Wild Horses - (Acoustic) The Rolling Stones

H/T +Dave Pipe
1995 - The Rolling Stones released their acoustic "Stripped" album. It is a mixture of small-venue live performances and acoustic studio re-recordings of songs from their previous catalogue.
I do like this version. It was one of the tracks recorded at Toshiba-EMI Studios, Tokyo, 3-5 March 1995.

Proposed Microchips for Workers

H/T +Amelia Hoskins

Microchips are not a device you can take off when you leave work. Proposed as a tool for industry security, the idea of planting microchips in workers ventures into the ability to track anyone at any time.
"British companies are planning to MICROCHIP some of their staff in order to boost security and stop them accessing sensitive areas."

"Biohax, a Swedish company that provides human chip implants, told the Telegraph it was in talks with a number of UK legal and financial firms to implant staff with the devices."

"One prospective client, which cannot be named, is a major financial services firm with “hundreds of thousands of employees.”

”These companies have sensitive documents they are dealing with,” said Jowan Österlund, the founder of Biohax and a former professional body piercer. “[The chips] would allow them to set restrictions for whoever.”

"The chips, which are about the size of a grain of rice, are installed via a syringe in the fleshy area between the thumb and forefinger. They cost £150 each and are similar to those used for pets."

"The idea has already taken off in Sweden where “implant parties” have become common among young people. Today, around 4,000 citizens are chipped, including 85 of the 500 employees at travel operator Tui."

UK has a few politicians who care about informing us of this stuff... https://twitter.com/davidkurten/status/1061513518191652864

Pumpkin Beignets

Doughnut essence with the flavor of Fall. Yeast dough made with kefir and a bit of pumpkin to spice up your seasonal nibbles. Finish off with signature powdered sugar.

TIP: If your sweet tooth loves sugar, you may want to add a pinch or two of sugar to the dough.

Sunday sugar is part of the tradition of reading +David Amerland's Sunday Read http://bit.ly/2Dd3Ktj. This week a focus on the threads of inter-species connection.

Exporting from G+

H/T +Gideon Rosenblatt

VCard Format and Google Takeout

Just wanted to share a little tip, based on a mistake I made. When you are downloading Circles or Contacts using Google Takeout, you have the option to select CSV or VCF format. CSV is going to be more useful down the road, but the one thing that VCF is good for is importing into mail and address book clients. If you go the VCF route, you will see a bunch of files, each named after a G+ Circle (or if you are exporting from Contacts, it will be the various labels you might have used). It will look like a mistake and that Takeout didn't actually export the contacts. But all you have to do is double-click on that file and your address book should prompt you to import all the contacts for that specific Circle or Label.

For example, I'm on a Mac and the below image was for my "Active Engagers" Circle here on G+. When I double click on it, the Apple Contacts app opens up and prompts to import the individual contacts for that circle.

I at first thought that the export was flawed because the files were so small and the individual contacts are obvious. They are grouped and need to be opened up by the contact manager.

I share this in the Google+ Mass Migration community, but figured I'd share it more broadly.

Mood For The Rest of The Year

The Sniper Mind (https://amzn.to/2Qw3t8s) is one! Yesterday was the official twelve month period since the first day of publication. A lot has happened since it first came out. A truckload of new neuroscientific studies have shown us how the brain processes information in critical decision-making processes that make the book's structured approach even more useful. And we have also seen, first hand, how the complexity of our world requires a new way of thinking and a fresh approach to the way we tackle problems. We have also realized how united we are by the nature and complexity of the challenges we face. We are truly one in so many different ways and The Sniper Mind has become part of the ongoing, wider conversation on how to best reposition our analytical thinking, skills and focus to become true 21st century citizens.

I am, always, immensely grateful to all of you who have read it, commented, provided reviews and have been part of my journey with it. Your ideas, suggestions and ways you have used it are brilliant and only make me work harder to bring more great stuff to you. As part of the first year celebration between now and the end of this year I will be releasing a lot of extra, free goodies to help make your task of self-development easier. Stay tuned, keep on developing and thank you!
