Daniel Mihai Popescu61,295This circle is called Survivors!  It is dedicated to all of you :)I waited to fill it a little more with some new faces :)I hope you are notified, if not, nothing changes.Just a "+1" is more than enough (and I speak here for the members) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  It is an homage to you, so there's no need to share it, there are no conditions. If I forgot any of you, please forgive me and tell me, instead of uncircle me without notice :)I never was in "follow me and I'll follow you back" game, not here, nor on Twitter, where people are more liberal :)I'm out of the sharing circles game, as most of you already have noticed, and it's up to anyone to do whatever he/she/it likes with that :) I thank to any of you who kept in their public shared circles the time I have been absent (there was a very motivated reason for it), and I'm absolutely passive about the people who took me out of their public circles, considering they have not an immediate benefit from that. Oh, and I'm very glad because some circle spammers have unfollowed me. I do not really deserve their company :)Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends!2014-10-18 18:08:10469383955

Dr. John Cassone12,100Dr. John's Selectgood content and engagementThese are people I follow, engage with, and suggest for my new followers who want quality people in their stream. This circle changes each time I share it based on how people are engaging and sharing content.This is not a megacircle.People are only added based on good content or my experience engaging with them.Best way to sort and manage your stream:1. add new circle2. follow it in your stream separately 3. engage with those that interest you (good content/interaction)4. cherry pick those you like and make your own circles5. let go of the rest (or put them in a circle that's dialed down on your stream)If you add too many people too often then you will not build meaningful connections which is the point here.Circle Management Basics:1. Circles control who you follow:►   I might feel like reading the news so I have a news channel circle. I don't build relationships with these pages but follow them and share content when interesting. This way I can completely control my stream based on my mood.2. Circles control who your share to: ►   Share to your interests: I like martial arts but most of my followers do not. By collecting a circle of others that like martial arts I can share specifically to those interested in this topic and not bore anyone.►  I have also collected an "inner circle" of g-peeps that I have gotten to know and share more person pics and info with.3. Control your stream flow:►   When you click on a specific circle in your stream you can adjust how much the posts from that circle appear in your "everything" stream. ►   Organize people based on flow: I have three main circles called 1, 2, and 3. I have the amount of flow dialed in priority (circle 1 is high, 2 is medium, and 3 is low).

Dr. John Cassone11,938Dr. John's August Selectgood content and engagementThese are people I follow, engage with, and suggest for my new followers who want quality people in their stream. I've also included some of my new engagers.This is not a megacircle. People are only added based on good content or my experience engaging with them.Best way to sort and manage your stream:1. add new circle2. follow it in your stream separately 3. engage with those that interest you (good content/interaction)4. cherry pick those you like and make your own circles5. let go of the rest (or put them in a circle that's dialed down on your stream)If you add too many people too often then you will not build meaningful connections which is the point here.Circle Management Basics:1. Circles control who you follow:> I might feel like reading the news so I have a news channel circle. I don't build relationships with these pages but follow them and share content when interesting. This way I can completely control my stream based on my mood.2. Circles control who your share to: > Share to your interests: I like martial arts but most of my followers do not. By collecting a circle of others that like martial arts I can share specifically to those interested in this topic and not bore anyone.> I have also collected an "inner circle" of g-peeps that I have gotten to know and share more person pics and info with.3. Control your stream flow:> When you click on a specific circle in your stream you can adjust how much the posts from that circle appear in your "everything" stream. > Organize people based on flow: I have three main circles called 1, 2, and 3. I have the amount of flow dialed in priority (circle 1 is high, 2 is medium, and 3 is low). I move people between circles based on the progression of our relationship. > Notify circle: I have another circle with people that I don't want to miss a single post from. This circle is set to notify me whenever someone from it posts. This is a great way to focus on building a relationship with specific people.Happy Plussing :)2014-08-07 14:37:331779413

Imagine living 10 years more than your expected lifespan, feeling a few decades younger than your actual age, and having the mental and physical agility of someone half your age. Who wouldn’t want that? There is increasing evidence that our current biomedical science is capable of extending human life by approximately 10 years. And many companies are swarming to focus on this magic potion. When GlaxoSmithKline shelled out close to $720 million on Sirtris Pharmaceuticals, which said its drug could combat aging, the game was on. Even though this acquisition failed miserably, it started a race to create an anti-aging drug by large pharmaceuticals and young biotech companies like Google’s Calico. Calico has partnered with another pharma giant, AbbVie ABBV +0.51%, and is on a mission to reverse engineer the biology that controls lifespan and allow humans to prolong healthy lives with its $500 millioninv... more »

21C Literacies: Student centricity

One of the biggest take-aways from my decades in executive leadership is just how unprepared people are for the new workplace - a workplace that expects everyone to figure out their own changing roles and how best to contribute and has no patience for employees who merely sit around, wait to be told what to do, and then do as they're told and no more.

I am frightened by how badly our educational system serves children most of the time even as I am optimistic about the slow shift I am seeing to real, honest student-centered learning. This shift is profound, and generally relies on technology (because its the best way to make it affordable at scale) but is not the same as a technology implementation. In fact, implementing technology in a school without the culture shift to student centered learning is to miss an opportunity so huge that it feels like malpractice.

I wrote about this culture shift for the One to One Institute What do you think? Does technology without culture change even make sense? http://www.one-to-oneinstitute.org/…/Bjerede,Marie-_Leade…___21C Literacies: Student centricity

Visual Storytelling: Hello, we are already found

One of the things I like the most with you +Teodora Petkova is how you manage to weave images and words together in new ways.

Strange days have found me

I guess these weeks I had too much of a search outside rather than within. :) Hence interesting things began to find me, wave at me, and call me back, saying Hello, we are already found, use us to step forward :)
 
Creative genius isn’t the product of conforming to common standards of excellence but of finding one’s element.

Good Morning Dear Digital Enactivists

Embedded Knowledge

Through most of our history, we’ve embedded our knowledge in our minds and bodies through various types of human memory. The invention of symbols and writing eventually gave us a way to embed that knowledge into something else. In a way, our history is a history of that ‘something else.’

Knowledge management experts like to divide knowledge into two categories: tacit knowledge and explicit knowledge. Tacit knowledge is experience-based knowledge – things we know, but don’t really know how we know – like riding a bike, speaking a language or playing the guitar. Explicit knowledge is knowledge that is articulated. We embed explicit knowledge in written rules, procedures – and increasingly, in software. We embed tacit knowledge in memory and explicit knowledge in information systems.

We embed tacit knowledge in memory and explicit knowledge in information systems.

Though the relationship between these two forms of knowledge is complex, the story of human civilization is an accelerating conversion of implicit knowledge into explicit knowledge.

And we’re just getting started.

Working on a new piece that should be pretty interesting and it brought me back to this earlier thinking on humanity's efforts to transform tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge.

Deep Stuff: Prime Directive

The Great Filter theory says that at some point from pre-life to Type III intelligence, there’s a wall that all or nearly all attempts at life hit. There’s some stage in that long evolutionary process that is extremely unlikely or impossible for life to get beyond. That stage is The Great Filter.

 - One hope we have is that The Great Filter is behind us—we managed to surpass it, which would mean it’s extremely rare for life to make it to our level of intelligence.

 - If the Great Filter is not behind us, the one hope we have is that conditions in the universe are just recently, for the first time since the Big Bang, reaching a place that would allow intelligent life to develop. In that case, we and many other species may be on our way to super-intelligence, and it simply hasn’t happened yet. We happen to be here at the right time to become one of the first super-intelligent civilizations.

 - If we’re neither rare nor early, Group 1 thinkers conclude that The Great Filter must be in our future. This would suggest that life regularly evolves to where we are, but that something prevents life from going much further and reaching high intelligence in almost all cases—and we’re unlikely to be an exception.

Life in the Village, part 184: Toronto, Canada

via +Denis Labelle 

Why is it important to take time in silence?
+Grace Dubery talks Meditation

With a world that likes immediate gratification, meditation might not seem important. Sometimes nothing happens but frustration that you should be doing something else. It is a long haul journey, as opposed to a “right now” sensibility.

How does Grace encourage fidgety folks to stay put?

"It has to do with slowing down the practice at the end. Restorative poses can help trick the body into meditation by making the body melt. Sometimes I ask people not to leave. You have to teach people that it is important."

21C Literacies: Dialogue

#bakhtin  

Dialogue has suffered a long eclipse in the history of philosophy and the history of rhetoric but has enjoyed a rebirth in the work of Hans-Georg Gadamer, Martin Buber, and Mikhail Bakhtin. Among twentieth-century figures, Bakhtin took a special interest in the history of the dialogue form. This book explores Bakhtin’s understanding of Socratic dialogue and the notion that dialogue is not simply a way of persuading others to accept our ideas, but a way of holding ourselves, and others, accountable for all of our thoughts, words, and actions. In supporting this premise, Bakhtin challenges the traditions of argument and persuasion handed down from Plato and Aristotle, and he offers, as an alternative, a dialogical rhetoric that restructures the traditional relationship between speakers and listeners, writers and readers, as a mutual testing, contesting, and creating of ideas. The author suggests that Bakhtin’s dialogical rhetoric is not restricted to oral discourse, but is possible in any medium, including written, graphic, and digital.___21C Literacies: Dialogue

+Mani Saint-Victor  +John Hagel  

Imagine living 10 years more than your expected lifespan, feeling a few decades younger than your actual age, and having the mental and physical agility of someone half your age. Who wouldn’t want that? There is increasing evidence that our current biomedical science is capable of extending human life by approximately 10 years. And many companies are swarming to focus on this magic potion. When GlaxoSmithKline shelled out close to $720 million on Sirtris Pharmaceuticals, which said its drug could combat aging, the game was on. Even though this acquisition failed miserably, it started a race to create an anti-aging drug by large pharmaceuticals and young biotech companies like Google’s Calico. Calico has partnered with another pharma giant, AbbVie ABBV +0.51%, and is on a mission to reverse engineer the biology that controls lifespan and allow humans to prolong healthy lives with its $500 million investment into this project.





Currently, there are already over 100 drugs that have been found to combat aging. One such compound that achieved prominence in aging-related science was reservatrol. Reservatrol is the reason why many doctors encourage drinking red wine. Reservatrol activates an enzyme that is said to slow aging. Therefore, many pharmaceuticals saw this as a potential drug, like Sirtris. Although the effects of resveratrol in rodents have shown significant improvements, questions have emerged surrounding the effectiveness on humans. In recent years, another compound, rapamycin (TOR) kinase, has emerged as a key pathway that mediates life span extension.___21C Design: Life

21C Stewardship: Inclusivity

+David Amerland  is one of the servant leaders in Google+. Thankfully, this is not idle praise, but backed by both heuristics (people, story) and algorithms (platform, data) - thus avoiding the putting on piedestal, the projections...

Inclusivity, which I see as one of the core principles of networks, is still not fully understood. At the slightest provocation, we retreat into older heuristics, oriented around more silo'd institutional habits and mindsets, and sometimes also regressing further into tribal, fortifying our rationalizations with denial.

Little by little though, we are growing in awareness of the importance of the liminal - between fast and slow cognition (Kahnemann) between me and we, between institutions and networks, between 20C narratives and (let's make it so) 21C narratives informed by our best, most co-intelligent, most... more »

My Brother’s Keeper

In Genesis 4:9, Cain sarcastically asks of God one of the most frequently quoted passages in the Old Testament: “Am I my brother’s keeper?”. The question is academic. We know he is not. But it’s asking raises the implied thought: “Why should he be?”. 

There is a certain logic to the thought process that begins with the assertion “If I take care of myself and everyone else does the same, surely then things work out for everyone.” What is never quite clear from that perspective is the fact that not everyone can take care of themselves, equally and that, “taking care of oneself” can frequently, when acted upon unilaterally has a way of creating just the kind of dynamic that leads to the madness of war. Cain of course had already killed his brother by the time the question was asked. 

Charles Darwin, the very same man who managed to affront the mores of his time by reaching out with his mind and understanding that man’s place in the natural order of things lay more amongst the animals than some divine hierarchy, also posited that we have a natural tendency to be social that is framed by survival (http://goo.gl/XEykEM) and that within it there is a biologically developed, instinctive reaction against unfairness (amongst other things) and killing. 

We have a skewed perception that we are innately violent and homicidal but that may actually be a perception bias created by the lens through which we choose to look at the world: i.e. the reported images of crime and violence seen through the ever widening gaze of our media. In truth we may be possessed by tendencies to form complex social groups out of which culture (and language) arise naturally (http://goo.gl/fq2bBI) and be so adverse (http://goo.gl/GOQsOo) to crossing the line of taking someone else’s life that even in wartime we may resist it: http://goo.gl/hzM1j1. 

Soldiers have to be trained to kill: http://goo.gl/35sPdr and even then there are psychological repercussions to it: http://goo.gl/eaF7Y. Taking a life, under most circumstances leaves us questioning our own self at a fundamental level, as some very personal, open accounts clearly show: http://goo.gl/yAyvjG. 

Hopeful as this may be, when even ‘trained killers’ refuse to kill with ease, it becomes harder to reconcile with instances where a retail discount sparks off scenes that might not have looked out of place in a battlefield: http://goo.gl/roOBOC. Clearly, something does not quite add up here. Either we are pro-cooperation and peace or not. And if, in war, we can kill when our life depends on it and our training and circumstances have clearly given permission to do so and still agonize over it, then there are warring ‘factions’ within our psyche. 

We are getting, it seems, to the now familiar complexity from which stem most of our problems as a species. “Why can’t we all just get along?” Rodney King cried as he was being beaten by cops (http://goo.gl/n0gNzD). Because what is good for us in a social group governed by ethnicity, language and colour may not translate quite so easily into an expansive love for all mankind: http://goo.gl/9glYcK. 

Yet within that there is real hope. Awareness of the systems that govern our decision making, makes us capable of guiding them. Shaping them. Structuring them in ways that allow us to avoid the worst pitfalls of our behavior. Case in point the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative launched by the White House (http://goo.gl/OfE6vZ) that has succeeded in reversing some trends in particularly vulnerable ethnic groups. 

We are not out of the woods yet (both in the literal and metaphorical sense of the words. While we are clearly capable of working with each other at the human level that is common to us all, it requires overcoming our own psychological deficiencies and this is not easily done alone. 

Are we then each other’s keepers? The answer to this question has to be, what other choice do we have? When we know that alone we fall, we have to learn to stand together. And that requires the understanding that our differences need not exclude us from the group, that our faults, such as they are, have to become part of who we are as a human family. If we do that we will gain resilience and we will learn to overcome the tendencies that still keep us tied to a less than glorious past. 

This has been a deeper, and understandably disturbing, dive into a side of us that we do not easily get to examine. Yet avoiding it, does not make the issues go away. To make things easier I hope you’ve had coffee ready, donuts, croissants and chocolate ganache coated berry balls courtesy of +Craig Burton's  wife: http://goo.gl/TqirIu. Have an awesome Sunday, wherever you are.

NIST researchers have developed a new system that enables the computer-controlled autonomous assembly of individual atoms into precisely defined nanostructures on a copper surface using a scanning tunnelling microscope http://www.nist.gov/cnst/automated_atom_assembly.cfm. The system first scans the surface to determine the precise locations of the atoms available for assembly, calculates the coordinate transformations necessary to move the atoms to new locations, then instructs the STM tip to move the atoms as desired. As a possible application the group quote the production of tailored quantum states for information processing and nanophotonics.

2. Face Detection Algorithms at Human Performance Levels
Deep Sense Face Detector is a new face detection algorithm, built on a deep convolutional neural network, that is able to quickly and accurately spot human faces at any angle and orientation in an image, even when partially occluded http://www.technologyreview.com/view/535201/the-face-detection-algorithm-set-to-revolutionize-image-search/. Key applications of course include image search and robotics, particularly robotic interaction with humans. Such detection capabilities combined with ever-better face recognition capabilities provide a glimpse into the near-future capabilities we’ll have for searching for people through both personal images and surveillance footage. In related news software is being developed to determine where a video was shot based based on the scenery and ambient sound http://www.gizmag.com/video-geolocation-algorithms/36172/. 

3. First Human Epigenome Map
A map of the human epigenome has been generated for the first time, and in the process creating a valuable tool that embodies genomic epigenetic changes, their regulatory effects, and comparisons across a wide range of cell and tissue samples http://newsoffice.mit.edu/2015/human-epigenome-map-0218. The data generated involved 150 billion sequencing reads and 3,174-fold coverage of the human genome and relied heavily on machine-learning algorithms to translate these massive datasets. The goal here is to understand the dynamic epigenetic code and how it might be manipulated; how it relates to cell and tissue specialisation and gives rise to various traits. 

4. Very Long Term Data Storage via DNA Encoding
Digital data can typically be encoded into DNA for short term applications. But by taking the digitally encoded DNA strands and encapsulating them in silica glass spheres measuring 150 nm researchers created a fossilised storage medium able to potentially preserve the digital information for a million years or more https://www.ethz.ch/en/news-and-events/eth-news/news/2015/02/data-storage-for-eternity.html. The information is retrieved by breaking down the glass with fluorine chemistry and sequencing the DNA found within, but the key enabling development was the addition and use of error-correction codes to handle the inevitable errors that are present. The proof-of-concept successfully stored and retrieved the Switzerland Federal Charter and an Archimedes text. 

5. UberBlox: Modular Components for Tools and Devices
UberBlox is a new modular construction set and prototyping system with a standard connection and locking mechanism between units and a variety of control systems for computer enabled automation of a wide variety of tools and devices http://www.gizmag.com/uberblox-modular-construction-set-lego-maker/36006/. UberBlox can be assembled into a range of devices including 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC millers and routers, manipulator arms, rovers, robots, and all compatible with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and other systems. Modularity enables familiar standards, ease of use, lower costs, and faster evolution of designs; we just need to reach the point of creating something like an UberBlox that can create more UberBoxes.

6. Applications for Opening the Blood Brain Barrier with Ultrasound
Magnetic resonance imaging has previously been used to guide focused ultrasound to temporarily open the blood brain barrier to allow desired drugs to pass through. In a recent study this technique was used on the hippocampus of animal models of Alzheimers disease, and was found to assist with the reduction of plaques, increase neuronal plasticity, and improve cognition and spatial learning, and all without tissue damage or behavioural changes http://www.nibib.nih.gov/news-events/newsroom/attacking-alzheimer%E2%80%99s-ultrasound. Early days but with such a relatively simple technique and promising animal results I’m thinking human tests will be good to see. 

7. Limpet Teeth: New Strongest Natural Material
Limpet teeth are made of geothite and recent tests suggest the fibrous structure of this material in limpet teeth may be the strongest known natural material http://www.port.ac.uk/uopnews/2015/02/18/scientists-find-strongest-natural-material/. Interestingly the strength of the limpet teeth was found to be somewhat scale-invariant, with the same relative strength over different length scales - a counter-intuitive finding given larger structures tend to have more defects and so less relative strength. Finding a synthetic process to mimic the fabrication of this material on a large scale would have obvious applications across a wide range of areas. 

8. Measuring Synaptic Transmission in Live Animals
For the first time the synaptic transmission between neurons in live animals has been recorded with the aid of optogenetics http://actu.epfl.ch/news/controlling-brain-cells-with-light/. Using optogenetically engineered mice that produce neurons sensitive to certain wavelengths of light, researchers activated a subset of neurons in the sensory cortex with flashes of blue light while simultaneously using implanted microelectrodes to record electrical signals in neighbouring neurons, and used this to directly observe the activation of one neuron from another. Developing this technique the group showed that synaptic transmission differs depending on the type of neuron receiving the signal, and ultimately hope this can be used to build larger pictures of connectivity between other types of neuron across the brain. 

9. Developing Liquid Biopsies and Early Cancer Tests
A nice overview article gives an update of the rapid development of liquid biopsies and testing for early stage cancers via DNA sequencing a drop of blood from patients http://www.technologyreview.com/featuredstory/534991/liquid-biopsy/. The technique, originally developed for testing a drop of a pregnant woman’s blood to sequence DNA determine whether her fetus has Down Syndrome, is now making big strides in testing for the presence of early stage cancers with numerous clinical studies underway. The benefits of such a technique being rolled out would have a profound impact on patients as the prognosis for early, pre-symptomatic, cancer detection is much better. The the rapidly declining cost of DNA sequencing strongly suggests that before too long we might all have a weekly or monthly sequencing test. 

10. Silicon Nanofibers Enable Better Batteries
I don’t often cover battery technologies because they’re announced all the time with usually little result. But this new paper-like material composed of a high-density matrix of silicon nanofibers as an anode for lithium-ion batteries looks quite promising http://ucrtoday.ucr.edu/27263. Silicon can pack 10 times the electrical charge per unit weight compared to typical graphite electrodes in lithium-ion batteries and should enable similar-sized batteries with several times the storage capacity. Produced via electrospinning the new material solves existing problems of scalability and volume expansion. Multigram amounts were fabricated for prototyping and testing and the group next plans to fabricate a standard pouch-cell lithium-ion battery for testing with real devices. Doubling or quadrupling lithium-ion battery capacity impacts everything from smartphones to drones to electric vehicles.

21C Enaction: Newborn Neurons

Ping +Hans Youngmann​ +Mani Saint-Victor​

Newborn neurons in the adult brain may help us adapt to the environment

"New neurons may serve as a means to fine-tune the hippocampus to the predicted environment," Opendak says. "In particular, seeking out rewarding experiences or avoiding stressful experiences may help each individual optimize his or her own brain. However, more naturalistic experimental conditions may be a necessary step toward understanding the adaptive significance of neurons born in the adult brain."___21C Enaction: Newborn Neurons

Start a music publishing company
I recall when we recorded songs that were co-written, each one of us had our own publishing company. That way, we got the publishing royalties as well as mechanicals.
BMI has a decent Internet presence and mailing list.

Good Morning All Sentient Beings

Some Gaia residents are considering Life On Mars.

"I really like Earth. I love humans. I think we do so many amazing, beautiful things. i think the major problems that we face like global warming and violence and stuff like that. It's just that it's really hard to coordinate group action on such a massive scale to get countries and individuals who run them who are making tons of money agree to stop lining their pockets and do something that's good for everybody. Our brains are wired to have us survive. It's just a matter of taking that wiring and changing it to a new situation."
