Science on Google+663,343Please join us on 5/5 for a @105917944266111687812 HOA with Dr.@101190098041697372043, Professor of Neurobiology, Biomedical Engineering, Psychology, and Neuroscience at @116716695368502903076, and founder of Duke's Center for Neuroengineering. Dr. Nicolelis is a pioneer in neuronal population coding (simultaneously recording from hundreds to thousands of neurons), Brain Machine Interface (controlling robotic or avatar limbs with thoughts), neuroprosthetics (prosthetic limbs that directly communicate with sensory and motor cortices), and Brain to Brain Interface (tactile or visual information encoded by rat 1 is decoded by rat 2). Dr. Nicolelis has published over 200 peer-reviewed articles, with many of these publications appearing in high impact journals such as _Nature_, _Science_, and _Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences_ (see below for a short list of publications). More recently, Dr. Nicolelis’ research made it possible for a quadriplegic child to use his mind to control a bionic exoskeleton and kickoff the opening game at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. RSVP “yes” to add this event to your calendar. We will open up the Q & A app so feel free to post your questions on this event post or by using the app during the hangout. *Relevant Links:* Faculty page: http://goo.gl/qs8NfM  Lab page: http://www.nicolelislab.net  2012 Ted Talk: http://goo.gl/kxCxT8  2014 Ted Talk: http://goo.gl/23OqmV  Book: http://goo.gl/x7Kg5J  *Relevant Readings (see http://goo.gl/nQadag for a more exhaustive list):* Schwarz D, Lebedev MA, Tate A, Hanson T, Lehew G, Melloy J, Dimitrov D, Nicolelis MAL.

Astronomers Without Borders231,748Astronauts Ron Garan and Anousheh Ansari join us for this special AWB Hangout, "Astronomy In the Development of STEM Education". Though often neglected in traditional educational systems, astronomy is an ideal way to present science and other technical fields in schools. With limited resources, especially in developing countries, astronomy offers an accessible "laboratory" in a subject that already fascinates children. AWB's Telescopes to Tanzania is just one example of how astronomy is used to promote science learning and curriculum-building in developing countries. This panel discussion will look at how astronomy has been used for development and the opportunities that remain. Guests: Ron Garan is a former astronaut, aquanaut, and test pilot who is also an entrepreneur. He has founded multiple companies and socially-focused organizations. His social media following of 3.6 million makes him one of Google Plus’ “Top 25 Followed”, and a Kred “Top 1% Influencer”. Anousheh Ansari was a co-sponsor of the $10 million Ansari X Prize for the first private launch of a reusable manned spacecraft, and the first female private space explorer. She is a serial entrepreneur and currently the chairman of Prodea Systems which she co-founded. Kevin Govender is the Director of the International Astronomical Union's Office of Astronomy for Development in South Africa, which was created to use astronomy to make the world a better place. Mponda Malozo is an environmentalist in Tanzania who also works with the educational system as a science consultant promotes astronomy through outreach activities. He is the Tanzania Coordinator of the Universe Awareness Foundation and a project manager for AWB's Telescopes to Tanzania.Astronomy For the Development of STEM Education2014-08-06 18:00:0090  
Daria Musk3,705,979*Expand to read the story and learn how to join live!* Three years ago to the day, I stood in front of my computer - a guitar in my hands, songs in my heart, fingers trembling - about to press a button that said, "Hangout". I was still waterlogged with rainy nights of lugging my amps into tiny clubs and tears from the not-knowing-what-would-happen to my dreams. That night, when I hit "Hangout" you saved my dreams, you saved me. Your faces popped in. We sang all night. Six hours later my heart was six million times bigger and I would never be the same. Every year I want to celebrate that day. I want to thank you face to face. I want to meet back at our special place and sing your praises. It's time for Hangoutiversary III.  *PLEASE, BE CELEBRATED* So please, meet me on July 16th. Right here, inside the place where we had our virtual first date. Comment back and let me know that you're planning to come, I will organize special circles of you all, so we can rotate the 10 seats and meet and meet and meet again. I'll sing our songs of celebration. I'll sing new songs of adoration, to you and this crazy world that gives us a chance just when we think maybe it can't. Come with your hopes and your dreams to be amplified and your updates and your friends and families and fantasies. Let's sing 'til our throats go weak and dance in front of computer screens, like the silly beautiful people we know ourselves to be.   *HOW TO HANG* In case you're new or rusty all you have to do to join this Hangout is:   ✪ RSVP a big fat *yes* here. ✪ On Wednesday, July 16th come back to this page when the Hangout starts (6PM Eastern US Time). ✪ You can watch or click "join" to on my page @100974258168375166691! ✪ Don't for get to comment and let me know if you want to join and around what time. I'll be sure to circle you and invite you when you're web-camera-ready! ✪ Come with song requests, stories and even a "dream to amplify". The theme of this hangout is #amplifyyourdreams  cause that's what you guys did for me. You turnt it up to 11! *SRSLY, MESSAGE ME* Send me a private message or chat or comment to me here if you'd like to arrange a special invite or if you're new and want to join the family and need some tips for getting in. I think I'm going to make invite circles for each half hour, so let me know when you want to join. Everyone's invited. It's really the greatest possible gift, just to let me sing for you and get to know you again and again and again.  *SPREAD THE LOVE* Share this invite too. Let's grow the family. Any friend of yours is a friend of mine and deserves some showcased virtual face-to-face time. *XO, Daria* PS. *CONNECTED BY* This concert celebration is being supported by our new friends at CO-OP Connected Credit Unions.

Second, due to the 10 person limit of hangouts, all individuals who join the hangout will be expected to contribute to the discussion by presenting research or research related issues.

EyeWire398,323*Join EyeWire's +Amy Robinson and +William Silversmith  for a Special +Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)  Neuroscience Hangout in honor of +YouTube Geek Week: Brainiac Day*.   Neuroscientists at MIT's *Nobel Prize winning Tonegawa Lab* have implanted false memories in a brain. Their research is currently on the cover of Science. Study author Steve Ramirez will explain their research and answer your questions live on Tuesday, August 6th at 2 pm ET. Steve comments:  “Now that we can reactivate and change the contents of memories in the brain, we can begin asking questions that were once the realm of philosophy,” Ramirez says. “Are there multiple conditions that lead to the formation of false memories? Can false memories for both pleasurable and aversive events be artificially created? What about false memories for more than just contexts — false memories for objects, food or other mice? These are the once seemingly sci-fi questions that can now be experimentally tackled in the lab.” Check out our second Geek Week Hangout on Thursday, Aug 8 at 2 PM: http://goo.gl/EqHLtX Faking It: Neuroscience of Memory at MIT2013-08-06 20:00:0050

This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected.

Lotus Carroll1,778,004I'm here in the big city, baby! There is something about this place that just makes me restless… it's like that living pulse that seems to throb through the streets just gets inside of you and doesn't stop. I *love* it!  So, while I'm not sleeping much and sucking up everything I can, I figured I couldn't let my visit go by without a photowalk, and some of my local (super awesome) friends agreed. I know this is last minute notice, but sometimes that's just how it goes. So grab your cameras/phones and join me along with @108906879763321014176, @114056084994793924628, & @108527329601014444443 as we enjoy one another's company while doing what we love and do best. :) We'll meet at the High Line entrance on 16th at 5:15 and start walking at about 5:30. Rain gear optional. See you all there! :DNYC Photowalk with Lotus & Friends2012-07-31 17:15:0026

Vivienne Gucwa (travelinglens)1,800,961This is the official page for this awesome event. Led by myself (Alan Shapiro and Sharon Strandskov were there in spirit :) ) The meeting up point is Columbus Circle at 1:00 pm.  We have a nice path planned that will include several really beautiful locations throughout Central Park including (but subject to change): The Mall (and Literary Walk), Bethesda Fountain, Bow Bridge, Shakespeare's Garden, Strawberry Fields and Belvedere Castle!

"All goes to show that the soul in man is not an organ, but animates and exercises all the organs; is not a function, like the power of memory, of calculation, of comparison, but uses these as hands and feet; is not a faculty, but a light; is not the intellect or the will, but the master of the intellect or the will; is the background of our being, in which they lie—an immensity not possessed and cannot be possessed. From within or from behind, a light shines through us upon things and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Never underestimate the power of prayer...

"I could use all the prayers I can get right now. ;) " - Amy

This is what my sister texted to me last week upon getting some disappointing news from her neurologist.

My sister Amy has been dealing with brain cancer for many years. She was given another 3 month break after undergoing a year and a half of chemo. She had her brain scan last week to evaluate the tumor and in Amy's words it's "not good". The tumor has grown considerably in those 3 months, faster than ever before. She will be seeing the specialist in NYC asap for further evaluation. Any and all prayers and healing thoughts are welcomed ;)  It really does mean a lot to Amy! Thank you xo

Put this +Ron Garan Hangout on your calendar!

Ron Garan, astronaut, while floating in space, recalls looking back at our blue dot and marvelling at the beauty of our Earth. With our shrinking borders and increased technologies, why can't we collaborate globally?

While on his stint on the International Space Station this former fighter pilot saw how fifteen nationalities worked together to put a few humans into a sustained environment in space.

This is his Orbital Perspective.

His newly released book explores how the notion of Orbital Perspective can work for us on Earth. Ron is joined by:

Fellow astronaut and co-sponsor of the Ansari X-Prize for the first privately funded spacecraft, Anousheh Ansari.

Author Frank White, whose Overview Effect (now in its third ediction) chronicled the life-changing experiences of our early astronauts in viewing the Earth from space, and whose Overview Institute is working to use that experience to better life on Earth.

Mike Simmons, Founder and President of Astronomers Without Borders, which works to connect people and create collaboration based on our common heritage of the night sky.

Join our discussion about how important it is use the Orbital Perspective here at home.

Send questions ahead of time to info@astronomerswithoutborders.org or on the Google+ event page during the program.

“Even a stone, and more easily a flower or a bird, could show you the way back to God, to the Source, to yourself. When you look at it or hold it & let it be without imposing a word of mental label on it, a sense of awe, of wonder, arises within you. Its essence silently communicates itself to you and reflects your own essence back to you.” ~Eckhart Tolle

“This body is not me; I am not caught in this body, I am life without boundaries, I have never been born and I have never died. Over there the wide ocean and the sky with many galaxies All manifests from the basis of consciousness. Since beginningless time I have always been free. Birth and death are only a door through which we go in and out. Birth and death are only a game of hide-and-seek. So smile to me and take my hand and wave good-bye. Tomorrow we shall meet again or even before. We shall always be meeting again at the true source, Always meeting again on the myriad paths of life.” 
― Thích Nhất Hạnh, No Death, No Fear

Amazing! Gotta love symmetry :)

This flawless and extremely beautiful snowflake was artifically grown and photographed by Kenneth G. Libbrecht, professor of physics and excellent snowflake photographer. He grows this crystal in summer in Southern California, when it was 35 C (95 F) outside.

View this snowflake in high resolutions on flickr - it worth this!

Also i recommend Kenneth's snowflake site (http://www.its.caltech.edu/~atomic/snowcrystals/) - this resource have lots of interesting and useful information about snowflake physics and photography, and, of course, excellent photos.

Live to See Another Sunset...

This is my mini Public Service Announcement on
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning.
My family almost became a statistic last Fall...

Have you checked the expiration date on your carbon monoxide detector? 
Do you have a carbon monoxide detector? 

We had 3, but not one of them went off recently when part of our furnace "cracked" and sent carbon monoxide through our air vents. Unfortunately the one in the best location to detect the leak had apparently expired and was not functioning even though it appeared to be working. Appearances can be deceiving. (Why don't these things give some signal that they are no longer working?) 

I'm feeling very thankful that it was our downstairs unit and not one that heats the bedrooms. We escaped with only headaches and nausea. We were alerted to a problem with the heaterbe... more »

Live to See Another Sunset...

Do you have a carbon monoxide detector? 

We had 3, but not one of them went off recently when part of our furnace "cracked" and sent carbon monoxide through our air vents. Unfortunately the one in the best location to detect the leak had apparently expired and was not functioning even though it appeared to be working. Appearances can be deceiving. (Why don't these things give some signal that they are no longer working?) 

I'm feeling very thankful that it was our downstairs unit and not one that heats the bedrooms. We escaped with only headaches and nausea. We were alerted to a problem with the heater because it started to emit a strange smell. But, as most of you know, carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless. We were lucky!

So... go check those expiration dates. Or buy a carbon monoxide detector if you don't have one. And live to see another sunset 

"The most common symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning may resemble other types of poisonings and infections, including symptoms such as headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, and a feeling of weakness. Affected families often believe they are victims of food poisoning. Infants may be irritable and feed poorly. Neurological signs include confusion, disorientation, visual disturbance, syncope and seizures." Read more here:

10 Principles for Good Design

"Dieter Rams introduced the idea of sustainable development and of obsolescence being a crime in design in the 1970s. Accordingly he asked himself the question: is my design good design? The answer formed is now the celebrated ten principles.

Good Design:

1. Is innovative - The possibilities for progression are not, by any means, exhausted. Technological development is always offering new opportunities for original designs. But imaginative design always develops in tandem with improving technology, and can never be an end in itself.

2. Makes a product useful - A product is bought to be used. It has to satisfy not only functional, but also psychological and aesthetic criteria. Good design emphasizes the usefulness of a product whilst disregarding anything that could detract from it.

10 Principles for Good Design

"Dieter Rams introduced the idea of sustainable development and of obsolescence being a crime in design in the 1970s. Accordingly he asked himself the question: is my design good design? The answer formed is now the celebrated ten principles.

Good Design:

1. Is innovative - The possibilities for progression are not, by any means, exhausted. Technological development is always offering new opportunities for original designs. But imaginative design always develops in tandem with improving technology, and can never be an end in itself.

2. Makes a product useful - A product is bought to be used. It has to satisfy not only functional, but also psychological and aesthetic criteria. Good design emphasizes the usefulness of a product whilst disregarding anything that could detract from it.

3. Is aesthetic - The aesthetic quality of a product is integral to its usefulness because products are used every day and have an effect on people and their well-being. Only well-executed objects can be beautiful.

4. Makes a product understandable - It clarifies the product’s structure. Better still, it can make the product clearly express its function by making use of the user's intuition. At best, it is self-explanatory.

5. Is unobtrusive - Products fulfilling a purpose are like tools. They are neither decorative objects nor works of art. Their design should therefore be both neutral and restrained, to leave room for the user's self-expression.

6. Is honest - It does not make a product appear more innovative, powerful or valuable than it really is. It does not attempt to manipulate the consumer with promises that cannot be kept.

7. Is long-lasting - It avoids being fashionable and therefore never appears antiquated. Unlike fashionable design, it lasts many years – even in today's throwaway society.

8. Is thorough down to the last detail - Nothing must be arbitrary or left to chance. Care and accuracy in the design process show respect towards the consumer.

9. Is environmentally friendly - Design makes an important contribution to the preservation of the environment. It conserves resources and minimizes physical and visual pollution throughout the lifecycle of the product.

10. Is as little design as possible - Less, but better – because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity."
