Henry A. Otero (Hanko9)118,511The 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 04:00:0080

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

Origins of sex discovered: Side-by-side copulation in distant
ancestors
Summary:
A palaeontologist has revealed how the intimate act of sexual intercourse first evolved in our deep distant ancestors. In one of the biggest discoveries in the evolutionary history of sexual reproduction, scientists have found that internal fertilization and copulation appeared in ancient armored fishes, called placoderms, about 385 million years ago in what is now Scotland.

Carl Sagan - COSMOS - Evolution

Let's take a closer look at who our ancestors were.

A simple chemical circumstance led to a great moment in the history of our planet. There were many molecules in the primordial soup. Some were attracted to water on one side and repelled by it on the other. This drove them together into a tiny enclosed spherical shell like a soap bubble, which protected the interior. Within the bubble, the ancestors of DNA found a home and the first cell arose.

It took hundreds of millions of years for tiny plants to evolve giving off oxygen. But that branch didn't lead to us. Bacteria that could breathe oxygen took over a billion years to evolve. From a naked nucleus, a cell developed with a nucleus inside. Some of these amoeba-like forms led eventually to plants. Others produced colonies with inside and outside cells performing different functions. Becoming a polyp attached to the ocean floor filtering food from the water and evolving little tentacles to direct food into a primitive mouth. This humble ancestor of ours also led to spiny-skinned armored animals with internal organs including our cousin, the starfish. But we don't come from starfish.

About 550 million years ago filter feeders evolved gill slits which were more efficient at straining food particles. One evolutionary branch led to acorn worms. Another led to a creature which swam freely in the larval stage  but, as an adult, was still firmly anchored to the ocean floor. Some became living hollow tubes. But others retained the larval forms throughout the life cycle  and became free-swimming adults with something like a backbone. Our ancestors now 500 million years ago, were jawless filter-feeding fish  a little like lampreys. Gradually, those tiny fish  evolved eyes and jaws. Fish then began to eat one another if you could swim fast, you survived. If you had jaws to eat with,  you could use your gills to breathe in the water. This is the way modern fish arose. During the summer, swamps and lakes dried up. Some fish evolved a primitive lung to breathe air until the rains came. Their brains were getting bigger. lf the rains didn't come, it was handy to be able to pull yourself  to the next swamp. That was a very important adaptation.

The first amphibians evolved, still with a fish-like tail. Amphibians, like fish, laid their eggs in water where they were easily eaten. But then a splendid new invention came along: The hard-shelled egg, laid on land where there were as yet no predators. Reptiles and turtles go back to those days. Many of the reptiles hatched on land never returned to the waters. Some became the dinosaurs. One line of dinosaurs developed feathers, useful for short flights. Today, the only living descendants of the dinosaurs are the birds. The great dinosaurs evolved along another branch. Some were the largest flesh-eaters ever to walk the land. But 65 million years ago they all mysteriously perished.

Meanwhile, the forerunners of the dinosaurs  were also evolving in a different direction. Small, scurrying creatures   with the young growing inside the mother's body. After the extinction of the dinosaurs, many different forms developed. The young were very immature at birth. In the marsupials, the wombat, for example and in the mammals, the young had to be taught how to survive. The brain grew larger still. Something like a shrew was the ancestor of all the mammals.

One line took to the trees, developing dexterity  stereo vision, larger brains and a curiosity about their environment. Some became baboons, but that's not the line to us. Apes and humans have a recent common ancestor. Bone for bone, muscle for muscle, molecule for molecule. There are almost no important differences between apes and humans.

Unlike the chimpanzee, our ancestors walked upright freeing their hands to poke and fix and experiment. We got smarter. We began to talk. Many collateral branches of the human family became extinct in the last few million years. We, with our brains and our hands, are the survivors.

There's an unbroken thread  that stretches from those first cells to us. Those are some of the things that molecules do  given 4 billion years of evolution.

Russia: Man fights off bear with old computer
The encounter occurred at a rubbish dump in a village near Tomsk in western Siberia, where both man and bear were scavenging, the Moscow Times reports. The villager was searching for metals to sell, and was charged by the animal which was looking for food. Local ranger Sergei Yelnikov says the unnamed man threw the old computer, which was the first thing that came to hand, causing the bear to flee. "The villager hardly suffered at all; he injured his hand when throwing the device at the bear," Mr Yelnikov says. According to the RT television channel, a 24-hour search found no trace of the animal.

In AD 410, after almost four centuries of Roman rule in Britain, the embattled Roman emperor Honorius seems to have issued a declaration that the Britons needed to look to their own defence. What happened next is one of the greatest enigmas in British history and archaeology. Did Roman ways of life stop suddenly and completely, did they carry on, or did they morph into something new?

Summary:
Scientists have found evidence for a huge mountain range that existed in the supercontinent of Gondwana some 600 million years ago. It ran from modern west Africa to northeast Brazil, and as it eroded it fed the oceans with nutrients that fueled an explosion of early life on Earth.

Southwestern Paintings, Expert Says
Hallucinogenic plants were found growing beneath the triangle designs, including a particularly potent species of wild tobacco and the potentially deadly psychedelic known as datura.

Researchers believe that the plants may be a kind of living artifact, left there nearly a thousand years ago by shamans who  smoked the leaves of the plants in preparation for their painting.

Largest Pottery Workshop of Greek Antiquity Found
German archeologists have discovered the largest industrial quarter of the Greek world, during an excavation in Sicily.

Streching for more than 3,200 feet, the craft district relied on about 80 kilns for the production of ceramics.

“The largest one is 17 feet in diameter, making it the biggest kiln ever found in a Greek city,” Martin Bentz, an archeologist at the University of Bonn, told Discovery News.

Ancient Sailors Made Sacrifices on Ships
Ancient Mediterranean sailors performed religious ceremonies and sacrifices on board their ships, according to new findings from a 2,000-year-old shipwreck.

Using a deep sea mini-submarine, archaeologists of the Sicilian Sea Superintendency and Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) divers found the wreck and its cargo of jars at a depth of 420 feet in the waters of Sicily's Aeolian islands.

In the area of the bow -- a portion of the wooden hull is still preserved -- the archaeologists found a terracotta incense burner called thymiaterion. Consisting of a large bowl supported by a column, the thymiaterion had a base embellished with stylized sea waves. A Greek inscription of three letters (ETH) was also found on the base.

In the area of the bow -- a portion of the wooden hull is still preserved -- the archaeologists found a terracotta incense burner called thymiaterion. Consisting of a large bowl supported by a column, the thymiaterion had a base embellished with stylized sea waves. A Greek inscription of three letters (ETH) was also found on the base.___

Via +Gnotic Pasta 

The Siberian Ice Maiden, also known as the Princess of Ukok, is a 2,500-year-old mummy of a woman found in 1993 in a kurgan (mound) in Siberia. Now, revolutionary new scientific research has revealed that the young woman died from breast cancer, and suffered numerous other ailments. The research team suggests that this may explain the pouch of cannabis found by her body, which she may have used to cope with the symptoms of her illness.

Whales only taste Salty
some animals have lost the ability to taste one or more of the basic categories. Vampire bats cannot taste umami or sweet. Chickens cannot taste sweet. What about whales? They can only taste salty.
Which I suppose makes sense given the lack of sweets in the ocean.
