The summer solstice, the longest day of the year, is upon us and this year the event is extra special.Today coincides with the Strawberry Moon, which happens once every 70 years.The term was coined by early Native Americans, the The Algonquian tribe, to describe the full moon that marks the start of the strawberry picking season.Every year thousands gather at Stonehenge, Wiltshire, to celebrate the longest day of the year.Technically, the summer solstice happens because the Earth s tilt towards sun is at its maximum.

Otherwise, players are free to spend hundreds or even thousands of real dollars to buy the virtual currency needed to supercharge the experience.This information gives the developers who use it effectively a great understanding of what players are likely to do, based on their similarity to other users doing similar things.Supercell, a company out of Stockholm, has managed to produce hits that are truly well designed, and precisely crafted.They combine an avalanche of user feedback with multiple iterations of development, crafting great ideas and throwing them away again and again, until every aspect of the game is honed to a gleaming finish that represents the pinnacle of development and data analysis.They also lack the millions more dollars needed to get acquire an audience from a pool that already has far more choices than hours to spend on their entertainment.They re designed so that each step up only leads to more options, and more opportunities to spend more money, and more time in the pursuit of the next goal.

Indeed, lens makers go to great pains to develop coatings that reduce the effects of flare, and lens hoods are designed to prevent flare-inducing stray light from striking the front element.But in this tutorial we're going to use lens flare to our advantage for a creative portrait.Lens flare is caused by light bouncing around in the lens barrel as it is reflected off the various glass elements inside the lens.It is most commonly seen on bright days when the sun is in the shot, where it manifests itself as bright, colourful rings that radiate from the light source, or, if the sun is just out of the frame it can make the entire shot look hazy, flooding the image with a soft, bright light that reduces contrast and leaves the shot looking washed out.Although lens flare is usually considered undesirable, it can be used to enhance images with creative effects, either in an abstract and overpowering style for some unusual shots, or subtly to add a faint, soft, romantic glow to your portraits, ideal for spring and summer shoots.To balance exposures when using such strong backlighting, try using a reflector to fill in some of the shadows and brighten up your subject, thus enabling you to capture an exposure that darkens brighter skies and keeps the cloud textures from blowing out.

In 2005, when Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos began the documentary project that would eventually become Netflix s Making a Murderer, they thought they were making a feature length documentary film.But things weren t looking good.Ricciardi and Demos took a series of meetings as the years crept on, some with high-profile outlets, but the talks always broke down.The first is the lack of a specific form Netflix is looking for.HBO s The Jinx, which chronicles the deaths surrounding real estate heir Robert Durst, burst into the cultural conversation in a similar fashion, and ESPN s O.J.I wanted to create my own structure and the only place to do that, in my mind at that time, was Netflix, Handler recently told Recode s Kara Swisher.

They re basic black boxes, nothing fashion-forward, and the front left and right speakers are a bit tall 12 , but the build quality is great and the ease of setup is welcome just plug them in!As a result, you may end up with a traffic jam near your screen, as your TV, four front speakers left, center, right, sub and multiple source devices Blu-ray player, Roku, set-top box compete for space at your power point.You can mount the four left and right speakers to the wall using customary mounting brackets, as the speakers include a standard 1/4 -20 mounting hole, or just hang them on a hook or screwhead using the keyhole mounting hole.Moving on to electronic setup, the provided options are limited, and are accessed using the small but functional remote or using buttons on the center speaker.The center and rear volume settings are in increments above or below a baseline that impliedly is the volume of the front left and right speakers; in other words, you re determining whether and by how much you d like the center volume and, separately, the rear volume to be louder or softer than the left / right volume.With Enclave, you re not paying Klipsch or Bang & Olufson prices, and if you re comfortable with bass a bit on the light side, the CineHome HD is a great system and a good alternative to speaker wires for the right sized room.

I ve set the search parameter to only show results from the past week.Point 1: I Am Aware That Maps Are Technically InfographicsAn infographic is defined asa visual image such as a chart or diagram used to represent information or data.A good example is this map from Global Post.In this simple map, published back in 2014, they took a very tongue in cheek look at what each country leads the world in .As you can see below there are another 100 referring domains pointing to the old address, which it pains me to say, now returns a 404 error.Note however that many of these maps are hosted on imgur, so you might want to consider posting your map there imgur and linking to the source your original post .

Opera has announced a controversial new feature for its browsers on iOS, Android and Windows Phone: native ad blocking.Opera says the new native ad blocking feature will help speed up mobile browsing while reducing data usage.As of these updates, Opera says all of its browsers, including the desktop browser, feature native ad-blocking, eliminating the need for users to download third-party apps or extensions.Opera boasts faster speeds than Chrome thanks to a combination of ad-blocking technology and Opera s compression technology.The company also points toward data savings, saying that stripping away advertisements results in kilobytes-worth of data savings on a web page.Demand for ad blocking has steadily grown, and that's a big problem for many companies, leading to websites doing things like showing ad-blocking users a splash page requesting to be whitelisted or, in the case of sites like Forbes, entirely blocking access to the service until ad block is disabled.

In it, the controversial figure is branded the "misogynist in chief", "out of touch" and "a liar".The release comes after it was reported that Russian state-sponsored hackers had stolen the sensitive files from the Democratic National Committee computer networks, where they had been monitoring chats and emails for over a year."There's no nice way of saying it – Donald Trump is running a campaign built on fear-mongering, divisiveness, and racism," the document states."His major policy announcements have included banning all Muslims from entering the US, and calling Mexican immigrants "rapists" and "drug dealers" while proposing a US-Mexico border wall.Guccifer may have been the first one who penetrated Hillary Clinton's and other Democrats' mail servers.The references to "Guccifer" are in relation to a Romanian hacker, whose real name is Marcel Lehel Lazar, who breached the private email server of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2013.

Forbidden fruit.Thieves are climbing into orchards to pick avocados in the dark of night then sell them directly to restaurants at prices that slightly undercut local produce vendors:Sergeant Aaron Fraser of Waihi said there had been spates of avocado thefts during his time in the police but nothing as sustained as the current activity.They are unripe, some have been sprayed recently and they may still carry toxins on the skin.That could fetch big money on the black market.The avocado industry told The Guardian that more locally grown fruits hitting the market will help to bring prices down.The scourge of meticulously styled, overhead-shot avocado toast has exploded over the last year, due to the widespread proliferation of Instagram.

Barefoot Networks is also making its switch platform completely programmable.Networking has undergone radical changes in the past few years, and two startup launches this week show the revolution isn t over yet.Even more important is Barefoot s PISA Protocol Independent Switch Architecture , which gives networking vendors near-total freedom to develop new switching software.Barefoot s founder and chief scientist, Nick McKeown, was one of the founders of Nicira Networks, the pioneering SDN startup that was acquired by VMware in 2012.If there is a full-scale replacement for TCP/IP in the future, Barefoot s architecture is designed to help make the transition.Developers will code Tofino switches using P4, an open-source language specifically designed for packet-forwarding data planes.
