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 13:03:361081727
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. Enjoy...Let me know if I have missed anyone or if anyone would like to be removed.And don't forget our Honorary Gingers: +Rory Swan & +Roland Davis #gingerthursday #redheadsrock2012-05-31 20:16:42100331627

World's Loneliest Orca Being Hidden in Tiny Tank at Miami Seaquarium
Her name is Lolita. She is being kept in a tank, the smallest of any orca tank in the U.S. Though the federal Animal Welfare Act requires orca tanks to be at least 48 ft in each direction, Lolita’s tank measures only 35 feet wide.

She's also been without the companionship of other orcas since another whale named Hugo died in 1980. In the wild, orcas are highly social animals, forming tight bonds with the other members of their pod for their entire lives. 

Read article to also see video of her daily life. Decide for yourself - humane and kind?

Kincső Nagy, a graphic design student from Sopron, Hungary did an amazing redesign of the Harry Potter novels for her BA project. She came up "with interactive illustrations [that don't] distract attention from the plot, but add to the story." I, for one, love what she did!

"The cover is simple: black paper cover, laser cut illustrations, and titles... the magic part of the book, that it glows in the dark." She picked a symbol for every book cover that represents a major plot element or theme (example: Book 1 is the Philosopher's Stone). Inside, the illustrations she created "with stencil [were] scanned and colored in photoshop". Further still, she made many "interactive illustrations" that pop up, can be opened, or reveal a hidden design (see the GIFs in the photo album). Here is a link to her project page:... more »

THIS OWL IS FLYING STRAIGHT INTO YOUR FACE!

...Anyone know what kind of owl this is? Owls are my favorite bird! Or at least, one of my many favorites ;-)

Seaworld CEO Steps Down Amid Tanking Revenues
Seaworld isn't doing too hot...Jim Atchison has stepped down from the CEO position and more than 300 employees across its 11-park system. All part of plan to cut costs due to the company's stock dropping 33% in August and attendance falling 5.6% to 8.4 million in the third quarter from 8.9 million in the same period a year ago. While the company is experiencing losses, former CEO Jim Atchison still received a $2.9 million payout. He simply resigned and moved to the position of vice chairman where he will also "serve as a consultant and advise the company on its international expansion plans and conservation initiatives."

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to quickly introduce myself! I'm an Anthropology student (transferring into a university to get my BA degree, then on to PhD eventually) in Washington state. Specifically I hope to be an archaeologist, however my interests are very broad so narrowing in on my major is going to be difficult (any advice?). I love both the "hard" and "soft" parts of Anthropology; like the "hard sciences" of studying human measurements, development and evolution in Biological Anthro, and the relatively "soft sciences" of ancient religious beliefs, artwork, and languages in Cultural Anthro/Linguistics.

The majority of my study has been on the peoples of Northern Europe. Usually pre-first century AD, but definitely not limited to. I hope to someday soon have the opportunity to travel there and backpack around! I joined this group to... more »

I hope to someday soon have the opportunity to travel there and backpack around! I joined this group to learn more, learn new things, and share my own knowledge when possible, plus perhaps ask for advice from others who have walked this path before me.

Thanks! I'm glad to be here!

Have you heard of Erutan (katethegreat19) before?

Post 3 of 3 - The Willow Maid (Original, from her album Raindancer!) by Erutan
Definitely worth giving a listen to!
Erutan is amazing. Simply amazing. She performs a wide range of music genres, some of which are remakes/covers of video game themes or a movie soundtrack, and some are her own compositions completely. So I'm going to share an example of each.

This winter is a lean one, I know, but it is also a time of giving and gratitude. Read +Shawn McFadden post below. Please help as much as you can. This is a worthy cause! Reflect on all we have to be grateful for, and perhaps give someone else a helping hand in return! Tis the season, after all! Thank you!

My estranged wife informed me this morning that she just got an eviction notice from her landlord. She was given until Friday 12 December to vacate the premises.

World's Loneliest Orca Being Hidden in Tiny Tank at Miami Seaquarium
Her name is Lolita. She is being kept in a tank, the smallest of any orca tank in the U.S. Though the federal Animal Welfare Act requires orca tanks to be at least 48 ft in each direction, Lolita’s tank measures only 35 feet wide.

She's also been without the companionship of other orcas since another whale named Hugo died in 1980. In the wild, orcas are highly social animals, forming tight bonds with the other members of their pod for their entire lives. 

Read article to also see video of her daily life. Decide for yourself - humane and kind?

This has always been a pet peeve of mine - characters in TV shows or in movies where they are stranded/lost/fighting for their lives always always look fresh from the spa, no body hair in sight. A little less annoying is when characters that are supposedly sleeping or, for example, recovering in a hospital, have a full face of makeup on. I know why and I get it, it's not real life, just a story, blah blah blah. It still annoys me. ADDED: +J. Nathaniel Smith commented about the use of "555" in phone numbers in movies...What does everyone else think of this? An annoying pet peeve? What is an alternative to using "555" for every phone number?

Gallery of Victorian burlesque dancers, circa 1890
(Images belong to the Charles H. Mccaghy Collection of Exotic Dance from Burlesque to Clubs)
Names of the women, and some description, in the captions.

Burlesque originated in 17th century Italian theater as a type of comic interlude. The word derives from the Italian "burla," a joke, ridicule or mockery. Burlesque can be applied to literature, music and theater. It's often a form of humorous parodies or pastiches of serious dramatic or classical works. It was related and partly derived from the English tradition of pantomime. 

The dancers in these images are all associated with American musical theater. Burlesque was popular in London from the 1830s to the 1890s. Often the performances were risqué in nature, with women wearing revealing costumes.

Burlesque shows were introduced to the U.S. in the 1840s. Influenced by minstrel shows and "leg shows," American burlesque was closer in form to sketch performance. It contained quick-witted, sexually suggestive dialogue and skimpy costumes for female performers. American burlesque continued until the 1930s, but concentrated more on striptease elements. A moral crackdown led to its eventual demise, though the art form has experienced a recent resurgence in some cities.

Thanksgiving? Or National Day of Mourning?

"...It is with mixed emotion that I stand here to share my thoughts. This is a time of celebration for you - celebrating an anniversary of a beginning for the white man in America. A time of looking back, of reflection. It is with a heavy heart that I look back upon what happened to my People.

Even before the Pilgrims landed it was common practice for explorers to capture Indians, take them to Europe and sell them as slaves for 220 shillings apiece.

Massasoit, the great Sachem of the Wampanoag, knew these facts, yet he and his People welcomed and befriended the settlers of the Plymouth Plantation... This action by Massasoit was perhaps our biggest mistake. We, the Wampanoag, welcomed you, the white man, with open arms, little knowing that it was the beginning of the end; that before 50 years were to pass, the Wampanoag would no longer be a free people."

"I think Bigfoot is blurry, that's the problem. It's not the photographer's fault. Bigfoot is blurry, and that's extra scary to me. There's a large, out-of-focus monster roaming the countryside. Run, he's fuzzy, get out of here."

"This product that was on TV was available for four easy payments of $19.95. I would like a product that was available for three easy payments and one complicated payment. We can't tell you which payment it is, but one of these payments is going to hard."

"An escalator can never break: it can only become stairs. You would never see an Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order sign, just Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience.”

So I discovered an #AMAZING website today! It's bettermyths.com. A guy re-writes well known myths in an amusing and intriguing manner. Here is one of many amazing stories (long but worth it, link to page below) :

Let me Ruin a Christmas Thing for You
So there are these animals in a hostile environment
they have wickedly hooked chitonous growths sprouting from their heads
and their feet are edged with a thin rim of razor sharp bone
these animals are called reindeer
and they have basically cornered the market for living in terrible places
I mean polar bears live in terrible places too
but what if a polar bear and a reindeer are living in the same place huh?
obviously the place you are living is significantly more terrible if there is a bear in it
and you are not the bear
REINDEERS WIN THIS DUBIOUS PRIZE

so anyway these animals... more »

So there are these animals in a hostile environment
they have wickedly hooked chitonous growths sprouting from their heads
and their feet are edged with a thin rim of razor sharp bone
these animals are called reindeer
and they have basically cornered the market for living in terrible places
I mean polar bears live in terrible places too
but what if a polar bear and a reindeer are living in the same place huh?
obviously the place you are living is significantly more terrible if there is a bear in it
and you are not the bear
REINDEERS WIN THIS DUBIOUS PRIZE

so anyway these animals are just chilling out in winterhell
digging craters into the tundra with their weaponized hooves
so they can slurp the lichen from between sheets of uncaring ice
(terrible places)
when they notice that something is amiss in the herd
because
you see
one of the reindeer
IS DIFFERENT

now what you have to understand
is that reindeer can see much further into the spectrum than humans
The world basically looks like a perpetual blacklight party to them
or maybe a crime scene
bodily fluids all conspicuously spattered over everything
especially places where you like to eat food
reindeer see ultraviolet light is what I’m trying to say
and it appears that one of these reindeer
has a SUSPICIOUS APPENDAGE
this dude’s nose is emitting ultraviolet radiation at a goddamn alarming rate
to the other reindeer this makes the nose appear very, very shiny
one might even say
it glows

This reindeer (let’s call him Rudolph, for convenience) is shunned by his comrades
this is because they do not want fucking skin cancer
and here’s this mutant reindeer with a tiny chernobyl going off inside his face
and he’s wondering about why he doesn’t have any friends
(oh yeah
in this story reindeers have the ability to wonder
there is no research to support this
but this is what is known as narrative convenience)

luckily for Rudolph
a local entrepreneur is looking to take his freight-delivery business global
he is not a very good entrepreneur
seeing as he has set up business at the north pole
and also he carries his packages jumbled together in a huge burlap sack
tenuously secured to an open-topped sled
basically he is hoping that the novelty of his operation will outweigh any disadvantages

anyway what this guy
(let’s call him Santa)
is looking for right now
is a cheap and renewable source of energy to propel his stupid sleds
and he has heard about this reindeer with the carcinogenic nose
so, on the assumption that anything that causes cancer must do something cool
Santa goes and hits rudolph up
he’s like hey man
i hear you are some kind of mutant
can you like
run really fast
or fly or something?
and Rudolph is like hey yeah
I can totally fly
that’s not really that special though
all reindeer can fly apparently
and Santa is like holy shit how did I not know about this
I’m going to be fucking rich

But santa feels like he’s sort of commited to rudolph
so he hires him anyway
and when the other reindeer find out that rudolph has a job and money and shit
they all start trying to be his friends
and he is so starved for affection that he ends up getting them all jobs towing the sled
and they use his freakishly glowing nose as a form of radar or something
and at some point santa starts giving out all his shit for free
which is pretty irresponsible because who knows where that shit came from in the first place
there are a lot of holes in this story to be honest
what’s important to remember
is that everyone died of skin cancer

/the end/

Just a quick rundown of concise, informative articles detailing why orca whales should not be kept in captivity, inspired by my previous post. Please visit these few sites, if interested. I promise they are short, to the point, and not at all graphic. Just the facts.

1.The Best, from the Seattle P.I., is also linked to this post as the main article, as it includes everything from multiple studies, to videos, photos, and interviews with specialists. If there is only time to read one, this is it >> http://goo.gl/7xT68o

2. Killer Whales are Non Human Persons. Yes, they are. Great article about their emotional, social, and intellectual abilities with the science to prove that, perhaps, orca whales are as smart if not smarter than human beings! See it here >> http://goo.gl/iYGWh0

If there is one news story you choose to thoroughly investigate today, please let it be this one.

See those two, small, metal cement tanks pictured below? Those cramped, rusted tanks are where 2 orca whales have been kept for the past "10 months" and counting, as an official Moscow Times piece now admits after much speculation and pressure from activists. These tanks (dubbed "solitary confinement cells" by the very same government sanctioned article) are only 65 meters long ...Did you know orca whales in the wild normally swim about 150 kilometers every single day?

Definitely not ones meant to live a life of such cruel confinement. In fact, orca whales are so advanced, scientists have dubbed them "Non Human Persons"!!

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.

Way to go Oregon!

"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. It will also be available at pharmacies without a prescription. “This is an experiment,” Shumlin says. “And we’re not goingto really... more »

"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.

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. ___

Denmark's cage-free zoo will put humans in captivity

Very interesting concept! Though the article is just a tiny bit sensationalized..."Bjarke Ingels’s ‘zootopia’ reverses the role of captor and captive to let animals roam free, while humans are hidden from view. But will it become a feral version of the Hunger Games?"...

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."

Amazing pictures of a recently discovered 'crater' in Siberia... Which no one knows how or when it was created.

"The crater on the Yamal Peninsula was caused by aliens, a meteorite, a stray missile, or an explosive gas cocktail released due to global warming, according to various theories in recent days."
