Shivakant Tripathi1,650Here is my 1st circle of engaging plussers. This is the only circle that I share publicly and it's made up of the awesome people who I follow and interact with regularly. If you received a notification then you are in it! I curate the be-jesus out of this circle and you don't get in just by doing the plus, comment, share  thing on this post. I make this circle up based on interactions on all of my other posts.Sharing, commenting, plussing is all encouraged and appreciated BUT re-share for your own reasons. Sharing won't get you in, not sharing will not get you tossed out. Again - not that kind of circle.There is plenty of room, Circle will be revised. #engagerscircle   #engagersshowcasecircle   #circleshare  2014-04-16 21:05:12198000CC G+

To the best of my ability everyone in this circles has personally hungout with me... and it was fun.. :)This circle is where I have made the most lasting connections on G+.... Meeting many of these people in real life since I met them in hangouts. I joined G+ Jun 29th, 2011. I hung out then and pretty much most days since. I was voted Google+ Hangout Queen this year :)I've seen amazing things in hangouts, Tours of far away countries, cooking classes, airplane trips, photowalks, concerts, language lessons, trivia nights, relationship advice, seeing famous landmarks, attending behind the scenes of tv shows, hangouts with famous celebrities, and countless late night and early morning hangouts with fabulous normal people from all parts of the world and right next door... TV shows have nothing on this. Countless experiences all without leaving my living room.If you want to try out hangouts on G+, ADD THIS CIRCLE and join one! These people will have hangouts that you should be able to see and join in on...   People in hangouts are usually really welcoming and nice.. so speak up.. say hi and join us.♥ ♥ Please feel free to share ♥ ♥ps. if you cant add the circle because google says you added too many today.. remove some of the people and try again... :)#googlehangout #hangout #sharedcircles  2012-11-16 03:28:4650010552171CC G+

Someone with a Master's Degree in Science gets to the bottom of what passes for "nutrition science":

«And so begun my journey into a land of bullsh*t and fantasy that is ‘established’ human nutrition theory.  I can confidently say I do not know of any field of human endeavor in which so much bullsh*t, unsubstantiated hypotheses and complete nonsense has been presented and accepted as science and as conventional wisdom.  Pick any subject from saturated fat, to fish-oil supplements, antioxidants supplementation, to the benefits of fibre in lowering cancer and you get – drum roll – nothing!  Nothing but really bad science, wishful thinking and the wilful misrepresentation by an industry that pretends it knows what it is doing.  »

To my turkish friends:

Apparently, I photobombed a taping of some show called roughly "We Travel Turkey" yesterday at Göbekli Tepe. If you're aware of the show, please watch for me standing in front of the map of the place, while the male host walks towards the female host and starts to ask her questions (I think).  Of course, I turned and stared directly at the camera, which was clearly shooting me and the male host as he walked.

If you can find the segment, and send me a video, I'd be most appreciative.  Thanks!

From the "weird happy hour rules" department:

At this nice lobby bar… happy hour "two for one" 6-8pm, on "cocktails and beer".  I settle in, and try to confirm that my usual rum and soda would be covered.  (Keep in mind English is not the bartender's first language).  "No", he replies.  And points at a list of specific mixed drinks. I point at the "Rum" on the next page, he say "no… no two for one… only cocktails and beer".

So I skim the "cocktails" list again.  Aha.

"I'll have a mojito, but please leave out the lime, sugar, and crushed mint."

"OK, no problem."

"And that's two for one?"

"Yes, it is a cocktail".

In other words, I just ordered… a rum and soda.

Today's random rant: websites that cannot choose between using "I" vs "you" to talk about… you.  Especially in EULAs… where the language shifts from paragraph to paragraph, sometimes calling you "you", and sometimes calling you "I".

More green-starts picking Dart: «"Google has set up a perfect storm for a new language," said Mixbook co-founder and Chief Executive Andrew Laffoon. The company picked Dart to power Montage, its new online tool for creating photo books, after comparing it to JavaScript and Microsoft's TypeScript, which extends JavaScript with more advanced programming options.»

Yesterday, I delivered a #Vagrant  file and a base-box based on freebsd-8.4 with pkgng and salt installed to bring up an entire local duplicate of http://insightcruises.com… including the "brochure" site, the booking app, and the intranet "admin" app.  It was my first experience at using salt to completely bring a system up from bare metal… and I got a lot of great help from the #salt  channel. Captain Neil is very happy.

Next step: saltify his entire cloud of servers, so we can maintain them centrally and bring up additional machines at will to handle more load.

«Java is neither a good nor a bad language. It is a mediocre language, and there is no struggle. In Haskell or even in Perl you are always worrying about whether you are doing something in the cleanest and the best way. In Java, you can forget about doing it in the cleanest or the best way, because that is impossible. Whatever you do, however hard you try, the code will come out mediocre, verbose, redundant, and bloated, and the only thing you can do is relax and keep turning the crank until the necessary amount of code has come out of the spout. If it takes ten times as much code as it would to program in Haskell, that is all right, because the IDE will generate half of it for you, and you are still being paid to write the other half.»

MH370  A different point of view. Pulau Langkawi 13,000 runway.

A lot of speculation about MH370. Terrorism, hijack, meteors. I cannot believe the analysis on CNN - almost disturbing. I tend to look for a more simple explanation of this event.
Loaded 777 departs midnight from Kuala to Beijing. Hot night. Heavy aircraft.  About an hour out across the gulf towards Vietnam the plane goes dark meaning the transponder goes off and secondary radar tracking goes off. 
Two days later we hear of reports that Malaysian military radar (which is a primary radar meaning the plane is being tracked by reflection rather than by transponder interrogation response) has tracked the plane on a southwesterly course back across the Malay Peninsula into the straits of Malacca.
When I heard this I immediately brought up Google Earth and I searched for airports in proximity tothe t... more »

Hint: obesity is not a disease, unless you have a financial interest in maintaining the status quo…
«The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly American Dietetics Association) has the most influence on dietary recommendations. Their primary sponsors include Coca-Cola, Hershey’s, General Mills, Kellogg’s, PepsiCo, SOYJOY and Unilever. With these food industry giants as their sponsors, what would you expect the AND to recommend for sound nutrition? “Everything in moderation” and “count your calories” will continue to be recommended, and taught to their up-and-coming Registered Dietitians.

In a culture where people are literally addicted to many of the foods those companies produce, it’s irresponsible of the AND to recommend eating them in moderation. It’s no different than if the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) made public statements to smokersthat they smoke in... more »

Fish oil supplements: just say no.

«The medical community suffered three significant fish oil failures/setbacks in 2013. Claims that fish oil's EPA/DHA would stop the progression of heart disease were crushed when The Risk and Prevention Study Collaborative Group (Italy) released a conclusive negative finding regarding fish oil for those patients with high risk factors but no previous myocardial infarction. Fish oil failed in all measures of CVD prevention—both primary and secondary. Another major 2013 setback occurred when fish oil's DHA was shown to significantly increase prostate cancer in men, in particular, high-grade prostate cancer, in the Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial (SELECT) analysis by Brasky et al. Another monumental failure occurred in 2013 whereby fish oil's EPA/DHA failed to improve macular degeneration. In 2010, fish oil's EPA/DHA failed to helpAl... more »

From the "left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing" department:

I'm upgrading to a new release of some software.  I have an existing account on their site with a username and a strong password that has some punctuation in it.

As I'm "registering" the new upgraded software, it asks for my username and password.  I enter the proper username and password, and it rejects the password with "your password cannot have punctuation in it".  Oh, ok, so I remove the punctuation, and try again.  "Your password doesn't match the password we have on record".  No s**t, sherlock.

Good thing there's a "register later" button so I can finish the installation.

Obesity is about chemistry, not character:

«While out grocery shopping a couple of years ago, Chareva and I ran into a mom whose son was in Sara’s class.  The mom, who struck me as a nice lady, told us she was going to push her son to play more outdoors during summer vacation because he was getting fat.  So of course I sneaked a peek in her grocery cart.  You can guess what I saw:  skim milk, jugs of apple and orange juice, bread, noodles, Cheerios, fat-free yogurt cups and plenty of other food-like products with “LOW-FAT!” stamped on the label.

This wasn’t a careless mom.  This was a mom trying to do the right thing, buying products she’d been told were good for her son’s weight and health.  But he was getting fat.  That’s chemistry, not character.  The boy was living on foods that made him hungrier than he needed to be.»

I'm an M now!

Standing in the badge-pickup line yesterday at a conference, they asked what size T-shirt I wanted.  I was about to answer the same answer I had used for the past two decades: "XL".  But I stopped myself.  I'm a lot smaller now.  I asked for an "M".  It looked tiny, as if for a child.  But I took it back to my hotel room, and put it on… over the shirt I was already wearing.  It fit perfectly fine!

Modern wheat is the culprit:

«The results were clear-cut: whilst on the modern wheat diet no improvement in symptoms occurred, but participants on the ancient-wheat diet experienced a very significant decrease in symptoms, including less abdominal pain, distension, bloating, tiredness and improved quality of life. Also, at the end of the ancient wheat diet, but not the modern wheat diet, multiple markers of inflammation were reduced, including vascular endothelial growth factor – implicated in cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and diabetic retinopathy.»

Moral of the story… Wheat does no body good. (Parodying the "milk does a body good" advertising campaign.)  And no, it's not just the gluten… there are many other junky things in modern wheat.

I've maintained my goal weight for over a year.  I haven't changed from my "diet" of "low carb high fat".  It's not a diet anymore… it's a way I'll be eating for the rest of my life.  I'm happy and healthy and noticeably thinner to anyone who has known me for at least a few years.  In fact, to the new people I meet, when I show them the "before" pictures, they are dumbfounded that I was indeed that way.  Me too, a bit. :)

In case you haven't seen any of the 19 times that this has gone by before, here's my LCHF starter kit:

So, the easiest way to get into low carb high fat (LCHF) is this page:
