Stephanie Calahan513FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 1 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of women on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1310 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone (this is shared public too).If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  See the bottom of this message for the original post where names were collected.I thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless there is 100% warranted.#Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.What You Can Do Now* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post to public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share our brilliance.Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9t2013-05-08 19:56:31324401632

Nina Pelletier11,765I have been requested to share my writers circle many times over the last year, but I never felt right doing it. After 2 emails I received yesterday asking so kindly that I share it yet again, I figured it's time to do so.I have over 500 writers in my writers circle because, hey, that's why I'm here right? But sadly only 500 of them can be shared at once. So you won't get all of the wonderful writerly people I have met on this lovely world we call Google+, but here are 500 of them.  Enjoy and share.If I've missed any writers, please feel free to add them in the comments below.Thank you to this awesome community of literary quirkiness and genius. ♥  #writershelpingwriters   #writers  2012-09-12 15:13:0750121411

Melissa Bryan3,691Shared Circles - a brief heads up...I shared a circle yesterday at 100 and some who were added seem concerned that the circle has not grown from that number.  No worries... You were added... Shared circles don't update within the post.  They have to be shared again if you add/remove people.  Below I reshared the same circle.  You can see it is now at 108.  So have no fear.  You aren't being left out!  It's just the nature of shared circles.  2012-06-01 13:03:361081726
Melissa Bryan3,548The Ginger CircleI wasn't going to post this again this week, but we have reached an even 100! This makes my OCDness very happy. Also, you will be happy to know I removed all non-gingers (as far as I can tell) so now this circle is truly a ginger circle.

Amazonian tribes are taking matters into their own hands and protecting the rainforest land - legally given to them - from loggers' illegal deforestation. They capture, detain, and turn the people into the authorities, while destroying their equipment so it can never be used again. In my opinion, it's about time! Someone has to protect this precious land. If not the government, then the caretakers.

Many witnesses of poaching or other wildlife crimes remain silent, fearing retribution. An anonymous whistle-blower platform aims to change that. The WildLeaks project is turning information into action on the ground.

"The Oregon Supreme Court this month passed a landmark ruling that will change the way animals are treated under the law in the state for the better. The ruling will ensure that any animal can be seen as a legal “victim” in a case, affording animals more basic rights to protect them from abuse."
That might seem obvious to some, but prior to this ruling, animals and pets could be legally defined as "property" and thus not protected from most forms of abuse. The article explains it much better than I can.

Vermont has passed a battery of reforms that have turned the tiny state of about 627,000 people into a national proving ground for a less punitive approach to getting hard drugs under control. Under policies now in effect or soon to take hold, people caught using or in possession of heroin will be offered the chance to avoid prosecution by enrolling in treatment. Addicts, including some prisoners, will have greater access to synthetic heroin substitutes to help them reduce their dependency on illegal narcotics or kick the habit. A good Samaritan law will shield heroin users from arrest when they call an ambulance to help someone who’s overdosed. The drug naloxone, which can reverse the effects of a heroin or opioid overdose, will be carried by cops, EMTs, and state troopers.

Awesome interactive map indicating how much military equipment each county has received, including exactly what kind: "Highlighted counties have received guns, grenade launchers, vehicles, night vision or body armor through the program since 2006."

"The study — which was carried out by the world's leading elephant experts — found that the proportion of illegally killed elephants has climbed from 25 percent of all elephant deaths a decade ago to roughly 65 percent of all elephant deaths today, a percentage that, if continued, will lead to the extinction of the species."

The study and article indicate the rise of the Chinese middle class and the Ivory trade has contributed to this huge spike in Elephant killings.

Not just about the sad passing of Robin Williams, but also a poignant take on the state of the world today - Should we bomb Iraq again? What about the Palestinian/Israeli conflict? Can we affect actual change from the Ferguson, MO tragedy? - and a reason to keep going and have hope presented at the end. A good 7 minutes spent, in my opinion.

I think learning is fun.
Why the fuck does that make me so weird?
Why don't 'men' like a 'woman' who can think independently?
Why are some so vicious and cruel about it?
Why doesn't anyone want to talk about anything interesting?
Something challenging, exciting, inspiring, and daring!
How come voluntarily reading is synonymous with unattractive?
Where are other people who just want to learn?
Where are all the great teachers?
Why was I born in this time, in this place?
Not supposed to be here, not now. 
Why can't anyone else look around and see the cracks?

#Disgusting  

The NRA is supporting a pair of Lawful Ivory Protection bills sponsored by Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Rep. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) that allows Americans to sell their Ivory items (like pistols with an ivory grip), but tucked away in the fine print of the bill is the fact that it also allows Americans to continue hunting elephants for "sport" and importing ivory products from any "sport" killings.

"A number of African nations still allow hunters to purchase permits -- some 1,000 of which are issued to Americans every year -- to kill elephants from their ever-dwindling populations, even amid reports that illegal poaching already claims the lives of up to 35,000 African elephants a year.

Some good news for wildlife today
Macaque monkeys threatened by a reservoir in Henan will be able to travel across 2 hanging bridges, which the Chinese province is spending 5 million yuan ($813,000) on. The two hanging bridges will span over a reservoir on the Qinhe River, which would otherwise cut the territory of the 5 residing macaque herds in two, interrupting their crucial migration paths. Experts said that it was the first of its kind for domestic wildlife protection.

I think it is an important step forward towards protecting natural ecosystems.

Finally some Justice
The World Wildlife Fund says "about 30 of the nearly extinct {Amur leopards} are alive today". Only 30 of these beautiful creatures left in THE ENTIRE WORLD. So sad.
Yet finally, we see some justice as a "Vladivostok man faces up to seven years behind bars for allegedly having poached a "critically endangered" Amur leopard and attempted to sell its hide".

A short clip from Chef Gordon Ramsay's documentary Shark Bait, in which we see Ramsay follow the journey from sharks in the ocean to fins in a soup. MUST WATCH at least the first 5 minutes.

At 5:00 min in it gets graphic. We watch Ramsay shocked and disgusted - cringing - as he is shown video of how the fins are harvested...Violently, ruthlessly, and without empathy. It is hard to watch, but I believe we have a duty to bear witness to what these poor animals go through. For those who do not wish to see such horrific images after the 5 min mark, I'll quickly describe the scene: a 'fisherman' viciously hacks the fins off of a live shark as the creature flops helpless on the deck. Finally, after removing all it's limbs, the shark is callously dumped into the ocean to die a slow and torturous death.

If this issue is important to you, please give Shark Bait a watch all the way through. It is available on YouTube. Gordon Ramsay reveals the hideous practices and chain-of-events behind the 'delicacy' Shark Fin Soup (found mainly in Asia, China to be more specific) a bowl of which can cost $100! For a man with such a "tough guy" persona, seeing his empathetic reactions and passion during this documentary really drive home his message. Sharkwater by Rob Stewart is another great eye-opening documentary available freely on YouTube.

+Josh Fisher - We may have won the battle to stop Japanese whaling in the Southern oceans, but sharks of many various species are being slaughtered mindlessly, putting them in critical danger of extinction. I'd like to spread the word and stop such deplorable treatment of animals. Sometimes (okay, lots of times) I think we humans forget we belong to the animal kingdom as well. ___

A feral version of the Hunger Games?? Of course it will!!!! 

More cool graphics of proposed 'zoo' inside the article including floating pods in which viewers can "fly by" the animals, for an up close look.

Hi everyone,

I recently found out my dad has Parkinson's disease. I knew nothing about it and had to research it online. Now it is such a huge concern in my life that I want to take a minute to post a few links to simply promote awareness. Maybe the next time you have the financial ability to donate to an organization, you may choose to donate to a fund towards Parkinson's research.

Thank you for your time.

EDIT A/N: To anyone who has a relative/friend with Parkinsons, or even has personal experience, I would greatly appreciate if you'd be willing to share your story or any advice with me! I feel so helpless. Please share a private post with me, or ask for my email, if you'd prefer it to be confidential. Thank you.

A documentary with British journalist in Afghanistan, Ben Anderson, about the Afghan interpreters who have met every requirement for a Visa - and, therefore, safe passage from their country where they are being targeted and murdered for their role in aiding the soldiers - but are being denied legal entry into another country. Specifically, into America. It sheds light onto an important and ridiculously unjust situation which I did not know has been occurring. 

"The interpreters who worked alongside American and NATO forces in Afghanistan are among our bravest and most loyal allies. They played an essential role in sourcing intelligence and educating Western troops about the local culture. Now they're in danger of being abandoned."

Petey tries again and again, but he never manages it. For weeks, his parents kept bringing him butterfish, and he kept struggling. Eventually, he began moving less and less. On July 20, Petey expired in front of a live audience."

Macklemore speaks honestly about his experience with drug addiction. Super honest. I think anyone -- addict or past-addict or "regular" person -- should listen to this, because someone with a famous face and name always brings more attention to a subject. 

Please listen, try to understand, and spare a thought for someone struggling through the same horrible thing.

#truth   Yes, it's Russel Brand -- like him or not, listen to what he is saying in this mash-up of clips. Seriously, he speaks the truth.

"The remains of the corpse were found during an excavation at the Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick. Examination of the skeleton revealed the man had been fatally stabbed four times in the back, twice in the left shoulder and twice in the ribs."

Interesting article, must read! Who was this 'man' and why was he stabbed to death and with what?

Whether you watch the Pussy Riot doc at this link or another one, please watch! Be open to what is happening in the world and get mad! 

Pussy Riot – A Punk Prayer Documentary
"In early 2012, members of the collective donned their colourful trademark balaclavas and participated in a 40-second ‘punk prayer protest’ on the altar of Moscow’s cathedral. Once arrested, Nadia, Masha and Katia were accused of religious hatred in a trial that triggered protests and arrests in Russia and caused uproar around the world. The film reveals the personal motives and courage of the women behind the balaclavas and exposes the state of Russian justice through the court’s final verdict."

This is an eye-opening article for me--living in the Pacific NW makes it doubly important, but the problems the farmed-fishing industry has caused concern the entire world. Just thought I'd share, to anyone interested.
