Brian Buckley55,635Sharing My Aug 16 Engagers Showcase CircleHappy Saturday. Here is my latest circle of engaging plussers. I am giving away a special prize with this share. Make sure you read the entire post to see how to qualify for the giveaway! There is a very special person who I follow that doesn't like to be included in a mass circle share. This is because she doesn't think her taste is everyone else's cup of tea. She's  +Pam Adger and she is wicked awesome.  I'm recommending that you add her, but she is not in the circle. You'll have to follow her tag to her profile and add her manually . If her tastes aren't for you, then don't add her.READ ON - GIVEAWAY INFORMATION TO COMEThe Engagers Showcase part means that I would love for you to share a link to one of your own recent posts in the comment stream here. That is a unique feature of this type of circle and it's a lot of fun. It also gives everyone a chance to learn a little bit about why I like to have you in my circles, and if they would like to add you to your circles. You'll need to use a public post or Google plus won't give you a link to it. There are lots of new people in this circle. This is your chance to make some great new connections.It's also your chance to win one of our coveted "Blue Footed Boobies" tee shirts. Everyone in this circle (plus Pam) who shares a link to a post will be added into a new circle. We will give one member of that new circle a tee shirt as pictured in this post: http://goo.gl/2MJGE4If you don't have a public post of your own that you would like to share you can include a link to someone else's awesome post that you like.SHARING COMMENTING PLUSSINGAll the above are welcome and appreciated, but please do any of the above for your own reasons. You are in this circle already because of our interactions or because I admire what you do online and I want to recommend you to others. This is not a snowball circle. You don't get in or out by the same criteria as most circles.Thanks again everyone. Enjoy and thank you for your engagement Good luck with the giveaway :) #circleshare   #engagersshowcasecircle   #engagerscircle  2014-08-16 16:24:3236322068144CC G+

Marco Favero6,459his is my Sparkle Team Elite Engager CircleAs it has been some time since I posted a #teamelite circle, my   #teamelite circles have a fabulous theme this time, so they are named Sparkle and Glitter. You'll notice there are only two of them this time, as I am now making sure everyone has added me before I share them.* #teamelite  members - see nearer the end for instructions for the next stage!  #eliteinnercircle *I have had so many great     #teamelite  engagers that I need two whole circles - why are they     #teamelite  engagers, as opposed to normal engagers? These are the ones who have shared my shared circles - you have close to 1,400 circle sharers here for you to add across these three circles. You should add people in these circles, because they are active engagers and will brighten up your Google Plus experience. I'm not sure you could handle all that Google Plus engagement, so think twice before you do so!My     #teamelite  circles are extensively shared by the top circle sharers on Google Plus, so naturally, membership of     #teamelite  is very exclusive and there is a lot of demand to get in.To get in, and to ensure you stay in     #teamelite  you need to do the following:1. Add me to your circles, if you haven't done so already2. +1 this circle3. Publicly share this circle to public, your circles and extended circles.4. If possible, leave a comment on this circle so I know you have done the three steps above (I say "if possible" as my circle comments more often than not hit the 500 comment limit).BE THE BEST OF THE BEST:To get into my  #eliteinnercircle  you need to share my Sparkle and Glitter #teamelite  circles, as well as my current #eliteinnercircle circle.

Shawn Manaher2,351Introduction to Core Circle Hey All!  How are you?  Hope you are having an awesome day! If you are reading this, you were added to Core Circle over the last two weeks, through your engagement with me or through someone sharing a circle with you, called Core Circle.  Right now there are 350+ active members of Core Circle and you are one of them!!! This post is meant to be the “Introduction to Core Circle”, which you can use to share with your followers on why they should be part of Core Circle and serves as a reminder to all of us where things are headed.  While long, I tried to be as thorough and clear on the ideas of Core Circle, how things are or will be structured, why you should be active, how you can start, how you can help, etc. Again, it is a bit long, but I think you will like what you read, let’s get started… What is Core Circle?Core Circle is an actively managed, member-driven group that is designed to help form new circles by categorizing individuals based on interest, desires, and passions.  Maybe you like sports?  What about art?  How about dogs, music and books?  Well, that is why you are getting this message to help connect you with engaged, like-minded individuals with similar interests and to connect with other interesting people. Making sense? #corecircle  How Is Core Circle Setup?Currently Core Circle is a group of individuals, called members, that have started to engage with one another through group participation on our profiles and posts.  A lot of +1ing, sharing and comments have gone around so far and that is just the start of what has been happening. As Core Circle has grown smaller groups within Core Circle called Circles in Circles have formed to create stronger levels of engagement among the members.  While it has worked well so far by keeping those groups no larger than 125 each, going forward each Circles in Circles group will look different. Each Circles in Circles group will be made up of 15 individuals with one leader assigned to help encourage the circle’s growth through member participation. Leaders will be there to help you learn more about Google Plus and how you can become more active in Core Circle.  #circlesincircles   Now, once we have several strong and established Core Circles the next natural step will be for us to create a Core Circle Community.  This Core Circle Community will allow us to continue to grow on Google Plus until we max at 5,000 active members.  Once several Core Communities have been formed, well, we’ll just take over Google Plus! ;)It started already here is our community: https://plus.google.com/communities/105089031619104397599 - Join Today! As you can see, it would be very difficult for one person to manage all this and that is why we will/ have Core Circle Leaders to help Core Circle move forward.  More about how you can become a Core Circle Leader below. #corecircleleader   Why Should You Be Active?Simply put, Core Circle is a great way for you to engage with those of similar or varied interests and get to know them through short and simple ways of engagement, like +1ing, comments and shares.  It is also a place where you will gain more of your own followers to help build your own Core Circle.  Cool, eh?Updated Core Circle Introduction: This is an abbreviated2013-09-04 14:28:55368339162241CC G+

Shawn Manaher1,382Core Circle Grows - Circles In CirclesStill amazed, still shocked, still growing!  In the last 7 days Core Circle has gone from 0 to 250 active members and continues to gain momentum with multiple mentions, shares and ripples across Google Plus.  This seriously has the makings of something that is ready to explode!Now, you might be asking, what's next and where do we go from here?!? Great questions!As you now know Core Circle is about creating segmented circles of interest within a circle so that you have the opportunity to REALLY get to know those in the circle.  You become and stay active in Core Circle through simple engagement (+1, Sharing & Comments) and living out the 'Give Before You Get' mantra.But, what happens when things start to get big, what about keeping it manageable? Today, I want to introduce you to the next part of Core Circle. Circles In Circles.Circles In Circles creates the strongest way you can connect with other members in a meaningful way.  It simplifies the "oh my goodness there as so many members!!!" into a bite sized, "Wow, this is easy to get to know each other!" It also allows room for growth for the larger Core Circle as more Circles In Circles are formed.Now what does this mean for you?  Below you will see a list of individuals in 5 separate groups named Pandas, Penguins, Turtles, Squirrels and Whales. If you are part of Core Circle Panda, then I would ask that you follow, share and comment on your group's content first, before you go onto the next Circles In Circles group.  I know you are all highly active on google plus, so it might not take you long to go through one group, so feel free to engage on several!Naming Your Circles In CirclesI know that 'Core Circle Panda' is a seriously boring name, so when you see your circle name, please comment below what you might want to name it.  Talk about it within your group to come up with something fun, interesting and exciting.Wow, this post is getting long, almost done!Core Circle Member RequestAs a Core Circle Member all I ask is that you:+1 this postFollow other Core Circle members IN your Circles In Circles groupShare this Core Circle with your friends, family, and neighbors.INVITE new members to join your Circles In Circles group. Non-Core Circle Member RequestWhile you are not YET a member, you can become one by:+1 this postFollow Core Circle membersShare this Core Circle with your friends, family, and neighbors.ASK to join a Circles In Circles group.Core Circle Active Member ListThe Pandas (see comment below for list)The Penguins (see comment below for list)The Squirrels (see comment below for list)The Turtles (see comment below for list)The Whales (see comment below for list)Wrap UpI know this has been an epic post, but I hope that I conveyed well the message of Core Circle and Circles In Circles.  Remember, it's about giving back folks and it's not as hard as it seems!Thanks to all you for making this a great experience for everyone involved!!!Go Core Circle & welcome Circles In Circles groups! #corecircle   #circlesincircles ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Once you are done here, take a look at the previous posts that Core Circle made, which will give you more detail into 2013-08-26 11:29:443771354995CC G+

The tone of the article is a bit dramatic, you can always turn off your GPS if this sort of thing creeps you out too much.

The maps are here: https://maps.google.com/locationhistory/b/0

Google has an amazingly accurate account of everywhere I've been, by car and by bicycle and by foot, for each day. I can pick some day last month and see exactly where I traveled. While it could be used as a huge invasion of privacy, I kind of like having this info, as long as I always have the choice to switch it off. I spent a half hour reviewing everywhere I've been every day all summer when I first discovered the site above. Very cool, and very scary.___The tone of the article is a bit dramatic, you can always turn off your GPS if this sort of thing creeps you out too much.

Canadians, now is the time to put yourself on the waiting list for the rollout of Spotify Canada, which is happening now!  Spotify is a free streaming music service that's been available in the States for some time already, and it's pretty good I must say.  (There's a premium service if you want to get rid of the commercials but they don't bother me that much.)

(I am not a spokesman for Spotify, just a super-early adopter...I actually have a paid monthly subscription to Google Play Music, which I prefer.)

I just heard the news about Robin Williams' suicide, and it's a terrible shock. I knew he had suffered from a mood disorder as well as drug addictions in the past, but he always seemed so... Funny. Tears of a clown, when there's no one around. This is so sad.

Still stumbling along with my new quest to learn how to read, write and speak Chinese (Mandarin).  It certainly helps to have software like Skritter, which lets me work on learning how to write the characters properly.

Skritter also comes with a great iPad app, so I can lean back on the sofa and practise my vocabulary, tones, etc.___

Truth.

A Breakdown Of The 40 Minutes A Day The Average User Spends On Facebook [COMIC]

Did you know the average user spends 40 minutes per day on Facebook?

"While much of that time is spent trying to adjust your Facebook privacy settings and avoiding ads in your news feed, the rest of it is usually spent frolicking on Facebook. From stalking exes to searching for old friends to make sure you are enjoying more success in life than they are, this is how you spend your time on Facebook."

Slooowly learning Chinese.... it is difficult to have to learn the pronunciation and recognize the character at the same time.  I'll remember what the character stands for and then forget the pronunciation, or vice versa.... it's harder than learning a Western language.  But it's fun using the FluentU website (which is free at the lowest newbie levels) and I think I might set myself a goal to learn a certain number of Chinese characters in a period of time, say by the end of the year.  

Now I need to pry myself away from the computer and attend to some pressing household chores..... funny how what needs to be done always takes time from what you would prefer to do.

Wait, what? The Harper Government is suddenly against potential loopholes that could help millionaires?!?

Oh, no, they're just holding a grudge against Oxfam, because they're raging assholes. I'm sure if a Harper friendly charity was actually helping the rich, that would be hunkey dorey.

"In a tiny fishing community called Cardigan in the eastern part of Prince Edward Island, stands a library that measures just 3.5 x 3.5 meters, making it the smallest library in all of Canada.

The tiny book repository is owned by John A. MacDonald, who manages the library with a little help from his 12-year-old daughter, Alexandrea. The building has about 1,800 books and a lifetime membership costs just $5, and even better, the return policy for the books is based on the honor system."

I have noticed more and more Chinese in the signs in my neighbourhood (I live in the neighbourhood immediately south of the University of Manitoba, which gets a lot of Chinese students).  I always wanted to learn how to speak and read Chinese, but I haven't spent too much time learning (or I've been doing a pretty half-assed job of it!).  I really like the DuoLingo method for learning languages (and I have spent quite a bit of time there brushing up my German).  So I went looking for something like DuoLingo to learn Chinese, and I think I found it!

It's a website called FluentU which uses short videos (less than two minutes in most cases) to learn Chinese vocabulary.  The videos come with exercises and drills to learn the pronunciation of the words as well as the Pinyin and the (simplified) Chinese characters.  (You can learn the traditional Chinese characters too but I thought Iwoul... more »

I'm a fine one to preach "go with the flow", when changes are smacking me upside the head, one after the other. It's demoralizing when you find you're not as adaptable as you think you are.
