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 10:25:26165772973CC G+

God's Not Dead Is Uneven But Provoking.

Meredith read one of my posts about God's Not Dead last week.  So after church, we caught an early showing of the movie.  Fortunately, I had a gift card that paid for the tickets and much of the food and beverages.  

The theater was empty.  That was to be expected.  After all, we went to church early and then caught the 11:15 show.  Consequently, the target audience was mostly at church!  Meredith, Quinn and I had prime seats.  and Quinn was in great spirits.  In fact, she giggled through much of the movie - to the distress of some of the other theater-goers.  

The movie itself was wonderful.  Yes, it is a movie that plays to the home crowd.  If you are a Christian, this movie hits the high notes that you would expect.  Faith is rewarded by ultimate vindication.  The arguments in the movie were good- albeit firs... more »

The new PB Cascadia fenders are finally on Black Beauty.

Once I figured out that I should bend the hanger on the front fender, the install went well. I'm now ready for Monday's anticipated rainstorms.

There is always help to be found - if you know where to look for it!

Yesterday, I got the new fenders in the mail.  I was so psyched.  But by the time I had the animals fed and the dishes cleared, light was dwindling.  So I hurried, figuring that I could at least get the front fender installed.

So I sorted the nuts and bolts and got to work.  I flipped the bike over - because I don't have a stand where I'm currently staying.  I deflated the front wheel and pulled it off.  I then removed the old fender.  And I put the new fender in place.  

But something was wrong.  The tab that mounts the fender below the fork crown was way too big.  I figured that I might have to do some major adjustments to the fender arms to try and nuance the fender in place.  Unfortunately, I had lost the light outside.  So I got the bike ready for today's morning commuteinstead - b... more »

If you believe, like Nietzsche, that God is dead, then how can you espouse any morality?  If we live in a system without God (and his moral absolutes), then what is the ontic referent?  How can anything be judged morally superior to anything else?  If there is no standard, then the "evils" that were committed by Hitler and Stalin were just another series of acts devoid of any moral context.

In the midst of a huge box office weekend, a little indie film sneaks its way into notoriety.

Captain America was big, really big, this weekend.  But a little film about a college kid versus Hercules (OK, it's Kevin Sorbo as a college professor) is pulling in some really respectable numbers.  In fact, it has revenues that are ten times the film costs.  That's pretty darned good in modern economics.  

Better still, the content is phenomenal.  This si the story about a young man of faith standing for what he believes despite the pressure that a prof can introduce.  I can't wait for it to open somewhere near me so that I can see it.  

Why do I care about this one?  Because I remember one of the very first times I stood up to a college prof.  It was a political science class with 200 kids and one very arrogant teacher.  He asked if anyone would standup and ar... more »

The latest beta of Playon lets you cast most online content to your Chromecast. Right now, I'm watching Agents of Shield on my daughter's large format LCD panel. I'm really digging the integration via Android.

I am not a Roman Catholic.  Nor do I believe in the supremacy of the papacy.  Nevertheless, our nation (in the form of our President) should have a little more respect for people of faith.

Yes, the pope gave a rosary to our President.  And it could easily be assumed that this gift was a gift to the people of the United States.  Indeed, any such gift must be registerred with the State Department.  And there are rules that govern its disposition once received.  But more importantly, it would be honorable to at least honor the wishes of the person who gave the gift.  

What?  Lorin, are you kidding?  That was a gift to President Obama.  He can do with it whatever he pleases.  Well, no, it wasn't and no, he can't.  It was certainly not a gift from the Church to Mme. Pelosi.  The Church (and the Pope) recently chastened Mme. Pelosi for her stances that werecontrary to ... more »

So much for keeping all options open.

The President has ruled out military action (including support???) in response to the Russian invasion of the Ukraine.  I'm not an expert on such things.  So I really don't know if a military response is either warranted or practical.  But I do know that when you publicly take options off the table, then you are limiting yourself and you are drawing the line about how far something can go.  To unilaterally take options off the table seems premature - and maybe even a bit foolhardy.

If you were an eastern European state, why would you trust anything that the West is saying?

By the time that the West decides what meager sanctions it may bleat about, the Russian leaders will already be in place in the new vassal state.  If you were a European leader, is there any way that the borken trust with Washington could be restored?

Google is extending to wearables.  Will their vendor channel play along?

Here is the cool video about what Google will be doing with wearble technology.  A platform SDK is being released shortly.  And I'm sure that a lot of stuff will soon become available.  But what about the biggies who've already announced their own devices?  In particular, this Google tech may well vacate the Tizen platform that Samsung has been working towards.  

Is this something that I would wear?  Sure - especially if I'm not just strapping a small phone to my wrist.  If this becomes a real platform for embedded devices, then I will be impressed - and I'll probably be a customer as well.

This is too good not to share!

I remember when RDJ was a younger star (and when he was living a more troubled life).  But I never knew that he could sing.  He absolutely wails in this solo with Sting.  Wow!

BTW, there is a great Top Ten RDJ moments reel from Watch Mojo that is pretty darned good.  http://youtu.be/F5TnelLoOjg  There are a couple clips of him singing that hammer home the point that RDJ really can sing.

My Black Beauty is getting some minor upgrades

I've been riding my all-black Surly LHT for four years now.  And I've always reveled in the "blacked-out" configuration.  But this past Christmas, I got some Ergon PC2 pedals which interrupted the clean/pristine look of my commuting rig.  

And then someone at the office had a Brooks B17 saddle that he wanted to sell.  So I snatched it up despite the fact that it was an antique brown color rather than the all-black of my current rig.  And despite the oddity of the brown saddle atop a black bike, I'm really starting to like both the look and the feel of the saddle.  Now I'll have to get some matching handlebar tape and then I'll be feeling even better.  

So once I get the matching bar tape, should I change out the panniers for something with brown accents?

Laws don't apply to the programs which are favored by our potentate.

Thank goodness our President can re-write legislation in order to bend it to the common good - as interpreted by himself.  I thought that the Supreme Court was the only branch that could do stuff like that!  ;-)

Somebody at Sprint finally gets it!

Softbank's CEO is now talking like price may be a motivator for consumers.  Duh!  More importantly, he wants to stake out a position being the most agressive price competitor.  It's about time that Sprint's leadership got to this point.  Congratulations, Masayoshi Son.  Maybe we may see some real competition and not just the standard government-endorsed duopoly.

The Crimean Parliament votes their distrust

In the nineties, the US provided guarantees of Ukrainian sovereignty in exchange for dismantling their nuclear arsenal.  They trusted our guarantee - and they abandoned the nuclear club.  

Now, the Crimean Parliament wants Russia to be their benefactor.  Let's set aside the fact that the Russians repopulated Crimea with Russian nationals as a means of asserting control.  Indeed, it is exactly what the Germans did in Czechoslovakia.  But why else would the current Crimean people vote for Russia to take over?  Fear may be the reason.  Russia has now shown the fact that it wants Sevastopol and access to salt water in the Mediterranean.  

More importantly, the West has clearly signaled that it will no longer support the Ukrainian people.  Faced with the cowardice of the West, the Crimean parliament chose to protectthemselv... more »

Our President has some harsh words for the only stable democracy in the Middle East.

“If not now, when? And if not you, Mr. Prime Minister, then who?”

These will be the words of introduction to a gambit that will pit Israel against the entire Western world.  I never thought that I would see such a day.  The United States may have served its purpose.  Through our efforts, the state of Israel was reborn.  But now, our President sounds as if we are asking Israel to relinquish its sovereignty and distinctiveness on the alter of "peace" and "cooperation." 

But these words (and the inflammatory posture that they represent) trouble me to my very core.  Will my nation abandon Israel?  Heaven forbid it.  May we come to our senses before it is too late.

"Ukraine, Syria, Iran -- America isn't leading from behind, it's being left behind."---

Putin has Snowden safely ensconced in Moscow, he’s calling the shots in Syria, he’s taken America’s place with Egypt, and Europe is addicted to his natural gas. 

His budget is in surplus and his coffers flush with oil revenues. 

His military is moving into regions the Americans are retreating from. 

He’s even sending warships to Cuba. 

History has a way of repeating itself, the Obama administration is looking a lot like the Carter administration. Only worse.

I can think of no more powerful confession than that I plead the cross of Christ. I deserve the separation. I deserve to be suspended between earth and heaven - never entering into Your presence. But by Your grace alone, I proclaim your worthiness and my utter insufficiency. Thank you for relieving me of the burden of my own sinful imperfection.

I am a 'whosoever'.

God loved me - even before I knew that He existed. Despite my selfish and undeserving heart, He cared enough to relinquish His life on my behalf. Now that I know him, I pray that I can think, speak and act in a manner which will bring Him all the glory and honor that He so richly deserves.

My precious and beloved Savior, how can I express the trust and confidence that I have through You and You alone?

In this moment, I sense your nearness.  In this moment, I glimpse a small fraction of Your magnificence.  May this shadow of Your reality carry me throughout this day.  And may I find my way back to this place each and every day.  And may I learn all that I need to learn so that I can be in this moment for all of eternity.

Apple and Facebook cooperated with the NSA’s tracking of user data.

The news of WhatsApp, the world’s largest messaging app, being acquired on February 19 by the world’s largest social network also has birthed a new App Store star. Telegram, a messaging app of humble origins, has surpassed WhatsApp in the App Store rankings, just five days after the news of Facebook’s buy. Other messaging apps like TigerText and Confide could also see a related boost.

It’s easy to attribute the exodus to a specific mistrust of Facebook, whose own mobile apps are not particularly favored and weigh in below Telegram, WhatsApp and even Snapchat in the App Store’s score chart. But it could also be a mistrust of large tech platforms in general, the result of Edward Snowden’s revelations that big companies like Apple and Facebook cooperated with the NSA’s tracking of user data.

Who says you can't change the GEL launcher?

So you want to change the look and feel of your shiny, new KitKat launcher?  But the settings are very limited.  If you're serious about changing GEL, then you can used a couple of Xposed modules to do the trick.  First, you can use the Unicon to change the icon themes for GEL.  Yes, you can now have some of the flexibility of Nova, Apex and the other advanced launchers.  And you can also change icon labeling, rows and columms and a variety of other UI settings by deploying the Xposed GEL Settings module.  Taken together, you now have a powerful way to extend the stock KitKat UI.

Debates rule and debate denialists drool.

In his recent Washington Post op ed, Charles Krauthammer warned that the "settled science" crowd is engaging in “...a crude attempt to silence critics and delegitimize debate.”  Before and after Krauthammer's piece was printed, the "debate denialists" proved his point.  

Folks, the science isn't settled because none of it is provable using the scientific method.  We cannot create our own world.  We cannot keep all other variables constant.  And we cannot repeat the experiment at will.  Instead, we have a debate based upon some scientific facts, some ridiculous assertions (and conclusions)  and some rhetorical incantations.  This is not science. Yet the debate denialists continue to prattle on about just how settled the "science" really is.
