Nytimes.com: Simple Rules for Healthy Eating
Over the past few months, I’ve written a number of times on how nutrition recommendations are seldom supported by science. I’ve argued that what many people are telling you may be inaccurate. In response, many of you have asked me what nutrition recommendations should say. It’s much easier, unfortunately, to tell you what not to do. But here at The Upshot, we don’t avoid the hard questions. So I’m going to put myself on the line. Below are the general rules I live by. They’re the ones I share with patients, with friends and with family. They’re the ones I support as a pediatrician and a health services researcher. But I acknowledge up front that they may apply only to healthy people without metabolic disorders (me, for instance, as far as I know).

Vsco.co: VSCO Film™ x Nordica Photography
of you meet and decide to start a business together?

We met in 2006 at business school in Umeå (northern Sweden) while taking a masters program in marketing and entrepreneurship. Photography was not on our radar at that time, and as we were slinging pints and studying for business exams, we would have laughed at the thought of running a wedding photography business a few years down the road.

If a user attempts to copy the text with keyboard shortcuts, ei ctrl+c or command+c, an 800ms timer gets set that will override the user's clipboard with malicious code.

echo "not evil"
Will be replaced with
echo "evil"\n

Note the newline character gets appended to the end of the line. When a user goes to paste the echo command into their terminal, "evil" will automatically get echoed to the screen without giving the user a chance to review the command before it excecutes. More sophisticated payloads that hide themselves can also be used, such as something demoed here and seen below.

Youtube.com: A Conversation with Geert Lovink about Social Media
In 2011, Geert Lovink published the book Networks Without a Cause - a Critique of Social Media, in which he criticises the paths taken by teh so-called Web 2.0. Four years later, he says that nothing has changed and new explorations in design and archtecture of social networks are necessary. He says that the revelations made by Edward Snowden, in 2013, made it even more urgent to imagine new archtectures for the internet. He believes that, through the power of individuals and technology, that goal may still be achieved. Produced by Rogerio Simoes, for the MA in Social Media, University of Westminster. Module: Critical Theory of Social Media and the Internet, Professor Christian Fuchs.

Q & A on alternative social networking services with Geert Lovink
Q: Why are you critical of the regular social network sites (SNS)?
A: Because I am part of a generation that fought for decentralized networks, an open internet in which the user wasn’t just a consumer of some product. Developments of the past ten or so years have meant that regular social media users have traded a lot of the earlier complexities and freedom against simplicity and speed.

I was an arcade-oriented teenager in the mid to late nineties. I recently had an absolute blast at Logan Arcade here in Chicago which reminded me just how much fun arcade games can be, particularly alongside great beers. It took several weeks but I've finally completed my home arcade; it's already quite a hit with select friends and relations.

Polity.co.uk: Geert Lovink - Social Media Abyss: Critical Internet Cultures and the Force of Negation
Social Media Abyss plunges into the paradoxical condition of the new digital normal versus a lived state of emergency. There is a heightened, post-Snowden awareness Ð we know we are under surveillance but we click, share, rank and remix with a perverse indifference to technologies of capture and cultures of fear. Despite the incursion into privacy by companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon, social media use continues to be a daily habit with shrinking gadgets now an integral part of our busy lives. We are thrown between addiction anxiety and subliminal, obsessive use. Where does art, culture and criticism venture when the digital vanishes into the background?

Conscientious Photography Magazine — Into the Forest (part 1)
Robert Frank gave us his vision of the United States with The Americans. Before, Walker Evans had done the same (American Photographs). William Eggleston‘s The Democratic Forest, in its Steidl 2015 incarnation, is another one. A set of ten volumes of photographs, with a total of well over 1,000 pages, Forest is all that The Americans is not: it is garish, gratuitous, and bursting with unordered life, much like the country itself. But it is also follow Frank’s book, being unapologetic and over the top in a way that seems necessary and not merely self-indulgent.

Conscientious Photography Magazine — A Renewed Case for Blogging
A recent article about planned changes to how Instagram is going to operate made me think about photography online, and about blogs. I’m not sure people will agree, but it seems to me that the boom-and-bust culture that Silicon Valley has created is becoming more and more of a detriment to photography on the net. New sites and/or tools are constantly being introduced as being “game changers” that everybody has to follow lest they want to be left behind (or whatever other overblown marketing speak is being used). These sites/tools are then “updated” regularly, to eventually lose every ounce of what might have made them good in the first place. Then cue the usual articles about how the very site/tool that just a few months ago was so indispensable is “over,” but there is that new site/tool that everybody ought to be looking at. And then go back to the beginning of the cycle.

How Your Gut Affects Your Mood
At any given moment, you have somewhere between 10 trillion and 100 trillion microorganisms inhabiting your gut — that’s more microbes in your bowels than there are cells in your body. If that isn’t impressive enough, consider that collectively these microbes have about 150 times as many genes as your own genome. Scientists are still trying to figure out exactly which microbes make up the human microbiome, but it’s estimated to contain more than 1,000 species and 7,000 distinct strains of bacteria. Your gut is never alone.

Expressen.se: Terapeuten erkänner: Det är hokus-pokus
Jag äter all slags mat. Och har inga dolda matallergier. Trodde jag. När jag gick till näringsterapeuten Ulrika Sunnerheim-Dahlman gav hon mig en lång rad nya diagnoser. Enligt hennes tester tål jag varken mjölk, gluten, ägg, jäst eller havre. Hon ordinerar strikt diet och åtta olika kosttillskott. Men terapeutens diagnoser är ren bluff, säger professor Magnus Borres som forskar om matallergier. – Det här är farligt humbug som kan ställa till med skada.

EOS 6D: the dynamic range at low ISO
1. Fractional ISO (125-250-500) are slightly worse noise characteristics than the "whole". Switching in 1 / 3EV on the camera can be turned off and never turn on.
2. This test method is practically no distinction between ISO100 and ISO200. Yes, and pictures (with the same underexposure) almost identical. Those. other things being equal - no matter what to use. But if you pull out of underexposure, the ISO200 looks better (ie ISO100-3EV looks worse ISO200-2EV).
3. ISO800 ISO400 microscopically worse for fine detail and virtually indistinguishable on the major. ISO800 should be considered fully operational, no questions asked.
4. For some 400-800-1600-3200-6400-12800-H1-H2 study should continue. Out of interest.

Official Google Blog — An eye for detail: Zoom through 1,000 artworks thanks to the new Art Camera from the Google Cultural Institute
The Art Camera is a robotic camera, custom-built to create gigapixel images faster and more easily. A robotic system steers the camera automatically from detail to detail, taking hundreds of high resolution close-ups of the painting. To make sure the focus is right on each brush stroke, it’s equipped with a laser and a sonar that—much like a bat—uses high frequency sound to measure the distance of the artwork. Once each detail is captured, our software takes the thousands of close-up shots and, like a jigsaw, stitches the pieces together into one single image.

Bloomberg.com: Twitter to Stop Counting Photos and Links in 140-Character Limit
Twitter Inc. is making a major shift in how it counts characters in Tweets, giving users more freedom to compose longer messages. The social media company will soon stop counting photos and links as part of its 140-character limit for messages, according to a person familiar with the matter. The change could happen in the next two weeks, said the person who asked not to be named because the decision isn’t yet public. Links currently take up 23 characters, even after Twitter automatically shortens them. The company declined to comment.

Fotosidan.se: Canon 6D - Sidan 18
Kameran kommer att välja en längre slutartid i fallet du nämner. Skulle du köra i Tv-läget skulle kameran välja en så stor bländare som möjligt. En variant är i stället att köra i manuellt läge och då ställa in längsta slutartid man kan tänka sig och den bländare man vill ha och bara låta auto iso fixa korrekt exponering. Skulle auto ison "slå i taket", dvs kräva högre iso än 25600 så kommer kameran välja att underexponera bilden.

Vid gatufoto i svartvitt tycker jag manuellt läge är det bästa. Då kan man t.ex. ställa in slutartiden på 1/250 s, bländaren på 16 och iso på auto. Då vet man att man med ett vidvinkel- eller normalobjektiv för det mesta kommer att få skarpa bilder, skärpedjupet kommer att vara bra och exponeringen kommer att bli "rätt". Så det är då bara att fotografera på och vara koncentrerad på bildskapande i stället för att fippla med kamerainställningar.

Ska man ta ett porträtt och vill ha lite kortare skärpedjup är det bara att öppna upp bländaren så mycker man nu känner för. I och med att bländaren öppnas upp mer så sänks isotalet, vilket kan vara rätt trevligt i porträttsammanhang. Ändras ljuset så pass mycket att exponeringsmätaren indikerar underexponering så får man förstås börja laborera med slutartid och bländare för att få till en korrekt exponering.

6D Sync speed only 1/180s?
The 5DIII is 6 fps, 1/200 s X-sync, and 150K durability. The fact that the 6D only goes to 4.5 fps (despite the same Digic5+ with fewer MP to process), and the reduced 100K durability, rather strongly suggest that the slower X-sync is a direct result of the slower, cheaper shutter - a physical limitation. So...you can leave me out of 'we all'.

Techradar.com: Canon 6D review: Noise and dynamic range
This chart indicates that TIFF images (after conversion from raw) from the Canon EOS 6D have a similar level of dynamic range as the JPEG images. The 6D starts out producing less dynamic range than the Nikon D600 and Canon EOS 5D Mk III, but a greater range than the Canon EOS 7D and Sony Alpha a77. But by ISO 400 it is the second best performer behind the Nikon, and at higher ISOs it takes the lead by a significant margin.

Bobatkinks.com: Bob Atkins on 6D dynamic range
The DxOMark scores for Landscape DR are based on low ISO settings. Nobody shoots landscapes at ISO 1600 and up, so their "single number" ratings don't tell the whole story. However they do show about a 2EV advantage to Nikon in the low ISO range, similar to what I saw comparing the 5D MkIII with the D800.

I've been shooting with an EOS 6D for the last few weeks. I like it. So far I haven't found any real issues with either the image noise, image quality or even the relatively simple AF system. In fact the AF system (center zone) works in extremely low light. Seems like an excellent buy if you want a FF body for under $2000. The GPS and WiFi are fun to play with too

Best deal on the 6D right now looks like $1999 from ADORAMA with a 2% credit ($40) and around $90 of "free" goodies thown in.

Canon 6D Hands On Review
Several weeks ago I wrote a post previewing the Canon EOS 6D, based on its specs and information available at its announcement. I’ve now had some hands-on time and have done significant research on the camera and its functions and features as I work on my latest e-book camera guide Canon 6D Experience. So now I am able to share some more insight into the body, controls, features, and handling of this very nice new full frame dSLR camera. And thanks to Newtonville Camera of Newton, Mass. for getting it into my hands so quickly!

Dpreview.com: Re: 6D- OUTER POINTS Autofocus Info
So far I have found the 6D outer points to be very responsive and accurate, even in very low light and night-time use, and definitely no issues in daytime use. I linked to my "6D Hands On"post at another forum thread, so it may be old news for some, but I have an example image that applies here - scroll down until you see the cat photos. It's not a controlled test, but from the exposure settings you can see that it was taken in very low light, and I had no problem achieving immediate focus when I aimed at the area of slight contrast over the eye:


I did however have trouble focusing when I aimed at an all dark area (with the outer AF point). In the same situation, previously, the 5DIII was able to lock on even on the dark area.

I haven't used a 5DII in a while, but I seem to recall it has some issues with focusing in low light.

Recommended Canon 6D Settings
Unfortunately, unlike Nikon, Canon does not allow for automatic “faster” or “slower” compensations and you are limited to 1/250 shutter speed maximum. This is a deal breaker for sports and wildlife photographers, because they have no options for fast shutter speeds like 1/2000.
