Check out this free webinar to learn how to calibrate your color grading monitor.Learning the essentials of how to calibrate your grading monitor is key to being able to assure your clients that your image is true and accurate.In this free webinar from SpectraCal you can get a very thorough introduction to the theory and practice of calibrating your display and how to use the CalMAN 4 and 5 tools to do just that. The audio is a bit rough, but if you can bear through it there’s tons of great info:How To Calibrate Your DisplayImage from VanHurkman.comIn this recent blog post from colorist and trainer Alexis Van Hurkman, you can learn how to use LightSpace CMS and DaVinci Resolve 10 to calibrate your plasma client display. Alexis’ article goes into detail on how to use automated LUT calibration with his particular grading suite set up, but you can use the technique with almost any display.While I’m discussing my particular use case, it’s worth pointing out that these procedures are identical for calibrating any kind of display, be it plasma, LCD, OLED, or projection. In fact, with plasma displays soon to be discontinued by Panasonic (according to the last news I’ve heard), the various debates about whether or not plasma is truly suitable for professional use shall eventually become moot. However, for now, plasmas are still very much in use at facilities around the world, so this information is still relevant.Check out Alexis’ article for a great read on using LightSpace CMS, Klein K-10 colorimeter and using a calibration LUT inside DaVinci Resolve 10.

No matter what comes of this entire saga — and likely the final verdict won’t come for months or years (it’s weird to think that I might not be running this blog anymore when the final verdict comes, heck, it’s weird to think that Gabe Lindsay might finally have graduated when the verdict finally drops!). But whatever comes of it, these two truths remain:Oklahoma State’s national reputation has been sullied. No matter if everything is proven 100% false and Thayer Evans is tarred and feathered in Times Square on national television, OSU is still getting a raw deal. All most people will remember is “isn’t that the school that was on the cover of SI for doing stupid stuff.” And that part sucks.The other truth is that no matter what the truth is, Sports Illustrated didn’t do this the right way. Shadily recording Aso Pogi and telling other dudes (like Donnell) that you were doing a story on how their life is going even though your ultimate goal was to get dirt on Stillwater out of them. Come on, that’s clownin’ and not what I’d hope for from an organization like SI.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber. You can go there to comment and holler about these articles, specifically in these threads. You can register for a free account right here and will need one to comment.If you’re wondering why we decided to do this, we wrote about that here. Thank you and cheers!

He showed it since the first game against Manchester United in America [in pre-season]. He is something different and sometimes that’s a game-changer.”
AC Milan coach Gattuso concedes Higuain now closer to Chelseaby Carlos Volcano9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAC Milan coach Rino Gattuso has hinted Gonzalo Higuain is leaving for Chelsea this week.Gattuso was speaking after the Coppa Italia win over Sampdoria.He said, “We have a very honest relationship, we say things to people’s faces. There is great honesty. When a player makes certain choices, it becomes difficult to convince him otherwise. One can try.“At this moment, he is a Milan player and we’re holding on tight. I don’t know what will happen. We are honest with each other and I want him to maintain this attitude, which has never been lacking thus far.”Gattuso continued: “I’ve talked to him a great deal, but it’s hard to give advice, because the career of a player only lasts 13-14 years. It’s his mind, not mine. The most important thing is to talk as men, look each other in the eyes and speak the truth.“I haven’t figured out what Higuain is unhappy with, because I see him look content and involved in the locker room atmosphere. We’ll see what happens. If it was up to me, I’d keep him at my house and feed him my dinner.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say
Twitter/@CoachZachSmithThe high-scoring NCAA Football game between Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones and Jared Foley, a Buckeyes fan that he visited in the hospital before the national championship, is quickly becoming one of the most hotly-contested video game results that we can remember. The game was originally thought to be a 91-35 win for Jones, but yesterday he clarified that he added a late touchdown to make it 98-35.Clearly, Jones wants to get credit for all of the points he scored, but he may have undersold Foley’s effort himself. In response to a t-shirt that an OSU fan created to celebrate the game, Foley claims that he actually scored 42 [email protected] I NEED ONE!! #Savage RT @Court0385: @CJ12_ @bearfoley check out the new shirts pic.twitter.com/xRauvMJbi1— Zach Sith #Zone6 (@CoachZachSmith) February 11, [email protected] it was 98-42— jared foley (@bearfoley) February 11, [email protected] yeah I scored in the finel minute— jared foley (@bearfoley) February 11, 2015Maybe Cardale can invite him to the next Taco Tuesday to make up for this discrepancy.

OTTAWA – As grisly details of the rape and death of eight-year-old Tori Stafford were being recounted by a Conservative MP during question period Wednesday, some MPs reacted with gasps of revulsion.But it wasn’t the specifics of the crime that upset members of Parliament. Rather it was the fact these details were being shared in the House of Commons that made politicians and others watching the debate recoil.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reacted by pleading with the Opposition Conservatives for more decorum.“I would ask them, please do not continue to increase the level of graphic detail read into the official record here,” he said.“This is not the way this house should be engaging.”It was the latest episode in what has been a week of heightened levels of rhetoric and vitriol that has even devolved into swearing and name-calling among MPs, both in the House of Commons and online.On Tuesday, New Democrat MP Romeo Saganash was asked to apologize shortly after using the F-word during question period. Saganash used the word as he accused Trudeau of not caring about Indigenous rights when it comes to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.All week, Conservatives have engaged in heated debate over concerns that Veterans Affairs Canada was funding PTSD treatment for Christopher Garnier, who was convicted of killing an off-duty police officer in 2015. The Conservatives have repeatedly cited details of the case, calling the payments “disgraceful.”These debates have spilled into social media, with several MPs regularly engaging in particularly caustic exchanges. In one such Twitter debate this week over the Garnier payment issue, Conservative MP Michelle Rempel called Veterans Affairs Minister Seamus O’Regan a “ridiculous coward” and a “disgrace.”Concerns have been raised about the level of decorum in the House of Commons time and again, but there seems to be no consensus on how to improve things.Results from a recent survey of MPs, conducted in May and June by the Samara Centre for Democracy, found lawmakers from across the political spectrum were dissatisfied with the tone of debate. But no agreement could be found on possible reforms.MPs indicated they often don’t know what mechanical fixes are available, but as soon as one side or another offers an option, it becomes “infected with partisan politics,” said research director Mike Morden.“In part, I think it happens in the life cycle of a Parliament that you get to a point where frustration is starting to peak, and I think it’s often the case in the latter stages of a Parliament,” he said.But he says he has heard several close observers of federal politics who have remarked the events of the last week do not often “get this bad.”For his part, Trudeau has tried to stay above the fray.On Thursday, the prime minister took a measured and low-key tone to his voice when answering questions about the Stafford case. He also apologized to the speaker for his back bench getting too loud.He has not been blameless. Trudeau apologized last week for saying the word “damn” during question period as part of his response to a question.But a senior government official says Trudeau feels it is important to approach tragic cases like the Stafford murder and Garnier case with sensitivity.“I think there’s a line between partisan rhetoric and getting into details that don’t necessarily need to be read into hansard,” the official said on condition of anonymity.“The prime minister and even minister (House Leader Bardish) Chagger have said they are focused on raising the level of debate so that it’s fact-based, that’s it’s actually engaging debate on a variety of issues, and I don’t’ think that’s what we saw today or what we’ve seen in recent months.”— Follow @ReporterTeresa on Twitter
Ohio State football (3-1) is just days away from opening Big Ten play against the Michigan State Spartans (3-1). First-year head coach Luke Fickell discussed freshman quarterback Braxton Miller’s Saturday performance against Colorado at a Tuesday press conference. Fickell might have also issued a veiled challenge to OSU students to ratchet up the noise level for the Buckeyes’ remaining games. No more “or” The latest OSU depth chart, released to the media on Tuesday, now shows only freshman Braxton Miller’s name in bold print. Every previous depth chart had both Miller and redshirt senior Joe Bauserman’s names in bold and read: “Joe Bauserman or Braxton Miller.” Miller helped lead the Buckeyes to a 37-17 win against Colorado Saturday. “(Miller) did a good job,” Fickell said. “The number one thing he did was hold onto the football… threw some good balls later in the game.” Showing the students some love For the second time since the conclusion of the Buckeyes’ 37-17 Saturday win against Colorado, first-year coach Luke Fickell spoke of the OSU student body. “I think the one thing our guys enjoyed as much as I did is having students back on campus,” Fickell said. “Obviously, the way we played is a boost, but it’s nice to have that behind you. Really want to thank them. Hopefully they continue to do the same things and get better each and every week.” Injury update The status of senior defensive lineman Nathan Williams and sophomore defensive back Corey Brown for the Buckeyes’ next game remains uncertain. “Maybe we’ll have a little better idea (of their status) maybe by Wednesday,” Fickell said. Captaincy carousel Junior running back Jordan Hall, defensive back and special teams player Nate Ebner and defensive back and linebacker Nate Oliver will act as captains for this week’s game against Michigan State. Hall, along with defensive back Travis Howard and defensive back Corey Brown, was suspended for the first two games of the season for accepting $200 in a white envelope from a former university booster at a Cleveland area charity event. In his two games since returning from suspension, Hall has amassed 354 all-purpose yards while also scoring a touchdown. Saturday’s game against the Spartans is set for a 3:30 p.m kickoff in Ohio Stadium. The game will be televised regionally by ABC.
