War on Drugs On May 13, 2009, Gil Kerlikowske—the current Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP)—signaled that the Obama administration did not plan to significantly alter drug enforcement policy, but also that the administration would not use the term "War on Drugs", because Kerlikowske considers the term to be "counter-productive".[11] ONDCP's view is that "drug addiction is a disease that can be successfully prevented and treated... making drugs more available will make it harder to keep our communities healthy and safe."[12] One of the alternatives that Kerlikowske has showcased is the drug policy of Sweden, which seeks to balance public health concerns with opposition to drug legalization. The prevalence rates for cocaine use in Sweden are barely one-fifth of those in European countries such as the United Kingdom and Spain.[citation needed] In June 2011, a self-appointed Global Commission on Drug Policy released a critical report on the War on Drugs, declaring:

Photoshop for Chromebook – About Chromebook It’s a ridiculously powerful application, and you can pretty much guarantee that every movie poster and celebrity photo shoot has been through it at some point.

Venezuela. Surroundings of Angel Falls In May of 2011 Dima Moiseenko left for Venezuela to shoot the highest waterfall in the world — the Angel Falls. The shooting took two days and was very complicated both in its technical aspect and because of the weather. Dima shot the Angel Falls itself, a few neighboring waterfalls in tepuys and spheres over the gold mines on his way back. Now we represent the first part of the shooting — a virtual tour in Venezuela over the Angel Falls' surroundings, the Churun-meru (Dragon) and Cortina Falls as well as over the gold mines.

It Almost Happened Here The Great Depression of the 1930s was very much a worldwide phenomenon, with many developed nations suffering staggering economic downturns. This, in turn, led to massive social unrest. While many countries opted to restore order in whatever way they could, three notables established fascist governments: Spain, under Francisco Franco following a brutal civil war; Italy, under Benito Mussolini; and Germany, under Adolf Hitler. Fascist uprisings, however, did not only occur in those countries. In France, the Action Française, originally a monarchist movement formed in 1898, restyled itself a fascist organization and supported Italy and Spain.

22 pro grime production tricks It may have its roots in East London, but grime is now a truly international sound. MusicRadar celebrates its success by offering 22 tips for anyone who wants to produce in the genre. 1. Although grime draws its influences from both UK garage and US hip-hop, it's got a sound that's far removed from either of these genres. Grime beats, as popularised by the likes of Roll Deep Crew's Wiley, stay away from the conventions of four to the floor and two-step garage. Try starting with a regular two-step rhythm, then add more kicks and change the position of the second snare – this gives grime its characteristic disjointed feel. About Cinemagraphs The History of Cinemagraphs A Cinemagraph is an image that contains within itself a living moment that allows a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved endlessly. Visual Graphics Artist Kevin Burg began experimenting with the .gif format in this style in 2009 but it wasn't until he partnered with photographer Jamie Beck to cover NYFW that Cinemagraphs were born. Marrying original content photography with the desire to communicate more to the viewer birthed the cinemagraph process. Starting in-camera, the artists take a traditional photograph and combine a living moment into the image through the isolated animation of multiple frames.
