first_imgJorge BarreraAPTN National NewsAt least 13 demonstrators from Canada, including five from British Columbia, have so far been arrested for “illegal protest activity” related to a Native American-led movement aimed at stopping construction of a pipeline through North Dakota, according to statistics released by the Morton County Sherriff’s Department.A total of 438 people have been arrested since August in relation to the ongoing movement against the Dakota Access Pipeline LLC construction in North Dakota, according to the Sheriff’s Department.Click here for a full timeline of the conflict at Standing RockThe arrested demonstrators come from 43 states, Washington D.C. and Canada, revealing the breadth of support for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, which is hosting a large camp on its reservation, in its battle against the pipeline which it says poses a threat to the area’s water supply and has led to the destruction of burial grounds and sacred sites.The Standing Rock Sioux also have deep support among First Nation communities in Canada. Many First Nation leaders have travelled and continue to travel to Standing Rock.Five individuals from Canada were arrested on Oct. 27, the day when state and county police, along with National Guard troops, moved with force against the demonstrators, known as water protectors, who had been launching rolling blockades in an effort to slow down pipeline construction, according to the Sheriff’s Department’s stats.All those arrested from Canada that day were charged with “maintaining public nuisance.”Four of the five arrested were also charged with “engaging in a riot” and “conspiracy to endanger by fire.”The Oct. 27 arrests do not include a reference to a home province.The Sheriff’s Department’s stats show four demonstrators from British Columbia were arrested on Oct. 22 and charged with “criminal trespass” and “engaging in a riot.”A fifth individual from B.C. and another from Alberta were arrested on Oct. 10 and charged with the same, according to the stats.On Sept. 14, two demonstrators from Canada, one from Saskatchewan and another from the Northwest Territories, were arrested and charged with “criminal trespass” and “conspiracy to obstruct government function.”People who have faced police action on the frontline say they’ve been put into cages resembling dog kennels once they’ve been arrested.Local and State police used armoured cars to clear a barricade on Hwy 1806 on Oct. 27.Police, backed by Humvees and armoured personnel carriers, have also used sound cannons, bean-bag rounds, pepper spray and tear gas against unarmed demonstrators.The Standing Rock Tribe has called for prayer and peaceful resistance on the frontlines of the demonstrations.The National Congress of American Indians, which resembles the Assembly of First Nations in Canada, has called the actions of law enforcement against the demonstrators as “shocking.” The congress called on the Department of Justice to step in after the events of Oct. 27 which saw over 100 people arrested.“The NCAI community is at a loss trying to grasp the events of (Oct. 27’s) attack on protectors gathered to defend water rights, lands, and sacred places. We are working closely with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe as they strive for peace during this difficult time,” said the congress in a statement. “We will not stand for the continued violation of our First Amendment rights and Tribal Sovereign rights. Enough is enough.”Only one demonstrator has been arrested with a firearm throughout the months-long conflict. Red Fawn Fallis was charged with attempted murder after she was arrested on Oct. 27. Fallis allegedly fired a .38 revolver as she struggled with two police officers. The bullets were fired into the dirt near an officer’s knee.The Morton County Sheriff’s Department says law enforcement is trying to keep demonstrators off private lands owned by DAPL for its pipeline construction.The Standing Rock Sioux say the lands are part of its treaty territory.Once built, the $3.78 billion oil pipeline will pump about 500,000 barrel of oil per day from the Bakken shale fields in North Dakota through South Dakota and Iowa to Illinois where it will connect with existing energy infrastructure.jbarrera@aptn.calast_img read more

first_imgKolkata: A huge quantity of explosive materials was seized from Bankura again on Tuesday night. Two persons carrying the explosives fled the scene seeing police personnel.Later, police seized the explosive materials and started a probe. Earlier, within the last two weeks, the state Criminal Investigation Department (CID) had seized huge hauls of explosive materials based on specific information. According to sources, on Tuesday night police personnel from Saltora police station were performing ‘naka’ checking near Murlu village. While checking vehicles, police personnel saw two persons carrying a sack full of something. Seeing the police checking, the duo suspiciously changed their route. This created curiosity among the sleuths. They followed the duo through the forest area. After advancing a few meters, police personnel saw several sacks dumped at a place but could not locate any person there. After opening the sacks, they were stunned to see gelatin sticks (power gel) inside. Immediately, senior police officials were informed. The information was also passed on to CID as they had earlier made several raids and successfully seized huge quantities of explosive materials such as gelatin sticks, electric detonators and ammonium nitrate. During the search and seizure procedure, it was found that there were 1,127 gelatin sticks inside multiple sacks. Apart from this, sleuths have arrested a person identified as Ghanashyam Chakraborty during ‘naka’ checking at Kotulpur in Bankura and seized 10 crude bombs. During checking of vehicles, police noticed Chakraborty moving suspiciously inside a bus going to Bishnupur from Arambagh. When his bag was opened, the crude bombs were found. Earlier on Sunday, a truck bearing Jharkhand registration number was intercepted in the evening at Beliatore. CID and police officials present at the spot had asked for documents from the driver. Later during search, sleuths discovered that the truck was loaded with explosive materials. The driver and the owner of the truck, identified as Nishant Kumar, were arrested immediately. After preliminary interrogation, sleuths suspect that the explosives were headed for Birbhum district. During search operation, sleuths seized 97,500 electric detonators, 6,250 kg gelatin sticks and 11,450 kg ammonium nitrate from the truck. Before Sunday, a CID team had seized a huge quantity of explosive materials from Saltora on March 13. The explosive materials were stored inside a warehouse at Kastora village of Saltora in Bankura. Sleuths seized 52,500 pieces of electric detonators, 106 cartons of gelatin sticks and 133 sacks of ammonium nitrate along with an abandoned SUV and a bike from there. The explosive materials were procured from Orissa, Telangana and Jharkhand.last_img read more

first_imgDarjeeling: It was both work and play for Trinamool Congress Supremo Mamata Banerjee in the Queen of the Hills on Thursday. Darjeeling, which came into existence as a health sanatorium, provided her the much required respite from her hectic campaign schedule.Banerjee has been on the campaign trail since April 3, covering the constituencies of North Bengal. She even managed to make a campaign trip to Dhubri, a border town in Assam. She has been addressing two rallies per day on an average, travelling from one venue to the other by helicopter and sometimes by road, despite occasional inclement weather. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaAn exhausted Banerjee arrived at Darjeeling on Wednesday evening. This time, as she is in the town for campaigning, she is not staying at the Richmond Hill Government Guest House and is putting up at The Retreat on Chowrasta instead. The hotel has been handpicked as the rooms offer unobstructed views of Mount Kanchenjunga, which is very close to her heart. The day started on a clear note on Thursday, with the majestic Kanchenjunga in the backdrop. Banerjee made full use of the beautiful morning and went for her routine walk. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayWalking down from Chowrasta to the District library, up Robertson Road and then back to the Mall through Nehru Road, she exchanged greetings and even asked the shopkeepers of roadside stalls as to how their business is faring. While crossing the Mall, she inquired about the progress of work on the ongoing facelift work of Chowrasta. The election campaign rally also went well for the TMC supremo. The crowd was impressive and people cheered her attempts at addressing them in Nepali. “Tapai hery kosto cha?” (How are you) was her opening lines in Nepali as the mammoth crowd cheered her on. She even worked up the crowd asking questions on what the saffron brigade had done for the Hills, with the crowd answering “nothing” in unison.last_img read more

The property market’s collapse in 2008 pushed the economy into recession and the government needed help from other eurozone countries to rescue its banks.Spain’s government said in a statement that it valued the new rating because it was recognition of the government’s commitment to reform.“These reforms will solidify the economic recovery, which will help to contain the deficit and permit net job creation this year,” the statement said.Although unemployment is still near 26 per cent, Spain’s economy is out of recession and government borrowing rates have dropped.

first_imgAutolib : les écologistes dénoncent un “projet faussement environnemental”Dimanche, a été lancé à Paris le projet Autolib, un service de location de voitures électriques en libre-service. Mais les écologistes ne sont pas convaincus par une démarche qu’ils jugent “faussement écologique”.Le dimanche 1er octobre, le service de location de voitures électriques Autolib a été lancé à Paris. Pour l’heure en face de test, le système sera accessible au public dès le 5 décembre. Au moins 250 véhicules devraient alors être disponibles. Et d’ici à l’été prochain, le parc devrait être composé de quelque 2.000 véhicules électriques. Mais ce projet censé contribuer au déploiement des transports verts en Ile-de-France ne convainc pas les écologistes. Dans un communiqué rapporté par l’AFP, les élus EELV (Europe Ecologie-Les Verts) parlent d’une “fausse bonne idée” et assurent que les voitures du groupe Bolloré n’apportent “aucun avantage environnemental”. “Les écologistes dénoncent un projet faussement environnemental ainsi que son coût très élevé. Cette fausse bonne idée ne fera qu’ajouter des véhicules automobiles individuels dans la chaîne des transports, en contradiction avec le Plan de Déplacement Urbain de la région qui vise à réduire le trafic automobile” déplorent-t-ils avant de pointer du doigt le “montage financier de cette opération”.Un projet difficile à rentabiliser D’après EELV, “chacune des 46 communes participantes paye 50.000 euros par station, soit environ 25 millions d’euros pour la seule ville de Paris. Selon Bolloré lui-même il faudra patienter 7 ans avant que le projet soit rentable et seulement si 80.000 abonnés utilisent le service au moins deux fois par jour”, souligne le communiqué.Les écologistes plaident en faveur d’une réduction du nombre de voitures plutôt que pour le développement des véhicules électriques qui contrairement à ce que laisse imaginer le “mythe”, ne représentent pas une “solution unique, quasi magique, pour combattre le réchauffement climatique”.Le 4 octobre 2011 à 17:04 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgWASHINGTON — Below is a press release from Congressman Seth Moulton’s Office:[Last week], the House Armed Services Committee passed the National Defense Authorization Act. It includes a number of locally-important measures Representative Seth Moulton has championed as a member of the committee. The bill will head to the floor of the House for a vote in July.“In order to compete and win against rising powers like Russia and China, Congress needs to invest in cutting-edge technologies that strengthen our national and economic security. That means hard choices and smart investments when it comes to defense spending,” Moulton said. “Our region has a lot of skin in the game–more than 200,000 people in New England work on defense projects funded by Congress. So the effort to make America safer and stronger by developing a 21st Century national security strategy, is also an effort to deliver for families in our region.”The National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, sets the funding levels, expenditures and authorizations for the Department of Defense. The House and Senate Armed Services Committee write the NDAA for their respective chambers of Congress. The House’s and Senate’s versions are then negotiated into a final bill which is sent to the president’s desk to be signed into law.This week The Military Times reported that the NDAA “is seen as one of the few sure things in an increasingly divided Congress. It has passed annually for more than five decades.”Moulton worked to ensure this year’s National Defense Authorization Act included the following locally-important items:FUNDING FOR THE GE ITEP PROGRAMThe FY 2020 NDAA includes full funding for the next installment of funding for GE’s Improved Turbine Engine Program (ITEP), which makes a new generation of helicopter engines for the military’s Blackhawk and Apache helicopters. Moulton has worked hard to secure funding for the ITEP program since his first days in Congress. Earlier this year, the federal government announced the GE Riverworks plant landed a half-billion dollar contract to build ITEP prototypes, the first stage towards full production. The Armed Services Committee-passed version of the NDAA includes a new installment of more than $200 million.NEW INVESTMENTS AT MIT’S LINCOLN LABORATORYThe MIT Lincoln Laboratory is a 75-acre campus on the eastern perimeter of Hanscom Air Force Base. It is designated as a federally-funded Research and Development Center for the Department of Defense which means it researches and develops new technology that supports several national security and public safety missions. This year’s NDAA paves the way for new multi-year investments in improvements at the labs that will guarantee it remains a world-leader in developing defense technologies.NEXT GENERATION MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEMSSince the invention of radar at MIT, Massachusetts has been home to a large contingent of employers who develop missile and radar guidance systems. Moulton secured funding for the Missile Defense Agency’s Command and Control, Battle Management, & Communications (C2BMC) program as well as investments in a new generation of missile defense sensors that are being developed in the state. These sensors will be a key part of a next generation deterrence strategy that will protect American lives and interests around the world from hostile nations.ACADEMIC RESEARCH PROJECTSThis year’s NDAA contains additional funding for several research programs on cybersecurity and drone technology. Northeastern University is leading the nation on this front. At a speech earlier this year at the Hudson Institute, Moulton outlined his view on the next generation of arms control the country will need to counter Russia and China. He pointed out that America should negotiate new arms control treaties for drones and other advanced technologies while it has a competitive advantage. Cutting-edge research conducted at Northeastern helps advance that discussion.$10M FOR RESEARCH ON ENERGY RESILIENCE AND PROTECTING WARFIGHTERSMoulton secured additional funding for energy resiliency research to ensure that the military has energy sources and power distribution that will help protect the grid from cyber attacks and other threats. Moulton also successfully included funding for a unique collaboration between Natick and UMASS Lowell to engineer better technologies to protect soldiers, including better body armor and more lightweight and thermally responsive materials.HACKING 4 DEFENSEHacking 4 Defense teaches college students across the nation about a specific problem the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community faces, and then challenges them to develop prototypes that could solve the problem. The government can select prototypes for future development. Moulton helped secure $5 million in additional funding for the program in the Committee-passed version of the NDAA. By applying private sector approaches to solving government problems, Moulton believes Hacking 4 Defense will deliver on its goal to solve national security challenges faster.US NAVAL SEA CADETS CORPSThe US Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a Navy-run program that promotes an interest and skill in naval disciplines, teaches life skills, and provides leadership lessons to American students aged 13 through the completion of high school. Moulton pushed the committee to increase funding for the program above the president’s budget request.According to a 2015 study from the Donahue Institute for Economy and Public Policy Research at UMass the defense industry creates more than 200,000 jobs at more than 4,000 employers throughout New England.Moulton has used his seat on the House Armed Services Committee to make sure the nation is making smart investments in next generation arms and technology. He has made a nationwide call for Congress to use the NDAA and other debates to define a next generation of defense policy that invests in cutting-edge technologies so America can keep its competitive defense and economic edge in the world.(NOTE: The above press release is from Congressman Seth Moulton’s Office.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

first_imgWe tend to assume that planets orbit stars on more-or-less circular paths, but that’s not always the case – even Earth swings into a more oval orbit every now and then. But that’s got nothing on HR 5183 b, a gas giant exoplanet that astronomers have now found to be on an extremely eccentric, egg-shaped orbit.Weighing in at about three times the mass of Jupiter, HR 5183 b circles its star once every 45 to 100 years. But it’s the path it takes that makes it such an oddball – if it was in our own solar system, it would get as close to the Sun as the asteroid belt, just past Mars, before whipping out beyond the orbit of Neptune.”This planet is unlike the planets in our solar system, but more than that, it is unlike any other exoplanets we have discovered so far,” says Sarah Blunt, first author of the study. “Other planets detected far away from their stars tend to have very low eccentricities, meaning that their orbits are more circular. The fact that this planet has such a high eccentricity speaks to some difference in the way that it either formed or evolved relative to the other planets.” The team says that the most plausible scenario is that the planet inherited this eccentricity from a long-lost sibling. Basically, for it to get this out of whack it must have been given a gravitational kick by another planet of about the same size. But despite their best efforts, the astronomers couldn’t locate any such planet, leading them to believe that it must have been ejected out of the system.The new world was discovered by the California Planet Search project, using data gathered by the Lick, Keck and McDonald Observatories since the 1990s. It was found using the radial velocity method, which watches stars closely and looks for the telltale “wobbles” that indicate an orbiting planet is tugging on it.Unfortunately this kind of observation usually takes decades to notice a pattern, particularly if the planet’s orbit is long. Taking up to a century to complete one trip, HR 5183 b might have gone unnoticed – but luckily its extreme eccentricity sped up the process.”This planet spends most of its time loitering in the outer part of the solar system in this highly eccentric orbit, then it starts to accelerate in and does a slingshot around its star,” says Andrew Howard, leader of the California Planet Search and an author of the study. “We detected this slingshot motion. We saw the planet come in and now it’s on its way out. That creates such a distinctive signature that we can be sure that this is a real planet, even though we haven’t seen a complete orbit.”The research was published in the Astronomical Journal. An animation of the odd orbit can be seen below. This animation compares the eccentric orbit of HR 5183 b to the more circular orbits of the planets in our own solar system.W. M.

first_imgInitial Unemployment Dip But Remain Elevated April 19, 2012 403 Views First time claims for unemployment insurance remained over 380,000 for the second straight week for the week ended April 14, the “”Labor Department “”: reported Thursday, the highest levels of the year. [IMAGE]According to the report there were 386,000 initial claims, down from the revised 388,000 one week earlier The prior week’s report was adjusted upward by 8,000.Economists had expected initial claims would decrease to 365,000. Continuing claims, reported on a one-week lag, increased 26,000 to 3,297,000 for the week ended April 7, the first increase in six weeks. The previous week’s report of 3,251,000 individuals receiving benefits was revised up to 3,371,000. Continuing claims data though are highly volatile, affected not only by hiring but by individuals who lose benefits because they stop looking for work.The Labor Department routinely revises data in this report. For each of the previous four weeks, the initially reported tally of first time claims was revised upward.[COLUMN_BREAK]The four-week moving average for initial claims jumped to 374,750, up 5,500, the highest level since the end of January. The four week average for continuing claims dropped 21,500 to 3,317,750.Initial claims ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô despite some bumps ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô had been slowly trending downward but sizable increase two weeks ago ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô 26,000 – recalls a similar trend in early 2011 when first time claims began to increase after a slow, steady decline. Coupled with the report showing a disappointing increase in payroll jobs, the initial claims data suggest excruciatingly slow labor market recovery may have stalled.This report covers the same “”reference”” week used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in compiling the monthly employment situation report. The employment report for April will be released May 4.The number of people collecting benefits under all unemployment insurance programs, reported on a two-week lag, fell 187,807 to 6,765,080. That tally though includes data from non-seasonally adjusted reports making conclusions less certain.It also reflects new caps on the duration of unemployment benefits enacted when Congress approved the extension of the payroll tax suspension.

first_img This undated photo released by the Broward Sheriff’s Office shows Robert Allen, the third suspect in the shooting death of South Florida rap star XXXTentacion. He was arrested in rural Georgia on Wednesday, July 25, 2018. (Broward Sheriff’s Office via AP) 3rd suspect arrested in slaying of rapper XXXTentacion FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – The third of four suspects in the shooting death of emerging South Florida rap star XXXTentacion was arrested in rural Georgia at a relative’s house, authorities said Thursday.The U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force took Robert Allen, 22, of Fort Lauderdale into custody Wednesday. He was booked into jail in Dodge County, Georgia, and is being held without bond on a warrant from Broward County, Florida. Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright confirmed the arrest.Allen and three other men are accused of killing XXXTentacion (ex-ex-ex-ten-ta-see-YAWN) in June. The 20-year-old rap star, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, was fatally shot as he left a motorcycle dealership. Officials said a struggle ensued when the rapper’s sports car was blocked by another vehicle, two masked gunmen approached and XXXTentacion was shot multiple times. The gunmen fled with a Louis Vuitton bag containing $50,000.XXXTentacion, who sported dreadlocks and facial tattoos, was a platinum-selling rising star who tackled issues including prejudice and depression in his songs. He also drew criticism over bad behaviour and multiple arrests, including charges that he severely beat and abused his girlfriend.Last week, a grand jury in Fort Lauderdale indicted Allen along with three others — Dedrick Williams, 22; Michael Boatwright, 22 and Trayvon Newsome, 20 — with first-degree murder and armed robbery charges. Williams and Boatwright are also in custody while Newsome remains at large.Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives received a Crime Stoppers tip last Friday with Allen’s possible location, a news release said. The fugitive task force followed up on the lead, and Allen was arrested at his sister’s home in Eastman, Georgia.An attorney for Allen isn’t listed on jail records. An arraignment for Williams, who investigators believe was the getaway vehicle’s driver, is scheduled for Monday and his attorney has said he will plead not guilty. Boatwright entered a not guilty plea Wednesday, according to court records.Witnesses have told police Boatwright and Newsome were the apparent gunmen although, under Florida law, all four men can face murder charges because they were involved in some way.According to a detective’s affidavit filed in Boatwright’s case — a document that has since been sealed — Allen was with Williams when the two men visited the Riva Motor Sports motorcycle shop in Deerfield Beach just after XXXTentacion and a friend went inside. The affidavit says the rapper earlier that day visited a Bank of America branch and withdrew $50,000 in $100 bills.The suspect identified as Williams purchased a black neoprene mask, according to investigators, and then both men left the store and entered a vehicle later identified as a blue 2017 Dodge Journey. It was this vehicle that authorities say was used to block the car driven by XXXTentacion before the shooting. The Journey was crashed about three hours after the slaying and nearby surveillance video showed several men flee, including Newsome and Allen. Boatwright’s fingerprint was found inside.The Journey had been rented by a friend of Williams’, according to the affidavit. The woman who rented it said Boatwright and Allen — whom she knew as “Big Rob” — were present as well. Allen is listed in jail records as weighing 300 pounds (136 kilograms), much larger than the other three suspects.Williams later told police he was with others at the motorcycle shop but did not know in advance they intended to rob the rapper.“Williams stated that he wanted to tell the truth … Williams stated he was fearful of being labeled a snitch when he went to prison,” the affidavit says.Later, police said Williams’ girlfriend told them he had told her he was involved but that it was Boatwright and Newsome who carried out the actual robbery and slaying. Police also said they found cellphone data on Boatwright’s phone indicating it was near the motorcycle shop at the time of the killing.___Frisaro reported from Miami.center_img by Curt Anderson And Freida Frisaro, The Associated Press Posted Jul 26, 2018 6:02 am PDT Last Updated Jul 26, 2018 at 1:41 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more

was still something more they wanted an acknowledgment that their union meant the same as everyone else’s On Friday the Supreme Court found that it did ordering all 50 states to recognize gay marriage And Kubli and McElreath’s first reaction was disbelief Standing in matching pink gingham shirts from Ralph Lauren arms around each other the septuagenarians watched Friday as the cheers rolled through the crowd gathered outside the marble Supreme Court building Text messages and Twitter notifications were spreading the word and the flags and banners were being swung wildly overhead Still they hesitated "Could it be" Kubli asked The cheers kept growing however and Kubli finally gave himself permission to be joyful "I assumed it might not happen" he said with a sheepish shrug Outside the Supreme Court on Friday the quickly growing crowd skewed younger for sure For many standing on the sidewalk waving flags emblazoned with the equal sign that is the symbol of the Human Rights Campaign the idea that gay marriage was controversial seemed ludicrous But for older members of the crowd looking back on their own experiences it was hard to believe how much had changed and how quickly For the older generation very real issues such as medical decisions and inheritance hinged on whether their relationship was codified as a marriage or not It was a question that kept coming up for Kubli and McElerath Both previously had been wed to women but now lacked many of the rights that their one-time wives had enjoyed Others preferred to keep their personal lives private "Ive been with my wife for 29 years" said Cindy Lollar a 56-year-old resident of College Park Maryland Never did she expect to have her relationship recognized in places like Alabama or Mississippi Lollar is preparing to retire but as she is considering places to move out of the Washington area the same question kept coming up: "Would we be safe there Were there protections for us" she said "We werent safe everywhere" For instance if one fell ill would one be able to make medical decisions for the other "We were not given legal protections" she said "We wanted our rights" Nearby 68-year-old Cindy Attwood was reading the decision on her iPhone scanning Justice Anthony Kennedys ruling and giving high fives as she read parts of it aloud "Ive been waiting for 40 years for this and now we are the same as anyone else" the Fairfax County Virginia resident said She and her wife have been together 19 years and were among the first to go to Vermont when that state became the first to offer same-sex unions "This is what equality feels like" Outside the court crowds continued to grow as word spread that the Supreme Court had affirmed the Constitution gives same-sex couples the right to wed Many started shouting parts of the ruling "No union is more profound than marriage for it embodies the highest ideals of love fidelity devotion sacrifice and family" Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote "In forming a marital union two people become something greater than once they were" That was the sentiment Mickey Evans echoed as he stood with his husband Reggie Boyer outside the court "This changes everything" said Evans a 46-year-old Air Force officer The 43-year-old Boyer chimed in: "Our marriage is recognized" something that was not the case during Evans three most recent military postings The couple has been together 16 years but wed in Provincetown Massachusetts only in 2011 after the Pentagon scrapped the Dont Ask Dont Tell policy that banned military members from serving while openly gay "People knew who I am but we didnt dare (get married) We wanted to be like everyone else" Nearby the crowd continued its celebration waving giant blue-and-gold flags Others spun flags in red the color of love The group spilled into the street between the Supreme Court and the Capitol Many staffers from the Hill wandered over to what was becoming a pro-gay marriage rally Rep Mark Takano was among them The first non-white gay person elected to Congress the California Democrat was walking through the crowd cheering the ruling "Were making history We deserve this" Takano said "Think of the impact this will have on young people They will grow up knowing they have the same rights as everyone else They will never know a country where they could not get married" Write to Philip Elliott at philipelliott@timecomIts time to stop talking about photography Its not that photography is dead as many have claimed but its gone Just as theres a time to stop talking about girls and boys and to talk instead about women and men so it is with photography; something has changed so radically that we need to talk about it differently think of it differently and use it differently Failure to recognize the huge changes underway is to risk isolating ourselves in an historical backwater of communication using an interesting but quaint visual language removed from the cultural mainstream The moment of photographys "puberty" was around the time when the technology moved from analog to digital although it wasnt until the arrival of the Internet-enabled smartphone that we really noticed a different behavior That’s when adolescence truly set in It was surprising but it all seemed somewhat natural and although we experienced a few tantrums along the way with arguments about promiscuity manipulation and some inexplicable new behaviors the photographic community largely accommodated the changes with some adjustments in workflow But these visible changes were merely the advance indicators of deeper transformations and it was only a matter of time before peoples imagination reached beyond the constraints of two dimensions to explore previously unimagined possibilities And so it is that we find ourselves in a world where the digital image is almost infinitely flexible a vessel for immeasurable volumes of information operating in multiple dimensions and integrated into apps and technologies with purposes yet to be imagined Digital capture quietly but definitively severed the optical connection with reality that physical relationship between the object photographed and the image that differentiated lens-made imagery and defined our understanding of photography for 160 years The digital sensor replaced to optical record of light with a computational process that substitutes a calculated reconstruction using only one third of the available photons Thats right two thirds of the digital image is interpolated by the processor in the conversion from RAW to JPG or TIF Its reality but not as we know it For obvious commercial reasons camera manufacturers are careful to reconstruct the digital image in a form that mimics the familiar old photograph and consumers barely noticed a difference in the resulting image but there are very few limitations on how the RAW data could be handled and reality could be reconstructed in any number of ways For as long as theres an approximate consensus on what reality should look like we retain a fingernail grip on the belief in the image as an objective record But forces beyond photography and traditional publishing are already onto this new data resource and culture will move with it whether photographers choose to follow or not As David Campbell has pointed out in his report on image integrity for the World Press Photo this requires a profound reassessment of words like "manipulation" that assume the existence of a virginal image file that hasnt already been touched by computational process Veteran digital commentator Kevin Connor says “The definition of computational photography is still evolving but I like to think of it as a shift from using a camera as a picture-making device to using it as a data-collecting device” The differences contained in the structure and processing of a digital file are not the end of the story of photographys transition from innocent childhood to knowing adulthood There is so much more to grasp that very few people have yet grappled with the inevitable but as yet unimaginable impact on the photographic image Taylor Davidson has described the camera of the future as an app a software rather than a device that compiles data from multiple sensors The smartphones microphone gyroscope accelerometer thermometer and other sensors all contribute data as needed by whatever app calls on it and combines it with the visual data And still thats not the limit on what is already bundled with our digital imagery Our instruments are connected to satellites that contribute GPS data while connecting us to the Internet that links our data to all the publicly available information of Wikipedia Google and countless other resources that know where we are who was there before us and the associated economic social and political activity Layer on top of that the integration of LIDAR data (currently only in some specialist apps) then apply facial and object recognition software and consider the implication of emerging technologies such as virtual reality semantic reality and artificial intelligence and one begins to realize the mind-boggling potential of computational imagery Things will go even further with the development of curved sensors that will allow completely different ways to interpret light but that for the moment remains an idea rather than a reality Everything else is already happening and will become increasingly evident as new technologies roll out ushering us into a very different visual culture with expectations far beyond simple documentation Computational photography draws on all these resources and allows the visual image to create a picture of reality that is infinitely richer than a simple visual record and with this comes the opportunity to incorporate deeper levels of knowledge It wont be long before photographers are making images of what they know rather than only what they see Mark Levoy formerly of Stanford and now of Google puts it this way "Except in photojournalism there will be no such thing as a straight photograph; everything will be an amalgam an interpretation an enhancement or a variation either by the photographer as auteur or by the camera itself" As we tumble forwards into these unknown territories theres a curious throwback to a moment in art history when 100 years ago the Cubists revolutionized ways of seeing using a very similar (albeit analog) approach to what they saw Picasso Braque and others deconstructed the world and reassembled it not in terms of what they saw but rather in terms of what they knew using multiple perspectives to depict a deeper understanding While the photographic world wrestles with even such basic tools as Photoshop there is no doubt that were moving into a space more aligned with Cubism than Modernism It will not be long before our audiences demand more sophisticated imagery that is dynamic and responsive to change connected to reality by more than a static two-dimensional rectangle of crude visual data isolated in space and time Well look back at the black-and-white photograph that was the voice of truth for nearly a century as a simplistic and incomplete source of information about what was happening in the world Some will consider this a threat seeing only the danger of distortion and undetectable fakery and its certainly true that well need to develop new measures by which to read imagery Were already highly skilled in distinguishing probable and improbable information and we know how to read written journalism (which is driven entirely by the writers imaginative ability to interpret reality in symbolic form) and we dont confuse advertising imagery with documentary nor the photo illustration on a magazines cover with the reportage inside Fraud will always be a risk but with over a century of experience weve learned that we cant rely on the mechanical process to protect us New conventions will emerge and all the artistry thats been developed since the invention of photography will find richer and deeper opportunities to express information ideas and emotions with no greater risk to truth than we currently experience The enriched opportunities for storytelling will allow greater complexity thats closer to reality than the thinned-down simplification of 20th Century journalism and will open unprecedented connection between the subject and the viewer The twist is that new forces will be driving the process The clue is in what already occurred with the smartphone The revolutionary change in photographys cultural presence wasnt led by photographers nor publishers or camera manufacturers but by telephone engineers and this process will repeat as business grasps the opportunities offered by new technology to use visual imagery in extraordinary new ways throwing us into new and wild territory Its happening already and well see the impact again and again as new apps products and services hit the market We owe it to the medium that weve nurtured into adolescence to stand by it and support it in adulthood even though it might seem unrecognizable in its new form We know the alternative: it will be out the door and hanging with the wrong crowd while we sit forlornly in the empty nest wondering what we did wrong The first step is to stop talking about the child it once was and to put away the sentimental memories of photography as we knew it for all these years Its very far from dead but its definitely left the building Stephen Mayes is the Executive Director of the Tim
