Chad Haney7,185Relevance on G+, Two Birds, One PostOK so here's my #AZlist or #AZfaves thingy. I decided not to annoy people with the notifications. They are probably in the shared circle below anyway. In case you don't know, the list is from typing + and a letter. You are supposed to select the first name that Google suggests. I didn't allow duplicates so in some cases, it wasn't the first person Google suggested "by relevance to me".A: Kawthar AL ABDALLA B: Buddhini Samarasinghe C: Kimberly Chapman D: Deeksha Tare E: Mike Elgan F: Feisal Kamil G: Gnotic Pasta H: Aida Hazlan I: irish d J: Jonathan Langdale K: Guy Kawasaki L: Lindsay Leonidas M: Mahesh Sreekandath N: Jerry Nguyen O: Mary Owens P: Peter LindelaufQ: Liz Quilty R: Rajini Rao S: Allison Sekuler T: Tom Lee U: Frances Uku V: Branimir Vasilic W: Christian WietholtX: Xavier Brinon Y: Annie Yim Z: mary ZemanThe shared circle is another test of relevancy. You also have probably seen these going around. You sort your circles by "Relevance" and make a circle out of the top 99. Again, I did a little filtering. I removed people that are hardly on G+ but are in my email contacts. There were a couple of bizarre ones near the bottom that also got the ax, sorry. If you aren't in here, don't feel bad. Blame Google. #circleshare   #sharedcircles2012-10-06 04:41:0110025017CC G+
Jeremy Kolb1,867Google+ Starter CircleAre you new to Google+? Well here is a circle built specifically for you to help you get started. To get the most out of Google+, you need to do two things: find great content, and share great content. This circle will help you do both.Side note: if you are just starting out, keep in mind that small circles are the best. it's just way easier to keep them clean.To help you find good stuff I have included some of my favorite pages and people here that keep the entertaining and interesting content flowing. Several of them are also connectors, they share circles about particular interests you may have (Photography, Doctor Who Fans, Technology, etc...).Those connectors will also enable you to better share good content as they often build circles and will add you to them when you ask. *The more people you have in your circles, the more fun it is to share the awsome stuff you find.* Hope you enjoy,  #newtogoogleplus    #googleplustips   #sharedcircles   #circleshare #circlesharing   #circle   #circles   #amazingpeople   #circleoftheday   #topcircles   #share   #sharingiscaring   #sharedcircleoftheday   #publiccircles   #publiccirclesproject   #publicsharedcircles  2012-09-27 19:27:2027537CC G+

Jeremy Kolb1,030Google+ Starter KitAre you new to Google+? Well here is a circle built specifically for you to help you get started. To get the most out of Google+, you need to be able to do two things well: find good content and share good content. To help you find good stuff I have included some of my favorite pages and people here that keep the entertaining and interesting content flowing. Several of them are also connectors, they share circles about particular interests you may have (Photography, Doctor Who Fans, Technology, etc...).Those connectors will also enable you to better share good content as they often build circles and will add you to them when you ask. The more people you have in your circles, the more fun it is to share the awsome stuff you find. Hope you enjoy,  #newgoogleplus   #googleplustips   #sharedcircles   #circleshare #circlesharing   #circle   #circles   #amazingpeople   #circleoftheday   #topcircles   #share   #sharingiscaring   #sharedcircleoftheday   #publiccircles   #publiccirclesproject   #publicsharedcircles  +Full Circle +Public Circles +Best Shared Circle +Shared Pages Circles +Shared Circles on G+ +SharedCircles +Circle-Back +Sharing is Caring on G+  2012-07-27 18:02:3721046CC G+

Danial Hallock (Kysimir)0No Name NeededI wanted to add another user to this circle, so I decided to continue modelling my "league" after that of +Mike Elgan and reshare the circle with every addition.  I also have a habit of notifying people whenever I share a circle that has them in it, but if people would rather I not do that, let me know!  :)I added +Sarah Rios.  While she has an unhealthy and unjustified addiction to all things #loki , she makes up for it with some pretty delicious #foodporn  that pops up on her stream on an almost daily basis. When she isn't fawning over Loki or delicious food stuffs, she's usually posting some  #geekhumor  and nerdy content. As an active engager on even the busiest of threads, and a good plusser she's someone worth following.Check her, and the rest of the no-namers out!  Previous share(s):https://plus.google.com/115240799014773651633/posts/YTdTnnGHHsV #circleshare   #nonameneeded  2012-06-15 23:48:1615102CC G+
Terrence Lui22,443Who You Gonna Call?Do you have a problem?  Do you wonder where you are going to go to get help?  If so, this is this is the circle for you.  These are the experts.  They are the ones we go to when we need help. Not only do they know what they are talking about but they will all go out of their way to make sure you get what you need.  Can't get much better than that.  This is the first shared circle I have created.  Heck it is the first shared circle I am even sharing.  I created this circle, with the help of all of you (http://bit.ly/KYlY20), because I think experts are crucial to great community.  Everyone who was mentioned is great.  I went through everyone of the profiles, it took me almost 3 hours, and found some awesome people.   But because I wanted to keep the circle relatively small I curated the list to my own standards.So here it is, a circle of Experts you can find on Google+.  Everyone of them is an expert in some way and will be great engaging with you if you ever need help in their field of expertise.  The list of experts is diverse.  We have the more popular subjects covered like tech, photography and social media.  We also have a strong group of creative people in art, writing, and movies.  And then we have niche interest like running and physics.  So add this circle it if you feel inclined.  I give you my personal guarantee that you will find someone of interest in there or your money back.  Note:  If you were notified of this post you are in the circle.  2012-06-14 18:46:0375634765CC G+

Formerly a circle in which I shared folks who like smart folks, it's now a circle comprising people who post things that excite and arouse me for one reason or another. I've previously explained the root source for the prefix sapio ; here it is again, but from wikipedia this time.The word sapience is derived from the Latin sapientia, meaning "wisdom".[23] Related to this word is the Latin verb sapere, meaning "to taste, to be wise, to know"; the present participle of sapere forms part of Homo sapiens, the Latin binomial nomenclature created by Carolus Linnaeus to describe the human species. Linnaeus had originally given humans the species name of diurnus, meaning man of the day... he later decided that the dominating feature of humans was wisdom, hence application of the name sapiens. His chosen biological name was intended to emphasize man's uniqueness and separation from the rest of the animal kingdom..+Shared Circles on G+ +Sapiosexual +Public Circles +The Best Circles on Google+2012-03-28 22:10:47122341323CC G+

Meet the surprisingly avant-garde architects designing George Lucas’ Chicago museum

George Lucas gave the first inkling today of what his controversial museum in Chicago might look like when it opens in 2018. 

Ma Yasong, of the Beijing-based MAD Architects, will design the main building of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art. Jeanne Gang, who runs local firm Studio Gang, will handle the landscape design and a pedestrian bridge.

The choices immediately raised eyebrows in architecture circles. The Star Wars director’s art collection is a kitschy assemblage of Americana and white-bread commercial work; the original proposal for the museum, in San Francisco’s Presidio, reflected that conservatism in its neoclassical form. But Ma—a rising star in China and, increasingly, the West—favors swelling, futuristic towers that practically drip with the algorithms used todesign the... more »

Is technology making the world indecipherable?

Human ingenuity has created a world that the mind cannot master. Have we finally reached our limits?

For centuries, humans have been creating ever-more complicated systems, from the machines we live with to the informational systems and laws that keep our global civilisation stitched together. Technology continues its fantastic pace of accelerating complexity — offering efficiencies and benefits that previous generations could not have imagined — but with this increasing sophistication and interconnectedness come complicated and messy effects that we can’t always anticipate.

Is drinking extra water good for your skin?

If you yearn for smooth skin that glows with youth, the chances are that at some point you will have heard the exhortation to drink lots of water in order to flush out those evil toxins and keep your skin healthy.

"So the problem is a general lack of evidence that drinking more water makes any difference to your skin. We can’t say it definitely doesn’t work, but there’s no evidence that it does. Which leaves the question of how much water you should drink. Since it depends on the weather and what you are doing, then there is a very good internal guideline we all have that can help. And that’s thirst."

//Wine

How to tell the real bottles from the knock-offs

Researchers have found that in blind tastings , “individuals who are unaware of the price do not derive more enjoyment from more expensive wines” — meaning that even people with wine training can’t always taste the difference between table wine and a rare vintage from a château in France.

If you’re buying a bottle on the cheap (Two Buck Chuck, anyone?) you probably don’t need to worry that you’ll be peddled a fake. Determining the authenticity and source of a wine is a bigger headache for collectors who buy at auctions, where the bottle in question usually comes from another person’s cellar.

Researchers find new gut virus that exists in over 50% of humans

A new study led by researchers at San Diego State University has found that more than half the world's population is host to a newly described virus, named crAssphage, which infects one of the most common gut bacterial species, Bacteroides. This bacterium is thought to be connected with obesity, diabetes and other gut-related diseases.

These people know what you're going to want to eat before you do

Ideas are brainstormed, prototyped, kitchen tested, debated within dozens of boardrooms, tested in select markets, subjected to refinements and focus groups, prepared for a launch, advertised to the public, and slowly rolled out store by store, state by state, and country by country. The time line from the initial idea for a food to a consumer's first bite can be months in the quickest-moving companies and years for the largest ones, with the whole process costing many millions of dollars.

A survival guide for the global kale crisis

It’s the hipster foodie’s worst nightmare: The recent rise in the popularity of kale in the developed world could be creating a shortage of the leafy green, popular in smoothies, salads, and cooked dishes. According to ABC News in Australia, the Netherlands-based Bejo Seeds, one of the world’s major kale seed suppliers, has run out of every variety of the superfood’s seeds. As a result, farmers in Australia may not be able to meet global demand. This could also cause problems for farmers that have eliminated other crops to make room for the increasingly lucrative green.

A Dietitian Who Won’t Oversell Nutrition to Her Kids

The researchers theorize that when children are told food serves one goal (makes you big and strong), they view it as less effective in serving another goal (good taste and satisfying).

But pointing out benefits of taste or saying nothing at all allows children to eat the food because it’s an enjoyable experience. No doubt these children are young but research shows as children age they increasingly view healthy food as inferior in the taste department.

//Type 2 diabetes

Shift workers at higher risk of diabetes, study finds

Research finds shift work carries 9% higher risk of type 2 diabetes, especially in men and those with rotating shift patterns.

Medics, police officers and firefighters could be at increased risk of developing diabetes, experts have said after research linked shift work to a heightened risk of being diagnosed with the condition.

Compared with normal office hours, working shifts carries a 9% higher risk of developing diabetes, the study found.

Previous research has linked shift work to weight gain and increased appetite – both of which are risk factors for diabetes, the authors said.

The risk appears to be highest among men and those who work rotating shift patterns, according to the study published in the journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

Slow Walking Speed and Memory Complaints Can Predict Dementia

"Even in the absence of a specific cause, we know that most healthy lifestyle factors, such as exercising and eating healthier, have been shown to reduce the rate of cognitive decline." 

A study involving nearly 27,000 older adults on five continents found that nearly 1 in 10 met criteria for pre-dementia based on a simple test that measures how fast people walk and whether they have cognitive complaints. People who tested positive for pre-dementia were twice as likely as others to develop dementia within 12 years. The study, led by scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and Montefiore Medical Center, was published online on July 16, 2014 in Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

//Bats

how fascinating batman!

Revealed: bats use sunsets to reset their magnetic compasses and fly in the dark

“Blind as a bat” goes the saying – but that’s a myth. Small bats have perfectly good eyesight for their size, but they can also call upon “extra senses” which humans can only achieve with technology. These include the famous ability to navigate using echoes of sounds and the ability to track Earth’s magnetic field based on light from sunsets.

Bats use echoes to hunt and navigate around familiar areas. However, studies from the late 1960s have shown that beyond a certain distance (about 10 miles), they need something else to navigate.

Why Seven Hours of Sleep Might Be Better Than Eight

How much sleep do you really need?

Experts generally recommend seven to nine hours a night for healthy adults. Sleep scientists say new guidelines are needed to take into account an abundance of recent research in the field and to reflect that Americans are on average sleeping less than they did in the past.

Several sleep studies have found that seven hours is the optimal amount of sleep—not eight, as was long believed—when it comes to certain cognitive and health markers, although many doctors question that conclusion.

Sprinters, marathon runners, weightlifters and gymnasts – diets for different events

Being an athlete is all about eating pasta morning, noon and night, right? Think again. The type of sport an athlete does will affect the types of foods the competitor should eat. Although there are other important nutrients (such as fluid, vitamins and minerals), the three main ones in your diet (known as macronutrients) are carbohydrates, proteins and fats, and these are the ones that sports nutritionists tend to focus on.

Many Kids Who Are Obese Or Overweight Don't Know It

"Children who don't have a correct perception of their weight don't take steps to lose weight." 

"Other studies have suggested that parents are in the dark about their kids, too, with about half underestimating their obese or overweight child's weight. Sarafrazi says it's key for parents to know the truth."

About 30 percent "misperceived" their weight status (underweight, normal weight, overweight or obese), according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics. (The CDC bases those categories on body mass index, adjusted for gender and age.)

//Organic Food

Is organic food healthier? Many scientists are still skeptical.

Unfortunately, this doesn't prove very much by itself. No one knows if those moderately higher levels of antioxidants actually boost your health. For that to happen, they'd have to be absorbed into your bloodstream and distributed to the right organs — and there just hasn't been much good research showing that. For now, there's little evidence to suggest concrete health benefits.

In the meantime, some experts have suggested that this endless health debate has become a distraction. Marion Nestle of New York University argues that the best reasons to buy organic produce is for the environmental impacts and production values. Any nutritional benefit is a "bonus," if there even is one.

Ocean Waves As You Have Never Seen Them Before

Many of us do. We may be drawn to waves because they connect us with the moon and the tides, or with the magnificent marine creatures small and large who dwell in our seas, or just because it's fun to surf and swim and float along the shore. And so we stand at the ocean's edge, whip out our cellphones or our cameras and tripods, and aim to snap that perfect image.

//Alzheimer's disease

Fish oil supplements may reduce cognitive decline, unless you’re already at risk for Alzheimer’s

New research published in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia shows promise that regularly taking fish oil supplements may in fact reduce cognitive decline, if your genetic makeup doesn’t stand in the way.

The results seem to suggest that regularly taking fish oil before potential cognitive decline kicks in is a good idea. But there’s an important caveat: The positive results were only found in participants without the best-studied genetic risk factor for Alzheimer’s—the APOE ε4 gene. Individuals with the genetic marker were unaffected by the supplement. This could be due in part to their inability to properly metabolize DHA, the essential fatty acid present in fish oil supplements, the authors note.

Let’s Cool It in the Bedroom

Sleep is essential for good health, as we all know. But a new study hints that there may be an easy but unrealized way to augment its virtues: lower the thermostat. Cooler bedrooms could subtly transform a person’s stores of brown fat — what has lately come to be thought of as “good fat” — and consequently alter energy expenditure and metabolic health, even into daylight hours.

//French Fries

What Exactly Is in McDonald’s Famous French Fries?

POTATOES

Mickey D's uses varieties like the Russet Burbank, which have a nice oval shape and just the right balance of starch and sugar. Excess sugar can cause a fry to have brown spots where it's over-caramelized, leaving a burnt taste and deviating from the uniform yellow-arches color. Just in case, the spuds are blanched after slicing, removing surplus sugar.

//Israel-Palestine conflict 

9 questions about the Israel-Palestine conflict you were too embarrassed to ask

Everyone has heard of the Israel-Palestine conflict. Everyone knows it's bad, that it's been going on for a long time, and that there is a lot of hatred on both sides.

But you may find yourself less clear on the hows and the whys of the conflict. Why, for example, is Israel currently bombing the Palestinian territory of Gaza, which is killing dozens of civilians? Why is the militant Palestinian group Hamas firing rockets into civilian neighborhoods in Israel? How did this latest round of violence start in the first place — and why do they hate one another at all?

What follows are the most basic answers to your most basic questions. Giant, neon-lit disclaimer: these issues are complicated and contentious, and this is not anex... more »

Why summer is the hungriest season for some U.S. kids

“So you can imagine, when schools close for the summer and we have eight or so weeks where there are no school meals, that it’s a crucial time to intervene to make sure kids can get the nutrition they need to grow.”

“Summer is a time of great risk for many children in terms of hunger,” said Kevin Concannon, under secretary for food, nutrition and consumer services at the United States Department of Agriculture. “I hear from school teachers and principals that when school starts up again in late August or September, they can almost always tell which kids have had a summer of reliable, healthy eating versus a summer of uncertainty.”

Shoes hurting your feet? When was the last time you had your foot measured to check your shoe size?

"Ballet flats are just as bad as wearing high heels."

Feet Are Getting Bigger, and Many People Wear Shoes That Don't Fit Right

Stilettos top the list of pain-causing styles; the high and often-thin heels place all the weight on the front of the foot. But all kinds of shoes have pain potential, according to a 2014 survey from the American Podiatric Medical Association. About a quarter of people who wear flats, boots or flip-flops reported the shoes made their feet hurt. Two thirds of respondents said they wanted more-comfortable shoes.

There’s A lot of Junk Food at the School Nutrition Conference

"So while the conference highlighted ways to get kids to eat more healthy food, it’s hard to take seriously when Cheetos and pizza are so heavily marketed."

This year's annual conference run by the School Nutrition Association is not without politics

Given the ongoing debate about school nutrition, it shouldn’t be surprising that this year’s convention—which brings together 6,000 school nutrition professionals and industry members—has been mired in politics. As Politico reported: Sam Kass, the Executive Director of Let’s Move! was even turned down when he asked to speak at the conference this year.

White House asked to stay away from school nutrition summit

At stake is the health of millions of kids, an $11 billion school lunch program dominated by big food companies that want to build brand loyalty early and even the legacy of the first lady — who has made combating the childhood obesity epidemic her primary cause.

So while the specifics might look like a food fight, behind the clash are all the big forces that shape major political battles — money, lobbying muscle, big personalities — and an ideological split over the size and role of the federal government, especially when it comes to kids.

Stroke rates and deaths fall in large U.S. study

"There were some exceptions, based on age: Stroke rates did not fall significantly among people under age 65 and death rates did not fall as much among those over 65."

The improvements seen so far can be attributed to a number of factors, they say, including better control of blood pressure and cholesterol, less smoking and better medical care after strokes.

"But on the opposite side, diabetes has increased," and that, along with high obesity rates, could bode ill for the future, Coresh says.

The top ten parasites that could be lurking in your food

Many infections can be thwarted with proper hygiene – washing fruit and vegetables, including “ready-washed” lettuce, cooking meat properly and avoiding contamination from domestic or wild animals. A joint UN/WHO report said better farming and global food trade standards could also prevent parasites entering the food chain.

We Are Our Bacteria

"A recent review of 15 studies involving 163,796 births found that, compared with  babies delivered vaginally, those born by cesarean section were 26 percent more likely to be overweight and 22 percent more likely to be obese as adults."

We may think of ourselves as just human, but we’re really a mass of microorganisms housed in a human shell. Every person alive is host to about 100 trillion bacterial cells. They outnumber human cells 10 to one and account for 99.9 percent of the unique genes in the body.

Ten things you didn’t know about fat

Our understanding of fats – including which ones are actually good for us – is evolving. We know for example that red meat and meat products, cakes and biscuits, which are rich sources of saturated fatty acids, are associated with an increased number of cardiovascular deaths. Conversely, nuts, oily fish and milk products, which are high in saturated fats, are associated with lower risk.

//Apples

An apple a day keeps the doctor away — and leads to better sex

The researchers are quick to point out that while their results are “intriguing,” they should be taken with caution. The study’s small sample size makes it difficult to categorize too broadly, although the positive correlation between apples and better sex they found seems to speak for itself. Possible explanations for the link include the multiple antioxidants and other pharmacologically active substances (like phytoestrogens and polyphenols) present in apples, which have been associated with positive sexual effects before. The fruit shows similar sexual benefits as red wine and chocolate, but with other added health effects as well.

If Germany wins today Microsoft will have perfectly predicted the World Cup’s knockout round

“It’s been a fun computer science experience here and we think a lot about where we can take it. We hope it’s fun for people to see more than just search results, to see more information that they can follow.”

The most accurate predictor of the knockout stages, Microsoft’s predictions, have been perfect for every match of the final stage of the World Cup. Generated using a mathematical model, the predictions have been delivered in its Bing search engine results and through its Cortana virtual assistant on Windows phones.

Microsoft predicted an Argentina-Germany final. And has been predicting a German victory today.
