It falls at the beginning of Lent, a six-week season of preparation for Easter. In the earliest centuries, Christians who had been stuck in persistent sin had ashes sprinkled on their bodies as a sign of repentance, even as Job repented â€œin dust and ashesâ€ (Job 42:6 ). Around the tenth century, all believers began to signify their need for repentance by having ashes placed on their foreheads in the shape of a cross. Notice that even this very sign of sinfulness hinted at the good news yet to come through its shape. Ash Wednesday is not some dour, depressing holy day because it symbolically anticipates Good Friday and Easter.I have come to greatly anticipate Ash Wednesday at Lake. It is a time in which we pause and reflect on the Lenten season. It is a time in which I, with my church family, come in deep contact with my humanness and the need I have for repentance. It sets us up for the Easter season in beautiful ways. It is truly one of my favorite evenings of the year as we together declare our need for forgiveness and a Savior.Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent, Wednesday, Feb. 13, 7:00 pm, FL 300 (Warehouse)Join the LAC family as we mark the start of the Lenten season with a time of reflection, confession and worship.

Wales-based business Cake Crew is expanding to meet growing demand for its cupcakes.The Cake Crew is increasing production capacity at its 25,000 square foot bakery in Bala after securing a £500,000 loan from Finance WalesThe business, which produces cakes for Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Aldi and The Co-op, employs 240 people in the North Wales town. It describes itself as the largest independent manufacturer of private-label cupcakes in the UK, and also produces traybakes, loaf cakes and muffins!“As a company we focus on quality and continuously improving the products we manufacture for our retail customers,” said Cake Crew managing director Simon Faithfull.“Over the last few years we’ve seen substantial growth as our products have found favour with consumers and, as a result, new retail customers have come on board.”The £500,000 loan has come from the Wales Business Fund, which is designed to support small to medium-sized firms based in Wales, and has been part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh government. “The Cake Crew are a great example of a local success story, with the business having grown significantly over the last three to four years,” said Finance Wales senior investment executive Rhodri Evans. “We are delighted to be able to support them with their continued growth.”
Plans have been in place since last year when the Premier League met with the two currently-licensed GLT companies, Hawk-eye and GoalRef, to install the system at top-flight matches. That could be as early as next season after successful tests at last December’s Club World Cup in Japan. While the Premier League is unwilling to set down an exact date for the system’s first use – a tendering process between the GLT companies is still to begin – there is a desire to have it ready by August. One of the delaying factors in introducing a new system could be over the decision of which company to employ. While both Hawk-Eye, a British-based company, and Goal-Ref were used at the Club World Cup their co-existence was in order to test each against the other. It is understood the Premier League would look to agree a deal with only one of the companies. FIFA granted licenses to both last year, which prompted the Premier League to begin talks, but it is reported up to two new companies could be given the green light by April. That could yet muddy the waters further of a Premier League decision. In Tuesday’s statement FIFA welcomed tenders from “the GLT providers currently in the licensing process” as it determines who will host the technology at the Confederations Cup and World Cup. The Premier League remains hopeful of implementing goal-line technology in time for the start of next season. FIFA’s announcement on Tuesday that it will introduce the technology for the first time at this year’s Confederations Cup will have little bearing on the Premier League’s schedule for its use in this country. “The Premier League has been a long-term advocate for goal-line technology,” a statement from the Premier League read. “We have held discussions with FIFA licensed providers with a view to introducing it as soon as is practically possible.” Press Association

Powered by Firework After Mumbai City’s win against Bangalore in the Indian Super League, Mumbai City coach Jorge Costa accused the match referee Turki Alkhudhayr of passing mean racist comments and gestures towards Mumbai City’s mid-fielder, Kevyn Serge Aboue. The match between Mumbai City and Bangalore was held on Sunday, while Mumbai City emerged victorious 3-2, the coach, Jorge had other things on his mind that was keeping him from celebrating with the team. Reportedly, during the match the Saudi Arabian referee made some racial comments that was directed towards the team’s Gabonese player Kevyn. Apart from that, the referee also belittled the player by calling him ‘Monkey’.Advertisement The racial dig did not sit well with Jorge, who immediately brought the matter up at the press-conference that was held after the match. At the press conference he spoke about the incidence and the importance of respecting players and their culture irrespective of their race and religion.Advertisement “ISL, they need foreigners. With all respect foreigners like me, like Carles (Cuadrat), like all foreign players, like all foreign coaches, they need people that (will) respect the league, the culture and they are here to work and to try that this league can everyday be better,” he said.Jorge condemned the referee’s behaviour without commenting on his capabilities as a referee. He further added that ISL should take this matter seriously, and make sure that these things never happen again.Advertisement “I am speaking about the referee, not his quality because everyone knows his quality. I am speaking about the respect he didn’t have today for my player Serge Kevyn. During the game, the referee made some gestures against Kevyn, calling him a monkey. These are certain things in which I cannot close my eyes,” Costa said.Football Sports Development Ltd (FSDL) CEO Martin Bain has taken note of the matter and has requested the All India Football Federation (AIFF) to investigate on the matter further.“ISL will ask the All India Football Federation (AIFF) to investigate the matter fully and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time, however, the Indian Super League (ISL) takes these matters seriously,”Bain said.See which footballer Brian Lara compared Virat Kohli to!2019/20 BDFA Super Division: South United FC run riot in 4-0 win against ADE FC Advertisement

Sometimes perfect scene lighting is accomplished by preventing your lights from doing their job. Step into the shadows and explore techniques for cutting light.Top image via ShutterstockRemember the two things that define cinematography — light and shadow — where you place the light and how you create the shadows, also known as contrast. — Shane Hurlbut, ASCIn literature, it can sometimes be important to read what the text is not saying, rather than what it is. This can be the same with lighting — shadows can give a scene extra depth. There are several tools you can use to help cut and stop light from reaching your subject. But first, why do you need to cut light? Why would you bring in a set of lights and then stop them doing their job? Well, take the following location for example.Image via Tresde — Architectural Visualization StudioHousehold light enters through the doorway and illuminates the room in a particular fashion. If you were to film in this location, the household lighting likely would not sufficiently and properly illuminate an actor sitting on the couch.You would need to replicate the lighting in a manner that mimics the household lighting, but also illuminates your talent. Placing a 650w Fresnel in the hallway and pointing it through the door isn’t going to have the same effect. The light would spill onto the floors and the ceiling in an unnatural fashion. To stop this from happening, the light would need to be cut/shaped through the use of flags.Contrast is one of the most important tools a cinematographer can employ. By having light spill everywhere, it will lower the contrast ratio and make the image appear flat.The EquipmentImage via B&HA flag is a flag. They come in all shapes and sizes. Some can be as small as a few feet. Some can be as large as a vehicle. A flag will, however, inherit a different name depending on what it is being used for.Topper: This a flag that is used to stop (or more appropriately, cut) the top of a light. You will find that toppers are primarily used to stop light spilling onto the ceiling and sometimes onto the background. You might have a 2K sweeping down onto your subject, but to keep the focus on your actor, your background needs to be darkened. Using a topper would isolate that light spill from the background. It’s also helpful to remove excess background light in which the boom operator is casting a shadow.Bottomer: This is a flag positioned to cut the bottom of a light in order to stop the light spilling onto the floor.Sider: A sider, as you might have guessed, is a flag positioned to cut the light from entering the side of a composition.Image via Lights Film SchoolOf course, these will be used in combination with each other. It’s common to see a behind-the-scenes photograph of a set clustered with flags. As a side note, a flag which has been specifically set up to stop lens flare is called a lenser.You might ask, what about barn doors — do they not direct and cut light? It’s an excellent point. However, because barn doors are close to the light source, they create a very soft cut; you wouldn’t be able to have a razor sharp cut in the light by just using barn doors. They are, though, perfect for when you need to feather the light across a subject and control the direction of a beam. (They also provide an extra security measure with protecting the lens if the light were to fall.)There is also a courtesy flag. This is a flag that has been specifically set up to remove the light glare from a crew member on set.Flags can come in all shapes and sizes with a variety of different names.You can acquire flags, fingers, dots, etc. Within different regions, there may be different names for the equipment. For example, a finger, which is a linear piece of fabric rather than rectangular, can also be called a blade or a cutter.Image via B&HYou can also cut light with the use of breakup patterns — the cucoloris and branchaloris. I know they sound like dinosaurs, but I’m sure you know the cucoloris by its more common name: a cookie. This tool simply cuts the light into a pattern formed by the design of the cookie. It will help create contrast within the light falloff, and also stop the light from looking like an artificial source. Here’s a cucoloris being used on the set of National Treasure.Image via DisneyBelow is the shot within the film.Image via DisneyCould you imagine the same shot without the actors being painted by shadows? It wouldn’t look natural; it would look artificial. You will find that the illusion of a breakup pattern will fall apart if you start to move the cookie. If you do want a moving breakup pattern, such as a tree branch, then you need a branchaloris, which is nothing more than a leafy branch placed in front of your light source. It can be manmade or a real branch taken (with permission) from a tree outside.Image: Setting up a branchaloris via Stephen David SmithAs long as it results in the light breaking up to form the shadow of foliage, you’ve succeeded in using a branchaloris. In the National Treasure example, the shadow cut is quite feathered. If you would prefer your pattern to be very distinct and sharp, move your cookie closer to the subject.Tips For Using FlagsWhen cutting light, you will get a cleaner shadow if your light source is hard rather than soft.Light from a Fresnel lamp will be easier to shape than light from a 1×1 LED panel.Try to align the flag with the center of the light fixture rather than the edge.For a sharper cut, move the flag farther away from the light source. For a graduated cut, move the flag closer to the light.The video below shows great use of flags in action. Be warned — although the video gives solid information, it does look like someone has accidentally applied a Warp Stabilizer to the timeline and not an individual shot!Got any additional tips for working with flags?

The Odisha government’s decision to cancel the annual students’ union elections in the current year in colleges and universities has evoked a mixed response across the State.Several student organisations staged protests on Friday after the Higher Education Department issued a notification on Thursday. While ABVP has opposed the decision, NSUI, AISF and SFI termed the decision undemocratic. The decision has been welcomed by many students and the students’ wing of the BJD, saying that it will prevent law and order situation and violence during the elections.
