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.

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.

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

Not everyone celebrates the New Year on January 1. Here's when other cultures do it.

Our own American New Year is fixed to the Gregorian calendar, which Pope Gregory XIII established in 1582 to account for a discrepancy of 10 days that had accumulated since Julius Caesar had borrowed the Egyptians’ 12-months-and-365-days-plus-leap-years format. (Earth’s trip around the Sun is — inconveniently — not quite 365.25 days long.) Gregory XIII also moved the New Year from March 25 (the Feast of Annunciation) to January 1, where it still stands today.

Killer heels could lead to osteoarthritis in knees, warn scientists
.
A new study suggests that wearing high-heels of at least three-and-a-half inches also prematurely ages knee joints and could lead to osteoarthritis.

Stanford University scientists have found that every time a woman puts on a pair of stilettos she is putting dangerous levels of strain on her joints. And for women who are overweight the damage is even worse.

What's the secret to Japan's slender population? Serious 'eating education'

"We don't just teach them about cooking; we teach them about the importance of eating local."

Twenty-two years ago, home economics became a core course, like science and math. At Azabu High, an all-boys school in central Tokyo, students spend hours in the classroom calculating the protein, fat, carbohydrate and calorie-count of various foods. They also whip up balanced meals in the school’s industrial kitchen.

Vegetarians and Their Superior Blood

A plant-based diet can lower your blood pressure, according to research released today in a major medical journal. Should we really stop eating meat before starting medication?

"We looked at every published study, so it’s really undeniably true," Barnard said at the outset of our conversation, in a manner that anticipated a denial I wasn't prepared to offer. "People who follow vegetarian diets, they’ve got substantially lower blood pressures. [The effect] is about half as strong as taking a medication."

Taxpayers spend $140 billion funding science each year — but can't access many of the results

American universities and government groups spend $10-billion each year to access the science. That's ten billion dollars to buy back content we have often already paid for in the first place.

"This is an almost naked admission that [the government] is trying to preserve this $10 billion a year industry," said Eisen. "The tragedy is that it's not a new observation. It's as true today as it was 20 years ago."

Souring on Sweeteners: Why Diet Sugars Don't Work

Sweet Serendipity: It was 1878, when a beaker of coal tar compounds boiled over in the chemistry laboratory of Ira Remsen at the newly founded Johns Hopkins University. Researcher Constantine Fahlberg cleaned up the mess, but later at dinner, his hands tasted surprisingly sweet as he put a piece of bread in his mouth. And this is how the first artificial sweetener was discovered! Named saccharin, it was 300 times sweeter than sugar. Soon, it was being prescribed to President Theodore Roosevelt, to counter his corpulence. More low-calorie sweeteners followed: sucralose, stevia and neotame, the last one being 10,000 times sweeter than table sugar. Today, 30% of adults and 15% of children in the U.S. consume low calorie sweeteners. A sweet deal, right?

Souring on Sweeteners: Why Diet Sugars Don't Work

Sweet Serendipity: It was 1878, when a beaker of coal tar compounds boiled over in the chemistry laboratory of Ira Remsen at the newly founded Johns Hopkins University. Researcher Constantine Fahlberg cleaned up the mess, but later at dinner, his hands tasted surprisingly sweet as he put a piece of bread in his mouth. And this is how the first artificial sweetener was discovered! Named saccharin, it was 300 times sweeter than sugar. Soon, it was being prescribed to President Theodore Roosevelt, to counter his corpulence.

Today, 30% of adults and 15% of children in the U.S. consume low calorie sweeteners. A sweet deal, right?

Caloric Contradictions: Unfortunately, counterintuitive to expectations, studies show that people who consume large amounts of artificially sweetened drinks gain more weight and body fat compared to those who don’t. Could this be a case of reverse causation? Perhaps, increased body weight encourages people to turn to non-caloric sweeteners. However, this has been ruled out by (i) controlling for baseline body weight at the start of the study and by (ii) looking at weight changes in people who are not overweight to begin with. Another possibility is cognitive distortion: because non-caloric sweeteners are perceived to be healthy, we take that as permission to consume more high-calorie foods. Imaging studies of the human brain reveal a metabolic cause: unlike ordinary sugar, non-caloric sweeteners do not trigger the reward circuits that initiate satiety and fail to activate normal pathways of insulin release needed to deal with caloric loads. 

Diet to Diabetes: New research in both mice and humans showed that artificial sweeteners also change our gut microbiome, leading to glucose intolerance, the first step to diabetes. Surprisingly, if the feces from saccharin-fed mice was transplanted into mice whose guts were first cleared of bacteria by antibiotics, the sugar handling defect could be induced in the healthy mice. Oh, expletive!

Only 16% of US community college students go on to earn four-year degrees

US president Barack Obama wants to provide free community college to any American “who’s willing to work for it,” as a way to help shrink income inequality in the US. But how much will it close the gap?

Ideally, the ranks of American bachelor’s degree holders would increase if Obama’s proposal is successful—two years of free community college could allow students to save on a couple of years’ tuition at a four-year school, and indeed, one element of the plan includes ensuring that community college credits are fully transferrable to four-year schools.

But the road to completion of a four-year degree isn’t well traveled by Americans who start their education at community colleges.

Now multiple research studies suggest that a Nordic diet may indeed be one of the world’s healthiest. We’re not talking about subsisting on stereotypical Scandinavian fare liked reindeer meatballs and Wasa crackers, and it won’t be necessary to do any grocery shopping at Ikea.

This is the New Nordic Diet, which actually isn’t so new anymore. It was created in 2004 by a cohort of Danish chefs and nutritionists, and built on concepts that are all-too-familiar now, including local, seasonal, simple, rustic, and fresh.

Let's talk about coffee...

With all the noise online about the new coffee, I thought I give it a go. So, I decided to try the new coffee from Starbucks called, Flat White. I don't know if I'm impressed or disappointed. I thought it was okay. Anyway, what do you think? Have you tried it?

//Calories

interesting piece.

Why most food labels are wrong about calories

A calorie is a measure of usable energy. Food labels say how many calories a food contains. But what they don’t say is that how many calories you actually get out of your food depends on how highly processed it is.

Food-processing includes cooking, blending and mashing, or using refined instead of unrefined flour. It can be done by the food industry before you buy, or in your home when you prepare a meal. Its effects can be big. If you eat your food raw, you will tend to lose weight. If you eat the same food cooked, you will tend to gain weight. Same calories, different outcome.

This. Prevention is better than cure.

Cancer’s Random Assault

“It’s really the combination of inherited factors, environment and chance. At the base, there is the chance of mutations, to which we add, either because of things we inherited or the environment, our lifestyle.”

“So one would not want to dilute the important public health message that although most cancer is likely due to random events (affecting DNA replication) at the cellular level, at the population level, the most powerful interventions to decrease the burden of cancer are to stop smoking, know your family history and aim for ideal weight.”

Bad luck, bad journalism and cancer rates

Please, journalists, get a clue before you write about science

Not everyone celebrates the New Year on January 1. Here's when other cultures do it.

Our own American New Year is fixed to the Gregorian calendar, which Pope Gregory XIII established in 1582 to account for a discrepancy of 10 days that had accumulated since Julius Caesar had borrowed the Egyptians’ 12-months-and-365-days-plus-leap-years format. (Earth’s trip around the Sun is — inconveniently — not quite 365.25 days long.) Gregory XIII also moved the New Year from March 25 (the Feast of Annunciation) to January 1, where it still stands today.

This is why you should not get that very discounted gym membership

With health and fitness clubs slicing their prices for the new year: between reduced enrollment fees and membership discounts, January offers some of the best deals on exercising, right as you feel like you need it most. Everyone else is thinking the exact same way—for at least, say, a couple of weeks?

And this is exactly how gyms tend to make money—by exploiting two of the strongest forces known to humankind: guilt, and laziness. They want you even if you know you won’t go back—in fact, they want you because they know you won’t go back. A successful gym does not have the physical space to host all of its members: essentially, it’s counting on a large percentage of them to never show up.

Masculine-sounding lawyers less likely to win in court

"Although legal systems are based on the principle of fair, objective trials, we know that obscure factors, such as whether the judge has eaten recently, can bias a case. Yu's results suggest that the masculinity of the voice is another source of bias, but why remains a mystery."

In the adversarial, macho environment of the courtroom, a booming voice might seem like a good trait for a lawyer to cultivate. Not so - men who sound very masculine are actually less likely to win a US Supreme Court case than their more gentle-sounding peers.

Why our New Year’s resolutions are all wrong

"The more you train yourself to look for the blessings in your life, the more blessings you will find. And when you feel good about yourself and your life, you’ll be more likely to choose positive, healthy behaviors."

Losing weight is by far the most popular New Year’s resolution. Quitting smoking, stopping drinking, promising to save more money and hitting the gym are also up there.

We are going about our New Year’s resolutions all wrong, always trying to change the symptoms instead of addressing the heart of the problem—the behaviors rather than what’s motivating them in the first place. We need to resolve to make better resolutions!

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?"

//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.”

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.

//Catnip

How catnip gets your cat high

Cats get high off catnip by inhaling the nepetalactone — whether from a live plant, dried plant material, or an oil extract. 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.
