earliest days of the modern zoological park, zoos did not have this problem. The problem, instead, was just keeping animals alive. When animals died, new animals had to be caught from the wild to replace them. In the intervening decades our ethics have evolved (in the vast majority of cases, wild animals are no longer imported to zoos), our scientific understanding of reproductive physiology and veterinary medicine have grown by leaps and bounds, and best practices for husbandry and management have improved. As a result, in many cases, we now face the challenge of limiting population growth.
