I hate The Artist.
This is a lie. But people who have had conversations with me about The Artist over the last couple of months might have come away with that conclusion. 

Scott Tobias tries to explain why he doesn’t hate The Artist, even if the film’s Oscar nominations make it seem that way.

About Caroline Irwin

Bio: Caroline Irwin is a final year film student and amateur photographer living in Belfast,N Ireland: “My photographs centre almost entirely around my day to day life, i have taken to photography for its ability to encourage my engagement with the world around me,no matter how mundane,ugly, the environment i will always be searching for a photo opportunity, often i’m basically just trying to make my life look and feel prettier than it really is, but in doing so i find things to appreciate that i would otherwise overlook. I take photos,especially with film, because i enjoy the serendipity of the process,something which this double exposure project takes to the extreme! I am also currently learning darkroom skills and loving every minute of it. “

B.E. Presents: Active Suspension in Formula 1
Introduced in 1987 with the Lotus 99T, Active Suspension was arguably the most significant F1 technology since the utilization of aerodynamics. A.S. was developed to its highest point in 1991 with the Williams FW14, but was banned in 1994 (along with other driver aids such as traction control and ABS) on the grounds that it made driver skill nearly irrelevant. 
Quite simply, active suspension serves two purposes:
To keep tires in their maximum contact patch with the road under all G-conditions; cornering, braking, and acceleration.
To keep the ride height of the car constant under all G-conditions, to preserve optimum aerodynamics.
