Mike Elgan2,022,742Is my League the best Circle on Google+?Sorry to brag, but I think it is. Why?

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

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.

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

//Spicy food

Men who like spicy food are actually more alpha

A study by researchers from the University of Grenoble found that men who preferred spicier foods also tended to have higher testosterone levels than men with milder tastes.

The researchers found that men with higher testosterone levels tended to use more hot sauce and indicated a greater preference for it. There was no relationship between testosterone and the amount of salt used. High testosterone levels in men have long been linked to dominant and competitive traits.

Who owns the moon?

Don’t forget to ask for a receipt.

More seriously, big corporations, rich entrepreneurs and even US politicians are eyeing up the moon and its untapped resources. Russia has plans for a manned colony by 2030 and a Japanese firm wants to build a ring of solar panels around the moon and beam energy back to Earth.

Ben Goldacre's interview on pseudoscientific rubbish

This.

"Giving people a ten-point plan about how to spot bad science isn’t going to help those people because they probably don’t care about science. I don’t think you can reason people out of positions they didn’t reason themselves into."

Why your family drives you crazy

This isn't surprising. We love our families, after all — they can make the holidays more joyful and special. But those family members that we love so dearly are the same ones that can make us white with rage. Research shows that the people who most annoy us are our loved ones and that, at the same time, we tend to be cruelest to the ones that we love the best.

"The question is: why? Why do the people we love cause us to feel so angry and irritated even when they do not mean to?"

How astronauts celebrate Christmas in space

no egg nog!

NASA now provides astronauts a pretty varied menu of canned and freeze-dried foods, including holiday-oriented dishes like smoked turkey and mashed potatoes, which the astronauts will be eating on Christmas.

For each month they spend in space, each astronaut is also allowed one container of bonus foods that aren't part of the standard menu — things like cookies and candies.

Despite their best efforts, though, NASA dietitians are up against some obstacles. For one thing, astronauts have consistently reported that their sense of taste seems to be dulled in space, perhaps because of the way microgravity makes many of them congested much of the time in orbit.

Being Thin Doesn't Spare Asian-Americans From Diabetes Risk

"Asian-Americans with a BMI of 23 ... might have a similar risk as someone who is not Asian-American with a BMI around 27."

Asian-Americans, the fastest-growing racial or ethnic group in the U.S., are 18 percent more likely to have Type 2 diabetes than their non-Hispanic white counterparts. Even Asian-Americans who aren't considered overweight by standard measures (a BMI of 25 to 30) are still at risk for diabetes.

//Calories

What 2,000 Calories Looks Like

Researchers have long understood that people are more likely to finish what’s on their plate than to stop eating because they’ve consumed a given amount of food. It’s “the completion compulsion,” a phrase coined in the 1950s by the psychologist Paul S. Siegel. Combine that compulsion with the rising number of restaurant meals Americans eat and the substance of those meals, and you start to understand why we’ve put on so much weight.

//Weight training and belly fat

Weight Training Key to Battling Belly Fat in Men aged 40 or older -- Study

"Measuring waist circumference is a better indicator of healthy body composition among older adults. Engaging in resistance training or, ideally, combining it with aerobic exercise could help older adults lessen abdominal fat while increasing or preserving muscle mass."

Healthy men who did twenty minutes of daily weight training had less of an increase in age-related abdominal fat compared with men who spent the same amount of time doing aerobic activities, according to a new study by Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers and colleagues. Combining weight training and aerobic activity led to the most optimal results. Aerobic exercise by itself was associated with less weight gain compared with weight training.

Chinese doctors are in hot water after their surgery room glamour shots went viral

The “surgery table selfie” scandal, as it’s being called in Chinese, is the latest example of the strained relationships between the Chinese public and the country’s medical profession. Resentment over rampant bribery and scarce resources in China’s health care system has generated a wave of violent attacks on doctors and nurses in hospitals around the country.

//Fast Food Consumption and Academic Growth in Late Childhood

New evidence that fast food is bad for kids’ learning

The consequences of a poor diet may have been laid bare by a new study published in Clinical Pediatrics (paywall), which suggests that children who eat regularly at McDonald’s, KFC, Pizza Hut, and the like don’t perform as well at school as their peers.

“Research has been focused on how children’s food consumption contributes to the child obesity epidemic,” Kelly Purtell, who led the study at Ohio State University, told the Telegraph. “Our findings provide evidence that eating fast food is linked to another problem: poorer academic outcomes.”

//Smiling

How we grin to bear it – the science of smiling

How they make us feel better, how to fake them and why you should say ‘cheeks’ not ‘cheese’ 

The main point of interest was how smiling would affect recovery from stress – and it was shown to be more rapid with Duchenne smiling compared with regular smiling or not smiling at all. So, fake or not, putting on a Duchenne smile may be just the tonic to combat stress.

The chemical binds to receptors inside a cat's nose, which stimulate sensory neurons leading into the brain. This appears to alter activity in several areas of the brain, including the olfactory bulb, the amygdala, and the hypothalamus. This last area, among other things, is involved in regulating the animal's emotions.

//'Bulletproof Diet'

...

The Bulletproof Diet is everything wrong with eating in America

"The Bulletproof Diet is very extreme. It's basically a very low-carb Paleolithic diet that emphasizes fat." 

To become Bulletproof — "reclaiming energy and focus" and "upgrading your life" — you need to cut your intake of gluten and sugar, stop eating grains and legumes, and nearly eliminate fruit because fruit is basically candy, according to Asprey.

How to prevent holiday weight gain?

Although only 1 in 10 individuals will gain 5 lbs or more during the holidays, most of us will put on some weight that tends to stay with us during the course of the following year. Thus, to help you avoid becoming that 1 in 10 who puts on more weight than average during the next couple of weeks, here’s a list of 3 easy tricks to curb overindulging.

How Exercise Changes Our DNA

Enter epigenetics, a process by which the operation of genes is changed, but not the DNA itself. Epigenetic changes occur on the outside of the gene, mainly through a process called methylation. In methylation, clusters of atoms, called methyl groups, attach to the outside of a gene like microscopic mollusks and make the gene more or less able to receive and respond to biochemical signals from the body.

Scientists know that methylation patterns change in response to lifestyle. Eating certain diets or being exposed to pollutants, for instance, can change methylation patterns on some of the genes in our DNA and affect what proteins those genes express. Depending on which genes are involved, it may also affect our health and risk for disease.

4) Gwyneth Paltrow: water has feelings and you can add length to your legs

Every day seems to turn up opportunities to abuse science in new and perverse ways, especially when it comes to health.

Many of these claims — even the ones that come from the lips of the most esteemed doctors and public officials — aren't backed by any good evidence. Some even run in the opposite direction of what the best-available evidence tells us.

//Spicy food

Men who like spicy food are actually more alpha

A study by researchers from the University of Grenoble found that men who preferred spicier foods also tended to have higher testosterone levels than men with milder tastes.

The researchers found that men with higher testosterone levels tended to use more hot sauce and indicated a greater preference for it. There was no relationship between testosterone and the amount of salt used. High testosterone levels in men have long been linked to dominant and competitive traits.

Lie detectors: Why they don't work, and why police use them anyway

"Almost a century of research in scientific psychology and physiology provides little basis for the expectation that a polygraph test could have extremely high accuracy."

The FBI gives a polygraph test to every single person who's considered for a job there. When the DEA, CIA, and other agencies are taken into account, about 70,000 people a year submit to polygraphs while seeking security clearances and jobs with the federal government.

Polygraphs are also regularly used by law enforcement when interrogating suspects. In some places, they're used to monitor the activities of sex offenders on probation, and some judges have recently permitted plea bargains that hinge on the results of defendants' polygraph tests.

Dog brains process human speech in the same way we do

Sometimes it may seem like your dog doesn’t want to listen. But in our study, however, we’ve found that he may understand more than he lets on.

Human speech is complex, communicating not only words but also tone, as well as information about the speaker such as their gender and identity. To what extent can a dog pick up on these different cues?

The Paper: http://www.cell.com/current-biology/abstract/S0960-9822(14)01339-6

//Grand Canyon

Here's what the Grand Canyon looks like when it's filled entirely with fog

So what caused the fog? The short answer is that a temperature inversion basically trapped clouds inside the canyon.

The fog formed due to what's known as a total temperature inversion. This occurs when a cold layer of air is trapped at the base of the canyon and is topped by a warmer layer.

On clear, calm nights, the rate of cooling near the surface increases and, if there is low level moisture present, condensation processes kick in and fog forms. And on Thursday at the Grand Canyon, recent rains in the region provided the moisture necessary for the fog to develop.

Eating a low-fat diet may reduce the risk of early death in some women with breast cancer

"Based on this and other studies, Heber said his advice for all breast cancer patients is to reduce calories from fat to 20 percent or 25 percent of all calories and to focus on healthy fats, such as omega-3s found in fish such as salmon and other foods."

The low-fat diet seemed particularly helpful for early stage breast cancer patients with so-called estrogen receptor-negative (ER-negative) disease. These women had a 36 percent reduced risk of death from any cause over 15 years if they ate a low-fat diet for five years following their diagnosis, said study researcher Dr. Rowan Chlebowski. He is a medical oncologist at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.

Why so many of the health articles you read are junk

Overhyped health stories are a huge problem

"Journals and university press offices need to put stricter quality standards in place to avoid the kinds of misleading and misshapen journalism that not only confuses health matters, but may have a negative impact on human health."

Misleading health news stories are surprisingly widespread. One survey by Gary Schwitzer, who runs the watchdog website HealthNewsReview, looked at 500 health stories published in large newspapers over two years. Many of the stories were awfully flawed, he found, overplaying the benefits and underplaying the harms of various treatments, exaggerating the prevalence of diseases, and leaving out discussion of alternative options.

//'Detox'

"But the idea that your liver somehow needs to be ‘cleansed’ is ridiculous.”

You can’t detox your body. It’s a myth. So how do you get healthy?

There’s no such thing as ‘detoxing’. In medical terms, it’s a nonsense.

“Let’s be clear,” says Edzard Ernst, emeritus professor of complementary medicine at Exeter University, “there are two types of detox: one is respectable and the other isn’t.” The respectable one, he says, is the medical treatment of people with life-threatening drug addictions. “The other is the word being hijacked by entrepreneurs, quacks and charlatans to sell a bogus treatment that allegedly detoxifies your body of toxins you’re supposed to have accumulated.”

Billionaire Paul Allen Pledges $100 Million for Cell Science Institute

Software billionaire Paul Allen says he's committing $100 million to create a new institute in Seattle focusing on the mechanics of human cell biology.

The Allen Institute for Cell Science's first project, the Allen Cell Observatory, will focus on creating computational models for the kinds of induced pluripotent stem cells, or IPS cells, that have the ability to turn into heart muscle cells or the epithelial cells that form the inner linings of organs as well as skin.

Einstein's advice to Marie Curie on dealing with trolls: "Don't read that hogwash"

Way back in 1911, in fact, Albert Einstein was giving Marie Curie advice on how to deal with them, as astrobiologist David Grinspoon recently discovered in a huge trove of new Einstein letters put online this week.

At the time, Curie was putting up with a lot of ridiculous criticism. Despite winning a Nobel Prize for her pioneering work on radioactivity, in January 1911, her bid for a seat in the French Academy of Sciences had been rejected, likely in part because she was a woman and atheist, and perhaps also due to rumors that she was Jewish — a problem in an anti-Semitic, Dreyfuss affair-era France.
