It contains people that go beyond the norm and their contributions to G+ are second to none.There maybe some familiar faces contained within it and some not so well known... However, together they create an entertaining and thought provoking content stream that I can't do without on a daily basis.Seriously consider adding them to your circles :) #circleshare  2013-05-10 10:51:3613625219

Slavo Herman180I'd like to share with you the circle in which a little surprisingly I discovered my name. It is a circle with people who got one nomination to "Best of Google Plus 2012" created as the Circle No. 3 by +Kurt Smith.(He also created two more circles, No. 1 and 2, containing people with more nominations - you can find them at http://goo.gl/tAePD and http://goo.gl/7IBkV respectively :)2013-01-07 16:40:4448423115

Trever McGhee18,273+Take2seconds to click the add button on this circle!Last week +Kurt Smith asked people to name 5 people they thought should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'.  He received 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.We were honored to be among them, so we've created two circles to honor those chosen.This is the second of 2 circles from that list.Their all worthy of a follow .. a circle  to see what they bring to your stream.Check them out for a week...keep the ones that you like at the end of the week and then put the rest aside for another time :-))))People always ask me to add them or another person to the next circle when I share circles from other people to help them connect with others...Well I can't add you to their circle but what I can do is create another circle for you.So if you would like to be in the next one or would like to recommend someone,1st. please leave a comment of why you or they should be in the next circle, why people should circle you back.2nd. please share this circle to the public stream to help these people connect with others.I'll create a circle once a week with your suggestion.P.S. if your in the above circle and would like to be in the next one, just let me know. #bestofgoogleplus   #bestofgoogleplus2012   #circle   #circles   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircles   #sharedmycircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #publicshare   #publiccircles   #publicsharedcircles   #publiccirclesproject   #addmetoyourcircles   #awesomecircle   #awesomeness   #awesomepeople   #awesomecircle  +Circles 2013-01-02 20:58:1649052430
Kurt Smith21,124Here's The 'Best of Google Plus 2012' Circle Share (Circle 3 of 3)Last week I asked other plussers to name 5 Plussers they think should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'. They nominated others based on what they think makes a really good Google Plusser - original & quality content; makes you think, laugh, & enjoy Google Plus more; engages with others; shares and helps others; etc. We got 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.This is the third of 3 Circle Shares of those named the 'Best of Google Plus' - this circle contains those who got 2-3 votes. These are plussers other plussers think are among the Best on Google Plus and I believe we should all circle and consider following them because other quality plussers we can trust recommend following them.Like the other circles I've curated ('Thought Provokers' & 'Plussers Who Give A Boost') you can only get in these circles on the recommendation of another plusser (no "add me" going on here). So this is a quality group that should be recognized for making Google Plus better for all of us.Let's encourage quality on G+ and the best way we can do that is to Add & Share these circles. It took some work to put this together, so the best 'thank you' you can give me (and the nominees) is to add, share and encourage your followers to do the same.Circle 1 (those who got 4+ nominations): http://goo.gl/tAePDCircle 2 (those who 2-3 nominations): http://goo.gl/7IBkVWondering who nominated you?

Lee Smallwood17,450For my Friday #CircleShare  this week, I wanted to intro you to a small circle of people I couldn't be without here on G+. They not just a bunch of typical people, but are personalities that have fantastic opinions and ideals.Some you may know already and some you might not ... but either way you should get to know them better. They enrich my stream here on G+ and I know that the engagement you'll have with them will brighten up your day.The only thing I would like to increase is the amount of time I have to spend with them... #dunbarCircle  2012-10-26 15:31:1515730319
Lee Smallwood16,997This is the first time I'm sharing this circle - It's my #Dunbar  circlehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunbar's_numberThey're quite an eclectic bunch (which is why I can't do without their content and banter) on a day-to-day basis.If you haven't met them on G+ yet - be sure to say hello to them :)As a follow up to this, create a #DunbarCircle  and add a link in the comments below - for the people you couldn't do without.NOTE No precise value has been proposed for Dunbar's number. It has been proposed to lie between 100 and 230, with a commonly used value of 150So you can decide how many plussers are in yours :) #circleshare  2012-10-12 16:18:1715048525
John Kellden10,222Social Curation, part 6: Social Curators v3"...what watch? Ten watch. Such much?"Subterranean Homesick Blues:+Bradley HorowitzPearltrees:+Oliver StarrSocial curation - an evolving set of buckets:1. Social media - which to me boils down to getting your story, your brand straight in this new networked, participatory, two-way market.2. Social business - including a large part of the startup scene, and also things like hackerspaces, 3D-printing, large companies struggling to adopt a new more social culture...3. Social signal - the whole analysis/symthesis thing, where we'll help each other understand what is going on, whether deeper learning, social learning, peer learning, informal learning, a quiet pervasive revolution happening as we speak.4. Social practices - where we share success stories, business cases , hangouts and experiential stuff, assessing what works and what doesnt.5. Social innovation and transformation - the difficult, complex, slightly less accessible corner - how global and local intersect, design thinking, narrative, sensemaking, semiosis, patterns, culture, transitions. I wouldn't be at all surprised if you all would find the odd post from me here. :)Social cocreation is da shiznitMy intention here is to honour two principles - one, the cocreated nature of this circle, since it is all about social curation. Two, if at all possible, provide an as rich and diverse signal as possible, for the benefit of all other Google plussers in need of our various social curation insights.Social curation: how we shape our content and how it shapes us in returnThere is quite probably as many different takes on social curation as there are people in this circle, and then some.Whither Dunbar? - What size circles?Keeping this circle under two hundred people thereabouts, might be a good size for new google plussers should they want to derive benefit from the gathered collective intelligence from this bunch of social curators.2012-09-26 07:52:4314620522

Hike the Inca Trail
A winding footpath climbs from the depths of the Urubamba Valley, through vaporous cloud forests, alongside the ruins of ancient way stations. For the Incas, this roadway was the main entry point to the exquisite estate of Machu Picchu. For the thousands of travellers who hike the trail every year, it is a pilgrimage - a rugged four-day trek through sumptuous scenery, and the final stop is the most spectacular archaeological site in Peru.

Everyone knows about the "Man in the Moon." Few realize there is another man trapped in the sun, and that he is furious andterrible to behold.
A NASA space probe caught a rare glimpse of the agonized prisoner last week, peering from his hellish confinement with fire-spewing eyes and a demented leer.
The space agency says about the image:
Active regions on the sun combined to look something like a jack-o-lantern’s face on Oct. 8, 2014. The image was captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, which watches the sun at all times from its orbit in space.
The active regions in this image appear brighter because those are areas that emit more light and energy.  They are markers of an intense and complex set of magnetic fields hovering in the sun’s atmosphere, the corona.

Category 4 Hurricane Gonzalo aims for Bermuda
HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) — Hurricane Gonzalo barreled toward Bermuda as a powerful Category 4 storm Wednesday, prompting people in the tiny archipelago to shore-up homes and rush to clear trees and power lines knocked down days earlier by a tropical storm.
Gonzalo had top sustained winds of 130 mph (215 kph) and was about 640 miles (1,025 kilometers) south-southwest of Bermuda. It was moving northwest at 12 mph (19 kph) and was expected to be near Bermuda early Friday, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami.
A hurricane watch was issued and would likely become a warning by late Wednesday, Dennis Feltgen, a National Hurricane Center meteorologist, said by phone.
Feltgen said it was too early to tell whether the hurricane would actually hit Bermuda, but he warned people to be prepared for severe weather.

Search for sea life
Off the Paracas Peninsula, on the country's southern coast, the small rocky outcroppings known as the Islas Ballestas don't look like much from a distance. But hop in a boat and you'll see a riot of wildlife: honking sea lions, preening Humboldt penguins and colonies of Peruvian boobies. The islands are known as the 'poor man's Galapagos' for good reason.

Soar over ancient glyphs
One of the earth's greatest mysteries sits quietly on the arid Peruvian coast. The Nazca Lines consist of more than 70 ancient glyphs of animals and other shapes that are so big they can only be seen from the air. No one knows their purpose. For an incredible out-of-body experience, soar in a light-aircraft over these pre-Columbian pictograms in the early morning hours.

Descend into a majestic canyon
The Cañón Del Colca is a wonderland of Andean panoramas: a deep canyon studded with idyllic villages and mountainsides carved by ancient terraces. Oh, and did we mention the condors that soar on the wind currents? Visitors can explore the canyon on day hikes or multiday treks. But there's one thing no traveller should miss while here: the local delicacy known as chupe de camarones, a spicy shrimp bisque.

Trek the Andes
The Cordillera Blanca, a majestic mountain range at the heart of Peru, can make the most devoted couch potato want to strap on a pack and go. A network of craggy peaks covered in dollops of gleaming white snow draw dedicated high-altitude trekkers who wind through alpine lakes and diminutive Andean villages. If the altitude doesn't take your breath away, the vistas certainly will.

Sandboard giant dunes
Huacachina, a tiny oasis in the southern Peruvian desert, offers one of the country's more unusual adrenaline rushes: the opportunity to motor to the top of a dune the size of a small building, strap on a board, then fly down the face of a towering wall of sand. Not up for boarding? Take on the dunes in a buggy instead.

Visit mysterious ruins
The Andes are dotted with the remnants of ancient cities. Kuelap ranks among the most magnificent: a walled citadel built by the Chachapoyas people on the crest of a mountain in the northern Peruvian cloud forest. The views of the Utcubamba Valley are staggering, the ruins are unusual, and the journey here through timeless rural settlements is unforgettable.

Wander through the Amazon
The Amazon Basin is known for its intense biodiversity and riotous rainforest wilderness. Parque Nacional Manu protects one of its wildest, most remote corners. Located at the watershed of the Rio Manu, one of the many tributaries that eventually leads to the Amazon River, this wet web of rivers is a feast for wildlife spotting - from tapirs to ocelots to flocks of brilliant, cackling macaws.

Hike the Inca Trail
A winding footpath climbs from the depths of the Urubamba Valley, through vaporous cloud forests, alongside the ruins of ancient way stations. For the Incas, this roadway was the main entry point to the exquisite estate of Machu Picchu. For the thousands of travellers who hike the trail every year, it is a pilgrimage - a rugged four-day trek through sumptuous scenery, and the final stop is the most spectacular archaeological site in Peru.

Overnight on an island
In Andean belief, Lake Titicaca is the birthplace of the sun. Lay your eyes on its sapphire-colored waters and it's hard not to feel a certain magic. Spending the night on one of the lake's islands is the best way to experience this place, with its small rural settlements where life is lived according to the rhythm of the seasons. The best part? Sunset surrounded by the lake's gleaming waters.

Three contiguous penthouse suites at Manhattan’s Residences at the Ritz-Carlton are being offered together for $118.5 million. This is the highest asking price for a downtown home in New York, according to the Wall Street Journal. And the combined 15,434 square feet would be one of the largest single-family residences in Manhattan, though Curbed is doubtful anyone will bite.
The suites comprise the building’s entire top two floors, with the potential for 12 or more bedrooms and 15 or more bathrooms. Ryan Serhant of Nest Seekers International holds the listing.

$135 million
1011 North Beverly Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA
While Le Palais Royal is a new entrant to the most expensive homes list, The Beverly House is a veteran. First listed for $165 million in 2007, the estate’s price was reduced to $95 million in 2010. It was then advertised as a rental before being listed for $115 million in 2013. The current listing, held by Jeff Hyland of Hilton & Hyland, is priced at $135 million.
The home is located in the heart of Beverly Hills and was once owned by publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst and actress Marion Davies. The Kennedys are also said to have honeymooned here in the ’50s.

It was also the first private home in the country to have an IMAX home theater, starting a trend in the luxury market.
Property records show the home is owned by Robert N. Jacobson, though the beneficiary of the trust is reportedly Robert Pereira, founder of Massachusetts-based Middlesex Corp. William P.D. Pierce of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate holds the listing.

Zlatni Rat, Croatia
The sand of Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape) beach in Croatia is continually on the move, as wind, tides and currents sculpt the beach into ever-varying shapes. (Don’t worry — these changes are subtle and sunbathers are not washed away). The beach is a sand spit extending from a promontory near Bol, on the southern coast of the island of Brac. The same winds that subtly change the shape of the spit are the fuel for windsurfing adventures.

Goblin Valley State Park, Utah
Goblins? Hoodoos? The names fit these mysterious-looking rock formations in Goblin Valley State Park in southern Utah and surrounded on three sides by Canyonlands and Capitol Reef national parks and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Sandstone erosion made the shapes; the small, spherical shapes of the goblins combine with the hoodoos, rock pinnacles in the shape of mushrooms, to give the landscape an eerie edge.

Spotted Lake, Canada
Many minerals are found in high concentrations in Spotted Lake; that causes the phenomenon that gives the lake its name. Spots form during summer when much of the water evaporates, leaving the minerals, which harden and form walkways among the spots. The water’s color is determined by the unique combination of minerals. The site, near Osoyoos in British Columbia, is owned by the First Nations and is not open to the public. However, it can be easily seen from Highway 3, which runs past the lake.

Eye of Africa, Mauritania
The Eye of Africa — whose official name, the Richat Structure, seems so mundane in comparison — was spotted in central Mauritania by astronauts on early space missions. In the expanse of the Western Sahara Desert, the formation has a diameter of about 30 miles. At first, scientists thought a meteorite had hit the Earth, causing this impression. But now it is believed to be a symmetrical uplift that erosion has revealed. No one has explained yet why it is circular.

Moaning Cavern, Vallecito, Calif.
The sounds echoing through the cavern might be unnervingly like a human moan. But the sound is created by water dripping into holes in the bottom of the formation, which causes a drumming sound that echoes off the walls and is carried out of the Moaning Cavern's natural entrance by the wind. Gold miners came upon this cavern in 1851 (it is near Angels Camp), but it has been known far longer; some of the oldest human remains known in the Americas were found here.

Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
Salar de Uyuni is a magical place: When covered by water, the world’s largest salt flat becomes a mirror, and anyone walking across it appears to be walking on clouds. The salt crust, which covers 4,086 square miles in southwestern Bolivia at 11,995 feet above sea level, is nearly flat, which makes it ideal for calibrating the altimeters of satellites. Salar de Uyuni's origins lie in prehistoric lakes; it is a major breeding ground for several species of flamingoes.

Moeraki Boulders, New Zealand
The Moeraki Boulders are a big attraction, found on Koekohe Beach near Moeraki on New Zealand’s coast. The huge, gray, spherical stones formed in sediment on the sea floor 60 million years ago and were revealed by shoreline erosion. Or, if you take the local Maori perspective, they are the remains of calabashes (gourds), kumaras (sweet potatoes) and eel baskets that washed ashore when the legendary canoe Araiteuru was wrecked. Either way, the boulders, some of which stand alone and some in clusters, can weigh several tons and measure 10 feet across.

Shilin Stone Forest, China
An old local saying says, “If you have visited Kunming without seeing the Stone Forest, you have wasted your time.” The Shilin Stone Forest covers 96,000 acres with large and small stands of stone “trees.” They actually are karst formations that stand on the earth like stalagmites and looking like petrified trees. Believed to be more than 270 million years old, the stone trees emerged as limestone eroded. Legend says this is the birthplace of Ashima, who was forbidden to marry the man she loved, drowned and turned to stone in the forest. The Torch Festival celebrates her each year.

Mud Volcanoes, Azerbaijan
Take what you know about volcanoes and imagine mud volcanoes. Rather than hot lava, steam, ash and rocks, mud volcano eruptions involve cold mud, water and gas. Nearly 400 mud volcanoes, more than half of the world total, are found in Azerbaijan and the Caspian Sea. The most common have several small cones or vents and average about 13 feet high. Just be aware: In 2001, a mud volcano about nine miles from Baku, Azerbaijan’s capital, erupted with enough force to send flames hundreds of feet into the sky and spew tons of mud.

Great Blue Hole, Belize
In 1971, Jacques Cousteau boldly sailed Calypso to the Great Blue Hole, investigated and declared it one of the 10 best diving sites in the world. It’s a large underwater sinkhole near the center of Lighthouse Reef, about 62 miles from Belize City. So much for the mystery. The circular hole is nearly 1,000 feet across and 410 feet deep, boasting underwater caves, fantastic coral formations and many species of tropical fish darting through the clear water.

Split Apple Rock, New Zealand
Why do so many insist on clambering atop one side or the other of Split Apple Rock, while the less athletically inclined relax at its core? The formation is a big hit with visitors to Abel Tasman National Park on the South Island of New Zealand. It is just one of the highlights in the park, which was founded in 1942, 300 years after Dutch seafarer Abel Tasman became the first European to visit New Zealand. Tourists are lured by golden sandy beaches and rocky outcrops and the likelihood of spotting many birds.

The Giants Causeway, Northern Ireland
If an Irishman tells you that Finn McCool built the Giants Causeway so two feuding giants could settle their differences, check for a twinkle in his eyes, for perhaps he has been telling you a folk tale. Volcanic activity 60 million years ago created these rugged, symmetrical rock formations, seemingly steppingstones that lead into mists and legend. In 1693, Sir Richard Bulkeley, a fellow at Trinity College in Dublin, presented a paper on this “natural curiosity” near Bushmills in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The arguing began: Was this made by men with picks? Was this nature’s handiwork? Did a giant place these steppingstones? It wasn’t until 1771 that the origin of the causeway was officially attributed to volcanic activity.

Pamukkale, Turkey
Cotton Castle, Pamukkale’s translated name, is a wildly popular tourist site. Seventeen hot-water springs in the area spill out water in temperatures ranging from 95 degrees to 212 degrees, which contains a high concentration of calcium bicarbonate. The water flows off a cliff, cools and hardens into calcium deposits that form terraces, as white as cotton and bright enough to be easily seen from the town of Denizli, which is on the opposite side of the valley, 12 miles away. These terraces, which continue to grow, hold pools of water. Soakers are welcome; shoes are not, to protect the deposits.

Mono Lake, California
“In the middle distance there rests upon the desert plain what appears to be a wide sheet of burnished metal, so even and brilliant is its surface. It is Lake Mono.” So wrote Israel C. Russell in the “Quaternary History of the Mono Valley” in 1889. Much of the ancient saline lake hasn’t changed. Mono Lake, which covers more than 70 square miles, has no fish. It is believed the lake could be 1 million to 3 million years old, and it is among the oldest lakes in North America. One thing that has changed here as the landscape makes the transition from the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the Great Basin Desert is the appearance of tufa, unusual rock formations that crowd the shore. The tufa towers are limestone and grow underwater; they are exposed because the lake grew more shallow when water diversions started in 1941

Whaling Away

"At the now abandoned Grytviken whaling station in South Georgia, this lone king penguin stood motionless for several hours, like a solitary sentinel, guarding memories of atrocities past, ensuring that no one forgot what happened here," writes Your Shot contributor Douglas Gimesy. The station processed tens of thousands of slaughtered whales during its nearly 60 years in operation.
"After about two hours of gentle wind, the breeze stopped, it fell silent, and the snow started to fall, making the moment even more poignant."

Fastest amphibious vehicle
Amphibious car manufacturer WaterCar set the record for the fastest dual-purpose amphibious vehicle. The WaterCar Python is powered by a large LS engine from a Corvette, has a top speed of 60 mph in the water, and can launch from zero to 60 mph in an impressive 4.5 seconds on land. The price for all this performance? Well, the Python was a one-off model, but WaterCar would be happy to sell you the more utility-focused Panther amphibious vehicle for the tidy sum of $155,000.

Farthest golf shot caught in a moving car
For one of the more unusual records, former F1 driver David Coulthard and pro golfer Jake Shepherd teamed up to set a very specific automotive record. The intent was to see how far and how fast a driver would have to go in order to catch a golf ball hit with a driver. Shepard launched the ball at 177 mph just as Coulthard set off in pursuit in a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster. Coulthard reached 118 mph and traveled 275 meters before catching the ball in the cockpit of the SLS.

Fastest caravan tow
Blazing down the dry lakebed at El Mirage, California, Jason Sands of Diesel Power magazine set the record for the fastest caravan tow speed. The trailer, a Carson Kalispell, had only upgraded tires for the high-speed run, while the tow vehicle, a 2006 GMC Sierra 2500 HD, was tweaked to put more than 1000 horsepower to the wheels. With the immensely powerful truck rocketing down the lakebed, the trap speed was clocked at a blistering 141.99 mph, breaking the previous record of 139 mph.

Ankles, beware. In March of 2014, Nic Case broke the R/C land speed record for the third time with his custom-built R/C car. Running on a long stretch of runway, Case clocked the bright orange blur at just over an incredible 188 miles per hour, faster than all but the most powerful and expensive performance cars on the road. Case had previously set and broken the records at two different speeds, first at 161.76 mph and the second at 171.97 mph.
