#Photography: Taking Great Photos In Spite Of These 3 Common Weather Related Roadblocks

When the weather takes a turn for the worse it can be difficult to muster up the motivation to get out there and make photographs. On top of that, when you’re not a fan of the weather forecast in the first place, it can be impossible to even imagine you would find something inspiring to photograph out there even if you were to brave the elements. However, pushing ourselves to do something that falls outside of our comfort zones is what makes us stronger photographers.

#Musicproduction: u-he releases Protoverb - Free "Research-ware" Plug-in for Mac & Win VST, AU & AAX #freedownload

U-he has released Protoverb for Mac OS X and Windows.
Protoverb is an experimental "room simulator" style reverb plug-in created in an effort to research and learn more about reverb.
While the controls and look of Protoverb are simplified, underneath is a complex array of parallel, serial and networked delays and the parameters to control these delays. This means there is no mathematical formula that makes such a structure sound "just right". As with delay based reverbs, it's down to trial and error, and luck with random values.

Deliver amazing customer experiences.
Glengarry Glen Ross is an amazing film, and I had a lot of fun with one of my favorite teams riffing on the famous Alec Baldwin scene as inspiration for naming this ebook. That being said, a lot has changed in sales since the fictitious burglary of the leads in that Chicago real estate office.
In the dot-com boom, we focused on using technology to drive down costs, extend reach, and grow businesses. We were very successful, but ended up with businesses that were transactional. Today, social is a new part of our lives, something that puts a human element back into business in a way that scales beyond face-to-face interactions. Sales teams have an unprecedented opportunity to reach more would-be customers than ever, and the way we sell will never be the same.
This first ebook on social listening for sales also accompanies the launch of Microsoft Social Listening and Social Insights, powered by InsideView. Both are now available in Dynamics CRM at no additional cost and can be used by anyone with a professional license*. This type of affordable, democratized social insights is set to change the game for our customers, and we’ve only just begun.
We hope you find this series valuable to your organization, and we look forward to hearing about how you deliver amazing customer experiences.

Latest conspiracy theory - Neueste Verschwörungstheorie

The latest conspiracy theory: conspiracy theories are here for divertissement. The Ancient Romans gave bread and circuses to keep the crowd's mood up. Now conspiracy theories are thrown out and people discuss about Hollywood tricks of the moon landing pictures or about CIA bombs in the WTC on 9.11. in NYC. People have something to do and don't think about some special wheelings and dealings. But that is only yet another conspiracy theory.

Und da sind die Leute beschäftigt und hinterfragen gewisse Machenschaften erst gar nicht. Ist natürlich nur eine Verschwörungstheorie.
