Bobo Fett0Those of you flocking here from the horror that is Facebook, or any that have been here for a while, or maybe even never a part of FB, some pointers to get you started.First thing to know if you type a question mark pretty much anywhere (as long as you don't have a text field in focus, in other words a blinking cursor where you would type text) in G+ you get a little pop up that gives you some handy basic keyboard shortcuts.If you are new here and and you are looking to make your feed more active, click the two little circles labeled Find people in the icons down the left side of the G+ page.  There you can search for people you know and add them to your circles.  Circles are what G+ uses to allow you to organize your friends list.  G+ starts you off with a few default Circles to use, you just need to add people and/or pages to things you enjoy to one of those circles.  Once you have you will see grey buttons at the top of your main feed (The page you get to if you click the big Google+ icon in the top left hand corner).  The first button is the default All circles button, here you will see all of the posts of every person/page you have added to any of your circles.  Next to the All button you will see buttons with the names of your circles.  If you click one of them you will of course see just posts from people/pages in that circle, but also on the rightish side, not quite at the top of the page, you will find a button that says Settings.  That is a drop down that gives you two check boxes.  One is "Show posts in home stream" the other is "Get Notified of new posts".  They pretty much do what they say, and "get notified" means any posts from this circle will make the number between your name and the + Share button in the top right hand corner increment and go red.  You can click that number at any time (even if it's red and 0) to get a drop down window which will show a condensed version of all posts from circles you get notified about. It will also notify you any time someone circles you back, and any +1s you have received in posts or comments you have made. As well as, comments in posts you have also commented on. On this Settings button you will also see a grey area that says Amount.  If you hover over that you get to choose More, Standard, or Fewer.  Which controls how frequently the posts from that circle appear in your feed.If you combine the above tools with the fact that you can change the name of any circle, add as many as you like, and also have people in more than one circle, you have very granular control over what posts you see and when, and exactly who can see your posts.  You can also share your circles with other people, as I have done below.  If you click the View shared circle button below, you will be able to see all the pages in a circle I call, go figure, Pages.  You can look through it and if you like everything you can just add the whole circle as a new circle.  Or, you can pick and choose which things you find interesting and add just them to your own circle that you already have or create a new circle.  Moving stuff from circle to circle is as easy and dragging the rectangle for that particular page/person and dropping onto the circle you want it to be in.  You could also just add this circle in full and then just delete the stuff you don't want (little x in top right hand corner of each rectangle when you hover over it).  Or just view this circle to get ideas for what sort of stuff can be searched for, and use the search box at the top of the Find people/Circle page to find stuff you like.Now once you have some friends added to circles, and pages/people you would like to follow added as well, your feed will get much more interesting. Now on to posting your own stuff.  In the Share what's new... field at the top of pages, you can of course type anything you like2013-05-03 19:55:12143001CC G+

FCC to propose new rules on net neutrality

+The New York Times: The Federal Communications Commission is set to propose new rules that would allow content providers to pay Internet service providers for special access to customers. 

The new rules, set to be proposed Thursday, represent a turnaround on the subject of net neutrality. Internet companies would reportedly be able to negotiate separately and charge different amounts to content companies such as Netflix and Amazon for priority services.

Duchess of Cornwall's brother dies from fall in New York

+BBC News: The Duchess of Cornwall’s brother, Mark Shand, has died from a head injury he sustained during a fall Tuesday night.

Shand, 62, reportedly slipped while lighting a cigarette and hit his head outside an after-party for a charity event in New York. 

“The Duchess, The Prince of Wales and all her family members are utterly devastated by this sudden and tragic loss,” Clarence House said in a statement.

Globe Theater to bring 'Hamlet' to 200 nations

+The Associated Press William Shakespeare's Globe theater in London has announced plans to test the Bard's maxim that "all the world's a stage" by taking "Hamlet" to every country on Earth, more than 200 in all.
"Hamlet" opens Wednesday — on Shakespeare's 450th birthday — with the first of three performances at the Globe, a reconstructed Elizabethan playhouse beside the River Thames.
Then the cast of 12 and its four-person crew will board a schooner for Amsterdam, beginning a journey that will take them to seven continents by plane, boat, train, bus and jeep.

Chelsea Manning’s name change request approved

+The Associated Press : A judge approved a name change request Wednesday to formally change convicted WikiLeaks leaker Bradley Manning’s name to Chelsea Elizabeth Manning.

"Hopefully today’s name change, while so meaningful to me personally, can also raise awareness of the fact that we (transgender) people exist everywhere in America today, and that we have must jump through hurdles every day just for being who we are,” Manning said in a statement.

+Reuters The number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan may drop well below 10,000 - the minimum demanded by the U.S. military to train Afghan forces - as the longest war in American history winds down, Obama administration officials briefed on the matter say.

Since Afghanistan's general election on April 5, White House, State Department and Pentagon officials have resumed discussions on how many American troops should remain after the current U.S.-led coalition ends its mission this year.

The decision to consider a small force, possibly less than 5,000 U.S. troops, reflects a belief among White House officials that Afghan security forces have evolved into a robust enough force to contain a still-potent Taliban-led insurgency.
