Dr Proudman explains: “Osteoporosis is a bone disease that’s characterized by the loss of bone density. In other words, certain bones have decreased strength in comparison to other bones.“Osteopenia is the precursor to osteoporosis; this is when bone strength has been lost but it’s not to the degree that calls for a label of osteoporosis.”How does the decrease in bone density affect you? Dr Proudman says: “When bones are less dense, they aren’t as strong as they should be, which means they are more easily fractured.“In this case, regular activities of daily life such as walking, or a small trip up a curb, may actually cause a broken bone.”Letterkenny Chiropractic ClinicLetterkenny Chiropractic ClinicHow is Osteoporosis diagnosed?Dr Proudman said: “The main diagnostic tool is called a dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA scan) and it estimates the density/strength of the bone and risk of fracture.“The screening procedure is non-invasive, accurate and only takes 20 minutes. After the scan the results will be explained to you, as well as offering any advice, if needed.”The Letterkenny Chiropractic Clinic open day on 30th March 2019 is a fantastic opportunity to have a bone density scan and spinal check at a very reasonable price.To book your appointment, call: 0749125207 nowFor more visit www.letterkennychiropractic.comLetterkenny Chiropractic, GlencarOsteoporosis scans on offer at LK Chiropractic open day was last modified: March 24th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:body densityletterkenny chiropracticosteoporosisspinal check
Media Composer First is a free and “limited” version of the industry-standard NLE, but is it worth a download?Top image via Avid.Avid has released the free version of the Hollywood film- and television-standard non-linear editor: Media Composer. With Media Composer First, you have free access to use a light version of this powerful tool.Avid announced Media Composer First back in 2015, and it is just now seeing its release. Avid spent the past two years tuning the features they would be willing to make available in a free version of their NLE.Perhaps it was the growing competition with younger editors learning on Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro, or even industry competition with Blackmagic’s release of a free version of DaVinci Resolve (which now includes its own NLE), but Avid saw it fit to make their tools more accessible to novice users.What Is Avid Media Composer First?Image via Avid.Avid Media Composer First (properly known as Media Composer | First) is the free, entry-level version of Avid’s flagship Media Composer NLE. It’s the non-linear editor standard for countless blockbuster film productions and major television series.Whereas Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro have dominated the indie and online video markets, Premiere Pro is just now inching its way into feature production. Neither program comes close to the massive industry user base Avid has always maintained.Many claim that this is just a stripped down version of Media Composer, but that is not a hinderance. This is still a very powerful program — and at no cost it’s foolish to immediately downplay Media Composer First. This is a serious tool that is now accessible to everyone.How to Download Avid Media Composer FirstThe process of downloading Media Composer First is easy, but there are a lot of steps to start the download.Visit the Media Composer First website.Create an Avid Master Account.Verify your email address.Fill out your name and physical address.Take a survey about yourself and how you will use Media Composer First.Download Avid Media Composer First.Install and restart your machine.Media Composer First is available for Mac and PC. On the download page, you will also be prompted with some links to “Get Started Fast” video tutorials, a quick start guide, the community forums, and your Avid Master Account where you can access downloads and updates.Avid Media Composer First FeaturesThere are positives and negatives to Avid Media Composer First, if you can even really call them negatives considering this is a free program.While this is touted as a stripped-down version of Media Composer, it really isn’t. Most of the tools are still there, you just don’t have access to unlimited workflow tools.Image via Avid.Here are some Media Composer First limitations:Maximum of 4 video tracksMaximum of 8 audio tracksExport in only Quicktime Movie H.264, DNxHD, PCM, WAV (Max 1080p at 59.94fps)Graphics export limited to TIFF and JPEGMaximum of 5 bins per projectRequires you to log in to Avid Application Manager before launchCannot open existing Media Composer (full version) projectsMedia Composer First projects also cannot be opened in Media Composer Other than those limitations, just about every other tool and option is still available. From trimming clips to color grading, you have access to just about anything you’d need to cut and export an indie-sized project.Image via Avid.Media Composer First Available Tools and Settings:Work with 4K, HD, and SD footageList of Available Formats Multiple Project SpecsSD PAL, SD NTSC, 720, 108023.978p, 24p, 25i, 30i/p, 50i/p, 59.94i/pMono, dual mono, stereo audio Color CorrectionCC EffectPredefined CC EffectsHSL ControlsHue OffsetsLuma Range Video EffectsLimited core setSource Side Motion EffectsTimeWarpStabilize Multicam editing601/709 color spacesAudio mixingAudio duckingClassic Title toolsAVX and AAX plugins from the Avid Marketplace availableSocial media exports: Facebook, YouTube, VimeoMy Review of Editing on Media Composer FirstI’ll go ahead and issue this disclaimer: I haven’t personally cut on Media Composer in over a decade. I first learned how to edit on the likes of Windows Movie Maker and iMovie as a kid. I didn’t cut on Avid until college, but at the same time, I purchased my own student license for Final Cut Studio 2 and was an FCP7 editor pretty much until I wrote “It’s Time to Stop Editing in Final Cut Pro 7” in 2015. These days, I hop between Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve, depending on the project. Very rarely do I even find myself opening FCPX anymore.A lot has changed in that time, but from the looks of the interface, Avid really hasn’t changed all that much. That’s been the biggest plus and minus for the program. Avid is built to support major motion pictures and television series that are rarely cutting on the latest tech. Studios have relied on the ability to constantly edit projects without ever needing to update their hardware or software, which could risk a delay of production.On a mid-2015 MacBook Pro, Media Composer First lagged to the point that I infuriatingly just had to walk away to write down my notes for this piece. You’re going to have to adjust some settings to fine tune Media Composer First to best work on your individual machine.As most editors should admit, I was forced to Google my issues to find any type of resolution. Much like my early days ending up on sites and blogs like this very one, the Avid forums, or CreativeCow, I once again found myself digging through the same forums and comments sections of other blogs. Many of the issues I had with the current version of Media Composer First are the same issues people have been running into for years with the regular version of Media Composer.At launch, you are immediately prompted to log into the Avid Application Manager. This is nothing new, as editors have always searched for ways to turn off this “helper” program. It should be noted that as long as you are logged in, you can still cut in Media Composer First if you are offline.Right away, you’ll notice that if you were listening to music on your headphones, you’ll be blasted with audio right at launch. If you go in between programs, you’ll hear the audio levels constantly change. This is something I fixed with another visit back to Creative Cow.Where other NLEs have made major strides in working faster on limited machines, like laptops, Avid Media Composer puts my computer into a stranglehold and never really lets go. I tried editing a 4K clip, and my computer just couldn’t handle the workload. I ended up having to force quit Media Composer First and try again.Despite the issues I had in the beginning, the issues were rather minor once you are able to actively start cutting. You may also benefit from watching a few of the beginner tutorials that Avid provides on their site.It can’t be said enough: this is a free tool and has the ability to edit serious projects. It’s just going to be on the user to be willing to take the time to learn the quirks of Avid — something I just didn’t have the time to do for this review.Final ThoughtsImage via Avid.I’m curious as to whom Media Composer First is really for. It’s a great option for current Premiere and FCPX editors to at least learn Media Composer, should they get called onto a major production job. For any non-editor just running a Google search for “How to I edit a video,” this is going to be overkill.If you find yourself low on cash and at risk of losing your Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, you may be tempted to switch over to Avid Media Composer First, but you also have the option to download DaVinci Resolve 14 — also free. Blackmagic is currently touting the fast speeds Resolve 14 offers on machines like laptops. You also aren’t restricted to limited audio and video tracks, so you could really go crazy with sound design in DaVinci Resolve.I will leave it with this. I’m glad that Avid is making the move to appeal to younger editors, even though it took two years for this program to come together. Avid is a few steps behind, but it’s still an actively used program worth investing some time in. Having a basic understanding of Media Composer will never hurt you. It’s worth the time to download and at least explore Media Composer First.What are your thoughts on Media Composer First? Let us know in the comments.

Indian Super League ISL 2017: Antonio Habas’ FC Pune City stint set to end prematurely? Last updated 2 years ago 06:45 8/30/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) ISL Indian Super League Pune City The Rajesh Wadhawan co-owned franchise are expected to end their association with coach Antonio Habas ahead of the new season.. In a surprising turn of events, FC Pune City are expected to part ways with their head coach Antonio Habas ahead of the Indian Super League (ISL) season which begins in November, Goal can confirm.The team management were allegedly forced to consider such a move after differences arose between the Spanish coach and the officials regarding a variety of issues. When Goal contacted the Spanish coach, he opted not to divulge the details behind the development while FC Pune City CEO Gaurav Modwel refused to comment on the matter at all.

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina FC Pune City have invested heavily in their squad this season, bringing in the likes of 2016 ISL Golden Boot winner Marcelinho, Uruguayan striker Emiliano Alfaro and former Delhi Dynamos midfielder Marcos Tebar. But following the disagreements over Antonio Habas’ demands, the team have opted to change their plans at short notice and are expected to find another coach in a very short time. The 60-year-old coach, who led ATK to the title in the inaugural Indian Super League season in 2014, took charge FC Pune City in 2016 when he couldn’t lead the team to the semifinals. However, it seemed as if the Stallions were gunning for at least a top-four finish, going by their recruitments this season but have seen a spanner thrown in the works with this development. Pointedly, FC Pune City’s last few press releases on new player recruitments have not included any comments from Antonio Habas while their earlier press releases did have quotes from the Spanish coach. In fact, the last few statements from the club have no mention of the coach at all.
A Halifax-area man accused of murder was allegedly one of the kingpins of a Colombian drug cartel before he was arrested on a Venezuelan beach and extradited back to Canada, officials in South America say.The Office of the Attorney General of Colombia said in a press release Wednesday that Steven Douglas Skinner, a former MMA fighter awaiting trial on second-degree murder, organized a drug trafficking network called Morfhox with Daniel “El Loco” Barrera.The attorney general said along with his accomplice — who he allegedly later killed before fleeing to neighbouring Venezuela — Skinner recruited drug mules to smuggle cocaine to Canada, the United States and EuropeThe alleged narcos targeted seniors, mothers and Venezuelans to illegally transport drugs by swallowing latex capsules filled with liquid cocaine.They bought the drug mules passports, airline tickets and clothing as well as paid for expenses abroad, promising a bonus payment when they returned to Colombia, the attorney general said.Skinner was arrested by Venezuelan law enforcement on Margarita Island in 2016, and was extradited to Canada the following year to face second-degree murder charges in the death of Stacey Adams in Nova Scotia.A photo released by Venezuelan authorities after his arrest showed the one-time fugitive in colourful swim trunks, with tattoos on both arms and his bare chest covered in sand.Skinner, who fought as a light-heavyweight at 205 pounds, had a 3-2 professional record, according to mixed martial arts website Sherdog.com.Police had issued an international warrant for Skinner’s arrest shortly after Adams was found dead in Lake Echo in April 2011.The RCMP worked with Venezuelan authorities for more than a year before Skinner was arrested.Colombian officials said the four-year investigation into the liquid cocaine smuggling cartel led to 27 arrests, including eight people responsible for the cartel’s logistics, and the confiscation of 46 properties, 12 vehicles and four commercial establishments.The bust also yielded cash, firearms, ammunition and several emeralds, the prosecutor’s office said.
