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 23:04:169952456CC G+

Marie Axelsson9,706Hello and Thank you for the month of October!My month long project, with who interacts with me. Today the circle reached 500 people, but due to some bugs of G+ that I don't understand it doesn't say 500 anymore. However, here you all are. These are 500 people, who over the course of a month would have interacted with me. 500 people out of 9431 followers is a nice sum. :)Something I noticed is that some of the people weren't actually following me, but likely interacted due to someone else sharing their +1 activites on G+, which is a neat effect. Next month I will make another type of circle, not 100% sure yet, and there might actually end up being two for two purposes. They will of course both be shared. :D Good luck and enjoy each other's company! ;) 2013-10-31 16:57:16498553100CC G+

there is a key sentence here "Given the high cost of authentic HGH, it's possible that some of teens who reported using it may in fact have obtained fake products. As the survey said, "It's very difficult to know what exactly is in the substances teens are consuming, or what the short and long-term impact on their health may be.""

This is a fail on multiple levels: what is in these supplements? Where are the fraud laws when supplements claim these outrageous benefits? If the teens are using authentic HGH, why are the parents allowing it? how can parents turn a blind eye to steroid induced changes in children? (steroids are discussed too) and any coach who ignores steroid/supplement abuse should be fired.

"A new study that examined the survival rates of 12 different shark species when captured as unintentional bycatch in commercial longline fishing operations found large differences in survival rates across the 12 species, with bigeye thresher, dusky, and scalloped hammerhead being the most vulnerable".

"Drool may be gross, but it’s a powerful fungus fighter, according to new research. Biologists collected saliva samples from sedated moose (Alces alces) and European reindeer (Rangifer tarandus). They also grew red fescue, a grass that the two animals commonly munch on in Sweden. The scientists then conducted two experiments. They added the saliva to test tubes teeming with colonies of the fungus Epichloë festucae, which often lives within the grass and helps produce toxic chemicals to ward off ravenous grazers like livestock, and also to recently trimmed grass infected with the fungus. The latter simulated how grass gets ripped and doused with slobber when it’s been chomped on by a herbivore. Compared with fungi samples treated with water, moose and reindeer saliva slowed the growth of the fungi. When applied to clipped grass, moose drool reduced the production of the toxic chemicals between 41%and ... more »

Photographer gift question: my brother in law is abuot to be a first time grandfather (late Aug).  his birthday is in a couple weeks.  He is an excellent photographer.  I see that newborn photography props are the "in thing" now in baby photos.
Theoretically I could make one or more of the cocoons, tiaras, and /or other yarn related props.
Good gift? or weird?

Speaking of soap... did you know that for every ten bars of soap that I sell, I donate a bar to Peaceful Paths (http://buff.ly/WsKqzm), our local Domestic Abuse Network? Once a quarter I tally up all the sales for the last three months, and get my donation ready.

This last quarter, April through June, I sold 64 bars of soap. I can't stand to round down, so later this week I'll be dropping off seven bars of soap to Peaceful Paths. The quarter before (January through March) it was eleven bars; let's see if we can't make it 15 for July through September.

Thank you for helping me to help others, y'all!

There’s more than one way to catch a fly. Spider webs look like the perfect trap for ensnaring insects, but a spider ‘tree of life’ based on hundreds of genes suggests many spiders jettisoned the web in favour of other ways of capturing prey.

A philanthropist has given a $650 million gift for the pursuit of genes associated with psychiatric disorders like schizophrenia. In the New York Times, Benedict Carey and I have the story--including a look at the progress that psychiatric genetics is making at long last: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/22/science/650-million-psychiatric-research.html?ref=health&_r=0

Life Saving Meds: Help Pass SB 2096 For The #ChronicPain and #Spoonie Community

Ten days are left to pass Senate Bill 2096-An Act Relative to Financial Patient Protection in the state of Massachusetts. This bill would put a cap on copays from which vital meds are often needed, especially in the case of specialty meds where meds are exceeding expensive and the treatment works where others have failed. We cannot deny patients specialty meds and treatments, yet #chronicpain patients are often stuck wondering how to afford their meds even with insurance and other coverage. Meds can cost hundreds, even up to thousands monthly-all without a cap, where one is wondering how to afford them.

How can you help?
🔹You can read SB 2096 in its entirety here at https://malegislature.gov/Bills/188/Senate/S2096 and see bill summary.

Thursday afternoon I call to refill prescriptions A, B, C and D.
Pharmacist calls, says B can't be filled until Saturday, and C and D need Dr approval, can you pick them all up Monday?
I go to pick up:  B, C and D are there, and not A. 
Isn't that cute. BUT IT'S WRONG!

I find it significant that corporations seem to be the bestowers of coolness:

"I realize that Gemma’s not trying to defeat her enemies. She doesn’t even view them as enemies. They’re other kids like her and she never stops trying to win their approval. They’re the cool kids working for pizza Corporations wearing officially sanctioned PizzaCorp merch."

This seems to me an accurate reflection of real life, and further suggests that much of the peer-hostility described in this article arises indirectly from the way in which the big money entities like to play us against each other.

Monday. Well, isn't that cute.  BUT IT'S WRONG.
Everything feels wrong. Everything tastes wrong.
Even my beloved coffee tastes....wrong.
all the organizing and laundry made my muscles ache, and even though I thought I slept well, I feel flat as a pancake.
and grouchy.  so.  I'm telling you, aren't you cute- but you're WRONG.

Hirotoshi Ito graduated from Tokyo National Fine Arts University in 1982 and later went into his family business as a stonemason. He spent several years working with metal before turning his attention to stones. He utilizes stones found in a river bank near his home, to create sculptures that juxtapose the original shape and hardness of the material with surprising humor and texture...

General Rules Of Conversation SHOULD Apply

Back in 2012 I made a post explaining why I don't follow many people on G+ and why I rarely comment in other people's streams called Your Party Is A Mess (https://plus.google.com/+ElaineBarlow/posts/WwSKRftjR9F) using a pretty simple metaphor that some people got and some did not.

Related to that post, a couple of things have happened to me recently that I found irritating. I think that one of the problems of social media is that people refuse to follow even standard communication structure or rules of conversation when using it ...

Let's say my friend calls me up and invites me to a public gathering, like an open party. I saw the invitation myself but I had opted not to attend but my friend calls and asks me to come. Ok ... I consider going to the event because my friend is there and has requested my... more »

Look Up! Look Down! I didn't have time to take photos on my quick trip downtown this week, but I did find this unusual grate, high up on a building.  This photo makes me a little dizzy though, am I looking up or down?!
I liked the netting pattern- like the background of Irish Crochet patterns.

I am caffeinating, hoping to do laundry, rearrange some of the yarn stash, and general tidying.....

“the disparity between men and women’s representation in science and math arises from culture rather than genetics seems beyond dispute.” And when that culture still holds onto sexist views of women, even attempts to rectify this imbalance can backfire.

Coming Soon from Curiosity Quills Press: Silent Clarion

My curiosity might get me killed. I thought I needed a vacation from my duties as an Adversary in service to the Phoenix Society. After learning about unexplained disappearances in a little town called Clarion, I couldn’t stop myself from checking it out.

Now I must protect a witness to two murders without any protection but my sword. I must identify a murderer who strikes from the shadows. I must expose secrets the Phoenix Society is hellbent on keeping buried.

I have no support but an ally I dare not trust. If I cannot break the silence hiding what happened in Clarion’s past, I have no future. I must discover the truth about Project Harker. Failure is not an option.

Monthly Reminder How to Get RECENT Posts in Your Stream

Yes, time again to share this tip.  Tonight my stream stuck for an hour with only my friends Katy and Mary up top, and very occasional new posts.  When this happens I have a routine that works to get posts from all my circles, not just the ones Google+ thinks should be "Best Of" or Hot. Normally I get about 50 to 150 posts an hour.  Tonight I was getting about 25 so I knew that Google+ was filtering again.  Hope this tip helps someone.  I've posted several times previously about this. I'm back up to the REAL activity level again now but I've had to do this over and over especially in the last week.

1.  Enter a slash in the search field like so: /
2. Click Enter/Return on keyboard or the search icon
3. A top header  will become a wide, deep blue bar with headings.
4. Next toMor... more »

I'm helping put my neighbor put her chickens up at night while she vacations, so I took a few pictures yesterday.  I think she has 11 total, so this is just a few of them.  they have so much character!  My favorite is the one showing up as the second photo here- with the prettiest feathers.  it was quite friendly.  The others were more skittish.  She has two of the red ones- they are big!
