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

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 18:02:3721046

Michael Pedersen88I've just looked at a few of my friends, and now I see why they think that G+ is a ghost town. Folks, you have to circle some people that post good stuff. Here, this circle was shared by +Terrence Lui a while back, and made my already busy stream actually too busy.Doesn't change how useful it is, or how fun it is. Save the circle, and you're going to find a whole new G+ waiting for you.2012-07-25 04:42:3176304

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

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 22:10:47122341323

New quantum mechanics theory says parallel universes exist, interact

To the average person, quantum mechanics is the convoluted, science fiction-y branch of physics. A radical new theory plays into that, proposing that parallel universes exist and interact with each other ‒ and that scientists may be able to test for them.

What You Need to Know About Language in 23 Maps and Charts

"The limits of my language," the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein once posited, "mean the limits of my world." Explaining everything within the limits of the world is probably too ambitious a goal for a list like this. But here are 23 maps and charts that can hopefully illuminate small aspects of how we manage to communicate with one another.

//Antibacterial soaps

The Ingredient to Avoid in Soap

Today's study found that mice who were exposed to triclosan regularly for six months showed abnormal cell proliferation, liver fibrosis, and inflammatory responses—all of which, the researchers write, "resemble the environment within which human liver cancer forms." The researchers expect that the same triclosan-induced formation of liver tumors "would occur in humans as it occurs in mice."

Using some antibacterial soaps may promote tumor growth, according to a study just published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Sleep's Link To Learning And Memory Traced To Brain Chemistry

"One of the most profound effects of a night of sleep is the improvement in our ability to remember things."

Almost a century after the discovery that sleep helps us remember things, scientists are beginning to understand why.

During sleep, the brain produces chemicals that are important to memory and relives events we want to remember, scientists reported this week at the Society for Neuroscience meeting in Washington D.C.

Country of origin label for meat cuts endangered

The U.S. is running out of options in its effort to tell consumers where fresh cuts of meat originated after a successful challenge to package labeling by Canada and Mexico.

A 2008 farm law requires that packages of steaks, ribs and other cuts of meat identify where the animals were born, raised and slaughtered. A label might say the meat was "born in Canada, raised and slaughtered in the United States" or "born, raised and slaughtered in the United States."

Global Views on Morality

Compare values across 40 countries

The Pew Research Center’s 2013 Global Attitudes survey asked 40,117 respondents in 40 countries what they thought about eight topics often discussed as moral issues: extramarital affairs, gambling, homosexuality, abortion, premarital sex, alcohol consumption, divorce, and the use of contraceptives.1 For each issue, respondents were asked whether this is morally acceptable, morally unacceptable, or not a moral issue. The chart below displays the median responses for each question across the 40 countries.

//Seals

Seals are mysteriously sexually assaulting penguins—and eating them.

"Scientists are mostly baffled. Seals are good at picking out what objects are edible and what aren’t. So they probably didn’t mistake the penguins for quirky-looking female seals."

Another theory is that this bizarre behavior may have been learned. But learned behavior is typically associated with reward or threat, note the scientists. “What would the value of this learned behavior be to the seal?” they ask. “Is it an opportunity for the seal to practice courtship and copulation behavior prior to defending its own harem for the first time in the next breeding season?” Moreover, it’s strange that four adult male fur seals learned this behavior seemingly independently. The attacks took place in 2006, 2008, 2011, and 2012—and only the 2008 and 2012 attacks were inthe same place.... more »

//Obesity epidemic

21 maps and charts that explain the obesity epidemic

There are more than a billion adults who classify as overweight or obese, and the epidemic has hit developing countries, where starvation and malnutrition are still widespread. As researchers learn more about the social and economic impact of obesity, a number of basic unanswered questions remain — such as why obesity rates have soared in the last three decades, and how to turn that trend around.

//Sleep

You're not sleeping as much as you think you are

Many people aren't sleeping nearly as much as they think they are. They may be lying in bed for 7 hours, but are only actually sleeping for 5 or 6. And, not surprisingly, they feel tired the next day.

The science of sleep efficiency is still young. There's no magic number for efficiency that's been proven as linked to terrible health — but it can still be a handy metric for many people to get a sense of what's going on at night. (Ultimately, what really matters is how well-rested and attentive you feel during the day, but that's a complex thing that can't be measured with one number.)

(Ultimately, what really matters is how well-rested and attentive you feel during the day, but that's a complex thing that can't be measured with one number.)___

Smacking is effective in the short run: it stops children pulling their sisters’ hair. But in the long run it has all sorts of bad effects. 

"81% of American parents believe that spanking is sometimes necessary (see table). That is more than in many other rich countries, 20 of which have banned spanking even by parents. In America Republicans spank more than Democrats; southerners more than north-easterners; blacks more than whites; and born-again Christians more than everyone else."

Red meat and cancer: the biological evidence

"In any case, the editors of the journal JAMA Internal Medicine have advocated that “Reducing meat consumption has multiple benefits for the world’s health” (20), a bold statement that future research will tell us more about."

Two weeks ago, we discussed the link between red meat consumption and breast cancer risk. This relationship is particularly interesting, given that younger women and those taking birth control pills were at the highest risk for breast cancer, indicating some kind of interaction between sex hormones and eating red meat.

Two weeks ago, we discussed the link between red meat consumption and breast cancer risk.

What wasn’t so well covered is the actual biological explanation for how red meat may contribute to causing cancer.

Current evidence is from large-scale population studies, which actually cannot tell us much about biological mechanisms. The first way these studies are done is through recruiting people who already have cancer, and matching them to similar people without cancer for comparison. Both groups – the cancer ‘cases’ and the healthy ‘controls’ – are asked about their historical consumption of red meat along other dietary and lifestyle factors that may also affect cancer risk. This is called a ‘case-control’ study. The second strategy involves recruiting a large group of healthy people, assessing their red meat consumption and other risk factors in real time, and following them forward in time to see who gets cancer and who doesn’t. This is called a ‘prospective cohort’ study, and provides more scientific validity than a case-control study because it happens in real time.___

The new “Assassin’s Creed” game is reviving an ancient debate over the French Revolution

The latest “Assassin’s Creed: Unity” video game allows you, the player, to roam freely around an ancient city as part of its usual, incomprehensible plot about assassins, conspiracy, and revenge. But this time, the game is set in Paris during the French Revolution, and the game is ruffling a few feathers in France for its depiction of perhaps the defining event of modern European history.

How the story you tell yourself can make you happier

Harnessing happiness has become something of a cultural obsession. Countless studies have linked our happiness to money, age, location, and timing of having children, to name just a few.

But there’s arguably an easier way to make your life feel more meaningful: Tell yourself a positive story about your life. That’s the thinking behind a slew of research on happiness, and one motto of positive psychologist Shawn Achor, who researches and lectures about the link between happiness and success.

How the craft beer revolution made cans cool again

Craft brewers love cans because they better protect beer from light and oxygen—two of a brew’s greatest enemies. Light exposure is what makes beer “skunk,” or smell awful. Light penetrates glass bottles, even the dark brown ones, but it doesn’t go through aluminum cans. And unlike a bottle cap, the seal on top of a can doesn’t let any oxygen in or out.

Damned if you do and damned if you don’t – why body image needs regulation

Our obsession with women’s weight and attractiveness manifests in different ways in the media, including being sold images that are far removed from reality and often impossible to achieve, or focusing on women’s looks rather then their achievements.

The pressure to represent more realistic images of women in the media has lead to larger models being used, though as Calvin Klein discovered when it featured a US size 8-10 (UK 12-14) model, criticism was quick to be triggered by a suggestion on Twitter that she was “plus-size”.

Here’s what it takes to make your down coat ethical this winter

Conventionally, birds used for down are born at parent farms where they can stay up to four years as they lay eggs and are plucked for their feathers as many as four times a year (pdf). The painful process tears the birds’ skin and can cause enough pain to kill the birds. China produces 70% of the world’s down, exporting about $1.9 billion annually. Eastern European countries, including Hungary and Poland, are also major sources.

The surprising reason why you get cold when you sleep

Your core temperature, typically at around 98.6°F, drops by a degree or two as you're getting sleepy and as the night goes on. And a few hours before you wake up again, it starts to rise.

What makes your body get colder?

The main driver here is light, which regulates your circadian rhythms, aka your sleep/wake cycle. Exposure to light, and blue light in particular, hits specialized receptors in your eyes, which then send this signal to the brain's hypothalamus. The signal then reaches a tiny structure called the suprachiasmatic nucleus.

This structure essentially functions as your body's master clock. And among other things, it controls the release of the hormone melatonin, which makes people sleepy. And it also controls your body temperature.

//Red meat

Why does eating red meat elevate breast cancer risk, especially for young women on the pill?

Why is red meat a potential cause of breast cancer?

The authors provide two mechanistic hypotheses. The first is through the carcinogenic by-products of cooking meat at high temperatures (i.e. grilling or barbequing). The second mechanism that the authors propose is through ‘hormone residues of the exogenous hormones for growth stimulation in beef cattle’ (1).

This latter hypothesis – hormone residues in beef cattle – is intriguing and alarming. Unfortunately, the authors do not expand on the policy implications.

The topic is certainly political and has huge implications for all women (and men) consuming red meat in the United States. Studies from international contexts with different cattle industry regulations would be useful for comparison with this study in the American context.

The risk associated with eating red meat appeared to be the highest among women who took oral contraceptive pills. Adolescence appeared to be a critical time period in life where the effects of eating red meat were the strongest. How do we explain these results, given that several breast cancer risk factors are hormonal in nature, or thought to act through hormonal pathways? Whether hormone residues or some other factor related to the meat is the culprit, some kind of biological interaction appears to be occurring between red meat and sex hormones.

Given the ubiquitous consumption of red meat and oral contraceptive pills, these issues demand attention.___

A team of researchers at the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences found considerable differences in the solid foods babies from different socioeconomic classes were being fed. Specifically, diets high in sugar and fat were found to be associated with less educated mothers and poorer households, while diets that more closely followed infant feeding guidelines were linked to higher education and bigger bank accounts.

"That is not a luxury that some can afford—our 24-hour society often requires people to work late, usually the youngest and poorest."

Scientists have found that a decade of shifts at odd hours ages the brain by six and a half years. This is in addition to some of the well-known physiological effects of disrupting circadian rhythms, which compels the body to be awake during the day and asleep at night, such as heart disease, ulcers, and a much higher chance of developing of breast cancer.

(The vast majority of corn, soy, and sugar beets in the US are genetically modified, which means that roughly 60 to 70 percent of processed foods at the grocery store include some GMO ingredients.)

Those opposed to labeling, including food and biotechnology companies, say the laws could lead to higher prices at the grocery store or frivolous lawsuits. A number of scientists, meanwhile, argue that genetic engineering is a useful tool — and that labela put an unwarranted stigma on it. The "no" campaigns in both states have raised millions of dollars, with large out-of-state food companies and agribusinesses like Monsanto, Dupont Pioneer, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, and Kellogg donating heavily.___

//Milk

The idea that milk prevents broken bones is an udder sham

One of milk's big sells — aside from being a nice complement to breakfast cereal — is that its high calcium-content helps build stronger bones. A big new study of more than 100,000 Swedes suggests this is absolutely false: it finds no correlation between stronger bones and milk consumption.

The new research, published British Medical Journal, examined whether consuming more dairy products correlated with longer life or fewer fractures. They used a 20-year data set of how much dairy tens of thousands of Swedish people consumed daily.

Most of what they learned about milk was not good news. They found that, in both women and men, higher milk consumption correlated with higher rates of death. And in women, those who consumed more milk were also more likely to have fractured a bone,not... more »

Lay Off the Artisanal Ice, You Ignorant Hipsters

Here's the cold, hard truth about those giant ice cubes in craft cocktails.

If you want to understand the latest trend in craft cocktails, you could do worse than to listen to Outkast. What's cooler than being cool is indeed ice cold. Specifically, it's stored at minus-2 degrees, sculpted with a Japanese band saw, and retails for $1 a cube.

Yes, artisanal ice is now a thing. In hipster meccas from Portland to Williamsburg, bars are serving up their drinks on extra-dense, extra-clear cubes, produced through a laborious process of freezing and carving. Cocktail connoisseurs swear the difference in flavor is worth the extra effort: In addition to being more aesthetically pleasing, the cubes' density and relatively large size mean they melt more slowly and dilute your drink less. But there's evidence... more »
