Forced Perspective & Moving Cameras on LOTR

0 Comments

first_imgAlthough first uploaded over 4 years ago, this behind-the-scenes shot of LOTR is taken the Internet by storm with its mind-blowing take on forced perspective with a moving camera.Forced perspective is ubiquitous with modern media – no doubt you’ve seen a pic of your friend on Facebook “holding up” the Leaning Tower of Pisa or balancing the Eiffel Tower on their palm.  The visual trick makes an object appear closer or further, smaller or bigger than it really is.The same technique is often applied in film, but on a much more technical level.  This clip of the Lord of the Rings behind-the-scenes is creating quite a stir in the online video production community, as it showcases the great lengths that were taken to force perspective in that film.  In the book/film, Hobbits are smaller than humans…so this had to be demonstrated in the film either by special effects or forced perspective.  Unlike many forced perspective shots that are merely camera lock-offs, Lord of the Rings utilized two seperate dollys running in tandem (one for the camera itself and the other for talent) to achieve the effect with a MOVING camera.  A very clever effect that is pulled off successfully!last_img read more

Large bowel resection

0 Comments

first_imgDefinitionLarge bowel resection is surgery to remove all or part of your large bowel. This surgery is also called colectomy. The large bowel is also called the large intestine or colon.Removal of the entire colon and the rectum is called a proctocolectomy.Removal of part or all of the colon but not the rectum is called subtotal colectomy.The large bowel connects the small intestine to the anus. Normally, stool passes through the large bowel before leaving the body through the anus.Alternative NamesAscending colectomy; Descending colectomy; Transverse colectomy; Right hemicolectomy; Left hemicolectomy; Hand assisted bowel surgery; Low anterior resection; Sigmoid colectomy; Subtotal colectomy; Proctocolectomy; Colon resection; Laparoscopic colectomy; Colectomy – partial; Abdominal perineal resectionDescriptionYou will get general anesthesia before your surgery. This will make you sleep and keep you pain-free. The surgery can be performed laparoscopically or with open surgery.Depending on what type of procedure you have, your surgeon will make one or more cuts in your belly.Withlaparoscopic colectomy, the surgeon uses a tinycamera to see inside your belly and small instruments to remove part of your large bowel. You will have three to five small cuts in your lower belly. The surgeon passes the medical instruments through these cuts.You may also have a cut of about 2 to 3 inches if your surgeon needs to put a hand inside your belly to feel or remove the diseased bowel.During laparoscopy, your belly will be filled with gas to expand it. This makes the area easier to see and work in.Your surgeon will remove the diseased part of your large bowel.The surgeon will then sew the healthy ends of the bowel back together. This is called anastomosis.Then the cuts on the skin will be closed with stitches.For open colectomy, your surgeon will make a 6- to 8-inch cut in your lower belly.advertisementThe surgeon will find the part of your colon that is diseased.The surgeon will put clamps on both ends of this part to close it off.Then the surgeon will remove the diseased part.If there is enough healthy large intestine left, your surgeon will sew or staple the healthy ends back together. Most patients have this done.If you do not have enough healthy large intestine to reconnect, you may have a colostomy.In most cases, the colostomy is short-term. It can be closed with another operation later. But, if a large part of your bowel is removed, the colostomy may be permanent.Your surgeon may also look at lymph nodes and other organs, and may remove some of them.Colectomy surgery usually takes between 1 and 4 hours.Why the Procedure Is PerformedLarge bowel resection is used to treat many conditions, including:A block in the intestine due to scar tissueColon cancerDiverticular disease (disease of the large bowel)Other reasons to perform bowel resection are:Familial polyposisInjuries that damage the large bowelIntussusception (when one part of the intestine pushes into another)Precancerous polyps (nodes)Severe gastrointestinal bleedingTwisting of the bowel (volvulus)Ulcerative colitisRisksTalk with your doctor about these possible risks and complications.Risks for any anesthesia are:Reactions to medicinesBreathing problemsRisks for any surgery are:Blood clots in the legs that may travel to the lungsBreathing problemsHeart attack or strokeInfection, including in the lungs, urinary tract, and bellyRisks for this surgery are:Bleeding inside your bellyBulging tissue through the surgical cut, called an incisional herniaDamage to nearby organs in the bodyDamage to the ureter or bladderProblems with the colostomyScar tissue that forms in the belly and causes a blockage of the intestinesThe edges of your intestines that are sewn together come open (anastomotic leak — this may be life-threatening)Wound breaks open (dehiscence)Wound infectionsBefore the ProcedureAlways tell your doctor or nurse what drugs you are taking, even drugs, supplements, or herbs you bought without a prescription.Talk with your doctor or nurse about these things before you have surgery:Intimacy and sexualityPregnancySportsWorkDuring the 2 weeks before your surgery:Two weeks before surgery you may be asked to stop taking drugs that make it harder for your blood to clot. These include aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), Naprosyn (Aleve, Naproxen), and others.Ask your doctor which drugs you should still take on the day of your surgery.If you smoke, try to stop. Ask your doctor for help.Always let your doctor know about any cold, flu, fever, herpes breakout, or other illness you may have before your surgery.Eat high fiber foods and drink 6 to 8 glasses of water every day.The day before your surgery:advertisementA few days before surgery, you will be given a bowel prep that includes drinking fluids and taking laxatives and enemas. This is done to make sure that the colon is free of any stool.You may be asked to drink only clear liquids such as broth, clear juice, and water after noon.Donot drink anything after midnight, including water. Sometimes you will not be able to drink anything for up to 12 hours before surgery.On the day of your surgery:Take the drugs your doctor told you to take with a small sip of water.Your doctor or nurse will tell you when to arrive at the hospital.After the ProcedureYou will be in the hospital for 3 to 7 days. You may have to stay longer if your colectomy was an emergency operation.You may also need to stay longer if a large amount of your small intestine was removed or you develop any complications. By the second or third day, you will probably be able to drink clear liquids. Your doctor or nurse will slowly add thicker fluids and then soft foods as your bowel begins to work again.Outlook (Prognosis)Most people who have a large bowel resection recover fully. Even with a colostomy, most people are able to do most activities they were doing before their surgery. This includes most sports, travel, gardening, hiking, and other outdoor activities, and most types of work.If you have a long-term (chronic) condition, such as cancer, Crohns disease, or ulcerative colitis, you may need ongoing medical treatment.ReferencesFry RD, Mahmoud N, Maron DJ, Bleier JIS.

Australian Teams In Camp This Weekend

0 Comments

first_imgThe Australian Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Open teams will use the weekend as an opportunity to train and play trial games in a training camp environment before they travel to Mudgee on Tuesday. With the Australian teams chosen following a camp in Sydney three weeks ago, this weekend’s camp is the perfect opportunity for the sides to train after teams were announced earlier this month. The Australian Women’s Open team will see six debutants take to the field in the series, with coach Peter Bell saying this weekend will be a great opportunity for the team to gel before travelling to Mudgee.“I don’t think we’ve ever had half the Australian team turnover from one tournament to another so it’s exciting that we’ve got a lot of young girls coming through and we’re having to blood a lot of new people but I think the positive side of it is that we’re doing it so early in the cycle,” Bell said. “Everyone is just thrilled to be a part of it, there’s a really good feeling in the Women’s team.”Nine players will debut for the Australian Mixed Open team at an Open level in Mudgee and coach Micheal Lovett says this weekend is very important for his side in the lead up to next week’s event. “We looked at some of the fringe players in the Men’s and Women’s Open teams to play Mixed which we did, we took four players back, two from the Men’s and two from the Women’s which means some of the work we had done at the initial camp three weeks ago has to be rehashed,” Lovett said. “At the end of the day when you get an opportunity to represent your country it is all about what you can do. It doesn’t matter what the lead in is you are wearing your nation’s crest on your chest and that’s what’s important.”With 12 players out of his World Cup winning side returning for the event in Mudgee, Australian Men’s Open coach, Tony Trad, says this weekend’s camp will be a good opportunity to finish off their preparation. “We’ve been together a while now, it’s just about polishing off our combinations again and just refresh our memories on our policies and playing together and those kinds of things. All I want is to get some familiarity about our game and some consistency about our game, I’ll be happy with that,” Trad said. Robert Nakhla returns to the Men’s Open team after his debut in 2009, while 2011 World Cup Mixed Open representative, Troy Malcolm and 2007 World Cup Mixed Open representative, Matt Tope, have also been named in the side. The only debutant in the team is Sydney’s Daniel Barton, with Trad saying that all four have fit into the team really well. “A couple of them have been around for a while…they are very, very happy that they have taken that final step and of course, we’ve got young Daniel Barton, this is his first time ever at an international level and he hasn’t even played Origin. He’s a bit of a kid in a candy store at the moment, eyes wide open, big smile on his face and he looks like he’s enjoying every moment of it,” Trad said. “That’s really good, not just for him obviously it’s very exciting for him, but for the rest of the team to see the enjoyment and excitement that people still get from making Touch Football representation at this level.” Stay tuned to the website for previews of the Trans Tasman with each of the Australian coaches in the lead up to the 2012 Trans Tasman Test Series in Mudgee, New South Wales from Thursday, April 26 until Saturday, April 28 2012.

Muslim scholars’ union decries Jewish settler attacks on mosques in Israel

first_imgBy Ahmed al-MasriCAIRO – The IUMS urged Muslim imams around the world to dedicate their Friday sermons to “denouncing these criminal acts, which hurt the sentiments of Muslims.”The International Union for Muslim Scholars (IUMS) on Thursday called on mosque preachers worldwide to denounce assaults on Muslim places of worship and insults to Islam’s Prophet Muhammad by extremist Jewish settlers in Israel. In a Thursday statement, the IUMS urged Muslim imams around the world to dedicate their Friday sermons to “denouncing these criminal acts, which hurt the sentiments of Muslims.”On Saturday, a group of Israeli settlers spray-painted anti-Arab slogans on the walls of a local mosque in the predominantly Arab village of Baka al-Gharbiya – which is home to roughly 31,000 Palestinian Arabs – near the city of Haifa.“These acts are a brazen violation of law and international conventions,” read the statement, which was signed by prominent Muslim scholar and IUMS President Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi.Roughly 1.7 million Arabs live in Israel, which currently has a total population of 8.1 million, according to the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics.last_img read more

Tunisian jihadists call for uprising anniversary demo

0 Comments

first_imgTUNIS- Tunisia’s banned jihadist group Ansar al-Sharia designated a “terrorist organisation” by the authorities, has called for a demonstration Tuesday in central Tunis to mark the third anniversary of the revolution.“The struggle is mandatory and it must be a popular struggle… which is why we extend our hands to anyone wanting to stand up to repression and we support the planned protest at the Kasbah on Tuesday,” the group said on its official Facebook page.“We must struggle against the tyranny of the authorities by all means possible,” added the group, which is blamed for killing two leftist opposition MPs in separate attacks earlier this year. It called on the people to carry with them “the anger of the orphans, the widows, the oppressed, the families of martyrs and detainees, and those who have suffered torture and oppression.”The authorities did not immediately respond to Ansar al-Sharia’s call, which comes as Tunisia prepares to mark the third anniversary of the start of the revolution that toppled former strongman Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.There have been numerous calls to protest at the Kasbah in Tunis, where the government’s headquarters are located, across the Internet and on fly posters.Opposition activists are also calling for a day of “rage” in the impoverished central town of Sidi Bouzid, where the self-immolation of 26-year-old street vendor sparked the first so-called Arab Spring uprising.Since then, Tunisia has been rocked by violence blamed on radical Islamist groups that were suppressed under the former dictator, with attacks multiplying in recent months, and with the opposition blaming the ruling Islamist party Ennahda of failing to rein in the jihadists.The authorities say Ansar al-Sharia has ties to Al-Qaeda and was behind the killing of Chokri Belaid and Mohammed Brahmi in February and July, attacks which sparked political crises.Ansar al-Sharia has denies responsibility for the Belaid and Brahmi murders.Since the summer police have carried out multiple arrests aimed at weakening the secretive group, which accused Ennahda on Monday of being “traitors” only interested in power.last_img read more
