Lee Smallwood22,777Outstanding Contribution to G+ CircleActions [sometimes] speak louder than words - spoken or otherwise...Which is why I want to share this circle in particular. It contains people that go beyond the norm and their contributions to G+ are second to none.There maybe some familiar faces contained within it and some not so well known... However, together they create an entertaining and thought provoking content stream that I can't do without on a daily basis.Seriously consider adding them to your circles :) #circleshare  2013-05-10 10:51:3613625219

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 16:40:4448423115

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?

Lee Smallwood17,450For my Friday #CircleShare  this week, I wanted to intro you to a small circle of people I couldn't be without here on G+. They not just a bunch of typical people, but are personalities that have fantastic opinions and ideals.Some you may know already and some you might not ... but either way you should get to know them better. They enrich my stream here on G+ and I know that the engagement you'll have with them will brighten up your day.The only thing I would like to increase is the amount of time I have to spend with them... #dunbarCircle  2012-10-26 15:31:1515730319
Lee Smallwood16,997This is the first time I'm sharing this circle - It's my #Dunbar  circlehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunbar's_numberThey're quite an eclectic bunch (which is why I can't do without their content and banter) on a day-to-day basis.If you haven't met them on G+ yet - be sure to say hello to them :)As a follow up to this, create a #DunbarCircle  and add a link in the comments below - for the people you couldn't do without.NOTE No precise value has been proposed for Dunbar's number. It has been proposed to lie between 100 and 230, with a commonly used value of 150So you can decide how many plussers are in yours :) #circleshare  2012-10-12 16:18:1715048525
John Kellden10,222Social Curation, part 6: Social Curators v3"...what watch? Ten watch. Such much?"Subterranean Homesick Blues:+Bradley HorowitzPearltrees:+Oliver StarrSocial curation - an evolving set of buckets:1. Social media - which to me boils down to getting your story, your brand straight in this new networked, participatory, two-way market.2. Social business - including a large part of the startup scene, and also things like hackerspaces, 3D-printing, large companies struggling to adopt a new more social culture...3. Social signal - the whole analysis/symthesis thing, where we'll help each other understand what is going on, whether deeper learning, social learning, peer learning, informal learning, a quiet pervasive revolution happening as we speak.4. Social practices - where we share success stories, business cases , hangouts and experiential stuff, assessing what works and what doesnt.5. Social innovation and transformation - the difficult, complex, slightly less accessible corner - how global and local intersect, design thinking, narrative, sensemaking, semiosis, patterns, culture, transitions. I wouldn't be at all surprised if you all would find the odd post from me here. :)Social cocreation is da shiznitMy intention here is to honour two principles - one, the cocreated nature of this circle, since it is all about social curation. Two, if at all possible, provide an as rich and diverse signal as possible, for the benefit of all other Google plussers in need of our various social curation insights.Social curation: how we shape our content and how it shapes us in returnThere is quite probably as many different takes on social curation as there are people in this circle, and then some.Whither Dunbar? - What size circles?Keeping this circle under two hundred people thereabouts, might be a good size for new google plussers should they want to derive benefit from the gathered collective intelligence from this bunch of social curators.2012-09-26 07:52:4314620522

A man believed to be a recreational drone operator accidently crashed a small device onto the White House grounds early Monday, investigators said, briefly triggering a lockdown and reinforcing concerns about security at the executive mansion.
The man later called the Secret Service and explained that he never intended for his two-foot-wide “quadcopter” to breach White House security, the investigators said. They said the agency was working to corroborate his account.
The Secret Service said the drone operator contacted the agency voluntarily at 9:30 a.m. Monday, more than six hours after the device crashed, and was being cooperative. It did not immediately identify the person.

A man believed to be a recreational drone operator accidently crashed a small device onto the White House grounds early Monday, investigators said, briefly triggering a lockdown and reinforcing concerns about security at the executive mansion.
The man later called the Secret Service and explained that he never intended for his two-foot-wide “quadcopter” to breach White House security, the investigators said. They said the agency was working to corroborate his account.
The Secret Service said the drone operator contacted the agency voluntarily at 9:30 a.m. Monday, more than six hours after the device crashed, and was being cooperative. It did not immediately identify the person.
The crash caused a lockdown at the compound until the device was recovered and examined, the Secret Service said.
The service later said it questioned a person who called to “self-report” the incident and that “initial indications” pointed to a “recreational use” of the drone.
The latest security breach at the executive mansion came as President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama were visiting India, but their two daughters remained behind in Washington.
The Secret Service statement identified the object as a “quad copter,” a commercially available drone with four propellers.
“There was an immediate alert and lockdown of the complex until the device was examined and cleared,” the statement said. “An investigation is underway to determine the origin of this commercially available device, motive, and to identify suspects.”
In its subsequent update, on the incident, the Secret Service said: “An individual called the Secret Service this morning at approximately 9:30 a.m. to self-report that they had been in control of the quad copter device that crashed on the White House grounds early this morning. The individual has been interviewed by Secret Service agents and been fully cooperative. Initial indications are that this incident occurred as a result of recreational use of the device.”
The statement added: “This investigation continues as the Secret Service conducts corroborative interviews, forensic examinations and reviews all other investigative leads.”
Earlier, White House press secretary Josh Earnest, speaking to reporters in New Delhi, said the device did not pose a threat to the building or the first family.
The Service said the drone was spotted about 3:08 a.m. flying at a low altitude onto the White House grounds, crashing on the southeastern side.
It was not immediately clear whether the Obama children, Malia and Sasha, were at the White House when the device was discovered before dawn. They were under the care of their grandmother, who also lives at the White House.
“There is a device that has been recovered by the Secret Service at the White House,” Earnest said when asked if a drone was found. “The early indications are that it does not pose any sort of ongoing threat to anybody at the White House.”
Around 5 a.m., authorities could be seen searching the White House grounds with flashlights. Investigators continued the search after sunrise as a light snow fell. The lockdown was later lifted.
The incident follows a series of lapses in security at the White House and a shake-up in the leadership at the Secret Service.
In September, a knife-wielding man scaled the fence at the White House and ran through much of the mansion’s main floor. An armed private security contractor in Atlanta also boarded an elevator with Obama that same month.
In a series of reports, The Washington Post disclosed how the Secret Service failed to respond well after a gunman shot at the White House in 2011. That incident raised major concerns among lawmakers.
Small drones previously have violated the highly restricted airspace near the White House and the Capitol.
About 7:30 pm on July 3, a Secret Service patrol detained an individual who was flying a small quadcopter drone in President’s Park, about one block from the White House grounds, according to an incident report filed with the Federal Aviation Administration.
The camera-equipped drone was flying about 100 feet in the air near the statue of Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, close to the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and 15th Street NW. The FAA report noted that the drone was confiscated by the Secret Service but did not identify the pilot or elaborate on whether charges were filed.
A three-mile area around the White House, called the P56 zone, is a permanent no-fly zone. All pilots are warned to steer clear though standard “notices to airmen,” and they are given emergency alerts if they come close to crossing the line.
Drones have violated that airspace on at least three other occasions in the past six months.
On Aug. 29, the U.S. Capitol Police reported detaining an individual for flying a small drone on the Capitol grounds, according to an FAA incident report that gave no further details.
Ten days earlier, on Aug. 19, District police arrested an unidentified man after they found him stuck in a tree in Freedom Plaza, just east of the White House at the intersection of 14th Street NW and Pennsylvania Avenue. According to an FAA report, the man had climbed up the tree to fetch a small drone that he had been flying when it got caught in the branches.
And on July 7, another person was questioned by the U.S. Park Police for flying a small quadcopter drone in the vicinity of the Lincoln Memorial, according to an FAA incident report that gave no other details.
A boom in sales of small consumer drones in recent years has triggered hundreds of other incidents around the country in which the remotely controlled aircraft have buzzed dangerously close to passenger planes, rescue helicopters and sports stadiums, according to FAA data.
Quadcopters also have been linked to smuggling attempts, including a failed bid last year to transport drugs into a Dublin prison. Last week, a quadcopter carrying 6.6 pounds of methamphetamine from suspected Mexican traffickers crashed into a supermarket parking lot in San Ysidro, Calif.
While the White House grounds are an especially sensitive area, drone operators have gotten into trouble elsewhere in the Washington region.
On Oct. 6, for example, Prince George’s County police arrested at least two people for flying a white drone over FedEx Field about one hour before the Washington Redskins kicked off against the Seattle Seahawks during a nationally televised Monday Night Football matchup, according to an FAA incident report. The drone, which was equipped with red and blue lights, was spotted flying about 150 feet over the stadium, according to the report, which did not identify the suspects or give further details.
A recent incident involving a drone crashing in front of German Chancellor Angela Merkel during a campaign event reinforced the possible dangers posed.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has been investigating the Service’s recent security lapses and said Monday in a phone interview that the incident is “deeply concerning”.
“These kinds of threats are not going away. But I do believe they are on top of it,” he said of the Service.
He stressed that the problems with drones is they are easily accessible.
“Anybody can go down to RadioShack and buy one of these. It could be a guy down by the river in his van or it could be a nefarious terrorist,” Chaffetz said. “You just don’t know.”
Zezima reported from New Delhi. Dana Hedgpeth, Brian Murphy and William Branigin in Washington contributed to this report.___

Melvin Gordon, CEO who built empire from Tootsie Rolls, dies.
CHICAGO — Melvin Gordon, who helped turn the enduring popularity of the humble Tootsie Roll into a candy empire, has died. He was 95.
The longtime Tootsie Roll Industries Inc. chairman and CEO died Tuesday in Boston after a brief illness, said Brooke Vane, a spokeswoman for the company's public relations firm. Gordon ran the Chicago-based confectioner for 53 years, overseeing the manufacture of 64 million Tootsie Rolls a day and other sweets including Junior Mints, Charleston Chews and Tootsie Pops.
The penny candy patriarch worked a full schedule until last month, the company said. He was the oldest CEO of a company trading on a major U.S. stock exchange, according to S&P Capital IQ.

Melvin Gordon, CEO who built empire from Tootsie Rolls, dies.
CHICAGO — Melvin Gordon, who helped turn the enduring popularity of the humble Tootsie Roll into a candy empire, has died. He was 95.
The longtime Tootsie Roll Industries Inc. chairman and CEO died Tuesday in Boston after a brief illness, said Brooke Vane, a spokeswoman for the company's public relations firm. Gordon ran the Chicago-based confectioner for 53 years, overseeing the manufacture of 64 million Tootsie Rolls a day and other sweets including Junior Mints, Charleston Chews and Tootsie Pops.
The penny candy patriarch worked a full schedule until last month, the company said. He was the oldest CEO of a company trading on a major U.S. stock exchange, according to S&P Capital IQ.
Gordon celebrated the Tootsie Roll's 100th anniversary in 1996 by touring the Chicago factory with an Associated Press reporter. He scooped up one of the warm, gooey candies from the assembly line and tasted it, saying: "There's nothing like a hot Tootsie Roll."
He boasted that Tootsie Rolls were almost indestructible.
"Nothing can happen to a Tootsie Roll. We have some that were made in 1938 that we still eat," Gordon told the AP in 1996. "If you can't bite it when it's that old, you certainly can lick it."
Tootsie Rolls were invented in 1896 by New York City candy maker Leo Hirshfield, who named it for his 5-year-old daughter, Clara, his little Tootsie.
Tootsie Pops, which are lollipops with Tootsie Roll centers, have been around for more than 80 years. A 1970 TV commercial posed the question: "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?" The company says on its website that it's received 20,000 letters from children claiming to have solved the mystery, and the gimmick has migrated to social media, where a bespectacled character named Mr. Owl tweets the question.
Tootsie Roll has been listed on the New York Stock Exchange since 1922. Gordon, a Boston native, married into the business in 1950 when he wed Ellen Rubin, whose father, William Rubin, was president of Sweets Co. Of America. Gordon changed the company's name to Tootsie Roll in 1966.
Gordon's wife of 65 years, Ellen Gordon, has been named chairman and CEO by its board, the company said Wednesday. She had been serving as company president and chief operating officer.
"Melvin's life represented the very highest values in business, wisdom, generosity, and integrity. Tootsie Roll has seen great growth and success during his time as Chairman," Ellen Gordon said in a statement.

FBI: NY Assembly speaker arrested, to appear in court later
Associated Press
New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who has been one of the most powerful men in Albany for more than two decades, was arrested Thursday.
FBI spokesman Peter Donald confirmed the 70-year-old Silver was taken into custody around 8 a.m. at FBI headquarters in New York City, but he declined to discuss the charges. Silver was expected to make a court appearance later Thursday, and the U.S. attorney's office was expected to hold a news conference to discuss the case.
Silver's spokesman Michael Whyland declined to comment before the arrest.

FBI: NY Assembly speaker arrested, to appear in court later
Associated Press
New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who has been one of the most powerful men in Albany for more than two decades, was arrested Thursday.
FBI spokesman Peter Donald confirmed the 70-year-old Silver was taken into custody around 8 a.m. at FBI headquarters in New York City, but he declined to discuss the charges. Silver was expected to make a court appearance later Thursday, and the U.S. attorney's office was expected to hold a news conference to discuss the case.
Silver's spokesman Michael Whyland declined to comment before the arrest.
The arrest sent shock waves through New York’s Capitol as a new legislative session has begun, and it came just a day after Silver shared the stage with Gov. Andrew Cuomo during his State of the State address.
U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara took over the files of New York's Moreland anti-corruption commission after Cuomo closed it in April. He said in October that investigations into Albany's pay-to-play politics are continuing.
The commission and Bharara were looking into lawmakers’ earnings outside their state salaries. Silver’s outside income has long been a subject of discussion and controversy. Last year, he reported making up to $750,000 for legal work, mostly with the trial firm of Weitz & Luxenberg.
As speaker of the Democrat-controlled Assembly, Silver is one of the most influential people in New York state government. Along with the Senate majority leader and the governor, he plays a major role in creating state budgets, laws and policies in a system long-criticized in Albany as “three men in a room.”
Silver has gone toe-to-toe with five New York governors — from the late Mario Cuomo to his son Andrew Cuomo — since early 1994, when he was selected Assembly speaker to replace the ailing Saul Welprin. 
Silver was first elected to the Assembly in 1976, representing a district on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, where he was born and still lives with his wife, Rosa.
A graduate of Brooklyn Law School and a practicing attorney, Silver has championed liberal causes in the Legislature, where he has used his position as a powerbroker to support teachers, trial lawyers and civil service unions.
But he has also seen more than his share of corruption and scandal in his chamber. Several Assembly members have been hit in recent years with criminal charges ranging from taking bribes to using campaign funds for personal expenses.
In 2003, Silver’s then-counsel, Michael Boxley, was convicted of sexual misconduct. Nine years later, Silver handled a confidential settlement of $103,000 in public funds for two women who said they were sexually harassed by their boss, then-Assemblyman Vito Lopez of Brooklyn. After the details of the settlement went public, the Assembly speaker was criticized for his role. Silver later said the case should have been handled by the ethics committee.

‘Like a Horror Movie’: Rare frilled shark caught off Australia
FOX News
A rare frilled shark, whose species dates back 80 million years, was caught in a fishing trawler off Australia's coast.
"It's a freaky thing," Simon Boag, the chief executive officer at South East Trawl Fishing Association, told Australia's ABC Rural. "I don't think you would want to show it to little children before they went to bed."
The association said the frilled shark is often referred to as a "living fossil." It is described as having an eel-like body with three fins on its back. It gets its name from the six pairs of gill slits that give it a fringed appearance.
The shark, which reaches about 6 feet in length, has 300 needle-shaped teeth in 25 rows and it is believed to capture its prey by bending its body like a snake. This particular shark was nearly aslar... more »

‘Like a Horror Movie’: Rare frilled shark caught off Australia
FOX News
A rare frilled shark, whose species dates back 80 million years, was caught in a fishing trawler off Australia's coast.
"It's a freaky thing," Simon Boag, the chief executive officer at South East Trawl Fishing Association, told Australia's ABC Rural. "I don't think you would want to show it to little children before they went to bed."
The association said the frilled shark is often referred to as a "living fossil." It is described as having an eel-like body with three fins on its back. It gets its name from the six pairs of gill slits that give it a fringed appearance.
The shark, which reaches about 6 feet in length, has 300 needle-shaped teeth in 25 rows and it is believed to capture its prey by bending its body like a snake. This particular shark was nearly as large as they grow and caught at 2,296 feet below the surface, the association said.
"This guy was just unlucky," Boag said, since the shark was caught in shallower depths than it is usually found.
David Guillot, the captain of the Western Alliance Vessell, told radio station 3AW Drive that the shark was unlike any fish he's ever seen.
"I've been at sea for 30 years and I’ve never seen a shark that looks like that," he said. "It was like a large eel, probably 1.5 meters [5 feet] long, and the body was quite different to any other shark I'd ever seen."
