You see, the outcome of the battle is unimportant. What matters is the chaos, and the slaughter.

(I just finished American Gods for the second time; it was even better than I remembered.)

Crocus Views
This is the first of a series of Crocus images that I’ll be posting over the course of the next few days. The idea is to illustrate some of the results you can get with just a few simple manipulations of an otherwise straightforward image. The first image is a unmanipulated shot of a Crocus flower on a lightbox. I used levels and vibrance adjustment layers in Photoshop as well as some sharpening; otherwise, the image was pretty much as you see it. In the second image, I’ve applied a luminosity inversion to the first image. A luminosity inversion changes the brightness of each pixel relative to its distance from middle grey. Thus, if a pixel is very close to middle grey, you’ll see very little difference in its brightness. But the further a pixel strays from middle grey, the further its inversion will place it on the other side of mid grey. Thus, light grey becomes dark grey (and vice versa), white becomes black , etc.

There are multiple ways to achieve a luminosity inversion in Photoshop, but one simple way is to first invert the whole image (Cmd/Ctrl I) and then reinvert the hue only (use a Saturation/Hue adjustment layer and push the Hue slider all the way to either the left or right extreme). Inverting the image has the effect of inverting both Hue and Luminosity. Inverting the Hue returns it to normal while leaving the luminosity in its inverted state. My subsequent posts will show the results of a few in-camera effects and how these appear in both the normal and inverted luminosity modes.

Brain Change: Addiction Takes Over (https://goo.gl/T6GYAi)

Drug addiction changes many things about life. You might lose your friends and family, health and wealth, position and job due to substance abuse. Many people will look at addiction with a sigh and say that addicts should just quit.*

It is not as easy to end addiction as it is to get started. The brain changes due to addiction and changes the way that we think about life. The thought processes that controls fear and survival efforts are impacted by the ongoing use of drugs. The part of the brain that seeks reward and gratification changes to accommodate the drug of choice.

Although it might be difficult to kick your addiction, the good news is that it is possible with the right program and some hard work to recalibrate the brain away from substance abuse.

YouTube Red Original Promoted Via Google Assistant Streaming
Google advertises latest YouTube Original by making first episode free via Assistant.

Impulse is a YouTube Red series that recently debuted. The show is based on the novel with the same name, and follows 16-year-old character Henrietta, also known as Henry. Impulse is a series from Bourne Identity director Doug Liman about a young girl who can teleport herself out of trouble, at the cost of breaking everything (and everyone) in the vicinity.

Google is making the first episode available to anyone who uses Google Assistant to launch it. To do that, users must tell the Assistant to “Talk to Impulse.” Once that command is received, Google Assistant will rattle off a quick intro to the show and ask the user for the secret password.

The user then gives the password, which is “Henry” or other variations of the main character’s name (“Henry Coles,” etc). If you don’t give it the password, Assistant will send you off to research the show and figure out the name yourself. The series will be a YouTube Red Original and require a subscription going forward to access the remainder of the series.

It’s an interesting way to not only promote the upcoming show, but also a way to promote Google Assistant and its feature that lets you talk to it to stream content just by speaking to it.
