Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Nambatac gave quality minutes in his PBA debut, racking up five points and five rebounds in 12 minutes of action.More importantly, he held his own against famed KaTropa playmaker Jayson Castro as the former Letran stalwart immediately got himself thrown into the fire.“He’s one of the best point guards in Asia for a reason,” said Nambatac, who admitted he was starstruck as he matched up with Castro.“But as a defender, I need to give my best. It doesn’t mean that he’s my idol that I’ll let him have his way. I also want to win and I want to learn by defending him,” he said.Nambatac, though, knows that there’s still a lot for him to learn and improve on as he seeks to have a better showing in the coming games.ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson “I still have a long way to go.

Building on other people’s property, in streets and alleys throughout the country or on lands belonging to government is a very common thing in Liberia.For example, a certain prominent Liberian, especially during the Taylor administration, built a huge concrete house on someone else’s property. But while he was yet digging his foundation, people came to him and advised him to stop, because the land belonged to an older Liberian with many children. But this Taylor official refused to listen and continued until he completed his huge one story structure. Now the matter is in court and the family is insisting that he ‘carry’ his house since they do not want it—they only want their land. This precisely is the theme of this Editorial—Dishonesty and Indiscipline Lead to Disaster and Tears.Even the Daily Observer, believe it or not, has itself become a victim of this. Before we acquired our new Paynesville property, our bankers required a complete survey of the premises. We did, and all the neighbors confirmed the seller’s ownership of the land. There were woodworkers (mostly carpenters) occupying part of the premises, who paid the caretaker ‘something’ monthly.When the Daily Observer moved on the premises, the woodworkers continued to occupy the unused part of the land. Then they surreptitiously (secretly, stealthily) built a concrete structure on the land and installed a machine in it. When they were asked who gave them the permission, they replied, “a man behind the property.” We called the Police, and the woodworkers admitted their wrong, begged and apologized. The Police Officer told them NOT to operate that machine until they had settled with the Observer management, and they respectfully agreed.But that is how people get into trouble—trouble entirely of their own making; and when the day of reckoning comes, they lose everything they had built without authority, sometimes even their belongings, and begin to cry. Who is to blame but themselves?Is that not what happened recently to the squatters in Fendall and to those in Point Four on Bushrod Island on Monday? We all know that we Liberians are a very undisciplined people. That is why we have serious difficulties at work, whether in a public or private sector. We have heard many lamentations about Liberian contractors who have gotten paid to construct people’s buildings, but failed to perform. What should have taken a few months takes years; and sometimes the project is never completed.Look at how many of our people working for government perform on the job. In all too many GOL offices the workers demand “lunch” or “cold water” before they can push a piece of paper from one desk to another. That is why there is so much corruption in government. And the foreign businessmen know this only too well, and that is why most of them have no respect for Liberians. These business people know that all GOL people want is money and the business people can get anything they want. Our indiscipline is endemic (common, widespread) and we carry it everywhere. Do we know how many Liberian accountants and lawyers, in positions of responsibility even in the United States, have fallen from grace to grass because of dishonesty and indiscipline? Why put up a structure of whatever kind, even a mat or zinc one, in an alley or a street, when you know fully well it is wrong? Why build on someone else’s property when you know it will, sooner or later, come back to bite you? They say fences make good neighbors. How true! For if one builds a fine home on, say, an acre of land, or even on a lot, and leaves some space, without fencing it, then leaves the country for an indefinite period, when he/she returns people would have built on the vacant places and insist that they “bought it” from somebody. Somebody who? When the squatter knew fully well he or she was building on someone else’s land.That is what happened to the people in Fendall, to those near the old premises of the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company, to those in Point Four and even to those who built on the Ducor Intercontinental Hotel land on Snapper Hill.And when the government deems it necessary to develop the alleys, streets and highways in the middle of which people have built, they cry foul, demanding “compensation” and “relocation”. They also demand time to move—time that will never be enough!We hope that the people of Point Four will understand that Mary Broh is only doing her job. And we all know that she is a woman of ACTION, who takes NO NONSENSE from anyone.Our people have got to learn to be honest and disciplined, otherwise they (indeed we) will always be in trouble.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Have you heard that some cases of corneal blindness can be cured by stem cells #– from the person’s own eyes? New Scientist recounted some recent successes for victims blinded in one eye by burns or acid. Stem cells taken from the limbus, a disk surrounding the iris, and transplanted onto the damaged cornea, were able to regrow corneal cells and give the patients nearly perfect vision again. 82 cases have been successfully treated this way. The report said this is a boost for valid stem cell therapies after recent reports of a death caused by an untested technique and scandals caused by private clinics offering bogus treatments.This story reminds us that the toolkit for regeneration may exist in the human body, but in a damaged state (03/31/2010). In a perfectly-functioning, uncursed world, are these methods the Creator might have built in to keep systems in good repair?(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
2 June 2011 The Media Development and Diversity Agency has supported more than 343 media projects across South Africa since its inception in 2004, and now plans to support a community radio station, magazine and newspaper in each district municipality, and a community television station in each province. An independent statutory body funded by the government and the commercial media, the MDDA was set up under the MDDA Act of 2002 to promote media diversity and development by providing support to community and small commercial media. “Since inception, the agency has trained over 1 300 people, provided 143 bursaries to different radio and print media, and created approximately 200 job opportunities beneficiary projects, which empowered more people with skills that enabled them to participate in the broader media and broadcasting industry,” Pule said. The agency disburses grants to community, small commercial and media research projects in four cycles each year. Briefing parliamentarians in Cape Town on Wednesday, Deputy Minister in the Presidency Dina Pule said the agency had supported more than 343 media projects across the country at a cost of R128.8-million since 2004. Looking ahead, the agency plans to support at least one community radio station, one community magazine and one commercial newspaper at each district municipality and at least one community television station in each province.

This week at NAB 2018, Zeiss’s popular lens line finally gets its full frame and metadata-rich update. Here’s what you need to know.All images via Zeiss.As we covered at NAB last year, Zeiss’s powerful compact lens line received an update for the digital filmmaking future with the CP.3 lens family. We got our hands on some of the new lenses last year, and we were definitely impressed; however, we were already excited about a new “XD” version, which now offers greater full-frame camera compatibility — and the much-anticipated metadata stream.As you can see in a great interview with No Film School, Zeiss brought the updated lens line to the NAB Show floor. So, let’s look at how the new CP.3 line stacks up.Full Frame FriendlyWhen we got our hands on the CP.3 line, the lenses ranged from 18mm to 135mm and looked great on a Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro in 4.6K. However, to keep up with the market, Zeiss’s new CP.3 line is now full frame friendly, on everything from the Sony Venice to ARRI Alexas to the new Canon C700 FF full frame offering.Rich MetadataHowever, the most exciting element of the new CP.3 line is its eXtended Data Technology (“XD”), which offers real-time metadata on lens distortion and shading characteristics, which you can monitor and share with pre-vis modified images for search functions and data wrangling. You can read more about Zeiss’s XD technology on their website, but for filmmakers looking at metadata mining as the way of the future, the new CP.3s are the way to go.The new Zeiss CP.3 lenses are quite an investment, coming in at almost $5,000 a lens (less for packages), so rental packages may be your best option.
