G+ #Read of the Day: The Daguerreotype - The daguerreotype, an early form of photograph, was invented by Louis Daguerre in the early 19th c.
The first photograph (1826) - Joseph Niepce, a French inventor and pioneer in photography, is generally credited with producing the first photograph. Easy Peasy Fact:Following Niepcea€™s experiments, in 1829 Louis Daguerre stepped up to make some improvements on a novel idea.

Very old portrait of three men identified as (from left to right) Henry, George, and Stephen Childs, November 25, 1842. In 1840, Hippolyte Bayard, a pioneer of early photography, created an image called Self-Portrait as a Drowned Man. 10 Times History Was Captured in Living ColorColor photographs go back to before you might think.
Public speaking is like a painting of your thoughts where your voice is the brush and your thoughts are the colors. Your college day is the biggest event that happens and there will be many students working day and night to make that event successful. I often see college chaps cribbing “my college does not have any facility, none of the events happen and we do not have any chance to improve our communication skills”.
There is a wrong notion among many that only a person who speaks good English has good communication skills. These are the 8 tips which can lead you to the path of acquiring great communication skills in college. If this article helped you, do not forget to share it with your family and friends on your social networks. Thought is more powerful than thunder, every great thing ever done by man on this earth emerged from a single thought. The following article is kindly shared by Ryan Bowie, a Buteyko Practitioner in Northern California. When the incessant stream of thoughts finally does give in it often results in sloth, torpor and sleepiness. These 5 negative mental states: sensual desire, ill-will, sloth and torpor, restlessness and worry, and doubt make up what is called the Five Hindrances in Buddhist meditation (but are relevant for any meditation).
It can be argued that human nature hasn’t changed in any fundamental way, as there were wars, atrocities, injustices, and exploitation then as there is now. In short, people in ancient times lived in a time when things moved slowly, the pace of life was determined not by the clock but by the sun and seasons, and advances in technology didn’t occur over the course of months but rather centuries. Ultimately breath control is equivalent to mind control, and by developing this skill, it is possible to begin to have influence over the mind that for many of us was never possible, even after many years of dedicated meditation. Buteyko Clinic USA offers unique breathing rehabilitation programs that result in long term drug free control over asthma, allergies, COPD, rhinitis, chronic cough, snoring, sleep apnea, anxiety, panic, chronic hyperventilation syndrome and other chronic conditions.

Talbot was active from the mid-1830s, and sits alongside Louis Daguerre as one of the fathers of the medium. Niepcea€™s photograph shows a view from the Window at Le Gras, and it only took eight hours of exposure time!The history of photography has roots in remote antiquity with the discovery of the principle of the camera obscura and the observation that some substances are visibly altered by exposure to light.
Again employing the use of solvents and metal plates as a canvas, Daguerre utilized a combination of silver and iodine to make a surface more sensitive to light, thereby taking less time to develop. Half of the Limburg province of Belgium is added to the Netherlands, giving rise to a Belgian Limburg and Dutch Limburg (the latter being from September 5 joined to the German Confederation).June 3 a€“ Destruction of opium at Humen begins, casus belli for Britain to open the 3-year First Opium War against Qing dynasty China. Bayard had just perfected the process of printing on to paper, which would come to define photography in the following century, but the French government had decided to invest instead in the daguerrotype, a process invented by his rival, Louis Daguerre.
Self-confidence and communication skills go hand in hand and they help each other at every point of time. Imagine you are one of them who worked hard for the event and when you tell this in your job interview that you worked hard to make the event successful, it adds a great value to you and your profile. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1999, Ryan moved to England where he trained as a Buddhist monk for 8 years in the Theravada tradition at Chithurst Monastery. In 2008, upon leaving the monastic life, Ryan began to train as Buteyko Practitioner.  He has taught students in the UK, Europe, and America. In addition, I have watched students of meditation struggle with states of boredom in meditation, which often leads to a mind that drifts here and there, lost in fantasy, and craving pleasures, like food, sex, and entertainment (this is especially the case during prolonged meditation retreats). The difficulty in dealing with these five states is that they are of the mind, and the mind is fast, elusive, and hard to grasp. Our lifestyles often lack exercise and movement, lack connection with nature and community, and require us to spend huge amounts of time lost in mental abstractions, bound by time, and living in the shadows of seemingly insurmountable problems such as environmental degradation, social injustice, terrorism, resource depletion, etc, etc.
Because the mind and breath are so intimately linked (just watch your breathing the next time you are angry or excited if you doubt this), it is possible to approach the mind from another angle. She has explored multicultural approaches that raise consciousness in the body, resulting in a healing of body, mind and Spirit. Park is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in transpersonal psychology and neurotherapy. Other interests include personal empowerment, the interface between psychology and spirituality, drug additions, and the use of visual and auditory media for psychological change. Her devotion to Earth is expressed through her spiritual practice, in the retreats, pilgrimages, and workshops that she facilitates, in her writing, photography, and work with Woodstock Land Conservancy. He is an ordained Soto Zen Buddhist priest in the lineage of Kobun Chino-roshi and was the Director of Chino-roshi’s temple, Jikoji, for 12 years.
Prior to her ordination by the International Church of Ageless Wisdom, an interfaith church without walls, she was a journalist. In the last three decades she has received initiations into traditions from around the world. She continues to walk a prayer of peace, making offerings to sacred sites of our Mother Earth and cultivating alliances among all beings. Through the divine mother energy and the ancient African oracle she was chosen and given the titled positions  Crown of the Mother, and a YeyeOsun (Mother).

Both have enjoyed traveling to  various waterways to hold traditional water ceremonies and share earth honoring teachings with various nations and peoples across the world. She shares a private practice in Atlanta, with her husband Charles, helping adults who were traumatized as children. Whitfield MD is a pioneer in trauma recovery, including the way we remember childhood and other trauma and abuse.
Though he is most famous for his contributions to photography, he was also an accomplished painter and a developer of the diorama theatre. As far as is known, nobody thought of bringing these two phenomena together to capture camera images in permanent form until around 1800, when Thomas Wedgwood made the first reliably documented although unsuccessful attempt.
It didna€™t take long for others to seize the new technology and create daguerreotypes of New York City street scenes. Daguerreotypes are sharply defined, highly reflective, one-of-a-kind photographs on silver-coated copper plates, usually packaged behind glass and kept in protective cases.
You just have to give space to them in your life and you can see them helping each other and improve. A hesitant person cannot really achieve anything till he heats the hesitation and melts it down to confidence. For example we feel our college rules are not good and a set of changes can make it better. The challenge is to know how to use these resources of yours which will help you for the life time. Be it any event in the college, your participation in the event is the door to be a pro in that event and your coordination to that event is the door to earn leadership attitudes. In my college, I and my friends started a forum where we conducted workshops to practice presentations, group discussions, etc. Yes, for a corporate company to hire you in India you got to have good communication skills in English.
Given his background in the monasticism, Ryan has a special interest in teaching the method to those interested in enhancing their meditation and yoga practices.
And of course there is the mind that wonders in the past and future, rehashing old stories of wrongs and injustices, falling into ill-will and resentment. We can be transported from one world to another in less than a second, sometimes not even realizing we are there until minutes later.
Never before in human history have people been exposed to so much sensory input, so many different and often contradictory ideas, so many pressures and demands relentlessly pursuing us. Rather than take it on directly, it is possible to gain leverage over the mind through training the breath. She is one of the founders of Kayumari, a spiritual healing community, located in locations in North America, Europe and Brazil. As a founding member of Kayumari, a global spiritual village, Darlene travels internationally to support community grown by sharing of resources, knowledge and prayer dedicated to the next 7 generations. She made a leap from the corporate world of the entertainment industry after realizing she had a strong desire to involve herself in work that was meaningful and transformational. Her spiritual and psychological insights provide a balanced approach to integrating one’s life. Russell, together with his wife, Jyoti, teaches seminars and workshops on transformational process to an international community of professionals. Her seminars as well as her individual in-depth life attunements emphasize the relevancy of universal spiritual principles to everyday life and the inter-dynamics of mind, body, emotions and spirit. For twenty-plus years, Gloria has taught all over North America and in many other countries. She spent one year in Northern California after living and serving for 7 years at Red Lake Nation Reservation in Northern Minnesota. Alena is certified through the University of Montana as a National Native Trauma Therapist, and studied at Leech Lake College, which is Ojibwa, to learn how to be a therapist from that perspective. This journey has led her to the center of her Star origins in her ancestral Jewish and Moravian lineage. She sings and dances to celebrate the many faces of the divine, offering ceremonial ways of transmutation and Belonging.
Bob resides in the Sierra foothills with his wife, Ann Rosencranz and son Riley, as a ranch hand, farmer and ritualist of the Native American Church.

A daguerreotype, produced on a silver-plated copper sheet, produces a mirror image photograph of the exposed scene. The Government, which has been only too generous to Monsieur Daguerre, has said it can do nothing for Monsieur Bayard, and the poor wretch has drowned himself. In today’s cut-throat competition, communication skills are one of the main causes for success. I pushed myself a lot to enroll for debate competition, I was hesitant however I made up my mind to participate. You will learn to be in a team and more importantly you will learn to communicate within your group and make things happen. Without stopping it here, discuss with your friends and analyze the pros and cons of your thoughts.
This was a great help for many, this became a rehearsal place for your big event, the interview. A man can be a best speaker and communicator if he is speaking in the language in which he is thinking.
With a still mind and calm body one is then able to gain insight into the nature of reality.Similarly, in the practice of pranayama, the yogi seeks to gain control over the mind by developing control of the breath. All of this over time can lead to a sense of doubt and uncertainty about meditation, what one is actually trying to do and if it is even possible to train the mind. And yet when we read accounts of monks and yogis in the ancient religious texts it sounds as if they had a different mind altogether or couldn’t possibly have had to deal with what we are up against in modern society. The advantage of the breath is that it is much more tangible than the mind- one can access it in a way that is very difficult with the mind. She is the Spiritual Director of the Center for Sacred Studies, a 501(c)3 dedicated to sustaining ways of life based on collaboration and reciprocity with the Earth and all Her beings. Wendy works as a Spiritual Counselor, Body and Energy Worker as well as a mentor for students in the Maitri Breathwork Certification Program and the Ministry Training Program.
Mary has been a member of the Kayumari community since 2004, attended Stargate Mystery School, and completed the training to become certified as a Maitri Breathwork Facitator. Her extensive study of indigenous healing and spiritual practices combined with her training in Jungian and psychological approaches to mental health have inspired a variety of projects. As the former research coordinator for the Spiritual Emergence Network, founded by Stan and Christina Grof, Russell has taught professionals in Europe, South America, and the United States in the diagnosis, treatment, and transformative potential of spiritual emergence phenomena. He is active in Native American ceremonial ways and has been integrating earth-based forms of worship and prayer with Zen meditation since 1970. She has conducted seminars and given lectures for such diverse groups as psychotherapists, actors and doctors, in venues ranging from large conferences to colleges, churches, hospitals and specialized groups. In 2005 a shooting happened at the High School where ten lives were taken, the second worst shooting in the United States outside of Columbine. Ann serves as a ceremonial guide for people in life transitions: birth, coming of age, marriage, and death.
Omi is an author  of several books including her latest “Beautiful Waters”, and an  award winner of the prestigious Prince’s Trust. They are also the co-founders of WaterSongline and part of the co-founding team of UNICEF’s GIWA (Global Interfaith WASH Alliance). It was only in the late 1970s that she became an initiate and priestess of the Lucumi religion. Through this new venture they are not only able to define and develop the conscious culture that has resulted in the amazing work environment in the restaurants, but are able to share their unique and forward thinking approach to life with the world.
Chemistry student Robert Cornelius was so fascinated by the chemical process involved in Daguerrea€™s work that he sought to make some improvements himself.
You will learn how to analyze a situation and speak accordingly which is a great skill of communication.

Also, having a good relationship with the college attenders will help you in so many ways; I know I need not tell you this. If you want to learn good communication skills in English, think in English and talk in English, you get into trouble when you think in your mother tongue and talk in English. In both meditation and pranayama, the key insight is the profoundly intimate relationship between the mind and breath, and the possibility to control one by controlling the other.In my years as a Buddhist monk I have seen both lay practitioners and monastics spend years struggling with an agitated and defiant mind that resists all attempts at developing calmness. By learning to calm and ultimately change the way that we breathe, it is possible to gradually change our habitual thought patterns and ways of seeing the world and life.
Wendy is dedicated to spiritual and personal growth; committed to supporting people going deeper within themselves. Her involvement with CSS and its educational programs allows her to feel aligned with the mission to protect indigenous and earth-based ways of prayer.
Alena is an art therapist with a psychoanalytic approach; she is also a writer, artist, and poet and was trained as a Medicine Woman by traditional Ojibwa women and by her Slovakian Grandmother.
For several decades she has joined with her beloved husband Bob growing their spiritual prayer family.
Both Omi and Derrick’s work have been recognized by the United Nations,  which Omi attended in September 2014. Eternal Presence workshops focus on a variety of topics including: Sacred Commerce (Business as a Path to Awakening), Community Building, tools for enacting a culture of sharing, Kindred Spirits, the Abounding River Workshop and Coaching with the Masters. It was commercially introduced in 1839, a date generally accepted as the birth year of practical photography.The metal-based daguerreotype process soon had some competition from the paper-based calotype negative and salt print processes invented by Henry Fox Talbot. And in 1839 Cornelius shot a self-portrait daguerrotype that some historians believe was the first modern photograph of a man ever produced. For over two weeks in the summer of 2002, scientists and conservators at this prestigious facility subjected the artifact, its frame, and support materials to extensive and rigorous non-destructive testing.
I see a lot of college students wanting to improve their communication skills to get their dream job. This habit of discussing ideas and analyzing the pros and cons helps you in not being biased which is a vital characteristic of a leader. Many people made use of our forum and could dramatically improve their skills including me. As a devotee of the Mother Waters, Ann birthed the WaterSongline with Omileye Yeyeochun and sits on the Mothers of the Water Council. Omileye has recently collaborated with the UN on their international Post Sustainable water agenda, and has been invited to be part of the UN Interfaith WASH Alliance.
When they are not on the road speaking or teaching, Matthew and Terces live on their “Be Love” Organic Farm where they grow food for their 6 restaurants. The result was a very complete scientific and technical analysis of the object, which in turn provided better criteria for its secure and permanent case design and presentation in the lobby of the newly-renovated Harry Ransom Center.The plate also received extensive attention from the photographic technicians at the Institute, who spent a day and a half with the original heliograph in their photographic studios in order to record photographically and digitally all aspects of the plate. I also hear this phrase very often, “that guy can speak good English and that is why he got placed easily”. I see a lot of people regret that they couldn’t make use of their college life to sharpen their skills. The object was documented under all manner of scientific lights, including infrared and ultraviolet spectra. Well, as I said before, self-confidence and communication skills help each other at every point of time.
Both he and Omi have been featured in such publications as: Charlotte Observer, Natural Awakening, Lancaster News, and Sunday Times Style Magazine (Omi appeared in).
Long before the first photographs were made, Chinese philosopher Mo Ti and Greek mathematicians Aristotle and Euclid described a pinhole camera in the 5th and 4th centuries BCE. In the 6th century CE, Byzantine mathematician Anthemius of Tralles used a type of camera obscura in his experimentsIbn al-Haytham (Alhazen) (965 in Basra a€“ c. Wilhelm Homberg described how light darkened some chemicals (photochemical effect) in 1694. The novel Giphantie (by the French Tiphaigne de la Roche, 1729a€“74) described what could be interpreted as photography.Around the year 1800, Thomas Wedgwood made the first known attempt to capture the image in a camera obscura by means of a light-sensitive substance. As with the bitumen process, the result appeared as a positive when it was suitably lit and viewed.
A strong hot solution of common salt served to stabilize or fix the image by removing the remaining silver iodide. On 7 January 1839, this first complete practical photographic process was announced at a meeting of the French Academy of Sciences, and the news quickly spread. At first, all details of the process were withheld and specimens were shown only at Daguerre's studio, under his close supervision, to Academy members and other distinguished guests. Paper with a coating of silver iodide was exposed in the camera and developed into a translucent negative image. Unlike a daguerreotype, which could only be copied by rephotographing it with a camera, a calotype negative could be used to make a large number of positive prints by simple contact printing.
The calotype had yet another distinction compared to other early photographic processes, in that the finished product lacked fine clarity due to its translucent paper negative. This was seen as a positive attribute for portraits because it softened the appearance of the human face.
Talbot patented this process,[20] which greatly limited its adoption, and spent many years pressing lawsuits against alleged infringers. He attempted to enforce a very broad interpretation of his patent, earning himself the ill will of photographers who were using the related glass-based processes later introduced by other inventors, but he was eventually defeated. Nonetheless, Talbot's developed-out silver halide negative process is the basic technology used by chemical film cameras today. Hippolyte Bayard had also developed a method of photography but delayed announcing it, and so was not recognized as its inventor.In 1839, John Herschel made the first glass negative, but his process was difficult to reproduce. The new formula was sold by the Platinotype Company in London as Sulpho-Pyrogallol Developer.Nineteenth-century experimentation with photographic processes frequently became proprietary.
This adaptation influenced the design of cameras for decades and is still found in use today in some professional cameras.
Petersburg, Russia studio Levitsky would first propose the idea to artificially light subjects in a studio setting using electric lighting along with daylight. In 1884 George Eastman, of Rochester, New York, developed dry gel on paper, or film, to replace the photographic plate so that a photographer no longer needed to carry boxes of plates and toxic chemicals around.
Now anyone could take a photograph and leave the complex parts of the process to others, and photography became available for the mass-market in 1901 with the introduction of the Kodak Brownie.A practical means of color photography was sought from the very beginning. Results were demonstrated by Edmond Becquerel as early as 1848, but exposures lasting for hours or days were required and the captured colors were so light-sensitive they would only bear very brief inspection in dim light.The first durable color photograph was a set of three black-and-white photographs taken through red, green and blue color filters and shown superimposed by using three projectors with similar filters. It was taken by Thomas Sutton in 1861 for use in a lecture by the Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell, who had proposed the method in 1855.[27] The photographic emulsions then in use were insensitive to most of the spectrum, so the result was very imperfect and the demonstration was soon forgotten.
Maxwell's method is now most widely known through the early 20th century work of Sergei Prokudin-Gorskii. Included were methods for viewing a set of three color-filtered black-and-white photographs in color without having to project them, and for using them to make full-color prints on paper.[28]The first widely used method of color photography was the Autochrome plate, commercially introduced in 1907. If the individual filter elements were small enough, the three primary colors would blend together in the eye and produce the same additive color synthesis as the filtered projection of three separate photographs. Autochrome plates had an integral mosaic filter layer composed of millions of dyed potato starch grains.
Reversal processing was used to develop each plate into a transparent positive that could be viewed directly or projected with an ordinary projector. The mosaic filter layer absorbed about 90 percent of the light passing through, so a long exposure was required and a bright projection or viewing light was desirable. Competing screen plate products soon appeared and film-based versions were eventually made.
A complex processing operation produced complementary cyan, magenta and yellow dye images in those layers, resulting in a subtractive color image. Kirsch at the National Institute of Standards and Technology developed a binary digital version of an existing technology, the wirephoto drum scanner, so that alphanumeric characters, diagrams, photographs and other graphics could be transferred into digital computer memory.
The lab was working on the Picturephone and on the development of semiconductor bubble memory.
The essence of the design was the ability to transfer charge along the surface of a semiconductor. Michael Tompsett from Bell Labs however, who discovered that the CCD could be used as an imaging sensor.
