Currently editing my Easter photos of my daughters in Lightroom!
It's Easter Sunday here in New Zealand already, and we've just finished an amazing egg-hunt through this magical autumn forest...  all the leaves here are turning gold and red and orange and everything in between...  

This was taken with the Sony A7r and an older lens - the 70-300 from the Alpha series. It was at the full 300mm at f/5.6, ISO 1000, shutter at 1/350.

Harry home at last.

After nearly a week of being at the vets and at one point thinking we were going to lose him he is back home with us. Still a little sore on his legs but he has the right meds with him to put him right. One of the first he did (apart from fart on me) is to try and chase one of the cats. I noticed though his tail wagging all the time so I think it's curiosity more than anything else.

It amazing just how much of an impact he has made on all of us, he became a member of the family the minute we saw him. I could not contemplate him not being here now.

I have to give a huge thank you to the people that run www.adoptabullterrierrescue.co.uk who have helped us throughout this, the support has been phenomenal. And also the vet Kathryn who would not give up on Harry

Thoughts on +Coachella

I was skeptical about coming here. A lot of the articles I read implied this was a venue and event for celebrities to be seen. (There is a grain of truth to this... I saw many celebs including +Paris Hilton and +Queen Latifah)

But what really impressed me? The music.

Top three acts I saw? Chromeo, +Capital Cities and +Pharrell Williams

These acts were unbelievable. Fantastic shows, among the best I've seen. And that's just the small sampling from what I saw. Don't let anyone fool you into thinking +Coachella has forgotten its roots. It hasn't. The music is king.

I'm coming back next year if I can get tickets.

Something I don't understand about beer.

Every knowledgeable person will tell you that brewing beer involves sterilization, precise temperature control and isolated brewer's yeast. 

These are considered necessary to create beer, and yet my belief or assumption is that for most of the history of beer brewing, these elements weren't present. For most of this history, people didn't even know that bacteria existed or that yeast were microscopic organisms. Yet mediaeval households in Europe, for example, churned out beer like it was no big deal -- all without (I assume) sterilization, thermometers and packets of brewer's yeast. 

Recreations of mediaeval beer I've found online still call for isolated yeast, sterilization and precise temperatures. 

As I understand it, these elements are necessary to remove bacteria from the fermentation process. 

Yet traditional bread baking (essentially the solid version of beer) used a combination of yeast and bacteria for fermentation, and I assume pre-industrial revolution beer also involved both bacteria and yeast for fermentation. 

So how do you do that? How do you brew beer the way people in, say, Germany in 1,000 A.D. might have? 

The Egyptians are supposed to have made been on a massive scale using bread somehow to trigger the fermentation. How do you do that? 

Anyone?

Microsoft Mobile Oy is the name of Microsoft's future handset division.

When the acquisition of Nokia's business is complete, the group will remain in Finland and be called Microsoft Mobile Oy, according to leaked documents. The word "Oy" is Finnish that mean something like "LLC." or "Corp."

It's also Yiddish for "ouch," but it's likely Microsoft has the Finnish one in mind.

There are three stories and only three stories. 

I kid. But actually, if you look at most of the blockbuster movies, especially those from Disney, these lines will feel fairly familiar to you. This is Vonnegut's take, and I highly encourage you to follow the link and watch the four minute video of him explaining these three lines. It's excellent delivery and very funny. 

Personally, I like the Hero's Journey, as outlined by Joseph Campbell, but you can see that there are a lot of similarities:

'Wheelmen' sounds like a great book about Lance Armstrong's mastery of doping.

A must-read review in +The New York Times Book Review section looks at two books that tackle Lance Armstrong's doping (among other things).

Some of you know my brother +Sage Musk from his appearances in my Hangouts and his football prowess but did you know that he's gone off to college and become a gorilla? ;)

Sage would never tell you himself - because he's quite the modest gentleman - but he's actually a nationally award winning comedic writer and now that he's off at school he's following in the footsteps of his many comedic heroes from Monty Python to The Lonely Island by gathering together a group of other crazy kids and making their own "digital shorts". 

This one is my favorite so far and I thought it would give you a gorilla-sized giggle, so watch, laugh, share and enjoy ;)

The Worst Holiday Task

Easter egg hunts are fun, but the single holiday task I dread more than any other each year is the washing of the plastic eggs when they're unpacked from the attic. If someone were to start a business and charge me a reasonable fee to clean all my plastic eggs I'd be a happy customer!

On the plus side, the eggs sure are colorful. Happy Easter, everyone!

John Hauck House
I love stone houses. This old Victorian Italianate house built in 1870 has a finely cut stone facade. John Hauck was a Germany immigrant who established a successful brewery in Cincinnati. Cincinnati, Ohio was the 69th most populated city in the world in the year 1900 according to the population data I've published: http://www.thebillywilson.com/2014/04/every-city-in-world-with-more-than.html

What does circle count and view count REALLY mean?
here is my discovery
 
I did a little research last night, and looked at some profiles who have VERY large followings and view counts on G+ compared to mine...and you know what I found? Some of the people who have 1 million plus, with multiple millions of views, % wise have way less engagement than I do. Let me explain...

6,230 people have circled me...I have 1.4 million views. What I figured out is, I get 600X more engagement than many of the profiles I evaluated...

The reason I bring this up? Not to brag, but to make a point about focusing on making these numbers BIGGER...

It is NOT about the counts, it is about the engagement. I am building my following slowly, but organically, and that always results in better, deeper engagement...

So, just be engaging and DO NOT only worry about how many "follow" you. Embrace the ones who do, and be there for THEM! If you just forget about that, and provide great content...people who like your style will come, and trust me they ARE out there.

Beautful Sea Sponges & Coral in Motion

"Slow" marine animals show their secret life under high magnification. Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives.

This was an article about a student who switched from electrical and computer engineering to a major in psychology. She said she just found the former too difficult and would focus instead on a career in public relations and human resources. “I think this student was making a mistake,” said Bock, even if it meant lower grades. “She was moving out of a major where she would have been differentiated in the labor force” and “out of classes that would have made her better qualified for other jobs because of the training.”

Yesterday's bicycle trip got out of hand.

Starting from Kassel primary goal (for Ingress-related reasons) was a village named Freienhagen near Waldeck, but I had seen lots of signs for the "Edertalsperre" on the road and decided to go there as well, reaching the Edersee near Nieder-Werde and then following the Eder downriver until it reached the Fulda... but I broke it off at Edermünde-Grifte because I was tired, the commuter train station was right next to the bicycle path (with the train arriving one minute after I bought the ticket), and it was 9 pm and I still needed to do my shopping for the weekend since the stores will be closed for the next two days.

Total distance: 120 km. I really need to train some more so that I can do this faster, and without the muscle aches.

What is Free Speech in an Online Community?

Often, when we remove an inappropriate post or an offensive member from our Science on Google+ Community, we hear cries of Censorship! and we're accused of violating the right to free speech. This brilliant xkcd cartoon nails the difference between the right to free speech and the rights and responsibilities of community membership.  

As Neil deGrasse Tyson said, "we live in a country that guarantees free speech, but it’s not a country that guarantees that anything you say is correct".

"A once little-known set of national educational standards introduced in 44 states and the District of Columbia with the overwhelming support of Republican governors, the Common Core has incited intense resistance on the right and prompted some in the party to reverse field and join colleagues who believe it will lead to a federal takeover of schools.

Conservatives denounce it as “Obamacore,” in what has become a surefire applause line for potential presidential hopefuls. Other Republicans are facing opprobrium from their own party for not doing more to stop it. At a recent Republican women’s club luncheon in North Carolina, a member went from table to table distributing literature that called the program part of “the silent erosion of our civil liberties.”

...

Supporters of the Common Core, which outlines skills that students in each grade should master but leaves actual decisions about curriculum to states and districts, say that it was not created by the federal government and that it was up to the states to decide whether to adopt the standards."

Sad to see yet another example of how far the GOP has fallen. Their knee-jerk reaction to any policy that is favored by the President, even if it originated from their side, is absurd and rather pathetic in terms of demonstration real leadership. I would love to see a choice between multiple political parties on ways to move this country forward. Instead, what I see is one party with their vision of how to do so, and another with a path that leads this country backwards.

The wolf hunters of Wall Street. "I'd say: 'Watch closely. I am about to buy 100,000 shares of AMD. I am willing to pay $15 a share. There are currently 100,000 shares of AMD being offered at $15 a share -- 10,000 on BATS, 35,000 on the New York Stock Exchange, 30,000 on Nasdaq and 25,000 on Direct Edge.' You could see it all on the screens. We'd all sit there and stare at the screen, and I'd have my finger over the Enter button. I'd count out loud to five.... 'One.... Two.... See, nothing's happened. Three.... Offers are still there at 15.... Four.... Still no movement....Five.' Then I'd hit the Enter button, and -- boom! -- all hell would break loose. The offerings would all disappear, and the stock would pop higher." "At which point he turned to the developers behind him and said: 'You see, I'm the event. I am the news.'"

TO EVERYONE THAT THINKS I HATE MEN:
This poem is not meant to target or blame men. The title is in reference to the video the poem was inspired by, and I kept it as that to show that within society, we always assume there to be a clear persecutor and victim, men and women respectively (which is obviously being shown in the comments section now), but that is not always the case. Everyone is affected by standards, be it men, women, or however else you identify yourself. I made sure to keep this poem as gender-neutral as possible, apart from the portions in which I was speaking in first person, obviously, and I made sure I addressed both standards of male and female beauty (girls soft quiet pretty / boys manly muscles pretty). I'm on your side, boys! Expectations are detrimental to all of us and my work is relevant to you regardless of your gender.

Myelin in the brain has turned out to be more complex than previously thought. "The higher in the cerebral cortex one looks -- the closer to the top of the brain, which is its most evolved region -- the less myelin one finds. Not only that, but 'neurons in this part of the brain display a brand new way of positioning myelin along their axons that has not been previously seen. They have "intermittent myelin" with long axon tracts that lack myelin interspersed among myelin-rich segments. Contrary to the common assumptions that neurons use a universal profile of myelin distribution on their axons, the work indicate that different neurons choose to myelinate their axons differently. In classic neurobiology textbooks myelin is represented on axons as a sequence of myelinated segments separated by very short nodes that lack myelin. This distribution of myelin was tacitly assumed to be always the same, on every neuron, from the beginning to the end of the axon. This new work finds this not to be the case.'"

"There was a close, significant linear correlation (r = 0.791, P<0.0001) between chocolate consumption per capita and the number of Nobel laureates per 10 million persons in a total of 23 countries (Fig. 1). When recalculated with the exclusion of Sweden, the correlation coefficient increased to 0.862. Switzerland was the top performer in terms of both the number of Nobel laureates and chocolate consumption. The slope of the regression line allows us to estimate that it would take about 0.4 kg of chocolate per capita per year to increase the number of Nobel laureates in a given country by 1. For the United States, that would amount to 125 million kg per year. The minimally effective chocolate dose seems to hover around 2 kg per year, and the dose–response curve reveals no apparent ceiling on the number of Nobel laureates at the highest chocolate-dose level of 11 kg per year."

So the real question is how is Sweden able to achieve such an abnormally high number of Nobel prize laureates with their comparatively low chocolate-dose level?
