Johnny Stork7,288Spirituality & Self Development CircleWe all strive towards various personal, professional and for many, spiritual goals in life. In our increasingly crowded and interconnected planet, we are often reminded of how each of out lives intersect and how each of us share many of the same values and needs. Many of these shared values and shared needs included the welfare of others, the welfare of the entire planet and the welfare of all living creatures.One way to think of what it means to be "spiritual" or concerned with "self" development is simply to be concerned with something, or someone, beyond yourself, beyond the personal. Holding a transpersonal world-view.The people in this circle share these values, these interests in developing personally, professionally and spiritually for the sake of all people as well as themselves. I am honoured to share this circle of humanitarian, compassionate, learned and transpersonally inclined friends. #transpersonalpsychology   #spirituality   #selfdevelopment   #positivepsychology  2014-02-05 00:55:3849011616

Fraser Cain779,548Super Science Circle - May 2013 EditionNeed more science in your Google+? Well, here's all the science you can handle! 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. Every little bit helps2013-04-26 21:02:03419226277

Fraser Cain759,117The Return of the Super Science CircleOkay, I'll admit, I made a mistake in retiring the Super Science Circle. I wasn't wrong; Communities are still the future and the best way to make friends here on Google+. But I realized that the Super Science Circle is simple and efficient way to get new people to see that Google+ isn't a ghost town.PLEASE SHARE THIS POST... FOR SCIENCE!When I was attending +ScienceOnline 2013, I must have helped dozens of people join Google+, and the first thing I had them do was import this circle. It's an invaluable tool for getting new people up to speed.So, I just did a complete refresh on the circle. I examined every single member and judged them according to my two-part criteria:1. Active in the last 30 days or so.2. Regularly post on scientific topics.If you know anyone who might make a good candidate for this circle, please let me know.As always, import this circle into a new, temporary circle, and then you can refresh it when I share a new version.DON'T FORGET TO SHARE THIS POST2013-03-19 22:39:3139967159161

Fraser Cain694,882The Final Super Science CircleWell, this is it, this is going to be the last posting of the Super Science Circle. Why? Communities, that's why. In case you didn't know, I've been maintaining my Super Science Circle from the very beginning of Google+. As soon as the feature to share circles was enabled, I was happy to share those circles around into Google. I did this because it was very difficult for people with related interests (science) to be able to find each other. I wanted new G+ users to realize this place isn't a ghost town; there are vibrant groups of people actively discussing scientific topics.But it was a hack. Each month took me almost an entire day to curate down the list of people, remove the inactive, and incorporate newly active people who often posted about science. And it was always imperfect. Some people got a massive boost in followers and engagement, while other, equally deserving people were left out.It was inelegant, inefficient and arbitrary.But now you can do this all on your own. You can go into any Community that matches your interest and instantly discover thousands of people who share your enthusiasm for a topic - just joining a Community will bring a trickle of posts about topics that interest you back into your stream. Keep your participation in the Community, or circle the most interesting people and harvest them back into your own stream.In the coming months, I'll be suggesting Communities you should join, instead of people you should circle. Thanks to everyone for using the shared circles and helping science get such a firm foothold here on Google+. Thanks to all the past and present members of the Super Science Circle for sharing such wonderful stuff.Science!2013-01-17 02:59:31420544084
Slavo Herman180I'd like to share with you the circle in which a little surprisingly I discovered my name. It is a circle with people who got one nomination to "Best of Google Plus 2012" created as the Circle No. 3 by +Kurt Smith.(He also created two more circles, No. 1 and 2, containing people with more nominations - you can find them at http://goo.gl/tAePD and http://goo.gl/7IBkV respectively :)2013-01-07 16:40:4448423115
Trever McGhee18,273+Take2seconds to click the add button on this circle!Last week +Kurt Smith asked people to name 5 people they thought should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'.  He received 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.We were honored to be among them, so we've created two circles to honor those chosen.This is the second of 2 circles from that list.Their all worthy of a follow .. a circle  to see what they bring to your stream.Check them out for a week...keep the ones that you like at the end of the week and then put the rest aside for another time :-))))People always ask me to add them or another person to the next circle when I share circles from other people to help them connect with others...Well I can't add you to their circle but what I can do is create another circle for you.So if you would like to be in the next one or would like to recommend someone,1st. please leave a comment of why you or they should be in the next circle, why people should circle you back.2nd. please share this circle to the public stream to help these people connect with others.I'll create a circle once a week with your suggestion.P.S. if your in the above circle and would like to be in the next one, just let me know. #bestofgoogleplus   #bestofgoogleplus2012   #circle   #circles   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircles   #sharedmycircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #publicshare   #publiccircles   #publicsharedcircles   #publiccirclesproject   #addmetoyourcircles   #awesomecircle   #awesomeness   #awesomepeople   #awesomecircle  +Circles 2013-01-02 20:58:1649052430
Kurt Smith21,124Here's The 'Best of Google Plus 2012' Circle Share (Circle 3 of 3)Last week I asked other plussers to name 5 Plussers they think should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'. They nominated others based on what they think makes a really good Google Plusser - original & quality content; makes you think, laugh, & enjoy Google Plus more; engages with others; shares and helps others; etc. We got 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.This is the third of 3 Circle Shares of those named the 'Best of Google Plus' - this circle contains those who got 2-3 votes. These are plussers other plussers think are among the Best on Google Plus and I believe we should all circle and consider following them because other quality plussers we can trust recommend following them.Like the other circles I've curated ('Thought Provokers' & 'Plussers Who Give A Boost') you can only get in these circles on the recommendation of another plusser (no "add me" going on here). So this is a quality group that should be recognized for making Google Plus better for all of us.Let's encourage quality on G+ and the best way we can do that is to Add & Share these circles. It took some work to put this together, so the best 'thank you' you can give me (and the nominees) is to add, share and encourage your followers to do the same.Circle 1 (those who got 4+ nominations): http://goo.gl/tAePDCircle 2 (those who 2-3 nominations): http://goo.gl/7IBkVWondering who nominated you?

Peter Smalley10,068#sharedpubliccircles   #science  It's been a while since I shared a circle. Let's fix that, shall we? Here is my Circle of Science. Here you will find people who are practicing scientists, science writers, and science enthusiasts - and sometimes all three at once. There are biologists, chemists, physicists, microbiologists, food safety scientists, mathematicians, neurologists, astronomers and many other disciplines represented here. But regardless of their specialties they are intelligent, interested, and interesting.I won't call this a curated circle per se, but I can personally speak to quality of many of these individuals. Many of them are true gems.FOR SCIENCE!2012-11-26 17:29:545015211

Paul Christen0To the person that originally shared this circle with me (I forgot who...)Thank you.I am getting really tired of the glorification of stupid and the vilification of intelligence. I am afraid that its a systemic problem and frankly, I see no end in sight. Its similar to American politics in many ways."Well sure, professional athletes shouldn't rape women, but the dood can throw a football!" "Well, yeah, he ran a dog fighting ring, but let him play football and be a role model to  children anyway."We had a President, that was re-elected, that on any scale was a buffoon at best.The list goes on, and lets not forget the other side  of the  proverbial  coin, how often have we heard politicians talk about the "elite smart people"?Watch an episode or two of "Big Bang Theory". REALLY funny show, I refuse to watch it. I saw two episodes and both portrayed intelligence as negative.I heard an adult say (and I shit you not) "Kids don't need to learn what the mathematical median is, its useless knowledge, average is good enough." I tried to explain how it differs from average and how knowing the average and the median can help get a better view of the data (no point in going too deep) and got "nope, not needed".Whatever, I'm ranting and off the rails here.Do what you need to do to keep YOUR intelligence up and those around you, for the love  of Xenu, fight the good fight. Following this  circle  might help.2012-11-07 13:15:584135110

Giving up on Android, going back to the iPhone

After 6 months of waging battle with Android and getting even the most basic phone functionality to work, i finally decided to call it quits and revive my iPhone. Why I am going back:
1) Tired of calling voice mail like on an old flip phone, the AT&T visual voice mail app just doesn't work. 
2) Tired of running out of battery power by 3PM in the afternoon
3) Tired of the stupid phone having bad WiFi reception and not being able to tether from one WiFi access point to the next. It keeps holding on to the weaker systems. 
4) Tired of being unable to receive picture texts. I stopped being able to get pictures when the SD card decided to crap out. 
5) Oh yes, the SD card stopped working. 
6) Tired of having to open two E-mail apps just to get to Gmail and my other E-mail accounts

Dear fellow friends in the Santa Cruz Mountains, brace yourselves for a cold night!

It's down to 33F in Boulder Creek as of 7PM. It's going to be a very, very cold night.

California on the verge of a deep freeze

It's 7PM, and many locations are already near or at the freezing mark. There isn't s single cloud in the sky, dew points are running in the low 20's. The low humidity combined with crystal clear skies are making for super clear visibility. The downside of that is that these conditions also maximize radiative cooling processes. It's going to be a long, long and cold night. There will most likely be damage to the citrus crop by tomorrow Morning. Even Southern California locations sheltered from northerly winds are heading into sub-freezing ranges. 

We can all thank the greenhouse effect and the associated stratospheric warming over the North pole that is pushing cold air down to lower latitudes. Ironically, warmer air at the poles is causing the massive arctic air outpour around the world. The cold air has made it all the way into the middle East for record snow fall in Israel, and extreme cold all over China.

Of course, the record low temperatures in California will be followed by above average temperatures with widespread 70's and low 80's by next weekend.

Why I am disappointed in Android

At long last my contract with AT&T has expired, and I will finally be able to get rid of this horrible Galaxy SIII. I am sorry I ever moved to Android, this OS has no discernible advantages over iOS. In fact, each update that was made slowly eroded all of the advantages it has. It's now an even worse data jail than iOS, it's become a data jail where every move is watched by Google. I can't make use of the external SD card because the phone refuses to store anything on the external card. And Android file transfer with the Mac doesn't work half the time. 

I hope someone at Google reads this. Too bad Google wasn't able to create a decent user experience with Android. I am going back to iPhone. My toddler is capable of using an iPhone, but not an Android. That says something about the usability of Android.

why I probably won't buy another Samsung phone

The Galaxy s3 destroys SD cards. And Samsung has known about this for a long time but won't fix it. See Android forums:
"Problem occurs on both S3 and Note 2 phones
Once it has killed one card, it is highly likely to continue doing so (new cards) based on what other owners have reported on their success of replacement cards
Someone returned a dead SanDisk and asked for a failure analysis (from SanDisk). SanDisk found the "dead" card was due to a writing problem where certain cells did not receive adequate voltage during a write command resulting in the card becoming unreadable/undetectable to any device. There is no fix for this. (I offered this failure analysis to Samsung online tech and was ignored)

No brand, speed, etc. type of SD card has thus far been immune to this problem (people have reported online the same problem with Samsung cards in their phones). Issue is independent of brand (cheap, expensive), speed, capacity.
Carriers will deny knowledge of the issue also (I spoke with my carrier, Sprint and they were "not aware" of any issue, and others have spoken to their respective carriers with the same response)"___

Welcome to Comcast Customer Support Hell

All our services went down yesterday, no internet, no phone, no 911, and we are in a rural area outside of the Bay Area. After speaking to +Comcast customer support for three hours, still no resolution.  Meanwhile I burned up a chunk of my wireless plan minutes. They farmed out their customer support to some foreign country, either the Philippines or Mexico, and the tech support people have no clue.

Then, they said we would get a tech person to come out this Morning between 7-8AM, but no one showed up. When we called back in, they said the tech visit was scheduled for Saturday. Lovely. After an escalation, they promised to come out this afternoon, we are crossing our fingers. But based on Yelp reviews, chances are slim they will actually show up.

We agree with all the Yelp reviews. 549 reviews with a 1 1/2 star just don't lie. Comcast customer support is broken in a bad way. #FAIL  Comcast products are good and priced competitively, but if +AT&T  Fiber bundles were available in our area with their UVerse, we would already have jumped ship. Comcast stands to loose a lot of business as its competition gears up to offer higher bandwidth levels.

Insight Meditation and The Brain

Insight meditation is a particular style of Buddhist meditation that calls for paying attention to all inner phenomena so that one isn't driven by mind conditioning, but is able to act with full consciousness. Brain MRIs show that in fact, the brain of long term insight meditation practitioners are thicker than non-practitioners. There is a very clear change in the make up of the brain. It's clear that brain plasticity doesn't disappear after childhood. 

This is one article of many that demonstrate verifiable neurological changes from meditation practice.

The upper atmosphere has already warmed, so despite calm winds and low dew points, the lapse rates have inverted, and higher elevations are running several degrees higher than the bottom of the valleys this Morning.

Even Buddhism is not immune to the mega Church syndrome

Every religion has the potential to get perverted, and Buddhism is no exception. The attached article was first published in the Bangkok Post and describes a religious fanatic movement within Thai Buddhism that incorporates everything from salvation to Satan along with missionaries, a recruiting system, a solid hierarchical power system and a plethora of superstitious beliefs. After all, it's not possible to create an efficient religious meme without these ingredients.

It is the abbot Phra Dhammachayo who has created this discourse, she adds. According to this genesis, there was nothing but empty space. Then emerged white and black energy. The white camp has retreated to planet Earth and created humankind, an ethereal body which is a source of knowledge to fight evil.

The White Dhammakaya, teaches Phra Dhammachayo, is behind civilisations and progress, while the Black Dhammakaya tries to destroy the world through natural disasters, disease and wars.

The belief that Phra Dhammachayo is a reincarnation of this Original Dhammakaya has made him an all-powerful leader who is both revered and feared.

Neo-conservatism #FAIL

NEOLIBERAL ECONOMIC THEORY CURRENTLY DETERMINING ECONOMIC POLICY A TOTAL FAILURE
The 30 year experiment to achieve prosperity for everyone by untaxing the rich, dismantling protections for workers and cutting back on wealth redistribution has achieved exactly the opposite effect of grotesquely further enriching the wealthy and impoverishing the rest of us via driving us into debt to make up for decades of falling incomes.  Despite this obvious failure of theory that has been no “impediment to its repetition” which British columnist George Monbiot says “has nothing to do with economics. It has everything to do with power.”

There are solutions left unused on the table and it requires some attention be paid to economic theory and its link to common sense and a sense of justice.  Neoliberal theory masquerades as common sense but it has betrayed all of us and especially the ordinary folk who believe it.___Neo-conservatism #FAIL

It's because they don't listen to their customers. I reported a Penske Truck Rental location that Penske closed down. Penske told me this location no longer exists. This is the reply I got from Google.

Can Quantum Biology Account for adaptations that defy chance?

People often seem to polarize across two extremes: 1) life forms as we know it today have evolved via Darwin's principle purely by chance production of mutations. 2) Life forms were created by God via intelligent design. Well, I don't buy either and I agree with +Jera Wolfe that these are not the only two options.

bacterial cultures have been observed to evolve clever responses to lab toxins at speeds that – just like the emergence of DNA from a primordial soup – defy astronomical odds. The new field of quantum biology tries to address some of those discrepancies.

Loving Kindness Meditation is good for your happiness and health, and it's good for your family, friends and fellow humans as well

This article outlines great research showing the effects of loving kindness meditation on the brain. If you're interested in loving kindness meditation, this is what you do:

Take someone close to you that you love very much, from whom you have benefited much, or for whom you have been a benefactor, and wish well being and happiness for them:

May you be happy, may you be at ease
May you be well
May you be safe from inner and outer dangers
May you be at peace
May you be free from suffering
 
Then, extend this to extended family and friends, all the people in your community that you like very much and repeat the same wishes. 

Then, try to do it for someone neutral, people you don't knowor ... more »

Then, extend this to extended family and friends, all the people in your community that you like very much and repeat the same wishes. 

Then, try to do it for someone neutral, people you don't know or feel ambivalent to. 

Then try doing it for all sentient beings.

Then, try doing it for yourself.

Finally, try to do it for someone you dislike.

At any time, if you feel you loose the feeling of compassion, start again with the benefactor and try to move out from that center. 

In the East, people start with themselves, then a benefactor. But because self hatred is so pre-programmed in Western thinking, it's hard for most people to start with themselves, hence we start with a benefactor instead. 

Remember, this is not a thinking exercise, it's an exercise in feeling.

Could someone recommend proper ways to root an AT&T Galaxy S3 from Mac OSX? Everything I am finding via Google search seems outdated and no longer works.

I am finally seeing the light with Android. Now that I've used the MotoX, I see that all the problems I've had with Android all this time wasn't Android, it was my Galaxy S3's bloatware that was the issue. Both Samsung and AT&T destroyed the Android experience. What Samsung sells should not be allowed to be branded Android, it gives Android a bad name. They should force them to brand it "Samsung Android" so that people can see the distinction. Thanks Google for finally bypassing the hardware manufacturers and making Android a good experience. +Android

We don't need the govt going after young people who download research articles illegally from a non-profit who doesn't mind sharing the articles anyway

This is absurd! Why is our govt trying to prosecute someone for wanting access to research articles from JSTOR? Taxes pay for most research anyway, and there is no harm done in making this research available. This is not only wrong, it's crazy and stupid. These people don't belong in office if they can't use their judgement as to who to prosecute.

Tried to load cyanogenmod onto my Samsung Galaxy S3 using the Mac OSX installer. I can't get past the "we couldn't talk to your device" message even though on the phone it already had the cyanogenmod logo and warned not to turn off the device. Is Galaxy S3 AT&T an unsupported device? Installing cyanogenmod seems insanely difficult.

The whole universe is instantly informed about what happens in it

Perhaps our notion of time is artificial and limited by what we can perceive. We experience a time-constrained "causal" horizon, but that does not mean this causal horizon can't be overcome.

This is a cool article about the intersection of string theory and cosmology. This passage in particular is the most interesting and seems relevant to pantheist interests. it also seems in line with Buddhist cosmology, which talks about the birth and death of many universes.

In eternal chaotic inflation, the big bang was not the beginning. Rather, it was a beginning—only one of many.

"We no longer can say there was one single moment for the whole universe when this happened," says Linde. "It could be that different places were created at different times." ECI views our universe, then, not as a unique phenomenon, but as one particular universe among many, each of which has its own laws of physics. The image commonly invoked here is foam on a head of beer: a roiling mass of inflation in all directions. Such a picture is some-times called the "multiverse" to designate an unending series of bubble universes, each one undergoing its own cycle of birth, expansion, and potential collapse. The bang has become the bangs.

Police Officer abuses his power, gives a cyclist a ticket for arguing, cop gets investigated

This is a classic case of police abuse of power. This officer has no respect for people, all he cares to do is to abuse his power as a police officer. 

The actual Youtube video is shared below, not the KTLA newscast.

VENICE, Calif. (KTLA) — A Los Angeles Police Officer is under investigation after a YouTube video went viral showing him pulling over and ticketing a bicyclist with little cause on a Venice Beach bike path.

See http://ktla.com/2013/01/20/lapd-officer-in-hot-water-after-giving-bicyclist-ticket-for-arguing/

Stupid Cop doesn't know what he's giving me a ticket for. Pretty damn funny.

Giving up on Android, going back to the iPhone

After 6 months of waging battle with Android and getting even the most basic phone functionality to work, i finally decided to call it quits and revive my iPhone. Why I am going back:
1) Tired of calling voice mail like on an old flip phone, the AT&T visual voice mail app just doesn't work. 
2) Tired of running out of battery power by 3PM in the afternoon
3) Tired of the stupid phone having bad WiFi reception and not being able to tether from one WiFi access point to the next. It keeps holding on to the weaker systems. 
4) Tired of being unable to receive picture texts. I stopped being able to get pictures when the SD card decided to crap out. 
5) Oh yes, the SD card stopped working. 
6) Tired of having to open two E-mail apps just to get to Gmail and my other E-mail accounts

6) Tired of having to open two E-mail apps just to get to Gmail and my other E-mail accounts
7) Tired of having a user experience that just isn't integrated
8) Tired of not being able to use the phone with just one hand. It's too big for my thumb to reach all the screen.

I don't know who's to blame, it seems to be a combination of Android, Galaxy and AT&T, but I am sick of screwing around with my phone. I want something that works. Android is a great toy, but it's just vastly inferior to the unified user experience on an Apple iPhone.

The Galaxy is a good little computer to use around the house, but it just sucks as a phone. ___

Why Upgrading to OSX Mountain Lion was a mistake

Instead of Microsoft's blue screen of death, I get Apple's gray screen of death, and it happens relatively frequently. This is one messed up OS, I never had any problems until I upgraded to Mountain Lion. And don't believe the 2459555 sec since last panic report, it happens more often than that. I get crashes that don't even give me a panic report.

Well, using some nifty node.JS and Socket.IO based migration tool, I managed to move my Spotify Playlists to Google Play All Access. Unfortunately there are still some gaps. It's pretty good and getting better, but for now I am sticking with Spotify.

Pseudo-Scientific Religious Babble

I have to admit that I have serious issues with science being abused to the sakes of pushing a religious and emotional agenda. I make a distinction between the realities of science, which present a common truth based on reproducible empirical results, and the realities of our inner world, which are highly subjective. Just because two or more people have the same "inner experience" doesn't make it real in a scientific sense.

Scientific results hold no matter what the person's inner world might be. It doesn't matter what a person believes or feels. The results are the same. However, inner "truths" are highly subjective. It's true that certain inner phenomena are relatively universal. Such reproducible inner truths fall within the realm of psychology.

While the results of science can be awe inspiring, emotions lie within the realm of the heart - in other words, human psychology, and that's where it should stay. It's better not to mix the two.___

Sneutrinos Anyone?

Now if we do discover super symmetry, can someone please re-name the  snot particle to something more noble sounding? Snot doesn't exactly elicit the nature of fermions. Meurino sounds better, what do you think?

+Jonathan Langdale mentioned super symmetry as one way to verify string theory, and Scientific American says "Show me the money". I am curious about life beyond LHC. What's going to be next?

I suppose I should let people know I spent the first year of grad school working on L3, an experiment at CERN, so I am not much of a theoretical physicist. And I barely survived Kip Thorne's mandatory general relativity class at Caltech because I think I must have an allergy to tensors.
