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 20:19:27348191523CC G+
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. And, I suppose it's a gift to those who are in the circle that I freely give with no expectation of return.2013-11-03 12:52:17133345CC G+

Danial Hallock7,489Collaborative CircleMy circle management strategy has always been a little structured and the people in it have always been excessively vetted before I'd be willing do endorse them.By now, most of you have probably heard of my circle "The Three Hundred" (http://goo.gl/kqE8h  :: 251 +1s and 48 reshares) where I vetted people through a series of iterative 'tests' to make sure that they were worth circling and, more importantly, worth endorsing and sharing with the world.Well, I also wanted to create a circle of everyone that those people thought were amazing.  So, I've been going through each of the Three Hundred, and circling up the people that they endorse and share in their circles.  The people that reoccur get added to this circle.For example, if Fred Flintstone shows up in +Sarah Rios, +Kate Savage, +Dede Craig King, and +Bobbi Jo Woods's circles; then he gets added to this circle, because he's obviously awesome.The idea is that everyone has some circle containing people in which they place a lot of faith; everyone has their "League of Extraordinary Circle Friends" (+Mike Elgan).  This circle is the first attempt to combine those circles into one super-project; and it's only the first pass (100/300 profiles scanned).So stay tuned, share, plus-one, and check out my other circle (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).#circleshare   #collaborativecircle   #sharingiscaring(Link to post: http://goo.gl/Ex9ai)2013-06-27 10:48:232111291385CC G+
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 22:47:5043927622CC G+
Too Big Has Failed0Our circle of highly interactive people on the topic of Wall Street corruption. This circle has nearly doubled since the last time we shared it, and we hope it will double again.

Hadrian Micciche7,927The Engagers ◦ Level 3: ☛ The Plus PeopleA circle of people who have regularly engaged with my posts by giving them a plus. Unlike many shared circles, these folks are vetted engagers -- plus they are all way cool.

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 13:17:463019914101CC G+
Ole Olson12,447This is my main political circle. It contains people that post a high ratio of left leaning political content.

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 17:30:17589312CC G+

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 16:40:4448423115CC G+

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 20:58:1649052430CC G+
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?

Shells Bells5,180Best of 2012 CircleThis circle is some of the G+ awesomeness that has enriched my life this year - and I am grateful.  A while back +Sean Cowen asked what G+ has meant to us.  After watching Brene Brown's TEDTalks (http://www.ted.com/speakers/brene_brown.html) I realize that for me, G+ has been a lesson in vulnerability and courage. I have been humbled by the courage of every one of you.  I love that women post no make-up pictures and that you all speak your minds (your clever, creative, crazy & beautiful minds...). I have been blown away by the public sharing regarding topics as deep as abuse and depression - talk about vulnerability and putting yourself out there - absolutely amazing.  By doing so, you have helped others in ways you may never know.  <3Inspiration's what you are to me, inspiration, look... see.  Led Zeppelin - Thank YouYou have inspired me. (warning TL:DR personal stuff below) Oh, & I did include some new peeps.  If they're freaks, blame +Ben Zaitz.This month, I gathered some courage and let three people see me in, what was to me, a position of vulnerability.The first was a very dear friend from Elementary School.  For the past few years, I avoided HIRLing because I was ashamed of my weight and I guess I didn't want to disappoint him.  The same reason recently kept me from seeing a dear High School friend.  I saw them and each did not care that I was not perfect, they love me for me.  Mann, it was great to see their faces again, talk in person and have some non-virtual hugs.  <3I attribute this change in thinking to your responses to a July post: https://plus.google.com/115807723984369772514/posts/Ui2TQBPuELKAmong the other awesome words from you peeps, +Alvin Stearns wrote, "Never again compare yourself to others so that you make unfair and useless judgments about yourself or others.  That includes comparing yourself to you in the past."  The third was that, with your encouragement on a private post, I actually asked a guy out.  I would have never even considered doing that a year ago.  (He has a gf, so no deal, but it's all good cause he was cool.)I know these are little things, but I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.  And thank you to +matthew rappaport, Bobbi Jo Woods and +Tiffany Henry for coordinating the first NYCHIRL.

quote: Even the notion that kids do better in school when their parents are involved does not stack up. After comparing the average achievement of children whose parents regularly engage in each form of parental involvement to that of their counterparts whose parents do not, we found that most forms of parental involvement yielded no benefit to children’s test scores or grades, regardless of racial or ethnic background or socioeconomic standing.
In fact, there were more instances in which children had higher levels of achievement when their parents were less involved than there were among those whose parents were more involved. Even more counterintuitively: When involvement does seem to matter, the consequences for children’s achievement are more often negative than positive

PayWatch: CEO Pay Hits ‘Insane Level’

It’s good to be a CEO, at least paywise. According to the 2014 AFL-CIO Executive PayWatch, released today, it’s 331 times better to be a CEO than an average worker.  PayWatch finds that the average CEO of an S&P 500 company pocketed $11.7 million in 2013, while the average worker earned $35,293. The gap between CEOs and minimum wage workers is more than twice as wide—774 times.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said that PayWatch:

“Calls attention to the insane level of compensation for CEOs, while the workers who create those corporate profits struggle for enough money to take care of the basics.”

While CEO pay has hit stratospheric levels, workers and their families have been left in an economic quagmire of stagnant wages, expiration of unemployment insurance for long-termjobless worker... more »

This Cliven Bundy situation has a lot of conservative activists and media personalities finally showing their true colors.

Here’s a guy who doesn’t recognize the existence of the United States government. He doesn’t accept federal authority because he doesn’t think the country should exist in the first place. He says he’s in the sovereign state of Nevada, and only the county sheriff has legal authority over him. The grazing land can’t be federal because the United States of America is illegitimate.

He is, by the purest definition, anti-American. And he is the new right-wing hero.

So much for all the “proud to be American” nonsense, huh? So much for the flag pins and the yellow ribbons and “support our troops”; so much for the Founding Fathers and the Constitution and liberty and justice for all. Oh, sure, those conservatives still exist – but youwouldn’t know it from... more »

CHECK THIS OUT

The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The bill has been enacted by 11 jurisdictions possessing 165 electoral votes—61% of the 270 electoral votes necessary to activate it, including four small jurisdictions (RI, VT, HI, DC), three medium-size states (MD, MA, WA), and four big states (NJ, IL, NY, CA). The bill has passed a total of 33 legislative chambers in 22 states, including the recent bipartisan 28–18 vote in the Oklahoma Senate. The bill has also passed chamber(s) in AR, CO, CT, DE, ME, MI, NV, NM, NY, NC, and OR.

The shortcomings of the current system of electing the President stem from state winner-take-all statutes (i.e., state laws that award all of a state’s electoral votes to the candidate receiving the mostpopul... more »

On The Shoulders of Giants

♀ A sepia print of an Indian woman, a Japanese woman and a woman from Syria, dated 1885. What do they have in common? Extraordinarily, each was the first licensed female medical doctor in their country of origin. They were trained at the Women's Medical College in Pennsylvania, the first of its kind in the country. This was a time before women had the right to vote. If they did attend college at all, it was at the risk of contracting "neuralgia, uterine disease, hysteria, and other derangements of the nervous system” (according to Harvard gynecologist Edward H. Clarke). 

An all-woman medical school was first proposed in 1846, supported by the Quakers and the feminist movement. Dr. Ellwood Harvey, one of the early teaching faculty, daringly smuggled out a slave, Ann Maria Weems, dressed as a male buggy driver, from rightoutsid... more »

The World Health Organization Releases New Estimates on Deaths Caused by Air Pollution

The World Health Organization (WHO) has released new data estimating that 7 million people died in 2012 as a result of exposure to air pollution, doubling previous estimates, and making air pollution the largest single environmental health risk. WHO reports that the data indicate South-East Asia and the Western Pacific regions have the largest air pollution burden.

According to WHO, the new information includes data from both rural and urban areas, and reveals stronger links between exposure to air pollution and cardiovascular diseases. WHO says the new data incorporate satellite data, ground-level monitoring measurements and data on pollution emissions from key sources, as well as air pollution modeling.

The new information is disaggregated into indoor and outdoor air... more »

Here is a high-end, production Volkswagen hybrid vehicle that gets 300+ MPG. It goes so far on a gallon of gas, its fuel tank holds only 2.6 gallons. The car is handmade using unnecessarily exotic materials and sells for ~$60K. Automated production using common materials could easily cut that price in half with little or no loss of efficiency.

But YOU, American driver? YOU can't have one. Ever. Nor can you buy Volkswagen's 85 MPG turbo-diesel station wagon that is made right here in America and then loaded on a boat and shipped overseas for sale.
You want to know why? Read this article to gain insight into how you, the American consumer, are being royally screwed. Every. Single. Day.

Hilary Clinton just gave a very good talk at the Marketo conference. While I'm
Sure she shared some parts from earlier talks, she tailored it for the theme of this conference, the issues of open internet and big data, and other things appropriate for this huge audience. And yes, she brought up immigration reform, high tech companies funding training in the US, and other worldly things.

"In another experiment Kahan and his coauthors gave out sample biographies of highly accomplished scientists alongside a summary of the results of their research. Then they asked whether the scientist was indeed an expert on the issue. It turned out that people’s actual definition of "expert" is "a credentialed person who agrees with me."

I've shared this article before, but time to share again.

[W]e’ve also always had gun control. The Founding Fathers instituted gun laws so intrusive that, were they running for office today, the NRA would not endorse them. While they did not care to completely disarm the citizenry, the founding generation denied gun ownership to many people: not only slaves and free blacks, but law-abiding white men who refused to swear loyalty to the Revolution.

For those men who were allowed to own guns, the Founders had their own version of the “individual mandate” that has proved so controversial in President Obama’s health-care-reform law: they required the purchase of guns. A 1792 federal law mandated every eligible man to purchase a military-style gun and ammunition for his service in the citizen militia. Such men had to report for frequent musters—where their guns would beinspected... more »

PG&E criminally charged in fatal pipeline blast

Pacific Gas and Electric was charged on Tuesday with federal felony counts involving safety violations linked to a 2010 natural gas pipeline explosion that killed eight people in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The indictment charges the utility with 12 felonies and accuses it of violating numerous federal pipeline safety laws.

Federal prosecutors allege that PG&E knowingly relied on erroneous and incomplete information when assessing the safety of the pipeline that eventually ruptured, sparked a fireball and leveled 38 homes in San Bruno.

"The citizens of Northern California deserve to have their utility providers put the safety of the community first," U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag said in a news release.

Prosecutors also accused the company of failing to act on threats in its... more »

Mary Claire King was a young scientist in 1974, but wondered how so many families had women with breast cancer.   She decided to find out despite the derision of her colleagues.  Seventeen years later she pinned down the gene, BRCA1, whose malfunction caused a huge number of breast cancers.  Not all women with defective BRCA1 genes developed breast or ovarian cancer, but there was a very strong disposition.  This was the start to a set of huge paradigm changing advances that helped scientists and medical research to understand disease and illness and treatment in an entirely new way.   Here's the link for this story on NPR and the interview from today if it is broken below the image just below:

House Speaker John Boehner had a problem: he needed to pass the Medicare doc fix, and he didn’t have the votes.

The doctor fix, or “doc fix”, sets the rates doctors are paid on Medicare claims. Without a new bill, payments revert to a sustainable growth formula at the end of the month, cutting pay by 24%. The bill under consideration was a straight, one year fix, with no offsets and nothing else thrown in.

Some members wanted the fix paid for with cuts elsewhere. Some wanted a permanent fix that was even less politically feasible. The bill needed a two-thirds majority for immediate passage under suspension of the rules – and the votes weren’t there. What’s a House Speaker to do?

Mr. Boehner’s sidekick, majority leader Eric Cantor, made a deal with Democratic minority whip Steny Hoyer, with support from Mr. Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, and the Democraticleadership. A... more »

California Drought is No Problem for Kern County Oil Producers

Farmers do without water while oil producers use what they want.

Curtis Creel is keen on saving water. He is the water resource manager for the Kern Water Agency, one of 29 agencies that hold water contracts with the California Department of Water Resources, the agency responsible for delivering water across California by way of the State Water Project, a latticework of aqueducts, canals and reservoirs high in the Sierra Nevada.

“Do you know how much water it takes to grow an apple?” asked Creel.

“15 gallons.”

“Know how much it takes to grow a melon? A single melon?” he asked.

“100 gallons.”

Creel has good reason to be informed about such things. The Kern County Water Agency is one of the largest contract holders for water from the CaliforniaAqueduct, a gre... more »

Fuck Scalia. These court justices know what questions to ask.

The first salvo came from Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who swiftly jumped in to question the challengers' lawyer if any employer can get an exemption from a general law that they claim a religious objection to.

"There are many people who have religious objections to vaccinations," she told Paul Clement, who was representing Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood, two businesses who sued for relief from the mandate on the basis of their owners' Christian beliefs.

Clement responded that each case would have to be looked at individually in terms of whether law satisfies the strict scrutiny requirements under the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).

The most forceful was Justice Elena Kagan, who repeatedly asked aggressive questions throughout the 90-minute argument about the legal dangers... more »

In his latest column for the New York Times, Krugman looks back to when George W. Bush was in office. Krugman stated the truth by saying Bush did everything in his power to cut taxes by giving breaks to the wealthy and taking from the poor.

Republicans have continued this same type of behavior of keep the money in the pockets of the wealthy while the less fortunate continue to starve: the foundation of an oligarchic society.

Two weeks ago, President Obama expanded the California Coastal National Monument using his executive authority under the Antiquities Act.

Republicans are furious. A bill to expand the National Monument was languishing in Congress, so the president annexed the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands into the Monument himself – just like Hitler. This brazen abuse of authority must not be tolerated. It was routinely done by all of President Obama’s predecessors, but it’s different when Obama does it.

Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) explains the scope of the abuse: “The President seems to view the legislative process as relevant only when it is politically convenient. Unfortunately, that is not how our founding fathers intended for the federal government to operate. I am troubled by the way President Obama and Harry Reid misuse the powers entrusted to them by the American people.”

If it seems like you are watching the Republican Party vanish before your eyes, it’s because you are. According Gallup, Republican Party identification has fallen to a 25 year low of 25%

Krugman.  On inherited wealth.

Matt Rooney of the rightwing "Save Jersey" blog castigates Paterson, NJ Mayor Jeff Jones for rightly calling Paul Ryan's comments "racist". On the blog, Rooney subsequently falsely attributes the same "racism" to Democrats. I would have left this rant as a comment on his blog, but he makes commenters register and that would leave a stink that could take days to wash out.

Typically, a political provincial is a hick in a nice suit. Racist views to him are as natural, quiet and unassuming as the sunrise. He doesn't seem racist to his friends and family because his bigoted views are just something he accepts as a fundamental truth, so there are never any hard discussions about it.

Case in point: a huge percentage (most?) of welfare benefits go not to "inner cities" (jerkwater codespeak for "black people"), but to rural... more »

Sea Level Rise Hits Miami Hard --- Streets Under Water As Sea Invades

Sea rise is beginning to affect South Miami in dramatic ways as many businesses and residents find their streets under sea-water more and more frequently.  PBS News Hour tonight did an amazing segment about what Miami is already doing and what they know will happen if they don't continue to make large water control infrastructure investments.  Here's the link to the video segment & story just in case:

Nature, the famed biological sciences journal and publishing group also did a very important story today in one of the high level blogs included with with one of their many journals.  It's about what is likely to happen if we as a world are not able to pull together to limit CO2 going from the 420 parts per million now to 460 partspe... more »

"What We Know" About Climate Change: New Report Released

I have been serving on a panel convened by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (+AAAS ) to provide a succinct summary of the state of scientific knowledge of climate change. The "What We Know" report has just been released. The +AAAS  summary, along with videos and other materials, is here: http://whatweknow.aaas.org/

The full report is here:

The image shows tumbleweeds in California, and is from an article by Justin Gillis of +The New York Times about the report:

Shared especially for this tidbit I didn't know:

Unlike many Eastern Ukrainians, who speak Russian and consider themselves culturally but not politically Russian, Crimeans identify strongly as Russians, politically and culturally. They were very unhappy when Yeltsin let Crimea go to Ukraine after the breakup of the USSR. Nobody’s mentioning it, but the fact is that there was already a referendum in Crimea on staying with Ukraine or rejoining Russia.
On January 20, 1991, Crimeans voted to restore their ties with Russia by almost the same percentage (93.2%) we saw in today’s election—where, according to the BBC, 93% of Crimean voters once again voted Russian.
