The Cry Of The Wolf

After the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone Park it has been shown they not only improved the whole ecology of the area they even changed the rivers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysa5OBhXz-Q

We need to understand that each creature on the planet is here for a reason, each one has a role to play on the earth and that roles is not for the amusement of humankind. 

This is an Arctic wolf, on the decline through over hunting, will it be too late before we realise the role this wolf has to play in the sustainability of our planet?

November Self Portrait Challenge Honorable Mentions

Here are the Honorable Mentions from the "Cinematic" November Challenge. You can see the Event and all of the submissions here: http://goo.gl/R6BksF

The photos attached to this post were considered finalist contenders but were not eligible to win prizes because either they were created by moderators (we play but we aren't eligible to win!) or these photographers have won sometime in the past 6 months. However, because these photos would go into the Finalists pool otherwise, I wanted them to get recognition, and so these are our Honorable Mentions. Well done! (Click to enlarge the photo and see who's tagged in them.)

photos are cropped for the purpose of the mosaic - you can (and should - it's particularly important for the "Cinematic" theme to see the full crop!) view the originals in the event linked above

Stay tuned to see who the fantastic finalists are…

Thanks to our November prize sponsors +Think Tank Photo, +SmugMug, +BorrowLenses.com, +500px, & +Capturing Couture! We love their products and services and appreciate their support. :)

Welcome to the future: NICE, Neuro-Inspired Computational Elements 

"(Phys.org) —The brain's repute took a big hit in 1997 when an IBM supercomputer defeated world chess champion Gary Kasparov in a match reported around the world. But in the second round, the brain is back.

A Sandia National Laboratories-supported workshop in Albuquerque called NICE, for Neuro-Inspired Computational Elements workshop, discussed ways to use the brain's superior ability to send electrical signals along massively parallel channels, with multiple intersections at downstream nodes, to handle rapidly changing, high-volume information."
