From picking the right song to knowing how to create your own motion graphics, working on an edit with a quick turnaround means anticipating challenges.There are many roadblocks you can run into once you start a video edit, and the sad fact is you’re going to hit one. It might be Premiere crashing, it might be lack of footage and resources, or it could just be a creative block. It happens to all of us. So, how do we prepare ourselves for success? It’s all about the approach and how you set up the project before you get started. So, let’s consider a few different things you can try to minimize the interruptions of editing roadblocks.Find The Right Music FasterFirst things first: picking music for your project. This means not only a creative approach but also a logical one. By which I mean choosing stems and waveforms. One of PremiumBeat’s recent updates gives you the ability to remove and use select stems as you see fit. This means you can pick your favorite aspects of a song (like a specific instrumental track) without being locked into the whole arrangement. That means more freedom in your edit. And a more unique final product.This can also save you time. It’s weird to think that more versions of an available song will cut down on time, but consider this: instead of cutting a song up in a hundred different ways trying to make one 10-second stretch work, you can simply remove aspects of the arrangement. If something isn’t working, pull it out, salvage the good parts, and move on.In addition, our waveform feature will give you an idea whether or not this song is a good match overall. If the video you’re cutting requires a steady, consistent beat, look for a track that represents this in the waveform. If you’re looking for a track with a giant build-up and a dramatic drop, the waveform will reflect this is well — saving you from listening to every single possible track.Keeping the Creative Juices FlowingImage via Todd Blankenship.It’s pretty simple — you can only edit as fast as you can tell a story. And sometimes you get stuck in a rut — whether it’s editor’s block or technical issues. When it happens, there are a few things you can try to help break through that inevitable wall. Working with your sound first is a good tactic. Todd Blankenship talks about this in his recent post:Nothing helps me visualize an edit more than listening to perfect sound for it beforehand. Sometimes, when you’re stuck on an edit, it’s likely that you might have started trying to edit with the wrong track — or you haven’t picked a track at all.Like Todd, my edits usually start with the music. You can develop a better understanding of the rhythm, pace, and tone of your piece once you’ve decided on a good song. Sometimes I even pick out multiple songs so that I have ready options in case the footage doesn’t quite match what I had originally imagined. Just remember: it’s okay to feel stuck, as long as you push forward and put something together. You can always improve a rough cut later.Memorizing Keyboard ShortcutsLike any aspect of filmmaking, practice makes perfect. It took me a considerable amount of time to memorize the various keyboard shortcuts (for Premiere, unlike most who still use FCP7 keys). It will take some time to get used to editing with keys. But there are a few jumping-off points that make sense. J, K, and L are a natural progression once you’ve gotten past in (I) and out (O). If you’re working with separate audio tracks unlinked from your video, you’ll need to know how to move things around to the nearest frame.Learn the Basics of After EffectsIf you’re like me, After Effects is something you’ve simply never sat down and taken the time to master — and your motion graphics suffer for it. Luckily for us, there are some great tutorials on how to learn the basics of the program in a manner of minutes. Shutterstock Tutorials is here to save the day:Obviously one video doesn’t cover everything you can do with the program, but if you just need to make a graphic or a title move around the frame to improve the overall production value of your video, this tutorial is for you.And if you need more resources for saving time and energy in your post-production workflow, over the past few months we’ve put out several tutorials covering all things Premiere and After Effects. No matter your current skill level, there’s always more to learn.

AdvertisementEpic Sports & Entertainment has won a purse bid for the IBF heavyweight title eliminator between former heavyweight world title challenger Kubrat Pulev (25-1, 13 KOs) and Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller (21-0-1, 18 KOs). Epic Sports won the purse bid with a winning bid of $2,111,111, topping the next highest bid of $1,000,010, according to Dan Rafael of ESPN.Epic Sports & Entertainment, with which longtime boxing attorney John Wirt is involved, surprisingly won an IBF purse bid last month to promote a Pulev-Dillian Whyte elimination match. Epic Sports & Entertainment bid $1,500,111 – more than Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing ($831,111), which promotes Whyte, and Team Sauerland ($801,305) to win that purse bid.The winner of the Pulev vs. Miller fight will be the International Boxing Federation mandatory challenger to IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs). Joshua also has a WBA mandatory due against 38-year-old Alexander Povetkin. It’s quite possible that Joshua will take care of the WBA mandatory first before he gets to the IBF mandatory.Brooklyn’s Miller stands to make what would be a career-high $527,777.75, his 25 percent of the winning bid.ulev hasn’t fought since defeating American Kevin Johnson (32-9-1, 16 KOs) by unanimous decision in a 12-rounder in April 2017 in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Andrew Strauss, England team director, is all praise for captain Eoin Morgan, saying he has climbed Everest — the highest mountain in the world — by winning the World Cup 2019.On July 14, Morgan-led England ended the 44-year-old drought to become world champions when they defeated New Zealand on boundary count in the summit clash of the 2019 edition of the showpiece event.”The question for him is what he wants to achieve here,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Strauss as saying, “because he has climbed Everest. That is the question for all the players, because we have made mistakes in the past. We’ve won Ashes series and got to No.1 in the world and thought that was the end in itself.”We have to find a way of making this a launchpad for something bigger and better and that is a huge challenge,” added Strauss.The former England skipper also said that it’s up to Morgan to decide whether he wants to lead the side or not.”I certainly hope that what he is doing right now, unless he is absolutely clear he wants to carry on, is just taking a bit of time to reflect where he is at,” said Strauss.”To stay on as captain he needs to be driven and motivated to push people on as he has done over the last four years and if he has the bit between his teeth then we’ve seen just what a fantastic leader he is,” he added.Wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler, who is currently vice-captain in all three formats, is Morgan’s most likely successor. He has previously led the side in six ODIs and four T20Is.advertisementOn Monday, Buttler said there was “no reason” why Morgan should not stay on as captain. “There is plenty of life in him yet,” he said. “I hope (he carries on). He has done an incredible job. He is the best captain we’ve ever had and all of us love playing under him. We are all very hopeful.”England will now shift their focus to Test cricket as they will face arch-rivals Australia in the five-match Ashes Series beginning August 1.Also Read | Who are the nice guys of world cricket and why they rarely finish lastAlso Read | Ravi Shastri eulogizes Kane Williamson’s composure and dignity after World Cup defeatAlso See:

Longhorn NetworkThere will be zero love lost tonight, when No. 6 LSU and No. 9 Texas hit the field in Austin today. The two sides have been exchanging barbs all week, and it looks like that energy has spilled out onto the field during warm-ups.Longhorn Network happened to be interviewing former Longhorns basketball star Mo Bamba, when a bit of a skirmish broke out. LSU and Texas players had to be separated.The video appears to show LSU players running through a Texas warm-up drill, leading to some words being exchanged from both sides. Things are clearly already pretty heated.We were just having a nice time with Mo Bamba when a kerfuffle broke out on the field. pic.twitter.com/Bi4lK29oOu— Longhorn Network (@LonghornNetwork) September 7, 2019 The Athletic’s Brody Miller was on hand for the brush-up. LSU and Texas have been trading words over which program holds the rightful title of “DBU,” so naturally, defensive backs were prominently involved.It’s getting chippy, baby. Looked like the #LSU defensive backs ran right through Texas running a drill, and both sides had to be separated. The LSU DBs just were jumping up and down laughing. pic.twitter.com/szt5ETW9WV— Brody Miller (@BrodyAMiller) September 7, 2019They weren’t alone though. Among the LSU instigators, per Miller, is none other than K’Lavon Chaisson.If you’ve been following the lead-up to this game, you definitely recognize that name. The Houston native, who spurned the Longhorns for the Tigers as a blue-chip recruit, has not been shy about calling out UT this week.Early in the week, Chaisson took a shot at Sam Ehlinger’s abilities as a passer, something he lightly walked back later in the week.He followed that up by saying that he doesn’t believe Texas has a chance to win tonight’s game. That, to my knowledge, he has not walked back at all.This was already one of the most highly-anticipated games of the early part of the season, and a rare top 10 non-conference battle played on a school’s campus. The action in the press and, now, on the field ahead of the game certainly doesn’t mute any anticipation.LSU and Texas get going at 7:30 p.m. ET from Austin. The game is being broadcast on ABC.
The Ministry of Education is seeking to cultivate a culture of safety and security at all educational institutions across the island. Deputy Chief Education Officer in the Ministry of Education, Sharon Neil, said minimum standards and guidelines for safety have been established. Through these standards, she said, “we hope to stimulate a culture of safety in all our institutions where it has not yet emerged, and to give direction and support to all institutions, where it already exists.” Mrs. Neil, who was addressing the Excelsior Community College Disaster Awareness and Business expo held today (March 11), at the school’s Mountain View Avenue location, said the Ministry of Education has played a proactive role in encouraging schools to comply with the standards that have been established, including offering support where needed. She noted that while some institutions exceed the standards, “we continue to encourage schools to remain vigilant and protective of the high standards that they have maintained”. The Deputy Chief Executive Officer said that the Ministry also continues to collaborate with government and non-governmental agencies in implementing school-based initiatives aimed at a healthy, peaceful and safe school environment. As such, she said, the Ministry is in the process of sensitising students about the importance of proper garbage collection, separation, storage and disposal. She noted that this is aimed at ensuring the healthy well-being of students and other stakeholders within the sector. In addition, schools are required to conduct three disaster preparedness drills during the school year, so as to ensure that all stakeholders are prepared for any eventualities. “We feel that everyone must be held to understand how they are to respond or react in the case of a natural disaster or manmade disaster or any other emergencies,” Mrs. Neil said. The expo, under the theme: ‘Health and Disaster Awareness…Everybody’s Business,’ was held to educate and inform students, staff and community members about matters related to disaster and health management.

New Delhi: Asia’s largest helmet manufacturer Steelbird Hi-tech India on Tuesday offered to set up a manufacturing plant in Jammu & Kashmir, a day after article 35A granting special status to the state was revoked by the government. This will help the Kashmir Valley kickstart a new industrial revolution and employment for the citizens, said Steelbird in a statement welcoming the government’s move. “It is a much awaited move by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah to overrule Article 370 . This fantastic move ensures that the Valley enters the Indian mainstream and becomes a part of our nation’s collective growth,” said Steelbird Helmets Chairman Subhash Kapur. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal Until now, most of the manufacturing activity in J&K has remained restricted to the state’s inherent capacities in agriculture and handicraft, it added. “We think it will kickstart with the companies tying up with established local players to build the ecosystem. This is how most cities and states grow and we see it as a great opportunity for localites first,” said Steelbird Helmets MD Rajeev Kapur. “We plan to come up with manufacturing facility in accordance to the upcoming investor summit in the month of October. We hope the decisions will allow the businesses to operate freely under the same rules in the Valley,” he added. Steelbird already has invested Rs 150 crore in the manufacturing plants at Baddi, Himachal Pradesh and is now planning to enhance the production capacity to 44,500 helmets a day. It intends to replicate the same success story for the Valley as well, the statement added.
Washington: Over $600,000 has been raised in just eight days through crowd-funding for the treatment of a 13-year-old Indian-American girl fighting for her life after an Iraq war veteran in California mowed her and her family in a suspected case of hate crime. On April 23, Dhriti Narayan, a grade 7 student, her brother, father and other family members were crossing a road in Sunnyvale when they were struck down by a former soldier, Isaiah Peoples, 34, reportedly to be suffering from Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportPeoples, an Iraq war veteran, injured seven others, who were crossing the road, including Dhriti’s father and her 9-year-old brother. The family was targeted apparently in hate crime because the motorist thought they were Muslims, police said. Peoples, who was unharmed in the incident, is facing eight counts of attempted murder and is being detained at Santa Clara County Jail with no bail set. According to a crowdfunding page, GoFundMe, set up to help the family cover her medical costs, Dhriti has suffered life threatening injuries including severe brain injuries and is currently on life support. Since the fundraising appeal went live on GoFundMe eight days ago, more than 12,400 people have donated money and have raised around USD 605,000. The target was USD 500,000.
TORONTO — The killing of a Canadian mining company executive in Burkina Faso is drawing attention to the deteriorating security situation in the country and the risks resource firms face in unstable regions.Kirk Woodman, who was working for Vancouver-based Progress Minerals Inc., was found dead after being kidnapped from a company exploration camp in the country Tuesday.The incident, while rare, comes as threats from insurgents rise in the West African region which is home to numerous Canadian mining operations. Dying for gold: Colombia’s untapped metals motherlode is luring miners — and killing their workers Canada’s Gran Colombia Gold files $700 million lawsuit against Colombia over Marmato project Reboot of underground Cape Breton coal mine runs into trouble amid complaints of unsafe conditions, layoffs “Burkina Faso is a relatively new target for Islamic militancy,” said Ryan Cummings, a director of consultancy Signal Risk based in South Africa.“I believe that in the West African region we are seeing a potential spread of extremism and Islamic militancy into new zones, specifically into areas where mining interests are present but have been insulated from the violence could potentially be increasingly affected.”There are not yet enough indications that the mining industry is being targeted, but the resource sector is one of the few where expatriates would operate outside of the capital of Ouagadougou.“I don’t necessarily think this is so much an attack on the mining sector per-se, it’s more targeting foreign nationals who find themselves in such locales because of commercial interests there,” Cummings said.Montreal-based SEMAFO Inc., which has mines in the region, reported several attacks on roads near its operations last year.The company said a national employee and a subcontractor were killed last August when a bus transporting employees was targeted by bandits and another subcontractor and five gendarmes were killed in a separate attack days earlier. In December, the company said government security forces were attacked on a road about 40 kilometres from its Boungou mine in the country.The company updated its security policy so that all foreign employees are now being transported by helicopter between the mine site and the capital. It said security for local employees has been boosted by a ground military force and more escorts and that it continues to discuss security issues with the government.Iamgold Corp. and Roxgold Inc. also have gold mining operations in the country.Werner Claessens, a geologist who has known Woodman since the 1990s, said the environment for exploration geologists in Western Africa has been deteriorating in recent years.The properties acquired by Woodman’s company was a promising series of gold prospects, but the “red zone” they were located in had come to be considered difficult to work in, he explained.“It was a zone considered quite dangerous,” he said, adding that several years ago that wasn’t the case.“It became dangerous in the summer of 2017 when the first terrorist attacks took place in that part of the country,” he explained.Claessens has worked and lived in Western Africa since 1985, and lived in Burkina Faso from 2004 until 2011, and regularly visits the nation.“For us it’s a very sad thing to see what is happening and developing there in terms of terrorist attacks. We’ve never seen this before in the nearly three decades I worked there,” he said.Cummings said the security situation in Burkina Faso started deteriorating in 2014 when the authoritarian regime collapsed, but has been made worse by the spread of Islamic militants that are also affecting security in neighbouring Mali and Cote d’Ivoire.But he said that while there are pockets of security issues across the continent, it is not the main risk faced by companies operating there.“The biggest risks facing the mining sector are actually political stability and also legislation, and how the state intends to deal with its extractive sector.”The insurgent threats in west Africa contrasts somewhat with a lessening threat from militants in Latin America, said Remi Piet, a senior director at Americas Market Intelligence.“We have in Colombia, and across Latin America, a decrease of the widespread security threats linked to guerrilla warfare.”But he said community opposition to mining projects, issues with drug trades, and some remnants of guerrilla groups continue to require attention and planning.The killing of three geologists at Continental Gold’s operations in Colombia last September show the risks faced by exploration teams and the need to understand community concerns and risks.“The big issue is when the company does not develop the right protocol and has not gathered the proper intelligences,” said Piet.He said it’s crucial that mining companies create corporate social responsibility programs with real substance so that local communities become allies in resisting security threats.— With files from Michael Tutton in Halifax.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Iditarod officials have cleared a four-time champion of any wrongdoing in a dog-doping scandal that followed the sled dog race last year.Officials for the 1,000-mile (1,610 kilometre) Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race issued a statement this week absolving musher Dallas Seavey of any involvement in the drugging of his dogs, the Anchorage Daily News reported .Four of Seavey’s dogs tested positive for the opioid painkiller tramadol, a banned substance, following his second-place finish in March 2017.“We met with him multiple times and there was (sufficient) evidence to conclude he didn’t have anything to do with it,” said Mike Mills, president of Iditarod’s board of directors.Mills declined to say what that evidence was.“It’s a hard situation to untangle, but we’re comfortable that we made the right decision,” Mills said.Seavey said he presented a “very compelling case” to the race board. After the test results were made public last year, he had suggested that someone sabotaged his team.“I can’t prove what did happen, but we can strongly prove what didn’t happen,” Seavey said.Seavey said he can’t share of all the information about the case, but he noted that one of his arguments dealt with the timing of the drug tests. The dogs had high levels of the drug immediately before test, which he knew was coming.“It does not look like something someone was trying to get away with. It’s very blatant,” Seavey said.While Mills said Seavey did not have knowledge of the doping, officials have not determined who was responsible for it.“We’re convinced we’re never going to figure that out,” Mills said.Seavey raced in Norway instead of running the Iditarod this year. He hasn’t decided where he will race next year.“I’m not entirely sure which way we’re going, but I’m training dogs,” Seavey said. “This whole situation over a whole year-and-a-half has been tiresome, to say the least. I’m focused on having fun with the dog team. The simple side of it.”___Information from: Anchorage Daily News, http://www.adn.comThe Associated Press
LBJ: Three times the MVP.Boston Celtic fan douses LeBron James with beer after Miami Heat winLeBron James is villainized by critics when he has a less-than-stellar game. He’s also villainized when he plays well.After the Miami Heat’s 98-79 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals, a fan threw a drink on James as he was heading to the lockerroom.James, who had just scored 45 points, chose not to react and kept walking.Nothing that he could have said would have made more of a statement than his play had anyway.With his team facing elimination, he seemingly couldn’t miss. He scored 14 points in the first quarter, had 30 by halftime and added 11 in the third quarter. He made 19 of his 26 field-goal attempts, his most efficient output in any of the six games in which he scored 45 points or more.He also had 15 points and five assists.Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra gushed about the player who is accused of not being clutch in big games.“He was absolutely fearless tonight,” Spoelstra said. “And it was contagious.”Boston Coach Doc Rivers also paid homage to the highly criticized superstar.“I hope now you guys can stop talking about LeBron and that he doesn’t play in big games,” Rivers told reporters. “He was pretty good tonight. Now that’s to bed.”James didn’t let the classless Celtics fan ruin his moment or spoil his mood.While on the podium, he took a moment to reflect on his performance.“It’s a great feeling to be in, when you feel like everything you put up is going in,” James said.Source: LA Times
MIAMI (WSVN) – Community leaders honored a part of Miami history by unveiling a landmark designation plaque at Lemon City Cemetery.Dating back to the early 1900s, the cemetery will now be preserved as a memorial park following Tuesday’s event.Lemon City Cemetery was rediscovered in 2009 when construction workers unearthed bones near Northwest 71st Street and Fourth Avenue.“Historic cemeteries are important cultural and archeological resources,” said local historian Dr. Enid Pinkney, whose grandfather is buried at the cemetery. “They provide us with information on the history of the community and are places that commemorate the dead and the past.”The location is recognized as one of Miami’s oldest cemeteries with 525 people buried there, including many black Americans of Bahamian descent.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

NASA is looking to shift its focus from low-Earth orbit to Mars and beyond, but what does that mean for the International Space Station? The current end date for NASA support of the station is 2024, and the agency has confirmed that it has a plan in place to transfer management of the station to a commercial entity around that time.The ISS deorbit date was originally set for 2016, but that was pushed to 2020 recently. Then, the operational mission was extended to 2024. There was speculation that the station could be abandoned at that time in favor or other projects, but NASA might just be turning the keys over to a new owner. The ISS took years to build and continues to be a platform for important scientific research. It’s also a handy place to test new space technologies like the Bigelow expandable module.NASA didn’t say which companies are being considered to take over ISS operations, but Boeing and SpaceX seem like prime candidates. These are the only firms with manned launch vehicles ready to go. The ISS is even getting a docking module to accommodate the SpaceX Dragon v2 and Boeing CST-100. Those vehicles are expected to begin flying people to and from the ISS in 2017.Of course, the fate of the ISS isn’t only up to NASA. The ISS is a collaboration between the space agencies of the US, Russia, Canada, Japan, and Europe. All of them have been pouring billions of dollars into the yearly maintenance costs for the station. They might all be happy to be relieved of that financial burden without letting the station go to waste.
