Ole Olson20,256Top Circlers on the GooglesphereI've been sharing one and only one circle per day lately, picking the most interesting ones I've found. My goal is to share a diverse selection of circles, some based on topics like the environment, or interests like scifi, or well designed share circles. Probably about time I share one of my OWN circles for a change!Below is my recently updated Top Circles circle. These folks have a good track record of forging excellent share circles. Add them immediately.  #HashtagZoo  (concept courtesy of +Peter Edenist) #Circles   #Sharedcircles   #PublicCircles   #topcircles   #circlequeen   #circlemaster   #SharingIsCaring  2013-08-15 08:12:489515921CC G+
Ole Olson14,742Leaders of Google+ in #progressive   #politics  Add this circle for a well vetted collection of thought leaders that post a high degree of quality political content. The focalizers here are also excellent engagers.

Ole Olson13,134My Top Circler CircleSpecial thanks to these people on G+ who have shared me in one of their circles. I don't say it very often, but I really do appreciate it.  As I went over the list on +CircleCount last night, I realized some of these folks had vanished from my own circles, which happens on G+ occasionally, but that has been rectified. These are all fine folks with an eclectic mix of quality posts. Add this circle for some outstanding engagers.   And for others, sculpting quality circles and SHARING them is a very important part to G+. Don't share a circle every day, but do it once in a while to help others find who is important to you on here. Dirk TalamascaAndrey MashnichJack C CrawfordCircleCountEuro MaestroSusanne RamharterMark SDaniel HarringtonPaul MeulmanRandy HilarskiJUSTIN MATTHEW (shouting!)Gideon RosenblattTrever McGheeArmando LiossMike ClancyJohn HardyRob SalzmanJason Hurtado DanielsAlister MacintyreTina ValeJohn KelldenBob MulhollandDaniel SandsteinJari HuomoGabriel FitzpatrickGiovanni TotaroRae OuztsDaniele VegaMelissa WalkerKimberly CrawleyShaun WheldenRichard Greenjohn sawyerWes ForsterMarko Shiva PavlovicWataru TengaDavid BeeAtheismJohn DoeMelisa BeliwiczErik BarrettAmy McLeodAaron StanleyJeffrey HarringtonJason MDaniel VoisinBill SewardAndrew HartwellJoys Maclaurinmatt vovakiss #CircleShare   #SharedCircles   #SharedPublicCircles   #CircleOfTheDay   #Engagers  2013-04-23 13:27:015013615CC 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+

Hek Waves775In August, it was about one year I started my „Hek Waves“ stream on G+. In the meantime, I had the opportunity to “circle up” with a considerable group of people sharing interesting, amazing, sometimes critical and – if it’s needed – also a bit odd and jolting content. But – and that’s the point – it has always been a valuable, friendly, enlightening and engaging contribution to my personal G+ stream. Therefore, I think, that the first G+ anniversary is a good opportunity to say thanks to some of the top influencers of my stream and the best way to say Thank You on G+ is sharing carefully selected circles to the public. So, let me start with a first ”Thank You Circle”:This circle contains a first selection of people sharing social, political or environmental content on G+. It’s a pretty colorfull circle, so it doen’t address a single social direction or opinion. But it always contains people with a valuable point of view. And that’s, what makes G+ so unique. #ThankYouCircle   #reshare   #sharingiscaring   +Shared Circles on G+ BTW: Special thanks to +Susanne Ramharter  and +Andrew Hartwell  for the foundations to this circle.2012-09-02 12:33:1513724521CC G+

Amy McLeod1,986Ok, I have recently expanded my articulate and engaged circle with circles other people have given out of people that are interested in or actively participating in the Occupy movement. I'm not guaranteeing everyone I'm sharing here, as 900 odd people is a bit much to go through. These are people who would normaly be all over the political spectrum, but all interested in the the problems with out of control finance and it's corruption of goverment, they will certainly hold many views totally contrary to yours on many issues, but on this issue they are the 99%. I can't even guarantee that everyone in this circle is what I've stated above, I just took on trust the circles that have been shared to me and added them to people I had circled as articulate and engaged before Occupy took off, some of them may even be incomprehensible and disinterested, feel free to sort through them yourself if you have time, but I'd urge you not to exclude anyone just because their views are the polar opposite of yours on other issues. 99% is more important than any other divide and on this one thing both left and right should be united.First 500 are here.Amy McLeod shared a circle with you.2011-10-19 15:12:51500301CC G+

Apparently, "[s]ome SWAT teams in [Massachusetts] operate as law enforcement councils, or LECs, which are funded by several police departments and overseen by an executive board largely made up of local police chiefs."  Because of this, they claim to be private companies immune from public oversight via open records laws.

Bull.  If a private company is operating as an arm of the state and is funded by the state, it's PART OF THE STATE.  And it should thus be subject to the same restrictions and limits people have managed to impose on state power:

Fun fact: the Netherlands were possibly legally at war with a few British islands for over three hundred years.  They signed a peace treaty in 1986, just to be safe.

NASA closer than ever to finding life beyond Earth

NBC's upcoming Hellblazer adaptation is turning John Constantine straight.  I guess NBC stands for "No Bisexuals Channel."  Not surprising that David S Goyer is involved, since he's the guy that turned Leonardo Da Vinci, who was likely gay or perhaps even asexual, into a roguish ladies man.

On a lesser note, they are getting rid of his cigarettes also?  COME ON.  He's known as a smoker, it is one of his defining character traits.  It's right there in his Wikipedia entry: "He is known for his endless cynicism, deadpan snarking, ruthless cunning, and constant chain smoking."

Awesome Wikipedia article listing popular misconceptions.  Read it, you'll learn something!  Here's a particularly gross one: "George Washington did not have wooden teeth. His dentures were made of gold, hippopotamus ivory, lead, animal teeth (including horse and donkey teeth), and probably human teeth from slaves"

"It’s bad for the environment. That’s definitely true.  And some of the kids that have diesel trucks can look like tools. And you can cause a wreck, but everything else about it is pretty good.”

Yeah, aside from the pollution, the fact that you look stupid, and the danger to other drivers, this is just peachy.

In case you needed more proof that Nate Silver is overrated: "If we run the new numbers through the SPI match predictor, we come up with a 65 percent chance of Brazil prevailing against Germany."

"But it turns out Facebook’s users don’t see themselves as
compliant, passive consumers of Facebook’s emotional servicing, but instead had bought into the rhetoric that Facebook was a tool for communicating with their friends and family and structuring their social lives. When Facebook manipulates what users see — as they have done increasingly since the advent of its Newsfeed —  the tool becomes more and more useless for communication and becomes more of a curated entertainment product, engineered to sap your attention and suck out formatted reactions that Facebook can use to better sell audiences to advertisers. It may be that people like this product, the same way people like the local news or Transformers movies. Consumers expect those products to manipulate them emotionally. But that wasn’t part of the tacit contract in agreeing to use Facebook. If Facebook basically aspires tobe as emotio... more »

"Doctors in Southern California have implanted counterfeit screws and rods, ginned up in a small machine shop, into the backs of thousands of injured workers, according to lawsuits filed throughout the state.

Some doctors who used the bogus hardware took kickbacks including cash and private plane rides, while middlemen and hospitals profited by wildly inflating the cost of the screws, according to one suit filed in Sacramento... A separate whistleblower lawsuit alleges that many of the patients with fake implants may not have needed the surgery at all."

"In the case of healthcare, the underlying legal regime that made the Hobby Lobby case possible was a vast, interlocking constellation of power that included the regulatory state, insurance corporations, the professional licensing cartels (including the requirement that some medications be prescribed only by licensed physicians), the patent-based pharmaceutical cartel, and utterly corrupt bureaucratic corporate hospital chains....

Absent all these restrictions, open-source manufacturers could produce currently patented drugs at about 5% of the price, consumer co-ops could pool their purchasing power to buy medicine in bulk the way they now do with food, and anyone could just walk in and buy contraceptives (much cheaper) without a note from their doctor.

If all these forms of monopoly and privilege were abolished, no one would be dependent on corporate employers for opportunities... more »

Here's something disturbing that you don't hear much about: the Queen of England, or as we call her in the states, "the lady from the Sex Pistols cover," actually had two disabled cousins who were kept locked away and generally ignored by their family for decades.  One of them just died a few months ago.  They were so ignored by their royal relatives that for many years Burke's Peerage, the genealogical guide to people with fancy inherited titles, incorrectly listed them both as dead.

As a secular anti-state leftist, I'm in "pox on both houses" mode on this #hobbylobby ruling.

On the one hand we have people who irrationally believe in something history has proven to be harmful to humanity and who want to push that belief on others. But enough about statists!

On the flipside, we have people who think contraception is the devil's handiwork and who support the government playing favorites and deciding that some businesses just don't have to follow the same laws as others. Since other craft stores are still required to spend money on mandated coverage, Hobby Lobby is essentially being given a state-enforced competitive advantage because of their religion (and if you want to see how full of it the gov't is on supposed "religious exceptions," imagine how long a business would get away with claiming a religious objection to paying... more »

The SCOTUS ruling against free speech buffer zones means protestors at the 2016 conventions won't be limited to small pens, right?  And that people will be able to protest in front of the Supreme Court?  *crickets chirp*

"Predatory capitalism is based on the privatisation of profit and the externalisation of cost. It is an extension of the fencing of the commons, of enclosures, along with the criminalisation of prior common customs and rights. What we need is a system that fully accounts for all costs."

Yep, it used to be a chore to have to research an interest.......But now we have all the information we seek at our fingertips.
Let's just hope the corporations don't ruin the internet like they have everything else.

Apparently, "[s]ome SWAT teams in [Massachusetts] operate as law enforcement councils, or LECs, which are funded by several police departments and overseen by an executive board largely made up of local police chiefs."  Because of this, they claim to be private companies immune from public oversight via open records laws.

Bull.  If a private company is operating as an arm of the state and is funded by the state, it's PART OF THE STATE.  And it should thus be subject to the same restrictions and limits people have managed to impose on state power:

Michael Bloomberg’s large-soda ban is dead, dead, dead.

The New York State Court of Appeals ruled that the NYC Board of Health “exceeded the scope of its regulatory authority” with the ban, upholding previous rulings from lower courts.

You know what I think should be banned? Banning things. We need to ban banning things. Nowadays, it seems that no matter what the situation, the response is “OMG we have to ban something! What can we ban?” Stop banning things.

When pressed for further comment, however, every member of humanity agreed that the current system, though deeply flawed, remains far better than one in which they actually have to make decisions for themselves.

Of all the stuff you could protest about Google, people at #io14   protest a guy who works at Google evicting people (sucks, but not Google's fault) and "killer robots" (they've bought a few robotics companies recently, but killer robots are not actually a current or announced Google product, as far as I know)? What about collaboration with NSA? Or wage fixing?  This shit just makes protestors look bad.
