The label (along with "sell by," "best before," and "enjoy by") has nothing to do with food safety. It's just a somewhat arbitrary sign of how long a manufacturer thinks it might taste best—but consumers tend to take it as a sign to toss food out.Read Full Story

    I define art as having nothing at all to do with painting. Art is a human act, a generous contribution, something that might not work, and it is intended to change the recipient for the better, often causing a connection to happen. Five elements that are difficult to find and worth seeking out. Human, generous, risky, change and connection. You can be perfect or you can make art. You can keep track of what you get in return, or you can make art. You can enjoy the status quo, or you can make art.  The most difficult part might be in choosing whether you want to make art at all, and…

    That simple question is the litmus test for a productive relationship. If one professional says it to another, the answer is an emotion-free, "sure." There's no baggage. Talking is the point. Talking is what we do. We communicate to solve problems. On the other hand, if the question brings with it fear and agitation and, "uh oh, what's wrong," you can bet that important stuff goes undiscussed all the time.

    Amazon has opened up a new streamlined sales channel for startups called LaunchPad.

    Guest author Yoav Vilner is a cofounder of Ranky. Startups in today's increasingly saturated market just can't overestimate the importance of business growth.

  • Constructing CSS Quantity Queries On The Fly

    Drew Minns
    29 Jul 2015 | 7:16 am
      Often within a project, the presentation of our content changes based on certain needs. We see this when we use media queries to change our styles based on the user device. CSS quantity queries follow the same concept of changing the styles based on a condition: the condition within a quantity query being the number of sibling elements. An example would be navigation where items are 25% wide when four items are available; yet when there are five items available, the width of the navigation items changes to 20%. This is a common problem with dynamic site frameworks like WordPress…

Is there anything wrong with this shot? Not technically, but it’s not winning any awards. I would guess that most photographers go through this, even the best ones.

Yet, the landscape of available camera gear is constantly evolving, and today there are more options than ever before. Instead of just one or two dominant companies, you now have outstanding systems from no less than seven manufacturers.

    I do a lot of wandering at dawn, taking photos of the city as it wakes. Mostly I am on my own, but occasionally I come across someone, a worker or a person coming home from a party. In Paris, a few summers back, I came across this guy. “Take my photo, friend!” he said to me. So, of course, I did. He was brash, but when I was done he hugged me and carried on with his early morning adventures. If only all interactions with strangers, when I’m out with my camera, could be that easy! But, unfortunately, they are not. So when you don’t have random strangers accosting you on the…

(I have a preset that is applied on import usually.) The first step that sets the tone for the image and helps clarify the editing is getting the crop and composition how I like it. I crop to the image, not to a set ratio, but some folks prefer to keep certain ratios for printing… it is up to you. Since the main story of the image is the boy and his bike, there is a lot of extraneous area that can be cropped. For action…
