Power to the People!
 
The quiet revolution of students and parents opting out of standardized testing.

http://bit.ly/1HtibmW
If the Opt Out movement has gained ground, it is not without reason. Testing has not only pushed learning out, but taught people how to "game" the system.

Survival Guide for Photographers: Interview with Artist Rep Maren Levinson #AXSTrendingNow   #Marketing   #Photography  
Let's face it; the industry is changing. Art directors and potential clients are not looking to simply hire a photographer anymore. They do not care about your lighting, your gear, or even your previous clients. So what do they care about then? Photographer John Keatley sits down with artist rep Maren Levinson at Redeye to discuss the future of photography, and there is a very good chance you are not going to like what she has to say.

Open Source Software to Catalogue Cultural Heritage Before a Crisis

Cultural heritage management tends to suffer from limited funding and resources, which can make a crisis — whether natural disaster, pipeline construction, or war — that much more catastrophic for assessing what's in need of protection.

Why Your Lightroom CC May Actually Be Slower with the New GPU Acceleration

When Adobe unveiled Lightroom CC/6 last month, one of the big features in the update was support for graphics processors (GPU) in order to speed things up in the Develop module. Adobe claimed that some users would see up to a 10x performance increase with the GPU helping the CPU out.

Unfortunately for some users who bought or upgraded to Lightroom CC/6, that hasn’t been the case.

I had not been to this store in about ten years, and boy has it changed. I thought I was in the wrong store because the upper level was now solely biking gear. actually walked out thinking I was in the wrong spot.When I walked into the store no one greeted me or asked if I needed help until I walked to the very back of the store were the staff was assembled. No one came out to greet me even at this point. I took that to mean that I wasn't worthy of their time. I told them what I was looking for and they sent me to the lower level, where I asked about the item I was looking for, a folding camping chair. The staff here was a little better, but I got the sense that I wasn't going to spend enough to receive quality service. I also felt that I was being sized up by my demographic profile, and I'm old enough to know when that's happening. At this point I didn't want to give these folks any of my business. This was once a great store with knowledgeable and courteous staff. Now it's a hangout for a young rude staff with elitist and entitled attitudes. They think they're the only game in town, but they're not. Inventory alone does not make the shopping experience. Plus, you'll get the same stuff (without the foo foo) at better prices somewhere else.
