3D TV is officially dead

http://www.businessinsider.com.au/3d-tv-is-dead-2017-1?r=US&IR=T

1- Not enough content. DirecTV and ESPN stopped broadcasting their 3D channels in 2012 and 2013.

2- The glasses needed for 3D were clunky and annoying, and they made people feel self-conscious while wearing them.

3- 3D TVs were and are perfectly good 2D TVs, so 3D features weren’t often used.

4- 3D movies were closely associated with Blu-ray Discs as movie streaming started to gain traction.

5- 3D TVs need careful calibration and can cause eye strain.

6- Maybe it was always a gimmick. Ask yourself: Have 3D effects ever really impressed you or affected your viewing experience?

These are the basic lighting techniques you need to know for photography and film

http://www.diyphotography.net/basic-lighting-techniques-need-know-photography-film/

Amongst the basic techniques, there’s…

1- Side lighting – Literally how it sounds, lighting a subject from the side when they’re faced toward you

2- Rembrandt lighting – Here the light is at around 45 degrees over from the front of the subject, raised and pointing down at 45 degrees

3- Back lighting – Again, how it sounds, lighting a subject from behind. This can help to add drama with silouettes

4- Rim lighting – This produces a light glowing outline around your subject

5- Key light – The main light source, and it’s not necessarily always the brightest light source

6- Fill light – This is used to fill in the shadows and provide detail that would otherwise be blackness

7- Cross lighting – Using two lights placed opposite from each other to light two subjects

5 tips for creating perfect cinematic lighting and making your work look stunning

Prove me wrong. But. Cannot prove a negative! The argument from ignorance.

onions-in-space-650x1020

The argument from ignorance (or argumentum ad ignorantiam and negative proof) is a logical fallacy that claims the truth of a premise is based on the fact that it has not (yet) been proven false, or that a premise is false because it has not (yet) been proven true.

It is a common human’s logic fallacy, which simply states:
i dont know what that is… in which case it must be this or that…

It is often used as an attempt to shift the burden of proof onto the skeptic rather than the proponent of the idea. But the burden of proof must always be on the individual proposing existence, not the one questioning existence.

Ignorance is ignorance; no right to believe anything can be derived from it. In other matters no sensible person will behave so irresponsibly or rest content with such feeble grounds for his opinions and for the line he takes.

A common retort to a negative proof is to reference the existence of the Invisible Pink Unicorn or the Flying Spaghetti Monster as just as valid as the proposed entity of the debate. This is similar to reductio ad absurdum, that taking negative proof as legitimate means that one can prove practically anything, regardless of how absurd.

A religious apologist using the argument from ignorance would state something like, “the existence of God is true because there is no proof that the existence of God is false”. But a counter-apologist can use that same “argument” to state, “the nonexistence of God is true because there is no proof that the nonexistence of God is false”. This immediately demonstrates how absurd the argument from ignorance is by turning the tables on those who use this “argument” fallacy, like some religious apologists.

Mind games

If you have a song stuck in your head that you can’t seem to get out, think of the end of the song and it should go away. This is due to something called the Zeigarnik effect, which is basically your mind having a problem with things left unfinished.

If you want to get your child to do something, say, drink milk, do what Tigerlily1510 says: “Ask your son if he wants milk and he’ll say no, but ask him if he wants milk in a blue cup or a red cup and he’ll choose a colour and drink his milk! Magic!”

Use silence to your advantage when negotiating. People have a natural tendency to be uncomfortable with silence, and will often do whatever it takes to break it. Just be patient.

When you tell a joke in a big group of people, the person who you turn to look at first is the person you’re closest to.

Do this to someone: Tell them to look into your eyes and say they can’t stop looking. Ask them what they had for lunch three days ago and chances are they won’t be able to answer. It’s very hard to remember something without moving your eyes.

Whispering something to someone almost guarantees that they’ll whisper back.

When trying to find something, look right to left instead of left to right. You’re more likely to miss things because your eyes are used to looking one way.

If you want someone to believe a totally untrue story, repeat it three separate times adding details each time. For example: “You can say to someone ‘remember that time at school, when Mr Smith accidentally ran over the math teacher in the teacher’s car park?’ The first time they won’t and will question you, but then repeat the same thing later with a couple of details thrown in and the third time you mention it, they will remember it happening.”

If you want someone to believe your lie, add an embarrassing detail about yourself. For example: “Instead of saying, “No I wasn’t at Jimson James’ house. I was with Randy the whole time.” Try saying, “No I haven’t been to Jimsons’ in a while. I clogged his toilet so I don’t think his parents want me over there for a while… so me and Randy hung out.”

Nodding your head while asking a question makes the other person more likely to agree with you.

When arguing with someone, act much calmer than them. This can cause them to say something particularly irrational which you can use against them.

Let’s say you’re carrying something you don’t want to be carrying. Easy fix, just follow rarabara’s advice: “If you want to get get rid of an object, for example walking with a friend after you bought a 2l coke bottle and want him to carry it, just keep talking to him while handing him the bottle, most of the times people will just take the object automatically without thinking.”

Here’s how to win rock, paper, scissors every time: “Right before you are about to count (or interrupt the count) catch the person off-guard with a personal question, or something directed at them. Then immediately after just resume the count like nothing happened. Most of the time the person will throw scissors as a sort of automatic defensive mechanism.”

In this photo are three structural nodes, intended to hold cables above a road in The Hague.

The difference is the node on the far left was designed by a human, and on the far right by a computer.

More importantly, the node on the far right supports the same weight, but weighs 75% less and is 50% smaller.

It makes you think where design and aesthetics will shift toward, in a future where computers design our world.
