Roy Richardson1,476Circle Share-- Foodies, Food Bloggers, and People who are very Social about FoodWhile I haven't shared very much of this side of me on Google+, I am a major foodie. I looked for a long time for the word that described me and one day Patton Oswalt used that word in an interview and I Googled it to find its meaning and there I was. Here is a circle of Food experts and Food mad scientists who look at food as a path to healthy living or happy living. I don't think you will be disappointed. I will start posting more of my own recipes and food experiments.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foodie2013-11-19 21:43:5588000CC G+

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 12:04:1432181041CC G+

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.

Danial Hallock (Kysimir)4,130The Three HundredRough DraftA few weeks ago I posted a rather lengthy post about how I was changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).  This is the first rough draft of that circle, minus a few ninjas that prefer not to be shared out.  As such, the landscape of this circle will change drastically over the next few months; but I wanted to give the people who are following this circle a glimpse of what to expect.  As always, If you're notified you're in it. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream? :D #thethreehundred   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring  2012-10-22 15:52:142971201281CC G+

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+

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+

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+

Want your skin to look 20 to 30 years younger? Try this

Exercise reverses skin's aging on microscopic level, McMaster University study suggests.

Preliminary findings out of McMaster University shows that exercise can prevent and even reverse the effects of aging in the skin.

“It shows is that exercise is something we should be doing not just for our hearts and our brains and to lower cancer risk,” said Dr. Mark Tarnopolsky, a professor of pediatrics and exercise science at McMaster, “but also it’s going to make our skin healthier.”

//Childhood bullying

Childhood bullying can continue to damage mental and physical health long into adulthood, a new study has said, with victims more likely to suffer from depression, ill-health and even joblessness up to 40 years later.

The negative impact of bullying on people’s physical, mental and social wellbeing in adult life appeared to be comparable to that experienced by adults who had been taken into care as a child, researchers from Kings College London said.

Elderly who lose interest in pastimes could be at risk of Alzheimer's Disease.

A study showed elderly people who are apathetic but not suffering depression have shrinking amounts of grey and white matter.

Gray matter is where learning takes place and memories are stored in the brain. White matter acts as the communication cables that connect different parts of the brain.

Losing interest in hobbies and other activities in older age could be an early sign of dementia, according to scientists.

High heels as supernormal stimuli: how wearing high heels affects judgements of female #attractiveness.

There is a strong contemporary association between high heels and female sexuality.

We investigated the hypothesis that one motivation for women wearing high heels is that it artificially increases the femininity of gait. We isolated the effects of heels on gait using point-light methodology. Females were recorded walking in flat shoes and high heels. Participants viewed point-light videos of the women wearing the two types of shoe. Participants judged the females in the heels condition as significantly more attractive (with a large effect size) than the females in the flat shoe condition.

Biomechanical analyses revealed that wearing high heels led to increased femininity of gait including reduced stride length and increased rotation and tilt of the... more »

Cow farts contribute to climate change. Now comes an idea for collecting up the gas, and making energy instead.

Each cow apparently passes enough gas to power a car or a fridge. Imagine the possibilities.

Cows produce up to 25% of methane emissions, and methane is a particularly potent greenhouse gas. It's no joke, then, to talk about limiting emissions from cow farts. We've written before about new breeding techniques and feeds, which could help cows better digest their food so they produce less gas. Now comes an idea for collecting up the gas, and making energy from it.

"The French ban on GM maize will now have to go to the Senate for approval. However, even if it is rejected again, the National Assembly will have the final say."

France’s lower house of parliament passed a law Tuesday prohibiting genetically modified (GM) maize from being grown, citing environmental concerns. The law can be applied to any GM strain that is adopted at EU level.

Fussy infants and toddlers watch more TV.

"Television and other entertainment media should be avoided for infants and children under age 2. A child's brain develops rapidly during these first years, and young children learn best by interacting with people, not screens." 

According to a new study published Monday in the journal Pediatrics, fussy babies and toddlers tend to watch more TV and videos than infants with no issues or mild issues. And that can lead to problems down the road.

"We found that babies and toddlers whose mothers rated them as having self-regulation problems – meaning, problems with calming down, soothing themselves, settling down to sleep, or waiting for food or toys – watched more TV and videos when they were age 2."

//Salt intake

Efforts to reduce salt intake pay off with heart disease and stroke deaths down 40%.

“We have absolutely no nutritional need to eat sugar or salt,” Professor MacGregor told The Independent. “Salt directly puts up your blood pressure, it is a major cause of death through that.”

“Sugar is merely an unnecessary source of calories… The best way to deal with obesity is to get your calorie intake down, particularly in ultra-processed fast foods, which give no feeling of satiation and are marketed to children. In some ways, I think it’s remarkable we’re not all obese, given what the food industry is doing to us.”

How Smart Are Crows?

Crows and their relatives, like jays and rooks, are definitely in the gifted class when it comes to the kinds of cognitive puzzles that scientists cook up.

They recognize human faces. They make tools to suit a given problem.

Sometimes they seem, as humans like to say, almost human. But the last common ancestor of humans and crows lived perhaps 300 million years ago, and was almost certainly no intellectual giant.

What you can remember from age 3 may help improve aspects of your life far into adulthood.

Children who have the ability to recall and make sense of memories from daily life—the first day of preschool, the time the cat died—can use them to better develop a sense of identity, form relationships and make sound choices in adolescence and adulthood, new research shows.

New Gene Map of Deadly Bird Flu Points to Pandemic Concerns

"I don't know why this [study] would even be considered a biological weapon."

When does scientific research cause more harm than good? That question has been at the heart of controversy over what should be published about avian flu.

A new study by virologist Ron Fouchier and researchers from Erasmus Medical Center in the Netherlands explores the ability of the H5N1 bird flu strain to become airborne transmissible between mammals. The researchers describe their work, published Thursday in the journal Cell, as providing key insights into how the bird flu virus might spread and, by extension, helping to prevent a possible pandemic.

Price tag for childhood obesity: $19,000 per kid

"In the case of childhood obesity, the real costs do not occur until decades later when these kids get adult health problems at a greater rate."

The $19,000 estimate reflects direct medical costs such as doctors' visits and medication but not indirect costs such as absenteeism and lost productivity into adulthood. The cost is "large, although perhaps not as large as some people would have guessed," says lead author Eric Finkelstein, a health economist.

Twelve ways to get healthier right now

Spring clean your relationships

There is a school of psychiatry called Interpersonal Psychotherapy. The basic idea is that much of how we feel, especially when we are feeling bad, is based on our relationships with others. If we can improve these key relationships (partner, friend, boss, parent, sibling) this will have an ongoing therapeutic effect for you. To do an “IPT Lite,” draw a diagram of your key relationships and beneath each one, write where it’s at and where you think it could be. Now pick out two or three. 

Not all relationships can be fixed, but they can be optimized. Here is the nugget: Yes, relationships are shared, but how the relationship affects you resides in you. Like a lot of health issues, it’s about your attitude. Also, that’s the part you can control.

Does a junk food diet make you lazy? UCLA psychology study offers answer.

A new UCLA psychology study provides evidence that being overweight makes people tired and sedentary — not the other way around.

Life scientists led by UCLA's Aaron Blaisdell placed 32 female rats on one of two diets for six months. The first, a standard rat's diet, consisted of relatively unprocessed foods like ground corn and fish meal. The ingredients in the second were highly processed, of lower quality and included substantially more sugar — a proxy for a junk food diet.

//Legumes

Daily serving of beans, peas, chickpeas or lentils can reduce bad cholesterol.

One serving of pulses is 130 grams or ¾ cup, yet Canadians on average eat less than half a serving a day. Pulses have a low glycemic index (meaning that they are foods that break down slowly) and tend to reduce or displace animal protein as well as “bad” fats such as trans fat in a dish or meal.

The Worst Places To Get Stung By A Bee: Nostril, Lip, Penis 

“But if you’re stung in the nose and penis, you’re going to want more stings to the penis over the nose, if you’re forced to choose.”

The most painful sites were the penis shaft (7.3), upper lip (8.7) and nostril (9.0). “It’s electric and pulsating,” he Smith. “Especially the nose. Your body really reacts. You’re sneezing and wheezing and snot is just dribbling out. Getting stung in the nose is a whole-body experience.”

//'The “Sunshine” vitamin

Low Vitamin D Levels Linked to Disease in Two Big Studies

People with low vitamin D levels are more likely to die from cancer and heart disease and to suffer from other illnesses, scientists reported in two large studies published on Tuesday.

The new research suggests strongly that blood levels of vitamin D are a good barometer of overall health. But it does not resolve the question of whether low levels are a cause of disease or simply an indicator of behaviors that contribute to poor health, like a sedentary lifestyle, smoking and a diet heavy in processed and unhealthful foods.

//Timing of Light Exposure, BMI, Sleep and Calories.

More Light Exposure Earlier During the Day Linked to Lower BMI

"Light is a powerful biological signal and appropriate timing, intensity and duration of exposure may represent a potentially modifiable risk factor for the prevention and management of obesity in modern societies."

People who loaded up on light exposure at the beginning of the day were most likely to have a lower body mass index, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal PLOS ONE. That relationship between morning light and BMI was independent of how many calories the study participants consumed.

Strong link between obesity and 'carb breakdown'

"These findings are very exciting. While studies to date have mainly found small effect genes that alter eating behaviour, we discovered how the digestive ‘tools’ in your metabolism  vary between people – and the genes coding for these – can have a large influence on your weight." 

Researchers at King’s College London and Imperial College London have discovered that people with fewer copies of a gene coding for a carb-digesting enzyme may be at higher risk of obesity. The findings, published in Nature Genetics, suggest that dietary advice may need to be more tailored to an individual’s digestive system, based on whether they have the genetic predisposition and necessary enzymes to digest different foods.

Monkey caloric restriction study shows big benefit; contradicts earlier study.

"We are not studying it so people can go out and do it, but to delve into the underlying causes of age-related disease susceptibility. It’s a research tool, not a lifestyle recommendation, but some people get caught up: ‘What if I did caloric restriction?"

Each of these studies cost millions of dollars and took decades to perform, and they are unlikely to be repeated, says Anderson — so all involved are trying to extract the maximum science from them. “We are now working with the NIA scientists to perform a comprehensive analysis of all of our data, taking into consideration the differences in study design, genetics, time of origin and composition of the diet.

The new study suggests the relationship between heart health and brain function starts much earlier, linking blood pressure and blood sugar early in life with mental acuity decades later.

Eat your greens son.

Fruit and vegetable intake: five a day may not be enough, scientists say

"Eating at least seven portions of fresh fruit and vegetables a day was linked to a 42% lower risk of death from all causes. It was also associated with a 25% lower risk of cancer and 31% lower risk of heart disease or stroke. Vegetables seemed to be significantly more protection against disease than eating fruit, they say."

There was a surprise finding – people who ate canned or frozen fruit actually had a higher risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer.

//Caffeine

Caffeinated,” a History of Our Favorite Stimulant

"It takes only about 30 milligrams of caffeine (less than a cup of coffee or can of cola) for stimulative effects to be noticeable."

Pure caffeine is a bitter white powder. In the body it blocks the effects of the molecule adenosine, a crucial brake on many physiologic processes. With just enough caffeine in the system, the body’s organs become a little more themselves: the brain a little brainier, the muscles a little springier, the blood vessels a little tighter, the digestion a little more efficient. With too much caffeine, all can accelerate into cardiac arrest.
