Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Similar weather today and tomorrow to what we saw this weekend. A large part of Ohio will be dry, but with the heat still around, instability will be here too. That means we have threats for afternoon pop up thunderstorms, just like the past couple of days. Coverage on these will be limited to 30% of the state or less, but we cant rule them out. Moisture potential is up to half an inch, unless we see some really strong action come together, at which point we can blow that upper end of the range out of the water. The remains of Barry finally make it into the ECB tomorrow night. We do not think we take a direct hit from the system, but the bands of moisture that are rotating around will swing up into parts of Ohio from time to time. Wednesday and Thursday , we are looking for anywhere from .1”-1.5” over about 80% of the state, and an additional 10% may be able to get closer to or above 1”, if strong thunderstorms arrive. The biggest and best rains will be limited to KY and TN, along with the Mississippi river valley. This kind of set up will likely be the best for us, though, as many areas continue to report the need for at least a little rain. Everything should wind down by Thursday midday. We are mostly dry for Friday, Saturday, although we cant rule out scattered showers and even a thunderstorm in northern and northwest Ohio later Saturday afternoon through midnight Saturday night. The action is limited to those areas the way things look right now, with rain totals up to .75″ and 60% coverage. Sunday that action slides a little farther south, hitting the rest of Ohio with the same 60% coverage. This allows for additional action along the stagnating frontal boundary Monday into Tuesday morning, where we can see an additional half inch of rain or less, with 70% coverage. The pattern turns drier again for the second half of next week, Wednesday through Friday. But, if the moisture that we are projecting does actually arrive with good coverage…we should be in better shape moving forward. The map below shows rain potential through the 10 day period.
Step 1: Create a New Caption FileClick the New Item button at the bottom of the Project Panel and select Captions. The new caption file will be a video file, and the settings will match with the current sequence you have open. You can manually adjust width and height, frame rate, and pixel aspect ratio before creating your new caption file.You have four choices of captions, including three options for closed captions. For the purpose of this tutorial, we’ll create a CEA-708 closed caption file. Be sure to Enable the Closed Captions Display in the Program Monitor and select the correct caption type. Drag the Caption video file onto the timeline.Step 2: Adding, Timing, and Formatting Your CaptionsSelect the Caption file and use the Caption Panel to add text, time, or to format your text. If you can’t see the Caption Panel, simply go to the window menu, and select Captions. Click the Plus button to add a new text box. Make sure your In and Out points match up with the spoken word.You can view the captions in the timeline by expanding the video track. You have a few formatting options, including the type of caption (pop-on, paint-on, 2-4 roll-up lines) and some simple positioning options. With open captions, you have a few extra options, such as additional fonts and size adjustments.Step 3: ExportIn the Export Settings dialog box, use the Caption tab to export the captions as Burn-in or as a Sidecar file. A Burn-in will naturally “burn” the captions into the video file, and viewers will not have the option to turn them off. When you export as a Sidecar file, you will be provided with an additional .scc file which you can upload or deliver with your video files.For more helpful walk-throughs and video tutorials, head on over to PremiumBeats YouTube channel! Creating captions can be a tedious process — but with Adobe Premiere Pro, you can easily create both open and closed captions, all from within the program.Top image via ShutterstockCaptions are simply text over video. You can create closed or open captions, the main difference being that viewers can turn off closed captions, while open captions are always on screen. Whichever option you go with, captions are always a good idea.Adobe’s latest update adds the ability to easily create open captions from within Premiere. Let’s take a look at how to add captions in Adobe Premiere Pro with a few simple steps. Watch the video tutorial directly below and then follow the step-by-step directions to add the technique to your skill set.
Last weekend I was reviewing my projects and tasks when I recognized how many of the projects and tasks had nothing to do with my goals now. I accumulated this list over the course of the last seven or eight years, and many of the tasks and projects are no longer relevant, and some of them belonged to issues that had been resolved over time. A good portion of them were things I am no longer interested in nor are they worth the investment of my time. Many of them are ideas and projects I would love to work on, but I haven’t touched since they went on the list.Even though it is critical to capture everything you want or need to do in a place where you can track those projects, ideas, and tasks, not everything can be substantial enough to command your time and energy. Deciding to release myself from the obligation I had to what was no longer relevant, I exported the entire list to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet (so I could be sure to have a record to review later) and pushed the delete button. All the tasks and projects disappeared, along with the power they held over me.I started over, typing in the major projects and outcomes that I genuinely care about and that are going to move me closer to my goals and aligned with my purpose. I added in the commitments I owe to other people, of which there were far fewer than I imagined. The list I deleted had 298 tasks, and the new list consists of 50 in 22 projects. About 15 of those tasks are routine maintenance, the things that I do every week, including things like emptying all my electronic inboxes and physical inboxes, and reviewing my lists and transferring the stuff I need to do into my analog sales planner.My project list and task lists are now much smaller. All the items on those lists are vital to me now. I liked a lot of ideas and potential projects that are on the list I deleted, and someday a few of them may resurface. What I have now is not a greater sense of control, but also a greater sense of clarity. Which brings us to the big idea.We collect a lot of projects and tasks and commitments. We make many more commitments than we realize, some which seem small and innocuous when we make them. Over time, the list of things that we have said yes to, and the list of things that someone else commits us to, without us recognizing how overcommitted we are. Each new project or tasks commands a tiny sliver of our remaining time, and energy, and focus. Even though we aren’t always conscious of each of those commitments, they each take a little bit of our psychic RAM, and they contribute to an overall sense of overwhelm.Starting with a clean sheet of paper provides a sense of clarity. It’s a chance to decide what is important to you, and an opportunity to release yourself from things that are no longer who you are—and no longer part of what you are here to do. If any of what is here resonates with you, I invite you to give yourself the gift of a do-over and write down what you want, what projects are critical to you, and what you should be doing with your limited time and energy to make the contribution you are here to make.After I deleted my task list, I wrote this post that I published on the blog yesterday: Being Overcommitted is a Sign of Being Uncommitted to Your Goals.
The Odisha government on Tuesday decided to celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi for two years from October 2 this year.
