News labs at Google, +Google for Media have new satellite images for the Germanwings flight, you can download and use at the link below. Really brings home how remote a place this is to stage a response.

exactly what tech should do for us.. nice
 
Color scale conditional formatting in Sheets
Now it's even easier to visualize which numbers are the highest and lowest in a range--just select the “color scale” option when setting up conditional formatting. Plus, if you change any of the values, the colors will automatically update as you go. More info in the Help Center:  http://goo.gl/GhRKQG

And one more thing: you can now import Excel files with color scale formatting too!

Sony Vegas 11 launched in Sept 2011 with 13 in April 2014, one of the reasons I was slow on an update, users said no real difference albeit for the tablet type edits, soon find out. Remember most features of any video editor were there at the start, simple stuff like cutting a clip, simple fades and rendering the video. BUT, 11.0 did not allow me to make the correct file to be processed at youtube immediately, so let's see what 13 will do..

I'm giving Sony Vegas Movie Studio 13 Platinum a trial. If anyone wants to swap ideas or learn, drop me a note. I've used 11.0 for a few years on my win7 old laptop, it works just about ok. In my view real video editing is about heartbeats and feeling, not how many transactions or effects you have. And with youtube setting a pace of short vids, all the more pressure or getting a decent video made..

+Mike Downes Well to be fair that's the vertical Meerkat says it's aiming at: ephemeral live streaming. And I do think ease of use (which can sometimes = cool) is a big factor for broadcasters and especially viewers. My network, TWiT, does more live streaming than almost anyone, eight hours a day seven days a week, but we spent many years and more than a million US dollars building it. Meerkat does it with a click. This YouTube solution is a little more complicated, but I feel it's a good choice for a different vertical: instant streaming one wants to save permanently.

A pretty wow type two mins, in terms of film making, animation, real life on location and the talk of Hollywood meets the UK, or is that the UK meets Hollywood? No matter, absolute delight of a video. So many creative thoughts to explore, digital gives us the freedom to do things, the old school techniques just never allowed.

The Youtube Audio Library Resource Page It was 1 Oct 2013 when YouTube launched the free music audio library with 161 tracks.

Today, 18 months later, there are 1,203 tracks - that's a whole lotta choice, so how do we make the best of them?

This resource page will help you get started while offering a few insights into making the most of the process of searching, listening, downloading and using a suitable track.

Of those 1,203 tracks, they are made by 50 artists. Silent Partner has 403 tracks where many artists have just one track. There average being 24.

From what I've seen, and as the slide shows, there is real diversity here and it's a friendly place. The library is for students and staff, but others can get access if they fill out some forms and say why they need the books - one reason is for accessing titles that are not found elsewhere ie in a public library.

Well stocked for student resources, carries many extras like computer accessories, even bike spares like inner tubes. My fave was the simple reporter's pad. (from memory opening hours are Mon-Fri 9-5.30pm).

Excellent addition to the ARU Chelmsford Campus. Also includes the Startup Lab - I've added the odd course from called Be Your Own Boss. Whenever I go past, even late into the weekends, there's always a light on with someone hard at work. Wish them all a long and distinguished success :)
