Henry A. Otero (Hanko9)120,295The HISTORY® original series Vikings transports us to the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore—and raid—the distant shores across the ocean. His ambition puts him at odds with local chieftain Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Byrne), who insists on sending his raiders to the impoverished east rather than the uncharted west. When Ragnar teams up with his boat builder friend Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) to craft a new generation of intrepid ships capable of conquering the rough northern seas, the stage is set for conflict.But for all its warfare and bloodshed, Vikings is also a story of family and brotherhood, capturing the love and affection between Ragnar and his wife, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), a respected warrior in her own right. It is the tale of Ragnar’s brother Rollo (Clive Standen), a fierce fighter who simmers with jealously; of Earl Haraldson’s wife Siggy (Jessalyn Gilsig), a dutiful beauty who may be less than loyal; and of the monk Athelstan (George Blagden), whose Christian morals clash with the Vikings’ pagan society. As ambition and innovation rattle a civilization, these characters will be put to the test—and their way of life will never be the same again.Vikings was created and written by Michael Hirst (Elizabeth, The Tudors).Vikings, HISTORY's first scripted series, premieres Sunday 3.3.13 at 10/9c.http://history.com/vikingsAdd the +Vikings Circle Page to your TV Show circles for show updates and...Join the Vikings G+ Community to discuss the show and each episode!https://plus.google.com/communities/114114270073600513051#Vikings  Vikings [Series Premiere]2013-03-04 04:00:0081

This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth.During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground.

Graeme McRae30,763Graeme'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 in May, 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 is 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.Do you promise me there won’t be any spammers in this circle?. . . No, I can’t make that promise for 2 reasons. First, one person’s spam is another person’s interesting post. A plumbing contractor who posts fascinating details of pipe fitting, each with a link to his company’s website might go either way. Second, a clever spammer will intersperse interesting posts with annoying spam -- maybe 52014-08-12 05:51:49351364762

Working at the edge of a coal mine in India, a team of Johns Hopkins researchers and colleagues have filled in a major gap in science's understanding of the evolution of a group of animals that includes horses and rhinos. That group likely originated on the subcontinent when it was still an island headed swiftly for collision with Asia, the researchers report.

Add It Up: The Average American Family Pays $6,000 a Year in Subsidies to Big Business.
Just $36 towards the food stamps program

We don't have a money problem, we are actually one of the richest countries in the world. We have a spending priorities problem where we dump our national treasure into the coffers of big corporations, and most of that money trickles up to the richest 1% instead of helping working folks that create that wealth in the first place with their labor.

The great Victorian beard craze
The beard fashion of the past 10 years on both sides of the Atlantic mirrors an earlier facial hair craze, which started during the Crimean War, lasted for three decades, and was only entirely stamped out with the invention of the disposable razor in the early 1900s, writes Lucinda Hawksley.

Latrines, sewers show varied ancient Roman diet
Archaeologists picking through latrines, sewers, cesspits and trash dumps at Pompeii and Herculaneum have found tantalizing clues to an apparently varied diet there before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius destroyed those Roman cities in 79 A.D.

Is this what Siberian men used to shave in 2,000BC?
A rudimentary razor blade used by fashion-conscious men 4,000 years ago has been unearthed on the site of an ancient settlement in Siberia. Archaeologists found the Bronze Age bathroom accessory during an expedition to the Vengerovo region of Novosibirsk.

The thin bronze plate had been sharpened on both sides and experts believe it was used to trim beards and cut hair, and may have doubled up as a knife.

What is particularly interesting about the find is that razors were only starting to become popular in the Bronze Age as males put a stamp on their individual identities.

Vyacheslav Molodin, the deputy head of the Siberian Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography, said experts were excited by the find in the Vengerovo region, the first such discovery here.

Vyacheslav Molodin, the deputy head of the Siberian Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography, said experts were excited by the find in the Vengerovo region, the first such discovery here.

He said: 'The site was long ago classified as belonging to the developed Bronze era but the bronze object was the first found there. It is a thin bronze plate, sharpened on all sides. [Razor] is a draft name for the object and we shouldn't understand that it was an instrument they only used for shaving. More likely it was a more universally-used tool.'

Razors were used by men in many Bronze Age cultures and, generally, they were made of bronze and were oval in shape but had sharp edges. And while the use of an object for shaving dates back to prehistoric times -  shark teeth, clam shells and sharpened flint were also used - they started to become popular in the Bronze Age.___

Bacteria become 'genomic tape recorders', recording chemical
exposures in their DNA
Summary:
Engineers have transformed the genome of the bacterium E. coli into a long-term storage device for memory. They envision that this stable, erasable, and easy-to-retrieve memory will be well suited for applications such as sensors for environmental and medical monitoring.

Thousands of never-before-seen human genome variations
uncovered
Summary:
Thousands of never-before-seen genetic variants in the human genome have been uncovered using a new genome sequencing technology. These discoveries close many human genome mapping gaps that have long resisted sequencing. The technique, called single-molecule, real-time DNA sequencing, may now make it possible for researchers to identify potential genetic mutations behind many conditions whose genetic causes have long eluded scientists.

Archaeologists unearth 5,000-year-old footprints
Archaeologists working on the excavations for the Femern Bælt Tunnel have discovered several well-preserved footprints dating back to the Stone Age.

The prints were left by fishermen looking to safeguard their weirs (river barriers used for fishing) in a storm 5,000 years ago, announced Lolland-Falster Museum.

"It is quite surreal to have found human footprints," said archaeologist Terje Stafseth in a press release.

"We normally find historical clues in the form of human waste, but here we have found an entirely different clue and a first in Danish archaeology: a physical print left behind by a human."

"An ancient shrub that grows on only one island in the world has inexplicably swallowed up six mitochondrial genomes' worth of DNA, puzzling scientists and perhaps shedding light on the “junk” DNA that bloats the human genome.
For reasons scientists can only guess at, Amborella has ingested the entire mitochondrial genomes of a moss and three green algae plus several hundred miscellaneous genes from another alga and from an undetermined number of flowering plants.

"An ancient shrub that grows on only one island in the world has inexplicably swallowed up six mitochondrial genomes' worth of DNA, puzzling scientists and perhaps shedding light on the “junk” DNA that bloats the human genome.
For reasons scientists can only guess at, Amborella has ingested the entire mitochondrial genomes of a moss and three green algae plus several hundred miscellaneous genes from another alga and from an undetermined number of flowering plants. The hoard is orders of magnitude larger than what's been found in any other plant before. “The native genes are outnumbered by the foreign genes six to one,” says Jeffrey Palmer, a biologist at Indiana University Bloomington and corresponding author of the paper that reported the results in Science last December. “Nothing like this has ever been seen before. So that was utterly shocking.”
Dan Sloan, assistant professor of biology at Colorado State University who studies the evolution of mitochondrial DNA and was not involved in this study, says he found the results exciting. “It adds to a long list of amazing and downright strange things about plant mitochondrial genomes,” he says.
Mitochondria—organelles that convert food into energy cells can use—are the product of an engulfment of bacteria by ancient cells that would ultimately evolve into large multicellular life-forms. Mitochondria still retain evidence of their formerly independent lives, including their own DNA.
Amborella is an evergreen shrub with small white flowers that grows only on Grande Terre, an island in New Caledonia, a Pacific archipelago under France’s jurisdiction located more than 1,125 kilometers east of Australia. Amborella diverged from the rest of the flowering plants some 200 million years ago and is likely the first flowering plant that still survives today to have done so. That makes it an important organism for studying Darwin’s “abominable mystery” – the sudden evolution of flowering plants".___

The AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has been charged in New Zealand with attempting to procure murder, threatening to kill and possession of drugs.

The 60-year-old was the subject of a raid in the North Island on Thursday morning and appeared in Tauranga district court in the afternoon.

He said nothing during his brief court appearance and wore no shoes. He did not apply to suppress his name and was bailed until 27 November.

He had been charged with attempting to procure murder, threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and cannabis and has been ordered to stay in Tauranga and to have no contact with anyone related to the charge of procuring murder as part of his bail conditions.

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd charged with attempting to procure
murder
The AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has been charged in New Zealand with attempting to procure murder, threatening to kill and possession of drugs.

The 60-year-old was the subject of a raid in the North Island on Thursday morning and appeared in Tauranga district court in the afternoon.

He said nothing during his brief court appearance and wore no shoes. He did not apply to suppress his name and was bailed until 27 November.

He had been charged with attempting to procure murder, threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and cannabis and has been ordered to stay in Tauranga and to have no contact with anyone related to the charge of procuring murder as part of his bail conditions.

According to court documents, Rudd is accused of attempting to hire one person to kill two others between 25 September and 26 September.
He is also accused of threatening to kill a complainant on 26 September.

Rudd refused to talk to media gathered at the court and left in a late model Mercedes sedan, the New Zealand Herald reported.

Rudd was a notable absentee from AC/DC’s recent promotional material in the lead-up to the release of the band’s first album in six years.

The first image released to promote the album, Rock or Bust, did not feature Rudd and he was absent from two video shoots over the past few months.

Lead singer Brian Johnson reportedly told fans Rudd was not at one of the video shoots because of a “family emergency”.

Biographer Jesse Fink, author of the new book, The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC, told the Daily Mail Australia he was “absolutely stunned” by the charges.

Fink said Rudd had “deteriorated” in recent years. “You go back and you see photos of Phil from the ’70s, he’s a beautiful man, a very handsome man.”

Australian-born Rudd has lived in Tauranga for a number of years.

AC/DC have announced they will launch Rock or Bust from the New South Wales town The Rock on 23 November.

Rock or Bust is the band’s first album of original material since Black Ice was released six years ago. Founding guitarist Malcolm Young recently left the band after his family announced he had developed dementia.

Rudd joined AC/DC in 1975. He was dropped in 1983, but rejoined in 1994.___

Seeing dinosaur feathers in a new light
Summary:
Why were dinosaurs covered in a cloak of feathers long before the early bird species Archaeopteryx first attempted flight? Researchers postulate that these ancient reptiles had a highly developed ability to discern color. Their hypothesis: The evolution of feathers made dinosaurs more colorful, which in turn had a profoundly positive impact on communication, the selection of mates and on dinosaurs’ procreation.

Proposal to rebuild arena floor of Rome's Colosseum
Italy's culture minister has backed a proposal to rebuild the floor of Rome's Colosseum, allowing visitors to stand in the arena where gladiators once fought.
In ancient times, a wooden floor covered with sand was built on top of tunnels through which animals, fighters or performers were brought into the arena. For more than a century, this underground structure has been exposed. Italian archaeologist Daniele Manacorda suggested in July that a floor should be put back in the Colosseum. Not only would tourists appreciate it, but the amphitheatre could again be used to stage events, Manacorda wrote in the July issue of "Archeo" archaeological journal. "I like (the idea) very much," Culture Minister Darion Franceschini wrote on Twitter on Sunday. "All is needed is a bit of courage." The Colosseum is... more »

The Colosseum is currently undergoing a privately funded restoration, one of several projects in Italy meant to save its cultural landmarks from decay as money from the government dwindles.

Ireland’s ‘oldest known separate map’ expected to fetch €3 million
The oldest known separate individual map of the island of Ireland has come to light in a 600-year-old atlas which is expected to sell for more than €3 million at auction in London next month.
Christie’s auctioneers said the extraordinary 15th century map – “aptly bordered in bright green” – was the oldest known separate, individual map of the island.
The map is the first depiction of Ireland alone rather than together with Britain.
