Paige Keaton57,548In memory of +Dirk Talamasca I am sharing a circle of friends from G+ I have shoved into a circle named. People Worth Keeping. As he was really into getting people connected. This circle is 700 people deep and it only shares 500. I need to split this in 2 and share all of you lovelies.. Dirk was a bad ass. He was what G+ was all about. Enjoyed many hours online during Beta with him. Really sucks when people die on here.   #RIPDIRKTALAMASCA   #shareyourpeople  2014-03-31 01:45:085017238CC G+

Vũ Phá1,285 STOP!! Before you share this circle please read everything detailed below:This is the newest release of my #topengagers  circle.  This week I wanted to give this circle a SERIOUS overhaul. So I deleted it. Then, I started with the adding back the core G+'ers of this circle (if you don't know who they are start engaging more!!) and I then added in those who shared the circle previously and whose posts were high quality.  I am sure some have slipped through the cracks, so if that is you please do not be offended, but be certain to get in touch with me. This circle is the result of the overhaul.  Add this circle only if you are interested in great content, great engagers and helping make G+ a better, more social place.  To Be Included Next Time1. Make sure your posts are quality2. Be a great G+ member3.

Here's a vintage KPCC pic circa 1982. Our Technology and Operations Director, Doug Johnson, has spent many hours in that chair mixing programs on the air. He says: "It's a picture of studio C referred to as Master Control. It was on the first floor of building C at Pasadena City College. There's an Avid video lab there now."

The British artist Banksy has made a name for himself as a graffiti artist who's stealthily created provocative pieces around the world.

Now the L.A.-based auction house Julien's has announced that it's auctioning off one of his works — a piece called "Flower Girl" — which once graced the wall of a gas station on the corner of Beverly Boulevard and La Brea. Julien's estimates the piece will bring in a whole lot of cash. http://kp.cc/1a8SRnU

In a new study by researcher Dr. Hannes Schwandt, life satisfaction peaks at the average ages of 23 and 69. People become discontent mid-life because of disappointments at unfulfilled expectations. Often, young people are over-optimistic about their lives and become frustrated when reality proves to be less than ideal. However, when people get past these regrets and have lower expectations, people become more satisfied with their lives. http://kp.cc/1cky2oR

In a 20,000 square foot shop and warehouse in North Hollywood, Chris Gilman and his team at Global Effects make just about any costume or prop you could imagine.

Gilman's warehouse at times feels like a history book and a fantasy movie at the same time. Down one aisle, you'll find a replica of the inside of a lunar module, down another, one of the martians from "Mars Attacks." http://kp.cc/1aAu90z

The natural processes that bring sand to most beaches in Southern California have been disrupted by development and other human activities.  

"Beach nourishment" projects are replacing some of that sand, primarily on beaches in L.A. County. But the efforts are replacing only about half of what is lost each year. http://kp.cc/12Zbiqc

To become a U.S. citizen, all immigrants must pass a naturalization test.

But native-born residents do not need to pass the test. Which led us to wonder: How many existing citizens would pass the test if they had to? (It takes five years from the time an immigrant receives a green card — i.e. becomes a permanent legal resident — until he or she may apply to become a naturalized citizen.)

We've created a quiz, below, with sample questions of the type that appear on the actual naturalization test. Try it out and see if you'd pass. Let us know in the comments and be honest! #projectcitizen http://kp.cc/17TYA0T

The lead plaintiffs in the U.S. Supreme Court case that overturned California's same-sex marriage ban tied the knot at San Francisco City Hall on Friday, about an hour after a federal appeals court freed same-sex couples to obtain marriage licenses for the first time in 4 1/2 years. http://kp.cc/17IH7bn

When a bridge fell in Washington last month it rekindled questions about the state of our nation's infrastructure.

That span over the Skagit river had been rated both "functionally obsolete" and "fracture critical" prior to collapse. Right now in California there are more than 600 bridges labeled either functionally obsolete, fracture critical or "structurally deficient." http://kp.cc/12ggTnm

News broke yesterday that James Gandolfini, who played Tony Soprano on the long-running HBO smash hit “The Sopranos,” died Wednesday in an emergency room in Rome, where he was vacationing.

Gandolfini joined us in the AirTalk studios on May 13, 2011, while he was in Los Angeles acting in “God of Carnage” at the Ahmanson Theater. Ten minutes into the interview, Larry turned the conversation to the character of Tony Soprano and what the character means to him now, four years after the show’s final episode, and Gandolfini’s answer reflected the complexity of his own character. http://kp.cc/105kCI4

When you hear the word Soylent, what image pops into your head? A dystopian future where people are recycled into tasty little green treats, perhaps?

For the past few months, talk about a product called Soylent has been making the rounds on the Internet. It's billed as an all-in one nutritional drink that has all of the nutrients that your body needs. http://kp.cc/16FW3Db

"Unfortunately, the opposition was crafty enough to make sure that cameras were not allowed in the courtroom," Black says. "What they couldn't do was destroy the transcripts, and what they couldn't do was to keep me from using those transcripts to let the world know what happened in that courtroom." http://kp.cc/13HEFLy

+Sony  officially launched the #Playstation 4 on Monday, and they’re coming after Microsoft’s #Xbox One — hard.

For starters, the new PlayStation 4 costs $399, putting the PS4’s price point $100 under that of the Xbox One at $499. However, what may be most notable is all of the things Sony was quick to point out the PlayStation doesn’t do.

You can see some of that in the ad below: http://kp.cc/11x1O1N

During the transition, Mayor elect  Eric Garcetti says he's been out meeting with Angelenos.  The answers to the city's problems, he believes, won't come from experts at City Hall, but from people who live and work in the city.  "They have the answers," he says. http://kp.cc/19i2i3D

The Chicago Sun Times laid off its entire photography staff last week, leaving nearly 30 people out of a job. These included Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, many of them had been at the paper for years.

One of those people was photojournalist Rob Hart. He may no longer have a job with the paper, but that hasn't stopped him from taking photos. The second Rob left his job he began a new photo project, a Tumblr called Laid Off From the Sun-Times. http://kp.cc/16HLinx

Facebook loves to boast about how it has 1.11 billion monthly active users, but notice that they don't specify just how many of those users are human. 

An estimated 100 million Facebook profiles are those belonging to brands, products and perhaps most beloved of all, people's pets. Social media has turned pets, especially cats, into some of the biggest sensations online. 

One popular Internet cat personality is Colonel Meow, who currently boasts more than 166,000 Facebook fans and counting. He and his owner Anne Marie Avey live right here in Southern California.   http://kp.cc/10WeZZK

Are you sitting down? Well you might want to stand up for this story. 

The evolution of modern-day office desk set-ups looks a little something like this: First came the ergonomic desk chair, then the giant inflatable ball chair and the stand-up desk.

Now, believe it or not, some people are upping the healthy-while-working design by walking while they work at treadmill desks. Sounds like a recipe for spilled coffee, but the idea has been taking off in offices across the US. http://kp.cc/14v97dL
