The Miami Heat beat the Boston Celtics 104-98 to snap the Celtics' 16-game winning streak.

Following a 25-point loss to the Indiana Pacers, the Miami Heat started the first quarter with physical defense and set the tone early, which allowed them to build a 27-16 lead at the end of the quarter. The Heat wouldn't let up in the second quarter, with a pair of free throws by guard Goran Dragic allowing the team to extend their lead to 20 with 6:39 left in the quarter. Al Horford would knock down an 8-foot jumper with 30 seconds remaining in the second quarter to cut the lead to 51-41, but a three-pointer by Goran Dragic would push the Heat's lead back to 54-41 at the end of the first half.

The Heat didn't collapse in the third quarter like they did against the Pacers and so many other teams this season. Instead, they followed up their 51.3 percent shooting in the first half by shooting 49 percent in the third. The Heat would hold a 79-63 lead to start the fourth quarter, but the relentless Celtics would go on a 13-0 run to cut the lead to 91-90 with 3:14 remaining. Heat guard Dion Waiters would score the next 8 points — including a three-pointer that bounced on top the back board before falling in — to help snap the Celtics 16-game win streak.

Goran Dragic had 27 points (8/17 FG), 4 assists, and 5 rebounds.
Dion Waiters had 26 points (11/24 FG), 6 assists, and 2 rebounds.
Tyler Johnson had 16 points (5/9 FG) and 7 rebounds.

Kyrie Irving had 23 points (11/22 FG), 3 assists, and 3 steals.
Jayson Tatum had 18 points (3/4 3PT), 4 assists, and 7 rebounds.
Jaylen Brown had 14 points (6/10 FG), 3 rebounds, and 2 steals.

Strong bones may be vital for maintaining memory in old age

A hormone released by bones seems to reverse age-related memory loss. The hormone can be boosted by exercise, suggesting that lifting weights might protect the brain from the ravages of old age. Eric Kandel of Columbia University in New York and colleagues were interested in understanding the mechanisms behind normal age-related memory loss.

I USUALY DON'T POST ANYTHING OTHER THAN PHOTOS FROM MY ACCOUNT BUT I FEEL THAT THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT NOT TO BE SHARER!

On December 14th the FCC is going to vote to do away with the current Net Neutrality rules. This affects everyone, photographers included.

What that means, is that Comcast, WOW, Verizon, and any other internet provider will be able to control what you can and can't see on the internet. Which means they will be allowed to charge you money to visit different websites. Imagine having to pay for different "packages" that only gave you some websites. Kinda like cable television channels. That's what this vote decides. They will also be allowed to monitor your internet history and sell that to advertisers for profit.

The FCC has completely ignored public comments and and the fact nobody wants this to happen, the current FCC chairman, Ajit Pai, is being paid by Comcast and Verizon to make this happen.

Congress is the only thing that can stop this at this point. IF you want to help, visit the website below, and enter your phone number, then it will call you and connect you with senators and leave them a message telling them that you don't want this to happen. Spread the word!

Use Google Assistant to take a hands free group photo

Once you have Google Assistant set up:

 “Take a photo” will use the rear-facing camera.

You can edit the countdown by asking it to take a photo in however many seconds you need (you’ve got 30 seconds max), so you can get into position.

"Take a selfie" also works, with a 3 second countdown.

Fall Colors in Texas

Some of the fall color along the West Fork of the Trinity River in Texas last weekend. We are in prime fall color season in north Texas and I will be out again chasing fall colors in the area over the the long holiday weekend.

Many people will spend Black Friday at the mall. I will be on the trail with my camera.

Billionaire Elon Musk’s giant battery being built in the Australian outback will be energized in coming days and begin testing, indicating Tesla Inc. is on track to meet a 100-day self-imposed deadline to install the system.

The entrepreneur is building the system to help the state avert crippling electricity blackouts that have spurred a nationwide debate about security of energy supply in Australia. The futurist chief executive made a bet on Twitter in March that he could install a 100-megawatt storage facility within 100 days or it would be free.
