Henry A. Otero (Hanko9)131,003The 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/vikings Add the +Vikings Circle Page to your TV Show circles for show updates and...

NASA2,351,972Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. 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. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008336

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 05:51:49351364562

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.)

"Dogs' special relationship to humans may go back 27,000 to 40,000 years, according to genomic analysis of an ancient Taimyr wolf bone. Earlier genome-based estimates have suggested that the ancestors of modern-day dogs diverged from wolves no more than 16,000 years ago, after the last Ice Age".

Elfdalian is currently used only by about 2,500 people in Sweden, but is a treasure trove for linguists. Hidden between the trees and hills, it has preserved linguistic features that are to be found nowhere else in Scandinavia, and that had already disappeared from Old Norse by 1200AD.

It is considered the first true city in the world, the origin of writing.
Uruk
"Uruk was one of the most important cities (at one time, the most important) in ancient Mesopotamia. According to the Sumerian King List, it was founded by King Enmerkar sometime around 4500 BC.  Located in the southern region of Sumer (modern day Warka, Iraq), Uruk was known in the Aramaic language as Erech which, it is believed, gave rise to the modern name for the country of Iraq (though another likely derivation is Al-Iraq, the Arabic name for the region of Babylonia). The city of Uruk is most famous for its great king Gilgamesh and the epic tale of his quest for immortality but also for a number of `firsts’ in the development of civilization which occurred there."

"Inanna played a pivotal role in the mythological history of Uruk as it was she who stole the sacred meh from her father-god Enki at the sacred city of Eridu and brought them to Uruk. The meh were, in the words of Kramer (who first translated the cuneiform) “divine decrees which are the basis of the culture pattern of Sumerian civilization.”___

Plus more. I will also encourage heathens in the community to offer discounts and services from their own websites and businesses to other members. That way we can keep the benefits as well as the community growing, allowing us to raise more and more to help others. I'm tired of heathens being labeled as "evil" or "bad" people simply because you don't believe in a bunch of silly bullshit. I think it's time you show everyone just what you can do. I have about 35,000 of you following me across all my social network accounts, and I believe I can get enough of you to dig some change out of your pockets each month so we can collectively make some big changes. If you're interested, head on over to the site and submit your name and email to the mailing list and I'll keep you updated on new happenings with the site and let you know when you can sign up and subscribe. At the very least, please share this post with your friends.

Thank you,

A Deeper Sky

The James Webb space telescope is scheduled to launch in 2018. It’s often dubbed as the replacement for the Hubble space telescope since, like Hubble, it will be able to see distant objects with great detail. But the Webb has some significant differences because of its primary goal, which is to see deeper into the sky than ever before.

While you might think that seeing farther is simply a matter of better resolution, that isn’t quite the case. Why, for example, can the Hubble observe distant galaxies in detail, but can’t clearly resolve the surface of Pluto? It all has to do with the apparent size of Pluto vs a distant galaxy.  A galaxy can be billions of times more distant than Pluto, but it’s also much larger, so the apparent size of even the most distant galaxies is larger than that of Pluto.

A Deeper Sky

The James Webb space telescope is scheduled to launch in 2018. It’s often dubbed as the replacement for the Hubble space telescope since, like Hubble, it will be able to see distant objects with great detail. But the Webb has some significant differences because of its primary goal, which is to see deeper into the sky than ever before.

While you might think that seeing farther is simply a matter of better resolution, that isn’t quite the case. Why, for example, can the Hubble observe distant galaxies in detail, but can’t clearly resolve the surface of Pluto? It all has to do with the apparent size of Pluto vs a distant galaxy.  A galaxy can be billions of times more distant than Pluto, but it’s also much larger, so the apparent size of even the most distant galaxies is larger than that of Pluto. Hubble can see the Andromeda galaxy in awesome detail because it’s apparent size is about 6 times larger than the Moon. It is true that more distant objects tend to have a smaller apparent size than closer ones, but it’s not just resolution that limits depth of view.

To outperform Hubble, the Webb not only has to be larger, it also needs to be more sensitive at infrared wavelengths. That’s because the more distant the galaxy the greater its redshift. For the most distant galaxies, much of their light is redshifted well into the infrared. Since the Hubble telescope focused on visible and near infrared wavelengths, the most distant galaxies it can observe have a redshift of about z = 12. Beyond that and a galaxy’s light is too redshifted for Hubble to observe. We think the very first galaxies formed at a redshift of about z = 15, so the Hubble can’t see them at all.

As a result, the Webb will focus primarily on infrared wavelengths, and it will do so at the cost of seeing less of the visible spectrum. For example, its mirrors are made with a layer of gold, which is very effective at infrared wavelengths but actually absorbs blue wavelengths. So the Webb won’t be able to observe things at the blue end of the visible spectrum. It will, however, be able to see objects at redshifts of nearly z = 20, which is so redshifted that ultraviolet light is seen as infrared. The Webb will also be able to observe objects 100 times more faint than the Hubble, which is important since deeply redshifted objects are also much more dim.

In addition to observing the rise of the earliest galaxies, it will also be able to study dark matter and dark energy. Over its lifetime, Webb is expected to observe millions of galaxies and hundreds of thousands of distant supernovae. From this we’ll be able to get a better measure of these phenomena. We should be able determine if the universe is truly flat, and the role dark matter plays in the formation of galaxies.___

At the edge of a spruce forest in Interior Alaska, archaeologists have unearthed bone pendants that might be the first examples of artwork in northern North America.

Inside the oval of what was probably a hide-covered structure 12,300 years ago, a student working with a trowel found a tiny bone pendant with delicate crosshatching on the edge.

And the deeper message: Jasirah Bin Hitam wanted to face up to the statistic that only 13 per cent of Australians trust Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, according to a survey prepared by Auspoll. What a beautiful way to confront this.
And omg, no way I could have done something like this when I was 17!!

"One of the oldest brains ever discovered is providing clues on how the world's first heads evolved.
The over 500-million-year-old brain, described in the latest issue of the journal Current Biology, suggests that rudimentary brains emerged before defined heads.
Defined heads likely emerged later to protect brains.
The ancient brain belonged to a crustacean called Odaria alata, which had a pair of large eyes on stalks. Scientists also often say that Odaria alata looked like a submarine. You can see the resemblance more in this video.

Javier Ortega-Hernández, who authored the study, determined that the eye-like features were connected to a hard, thin and flat body part called the "anterior sclerite." The connection was made possible via nerve endings originating from the front part of the brain.
"The anterior sclerite has been lost in modern arthropods (insects, spiders and crustaceans), as it most likely fused with other parts of the head during the evolutionary history of the group," says Ortega-Hernández, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge.
For the study, he compared the remains of Odaria alata with another very ancient creature: a soft-bodied trilobite. Trilobites were marine creatures that were abundant during the Palaeozoic Era, 542-251 million years ago.
Ortega-Hernández next compared the creatures with anomalocaridids, a group of large swimming predators that lived at around the same time as the other studied species.
These larger organisms, like Odaria alata, were found to have a natural plate in the brain region.
"What we're seeing in these fossils," he says, "is one of the major transitional steps between soft-bodied worm-like creatures and arthropods with hard exoskeletons and jointed limbs - this is a period of crucial transformation."
The transformation occurred during what's known as the Cambrian Explosion, which was a period of rapid evolutionary innovation about 500 million years ago when most major animal groups emerge in the fossil record".___

The mystery behind radio signals that have baffled scientists at Australia’s most famous radio telescope for 17 years has finally been solved. The signals’ source? Not aliens. Rather, a microwave oven in the observatory's kitchen used by staff to heat their lunches.

Astronomers first detected the signals, called perytons, in 1998. Originally researchers assumed the signals – which appeared only once or twice a year – were coming from the atmosphere, possibly linked to lightning strikes. Then on January 1st this year, they installed a new receiver which monitored interference, and detected strong signals at 2.4 GHz, the signature of a microwave oven.

Immediate testing of the facility microwave oven did not show up with perytons. Until, that is, they opened the oven door before it had finished heating. “If you set it to heat and pull it open to have a look, itgenerates... more »

Immediate testing of the facility microwave oven did not show up with perytons. Until, that is, they opened the oven door before it had finished heating. “If you set it to heat and pull it open to have a look, it generates interference.” The “suspicious perytons” were only detected during the daytime and as they now knew, not during the evening when all the staff had finished their shift. The signals were rare because the interference only occurred when the telescope was pointed in the direction of the microwave oven.___

As part of this approach, analyses of the graffiti kept in the Spanish Royal Academy of History have just been started. 'Research focuses on the words written on the surface of these everyday ceramic pieces which can provide linguistic data, but also territorial and ethnological information', says the author of the work.

From sticks to stones—getting a grip on the human genus
2015 has already been an amazing year for human evolution science. We’ve witnessed an uncanny convergence of discoveries on the beginnings of the human genus, Homo, and all that it implies for understanding the evolution of a range of human characteristics, including culture and tool making.

Gigantic whales have stretchy 'bungee cord' nerves
Summary:
Biologists have discovered a unique nerve structure in the mouth and tongue of rorqual whales that can double in length and then recoil like a bungee cord. The stretchy nerves explain how the massive whales are able to balloon an immense pocket between their body wall and overlying blubber to capture prey during feeding dives.

Dental enamel reveals surprising migration patterns in ancient
Indus civilizations
University of Florida researchers have discovered that ancient peoples in the Indus Valley apparently did not stay put, as was previously thought. Equally surprising is how they found out: by examining 4,000-year-old teeth.

#onthisday  in 1227,  Sir Ulrich von Liechtenstein, dressed up as “Frau Venus”, began his quest of jousting and tourneying for the honour of his mistress in Venice.

Sir Ulrich von Liechtenstein, in the guise of Heath Ledger, gained recent popularity as a chivalrous pop star in “A Knight’s Tale” back in 2001. The real Ulrich von Liechtenstein was maybe not quite as popular, but a minnesinger from Austria of some renown and displayed at least a pop star-like behaviour. Nothing quite out of the ordinary during the days of High Minne, courtly love, in medieval Europe, but Ulrich’s tale is certainly stranger than fiction. Read for yourself on:
