+Science on G+ is a well-curated and high quality community which is populated by science posts. Since we take the time to curate each and every post, look at content, check stories and references and ask for references and links for every story, it is verifiable science. The posts in the community are a repertoire of knowledge which is reaching encyclopedic proportions which links across many topics and includes scientific journals, organizations, writers, scientists and people who just love the journey of discovery which is science.

Our strength has been our mods network, and I send this out as a hat-tip to them and the stellar work they put in to bring you the best science content which you can trust. You will not find memes in this community, nor will you find jokes. But you will find science which is amazing and fascinating.

Do share this post widely if you like science. I urge you to support us.

Thanks!

Lois McMaster Bujold's just published a link on her GoodReads page to a large sample of Shards of Honor, for people who want to dip into the beginning of the Vorkosigan series at no risk.
I absolutely love the series, but if you're on a fence about engaging in a massive 15-volume saga, here's your commitment-free chance :)

Warning: super addictive. You will most likely be hooked.

С о к р а т. Скажи-ка, Пердикл, что это за странная ленточка повязана на твоей тунике?
П е р д и к л. Мой дед воевал.
С о к р а т. Что-то я никак не пойму.
П е р д и к л. Что же тут понимать, Сократ? Раз мой дед воевал, должен же я как-то почитать память о нём. И теперь я надел эту ленточку, чтобы это увековечить.
С о к р а т. Так и я воевал, и ты воевал. Мы, почитай, каждый год воюем. Если я буду отмечать всякие наши победы тряпочками, то на моей одежде и места не останется свободного.
П е р д и к л. Тут другое, Сократ.
С о к р а т. Что ж?
П е р д и к л. Некие афиняне, лишенные патриотизма, требуют демократии. Чтобы не тиран и не ионийская знать принимала решения, а демос на Агоре. Договорились даже до того, что рабов считают себе равными. И помысливают их освободить, и уравнять в правах с гражданами. Чтобы показать, что я – за старые порядки, и не приемлю совсем нововведений, я и надел эту ленточку. 
С о к р а т. А связано ли это с мегарцами, которые, поддерживая дорийцев, воюют теперь против афинян? 
П е р д и к л. Так и есть.
С о к р а т. Выходит, это не в память, а опознавательный знак, чтобы тебя не перепутали?
П е р д и к л. И это тоже. И то, и это, Сократ. И знак и память.
С о к р а т. Ты смотри, Пердикл, как бы противоположная партия не взяла вверх. Тогда даже то, что ты снимешь ленточку, тебя уже не спасет.
П е р д и к л. Отчего же, Сократ?
С о к р а т. Туника-то выцветает. А на месте бантика тёмное пятно останется. Тут-то тебе и не поздоровится.

Went to see Ex Machina the other day, was pleasantly surprised. 
I was expecting another rehashing of the Frankenstein, but it was more in line with Pinocchio.
The idea may be an old one, but its execution is quite fresh and vibrant. The movie itself is engaging and clever, the characters are simple and yet layered with complexity. Cinematography was beautiful (and very Kubrickian in its geometric composition), CG was excellent and unlike many AI movies absolutely noninvasive.
I recommend it.

They did a far more general release last week and I was able to see it locally. I wasn't disappointed.

oh, Republicans, promoters of Science and thorough research..
Btw, Californian diaspora, Rep. Rohrabacher is one of the main reasons why strong pro-Ukraine legislation isn't passed in the House.
Better luck next election cycle, California's 48th district.

I got lucky with a great LivingSocial deal but will come back once my package expires. The studio is awesome, it's beautiful and really clean and instructors are friendly and very helpful, as an absolute beginner i took a full advantage of their willingness to go over things i didn't get right after the class. They have everything one needs for the class for rent or sale, from water to mats to clothes. Also lockers and showers, for people who take a class before work. Morning classes are a bit crowded, but so is the subway in the morning. :P I was really skeptical in the beginning, i'm not big on the whole 'alternative medicine' stuff, but it really helped my back.

Average diner food, average diner decor. Little expensive. Service was good. Local beer (Moat Mountain something) was really good. Probably would not come back there again.

Fast and friendly service, food is pretty good if you're not spoiled by New York breakfast places. Breakfast sandwich was really good, waffle was ok.
