    A Texas appeals court has ruled that the University of Houston does not have to pay the photographer of a picture it has been using in online and print promotional materials.

The case surrounds an aerial image Olive shot from a helicopter hired specifically for making pictures for his library. In an...

    A celebrated book and a major museum exhibition revealed the harrowing tale behind the image of a wounded Marine. Their version was wrong. ============================================================== The fighting in Hue City, Vietnam, was as intense and confusing as anything the Marines there had ever seen. It was mid-February 1968, and American and South Vietnamese forces were desperately trying to counter a surprise onslaught that became known as the Tet offensive. First Battalion, Fifth Marines had breached the cityís historic Citadel. Radio communications were out. From front-line positions, Marines ran back a block or two to give updates to commanding officers and to...

    A new set of images showing the New Horizons spacecraft departing from Ultima Thule following its New Yearís Day closest approach reveals the Kuiper Belt Object (KBO) is shaped less like a snowman and more like a flat object, with one lobe looking like a pancake and the other like a dented walnut. Initial images returned immediately after the flyby suggested the double-lobed object was composed of two nearly-spherical lobes, one larger than the other. Their apparent nearly round shapes were not due to the lobes being rounded by their own gravity, as both are far too small to attain...

    Tumblr announced this week it will ban content featuring nudity from its platform, starting December 17. The decision was met with lots of backlash from users who view the site as a safe space to explore their identity and sexuality through not safe for work (NSFW) content. Many Tumblr users have said they plan to abandon the platform for alternative blogging websites that allow explicit content, some which can be found below. Tumblr says it's banning "adult content" from its platform in order to make "a better, more positive" place, but the policy change has some users abandoning the site....

  • vanity - Is the current photo of Christine Blasey Ford Current?

    09/18/2018 4:54:26 PM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 75 replies
    Folks, is that photo we see posted of Christine Blasey Ford current or not so current. Thus far, I have only witnessed two photos of Ms. Ford, one, when she a young teenage lady and one taken when it appears she was a bit older. The other day, when I googled her Facebook page to see what she looked like, asking to see images of her, a sight flashed up on screen and then immediately disappeared. I tried a few times to re-enter my inquiry with no luck. For some reason, IMHO, I am beginning to believe that forces out...
  • BHA Adds Result Verification Procedure (UK Photo Finish Result Overturned)

    07/09/2018 3:21:25 PM PDT · by ml/nj · 8 replies
    The British Horseracing Authority has instituted an additional results verification procedure after a wrong result was posted at Kempton in March. In that instance, an official result was later reversed after a photo finish was more closely examined and the result found to be incorrect. The process, which has been trialled extensively since March, means that an additional line of verification is now in place before the Ďweighed iní signal is given, whereby the stipendiary stewards on duty are required to verify the finishing order of the winning and placed horses. Should there be a query, a signal is given...

    Watching the events on TV, important ones involving dignitaries posing for cameras and dimwits journalists, gets really annoying. Cameras are clicking away, like machine guns, obscuring important words from presidents, kings, queens. Esteemed photojournalists: today we have mirrorless super cameras and phone cameras that do not click - "shoot" - make stupid annoying clicky noise. They are SILENT, no need to make a racket. Please disable the clicking or get camera that doesn't click when you "fire". Modern cameras are silent when taking photo or video!!! This should be the rule and idiot clickers should be banned for life from...
