Graeme McRae26,639Graeme's Circle of Active GooglePlussers! . . . This is a curated circle of active people on Google+ If you add this circle, you will see hundreds of new posts per day in your stream from this circle alone. If you’re in the circle (you’ll know ‘cause I notified you) then please reshare it! It's a circle of people I started following a few months ago, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of weeks since then. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream, read on. . .How did these people get in the circle?. . . They must have posted something interesting, at least once, because I don't follow people unless they post something interesting. By now, you're probably not surprised by the number of people on G+ whose pages are full of repeated posts, videos without comments, "what's up" and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since they were added?. . . After I add someone, I keep them in the circle of people I added around the same time. Then, several times a week, I go through all my circles and delete people who haven't posted (something visible to me) in the last 7 days. So the people who are left in the circle are consistent posters. That says something important about them, because consistency is a proxy for quality.Wait. What? Why is consistency is a proxy for quality?. . . I'll admit it: I don't have the science to back up that wild statement, but I'll tell you why I believe it to be true. People who post crap don't get a lot of followers, and the few followers they have don't bother to engage. After a while, the crappy-posting people start to think G+ is a ghost town, and they lose interest (or funding). On the other hand, the people who share (or re-share) interesting things get followers and engagement, slowly at first, but ever increasing, and this outpouring of love is what keeps them going. That's what I think anyway, and I'm sticking to it.People who share interesting things get lots of followers. . . This is another half-baked theory of mine, but hear me out. You might think this makes sense: Google+ offers suggestions of people to follow, especially to new users. Google+'s only source of names to suggest are other G+ers like yourself. The G+ers who have the most engagement are the ones Google+ knows will be good to follow, so these people get put out as suggestions more often, and some percentage of those suggestions are taken up. So the more engagement you have, the more Google+ will suggest you as a person to follow, and so the more followers you'll get. Completing the theory: the more interesting the stuff you share (or reshare), the more engagement you'll get, and hence the more followers you'll get.Do you punish people for unfollowing you by unfollowing them back?. . . No. Well, not directly. I only unfollow people who haven’t posted in the past 7 days. If you posted privately to your circles or your extended circles, and then you unfollow me, then I won’t see those posts any more, and I’ll assume you haven’t posted in the past 7 days, and, yes, I will unfollow you in that case. But if your posts are public, my methodology doesn’t care whether you follow me.How can I get in your circle?. . . Don't bother trying to "get into" this circle. This circle isn't for you to get into. Think of it the other way around. This circle is for you to add, so you can follow a bunch of interesting and consistent people. The stream from this one circle will be chock-full of fascinating content for you to reshare. People will star2014-06-02 08:37:4243910814

Sean Cowen43,829My Morning Circle: By Far, The Most Interesting and Unusual Circle I've Ever Created...In the beginning of October, I asked people to dig down deep and give me names of great people to add to a must-read morning circle. ( http://bit.ly/16ow9Cm ) This is the FIRST CIRCLE of those names. I have omitted a few names by my own prerogative and I've left off PAGE names as I'd like to create a separate circle for those. By and large, though, this list is the result of all the recommendations I received. There are more names to follow, as I'm still working down through the comments...What I Originally Asked of Anyone Leaving Comments and Recommendations...I'm looking for a SINGLE CIRCLE of pure awesomeness - a circle that gives me incredible content, insight, analysis, humor, a dose of the erudite, funny, sad, melancholy, happy - in short - I'm looking for one circle to throw into my stream that gets my days started off on the right foot.But I need your input. Who should I add to this circle?We all know the usual suspects (and some of those people will definitely be included if you recommend them), but I am seeking and searching for those little mentioned and possibly unknown to me people who will jump start my day.I'm not looking for popularity or anything specific - just let me know about the people you would include if you were creating this same circle. #circle   #coolcircle   #recommendedcircle   #circleoftheday  P.S. Added myself against my better judgement as I was chosen on this list as well. Now you know... :-)2013-10-20 15:53:26499612966

Dan Soto56,122Long Overdue Circle ShareFirst, and foremost, this is not a scientific endeavor.  Most of these were chosen by the "relevance" factor that Google uses but I would not have included them if they weren't relevant to me.  The others were hand picked from the rest of the people I'm following that are either;a) interesting to meb) loyal engagers on my postsc) friendsEither way, you can't go wrong with this circle.Add it now to spice up your streamNote: Many of you already have many of these people in your circles already.  Add it it anyway as there might be a few that you don't have.Also, there is to be no "butthurt" over not being included in this circle.  I'm the only one allowed to that :)ENJOY!2013-01-18 00:46:3115036922
Slavo Herman180I'd like to share with you the circle in which a little surprisingly I discovered my name. It is a circle with people who got one nomination to "Best of Google Plus 2012" created as the Circle No. 3 by +Kurt Smith.(He also created two more circles, No. 1 and 2, containing people with more nominations - you can find them at http://goo.gl/tAePD and http://goo.gl/7IBkV respectively :)2013-01-07 16:40:4448423115

Samantha Villenave510,146My 112 of 2012 (Who's in Yours?)Face it, if we're here, on G+, we probably spend a little way too much time on the Internet. I'll be the first to admit that being my case.These are the people whom I have interacted with the most, and have interacted the most with me for the past year. It's a mixed bag of a circle, but I can honestly say that I am very blessed to follow, and know a bit, each and every one of them.In this circle you'll find artists (painters, drawers, sculptors, illustrators and photographers), art lovers, designers, writers, geeks/developers, gamers, hangouters, googlers, and then some.  If you received a notification, then yeah, that means you're in it. And I just want to say Happy New Year to each of you. And thanks for the good times. I'm glad to know all of you, and I'm glad that I can even call some of you friends.If you aren't in it, don't worry about that too much. It isn't me, it's google's circle relevancy algorithm that picked these people, according to the time we've spent emailing, chatting, +1ing, commenting, and hangouting. You may want to check your own circles to see who your most relevant people are!Oh, and why not hashtag it  #my112of2012  if you do decide to share your own? It could be fun. :) #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  2013-01-01 19:13:0711248563
Kurt Smith21,124Here's The 'Best of Google Plus 2012' Circle Share (Circle 3 of 3)Last week I asked other plussers to name 5 Plussers they think should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'. They nominated others based on what they think makes a really good Google Plusser - original & quality content; makes you think, laugh, & enjoy Google Plus more; engages with others; shares and helps others; etc. We got 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.This is the third of 3 Circle Shares of those named the 'Best of Google Plus' - this circle contains those who got 2-3 votes. These are plussers other plussers think are among the Best on Google Plus and I believe we should all circle and consider following them because other quality plussers we can trust recommend following them.Like the other circles I've curated ('Thought Provokers' & 'Plussers Who Give A Boost') you can only get in these circles on the recommendation of another plusser (no "add me" going on here). So this is a quality group that should be recognized for making Google Plus better for all of us.Let's encourage quality on G+ and the best way we can do that is to Add & Share these circles. It took some work to put this together, so the best 'thank you' you can give me (and the nominees) is to add, share and encourage your followers to do the same.Circle 1 (those who got 4+ nominations): http://goo.gl/tAePDCircle 2 (those who 2-3 nominations): http://goo.gl/7IBkVWondering who nominated you?

A beautifully colorful showing at the end of a chilly (on the outside) but warm (on the inside) Thanksgiving Day. So many, many things for which to be grateful, but always at the top of my list is my family. This Thanksgiving was extra, extra special that I could be here with all 6 of them: Dad, stepmom, brother, sister-in-law and two nieces. That's really it, since both parents were only children, no aunts or uncles or cousins. Just us. (I sometimes refer to us as the incredible shrinking family ).

But, what a seriously tangible blessing to be a part of such an amazing group of kinfolk, and for which I will always be eternally grateful for the consistent example of unconditional love they show in their everyday lives, and for all they contribute to what makes me who I am today.

Second to them, I am also forever grateful for the extended family and close (and not-so close) friends... more »

Magna Carta story illuminated by discovery of medieval poem

The Melrose Chronicle, written in Latin almost 800 years ago, is an account of events at Runnymede.

A little-known medieval poem written almost 800 years ago by Scottish borders monks was revealed on Thursday as the earliest independent account of one of the single most important events in English history: the sealing of Magna Carta.

Particular thanks to all of you here for your loving kindness and support.

The folio, whose discovery was first reported by the regional French newspaper La Voix du Nord, is not the rarest book the St.-Omer library owns. It also has a Gutenberg Bible, of which fewer than 50 are known to survive.

But few books hold the first folio’s value — one was sold at Sotheby’s in 2006 for $5.2 million — or its mystique. It contains 36 plays, nearly all of Shakespeare’s output. Printed in a run of about 800 copies in 1623, seven years after the playwright’s death, it is considered the only reliable text for half of his plays. (No manuscripts of any Shakespeare plays survive.)

In the new, comprehensive boxed set Lead Belly: The Smithsonian Folkways Collection, to be released in Feb. 24, 2015, the Smithsonian archivist Jeff Place reminds readers of the huge historical chunk of American music that the legendary singer and songwriter carried forward via his 12-string Stella guitar. "Lead Belly is often spoken of as the 'discovery' of folklorists, but in many ways he was a walking and singing collector of American folk songs in his own right," Place writes.

MoDOT will halt temporary lane closures throughout the Kansas City area and the state this week to accommodate an increase in traffic due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Work will stop at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 26, and resume again Monday morning, Dec. 1. Still, some long-term lane and bridge closures will remain in place, particularly where bridge construction and repairs are under way.

Right. Wot's all this, then? I think we got someone else's delivery. This will all be melted by noon, but it's a definite sign that winter really is just around the corner here, too.

Have a happy HumpDay, everyone! And happy Thanksgiving Eve to all who observe.

And not just because we've been neighbors for like the last ten years, or that she and her then-fiancé (and guitarist in this video) asked me to officiate at their wedding (a few months before this video was posted).

Never mind all that. This woman can jam and she can flow and make it fresh and crisp all at the same time. Give this demo cover of Miles Davis' So What a listen. You just might want to crank it up.

'I have done nothing special...' — +Samantha Cristoforetti 
...
The three, who took off for the International Space Station (ISS) from a launch site in Kazakhstan, are set to stay in space until May 2015. They brought with them provisions including nearly a kilogram of caviar and an espresso machine.

The new astronauts join three others, including Russian Elena Serova. Cristoforetti's arrival means that it is the second time in the station's 16-year history that two women have been aboard on long-term missions.

Cristoforetti, 37, deflected questions about becoming Italy's first female astronaut during a prelaunch press conference from Kazakhstan on Saturday.

Well, +Samantha Cristoforetti said yesterday's prelaunch Logbook entry might not be her last before today's departure. How exciting and endlessly fascinating it has been to follow her training and preparations for #Futura42  and her 5-month stay on the space station. By now they are saying their goodbyes to close family and friends and preparing to get on the bus to the cosmodome and then placed in their seats aboard the Soyuz. The planned launch time is 20:00 GMT (that is 2pm Central Standard Time here in the US). Godspeed and good luck to the whole crew!

L-0: Launchday Logbook

Well, I told you that it might not be my last pre-launch logbook yesterday. I woke up a bit earlier from the planned 5-hour nap and there's no point in trying to go back to sleep, so here I am, sharing a few departing thought. The doctors will show up in about 40 min to start a series of hygiene operations: before going to space I'll be as clean as I'll ever be, outside and inside (if you get the message, I'm not going into any details here). 

I've picked up my computer and come back to bed. My last time in a bed for many months. Who knows if my body will miss it or will like sleeping in weightlessness. The nap has been weird: part of my brain was dreaming, part of it was awake watching myself dream. But that's how the past few days have been: part of me was living all the events, meetings, traditions of the past days, and part of me was almost watching a movie unfolding. 

Now almost everything is done. My bags are neatly packed and will be taken to their final destination by my family, the backup crew and the ever helpful ESA support personnel. Hopefully, it's all properly organized: part of the luggage will go into my landing bags, one for the nominal landing site and one for the ballistic site. Part will go home to Cologne, part will eventually find its way to Houston for my return. 

Email is set up with out-ouf-office replies: kind of cool to be able to write "Sorry, I'm off the planet for a while".

Many friends have made it all the way to Baikonur (you guys rock!): we've had a chance to spend some time together, albeit in the somewhat awkward condition of having to talk through a glass wall. I could have direct contact with my closer family, who have been medically monitored. All will be waving us goodbye in a few hours as we exit the building to board the buses to the cosmodrome.

In a day like this (well, will there ever be another day like this?) I feel that the most important thing is to say thank you: I've had many occasions to thank publicly the organizations that have made this spaceflight possible for me. But now I would like to say a more personal thanks to my family, my friends, my teachers, my colleagues, all the many people who have helped me arrive to this day, by supporting me or by challenging me, by teaching me something or simply by being there for me. I go to space with all of myself, with everything that I am and I have experience, and I certainly take with me every person I have met.

I'd like to share a picture that our backup, Oleg Kononenko, took on Friday as our rocket was raised on the launchpad. I can almost see my seat up there at the top!

Don't forget to play our #LaunchPadPlaylist along with us tonight around 30-40 min before launch.

All the best, and talk to you from space!

The global food system is broken: Many families can’t afford enough nutrient rich foods like fresh fruit and vegetables while foods and drinks high in fat, sugar and salt are cheap and readily available. Undernutrition and overweight are now problems affecting people within the same communities.

Global leaders gathered at the 2nd International Conference on Nutrition this week to commit to action needed to fix the global food system.

The winner of the Conference photo contest, Ryanwil M. Baldovino, was chosen by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Facebook fans. His photo, "The Green Season", features a typical rice-planting scene in the Philippines.

  #Futura42   #Expedition42  

Logbook: L-1

Well, this is likely my last countdown logbook (or maybe the second last). Over two weeks ago I told you about our final exams in Star City. In the meantime, the countdown is almost down to zero and it will be soon time to start counting up... from orbit!
 
Just to give you a few (mainly visual) impressions from the past few weeks:
 
... back in Moscow we participated in the traditional visit to the Gagarin's tomb on the Red Square, after a press conference and a visit to Yuri Gagarin's office in Star City, where we signed "the" book

https://www.flickr.com/photos/astrosamantha/sets/72157649166545521

...Tuesday last week, after a traditional "breakfast" where everybody gathers around a table full of food, but nobody eats, we boarded a plane to Baikonur to start our quarantine

https://www.flickr.com/photos/astrosamantha/tags/departure

...on the following day, we were up early to drive to the Cosmodrome to meet our spaceship: we were in the descent module both in flight suits and in the Sokol, practicing descending down from the orbital module; we did com checks; we reviewed where the survival equipment is stowed; we familiarize ourselves with our space vehicle

https://www.flickr.com/photos/astrosamantha/sets/72157649274818191/

 ...we planted trees (Terry and I now have our own tree on the cosmonaut alley)

https://www.flickr.com/photos/astrosamantha/tags/tree/

...we trained our body and our vestibular system on the tilt table and the rotating chair

https://twitter.com/AstroSamantha/status/536023881803251712
 
...we signed thousands of photographs

https://twitter.com/AstroSamantha/status/536024216684875776
 
... we went to meet our spaceship one more time; this time it was already in its shroud and after we left, it was transferred to the rocket assembly building to be mated to the rocket

http://www.energia.ru/ru/iss/iss42/photo_11-19_2.html
 
...we visited the cosmodrome museum and even the original little rooms of Gagarin and Korolyov

https://twitter.com/AstroSamantha/status/535354588757778432
 
...our rocket was rolled out to the pad

https://www.flickr.com/photos/astrosamantha/tags/rollout

...we had a meeting with representatives of the search and rescue teams, hundreds of people and dozens of assets deployed along the ground track of our ascent all the way to the Pacific to rescue us in case of need; and also ready to rescue us back in Kazakhstan should we need to do an emergency landing in the following few orbits.
 
...we had a meeting with the ballistic group, giving us the latest information from their side.
 
To spend a few more words on that: if you're counting down to the second, you might want to know that start has been moved by one second to 00:01:14 Moscow time (that's 21:01:14 GMT, but we use Moscow local time on the Soyuz), with a maximum acceptable delay of 10 seconds. The rocket will burn for 528 seconds, thus inserting us into a slightly elliptical orbit with an average altitude of 220km. The phase angle will be about 25°, which means that we will be 25° behind the Station. Since we'll be also about 200km lower, we will be faster and catching up (that's orbital mechanics for you). 25° is a bit less than the ideal phase angle of 30°, so we will have to raise our orbit quite a bit: we don't want to catch up with Station too fast!


About 45 min after launch and then again about 45 min later we will give engine burns of over 30m/s each that will raise our orbit and, that's the magic of orbital mechanics, also slow us down closer to the speed of ISS. 
 
Later we'll have two more small correction burns to completely fix our orbit and then, about 3 hours and 45 min from launch we'll start the rendezvous sequence with the Station, progressively raising our orbit to Station altitude and diminishing our relative speed (at docking, it will be only about 8 cm/sec!). At about the same time the Station will maneuver to turn around 180° and put the Russian segment in the direction in flight: in the very last portion of rendezvous, we will actually fly ahead of the Station, so in the final approach we'll be flying in front of it.
 
Docking is planned for 5:53 Moscow time (02:53 GMT) when we'll be about to cross the equator off the Western coast of South America. But probably we'll dock a bit early: once we're aligned and station keeping at 150m from our docking port, most likely Mission Control Moscow will give us permission to give the final approach command a bit earlier. 
 
But the way, due to maintenance work at the usual Pad 1, we will launch from Pad 31. Since we can not go to the rollout as prime crew, I'll see it for the first time on launch night...ehm, tomorrow!

Here's a picture of the traditional blessing of the rocket this morning.
