Alex Grossman56,667G+ Engagers CircleIt's been a while since I shared a circle, so here's a small circle of people I recommend following. They are great to engage with, full of energy and opinions and fun, with very little anger, disrespect, or poor manners. Hope you enjoy all of them as much as I do. They certainly make my time in G+ lots of fun. :)2013-08-22 03:31:187510711

Dede King0The Fundie CircleIt's round. I've hand picked the ones I interact with not because they're relevant to me or because of what they post, but because I could pick them out of a line-up, state their name and at least one fact about them and they're generally wonderful people to know. The top 10 I'd probably bail out of jail and take a bullet for, but that's neither here nor there. One thing none of them can be accused of, is being soporific. As a disclaimer: Circle with caution or stalk quietly as the circle is filled with every type of G+ user that might not appeal to all tastes including:1. Photo fundies2. Meme fundies3. Gif fundies4. News link reshare fundies5. Art fundies6. Science fundies7. Music fundies8. Narcissistic fundies9. Selfie shot fundies10. Food fundies11. Passive-aggressive one liner vague posting fundies12. Contrarian fundies (not trolls, just opinionated)13. Long form post fundies14. Leg humper fundies15. Lastly, the G+ fundies (they know everything about G+ and will tell you how to Internet)16. High Voltage Noms (+A.V. Flox)17. Low Voltage Noms (+Jake Kern)18. Cat fundies (+Bobbi Jo Woods)19. Sine Wave Noms (+fan tai)It's not really a circle meant to be shared, just my way of saying hey to all of you that make this place worth while <3 No hard feelings if I forgot anyone, it happens. Have a wonderful day.2013-04-17 15:28:3834742831130

Dave Tozier0+Danial Hallock originally shared this post:The Three HundredRevised CopyIt's been about a month since my last share of #thethreehundred  so I wanted to share the revised copy of the circle; and true to my word, there have been a lot of revisions in the last month.For example, I've gone through each and every one of the 200 some odd recommendations and circle shares that came about from the last circle share.  As a result, of the original 297 that were shared a little under a month ago (http://goo.gl/xqGb4), I removed approximately 137 300ers and added 129 new members.  You can expect this circle to continue to change, but I think the triple digit adjustments are mostly done.  For those of you just joining us, this is a continuation of a project where I've been changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).As always, If you're notified you're in it. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream?  Remember: #sharingiscaring  (Link to this post: http://goo.gl/cHwht)2012-11-20 17:22:28295000

Danial Hallock4,130The Three HundredRough DraftA few weeks ago I posted a rather lengthy post about how I was changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).  This is the first rough draft of that circle, minus a few ninjas that prefer not to be shared out.  As such, the landscape of this circle will change drastically over the next few months; but I wanted to give the people who are following this circle a glimpse of what to expect.  As always, If you're notified you're in it. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream? :D #thethreehundred   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring  2012-10-22 15:52:142971191078
Alex Grossman27,422Last time I shared a relevancy circle was back in July. From then until now (October 19), it's only changed by 7 people, and most but not all of that was near the end of the list. So, it's remarkably consistent.These 99 users are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself, so a total of 100). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is definitely more accurate now than last time. Does the algorithm get better over time due to more data? I still suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd still be curious and interested to learn more about it.Anyway, these people are relevant to me and truly help me enjoy my time sharing, talking, discussing, and hanging out on G+. So, thank you to all of you :)TGIF and have a great start to the weekend!P.S. - Typical inconsistent G+ - I could share the Movie Lovers Circle earlier today with about 130 people being notified. However, by mid-morning I couldn't notify the 99 people in this Circle. Now, I can again. But it appears that instead of setting a limit on the number of people in a circle, maybe they've set a limit on the number of people you could notify in a set period of time? Very strange. If anybody has any clue as to why this is, please let me know.2012-10-20 03:24:2710023124
Alex Grossman27,364It's TGIF so hope you have a great day. Here's a Circle I thought I'd share today for Follow Friday - Movie Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about movies, all kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, engaging with others, sharing and exchanging comments, please let me know and I can try and add you to this Circle (notification limits permitting). If you're a member of this circle, you agree to participate in a respectful manner. Due to the changing and, at times uncertain, notification restrictions Google has in terms of number of people you can notify with a post I've split this up into two Circle. The overflow from this Circle can be found at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/Ad9LJFo9PLrFYI - you can find today's movie thread at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/RDDzuGdsvLX #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #movies   #film  2012-10-19 14:01:4110111219

Andrew Eva2,872Thought for #followfriday   I'd share my "Makes me Think" circle.These folks all post things, or engage in my posts, with comments and thoughts that make me think. If I find myself at home, hours later, still thinking about a comment, or post, or idea that was being discussed, one of these individuals was most likely part of that discussion or triggered the thought.I hope they all challenge you to think as well.2012-09-28 17:25:226233626
Alex Grossman26,573For another Follow Friday Circle for today, here is my Music Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about and listen to music. All kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. Unlike other circles, not all shares will be public since some people don't want to see playlists or song shares in their stream.

Alarm bells that don’t go off.  Ted Cruz declared on TV that “satellite data demonstrate for the last 17 years, there’s been zero warming.” And immediately my Specificity Alarm went off.  What?  You don’t have a specificity alarm?  Well you need one, because it helps you to detect when damned liars are at least trying to weasel a way  out of speaking direct falsehood.  Like a kid proclaiming: “Who broke your window half an hour ago, Mrs. Smith? Can’t be me, cause I’ve been waaaay over here for 26 minutes!

Seventeen years? Hm… why 17 years?  And why “satellite data”?  Read this article. It proves this fellow to be far, far worse than a damned liar.  He’s a damned, lying lawyer.

The downside of securely locked cockpit doors.

❝ As officials struggled Wednesday to explain why a jet with 150 people on board crashed in relatively clear skies, an investigator said evidence from a cockpit voice recorder indicated one pilot left the cockpit before the plane’s descent and was unable to get back in.

A senior military official involved in the investigation described “very smooth, very cool” conversation between the pilots during the early part of the flight from Barcelona to Düsseldorf. Then the audio indicated that one of the pilots left the cockpit and could not re-enter.

“The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer,” the investigator said. “And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. There is never an answer.” ❞

The Demolition of Workers’ Comp

Over the past decade, states have slashed workers’ compensation benefits, denying injured workers help when they need it most and shifting the cost of workplace accidents onto taxpayers.

Workers’ compensation began as a “pact” between workers and employers at the beginning of the Industrial Age. The pact prohibited the injured worker from filing a lawsuit against the employer and in exchange the employer would take care of all the medical costs of the injured worker as well as provide financial sustenance until the worker could return to work.

The Demolition of Workers’ Comp

Over the past decade, states have slashed workers’ compensation benefits, denying injured workers help when they need it most and shifting the cost of workplace accidents onto taxpayers.

Workers’ compensation began as a “pact” between workers and employers at the beginning of the Industrial Age. The pact prohibited the injured worker from filing a lawsuit against the employer and in exchange the employer would take care of all the medical costs of the injured worker as well as provide financial sustenance until the worker could return to work.

No longer
.
Over the past decade, state after state has been dismantling America’s workers’ comp system with disastrous consequences for many of the hundreds of thousands of people who suffer serious injuries at work each year, a ProPublica and NPR investigation has found.

The cutbacks have been so drastic in some places that they virtually guarantee injured workers will plummet into poverty. Workers often battle insurance companies for years to get the surgeries, prescriptions and basic help their doctors recommend.

The changes, often passed under the banner of “reform,” have been pushed by big businesses and insurance companies on the false premise that costs are out of control.

In fact, employers are paying the lowest rates for workers’ comp insurance since the 1970s. And in 2013, insurers had their most profitable year in over a decade, bringing in a hefty 18 percent return.

All the while, employers have found someone else to foot the bill for workplace accidents: American taxpayers, who shell out tens of billions of dollars a year through Social Security Disability Insurance, Medicare and Medicaid for lost wages and medical costs not covered by workers’ comp.

ProPublica analyzed reams of insurance industry data, studied arcane state laws and obtained often confidential medical and court records to provide an unprecedented look at the unwinding of workers’ comp laws across the country.

Among the findings
:
~ Since 2003, legislators in 33 states have passed workers’ comp laws that reduce benefits or make it more difficult for those with certain injuries and diseases to qualify for them. Florida has cut benefits to its most severely disabled workers by 65 percent since 1994.

~ Where a worker gets hurt matters. Because each state has developed its own system, an amputated arm can literally be worth two or three times as much on one side of a state line than the other. The maximum compensation for the loss of an eye is $27,280 in Alabama, but $261,525 in Pennsylvania.

~ Many states have not only shrunk the payments to injured workers, they’ve also cut them off after an arbitrary time limit — even if workers haven’t recovered. After John Coffell hurt his back at an Oklahoma tire plant last year, his wages dropped so dramatically that he and his family were evicted from their home.

~ Employers and insurers increasingly control medical decisions, such as whether an injured worker needs surgery. In 37 states, workers can’t pick their own doctor or are restricted to a list provided by their employers.

~ In California, insurers can now reopen old cases and deny medical care based on the opinions of doctors who never see the patient and don’t even have to be licensed in the state. Joel Ramirez, who was paralyzed in a warehouse accident, had his home health aide taken away, leaving him to sit in his own feces for up to eight hours.

I'm confused by this phrase "biblical marriage".

1. A number of Christian denominations seem to think that the bible is just fine with marriage equality. So where do you get off saying that the United States government (or Starbucks, or anyone else) should be required to follow only your interpretation of the bible? That's precisely why we separate church and state; to keep one religion from trumping others. (Be glad Jefferson was wrong, he thought we'd all be Unitarians by now.)

2. The Bible definitely describes some marriages, but they certainly aren't all "one man, one woman". So what exactly are you arguing for? Multiple wives? Forcing marriage in case of rape?

Like it or not. Religious denominations pick and choose what rules to follow. And you don't get to tell them which ones are right and which ones are wrong. When someone keeps you from marrying the person you want, or forces you to marry someone you don't. Then your religious rights are being trampled upon.

So no. Starbucks didn't say that you should sell your shares if you support the biblical version of marriage. They told you to sell your shares if you want to force other people to abide by your own personal interpretation of the Bible.___

If you debug REST interfaces on the Mac, I really can't say enough good about Paw.

In my environment I often have to do the same query against half a dozen different development clusters (all with slightly different base URLs), and on each of those queries, I have to specify the ID of the specific device I'm emulating. With Paw I can set up a single list of queries that have the base URL and device ID as variables, and trivially switch environments and send different queries.

Furthermore, you can chain queries. I can create a query that uses a field in the output of one query as the input into another, and then as I run each one, it uses the results of the previous one.

I can export the queries as cURL or Python code (and much more) to send the code to other people. And I can view the URL arguments as editable fields (that alone is lovely for quickly viewing... more »

It's a huge time-saver.

We're creating the perfect infrastructure for governmental abide. Whether or not you think it's happened yet.

I cannot stress this enough.

"To an increasing degree, we're counting on having angels in office and making ourselves vulnerable to devils. Bush and Obama have built infrastructure any devil would lust after. Behold the items on an aspiring tyrant's checklist that they've provided their successors:

* A precedent that allows the president to kill citizens in secret without prior judicial or legislative review
* The power to detain prisoners indefinitely without charges or trial
* Ongoing warrantless surveillance on millions of Americans accused of no wrongdoing, converted into a permanent database so that data of innocents spied upon in 2007 can be accessed in 2027
*Using ethnic profiling to choose the targets of secret spying, as the NYPD did with John Brennan's blessing
* Normalizing situations in which the law itself is secret -- and whatever mischief is hiding in those secret interpretations
* The permissibility of droning to death people whose identities are not even known to those doing the killing
* The ability to collect DNA swabs of people who have been arrested even if they haven't been convicted of anything
* A torture program that could be restarted with an executive order

Even if you think Bush and Obama exercised those extraordinary powers responsibly, what makes you think every president would? How can anyone fail to see the huge potential for abuses?

I am not saying no one would resist a tyrant. Perhaps Congress would assert itself. Perhaps the people would rise up. Then again, perhaps it would be too late by the time the abuses were evident. (America has had horrific abuses of power in the past under weaker executives who were less empowered by technology; and numerous other countries haven't recognized tyrants until it was too late.) Part of the problem is how much the Bush-Obama paradigm permits the executive to do in secret. Take that paradigm, add another successful 9/11-style attack, even after many years of very little terrorism, and who knows what would happen?

No one does."___We're creating the perfect infrastructure for governmental abide. Whether or not you think it's happened yet.

Since I was posting about Contra Dances. Here's one of my favorite bands, Moving Violations.

As with most sets, they go through several different tunes. The music keeps getting more and more fun. You're watching the dance once it's gotten going and become more fluid. At the beginning they always walk everyone through it--so beginners are always welcome. There's lots of stumbling and mistakes as people get the pattern down, with everyone helping out...and then it just starts to flow.

The other thing that I've always loved about contra dances is the diversity of dress, age, and gender. (Ethnicity not so much, but this is New England (Western Mass) we're talking about. :/)

I think Scalzi might be spending a little too much time on Twitter. :)

I solved this particular problem with my kids when they were very young. I asked them to promise that they would never be embarrassed by anything I did.

Then anytime they were, I'd bring that up. "Hey! You promised!"

This is why my daughter, wisely, rarely invites friends over

On March 22, 2010, communication with NASA's Mars rover Spirit was lost.

Originally designed for a 90 Sol mission (a Sol, one Martian day, is slightly longer than one Earth day) few would have expected Mars Exploration Rover Spirit to operate as long as 2210 Sols - that’s 24.5 times the planned mission duration!

“It’s an incredible testimony to engineering that this plucky little craft survived 3 winters, when it wasn’t designed to survive any such weather conditions at all,” said Neil Mottinger, a navigation engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

On March 22, 2010, communication with NASA's Mars rover Spirit was lost.

Originally designed for a 90 Sol mission (a Sol, one Martian day, is slightly longer than one Earth day) few would have expected Mars Exploration Rover Spirit to operate as long as 2210 Sols - that’s 24.5 times the planned mission duration!

“It’s an incredible testimony to engineering that this plucky little craft survived 3 winters, when it wasn’t designed to survive any such weather conditions at all,” said Neil Mottinger, a navigation engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Landing on the opposite side of Mars from its twin, the still operating Opportunity rover, Spirit was part of an effort to answer important questions surrounding the history of the Martian environment and its suitability for the formation of life. Understandably, one central element of these questions was to better understand the history of water on the planet - from its current status to what early Martian topography may have looked like.

One of many discoveries that Spirit made included finding supportive evidence suggesting rocks from the plains of Gusev had been slightly altered by tiny amounts of water. As the rover had observed, outside coatings and cracks within these samples had suggested water deposited minerals.

While Spirit delivered troves of valuable data home during its activity, it became irrecoverably obstructed in soft soil on Sol 1892 (May 1st, 2009), an incident that would spell the end for the rover. Attempts to free the rover ended on Sol 2155 (January 26, 2010), when NASA reclassified the mission as a stationary research platform. It continued performing science operations from its current location until communication with Spirit was lost on Sol 2210 (March 22, 2010). Attempts to reestablish communication with the rover have been unsuccessful.

Unmasking racial microagressions and hidden biases.

This is an older article (2009), but no less relevant.

❝ Meanwhile, social psychologists Jack Dovidio, PhD, of Yale University, and Samuel L. Gaertner, PhD, of the University of Delaware, have demonstrated across several studies that many well-intentioned whites who consciously believe in and profess equality unconsciously act in a racist manner, particularly in ambiguous circumstances. In experimental job interviews, for example, whites tend not to discriminate against black candidates when their qualifications are as strong or as weak as whites'. But when candidates' qualifications are similarly ambiguous, whites tend to favor white over black candidates, the team has found.

The "slow TV" movement. Slow, long, and apparently, fascinating.

"Life is best when it's a bit strange," says Norwegian television producer Thomas Hellum in this wonderful introduction to Norway's "slow TV" movement. Its most amazing expression thus far has been a live broadcast of a coastal excursion that lasted more than 134 hours and was wildly popular.

This brief explanatory intro is quite fun to watch, and I have also found both the full-length recording, and a 35 minutes summary of the voyage (https://youtu.be/2uXzkNYsQfM). I've started watching one of the train journeys, and I am transfixed.

The Sword In The Glass

I went on a photo walk last night, and right by the spot I parked was a wall with two circular backlit stained glass insets that caught my eye. A nice family happened to be passing by, and I asked if their boys would mind posing in front of the circle with the sword. It turned out they were happy to. I'm pretty happy with this result, and I think I'll have some more from last night to post, as well.
