Dual Image - Nora Roberts

Fairly light story with two people dealing with image and reality.

Booth DeWitt has written a screenplay that's pretty much his ex-wife, their relationship and how it ended. Ariel Kirkwood is a soap opera star who jumps at the opportunity to play the role of his wife. When Booth starts having feelings about Ariel he dismisses it as how much she resembles his ex-wife but he can't get her out of his mind. Ariel wants fun and she finds herself attracted to Booth, but if he can't let the past go she is determined to make the most of the situation and make a great movie.

LIght-hearted and fun read.

 

Now if I had been smart I would have nominated Nora Roberts as my wildcard author and eliminated a few squares but ah well.

A Despicable and Yet Fun Read Graphic Violent Comic Tradepaperback
Body Bags Volume 1: Fathers Day - Jason Pearson

The 90s was an experimental comic scene. It was bold, brave and daring even. When Dark Horse Comics under the imprint Blanc Noir release Body Bags, written and illustrated by Jason Pearson, I had no idea what to expect but filled with graphic violence, a simple yet action-packed sequences and probably one of the most despicable immoral tale of revenge involving a minor. The thing about this comic is... its an enjoyable good read.

 

Clownface had enough when a body bagger almost killed him and his partner and he is looking for revenge. When his daughter arrived on his doorstep after ten years apart, nothing gets worst than having his daughter wanted to be a body bagger in the action. With guys and knives are in the line of crossfire, Terminus City is about to get blown off.

 

I love Body Bags. Its simple, its fast and its the kind of action I enjoy most. With an edgy artwork to boot, every thing about Body Bags is worth a read. Although some may not agree due to the content graphic violence that spells despicable, I do find it honest on how its told and there is so much more to it than just action. While I do love the 80s scene, this comic is just right for my liking.

Global Image Sensor Market is Predicted to reach over USD 12,030 million by 2020

According to the Recent Research Study by Hexa Research, global market of image sensor is estimated to reach over USD 12,030 million by 2020.Image sensors are mainly used in Tablets and Camera phones. Hence, rapid growing demand and use of these devices is likely to be major factor for growth the market. Image sensor detects and conveys that information that constitutes an image. Image sensor shipments were expected to cross around 1,797 million units in 2012 globally. They are estimated to reach 3,009 million units by the year 2020, with growing CAGR 6.6% from 2015 to 2020. CMOS image sensors provide numbers of profits counting super image quality more than their CCD counter parts. In 2012, CMOS image sensors dominated the market globally, contributing for over 82% of total shipments. Contact image sensors need less power and can also be used in smaller devices, this segment is expected to grow at CAGR for around 5.1 % from 2015 to 2020.

Report also stated that, Consumer electronics was expected to be the leading application segment in last few years in volume and cost terms, fueled by rising demand of tablets and mobile phones. Growing demand and usage of camera in Defense sector is expected to fuel the market demand in next five years. Few of the these systems need to be accessed on batteries on field, By which cosmos sensors use on less power that plays a fundamental role for global market demand. CMOS sensor enables the electronic pan and stabilization when there is low light sensitivity. These CMOS sensors cannot be used for scanning purpose. Europe and North America is expected to grow rapidly in next few years. With increased awareness of application of sensors, favorable government rules and regulation and also rapid growth in automobile industry is the major reason for development of Image sensor market globally.

OT: Body image

These days there’s much talk about body image. Women and young girls who dare to post photos of themselves looking different from the current ideal receive negative comments and even threats. As a reaction to all this we are now supposed to love our overweight and less than toned bodies. Personally I couldn’t care less how other people choose to portray themselves. After all, it’s their lives. None of my business. Incidentally, it always seems to be females. Men seem to have no problem loving themselves without posing photos online or elsewhere. But that’s a different (though related) matter. However, I reserve the right to hate my body, while still liking my personality. Being a good person doesn’t require having a perfect or attractive body. So yes, I kind of like myself but kind of hate my body. I’m not going to apologize for that.
