Stephanie Calahan842FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 2 of 4My goal was to crowdsource a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and #Gratitude, I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1311 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+ #womenongplus #womenonline #womenongoogleplus #women #activeusers #activedirectory #activeengagers #fabfems #googleplusengagers #femalesongoogleplus #female 2013-05-09 17:30:57362381135CC G+

I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better! I'm about to delete you (unless you are in MVA - it's not personal - I still love you)2013-01-12 23:09:36146000CC G+

AJ Durling294This is a bonus circle, and is actually pretty much where I started when I was creating my first circles - Top 500 PlussersIt is the people with the highest number of users - and is actually now only 308 people. When I first collected the Top 500 Plussers on Google+, I spend a lot of time weeding out the people whose posts in which I didn't particularly have an interest (e.g. almost all of the photographers - nothing against people who post photos to G+, it's just me: this is Google+, not Flickr; people who only ever promote themselves - so quite a lot of the pop musicians). The list that is left are people who, I think, actually contribute to the stream. You may find some surprising choices (Dolly Parton?! Actually, yes!). But I hope you enjoy it.I've kept the name Top 500 even though it is a lot fewer than 500. I like the irony... #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #celebrity   #topcircles  2012-10-19 15:06:56307302CC G+

Kim Beasley27,115I'm so excited that the circle of Google+ Business Women has grown to 122 (updated circle is attached)!

Louis Gray115,286Shared Circle: Engaging Women On Google+Last night +Daria Musk highlighted the top 50 women on Google+ who bring great content to her stream. As you can imagine, all users of Google+ bring unique value, but what I've found from having a circle dedicated to some of the great women on Google+, even as that circle has grown to hundreds, is incredible diversity and discovery of new interests.That's not to say men are boring... but... I digress. Here is my updated circle of great ladies on Google+. Add as many or as few as you like, and be prepared for some fantastic content and smart people.2012-04-13 17:44:35382272152CC G+

If you wish to be added or have any suggestions please comment on any of the three.2012-04-05 22:51:30372112CC G+
Jimmy James1,980Ok... Here is what I consider to be a valuable circle indeed. My first shared circle, so why not start with the Best ....Ladies . If you know the G+ Men to Women ratio.... you know there are too few ladies out here so far. Add this circle to balance your stream a bit. There are some very interesting people in here. I left it at 400 to start in case I miss any ladies who want to be added. If I missed you and you would like to be in this circle... let me know. ....this circle includes 1 really cool guy.... the guy all these fantastic Ladies have in common2012-03-16 18:31:504001457CC G+

Louis Gray104,456International Women's Day: A Circle of Top Women on G+Today is International Women's Day http://www.internationalwomensday.com/.In honor of the day, here's a list of some of the most active G+'ers and tech savvy women I interact with on the network. I called this the "Women in Tech" circle when I first created it a few months back, and visiting this circle is a regular stop for me to see diverse updates and interests. I recommend adding this as its own circle and setting the volume slider to what makes sense for you. Over time, I bet a bunch of these people will be some of your favorites in your circles.2012-03-08 22:22:39229251835CC G+

Chris Hoyt1,112Circle Back to GoogleLooking for people who work at Google? Here's a great circle that's a strong addition to any search you've already performed on Google Plus and that I'd include with any other search for Googlers that you've already conducted.What's interesting to me (and that I'm getting around to pointing out) is that whether you're just looking to expand your network as a member of Google+ or actively #recruiting and #sourcing online, I believe that you'll find infinite value from the proper care and feeding of Google Plus circles. In fact, if done correctly (and maintained) it's a fantastic way to filter your Google Plus stream and check the pulse of any company, organization or interest group.In the event you missed it, I did an article back in August that mentioned my interest in Circles and how I'd be exploring the management of them. (http://www.recruiterguy.net/recruiting-management-circles) So far, I've not been disappointed in the ability to really hone in on an area of interest by filtering my streams based on these circles and simply watching the conversation flow. Of course, being able to quickly see all of the updates from a particular company or interest group is just the start. The more proficient we get with our filtering, the easier it is to get the latest from fun entrepreneurs, CEO's, diversity interest groups, active and passive jobseekers and more - these are just a few of my own circles, mind you. You have the ability to filter by profession, seniority, geography, language, etc.The possibilities are endless!I'd love to hear how you, or others, are using circles to manage the information stream you've found in G+ so far.2012-01-04 20:07:36348211CC G+
Stephanie L Davis19,590I was asked by #SMMCamp attendees to share my "Googlers" circle. These are people who work for Google; community managers, engineers, developers, free-lancers; staff... etc. Cheers!2011-12-08 20:06:303648513CC G+
Louis Gray71,017It's been a little while since I shared with you my Googlers circle. This circle includes a massive number of people working on the Google+ project, company execs, and a lot of sharp people working on many of the services you use every day, including +Blogger +Android +YouTube, etc. Now that we can share 500 at a time, have at it. But this circle isn't for everyone, so if you do add them, expect geekiness ahead.2011-11-22 19:13:55500623669CC G+

This Sunday 7/13 and two Sundays after that on 7/27 from 1:30 - 3:00 pm I will be teaching a Yoga and Body Awareness class while chiropractor Shawn Bek is away.  

This will be a Level 1 practice in which I'll cover principles of alignment, safety, and getting the most out of the pose for each major category of the body: core, feet (including Achilles and calves), shoulders, hips, and spine (including forward folds, backbends, side stretches, and twists).  

Whether you are a beginner wanting to learn the fundamentals of yoga or an experienced practitioner that wants to learn general principles that will make your practice better, this will be a great class for you.  It's also a nice way to get that special family member or friend to start practicing yoga.  Hope to see you at Avalon Art and Yoga in Palo Alto on 7/13 and 7/27!

There is something to be said for having a Zen-like austere decor.  A new study looked at how visual surroundings in a kindergarten class affected students' ability to concentrate and learn. (Montessori schools have long emphasized the calmer, understated look.)

“Our culture often paints empathy as weakness,” Jack said, “The current model plays into that view, suggesting that those who don’t like utilitarian thinking are intellectually weak and ruled by primitive passions.

“But these views are fundamentally misleading. Compassion is actually linked to stronger emotion regulation abilities. Decades of research shows that we have to overcome our reflexive feelings of aversion and distress to be ready and willing to help others.”

This is an inspiring and beautiful talk by Elizabeth Gilbert on how success can be as disorienting as failure, and how to carry on, regardless of outcomes.  In the past few weeks I have referred a few friends on both sides of success/failure to this talk.

Evidence shows that women are less self-assured than men—and that to succeed, confidence matters as much as competence. Here's why, and what to do about it.

Studying jazz musicians' ability to improvise gives us some insight into creativity in the brain.  Cultivate creativity by having unprogrammed time and turning off the thinking mind.  The creating brain looks a lot like the dreaming brain, one associated with unconsciousness and meditation.

Concrete, specific goals of benevolence -- like making someone smile or increasing recycling -- instead of following similar but more abstract goals -- like making someone happy or saving the environment are more effective at cultivating happiness.

Great advice on how to give a good presentation. In summary:

- Run a Bar Test: Spend as little as 15 minutes with someone unfamiliar with the content of the presentation to see if they understand the point of the presentation. Force it to be succinct.

- Build your skeleton: It takes three elements to make a great story: Your through-line (the point of the story), “Put me in the room” anecdotes (to give a tactile sense of experience), and Moments of reflection (telling your audience how you feel)

- Craft your story: Less words, more visuals

- Tell your story: Practice, practice, practice. There is no such thing as a natural-born presenter.

Beautiful abstract art?

Rather this is a graphical representation of the frequency of four digit PIN codes. On the x-axes we have the first two PIN digits from 00.. to 99.., on the y-axes we have the last two digits from ..00 to ..99. Popular PIN codes include the yellow diagonal, PIN codes of the form XYXY, and even more bright XXXX. The vertical yellow line are PIN codes marking a year, mostly between the years 1930-2010. The yellow blob on the lower left are US formatted calendar days from 01/01 to 12/31 (you can even see how many days each month has). Also singleton yellow dots can be explained.

Anyway, it is beautiful, in my opinion.

“We found that male-narrated pitches were rated as more persuasive, logical and fact-based that were the same pitches narrated by a female voice,” the authors concluded.

Post-TED recovery:  I came back sick as a dog after running around in the cold rainy weather while in Vancouver.  I finally got some sleep -- 10 hours last night!  Those anti-cold drugs really do help.  Here is a photo of the 745 foot sky sculpture that hovered near the convention center from Janet Echelman, and TED's blog post about it:
