Save 20% on these sketchbooks that can improve your art with pages of lessons

Every artist, budding or established, has a sketchbook. They're great for practice and portable, so you can follow your muse anywhere. But if you're just starting off, let's face it: Those blank pages don't offer much guidance. The How to Draw series of sketchbooks are a well-designed alternative to rote linework or idle doodling, incorporating art lessons that let you fill up that white space more productively. Think of these as art textbooks that you can actually draw inside of. Each one fi...

Scientists just drilled the deepest hole ever in western Antarctica, going 2 kilometers down through the ice to study how it's melting

A team of British scientists has successfully drilled the deepest hole ever in Western Antarctica. The hole is about 2.1 kilometers deep — about four times taller than the Sears Tower. It took an 11-person team from the British Antarctic Survey 63 hours of continuous drilling to reach that depth. They brought sediment samples up to the surface, which they hope will yield new information about how quickly ice is melting beneath the West Antarctic ice sheet. After nearly three days ...

Prosecution of UK News Photographer Collapses After Recording Disproves Police Testimony (slashdot)

Slashdot reader Andy Smith writes: Slashdot reported last September how I was arrested while standing in a field near a road accident, as I photographed the scene for a newspaper. I was initially given a police warning for "obstruction", but the warning was then cancelled and I was prosecuted for resisting arrest and breach of the peace. These are serious charges and I was facing a prison sentence. Fortunately we had one very strong piece of evidence: A recording of my arrest. Not only did the r...

After Nearly 60 Years, This Man’s Dream Came True

Oftentimes a project starts with a spark of inspiration. For enthusiasts in the ’50s, probably no single inspiration held more sway than Rod & Custom’s Dream Truck. For those of you who don’t know, Dream Truck was a pet project of Rod & Custom editor Spence Murray from late 1953 to 1958. His objective was to showcase the creativity and capability of the industry. It was a novel project; taking cues from Rod & Custom readers, fellow R&C editor Lynn Wineland drafted a basic design that accompanied...

Police Allegedly Arrest UK News Photographer For Standing In A Field

Long-time Slashdot reader Andy Smith, a Scotland-based news photographer, writes: I'm a press photographer. Slashdot has previously covered how the police used underhanded tactics to seize some of my work photos. But that was far from the end of the story. Several months of harassment culminated in me being arrested for standing in a field, something protected by law here in Scotland.

Ask Slashdot: How Would You Handle A Bogus Copyright Infringement Notice?

Very long-time Slashdot reader Andy Smith writes: Yesterday I received an email from my ISP telling me that I had illegally downloaded an animated film called Cubo and the Two Strings. I'd never heard of the film and hadn't downloaded it. The accusation came from a government-approved group called Get It Right From a Genuine Site. I contacted that group and was directed to their FAQ. Worryingly, there's no way to correct a false report. The entire FAQ is written from the position that either you...
