Everyone knows that fishing from a boat is superior to wade fishing. You can cover more water, get out farther, land more fish, and when your spouse calls to berate you for spending all your time fishing, there is no easy exit back to the car. Unfortunately, johnboats are cumbersome, canoes tend to tip over, and drift boats are impossibly expensive and require a trailer. The good news is that there’s another option that’s underutilized, accessible, affordable, and gaining popularity around the country: fishing from a kayak.Photographer Chris Funk began kayak fishing as a means to limit the fishing costs mentioned above and is now a member of the Jackson Kayak fishing team. He spends 99 percent of his days on the Chattahoochee River, but he has fished all over the South, including the Gulf Coast and Mobile Bay Delta. For him, catching fish is just one advantage of fishing from a kayak.“The older I get, the more therapeutic it is,” Funk said. “Just the drip of the water off the paddle is soothing. I can get to places no other vessel can get to. It’s just a true joy to put that little plastic boat on the water, paddle it wherever I want to go, and have a good day to myself or with friends.”With major kayak companies like Jackson, Hobie, and Native manufacturing models specifically designed for fishing, accessibility is at an all-time high, and getting better. Funk breaks down the advantages of the fly fishing kayak into three simple categories: simplicity, shallows, and stealth.Lightweight and streamlined, the kayak can get you where you want to go without any extra bells or whistles. Funk loves being able to grab a couple rods, a box of flies, and his paddle and hit the water without having to worry about trailers or gas. Because of the light weight, it is also easy to put into a river where another type of craft would have trouble. “The places that I launch in are my favorite spots. They have no launch so the boat has to be carried,” said Funk.A kayak also rides high on the water, allowing a paddler to maneuver over rocks and access spots that others cannot. Kayaks also make minimal noise on the water and have virtually no wake, allowing you to sneak around without spooking fish.“The kayak is so stealthy that I find I can get closer to my target,” Funk explains. “You’re not going to spook as many fish. I’ve had large bass get underneath my boat almost like I was a log instead of a vessel.”If you want to break into kayak fly fishing, borrow a friend’s boat and head to a lake to get acquainted with the technique. Careful, you may get hooked.
The European Parliament has approved the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) after MEPs made a number of amendments to the proposal.Although the Budgets and Economic Monetary Affairs committees approved the EFSI, a cornerstone of the €315bn ‘Juncker Plan’, MEPs thwarted European Commission plans to cut back on other budgets to fund the vehicle.The Commission had hoped to reduce research and transport investment budgets to fund the EFSI’s guarantee fund, a buffer fund to help reduce the risk of losses to external investors.However, MEPs added legislation that called for budgets to be protected, as well as for the guarantee fund to be alternatively financed and gradually filled until it reaches €8bn size by 2022. Budgets Committee chair Jean Arthuis, a French MEP from the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats in Europe (ALDE) party, said the Commission and Council’s proposal to finance the ‘Juncker Plan’ by cutting other “genuinely European”, trans-national projects was regrettable.“At a time when all member states recognise the need to relaunch investment in Europe, I invite them to directly provision the guarantee, as a token of trust and confidence,” he said. “Today, the Parliament was ambitious and creative. We hope the Council will follow suit, for the collective interest of Europe.”One amendment proposes that the ESFI’s guarantees to third-party investors should be “irrevocable and unconditional”, in order to reassure contributors.Other amendments included ensuring projects financed by the ESFI had a higher risk profile than those available to the European Investment Bank (EIB), thereby making them ineligible for direct EU budget or EIB finance.Further amendments included changes to the investment committee structure and voting rights, as well as ensuring the Parliament retains oversight of the fund.The Commission unveiled the European investment plan in November last year.It will see a €16bn contribution from the EU budget and €5bn from the EIB, with the ESFI issuing bonds to external investors, leveraging the fund to €315bn.Parliament passed the resolution and the mandate to negotiate with the Commission, which will begin on Thursday.The co-rapporteurs were José Manuel Fernandes, a Portuguese MEP from the European People’s Party, and Udo Bullmann, a German MEP for the Social Democrats.The amended agreement will now be voted on in June.European Commission vice-president Jyrki Katainen welcomed the parliamentary vote and said the plan could now enter its final stages.The former Finnish prime minister said arrangements were already being made to ensure EFSI funds were flowing into projects by September.“The Commission will assist the co-legislators during the trilogue negotiations to agree on a compromise text that ensures the EFSI is based on sound, stable and predictable foundations,” he said.

Published on June 3, 2014 at 3:27 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3 Related Stories THREE AND OUT: Syracuse falls in national championship game, loses to Maryland for 3rd time this season Katie Webster entered Syracuse’s locker room with tears in her eyes after losing the national championship game to Maryland. The senior struggled to look up at the group of teammates she’d never play with again. But when she did, what she saw surprised her. All of the underclassmen were crying just as hard. “They wanted (the seniors) to have a national championship,” Webster said. “They had tears in their eyes just like we did. They felt just how we did. They’re going to be coming back hungry to win one for themselves, and even for us.”The senior class leaves Syracuse as the most successful in program history, but without a national championship to highlight its tenure. And while the ultimate goal remains unattained, the past four years have seen Syracuse establish itself in a seemingly untouchable realm of elite women’s lacrosse programs.Before this class, only the 2010 team had reached the final four. This year marked the third time in a row SU appeared in the national semifinals, and its second national championship appearance in three years. The Orange boasted the nation’s two top scorers in Kayla Treanor and Alyssa Murray, and finished with 21 wins.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe disappointment of leaving empty-handed gave the seniors a reason to cry, but the success gave them a reason to reflect on the powerful legacy they’re leaving. “We don’t have any regrets,” departing senior Alyssa Murray said. “We had a historic season for Syracuse. Even though our class isn’t going to be there to experience it, we’re just making building blocks for future teams.”It was Murray that boasted before the season started that this team’s mind-set was “national championship or bust.” It was a bold, yet fair assessment of a season defined by high expectations.And for the most part, the Orange fulfilled them. SU started out the year outscoring Jacksonville and Stetson 46-7 on its opening road trip. When the competition got harder, Syracuse rose to the occasion, beating nine Top 10 teams.SU jumped to the top of the rankings after a 12-9 win over then-No. 1 North Carolina on April 12. It blew out many opponents, but pulled off gritty wins as well.In the final regular season game, Syracuse was down 12-9 to Loyola, but scored three goals in the final 4:46, and two more in overtime to win. The victory solidified the No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament, and the Orange was eliminated in the national championship by the only team ranked higher. “The loss was really hard, it took me a couple days to get over,” Webster said. “… I just started thinking about the positives and all the great times that we had and all the wins that we did have and the history that we made.”Murray said that her first year in the program came after many of the starters had graduated. Almost everyone who got playing time in 2011 was stepping into new roles.Syracuse wasn’t the same elite program that it has since become. Maryland, Northwestern and North Carolina ruled an almost impenetrable landscape. But it took only two years for Syracuse to reach the national championship with a group of players that lacked long-term experience.“It’s really the players who came before them that allowed us to recruit these players,” SU head coach Gary Gait said after his team’s semifinal win over Virginia this year. “It’s really a program that’s put this together to provide this opportunity.” And now, Murray said, it’s her class’ success that will allow Syracuse to continue to recruit the high-level athletes the Orange needs to contend for a national championship every year.In the near future, though, Murray said it will fall on the shoulders of players that have not yet gotten their chance.Players like Erica Bodt, Kelly Cross, Lisa Rogers and Taylor Poplawski can be the next crop of Syracuse scorers, Murray said, but also the group of players that continue to push the Orange program forward in the same way her class did. “We’ve been able to attract really good players, players that are really heavily recruited,” Murray said. “And they’re finding interest in Syracuse … We got good and now everyone wants to come to Syracuse. “It has so much more appeal than it had in the past.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+

BOXING: A buoyant Shaun Mc Shane has targeted a fight in the New Year – as he looks to continue his fine run of form in the ring after his recent impressive victory. Mc Shane won a unanimous points decision against Tyrone fighter Ben Mulligan.Mulligan put on a brave performance but he was outclassed by a determined Mc Shane who controlled the bout from start to finish. Mulligan took big shots from Mc Shane and was rattled during several different stages of the fight – but survived the consistent onslaught from the Donegal man.Mc Shane is now targeting a return to the ring in early January – as he’s keen to continue his march through the rankings.Mc Shane told Donegal Daily, “I trained hard for the Mulligan fight so I was confident, he was strong guy and very durable.“He took a lot of heavy shots that most guys would go down from, but he never gave up he was their to win and I respect that. However, at the same time I knew I was in control, and if I had to go to war then I’d plenty left in the tank.“Overall we’re happy with the result, but we know there is still a lot of work to do.“I’d love to get back in the ring before Christmas, but realistically it will be the New Year before I’m back in action.

Day one of the 2019 Pacific halibut season is in the books, and the reports from Wednesday’s opener weren’t quite as good as expected. A few of the Eureka charter boats made the run straight out, fishing between the 51 and 47 lines, hoping to land on a bunch of hungry halibut that haven’t seen a bait in six months. For the majority of the boats, that didn’t happen. It did however, happen for Marc Schmidt of Coastline Charters.He and his crew had the hot hand and boated three flatties. And …
(Visited 94 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 A rash of recent science articles shows that secular cosmologists have no idea where they are, or why.Ever since cosmologists began invoking occult phenomena in the form of dark matter and dark energy, they have lost their way. If you don’t believe it, look at what they themselves are saying about their current state of knowledge – if it can be called knowledge at all.Dark Matter Just Got Murkier (Live Science): Don Lincoln, a senior scientist at Fermi National Lab, shows that a whiz at math and physics can be clueless when it comes to philosophy. This is a good article to lead our list, because he shows the history of dark matter hypotheses, ending with “But, in the end, we still don’t know.”The search for dark matter (Phys.org): Here’s another piece that reviews the long hunt for the elusive whatever. “Without dark matter, it’s possible that we would not exist,” one physicist says. The article talks about huge, expensive detectors that have all failed to find it. Is this progress by elimination, or a wrong track?What Is Dark Matter? Prime Candidate Gets Profiled (Space.com): Mike Wall thinks the theoretical “axion” (another bit of mysterious unknown stuff “which has yet to be discovered”) may qualify as the next candidate for dark matter. Why? Because all the others have been ruled out; searches for other candidates have “come up empty.”As hunt for sterile neutrino continues, mystery deepens (Phys.org): “Physicists speculated that the hypothesized particles might hold a key to better understanding of the evolution of the universe and why it is mostly made of matter and not antimatter.” But the plot thickens: based on experiments with a new detector, “scientists have ruled out a large portion of the range of possible properties the hypothesized particles were predicted to be hiding in.”If Dark Matter Can’t Be Seen, What About Ghosts? (NPR): Adam Frank compares belief in dark matter to belief in ghosts. “It’s still early in the game but, at some point, if nothing is found, scientists may have to re-evaluate their ‘belief’ in dark matter,” he concludes. “In that case, they will have to come up with other explanations for the bumps we know we’re hearing in the night.”New theory of gravity might explain dark matter (Science Daily): Erik Verlinde from Amsterdam is trying to get away from the need for dark matter by inventing a new theory of gravity. Is he on the brink of a scientific revolution or just whistling in the dark? He’s concerned that traditional gravity and quantum physics are incompatible. “Many theoretical physicists like me are working on a revision of the theory, and some major advancements have been made,” he says. “We might be standing on the brink of a new scientific revolution that will radically change our views on the very nature of space, time and gravity.”Cosmological mystery solved by largest ever map of voids and superclusters (Phys.org): What the headline gives the conclusion takes away. While new maps of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) are consistent with Einstein’s relativity, “Our results resolve one long-standing cosmological puzzle, but doing so has deepened the mystery of a very unusual ‘Cold Spot’ in the CMB,” an astronomer says. “….the Cold Spot mystery remains unexplained.”Researcher presents work to understand formation of the universe (Phys.org): Just promises, promises: “If the predictions and the data match, it’ll be a further beautiful confirmation of the theory of general relativity, whereas if they don’t, it could be a tell-tale sign that we need a different theory.”The universe is expanding at an accelerating rate—or is it? (Phys.org): This article presents the shocking possibility that dark energy may be a fiction – a wrong interpretation from too small a sample of supernovas. Now that a new sample ten times larger doesn’t show it, do three laureates have to give back their Nobel Prizes?Rethinking the arrow of time (Science Magazine): Cosmologists aren’t sure what “now” means. They wonder why we remember the past but not the future. This book review indicates problems with the conventional understanding of time as the direction of increasing entropy. The reviewer likes the book, but says, “The significance of ‘now’ and how time, as well as space, might have been created by the Big Bang is more suggestive than emphatic, in my opinion.”Nature’s Special EditionOn September 29, Nature published a special supplement about dark matter and dark energy. They make the world’s leading journal look like it dabbles in the occult: lots of toil and trouble, but so far only bubble.The dark universe by Richard Hodson (Nature): Dark matter is still a mystery, but “Explaining dark energy is even tougher.”The dark universe: 4 big questions by Neil Savage (Nature): And the questions are: (1) Is there a dark matter particle? (2) Does dark matter interact with anything? (3) Does the cosmological constant explain dark energy? (4) What will eventually happen to the universe.Axion alert! Exotic-particle detector may miss out on dark matter by Davide Castelvecchi (Nature): This is about a “hunt in the dark” for a particle that depends on inflation theory.Dark matter: What’s the matter? by Jeff Hecht (Nature): Reviewing all the negative results of searches, he says, “The leading theory of dark matter is running out of room to hide.”Dark energy: Staring into darkness by Stephen Battersby (Nature): What do you see when you stare into the dark? Nothing except what you imagine. Battersby speaks of “An enduring puzzle… an energetic mystery…. dark futures” and other unknowns despite “a burst of ideas”. If dark energy exists, does it change over time? Answer the first question first.Revealing the unseen Universe by Mark Zastrow (Nature): This article reviews the latest hardware trying to find gravitational waves and high-energy neutrinos. Those phenomena at least have some empirical basis.Interview with Brian Schmidt (Nature): Schmidt shared a Nobel Prize in 2011 for the “discovery” of dark energy. He’s pretty confident of his finding (90%, he estimates), but he can’t rule out “unknown unknowns.” He adds, “But science is about getting out and occasionally being wrong, it’s what we’re there for.”Interview with George Smoot (Nature): Smoot won a Nobel Prize in 2006 for finding tiny variations in the CMB that were interpreted as confirmation of the big bang. He’s asked about gravitational waves, not dark matter or energy.Empirical UpsetsNews outlets got all excited recently about results of a new sky survey involving the Hubble Space Telescope and other instruments.Observable universe contains two trillion galaxies, 10 times more than previously thought (Science Daily)The Universe Has 10 Times More Galaxies Than Scientists Thought (Live Science)Our universe contains 10 times more galaxies than we thought (New Scientist)The estimate comes from new mathematical models, not from actual counting. Still, it indicates how far off scientists can be about what is visible, let alone what is dark. “It boggles the mind that over 90 percent of the galaxies in the universe have yet to be studied,” Christopher Conselice, a professor of astrophysics at the University of Nottingham in the U.K., who led the study, said in a statement. “Who knows what interesting properties we will find when we observe these galaxies with the next generation of telescopes.”“Hello, Dr Cosmologist. What do you know?” Answer: “Not much. I don’t even know what I don’t know, or even what is knowable. But cosmic evolution is a fact!”
[maxbutton id=”10″][maxbutton id=”11″] Want to use a LUT in your color grading process? Download these free film print emulation LUTS and learn how to use them in your video projects.If you’ve ever wanted to know what a LUT is and how to make the most of LUTS in your color grading, then this podcast from the three Coloristos (Jason Myres, Juan Salvo, and Josh Petok) will provide you with a detailed low-down.A LUT (Lookup Table) is essentially the modifier between two images, the original image and the displayed image, based on a mathematical formula. There are different types of LUTS – viewing, transform, calibration, 1D and 3D. The three colorists go into a lot of detail on all them.The main concern of the Coloristos is the propagation of the idea (online) that simply slapping a LUT on your footage is a silver bullet for creating a great looking grade. Real color grading is far more complex than that.One note of caution for using a LUT is that you need to know what the color space and input level was intended to be for that particular LUT, and the type of shot it was intended for.Download Free Film Print Emulation LUTSOne of the subjects the colorists mention is film print emulation LUTS – those that would emulate the final printed image as displayed on the screen at the end of the film print process. Those LUTS are now also being used on digital images to emulate the look of screened print, rather than actually using it to ensure the grade would look the same on a printed image. Either way, they’re pretty popular online and several people are offering them for free…Tom Majerski is offering two film print emulation LUTS for use with Blackmagic Design Cinema and Pocket Cameras (examples in the video above). The first LUT comes in two flavors – a vibrant version and a low saturation version of a ‘Technicolor Process 4’ look.The second LUT is loosely based on a Vision 3 500T film stock and designed to supply “soft and natural skin tones.” Tom says, “For Best results, remember to select BMD Film Color Space and perfect the white balance and tint before applying the LUT.” You can also download another ‘Kodak’ LUT from Andres De La Cruz over on the Lift Gamma Gain Forum.For more film print emulation LUTS and a tutorial on how to apply a LUT in DaVinci Resolve, check out this previous PremiumBeat post.Applying a LUT to LOG FootageIf you’re trying to apply a LUT in Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Avid Media Composer 7 or DaVinci Resolve 10, then this step by step guide from AbleCine is the one-stop shop you need.In a second post from AbleCine, you can download 13 separate LUTS for working with Canon LOG footage from the C100, C300 and C500 cameras. In combination with the tutorial above, you should be good to go for transforming your LOG dailies into edit ready footage.“We’ve taken the Canon LUTs and modified them for use in various programs. Additionally, we’ve thrown in some versions with our popular AbelCine scene files applied. Plus, we’ve made both legal and full range versions available for each.”[maxbutton id=”12″]Another place to create LUTS for free is the Arri Alexa LUT Generator website, which allows you to set the details of the mathematical transformation that is the Look Up Table.
