All Documentaries Welcome to the Must Watch section. It is our understanding that for a truly democratic society to exist, there must be a free flow of easily accessible information. For the most part (not including heavy censorship in China), the Internet has allowed for this free flow of information to everyone and anyone with access to the internet and it is imperative that this right continues to be protected. 100 Time-Saving Search Engines for Serious Scholars While burying yourself in the stacks at the library is one way to get some serious research done, with today’s technology you can do quite a bit of useful searching before you ever set foot inside a library.

Genre-form Guide (Motion Picture and Television Reading Room, Library of Congress) Compiled by: Brian Taves (Chair) Judi Hoffman Karen Lund February 1998 Table of Contents How your phone tracks your every move Updated Introduction As we move through the modern world many of our actions leave behind an electronic footprint; who collects that data and what they do with it have become critical questions for modern society. Australia's new data retention laws mean phone and internet companies have to save this information for two years: that's every time you call someone, where you call them from, which cell tower your phone pings every time it connects to the internet, and more. On a mission to find out what that data might reveal, ABC reporter Will Ockenden took a 'surveillance selfie': he got access to his own metadata, and now for the first time you can see what an individual Australian's metadata actually looks like.

Achieving Better Focus and Sharpness in Your Images Twice a month we revisit some of our reader favorite posts from throughout the history of Phototuts+. This tutorial was first published in October, 2009. The most common complaints I hear from most photographers of any experience level is "my images aren't sharp", and "I can't get my focus to lock". Most want to blame their equipment and, while there are many instances that equipment is to blame, I have found a vast majority are just simple user error.

While conflict resolution and peacekeeping continue to be among its most visible efforts, the UN, along with its specialized agencies, is also engaged in a wide array of activities to improve people’s lives around the world – from disaster relief, through education and advancement of women, to peaceful uses of atomic energy.

The Murdoch Papers Are Comparing The ABC To ISIS On Their Front Pages Today, Because Journalism By Alex McKinnon, 24/6/2015 Yesterday Zaky Mallah’s controversial appearance on Q&A prompted the kind of chronic overreaction we’ve come to expect from the government; Liberal backbencher Alex Hawke accused the ABC of “sedition,” while Tony Abbott asked the broadcaster: “whose side are you on?” Taking their cue, every hack Murdoch editor in the land duly cranked out a front page this morning literally equating Australia’s national public broadcaster to a terrorist cell that throws gay people off buildings and beheads hostages on film. The Courier-Mail, which has form in the disgusting-headline department, magically managed to come up with the exact same idea as their cousins down south in Melbourne. And lo and behold, Sydney’s favourite kitty-litter liner jumped on the bandwagon too. Not to be outdone in pure crazy, the Tele knocked up a double-page spread featuring Tony Jones palling around with his ISIS mates on the Q&A panel.
