Daniel Mihai Popescu61,295This circle is called Survivors!  It is dedicated to all of you :)I waited to fill it a little more with some new faces :)I hope you are notified, if not, nothing changes.Just a "+1" is more than enough (and I speak here for the members) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  It is an homage to you, so there's no need to share it, there are no conditions. If I forgot any of you, please forgive me and tell me, instead of uncircle me without notice :)I never was in "follow me and I'll follow you back" game, not here, nor on Twitter, where people are more liberal :)I'm out of the sharing circles game, as most of you already have noticed, and it's up to anyone to do whatever he/she/it likes with that :) I thank to any of you who kept in their public shared circles the time I have been absent (there was a very motivated reason for it), and I'm absolutely passive about the people who took me out of their public circles, considering they have not an immediate benefit from that. Oh, and I'm very glad because some circle spammers have unfollowed me. I do not really deserve their company :)Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends!2014-10-18 18:08:10469383955

Dr. John Cassone12,100Dr. John's Selectgood content and engagementThese are people I follow, engage with, and suggest for my new followers who want quality people in their stream. This circle changes each time I share it based on how people are engaging and sharing content.This is not a megacircle.People are only added based on good content or my experience engaging with them.Best way to sort and manage your stream:1. add new circle2. follow it in your stream separately 3. engage with those that interest you (good content/interaction)4. cherry pick those you like and make your own circles5. let go of the rest (or put them in a circle that's dialed down on your stream)If you add too many people too often then you will not build meaningful connections which is the point here.Circle Management Basics:1. Circles control who you follow:►   I might feel like reading the news so I have a news channel circle. I don't build relationships with these pages but follow them and share content when interesting. This way I can completely control my stream based on my mood.2. Circles control who your share to: ►   Share to your interests: I like martial arts but most of my followers do not. By collecting a circle of others that like martial arts I can share specifically to those interested in this topic and not bore anyone.►  I have also collected an "inner circle" of g-peeps that I have gotten to know and share more person pics and info with.3. Control your stream flow:►   When you click on a specific circle in your stream you can adjust how much the posts from that circle appear in your "everything" stream. ►   Organize people based on flow: I have three main circles called 1, 2, and 3. I have the amount of flow dialed in priority (circle 1 is high, 2 is medium, and 3 is low). I move people between circles based on the progression of our relationship. ►   Notify circle: I have another circle with people that I don't want to miss a single post from. This circle is set to notify me whenever someone from it posts. This is a great way to focus on building a relationship with specific people.Happy Plussing :)2014-09-07 19:22:331921015

Dr. John Cassone11,938Dr. John's August Selectgood content and engagementThese are people I follow, engage with, and suggest for my new followers who want quality people in their stream. I've also included some of my new engagers.This is not a megacircle. People are only added based on good content or my experience engaging with them.Best way to sort and manage your stream:1. add new circle2. follow it in your stream separately 3. engage with those that interest you (good content/interaction)4. cherry pick those you like and make your own circles5. let go of the rest (or put them in a circle that's dialed down on your stream)If you add too many people too often then you will not build meaningful connections which is the point here.Circle Management Basics:1. Circles control who you follow:> I might feel like reading the news so I have a news channel circle. I don't build relationships with these pages but follow them and share content when interesting. This way I can completely control my stream based on my mood.2. Circles control who your share to: > Share to your interests: I like martial arts but most of my followers do not. By collecting a circle of others that like martial arts I can share specifically to those interested in this topic and not bore anyone.> I have also collected an "inner circle" of g-peeps that I have gotten to know and share more person pics and info with.3. Control your stream flow:> When you click on a specific circle in your stream you can adjust how much the posts from that circle appear in your "everything" stream. > Organize people based on flow: I have three main circles called 1, 2, and 3. I have the amount of flow dialed in priority (circle 1 is high, 2 is medium, and 3 is low). I move people between circles based on the progression of our relationship. > Notify circle: I have another circle with people that I don't want to miss a single post from. This circle is set to notify me whenever someone from it posts. This is a great way to focus on building a relationship with specific people.Happy Plussing :)2014-08-07 14:37:331779413

21C Roadmapping: Dialogue With Sagarmatha

Sagarmatha:
- I sense you brought a new group of people for me to resonate with?

John:
- Yes, yes we did.

Sagarmatha:
- I sense they are exploring, each one, finding out more about how they can best be of service?

John:
- Yes, yes they are. They are among the very best of us.

Sagarmatha:
- I sense you as a group (she didn't say "group" really, she had me see the "group as collective intelligence happening, enacting, unfolding") are having some challenges with timeflow, trustflow and happenflow?

John:
- Yes, we are facing a lot of spacetime constraints, time constraints, presence constraints...

Sagarmatha:
- Would you like to tell me more about this word "constraints"?

John:
- We are moving very quickly through our mortal coils, our loans from... more »

"Let the story begin" said Joachim.

"Perfect day…" said Dan, "…for a story to unfold."


Knowledge Expedition #6 - Day 2
Conversations that matter

                        
                                  ≥≤ SAGARMATHA ALMANAC ≥≤                             
                                        Vol. ∞, No. 9, Date n/a
                                         "All Kairos All the Time"


Weather was calm and clear this morning at Conversation Community Base Camp on Sensemaking Plateau, after a starry night. The largest group yet of travelers on a Knowledge Expedition started to get used to the camp, the thin air, and each other.

The dichotomy of 20th Century chronos and 21st Century kairos played itself out along the sensitive and yes, sometimes bleeding edge of the living story we are enacting on the mountain Sagarmatha.

Work, wage slavery, and family and medical responsibilities all worked to pull us back from the real humanity we are living in this fictional story. And that is the story of the 20th Century paradigm's grip on us in a nutshell. No time for being human. Prescient 20C music educator Howard Roberts said "There's always a good excuse for not playing the guitar."

There is always a good, realistic and responsible excuse for not being human.

At Base Camp we started to be human again though. We realized we could come back whenever we want to be together in kairos, where things really get done.


Sherpa +Henk Hadders  visited Base Camp with a contingent of Peer to Peer advocates from Thailand, so they could see how things are done on Sagarmatha. Not sure how he slipped into camp today. We did see a helicopter overhead earlier…

Charles caught up with us and is now in the story! Enacting it synchronously and asynchronously.

Mike is still a kind of liason in limbo, between Village and Mountain, with and without portfolio (Schrodinger's Portfolio), apparently due to quantum fluctuations between chronos and kairos.

And now, to a reckoning of the way things get done in kairos, for work and for fun -- in conversation:

_________________________________________________________________
"Hello. Lost in an emotional storm of a lost poem" said Zara.

"Very glad you are with us" said John.

Zara said "Going to launch. Leaving normal behind."

"quantum forceful storm… emoting in my head as a poem…" said Kristin

_________________________________________________________________
"Here's a tune" said Teodora.

"Ah Chet Baker"said Doug. "Voice smooth as yak butter, trumpet smooth as silk…"

"Gorgeous, Teodora" said Dan.

"Jazz is a hidden mind traveling machine" said Teodora.

_________________________________________________________________
"A community is blessed by the 'weak' because there is strength in humility" said Kristin.

"Let's do this thing! Yeehaw!" said Kristin.

_________________________________________________________________
"Are we going to have to push?" said Hans.

"No pushing. Patient travel " said Zara.

"Thank goodness the bus came back for stragglers" said Charles.

_________________________________________________________________
"Keep your eyes peeled for yetis" said David.

"Yes, will do" said Heidi.

_________________________________________________________________
"Wind and more wind" said Zara.

Charles felt the sting of cold wind on his face.

"Fell behind you guys" said Ron.

_________________________________________________________________
"Welcome to Base Camp" said Joachim.

"Ahh" said Ron.

"top o' the world to ya all" said Hans.

"So right Hans" said Becky.

"You could say we're at the bottom of the top!" said Hans.

"We're the top of the heap" said John.

_________________________________________________________________
"I'm here" said Heidi.

"Yes you are" said Doug.

"Everywhere you go, there you are" said Joe.

"True, I gave up running away from myself quite some time ago, quite a futile practice" said Heidi.

_________________________________________________________________
"The mechanics of identity formation revolves around "not that". I'm not that. That's not me. Better to presume danger. At a neuro level" said Joe.

_________________________________________________________________
"Time for the nap" said Zara. "That whistle upset my feline companion, the ever-demanding Zorzi, king of all he surveys."

"An honor to be in your presence Zorzi" said Ron.

"Zorzi is purring" said Zara.

_________________________________________________________________
"Wow, what a journey" said Dan. "Glad I was able to meet up here! Chronos issues…"

"I hope things are ok, welcome to the camp!" said Heidi.

"Things are fine -- this is a little off with my workday…"

"Ah, yes that work stuff does get in the way of things, family obligations is the second chunk…"

"Agreed. Doing the best I can to participate fully here."

                                                         . . . . .

"Can feel the mountain out there…" said Dan. "I'm enjoying how strange and wonderful the landscape is. I could listen to the silence a long time."

"Me too, so much noise in the village" said Heidi.

"Yes, the village is wonderful, but it's nice to feel the peace…"

"Yes."

John said "The Village is wonderful, the Mountain is wonderful -- and the climb is murder for my poor knees."

_________________________________________________________________
"Where did David go?" said Kristin.

"Possible he went to sack out" said Becky."

"He did say he was going to walk about" said Ron.

"Okay… well, if he doesn't show soon I may go rogue and go in search of him" said Kristin.

"David is probably out looking for a Yeti" said Heidi.

"Does David have a history of shape shifting?" said Dan.

"I think he does kind of"said Ron.

"He DOES!!!" said Kristin.

"Well, then, there you have it" said Dan. "David may be looking for a yeti… or becoming one."

"Ok, I'm going to go catch me a Yeti!!"

"Sounds good, but be careful. I've heard they are wiley."

"Ah yes -- thank you for the caution. I'm wiley, too. #NotAfraidOfNoYeti"

"Weather is sunny, low 60's down in Katmandu. Beautiful day for getting squared away" said Doug.

"The sun must be about to rise???" said Hans.

"Morning Joachim" said Doug.

"Good morning!" Said Joachim.

"Beautiful day for first morning on the Mountain."

"There it is… the Sun" said Hans. "Looks like it's shaping up to be a beauty of a day."

"Good morning David" said Joe.

"Hey Joe -- grabbed a cuppa from the tent, but enjoying it out here. Much more peaceful" said David.

"Beautiful indeed" said Dan. "The air is raw. Reminds me of Colin Thubron's To a Mountain in Tibet. He begins…

"The sun is rising to its zenith. Silver-grey boulders lie tumbled along the track among mattresses of thorns and smoke-blue flowers. The storm clouds that hang on the farther mountains do not move. There is no sound but the scrunch of boots and the clink of the sherpa's trekking pole. Underneath the stones glisten with quartz."

"Sometime I'd love to hear the story of how all this emerged" said Dan. "But not now -- off you go to work."

Sagarmatha:
- I sense you brought a new group of people for me to resonate with?

John:
- Yes, yes we did.

Sagarmatha:
- I sense they are exploring, each one, finding out more about how they can best be of service?

John:
- Yes, yes they are. They are among the very best of us.

Sagarmatha:
- I sense you as a group (she didn't say "group" really, she had me see the "group as collective intelligence happening, enacting, unfolding") are having some challenges with timeflow, trustflow and happenflow?

John:
- Yes, we are facing a lot of spacetime constraints, time constraints, presence constraints...

Sagarmatha:
- Would you like to tell me more about this word "constraints"?

John:
- We are moving very quickly through our mortal coils, our loans from Gaia...

Sagarmatha:
- You do know that you and me and everyone else, we are Gaia?

John:
- Yes, as I was saying, we are moving...

Sagarmatha:
- I sense this is a good thing.

John:
- Well, often, when we are moving, we come across obstacles in our path.

Sagarmatha:
- I sense these paths are paths you are moving, walking, climbing, out of your own free will? (again, she didn't use the words "free will", she was saying something closer to "intentional individual individuation inspiration aspect of collective intelligence")

John:
- Yes, yes they are. Oh! Ah, now I see...

Sagarmatha:
- I sense you are climbing really well.

John:
- Yes, I guess we are.

John:
- Thank you Sagarmatha.

Sagarmatha:
- Thank you dear participants, enactivists. Thank you for being here.

21C Workflow: Express Yourself

Unleash Your Creative Flow For Content Writing
How Do We Make Room For Personal Expression?

[We Can] Begin With Improvisation And Refine Structure From There.

Because “Creative" isn’t reserved for the end product, it’s an approach to process.

A Mindset And A Willingness To Take Risks

Each and every time I settle down to begin writing a blog post I feel the anticipation of what might occur. A sense of excitement. The possibilities stretch luxuriously in front of me just waiting to be plucked out of seemingly thin air. But in actuality, the air is thick and full of fragrance. I know that my ideas are yet to be fully formed but I look forward to a fruitful and interesting unraveling process of discovery as I write. I trust the magic and the alchemy of what’s about to occur.

Or I could just as easily have said this-

Each and every time I settle in to write I’m concerned about getting my ideas across and I worry about finding the thread of logic. The classic apprehensions…

How will I make sense out of the thoughts floating (or racing) through my mind? Can I pin them down and make them stop long enough to be crafted into something comprehensible? Will I be able to tap into my deeper self, the one that can pull rabbits out of an empty hat, who feels she has something to say and is capable of saying it?

Most importantly, how will I make it matter to anyone other than myself?

Which is true?

All of it – even though one is more explicitly positive and hopeful, the other is (somewhat) justifiably realistic self-interrogation. Both are helpful attitudes to have and will inform what's about to happen.

Nothing much is merely simple or simply one way. But that’s not a problem. If we can hold both seemingly contradictory sentiments at once, we’ve broadened our potential for knowing ourselves a little better and therefore doing better work. And surprisingly, it will leave more room for creativity if we can absorb and account for opposites.

"Creativity arises out of the tension between spontaneity and limitations, the latter (like the river banks) forcing the spontaneity into the various forms which are essential to the work of art or poem."
            Rollo May, "The Courage To Create"

Truth?

Writing is a challenge. We all know that. And mixed feelings about it flourish in our hesitation. They feed on doubt. Yet we still must write. It’s part of our job.

Before you tighten up the reins, put fences around your thinking, assume there are rules to follow, consider this:

Creativity in content writing can be used as a tool, not merely as a quality that shows up when it's finished as it does in a creative product.

It Can Be As Simple As Beginning

If we approach the process as an improvisation we may stand a greater chance for hitting that alchemy. Skip over the hesitation and dive in even in our uncertainty. Creativity and improvisation within that creative space require us to buoy ourselves for chaos, mistakes, unexpected paths, channels of surprise. Yet it takes just one kernel to put a few words on a page and then let it roll. To allow thoughts to move from brain to finger tip as quickly as they’d like without meticulous preplanning or analysis. Let the mind wander in and around the waves of thought with some spontaneity.

Deep Stuff: Exoplanets

Rings like Saturn's, but supersized. "What he's found is a giant ring system, sort of like Saturn's, but some 200 times bigger, circling what may be an exoplanet between ten and 40 times the size of Jupiter. If you put these rings in our own Solar System, they'd stretch all the way from the Earth to the Sun, a distance of 93 million miles (150 km). And what's more, there's evidence that the rings are sculpted by at least one exomoon -- something that also happens at Saturn, but not remotely on this scale."

"At the time, the observations seemed to make no sense: when a planet passes in front of a star, you usually see a dip in starlight that lasts for up to a few hours. In this case, the starlight dimmed for two months. It wasn't a steady dip, either. The star would fade, then brighten, then fade again, in a way that made no sense at all."___Deep Stuff: Exoplanets

Zen of Small Tasks: Telomere Extension

A new procedure to increase the length of human telomeres has been developed and treated cells behave as if they are much younger than untreated cells, "multiplying with abandon in the laboratory dish rather than stagnating or dying."

"Skin cells with telomeres lengthened by the procedure were able to divide up to 40 more times than untreated cells. The research may point to new ways to treat diseases caused by shortened telomeres."___Zen of Small Tasks: Telomere Extension

Gaia: Greenland

Ht +Seb Paquet​

Ancient ice

If the Greenland ice sheet completely melts, the sea will rise 7.2 meters.  This will drown most of the world’s coastal cities - unless we move them or build dikes.  So ice on Greenland is important. 

It's also a fascinating record of the past!  Scientists just made this wonderful cross-section of Greenland, showing 4 kinds of ice:

• Green is ice from snow that fell on Greenland after the last ice age.  That's after 12,000 years ago.

• Blue is ice from the last ice age.  That's between 12,000 and 115,000 years ago.

• Red is ice from the warm period before the last ice age - the Eemian interglacial.  That's between 115,000 and 130,000 years ago.

• Gray is ice we don't understand yet.

This cross-section is just part of a detailed 3d map of Greenland, built using ice core samples and radar from planes.  Here's a great video that shows the whole 3d map and how it was made:

http://youtu.be/u0VbPE0TOtQ

The Greenland ice sheet is melting at a rate of about 200 cubic kilometers per year.  The rate is increasing at about 17±8 cubic kilometers per year each year.  This sounds bad.  Indeed, Greenland is contributing about as much to sea level rise as Antarctica.  But the Greenland ice sheet won't go away soon.  It has about 2,850,000 cubic kilometers of ice! 

Ice from the last interglacial - the Eemian - was only recently found in Greenland.   For more, read this story by Eric Steig:

http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2013/01/the-greenland-melt/

Puzzle 1: if you extrapolate the constantly accelerating rate of melting that I described, when would the Greenland ice sheet be completely melted?  Of course this is naive, but the calculation is easy and fun.

Puzzle 2: about how many gigatonnes of water are in a cubic kilometer?

Puzzle 3: if it were spread equally over the whole ocean, how much would a cubic kilometer of water raise the sea level?

Puzzle 4: what's the absurd mistake in this web page:

Zen of Small Tasks: Technology & Impact

(video 1min) "Evolution of the Desk" is an initiative borne out of the Harvard Innovation Lab. The goal is to illustrate the impact that technology has had on our lives over the last 35 years. A cluttered desk, complete with a rolodex, a file cabinet, and a fax machine, transforms into a much cleaner, simpler surface consisting of only a laptop and a mobile phone. Of course, some things in life - like the sun - persist, so the shades/sunglasses persist throughout the years.

http://bestreviews.com/best-home-offi...

All of the vintage items featured in this video are authentic. The Macintosh Classic, corded phone, fax machine, globe, corkboard, Polaroid camera, and rolodex were all purchased through individual sellers on Ebay. The radio was acquired from Goodwill, and the picture frame came from pictureframes.com. The rest of the items were found lying around in basements, storage units, and garage sales. And the sunglasses? Those were easy since we actually still own a pair.

How has your desk #evolved over the years?

Good Morning Dear Googleverse Netizens

International Year Of Light
The United Nations has declared 2015 the International Year of Light in order to "highlight to the citizens of the world the importance of light and optical technologies in their lives, for their futures, and for the development of society."

NASA seems more than eager to help with the effort and released a set of spectacular photos taken by its Chandra X-Ray Observatory space telescope.

Image:
When a massive star exploded in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy to the Milky Way, it left behind an expanding shell of debris called SNR 0519-69.0. Here, multimillion degree gas is seen in X-rays from Chandra (blue). The outer edge of the explosion (red) and stars in the field of view are seen in visible light from Hubble.

Play: Raven's Fruits

Game: Raven's Fruits
Dealing with negative emotions

So, my little kindergarten kids don't always know how to behave. Like every little kid, they have their times when they mess up each other's toys on purpose because they don't get their way, sulk and don't want to come to dinner, etc. So how should they deal with negative emotions?

Make logic take over before emotions take over
The amygdala is one of the emotional centers of your brain. When you are upset, it triggers you to react before you think – resulting in tamper tantrums, highs and lows, and getting upset. Mark Goulston proposes a ten-step process to recognizing this pattern and reacting to it before the negative emotions take over:
1. Trigger awareness – Pause immediately when something upsets you.
2. Physical awareness – Think of where and how intensely you are feeling it.
3. Emotional awareness – Think of an emotion word that applies to what you are feeling.
4. Impulse awareness – Think of what it makes you want to do.
5. Consequence awareness – Think of what will happen if you do that.
6. Taking it too personal awareness – Think of whether you may be taking things too personally.
7. Reality check awareness – Think of whether there may be an alternate explanation for what happened.
8. Solution awareness – Think of a different solution than your impulse.
9. Benefit awareness – Think of the benefits of following the alternate solution.
10. Special person awareness – If you can’t talk yourself out of reacting, imagine someone who deeply cares about you and what they would say if you did that.

Materials
Preparation: You will need a game board, some game markers (rabbit, dog, bear, and porcupine), a die, a pile of fruit cards (apples, oranges, cherries pears), and a spinner.

The game takes you through steps 1-4.

The spinner simplifies steps 5-10  into three sections:
Consequence: What will happen if you do that?
Solution: Is there a better alternative reaction? What makes that reaction better?
Reality check: Could there be another reason for what happened? Are you taking it too personally?

How it works
Setup: Each player gets 10 fruits and picks one game marker. The game markers are placed on GO. The youngest player goes first.

Gameplay: In each turn:
 - the player rolls the die and moves that number of spaces forwards. Read the situation and perform the requested action. If you land on a green square, your turn is over. If you land on a red square, then continue in these instructions until the turn is over.
 - How do you feel as a result of that action? Pick the emotion face that corresponds most closely. If you feel very strongly, then put three fruits on that face. If you feel moderately strongly affected by the situation, then put two fruits on that face. If you feel only lightly affected by the situation, then put one fruit on the face.
 - State how you would react to the situation.
 - The player spins the spinner. Read the question - anyone can answer.
 - If the answer leads to a "better" solution, then the player keeps all of the fruits on the face and takes the same number of fruit from the raven. If the answer leads to a "worse" or the same solution, then the raven gets all the fruits on the face.
 - The turn is over and the next player rolls.

The game ends when the raven has all the fruit, or the raven has no fruit. If the raven has all the fruit, then the raven wins. If the raven has no fruit, then the players win.

Does it work?
Well, good question. :) I don't know yet! I'm waiting for my two little ones to come home and test it out... and will see whether their reactions end up milder over time. I'll update the post when they're there!

Update: the kids reactions seems to be a bit mixed. My son figured out fairly quickly that he needs to improve his rection (lets see if he applies that the next time he fights with his sister!) in order to get ahead, but my daughter was often happy when most people would be upset by the situation - which is consistent with her behaviour, but didn't always help in discussing her reaction.

Life in the Village: When Did You Stop Dancing?

"In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions: "When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?"
-- Gabrielle Roth

Life in the Village: When Did You Stop Dancing?

"In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions: "When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?"
-- Gabrielle Roth

Life in the Village, part 156: Battle of Jarrab, north of Riyadh

Captain William Shakespear.

#onthisday  in 1915, 100 years ago, Captain William Shakespear, explorer and military advisor of Ibn Sa'ud, future king of Saudi Arabia, was killed during the  Battle of Jarrab, north of Riyadh, before he could become “Shakespear of Arabia”.

“I think you are another of these desert-Ioving English. Doughty, Stanhope, Gordon of Khartoum. No Arab loves the desert. We love water and green trees. There is nothing in the desert. And no man needs nothing. Or is it that you think we are something you can play with...” (Prince Faisal in “Lawrence of Arabia“)

It was one of the “what ifs” in history. Not a major one, at least not at the time, since it was two decades before oil was discovered in the Arabian peninsula, but at least it happened close to the Suez Canal, British India and at the backdoor of the crumbling Ottoman Empire on the eve of the Great War. It was not as if the various Arab tribes and factions in the Najd, the central region of present-day Saudi-Arabia and the Hejaz, the eastern coast, were exactly chafing under the Ottoman yoke. Imperial supremacy was usually exerted through the local sherifs and princes, even though the local ultra-conservative Wahhabi leaders had been rather alienated by the new-fangled, secular ideas of the “Young Turks” at the High Porte. The Sultan in Constantinople was still seen as the Defender of the Faith. Somehow.

Before the war, affairs in regards to local “Asiatic powers” in places bordering the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf were usually handled by the IPD, the Bombay-based “Indian Political Department”. Born in Bombay and educated in England, the dashing young Sandhurst graduate Lt William Shakespear, 17th Bengal Cavalry, chose to become a “Political”, as members of the department were known, learned Urdu, Pushtu, Farsi and Arabic, earned some merits as a civil servant and became the youngest consul the IPD ever had at the age of 25. At the back of beyond. In Bandar Abbas on the Strait of Hormuz. However remote the place was from pressing political matters of the day, though, Consul William Shakespear made the best of it and became an explorer, took his army compass, a sextant and his trusty glass-plate camera, packed it in his Rover motor car bought from a Karachi dealer and set forth to explore the desert and drove the vehicle on his first home leave through Persia, Turkey and Europe to France in 1907. On his returned to Kuwait, he became an avid falconer, obtained a brace of saluki hounds, rode a camel as well as a Bengal lancer’s cavalry horse, explored the Najd and became a fast friend of Abdulaziz ibn Saud, Lord of Riyadh since a few years and not exactly on good terms with the Turks. And while William Shakespear travelled more than 1,800 miles through the uncharted Najd and became his own legend among the local tribes, the Foreign Office and the IPD considered their policy of non-intervention on the peninsula when things went pear-shaped on a rather global scale in August 1914.
   

Oil had become increasingly important during the first years of the 20th century. In industrial production and as fuel for the new super-dreadnoughts that secured Britain’s lifelines and contained the Kaiser’s battle fleet when war broke out. One of the first moves of the war in the Middle Eastern theatre was a push from British India into Ottoman Mesopotamia, present-day Iraq, to secure the pipelines and all of a sudden, William Shakespear’s friendship with Abdulaziz and his people was a strategic asset on the southern flank of the march to Basra and Bagdad. Personal connections as well as weapons and money, lots of money then and a lot more later, persuaded Abdulaziz to make his move against the nominal Ottoman overlords. Refusing to dress in the robes of a sheriff of the Beni Wejh or something similar like his more famous colleague two years later, William Shakespear, now promoted to captain, wore the staunch khaki and the pith helmet of an officer of the British Indian Army when he rode with Abdulaziz’ irregular cavalry into the first major battle with Abdulaziz’ old rival, the pro-Ottoman Saud Ibn Rashid. “Abd al-'Aziz wants me to clear out but I really want to see the show and I don't think it will be unsafe really...." Shakespear had written to his brother a few weeks before. He couldn’t be more wrong. Accounts vary if he took photographs or directed the fire of one of Abdulaziz’ guns when the Rashidis charged. He was shot thrice and died. By the end of the year, Abdulaziz had signed the Anglo-Saudi Treaty, but British emphasis on the scene had shifted from Bombay to Cairo, supporting rather Sherif Hussein bin Ali, Feisal and the Kingdom of Hejaz and it was another lieutenant and “political” who became world-famous when the Arab Revolt begun and not “Shakespear of Arabia”

Depicted below to the upper left is Abdulaziz ibn Saud, “"a fair, handsome man, considerably above average Arab height with a particularly frank and open face, and after initial reserve...of genial and very courteous manner", as Shakespear had described him, below is his army shown on the march, both photographs were taken by Shakespear, archived along with a lot of the pictures he took by the Royal Geographic Society on http://images.rgs.org/search_.aspx?artistID=6994 and found as illustrations of an excellent article from the BBC’s “Round the Bend”series, named “Shakespear of Arabia” on http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-magazine-monitor-30796539 - to the right is Captain William Henry Irvine Shakespear in full dress uniform.

Life in the Village, part 155: Paavo's Day

Ht +Sakari Maaranen​

Paavo's Day tomorrow has been an important milestone for the winter. It was said that Paavo is the best part of winter, as the days are brighter, and people can enjoy the shining sun reflecting from the pure white snow. 

Paavo's Day was considered the centre of winter, by the time which half of the snow had fallen and half of the animal food consumed. The week following Paavo was called 'talvennapa' (winter's centre) in some areas and the Wednesday of that week was referred to as the mid-winter Wednesday.

On Paavo's Day the sun shines her light even to the “back of the sleigh”. It was said that if the sun shone brightly throughout the day - or at least so long that man could harness his horse - it would be a good year for grain and the spring would be beautiful. Brightness also predicted good pea harvest, and pea soup was traditionally eaten in south-western Finland on Paavo's Day.

If people didn't have the soup ingredients, they went to the neighbour asking for "Paavo's peas" and pig's trotters. Rich families paid for these, but poorer people got them for free. Generosity brought good luck to the house, as it also did on other feasts, and ensured the pea harvest would succeed in the coming summer.

If there was snowfall on Paavo so that the sleigh tracks on the ground were covered; flax, hemp, tobacco and potato would not grow well. Yet in other predictions, some snowfall on Paavo predicts good harvest, at least for pea. If it snowed so much that straws were covered, the year would be bad and unlucky.

Although the days are already brighter around Paavo, the weather can hardly be called warm. People talked about “Paavo, the friend of frost, snotty nose, the beard covered with ice". It was also said that if the weather wasn't cold on Paavo, the summer would be no good and harvest would fail. On the other hand, Paavo's warm southern wind at least predicted a good berry season.

Squirrel Appreciation Day: 10 Nutty Facts

Why exactly is National Squirrel Appreciation Day (January 21) so popular? Maybe it’s because squirrels are adorable, and extremely fun to watch. Maybe it’s the many hats they wear (not real hats — please don’t put hats on squirrels). What I mean is, they play a variety of roles, like acrobat, bandit, gardener, trickster and much more. I set out to discover why these creatures are worthy of their own day, and after you read the facts I found, you might just appreciate squirrels a little more.
