EUROPE/ITALY – Making short videos for missionary animation: a course for communicators

Verona (Agenzia Fides) – A multimedia training course will take place in Verona on June 17 and 18, 2022 for communicators, missionary pastoral workers and teams of diocesan missionary centers or missionary institutes, all interested pastoral workers. As Agenzia Fides reports, the course is part of a training course dedicated to communication and promoted by the “Fondazione Missio” (National Direction of the Pontifical Mission Societies in Italy) at the CUM training center in Verona.
The course aims to provide practical solutions for communicators, missionary institutes and associations to create short videos to be used in missionary animation and evangelization activities. The course has an operational character: from the images that each participant will bring or those provided by the organization, we will learn to better manage the videos, the sounds, the interviews. For participants, it is recommended to have a laptop with an installed editing program and a tool (camera, video camera or even smartphone) with which images or short videos were made. Organized in collaboration with “Luci nel Mondo”, which has long been involved in production and training in the multimedia missionary field, the course includes meetings with Anna Pozzi, journalist of the PIME magazine “Mondo e Missione”, on “Communicating Today the mission today, between insights and news” and sessions on “How to create a video. How to make a video. Production and editing. The importance of storyboarding”. Finally, there will be a discussion on “How to manage a video on social networks”. (AP) (Agenzia Fides, 27/5/2022)

The views are spectacular, encompassing a beautiful Cornish river, a ruined castle and the skyline of an ancient town while the golf course is pleasantly challenging, with narrow fairways and undulating greens.

But what makes the Gillyflower Golf Course at Lostwithiel different is that every square meter of non-playable area will be used to grow fruit and vegetables or encourage flora and fauna.

The brainchild of the creators behind Cornish eco attractions, Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Gillyflower is billed as a unique ‘edible’ golf course and green.

Each of the nine holes of the course, which is about to welcome its first players, is planted with fruit trees, nuts and vegetables. Hedges and hilly areas are maintained with wildlife in mind; greens and fairways managed in the most ecological way possible.

“The golf course has a reputation for not being very green,” said Gillyflower golf manager Joe Micklethwaite. “The idea here is to create a great course, but ensuring that everything we do is as good for the environment as possible.”

Micklethwaite, 29, learned to play in Cornwall before moving to California and turning professional. This winter he was back in the county overseeing the development of Gillyflower – and also planting hundreds of cornelian cherry trees on a slope to the left of the third hole. “We are all committed,” he said. “It’s been a steep learning curve.”

So now, in addition to helping point out the best line for a first tee shot, Micklethwaite can give a history of lines of Gillyflower apple trees planted on the hole (it’s an old Cornish variety eaten on Christmas Day ).

He can also talk about the pineapple guava bushes next to the train tracks and the plans for a tea plantation on the slope of the very steep second hole, and how he grew attached to the three Tamworth pigs who are kept there for help carve undergrowth in a more natural way.

Some golfers will be frustrated when they lose their ball in longer than usual rough. But the hope is that they will understand that it is better for the flora and fauna and accept the penalty. “It’s for a good cause,” Micklethwaite said.

Gillyflower was created from the remains of the former Lostwithiel Golf and Country Club, which closed in 2014, much to the anguish of its 300 members. It was quickly reclaimed by brush and gorse and might have been lost forever.

But Sir Tim Smit, one of the founders of the Eden Project, and his son, Alex, who both live nearby, fell in love with the stretch of land beside the River Fowey and, although no of the two were golfers, decided to save her.

Alex Smit, managing director of the Gillyflower project, said eyebrows were raised over the plans.

Alex Smit, managing director of the Gillyflower project, said eyebrows were raised. Bringing a golf course back to life didn’t seem like the kind of project that would capture the imagination of a green pioneer like his father.

But he said it has been exciting to find environmentally friendly solutions to maintenance challenges that have turned some courses into man-made and toxic natural wastelands.

These range from an early decision not to water the greens to an exotic response to the age-old problem of keeping badgers away from manicured surfaces – lion droppings.

They work with local food and beverage companies to turn Gillyflower crops into products. The apples will be transformed into cider, the cherries into liquor. The former first hole has been remodeled into a vegetable garden where rare varieties of beans, asparagus, shallots and rhubarb grow side by side.

The Smits aren’t claiming they’re the first to try to tackle golf’s notoriously ungreen image — courses around the world are looking for ways to use fewer chemicals and pesticides — but they hope their name will encourage many others to look at their holistic approach and perhaps inspire golfers who play Gillyflower to do something interesting with their own gardens, planters or vegetable plots.

The project is not without controversy. As part of this program, the Smits want to create a center for teaching horticulture, agronomy and cooking on part of the site.

But hundreds of residents objected, saying its prominent position would spoil valuable views of the city. Cornwall Council rejected the project at a heated meeting in April, but there is expected to be an appeal.

Alex Smit admitted the process had been “painful” for the family. He said he hoped that once the course opens early next month, people could see that their intentions were honorable and good.

Rob Porrington, the chief greenkeeper, said it had been difficult to get him back into shape without most of the 'old fashioned' methods.

Rob Porrington, the chief greenkeeper and one of the original course builders, said the course’s closure had been a blow to the town. It had been difficult to get him back into shape without most of the “old school” methods. “But people are eager to come back now. It will be wonderful to see people playing golf here again,” Porrington said.

At a time when headlines abound over Elon Musk and his paused bid to take over Twitter, a new The New York Times presents The documentary attempts to refocus attention on the ongoing saga of Musk’s self-driving technology ambitions for Tesla, and the safety questions that the company’s moves to realize that dream have raised.

Elon Musk’s crash coursethe latest installment in the FX series The New York Times presentsexamines the many claims the world’s richest man has made about Tesla’s self-driving technology since at least 2014, the reality of how the auto company’s technology has evolved over the years (cars are equipped with advanced driver assistance systems but are currently not able to drive on their own) and crashes involving Teslas and the company’s “Autopilot” feature.

Directed by veteran journalist Emma Schwartz, who previously worked for First linethe film features interviews with former staff members, a current Tesla beta tester, former Tesla executives and others to paint a picture of the company’s approach and intense focus of Musk on making self-driving vehicles.

During the film, some former employees express serious concerns about how Autopilot was originally developed at Tesla, as well as the company’s marketing and communications regarding its Autopilot and “fully driving” features. autonomous” (FSD). Other former leaders of top government agencies say manufacturers like Tesla need to tackle driver “complacency” when advanced driver assistance systems are in play. Still, Schwartz notes that she also met with sources “who still believe Tesla could lead the pack” on self-driving technology.

The film also explores how Tesla attracts and works with an engaged and dedicated fan base — “the company capitalizes on that interest, and that’s part of what’s interesting about it, really,” she says. (Elon Musk’s crash course notes that Musk did not respond to multiple interview requests; The Hollywood Reporter contacted Tesla for comment.)

The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Schwartz ahead of the premiere of Elon Musk’s crash course about how the filmmakers pieced together sources, surprising moments in the reporting process, and the “roller coaster” of Elon’s attempt to take over Twitter.

How did this documentary come about and how did you get involved in it?

I was working on the initial development for The New York Times presents, trying to flesh out the ideas we had. One of the questions was, can we watch Elon Musk? First I thought, well, okay, there was a biography, he’s in the news every day, what are we going to do, what can we say ? As I began to read and talk to people, [I] really started to take an interest in this effort to create a self-driving car. There were all kinds of questions about the security of the technology, whether the government had done enough and what were the basic facts: how safe is the technology? And none of those questions seemed like easy questions to answer, and as I started talking to more people, it became pretty clear that this was a project that Elon Musk was in very involved and that many key decisions fell to him. So it started to turn into a story that was about the person, but also about the business and security issues that had been bubbling for years.

How difficult did you find the process to get former Tesla employees and current Tesla owners to participate?

I would say that with any documentary, especially ones that deal with complex companies or stories or powerful people, finding or finding people willing to speak on camera is always a challenge. This has been a challenge in almost every project I can think of. This one was definitely harder I would say because you’re dealing with a company, you’re dealing with people with non-disclosure agreements, and you’re dealing with people who are afraid of the potential backlash of talking about a very individual powerful . But we did what any good journalist really does, which is to talk to as many people as possible. To be fair, not everyone had exactly the same point of view, which is part of what was interesting. There are people who still believe that Tesla could lead the pack. There are others who left because they had lost confidence in the way the mission was carried out. I think ultimately there were a number of years and a number of issues that some people thought it was time to talk about.

The documentary begins with the death of Joshua Brown, and it’s a story that the film returns to several times during the narrative. What was behind the decision to continue watching this tragedy?

Josh Brown’s accident was the first known fatal accident in the United States and it was the most publicly case studied, so it gave us the biggest window to understand what happened, who was at fault, and what may or may not be missing from Tesla’s response. It also gave us a character and a person to relate to, because Tesla is a company that’s built on a very large fan base and there are a lot of people who believe in the mission. There has been a major impact on what Tesla has done to embrace the idea of ​​electric vehicles. Part of how the story of Tesla and Autopilot has unfolded is that there are so many fans who want to be on the cutting edge of technology and are eager to try things out because it is exciting. The company is capitalizing on that interest, and that’s part of the interesting thing about it, really.

Were there any moments that particularly surprised you in your report?

There were a few things. One thing that sometimes people forget here is that Josh Brown’s family hasn’t spoken publicly since the accident, but they released a statement, which we have in the film. I found it interesting that after everything they’ve been through, they’re still hopeful that technology can advance. It’s not the answer that everyone has, and it was a surprising thing when I first looked into the question.

Another surprising moment for me was when I first came across the press conference that Elon Musk had a few months after Josh Brown’s accident, where he said that we had made changes to the system of driver monitoring, made warnings more frequent and we have this amazing, super-duper radar. Someone at the press conference asks, “OK, so if you had that radar, would it have saved Josh Brown’s life?” And Elon Musk replies: “I think so”. I mean, it can’t be 100%, but probably’ – it’s pretty close to what he said. It was surprising and really striking to me because I was reading this a few months after the company decided to drop the radar. So that was a clear flip-flop in what they were doing from a technology standpoint and I was like, okay so has technology changed or was that all or is that a whole message?

It started to raise questions for me about what was the strategy? I do not have the answer. There are people who support the company’s current decision and say [Tesla was] getting too many false positives and removing the radar will do [driving] safer. You see that from some of the YouTubers. And you talk to other people in the self-driving industry and they say, well, you always need different kinds of technologies because they all have pros and cons and it’s helpful to have a balance so that everything is safe. But making the different technologies work together is certainly not easy either. So those are the two sides of the situation.

The media has obviously focused on startups or tech companies that overpromise or make misleading claims in recent years. Do you think that in the recent past Tesla felt that extra scrutiny or did it escape it to some degree?

That’s an interesting question and it depends on who you ask the question in the Tesla universe, doesn’t it? Because there’s some truth to the fact that Tesla crashes get more attention than other cars. Not all accidents involving a Tesla necessarily involve Autopilot or other technology. So there are people who feel like Tesla is getting too much attention. On the other hand, when you look at the regulatory actions and what the government has done, yes, you have these investigations, but the government has not taken strong action. One of the challenges is that the government is saying, “We don’t have enough data. They are starting to collect data on crashes that occur with advanced driver assistance systems like Autopilot and FSD [Full Self-Driving] and supposed to publish the data at all times, [but] it’s been months of waiting.

So from that perspective, you could say, well, there have been all these accidents, but there have been no new government rules. NHTSA [the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration] did not follow NTSB recommendations [National Transportation Safety Board] which asked them to put more regulations on advanced driver assistance systems, so in some ways both are true. Essentially, you could say that Tesla is definitely getting more attention, but when it comes to whether the government has really been able to fend off the concerns raised by investigators, you haven’t seen it.

Given everything you know about Elon Musk and your work on this documentary, what do you think of Musk’s recent bid to take over Twitter?

Well, you know, it’s funny. There’s a part of the movie where we have a clip of Elon on the Joe Rogan show where he refers to how we should all get off social media, except he kept his Twitter down because he needs a way to disseminate information. At the time, I thought it was an interesting moment given everything he’s said on Twitter over the years. Watching this now, I don’t exactly have the right word, but I laugh a little: it feels like we knew something we didn’t actually know when we put it in the movie. But it certainly got a lot of attention and was a real rollercoaster like most of Elon’s other business adventures.

What do you hope viewers take away from your film?

There are a few things that I hope people take away. First, I hope people will better understand the promises and ways in which Elon Musk, one of the most powerful and wealthy business leaders of our time, operates. That in some ways, the story of the self-driving car effort is a microcosm. And two, I hope it helps people think more deeply about Silicon Valley and the technology and the promises that are sold to us all.

Like a walk in a garden, Erinn Springer guides us through black and white photography through intimate and familiar moments, as a way to portray the beauty of coping with life and death.

I remember my mother playing Für Elise on the basement piano. I remember several hot, monthly 4-H meetings. I remember my grandmother’s earth-colored caravan, my uncle’s big dogs and our horses thundering in the slanting afternoon sun…

It was my childhood and now, as I watch my niece and nephew, I begin to see their story, an iteration of the same story, but very different. Since their father died by suicide, these images have become a tale of loss and nostalgia unfolding through a land that will eventually win us all back. In these images, we witness both emotional and environmental transformation: the detritus of a life claimed by depression, the inevitable grip of age, and the discoveries of children who know nothing of death and spirituality other than the nature they explore. This family portrait has become my way of apprehending irreversible events, of accepting the notion of time and of trying to apprehend life through the beauty and death that are part of all living beings.

With a view of the Rocky Mountains to the west, Dominic Martinez always thought a disc golf course would be quite complementary to Westview Middle School.

Now, with the help of Longs Peak Disc Golf Club, his vision is becoming a reality.

Martinez is a middle school guidance counselor and the leader of a youth disc golf club, which he started this year. When he’s not teaching the craft to youngsters, he’s on the course with members of the Longs Peak Disc Golf Club.

With the help of the club, the new Wildcat Ridge disc golf course will soon be completed at the college.

To help the final pieces fall into place, the Longs Peak Disc Golf Club will host a fundraising round Saturday at the College, 1651 Airport Road. Check-in for the event is at 9:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 10:00 a.m.

Martinez and Amy Sindler, vice president of the Longs Peak Disc Golf Club, hope the fundraiser will raise around $1,500 to support the facility and necessary equipment for the course.

Wildcat Ridge will include 10 baskets, including one for training. The course goes around the school with the first basket located on the east side of the track and the last on the north side.

Besides the view, Sindler said the location of the course has other important advantages.

“This (course) will be pretty much exclusively for disc golf, so we won’t have to worry about passing cyclists or people on skateboards,” Sindler said. “It will just provide us with a sort of cleaner area to launch.”

Martinez hopes the course will give back to the youth, who initially connected him to the sport.

Martinez recalled how Sindler’s son, 14-year-old Westview student Alex Sindler, once had a record at school. Martinez asked him to play disc golf and that’s when he heard about the local club and soon after he got involved.

Westview principal Mark Spencer said he could see students using the disc golf course during lunch breaks or after school hours. It will also benefit those who live in Longmont, he said.

“Having a disc golf course here creates community access,” Spencer said. “Obviously a disc golf course is something that students will be able to use, but it’s also for our community. People in our community have an extra place to come and spend time together.

Work on the course has already begun, with the holes for the baskets being dug this week. Martinez said the goal is to open the course to the public in early June.

With a new course in place, Martinez said he is delighted with the excitement it will generate in the sport.

BALTIMORE, MD.—Forced to bypass the Kentucky Derby because of a minor but premature foot bruise, An Ojo’s The team believes the gelding will be ready to give his best in the Preakness Stakes (G1) at Pimlico Racecourse.

An Ojo ran around the Churchill Downs mile track twice on Monday morning under Clay Courville, an assistant to his father, Louisiana-based trainer Ricky Courville, while also serving as a practice rider, groom and hotwalker when their stable star is on the road.

” He is fine. He’s been training well, he’s been back on the track three times now,” said Clay Courville. “He is on the right track, he is moving forward. He wanted to gallop. I decided to give him another day of jogging and I will gallop him (Tuesday) morning. The foot looks good. It touches the ground well, travels well. We’ll gallop tomorrow and see how he goes.

The one-eyed Un Ojo was removed from the Derby the morning entries were taken, five days before the Churchill Downs Classic.

“It was tough,” Clay Courville said. “It was difficult to do, but it was the right thing for the horse. If all goes well, we will be on the Preakness. He has to work on Saturday morning. We will see how he is after that and decide what to do.

Un Ojo’s Pre-Derby Works (no other works have been listed on Equibase)

Track Date Course Distance Weather To note Rank
Churchill Falls 04/30/2022 Dirt 4F 47.60 Broken 14/133
Churchill Falls 04/23/2022 Dirt 5F 59.40 Broken 2/70
The Copper Crowne Training Center 04/16/2022 Dirt 5F 1:03.15 Broken 2/8
Oaklawn Park 03/26/2022 Dirt 4F 48.80 Broken 94/21
The Copper Crowne Training Center 03/19/2022 Dirt 5F 1:03.00 Broken 1/6

Courville said his father had never raced at Pimlico, but came to Old Hilltop when coach Eric Guillot asked him to help with Laoban, the father of Un Ojo, who finished sixth of Preakness 2016.

“I was working for my dad when Mr. Eric called me and gave me the opportunity to travel and ride with him and ride for the Preakness,” he said. “I took advantage of it and went. It was just cool to be up there and experience new things as a young kid.

Clay Courville, now 25, can relish Rich Strike’s victory in the Kentucky Derby at odds of 80 to 1 after taking to the field literally at the last minute to carry the ‘little guy’ banner. Rich Strike is just the second graduated stakes winner for trainer Eric Reed, in a career that began in 1985 and includes 1,445 wins through Sunday. Un Ojo won the $1 million Rebel Stakes (G2) from Oaklawn Park 75-1 to give Ricky Courville his first tier score.

“I was extremely happy with their relationship,” Clay Courville said of Team Rich Strike. “I think people like that deserve it, people who work hard and don’t have a lot of horses like that, like most people don’t. They take pride in their work and I like to see people like them win.

Still, Clay Courville acknowledged of the Derby: “It kind of sucked watching it, because I was like, ‘Man, that’s perfect for our type of horse: the fast pace and all the close-ups happened while running.’ We never know.”

What’s faster than a Nikon Z9?

It’s been a few weeks since Lexar announced the world’s fastest CFexpress Type B and Type A cards. But not to be outdone, arch-rival Delkin Devices claims impressive speeds for its recently updated Black-series CFexpress Type B cards. Where Lexar grabbed the headlines with outright speed claims, Delkin promotes the minimum sustained write speed of the latest Black-series cards – arguably a more relevant performance metric in real-world use.

Delkin claims that black cards can write data faster than Nikon Z9’s own frame buffer. Usually, the camera buffer fills up after 79 frames have been taken, which slows down burst shooting as the memory card becomes a bottleneck for writing data. This is not the case with the new Delkin Black cards (supposedly), as Delkin claims that a Black card can write lossless Raw photos without ever touching the Z9’s 79 shot buffer, and does not will stop only when the card is full. For a 325GB card, this equates to 6,661 photos, each with a file size of 55.1MB, recorded continuously. Awesome stuff.

According to Delkin, “the camera buffer was never completely filled during testing, resulting in no stoppages or delays.” As for video write speed, Delkin claims that a Z9 loaded with a new Black-series card can record 10 minutes of 8K RAW 12-bit 6:1 (7,680 x 4,320) compression footage at 60 frames per second.

This all translates into a minimum sustained write speed of 1530MB/s, far exceeding the VPG400 (Video Performance Guarantee) 400MB/s Compact Flash Association rating given to some rival CFexpress cards, and making the cards the most fast in this regard. For context, ProGrade Digital’s high-end CFexpress Type B 1700 Cobalt memory card has a minimum sustained write speed of 1400MB/s, while Angelbird’s PRO CFexpress MK2 Type B AV card can only deliver ” » 1300 MB/s sustained.

Capacities of the new Black Series cards include 75GB, 150GB, 325GB, 512GB and 650GB versions, although the 75GB version is only rated for a minimum sustained write speed of 1240MB/s .
