Powered by Firework The game of tennis has been a number of legendary players who graced the courts. From the likes of Rod Laver in the past to the current World No. 1 Novak Djokovic. One of the decorated doubles players and Indian tennis icon Leander Paes names the player he finds to be above all, and no surprise, its Roger Federer.Advertisement Image Courtesy: PTI/The HinduBack in December 2019, Leander Paes announced that he will retire by the end of 2020. The former world no. 1 and a staggering 18 times Grand Slam doubles winner was present  in a recent interview session with the Times of India, where he discussed his future and post-retirement plans, as well as on his doubles partners and memorable moments from his long spanning careers.However, when asked about Roger Federer, the 46 year old revered him as the greatest player of all time.Advertisement “To me, Federer is the greatest player of all time. Rod Laver has won the full Grand Slam as an amateur and as a pro, but to me Roger with what he has done in his career is phenomenal on every surface.” Paes told TOI.A record 20 times Grand Slam singles winner, Federer is loved and admired by millions of followers, and Paes is no different, as he recalled one incident 20 years ago.Advertisement He continued: “I beat him at the Indian Wells qualifying in 2000. Federer was an upcoming player then. He rifled a backhand against me with straight arm, straight up the line that went like a laser beam. My god, I had never seen anyone do that. Not even Andre Agassi.”The Swiss veteran is renowned for his stellar backhand stokes, and even Paes was in awe when he saw a young Federer in action.However, Paes believes that its going to be none other than Rafael Nadal who will topple Federer’s 20 Grand Slam tally in no time: “But I feel Nadal is going to overtake Federer’s tally of 20 Slam wins.”The 33 year old Spaniard is on 19 Grand Slam titles, the second-most in history for a male player.Also read-Indian tennis legend Leander Paes announces that he will retire at the end of 2020This video of Roger Federer dancing during a tennis match will put a smile on your face!

My 1st Commandment: Make Detailed Estimates

first_img My 1st CommandmentMy 2nd CommandmentMy 3rd CommandmentMy 4th CommandmentMy 5th CommandmentMy 6th CommandmentMy 7th Commandment You may hope for the best case, but do not budget for it. In fact, you should budget for realistic scenarios. This means we must include small direct construction cost items like generators, temporary air-conditioning units on-site, utilities, weather protection systems and floor coverings, mid-production house cleaning, etc. But with green building or remodeling, some of the people you are working will be new and you may not have a track record of working with them. So, unlike with your longtime trade partners, you really have to be diligent in interviewing your new trade partners to find out what they may not have included in their estimates. You may need to budget extra time for them to complete their work until you know how reliable the work schedules are that they gave you.And don’t forget to budget for systems failures that need to be repaired. For example, best green building practices require you to seal your ductwork during construction to keep your construction dust and debris from getting inside. Has your HVAC partner budgeted for this? Have you? Will sealing them one time work, or will they have to be resealed every week? Will your painter apply no-VOC paint for the first time? Has he or you allowed extra time for the paint crew to get a feel for how the paint flows, or do you just have your regular number of weeks allocated for them to complete their work?Thus, in order to follow our prescription to “first, do know harm,” we have make sure we have put something in for everything, no matter how small. Interview your trade partners extra hard. That goes for your production managers and superintendents. Get closer to and talk with your suppliers and manufacturers’ reps more than you ever have before. Ask lots of questions. Talk to your customers and help keep their expectations appropriately aligned. Raise your budget for 1/2% to 1% for slippage if need be. Expect the unexpected. Because whether you are rock climbing or building green, remember what the sticker on my laptop says: “It’s a significant emotional investment the first time you do it,” so you better be getting paid to do it right! So having devoted two blogs to stating the case for making a profit when building green, how or where do we start? I think some variation on the Hippocratic Oath of the fourth century B.C. would be first. You know, primum non nocere, “first, do no harm.” I guess back in the day when medicine was really in its infancy, Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, got together with some other doctors and they agreed on some ground rules for the practice of medicine, including one that essentially said, before we try to fix the patient, let’s at least agree we will not make things worse by harming him.As the green-built world goes mainstream in residential housing, I think we too should agree on ground rules for our businesses. For green builders and remodelers, my variation of the 2,400-year-old Hippocratic Oath would be “above all else, lose no money” or “above all else, do not leave any money on the table.” Because just like a good doctor, before we can make things better we have to agree not to make things worse. And if we are going to start out losing money when building green, we will definitely be making things worse. In fact, we owe it to ourselves, our employees, our families, our larger community, and yes, our customers, to make sure we are profitable in building green.So the first commandment we need to learn when following the Green Built Hippocratic Oath is: 1. Put something in for everything. And that can be kind of tricky for someone new to green building because, in many cases, we don’t know what “everything” is to begin with. In traditional building, or what I like to call “obsolete building,” the more detail in our estimates, the better. If our estimating and production systems are accurate and reliable, we should be seeing a slippage of no greater than 2%. That means our actual construction costs end up being within 2% or less than the budget. We do this in part by learning that no matter how small the item, we must account for it in the estimate.

Hands-On Review: the Yeti Nano from Blue Microphones

first_imgYeti Nano vs. YetiSo, why would you want to buy the Nano instead of the Yeti? The answer is in the name — size. With the table stands included, the Yeti is 0.81 lb (0.37 kg) heavier than the Nano. With the Nano, you’ll enjoy more free space on your desk, as well as a lighter pack when traveling. These are important features for many users.So, what features does the Nano trade for its small size? On the Yeti, you’ll find two additional polar patterns, as well as an extra condenser mic capsule. The Yeti also has a handy Gain adjustment knob on the back of the unit. To adjust the gain on the Nano, you’ll need to install the free Blue Sherpa companion application, which can also perform firmware updates.The price difference between the two, however, is almost nonexistent. While the Yeti is listed at $129, you can find it elsewhere for nearly the same price as the Nano. Also, if you decide that you don’t want to spend $99 on a microphone, check out the lower-priced Snowball models. Or, if you have money to spare, you can get the Blue Yeti Pro, which comes with an XLR plug.AccessoriesSpeaking of extra money, if you have some, Blue has made a number of accessories available. While the Yeti Nano includes a padded desk stand, it can still pick up a lot of vibrations and noise from a keyboard and mouse. To avoid this, you can buy Blue’s compatible Compass Boom Arm and Radius III suspension mount. And again, this will help clear up an overcrowded desk.All images via Blue Designs.Looking for more video gear reviews?

Made for the wild, it is affordable, aesthetically pleasing, and travel-worthy.Perform a simple Google search of USB microphones, and one of the first names you’ll see is Blue. Blue Designs has a number of popular plug-and-play USB microphones, including the legendary Snowball and Yeti models. The Blue Yeti is particularly well-known, showing up as a bestseller on both Amazon and B&H. The popularity of the Yeti has inspired a new model — the Yeti Nano.Blue designed the Yeti Nano with podcasting, YouTube productions, game streaming, Skype/VoIP, and voice-over work in mind. Don’t let the name fool you — the Nano is exactly as it sounds. It is essentially a slimmed-down version of the Blue Yeti. But before we compare models, let’s have a closer look at the Nano itself.Size MattersYou can pick up a Nano for $99.99, in a variety of different colors, including Shadow Grey, Vivid Blue, Red Onyx, and Cubano Gold. With the table stand included, it weighs 1.39 lb (.63 kg), rises 8.31” (211 mm) high, and sits at 4.29” (109 mm) in diameter. One of the reasons these microphones are so popular is that they are plug-and-play, compatible with both Mac OS and Windows.The Nano comes with two Blue proprietary, 14 mm condenser capsules, supporting sample rates up to 24-bit/48 KHz. It’s a side-address microphone, meaning that the front of the mic should face you when recording. Don’t be one of those YouTubers talking into the top of this microphone; you’ll pay for it in the comments section. (You want the Blue logo pointing toward you.)On the front of the Nano, you’ll find a headphone volume dial that doubles as a mic mute button. If the light is green, the mic is hot. Red is muted. On the back, you’ll find a button to switch between two record pickup patterns—cardioid and omnidirectional. Cardioid is best for recording a subject directly in front of the microphone, while omnidirectional can record a group or ambience.On the bottom of the mic, you’ll find a standard ⅛” (3.5 mm), no-latency headphone port, micro-USB port, and a mount. It comes with a 3/8”-to-5/8” adapter, allowing users to mount the Nano on a standard microphone stand, as well as Blue’s Radius III suspension mount, and/or Compass Boom Arm.

FIZ Systems (Focus, Iris, Zoom) and How to Use Them

first_imgIn this article, we take a look at the evolution and application of the FIZ system — including their unparalleled ability to control the camera remotely.Over the last five years, it’s become standard to pull focus remotely on most feature film and television sets. By not needing to touch the camera, the focus puller doesn’t run the risk of interfering with the operator and eliminates the weight and power requirements of having a second focus monitor on the camera body. The focus puller can stand off to the side, out of the shot, and do the job via wireless transmission.Since most cine lenses have not just one gear but three — one each for focus, iris, and zoom — it was only a matter of time before systems evolved that had three motors, allowing the focus puller to change any or all of these at the same time.They have three main applications:When the camera is difficult to access, such as crane, gimbal, or car work.When shooting long, unbroken takes that go from light to dark areas.When the operator has to work at a distance, or is isolated from the director and DP.A FIZ system consists of a brain unit that attaches to the camera body, usually powered by a central V-mount with a Gold Mount Battery. This brain unit then powers and controls the one, two, or three motors attached to the front of the lens, typically mounted to 15mm or 19mm rods.Some brain units can also add camera control. The Teradek RT system has different brains (called CTRL units) that can trigger a camera’s record command, ISO, and even shutter angle on some cameras.An operator controls the motors with a hand unit that resembles a typical follow focus control, but it has added axis to adjust the other settings. Just like the marking rings you would add to a follow focus control, FIZ systems have markable plates for slider and zoom as well.The entire setup takes practice to operate, but it’s a pretty smooth learning curve. The FIZ operator rehearses the shot just as they would with any straight focus job, and it’s unlikely that they’ll be called on to adjust all three parameters at the same time.Zoom is by far the most conspicuous adjustment that you can make mid-shot, and it draws the most attention to itself. On a recent shoot involving a two-and-a-half-minute Steadicam shot, we wanted to zoom in at certain points and hide the zoom in the panning movement of the camera. It does create a slight zolly effect, but it feels organic when done right — as long as you don’t zoom too much.We also learned that FIZ is a great solution for lighting single-take scenes. Rather than trying to match the light levels between all environments, you can pull iris as you go between exposures. This creates a very natural feeling of the viewer’s eye adjusting to a darker or lighter space.Once over $25,000, and proprietary to camera makers like ARRI, FIZ systems have come down in price. Teradek’s RT system works with any camera and is less than half the price. More players are entering the market, and soon this kind of control will be available to anyone who wants to explore it.Cover image via Teradek.Looking for more cinematography tips and tricks?

Durant delivers on both ends, Warriors top Cavaliers

first_imgCayetano: 4 social media groups behind SEA Games ‘sabotage’ Kevin Love had 31 points and a season-best 18 rebounds, while James contributed 20 points, six rebounds and six assists in a rivalry missing one key piece: Warriors star Stephen Curry, who missed his eighth straight game with a sprained right ankle.Thompson scored 24 points and Draymond Green had a triple-double with 12 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists. It was Golden State’s 12th win in 13 games after its 11-game winning streak was snapped by Denver on Sunday (Manila time).Warriors rookie Jordan Bell traveled with 2:13 left and James tied it. Bell made up for that mistake with a key offensive rebound and pass to Thompson for his fourth 3.James’ 3-pointer with 10:39 left pulled Cleveland within one, but Green answered with a 3 and Andre Iguodala scored two of his nine points the next time down. In another key sequence, Durant blocked Tristan Thompson’s shot with 6:23 to go and dunked moments later.No surprise, the up-tempo, running rivals provided high entertainment once again. The Warriors last June captured a second championship in three years against James and the Cavaliers.ADVERTISEMENT Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC “I forgot all about it,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said with a chuckle.The teams will see each other again soon, playing Jan. 15 in Cleveland.KD requested James for his defensive assignment, to which he explained simply, “I just like guarding my position.”The Cavs, having won six of seven and playing for the first time since Thursday, had their run of scoring at least 100 points end at 26 games.The Warriors were at nearly full strength again aside from Curry, who could return this week once he goes through some scrimmages at practice.Center Zaza Pachulia was available but didn’t play after sitting out seven consecutive games, while Shaun Livingston came back after missing four games with a sore right knee.Bell — who addressed the sellout crowd at midcourt moments before tipoff — started at center and had eight points and six rebounds.SHOOTING WOESThe Cavs’ 31.8-percent shooting was the lowest by a Warriors opponent in nearly four years, since Charlotte shot 31.2 percent from the field on Feb. 4, 2014.“We just didn’t make shots,” Lue said. 8th Top Leaders Forum assessed the progress of public-private efforts in building climate and disaster resilient communities View comments Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) reacts after blocking a shot by Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James during the second half of an NBA basketball game.

So both teams look different.”Warriors coach Steve Kerr knows just the uniforms are enough to get everybody going — and this marked the third straight Christmas matchup between the franchises, alternating home floors based on who won the title.“It’s always great to play the Cavs, they’re an awesome team,” Kerr said. “LeBron is so amazing and it’s so fun to feel the energy in the building when the two teams get together. Neither team will look the same as we will even a month from now because Steph and Isaiah Thomas both should be back, hopefully they’ll both be back. … But it doesn’t even matter sometimes, just the two uniforms in the same building gets people going.”TIP-INSCavaliers: Lue isn’t yet ready to guess when Thomas will return following his right hip injury. “He is progressing very well,” Lue said. “The most important thing is that he is getting to practice and playing 5-on-5 and having a chance to experience feeling well after it and not having soreness.” … Cleveland is 19-3 since Nov. 11, including 8-3 on the road.Warriors: Durant averaged 32 points over his seven previous Christmas Day games. … Golden State played its fifth consecutive Christmas game and seventh in eight. … The Warriors were 10 of 37 on 3s after they went a dismal 3 for 27 from 3-point range in losing to the Nuggets. … Kerr began his pregame session by thanking all of the arena staff and Golden State employees for their service and for working on the holiday. … Thompson’s holiday sneakers might have stood out most: neon green on the left foot, neon pink on the right.
