Bigger isn't always better If you take the time to thumb through the Federal Election Commission reports of some top-tier candidates from the past couple of election cycles, you’ll notice a trend—boutique consulting firms are getting hired on more and more large races. An increasing number of political consultants are choosing to go it alone, and they’re keeping things small after forming their own shops. New firms with a small number of employees are popping up throughout the country, and these firms are doing some great work and winning some big races. My firm fits with that trend, and I think it’s good for the future of the campaign industry. Running a boutique firm comes with its own set of challenges, but the benefits can be very rewarding. Learning On the Fly Many of us came through the political ranks the same way—volunteering on races as young adults or in college, eventually landing a paying gig and working our way up the ladder. When you’re running a campaign, you have a team to fall back on.

The San Francisco Globe Photographer Evan Schiller and Lisa Holzwarth were on a game drive in northern Botswana when they encountered a massive group of thirty to forty chaotic baboons charging by them. It soon became clear that the baboons were startled by a few lions that were chasing them. The lions were roaring while the baboons were screaming. Everything was in complete disarray. Amazingly, the two photographers were able to capture a stunning interaction that happened in the midst of the mayhem. A female baboon tried to make a run for it but unfortunately wasn't lucky. Little did she know, a baby baboon, less than 1 month old, soon emerged from next to the mother's body. Immediately, the scared baby baboon quickly tried to make an escape but it was too weak to climb far. Surprisingly, instead of going for the kill, the lioness began to play with the baby baboon. She was both curious and gentle. "The baby was showing signs of physical harm and fatigue from the whole ordeal.

UI vs UX: what’s the difference? UI is the saddle, the stirrups, and the reigns. UX is the feeling you get being able to ride the horse, and rope your cattle. At least that’s what they used to say in the olden days. Rather, that is what I wished they’d say. Despite how simple that may have sounded, there are many complications and misconceptions when it comes to the differences between UI and UX design, and they cause the design community to go into quite a stir whenever they are brought up. An interesting note to that is that I’ve found the people who work at jobs with titles such as Interaction Designer to get paid more simply because they know and act on the differences between those two fields (typically harnessing a little of both). Let’s jump right into a standardized definition that we will try to metaphorically elaborate on. More pointedly, good user experience is the art of a drill going through wood, or a surfboard gliding through water effortlessly. Let’s break it down Generalities UX: designing for emotion

San Jose Sharks Bring Fan to Tears After Fulfilling His Lifelong Dream It doesn't get much better than this. Sam Tageson, a lifelong San Jose Sharks fan, was able to fulfill his dream Tuesday, as he signed a one-day contract with the team. The 17-year-old practiced with the team and skated through the shark head before San Jose's game with the Florida Panthers. According to the Contra Costa Times, Tageson was born with a heart condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome, leaving him with only two heart chambers instead of four.

Photographs taken inside of instruments There’s something other-worldly about these shots by Mierswa Kluska for the Berlin Philharmonic, which take a fascinating perspective from within the acoustic instrument. The internal landscape draws parallels to the architecture of buildings, and with a bit of imagination you can almost feel the unique tone and life of each acoustic instrument just by looking inside them. Inside instruments

Even Einstein Could Not Have Imagined Technology Used to Directly Detect Gravitational Waves Physicists were thrilled this week at news of strong evidence for gravitational waves, perturbations of the early universe that confirm it expanded rapidly following the big bang during a period called inflation. To gain a different perspective on these findings, Carsten Koenneker of Scientific American’s German-language edition Spektrum interviewed Bruce Allen, director of the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, about the BICEP2 experiment that detected these long-sought waves. You study gravitational waves. How important are the new findings from BICEP2 for physics? These are very important, because they provide "missing evidence" for an inflationary phase in the early history of the universe. Why did it take 100 years for us to detect such a strong signal of these waves, which were predicted long ago by Einstein in his theory of general relativity? The BICEP results are indirect evidence for the existence of gravitational waves. Not quite. Yes.

Animals in Hiding Caters News a réuni des clichés étonnants, dans lesquels différents animaux sont difficilement différentiables du décor. Des images surprenantes, montrant de jolies teintes de couleurs, et nous montrant la capacité de différentes espèces à se fondre dans un environnement. Plus de détails ci-dessous. Flat Long Shadows: Step-by-step Tutorial, Resources and Examples Within the flat design trend on the rise at the moment, especially in this world of the web, one thing that stands out is the use of long flat shadows, particularly for small UI elements and icons. These shadows have a characteristic 45º angle below the horizontal axis and a gradient color close to the background shade can be applied. This technique is by no means new. It has always been a widely-used resource in photography to emphasize shapes and transmit different emotions to the viewer. We'll show you two different ways to achieve this long shadow finish with Adobe Illustrator. Step 1. Cinema4DWe can also produce this effect using 3D graphics software such as Cinema4D, 3Ds Max, Maya, etc.
