Circle Google153DIAMOND TEAM ELITE ENGAGER CIRCLE 11.11.14This is my Diamond Team Elite Circle. Along with my Elite Inner Circle, these are the people who have helped me grow to where I am today. They have my gratitude, and to help them, and to help you grow your followers I am sharing them here. There is no automatic criteria to get into this circle. These are people who I have chosen and personally hand curated.To get to the next level and have a chance to become a Team Elite Engager, there are five simple steps:1. Make sure you have added me!2. +1 this post3. Publicly share this circle to public, your circles and extended circles. DO NOT DELETE THIS SHARE OR YOU WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM NEXT WEEK'S  OR POSSIBLY BLACKLISTED FROM  FOR GOOD4. Optionally, comment to let me know what you have done! (this is optional, because my circles often reach the maximum 500 comments).5. So I can easily find your share, always publicly share my original shared circle. You'll know if you're sharing the original one because you won't see "Jason Levy originally shared" above here. If you do see it, click on "originally shared" and it will bring you to this post.6.

Danial Hallock10,323No Name NeededIt's getting close to the Holiday Season, and the whole point of this particular part of the season is to "give thanks" to the people (or, in America, things) that have positively impacted your life.  For me, these are those people.You all should remember my initial circle The Three Hundred (http://goo.gl/kqE8h) which was well received at 251 +1s and 48 reshares.  This circle was my first round of hyper-vetting individuals for circling, based on a lot of criteria that was centered around high quality content and a high level of engagement.  I think I combed through about 2,300 profiles on a one-by-one basis before arriving at the final product.That circle then morphed into the The Collaborative Circle (http://goo.gl/Ex9ai) which was less publicized, but still racked in 90 +1s and 13 reshares.  This circle was based on the premise that "If four people from The Three Hundred enjoy person X, then I should also enjoy them."  Well, the combination of these circles lead to an interesting scenario in which I was able to locate all stars through a combination of overlap and relevance (via Google algorithms).  Out popped these twenty five individuals, and I could not be happier with the results.  These are twenty-five individuals in which I am subscribed, their posts are always enjoyable as well as insightful, and the notification stream keeps me engaged throughout the day.Whether you're looking at the tech news from +Mike Elgan, the social and scientific commentary of +Yonatan Zunger, or the general internet awesomeness that is the enigma of +Sarah Rios, you're not going to be disappointed.I normally only notify people that are contained within a circle, but these people are too awesome not to be guilty of a little plus-spam;  feel free to request a removal from the notified (all) circles.(Link to this post: http://goo.gl/AlsXG5) #nonameneeded   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #sharedcircle  2013-11-13 23:53:242639671

Paige Keaton54,103I shared this circle earlier and realized it was lacking a lot of women that I have circled. I went through my other circles and found about 300 more just glancing. I have added these women and would like to share it with you.  Be kind to the women I am sharing with you today. I don't share circles often but I hear a lot that G+ is mostly male. I have spent a lot of time finding good women. This is not a porn circle if that is what you are into. This is NOT a HOT WOMEN  circle.

Brittany Constable3,838You know, I haven't seen any NaNoWriMo shared circles going around yet.  Perhaps communities have made them a little redundant, but this is still one of my favorite things about the Plus, so I'm sharing away.The people in this circle have all either mentioned NaNoWriMo in posts or comments, or are in the NaNoWriMo 2013 community.  Please let me know if you:- are not in this circle and should be (this is the one time of year I'll circle anyone and everyone as long as they're doing NaNo)- are in the circle and shouldn't be- are doing NaNo, but would not like to be included in shared circlesA note about adding large circlesIn the past, I've added WriMos to both the NaNo circle and the general writers circle.  This has proven a mistake, since a lot of people who pipe up enthusiastically during November later disappear off G+, or just don't prove a good fit for my stream, and it leaves me spending a lot of time doing circle maintenance.So what I'm doing this year, and what I'd recommend others do as well, is add new people only to this circle (if they're not already in other circles) and keep the volume turned all the way down.  Then you can go to the separate stream and check people out, adding only the people you want to keep around to other circles. In a couple of months you can empty out the NaNo circle and clear out all the people who didn't make the cut.2013-10-23 17:06:17401404

MINIONS

I would apologize for anyone that is tired of seeing all the Ferguson updates coming from me (especially you few that have me on subscribe), but I am not sorry. The whole situation makes me rage. Misinformation makes me rage. Way too many people that I know in person, not just the internet, are dismissive of this whole thing, or cite blatant [disprovable] lies in defense of the officer.

All I can think is: what if that was your son? Imagine it. That guy shot your son dead. Would you still defend the officer's actions? Would you be happy with the Grand Jury's decision, and cease to speak about it? NO. NO YOU WOULD NOT.

Rios is ANGRY about this and ANGRY that other people are not angry.

ECONOMICS

Good read.

This article does an excellent job of explaining an important idea of economics. Say there's a shortage of something that people want, such as water. There are two basic ways to allocate it: using market mechanisms, by raising the price of the scarce good, or using control mechanisms, by saying "OK, everyone gets this much, and that's it." 

You often hear it said that "markets are efficient," and that's true: market mechanisms allocate resources far more efficiently than control mechanisms. (In control mechanisms, some people get more than they want, some people get less than they want, and nobody can trade, so pretty much everyone ends up unhappy.) However, there's another side to this, which is fairly obvious if you think about it: if you try to distribute water by raising its price, then the poor have to cut down on their usage, but the rich, for whom the change in price matters less, don't. 

The reason for this is what's called the "declining marginal utility of money" -- that is, if you have a million dollars, $100 is no big deal, but if you're living paycheck-to-paycheck, the same $100 means rather a lot. 

In particular, markets are very efficient at distributing dollars and water, using the principle that how much people are willing to spend on something is a good indicator of how much they want it -- but when the dollars themselves aren't distributed uniformly, they can be very bad at distributing happiness (or to be technical, what economists call "utility") and water. 

What this means in practice is that price-based distribution systems work well in highly equal societies, but increasingly poorly in unequal societies. What this means is that in an unequal society, you're stuck with two lousy options for distributing resources, pricing and control, neither of which efficiently distribute resources. Reducing that inequality increases the efficiency of markets. (Which, as any economist will tell you, ends up making everybody richer -- inefficiencies are resources which we simply lose to stupidity)___ECONOMICS

LINGUISTIC MINIONS

Interesting data is interesting.

This is a really interesting study on languages. It shows languages linked by bilingualism: specifically, by books translated between languages, multilingual tweeters, and multilingual Wikipedia editors. This measures "elite" bilingualism, of course -- among people who write and communicate -- but as the article points out, these are the same groups which are key to how information is transmitted around the world, and so this is actually a good way to understand which languages act as "hubs," both globally and between particular cultures.

You won't be surprised that English is the biggest hub language, but others are more surprising. Chinese is actually fairly low down on the list: while many people speak it, its speakers are far more disjoint from other languages. German, French, Spanish, Italian, and Russian are far larger hubs -- as, perhaps more interestingly, are Malay and Portuguese on Twitter. (Twitter, being a somewhat more "demotic" medium than books or Wikipedia, may be a better indication of mass-public bilingualism) 

There are plenty of other goodies in this, and the linked article tells you many of the goodies. If you want all the details, you can read the full paper at http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2014/12/11/1410931111.full.pdf .

ACTIVE UPDATE

So, for the last however many weeks, I've kept up doing 2 days of exercise per week. I'm supposed to be doing 3, but 2 is better than not doing them at all. I'll take it.

(There was even a week I didn't do any exercise at all, but I got irritated and said hell no I'm not stopping again.)

Today since I had time, and since it's one of Nedthing's days off, I tried starting a beginning runner's thing. It didn't seem too hard until right now when I'm sitting here internetting and my legs are letting me know I did something they're not used to. (I did stretch after, but still.)

Now I'm supremely tired. And I want ice cream.

Question for you all who do this exercise thing on a regular basis:

How do you holidays?

GENDER FLUID MINIONS

Custom gender labels, incoming! ::confetti::

via +Yonatan Zunger 

For many people, gender identity is more complex than just "male" or "female."  Starting today, I'm proud to announce that Google+ will support an infinite number of ways to express gender identity, by giving you the option to customize the way your gender is represented on your profile. 

Previously, we provided options for “Male,” “Female,” and “Other,” to encompass both those who don't fit into the traditional gender labels and those who don't want to declare their gender to the world at large. Now, the gender field on your profile will contain four entries, “Male,” “Female,” “Decline to state,” and “Custom.”  When “Custom” is selected, a freeform text field and a pronoun field will appear. You can still limit who can see your gender, just like you can now. We’ll be rolling this feature out for all users over the next few days.

Many thanks to the people and groups who gave us advice on the best ways to do this. Your input has been really valuable to us, and we hope you like the result!___GENDER FLUID MINIONS

Reading up on the articles about the call for reshoots in January for the new Avengers movie. Most articles are like hell yeah more action scenes woo! They're like hey Loki is called back in we get to see him in the movie even though we were already told he wasn't in it!

... but then one site [I think] correctly nails it: this is not reshoots for the bulk of the movie. THIS IS "RESHOOTS" FOR THE END CREDITS SCENE. Yes. With the Tom Hiddleston. WHICH MEANS IT'S TOTALLY SETTING UP AN END CREDITS SCENE TO TEASE THOR: RAGNAROK or you know start a war between Midgard and Asgard same thing BUT OH MY GOODNESS EVILNESS THERE WILL BE LOKI EITHER WAY.

Yes? Yes. YES.

Note: Cap seems to be the only one missing from this reshoot. I want explanations.

Just read.

A note before proceeding: This post is going to talk about some serious issues, and the linked article, even more so. This is a good one on which to stop and think carefully before replying, especially if it makes you angry. If it does -- and honestly, it should -- stop and ask yourself why it makes you angry, and how this shapes your perspective, before you comment. Because the heart of this post is not to advocate any policy, or to criticize anyone, or even to state a position: it's about listening to the stories of other people, and thinking about them. I'm not asking you to feel guilty, or justify yourself, or anything else: just to listen.


One of the most interesting things I've heard said in the wake of Ferguson (and unfortunately, I can't find the source to quote properly) was in response to the statement that "93% of blacks are killed by other blacks, so why are you so angry about Michael Brown and never talking about your own problem?" The response was that this is exactly like a foreigner saying, "99% of Americans are killed by other Americans, so why are you so angry about 9/11 and never talking about your own problem?"

I think that this response is quite profound, and it speaks to the fact that not all death is equivalent. And these deaths are inequivalent in an important fashion: ordinary murder happens for any number of reasons, and in almost all cases only creates a risk to the person actually murdered. (The few cases where there is a broader risk -- e.g., mass murders by someone opening fire in the street -- in fact likewise attract our attention quite broadly) But the death of a member of a community at the hands of a member of another community, especially when that other community has a history of violence against one's own community, represents a profound danger to all and sundry. And most importantly, if that death is not promptly censured by the other community, it's likely to be taken as approval of the action -- and other members of the second community are likely to remember this, and act with more freedom and violence.

I'm saying "community" and "other community" here, rather than "black" and "white," because this is true for more than one community. My own family history has been entirely shaped by this kind of violence, but the communities there were the Jews and the Christians; around the world, there are hundreds of other examples of this kind of dynamic as well. 

There is something important in common in every one of these cases. When you are a member of one of these communities, the threat of violence from a member of a different community is omnipresent and something that shapes every aspect of your life.

This is something that can be very hard to explain or understand if you haven't ever been on the receiving end of this. Being a member of a community which is considered a legitimate target for violence by another community shapes your entire life.

"What’d you do for your 16th birthday? Mine had me face down eating grass with a shotgun to my head."

In that context, I want to share this essay by +Ward A. The essay is angry; it's not an easy read. But it's worth reading because it's a snapshot of what it's like to grow up in a world shaped by this. I've chosen to share it not because its story is unusual, but because it isn't: if you talk to people who have grown up black in America, or in any other similar situation elsewhere, you hear this same story, over and over, with variations.

If you read my intro, or Ward's essay, you may be tempted to respond with "but that doesn't justify [X]!," or "So obviously, what they need to do is [Y]." That's not the point of this share. It's not meant to justify, it's not meant to advocate for any policy.

The reason I'm posting this is that, if you want to understand what life is like in the United States, and if you want to understand why Ferguson happened, you need to understand what the world looks like from this perspective. And if you want to learn what the world is like for other people, the single best thing you can do is to just listen to what they have to say, and acknowledge it, and file it in your mind. 

Nothing more is expected of you here: just to think.___POLITICS

I would apologize for anyone that is tired of seeing all the Ferguson updates coming from me (especially you few that have me on subscribe), but I am not sorry. The whole situation makes me rage. Misinformation makes me rage. Way too many people that I know in person, not just the internet, are dismissive of this whole thing, or cite blatant [disprovable] lies in defense of the officer.

All I can think is: what if that was your son? Imagine it. That guy shot your son dead. Would you still defend the officer's actions? Would you be happy with the Grand Jury's decision, and cease to speak about it? NO. NO YOU WOULD NOT.

Rios is ANGRY about this and ANGRY that other people are not angry.

This is outrageous. It's extremely telling that they armed themselves to the teeth against protesters before the announcement was even made, like they knew what the outcome would be before the grand jury even heard the case.

But haha no corruption, right? Totally unbiased grand jury.

--_--

Some explanatory context about the lack of an indictment in Ferguson: while grand juries are nominally one of the checks on executive power, with the prosecutors only able to indict someone if they can convince a grand jury, this hasn't really been the case in decades, if ever. In the famous words of Sol Wachtler, former chief judge of the New York Court of Appeals, district attornies have so much influence over grand juries that they could get them to "indict a ham sandwich" if they wanted.

This is because grand jury proceedings are rather one-sided: there is generally no judge involved, nor any defense, but rather the prosecutor simply presents whatever evidence he or she chooses, and has to convince the grand jury that there is "probable cause" that the person committed a crime, i.e. that a reasonable (ordinary) jury could conceivably convict. If this seems like a rather low bar to you, you're right: quite a few people have argued that grand juries are a complete waste of time, and only half of US states still use them. (The federal government is required to by the fifth amendment; no common-law jurisdiction outside the US still bothers)

In those places which still use them, their main remaining function is to provide plausible deniability to prosecutors who don't wish to pursue a case: just like you could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich by only showing one story, you could get a grand jury to refuse to indict Freddy Krueger by showing them enough evidence to make the legitimacy of the state's case unclear.

That's not a common use for grand juries -- prosecutors generally have better things to do with their time than look for plausible deniability. (In the federal courts in 2010, for example, grand juries refused to indict 11 times, out of about 162,000 cases. Given that a prosecutor can generally guess when they don't even have a good enough case to indict, you can assume that those eleven each decided to have the grand jury be the one to say no, instead of them, for a reason)

What this means is that when you're trying to interpret the news and understand what a grand jury verdict means, you can basically take it to be a summary of the prosecutor's decision to prosecute or not to prosecute the case, rather than the verdict of an independent panel. 

(The analysis below notes that, in high-profile cases, there's another important reason that a grand jury may not indict, which is that the prosecutor feels that the case isn't strong enough to actually push through, but nonetheless feels political pressure to try anyway. That's not likely to be the case with today's news, as county prosecutor Bob McCulloch took the rather unusual step of having Darren Wilson, the prospective defendant, testify before the grand jury for several hours. Prosecutors who actually want an indictment generally don't invite the defendant to give their side of the story at length, as this is not considered conducive to getting the desired variety of ham sandwich. So it's fairly safe to read today's headline as "McCulloch decides not to prosecute Wilson," and interpret that as you will.)

I realize there is such a thing as reader's bias.

But this is also not the first time I've seen data/reports/research leaning in this direction.

Anyone willing to throw more hard data at me that points in the other direction?

I Made A Spreadsheet

I've heard a variety of people making claims about which political party is better for the economy. So I made a spreadsheet to see what I could find out. I went to the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Economic Analysis (http://www.bea.gov/national/index.htm#gdp) and got a list of year to year GDP change from 1930 to 2013. Then I went to the Tax Policy Center (http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxfacts/displayafact.cfm?Docid=543) to find the top tax rate for each year. Next I searched for a list of S&P 500 annual returns. (http://financeandinvestments.blogspot.com/2014/02/historical-annual-returns-for-s-500.html) Finally I went to Wikipedia to get the list of party control of Congress for each year. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Party_divisions_of_United_States_Congresses)

I spent a little time mashing all that together into a single spreadsheet and ended up with a nice, sortable list of each year's GDP change, S&P 500 change, top tax rate, and the party controlling the White House, Senate, and the House of Representatives. First thing I did was to sort the list by GDP change as a general proxy for The Economy. Essentially, the economy has done overwhelmingly better during Democratic administrations as compared to Republican administrations. As shown in the chart below, of the top 24 years since 1930 the government has been almost entirely under Democratic control.

Then I got to wondering whether perhaps the Republicans may not have benefited the GDP so much, but instead helped out the stock market returns. I mashed those numbers and the result was so jaw-dropping that I had to recheck my work several times. If you had $1,000 in 1930 and invested in the S&P500 only while there was a Democrat in the White House, keeping your money in the mattress during Republican administrations, at the end of 2013 you'd have had $344,307.20. If, on the other hand, you followed the exact opposite tactic and invested only while the president was a Republican, and stayed out of the market during Democratic presidencies, at the end of 2013 you'd have had $6,721.72.

For my next trick I'm going to do the analysis based on Congressional control just in case it turns out that the purse strings have a bigger effect on the stock market than the presidency, but based on the way the chart looks I don't know if that will make much difference. More to come!

EDIT: Oh, hey, I almost forgot. If you look at the tax rate column, you'll note that in the best 24 years of GDP growth the top tax rates are WAY higher than current. In fact, the lowest top tax rate on the list is 1984, when it was only 50%. I'm not sure I believe the rhetoric that lowering tax rates helps the economy.___POLITICS

I dunno about you all but I always roll my eyes at technophobic blame games.

When people start talking about how technology is cutting us off from appreciating the world or worthwhile interactions with other human beings they are making one fundamental mistake.

We never actually did that in the first place.

What we actually did was looked at scenery and said "that's pretty" or had incredibly tedious conversations about the weather with people we didn't like very much but were obliged to socialize with.___PSA
