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 23:04:169952455CC 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+

I was in a hobby- shop- that- shall- not- be- named looking for a buckle, and was nearly reduced to tears.
Christmas trees, decorations, lights, all set up, for sale.
I can almost understand the Fall decorations, but skipping all the way to XMAS?!
I fled, not finding the buckle after all.

All right, so, I made a thing that maybe will push me to make more thingses, and to document them better. This is +Pinkatron Pence's fault (and I will plop some dollars at her page as soon as pay day rolls around).

The desired end result here is to have enough documentation per project for someone to follow along with their own similar project, like a cross between a project diary and a tutorial.

Bonus: subversive "stamped" embroidery designs. Soon, Precious.

Tracking Ebola

I've been tracking online conversations relating illnesses and diseases on social media for the last year. Not from a morbid curiosity but from a seasonal trend/location spread perspective.

The online discussions have dramatically increased with today's news that a second US aid worker has been diagnosed with #Ebola. [CNN
http://ndx.io/1tU9gU5 ]

Where are the conversations happening?

23% on Google+
70% on Twitter
6% on Facebook
1% in Online News sources

To try and put things into perspective, we're tracking the following illnesses and diseases (the corresponding number by each are the number of posts / conversations indexed relating to each respectively (since the beginning of July):

Flu 7,233
Measles 1,399
Rubella 460
Mumps 434
HIV 17,181
Herpes... more »

I wrote a (very) short story for Popular Science's August issue, and you can find it at the link. You'll also find (very) short stories from Ian Tregellis, Ann Leckie, Melinda Snodgrass, Elizabeth Bear, Seanan McGuire, Mary Robinette Kowal, Scott Lynch, Daniel Abraham and Karl Schroeder. Sweet!

A Tentacled Underwater Workhorse

"For years, roboticists have yearned to develop a flexible machine that can explore tight spaces, repair dangerous equipment and potentially even conform to the human body.

Now one of the first members of this new breed of robots is almost here. It has sinewy arms, a powerful grip and the ability to work underwater without coming up for air.

Yes, it is an octopus."

A moment's rest...
What can I say, it is Monday again! Work putters along, tossing ideas in the air to see what fall where. 
I've had to admit I'm feeling the tendrils of depression grabbing me again- I'm trying to work past that.  Boring, I suppose, but true.
It is a good thing I have so many snuggly critters here with me.
My momma turns 77 this Friday and I'm looking forward to spending the day with her!  gotta have an end of week goal!
how is your Monday treating you?

I moved! Slowly unpacking and settling in. This afternoon I got my poster shelves all set up and ready to go. To mark my location change, I'm running a sale in my Etsy shop! Use the coupon code MOVED to save 10% off your order. I'll be running the sale until Sunday. Please share this news and help spread the word!

So I think we are talking about making a rug or using other upcycled materials, right?  I just finished a project using a commercial product from Lion Brand (Fettuccini) which is all upcycled textile material.  The black is a knit, T-shirt like material. 
The multicolored is woven, like bedsheets.
What I learned:
working to a tight gauge is really hard on the hands- I should have gone up a hook size. As it is I was using an L for the base, and a M/N for the sides.
Textile waste is high in selveges and weird knots.  Making your own could avoid this- but if you buy it, just think about it.  The woven material is widely varying in thickness.
Making your own will clearly be less expensive.  Each cone of Fettuccini was $10, I think, for about 55yds.
I bet material made from sheets would make a super durable rug.  the t shirt yarn would be softer.

#foanyday   #crochet
A tote bag made with  newish line of "yarn" from Lion Brand: Fettuccini.  It is yarn made from textile waste.  what you find on any given day is random.  the black yarn is a knit, t-shirt like material, while the multi-colored yarn is a woven fabric, like sheets.  it had a fair amount of selvedge in it. hard on the hands.  needed a M/N size hook.
Washing it made the bag a little softer.  to maintain the structure I stuffed those two large books inside while it dried.
The bag is heavy, and I'm not sure when I will use it, but I am fairly happy with it.  the handles are purchased as I felt they would be stronger and not stretch like crocheted handles do.

Feeling devilish? New #Halloween   #hats  will land in the shop as soon as the #Zibbet  re-launch is complete. And if you've got a giant melon, you're in luck! The black-edged devil hat has your name on it. (But I can make it regular-human sized, too, if you need.)

I feel like the biggest waste of space today.  I shouldn't say that to myself- I have done dishes and laundry, finished a bag and got it blocking, written up notes for something I'm writing, fed walked and played with pets.... but bleah.  All I want to do is lay in bed.

Chilling facts about Red Hot Chilli Powder

I read a news report titled “Fabric dye mixed chilli powder has hit the market - CAA “ which appeared in the local newspaper today,  with much concern. http://goo.gl/NjsFsf

“Instead of using food colouring dye,  illicit manufacturers use strong fabric dye to manufacture chilli powder which is extremely poisonous and hazardous to human health. To get a very bright reddish mixed orange shade the manufacturers use fabric dye which in other terms the consumers would believe that the best quality chilli powder has a dark, bright, red colour.. ..... ..

The low quality spices are sold retail without a packet, label or a brand. Most such substandard products are sent to day fairs and street markets held in remote areas where customers are willing to buy anything cheaper”.

The NYT is doing an op-ed series on marijuana. They are taking the stand that the US government should legalize the use, possession, growth, and manufacture of marijuana. After that hurdle the states could regulate licensing and other restrictions within their own borders. Beside the "popular uses of pot" there would be a supposed increase in the economic uses of hemp. Cloth, canvas, denim, clothesline, flooring, carpeting. Imagine it. All of it done without petrochemicals. Now that's a problem. Isn't it?

I was in a hobby- shop- that- shall- not- be- named looking for a buckle, and was nearly reduced to tears.
Christmas trees, decorations, lights, all set up, for sale.
I can almost understand the Fall decorations, but skipping all the way to XMAS?!
I fled, not finding the buckle after all.

It's #Caturday!!  And, well, poop.  The gal who was going to take two kittens backed out.  Anyone need two adorable kittens?  Or one?  Phoenix, Az area.

Hill is a male, with an awesome face (he looks like he wears white eye shadow). He's named for Edmund Hillary, because he's a climber.  

Dora is his sister, named for 'the explorer', she's curious about everything and likes to cuddle when you sleep.  Both are playful, 8 weeks old, and looking for homes.  They are box trained, but not fixed (yet).

Portrait shot is Hill, landscape shot is Dora.  Spread the word!!  I've made the post public so anyone can see!

When you look at these little bots comically falling over, kicking the ball, and waddling around... remember they are improving at a geometric rate... lasts years robocup entries were not as skillful as this years. Next years will be far more impressive.

I'll bet they will be better than me this decade, (granted, that's setting the bar low) and as good or better than the best humans in the next decade.

When a college contracts ‘adjunctivitis,’ it’s the students who lose
. . . by Joseph Fruscione

" Adjuncts now make up more than 70 percent of all college and university faculty, often juggling a course load at multiple universities, earning an average of $2,500 per course. And now they want the Department of Labor to know.

Joseph Fruscione is familiar with that lifestyle. After 15 years as an adjunct at three Washington, DC-area universities, he left academia this past semester to pursue a career as a freelance writer and editor – and activist. He’s part of the adjunct movement that is petitioning the Labor Department’s Wage and Hour Division about what they say amounts to “wage theft” when they are only paid for the hours they spend in the classroom and not for the research, prep and student-counseling that go into being a goodprofessor."... more »

The dragonflies were large, and oblivious of Beau and I- all the better to take a quick photo....
It wasn't hot enough for the dragonflies to just be still hanging out, so I didn't get too many good shots. but I liked this one!  :)

#fidofriday   Beau and I went to a new-to-us park area around Rock Gorge... lots of places to put in a fishing boat.  Beau was in sniffer heaven, especially in this sort of swampy area.  Walking a Basset Hound is never a fast endeavor.  One must stop every few feet to sniff and scent.
We walked so far he decided he was finished and just flopped on the trail about 10 yards from the car.  Nope, not gonna walk any more.  I had to carry his silly self.
