The 5 Most Horrible Things Nobody Tells You About Babies | Cracked.com
Hollywood comedies about parenthood depend entirely on making raising a kid look a ridiculous, hectic mess. Then, eventually the leading man finds out that in the end, the rewards make it all worth it. That's mostly because for whatever reason, baby murder is still taboo in modern Hollywood comedies.
When you have a real kid, you realize there's plenty of stuff those movies don't show you. If they did, their zany comedy about a single father finding a baby on his doorstep would quickly become a nightmare inducing horror that would shut down the genitals of any aspiring parent.

Newt Gingrich Profile – Esquire Story on Newt Gingrich – Esquire
She was married to Newt Gingrich for eighteen years, all through his spectacular rise and fall, and here she is in a pair of blue jeans and a paisley shirt, with warm eyes and a big laugh and the kind of chain-smoking habit where the cigarettes burn right down to the filter — but she's quitting, she swears, any day now.

Nikon 1 System Review: 19. Conclusion: Digital Photography Review
Many photographers within Nikon's sizeable user base had been eagerly anticipating the camera giant's move into mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, and a lot of them reacted with disappointment when the curtain parted on the 1 System in late 2011. Despite containing some very interesting technology, the 1 J1/V1 are clearly intended to appeal to upgraders from lower-level compact cameras. Nikon firmly believes that there is a market here, largely untapped, and made up of people who don't like to be bothered by the intricacies of 'serious' photography but just want to be like Ashton Kutcher in the commercials and have fun, and take photographs, and have fun. And did we mention having fun?

The end result of this laudable design philosophy is a pair of rather curious cameras which have a lot to offer (we're hugely impressed by their phase-detection AF performance, and how many other cameras can you think of that allow 60 fps RAW+JPEG capture?) but which in our opinion, fail to wholly address the needs of any class of camera buyer.

Famous Photogs Pose With Their Most Iconic Images | Raw File | Wired.com
The Tank Man of Tienanmen Square. Muhammad Ali standing over Sonny Liston in victory. The portrait of the Afghan Girl on the cover of National Geographic. Many of us can automatically recall these photos in our heads, but far fewer can name the photographers who took them. Even fewer know what those photographers look like.

Tim Mantoani hopes to change that by taking portraits of famous photographers holding their most iconic or favorite photos in his new book Behind Photographs: Archiving Photographic Legends. Mantoani has shot over 150 of these portraits in the last five years, most of which are contained in the book.

J'ai également le projet de mettre au point un ( propulseur gravitationnel ) "sorte d'engin en forme de sphère de ma propre conception capable de se déplacer sans roues ni hélice ni moteur a réaction ou fusée…"j'ai une certaine expérience sur la conception et construction de moteurs fusée a propergol solide".Le procéder tente a contrer la loi de Newton sur la force gravitationnelle . Ce type d'appareil pourrait se déplacer en théorie sur le sol ,dans l'eau ,dans l'air et dans l'espace sans roues ni ailes et sans aucune émanation de gaz . Celui-ci pourrait être totalement silencieux s'il était mis sous vide et ne générerait aucunes pollution…
