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+

So much for giving Rand Paul credit yesterday for a good idea.
In March of this year, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) wrote in USA Today:
"...Militarizing America’s main streets won’t make us any safer, just more fearful and more reticent. Before another small town’s police force gets a $700,000 gift from the Defense Department that it can’t maintain or manage, it behooves us to press pause on Pentagon’s 1033 program and revisit the merits of a militarized America. And do it now before Kankakee looks like Kabul or Boise looks like Baghdad."

Belk is involved with the NAACP, filmmaking and is a businessman in the Los Angeles area who was in Beverly Hills for pre-Emmy awards activities when a couple of Beverly Hills cops decided he was the guy who robbed a bank nearby.

Within an evening, I was wrongly arrested, locked up, denied a phone call, denied explanation of charges against me, denied ever being read my rights, denied being able to speak to my lawyer for a lengthy time, and denied being told that my car had been impounded…..All because I was mis-indentified as the wrong “tall, bald head, black male,” ... "fitting the description."

How stupid can people be? It's one thing to teach a child to use a single shot weapon, far different to use something like this.

Austin Beerworks is now selling 99-packs of its Peacemaker Anytime Ale for a scant $99.99.

You read that right. The case holds 99 12-ounce cans, or 1,188 ounces of beer — equivalent to a wall keg, which is more than a pony keg but less than import kegs or full kegs, according to Wikipedia. The brewery operates out of a nondescript warehouse in an industrial park off of West Anderson Lane, have been so far unsuccessful.

According to a startled Florida Highway Patrol trooper, Barnes was shaving her bikini area while driving south on the famed Overseas Highway when she crashed into the rear of an SUV March 2...It gets weirder. In order to pay full attention to her sensitive regions, police say Barnes enlisted her ex-husband, Charles Judy, who was riding shotgun, to hold the wheel. Yes, her ex-husband.

I get that the Beverly Hills Police Department didn’t know that I was a Consultant for the NAACP, a film and tv producer, a previous VP of Marketing for a wireless application company, VP of Integrated Promotions for a marketing agency, ran Community Affairs for the Atlanta Hawks, was the Deputy Director of Olympic Village Operations for the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, was a Test/Quality/Mfg Engineering Manager for IBM and was a Bond Trader on Wall street. Surely, folks that fit the description wouldn't qualify as any of those.

But the rush to arm America’s police departments made oversight difficult. Grant programs overlapped. Money often flowed to state governments first before arriving in local police departments, making it hard to track. In 2009, auditors cited examples of state governments that could not verify what equipment local authorities had bought.

The federal government also did not typically insist that local authorities be trained on how and when to use its new equipment. In recent days, retired military officers have bristled at the sight of police officers in Missouri walking the streets with guns drawn, pointed at protesters.

“In the infantry, we teach ‘muzzle awareness,’ ” said Paul D. Eaton, a retired general who previously served as the Army’s chief of infantry at Fort Benning, Ga. “Their fingers are off the trigger. They are on the trigger guard. The barrel is either straight down or no higher than a 45-degree angle. The effort is to declare a presence, but not to declare you are on the offensive.”

Prosperity is about jobs and economic growth.  Tellingly, while Ryan’s budget plan package includes 7 summary tables and 12 graphs, none of them mentions either jobs or economic growth.  Instead, they focus remorselessly on spending, deficits, and debt.

A company will gladly add debt, if the assets that it can acquire with the capital raised are worth significantly more than the debt incurred.  No successful, growing company focuses on paying off its debt.___Prosperity is about jobs and economic growth.  Tellingly, while Ryan’s budget plan package includes 7 summary tables and 12 graphs, none of them mentions either jobs or economic growth.  Instead, they focus remorselessly on spending, deficits, and debt.

Some days ago, our 22 month old son, Jack, grabbed my (fortunately cooled) cafe' mocha, which contained FOUR shots of espresso, off the table and sucked it down...

You will be pleased to know that with extensive therapy and the appropriate psychiatric medications, his mother and I will, most likely, be able to recover to the point that we will be able to lead useful and productive lives.

However, on CNN Thursday, Don Lemon reported that Wilson did not suffer a fractured or broken eye socket and was rather treated at the hospital for swelling around his face and eyes. Noting that that specific injury has not been reported by CNN, “but is making its way around other media organization,” Lemon cited a “source close to the investigation” who told CNN that Wilson’s x-rays came back negative for a fractured eye socket.

Can good design help heal the sick?

The University Medical Center of Princeton realized several years ago that it had outgrown its old home and needed a new one. So the management decided to design a mock patient room...Equipment was installed, possible situations rehearsed. Then real patients were moved in from the surgical unit — hip and knee replacements, mostly — to compare old and new rooms. After months of testing, patients in the model room rated food and nursing care higher than patients in the old rooms did, although the meals and care were the same.

But the real eye-opener was this: Patients also asked for 30 percent less pain medication.

LOL, this is news?
What is your partner really doing while sexting? As reported by LiveScience, according to a new study, nearly half of people lie about what they are doing or wearing while sexting. This likely comes as a shock to all those who assumed their sexual partners are lying around all day in lacy lingerie, awaiting the always tantalizing “U up?” text.

This likely comes as a shock to all those who assumed their sexual partners are lying around all day in lacy lingerie, awaiting the always tantalizing “U up?” text.___

Watch carefully. He is on the ground by the seventh shot, the last two go into him after he's already down

Earlier this afternoon the Huffington Post identified 25 year old Kajiemi Powell as the man who was killed by St. Louis police  on August 19, 2014. Video footage of the shooting has just been uploaded to youtube by kwmu.

At about 1:40 the cops unload 7 rounds, brief pause, then two more

Witnesses can be heard saying
“They just killed him.”
“They shot him”
“That man is dead”
“They’re at it again.:
“He’s dead and they’re cuffing him?”
“They could have tazed him”

Most importantly, at least two witnesses can be heard saying: “He didn’t have a gun.”___Watch carefully. He is on the ground by the seventh shot, the last two go into him after he's already down

The sampling of color photographs below is far from action-packed; the autochrome technology that a handful of pioneering photographers used to capture scenes of soldiers, weapons, vehicles, and rubble required long exposure times and could not effectively record movement on the front lines.

A team led by computer scientist J. Alex Halderman recently conducted a study on the security of traffic lights in an unnamed Michigan town and found them to be ridiculously easy to hack. Three major weaknesses—unencrypted wireless connections, the use of default usernames and passwords, and vulnerable dubugging ports—meant that the researchers were able to take control over the lights with a normal laptop. As long as the wireless card in the hacker's computer can communicate at the same frequency that the traffic lights use, it can break into the wireless network that powers the entire system.

I know what it's like to walk around in a Kevlar helmet, gas mask, shield, and baton dressed in riot control gear.

When I first hit the street a veteran officer asked me “Rook, what's the most effective piece of equipment that you have?”...He just smiled and said “naw rook, your best weapon is your mouth piece”.  He was right.  The way you talk to people.  The way you deal with them.  Officer presence.  Being able to command respect and exude authority without having to constantly use force. That is what is most important.  I'm not saying an officer needs to be all smiles and never use force, that's ridiculous. But being a professional means being firm and prudent.

Being able to manage yourself and a violent situation effectively without losing control, that's what makes you a professional.

John Oliver is, of course, brilliant. but also brilliant is the prologue written by +John Lieske  Read it, then watch the video.

You know the scene from movies/TV:
 
The central character experiences a great loss (often the death of a family member or loved one), and in a bout of anger and grief trashes their living room/office/whatever as a writer’s way of showing the viewer how the character is hurting.
 
I was 17 when the police who beat Rodney King nearly to death were acquitted. If you have to Google who King was, or the circumstances that brought him into public consciousness, then you really have to understand that just reading online data is nowhere close to having perspective on the events. The views on what happened weren’t unanimous, but the vast majority of the country was surprised and horrified.
 
Well, the majority were horrified. Most of the people of darker complexions were hardly  surprised.
 
The riots that followed the police acquittal centered in Los Angeles, but rioting occurred all over. Where I lived in NJ there was rioting, though it amounted to some broken storefront windows on the main strip and authorities mostly staying out of people’s way unless they required help for a night or two. Friends I’d known for years told me with angry tears that I needed to just hang with them or stay at home for the weekend (and most suggested the latter). The frustration and hopelessness and anger that so many people were feeling manifested itself in rioting, and even though only a small fraction of people were the ones actually rioting the intensity of the riots were felt nearly everywhere.
 
That’s not a justification, just a description. After the country saw the injustice of law enforcement brutality without accountability, most people understood the anger. The outrage. That’s not the same as agreeing with violence for violence, but that was the first time in 25 years that the country as a whole got a taste of the injustice that was unsurprising to a quarter of the US population. It was the first reminder in two decades that the playing field isn’t level. In addition, it was a reminder of the glaring lack of accountability for authorities, something that had already eroded a great deal in the early 1970’s. Even the federal Department of Justice only managed to convict two of the four officers over the year following the riots.
 
The killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson are an echo of those events. Similar, not quite as loud in the public consciousness, but the undertones are the same and bring up the same realities of injustice and lack of accountability. Just like back then, reporting and public debate has tried to equivocate the completely unjustified killing with the violence in property damage as a response, completely ignoring that the response wouldn’t even exist without the police action that lacks accountability. Again, this isn’t justifying the response, it’s pointing out the five stages of grief as a real thing that people need to stop conveniently forgetting about when it fits a (IMHO racist) narrative.
 
I’ve seen several reports about Ferguson talking about how this isn’t about racism or racial profiling, that it’s instead about law enforcement militarization and overreach. I find it insane that we’re still at a place in this country where we still think there’s no overlap between the two. I don’t mean “insane” as hyperbole, I mean it’s a sign of a communal refusal to acknowledge reality in lieu of fantasy. It's both a case of law enforcement abuse as well as making snap judgments based on limited and horribly flawed criteria, in this case ethnicity and/or ethnic background (in short: racism). The constant doubling down on victim blaming by the Ferguson PD and the cryptic (and selective) public statements are a sure sign they’re unwilling to deal with the public honestly about what happened.
 
I don't mean to say that the police officer who shot Michael Brown was a card carrying KKK member, or that he might answer "yes" if someone were to ask him if he thought he was racist. It’s naive to even discuss racism like that; even most extremists have complex justifications built up in their minds about their ideology. Most racism since the 60's is so buried under weasel word language that it's practically as common as hearing someone admit that they think the country should only be one religion (usually not theirs) or should only be run by wealthy men (or wealthier ones than them)-- both things I'm sure anyone, regardless of your politics or social position, can admit exists in some circles. Both the right and left wings of the US political spectrum currently have rhetoric about moneyed interest who are against them in government, even if they don’t agree who or what those interests are.
 
I’m not interested in debating the ins and outs of how racism manifests today in the US, however. I’m pointing out the social phenomenon that serially refuses to acknowledge existing, which is more important than delving into the details of how it manifests in my opinion. Pointing this out is like pointing out the sky is blue to most minority individuals who might read this. The Washington Post ( http://goo.gl/MpF0F5 ) and USA today ( http://goo.gl/cTfHVj ) at least went to the trouble of getting some numbers together, and they’re startling: at least twice a week, for years, an average of two teenagers are killed by police. More often than not, the two things these teens have in common are that they’re from working class families and they’re minorities. The national discourse, however, still seems to be dominated by people for whom such realities are rarely ever a factor.
 
It would be hypocritical if I didn’t acknowledge that I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for a mixture of things like determination (which is mostly drawn from my iconoclastic upbringing), people willing to take a chance on me (which was pretty much a roll of the dice), and luck by way of being a hetero white male (as +John Scalzi calls it, the “Lowest Difficulty Setting”, TL;DR versions here http://goo.gl/KdRukr here http://goo.gl/3yS3pM and here http://goo.gl/2GmmDe with some follow up here http://goo.gl/ywf5BQ ). In all honesty, I wouldn’t call most of the people in my life who’ve given me chances that others might not have gotten outright racists, but it’s a little silly to ignore that systemic racism hasn’t played at least some role in my own life. Some might make the argument that 9/11/2001 has changed the degree of response from law enforcement to criminal behavior, but that’s hardly a justification.
 
There’s always going to be people who refuse to accept the reality of racism, though. That shouldn’t be the end of the conversation, in my opinion. We have data now that forcing accountability on law enforcement leads to more positive results ( http://goo.gl/JMWh3j , http://goo.gl/D6z9zm , http://goo.gl/n5EZUS ). It’s preliminary data, but so overwhelming in nature that applying it in larger populated areas is more than warranted. This takes the growing state of surveillance and places the view (appropriately) on areas where abuse and inequity can occur. An important step we can take as a country is requiring more all law enforcement agency employees to wear on-body cameras. Like I said, preliminary data shows positive results and no negative results. To address concerns from civil libertarians (like myself), I’d suggest these records be public facing. Put the public facing data on a delay if necessary (48 hours, tops, should suffice), .
 
So let’s start there: recording devices on police that record to video any interaction by police. This should not be editable directly by law enforcement and instead should be the purview of local or state legislatures as to the viewability and accessibility, with the expectation that any FOIA request will eventually yield the pertinent data. Deletions and omissions should be tracked and transparently recorded.
 
It’s not going to solve racism, but it addresses a symptom that needs addressing. For perspective, just before the shooting in Missouri a young man in Ohio was gunned down for holding a toy ( http://goo.gl/Ew30Mx ), and just after Mike Brown’s murder another young man was shot in California ( http://goo.gl/Ohz9BN ). Addressing this symptom not only puts some much needed accountability to protect our civil liberties, it can save real people’s lives. Demanding that the people in Ferguson stop suffering from their stages of grief is arrogant, narcissistic privilege.
 
Or we can start where John Oliver suggests.___John Oliver is, of course, brilliant. but also brilliant is the prologue written by +John Lieske  Read it, then watch the video.

The Star Wars that was released in 1977 no longer exists. The film has been edited, special effects shots have been swapped, colors have been changed and more...This is why rumors of a remastered, unaltered original trilogy are so thrilling...Lucas has long said this was impossible but, as I explored in an earlier story at Ars Technica, that’s untrue.
Besides, the holy grail exists today. It’s called the Despecialized Edition, and the only problem is that you can’t pay money for it. This is a gray-market release of the film, only available as a huge download on bittorrent. So what do you get for your 17GB of hard drive space?

What makes life-and-death EpiPens a poster child for Big Pharma greed is that the industry’s usual excuses for exorbitant pricing don’t apply. R&D costs? The delivery system was developed on the taxpayers’ dime by military/NASA engineer Sheldon Kaplan (who never got a penny in royalties) to inject atropine to counter battlefield nerve gas. Minor modifications suited it to epinephrine. Educational/marketing costs? Every doctor already knows about EpiPens. A limited customer base? With allergies on the rise and millions of EpiPens sold globally, economy of scale is built in, and a repeat market is guaranteed by quick expiration and dire need. EpiPen earned Mylan a tidy $640 million in 2012, The New York Times reported.

This is a good read, and please note that the company used as an example of gouging is Mylan, which wants to move out of the country to avoid paying US taxes on the money it gouges from taxpayers.

At issue was whether Perry was simply playing typical political hardball or whether he crossed a line by threatening a public official to take an action – resigning – by which he might benefit.

The grand jury was looking at potentially three state statutes: whether the longtime Republican governor tried to bribe a public official into stepping down; if he abused his position by misusing public funding “to obtain a benefit”; and whether he tried to coerce Lehmberg into taking “a specific performance of [her] official duty.”

Reedus' comments are vague but if we connect them with what Kirkman said, maybe Daryl's seeming lack of interest in romance has less to do with a sexual preference toward one gender or the other as it does to him being "uncomfortable with those feelings" for whatever the reason, and perhaps it's the same explanation that Kirkman thinks they might get around to revealing at some point.

So much for giving Rand Paul credit yesterday for a good idea.
In March of this year, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) wrote in USA Today:
"...Militarizing America’s main streets won’t make us any safer, just more fearful and more reticent. Before another small town’s police force gets a $700,000 gift from the Defense Department that it can’t maintain or manage, it behooves us to press pause on Pentagon’s 1033 program and revisit the merits of a militarized America. And do it now before Kankakee looks like Kabul or Boise looks like Baghdad."

Before another small town’s police force gets a $700,000 gift from the Defense Department that it can’t maintain or manage, it behooves us to press pause on Pentagon’s 1033 program and revisit the merits of a militarized America. And do it now before Kankakee looks like Kabul or Boise looks like Baghdad."
