Richard Green52,056Engagers Showcase Circle, January 9, 2014If you received a notification, it means that you are included in my Engagers Showcase Circle. “Showcase” means that you are invited to leave a comment (on the original post) with a link to one of your own posts, which ideally should be one of your best recent posts.This circle consists of people who have engaged with one of my recent posts in the form of +1s, comments and reshares. I waited too long to share the circle, so I ran out of room.

Jens „Google Plus Yoda“ Graikowski10,635Last share of the F1 circle (Part one) ...As I have completely changed my circle system and am working exclusively with my "Interaction Ladder" (http://bit.ly/VfSrjs) for incoming and my "Targeted Circles" (http://bit.ly/XSXBoR) for outgoing traffic I have decided to delete even my last themed circle, the #FormulaOne  circle.I believe that creating a #Formula1  community via a circle is impractical and cumbersome. A #GooglePlusPage  is better suited for this endeavour, so if you want to be part of a large #F1 community I recommend you try some of the pages around, like +F1 Circle (the page that belongs to this circle) or +Formula 1 Fans. I will share this circle in two parts (One of the reason that it is cumbersome. You can't share circles larger than 500) so it doesn't get lost for those who are still interested in it. I will delete it from my circles afterwards.This is part one with F1 aficionados from A to L. The M to Z part will follow in a second.Don't get me wrong! I'll keep on posting about the F1 and I'll do so publicly. You can still all read my Formula 1 posts. If you'd like to be notified of them I'll gladly add you to my Formula 1 targeted circle. Just +1 the first comment underneath this post!I hope we'll all enjoy the last race of the season 2012 and am looking forward to see you all again in 2013.And now go and share this circle all over the place, will ya!Greez,+Jens Graikowski ***************************************************************** #jgformula12012-11-22 23:02:21367418
Max Huijgen27,573Will Red Bull be allowed to race this afternoon? FIA finds fault with their engine mapping suggesting that Red Bull uses illegal torque maps. Technical delegate Jo Bauer put forward his findings after Saturday's qualifying session, claiming that both cars are in breach of the regulations.The effect of the strange looking torque maps is that maximum power is not delivered in the mid RPM ranges suggesting that the exhaust flow is used to influence the aerodynamics. Strictly forbidden after last years 'exhaust-blown diffuser' exploit of the rules. Sanctions could range from grid penalties to exclusion of this race!find below the first F1 circle; I will share the second one in a minute2012-07-22 10:39:5350021216

Max Huijgen20,565Will Rob Smedley start driving the Ferrari himself? An F1 circle of fans!A few weeks ago I started collecting people who are real fans of F1. Now crowd sourcing has the disadvantage that there are always people who want to be in a circle no matter the subject. I have taken my time to go through comments and posts all over G+ and came up with the following hard core fans. Now I´m pretty sure there must be much more and I will gladly add you if you have a clue about the post titlle :)Now, there is already a +F1 Circle and +Jens Graikowski and +Brian Titus have been curating this. Last year +Kol Tregaskes and I made the same effort. The goal is of course to get to one circle to rule them all ;)It makes no sense at all to have fragmented circles so I checked mine against the existing ones and found 98 new names compared to the latest shard one, so that´s good news.Before I merge I want to be sure we have as many people who really love #F1 as possible and avoid taking on board too many people who just want to be in. If you already have the latest circle you can just add this one to it to win the 98 new ones. What I hope for however is that we will find even more F1 fans thanks to this post and that I can share an even larger one next time. So if you´re in it and feel others are forgotten please mention them. Oh, and if you don´t want to be notified just say so, and I make sure someone else can be on the selected list for notifications.2012-04-14 14:56:1417056622

Good job he's got a few quid or he might have been found guilty of paying a lot of money to receive a favourable outcome.

Under German law defendants can in certain circumstances "buy" termination of a trial.

The legal proviso exists in order to ease the burden on the courts and to deal with cases where reaching a judgment could prove difficult.

An experienced lawyer quoted by the Spiegelonline news website, Franz Bielefeld, said the proviso, known as Paragraph 153a, was not just applicable to commercial trials, but could be invoked throughout the court system.

It would mean that Mr Ecclestone would not be pronounced either guilty or innocent.

It's been a while since I've been to Wintersett (Okay, Anglers Country Park if you insist). It had a nice sunset waiting for me. I think it had missed me.

Got a puncture on the way but I'm getting bloody organised at sorting 'em these days. 'Bout time I suppose.

Geese are the rowdy lot of the neighbourhood, just as I was leaving dozens of them came into land honking like a gang of belligerent five year olds on their new tricycles. A couple of swans looked up with a slightly bored twinkle of disdain in their eyes as the lake prepared to settle down for another night.

Here's another one. (You just wouldn't let it lie!)

Okay, so you'd expect some sour grapes from some people, and there's inevitably going to be some loony theories kicking about.

But I'm having a hard time deciphering this one.

The film, from Sky News, shows what appear to be bundled "as if sorted" ballot papers, or do they bundle them before they sort them? That wouldn't make sense to me but it's a possibility. I didn't watch it, so I don't know.

The time displayed is 00.31. And the video says "Live". I guess Sky might have been replaying old footage but displaying a "Live" tag meaning they were covering the election live. Pretty unprofessional although not impossible. I feel like I'm clutching at straws here though.

At 00.31, was the counting well under way, or was there still bundles waiting to be... more »

At 00.31, was the counting well under way, or was there still bundles waiting to be counted?

I suppose one of the things that gets to me is the archaic way that this process works. A pencil mark on a piece of paper handled by various human beings at different times.

I can see plenty of opportunities for things to go wrong.

In this day and age we have the technology now to vote on policy. Not for a party or a person. We already entrust that technology with our money and other various important bits of data.

No one believes that one person or party encompasses all our viewpoints.

And yet here we are, still putting our little exes on paper, in pencil, and handing it over to others.

Maybe there isn't anything dodgy that's gone off in this referendum.

But there's still a better way.

Even though I pretty much knew most of the outcome, I found this to be a gripping documentary about the 2002 failed coup against Hugo Chavez.

It does contain some bloody scenes and some bad language.

Well, that's it for today, I'm thirty miles out, five more than last time, ten by the time I get home. Two and half hours to get here. It's a windy one, hopefully it won't all be in my face on the way back. Fortunately with tracks like these you're sheltered a lot.

My mud guard's working well, I attached it to my down tube so it didn't block my light. Quite pleased with that idea ;)

Not sure where the rest of this track goes but it's definitely better than sharing the road with cars. I don't even like sharing the road with cars when I'm in a car, never mind on my push bike.

Hopefully these pics will upload. Not that they're exciting or anything ;)

You know when you complain about people posting "selfies" or pictures of their dinner, sunsets, or their cats, or some political diatribe, or whatever.

They're just trying to connect.

You shouldn't berate them for it.

After half a bottle of Grants I realise this ;)

This is pretty good stuff. Well if you're into space exploration.

The Cannae Drive. I was hoping it was gonna be named in tribute to Scotty (she cannae take it captain!) but I think it's a actually place.

One of the problems with space exploration is Newton's law about every action having an equal and opposite reaction. Meaning in space you've got to expel something to propel something. Which means you need loads of fuel to get about and especially manoeuvre.

To be honest I suppose getting about's not that bad, once you're going you more or less keep going, but changing course needs propulsion. In traditional cases of space exploration that's expulsion. And then you end up running out of fuel.

So effectively exploring the universe, or even somewhere slightly more local has always been the stuff of science fiction.

These will probably take forever to load, especially as I don't seem to have much connection. Just been stung by a bee, well maybe twenty minutes ago. At first I thought it was marginally worse than being nettled but I've just had a big throbbing ache in my wrist. It's probably psychosomatic, I'll see how it goes.

25 miles out, time to turn around and head back.

Bolivian golden bat revealed as 'new species'

Myotis midastactus had previously been classified as another bat found in South America called Myotis simus.

But examination of a collection of museum specimens suggested the existence of a different species, thought to live only in Bolivia.

Its most distinctive characteristic is its golden-yellow, very short and woolly fur.

This bright colouration - which is unique among New World Myotis species - earned the bat its new name midastactus, after the Greek legend of King Midas and his golden touch.

There are over 100 species of Myotis - or mouse-eared bats - in the world.

Bolivian golden bat revealed as 'new species'

Myotis midastactus had previously been classified as another bat found in South America called Myotis simus.

But examination of a collection of museum specimens suggested the existence of a different species, thought to live only in Bolivia.

Its most distinctive characteristic is its golden-yellow, very short and woolly fur.

Trans Pennine Trail is a very nice ride. I've never been this far on it, I always went a different way. But it's almost all flat. Definitely want to check it out further.

But I best be getting back. They mostly come out at night.

Went #cycling down the Calder and canal to Castleford. Some parts of it are really nice, even tarmacced, other parts are gravelled but it's still good going. And then you get to the overgrown brambles and nettles bits. Big muddy puddles and almost impassable jungle like trails.

I could do to look at it again, see if I can find some nice detours 'cos most of it was a good ride.

Went for a ride on the new bike. Out past Royston, back through Nostel Priory and Wintersett.

It seems to be easier when you're going, but it's less stable at low speeds over trickier bits. Still, I think I prefer it as I don't often do many tricky bits these days.

I went to +Halfords yesterday for a new bike. Apparently they won't sell one to you unless you give them your house address. They weren't delivering it, I had to wait to pick it up on Saturday.

In the end, because they wanted my address, I decided to leave it. That was six hundred quid they missed out on but it won't make too much of a dent in their profits.

That just confuses me though. It happened the other month at +Currys PC World. I wanted a vacuum cleaner. They wanted my address. There's no reason for it, they're not gonna come round and hoover up are they.

Anyway, their loss, my gain. I went to a local bike shop, they gave me a nice discount, chucked in some free climbing bars too. Spent £180 quid less on something similar.

Just psyching up to go for a spin.

Went to see the Tour. Some chance. It was jam packed. Got into Holmfirth and that was it. Everything closed off, everyone standing about. Bloody French!

So I headed off up another road. Nice day. Took a lot of pics but didn't get any of the Tour.

Found a graph on my sports tracker. I find Holme Moss bizarrely huge compared to something like Haigh Hill (the last peak) which I'm forever whining on about.

The video of the descent lasts forever, so I wouldn't bother watching it, but it's there for posterity. The Tour de France is coming up it next month (coincidentally they've finally done a lovely job of the road into Holmfirth).

If you watch the video in reverse and slow it down somewhat it'll give you an idea. I could have filmed going up I suppose but my slowest mile was 18:46 so it would have been even more boring. Incidentally the record for getting up it is something like six and a half minutes. It nearly took me that to get down it.

Okay I had the brakes on a lot or I would have been flying over the moors and breaking my neck. And you do get a lot of boy racers going up and down it testing out the handling of their pride and joys, so imminent death potentially lurks around every corner.

I managed to dodge most of the rain even though there were some ominous looking black clouds on the way up. On one of the pictures you can see the showers in the distance.

I think that's my third weekend of doing it and doesn't seem to be getting easier.___

Finally made it. It took me just over four hours to do nearly forty miles. That's not a very good average speed, but you try lugging my blubber up an 11% gradient. And the bike's not light either!

It's been something like 22 years since I last managed it.

Went out last night and whupped my previous best time by over a minute (14.5 mph avg). The conditions were good. I put so much effort in I didn't have time to take anything in, except the odd fly here and there. Nearly choked on one just before mile twelve. That, and my chain coming off, meant I missed my target by twelve seconds.

So tonight I just went for a nice steady one and took loads of pics. I mean loads and loads.

I'm feeling really good, energy wise. My weight's up, dunno what that's about, but so are my times so I'm not too bothered.

The best thing about taking it easy is when you get to one of those hills that you normally dread and you just sail up it 'cos you've loads of spare energy.

This update seems pretty pointless btw. Have they added or improved anything?

Bit off more than I could chew. Actually I didn't bite anything off, not since last night and that was my big mistake.

When I set out on today's bike ride, on my eternal quest to conquer Holme Moss, I could tell I had no energy, I was three minutes behind my twenty minute marker, but I carried on. It was too nice a day and I'd promised myself to go that little bit further than last time.

I eventually managed it, just over four hours and just under thirty eight miles. I had to have a little lay down at the bottom of the last hill (Haigh), but when I finally got home I'd dropped six pounds. Not too bad for a day's work.

I'm gonna have to sort something out with my sports tracker app. It crashed again while taking pics. Lost 37 minutes of data. I've turned the auto back up off for now, see if that helps next time.

I've found it hard to get motivated this week. I've promised myself I'll go out Saturday to Wednesday as punishment for being lazy. Yeah right, we'll see how that works out.

It's a nice evening here, I should have stopped out longer.

The two sides of technology.

On the one hand we can blow people's arms and legs off from the safety of another country, but on the other we can replace them and give people their independence back.

I hate the first use but love the second. In this year's world cup the first kick of a ball is planned to be taken by a paraplegic. They'll get out of their wheel chair wearing robotic legs and kick a ball.

What more reward do you need than to be responsible for hearing someone say "I've fed myself for the first time in 26 years"?

For one, they don't have enough control or influence of wealth. Yeah, that thing called money that we all lust after that buys us all more freedom, or buys us the latest piece of technology that someone around the other side of the world has slaved long hours for little reward so we can all talk about insignificant little things whilst pretending we're not collectively to blame for the actions of our democratically elected scumbags.

takes a breath

Annnd two, hardly anyone will vote for them because they don't think they'll get in. So they'll vote for the lesser of two evils.

I'd never be able to look myself in the eye again though. So Green it is.

When you're cycling about it's customary to acknowledge other cyclists. Dude on a racer "Aye up!" Dude on a mountain bike "Alright mate!" It's all about brotherly love. Getting on with your fellow pedal pushers. If need be we help each other out with tools and patches. But not BMXs. I look the other way.

This chippy derelict shed is at the bottom of Holme Moss. I remember, a long time ago, calling in whilst out on a ride. I was starving, much like today, but it was a big mistake. It takes all your energy from you to digest it.

No breakfast today, three hours or so on the bike. The idea is to burn extra fat. But it was torture, almost every pub I went past smelled delicious. And the emergency tenner in my saddle bag was screaming out "Spend me! Spend me!"

The video's long. Must be three and half minutes of going down hill. I bet you can get over forty mph easy. I had my brakes on a fair bit 'cos I didn't want my phone bailing out like it usually does. But what a hill, I have to come back up the bloody thing on the way back.___

The world’s newest mineral is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before

It’s purple and pretty and composed of cube-like crystals just 0.5 mm in size.

But what really makes putnisite, the world’s newest mineral, truly unique is that nothing like it has ever been discovered before.

“Most minerals belong to a family or small group of related minerals, or if they aren’t related to other minerals they often are to a synthetic compound, but putnisite is completely unique and unrelated to anything,” said Dr. Peter Elliott, lead author of a new study detailing the discovery in Mineralogical Magazine.

It’s a rare combination of strontium, calcium, chromium, sulphur, carbon, oxygen and hydrogen that’s completely distinct from any of the other 4,000 known minerals in the world.

I've been going up Emley Moor a fair bit recently. It's a big hill for a fat old bloke like me.

It hasn't really felt that bad, although tonight, after a bag of crisps, two slices of bread, a box of Pringles and a pint of banana milkshake, it didn't feel that good either.

But anyway, what's that new Nexus camera all about. Mind of its bloody own or what.
