Henry A. Otero (Hanko9)105,171The 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 04:00:0080G+

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 05:51:49351364561CC G+

M Monica0My 75 Secret Weapons Circle I don't often share circles, because I don't usually see the need.But this is the one circle I check most often, on a daily basis, and I end up resharing from it most often. So here it is, my secret weapon circle: Folks who post a lot of science like +Philip Plait  are in here, as well as +Rajini Rao  and +Betsy McCall  The insightful commentary and daily curated threads of  +Alex Grossman are important in my stream too, as is the humor of +Steve Barry.  +Natalie Villalobos is in there for her beautiful yoga pictures, which always relax me.  +James Williams for digging up the best articles and also funny pics.  +Chase Sterling  for her blog, +Melissa Carlson  as an excellent news anchor using Plus. +P E Sharpe  for her off the wall style humor, (and stunning art.)  When I look at this list I'm amazed by the quality of people I've been able to meet here.  This circle does have a handful of well known folks like +Mike Elgan  and +Larry Fournillier, +Amanda Blain,  in here. (Just because they're well known does not mean they are not high quality.) But there are also some pages you may not be so familiar with like  +Liz Krane, +Sonny Williamson, +2012-10-16 12:20:437525531CC G+

It is widely taught in the field of ancient history that Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, and India, gave rise to the first civilizations of mankind. However, few are aware that at the same time, and in some cases before these societies emerged, another great civilization had sprouted - the Norte Chico civilization of Supe, Peru – the first known civilization of the Americas.

An unusual type of fish that can walk and breathe air develops quite differently when it is raised on land, rather than in water. The study holds clues to a pivotal moment in animal evolution, when the first creatures moved out of the water and onto land.

Jurassic mammals were picky eaters, new study finds
Summary:
New analyses of tiny fossil mammals from Glamorgan, South Wales are shedding light on the function and diets of our earliest ancestors, a team reports. Mammals and their immediate ancestors from the Jurassic period (201-145 million years ago) developed new characteristics - such as better hearing and teeth capable of precise chewing.

There were, no doubt, many notable women in ancient Greece, but history books are usually silent on female accomplishments. Every so often, however, certain women performed deeds that the male writers of history simply could not ignore. Women such as Queen Gorgo of Sparta (c. 490 BCE) and Aspasia of Athens (470-400 BCE) have always been well known for their own achievements and for their association with famous men like Leonidas and Pericles, but there were many more who led interesting lives and performed heroic acts and who remain lesser known in the modern day.

Startup Sakti3 says its battery could double the range of a Tesla Model S

It’s been quite awhile since we’ve heard anything from battery startup Sakti3. The seven-year-old University of Michigan spin-out has been heads down working on a high performance “solid-state” lithium ion battery and on Wednesday announced that it’s produced a battery that can double the range of an electric car (like a Tesla Model S) or double the usage time of a gadget like a wearable device.

Seals and sea lions likely spread tuberculosis to humans
Summary:
Scientists who study tuberculosis have long debated its origins. New research shows that tuberculosis likely spread from humans in Africa to seals and sea lions that brought the disease to South America and transmitted it to Native people there before Europeans landed on the continent.

Richard III was bottle-a-day drinker, study suggests
A study of the teeth and bones of Richard III show the king drank up to a bottle of wine a day in the last years of his life.

The research by the British Geological Survey and University of Leicester revealed he also ate exotic meat including swan, crane, heron and egret.

Samples were taken from a femur, rib and tooth after his remains were unearthed in Leicester in 2012.

His diet was "far richer" than other high-ranking people of the time.

"We know he was banqueting a lot more, there was a lot of wine indicated at those banquets and tying all that together with the bone chemistry it looks like this feasting had quite an impact on his body in the last few years of his life," University of Leicester geochemist Angela Lamb said.

Do gut bacteria rule our minds?
Summary:
It sounds like science fiction, but it seems that bacteria within us -- which outnumber our own cells about 100-fold -- may very well be affecting both our cravings and moods to get us to eat what they want, and often are driving us toward obesity.

8,000-year-old mutation key to human life at high altitudes:
Study identifies genetic basis for Tibetan adaptation
Summary:
In an environment where others struggle to survive, Tibetans thrive in the thin air of the Tibetan Plateau, with an average elevation of 14,800 feet. A new study is the first to find a genetic cause for the adaptation and demonstrate how it contributes to the Tibetans’ ability to live in low oxygen conditions.

Researchers make breakthrough discovery about evolution
of spiders and their webs
Because of similarities in behaviors associated with web construction and the complicated nature of the webs, it has long been thought that all orb-weaving spiders shared a common ancestor. The study shows that spiders that weave orb-shaped webs are not all closely related and that the orb web was likely not the pinnacle of web evolution.

World's oldest true dolphin species discovered
Waseda researchers have described the earliest example of a true dolphin in the known fossil record. In an article published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, Waseda Department of Earth Sciences researchers (lead author Mizuki Murakami) conclude that the specimen, which was originally categorized in 1977 as Stenella kabatensis, actually belongs to the Eodelphis kabatensis species. This means that true dolphins existed 2 to 7 million years earlier than had been previously suggested by fossil records, and aligns with the results of molecular studies.

Can anyone confirm this? 

I should say that this is intended for educational purposes only.

But most of you are smart enough to realize that anything that can happen in a town with a population of 21,000 (let's pick a mid-western town at random, like Ferguson, MO), could probably happen in your town.

A furious international dispute has erupted over the publication of a paper that claims the hobbit man of Flores was a modern human who had Down's syndrome. The research has been denounced by scientists around the world, claiming the tiny Homo floresiensis, discovered on Flores, an island in Indonesia, is definitely a member of a distinct ancient species of hominins, they insist. #humanancestor   #humanevolution   #homofloresiensis

Not surprisingly, different people offered different opinions on the use of alcohol and the acceptability of drunkenness in Roman society. "What certain people said on the subject – and the context they said it in – reveals inherent biases in the authors and the effect of those biases on social structure. The differences of opinion revolve around major shifts in Roman society, such as transition from paganism to Christianity and the influx of new cultures that comes with territorial expansion. In a culture that made wine a central feature of everyday life, there was a constant desire to maintain order and balance. The distinction between the inebriated man and the habitual drunk was an important one. There were limits set on the quantity and quality of wine consumed based on status and gender."

Although the headline infers that a tomb being excavated belongs to Alexander the Great, the researchers excavating the tomb think it belongs to someone else. The city of Amphipolis (part of the ancient land known as Thrace) was fought over by Athens and Sparta during the Pelopennesian War, but, in general remained an independent city. Independent until Philip II (Alexander the Great's father) came along and conquered the city.

After Alexander's death, his body was originally destined for burial in Macedonia. According to ancient sources, Ptolemy, one of Alexander's generals, raided the funeral procession and took the body to Egypt (where researchers earlier this year claimed to have found Alexander's burial).

Although the headline infers that a tomb being excavated belongs to Alexander the Great, the researchers excavating the tomb think it belongs to someone else. The city of Amphipolis (part of the ancient land known as Thrace) was fought over by Athens and Sparta during the Pelopennesian War, but, in general remained an independent city. Independent until Philip II (Alexander the Great's father) came along and conquered the city.

After Alexander's death, his body was originally destined for burial in Macedonia. According to ancient sources, Ptolemy, one of Alexander's generals, raided the funeral procession and took the body to Egypt (where researchers earlier this year claimed to have found Alexander's burial). Even if Alexander's body had been buried in Macedonia, it is unlikely to have been buried in Ampipholis, which is in Thrace not Macedonia. It is suggested that the burial might be associated with Alexander's wife (Roxana) and/or his son (Alexander IV). Those two individuals were held captive in Ampipholis by Cassander (another of Alexander's Generals). Roxana and Alexander IV were killed by Cassander in 311 BCE, or about 12 years after the death of Alexander the Great. 

It has also been suggested that the tomb might belong to Laomedon, a third general of Alexander. Laomedon originally laid claim to the Syrian empire, but, was soon ousted from that post by Ptolemy. After escaping from captivity in Egypt, Laomedon made his way to Pisidia (located in what is today southern Turkey). I am not sure how his remains would have ended up in Amphipolis (or when exactly he died). Hopefully more information will be forthcoming on this excavation.___

Australia - Which state do you live in?

It wasn't always known by its modern name...

Take a look at this 1838 proposal for Australian states! Where would you have found yourself? Guelphia? Cooksland?

☑ There would have been 10 states, compared to what we now know are 7 (6+1 territory. ACT not included)

☑ Victoria was originally going to be in WA?

☑ Tasmania would have had crocodiles and Ayers Rock/Uluru instead of Tassie Tigers? The "Map of Tassie" also wouldn't be the same.

What a fascinating map this is, one that is definitely worthy of being included in the #AboutAustralia  series.
