Mike Elgan2,022,742Is my League the best Circle on Google+?Sorry to brag, but I think it is. Why? Because The League of Extraordinary Circle Friends is not filled with social media superstars on the official Suggested Users List, but a very carefully curated group of super awesome people. It's also a very carefully balanced group, internally -- not too much tech or photography, and plenty of posts about science, food, journalism, travel and life in general (not to mention beer and wine!). If you agree, you can make the G+ world a better place by: 1. Sharing this post2. Adding this circle3. Adding this circle to your own shared circles and promoting your own circles!2012-12-19 12:04:1432181041

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.

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 04:41:0110025017
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 19:27:2027537

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 23:48:1615102
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 18:46:0375634765

Sea creatures will get bigger and bigger—if we don’t eat them first

When life on Earth began around 3.6 billion years ago, all organisms were small. Indeed, it took some 2.5 billion years to evolve any organism that grows larger than a single cell.

Since then, things have accelerated a bit and—along with the great diversification of body forms—animals have tended to get bigger. Indeed, the largest animal ever to live, the blue whale, is still very much with us, and has been swimming the world’s oceans for only a couple of million years—a mere blink of the eye in the long, long history of life in the sea.

F.C.C. Approves Net Neutrality Rules, Classifying Broadband Internet Service as a Utility

The Federal Communications Commission voted on Thursday to regulate broadband Internet service as a public utility, a milestone in regulating high-speed Internet service into American homes.

Tom Wheeler, the commission chairman, said the F.C.C. was using “all the tools in our toolbox to protect innovators and consumers” and preserve the Internet’s role as a “core of free expression and democratic principles.”

The F.C.C. is taking this big regulatory step by reclassifying high-speed Internet service as a telecommunications service, instead of an information service, under Title II of the Telecommunications Act. The Title II classification comes from the phone company era, treating service as a public utility.

how many hours do you sleep?

Sleep a lot? You might have a heightened risk of stroke, study says

People who slept more than 8 hours a night were 46% more likely than average sleepers to suffer a stroke

Older adults who said they slept more than eight hours were 46% more likely to suffer strokes in the next decade than adults who slept for six to eight hours, according to an analysis published Wednesday in the journal Neurology. Even worse, the stroke risk for people who went from sleeping less than six hours to sleeping more than eight hours was nearly four times greater than for people who consistently got six to eight hours of ZZZZs.

The Eiffel Tower is now the loveliest electrical generator in the world

The most famous architectural structure in the world is now the world’s most famous icon to environmental sustainability.

The Eiffel Tower—one part broadcasting tower, two parts tourist destination—has joined the green energy movement with two wind turbines retrofitted on its second level. Urban Green Energy (UGE), a New-York-based renewable energy design firm, is responsible for the twin turbines, which can be seen, but not heard.

Food shopping when you're hungry is not a smart move.

Why Shopping on an Empty Stomach Is a Bad Idea

"A growling stomach doesn't increase the appeal of these inedible items; rather, it appears to activate a need to acquire something, anything."

A research team led by Alison Jing Xu of the University of Minnesota reports that hunger “is likely to activate general concepts and behavioral knowledge associated with acquisition,” making one more likely to purchase even non-food products.

Hungry shoppers spent more money, and bought more (non-food) products, than less-hungry ones. This remained true after taking into account such factors as their mood and how much time they had spent in the store.

//Ants

fascinating piece.

The endless war between slave and master…ants

Ants have a reputation of being industrious hard-working animals, sacrificing their own benefit for the good of the colony. They live to serve their queen and take care of all essential tasks including brood care, gathering food and maintaining the nest.

However, not all ant species live up to their reputation. A handful of ant species have figured out a way to outsource all these essential tasks—by exploiting their weaker cousins.

World's diet worsening with globalization, major study finds: TRFN

"Young people are growing up with much worse diets than their parents or grandparents." 

The "globalization" of western diets - where a small group of food and agriculture companies have disproportionate power to decide what is produced - is partially causing the shift to unhealthy eating.

How to spend $300,000 on dinner

It may be hard to believe that a dinner bill could reach $300,000, even at a particularly pricey restaurant. But it's actually not hard to do with a party of 30 people ordering bottles of wine with five-figure price tags.

Vice Media Inc. CEO Shane Smith spent $300,000 for dinner in Las Vegas last month, according to a source at Vice. Smith paid the tab for his group -- a mix of Vice executives, staff members and friends -- at Prime Streakhouse at the Bellagio Hotel during the Consumer Electronics Show in January. The dinner reportedly flowed with bottles of wine that cost upwards of $20,000 a pop.

great piece.

Study: Going vegetarian can cut your food carbon footprint in half

If you're looking for ways to reduce your carbon footprint, try eating less meat. That's one upshot of a big recent study on diets in the United Kingdom.

Food production is responsible for about 25 percent of the greenhouse-gas emissions heating up the planet. And scientists have long known that meat has a bigger climate footprint than fruits and vegetables do — partly because meat takes more energy to produce, but also because cows tend to burp up a lot of methane. (Cows, in turn, have a larger impact than pigs or chickens.)

//Raw milk

Why Some States Want To Legalize Raw Milk Sales

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cautions that unpasteurized milk can cause serious illness, because it's a fertile breeding ground for harmful germs like salmonella and E. coli. But such warnings haven't deterred raw milk enthusiasts.

The federal government banned the sale of raw milk across state lines nearly three decades ago because it poses a threat to public health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Medical Association all strongly advise people not to drink it.

Nutrition Panel: Egg With Coffee Is A-OK, But Skip The Side Of Bacon

A panel of top nutrition experts appointed by the federal government has weighed in with its long-awaited diet advice.

A panel of top nutrition experts appointed by the federal government has weighed in with its long-awaited diet advice.

Their conclusions are that daily cup of joe (or two) may help protect against Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. And an egg a day will not raise the risk of heart disease in healthy people. Hold the sugary muffin, though.___

Sea creatures will get bigger and bigger—if we don’t eat them first

When life on Earth began around 3.6 billion years ago, all organisms were small. Indeed, it took some 2.5 billion years to evolve any organism that grows larger than a single cell.

Since then, things have accelerated a bit and—along with the great diversification of body forms—animals have tended to get bigger. Indeed, the largest animal ever to live, the blue whale, is still very much with us, and has been swimming the world’s oceans for only a couple of million years—a mere blink of the eye in the long, long history of life in the sea.

Sunlight continues to damage skin hours after exposure

Sunlight continues to damage people's skin and increase the risk of cancer for hours after they leave the beach and head indoors, a study shows.

Scientists at Yale University, in the US, discovered it was the supposedly protective pigment melanin that was causing the damage.

What are the best skills for kids to have these days?

Survey: Americans care more about kids being good communicators than mathematicians

A Pew survey released today asked about 3,000 Americans what skills are most important for children “to get ahead in the world today.” Communication—skills such as listening well, speaking effectively, and being able to articulate ideas—came in ahead of math, science, and even reading. Teamwork, another “soft skill,” also outranked science and is on par with math (there’s a 2.7% margin of error). Most of those surveyed also believe that math and science are also important, of course.

Walmart finally decided to give its workers a raise

Walmart, the world’s largest private employer, said it plans to raise starting pay in the United States to $9 an hour. By February 2016, the company aims to push that up to $10. It’s essentially a self-imposed minimum wage, preempting an attempt to raise the federal minimum wage higher still.

Global progress against obesity "unacceptably slow"

"On one hand, we need to acknowledge that individuals bear some responsibility for their health, and on the other hand recognize that today's food environments exploit people's biological, psychological, social and economic vulnerabilities, making it easier for them to eat unhealthy foods."

According to World Health Organization data, 39 percent of adults worldwide were overweight in 2014, and 13 percent were obese. Some 42 million children under the age of five were overweight or obese in 2013.

The Real Problem With Bread (It's Probably Not Gluten)

One wheat scientist has a compelling theory.

Considering that you can now find gluten-free everything, from Bisquick to bagels, it seems remarkable that our national obsession with the wheat protein that gives bread its elasticity is only about a decade old. Doctors have long known about a relatively rare condition called celiac disease, in which gluten damages the small intestine. 

But in recent years, best-selling books like Wheat Belly and Grain Brain have popularized the notion that gluten is the hidden culprit behind a host of hard-to-diagnose health problems, from indigestion to fatigue. Once you excise bread and other wheat products from your diet, the books claim, you'll be on the path to everything from top mental performance to a svelte figure.

The caloric highs and lows of eating at Chipotle, McDonald’s, Panera, and Taco Bell

"Chipotle is no better or worse than other chains in this regard. And it is possible to craft lighter lunches and dinners from the choices offered."

The most popular combinations of beans, rice, and meat that people order from Chipotle, America’s favorite fast-casual burrito chain, all contain close to 1,000 calories—as the New York Times so helpfully informs us. The implication is that, if you’re anything like the average burrito-lover, your meals at Chipotle are indulgences; they’re too rich in fat, carbs, and sodium to be a regular part of a healthy diet.

Most women have probably experienced being friendly around a man, only to have it be misinterpreted as flirtatiousness. Simple signals of interest in a conversation — smiling, laughing, being interested in a conversation — are all somehow perceived as come-ons. Straight men, research has found, are a lot more likely than straight women to fool themselves into thinking someone is romantically interested in them when they aren’t.

Rethink Your After-Work Routine to Make the Transition Home a Happy One

"Figure out what triggers negative thoughts and feelings at each stage and either eliminate the triggers or develop new routines and rituals to get around them."

It is so easy to arrive home from work in a bad mood, cranky and frustrated.

Our grandfathers’ generation found a solution in a dry martini. Today, it falls to psychology to help us transition happily from work to home. Psychologists call it “boundary work”—devising routines and rituals that create mental space between the day’s frustrations and the evening’s rewards.

//Wood frogs

Frogs That Freeze Solid Come to Life

Different animals use different strategies to survive winter. Some species migrate south, others grow thick coats, and some fatten up or stash food reserves. Many species hibernate or go dormant to get through the cold, lean winter.

Amphibians are hibernators. Some species bury themselves at the bottom of ponds and others burrow into the leaf litter or even underground. Even so, amphibian species are less numerous the further north you go. Most species just can’t tolerate the deep cold and long duration of winters in extreme northern latitudes, even when hibernating.

Wood frogs (Rana sylvatica) are an exception. They are the only North American amphibian species whose range extends into the Arctic Circle. They can do this because they have the ability to survive being frozen solid.

Focusing on fiber may work for weight loss

Increased fiber intake may be a reasonable alternative for persons with difficulty adhering to more complicated diet regimens.

“However, we ask not to rely on fiber supplements or any one food to increase daily fiber, but rather to obtain fiber from a variety of foods in their diet as suited to individual tastes and preferences.”

The American Heart Association Eating Plan recommends that adults consume 25 to 30 grams of fiber daily from foods, such as vegetables, legumes or whole grains, although the average American only eats about 15 grams per day.

In a commentary published Thursday in the journal Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, four weight-loss specialists set out to correct what they view as the widespread misimpression that people who have become and stayed obese for more than a couple of years can, by diet and exercise alone, return to a normal, healthy weight and stay that way.

These plant chemicals are not a weight-loss miracle, cautions Shay. "We didn't find, and we didn't expect to, that these compounds would improve body weight," he said. But by boosting the burning of fat, especially in the liver, they may improve liver function in overweight people.

Watch how the measles outbreak spreads when kids get vaccinated – and when they don't

Just how infectious is measles? The virus is highly airborne; it can stay on surfaces for up to two hours; and infectivity begins four days before a rash, so you can feel healthy but spread the disease. Measles is so contagious that “if one person has it, 90% of the people close to them who are not immune” – we’ll call them susceptibles – “will also become infected.”

Immunology of the Lung

Our lungs bring in vital oxygen and expel carbon dioxide but they are also usually the first site of pathogen exposure. To counter this impending threat, the lungs have their own large and complex immune system. This filters the air we breathe, repulses invaders and repairs injury. Sometimes these powerful immune responses overreact or are misdirected causing diseases such as asthma. This animation introduces the cells and immunological processes underlying the initiation and pathogenesis of asthma.
