Enjoy my latest, heavily curated edition of the Super Science Circle.Please share this circle... for Science!For the uninitiated, I maintain a circle of 450+ people who are active on Google+ and regularly post on Google+. In this circle you'll find scientists, journalists, astronauts, educators, and science enthusiasts. By importing this circle into your own circles, you'll immediately gain a vibrant and fascinating feed of amazing science stories.I recognize that it might be too much science, so I suggest you create a brand new temporary circle and evaluate the people in the circle. Only transfer the keepers to your permanent circles. Then, when I update the circle next month, rinse and repeat.Are you active on G+ and regularly post about science? +mention me and I'll check out your profile.Remember, please share this post2013-05-22 19:26:51456348390CC G+

If anyone tells you G+ is a ghost town (not that anyone does any more), get them to import this circle. PLEASE SHARE THIS CIRCLE... FOR SCIENCE!I have personally reviewed each and every person on this list, to make sure that they:1. Are active and engaged on Google+2. Regularly post science-related stories on Google+In this list you'll find scientists, journalists, researchers, professors, astronauts and general science enthusiasts. Not everyone in this list is going to be to your personal liking. So what you'll want to do is import the list into a temporary circle. Then move people over one by one into more permanent locations in your circles.I'm always looking for more people to add to the list, so if you know people who meet my criteria, feel free to nominate them.Again, please share the circle.

Fraser Cain759,117The Return of the Super Science CircleOkay, I'll admit, I made a mistake in retiring the Super Science Circle. I wasn't wrong; Communities are still the future and the best way to make friends here on Google+. But I realized that the Super Science Circle is simple and efficient way to get new people to see that Google+ isn't a ghost town.PLEASE SHARE THIS POST... FOR SCIENCE!When I was attending +ScienceOnline 2013, I must have helped dozens of people join Google+, and the first thing I had them do was import this circle. It's an invaluable tool for getting new people up to speed.So, I just did a complete refresh on the circle. I examined every single member and judged them according to my two-part criteria:1. Active in the last 30 days or so.2. Regularly post on scientific topics.If you know anyone who might make a good candidate for this circle, please let me know.As always, import this circle into a new, temporary circle, and then you can refresh it when I share a new version.DON'T FORGET TO SHARE THIS POST2013-03-19 22:39:3139967163160CC G+

The Yiddish word "chutzpah" means gall and utterly arrogant nerve. It should be re-spelled to "koch-spah" after this news… that the ever-meddlesome Koch brothers are now funding a major campaign against state efforts to ramp up solar energy.  It would be one thing if they limited their attacks to ending tax rebates and minor subsidies for solar and wind… hypocritical, given how much they have benefited from vastly larger oil-gas-coal subsidies, tax breaks and almost free access to resources on public lands. 

No, they are also targeting "net metering" which is the law allowing a homeowner who owns a rooftop solar unit to sell excess power back to the utility.

Please read that again.  The Koch brothers do not want you selling your excess power to the market. Their b... more »

Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes. Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.

"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."

That's right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

We can't prevent all hacks. So why not take a resilience approach and focus on minimizing damage to the user if their data is stolen? What would this look like?

Some systems that do this are already in place. I had my debit card number stolen (twice!) several years ago, but dealing with it was nothing more than annoyance.

Some good news, despite the negative headline. I do wonder how much of this is large hydro.

[F]alling costs meant renewables accounted for 8.5% of the global electricity mix, up from 7.8% in 2012.

Renewables accounted for 43.6% of newly installed generation capacity in 2013.

Common sense, people! Eat when you're hungry, drink when you're thirsty, stop when you're not.

An interesting piece about "de facto states" (although the term may overstate the case -- pun intended) in the former Soviet Union.

"The study, conducted by the university’s Department of Social Work, found Moore Place saved $1.8 million in its first year by drastically reducing the amount of time its tenants spent in emergency rooms (447 fewer visits) and admitted to hospitals (372 fewer days). Statistics show tenants also stayed out of trouble more, with a 78 percent drop in arrests and 84 percent fewer days spent in jail."

This is very cool. I wonder how the proposed training would work, though.

What's a Code School drop out to do?  +Audrey Watters did you ever find a way that appealed to you?  The roar is getting louder.  TNW had an article this week that called it a literacy and I agree.  Happy to hear suggestions from people who picked up some basics online without too much time or commitment and hoping this sentence is not an oxymoron.  Don't say Code School.  :)

Surpise #1: Willie Nelson has a version of "Hallelujah". Surprise #2: It works, being close in spirit to Leonard Cohen's original. (He wisely uses those lyrics rather than the more famous ones Jeff Buckley used.)

 After years of predicting it would happen -- and after years of having their suggestions largely ignored by companies, farmers and regulators -- scientists have documented the rapid evolution of corn rootworms that are resistant to Bt corn.  Read about how proper procedures were mismanaged and ignoring the scientists is leading to an agricultural problem of real substance.

This is what ethnic nationalism looks like.

Reaching deep into Russian and Soviet history, [Putin] cast himself as the guardian of the Russian people, even those beyond its post-Soviet borders, restoring a part of an empire that the collapse of the Soviet Union had left abandoned to the cruel fates of what he described as a procession of hapless democratic leaders in Ukraine.

“Millions of Russians went to bed in one country and woke up abroad,” he said. “Overnight, they were minorities in the former Soviet republics, and the Russian people became one of the biggest — if not the biggest — divided nations in the world.”

He cited the 10th-century baptism of Prince Vladimir, whose conversion to Orthodox Christianity transformed the kingdom then known as Rus into the foundation of the empire that became Russia. He called Kiev “the mother of Russian cities,”making clear th... more »

Major Discovery: Scientists have found the first direct evidence of cosmic inflation, which describes the rapid expansion of spacetime just after the Big Bang. The find also confirms the existence of long-theorized gravitational waves. Read more on this exciting news here: http://buff.ly/1dheQGV

Wait, Just How Gendered is "Bossy"?

In connection with the #banbossy debate going on now (and a conversation with +Plato Nista ), I decided to look up just how gendered the use of "bossy" is. Is it really reserved for girls?

I ran some Google searches and looked at the numbers of results. Comparing "son is bossy" to "daughter is bossy" seems to support the original thesis: 1160 hits for "son" and 42,300 hits for "daughter". (These results may well be somewhat skewed by the recent discussion.) But more general searches provide contradictory results. The phrase "he is bossy" gets 224,000 hits, while "she is bossy" gets 155,000. Contracting the phrases to "he's bossy" and "she's bossy" gives 37,200 vs. 33,500 -- roughly equal numbers. While the current discussion of girls,... more »

Bit of a rude awakening this morning.

A durable peace, said JFK, could be constructed "not on a sudden revolution in human nature but on a gradual evolution in human institutions ... World peace, like community peace, does not require that each man love his neighbor. It requires only that they live together in mutual tolerance, submitting their disputes to a just and peaceful settlement."

Then President Kennedy became more specific: "We seek to strengthen the United Nations ... to develop it into a genuine world security system ... This will require a new effort to achieve world law. ... Our primary long range interest ... is general and complete disarmament ... to build the new institutions of peace which would take the place of arms."

Fourteen years earlier, JFK had endorsed a legislative action that described the kind of "institutions of peace" that would constitute a "genuine world... more »
