Trever McGhee92,185Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00203  
Beech Hill Hotel1,278It’s time to put on your dancing shoes..... After an overwhelming response to our Spring & Summer Ball last year we have decided to hold both celebrations again this year; firstly in May, usually the first sunny days of the Summer, and again in August at the height of Summer. You will be welcomed with a glass of Champagne Cocktail to enjoy on the terrace, hopefully in the sunshine, followed by a delicious four course dinner full of fantastic Cumbrian summer fayre. Following dinner there will be entertainment from salsa band ‘La Tinto Bros’ and dancing until midnight. The La Tinto Bros are a dynamic trio, all originating from South America. They play a variety of styles from background Latin jazz music to loud salsa party tunes. In their repertoire they have the sounds of the most popular Latin American tunes & many rhythms like BossaNova, Bolero, Son, Cha Cha Cha, Boogaloo, Salsa, Merengue & more. Their set list includes popular English songs blended with Latin rhythms. The date of our Summer Ball will be in August 2012, the evening is priced at just £39 per person which include the food and the entertainment. To book or for further information please call 0844 502 7587  Summer Ball2012-08-11 19:00:003

Dallas McMillan7,412Circle from the land downunder - Australia's top 200 PlussersWho are Australia's most followed people on Google Plus?I've put together this circle of Australia's top 200 profiles (by follower numbers - not engagement - some aren't particularly active) on Google Plus.It's pretty interesting to see the types of profiles which make the cut.Here is my quick overview:By far the most dominant characteristic of the top 200 are photographers - professional and amateur.The other notable individuals are a couple of cricketers in the top 10, a smattering of celebrity chefs, musicians, writers, artists, models and other celebrities.There are also fair numbers of Google employees, IT workers, social media and marketing types as well as a decent number of scientists and mathematicians. The only politician I noticed was Malcolm Turnbull - the Prime Minister and Leader of the opposition are conspicuous by their absence.I got the list from +CircleCount http://www.circlecount.com/au/profileslist/ and I've made a few tweaks - removing a couple of profiles that were inactive or had moved away from Australia. There were a number of others which probably don't belong as they now work in the USA or elsewhere.  #australia   #australianphotographers   #circleshare  I've notified members of the circle - let me know if you don't want to be listed.2013-08-04 14:24:522009213

Paul Snedden7,059Advance Australia Share - The CircleWOW! What an absolutely overwhelming response I received to my request for your favourite Australians (http://goo.gl/mFLe1). You certainly did deliver.The circle contains a bunch of people who I was already following, but a wealth of freshly undiscovered goodness for me as well. In total, 436 Awesome Aussies waiting to fill your stream with all sorts of goodness. It's got photogs, geeks, writers, a kiwi (ANZACs all the way), expat Aussies living abroad and a couple of long-term Aussie residents who won't admit to being Australian :)I'd like to make special mention to the following people for making this circle possible.The Resharers+Mz Maau  +Giuseppe Basile +Starway Paul +JPG Photo Gallery  +Daryl Hunt +Jim Munro +Brad Chasenore +Annie Yim +Rose T +Rob E +James Fridley +Gerardine Rudolphy +Christopher Prins +Charles Strebor +Peter Lake and +Australia Great The Contributors+2012-12-31 22:36:03436692946

Olivio Sarikas2,145Active Users on G+So here is the newest update of the people who interacted with my content on G+. This is part of the "On Display" Project, that i created to bring together active people on G+. Since i didn´t publish any shared circles of this project lately, this time it is a mix of all people who are new and all people i added to my "On Display" circle before. The project is called "On Display" because these are the people shown in the "In Olivio's circles" area of my profile.read more about the project here:https://plus.google.com/u/0/112686843091136170762/posts/5s5vfxoWCQJP.S.: accidentally all my pages are also in the shared circle. i hope you don´t mind. sorry for that mistakeif you want you can remove them. they are:+Note of absence - travel blog +What the Hack +The Art of Games +Electronic Garden2012-03-31 17:03:04159626

Kathryn Crosby19When I returned to G+ for about the third time and tried to actually give it a chance, I found the most frustrating issue was that there are so few active Australians that there are often long dead times while the rest of the world is asleep. Like me, many of the Australians in this circle posted a couple of things in July/August/September, but because no one else seemed to be posting anything they moved away. None the less, having got near enough to 500 Aussies, I figured I should share the circle and add it to the database. Perhaps with a heap of Australian circling going on it will wake things up a bit. I have tried to cull out the wannabe Australians and the completely inactive, but there may have been a few missed out. If I have missed you please feel free to post in the comments and I'll start work on a second Australians circle.2011-11-02 08:55:134993058

What's wrong with higher education, summed up in one sentence:

I would literally prefer to be doing anything else in the world other than be here

No offence, kid, but in that case, why are you here? Unfortunately, this is quite typical of many students: they're at Uni, studying things they're not really interested in, to get a degree which they hope will give them a career in ... what exactly? Have they thought this through? 

Imagine for a moment a University where the students were passionately interested in the subject. ... No, I can't either.  But that should be the ideal. 

And the system doesn't help. When I studied, I was passionate about chemistry and maths, but you needed 4 first year subjects so I also took physics and psychology. Which immediately divides my attention and limits the time available for any one thing. No chanceto... more »

THE FUTURE OF EMPLOYMENT: HOW SUSCEPTIBLE ARE JOBS TO COMPUTERISATION?

This is a couple of year's old now, but I see no signs that the conclusions are wrong. The most important question we need our politicians to answer is "What are we going to do about it?". The mantra here in Australia is still jobs, jobs, jobs, and growth. But what if there are no jobs?

Analytics for our Library web site: browsers and operating systems. Nothing surprising about os, since we have a University full of windows PCs.  Actually, I am surprised by the Macintosh numbers, higher than I expected. A little surprised that IE is down below 14%. And I thought Firefox would be higher. But good to see Chrome is kicking everybodies butt.

Response time from Google+ and Gmail is dismal -- but only on my Ubuntu (14.05) desktop. At first I thought it might be a lack of ram, since Chrome is notorious for eating ram. But no, there's 25% unused. I've also checked against Firefox -- OK -- and Chrome on Windows 7 (ugh!)
So I'm now thinking there's a problem with the latest beta release of Chrome, 43.0.2357.65. Oddly, things only seem to be slow with Google services. Everything else is rocking along. Anyone else seeing this?

What is literature but the expression of moods by the vehicle of symbol and incident? And are there not moods which need heaven, hell, purgatory, and faeryland for their expression, no less than this dilapidated earth? Nay, are there not moods which shall find no expression unless there be men who dare to mix heaven, hell, purgatory, and faeryland together, or even to set the heads of beasts to the bodies of men, or to thrust the souls of men into the heart of rocks? Let us go forth, the tellers of tales, and seize whatever prey the heart long for, and have no fear. Everything exists, everything is true, and the earth is only a little dust under our feet.

W.B. Yeats, The Celtic Twilight

Material Design is nice ... but I had to try three different icon font sets before I found one that included everything I needed. This one is good. Although some of the community contributions left me scratching my head. An icon needs to be instantly recognisable as to meaning and purpose, so how exactly should I use the balloon, or the carrot? I guess context is everything.

Thank Google ! Ring the bells! Hurrah! The Shared Circles option has been removed.

I hate shared circles, and I've been burned by them. I'm still removing people from the last one, as of 5 minutes ago. And I've had a long-standing policy of removing people who post shared circles (especially those who post nothing else).

Good riddance.

Back to Wah Hong for tonight's dinner. This restaurant has become a regular on our list, because the food is so consistently good. Tea duck. Wah hinges chicken. Crispy beef. And of course the salt and pepper whir bait for a starter. All at a very reasonable price. Great spot for a shared banquet.

This is a short video of our cat Tenzing. (Yes, she is a climber.) She always greets me with this wailing that sounds like a distress call, but is actually just her mode of chatting. She also sometimes runs around growling like a small dog ... but too fast for me to capture on video.

Trip today down to Deep Creek Conservation Park. It lived up to its name, being quite really steep. Fortunately hadn't rained for a few days, so only a bit slippery. Good view of Kangaroo Island across Backstairs Passage. And wallabies everywhere (animals, not rugby players).

Feeling properly knackered now.

Interesting example of media spin/bias: the other day, there was a story about changes to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. The commercial TV news covered this as "you won't be able to get paracetamol on prescription because it's costing the Gov. too much". The ABC covered the same story as "the Gov. may require a prescription for Codeine based pain killers which are currently available without, because people are abusing them."

Both were right, but only presenting part of the story. The first presents a cost issue, the second a health issue.

[Also, you can get generic brand paracetamol from the supermarket for next to nothing, so why the f**k would anyone get or issue a prescription for it.?]

What's wrong with higher education, summed up in one sentence:

I would literally prefer to be doing anything else in the world other than be here

No offence, kid, but in that case, why are you here? Unfortunately, this is quite typical of many students: they're at Uni, studying things they're not really interested in, to get a degree which they hope will give them a career in ... what exactly? Have they thought this through?

What's wrong with higher education, summed up in one sentence:

I would literally prefer to be doing anything else in the world other than be here

No offence, kid, but in that case, why are you here? Unfortunately, this is quite typical of many students: they're at Uni, studying things they're not really interested in, to get a degree which they hope will give them a career in ... what exactly? Have they thought this through?

And the system doesn't help. When I studied, I was passionate about chemistry and maths, but you needed 4 first year subjects so I also took physics and psychology. Which immediately divides my attention and limits the time available for any one thing. No chance to truly immerse yourself in the subject you're keen on. Always the pressure to complete assignments, pass exams, its a treadmill that you can't stop. No wonder kids lose any passion for study and treat it as a chore.___

Yes, exactly. This idea -- that we should all get off our phones/tablets/laptops/internet and get out and talk to people  -- is just a nonsense, because it assumes we're all the same. Some people are gregarious extroverts, some are the opposite, and most are somewhere in between. Never assume that what works for you will work for everyone.

This is fun. I got 7/10 because I was overthinking, and rejecting a couple of choices as "too obvious". Sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar.

So, it was Earth Day yesterday (it's the 23rd here already). But you know what? It's Earth Day again today. And every day. We can't fix this mess unless we take action every day. Turn it off. Reuse. Re-fuse. Recycle. Cycle. Walk. Take the stairs. Eat fresh. Grow something. The world will be a nicer place, and you'll be healthier and happier.

So, yesterday, The Lovely Kay got stranded when the car wouldn't go. I looked under the bonnet, but didn't see anything I recognised, so took it to the Man to be looked at. .... $1800 so far. o_O

So, now I have my new Galaxy Note 4, and I have Google Cardboard, I can experience 3D virtual reality .... which is very cool, except I may have to customise Cardboard for the Note 4 -- if I hold it too tightly, it squeezes the volume controls and deafens me. I guess cutting a slot where the controls sit will work.

Also, what's the deal with the magnets? Doesn't seem to work on the Note4. :/
