Photograph by ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images. Michele Bachmann has lately fallen on hard times. Since her big win at the Iowa straw poll in August, Bachmann has endured a lack of campaign funds, the insults of an ex-campaign manager, underwhelming debate performances, and, most important, the loss of supporters to Rick Perry. On paper, Bachmann and Perry have a lot in common: They both appeal to the socially conservative and Tea Party factions of the Republican Party, they're both evangelical Christians, they both support low taxes and low spending, and they've both been called out for major gaffes on the campaign trail. One marked difference between the two is obviously their gender.

And while it's hard to say whether Bachmann's decline in the polls has anything to do with the fact that she's a woman, it's easy to see some differences in the way the media treats the two candidates. The infamous Newsweek "crazy eyes" cover perfectly encapsulates the dominant narrative about the candidate. Magazine - Politics, Business, Technology, and the Arts. Radiometer 9965 Nevit.gif. Here’s the Key Question in the Libyan War. These days the humanitarian warriors are riding high, thanks to their proclaimed victory in Libya. The world’s only superpower, with moral, military and mercenary support from the democracy-loving emirate of Qatar and the historic imperialist powers, Britain and France, was unsurprisingly able to smash the existing government of a sparsely populated North African state in a mere seven months.

The country has been violently “liberated” and left up for grabs. Who gets what pieces of it, among the armed militia, tribes and Islamist jihadists, will be of no more interest to Western media and humanitarians than was the real life of Libya before Qatar’s television channel Al Jazeera aroused their crusading zeal back in February with undocumented reports of imminent atrocities. Libya can sink back into obscurity while the Western champions of its destruction hog the limelight. He starts off: “In late March of 2011, a massacre was averted—not just any ordinary massacre, mind you. The outset. Facebook Is Tracking Your Every Move on the Web; Here's How to Stop It. JDL’s “Travel Agency” call for a “Zionist Militant Rampage Trip”

Above the screenprint of the official announcement as seen on the “Ligue Défense Juive” weblog, inviting Militants with experience to enforce the upcoming and apparently self-forfilling prophecy of a violent crack down in the west bank on Palestinians. Translation: “The JDL is organizing 19 to 25 September, a tripsolidarity with our Israeli brothers living on the land of our ancestorsJudea and Samaria.This trip is for militants with military experience: The aim of this expedition is to lend a hand to our brothers face the aggressionof the Palestinian inhabitants and thus enhance the security features ofJewish cities in Judea and Samaria. “Source Operation “Summer Seeds” The “State of Israel” currently being in the process of arming illegal colonists in the West Bank of Palestine, granting them weaponry, grenades, tear gas, specially trained dogs as well as training by the Israeli forces are going to increase their “activities”.

Disproportional and deliberate violence by occupation forces. A useful rape analogy. Friendly Fuedalism - The Tibet Myth. I. For Lords and Lamas Along with the blood drenched landscape of religious conflict there is the experience of inner peace and solace that every religion promises, none more so than Buddhism. Standing in marked contrast to the intolerant savagery of other religions, Buddhism is neither fanatical nor dogmatic--so say its adherents. For many of them Buddhism is less a theology and more a meditative and investigative discipline intended to promote an inner harmony and enlightenment while directing us to a path of right living.

Generally, the spiritual focus is not only on oneself but on the welfare of others. A glance at history, however, reveals that not all the many and widely varying forms of Buddhism have been free of doctrinal fanaticism, nor free of the violent and exploitative pursuits so characteristic of other religions. As with any religion, squabbles between or within Buddhist sects are often fueled by the material corruption and personal deficiencies of the leadership. II. So Who Really Runs The World? A Network Analysis Reveals ‘Super Entity’ of Global Corporate Control … About. Carlo Marx « Spirit of the Thing. “Road movies are what brought me to the cinema,” Brazilian-born director Walter Salles said in his introduction to his film adaptation of Jack Kerouac‘s generation defining novel, On the Road. That being the case, he has had the luck of bringing the most iconic road novel perhaps of all time (with exception of Cervantes’ Don Quixote) to the big screen.

First published in 1957, On the Road seemed unfilmable due to its wild content then considered too taboo for American audiences. Francis Ford Coppola snapped up its rights in 1979 and hoped to bring it to the screen himself, filming in black and white on 16mm. When that plan fell through due to financing issues, he put hte project on hold and waited for the right circumstances. Joel Schumacher was going to direct it at one point – unimaginable to me since he’s an incredible hack – with Colin Farrell in one of the lead roles, but that eventually fell though. Now, to the film itself. Sal (Sam Riley) and Dean (Garrett Hedlund) on the road. XSSed | Cross Site Scripting (XSS) attacks information and archive.

What is a Fauxtographer? | Take Off Your Mommy Goggles. …and how can you spot one? The Fauxtographer/Photographer debate has been going strong for a while now in photography circles. Everyone has a different opinion of what makes someone a ‘professional’ and what makes one a ‘hobbyist’. By definition, a ‘professional’ is someone who earns a living, or at least a portion of their income, from their chosen career. Most people would also agree that a professional has established a legal business in their chosen line of work, or is employed by a legal business.

A professional also pays taxes on the income made from their work. However, I personally have viewed *horrible* photography work created by people who I know to be running legal photography businesses and paying taxes. Just because you’re running a legal business doesn’t mean you actually possess photography or retouching skills. So since there are a lot of gray areas, I’m going to define Fauxtographer as it relates to commentary on this website. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Z Molu Photography. Digital Cameras and Equipment. Blurberati Blog » Passionate about all things book: design, content, sharing, life … I had shot an awesome session – one of my best! Mom just saw the previews and is telling me that she doesn’t like any of them and wants either a reshoot or a print credit. HELP! – Served Up Fresh. Although this problem may not happen to you exactly, I think a similar-to-some-extent scenario happens to every photographer at least once.

You send client an e-mail about gallery or slideshow being ready to view and you anxiously await the e-mail response filled with joy and tears at the amazing session and how much the client loved it. But instead, you get an e-mail that is not happy. Not happy at all. I hate it. You were not prepared for that at all. It’s one of those situations that baffles even the best of us. Feelings of resentment toward this clearly irrational client build quickly and you’re stumped with how to handle the situation other than screaming at them for being jerks and telling them to hop on a slow boat to China. More often than not, irrational client issues will come through e-mail.

First of all, the very minute that you get that e-mail, DO NOT RESPOND. Take a deep breath and keep calm. Do not poke the bear. Cool off and poke something smaller like ants or mice. 10 Essential Photography E-Books. A top five of photo apps for the iPhone. You may not know it from your friend's Facebook updates, but there's more to iPhone photography than Hipstamatic and Instagram. In fact, you can take a class in it. For the past year and a half, photographer Dan Burkholder has been travelling the country teaching iPhone users how to turn their phones into a full-service darkroom.

Taking an image like this: And turning it into this: "Ninety-seven percent of the work is on the iPhone itself," he said. Burkholder's workshops run from a day to five days. This fall, Burkholder will publish a book on iPhone photography called "iPhone Artistry. " "More and more people are doing serious iPhone photography, and it's only going to grow," he said.

A Father Who Creatively Captures His Kids (20 photos) If there was a prize that could be given out to the most creative father, I'd hope that it was awarded to Jason Lee. A wedding photographer by day, he's used to capturing some of the most important moments in a couple's lives. As a longtime fan of Jason's photos on Flickr however, I think the real magic happens when he turns the camera onto his daughters. Sure, his children are adorably cute in their own right, but that's not what makes his photos so interesting. It's when he puts his own spin on their everyday moments that we not only get to experience our own childhood again, we're able to see a father's pride shine through.

I was able to get in touch with Jason to ask him a few questions. Q: How did you get into photography? Q: How do you come up with such creative photos of your daughters? Q: How has being on Flickr helped you with your business? Q: Any inspirational stories you'd like to share? Q: Do you have any advice for aspiring photographers? Q: Any quotes you live by?

Photography. Incredible quadruple transit on Saturn! The folks at Hubble just released this fantastic image! OK, duh, that’s Saturn. But you can see four moons crossing its face at the same time! Such an event is pretty rare, and very cool. The moons are (from left to right) Enceladus, Dione, Titan, and Mimas. You can also see the shadows of Enceladus and Dione on the planet’s cloudtops, too. Whoa. Saturn, like the Earth, is tilted with respect to its orbit around the Sun.

The icy particles in the rings orbits over Saturn’s equator, just as the moons do. Besides the relative rarity of this event, what strikes me the most is how seriously frakkin’ big Titan is: if Titan were orbiting the Sun, there’s be no question is would be a planet; it’s easily bigger than Mercury! I’ll add that I went out to look at Saturn a few days ago; it’s up when the Sun sets, easily visible in the constellation of Leo.
