CircleCount52,441The people who have voted on our first pollCheck out the people who have voted on our first poll on CircleCount (http://www.circlecount.com/poll/1).Why are these people interesting? Because they are active! ;)We had a very good discussion with +Richard Hoefer and +Bearman Cartoons here: https://plus.google.com/+CircleCount/posts/AMbHGT3Qu1m and one idea was to feature a special group of people and not only the most followed or most engaging ones.I think this circle is not really what +Richard Hoefer meant, but it goes hopefully in the right direction ;)We like such unusual shared circles, since these people didn't act because we have offered to share them in a circle afterwards. They just did/voted/reviewed! ;)A year ago we have already shared a circle like this with the people who have written a review for our Chrome Extension:https://plus.google.com/+CircleCount/posts/6WCpwBTQxKj2013-04-19 10:25:26165772972

If I have you circled already, odds are you're already in one of them. (I keep 'em to 100 people max to avoid having daily add limit issues)If I don't already have you circled, and you'd like to be included, all you have to do is reshare this post publicly. The more exposure the better, right?Thanks to all for making these awesome#CircleShares possible. Without you, I'd probably still be stuck on Twittter. Thank you for that.2012-10-07 23:03:039811820

How does any President do this without the advice and consent of Congress? The Constitution expressly requires consent on treaties. And this is not a treaty, per se. But the current President is acting like there was no election in November. I hope Congress cuts off funding for the Department of State.

The binge watching payoff has arrived.

I've been watching Big Bang Theory for the past few weeks.  It is a remarkable sitcom.  And I'm so surprised that I never watched it before.  But since I started watching the show, it has been practically impossible for me to stop watching.  And the last episode that I watch has sealed my adoration of the writers, cast and crew of this show.  

In this episode, all of the stars (except for Raj) are confronted with the fact they are better people because of the people with whom they are linked.  I adored the song that Howard wrote for Bernadette.  And I couldn't stop myself from weeping (with a huge grin on my face) when Penny brought out all of the "collectibles" that she had been saving since the show began.  This is a positively superb episode.  And it may become a "go to" viewing experience onValentin... more »

Ten Things

I received a very unexpected social media request today.  A lady whom I dated a couple of times (before I met my wife) dropped me a LinkedIn invitation.  And as I accepted the invitation, I started to ask myself how I would re-introduce myself to someone whom I haven't seen in a few decades.  Consequently, I decided to dust-off the "Ten Things" list that describes me.  

This may be boring for everyone that knows me well.  But hopefully this list will help some of you.  Just writing this list helped me.
  
Here are the ten things that I would want anyone to know when they meet me and as they get to know me.

1.   I once was lost but now I'm found. I was blind, but now, I see. [John Newton]  And in a more contemporaneous vein, I am a child of the One True King. [Matthew West]

Ten Things

I received a very unexpected social media request today.  A lady whom I dated a couple of times (before I met my wife) dropped me a LinkedIn invitation.  And as I accepted the invitation, I started to ask myself how I would re-introduce myself to someone whom I haven't seen in a few decades.  Consequently, I decided to dust-off the "Ten Things" list that describes me.  

This may be boring for everyone that knows me well.  But hopefully this list will help some of you.  Just writing this list helped me.
  
Here are the ten things that I would want anyone to know when they meet me and as they get to know me.

1.   I once was lost but now I'm found. I was blind, but now, I see. [John Newton]  And in a more contemporaneous vein, I am a child of the One True King. [Matthew West]
2.  I am happily married man.  I am married to +Cindy Olsen​​​ - a gal who is every bit as beautiful today as she was on the day that we first met.  And while she is every bit as beautiful, she is even more lovely than she was when we first met.  We just celebrated our thirty-first anniversary.  And yes, love can grow better as you grow older.
3.  I have four adult children and three rambunctious grandchildren - so far.  Being a father has re-defined me.  And it has also re-defined my understanding of my Heavenly Father.  
4.  I used to live in a national park.  When I was a kid, my Dad was the assistant superintendent at Yosemite National Park.  And yes, it is every bit as lovely as the Ansel Adams photos.  In this venue, I saw the creative power of our Father on display for me to see whenever I opened my eyes.  As an adult, I remember this in a much broader (and far more intimate) context.
5.  I am legally blind.  Legally blind does not mean totally blind.  It just means that I get to be the designated drinker at any party that I attend.  [And no, I don't really drink all that much.  But when I do, it's gotta be single malt.]  But I have used my diminished eyesight as a simple litmus test for the people that I meet.  When I was young and still dating, I always knew that no woman would ever love me just because I drove a cool car.  And I learned that the best ladies didn't care about such things as they were willing to drive me!  Today, I know the folks I can count upon because they are the ones who I call whenever I have to get somewhere and I can't ride there on my bike.  
6.  Like most people, I have had to seek forgiveness for many mistakes, many ill-begotten deeds as well as my share of sins.  And for all of these, I am and have been eternally forgiven.  But I am an unrepentant geek.  I love technology.  And I have always had the joy of working in my fields of interest and expertise. When I'm not working with technology at the office, I'm playing with it at home.  I am still the resident geek throughout my family.  And I hope to continue in that role until I draw my last breath here upon this world.  These days, I am the geek who sets up streaming services for the entire family.  Every time I think about it, I have to giggle.  I have never had to rely upon my kids to help me with the latest gadgets.  I do those kinds of things for my kids - and I love the irony of it all.
7.  I am an electric 'roo.  It's a long story, but I have a cardiac defibrillator installed in my chest - and it has saved my life.  Since I am a child of the seventies, I like to think that I am just like Steve Austin (the bionic man) - but without the super legs, super arm or super eye.  And I guess I don't have the seventies hair nor have I ever dated Farah Fawcett.  But beyond these few items, we are the same.
8.  I am an enthusiastic cyclist.  Years ago, I might have said that I was a very competitive cyclist.  Now, I can only say that I am a very dedicated bicycle commuter.  Nevertheless, bicycling defines me almost as much as the other elements of my life.  Why would I say that?  Well, I've never driven a car - except for wild experiments in my youth.  But riding a bike is every bit as much of a badge of independence today as it was when I was a kid. 
9.  I am a socially and fiscally conservative man.  When I was younger, I used to wear the elephant costume in the city parades.  Today, I'm one of the people that still considers it a privilege to vote in every election.  And I believe that our country needs the same kind of fiery independence that it expressed when the colonists dumped tea into the Boston harbor.  
10. I hope that when I leave this world, I will have established a legacy of leadership - at my work, within my family and throughout the church.  While I am hearing the Lord say "well done, my good and faithful servant", I hope that my legacy will be that I inspired those around me to be the servant-leaders that they were called to become.  
So what does your list of ten things look like?___

Doctor Who meets real science..._

In 1961 (the year that I was born), the United States attempted a very ambitious project: Project Mohole.  This project, if successful, would pierce the Mohorovicic discontinuity (the boundary layer between the crust of the earth and its inner mantle).  These efforts were not limited to the United States as the Soviet Union was also working on a similar project.  

In May of 1970, the BBC released the last serial of the seventh season of Doctor Who.  That serial was entitled Inferno (http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/Inferno_%28TV_story%29) and it featured the Third Doctor.  And these were the very first Doctor Who episodes that I watched.

In 1961 (the year that I was born), the United States attempted a very ambitious project: Project Mohole.  This project, if successful, would pierce the Mohorovicic discontinuity (the boundary layer between the crust of the earth and its inner mantle).  These efforts were not limited to the United States as the Soviet Union was also working on a similar project.  

In May of 1970, the BBC released the last serial of the seventh season of Doctor Who.  That serial was entitled Inferno (http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/Inferno_%28TV_story%29) and it featured the Third Doctor.  And these were the very first Doctor Who episodes that I watched.

So why I am writing about this?  Because I'm finally getting around to obtaining and watching these episodes all over again.  And the marvelous fusion of science, history, and fiction that is Doctor Who helped to spur my scientific curiosity as well as my love for the sci-fi genre.  

We may never reach the Moho.  Or the Moho may be reached at any time.  [Note: The Moho Nord project is now underway, http://www.offshoreenergytoday.com/infographics-totals-moho-nord-project/]  But whether or not this scientific goal is soon reached is less material for me; this simple show launched a young boy's sense of wonder about the physical world.  Thank you, Mr. Pertwee!___

And so it begins.

We can expect gun control activists and gun enthusiasts to now rekindle their arguments about owning and operating guns.  But is anyone thinking about the child?  I can only imagine what kind of life this child will now live after killing his own mom.  God, please comfort this child and the entire family.  And please guide the politically-minded folks towards remembering all of the victims in this sad affair.   

Toddler who shot mom 'unzipped' special purse gun pocket

Concealed weapons are part of everyday life in Idaho, and that's unlikely to change in the Mountain West state despite a shocking accident in which a 2-year-old boy reached into his mother's purse, got ahold of her gun and shot her in the head inside a Wal-Mart.___And so it begins.

"You can't always judge from external appearances."

The year is coming to an end.  The kids are out and about celebrating something old and something new.  So I'm watching something old and something cool: Genesis of the Daleks. Tonight, I will hear talk of norms and mutos as well as Kaleds and Thals.  Terry Nation certainly had some novel ideas!

This looks a lot like the UVO system in my wife's Kia Soul.

Maybe it looks like it because the Kia Soul already uses an Android powered navi-tainment system.  BTW, her system is quite nice.  And with SiriusXM on-board, the entire experience is wonderful.

How does any President do this without the advice and consent of Congress? The Constitution expressly requires consent on treaties. And this is not a treaty, per se. But the current President is acting like there was no election in November. I hope Congress cuts off funding for the Department of State.

Um, WANT

Just when I though that there was nothing new in the field or cardiac rhythm sciences, I run across this little story. 

Next generation of Heart Pacemake can prevent Heart Attack and other Heart Failures

This video shows a rabbit heart that has been kept beating outside of the body in a nutrient and oxygen-rich solution. The new cardiac device -- a thin, stretchable membrane imprinted with a spider-web-like network of sensors and electrodes -- is custom-designed to fit over the heart and contract and expand with it as it beats

Unlike existing pacemakers and implantable defibrillators that are one-size-fits-all, the new device is a thin, elastic membrane designed to stretch over the heart like a custom-made glove

University of Illinois materials scientist John Rogers co-led the team that invented the new device.

He says they used high-resolution imaging, computer modeling, and a 3-D printer to create a plastic model of a heart. Then, they used that as a mold to make a thin, elastic membrane designed to fit snugly over the real heart’s surface

Rogers compares the silicon version to the heart’s natural membrane, the #pericardium  

“But this artificial pericardium is instrumented with high quality, man-made devices that can sense and interact with the heart in different ways that are relevant to clinical cardiology,” Rogers said.
Washington University biomedical engineer Igor Efimov helped design and test the new device.

He says the membrane’s spider-web-like network of specialized electrodes can continuously monitor the heart’s electrical activity and keep it beating at a healthy rate.

“_When it senses such a catastrophic event as a heart attack or arrhythmia, it can also apply a high definition therapy,” Efimov said. “So it can *apply stimuli, electrical stimuli, from different locations on the device in an optimal fashion to stop this arrhythmia and prevent sudden cardiac death.”

Efimov calls the new device a huge advance and hopes it will be approved for use in patients in 10 to 15 years.

Dear Lord,

Thanks you for the example that Sarah has given to me.  May I be as trusting and faithful during my journey.  And may my circumstances bring you all the glory that You deserve.  I merit dismissal.  But you credit your Son's righteousness to my account.  Jesus, how can I ever thank you for that?  

As the good Shepherd and my great physician, I commend my heart into Your hands.  May you heal my cranky heart.  And may I be an evidence of the grace and mercy that you show to everyone.  Use me however you see fit, my Lord and Savior.

How many times have you had to deal with a trial that seems so very insurmountable?  How many times has God given you the chance to proclaim His magnificence through your circumstances?  

Here is the prayer of one young mother for her precious new born child.

We stand together in unity to declare that beloved Ellis will live life to the fullness of what she was created for. Her brain will be completely restored, functioning at 100%. Every seizure will cease as healing is being accelerated over her life. She will live to declare Jehovah is God, and her life will be a light and testimony to the nations.

We declare that her spirit will rise up and lead her soul and her body. Ellis Claire Rodriguez, arise, shine, His glory is upon you.

First, I want to join my prayers to your prayers.  You struggle not about flesh and bone but against power and principalities that seek to discourage and dissuade you from your faith.  Stand strong, dear sister for your story is giving courage to those who are stumbling through their own life struggles (including myself).  

Second, I want to thank you for having the courage to speak so openly about such a devastating situation.  Your transparency is a reminder that we experience everything so that others can see His magnificence despite the grimy reality that our enemy has planned for us.  Each step you take towards Your Father is a further revelation of His glory to all of those around you.

Bless you and Ellis, Sarah Rodriguez.___

Heart doc wants to change up my  antiarrhythmics after my episode earlier this week.

Yup.  The doctor is recommending a switch to amiodarone.  The instant he said it, I heard me catch my breath.  Folks, I need some prayer support.  I either need to trust the doctor and trust God to be able to use this medication OR I need to draw a line based upon the information that I've head concerning this drug.  Right now, I'm thinking that I will trust my doctor.  However, I've having a very tough time having peace with such a decision.  

Please pray that the Lord will deliver a dose of clarity to me and to my family.

Lunchtime is the time to catch up on comic book gossip

Last night, I watched the latest episode of Marvel's Agents of Shield.  I really enjoyed the story.  But I was even more excited to know that with each week, we are getting closer to the start of Agent Carter, with Hayley Atwell.

I wanted to learn a little bit more about the Agent Carter story.  So I started to read a few recent trade articles.  And when I did, I ran across this little tidbit.  Bridget Regan will be part of the Agent Carter team.  That is great news for fans of the short-lived Legend of the Seeker series.  I have always wondered where Ms. Regan ended up.  I'm glad to hear that she finally ended up back in network TV (from her syndication days).

The headline says it all

I despise torture.   And I despise terrorism.  I despise fear.  And I despise thuggery - even to prevent fear.

The existence of these things does not speak to the political failings of any group or ideology.  These things prove the simple truth that what we really need is a Savior.  We need to change the hearts and minds of men.  And until the return of our Savior, it is our job to help change hearts and minds.  

So here is my question to you: what will you do to diminish fear and to promote unity?

Last night was shocking - literally

Last night, it had been two years since my last cardioversion therapy.  Today, it's been less than twenty-four hours.  

Last night, we had finished dinner and dishes.  And I was getting ready to settle in for the evening when I  got a text from Cindy.  We are working out the details for our trip to North Carolina.  As I read the SMS message, I started to feel dizzy - like when you are tying your shoes and suddenly stand up.  But this was not a shoe-tying incident.  

Then next thing I knew, I was on the floor.  I had hit my head on the wall as I fell over.  I freaked my daughter out.  Apparently, I uttered something like "Oh my" before she heard the thud.  She and her husband ran in.  They had already called 911.  So I told my daughter and the ER attendant to calm down.  I was fine.

Once again, modern computer and electrical technology had restored me from certain death.

But this time was curiously different.  I usually accompany such events with a little fear.  There was - and is - no fear.  At least, there isn't any yet.  I am so trusting of the technology.  More importantly, I am so much more at peace with who (and whose) I am.  I really have few concerns about what happened.  

Check that.  I still have to see the doctor tomorrow.  My biggest fear is that he will want to change my meds.  And since this requires hospitalization, I would have to forego my next opportunity to be with my bride.  I hope that this doesn't happen as I really miss my wife of almost thirty-two years.

God is good.  And He still has a reason for me to be on this world.  I don't know whether it is to make me more suited for my eternal destiny or whether I still have a few missions yet to accomplish.  But either way, I am still happy to be "in the field" and constrained by temporal boundaries.  

But each time this happens, I more clearly understand what Paul was trying to say in Philippians 1:21: _For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.____

What are the takeaways?

As I watch this exchange, I have a number of mixed feelings.  

- Mr. Gruber should be chastened for the horrible things that he said about the American voting public.  

- Congressman Gowdy would make a fine prosecutor.  At a few points, I felt sorry for Mr. Gruber.  And at a few points, I had to cringe at Mr. Gowdy's questions.  

- No person should have to live in the pressure bubble that is public scrutiny.  I have so much respect for those that successfully manage walking the difficult line.  And I have so much respect for what Plato referred to as philosopher-kings.  

- Did anyone (at these hearings) actually talk substantively about our health care infrastructure?  I really want to know what Obamacare is going to do to the doctors, nurses and healthcare institutions that will be delivering care to myself and my family.

I cannot imagine the feelings that Joseph must have experienced. He was not there to see the moment of his deliverance. But every act of care for his child laid the groundwork for what Jesus would do for him - and for us. Thank you for having the faith to trust God even though you wouldn't see all of the downstream consequences. May I be as brave in my walk.

Changing international allegiances is not something any President can do w/o the advice and consent of the Senate.  Call your Congressman and your Senator.  The President must never stand against Israel.  God forbid that we abandon them.  It will only embolden those who wish to unilaterally destroy Israel.

Global warming activists (not scientists) find a reason for the phenomenon that they have denied.

It seems that compelling data is forcing some to admit that "global warming" hasn't happened in the manner that was predicted by Al Gore (and the IPCC).  The current culprit is volcanoes.  They are what is causing temperatures to drop.  

This may very well be true.  But are the activists truly saying that noxious, gaseous emissions from volcanoes are substantively different from noxious, gaseous emissions from automobiles?  I thought that sulfur dioxide molecules and carbon dioxide molecules had the same effect - whether they came from cars or volcanoes.  Or is it the soot and ash?

Recent volcanic eruptions help explain the global warming hiatus.

If Obama has decided to exercise prosecutorial discretion and not pursue illegal aliens, then what prevents state law enforcement from enforcing the law of the land?  Can Texas Rangers arrest illegal aliens and hand them to ICE?  

And wouldn't this be an amazing thing for the governors of Texas and Arizona to do?

"For a president to toss aside such deep traditions of governance is a radical, imprudent step."

David Gergen nailed it.  Our President has acted beyond his Constitutional authority.  But the real issue is the manner in which he acted.  This was not done as an extension of existing legislative policy.  This was done out of wounded pride and petulance.  That makes this a tyrannical executive order - one which comes from a Roman tyrant.  This was not born of an emergency.  Nor was it the product of either legislative extension or the will of the people.  This is fiat - plain and simple.  

And our President should be ashamed of himself.

David Gergen nailed it.  Our President has acted beyond his Constitutional authority.  But the real issue is the manner in which he acted.  This was not done as an extension of existing legislative policy.  This was done out of wounded pride and petulance.  That makes this a tyrannical executive order - one which comes from a Roman tyrant.  This was not born of an emergency.  Nor was it the product of either legislative extension or the will of the people.  This is fiat - plain and simple.  

And our President should be ashamed of himself.___

So, the reason for why it is getting colder is that global warming is asserting itself even more dramatically.  The obviousness of this logic is positively compelling.

Let's build a society and culture that respects the law, not one that ignores the law.  If laws need to change, then we have a gentler means of redress than executive tyranny.  

Giving presidents the notion that they can pick and choose (discretion) which laws to enforce destroys the rule of law and leads toward tyranny.___Let's build a society and culture that respects the law, not one that ignores the law.  If laws need to change, then we have a gentler means of redress than executive tyranny.

But how do you measure what is right?

This simple message is so very true - and so very incomplete.  The law will never save you.  And our goal should be to do that which is 'right' and not just that which is legal.  More importantly, we should do whatever is right - even if it is illegal.  But what is our standard for right and wrong.

As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.  Our standard can be found only in the Word of God.
