Nofilmschool.com: Sigma 18-35 F/1.8 Looks to Be One of the Best 'Budget' Filmmaking Lenses Ever Made
Sigma 18-35We’ve talked about Sigma’s new 18-35mm f/1.8 several times before here at nofilmschool. Since it was announced back at NAB in April, the lens has generated quite a bit of buzz (especially when the $800 price was revealed). Now that the 18-35 has been shipping for upwards of a month, and the community has had ample opportunity to test and review the lens, it seems clear that Sigma has hit a grand slam, especially for videographers and low-budget filmmakers. Check out some of the stellar reviews and footage from the 18-35 below.

Sciencedaily.com: Total darkness at night key to success of breast cancer therapy, study shows
Exposure to light at night, which shuts off nighttime production of the hormone melatonin, renders breast cancer completely resistant to tamoxifen, a widely used breast cancer drug, says a new study. Melatonin by itself delayed the formation of tumors and significantly slowed their growth, researchers report, but tamoxifen caused a dramatic regression of tumors in animals with either high nighttime levels of melatonin during complete darkness or those receiving melatonin supplementation during dim light at night exposure.

Android Run Time: An Easy Hack To Make Your Phone Faster And Its Battery Last Longer
Dalvik uses the ‘Just-in-time’ (JIT) process which means it has to transform app source code into an executable program every time it starts. That’s right, Android apps have to run through a conversion each time they are started. By contrast ART uses the ‘Ahead-of-time’ (AOT) process and this compiles (aka does the conversion) when an app is installed. Using this method apps can launch up to twice as quickly which will have a dramatic effect on the sense of speed of your phone.

Svd.se: Höjda lokalhyror dränerar Södermalm på alternativkultur
Efter 11 år stänger caféet Copacabana ned sin verksamhet vid Hornstull. Ägarna satsar på syskoncaféet Whakapapa i Gröndal och de gamla lokalerna övertas av Bio Rio. På Södermalm har stigande lokalhyror och bostadsrättsföreningar som vill ha det tyst och fräscht och inte samtycker till utskänkningstillstånd näringsdränerat den jord där alternativa och subkulturella mötesplatser förut kunde gro.

De senaste tre åren har Hallongrottan, café Sodom och Högkvarteret bommat igen. Stadens inre delar tillhör nu barnfamiljerna, reklamfirmorna och löparkropparna. Där är kreativitet numera synonymt med att komma på en lösning på kundens kommunikationsuppdrag. En fredagsnatt på Söder för tio år sedan kunde man promenera ned till hamnen och dansa i en fabrikslokal tills solen gick upp.

I dag måste man stå i kö i två timmar, betala 170 kronor och se städad ut om man vill dansa. På klubben Trädgården såg jag nyligen Socialstyrelsens rekommendationer sitta uppklistrade på väggarna. Jag sjunker ned på café Coffice vid Medis. "Ett arbetsdedikerat kafé". Här blir inga romaner skrivna.

Theverge.com: Google will stop calling games 'free' when they offer in-app purchases
Google has agreed to add protections around games' in-app purchases to ensure that children won't rack up unwanted charges on their parents' credit cards. The changes come at the request of the European Commission, which has been investigating the ongoing issue of unwanted in-app purchases and is today laying out a series of guidelines that it would like developers and app stores to comply with. Google has said that by the end of September, it will cease to advertise games as "free" when they include in-app purchases and that it will also require payment verification before each purchase. It's unclear if these changes will be exclusive to Europe, however.

When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names.

TRANS SARBAGITA, a Glimmering Light of Hope
Bali is very well-known even more than Indonesia itself. Some people would ask where Indonesia is though they had been to Bali before. Being the number one tourist destination in the country, Bali offers not only incredible beauty of its nature but also unique Hindu culture. Bali is visited by almost two millions people from abroad every year. However, if we are talking about the public transportation, Bali is inferior. For instance, there's no airport buses here unlike in other Indonesian cities. Most locals and tourists choose to use private vehicles causing the problem of inconvenient traffics everyday.

Business Insider — This Chart Explains Every Culture In The World
Political scientists Ronald Inglehart of the University of Michigan and Christian Welzel of Luephana University in Germany put forth their best effort by analyzing data and plotting countries on a “culture map.” Their system stems from the World Values Survey (WVS), the largest”non-commercial, cross-national, time series investigation of human beliefs and values ever executed,” which dates back to 1981 and includes nearly 400,000 respondents from 100 countries.

The Blocking of Vimeo in Indonesia
The Citizen Lab has been conducting research on Internet censorship and surveillance in Indonesia since 2010. Indonesia is a country of interest because there is an absence of standardized laws and regulations that systematically regulate content-control practices and a lack of transparency and independent oversight over the government-mandated censorship regime, which means an increased risk for infringing on fundamental rights. Indeed, the country’s Ministry of Communications and Information (MICT) has been criticized for the opaque nature of its censorship regime in general, and the recent wholesale ban of video-sharing site Vimeo in particular. The practice of wholesale blocking of websites like Vimeo, a video sharing site which is known for its high-quality and high-definition videos, could do more harm than good to the economy in the long run as the country’s e-commerce market is growing rapidly and an increasing number of businesses are promoting themselves online. In order for the Internet to continue to be a key enabler of economic growth,  the information controls framework must be consistent, greatly simplified, and harmonized to make it less burdensome and more transparent for business.

News.ycombinator.com: rodedwards on Cinnamon can reverse changes in the brains of mice with Parkinsons
Because it's clear there isn't a lot of expertise in this thread, I'd like to make clear that nobody should be doing the cinnamon challenge based on these results, or the results of the authors' previous study on the topic. So far, the authors have some interesting data from cell lines and now a mouse model of PD. Specifically, the mouse model is generated by chemical intoxication with a molecule called MPTP, which results in damage to dopaminergic cells in the substantia nigra, the region of the brain whose degeneration is predominantly implicated in the etiology of PD. There is good reason to be skeptical about whether this animal model of the disease is clinically relevant to sporadic PD seen in patients. Furthermore, dramatic results seen in a very obscure journal (i.e. not a mainline journal for neurodegenerative research) should generally result in knee-jerk skepticism until others repeat the work and a more significant review process has taken place. It should go without saying that there have been many compounds in the past two decades to show some interesting results at a preclinical stage that have not passed muster when moving to real patients.

Yahoo Labs — One Hundred Million Creative Commons Flickr Images for Research
Today the photograph has transformed again. From the old world of unprocessed rolls of C-41 sitting in a fridge 20 years ago to sharing photos on the 1.5” screen of a point and shoot camera 10 years back. Today the photograph is something different. Photos automatically leave their capture (and formerly captive) devices to many sharing services. There are a lot of photos. A back of the envelope estimation reports 10% of all photos in the world were taken in the last 12 months, and that was calculated three years ago. And of these services, Flickr has been a great repository of images that are free to share via Creative Commons. [ https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=7989067 ]

Having never developed a single roll of film in my life I really only started taking photos in 2011, after a decade or so of pointing and shooting with simple digital cameras, but today photography is almost the only thing I can think about creatively.
