Google Science Fair3,089,559*Come Hangout With Scientists from the American Museum of Natural History!* You'll get a fascinating glimpse into a process that fundamentally changed the trajectory of life on Earth. Dr. Eunsoo Kim and colleagues have shown the first definitive proof of what is thought to be a critical step in the evolution of photosynthesis, or the conversion of light into food, in algae and land plants. Photosynthetic plants, in turn, were responsible for raising the levels of oxygen in Earth’s atmosphere and paving the way for the rise of animals. Green algae belong to a group of organisms known as eukyarotes — a group that includes plants, animals, and fungi — which first appeared more than 1 billion years ago. Dr. Kim was particularly interested in the process by which early eukaryotes became photosynthetic: by engulfing free-living, photosynthetic microorganisms known as cyanobacteria but not digesting them. Eventually, the acquired cyanobacteria evolved into chloroplast, the specialized cell structure that harnesses the power of the Sun to carry out photosynthesis in green algae and land plants. Using feeding and staining experiments and a transmission electron microscope, Dr. Kim and colleagues were able to capture stunning images showing Cymbomonas, a basic green alga that resembles early ancestors, consuming bacteria. Join this Hangout On Air with Dr. Kim and Dr. Rob DeSalle at the American Museum of Natural History and learn about the Museum’s cutting-edge microscopy lab and its microbial collection. You'll find out how photosynthesis, a key part of the chain of life, may have developed on our planet. Dr. Kim is an assistant curator in the Division of Invertebrate Zoology at the American Museum of Natural History and an assistant professor at the Museum’s Richard Gilder Graduate School. Her lab uses a broad range of experimental approaches including fluorescence and electron microscopy, environmental DNA sequencing, and next-generation sequencing. Dr. Rob DeSalle is a curator in the Division of Invertebrate Zoology at the American Museum of Natural History and a professor at the Museum’s Richard Gilder Graduate School. Dr. DeSalle works in molecular systematics, microbial evolution, and genomics. His current research concerns the development of bioinformatic tools to handle large-scale genomics problems using phylogenetic systematic approaches. Post your questions for Dr. Kim and Dr. DeSalle below, and come Hangout On Air at the American Museum of Natural History!

If you have a child who wants to participate - please either +1 this post or reshare it or leave a comment. He'll get you invited to the hangout and you can supervise your kids during the event. Please note that NO adults will be allowed in the hangout to participate, just supervise as needed or perhaps chaperone would be a better term.  The idea is to provide a safe and fun environment for the kids to hangout.Hangout for 7-11 yr olds2013-01-24 01:00:005

Mike Downes38,325Back in the day, I was a student in teacher training. I had a vacation job as a conference assistant. Equipped with a radio, I was known as *Rootes 35*. Far _too often_, the place to find us was *Meeting Room One*. It was code for *The Airport Lounge* .. which is on the first floor of this building. So, here we are twenty years later with Hangouts .. feel like sitting around and doing nothing, but chat and hatch plans, then you'll find me here .. For the eager beavers, it won't take you long to track this place down from the photo. It's still there today, much the same but totally different .. For an extra point, you can tell me _why_ it has this name .. In the last 15 months of Google+, I've met a ton of great people in Hangouts .. I want to see them again and find out what they are doing.. I will send out the invites, when the names pop out .. So, pull up a chair and see who's about .. for there's _always_ someone in The Airport Lounge ..The Airport Lounge with Mike Downes, Rootes 35 is at Meeting Room One2012-10-25 21:30:0011

Mick Fealty14,226This Friday we're giving Education a first glance under our digital microscope. New markets for third level institutions are expanding rapidly and increasingly becoming global..  New forms of teaching such as MOOC’s (massive open online courses) are specifically designed to expand the intellectual footprint of some of the leading US educational institutes.  In addition new digital formats (not least our own @101560853443212199687 are creating new and cost effective ways communicating both internally and externally.   As @116024884086268367178  notes the future is not only arriving quicker than ever, it is comeing complete with the capacity to scale up quickly (if not always smoothly):  http://url.ie/ftos Please, please DO reshare with those you think will be interested either in taking part in the discussion or to watch the show...

Mick Fealty14,226Many of the most visible people in the tech and many different social worlds are men. But there is a plethora of talented women working in technology. We want to hear their stories.  So far we've done sessions on G+, Value and/or profit in digital journalism, social innovation, and then last week, Tourism in a digital age.  This week it is Women In Technology ( #womenintech ) *Format* - We kick off with a keynote interviewee for 5-10 mins, with other panelists then chipping in questions or responses. Volunteers/suggestions welcome. - We'll have a set of questions generated throughout the week via Google Moderator. This helps develop a strong a priori focus to each programme. - So long as it does not breach copyright (rules are tight for this format) we can also show short videos and screenshare links to topical stories. So we're looking for a mix of 'show and tell' and oversight of the issues facing women in technology (including science). Even if you cannot make it next Friday, we'd be very grateful for any help or suggestions for speakers you can give us. *Note*: we normally run these lunchtime sessions as lunch on Ireland/UK time, but we're running it a bit later to coincide more with a decent US breakfast time.#DigitalLunch: Women In Technology...2012-08-24 15:00:008  
Mick Fealty14,226This week we have guests from around the globe at our virtual lunch table to talk about tourism in this ever renewing digital age. Are there new opportunities and audiences for countries, towns, cities and regions to reach out? This week for the first time we're asking you to get involved in helping us direct the content of the programme itself. +Mike Downes has kindly set up a special (ie, beta) Google Moderator page here: https://www.google.com/moderator/#33/e=20306a&t=20306a.40. Here you can post the questions you would like the panel to face, and/or vote on others you'd like to see put. This excites me for three reasons: - one, we can launch well enough in advance so we have time to pull in plenty of  good questions (some left field no doubt) for the panel to really chew on; - two, once the #Hangoutonair  goes live you as readers will be able to see almost exactly what we are reading from you on the inside...  - so that, three, you can keep on adding and voting questions the whole way through the #HangoutOnAir . In addition please feel free to leave us your suggested articles, video links on this week's topic in the comments below... DigitalLunch: Tourism, a new opportunity or just digital hype?2012-08-17 14:00:006

He started sharing pictures of his dishes on Google+ way back when... When he was asked to cook on Hangouts he decided to teach instead and the *Learning How to Cook Caribbean with Larry Fournillier* cook show was born. Google loved what he did and added him to their Hangout commercial and the SUL, but that's not really what's important to Larry. The fact that his show inspires others not only to cook Caribbean but also to paint (like @107771181372242547518 who created the theme picture of this event - Splash of Flavor Body Paint http://youtu.be/eqp9FPiUJZk). Hangouts changed Larry's life, gave him purpose and meaning, and it even inspired him to create *a woman only social site*. *HOW DID HE DO IT?* Come meet one of the most easy-going and friendly SUL guy face to face and learn how it's all about *the people you meet* and your *relationship* with them.Finding Your Life Purpose Through Hangouts2012-08-09 18:00:0057

I'm not really sure about the your photos have helped people 7,500,000 times but I will admit to having made a slight difference to a few small communities.  What I would question, is the motivation for being a local guide. We all started with a Review - I have 278. Compare that will 464 Photos and you see what's easier for me. So why do you do it, be a local guide that is?

When you're out and about, keep a lookout for wild animals - in this case a herd of fifty five wild fallow deer. In my view, a local guide should report wildlife, but be careful as we don't want too many people taking a look and scaring them off, that's the dilemma..

On 13 Dec 15, I made one simple pushpin move to the correct location. Four months later, I have two emails saying Published. There have been 73 edits at mapmaker https://goo.gl/o8Kdhs .. For something I consider pretty simple is not so it seems ..

in theory, is this not a use of realtime intelligence about a place and there part of Local Guides .. there is a brilliant line on the webcam page that reads, 'The webcam is a free service offered by the Gatlinburg Space Needle, the number one entertainment venue in Gatlinburg. Of course, the view is better in person...'

Gatlinburg Space Needle a fascinating look into realtime webcams This video starts with google earth zoomed out, finds the Space Needle in Gatlinburg, TN and looks for a webcam, then take control and  finds two people walking a dog at 8am on a Tuesday ..

I'm not really sure about the your photos have helped people 7,500,000 times but I will admit to having made a slight difference to a few small communities.  What I would question, is the motivation for being a local guide. We all started with a Review - I have 278. Compare that will 464 Photos and you see what's easier for me. So why do you do it, be a local guide that is?

How to use OBS Studio 0.14.1 Alt Cropping feature These ideas are my experience only, not those of the OBS team - and therefore may change with more use

Added alt-cropping (cropping via the alt-key). This type of crop only affects the specific scene item and does not affect all instances of a source. You can also change the specific crop number values in the source transform dialog.

Google are rolling out a few updates to tools like Keep and google.com/save recently .. What should be IN CAPS is not the tool itself by about knowing yourself as a human being and knowing your habits. Then and only then allowing yourself to touch any tech and therefore these tools.

Now we are opening up to not only 'our own' information, but each other, finding what you need, saving it and accessing it later - is a major problem. One that in all brutalness has no solid answer.

Now we are opening up to not only 'our own' information, but each other, finding what you need, saving it and accessing it later - is a major problem. One that in all brutalness has no solid answer. 

To test how you are getting on, try when you go to bad at night, and you are laying there waiting for sleep - try explaining all the days and years flashing images that skip through your brain. This is probably for me, the purest and most organic form of a human filing cabinet we can get close to. 
  My tip, to find time in the day to 'train your brain' to organise itself - use some memory techniques or mnemonics. As a demo, think of a word like fish or pony or dog ... and I bet if you are relaxed and thoughtful -- all images will flash by in your head from your childhood to the present day, all in one go ... Keep and suchlike are trying to mimic that I guess..   ___

Teachers will get why the whiteboard is to the right and not centred, right handed teachers will agree, while left handed will not. Even on designing a graphic, just instinct to write on the board and step back and to the left so the students can see the board while the teacher keeps talking, thus not getting in the way of what's written ..

Sometimes letting a product like Picasa drift into the google sunset only makes it more chic and uber classy cool. I believe it's a mistake - some things are used for an infinite about of time, and trusted - not as they are hip, but as they work and work well ..
