Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych235,063On 2012 November 13/14, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses Earth's southern Hemisphere. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow begins in northern Australia and crosses the South Pacific Ocean with on other no landfall. The Moon's penumbral shadow produces a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific.For those traveling to Australia for the eclipse, please note that the eclipse occurs on the morning of Nov. 14 local time.For more information, including specific timezones and best countries to view from see NASA's website here:http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEmono/TSE2012/TSE2012.html#sciencesunday    #solareclipse   #eclipse   #NASA   +ScienceSunday Total Solar Eclipse2012-11-13 23:00:00131

Johnny Stork7,288Spirituality & Self Development CircleWe all strive towards various personal, professional and for many, spiritual goals in life. In our increasingly crowded and interconnected planet, we are often reminded of how each of out lives intersect and how each of us share many of the same values and needs. Many of these shared values and shared needs included the welfare of others, the welfare of the entire planet and the welfare of all living creatures.One way to think of what it means to be "spiritual" or concerned with "self" development is simply to be concerned with something, or someone, beyond yourself, beyond the personal. Holding a transpersonal world-view.The people in this circle share these values, these interests in developing personally, professionally and spiritually for the sake of all people as well as themselves. I am honoured to share this circle of humanitarian, compassionate, learned and transpersonally inclined friends. #transpersonalpsychology   #spirituality   #selfdevelopment   #positivepsychology  2014-02-05 00:55:3849011616

Brett Gibson5,754It's been a while since I've shared my "Australia" circle (probably 12 months) - *But I do keep it up to date. *Inactive people or Brands are kicked out. New ones are added.

Tessa Schlesinger12,664These are the people I follow. If you would like to follow these people, feel free. There is no guarantee that they will add you if you do. You will be following them because you would like to hear what they have to say. There is no need to plus it, add a comment, and then share it in order for you to be added to some new circle which will be shared. This is the way we shared circles for the first two years. So feel free to add, or not. And I'm not in it so it isn't promoting myself. It's a gift to you, if you would like it. And, I suppose it's a gift to those who are in the circle that I freely give with no expectation of return.2013-11-03 12:52:17133335

Dallas McMillan7,412Circle from the land downunder - Australia's top 200 PlussersWho are Australia's most followed people on Google Plus?I've put together this circle of Australia's top 200 profiles (by follower numbers - not engagement - some aren't particularly active) on Google Plus.It's pretty interesting to see the types of profiles which make the cut.Here is my quick overview:By far the most dominant characteristic of the top 200 are photographers - professional and amateur.The other notable individuals are a couple of cricketers in the top 10, a smattering of celebrity chefs, musicians, writers, artists, models and other celebrities.There are also fair numbers of Google employees, IT workers, social media and marketing types as well as a decent number of scientists and mathematicians. The only politician I noticed was Malcolm Turnbull - the Prime Minister and Leader of the opposition are conspicuous by their absence.I got the list from +CircleCount http://www.circlecount.com/au/profileslist/ and I've made a few tweaks - removing a couple of profiles that were inactive or had moved away from Australia. There were a number of others which probably don't belong as they now work in the USA or elsewhere.  #australia   #australianphotographers   #circleshare  I've notified members of the circle - let me know if you don't want to be listed.2013-08-04 14:24:522009213
Stephanie Calahan1,218FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 4 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1491 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmFabulous Women on G+ Part 2 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/DRFwReXQvbFFabulous Women on G+ Part 3 Can be found here:https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/7wiyEUFuKsHWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+If You Received Notification About this Circle--------------------------------------------------------------------If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified me or others in the circle as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9tI thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless it is 100% warranted. G+ Quirky Things to Note----------------------------------------* Google+ has a daily limit of 500 for adding people to your circles. If you haven't added 50 people or more today, you should be fine to add one of the circles daily.2013-06-09 22:47:5043927622

The fate of world’s largest marine protected areas is being decided in Hobart now!

Help us create a global legacy.(petition at the end)

You are all invited to a very special briefing on the proposed marine protected areas in the Ross Sea and East Antarctica. 

Hear international scientists and policy experts outline the values of and reasons for large scale proposed protection of these critical ocean eco-systems.

Also - see magnificent wildlife images from world-renowned Antarctic photographer John Weller.

This event is free to attend.

For any further questions, please contact amanda@antarcticocean.org

This year, the international community has an opportunity to establish the world’s largest network of Marine Protected Areas in the oceans around Antarctica. The 25 Members of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) are meeting in Hobart from 20th to 31st October to decide the fate of two historic proposals for Antarctic marine protection.

The protection of Antarctica’s Ross Sea and East Antarctica regions will ensure these unique and pristine marine ecosystems are preserved for future generations. This beautiful, icy ocean environment is home to nearly 10,000 highly adapted species, many of which cannot be found anywhere else on the planet. Adélie and emperor penguins, Antarctic petrels and minke whales, Ross Sea killer whales, colossal squid and Weddell seals all thrive in this inhospitable climate.

While marine ecosystems in other parts of the globe are threatened and devastated by development, pollution, mining, oil drilling, climate change impacts and overfishing, Antarctica’s Southern Ocean remains relatively intact and is worth protecting. 

The Antarctic Ocean Alliance (AOA) is a group of 30 leading environmental organisations including the Pew Charitable Trust, WWF, Greenpeace, the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition (ASOC), ECO, Forest & Bird, Mission Blue, Greenovation Hub (China), CIES/KFEM (Korea) The Last Ocean, Oceans 5, Deepwave, Whale and Dolphin Conservation and other groups worldwide. 

Help us ensure the legacy!

The Antarctic Ocean Alliance is asking CCAMLR members to join the call for the protection of Antarctica’s wild oceans. With Antarctica’s land protected it’s time to create an ocean legacy.

Please join us at this special event, and take a moment to sign our petition: http://antarcticocean.org/___

(Reposted due to crashing phone app.)

"When politicians vote in parliament, you won’t see the breakdown of votes reported in the media unless it’s a prominent policy.

To find out how your representative voted on an issue it’s currently pretty tricky. You have to track down the proceedings on the parliament house website and then work out how the question has been phrased so you can determine what an aye or no means in that context."

And those records are yawn-inducingly dry.

"Built by the non-profit OpenAustralia Foundation, They Vote For You shows the outcome of every vote in the Senate and House of Representatives. It also lets you see voting patterns by politician, when they vote against their own party, and offers descriptions of divisions in plain English.

Matthew Landauer, one of the OpenAustralia founders, said he hoped it would enable people to check if their representatives are voting in their constituents’ interests."___This looks good! We need to know whether our elected reps are voting in our interests or not - in clear English

There is so much which is great in Whitlam's "It's time" speech, sadly much if it is relevant today, but with no leadership in the Labor party, it seems that it's up to Scott Ludlam or possibly Christine Milne to fill the gaping void.

"Are you prepared to maintain at the head of your affairs a coalition which has lurched into crisis after crisis, embarrassment piled on embarrassment week after week. 
Will you accept another three years of waiting for next week’s crisis, next week’s blunder. 

We cannot afford to limp along with men whose attitudes are rooted in the slogans of the 1950’s – the slogans of fear and hate.

Yesterday, Education Minister Christopher Pyne announced he would drop his proposed interest rates hikes on student loans — but only if the Senate agrees to deregulate university fees. And he told the media he was "making great progress" in his negotiations with the Senate crossbench and "getting closer to an outcome".1 

With or without higher interest rates, deregulation will lead to doubling of degree costs, $100,000 degrees, and a lifetime of debt. So to keep crossbenchers standing firm on their repeated promises to oppose deregulation, we need to pick up the phones and do what GetUp members do best: hold power to account.

Yesterday, Education Minister Christopher Pyne announced he would drop his proposed interest rates hikes on student loans — but only if the Senate agrees to deregulate university fees. And he told the media he was "making great progress" in his negotiations with the Senate crossbench and "getting closer to an outcome".1 

With or without higher interest rates, deregulation will lead to doubling of degree costs, $100,000 degrees, and a lifetime of debt. So to keep crossbenchers standing firm on their repeated promises to oppose deregulation, we need to pick up the phones and do what GetUp members do best: hold power to account. 

The senate crossbench has already shown they're listening to us. When GetUp members called their representatives every hour on the hour over August, we secured resolute commitments on Newstart and Medicare. So if dozens of passionate, engaged GetUp members pick up the phone for higher education, our senators will know that Australians are watching closely. 

Click here to put in a call to your crossbench senator Ricky Muir over the next 48 hours, to let him know that Australians are holding him to his promises on university deregulation. 

So far, Senator Muir has given strong indications that he will reject the Abbott government's deregulation plans. Last month he asked the Senate, "What should I tell my children when they ask me why the government wants to deregulate the sector which could put universities out of reach for millions of ordinary Australians?".2 

Similarly, the Palmer United Party folk, with whom he is aligned, have been even more emphatic, with QLD PUP Senator Glenn Lazarus stating that they will "block the higher education reforms in the Senate. We will oppose any changes to the higher education system fee structure and we will oppose any increases to the cost of HECS".3 

So, we need Senator Muir to understand that Mr Pyne's deal is no deal at all — and accepting it would be a clear breach of the crossbenchers' higher education promises to Australians. 

Click here to be part of this rapid response calling effort, and ask Senator Muir to state his firm commitment to affordable education. 

The committee reviewing the higher education legislation will make their recommendations to the Senate next Tuesday. If Mr Pyne can strike a deal, we could see a vote on the package as early as next week. 

Before this happens, thousands of GetUp members will ask for recommitments from their crossbench senators that they'll hold strong to preserve affordable university education for all Australians. 

Let's do this, 
Nat, Mark, Lily and Georgina, for the GetUp team 

PS - And in case you need reminding, here's why university deregulation is bad news. Deregulation will remove price caps on fees, seeing costs skyrocket and students saddled with enormous debt sentences. It will allow certain elite universities to charge enormous amounts for their degrees, while smaller universities without the "brand power" lose out. Will you take a minute now to ask Senator Muir to stand strong on higher education?: https://www.getup.org.au/keep-your-promise-muir

Excerpt: The firearms incident illustrates the lack of effective powers of IGIS and its inability to offer genuinely independent oversight of Australia’s intelligence agencies: there is effectively no sanction for agencies or officers misleading, or failing to provide complete information to, IGIS: the IGIS Act only provides for a modest fine if someone refuses to be sworn to give evidence to IGIS, or refuses to answer a question once sworn. There will thus be no sanctions or embarrassment for ASIS despite the “substantial discrepancy” (a loaded term that, in bureaucracy-speak, conveys deep dissatisfaction) between what the secret agency gave to its purported monitoring body, and the truth.

Yet this is the body that the government wants Australians to believe will provide sufficient oversight of the ever-increasing powers of intelligence agencies against the rights of citizens."

This is a petition request for them to be discontinued.

In my wildest dreams I never expected my daughter +Amelia Travers to be doing research near the atoll where Amelia Earhart disappeared.

"Today we mapped the edge of the remote Nukumanu Atoll, last known position of Amelia Earhart, adventurous air pioneer of her day. My parents named me after her, admiring her fortitude and even, perhaps, her stubbornness to persevere. I don’t know that I have anywhere near her drive or ability, but it is exciting to be here as part of a trip of exploration and discovery."

The Abbott Government's efforts to deregulate university fees would lead to sickening fee hikes that would deny opportunities to many and shackle others to a lifetime of debt.

Work as Blessing

I was at a board meeting this weekend, where someone very wise shared this poem about work. It captures beautifully the essence of deeper, more satisfying work. And I like it so much, I'm going to buy the book from which it was published, providing the link to you too, should you wish to do the same. 

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

May your work excite your heart,
Kindle in your mind a creativity
To journey beyond the old limits
Of all that has become wearisome.

May this work challenge you toward
New frontiers that will emerge
As you begin to approach them,
Calling forth from you the full force
And depth of your undiscovered gifts.

May the work fit the rhythms of your soul,
Enabling you to draw from the invisible
New ideas and a vision that will inspire.

Remember to be kind
To those you work with you,
Endeavor to remain aware
Of the quiet world
That lives behind each face.

Be fair in your expectations,
Compassionate in your criticism.
May you have the grace of encouragement
To awaken the gift in the other’s heart,
Building in them the confidence
To follow the call of the gift.

May you come to know that work
Which emerges from the mind of love
Will have beauty and form.

May this work be worthy
Of the energy of your heart
And the light of your thought.

May your work assume a proper space in your life;
Instead of owning or using you,
May it challenge and refine you,
Bringing you every day further
Into the wonder of your heart.

- John O’Donohue,
 
To Bless the Space Between Us

#TPW14  on Twitter for a good summary of The Privacy Workshop presentations in Melbourne yesterday. Keep the memes coming! A couple of mildly heartening tidbits. There are pollies on both sides (including all the Greens) who understand and are uncomfortable with the Data Retention Laws. They're going to need a lot of nudging, support and encouragement to break ranks. This isn't the time to be quiet, insecure or silent. They need to hear from you. Loud and clear.

These kind of laws have been found ineffective in Europe their stated aim of unearthing terrorists. They don't work. There are good ways to detect terrorists that are already available and used in international collaboration.

And before you say, 'oh well I have nothing to hide', think a little. Most people I've worked with as a counsellor have things they'd prefer others not know about. Time off due to anxiety as a result of workplace bullying. An alcohol habit. Gender identity issues. A run-in with the law. You're not a terrorist, but your life will be even more of an open book than it is now, and a wide range of departments will have access to your data without you even being aware they're looking. The Australian public doesn't benefit and your fundamental right to privacy has been violated.

Are You A T-Shaped Innovator?
Leonardo da Vinci certainly was

In the world of super specialization, information overload  and seemingly shrinking time the value of being a Renaissance Man is lost. At least it appears this way. 

How can you succeed in life without becoming an ultimate expert in a gadget, a tool, a subject that might become obsolete sooner than we can assume a celebratory pose on the top of Pundit Mountain? Right? But, we press on, lulled by convenience and complacency.

Yet, we desperately need generalists. People, who can bridge subjects. People who can see past common sense and find the similarities and gaps unseen to subject experts. 

So, who are you? A specialist or a generalist? What makes you tick and tock?

“They’re like, ‘Sir, there’s something in your bag.’
I said, ‘Yes, I think it’s this box.’
They said, ‘What’s in the box?’
I said, ‘a large gold medal,’ as one does.
So they opened it up and they said, ‘What’s it made out of?’
I said, ‘gold.’
And they’re like, ‘Uhhhh. Who gave this to you?’
‘The King of Sweden.’
‘Why did he give this to you?’
‘Because I helped discover the expansion rate of the universe was accelerating.’
At which point, they were beginning to lose their sense of humor. I explained to them it was a Nobel Prize, and their main question was, ‘Why were you in Fargo?’”

A fascinating insight, and very different to the sanitised, mass produced, corporate endorsed version. 

thanks to  +Tessa Schlesinger 

As I contemplate my last week in America, I Google what other immigrants think about the States.

QUOTE: According to CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS and other mainstream network news stations, ALL immigrants in America claim to have a better life and more freedom, escaping oppression and tyranny in their home country.  That’s the view that they attempt to “manufacture” to the US public.  Contrary opinions (such as the ones here) are censored out, and in their view, don’t exist. 

QUOTE...after 20 years living on the US, I gradually have come to a similar conclusion. Now I tend to see US as an extremely luxury prison, and experience life here as a shell, hollow with little content except if your life is all about making money or being fully committed to a career...

QUOTE: A Lithuanian immigrant named Valdas Anelauskas who came to the US to flee communism expressed his disappointment and how he underestimated how bad things were in the US. In one of his articles, he writes: 
 
http://www.geociti.es/CapitolHill/Senate/1120/article1.html
I see that in this cutthroat society, based on a "greed is good" philosophy, unlimited profit seeking, selfishness, fraud and greediness for money dominates everywhere. Money is absolutely the bottom line for everything. In America, the rich are truly rich and the poor are hopelessly poor. In my opinion, the United States today has the most advanced system of private tyranny. Private corporations have enormous power in this country and they take advantage of an apparently legal slave labor, terribly exploiting the working class people. Corporate bosses earn millions while workers struggle to survive without living wages. From my point of view, the majority of jobs here today are still extremely exploitative. The U.S. minimum wage is ridiculous. Working for $5 an hour is slavery and nothing else. Therefore, poor people and homeless people make up a significant portion of the population in this country. Millions of hard-working Americans live permanently at the edge of poverty. There is no doubt that economic injustice is the most important issue of today's America. The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, and all the people in the middle are just falling down. I see that people in this society are secondary to corporate power and profits. Freedom for market dominates over freedom for people. In fact, at least 80 percent of Americans are simply robbed by this exploiting system. I've noticed how American corporate propaganda always surely emphasizes that in European countries - "welfare states"- people have to pay a much higher taxes. In fact, taxes in most of Western Europe, even in Scandinavia, are just slightly higher than an average 34 percent of income Americans pay. The main thing is what people receive in return for their taxes. In European social- democracies everybody has a "cradle-to-grave" comfortable feeling of security and care. Question: What are citizens of this country getting for their tax dollars? Answer: Next to nothing! People's taxes support armament instead of basic human needs here.


QUOTE: “There are many things that can be said about main stream American culture (or non-culture, I should say), but the bottom line is that it is a paper plate consumer focused culture ... All things are judged in value according to their "use" or productivity, and then thrown aside when they are used up or no longer producing ... Usually, the corporations decide what is to be valued, and the people, with blind faith and obedience, look to the corporate conglomerates' commercials and their commercial sponsored media for the answers to everything ... 

QUOTE: A late good friend of mine from Peru used to tell me "Americans are friendly but not your friend". He observed how in the U.S. one could work for years in a company and never be invited to a co-workers home. This was far different from Peru where people frequently visited each others homes and were very social outside of work. I found this intriguing. As you have said each society has its pluses and minuses. Hope you enjoy this. Take care.”

QUOTE: So someone coming here from another country (say India ) would think they're the friendliest people in the world. I thought that too, when I walked out on the streets on my first day in the US and had total strangers smiling at me and saying "Hello, How do you do".....but I quickly realized that they were just 'being nice'  and had no earthly interest in hearing my answer. 

In India, it is rather different - people aren't as quick to smile and say hi, but they are much more likely to invite you home, or do other things that help cement friendships quicker than I've seen happen here in the US. I know that's generalizing, and I'm not an expert on cultural phenomena by any means, but there definitely is a discernable difference

QUOTE: I have lived in the US for 13 years now, and I can't but agree with every single word you wrote.  I am sure that many of my friends who have gone through the same experiences do also agree.  America is the land of false promise, the land of moral and psychological depression.  People in the US who think they're happy, are mostly so because they do not know any better. ... 
Anyhow, I am working of relocating out of the US as soon as possible after reality of life has become crystal clear.  No regrets, because life events have forced me into this direction, but now I say to myself: enough!___A fascinating insight, and very different to the sanitised, mass produced, corporate endorsed version.

Skim reading, but Page 49 onwards - basically saying it'll be business as usual with Vic relying on dirty brown coal (with its known associated, completely ignored health issues) rather than serious investment in sustainable alternatives. There are clearly some great things happening in the alternative/sustainable energy field which could go a long way to increasing employment in a wide range of areas. These are mostly ignored in favour of the focus on coal and gas and the implication that it's only fossil fuel Co's which provide jobs. There's talk about timely decisions for the future, a mixed message given the lack of serious support for anything other than fossil fuels. We still have most of our energy needs in the one basket. You only need to look at the number of pages devoted to positive support for coal and gas to see where the priorities lie.

I didn't notice statements about how much support the fossil fuel industry receives, but there are figures for alternative energy research. On a quick reading it therefore appears that alternative energy gets support, but the fossil fuel industry doesn't. Curious omission. Interesting also the note that people going off grid and being more energy efficient lead to rising energy prices. It's their fault?
Oh and expect further rises in gas prices.

Will the Abbott government finally do something about the main cost driver for rising electricity and gas prices?

"The business model of the energy sector – in both gas and electricity – is predicated on a monumental conflict of interest. The more the network companies spend, the more they earn. The temptation to build as much as possible, and bill the government for it, has simply been too hard to resist."

... Mischel has consistently found that the crucial factor in delaying gratification is the ability to change your perception of the object or action you want to resist. Trying to avoid the tasty treat in front of your nose? Put a frame around it in your mind, as if it were a picture or photograph, to make the temptation less immediate. One boy in Mischel’s test was initially unable to wait, but, with careful instruction, eventually learned to hold out. When Mischel asked him what had changed, the boy replied, “You can’t eat a picture.” Mischel used a different kind of picturing when he quit smoking—he replaced his pleasurable associations with cigarettes with the image of the man in the hospital.

A very interesting study which could be quite helpful when quitting smoking or other addictions.   #selfcontrol   #addiction   #psychology  ___Sharing to read tomorrow.

Cambodia. Where poverty is more common than not, where fresh water isn't the norm, where the slave trade flourishes and  most shamefully, where the Australian govt is willing to send refugees which we are more than capable of attending to humanely and adequately in our own affluent country. 

Approximately 66% of rural Cambodians lack access to sanitation infrastructure, which can lead to devastating effects on health. Populations in flood-prone areas are particularly at risk. EWB will establish and support a network of local entrepreneurs to manufacture and install biodigester toilet systems. This will address the lack of sanitation in flooding and floating environments in Cambodia, and provide households with a cost-effective form of renewable energy.

"The seven companies' combined market capitalisation is A$45 billion. So the divestment amounts to 1 in every 3,000 shares, on average, for these companies. Any direct impact on their share prices will be negligible, and ANU hasn’t ruled out reinvesting if their ratings improve. Why, then, has it been so controversial?"
