Surprises of the Faraday Cage
By Lloyd N. Trefethen Nearly everyone has heard of the Faraday cage effect. So when I needed to learn about it, I assumed it would be a matter of looking in some standard physics books, maybe the ones I’d studied as an undergraduate. This was the beginning of a journey of surprises. The Faraday cage effect involves shielding of electrostatic and electromagnetic fields. A closed metal cavity makes a perfect shield, with zero fields inside, and tha...

NYC subway photographs, courtesy of 17-year-old Stanley Kubrick

http://dangerousminds.net/comments/stanley_kubrick_shoots_the_n.y.c._subway_1946
In the summer of 1945, Stanley Kubrick, many years before he was the acclaimed director of Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and A Clockwork Orange, had a series of photographs published in LOOK magazine, a competitor to LIFE. He was just 16 years old. Thus would begin a relationship with the magazine that would last several years, until he began making movies in earnest around the age of 23, in the early 1950s. Kubrick took this self-...

Priest who molested 'maybe 20 boys' says he was ordered to pray as punishment

Church members knew about the abuse but did not tell him to stop, according to Mr Brouillard
A Catholic priest who sexually abused “maybe 20” boys was instructed to say prayers to repent for his crimes. The 95-year-old admitted to molesting boys on Guam, a US island in the Pacific, and said he “got the impression that kids liked it”. According to Mr Brouillard, other Church members at the time knew about the abuse but they did not tell him to stop. Instead they told him to pray.

Getty Images sued again over alleged misuse of over 47,000 photos. Lawyer: "Getty has been carelessly and recklessly acquiring content."

Getty has disturbing and disgusting business practices. Drop them as your image licensing source if you or your company use them.

Here is my response to the repeated emails I get from Getty and affiliates over the past 15 years regarding licensing my photos.

"Hello xxxx,

Thank you for contacting me. My response is a resounding and emphatic "NO!" to your request. Getty/Corbis and other photo stock companies appear to represent the largest criminal extortion activity on the internet today. Essentially compiling billions of photos and offering pennies for licencing with the horrific compensation percentages. The mass exodus of photographers from Getty a while back represents the beginning of the fight against Getty as a Photographic Sweatshop, which it is.

I expect the email I received from you to be one of millions of harvested email addresses spammed to anyone who has posted a photograph on the internet as I regularly receive similar emails. You appear to have a lengthy service to these companies. I am more than disheartened that you appear to turn a blind eye to these flagrant violations of artists work and appear to feel this extortion is a normal, good thing.

The most wonderful thing you could do for the photographic world would be to terminate your employment with Getty/Room and become a outspoken supporter of fair usage and compensation for photographers work globally. These photographer sweatshops need to be closed forever. Please enjoy your next day off by sitting down under a wonderful shade tree with your favorite tea, a wonderful breeze blowing by and commit to a reasoned thought exercise on how debilitating the Getty business model is to photographers and artists. It is a sweatshop, and needs to be ended. We need the help.

My photographic library is registered with the U.S. Copyright Office and Canadian Intellectual Copyright Office (CIPO).

Truly thank you if you actually read this."

CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE PREVENTION

Advocate for educating adults and children about how to help prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. 

Statistically, in Canada & USA, 40% of abusers are family members. 95% of of abusers are known and trusted by the child and family, not "stranger danger". Coaches, teachers, babysitters. 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys have been/will be sexually abused. Prevention classes are needed throughout the entire education system.

Paedophiles always use fear tactics on children to keep them quite. Most survivors never tell, it is up to adults to open the lines of communication to assure them safety, support and services to recover. It is important to talk to children about sexual abuse, emphasizing unconditional support for your children, no matter what happens, they can tell you anything.

Please pass along these educational links.
