Peter Bryant7,517Fill your stream with great photosAdd these guys if you enjoy seeing original, awesome, photos in your stream. I've been curating this list for a couple of years.  I typically cherry pick people here only after viewing their stream and seeing a consistent set of images I enjoy.  I mostly don't put people here that simply re-share photos.There are a few of the 'to be expected' photo big shots.  Plus a few great (yet unknown, uncommonly followed) photographers.+Shared Circles on G+ #sharedcircles #photographers  2013-07-23 02:10:15373839CC G+

Chad LaFarge9,931Top 50 Most Relevant, and Why You Don't Need All of ThemFor whatever reason (obvious for many, not-so-obvious for others), Google has determined that these are the most "relevant" people in my circles. Undoubtedly it factors in interactions and shared circl...istas (?!?).These are among the people from whom I look forward to hearing and seeing in my stream daily.Do yourself a favor and screen them in a new circle rather than adding them to a circle that already has your important engagers.I say this because I don't want you to be stuck with people from whom I like to hear in case you happen to learn that I have terrible taste in content. Add the circle independent of any other, and go look at the posts from its members. Remove those that don't post content that you find compelling.Do this with any shared circle you add.Your stream can only be as amazing as you allow it be through your efforts and exercising your judgement, not simply accepting someone else's shared circle blindly.I hope this is helpful.2012-04-19 04:45:2350501CC G+

Hollywood is increasingly in the business of making movies with disposable actors — performers who are almost interchangeable and easily replaced...If there’s one actor who has proved himself in-disposable, it’s Robert Downey Jr. The actor has made millions playing Iron Man and for the second year in a row, he tops FORBES’ list of the Top Earning Actors...Downey reigns as the highest paid man in Hollywood because at this point, it would be incredibly difficult for Marvel to continue making Iron Man and Avengers films without him. Marvel movies starring Downey have earned almost $4 billion at the global box office and millions more on home video, not to mention the millions the movies have generated in merchandise.

Studies have found that retailers are underprepared for such attacks. A joint study by the Ponemon Institute, an independent security research firm, and DB Networks, a database security firm, found that a majority of computer security experts in the United States believed that their organizations lacked the technology and tools to quickly detect database attacks. Only one-third of those experts said they did the kind of continuous monitoring needed to identify irregular activity in their databases, and an additional 22 percent admitted that they did not scan at all.

“Valor was everywhere that day, and the real heroes are the nine men who made the ultimate sacrifice so the rest of us could return home,” Mr. Pitts told reporters in the White House driveway, outside the West Wing, after the ceremony. “It is their names, not mine, that I want everyone to know.” Mr. Pitts then solemnly read the names one by one before quickly walking away.

Johnson repeatedly confirmed with the media relations folks at these agencies that it was OK for him to photograph the buildings — as it is for any member of the public — but word hadn't filtered down to the guys with guns.

Johnson writes: “After I took this photo of a public walkway in front of the (Department of Energy) building, four armed guards surrounded me and my bike. I was ordered off my bicycle and told to hand over my camera. ‘Where is your identification? Why are you taking photos of our building?’ an officer asked me. I explained my role as a reporter and asked what rules I had broken. ‘You are suspicious, and we are in a post-9/11 world,’ he said. The four officers surrounded me right here, directly in front of the building entrance.”

[Law professor Garrett Epps] noted that “parts of his major textbook, The Making of America, present a systematically racist view of the Civil War,” adding that a “long description of slavery in the book claims that the state [of slavery] was beneficial to African Americans and that Southern racism was caused by the ‘intrusion’ of northern abolitionists and advocates of equality for the freed slaves.”
In The Making of America, Skousen included an essay by Fred Albert Shannon, in which he argued that “if [black children] ran naked it was generally from choice, and when the white boys had to put on shoes and go away to school they were likely to envy the freedom of their colored playmates.”

Though Yankovic doesn’t always know whether the artists he’s parodying hear his versions, Graham Nash certainly did. Yankovic said in a recent Reddit AMA chat that when he ran into Nash last year in New York, Nash asked when Yankovic was going to record a parody of “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes.” Yankovic wrote, “I whipped out my iPhone and played ‘Mission Statement’ for him. Instant request! (He loved it, BTW.)”

Microsoft recently announced a push for low-cost Windows laptops in the $199 range. The initiative is directly aimed to counter the sales of Chromebooks, including sales to schools. Chromebooks are a perfect fit for many school systems given the low cost (typically around $200) per laptop. They can often be deployed using existing budgets, avoiding the long drawn-out process of solicitation for grants.

Vantablack is a new material from Surrey Nanosystems in the UK, and is comprised of millions of carbon nanotubes. As light hits it, the light particles get trapped in the densely packed, vertically aligned tubes. It absorbs 99.965% of incoming radiation. That means visible light, infrared, microwaves, and more.

A New York woman has sued the city, the police department and several individual officers over a 2013 arrest for recording police activity.

A lawsuit, filed in federal court Monday on behalf of Debra Goodman, claims her rights were violated due to a departmental "policy, practice and custom of interfering with the right of individuals to film, photograph, videotape, or record…NYPD members performing their official duties in public places.”

Goodman was arrested Sept. 25, 2013, for attempting to record officers from a sidewalk. The lawsuit states that an officer walked up to her while she was recording, and pulled out his own camera to record her. She was cuffed after a verbal exchange and telling the officer she’d done nothing wrong when he asked for her identification.

After several trips to court, Goodman’s charges were eventually dismissed May 27.

Even at 70, Winter was still performing around 200 concerts a year and admitted once that “guitar is the only thing I was ever really great at”. Winter, who died in Zurich, Switzerland, was due to release a new album entitled Step Back on September 2.

One concert that really stands out for me was seeing Johnny and Edgar together, touring as the Winter Brothers.

Steven Yeun: I remember a couple of scenes I would look over at what was going on in the scene and I would be like, ‘What the eff? What are we doing? How is this legal? It's grounded and real, too; it's not like torture or gore for no reason. It's literally, that is what would happen and we are trying to show it. It would not work on network television, let me tell you that.

The F-35 may be the world's most expensive, most advanced military jet programme, but it was a cheap and cheerful budget aircraft that managed the trans-Atlantic crossing to Farnborough.

The Scorpion costs about $20m (£12m) a throw, is built from off-the-shelf components, and went from drawing board to first flight in 23 months.

The F-35, costing three times as much and conceived in the early 1990s, is still in the US while engineers figure out what caused a fire that has grounded the entire fleet.

So what we have here is a man who got caught telling a flagrant falsehood, and when called out on it angrily defends himself by explaining he meant some actual Internet Conspiracy Theory, courtesy of The Fillings In His Teeth. Is that better? I don't know that that's better. But it looks like we should all be paying more attention to Kentucky State Senate hearings, especially if it doesn't look like the network fall lineups are going to be anything special.

The Rubicon is when you see the Master come out of looking like a pile of rags on the floor, get up, and in less than 10 seconds drain the blood out of an entire human being. In that moment, you understand that this vampire is not going to take you to dinner and romance you.

The ACLU of California, the ACLU, Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Asian Law Caucus, and the law firm Bingham McCutchen have filed a lawsuit challenging the federal government's Suspicious Activity Reporting program — a vast expansion of the federal government's domestic intelligence network. The SAR program supposedly facilitates the collection and sharing of information about activity that appears "suspicious," but in practice it targets First Amendment-protected activity, encourages racial and religious profiling, and violates federal law. The plaintiffs are five U.S. citizens whose information has been entered into counterterrorism databases for engaging in lawful conduct, and who have been subject to unwarranted law enforcement and scrutiny. The lawsuit was filed in July 2014 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

For example:

-Hotels are advised to be on the lookout for guests who "request specific room assignments or locations" or use "payphones for outgoing calls."
-Rental car companies are instructed that "providing multiple names" on rental paperwork is to be "considered suspicious."
-Hobby shops should be wary of customers with an "unusual interest" in remote-controlled aircraft and those who pay in cash.
-The general public is cautioned to report "unusual activity," including "people acting suspiciously" and "people in places where they do not belong."

86 year old James Prigoff took a moment to photograph a rather unusually colorful, rainbow painted natural gas storage tank in Boston about a decade ago. This was an action that would have federal agents turn up at his house months later to question him, and have his name added to a government database for suspicious activity. Very similar occurrences are affecting four other people, and now the group is suing the federal government over these reports and actions against them.
