I've been a little skeptical about this movie, but the trailer looks interesting.
 
Oz: The Great and Powerful Trailer

This movie has been on my radar since I heard about it.  Consider it a prequel to The Wizard of Oz.  Ever wonder how Oz got there and became the powerful wizard that he was known to be?  This movie answers that question.

Sam Raimi is directing this one, and it stars James Franco as Oz, Mila Kunis as the Wicked Witch of the West, Michelle Williams as Glinda the Good Witch, and Rachel Weisz as the Wicked Witch of the East.

Call me crazy, but this one has my interest.  What do you think of it?  Worth your time, or another example of the lack of fresh ideas from Hollywood?

This actually works pretty well, and it's easy.

Sign a petition to change the MPAA's rating of "Bully," an educational documentary about the effects of bullying. The movie received an R-rating for use of obscenities. The rating would restrict the audience, preventing those under 17 from seeing the movie in theaters without an adult.

How Little Exercise Do We Need?

This is interesting research - turns out that exercising at high intensity for a short time (1 minute), followed by 1 minute of rest, repeated about 10 times (for a total of 20 minutes), has the same benefits as much longer bouts of moderate exercise.
This is good news for those of us who do not have enough time during the day. It is called High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).

And there are more benefits -
They found that even a single bout of the 1-minute hard, 1-minute easy HIIT training, repeated 10 times, improved blood sugar regulation throughout the following day, particularly after meals.

Yikes:

"Do you sit in an office chair or on your couch for more than six hours a day? Then here are some disturbing facts: Your risk of heart disease has increased by up to 64 percent. You're shaving off seven years of quality life. You're also more at risk for certain types of cancer. *Simply put, sitting is killing you.*"

I have a standing desk, but apparently standing isn't good either, the important thing is to take frequent breaks to move around.

More fallout from the firing of UVA's President, Teresa Sullivan.  Bill Wulf is (was) one of the most distinguished members of the UVA faculty.

And the Faculty Senate is holding a vigil on the Lawn tonight to support Sullivan's reinstatement.

+Siva Vaidhyanathan (my former law prof.) writes about the developments surrounding the unexpected firing of the University of Virginia's President, Teresa Sullivan. It's a good, if unsettling, recap of what's happened.

I can second the statement about a flooded email inbox following her ouster. It seems every UVA-related organization is expressing their outrage and confusion over this.

A Google+ tip for organizing your Stream/Circles.
I've been adding more people to Circles lately, and my stream has indeed become crowded. I like this method for getting things under control and will give it a try. I've been needing to overhaul my circles anyway.

Also, I didn't even know Circles had sliders! Very useful.
 
CIRCLE MANAGEMENT
---------------------------------------
+Margie Hearron pointed out earlier today that +Sharon Vaknin, an editor at CNET.com with over 12,500 followers, is struggling to filter the noise from her stream. And I want to help! =D

I have very carefully built my circles around a system that I am now going to share with you. This is my secret weapon to circle organization.

I'm a very visual person, so I worked really hard to make this slideshow to (hopefully) explain the process as clearly as I can.

May it inspire you to grow your circles to include a lively network of active people!!!

Many great thanks to all the early adopters who provided tips when I first joined last July! I'm standing on the shoulders of giants!

With such a paucity of good movies in theaters these past couple of months, this list has me looking forward to the rest of the year.

Had Dave's Border Burger--it was delicious. Great service, too. Our waiter voluntarily brought us five beer samples. Great beer, of course.
