> At a time when the public’s trust in news is declining in much of the world, the news industry is launching a new set of transparency standards that help people easily assess the quality and reliability of journalism.

Leading media companies representing dozens of news sites have begun to display Trust Indicators, which provide clarity on the organizations’ ethics and other standards, the journalists’ backgrounds, and how they do their work. These indicators, created by leaders from more than 75 news organizations as part of the nonpartisan Trust Project, also show what type of information people are reading – news, opinion, analysis or advertising.

Each indicator is signaled in the article and site code, providing the first standardized technical language for platforms to learn more from news sites about the quality and expertise behind journalists’ work. Google, Facebook, Bing and Twitter have all agreed to use the indicators and are investigating and piloting ideas about how to best to use them to surface and display quality journalism.

Yeah. This crazed gunner was practically doing these people a favor.

Just looking at the positive side of a mass shooting.

Could have been worse.

Pixel Lens Blur vs Pixel 2 Portrait Mode?

So I went out and took a whole bunch of Lens Blur portraits of my Son and Daughter with the Pixel. There were a few very good results, but the majority were down-right awful, or had a cartoonish sort of outline around the subject.

My understanding of the Pixel 2 is that it pretty much does the same thing - i.e. bokeh effect all in software. No second camera like many other smartphones.

So, for anybody that has used this much in the original Pixel, and also once again in the Pixel 2, how does it stack up? A remarkable improvement? Pretty much the same thing?
