Daniel Mihai Popescu62,006I am happy to have you as friends! This is another Great Engagers circle, and if you'll be mentioned in the comments (since my notification sending system still doesn't work), means that you are members in it.A "+1" will be more than sufficient, only if you have the time :) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  For others, you do what you want, but this is a great circle to add to yours, as all my other public circles.Thank you for being here, and I wish you a great weekend!2014-10-25 14:28:5549713174181
Daniel Mihai Popescu61,717One of my Engagers circles :)Dedicated to you, it comes without string attached. I just hope you don't mind mentioning you all in the comments, since my notifications don't work. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  A "+1" will be more than enough for members :)I am sad when I see someone removing accounts he follows after a couple of weeks of "inactivity", no matter the communication and the good collaboration they have with the removed accounts. People letting the software to work for them, people with less defined scopes here, or quite very good defined.I have just used +Circloscope to have a look on the activity :)I remember faces, I remember names, I know guys from other networks, I can't bring myself to remove them when they haven't posted here for more than one week, one month, or even three.Where are we going? Isn't there enough room for everybody, or are some of you just bored of my rants?I hope you enjoy this circle, and tell me if I forgot someone. Thank you!2014-10-21 21:34:32481001
Daniel Mihai Popescu61,295This circle is called Survivors!  It is dedicated to all of you :)I waited to fill it a little more with some new faces :)I hope you are notified, if not, nothing changes.Just a "+1" is more than enough (and I speak here for the members) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  It is an homage to you, so there's no need to share it, there are no conditions. If I forgot any of you, please forgive me and tell me, instead of uncircle me without notice :)I never was in "follow me and I'll follow you back" game, not here, nor on Twitter, where people are more liberal :)I'm out of the sharing circles game, as most of you already have noticed, and it's up to anyone to do whatever he/she/it likes with that :) I thank to any of you who kept in their public shared circles the time I have been absent (there was a very motivated reason for it), and I'm absolutely passive about the people who took me out of their public circles, considering they have not an immediate benefit from that. Oh, and I'm very glad because some circle spammers have unfollowed me. I do not really deserve their company :)Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends!2014-10-18 18:08:10469333748

Graeme McRae30,763Graeme's Circle of Active GooglePlussers! . . . This is a curated circle of active people on Google+ If you add this circle, you will see hundreds of new posts per day in your stream from this circle alone. If you’re in the circle (you’ll know ‘cause I notified you) then please reshare it! It's a circle of people I started following in May, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of weeks since then. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream, read on. . .How did these people get in the circle?. . . They must have posted something interesting, at least once, because I don't follow people unless they post something interesting. By now, you're probably not surprised by the number of people on G+ whose pages are full of repeated posts, videos without comments, "what's up" and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since they were added?. . . After I add someone, I keep them in the circle of people I added around the same time. Then, several times a week, I go through all my circles and delete people who haven't posted (something visible to me) in the last 7 days. So the people who are left in the circle are consistent posters. That says something important about them, because consistency is a proxy for quality.Wait. What? Why is consistency is a proxy for quality?. . . I'll admit it: I don't have the science to back up that wild statement, but I'll tell you why I believe it to be true. People who post crap don't get a lot of followers, and the few followers they have don't bother to engage. After a while, the crappy-posting people start to think G+ is a ghost town, and they lose interest (or funding). On the other hand, the people who share (or re-share) interesting things get followers and engagement, slowly at first, but ever increasing, and this outpouring of love is what keeps them going. That's what I think anyway, and I'm sticking to it.People who share interesting things get lots of followers. . . This is another half-baked theory of mine, but hear me out. You might think this makes sense: Google+ offers suggestions of people to follow, especially to new users. Google+'s only source of names to suggest is other G+ers like yourself. The G+ers who have the most engagement are the ones Google+ knows will be good to follow, so these people get put out as suggestions more often, and some percentage of those suggestions are taken up. So the more engagement you have, the more Google+ will suggest you as a person to follow, and so the more followers you'll get. Completing the theory: the more interesting the stuff you share (or reshare), the more engagement you'll get, and hence the more followers you'll get.Do you punish people for unfollowing you by unfollowing them back?. . . No. Well, not directly. I only unfollow people who haven’t posted in the past 7 days. If you posted privately to your circles or your extended circles, and then you unfollow me, then I won’t see those posts any more, and I’ll assume you haven’t posted in the past 7 days, and, yes, I will unfollow you in that case. But if your posts are public, my methodology doesn’t care whether you follow me.Do you promise me there won’t be any spammers in this circle?. . . No, I can’t make that promise for 2 reasons. First, one person’s spam is another person’s interesting post. A plumbing contractor who posts fascinating details of pipe fitting, each with a link to his company’s website might go either way. Second, a clever spammer will intersperse interesting posts with annoying spam -- maybe 52014-08-12 05:51:49351364762

Daniel Mihai Popescu52,356They are the Survivors, a circle I'm going to share more often, because it has its own dynamic :)I hope you receive the notification this time, and if you receive it, it means you are in the circle, so you are not required to do anything. Just a "+1" from your part will be greatly appreciated, there's no need to spend your precious time with sharing or commenting.For non-members, I think you have to figure out on your own what to do, because usually I don't promise anything, I'm don't barter my circles membership. If you add the circle, it's definitively your gain, so I strongly suggest you to do so. The circle's title is not in vain, it really suggests the circle's dynamic. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  This, like all of my other circles, is an homage to you.Thank you very much for being my friends!2014-06-26 14:46:19412442853

Daniel Mihai Popescu51,115This is Wonders, a circle you all know!A "+1" will be greatly appreciated, but of course it is not a requirement. You are not required to do anything :)I hope you receive the notification, and if it is so, it means you are in the circle. The circle is old, but I still do some experiments. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  When I created the circle, I was curious if you have any proposition of friends to be included :) I still wonder if you have such friends. I shall create another circle, or a combination, I'll see :)Anyway, if you are original enough, and comment on what you like, you don't need to be shared in a circle to become famous, don't you think?If you add this circle (this is the reason of me sharing it), you will have a pleasant surprise on your stream! If you don't believe me, it's your loss.2014-06-18 17:20:574441173784

Daniel Mihai Popescu49,376This is called Circle Zero and the great majority of you already know it :)There are a few "follow backs" in it, along my precious Invincible, and some other few people I respect! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle #maximumperformance I share from Firefox this time, and if you don't receive the notification yet again, it means I'm "punished" by Google Plus :)Of course I'm joking, it means nothing, actually. Nobody is compelled to do anything, even if you receive the notification, meaning you are in the circle and you don't have to check it (this operation being made so difficult lately, by our dear G+ programmers, but I understand them: "simpler is better", so I agree). Besides, as +Adriana Popovici so accurately noticed, G+ oriented itself through communication with people not being members of your circles than outlying the members. You see now the "add" or "follow" button when checking out an account is blatantly RED, since your friends have a white one, with the "circle symbol". Nice!Oh, when you notice you're members, a simply "+1" will move me, if not, it's all the same. I keep only valuable people in my circles, so they don't have anything to change to upset me, just maybe to leave me out completely. Even that, won't be the end of the world, you know?Some of the members aren't what you call "engagers", some are not even as active as you may expect, this doesn't make them less valuable, so you can take my word, because I vouch for them!For non members: It is recommended that you add the circle, it'll give you a colorful and meaningful stream :) It's the least I can do, and if I'll make more, you'll notice in time :).Sharing the circle is not going to melt my cold heart, so please, do what you feel, and it is time to learn how to handle elegantly this delicate matter on Google Plus. When sharing the circle, please don't promise your followers things in my name, like "you will be followed back" or stuff like that, because I'm not responsible for the circle members' behavior :)Good luck! Please!2014-05-27 15:09:34480492256

OF the three most fundamental scientific questions about the human condition, two have been answered.

First, what is our relationship to the rest of the universe? Copernicus answered that one. We’re not at the center. We’re a speck in a large place.

Second, what is our relationship to the diversity of life? Darwin answered that one. Biologically speaking, we’re not a special act of creation. We’re a twig on the tree of evolution.

Third, what is the relationship between our minds and the physical world? Here, we don’t have a settled answer. We know something about the body and brain, but what about the subjective life inside?

This illustration shows a galaxy in the early Universe that is releasing material via two symmetric outflows triggered by the supermassive black hole hosted at its center.

The effects of supermassive black holes on their host galaxies pose a tricky puzzle: numerical simulations suggest that star formation in early galaxies might be suppressed by the activity of the supermassive black holes at their centers. In some galaxies, the central black hole accretes matter at extraordinarily high rates, giving rise to very bright emission across the electromagnetic spectrum; these galaxies are said to host an active galactic nucleus (AGN). The accretion process is accompanied by the outflow of material and, if it is powerful enough, this may eventually drain the galaxy's reservoir of gas, halting its star-forming activity.

Imagine we could develop a precise drug that amplifies people's aversion to harming others; on this drug you won't hurt a fly, everyone taking it becomes like Buddhist monks. Who should take this drug? Only convicted criminals—people who have committed violent crimes? Should we put it in the water supply? These are normative questions. These are questions about what should be done....  These are conversations that we need to have because we don't want to get to the point where we have the technology but haven't had this conversation, because then terrible things could happen.

The virus has landed

This is a virus called a T4 bacteriophage.  It has landed on a bacterium.   Now it's getting ready to lower its tail, puncture the bacterium's cell wall, and inject its DNA.

When this happens:

1.  It immediately stops the bacterium's own genes from being expressed.

2.  In 5 minutes, its DNA starts synthesizing enzymes needed to make new copies of the virus.

3.  In 10 minutes, its DNA starts replicating.

4.  In 12 minutes, new copies of the virus start being formed.

5.  In 30 minutes, the bacterium bursts, releasing 100 to 150 new copies of the virus!

This deadly machine is only 0.2 micrometers tall.  Its DNA - the instruction book that makes everything work - is contained in the head, which is shaped like an icosahedron.  The DNA is 169,000 base pairs long, and itcodes for... more »

During an unexpected moment of clarity Tuesday, open-minded man Blake Richman was suddenly struck by the grim realization that he's squandered a significant portion of his life listening to everyone's bullshit, the 38-year-old told reporters.

A visibly stunned and solemn Richman, who until this point regarded his willingness to hear out the opinions of others as a worthwhile quality, estimated that he's wasted nearly three and a half years of his existence being open to people's half-formed thoughts, asinine suggestions, and pointless, dumb%$#k stories.

By his estimates, Richman's receptiveness has resulted in 160 irreplaceable hours of listening to grossly uninformed political opinions, 300 hours of carefully hearing out both sides of pointless arguments, and at least a month of listening to his parents' bullshit about how important it is to beo... more »

Our brains are plastic. They continually remould neural connections as we learn, experience and adapt. Now researchers are asking if new understanding of these processes can help us train our brains.

When a group of experimental psychologists moved into their new lab space in Cambridge earlier this year, they took a somewhat unconventional approach to refurbishing their tea room: they had the walls tiled with the Café Wall Illusion.

In the Café Wall Illusion, the brain takes into account the surrounding tiles, but it also relies on our previous knowledge acquired through training and experience when interpreting a new situation

What a monumental achievement for human civilization!

To understand the enormity of the Rosetta mission, look no further than its name. The moniker draws inspiration from the Rosetta Stone, the ancient slab of stone emblazoned with three ancient languages. The stone unlocked the mysteries of ancient Egyptian civilization. And now, a spacecraft bearing its name hurtling toward a comet 300 million miles away wants to do the same — this time, for the universe.

Professor Carla Shatz of Stanford University and her colleagues have discovered a way to revert an adult brain to the “plastic”, child-like state that is more able to form new connections quickly.  The technical term “plastic” implies the ability to adapt or shape itself to new conditions.  The striking results were revealed through experiments on a protein expressed in brain cells known as PirB (this is the name of the protein in the animal model, in humans it is called “LilrB2″), which seems to stabilize neural connections.

Stability protects against loss of learned skills or information, but at the same time hampers the acquisition of new ones.  The scientists found that interfering with the normal function of the neuron-stability molecule PirB had the remarkable effect of reverting at least one part of the brain to a more malleable state that could easily recover from damage,rewire itself ... more »

Behind the hellish Ebola epidemic ravaging West Africa lies an agent that fittingly embodies the mad contradictions of a nightmare. It is alive yet dead, simple yet complex, mindless yet prophetic, seemingly able to anticipate our every move.

For scientists who study the evolution and behavior of viruses, the Ebola pathogen is performing true to its vast, ancient and staggeringly diverse kind. By all evidence, researchers say, viruses have been parasitizing living cells since the first cells arose on earth nearly four billion years ago.

Some researchers go so far as to suggest that viruses predate their hosts. That they essentially invented cells as a reliable and renewable resource they could then exploit for the sake of making new viral particles.

Why curious people are better at learning.


A recent study has shown that curiosity leads to chemical changes in the brain that help us to learn and retain information more efficiently.


We are bombarded with so much information every day, why does some of it stick while the rest is forgotten? Researchers at the University of California, Davis have found insight into why curiosity plays such a crucial role in learning. As it turns out, our minds actually reward us for seeking out the information we are most interested in.


The study was conducted with 19 volunteers who were asked to review 100 trivia questions. The volunteers were told to rate each question based on how curious they were about knowing the answer. Next, they looked at an answer to each question while their brain activity was monitored by an MRI machine.

Next, they looked at an answer to each question while their brain activity was monitored by an MRI machine.


The research team watched the pleasure centers of the participants’ brains. They saw that these centers lit up when they encountered the answers to questions they were most curious about. "When the participants' curiosity was piqued, the parts of their brains that regulate pleasure and reward lit up,” says Maanvi Singh from NPR. "Curious minds also showed increased activity in the hippocampus, which is involved in the creation of memories.”


The results of this study were published in the journal Neuron.

See the light

Bacteriorhodopsin is a protein found in archaeal cells. It uses the energy from light to pump protons across the cell membrane. The resulting proton gradient is used to drive the ATP making machinery that powers the cell. Our eyes have a similar light sensitive protein called rhodopsin in their retinas. Rhodopsins have seven trans-mebrane helixes and contain a molecule of retinal which triggers the protein when it absorbs a photon of light.

Virus
A virus is an infectious agent that occupies a place near the boundary between the living and the nonliving. It is a particle much smaller than a bacterial cell, consisting of a small genome of either DNA or RNA surrounded by a protein coat. Viruses enter host cells and hijack the enzymes and materials of the host cells to make more copies of themselves. Viruses cause a wide variety of diseases in plants and animals. (http://goo.gl/QtFLXp)

Virions
Virions are virus particles: they are the inert carriers of the genome, and are assembled inside cells, from virus-specified components. They do not grow, and do not form by division. They may be regarded as the extracellular phase of the virus: they are exactly analogous to "spacecraft" in that they take viral genomes from cell to cell, and they... more »

(http://goo.gl/GEqtCR)

Virulence
Virulence is a quantitative trait, representing the extent of the pathology caused by a microorganism. Virulence is therefore a trait expressing the interaction between a pathogen and its host. Virulence is usually correlated to the pathogen’s capacity to multiply in the host represented, for example, by the virion titre when symptoms appear, or the rate of multiplication. It can also be affected by host and environmental factors, such as the transmission route or type of tissue/life-stage infected. For example, a pathogen may be virulent when infecting one type of tissue and non-virulent when infecting a different tissue. Virulence is therefore dependent on the nature of the infection. Virulence is also a relative trait, referring to the differences in the degree of pathology caused by strains of the same pathogen, or differences in the efficiency with which different strains can cause symptoms. For example, a pathogen strain that requires few particles to produce disease symptoms would be more virulent than a strain that requires many particles to produce the same symptoms.

 Dr. Mehmet Oz has been under fire recently for promoting weight loss products on TV's "The Dr. Oz Show" that aren't backed by a lot of scientific evidence. Now a study supporting one of those products, diet pills made with green coffee bean extract, has been withdrawn by its lead researchers.

"The sponsors of the study cannot assure the validity of the data so we, Joe Vinson and Bryan Burnham, are retracting the paper," the pair of scientists posted online.

The small study, published in 2012 in the journal Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity: Targets and Therapy, found that the main ingredient in green coffee beans helped human participants lose, on average, 18 pounds over 22 weeks. It was funded by Applied Food Sciences Inc.

T-Cell Therapy Puts Leukemia Patients in Extended Remission

An experimental therapy has brought prolonged remissions to a high proportion of patients who were facing death from advanced leukemia after standard treatments had failed, researchers are reporting.

The therapy involves genetically programming cells from the patient’s own immune system to fight the disease.

When Concetta Antico looks at a leaf, she sees much more than just green. “Around the edge I’ll see orange or red or purple in the shadow; you might see dark green but I’ll see violet, turquoise, blue,” she said. “It’s like a mosaic of color.”

Antico doesn’t just perceive these colors because she’s an artist who paints in the impressionist style. She’s also a tetrachromat, which means that she has more receptors in her eyes to absorb color. The difference lies in Antico's cones, structures in the eyes that are calibrated to absorb particular wavelengths of light and transmit them to the brain. The average person has three cones, which enables him to see about one million colors. But Antico has four cones, so her eyes are capable of picking up dimensions and nuances of color—an estimated 100 million of them—that the average person cannot. “It’s shocking to me howlittle color people are see... more »

This illustration shows a galaxy in the early Universe that is releasing material via two symmetric outflows triggered by the supermassive black hole hosted at its center.

The effects of supermassive black holes on their host galaxies pose a tricky puzzle: numerical simulations suggest that star formation in early galaxies might be suppressed by the activity of the supermassive black holes at their centers. In some galaxies, the central black hole accretes matter at extraordinarily high rates, giving rise to very bright emission across the electromagnetic spectrum; these galaxies are said to host an active galactic nucleus (AGN). The accretion process is accompanied by the outflow of material and, if it is powerful enough, this may eventually drain the galaxy's reservoir of gas, halting its star-forming activity.

OF the three most fundamental scientific questions about the human condition, two have been answered.

First, what is our relationship to the rest of the universe? Copernicus answered that one. We’re not at the center. We’re a speck in a large place.

Second, what is our relationship to the diversity of life? Darwin answered that one. Biologically speaking, we’re not a special act of creation. We’re a twig on the tree of evolution.

Third, what is the relationship between our minds and the physical world? Here, we don’t have a settled answer. We know something about the body and brain, but what about the subjective life inside?

Neuroscientists have found that a gene mutation that arose more than half a million years ago may be key to humans’ unique ability to produce and understand speech.

Researchers from MIT and several European universities have shown that the human version of a gene called Foxp2 makes it easier to transform new experiences into routine procedures. When they engineered mice to express humanized Foxp2, the mice learned to run a maze much more quickly than normal mice.

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a highly selective membrane system that prevents unwanted passage of molecules into the brain extracellular fluid. Consequently, the BBB also significantly hinders the effectiveness of drugs used to treat a number of neurological disorders. Roche has engineered a protein module that can greatly enhance the passage of therapeutic agents across the blood-brain barrier.
