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+

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. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream?  Remember: #sharingiscaring  (Link to this post: http://goo.gl/cHwht)2012-11-20 17:22:28295000CC G+

Danial Hallock (Kysimir)4,130The Three HundredRough DraftA few weeks ago I posted a rather lengthy post about how I was changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).  This is the first rough draft of that circle, minus a few ninjas that prefer not to be shared out.  As such, the landscape of this circle will change drastically over the next few months; but I wanted to give the people who are following this circle a glimpse of what to expect.  As always, If you're notified you're in it. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream? :D #thethreehundred   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring  2012-10-22 15:52:142971201281CC G+
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. (Drag a box around them)► Drag the whole group to "drop here to create new circle"► The new circle will open up.

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/2XVUsmDQ86M #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #music   #playlist  2012-07-20 15:25:0683722CC G+
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+

Fox may show the facts, but so long as the context of systematic racism is omitted, Fox viewers are missing the story.

``Once you understand where the story really starts and what it’s really about, then the whole detour into black-on-black crime is revealed to be “the politics of changing the subject“. Other than corpses, the two issues have nothing in common. It’s like asking Sean Hannity, “Why have you spent so much time on the four Americans who died at Benghazi when tens of thousands of Americans die in car accidents?”''

Fish spitting ostracod fireworks
#wow #nature #fish #fireworks    #gif

Ostracods are one of the ocean-living animals which give off light when they are disturbed.

They produce the chemicals luciferin and luciferase, which emit light when mixed together. The process is called bioluminescence, an adaptation that allows animals to be seen in the complete darkness of the deep sea.

To demonstrate why organisms are able to generate light, ostracods were put into a tank containing cardinal fish, which eat plankton.

When an ostracod is swallowed, it emits a burst of light, making the cardinal fish spit it out.

And they were domesticated because they counted as fish during Lent?!

The genetic changes that transformed wild animals into domesticated forms have long been a mystery. An international team of scientists has now made a breakthrough by showing that many genes controlling the development of the brain and the nervous system were particularly important for rabbit domestication. The study gives answers to many genetic questions.___The difference between wild and tame rabbits is not what genes they have, but how they are regulated

I do love +Andreas Schou's posts. Here he explains how one can't explain the Yezidis.

#t

So, I hear that ISIS / ISIL / The Islamic State is attempting to commit genocide against the Yezidi. What's a Yezidi?

Uh, that's a good question. The short answer: they're a Kurdish religious minority. Probably.

What sort of religious minority?

Uh. That depends on who you ask. They're either (a) adherents to the Kurds' ancestral religion, (b) a weird sort of Ismaili Shi'a, or (c) holdovers from Zoroastrianism.

Or they're not even Kurds. (This probably isn't true, but some Yezidi believe this, so I probably ought to mention it.)

Wait, what? Why don't we know something so simple?

So, this area of the world  -- northern Mesopotamia, southern Iran, parts of Syria, and eastern Anatolia -- has historically been a refuge for religious minorities. Under the Parthians and Sassanids, it played host to dissident Zoroastrianism. Until the Mongol invasion, it was the homeland of the Sabians of Harran. The strongholds of the Assassins were built here. Weird, syncretic sects like the Druze and Ahl-e-Haqq were founded in the same region.

In short, if mainstream Islam didn't approve of it, it was probably invented somewhere around here. And there's been a lot of cross-pollination since. For more about that, see here: http://goo.gl/Ct2lCI.

Can't we just ask them?

Sure! We could do that. For a relatively small, persecuted religious minority, they're surprisingly open about their religion. It's just that... well... asking them doesn't make it clear.

Why not?

From one perspective, Yezidis look a lot like Sufis. They worship at the tombs of Sufi saints. They even maintain some of them. They use Sufi religious terminology (Murids, Sheikhs) to describe their caste system. They have a round of obligatory daily prayers. They claim that their name comes from the Caliph Yazid, who officially sanctioned their religion.

And periodically, the ruling authorities have decided that they're Ismaili Shi'a and decided not to persecute them. 

So, they're a kind of Muslim?

From another perspective, they're ... uh ... the exact opposite of Muslim.

They venerate Satan in the form of a peacock. Their most valuable religious artifacts are brass peacock idols. They tend to pray toward those (or the sun) rather than toward the Kaaba. And they certainly aren't religions of the book: if they actually have a book (and this is unclear), it's in Armenia and no one living has actually read it. 

And they've periodically had prohibitions on literacy, although this -- like most other religious rules -- are not particularly common. 

So, they're Satanists?

Uh. No, not that either. 

You see, after refusing to bow down to mankind, Melek Tawus reconciled with God. He and the other angels are back to being agents of God on earth and in Heaven.Because God eventually wrote off this one little sin, it's not fair to call Melek Tawus "Satan" in the normal sense.

In fact, the angels in Yezidism are really more like the Yazatas of Zoroastrianism -- which is a much more sensible origin than the name of a very unpopular (but perfectly orthodox) Caliph. 

So, they're, what, Zoroastrians?

Uh.

They're nothing like modern Zoroastrians, at least. After going through a very long phase where it was a lot like Hinduism, and a somewhat shorter phase where it picked up Platonist ideas, modern Zoroastrianism ended up with fairly strict dualism and fire temples. In other words, if Yezidism is anything like Zoroastrianism, it's like a type of Zoroastrianism which is very poorly documented.

Then, of course, there's that thing with peacocks.

What thing with peacocks?

In Zoroastrianism, they're a symbol of transcendent evil. After Ahura Mazda creates every living thing, Ahirman creates the peacock -- just to demonstrate that evil can create things of beauty, but that it refuses to. 

It seems pretty unlikely that Yezidi would have gotten another thing about the most common local religion exactly backwards. If their religious dissent dates all the way back to the era where Zoroastrianism was the most common religion, they were likely dissidents back then, too. 

Jesus. They could not have engineered their religion any better to make their neighbors uneasy. At least they're part of the broader Kurdish community, though, right?

Yezidi usually believe they're Kurds. 

Unfortunately, relations between the Yezidi of Sinjar (who were recently stuck on top of a mountain with no water) and the rest of the Kurds are tense. Because Sinjar Yezidi do not by any means believe they're Kurds, and want to remain separate from them. This means a number of things.

First, there weren't many Sinjar Yezidi in the peshmerga. That meant that rescuing Sinjar was a relatively low priority. Second, that meant that Sinjar Kurds had, until recently, been raising a huge political ruckus about getting parliamentary representation separate from the larger Kurdish block.

What can the rest of the world do about it?

Fortunately for everyone (except the Yezidi still in Iraq), there has been a large Yezidi diaspora to more friendly countries. Most of the world's Yezidi population lives in Iraq, but an increasing number are immigrating to Germany and the United States. 

Lincoln, Nebraska has a large Yezidi population, and they seem to be doing fine. In fact, it seems like -- in general -- the Yezidi do fine everywhere but home. And there are only half a million Yezidi worldwide: enough for the West to happily take on as a diasporic population.

Which we kind of owe them.

When the US moved in and conquered the country they live in -- in the process, making it completely unsafe -- a huge number of our translators were ethnic Yezidi. We may not be able to adhere to we break it, we bought it with respect to the catastrophic, immoral war that shattered their tenuous peace, but we can at least adhere to it in bringing them to a safer place. We've done it before, with the Hmong, and we can do it again.___I do love +Andreas Schou's posts. Here he explains how one can't explain the Yezidis.

In a series of experiments, we established internet-mediated [brain to brain] communication by combining a BCI based on voluntary motor imagery-controlled electroencephalographic (EEG) changes with a CBI inducing the conscious perception of phosphenes (light flashes) through neuronavigated, robotized transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), with special care taken to block sensory (tactile, visual or auditory) cues. Our results provide a critical proof-of-principle demonstration for the development of conscious [brain to brain] communication technologies.

Slavery ended, "except as punishment for a crime". And so the states criminalized being black.

This article talks about re-slavery after the Civil War as something that ended by WWII. But did it really? Aren't we just continuously stopping blacks until they are charged with something, and then sending them to privately-run jails where they work for private companies? Sure some poor whites get picked up in the dragnet too, and it's no longer just the South, but have things really changed?

Women in STEM:  The Show me the Stats post

Hi plussers! On a recent post about the experiences of women in IT, somebody said 'Stats or it didn't happen!'

So I'm putting together the stats.

Please add links to any other data or studies.
I'm not so interested today in the solutions or the possible causes - just the magnitude of the problem.

I'll go first:
- Researchers (male and female alike) are more likely to find applicants unsuitable if there's a woman's name at the top:
http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/unofficial-prognosis/2012/09/23/study-shows-gender-bias-in-science-is-real-heres-why-it-matters/

- Women in IT get more critical comments in their performance reviews than their male conterparts, and more negative comments about personality rather than skills:

From Mason Dixon to mountain gravitation to iron cores and contour lines.

#t

I found this out a week ago and wittered about it to friends. I still think it's cool so now you get to see it too.

So Mason and Dixon go on an epic quest to build a straight line, sponsored by the King. But being a careful astronomer/surveyor duo, as well as marking their way in one direction, they took back-bearings and recorded the errors.

They expected the distribution in errors in their back-measurements to be a normal distribution with its mean being 0.

It was consistently south of the mark. After some puzzling, they deduce that the line was being pulled by a nearby mountain range.

So they email the Royal Society and say, "Hey, you'll never guess what happened?" and the Astronomer Royal is tickled pink by this. The RS has some dough left over because they scrimped on observing the passage of venus last year. So he decides to take a year-long leave of absence and go weigh a mountain.

Mason picks out a cone-shaped mountain for him, there being no perfectly spherical ones in sight: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schiehallion

So they measure the perturbation of the gravitational zenith from the astronomical one and, armed with Newton's newfangled equations of gravitation, discover that the mountain is only half as dense as the world. Must be a metal core at the centre, is the conclusion.

To improve on the back-of-envelope -- assume it's a perfect cone -- volume estimates, they employ a phalanx of surveyors to find its volume precisely. They came up with a funky new tool to visualise the mountain: contour lines.

So there you have it. From a petty boundary dispute in the colonies to a metal core via contour lines.

The paper, http://rstl.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/65/500 makes for excellent reading: it's clear and written rather like a Sherlock Holmes story. Just remember that the letter 's' is typeset very long and thin so looks a bit f-ish. One lovely feature is that the first word on each page is written on its own on the last line of the previous page.___From Mason Dixon to mountain gravitation to iron cores and contour lines.

Cloudy with a Chance of Star

WISE J0855-0714 (also known as W0855) is a brown dwarf about 7 light years from us. Based upon its temperature, it is estimated to have a mass of about 10 Jupiters. The minimum mass to be considered a star is usually taken as 13 Jupiter masses, so this particular brown dwarf is either a very, very small star or (more likely) a very large Jupiter-type planet.  That makes it either the 4th most distant star system or the closest known rogue planet. What we know for sure is that it is the coldest known brown dwarf, with a surface temperature of about 260 K (or 25 degrees below freezing for us Americans). It may also have a rather interesting atmosphere.

A new paper in Astronomy and Astrophysics Letters has announced the presence of clouds on the brown dwarf. The team made near-infrared observations of W0855, and compared them with various models of... more »

The minimum mass to be considered a star is usually taken as 13 Jupiter masses, so this particular brown dwarf is either a very, very small star or (more likely) a very large Jupiter-type planet.  That makes it either the 4th most distant star system or the closest known rogue planet. What we know for sure is that it is the coldest known brown dwarf, with a surface temperature of about 260 K (or 25 degrees below freezing for us Americans). It may also have a rather interesting atmosphere.

A new paper in Astronomy and Astrophysics Letters has announced the presence of clouds on the brown dwarf. The team made near-infrared observations of W0855, and compared them with various models of cold brown dwarfs. They found the best agreement was of an atmosphere with partial water clouds. This is unusual, since most known worlds are either cloudless (Mars) or shrouded in clouds (Venus, Titan). Of course W0855 is much more Jupiter-like, being about the same size, but with more mass. What such a partly-cloudy Jovian planet might look like is still unclear.

It’s important to note that this result is still somewhat tentative. The planet had not been imaged in detail, and a direct spectral analysis of W0855 hasn’t been made. This is not a direct detection of water on an exoplanet, but rather agreement with a model. But what this work does show is that Jupiter-like planets are likely much more diverse than seen in our own solar system, and some may indeed have partly-cloudy skies.

There are Google+ auto-awesome movies?! That mix movie segments and stills?

Rather neat. Although in this case the soundtrack replacement is more than a little incongruous. From drums and rattles to classical. :)

Interesting (scary) numbers for Liberia in here.  Ebola may actually catch up as a number one disease cause of death for Liberia.  Article is in response to the claim that malaria kills far more people than Ebola does - which is true in an absolute sense, but when you break it down to a country level and look at the number of deaths per day in Liberia, the picture looks a lot different.  And that's what makes it a health crisis here.    #Liberia   #Ebola

9 states refused to implement REALID. Now Feds are starting to deny their drivers licenses as IDs.

If this continues at an impasse, in 2016 a Mass license won't get you on a plane.

Thoughts?

Cyber security czar says his lack of computer expertise is an asset. :/

This is one of the most injudicious public statements from a public official entrusted with making policy in an area that requires specialized knowledge that I can recall. 
http://www.vox.com/2014/8/21/6053819/white-house-cybersecurity-czar-brags-about-his-lack-of-technical#

He's probably right about the value of him getting into the weeds by personally programming software, penetration testing or network analysis, given his policy role. To claim that a lack of knowledge about the details of those technologies is an asset, however, is not credible to me, any more than the U.S. Surgeon General understanding biochemistry and medicine would be, or the head of the Council of Economic Advisers understanding macroeconomic theory and the math that underpins projections and indices. 

Unfortunately, this may define Daniel in the public eye far more than anything else he does, and could even weaken his ability to execute on his mission, with respect the credibility of his guidance to the public and industry.___Cyber security czar says his lack of computer expertise is an asset. :/

Fox may show the facts, but so long as the context of systematic racism is omitted, Fox viewers are missing the story.

``Once you understand where the story really starts and what it’s really about, then the whole detour into black-on-black crime is revealed to be “the politics of changing the subject“. Other than corpses, the two issues have nothing in common. It’s like asking Sean Hannity, “Why have you spent so much time on the four Americans who died at Benghazi when tens of thousands of Americans die in car accidents?”''

Ink Procedure has their first EP out! Great set of "punkcorechestral" music.

Available on iTunes, Google Play, and Spotify.

And yes, I'm biased. My older daughter's partner is in the band, and my younger daughter did the cover art. Go buy it!
