#HanSolo Standalone Film Now Called #Solo: A #StarWars Story

These Star Wars spinoffs are a part of the larger universe and are meant to tell stories that aren't about the core saga. We saw a little bit of that in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and we will see that once more in the Han Solo standalone film, which has…

Today we're publishing a Google Research Blog article about portrait mode, a new feature of the Pixel 2 smartphone that lets you capture shallow depth-of-field pictures of family, friends, and flowers. It runs on both the rear-facing and selfie cameras, even though neither is a dual camera. How is this possible? Lots of machine learning, and some other tricks. Read about it in our blog

Packers' Mike McCarthy bristles at question about possibly signing Colin Kaepernick

For weeks, if not months, every time an NFL team has had a sudden opening at its quarterback position, a debate ensues about whether it should sign Colin Kaepernick. The question arose again Monday in Green Bay, a day after Aaron Rodgers suffered a potentially season-ending injury to his throwing shoulder in a game at Minnesota.

Two days with Michael

Dear friends. 5 years ago this day Michael Jackson died. We were friends since he visited me in our mountain hut in Sulden in 2001. A sensitive genius of the century who lived in his own world!

I asked him for a song, but he wanted to protect his voice. He asked me if I could sing a German song for him. Me??? It was very strange. But he kept insisting. I had to sing Lili Marleen and Sag mir, wo die Blumen sind again and again. Two anti-war songs. With guitar.

JT sings for MJ. There's nothing more absurd.

Until today I keep thinking about the pillow fights with Michael, Valerie and Françoise at 5 a.m. Michael could not sleep. I think about our meditations together. We had the same mantra. About our Spagetti with Langustinos whose eyes he covered with a serviette because they made him sad.

I remember a phone call with my children who were in London at the time and did not know anything about the secret visit of Michael in Sulden. Michael had a long conversation with Freddy about God and the world. Freddy stayed cool. It could not disturb his calmness that he was on the phone with a world superstar.

Michael called Nathalie, my youngest daughter. But she only laughed at him: "If you are Michael Jackson then I am the Pope." - she said and hung up. Michael came back from the call with Nathalie totally unsettled.

We talked a lot about wars which he despised. When he was about to be awarded with a Bambi award in Berlin in the fall of 2002 he was to have a speech. I asked him to say something about the upcoming Iraq war. A big part of the US troops were already in Kuwait. Michael stared at me long and said: "You know that will bring me a lot of flak in the US." I nodded my head. I knew too well.

At night at the award ceremony in front of millions of TV viewers Michael said in his speech:

"We are German, French, Italian, Russian, African, Asian, so many nationalities. We are Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus. We are black, we are white. We are a big community with so many differences. So complex yet so simple. WE DO NOT NEED WAR!"

Michael, you were a wonderful human being and a one of a kind artist. That is why you were so much hunted like a wounded deer. Destroying the winners is the favourite game of our world.

We will never forget you. I keep listening to your songs. My favourites are Earth Song and We Are The World. For millions of people you will never die. Thank you, Michael!

Your JT

And here's the video: JT sings for Michael Jackson :)

Schizophrenia Disrupts Brain's Entire Communication System

It is the largest analysis of "white matter" (fatty brain tissue enabling neurons to talk to each other) differences in a psychiatric disorder to date and was made possible by a federal grant to the Keck School of Medicine of USC. The study displaces a theory that schizophrenia manifests due to wiring problems in only the prefrontal and temporal lobes. These front-facing areas of the brain are responsible for personality, decision-making and hearing perception.

Just another Norwegian town on some Fjord...

This place was one of our more..ahem.. 'interesting' accommodation choices, turned out to be a rather religious institution, whilst nothing wrong with that, it just was not very clear to the average punter looking for a place to stay :) .. luckily for us it was our night off the turps and no mischief to be had ;) ... Ironically I had to throw pebbles at the window to get let back in after my sunset shoot (that was about 11:30 pm :) ) .. musta looked at bit suss :)

Norway, everytime I open up the folder of images there is always another shot that jumps out at me, even after al this time

Google photos does these "stylized pictures" randomly on the pictures you upload.

And it really doesn't seem to work with underwater creatures.

BuzzFeed Article About “Seinfeld” Door Sensor Prank Built with Adafruit MP3 Shield | @SeinfeldTV @JerrySeinfeld
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/10/17/buzzfeed-article-about-seinfeld-door-sensor-prank-built-with-adafruit-mp3-shield-seinfeldtv-jerryseinfeld/

Inspired by Chloe Alix’s 1.2M-viewed bass riff door sensor YouTube video, NAU undergrad Evan Genuise built his version using our own MP3 shield to hilarious effect (and causing a number of equally hilarious reactions documented by BuzzFeed).

Evan Genuise, 18, is a freshman at Northern Arizona University where he’s pursuing electrical engineering and computer science.

About a month ago, Genuise came across a YouTube tutorial from user Chloe Alix demonstrating how to install a motion sensor that triggers the Seinfeld theme/riff. “As soon as I saw the video I wanted to make one,” he said.
