first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest On Sept. 19, rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus 2 (RHD2) was detected in a domestic rabbit in Medina County. This is the first confirmed case of RHD2 in the United States. It’s important to remember RHD2 does not pose a threat to humans or other animals, but is highly fatal in rabbits.The rabbits at this location were housed in horse stalls and ran free in those stalls. They have been on site for several years and there has been no movement of rabbits on or off the premises recently. The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) will work with state and federal partners to conduct surveillance of wild rabbits near the location.RHD is a viral disease that causes sudden death in rabbits. It can be spread through contact with infected rabbits, as well as by materials having contact with infected animals. Again, this disease does not affect people or other animals. There are two main types of RHD — RHD1 and RHD2. This is the first detection of RHD2 in the United States. Currently there are no vaccines for use in the U.S. so the best way to protect rabbits is by enhanced biosecurity practices.The time from infection to first signs of RHD2 disease may be up to nine days. Affected rabbits may develop a fever and die within 12 to 36 hours. Infected rabbits may appear dull and be reluctant to eat; have congested membranes around the eyes; show nervous signs, incoordination or excitement; and paddling. Breathing may be difficult and a blood-stained, frothy nasal discharge may be seen at death. Rabbits shed RHD2 in the urine or feces for as long as four weeks after infection. RHD virus can be spread on contaminated food, bedding, fur and water. Transmission of the RHD virus over short distances can occur by the contaminated clothing of people, biting insects, birds, rodents, wild animals, fur or vehicles.Although RHD2 does not pose a threat to humans, other animals or the food supply, it must be reported to state or federal authorities immediately upon diagnosis or suspicion of the disease. If you suspect cases of the disease, have questions or need more information, please contact ODA Division of Animal Health at (614) 728-6220.last_img read more

first_imgLearn how to duplicate yourself with this easy cloning effect. You’ll be beside yourself with joy!Top image: Jesse Eisenberg in The DoubleCreating a cloning effect is surprisingly easy. In a nutshell: you can create a cloning effect by overlaying two videos, as long as the backgrounds stay the exact same. A simple mask tool or cropping effect will do the trick.For example if we composited the images below:We could end up with a pretty convincing cloning effect that uses only a single mask.Creating a Cloning Effect in After EffectsCreated by Film RiotThis video tutorial from Film Riot shows how easy it is to create a cloning effect using After Effects. The tutorial is fairly straightforward — just mask out the areas around your cloned subject. It should be noted: if you want to create a cloning effect where the subject passes in front of another clone, you will need to do some potentially time-consuming rotoscoping.Creating a Cloning Effect in FCPXCreated by fordeetvCloning in FCPX is very similar to cloning in any other video editing application. All you need to do is simply layer both of your clone layers on top of each other and crop out the unnecessary parts of the video frame.You don’t need After Effects or FCPX to create a cloning effect. This technique will work in virtually any video editing application… just look for the pen tool or crop effect.Four Things to Consider When Trying to Clone YourselfWhen you get down to it there isn’t a lot that goes into creating a quick cloning effect, but there are a few things you might want to consider.1. Color Correction/White BalanceWhen working with cloned videos, you need to make sure your video camera is set to a custom white balance. If the video is set to auto-white balance, you might run into issues where the color of your videos don’t match. If you encounter this problem in post, you can usually fix it by using an automatic color correction tool like the Fast Color Corrector in Premiere Pro.2. ExposureIn line with white balance, you need to make sure that the exposure between your two video clips is consistent. The only way to guarantee that the exposure is 100% similar is to throw your camera into manual. If you don’t set a unified exposure, you might run into some issues where your video has a harsh seam. In the example above, you can see how unbalanced exposures can lead to an unconvincing cloning effect.3. Overlapping ActionIt’s super easy to create a cloning effect if one of your subjects is on the left and one is on the right. But if your subjects actually crossover or interact with each other, you’ll run into some very tedious and cumbersome issues. If your subjects end up overlapping, you’ll either need to rotoscope one out (which can take a lot of time) or rethink the way you are shooting your clone video. If your video requires overlapping action, you’ll probably want to shoot on a green screen instead.4. Lock Down Your TripodEven the slightest movements in your tripod will completely make this effect fall apart. When working on a cloning effect, lock down your tripod and keep an eye on any crew members getting near the camera. It’s usually best to work a little faster than normal, just to ensure that none of your environment accidentally changes on the shoot.5. PlaybackIf your clones have a conversation with each other, then you’ll need to record and playback your footage while on set. I recommend using a small handheld camera that can record quick audio. This will prevent you from having to dump your A-camera footage to an external playback system between shots. Simply record a shot with two cameras and playback so your actor can see when they’re doing the second take. You may need to work on the timing a little in order to get it right.Have you ever recorded a cloning effect? Share how you did it in the comments below.last_img read more

first_img Email But in many ways, in the best ways, creativity can and does help artists push through the hard times to find a better version of themselves. Isbell, who admitted to getting sober because of his wife, fellow songwriter Amanda Shires, used creativity as not only therapy, but a tool for forging new connections.”I wrote my way through it. I think part of the process for me of sobering up,” said Isbell, “was using my work to connect with the world that I had always felt so isolated from. And I think probably my survival instinct kicked in and said, ‘Well, what you do is you use these songs to connect with people in a way that you’ve not connected with them before.’ And after that, I sort of felt like I belonged in the world.”If you or someone you know is also dealing with any of these challenges, it is important to know that you are not alone and there are resources where you can seek help, including the services of MusiCares. MuisiCares’ Nationwide Support Groups Offer Refuge For MusiciansRead more Julien Baker, Jason Isbell & More Talk Sobriety julien-baker-sobriety-you-can%E2%80%99t-hide-behind-substances-all-time Facebook Twitter NETWORK ERRORCannot Contact ServerRELOAD YOUR SCREEN OR TRY SELECTING A DIFFERENT VIDEO Jun 20, 2016 – 4:09 am Isbell and Lauderdale Talk Songwriting For musicians of all genres, ages and backgrounds, leading a substance-free life can be a tall order. Here’s how a few well-known artists tackle the challengeNate HertweckGRAMMYs Jan 16, 2019 – 6:09 pm For anyone who has ever struggled with substance abuse, or simply opts to lead a substance-free life, sobriety is not always easy. For musicians, the risks and challenges can be even more daunting with the constant temptations of life on the road, and staying creative while fighting addiction can be a double whammy.Fortunately, the narrative of overcoming addiction continues to blossom, as more and more musicians and music professionals are sharing their stories, providing inspiration, perspective and awareness. Most recently, a mix of nine artists from various corners of the music world, including Julien Baker, Jason Isbell, Soko, Ben Harper, Steven Tyler, Phish singer Trey Anastasio, and more, gave GQ candid insight on how musicians can thrive creatively without using.Take indie-pop super-talent Julien Baker, who keys into the difficulty of pulling away from drugs and alcohol. Opening up about her path to a healthy, creative life provides a window in the terror recovery can include.”The other fear is that when substances aren’t there and I’m alone, I’m going to have confront something even scarier, which is myself and my own consciousness,” said Baker. “Now I have to sit there and be with myself, and that is most terrifying of all. However, as hard as it is, it’s an extremely necessary skill—the ability to be alone and to confront yourself. You can’t hide behind substances all the time. But yeah, it’s scary.”But pushing through the fear can also be rewarding. French singer/songwriter Soko described how her life opened up once she overcame the monster in her life, and inter-connected her physical health was with her ambition.”It was very easy for me to stop,” said Soko. “On top of being addicted to alcohol, I was also bulimic. I stopped food addiction and alcohol all at once—vegan, gluten-free, no processed food, no sugar, no alcohol, no caffeine, overnight. Just by being like: “I’m done. I’m ambitious, and I have things to do. And I want my life to have meaning.”The GQ roundtable also poses the question of what advice has been the most helpful along the way. Harper’s answer taps into a critical pitfall common among creatives, who, as they become more successful, can run the risk of being surrounded by people who won’t always tell them the hard truth. “Don’t try to tell yourself a story that only you would believe,” he says.
