Govetts Leap Blackheath
Celebration: countdown 4

In full flow, on a nice bright sunny day, the water of this deep leap changes shape from top braids, mid waves to bottom mists as water velocity increases.

Image: I originally processed this panorama of 5 shots with VSCO emulation Fuji Velvia 100 Landscape with vibrancy and image noise reduced. In the past 5 years, the post production tools available to photographers have improved dramatically - but VSCO has ceased making its emulations (which is a loss). This time i have reprocessed for printing toning this image for structure.

Celebrate: Thank you. To celebrate what we all achieved on G+, i am publishing the 50 most viewed posts in this collection (with 450m views) until shutdown. This is an reprocessed image of this fall (4th most viewed).

For those of you who have followed this collection, as a sign of my appreciation for your interest and support, i will be publishing a free downloadable 100 page book on these falls shortly: details will be posted on www.silenttheory.net later today.

#CelebrateCountdown (please feel free to use this hashtag to celebrate your own favorite posts)
This platform has been great for photographers and writers. An increasing number of fine photographers, story tellers and just nice people are moving to www.tipua.com . If you would like to try out a different, co-operative environment, come have a look - and maybe join us.

Special counsel Robert Mueller said evidence doesn’t prove that Trump was involved in a crime relating to Russian interference.
Attorney General William Barr has found insufficient proof to pursue further prosecutions.
However, the report does not exonerate Trump; it simply finds insufficient evidence of criminal conduct.
Sarah Sanders called the findings of the Department of Justice a "total and complete exoneration" of Trump.

Before Arctic Sea freezed many areas, most coldest season in March, but 2019 first was few days -50C, after -50C was nothing in this 2019. Barent Sea, Greenland Sea, Bering Sea are nothing ice sheets on this March 23 2019. Continuting bad conditions since 2015. Badman Nishioka/ rainforest action group/HUTAN Group/Osaka  Now Northern-west Greenland only be -20C, anothers nothing, +10C over of temperature!!!
The Greenland Ice Sheet has an area of 1.7 million square kilometres and in places is 3.2 kilometres thick. The Ice Sheet consists of 2.9 million cubic kilometres of ice, and if all the ice melted, the water level in the oceans would rise by around seven metres.
The Greenland Ice Sheet is the world’s third-largest ice cap. It is beaten only by the two large ice caps on Eastern Antarctica and Western Antarctica.

http://polarportal.dk/en/sea-ice-and-icebergs/sea-ice-thickness-and-volume/ 

The graph on the right shows the annual variation of the volume of the sea ice in the Northern Hemisphere, excluding the Baltic Sea and the Pacific. The volume of the ice is calculated on the basis of the ice thicknesses from the HYCOM-CICE model. In each grid cell the volume is calculated as thickness multiplied with concentration and with area, with contributions from all grid cells to the total volume. The grey band around the climatologic mean value corresponds to plus/minus one standard deviation based on the 10-year average 2004-2013.

Read more about the model the map is based on.

President Donald #Trump likes to tout a strong #economy - central to the image he wants to project as a successful businessman now bringing that same acumen to politics. But at the same time, the #FederalReserve is sending signals that U.S. economic growth is slowing - and could slow significantly more leading up to the #2020presidentialelection, ominous signs for the president’s re-election prospects, which could swing on the electorate’s impression of a mixed, mushy economy.

#JeromePowell said the Fed has lowered its #GDP forecast for 2019 to 2.1% growth, a point below 3.1% GDP realized between the Q4s of 2017 and 2018. While Trump’s grasp of economic reality is often challenged, fact-checked and spun by his political adversaries as exaggerated, the president nevertheless continues boasting about the economy, which enjoys full employment, high consumer confidence and low inflation. One area of the economy that the #Fed and Trump can agree on is anxiety that the slowing #globaleconomy could have a negative impact on the #USeconomy, and in turn - his candidacy for another 4 years in office.

Could a slowing economy be a drag on President Trump's re-election prospects?

The number of universities in England with operating deficits in 2017-18 increased to 32, compared with 24 the year before and 10 in 2015-16. Across the UK, the number reporting deficits rose to 47, compared with 40 in 2016-17.

And who are those worst off?

Reading’s income, reported to the Higher Education Statistics Agency, was £317m against total expenditure of £348m.

Other universities in England with large budget deficits included London Metropolitan and Bradford, while Robert Gordon and Queen Margaret in Scotland also posted large deficits.

Soas University of London, seen as being in considerable financial difficulty, reported income of £92m but spending of nearly £95m.

At last year’s annual developer conference, Google announced that it would add a cool new AR navigation feature to its Maps platform especially aimed at people commuting often by walk in unknown locations. Now that's available in India. Here is how you can check if the feature is enabled for you. https://techpp.com/2019/03/23/google-maps-ar-navigation-india/

"A state-of-the-art neural architecture search (NAS) algorithm recently developed by Google to run on a squad of graphical processing units (GPUs) took 48,000 GPU hours to produce a single convolutional neural network, which is used for image classification and detection tasks." "An NAS algorithm that can directly learn specialized convolutional neural networks (CNNs) for target hardware platforms -- when run on a massive image dataset -- in only 200 GPU hours" has been developed by MIT researchers.

"The researchers developed ways to delete unnecessary neural network design components, to cut computing times and use only a fraction of hardware memory to run a NAS algorithm. An additional innovation ensures each outputted CNN runs more efficiently on specific hardware platforms -- CPUs, GPUs, and mobile devices -- than those designed by traditional approaches. In tests, the researchers' CNNs were 1.8 times faster measured on a mobile phone than traditional gold-standard models with similar accuracy."

The Stairs - 2

+Elizabeth Kearvell I was looking back through old posts tonight Elizabeth and discovered very sadly that Roger Agnes had passed away a year or so ago. We had a good many chat and shared a love of flowers and westies. It's a terrible thing that the work of so many people is being simply deleted soon.

Cave Creek Nepean (Woodhouse Canyon)

For fun. Woodhouse Creek enters a deep canyon through the long cave seen in this picture. A long exposure picks out color detail on the walls, including greenery where sun penetrates. This can become a raging torrent after rain in the catchment above.

Paint with buttons like "rock," "water," "clouds," "snow," and a neural network generates a photorealistic image. It's basically image segmentation in reverse.

With spring well on its way, I thought I'd share with y'all this cozy transitional look. Layers are vital this time of year, but we can still start incorporating a few lighter colors that are fitting for the season! http://www.fallingforautumn.com/2019/03/springtime-scarf.html
