Since there were more than 500, I had to split the circle in 2 parts. If you get a notification, you are included!If I forgot someone, please notify me, since I am handpicking all, I might unintentionally skipped some. If you are in the circle but you wish to be removed, please let me know in comments.A big "Thank you" each and everyone in this circle!To enter this circle is enough to engage in my posts somehow during next weeks (plus, comment, share).Although is not mandatory to share it on your own stream, I would appreciate it if you do it and that will give you automatically a place in next circle release.

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+

Fraser Cain824,747Super Science Circle for October, 2013I know it's been a while, so it's time for a new Super Science Circle - the October 2013 edition.In case you weren't aware, the Super Science Circle is a list of more than 400 people who are actively engaged on Google+ and regularly post about science and education. We've got journalists, scientists, even a few astronauts. The Super Science Circle should be your best response to anyone who tells you that Google+ is just a ghost town. If you love science, this circle will deliver the goods.If you know anyone who actively posts about science, please let me know and I'll add them to the list.2013-10-04 20:14:53415304682CC G+

This is a feature I've been really excited to see launch. It's not just for giant monuments - often, after a disaster, this can be the only picture someone has of their home. (We saw this happen during tests) Or it can let them visit how their old places used to be.

(I'm also fond of this feature for the more obscure reason that a key enabling technology for it was a planet-scale storage system I built a few years ago. It's really nice to see something you made make something awesome possible.)

in my mall wanderings today, I went to Coldwater Creek, a store I used to shop at fairly frequently when I worked in an office.  As usual, my timing is impeccable.  The whole chain, online and brick&mortar, is closing imminently.  But not imminently enough to have any serious sale.
Lots of remodeling/ closings/ changes at the mall in general.  not necessarily a bad thing- but I wonder what is next to go?!

Fore-eyes: Swingbyte provides instant golf swing feedback to Google Glass

Sensors that analyze your golf swing in real time are awesome but require a phone or tablet for instant feedback. Google Glass might be a better device for this and Swingbytes new Glass app is ready to tell you why you’re slicing the ball.

This story is all over the local news, with daily updates! LOL!! a pair of osprey keep building a nest on a traffic camera over a busy road.  the transportation authority keeps removing the nest.  The birds keep rebuilding it.  People keep watching the traffic camera to see what the birds do next!!!  wildlife experts are going to try to get them to move to a better nesting spot.

Something else I almost bought.... these awesome Argyle Sweater top sneakers.  the upper is literally a knit fabric, like a sock!  supposedly very light weight, and good for runners.  Well, I don't run unless I'm being chased by something deadly.  But it is cute!

For the first time in ages, the window displays at Macy's drew me into the store.  The ladies' department was quite nicely displayed with clothing I was actually interested in- like this gorgeous jacket from Ralph Lauren.  Too pricey for me right now ($225) but it was a beautifully made jacket with really nice detail. (my size too- I really didn't want to leave it there!!!)
I ended up buying a dress with beautiful use of striped fabric- maybe I'll get a selfie later....  so, good job +Macy's !

This could be big news for a lot of people. I've used Blurb several times in the past for self-made photo books, and will also be using them for an unrelated recipe book I'm putting together, and I have always been happy with both the printing and product quality.

"It’s essentially acting as a lever instead of a wedge (Vipukirves translates as Leveraxe). A regular axe needs to be driven downward with enough force to separate wood along the grain. That’s a lot of force, and if a log is hit off center, the axe blade can deflect at unexpected angles. That’s not good — your squishy flesh is much easier to split than a log.
So what makes a lever different than a wedge in this scenario? The Vipukirves still has a sharpened blade at the end, but it has a projection coming off the side that shifts the center of gravity away from the middle. At the point of impact, the edge is driven into the wood and slows down, but the kinetic energy contained in the 1.9 kilogram axe head continues down and to the side (because of the odd center of gravity). The rotational energy actually pushes the wood apart like a lever. A single strike can open an 8 cm gap in a log,which i... more »

Hmmmm I think it is going to take a lot of coffee and/or chocolate to get through today.  It looks like I need to take another trip to the Genius Bar at an apple store as K's replacement ipod touch has some sort of processor/video bug.  This means there were tears from her this morning on two levels.  her beloved device isn't working well, AND I found out she was messaging with her friend before school.  (NOT ALLOWED.)
I am tired, I am achy,  I am cranky, and I have work to do.
I want to go play outside in the park with Beau and my camera before the rains start this afternoon.

Cormorant fishing has been practiced in several Japanese communities since antic ages. Called ukai, this impressive skill has been passed down over the centuries, and it is still practiced, especially as a tourist attraction.

I photographed this manhole cover in Inuyama, where during summer, for about 3000 yen, you can participate to this spectacular tradition for several hours, in a boat close to the cormorant trainer.

While this site may not be completely neutral, it talks about something I was trying to explain in comments on a previous post. 
The term "organic" has a "perceived value" in marketing that is not necessarily borne out by scientific study.
  Read it all the way through and you will see it isn't an anti-organic witchhunt, just explaining a meta-study released recently.

There is jumping the shark, and then there is excitedly fornicating with the shark on national television. I think that CNN is moving in the latter direction.

I'm trying to even imagine what a "rebranded KKK" would look like. "Yes, we want to ensure that political power is permanently in white hands and that any attempt by other races to establish their most basic civil rights is crushed, but look! We have suits on!"

"She had just come back from the park where two mothers were discussing a recent vacation to a resort in Puerto Rico. One told the other that there, for the first time, her toddler was given Jif peanut butter. He loved it. Prior to that he had only had Whole Foods peanut butter, which (one might guess) pales in comparison for a 3-year-old palate."

"When the boy came home and asked for more Jif, his mother told him it wasn’t available — that it was “Puerto Rican peanut butter.”"

There are many factions of food police. In one, "choosy mothers choose Jif", though in my local faction peanuts are illegal: it must be almond or cashew butter since peanuts are inherently dangerous, and not only to those with allergies. It's the phytates.

They found out that I eat peanut butter and now bring me care packages of home made almond and cashewbutter,... more »

A lot of people don't appreciate this fact:
Plant viruses account for half of the infectious diseases that threaten global food security.

In fact, last week a genius commenter with a degree from GoogleU insisted to me that plant viruses are fiction. Heh.

But this is a neat story of searching for the origin of plant pathogens, and the problems they cause.

Virus resistance might be found in some cases--but is not always available in the plants, but it's hard to combat them (as you may know from the flu). A couple of real successes have come with #GMO virus resistance in papaya and for plum pox. There's a cassava project that looks good too now.

Sooooo I'm not surprised that my Fibromyalgia is flaring up after 3 days of doing too much... (Golf event Friday, cleaning Saturday, hosting Easter dinner yesterday) But I do have to work.  Bleah.  Luckily the list of "must complete" only has my timesheet and triaging my email... I don't think I'll be much good for anything else!

Another journal sting only confirms this problem: crap work in crap journals is polluting science, and scamming people. This also has downstream consequences in science policy debates, because absolute rubbish gets cited as if it's legitimate.

Quick Easter summary- My long tall girl in her new favorite outfit.... I gave her the "meh" T Shirt, the Exploding Tardis Tee, and the Over the Knee Tardis socks.  My sister gave her 2 yummy chocolate bunnies and a white chocolate egg. 
Kayleigh made and decorated the cake almost all by herself.  I just supervised, really.  The peeps are sitting on nests of crushed ginger snaps, filled with jellybeans. The cake was DELICIOUS.
The family dinner with inlaws was typical and essentially fine.... need more wine though....
What Wine goes well with Peeps anyways?!!

The Hallmarks of Cancer: 8 - Tumor-Promoting Inflammation

After a too-long hiatus, here is my eighth article in this series :) The Hallmarks of Cancer are ten anti-cancer defense mechanisms that are hardwired into our cells, that must be breached by a cell on the path towards cancer. The Eighth Hallmark of Cancer is defined as "Tumor-Promoting Inflammation". All seven previous Hallmark articles can be found here: http://goo.gl/IDGfLp

As always, because this is such a complex topic, I don't want to skip details at the cost of avoiding TL;DR. So I've written a far more detailed explanation (complete with my own diagrams!) that is easier to follow on +Scientific American, and I highly recommend you check it out here: http://goo.gl/ThMpl9. In this article, I explain the complex relationship between inflammation and cancer, and how our own immune system can... more »

Yeesh!  company due at 11am!  I think most everything is ready.  Whatever isn't ready, well, too bad.  My anxiety is acting up so I'm hiding upstairs for a bit before getting dressed.  K liked her Easter Basket.  She is looking forward to eating the cake she baked last night!
So, Happy Easter! Wish me luck!

An excellent piece about the #GMO mosquito that's being used in Brazil to reduce dengue infections. It's written by someone with first-hand experience with dengue infections.

And let's not forget, Rachel Carson was a major fan of modified mosquito projects as a way to reduce chemical pesticides. Although the direction she expected to go didn't work out for technical reasons, the current strategy is quite similar conceptually to interfere with breeding of the mosquitoes. Here's a link to Silent Spring where she shares her interest in this 'fascinating' direction: http://bit.ly/KH0Mv2

(Sigh) K has a weird expander as a preparation for braces, and pretty strict rules about no candy. (that she totally elects to follow. I don't have to chase her about it)   So, I got her a bunch of Dr Who socks and T shirts for Easter.  But I feel badly there's no candy in there.  I hope this isn't The Worst Easter Evar for her....
(my baby is growing up! no egg hunt, no candy in the basket, next thing you know she'll be married and putting me in nursing home.... What do you mean I'm overreacting?!!!)

Greek Easter

Easter eggs are dyed one color only: blood red

Someone from my hometown shared this older post (written by Rita Wilson) on another social network.  It explains a little about "Greek Easter," and it brought back a lot of memories:

Perhaps tomorrow I'll challenge a guest to an "egg duel" and see whose egg survives when the two are smashed into one another because there can be only one

Hope everyone has a great weekend :-)

Sad. the vice-principal in charge of the South Korean students who are believed to have perished in the ferry disaster, has killed himself.  he left a note saying how terrible he felt that he was rescued and they were not, and to accept responsibility for their deaths.

One of the contests at this 50th anniversary of the golf course was to see who could hit the longest drive onto the fairway with these old Persimmon clubs from the 60's.  (217 yards was the winner)
