Alister Macintyre42,106Do not confuse this circle with the one I have on Native American Indian interests.  My India Circle has people whose lives have either passed thru the great nation of India, are there now, or interested in India.  My interests range world wide, some nations more than others.  I recently started an Asia circle, and tried to pour into it my circles for Australia, China, Japan, India, some other countries, but bumped into another of G+ silly ceilings.  I have circles for several major regions of the world, including Middle East, Eu-W, and Eu-other.  I also have circles for specific nations like Germany and Haiti.2014-03-27 18:26:53148002CC G+

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 14:24:522009213CC G+

This pseudo-thread pretty much summarizes the difference between Marvel and DC's attitude about their audiences: DC considers it far too risky to show shocking, foreign things in their movies, such as "women," "people of color," or "LGBT characters," especially as primary protagonists, whereas Marvel... well, they have decided that they are going to do whatever the fuck they feel like.

So why am I sharing this now, a few weeks after it spread on the Internets? Because +The Verge decided to run the numbers to see just how they're doing: http://www.theverge.com/2014/8/22/6056617/marvels-movie-business-is-crushing-dcs-and-its-not-close

Turns out Marvel has raked in something like double what DC has from its movies.

The biggest thing I've taken away from this project is something I'll never be able to prove, but I'm convinced to my core: The lack of such a database is intentional. No government—not the federal government, and not the thousands of municipalities that give their police forces license to use deadly force—wants you to know how many people it kills and why.

It's the only conclusion that can be drawn from the evidence. What evidence? In attempting to collect this information, I was lied to and delayed by the FBI, even when I was only trying to find out the addresses of police departments to make public records requests. The government collects millions of bits of data annually about law enforcement in its Uniform Crime Report, but it doesn't collect information about the most consequential act a law enforcer can do.

I watched YouTube videos and my own personally-captured videos on this crappy hardware and am no longer a skeptic. “In your face” means something different now. When our devices capture stereoscopic 3D as standard there will be no going back.
 
I flew through 3D Google Earth, along valleys and in between the spires of a church on a hill somewhere, shot up into space and plunged back down to Earth elsewhere. It was fun as hell. But looked crap; limited by resolution and bandwidth. Limits that we will soon crush.
 
I rode shotgun on a rally car racing at full speed and looked over to the car racing alongside trying to overtake, then glanced behind me at the other cars chasing us, having just jumped over the mound that we crested moments earlier.
 
I glided around the gardens of a villa, went inside, climbed the stairs and looked out over the gardens and distant horizon from a balcony. All it lacked was resolution and a better UI for navigation; first-person games will be amazing in this thing. People will lose themselves in these worlds. We think people spend too much time playing in virtual game worlds now; we ain't seen nothing yet.
 
I booted up my recent PhotoSpheres and . . . just wow. This is how PhotoSpheres are meant to be viewed; immersively. I need to shoot them in higher resolution . . . and in stereoscopic 3D. Like with the video: in your face means something different now.
 
I did all of this in half an hour to try everything out quickly and get a feel for it. I finished with a sore nose where the cardboard had dug in and left a depression in the skin that took 5 minutes to go away, and sore head where the USB cable I had used to wrap and tie the thing to my face had left other depressions. Everything suffered from cheap hardware and issues with resolution and bandwidth. Also lacking were important subtleties with optics, tracking, and presence. But this is as bad as this technology is ever going to get; good dedicated consumer hardware launches next year. I’m forking out another $100 to get a better, more comfortable version for my phone and for the short-term at least, could care less about the resolution and bandwidth limitations. 
 
Think strapping a display to your face is stupid? Give it a try. This thing was $20 and gives a good basic glimpse into the future of entertainment media that not only awaits us but is coming at us like a freight train.

Twelve months into the Abbott government, conservative forces, both in government and outside, are mounting a new push. It is the same ideology as before and it affects the whole NGO sector. But it is also more focused on silencing climate change debate and protecting corporations that are responsible for emissions and unsustainable practices.

Tracking the campaign against NGOs

The attacks on NGOs have intensified in recent months. Their timing suggests they are not random events.

The Liberal Party federal council in June unanimously recommends stripping NGOs of their ability to receive tax-deductible donations. Tasmanian MP Andrew Nikolic names the Australian Conservation Foundation, the Bob Brown Foundation and the Environmental Defenders’ Offices, accusing them of “untruthful, destructive attacks on legitimate business” and “political activism”.

In June, Coalition MP George Christensen, the member for Dawson in north Queensland, calls for a “cleansing” of the Department of Environment’s list of those organisations eligible to receive tax-deductible gifts. He singles out the Mackay Conservation Group, which is trying to protect the Great Barrier Reef. The group is challenging environment minister Greg Hunt’s approval of dredging at Abbot Point for a coal port.

At the end of the financial year, a number of reports emerge from the environment movement of NGOs being audited by the Tax Office and questioned by the Department of Environment about their right to receive tax-deductible donations.

In April, a review of competition law has the parliamentary secretary for agriculture, Richard Colbeck, talking about repeal of Section 45DD of the Competition and Consumer Act. He wants to take away environmental NGO exemptions from its secondary boycott clauses. Its repeal would stop NGOs from campaigning against the environmental behaviour of companies. Colbeck says: “I think there is an appetite in the government for changing these laws”. He claims that the backbench rural committee and “quite a number of the ministry” want the competition review to take away the exemption. Later, some submissions (from the Australian Forest Products Association, for example) echo this proposed change. The review’s draft report is due in September.

In June, the Minerals Council of Australia releases a paper by IPA senior fellow Sinclair Davidson, entitled A Critique of the Coal Divestment Campaign. Davidson welcomes the Abbott government’s “announced plans” to remove the Section 45DD exemption “to provide a level playing field and hold environmental groups to the same standard as business”.

Davidson in his paper also claims that NGOs are breaking Section 1041E of the Corporations Act by encouraging individuals and organisations to stop investing in fossil fuel companies and their financiers.

In December, attorney-general George Brandis removes funding from the national legal network of Environmental Defenders Offices.

While not an environmental NGO, the national network of community legal centres is collateral damage and has also been targeted by Brandis. The centres' service agreements are changed to prevent them publicly suggesting legal reforms.

The May budget abolishes Grants to Voluntary Environment, Sustainability and Heritage Organisations. This grants scheme has been helping state conservation councils and their member groups, as well as hundreds of grassroots groups throughout the country, since 1973.

The Coalition moves to abolish the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission. The NGO sector had hoped this relatively new body would improve accountability, as well as reduce government red tape. Its abolition would change the regulation of NGOs – a worrying prospect when the government is trying to silence their voices.

The Multiverse is an awful theory, the main feature being that we do not and cannot every really understand anything. Things are as they are because our universe was randomly generated out of just the right numbers. This kind of puts it outside of the realm of science.

Any efforts to bring explanation, predictions and disprovability back into the picture are welcome.

This is the sad joke about privatization. A public monopoly even when privatized is still a monopoly.

If Australians wonder why Internet and many other services are more expensive in their country than anywhere else in the world they need only look to Telstra. What's interesting is that Telstra maintains their high pricing even if only delivering traffic inside the country. Given that Australia is one large land mass with relatively concentrated population centers, it's difficult to justify the pricing based on anything other than Telstra's market power. In regions like North America where there is increasing consolidation of networks, Australia's experience with Telstra provides a cautionary tale.

Rather than get distressed by this scenario, watch as the conservative "sceptics" starting pointing at these vents not as the result but the cause of climate change. Not humans.

Before they try it, familiarize yourself with the quantities involved. Humans are dumping orders of magnitude more carbon dioxide into the air than all the naturally venting sources methane combined. Whether warming will lead to an acceleration of this venting process is what remains to be discovered.

Via +James Lamb

The latest news is getting people upset.  NBC News writes:

Climate Bomb?  Methane Vents Bubble on Seafloor off East Coast: Study

+David Brin writes:

This is what we had all feared.  The possible tipping point.  Methane plumes are emanating from at least 570 seafloor cold seeps on the outer continental shelf and the continental slope, Mississippi State University reported.  A potential disaster that I warned about in EARTH (1989), accelerating ocean acidification and turning the greenhouse into a runaway.

http://www.hngn.com/articles/40189/20140825/methane-leaking-from-sea-floor-could-change-ocean-acidity-oxygen-content.htm

"Warming of ocean temperatures on seasonal, decadal or much longer time scales can cause gas hydrate to release its methane, which may then be emitted at seep sites," said Carolyn Ruppel, study co-author and chief of the USGS Gas Hydrates Project.  "Such continental slope seeps have previously been recognized in the Arctic, but not at mid-latitudes.  So this is a first."

To be clear, methane is a far worse greenhouse gas than CO2… and rising ocean temps will cause icy methane hydrates to fizz, all over the globe, possibly causing a runaway effect.

Which leaves me with this to say to you wretched, monstrous, science-hating fools, with your “hypnotize-me!” Fox-Nuremberg rallies and neo-confederate rant-fests against all big-city-university “smartypants” types. 

No evidence will change your opposition to negotiating even moderate, sensible, precautionary interim measures to increase energy efficiency or do basic R&D. You sabotage TWODA (Things We Ought to be Doing Anyway.)  You helped to sabotage the satellites and instruments and research vessels that could have nailed it all down.

You help to denigrate and geld the smartest, most knowledgeable, competitive and wisest human beings whom our species has ever produced, and thereby you declare yourselves to be brave authority questioners and skeptics!  While kneejerk-robotically obeying  the hypnotize-me channels owned by coal and oil barons... and never once sniffing the suspicious irony.

We can expect more of this sort of rhetoric in the decades to come.   However, about this new discovery, it's worth noting:

1) Nobody before has looked very hard for methane venting off the East Coast, so it's hard to tell if it's new.  The guy who found the vents, Adam Skarke, says:

The fact that it is there in the quantities that it is and it is exposed suggests that indeed the processes at these locations have been going on, in a very general sense, on the order of at least 1,000 years.

So we need to monitor the vents and see if they're getting bigger, while meanwhile taking action to limit carbon emissions.  Brin is right about stupid US government cutbacks on climate monitoring.  It's a really shortsighted way to save money!

2) The amount of methane being released from the vents seen in this study is small.  Methane is indeed a very bad greenhouse gas, and we do need to worry about a 'tipping point' where warming oceans release more of the vast amounts of methane stored in sea beds, thus warming the Earth even more.  There are vast amounts of methane stored in hydrates there, and there's evidence that it could have been released during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, an episode when the Earth's temperature rose by 6 °C (11 °F) in about 20,000 years.  However,  there's no evidence that we're already in an unstoppable runaway situation. 

David Archer, an expert on climate and the carbon cycle, says:

In the timescale of centuries to hundreds of thousands of years, it (methane hydrate) is clearly a significant amplifier.  But in terms of the climate of just the coming century, the actual forcing of climate from the rise in atmospheric methane due to this, I think, will be small.

He, like most climate scientists, believes that human CO2 emissions are the main cause of global warming.

3) Let's not just complain, let's do something!  David Brin is talking about US politics, so let me focus on that - just today.  Until there's more action at the federal level in the US, we can act locally.  California has a carbon cap-and-trade system, which is linked with Quebec's:

http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/capandtrade.htm

Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont have their own system, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative:

http://www.rggi.org/

Another group, the Midwestern Greenhouse Gas Reduction Accord, includes Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and also Manitoba:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midwestern_Greenhouse_Gas_Reduction_Accord

And the Western Climate Initiative includes Arizona, California, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah and Washington in the US, and British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec in Canada:

http://www.co2offsetresearch.org/policy/WCI.html

So: we should figure out ways to help these initiatives succeed!   The ones that succeed will become the groundwork for a national system!  Ideas? 

The actual paper on methane emissions is here:

• A. Skarke et al, Widespread methane leakage from the sea floor on the northern US Atlantic margin, Nature Geoscience , 24 August 2014, http://www.nature.com/ngeo/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/ngeo2232.html.

It's not free except for the abstract, so someone should 'liberate' it.  It's absurd to have such important results locked up, while any blogger with a loud mouth (like me) can be read for free.___Rather than get distressed by this scenario, watch as the conservative "sceptics" starting pointing at these vents not as the result but the cause of climate change. Not humans.

Before they try it, familiarize yourself with the quantities involved. Humans are dumping orders of magnitude more carbon dioxide into the air than all the naturally venting sources methane combined.

Millions of science loving moderates (like me) have been willing to negotiate the best measures that would (win-win) simultaneously take reasonable efficiency precautions and boost economic activity instead of squelching it.  We do not want to “shiver in the dark”… but you SOBs have never shown the slightest willingness to sit and make a deal with moderates on the other side. It has become a reflex. You... never... negotiate.

Instead you empower and enable a New Civil War which has reduced the world’s greatest and most scientific and future-oriented nation to utter dysfunction, unable to perform politics and negotiation at even the most basic level.

You refuse to look at actual outcomes, by which measure your “side” has proved insanely incompetent.  You refuse to follow the money or look at who are the winners from your movement’s loony wars or from the Tobacco-style denialist-delay campaign on climate change.  EVERYTHING to you is “right versus left” — a loony metaphor that allows you to ignore one blatant fact -- that Adam Smith … today… would be a Democrat. As would any moderate-libertarian-capitalist scientist, like me.

You are jibbering crazies, who don't give a damn about your grand-children or your nation or planet.  And when the seas rise, the climate refugees will legitimately claim your homes.___Time to stop being "moderate"?

Melburnians: we really need to save Royal Park from this sprawling mass of tentacles spewing from this hellish tunnel.

Labor hopes you will vote them in without making any effort to cancel this project. Don't let them wriggle out of it, they don't deserve government if they end up bankrolling this billion dollar per kilometre gift to the financial elite.

Victorians will be paying for this folly for generations to come.

You know, there is something really weird going on with Tony Abbott's government.

They do and say stuff that makes you think that they don't really believe that they are the government. They act instead like they're still in opposition. A shadow cabinet of attack dogs and rabid mongrels; all chompy and bitey but also chained up.

The real government is, presumably, taking place somewhere else.

The biggest thing I've taken away from this project is something I'll never be able to prove, but I'm convinced to my core: The lack of such a database is intentional. No government—not the federal government, and not the thousands of municipalities that give their police forces license to use deadly force—wants you to know how many people it kills and why.

It's the only conclusion that can be drawn from the evidence. What evidence? In attempting to collect this information, I was lied to and delayed by the FBI, even when I was only trying to find out the addresses of police departments to make public records requests. The government collects millions of bits of data annually about law enforcement in its Uniform Crime Report, but it doesn't collect information about the most consequential act a law enforcer can do.

I've been lied to and delayed by state, county and local law enforcement agencies—almost every time. They've blatantly broken public records laws, and then thumbed their authoritarian noses at the temerity of a citizen asking for information that might embarrass the agency. And these are the people in charge of enforcing the law.

The second biggest thing I learned is that bad journalism colludes with police to hide this information. The primary reason for this is that police will cut off information to reporters who tell tales. And a reporter can't work if he or she can't talk to sources. It happened to me on almost every level as I advanced this year-long Fatal Encounters series through the News & Review. First they talk; then they stop, then they roadblock.___

+Yonatan Zunger misses the elephant in the room. All superhero movies, no matter which comic universe they come from, are utter shit.

This pseudo-thread pretty much summarizes the difference between Marvel and DC's attitude about their audiences: DC considers it far too risky to show shocking, foreign things in their movies, such as "women," "people of color," or "LGBT characters," especially as primary protagonists, whereas Marvel... well, they have decided that they are going to do whatever the fuck they feel like.

So why am I sharing this now, a few weeks after it spread on the Internets? Because +The Verge decided to run the numbers to see just how they're doing: http://www.theverge.com/2014/8/22/6056617/marvels-movie-business-is-crushing-dcs-and-its-not-close

Turns out Marvel has raked in something like double what DC has from its movies.

(Unsurprisingly, because DC's movies have been averaging "tedious and boring." Seriously, Superman is about as interesting as listening to a lecture about Truth, Justice, the American Way, and the Neitzschean Übermensch from the PR office of the Boy Scouts, without even the homoerotic subtext of Batman's three-way relationship with Robin and the Joker to leaven it. And I think that this attitude of DC's is no small part of why.)

(Also, vi is better than EMACS)

In related news, LEGO finally decided to ship a non-pink set with women in it -- their "Research Institute" set (http://shop.lego.com/en-US/Research-Institute-21110). Except good luck getting it, because the entire production run sold out almost instantly. 

And yet, I keep hearing companies explaining why their marketing always slants towards showing a bunch of white men, with scantily clad white women for decoration, and the occasional "exotic" in the background, because it sells so well, they tell us. The coveted demographic of 18-35 white, middle-class men won't buy anything else. There's no market for other things, because people from all the other groups will buy white, middle-class men, but not vice-versa, and there surely isn't enough money that isn't in the hands of white, middle-class men to matter.

You know what I call it when someone comes up with a business plan like that? A chance to make a lot of money at their expense, that's what. 

h/t to +Kimberly Chapman, +Capin Chip, and quite a few others for the pseudo-thread -- I unfortunately can't find any reliable original source for it. ___+Yonatan Zunger misses the elephant in the room. All superhero movies, no matter which comic universe they come from, are utter shit.

I bought one of these for my Nexus 5. Apart from replacing my conventional wallet for cash and cards, the best feature is the auti-wake feature which wakes up the phone when the cover is flipped open, no need to use the on switch. (It works by having a couple of magnets sown into the cover).

I actually was looking at this video because I couldn't work out what the two tiny pockets were for. Sim cards, mystery solved. These are really useful if you do any international travelling because roaming is ridiculously expensive. Just get a sim for the country you are visiting.

From today's Crikey:

The threat to Bill Shorten from unproven rape allegations may lie as much in them not being used against him as in any media smear campaigns.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten’s decision to identify himself as the subject of a police investigation into sexual assault allegations when he was a teenager was made in anticipation that News Corporation would attempt to use the story against him, Labor figures say.

The lengthy investigation concluded this week, with police deciding not to recommend charges in relation to events involving Shorten and an unnamed woman at a Young Labor event in the 1980s. Yesterday, Shorten confirmed what had long been discussed on social media, that he was the target of the allegations.

From today's Crikey:

The threat to Bill Shorten from unproven rape allegations may lie as much in them not being used against him as in any media smear campaigns.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten’s decision to identify himself as the subject of a police investigation into sexual assault allegations when he was a teenager was made in anticipation that News Corporation would attempt to use the story against him, Labor figures say.

The lengthy investigation concluded this week, with police deciding not to recommend charges in relation to events involving Shorten and an unnamed woman at a Young Labor event in the 1980s. Yesterday, Shorten confirmed what had long been discussed on social media, that he was the target of the allegations.

The Australian newspaper has run several pieces on the investigation into a “senior Labor figure” over the last year. Most pertinently, it ran a column by right-wing industrial relations columnist Grace Collier in The Weekend Australian last Saturday, which warned that even if charges were not laid, it would still “be a disaster for Labor”. Collier, who famously claimed that prime minister Julia Gillard was in no position to complain of misogyny because she showed too much cleavage in Parliament, collaborated on the hounding of Gillard over the AWU corruption matter from the 1990s with far-Right blogger and sacked shock jock Michael Smith, who has enthusiastically aired the rape allegations about Shorten.

The column was seen by some in Labor as a blunt warning that, regardless of the truth of the allegations, News Corp would run the same sort of smear campaign against him that it ran against Gillard, which continued for over a year despite a complete absence of any specific allegations against her.

However, a direct attack designed to destroy Shorten, who has proved unexpectedly competitive against a government that has spent a year stumbling from error to error, may not have been the only thing playing on Labor minds. One of the key elements of Rupert Murdoch’s success, according to The Guardian’s Nick Davies, is his ability to secure cooperation from key figures based on the threat that they will be punished via personal attack in his newspapers. As Davies wrote in July:

“At its worst, everybody in the power elite has heard that the punishment can amount to crude blackmail. They have all heard the stories about how Murdoch editors have safes containing dossiers of evidence about the private lives of politicians and competing businessmen; and that Murdoch and his people agree to suppress these gross embarrassments in exchange for yet more favours. There are specific rumours — about a senior figure in British sport who is said to have complied with Murdoch’s plans for TV rights when he was informed thatThe Sun was ready to tell its readers that he had had sexual relationships with young men; and about a middle-ranking Labour politician who is said to have spoken up on behalf of Murdoch’s UK newspapers after journalists obtained a video of him having sex with a prostitute while the prostitute’s husband watched. It is true that the sports administrator and the Labour politician offered their support to Murdoch. Whether they did so out of fear of the dossiers — or whether the dossiers even exist — is not so clear. The power is in the belief and in the fear it engenders. Which is widespread.”

In this context, the allegations against Shorten, even if police had decided not to proceed with them, were perhaps more damaging if they remained unused by News Corp, kept in the safe, with an implied threat that they could be pulled out if Shorten was seen to be a threat to the company, or if a specific favour was needed. And the threat can always remain implied — it is given force by the few occasions it is publicly delivered on. As Davies notes:

“The power to conceal or reveal sensitive personal information turns out to be just like the power of the bully in the school playground. The bully need only batter one or two children for the fact of his power to be established: fear will then ensure that the others do all they can to placate him.”

Whether in response to the prelude to an attack or to prevent the threat of future attack, Shorten has opted to attempt to short-circuit the issue by coming out, unexpectedly, and on his own terms, to discuss it. It’s true that the allegations were already widely circulating online; this is not the 1980s, when mainstream media journalists and editors could act as gatekeepers of personal information about politicians. But it’s a high-risk play in that it elevates what until now has amounted to social media abuse into a mainstream media issue that can be openly discussed. Shorten himself has now made it the subject of public debate. But it also undermines the threat from Murdoch on the issue: his papers can still run a smear campaign against Shorten, but he has got on the front foot and ensured it can’t be used to blackmail him.

How much the decision costs him remains to be seen. But for the moment, Shorten’s initiative looks the smarter long-term play than staying silent.___

As I've said before, the euro is the gold standard with moral authority. And that last part is the problem. Europeans don't think the euro represents civilization, but rather the defense of it. It's a paper monument to peace and prosperity that's made the latter impossible. So the eurocrats who have spent their lives building it are never going to tear it down, despite the fact that, as it's currently constructed, the euro is standing between them and recovery.

I just ordered one.

Australian buyers should skip Amazon (they wont ship to Australia) and order from here instead http://goo.gl/YK95vZ

If you own an Android cell phone, you've probably taken few photospheres, which are difficult to take and pain in a butt to watch. But fear not! Google released some time ago #cardboard  project (to be exact during last Google I/O 2014), and now it is becoming very popular. Reason, it's very cheap, less than $30 and bringing you immersive experience like Oculus Rift, but for fraction of the cost. I know you will argue speed and responsiveness of  Oculus Rift is not even comparable with CardBoard, but for watching  photospheres and virtual tours CardBoard off the chard. Btw, +Google just released Photo Sphere Camera app for iOS.
One more interesting part about CardBoard vs Oculus Rift, resolution is the same on both 1080p/2, however Oculus Rift has peripheral view, which achieved by optical distortion. So, as result I am anticipating to get new #Nexus6  which should have better resolution and density - yes we can see individual pixels on the screen, but who's complaining toy cost me $25 from +Amazon.com http://goo.gl/ZHPYaV___I just ordered one.

What useful things do the elite do?

Comparing the elite (the .1% etc) to the rest of us, I sometimes remark that they use a lot more resources than "the little people", and that while we spend a lot of effort automating the jobs away of us lesser folk, we should really be targeting the elite. ie: The Elite are Insufficiently Automated.

But if we would automate them, first we need to know what useful functions they perform (if any). What do you think the elite do, that we'd need to replace if they were to disappear?

It's hard not to be pleased, although I suppose we should be a little sad for the 1,000 odd jobs lost. Few interesting revelations.
