Alister Macintyre42,106Do not confuse this circle with the one I have on Native American Indian interests.  My India Circle has people whose lives have either passed thru the great nation of India, are there now, or interested in India.  My interests range world wide, some nations more than others.  I recently started an Asia circle, and tried to pour into it my circles for Australia, China, Japan, India, some other countries, but bumped into another of G+ silly ceilings.  I have circles for several major regions of the world, including Middle East, Eu-W, and Eu-other.  I also have circles for specific nations like Germany and Haiti.2014-03-27 18:26:53148002

What else can you take away from people already on minimal salary with minimal job security? How about limiting their ability to work?

Amazon demands employees sign 18-month non-compete agreement to get a three-month-long job

Amazon simply can’t have it both ways. It can’t employ people for part of the year and then do its best to make sure those people can’t work anywhere else. Well, actually, it can, since it views most of its non-technical workers as easily-replaced cogs in its global machine. But that doesn’t make this less disgusting.

Warehouse workers hired for three-month contracts are being required to sign 18 month non-competes.

Well that's a vote for Polymer. Google is using it in the Chrome UI.

Last but not least, Chrome settings page is getting a Material Design look as we speak in Chrome Canary.

By simply toggling the experimental flag named "Enable Material Design settings" at chrome://flags/#enable-md-settings, you can now follow the early work in progress of the Material Design settings page at chrome://md-settings.

One thing happening under the hood is the use of Polymer¹ and custom Polymer elements to have a consistent Material Design look and feel across all Chrome UI. Wondering what are the other Polymer projects? Check out this list².

"...markets don't exist in a state of nature; they're human creations. Governments don't intrude on free markets; governments organize and maintain markets. Markets aren't "free" of rules; the rules define them."

I once spent two months in the People's Republic of China travelling around and seeing the sights. In that time I saw more public arguments, screaming matches, fistfights and scuffles than I have ever seen anywhere else in my life, before or since.

I don't think it takes much effort to start what people there call a "mass incident" i.e. riot but perhaps there are understandable structural reasons for this. Maybe it all stems from China's unreformable authoritarianism in which all legitimate channels for complaint are blocked.

Hence the nonsense of 19th century style nationalism that always tries to reduce everything down to race.

It really should be obvious that most British, including those who claim Anglo Saxon descent, are descended mainly from people who have been on the island a lot longer, probably going back to the last Ice Age. All British are Britons, even the English.

While the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings did invade and did replace the language of the former Celtic speakers, there's no reason to think that these invaders were so numerous that they significantly altered the genetic makeup of the island. More usual for these types of invasions is that the ruling class gets replaced by the invading warriors but the peasantry continues life as usual. The people adopt and emulate the ways and culture of their rulers and language replacement can sometimes be very rapid.

This kind of thing has happened many times before where languages change but the people speaking them stay the same. For example, in the Middle East where the former Roman population adopted Arabic instead of Latin and Greek. Or in Turkey where the actual Turkmen invaders were numerically few and the majority of today's Turks are descended from the formerly Greek speaking Byzantines.

A plan so crazy, it might just work.

Via +Marcelo Camelo​

One of Project Loon’s earliest Eureka moments was the idea that we could provide continuous Internet connection not by keeping balloons stationary over a given location (which would require lots and lots of energy to work against the wind) but by coordinating a fleet of balloons to work with the wind, such that when one balloon leaves a location another moves into its place to continue providing connectivity. In theory, this means that any individual balloon would provide connection in one place and then, days later, provide connection at another location at the opposite end of the world. In our latest long distance LTE test this is exactly what we achieved!

Launched from New Zealand, our globe-connecting balloon made the first leg its journey travelling 9000 km over the Pacific Ocean. Approaching our test location in Chile at a speed of 80 km/h, a command was sent for the balloon to rise into a wind pattern that slowed it down to a quarter of its speed, allowing it to drift overhead members of the Loon operations team who were able to connect to the balloon via smartphones on our test-partner mobile network. 

Hanging around for half an hour to complete the connection testing, the balloon was then sent off on the winds over the South Atlantic ocean towards its next test location, over 10,000 km away in Australia! Our balloon completed this second leg of the journey in just 8 days, travelling over 1000 km per day and reaching a top speed of 140 km/h while whizzing over the ocean south of Africa. Once at the east coast of Australia the Loon Mission Control team implemented a series of altitude maneuvers to catch different winds and reverse the balloon path, lining it up to directly overfly our test location. Having travelled over 20,000 km around the world the balloon flew overhead at a ground distance of less than 500 meters away from our target (well within the 40,000 meter radius required for connection) to provide over 2 hours of Internet connection. That level of precision is like hitting a hole-in-one in golf from over 4 km away!

Tests like this give us real insight into how Project Loon can work at scale. With more balloons in the stratosphere and more Telco partners around the world capable of supporting Loon internet traffic, our ability to provide continuous connection in rural and remote areas will only increase. ___A plan so crazy, it might just work.

Melbourne time:
Saturday, 4 Apr 2015

Begins:  8:03 PM
Maximum: 11:00 PM
Ends: 1:58 AM

Duration: 5 hours, 55 minutes

The total eclipse of the full moon on April 4, 2015 will last less than five minutes, making it the shortest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century. The total lunar eclipse will be visible from western North America, eastern Asia, the Pacific, Australia and New Zealand. At North American time zones, that means the greatest eclipse happens before sunrise on April 4 – the morning of April 4, not the evening. From the world’s Eastern Hemisphere – eastern Asia, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia – the greatest eclipse takes place after sunset April 4. 
- http://earthsky.org/tonight/shortest-total-lunar-eclipse-of-the-century-on-april-4-2015

Image Explanation: The bloody red color the moon takes on during an eclipse is caused by refraction of sunlight by the Earth's atmosphere. It is the same effect that you see when the sun turns reddish-orange at sunset, only in this case the refracted sunlight projects all the way to the moon.
----------------------------------------

Some speculate that this Lunar eclipse (Blood Moon) could be a fulfillment of biblical prophecy. However, that is all that it is... speculation.

Here is the Atlantis text in its entirety: 

The most famous of them all was the overthrow of the island of Atlantis. This great island lay over against the Pillars of Heracles [the entrance of the Mediterranean sea], in extent greater than Libya and Asia put together [North-West coast of Africa and Turkey] , and was the passage to other islands and to a great ocean of which the Mediterranean sea was only the harbour; and within the Pillars the empire of Atlantis reached in Europe to Tyrrhenia [Tuscanny] and in Libya to Egypt.

This mighty power was arrayed against Egypt and Hellas [Greece] and all the countries bordering on the Mediterranean. Then your city did bravely, and won renown over the whole earth. For at the peril of her own existence, and when the other Hellenes had deserted her, she repelled the invader, and of her own accord gave liberty to all the nations within the Pillars. A little while afterwards there were great earthquakes and floods, and your warrior race all sank into the earth; and the great island of Atlantis also disappeared in the sea. This is the explanation of the shallows which are found in that part of the Atlantic ocean.

That's a lot of fascination for such a puny paragraph.
