Google Art Project Takes Visitors Inside Museums Using Street View

first_img9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Tags:#art#Google#web Related Posts curt hopkinscenter_img 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Google’s new “Art Project” makes art viewable at high resolution online and also employs its Street View technology to provide access to 17 top museums.The project uses Picasa and App Engine to provide high rez scans of 1,000 prominent pieces of art. It uses Street View to bring viewers in the virtual doors of MoMA, the Hermitage, the Tate, the British National Gallery, the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid, the Uffizi Gallery, the Van Gogh Van Gogh Museum and others. The images include a sample of “super high resolution” images and 1,000 “other images” from 400 artists, according to the Google blog.The samples seems to bridge an ocean of painting from European to Asian, modern to classical. The slideshow-style presentation seems a bit awkward, though the zoom is elegant. As a website, apparently not an app so far, it doesn’t rival Art Authority, which may be the gold standard for art history apps at this point, with over 40,000 images. But the ability to navigate some of the world’s most important museum makes the project exciting. Selecting a museum, you have the choice of viewing its art or taking the Street View-powered tour. The latter certainly helps to contextualize the former, at least in terms of understanding how we view art. “Visiting” the Frick, for instance, you can move about in the environment, pausing to click on the cross-shapes you see on paintings in order to view that painting outside Street View. The video below is interesting particularly when it shows how they got the “Street View” shots.

first_imgThe West Bengal CID on Friday arrested three top leaders of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) from Delhi. D.K.Pradhan, P.T. Ola and Tilak Chandra Roka were arrested from Gurugram, CID said. “They are being brought to Kolkata. We will see where they can be produced,” Nishat Pervez, DIG (Operations) of CID, told The Hindu. He said they were booked under several Sections of the IPC, including 307 (attempt to murder), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 120 B (criminal conspiracy).Meanwhile, GJM president Bimal Gurung has circulated a video message urging people to teach rebel GJM leader Binoy Tamang a lesson. Mr. Tamang has been nominated as chairperson of the newly constituted Gorkhaland Territorial Administration. “I have already said that these two [Mr. Tamang and Anit Thapa] are colluding with the State government to derail the Gorkhaland movement. I am urging the Gorkhas to punish them,” Mr. Gurung said. Mr. Tamang reacted by saying that there was “no gain indulging in immature politics and we have to move forward with a proper strategy while rectifying our past mistakes.”last_img read more

Back to back champs: Penguins beat Predators for Stanley Cup

first_imgWhat ‘missteps’? Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ LATEST STORIES READ: Penguins end Predators’ magical postseason runHaving won just three of 12 playoff series before this year, Nashville opened this postseason by eliminating the top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks in four games. In doing so, the Predators became the first eighth-seeded team to sweep a first-round series since the current playoff format was introduced in 1994. Nashville went through St. Louis and then Anaheim, with only captain Mike Fisher carrying any Cup Final experience on the roster.The stingy Predators found Pittsburgh was up to the task, with the Penguins taking the first two games on home ice. Nashville roared back at home to even things up, but the Penguins routed Nashville to set up Game 6.The Penguins ruined Nashville’s big party where the game coincided with the final night of CMA Music Festival, bringing more than 100,000 to downtown Nashville. Country star Luke Bryan serenaded fans from the rooftop of a honky-tonk in a performance that kicked off the television broadcast, and he also sang a four-song set for fans inside and outside the arena an hour before face-off.Faith Hill became the latest to sing the national anthem with husband, star Tim McGraw, giving her a hug once finished before waving a towel in each hand. At least five catfish hit the ice before the face-off.Then in a series that hadn’t featured even a single one-goal game was scoreless through the first 40 minutes. The Predators thought they had the first goal of the game, just like they did in Game 1 in Pittsburgh for being offsides, only to have referee Kevin Pollock wave it off immediately. He had whistled the play dead when he lost sight of the puck with Murray on the ice between him and the puck.Sissons tapped the puck into the net 67 seconds into the second period behind Murray’s back. Officials huddled, but the goal was not allowed.Murray also stopped Sissons on a breakaway midway through the second and also gloved a shot from Viktor Arvidsson later in the period.The Penguins also killed off 32 seconds of a 5-on-3 at 8:47 of the third after Trevor Daley punched Ryan Ellis with Olli Maatta already in the box for tripping. Murray made a big stop on a shot by Mattias Ekholm followed by a save on Arvidsson.This championship season for the Penguins lacked some of the drama from a year ago, but it was far from a slam dunk. Washington won the President’s Trophy for a second straight season and pushed Pittsburgh to seven games in the second round. Ottawa did the same thing, forcing the Penguins to double overtime to clinch the Eastern Conference title.

It is also the third championship for Crosby and a handful of teammates from the 2009 title team, surpassing the two won by the Penguins teams led by current owner Mario Lemieux in the 1990s.And it’s the second championship in 18 months for coach Mike Sullivan, who has yet to lose a playoff series since taking over after Mike Johnston was fired. Sullivan is the first American-born coach to win the Cup not once, but twice.Matt Murray became the first goalie to win not one, but two Stanley Cups as a rookie after being a late-season call up a year ago and didn’t play enough games to get that tag removed. That’s something neither Patrick Roy, Ken Dryden or Cam Ward ever managed, but the 23-year-old Murray finished this Cup Final shutting out Nashville for the final 126:52.The loss ended the upstart Predators’ deepest playoff run in the franchise’s 19-year history and one that became the talk of the town far beyond Music City, catfish and all.ADVERTISEMENT WATCH: Firefighters rescue baby seal found in parking garage 1 dead in Cavite blast, fire Crosby, Malkin and others also played in the World Cup of Hockey before the season, making this an even longer year than usual.

England vs Australia: Alex Carey bats with bandaged jaw after getting hit by Jofra Archer bouncer

first_imgAn Australian side, who are already hit by injury concerns, breathed a sigh of relief when their wicketkeeper-batsman Alex Carey survived a major injury blow during the ongoing World Cup semi-final against England at Edgbaston in Birmingham, Thursday.Carey, who has emereged as an unlikely hero for Australia time and again in this tournament, was hit on his chin by a Jofra Archer bouncer on the final delivery of the 8th over of the game. The impact of the pacer’s bouncer was so strong that Carey’s helmet came flying off.The blow left a deep cut on Carey’s chin after which he immediately signalled towards the dressing room for medical assistance.To Australia’s relief, the physio cleared Alex Carey of any serious injury as the left-handed batsman continued to bat with a bloodied bandage on his jaw.Alex Carey has had an overwhelming World Campaign thus far, with 3 half-centuries for Australia in a crucial time. Carey has accumulated 329 runs at an average of 65.8 and a strike rate of 113.44.Alex Carey injured but still Playing #ENGvAUS pic.twitter.com/giY3ojh0xgSyed Atif (@_SmokeDream_) July 11, 2019The Southpaw had batted lower the order for Australia in the first few innings, but after his brilliance with the bat, Carey was promoted to No. 5 in the ongoing match.Earlier in the day, after opting to bat against England, Australia had a horrific start as they lost their openers David Warner and Aaron Finch within the first 3 overs of the game. The five-time World Cup champions were then reeling at 14 for 3 when Peter Handscomb, too, perished in the 7th over of the game.advertisementAlex Carey then bailed Australia out of troubled waters once again by stitching a 103-run partnership with Steve Smith for the fourth wicket before falling to Adil Rashid for 46.Also Read | Rohit Sharma still ahead of David Warner in list of most runs in World Cup 2019Also Read | World Cup 2019: Virat Kohli chokes, MS Dhoni calm under pressureAlso Seelast_img read more

Rudolph says Vincent Taylor Showed ‘Madden Awareness Rating of 99’ on Lateral TD

first_imgVincent Taylor has deservedly earned a ton of praise this weekend following his multi-block performance this weekend against the Longhorns. But it was his first block, specifically, that drew rave reviews from teammates including Mason Rudolph after the game.

Watch: Oklahoma State Running back Pledge Chuba Hubbard Mid Season Highlights

first_imgVisionAs I mentioned above, Hubbard is unique in that he’s a talented track star with excellent vision and ability to make split-decisions out of the backfield. Track star Tyreek Hill was a bit raw in that it was a track star playing football, but Hubbard is a star running back and speedster who also runs track at an elite level. In the video below at the 1:14 mark, Hubbard snags a pass out of the backfield and is immediately met by a defender. However he has the wherewithal to jump cut back inside, get up field in a hurry, and slice and dice two more defenders on his way to the endzone. While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. Oklahoma State is getting the top ranked player in Canada for the 2017 recruiting cycle in running back Chuba Hubbard. Hubbard, a Bev Facey product, is a solid 6-foot-1, 200-pound speedster who chose the Cowboys over offers from Alabama, TCU, Oregon and a slew of others after being discovered first by Oklahoma State in February.Hubbard is a prospect with world class speed, who represents Canada in the 100M sprint, and will run track and play football for Oklahoma State.Unlike many track stars who play football, Hubbard has a natural vision and presence on the field. Where most track stars have a simple straight line speed with limited vision, Hubbard has a tool set of everything that made him so highly recruited. Here’s a couple of his major assets that Oklahoma State made him such a high priority:BurstThe Canadian rocket is a nickname earned, not given. Hubbard runs a reported 10.55 100M dash, and the burst that he uses helps him edge defenders to get to the outside and blow by the other team as you can see on the first play of his highlight below. The burst, especially in a running back, is something recruiters thirst for in a prospect. It’s what makes Justice Hill stand out from the pack this year despite being a true freshman. SpeedThe least surprising of traits for a sprinter, Hubbard flashes the incredible speed and makes it look effortlessly throughout a game. A lot of tailbacks don’t have the full arsenal with a burst and speed, but have the ability to make defenders miss and are good in space. Hubbard’s speed allows him to use his elusiveness in his burst to get open in space, and leave the defenders in the dust. At the :41 mark, you can see his team is backed up to the point he’s literally standing in the other team’s end zone. He takes a speed option pitch to the right side of the field, uses his stiff arm to shed one tackler, and finds open space reversing field and getting to the edge on the opposite side, eventually making a cut back up mid-field to score from 105 yards.I puked, I was dead.. But thats when the beast comes out! Me & the boys went 105 yards for the record @TheOkiePokie https://t.co/7poYrrrhJV— Chuba Hubbard (@Hubbard_RMN) September 6, 2016 With Oklahoma State set to lose a lot of experience next year in Chris Carson, Rennie Childs, and Barry J. Sanders, Hubbard will likely be set to see the field a great deal as a true freshman. It’s pretty clear to me he could see the field a great deal next season, and the qualities listed above seem to be a perfect fit for the Cowboys up-tempo offense.last_img read more

Cowboys Limping into Iowa State Game

first_imgAfter two weeks of conference play for the Cowboys, they find themselves limping into their contest this weekend against Iowa State with several key players banged up through just five games. Here’s an update, from the limited detail given out by Mike Gundy’s program, of the players and their injury status.James Washington – Wide ReceiverWashington took a big hit last weekend against Texas and according to some reports was unconscious for a brief moment. Even though the hit looked awful, Gundy surprisingly said after the game that Washington was fine and was held out by the medical staff as a precaution and that he would practice on Sunday. All signs point to his return on Saturday. “I’m pretty sure he is going to go this week,” Mason Rudolph told Scout. “I know he will be practicing this week and I think he’s progressed from Saturday.”Jordan Burton – Star LinebackerThe All-Big 12 versatile linebacker exited stage left early on Saturday and did not return with what may be considered a minor injury. Mike Gundy says he is “probable” for Saturday, and he is listed at No. 1 on OSU’s depth chart for Saturday, likely signaling his return is imminent.Jarrell Owens – Defensive EndThe starting defensive end missed Saturday’s game with an undisclosed injury. Gundy said in the postgame that he was borderline available, and it appears he will also return on Saturday after sitting out this past week against UT.Chris Carson – Running backCarson has missed several consecutive games after suffering a hand injury earlier in the season. Mike Gundy updated his status on Monday, and said he will likely return in two weeks when the Pokes travel to face the Jayhawks in Lawrence.Marcell Ateman – Wide ReceiverAteman still has not taken a snap this season after suffering a foot injury in the preseason. He’s set to be examined again this week according to a report from Scout, and the rumor is that he could return as early as the Kansas game in two weeks. If not, it seems that a redshirt, which is still available for him, could be a serious option.Jordan Brailford – Defensive EndSlated as a starter headed into the season, Brailford has not played a snap this season after suffering an apparent leg injury just before the season. His status remains questionable moving forward, and he’s already likely ruled out this weekend after not appearing on the depth chart. Whatever the injury, it seems to be something that could keep him out for the remainder of the year, with a possibility of a medical redshirt in play.
