Raw vs. Jpeg
Raw vs Jpeg looks like a holy war today. On the one hand RAW is better, it contains all the data, you may process it in any way you like. On the other hand, Jpeg images are lightweight and can be viewed in almost any image viewer. So if you have folders packed up with Raw photos and you do not plan to work with them later, it may be a good idea to turn them into Jpegs. Any camera that shoots in Raw comes with a special program that will convert raw to jpeg. If you have no idea of where that CD is, try a third-party RAW converter like Total Image Converter from CoolUtils. It supports RAW files from almost all cameras including Nikon, Canon, Kodak, Minolta, Casio, Sony, Pentax and many more.
According to 2Cor 12:7-10 the unique partnership between God’s Power and our weakness is this: He supplies all the power, we supply all the weakness! We can only experience God’s power when we are weak.
Pope Steps down
The leader of 1.2 billion Catholics is stepping down. Not since the Middle Ages (1294) had a sitting Pope stepped down from his office. Joseph Ratzinger, also known as the conservative Pope (nicknamed, “Gods rotweiler”) will be stepping down from his office as Bishop of Rome on Feb 28th, 2013.
Many in the public are already questioning Ratzinger’s move as a result of the ongoing sexual abuses that has plagued the Catholic Chuch.
Bill McMurry, a lawyer from Kentucky, who has sued the Vatican for sexual abuse allegations going back as far as 1928, has told Karen McVeigh in New York it was difficult for him to believe that Benedict had stepped down for health reasons.
He said: “The world is stunned. We don’t see in the history of the papal world a pope stand down. It makes you wonder what’s going on.”
McMurry said he personally held Benedict responsible for “decades” of cover-up of the sex abuse scandal in the US, giving the example of his instructing bishops to send more paedophile priests from one district to another. He told the Guardian: “It is a good day when a bad pope or a bad leader of your religion steps aside.”

My team lost. Yesterday’s game was an utter disappointment. As far as superbowl’s yesterday’s game was actually very entertaining minus the 35min power outage. It was a definite first for the 49er franchise. After 6 tries, we can (finally) say we lost a super bowl.
