Richard Green88,785Engagers Showcase Circle, December 1, 2014If I sent you a notification, it means that you are included in my Engagers Showcase Circle. “Showcase” means that you are invited to leave a comment (on the original post) with a link to one of your own posts, which ideally should be one of your best recent posts.This circle consists of people who have engaged with one of the posts listed below, in the form of +1s, comments and reshares. I have not posted much in the last couple of months because I have been too busy, and so it has been a long time since the last reshare of the circle.Everyone mentioned below is also included in the circle.Millcreek Canyon Vista (reshared from +Tom Malloy)https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/HuXLKw4GBwjAvoiding the unavoidablehttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/TnW3pTWt6d7Hydrangea flowershttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/3LDn2js6pWpMicroscopic Victorian arthttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/ieybEmL7tUCApproximating e using the digits 1–9https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/W5E6HyihSuY“Vertebral 03 – Pendant Lampshade” by cordycepthttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/eSo9svRbLapCentred polygonal numbershttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/QowshFUnPZ2Reinventing the wheel: Reuleaux polygonshttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/gDxTM5Ko8hbSunrise at Maroon Lake (reshared from +Jason Hill)https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/hvWMqo1HwvVSchmidt arrangementshttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/eM3adto6nsj“Dream Creatures” by Elido Turcohttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/ckjru8sN6AG“The Awakening III—Rebirth” by Luc Railhachttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/KyNg9DD4YnXPoincaré and topologyhttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/bmnd2URRAsfLytham St Annes (reshared from +Paul Haworth)https://plus.google.com/1015848892828789210522014-12-01 22:15:07443146111188

Peter Vogel44,635My circle of educators who post about information technology from an education perspectiveSomeone asked me earlier today if they could have access to this circle of about 450 educators. For some reason a private sharing didn't work for him so I am sharing the circle publicly. Perhaps it will be of use to some others as well.The circle isn't perfect. There are sure to be some dormant accounts in it but that should be more than made up by the many devoted G-plussers you will find here.2014-11-14 04:49:174553311

Refurio Anachro4,745September engagers circle: This month's buzz has been boosted by curiosity about Hamiltonians - welcome you all and nice to meet you! I found to really like Hamiltonian mechanics, and i'll sure come back to what i meant by describing them as "intriguing like postmodern psychedelic sculpture".

Peter Vogel44,233Sharing a circle of terrific ICT educatorsHere in British Columbia we are about to head back to school. What better time to share this circle of people who share their expertise in Information and Communications Technology or Educational Technology if you prefer another label.I've been a Google+ user since day 1 and in fact I began using it, appropriately enough, while on a three-week stay at the birthplace of the World Wide Web, CERN, perhaps better known as the home of the Large Hadron Collider. I began building this circle of plussers while there. Now I must admit I haven't been good about culling dormant accounts of late so don't expect everyone in the circle to be a gem.Also, if you happen across this post and circle and wish to be included (on the basis outlined above) just send me a note.  2014-08-29 22:11:48451101

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 17:49:57340441178

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.

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 00:18:36420304
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 04:41:0110025017

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 01:23:424056313

From +Russ Abbott via +Dennis Rünger something interesting on Medium. Maybe well done. Well worth reading at any rate.

Noise lets you tell cause from effect

The basis of the new approach [to distinguishing cause from effect by observation alone] is to assume that the relationship between X and Y is not symmetrical. In particular, they say that in any set of measurements there will always be noise from various cause. The key assumption is that the pattern of noise in the cause will be different [from] the pattern of noise in the effect. That’s because any noise in X can have an influence on Y but not vice versa.

So the datasets should reflect this. The task for a statistician is to develop a statistical test that can tell the difference.)

Just such a test exists and known as the additional noise model. This assumes that each dataset is made up of the relevant data as well as various sources of noise. Statisticians have shown that the nonlinearity of this process can allow them to determine the direction of cause-and-effect.

Giuliani said Obama encouraged violence. Here's what Obama said:
“I also appeal to the law enforcement officials in Ferguson and the region to show care and restraint in managing peaceful protests that may occur. Understand, our police officers put their lives on the line for us every single day. They’ve got a tough job to do to maintain public safety and hold accountable those who break the law. As they do their jobs in the coming days, they need to work with the community, not against the community, to distinguish the handful of people who may use the grand jury’s decision as an excuse for violence — distinguish them from the vast majority who just want their voices heard around legitimate issues in terms of how communities and law enforcement interact.”

"Bond was set at $28,000 during his first appearance in court Friday morning where Broward Judge John Hurley cited Kiernan's juvenile record in his decision."
"The court is very concerned about the level of gratuitous violence toward that art center," Hurley said. "You have an extensive record as a juvenile and it's very concerning [because] you're only 18 now."

So. I'm looking for this character Bill Warner PhD and the search looks like it's been scrubbed with Ajax the cleanser, not the framework. I must say it made me a tad suspicious.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have discovered a new mathematical relationship—between material thickness, temperature and electrical resistance—that appears to hold in all superconductors. They describe their findings in Physical Review B.

The result could shed light on the nature of superconductivity and could also lead to better-engineered superconducting circuits for applications like quantum computing and ultra-low-power computing.

Doesn't anybody pay attention to structural movement in Science anymore? The Philosophers of Science moved denial into the pseudoscience category several years ago. Witness the fact they haven't published since the year before the San Diego AAAS meeting. They have been in vanity press for YEARS. Let me ask this, are you aware scientific validity depends on publication and the rank of said publisher?

Powerful commentary from John Warner about the dreadful business at ASU... which is garnering attention only because it is a change in policy of course. Many school have just this same system in place already, as John points out: 5/5 teaching loads with poorly paid instructors expected to teach 125 students how to write.

E-Cig users beware.

With E-Cigarettes, Why Worry About Nicotine?

... When you've got heavy metals, lead, tin, zinc, nickel and chromium at four times the level they appear in traditional cigarette smoke? 

Why not use a completely unregulated product manufactured in China under the same standards that put melamine in milk and pet food, paints children's toys with lead paint, and creates poison-leaching wall board? Why could go wrong? 

Half the e-cigarettes sampled malfunctioned and some released vapor tainted with silicon fibers. “We’ve found on the order of 25 or 26 different elements, including metals, in the e-cigarette aerosols,” says Prue Talbot, a professor of cell biology at the University of California, Riverside, and co-author of several of the studies. “Some of the metal particles are less than 100 nanometers in diameter, and those are a concern because they can penetrate deep into the lungs.”___E-Cig users beware.

A little +Stephen Downes to get you through the weekend:

Educational technology is meaningless if it is not also liberating technology. The purpose of education is not to serve certain social objectives or as a means to employment, but rather to place in the hands of the learner the best and most useful set of tools possible to enable him or her to choose and forge the best quality life for themselves, or as John Stuart Mill would say, to pursue their own good in their own way.___Comment, I must.

Fox and GOP sockpuppets teach us a lesson about motivated reasoning. There is no persuasive reason to indulge in it. More likely, we have to be on guard against it. Climate change denial is a good example for me.

Today, tantrums and foaming at the mouth tend to drive me into an emotional reaction of disgust at this point because the whole thing has been moved into the department of science history into the pseudoscience section. Emotional storms on the right continue and they fail to notice nobody cares.

Back in 2004 it was curiosity at why Milloy got his malaria mortality numbers wrong that led me to discover climate FUD. I was told there were mistakes in the proxy record invalidating the work of climate scientists. Common knowledge of how proxy records work convinced me of the flaw in the criticism.

Curiosity unravels the mystery of water on Mars
NASA’s Curiosity Rover has gathered evidence that Mars' Mount Sharp was built by sediments deposited in a large lake bed over tens of millions of years. This supports the theory that ancient Mars maintained a climate that could have produced long-lasting lakes at many locations on the Red Planet, lakes that possibly supported microbial life.

In world first, researchers convert sunlight to electricity with over 40 percent efficiency -- ScienceDaily

'Australia's solar researchers have converted over 40 percent of the sunlight hitting a solar system into electricity, the highest efficiency ever reported. A key part of the prototype's design is the use of a custom optical bandpass filter to capture sunlight that is normally wasted by commercial solar cells on towers and convert it to electricity at a higher efficiency than the solar cells themselves ever could.'

Twenty five years ago today a man opened fire at École Polytechnique, the engineering school of the University of Montreal, solely because "you're women, you're going to be engineers."

Fourteen women were killed that day, twelve of them engineering students, one a nursing student, and one a university employee. 

Here are their names: Anne St-Arneault, Geneviève Bergeron, Hélène Colgan, Nathalie Crotea, Barbara Daigneault, Anne-Marie Edward, Maud Haviernick, Barbara Klueznick, Maryse Laganière, Maryse Leclair, Anne-Marie Lemay, Sonia Pelletier, Michèle Richard, and Annie Turcotte.
