Lisa Engles4,099*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 20:00:0098

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 13:53:46501361123

Today in History: Osborne Computer Corp. declares bankruptcy
On September 13, 1983 — 31 years ago today — Osborne Computer Corporation (OCC) declared bankruptcy. OCC was founded by Adam Osborne, and it became a pioneer in making portable computers — the Osborne 1 was the first mass-produced portable computer.

Before OCC, Adam Osborne was a pioneer in computer publishing — founding a company that specialized in easy-to-understand computer manuals. After Adam sold his publishing company to McGraw-Hill in 1979, he started OCC and hired Lee Felsenstein to design the Osborne 1. Lee was one of the original members of the Homebrew Computer Club, where he met Adam and Steve Wozniak (Apple co-founder). The Homebrew Computer Club’s newsletter became an influential force in the culture of Silicon Valley, and it initiated the idea of the personal computer.

Hot Jupiter Exoplanets Can Cause Their Host Suns To Wobble  http://bit.ly/1maQ30J

It would seem like a star couldn’t be affected by anything less than another star, but new evidence from Cornell University reveals that “hot Jupiters,” or large gaseous exoplanets, can cause their host stars to wobble as the planets wend their way through their own solar systems to snuggle up against their suns.

“Although the planet’s mass is only one-thousandth of the mass of the sun, the stars in these other solar systems are being affected by these planets and making the stars themselves act in a crazy way,” said Dong Lai, Cornell professor of astronomy, who collaborated on this research with physics graduate student Natalia I. Storch and astronomy graduate student Kassandra R. Anderson.

Hot Jupiter Exoplanets Can Cause Their Host Suns To Wobble  http://bit.ly/1maQ30J

It would seem like a star couldn’t be affected by anything less than another star, but new evidence from Cornell University reveals that “hot Jupiters,” or large gaseous exoplanets, can cause their host stars to wobble as the planets wend their way through their own solar systems to snuggle up against their suns.

“Although the planet’s mass is only one-thousandth of the mass of the sun, the stars in these other solar systems are being affected by these planets and making the stars themselves act in a crazy way,” said Dong Lai, Cornell professor of astronomy, who collaborated on this research with physics graduate student Natalia I. Storch and astronomy graduate student Kassandra R. Anderson.

In our own solar system, the Sun’s rotation axis is nearly aligned with the orbital axis — which is perpendicular to the flat plane in which the planets revolve around the sun — of all the planets in the system. Solar systems that host hot Jupiters, however, have been observed as having a planetary orbital axis that is misaligned with the rotational axis of their host stars. This misalignment between the star and the planets has puzzled astronomers for decades.
Planets known as hot Jupiters are large, gaseous and dispersed throughout the universe in other solar systems. They wander from distance places to orbit exceptionally close to their host stars.

These giant, Jupiter-like planets are influenced through the gravity of the host star’s binary partner – which can be hundreds of astronomical units (93 million miles) away – to fall into uncommon orbits. These orbits cause the planets to migrate inward, closer to their suns.

When taking a walk in the woods, people in Borneo do it in the air! :) Rainforests are quite common in Borneo (which is the third largest island in the world, and the largest in Asia). The island comprises three countries - Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia.  So says wiki anyway. :)

Robin McLauren Williams, born in Chicago, Illinois in 1951, made the world laugh for so many years. From his hit comedy sitcom "Mork & Mindy" to his hilarious crossdressing comedy "Mrs. Doubtfire", this man never failed to make us laugh out loud. We will never forget Robin Williams, and we will continue to cherish the laughter and happiness he gave to us, and will continue to give to us with his legacy that he left behind, for many years to come. If I was able to, I would tell him: "Thank you Mr. Williams. Thank you for making the entire world a better place with your humor and generosity." Let us never forget this wonderful humanbeing.


Rest in peace, 1951-2014.

This was so tragic for the Gulf Coast.  

Today in History: Largest Marine Oil Spill Officially Ends
On September 19, 2010 — 5 months after it began — the explosion and fire and subsequent catastrophic oil spill at BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico was officially declared permanently sealed by the National Incident Commander Thad Allen. 

The uncontrolled oil eruption that followed the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig was “capped” on July 15, 2010, but the oil rig’s deepwater well was not verified as being completely dead by an official authority until September 19, 2010 — 4 years ago today. [For further information about the cap and the disaster, please see https://plus.google.com/+BradAcker/posts/ABbjxQY18Yv]

This is the best Chicken Piccata I have ever made.  OMG. 





Chicken Piccata





Ingredients
2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1 1/2 pound total)
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup flour
Salt and pepper
4 Tbsp olive oil
4 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup chicken stock or dry white wine
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup brined capers
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley

1 Cut the chicken breast halves horizontally, butterflying them open. If the breast pieces you are working with are large, you may want to cut them each into two pieces. If the pieces are still thick after butterflying, put them between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound them with a meat hammer to 1/4-inch thickness.

If the pieces are still thick after butterflying, put them between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound them with a meat hammer to 1/4-inch thickness.
2 Mix together the flour, salt, pepper, and grated Parmesan. Rinse the chicken pieces in water. Dredge them thoroughly in the flour mixture, until well coated.
3 Heat olive oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet on medium high heat. Add half of the chicken pieces, do not crowd the pan. Brown well on each side, about 3 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan and reserve to a plate. Cook the other breasts in the same manner, remove from pan. Cover with aluminum foil and keep warm in the oven while you prepare the sauce.
4 Add the chicken stock (or white wine), lemon juice, and capers to the pan. Use a spatula to scrape up the browned bits. Reduce the sauce by half. Whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Plate the chicken and serve with the sauce poured over the chicken. Sprinkle with parsley.___

Today's lunch for my hubby.  

Broiled Salmon with Lemon and Olive Oil

This dish is a highly nutritious choice that has a wonderful citrus flavor from the lemon. Monounsaturated fat from olive oil, Omega-3 fatty acids from salmon, make for a heart healthy recipe. I made a side salad with cucumbers, celery, carrots, tomatoes and snap peas. 

*Ingredients: *

4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon fresh or dried rosemary

Broil fish 5 1/2 inches from heat 10 to 12 minutes or until fillets flake easily with a fork.
Arrange baby spinach and kale on a serving platter; top with fillets.
Whisk together remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1 tablespoon oil; drizzle evenly over fillets. Garnish, if desired.___

Today in History: First Airplane Fatality
On September 17, 1908 — 106 years ago today — Orville Wright’s lone passenger, U.S. Army Lieutenant Thomas Selfridge, became the first individual to die in an airplane crash. The crash occurred while Orville was engaged in a flight test of his aircraft for the U.S. Army.

Since the Wright brothers’ historic first flight on December 17, 1903, Orville and Wilbur had spent most of their time developing and testing their new invention, and they were confident enough in their product to begin seeking business contracts. In 1908, the U.S. Army finally gave the Brothers an opportunity to demonstrate a “heavier-than-air” flying machine over a measured course that required a series of maneuvers.

In 1908, the U.S. Army finally gave the Brothers an opportunity to demonstrate a “heavier-than-air” flying machine over a measured course that required a series of maneuvers. A contract would be awarded if the plane could fly 2 people, fly 40 miles per hour, make an hour-long endurance flight, and be transportable by Army wagons. The Army also agreed to pay the contract awardee $25,000 for one plane and $2,500 (about $60,000 adjusting for inflation) for every mile per hour that the flying machine speed exceeded 40 mph. The Army intended to use flying machines for observation and reconnaissance work.

Orville had practiced for the Army’s test flights in Fort Myer, Virginia. Much of the public was still not convinced that anyone had achieved powered flight. But news spread about these test flights, and soon thousands were watching them. Orville’s test flights established a number of world records for endurance. The last flight included Lieutenant Selfridge. 

From the Wright-Brothers.org site: The flight began normally and uneventfully as Orville made climbing circles around the grounds. Suddenly there were two loud thumps. Later, the Wrights and the Army would learn that a propeller had split. As Orville reached to cut off the engine, the airplane gave a violent shake as the broken propeller caught the aircraft rigging. The craft lunged for the ground, hitting nose first and burying the pilot and passenger in a twisted mess of wood, wire, and cloth.

Orville, bleeding and unconscious, was pulled from the subsequent wreckage. Lt. Selfridge was trapped in the wreck, and it took much longer to extricate him. Both men were taken to the fort’s hospital. Lt. Selfridge died on the operating table, the first victim of an accident in a powered flying machine. Orville suffered a broken leg, broken ribs, and an injured back. Although in serious condition, Orville survived and the Brothers were awarded the Army contract the next year.

Great post about Steve Jobs.  

Today in History: Steve Jobs Exits (1985); Returns to Apple (1997)
On September 16, 1985, Steve Jobs resigned from Apple, after losing a power struggle with the board of directors. Steve had co-founded Apple in 1976 to produce the first wave of affordable personal computers. He strongly promoted the GUI (graphical user interface) design that helped popularize computers and led to Microsoft’s development of the Windows operating system, which copied much of Apple’s operating system’s GUI. Steve, especially in his early entrepreneurial years, was not always easy to work with and was becoming such a disruptive force within Apple that it became necessary for the board to diminish his power. After months with little executive power, although he remained as Chairman, Steve resigned 29 years ago today. He wrote the resignation letter this day and dated/sent it September 17.

Steve informed Apple that he wanted to build a breakthrough computer to revolutionize research and higher education and that he intended to start a new computer company with a small number of Apple employees. However, Apple chose to sue Steve for stealing company secrets, as he was launching this company, called NeXT. Apple withdrew the suit and quietly settled it out of court. Although NeXt was a commercial failure, its sophisticated workstation was used by Tim Berners-Lee in the creation of the web, and it did create a modern operating system. In fact, a decade after Steve launched NeXT, Apple bought NeXT for about $425 million to acquire its operating system to replace the ageing Mac OS. In the acquisition deal, Steve was hired by Apple as an adviser to Apple’s CEO Gil Amelio.

On September 16, 1997 — just 17 years ago today and only within a few months of his return to Apple — Steve was made “interim” Apple CEO. (Much later, Steve would joke that he had been the “iCEO.”) Amelio had resigned in July, following a continual plunge of Apple stock, mostly as a result of huge quarterly losses and annual losses exceeding $1 billion (and partly manipulated by Steve Job’s selling of stock). And the rest is history, haha .... a brief overview of this history:

When Steve took over as “interim” CEO, Apple was approaching bankruptcy. Steve was now older and wiser; and he used his experience and wisdom to engineer one of the most incredible business turnarounds in U.S. history. First, Steve persuaded Bill Gates and Microsoft to make a $150 million investment in Apple. This was not a popular move among Apple fans, but Steve saw it as the most efficient way to set Apple on a course to prevail in the dawning war for digital media devices linked to the Internet and web resources. Second, Steve installed new G3 PowerPC microprocessors in Apple computers, making them faster than competing Pentium PCs. Third, he spearheaded the development of a new Mac, the “iMac,” designed as an affordable computer for the home desk. By the end of 1998, Apple was profitable again and sales were growing.

During the next decade before his death, Steve led Apple as it rolled out a series of revolutionary products: 
(1) the “iPod” portable digital audio player in 2001;
(2) the online music download marketplace, the iTunes Store, in 2003;
(3) the “iPhone” smart device in 2007;
(4) the “iPad” tablet in 2010.

Apple sold hundreds of millions of these devices and billions of downloads at the iTunes Store. In addition, it opened the most successful retail stores in the history of business. In the process, Apple’s market capitalization went from $3 billion at the start of 1997 to over $600 billion today.

Today in History: First spacecraft to reach the Moon.
On September 14, 1959 — 55 years ago today — the Soviet Union’s space probe Luna 2 became the first man-made object to reach the Moon and the first man-made object to impact with another celestial body. This mission was the third major “first” achievement of the Soviet Union in the Cold War’s “Space Race.” On October 4, 1957, the Soviet Union launched the first man-made object into Earth orbit, Sputnik 1. On August 19, 1960, the Soviet Union launched the first animals into space, two female dogs, who orbited the Earth for 24 hours and returned safely to Earth.

I love sharing my hubby's History of the Day Posts. 

On September 15, 1997 —  17 years ago — Larry Page and Sergey Brin registered “Google.com” as a domain. The registration occurred almost a full year before the young men received their first investor’s check to launch Google. In 1996, when Larry and Sergey were beginning to develop their search engine, they called it “BackRub” — because it analyzed the web’s “back links” and because it connoted a less stressful, relaxing way of finding the information searchers were seeking. As the search engine rapidly improved, Larry wanted a more formal name to describe the search service’s colossal task of organizing and prioritizing the world’s massive quantity of growing information. 

According to David Koller in the Stanford Computer Science Department —
_Larry's office was in room 360 of the Gates CS Building, which he shared with several other graduate students, including Sean Anderson, Tamara Munzner, and Lucas Pereira. In 1997, Larry and his officemates discussed a number of possible new names for the rapidly improving search technology. Sean [Anderson] recalls the final brainstorming session as occurring one day during September of that year [1997].

Sean and Larry were in their office, using the whiteboard, trying to think up a good name — something that related to the indexing of an immense amount of data. Sean verbally suggested the word “googolplex,” and Larry responded verbally with the shortened form, “googol” (both words refer to specific large numbers). Sean was seated at his computer terminal, so he executed a search of the Internet domain name registry database to see if the newly suggested name was still available for registration and use. Sean is not an infallible speller, and he made the mistake of searching for the name spelled as “google.com,” which he found to be available. Larry liked the name, and within hours he took the step of registering the name “google.com” for himself and Sergey (the domain name registration record dates from September 15, 1997).

I have been in computers since 1980 and I can't remember this one.  

Today in History: Osborne Computer Corp. declares bankruptcy
On September 13, 1983 — 31 years ago today — Osborne Computer Corporation (OCC) declared bankruptcy. OCC was founded by Adam Osborne, and it became a pioneer in making portable computers — the Osborne 1 was the first mass-produced portable computer.

Before OCC, Adam Osborne was a pioneer in computer publishing — founding a company that specialized in easy-to-understand computer manuals. After Adam sold his publishing company to McGraw-Hill in 1979, he started OCC and hired Lee Felsenstein to design the Osborne 1. Lee was one of the original members of the Homebrew Computer Club, where he met Adam and Steve Wozniak (Apple co-founder). The Homebrew Computer Club’s newsletter became an influential force in the culture of Silicon Valley, and it initiated the idea of the personal computer.

Lee’s design featured a 5-inch, 52-column display, 2 floppy disk drives, a Z80 microprocessor, and 64K of RAM. It weighed 24.5 pounds (12 kg) and cost $1,795 — a little over half the cost of comparable computers from other manufacturers. It ran the popular CP/M 2.2 operating system and was designed to fit under an airline seat. It started shipping in July, 1981. At its peak, OCC shipped 10,000 Osborne 1’s a month. Adam Osborne was one of the first PC pioneers to recognize that there was a big market of PC buyers who were not just hobbyists. The Osborne 1 included key business productivity software — word processing and spreadsheet applications.

With 50,000 Osborne 1’s on backorder, the company grew from 2 employees — Osborne and Felsenstein — to 3,000 employees and $73 million in sales in just 12 months. However, competition quickly ensued — Kaypro offered larger screens, Apple had a large software library, IBM’s PC was faster, and Compaq offered an inexpensive PC that was IBM-compatible. In addition, Adam began demonstrating an advanced model, called the Osborne Executive, to journalists in early 1983. The knowledge that an advanced model was soon to be released led many dealers to cancel orders for the Osborne 1. Unsold inventory piled up; and despite prices cuts, sales plummeted and losses mounted.

Drinking plenty of water (up to 4L daily), exercising and getting rid of stress are important, but so are the foods you consume. Eating a protein heavy diet (animal products, processed greasy food) puts a lot of stress on the kidneys and raises the levels of uric acid generated by the kidneys.

Consuming foods that are healing to the kidneys is a great step in the direction to optimal kidney function. Pretty much all plant-based foods help heal the body, but these 12 fruit and vegetables I outline below are specifically targeted to help heal any ailment of the kidneys you might now be suffering.

Here are my top 12 kidney-friendly plant-based foods that you may want to start including in your diet!___

Today in History: Sewing Machine Patent Granted
On September 10, 1846 — 168 years ago today — Elias Howe was awarded a patent for the sewing machine from the U.S. Patent Office. Other inventors had worked on the concept for such a machine over previous decades, and working machines were even in use. But it was Howe’s patent application that was granted, and his basic machine designs were used by Isaac Merritt Singer to mass produce the “Singer sewing machine.” A legal battle ensued from 1849 to 1854, the result of which was that Howe earned considerable royalties from Singer sales. Both Singer and Howe died as multi-millionaires, largely from the patent awarded this day, 168 years ago.

Both Singer and Howe died as multi-millionaires, largely from the patent awarded this day, 168 years ago.

Before the invention of the sewing machine, women and children were primarily employed in the system of clothing production. They generally worked in overcrowded, insanitary cottages and workrooms for long hours every day at very low wages. 

Machine production of garments, over time, revolutionized the clothing production industry. For women who made clothes for themselves and their families, sewing machines freed them from hours of tedious hand sewing. But for women who worked in “sweat shops,” life was tough. Most women eventually entered other professions, especially in the developing administrative/service economy. Unfortunately, “sweat shops” still exist; most of them have moved to Asia.

Today in History: First spacecraft to closely encounter a comet
On September 11, 1985 — 29 years ago today — the International Cometary Explorer (ICE) became the first spacecraft to closely encounter a comet when it passed through the tail of comet Giacobini-Zinner. This comet’s central core is estimated to be about 1.25 miles in diameter (2.0 kilometers), and it takes 6.6 earth years to orbit the sun. As a typical comet gets closer to the sun on its highly elliptical orbit around the sun, the comet's core emits gas that forms an atmosphere around the comet — known as a “coma.” A spray of this gas, along with bits of rock and dust, stream out from the comet, forming a “comet tail.” ICE was directed to pass through this tail of comet Giacobini-Zinner..

Today in History: First spacecraft to closely encounter a comet
On September 11, 1985 — 29 years ago today — the International Cometary Explorer (ICE) became the first spacecraft to closely encounter a comet when it passed through the tail of comet Giacobini-Zinner. This comet’s central core is estimated to be about 1.25 miles in diameter (2.0 kilometers), and it takes 6.6 earth years to orbit the sun. As a typical comet gets closer to the sun on its highly elliptical orbit around the sun, the comet's core emits gas that forms an atmosphere around the comet — known as a “coma.” A spray of this gas, along with bits of rock and dust, stream out from the comet, forming a “comet tail.” ICE was directed to pass through this tail of comet Giacobini-Zinner..

Before ICE was directed to explore the Giacobini-Zinner comet, the spacecraft (artist’s rendition below, right) was named by its primary mission, the International Sun-Earth Explorer-3 (ISEE-3). Launched on August 12, 1978, the satellite was part of a 3-spacecraft international cooperative program between NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) to study the interaction of the solar wind with the Earth’s magnetosphere. Once this mission had successfully concluded, NASA directed the spacecraft to fly through the tail of Giacobini-Zinner. After the successful flyby of this comet and then increasingly infrequent contact with the spacecraft, NASA eventually ended communications with ICE in 1997.

Interestingly, as civilization evolves and crowdfunding incrementally replaces nationalistic-government functions, a private team, the ISEE-3 Reboot Project, with NASA’s approval, decided to raise money in order to re-establish contact with ICE/ISEE-3 and direct it to continue taking measurements of solar wind — instructing the 36-year old spacecraft to re-commence its primary purpose. Using the crowdfunding platform, rockethub.com, the team exceeded its $125,000 crowdfunding goal [http://www.rockethub.com/42228]. Just last week, the team issued the following statement:  On September 4 [2014] we attempted to contact ISEE-3 from the Morehead State University dish. Our plan was to switch antennas and to change antenna orientation. We were unable to make contact with ISEE-3 although we can still hear it. The next attempt to contact and command ISEE-3 will be attempted next week. On Monday of this week, the team reported: The SETI Institute Allen Array has been listening to ISEE-3 transponder B and will now start listening to transponder A.

{new post} Summer Harvest White Chicken Chili

For those late summer days when you still have piles of produce sitting on your counter and you'd like to enjoy a quick meal that's not too heavy. It definitely helps to have homemade stock and beans in your freezer or fridge, but convenience items work, as well.

P.S. My squash-hating boyfriend ate this soup, even though it had zucchini slices. #winning

Wow,  this is an amazing story. 

I intended to have a 9.11 social media “day of silence” for myself but after I talked to my mom this morning and she told me about what happened yesterday (when she and my dad were standing in line at the grocery store) and...

The woman ahead of them went to pay for her groceries with a debit card but it came back that her account was empty. Now, while that has happened to plenty of us (at some point in our lives), at least, in my case, I knew it was empty. This woman was shocked! 

We don't know why it was empty but there are a number of reasons I could imagine and I'm sure she's dealing with (at least) one of those reasons today. However, I think we all need to hear what happened next.

This woman started sobbing. Broken, hopeless, hurting tears. The kind that said, “This is too much and I'm at the end of my rope. I'm desperate, I need help and I need it now.”

Have you ever heard that sort of crying before? I have, and your heart breaks for the person crying those kinds of tears—and it should.

So my dad looks at my mom and gets the nod (of agreement he's looking for) and, quietly, follows the woman over to the customer service counter and once there asks, “How much were they?”

The woman answers (through her tears) “A lot.” And it turned out to be over $200.

There was another woman standing there with my parents and, together, they all decide that they would split her bill so that she could have her groceries.

That's a beautiful part to this (otherwise) sad story but guess what? It gets even better because the store manager looked at all of them and said, “No, it's okay, we're going to absorb this.” And had someone take the groceries to her car.

Now, I don't know if the store has a policy for that sort of thing or if this manager made the call on his own or even if he paid for it out of his own pocket but I will tell you this—I will be driving to that store to buy my groceries from now on. ;)

Way more important than that...

Is that someone (when they needed it most) was lifted up by others. I wouldn't be so bold as to tell you how to feel, think or react to hearing this story—I only offer it—on a day that was going to be a silent one for me.

One last thing...I wish that we all know peace, love, kindness, forgiveness, compassion and (should we ever find we need it) to be lifted up by others.

Thanks for listening. :)

Today in History: CERN’s Large Hadron Collider Begins Operations
On September 10, 2008 — 6 years ago today — CERN scientists successfully fired the first protons around the main ring of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The LHC is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator; it was built on the French-Swiss border near Geneva, although most of the tunnel ring is in France. The LHC was constructed in collaboration with over 10,000 scientists and engineers from over 100 countries and with 100s of universities and scientific laboratories. 

The circular tunnel that houses the LHC is 17 miles (27 kilometers) in circumference, buried at a depth range representing about a 15 story-building in feet to about a 50-story building in feet (164 to 574 feet or 50 to 175 meters below ground); the concrete-lined tunnel is 12 feet wide (3.8 meters).

Today in History: CERN’s Large Hadron Collider Begins Operations
On September 10, 2008 — 6 years ago today — CERN scientists successfully fired the first protons around the main ring of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The circular tunnel that houses the LHC is 17 miles (27 kilometers) in circumference, buried at a depth range representing about a 15 story-building in feet to about a 50-story building in feet (164 to 574 feet or 50 to 175 meters below ground); the concrete-lined tunnel is 12 feet wide (3.8 meters). It was built between 1983 and 1988, and it was used for electron-positron collisions before it was converted for use as a large hadron collider to enable energy collisions more than 7 times any predecessor collider.

Inside the LHC accelerator, 2 high-energy particle beams travel near the speed of light before they are directed to collide. The beams are traveling in opposite directions in separate pipes, or tubes, which are kept at ultrahigh vacuum. Superconducting electromagnets guide the beams around the accelerator ring. These electromagnets are constructed from specialized electric cable coils that are cooled to -271.3°C — a temperature colder than outer space. Such cooling is achieved by a liquid helium distribution system.

The collision data is analyzed by a grid-based computer network — the largest such infrastructure in the world — comprising 170 computing centers across 36 countries. The LHC uses 7 detectors which have been built in large caverns excavated at the LHC’s intersection points. The 7 detectors are as follows: 

(1) ATLAS (A Toroidal LHC Apparatus), used to observe phenomena involving highly massive particles with unprecedented energy. 

(2) CMS (Compact Muon Solenoid), used to investigate the Higgs boson, extra dimensions, and potential dark matter particles. In July 2012, along with ATLAS, the CMS tentatively discovered the Higgs Boson.

(3) ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment), optimized to study heavy-ion collisions where quarks and gluons are freed — such as the condition that is believed to have existed a fraction of a second after the Big Bang before quarks and gluons bound together to form hadrons and heavier particles. 

(4) LHCb (Large Hadron Collider beauty), used to explore and explain matter-antimatter asymmetry of the Universe.

(5) MoEDAL (Monopole and Exotics Detector At the LHC), used to directly search for the magnetic monopole or dyon and other highly ionizing stable massive particles and pseudo-stable massive particles. The grand unified and superstring theories predict the existence of these elementary particles.

(6) TOTEM (TOTal Elastic and diffractive cross section Measurement), used to measure total cross section, elastic scattering, and diffractive processes of colliding particles.

(7) LHCf (Large Hadron Collider forward), used to study the particles generated in the “forward” area of collisions — those particles almost directly in line with colliding proton beams. The aim is to help explain the origin of ultra-high energy cosmic rays.
