Russell Miller5,935This circle has slightly changed its composition in the last few weeks.  A few were added, and sadly a few removed too.  I appreciate all of the people in my circles, but this circle is full of people who usually post really good stuff (far above average).  Stuff that makes you think, stuff that makes you laugh, and occasionally stuff that makes you hit the mute button.You can't go wrong with this circle.  In my opinion, anyway.2014-11-27 04:55:3141000
Russell Miller5,853This is the circle that I presently have as "Good Posters".  It doesn't mean anyone in my other circles necessarily isn't, it's just what this circle is at this particular point in time.If you circle these people, you're pretty sure to get mostly good posts and very little bullshit (though I make no guarantees, any one could go nuts one night and completely trash everything. :) )I'm including myself because I'm narcissistic that way. :) #circleshare  2014-11-01 01:04:0738102

Theres a little something here for everyone. Theres a few OGplussers here that have been on G+ since way way way way way back in the pioneer days of 2011 then theres plenty of new people, awesome people post tons of cool stuff like really really really killer places to eat, drink and be festive all over Southern California. Yeah good stuff, good people! So here ya go Google+, Remember I don't always share circles but when I do its Fucking Epic!~Lira~circle up!2013-09-19 22:06:24500201417

Dan Soto56,122Long Overdue Circle ShareFirst, and foremost, this is not a scientific endeavor.  Most of these were chosen by the "relevance" factor that Google uses but I would not have included them if they weren't relevant to me.  The others were hand picked from the rest of the people I'm following that are either;a) interesting to meb) loyal engagers on my postsc) friendsEither way, you can't go wrong with this circle.Add it now to spice up your streamNote: Many of you already have many of these people in your circles already.  Add it it anyway as there might be a few that you don't have.Also, there is to be no "butthurt" over not being included in this circle.  I'm the only one allowed to that :)ENJOY!2013-01-18 00:46:3115036922

Jane Ellen0Name this circle what you want, but I pulled people from across the board, and pond.  If you're new to G+ or bored with your stream you'll find some G+ heavyweights here, and some folks that I feel lucky enough to have discovered. Well, they liven up my day anyway.  I have hung out with the majority of most in this circle.  They are artists, scientists, writers, singers, social media experts, teachers, IT people, and I don't even know what all else.  But they are engagers.  And they all have their own sense of self.  They post what they like in their own stream.  Which is how I approach mine.  If you like it, you engage and you keep reading.  If you don't, you uncircle and move on to someone who is more suitable to your tastes.  If there is one common thread to all of them, I tend to err on the side of sarcasm.  Keep that in mind.  Happy reading.2012-08-28 17:47:441019412
Jack C Crawford33,668Top 500 Profiles of people who always have something beautiful to say.  (Well, not always ...)  There are two buckets in this circle.  Those who interact with me all the time ... and those who I follow just because I think they are amazing.You can't miss by adding these folks.  Worst case, if any of them misbehave, you can uncircle, ignore, block, report, etc.  Gosh, that sounds really harsh ... I really doubt any of these wonderful people will require such action.Just add them.  Most of them are truly amazing ... ;-)2012-08-06 04:35:125011074477
Robert „Big Daddy“ Mosko1,841I don't normally share circles.  However I was planning to share this circle tomorrow for #circlesharefriday  .  I will not be available tomorrow, but this is a good thing for me.This circle is highly diverse in views and humor.  It is full of wonderful people who share and engage.  I hope this circle will enhance your G+ experience as much as it does mine.2012-06-21 20:21:462431205

Sebastian Hiernaux1,505Ever since a popular G member added me to a circle he later shared I have seen my followers grow 100x ... so I'm now doing the same thing.Yesterday I read an article that indicated that G+ gets really interested when your followers reach around 300 ... so I want to help other people enjoy this network as much as I do by sharing and hoping you add them to your circles.This circle I am sharing is full of funny and interesting people... its my "personal favorites" circle.Hope you find it useful...2012-06-05 16:00:01362516
Kevin Medeiros3,101Yeah yeah, this is a huge circle to share. These guys and girls are a bunch of geeks. Geeks of what type you might ask? Well, of all sorts..you'll just have to find out. I've gone through and weeded out some of the inactive users myself in order to stay under the 500 person limit. These guys make up a big portion of my stream and never fail to keep me informed about awesome shit.You may also be asking why I didn't sort them out into sub-geek categories? The answer to that is because I'm not your damn secretary :-)Just check'em out :)2012-05-26 19:20:2947711714
Chad LaFarge9,931Top 50 Most Relevant, and Why You Don't Need All of ThemFor whatever reason (obvious for many, not-so-obvious for others), Google has determined that these are the most "relevant" people in my circles. Undoubtedly it factors in interactions and shared circl...istas (?!?).These are among the people from whom I look forward to hearing and seeing in my stream daily.Do yourself a favor and screen them in a new circle rather than adding them to a circle that already has your important engagers.I say this because I don't want you to be stuck with people from whom I like to hear in case you happen to learn that I have terrible taste in content. Add the circle independent of any other, and go look at the posts from its members. Remove those that don't post content that you find compelling.Do this with any shared circle you add.Your stream can only be as amazing as you allow it be through your efforts and exercising your judgement, not simply accepting someone else's shared circle blindly.I hope this is helpful.2012-04-19 04:45:2350401
Lee Smallwood8,954Want to share the 2nd of 2 circles of Engaging People here on G+ I love their content, the way the engage and I recommend you step and say Hello to them :)Have a great weekend all :)2012-04-13 17:23:5433731622
Scot Duke2,583Share My Circle The Best of G+It's time again to help out the Newbies to G+ by giving them a leg up on finding the people in G+ who are interactive, responsive and down right COOL!I hear there are a few million more here since my last so I am sure they are probably sitting there scratching their head with a look of confusion on what is going on. I remember when I got here, that was my thoughts. Wish there had been someone then sharing quality Circles.So here is my Inter-circle of real live people. If you are not in this circle here might be why.To be placed in my most cherished circle of friends you have had to: -Be someone I know personally-Have at least made one comment made to any of my posts, -Have a nice headshot photo,-Have a full profile-Make a number of original posts-Understand how social networking works.Sounds simple doesn't it! Well it is and how you should look to building your own circle. Here is your start. If your current circles are not producing the interaction you are looking for you might need to flush them and start over with this one.Warning: If you load this circle into your account to start spamming these people I can only warn you these people are well trained at using the Block for Spam button. Plus, there are a few people from G+ hidden in this circle who are very proud of their creation and I have actually witnessed them removing Knuckleheads like a bouncer at a bar.Have fun socializing..it will pay off ten times more than just gawking or becoming a Knucklehead.2012-03-20 12:07:3131326715
Rehan Ahmad8,835Best Engagers on Google✚having less than 4k followers; chosen by communityI had no idea to discover such wonderful folks in such huge numbers who are worth getting attention and exposure to the community on G+. Here is link to the original post on which people proposed their best Engagers: https://plus.google.com/u/0/101130656339668533532/posts/f7ou4Hrtp9FWe want to spread the message of equality and friendship, we want to make this space wonderful for everyone. Best Thing about this circle is that it does not contain any of the influencers, but each influencer taken deep interest in making it happen. So have fun with circling all new amazing Plussers and rock your stream.People who should be included but are not included unfortunately +Susan McIntire +carolann O'Connell +Andrey Vlasoff My Apologies: If I have no included the people you had proposed in this circle because their followers were more than 4k limit.

Dan Leveille23,227Google+ Users the Community Couldn't Live WithoutA Community-Curated CircleWith suggestions from hundreds of people, these are the Google+ users who the Google+ community "couldn't live without." Their content, personality, and overall presence on Google+ provides irreplaceable value to other members of the community.Two days ago, I asked the question: "Who are 3 Google+ users you couldn't live without?" After hundreds of comments came in, here's the Circle that everyone created!Original post: goo.gl/P4D8HFull details: Every [valid] suggestion was added to this Circle. Suggestions made on reshares of the original post were included unless the post was not share publicly. When people suggested more than three members, I chose the first three who were not already included in the Circle. Self-nominations were not included unless another user recommended that person. Pages were not included unless they represented a single person (for example, celebrities). I may do a Page version soon!#circleshare #circles #publiccircles2012-02-26 01:19:07305514868

Billy Wilson30,060Interactive People on G+: Part OneYesterday I asked people who they thought was the most interactive person they have found on G+ and I got a lot of responses. Since people from many different communities responded I ended up with a sampling of people from across a lot of the G+ world. Since there was interest in having a circle created of the people nominated in my threads I made this circle. I'm still working through all of the nominations and will have another circle ready once I'm done working through my threads. You can still nominate people on this post: https://plus.google.com/105706178492556563330/posts/bTjXGJcRNcK The original post hit the 500 comment maximum. You can also nominate on this circle share post as well. #CircleShare2012-01-31 20:54:52501249133190

Virtual Brain Trust Cooperative440Virtual Brain Trust Cooperative Circle. This is being posted mostly as a thank you to the people who have followed our new Google+ page. In the brief time since we set this up, more than 400 people have added it to their circles and are following our posts. Clearly something we are doing has inspired, or at least intrigued, a good number of people here. We really appreciate this vote of confidence and will continue to explore ways we can use a bit of the extra brain power we all have to help each other. These projects will be announced on the VBT Google+ page, so be sure to add that to your circles if you have not yet done so, and also on the network we are building at http://VirtualBrainTrust.org. Some of our more advanced projects will be lauhched on that site, so please consider adding a profile there if your interest is more than casual. It is possible this may be one of the last times we are able to share this circle - we are getting close to Google's 500 member limit and shared circles have limited utility for what we are doing anyway. Still, there are some great people to follow here, They all believe in the spirit of cooperation and have offered to at least consider using a bit of their extra brainpower - their skills, intelligence and creativity to help other people. If you are looking for people who are both smart and considerate, this is a great place to start.2011-12-09 16:58:254291798

This is, in part, why Scott Walker is a winner. He didn't have to sell anyone on the increasing radicalism and danger of union positions...the unions did that sales job all by themselves.

Mind control - LOL.

It makes me giggle to hear socialists/communists cry that the Democrats are not liberal enough...I can't stop smiling. At least they are honest about wanting to destroy America.

The author should go get something to eat...if they can find a restaurant open that can afford the ridiculous $15 per hour wage.

To hell with Common Core...JUST PASS THEM ALL!

This is the next logical step for public education in this country - just throw up your hands and just pass them through regardless of whether they learned anything.

My kids take the California high school graduation test WHEN THEY ARE SOPHOMORES!  If you don't pass (meaning, you are so brain-addled that you could barely work at McDonalds), you get another chance next year and the year after.

If a test is designed so that kids who have been in high school not even two full years can pass the minimum skills test required to get out of high school, what does that say about the education they are receiving?

Hence...just pass them all.

Voter ID laws have been decisively and repeatedly found to be legal and constitutional. It is time that each state put this in place.

As I have always said, and continue to say...SCOTUS has long ago declared voter ID legal, as long as it provides equal and fair access.

The fact that they refused to hear the Wisconsin case again demonstrates that.  

As liberal Justice John Paul Stevens stated in Crawford v. Marion County, the case the upheld Indiana's voter ID law: 

"The relevant burdens here are those imposed on eligible voters who lack photo identification cards that comply with SEA 483.[2] Because Indiana's cards are free, the inconvenience of going to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, gathering required documents, and posing for a photograph does not qualify as a substantial burden on most voters' right to vote, or represent a significant increase over the usual burdens of voting. The severity of the somewhat heavier burden that may be placed on a limited number of persons—e.g., elderly persons born out-of-state, who may have difficulty obtaining a birth certificate—is mitigated by the fact that eligible voters without photo identification may cast provisional ballots that will be counted if they execute the required affidavit at the circuit court clerk’s office. Even assuming that the burden may not be justified as to a few voters, that conclusion is by no means sufficient to establish petitioners’ right to the relief they seek."

The case of voter ID's constitutionality is settled. ___Voter ID laws have been decisively and repeatedly found to be legal and constitutional. It is time that each state put this in place.

Re-birthday?

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of the Irish folks out there - or rather to all the folks who pretend to be Irish today.  However, this day has a different meaning for me.

One year ago today, I essentially died.  My heart had stopped beating, I was not breathing, and I lay motionless on my living room floor.  The fact that I am here, in front of my laptop typing this is in itself a miracle.  My wife's term for today is my "re-birthday".

One year ago today, I faced my mortality in a much more confrontational way than I would have ever anticipated.  Full cardiac arrest was not on my to-do list at the age of 48, and it certainly was not on my family's list to be performing CPR and calling 911.  However, it got placed on all our lists for that day - and we had to deal with it.

Re-birthday?

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of the Irish folks out there - or rather to all the folks who pretend to be Irish today.  However, this day has a different meaning for me.

One year ago today, I essentially died.  My heart had stopped beating, I was not breathing, and I lay motionless on my living room floor.  The fact that I am here, in front of my laptop typing this is in itself a miracle.  My wife's term for today is my "re-birthday".

One year ago today, I faced my mortality in a much more confrontational way than I would have ever anticipated.  Full cardiac arrest was not on my to-do list at the age of 48, and it certainly was not on my family's list to be performing CPR and calling 911.  However, it got placed on all our lists for that day - and we had to deal with it.

I recently read a piece by Hoda Kotb on her cancer diagnosis and how she just wanted to keep it to herself and not talk about it with anyone.  A stranger on a plane pointed out to her that her disease was part of her and it was an opportunity to share her experience and knowledge with others.  I completely agree - my heart attack is part of me, part of my life, part of my experience.  If any part of that experience can help someone else, then it would be selfish not to share it.  Exposing your own weaknesses just might encourage someone else to take action before it is too late.

I did most of the right things - I had lost weight, I was eating well, I was exercising every day, I had never smoked cigarettes - but I did not see a doctor regularly.  With my age and family history, that was a potentially fatal choice.  Every male on my father's side of the family had died of a massive heart attack before the age of 60 except for my Dad - who had quadruple bypass surgery at the age of 59 and would have died without it.  Male bravado, stubborness - call it what you will, I did not think I was going to have the same issues.  Boy, was I wrong!

What did I learn from this experience, now a year down the line?

1. That we are ALL very, very mortal and that death is inescapable and can come quite suddenly.  Focus on what is truly important in your life - the rest is just noise and distraction.

2.  Your family and the time you have with them is the most precious gift given to you.  Don't waste it on things that wrongly take from that time.  For most men and increasingly for women, the pursuit of the almighty dollar or career is the biggest draw away from your family.  Yes - we have to work.  You don't have to work at the expense of your family, however.  It was a wise man who said "No one on their death bed says 'I wish I spent more time at the office'".  Be nice to them...you may need them to give you CPR and call 911 for you!

3.  Your relationship with food is far more important than you think.  Make it a healthy relationship - and get help if you struggle in this area.

4.  Keep moving.  I don't care if you run a marathon or vacuum the house with vigor - just keep moving.  Strike the words "sedentary", "couch potato", and "lazy" from your life.  Instead of calling your coworker 2 floors above you at work, take a walk up the stairs and talk to them in person.  Your body will appreciate the effort - and so will your coworker!

5.  Enjoy downtime.  Take a break, take a vacation, unplug from the world and the stress that comes with it.  All work and no play makes Jack or Jill a dead person.

6.  Manage your health.  You know what you are feeling, and you have gut instincts that are quite often right.  We have the greatest health care system in the world and most of the best doctors in the world here in the US, but they are not perfect or infallible.  Get informed about your health, ask questions, and challenge things you disagree with or don't understand.  Get a second opinion.  See your doctor regularly and establish a relationship in whatever way you can.

7.  Pay attention to your body.  Note the changes in your body - new aches or pains, new symptoms.  Don't panic, but write them down if they concern you and discuss them with your doctor.

8.  Pay attention to the biggest risks.  Heart disease kills more men AND WOMEN than any other problem by a long shot.  It is not my intention to minimize other diseases and health problems, but your heart is your biggest risk - not your breasts, not your prostate, not your colon, and not your lungs, so don't neglect it!

9.  Share your weaknesses and concerns with others.  Do something with your experiences.  Get involved with a cause that ties back to your life, find a way to encourage people to get help or learn something that could help others.  Tell your story - it will resonate with someone.

I am celebrating my "re-birthday" today by going to the cardiologist for my 1 year checkup.  I know, I know...woohoo!  I can't think of a better way to celebrate...

If she is going to continue to press on, she needs to be squeaky clean - there better not be even a slight odor of scandal.

Who am I kidding? She's a CLINTON!

If you followed Twitter on Tuesday, it is safe to say that Clinton will not be getting the sort of treatment she needs to run a celebrity campaign just by virtue of being Clinton. TMZ and Gawker, which are generally thought of as having a liberal tilt, helped break the story. "SNL" lit into her in a way that it arguably still hasn’t for Obama. Again, I don’t think this is because these outlets are inherently pro-Obama. He just played a role almost flawlessly, and reaps the benefits from time to time.

She will have to earn favorable coverage, and she isn’t doing it so far. If it keeps up, not only will she not have an advantage in how the “intangibles” stack up, she might have a disadvantage that pushes her below what the fundamentals suggest.

A few months ago, I wouldn’t have doubted that she was up to the task. I’m still not convinced that she isn’t. But for the first time in a while, I’m not sure.___If she is going to continue to press on, she needs to be squeaky clean - there better not be even a slight odor of scandal.
