Lisa Engles4,004*Link to the program mentioned in this hangout www.hangoutsforvisionaryleaders.com/program*Coaches, Authors and Speakers: Go From Ground Zero to Hangout HeroHave you spent a lot of time, energy and money spinning your wheels, trying to spread your message and build your audience using social media marketing, but haven’t seen the results that you hoped for?  Do you feel disconnected from the very people you want to reach?  Well, you’re not alone.  In fact, most heart-centered entrepreneurs and visionary leaders that I talk to all say the same thing: " I feel disconnected from the people I want to reach"  and : “I don’t like using social media, but I know I’m supposed to.”  And less than a year ago, I was one of them.​I was frustrated because there was something about social media that didn’t feel right to me.  I was very resistant to using it.  It felt useless to me because honestly, I was a small fish in a big pond of thousands of 'experts' who were using all types of tactics that felt pushy and in your face. If that's what I needed to do to get seen and get clients, then no thanks.  It's just not who I am.Then one day, I had an ‘ah-ha” moment.  I realized that the reason I was feeling so much resistance was because at the core of who I am and what I do as a coach, author and speaker is - connect and communicate.In that moment I saw how social media was actually putting a divide between me and ideal audience and was keeping me from getting noticed and ultimately, getting clients because there was a lack of authentic connection and communication. Think about it, how much can you really connect with people when you’re limited posting a 140 characters, a link or an image?  The lack of authentic engagement was not only keeping me from effectively communicating my message, it was keeping me from connecting with my ideal audience and it was ultimately keeping me from making money doing what I love to do. So I made it my goal to figure out how I could reach others with my message in a way that felt real and that created an opportunity for authentic connection.  And that’s when I decided to look into google hangouts on air.   Within 6 months of using hangouts on air (HOA) I was finally able to break the barriers between me and my ideal clients, get the support of influencers both in google plus and in my niche, establish my expertise and build a loyal following of people who want what I have to offer… all things I had been unsuccessful in accomplishing before.So, in this hangout I want to show you how you can have this type of success using hangouts as well.    #RonnieBincer  has been a big piece of my 'winning' equation, so he'll be joining us in this hangout where Hangout Strategies for Visionary Leaders2014-04-14 20:00:0098G+

curator Circle0As promised yesterday, here is the #CuratorCircleEdition  4Wisdom of this circle: Take time to view the profile of those you add if you care for the quality of the content shared on G+!Some of you that show interest to be included in the circle will not find themselves in. It is not an hazard; the minimum one can do while asking for inclusion in a shared circle is to include the sharer page or profile. Also due to the maximum space of 500 profiles, others have been kept for the next circle.Rules of the circle:1. Plus and share the circle (add me if you haven't done it yet)2. Comment to ask for inclusion. And enjoy your day.2014-05-06 13:53:46501361223CC G+

You can share this circle public and maybe your followers will add and re-share, because this is a one time share deal. We are focused on quality posting here and not circle sharing.

Today in History: Burroughs Receives Patent for Calculating Machine
On August 21, 1888 — 126 years ago today — William Seward Burroughs was granted a patent for a “calculating machine,” the first practical adding machine with market success.  Burroughs founded the American Arithmometer Company in 1886; in 1904, it would become the Burroughs Adding Machine Company; in 1953, the name changed again to the Burroughs Corporation; in 1986, Burroughs merged with the Sperry Corporation to form Unisys. 

Burroughs died in 1898 at age 41 and was posthumously inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame. His grandson and great-grandson, both also named William Burroughs, were writers who achieved fame in their genres.

Here's my honey's History post for the day.   Oh ya. 

Today in History: Darwin & Wallace Announce Evolution Theory
On August 20, 1858 — 156 years ago today — Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace made a joint announcement of the theory of evolution through natural selection in The Journal of the Proceedings of the Linnean Society of London. Since Darwin and Wallace first published their ideas, virtually every discovery in the fields of natural history, geology, genetics, and paleoanthropology has supported or extended their central thesis — all life is related, species change over time in response to natural selection, and new forms replace those that came before.

Capitalist Dream: Privatize Profits, Socialize Losses
From the linked article: The arrangement bears a notable resemblance to the subprime-mortgage-lending industry of a decade ago, with private equity playing the role of the investment banks, underqualified law students serving as the equivalent of overleveraged home buyers, and the American Bar Association standing in for the feckless ratings agencies. But there is a crucial difference. When the subprime market collapsed, legislation dedicating hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars to bailing out the banks had to be passed. In this case, no such action will be necessary: the private investors have, as it were, been bailed out before the fact by our federal educational-loan system. This situation, from the perspective of Sterling Partners and other investors in higher education, comes remarkably close to the capitalist dream of privatizing... more »

Why don't you come up and see me sometime big boy....  

Happy Birthday, Mae West!
Mae West was a lady who pushed at the edges of propriety, and her Vaudeville, Broadway, and Hollywood career brought her popular acclaim — even though she aroused the wrath and moral indignation of certain groups concerned with pristine standards.

Mae was born in 1893, and she died November 22, 1980 at age 87. Today is the 121st anniversary of Mae's birth. Happy Birthday, Mae!

The cable linked Valentia Harbor in Ireland to Trinity Bay in Newfoundland and reduced the communication time between North America and Europe from about 10 days — the time required to deliver messages by ship — to a matter of minutes (in this case, hours).

Queen Victoria’s message, which took 16 hours by Morse Code through 2,500 miles of cable, read as follows:
The Queen desires to congratulate the President upon the successful completion of this great international work, in which the Queen has taken the deepest interest. The Queen is convinced that the President will join with her in fervently hoping thatthe elect... more »

Today in History: First Telegraph between U.S. President & U.K. Queen
On August 16, 1858 — 156 years ago today — U.S. President James Buchanan and Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom inaugurated the first transatlantic telegraph cable by exchanging greetings. The cable linked Valentia Harbor in Ireland to Trinity Bay in Newfoundland and reduced the communication time between North America and Europe from about 10 days — the time required to deliver messages by ship — to a matter of minutes (in this case, hours).

Queen Victoria’s message, which took 16 hours by Morse Code through 2,500 miles of cable, read as follows:
The Queen desires to congratulate the President upon the successful completion of this great international work, in which the Queen has taken the deepest interest. The Queen is convinced that the President will join with her in fervently hoping that the electric cable, which now connects Great Britain with the United States, will prove an additional link between the two places whose friendship is founded upon their common interests and reciprocal esteem. The Queen has much pleasure in thus directly communicating with the President, and in renewing to him her best wishes for the prosperity of the United States.

President Buchanan replied:
May the Atlantic Telegraph, under the blessing of Heaven, prove to be a bond of perpetual peace and friendship between the kindred nations, and an instrument designed by Divine Providence to diffuse religion, civilization, liberty and law throughout the world.

Exponential acceleration of technology continued forward with this achievement — as the time required to send mail was reduced from 10 days by ship to hours and eventually seconds by underwater telegraph lines. Nonetheless, there was a steep learning curve in underwater cabling as this particular cable stopped working after three weeks. It would take another 7 years before investors were ready to make another attempt using more durable cabling. But by the 1870s, the technology had developed to allow for multiple messages to be simultaneously sent in either direction. In another 4 decades, an intricate network of cables connected the United States with Britain, France, and Germany.

Today, Google is investing in a $300 million new trans-Pacific cable that will connect the U.S. to Japan at transmission speeds of 60 terabits* per second (tbps) via the internet (6 channels, each capable of 10 tbps) — 10 million times faster than most users’ cable modems allow. Exponential acceleration of technology continues! 

*Terabit = one trillion bits (1,000,000,000,000)

Today in History: Panama Canal Opens
On July 15, 1914 — 100 years ago today — a colossal achievement of human engineering, the Panama Canal, opened for ship traffic, 33 years after work began. The scope of the Panama Canal “project” was so unprecedented that the American Society of Civil Engineers named this modern wonder of the world, a “monument of the millennium.”

The Canal was started by the French in 1881, but diseases (primarily yellow fever and malaria) caused a third of canal workers to become ill and many to die. Work stopped after nearly a decade of the French-led effort. Fifteen years later, in 1904, the under-construction canal was sold to the United States. The French had invested $287 million and sold their project rights to the U.S. for $40 million.

Today in History: Panama Canal Opens
On July 15, 1914 — 100 years ago today — a colossal achievement of human engineering, the Panama Canal, opened for ship traffic, 33 years after work began. The scope of the Panama Canal “project” was so unprecedented that the American Society of Civil Engineers named this modern wonder of the world, a “monument of the millennium.”

The Canal was started by the French in 1881, but diseases (primarily yellow fever and malaria) caused a third of canal workers to become ill and many to die. Work stopped after nearly a decade of the French-led effort. Fifteen years later, in 1904, the under-construction canal was sold to the United States. The French had invested $287 million and sold their project rights to the U.S. for $40 million. 

Medical knowledge had grown in the 15 years since the French attempt, and it was possible to better control the spread of diseases that plagued the French effort. Consequently, the U.S. renewed the effort to build the canal — using a system of locks. When the canal was finished, the U.S. had spent a total of $352 million, so the total canal cost, including the French investment, was $639 million [over $15.4 billion in today’s dollars]. Total recorded deaths of workers involved in building the canal were 25,609 (over 20,000 of those deaths occurred during the French initial project). The canal is about 48 miles long (77.1 kilometers); that means there were over 500 deaths for every mile of the canal.

Annual traffic has increased from about 1,000 ships in 1914 to over 15,000 ships today. Normal passage through the canal’s lock system takes about 10 hours, but this passage time does not include waiting time in backed-up ship traffic that can more than double the time of passing through the system. Nonetheless, a ship can save about 8,000 miles (over 12,500 kilometers) going through the Panama Canal instead of going around the tip of South America. 

[Interestingly, last month the government of Nicaragua approved a new massive construction project to connect the Pacific to the Atlantic oceans via a 173 mile (278 kilometers), sea-level, lock-free canal. A Chinese billionaire is reportedly the entrepreneur behind the construction of the Nicaraguan canal, expected to cost at least $50 billion.]

This day in history from my husband +Brad Acker 

Today in History: NASA’s Lunar Orbiter 1 achieves lunar orbit
On August 14, 1966 — 48 years ago today — NASA’s first of 5 unmanned lunar orbiter missions, Lunar Orbiter 1, successfully achieved lunar orbit. These 5 unmanned lunar orbiter missions were designed to select Apollo manned landing sites by mapping the Moon’s surface, and they provided the first images from lunar orbit. All lunar orbiter missions were eventually instructed to crash into the Moon so they would not interfere with the upcoming manned Apollo flights. (The USSR’s Luna 10 was the first successful lunar orbit mission, which occurred earlier in the year in April, 1966.)

All moon missions leading up to NASA’s first successful lunar orbit mission:

(1) USA - Pioneer - failed lunar orbiter (August 1958)
(2) USSR - Luna 1958A - failed lunar impactor (September 1958)
(3) USA - Pioneer 1 - failed lunar orbiter (October 1958)
(4) USSR - Luna 1958B - failed lunar impactor (October 1958)
(5) USA - Pioneer 2 - failed lunar orbiter (November 1958)
(6) USSR - Luna 1958C - failed lunar impactor (December 1958)
(7) USA - Pioneer 3 - failed lunar flyby (December 1958)
(8) USSR - Luna 1 - failed lunar impactor (January 1959)
(9) USSR - Luna 1959A - failed lunar impactor (June 1959)
(10) USA - Pioneer 4 - FIRST successful lunar flyby * (March 1959)
(11) USSR - Luna 2 - FIRST successful lunar impactor (September 1959)
(12) USSR - Luna 3 - successful lunar flyby (October 1959)
(13) USA - Pioneer P-3 - failed lunar flyby (November 1959)
(14) USA - Ranger 1 - failed earth-orbit test vehicle (August 1961)
(15) USA - Ranger 2 - failed earth-orbit test vehicle (November 1961)
(16) USA - Ranger 3 - failed lunar lander (January 1962)
(17) USA - Ranger 4 - failed lunar lander (April 1962)
(18) USA - Ranger 5 - failed lunar lander (October 1962)
(19) USSR - Sputnik 25 - failed lunar lander (January 1963)
(20) USSR - Luna 4 - failed lunar orbiter (April 1963)
(21) USA - Ranger 6 - failed lunar impactor (January 1964)
(22) USA - Ranger 7 - successful lunar impactor (July 1964)
(23) USA - Ranger 8 - successful lunar impactor (February 1965)
(24) USA - Ranger 9 - successful lunar impactor (March 1965)
(25) USSR - Luna 5 - failed lunar lander (May 1965)
(26) USSR - Luna 6 - failed lunar lander (June 1965)
(27) USSR - Zond 3 - successful lunar flyby (July 1965)
(28) USSR - Luna 7 - failed lunar lander (October 1965)
(29) USSR - Luna 8 - failed lunar lander (December 1965)
(30) USSR - Luna 9 - FIRST successful lunar lander (February 1966)
(31) USSR - Cosmos 111 - failed moon flyby (March 1966)
(32) USSR - Luna 10 - FIRST successful lunar orbiter (April 1966)
(33) USA - Surveyor 1 - successful lunar lander (August 1966)
(34) USA - Lunar Orbiter 1 - successful lunar orbiter (August 1966)

SIDENOTE: Larry Page, CEO of Google, says that he expects project failures in GoogleX — the “moonshot” unit where extraordinary ideas are explored and engineered to feasible life. Larry understands this record of lunar missions, and he realizes that failures are necessary to learn lessons that lead to success.

Today in History: First-Man Made Object Recovered after Earth Orbit
On August 11, 1960 — 54 years ago today — the U.S. Navy retrieved from the ocean near Hawaii the first earth-orbiting satellite to decelerate into re-entry through the atmosphere and be recovered with an instrument package. The satellite demonstrated techniques that would be needed for manned-space travel. 

The intention of the program was to spy on the Soviet Union. Earlier in the year, the Soviet Union had shot down a U.S. U-2 spy plane while it was conducting espionage over the Soviet Union. The event was an embarrassment to the U.S., especially because the U.S. government first issued a statement indicating that the plane was a “weather plane” that had veered off course. The pilot of the plane, who parachuted to safety, was interrogated by the KGB and confessed to espionage.

The pilot of the plane, who parachuted to safety, was interrogated by the KGB and confessed to espionage.

As a result of the U-2 incident, the U.S. was seeking a way to conduct espionage without interference. The Department of Defense wanted a satellite to take photos — without using insecure radio transmission that the Soviet Union might disrupt — and return the photos to earth in a canister. The idea was to slow the descent of the canister by parachute and then snag the parachute shrouds with a trapeze-like hook from an Air Force plane. The canister would then be pulled on board the plane and taken to a secure location where the photographic film would be developed. If the snag attempt failed, the canister would stay afloat long enough for Navy helicopters to retrieve it, which is what happened in the Discoverer 13 mission. In subsequent Discoverer missions, planes were able to grapple the parachuting canister.

The IBM PC and its clones (made by other manufacturers) went on to dominate the market, and by 1995 the only significant alternative to the IBM PC and clones was Apple! But 23 years after the IBM PC’s introduction, IBM sold its personal computing division to China’s Lenovo Group. Clone-manufacturers’ competitive pricing had sapped IBM PC’s profit margins, and IBM decided to focus on its more profitable services market to enterprises (big, medium, and small businesses).

Robin Williams and Christopher Reeve: a quick story
When Christopher Reeve (who played Superman for several movies, and broke his neck in a horse riding accident) was in the hospital, awaiting a back surgery that had a fifty/fifty chance of killing him, a man burst into his room. He was wearing surgical scrubs, talking in a Russian accent, and said he was there to give a rectal exam. It was Robin Williams; the two men had been roommates together at Juilliard. Later Reeve said of his life-long friend:

For the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.

That's sort of what Robin Williams did for all of us.

I have to try these.  

Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but who has time to cook a hot one before heading out the door? Make a batch of these mini-quiches; they freeze great and reheat in minutes as hot breakfast bites.

In addition, these are great little appetizers for your next cocktail party. 

Make-Ahead Recipe: Crustless Mini-Quiches Recipe
#MakeAheadRecipe   #MiniQuiche   #Recipe   #CocktailParty   #Breakfast   #Brunch  

The lack of crust makes them a snap. A pinch of grated cheese in the bottom of each mini muffin cup forms a shell, and the eggs and filling set inside. I always eat a few straight out of the oven on the first batch, but they're even better frozen and re-heated - crispy on the outside, with a warm, eggy middle.

My mother always kept trays of these frozen quiches on hand, filled with our favorite morsels -- sausage, bacon, mushrooms and herbs. On a busy morning, or for company, she'd pop a dozen in the oven and turn out an effortless breakfast.

Crustless Zucchini and Basil Mini-Quiches

Makes 48 pieces; adapted from Fine Cooking Magazine
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 1/4 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
1 cup heavy cream
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
Oil, for the pan
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 shallots, minced
2 small zucchini, grated
1/4 cup grated Gruyere or Parmesan cheese
Fresh basil, finely chopped

Heat oven to 450°F.

Prepare Batter: Put the cornstarch in a medium bowl. Whisking steadily, slowly pour in 1/2 cup of the milk, mixing until quite smooth. Whisk in the whole eggs and egg yolks, mixing again until smooth, then gradually whisk in the rest of the milk, the cream, salt, and nutmeg. Use immediately or refrigerate, covered, for up to one day. If using the next day, be sure to re-whisk.

Prepare Zucchini Mixture: In a nonstick pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and shallots and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add grated zucchini, and stir until just softened, another 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat.

Oil mini muffin tins well. Put a pinch grated cheese into each muffin cup, a teaspoon of zucchini mixture, and pinch of chopped fresh basil. Pour 1 tablespoon of the batter into each muffin cup.

Bake until the quiches puff and start to turn golden, 15-18 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes and then carefully run a paring knife around the rim of each muffin cup. Carefully lift each quiche out of its cup.

Mini quiches freeze very well. Let cool, then freeze in a single layer in a covered container. Reheat on a cookie sheet in a 400 degree oven for about 5-10 minutes.

Great Meme/Question to Grok the Power of Solar Power
For context: the sun has almost exactly a million times the volume of the earth, so this image is not out of proportion. The sun is a fusion reactor perfectly sited the Goldilocks distance from earth —not too near and not too far. Just right. 

Every second, 600 million tons of hydrogen are FUSED (yes...fusion, baby) into 595 million tons of helium. Each gram of that missing matter, via the magic of E = MCsquared, releases a nuclear bomb's worth of energy, in the form of photons, units of electromagnetic energy. About a thousand years later, these photons make their way to the surface, where one-billionth of them hit the earth, giving us 6,000 times the energy we use from all sources, including the 80% we get — absurdly — from the dead plants and dead animals baked and squeezed from 600 million to 350 million years ago.

This is good to know. 

Great news: Fruits and veggies actually destroy cancer cells http://b4in.org/p7Eh

Cancer, second only to heart disease as a leading cause of death for Americans, will claim the lives of over 310,000 men and 275,000 women this year, according to current statistics from the American Cancer Society.

Unfortunately, this comes as no surprise to anyone witnessing the increase in pesticide and herbicide usage on our farm lands, wireless technology and chemtrails. Of course, the proliferation of highly-processed, sugary foods loaded with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is another major reason why we see so much suffering in this world.

Let’s face it, according to many health experts, the vast majority of these deaths – as well as the 1.6 million new cases that will be diagnosed in 2014 – are preventable.

We must do everything in our power to avoid any threat to our health and happiness. What could be more important than that? Watch out: Poor diet seems to be the ‘800 pound gorilla’ in the room In an article published in Pharmaceutical Research, the authors – researchers at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center – assert that only 5 to 10 percent of cancers can be attributed to genetic causes; lifestyle and environmental factors account for the rest.

Of the factors believed to contribute to cancer, which include smoking, poor diet, environmental pollutants, sun exposure, obesity, infections, stress, alcohol and physical inactivity, diet is one of the most significant, accounting for roughly a third of many types of cancer, and up to 70 percent of colorectal cancers.

These statistics are actually cause for hope – diet is one thing over which you have complete control. Bright coloration of fruits and vegetables are a tip-off to their protective qualities

Eating plentiful amounts of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables – along with restricting calories, eating whole grains, and minimizing meat consumption – can help you dramatically reduce your cancer risk.

Due to their content of beneficial natural pigments, chemopreventive fruits and vegetables tend to be brightly or deeply colored – picture the brilliant orange of carrots and tangerines, the vibrant red of tomatoes, the intense green of broccoli, and the rich indigo of blueberries.

With some notable exceptions – such as onions and garlic – life-prolonging fruits and vegetables are recognizable by their eye-catching hues. Naturally, due to social pressures or ‘old’ habits, it can sometimes be a challenge to eat healthy – but the rewards are worth the effort.

Fruits and vegetables are loaded with phytochemicals to prevent cancer

Another great History post. 

Today in History: Two Magellans Make History
On August 10, 1990 — 24 years ago today — NASA’s Magellan spacecraft arrived at the planet Venus and was inserted into a near-polar elliptical orbit. Magellan mapped 98% of the surface of Venus using synthetic aperture radar (SAR) to determine the topographic relief. Radio communications were lost with Magellan on October 12, 1994. Magellan was launched by the Space Shuttle Atlantis in early May, 1989 (see photo - Magellan being deployed from the Atlantis cargo bay).

On August 10, 1519 — 495 years ago today — Ferdinand Magellan set sail from Seville, Spain with 5 ships and 270 men in the first successful attempt to travel around the Earth. Only 18 men actually completed the full circumnavigation by returning to Seville on September 8, 1522 aboard the single ship that completed the entire journey, the Victoria. Magellan was killed by a poisoned arrow in the Philippines after becoming involved in a local power struggle.
