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+

Michael Pedersen0I'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 04:42:3176304CC 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+

P E Sharpe19,435You Turn Me OnThis is my happy little constantly evolving circle of sapiosexual delights. 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+

Bookless library opened by new US university

Florida Polytechnic University's enormous facility promises to make 'many more books available for the students' in digital form.

There are no dusty bookshelves or piles of textbooks in the library of Florida's newest university. Welcoming its first students this week, Florida Polytechnic University's new library houses not a single physical book.

Instead, its inaugural class of 500 will have access to around 135,000 ebooks. "Our on-campus library is entirely digital," said director of libraries Kathryn Miller. "We have access to print books through the state university system's interlibrary loan program.  However, we strongly encourage our students to read and work with information digitally."

//Paleo diet

Is there any real science behind the low-carb Paleo diet?

Against the grains

A carbs-rich diet has been blamed for the alarming explosion of obesity and chronic disease. What does the science show?

"Yet even if our ancestors were healthy without grains, that sheds little light on the situation today. Diet is hardly the only culprit pundits bring up to explain the health crisis in our midst. What about all the chemicals and toxins in modern society; or our lit-up nights; our sedentary ways?"

//Trans fat

You're Probably Eating Trans Fat Without Knowing It

A quick trans-fat primer, if you need it: It’s naturally found in some animal products and is not quite so bad in these instances, but most of the trans fat Americans consume comes from partially hydrogenated oils — generally speaking, where there are partially hydrogenated oils, there is also trans fat.

And that’s a problem since, last fall, the Food and Drug Administration tentatively determined PHOs to be “not generally recognized as safe for any use in food.” (If that decision is finalized, partially hydrogenated oils will not be allowed in foods sold in the U.S.) Nutritionists discourage consuming even small amounts of trans fat, as it has been linked to heart disease and type 2 diabetes; the American Heart Association recommends cutting it out of your diet as much as possible.

Tomato-rich diet can lower prostate cancer risk by a fifth, scientists claim

Men who ate an optimal amount of selenium, calcium and lycopene had a lower risk of developing prostate cancer.

Tomatoes and products containing the fruit were shown to be the most beneficial food for preventing the disease.

Men who ate over 10 portions of tomato-rich foods a week, including tomato juice and baked beans, benefited from an 18 per cent reduction in developing prostate cancer.

Don’t Want Me to Recline My Airline Seat? You Can Pay Me

"Tall people earn more money than short people, an average of $789 per inch per year."

A no-recline norm would also have troubling social justice implications — for short people. Complaints about knee room are not spread equally across our society. They are voiced mostly by the tall, a privileged group that already enjoys many advantages. I don’t just mean they can see well at concerts and reach high shelves. Tall people earn more money than short people, an average of $789 per inch per year, according to a 2004 paper in the Journal of Applied Psychology.

Junk food rats ditch balanced diet to eat just like obese people

"The bottom line? Stick to home-made, whole foods to maintain a normal, well-functioning physiology that can optimally regulate your weight, metabolism, appetite, and energy balance."

Rats are very useful for studying human eating behaviour. Both rats and humans are omnivores, and both use flavour conditioning – learning through taste and experience which foods are good to eat and which to avoid. So if a particular flavour is associated with a desirable outcome like feeling full, this makes it more palatable, whereas a stomach illness would make it unpalatable.

Google must make Android safer – our data is at risk

Over the past few months, the Android platform developed by Google and based on the Linux operating system has been having a difficult time. Hackers, with malicious intent and those without, have been investing time in finding out how weak this operating system is.

Android runs on more than four out of five mobile devices. It is popular because it is free and its terms do not dictate to device manufacturers what hardware it must be used on.

Study: Dogs really do look like their owners

So why do dogs and owners resemble each other?

One contributing factor is health. Research has shown that overweight people tend to have overweight dogs, because these dogs don't get walked as much. Indeed, researchers have measured an overall increase in obesity among all sorts of pets as human obesity rates have climbed.

A more important factor may be preference — the idea that, in general, people tend to choose dogs that look a little like them.

Dash of Salt Does No Harm. Extremes Are the Enemy.

"Americans consume, on average, 3.4 grams of sodium per day, or about the equivalent of three and a half tablespoons of soy sauce. This is on the low end of the “safe zone” of 3-6 grams in the study. The United States Food and Drug Administration thinks that’s not low enough. It recommends 2.3 grams per day. The World Health Organization says it should be 2.0 grams. The American Heart Association goes even further and recommends we consume no more than 1.5 grams."

For years, we have known that diets high in salt can be bad for people with high blood pressure. A study published recently in The New England Journal of Medicine confirmed this fact. It monitored more than 100,000 people in 18 countries and found that people who consumed more sodium generally had significantly higher blood pressures than thosewho d... more »

Your body is covered with microbes, inside and out. They're on your skin, in your ears, in your mouth, your gut, on your genitalia. It might sound gross, but it's perfectly normal — your bacterial cells outnumber your human cells by about ten to one.

//Instant noodles

Instant Noodles Tied to Heart Risk

In any case, Dr. Hu said, instant noodles are not part of a healthy diet. “Once or twice a month is not a problem,” he said. “But a few times a week really is.”

Researchers in South Korea, where instant noodle consumption is the highest in the world, studied 10,711 adults, a representative sample of the Korean population enrolled in a large survey of health and nutrition. They found two major dietary patterns — the “traditional diet,” of fish, rice and vegetables, and the “meat and fast-food” regimen, rich in meat and processed food, including instant noodles.

//The Weekend Read

interesting piece.

The first smile

Why do laughter, smiles and tears look so similar? Perhaps because they all evolved from a single root.

"It’s amazing that so much could spring from such a simple root. An age-old defensive mechanism, a mechanism that monitors bubbles of space around the body and organises protective movements, suddenly takes flight in the hyper-social world of primates, spinning into smiles and laughter and crying and cringeing."

Our Microbiome May Be Looking Out for Itself

"If microbes do in fact manipulate us, Dr. Knight said, we might be able to manipulate them for our own benefit — for example, by eating yogurt laced with bacteria that would make us crave healthy foods."

Your body is home to about 100 trillion bacteria and other microbes, collectively known as your microbiome. Naturalists first became aware of our invisible lodgers in the 1600s, but it wasn’t until the past few years that we’ve become really familiar with them.

Sleep Hack: Keep Your Feet Outside Your Covers

Introducing a slightly odd but potentially very useful sleep hack: Keep one foot, or both feet, outside of your blanket. It could help you both sleep better and fall asleep faster, a sleep researcher explained to Science of Us.

But why the foot, specifically? The skin surfaces of both our hands and feet are unique, Dautovitch explained, both in that they’re hairless and because they contain specialized vascular structures that help with heat loss. Specifically, the hands and feet contain blood vessels called the arteriovenous anastomoses, which — coupled with the lack of hair on the bottoms of your feet — are perfectly designed to help dissipate body heat.

We're happier when we chat to strangers, but our instinct is to ignore them

"Of course one can look for loopholes in these studies. One problem is the results may be specific to urban US culture. Another is this research involved isolated instances of chatting to a stranger. In real life, frequent commuters may avoid striking up conversation with fellow travellers, for fear of getting stuck talking with the same person everyday."

//Your skin

See the damage sun can wreak on skin thanks to a UV camera

Skin damage isn't easily seen at the surface, but it's there, lurking just underneath. A special camera designed to show what the world looks like in ultraviolet, rather than visible, light, however, can show these subsurface freckles. In the video above Thomas Leveritt did just that, showing people on the street the subsurface damage their skin has wrought because of the sun's rays.

When your skin is exposed to the sun's ultraviolet radiation, the high-energy rays can damage your DNA and injure your cells. In the short term, that might just mean sunburn, but in the long term, it can lead to bigger problems, like skin cancer or an accelerated appearance of aging.

Fast food and you: The effects of too much fat, sugar, and salt in your diet

Dr Nick Knight looks at what all of this fast food is really doing to our bodies.

"The best way to explain the role of sugars is to talk about the ‘crash’. Not the Academy Award winning movie, no, but the feeling you get after you have demolished your fast food meal in record time, and then 60 minutes later slip into an exhausted, sluggish, and lethargic ‘food-coma’ to rival Sleeping Beauty. The simple, refined sugars in these foods give your blood sugar levels a huge, immediate spike – giving you that burst of energy – before being used up almost immediately. This is why you are left craving more – you are, in part, addicted to the sugar; just like kids and sweets."

High salt levels in fast food (roughly 2g in a fast food burger alone, equalling one third of your maximum daily allowance) can leave you feeling thirsty in the short term - but in the long-term can affect your blood pressure and subsequent risk of future cardiovascular disease.

Nature, not nurture, holds key to gut bacteria

Intestinal bacteria, also known as the microbiome, is vital for good health throughout life because it affects everything from daily digestion to the long-term functioning of our immune systems.

But little is understood about how the gut of a newborn infant transitions from being sterile to becoming densely inhabited with bacteria.

Researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine discovered these bacterial communities, which assemble within the gut just weeks after birth, colonise in distinct, patterned progressions.

Trend for larger tattoos masks a deeper problem of toxins and the skin

"Tattooing may seem like just a piece of skin art, but it involves the deep injection of potentially toxic chemicals into the skin."

Evolutionary biologists argue that we humans climbed to the pinnacle of our mammalian tree as a result of a penchant for sun and sex. And that our human prowess was guided, if not driven by our adaptation to life on this sun-drenched planet (a remarkably high proportion of our genome is associated with UV receptors). While the potential dangers of too much sun on the skin are well known, what about the new skin fashion-du-jour – tattoos?

Us and them

From newborns to nation states, we trust similarity. But does that mean we must hate difference?

"New-born babies gaze with equal attention at faces regardless of ethnic appearance, but by three months they prefer looking at faces from their own ethnic group. As their ability to organise their impressions develops, they focus on the kind of faces they see most often."

We come into the world with open minds, ready to tune in to whatever language or culture surrounds us. But as we lock on to the strongest signals, the others become less distinct. As our sense of ‘us’ develops, our sense of ‘them’ degrades.

“We expected to find an association between low Vitamin D levels and the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, but the results were surprising – we actually found that the association was twice as strong as we anticipated."

“Clinical trials are now needed to establish whether eating foods such as oily fish or taking vitamin D supplements can delay or even prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. We need to be cautious at this early stage and our latest results do not demonstrate that low vitamin D levels cause dementia. That said, our findings are very encouraging, and even if a small number of people could benefit, this would have enormous public health implications given the devastating and costly nature of dementia.”

Recently, a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition said that organic fruits and vegetables are more nutritious.

A press release declared it the "largest study" of its kind. Because of its size and breadth, some people believe that it trumps previous research which showed organic food did not appear to be any safer or more nutritious than conventionally grown food.

You can add this button directly in your website. For more information about the CircleCount Buttons and the description how to add them to another page click here.
