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 04:45:2350401

And yet, The Americans has been slowly uncovering the true natures of its leads. Philip’s struggles and hesitations with Martha, Kimmy, Elizabeth, Paige, and everything else exploded in the season finale. He attends an EST seminar (without Stan, who had dragged him along before), that focused on sex. Earlier in the season, we saw a rare flashback to Philip’s KGB training, where he was forced to “make it real,” sexually and emotionally, with any situation he’s presented with (and they truly meant anything). The question for Philip now seems to be: who is he really? Does he still know? Or can he even find it again? Rhys conveys these struggles and ideas silently, yet clearly.

This has been Paige’s season more than anything, with the teenager growing in her faith, political convictions, and unease with and distrust of Philip and Elizabeth. She’d cottoned on to the fact something is different about them a while ago, as she snooped around their house and visited supposed relatives, all in search of something — anything — that felt genuine about her increasingly hard-to-pin-down parents. The truth came out in episode 10, “Stingers,” a revelation that even if somewhat expected felt huge for any TV show and certainly raised the stakes for The Americans. Philip and Elizabeth getting away with their lies is boring; them having to confront them along with Paige adds a level of tenseness and dread that didn’t seem possible in a show filled with disturbing actions and images.

The Star Tribune reported that the measure passed by GOP-controlled state House on Wednesday was packed with rollbacks to appease the hospitality industry.

If the bill is signed into law, it would create a two-tiered minimum wage that critics referred to as a “tip penalty.” Restaurant owners would be able to pay employees a lower wage if they made at least $4 an hour in tips.

Meanwhile, Van Over decided it would be a good time to drop a hit of acid, since all he had to do that day was pay the helicopter pilot at Boeing Field the hundred bucks he had brought along for this solemn purpose, and then hop into the chopper’s cockpit for the 20-miles-as-the-crow-flies flight back to Duvall.

Asked about the status of those hearings, McCain went to great lengths to ridicule Cruz for suggesting the two had discussed the issue. He joked that perhaps Cruz was bouncing messages off the “ozone layer.”
“Maybe it was through, you know, hand telegraph. Maybe sign language,” McCain said. “Ask him how he communicated with me because I’d be very interested. Because who knows what I’m missing.”

Opponents of North Carolina's maps raised very similar arguments—*take a look at the skinny, snake-like 12th District, which crams in a black majority running along a hundred-mile stretch of I-85 from Greensboro to Charlotte.* They now find themselves in the same place as their peers in Alabama: waiting to see how a lower court decides the second time around.

No, you can't suddenly decide to bring in a drug dog during a traffic stop.

The justices voted 6-3 in favor of a driver who was found to have methamphetamine in his car. Dennys Rodriguez was issued a warning for driving on the shoulder of a Nebraska highway and then made to wait less than 10 minutes for officers to walk a drug-sniffing dog around the car. The dog alerted and a search of the vehicle turned up the drugs.

But Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in her majority opinion that prolonging the traffic stop beyond the time needed to deal with the initial offense was improper, even if only for a few minutes.

Police may typically inspect a driver's license, ask for the registration and proof of insurance and check for outstanding warrants because they all are aimed at ensuring that vehicles are operated safely, Ginsburg said.

"A dog sniff, unlike those stock inquiries, lacks the same tie to roadway safety," she said.___No, you can't suddenly decide to bring in a drug dog during a traffic stop.

The Pulitzer Prize committee called Berehulak’s images “gripping” and “courageous.”

Berehulak, who covered the outbreak for the New York Times, was in Liberia and Sierra Leone for more than 14 weeks in 2014. “Most media outlets have people that stay here for around five to 10 days,” Berehulak told TIME last year. “Editors are extremely nervous — there’s a lot of pressure and a lot of restrictions.”

WHEN American troops find themselves fighting for their lives, there is no better sound than an A-10, a plane officially nicknamed the Thunderbolt II but known affectionately by the troops as the Warthog, firing its enormous 30-millimeter gun at the enemy. It might not be pretty, but the A-10 is our most capable close air-support aircraft, and its arrival on the battlefield signals survival for our troops and annihilation for our enemies.

Yet over the last two years, the Obama administration and the Air Force leadership have been working overtime to mothball our entire A-10 fleet, 13 years ahead of schedule. They claim that other, newer planes can do the same job, that it’s too slow and vulnerable and that it’s too expensive.

A great essay from Mann about the unexpected impact of her photos of her children. What's sad is how many of the comments to the NY Times article say exactly the same things the prudes said 20 years ago, while the European readers laugh at us.

“Hawaii is a postcard from the future,” said Adam Browning, executive director of Vote Solar, a policy and advocacy group based in California.

Other states and countries, including California, Arizona, Japan and Germany, are struggling to adapt to the growing popularity of making electricity at home, which puts new pressures on old infrastructure like circuits and power lines and cuts into electric company revenue.

As a result, many utilities are trying desperately to stem the rise of solar, either by reducing incentives, adding steep fees or effectively pushing home solar companies out of the market. In response, those solar companies are fighting back through regulators, lawmakers and the courts.

Other states and countries, including California, Arizona, Japan and Germany, are struggling to adapt to the growing popularity of making electricity at home, which puts new pressures on old infrastructure like circuits and power lines and cuts into electric company revenue.

As a result, many utilities are trying desperately to stem the rise of solar, either by reducing incentives, adding steep fees or effectively pushing home solar companies out of the market. In response, those solar companies are fighting back through regulators, lawmakers and the courts.

The shift in the electric business is no less profound than those that upended the telecommunications and cable industries in recent decades. It is already remaking the relationship between power companies and the public while raising questions about how to pay for maintaining and operating the nation’s grid.

I like the ability to mount Dropbox into my Files app, but I was disappointed to see that I can't share folders or files from that location. I had to open Dropbox in a web browser to get the option to share folders and files.

There's been several posts and tutorials about using Arc Welder to install and run Android apps on your Chromebook. I was particularly interested in Instagram, because it drives me nuts that you can only post photos from the app, not from the website. I can say Instagram seems to work dandy. BUT, when I first ran the app, and Arc Welder asked me the format (landscape or portrait), I THOUGHT I wanted to do landscape. For the Instagram app, landscape is pretty horrible. But it turns out that if you just go through the Arc Welder steps again to reinstall Instagram, Arc Welder will ask if you want to remove the app. Tell it yes, and then you get your app's setup screen again. This time I chose Portrait and Tablet,and that's a lot better.
EDIT: I discovered Tablet is too large and cuts off the menu buttons at the bottom of the app. I had to go to Portrait and Phone. You can't... more »

An ABC spokesperson confirms that Nathan Fillion has signed a new deal to continue on as the title character for Season 8, if the show is picked up for the 2015-16 TV season.
However, the status of co-lead Stana Katic, whose contract also is up this spring, remains a big question mark.

Since Fillion wasn’t exactly expected to walk away from the show, perhaps the bigger news is what’s going on backstage. Showrunner David Amann is stepping down from the top creative post on the series. This is the second Castle showrunner shakeup within the past year. Last June, Amann replaced series creator Andrew Marlowe as showrunner. There’s no word yet on who will replace Amann, but we’re hearing there’s a search underway for a new lead writer-producer (and that Marlowe is not expected to come back). Amann has suggested to fans that this season will end in a cliffhanger, but the biggest mystery might be who’s going to replace him.

Clinton supporters on Wall Street reacted with equanimity on Monday when asked about her vow to level the playing field for the middle class.

"She will address inequality. The mistake would be to just assume that that’s populist," said Lynn Forester de Rothschild, the CEO of the family investment company E.L. Rothschild and a Clinton supporter.

"If rich people are not worried about today's levels of income inequality, then they are stupid," she said.

Project Maelstrom uses the same distributed protocols behind its torrent clients to build a browser that can draw content from other users' browsers rather than a web server. It's a strategy that might be useful for websites like The Pirate Bay, which had its servers seized by Swedish police last year. In the event of a similar raid, the site would still be available via other users' browsers.
