Daniel Mihai Popescu25,731So Google Plus works on changing the relevance coefficient.+Christine DeGraff says that +Ehsan Ahmadi Gharacheh of +Circloscope already solved it. I'm afraid I still have doubts.This is a circle with my most relevant people. I am sorry, but it has been a little bit larger, I have eliminated 19 profiles I have never communicated with. It is a great probability that people I love and I have a connection here, are absent. The relevance was given by Circloscope, it's the first time I made a circle directly with them.Trying to make the screenshot with "most relevant 50" resulted in a complete fiasco, a picture where the only person I've recognized, was +Erika Velasquez, which is ok, but... (now, I exaggerate a little, but I think the relevance was given on a more global scale, because I saw also a few Twitter faces, which made my circles from the beginning, but again, no real communication). Adjusting the relevance numbers, it came with this list :)I like the circle cover, Google is making a real progress with that. We can't yet customize it, but it shows a better relevance reflection.So, dear friends, enjoy this circle, because you were picked by the machine, not by me. I have had little to do with it :)A plus one will be more than sufficient!Top 24 on Circloscope's list is exactly in this order:+Adriana Popovici +Richard Green +Cesare Riccardo +Simona AN +Edith Kukla +Christine DeGraff +Bearman Cartoons +Dirk Talamasca +Scott Buehler 2013-12-02 19:14:594611504990

Max Huijgen46,779The 100 most relevant people on G+ you really should check out. It´s impossible to select the people which contributes most to my experience on G+ so I´ll let Google do the dirty work.These 98 people (and 2 pages I helped founding) are the most relevant ones according to Google´s circle sort so they deserve a spot in the Friday sun.  If you´re not in it, be assured I really enjoy your posts and/or comments. I meet a lot of great people here, but this self imposed limit to 100 is just to make it easier for others to circle the whole bunch and check them out.2013-06-21 19:32:111001221459

Imperfect Thoughts on Palestine, Israel, Putin and the Enemy Within

I've been quietly observing everyone's passionate posts about the Middle East and Malaysian plane crises. For those who know me, "quiet" is not my natural state. However, these conflicts are so complex, so controversial, and seemingly insoluble that I wanted to take my time formulating my opinion.  Here it is...and it's probably not what you'd expect.

Polar Opposites

In many ways, the two situations couldn't be more different. The struggle in the Middle East is rooted in religion and thousands of years of animosity. It is also a struggle between two adversaries where one clearly has most of the leverage.

The tension between Russia and the West couldn't be more cold, rational, or calculated. Both sides know exactly what's at stake and both... more »

13 years ago this morning America was a very different place. We didn't all get along. We didn't all agree. But we didn't have what we have now... an insatiable desire to crush all those that don't agree with every last thing we believe in.
It's so sad what we lost 13 years ago this morning. We lost far more than almost 3,000 people in NY and DC. We lost our humanity towards each other.

We allowed them to win by betraying that humanity.

My wife has Google Voice on her Android phone and came to me with this problem that I'm unable to solve. If anyone texts her at her GV number she also gets the text within her Gmail inbox. She just wants it in her messaging app. I don't use GV, so I'm of no help after looking through Gmail settings. 
Any help appreciated.

It's been awhile since I wrote something on Medium. This story is a look at a time pretty much gone now. Hitchhiking. 35 years ago as an 18-year --old I decided to take a few months to see America. I had good times with good people, I had times where I fought off those looking to take advantage of me. It was an eye-opening experience to say the least. I still miss the freedom of the road.

The latest podcast episode of Dan Carlin's Common Sense is thought provoking. Episode 286 Dissin' & Dueling.  One of the themes is how Americans would react to an American version of Charlie Hebdo that featured racially caricatured cartoons of Obama et cetera. The free speech discussion is very interesting.

Looking for MS Publisher alternatives... free or cheap. My wife has been using Publisher for pamplets for her business, but she has now switched computers and the version of Office she was using (a friends copy) will not work on her new laptop since MS made Office cloud-based. Publisher is the only Office program she uses so it seems silly to pay yearly if there is an alternative out there MS-based.
Thoughts?

Who knew that skin cancer, naked celebs, and crappy Amazon tv pilots could be in the same podcast? When it's +Randy Resnick and I doing a podcast...  they can.

LTB Episode 032: Diverse collection of events
I didn't know anything about the celebrity nude photo scandal. I don't feel any better now that I do. On the other hand, the warning from +James Barraford about potential hazards of tanning or allowing skin eruptions of any kind to go unexamined is pretty grim, although he seems to be on the road to recovery. Finally, Amazon has the 5 new pilots of which I've seen two:
The Cosmopolitans: I'm an unfair critic as I lived in Paris for over two decades. If I must say something nice, it's that photos of Paris are usually worth looking at, even if the actors aren't.
Hysteria: Facebook can kill you! is the message of this cautionary tale that starts with teenaged girls doing something incredibly stupid that then gets posted on "social media".

If using a little water and raising many times over the normal amount of donations is silly..... then the world can use a lot more silly.

Don't want to do the #icebucketchallenge  fine. Your choice. But the piss and moan club belittling it are just ridiculous. It's raised many times over the normal amount of donations. Many who do the challenge still donate. For the piss and moaners... shut up and go find a real injustice to bitch about.

Our latest podcast gets serious on current events. We touch on the Robin Williams suicide with very personal discussion on battling depression and anxiety. We then have a spirited talk on the situation in Ferguson and the police determination to keep the media from showing what is really happening there. 

We're not pundits, we're just human beings
I don't usually like to comment on current events because unless you were there, you don't really know which Tweets reports are accurate. We do know, though, that police have been increasingly over-armed and often over reacting to ordinary citizens, this time in a town I never knew existed until today, #Ferguson.

The recent apparent suicide of Robin Williams has also degraded into reports of drones flying over the house and bullying of his family on social media. +James Barraford and I will always agree on one concept:
Unless you've walked in someone's shoes, don't pretend to know what they feel
We both recognize that the mind is still pretty much uncharted, compared to the nervous system and the relief of say, pain at the dentist. There is no novocaine for troubled thoughts and it's possible to drown in them. If you're lucky, you have a partner or family that can help. Sometimes, even that isn't enough. The torture gets worse until you believe you can only stop it one way: by ending all sensation. You're not thinking clearly at that point and no amount of wisdom or "bravery" can help. All we can do is to try to be vigilant and kind.___Our latest podcast gets serious on current events.

Does God decide who steps on doomed airplanes? Does God care who wins a game? Thats part of the latest podcast by +Randy Resnick and myself. We also venture thoughts on Gaza/Russia, social media photo bombing and other weighty topics. 
We'd love to hear your thoughts on the podcast.

Imperfect Thoughts on Palestine, Israel, Putin and the Enemy Within

I've been quietly observing everyone's passionate posts about the Middle East and Malaysian plane crises. For those who know me, "quiet" is not my natural state. However, these conflicts are so complex, so controversial, and seemingly insoluble that I wanted to take my time formulating my opinion.  Here it is...and it's probably not what you'd expect.

Polar Opposites

In many ways, the two situations couldn't be more different. The struggle in the Middle East is rooted in religion and thousands of years of animosity. It is also a struggle between two adversaries where one clearly has most of the leverage.

The tension between Russia and the West couldn't be more cold, rational, or calculated. Both sides know exactly what's at stake and both recognize each other's leverage. If Germany wants its lights to work, it can't swing its bratwurst around. 

Ukraine is a symbol of a faded Soviet empire and Putin wants his baby back, baby back.  Malaysia is the beleaguered victim, albeit with obviously shitty flight schools. 

But the path forward in both situations is more similar than you'd think.

Peace is Upon Us...Almost

I am not naive enough to believe some blog post will change anything. But neither will militarism - in either situation.  There was a time, not long ago, when that wasn't the case.

The whole of human history is rooted in conflict over land and resources. Entire empires rose and disappeared, leaving millions conquered, raped, or marginalized. Things normalized, then it started all over again. Ottomans, Greeks, Romans, Spanish, Persians, T'ang. All of them, intermittently awesome for some - brutal and bloody for many. Today's war is to those wars what dining at Le Cirque is to a pie eating contest.

Even though the news might convince you otherwise, the planet has never been more peaceful (http://ow.ly/zt8Cm).  There are three main reasons for that:

1- Nuclear power - seeing the destruction possible with two atomic bombs dropped on Japan gave the entire world pause. Yes, there was a scramble to attain the weapons. But their very existence keeps nations out of wars. Otherwise, everybody goes boom. 

2 - Economics and capitalism - The world is on the brink of ending poverty (http://econ.st/1nkoKiC). And it's not good intentions, charity, or bags of rice that made it happen. It was economics and capitalism. When people can make and trade goods that others want, not only do they feel a sense of purpose, but they can sustainably change their lives - and those of future generations. They can afford food, healthcare, and education. As important, they become intertwined with the global economy. No one is stupid enough to bomb their customers, suppliers, or investors. China will sooner buy up all our casinos than launch missiles.

3 - Education and secularization - According to the Global Peace Index (http://bit.ly/1pblOFe), countries with the most educated and least religious citizens are the wealthiest and most peaceful. It's a direct correlation.  That doesn't mean that there's no room for personal faith, but in a life filled with universities and Wikipedia and online courses, you'd be hard pressed to motivate someone to kill for the promise of being George Clooney in heaven. Of course, if this life is shitty and hopeless, it's game on.  

So the path forward seems clear. In the absence of state on state smackdowns, whatever brutality is left can be eradicated in two ways: economics and education. Let's apply that to today's situations.

The Enemy...and Power Lies Within

The advice I often give friends and entrepreneurs is very simple: The world will put 20 obstacles in your way - you were born poor, or short, or had an abusive parent, or got swindled by someone you trusted. You can spend a lifetime marinating in bitterness, focusing on externalities you can't do anything about. Or, you can focus on five of those 20 things you can influence, if not change. It won't guarantee success or luck, but it will create opportunities for both to happen.

I feel tremendous sympathy for the suffering of the Palestinian people. They are at the mercy of a powerful nation that has a duty to defend its citizens. In doing so, it can put up barricades, choke off trade, and kill innocents in pursuit of militants. But Israel isn't the real enemy. Palestinians face two ugly enemies within:

- Militants who agitate a powerful military and protect themselves using families as human shields.

- Leaders who steal billions in aid instead of building schools, infrastructure, and stimulating commerce. Like the militants, they benefit from the perpetual victimization of their people. That is why they've rejected several offers of the pre-1967 borders they originally demanded (http://ow.ly/ztcc9 ).

I am by no means blaming the victim. In fact, I want to empower them - and stop them from being victims. With the right leadership and stability, Palestine can be a magnet for investment. It's only 4 million people!  They can have commerce and education. In fact, they had a growing economy until 2011 (http://bit.ly/UmSgt8 ). 

Despite the saber rattling and snarky Tweets, the harsh truth is not Arabs, not Israelis, not Europe, and not the US will ever lift a finger to fix Palestine. They might throw them a few billion in cash or guns to fuel the conflict, but there's ultimately nothing in it for them.

Now is the time to convert international sympathy to securing a two-state agreement, like the one Clinton proposed. It's time to focus within, on the handful of things Palestinians can control. To demand more of their own leaders and purge Hamas from their own neighborhoods. Having started life as a poor immigrant, my parents taught me poverty is no excuse for living in a dirty house.

In time, I hope Palestine becomes so safe, so smart, and so productive that the world - and Israel - can't help but demand their products or services.   Ironically, it's not independence that will save Palestine, but interdependence.

Postscript on Russia

Much like the path for Palestine, the way to de-claw Putin is with economics, not empty threats. That means supplying enough energy to Europe to supplant Russia's oil and gas. Whether it's renewables or natural gas, when we can run competing pipes, we'll never again have to stare at Vladimir's sexy, shirtless hunting photos.___I've read this post several times in the past two days and now sharing it.
