****************************

This is the continuation of a photo-project that I began in the summer of 2008: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

As I indicated when I started this project in 2008, I don’t like to intrude on people’s privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they’re still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what’s right in front of me.

I’ve also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting — literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I’ve learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture … after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it’s pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject.

Thus far, I’ve generally avoided photographing bums, drunks, crazies, and homeless people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don’t want to be photographed, and I don’t want to feel like I’m taking advantage of them. I’m still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We’ll see how it goes …

The only other thing I’ve noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, far more people who are not so interesting. They’re probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I’ve photographed … but there was just nothing memorable about them.

Pigeons show up in all sorts of public places in NYC, especially if someone is kind enough (or crazy enough) to start tossing bread crumbs in their general direction. That’s what was going on here, in an open part of Verdi Square, at 72nd St and Broadway

This is part of an evolving photo-project, which will probably continue throughout the summer of 2008, and perhaps beyond: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

Are you really know how to use laptop battery?Today, editor from Supply-batteries.co.uk write this blog post to inform you how to use a laptop battery, and prolong your life.May be you are now have a laptop or more, but how many tips are you have? How to take care laptop battery, if you use a laptop ac adapter to connect laptop for long time? These questions seems not serious, but they are actually affect laptop battery’s life. Are you want to get a long time laptop? OK, let’s learn how to use laptop!1. Battery SchemeMost laptops has the function of automatic frequency reduction, this function’s advantage is prolong the laptop battery using time. The users of Celeron CPU based laptop might puzzled, their laptops don not have this function, So is it have no way to save power? The CPU is just one part of the save power union, actually, The power consuming parts are: LCD > CPU(full speed) > graphics card > WLAN card > CPU fan. That to say, except the CPU, we can also maximumly reducing power consumption from the other parts.If you are a Windows xp user, you can find the power management options in the Windows XP control panel. Choosing “power using scheme”, then setting LCD screen in idle 10 minutes to close, and set the disk above 15 minutes. Because the momentary boot disk requires a certain power, and frequently start or stop will damage the disk. Of course you can close the screen manually, most laptop can do this by FN function key and F3 key.The above are the way to save laptop battery power through Setting LCD and disk closing time. if you want to further saving battery power, you need to adjust the operation of the system state, But this is not a Windows XP operate system can done. For example, The Thinkpad laptop have a self-contained battery management software. Lenovo battery Thinkpad Battery. General laptop screen will provide 8 level brightness adjusting, although the brightest state can get the best visual effect, but it was very, very power consumption. So, when edit the document or some other common application, the screen brightness should adjusted to the 7 level or lower 6 level appropriate. Meanwhile, the CPU can also set up to best battery performance, CPU fan operation state set up to “equilibrium” more laptop battery power saving. Be aware of some laptop have no battery management software (because they have no built-in power management chips), but we also can use common battery monitoring software to manage the laptop battery. BatteryMon was a good common battery monitoring software.For example, we test thinkpad T61 battery. When thinkpad t61 run at full speed played on DVD, the laptop battery life is only 2 hours and 37 minutes. If the t61 laptop battery optimized solutions use, its life can reach to about 3 hours and 17 minutes. we can see the ascension was very obvious. These are setting up laptop screen brightness, laptop CPU speed, laptop fan speed to save battery power. Replacement lenovo thinpad ac adapter.2. The correct laptop battery charging methodsMost laptop user tend to charge to laptop battery when the battery power less than 100%, but supply-batteries.co.uk ‘s editor will tell you that’s a bad case of laptop using method. If you do this method for long time, your laptop battery’s life will be shorten quickly! So, supply battery advise you to charge battery after the battery power lower than 10%, but do not let it lower than 3%. In order to follow the method, you need to config the battery power alarm. For best use, we can set it up to lower than 10%, if you set up lower than 3%, the laptop can not turn on to the next time. Most laptop battery management software are default setting up to charge when power below 96%, but this chargement will harm to your laptop battery. So, you need to change the config of the charging set. In addition, it’s useful to turn off your laptop when you charging it, that’s can prolong your laptop battery life.3. Is Discharge nec batteriesessary?If your in using for a long time and power greatly reduced, you can try to depth discharge to save it. This is a “dead straws when” method, do it only if nothing you can do. The best discharge method is constantly running the laptop program. When battery power is below 3% then restart laptop and enter BIOS to vacancy run until laptop automatic power off. After depth discharge, Then use a battery charger or adapter to keep a depth charging, the charging time need to over 8 hours, but not more than 12 hours, Keeping this way, your laptop lithium battery will restore some power electric.

Maybe this year will be the laptop battery “recall year” to open the major IT sites, laptop battery has become one of the most popular topics. Because of, including Dell, HP, Lenovo, Toshiba, Apple, Fujitsu, one after another, including the brand recall of laptop batteries, some doubts have also followed the emergence of mechanical and electrical integration thesis, in which pairs of consumers, funny articles, the most lethal is whether the price of laptop laptop battery recall due to problems higher in Europe. Although the current situation is not optimistic about the major brands of laptop battery recall cumulative total has been close to 800 million mark is expected to be more than 10 million, which will certainly result in laptop battery a “tense” phenomenon. However, I feel great need not necessarily be unfounded, after all, is just a temporary shortage of laptop batteries, not to mention the problems arising out of stock, and there is no less serious than imagined. Recall the long process of laptop battery manufacturers effectively slow down the pressure of Although the present need to recall 7.7 million laptop batteries, but 7.7 million laptop batteries are not asking for change at the same time together on the End: First of all, the major brand recall after prior periods. Such was first Dell and Apple, respectively, in the August recall of 4.2 million and 1.8 million laptop batteries, laptop battery recall and the recently released information on the Sharp. Because of the response back at different times, making it a 7.7 million laptop batteries to be carried out in batches. Second, the users are familiar with the process of recalling all know, the laptop battery recall process normally requires a month’s time. Users typically first make an application vendors a month or even longer period of time, will send a new laptop battery users, or door replacement. such as Dell laptop battery replacement time, the need 20-75 working days, the actual need for a month or even almost nearly 4 months to complete. stand in Sony’s position is concerned, of course, hope that the time delay was longer good, this way, can effectively reduce the supply to alleviate a shortage of laptop batteries. Finally, the user applied for a replacement laptop battery is mixed. In particular, such as Dell and Apple laptop battery recall involving large manufacturers, due to too many users, while manufacturers can not simultaneously receive all of the other hand, users themselves can not be At the same time apply for replacement laptop batteries, there is always a time lag. In view of the above three considerations, this laptop battery recall may be dragged by the end of, or even early next year. As previously mentioned, the longer the delay, the Sony pluses and no minuses. In fact, the entire laptop battery industry also has a positive impact – can greatly alleviate the shortage of laptop batteries phenomenon. From this perspective, although a large number of 7.7 million, but the specific to 5 months (August ~ December), monthly average may be only 1.54 million need to recall laptop batteries, after chord sara, the figure is only a month Sony laptop battery production 17%. According to the latest statistics show that in the third quarter, Sanyo laptop battery production is 42 million, Sony’s production of 27 million, Samsung SDI output of 26 million. Big Three laptop battery production totaled 9500 10000, China’s military weapons, pictures, even assuming that the need to recall 7.7 million laptop batteries all in the third quarter to complete the replacement, close combat Collected Works 3, the replacement laptop battery volume accounts for only about 8% of total output, even if it would be the other has not recall all the laptop battery replacement, accounting for some of the ratio is only 10.8%. There is no doubt that these data show that the laptop battery recall laptop battery supply is indeed to bring some influence, but falls far short of “lethal “stage.The price of laptop battery can be up in the end how much? Laptop laptop battery is currently out of stock due to the impact of prices have risen about 15%. And according to industry sources, prices will continue the momentum into the fourth quarter of Guizhou Province, chairman of the CPPCC, which verified the number I guess in front of — – laptop battery recall is likely to continue until the end of the year. As a result, in the fourth quarter, laptop battery industry is still facing shortages. According to Cheng Uei Precision Industry, Inc. (a laptop battery manufacturer, its customers include Dell, Sony, and HP, etc.) sales manager to say: This year the fourth quarter, laptop batteries used in laptop prices will rise 10%. Since the current retail price of laptop battery has not increased, the basic maintenance of no price increases before the price system. While the prices of the above information on laptop batteries, let’s not difficult to reach a conclusion: in the fourth quarter, laptop batteries retail price will rise 25%. Well, this 25% of the consumers, online TV shows I’m the boss, how much money we need to do more?

Some Ways To Save Laptop Battery Power When You Really Need It Batteries

Some Ways To Save Laptop Battery Power When You Really Need It Batteries

You’ve got a five-hour flight from Los Angeles to New York City, and one battery in your laptop. You’ve got work to do, DVDs to watch, and games to play. How are you going to get that battery to last? Well, hidden inside (and outside) your computer are lots of tricks to help you.

Dimming Your Screen

Your screen and hard drive use up more battery power than any other parts of your computer. You can dim down your screen to a point where your eyes still feel comfortable but you also save energy. On most laptops, you first dim the screen by holding down the “Fn” key (go ahead and find it because you may never have used it before). Then you look for a key on your laptop that either has a picture of a sun or a half-moon. (On my Sony Vaio that key happens to be F5.) If you find it, go ahead and hit it while still holding down the Fn key. A brightness adjustment box should show up on your screen. If you can’t find a key with a sun or half-moon on it, try hitting your various arrow keys while holding down Fn, to see if that works.

Turning Off Your Screen Altogether

If dimming your screen is good for saving battery life, turning it off when you’re not using it is even better. To turn off your screen, we’re going to have to go into some settings in the Control Panel. You’ll soon see these settings are not only good for turning off screens; they perform a whole host of battery saving functions.

Click on Start, then on Control Panel. If your Control Panel is shown in the “Category View”, click first on Performance and Maintenance, then on Power Options. If your Control Panel is in Classic View, simply click on the Power Options icon. Next click on the Power Schemes Tab. Underneath where it says Running on Batteries and across from where it says Turn Off Monitor, choose how quickly you’d like your monitor to shut off when you’re not actively using it.

That Power Options Properties box we just opened brings us to a whole host of other enticing options we can employ on our cross-country flight!

Choosing a Power Scheme

Windows XP offers two Power Schemes appropriate for laptops on the go. These are Portable/Laptop and Max Battery. They can both be chosen in the Power Schemes tab of the Power Options Properties box. Both power schemes conserve battery power. But Portable laptop adjusts what it conserves to the amount of power you need at the time, while Max Battery is much less flexible. It keeps your computer at a very low constant power rate no matter what you may be doing. So if you are planning on watching a DVD on that flight, which uses a lot of battery power, I don’t recommend using the Max Battery power scheme. It might not give you enough power.

Each power scheme also has its own settings for when the monitor and hard disks should be turned off. Remember that both are huge energy hogs, and that both the monitor and hard disk remain on longer under Portable/Laptop than they do under Max Battery.

The power scheme you choose also determines how long the computer will wait to go into Standby mode or Hibernate after remaining idle. Standby conserves energy because it turns off your hard disk and monitor. However, whatever you were working on at the time stays in memory (RAM) instead of being saved safely to your hard drive. The upside of Standby, though, is that when you press any key your computer will come out of the mode rather quickly.

Hibernation saves even more energy because it saves your work to the hard drive and then shuts your computer down almost all the way. Inherently, of course, this means it takes the computer longer to wake up to its normal state, but when everything does come back on, it looks the same as before. To switch your computer to Standby mode manually, click on Start, then on Turn off Computer, then on Standby. To make your computer Hibernate manually, click on Start and Turn off Computer again, but this time hold down the Shift key down afterward. The Standby key switches to “Hibernate”. Click it and your computer will go into Hibernation mode.

Creating Your Own Profiles

Maybe you don’t like the two power saving choices Windows gives you. Maybe you want to create custom ones to suit your own needs. You can do that! I created one for “Long Plane Rides”. I adjusted the settings in the Power Options Properties box. For instance, I indicated I wanted my monitor to turn off after only 2 minutes of idle time, and my hard disks after 3 minutes. Then I clicked on Save As, named my profile, and clicked OK. Now maybe the battery will last even longer on the flight.

Let’s go through some other choices in the Power Options Properties box. Under the Alarm tab, you can check boxes to either be alerted when your battery is low and/or when your battery is critical. You can even use the slider to make your own determination of just what is low and what is critical. Then you can click on Alarm Action to tell your computer to, for instance, sound an alarm or go into Standby mode when those moments are reached.

Under the Advanced tab, you can choose what you want your laptop to do when you close the lid. You can choose it to go into Standby mode, Hibernation, or even do nothing if you wish. You can also choose what you’d like the computer to do when you hit the power button.

If you’re interested in using your laptop’s Hibernation feature you should check the box under the Hibernation tab that says Enable Hibernation.

Turn Off Wireless Network Card

Your wireless card can also be a drain on your battery’s resources, so disable it if you don’t need it. (You don’t need it obviously on a plane, for instance.) If your laptop has a wireless card, simply take it out. If your laptop has wireless built-in, you can disable it in Windows XP by clicking on Start and going to your Control Panel. In Category View, click on Network and Internet Connections, then Network Connections. In Classic View, simply click on Network Connections. Once you’re there, right click on the wireless connection you’re using, and click on Disable. You can also disable your wireless network card through the Device Manager. Right click on My Computer and left click on Properties. Click on the Hardware tab and then the Device Manager button. Next, click on the small black cross next to where it says Network Adapters. Locate your wireless network adapter, right click on it, and left click on Disable.

You can also left click on Properties instead (after you right click on your network adapter), click on the Power Management tab, and check the box that says “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”.

Some newer laptops with the Intel Mobile Pentium® chip have a button somewhere on the laptop itself, for instance on the front, to enable you to easily turn your wireless on or off. You may have to check your laptop’s manual to find out if you have a button and if so, where it is.

CPU Throttling

The Intel Mobile Pentium® laptops also sport a feature known as CPU Throttling (and named SpeedStep™ by Intel), that actually slows down your processor when you’re running on the battery. When you’re plugged into your AC, your processor runs full speed ahead. But when you unplug that cord, it shifts into a lower gear. A processor running at a lower speed and using less voltage saves your battery even that much more juice.

So now you have a number of tools to implement in order to save your computer’s precious battery power. But maybe instead on that next long distance flight, you might want to think ahead and book a seat with a power outlet.
