Moe Tousignant6,237RPG Circle ShareI hadn't done these in some time but decided to start up in the new year. I've already shared my A and B circles and if you want to find those you will have to go back through my feed.What you have here is my C RPG Gamers circle. These are all G+ users who's name they have chosen to use start with the letter C. Everyone in this circle should have something to do with RPGs in some way. They may be a designer, a writer, an editor, an artist, a publisher, a fan, an edition warrior, a blogger, a podcaster, etc. If you do grab some of these people you should take the time to say hi! The best way I've found to do this is put them into a "New People" circle, send a message out to that new circle and then split the people up into whatever circle system you choose to use.2014-01-17 18:31:57301703

Moe Tousignant3,875RPG Circle ShareWhat you have here is my C-D circle that's getting close to bursting. I'm going to end up having to split this one in two soon so figured I would get it out there before that happens. These are all G+ users who's name they have chosen to use start with the letters C or D.Everyone in this circle should have something to do with RPGs in some way. They may be a designer, a writer, an editor, an artist, a publisher, a fan, an edition warrior, a blogger, a podcaster, etc. If you do grab some of these people you should take the time to say hi!

Vago Damitio8,775Mixed Creative Tech Social CircleCreative Circle 1 of 11I am so impressed and enthused looking at the MicroVictoryArmy Stream  that I'm going to do something radical. I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better! I'm about to delete you (unless you are in MVA - it's not personal - I still love you)2013-01-13 00:16:04150101

Craig Froehle4,629467 Plussers Well Worth FollowingSome curated recommendations to make your Tuesday a bit more interesting. I kept this circle largely free of celebrities, pages, and organizations, so these should (nearly) all be actual people. Enjoy!By the way, topic-wise, it's a bit of a potpourri, but with emphasis on technology, science, progressive politics, skepticism, and other fascinating things.Note that I don't always agree with everyone in this circle, so don't take this as an endorsement of their ideas...merely that they tend to be thoughtful when presenting them.2012-07-03 14:29:094671718

Moe „Gilvan Blight“ Tousignant1,725Sharing another circle as I've seen quite a few new gamers on here lately.This is a group of RPG gamers who's Google names start with C or D.

Matthew Trotter63Okay. I've been collecting shared #writer / #reader circles for the past week or so, and I thought I'd share our combined efforts. Of course, G+ only allows you to share 500 people at a time, so this isn't a complete list, but it's pretty substantial.I've had a blast talking to and getting to know all of you over this past week or so. I've laughed, learned, and loved—a lot. I hope this circle will provide you the same pleasure that it has provided me.And just because you don't see yourself doesn't mean you're not in my circle. Like I said, there's a 500 person sharing limit. Still, if there's any doubt, you can ask to be added. I'm more than happy to.Much writerly love and salud,MattP.S. Share this circle and share the love with all of these fantastic people. #writers #writing #writersgroup #sharedcircles #sharedpubliccircles #readers #readerscircle #books #ebooks #indieauthors2012-04-27 21:12:48500506

Armando Lioss9,370“Active Engagers Shared Circle” 2.0In this shared circle you will find some interesting people to add to your circles, all of these GPlussers currently are actively participating commenting on my posts or sharing them as well as other GPlussers’ posts, so you can be sure they are getting involved in the G+ community.If you do not wish to be included in my future shared circles, please let me know with a comment to this post. I will remove you from this and any future shared circle I create, but I will keep you in my G+ circles.Furthermore, with each version I try to include new active engagers that are looking to meet other GPlussers to interact with, but I understand the old users may not have as much interest to meet new users and won’t circle them back, so I will prefer including users that really want to interact with new users.For TIPS TO GET PEOPLE TO CIRCLE YOU you may want to check: https://plus.google.com/u/0/111635150542674847021/posts/Q6c3ikBhdT3Thank you for your help making Google Plus adventure and exhilarating one…#SharedCircle #CircleShare #ActiveUsers #Engagers #Commenters #TopCirclesP.S.

Gideon Rosenblatt8,047Big Technology CircleThis is a big, honking circle of people who are interested in or working on technology. It's a mix of people interested in different types of technologies, so it's not super fine-tuned.

Wilco Wings1,54203.01.01 Local NewsIf you're interested to be in this circle's next update, leave a comment. You can also suggest people for this circle.Well, let's try something new here...When you start at Google+, you get a couple of default circles, and when I think back, I had no clue what to do with it. I read a lot of tuts about circle management etc. Started over a few times (bad habit), but it didn’t really worked out for me.I tried to get a number of people interested in Google+ by demonstrating it on the screen. I noticed how confused they were.So I started over with my circle management again, now with a different approach. I took all my interests in my daily live, converted them into interest circles. When I demonstrate Google+ to people now, I don’t see those confused looks anymore, must done something right here.Most Google+ users keep there circle management for themselves (I noticed).

Many of my followers have these people in them already but go ahead and add this circle again as there are some new faces in there.About this circleI know, firsthand, the benefits and pitfalls of shared circles but I also know the benefits outweigh anything so I always encourage sharing of circles. I also encourage smaller circles of not much more than 100 or so because people are overwhelmed when adding too many at a time. With that said, I've hand selected a few of my followers who 1) consistently engage often with me or I engage with them2) provide good content (either serious or humorous)Obviously, because I like to keep my shared circles small, this can not possibly contain everyone that should be shared. They will be eventually :)Enjoy,- dan -2011-12-26 19:53:59101982325

I love how well this man handled this.  This is great positive exposure for Humanists.

To quote a bit of what he said: “This is a room in which there are many challenging debates, many moments of tension, of ideological division, of frustration. But this is also a room where, as my secular humanist tradition stresses, by the very fact of being human, we have much more in common than we have differences.”

My father, Tom Lovett, passed away this week. What he did for a living is not really that important, other than he worked very hard to provide for his family. What he did as a person IS important.

He was decent man who led a good life and was kind to all he knew and fiercely loyal to those he loved.

I was lucky to have his as a father and honored to call him my friend. This photo is how I choose to remember him.  In the sun, surrounded by his entire family, making us laugh.  

No one really dies as long as they are remembered. His life will echo on.

I find this talk at a Christian church in Mississippi refreshing. Although the title identifies him as an Atheist, in the video he identifies as a Secular Humanist and he makes some very sober, yet non-confrontational points about who he is and how he got there. It's long,  but worth the time.

I believe there are only two things we are guaranteed of.  One is the life that we have.  The other is the legacy we leave behind based on the choices we make.

Do we serve ourselves or others?
Do we end suffering or inflict it?
Do we bring hope to others or steal it away?

We will all pass on, but the choices we make live on like an echo in those we leave behind. I think this kid really got that in a big way. His song is beautiful, but his legacy is majestic and echoing.

Pearlstein raises some good questions about our approach to markets and government that question the wisdom of left and right beliefs.  The overall question though I think lines up nicely with the video shared by +Jennifer Hancock earlier today. Markets are neither good nor bad and we need to make ethical choices based on facts. Thoughts?

Like the author says, the sample size is WAY too small to draw conclusions. But he also points out, rightly I think, that there is far too little data concerning the use of religion in our criminal justice system. Could Humanists provide a credible alternative that is based on data and not belief?

I saw this yesterday by accident when I was looking for something else in Colorado. If you like skiing, this is a pretty cool way to get to know a mountain. 

You just stepped out of the gondola into a strong wind at the peak. It’s cold and you’re weighing whether to drop into that powdery black diamond chute you’ve always dreamt of...or sliding down the nearest blue for hot cider at the base. 

With 38 new run and lift maps for some of the most popular mountains across the US and Canada, Google Maps can be your “go to” mountain guide. Whether you’re shredding Lake Louise or Whistler Blackcomb Resorts (see below), Google Maps  can help you find your way down the mountain to your next adventure. See you on the slopes!

Curious how or if this will change anything. . 

Exit polls in Israel show Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party winning a narrow victory in Tuesday's parliamentary elections, after a surprisingly strong showing by centrists.
 
Data published as the polls closed showed Netanyahu's Likud-Beitenu slate winning 31 seats in the 120-member Knesset.  The centrist secular Yesh Atid held 19, followed by the Labor Party with 17 seats and the far-right religious nationalist Jewish Home with 12.

Do you think this result will change the way Israel deals with the Palestinians?___Curious how or if this will change anything. .

But its from an article in Wired that's actually quite good and suggests the existence of Lord Vader, um, dark forces that affect dark matter in space.

Closing the Laogai would be most welcome if true. Not only do those camps have a long history of brutality.  Curious why the official said this and more curious why it was taken down so quickly. I wonder if +Helen Lee has seen anything on this today. 

Chinese state media have quoted a senior official as saying Beijing has decided to scrap its decades-old system of detaining people in forced labor camps - a practice long criticized by rights groups. 
 
In a brief report Monday, television network CCTV's microblog quoted Politburo member Meng Jianzhu as saying China will stop using the "re-education through labor" system this year, after the nation's rubber-stamp parliament approves the decision.  It said Meng made the comment earlier in the day at a meeting of the political and legal department that he heads.
 
China's official Xinhua news agency re-published the CCTV report before it was removed from both the Xinhua and CCTV websites several hours later without explanation.  Chinese authorities often order the removal of Internet content that they fear could encourage dissent against the government. 

Xinhua later published a report saying the Chinese government is committed to "reforming" the labor camp system this year under the leadership of its new Communist Party chief Xi Jinping.  No other details were provided. ___Closing the Laogai would be most welcome if true.

The shootings in Connecticut have gotten me thinking about how Humanists can be most helpful.

I would love to hear your thoughts.

1. Those who have deep religious faith have a built in support network to help them get through this. I have no intention of knocking the beliefs of others at a time such as this. But Humanists could provide support and help to non-believers dealing with this tragedy, and others, just by letting them know we are here if they need us.

2. By being visible in a positive way, we can let others know that it is possible to deal with loss in a non-religious way. We can show those who are inclined to be skeptical that there are healthy ways of dealing with loss that is human centered, not supernaturally centered.

I am not sure what is the best way to get such a message out, but I do think it could be useful.

Thanks for the invite +Paul Vasquez.

I'll start by saying that the reason I'm attracted to humanism as opposed to simply Atheism is I believe the question of God or no God is the wrong question.  The question that drives me and shapes my philosophy is "Who is Responsible?" Who is responsible for our world, our future and our actions? The only logical answer is, "we are". We choose to build or destroy. We choose to act compassionately or with malice.  For better or worse, the world we leave to those who come after us is our responsibility.

From that I get a humanist philosophy that challenges me to reason and act based on compassion for others and the desire to make good use of this one short life I get.

Thought that might be a good place to start a discussion.

From that I get a humanist philosophy that challenges me to reason and act based on compassion for others and the desire to make good use of this one short life I get.

Thought that might be a good place to start a discussion. ___

So I'm switching to Andriod and am considering the Note 2 or the Razr Maxx HD.  Anyone have either of these phones yet and want to give me their impressions?

Sometimes a song just completely clicks.  This Willie Nelson cover of Pearl Jam's "Just Breathe" is very emotional for me. I now know what I want played at my memorial service.

On this day in 1863, Abraham Lincoln gave one of the most famous speeches in American history.  With his very short Gettysburg Address, Lincoln delivered a poetic summary of the U.S. civil war and its consequences. 

Surprisingly, Lincoln was not the featured speaker that day. Edward Everett, the featured speaker, talked for more than two hours before Lincoln stood to speak for just a few minutes. 

Lincoln did get one thing wrong in his speech, when he said the world would not long remember what was said that day. Nearly 150 years later, most American school children are taught about the famous Gettysburg Address.

How do you think the speech holds up for a modern reader? Does it hold meaning for those who are not Americans?

Lincoln did get one thing wrong in his speech, when he said the world would not long remember what was said that day. Nearly 150 years later, most American school children are taught about the famous Gettysburg Address.

How do you think the speech holds up for a modern reader? Does it hold meaning for those who are not Americans?

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."___

I laughed so hard at this article.  Best line: "You want me to pay 40 bucks for an old sack? OH BUT IT'S HUNGARIAN. They're known for their sacks!"

Well worth the read.

I live at the Jersey Shore. Did you see Brian Williams of NBC reporting from the hardest-hit area? That's where I live. The area has been devastated. Entire towns were destroyed. There are mile-long lines for gasoline at the few stations that have any. I'm hearing a lot of people in other parts of the country complaining that people shouldn't “politicize” this natural disaster, and I have one thing to say to them:

Shut up.

Just shut the hell up. There's an election next week, and this is politics. Now is exactly the right time to point out that we have one candidate who wants to eliminate or cut FEMA (it depends on which day you ask him), who thinks the states should handle this stuff themselves, who thinks disaster relief should be a for-profit enterprise. One candidate who said that it is “immoral” to borrow money to help disaster victims. One candidate whose idea of “small government” is to leave people to fend for themselves.

Mitt Romney staged a photo op pretending to collect canned goods to send to the victims of Hurricane Sandy. His staff spent a few grand at Walmart and handed out cans for people to be photographed handing back, and he got his picture taken picking up boxes of stuff. What a jackass.

Remember when Paul Ryan got his picture taken pretending to volunteer at a homeless shelter? At least the thing he was pretending to do would be good if other people actually did it. The Red Cross neither needs nor wants your canned goods. All that does is create a logistical problem to transport the items. They don't accept that kind of donation because it doesn't help.

More to the point, we don't need your canned goods. Canned goods? Really? Do you think we don't have grocery stores out here? We have more canned goods than we could ever possibly need. How clueless can you be and still be seen as a viable candidate for president?

What we need is power. We need the lines and transformers and substations fixed. We need a more resilient infrastructure. And we need gasoline, very badly – but fixing the power will take care of that, too.

Mitt Romney thinks the states should take care of all of this themselves. He thinks New York City should be pumping out its own subway tunnels. He thinks the president shouldn't have brought FEMA to New Jersey with him, or sent those Navy ships to land the helicopters on. He thinks the power companies whose services go out every time it rains need less regulation. He thinks the market should be left to deal with the cleanup. He compared it with his experience cleaning up a school football field after a celebration. And he thinks what we really need is some canned soup.

Heckuvajob Brownie – remember him, from Katrina? – said the president responded to Hurricane Sandy too quickly. That's the Republican philosophy in action. Need to rebuild your home? Borrow money from your parents!

Meanwhile, Romney ignores questions from reporters about his intentions for FEMA. His party insists that disaster relief funding requires offsets. And now they're attacking our Republican governor, Chris Christie, for doing his job and working with the president to help the people of his state, rather than adhering to the Republican religion. We're all very grateful that Gov. Christie doesn't adhere to that religion.

But Mitt Romney does, and Paul Ryan does, and the party in general does. No state has the resources to deal with this kind of thing, and privatizing it would be despicable. We live in a society; let's act like it. Let's elect people who act like it. Not people who stage photo ops pretending to do things that won't help anyway.

Meanwhile, if you want to help, we don't need your old clothes or your dusty cans of cream of mushroom soup. Text “redcross” to 90999 to make a $10 donation.___Well worth the read.

I really love this feature we produced. I'm glad we decided to do a feature not strictly on who people are voting for, but why

Really interesting look at how ordinary Americans are making up their minds on who to vote for this year.  Well worth the look!

This wind map of the U.S. is amazing to look at and a bit scary if you live in the path of Sandy. Well worth a look.

Binder reviews on Amazon have gone political and hysterical. 

 "...let me just point out one glaring omission: While this is a lovely, multi-purpose binder, IT DOES NOT COME WITH WOMEN."

Not as epic as "Three Wolves Howling" (http://www.amazon.com/The-Mountain-Three-Short-Sleeve/dp/B002HJ377A), but not bad for just two days.
