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

How do I pronounce Latin names? A question that has been eating you from the inside.
Latin Pronunciation
it truly is a mess, a conundrum among a lot of arguing about the fact that nobody seems to follow any rule.

http://ancienthistory.about.com/od/latinlanguage/qt/latinpronounce.htm

Michael A. Covington's Program in Linguistics provides various tips, including the fact that there are 4 ways to pronounce Latin:

1) the reconstructed ancient Roman,
2) the northern Continental European,
3) Church Latin and
4) the "English Method."
He provides the following chart of how to pronounce Latin (Julius Caesar) according to each:

YOO-lee-us KYE-sahr (reconstructed ancient Roman)
YOO-lee-us (T)SAY-sahr (northern Continental Europe)
YOO-lee-us CHAY-sahr ("Church Latin" in Italy)
JOO-lee-us SEE-zer... more »

Preliminary sampling at a Mid West shale outcrop has turned up one of the most diverse collections of early Triassic fossils ever recorded.

The fossils include the remains of plants and animals that lived in part of a shallow estuarine basin extending deep into the supercontinent Gondwanaland's interior, about 250 million years ago.

Armillaria Mellea
The biggest organism on planet Earth is a mycelium (a fungus) that spreads across 2,384 acres (over 1,800 football fields) in Oregon's Blue Mountains. It's called Armillaria Mellea or the honey fungus. And it's over 2,000 years old.

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?

Dubai
Ugly massive tourism industry in an absolute Monarchy based on sharia laws. Host of the world Expo 2020 (one of those nasty and ridiculous events that put on a show hypocrisy itself. The right to host was granted without considering any human rights violations and their anti-democratic policies. Another event of a never-ending list of international events that is a hub for corruption).
Recently, Dubai has bought ancestral Masai land in Tanzania so it can become a Dubai royal family hunting ground, and to that end Masai people are told to leave by the end of the year.
A Dubai royal family hunting ground! In order to be able to have fun hunting big game, these absolute monarchs are evicting 40,000 Masai pastoralists, robbing them of their heritage.

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.___

Departure, tryptich by Max Beckmann (Frankfurt 1932).
Museum of Modern Art (MOMA)
Gallery label text:
Although Beckmann denied that Departure carried any specific political content, the painting has come to be seen as one of the emblematic artistic responses to Hitler’s Germany. It was begun at the time that the Nazis fired Beckmann from his professorship at the Frankfurt Art Academy, and presages his forced emigration.Departure is the first of Beckmann’s several major paintings in the form of a triptych, a three-part format that recalls medieval or Renaissance altarpieces. Indeed, the elaborate narrative juxtaposes scenes of sin and salvation, but what makes the painting modern is the deliberate ambiguity of its iconography.

Old West Legends.
Bass Reeves - Black Hero Marshal (1838 - 1910)
Born to slave parents in 1838 in Paris, Texas.
Over the 35 years that Bass Reeves served as a Deputy United States Marshal, he earned his place in history by being one of the most effective lawmen in Indian Territory, bringing in more than 3,000 outlaws and helping to tame the lawless territory. Killing some 14 men during his service, Reeves always said that he "never shot a man when it was not necessary for him to do so in the discharge of his duty to save his own life."
After partying company with his "master" he became a farmer, and later, due mainly to his knowledge of Indian territory and their languages - what is amazing considering that he was illiterate - he was recruited as deputy, in a vast and dangerous territory.
He was brave and had a sharp mind. A tough man, a badass.

Pedanius Secundus (AD 61)
[From the book: Perfect Victims: Slaughter, Sensation and Serial Killers: An American Criminal Odyssey by Bill James]
In 61 AD the Prefect of the city of Rome, L. Pedanius Secundus, became embroiled in a dispute with one of his slaves, either because he had agreed to release the slave for a price and then reneged on the deal—the story told by the slave—or because Pedanius and the slave had both fallen in love with the same slave boy who was kept as a prostitute, which was apparently the story circulated in the streets. In any case, Pedanius was murdered by the slave. 
Roman law required that, when a slave murdered his master, all of the slaves residing in the household were to be executed—in fact, even if the master died accidentally within his house, the slaves were sometimes executed for failing to protect the master. Pedanius had 400 slaves. The lawhad be... more »

In any case, Pedanius was murdered by the slave. 
Roman law required that, when a slave murdered his master, all of the slaves residing in the household were to be executed—in fact, even if the master died accidentally within his house, the slaves were sometimes executed for failing to protect the master. Pedanius had 400 slaves. The law had been as it was for hundreds of years, Roman law being harder to change than the course of a river, and there had been cases before in which large numbers of slaves had been executed, but now people were losing respect for the old values, and the slaves no longer saw the point in this tradition. Crowds of plebs—rank-and-file civilians, neither slaves nor aristocracy—gathered to protest the executions. Rioting broke out, and not for the first time, incidentally. Rioting had erupted over the same issue at other times through the centuries. 
The senate debated the matter, and most of the senators realized that the executions were unjust. They were unable to block implementation of the law, however, and the order was given that the executions must be carried out. Troops attempted to seize the slaves, but a crowd gathered to defend them, armed with stones and torches, and the soldiers were beaten back. By now Claudius' stepson Nero was the emperor, never known for his civility. Nero ordered thousands of soldiers to the scene. The slaves were taken into custody, and legions of soldiers lined the streets along which they were taken to be put to death.___

29 sheep.

Wikipedia:
"The history of the domesticated sheep traces back to between 11000 and 9000 BC, and the domestication of the wild mouflon in ancient Mesopotamia. Sheep are thought to be one of the first animals domesticated by humans, and there is evidence of sheep farming in Iranian statuary dating to that time period. These sheep were primarily raised for meat, milk, and skins. Woolly sheep began to be developed around 6000 BC in Iran, and cultures such as the Persians became dependent on sheep's wool for trading. They were then imported to Africa and Europe via trading."

Herds of these sheep were controlled by the wealthy and allowed to migrate throughout the country; the sheep had the freedom to graze where they pleased and peasantry who interfered with the sheep could be brought to private tribunals."___

Luxembourg tax files: how tiny state rubber-stamped tax avoidance on an industrial scale
Now you know why the corrupt European politicians chose as head of the European Union (President of the European Commission), a former PM of Luxembourg, lauded by Lagarde and Merkel.

Leaked documents show that one of the EU’s smallest states helped multinationals save millions in tax, to the detriment of its neighbours and allies.
An unprecedented international investigation into tax deals struck with Luxembourg has uncovered the multi-billion dollar tax secrets of some of the world’s largest multinational corporations.

I mind you, Luxembourg is just the tip of the iceberg, another link in a chain of tax avoidance/evasion and money laundering, and this mess is a net of banksters, corporations and corrupt politicians, worldwide... those who dictate the austerity measures for the people and underpin the growth of oligarchies.___

A menace to the Sassanid Empire in the Late Antiquity.
The Hephthalites (the White Huns, Late Antiquity, from 5th to 7th centuries AD). In the first part of the 6th century, at the height of their power, they were located in what is today Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Pakistan [all can be grouped as Fuckistan lol ], India and China.
A Western student's first encounter with the mysterious Ephthalites, or Hephthalites, or White Huns of Central Asia, is probably via the writings of Procopius, that contemporary of the Byzantine Emperor Justinian and fierce polemicist against his sovereign and the Empress Theodora.

They are the only ones among the Huns who have white bodies and countenances which are not ugly."___

Chremonidean War (267 - 261 BC)
Among the rivalries of Alexander's successors, and instigated by Ptolemy II of Egypt, Athens (led by the stoic Chremonides) allied with Sparta against Antigonus II Gonatas of Macedon.
Sparta was defeated in 265, and Athens, waiting in despair for Ptolemy II's reinforcements that never arrived, surrendered after a 2-year long siege by the Macedonians (264 - 262) .

His only known qualifications for this - besides family influence - was that as a 'poet'. Numerian's work was evidently so well known that not a single line has survived over the centuries. So perhaps the description of 'poet' meant he was a late night drinker, never up before midday, lounging around in his underpants type of artist."___

At-home brain stimulation gaining followers

Depending on where he puts the electrodes, Whitmore says, he has expanded his memory, improved his math skills and solved previously intractable problems. The 22-year-old, a researcher in a National Institute on Aging neuroscience lab in Baltimore, writes computer programs in his spare time. When he attaches an electrode to a spot on his forehead, his brain goes into a “flow state,” he says, where tricky coding solutions appear effortlessly. “It’s like the computer is programming itself.”

Armillaria Mellea
The biggest organism on planet Earth is a mycelium (a fungus) that spreads across 2,384 acres (over 1,800 football fields) in Oregon's Blue Mountains. It's called Armillaria Mellea or the honey fungus. And it's over 2,000 years old.

Halloweenish questions, the temple of Karnak and chocolate concerns
Does the sole purpose of damaging the right to our privacy, having every detail of our little stupid lives in the hands of powers whose aims we don't know, justify pitchforks and torches? Must we comply with rules that are allowing such outrageous meddling in our lives? Can we change the rules of the game in favor of more democracy, freedom and social justice based on civil rights? Are cocoa harvests gonna be scarcer in the future, not meeting our demand for chocolate?

A mysterious illness that appeared in Tudor England and that was said to be more virulent among the higher classes.
English Sweating Sickness
A deadly epidemic. The outbreaks were mainly contained withing England, in the summers of 1485, 1508, 1517, 1528 and 1551.
It has been theorized that it could be caused by a variant of hantavirus. The 1528 epidemic spread throughout Europe, but it didn't reach the southern countries.
It disappeared entirely in 1578.

The disease began very suddenly with a sense of apprehension, followed by cold shivers (sometimes very violent), giddiness, headache and severe pains in the neck, shoulders and limbs, with great prostration.

"The symptoms as described by Caius and others were as follows. The disease began very suddenly with a sense of apprehension, followed by cold shivers (sometimes very violent), giddiness, headache and severe pains in the neck, shoulders and limbs, with great prostration. After the cold stage, which might last from half-an-hour to three hours, followed the stage of heat and sweating. The characteristic sweat broke out suddenly, and, as it seemed to those accustomed to the disease, without any obvious cause. With the sweat, or after that was poured out, came a sense of heat, and with this headache and delirium, rapid pulse and intense thirst. Palpitation and pain in the heart were frequent symptoms. No eruption of any kind on the skin was generally observed; Caius makes no allusion to such a symptom. In the later stages there was either general prostration and collapse, or an irresistible tendency to sleep, which was thought to be fatal if the patient were permitted to give way to it. The malady was remarkably rapid in its course, being sometimes fatal even in two or three hours, and some patients died in less than that time. More commonly it was protracted to a period of twelve to twenty-four hours, beyond which it rarely lasted. Those who survived for twenty-four hours were considered safe."

Never underestimate rip currents.
Rip Currents
Calm water is not always ‘safe’ water
"Many people end up in a rip current as a result of choosing to swim in an area of calm water on the beach. Unfortunately, where rip currents start on the shore, the water often has a calmer appearance with ripples on the surface indicting a subtle flow of water out to sea. The best area to swim is between the red and yellow flags to ensure you are under supervision of lifeguards."

"When waves break on a beach, they push water towards the shoreline. Once that water reaches the shore, it has to find a way to get back out to sea, and it does this by flowing downwards into deeper channels in the surf zone. Once the water is in these deeper areas, it can flow back out to sea away from the shoreline. These deeper channels are called rip currents."

"Rip currents are the number 1 hazard on Australian beaches being responsible for at least 21 drownings on average per year, as well as being the cause of many rescues. Rip currents often lead to drowning when swimmers attempt to fight the current trying to swim directly back to the shoreline, become exhausted and begin to panic."___

How do I pronounce Latin names? A question that has been eating you from the inside.
Latin Pronunciation
it truly is a mess, a conundrum among a lot of arguing about the fact that nobody seems to follow any rule.

http://ancienthistory.about.com/od/latinlanguage/qt/latinpronounce.htm

Michael A. Covington's Program in Linguistics provides various tips, including the fact that there are 4 ways to pronounce Latin:

1) the reconstructed ancient Roman,
2) the northern Continental European,
3) Church Latin and
4) the "English Method."
He provides the following chart of how to pronounce Latin (Julius Caesar) according to each:

YOO-lee-us KYE-sahr (reconstructed ancient Roman)
YOO-lee-us (T)SAY-sahr (northern Continental Europe)
YOO-lee-us CHAY-sahr ("Church Latin" in Italy)

JOO-lee-us SEE-zer ("English method")
The northern continental is particularly recommended for scientific terms. Covington notes that it is the pronunciation scientific greats, like Copernicus and Kepler, used. The English method is used for names from mythology and history; however, it is the least like the way the Romans would have pronounced their language.

Africa is the world's second largest continent and the second most populous continent as well. Covering an area of 11,668,599 sq miles, Africa has 54 countries including Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Chad, Niger, Mali, Congo, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Angola, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, South Africa and more. The continent is bordered by the South Atlantic Ocean to the south west and the Mediterranean Sea to the north. The Africa Map also points out the significant landforms including the Sahara Desert region, the Great Rift Valley, the Libyan Desert and the Kalahari Desert. Among the many rivers that flow across the continent, River Nile is very significant. Other important rivers are River Congo, River Orange and River Ubangi.

Nightmare bacteria
How To Track And Attack A Superbug
Dr. Frieden from the CDC called them nightmare bacteria for really three reasons. One is that they're so highly resistant, there's really very little of any antibiotics left that will work. Number two, they have a very high mortality rate. About half of people who get these end up dying. And the third reason is that the mechanism that these bacteria use to beat back the antibiotics can spread from one type of bacteria to another. So that raises the risk they could get out of hospitals and start to spread more widely.

An Illustrated History of Trepanation
https://neurophilosophy.wordpress.com/2007/06/13/an-illustrated-history-of-trepanation/#more-1990

"The trepanned skulls found at prehistoric European sites contained round holes, which varied in size from just a few centimetres in diameter to nearly half of the skull. They are most commonly found in the parietal bone, and also in the occipital and frontal bones, but rarely in the temporal bone. In the earliest European trepanned skulls, the holes were made by scraping the bone away with sharp stones such as flint or obsidian; later, primitive drilling tools were used to drill small holes arranged in circles, after which the piece of bone inside the circle was removed. The late Medieval period saw the introduction of mechanical drilling and sawing instruments, whose sophistication would continue to increase for several hundred years."... more »

"Although the reasons for trepanning and the instruments used for the procedure differ with time and from culture to culture, the result is always the same: a hole in the head, usually made when the individual was fully conscious and, often, unanaesthetized."

Ebola Author Says Outbreak Is 'Part of a Pattern' of Emerging, Deadly Diseases

I try and tell people, as I tried to tell them in this Ebola book, that this is not a one-time deal — this is not a one-off situation — this is part of a pattern. These outbreaks, or epidemics, are going to continue. Although it’s extremely important that we get control of this current Ebola epidemic and bring it to an end, that’s not going to be the end of the story. That’s not going to be any final solution because next year, or the year after, there’ll be another viral outbreak that either turns into an epidemic or threatens to. So that’s the first thing, but of course nobody wants to hear that right now, because everyone is so concerned about and obsessed with Ebola — and I understand that, it’s a horrible situation.___"Part of a Pattern", when someone says that to you then you can start crying, signing your neighbors' divorce or hugging a tree.

But as it happens, in the big picture, they are not producing unless they don't pay taxes, their growth doesn't come from their real inventiveness, but from the leverage of capital they amass in a global tax avoidance. They are suckers of the systems, and huge contributors of social inequality. Even if they deny it and smile and take pictures of themselves surrounded by colorful toys and are wonderful skillful people.
I don't swallow the pill, because it's huge like a cathedral.

Emperor Nero's rotating dining room is finally unearthed

"The legendary dining room was first mentioned by Suetonius after 60 years of Nero’s demise. The Roman historian described something about a revolving room that had the capacity to rotate all throughout the day, thus mimicking the motion of celestial bodies. In fact, many historians believe the innovative space to have a special revolving wooden floor and a fascinating ceiling painted with astronomical details of stars. Furthermore, the room perhaps even had hidden panels that contained perfumes and floral bits that could be sprinkled on to the central dining table."___Emperor Nero's rotating dining room is finally unearthed
