Jack Kerouac’s Hand-Drawn Map of the Hitchhiking Trip Narrated in "On the Road." http://cultr.me/1dLZyOP
Surely most ardent readers of Jack Kerouac's novel On the Road have tried to map Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty's American journey. Above, partially alleviating your own need to take the pains of sketching out that great Beat journey yourself, we have a map drawn by the author himself.

The boundary of sanctuary at Skellig Michael in County Kerry.

The early-medieval cross carved into a stone pillar marked the entrance to the early medieval monastery on Skellig Michael. Even to this day it is certainly a welcome sight after the long climb up the stone steps. In the background you can see Little Skellig, home to a huge colony of gannets.

Skellig Michael is an absolutely wonderful place to visit, for more images and information please see our blogpost

Core Multipliers v12 | Thinking About Core Multipliers | Change #1

It's time to take our circle sharing up a notch in 2014!!!  You've heard me say that a few times this year and we will definitely get there soon... but first, let's start with some thoughts on all this...

1. Why Do We Circle Share?
I believe that from good reasoning comes good practice and practice creates good habits. Therefore, why should we as happy Core Multipliers share this circle?

Here are my reasons...
- Networking in a large group
- Connecting in small groups
- Engaging one on one

It is my belief that true relationships and connections do not start to form until individuals are connecting with one another in smaller groups and even deeper engagement happening 1 on 1.  We are doing an AWESOME job networking, but on a week to week basis, this circle share will NOT create lasting strong connections and deep engagement alone... And that's OK, for now.

2. Are You The Real You?
We ALL have been created with a personality, skilled to work in a particular industry, gifted to share something with few or many, but do I really know you?  Have you helped me to see the real you?  Is there something you give or can give to this world?

3. You Can Only Control You
I also believe strongly that I can only control what I do and therefore, I know it would be virtually impossible for me to manage and track 500 peoples levels of networking, connection and engagement.  With that said, if networking, connecting and engagement is the end goal, then measuring that can happen, but it needs structure to do it.

4. Simple is Better
KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid is all about keeping things simple enough all can understand and act on.  Whatever requirements and changes need to happen they can't be weighed down with unrealistic rules and requirements that squelch the excitement within a large circle share.

5. Mission & Purpose
Value is firmly connected with mission and purpose.  If you ascribe to the mission and purpose of any organization and it delivers on that, then you find value in it... If not, you see it as worth less.  The vast majority of circles created in the past and today have little mission/ purpose behind them and therefore are scrutinized accordingly. (mine included)

The bottom line in the next few weeks the above thinking and your feedback will create the structure for us to Network, Connect and Engage with each other in a simple, but meaningful way.

Let The Change Begin... Change #1
With that said, let's not wait too long to change... let's start with getting to know the real YOU!!!:

Your Profile - If we are to get to know you one of the quickest ways is for us to view your profile/ about page on G+.  Therefore, for you to be part of Core Multipliers in the future, you will need to have your profile/ about page filled out completely.

One person that has done a great job on their About page is +Scott Buehler - https://plus.google.com/+ScottBuehler/about.  His About page is a good example because...

- It is personal
You can really get to know Scott by the personal and professional tone that he added to his profile.

- It's informative
You not only get to know Scott personally, but also about what he has done in the past, what he currently does or can do for you in business, and what web properties he is active on.

- It's social
I know we all love G+, but Scott gives us a fair number of other platforms we can connect with him on... And we should connect with one another as much as we can or want.

- It's complete
Scott filled out all the information so that nothing is left out and that makes it so much easier to get to know him.

The Profile/ About page on G+ is just a start to getting to know someone, but for those in Core Multipliers, I think we can all agree it's a great place to start. 

Therefore, please add filling out your profile completely to the following short guidelines to being part of Core Multipliers

Core Multipliers Guidelines
- Share this circle publicly to stay in the circle
- If you want in the circle, share this circle.
- Don't forget to fill out your entire profile! :)
- No blue heads for profiles pics
- Have a great time in the circle!!!

Just so we are on the same page... About pages were NOT looked at this week, but will in the next, so please be sure to check yours out today.  Need some advice, post in the comments below and I am sure someone will be able to assist!

Enjoy this circle and have an awesome Monday!

*if you were somehow missed/ not included in this circle, please let me know and it will be corrected on the next share. My apologies ahead of time! :)

The U.S. has handed over three artifacts stolen from a temple in Rajasthan, including a tenth-century statue of Shiva and Parvati, in a ceremony at the Indian consulate. Interpol had listed the looted objects as among the world’s most valuable stolen works of art. They were recovered by Immigration and Customs Enforcement Department after a tip from India’s Directorate of Revenue Intelligence. http://ow.ly/sCbua

Ireland on Google+ - Dirk Talamasca
Introduction
Greetings from Dirk Talamasca! Welcome to my Google+ Profile!

Here are a few things about me that may interest you in following me on Google+

My posts tend to be rather eclectic and often eccentric. I do not often repost content from others on Google+ unless it strikes me as extraordinarily funny or important, so you can expect fairly unique content as I do so love to dig into the untamed regions of the web.

My sense of humor is unfettered. Nothing is sacred and I will, on occasion, post something that may be rather shocking. Please do not expect that I aspire to any of the behaviours or actions that I may refer to in my posts unless I specifically make mention to that effect within the post. While no one can make guarantees, I have some evidence to suggest that I am a good-hearted, good-natured person that wants no one to wrongfully come to harm or unhappiness. I am quite adamant about taking a stand for those that are oppressed however, but just because I do that from time to time, it does not mean that the oppressed receive any reprieves when it comes to my sense of humor.

I love Blues Music, having had a very long association with it throughout the majority of my life. I have had the privilege to meet and befriend many of the best artists that have ever lived within that genre. I post often on Blues, Blues History and History in general as it is also a passion of mine.

I am a critical thinker. I like posts that make me reconsider my position on the world and the way that it works and I try to post content that will make others think upon those things as well.

I enjoy Physics, Nature, Nanotechnology, Art, Cultures, Archaeology, Architecture, Americana, History, Geneaology, Medicine, Cooking, Design, Doctor Who, 3D Graphics, Powerful Computers, Complicated Pocketwatches, Vintage Tube Audiophile Equipment, Antiques, and Music of all sorts (except polkas) puke. Oh, and I like Katharine Hepburn a lot.

I post prolifically on Ireland and all things Irish. If you share that similar interest, it would be my pleasure to count you as a friend.

I manage the Ireland Page on Google+. Please follow the Ireland Page. We would love to share wonderful things with you.

With the launch of Google Communities, I am now also hosting The Ireland Community

The Ireland Community is a place for members to gather for Irish news and information, Irish artists and photographers, Irish festivals, culture, music, literature, history, nature, agriculture, economics, business, tourism, pubs, restaurants, recipes, hotels and heritage centre locations.

Please join us and meet some very good and kind people.

I am also a CircleCount Partner. 

CircleCount is a Google+ Third Party site which I highly recommend as it allows you an overview of who is following you, the times when your account is receiving the most interaction, and the types of posts that receive the best response from your followers. CircleCount has a treasure chest of other tools that help you to better understand Google+

Mobile devices just aren't there for me yet. I have every expectation that will change and I desire that change but I am not going to waste time beta testing the Tinkertoys that are available to the masses at this time. You won't see many posts from me at concerning mobile devices unless there are economic factors or privacy concerns involved (or a massive blunder takes place within that industry that is good for a laugh).

That is about all I have to say for now. I may append this later but if what I have posted so far is congenial to you, I hope to see you and other Google+ Engagers in the stream!
