"Santa Monica Spin" , Santa Monica, California

The Santa Monica Pier at sunset with the old ferris wheel. Timing the spin is everything.

The Story

After getting a really nice sunset image from this spot and a 4 minute exposure from under the pier, I waited for the sun to go down. An extra long exposure and a little light still in the sky allowed the scene to become evenly lit. The wheel spun about 5 times during this exposure. The spinning wheel turned out to be the most import factor to getting a good photograph.


Sometimes the wheel stopped, and the dynamic feel of the resulting image was lost. Sometimes it would turn too quickly and become out of synch with the way the lights on the spokes worked, creating odd-looking effects. So a lot of experimentation was required to get a smooth and dynamic look without distracting features. Improvisation is often required to get the best photograph possible.

Also, the sand was reflective like this only part of the time. So that had to be factored in.

The new wheel is more tricky. The wheel must be spinning but the colors have to be not too bright or it will be overexposed. So wait for soft lights. Also, the new wheel spins less often than the old one so you may only get one or two chances when the light after sunset is just right. So be prepared. You may have to make many attempts before you get a good exposure.

I wrote a 325 eBook that describes exactly how I went about learning photography starting in 2006. I did not learn the usual way. I have studied the great masters of painting and hope to find that light in the real world.

Simply the best way to scout out locations that there is. You can see sun angles and pre-visualize light under lots of different conditions. Sometimes you can actually pre-compose your shots! This has saved me many thousands of vertical feet of climbing by avoiding spots with blocked views etc.

Thousands of Latino farmworkers have been waiting since 2013 for a state board to count their votes to dump a union that had abandoned them for 20 years. That board is trying to force the workers to join the union to justify its own existence. Failed politician Isadore Hall led a protest to deny the workers the right to have their votes counted. As a reward, Governor Jerry Brown gave him a $142,000 job on that control board to maintain the balance of corruption.

California approves vehicle pollution rules in rebuke to Trump

Author: ReutersSat, 2017-03-25ID: 1490426941599984900RIVERSIDE, California: California on Friday challenged the Trump administration’s approach to car pollution, approving standards that the White House said still need review and setting up a potential face-off between federal and state regulators.
California Governor Jerry Brown and other state officials have vowed to lead the defense of environmental and other traditionally liberal causes against President Donald Trump.
About a dozen states follow California’s car regulations in full or part, and the potential face-off between federal and state regulators could be expensive for automakers and a headache for consumers.
On Friday, the California Air Resources Board in a unanimous vote finalized 2022-2025 vehicle pollution rules for the state, set a mandate for zero-emission sales over the same time period, and ordered its staff to start work on targets for after 2025.
Last week the US Environmental Protection Agency said it would reconsider the 2022-2025 tailpipe emissions targets after auto makers requested the review.
The Obama administration rushed to finalize the federal standards after Trump’s election and car manufacturers said there was not enough time for consideration.
California Air Resources Board Chair Mary Nichols chided automakers for requesting federal intervention and questioned whether they wanted to undermine California’s authority.
“What were you thinking when you threw yourself on the mercy of the Trump administration to try to solve your problems?” she said. She invited the auto industry to suggest implementation changes that would not undermine the program’s goals.
John Bozzella, president and chief executive of the Global Automakers industry alliance, focused on the potential for cooperation, rather than the board’s criticism.
“I think we are where we want to be, which is working together,” he said. “We’re committed to a national program.”
A White House official, anticipating the California vote, told Reuters the Trump administration was committed to protecting jobs and providing consumers with affordable cars.
“We are disappointed that California has chosen to refuse our good-faith offer to work together with all relevant stakeholders on this important matter,” the person said.
A two-track regulatory system would leave consumers with potentially higher prices and could complicate their ability to move cars between states.
The California vote came on the heels of Congressional Republicans pulling consideration of a health care system overhaul, a defeat for Trump that appeared to energize the California board.
“If anything, these standards should be more aggressive,” board member Daniel Sperling said. The board would need federal approval for a post-2025 plans, but those rules may not be ready for review before the next presidential election.
Federal regulators could try to challenge California’s ability to make rules about greenhouse gases. Board member Hector De La Torre compared that to a divorce between federal and state regulators.
“If a divorce is going to happen at some point, we are going to litigate that divorce strongly,” he said.
US and California regulators last year projected that stricter pollution controls will add about $1,000 to the cost of each car sold in 2025, with mileage rising from 38.3 miles per gallon in model year 2021 to 46.3 in 2025. Automakers say they did not get enough time to review the study.Main category: WorldThe post California approves vehicle pollution rules in rebuke to Trump appeared first on bestforexmoney.info.The post California approves vehicle pollution rules in rebuke to Trump appeared first on Forex news forex trade.

From Davey D on that other social media site (with some editing by me):

I know there are lots of folks who are happy and even gleeful that the Orange Man lost out today with his attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare... Watching dude take a loss in such a public way is a good thing... But let's be crystal clear and not lose sight..

The Orange Man lost today because folks who he needed wanted something that way worse than what he was proposing.. The Freedom Caucus guys and other ultra conservatives wanted no expansion of medicaid, no provisions for women and childcare, they wanted to remove healthcare from anyone not working.. They wanted the Orange man to go even harder in the paint in terms of making Healthcare inaccessible... That's why dude lost...

What remains on the table is that the Democrats had no real strategy to stop what was taking place..They had no firewall to stop the votes.. They had no plan to get an alternative plan in there so folks could compare and contrast.. When the GOP presented Trumpcare the Dems should've been right there to show an even better, and more improved Obamacare.. Instead all we got was a push for us to make phone calls and sign petitions to a body of people who gave zero F--ks-did not work..

What we should've been pushing for and moving forward what we need to push for is Universal Healthcare. At every moment we should've been pushing to make healthcare an accessible right for all..The Dems should've been holding town halls, talking about how to make healthcare Free.. Our best and brightest minds need to be thinking about that and collectively our day to day conversation needs to have the idea of healthcare for all out in the open and on the table..

Make no mistake, the GOP folks will not take a loss lightly and they will do everything they can to undermine Obamacare and make it undesirable.. We should not forget that for many, premiums were skyrocketing just prior to the 2016 election. A lot of it had to do with GOP Governors not expanding ACA via medicaid and helping folks get subsidies..They will no doubt double down moving forward. I can also see them aggressively going after folks who don't have healthcare and making them pay fines...

There was a lot wrong with Obamacare..But when it passed, the selling point was folks were gonna do things to make it better... So lets look at the score card.. We know the GOP spent 7 years and took something like 60 votes and went to the supreme court twice to get rid of Obamacare and failed..

In 7 years what have we on the left and the Dems done to improve it? What bills have we pushed for? What conversations did we have with our congressional reps?? What have we done to make sure costs come down?..

The other day fellow journalist Mitch Jeserich reminded us how the Dems had put forth some aggressive Universal Healthcare type bills when Arnold Schwarzenegger was governor, knowing damn well he would veto it..The move got everyone excited, but once Jerry Brown a (Democrat) took office.. all those Universal Healthcare bills stopped coming...In other words the Dems were still in bed with big corporations and weren't trying to upset that boat..

So today a bullet was dodged and the Orange Man took one on the chin..But don't fool ourselves into thinking we threw that decisive blow.. Dude was taken out by friendly fire..That is not gonna happen again..Lets make sure we push hard as hell for what we really want and then some.. Don't get too comfortable..nuff said..
