Graeme McRae32,843Graeme's All New Circle of Active GooglePlussers! . . . This is a curated circle of active people on Google+ If you add this circle, you will see lots of new posts in your stream from this circle. If you’re in the circle (you’ll know ‘cause I notified you) then you should reshare it to get more followers. It's a circle of people I started following in June, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of weeks since then. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream, read on. . .How did these people get in the circle?. . . They must have posted something interesting, at least once, because I don't follow people unless they post something interesting. By now, you're probably not surprised by the number of people on G+ whose pages are full of repeated posts, videos without comments, and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since they were added?. . . After I add someone, I keep them in the circle of people I added around the same time. Then, several times a week, I go through all my circles and delete people who haven't posted (something visible to me) in the last 7 days. So the people who are left in the circle are consistent posters. That says something important about them, because consistency is a proxy for quality.Wait. What? Why is consistency is a proxy for quality?. . . I'll admit it: I don't have the science to back up that wild statement, but I'll tell you why I believe it to be true. People who post crap don't get a lot of followers, and the few followers they have don't bother to engage. After a while, the crappy-posting people start to think G+ is a ghost town, and they lose interest (or funding). On the other hand, the people who share (or re-share) interesting things get followers and engagement, slowly at first, but ever increasing, and this outpouring of love is what keeps them going. That's what I think anyway, and I'm sticking to it.People who share interesting things get lots of followers. . . This is another half-baked theory of mine, but hear me out. You might think this makes sense: Google+ offers suggestions of people to follow, especially to new users. Google+'s only source of names to suggest is other G+ers like yourself. The G+ers who have the most engagement are the ones Google+ knows will be good to follow, so these people get put out as suggestions more often, and some percentage of those suggestions are taken up. So the more engagement you have, the more Google+ will suggest you as a person to follow, and so the more followers you'll get. Completing the theory: the more interesting the stuff you share (or reshare), the more engagement you'll get, and hence the more followers you'll get.Do you punish people for unfollowing you by unfollowing them back?. . . No. Well, not directly. I only unfollow people who haven’t posted in the past 7 days. If you posted privately to your circles or your extended circles, and then you unfollow me, then I won’t see those posts any more, and I’ll assume you haven’t posted in the past 7 days, and, yes, I will unfollow you in that case. But if your posts are public, my methodology doesn’t care whether you follow me.Do you promise me there won’t be any spammers in this circle?. . . No, I can’t make that promise for 2 reasons. First, one person’s spam is another person’s interesting post. A plumbing contractor who posts fascinating details of pipe fitting, each with a link to his company’s website might go either way. Second, a clever spammer will intersperse interesting posts with annoying spam -- ma2014-09-29 03:08:05165211228

Vũ Phá0So, someone asked me if when would i share a themed circle. I share circles of mixes of different people because i think it brings diversity of the circle.Well people, should i share a themed circle? Well if i would, it would be a different circle though, and it would be less frequent than my other two circles.. (this circle and the snowball one)Well circle Yulia seems kind since she did not remove any people this time, instead she added some!So everyone, this circle obviously contains people. They seem to be pretty normal perhaps.  Hahaha! :-P.Well they engage with people and they have great content in their profiles. Some in here are photographers, philosophers, humorists and everything nice! These guys are not only suggested by me but also suggested by others. So yea, i believe it's a pretty great mix... :-DNote: If ever you want to suggest someone to be included in the future editions of this circle, just tag them in the comments!2014-02-06 16:37:31501537

Sorry but I'm confused with the new notification system in g+. It's a total mess. If I can't learn how to use it, I'm done with g+. These google cool guys/girls drink on the sly or are getting high with new designed drugs. Must be that google doesn't pay taxes that it's taking a toll on the Byzantine nature of their buggy system of work in a kindergarten environment.

Ancient Egyptian Coffin with 'Odd' Art
A 2,400-year-old Egyptian coffin with strange decorations offers insights into a tumultuous period of Egyptian history, under the rule of the Persian Empire. The coffin's amateurish and unusual imagery hint at the artist's lack of knowledge, likely because Persian rulers deported many of Egypt's artists.
"Radiocarbon dating shows that this Egyptian coffin dates back more than 2,400 years, to a time when the Persian Empire controlled Egypt."

Bicycles of World War 1
The role of bikes in the Great War
"Britain's first casualty of the war was a teenage reconnaissance cyclist John Parr, who was killed on 21 August, 1914, just days after the British Expeditionary Force arrived in France."
"The origins of the bicycle in warfare actually dated back some 40 years to the Franco-Prussian War (1870-71), when the French were the first to field troops on high-wheel bicycles. The British experimented with the bicycle’s use in the military during the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902) in South Africa."
"During the First World War, the Belgians, Germans, British and French all employed the bicycle to varying degrees of success."

Planned by Engineer Ellis S. Chesbrough from Boston
Chicago was raised over 4 feet in the 19th century to build its sewer
"In the middle of the 19th century, Chicago embarked on a quest to literally lift itself out of the mud. Water couldn't drain from the low-lying city, so its streets became impassable swamps. The most reasonable solution, Chicago decided, was just to raise the whole goddamn city by 4 to 14 feet."
"In other cases, whole buildings were dug up, put on logs, and rolled to a completely new location. A Scotsman visiting Chicago in 1868 observed, "Never a day passed during my stay in the city that I did not meet one or more houses shifting their quarters. One day I met nine."

For the Greeks it was a hell of a trip, dying was serious stuff.
The Underworld (Greek mythology)
(http://www.greekmythology.com/Myths/Places/The_Underworld/the_underworld.html)
"Geographically, the Underworld was considered to have been surrounded by five rivers: the Acheron (river of woe), the Cocytus (river of lamentation), the Phlegethon (river of fire), the Styx (river of unbreakable oath by which the gods took vows), and the Lethe (river of forgetfulness). Past the rivers, a diamond gate, guarded by Cerberus, formed the entrance to the kingdom. Deep within the kingdom, lay Hades' vast palace, full with guests."

"Upon death, a soul was led by Hermes near the entrance of the underworld, where the ferry awaited to carry it across the Acheron. There was a single ferry run by Charon, the boatman who took the souls across the river. Only those who could pay the fare with coins placed on their lips when buried, were granted passage; the rest were trapped between two worlds. After the boat ride, the souls entered through the gates; Cerberus allowed everyone to enter, but none to leave. The souls then appeared before a panel of three judges, Rhadamanthus, Minos, and Aeacus, who passed sentence based on their deeds during their previous life. The souls who were good went to the Elysian Fields, while the others were singled out for special treatment; Sisyphus and Tantalus are two examples of souls that were sentenced to be tormented for eternity."___

Ramasses II clutching prisoners by the hair (limestone bass-relief from Memphis)
Ramasses II ( r. 1279 - 1213 BC), third Pharaoh of the 19th dynasty, was ginger and a thuggish jerk, a cunning liar and a conceited, arrogantly pompous king with very bad taste.
About the Battle of Kadesh (1274 BC, when Ramasses was 20):
"The claims of Ramasses II that his army totally abandoned him, that he was left alone on a field of battle and single-handedly defeated the Hittites, of course is an utter load of rubbish" (Prof. Kent Weeks, Egyptologist)

Most Mammals Take 21 Seconds to Pee
A new study reveals that most mammals larger than rats urinate for about the same amount of time: 21 seconds. That's because their urethras are appropriately scaled to be a "flow-enhancing device," the researchers said.

An elephant's bladder can hold nearly 5 gallons (18 liters) of fluid, and yet, it can pee just as quickly as a cat. A new study reveals that most mammals larger than rats urinate for about the same amount of time: 21 seconds.___Via +Matt Hall

Pervitin
WWII Drug: The German Granddaddy of Crystal Meth
Crystal meth is notorious for being highly addictive and ravaging countless communities. But few know that the drug can be traced back to Nazi Germany, where it first became popular as a way to keep pilots and soldiers alert in battle during World War II.
"As enticing as the drug was, its long-term effects on the human body were just as devastating. Short rest periods weren't enough to make up for long stretches of wakefulness, and the soldiers quickly became addicted to the stimulant. And with addiction came sweating, dizziness, depression and hallucinations. There were soldiers who died of heart failure and others who shot themselves during psychotic phases."

"Martin (von) Behaim (6 October 6, 1459 – 29 July 1507) was a German mariner, artist, cosmographer, astronomer, philosopher, geographer and explorer in service to the King of Portugal…During his visit to his native home in Nuremberg, in collaboration with the painter Georg Albrecht Glockenthon, Martin Behaim constructed his familiar terrestrial globe between 1491 and 1493, one of two globes, which he called the Erdapfel (literally, the earth apple).

"The influence of the African Ptolemy, who bequeathed the world latitude and longitude, is apparent, but every attempt is made to incorporate the discoveries of the later Middle Ages (including information from the voyages of Marco Polo, among others). Aside from its fame, the Behaim Globe has numerous geographic errors, even when comparing them to discoveries of the epoch. Western Africa is incorrect, though technology at the time made such calculations difficult; the Cape Verde archipelago lies hundreds of miles out of its proper place; and the Atlantic is filled with mythological islands that were psychologically important to isolated Medieval Christendom."___

Did you know Putin came to Spain undocumented through Gibraltar in the 90's to meet with Russian crime-lords (Russian mafia gangsters).
And yet, the old left in Europe keeps looking the other way in relation to Putin's intentions.

The Unknown Warrior (unidentified soldiers of World War One)
I wonder whether they should start with DNA tests, although the solemnity of unknown soldiers is a harsh reminder of the horrors of war, I think it's important - even after so many decades - to know, to allow those unidentified soldiers to be known as the people they were.
If they can identify a 15th century king, I guess they can identify and put names to those fallen 100 years ago.

Ergot of rye
"Although ergot of rye causes yield reductions, the significance of the disease is primarily related to the various toxic alkaloids present in the ergots (sclerotia). The alkaloids can cause severe health problems in both humans and animals. Before this disease was understood, the ergots were ground up along with rye grains and ingested when the flour was used for baking. In the Middle Ages, this led to a frightening disease of humans known as "holy fire" or "St. Anthony’s fire." Today, ergot poisoning is mostly a concern in animals that may be given contaminated feed or graze where wild grasses are heavily infected with ergot."

The history of topiary
"A satiric essay on “Verdant Sculpture” published by Alexander Pope in The Guardian in 1713 blew topiary out of fashion through mocking descriptions of unfinished sculptures and deformed figures heavily affected by the weather. In the 1720s and 1730s hedges, mazes, and topiary were cleared from aristocratic English gardens by prominent designers such as William Kent and Charles Bridgeman in favour of wilder, more natural-looking gardens."

Panaetius (c. 185 - 109 BC) was a Greek philosopher.
Panaetius, like Polybius, moved to Rome and was part of the entourage of Scipio Aemilianus in the 140's BC, and he was who introduced to the Romans the Stoic philosophy, more based on ethics and moral psychology than in natural philosophy.
He was pupil of Crater of Mallus at Pergamum and studied with the Stoic school at Athens. He succeeded Antipater as head of the School.

Earthlings are a dirty species, devouring, destroying and polluting anything that surrounds them. And they, in their sophisticated minds, are becoming good at hiding it, at making the dirt not apparent. But it remains latent, there, for all to figure out what means to be human.

Bisons in Utah

New photo! These bison are a part of a free-ranging, currently publicly-owned herd of wild bison (commonly and incorrectly called buffalo) on Antelope Island, Utah that number upwards of 700 or more individuals. The habitat is perfect, as there are no wolves, bears or other apex predators, and the only limit to population is the amount of land that can support them.

The power of farmaceutical corporations. Can you imagine TB, or the plague becoming unstoppable?
Documents reveal how poultry firms systematically feed antibiotics to flocks
The drugs fed to farm animals and the risks posed to humans
Pervasive use fuels concerns about impact on human health, emergence of resistant superbugs
- The manner in which drugs are being given to poultry shows that “this could be an even larger piece of the antibiotic-resistance problem than I had thought.” (Donald Kennedy, former FDA commissioner)
- “These are not targeted uses aimed at specific bugs for defined duration. They’re multiple, repeat shotgun blasts that will certainly kill off weaker bugs and promote the stronger, more resistant ones.” (Keeve Nachman, Johns Hopkins University)

Concussion. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Concussions are not inconsequential. During a concussion there is axonal shearing and a chain reaction leading to the death of many neurons.
People who are exposed to many concussions (sometimes there is no need of a direct blow to suffer it), like rugby players, can suffer long term repercussions and concussions can even cause premature dementia.

Thespis
2,548 years ago

Nov. 23, 534 BC – Thespis of Icaria becomes the first recorded actor to portray a character onstage ... and you wondered where the term "thespian" came from? ... "Thespis (/ˈθɛspɪs/; Greek: Θέσπις; fl. 6th century BC) of Icaria (present-day Dionysos, Greece), according to certain Ancient Greek sources and especially Aristotle, was the first person ever to appear on stage as an actor playing a character in a play (instead of speaking as him or herself). In other sources, he is said to have introduced the first principal actor in addition to the chorus.

Thespis was a singer of dithyrambs (songs about stories from mythology with choric refrains). He is credited with introducing a new style in which one singer or actor performed the words of individual characters in the stories, distinguishing between the characters with the aid of different masks.

This new style was called tragedy, and Thespis was the most popular exponent of it. Eventually, in 534 BC competitions to find the best tragedy were instituted at the City Dionysia in Athens, and Thespis won the first documented competition. Capitalizing on his success, Thespis also invented theatrical touring; he would tour various cities while carrying his costumes, masks and other props in a horse-drawn wagon [depicted below]. ..." ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thespis

Silver birch trees.
Trees are awesome: Study shows tree leaves can capture 50%+ of particulate matter pollution
[An old article that is worth posting.]
By examining the silver birch leaves with a scanning electron microscope, the researchers confirmed that the hairy surfaces of the leaves trapped metallic particles. Like the particles measured inside the houses, these metallic particles are most likely the product of combustion and brake wear from vehicles passing by. Previous work has indicated a strong correlation between the amount of material identified by magnetic remanence and benzo(a)pyrene, a carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon found in particulates, Maher says.

Mosquito-Borne Diseases
Malaria, Chikungunya, Dog Heartworm, Dengue, Yellow Fever, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, St. Louis Encephalitis, LaCrosse Encephalitis, Western Equine Encephalitis, West Nile Virus.

Of the more than 3,000 species of mosquitoes, three of them are responsible for the spread of human diseases:
Anopheles (malaria, filariasis, and encephalitis).
Culex (West Nile virus, filariasis, encephalitis)
Aedes (yellow fever, dengue, encephalitis)
http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/bugs/mosquito/

Climate change is contributing to the expansion of their habitats and therefore to the spread of the diseases to more areas of the globe.

Rameau - La dauphine
I dislike anything Baroque, less their music, I don't know why, must be their mathematical strict rules that simplifies the code, preventing my brain from feeling vertigo, or something. If music - as any other aspect of a style - represents its spirit as a whole, regarding Baroque music, why don't I get sick of it, as with the other Baroque expressions that I find so overloaded with affectation and tiresome?

Wikipedia:
Homosexuality is illegal and the death penalty is one of the punishments for homosexuality. Kissing in public is strictly illegal and can result in deportation; kissing in public is a crime punishable by deportation..Expats in Dubai have been deported for kissing in public.
Dubai has a modest dress code. The dress code is part of Dubai's criminal law. Posters and handouts are prevalent throughout Dubai's malls to inform visitors of the official dress code. Most malls in the UAE have a dress code displayed at entrances. At Dubai's malls, shoulders and knees should be covered therefore sleeveless tops and short shorts are not allowed at Dubai's malls. Some expats do not follow the UAE's dress code.
Apostasy is a crime punishable by death in the UAE. UAE incorporates hudud crimes of Sharia law into its Penal Code - apostasy being one of them. Article 1 and Article 66 of UAE's Penal Code requires hudud crimes to be punished with the death penalty, therefore apostasy is punishable by death in the UAE.
Emirati women must receive permission from a male guardian to remarry. The requirement is derived from Sharia, and has been federal law since 2005. In all emirates, it is illegal for Muslim women to marry non-Muslims. In the UAE, a marriage union between a Muslim woman and non-Muslim man is punishable by law, since it is considered a form of "fornication".
Non-Muslim expatriates are liable to Sharia rulings on marriage, divorce and child custody.___
