Discussing What is your favorite NIK filter? in NIK Filters Rick Insane Diego... says: Brillance seems to be way out front here and until last month I don't think I even used it once. I don't know what my #1 was. I used it in conjunction with Photoshop. In that mode I NEVER used Midnight. It seemed like, what did you do with my photo? With that said, I've been using the combo for 2-3 months now and I find that I'm really spreading out my usage of many of the filters because I can apply them so gently. I think though I have a picture for almost every effect in the Complete version.

NCES Library Comparison Compare Academic Libraries allows users to compare one library (the library of interest) with similar libraries (the comparison group). For example, a user may wish to compare one library's total circulation with the total circulation of a group of libraries with similar total expenditures. The steps involved in using Compare Academic Libraries are: Select the library of interest for which you want to find a comparison group. Fiscal Year 2012 data from the Academic Libraries Survey (ALS) are used in Compare Public Libraries. Missing Data: These data have been reviewed and edited at the state and national levels, and verified as correct by each state’s data coordinator. Note about confidentiality and removal of data: Because public use data must protect the confidentiality of respondents, changes have been made in the public use file used by this tool.

In addition to highlights from the Solomon R.

In order to assist Afghanistan in understanding their abundant natural resources, in particular the development of an economically viable minerals market, the U.S. Geological Survey and the Department of Defense Task Force for Business and Stability Operations led an effort to fully map Afghanistan with hyperspectral data. Airborne hyperspectral sensors measure light reflected from the earth. The spectrum of the reflected light can be interpreted to identify the composition of materials at the surface, such as minerals, man-made materials, snow, and vegetation. These materials can be identified remotely due to their unique light spectra. The project was funded by the Task Force for Business and Stability Operations, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the Afghan Government. The new hyperspectral maps of Afghanistan are available online.

Diazotypie Die Diazotypie ist ein Positiv-Verfahren, bei dem dunkle Linien der Vorlage auf einem hellen Träger ebenfalls dunkel werden. Es bildet sich ein Polymer mit Azofarbstoff. Es wird ohne Emulsion gearbeitet, die Färbung entsteht in einem trockenen Prozess unter Ammoniakdämpfen unmittelbar auf dem Träger. Als Träger können Papier (auch Transparentpapier, hier Mutterpause genannt), Kunststoff (Cellophan, Cellulose-Acetat, Polyester u. a., hier Filmpause genannt) oder Textilien dienen. Die Mutter- bzw. Diazotypien auf Transparentpapier können als Zwischen-Negativ für weitere Vervielfältigungen benutzt werden. Geschichte[Bearbeiten] Die in den 1880er Jahren patentierten Verfahren waren noch Negativverfahren mit Nassentwicklung, die hauptsächlich für die Textilindustrie Verwendung fanden. Funktionsweise[Bearbeiten] Diazoemulsionen enthalten lichtempfindliche Farbkuppler, die bei der Belichtung in nicht mehr kupplungsfähige Bestandteile zerfallen. Einsatzgebiete[Bearbeiten] Konservierung[Bearbeiten]

Google opens prior-art patent search to the entire web Google has made its Google Patents tool markedly more useful by tuning it to be even better at identifying potential infringements. Specifically, the company announced on Tuesday, Google Patents now undertakes the tricky task of spotting prior art by analyzing key phrases in individual patents across Google’s collections of book, scholarly research, patents and, indeed, web databases. A capability like this has been a long time coming considering the problems that exist in searching for patents — especially prior art. Priort art is generally defined as “all information that has been disclosed to the public in any form about an invention before a given date.” For practitioners, however, the definition might as well read “nearly impossible to search for given the ever-growing volumes of published material.” With that in mind, here’s what Google claims it can do in a blog post explaining the new feature: In March, I explained the problems with patent search — especially through the U.S.
