Is Nikon Hiding D800 Recall As 'Free Maintenance' Initiative? - DIY Photography | Through the Lens | Scoop.it
In today’s world, everyone likes to dress up words and make them sound more appealing to themselves and the masses.  Political correctness is rampant, and we have to be so careful anymore about what we say so as to not offend the sensibilities of others or cast something in a negative light.

DIY Project: Build an AlienBees/Einstein Globe Modifier for Under $25 | Fstoppers | Through the Lens | Scoop.it
If you are fan of DIY projects or are on a budget, this tutorial shows you all the steps for creating a simple yet effective globe light modifier for Paul C. Buff (RIP) strobes like AlienBees and Einsteins. Unlike many other DIY modifiers, this globe actually attaches the exact same way the retail modifiers do. Best of all, you can buy everything you need for under $25!
Donald Schwartz's insight:

Two things: If you have a jig saw you can build your own adapter, and if you want to use the modeling light, try drilling some dime-sized holes in the globe. And to keep the globe from cracking, I suggest warm sand.

Stone Soup
"Some travelers come to a village, carrying nothing more than an empty cooking pot. Upon their arrival, the villagers are unwilling to share any of their food stores with the hungry travelers. Then the travelers go to a stream and fill the pot with water, drop a large stone in it, and place it over a fire. One of the villagers becomes curious and asks what they are doing?. The travelers answer that they are making "stone soup", which tastes wonderful, although it still needs a little bit of garnish to improve the flavor, which they are missing. The villager does not mind parting with a few carrots to help them out, so that gets added to the soup. Another villager walks by, inquiring about the pot, and the travelers again mention their stone soup which has not reached its full potential yet. The villager hands them a little bit of seasoning to help them out. More and more villagers walk by, each adding another ingredient. Finally, a delicious and nourishing pot of soup is enjoyed by all." Wikipedia
