Astronomers Without Borders234,958Astronauts 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 18:00:0088

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 20:00:0051

I finally added my last person. :)I will seek more of these in the future, don't worry, and this means I will have to share multiple circles from now on, but for now...these are the 500 most inspirational people on Google Plus for me.A great big Thank You to everybody in this circle for enriching my Google Plus experience and inspire and motivate me in becoming a better photographer.artist. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circles  2014-01-09 22:05:0550031930

Dustin W. Stout26,662The Most Creative and Inspiring People on Google+As the first of my #circlesplosion  shares, this crowd-curated circle is comprised of those people who have been personally endorsed as some of the most creative and inspiring people on Google+.These folks are artists, designers, photographers, crafters, painters, musicians, videographers, marketers, and all around creators of things here on Google+.If you're a creator of things and want to connect with more people who create and inspire, add this circle.  Keep watch of the people in this stream and connect with the people you resonate with. About #circlesplosionAs I discussed in my introduction to #circlesplosion  (here - dustn.tv/circlesplosion/) managing and curating your circles will ultimately give you the greatest experience here on Google+. In an effort to connect people with passion, with other people with those same passions, I have resolved to share these crowd-curated circles with the world. I hope this group gives you as much value as it has me! Have a great monday everyone!  #creativity   #inspiration   #sharedcircles  2013-11-11 19:47:102367341119

Jacob Dix22,896Mobile PhotographersMobile Photography -- or as I call it  #Mobilography  -- is an artform that, happy to report, has flourished here on Google+. This circle of mobile photographers is not food and cats. It is art, it is creativity, it is beauty and content. Some of the individuals in this circle are film and DSLR photographers as well. The phone camera though is a regular and equally legitimate camera to use in their photography and documentation of their worlds.If you have been notified of this post, you are in the circle.Crowd SourcingI am taking suggestions for people to add to this circle for the future. If you are a mobile photographer, or know a mobile photographer, that isn't in this circle, please mention them here and include a link to a gallery of work.You are not required to share this circle to get into it. I can't stand that gimmick. Share it if you want people to know about our work. #MobilePhotography   #Mobilography   #Mobilographers   #MobilePhotographers   #CircleShare   #SharedCircle  2013-10-25 11:22:57237881459

Justin Hill22,577338 Photographers :- Due to a post I saw float past in my stream today I am suddenly aware of the fact that I have not shared any of my circles for a very long time. So to rectify that here's my circle of photographers. If you are missing from this circle you are most probably in my other photography circle that is HDR based...if you are also missing from that one then I am sorry as I simply cannot add everyone that crosses my path or stream. Enjoy...2013-10-11 14:09:1333813311

They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to August 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting JAugust 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday  #sharedcircles  #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle  #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle  #handpickedcircles Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these 2013-08-25 11:13:20395605

Jason Ramsey6,445These are mostly all active G+ users. This started as a 'active user' circle by +Christine DeGraff  so she should be given ALL the credit here. Her original circle had 328 in it, and was my inspiration for this circle. Of that number, around three hundred got to stay and she did all the leg work on those, and she used circlecount.com to check their activity. I shared it before I was done adding mine, so this is the revised version. Here is the link to her original circle she shared, be sure and add it as well  http://bit.ly/13cmVG6I haven't done shared circles in a while till I saw +Christine DeGraff  doing incredible by adding over 5,000 in a day! So, I added around 200 more, one at a time, of people who are trusted contacts from all of my networks. Some may not be very active on G+, but they should be circled because of their total value.If you are not in this circle, and would like to be, simply state so in a comment on the post and I'll add you. Most people in this circle will add you back, stop by and say 'hi' to them, tell them I sent you.Let's get this 'snowball' rolling down hill and see how big we can make it. Please +1 this post.Please share this post. Please comment.And don't forget to add and thank +Christine DeGraff #circles   #googleplus #circlesharing   #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #networking #help #google  2013-07-13 21:48:0349929927

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...

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 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."

“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

"Do you like curly fries? Have you Liked them on Facebook? Watch this talk to find out the surprising things Facebook (and others) can guess about you from your random Likes and Shares.

“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

In a 2000 O interview, Oprah brought up the fact that she'd seen Angelou throw someone out of her house for telling a racist joke. Angelou replied that it was her duty, as always, to speak up, for everyone.

"I'm convinced that the negative has power," she said. "It lives. And if you allow it to perch in your house, in your mind, in your life, it can take you over. So when the rude or cruel thing is said—the lambasting, the gay bashing, the hate—I say, 'Take it all out of my house!' Those negative words climb into the woodwork and into the furniture, and the next thing you know they'll be on my skin."

How Google+ is solving one of the biggest problems in modern photography
"We have become a society of documenters, holding our phones up at every available moment, shooting at anything that moves, or anything that holds still. But what do we do with all these pictures? Often, the answer is nothing. The things we do share are often just snapshots. One picture. Maybe two. But not experiences. Our lives get lost in the ever-scrolling streams of social media. We are a society of documenters that produces surprisingly little documentary.

Google correctly recognizes that the worst part of modern photography is figuring out what to do with all the pictures we take. And now it’s doing something for you with a new feature for Google+ Photos called Stories.

'There are products that think of photos as files, and there are products that think of photos as photos,' explains Google’s +Ben Eidelson, a product manager for Google+ Photos. 'But what we’re trying to do is think of photos as moments. This is a moment in your life that you want to do something with.'"

As +WIRED's +Mathew Honan explains, Google+ Stories are utterly magical. I've been looking forward to this feature for quite some time.

What Neuroscience Can Teach Us About Compassion

Mounting evidence of the impact of contemplative practices like meditation (which we now know can, quite literally, rewire the brain) are finally bringing modern science up to speed with ancient wisdom.

Mindfulness and compassion -- the practices of cultivating a focused awareness on the present moment, and extending a loving awareness to others -- are part of every religion and wisdom tradition, and we're at last beginning to understand the profound impact that they have on the brain, says psychiatrist and mindfulness expert Dr. Dan Siegel.

What Neuroscience Can Teach Us About Compassion

Mounting evidence of the impact of contemplative practices like meditation (which we now know can, quite literally, rewire the brain) are finally bringing modern science up to speed with ancient wisdom.

Mindfulness and compassion -- the practices of cultivating a focused awareness on the present moment, and extending a loving awareness to others -- are part of every religion and wisdom tradition, and we're at last beginning to understand the profound impact that they have on the brain, says psychiatrist and mindfulness expert Dr. Dan Siegel.

A pioneer in the field of interpersonal neurobiology and executive director of the Mindsight Institute, Siegel discussed the neuroscience of mindfulness and compassion during a keynote address to the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science's Mind Science in Action Benefit Weekend earlier this month.

Seigel highlighted findings in the field of interpersonal neurobiology and from his own "mindsight approach" to psychiatry -- both systems revolve around the principle of "integration," which suggests that the linking of different aspects of a system, such as the brain, is at the heart of well-being, resilience, mindfulness and compassion.

"Integration is seen as the essential mechanism of health as it promotes a flexible and adaptive way of being that is filled with vitality and creativity," Siegel writes on his website. "The ultimate outcome of integration is harmony."

Through this interdisciplinary form of inquiry into the brain and mind, Siegel says, we can "build a framework thats based on science but goes beyond what science says, and looks more deeply at what it means to be human."

Compassion is a central component of what it means to be human, but we don't necessarily know how it works in the brain or why we're wired to be compassionate towards others -- nd interpersonal neurobiology may be a particularly helpful framework for examining the importance of this quality in our lives and relationships.

6 Years ago today my mother passed away from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).

This is a rare and horrific neurodegenerative disease. It is relentless. 
It robs you of your ability to see, ability to swallow, ability to speak, ability to walk, ability to use your hands and so on... yet it does not rob you of your mind. You remain painfully aware of everything that is happening to you. 

I am posting this to raise awareness and in honor of Barbara Varallo who fought this disease valiantly and then donated her brain to The Cure PSP Research Program. She wanted desperately for there to be a cure found...

Love you Mom
