Raw Photo Processor (RPP)
A Raw converter for Mac OS X (10.4-10.10), supporting almost all available digital Raw formats made for photographers by a photographer-software engineer with unmeasurable amount of help and tutoring from my friend, professional photographer Iliah Borg. We just got fed up with those converters made by programmers for their upper management :)


Think of RPP as a development machine in terms of film photography - first you have to develop your roll right, then do whatever you want with it. So this is NOT a full featured photo processing package, you may need Photoshop or some other tool to apply sharpness, cropping and so on. RPP is easy to integrate with other tool though, f.e. it has Adobe Lightroom version 2, 3, 4 and 5 plugin and can work directly with Photoshop.

Галина Арапова: «Ужесточение законодательства в сфере СМИ — это катастрофа» / Интервью / Новости / 36on.ru Воронежский городской портал
«В рамках медиафорума для журналистов, который прошёл в Воронеже, состоялся семинар директора «Центра защиты прав СМИ», практикующего медиаюриста Галины Араповой. Тема разговора касалась не только изменения работы журналистов в связи с ужесточением законодательства в области массмедиа, но и в целом новым правовым рискам общения в соцсетях. Мы публикуем основные тезисы выступления медиаюриста, которые будут интересны всем тем, кто хоть раз опубликовал пост в соцсети. Из текста вы узнаете, что теперь за призыв вернуть Крым можно получить 5 лет, материться в СМИ безопасно можно только на иностранном языке, за распространение неточной или порочащей информации — требуют удалять материал с сайта или уничтожать тираж газеты без какой-либо компенсации, а за отрицание или искажения сути патриотизма ваш сайт предлагают блокировать.»

ProductTank: What do UX people want from Product Managers? - MindTheProduct
At the last ProductTank event, Jesmond Allen, UX director at cxpartners, spoke about what UX people want from PMs and they can best work together.

Having had experience in both roles, she outlined the difference in job descriptions, pointing out that, in fact, the two roles were more alike than not. She identified this overlap as an opportunity for the two roles to help each other out, but highlighted the risk of treading on each other’s toes.

The Rise of Men Who Don’t Work – and What They Do Instead - NYTimes.com
At every age, the chances of not working have changed in the last 15 years. Teenagers are far more likely not to work. Older people are retiring later and working more. In the ages in between — the periods of life when most people work — the changes have been smaller, but they are still substantial.

In the late 1960s, almost all men between the ages of 25 and 54 went to work. Only about 5 out of every 100 did not have a job in any given week. By 2000, this figure had more than doubled, to 11 out of every 100 men. This year, it’s 16. (People in the military, prison and institutions are excluded from these figures.)

Welcome — Write the Docs 1.0 documentation
“Write the Docs is a place where the art and science of documentation can be practiced and appreciated. There are a lot of people out there who write docs, but there isn’t a good place to go to find information, ask questions, and generally be a member of a community of documentarians. We hope to slowly solve this problem by building a place with high quality information about the art of writing documentation. Along with that, we hope to open communication between all the awesome people out there writing documentation.”

Как Мексика победила нефтяное проклятие с помощью бюрократии
«В результате этих национальных комплексов мексиканский частный капитал после реформ потек во все отрасли, кроме нефтяной. В 90-х к национальному частному капиталу активно присоединился иностранный, потому что Мексика заключила соглашение о создании зоны свободной торговли с США и Канадой (NAFTA). Но иностранцев к нефти тоже не подпустили. И пока вся остальная мексиканская экономика активно модернизировалась, нефтегазовая отрасль оставалась в ленивых и артритных руках древней госмонополии Pemex.»

Dan Grover | Chinese Mobile App UI Trends
“This summer, I packed up all my things and moved from San Francisco to Guangzhou, China for work. Through an unlikely chain of coincidences that I don’t entirely recall, I’ve become a product manager on WeChat, a popular messaging app in China.

Moving to a new country has meant learning how to do lots of things differently: speaking a new language, eating, shopping, getting around. In a few months, I’m surprised at how acclimated I’ve become to what, at first, seemed such an overwhelmingly alien place.

This has applied to my digital life too. I’ve replaced all my apps with those used here, owning both to my keen interest as someone in the tech industry, and to “go native” to the extent I can. Since then, I’ve similarly become blind to the adaptations required there, too.

One day, for the fun of it, I started writing a list in my notebook of all the things that are different between apps here and those I’m accustomed to using and creating back in the US. When I finished, I was surprised by how long the list was, so it seemed fitting to flesh it out into a post.”

Обмен валюты на бирже - просто и выгодно
«Сегодня я хочу поделиться достаточно простым способом, который позволит существенно сократить ваши личные расходы по обмену валюты. Мне часто приходится ездить в поездки за границу по бизнесу, поэтому с обменом сталкиваюсь очень часто. Раньше этот вопрос решался либо в ближайшем обменнике, либо в банке. Все бы хорошо, вот только смущала разница между курсом покупки и продажи. Но другого выхода не было, кроме как искать по банкам лучший курс.
Но времена меняются и мало кто знает, что относительно недавно появилась возможность совершать обменные операции на межбанковской валютной бирже (ММВБ) любому физическом лицу. Процедура простая и не требует каких-либо профильных знаний финансовых рынков.
Далее мы рассмотрим полный алгоритм действий, как вы можете менять валюту, обходя банковские котировки (про обменники вообще молчу). Сразу хочу предупредить, что рассматриваемая операция никак не связана со спекуляцией, поэтому рисков никаких не несет.»

Семья: Юлия Навальная — Сильный пол — Журнал «Афиша»

***

— Алексей в последних интервью не раз и не два говорил: «Мы все в конечном счете хотим, чтобы Россия стала нормальным европейским государством». В нынешнем контексте это выглядит очень важным заявлением.

— Я даже не понимаю, почему это важное заявление. А какой вариант другой? Не существует никакого особого пути, Россия — это часть европейской цивили­зации. А дальше я развивать эту тему не буду, потому что в такие моменты все обычно считают, что я просто дословно воспроизвожу его слова. Вот его слова, к сожалению, почему-то никто не воспринимает как мои!
