Bearman Cartoons73,859People Who Paid Attention to My July 1 Morning PostThis morning I posted a benign comment with no image wondering if people are engaged in G+ without images.  I said I would share a circle of anyone that commented and surprisingly many did.  OP: https://plus.google.com/103857459148999991693/posts/ThcDtFipGTDSO WHY SHOULD I CARE?You may ask.  I don't recommend ever blindly adding an entire group of people shared in a circle.  However, so many complain about the Ghost town of G+ where engagement is rare.  These are obviously people who are engaged in the platform.  So pick 5-10 and take a look at their profile.  If you like what you see, circle them and tell them I sent you.  If you don't, move on.What I learned- Circle shares aren't dead.  While many have been lost in communities there is still a place for specific, targeted Circle Shares on G+- Some of my commenters still think they are snarkier than me :)2014-07-01 23:04:169952454CC G+

Marie Axelsson9,706Hello and Thank you for the month of October!My month long project, with who interacts with me. Today the circle reached 500 people, but due to some bugs of G+ that I don't understand it doesn't say 500 anymore. However, here you all are. These are 500 people, who over the course of a month would have interacted with me. 500 people out of 9431 followers is a nice sum. :)Something I noticed is that some of the people weren't actually following me, but likely interacted due to someone else sharing their +1 activites on G+, which is a neat effect. Next month I will make another type of circle, not 100% sure yet, and there might actually end up being two for two purposes. They will of course both be shared. :D Good luck and enjoy each other's company! ;) 2013-10-31 16:57:16498553100CC G+

6 point landing!
I am SO tired. but Mom had a great Birthday and we all had a good time.
She showed us some very interesting places in historic Winchester, and there was much more to see than we had time for.  We visited the Revolutionary War (George Washington's Office) and The Civil War (Stonewall Jackson's home), and walked down Picadilly Lane...

I have a grand journey to go on today- My Mom turns 77 today and K and I will be driving down to spend the day with her (and my sister, and father).  She wants to take K and I to some of her favorite Quilt shops, places to eat, and to see neat things.  It will be exhausting but awesome!
I hope to get some pictures of the quilts she is working on....
And I hope that some things are flowering in Dad's garden. 
Time to pull myself together and get moving.....
TGIF! What is your Friday?

This is a touch simplistic, but true-
Less time, exponentially increasing prior art pool, changing metrics for success, sea changes in legal precedent...... it is all stressful.  There is no easy solution, either.
thanks to +Bill McGarvey  for pointing out this post to me.

A Japanese TV show called Great Gear did a segment on Noro yarn!
Neat information about how it is made.

College:  Worth The Costs?

"Zoll: The Federal Reserve Bank of New York recently came out with some numbers looking at the return on investment for a college degree today and in years past. What it found was that, over the past decade, there has been a pretty consistent return rate of about 15% on having a college degree. This is basically the difference between wages for somebody with a college degree versus someone with only a high school degree once you factor in the cost of going to college. That 15% rate has been pretty consistent. It’s kind of a good news/bad news story, though, because part of the reason for this persistent gap--even considering the higher rate of inflation--is that wages for people without a college degree just have not been keeping pace. So, there is a hidden undercurrent that is explaining the persistence of what they call the college wagepr... more »

Ebola Spreading

"Yet the biggest hurdle in stopping the spread of Ebola seems to be overcoming denial and fear in communities that are deeply suspicious of the government, the health-care system, and international institutions. This includes remote areas, which are relatively untouched by the government or have only experienced it in the form of force and coercion."

when one wakes up sneezing, it is going to be an itchy day.  I've been feeling itchy all over for a few days, but today is crazy!  what is my arch enemy?  Nettles.  and they are EVERYWHERE. especially in the park we live next to.  I'm thinking of buying a flamethrower.

Today's allergy levels for SILVER SPRING, MD:
Thursday - 7.9/Medium-High
Today's predominant pollen:
Grass, Plantain and Nettle.
"Pollen is shed as puffs into the air, and superficially resembles fungal spores, for which they may be mistaken. All species appear to be wind-pollinated."

"Transposable elements (TEs) are DNA sequences that can "jump" around the genome that were originally dismissed as junk DNA. As more genome sequences have become accessible, researchers are finding that transposable elements play roles in genomic variation. Fungal researchers have found a correlation between symbiotic plant pathogens and the amount of transposable elements. To learn more about this association and whether or not it is useful in plant-fungal symbioses, a team including U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI) researchers applied short-read sequencing and compared the genomes of related asymbiotic and ectomycorrhizal fungi within the genus Amanita. The work was published ahead online June 12, 2014 in Genome Biology and Evolution.
Working with collaborators at Harvard University, the DOE JGI has already sequenced and assembled the genome of Amanita... more »

Is Engaging in Science Outreach Damaging to Scientists?

A few years ago, I started posting about science publicly on Google+. I did it in my spare time because as a scientist, it was obviously a topic I was interested in. I also found the public ignorance about science particularly depressing. This, coupled with a woeful misrepresentation of science on the part of many science journalists on popular media meant that even if the public cared enough to read about science, they would be ill-informed by sensationalised over-hyped articles. There was only one solution, as I saw it - the scientists themselves should engage directly with the public. This has always been my personal motto when it came to doing science outreach (http://goo.gl/Ts8oYf and http://goo.gl/W1XKHT). 

So it is with dismay that I read this 'joke' article on Genome Biology by Neil Hall... more »

Science of brain signals opens new era for advertising

Making no judgement but guessing it will become more prominent. 

Companies in the near future will be able to test public reaction to advertisements, music and films before they are released by monitoring the brain signals of a select group as they watch a trial.

If you wanted to purchase large quantities of stolen human brains, where would you go? eBay, or the local Dairy Queen? If you answered "either one," then you're obviously ready to... okay, I'm not sure exactly what you're now ready to do, except perhaps to understand the Great Indianapolis Brain Robbery, which was neatly wrapped up late last year with the help of a San Diego artist who called the police after becoming suspicious that the human brains he had just bought on eBay might be stolen. 

Wait, what?

All right, so, I made a thing that maybe will push me to make more thingses, and to document them better. This is +Pinkatron Pence's fault (and I will plop some dollars at her page as soon as pay day rolls around).

The desired end result here is to have enough documentation per project for someone to follow along with their own similar project, like a cross between a project diary and a tutorial.

Bonus: subversive "stamped" embroidery designs. Soon, Precious.

Tracking Ebola

I've been tracking online conversations relating illnesses and diseases on social media for the last year. Not from a morbid curiosity but from a seasonal trend/location spread perspective.

The online discussions have dramatically increased with today's news that a second US aid worker has been diagnosed with #Ebola. [CNN
http://ndx.io/1tU9gU5 ]

Where are the conversations happening?

23% on Google+
70% on Twitter
6% on Facebook
1% in Online News sources

To try and put things into perspective, we're tracking the following illnesses and diseases (the corresponding number by each are the number of posts / conversations indexed relating to each respectively (since the beginning of July):

Flu 7,233
Measles 1,399
Rubella 460
Mumps 434
HIV 17,181

A Tentacled Underwater Workhorse

"For years, roboticists have yearned to develop a flexible machine that can explore tight spaces, repair dangerous equipment and potentially even conform to the human body.

Now one of the first members of this new breed of robots is almost here. It has sinewy arms, a powerful grip and the ability to work underwater without coming up for air.

Yes, it is an octopus."

A moment's rest...
What can I say, it is Monday again! Work putters along, tossing ideas in the air to see what fall where. 
I've had to admit I'm feeling the tendrils of depression grabbing me again- I'm trying to work past that.  Boring, I suppose, but true.
It is a good thing I have so many snuggly critters here with me.
My momma turns 77 this Friday and I'm looking forward to spending the day with her!  gotta have an end of week goal!
how is your Monday treating you?
