Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych329,519On 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   @109783903175191665261 Total Solar Eclipse2012-11-13 23:00:00133

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 22:47:5043928621

It seems that every time you believe our grubment can't get any worse they have a new low to explore. This is abysmal on so many levels. Defund reputable, internationally respected scientific bodies yet find money to support a discredited person in a plum position. Won't support renewables, but find billions to support a the dying fossil fuel industry. 

Who the hell approved this shameful post? Another captain's call? What a way to discredit a university and have people wonder if a degree from there is worth the paper it's printed on. 
 
"... senior staff at the business school weren’t aware of the plans until shortly before they were announced. "

I hope dipburg and ALL the COALition are forced to sit in an office downwind of a coal mine fire on a 45C day in the middle of a 9 day heatwave.

Melbourne Town Hall at 4pm on 1 May 2015
The WA government is set to forcibly close 150 Aboriginal communities -- a move that would see thousands of people forced off their country and out of their homes . Here's what happened when Melbourne last came together to stand in solidarity with these communities and against their forced closure. Today Melbourne is doing it again -- meet at 4pm at Melbourne Town Hall. More details here:

More on collections.

via +Charles Strebor 

What Collections Are (Not)

Google+ now has a new feature, obviously, called Collections. But what are they and what can you do with them? This post is designed to give some inspiration and tips as to how to use Collections.

First off, collections are not the Google+ variation on Pinterest or Flipboard. More on what they are will adequately dispel the idea that these are any similar to Pinterest of Flipboard, so we can leave it at that.

Following

There are two sides to the collections feature, collecting and following. I'll deal with collecting last, as following is briefer. As far as following is concerned, collections will simply open up the door to more nuanced ways to follow/unfollow people. Initially, everyone now starts off following all the collections of everyone else. That's where we have been in the past. We already have:

- Follow everything from someone. 

- Follow nothing from someone. 

- View topic specific communities to get just that kind of content. 

Collections however give us a layer of nuance that is going to change much of how we interact on Google+, as individuals and as brands. What we get (follow wise) with collections:

- Follow everything from someone and get notifications from a specific collection. (Each collection has a notification setting, in case we want to get notified when that person shares into that specific collection. The notification only happens if new content is shared directly to the collection, and not if pre-existing posts are moved to a collection.)

- Follow everything from someone except what they put in a specific collection. (This is especially great if you enjoy most of a person's content, but don't want to see their selfy/cat/gif/food collection. Luckily for you, they put those things in a collection, just in case you wish to unfollow it.)

- Follow only a collection or two of someone, but don't follow them! (Let's say that person doesn't put their cat posts in a collection. But you really love that photography collection they have. Simply unfollow them from your circle but continue to follow that particular collection of their content. The long term result is, if you post mixed content, it pays to use collections for different topics. If you don't nuance how you post, people can't nuance how they follow.)

- The option then is to have notifications on or off for some of all of these collections, whether you follow the person/page or not.

Again, this is a nuanced kind of following.

Inspiration

But let's move on to collecting, because you'll likely want to make your own. Again, if you don't nuance how you share by using collections, people can't nuance how they follow you. With collections, you can build up multiple audiences, both for brand and profiles.

- Make an album of similar posts. Here is my Start Coding with JavaScript collection, in which you can find a couple posts dedicated to that page: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/0hySX (by placing these in a specific collection, people can unfollow just this one while still follow me, or do the reverse and follow this one but not follow me or any of my other collections).

- Make a to-read list: make a private collection only visible to you. Share your favorite posts from others into it. Weeks later, when the posts are really far down your profile, you can access them quickly from the collections tab in your profile.

- Make a family album that only people in your family circle can see. Sharing into that collection means sharing only to them, and also gives them easy access to all other posts in that collection.

- Make a spammy post collection. Hang on to followers. As a convenience, post all your cat .gif, food posts and super-diamond-engagement circle share posts into a collection so that people don't unfollow you but instead unfollow just that group of posts. Please do so now. It is a convenience.

- Make a songlist by sharing your SoundCloud songs.

- Make collections to target audiences. Communities have categories for patrons to more easily navigatenavigate and interact on the basis of topics. We do this as well using hashtags. Now, pages and profiles themselves can allow for more topic based interaction.

- Make a collection of all your reshares to highlight others, easily accessible from the collection tab on your profile.

Ways of Viewing Collections

Think of collections this way. Labels are to Gmail emails what circles are to Google+ profiles. Each email and each profile can be in multiple labels or circles, respectively. We aren't talking multiple copies.

Collections, on the other hand, are to posts what albums are to images. Images on Google+ can't be in more than one album, and post can only (currently) be in one collection. To put something in a collection, it has to be a post. A collection is an album of posts.

Think of it as a personal hashtag. If you hashtag a post, clicking on that hashtag will take you to all posts by all people using that tag. However, collections are like a hashtag that, when you click on it, only takes you to that "tag" by that one person.

This allows you to aggregate, collect, organize, categorize your posts.

There are many many other ways to use the feature. It is a major change in how we interact.

Maybe
maybe not.

Sounds a bit like filing to me - filing is not one of my strong points.

via +Charles Strebor 
h/t +Ted Ewen 

Collections!
Or: I can finally collect my posts by topic!
aka: I can finally follow specific topics from a person!
 
So, I am sure you have probably seen announcement of Collections. I am sure you have some questions or points of confusion, so I thought I would write this to help you out.
 
TL;DR: If you leave everything to the default settings you will notice no difference in your streams, other than the fact that posts in collections will have a small header showing the collection they are a part of.
 
What are collections? Collections are a way of organising your posts, both new and old, by topic or content. In a way they are like tags. In a way they are like communities. In a way they are just like the G+ you have always used.

Where you used to share a post publicly or to specific circles, you can now also share them to your collections. They will behave just like private and public posts always have, appearing on your profile and in the stream of those who have you circled. As an added bonus, these posts are collected in one convenient place. Kinda like our own magazines!
 
How do I create collections?  You create them using the collections interface, available from the top-central menu bar or via the main drop-down menu. Select collections and click on Create a Collection (see image below, top left). Give it a name and choose whether it is private or public. This choice can not be changed and private collections do not behave quite the way one might expect. For example, if I have a post shared between myself and one other user and I have a private collection which only we can see, I can not move that post to that collection, even though the distribution lists match.
 
Once it is created, your collection will appear as a card in the list next to Create a Collection (again, see image below). Click on it to enter the collection.  You can change the cover image and background colour by clicking on the customise button. Background colours are limited to the palette presented.
 
The cover image is interactive in collections. The top and bottom are truncated in the default view. By clicking on the image, you can expand it to the crop chosen when the image was initially selected as the cover.  There are no visual guides for the truncation, but a little trial and error will get you there.
 
You can change the name of a collection by clicking on the gear icon in the bottom right corner of the cover image and selecting edit. Also take note of the setting available here: *People who have you in circles automatically follow this collection*. By default everyone who has you circled will be set to follow your public collections. THIS EXACTLY MIMICS PRE-COLLECTION BEHAVIOUR. 
 
As mentioned above, if you do nothing to the settings around collections and as long as the collection owner does not change that setting, you will see no real difference from collections.
 
You mean I can finally stop seeing all those  #tedscousins posts? How do I remove a collection from my stream?
Pout. Yes, yes you can. Just go to a profile, click on collections, and you will see all that user's collections you have access to, public and private.  Just click where it says *FOLLOWING* on the collection you wish to mute. It will change to FOLLOW and you are unsubscribed. Click on *FOLLOW* on any collection of interest to add it to your stream.
 
How Do I post to a Collection?
If you are posting a new post, just put the collection you want the post in where you would normally put PUBLIC or a circle name. That's it. Post as normal and the post will appear in both your stream and will be available in the collection. Easy, no?
 
How do I move existing posts to a collection
If the post is yours you can use the dropdown menu (the down pointing carat in the top right of every post) and select move post to collection, select the collection from the list and hit *move to collection*. Done and dusted. Note: posts may only be in *one* collection.   If it is someone else's post, just share it as normal, selecting the target collection.
 
I put a post in the wrong collection. How do I move it?
Well, you don't. You have to remove it first. Use the same drop down menu as we used to move the post in  (top right corner of the post) and select *remove from collection*. You may then add it to the proper collection as detailed above. *Note:* it can take several seconds for the menu in the post to catch up after removing a post from a collection. If *move to collection* is not in the menu, wait a few seconds and try again.
 
Is there any way to bulk move my old posts into collections?
Well, no. You will have to move each post individually. For those of us with many thousand posts, this will be tedious and time consuming.
 
If you are going to try moving a large number of posts to collections from your stream, I strongly suggest creating all the collections first. If you are several pages down in your stream and you want to move a post to a new collection, you will have to open a new tab and create it. Unfortunately, the collection selection list does not update on that change: you have to reload the stream or post, and add it to the new collection. If you are working through your stream this means you will have to scroll down through several pages to find your place again , for every collection you forgot at the start.
 
There you have it. What I've learned of Collections in the short time I've been able to mess with them. If you see anything I have wrong, have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to let me know below. 
 
I'm really interested to see how you all make use of this new feature.___Maybe
maybe not.

Sounds a bit like filing to me - filing is not one of my strong points.

This is an interesting article on faux news, media manipulation and the sad state of the US.

via +Matt Uebel 

>“Tell me why you’re angry,” Vittert began.

“I’m angry because of everything we go through,” Watson said, “You killed my man Freddie. … You really dragged my man who was already out. You’re shooting people out here for nothing. ... We got a mayor who don’t do shit about it.”

Vittert admonished, “We have to watch the language,” and then Watson translated it, Airplane-like, directly from “jive.” “We have a mayor who isn’t doing anything about it.”

“You’ve obviously had a run-in with the police?” Vittert ask-accused. Sure, Watson said. “They hit me with three bean bags.”

Back in the studio, Megyn Kelly was either incredulous or titillated: “Let’s see the injuries.”

And so, Watson lifted up his shirt to reveal three different bloody wounds, with Vittert’s disembodied and ghostly-white hand pointing helpfully into the frame.

“Oh, wow. There you go, Megyn.”___This is an interesting article on faux news, media manipulation and the sad state of the US.

Who needs world class internet and access? Apparently not Australia.

the affordability of digital access was ranked 49th - more expensive than the vast majority of developing economies .

Australia's internet speeds are also well behind international leaders which is headed by South Korea, Hong Kong and Japan

See page 21 of the report for info on cyber security -  also as it relates to children

p 26 there's a brief bit on privacy

Does your vote reflect how the party views issues or how you think they do. Have they changed over time? (Short answer - Yes!) But do you know how and where? What about the hippy, tree hugging Greens? Are they really weird, or is that how the murdoch media wants you to view them? (Short answer - the Greens are more in line with the interests, charities and groups his mother, Dame Elisabeth supported: "academia, the arts, children, flora and fauna, heritage, medical research, social welfare ... [she] also devoted herself to less popular causes: prisoners, children in care, those battling mental illness and substance abuse - from Wikipedia).

"If your not doing anything wrong, you've got nothing to hide"

We're constantly hearing this refrain, from leaders in government, from law officers, from tech industry figures, from media commentators and also in casual conversations with friends and family.

Glen Greenwald, the reporter who broke the Edward Snowden story, clearly explains why this notion is not only wrong, but an insidious threat to our free society.___(Haven't listened yet - posting so I don't lose it)

I know many Aussies and others have been watching the events in Baltimore with .... dismay/disgust/disbelief  

Faux reporters seem to be an issue as we saw on the clip with the mayor (?) asking one to move as he was inflaming an already tense situation.

There's a lot of material in various clips for VCE students to analyse the role of media and the ease in which they manipulate the "news" to push their own agenda. (Clear thinking, critical analysis etc)

Great profile of a person awarded the US Presidential Medal of Freedom and this year's IEEE Medal of Honour. "Today, carbon is poised at a similar crossroads, with carbon-based technologies on the verge of transforming computing and boosting battery-storage capacities. Already, researchers have used these technologies to demonstrate paper-thin batteries, unbreakable touch screens, and terabit-speed wireless communications. And on the farther horizon they envision such carbon-enabled wonders as space elevators, filters that can make seawater drinkable, bionic organs, and transplantable neurons.

Whatever miracles emerge from Carbon Valley, its carbon-tech titans will surely think fondly upon their field’s founding mother, Mildred Dresselhaus. This MIT professor of physics and engineering has, since the early 1960s, been laying the groundwork for networks of nanometer-scale carbon sheets, lattices, wires, and switches. Future engineers will turn these things, fabricated from carbon-based materials such as graphene, into the systems that will carry computing into its next era.

Now, after a half century of quiet work, she is accumulating accolades. This past November, in a ceremony at the White House, President Obama awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the U.S. government’s highest civilian honor. “Her influence is all around us, in the cars we drive, the energy we generate, the electronic devices that power our lives,” Obama said.

And this June, the IEEE will confer upon Dresselhaus its highest accolade, the IEEE Medal of Honor, for her “leadership and contributions across many fields of science and engineering.” She is the first female Medal of Honor recipient in the award’s nearly century-long history."___A great read - on education, smart women, research and a strong can-do attitude.

This is an excellent post on apologies (and non-apologies). Well worth reading and sharing.

Ultimately the best apology contains the below elements:
1) Listen to the offended person and try to understand their perspective.
2) Demonstrate that you understand why what you did was offensive/wrong.
3) Acknowledge the hurt you caused and the damage done.
4) Take responsibility for the situation.
5) Express genuine remorse.
6) Make amends and ask how you can make the situation right.
7) Promise that it won't happen again.
8) Actively try and change your behavior.
9) Say thank you to the other person for bringing the situation to your attention.

I was wrong and I am sorry

Slate's "Bad Astronomer" Phil Plait recently published an apology for a video he posted on YouTube which included a transphobic joke. I applaud Plait for publicly responding to the criticism, for removing the offensive joke from the video, and for promising to try and do better in the future. However, his apology was problematic and he falls into some common apologizing-the-wrong-way traps that I will highlight below.

As someone who has made quite a few public mistakes (and has also apologized incorrectly) I'd like to share my experience of what to do and not to do when you make a mistake and you want to correct it.

Many of us are probably aware that salespeople often use psychological tricks to persuade us to buy their products, even if they themselves aren’t aware of how these techniques mess with our mind. We might even like to think we are immune to that sort of manipulation. But the scientific evidence strongly suggests we aren’t. So why are the following hidden sales tricks so effective?___Learn the tricks of the trades to help see the manipulative tricks salespeople use.

I have to admit it, I get addicted to these, when I see them take on an organic nature (though I realize many are sponsored). Each flash mob interests me and grabs my attention. Nürnberg ones do especially, since I visited there more than a few times when I lived in Prague.

I've also visited that exact location they're performing at! I always had the most intense feelings in that town, to tell tell the truth, thinking of its history...

#books   #childrensbooks  
h/t +Dave Bath 

15 picture books about great contributors in the sciences and arts ... with lots of pictures of a few "Me ... Jane" one of them, about a little English girl and her inseparable toy chimp ... who went on to teach everyone something profound and unexpected about our real chimp cousins.

A lovely introduction to the reviews and (significant) snippets too::

Margaret Mead extolled the value of “spiritual and mental ancestors” in how we form our identity — those people to whom we aren’t related but whose values we try to cultivate in ourselves; role models we seek out not from our immediate genetic pool but from the pool of culture the surrounds us, past and present. Seneca saw in reading, one of the oldest and most reliable ways to identify and contact these cultural ancestors, a way of being adopted into the “households of the noblest intellects.” And what better time to meet such admirable models of personhood than in childhood, that fertile seedbed for the flowering of values and identity?

The techniques [she] identify here also help to explain the simultaneously powerful identification the Fox media audience has with the network, as well as their ardent, reflexive defences of it.

The good news is that the more conscious you are of these techniques, the less likely they are to work on you. The bad news is that those reading this article are probably the least in need in of it."

A measly fine, a night in jail and allowed to go free. FFS. Yet we keep children and adults who have done nothing wrong in indefinite detention. We've really got it arse about. These men should be in indefinite detention with no hope of release.

I can barely believe this. People like those two shouldn't be allowed to leave their country. ___A measly fine, a night in jail and allowed to go free. FFS.

You've got to be aware of the complexity of interrelated issues to see what the impact will be and also realise that if there's easy money to be made, industry can't be relied on to self regulate, think long term or look outside their area.

Some of the most vivid images of my memory bank come from the forests of South Carolina and Georgia. Foreign policy and global commerce seem to dictate that America exhaust its resources in totality with little to no thinking of our own collective future. Make it stop!___You've got to be aware of the complexity of interrelated issues to see what the impact will be and also realise that if there's easy money to be made, industry can't be relied on to self regulate, think long term or look outside their area.

This mightn't be a fun topic, but it's important! When you cark it, kick the bucket, fall off your perch, meet your maker (or any of the other euphemisms for die ) do the people left behind know where to find your will, and how you'd like to be farewelled? The cheapest coffin? (I read that a cardboard box is available in some places) Music? Funeral parlour or church? Embalmed (Really? I'd rather feed some daisies!) A shindig at the pub afterwards or what ...? On the one hand some of this doesn't really matter because you'll be gone and won't know, but it takes some stress off relatives and friends and can prevent arguments when you can refer to a list and say "That's what she wanted. See!"

Brilliant piece by Waleed Aly. It's rare I laugh about anything related to climate change, cobbling renewable energy or unemployment. Well done Waleed! And it was reported in the Herald Sun - golly gosh!

Sending refugees to Cambodia is an example of Australia choosing to overlook the appalling condition of the country, the dire poverty and the fact that it's the most corrupt ASEAN nation. Google "Corruption in Cambodia" to get a sense of the scale. It pervades all aspects of society. 

Given the amount of money we're paying to avoid mature and responsible resettlement of refugees here, one can only wonder where that money will end up.

How long till the first case of corruption surfaces? Will that information be made available? How will the whistleblowers be treated? How will the resettlement of refugees impact on the chronically impoverished population?
