MONTEREY COUNTY (CBS SF) — Monterey County health officials have lifted an advisory warning that told people to avoid swimming at a state beach in Pacific Grove because of high levels of bacteria found there.

The advisory for Asilomar State Beach was issued Tuesday by the Monterey County Health Department, which found high levels of indicator bacteria in samples taken a day earlier.

Follow up samples have revealed that bacteria subsided to levels considered safe for recreational contact.

More information on the status of Monterey Peninsula Beaches can be found by calling (800) 347-6363.

A Simple Setup for Product Photography on a Graduated Background

Featured Image -- 4917

Postado originalmente em Photofocus:

For the past nine weeks I have been taking a ceramics class here in Portland, and on the last day I brought in my camera to photograph some of the other students’ work. I didn’t want to go too elaborate with the setup, so I opted to make use of the beautiful diffused window-light coming into the classroom.

I recently purchased a graduated backdrop from Amazon to use for my pottery, the Varitone Graduated Vinyl Background #09 (31″x43″), and decided that this would be the perfect time to test it out. I placed it at a slight angle to the window to push the shadow at a slight angle behind the subject, but still allowing the light to come at the subject from the side (and not directly in front).

Melanoma, which causes nearly 9,000 deaths each year, is also one of the most common types of cancer among U.S. teens and young adults, the report says.

Data is the undisputed currency of the consumer Web. Whether it’s used to target ads or to personalize product recommendations every giant from Google to Facebook to Amazon relies on data to drive its user experience and fill its bank accounts.

It’s little surprise then that Prodege, the parent company to the popular consumer rewards and commerce platform SwagBucks, is making a play to increase its access to data.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. SodaHead’s team of seven full-time employees will stay with the company, relocating from Sherman Oaks to SwagBucks’ El Segundo offices.
