When issues arise at Disney with Guests and inappropriate behavior, Disney cast members and security typically handle the situation and escort the problematic Guest out of the park if necessary. However, sometimes the situation is a little more serious and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office must intervene. We learn all that the Sheriff’s Office is doing to help at Walt Disney World Resort when the Sheriff’s Office releases its report on arrests made at the resort — whether at theme parks, resort hotels or Disney Springs.

According to the recently released sheriff’s report, a man was arrested in Disney Springs when he was caught with two firearms and multiple rounds of ammunition, in addition to a knife. The sheriff’s report says Aaron Lopez, 35, triggered the metal detector as he tried to enter Disney Springs. Lopez was brought in to have his bag investigated, and the Disney security guard he dealt with issued the following statement:

“I told him I was going to search his bag and he told me he had a folding knife in his bag. I told him to show me the knife and then I said I had to search his bag. He still hasn’t put it on the table at this point. Then he goes on to say, “Oh, there’s something else here besides a knife I want to put back in my car.” -turned and walked away.

Lopez returning to his car worried the security guard, and an Orange County police officer and Disney Springs cast member grabbed Lopez before he returned to his car. On his person, the police found not only the folding knife, but also a Glock handgun and numerous cartridges. He told officers he had a valid concealed carry permit, which means he is allowed to carry a firearm in public, but the permit was not produced. The gun did not have a serial number when the officer looked in his system, but Lopez said he submitted the paperwork to have a serial number assigned to it.

This isn’t the first time a guest has been arrested for attempting to smuggle a firearm onto Disney property. In 2020, just three days after EPCOT reopened, a guest was arrested for having a gun and marijuana in his child’s diaper bag. Another man was arrested for having a gun in his stroller and said he forgot she was there.

It is extremely important for guests to remember that firearms – or weapons of any kind – are STRICTLY PROHIBITED at Walt Disney World. While the state of Florida can allow people to walk around with a gun if they have the proper paperwork, Disney is privately owned. That means Disney can make and enforce any rules they want, and they don’t allow weapons (including things like pepper spray) on any of their properties.

Peak Design offers two versions of the travel tripod, one in carbon fiber (£599/$649.95) and the other, reviewed here, in aluminium. Aside from the pattern of the carbon fiber weave, both tripods look identical and have the same maximum and minimum heights, but at 1.56kg the aluminum version weighs 290g more than the carbon fiber version ( see our separate review of the Peak Design Travel Carbon Fiber Tripod (opens in a new tab)).

The travel tripod has 5 section legs that allow it to fold down to 39.1cm, but its narrow diameter of less than 8cm is what really impresses. Rather than round, the leg tubes are shaped to fit tightly around the center column to reduce packaged diameter.

“Spotting scope” is kind of a misnomer. Yes, you can spot creatures with one, but that’s not the best use for your tall glass. The right way to aim for big game in open country is to do your first scouting with binoculars, then take out the spotting scope for closer examination. I know this from hard experience. When I was young and green, I used to scan distant hillsides with my spotter, thinking that all the extra magnification would help me pull in the woods, sides, and rumps of distant meadows and woodland edges. . Instead, the heat waves distorted my vision, the field of vision was too narrow and I had to stop regularly because I had a headache.

These days I start my glass with 12x binoculars. But I also added a piece of equipment that made a huge difference: a binocular tripod adapter. You might not think at first that strapping your bino to a tripod would be so much better than just resting it on it, but it is, and you’ll spot more critters than you otherwise would.

What makes this system better

A binocular is the best optic for finding animals because the dual eyepiece design doubles your field of view. And the lower power, compared to a spotter, is an asset and not a defect. As long as you buy a quality class and get yours in 12x or 15x, you’ll have the perfect combination of power and a larger viewing area, and the ability to glass for hours without having to reach the ibuprofen.

When you mount your bino on a high-end bino adapter and attach that adapter to a tripod, you get the same level of stability as when you slap a spotter on a tripod. Shake is eliminated and you can pan and sweep in a smooth grid pattern on the terrain. Compared to using a spotter, it allows you to see more countries, see it faster and more thoroughly, and I promise you’ll find more game.

I used this glazing system on a recent bighorn sheep hunt, and it was super effective. For 19 days I not only spotted lots of rams, but also put my 12X binoculars on loads of mule deer and elk. When I located a group of rams or another animal I wanted to take a closer look at, I swapped my bino for my spotter, then was able to zoom in and assess the headgear. There were also several times when the binoculars locked onto a log, twig, branch, white plastic bag, etc. Often these things look like an animal, but when the observer steps outside it is easy to see that they are not. This is the purpose of a spotting scope – clarification and confirmation.

A quick tip worth mentioning here is that you need to pay close attention to detail when locating game, or what you think is game, with your binoculars before moving on to your spotter. Too many times over the years I got excited, rushed the process, didn’t get my bearings around what I was looking at through my binoculars, then couldn’t find it when I’m passed to my observer.

Two years ago, when I was looking for bull elk, I was sure what I was looking at with my binoculars was nothing more than a fallen tree branch behind some brush. By the time I switched to my observer, the light had changed, and since I hadn’t taken any landmarks, I couldn’t move what I was looking at. Luckily my buddy kept his pan head locked so his tripod head didn’t move during the swap. What I thought was a branch turned out to be a 330 inch elk lying against a giant ponderosa pine.

The perfect setup for glass play

When I’m packing mule deer, sheep, or upland elk, the bino around my neck is a 12X model, and that’s what I strap to my tripod. My spotter is the Leupold SX-5 Santiam HD 27-55×80. I use a Leupold Alpine CF-425 tripod, and Leupold’s Quick Rod Binocular Tripod Adapter is in my bag. If I’m near the truck, I prefer Leupold’s Binocular Field Clamp Adapter. Both adapters work with almost any binocular, although the Field Clamp version is more versatile. (There are also many good adapters offered by other manufacturers that are worth looking into.) The Field Clamp is also a little heavier than the Stem, so I prefer the latter for hunts off the beaten path.

When I get to my glassware area, I take a quick scan with my 12x binoculars – in case there are any easy catches – then set up my tripod and attach the binos via the adapter. When using a rod type adapter, you need to remove the small set screw with the logo in the bridge of the binoculars and screw in the binocular adapter screw. The process is simple and takes seconds. If you opt for a clamp-style binocular adapter, you simply open the jaws and then close them around one of the binocular barrels.

binocular forceps

Once your binos are secure, adjust the tripod settings before you start scanning. Make sure you can swing your head left, right, up, and down smoothly, but with some tension so things don’t get sloppy. Take your time and scan carefully. If you find a creature you want to examine more closely, leave your tripod pan head locked, then remove the bino adapter and replace it with your spotting scope mount. It’s so easy.

Don’t forget the part about locking the pan head, like I did with this big bull. Above all, don’t roll back the larger process by starting with your spotter. Glass sessions must begin with binoculars, and the spotter only comes out for clarification before starting your rod.

The Orca OR-516 is a deep, easy-to-use roller bag for video shooters https://ukdigitala.com/the-orca-or-516-is-a-deep-easy-to-use-roller-bag-for-video-shooters/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 09:00:00 +0000 https://ukdigitala.com/the-orca-or-516-is-a-deep-easy-to-use-roller-bag-for-video-shooters/ For five years I’ve been using a ThinkTank Photo Airport International bag for my video needs, and I love it to bits.

For five years I’ve been using a ThinkTank Photo Airport International bag for my video needs, and I love it to bits. Unfortunately, as the years passed and my kit grew, I needed more space. I didn’t want to carry a second suitcase, so I was looking for a similar wheeled suitcase but with more space. After looking at a few options, I got the recently announced OR-516 from Orca for $323.00.

What can I say, I love it. It has a lot of character and lots of space and protection. For the full review, skip it.

Orc OR-516 Size

It was love at first sight, I managed to put on not only my kit of lenses and bodies, but also all my audio kit, cables, monitor, and some trinkets. There’s a full “shopping list” below if you’re interested. but for now, let’s just say, it’s a lot.

As for the specifications, the internal size of the bag is 50x33x18cm and outside is 55x40x25cm. (19.7x13x7″ and 21.5×15.8×10″). It’s not much different from many other bags, other than the bag is as deep as the white rabbit’s hole, so you can place many items vertically to save space.

Certainly, with this kind of bag, there is room for padding, and there are plenty of pads for you to build the case of your dreams. (Thirteen, if you insist). I actually removed three pads to make room for my Sony FX3 neck. (This handle is a storage nightmare and probably deserves a separate post). The extra space also allowed for three hard cases with

  • Nano claps, and mini-arm for mounting.
  • My audio adapter kit: PL adapters, splitters and short cables
  • 1/4-20 props

These three bags make it very easy to know where everything is on the set. I don’t have to dig too deep or fiddle around to get these little pieces.

Storage and compartments Orca OR-516

Outside you get:

  • External padded laptop pocket (up to) 17″
  • 2 outside pockets for phone, passport or other small documents.
  • a top pocket with rubber slots for memory cards and a cable to extend a USB battery outside the bag.

On the inside

  • There is another 17″ laptop sleeve on the lid, as well as two zippered pockets for small accessories, cables or papers.
  • A nice spacious yellow padded compartment with 13 dividers.

The two zippered pockets take up the entire lid making it extremely efficient, but a little messy for smaller items. I would like the next release to split one of these units into two smaller pouches.

Or-516 Overview

The bag is incredibly durable and well made. In fact, it’s on par with my previous Airport International which is still going strong after five years, hundreds of shoots and dozens of flights. According to Orca, it’s weatherproof, and I plan to test it next winter. The wheels are very smooth and the zippers are fantastic. Of particular note is the extendable handle which seems extremely sturdy and will take a beating and survive. Unlike some of my other rollers, it has no wobble.

As I mentioned before, the material of the bag is super strong, but it comes at a price. The smooth black surface attracts marks like a magnet. He had smears before I even took him out in the field, and after being on a few productions he’s not black anymore, hey. It doesn’t look like anything functional is damaged; It’s just the look that’s a little off. The Think Tank Airport International and the Manfrotto Pro Light Reloader are made from different fabrics that don’t get dirty so quickly.

The back of the case has two plastic knobs designed to raise the case above ground level so the back does not touch. Still, I wonder if the floor is clean before putting the bag down. I think I will get over this feeling soon. One thing that would have helped is to add two internal straps that prevent the case lid from opening all the way.

Or-516 Portability

Let’s start with the fact that portability isn’t really a word. That said, I’m going to use this to describe how the bag moves.

When the bag is totally empty, it weighs about five kilos and change. That’s a lot for an empty bag. I understand that the thin padding, nice zippers, and sturdy construction all impact the weight of the bag, but it’s still not a lightweight bag. Of course, no one really cares as long as you tow the bag like a cart. Between the smooth wheels and the perfect balance, it rolls like butter.

Weight comes into play when we look at back systems. Yes, the bag has a set of straps that you can expose and use as a backpack. But for me, with two Sony FX3 bodies, three lenses, two monitors, seven batteries and a few other bits and peace, I get a 21 kilo bag. It’s not something I want to carry on my back. If your gear weighs less, you’ll find the back system quite handy.

Outstanding Features

The Gold-516 has a few noteworthy features. Some are standard and some are unique, but you should know them because they will be make your life easier.

  • Tripod strap – as with many wheeled cases. the Or-516 comes with a Velcro strap to attach a tripod to the side. This makes transporting a tripod on location super easy.
  • External USB connection. The top of the bag has a USB port. The other side goes inside the case and connects to a USB battery (say the huge Tether Tools ONsite power bank). Now you can charge your devices out of the case without having power banks everywhere.
  • Memory card storage – the small pocket keeps your memory cards accessible and orderly in a bunch of small pockets. I prefer my hard case, but if you’re only using a few cards, you’ll appreciate the ease of access.

What happens inside an Orca Or-516:

As promised, here’s everything inside the 516:

Conclusion

What can I say, I’m a sucker for good roller photography cases. And the Orca Or-516 is one of the best I’ve used so far. If you need a big case that can go on a plane with plenty of space and features but don’t mind a few dust marks, for $323 this is the bag for you!

MarketsandMarkets Research Pvt. ltd.

Chicago, June 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to the MarketsandMarkets™ report, the “LiDAR Market by Technology (2D, 3D, 4D), Component (Laser Scanners, Navigation and Positioning Systems), Installation Type (Airborne and Ground-Based), Scope, Service, End-Use Application, and Region – Global Forecasts up to in 2026″ expected to grow by USD 1.3 billion in 2021 and reach USD 3.4 billion by 2026; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 21.6% from 2021 to 2026.

The growing adoption of LiDAR in construction applications and engineering, the emergence of 4D LiDAR, the growing adoption of LiDAR systems in UAVs, the use of LiDAR in geographic information system applications ( GIS) and relaxation of regulations related to the use of commercial drones in different applications are some of the major drivers for the growth of the LiDAR market. However, the easy availability of low-cost, lightweight photogrammetry systems and security threats from drones and self-driving cars are restraining the growth of the LiDAR market. Increased investment in LiDAR startups by automotive giants, development of better geospatial solutions using sensor fusion, opportunities for long-term SWIR-based design, technological evolutions with the adoption of flash LiDAR, solid state, MEMS, and other LiDAR technologies, and Initiatives undertaken by governments of different countries to encourage the use of UAV LiDAR for large-scale surveys are expected to provide growth opportunities for LiDAR market players over the course of the forecast period. Additionally, the limited availability of geospatial data and the high cost of LiDAR services pose challenges to the LiDAR market.

Ground-based LiDAR is expected to see the highest CAGR for the forecast period

In 2020, ground-based LiDAR accounted for a larger market share of the overall LiDAR market and is expected to witness a high CAGR from 2021 to 2026. The automotive sector is emerging as an application area for mobile ground-based LiDAR systems , and the number of high-end cars equipped with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) is increasing every year. Ground-based LiDAR systems are fixed or mobile and are also known as terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) technology. They are placed on a moving platform such as an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) or a sport utility vehicle (SUV) using a balance assembly and a tripod. Airborne LiDAR systems are more expensive than ground-based LiDAR systems. However, ground-based LiDAR systems are not able to scan every part of the surface. For example, vertical cliff faces cannot be scanned and rapidly changing surface conditions are difficult to track using this type of LiDAR systems. Ground-based LiDAR is also used for agricultural applications, for example, analyzing the properties of the oil palm canopy for the identification of various diseases. Ground-based mobile LiDAR systems are mounted on a mobile platform, preferably a ground vehicle. The advantage of being vehicle mounted is that it allows LiDAR to scan large areas accessible by road and the use of LiDAR in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) applications is expected to further fuel the growth of the LiDAR systems market.

Mechanical LiDAR type will account for the largest market share during the forecast period

On the basis of type, the LiDAR market has been segmented into solid-state LiDAR and mechanical LiDAR. In 2020, the mechanical LiDAR segment accounted for a larger market share of the overall LiDAR market compared to solid-state LiDAR. This growth is attributed to the high demand for mechanical LiDAR in applications such as ADAS and driverless cars, corridor mapping and environmental surveying. However, the semiconductor market is expected to grow at a higher CAGR from 2021 to 2026. The higher CAGR of the market is attributed to the increasing range of such applications in automotive and robotics industries. Mechanically scanned LiDAR by physically rotating a laser/receiver assembly, or using a rotating mirror to direct a light beam is used to collect data over a wide area of ​​up to 360 degrees.

3D LiDAR technology is estimated to hold a significant share of the market

Based on technology, the LIDAR market is segmented into 2D, 3D, and 4D LiDAR. In 2020, the 3D LiDAR segment accounted for the largest market share among other segments of the LiDAR market. The main factor contributing to the dominance of 3D LiDAR is the widespread adoption of 3D LiDAR in applications such as environmental, meteorology, corridor mapping, engineering and cartography. However, the 4D LiDAR market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the strong adoption of 4D LiDAR in applications such as ADAS, driverless cars and robotics. Use cases for 4D LiDAR are also the entertainment industry, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), and AR/VR.

In 1999, Frank Goerhardt, a book printing engineer at a small art press in Verona, Italy, received a call from Benedikt Taschen. The German publisher, known for its experimental art books, wanted to create a 2-foot-tall volume and 50 books of Helmut Newton photographs – a scale that would make reading feel like attending an exhibition in a private gallery. And he wanted to print 10,000 of them. “There was no machine on the market that could do that!” Goerhardt remembers. Such a large art book should be sewn by hand. If Goerhardt’s press was running at full capacity—it could bind a maximum of 40 books a week—it would have taken nearly five years to complete the order. So he asked the other European presses and kept hearing that it was impossible. On the verge of giving up, he found a bookbinder in northern Italy who would build a custom machine if Taschen paid up front. With this, the publisher’s SUMO series of extremely large and very heavy books – which may even surpass the Newton edition – began.

Taschen presents books as fetish objects — objects to be revered and coveted. And a group of voracious collectors are eager to oblige, ready to drop $25,000 on this Helmut Newton book (if a copy ever goes on sale) or $40,000 for a collection of Ai Weiwei Papercuts locked in a shell. bright red. Goerhardt, who is now Taschen’s head of production, a position he held for nearly 20 years, knows the industry so well he can tell a book’s provenance just by the smell. ink on the page. This honed sensibility helps him understand how to make a $6,000 book look like a Ferrari engine, print Neil Leifer’s boxing photographs on ready-to-hang aluminum panels, and replicate the carrying cases that Renzo Piano uses for its architectural models. “We’re extremely open-minded to trying new things,” says Goerhardt.

Perhaps even more than the books, the best examples of Taschen’s obsessive approach are his personalized media, meticulously crafted for each edition they accompany. However, these are not derived from the company’s maximalist tendencies. “The original idea came from Benedikt, who was absolutely right,” says Goerhardt. “You have to add a desk or stand with the book because no one knows where to put them.”

The stands are essentially miniature works of architecture created by designers and architects like Philippe Starck, Shigeru Ban and Marc Newson. The first, for the Newton book, was designed by Starck, who was the architect of the Taschen stores at the time. He created a metal stand with four legs supported by braces that folded flat and could be shipped with the book. Collectors criticized the way it tipped over when the weight of the book shifted from the right side to the left as they read it, but Taschen praised its lightness, an attribute that informed subsequent lecterns.

More recently, Renzo Piano designed the stand for a new SUMO book on Amazonian images by photographer Sebastião Salgado. “When we met Renzo, he said, ‘When you have this book open, it must fly like an albatross, this heavy bird in the middle of nothing,'” Goerhardt explains. Piano wanted the structure to be as subtle as possible, and Goerhardt wanted to make sure it could survive a trip to Singapore or Australia in pristine condition. The architect designed one that was supported by tensile forces, a structural construction technique that Piano used throughout his career, notably in his design for the Center Pompidou and the Columbus exhibition in Genoa. Taschen, Piano and the manufacturer developed a dozen prototypes and tested their resistance to shipping. They found that the vibration loosened the structure, so they tweaked the design – using larger steel rods, adding adjustable screws to level the bracket, and squeezing some stabilizer liquid into it – to prevent it to open during transport.

Taschen worked with the Gio Ponti Archive and furniture maker Molteni&C to revive an archival design by the Italian architect to accompany a monograph of his work.

In rare cases, rather than commissioning an original design, the subject provided the concept themselves. For a book Gio Ponti SUMO, published in 2021, Taschen worked with Ponti’s grandson, Salvatore Licitra, who also designed stores for the publisher. Licitra, who manages the Ponti archives, found the designer’s drawings for a square version of the Arlecchino tables he had created for a private commission. Only two prototypes were produced, and Taschen commissioned Molteni&C, an Italian high-end furniture manufacturer, to create the SUMO editions. “We thought it was a beautiful artistic vision to achieve – and we wanted the real thing,” Goerhardt says.

The most complicated stand to date came with a collector’s edition book about Ferrari. With its red casing, industrial bolts and aluminum pipes, it mimics the look of a Ferrari engine and is almost as complicated as making one. Newson – the industrial designer behind the Apple Watch, the red Leica camera and the Lockheed lounge chair, the most expensive designer item ever sold – designed both the book and the stand. For the aluminum case, Taschen worked with a Spanish automotive manufacturer, another supplier provided the decorative rubber buttons that you lift to open the case, and another team color matched and painted the case in the exact shade of red that Ferrari uses on its engines. An Italian producer who makes exhaust pipes for motorcycles contributed to the stand’s polished pipe-like legs. Taschen also convinced the maker of horse emblems mounted on Ferrari hoods to produce a special one for the cover of the book, which is made from the same leather used to cover car seats. The project lasted two years.

However, not all desks involve a dozen vendors or extreme testing. For multiple projects, Taschen has adapted its simplest medium: an acrylic tripod from Newson that accompanies SUMO Edition books on the works of Annie Leibowitz, David Bailey and David Hockney. The design is changed slightly for each title – black legs for Leibowitz so it looks more like a photographer’s tripod, primary colors for Hockney that reference his vibrant palette – but in concept it remains the same. “It is the most convincing table from a practical and technical point of view,” says Goerhardt.

Lecterns may have been born out of this pragmatic need, but over the past 20 years they have become works of art in their own right.

Nova Scotia referendum on new fire station, other upgrades Tuesday – The Daily Gazette https://ukdigitala.com/nova-scotia-referendum-on-new-fire-station-other-upgrades-tuesday-the-daily-gazette/ Fri, 03 Jun 2022 23:04:00 +0000 https://ukdigitala.com/nova-scotia-referendum-on-new-fire-station-other-upgrades-tuesday-the-daily-gazette/ SCOTLAND – Nova Scotia residents will go to the polls on Tuesday to decide whether the village should bond about $13.8 million over 24 to 26 years to build a new fire hall and renovate the current village hall, which also houses the police department.

SCOTLAND – Nova Scotia residents will go to the polls on Tuesday to decide whether the village should bond about $13.8 million over 24 to 26 years to build a new fire hall and renovate the current village hall, which also houses the police department.

Over the years, the village has accumulated boxes of documents and studies evoking the need to modernize its facilities, which are at least a century old. None of the facilities meet the needs of the employees who work there or the tasks that come with their jobs, officials said. They also don’t meet certain safety standards, including those that make buildings compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Mayor Tom Gifford, also a volunteer firefighter with the department, pushed his final year on the board to get the bond approved so the village could move forward with the project.

In 2008, the village held a referendum for the project, which at that time was estimated to be worth over $8 million. It failed.

Prior to the final public information session on Thursday evening, the public was invited to tour the facilities.

Amanda Gonzalez-Barone, owner of Girl Fight Fitness, who is also running for a seat on the village council and attended the forums, said she had to wiggle her tripod around the tight spaces of the fire station in order to illustrate the conditions for those who could not attend the open day.

She and others recognize the need for the facilities, but are concerned about the cost since taxes have increased in the village over the years and this project would increase taxes.

“We need to have a better fire station,” said one resident. “We need a better police station. We can’t afford the cost.

The fire department has a maximum of four career firefighters, a minimum of three stationed on duty during the day, as well as the chief and a maximum of three or a minimum of two at night. Apart from this new information, much of what was said in previous meetings was reiterated to the handful of people who attended in person with two people on zoom.

The project involves the construction of a new fire station of approximately 14,000 square feet in part of the municipal land behind the village hall. This area is down from a space of nearly 16,000 square feet previously mentioned. This change allowed for the addition of parking spaces to what remained of the land. This lot currently allows for 57 spaces and would have 41 spaces under the new plan.

The size reduction also meant a cost reduction from $9.9 million to $8.75 million.

The department has seven vehicles that would be housed at the facility – four large rooms and three small rooms.

The proposed building would be 80 feet in length with four doors. There would be three bays with two vehicles each, then room for a vehicle to park in a smaller bay. The other half of the project plans to spend $5 million to renovate the existing village hall to better meet the needs of village and police department employees and meet various compliance requirements, including ADA standards.

If this goes ahead, that means a Nova Scotia resident whose home is valued at $100,000 could face a tax increase of $193 a year.

If approved, the design process will begin and then the village will have to bid on the project, said Sean Foran, vice president of fire protection services for Hueber Breuer, the Syracuse-based construction management company. with which the village works. If the offers come back too high, the project will not be carried out.

“The village cannot spend more than what is publicly approved,” Foran said.

The only way he could go ahead with a project that costs more than the $13.8 million he wants to bond is to get public approval for more money.
