Black Hawk Adventures - A family of travelers: Life's always an Adventure - 1 views

  •  


    After 14 years, four children, 55 countries, and 250 000 km, this Argentinean couple had a dream of travelling around the world by car and still on the road fulfilling their dream.

    In 1999, Herman Zapp and his wife Candelaria climbed into their car and drove out of Argentina with only $4 000 in hand.  Using their 1928 Graham Paige they went to Alaska as both wanted to go, so that's what they did.  "I saw the car two months before we left and fell in love with it so I brought it," Herman said in Cape Town, where they now live. They arrived in South Africa last year.

    In the same year Herman, an electrician, and Candelaria, a secretary, sold their house, packed what they could into the car and left. "Everyone thought we were crazy," Herman said. "But, really, who is crazy - the one who goes for the dream or the one who doesn't?"

    Even that they are doing what they wanted at first the couple has some fears.  "That first day was the hardest," said Herman. But the pair was determined. "If you let your fear take hold, your life will pass you by," he explained.

    The couple, Herman Zapp and Candelaria was married for 20 years. "We think we will be around forever but it's important to rethink life," said Herman. "My mother died when she was only 46, the only legacy I have taken from her is to 'do it now'."

    They survive mainly on the kindness of others, having been taken in by more than 2 500 households all around the world. "You have to give a chance to people to show how good they can be."

    They have three children, three boys and a girl and every child were born in different countries. Herman said being on the road was the best education they could get.

    "School is important, but it's not the most intelligent person who survives, it is the person who learns how to adapt

Why it is More Fun to Shoot Video than Taking Still Pictures - Black Hawk News - Advent... - 1 views

  •  
    It is nice to take pictures but there are moments that pictures cannot tell but videos can. Videos can make someone feel like they were there also. While photograph can last forever, you can go back to those moments watching and re-watching those precious moments. "While pictures can be flat, video brings life to your experiences," says Laurel House, who videoblogs about travel, fitness, and more at QuickieChick

    "With video, you can share your adventures - and relive them again when you come home," he added.

    You do not need fancy equipments to capture the moments on video, you phone will do or there are quality and affordable camcorders available in the market. And worried about video editing, you do not have to do it or there is Windows Live Movie Maker that is so much easy to learn. Therefore there are no excuses!

    Now let us learn how to get you going. Video recoding isn't really hard; here are the ways to do so. Get personal. Try adding narrations, wouldn't it be boring if your video is a bunch of sequence photos like. Plus, the people who are going to watch your videos will get as much excitement as you were during your travel. They will understand what the shots are and what the experience meant to you. And remember to sound natural, scripted is boring! If you want to be in the video, do not appear stiff and cold, be natural, act natural. Smile and laugh but never fake it!

    Entertain and tell a story, who would want to watch a video that has no sequence and with a singles shot. Capture every detail and reactions of the people so that when you go back you will feel the same happiness. I did not say join a competition for your video but it could have at least a beginning, middle, and end.

    Keep your videos short, because no matter how interesting your video looks like audience will become antsy just stay snappy and stick to a single subject.

    Focus on moments and experiences that are actually fun and fun to watch, skip the non sense,

Black Hawk Adventures: Scientist Arrested for Selling Research Data to China - Liveleak... - 0 views

  •  
    A former nanotechnology scientist of Sandia National Laboratories pleaded not guilty to federal charges of selling intellectual property and research to institutes in China.

    Jianyu Huang was arraigned last week on 1 count of false statements and 5 counts of federal program fraud as he was accused of sharing information from his post in the Sandia lab's Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies since 2009. However, the charge was only for theft of federal property and was not for stolen classified information.

    He reportedly sold research on nanotech that belongs to the US to government-run Chinese schools like Harbin Institute of Technology and Peking University, claiming them as his own.

    The indictment accuses Huang of selling USD 25,000 worth of "materials, equipment, time and work product of the company staff along with intangible property" between 2009 and 2012, on 5 different instances.
