Social Sports and Entertainment Show #SSEshow707,285BioVernon Turner tried out for the National Football League in 1989; Played at the professional ranks for 8 years (+Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Rams, +Detroit Lions, +Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Frankfurt Galaxy (in Germany) and Scottish Claymores (in Scotland). During his stint at the pro level, he had the privilege in being a part of the 1990 Buffalo Bills +Super Bowl team. In 1994, he had the good fortune in being the first person ever to return a punt for a touch down while playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After retiring from pro football Vernon found himself in Mt. Vernon.  While there he directed and participated in an Adult Flag Football League (AFFL) becoming one of the largest adult programs in the Southern Illinois region. He is currently residing in Houston Texas and is traveling to do inspirational speaking for various programs, schools and businesses.  He also enjoys training athletes for their upcoming seasons (services posted on his website: www.vernonturner.com). He is currently working on launching my new sports apparel line (TruPlayer30) in 2013.Book Overview"THE NEXT LEVEL: A GAME I HAD TO PLAY" is an unbelievable story based on the memoirs of the same name by former NFL player, Vernon Turner. The true story traces a plot that could not possibly be invented, because of the inordinate amounts of horrific tragedy, severe obstacles, and later, incredible inspiration. Vernon is born into poverty and learns at an early age the root of his mother's spiral into drug-addicted prostitution: his own conception, which came at the hands of a brutal gang rape. Although possessed of a small frame, he discovers the game of football as a means of escape from his cruel surroundings. Along the way, the premature deaths of his beloved mother and stepfather provide immense challenges in terms of keeping his family together. Through intense workouts, the nurturing influence of a series of coaches and Administrators, and inspirational brushes with legends Bo Jackson and Walter Payton, Vernon transcends his diminutive size by developing truly blazing speed. At the pro level, he falls short of making the Denver Broncos team his rookie year, but he does capture the attention of the Buffalo Bills, thus landing a spot on their practice squad; and, while deactivated for the majority of the season, he still earns an AFC Championship ring in 1990.  His stint with the Detroit Lions was a constant battle in itself! Utterly discouraged by this turn of events, he finds himself being given an opportunity by a team desperate enough to trust talent regardless of its small package: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Turner's defining moment comes in Tampa Bay, when he returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown -- the first regular-season punt return for a TD in Buccaneer history. The electrifying play was made even sweeter because it came against a team thNFL Athlete Vernon Turner2013-02-14 03:00:0036

Social Sports and Entertainment Show #SSEshow707,285Join the Social Sports and Entertainment Show as we go live from the Sundance Film Festival and chat with Academy Award Nominees and Emmy Award winning directors Sean and Andrea Fine about their documentary on progeria "According to Sam" #sundancehangouts #oscar #academyawards #film #documentary  Life According to Sam - Life According to Sam is a documentary feature about one family’s courageous fight to save their only son from an extremely rare and fatal disease, progeria. The average age of death from progeria is 13, because there is no treatment and no cure. Dr. Leslie Gordon and Dr. Scott Berns are set on changing this. Their son, Sam Berns, is turning 16 this year. When Sam was diagnosed with progeria at age two, doctors told Leslie and Scott to simply enjoy Sam while they could. They refused to believe this was the answer. They spearheaded a campaign to not only save Sam, but the other children in the world who share his disease. In less than a decade, their extraordinary advances have led to identifying the gene at fault, creating the first drug trials in hopes of treatment, and revealing the amazing discovery that progeria is linked to the entire human aging process. Life According to Sam is an inspiring film about the power of family and how we make the most of our lives in the time we are given.Sean and Andrea Fine - Sean and Andrea Fine are Academy Award-nominated directors and three-time Emmy award winners. Sean is a director/cinematographer, and Andrea is a director/writer. For the last decade, they have been producing, directing and shooting documentaries for the finest outlets in television and film. They have worked in over thirty countries, from dangerous war zones to the Arctic Circle, to bring unknown human stories to the screen.A few of the awards that have honored the Fines’ unique style have been Sundance Film Festival’s Best Documentary Direction; National Emmy Award; Hot Docs Film Festival’s Audience Award; Chicago Film Festival’s Outstanding Cinematography; Full Frame Film Festival’s Audience Award; The Haskell Wexler Award for Cinematography; Philadelphia Film Festival’s Best Director; Best Non-Fiction Film in Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival.Website: http://fine-films.comFacebook: http://goo.gl/Vzbs3Twitter: http://goo.gl/Vzbs3Sundance Film Festival Hangout2013-01-25 02:00:0043

Samantha Villenave1,066,419+Art+Talk #16, an interview with +Kurt Ankeny, hosted by myself and +Lena Levin .I asked Kurt for a bio. What he gave me are these beautiful words."I like to describe myself as an autodidact, but that's not really true at all. If anything, I'm a bibliodidact. Some of the works most important to my formation were How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way by Stan Lee and John Buscema and Anatomy Lessons from the Great Masters by Robert Beverly Hale and Terence Coyle. Those two were my lifeline for many critical years of development. In fact, I had given away my copy of Anatomy Lessons,  when I started recognizing images from it in the paintings I was looking at. I hadn't realized how deeply those images penetrated. So I had to buy myself a replacement copy.Here's a problem I have: all writing about art tends to circumvent the art itself. I'm not saying one shouldn't write about art, but it's deceptive to cement into prose a reaction to a piece that depends wholly on the time, circumstances, education, experience, and readiness of the individual viewer looking at it and reacting or responding. So, what you have a is a snapshot of a very, very narrow point where two individuals connected for a moment in time.So those qualms aside, I'm a relatively new painter. I've only been painting for about seven years. Four of them what I would consider "full-time". Painting, as most of us who practice with any determination and ambition know, is a very slow burn. Cy Twombly told Jenny Saville to try and remain ignored for as long as possible. And that is good advice as long as one can manage it. Because painting, especially since the modernist movement, is a vast ocean of possibilities and it takes many canvases to get your bearings.I guess that's my long-winded way of saying that I really don't know what I'm doing yet. I know, I know. One isn't supposed to undercut one's brand and reputation with such nonsense and honesty. "I don't know what I'm doing" does not mean "I don't know where I'm going." I do have plans, I have grand ideas and ambitions. It's just that there's a lot of white space on the map between where I stand now and Mount Accomplishment. I think that the fissure between abstraction and figuration is an obvious point of interest. Today's painters are swarming on that likeArt+Talk interview with painter Kurt Ankeny2012-11-04 20:00:0023

Christopher Lira0*The Dates are the Art submission time frame for this event. I will be updating the start date everyday till we reach the ending date for submissions which will be oct. 1st* _9/27/12 edit:_ *The deadline is getting closer!! remember to email your submissions to both kaosq3k@gmail.com and manda.r.lira@gmail.com oct 1st is a few days away :)* Hi everyone many people have been asking me what this book is all about. Well this book is about Hope, it's about Love and It's about Strength, it's about saying "Life is beautiful, Cancer can suck it!"  8 months ago the love of my life Gladis was diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer. When we broke the news to our kids @112903919681703164454 decided to create this art book "Art For The Heart" and asked artists on deviantart and the artists here on Google+ if they would help her by submitting pieces for this book so she can give it to her mom as a gift of Hope Strength Courage and Love. So between school, cross country and everything else in a teenage girls life she began working on this book collecting submissions, arranging the pages, adding memorable quotes from her mom, inspirational quotes and memories of things she loves about her mom.  This past week Wednesday Sept 12th after all the treatments (Hysterectomy, Lymph nodes removal, Chemo, external and internal radiation) Gladis's latest scan results came back. The results weren't what we had prayed for. This horrible disease has now spread to her lungs and possibly to her brain. My Gladis now has stage 4 cancer. This link here is Gladis's journey on whatnext.com http://www.whatnext.com/users/lirasgirl33  So getting back to Manda's art book Art For The Heart While Manda was editing this book this past week she came to me and told me she ran out of pages for the price range she was working in. So I told her just bump it up to the next price range which in turn opened up the book for 20 more pages till it bumps up in price again. This is when Manda and I came to you all here on Google+ again.  Here's the link to that original post https://plus.google.com/104857406109954440836/posts/bR1p4edhtdr after posting this @109602109099036550366 suggested I post this as an event so I took his wonderful advice and now here were are.  Since the original post I have 7 submissions already in my email! Thank you all that have already submitted!! Hopefully we get all 20 pages filled! and if by some chance we go over the 20 pages I will buy more pages or rearrange to book somehow to make everyone get their page. All art is beautiful. all will be accepted. The goal of this book is to bring a smile to Gladis's face and give her Hope and strength throughout this horrible journey she is on.  deadline for submissions is oct.1st. all submission can be emailed to kaosq3k@gmail.com or manda.r.lira@gmail.com You may also post them here in this event page as well. I think I covered everything if you still have any questions or any ideas suggestions I am open to anything and everytArt For The Heart2012-10-01 09:00:0045 
Samantha Villenave1,066,419+Swarez Art will be joining me for Episode 10 of +Art+Talk  Hangouts on Air, and just to mix things up a bit, the lovely and talented +Abigail Markov will be cohosting the interview with me.Ed Swarez, is a self taught painter who began six years ago, by accident,  with a tiny canvas and a small paintbrush. Since that day he has gradually refined his skills and developed his materials to be able to produce a unique range of modern art that's all about big bold shapes, rich colours and intricate levels of detailing. All of his business comes through his website and he has no gallery representation. With a  background in marketing and SEO, we'll be talking about these things in the Hangout and how artists can embrace basic business concepts without losing their creative integrity.************************************************************************************************How the Hangout works:For the first 30 minutes of the hangout, it will be just Ed, Abigail, and I, and the hangout will be streamed from this page, as well as on hangoutnetworks.com. You're welcome to watch, and use the comments section underneath the hangout, as a chat, for any questions that you may have for Ed. I generally keep an eye on comments from viewers and try to bring their remarks into our conversation.After 30 minutes, I will invite those who have RSVPed YES  to the event (and whose profiles I have vetted, meaning I know you, or I can tell from your profile that you are an artist or art lover), into the actual Hangout, to join in on the conversation. RSVPing doesn't not mean you are required to come, but if you think you may want to, it is a way if insuring that you will receive an invite.Please be aware that the hangout is an interview with Ed, and please join only if you are interested in discussing art and Ed's work. :)I also ask that you have a camera, and a microphone if you would like to join. Headphones, while not required, are preferred, as it limits the risk of renegade background noise.Thanks you to the artists in the community who have sent feedback. I appreciate it! :)************************************************************************************The hangout will also be recorded, so you are welcome to watch later, here, on YouTube, hangoutnetworks.com , or the +Art+Talk  page.Previous +Art+Talk  Hangouts can be found here: Art+Talk Hangout on Air interview with Ed Swarez2012-09-23 20:00:0056 
KQED SCIENCE245,183+KQED SCIENCE is hosting a Hangout on Air round table discussion about the growing problem of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans. Much of the 300 million tons of plastic is produced globally each year is carelessly discarded and goes from landfills or streets to streams, eventually floating out to sea. The floating garbage is then caught up in the currents, coalescing into swirling marine vortexes called “gyres”.In 1997, Sea Captain Charles Moore discovered an area in the mid-Pacific Ocean the size of Texas that swirled with trash that was mostly plastic. The area was dubbed “The Great Pacific Garbage Patch” and since its discovery, several plastic garbage patches have been found in other oceans around the world.Plastic debris takes a tragic toll on marine life. Birds and fish ingest it when they mistake bright-colored pieces for food. Sea turtles and migrating birds can become entangled in abandoned plastic fishing nets known as “ghost nets.” Plastics also can leach harmful chemicals into the water which can be carried along the food chain back to humans.Join this discussion to learn more about the problem as well as some possible solutions.  Learn more here in the QUEST TV story, Plastic in the Pacific: http://goo.gl/5CjMLYou'll be able to watch the Hangout On Air here on our Event page. Please feel free to post your questions for our panelists here on our Event page, and we'll do our best to get them answered during our Hangout On Air. We have some special guests lined up, including:Moderator: KQED QUEST TV series producer +Amy Miller Captain Charles Moore, Algalita captain who “discovered” the plastic garbage patch and founder of the Algalita Marine Research InstituteDavid Lewis, Executive Director, Save the BayBill Hickman, +Surfrider Foundation's Rise Above Plastics Campaign CoordinatorMolly Morse, Civil and Environmental Engineer and CEO of Mango Materials, a start-up based in Albany, CA that produces biodegradable plastics from waste biogas (methane) that are economically competitive with conventional oil-based plasticsSarah Newkirk, Director of Coastal Conservation, +Plastic Pollution in the Ocean – Round Table Discussion2012-09-19 12:00:00149

NASA1,586,252Fifty years ago, President John Kennedy challenged us to go to the moon within the decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard. As we remember Neil Armstrong this week – the man who, with a single step realized the hopes of a president, this nation and the world – we are recognizing the extraordinary achievements of the past five decades achieved by our nation's space agency and where the passion to explore will lead us in the future. President Barack Obama has set NASA on course toward an asteroid and to send humans to Mars within the next two decades. This goal is not without notable challenges, but using the knowledge, expertise and American ingenuity that has been the trademark of NASA scientists and engineers for the last half-century, NASA continues to make possible that which is seemingly impossible. At 3:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 12, NASA astronauts, scientists and engineers will hold a Google+ Hangout to talk about NASA's rich history of innovation and ingenuity and talk about NASA's future goals for scientific discovery and human spaceflight.During the event, we'll be joined by:- Dan Dumbacher, Deputy Associate Administrator for Exploration Systems Development in NASA's Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate. He is the former Director of Engineering at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. Previously, he was the deputy director of safety and mission assurance at Marshall.- Ron Garan, astronaut who lived and worked aboard the International Space Station. He has been in space for 178 days and has conducted four spacewalks.- John Grunsfeld, Associate Administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate. He is an astronaut and researcher in high energy astrophysics, cosmic ray physics, and in the emerging field of exoplanet studies. He was also the deputy director of the Space Telescope Science Institute, managing the science program for the Hubble Space Telescope and the forthcoming James Webb Space Telescope.- Michael Lopez-Alegria, the President of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation. He is a former Naval Aviator and test pilot (Capt., U.S. Navy, Ret.), NASA astronaut and International Space Station (ISS) commander.To join the event, visit http://plus.google.com/+NASA at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Ask your questions of the group in the comments below or using hashtag #askNASA :50 Years Later: NASA Discusses Using Innovation and Ingenuity to do Big Things2012-09-12 21:00:00651

Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016

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.

This is actually an old comic; it was drawn last time we had a major shooting in the USA. It makes a great point.

We have a lot of cool things in life; smart phones, airline travel. One of the coolest is taken for granted daily. A healthy immune system allows you to fight off thousands of viruses you never think about. Vaccination is extremely powerful and also necessary to protect the most vulnerable.

Increasing numbers of kids are being thrown out of their Christian homes for being LGBT. The problem isn't getting better, it's getting worse.  320,000- 400,000 homeless youth currently on the streets;  6 estimated deaths a day. The numbers are horrific. Though every family's dynamic is different, the problem is clear; until Christian leaders change the message they are sending parents, things are not going to change. From the article: "It's a survival thing. In America, we lose six queer kids a day to the street. That's every four hours a queer kid dies, whether it be from freezing to death or getting the shit beat out of them or a drug overdose. This is our next real plague."

Whatever Happened To "Don't Be Evil?

Google Has Joined ALEC, A Lobbying Organization Which Supports

- Stand Your Ground Laws
- Voter ID Disenfranchisement
- Expanding Private Prisons 
- Fighting Renewable Energy While Favoring Oil and Gas, Including Supporting the Keystone XL Pipeline
- Anti Gay Rights
- Right To Work Laws In Multiple States
- Opposing Various Attempts At Healthcare Reforms

Late last year, Google quietly joined ALEC, the organization behind lobbying for Voter identification laws in many states, "Right To Work" laws in others, and "Stand Your Ground" laws in many more. (If you're not familiar with "Stand Your Ground", it's the law that enabled  George Zimmerman, to  walk free after shooting black teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida, last year.)  ALEC was also behind Arizona's "papers please" anti-immigration law from 2010. It gave Arizona police broad power to detain anyone suspected of being in the country illegally before portions of it were struck down by the Supreme Court in 2012. In addition, ALEC has been a major force behind both privatizing state prison space and keeping prisons filled, as it also lobbies for private prison corporations. Historically, they have supported anti gay rights measures and opposed healthcare reforms. And this is the organization that +Google is now publicly affiliated with. 

ALEC is a conservative lobbying group that is so extreme that it's now that's now trying to punish people for generating their own solar energy. So why would Google join this lobbying company, after having invested in their own solar projects?  Some interesting aspects of this are discussed in this article: http://www.fastcoexist.com/3022988/google-and-facebook-keep-supporting-laws-that-gut-their-own-renewable-energy-investments

Here's what Wikipedia says about ALEC, with good sources at the bottom of the article : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Legislative_Exchange_Council

Here's another article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/norman-solomon/google-doing-evil-with-al_b_4079436.html

#Google and Facebook, which have both joined ALEC, have said they have no public comment. But I have one:

A corporation that claims to have the motto "Don't be evil" yet embraces legislation like this has a severe case of cognitive dissonance. ALEC's investments in lobbying bills are evil in the extreme. They are undermining the rights of workers, justice, and the bills they sponsor are often openly racist. Was it really the fault of individuals like George Zimmerman who pull the triggers and are then acquitted, or was it the lobbying groups who passed the "Stand Your Ground Law which were more responsible for the legislative messes our country now finds itself in? I'd like to hear Trayvon Martin's family's comment on that one, as they're the ones now missing a son. And I'd love to hear Google explain to Martin's family exactly why they've joined ALEC. Does this fit with the former "Don't be evil" motto?

Consider this:

"Coca Cola, Pepsi, McDonalds, Kraft, Amazon, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have all dropped relationships with ALEC in the face of its controversies (especially following the death of Trayvon Martin) over the last two years."

When McDonalds drops a relationship with ALEC due to ethical concerns, but Google signs up with them, that should give one pause for thought. 

I am extremely disappointed in both the government and the tech companies at this point. #Facebook and #Google included. 

Take a good hard look at what #ALEC does and what it stands for and whether it aligns with your values personally. If you find it troubling, examine why. 

#Google used to be an organization I respected, because they appeared to think innovatively, but joining a corrupt and broken lobbying system to eke out every last bit of profit at the cost of cannibalizing the truly sustainable, creative ones in a company is not respectable, nor productive. After joining ALEC, I can't say I respect Google any longer. ALEC goes against everything I believe in. Gay rights, healthcare, safer schools, fair wages, renewable energy, a fair and balanced justice system are high on my list of priorities. I have met many Google employees who seemed to believe in these same values as well. It's a shame that the heads of the company appear don't appear to embrace those same values any longer. With statements like this from Eric Schmidt, it's not hard to see why: http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2013/12/30/google_s_eric_schmidt_we_win_even_when_economy_suffers.html

Since I've left Google, I've found some good alternative services which are actually so good I haven't missed Google much. 

I endorse these alternatives services if you are personally considering a Google/Facebook tech boycott:  

www.duckduckgo.com as an alternative search engine; keeps no records

I recommend this as an alternative browser to Chrome:  www.epicbrowser.com

For good secure chat platforms, encryptable email, check out all the links on these pages: https://epic.org/privacy/tools.html


Of course, you can continue using Google products; just be aware that much of the revenue you're generating for them by uploading your content is now being directly sent to ALEC, which is being used to fund laws that will increase privatized prisons, disenfranchise voters, gays and minorities, and may actually contribute directly to deaths via more "Stand Your Ground" laws, which they are actively pushing or in other states. 

I guess we all have to decide where we stand or fall on this "Don't Be Evil" thing. ___

Privacy Matters. If You Haven't Done Anything Wrong You Should Still Care If The Government Watches You.

This article is much longer, and I strongly encourage you to read it in full, but here is a selection I think is one of the strongest parts:

"On the surface, it seems easy to dismiss the nothing-to-hide argument. Everybody probably has something to hide from somebody. As Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn declared, "Everyone is guilty of something or has something to conceal. All one has to do is look hard enough to find what it is." Likewise, in Friedrich Dürrenmatt's novella "Traps," which involves a seemingly innocent man put on trial by a group of retired lawyers in a mock-trial game, the man inquires what his crime shall be. "An altogether minor matter," replies the prosecutor. "A crime can always be found."

Privacy Matters. If You Haven't Done Anything Wrong You Should Still Care If The Government Watches You.

This article is much longer, and I strongly encourage you to read it in full, but here is a selection I think is one of the strongest parts:

"On the surface, it seems easy to dismiss the nothing-to-hide argument. Everybody probably has something to hide from somebody. As Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn declared, "Everyone is guilty of something or has something to conceal. All one has to do is look hard enough to find what it is." Likewise, in Friedrich Dürrenmatt's novella "Traps," which involves a seemingly innocent man put on trial by a group of retired lawyers in a mock-trial game, the man inquires what his crime shall be. "An altogether minor matter," replies the prosecutor. "A crime can always be found."

One can usually think of something that even the most open person would want to hide. As a commenter to my blog post noted, "If you have nothing to hide, then that quite literally means you are willing to let me photograph you naked? And I get full rights to that photograph—so I can show it to your neighbors?" The Canadian privacy expert David Flaherty expresses a similar idea when he argues: "There is no sentient human being in the Western world who has little or no regard for his or her personal privacy; those who would attempt such claims cannot withstand even a few minutes' questioning about intimate aspects of their lives without capitulating to the intrusiveness of certain subject matters."

"Commentators often attempt to refute the [I have] nothing-to-hide argument by pointing to things people want to hide. But the problem with the nothing-to-hide argument is the underlying assumption that privacy is about hiding bad things. By accepting this assumption, we concede far too much ground and invite an unproductive discussion about information that people would very likely want to hide. As the computer-security specialist Schneier aptly notes, the nothing-to-hide argument stems from a faulty "premise that privacy is about hiding a wrong." Surveillance, for example, can inhibit such lawful activities as free speech, free association, and other First Amendment rights essential for democracy.

The deeper problem with the nothing-to-hide argument is that it myopically views privacy as a form of secrecy. In contrast, understanding privacy as a plurality of related issues demonstrates that the disclosure of bad things is just one among many difficulties caused by government security measures. To return to my discussion of literary metaphors, the problems are not just Orwellian but Kafkaesque. Government information-gathering programs are problematic even if no information that people want to hide is uncovered. In The Trial, the problem is not inhibited behavior but rather a suffocating powerlessness and vulnerability created by the court system's use of personal data and its denial to the protagonist of any knowledge of or participation in the process. The harms are bureaucratic ones—indifference, error, abuse, frustration, and lack of transparency and accountability.

One such harm, for example, which I call aggregation, emerges from the fusion of small bits of seemingly innocuous data. When combined, the information becomes much more telling. By joining pieces of information we might not take pains to guard, the government can glean information about us that we might indeed wish to conceal. For example, suppose you bought a book about cancer. This purchase isn't very revealing on its own, for it indicates just an interest in the disease. Suppose you bought a wig. The purchase of a wig, by itself, could be for a number of reasons. But combine those two pieces of information, and now the inference can be made that you have cancer and are undergoing chemotherapy. That might be a fact you wouldn't mind sharing, but you'd certainly want to have the choice.

Another potential problem with the government's harvest of personal data is one I call exclusion. Exclusion occurs when people are prevented from having knowledge about how information about them is being used, and when they are barred from accessing and correcting errors in that data. Many government national-security measures involve maintaining a huge database of information that individuals cannot access. Indeed, because they involve national security, the very existence of these programs is often kept secret. This kind of information processing, which blocks subjects' knowledge and involvement, is a kind of due-process problem. It is a structural problem, involving the way people are treated by government institutions and creating a power imbalance between people and the government. To what extent should government officials have such a significant power over citizens? This issue isn't about what information people want to hide but about the power and the structure of government."

LA and surrounding area would become one state, and Silicon Valley another. From Tim Draper's proposal: 

"Competition is good, monopolies are bad. This initiative encourages more competition and less monopolistic power. Like all competitive systems, costs will be lower and service will be better. Decisions can be more relevant to the population. The regulations in one new state are not appropriate for another."

Perhaps Tim didn't see +The Hunger Games.  If he had, he'd have known that  what California really needs is 12 states, not 6. And since we all know that Districts 1 (LA and surrounding area) and Districts 2 (Silicon Valley) will be producing Tributes who regularly win the games, who cares about the damn central valley? More fodder for the arena. 

Mr. Draper, I suggest getting together with +Greg Gopman, if you haven't already done so. I'm sure you can work a few things out. To quote Mr. Gopman's choice words on San Francisco income inequality from a few weeks ago:  

"You can preach compassion, equality, and be the biggest lover in the world, but there is an area of town for degenerates and an area of town for the working class. There is nothing positive gained from having them so close to us. It's a burden and a liability having them so close to us. Believe me, if they added the smallest iota of value I'd consider thinking different, but the crazy toothless lady who kicks everyone that gets too close to her cardboard box hasn't made anyone's life better in a while."

(http://valleywag.gawker.com/happy-holidays-startup-ceo-complains-sf-is-full-of-hum-1481067192)

He later apologized, but on his facebook page, many people from the tech industry in the Bay area chimed in to agree with him and reinforce his view about low earning people and how they should be kicked out of San Francisco. The very first reply said: "It isn't like you said anything many others in the startup community aren't saying. "

So I'm here to say, A-fucking-men, Greg! It's about time you and Mr. Draper split California off and figured out the most valuable parts, so you can get those Districts in line. When the Hunger Games begin, at least we'll know in advance which Districts are going to produce the winners. And hell, we might as well determine right now which is the Capitol. Because while Suzanne Collins was brilliant at writing the series, she set the Capitol in the wrong place; surely the center of the nation is California and always will be. Because we sure know that the real future Capitol isn't going to be filled with anyone who doesn't add the "smallest iota of value."

Oh, sorry. Did I forget to close my sarcasm tag there?

 If you sign up, you're told you should not expect to return in your lifetime. And you may be signing a contract that signs away a lot of your human rights.

Though I am as excited about space exploration as anyone, and am a huge proponent of sending people to Mars, I do not believe this is the right way to go about it, and here's why. 

There is as now stated, no return journey for any of the astronauts, ever, even in extreme, dire medical circumstances. There is stated in the initial proposal, a fundamental, built in, rather exploitative reality tv broadcast aspect required for funding, just to continue delivering supplies, which costs $4 billion per shipment. They propose to continue these shipments by the funding they propose to raise from ongoing reality TV broadcasting from Mars; assuming they will have, continuously, as many viewers as the London Olympics had in 2012.

There is no back up plan as to what will happen if viewership drops and revenue stops coming in. Since the astronauts cannot be rescued, I am assuming if the $4 billion subsequent trips could potentially be discontinued. They don't mention what would happen in that case. 

Then there's this issue: they send 4 people at a time. Even assuming one of these people is a qualified medical doctor, it's impossible for this person to be a specialist in every field. Open heart surgery? Brain surgery? Neurology? Nephrology? Pick one. You'll be lucky to have just one along. Let alone the medical supplies for a possible procedure you'd need, or a nurse to assist.

Now imagine the type of contract you might have to sign if you agree to go on this journey. I assume the contract states you'd be waiving your right to ever return to earth; but whether this sort of contract is legally binding in any court of law, since it fundamentally constitutes exile from an entire planet, especially if you develop a psychological condition, or a horrible, painful illness, would be up for debate.

Added to this is one company would be in control of media coming in and out of the experiment, and the broadcasts, with no multi-government oversight. This company would also be under enormous pressure to financially succeed. It's very possible some broadcasts could be edited to show astronauts in a more "positive" light. When the company broadcasting is the one with the financial incentive, truth can be skewed. 

Now let's look at the financial aspect of things. Space One's entire venture is based upon broadcast and advertising revenue to continue sending supplies; they mention they need to maintain a continuous audience base for years, equal to those viewing the 2012 London Olympics, in order to keep sending astronauts, supplies, rovers, and funding. 

Now, if you've ever worked in research, a lot of space work, and scientific research in general, is by nature, rote work, and can be boring. How many people tune into ISS feeds daily? It's not London Olympics ratings. It's not even low-viewership cable channel ratings. That's because rote work of any kind, even in space, is boring. Mars One is exciting in concept. Would it be exciting in day to day life?

Reality TV is scripted drama, overhyped and written out ahead of time for sensationalism. We've seen what happened to shows like TV's "The Real World," "Buckwild" and "Honey Boo Boo." Even formerly reputable channels like the History channel have begun airing less than quality programming. Reality TV has a tendency to strip quality for quantity; viewership must be achieved somehow, and it's usually through sensationalism. Let's face it, if the company wants ratings for years equivalent to the London 2012 Olympics? You can't just show people cooperating and doing experiments quietly on camera 24/7. You must show them quarreling, fighting, and show sensationalism. But that is counter to a space mission's objectives. And unlike London 2012, you're not watching world class Olympic athletes, who have trained for years, compete.

You're watching folks do chores in space, and the public world wide would quickly learn, after the first buzz of publicity, to adjust their expectations of the Mars colonists in the same fashion. Ratings would die down and so would funding, unless they tried to pull some reality tv shenanigans to up the ratings as they do on so many shows. And that is disaster in and of itself, because while you can afford to cause a little chaos on "Jersey Shore" without endangering lives, you sure as hell can't do that on Mars without jeopardizing lives. And there in lies the issue with throwing this to the free market. 

The fact that no one would be allowed to even contemplate return within their lifetimes, even in event of mental illness, the death of a mother or father, or developing a serious medical issue we can't forsee, (first onset of schitzophrenia? psychosis?) possibly endangering the entire crew.

Then there's the many other ethical issues. They're asking young people to leave their home planet for the rest of their lives at a time when they may not have fully thought out the consequences, legally or medically. Are those of you who are 45 or 50 years old the same people you were at age 20? Would you want to be bound to a decision you made at age 20?

None of the paperwork they would be signing is mentioned in the news article, nor perhaps has it been finalized, but it's probably safe to assume it indemnifies the company in the case that if deaths do result, they can't be held liable. However, whether this is morally right is another issue. The free market can ask people to do a lot of things; but dying on another planet with no hope of rescue, isn't one of them, especially if unforseen medical emergencies arise, and rescue could indeed be possible. 

When Apollo 13 happened, because it was a government funded project, rescue didn't come down to "is rescue financially in the best interests of the company." It was government making the decisions, and in the end, extraordinary measures were made to bring those 3 astronauts home. They were heroes as a result.

We can't ignore the differences between a free market funding these ventures. Perhaps the most telling statement is the one up front- "don't expect to return." What sort of company tells its astronauts up front that it doesn't have their backs? 

Then there's the issue of nationality and corporate rights. Who exactly owns the land upon which they build on Mars? And who owns the profits? Can land on Mars they've selected be the property of "Space One?" And if so, how? How was such a land grand filed, or issued?

Then there's the issue the article mentions of 'growing food' on Mars. We have no idea whether this will work. The atmosphere is so thin it may be impossible; and if it works, the crop yields may be too low to sustain much nutrient value. Many more regular shipments of food may be required, and if you look at the cost of $4 billion a shipment, it may just be entirely unsustainable. Agriculture is tough enough in arid, desert like conditions on earth; throw in Martian atmosphere and radiation, and you're facing something soil scientists have no clue as to how to prepare for. 

The main flaw is that I suspect it won't generate enough viewers to even pay for most of the initial outlay of the project. I suspect even the launch and initial journey will not top the 4 billion viewers of the Olympics, let alone sustain that viewership for more than a couple of days, at best. 

DISCLAIMER:  Possibly, after you read this, you might think I oppose landing humans on Mars, or even NASA or Space Exploration in general. That's not so. I am a huge space exploration fan. I want people to land on Mars; I'd like to see it soon. I believe it's time to dream again. I share a lot and advocate for NASA projects, and speak out whenever I can for restoration of funding. But we lack a vision. NASA itself should be heading for Mars; there's room for human exploration there, with some private investment as a sideline.

I also don't want you to take away from the post that the free market can't have a role in space exploration; they can, and do, quite often, in a positive and beneficial manner. Free market can work hand in hand with governmental enterprise to great benefit. But not fully on its own; this particular project really should set off a lot of red flags. 

My biggest fear of this all is that the proposal seems incredibly poorly thought through; rushed, hurried, and the potential for failure is immensely high. If astronauts die on Mars, on live TV, with no chance of return, it's another Challenger/Columbia sort of disaster. If we get traumatic deaths on Mars, with potentially no chance to recover bodies for even years, we back off human based exploration for another 40, 50 years. Try and imagine the horror of watching someone slowly die, live, on your television, while stranded on another planet. 

Doing it right is far more important than doing it quickly. This is why I made this post; because playing Devil's Advocate and pointing out future problems in advance is more important than waiting for deaths to happen and pointing out what went wrong in retrospect. 

I'd love to see the governments of the world come together and donate enough to see this done properly, and not in an exploitative fashion. Cut out the reality TV aspect. Start funding NASA properly again; and understand that for each tax dollar you put into NASA the free market is able to benefit and reap at least $1000 dollars of technology in result of the products generated by the research alone. 

I'd love to see an assurance as to the safety of the first explorers, so far as possible, and have them treated as heroes as we did the first NASA astronauts. But apparently that's not what we do nowadays; what we do is full-scale exploitation in the name of the "free market." The fact that this project incorporates reality television as a fundamental facet of its venture should underscore that point.

This video went viral yesterday on Plus. It's bad science. It is incredible that +TED gave Allen Savory a platform.

It is worth noting that +TED and +TEDx had made a resolution to stop promoting bad science last year: http://blog.tedx.com/post/37405280671/a-letter-to-the-tedx-community-on-tedx-and-bad-science. It's apparently a resolution they decided to break. 

Promoting Bad Science at TED: Cows Cannot Stop Climate Change

A man named Allen Savory went viral recently after giving a talk about "desertification" at TED, and claiming that the solution to the world's problems could be solved if we were willing to eradicate the world's deserts by increasing massive cattle herds and driving them over every face of desert. It was irresponsible of TED to give this man a platform. 

From the blog post by Chris Clarke:

Savory's talk is full of red flags, and to document and rebut each one would take more time than is really wise to spend on the talk. But three stand out as especially egregious.

The notion that bare, unvegetated soil in the American desert is an evil to be avoided flies in the face of everything we know about desert soil science. Bare soil in the desert includes desert pavement, a self-regulating system that controls air pollution. It includes alkaline crusts and dry lake beds, both homes to unique assemblages of organisms. Seemingly bare soil may hold seed banks of diverse assemblages of annual plants, some of which are limited enough in extent that covering the soil with grassland -- even if you could do so -- would push them toward extinction. And sparsely vegetated soil is crucial for the survival of many animal species, including desert tortoises, fringe-toed and horned lizards, and other animals that actually belong in the desert far more than do cattle.

The idea that grasses must be eaten by livestock to perform a valuable ecological function is similarly absurd. Grasses provide food, shelter, and even construction material for hundreds of desert animals ranging from jackrabbits to tiny insects, each of which is eaten in turn by other animals. Send in a wave of cattle to crop those grasses and we've diverted that ecological productivity to our own ends, depriving the local wildlife of food and habitat. Bunchgrasses can live for centuries if untrampled, providing year after year of ecological benefit to hundreds of generations of wildlife. Savory, like many grazing advocates, seems to regard such ancient bunchgrasses as decadent: In Lynn Jacobs' 1991 book "Waste of The West," Jacobs says "Savory claims like most ranchers that old growth range plants are 'useless' and 'decadent.'" But, adds Jacobs, "like tree snags in forests, standing dead range plant material is itself an important, natural environmental component."

Lastly, Savory's contention that the "algal crust" he shows developing on arid land soil is "the cancer of desertification" is unscientific in the extreme. He makes the statement at 4:00 into the TED video, but it's one he's made for years. Lynn Jacobs wrote in 1991 that students of (what was then being called) HRM learned from Savory that "Cryptogams are a prime indicator of a deteriorating environment." (To underscore his postulation, commonly Savory scuffs apart the cryptogamic layer while walking on Rangeland.)

This is, of course, completely false. Cryptobiotic soil crusts are a crucial underpinning of old-growth desert habitats across North America, and indeed throughout much of the world.

Savory has been around for a very long time preaching the same fallacious grazing gospel, and his name raises curled lips among land management scientists the way Velikovsky's name raises the ire of astronomers. He's merely the latest practitioner of a tradition a couple centuries long of land management mythologies based on wishful thinking that don't turn out to work. A century ago land speculation boosters in the American West claimed that "rain follows the plow"; Savory has merely updated that to "grass follows the cow."

But with this TED talk Savory's gone viral. His video has had more than a half a million views already, and is being lauded in terms so over the top that it's really rather embarrassing for the people doing the lauding.

It's not surprising. Most people don't know anything about the desert, and the notion of "greening" it has deep emotional resonance. To have an admittedly charismatic, soft-spoken man get up and tell us all that we can fix climate change by "greening" that desert, and that we can all have more hamburgers to boot? That's understandably tempting, even when Savory says -- at just shy of 12 minutes into his video -- that there is no other option to save the planet than instituting his grazing reforms.

The people who organize TED, though, ought to hold themselves to a higher standard. They actually have access to people who know things, the biologists and soil scientists and desert ecologists who can dismantle Savory's arguments in about 15 words. Savory spreads pseudoscientific hatred for a vulnerable ecosystem, and tells kind-hearted people that the fate of their children depends on destroying that ecosystem. Those people can be forgiven for taking him at his word. But TED has a greater responsibility to its viewers. TED should have known better.

Research Shows Rapid Warming On the West Antarctic Ice Sheet

In a discovery that raises further concerns about the future contribution of Antarctica to sea level rise, a new study finds that the western part of the ice sheet is experiencing nearly twice as much warming as previously thought.

The temperature record from Byrd Station, a scientific outpost in the center of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS), demonstrates a marked increase of 4.3 degrees Fahrenheit (2.4 degrees Celsius) in average annual temperature since 1958—that is, three times faster than the average temperature rise around the globe.

This temperature increase is nearly double what previous research has suggested, and reveals—for the first time—warming trends during the summer months of the Southern Hemisphere (December through February), said David Bromwich, professor of geography at Ohio State University and senior research scientist at the Byrd Polar Research Center.

The findings were published online this week in the journal Nature Geoscience. "Our record suggests that continued summer warming in West Antarctica could upset the surface mass balance of the ice sheet, so that the region could make an even bigger contribution to sea level rise than it already does," said Bromwich. "Even without generating significant mass loss directly, surface melting on the WAIS could contribute to sea level indirectly, by weakening the West Antarctic ice shelves that restrain the region's natural ice flow into the ocean."

Love is Love

I hope this post will point out the absurdity of denying marriage to a same sex couple if the book your religion is based on highlights a non-traditional birth of a child to a rather less than traditional family in the first place. 

Tolerance of others ought to be the value you hold most high if you truly embrace those viewpoints. So should equality and civil rights. If you have a major issue with that, perhaps it's time to look at why you find those things so personally challenging to your belief system.

Love and commitment are not exclusively straight. Our feelings are powerful because we are human, not because of the gender we love. One day our nation will recognize that marriage is for everyone. We moved one step closer to that today with the Supreme Court deciding to hear Prop 8 and DoMA. I fight for marriage equality because I refuse any barriers to assimilation of a minority group. I am not satisfied with a "separate but equal" civil union compromise. These are American rights. It's time to get used to that if you're not and, if you are, keep fighting. Our time is coming...

This is a reality. It's time to face what's going on because at these rates of loss we could face a dire future unless we are willing to face this head on. We have to live on Earth; there's no place else we can escape to. We are all in this together and we must act now. We should have acted 20, 30 years ago. This should be priority number 1 for every single corporation, government, and person on this planet. 

Climate change and future storms like Sandy (and even worse than Sandy) will be the reality as our ocean levels rise. The New York Times had an interactive graphic showing what areas of the coast would be lost if this continues.

Global warming: New study shows massive ice loss at both poles

Bad global warming news: A new international study done by 47 researchers from more than two dozen facilities has the most accurate measurements of polar ice yet, and shows that we're losing ice from both the north and south poles at an ever-increasing rate. Overall loss is 3x faster than it was in the 1990s, and Greenland alone is losing ice at a rate 5x faster. The West Antarctic ice sheet, a vast reservoir of ice, is losing a staggering 65 billion tons of ice per year.

Climate change deniers can kiss their ice goodbye.

Comments disabled; please comment on +Philip Plait 's original. Realize that everything is connected to climate change, the economy, food prices, fuel prices, medicine, healthcare access, technology, innovation, everything. We all live on a tiny little ball which is essentially an island in space. We are currently in the process of trashing that ball's environment at an astonishing pace. 

Alarm bells should be going off left and right. However, very few people seem to be hearing them.  

What can you, as an individual, do? 

1. Reshare to raise awareness. We need loud voices to make sure people realize this is a problem.
2. Contact the White House to make sure you tell them you want more clean energy, and you want it now. Say you support efforts towards funding and researching safe methods of geoengineering (attempts at climate control). Email the White House at http://www.whitehouse.gov/
3. Reduce your carbon footprint if you can. Buy a hybrid vehicle, carpool or bicycle to work. 
4. Don't play the blame game. We are where we are in time and we can't change this now. A lot of posts I make about climate change explode in angry comments with people who are very eager to point fingers toward others. Going forward we are going to have to recognize that we made huge mistakes as a species, and work forward while recognizing losses and just realize that this a fundamental part of life. Climate change is tricky to understand. Now that we understand it better, we must do all we can moving forward. 
5. If you own a company, create incentives for your workers to carpool to work and start actively promoting change within your company that will benefit the ecosystem. Long term sustainability is actually an investment, not only for our species, but it benefits every company as well.

Call That a Ball? Dogs Learn to Associate Words With Objects Differently Than Humans Do

In this new study, the scientists presented Gable, a five year old Border Collie, with similar choices to see if this 'shape bias' exists in dogs. They found that after a brief training period, Gable learned to associate the name of an object with its size, identifying other objects of similar size by the same name. After a longer period of exposure to both a name and an object, the dog learned to associate a word to other objects of similar textures, but not to objects of similar shape.

If you share a brain, do you share consciousness? These conjoined twins may offer answers.

Now that the girls are getting older, their family is starting to notice more and more of this kind of behavior. The girls use the word "I' interchangeably, at times using it to refer to themselves as individuals, and at other times as a collective unit. In fact, they often behave as a single unit, often getting up simultaneously without uttering a word to one another and fulfilling a task like getting a cup of water. At the same time, they're also prone to disagreements and fights. Sometimes they scratch away at the other girl's face, and then have to console themselves after inflicting the shared pain.

The difference between a virus and a retrovirus

While some (or most?) viruses are based on a little piece of DNA, retroviruses are based on RNA, which they then have to reverse-transcribe back into DNA (hence the prefix retro-, meaning "backward"). So the process is RNA → DNA → RNA → protein instead of DNA → RNA → protein.

The extra step causes more errors just like playing a game of "telephone" -- in other words, more chances to develop beneficial mutations that make them resistant to vaccines.

That's why retroviruses (like HIV) are so difficult to treat, and why we need a new flu vaccine every season. In fact, "HIV replicates its genome with the highest known mutation rate of any living organism."
