Ole Olson56,052It has come to light that Google has started funding and supporting some of the most vile right wing extremist collectives and corporate front groups in America. Join us by changing your avatar and boycotting every single Google service for one day in protest.  *On Wednesday, December 11th make a serious attempt to not use anything Google.* No Google Searches. No Google+. No gmail. No Youtube. No Google Calendar. No Blogger. No Google Maps. No Google Photos. No Google translate. No Google reverse image search. No Google Play. No Google Drive. No Google Books. No Google Shopping. Nothing.  (Android is immune since it is Open Source).  If nothing else, just think of this as a challenge to see if you are able to spend a day on the internet without using a single Google product or service or just take the day off and enjoy the real world for a change.  _Google, many of us are your most loyal users, and we love the technical direction everything is heading by rolling all services into Google+_ but it must be understood in no uncertain terms that we vehemently disagree with your decision to start to fund proto-fascist, right wing extremist, anti-environmental, anti-worker, and anti-science shock fronts like: •ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) •American Conservative Union •Americans for Tax Reform •CATO Institute •Federalist Society •George Mason University Law School Law and Economics Center •Heritage Action •Mercatus Center •National Taxpayers Union •R Street Institute •Texas Public Policy Foundation ________________________________________________ *More information:* Don’t Be Evil?

Jason T. Wiser22,128*How do I monetize my social media activity?*  See full notes and podcast here! http://jtw.bz/CDsocial I hear this question every day. "I have a social media following but I'm not really sure how to convert my contacts into clients? What am I doing wrong?" Too often small business owners either get frustrated because everyone tells them they _have to_ be on social media. So they get started, get some followers, and get stuck either *finding potential clients* , stuck *spending too much time* on social media, or stuck trying to *get their connections to convert.* This week I'm talking with one of social media's biggest names +Christine DeGraff  who is literally *everywhere*. She has massive followings, huge communities, and great reach. Christine will share with us: How did she get started? How does she monetize her communities?  Where does she need to improve?

Greenland Ice Mass Loss: Jan. 2004 - June 2014 | NASA
GRACE consists of twin co-orbiting satellites that fly in a near polar orbit separated by a distance of 220 km. GRACE precisely measures the distance between the two spacecraft in order to make detailed measurements of the Earth's gravitational field. Since its launch in 2002, GRACE has provided a continuous record of changes in the mass of the Earth's ice sheets.

This animation shows the change in the Greenland Ice Sheet between January 2004 and June 2014. The 1-arc-deg NASA GSFC mascon solution data was resampled to a 998 x 1800 data array using Kriging interpolation. A color scale was applied in the range of +250 to -250 centimeters of equivalent water height, where blue values indicate an increase in the ice sheet mass while red shades indicate a decrease. In addition, the running sum total of the accumulated mass... more »

This animation shows the change in the Greenland Ice Sheet between January 2004 and June 2014. The 1-arc-deg NASA GSFC mascon solution data was resampled to a 998 x 1800 data array using Kriging interpolation. A color scale was applied in the range of +250 to -250 centimeters of equivalent water height, where blue values indicate an increase in the ice sheet mass while red shades indicate a decrease. In addition, the running sum total of the accumulated mass change over the Greenland Ice Sheet is shown on a graph overlay in gigatons.

4 State Parties Violate Neutrality, Sign Fund-Raising Pacts With Clinton Campaign
The ruling bodies of the New Hampshire, Mississippi, Virginia, and Wisconsin Democratic Parties have in essence endorsed Hillary with these corrupt arrangements. I'm a proud Democrat, but this reeks of insider scheming and the upper echelon of those state parties need to feel the heat for this. Any organizing unit (from state parties to local units) should not show any favoritism towards any candidate until the actual a candidate gets the actual endorsement of that state or local party (during the caucus or primary). This is collusion.

If you loved Paul Wellstone, you'll love @BernieSanders!
As the DNC begins it's convention in Minneapolis, we are reminded of the legacy of Paul Wellstone, who was the most vigilant voice for those that rarely have a voice in government. He supported the poor, women, LGBT folks, the environment, the disabled, minorities, veterans, religious/secular minorities, education, consumers, and seniors like nobody else. +Bernie Sanders does the same thing with the same passion and fire as Wellstone.

In the words of +Robert Reich: "Years ago when Paul Wellstone was running for the Senate from Minnesota he took positions I thought absolutely correct, but were to the left of most of his constituents. He assured me voters are more interested in the integrity and authenticity of candidates than the specifics of any policies they espouse. "They know that I believe what I say, and they trust I have their interests at heart," he told me. "That's why I'll win." Paul did win, and he became one of America's greatest senators. I often think about him these days, as Bernie gains momentum.  https://www.facebook.com/RBReich/posts/1040293552649907

Visual of Global Military Expenditures: US Comprises Half of Global Military Spending

•Veterans programs like the V.A.
•foreign affairs budget

The info you need to defeat the S-word attack on Bernie Sanders http://plus.google.com/+OleOlson/posts/CnZocANdcHn

We know the "soicalsm" attacks from the ignorant right wing and their propaganda masters that tell them what to think is coming. They've been playing that card since 2008 against Obama, and we've doubled the stock market, have record corporate profits, and 99% of the new income has gone to the richest 1%. Conservatives (neofascists) have overplayed that card. 

Bernie's platform does represent the boldest reforms since FDR or TR though, and is based on the 3E’s Economy, Equality, Environment. Teddy Roosevelt had the Square Deal. FDR had the New Deal. Bernie Sanders has the Real Deal:

How To Talk To Your Climate Denier Uncle This Thanksgiving
Here are some key points to help everyone stick to the facts, and ensure you don’t spend the holidays caught in a morass of climate denial just because it’s snowing.

These might be better tips than my preferred method of taunting science deniers by calling them brainwashed Fox zombies.

Reposting, because this is always applicable to someone somewhere.

Major points:

• Just because it’s cold right now in the place where you live does not disprove basic climate science
• There is no “pause” in global warming
• “Global warming,” “climate change,” call it whatever you want
• There is no conspiracy, and there is broad consensus that climate change is happening
• Yes, we are causing it___How To Talk To Your Climate Denier Uncle This Thanksgiving

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster comes out as an atheist
Foster, raised in New Mexico and San Diego, played for the University of Tennessee Volunteers before entering the NFL in 2009. His father was Muslim, and Foster grew up in that tradition, praying five times a day and asking God for help when he was in a difficult situation. He eventually garnered the courage to tell his father that he didn’t believe in God, and instead of a lecture, Foster’s father told him to “go find your truth.”

A reminder that non-religious folks are still suffering immense discrimination too.

This is big news. Arian Foster is risking a lot to come out and speak the truth in an occupation dominated by Christian politics. I personally want to thank him for this and I hope you all will read about this.___Houston Texans running back Arian Foster comes out as an atheist

40 year anniversary: Born to Run and the Decline of the American Dream
Bruce Springsteen’s breakout album embodied the lost ‘70s—the tense, political, working-class rejection of an increasingly unequal society.

Heads up religious conservatives: the US Constitution is the law of the land (and it doesn't start and stop with the 2nd Amendment). America is a secular nation. Don't like it? Move to Iran.

John Oliver tackles how unjust discrimination against #LGBT  people is
In his latest video, John takes on the continued legal discrimination against people born gay. Despite the victory of national marriage equality, LGBT folks can still get fired just for being born gay in most states in America. Oliver also exposes the sham of "religious freedom" for the blatant homophobia that it is.

Bigotry wrapped in prayer is still bigotry (and most that try to use that angle usually violate a great number of things from their respective holy books, so even on religious grounds they have no right to complain).

Electromagnetic Waves based on Maxwell’s Equations

#Science   #Physics  

Electromagnetic Waves – the Movie
This shows an electromagnetic wave propagating to the right.

Maxwell’s Equations require that the electric field (blue) must always be perpendicular to the magnetic field (red). And, both these fields must be perpendicular to the direction the wave is moving.

The changing electric field creates the changing magnetic field. The magnetic field, in turn, creates the changing electric field. This back and forth exchange happens continuously as the wave propagates.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has noticed the eerily similar historical parallels between the right wing plan to round up undocumented migrants, and the reich wing actions to put similar groups into camps 70 years ago.

These 7 Images of Global Borders Reveal the Unique Brutality of the US-Mexico Wall
Since “securing the border” has become the hottest issue in the GOP presidential nomination process, comparing the US/Mexico border to other borders around the world may provide insight as to why that’s a dumb statement. On almost every continent, international borders are much more open, and military/police presence is basically nonexistent.

What's really behind the xenophobia and fear mongering about the Mexican border with the US is racism. Overt, out in the open racism. Otherwise, why isn't there a border wall with Canada?

Most undocumented migrants that come here don't jump any wall, and even if they did it just takes an 11 foot ladder to get over a 10' wall. If we want to cut down the number of folks coming here, give those already here a path to citizenship andincre... more »

Corporations should be prohibited from corrupting politics with their big money
In order for our nation to have more prosperity and happiness in the future, politics has to be open to the best and brightest people who have the best ideas. Corrupting our democracy by turning the process into slick advertising campaigns only leads to the biggest ass-kissers who will only do the bidding of their corporate/oligarch financiers.

We can and MUST retake our government from the rich and powerful special interests. This means YOU. Sign up, bring in volunteers, organize events, and spread the word!

The 'Hairy Rhino' Is Now Extinct in Malaysia
Most people don't know that Planet Earth is going through a mass extinction event right now, and it is biogenic in origin. Our species is directly causing this mass death of species and the biosphere by overrunning natural habitats, over-"harvesting", pollution, and climate change.

Unless we find ways to lessen our footprint, we could potentially be dooming life on this planet (at least the rich, diverse biosphere that we know) to permanent death. As a species, we must become better caretakers of our world, including leaving vast swaths of nature to itself. The survival of our own species also depends on it.

Animated Map of Seasonally Adjusted Unemployment Rates (1976-2015)
Progressive Democrats do far better at creating jobs than conservative Republicans. Jimmy Carter had the best job creation record in recent history:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jobs_created_during_U.S._presidential_terms#Job_creation_by_term

These are the U3 figures (official unemployment rate), which do not include many people. The national U# rate is 5.3% while the U6 figure (includes everyone) is still 10.4%:
