As the Star Wars storyline continues to expand, filmmakers and VFX artists can expect new visual effects in each film. However, from a Motion Graphics perspective, the opening titles from the trailers always deserve attention. Here’s how you can create your own Star Wars-inspired opening title. What to Take Away From This After Effects TutorialEven though the Star Wars Title is simple, there are subtle details that make the animation great. We will look into creating the exact positioning and rotation of the Star Wars title. Finally, we will also recreate the design of the layout from font to final placement.What You Will Learn:Creating text as outlines.How to rotate letters independently in 3D space.Animating titles in groups.Using keyframes to keep animation simple.Enjoy the tutorial, and may the force be with you! Follow along with a free After Effects project file, which you can download by clicking the button below.DOWNLOAD NOW!Keep It SimpleAs visually arresting as Star Wars usually is (with its space fights, light saber duels, CGI characters, etc.), the opening title is completely simple. There are no flashy effects, crazy spins, particles, or any other type of compositing other than a static starry background. Even with this simplicity, these titles still excite viewers. Which is exactly what a title should do.<img src="http://c69.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2069/IMG4785.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8232"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

10 Missing Ingredients That Make for an Ineffective Leader

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://c68.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2068/IMG798.jpg" alt="first_img" />The competencies and character traits that make one an effective leader are too many and too varied to compile on a single list. While there are as many ways to be an ineffective leader, this list of ten missing ingredients is a good start to what matters and why.No Vision: A leader is responsible for the future. Creating that future requires a vision, as you cannot hit a target you cannot see. As a leader, you need to see the future, the obstacles, and what needs to change to make your vision a reality. You are responsible for change, and if what you were doing now would bring your vision to life, you’d already have achieved it. Without a vision, you cannot provide it to the rest of your team. When you “drift,” the company drifts.No Drive: A leader wants. They are driven to achieve, to produce results. The vision and the drive provides power to the leader’s initiatives and the people in their charge. It infuses the organization with the will to take action and drives them. If you aren’t driven (as if by some invisible force), your people won’t be either. If you aren’t pushing forward, they won’t push forward with you. You are responsible for the motivation.No Standards: The leader sets the standards. They decide what is good, and true, and beautiful. They also establish what is non-negotiable. The obvious non-negotiables are values, like integrity, which seem obvious but still need defending. Other non-negotiables aren’t as obvious but are just as necessary and equally deserving of a strong defense. What people do with their time, how they prioritize their initiatives and projects, and how certain things get done need to be aligned with the vision. Low standards—or worse, no standards—are how the vision is lost.No Caring: The best leaders care. They care about their company, but they also care about the people in their charge. They expect both to grow while in their charge. The best leader you have ever had saw something inside you that you didn’t see in yourself. She helped you see what was invisible to you, and she pushed and prodded you to become something more than you were. To bring your vision to life, you need to lead your people in growth. Their capacity is the capacity of your organization. Without care, you will not unleash the creative power of your people, and your vision will be lost.No Accountability: As a leader, you cannot bring your vision to life by yourself. You are accountable for bringing that vision to life, but your accountability has to cascade down to the people on your team, which then has to flow to the people on their team. If each person isn’t achieving the outcome they need to create, their failure becomes the failure of the person who leads them. Their failure rolls up to the leader one level up. It isn’t easy to build or maintain a culture of accountability, and once it’s lost, it is even more difficult to reclaim, often requiring a complete transformation. If there is no accountability, or if the accountability doesn’t cascade down, it is the leader’s fault.No Communication: All of what is listed above this line must be communicated. The communication must be clear and unambiguous. It must also be delivered consistently. A lack of communication exposes the leader to lose the vision, the motivation, the standards, and the accountability. Nothing a leader says is true if they only say it once. If it isn’t constantly repeated, it will not become real. Every conversation must point back to the vision, the drive, the standards, and the accountabilities. If you do not consistently communicate these things, they will not matter.No Will: A leader must be patient and persistent. As a leader, you will be tested. Some will attempt to wait you out, believing that you will eventually give up on your vision. Others will nibble around the edges of your standards, lowering them to make things easier. If allowed, many will avoid accountability, preferring not to accept responsibility for a goal or outcome. Every day, your will will be tested. There is no way for you to split the difference; either you establish the standards and insist on them, or you accept poor performance and sacrifice your vision.No Decisions: Most of what a leader does shows up in their world as decisions. The refusal to make decisions, large or small, is to not lead. Some decisions are strategic and difficult to make when you lack perfect information. Avoiding the decision doesn’t improve things, and it postpones the results you need. Other decisions, difficult as they may be, are obvious and need to be taken sooner rather than later. It’s a form of negligence not to decide and act, and it prevents the rest of the group you lead from taking action or producing the result you need from them.No Thinking: A leader needs to spend time thinking. They need to read, to pay attention to what is going on in the world, and what it means for them and the people and organization for which they are responsible. Thinking is demanding and difficult work, maybe the most difficult. One of the reasons it is difficult to make decisions is because you haven’t done the work to think it through. Good leaders spend time thinking, often alone with their thoughts. Poor leaders believe they know everything they need to know.No Example: The leader is the example. The people in your charge are a reflection of you. They become what you are. If you embody all the things you want your organization to be, they will become that. If you aren’t the exemplar, they will lack a model. Or worse, their model will be someone who isn’t aligned with you or your vision. You must be excellent for your people to be excellent.Like anything written in the negative, turn these around, and you have found a way to improve your leadership. Free Webinar Series!

Maoists kill carpenter in Chhattisgarh

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://image2.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2017/IMG5124.jpg" alt="first_img" />NAGPUR: A civilian was killed by suspected Maoists in Rajnandgoan district of Chhattisgarh on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday.“Twenty-eight-year-old Pavan Dehari, a resident of Rajkatta village of Rajnandgoan, was shot dead by the Maoists near Baghdongari village under Aundhi police station limits at around midnight on Friday. Pavan Dehari was an innocent villager. He was working as a carpenter in Rajkatta village,” the police said in a statement on Saturday. The police said the killing was an “act of frustration by the Maoists”.Creating terror“He was innocent and killed with the sole purpose of creating terror among common villagers because the security forces are gaining the villagers’ trust in this area. The Maoists’ influence in this area is on the decline, which is why they carried out such a cowardly attack. They have once again proved that their main aim is to kill innocent people,” the police statement added.Dehari was killed in the area where security forces had gunned down three “hardcore” Maoists two months ago in an encounter. In a separate incident, the security forces managed to foil a Maoist ambush in Bijapur district when they detected four improvised explosives devices (IEDs) on Bhopalpatnam-Madded road on Saturday. The IEDs were planted on the route of a road opening party of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and the police. But security forces managed to detect and defuse the explosives near Pengadpalli village.<img src="http://image2.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2017/IMG2784.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8226"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

India’s domination of ICC should end: Tony Greig

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://image1.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2020/IMG344.jpg" alt="first_img" />Former England captain Tony Greig.Ending India’s “domination” of the ICC and dismissing the “nonsense” idea of having a window for the IPL would top Tony Greig’s agenda if the former England captain is given charge of cricket’s world governing body.”Number one, we have got to try and get the ICC right. We have a situation at the moment where the ICC is dominated by India. They tell Zimbabwe, Bangladesh and one or two other countries what to do and they always get the vote,” Greig told the ‘BBC’ in an interview.”It’s very hard, but somehow we have got to change things at that level,” he added.Greig said there is too much cricket being played and having a separate window for the IPL would be ridiculous while players complain of burnout.”We are playing too much cricket. I would be getting all the countries from the world and saying hey listen, what is this nonsense of giving Indian domestic cricket an open window?”To give the IPL (Indian Premier League, a domestic Twenty20 competition) an open window, and reduce by two months the time available for cricketers to play around the world, in the current environment is just ridiculous.”We have got to look very, very closely and make sure we do not destroy the cornerstone of the game which is Test cricket,” said the 64-year-old former all-rounder, who is now a commentator.Greig said it was unfortunate to see players such as Chris Gayle coming up with batting fireworks in the IPL while the West Indies took on Pakistan in a Test series.advertisement”It is laughable that (Chris) Gayle and (Kieron) Pollard are playing in the IPL when the West Indies are playing Pakistan — that is just ridiculous.”Greig, however, maintained that he loves the cricketing atmosphere in India.”I took to India and the subcontinent very much…I loved the place,” said Greig, ahead of the publication of a new biography, ‘Tony Greig: A Reappraisal of English Cricket’s Most Controversial Captain,’ by David Tossell.”It was the first time I really felt as if we were entertaining people, as the people there loved the game so much — to go to those stadiums and find them packed full.”To this day (Kolkata’s) Eden Gardens remains one of my top three grounds, just because of the incredible atmosphere,” he added.- With PTI inputs<img src="http://image1.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2071/IMG10359.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8210"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Penguins Even Rangers Series, 1-1

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://a34.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/A2035/IMG962.jpg" alt="first_img" />PITTSBURGH — Sidney Crosby flicked the puck away from a New York Ranger, darted around another and veered in on Henrik Lundqvist.The sizzling wrist shot sailed high and wide of the net and ultimately out of play.Not that it mattered. The message had been sent. For the first time perhaps all postseason, Crosby looked like Crosby.The fact the Pittsburgh Penguins looked like the Pittsburgh Penguins was hardly a coincidence.Kris Letang broke a scoreless tie in the second period and Marc-Andre Fleury made 22 saves for his seventh playoff shutout to lift the Penguins to a 3-0 victory over the New York Rangers on May 4, tying the second-round series at one game apiece. Game 3 is May 5 in New York.Crosby’s postseason scoring drought reached 13 games, but after looking lethargic in a Game 1 loss he responded with arguably his best game of the playoffs.The regular-season scoring champion and Hart Trophy finalist pumped out a game-high six shots while providing a spark his team desperately needed.“To see Sid play like that tonight was really inspiring for everybody in our dressing room,” Letang said. “He was really dangerous.”The Rangers not so much.After taking Game 1 in overtime, New York looked very much like a team playing for the fourth time in six days. The Rangers mustered only 22 shots and spent most of the night in their own end relying on the typically brilliant Lundqvist to bail them out.“They played a little harder than we did in certain areas and for longer and we didn’t sustain it,” New York forward Brad Richards said. “They were desperate. They knew they had to win this game.”Letang’s 15th career postseason goal matched Larry Murphy’s record for Penguins defensemen. Jussi Jokinen scored during a third-period power play, and Evgeni Malkin added an empty-net goal for the Penguins.Lundqvist made 32 saves, but the Rangers never threatened to head home with a commanding 2-0 lead. New York’s limp power play went 0 for 4 and hasn’t scored in 29 straight advantages.The Rangers have lost eight straight Game 2s and have dropped an NHL-record 13 consecutive games when leading in a series.They had their chances to jump ahead early, only to be let down again by the power play.Three times in the first 10 minutes a Penguins player trudged to the penalty box, and three times the Rangers spent two minutes skating around as though they were killing time before getting back to even strength.“It could have given us some momentum but we didn’t finish,” New York coach Alain Vigneault said. “I’ve got to find the right trigger points here to make it work and we’ll spend the night trying to figure it out.”While the Rangers search for answers, Crosby appears to have found one. The league’s biggest star has tried to remain positive during his extended funk and coach Dan Bylsma promise that his captain would be at his “best” when the moment required.It certainly looked like it as Crosby relentlessly buzzed around Lundqvist.“He was all around it on both ends of the rink,” Bylsma said.Lundqvist made a sprawling right pad save on Crosby midway through the second period to keep the game scoreless, though Lundqvist wasn’t so fortunate the next time the Penguins bore down on him.Chris Kunitz began a breakout by feeding Malkin at the New York blue line. Malkin slipped the puck over to Letang, who flipped a crossing pass to a streaking Kunitz. Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi dived headfirst to block it only to watch the puck deflect off his stick and past a surprised Lundqvist to give Pittsburgh the lead.Fleury had little problem letting the one-goal advantage stand up. The Rangers rarely challenged him over the final 30 minutes, and Jokinen and Malkin removed any remaining drama by scoring twice in the last 5 minutes.Jokinen banged in a rebound off a shot by James Neal for his fourth goal of the playoffs with 3:30 remaining. Malkin beat two Rangers to tap in an empty-net goal with 54 seconds left as the Penguins exhaled.(WILL GRAVES, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shares<img src="http://c61.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2061/IMG6043.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8160"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Refugee Will Carry Olympic Flame

After a six-day relay around Greece it will be handed over to the Organizing Committee of the Rio Games on April 27 at the Panathenaic Stadium of Athens.In the presentation that took place at the stadium, an Olympic symbol, the President of the Hellenic Olympic Committee Spyros Kapralos said that “besides the timeless significance this Flame Lighting has for our country, it coincides with the 80-year anniversary since the first time the Flame was lit at the sacred land of Ancient Olympia, to light up the Modern Olympic Games,” Kathimerini reported.“The shine of the Olympic Flame also contains some of the shine of Greece,” he said, adding that “the Lighting of the Flame links the ancient and modern civilizations and presents to every generation the ideals and values that were born in Ancient Greece and then travelled across the whole world, giving physical substance to the meanings of culture and peace.”Kapralos also stated that the HOC, in association with the United Nations and the International Olympic Committee, has picked a Syrian refugee who has claimed asylum in Greece to be one of the torch carriers in the relay in Greece but didn’t give his name.Greek pop music superstar Sakis Rouvas will headline the Handover Ceremony, as he leads the Ellada Boris (i.e. Greece You Can) campaign to assist the Greek Olympic squad. The singer called on Greeks to deliver “a message of peace, noble competition, passion, optimism and pride,” the paper said.TweetPinShare0 Shares<img src="http://C60.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2060/IMG712.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8152"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Notley’s Knowledge Critical To Australian Success

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://b54.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/B2054/IMG14277.jpg" alt="first_img" />The 2010 Masters Trans Tasman Test Series will be Notley’s sixth Trans Tasman Series, in what has been a stellar career. This has also included four World Cups and numerous achievements. He is a member of the Touch Football Australia (TFA) Hall of Fame, part of the TFA All Star 30 side and has represented Australia since 1987.Notley played his first Trans Tasman in 1988, and he can’t wait to take on New Zealand later on this week. “I was a bit quicker and fitter in those days. I’m just looking forward to playing the kiwi’s again. I haven’t played them in some time,” Notley said. Notley has been one of the greats of the sport over the years, but is humble when asked how it feels to be one of the most capped players in the history of Touch. “It makes me feel old, I think that’s all that means,” he said. The Men’s 40’s division will see two of the greats battle it out against each other, with Notley and New Zealand’s Peter Walters going head to head once again. They have played against each other many times during their illustrious careers, and Notley says that his side needs to watch out for the man known as ‘Mr Touch’.“He’ll certainly be one of the danger players but there’s no doubt he’s a bit older now and a bit slower than he was so hopefully we’ll manage him better than we have in the past,” Notley said.  As for the Australian team, Notley and three of his 2010 National Touch League winning South Queensland Sharks teammates will take to the field with him in the Men’s 40’s division. There is also one of his Sharks teammates lining up against the Australian side.“There were five Sharks in the Australian team but one of them pulled out. There’s also a Sharks member in the New Zealand team, that’s Bruce McDonald. He’s quite good so it’s a bit of a shame that he’s not representing Australia. He knows all of our secrets!” he said. Notley says that last month’s training camp went well, and that the team is looking forward to taking to the field in two days time. “(It was) quite good. We had to iron out a few little things and I think everyone left there pretty happy with the way things went. “It’s hard to say (how we’ll go). I haven’t played a lot of 40’s. We’ve had one player pull out who was a bit of a loss for us in Dave Raper, but I do think we have other strengths defensively and with our go forward, both of them look pretty good.” The 2010 Masters Trans Tasman Test Series will be played from Friday, 11 June to Sunday, 13 June 2010 at Townsville’s Queens Park.

The Evolution of Child Care OpEd

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://a43.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/A2043/IMG16307.jpg" alt="first_img" />Early childhood education and care is a need for most families in Nova Scotia. When the Advisory Council on the Status of Women was formed in 1977, child care was identified as a priority for women. It still is — nearly 30 years later. But our understanding of what the system should look like has evolved as families have, and it is important that Nova Scotians work toward a system that supports many different family types. In 2006, most Nova Scotia parents with children under the age of six are working parents. Nova Scotia employers and our economy rely upon all workers to be productive, and parents can be most productive if their children are in high-quality care that they can afford. That system must be flexible for the variety of families who rely upon it. Some of those families do shift work, many live in rural communities, and some of the children have special developmental or physical needs, or language and cultural needs. High-quality early childhood education and care gives children the best start in school and in life. It prepares young Nova Scotians to build our province in the future. It is appropriate for all families, including those where a parent chooses to be at home with the children before they begin school. Flexibility and a range of options are key components of an excellent system. Another important component is that the system pay child-care workers an equitable wage based on the value of their education and on the value of their contribution to society. It is in the best interest of all Nova Scotians to have the best early childhood care and education we can afford today. The province has just launched its 10-year Child Care Strategy, despite the severe reduction in funding from Ottawa. Now, Nova Scotians must work toward a system that supports many types of families and all our children. -30-<img src="http://a43.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/A2043/IMG3233.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8063"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Bell Media opens gates to HBO content Hollywood movies under new Crave

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://c71.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2071/IMG18315.jpg" alt="first_img" />TORONTO – Viewers hoping to catch the latest HBO series and fresh Hollywood movies have a new choice in their streaming options.Bell Media says it’s throwing open the gates to its vast library of content that was previously only available to cable subscribers of The Movie Network and HBO Canada.Starting next week, Canadians will have access to a bulked up version of the Crave streaming platform, dubbed Crave+, for an additional fee of about $10 per month.It’s a significant change for cable subscribers who were hanging onto their TV packages for access to TMN and its sister channels.Under the new Crave+ they will have the option to join other cord-cutters, though some cable providers may sell the Crave package at a discount with other set-top TV offerings.The move comes as Bell Media contends with competition from Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.“Every day you read about a new offering that’s in the marketplace,” said Bell Media chief executive Randy Lennox in an interview, highlighting how Crave is now considered both a TV and online option.“We’re trying to be on both sides of the highway.”The new Crave+ package includes all of Showtime and older HBO series previously on CraveTV, plus a roster of more recent shows like new seasons of “Game of Thrones” and “Westworld.”Customers who don’t want the extra stuff can hang onto a basic Crave package, which includes series from Vice, Showtime and Crave exclusives like “Letterkenny” and “Star Trek: Discovery.”Bell Media is in the midst of widespread changes to its TV channels which include a decision to retire its brand The Movie Network and replace it with channels under the Crave name.Companies in this story: (TSX: BCE)<img src="http://b57.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/B2057/IMG9951.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8002"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Red Cross concerned over spread of waterborne diseases

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p>According to the Government, more than 630,000 people have been affected, including 70,000 who remain in temporary shelters having been forced to abandon their homes. More than 203 people have been killed and close to 100 are missing so far. Many of the volunteers are from affected communities and have been responding to the crisis since thefloodwaters started to rise.Red Cross teams have helped to evacuate more than 7,500 people to safety in seven of the worst affecteddistricts, performing life-saving first aid and delivering food and other emergency relief items to affected people.As the floodwaters begin to subside one of the priorities has been decontaminating wells to ensure that people have a safe drinking source and to prevent outbreaks of diseases such as dengue. The flooding has contaminated drinking water sources and damaged toilets and sanitation systems, raising the risk of water-borne diseases, including dengue. The Red Cross is concerned about the spread of water-borne diseases in the aftermath of the catastrophic floods and landslides that have engulfed south-western Sri Lanka in recent days.The floods – triggered by the beginnings of Tropical Cyclone Mora – were the worst to hit Sri Lanka in 14 years. In response to the urgent humanitarian needs, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and SLRCS have today launched an international emergency appeal for two million Swiss francs (approximately 2.1 million USD or 1.9 million EUR). Through this appeal, Red Cross volunteers and staff will assist 40,000 people with emergency relief items including shelter materials and household items; provision of medical and first aid services; support to schools and community health centres; clean water and sanitation; and cash grants to help people recover their livelihoods. “Tens of thousands of people are still unable to return home,” said Jagath Abeysinghe, President of Sri Lanka Red Cross Society (SLRCS). “Dengue is endemic in Sri Lanka and with so much standing water, conditions are ripe for mosquitoes to breed and spread the disease. Providing clean water and sanitation together with awareness on preventing communicable diseases is a critical part of in our humanitarian response.”SLRCS disaster response teams and volunteers have been on the ground supporting the emergency aid effort. “This is the beginning of the monsoon, more rain is expected and our goal now is to help these people recover so that they can cope with any further challenges and begin to rebuild what they have lost,” said Gerhard Tauscher, IFRC Operations Manager in Sri Lanka.<span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7947"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->
