Here is my Circle Curator Edition 6This Edition is made primarily of high value #entrepreneurs  based in the UK and of course those that have been #engaging  with my #content  on the daily basis. Anyone that receives the message is inside the circle. Feel free to add everyone that is in this circle among your followers and to include the circle among yours; it's worth it.Here are the rules of the circle:1. Plus the circle and include me in your circle if you haven't so yet.2. Share the circle and comment to ask for inclusion in the next one.In between, for those that are interested in #business   #internationalization  and/or generally #onlinemarketing , I kindly invite you to check my series of my #onlinemarketingtips  on my coming soon website at http://notjustwebmarketing.com/. Enjoy your day and for those that are in Europe an love football, I wish you a nice Final Champions League watch.2014-05-24 15:39:51500423143

Enjoy my latest, heavily curated edition of the Super Science Circle.Please share this circle... for Science!For the uninitiated, I maintain a circle of 450+ people who are active on Google+ and regularly post on Google+. In this circle you'll find scientists, journalists, astronauts, educators, and science enthusiasts. By importing this circle into your own circles, you'll immediately gain a vibrant and fascinating feed of amazing science stories.I recognize that it might be too much science, so I suggest you create a brand new temporary circle and evaluate the people in the circle. Only transfer the keepers to your permanent circles. Then, when I update the circle next month, rinse and repeat.Are you active on G+ and regularly post about science? +mention me and I'll check out your profile.Remember, please share this post2013-05-22 19:26:51456348088
Fraser Cain770,050Super Science Circle - April 2013 EditionIt's time for another sharing of my Super Science Circle. This is a collection of 400+ active people on Google+ who often post about science. If anyone tells you G+ is a ghost town (not that anyone does any more), get them to import this circle. PLEASE SHARE THIS CIRCLE... FOR SCIENCE!I have personally reviewed each and every person on this list, to make sure that they:1. Are active and engaged on Google+2. Regularly post science-related stories on Google+In this list you'll find scientists, journalists, researchers, professors, astronauts and general science enthusiasts. Not everyone in this list is going to be to your personal liking. So what you'll want to do is import the list into a temporary circle. Then move people over one by one into more permanent locations in your circles.I'm always looking for more people to add to the list, so if you know people who meet my criteria, feel free to nominate them.Again, please share the circle.

The GMO debate needs more people like Pollan and Ronald.

These days Google+ gets overwhelmed with dodgy blogs lacking any kind of credible backing that are using fear to influence the GMO debate. Between all this noise it is great (thank you +The New Yorker) that some people, even if they are from opposite sides, talk to each other on a more mature level.

A must read article ( also do read the referenced articles ) for all that do engage in the debate here online!

Rollout of my first responsive web design! 

Together with +Lex Overmars redesigned our company (+Rijschool Vergelijker ) main portal into a mobile and tablet friend responsive design. Furthermore, we optimised our search algorithms and streamlined our backed to ensure completeness and integrity of data shown. 

Have a look and play yourself at:  https://www.rijschoolvergelijker.nl/ 

Would be cool to get some feedback from people regarding our implementation and how this works for you!

Pretty sweet deal for students who use +GitHub and need some simple free cloud server (for hosting or simple calculations).

As a student +DigitalOcean will give you 100$ in free credit for running a VPS on their platform. That means that for the cheapest machine you have 20 months of free hosting!

Study shows how CTCF binding can be influenced by quantitative trait loci (Hooray, my first-author paper is out!).

Furthermore, we show novel distinctive binding patterns for males and females on the X-chromosome that is not exclusively for the inactivation pathway.

The Dutch solution to stop people actively using their mobile on the bike: bribing! 

The gov developed an app that will lock your phone while biking (though it seems this is a manual procedure) and maps the distance you have been biking offline. The more you bike offline the better the odds to win things like a bike. Would be cool to see some data about that once people start logging themselves.

Markdown and Evernote. It is (sort off) finally there. 


Found this tool the other day that is making it possible to write simple Markdown documents (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markdown)  that will convert into nice looking formatted Evernote notes. 

It seems all very new, but the basics are working great. I can write my stuff, it autocompiles (it is split-window) so I can see what I do and the results are autosynced to Evernote. 

Only problems I've had so-far is that when editing later in Evernote, the syncing back towards Marxico is inconsistent. Also, currently, the tools is using plain-old-http and no https, so I'd not use it for anything too sensitive (or on an open network).

Fascinating to read about how long and how much tech modern humans and Neanderthals exchanged. 

" The new dates suggest that the two species lived in Europe for up to 5,000 years. This backs the view of some archaeologists that relatively late advances in Neanderthal stone tool technologies and their use of jewellery were copied from modern humans."

The Domino Sugar Factory, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, once the largest sugar refinery in the world, has been one of the most recognizable buildings on the Brooklyn waterfront for more than a century. Ten years after the plant ceased operation, in 2004, its forty-foot-tall yellow sign is still legible, even from Manhattan.

In 2012, the photographer David Allee was given access to the ninety-thousand-square-foot Domino complex. Built in 1882, on the site of an earlier refinery that had burned down, the factory processed sugar cane from all over the world, and at one time it produced half of the sugar consumed in the United States.

Skulls of early Homo erectus from the site of Dmanisi, Georgia, are all quite different.

"Together with the fossilized bones of four additional individuals discovered in close proximity, the skulls indicates that populations of early Homo comprised a wider range of morphological variation than traditionally assumed, which implies a single evolving lineage with continuity across continents. "

So who knows, maybe H rudolfensis, H gautengensis, H ergaster and possibly H habilis are all H erectus! If true this would be a game changer as it could indicate that our predecessors at a specific time and place are way less similar to each other than was expected until now.

Skulls of early Homo erectus from the site of Dmanisi, Georgia, are all quite different.

The people of America voted, good luck with that congress!

Fifteen per cent of those surveyed “strongly agreed” with the statement, “Being torn limb from limb by a grizzly bear or devoured by a pack of rabid hyenas is too good for these people. They should be eaten, very slowly, by a colony of hungry fire ants. Yes, that’s it—fire ants. That would be amazing.”.
