Ole Olson39,934This is my newest political circle. If you know that there are solutions to the problems that we face, and understand that standing united to move forward is the answer, this circle is for you. These folks are intelligent commenters, good engagers, activists at heart, and have a progressive stream of posts that are fun to read.2014-02-10 02:52:51181227CC G+
Jane Ellen43,979I call this one my Big Ball-0-Fun.  I started with Dede's Fundies, thank you +Dede Craig King and added smaller circles I had made, along with a science circle from +Ray Sanders ,  and some small circles from +Lynette Young and +Carter Gibson and I don't even know who else.  So I haven't organized circles in two years.  You wanna make sumpin' of it? #sharedcircles   #circleshare  #newbies 2013-09-06 17:42:0642926629CC G+
Brian Wolfe22,328I haven't shared a circle in a long time. Maybe too long.Anyways.. Here is the circle that my browser spends the most time on.   Just in case I become a petulant child and walk away (not that I'm planning on doing so , just in case.)2013-08-22 05:36:251941335CC G+
Alex Grossman56,667G+ Engagers CircleIt's been a while since I shared a circle, so here's a small circle of people I recommend following. They are great to engage with, full of energy and opinions and fun, with very little anger, disrespect, or poor manners. Hope you enjoy all of them as much as I do. They certainly make my time in G+ lots of fun. :)2013-08-22 03:31:187510711CC G+

Dede King0The Fundie CircleIt's round. I've hand picked the ones I interact with not because they're relevant to me or because of what they post, but because I could pick them out of a line-up, state their name and at least one fact about them and they're generally wonderful people to know. The top 10 I'd probably bail out of jail and take a bullet for, but that's neither here nor there. One thing none of them can be accused of, is being soporific. As a disclaimer: Circle with caution or stalk quietly as the circle is filled with every type of G+ user that might not appeal to all tastes including:1. Photo fundies2. Meme fundies3. Gif fundies4. News link reshare fundies5. Art fundies6. Science fundies7. Music fundies8. Narcissistic fundies9. Selfie shot fundies10. Food fundies11. Passive-aggressive one liner vague posting fundies12. Contrarian fundies (not trolls, just opinionated)13. Long form post fundies14. Leg humper fundies15. Lastly, the G+ fundies (they know everything about G+ and will tell you how to Internet)16. High Voltage Noms (+A.V. Flox)17. Low Voltage Noms (+Jake Kern)18. Cat fundies (+Bobbi Jo Woods)19. Sine Wave Noms (+fan tai)It's not really a circle meant to be shared, just my way of saying hey to all of you that make this place worth while <3 No hard feelings if I forgot anyone, it happens. Have a wonderful day.2013-04-17 15:28:3834742831130CC G+

Dave Tozier0+Danial Hallock originally shared this post:The Three HundredRevised CopyIt's been about a month since my last share of #thethreehundred  so I wanted to share the revised copy of the circle; and true to my word, there have been a lot of revisions in the last month.For example, I've gone through each and every one of the 200 some odd recommendations and circle shares that came about from the last circle share.  As a result, of the original 297 that were shared a little under a month ago (http://goo.gl/xqGb4), I removed approximately 137 300ers and added 129 new members.  You can expect this circle to continue to change, but I think the triple digit adjustments are mostly done.  For those of you just joining us, this is a continuation of a project where I've been changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).As always, If you're notified you're in it.

Alex Grossman27,422Last time I shared a relevancy circle was back in July. From then until now (October 19), it's only changed by 7 people, and most but not all of that was near the end of the list. So, it's remarkably consistent.These 99 users are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself, so a total of 100). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is definitely more accurate now than last time. Does the algorithm get better over time due to more data? I still suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd still be curious and interested to learn more about it.Anyway, these people are relevant to me and truly help me enjoy my time sharing, talking, discussing, and hanging out on G+. So, thank you to all of you :)TGIF and have a great start to the weekend!P.S. - Typical inconsistent G+ - I could share the Movie Lovers Circle earlier today with about 130 people being notified. However, by mid-morning I couldn't notify the 99 people in this Circle. Now, I can again. But it appears that instead of setting a limit on the number of people in a circle, maybe they've set a limit on the number of people you could notify in a set period of time? Very strange. If anybody has any clue as to why this is, please let me know.2012-10-20 03:24:2710023124CC G+
Alex Grossman27,364It's TGIF so hope you have a great day. Here's a Circle I thought I'd share today for Follow Friday - Movie Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about movies, all kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, engaging with others, sharing and exchanging comments, please let me know and I can try and add you to this Circle (notification limits permitting). If you're a member of this circle, you agree to participate in a respectful manner. Due to the changing and, at times uncertain, notification restrictions Google has in terms of number of people you can notify with a post I've split this up into two Circle. The overflow from this Circle can be found at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/Ad9LJFo9PLrFYI - you can find today's movie thread at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/RDDzuGdsvLX #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #movies   #film  2012-10-19 14:01:4110111219CC G+

Andrew Eva2,872Thought for #followfriday   I'd share my "Makes me Think" circle.These folks all post things, or engage in my posts, with comments and thoughts that make me think. If I find myself at home, hours later, still thinking about a comment, or post, or idea that was being discussed, one of these individuals was most likely part of that discussion or triggered the thought.I hope they all challenge you to think as well.2012-09-28 17:25:226233626CC G+
Alex Grossman26,573For another Follow Friday Circle for today, here is my Music Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about and listen to music. All kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. Unlike other circles, not all shares will be public since some people don't want to see playlists or song shares in their stream. So, articles and discussions of artists, software, the industry, etc will be public and playlists from Spotify or songs may (but not always) be shared to Circles only. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, exchanging comments back and forth, sharing music, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. You only need to agree that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful manner.For a playlist I shared today, go to:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/7vrRYxfXr4c #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #playlist   #music  2012-09-28 14:23:558512112CC G+

Alex Grossman24,371My Top 99 circle - is Relevancy Accurate?These are the 99 users who are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is surprisingly accurate until the last bit of it when some names appeared and others were left off. I suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd be curious to continue the discussions I've seen on other similar threads this week.Want to create your own? (instructions borrowed/stolen from +Max Huijgen )► Click circles on the tab on the right► Make sure relevance is selected (default)► Select the top 99 users.

Alex Grossman24,072For my second Circle today for Follow Friday, here is my Respectful Politics Circle. This Circle is by request only and not for the faint of heart. It's filled with people who are passionate about politics and issues that impact society and come from across the political spectrum - the point is to have fun, learn and share. If you're interested in joining the discussions, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. No commitment to share your own posts, but it is preferred that you at least comment semi-regularly so as to encourage discussion. Just keep in mind that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful and civil manner. Let your passion fill you, but always temper it with manners, respect and politeness. Bullies will not be tolerated. The point is not to "win" but to learn. #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #politics  2012-07-20 15:10:0498901CC G+

Lamar Jamieson0Quite an interesting circle. You will find here a great variety of people. From artists, writers and photographers to business people. Please add & share!2012-07-04 12:30:44190717CC G+
Kyle Beck0So, I know a lot of my friends who have joined +Google+ wonder "What's the point? I have a Facebook." Well that comparison was flawed from the beginning, although many people made it while trying to describe G+. There are similarities, but one of my favorite features in G+ has been the ability to share Circles with others. In fact I'm not sure I would see the point if I hadn't been shared this very circle by +Robert Scoble (IIRC) early on in my G+ membership. It has proven an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute Tech News over the past year and really showed me how G+ is very different from FB.See, when you visit FB the information you receive is solely from your family and real-life acquaintances. This can be great for keeping up with people you don't see regularly, etc., but it is very hard to reach out to new people who share your interests through FB. Not so on G+. You can create and share groups of friends and pages (Circles) to organize your social interests. In effect, this creates dynamic communities where you can choose who you interact with.Anyways, I hope you will consider adding this Circle, packed full of Tech Enthusiasts. If you don't really use G+ or wonder what the point is, that goes double for you!2012-06-30 00:28:364881003CC G+
Danial Hallock (Kysimir)0Teach Me SomethingI briefly alluded to my recent change in how I manage my circles and my reduction from twelve circles to seven (http://goo.gl/ZObSz).  This is the first of three shares that will include a vetted group of individuals that excel in the Google Plus experience in some way.These particular individuals excel at, you guessed it, teaching me something.  There's nearly one hundred plussers here, all of whom post once a week (or more), so while not every single post is educational, you're going to walk away from this stream knowing more than you did walking in.They're all in one circle, but they're not all from one background.  +Paula Jones, for example, excels at teaching us about the #politics  and societal issues of American life.  Meanwhile, +Joshua Tenner is a #paleo  enthusiast and +Kristjan Gunnarsson maintains a #fitness  and #nutrition  blog.  That's just to name a few, there are a few biologists, astronomers, tech giants, philosophers, and just all around smart people.  So if you're looking to spice up your Google Plus experience with a game of educational Russian Roulette, then pick up this circle!  For some more highly educational posters, check out my No Name Needed circle: http://goo.gl/p8yri #sharingiscaring   #circleshare  2012-06-23 12:58:329418119CC G+

Meilani MacDonald2,935Small Business circle 2 of 2Hello small business peeps! I'm a small biz person and naturally I want to connect with other small biz owners. I really feel we all have so much to share with each other and to learn from one another as we navigate this world called Google+ that provides us with so many great tools and resources to support our small biz efforts. I also think it's a good thing to support each other, and lift each other up as we work towards our goals. So I've been collecting small biz people and shared small biz & entrepreneurs circles, because those are the people I most want in my own circles, to follow, to connect with, and to support. I have 700+ small bizzes in my circle, so I've split it into two circles to share with you. This is #2 of the 2. Let's hear it for small business!Btw, speaking of supporting small bizzes, I host a TGIF Biz Networking Hangout every Friday at 4pm pst, now a Hangout on Air. It is a chance to give yourself and your biz a little promo, and I feature special guests who are small biz owners and who have all kinds of good advice and info to share with other small biz owners. Please check my profile for more info or to watch last Friday's episode, where we talked about QR codes and great ideas for how to use them, and also talked about the value of keeping content fresh on your blogs and web sites, and when and why to blog, or not to blog. #smallbusiness #entrepreneur #sharedcircles +CircleCount +Shared Circles Shared a Circle with You +Shared a Circle with you2012-05-28 18:24:39330211318CC G+
Alex Grossman22,176For another Follow Friday Circle for today, here is my Music Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about and listen to music. All kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. Unlike other circles, not all shares will be public since some people don't want to see playlists or song shares in their stream. So, articles and discussions of artists, software, the industry, etc will be public and playlists from Spotify or songs may (but not always) be shared to Circles only. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, exchanging comments back and forth, sharing music, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. You only need to agree that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful manner.For a playlist I shared today, go to:https://plus.google.com/102001774674190160714/posts/NTAp6CzC438 #followfriday #followfridaycircle #music #playlist2012-05-25 15:03:2282229CC G+

❝ The big idea of "Capital in the Twenty-First Century" is that we haven’t just gone back to 19th-century levels of income inequality, we’re also on a path back to “patrimonial capitalism,” in which the commanding heights of the economy are controlled not by talented individuals but by family dynasties. ❞

"We know that cuts to early voting are bad for voters. But just how bad are they?

As part of our lawsuit against North Carolina's voter suppression bill, we asked Ted Allen, a professor of industrial engineering at Ohio State University, and Paul Gronke, a political science professor at Reed College, to crunch some numbers. Both found that shorter early voting periods translate to longer lines and fewer voters."

Look up at the night sky, and you see the history of the universe.  That's because light takes time to reach us.  Some stars are fairly close, and the light only takes a few years to come to our doorstep.  Other objects are farther away, and began their journey almost at the beginning of time.

Red Moon, Green Beam
Image Credit & Copyright: Dan Long (Apache Point Observatory) - Courtesy: Tom Murphy (UC San Diego)
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140418.html

This is not a scene from a sci-fi special effects movie. The green beam of light and red lunar disk are real enough, captured in the early morning hours of April 15. Of course, the reddened lunar disk is easy to explain as the image was taken during this week's total lunar eclipse. Immersed in shadow, the eclipsed Moon reflects the dimmed reddened light of all the sunsets and sunrises filtering around the edges of planet Earth, seen in silhouette from a lunar perspective. But the green beam of light really is a laser. Shot from the 3.5-meter telescope at Apache Point Observatory in southern New Mexico, the beam's path is revealed as Earth's atmosphere scatters some of the intense laser light. The... more »

One thousand years ago, on Good Friday 1014, the Battle of Clontarf was fought just outside Dublin     
The Battle of Clontarf pitched the forces of the Munster over-king Brian Boru and his allies against the armies of north Leinster, Dublin, and Viking mercenaries and allies from across the sea. Brian has been seen as a paragon of Christian leadership, who struggled against all odds to rid Ireland of the perils of conquest by pagan Vikings. He won the battle, but made the ultimate sacrifice in losing his life while praying for victory.
Like all good stories, this stereotypical account of the battle is a blend of fact and fiction. Clontarf was undoubtedly a significant event. Nevertheless, the celebration of this event in literature, over the centuries, is a fascinating topic in its own right.

Since 2001, 26 atomic-bomb-scale explosions have occurred in remote locations around the world, far from populated areas. This Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22, three former NASA astronauts will present new evidence that our planet has experienced many more large-scale asteroid impacts over the past decade than previously thought… three to ten times more, This, according to a new visualization of data from a nuclear weapons warning network

I wrote about this in EARTH (1980).  Defense folks have long worried about such things triggering a war.

Another example of regulatory capture: The EPA is not allowed to monitor fracking sites for methane release without permission from the well operator. Purdue University researchers have apparently determined that methane from fracking sites is venting into the atmosphere at 1000 times the EPA-estimated rate.

This may seem more shocking to you than it actually is. The four Gospels of the canonical New Testament were never the only four; they were selected from a wide range of gospels ("god-spels," i.e. "stories of God") by a series of meetings of bishops between the 2nd and 5th centuries. That selection process never pretended to be impartial: it was focused on picking gospels which gave a story which was consistent with a particular view of the role of the church and of priesthood in particular. (Irenaeus, one of the leading figures in this process, wrote a good deal about it in his book Adversus Haereses)

Today, we know of roughly two dozen ancient gospels. (There are certainly many more) The ones which were rejected tended to fall into a few major categories: "Wisdom gospels," such as the Gospel of Thomas, which are essentially collections of Jesus sayings, were... more »

On The Shoulders of Giants

♀ A sepia print of an Indian woman, a Japanese woman and a woman from Syria, dated 1885. What do they have in common? Extraordinarily, each was the first licensed female medical doctor in their country of origin. They were trained at the Women's Medical College in Pennsylvania, the first of its kind in the country. This was a time before women had the right to vote. If they did attend college at all, it was at the risk of contracting "neuralgia, uterine disease, hysteria, and other derangements of the nervous system” (according to Harvard gynecologist Edward H. Clarke). 

An all-woman medical school was first proposed in 1846, supported by the Quakers and the feminist movement. Dr. Ellwood Harvey, one of the early teaching faculty, daringly smuggled out a slave, Ann Maria Weems, dressed as a male buggy driver, from rightoutsid... more »

Many species of animals can recognize each other's voices. For example, if a horse sees another horse it knows walk by, and then hears that horse's whinny, it won't be surprised, but if it then hears a different horse, it will look up and try to figure out what's going on. Many species go beyond this and have "signature contact calls" -- specific patterns of sound they make to identify themselves, the equivalent of saying "I'm Bob! I'm Bob!" And their species-mates can recognize that as their tag.

This new study, by Cornell's Karl Berg, has found that the green-rumped parrotlet goes much farther than this. Not only do individual parrots have these calls, but they can use each other's call signs to identify each other: not merely the equivalent of saying "I'm Bob! I'm Bob!" but saying "Hey Ted! Come here!" And on top... more »

An evangelical Christian, married to a pastor, living in conservative West Texas, and widely regarded as a top-notch climate scientist, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe is a rare breed on paper — in person, she’s even rarer. Deftly moving between topics like science, religion, and gender with equal parts insight and levity, Hayhoe is an unassuming force of nature.

I have to say that this is one of the more useful "kids react" videos -- because the kids actually give pretty good UX feedback. You can see which things are and aren't obvious for them to operate, which things do and don't make sense to them. (And some of them give explicit feedback which is actually more useful than I've heard from many adults) 

There's a lot to be said for handing your device to a kid and seeing what they do with it.

More interesting science for your day: the "Saltmen" were not deliberately mummified, but were rather workers in a salt mine in Iran, dried and preserved by the climate. The oldest dates to around 323BCE (just before Alexander the Great) and the newest to around 460CE. The dry and salty conditions preserved their bodies startlingly well, and with them, a wealth of detail about their daily lives. 

During the Achaemenid period -- the years before Alexander the Great -- this mine was operated seasonally, with no local settlement. Miners would instead come, heavily provisioned, mine and then leave. In the Sassanid era (the great empire which rose to become Rome's biggest challenger to the East, which ultimately fell to the Islamic caliphates) supplies were grown and acquired locally, even though nobody lived in the area. Miners apparently could stop and get provisions for the arduous... more »

Studying morality in infants is sticky. Morality is hard to define, even among adults. Still, researchers in this field have focused on a few key traits, including helpfulness, fairness and kindness. These "prosocial behaviors," research indicates, may be detectable in babies just a few months old.

My Sunday posting deals with the stuff that makes the world go around. Money and how it flows.  It starts a bit off-angle, by discussing whether the petro-princes who rule Saudi Arabia might at last be willing to use their vast wealth to make the Sunni regains of the Middle East more secure and prosperous, specifically by investing in peace… then I go on to discuss a familiar topic…

…the flow of secret wealth funds, which a recent paper reveals to be so huge that most of the debt crisis in America and Europe would vanish, almost overnight, if all the money involved made it back into the transparent world of honest capitalism.  

In a recent novel or two, I portrayed where this might head -- either to a world radicalization leading to real war and revolution… or else to reform that would benefit us all. Except the world's most outrageous cheaters.
