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.

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.

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

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

Health Check: four reasons to have another cup of coffee

"It’s important to note that most of the research on coffee comes from population-based observational studies that measure association and not causation." 

Some like it hot, some like it iced, and some just don’t like it at all. Until recently, coffee was on the list of habits to break if you really wanted to be healthy.

Not anymore. Systematic reviews of the research – the most powerful method to weigh up scientific evidence – judge the current evidence as mostly in favour of drinking coffee. Coffee drinking is linked to a decreased risk of premature death, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer.

"For far too long, the people who cover this beat have treated it like gossip, echoing whatever they find in press releases.

What, no mice? holy cheese batman! :)

Swiss scientists plug hole in cheese knowledge

Holes that form in cheeses such as emmental caused by hay particles in milk and not CO2 released by bacteria, say experts

After about a century of research, scientists in Switzerland have finally solved the mystery of the holes in Swiss cheese.

Despite what you may have been told as a child, the holes are not caused by mice nibbling away inside cheese wheels.

Experts from Agroscope, a state centre for agricultural research, said the phenomenon – which marks famous Swiss cheeses such as emmental and appenzell – was caused by tiny bits of hay present in the milk and not bacteria as previously thought.

Diagnosing cancer with help from bacteria

Engineers at MIT and the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) have devised a new way to detect cancer that has spread to the liver, by enlisting help from probiotics — beneficial bacteria similar to those found in yogurt.

Many types of cancer, including colon and pancreatic, tend to metastasize to the liver. The earlier doctors can find these tumors, the more likely that they can successfully treat them.

lol. What's up with pterodactyl, Hawaiians?

The words every state finds hardest to spell

As the National Spelling Bee gets underway this week, Vocativ took a look at what words residents of all 50 states are most likely to try to spell-check using Google.

Hannukah is a popular option (possibly because there is no one right spelling). Fifty Shades of Grey seems to have sparked some confusion about how the color is spelled.

As the National Spelling Bee gets underway this week, Vocativ took a look at what words residents of all 50 states are most likely to try to spell-check using Google.

Hannukah is a popular option (possibly because there is no one right spelling). Fifty Shades of Grey seems to have sparked some confusion about how the color is spelled.

8 things you should never feed to cats and dogs

Veterinarians are finding that many of our most delicious foods, even healthy ones, can be deadly to animals

Many of us tend to think that dogs and cats can eat what humans eat. We often don’t think twice about giving them a bite of our cookie or worry too much when they scavenge for food. But dogs and cats don’t metabolize foods the same way we do, and many of the foods we eat without problems can hurt, and even kill them.

//Caffeine: EFSA estimates safe intakes

How much is too much?

Five espressos worth of caffeine could be damaging to health, warns EU

Food safety experts suggest up to 400mg a day should have no health consequences for healthy adults but more could be harmful

A 60ml espresso provides about 80mg of caffeine while a 200ml cup of filter coffee has 90mg, according to the EFSA. There is around 80mg of caffeine in a 250ml standard can of “energy drink”, 40mg in a 355ml can of cola, 25mg in a 50g bar of plain chocolate and 10mg in a 50g bar of milk chocolate.

//Commuting

Commuting for more than 20 minutes makes you 'stressed and cynical'

"It takes just 20 minutes of car, bus, bike or train travel to make you liable to chronic stress, which causes both physical and emotional exhaustion, and 35 minutes to make you significantly more cynical."

It's (more) bad news for commuters – research has shown that travelling for more than 20 minutes to get to work leaves you more susceptible to chronic stress, or 'burnout', and may even make you more cynical.

//High heels

Shoes That Put Women in Their Place

"Perhaps it is a tradition we can upend in the 21st century, when it should be clear that a woman’s power has nothing to do with the height of her heel."

It was reported last week that some women were turned away from the festival for the sartorial sin of wearing flats. High heels, it turns out, appeared to be part of the unwritten red-carpet dress code. Wearing heels changes how you stand, how you walk and how you are perceived. Even if they are visible only in small flashes, when a hem moves to one side, they are, in essence, a foundation garment: shoes that keep women in their place.

The heel has come to be the icon of feminine allure and even female power. But what, exactly, is this power and why do only women have the privilege of using heels to convey it?

Game For Ancient Grain: Palestinians Find Freekeh Again

"Freekeh has high protein and fiber content — compared to brown rice — and lower calorie count — compared to quinoa."

Freekeh is one of the Middle East's famed "ancient grains" — it's been cultivated in the region for more than four millennia. The word comes from the Arabic word meaning "to rub," which is how farmers stripped away the burnt husk from the green grain in the age before heavy machinery combines.

Traditionally, Palestinians have used it to thicken soups eaten on Ramadan and as stuffing for chickens. But in the last several decades, many Palestinians opted for cheaper, imported rice for main dishes.

HBO hasn’t disclosed how many people have signed up for HBO Now in the streaming service’s first month-and-a-half of existence. Apple CEO Tim Cook said HBO Now is “extremely popular” in the Apple app store, but provided no data to support that assertion.

Why you shouldn't drive slowly in the left lane

"There are basically two types of drivers: those who get worked up about people driving slowly in the left lane, and those who do it all the time and have no idea they're upsetting everyone else."

Lanes changes account for about four percent of all car accidents in the US, and perhaps as much as ten percent of accidents on highways. Meanwhile, research has generally shown that the strongest predictor of an accident isn't speeding, but variance from the average speed of traffic — and a car going five miles per hour slower than the surrounding traffic has a greater chance of causing an accident than one going five miles per hour faster than it.

good to know!

What Does 'Raw' Mean? When It Comes To Almonds, You Might Be Surprised

All California almonds — which would be virtually all the almonds in the country — are either heat-pasteurized or treated with a fumigant. The processes are intended to prevent foodborne illness. But almond aficionados say the treatments taint the flavor and mislead consumers.

In a warehouse near Newman, Calif., run by the Cosmed Group, millions of almonds are heated in huge metal containers. The temperature inside the chambers gradually rises to 165 degrees. The goal is to ensure through steam pasteurization that the almonds don't carry bacteria from the fields to consumers.

Advil vs. Tylenol. Which to Use, and When

Acetaminophen, which is metabolized in the liver, should be limited by people with liver conditions or who drink a lot of alcohol. Generally the drug takes at least 45 minutes to start working and twice that to see measurable pain relief. That may lead some people to take more than they should, said Mr. Tomaka, with the American Pharmacists Association.

“The problem with acetaminophen and why it’s the leading cause of acute liver failure is people take too much of it,” said Mr. Tomaka. “Add alcohol to the picture and you’re adding another competing drug cleared by the liver.” Many common drugs, such as cold and sinus medications, also include acetaminophen, which can cause people unknowingly to overdose.

Four Cancer Charities Accused of Fraud

Civil suit alleges ‘sham charities’ took more than $187 million from donors

The Federal Trade Commission, all 50 states and the District of Columbia have filed a civil suit against four connected cancer charities and four people running them, accusing them of bilking more than $187 million from donors from 2008 to 2012.

The Cancer Fund of America Inc., based in Knoxville, Tenn.; Cancer Support Services Inc., based in Washington; Children’s Cancer Fund of America Inc., based in Powell, Tenn.; and the Breast Cancer Society Inc. of Mesa, Ariz., were all described as “sham charities” in the 148-page civil complaint, filed Monday in the U.S. District Court in Phoenix.

More Proof That Gluttony (and Restraint) Are Contagious

Chances are you can remember a time you ate way too much in a social setting. It's really easy to do — not only are these the instances in which we're most likely to be presented with a lot of food, but they're also instances in which we're surrounded by friends and acquaintances who are also stuffing their faces.

_ A lot of research suggests there's a contagious aspect both to this sort of gluttony and to having friends who can control themselves, and a recent study in Social Influence nicely sums it up._

“With genes only thought to make a 25 percent contribution to the length of life and factors like lifestyle and nutrition making up the remaining three quarters, following these simple tips can really make a difference to how we age.”

Researchers in Norway found that elderly men who kept active – even with just a brisk or uphill walk for 30 minutes, six days a week – were 40 per cent less likely to die over the course of a 12-year study, than those who led a sedentary lifestyle.

The benefits of exercise are well-known but the experts behind the study said they were taken back by just how large the impact could be, even in later life.

Scientists discover first warm-bodied fish

Researchers have discovered the first fish that can keep its entire body warm, much like mammals and birds. The opah, or moonfish, lives in deep, cold water, but it generates heat from its massive pectoral muscles. And it conserves that warmth thanks to body fat and the special structure of blood vessels in its gills.

Cuban cancer vaccine to be tested in U.S. sparks a new scientific bond

International scientists have been experimenting with cancer treatment vaccines for many years, and one is already approved in the USA to treat prostate cancer. The Cuban vaccine, called Cimavax, attacks the problem in a different way, said Kelvin Lee, Roswell Park's chairman of immunology.

Rather than attack the tumor itself, the vaccine — already approved in Cuba and Peru — is designed to starve cancers of growth factors that act like fertilizers to help them grow. The vaccine contains a man-made protein, called epidermal growth factor, or EGF, that fuels the growth of tumors in the lung, colon and other organs, Lee said.

In clinical trials conducted in Cuba, most patients with advanced lung cancers who received the vaccine lived two to four months longer than those who didn't receive it. Patients who had the most EGF protein benefited the most, getting an extra eight to 10 months of survival, Lee said. About 5,000 patients have received the vaccine worldwide, including 1,000 in Cuba.___

Short On Sleep? You Could Be A Disaster Waiting To Happen

Missing out on sleep pretty much guarantees feeling crummy the next day. But it can also lead to dangerous or even disastrous decision-making. Sleep-deprived operators failed to prevent the Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown and the Exxon Valdez oil spill.

And during the Civil War, some historians think that Confederate Gen. Stonewall Jackson's confused command during the battles of June 1862 was due to sleep deprivation.

Short On Sleep? You Could Be A Disaster Waiting To Happen

Missing out on sleep pretty much guarantees feeling crummy the next day. But it can also lead to dangerous or even disastrous decision-making. Sleep-deprived operators failed to prevent the Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown and the Exxon Valdez oil spill.

Fast food kills gut bacteria that can keep you slim, book claims

The findings are the result of research into the links between gut bacteria and health conducted by genetic epidemiology professor Tim Spector of King’s College London.

He found that diets composed of a relatively small number of ingredients, most of which are highly processed, are toxic to these bacteria. In fact, many of them can die off within days of beginning such a diet.

Mediterranean Diet Boosts Brain Power, Clinical Study Finds

“This was the first clinical, randomized study using a dietary pattern for good health. This clinical trial removes the bias and provides first-level evidence.”

The Mediterranean diet, supplemented with a handful of nuts or a few tablespoons of olive oil a day, can counteract the effects of aging on the brain’s ability to function, a new clinical study suggests.

The study, published online Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine, was unusual in that it employed rigorous scientific practices to test the effect of the diet on health. Most previous evidence showing benefits from the Mediterranean diet was gathered through observational studies, a less conclusive research technique.

How to Eat Healthy Meals at Restaurants

Most meals at American restaurants aren’t healthy. They’re packed with processed food and enough calories to cover two or three sensible meals.

Yet it’s entirely possible to eat both healthy and tasty restaurant meals. And because eating out is one of life’s great pleasures, we’ve put together this guide to smart restaurant eating. It ranges from undeniably healthy meals — with a rich variety of foods, heavy on fruits and vegetables, light on sugar — to fast-food meals that are at least better than the alternatives if you find yourself eating at McDonald's.

//Sugar

Fructose May Increase Cravings for High-Calorie Foods

“Insulin is released when we consume glucose,” she said. “The pancreas secretes insulin, and insulin drives glucose into cells so that it can be used for energy. But it also sends a signal to the brain that says ‘you’ve eaten.’ Fructose doesn’t stimulate insulin secretion, and if there’s no insulin, you don’t get the information that you’re full.”

The study, published in the journal PNAS, found that compared with glucose, consuming fructose produced greater responses to food cues in the orbital frontal cortex of the brain, a region that plays an important role in reward processing. The fructose drink also produced greater activity in the visual cortex when volunteers looked at images of food, a finding that suggests increased craving compared with glucose.

Willpower (or Lack of It) Is the Wrong Way to Think About Weight

“The myth is that you can get thin if you have strong willpower, and you can’t get thin if you have less willpower. Basically, willpower is the thing everyone blames — it’s the first thing people think of and the first thing people toss at dieters when the weight comes back on.”

Protests on a Hawaiian Volcano show that Science need a New Ritual

A massive debate has erupted about whether to build a giant new $1.5 billion telescope on the summit of Mauna Kea. Native Hawaiian protesters have blockaded the site, claiming that the 18-story–high structure is being built on one of their sacred spaces. The governor has temporarily halted construction.

"The debate now about the Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea is not just about the specific location. It’s about a resurgence of Hawaiian culture and self-determination after more than a century of oppression. Telescopes were a part of that."

The Dodger: Floyd Mayweather and the Impunity of Genius

Given all the hype, it's easy to forget that "the last great prizefighter" is also a repeated batterer of women.

So there is Mayweather, the talent and the athlete and the entrepreneur, and there is Mayweather, the inflicter of domestic violence and the wager of psychological warfare.

Walking 2 Minutes An Hour Boosts Health, But It's No Panacea

People who got up and moved around for at least two minutes every hour had a 33 percent lower risk of dying, according to researchers the University Of Utah School Of Medicine.

"While many of us are getting standing desks to combat the ills of sitting all day, Beddhu says there's not enough evidence to confirm solid benefit from standing all day versus sitting. So he suggests even if you do stand all day you may want to add a spin around the office every hour. Day to day, week to week, it adds up, he says."
