O’Connor left Leinster last week after a disappointing campaign where the Dublin province failed to finish inside the PRO12 top four for the first time in 11 years. The outspoken Australian coach’s departure sparked suggestions Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt had a hand in his exit, owing to rows earlier in the season about player availability. Former Leinster boss Schmidt called a hasty press conference last month to tell his side of the story after O’Connor had complained Ireland were being heavy-handed in forcing his Test stars to sit out pivotal matches for the province. That butting of heads sparked the rumours the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) had underscored O’Connor’s exit – but Schmidt has insisted he played no part. “I was as surprised as anyone,” said Schmidt of discovering O’Connor had been sacked last week. “It’s not the IRFU’s decision: it’s purely a Leinster game board decision. “That’s the autonomy they have, and that’s the decision they made. “So it’s totally independent of the IRFU.” Ireland take on the Barbarians at Thomond Park on Thursday night, with Chris Henry making his first international appearance since suffering a mini-stroke in November. Henry underwent a heart procedure after falling ill on the morning of Ireland’s autumn Test with South Africa on November 8, returning to Ulster action in March. Joe Schmidt has denied Ireland’s bosses had any involvement in the sacking of Leinster coach Matt O’Connor. Schmidt hailed Henry’s resolve to battle back to full fitness, claiming the 30-year-old can “absolutely” fight his way into Ireland’s World Cup squad. “He was very much in our thoughts right through the Six Nations last season, he played right through that,” said Schmidt. “He was very much starting against South Africa until the morning of the game when he had to be withdrawn. “Since then I’ve stayed in touch with him a bit, tracking his progress, and his progress has been heartening, and it’s great to have him back. “I think he’s been bubbling with enthusiasm and he’s demonstrated that at the two trainings, and he’ll demonstrate that at the game again tomorrow night. “He’s just a good quality person to have around as well, so I’m really looking forward to seeing him go again. “He’s in try-scoring mode at the moment, he got one last week, he fancies himself with a bit of pace out on the edge, so we could see him all over the place, at least for 40 or 50 minutes before the game starts to slow him down a little bit.” While Schmidt will be keen for Leinster’s uncapped debutant centre Colm O’Shea to impress in Thursday night’s non-cap international against the BaaBaas, he must also keep turning his mind to Ireland’s politics. Ireland bosses are keen to tie in-demand coach Schmidt down to a new contract, with his current deal expiring after the 2016 Six Nations. Schmidt said he may have “a better window” next month to sit down with the IRFU for discussions on a new contract. “I don’t feel there’s too much panic and I don’t feel the IRFU do either,” said Schmidt. “It’s a really busy time – we’re in camp and trying to finish off the season. “I’m not going anywhere in June, and that might give us a better window. “I think it’s something that we will get to, but I can’t really comment on it.” After the fall-outs with O’Connor, Schmidt also admitted he is keen to continue fostering strong relationships with the provinces as Ireland move ever closer to the autumn’s World Cup. “I’ll be an interested observer,” said Schmidt of what part he would play in Leinster’s process to recruit O’Connor’s replacement. “Because in the end I’ll be working with that person and that person will have obviously a number of Irish international players. “I think that’s something that, again that’s their process, and we’ll find out when that process has gone through its full cycle and we’ve got someone at the end of it. “Those relationships are really important. “Everybody who is having to share resources at stages is going to be probably contesting where and when those resources are best utilised. “And that’s part of the continual feedback that exists with the IRFU and the player management that I think is something that the provinces recognise as well. “It’s certainly something that we were predicting we would continuing going forward and trying to be as positive as possible in that vein.” Press Association

By John Burton HIGHLANDS – Books and reading are important to Christine Mihok.When Super Storm Sandy blasted through Highlands last October, severely damaging the borough’s small, modest library and putting its future in jeopardy, Mihok found a way to bring books to Highlands readers.With the support of the borough council, Mihok established the Little Free Library on Waterwitch Avenue, making books available through an honor system.Highlands Borough Councilwoman Tara Ryan, left, and Christine Mihok stand next to the Little Free Library on Waterwitch Avenue.The name is something of a misnomer for those who think of a “library” as a structure with books, videos, magazines and a librarian. The “library” in this case is more akin to a large home mailbox or birdfeeder. It sits atop a cement post in front of the Water Witch Coffee and Tea Company, 67 Waterwitch Ave.The borough re-established its public library about 2 ½ years ago, operating out of the community center, at the corner of Snug Harbor Avenue and Beach Boulevard, and independently of the county library system. Borough Councilwoman Tara Ryan described it as “a really old fashioned library. Well used and well loved.” It relied on old-school card catalogs and the efforts of volunteers like Mihok.But, the library was devastated by the storm. Flooding caused considerable damage to the entire community center. “We’re not sure if we’re going to rebuild,” Ryan said.Mihok, a lover of books and reading, stepped up, Ryan said Mihok read about the Little Free Library program, a Minneapolis, Minn.-based not-for-profit organization, and applied for a grant the program offers to get one for the community and was awarded one of the “libraries.”The mission of Little Free Library is to promote literacy, a love of reading and a sense of community worldwide by establishing free book exchanges, according to the organization’s website.Little Free Library organization is looking to establish 2,510 of their libraries to match – and exceed – the number of libraries built by Andrew Carnegie. It has established little libraries around the country and around the world, including in Africa and Australia.“The whole idea is to put them in areas where people don’t have easy access to libraries,” Mihok said.Mihok, her husband and Kenny Haber, who owns the Baking Company located in the same building as the coffee and tea company, installed the library box after it was delivered in late April. It’s painted in bright colors, has a door that closes to keep out the rain and is decorated with artwork reflecting the seashore. It can hold about 3 dozen books.“It’s adorable,” Ryan said.Since starting, about 300 books have moved in and out of the library in a box, according to Ryan and Mihok.“It is potluck,” as to which books someone will find as people pick up one and drop off another, Ryan noted.Mihok has been advising people to drop off titles that area schools recommend to students for summer reading.Ryan said a local 12 year old, who has been coming by since the Little Free Library was installed, told her, “It’s like magic,” the way new books keep coming.Monika Ivy, a Highlands resident, stopped by earlier in the week with her 5-year-old daughter, Devon, to exchange books.They pass the library every day on their way to and from Highlands Elementary School with Devon regularly exchanging books.“You know, you go to Barnes & Noble and you buy the kids books and they read them and they’re not that interested in them that long,” Ivy said. “I think this is awesome. I think when I finish my book I’ll put it in there.”Mihok lives in Philadelphia, Pa., and grew up in Atlantic Highlands. She continues to feel a connection to the area, especially to its libraries, remembering the role the Atlantic Highlands library once played in her childhood when she went there on Saturdays with her mother. “It was our day out,” she said.Ryan sees the Little Free Library as a viable way for residents who don’t have transportation or Internet access or e-readers to go to a brick-and-mortar library to get books into their hands.“When books are right there, you don’t need a library card,” she said.Mihok hopes to get another library box to put on the other side of town to make it more accessible for those living there.
Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market richard macmanus ConclusionIt’s clearly early days for the artistic community in Wave. There’s a fair bit of discussion on possible uses for Wave, mostly around collaborating on artistic projects. But not much actual collaboration on projects happening yet.Filmmaking appears to be the most likely to gain traction in the short-medium term. So we’ll check back on progress in 6-12 months. Yesterday we looked at how Google Wave (a new product that is part email, part IM, part something entirely new) is being used as an educational tool. In this post we explore if and how Wave is being used by the artistic community. This topic was suggested by Cory Huff, a commenter on the first post, who noted: “I’ve been looking for artists to Wave with, as I think artistic collaboration has some possibilities.” We discovered that there is excitement about the potential for artistic collaboration using Wave. However the level of actual collaboration activity is still very low. Here’s what we found…Wave & The ArtsWe saw in yesterday’s post that Wave is being used by educators mostly as a real-time collaborative note-taking tool. For artists, there is similar potential to use Wave as a collaborative creative tool. Cory Huff suggested a real time painting app that allows visual artists to work together on a new project, or an event planning tool for Art events. Right now, there doesn’t appear to be much artistic activity on Wave. The closest we could find was a public wave called ‘Artists Wave,’ created by Fernando Fonseca and others. That wave lists some videos, pictures and music works – which at least shows off Wave’s multimedia features. However there was little evidence of collaboration, for example more than one person creating a new piece of art.Wave & FilmmakingThere was more activity in Wave around filmmaking. Jonathan Poritsky wrote a post back in June outlining his thoughts on how Wave could streamline the movie-making process – specifically, post production workflows. He’s now made that post into a wave called ‘Google Wave for Filmmakers: Wave Edition.’ The following chart depicts how Poritsky conceptually sees Wave being used in filmmaking. In a nutshell, all of the participants in the filmmaking process would use Wave to collaborate. In Poritsky’s words, “every job and step passes through the wave.” Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Product Reviews#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Poritsky admits that “not all of this is possible yet,” because it requires faster computers and network technology to process such large video files in real-time. However he says that “the basic precepts of digital editing could actually be done over a network today.”Ultimately Poritsky is bullish on using Wave in filmmaking because “cinema is a collaborative art form.” He cites the huge credits list at the end of every movie as proof of that.Sanctuary: Short Film Using Wave An early example of a filmmaking wave is a short film called Sanctuary. Their wave is entitled ‘Sanctuary – remixable film – dev wave.’Sanctuary is a “re-mixable Science fiction film” directed by Michela Ledwidge. It’s been in production for a number of years, due to budget issues. The film is currently in post-production and Ledwidge is attempting to use Wave to assist with that process. Wave has a couple of geeky features that may be used by the Sanctuary team. One is ‘gadgets,’ which are add-ons similar to the mini web applications you can install in your Firefox browser. Sanctuary is looking for two gadgets: a Shot tracker UI and a “Production lingo translator.”Another feature of Wave is ‘robots.’ These are automated participants on a wave. A robot, according to Google, “can read the contents of a wave in which it participates, modify the wave’s contents, add or remove participants, and create new blips and new waves.” Sanctuary is looking for the following two robots: an “AI character bot” and a “trac notifications integration” (to show different shots from the movie).As of now, the Sanctuary wave doesn’t have much collaboration around the actual film in it – but this may change if the desired gadgets and robots get developed and deployed.
The iPhone 11 looks to be a game changer for smartphone videography. Here’s how to truly unleash its filmmaking potential.The concept of using a top-of-the-line smartphone to shoot big budget narrative features meant to be shown on cinema screens is still pretty insane, when you think about it. Yet, here we are in 2019, and not only has this been happening more and more, but technology is still continuing to outpace itself with its near-yearly breakthroughs.The iPhone, in particular, has been a leader in these efforts, and filmmakers like Steven Soderbergh have already made use of iPhones in the past (the iPhone 8 for his feature High Flying Birds and the iPhone 7 Plus for Unsane).Now Apple has outdone itself once again with its latest iPhone 11 (for this article we’ll focus on the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone Pro Max) and its next-level video camera technology. Until it is surpassed (likely next year), this iPhone 11 represents the latest and greatest filmmaking smartphone on the market.So, if you’re looking to make the investment for your next film project (or just looking to make the most cinematically beautiful Tik Tok videos ever), here are five tips to truly maximize your iPhone 11’s filmmaking capabilities.Understand the CamerasSimilar to the iPhone X, and other smartphones of the past few generations with dual camera technology, the iPhone 11 has two cameras. But, it has also added a new ultra-wide camera to the mix for even more coverage. In total, this gives the iPhone 11 Pro the following:Telephoto Camera12MP52 mm focal lengthLarger f/2.06-element lensOptical image stabilizationFocus pixelsWide Camera12MP26 mm f/1.86-element lensOptical image stabilization100 percent focus pixelsUltra Wide Camera12MP13 mm f/2.45-element lens120-degree field of viewThese three lenses together give some of the most comprehensive in-smartphone coverage of any offered on the market. It also provides a solution for capturing that near-fisheye ultra wide cinematic-looking footage with its new third camera, which can be seen in this video by filmmaker Rian Johnson:And, technically speaking, with the iPhone 11’s front-facing “selfie” camera you’re actually getting four cameras on one device. This begins to matter when the iPhone 11 is used with partner program Filmic Pro for capturing and utilizing multiple angles at once. Over on Shutterstock Tutorials, Rubidium Wu takes a look at what to expect when shooting a feature on the iPhone 11 Pro compared to a cinema camera like the Canon C200. Stabilize with Tripods and GimbalsSo, your first real additional step for maximizing your iPhone 11 — after simply understanding the multiple cameras at your disposal — will be to solve the problems of stabilization. While in-camera auto-stabilization is still making some very impressive advancements, it might be asking too much to use a hand-held for most of your filmmaking projects.Luckily, third party stabilization options for smartphones are also abundant and quite affordable these days as well. Here are a couple options that should work with the different iPhone 11s:Shuzhu Tripod: $15PEYOU Tripod: $23Manfrotto Tripod: $28For gimbals, the popular DJI Osmo Mobile 3 is an industry leader. And, while reports of the Mobile 3 not quite fitting the iPhone 11 Pro or Max are coming in, you can rest assured that DJI will have options soon.Lighting Options and RigsImage by Niphon Subsri.A couple of things to note. One, while the iPhone 11 does finally offer some impressive low light and “Night Mode” technology, it doesn’t mean you should make a habit of shooting cinema-quality footage without the use of additional lighting sources.And two, while filmmakers like Steven Soderbergh or Sean Baker on Tangerine did shoot with iPhones, they also still used industry standard lights for the majority of their production. Lighting matters! As such, the best options for lighting scenes when shooting with your iPhone 11 will be using the same lighting solutions you might use on any regular project. And, if you’re looking for resources, help, or inspiration, here are some articles to read up on:Lighting 101: A Quick Guide for Lighting FilmThe Simple, Stable Solution to Rigging Your Lights AnywhereVideo Tutorial: Create a DIY Wireless China Ball LightHowever, if you really want to push your iPhone 11’s capabilities in or on camera, these iPhone ring lights are quite popular. Keep in mind they are mostly used for selfie-style recording.Other Audio OptionsSimilar to lighting, audio becomes a big concern for any smartphone-shot film projects. It’s also similarly solved by following the same production procedures that you’d find for any other type of filmmaking with DSLR, mirrorless, or cinema-level cameras. Your audio will only be as good as the effort you put into it. And, good audio requires at least one or two individuals dedicated to capturing audio with boom mics, lapels, and a solid audio recorder that can be monitored and reviewed for every shot.Here are some good audio recording resources:The Indie Filmmaker’s Guide to Recording Audio9 Things You Should Check Before Recording AudioAudio Tip: How to Get Good Sound on Every BudgetAgain, there are options which can work directly with your smartphone. And, while these will help, be careful to not rely on them too much in favor of using audio recording in more traditional filmmaking ways.Smartphone Editing OptionsOne area that is actually advancing fast enough to compete against traditional filmmaking practices are the much improved and impressive smartphone editing apps and options. While you’re still probably best served transferring your iPhone 11 footage to a laptop or PC to work in your NLE editing platforms of choice, there are more and more options out there for editing in-smartphone, making run-and-gun projects much more possible than ever before.Here’s a full list of options with information and reviews to consider.Top image via Apple.For more smartphone filmmaking tips, tricks, and guides, check out these additional articles below:3 Simple Tips for Stabilizing Smartphone VideographyWorking With Vertical Phone Footage in Post-ProductionSmartphone Filmmaking: Saving Battery Life and Storage SpaceShooting a Feature with an iPhone the Soderbergh WayShould You Make a Feature Film on a Phone?

Crystal Palace boss Hodgson defends his tactics for Chelsea defeatby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCrystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson defended his tactics for defeat to Chelsea.N’Golo Kante struck the only goal of the game, with Hodgson admitting he wanted to keep things tight to the end.The manager said, “We couldn’t be more adventurous unless we wanted to get beaten 4-0 or 5-0. It wasn’t one of our better days technically so we could have opened ourselves up for 40 minutes and see them exploit the spaces, or we could try and do what we did and keep things tight and the keep the game under some sort of control until 20 minutes from the end and try to take our chances.“That’s what we did but it didn’t work as we didn’t score. It was the sort of game where we could have played better on the ball, and they were very, very good in terms of their organisation and structure, so it was going to be a tight game if we could keep it tight. That’s why we lost the game 1-0 and not by a lot of goals.”Reflecting further on the game, he added: “They were very good, but in the first half our discipline was very focussed and we limited their goalscoring chances, and apart from their offside goal I thought we did quite well.“After they scored the goal we missed two opportunities but we couldn’t get hold of the ball enough as they kept it too well and we weren’t able to get it from them.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
