first_img(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Cassini has observed clouds of dust from meteoroids hitting the rings.  The data will “impact” theories of the rings’ origin and age.New observations have shown dust clouds from four impacts on Saturn’s rings (see JPL press release).  One impact was observed twice, about 25 hours apart.  The impacts were found in all three major rings: A, B, and C.  The ejecta clouds are thought to have been observed between 1 and 50 hours after the impacts.  According to National Geographic, streams of meteors must be hitting the rings more often than thought.  A paper by Cassini scientists was published in Science Magazine.National Geographic waxed philosophical, saying, “The hope in the science community is that insights into these ring impacts may also shed light on the rings’ puzzling origins.”  That sentence cloaks the real problem: impacts are destructive, not constructive.  Jeff Cuzzi, long time ringmaster and co-author of the paper, expressed concerns in the press release:“Saturn’s rings are unusually bright and clean, leading some to suggest that the rings are actually much younger than Saturn,” said Jeff Cuzzi, a co-author of the paper and a Cassini interdisciplinary scientist specializing in planetary rings and dust at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif. “To assess this dramatic claim, we must know more about the rate at which outside material is bombarding the rings. This latest analysis helps fill in that story with detection of impactors of a size that we weren’t previously able to detect directly.”The impactors are estimated to be between a centimeter and several meters in diameter.  If a rain of dusty debris like this has been going on for billions of years, the rings should appear darker than they are.  Furthermore, since they carry away more mass than they add, they have been eroding the rings for a long time according to current beliefs about Saturn’s age.  Pollution and erosion are not helping keep Saturn’s rings old.Another clue for a high impact rate is the “ring rain” that descends onto Saturn’s equatorial bands.  Science Daily said that “more charged particles fall than thought” from water ions originating in the rings.  Are the charged particles coming from impacts hitting the rings?  What other process could be sending material from the rings onto Saturn?  The article didn’t say.  In any case, this is another erosive process, it appears.The paper in Science said that the estimated impact rate, though significantly higher “at face value” than before, is too uncertain to know for sure:Our results are higher than the extrapolation by one or two orders of magnitude (Fig. 4); at face value, especially if this increase is also reflected in submillimeter-to-millimeter-size particles, then pollution and erosion rates due to interplanetary meteoroids might be higher than have been thought. However, gravitational focusing enhances the flux at Saturn’s rings by a factor of 4 to 40, and the sensitivity of rings to a two-directional flux yields another factor of 2, so our results may corroborate the previous extrapolation after all.(By extrapolation, the authors refer to the prior habit of estimating impact rates for the outer solar system to be similar to rates in the inner solar system.)  Better observations to constrain the impact rate will be possible when the Cassini spacecraft approaches its end of mission (2017), when it is slated to make series of “high dives” over the rings and into the gap between the D ring and Saturn.Update April 30:  Speaking of Saturn, an article on Science Daily attempted to explain away the planet’s “youthful appearance.”  Gas giants should darken with age, the article said, but Saturn is still light-colored.  By invoking some unobservable effects deep in Saturn’s atmosphere, some scientists at the University of Exeter were able to come up with a story for how the darkening influences were kept at bay.  Any hypothesis that is applied after the fact to only one planet of the solar system in order to explain an anomaly should be treated with skepticism.If this were the only problem in the Saturn system facing the moyboys (believers in “millions of years, billions of years”), it would be worrisome for them.  But then you have Titan’s atmosphere, the Titan ethane problem, the Enceladus geysers, delicate rings, and other matters that, taken together, could title a book, “Billions of years: a theory in crisis.”  Prediction: future measurements of impact rates on Saturn’s rings will prove higher than expected.last_img read more

(Image: Soweto Gospel Choir)Janine ErasmusThe Grammy-winning Soweto Gospel Choir added another notch to their collective belt by wowing the audience at the 81st Academy Awards. The multi-award-winning group performed their Oscar-nominated song Down to Earth from Disney’s animated hit film Wall-E.“Down to Earth” was one of three nominees for Best Original Song and was up against renowned composer AR Rahman’s “O Saya” and “Jai Ho”, both taken from the film Slumdog Millionaire. Vikas Swarup, author of Q&A, on which the film was based, currently works in Pretoria as India’s Deputy High Commissioner to South Africa.“Jai Ho” was the winner on the night, while Slumdog Millionaire itself bagged a massive haul of eight statuettes, including Best Director, Best Picture, Best Cinematography and Best Score. Wall-E won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film.Making historyThe pride of the local choral scene made history by becoming the first South African musical act ever to receive an invitation to perform at the Oscars. The ceremony, arguably the world’s greatest showbiz event, took place on 22 February and was broadcast in 53 countries.The choir’s executive producer, Beverly Bryer, was ecstatic. “This is an unbelievable accolade,” she enthused. “They have achieved so much since the start of their musical journey, but being on stage and singing before a worldwide audience, at the most prestigious of all awards ceremonies, is an honour they will always treasure.”The choir recorded “Down to Earth” with famous musician and humanitarian Peter Gabriel, but performed it at the awards ceremony with six-time Grammy winner, John Legend.Gabriel withdrew from participating at the Oscars as a gesture of protest, after he was informed that the three nominated songs would be presented as a medley and that the audience would be treated to just a portion of “Down to Earth”. The singer said he didn’t feel that the allotted 65 seconds was enough time to properly showcase the song. Nonetheless even in that short time the choir managed to leave their mark on the Academy Awards audience.In February 2009, at the latest edition of the Grammy Awards, “Down to Earth” scooped the award for Best Motion Picture Song.Humble beginningsFrom humble beginnings at home, the Soweto Gospel Choir has risen to become an international sensation. Considering that they have been together for just seven years, they have notched up a number of remarkable achievements, including two Grammy awards and performances with Gabriel, Bono, Queen, Celine Dion, Annie Lennox, and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, among others.The 52-member choir has performed all over the world, delighting audiences with their soaring harmonies, energetic dancing and vibrant costumes. They have entertained the likes of former United Nations secretary-general Kofi Annan, former South African presidents Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki, former US president Bill Clinton, talk show queen Oprah Winfrey, and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu. Tutu is the choir’s proud patron.The Soweto Gospel Choir, which sings in six of South Africa’s 11 official languages, was formed in 2002 by Bryer and choirmaster David Mulovhedzi and was drawn from church and community singing groups in the Soweto area.The group sings traditional and contemporary music and has won accolades from many countries, including an Australian Helpmann Award in 2003, an American Gospel Music Award in the same year, and three Grammy nominations. They have appeared on high-profile television shows such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Conan O’Brien.The choir’s debut album Voices from Heaven topped the Billboard world music charts. Their follow-up release Blessed followed suit, and both it and the third album, African Spirit, won Grammys in 2007 and 2008 respectively for Best Traditional World Music Album.The Soweto Gospel Choir received its third Grammy nomination in 2009 but failed to make it three in a row. However, fellow nominees Ladysmith Black Mambazo walked off with the Best Traditional World Music Album award for their latest release Ilembe: Honouring Shaka Zulu.Supporting those in needA very important aspect of the Soweto Gospel Choir’s mission is to raise funds for its own Aids orphans foundation Vukani, established in 2004. Vukani (isiZulu, meaning “wake up”) has adopted Nkosi’s Haven, a long-term refuge for mothers suffering from Aids and their children, as well as those already orphaned.Nkosi’s Haven was named after the extraordinary child activist Nkosi Johnson, who was born HIV-positive and died of Aids in 2001 at the age of 12. The group gives 50% of all donations to the haven, according to Bryer, and to date has raised well over R3-million for the cause. The remaining 50% is shared amongst other needy organisations.“That’s very important to us,” said Mulovhedzi. “We feel proud we are doing something and not just singing.”As ambassadors for Nelson Mandela’s Aids awareness 46664 organisation, they continue to support those desperately in need. “Being 46664 ambassadors has given them the chance to travel and meet other ambassadors around the world,” commented Bryer. “It is their pride and joy.”Do you have queries or comments about this article?

first_img26 March 2014 The South African women’s cricket team went down to defending Women’s World Twenty20 champions Australia by six wickets with eight balls remaining in their match in Sylhet, Bangladesh on Tuesday. Batting first, Mignon du Preez and company struggled, posting just 115 for 9 in their 20 overs, led by Trish Chetty’s 30 off 28 deliveries, 20 off 24 from Marizanne Kapp, and an unbeaten 19 off only seven balls from number 10 Sune Luus. Three Australian bowlers – Rene Farrell, Erin Osborne and Julie Hunter – claimed two wickets apiece, while the South African batting effort was further undermined by the run outs of Kapp and Shabnim Ismail.Australian innings Australia reached 116 for 4 in reply, just before the start of the final over of the contest after having been reduced to 34 for 3 in the eighth over. Ellyse Perry starred with an unbeaten 41 off 29 balls, which included six fours, while Jess Cameron ended on 27 not out after the pair had put on an unbroken 60. Alex Blackwell, meanwhile, contributed 24. Disappointed but proud South African captain Mignon du Preez said while she was disappointed with the result, she was proud of the fight shown by her team. “It was our toughest game in a very long while, but the heart and determination shown by the team when we were fielding was second to none. Every player put 100 percent into this game and I could tell that the Aussies were given a bit of a surprise in facing us the way we played. “We pride ourselves in our fielding and today the team showed just what quality fielders we have. Ultimately, though, their superior match experience won the game for them. She added: “We did not have enough runs on the board to defend and they took advantage of that in the end. Full credit to them and the way Perry and Cameron managed to pull their side back on to a winning track after a shaky start.”The benefit of international competition Du Preez added that continued international competition against tough opposition will help the South Africa women to improve their game. “We hope that this match has shown the world the talent that is in this squad and that, with a little bit more competitive international match exposure, we can and will go even further as a team and a country,” she said. Despite the defeat, South Africa remains in second place in Group A, above the third placed Australians on a superior run rate. New Zealand tops the standings, while Ireland is in fourth place and Pakistan props up the table in fifth.‘A chance to recharge and regroup’ South Africa next face Ireland on Saturday in Sylhet. “I think the break will do us the world of good,” Du Preez said. “We’ll have a chance to recharge and regroup and refocus on the job at hand. “We’re looking forward to playing Ireland. They are not new to us. We played them in a triangular series in January and know how tough they can be, but I’m backing my team to show that famous Proteas’ ‘bouncebackability’.” After the clash with Ireland, the South African women wind up their Group fixtures with a match against New Zealand on Monday. The playoffs begin on Wednesday, 2 April. SAinfo reporter and Cricket South Africa)last_img read more

first_imgA light meter is an essential tool to properly expose your scene, play with contrast ratios, and even test your camera’s dynamic range.Image via Shutterstock.In the digital age, many have forgotten the value of a light meter in favor of manipulating waveforms on a monitor. However, these new techniques do not render tried-and-true external meters obsolete. On the contrary: using an external meter can save you valuable time and steer you away from exposure issues — among other things. A light meter measures the intensity of light in a scene and provides exposure information. There are two ways to meter your light: spot and incident. Incident meters read the light falling onto a subject. To take an incident meter reading, you would measure from the subject’s point of view back to the camera. It uses a white sphere to read a larger scope of light in a scene falling on the subject. With higher-end meters, you can retract this sphere to a disc to take a narrower incident reading or meter for a flat subject. (Image via Ryan E. Walters)Spot meters, on the other hand, read the exposure for a very narrow (1%) spot. They measure based on the light reflecting off of the subject; thus, they face in the direction of the camera at a specific “spot” in your scene. This can be the most accurate way to get an exposure reading, but only when measuring off of a mid-tone or middle grey. The best way to do this is by placing an 18% grey card in front of the subject and metering the light hitting that card.(Image via Ryan E. Walters)If, for some reason, you do not have a grey card handy, there are a couple of other tricks for metering middle grey. Standard blue skies, darker grass, and tanner skin tones are all metering options that typically fall into the 18% grey range. If your subject is Caucasian, you can take their meter reading and understand that they typically fall into Zone 6 (a stop above your middle grey); thus, just subtract a stop from your reading to get an accurate measure. (For the record, most interview setups tend to light a stop above middle grey so, in those cases, your reading would be accurate for the “look” you are going for.)Using a light meter is fairly simple. You first need to match your meter’s settings to your base camera settings. You put in your shutter speed or shutter angle and your ISO, and the light meter will tell you, based on the light, how you should set your aperture to get a proper exposure. You can chose to either spot or incident read your scene to get your f-stop, based on what makes the most sense for your lighting setup.Cinematographer Ryan E. Walters has a great video that goes through the basics of using a light meter in his tutorial Lighting 101: Intro to Meters. The benefits of using light meters are plenty. First and foremost, they specify the numbers you need to light your scene properly. That means you can communicate clearly with your crew and save time and guesswork on set. Plus, they allow you, when you use the incident meter, to begin lighting a scene even before the camera is built or before your subject is in frame. They are also a great resource to have on a location scout — they can help you determine your gear list and plan of attack for lighting your scene when you shoot. Personally, I find that light meters aid in mastering and matching contrast ratios (in a shot, but also scene to scene or lens to lens). This is especially helpful if you catch yourself in a pickup or re-shoot situation. Contrast or lighting ratios are the ratios representing exposure differences in a scene. For example, if you are lighting a person for an interview, and your lighting ratio is 1:1, that means that all the lights in use draw the same power and reach the subject with the same intensity. This creates a fairly flat look, but as you begin to shape the light, your contrast ratios change. To create a little shadow on the face and add more dimension, you would start by reducing your fill by a stop, creating a 2:1 contrast ratio.Image via Adorama.Meters take the guesswork out of this by measuring each specific light. Nicer meters like the Sekonic L758 Cine or the Sekonic L-478 DR let you use the delta button to store your first reading and then determine the exposure value difference between your key and your fill light. Exposure value is the measurement of changes in stops of light. So an EV +1 means that there is one stop more light, and visa versa. This feature on the meter not only saves you guesswork but also time by doing the math for you (which this art major is thankful for!). (Image via B&H)Meters, especially spot meters, are also useful for ensuring that nothing in your scene falls out of your camera’s exposure range. You can check the stops for your highlights and shadows to make sure that the EV is not steeper than your camera can handle. You can also even use a light meter to test the dynamic range of your camera’s sensor and even program it into your light meter, calibrating it to an even higher degree of accuracy and making it an even more reliable resource for quickly checking exposure in a scene. There are a range of options to chose from when buying a light meter. Be sure that whatever you purchase has cine options (and is not just a still camera meter) to dial in your ISO and shutter angle. It’s also super handy to have a meter that has both spot and incident capabilities. External meters may be a bit expensive, but the accuracy and efficiency they provide is worth the price tag. But if for some reason you’re in a tight spot, you can also try out some of these amazing apps until you’ve got the budget to invest.Looking for more information on light meters?
