Jess + Scott + You372Turns out, selfish causes a spectrum of wildly strong emotions. Yet, when each layer is stripped away we’re left with something like this: “It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessity.” - Mandy Hale We all have the same 24 hours in a day. While technology distractions come to mind, there are other distractions that easily take precious time away from what fuels happiness and satisfaction. Whether through automation, choosing to burn the candle at both ends, nothing, or everything … each action is a choice. Each choice has a consequence. And... *Selfish is not a 4-Letter Word* Which is a chapter in @115746772512798725578's Book _How I Quit Email and Followed My Dreams_. Full disclosure: even actively working on this, as I write it a story tries to pop up and divert my attention.

ARTISTS IN THE PLUS1,967,121+Artists In The Plus is proud to bring you a very special "Concerts In The Plus!' with Guitar Legend +Preston Reed. (Banner Photo By +Ralf Hebauf ) +Preston Reed has virtually reinvented how the acoustic guitar is played. Reed practices a flamboyant self-invented style, characterized by percussive techniques and simultaneous rhythm and melody lines that dance and ricochet around each other, giving his music a level of excitement that is unparalleled among today's guitarists. Playing an array of guitars from acoustic to electric to classical Reed's vast range of explosively original music will forever change your expectation of a guitarist. First-time listeners find it impossible to believe that they're hearing just the one musician, in real time. Reed attacks the entire instrument in a never-ending search for the orchestra he knows is lurking inside. At full tilt, his fingers, thumbs, fists and hands at once suggest a drummer, keyboardist, bassist and several guitarists at work. The most impressive thing about Reed's technique, though, is that it doesn't draw attention to itself. His compositions are far from abstract virtuosic displays; even without lyrics he creates vivid, engrossing scenes. Sometimes the effect is almost onomatopoetic. Reed generates visual stimuli with every tweak of his instrument, thus augmenting his wordless compositions with an aura of the poetic. Each tune is a story in itself with a potent, cinematic atmosphere and an almost tangible thread of communication between Preston Reed and the listener. Reed's entry into this guitar odyssey was inauspicious enough, his path thereafter largely self-discovered. A few chords learned from his guitar playing father, a brief, very brief, flirtation with the ukulele, clandestine practice sessions of his favourite Beatles and Stones songs on dad's guitar .... and then a too-strict classical guitar teacher led to premature retirement. At 16, however, Reed heard Jefferson Airplane's rootsy blues offshoot, Hot Tuna. His interest was rekindled big time. Acoustic guitar heroes John Fahey and Leo Kottke were studied, their styles absorbed but not imitated, and at this point things really begin to get interesting because, at 17, Reed, by now precociously proficient, played his first live gig, supporting beat poet Allen Ginsberg at the Smithsonian Institute. Just getting on a train from his native Armonk in New York State to Washington was a cool adventure. And it was just the first of many, not least of which was the one which resulted from his signing his first deal with a major record company, MCA, through the auspices of his friend, country singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett. Determined to make the most of this opportunity, Reed pushed himself to go beyond the standard fingerpicking styles he'd perfected. The result was the beginnings of Reeds startlingly innovative style, with its percussive, two-handed fretboard attack, that you hear today and which has caused guitar luminaries such "Concerts In The Plus!"

Jessica Northey1,824,080Join @115263347034954886450  Wednesday October 24th starting 5pm PT! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=eDGGFu-Ok9w We'll be talking about Americana and folk music with @115355394914388821672, @101855386466968203040, @102002299339025067376, @107291158434082397409 as well as @111956683258824284439  We'll talk about what Americana music is and some performances showing difference styles! A few weeks ago, I wrote about the never-ending debate about the definition of Country Music. As tough as that is, it’s nothing compared to how one defines the term “Americana.”  In writing about this topic, I’m going to be (gasp!) honest about my thoughts – as they were when you first started hearing the term to describe a musical genre. There were several artists who had been favorites of the Country genre who no longer found themselves played on mainstream radio. Rodney Crowell and Emmylou Harris were two examples of this. Crowell had a string of top tens from 1988-1992, but all of a sudden his name disappeared from radio playlists. The same happened to Emmylou Harris following her 1988 top ten “Heartbreak Hill.” Critics of the musical format said it was that Country Music had changed – and gotten more pop and rock influenced. That is true – but, only halfway. If you listen to some of Harris’s post 1992 work, as well as Crowell’s, you’ll find some different sounds and subject matter that they weren’t doing earlier. That’s not saying they weren’t doing great music – but it WAS different than their own music that was played on top-40 Country radio just a few years earlier. So, (at least in my mind), that’s how the Americana format was born– as a place for acts who weren’t getting the commercial reception that they once had. Ok, I know I just offended several of my friends with that – but that’s my opinion. I never said that the music was bad, just different. Twenty years later, the definition of Americana is not that simple in my mind. One of the best albums of late in the format is Radney Foster’s current album, DEL RIO, TEXAS REVISITED: UNPLUGGED AND LONESOME , is a stunning re-take on his classic 1992 album DEL RIO, TEXAS 1959. The songs are the same that were radio hits back in the early 1990s. They were Country then, what changed? When artists like Patty Loveless release new projects, they get a warmer reception in the Americana format than Country – and this is by an artist that is a former CMA Female Vocalist of the Year. Granted, she wasn’t cutting Bluegrass music back in 1988 as her last album was, but the voice is still as pure and stunning as ever. But, Americana reaches far beyond the Country format. There’s tinges of Blues, Rock, Gospel, and Bluegrass that are sprinkled throughout. So, is Americana “anything outside of the mainstream?” I don’t know. The Civil Wars, a critical favorite, recently collaborated with Taylor Swift on “Safe and Sound.” What do you call that?  Part of my continuing education concerning “Americana” Americana & Folk Music Twangout with Twang Nation's Baron Lane, Joe Whyte, Heather Fay and Ryan Van Sickle.2012-10-25 02:00:0046

Yifat Cohen77,658*How the social revolution is changing the way we do business.* We all keep hearing about how important it is to engage and build relationships - what does it really mean, and what tools are out there to help us master it? When @105103058358743760661 spoke at DreamForce he saw *a vision for a future of business information systems that is entirely based on relationships.* *ENGAGE OR DIE.* In this Hangout On Air, we'll dive into the topic of engagement with @105103058358743760661   as he explains what he calls "engagement leverage." This framework bridges the kind of internal engagement you need with employees with the external engagement you need with customers, suppliers, partners and other external stakeholders. It's a simple, yet surprisingly powerful way for thinking about the way your organization gets work done.  Gideon writes at Alchemy of Change about helping companies bring purpose and technology together into a more powerful source of competitive advantage. Gideon just came back from leading a panel on engagement at Salesforce's Dreamforce Conference (now the biggest tech conference in the world) and so in addition to talking with us about the engagement leverage model, he'll also share some of what he saw at Dreamforce.

Trever McGhee93,844Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00203

Four ... wow, I forgot how long it's been.
Thanks +Yonatan Zunger 

I just thought I would mark today with a post I made four years ago, welcoming everyone on board just a few minutes after we flipped the switch and launched Google+. 

Over the course of the week that followed, I decided to try something a bit crazy and not really "traditional Google:" I spent lots of time running around the service, talking to everyone I encountered, and welcoming them aboard. What I found was that there were tremendous numbers of people out there who wanted to talk: not just about the service, but about all the things they cared about in their lives, from their pets to geopolitics. And the results changed my life.

It's been an amazing four years here: I've seen the project grow from a crazy idea to a giant, thriving community, spread around the world.  I've had so many conversations on so many subjects, and learned so much in the process, that I can't even count. I've learned to write much more effectively, and what it is to have a real conversation about incredibly sensitive subjects where people nonetheless treat each other with respect and seriousness. I've made an amazing group of friends here, people I love and trust and talk to every day. And I even met the love of my life, my brilliant and beloved wife, through the service.

So looking back on four years of what we've built here, I can say: this is going really well. I'm exceptionally glad to have met all of you, and to have had some part in building this community we share, and I'm looking forward to seeing where the next four years take us!___Four ... wow, I forgot how long it's been.

Change
Any networked human has noticed this today. June 26th, 2015. No need to elaborate on the event. The topic I share today is about change and it's palpable promotion and resistance. Celebration and angst collide as positions are taken and vehemently defended. It doesn't matter who is right, or who is wrong. Change ignores all of that. It arrives without invitation and never leaves. It comes and we must deal with it.

Let's explore the nature of this matter. Resistance is human behavior. Pushback is not good or bad in itself. It's simply nature at work, preserving inertia. As force (or energy, if you will) must be applied to move any object, we must initially oppose every bit of change that comes our way. It's our nature and we can't change that. Or can we?

Celebration and angst collide as positions are taken and vehemently defended. It doesn't matter who is right, or who is wrong. Change ignores all of that. It arrives without invitation and never leaves. It comes and we must deal with it.

Let's explore the nature of this matter. Resistance is human behavior. Pushback is not good or bad in itself. It's simply nature at work, preserving inertia. As force (or energy, if you will) must be applied to move any object, we must initially oppose every bit of change that comes our way. It's our nature and we can't change that. Or can we?

There are three steps to help us move along with the flow that stops for no one. The first is to start with ourselves and change our own intention. Once we are ready for change, we can be useful to others.

Step two is to give the other person some room. Once we have visited an unpopulated area, be it desert, an island, a precipice with a view, or simply alone in a room, we learn that space is necessary for adjustment and healing. Back off a bit and let the other person take it in. You might simplify the story and be open for ideas not your own.

Step three is to give the gift of time. As they say, "time heals all wounds."  It also is the furnace that purifies and distills. When steps two and three combine, they offer the other person a period of quiet to consider the balance of the change they must recognize inevitably.

The work doesn't end here. As the guide of this passage through change, model patience and acceptance. This might seem sufficient, but a few other ingredients will bring all of you successfully through the change you naturally resist. These are to have a clear vision and a determination to see that dream realized. And that will require change.___

Serious science .

The more deeper we look into space, the more ancient the clues about our history are found.

Centaurs A

Centaurus A or NGC 5128 is a prominent galaxy in the constellation of Centaurus. It was discovered in 1826 by Scottish astronomer James Dunlop at his home in New South Wales, Australia. It  is one of the closest radio galaxies to Earth. NGC 5128 is either a Hubble type lenticular galaxy or a elliptical galaxy. It is 10–16 million light-years away. The galaxy is the fifth brightest in the sky, and is an ideal amateur astronomy target. The galaxy is only visible from low northern latitudes and the southern hemisphere.The center of the galaxy has a supermassive black hole. Its mass is about 55 million solar masses. This ejects a relativistic jet with emissions in the X-ray and radio wavelengths. Astronomers have taken radio observations of the jet ten years apart. They found that the inner parts of the jet are moving at about half the speed of light.

The world's best waterproof temperature sensor and logger

Blue Maestro is proud to release what is undeniably the world’s best waterproof temperature sensor and data logger, Tempo Disc IP67™.  As you probably gathered, the “IP67″ part of the name denotes the waterproof rating of the sensor.

Tempo Disc is not much bigger that a U.S. quarter dollar in diameter but packs a great deal of technology into its small form.

Lively discussion on the original post

The Shape of the Universe that Sends Chills Down your Spine

    According to Einstein’s theory of relativity, gravity and energy effect the shape of space.

    You can imagine this by looking at gravity not as a ‘force’ but as a downwards indentation in space. If you take a towel and have it pulled flat then drop a bowling ball in the middle, the area around the bowling ball will have been pressed down. The Moon orbiting Earth is just following a straight trajectory around this downward curvature of space.

    Energy does the opposite of gravity. It makes a positive curvature.

    When you look at the big picture, you’ve got a universe whose overall shape is dictated by whether or not it’s got an overall positive, negative or zero amount of energy.

    We know, thanks to measuring the gravity of regular matter, dark matter and the strange anti-gravitational force called ‘dark energy’, that we can make an equation with energy on one side and gravity on the other.

    This equation will tell us the shape of the universe.

    A negative answer means our universe is shaped like a saddle. A positive one means our universe is shaped like a globe (closed). An answer of zero means the universe has flat geometry.

    Want the mysterious part?

    Scientists have found that the universe is somehow, shockingly perfectly tuned. The measured amount of dark energy combined with the average density of matter is approximately zero. Our universe is flat.

    With a flat universe, a universe with a net total of zero energy, we have a case of an entire universe being created out of nothing.

    Somehow the matter and gravitational energies that otherwise cancelled each other out in a state of 'zero-ness’ were separated. Our universe may have in fact been created out of nothing.

    It gets more odd. If you were to add (which we can’t) a single gram of matter (just one gram) it totally changes the entire shape of the universe. Our universe would be a closed one that would end in a 'Big Crunch’ where all things collapse and fall into a singularity: a perfect opposite of the Big Bang.

    Scientists don’t like it when things seem to be fine tuned. It usually means we’re missing something. This means that our universe is many times more incredible and mysterious than you may have ever imagined before…

Ahhhh ...

The delayed sunrise
To the end of my Gantrisch excursion, the sunrise.
With a bit of delay, because of the big, fat cloud at the horizon, I could see the sun rising in the sky. Although I missed the red light, was the waiting time not for nothing, in my opinion.
You can see the Emmental and while I am allready enjoy the warming sunlight, the valleys were still lying in the shadow of the big, fat cloud. But I think at this time on a sunday morning, the most people are anyway still lying in their beds.
And after I was back at home and the other peoples are crawling out of their beds, I took a nap under my blanket.

Enjoy ... the wonder.

This ground-based image was taken by astrophotographer Robert Gendler and shows the two merging Antennae Galaxies located in the constellation Corvus, NGC 4038 and NGC 4039 and their impressive long tidal tails. About 1.2 billion years ago, the Antennae were two separate galaxies. NGC 4038 was a barred spiral galaxy and NGC 4039 was a spiral galaxy. 600 million years ago, the Antennae passed through each other and 300 million years ago, the Antennae's stars began to be released from both galaxies. Today the two streamers of ejected stars extend far beyond the original galaxies, resulting in the antennae shape. 

New research on the Antennae Galaxies using the Advanced Camera for Surveys onboard the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows that the pair of interacting galaxies are in fact much closer than previously thought - 45 million light-years instead of 65 million light-years, making them among the closest known merging galaxies.___Enjoy ... the wonder.

There is something to be said for a beautiful self-confidence in a woman to the point where she is comfortable in her own skin. This was an abstract on paper that I had painted two years ago with a great connection to the earth, nature, and the flow of of all living things.
 
Today, I transformed it into a vision of a confident woman who is connected to the flow of energy that is beautiful, transformative, and a reflection of how she loves. She was a supreme joy to paint.
