Bearman Cartoons73,859People Who Paid Attention to My July 1 Morning PostThis morning I posted a benign comment with no image wondering if people are engaged in G+ without images.  I said I would share a circle of anyone that commented and surprisingly many did.  OP: https://plus.google.com/103857459148999991693/posts/ThcDtFipGTDSO WHY SHOULD I CARE?You may ask.  I don't recommend ever blindly adding an entire group of people shared in a circle.  However, so many complain about the Ghost town of G+ where engagement is rare.  These are obviously people who are engaged in the platform.  So pick 5-10 and take a look at their profile.  If you like what you see, circle them and tell them I sent you.  If you don't, move on.What I learned- Circle shares aren't dead.  While many have been lost in communities there is still a place for specific, targeted Circle Shares on G+- Some of my commenters still think they are snarkier than me :)2014-07-01 23:04:169952454CC G+

Armando Lioss44,378“Active Engagers Shared Circle” 6.1Also known as the “Circle of Rivals” conformed by G+ users ready to stand for their points of view in an educated discussion and/or extending the discussion to their own streams... if you are looking into making your stream more dynamic, these are the guys you want to include... they are a diverse bunch of great plussers that includes liberals, progressives, conservatives, libertarians, religious, agnostics, atheists… from all around the world.In this shared circle you will find some interesting people to add to your circles, all of these G+ users currently actively engage my stream as well as other G+ users posts, so you can be sure they are getting involved in the Google Plus community.This “Active Engagers Shared Circle” version has been built with an improved algorithm that will filter occasional users and those that use hate speech or other nuisances to the common user. The main purpose of this series of Shared Circles is to expose new G+ users that are active engagers, but you may find even first generation ones in them.If you do not wish to be included in my future shared circles, please let me know with a comment to this post. I will remove you from any future shared circle I create, but I will keep you in my G+ circles.For TIPS TO GET PEOPLE TO CIRCLE YOU you may want to check:https://plus.google.com/u/0/111635150542674847021/posts/Q6c3ikBhdT3Thank you for your help making Google Plus adventure and exhilarating one… #activeusers   #engagers   #engagerscircle   #commenters   #topcircles  #circlesunday  Disclaimer: I don’t necessarily share or identify with the views of these G+ users, in fact with some of them we have completely antagonistic points of view and dissimilar interests…2014-04-07 15:38:3241991214CC G+

Kristofer Dankovits464Just a circle of people I enjoy reading who are like me, liberal and atheist.  These people either self identify as such, or I put them in this circle based upon their posts.  I have some more people to add, but I figure I might as well share what I've got so far. (My first shared circle.  Yay!)2014-01-07 18:48:5576205CC G+

Markos Giannopoulos13,655Engagers VI: Christmas edition // It's a festive season so my monthly "round-up & thank you" circle is on the right mood!First some stats on people who engaged me (gathered via +Circloscope) and on my posts (tracked by +CircleCount):September: 620 plussers, 93 commentators and 86 sharers on 32 posts for a total of 745 +1s, 74 re-shares and 117 comments October: 395 plussers, 33 commentators and 39 sharers on 43 posts for a total of 1057 +1s, 80 re-shares and 165 comments November: 616 plussers, 114 commentators and 176 sharers on 32 posts for a total of 1109 +1s, 234 re-shares and 227 commentsA great month fuelled by two posts: 6+1 WordPress initial-setup plugins  (http://bit.ly/1bKXVgX 359 +1s, 59 comments, 183 re-shares) and Ode à Eiffel (http://bit.ly/1heptNZ 46 +1s, 4 comments, 5 re-shares). If I wanted to get "analytical" about it, it was two posts with some decent value (helpful list of plugins in one case on a every-day issue for a WordPress developer and an album of 18 original photos of night Paris on the other) :) So on to the circle: the formula for this month is - Plussers who are on over 3 engagers circles (so basically who have engaged with me in previous months as well this one)  - Sharers and commentators - A few kind highly-engaging people who have shared original circles including me. - People with over 300 in G+'s "relevance score" (as reported by +Circloscope), e.g. the people Google considers that I interact more and post similar content to mine (or of my interest)All in all, this came to a healthy group of 340 content creators and real engagers interested in technology and photography. Feel free to add them! As usual, stats and circle creation for this post were only made possible thanks to +CircleCount and +Circloscope. #engagers   #circleshare #circlesharing   #circleversary #milestone #googleplus #circleoftheday #circleplus #public #publiccircles 2013-12-16 17:49:57340441178CC G+

Circle Distribution0And then there was the RANDOMNESS  #CircleOfRandomness v5.0(Not to be confused with   #CircleYouShare  which will be revamped separately, hopefully based on equal shares to individuals)Just because I think #YoureAwseome  I have included you in this random circle share, separate from my "A Wonderful Distribution of Wonderful People" This is my 5th series of  "Circle of Randomness". I will not do this every week, but instead more like every other week. Every so often, I decide to be my random self and randomly select a group of people who have interacted with me rather by +1ing , commenting, & or sharing on & from my various accounts here on G+. Besides the  +Altered DNA +Tech Integration & +Circle Distribution, my main personal account remains anonymous, and I'd like to keep it that way (sorry). I'm a private kind of guy, that's all =DSo yeah, if you're in this circle I'd like it if you shared it. Why? Because YOU deserve to be shared...fyi, I really don't care if you share THIS circle privately, just share it, rather private or public (public makes it easier for me to track and therefore easier to know that you may want to be included in future circle shares)....SHARE IT! You deserve to be shared.#FriendsShareFriends   #SnowballEffect   #YoureAwesome   #AwDoWP   #GpSc   #CircleOfRandomness   #AlteredDNAFsF You can view the circle shares by clicking on these links here:#CircleYouShare http://goo.gl/0ysXzg  #CircleOfRandomeness v5.0 http://goo.gl/DTpJ3x#CircleOfRandomeness v5.1 http://goo.gl/HiIzXI#CircleOfRandomeness v5.2 http://goo.gl/260m332013-11-15 01:38:52396454258CC G+
Danial Hallock10,323No Name NeededIt's getting close to the Holiday Season, and the whole point of this particular part of the season is to "give thanks" to the people (or, in America, things) that have positively impacted your life.  For me, these are those people.You all should remember my initial circle The Three Hundred (http://goo.gl/kqE8h) which was well received at 251 +1s and 48 reshares.  This circle was my first round of hyper-vetting individuals for circling, based on a lot of criteria that was centered around high quality content and a high level of engagement.  I think I combed through about 2,300 profiles on a one-by-one basis before arriving at the final product.That circle then morphed into the The Collaborative Circle (http://goo.gl/Ex9ai) which was less publicized, but still racked in 90 +1s and 13 reshares.  This circle was based on the premise that "If four people from The Three Hundred enjoy person X, then I should also enjoy them."  Well, the combination of these circles lead to an interesting scenario in which I was able to locate all stars through a combination of overlap and relevance (via Google algorithms).  Out popped these twenty five individuals, and I could not be happier with the results.  These are twenty-five individuals in which I am subscribed, their posts are always enjoyable as well as insightful, and the notification stream keeps me engaged throughout the day.Whether you're looking at the tech news from +Mike Elgan, the social and scientific commentary of +Yonatan Zunger, or the general internet awesomeness that is the enigma of +Sarah Rios, you're not going to be disappointed.I normally only notify people that are contained within a circle, but these people are too awesome not to be guilty of a little plus-spam;  feel free to request a removal from the notified (all) circles.(Link to this post: http://goo.gl/AlsXG5) #nonameneeded   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #sharedcircle  2013-11-13 23:53:242639671CC G+

CA Governor Signs “KILL SWITCH” Bill Into Law Allowing Police To Shut Off ALL Cell Phones … Remotely

Well, it’s official Following a drawn-out Senate voting process, California governor Jerry Brown has signed his state’s smartphone Kill Switch bill into law. (please feel free to click on his name which will lead you to his Facebook page; send him a thank you for being a traitor)

Governor Jerry Brown has signed legislation requiring disabling “Kill Switches” on new smartphones, his office announced Monday, August 25th.

All phones sold in the State of California will be mandated to this integrate controversial “Kill Switch” technology.

Police and others would have the ability to shut off cell phones anytime they wanted under the bill, privacy experts say.

Senate Bill (SB) 962 requires manufacturers to add a “Kill Switch” to cellphones that would let... more »

Oh, and here where civil forfeiture means a nightmare for the slightest contact with the law and LEO -- and it's no wonder a lot of people so distrust the police --

Under civil forfeiture, property owners do not have to be convicted of a crime, or even charged with one, to permanently lose their property. Instead, the government can forfeit a property if it’s found to “facilitate” a crime, no matter how tenuous the connection. So rather than sue the owner, in civil forfeiture proceedings, the government sues the property itself, leading to surreal case names like Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. The Real Property and Improvements Known as 2544 N. Colorado St.

Oh, and here where civil forfeiture means a nightmare for the slightest contact with the law and LEO -- and it's no wonder a lot of people so distrust the police --

Under civil forfeiture, property owners do not have to be convicted of a crime, or even charged with one, to permanently lose their property. Instead, the government can forfeit a property if it’s found to “facilitate” a crime, no matter how tenuous the connection. So rather than sue the owner, in civil forfeiture proceedings, the government sues the property itself, leading to surreal case names like Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. The Real Property and Improvements Known as 2544 N. Colorado St.

In other words, thanks to civil forfeiture, the government punishes innocent people for the crimes other people might have committed. Sadly, the Sourovelis family is not alone. Doila Welch faces civil forfeiture of her home, which has been in her family for 17 years, because her estranged husband, unbeknownst to her, was dealing small amounts of marijuana. Norys Hernandez and her sister co-own a rowhouse, but her sister is still barred from living there because Hernandez’s nephew was arrested for selling drugs outside her rowhouse. Welch and Hernandez have not been charged with any crime and both have joined Sourovelis as named plaintiffs in IJ’s class action against the Philadelphia forfeiture machine.

Time for civil forfeiture to go.

Incredibly, property owners battling civil forfeiture have fewer rights than those actually accused of committing a crime. Unlike in criminal cases, the government does not need to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” to prevail. Instead, once prosecutors show merely that there was a link between a property and some alleged criminal activity owners must prove their innocence. Moreover, since these cases are in civil court, owners facing forfeiture do not have a right to an attorney.

+Panah Rad, is this you? :P

Challenge me: Push-Ups
How to play: if you want to challenge me, plus one and give me work to do, if you want to be challenged, re-share or post on your stream and let others decide what your plans for this weekend will be.

Why play: the gamification of fitness is what makes it fun, the X-factor adds suspense and making it a public commitment that helps with accountability. Fitness is often about doing something, anything and just keep on doing it consistently. Every rep adds up and makes a difference - energy invested is never wasted.

Ferguson and Net Neutrality

Here's an interesting thought experiment for you: If the mayor of a city declares an illegal martial law over a city and reporters are chased out with teargas and riot gear, how does the American Public get its news?

Twitter. YouTube. Facebook.

What happens when Net Neutrality takes over and live streaming YouTube is no longer technologically capable as your mobile device competes against the fast-laned IoT enabled SWAT team that's bearing down on you?

Nothing.  A successful media blackout.

Okay, this is an Ice Bucket Challenge GIF that I can get behind.

Thermal recording of the ALS ice bucket challenge
ALS was first found in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasn’t until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Ending the career of one of the most beloved baseball players of all time, the disease is still most closely associated with his name. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons  die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

The team of four Materials Science & Engineering majors have developed a nail polish that changes color when exposed to date rape drugs, including GHB, Rohypnol, and Xanax. The wearer can stir her drink with a finger. If her drink has been tampered with, she'll know within seconds.

On their Facebook page, they write "With our nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger. If her nail polish changes color, she’ll know that something is wrong."

Team member Ankesh Madan discussed the origins of the company's ideas with Higher Education Works: "Undercover Colors started out as an idea born in my co-founders’ active imaginations," he said.

The team of four Materials Science & Engineering majors have developed a nail polish that changes color when exposed to date rape drugs, including GHB, Rohypnol, and Xanax. The wearer can stir her drink with a finger. If her drink has been tampered with, she'll know within seconds.

On their Facebook page, they write "With our nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger. If her nail polish changes color, she’ll know that something is wrong."

Team member Ankesh Madan discussed the origins of the company's ideas with Higher Education Works: "Undercover Colors started out as an idea born in my co-founders’ active imaginations," he said. "As we were thinking about big problems in our society, the topic of drug-facilitated sexual assault came up. All of us have been close to someone who has been through the terrible experience, and we began to focus on finding a way to help prevent the crime."

They also "wanted to focus on preventative solutions, especially those that could be integrated into products that women already use. And so the idea of creating a nail polish that detects date rape drugs was born."

Not only does the new product create a major line of defense against assault -- which 1 in women will experience in their lifetimes -- but the detectors like the polish can also protect against health reactions the drugs can cause. According to The Office On Womens Health, these drugs, when mixed with alcohol, can kill you. GHB, for example, has been shown by the University of Oxford to slow the elimination of alcohol. This can cause respiratory depression and death.
"Our goal is to invent technologies that empower women to protect themselves from this heinous and quietly pervasive crime," the founders say.

Giving any money to charity is noble, and it is deeply personal. Anyone who donates should feel good about it. I do wish we were a lot more rational about it at times. 
If you wanted to see how marketing can skew us, look no further than the graph below. Charities associated with breast and prostate cancer leave everyone else in the dust in money raising, yet other diseases kill a lot more of our fellow humans. 

Should the two red dots high on the money scale give some of their money to the lonely red dot on the bottom right because that dot is 10x more deaths? What do you think?

Phone:  Ring, Ring!

Dog:  Hello, this is Dog.

Phone Company:  Hi Dog.  This is the phone company.  We see you've been calling a lot of people in our service area.

Dog:  Yes, Dog have many friends.  Dog talk to friends a lot.

Phone Company:  Well, Dog, all those calls are clogging up our network, and making things slower for other people.  It's costing us a lot of money.

Dog:  That a shame.  Is Dog behind on phone bill?  Dog try very hard to pay bills on time.

Phone Company:  No, no, Dog.  We're not you're phone company, we're their phone company.

Dog:  Oh, so Dog's friends not paying bill?  

Phone Company:  No, they are paying their bills too.

Dog:  So everyone happy and friends!  Yay!

Phone Company:  No Dog.  We're not happy.

Dog:  Oh that sad.  So very sad.  If you not happy, Dog not happy.  What Phone Company not happy about?

Phone Company:  We're not happy that there's so much traffic on our network that comes from you.   We would hate for your phone calls to go badly.

Dog:  Go badly how?

Phone Company:  Oh, you know -- poor quality, lots of dropout.  Or just awkward pauses.  All those calls you make put quite a strain on our wires.

Dog:  That bad ok.  Dog likes barks to be clear and immediate.  So do Dog's friends.

Phone Company:  And to make sure that that happens, you need to pay us for special treatment of your phone calls.  

Dog:  Dog just simple dog and not understand.   I pay my phone company, right?

Phone Company:  Yes, you do.

Dog:  And dogs friends pay Phone Company, right?

Phone Company:  Uh, yes, but ...

Dog:  (continuing doggedly)  So if Phone company have problem carrying traffic maybe Phone Company should get more wires and switchy-thingies to provide better service to their customers, who really like talking to Dog.

Phone Company:  Oh Dog, there are complicated technical reasons that we just can't do it.  It's prohibitively expensive for one.

Dog:  That not what people Phone Company buy services from say...

Phone Company:  Now see here Dog, we are aware that all those people you call pay you to call them. 

Dog:  (with a joyful bark)  Yes!  We love each other so much!

Phone Company:  And they'd stop doing that if the calls couldn't go through or sounded terrible, right?

Dog:  Oh yes, that true.

Phone Company:  So you better give us a piece of your action, or you will be a Very Bad Dog with no friends at all.

Dog:  (sad puppy eyes)___Dog sad about Net Neutrality.

I somehow doubt Jo Blo Beat Cop would be able to brick your phone, but mandating that the technology be put in place does enable government abuse (possible - especially under "Martial Law" scenarios, like Ferguson) and hacker abuse (highly likely).

CA Governor Signs “KILL SWITCH” Bill Into Law Allowing Police To Shut Off ALL Cell Phones … Remotely

Well, it’s official Following a drawn-out Senate voting process, California governor Jerry Brown has signed his state’s smartphone Kill Switch bill into law. (please feel free to click on his name which will lead you to his Facebook page; send him a thank you for being a traitor)

Governor Jerry Brown has signed legislation requiring disabling “Kill Switches” on new smartphones, his office announced Monday, August 25th.

All phones sold in the State of California will be mandated to this integrate controversial “Kill Switch” technology.

Police and others would have the ability to shut off cell phones anytime they wanted under the bill, privacy experts say.

Senate Bill (SB) 962 requires manufacturers to add a “Kill Switch” to cell phones that would let authorities turn the device off remotely. The stated goal of the bill is to allow owners of smartphones to “kill” their phone if it’s stolen, but privacy experts are sending a warning that the bill’s language could be easily twisted. They believe that the bill needed additional language in order to more specific.

“If you give law enforcement a tool that can be abused, you’ll have an instance of asking for forgiveness rather than permission,” Jack Laperruque, an expert on privacy at the Center for Democracy and Technology, told The Hill. Laperruque believes authorities could use the “Kill Switch” to shut down communications during protests or incidents of civil unrest such as the riots in Ferguson, Missouri.

Many protesters use smartphones to coordinate their actions during demonstrations. Another example of abuse would be for police to prevent bystanders – such as citizen or mainstream journalists — from posting pictures or videos of police actions on the Internet. Cops could use the “Kill Switch” to stop people from alerting the media or their lawyers of police activity of misconduct.

“This could effectively be co-opted to disrupt protests,” Laperruque said.

In Ferguson, police at times demanded that citizens and journalists turn off their cell phones. Under this bill  SB 962, police would have had the power to do it by themselves, critics say. (source)
 
This is what Tech Dirt had to say:

“We’ve explained a few times now why the idea of mandatory kill switches for mobile phones is a really bad idea and a slippery slope to abuse.”

“The reasoning behind this bill seems sound: a kill switch makes stealing phones less valuable, thereby decreasing phone theft. But, the mandate is dangerous for a number of reasons. If individuals want to use a kill switch there are plenty of third party apps they can get to do that themselves. But much scarier is how such kill switches will undoubtedly be abused. Having a single technology that can brick a ton of phones will be a very tempting target for hackers. And, it will probably be even more tempting for law enforcement for a variety of reasons. Someone videotaped the police doing something bad? Instead of having to go confiscate the phone, why not just brick it from afar? This seems like yet another bill pushed with good intentions that risks some very dangerous consequences.”

 The bill’s sponsor, State Senator. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), said:

“This is the first bill of its kind in the country. I think as any number of issues here in California, when we act it becomes the de facto way business is done across the country. Minnesota passed a bill before ours, but it’s opt-in. That will not make it a UNIVERSAL deterrent.” (click on his name and it will take you directly to his Facebook page; send him a thank you for being a traitor)

SB 962 will go into effect in July 2015. (just in time before we might see another false flag operation, or collapse of the US Petro-dollar, or the global economic reset, or any other psychological operation (PSYOP) that these psychopaths have planned to destroy America!) 

Since most major brand manufactures have already embraced the technology, one has to wonder what the real intent of signing this bill into law? Of course, it’s being sold under the guise of anti-theft protection, so it’s a guarantee that the masses won’t even blink an eyelash over this very dangerous bill’s passage. Unfortunately most Americans are too propagated and brainwashed; hence they still subscribe to the old saying:

“I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”

California police will now have the ability to practically do whatever they want and should there be someone with a smart phone attempting to film any police brutality, the “Kill Switch” can immediately disable the evidence, and no one will ever know the truth of what really happened.

This entire picture makes Ruby look like one bad-ass mofo for equality. We've still a long way to go, but we owe our progress to people like her.

Ruby Bridges, the brave little African American girl's entry into an all-white school on November 14, 1960.

As soon as Bridges entered the school, white parents pulled their own children out; all teachers refused to teach while a black child was enrolled. 

Only one person agreed to teach Ruby and that was Barbara Henry, from Boston, Massachusetts, and for over a year Mrs. Henry taught her alone, "as if she were teaching a whole class." 

Every morning, as Bridges walked to school, one woman would threaten to poison her; because of this, the U.S. Marshals dispatched by President Eisenhower, who were overseeing her safety, only allowed Ruby to eat food that she brought from home. 

Another woman at the school put a black baby doll in a wooden coffin and protested with it outside the school, a sight that Bridges said "scared me more than the nasty things people screamed at us." 

At her mother's suggestion, Bridges began to pray on the way to school, which she found provided protection from the comments yelled at her on the daily walks.___This entire picture makes Ruby look like one bad-ass mofo for equality.

"My punishment is far heavier. I forgive you, and set you free."

No kidding; set a guy free and watch his country tear itself apart with a civil war, the guy becomes banished and dies being eaten alive by maggots, and the first Crusades occur as a result.  Heavy shit, Arslan. 

#onthisday  in 1071, the Eastern Roman Emperor Romanos IV was decisively defeated by the Seljuk Turks under Alp Arslan at the Battle of Manzikert in present-day eastern Turkey. 

“Alp Arslan: "What would you do if I were brought before you as a prisoner?"
Romanos: "Perhaps I'd kill you, or exhibit you in the streets of Constantinople."
Alp Arslan: "My punishment is far heavier. I forgive you, and set you free." (alleged conversation between the two commanders after the battle)

It speaks volumes about the political situation in the Middle East around the year 1000 that Seljuk, the chieftain of a band of a nomadic tribal confederation, only recently converted to Islam, could establish himself as the leading faction in the ancient cultural region and that the grandson of the said condottiero and namesake of the dynasty, after adopting Persian customs and court manners, would already rule an empire almost the size of that of the Achaemenid kings of old. But then, their ancestor Dareios started out pretty much in the same manner 1,500 years before. And now, in the last decades of the 11th century, the Seljuk Sultan Diya ad-Din, called Alp Arslan, the brave lion, threatened Anatolia, the heartlands of Eastern Rome, as well as Fatimid Egypt. And while the sultan was actually about to show the latter what was what, the new Roman emperor Romanos IV Diogenes marched towards Edessa and Aleppo to secure his frontiers and re-conquer the fortified Armenian trading town of Manzikert and Alp Arslan marched west to meet him instead.

After initial successes in Central Anatolia, Romanos’ army of 40,000, consisting of only one fourth of Byzantine core troops and lots of various mercenaries, Anglo-Saxons, Normans, Bulgars, Turkish Pechenegs and Cumans and whatnot, approached Manzikert and the emperor promptly turned down Alp Arslan’s favourable conditions for a peace, seeking a military decision as well as a stabilisation of his own rather shaky position in Constantinople by warding off the threatening Turkish invaders once and for all. Manzikert was re-conquered on August 23rd and after initial pitched battles with Alp Arslan’s vanguard, Romanos’ Turkish mercenaries decided to defect to the enemy and his Normans simply refused to fight. Treason would be the end of him three days later. While drawn up in proper battle formation and pushing the Seljuks before him, both his wings were badly shaken by Turkish hit-and-run tactics. Deciding to take back his centre and calling it a day, Romanos’ own rear guard under his co-regent and rival Andronikos Doukas seized the opportunity to withdraw on his own and leave the emperor in the lurch. His withdrawal was misconstrued as opting for flight and within moments, the Roman army broke away in a general rout. Only Romanos and his Varangian lifeguard stood. And they were overwhelmed soon enough.

Persified as he was, Alp Arslan decided not to treat his imperial prisoner like the Sassanid Shah Shapur did with the captured Roman emperor Valerian in 260 CE. He sent him home to Constantinople, knowing what Romanos would be getting into. And indeed, after the political turmoil and short civil war that followed the defeat at Manzikert, Romanos was dethroned, blinded and banished to a small island in the Bosphorus where he died in 1072, allegedly while maggots fell from his infected wounds in his face. And while his eventual successor Alexios had to call to the pope for help against the Seljuk Turks, a plea that caused the First Crusade, more and more Turkish lords with their warriors and settlers swept into Anatolia and the Eastern provinces of the Byzantine empire were gone forever. It was the beginning of the end of Roman rule in Asia Minor.

Depicted below is a modern imagination of a captive Romanos in classical Roman garb, led to the victorious Alp Arslan under the large banners with the double eagle symbol of the House of Seljuk, by an otherwise unnamed Turkish artist, found on http://www.alp-web.com/2014/07/tunceli-ili-ve-tarihcesi.html

Okay, this is freaking awesome; +Andrey Rudenko has 3D printed an actual piece of architecture.  It's probably not up to code to live in, but the results below are stunning.

via +Jeff Dean 

It has been two years since I first began toying with the idea of a 3D printer that was capable of constructing homes. In my vision of using 3D printers as new technology, I wanted a light, portable, and stable machine. First, I built a small 3D printer that used plastic for its main material, and from that, I started experimenting on enlarging the printer and using variations of cement mixes. Layering cement was an extremely difficult task- it required extensive tuning of the printer on a programming level, as well as using exact quantities for the cement mix. While testing the printer, I ran into obstacles (such as the nightmare of the extruder clogging) and discovered even further abilities of the printer, like that it can print much more than 50cm a day as I originally thought. I was able to calibrate the machine so that it prints nearly perfect layers now, and I played with various heights and widths of the cement layers. My current standard is 10 millimeters in height by 30 millimeters in width, but countless other options are available with just the click of a button.
This two year long journey has led me to build the world’s first 3D Concrete Printed Castle. Finally, it stands!

In desire to start the 3D printing of the castle model sooner, I relied on my own resources. When I started out, people struggled to believe this project would progress any further. However, I was lucky to get lots of invaluable input and support from individuals from the RepRap community. Specifically, I am eternally grateful to James Newton for his constant support with the drivers (http://www.massmind.org/Techref/io/stepper/THB6064/index.htm). These drivers ended up being the only ones to work properly with Marlin Firmware (I sampled other drivers, which failed), and were powerful enough to move such a huge printer. Also, I am greatly thankful for Mikhail Tikh, a design engineer collaborating with me on the project and responsible for the 3D model of the castle. I’m also really grateful for all the help I received with manual labor on this project.

Right now, I am in the process of redesigning the printer based on the lessons learned. My biggest priority is ensuring that the upgraded printer will be ready for the new project. My goal will be to print 24 hours a day until the project is finished. I’m also planning to print the structure in one piece; printing the castle turrets by themselves was a bad idea as they were extremely difficult to lift and place. Additionally, I’ve figured out how to print a roof; the only thing is that the material I’d print with would have to be used in warmer climates for now.

The next project is a real full-scale livable house. The amount of correspondence I am getting proves high demand and interest in this new technology. I want to make sure that for the next project, I have the right team doing the job to fully use all of the benefits of the 3D printing machine. I am open to offers from individuals or companies interested in owning the first house of this type built with the newest 3D technology and ready to provide abundant funds to completely cover the project and all its expenses. The interested party needs to own the lot/site and possess a permit for a house built by 3D Printing technology. While the location for the next project will be selected based on many factors, I have decided that ideally it should be a region with warm, mild climate so that printing can start in the fall and continue during the winter season. Since the technology is ready, I’d like to start printing as soon as I have a real offer for this first 3D-Printed House. I’d also like to collaborate with the interested architects, designers, and software engineers experienced in 3D tools. Contact me at 3dprint@totalkustom.com for any questions, suggestions, and offers.

Finally, our website is live (though still with lots of room for improvement); it will be a place to write updates on the 3D printing progress, as well as be a posting wall for new ideas and findings. I’ve included a page in which I outlined the artistic capabilities of the 3D printer to print design elements; some of the decorative elements worked very well during the castle printing. My hope is that designers and architects looking to create a new look for buildings will find this information useful. The new 3D technology allows us to implement completely new architectural ideas in construction and it is remarkable how we can vary the current architectural structures of homes. With this new technology, it is possible to print limitless amounts of classical décor as well as brand new elements and shapes, whereas previous technology made innovative constructions difficult and expensive.

A new era of architecture is inevitable, and I’m excited to see where the next few years will lead in terms of construction and design. I have previously been sure I could print homes, but having finished the castle, I now have proof that the technology is ready.

Andrey Rudenko

I've been enjoying this since it was Alpha (called Incognita then, they changed that recently). It's pretty damn good. I've been taking long breaks between plays to really see the progress as they change/add/remove stuff as it grows.

Highly suggest picking it up if you're into something that many are describing (accurately) as xcom meets syndicate meets gunpoint.___This looks like an interesting game to add to your Steam Wishlist; making turn based a tense and dramatic affair.

Don't think Art matters? It was once used to convince Congress to classify Yellowstone as a national park.

Good Morning Google+  your daily story about art: 08.25
Today we remember Thomas Moran, the American landscape painter of the Hudson River School, who died on August 25th in 1926. Born in England in 1837, his family emigrated to the US in 1844. His training began as an engraver, but he soon left to train informally with artists both in the US and Europe.

He was greatly impressed with, and influenced by, J.M.W. Turner, whose influence can be seen in Moran's work. This is his painting of the Green River, Wyoming showing the stunning light and coloring of the area.  

It is said that the water colors and paintings that Moran made of the area around Yellowstone played a major role in helping to establish the National Park in 1872. His were the first color images of the wonders of Yellowstone ever to be seen in the Eastern US, and helped to convince the voting members of Congress that the area was more than deserving of protection as a National Park.

Have a day full of light, and tread lightly

Dear FOX News
Fort Lee on Lock Down: Active Shooter

If every soldier on Fort Lee had a personal firearm, they would still be sheltered in place; the only difference is that instead of a bunch of pissed of soldiers sitting in a cramped room staring at a door, you'd have a bunch of armed soldiers sitting in a cramped room staring at a door. 

Safety decreases and the active shooter is still only engaged by the military police. 

So FOX, stop promoting your ammosexual agenda when there's a very real crisis that you're supposed to report on.  And find a few military advisors who served recently. 

K? Thxbai.

If every soldier on Fort Lee had a personal firearm, they would still be sheltered in place; the only difference is that instead of a bunch of pissed of soldiers sitting in a cramped room staring at a door, you'd have a bunch of armed soldiers sitting in a cramped room staring at a door. 

Safety decreases and the active shooter is still only engaged by the military police. 

So FOX, stop promoting your ammosexual agenda when there's a very real crisis that you're supposed to report on.  And find a few military advisors who served recently. 

K? Thxbai.___

Aren't politicians supposed to be a little more, well, politically savvy?

Should there be a statute of limitations on sensitivity?

Long story short: The 200th anniversary of English soldiers burning down The White House was commemorated by the British embassy over the weekend with a tweeted photo: 

"Commemorating the 200th anniversary of burning the White House. Only sparklers this time!"

Some random people got their panties in a bunch, and the Embassy apologized. 

My reaction to this was "gimme a break," people. There has got to be a time limit on sensitivity over perceived wrongs and abuses of the past. 

If so, what should it be? 200 years? 2,000?

+TheFineBros did a really fantastic job with this video. It's serious -- as the title indicates -- and is profoundly well-done.

For the parents in the audience, you might want to pay particular attention starting at 4:52. This is when several of the teens talk about things which might cause them to drive while drunk -- and they repeatedly call out the problem of not being able to call their parents for help, for fear of how their parents will react, as something that could make them do this. If you have kids of this age, make sure you talk to them about this sort of thing, and that they know there is someone they can call: it could save their life.

Don't be that parent.)___

This is a remarkable project for a high school student!

Fungus Amongus: budding scientist helps solve medical mystery 

Hidden Spheres: A 7th grade science fair project has helped uncover the source of fungal infections that target patients with HIV/AIDS. One third of AIDS related deaths have been linked to infections by Cryptococcus. This fungus causes life-threatening infections in immune-compromised patients, and less commonly in healthy people, pets and animals, accounting for >1 million infections and >620,000 deaths worldwide. Named "hidden sphere" because of its tiny spores, Cryptococcus is a single-celled yeast that can propagate by budding, or it can mate in pairs to form spores that are released into the air. Fortunately, it only multiplies by budding in human hosts, and therefore cannot spread from person to person. So how do we acquire it, and what is its natural reservoir? 

Love is in the Air? : Cryptococcus gattii grows on the bark and leaves of the Australian Eucalyptus tree. Scientists speculate that the tropical fungus was inadvertently imported into the northwestern US along with the trees, and has spread to ten other tree species in the Vancouver/Oregon area including Coastal Douglas Fir and Coastal Western Hemlock. The fungus depends on chemical stimulants (myo-inositol and indole acetic acid) from plants for sexual reproduction, forming spores that are dispersed in the wind to be inhaled by unsuspecting people. Only mating allows fungal DNA to recombine, forming new, virulent strains that can survive in unfriendly environments such as the warm bodies of humans. After fatal outbreaks were reported in the Pacific Northwest area, patients with  AIDS and other immune illnesses have been advised to stay away from forests. Historically, C. gattii has been infecting people in California for years, although the fungus has not been found on eucalyptus trees and other usual suspects there. Tracking down the environmental hideout would help warn susceptible people of the danger in the hidden spheres. 

Nailing the Niche : Schoolgirl Elan Filler's father, a scientist, helped connect her with microbiologist Joseph Heitman of Duke University. For her science fair project, Elan collected fungal samples from local trees, cultured them on petri plates, and sent them to postdoc Deborah Springer who analyzed the DNA and compared it to samples found in patients in the area. They found a perfect genetic match with samples harvested from three species- Canary Island pine, New Zealand pohutukawa and American sweet gum, to patient samples collected in the past decade. With her science sleuthing recently reported in a publication in PLOS Pathogens, here's hoping that young Elan is inspired to find her niche in research and science!

I imagine that any commentary on politics in China is fairly dangerous to engage in; which, in my opinion, makes this that much cooler.

Head on

Wolves run through the air, hit a glass wall and fall down.  Then they pick themselves up, go back and do it again.

This is just one of the remarkable and unsettling pieces by Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang

He recently made the news by creating a kind of Noah's ark with endangered animals and floating it down the river past the main financial district of Shanghai.  The animals aren't real - but they look pretty real, like these wolves.

The boat is now on display in Shanghai, in an exhibit that's become very popular.  You can see more of it here:

http://www.npr.org/blogs/parallels/2014/08/21/342189261/chinas-pollution-crisis-inspires-an-unsettling-art-exhibit

and here:

http://www.emptykingdom.com/featured/cai-guo-qiang/

A piece called 'Silent Ink' features a waterfall of ink plunging into a 5,300-gallon lake excavated from the museum's floor.  The lake is ringed by mounds of crushed concrete and iron bars.  It looks like a scene from a Chinese landscape painting - made of industrial waste.  It's hard to stay there for very long, because the smell of the ink becomes overpowering. 

But in its own strange way it's beautiful.

Of course, if you don't know the politics of China you'll miss part of the meaning of this wolf pack.  If you don't know that 16,000 dead pigs were found floating down a river in Shanghai last year, you won't fully understand that ark.  If you don't know a bit about the pollution crisis in China and the art of landscape painting, you'll miss some of what's going on in 'Silent Ink'.  But this art is good because it's not merely commentary on politics and the pollution crisis in China.  It's visually stunning, mysterious and tragic.

Israeli teenagers: Racist and proud of it
Ethnic hatred has become a basic element in the everyday life of Israeli youth, a forthcoming book finds.

“For me, personally, Arabs are something I can’t look at and can’t stand,” a 10th-grade girl from a high school in the central part of the country says in abominable Hebrew. “I am tremendously racist. I come from a racist home. If I get the chance in the army to shoot one of them, I won’t think twice. I’m ready to kill someone with my hands, and it’s an Arab. In my education I learned that … their education is to be terrorists, and there is no belief in them. I live in an area of Arabs, and every day I see these Ishmaelites, who pass by the [bus] station and whistle. I wish them death.”

Israeli teenagers: Racist and proud of it
Ethnic hatred has become a basic element in the everyday life of Israeli youth, a forthcoming book finds.

“For me, personally, Arabs are something I can’t look at and can’t stand,” a 10th-grade girl from a high school in the central part of the country says in abominable Hebrew. “I am tremendously racist. I come from a racist home. If I get the chance in the army to shoot one of them, I won’t think twice. I’m ready to kill someone with my hands, and it’s an Arab. In my education I learned that … their education is to be terrorists, and there is no belief in them. I live in an area of Arabs, and every day I see these Ishmaelites, who pass by the [bus] station and whistle. I wish them death.”

The student’s comments appear in a chapter devoted to ethnicity and racism among youth from a forthcoming book, “Scenes from School Life” (in Hebrew) by Idan Yaron and Yoram Harpaz. The book is based on anthropological observations made by Dr. Yaron, a sociologist, over the course of three years in a six-year, secular high school in the Israeli heartland – “the most average school we could find,” says Harpaz, a professor of education.

The book is nothing short of a page-turner, especially now, following the overt displays of racism and hatred of the Other that have been revealed in the country in the past month or so. Maybe “revealed” isn’t the right word, as it suggests surprise at the intensity of the phenomenon. But Yaron’s descriptions of what he saw at the school show that such hatred is a basic everyday element among youth, and a key component of their identity.

Yaron portrays the hatred without rose-colored glasses or any attempt to present it as a sign of social “unity.” What he observed is unfiltered hatred. One conclusion that arises from the text is how little the education system is able – or wants – to deal with the racism problem.

They're also gluten and cruelty free.

This is ridiculous for a couple of reasons. 

First, they're used toilet brushes.

Second, THEY'RE USED!!!

I can hear you saying, "That's way too much money for a toilet brush." True, but you seem to be overlooking the fact that they're USED!
