Charles Strebor17,545Let's InteractThis circle consists of 23 people that have recently circled me that I have circled back - or the other way around.In this group of 23, there is interest to be found: a few artists and photographers, a heap of nerds and myriad lovers of science and science fiction but, generally, just lots of #GoodPeople.And beards - more than a few beards.Investigate what you find here - you might find a few new people for your G+ experience.#letsinteract #circleshare  #GoodPeople  2014-12-07 00:42:3623000

This is an incredibly disturbing story for anyone who knows someone or values those who serve their country in this capacity; the IS has released personal details on numerous US service personnel to assist in having them killed: http://tech.slashdot.org/story/15/03/22/1540241/islamic-state-doxes-us-soldiers-airmen-calls-on-supporters-to-kill-them

I would argue this release qualifies more as terrorism than any eventual attempted killings.

The contribution of people who were deemed second class is much appreciated. It's a good thing the women of math and science persevered in spite of wrong headedness.

Happy birthday Emmy Noether

Today we commemorate the birthday of Amalie Emmy Noether. Emmy Noether was born to a Jewish family in the Bavarian town of Erlangen; her father was mathematician Max Noether. Emmy originally planned to teach French and English after passing the required examinations, but instead studied mathematics at the University of Erlangen, where her father lectured. She is renowned for her groundbreaking contributions to abstract algebra and theoretical physics. She revolutionized the theories of rings, fields, and algebras, and top notch pioneers in their fields such as Pavel Alexandrov, Albert Einstein, Jean Dieudonné, Hermann Weyl, et al. described her as the most important woman in the history of mathematics.
In my opinion, in physics the most important discovery of her's is the one-to-one correspondence between continuous symmetries on one side and conserved quantities on the other side -- Noether's theorem. It is a deep physical insight whose origin and meaning became clear later in quantum mechanics, where conserved quantities generate the symmetry transformations. Now, you may have thought many a times as to what is "Energy". The answer lies in Noether's theorem. The time evolution in quantum mechanics is governed by the Hamiltonian trough the time evolution operator U= exp (iHt). Noether's theorem again show us that there is a relationship between Energy (Through the Hamiltonian) and system's time evolution. Or in other words, Noether's theorem guarantees that there's a number that's conserved whenever there's time translational symmetry, or in other words the quantity whose conservation law can be derived from the time-translation symmetry is referred to as energy. From spatial translations, one obtains the momentum; from spatial rotations, one can derive the components of the angular momentum; Galilean or Lorentz symmetries are linked to the constant velocity of the center of mass, so on and so forth. Here's a note I wrote on Noether's theorem. 
Around 1915 when David Hilbert and Felix Klein wanted her to be a Privatdozent in Göttingen, there was some opposition. A female teacher would be viewed as a humiliating experience for the chauvinistic society! However, she spent four years lecturing under Hilbert's name. Her habilitation was approved in 1919, allowing her to obtain the rank of Privatdozent. Noether was an excellent teacher and never claimed credit for work she wouldn't deserve. Unfortunately one of her students, Werner Weber, later helped Adolf Hitler to get rid of her in 1933. She moved to Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania. Even there she had to face the "prevalent" male chauvinism.
Contributions and Publications by Emmy Noether: http://bit.ly/cR6pIm
A very good article on Emmy Noether from Wikipedia (This happens to be today's featured article in Wikipedia): http://bit.ly/12bhAy Noether's application for admission to the University of Erlangen and three curricula vitae. The first of these is in Emmy Noether's own handwriting (In German): http://bit.ly/9L80ip
Some memories of Noether: http://bit.ly/1eBc6UA Here's an important paper showing the importance of Noether's work: http://arxiv.org/pdf/physics/9807044v2.pdf
And, here's translation of Noether's Theorems in English: http://arxiv.org/abs/physics/0503066
Sadly, male chauvinism still exists in many parts of the world, because of which many potential "could be" Noether are denied education. And its a matter of shame that Noether was also a victim of sexism, like many others. In spite of that, against all odds, she made remarkable contributions in the "magnanimous" world of Mathematics, and Theoretical Physics.

Having a 1960's home with a relatively new furnace, I sometimes have heat distribution problems at home.  I've looked at the past at those vent shut-off controls that connect to per-room thermostats but I'd hate to cause stress to the furnace.
That's why I got all excited when I saw that someone had made a Nest-integrated system that does the same thing from the vent covers and more intelligently ... until I priced it.  $1000 to replace the vents in my home.  No thanks.

I'm not sure this qualifies as an apology, but I suppose there's no confusion about where Ted Nugent stands on the president:

“I do apologize, not necessarily to the president, but on behalf of much better men than myself,” Mr. Nugent said, mentioning Mr. Perry and Mr. Abbott. He added: “I apologize for using the street-fighter terminology of ‘subhuman mongrel’ instead of just using more understandable language, such as ‘violator of his oath to the Constitution,’ ‘the liar that he is.’ ”

Well that ends my concerns... Changes to google plus will not be user facing... In other words, we won't notice.

Google Announcements at the 2015 Mobile World Congress

Key areas of Google innovation announced by Google Senior VP of products, +Sundar Pichai are:

Connectivity

With project Loon, Google Fiber and project Titan (think Google drones bringing wireless connectivity to remote locations), Google has set its sights on bringing connectivity to all who want it.  

Google as a wireless carrier

There's been a lot of speculation that Google wants to begin providing wireless access as a mobile virtual network operator. To that speculation, Pichai had this to say:

"I think we're at the stage where we need to think of hardware, software, and connectivity together, Especially with things like watches. We don't intend to be a carrier at scale, and we're working with existing partners. You'll see some of our ideas come to fruit in the next few months."

Android

Android Pay was the big announcement here, and this will be integrated with Google Wallet for wireless NFC purchases. Pichai also mentioned that the Android One project (intended to bring a smart phone based on Android to emerging markets for around $100 per unit) was moving ahead. Google hopes to get that price down to half that in the coming years as well.

Google+

There's been a lot of speculation around what exactly is going on with +Google+. There's a clear change with +Bradley Horowitz taking lead with Photos and Streams. 

There will also be other organizational changes, to include a focus on:

- The Google+ Stream
- Hangouts
- Photos

These changes will not be user-facing, and are a focus by Google on improving the G+ platform.

Good post, I'm still concerned but I'm h hopeful they improve rather than dismantle...

Why I am not Worried about the Future of Google+

1. Google+ has gone through several iterations in the past, and it has gained users consistently with every change.  This service (the social layer that connects all Google's properties) has seen rapid growth considering time since launch, and against all of the mindless pejoratives thrown at it in the past.

2. Google+ was never meant to be a standalone product, but a point of social connection for all the existing services under the Google umbrella (Search, Gmail Blogger, Youtube, Drive, etc).  Having Photos be a standalone product won't hurt the mission or function of Google+ any more than letting any of Google's other properties remain separate.

3. Making Photos a part of Google+ was a good move for Picasa, and the development that happened with Google+ shows the strength of the "ghost town," not its weakness.  If there's no one working at Google+, and no one using it, then how did Photos get to be so big?  Further than that, it is a low estimation of the "Stream" qualities of Google+ (which is why many of us log in here every morning) to assume it won't survive without Photos as a crutch.

4. You don't make your VP OF PRODUCT (social) the head of a dying/dead network.  +Bradley Horowitz is way too valuable an asset to waste on something that has no future.

5. +Bradley Horowitz.  That's all I have to say.  This is not anything against +Dave Besbris, but Horowitz has been "on my radar" for a few years now, and that wasn't the same with Bez.  That's not to say Bez didn't love Google+, he obviously did, but Bradley carries some clout that few others do.

6. The "Streams" moniker not a re-brand but a shift in focus.  Think for a minute about what it says that the "Stream" element of Google+ carries so much weight that it actually is going to get the attention that it deserves.  Google+ was never meant to be a Facebook alternative/clone/killer but the Social element that touched all the other parts of Google.  Lo and behold, the Stream itself has become an entity all its own.  Who made that happen?  The users did.  And they deserve a point all their own.

7. The users.  This is the real strength of Google+.  The contributors, the arguers, the thought-leaders (he says with a smirk), that come here, and engage, and engage, and engage.  Some in bursts, and some in trickles throughout the day, but this place is a wonderland of information, ideas, and opinions that few of us even have the time to keep up with in our normal lives.  Some networks thrive on the bullhorn method of information broadcasting, but here on The Plus, if you engage, others will engage with you.  They will teach you to defend what you say, they will challenge you with new ways of seeing things, and sometimes it won't devolve into a mindless internet CAPSLOCK match.  These are qualities that are particular to this network, because Google+ calls to a certain audience, and if that continues to be the case ... What, me worry?___Good post, I'm still concerned but I'm h hopeful they improve rather than dismantle...

By comparison, how do you tell your touch screen you want to check spelling vs copy and paste vs insert new text vs start voice recognition vs start a macro? You take away screen real-estate to add zones to touch making screens less useful; not more.

Are we going to go back to Iraq and intervene for a worthwhile reason?  Hard to sell after all the previous times, isn't it?

This is a beautiful thing, but I hope they make a mk2 version with an upgraded resolution and battery perhaps.

A brilliant bit of research out of Australia about the issue of white privilege and how racial bias occurs in every day decision making: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/24/opinion/research-shows-white-privilege-is-real.html

I was already aware of most of these, but they're still an interesting side-effect of our modern pre-manufactured food industry: http://themindunleashed.org/2014/09/14-things-people-probably-want-know-favorite-foods.html

I think the 'who are you wearing?' question is perfectly valid when you consider how much effort goes into the artistry of these outfits.  That said, the sexism is rich on the red carpet and intelligent questions need to be asked of both genders; "there is a notable discrepancy in the questions being asked beyond dresses, accessories and the mani cam. At the Elle Women of Hollywood event back in October, Jennifer Garner spoke out about being consistently asked about work-life balance, while Ben Affleck (Garner's husband, and father of their children) is never asked the question."

Canada isn't always known for its military technology or gun technology in general but that's mostly because we don't brag half as much as our unnamed neighbour.
