I am looking for advice on how to connect an Android tablet to my D7000, so I can use it as a super-sized viewer as I take photos. Like this: I take the photo, and then the tablet is able to display the photo just taken. Can this be done with a D7000?

Since the D7000 has no native wifi built into it, I assume I would connect the tablet to the D7000 by using an OTG cable plugged into the tablet, with a standard USB cable plugged into the OTG end and the USB port in the D7000. But is there an Android app that will work with this setup? I had had no luck getting this to work with DSLR Dashboard or Helicon. Any suggestions?

A Kickstarter campaign in support of the new Solas album-in-progress. These guys are simply the best, long the gold standard for Irish/Celtic traditional and progressive acoustic music and song. I'm in. Are you?

An inviting article of beloved Dublin, Ireland, part of the 36-hour series in the New York Times. The 5-minute video is very good.

In a related context, I remain impressed how well so many British and Australian actors can affect a flat American accent, but almost universally never seem able to do an American southern accent without it sounding like a caricature.

"After having collected these photographs for almost 20 years, ...I can trace how stereotypes that were constructed in the imperial age continue to shape and distort contemporary Western views. While Europe is currently submerged in a tide of mounting xenophobia toward its black citizens, the issue of representation has once again become crucial, almost vital."

An insightful assessment by Margaret Sullivan (the public editor at the New York Times) of Nate Silver, famed creator of the data-driven FiveThirtyEight blog. A model of how to write about a colleague in an even-handed yet ultimately complementary manner.

One last shout-out from the recent trip to Ireland: The Pax Guest House [http://www.pax-house.com/] in Dingle, County Kerry. This is a view from the back deck of the house. While in Ireland we stayed in a mix of B&Bs and hotels, some less expensive and some more expensive, but the Pax Guest House was by far the best place we stayed at during the trip. The rooms and bathrooms have been modernized recently and felt luxurious. (If you can get one, ask for a room with a view of Dingle harbor. Well worth the extra charge.) Breakfast was excellent, with scones and clotted cream to die for!  The proprietor John O'Farrell and his staff were always charming and attentive. We wish we had planned more days in Dingle. We were truly regretful to have to leave the Pax Guest House. Its reputation as one of the best places to stay in Ireland is well deserved.
