Alleged killer of wife and son slapped with murder charge

first_imgCrane double murderThe man, who allegedly earlier this month hacked his wife and two-year-old son to death was on Monday charged with murder and taken to the Vreed-en-Hoop Magistrates’ Court.Suresh Ganesh called Tarzan, 28, was not required to plead to the indictable charge, when it was read to him by Magistrate Christel Lambert.It is alleged that on 1 July, 2016 at Lot 57 Back Street, Best/Crane Village, West Coast Demerara, he murdered his wife Vanessa Sookram, 32, and their son Samuel Ganesh.Also on the same day, the man attempted to kill his mother by chopping her to the hand.The Prosecution is contending that on the day in question, at about 04:30h, Ganesh called to his mother requesting a cup of tea and bread.

PSG win again but tensions simmer between Neymar, Cavani

first_imgHaving already scored three times from the spot this season, Edinson Cavani assumed the responsibility would once again be his.Neymar tried to get the ball from the Uruguayan but it was Cavani who eventually took it. And his effort was brilliantly saved, Anthony Lopes tipping the ball onto the bar.“The penalties are taken by a couple of players, one is Cavani and the other is Neymar. There needs to be a gentleman’s agreement on the pitch to decide who takes the penalties,” coach Unai Emery admitted later.“We will sort things out internally for the next time, because I think they are both capable of taking them, and I want the two of them to mix up who takes them.”Those comments, and the fact Cavani was unsuccessful from the spot, suggests Neymar will get his chance in future.The Brazilian had previously tried and failed to grab the ball from Cavani when a penalty was awarded in the 3-0 win over Saint-Etienne last month. Cavani scored that time.Earlier in Sunday’s game, the duo disagreed over who should take a free-kick with the match still goalless. Dani Alves intervened to give his compatriot the ball on that occasion, and Neymar’s strike was saved.“They are two great players. They want to score goals. There are no problems between them, everything is fine,” insisted PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe.Most coaches would envy the embarrassment of riches at Emery’s disposal.The ‘MCN’ front line of Mbappe, Cavani and Neymar has cost the capital club 466 million euros ($557 million, £411 million) but now the coach has to somehow keep them all happy.Cavani scored a remarkable 49 goals in all competitions last season and already has nine this season — it would have been 10 had the opener against Lyon not been credited as a Marcelo own goal.But Cavani, who previously lived in the shadow of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has seen PSG commit the two biggest transfer fees in history to sign Neymar and Mbappe.And 222 million-euro man Neymar has come to Paris to be the main man after spending four years in Lionel Messi’s shadow at Barcelona.“This victory has exposed tensions between Neymar and Cavani,” said sports daily L’Equipe on its front page on Monday.The ‘MCN’ scored eight goals between them in their first two matches together against Metz (5-1) and Celtic (5-0), but Sunday was less encouraging.Cavani saw very little of the ball, while Neymar and Mbappe were relatively subdued, even if they combined to force PSG’s second on the night, a Jeremy Morel own goal.Julian Draxler, a 40 million-euro signing from Wolfsburg in January, was also shoehorned into the team on Sunday but overloading the side with attacking stars is to the detriment of the overall balance.PSG have not slipped up yet, but Sunday’s game showed that Emery has plenty on his plate.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Paris Saint-Germain’s forwards Edinson Cavani (L) and Neymar eye the ball during a French Ligue 1 football match at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris on September 17, 2017 © AFP / FRANCK FIFEPARIS, France, Sep 18 – Paris Saint-Germain kept their perfect start to the season going on Sunday, but the 2-0 win over Lyon also laid bare certain tensions in their all-star front line.PSG were leading 1-0 at the Parc des Princes when they won a penalty with 10 minutes remaining for a foul on Kylian Mbappe, making his home debut.last_img read more

Production Tip: 5 Simple Ways to Fix Out-of-Focus Footage

first_imgFollow these simple post-production tips to help save those out-of-focus (and soft-focus) shots in your film and video projects.Cover image by View Apart.Whether your focus slipped while shooting, or another videographer handed you some soft-focus footage to deal with, working with out-of-focus footage can be a post-production nightmare. However, if your footage isn’t too far gone, you do have some tools at your disposal. Let’s take a look at five tips for fixing out-of-focus or soft-focus footage.Set Back to NeutralOut-of-focus with contrast and saturation.Out-of-focus set back to neutral.The first step in working with your out-of-focus footage is to get your palette ready for tinkering. As you’ll see below, you’re going to want to add sharper lines and contrasts, but to clean your slate, removing contrast and pushing closer to neutral will help you better evaluate and work with your footage. If you have already overlaid any effects or corrections, take them off until after you’ve saved as much of your footage as possible.Sharpen EffectExample of footage at 50% “sharpen.”Example of footage at 100% “sharpen.”It may seem simple, but the greatest tool at your disposal in Premiere Pro is the “Sharpen” effect. Similar to what you might have seen using Instagram, sharpening your image will degrade your footage but make your lines tighter and help the image pop. Sometimes even a 10% increase can pull some soft-focus shots clearly into focus. For your more out-of-focus shots, see how far you can push the effect without deteriorating your footage too much. Depending on what you plan to do with your finished product, you can check some sample exports to see how the footage will look on YouTube or Vimeo.Unsharp Mask FilterIn this tutorial by Casey Faris, you can see how to use the “unsharp mask” tool in Adobe After Effects (note: you can use this tool in Premiere Pro, too) to work without segments or parts of your footage that might be out-of-focus without adding the blanket Premiere Pro sharpen effect to your whole shot. This is particularly helpful for giving your soft-focus footage a boost by simply correcting some of the aberrations around the edges — or to help draw attention to more information in the frame.Make Black and WhiteExample of image set to black and white.While this is cheating a bit, one option to consider when all else fails is to make your footage black and white. Depending on where your shot stands in your project, you may consider making the whole video black-and-white as a stylistic choice. The black-and-white format will give you some more leeway in defining those edges and lines to get your footage a little more in-focus.Use DaVinci ResolveIf you’re looking for even more control, dropping your footage (or your whole edit) into DaVinci Resolve may be your best bet to finely tune all elements of your focus and eventual color correction. In this great article by Lewis McGregor, you can learn some powerful techniques in Resolve using a circular power window to work on things like eyes and faces — and adjusting radius, H/V ratio, and scaling settings.For more editing tips and tricks, check out some of these resources below too!Video Tutorial: Better, Faster, Stronger Editing TipsLearning How to Edit While You ShootVideo Editing Tips and Tricks from Oscar-Nominated Editor Joe WalkerEditing Tips: 8 Ways You Can Save a Shot in Post-ProductionWhy You Should Master the Under-Appreciated Art of a Good Pre-Editlast_img read more
