Chris Robinson24,784General Science Circle- Final UpdateLast August I started this General Science Database (http://goo.gl/tp06X), which could be uploaded into Google+ using the import contacts feature. Over the last year, the database has morphed into a shared circle and more recently into +Science on Google+: A Public Database. Due to the increasing overlap with the +Science on Google+: A Public Database, this will be the last time that I will be updating and sharing this circle.If you are a scientist, science teacher, or science writer, please feel free to add your profile/page to the +Science on Google+: A Public Database by filling out this form (http://goo.gl/yEg7M) and circling +Science on Google+: A Public Database. 2012-07-25 14:47:31300101339

Shay Dougan1,729I've culled my favorites down to this circle of amazing people. When I'm online, I hope to see something from one of them, either as a post they've made or a comment in one of my posts. They really are the very best that G+ has to offer, in my opinion. They're all unique, sharing a wide variety of things from so many different perspectives. When you have time, look at their profiles and circle the one you think you might like. I know you won't regret it. As for me, I'm going off the grid for a while. I'll be traveling the world with my boyfriend. Honestly. I'm looking forward to being unplugged and living life fully. I'll try to pop on now and again to see what's what. So stay cool, G+ people! And remember that this is all supposed to be fun! :)2012-04-13 16:34:0334214

Virtual Brain Trust Cooperative440Virtual Brain Trust Cooperative Circle. This is being posted mostly as a thank you to the people who have followed our new Google+ page. In the brief time since we set this up, more than 400 people have added it to their circles and are following our posts. Clearly something we are doing has inspired, or at least intrigued, a good number of people here. We really appreciate this vote of confidence and will continue to explore ways we can use a bit of the extra brain power we all have to help each other. These projects will be announced on the VBT Google+ page, so be sure to add that to your circles if you have not yet done so, and also on the network we are building at http://VirtualBrainTrust.org. Some of our more advanced projects will be lauhched on that site, so please consider adding a profile there if your interest is more than casual. It is possible this may be one of the last times we are able to share this circle - we are getting close to Google's 500 member limit and shared circles have limited utility for what we are doing anyway. Still, there are some great people to follow here, They all believe in the spirit of cooperation and have offered to at least consider using a bit of their extra brainpower - their skills, intelligence and creativity to help other people. If you are looking for people who are both smart and considerate, this is a great place to start.2011-12-09 16:58:254291798
Chris Robinson9,283Science Circle- Updated 12/2Many science-minded individuals have added their contact information to this Public Science Circle: http://goo.gl/X3PFl. I separated the active and inactive members, put the active members into a science circle, and I am sharing this circle. As you can see by viewing the database (http://goo.gl/K7QYK), we are a diverse group but we all share a common interest- SCIENCE! The three things that I like about this circle are: (a) the content, (b) self-selection- people added themselves to the circle and (c) it's somewhat transparent. Unlike many of the shared circles on Google+ where you do not know what you are getting until you import the circle, you can quickly get a glimpse of this circle by looking at the database.Please feel free to share this circle with your Science-minded friends. Click on the following link if you would like to join the Public Science Circle: http://goo.gl/X3PFl.Change log• This updates my previous Science Circle, which I posted on 10/30.• Approximately 25 new people added their contact information to the database.

I have a new political discussion rule or rules.

Anyone from any part of the political spectrum who uses terms like Teabagger or Libtard or Treehugger or Repugnican will be blocked without notice. 

Anyone who keeps a lot of the above folks in their circles will probably be blocked. Either for being a coward about blocking them even though you are against it or for being a coward and not openly using those terms yourself since you seem to accept them. It's either one way or another.

I've said for a long time that the internet seems to push people further towards the polarities, and derisive terms are the most potent part of that action. I can't be any part of that. It always seems that the worst type of human beings find each other on the internet and pair off over their different ignorant beliefs. They may deserve each other, but I don't.

Well, I've just closed my Facebook account. I was down to about 6 "friends" and it just started to seem silly. I have reasons not to use FB, but the desire to reach a few certain people overwhelmed those reasons, but not anymore. I can stand security risks, authoritarian forced changes, all the bad things of FB, but I can't take feeling silly about it..

This is what happens.
A clerk looks at a black person and the black person says, "It's because I'm black". 
The clerk looks at the teen and the teens says, "It's because I'm a teen".
A woman thinks, "It's because I'm a woman".

The adult thing in all of these scenarios is to think, "I wonder why they are looking at me?" But if you come to a conclusion before asking them or getting some evidence, you are just imagining things. You might want to get that looked at.

This woman looks pretty scary even in this glamour shot, and 18 month old children get scared of normal looking people.I doubt she can read the child's mind and know its motives. She is just imagining things, at best. At worst, she is purposely denigrating a child to attack the parent. Shame on her.

Wow. I used to think of Australia as a bastion of freedom in case the US went totalitarian (as it is doing under Obama). No more.

I first heard mention of the Australian laws to regulate technology that could have dual military / commercial use sometime last year, when a researcher in AI was quite scathing of the effect it would have on technology research in Australia.

Previous law covered the export of physical materials for military or dual use - the new laws now cover all manner of "intangible supply and brokering" including sending email to colleagues overseas.

Penalties are harsh, as you can imagine for laws involving potential military exports, but "major penalties under the law would be suspended for 12 months during a 'suck it and see' process."_

Notable, "Dual-use restrictions mean the new law affects researchers even if they have no relationship – and have never had a relationship – with the Department of Defence.

And for the sorts of technologies that could have potential military use, well, that's fairly broad.  Here's a start, from the article:

high-performance, neural, optical and fault-tolerant, computers,
electronics,
wavelength research (remember, wi-fi was ‘invented’ in Australia),
heat-shielding,
telecommunications,
information security research,
robotics,
human, animal and plant pathogens, both bacterial and viral,
fibre optics,
cryptography.
satellite technology.
sensor technology.
signal and image processing.
composite materials

With such laws in place, Australia looks particularly unappealing for any type of research.

There once was a woman that had a hundred children. She named each of them after numbers in the order they were born. There was a fire and all of them died except Fifty. Fifty went off to have kids of her own. They were very kind and loving. One day they found an injured dog. They took it home and nursed it back to health. They hid the dog and never told their mother afraid she would kick the dog out . In fact they never told anyone. To keep from arousing any suspicions they named the dog "This" so the name could be used in conversation. One day This ran away. They never saw This again. No one else knew about This. No one even knew a dog named This existed.

Only Fifty's kids will remember This.

I stewed on it for a while until I was sure of what the words were in my head, but I was also sure that I was mistaken - that I had originally heard the song lyrics incorrectly as I so often do. The eighties were a weird time for song lyrics, but I didn't really follow music then and besides, nothing could be this odd...

But no, it turns out here really is a song named "Eyes without a Face".

Name "Salamander Hitch"

This knot was developed to fill specific needs using general principles
learned on various web pages about the use, structure, terminology and mechanics of knots, but most prominently on
http://www.allaboutknots.com/papers.html
Thanks go to those on rec.crafts.knots as well.

The need was for a hitch which,
1) could be made while a strong pull was on the standing end.
2) would not communicate changing stress to the secondary parts
while tying.
3) would not roll or twist the spar around which it was tied
4) would not slide or rotate on the spar
5) would cinch the standing end tighter when finished (very
important)
6) could be easily untied after lengthy, strong and varying stress.

There are two methods of tying the knot I finally used, the first one
being harder to tie, but necessary if you cannot reach the end of the spar. It is also the method which best describes the method of invention, the benefit of use and the principles involved.

Around an upright spar or mast, pass the running end clockwise around the back, bringing it back under the standing end. This distributed the pull across the spar due to the change of direction; next I wanted to lessen the effect of change force on the running end, by binding the running end around the standing end. Pull up and around the standing end, then down and under again. In other words, wrap the running end 1.5 times clockwise around the standing end. This should make the running end stable and free. It also balances most of the twist imparted to the spar.

Now I needed to bind the first part of the knot while making a cinch
with mechanical advantage. Wrap around the mast again in a clockwise direction about an inch below the first bend. This causes an opposition of forces needed to create the cinch. If you pull on the running end now, you will see that it pulls the wrapping towards the spar, tightening the standing end by a small amount, with simple leverage. But you need it loose for now.

To finish I wanted to strongly bind the running end and add a second
level of mechanical advantage. Continue clockwise, passing the running end over the wrapping of the standing end, then under the wrapping, between the two wrappings of the mast. This is why they are an inch apart, and why the second part of the hitch should not be pulled tight yet. There should be a triangle between the wrappings and the spar through which you can fit the rope. This is perhaps the least elegant portion of the procedure. Since this can be a strongly bound knot, similar in some ways to the constrictor knot, you may want to put in a bight. As you will see in the dressing and use, this is not strictly required due to a fortuitous deformation cycle of this
knot.

The second method of tying is done on a free rope, to be used over the top of a post. Make an "S" curve in the end of the rope, pulling them out into opposing bights. I do it by running the rope between my left ring finger and the middle finger, picking it up with index finger and thumb of the right hand. Left hand is palm down, right hand is palm up. The rope then passes around the index finger, back to the left hand between the middle finger and index, passing back out being held by the thumb. Lastly, pick up the end between the middle finger and index finger of the right hand.
_____.
O_____O)
(O_____O__

This makes the "S" curve and positions your hands for the last movement. You simply counter-rotate your hands. Left is now palm up, right is palm down. You will see that you have made to opposing loops hooked on your index fingers. These fold down to make the hitch. I use my left thumb, passing it down through the left side, under the wrapping, and up through the right loop.

Dressing and tightening this knot is important but mostly automatic. As I mentioned, there is a fortunate deformation that both binds the knot even tighter, and un-deforms easily to completely loosen the knot. The standing end pulls the wrapping into a cone, which compresses and bends the rope into a firm lock. Pulling back on the running end "clicks" the cone back into shape, leaving the running end free to be untied while still holding the standing end in case there is still a load.

Beyond the use I put this to (making a series of taut lines for a Wave Form demonstration for school children) I find that this holds onto a second rope very strongly, putting a slight bend in the main rope as it tightens. It also works well as a lashing, pulling two poles very tightly together. In this form it shows the "Salamander", the twisted wrap is the body and the passes around the pole are the four legs. Sadly, the amphibian has lost its tail.

Hopefully this description allows someone to tie this knot. I was quite
pleased to discover it and was surprised to see that the references available to me do not include it. If it turns out to be an  undocumented knot (I can't believe that it has never been tied before) I will find some place to post images and descriptions.___

Apparently the term "cultural evolution" is forbidden in my college. I have had to drop one class because I said it, where the instructor actually shut the door in my face when I tried to ask her about it, and I am suddenly getting much poorer grades in another class even though I'm doing much better work.

I don't know how anyone who espouses evolution in any system can deny it operates in human cultures. Attributes which are successful for the cultural environment spread, while attributes which are not advantageous tend to drop away. This is why disco was popular, then faded away. It's also why religions spread, civilizations rise and fall, dietary trends adapt, wars are fought and economic theories are embraced. Not because they are good or bad, but because for the time and place, they are more successful.
