Chill Ideaz Jay Beek Rocksuperstar0Here's the latest update of my Engagers circle. The last version of this circle was close to full, so I started it again from scratch. This circle includes people who have recently engaged with one of my posts in the form of +1s, comments and public reshares.I might have missed some people because of limitations of the Google+ interface. Fortunately, the next release of +Circloscope on June 28 is likely to include new features that make circles like this one much easier to create.I've included 100 guest members in this circle, taken from my Favourites circle, which I haven't shared in a while.Like my previous circle share, this is a Showcase circle! What this means is that everyone is invited to leave a comment on (the original post of) this circle share containing a link to one of your own posts. Ideally, this should be something that you posted recently and that you are particularly pleased with. (Don't post spam though; I will delete it.)2013-11-24 00:22:24405014CC G+

Fraser Cain779,548Super Science Circle - May 2013 EditionNeed more science in your Google+? Well, here's all the science you can handle! Enjoy my latest, heavily curated edition of the Super Science Circle.Please share this circle... for Science!For the uninitiated, I maintain a circle of 450+ people who are active on Google+ and regularly post on Google+. In this circle you'll find scientists, journalists, astronauts, educators, and science enthusiasts. By importing this circle into your own circles, you'll immediately gain a vibrant and fascinating feed of amazing science stories.I recognize that it might be too much science, so I suggest you create a brand new temporary circle and evaluate the people in the circle. Only transfer the keepers to your permanent circles. Then, when I update the circle next month, rinse and repeat.Are you active on G+ and regularly post about science? +mention me and I'll check out your profile.Remember, please share this post2013-05-22 19:26:51456348290CC G+
Fraser Cain770,050Super Science Circle - April 2013 EditionIt's time for another sharing of my Super Science Circle. This is a collection of 400+ active people on Google+ who often post about science. If anyone tells you G+ is a ghost town (not that anyone does any more), get them to import this circle. PLEASE SHARE THIS CIRCLE... FOR SCIENCE!I have personally reviewed each and every person on this list, to make sure that they:1. Are active and engaged on Google+2. Regularly post science-related stories on Google+In this list you'll find scientists, journalists, researchers, professors, astronauts and general science enthusiasts. Not everyone in this list is going to be to your personal liking. So what you'll want to do is import the list into a temporary circle. Then move people over one by one into more permanent locations in your circles.I'm always looking for more people to add to the list, so if you know people who meet my criteria, feel free to nominate them.Again, please share the circle. Every little bit helps2013-04-26 21:02:03419226277CC G+

Fraser Cain759,117The Return of the Super Science CircleOkay, I'll admit, I made a mistake in retiring the Super Science Circle. I wasn't wrong; Communities are still the future and the best way to make friends here on Google+. But I realized that the Super Science Circle is simple and efficient way to get new people to see that Google+ isn't a ghost town.PLEASE SHARE THIS POST... FOR SCIENCE!When I was attending +ScienceOnline 2013, I must have helped dozens of people join Google+, and the first thing I had them do was import this circle. It's an invaluable tool for getting new people up to speed.So, I just did a complete refresh on the circle. I examined every single member and judged them according to my two-part criteria:1. Active in the last 30 days or so.2. Regularly post on scientific topics.If you know anyone who might make a good candidate for this circle, please let me know.As always, import this circle into a new, temporary circle, and then you can refresh it when I share a new version.DON'T FORGET TO SHARE THIS POST2013-03-19 22:39:3139967163160CC G+

Well, not only were more women added as a result of our discussions (Thanks, Google!) but we put together a list or YOUR recommendations for your favorite ladies of science. These women do science, teach science, talk about science, or just plain LOVE science, and they share it with all of us here on Google+. Still missing you or one of your favorites?

Fraser Cain694,882The Final Super Science CircleWell, this is it, this is going to be the last posting of the Super Science Circle. Why? Communities, that's why. In case you didn't know, I've been maintaining my Super Science Circle from the very beginning of Google+. As soon as the feature to share circles was enabled, I was happy to share those circles around into Google. I did this because it was very difficult for people with related interests (science) to be able to find each other. I wanted new G+ users to realize this place isn't a ghost town; there are vibrant groups of people actively discussing scientific topics.But it was a hack. Each month took me almost an entire day to curate down the list of people, remove the inactive, and incorporate newly active people who often posted about science. And it was always imperfect. Some people got a massive boost in followers and engagement, while other, equally deserving people were left out.It was inelegant, inefficient and arbitrary.But now you can do this all on your own. You can go into any Community that matches your interest and instantly discover thousands of people who share your enthusiasm for a topic - just joining a Community will bring a trickle of posts about topics that interest you back into your stream. Keep your participation in the Community, or circle the most interesting people and harvest them back into your own stream.In the coming months, I'll be suggesting Communities you should join, instead of people you should circle. Thanks to everyone for using the shared circles and helping science get such a firm foothold here on Google+. Thanks to all the past and present members of the Super Science Circle for sharing such wonderful stuff.Science!2013-01-17 02:59:31420544084CC G+

"Make no mistake: this is a really, really, really big deal. This is the first downing of a civilian jetliner in this conflict and, if it were the rebels who brought it down, all kinds of ugly things follow. For one thing, what seemed to be gelling into a frozen local conflict has now broken into a new phase, one that directly threatens European security. The plane, let's recall, was flying from Amsterdam."

"Let’s talk about an active role for white people in the fight against racism because racism burdens all of us and is destroying our communities. And, quite frankly, because white people have a role in undoing racism because white people created and, for the most part, currently maintain (whether they want to or not) the racist system that benefits white people to the detriment of people of color. My white friends who’ve spoken out harshly against the murder of Michael Brown end with a similar refrain: What can I do that will matter in the fight against racism?

White people who are sick and tired of racism should work hard to become white allies."

How To Be Polite

"People silently struggle from all kinds of terrible things. They suffer from depression, ambition, substance abuse, and pretension. They suffer from family tragedy, Ivy-League educations, and self-loathing. They suffer from failing marriages, physical pain, and publishing.
The good thing about politeness is that you can treat these people exactly the same. And then wait to see what happens. You don’t have to have an opinion. You don’t need to make a judgment."

Crashing the Mosquito Population to Thwart Malaria

A new genetic technique, which artificially inflates the mosquito sex ratio in favor of males, could lead to dramatic reductions in mosquito populations - a major win in the battle against malaria (a disease which kills around a million people a year and infects millions more. And let me tell you - it sucks!).

"But wait!" I hear you say! "ECOSYSTEM HEALTH?!?" 

Don't worry:

Yet in many cases, scientists acknowledge that the ecological scar left by a missing mosquito would heal quickly as the niche was filled by other organisms. Life would continue as before — or even better. When it comes to the major disease vectors, "it's difficult to see what the downside would be to removal, except for collateral damage", says insect ecologist Steven Juliano, of IllinoisSt... more »

A world without mosquitoes would be "more secure for us", says medical entomologist Carlos Brisola Marcondes from the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Brazil. "The elimination of Anopheles would be very significant for mankind."

What transpired in the streets appeared to be a kind of municipal version of shock and awe; the first wave of flash grenades and tear gas had played as a prelude to the appearance of an unusually large armored vehicle, carrying a military-style rifle mounted on a tripod. The message of all of this was something beyond the mere maintenance of law and order: it’s difficult to imagine how armored officers with what looked like a mobile military sniper’s nest could quell the anxieties of a community outraged by allegations regarding the excessive use of force. It revealed itself as a raw matter of public intimidation.

Justice for Trayvon would have looked like Renisha McBride getting the help she needed the night of her accident. Justice for Oscar Grant would have looked like Trayvon Martin making it home to finish watching the NBA All-Star game, Skittles and iced tea in tow. And so on, and so on. Justice should be the affirmation of our existence."

I'm incredibly sad to share the obituary of Tab Rasmussen, my undergraduate advisor who introduced me to the primates, let me do my work study by preparing fossils in his lab, took me all the way to Kenya to experience real fieldwork, and convinced one of his own grad students to take me to Peru with her to be a field assistant. I can't really overstate how much I owe him, and how sorry I am that nobody else will experience his boundless enthusiasm, support, and interest. But he's provided an excellent example for how I would like to interact with my own students in the future. 

This article from 2010 (http://artsci.wustl.edu/~anthnews/Archives/Fall2010/rasmussen.html) is a quintessential example of that. “Research is fascinating because people nowadays think primates are tucked away in corners of the world, like Madagascar,” he says.

In the past, “We had a whole world of tropical rainforests, and there were primates in Missouri. We don’t have fossils here because we didn’t get rocks at the right period, but there were primates zooming around the rainforest right here. Isn’t that cool?”

Recently, there’s been a video going around of cacao farmers in Côte d’Ivoire “tasting chocolate for the first time,” amazed by what they’re eating. Though the video touches on some aspects of the economics of the situation—closing with a “heartwarming” scene where the men enjoy their €2 bar of chocolate before heading back to work where, as the video notes, they’ll earn about €7 a day—it struck a nerve with me. The video offers a pretty uncritical picture of the way cacao production affects the laborers who give us our cheap chocolate.

A Bear Text Adventure

You are a bear. You wake up in a dimly lit cave. Your eyes are adjusted to the low light, so you are able to see the textures of your surroundings. You are about to begin a new day as a bear. There will be many obstacles, mental and physical, for you to overcome. You might find something important. You might meet someone important. You might get hurt. You might eat something. It is up to you. As a bear.

Octopuses have the saddest life stories.

"For many a female octopus, laying eggs marks the beginning of the end. She needs to cover them and defend them against would-be predators. She needs to gently waft currents over them so they get a constant supply of fresh, oxygenated water. And she does this continuously, never leaving and never eating."

"Make no mistake: this is a really, really, really big deal. This is the first downing of a civilian jetliner in this conflict and, if it were the rebels who brought it down, all kinds of ugly things follow. For one thing, what seemed to be gelling into a frozen local conflict has now broken into a new phase, one that directly threatens European security. The plane, let's recall, was flying from Amsterdam."

It's been a good couple of days

+Andrew David Thaler tells the truth:

"So, in the last week, we’ve been asked to ignore the profoundly misogynistic behavior of one long-departed scientist because his contributions to the field are too important; a graduate student is suing her former university for what appears to be systematic sexual harassment by her superiors; 1 in 5 researchers in the field report being victims of sexual assault; and one of the leading scientific journals thinks is perfectly appropriate to feature a dehumanizing image of sex workers on their cover.

This bullshit doesn’t happen in a vacuum. These things are related."

Some more data on the paper on sexual harassment in fieldwork I spoke about during the #hoa  with +Buddhini Samarasinghe and +Zuleyka Zevallos - 71% of women who do fieldwork reported experiencing sexual harassment; 20% reported experiencing sexual assault in the field.

Thank Goodness for Allometric Scaling

"My gig, as a parent, is often to make fantasy less believable. And let me tell you, science is not a huge help in this department. Despite peer-reviewed research to the contrary, my five-year-old continues to believe that vegetables are not needed for growth, sleep is not needed for play, and that crying is the best way to find lost shoes."

"But she does admit that science is quite good at killing monsters."

Preparing for Ebola to cross another border, with some help from human activity

"What is becoming clearer, however, is that human activity is playing a major role in the initial outbreaks of these zoonotic diseases—those that jump between animal and human—like Ebola. Humans are venturing farther and farther into forests, putting more and more pressure on local ecosystems through small-scale gold and diamond mining, deforestation, and conflict. In remote West Africa, where human populations meet the forests, people are increasingly coming into contact with animals, and that, combined with traditional hunting practices, is driving up the risk of a "spill-over" occurring, where Ebola can leap across species."

The Thesis Whisperer + +STEM Women on G+!

Dr +Inger Mewburn is the Director of Research Training at the Australian National University (http://goo.gl/sx3ZeE). Her background was in architecture, but she's specialised in education research since 2006. We will discuss Inger's research on the gender experiences of PhD students as they negotiate their relationships with their supervisors and administration. She will also discuss her popular blog, The Thesis Whisperer, which provides practical advice for students across STEM fields (http://thesiswhisperer.com/). Inger will share insights for women research students and also tell us about her career, and provide tips for navigating a successful path in academia.

Join us on Sunday 6th July at 2.30 PM Pacific/ 10.30PM UK/ Monday 7th of July 7.30AM Australia EST. This HOA will be hosted by Dr +Buddhini Samarasinghe  and Dr +Zuleyka Zevallos . The hangout will be available for viewing on our YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/stemwomen) after the event.

Old reasons for hating the Millenials getting boring? Here's a few new one: we apparently JUST WON'T LEAVE and we're stupid enough to remain optimistic in the face of economics, and also we want to be happy in our careers. Plus we're not nearly as awesome as the generation that follows (http://www.slideshare.net/sparksandhoney/generation-z-final-june-17)

In the American imagination, a professor is perhaps disheveled, but as a product of brainy eccentricity, not of penury. In the American university, this is not the case.

"The rise of adjunct labor in universities is also a student issue. Teachers’ working conditions are students’ learning conditions. And when the average graduate of the class of 2014 leaves school with over $30,000 of debt (nearly twice what the average was twenty years ago, adjusted for inflation), it’s an important consumer issue, too. Students deserve to know how their universities are spending their money, and how they’re contracting with their teachers, especially those teachers who have the most student contact."

Allez les elephants!

Cote d'Ivoire takes on Colombia in today's World Cup match!

While I was in the field, there was a Colombian student doing research at the same site. Once we found out that Colombia and Cote d'Ivoire were in the same pool, the trash talking began... And now, after an ill-advised bet, the life of a goat (and some chili peppers) rides on the outcome of today's game! If Colombia wins, our field assistants have to cook the Colombian student meals for a day (and he can't deal with spicy food, which will be a problem for the Ivorians). If Cote d'Ivoire wins, he has to buy the assistants a goat who will be eaten with great joy (and, probably, lots of chili pepper)!

It's hard to convince people that primate conservation is important and necessary when those same endangered primates are stealing your food!
 
Crop raiding is one of the most common sources of human-nonhuman primate conflict. It can be a serious cost for folks relying on subsistence farming at forest edges, and it certainly doesn't do a lot to improve their feelings towards the monkeys and apes they live in contact with. But, as human populations encroach on protected forests and further fragment others, these sorts of human-wildlife conflicts are only going to increase.
