Vũ Phá0So, someone asked me if when would i share a themed circle. I share circles of mixes of different people because i think it brings diversity of the circle.Well people, should i share a themed circle? Well if i would, it would be a different circle though, and it would be less frequent than my other two circles.. (this circle and the snowball one)Well circle Yulia seems kind since she did not remove any people this time, instead she added some!So everyone, this circle obviously contains people. They seem to be pretty normal perhaps.  Hahaha! :-P.Well they engage with people and they have great content in their profiles. Some in here are photographers, philosophers, humorists and everything nice! These guys are not only suggested by me but also suggested by others. So yea, i believe it's a pretty great mix... :-DNote: If ever you want to suggest someone to be included in the future editions of this circle, just tag them in the comments!2014-02-06 16:37:31501537CC G+

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+

Markos Giannopoulos3,766197 interesting People // If you're into technology, the Web, photography and science, here's a circle to consider. Methodology: out of 3200 people that I follow, using +Circloscope I ordered them according to relevance score (calculated by Google depending on whose posts I engage the most) and filtered for a value over 30, then filtered for whether they are active (when was their last post) and finally filtered by whether they were in my "must read" circles. Voila! I hope you find it interesting :) #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  #circlesharing  2013-05-26 09:51:2119713412CC G+

Stephanie Calahan943FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 3 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging 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 1384 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmFabulous Women on G+ Part 2 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/DRFwReXQvbFWhat 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+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* 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 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 each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+If You Received Notification About this Circle--------------------------------------------------------------------If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified me or others in the circle as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9tI 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 it is 100% warranted. G+ Quirky Things to Note----------------------------------------* Google+ has a daily limit of 500 for adding people to your circles. If you haven't added 50 people or more today, you should be fine to add one of the circles daily.* When creating circles, you can only add 500 people a day (new) and that includes moving people around in existing circles.HOWEVER there have been2013-05-17 16:21:40353371128CC G+

Despite having about one-third of all the solar panels in the world installed, Germany in 2012 only managed to generate about 5% of its power demand from PV solar, while adding another 10 GW capacity in coal plants.

At this point it's becoming distressingly clear that solar is not the answer in countries where there isn't a lot of solar energy to harvest. The only reason why PV solar grew so much in Germany was because of the massive subsidies. 100 billion Euro to be precise got pumped into this PV solar program in the form of subsidies. This would have constructed dozens of nuclear plants or gas-powered plants, which could easily have outperformed the PV solar systems.

It's a similar story as in the UK, where an excessive investment in PV solar and wind turbines has led to a severe lack of baseload power, to the point where they had to resort to restart mothballed coal... more »

Today it's 45 years ago that the crew of Apollo 11 landed on the moon's surface, making it the first time in history that a human walked on another world than that of the planet earth.

A few years and multiple moon landings later humankind would leave the moon again, not to return again.

Likely it will be Chinese taikonouts who will be walking on the moon's surface in a number of years from now for the first time since the early 1970s.

While applying for a job at a clinic when you know that all of the relevant job openings involve something you have moral issues with is weird enough, but this anti-choice woman took it to the next level when she decided to sue the clinic in question, even though they had no job opening she could fill considering her anti-choice stance.

One can only hope that the subsequent legal smackdown and having to pay all of the legal fees will help her wise up some.

RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company - manufacturer of many brands of cigarettes - was ordered to pay a punitive fine of $23.6 billion in addition to a $16.8 million in compensatory damages by a US court. This was the ruling in a case started by Cynthia Robinson, the widow of her husband, Michael Johnson Sr, who died from lung cancer in 1996.

While RJ Reynolds has announced to appeal this case, it seems likely that while the fine may be reduced, the ruling itself will hold. As noted in the case, RJ Reynolds willingly and knowingly produced and sold a product which it knew to be addictive and harmful to its users.

It's not the first case started against a tobacco company which has resulted in monetary compensation being granted to the accusers and unlikely to be the last.

On the topic of 'it seemed like a good idea at the time' we have the Paris Peace Conference of 1919.

After the First World War the Allied forces sought reparations and revenge against who they saw as the instigators and ultimately responsible forces, in particular Germany and the by then collapsed Ottoman Empire.

Seeking financial compensation far beyond reason and by creating new countries in what is now the Middle East along British/French interests rather than tribal lines the stage was set not only for the Second World War, but also for the bloody conflicts of the Middle East which will likely last into the next century unless something fundamentally changes.

It was this treaty which caused so much resentment among Germans, forcing them to accept the sole blame for the First World War and demanding such ridiculous reparations that it would have bankrupted the... more »

Many question marks can be placed when it comes to the actual effectiveness of Israel's anti-rocket system Iron Dome. While the IDF claims it to be very effective, estimates by independent researchers show it to be largely ineffective. With possibly only a 5% effectiveness in taking out rockets, its only purpose appears to be as a PR weapon.

This article highlights the bitter tragedy that has formed due to an obsession with a collection of ancient texts which have only historical value. By attempting to interpret them as though they define laws, the vague phrasing (possibly mistranslated from the originals) and the contradictions between parts of the Old Testament and the general contradictions between the Old and New Testament leave one utterly bewildered.

Here is one point where religious freedom has to be curbed and science given priority. We know that homosexuality is a natural condition which is at least neurological (brain configuration) and which occurs with virtually every species of animal.

To attempt to condemn it appears to be more the result of self-inflicted social trauma than based on the scientific facts. Both the pro and anti homosexual sides in this discussion are wrong. It's not about whether this... more »

The UK will not get rid of its nuclear weapons, instead opting for updating its current collection of nuclear weapons and nuclear-capable submarines. This is the conclusion of the commission set up to investigate the pros and cons.

One of the reasons cited by the commission is that in the face of the continued aggression by countries like Russia disarming oneself makes precious little sense, something which the Ukraine would probably agree with at this point.

Faced with an hours-long delay, the pilot of a Frontier Airlines flight decided to not only still his own hunger, but to also order enough pizza for all of his passengers. Paying for the monster order with his own money, he stated that while the airline he works for might be cheap, he isn't :)

The Japanese government has launched a voluntary power-saving campaign for businesses and households in order to conserve energy. It's the first summer since the March 2011 tsunami that all of the nation's nuclear power stations are off-line. There are considerable worries that there may be a shortage of power during the hottest summer days, resulting in black-outs.

Despite grumbling on the Christian Right side that contraceptives only cause more pregnancies and various types of heinous behaviour, the statistics for Colorado show that teen pregnancies have been dropping steadily over the past five years after introducing a program which provides teens with cheap or free access to contraceptives.

The savings in Medicaid costs have been significant too, with each dollar spent giving an over five times return rate compared to before the program started.

While the article doesn't mention the personal effects of this program, it's important to note that the abortion rate has dropped along with these other results, as well as instances of maternal depression which would require mental health professionals.

It seems unimaginable that the Supreme Court judges in favour of Hobby Lobby's petition to control its employees access to contraception coverage could not have foreseen that this would horribly back-fire, with the last-minute 'third-party coverage' option unworkable in hindsight.

Many things here seem rather remarkable. First of all that there is a major gender gap between these judges, with all of the male judges in favour of granting Hobby Lobby this ability, while female judges overwhelmingly against this decision, calling it a 'minefield' and similar.

Secondly that the female judges seem to have been proven right already, only days after the original ruling. A flood of cases are being appealed or brought in new which would not only grant other companies the same control over its employees, but go much further, denying all types of contraceptives and anything... more »

So I guess the next logical step will be for religious leaders to formally request that the government add an exemption for anyone who decides to kill another person as long as it's on religious grounds.

I thought we got non-religious governments to get rid of the religion-induced madness of history? Is this 'Freedom of religion' taken far beyond its original context?

Palmer amaranth is a type of pigweed. It has some impressive numbers associated with it, such as its ability to grow about 5 cm a day, up to over 2 meters tall. Each plant will develop and release around a million seeds. Finally, it has also become resistant to herbicides in Iowa and other US states.

The main reason for this quick rise of herbicide-resistant form of pigweed (along with 13 other types of weeds) is the lack of crop rotation. Farmers now grow the same crop every year on the same ground where they used to make life hard for weeds by rotation.

While GMO crops have staved off this scenario for a while by allowing decreased use of herbicides, the options for farmers to deal with this scourge have rapidly diminished. Once Palmer amaranth takes hold in one field it will quickly envelop it and spread to surrounding fields.

Today's cigarettes are quite unlike those of fifty years ago. Many chemicals and flavours were added to reduce the bitterness, increase the nicotine content and improve the absorption of the nicotine by dilating the lungs and increasing the transfer of the nicotine into the blood stream.

That they are now also twice as likely to cause cancer is an irrelevant effect in the eyes of Big Tobacco, who seem to have no moral issues with targeting children and young teenagers with their 'product'. Most smokers start before the age of 18, making it clear what Big Tobacco's target market is.

Hook 'em young, hook 'em early. 'nuff said.

The vacuum tube is back. Well, kinda.

NASA scientists have created a transistor prototype which operates on a similar principle as a vacuum tube, just much smaller (nanometers instead of millimeters) and using helium instead of a vacuum. Together with silicon-germanium-based transistors we could soon see new advancements in medical imaging, genetic analysis and other areas where the THz switching speeds would be most beneficial.

More confusion on how to interpret the correlation between a small reward center in the brain and the tendency to watch more pornographic material.

If there is no causal link between watching pornographic material and the less developed striatum, then maybe the inverse is true, in that individuals whose striatum is less developed will need more stimulation to feel 'rewarded', whether it's in daily life or when it comes to sex.

This would make the viewing of pornographic material a symptom rather than a cause, together with other personality traits.

Despite efforts to decrease its use, coal is still the most important fuel world-wide, reaching a new high since 1970.

While Europe and the US have been decreasing their use of coal, it's been largely replaced by natural gas there, with India, China and other countries increasing their use of coal.

Manzanar is probably best known as the location of one of the ten concentration camps in the US during the Second World War. Yet throughout its history it's been the site of many forced relocations.

Originally inhabited by Native Americans, they were forced away by settlers when gold and such was discovered in the valley. Later it became a rich ranching area until in the early 20th century the city of Los Angeles bought all of the water rights in the valley to quench its citizen's thirst. This drained the valley of virtually all its water, forcing its inhabitants to leave.

Years later the Manzanar camp was created in the early 1940s as one of the concentration camps to hold the over 120,000 Japanese-Americans forcefully relocated during the war. Manzanar held over 10,000 in often brutal conditions. 146 of its prisoners died.

This has to be one of the first times that the effects of the road salt used during winters has been studied. In this case it concerned the health of butterflies when they eat from roadside plants.

The study shows that first of all it highly increases the mortality among caterpillars, then the surviving caterpillars once morphed into butterflies show significant physical differences. For male monarch butterflies it increases their muscle mass, for females their brain and eye size.

One concern the study places is that for female monarch butterflies migration during winter times may become impossible as they wouldn't have the strength for it with the additional body mass.

A 3-year old girl got shooed out of a KFC restaurant by personnel because 'her appearance was upsetting to the other customers'. This girl had suffered massive injuries to her face due to an attack by pit bulls, losing one of her eyes and much of her facial bones.

Upon receiving the complaint, KFC has launched an investigation into the event and donated $30,000 to the girl's recovery process.

While undoubtedly KFC had little choice in this matter on how to respond to it, it's still heart-warming to see them do the right thing in such an overwhelming way.

Stop the rape epidemic in India

Two young girls were hanged from a tree after being gang raped in the fields outside their home in India and a minister from the ruling party just responded by saying that rape "is a social crime ... sometimes it's right, sometimes it's wrong.”

… But this is a national crisis and it requires drastic action. Let's join with an Indian movement to get urgent action to stop violence against women.

Avaaz is promoting an advertising campaign designed to embarrass India's government into taking action:

My country’s new leader ran on the promise of rebuilding the holy city, Varanasi, where he was elected, as a major tourist hub. If we build a millions-strong global call for the protection of women and plaster it all over Prime Minister Modi's city, he'll be forced to act to save his tourism plan.... more »

The UK had to mothball many of its fossil fuel power plants the past years because they were too polluting, didn't bother to invest in proper replacements as wind and solar power took priority and is now left with the prospect of rolling black-outs if a solution isn't found soon. Rationing of electricity appears to be the first step for factories. Bringing back online some of the polluting fossil fuel power plants the next, just so that the UK won't be without power the coming winter.

I bet some in the UK are wishing that they had started building those nuclear plants a bit sooner, or added a few more gas-fired power plants.

You know it's bad when there's really nothing positive one can say about an amazing new fighter jet.

Worse than 15-20 year old US and Swedish tech?

Former residents of Tomioka, a city about ten kilometers from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, are still unsure whether they'll be able to return to their homes after their evacuation in 2011. Even after three years they find it hard to give up on what they used to call their home and start anew.

It's quite bitter to realize that all of these people have to spend all these years in limbo because of wide-spread corruption and incompetence among both TEPCO as owner of the power plant and the Japanese government. Lack of oversight and a refusal to implement safety features added to similar reactors outside Japan as well as a complete ignoring of facts about previous tsunamis made it an unavoidable accident, worsened by the government's subsequent bungling of the accident response and the complete refusal to accept outside help.

Fukushima Daiichi should leave a bitter... more »

At Leith Harbour on South Georgia, very remote in the South Atlantic, is one of the last signs of Britain's whaling efforts. The whaling station here got abandoned in 1965 when alternatives to the oils and fats from whales took over.

Those who used to work at this whaling station still have many memories of these times, though many of them struggle with their partaking in the near-extinction of whales in the 20th century. Why many ended up working in the whaling industry was mostly because it earned so well and because the resulting oils and fats were deemed essential to Britain, especially after the Second World War.

Now, the abandoned remains of this whaling station are left to rust and decay in near-complete solitude and isolation.

When popular outrage manages to completely miss the point.

Is deterring homeless people from sleeping rough a horrible thing, or rather a humane, healthy decision?

I don't even know what these people were thinking. To me they seem the type who would giggle gleefully at a movie like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the Saw series.

Forget 'perversion of social media'. This is just sick, perverted, psychopathic behaviour.

So the slippery slope with marriage can go both ways, it seems: in Virginia an official refused to marry a couple 'because they weren't Christians', proclaiming that marriage is only for those who 'know God'.

It would be interesting if this becomes the new struggle: instead of fighting for marriage for same-sex couples, non-Christian couples would be fighting for this right instead.

Not that it should affect one's relationship in any manner, form or shape, of course. In the end it's just a way to get a tax break :)

German research on the brains of 64 men has linked the viewing of pornographic material with a smaller striatum, the part of the brain involved in rewards. It also indicated a weak link between the striatum and the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain involved in decision making and judgement.

Whether pornographic material causes this brain development or that the latter is a result of the former is unknown at this point. Suggested is however that people who frequently view pornographic material may be lazier, less motivated individuals who more frequently make poor decisions. Additional research will have to fill in these details.
