Castello Carrarese di Este in Este, Italy
Travel

The area where the town of Este in northern Italy is located was originally occupied by the important Roman town of Ateste, and also inhabited before Roman times. Barbarian invasions and floods destroyed the ancient town during the late sixth century. Then nothing is said of the town in historical sources until the 10th century.The origins of this castle—not to be confused with the moated Este Castle in Ferrara—are also unclear. One hypothesis is that the castle was originally a mansion of a local lord that was progressively expanded, and at some point it may have been part of a system of fortifications surrounding a central citadel. The castle was assaulted numerous times during the 13th and 14th centuries. The original structure was destroyed in 1249 by the troops of the powerful nobleman Ezzelino II da Romano. The castle was probably partially rebuilt and destroyed again, maybe more than once. This constant process of destruction and rebuilding slowly deleted all the evidence of the original structure.

What Counts As Emotional Cheating? A Therapist Explains
Health

We tend to think of cheating as sexual, whether it's a one-night stand, virtual sex, or an ongoing affair. But in committed love relationships, "cheating" isn't always about a sexual encounter, secret flirtation, or online erotic event. Fundamentally, it's about breaching trust. What is emotional cheating? "Emotional cheating" is a particular type of secretive, sustained closeness with someone who isn't your primary partner. It's one person making a unilateral decision to cultivate nonsexual intimacy with someone other than their primary romantic partner in a way that weakens or undermines the relationship.Many see this type of connection as having an erotic component to it. Though there often can be an underlying romantic or erotic energy in emotional cheating, it can also occur without the element of romance or eroticism present. I've worked with couples who feel "emotionally cheated on" on by partners who share too much with friends, work colleagues, or even family members—people with whom there's no romantic frisson whatsoever. Nonetheless, they've experienced it as "emotional cheating" because their partners have engaged in an inappropriately deep, sustained closeness with someone else in a way that excluded them. I've even talked to people who feel their partner is emotionally cheating on them with a therapist!

My Unusual Journey in Image Creation and Photography
Photography

My name is Mike Keesling, and I have what I think is an interesting perspective on image creation and I wanted to share it with you. I grew up in a creative environment. My parents were both artists. Our house was the San Fernando Valley hub of the counterculture in the ’60s and ’70s. My father did light shows for Tina Turner, The Who, Pink Floyd to name a few. Busses full of hippies, painted on the outside, collaged in the inside would stop off at irregular intervals, unload tanks of nitrous oxide, pile into the pool, do their laundry, load up their tanks again, then depart for points unknown. These were interesting times. The “man” was stifling your creativity, holding you back, keeping you down. And thus, I pretty much had free reign to live my life as I chose. What I call “overly permissive parents.” When I was four, my father taught me how to use all of his tools. If I could hold it, I could use it. Electric drill, soldering iron, screwdrivers, jigsaw, you name it. Other kids had Lego; Lego held me back.

Read This Before You Ask an Event Photographer for Photos
Photography

Any event photographer gets tons of requests from people asking for specific photos from an event. Sometimes they will acquiesce, but often not. Don’t nag them if they don’t get back to you or say no. Here’s why. #1. Getting a photo off a camera is not like getting a photo off your phone.I often take as many as 2,500 photos in a night shooting a show, and only 2-4% of those will ever see daylight. The process of trimming the 96%+ of rejects is called “culling” and it consumes a significant portion of the post-processing time.Even if your photo made it past culling, it’s not as simple of just sending it over. What we have now are 40MB RAW files. A RAW file is the data captured by the camera’s light sensor, which includes information your eyes can’t see. These files cannot be used in any social media app or opened by anything other than software built to do so, such as Photoshop or Lightroom. Photographers shoot in RAW to give themselves more options in post-production, such as bringing out details from shadows without creating artifacts. These need to be edited (which is BIG) and then converted to JPEG before they become anything that can be used by normal people.
