I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmFabulous Women on G+ Part 2 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/DRFwReXQvbFFabulous Women on G+ Part 3 Can be found here:https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/7wiyEUFuKsHWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+If You Received Notification About this Circle--------------------------------------------------------------------If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified me or others in the circle as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9tI thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless it is 100% warranted. G+ Quirky Things to Note----------------------------------------* Google+ has a daily limit of 500 for adding people to your circles. If you haven't added 50 people or more today, you should be fine to add one of the circles daily.2013-06-09 22:47:5043928621

Brad Leclerc28,193I haven't shared a circle in a while, and since I seem to have a flood of new circlers lately, I figure now might be a good time to get back into the habit. Starting with this circle of 150~ awesome people, which I have named my "Inner Sanctum".They post on a wide range of topics, from gaming, to science, to writing, to politics (across the spectrum, so you might not agree with everything they all say), to movies, to saucy photos, and everything in between. There are even a few slightly more well known and/or celebrity types in here, though they're all fairly active about posting, and interacting in general).They all really have only one thing in common: they make my G+ stream epic.You really can't go wrong with this circle. Trust me on that.2013-05-09 05:33:39151629

It's Not About the Shirt

An anonymous female scientist tells why #ShirtStorm   isn't about the shirt. It's about everyday sexism. And she also explains why she posted her comment anonymously. 

This is, ladies and gentlemen, is why we need #feminism  .

If you don't understand why you don't see sexism in tech, yet all the women keep complaining about it, this might be a good read.

Actually, it's a good read no matter what. Give it a read.

Once more, cracked.com knocks it out of the park. They write really amazing articles on a lot of things.

If you've ever wondered why people are "SJWs", and why people who care about social justice are always picking on white, hetero males even though quite a few of them don't have easy lives either, this would be a good article to read.

Helping to rectify that situation is one of the many, many things you're tasked with due to having been born in a fairly high place in the world. It's not "fair," but that's a meaningless word when referencing things you have no control over. You didn't ask to be born half-way up a mountain, but you were, and I need you to look down and realize that mountain is really a pile of bones.

There's really nothing to be added to this. We continue to live in a nation that profits off slavery, we just gave it a slightly different window dressing.

I am a citizen of a nation in which slavery is legal. 

That’s a very hard thing for me to say, and a harder thing still to hear. Hard for me to say, because I have lived my life fighting for the idea that all citizens of our country are equal. Of course, I’ve always had the privilege of having white skin to hide me from the truth. Harder still to hear, because in a nation where slavery is accepted, no one is ever truly a free citizen. 

But I can’t hide from the truth anymore. Even the UN Report on Human Rights in the United States pulled no punches when released last week. 

http://www.upr-info.org/sites/default/files/document/united_states/session_22_-_may_2015/a_hrc_wg.6_22_l.10.pdf

I’m a lifelong, passionate student of history, and dreamer of the future. The song Imagine was released just before my birth. Born to an anti-Vietnam War hippie mom, who surely sang along to me in my crib the words of her favorite musician. I grew up listening to stories of those who had fought long and hard for equality. I read everything I could get my hands on about the struggles of this country to truly represent the freedom and rights enshrined in our laws. 

Slavery was stricken as constitutionally legal with the 13th Amendment. Yet the text itself left former slave owners with everything they needed to ensure they could continue prospering under the enforced labor of others. 

Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

The system continued with Jim Crow laws. The “former” slaves were kept indebted to the land in the form of sharecropping. Requiring them to only get goods and seeds from the store associated with the landowner, and pay it off at the end of each growing season kept them too poor to leave. And if they did think about leaving, that’s when the laws against certain jobs, living in certain areas, shopping in certain places all applied. It was oh so easy to keep slavery going, because they had the force of law. A black man unknowingly breaking a Jim Crow law would find himself either lynched or imprisoned for a very long term. Almost certainly to work on a chain gang. 

And those prison jobs have always benefited the small local county sheriffs and police. They used the prisoners to staff their homes, care for their yards, and do labor for associates. While any profits were immediately pocketed by the police or sheriff. 

When Jim Crow officially ended, it was still decades before many could vote, or take any rights of citizens. 

But that pesky line in the 13th Amendment stayed there. 

The same sheriffs and police that fought to keep Jim Crow alive and well never left their cash cow behind. They stayed in office, and simply continued their normal practices. 

As a result, we now have a country that imprisons a far greater percent of our population than any other. That uses terms like “stop and frisk” as an acceptable practice to continue the enslavement and unfair imprisonment. 

You might say “Oh, what’s the harm in checking someone to see if they’re breaking the law?”. 

The harm comes in the violation of their 4th Amendment rights against illegal search and seizure. And in the overwhelmingly hard-handed use of these tactics against people of color. Even in “liberal” areas like the Bay Area.

http://www.mercurynews.com/crime-courts/ci_28084891/sjpd-data-show-san-jose-cops-detained-greater

A young white man is just as likely to be carrying marijuana as a young black man. Yet that young black man is many more times likely to be arrested for it. 

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/06/04/the-blackwhite-marijuana-arrest-gap-in-nine-charts/

We’ve grown our prisons for many reasons. For profit prisons are thriving, and have created a huge lobby. That lobby does much to push for “mandatory sentencing”, to ensure that minor crimes or even victimless crimes are punished far longer--so there is more profit per prisoner to be had. 

http://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2015/04/28/how-for-profit-prisons-have-become-the-biggest-lobby-no-one-is-talking-about/

Private prisons especially, but also many publicly run ones are continuing to be heavily used for their free/cheap labor. Your business have call center needs you don’t want to pay much for, or outsource overseas? Here’s the place for you! They even take the time to point out to racists that these prisoners speak English!! And their services include a great note Furthermore our agent turnover rate is less than half of the industry norm and the absenteeism rate is practically zero. Because there’s no such thing as a sick day or personal day in prison, and the average prison term is longer than most people can tolerate working in a call center environment outside the prison industry. 
http://www.convictionleads.com/services/

The Sheriff’s Union and Police Unions continue to rake in their profits, and have absolutely no incentive to hand over power. And since prosecutors depend on police cooperation to do their jobs, the police don’t get prosecuted for breaking the laws and violating civil rights of citizens. When citizens do try and speak up about the injustice, its easy to shut them down when you control all the power. 

http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2015/05/06/3654931/sheriffs-threaten-cut-off-prisoner-phone-calls-cant-get-kickbacks

Slavery is, and always has been, a monetary system. There’s huge profit in enforced labor. Black lives in this country have only mattered as far as the monetary gain that can be stolen from their labor. 

And the answer to young black men and others of color is still the same as what it was for Jim in To Kill a Mockingbird. If you refuse to be stopped and imprisoned, if you refuse to be held any longer for crimes you haven’t committed, but merely for the color of your skin, that’s an immediate death penalty offense. 

Slavery or death. That’s the inevitable choice of people of color in the US. ___There's really nothing to be added to this. We continue to live in a nation that profits off slavery, we just gave it a slightly different window dressing.

Given that they're already a complete disaster, at least the inevitable failure to do this smoothly won't mean customer service getting even worse. (It's hard to imagine worse service anyways.)

I am continually stunned by the amount of idiocy out there. And sickened, once it comes to the quotes in the second part of the article.

I wasn't going to see it - it looks to me like a rather forgettable movie - but if it pisses of MRAs, I suppose I'll have to. SJW FTW :)

Yes, we disarmed a nuclear strike - with almost a full minute to spare. (Eat your heart out, James!)

Since we all know that you don't give Rachel the launch codes to anything since that kitchen mishap in '97, let me explain: It was a "locked room" adventure with the fabulous folk at RoomEscapeLA.

In case you don't know what that is, it's pretty much what it sounds like: you get locked in a room with a bunch of clues, a counter is running down, and you'd better get out before it's at zero. It is a boatload of fun. (And they do let you out even if you don't solve the puzzle. Or at least they promised to)

I'm possibly hooked.

New setting to save power by pausing plugin content

With today's Beta release of Chrome 42, we've launched a new setting that automatically pauses plugin content that's peripheral to the main page. This can help you save precious battery power and CPU cycles. But don't worry, the primary plugin content on pages (games, videos, etc.) should still run just fine.

Give the new setting a try in chrome://settings/content, and let us know what you think!___And the Los Angeles Chrome team strikes again :)

And another feature brought to you by my team mates. I'm incredibly proud to work with those guys!

I'd love to claim the weather part was inspired by L.A. Story, but it's actually making use of the hard work of a lot of folks who work on the search side of things.

So, no, it won't always say "sunny & 72" for L.A. :) And it will answer a lot more questions than that. 

How could you make Chrome omnibox more powerful? One way the chromium team is experimenting with is Answers in Suggest. By enabling the eponymous flag at chrome://flags/#answers-in-suggest, responses to certain types of queries will appear directly in the Omnibox suggestion list.

Try it out with a weather query for instance in Chrome Canary and notice the inline picture weather in the results. You can also play with "1+1", "what is the answer to life the universe and everything", "1ml in oz", etc.

Wonderfully said, +Paul Cowan​.

Every day, we read about another woman who has thrown in the towel. A woman who's left her team, or her company, or her industry, fed up with the constant exhaustion of having to continually deal with sexism in the technology industry. And there are doubtlessly many many more who leave silently, without a high-profile exit. How many women (or trans* people, or minority ethnicities, or...) leaving the industry—or worse, never entering it—over this shit are we prepared to tolerate? Even if they don't leave, how many lives are willing to make miserable? How many careers are we willing to stunt through fear, anger, and distress?

I want to make one thing perfectly clear, especially to my fellow white straight cis-males: I'm not OK with this. Not by a very long way. As a manager, I want to make it quite clear that any team under my management will have zero tolerance for sexism, racism and transphobia, in whatever form they come. If I see it, I will call it out. If you want to do it, move elsewhere (ideally out of my company, or even better out of CS altogether). This applies as well for teams, groups, or conferences I participate in, but don't manage: if I see it, I will say it. If it continues, I am done with you and I will do everything in my power to never have to work with you again, at my current or any future company.

I beg all of you to watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaqpoeVgr8U, a video made in the face of (yet another) sexual misbehaviour scandal in the Australian army. It is by far one of the most powerful anti-sexism messages ever spoken. I literally have a calendar reminder set to watch this every few months, because it is so powerful and resonates with me so strongly. It's a refreshing reminder of what a powerful anti-sexism message can look like.

Watch it, and if you take nothing else away from David Morrison's speech, take away this: "The standard you walk past is the standard you accept". It doesn't matter if you're not doing it (making the jokes, performing the microaggressions, belittling the contributions); it matters that you allow it to happen. By allowing it to happen, without stepping in, you are giving it your implicit approval, and letting it take root and grow. The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.

For the managers reading this, remember his followup: "That goes for all of us, but especially those who, by their rank, have a leadership role". As managers, some of us have a unique ability and responsibility. Do not let this fester in your team. If it festers in your team, it spreads, and the whole of your team, your company, and your industry all become lesser places for it.

Don't be silent. We, as individuals and as an industry, need to root this rot out and destroy it. It will take all of us, and I promise to do what I can.

Indeed. It's a piece of crappy fanfic that glorifies abuse. It has nothing to do with romance, kink, or Valentines Day.

Let's get this off my chest...
Fifty Shades is the worst thing to happen to BDSM EVER...
Simple as that.
A bully abuses a girl using his position of power over her.
EL James wouldn't know a D/s relationship if she was in one.
As an English teacher I can judge and say she writes like a 14 year old.
As the holder of a psychology degree I can tell you Mr Grey is an example of an evil human being.
As a Mistress to a submissive pet (not SuperGirl) I am furious that a Dominate/sub relationship be portrayed as she has done.
And to release it on valentines day...
Fuck off..

If YOU think it kinky romance then for fucks sake read this post in full.
If you still don't understand then please disappear from my life because you're clearly stupid.
Yes, I'm usually quite tolerant to views differing from mine, but not on this one. If you think this monstrosity is harmless fun then you are an idiot.

Let me break it down for those who don't understand.
Here's fifty things wrong with it.

1. Ignoring consent, he does it. You never do that. Never.
2. Reacting to the sentiment “no, I don’t want to have sex with you right now” by threatening to tie the speaker up, taking their clothes off, and… having sex with them. That's rape.
3. Not treating safewords as important.
4. Not treating contracts as important.
5. Joking about the importance of safewords and contracts in a D/s relationship.
6. Having a partner sign a D/s contract without telling them it isn’t legally binding.
7. Not exploring and explaining limits
8. Forcibly preventing a partner from learning about their limits. He doesn't give a shit about her.
9. Forcibly preventing a partner from learning about a sexual practice you are encouraging them to engage in.
10. Making a romantic relationship dependent on indulging non-mutual kinks
11. Taking sexual advantage of someone who is intoxicated
12. Refusing to allow a partner to masturbate
13. Pushing someone who has never experienced any sexual interest, including maturbation, into a sexual relationship immediately after meeting them
14. Pushing someone who has never experienced any sexual interest, including masturbation, into a kinky sexual relationship immediately after meeting them despite the fact that they have no knowledge about kink
15. Refusing to allow that partner any trustworthy source of knowledge about those kinks other than yourself
16. Forcing a partner to make specific decisions about birth control based on your preferences
17. Reading a partner’s email and phone messages without their knowledge or consent
18. Physically hurting a partner without their informed consent
19. Physically hurting a partner even though it causes them fear
20. Controlling who a partner can and cannot spend time with outside of the relationship
21. Showing up at someone’s house after they’ve literally just emailed you to say they don’t want to see you anymore
22. Routinely forcing a partner to eat when they don’t want to.
23. The perpetuation of the idea that a woman has no libido or sexual desire of her own until it is “awoken” by a desirable man
24. The man as aggressor and the woman as, essentially, prey
25. Refusal to utter the word “vagina,” instead referring to female genitalia as “down there,” despite the fact that male genitals are described frequently and in often-bizarrely-metaphorical detail
26. A female character who is just so skinny and naturally feminine that she forgets to eat all the time! That’s… that’s not what people do. If you regularly forget to eat, you might have an eating disorder. And you definitely need to get that looked into.
27. The good-girl cures bad-boy trope
28. Stating marriage, babies, heteronormative normalcy as the ultimate goal for a young woman and lots and lots of kinky sex with multiple partners as the ultiamte goal for a young man
29. Racial stereotyping of a young man of color (the only vaguely significant character of color) as a scary probable rapist who nice white girls must be protected from, despite the fact that his behavior (which I am totally not condoning) is much less sexually predatory than that of the white male love interest
30. Complete erasure of queer people of all types
31. Typing- that is, the idea that a man only likes women of one physical “type,” and thus that his only possible interest in these women is their physical appearance, not their personalities or anything else
32. Excusing the rape of a young boy by a woman. The one good thing the female main character does in the series is condemn the woman who raped her partner when he was 14 and question his continuing relationship with her. However, he completely laughs off her objections and the overall plot of the books somewhat normalizes his sexual abuse.
33. Presenting the only dominant female character as a rapist
34. Treating female sexual pleasure and orgasm as something bizarre
35. Treating female sexual pleasure and orgasm as something belonging exclusively to a male partner, to bestow or not as he chooses
36. Presenting a character who has never felt sexual attraction to anyone, ever, and has never masturbated, as obviously heterosexual and ignoring the asexual spectrum completely
37. Consistent devaluing of female friendships
38. Painting the normal state of relationships as a dominant man and a submissive woman
39. Treating a partner’s kinks as something unpleasant to be barely tolerated
40. Someone seeking out a partner they know will barely tolerate their kinks because of internalized kink-shaming
41. Creating the sense that a character’s kinks must stem from some “reason” and thus the idea that kinks cannot be natural
42. Associating kinks with extreme trauma from early childhood
43. Treating a kink as something very embarassing, to be kept secret under threat of legal action
44. The phrase “laters, baby,” which is just obnoxious. And the whole “inner goddess” thing, which deserves a special nod for its sheer terribleness
45. Generally terrible writing.
46. Lack of aftercare. The whole second book’s plot could have been avoided if Christian weren’t genuinely a terrible Dom.
47. This one part where a female character puts her hair in pigtails to make herself look like a child to protect herself from the sexual aggression of her partner. And then he totally gets that that’s why she’s doing it, and says something along the lines of “that won’t protect you.” I actually cannot.
48. Plagiarism. Since when is it totes okay to make money off someone else’s copyrighted idea?
49. Coopting fanfiction and fanworks, by and large a feminist, queer-positive practice, to make money off an unfeminist, queer-erasing work
50. People are entering into D/s relationship based off the precepts the learned in this book, which is dangerous and frightening.

Thanks for getting this far.
It's that last one that really scares me. I've met girls who have been abused in such relationships, and this film I fear will encourage more. 

Edit - Sunstone http://shiniez.deviantart.com
The best illustration of a true D/s relationship based on love.

Before I vanish into my G+ sabbatical, let me mention a fantastic LA charity, Get Lit. I've had the privilege of attending this year's Gala event last weekend, and both what those teens had to say and how they said it blew me away.

I've rarely seen anybody so unafraid of exposing their emotions that much, of being so raw and vulnerable, and doing it so impactfully. All of the presentations were fantastic, but what - to me - stood out especially was a young man talking about his trans experience, and another young man talking about the dreams and hopes he shared with his best buddy  - whom he lost before they even finished highschool, to the horrible violence that many disadvantaged kids face, day-in and day-out.

If you think you should support a charity this year, you could do worse than supporting Get Lit.

If you still want to reach me, send me an e-mail. (If you don't have it, ask for it now, before I'm gone :)

This amuses me deeply. Plato saw the physical world as a poor copy of the perfect and eternal original thoughts the gods conceived.

And thus, any physical version of the platonic solid needs to be a poor decaying copy of the original. This, in turn,  is a poor (in faithfulness, not execution) copy of the best physical images of the original idea.

It's a philosophy lecture wrapped in knitting yarn. Possessing it will presumably give you a warm fuzzy feeling ;)

Crocheted Platonic solids by June Gilbank

This picture shows the five Platonic solids, as crocheted by June Gilbank, and featured on her website, http://www.planetjune.com. 

Platonic solids are convex polyhedra whose faces are regular polygons, with the same number of faces meeting at each vertex. The five Platonic solids in the picture are as follows.

Green: the tetrahedron, with 4 triangular faces.
Blue: the cube, with 6 square faces.
Magenta: the octahedron, with 8 triangular faces.
Brown: the dodecahedron, with 12 pentagonal faces.
Yellow: the icosahedron, with 20 triangular faces.

You can buy a detailed set of instructions to create these for yourself from the artist's web page at http://www.planetjune.com/blog/polyhedral-balls-crochet-pattern/, which is where this picture comes from.

Wikipedia has more on the Platonic solids here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platonic_solid

Here's a post by me about regular polytopes, which are the n-dimensional analogues of the Platonic solids: https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/HJxUtVJ16zn
