The event will benefit The Mac Miller Circles Fund to support youth arts & community-building programs in Mac Miller’s memory. Visit https://t.co/zM41C0Je0L to donate. https://t.co/s7cZYmGzkS— Mac (@MacMiller) October 29, 2018The concert will benefit Mac Miller’s Circles Fund. The foundation notes that “in honor of Malcolm’s commitment to the arts, The Mac Miller Circles Fund will provide programming, resources and opportunities to youth from underserved communities, helping them recognize their full potential through exploration in the arts and community building.”Of all the high-profile participants scheduled to appear, John Mayer’s inclusion seems perhaps the most surprising. However, Mayer has been vocal in his admiration toward Mac Miller in the weeks following his death. As Mayer noted in a heartfelt Instagram post about the young artist,This was going to be Mac Miller’s year. He made a quantum leap in his music. That’s incredibly hard to do, to evolve and get better and more focused while your career is already underway. You don’t get there without a lot of work, and Mac had put the work in. I didn’t expect to play on his album the day he played some songs for me at his house, but when I heard “Small Worlds,” I gave it a short, chirpy little “yup,” which is the highest praise I can give a track. It means we don’t need to say another word, it’s going down. I grabbed the nearest guitar in the room and within a couple of hours we had finished a tune that made me so incredibly happy to have a part in, not to mention we established a nice little friendship. He was so funny I just kind of stopped typing “LOL” back in our texts. Mac was, to me, on permanent LOL status. I gave him whatever guidance I thought I had the right to, having been through the press ringer in the past and wanting him to understand that none of that noise could ever really take a bite out of the music he was about to put out.The last time I saw him, he was playing Hotel Cafe’ in Los Angeles for a crowd of 100 people. He was nervous, and honest about it with the audience. I thought that was so endearing, especially seeing as he would go on to play one of the best sets I’d seen in a very long time. His band was unreal. You gotta know that if you weren’t familiar with Mac Miller, you were about to be, whether you would have seen him at a festival, or a friend was going to catch a show and tell everyone they knew about it (like I did.) Mac put in the work. He made his best album and formed the band that was weeks away from becoming a breakout live sensation. Believe me when I say that. I send my love and support to everyone who knew him better, because what relative little I did, I just adored.last_img read more

Le climat et le temps en Afrique du Sud

first_imgRegion subtropicale, temperee par un ocean sur les trois cotes du pays et par l’altitude du plateau interieur, elle presente des conditions chaudes et temperees si typiques de l’Afrique du Sud et tellement appreciees des visiteurs etrangers.L’Afrique du Sud est reputee pour son soleil. C’est un pays relativement sec, avec une moyenne de precipitations d’environ 464mm (par rapport a une moyenne mondiale d’environ 860mm). Alors que la province de Western Cape reçoit des precipitations principalement en hiver, le reste du pays est plutot une region a precipitations estivales.Parallelement, les temperatures en Afrique du Sud ont tendance a etre moins elevee que dans d’autres pays se trouvant a la meme latitude, comme l’Australie, du fait d’une plus haute elevation par rapport au niveau de la mer.Sur le plateau interieur, l’altitude (Johannesburg se situe a 1694 metres) permet de maintenir des temperatures moyennes en dessous de 30°C. En hiver, pour cette meme raison, les temperatures nocturnes peuvent descendre en dessous de zero, et parfois encore plus bas dans certains endroits.Les regions cotieres d’Afrique du Sud sont donc les plus chaudes en hiver. Il existe cependant un net contraste entre les temperatures des cotes est et ouest du pays, a cause respectivement du courant chaud Agulhas et du courant froid Benguela qui longent les cotes.Nous trouvant dans l’hemisphere sud, nos saisons s’opposent a celles de l’Europe, de l’Amerique du Nord, alors oui, nous passons Noel a la plage.L’etePour une grande partie de l’Afrique du Sud, l’ete (de la mi-octobre a la mi-fevrier) se caracterise par un temps chaud et ensoleille, souvent accompagne d’orages dans l’apres midi qui disparaissent rapidement, laissant une odeur chaude de terre dans l’air typique de l’Afrique.La province de Western Cape, avec son climat mediterraneen, est une exception qui reçoit des precipitations en hiver.L’automneL’automne en Afrique du Sud (de mi-fevrier a avril) offre d’une certaine maniere le meilleur temps. Tres peu de precipitations tombent sur l’ensemble du pays, il fait chaud mais pas trop et on va vers le froid au fur et a mesure que la saison avance.Au Cap, l’automne est fantastique avec des journees d’ete ensoleillees et chaudes, des nuits douces dont profitent de nombreuses personnes pour frequenter les terrasses des cafes.L’hiverL’hiver en Afrique du Sud (de mai a juillet) se caracterise, dans les regions les plus hautes du plateau interieur par des journees seches, ensoleillees et vives et des nuits froides. C’est une bonne idee d’emmener des vetements chauds.La cote chaude et humide du KwaZulu-Natal, ainsi que le Lowveld (regions les plus basses) des provinces de Mpumalanga et Limpopo presente un magnifique temps hivernal avec des journees ensoleillees et chaudes et quasiment ni vent ni precipitation.La province de Western Cape reçoit des precipitations principalement en hiver, avec un certain nombre de journees au climat nuageux et pluvieux. Cependant, elles sont souvent entrecoupees de merveilleuses journees rivalisant avec l’ete anglais.Les hautes montagnes du Cap et le Drakensberg du KwaZulu-Natal reçoivent habituellement de la neige en hiver.Le printempsNulle part ailleurs en Afrique du Sud, vous ne trouverez un printemps (d’aout a mi-octobre) plus spectaculaire que dans les provinces du Cap. Ici l’hiver gris est vite oublie car des centaines de plantes de petite taille, voire insignifiante, recouvrent les plaines d’un tapis de fleurs multicolore.Le voyage pour aller voir les fleurs du Namaqualand dans les provinces de Western et Northern Cape est un pelerinage annuel pour de nombreux sud-africains.Quelle est la meilleure epoque de l’annee pour voyager ?Cela depend de ce que vous voulez faire. Les fleurs sont au meilleur de leur forme en aout et en septembre. La meilleure epoque pour les visites de reserves naturelles est la fin du printemps (septembre et octobre). Les baleines australes passent pres de nos cotes de mi juin a fin octobre.La plongee est possible dans tout le pays en dehors de l’ete (c.-a.-d. d’avril a septembre), tout comme le surf mais cela ne limite pas ces activites a ces saisons.La fin de l’hiver au Cap et le plein ete au KwaZulu-Nata (fin novembre a mi fevrier) sont les meilleures epoques pour le rafting en riviere. Les provinces de Mpumalanga et du Limpopo sont moins dependantes du temps.Les regions intermediaires (le printemps et l’automne) sont les meilleures pour la randonnee car l’ete peut etre tres chaud dans tout le pays. Dans le Drakensberg, les orages d’ete sont dangereux et la neige n’est pas une exception en hiver. Au Cap, les hivers sont humides et la randonnee peut etre penible.Si vous etes un passionne d’oiseaux, les migrateurs palearctiques arrivent vers novembre et les migrateurs internes a l’Afrique le font en general vers la mi octobre.Bien sur, si vous voulez vous prelasser sur les plages, le milieu de l’ete est la meilleure epoque, bien que tout le monde y sera aussi. Et, gros bonus, les plages du nord du KwaZulu-Natal sont chaudes et ensoleillees meme au milieu de l’hiver.SAinfo reporter, incluant des documents de l’Office du Tourisme d’Afrique du Sudlast_img read more

South Africa will host the tournament from 11 January to 1 February 2014.CHAN will feature African national teams made up entirely of players from the domestic leagues of the different countries.As hosts, South Africa qualified automatically for the event.

Using Compound Clips in DaVinci Resolve

first_imgYou can also choose whether to group the audio as Single Adaptive, which will cluster them together as its own group, or as Multiple Mono, which retains the audio stems for further editing, but it will make a sort of mixdown of them (see image below).You may choose to employ this method as an easier way to send stems, but it can be cumbersome when editing further. Here’s an example of choosing the Single Adaptive audio mode. All audio is “mixed” down to one channel:Here’s an example of choosing the Multiple Mono audio mode. All audio is kept as discrete channels that are the length of the compound clip, regardless of the original audio durations. Unlink clips before executing New Compound Clip to process audio clips separately from video. Right-click and uncheck Clip Link.Adjusting the Compound ClipTo modify the compound clip, right-click on it and select Open in Timeline. This will “zoom into” the compound clip to allow for further changes.The choice to utilize compound clips during the editing process may not be ideal for grading. DaVinci Resolve grades compounds as a single clip, but shots containing different setups will most likely not receive the same grade, and decomposing the clip may disrupt what you’ve created in the edit.To color each clip separately, step into the compound clip using Open in Timeline, switch to the Color page and grade as normal. To step back out of the compound, click on the name of your master sequence. Compound clips are a great way to group multiple clips together in DaVinci Resolve. Here’s how to use them.Similar to grouped clips and compound nodes used during the grading process, compound clips allow users to cluster clips together in the Edit and Color pages. DaVinci Resolve’s compound clip functionality is essentially a grouping feature that works much like those in other nonlinear editing programs. Here’s how to make the most of compound clips in DaVinci Resolve.Lasso or command-click the shots to be grouped together and right-click on them. At the top of the menu, choose New Compound Clip. Compound clips don’t necessarily need to be in sequence with one another.You’ll get a dialogue box that enables you to give a specific name to the compound clip. After clicking Create, the compound clip will show up in your Media Pool as a project element. After executing the New Compound Clip command, a dialogue box pops up, allowing you to name the compound clip and process the audio in one of two ways (see below). Decomposing Compound ClipsYou can get rid of a compound clip just as easily as making one. Select the compound and right-click on it, and choose Decompose in Place.See below for the result. The result places the innards of the compound clip where it once was in the timeline.Have any tips for creating compound clips? Share in the comments below. Frankly, you may find that both audio modes disturb the integrity of your audio edits, as frequently one performs different functions on audio than video. To retain your audio edits as they were before creating the compound clip, make sure your video clips are unlinked by selecting them, right-clicking, and deselect Clip Link.last_img read more
