Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321214692CC G+

Simona AN23,183+Todaysmemory THANK YOU CircleSince last year, I started to post memories of the day - celebrations, great people in painting, sculpture, music, dance, literature, film, science, etc. A tribute to the people who have left a mark in history, an international celebration, all with a short summary. I named these posts Today's Memory. When I saw that my memories captured attention, I create a page, +Todaysmemory (with big help from my friend +Angela Ghinea) and I discovered a lot of people with the same tastes and posts.Here's a BIG THANK YOU Circle with the best friends and Sources of +Todaysmemory.  A group of extremely interesting people, if you add them you won't regret!If you like the memories, I invite you to send, with hashtag #todaysmemory  and curator me, +Simona AN everything you think deserves your tribute!

Trever McGhee18,273+Take2seconds to click the add button on this circle!Last week +Kurt Smith asked people to name 5 people they thought should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'.  He received 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.We were honored to be among them, so we've created two circles to honor those chosen.This is the second of 2 circles from that list.Their all worthy of a follow .. a circle  to see what they bring to your stream.Check them out for a week...keep the ones that you like at the end of the week and then put the rest aside for another time :-))))People always ask me to add them or another person to the next circle when I share circles from other people to help them connect with others...Well I can't add you to their circle but what I can do is create another circle for you.So if you would like to be in the next one or would like to recommend someone,1st. please leave a comment of why you or they should be in the next circle, why people should circle you back.2nd. please share this circle to the public stream to help these people connect with others.I'll create a circle once a week with your suggestion.P.S. if your in the above circle and would like to be in the next one, just let me know. #bestofgoogleplus   #bestofgoogleplus2012   #circle   #circles   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircles   #sharedmycircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #publicshare   #publiccircles   #publicsharedcircles   #publiccirclesproject   #addmetoyourcircles   #awesomecircle   #awesomeness   #awesomepeople   #awesomecircle  +Circles 2013-01-02 20:58:1649052430CC G+
Kurt Smith21,124Here's The 'Best of Google Plus 2012' Circle Share (Circle 3 of 3)Last week I asked other plussers to name 5 Plussers they think should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'. They nominated others based on what they think makes a really good Google Plusser - original & quality content; makes you think, laugh, & enjoy Google Plus more; engages with others; shares and helps others; etc. We got 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.This is the third of 3 Circle Shares of those named the 'Best of Google Plus' - this circle contains those who got 2-3 votes. These are plussers other plussers think are among the Best on Google Plus and I believe we should all circle and consider following them because other quality plussers we can trust recommend following them.Like the other circles I've curated ('Thought Provokers' & 'Plussers Who Give A Boost') you can only get in these circles on the recommendation of another plusser (no "add me" going on here). So this is a quality group that should be recognized for making Google Plus better for all of us.Let's encourage quality on G+ and the best way we can do that is to Add & Share these circles. It took some work to put this together, so the best 'thank you' you can give me (and the nominees) is to add, share and encourage your followers to do the same.Circle 1 (those who got 4+ nominations): http://goo.gl/tAePDCircle 2 (those who 2-3 nominations): http://goo.gl/7IBkVWondering who nominated you?

Shells Bells5,180Best of 2012 CircleThis circle is some of the G+ awesomeness that has enriched my life this year - and I am grateful.  A while back +Sean Cowen asked what G+ has meant to us.  After watching Brene Brown's TEDTalks (http://www.ted.com/speakers/brene_brown.html) I realize that for me, G+ has been a lesson in vulnerability and courage. I have been humbled by the courage of every one of you.  I love that women post no make-up pictures and that you all speak your minds (your clever, creative, crazy & beautiful minds...). I have been blown away by the public sharing regarding topics as deep as abuse and depression - talk about vulnerability and putting yourself out there - absolutely amazing.  By doing so, you have helped others in ways you may never know.  <3Inspiration's what you are to me, inspiration, look... see.  Led Zeppelin - Thank YouYou have inspired me. (warning TL:DR personal stuff below) Oh, & I did include some new peeps.  If they're freaks, blame +Ben Zaitz.This month, I gathered some courage and let three people see me in, what was to me, a position of vulnerability.The first was a very dear friend from Elementary School.  For the past few years, I avoided HIRLing because I was ashamed of my weight and I guess I didn't want to disappoint him.  The same reason recently kept me from seeing a dear High School friend.  I saw them and each did not care that I was not perfect, they love me for me.  Mann, it was great to see their faces again, talk in person and have some non-virtual hugs.  <3I attribute this change in thinking to your responses to a July post: https://plus.google.com/115807723984369772514/posts/Ui2TQBPuELKAmong the other awesome words from you peeps, +Alvin Stearns wrote, "Never again compare yourself to others so that you make unfair and useless judgments about yourself or others.  That includes comparing yourself to you in the past."  The third was that, with your encouragement on a private post, I actually asked a guy out.  I would have never even considered doing that a year ago.  (He has a gf, so no deal, but it's all good cause he was cool.)I know these are little things, but I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.  And thank you to +matthew rappaport, Bobbi Jo Woods and +Tiffany Henry for coordinating the first NYCHIRL.

Gabriel García Márquez, one of my favorite writers, has passed away. I recently finished this excellent biography and recommend it wholeheartedly:

http://www.amazon.com/Gabriel-Garc%C3%ADa-M%C3%A1rquez-Life-Vintage/dp/0307472868
Gabriel García Márquez: A Life

Rest in peace, Gabo. The world mourns your passing and will miss you very much.

Before reaching the final line, however, he had already understood that he would never leave that room, for it was foreseen that the city of mirrors (or mirages) would be wiped out by the wind and exiled from the memory of men at the precise moment when Aureliano Babilonia would finish deciphering the parchments, and that everything written on them was unrepeatable since time immemorial and forever more, because races condemned to one hundred years of solitude did not have a second opportunity on earth.

Neurosurgeons successfully implant 3D printed skull

A 22-year-old woman from the Netherlands who suffers from a chronic bone disorder -- which has increased the thickness of her skull from 1.5cm to 5cm, causing reduced eyesight and severe headaches -- has had the top section of her skull removed and replaced with a 3D printed implant.

The operation was performed by a team of neurosurgeons at the University Medical Centre Utrecht and the university claims this is this first instance of a successful 3D printed cranium that has not been rejected by the patient.

Wildlife Broadcaster Sir David Attenborough Provides Commentary on Women's Olympic Curling

Here is some fun narration on Olympic curling in the style of The Gods Must Be Crazy.

By coincidence, a few days earlier I had been entertaining the idea of a cleaning lady who comes out of nowhere to become a new international curling sensation, an instant legend, along the lines of George Plimpton's Sidd Finch (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sidd_Finch - link to story here: http://goo.gl/q31b7). All those years of sweeping floors and pumping Windex translates into phenomenal skills that turn a cleaning lady into the next international superstar.

I came across this as I was looking up the tune for the "You're nothing but treble" post (http://goo.gl/vIGJIN). I had not seen this before, but it reminds me of the Korean baby singing Hey Jude (http://goo.gl/ZM6RNI), which I presume the whole world has seen many times. My little ones love the Beatles, too, and it's heartwarming to see the next crop of humans warming to the band.

Charlie Chaplin’s only novel to see ‘light’ of day after six decades

“Footlights,” the only prose fiction ever written by the legendary actor, will soon be made public after remaining unpublished for almost 66 years. The 1948 34,000-word novella, which Chaplin later turned into a script for his 1952 film “Limelight,” depicts a once famous-turned-washed up stage clown named Calvero, who saves a dancer from suicide — an act that inspires him to attempt a comeback with her encouragement.

Chaplin’s Calvero — written during a time when the U.S. government accused the comedic actor of being a communist sympathizer — reflected Chaplin’s state of mind as his film career was dwindling and the American public had turned against him.

This sounds like a huge discovery. Does anyone have any idea why an acid bath would cause an adult cell to revert to a stem cell? Now I'm curious what happens to cancerous cells when they are bathed in acid.

New Way to Make Stem Cells in 30 Minutes

Vacanti, along with Haruko Obokata at the Riken Center for Developmental Biology in Kobe, Japan, and colleagues have discovered a different way to rewind adult cells – without touching the DNA. The method is striking for its simplicity: all you need to do is place the cells in a stressful situation, such as an acidic environment.

The idea that this might work comes from a phenomenon seen in the plant kingdom, whereby drastic environmental stress can change an ordinary cell into an immature one from which a whole new plant can arise. For example, the presence of a specific hormone has been shown to transform a singlea... more »

Here in Korea, students spend a lot of time studying, or rather being thrust into situations where they are supposed to be studying. The inevitable boredom in front of nothing but a desk with books, notebook, and pencil produces these skills.

Other skills include textbook spinning:

A bath without water

One question I have for the audience today is: On the gravel roads of Limpopo (northernmost province of South Africa), with an allowance of 50 rand a week (~US$4.50), I came up with a way for the world not to bathe. What's stopping you?

Not a proof, as it could have been just a close approximation, but it's what I call an "engineer's proof." For an actual visual proof:

In Syria, sleeping between his parents.

I wanted to share this with you because it served as such a potent reminder of why I do what I do. My family has been shaped by war; everyone's lives were shaped by the wars they survived (and others didn't), by the places they fled to, by the fears of other wars to come. 

Our world is broken. It is broken in so many ways that sometimes it's hard to count. This is the consequence of things we cannot control: of the lack of infinite resources, of our natural tendencies to want to protect ourselves at the expense of others, of history, of habit. It is the consequence of a universe with free will in it.

These are things we can change. We have exceptional power in the world: not infinite power, but some power in each of our hands, and great power combined. If we have any useful purpose, it is to fix the evils of the world.more »

I just tracked down this video and managed to narrow down the creature whose image I captured to either a Macroglossum bombylans (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macroglossum_bombylans) or a Macroglossum stellatarum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macroglossum_stellatarum), both of which are also known as the hummingbird hawk-moth or sometimes hummingmoth.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about Macroglossum stellatarum:

Its long proboscis and its hovering behavior, accompanied by an audible humming noise, make it look remarkably like a hummingbird while feeding on flowers. It should not be confused with the moths called hummingbird moths in North America, genus Hemaris, members of the same family and with similar appearance and behavior. The resemblance to hummingbirds is an example of convergent evolution. . . . Its visual abilities have been much studied, and it has been shown to havea ... more »

I captured these images with my smart phone during a visit to a botanical garden earlier in the fall. At the time I wasn't at all certain that this was a hummingbird because it was so small -- about the size of a large bumblebee. It certainly flew around just like a hummingbird, but it also seemed more like an insect, though it moved around so fast that I couldn't really see it.

Coccolithophores are single celled eukaryotic phytoplankton that synthesize intricate exoskeletons from crystals of calcium carbonate.  The functions of these coccoliths are unknown, and may include buoyancy, osmotic regulation, protection from UV light, predation, or mechanical shock.  When nutrient and light conditions are optimal, coccolithophores can form massive plankton blooms that are visible from space.  Large numbers of these organisms can accumulate on the ocean floor forming chalk deposits such as the White Cliffs of Dover.

The first three images, created by Italian art director Marco Sodano, are the result of my search after coming across this post (http://goo.gl/a4gCwU) by +Marjolein Caniels a couple of days ago. As an introduction to the works, Marco Sodano writes "All the children are authentic artists with LEGO" (http://goo.gl/C8E6cU).

The last two images turned up in the course of my search, but they are not by the same artist, and the very last doesn't appear to be LEGO.

(Yet More Amazing) Changes Ahead

According to this CNET article (http://goo.gl/46Stha), Amazon expects to be using small drones to deliver packages to customer doorsteps within 30 minutes of their order in the next five years. That bodes ill for the future job prospects of bike messengers who deliver packages.

I'm curious about the risks not only of a faulty drone or package falling from the sky and seriously injuring a pedestrian, but also of the possibility that a passer-by will steal the drone as it lands, then hack the drone for nefarious purposes.

Having said that, this is a far better use of drones than its current usage by el presidente de los Estados Unidos.

This is haunting on more than one level. I wish I could see a full video of the concert.

Pianist Maria João Pires panics as she realises the orchestra has started the wrong concerto…

This is quite extraordinary. The wonderful Maria João Pires is ready to play a Mozart piano concerto with the Amsterdam Concertgebouw conducted by Riccardo Chailly, only to hear the orchestra begin playing another Mozart concerto – no 20 in D minor, K466, not what she was expecting or had prepared for. Can you imagine her horror? You'll have to watch the film below to find out what happened next.

GRACE HOPPER:

DAVID LETTERMAN:

GRACE HOPPER:

Oh Lesus Chvist. . . .

Vatican Misspells 'Jesus' on Papal Medals

So much for papal infallibility. Embarrassed Vatican officials are recalling 6,000 commemorative medallions made in honor of Pope Francis after misspelling "Jesus" as "Lesus."

They say that God is in the details, but what about Jesus? The Vatican has had to recall 6,000 commemorative medals bearing the name "Lesus" where "Jesus" should have been.

The gold, silver and bronze medals were made by the Italian State Mint to commemorate the beginning of Pope Francis's papacy.

The medallions, which went on sale Tuesday, depict Pope Francis and a Latin phrase that he has said inspired him as a young man to pursue a life in the church.

In Latin, the phrase should have read: "Vidit ergo Jesus publicanum et quia miserando... more »

Only minutes after viewing this awesome video, I came across a (private) conversation here on g+ between (seemingly/outwardly) sweet folks who are apparently as protective-to-the-death of their laptops as the woman presented here. I won't mention names, but +Rajini Rao, +Zee L, and +K. Al Abdalla will appreciate this.

Gone are the days

when gentlemen took off their hats in the presence of ladies and when people used to review anvils on social networks. Rather than bemoan this sad state, I decided to act and thus just wrote my first ever product review on Amazon.

Why an anvil? My cousin is making plans to visit Korea and asked whether I needed anything from the States. Most things are readily available here, so this was the first thing that naturally came to mind. I ordered a pair, but I have yet to decide whether to use them as bookends or speaker stands. Whatever the case, they should fit quite easily in the overhead compartments.

Now I'm itching to do a few more reviews. I wasn't able to find used condoms on Amazon, so the niche is wide open for third-party vendors. Aside from that, I'm at a loss in trying to come up with new products for review. Any suggestions would... more »

Comparing Sperm Whales To Sperm: A Swimming Contest

"Ready? Get Set? Go! Let's compare a sperm whale plowing through the ocean to a human sperm plowing through a glass of water: The whale barely notices the water it's in; the sperm — oh, gee — it's got a problem. How it solves that problem — being much closer to the size of the water molecules around it — is ... well, masterful."

Once "Extinct" Pinocchio Lizard Pokes His Nose Out

This ain't no lie: The Pinocchio lizard was thought to be extinct for 50 years, but has been rediscovered in the cloud forests of Ecuador.

[. . . .]

Also called the Pinocchio anole (an anole is a type of lizard) . . . was first discovered in 1953 . . . but wasn't seen between the 1960s and 2005, when an ornithologist saw one crossing a road in the same remote area in northwest Ecuador. This is only the third time scientists have spotted it since 2005.

[. . . .]

Pinocchio anoles (Anolis proboscis) are an endangered species and have been found in only four locations, mostly along a single stretch of road, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, a global environmental group. They have one of the smallest ranges of any lizard in the world.

These paintings are breathtakingly beautiful.

Pictures paint a thousand words
Autistic artist, 3, can't talk

A LITTLE autistic girl who cannot talk has stunned the art world — by painting pictures that speak volumes.

Three-year-old Iris Grace Halmshaw’s parents put her work on the internet and were amazed to be swamped with inquiries from would-be buyers.

[. . . .]

Leicester University arts expert Michaela Butter said: “Disability is no barrier to creativity.”

Bertrand Russell (18 May 1872 – 2 February 1970)

One last question: Suppose, Lord Russell, that this film will be looked at by our descendants, like the Dead Sea scroll, in a thousand years' time. What would you think it's worth telling that generation about the life you've lived and the lessons you've learned from it?

I should like to say two things, one intellectual and one moral. The intellectual thing I should want to say to them is this: When you are studying any matter, or considering any philosophy, ask yourself only what are the facts and what is the truth that the facts bear out. Never let yourself be diverted either by what you wish to believe, or by what you think would have beneficent social effects if it were believed, but look only, and solely, at what are the facts. That is the intellectual thing that I should wish to say.

Blow away dandelion. . . .

As I was trying to figure out the answer to +nomad dimitri's picture riddle (http://goo.gl/TkU90), I thought I would take a pic of these dried dandelion flower heads, which sit in a jar in our cupboard awaiting their next incarnation as tea.

Earlier this morning (actually late last night), I did a quick post on Adam Johnson's 2013 Pulitzer Prize winning The Orphan Master's Son, an adventurous, sad, rollicking tale set in North Korea (http://goo.gl/mqaPL). In it, there is a famous North Korean actress named Sun Moon, who is so pure that she doesn't even know that some people eat flowers for food. Jun Do, the tunnel-digging, kidnapping and murdering protagonist, has a tattoo of Sun Moon on his chest. He eventually becomes Sun Moon's replacement husband, and at one point he forces her to eat a flower, presumably in hopes of foisting a... more »

I picked up this set of little cacti, along with the wood stand, while taking a drive near our place last weekend.

Don't Blame the Sea: Fishing After the Tsunami
May 6, 2013 | A beautiful documentary about one family's determination to survive on the coast of Sri Lanka.

This is quite a poignant video short. As I get older, I feel as if I have a better understanding of our connection with nature, but it's still very hard to express it in words.

I was planning on rereading The Old Man and the Sea later this month, so this is a nice primer. While I'm at it, I may as well reread The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
