Canon 5Ds Won't Have 4K, but the 1D C Just Got a $4K Price Drop and the 5D ...

When the upcoming Canon 5Ds was leaked a couple of days ago, one of the features that was notably absent was 4K video recording. Instead, it will be a high-res, photo-centric DSLR that can capture 1920×1080 video at 30fps. This detail about the 5Ds’ video capabilities was leaked in a much more comprehensive spec lineup over at digicam-info. Other new details include a 100% field of view viewfinder, an electronic level, a fastest shutter speed of 1/8000s, a 3.2-inch 1.04-million-dot LCD screen, mini HDMI out, and an external microphone terminal. If you’ve been hoping that 4K video comes to the 5D line, don’t lose hope yet. There will reportedly be another 5D model called the 5D Mark IV that will arrive sometime around August 2015, and that camera might have what you’re wishing for. Canon Rumors writes that the idea of 4K appearing in the 5D line seems plausible. “We haven’t heard anything in regards to an EOS-1D C replacement,” they write, “which lends some credence to the rumors that the next 5D Mark XX will take over where the 1D C will leave off […]” Just as these rumors are swirling around, Canon gave its 4K-capable 1D C DSLR a massive $4,000 price cut today. That camera is now priced at $8,000, down from its original price of $12,000. (via CanonWatch and Canon Rumors) ...

I am particularly interested in developing a more holistic understanding of the interdependency of these three aspects of landscapes. The physical characteristics of landscapes, from macropore to toposequence scales, influence local hydrology. In turn, hydrology regulates redox geochemistry / flow dynamics and thus acts as a primary control on the subsequent speciation, transport and cycling of important elements in the environment. Much of my work has focused on quantifying and interpreting landscape-scale processes within alternately flooded wetland soils with dynamic redox geochemistry. I have worked closely with industry, state and local governments to develop and refine techniques for remediating degraded wetlands. Current research efforts embrace various aspects of environmental geochemistry and hydrology, from the mineral-water interface through to sub-catchment scale processes.

10 Reasons 2015 Is Already a Better Year for Music Than 2014

Carrie Brownstein, Janet Weiss and Corin Tucker of Sleater-Kinney. Photo: Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic Okay, we can finally admit it: 2014 was kind of a garbage year for music. In retrospect, it will probably go down as Year 1 A.B. (After Beyoncé) or “the year that Bono apologized for giving away an album for free.” Though there were a few triumphs, something about pop music in 2014 felt transitional, minor, by-default: We are talking about a year in which we could not find a better Song of the Summer than Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy,” a year in which Meghan Trainor’s woefully inescapable “All About that Bass” was nominated for the Grammys’ highest songwriting honor — a year when, due to some kind of karmic vengeance from a wrathful and definitely Canadian God, Magic!’s “Rude” was the Number 1 song in the country for six godforsaken weeks. But the good news is that there’s nowhere to go from here but up — and that it’s already happening. January is usually a wasteland of new releases, but it’s already had an uncommonly great winter for music. We are only one-twelfth of the way through 2015, and I am already more excited about this year than basically all of 2014. Let me count the ways.1. Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” Has Been the No. 1 Song for Almost All of 2015.You can’t hate a year with a ...  

Fixture Pile-Up Means Guardiola Must Find Solution to Bayern Munich Woes ...

Getty Bayern Munich haven't started 2015 in good form, as evidenced by their 4-1 loss to Wolfsburg on Friday. But with a whole host of fixtures piling up over the month of February, Pep Guardiola will have to sort out his team's issues before one bad result becomes a string of disasters.  Although Wolfsburg will undoubtedly prove to be the most testing side Bayern play in the Bundesliga for the foreseeable future, the Bavarian club must also welcome the Champions League, and with it the threat of Shakhtar Donetsk, in the coming weeks.  Schalke come to the Allianz Arena on Tuesday and will undoubtedly bring with them a new sense of belief, having watched Dieter Hecking's side counter-attack Bayern with such precision and ease.  Although Roberto Di Matteo's side have often looked rather hot and cold this season, the Royal Blues have only lost one of their last seven league games and will remember a 1-1 draw with Bayern earlier in the season that left Guardiola demanding much more from his side.  Schalke play in a similar fashion to Wolfsburg—albeit it with lesser players—and in Max Meyer, Eric Choupo-Moting and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, the club do have players who can hurt Bayern in the exact same way. Unless Guardiola sorts out how to address the inefficiencies in his high line, this perfectly capable team could pour more misery on the Bavarian faithful.  In the two weeks that follow Guardiola's men will play no less than four...  

How To Survive Snow Shoveling

Shoveling the drive or sidewalk can do more than cause an aching back; it can be deadly. An estimated 1,200 people in the United States die each year of coronary artery disease during and after major snowfalls. Genesis Hospital offered this advice for people of all ages when it comes to clearing snow from driveways and sidewalks. Moving heavy snow can also place additional stress and strain on backs and joints. Shoveling can be made even more physically strenuous by cold air, which makes it harder to work and breathe. “People need to recognize that snow shoveling is a strenuous cardiovascular workout and they need to be cautious,” said Steve Bashor, M.D., Genesis emergency department physician. To prevent injury while clearing show, Bashor suggests the following tips: Warm up first — Be sure your muscles are warm before you start shoveling. Warm up a little by walking, doing a few squats or walking stairs a few times. Cold, tight muscles are more likely to sprain or strain than warm, relaxed muscles. Warmed up your muscles? Then stretch — “Once your muscles are warmed up, you’ll want to stretch your quadriceps, hamstrings and the muscles in your calves and lower back,” Bashor said. To stretch your quadriceps (the muscle in the front of the thigh), stand on one foot, holding onto something stable and bend the other leg behind you. Bring your heel toward your butt with your hand. Repeat with the oth...  

Murder is no surprise in Agatha Christie's 'Verdict' at Little Theatre of ...

Verdictnu.JPG Jack Eilber and Tammy Vasbinder are among the stars of Agatha Christie's "Verdict," on stage through Feb. 8 at Little Theatre of Mechanicsburg. (Little Theatre of Mechanicsburg) The question in Dame Christie's 'Verdict' is not who did it -- the murder occurs in plain view -- but rather why it was done, and who will pay for it A popular college professor with an invalid wife and an attractive live-in cousin comes under police suspicion when his spouse dies under mysterious circumstances. That's the essential plot line in Agatha Christie's "Verdict," on stage through Feb. 8 at Little Theatre of Mechanicsburg. When you throw in a thieving student, a thieving housekeeper, a perhaps too-friendly doctor, an unscrupulous tycoon, a suspicious police inspector and a pretty young student who is fixated on the professor, you have what would seem to be a quintessential lineup for one of Christie's great British whodunits. But don't settle in for a sorting out of suspects, because 1958's "Verdict," Christie's final play, veers considerably from the author's usual formula. The question is not who did it -- the murder occurs on stage in plain view of the audience during the first act -- but rather why it was done. And who, if anyone, is going to pay for it. Director Duane A. Baker has assembled a tidy cast of veterans and newcomers to tackle a show that is more melodrama than mystery. Baker, who fell ill during the rehearsal process, thanked stage manager Michael Guenther...  

Jailed, thieves who stole £5k of mobile phones in map distraction scam

Gangs are targeting shoppers and diners for their posh mobile phones by pretending to be lost and using a map as a distraction. In one spree, up to £5,000 worth of phones as well as wallets were stolen over 37 days by the gang who targeted coffee shops, pubs and restaurants in Manchester city centre. The gang would divert diners' attention by begging for money and producing maps asking for directions, it was revealed in a court case. Minutes later victims who had left their phones on tables would discover they had gone missing. The shocking crimes came to light after two men were jailed for theft at Manchester magistrates court. Duca Frant, 27, stole mobile phones worth around £5,000 and a couple of wallets containing cash and credit cards over 37 days in November and December last year. Prosecutor Eileen Rogers said none of the property had been recovered. District Judge Mark Hadfield jailed Frant for 12 months, telling him: “People were caused a huge amount of inconvenience. “And it is likely in the case of the phones that photographs will be lost forever. “A prison sentence is inevitable. I had considered sending you to the Crown Court to be dealt with but I have decided that my powers are just sufficient.” The gang tended to target women for their phones Frant, of Bloomfield Drive, Cheetham Hill, and originally from Romania, pleaded guilty to 12 counts of theft. The majority of the victims were women and their phones were valued at &...

iPhone sales take a big bite out of Android shipments

For the first time ever, shipments of Android smartphones fell in the holiday quarter. Lollipop is just one version of Google's Android mobile operating system. Google The holidays weren't so jolly for Android smartphones, after all. Shipments of Android-running smartphones fell in the last three months of 2014 as consumers bought Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in record-shattering numbers. This marks the first decline in Android smartphones during the all-important holiday quarter compared to the previous three months, according to industry tracker ABI Research.The holiday quarter was the first full quarter of availability for Apple's latest smartphones, which went on sale in late September.Those surging iPhone shipments also pulled Apple even with Samsung, the leader among Android phone makers, in the global market for smartphones. Each company accounted for 20 percent of the market during the holiday quarter, according to Strategy Analytics. Most smartphones shipped today run some version or another of Google's Android mobile operating system. Shipments of Android-based smartphones actually exceeded 1 billion units in 2014, according to researcher Strategy Analytics, a testament to the number of devices and device makers that use the mobile OS. But that was for the entire year. In the fourth quarter, Apple shipped 74.5 million iPhones, a 90 percent increase from the previous quarter, while shipments of Android-based phones slid 5 percent, to 205.56 million units. A...
