What is the difference between a short film and independent film?

Question by Samantha Marie Rivet: What is the difference between a short film and independent film?
Are they the same? Why are they different category’s? I’ve herd of independant short films…so I thought they were the same…or can they be both the same and two seperate things?
I don’t know if I’m making sense at all…but thanks.

Answer by Gray Area
A full length feature runs anywhere from 85 minutes to 2 and a half hours or a bit more. An independent film is simply one with private financing or financing outside of the traditional studio system. Short films are traditionally less than 20 minutes long. Just about every short film is an indie film as there isn’t really a market for them. The closest a studio comes to a short film are the lengthy marketing trailers that you watch before other films or on the web.

Tornado GR4 Aircraft

A Tornado GR4 aircraft at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan is pictured at night.

Entitled ‘The Beast of Kandahar’, this image was the winner of Category I ‘Best Amateur Military’ sponsored by Jessops in the RAF Photography competition 2012.

The Tornado GR4 is a variable geometry, two-seat, day or night, all-weather attack aircraft capable of delivering a wide variety of weapons.

Powered by two Rolls-Royce RB 199 Mk 103 turbofan engines, the GR4 is capable of low-level supersonic flight and can sustain a high subsonic cruise speed.

The aircraft can fly automatically at low level using Terrain Following Radar (TFR) when poor weather prevents visual flight. The aircraft is also equipped with Forward Looking InfraRed (FLIR) and is Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatible. This gives it a relatively unique all weather night capability as well as making it an impressive platform for mounting passive night electro-optical operations.

For navigation purposes, the Tornado is equipped with an integrated Global Positioning Inertial Navigation System (GPINS). The GR4 also has a Ground Mapping Radar (GMR) to identify fix-points and update navigation systems as well as providing an air to air search facility.
The GR4 is also equipped with a Laser Ranger and Marked Target Seeker (LRMTS) that can be used to locate targets designated on the ground or can provide accurate range information to ground targets.

Q&A: I downloaded the trial version of Photoshop CS5 from the adobe site?

Question by Robbe Gevaert: I downloaded the trial version of Photoshop CS5 from the adobe site?
I downloaded the trial version of Photoshop CS5 from the adobe site, and installed it, but I can’t seem to find any ‘launch photoshop here’ buttons. Can you please tell me where to find it, and in what folder?

Best answer:

Answer by Thecutkiller
If you have a windows PC, you should try looking in the place you installed the program.

Most likely:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5
It could be any drive, like D:\ and E:\

But try searching in that folder, you’ll most likely find it.

You can also try and look in the start menu.
The windows button on your keyboard.
In that menu you can most likely find it too.

What PS3 games use the PS Eye as a controller?

Question by Floymin: What PS3 games use the PS Eye as a controller?
I have seen a lot of people asking questions and praising the PS Eye about its ability to be used as a video and art studio, but I have yet to hear about games that use it as an actual controller. I am talking about full-blown games, not just the “toys”.

Best answer:

Answer by The Shadow™ ®
there are only about 3 games downloadable from the playstation store that use it , I can’t remember the names but you just go to the playstation store and select games > playstation eye games . there is eyepet too but it’s not available in north america yet . when the motion controller comes out it will combine the motion sensors in the camera with the controller .

PARROQUIA SANTIAGO APOSTOL.(carcaboso)

El lugar donde actualmente se sitúa Carcaboso fue en tiempos romanos un lugar de paso debido a su proximidad a la Vía de la Plata (actaualmente esta calzada separa los términos de Carcaboso y Plasencia).
De esta época se conservan en Carcaboso varios miliarios romanos, que actualmente están colocados junto a la iglesia del pueblo.
En uno de estos miliarios puede leerse la inscripción:
IMP. CAESAR DIVI. TRAIANI. PAR THICI. F. DIVI. NER. VAE. NEPOS. TRAIA NVS. HADRIANUS AVG. PONTIF. MAX. TRIB. POT. V. COS. CII RESTITVIT CIII
En latín: El emperador César Trajano Adriano, hijo del Divo Trajano, vencedor de los Parthos y nieto del Divo Nerva Augusto por la potestad tribunicia quinta vez cónsul… hizo esta reparación, siendo el presente miliario el 102
Los miliarios que actualmente se encuentran alrededor de la iglesia parroquial son los que se encontraban antiguamente en un corral de la calle Aldehuela.
