Samantha Villenave1,065,391The #FirstFridayArtWalk  is a new page (+First Friday Art Walk) and hashtag/sharing project here on G+. It is open to all. Whether you are an artist, or simply an art lover, there is a way for each and every one of us, who wishes to, to participate.See starting and end times on the event above. We're going to be celebrating art and our very first First Friday for nearly three days, starting on Friday, October 5th and continuing through the weekend. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------How it works:How can one participate? I'm glad you asked! :)Artists, simply share work of your own, a painting, a drawing, a sculpture, an illustration, and add the hashtag #FirstFridayArtWalk  . The Art Walk is open to non-photographic work, in traditional, and digital media. Artists and non-artists alike are welcome to reshare the work of other artists with the #FirstFridayArtWalk  hashtag as well. This way, we should be able to get a flurry of art circulating in everyone's stream. Also, please circle +First Friday Art Walk , so that I will be able to reshare the work that you have hashtagged #FirstFridayArtWalk  , from over there. Thanks, and I look forward to seeing your work! Please feel free to invite artists and others that you feel may be interested in this event. :)Creatively, SamanthaEDIT: Since creating the event, I have learned that many of you have received multiple invitations to it. I have no idea how this happened, and you have my sincerest apologies. It was truly unintentional, and please forgive me for any frustration that this has caused. I've reported the bug to the Google+ team, and really hope that this will not happen in the future. Events are cool, spam, on the other hand, is truly anti-cool. ):G+ First Friday Art Walk2012-10-05 12:00:00206

Armando Lioss44,378“Active Engagers Shared Circle” 6.1Also known as the “Circle of Rivals” conformed by G+ users ready to stand for their points of view in an educated discussion and/or extending the discussion to their own streams... if you are looking into making your stream more dynamic, these are the guys you want to include... they are a diverse bunch of great plussers that includes liberals, progressives, conservatives, libertarians, religious, agnostics, atheists… from all around the world.In this shared circle you will find some interesting people to add to your circles, all of these G+ users currently actively engage my stream as well as other G+ users posts, so you can be sure they are getting involved in the Google Plus community.This “Active Engagers Shared Circle” version has been built with an improved algorithm that will filter occasional users and those that use hate speech or other nuisances to the common user. The main purpose of this series of Shared Circles is to expose new G+ users that are active engagers, but you may find even first generation ones in them.If you do not wish to be included in my future shared circles, please let me know with a comment to this post. I will remove you from any future shared circle I create, but I will keep you in my G+ circles.For TIPS TO GET PEOPLE TO CIRCLE YOU you may want to check:https://plus.google.com/u/0/111635150542674847021/posts/Q6c3ikBhdT3Thank you for your help making Google Plus adventure and exhilarating one… #activeusers   #engagers   #engagerscircle   #commenters   #topcircles  #circlesunday  Disclaimer: I don’t necessarily share or identify with the views of these G+ users, in fact with some of them we have completely antagonistic points of view and dissimilar interests…2014-04-07 15:38:3241991214

Sorry! :)At nearly 1000, my art circle is bursting at the seams. It's too big to share on it's own anymore, so I thought I'd break it down into several smaller circles, to share over a period of days.These people fill my streams with visual imagery, sometimes beautiful, experimental, evocative... each one has a unique perspective and practice. Most of these people are painters, drawers, illustrators, sculptors, etc. (I generally keep my photogs in a separate circle, with a few exceptions, for good measure. So yes, this circle is a different beast.)The desire to connect with other artists is what brought me to G+, and it is a huge part of why I am still here.**************************************************************************A note about this circle, and my sharing it.Every time I share a circle, I get a backlash of anger from people that are not in it. Honestly, it is to the point that I rarely share circles.Please know that this circle is not all of the artists that you should be following here on Google+, it is simply the artists that I follow. I have chosen them for personal reasons, and enjoy following each of them. I am sharing them because I believe that you may also enjoy following them.This circle reflects my choices, of whom to follow, please be respectful of that. If you are an artist, and not in my circles, please feel free to say hi and let me know in the comments, so that I can mosey on over to your profile and see your work! #art #creativity #sharedcircles  2012-08-17 16:56:459712313

I think these communication companies should be allowed to share with its customers/users just what is being shared

Google wants to prove it's not evil by getting permission from the NSA to show us what is being shared with the government and what isn't.  I'm ok with that.  In fact, I have no intention of deleting my Google account just because some spy agency is looking at my stuff.   I'm sickened and disappointed to hear from a whistleblower that this is going on, rather than hearing it directly from Google.  But I suspected it all along.

Maybe Google can fix things by telling us specifically what the NSA is looking at and why?  That would make me feel a teeny bit better about the whole thing.___I think these communication companies should be allowed to share with its customers/users just what is being shared

What could be more innocuous than plants that generate useful light? And moreover, the "glowing plants" project isn't the work of a big, bad multinational like Monsanto or a corporate-funded academic lab, the Times notes, but rather a "small group of hobbyist scientists in one of the growing number of communal laboratories springing up around the nation as biotechnology becomes cheap enough to give rise to a do-it-yourself movement."

And they're not financing the project by tapping Wall Street or big banks, but rather the democratic cash-raising method of our age par excellence, the Kickstarter campaign. The project launched April 23 with a goal to raise $65,000; it has already exceeded $480,000 in pledges, aided by glowing—so to speak—reports in Tech Crunch, Fast Company, and Forbes, as well as the promise that anyone who commits at least $40 will "receive seedsto ... more »

Getting basic information about disasters is certainly important, but being exposed to the disaster porn imagery that dominates cable television simply isn’t healthy. Just as scientific research suggested that seeing images of the World Trade Center collapsing a zillion times created a kind of virtual PTSD for everyone glued to their TV a decade ago, so too do many experts believe that being televisually force-fed repeated images of a bombing or a fertilizer plant explosion or a dude with a bloody meat cleaver can have serious psychological consequences

But a few weeks into our cable-free life, I’m here to tell you that cutting the cord and still getting the content you desire isn’t such a hassle, and is well worth the effort.

I'm still laughing lol

Women of the world, this one is for your laughs!!!!

An oldy, but always good for laughs

Pocket Taser Stun Gun, a great gift for the wife. A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Taser for their anniversary submitted this:
Last weekend I saw something at Larry’s Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest. The occasion was our 15th anniversary and I was looking for a little something extra for my wife Julie. What I came across was a 100,000-volt, pocket/purse- sized taser. The effects of the taser were supposed to be short lived, with no long-term adverse affect on your assailant, allowing her adequate time to retreat to safety….??
WAY TOO COOL! Long story short, I bought the device and brought it home.
I loaded two AAA batteries in the darn thing and pushed the button. Nothing! I was disappointed. I learned, however, that if I pushed the button and pressed it against a metal surface at the same time; I’d get
the blue arc of electricity darting back and forth between the prongs. AWESOME!!! Unfortunately, I have yet to explain to Julie what that burn spot is on the face of her microwave. Okay, so I was home alone with this new toy, thinking to myself that it couldn’t be all that bad with only two triple-A batteries, right?
There I sat in my recliner, my cat Gracie looking on intently (trusting little soul) while I was reading the directions and thinking that I really needed to try this thing out on a flesh & blood moving target. I must
admit I thought about zapping Gracie (for a fraction of a second) and thought better of it. She is such a sweet cat. But, if I was going to give this thing to my wife to protect herself against a mugger, I did
want some assurance that it would work as advertised. Am I wrong?
So, there I sat in a pair of shorts and a tank top with my reading glasses perched delicately on the bridge of my nose, directions in one hand, and taser in another. The directions said that a one-second burst would shock and disorient your assailant; a two-second burst was supposed to cause muscle spasms and a major loss of bodily control; a three-second burst would purportedly make your assailant flop on the ground like a fish out of water. Any burst longer than three seconds would be wasting the batteries.
All the while I’m looking at this little device measuring about 5″ long, less than 3/4 inch in circumference; pretty cute really and (loaded with two itsy, bitsy triple-A batteries) thinking to myself, ‘no possible
way!’ What happened next is almost beyond description, but I’ll do my best.. .?
I’m sitting there alone, Gracie looking on with her head cocked to one side as to say, ‘don’t do it dumbass,’ reasoning that a one second burst from such a tiny little ole thing couldn’t hurt all that bad. I decided
to give myself a one second burst just for heck of it. I touched the prongs to my naked thigh, pushed the button, and .. . HOLY MOTHER OF GOD . . WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION . . . WHAT THE HELL!!!
I’m pretty sure Jessie Ventura ran in through the side door, picked me up in the recliner, then body slammed us both on the carpet, over and over and over again. I vaguely recall waking up on my side in the fetal
position, with tears in my eyes, body soaking wet, both nipples on fire, testicles nowhere to be found, with my left arm tucked under my body in the oddest position, and tingling in my legs? The cat was making meowing sounds I had never heard before, clinging to a picture frame hanging above the fireplace, obviously in an attempt to avoid getting slammed by my body flopping all over the living room.
Note: If you ever feel compelled to ‘mug’ yourself with a taser, one note of caution: there is no such thing as a one second burst when you zap yourself! You will not let go of that thing until it is dislodged from your hand by a violent thrashing about on the floor.. A three second burst would be considered conservative?
IT HURT LIKE HELL!!!
A minute or so later (I can’t be sure, as time was a relative thing at that point), I collected my wits (what little I had left), sat up and surveyed the landscape. My bent reading glasses were on the mantel of the fireplace. The recliner was upside down and about 8 feet or so from where it originally was. My triceps, right thigh and both nipples were still twitching. My face felt like it had been shot up with Novocain, and my bottom lip weighed 88 lbs. I had no control over the drooling. Apparently I pooped on myself, but was too numb to know for sure and my sense of smell was gone. I saw a faint smoke cloud above my head which I
believe came from my hair. I’m still looking for my testicles and I’m offering a significant reward for their safe return!
P.s… My wife, who can’t stop laughing about my experience, loved the gift, and now regularly threatens me with it!
If you think education is difficult, try being stupid !!!___I'm still laughing lol

In a letter to members of Congress, which was obtained by NBC News, Heritage Action for America, the lobbying arm of the Heritage Foundation (which recently found itself in hot water over the racial IQ theories of the co-author of their widely panned immigration reform study, Jason Richwine, who resigned from the think tank last Friday), urged Republicans on Capitol Hill not to govern, and instead, to focus on the would-be “scandals” plaguing the Obama administration.

For parents who have been frustrated by the messages Disney princesses send to young girls (look pretty, find your prince, live happily ever after), introducing a character like Merida seemed to be a step in a good direction. As HuffPost blogger Kristen Howerton wrote when the film was first released, "'Brave' may be considered by many to be the first feminist princess movie. Merida does not pine for a prince to come to her rescue, and solves her own problems without the aid of a suitor." The character was independent, had a realistic body type, and succeeded sans prince charming. Unsurprisingly, messing with that by giving her a new look is causing an uproar

"My name is Sumi Abedin. I sewed clothing for American retailers at Tazreen garment factory in Bangladesh for a year and half. On November 24th we were working overtime at 6:30pm, when one worker came back from the restroom and shouted, “there’s a fire in the factory!” We started to smell smoke and we panicked. But when I ran towards the exit stairs, my supervisor told me it was a false alarm and ordered me to go back to work. Five minutes later it became really clear that there was a fire but we couldn’t get out through the main stairs because the supervisor had locked the collapsible metal gate.

But when I ran towards the exit stairs, my supervisor told me it was a false alarm and ordered me to go back to work. Five minutes later it became really clear that there was a fire but we couldn’t get out through the main stairs because the supervisor had locked the collapsible metal gate. 

Eventually, I saw a coworker break a window on the third floor and jump. I jumped right after him. My decision to jump was not so that I could save my life – I doubted that I could survive a jump from a third story window. I jumped to save my body so that my parents could find me; if I had stayed in that factory my body would have been burned to ash. Unlike 112 of my coworkers, I survived."___

When a Muslim fraternity from the University of Texas at Dallas took to the streets to protest against domestic violence, these striking pictures made waves around the world. Muslim America rocks — we just don’t hear about it often.

Muslim Fraternity Confronts Negative Stereotypes

Members of Alif Laam Meem, the founding chapter of the new Alpha Lambda Mu Fraternity, held signs that said “Muslims Say No to Domestic Violence” and “Muslims Say Yes to Women’s Rights” at the Men’s Rally Against Domestic Violence in Dallas on March 24 to protest the abuse of women and to put a positive face on a religion they say is often misunderstood.

“Muslims are always on defense,” fraternity president Ali Mahmoud said in a phone interview on Monday morning. “We usually get called in to explain ourselves and instead we decided to take the offense and tell people what Islam is instead of what it isn’t.”

A sophomore who was “born and raised in Dallas” on Spongebob and the occasional fast food meal just like a lot of other young Americans, Mahmoud thinks people often have the wrong idea when it comes to Islam and domestic violence.

“We wanted to clarify the misconception that any kind of domestic violence is allowed in our religion,” he said. “And it may seem apparent through the media that it’s allowed, but that’s majorly a cultural phenomenon and not an actual teaching of our religion.”

"Treatment with drugs like Botox prevents the patient from being able to make a particular expression," he said. "The new finding being reported [this week] concerns the impact of treatments for crows’ feet. The muscles around the eyes are used when forming a real smile and so it was predicted that treatment of the muscles that cause these will reduce the strength of a smile."

With the help of a questionnaire, Lewis found that those people who had a harder time smiling reported greater feelings of depression.

Previous research has found that when people smile -- even if it's a fake smile -- they actually feel less stress and happier in general.

Even al-Qaida gloats about what's possible under U.S. gun laws. In June 2011, a senior al-Qaida operative, Adam Gadahn, released a video message rallying people to take advantage of opportunities those laws provide.

"America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms," Gadahn says, explaining that "you can go down to a gun show at the local convention center" and buy a gun without a background check.

Then a faint smile crosses Gadahn's face. "So what are you waiting for?" he asks.

Under current laws, if a background check reveals that your name is on the national terrorism watch list, you're still free to walk out of a gun dealership with a firearm in your hands — as long as you don't have a criminal or mental health record.

I can't help but wonder what the endgame is. Why is it so vitally important to keep so many people unemployed? I can understand the false logic propaganda of "people who who have been unemployed for a long time are lazy and stupid", but that's just political bullshit. It's just an excuse to keep the unemployment rate high.

Why is it necessary to prevent the people who actually need money to survive from earning it? After all, more taxpayers seem to be essential because their money keeps the wealthy in their accustomed lifestyles.

Revenue-strapped state legislatures may see state lotteries as an easy way to bring in the hundreds of millions that they need for basic government services—schools, police, roads and social safety nets. But state lotteries have become an easy way to take from the least wealthy Americans and avoid the harder task of making everyone pay their fair share. State lotteries may be as old as America, but so is the country’s history of economic exploitation

You are allowed to have bad days.  Even the happiest people in the world have bad days.  The reason they are able to maintain their happiness is that they know bad times are short-lived.  The weight of mistakes, the pain of rejection, the frustration of failure, and the aches of injuries fuel the happy instead of dragging them down.  They know these events are making them wiser and stronger.  Happiness isn’t a temporary state of mind.  Happiness is an enduring faith that what goes around comes around.  It’s a lifestyle that requires acknowledging that you are willing to do the work to make tomorrow a better day.

In any situation, it’s not your specific circumstances that shape you, it’s how you react to your circumstances.  You can’t direct the wind, but you can always adjust your sails.  When it rains look for rainbows, when it’s dark out, look for stars.  Making a habit of this takes time and practice, but the positive effects will change the trajectory of your life. - via:___via +James Novak

Congress and the Administration are considering, as a means of deficit reduction, a legislative change to the consumer price index – the so-called “chained CPI.” This change would have a particularly negative impact on Social Security benefits – here’s why:

1. Chained CPI compounds over time. 
As a result of a chained CPI, there will be a 0.3% annual cut in Social Security cost of living adjustments (COLAs). Since this compounds over time, it would end up cutting the equivalent of one full month of benefits each year from a 92-year-old beneficiary. And it’s not a small cut overall – Social Security loses $112 billion over the next 10 years.

2. The greatest impact will be on the most vulnerable older Americans.
As retirees age, they have less income, fewer financial assets, and are more dependent on Social Security. Specifically, women tend to live longer thanmen and tend t... more »

And it’s not a small cut overall – Social Security loses $112 billion over the next 10 years.

2. The greatest impact will be on the most vulnerable older Americans.
As retirees age, they have less income, fewer financial assets, and are more dependent on Social Security. Specifically, women tend to live longer than men and tend to have lower incomes, so women and poorer households are more at risk of falling into poverty with any cuts to Social Security.

3. Benefits for disabled and retired veterans would be cut.
3.2 million disabled veterans and another 2 million military retirees would see their benefits cut if chained CPI is adopted. Permanently disabled veterans who started receiving disability benefits at age 30 would see their benefits cut by more than $1,400 a year at age 45, $2,300 a year at age 55 and $3,200 a year at age 65.

4. Chained CPI is a less accurate measure of inflation
Since retirees spend much more on medical care than working-age Americans, the current CPI calculations already underreport the rapidly increasing health care costs experienced by seniors. Moving to a chained CPI would exacerbate the gap between formula and actual costs.

5. Social Security does not drive deficits, and should not be cut as part of a budget deal.
Social Security is a separately financed, off-budget program – it is not a driver of deficits in the rest of the budget. Any changes to Social Security should be handled separately, not as part of a budget deal that focuses on near-term savings that harm current retirees.___

Young teachers from across the United States have told me they no longer have the ability to properly manage classrooms, not because of lack of training, not because of lack of ability, not because of lack of desire, but because of upper administration decisions to reduce statistics on classroom referrals and in-school and out-of-school suspensions. As any classroom teacher can tell you, when the students know there will be no repercussions for their actions, there will be no change in their behavior. When there is no change in their behavior, other students will have a more difficult time learning

Carbon dioxide emissions from cars in China are also growing exponentially, replacing coal-fired power plants as the major source of pollution in major Chinese cities. Deutsche Bank estimates that the number of passenger cars in China will reach 400 million by 2030, up from today’s 90 million. And the sulfur levels produced by diesel trucks in China are at least 23 times worse than those in the United States. Acid rain, caused by these emissions, has damaged a third of China’s limited cropland, in addition to forests and watersheds on the Korean Peninsula and in Japan.

Black carbon soot from China also threatens to block sunlight, lower crop yields, heat the atmosphere, and destabilize weather throughout the Pacific Rim

THIS SADDENS AND SICKENS ME AND IS AN EARLY ONE FOR CATURDAY #caturdayeveryday   #caturday  
"They’re kicking us off our land to hunt lions" - Maasai Community

Dear friends,

Within hours, Tanzania's President Kikwete could start evicting tens of thousands of the Maasai from our land so hunters can come and kill leopards and lions. Last time Avaaz raised the alarm, the President shelved the plan. Global pressure can stop him again. Click to help us urgently:

We are elders of the Maasai from Tanzania, one of Africa’s oldest tribes. The government has just announced that it plans to kick thousands of our families off our lands so that wealthy tourists can use them to shoot lions and leopards. The evictions are to begin immediately.

Last year, when word first leaked about this plan, almost one million Avaaz members rallied to our aid. Your attention and the storm it created forced the government to deny the plan, and set them back months. But the President has waited for international attention to die down, and now he’s revived his plan to take our land. We need your help again, urgently.

President Kikwete may not care about us, but he has shown he’ll respond to global media and public pressure -- to all of you! We may only have hours. Please stand with us to protect our land, our people and our world’s most majestic animals, and tell everyone before it is too late. This is our last hope:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/maasai_ss_tag_dm/?bKTRxdb&v=23791

Our people have lived off the land in Tanzania and Kenya for centuries. Our communities respect our fellow animals and protect and preserve the delicate ecosystem. But the government has for years sought to profit by giving rich princes and kings from the Middle East access to our land to kill. In 2009, when they tried to clear our land to make way for these hunting sprees, we resisted, and hundreds of us were arrested and beaten. Last year, rich princes shot at birds in trees from helicopters. This killing goes against everything in our culture.

Now the government has announced it will clear a huge swath of our land to make way for what it claims will be a wildlife corridor, but many suspect it’s just a ruse to give a foreign hunting corporation and the rich tourists it caters to easier access to shoot at majestic animals. The government claims this new arrangement is some sort of accommodation, but its effect on our people’s way of life will be disastrous. There are thousands of us who could have our lives uprooted, losing our homes, the land on which our animals graze, or both.

President Kikwete knows this deal would be controversial with Tanzania’s tourists - a critical source of national income - and does not want a big PR disaster. If we can urgently generate even more global outrage than we did before, and get the media writing about it, we know it can make him think twice. Stand with us now to call on Kikwete to stop the sell off:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/maasai_ss_tag_dm/?bKTRxdb&v=23791

This land grab could spell the end for the Maasai in this part of Tanzania and many of our community have said they would rather die than be forced from their homes. On behalf of our people and the animals who graze in these lands, please stand with us to change the mind of our President.

With hope and determination,

The Maasai elders of Ngorongoro District
