|Science on Google+||498,598||Data blitz is a new hangout (not Hangout On Air), which is hosted by the Science on Google+ Community (http://goo.gl/uhJCN). This monthly hangout will start at 10:00 PM (EDT) on the second Wednesday of each month, and the main goal is to create a platform so researchers can get feedback on their hot off the press research findings and discuss other issues in research, funding, and publishing. There are only two rules. First, to keep things moving, presentations cannot exceed one slide! Second, due to the 10 person limit of hangouts, all individuals who join the hangout will be expected to contribute to the discussion by presenting research or research related issues. RSVP “yes” if you want an invite for the next Science on Google+ Data Blitz.||Science on Google+ Data Blitz||2013-10-10 04:00:00||52|

|Danial Hallock||6,197||The Three Hundred"Completed" CopyAs most of you probably know by now, I have been working on a #circlemanagement project for quite some time now, in which I sought to increase the vetting process that occurs when I add people to my circles. As most of you also know, I've been absolutely swamped and have barely had time to share content (let alone post my own or curate circles), so it's taken me a while to get here.However, after only six months to the day (lucky coincidence) I've managed to finish what I would consider a mostly-complete copy of this circle. You can see the vetting process and the history of it here (http://goo.gl/kqE8h), and as always I encourage you to add and share this circle as you see fit!If you're notified, you're in it! If you do not wish to be included in any future circle shares, please let me know via private message. #circleshare #sharingiscaring #engagers ||2013-04-20 13:17:46||301||98||13||101|

|Fraser Cain||759,117||The 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 POST||2013-03-19 22:39:31||399||67||159||161|
|Max Huijgen||41,136||Europe calling: the old giant wakes up and calls on its peeps! A new circle of Europeans as I promised long ago to connect the people who responded and share them. See for the first shared circle this post https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/PDUi13o9dB1The original post was shared 225 times. You can find it here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/CdhmHGbYjgiPart 2 is still open and can be found here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/NDAhG4fP2a7If you didn´t do so already, post there and as long as I have spots free, I will circle you as I want to see my streams come alive during European hours.There was a shared feeling that it would be great to get some attention from G+ for Europe with official hangouts from the community managers during European times, feature roll-outs from Google no longer restricted to the US, having some central point to share European circles and last but not least the desire to have hangouts without having to burn the midnight oil. To help solve this and get Europeans together on the same page I created +Europeans on G+ It already has multiple managers out of the community and that initiative recently span off +European Photo but feel to offer a bit of your time for this community project. Circle the page if you didn´t already do so. We need more peeps from all over Europe to participate and enjoy G+I hope these posts can do the rounds through Europe and gets us firmly on the G+ map. So even if you´re not European yourself, but sympathize with the initiatives to form a community here, help spread the word and share it.And don´t forget: we all love the other continents and most of us have circles which encompass the whole world. So it´s not against others, but pro us :)||2013-03-15 15:05:14||291||53||20||76|

|Fraser Cain||694,882||The 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 02:59:31||420||54||40||84|
|Peter Smalley||10,068||#sharedpubliccircles #science It's been a while since I shared a circle. Let's fix that, shall we? Here is my Circle of Science. Here you will find people who are practicing scientists, science writers, and science enthusiasts - and sometimes all three at once. There are biologists, chemists, physicists, microbiologists, food safety scientists, mathematicians, neurologists, astronomers and many other disciplines represented here. But regardless of their specialties they are intelligent, interested, and interesting.I won't call this a curated circle per se, but I can personally speak to quality of many of these individuals. Many of them are true gems.FOR SCIENCE!||2012-11-26 17:29:54||501||5||2||11|
|Dave Tozier||0||+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.

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?

|Paul Christen||41||To the person that originally shared this circle with me (I forgot who...)Thank you.I am getting really tired of the glorification of stupid and the vilification of intelligence. I am afraid that its a systemic problem and frankly, I see no end in sight. Its similar to American politics in many ways."Well sure, professional athletes shouldn't rape women, but the dood can throw a football!" "Well, yeah, he ran a dog fighting ring, but let him play football and be a role model to children anyway."We had a President, that was re-elected, that on any scale was a buffoon at best.The list goes on, and lets not forget the other side of the proverbial coin, how often have we heard politicians talk about the "elite smart people"?Watch an episode or two of "Big Bang Theory". REALLY funny show, I refuse to watch it. I saw two episodes and both portrayed intelligence as negative.I heard an adult say (and I shit you not) "Kids don't need to learn what the mathematical median is, its useless knowledge, average is good enough." I tried to explain how it differs from average and how knowing the average and the median can help get a better view of the data (no point in going too deep) and got "nope, not needed".Whatever, I'm ranting and off the rails here.Do what you need to do to keep YOUR intelligence up and those around you, for the love of Xenu, fight the good fight. Following this circle might help.||2012-11-07 13:15:58||413||5||1||10|

"If the results can be replicated reliably and scaled up — and that's a big "if," since NASA only produced them on a very small scale over a two-day period — they could ultimately result in ultra-light weight, ultra fast spacecraft that could carry humans to Mars in weeks instead of months, and to the nearest star system outside our own (Proxima Centurai) in just about 30 years."

The triviality of this statement is more telling than the statement itself:
“Any creatures who will be alive to witness the death of the sun won’t be human— they could be as different from us as we are from protozoa. Indeed future evolution is going to take place not on the Darwinian time scale, of natural selection, but on the technology time scale, because we’re obtaining the capacity to modify the genome.”

In a genome-wide analysis, scientists from University of California-San Diego and Yale found that we are far more genetically similar to our friends than we are to strangers of the same population. In fact, researchers say our friends are as “related” — genetically speaking — as fourth cousins. Their findings suggest that, in addition to our physical and biological environment, our social networks also play an important role in human evolution.

The Gordian knot was a famously intricate knot attached to a sacred ox cart in the ancient city of Gordium, near Ankara in modern-day Turkey.
In 333 BC, Alexander the Great attempted to untie the knot, but was unable to find the ends of the knot in order to do so. Instead, he is said to have undone the knot using what is now called the Alexandrian solution, which was to cut the knot in half with his sword.
Although there is good historical evidence that Alexander undid the Gordian knot, sources differ on how he accomplished this. According to some accounts, a more plausible theory is that he undid the knot by first removing the pin around which the knot was tied. This might have exposed the two ends of the knot, making it much easier to untie.
Another possibility is that the Gordian knot did not have ends, and was a... more »

New DNA. New letters/nucleotides
"When biologists talk about the letters in the DNA alphabet, they are actually talking about nucleotides: molecules that bind together to make up the DNA double helix. Normally, these molecules are made up of four letters: A,T, C and G. But scientists at the Scripps Research Institute have managed to add a single pair of artificial "X" and "Y" nucleotides to the genetic code of an E. Coli strain, reports The New York Times. And thus far, the bacteria appear to be reproducing normally and passing on the new X-Y pair to their offspring."

The 117th Element
"After four years of painstaking research, the discovery of the periodic table's 117th element has been confirmed. Element 117, otherwise known as ununseptium, was originally discovered back in 2010 by a group of American and Russian physicists with the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR). However, it has taken years for the discovery to be replicated by another independent team, which the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) requires. Now the element, with the approval of the IUPAC, can be named and added to the periodic table, extending our understanding of transuranium elements."

Mice fear man, but not women
"People have not paid attention to this in the entire history of scientific research of animals," says Jeffrey Mogil, a pain researcher at McGill University and lead author of the study. "I think that it may have confounded, to whatever degree, some very large subset of existing research*."
That's why a new study in which researchers found that mice actually fear men, but not women, has the potential to be so disruptive.
Previous results reflect this male-induced stress effect — and they know nothing about it.

Well... Another theory.
"Now, physicists are unmasking a more fundamental source for the arrow of time: Energy disperses and objects equilibrate, they say, because of the way elementary particles become intertwined when they interact — a strange effect called quantum entanglement.
“Finally, we can understand why a cup of coffee equilibrates in a room,” said Tony Short, a quantum physicist at Bristol. “Entanglement builds up between the state of the coffee cup and the state of the room.”

"Contrary to popular belief, the presence or absence of certain sex organs isn't the determining factor when deciding which animal of a species is female and which is male. In fact, biologists don't use sex chromosomes either. They actually rely on the size of an animal's gametes — sperm in males and oocytes in females. As the rule goes, females are the sex that contribute the largest gametes, whereas males are the sex that contribute the smallest gametes and therefore expend the least amount of energy on producing these cells. So, in this particular instance of sex-role reversal, the convention still applies: the female in these species of insect produces the largest gametes — egg cells. She simply also happens to sport a penis that she introduces into the male's vagina during copulation."

Land Rover's new concept would give drivers a better view of the road through augmented reality. "The Transparent Bonnet Concept utilizes cameras mounted in the car's grille to capture a view of the road that's usually obscured by the hood. This data is then fed to a heads-up display that shows the video in real-time at the bottom of the windscreen, overlaying where a driver sees their car's bonnet and effectively giving the impression that it — and the engine — are transparent."

Until recently, researchers had been incapable of constructing one of the most emblematic symbols of our own genetic makeup: the eukaryotic chromosome. Now, a team of scientists has announced that the age of the synthetic chromosome is upon us, as a study published in Science today reveals how the group was able to construct a yeast chromosome from scratch — an experiment that allowed the team to make fully functional "designer yeast". ...

Major announcement coming...
...That much is clear, from this press release: on Monday at noon Eastern time, astronomers will “announce a major discovery.” No evidence from that page what the discovery actually is. But if you’re friends with a lot of cosmologists on Facebook/Twitter (or if you just read the Guardian), you’ve heard the rumor: the BICEP2 experiment has purportedly detected signs of gravitational waves in the polarization of the cosmic microwave background radiation. If it’s true (and the result holds up), it will be an enormously important clue about what happened at the very earliest moments of the Big Bang.

120 computer-generated papers found/withdrawn
"Two science publishers have withdrawn more than 120 papers after a researcher in France identified them as computer-generated. According to Nature News, 16 fraudulent papers appeared in publications from Germany-based Springer, and more than 100 were published by the New York-based Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). The papers were flagged by computer scientist Cyril Labbé, of Joseph Fourier University in Grenoble, France. They were created using software called #SCIgen, which was invented by MIT researchers in 2005 to prove how easy it is to publish nonsense papers in conference proceedings. Labbé developed a way to identify the papers by recognizing common words that SCIgen uses, as described in a 2012 study...."

Non-human mathematics: If we can't check the proof, is it valid?
"Paul #Erdős in the 1930s: he imagined an infinite sequence of numbers containing nothing but +1s and -1s, and he wanted to see the sequence's capacity to contain internal patterns. He came up with a way of measuring this by cutting the infinite sequence at a point and creating smaller subsequences within it (such as considering only every third or fourth number)."
Erdős' main hypothesis was that a discrepancy of any value can always be found, but he was never able to prove it. Now a computer has solved it, but "It raises the question of non-human mathematics: if a proof can only be checked with a computer, can it be accepted as true by humans?"

"From matching wings on butterflies to the repeating six-point pattern of snowflakes, symmetries echo through nature, even down to the smallest building blocks of matter. Since the discovery of quarks, the building blocks of protons and neutrons, physicists have been exploiting those symmetries to study quarks’ intrinsic properties and to uncover what those properties can reveal about the physical laws that govern them."
