Most daytime temperatures will remain at or below 90 degrees but nighttime low temperatures will be much above average due to more clouds and humidity during June. Expect lots of lows in the 60s and even some 70s in June.Even though there are pockets of dry areas, expect a wetter month of June. There are some scattered rain chances early and again the middle of the week but it will be scattered. Rain chances appear to increase into the week of June 14-21 with locally heavy rain possible.See the latest week 2 outlook from NOAA at:http://www.cpc.noaa.gov/products/predictions/814day/814prcp.new.gifhttp://www.cpc.noaa.gov/products/predictions/814day/814temp.new.gifThe 16-day rainfall outlook on NOAA/NWS/Ohio River Forecast Center:http://www.erh.noaa.gov/ohrfc/HAS/images/NAEFS16day.pdfNormal rainfall is close to an inch per week.The latest water resources outlook from the Ohio River Forecast Center can be found at:http://www.erh.noaa.gov/ohrfc/WRO.shtmlLooking ahead into July, temperatures still look normal or slightly above normal with rainfall possibly drying out.last_img read more

How to Zoom in Premiere Pro for Simple Transitions

No Comments

first_imgUsing zoom makes static subjects come to life, and helps smooth transitions. Throw a little “Ken Burns” flavor into your video with the help of the zoom.The zoom effect could be argued as one of the most used effects within Premiere. I’m constantly using the zoom to either crop into a clip, or to add a little motion to an otherwise stationary clip. Today, we are going to do a little guided tour around creating the zoom effect in Premiere, and then I’ll show you how to incorporate that zoom into a transition. Let’s get started!Step 1: Add Your Clip to the TimelineTo create a zoom effect in Premiere Pro, we’ll be using keyframes for the zoom and position parameters.First, let’s start by adding our image or footage to the Premiere Pro timeline.Step 2: Adding Keyframes to Scale and PositionNext, with the clip selected, we’ll navigate to the very FIRST frame of the clip. This will be where our FIRST keyframe is placed. In our effects controls window, click the stopwatch icon next to the SCALE and POSITION parameters. You just added your first keyframe for the scale and position of the clip.Step 3: Creating & Polishing the ZoomAfter you click and enable the stopwatch for a parameter, Premiere will automatically add keyframes when a parameter is adjusted. So, all we have to do now is navigate to the LAST frame of the clip and adjust our scale and position parameters.As soon as you adjust the parameter, a new keyframe is automatically added at the current time. Make sure that you create the position to where you want the final shot to be, as Premiere will automatically interpret the motion into a zoom between the two keyframes.I usually scale up just a little bit and adjust my position to zoom into the main subject of the image.If you want to smooth out the ending of the zoom, you can always add the Ease in or Ease Out tool to give the ending of the clip a little bit more slide.To do this, right click the end keyframe and select either Ease in or Ease Out, depending on if you are going in or out of a clip.Step 4: Saving the Zoom as a PresetFor bonus points, you can save this zoom effect as a preset to use quickly later on any other clip.In the “Effect Controls” window, with “Motion” selected, click on the panel menu at the top right. Click “Save Preset.” Make sure that you choose “Scale” as the type of preset. This will rove the animation for the entire duration of the clip. Name the preset something relative, like “Ken Burns effect” or “scale up 100-120%.Click the panel menu in your “Effect Controls” window, click “Save Preset” and then name your preset.Now, whenever you need to throw the zoom effect onto a clip in a hurry again, just look in your presets folder in your effects window.Keep in mind, you can also reverse the effect we just did, and have the image zoom out. This is good for revealing certain things in the image over time. You can also add keyframes for other things to make it more interesting, such as rotation. In Premiere Pro, like most video editing applications, you can even get really creative and add keyframes to things like color effects, blurs, etc.The Zoom TransitionOne really popular use of the zoom within Premiere is creating a transition between two clips by utilizing the zoom tool. It’s used all over vlogs and social media as a way to show off your latest vacation footage. Creative Ryan has a really simple tutorial on this subject that we are going to use as our example.All you have to do is take the two clips that you want to transition between, and add the Transform effect to both of them. On the first clip, set a key frame at both the end of the clip, and about three or four frames before the ending. On the very end keyframe, scale up your Transform effect, and increase the shutter angle to 360. Make sure to also unclick “Use Composition’s Shutter Angle,” which will add the motion blur that you are looking for in this type of transition.To match the first clip’s zoom, do the same thing to the second clip, but in reverse. Add the zoom to the beginning of the clip, and have it return to normal settings after a few keyframes. Bam! You’ve got yourself a neat little zoom transition to use on your next killer vacation video.Want more tips on using Premiere Pro?

25 days ago​Proposed Liverpool kit deal with Nike worth less than current sponsors New Balance

first_img​Proposed Liverpool kit deal with Nike worth less than current sponsors New Balanceby Ian Ferris25 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool’s proposed new kit deal with US sportswear giant Nike is only worth a guaranteed UK£30 million (US$37 million) per year, according to High Court papers seen by the Times, reports, www.sportspromedia.com/.The figure is in stark contrast to the previously reported UK£70 million (US$86 million) per year figure for the Nike deal. Instead, this reported base figure is less than Liverpool’s existing UK£45 million (US$55 million) annual deal with New Balance, which is taking the club to court claiming a contract clause means it can match Nike’s terms.It is also less than the minimum UK£50 million (US$61 million) per year deals Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have with Nike, as well as the UK£71 million per year agreement the brand struck with French champions PSG in June.However, Liverpool apparently believe Nike can deliver far greater total revenue for the club than has been generated by their deal with New Balance. This is reflected by a commitment from Nike in the proposed deal to pay the club a 20 per cent royalty on net sales of Liverpool products. It would also promote the club through other influential athletes, such as Serena Williams and LeBron James, and popular musicians associated with the company, including rapper Drake.In addition, the report says Nike will distribute a new kit through ‘6,000 global doors’, compared to New Balance’s 3,000.In response, New Balance believes it can meet demand for Liverpool kit, having delivered tow of the biggest selling home kits for fans. A three-day trial to settle the legal dispute has been listed from 18th October. TagsPremiership NewsAbout the authorIan FerrisShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Zillow OneThird of Homebuyers Lack Basic Mortgage Knowledge

No Comments

first_img With mortgage rates low and affordability relatively high, the housing market is seeing buyers return in force–unfortunately, many of those would-be owners are woefully unprepared and misinformed when it comes to taking out a mortgage, “”Zillow””:http://www.zillow.com/ discovered in a recently released survey.[IMAGE]According to Zillow, homebuyers participating in its Mortgage Marketplace Survey answered basic questions on mortgage information incorrectly nearly one-third (32.5 percent) of the time.For example, 34 percent of first-time homebuyers are not aware that they might be able to get a home loan with a down payment of less than 5 percent. According to Zillow, the number of lenders on the company’s Mortgage Marketplace that quote loan requests with a down payment between 3.5 and 5 percent has risen by 570 percent over the past two years.In addition, homebuyers seem not to understand how to secure the best possible interest rate and loan terms. Twenty-six percent of homebuyer respondents believe–incorrectly–they are obligated to close their loan with the lender the pre-approved them. Separately, 24 percent believe the best interest rates and fees can always be found through the bank with which they currently do business.””All too often buyers focus on renegotiating a lower home price and ignore the importance of finding the right loan. If a home buyer can lower their interest rate by even half a percentage point, they can not only increase their purchasing power, but save thousands of dollars over the life of the loan,”” said Erin Lantz, director of mortgages for Zillow.Prospective buyers aren’t the only group who demonstrated a lack of basic mortgage knowledge.According to Zillow, an estimated 14 million homeowners (about one in five) said they did not believe underwater borrowers could refinance. (According to the “”latest data””:https://themreport.com/articles/mortgage-rates-continue-to-attract-harp-activity-in-february-2013-05-07 from the Federal Housing Finance Administration, nearly 2.4 million underwater borrowers had refinanced through the Home Affordable Refinance Program as of the end of February 2013.)Separately, 47 percent of current homeowners incorrectly believe they must wait at least one year between refinancing.In an effort to educate potential and current homeowners, Zillow is offering an online “”Mortgage IQ Quiz””:http://www.zillow.com/mortgage-rates/quiz/ that contains detailed information on common mortgage misperceptions. in Data, Origination Zillow: One-Third of Homebuyers Lack Basic Mortgage Knowledge May 8, 2013 443 Views center_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Customer Satisfaction Demand HARP Investors Lenders & Servicers Purchase Loans Refinance Service Providers Zillow 2013-05-08 Tory Barringer Sharelast_img read more

Nevada officials reach out to Dbacks on potential

first_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke He currently leads all corners in yards allowed with 641.Peterson is also tied for second in penalties given up(his eight equals Cedric Griffin and is one behind BrandonBrowner); hardly DROTY material. Top Stories D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Patrick Peterson has made a name for himself as a puntreturner, as he’s taken four kicks back for touchdowns injust 11 games as a pro.However, he was drafted fifth overall because ofhis cover skills, and the fact that he has yet to reallyshow them can be a little concerning.According to ProFootballFocus.com, Peterson had arough day in Sunday’s win against the Rams, allowing sixreceptions for 74 yards. Apparently he never came close tobreaking up a pass, and has been picked on all season. Comments   Share   Indeed, Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt hasbeen trumping Peterson as the league’s best defensiverookie, and for the season Peterson has picked off apair of passes while racking up 47 tackles and eightpasses defensed. Peterson has certainly been thrown to the wolves, so tospeak, often times being asked to cover the opponent’sbest receiver. The former LSU star clearly struggled earlyon against the likes of Carolina’s Steve Smith and NewYork’s Hakeem Nicks, but seemed to be finding his footing.Has he slipped and regressed?Hard to say, and as long as he keeps scoring touchdownsfew will complain. Unless, of course, he keeps allowingthem, too.last_img read more
