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 20:14:53415304682CC G+

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.

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 22:39:3139967163160CC G+

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 02:59:31420544084CC G+

Chris Mallory17,861Just 150 PeopleBecause it's saturday, here's a random circle share that consists of most of my favorite people on G+. In here are people of all sorts: people whom I personally enjoy engaging with, people whose content I believe to be interesting, people whom I can call friends, and people that don't know that I exist but make interesting posts anyway. It is certain that I've probably accidentally excluded some people - if so, my apologies! I've also purposefully excluded a handful of people such as real life friends, as well as +Miss M since she doesn't like being in my circles. Thanks for being cool, guys :)2012-12-08 22:45:1915029017CC G+
Peter Smalley (Merkabah)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 17:29:545015211CC G+
Paul Christen0To 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 13:15:584135110CC G+

NYC Etiquette

I'm married to a New Yorker who attended NYU. 

Even though having a Kiddo with special needs prevents going on vacation and traveling to the City when we visit relatives, these are good tips to know, so I'm storing them for future reference in case I need them.

And I thought I'd share them just in case you might be traveling to New York City :-)

This is full of wonderful tips and advice:


And a shout out to +Deborah Berebichez  for sharing the post in my stream.

Hold The Phone

I have the students in my class do a number of activities to help them learn about the behavior and development of children.  During class discussions, more recently, students have been bringing up the notion that adults, even in the presence of their kids, seem technology obsessed.  This short post from MPR discusses that topic:

Greek Easter

Easter eggs are dyed one color only: blood red

Someone from my hometown shared this older post (written by Rita Wilson) on another social network.  It explains a little about "Greek Easter," and it brought back a lot of memories:

Perhaps tomorrow I'll challenge a guest to an "egg duel" and see whose egg survives when the two are smashed into one another because there can be only one

Hope everyone has a great weekend :-)

Not a Peep or the Bunny Gets it

Today, I set out to replicate +Diane Schmidt 's Easter Toffee Recipe.  This recipe involves butter, sugar, and saltine crackers as a base, and then white chocolate chips, grass, and jelly beans as a decorative topping.  You can view the details of the recipe here: https://plus.google.com/101994221435608343379/posts/8r3wSxrb3rH

Unfortunately, due to a recent fall on the ice while I was walking back to my office after teaching my class (yes, it snows in April in Minnesota), I have been recovering at home for the past two days.  I bake when I'm bored and restless, so I did not have the necessary materials to directly replicate the recipe above.

No saltines, no white sugar (what?  I've been baking a lot!), and no eatable grass

So I layered a jelly roll pan with Chessman cookies...but I ran out, so I then had touse ... more »

Buster Eyes His Basket

Throw Back Thursday tbt was yesterday, but today is fido Friday, and this weekend many people will be celebrating Easter. 

I was looking through some old photos of my beloved Rhodesian Ridge(less)back, and I found this one and thought I would share it.  Buster looks so young!  Hard to believe he's almost 11.

So, happy throwback Thursday (or rather FRIDAY), happy fido Friday, and happy candy and treat-eating :-)

Peeps Research

By now, most people have seen the classic peeps research page here:


One of my favorite undergraduate research assistants shared that site with me well over a decade and a half ago when it first came out (Thanks, Peggy).  I even did a replication of one of the studies for a class I was teaching and it negatively impacted the microwave I had borrowed (as an important safety tip, you want to watch peeps carefully if you pop them in the microwave on high for any extended period of time).

This gem, was sent to me a while back, and I was reminded of it again when I read something in one of the comments to a post in my stream:

So, enjoy these marshmallows in any way you'd like.

Did It Confirm Our Hypothesis?

My teaching apprentice and I are guiding a group of undergraduates through the exciting world of research methods.  In the class, we talk a bit about publication practices, replication in psychology, and what happens when a researcher finds vs. does not find evidence to support the experimental hypothesis.  

That last part of our lecture from Wednesday is so so nicely summarized in Jorge Cham's phd comic posted earlier in the week.

Art from Turing patterns

Art generated by digitally modeling the simple rules of Turing patterns. Many examples look remarkably like psychedelic versions of familiar components of biological systems.

Fish Friday?

Fish Fry Fundraisers occur quite frequently in the Midwest this time of year.  And during lent in some parts of the U.S., many people even refer to Friday as "fish Friday."  As a vegetarian with a sea food allergy, I prefer my fish swimming around in an aquarium. 

That said, I went to the dentist today and snapped a picture of my kiddo's favorite fish in the tank.  Me?  I was too busy admiring the lionfish (my favorite salt water fish) to notice him.  And my husband was too busy watching the clownfish.  My kiddo, however, appreciated the irony of this fish swimming around in the tank at the dentists office.

Can you see him smiling at you?

Happy Birthday Mr. Rogers

When I was a child, I heard a phrase in Greek that translated roughly into "memory eternal."  It's used to honor someone who had died, but has also left an important legacy.

Fred Rogers is such a person.  He has left a legacy of love, friendship, and neighborly kindness.

Given some other news events today, I thought I'd share this post and the fact that it would have been Mr. Rogers' birthday today.  My kiddo celebrated being a good neighbor and his appreciation for others who help him by making cookies for the staff at his school earlier this week.  And today we shared flowers with our neighbors.

There are people in this world who trust in the wrong person or the wrong group and follow them, full of hateful thoughts and ideas.  But let's not focus on that.

Corporate Cosmos

Who are we to say whether black holes really exists?

That question is tackled quite artfully in this cartoon.

I have been seeing Jen Sorensen's clever Cosmos cartoon everywhere, and (as someone who teaches courses in science, research methods, and critical thinking) also had to share it.

Replication!!!  Science!!!

Replication???  Science???

In the very near future, I am going to be introducing the undergraduates in my research methods class to the concept of replication.  We will discuss, quite possible for the first and only time in their academic careers direct vs. conceptual replication in psychology.

When I have to cover something like this, I try to get a little create to help them connect the concept with memorable examples.  Fortunately, I have collected some great examples that are also amusing ones, courtesy of some creative and quirky people.

And that leads me to the controversy associated with The Five Second Rule

Not only in the time of Google searches are titles important for #acwri . Think about alternative titles, check if the title's words appear in the abstract and chapter headings, experiment with narative titles or at least try to include narrative cues that hint to outcomes.
