Jason M5,674Okay everybody ... it's that time! Yes, just hours away from a brand new year [well for some reading, you are in my future ... it's already 2015 in the Eastern Hemisphere ... but I'm on the West Coast of the USA... it's still 2014 here.]2015 ... according to the Back to the Future movie, we should soon have the Cub's win the world series, have hover boards, self lacing shoes, self drying clothes and flying cars ... somebody better get on making those things happen asap. I expect mine any moment now lol2014 was crazy ... good, bad and some ugly! For certain I am looking forward to a better year! For me and for You!Here is my 'Best of 2014' circle. [hint: if you got a personal or direct notification of this post, you are in this circle]It's a diverse circle. A few organizations/websites. Some great local friends. 1 or 2 crushes [at least 1 knows who they are lol], some of my Ingress Family [and some real family] as well as some conservatives [including two friends who at the very least "lean" tea party" but they're still cool I promise] some liberals and a good number of moderates. Some Christians [like me] and some Muslims and at least one Buddhist, one Hindu and a some Atheists [see nice and diverse]All in this circle interact with me a LOT! I value their posts, their thoughts/opinion and most of all, their friendship. Thanks everybody!2015-01-01 02:15:38117000

Brian D2,296These people are the "cream of the crop" people in my circles. I haven't reorganized lately, and when I get the chance, this is going to increase quite a bit, but in the meantime, these are some very interesting people to add.Some people here are ones that I interact with daily, and others are simply kept in my favorites because they have always been there. If you are a regular visitor of my posts, or if I am a regular on yours, chances are, you will be added to this shortly and are in my next favorite circle "Cool People."I have 3 main circles: "Favorite People," "Cool People," and "New People."Most of my favorites are still located in Cool People, but I haven't had a chance to reorganize. I also have many great people in New People, but it takes forever going through and weeding out people, so I avoid it. Plus, I have a thing for even numbers, so I usually add at once, so I can keep the groups even. ;-DThese people won't always agree with you, but chances are, if you enjoy my posts, you will enjoy 90% or more of their comments or posts.2014-12-03 19:59:0070104

Tessa Schlesinger21,767This is my inner core circle  - the people from whom I share frequently. Sometimes, if someone hasn't been posting for a while, I will put them into another circle. I divide my circles into:1. Inner core ; people whose posts I share more often than others.2. Engagers: people with whom I engage and visa versa.3. My science circle. Geeky info that I like to read.4. My temporary circle; when I try out new people.2014-08-30 16:22:3688534

Hadrian Micciche20,993All of my posts today are shared from some of the people I follow. They may not have me in their circles, but I don't care. I want to see what they post and almost always find it informative and entertaining. These select few are in this circle.People who have either shared my posts, commented on them, or both, are also included. These are people who have engaged with my content and are likely to do the same for you. All of these folks are worthy of being added to your circles.Want to be added ? I don't do the typical "plus, comment, and share this circle" circle jerk. You know, of course, that folks always include themselves in a shared circle. I don't need you to indiscriminately promote me by sharing this circle. Just share or comment on any post of mine you find worthy and you'll be added to my circles. Offer void where prohibited by you posting:1. Only shares of other people's posts. I need to see original content, please.2. Blind links AKA link litter -- that is, not providing any commentary with your posts.3. Too many cat pictures -- if only done sparingly and other posts are informative and entertaining, no problemo.4. Too many pictures of your lunch, your overstarched shorts, or other inanities. That's what Facebook is for. :)5. Too many memes.6. Too many cat pictures. 7. Too many cat pictures.(Did I mention cat pictures?)8. Slurs or slander about LGBT folk, racism, sexism...9. Mistaking your fears for reality.10. Mistaking reality as a left-wing conspiracy.Yes, I'm a picky SOB --  but know this. None of the people in this circle do any of that stuff. Want to add people who have been vetted, have engaging content, and will engage with yours? Add this circle. 2014-07-13 16:53:56216223

Hadrian Micciche20,273In this Circle: EngagersWhat are the most annoying platitudes? There’s no "I" in Team? Good things come to those who wait? It was meant to be? Time heals all wounds?Who are the people worth circling? These people. Why? Because everything happens for a reason. No wait, thats not it. Let's try again.They post interesting, original content. They share and comment on mine. They are likely to do the same with yours. Engagers and in my circles. They can be in yours too.As a platitudinous man once said: Listening is hearing with insights. Don't just hear but listen and connect!  Ugg.Use the circle. Share it. Be platitude free.2014-05-09 02:26:2720482114
Tessa Schlesinger20,569This is the circle of people I follow. I am not in it (so I'm not promoting myself). I follow them because they are interesting, sincere, have good stuff. Some of them have been here with me from day one.  They don't always interact every day, but I think it really depends on what you're looking for on G+. If you want people to interact with you, well, nobody can interact with everybody who adds them. There just isn't enough time to do that. On the other hand, if you'd like to read someone because they present informative, interesting, entertaining stuff, then this circle is interesting. I think it would appeal to atheists, agnostics, people who love beauty, travel, occasional humor, who are visual, intellectual, thinkers, humanist, and/or liberal. :)2014-05-08 15:31:52186503

Armando Lioss39,653“Active Engagers Shared Circle” 6.0Also known as the “Circle of Rivals” conformed by G+ users ready to stand for their points of view in an educated discussion and/or extending the discussion to their own streams... if you are looking into making your stream more dynamic, these are the guys you want to include... they are a diverse bunch of great plussers that includes liberals, progressives, conservatives, libertarians, religious, agnostics, atheists… from all around the world.In this shared circle you will find some interesting people to add to your circles, all of these G+ users currently actively engage my stream as well as other G+ users posts, so you can be sure they are getting involved in the Google Plus community.This “Active Engagers Shared Circle” version has been built with an improved algorithm that will filter occasional users and those that use hate speech or other nuisances to the common user. The main purpose of this series of Shared Circles is to expose new G+ users that are active engagers, but you may find even first generation ones in them.If you do not wish to be included in my future shared circles, please let me know with a comment to this post. I will remove you from any future shared circle I create, but I will keep you in my G+ circles.For TIPS TO GET PEOPLE TO CIRCLE YOU you may want to check:https://plus.google.com/u/0/111635150542674847021/posts/Q6c3ikBhdT3Thank you for your help making Google Plus adventure and exhilarating one… #activeusers   #engagers   #engagerscircle   #commenters   #topcircles  #circlesunday  PS: I don’t necessarily share or identify with the views of these G+ users, in fact with some of them we have completely antagonistic points of view and dissimilar interests…2013-11-12 20:19:27348191523
Tessa Schlesinger12,664These are the people I follow. If you would like to follow these people, feel free. There is no guarantee that they will add you if you do. You will be following them because you would like to hear what they have to say. There is no need to plus it, add a comment, and then share it in order for you to be added to some new circle which will be shared. This is the way we shared circles for the first two years. So feel free to add, or not. And I'm not in it so it isn't promoting myself. It's a gift to you, if you would like it.

Stephanie Calahan1,218FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 4 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 1491 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/DRFwReXQvbFFabulous Women on G+ Part 3 Can be found here:https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/7wiyEUFuKsHWhat 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.2013-06-09 22:47:5043927622

Danial Hallock6,197The Three Hundred"Completed" CopyAs most of you probably know by now, I have been working on a #circlemanagement  project for quite some time now, in which I sought to increase the vetting process that occurs when I add people to my circles.  As most of you also know, I've been absolutely swamped and have barely had time to share content (let alone post my own or curate circles), so it's taken me a while to get here.However, after only six months to the day (lucky coincidence) I've managed to finish what I would consider a mostly-complete copy of this circle.  You can see the vetting process and the history of it here (http://goo.gl/kqE8h), and as always I encourage you to add and share this circle as you see fit!If you're notified, you're in it!  If you do not wish to be included in any future circle shares, please let me know via private message. #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #engagers  2013-04-20 13:17:463019813101

Ole Olson11,096The Top 50 Progressives Circle on G+  This is the best of the best forward thinkers that I've found here on Google+. To be in this very small circle, I've set a few basic guidelines:1. High quality and volume of progressively oriented political posts from a variety of sources and topics2. Long history of activism on G+ and steady activity3. Strong Engagment (+1's, shares, comments) on other people's posts  I'm pretty sure I've missed out on a lot of folks that should be in this circle, but this is the best I can do for the time being, so don't feel slighted if you're not in there. This is a work in progress, but I can guarantee that you will enjoy adding this circle.  #Gplus   #Politics   #progressive   #liberal   #activism   #SharedCircles  2013-03-18 17:30:17589312

So very, very true

Silicon Valley Technorati Make the Cover!

A culture that makes TV's Mad Men look progressive. 

VCs that have no female business peers, relate to women only as their wives or secretaries, drive an industry whose sensibilities hark back to Fred Flintstone. One VC said:  “I don’t like the way women think. They haven’t mastered linear thinking.” This was how one investor turned down Kathryn Tucker’s pitch for RedRover, an app that helps parents find kid-friendly things to do, which has since launched in New York, San Francisco and Atlanta."___So very, very true

They should be furious

"U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa (photo) is now the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, after Republicans took over the Senate in the November elections. Responsible for subcommittee assignments, Grassley, along with the subcommittee's new Chair, Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, have changed the name of the Senate Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil and Human Rights to the Senate Subcommittee on the Constitution.

It's a clear reminder and example of exactly what Republicans hold dear, and what they have contempt for.

Civil and human rights groups are furious."___They should be furious

Great, thought provoking review

"I saw American Sniper last night, and hated it slightly less than I expected to. Like most Clint Eastwood movies – and I like Clint Eastwood movies for the most part – it's a simple, well-lit little fairy tale with the nutritional value of a fortune cookie that serves up a neatly-arranged helping of cheers and tears for target audiences, and panics at the thought of embracing more than one or two ideas at any time."___Great, thought provoking review

This debate should end, but for some it's almost become a religious issue - they believe there is no problem with climate change.

If Forbes says it, then it must be true.  We had to wait until the business community accepted the truth about climate change, before they would start to report the "news" that everyone else already knows.  The Republicans will believe Forbes, so I think we have really turned a corner here in the realm of Faith Based Facts.

So close to the truth

Today's Borowitz Report: Is Romney a Stalker? 

In a possible setback for Mitt Romney’s latest Presidential ambitions, a new poll reveals that a majority of Americans now regard the former Massachusetts governor as a stalker.

The poll results suggest that Romney’s presence in every Presidential campaign in recent memory has taken its toll on the American people, who have expressed disbelief that he would return after being repeatedly told in no uncertain terms that he was not wanted.



Additionally, many of those surveyed said that they previously felt harassed by the Massachusetts governor’s relentless e-mails and phone calls, and favored some form of intervention to keep Romney from contacting them in the future.

In an indication of how much Romney’s serial candidacies have traumatized the American people, more than fifty per cent said that they would support a restraining order to keep the former nominee five hundred feet from the United States until the 2016 election had safely passed.

In an interview on Monday, Romney said that the inauspicious poll results would not discourage him from seeking the White House for a third time. “I know that I’m the right man for the American people, and nothing they say or do will stop me,” he said.

But if you do want to read about the GOP retooling -the-words of trickle-down economics, dig in:

The new rules would provide for “dynamic scoring” of tax cuts, which sounds very cool and forward-looking but for the fact that they aim to assert tax cuts won’t cost what they’ll actually cost. This, in turn, will make it easier for the Republicans to shower money on their favored constituencies while pretending to be fiscally responsible. Dynamic scoring, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities noted, “could facilitate congressional passage of large rate cuts in tax reform by making the rate cuts appear — on paper — less expensive than under a traditional cost estimate.”

To understand the dynamic-scoring game, imagine a formula based on the idea that because infrastructure spending boosts the economy — which it most certainly does — we should pretend that an expenditure of $100 billion is actually, say, only $80 billion. Proving that this is about ideology and not economics, as Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) pointed out this week, the Republican rule doesn’t apply dynamic scoring to discretionary spending.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/ej-dionne-the-rights-wrong-idea-of-governance/2015/01/07/4c20ddb6-96a0-11e4-aabd-d0b93ff613d5_story.html

As background, the Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation provide Congress with a nonpartisan financial projection — or “score” — of the expected effect of proposed legislation on the federal budget. In the past, the CBO and the JCT have made their determination using a “static” methodology that makes limited assumptions about how legislation would change people’s behavior. Dynamic scoring will require the CBO to consider behavioral and macroeconomic changes that result from new legislation, such as they are fortune tellers.

Using static scoring, tax cuts are broadly assumed to “cost” a raw amount of reduced revenue. With dynamic scoring, the new revenue likely to flow from increased economic activity produced by a tax cut is considered, improving the accuracy of the projection. But new investments also create scoring problems: Under static scoring, a $1 billion investment in infrastructure is assumed to cost $1 billion, with no consideration given to any new tax revenue produced by the projects. With dynamic scoring, that $1 billion investment will “cost” less than $1 billion because of the effect of new jobs, goods sold and other economic factors.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-house-should-keep-dynamic-scoring-honest/2015/01/07/48912eae-94fb-11e4-927a-4fa2638cd1b0_story.html

As Jonathan Cohn put it, instituting dynamic scoring would basically be an “attempt to rig the budget game” to “make Republican-supported tax cuts seem a lot less costly.”
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2014/11/20/morning-plum-gop-to-double-down-on-voodoo-economics/

The change on “dynamic scoring” — ardently sought since the 1990s by Republicans — could ease passage of major tax cuts by showing that their impact on economic growth would substantially reduce their cost to the Treasury. The move is widely seen as a way for Republican leaders to set ground rules for an ambitious overhaul of the entire United States tax code.

Democrats blasted the change as “voodoo economics,” a “gamble” and “tax fraud.” Opponents said the rule change would invite politicized scorekeeping, further tilt policy to benefit the rich, and expand the budget deficit. Shaun Donovan, the White House budget director, implored the House not to “upend the level playing field that has existed for decades” and “call into question the accuracy, consistency and fairness” of congressional budget estimates.

“The basic problem remains that macroeconomic work is useful in the laboratory but not in the field,” said Edward D. Kleinbard, a law professor at the University of Southern California and a longtime chief of staff at the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation, which officially tallies the cost of tax proposals. “The models are too simplistic and the range of the possible outcomes so great that it opens the process to too much in the way of political intuitions.”
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/07/business/house-republicans-change-rules-on-calculating-economic-impact-of-bills.html?_r=0

How Republicans Plan to "Cook the Books", Enron-Style
The Congressional Budget Office will soon start using “dynamic scoring” to assess proposed tax cuts — that is, it will build in the supply-side assumption that tax cuts raise the economy’s growth rate, and therefore generate indirect revenue gains that offset the direct revenue losses. In the past, budget officials have opposed this practice, because it’s so easy to slide from objective analysis into wishful thinking. With Republicans controlling both the White House and Congress, does anyone doubt that future C.B.O. analyses will take a very favorable view of big tax cuts for rich people?

Have to watch this

Having been dormant for decades, the Ku Klux Klan reemerged in the U.S. after the 1954 Supreme Court Brown v. Board of Education decision, gaining momentum in the U.S. as the civil rights movement grew. That the Klan would rise once again wasn't surprising, but where the reincarnation took place was.

North Carolina was long considered the most progressive southern state; its image was being burnished weekly on CBS by the enormously popular "The Andy Griffith Show." In 1963, North Carolina salesman Bob Jones chartered what would become the largest Klan group in the country, which, under his leadership, grew to some ten thousand members. In the process, the group helped give the Tarheel State a new nickname: "Klansville, U.S.A."

My comments on CES, as I have been working in the Meeting Place. But I did get out a bit...and here are my thoughts.
1. New industries create tons of copycats, each trying for 5-10% of the market. Look at wristband wearable, games, and even drones. So many companies with nearly identical products, mostly out of China. There's fierce competition, with very little product differentiation.
2. Because the hardware is so similar, the big differentiating will come from software. Expect a lot of software to be buggy as it is new and still being debugged. Software capabilities will be greatly oversold for a while.
3. I would love tho have a penny for... The incredible wireless bandwidth being used at this show. Imagine 160,000 extra cell phones plus lots of tablets and computers, all online at the same time. Cox is providing internet service for the convention center, and I'm glad I don't... more »

Cox is providing internet service for the convention center, and I'm glad I don't work in their support team. The wireless keeps going up and down.
4. Automotive electronics are huge, and getting better all the time. I just got a 2014 Mecredes, and am getting used to all its features. New electronics, not horsepower or even style, will accelerate people's desire to get new, cars (remember when we looked forward to cup holders in a new car - we're so far beyond that).

Enough for now - need to get back to work.___

Put the Westgate Las Vegas on your list of hotels to not stay at. Never heard of it? It used to be called the Las Vegas Hilton, and now they re trying to convert it to condos and sell the units. This place is ancient and, white my room has been nicely refurbished, the TV system is broken, the wired and wireless internet don't work, and he only cups in the room are wrapped in plastic with instant coffee for $4. Can't even wash your mouth out after brushing your teeth.

And just imagine, you could buy a timeshare here and go to trade shows at the convention center every day. Sorry, Vegas sucks.

Thanks +Jay Dinan for passing along this well-written description of this research.

Cancer: What’s Luck Got To Do With It?

Grandfather smoked like a chimney, ate bacon everyday and lived to be 90. Yet, your best friend, a lifetime vegan who exercised regularly, succumbed to breast cancer in her thirties. We’ve all used these anecdotes to try to make sense of the deadly scourge that is cancer. So do this week’s headlines in the popular press, Biological bad luck blamed in two thirds of cancer cases give us license to bring on the bacon and booze? Not so fast, as the study just published in Science by Johns Hopkins researchers Cristian Tomasetti and Bert Vogelstein was much more nuanced than the headlines suggest.

♦ The premise of the study was the puzzling observation that some tissues give rise to cancers a million times more frequently than others: for example, the lifetime risk of being diagnosed with cancer is 6.9% for lung, 1.08% for thyroid, 0.6% for brain, 0.003% for pelvic bone and 0.00072% for laryngeal cartilage. Even within the digestive tract, cancers of the colon (4.8%) are much more common than stomach (0.86%) despite both tissues being exposed to the same carcinogens and dietary insults. To make sense of this, the researchers turned to cancer stem cell theory: that malignancy is caused by mutations in a small number of stem cells that retain a lifetime ability to divide. They then searched the literature to estimate the number of stem cells in each tissue. What they found was that tissues with higher populations of stem cells were more prone to cancer. This linear correlation (R=0.8; R^2=0.65) was pretty good, extended over 5 orders of magnitude (see graph), and makes sense since we already know that every time DNA replicates there is a finite chance of making errors and that the more mutations in DNA the greater the chance of some of them triggering cancer. In simple terms, a large part (estimated two-thirds; see R^2) of the variation in cancer risk between tissues is due to the difference in their stem cell population. This does not translate into “two-thirds of an individual’s risk of cancer is due to dumb luck”!   

Environmental, lifestyle and genetic risk factors pile on top of the basic risk of random mutations from stem cell divisions. To identify cancer types (red circles) in which the contribution of environmental and inherited factors was especially high relative to the random DNA replication-driven component, researchers used an unbiased clustering algorithm that used the product of the log values of the x- and y-axes in the graph below. What they found was consistent with what we already know about some cancers. Smoking greatly increases risk of lung cancer by ~18-fold for both sexes (23-times in men, 13-times in women), as seen by the higher risk incidence of lung cancer for smokers compared to non-smokers in the chart. People with familial mutation in the APC gene have a 100% rate of colorectal cancer unless the colon is removed. Infection with Hepatitis C increases risk of liver cancer by 10-fold. 

♦ This new analysis explains some puzzling facts: the same APC mutation has a much higher chance of giving rise to colon cancer instead of duodenal cancer because there are 150 times more stem cell divisions in the former compared to the latter. Another example is that basal epidermal cells and pigment cells of the skin (melanocytes) are exposed to the same carcinogen (UV radiation) at the identical dose. Yet, basal cell carcinomas are much more common than melanomas. The authors argue that this is explained by the underlying difference in rates of stem cell division. 

Why should we care about this analysis? Understanding the underlying risks contributing to each cancer type should determine the best public health strategy to tackle it. Early detection should be the main focus for prevention of cancer types largely driven by random errors in DNA replication, whereas vaccines against infectious agents or altered lifestyle will be key to reducing incidence in cancers with high environmental risk.

Great analysis. Being a police person is not nearly as dangerous as other professions

Are Police Deaths Soaring, or Plummeting?
One officer shot is too  many, but is the job truly getting more dangerous?

Recent headlines trumpeted large increases in shootings of police officers. From TV to newspapers we learned that, "126 officers — at "federal, state, local, tribal and territorial" levels — were killed in the line of duty, a 24 percent uptick from 102 deaths last year, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund." Police PR people and lobbyists blame the uptick on protests against police behavior as well as "growth in anti-government attitudes".

On the other hand, buried in some of the stories, is the rapid fall in violence against police and their deaths on the job. The total number of 126 has fallen by nearly half since a peak of 241 as recently as 2000, and is lower than the average for the last decade — 151. Both statements are literally true, the choice of which to use depends on what you're trying to understand -- or convince other people to believe. Of the 126 deaths, 50 were shot, 49 died in car accidents. So, the impression given that 126 officers were shot is misleading. 

Let's compare that to reports on firearm crime, which is almost universally reported as down. Look at the graphic on the right for rate of firearm crime. Using the logic of the police study, firearm crime is actually up -- having hit a low in 2007, firearm crime has steadily increased to 181.5 victims per 100,000 people. But it's also down significantly from 1993. But, even that is misleading since the 1990s were a peak for violent crime -- sort of like starting a curve on unemployment in 1933, then concluding every year is an improvement. 

So, why does media report firearm crime as down, but police deaths as up? Could it be because there are large PR efforts shaping the news, the NRA on one issue, the police unions on another? 

Of the 126 police that died on the job 50 were shot, out of approximately 1.2 Million police employees, 800,000 with "general arrest powers".

Now, one police officer shot is too many. But since police unions are touting the dangers of their job, let's compare that to other workplace hazards. Per BLS, policing is a bit more dangerous than the average job, but significantly less dangerous than truck driving, construction, and farming. Turning to serious injuries, being a police officer is significantly safer than, say, being a garbage collector. 
http://www.bls.gov/iif/oshwc/cfoi/cftb0272.pdf 

Being a police officer is slightly less dangerous than driving a cab, and until recently, the largest cause of death for both occupations was automotive accidents where the worker was at fault. Apparently, the large decline in police deaths comes because they are either becoming better drivers, or perhaps because of restrictions on hot pursuit. 

Being a police officer is nowhere near the most dangerously, widely-held job in America.

2. Fishers and related fishing workers
3. Aircraft pilot and flight engineers

Sharing in case anyone has this

I don't usually share my photos publicly, but I'd love to try something with this one.  This is a picture of one of the chair lifts at Squaw Valley in about 1963 or 1964.  I'd love to find a present day picture at the same approximate spot for comparison. I realize it may have been completely revamped, the lift location moved, etc. but it'd be fun to try. I don't think this is the base camp, I think this is one of the other ones further up the mountain, but I'm not sure.  It's not like I was around at the time ;-)

North Dakota, other oil states brace for price bust. Lesson to learn: A state's revenue stream shouldn't depend on one industry.

States dependent on oil and gas revenue are bracing for layoffs, slashing agency budgets and growing increasingly anxious about the ripple effect that falling oil prices may have on their local economies.

The concerns are cutting across traditional oil states like Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Alaska as well as those like North Dakota that are benefiting from the nation's latest energy boom.

In Houston, which proudly bills itself as the energy capital of the world, Hercules Offshore announced it would lay off about 324 employees who work on the company's rigs in the Gulf of Mexico at the end of the month.

North Dakota, other oil states brace for price bust. Lesson to learn: A state's revenue stream shouldn't depend on one industry.

The concerns are cutting across traditional oil states like Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Alaska as well as those like North Dakota that are benefiting from the nation's latest energy boom.

In Houston, which proudly bills itself as the energy capital of the world, Hercules Offshore announced it would lay off about 324 employees who work on the company's rigs in the Gulf of Mexico at the end of the month. Texas already lost 2,300 oil and gas jobs from October to November, according to preliminary, seasonally adjusted data released last week by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. On the same day, Fitch Ratings warned that home prices in Texas "may be unsustainable" as the price of oil continues to plummet.

In Louisiana, the drop in oil prices had a hand in increasing the state's 2015-2016 budget shortfall to $1.4 billion and prompting cuts that eliminated 162 vacant positions in state government, reduced contracts across the state and froze expenses for items like travel and supplies at all state agencies. Another round of reductions is expected as soon as January.

And in Alaska -- where about 90 percent of state government is funded by oil, allowing residents to pay no state sales or income taxes -- the drop in oil prices has worsened the budget deficit and could force a 50 percent cut in capital spending for bridges and roads. Moody's, the credit rating service, recently lowered Alaska's credit outlook from stable to negative.

Experts and elected officials say an extended downturn in oil prices seems unlikely to create the economic disasters that accompanied the 1980s oil bust because energy-producing states that were left reeling for years have diversified their economies. Nor are the effects on the states anything like the crises facing big oil-exporting nations like Russia, Iran and Venezuela.

But states that have become accustomed to the benefits of energy production -- budgets fattened by oil and gas taxes, ample jobs and healthy rainy-day funds -- are now nervously eyeing the changed landscape and wondering how much they will lose from falling prices that have been an unexpected present to drivers across the country this holiday season.

No wonder people are getting so fat. We sit at work and then inb front of the TV.

Henry Blodget of +Business Insider summarizes progress over the past century: We figured out how to save ourselves ~30 hours of work per week, and we now spend these hours watching television.

That doesn't seem to account for the time people spend on computers and their cell phones these days. Yet he claims that his data is through 2012-2013. (All this seems to be for Western industrialized countries like the US, Canada, Europe, Japan, and Australia.) A bit of good news is that the chart that shows TV watching suggests that it is declining.

The data doesn't show the US in a very good light. We each (on average) spend by far the most time watching TV, 293 minutes/day, whereas Sweden and China spend a bit more than half that much. The survey average is 224 minutes/day.___No wonder people are getting so fat. We sit at work and then inb front of the TV.

This is not the first Threat.

Hollywood Has Caved to Dictators Before

Pre-War Nazi Germany told Hollywood to cut scenes from movies, or to drop movies entirely -- and Hollywood complied simply to keep selling in Germany. 

Time.com: "The consequences of the arrangement were dire: The studios made no films about Hitler’s persecution of Jews at precisely the moment that this persecution was taking place. In 1933, Hollywood cancelled The Mad Dog of Europe, a film that predicted a future genocide, penned by Herman J. Mankiewicz, the screenwriter of Citizen Kane. And even films that did not directly address the Nazi regime were subject to suppression. In 1936, MGM cancelled It Can’t Happen Here, a film about fascism coming to America, based on the bestselling novel by Sinclair Lewis. At the time, Lewis quipped, “I wrote It Can’t Happen Here, but I begin to think it certainly can.”___This is not the first Threat.

Study: Dealing With Insurance Co's Costs Every Doctor $82,975

Finally found this number, from a 2011 study in the journal Health Affairs.
The average American doctor spends $82,975 on dealing with insurance companies. Across the border in Ontario, doctors spend about a quarter of that amount — $22,205 per physician — interacting with the province’s single-payer agency. Costs are far less in Europe (Canada's system is actually one of the more expensive, although far less so than the U.S.'s).
