Fired-up Ravens beat Steelers 26-6 without Rice

first_imgBaltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith (89) gets a hand on, but does not catch, a pass as Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen (28) defends during the first half of an NFL football game Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014, in Baltimore. (AP Photo/Nick Wass)BALTIMORE (AP) – A short and tumultuous work week for the Baltimore Ravens ended with a surprisingly lopsided victory.Playing three days after running back Ray Rice was released, the Ravens got a pair of touchdown passes from Joe Flacco and rolled past the rival Pittsburgh Steelers 26-6 on Thursday night.Rice was reaching the end of a two-game suspension for domestic violence when a video of him striking his then-fiancee surfaced Monday. By the end of the day, the three-time Pro Bowler had been cut by Baltimore and suspended indefinitely by the NFL.The media immediately descended upon the team’s training complex, and the line of questioning had little to do with this heated AFC North rivalry.The Ravens (1-1) shrugged off the distraction to bounce back from a season-opening loss at home to division rival Cincinnati.Bernard Pierce took over for Rice to gain 96 yards on 22 carries as part of a ground game that finished with 157 yards. Flacco went 21 for 29 for 166 yards and two TD throws to tight end Owen Daniels, and Justin Tucker kicked four field goals.Pittsburgh (1-1) managed only two field goals and committed three turnovers – one that halted its opening drive, another that set up a fourth-quarter field goal by Tucker, and an interception by Ben Roethlisberger with 1:51 remaining.It was only the second time in the last 11 regular-season meetings between the teams that the outcome was decided by more than three points.Roethlisberger completed 22 of 37 passes for 217 yards. It was the first time since Nov. 26, 2006, that Baltimore held Pittsburgh without a touchdown.After Tucker kicked a 23-yard field goal for a 20-6 lead, Steelers tight end Heath Miller fumbled on a hit by rookie C.J. Mosley, who took the loose ball to the Pittsburgh 20.That led to a 22-yarder by Tucker with 11:14 left.Although the Rice video and the reaction was the talk of Baltimore for much of the week, a few fans showed their loyalty to the banished running back by wearing his No. 27 jersey.But the crowd of 71,181 was quick to turn its attention to on-field action at the opening kickoff.Aided by a roughing the passer call against Courtney Upshaw on the third play of the game, Pittsburgh held the ball for more than eight minutes before Justin Brown fumbled and Baltimore recovered at its own 15.The Ravens then moved 85 yards in 12 plays with the help of two Pittsburgh penalties, the last a 23-yard pass interference call against Cortez Allen that set up a 2-yard touchdown pass from Flacco to Daniels.Pierce and Justin Forsett combined for 32 yards on Baltimore’s next series, which ended in a field goal for a 10-0 lead.Pittsburgh finally broke through with 2:50 left in the half, getting a field goal to cap an 11-play, 73-yard drive.It was 10-6 before Flacco connected with Daniels on a 1-yard touchdown pass to cap an 80-yard drive highlighted by Flacco’s 24-yard completion to tight end Dennis Pitta.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more

ARM Chips Are Heading To Servers — But Intel Is Already There, Waiting

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Tags:#ARM#Intel#microserver#servers brian proffitt ARM systems-on-chips are breaking out of their beachhead in mobile and heading to server platforms, which will introduce more low-power processors into data center configurations. But Intel may have a surprise or two for its rival chip architecture.That’s because a lot of the planned milestones for ARM-based processors we’re expecting in 2014 are already in Intel’s rear-view mirror. In December 2012, for instance, Intel released its own 64-bit system-on-a-chip (SoC) for servers, the Intel Atom S1200 (codenamed Centerton). The Centerton’s power levels have been measured as low as 6W.And that’s just a start. Intel has already announced plans to introduce a second generation of Atom SoCs for microserver in the second half of 2013 – way ahead of any other 64-bit SoC based on ARM architecture from Applied Micro and AMD.The new Intel Atom SoC, codenamed Avoton, will be based on 22-nm manufacturing technology and new Silvermont micro-architecture, which are expected to make it competitive against current and future SoCs based on ARM. Applied Micro’s X-Gene SoC will be based on 40-nm technology, which in general offer less performance, higher power consumption, or both.But Wait, There’s MoreARM-based SoCs have other hurdles in front of them. For years, enterprise customers have coded their applications to run on Intel-based architectures. The introduction of ARM-based micro-servers will afford those customers a lot more options — but they’ll have to weigh those options against the costs of hardware replacement and software migration to a whole new architecture.In a way, ARM’s software compatibility problem is a lot like the situation faced by early-to-market hybrids in the automobile market. Sure, the early Toyota Prius and Honda Insight models saved their owners money on gas. Initially, though, those cumulative savings still didn’t justify the higher cost of the hybrid engine system.That’s changing now for hybrids as gas prices rise and hybrid technology gets cheaper. But that early dilemma is very similar to what new ARM chips will face: a market dominated by a single architecture and some very real overhead costs for customers who chose to migrate their software to the upstart technology.Only when the savings from using ARM exceed those software porting costs will ARM SoCs will become more attractive to enterprise customers. And you can bet Intel has set its sights on staying ahead of that intersection in order to maintain its leadership position in the server market.Image courtesy of Intelcenter_img How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… Related Posts last_img read more

Sundance 2019: Tips for Shooting Verité Documentary Footage

first_imgCinematographer Matt Porwoll shares some insight about shooting classic verité on the modern documentary “Tigerland” at Sundance 2019.I’m a huge fan of documentaries. In particular, I enjoy and identify with the sub-docu genre of classic cinema verité style.Tigerland premiered at Sundance 2019, and it is one of those unique and powerful documentary features that employs the classic rules of cinema verité with the modern styling of mainstream documentaries.From the official Sundance bio:50 years ago, a young forest officer in India rallied the world to save tigers from extinction. Today, the creed is carried on in Far East Russia by the guardians of the last Siberian tigers, who risk everything to save the species.We sat down with director of photography Matt Porwoll (who has shot other notable documentaries like Cartel Land, The Trade, and At the Fork) to talk about the challenges of shooting across continents, recording wildlife, and capturing verité footage in the modern age.PremiumBeat: Tell us about Tigerland.Matt Porwoll: Tigerland is a film that looks at the preservation of the tiger and all it’s surrounded by. It’s also about the mythos of the tiger and the human admiration and fear of the tiger — and, how that has influenced the lifespan of the tiger over the last 100 years and a push for preservation now.When we set out to make the film, the biggest thing Ross Kauffman, the director, wanted was a film that showed the respect of the tiger, rather than just the negative aspects of poaching or loss of habitat. Rather, the goal was to make a film that celebrates tigers while also showing the decline in numbers and the work that needs to be done.We tried to bring in a lot of verité elements. Both Ross and I are traditionally verité filmmakers, but we knew there would be some other elements in there as well with archival and animation. It was a new film in a way, but quite an experience and challenge in itself.PB: What was it like jumping into this project with a verité mindset?MP: As all verité films go, you never really know what you’re going to get until it starts to happen. We’re following a story that is active and present. So, when we were going into Russia with Pavel, who works with World Wildlife Federation, we didn’t quite know what to expect. We knew we had a fascinating character. We didn’t quite know what was going to unfold, and as you hope with verité films, […] the second you get on the ground, things start to develop and you just want to jump in and follow it.PB: What camera or cameras did you use on Tigerland?MP: The choosing of the cameras, especially as well as the lenses, came down to what Ross and I were comfortable with and what we had used in our verité films in the past. We also knew we were going to be in a lot of difficult environments to shoot in. We were in Russia in February, so we had temperatures as low as -25 degrees. Then we jumped to India a month later where it was over 110 degrees. So, it was quite a spread on what we were going to put all this equipment through.In my experience with cameras in the past, I knew that the C300 Mark II was going to be able to hold up to that.PB: And what lenses did you use with the C300 Mark II?MP: For lenses, there’s always this compromise of how much gear should we bring to get as cinematic look as possible, while also needing to be fast and nimble and all that. So what we ended up settling on to give this film a look was shooting on the Canon CN-E Compact zooms 15.5-47mm and the 30-105mm T2.8. That’s because those lenses gave us the full coverage that we needed for shooting verité but are also incredibly sharp with very good contrast and color rendition. We wanted to try and convey that feeling of being in Russia in the winter with the starkness and cold.We also took a set of vintage Canon K35s which were fantastic and very different from the compact zooms. They’re milky and smooth in the highlights, lower in contrast, and flair like crazy in a beautiful way to give the film an atmospheric element because the environment of the tigers is a character itself.In India we kept the same setup. But, because India is so warm and so rich, we tried to shoot as much as we could in all setups — verité or otherwise — with the K35s. Thankfully most of the shoots in India were constrained, in a lodge or in the back of a jeep, so we had an easier time shooting in primes. When we needed to shoot more coverage with the zooms we added a Tiffen 1/4 Black Pro Mist on the front of it to help soften it to match easier with the K35s.In India when we had three days in a tiger preserve, we had a Canon 50-1000mm, which was perfect for capturing the tigers and wildlife in the park.PB: Do you have any advice for aspiring verité documentarians?MP: There are two sides of verité shooting. The first side is just allowing yourself to be as open and present as possible. Especially nowadays, it’s very easy to let the equipment and the technical side of things bog us down with lugging around the right camera, bringing the full lens package, and doing that kind of stuff. If you’re not present in the moment, then all that technology just bogs you down because that’s where your mind is focused.The key to good verité filmmaking is letting your gear work for you and spending time with your characters. Letting yourself experience the moment through your own eyes, but also being aware of how your characters are experiencing it as well.The other side is just the more time you can spend in the field with your characters, the better your verité is going to be. You’ll be able to really put yourself in their shoes as much as possible.It’s just something that takes a lot of time to learn to move with people and be unobtrusive in the moment, which all comes from learning how to listen and observe without letting the filmmaking side of it get in the way.I think the only way to do it is to go do it. Get out and practice. Even without a camera, practice watching people. See how they move, how they speak. When they make decisions to pause, or interrupt a lot, or be a listener and speak only at the end. All these are signifiers to give you an entry point to the filmmaking side. When do I move? When do I zoom? Where are the edit points?All of those things — just learning to observe and take notes will make you a better verité filmmaker.For more information on Matt Porwoll you can check out his personal website.All images via Tigerland.Looking for more filmmaking interviews and insights?
