Ole Olson39,934This is my newest political circle. If you know that there are solutions to the problems that we face, and understand that standing united to move forward is the answer, this circle is for you. These folks are intelligent commenters, good engagers, activists at heart, and have a progressive stream of posts that are fun to read.2014-02-10 02:52:51181227CC G+
Jane Ellen43,979I call this one my Big Ball-0-Fun.  I started with Dede's Fundies, thank you +Dede Craig King and added smaller circles I had made, along with a science circle from +Ray Sanders ,  and some small circles from +Lynette Young and +Carter Gibson and I don't even know who else.  So I haven't organized circles in two years.  You wanna make sumpin' of it? #sharedcircles   #circleshare  #newbies 2013-09-06 17:42:0642926629CC G+
Brian Wolfe22,328I haven't shared a circle in a long time. Maybe too long.Anyways.. Here is the circle that my browser spends the most time on.   Just in case I become a petulant child and walk away (not that I'm planning on doing so , just in case.)2013-08-22 05:36:251941335CC G+
Alex Grossman56,667G+ Engagers CircleIt's been a while since I shared a circle, so here's a small circle of people I recommend following. They are great to engage with, full of energy and opinions and fun, with very little anger, disrespect, or poor manners. Hope you enjoy all of them as much as I do. They certainly make my time in G+ lots of fun. :)2013-08-22 03:31:187510711CC G+

Dede King0The Fundie CircleIt's round. I've hand picked the ones I interact with not because they're relevant to me or because of what they post, but because I could pick them out of a line-up, state their name and at least one fact about them and they're generally wonderful people to know. The top 10 I'd probably bail out of jail and take a bullet for, but that's neither here nor there. One thing none of them can be accused of, is being soporific. As a disclaimer: Circle with caution or stalk quietly as the circle is filled with every type of G+ user that might not appeal to all tastes including:1. Photo fundies2. Meme fundies3. Gif fundies4. News link reshare fundies5. Art fundies6. Science fundies7. Music fundies8. Narcissistic fundies9. Selfie shot fundies10. Food fundies11. Passive-aggressive one liner vague posting fundies12. Contrarian fundies (not trolls, just opinionated)13. Long form post fundies14. Leg humper fundies15. Lastly, the G+ fundies (they know everything about G+ and will tell you how to Internet)16. High Voltage Noms (+A.V. Flox)17. Low Voltage Noms (+Jake Kern)18. Cat fundies (+Bobbi Jo Woods)19. Sine Wave Noms (+fan tai)It's not really a circle meant to be shared, just my way of saying hey to all of you that make this place worth while <3 No hard feelings if I forgot anyone, it happens. Have a wonderful day.2013-04-17 15:28:3834742831130CC G+

Dave Tozier0+Danial Hallock originally shared this post:The Three HundredRevised CopyIt's been about a month since my last share of #thethreehundred  so I wanted to share the revised copy of the circle; and true to my word, there have been a lot of revisions in the last month.For example, I've gone through each and every one of the 200 some odd recommendations and circle shares that came about from the last circle share.  As a result, of the original 297 that were shared a little under a month ago (http://goo.gl/xqGb4), I removed approximately 137 300ers and added 129 new members.  You can expect this circle to continue to change, but I think the triple digit adjustments are mostly done.  For those of you just joining us, this is a continuation of a project where I've been changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).As always, If you're notified you're in it.

Alex Grossman27,422Last time I shared a relevancy circle was back in July. From then until now (October 19), it's only changed by 7 people, and most but not all of that was near the end of the list. So, it's remarkably consistent.These 99 users are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself, so a total of 100). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is definitely more accurate now than last time. Does the algorithm get better over time due to more data? I still suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd still be curious and interested to learn more about it.Anyway, these people are relevant to me and truly help me enjoy my time sharing, talking, discussing, and hanging out on G+. So, thank you to all of you :)TGIF and have a great start to the weekend!P.S. - Typical inconsistent G+ - I could share the Movie Lovers Circle earlier today with about 130 people being notified. However, by mid-morning I couldn't notify the 99 people in this Circle. Now, I can again. But it appears that instead of setting a limit on the number of people in a circle, maybe they've set a limit on the number of people you could notify in a set period of time? Very strange. If anybody has any clue as to why this is, please let me know.2012-10-20 03:24:2710023124CC G+
Alex Grossman27,364It's TGIF so hope you have a great day. Here's a Circle I thought I'd share today for Follow Friday - Movie Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about movies, all kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, engaging with others, sharing and exchanging comments, please let me know and I can try and add you to this Circle (notification limits permitting). If you're a member of this circle, you agree to participate in a respectful manner. Due to the changing and, at times uncertain, notification restrictions Google has in terms of number of people you can notify with a post I've split this up into two Circle. The overflow from this Circle can be found at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/Ad9LJFo9PLrFYI - you can find today's movie thread at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/RDDzuGdsvLX #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #movies   #film  2012-10-19 14:01:4110111219CC G+

Andrew Eva2,872Thought for #followfriday   I'd share my "Makes me Think" circle.These folks all post things, or engage in my posts, with comments and thoughts that make me think. If I find myself at home, hours later, still thinking about a comment, or post, or idea that was being discussed, one of these individuals was most likely part of that discussion or triggered the thought.I hope they all challenge you to think as well.2012-09-28 17:25:226233626CC G+
Alex Grossman26,573For another Follow Friday Circle for today, here is my Music Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about and listen to music. All kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. Unlike other circles, not all shares will be public since some people don't want to see playlists or song shares in their stream. So, articles and discussions of artists, software, the industry, etc will be public and playlists from Spotify or songs may (but not always) be shared to Circles only. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, exchanging comments back and forth, sharing music, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. You only need to agree that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful manner.For a playlist I shared today, go to:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/7vrRYxfXr4c #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #playlist   #music  2012-09-28 14:23:558512112CC G+

Alex Grossman24,371My Top 99 circle - is Relevancy Accurate?These are the 99 users who are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is surprisingly accurate until the last bit of it when some names appeared and others were left off. I suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd be curious to continue the discussions I've seen on other similar threads this week.Want to create your own? (instructions borrowed/stolen from +Max Huijgen )► Click circles on the tab on the right► Make sure relevance is selected (default)► Select the top 99 users.

Alex Grossman24,072For my second Circle today for Follow Friday, here is my Respectful Politics Circle. This Circle is by request only and not for the faint of heart. It's filled with people who are passionate about politics and issues that impact society and come from across the political spectrum - the point is to have fun, learn and share. If you're interested in joining the discussions, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. No commitment to share your own posts, but it is preferred that you at least comment semi-regularly so as to encourage discussion. Just keep in mind that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful and civil manner. Let your passion fill you, but always temper it with manners, respect and politeness. Bullies will not be tolerated. The point is not to "win" but to learn. #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #politics  2012-07-20 15:10:0498901CC G+

Lamar Jamieson0Quite an interesting circle. You will find here a great variety of people. From artists, writers and photographers to business people. Please add & share!2012-07-04 12:30:44190717CC G+
Kyle Beck0So, I know a lot of my friends who have joined +Google+ wonder "What's the point? I have a Facebook." Well that comparison was flawed from the beginning, although many people made it while trying to describe G+. There are similarities, but one of my favorite features in G+ has been the ability to share Circles with others. In fact I'm not sure I would see the point if I hadn't been shared this very circle by +Robert Scoble (IIRC) early on in my G+ membership. It has proven an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute Tech News over the past year and really showed me how G+ is very different from FB.See, when you visit FB the information you receive is solely from your family and real-life acquaintances. This can be great for keeping up with people you don't see regularly, etc., but it is very hard to reach out to new people who share your interests through FB. Not so on G+. You can create and share groups of friends and pages (Circles) to organize your social interests. In effect, this creates dynamic communities where you can choose who you interact with.Anyways, I hope you will consider adding this Circle, packed full of Tech Enthusiasts. If you don't really use G+ or wonder what the point is, that goes double for you!2012-06-30 00:28:364881003CC G+
Danial Hallock (Kysimir)0Teach Me SomethingI briefly alluded to my recent change in how I manage my circles and my reduction from twelve circles to seven (http://goo.gl/ZObSz).  This is the first of three shares that will include a vetted group of individuals that excel in the Google Plus experience in some way.These particular individuals excel at, you guessed it, teaching me something.  There's nearly one hundred plussers here, all of whom post once a week (or more), so while not every single post is educational, you're going to walk away from this stream knowing more than you did walking in.They're all in one circle, but they're not all from one background.  +Paula Jones, for example, excels at teaching us about the #politics  and societal issues of American life.  Meanwhile, +Joshua Tenner is a #paleo  enthusiast and +Kristjan Gunnarsson maintains a #fitness  and #nutrition  blog.  That's just to name a few, there are a few biologists, astronomers, tech giants, philosophers, and just all around smart people.  So if you're looking to spice up your Google Plus experience with a game of educational Russian Roulette, then pick up this circle!  For some more highly educational posters, check out my No Name Needed circle: http://goo.gl/p8yri #sharingiscaring   #circleshare  2012-06-23 12:58:329418119CC G+

Meilani MacDonald2,935Small Business circle 2 of 2Hello small business peeps! I'm a small biz person and naturally I want to connect with other small biz owners. I really feel we all have so much to share with each other and to learn from one another as we navigate this world called Google+ that provides us with so many great tools and resources to support our small biz efforts. I also think it's a good thing to support each other, and lift each other up as we work towards our goals. So I've been collecting small biz people and shared small biz & entrepreneurs circles, because those are the people I most want in my own circles, to follow, to connect with, and to support. I have 700+ small bizzes in my circle, so I've split it into two circles to share with you. This is #2 of the 2. Let's hear it for small business!Btw, speaking of supporting small bizzes, I host a TGIF Biz Networking Hangout every Friday at 4pm pst, now a Hangout on Air. It is a chance to give yourself and your biz a little promo, and I feature special guests who are small biz owners and who have all kinds of good advice and info to share with other small biz owners. Please check my profile for more info or to watch last Friday's episode, where we talked about QR codes and great ideas for how to use them, and also talked about the value of keeping content fresh on your blogs and web sites, and when and why to blog, or not to blog. #smallbusiness #entrepreneur #sharedcircles +CircleCount +Shared Circles Shared a Circle with You +Shared a Circle with you2012-05-28 18:24:39330211318CC G+
Alex Grossman22,176For another Follow Friday Circle for today, here is my Music Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about and listen to music. All kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. Unlike other circles, not all shares will be public since some people don't want to see playlists or song shares in their stream. So, articles and discussions of artists, software, the industry, etc will be public and playlists from Spotify or songs may (but not always) be shared to Circles only. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, exchanging comments back and forth, sharing music, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. You only need to agree that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful manner.For a playlist I shared today, go to:https://plus.google.com/102001774674190160714/posts/NTAp6CzC438 #followfriday #followfridaycircle #music #playlist2012-05-25 15:03:2282229CC G+

Many species of animals can recognize each other's voices. For example, if a horse sees another horse it knows walk by, and then hears that horse's whinny, it won't be surprised, but if it then hears a different horse, it will look up and try to figure out what's going on. Many species go beyond this and have "signature contact calls" -- specific patterns of sound they make to identify themselves, the equivalent of saying "I'm Bob! I'm Bob!" And their species-mates can recognize that as their tag.

This new study, by Cornell's Karl Berg, has found that the green-rumped parrotlet goes much farther than this. Not only do individual parrots have these calls, but they can use each other's call signs to identify each other: not merely the equivalent of saying "I'm Bob! I'm Bob!" but saying "Hey Ted! Come here!" And on top... more »

I have to say that this is one of the more useful "kids react" videos -- because the kids actually give pretty good UX feedback. You can see which things are and aren't obvious for them to operate, which things do and don't make sense to them. (And some of them give explicit feedback which is actually more useful than I've heard from many adults) 

There's a lot to be said for handing your device to a kid and seeing what they do with it.

More interesting science for your day: the "Saltmen" were not deliberately mummified, but were rather workers in a salt mine in Iran, dried and preserved by the climate. The oldest dates to around 323BCE (just before Alexander the Great) and the newest to around 460CE. The dry and salty conditions preserved their bodies startlingly well, and with them, a wealth of detail about their daily lives. 

During the Achaemenid period -- the years before Alexander the Great -- this mine was operated seasonally, with no local settlement. Miners would instead come, heavily provisioned, mine and then leave. In the Sassanid era (the great empire which rose to become Rome's biggest challenger to the East, which ultimately fell to the Islamic caliphates) supplies were grown and acquired locally, even though nobody lived in the area. Miners apparently could stop and get provisions for the arduous... more »

Studying morality in infants is sticky. Morality is hard to define, even among adults. Still, researchers in this field have focused on a few key traits, including helpfulness, fairness and kindness. These "prosocial behaviors," research indicates, may be detectable in babies just a few months old.

My Sunday posting deals with the stuff that makes the world go around. Money and how it flows.  It starts a bit off-angle, by discussing whether the petro-princes who rule Saudi Arabia might at last be willing to use their vast wealth to make the Sunni regains of the Middle East more secure and prosperous, specifically by investing in peace… then I go on to discuss a familiar topic…

…the flow of secret wealth funds, which a recent paper reveals to be so huge that most of the debt crisis in America and Europe would vanish, almost overnight, if all the money involved made it back into the transparent world of honest capitalism.  

In a recent novel or two, I portrayed where this might head -- either to a world radicalization leading to real war and revolution… or else to reform that would benefit us all. Except the world's most outrageous cheaters.

"Health workers responding to an Ebola outbreak in Guinea had no maps to go on, so they turned to the internet for help

WHEN doctors working for Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) arrived in the West African nation of Guinea last month to combat an outbreak of the deadly Ebola haemorrhagic fever, they found themselves working in an information vacuum.

Accurate maps are crucial to pinpointing the source of the Ebola virus and preventing it from spreading. But the only maps in Guinea were topographic charts – useless for understanding population distribution. Desperate for information, they enlisted an online army to help.

MSF asked a digital mapping organisation called Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) to build them a map of Guéckédou, a city of around 250,000 people in southern Guinea, where the outbreak is concentrated.

As of 31 March, online maps ofGuéck... more »

Play It Again, Sam

A recurrent nova is a stellar nova that occurs from the same star more than once.  You’re probably more familiar with a supernova, where a star is ripped apart in a cataclysmic explosion.   Novas occur when a white dwarf orbits with another star and captures some of the star’s outer material. This material forms an accretion disk around the white dwarf, which gradually falls to its surface.  When material accumulates on the surface of the white dwarf, it can trigger a nuclear explosion that causes it to brighten similar to a supernova, but not nearly as intense.  Since the explosion doesn’t destroy the star, it is possible for a nova to occur again after more material has accumulated.

The most famous recurrent nova is RS Ophiuchi, which becomes a nova about every 20 years.  Other recurrent nova occur at different rates.  Recurrent nova caused bymore massiv... more »

❝ In the recent history of American music, there’s no figure parallel to Lehrer in his effortless ascent to fame, his trajectory into the heart of the culture — and then his quiet, amiable, inexplicable departure. During his golden decade, he appeared on The Tonight Show twice, drew a denunciation in Time magazine, and by the early 1960s, seemed poised for a lasting place on an American cultural scene that itself was undergoing a radical upheaval.

Monkey Planet

The Beeb has a wonderful new series featuring Professor George McGavin from the University of Oxford. Titled Monkey Planet, it describes the various species of primates that inhabit our planet. The footage is amazing, which isn't a surprise given it's a BBC Nature documentary. I think my favourite part so far was this behind-the-scenes clip of Bonobos. They are so adorably playful and boisterous!

If you have access to the BBC iPlayer (or ahem, a handy plugin that allows you to view UK content) this series is definitely worth checking out: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01r52gr

When does $100 equal $600?

I sold my 18 year-old Subaru SVX to the guy at the garage. He's going to fix it up for his son. From my standpoint, he paid me $600 for it. From his standpoint, he paid $100. Labor costs are funny that way. I owed him for the labor he did tracking down its electrical problems. On the other hand, he would have had to do that work anyway for his son.

As far as I'm concerned, the good news is that it's not going to a junk heap…assuming his son drives it carefully!

I've got a Subaru Forester on order. Not nearly as pretty or fast, but a lot more useful when I want to take four people and a dog down to Cape Cod and across six miles of beach.

Farewell SVX. Only 14,000 sold over four years, and nobody has ever built anything like it since. It was a fun 18 years.

Good Morning Google+  your daily story about art: 04.09
Today's artist, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, who died on April 9th in 1882, is a perfect counterpoint to yesterday's Picasso. While Picasso was a vibrant, lusty and energetic, larger than life personality, Rossetti was the embodiment of the typical neurotic, Victorian artist (both as poet and painter).

But there are also similarities, both were crucial to the founding of a new style, Picasso to Cubism and Rossetti to the Pre-Raphaelites (he was one of the three founding members of the Brotherhood).  Each produced works that simply cannot be confused with anyone else's, and both had numerous and complicated relationships with women.

This painting by Rossetti, the Beata Beatrix is his homage to his wife, Elizabeth Siddal, who was probably one of, if not the first 'superstar' models.  She was&#... more »

Star Dates

Determining the age of a star poses a bit of a challenge for astronomers. After all, stars exist over a timescale of billions of years, and they are light years away.  We can’t use radiometric dating like we do for rocks and other objects on Earth.  So just how do we determine the age of a star? It turns out that there are several ways, and it’s getting easier to do.

One of the ways is to compare a star’s mass with its brightness (absolute magnitude).  We can determine the mass of a star if it is part of a binary system, and if we have a good measure of its distance (say, through its parallax) then we can observe its apparent magnitude and use its distance to determine its absolute magnitude.  The way we determine its age is by recognizing that main sequence stars grow hotter and brighter over time.  Stars produce light and heat through nuclear fusion intheir core... more »

When Ray Massia Hewitt (our then BPP minister of education) and I went to the Scandinavian countries (Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland) in January of 1969 little did I realize that I was being set up by the FBI-CIA COINTELPRO operations to go into exile. In Fact at that late 1968-69 time we did not know nor use the term “COINTELPRO” (COunter INTELligence PROgram) in reference to the FBI-fascist Nixon lead government. There had been a protest we organized in front of the federal buildings in San Francisco about freeing Huey and also protesting the fact that the passport office was denying me, Bobby Seale, a passport to travel to Scandinavia. That is what the several hundred people protest gathering that we organized in front of the federal building location in San Francisco was about.

Taking the Keyboard Away
There’s a nasty thing that happens sometimes in group projects that contain a mix of boys and girls, where boys–who are trained from a young age to speak up–tend to put their hands into the mix early on, while the girls who have been trained to keep their voices small and polite and to always make space for others before claiming room for themselves tend to fall to the outer margins of a project.  Women in technology or gaming have a term for this; it’s called “taking the keyboard away,” and it’s pervasive[1].  It’s shockingly common for us to physically pry the tools needed to perform some project directly out of the hands of girls and women.  It will happen at the flimsiest of provocations: a single question about how to proceed is usually sufficient for someone to take the tool away from a woman or girl and do it for them.

Supporting transgender healthcare.

❝ Yet despite clear medical necessity, the majority of U.S. health insurance policies specifically exclude important healthcare for transgender people. Transgender-based exclusions are often written broadly and apply to both transition-related care, such as hormones, surgery, and mental-health care, as well as gender-specific care such as cancer screenings and reproductive healthcare.[1]
These services—mental healthcare, cancer screenings, hormone therapy, surgical procedures—are covered for cisgender (non-transgender) people. In addition, claims for basic care such as a cold or a broken bone can often be denied when carriers learn that a patient is transgender.[2]
Discrimination and harassment are also large barriers to care for transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. ❞
