Anyone that receives the message is inside the circle. Feel free to add everyone that is in this circle among your followers and to include the circle among yours; it's worth it.Here are the rules of the circle:1. Plus the circle and include me in your circle if you haven't so yet.2. Share the circle and comment to ask for inclusion in the next one.In between, for those that are interested in #business   #internationalization  and/or generally #onlinemarketing , I kindly invite you to check my series of my #onlinemarketingtips  on my coming soon website at http://notjustwebmarketing.com/. Enjoy your day and for those that are in Europe an love football, I wish you a nice Final Champions League watch.2014-05-24 15:39:51500423143

Fraser Cain824,747Super Science Circle for October, 2013I know it's been a while, so it's time for a new Super Science Circle - the October 2013 edition.In case you weren't aware, the Super Science Circle is a list of more than 400 people who are actively engaged on Google+ and regularly post about science and education. We've got journalists, scientists, even a few astronauts. The Super Science Circle should be your best response to anyone who tells you that Google+ is just a ghost town. If you love science, this circle will deliver the goods.If you know anyone who actively posts about science, please let me know and I'll add them to the list.2013-10-04 20:14:53415304682

Fraser Cain798,034Super Science Circle, July 2013 EditionNeed more science in your streams? Want to convince a friend that Google+ is a thriving place of science and rational thinking? Then import my Super Science Circle and be amazed at the awesomeness.PLEASE RESHARE THIS CIRCLE... FOR SCIENCE!Every single person in this circle is active on Google+ and regularly contributes high quality posts about science. You've got my personal guarantee.As always, I recommend you import this group into a temporary circle and look for people who match your interests. Then pull them over into more permanent locations in your circles. Or just wait for me to give you an update next month.If you want to be included in this circle, just make a post in the comments and I'll check out your profile.I'm looking for people who:1. Are active on Google+ (but not too active)2. Regularly post about science3. Provide context and additional information, and not just bare links or annoying memes.2013-07-16 18:35:56415255987

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 19:26:51456348088
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.

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 22:39:3139967163160

Nicole Gugliucci19,829UPDATED First Ladies of Science CircleRemember that whole thing that happened a while ago when +Pamela Gay realized she was the only lady on the Science & Nature Suggested Users List? 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? Let me know in the comments! 2013-02-27 04:41:0515610312
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 02:59:31420544084

More 3D prints of viruses. These prints are golf-ball size (5cm in diameter) and show an Astrovirus (left) and Adenovirus (right). The size of virus models are 1.6 and 0.5 million times (respectively) their actual size.

The Return of the Super Science Circle

Okay, 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___Add this circle if you want science in your Google+ stream!

"An oozing, blob engulfs Tokyo. Mindlessly, it rapidly spreads, overcoming the surrounding cities in less than a day. Although this sounds like the plot of a science fiction movie, in another example of life being stranger than fiction, it was actually part of an experiment conducted back in 2009. Fortunately for the citizens of the great Japanese metropolis, Tokyo was represented by a miniature model on an agar plate. Further, the slimy blob was not the creation of some comic book super-villain, but in fact a species of slime mould, Physarum polycephalum."

This is important. 

Plant Viruses DO NOT Infect Mammals
This paper was brought to my attention by Prof. Gary Foster (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/biology/people/gary-d-foster/overview.html) on Twitter. The research group behind it claimed Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV) can infect mice lungs. That's what they claimed but that's not what their study actually showed. There are plenty of reasons to not smoke, but being infected with a plant virus is certainly NOT one of them.

Firstly, I must point out that TMV is an extremely stable virus (see the links at the bottom of this post). It can persist in the environment for a very long time and stay infective (to mostly solanaceous plants). When placed in storage at 4°C/40°F, they can remain infectious (to mostly solanaceous plants) after 50 years. And that's how they spread - they are able to persist in the environment and contaminate anything which may come into contact with a host plant. To be able to do that, it must be very stable and not easily altered or destroyed by anything going on around it.

What this research group basically did can be summed up with this:
"Eh, so we got some TMV, stuck 'em in the lungs of some mice, and guess what? When we dissected the mice later, we found TMV in their lungs! Isn't that odd?"

No. As mentioned above, TMV is extremely stable and persistent in the environment. If you stick TMV in the lungs of mice, of course you are going to find TMV in there! Furthermore, the virus did not activate, nor did it infect the mice's cells. The mice with TMV in their lungs showed an immune reaction, but that would happen even if it was some non-biological particulate matter.

After they sacrificed the mice, they mashed up their lungs (which had TMV in them) and dabbed the resulting fluid on some tobacco plant and what do you know, the plants developed a viral infection! Which only goes to show how stable TMV actually is - NOT that the virus infected mice lungs.

Here's the take home message: Plant viruses are plant viruses and they CANNOT infect mammals, or even just animals in general - plants and animals are simply too biologically different for that to happen. 

Here are some reference on the stability (and other aspects) of TMV:

"In a major leap forward in this enterprise, today a European planet-hunting team announced their discovery of an alien world about the same mass as Earth. This alone would be noteworthy, for of all the “exoplanets” now known beyond our solar system, only a very few, and very recently, have been shown to at all resemble our own. But there is more to the story. This particular exoplanet resides in a three-day orbit around the dusky orange star Alpha Centauri B, a member of the Sun’s closest neighboring stellar system. There are two other stars in the system as well, the yellow Sun-like star Alpha Centauri A and the red dwarf star Proxima Centauri."

Louise wrote a nice summary about our recent school microscopy workshop at Oxford Brookes University. 

Coloured SEM image showing the surface of Iris pollen. 

Oxford Brookes hosted a group of students from the Oxford Academy this morning. Part of their visit involved looking at flowers, the reproductive organs in the flowers and pollen using light microscopy. This was followed by demonstrations on our research microscopes,  +Anne Osterrieder showing them the confocal laser scanning microscopes while I demonstrated electron microscopy. this image was taken during the session and was coloured this afternoon. 

One thing I enjoy about talking to and showing younger students the microscopes is the interesting questions we end up getting asked, as well as the remarkable tangents the conversations are likely to take. Ghosts was one such unexpected topic, in between talking about human parasites, cells in the eye and live images from the microscopes showing pollen. Certainly an interesting morning. :)___Louise wrote a nice summary about our recent school microscopy workshop at Oxford Brookes University.
