I just thought this offered some good approaches to online writing.

This, to me, is a video really, really, worth sharing.  The main points of it:  a)  attachment in the first years of life, and b) the message that "genes don't stop at birth"

It's not as if this is a "quickie read", so a whole lot of people who aren't inclined toward either reading, or else toward understanding people better, aren't going to be interested in this.  It is, however, something that those interested in learning a little more about people may find interesting.

Of course, link aside, it seems pretty obvious that the world is made up of either folks who aren't all that interested in "human related" subjects and are only interested in, say, technology-related subjects; or those who are more interested in those "human-related" areas (like social sciences).  Some folks are interested in "human-related" matters as those matters apply to them, personally; but aren't necessarily interested when the subject isn't just "all about them", personally.

In any case, it's, I think, an interesting piece of reading - but only for those who are not faint-of-heart when it comes to words, reading "long articles", and general attention span.

I just thought this was funny, particularly since I've been seeing that "mad-doctor" ad for years now - and being grossed out by it as well.

A lot of other people may already know about the "American Flag" fish, but I hadn't looked at any pictures of them until now.  I just thought they're really amazing....

Normally, I don't think most of my stuff is worth posting on Google+ , but since we've recently heard more and more about reading to young children (not that we didn't hear about that before), I just thought this post may have at least a shred of redeeming value (of one kind or another).
Before you read this post it's important that I mention that the children in question actually did become early readers. I attribute that to the...

While I was looking for something else I ran into this.  It's just something I think deserves sharing.
Scientists aren't sure whether the brain scars are permanent.

I just discovered that something I put on a blog ended up being shared (by me, or more accurately, by "the blog's automatic sharing thing").  It wasn't anything horrible or anything like that - just something I would never have inflicted on anyone on Google+.      Oh well, I deleted it.   It pays to double-check blog settings every once in awhile.

As someone who pretty much makes use of all types of reading/writing material for one reason or another, I just liked the subject of this particular article.

Skills
Writing-Related/Relevant: Non-Fiction Writing, Including ODesk "Expert" Certifications in Editing, Sentence Structure (US) and Technical Writing; Brainbench "Master" Certification (Associated with ODesk) in Sentence Structure (UK); Various Business Skills Including Website Set-Up; Medical/Scientific Terminologies, Research (Corporate Setting As Well As Freelance-Writing Related), Interviewing …… NOTE: Because I don't write as an expert but do often write on subjects on which I've either done previous research/reading (in a work and/or personal setting), I'm listing below those areas that I consider "subject areas of specialization". ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SUBJECT AREAS OF "SPECIALIZATION”__________________ Children and Related Issues: As a result of either first-hand experience with my own, or other people's children; or research/reading stemming from personal interest and/or a long-term project; I have solid familiarity with a number of child-related issues, including child care, child development, education (including learning disabilities, underachievement, giftedness) that amount to fifteen to forty years' of research/study (depending on the individual issue). ______________________________________________________ Social/Family Issues: Not only as a writer but also as a social-sciences enthusiast for the last forty years, I've gained solid familiarity with a number of social issues (and in that time I've had first-hand experience with some). Besides the needs/well-being of children, divorce (and its causes and consequences), the needs/well-being of the elderly, and adoption (and its consequences) have been areas on which I've focused (in varying degrees) over the last forty years. For the last twenty years I've focused on the role that "The System" plays in causing and/or contributing to a number of social/family problems; as well as on what appears to be unnecessary and massive waste of tax dollars that (at least to me) appear to be a problem that is at times not even recognized, and at other times appears to be grossly underestimated. Over the last few years, I've focused on the subject of verbal/emotional abuse, including intentional and unintentional; and the dynamics that contribute to this widespread problem. __________________________________________________________ Medical-Related: In addition to projects in different areas of medical equipment, testing, and procedures, substantial experience with/exposure to a long-term (six-year) project related to obsetrics screening and clinical trials. Besides employment-related experience/exposure, I've gained familiarity with a number of medical conditions as a result of having had close family members afflicted by them and also learning more about them because of that. Those medical subjects include most of the most common but serious conditions, as well as several that (while not rare) are not quite so common.
