Fulvio Gerardi6,387Thanks to a circle share from +Euro Maestro, I realised its been a while since I've shared my #Whovian circles. And yes, the new series is coming soon.In case you've forgotten, there are three circles.... Guys, Gals, and Overflow (pages, androgynous, smurfs, and more guys).

Andrea Laford1,039This is 500 people (the limit I can share) from my 1000+ Sci-Fi circle.

Craig Froehle4,629467 Plussers Well Worth FollowingSome curated recommendations to make your Tuesday a bit more interesting. I kept this circle largely free of celebrities, pages, and organizations, so these should (nearly) all be actual people. Enjoy!By the way, topic-wise, it's a bit of a potpourri, but with emphasis on technology, science, progressive politics, skepticism, and other fascinating things.Note that I don't always agree with everyone in this circle, so don't take this as an endorsement of their ideas...merely that they tend to be thoughtful when presenting them.2012-07-03 14:29:094671718

The Kat Meredith Circle.  This circle contains all the gals from my circles (and who had me circled) that have names which are derivatives of Kat or Meredith.  There were VERY few girls with names similar to Meredith.  There were maybe one or two...I can only think of one (besides Kat herself).  Kat and its derivatives yielded many women.  Here is the search list I used for Meredith:MeredithMercedesMereMeriMerriMeridiMareMemiEdithEdieMarciMarcyAnd the search list I used for Kat:KatKatharineKatherineCatharineCatherineKathCathKatyKateyKatieKatrinaCaitlinKatelynCaitKateKathyKristinKristinaChristineChristinaKrisCrisChrisOf course, many of those terms were unnecessary.  For example, searching for Kat would show all Katharines, Katherines, Kathys, etc.Welcome to The +Kat Meredith  Circle, Kats, Merediths, and everyone in between!  Please Reshare #publiccircles   #sharedcircles   #circleshare   #circles  2012-06-05 04:36:5760200

What sort of precautions, if any, do you take when interacting online? How much of your internet life would you be willing to live without if those precautions were no longer an option?

Paying it Forward with the Ultimate Gift: A record breaking chain of kidney transplants

This is one of the most inspiring stories I've read in a long time. A little bit of selflessness can go a long way - in this case, saving 30 lives and changing so many more.

Kidneys are critical for our well-being - they help purify our blood (filtering 200 liters of blood every day!), and remove waste products from our systems. Kidneys also help regulate blood pressure and produce the active form of Vitamin D, which is important for healthy bones and tissues. Each kidney contains about 1.5M nephrons , which are the filters that help clean our our system, so that's about 3M nephrons in total. But we can survive with as few as 300,000 nephrons, just 1/10 of our total. That means that, although people normally are born with two kidneys, they can live a healthy life with just one functioning kidney. That makes it possible for people to donate a single kidney to help others in need.

In the old days, kidney failure meant certain death. Now, with dialysis (effectively an artificial kidney) people can live with kidney failure, but their lives are dramatically impacted: people on dialysis need treatment 3-4 times a week, and each treatment can take up to 5 hours. The other option is kidney transplantation. Patients who receive transplants typically live longer than those who stay on dialysis, but there simply aren't enough kidneys to go around for transplants. In the US alone, about 26M people suffer from chronic kidney disease, more than 350,000 Americans are on dialysis, and more than 70,000 are waiting for transplants. In Canada, 70% of all people on our organ donor lists are waiting for kidneys.

Why are so many people waiting for kidney transplants? Simply put, it's not easy to find a match, even if there is a kidney available. To ensure that the donated kidney isn't rejected, the donor needs to be compatible in terms of blood type and antibodies with the recipient. The donor could be deceased or living, and all donations are welcome for the patients, but transplants from living donors tend to last longer than those from deceased donors (about twice as long for transplants with a strong antigen match from living donors compared to deceased donors). Unfortunately, even if a patient has a relative who is willing and able to donate a kidney, the match is not always a good one. This is where national kidney registers come in.

The registry that led to the amazing chain of events/lives saved in the New York Times story is the National Kidney Register . They work with hospitals to keep track of who is looking for kidneys and who is willing to part with theirs - and the register determines which paths might be taken to save the most lives. Typically, a donor would be a friend or a relative of a patient who's kidney doesn't match the need of their friend or relative. If the patient receives a kidney from another donor, the friend/relative could then donate their kidney to someone else in need, and so on and so on. Until recently, the record chain was 7 - 7 donations and 14 people involved. What's so amazing about this story is that the system was able to get up to 30 donations involving 60 people (30 donors and 30 recipients), and it was all started by a good samaritan, who was inspired to give one of his kidneys after talking to a co-worker.

It's worth taking the time to read the full story, and see the videos of some of the folks involved talking about what it meant to them to give and receive their kidneys. The advances we've seen in these sorts of matching systems and transplants are possible through a combination of advancing in medical technology/treatment and computer science/optimization research, with a little bit of good human nature thrown in.

"The growth of the troubled teen industry, especially therapeutic boarding schools located in the United States and abroad, has given rise to many other allegations of the inhumane treatment of youth and the exploitation of families who are desperately seeking help for their teenagers. The goal of Kidnapped for Christ is to tell the stories of the students at Escuela Caribe and to give them a voice so that they may make people aware of the broader industry of schools like Escuela Caribe and the potential danger they constitute for our youth. We hope that the film will be entertaining, shocking, thought provoking and will ultimately inspire change in the way these types of schools are run and regulated."

Very interesting. I happen to believe that depression can be a combination of factors... it's hard to say if it's purely physiological or if it's also psychological. Or are there two different kinds? Maybe this will help us distinguish between the two on an individual basis, and therefor help us determine what the best treatment might be in each situation.

The Maryland Senate is expected to pass the bill easily since it passed with ease last year but could not secure enough votes in the House:___Hooray for Maryland!

And for today's dose of good news...

DNA robot could kill cancer cells nanorobots have a chance at becoming real therapeutics

Researchers at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University have developed a robotic device made from DNA that could potentially seek out specific cell targets within a complex mixture of cell types and deliver important molecular instructions, such as telling cancer cells to self-destruct. Inspired by the mechanics of the body’s own immune system, the technology might one day be used to program immune responses to treat various diseases. The research findings appear today in Science.

Whether or not these structures will work in a living organism remains to be seen. For one thing, they are designed to communicate with molecules on a cell's surface. The nanorobots are quickly cleared by the liver or destroyed by nucleases, enzymes chew up stray bits of DNA. It might be possible to coat them with a substance such as polyethylene glycol, widely used to boost the length of time a drug can remain in the body

During a recent interview with the hip-hop magazine XXL, rapper Too $hort encouraged teenage boys to “turn girls out” by pushing “her up against the wall.”1 The 45-year-old rapper continued, graphically urging his audience to put their hands inside the underwear of middle school-aged girls in order to achieve what he called “mind manipulation.” The magazine packaged the disturbing monologue under the headline “Fatherly Advice From Too $hort.”



Rhetoric like this has real effects on girls in our communities. A new study reveals that a staggering three out of five Black girls experience sexual assault by the time they turn 18.2 So why did the XXL staff, led by Editor-in-Chief Vanessa Satten, allow this video to appear on its site?

Join us in calling on Harris Publications Inc., publisher of XXL, to fire Satten and explain what steps they’ll take to make sure that sexual violence directed at girls and women is not tolerated at their magazines and websites. When we do, we’ll send a message to the entertainment media industry that we won’t be silent while one of its companies demeans and endangers our children.

Please click below to sign the petition, and ask your family and friends to do the same. It only takes a moment.___

84% of 400 mortgage forclosures audited in California were illegally processed -The improprieties range from the basic — a failure to warn borrowers that they were in default on their loans as required by law — to the arcane. For example, transfers of many loans in the foreclosure files were made by entities that had no right to assign them and institutions took back properties in auctions even though they had not proved ownership.

Commissioned by Phil Ting, the San Francisco assessor-recorder, the report examined files of properties subject to foreclosure sales in the county from January 2009 to November 2011. About 84 percent of the files contained what appear to be clear violations of law, it said, and fully two-thirds had at least four violations or irregularities.

Please read and repost. It is not as though it is actually news that Republicans tend to be both misogynistic an patriarchal in their in-house beliefs, but it seems that increasingly they are going public with their callous treatment of women's needs.

I love my Libertarian friends. But having said that, here is what Libertarianism is to me. It's the equivalent of one day deciding that there really ought to be gold at the end of the rainbow, and thereafter behaving as if such a thing were possible- demanding it, in fact. Then proceeding to declare that anyone who acknowledges that gold at the end of the rainbow is actually impossible just doesn't like gold.

I will take it personally if this man is elected president. It will be personal- he believes he should have the right to tell me what it means to be a woman. What gives anyone that right? Why do some people even feel we need an authority on the subject, and how would you go about determining who that authority should be?

The very fact that the insurance mandate to cover birth control is an issue is obscene. If you don't want insurance mandated, that should be your argument. The idea that you would select a particular service provided primarily to women as the sticking point is both disingenuous and hateful. When these idiots start arguing that there should be no mandate to cover prostate exams, I'll believe it's about cost savings and somebody's warped version of freedom. In the meantime, it's about telling women to fuck off.

And if you're a woman who believes we need someone like Santorum to tell us how to be women, you feel free to kneel at his feet and ask him directly. I'm sure he'd be thrilled. But don't for a minute expect me or anyone else to follow your example, because we still live in a country where we get to choose for ourselves in spite of people like you.___

I am totally annoying myself right now (which means I probably started annoying everyone else about 12 hours ago). I think that's likely a sign that I should immediately either do better drugs or go crawl into bed and call it a night. I will leave to your imagination which one I choose.

Today, Congressman Steve King came out and said he doesn't believe birth control pills prevent pregnancies. And Rick Santorum doesn’t think birth control is something ‘you need insurance for’ because it costs ‘just a few dollars.’

How the hell do people like this end up in charge of anything?
