Luce App Tracks the Fine Details of Film Photography

Digital images today are captured with an EXIF meta data layer that stores pertinent facts about the shot so that photographers can study, report and refine their technique. Analog photography (somewhat by definition) remains largely under-serviced by this kind of high-tech service. Luce, an upstart iOS app—from developers Don Chia and his partner, Diego—offers a centralized space for analog photographers to log image data while …

We sit down with Baker Hostetler’s Katherine Lowry, and Puerto Rico defense attorney Diego Alcala to get a better understanding of how chatbots work, and what value they can bring from legal practices ranging from BigLaw Bankruptcy practice to a solo attorney’s criminal law practice.

Forza Ducati! The Multistrada reimagined as a cafe racer

We’re always impressed when a custom motorcycle design is so cohesive, it could easily be a factory effort. Or, at the very least, it has us wishing the factory would produce something similar. This first-gen Ducati Multistrada illustrates my point wonderfully. The original is anything but cohesive—but somehow Italian shop North East Custom has managed to beat it into shape, producing this fresh take on a contemporary cafe racer. Based in Padua, Italy, North East Custom is manned by brothe...

Willem Dafoe on ‘My Hindu Friend’ and Working With Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson and Lars Von Trier [Interview]

When the term character actor is used in film discourse, Willem Dafoe is one of the most common actors to come to the collective mind of cinephiles. However, he is, and always has been, a leading man who simply isn’t deterred by the size, or lack thereof, of a given role to which he connects. The Wisconsin native could turn even the most seemingly banal character into something singularly mesmerizing. This intuition to excavate the humanity out of the roles he chooses is part of what makes D...

40% of Muslim students surveyed in California say they’ve been bullied at school, report finds

Ahlam Elabed’s son has been called a “terrorist,” mocked and humiliated at Redlands High School because he is Muslim, she said. Her son’s classmates mocked him with chants of “Allahu Akbar” and pulled his pants down in PE class, Elabed said, speaking Wednesday, Oct. 16, at the Council for American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) Anaheim office. CAIR’s California chapter released its biennial report on bullying of Muslim students on campus, which showed that Elabed’s son was not alone. The report, “Sin...

The best surfing in Guatemala

When surfers think of Central America, Guatemala is often not even on the list. The focus of most travelers to Guatemala is on the colorful villages and stunning landscapes of the country’s mountainous interior. That is about to change as surfers recognize the incredible, consistent swell that graces Guatemala’s Pacific coastline, and as travelers of all stripes discover the simple charms of the tiny fishing village of El Paredon. It’s off the beaten path of surf travel. Photo: Robin ...

This action photography is brought to you by Allan.Don't worry, we are not neglecting Diego. I just didn't have any good shots of him, and I wanted to get this post up. Kai and Cookie are little devils. Kai has gotten out of the yard three times in the last four days. One minute she's in the yard, and then she's in the street. We've got ourselves a jumper. We haven't seen her do it, but it's the only way out. We're working on it.We've known that new dogs learn from the rest of the pack. ...

you're not going to believe this... introducing cookie!

I fell in love with Cookie the first time I saw her outside the library. I knew her current people wouldn't keep her. Yada yada yada, today she joined our pack. Cookie is a tiny slip of a thing, smaller than Kai, and very skinny. She has not had a lick of training. We haven't had a dog starting at square one in a long time! I have no doubt that with patience, consistency, and the example of her packmates, she'll come along very quickly.We took her home this morning, first stopping at an e...

pupdate: diego progress report

Diego seems to be doing all right. He's able to hobble around on three legs pretty well. The incision looks good, and so far he's leaving it alone, so we don't have to make him even more uncomfortable by putting a giant cone around his giant head. I say he seems to be all right because he's so quiet and sad. He can stand on three legs to eat his food, and he hobbles around the yard on-leash, but getting from standing up to lying down is a nightmare. It can take him 30 or 45 minutes to figur...

Diego Maradona

Asif Kapadia, the director of Senna and Amy, has directed a documentary film about footballer Diego Maradona, one of the best to ever lace up the cleats. Having never won a major tournament, ailing football giant SSC Napoli had criminally underachieved. Their fanatical support was unequalled in both passion and size. None was more feared. But how they ached for success… On 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee and for seven years all hell broke loose. The w...

pupdate: our temporary tripod

Diego is walking on three legs, a result of a ruptured knee ligament (ACL). Surgery is scheduled for Friday. Our first dog, Gypsy, had the same injury. It's not uncommon in large dogs. In those days, surgery was new and experimental; we borrowed a car to see a surgeon in a nearby suburb. Gypsy had a rough recovery, which included a post-operative infection, but she came through and lived another two years. These days, surgery is fairly routine, and the good folks at the North Island Animal Hosp...
