Markos Giannopoulos13,655Engagers VI: Christmas edition // It's a festive season so my monthly "round-up & thank you" circle is on the right mood!First some stats on people who engaged me (gathered via +Circloscope) and on my posts (tracked by +CircleCount):September: 620 plussers, 93 commentators and 86 sharers on 32 posts for a total of 745 +1s, 74 re-shares and 117 comments October: 395 plussers, 33 commentators and 39 sharers on 43 posts for a total of 1057 +1s, 80 re-shares and 165 comments November: 616 plussers, 114 commentators and 176 sharers on 32 posts for a total of 1109 +1s, 234 re-shares and 227 commentsA great month fuelled by two posts: 6+1 WordPress initial-setup plugins  (http://bit.ly/1bKXVgX 359 +1s, 59 comments, 183 re-shares) and Ode à Eiffel (http://bit.ly/1heptNZ 46 +1s, 4 comments, 5 re-shares). If I wanted to get "analytical" about it, it was two posts with some decent value (helpful list of plugins in one case on a every-day issue for a WordPress developer and an album of 18 original photos of night Paris on the other) :) So on to the circle: the formula for this month is - Plussers who are on over 3 engagers circles (so basically who have engaged with me in previous months as well this one)  - Sharers and commentators - A few kind highly-engaging people who have shared original circles including me. - People with over 300 in G+'s "relevance score" (as reported by +Circloscope), e.g. the people Google considers that I interact more and post similar content to mine (or of my interest)All in all, this came to a healthy group of 340 content creators and real engagers interested in technology and photography. Feel free to add them! As usual, stats and circle creation for this post were only made possible thanks to +CircleCount and +Circloscope. #engagers   #circleshare #circlesharing   #circleversary #milestone #googleplus #circleoftheday #circleplus #public #publiccircles 2013-12-16 17:49:57340441178CC G+

Markos Giannopoulos3,766197 interesting People // If you're into technology, the Web, photography and science, here's a circle to consider. Methodology: out of 3200 people that I follow, using +Circloscope I ordered them according to relevance score (calculated by Google depending on whose posts I engage the most) and filtered for a value over 30, then filtered for whether they are active (when was their last post) and finally filtered by whether they were in my "must read" circles. Voila! I hope you find it interesting :) #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  #circlesharing  2013-05-26 09:51:2119713412CC G+

Peter Vogel24,368ICT / Ed Tech CircleIt's a long weekend here in Canada (we celebrate Thanksgiving well ahead of our neighbours to the south). Here is a circle of people with a passion for technology in education and who have shared that enthusiasm here on Google+. And that makes for an ideal group to share their energy with others perhaps just starting to explore the rich environment of G+. Consider this a Thanksgiving gift from Canada. 2012-10-07 00:18:36420315CC G+
Chad Haney7,185Relevance on G+, Two Birds, One PostOK so here's my #AZlist or #AZfaves thingy. I decided not to annoy people with the notifications. They are probably in the shared circle below anyway. In case you don't know, the list is from typing + and a letter. You are supposed to select the first name that Google suggests. I didn't allow duplicates so in some cases, it wasn't the first person Google suggested "by relevance to me".A: Kawthar AL ABDALLA B: Buddhini Samarasinghe C: Kimberly Chapman D: Deeksha Tare E: Mike Elgan F: Feisal Kamil G: Gnotic Pasta H: Aida Hazlan I: irish d J: Jonathan Langdale K: Guy Kawasaki L: Lindsay Leonidas M: Mahesh Sreekandath N: Jerry Nguyen O: Mary Owens P: Peter LindelaufQ: Liz Quilty R: Rajini Rao S: Allison Sekuler T: Tom Lee U: Frances Uku V: Branimir Vasilic W: Christian WietholtX: Xavier Brinon Y: Annie Yim Z: mary ZemanThe shared circle is another test of relevancy. You also have probably seen these going around. You sort your circles by "Relevance" and make a circle out of the top 99. Again, I did a little filtering. I removed people that are hardly on G+ but are in my email contacts. There were a couple of bizarre ones near the bottom that also got the ax, sorry. If you aren't in here, don't feel bad. Blame Google. #circleshare   #sharedcircles2012-10-06 04:41:0110025017CC G+

Peter Vogel17,847Tech Ed CircleI am sharing the circle below for those who are looking for educators and those who actively write about education with an emphasis on information and communications technologies (let's call it tech ed for short). Just prior to posting this I used the Uncircle+ Chrome extension to comb the circle for inactive G+ accounts, resulting in the removal of around 60 from an initial set of 470. However, it appears that Uncircle+ is not completely reliable. At least one account remains that is apparently non-existent and a few accounts remain that were inactive during the period I specified. I wanted Uncircle+ to identify accounts with no activity since January 1.2012-04-09 01:23:424056313CC G+

Mitchel Rodwell0+Duncan Hayes , +Hanii Leigh this is my biggest circle, #Intellectual. I'd advise you follow either this or #Political, depending on which appeals to you more. As you can see, I follow a lot of very serious people, which is the sort of stuff I post as well. There's way more than what I've shared with you on +Google+ . There's +Handmade , there's +Android , there's +Funny Pictures & Videos . It's not just about serious stuff, even though that's what I mostly use it for.Anyway, happy G+ing! Make circles, post things, fill out your profiles, and if you see something really cool, share it! I don't have a good #Music circle, or a good #Photography circle, so one day you guys might share circles with me that I'd like :)P.s. Some useful tips. Google+ has #hashtag support, so when you put a "#" before a term it makes it a clickable link to see other times someone's mentioned that hashtag. So clicking #Intellectual up there would take you to a bunch of intellectual posts. And you tag people or pages with a "+" before their name.2012-01-23 13:52:20463500CC G+

This is a troubling subject in the US. Why? Cultural differences. We tend to think only of US. But other peoples treat social interaction differently. It is obvious if you look at the prevalence of universal health care in G20 nations.

Because businesses collect data so they can make money on it, we have a potential problem. Nothing inherently wrong with that, but they often misuse it and when we are dealing with sensitive health data, it's troubling. Can it be done safely? Sure. But just look at the backdoors in your OS. You can't trust government and you can't trust corporations.

Because you don't demand trustworthiness. Sorry, but US citizens don't. The Chinese will execute someone who violates public trust. Think about that.

In Japan, a project like this isn't  either individually unthinkable or as socially troubling. They have a system of... more »

My grizzly photos are rated FSD (from a safe distance) so I didn't post any here. But that doesn't mean we didn't see any. In fact, every weekend the morning news covered what it does at home, people getting drunk and killing themselves doing something stupid, plus bear attacks. Alaska FTW.

Ten kinds of matter

A cool discovery: substances can be divided into 10 kinds.

The basic idea is pretty simple.  Some substances have time-reversal symmetry: they would look the same, even on the atomic level, if you made a movie of them and ran it backwards.  Some don't - these are more rare, like certain superconductors made of yttrium barium copper oxide!   The substances that do have time reversal symmetry have a symmetry operator T that can square to 1 or to -1: please take my word for this, it's a quantum thing.  So, we get 3 choices, which are listed in the chart under T as 1, -1, or 0 (no time reversal symmetry).

Similarly, some substances have charge conjugation symmetry, meaning a symmetry where we switch particles and holes: places where a particle is missing.  The 'particles' here can be rather abstract things, likeph... more »

"We've noticed, in a trend among young Americans, that they read less history and less literature and less material about foreign lands, and they're essentially ahistorical. They live in the bubble of the present. They don't know the Korean War from the war in Vietnam. They don't know who was an ally of America in World War II. Think how different America would be if every American knew that this is the fifth time Western armies have gone to Afghanistan to put its house in order, and if they had some idea of exactly what had happened on those four previous occasions." :)

At the recent ESI for early career researchers (http://goo.gl/YNeeG0) I asked delegates to create a 3 min screencast of the research paper they each presented (mostly non technical - just to a wide audience to summarise and promote their research).  In due course I will pull together the full list of them, but here are the first 2 I've had in (at least where the delegates are comfortable with having them shared publicly on +YouTube).   They happen to both be on the topic of Emergency Medical Services, although there was a very wide range of modelling methods and healthcare applications presented at the ESI.

Earthquake Park used to be Turnagain Heights, a cliffside subdivision in Anchorage, Alaska. It sits on a layer of gray glacial silt/clay originally about 30 m thick. In an earthquake in the early 60s, the clay liquified and squirted out toward the river (cliff side). The top layer of houses, and regular soil dropped - you can see the horizontal through the trees here - and wrinkled. There is a photo of the descriptive plaque with a diagram.

Frank Schaeffer, son of religious right founder, Francis Schaeffer writes in support of his recent book in the Huff Po.
I don't think he gives people enough credit. For example the Fort Lauderdale mega-church Coral Ridge Ministries membership went from approximately 14,000 to 5,000 when minister David Kennedy began ranting about communists and Obama. Sadly, this is a Presbyterian church, although a splinter and hugely influential due to the media arm that produced religious hate for the Bible Belt talk radio market. Nearly 14 million dollars the year after Kennedy died.
This includes material support for Wall Builders' David Barton and other extremists.
Perhaps the biggest problem is the poisoning of the Southern Baptist Convention which is mentioned in the article. Not named are the Biblical Reconstructionists or the Chalcedon Foundation.

More evening news. Schools with poor reading scores will get an extra hour of intensive reading instruction in Palm Beach District Schools.
Hint: they already get "intensive reading" instruction.
Maybe the kids just need to read more and paying staff to keep their heads in a book isn't likely to do much. What it will do is starve sports programs which will have to move another hour later in the day.
This will allow mosquito borne disease to spread more effectively.
