How to Shoot in Camera Raw Format From Your Android Smartphone or Tablet.

‘Most’ people who get a tattoo have spent a considerable amount time procrastinating about what type of tattoo they wanted to get and whereabouts on their body it’s was going to go. If you are seriously considering getting a tattoo there is an awesome Augmented Reality (AR) App called InkHunter that will let you sample the design in real time on your body. Alternatively, if you just want to freak out your anti-tattoo friends, family and church buddies, you can always use it as a pretty damn convincing prank.  

Using InkHunter to Preview Tattoo Designs on Your Body Using Your Phone or Tablet and Augmented Reality.

The first step is obviously going to be downloading InkHunter from either Google Play or the App Store. Once you have the app, launch away. On the first launch, there is quick introduction slide of how the app works, after that you are free to start playing with potential ideas.

InkHunter has a preloaded selection of tattoo designs and styles from many different artists. You are also able to upload your own artwork and designs to the app if you are confident your artistic talents are tattoo worthy. Any featured art is also linked back to the artists Instagram page, so if you are interested in following up with a tattoo you’ve seen on InkHunter, you can contact them for more information on their design.

When you start using the something that might seem a little odd, but is actually pretty clever, InkHunter will ask you to put some real ink on your skin, in the place where you’re considering getting a real tattoo before you begin. Don’t stress, you only have to draw a flat-lined emoji face called “Square Smile” so the app knows how to align the images.

When you have lined up the square face on your arm with the one on your camera, the app will place the image onto your body, removing the drawn on Square Smile from the background. You now have the option to tap on the screen and adjust the position, size, angle, colours and textures, using a filters menu that features most of the same options you would find on Instagram, minus the filters of course.  

As well as being able to upload your own tattoo designs, there is also the option to send your tattoo to the team at InkHunter for review, with the possibility of being featured on the app in the future. The app even lets you use the front-facing camera on your phone for sampling face tattoos and tattoos in hard to view places. If you want to sample bigger tattoos, like back and chest tattoos, you will need to get assistance from someone else, as its damn hard to do this on your own.

The only downside about the app is that it doesn’t allow you to sample more than one tattoo, using a layer-based system, so you can’t stack more than one image at any one time to preview. All in all though its one of my favourite apps to fool around with and it’s damn good at what it does.

With Space Tourism a Reality, Will Civilians Travel to Space? And When?

Majd Mayyasi (GRS’09,’13), a BU Center for Space Physics senior research scientist, discusses the future of civilian space travel and how it would impact the study of space with BU Today editor Doug Most. She also shares her experience training for suborbital flight as part of an inaugural program for scientists.

Recent flights by private space travel companies Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic make civilian space travel and tourism a reality

Increased civilian space travel will afford scientists, like Mayyasi, greater opportunities to conduct experiments in space. Currently, the cost of a trip to space is still prohibitive

Space tourists may still need to undergo some physical and mental training before taking a suborbital flight


Dana Ferrante: This is Question of the Week, from BU Today.

With space tourism now a reality, will civilians travel to space, and when? This summer, billionaires Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson each took a suborbital flight in their respective supersonic rockets, launching a new era of space travel, where a ticket to space is available to anyone who can afford it.

In this episode, Doug Most asked Majd Mayyasi, a senior research scientist at the Center for Space Physics at Boston University, about the future of civilian space travel. Mayyasi also shares her experience training for suborbital flight as part of an inaugural program for scientists.

Doug Most: Hi, Majd. Okay, let’s talk space.

So when I read the stories about Bezos and Branson, I admit that I wondered, if given the opportunity, would I want to go up to space? Seeing Earth from above and experiencing weightlessness would be incredible, that’s not really debatable, but is that enough? What do you think? Will space tourism become a real thing?

Majd Mayyasi: Well, Doug, this is a really good question. And one that I’ve been thinking about for a long time, way before Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson made interesting flights. About 11 years or so ago, there was an opportunity for scientists to train for suborbital flight. And the reason they were doing this was because they knew that ultimately this would become a reality, space tourism and space travel.

And also they wanted to get scientists engaged in this opportunity, so it’s been a project that has been in the workings for a very long time. And I actually partnered up with a group that was training scientists to do these suborbital flights. And so I was lucky to be a member of one of the first groups of scientists that got the train for this.

And we trained for the Virgin Galactic module, so it’s been something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. And since that time, you know, would I actually go to space if I had the opportunity? And the answer is most definitely yes. It is by far one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.

It’s extremely engaging to talk about with other people, especially when I do outreach to communities. And in talking to children about what you can do as an astronomer, or how to engage them in astronomy, it’s super fun to tell them that you can potentially go to space someday—if that’s something that you’re interested in—without having to go through all the rigorous training that an astronaut would go through [to become] a full-fledged astronaut.

And so there’s a lot of cool opportunities, and I’m happy to see that this is starting to become more and more of a tangible reality.

Most: Can you just take us inside that training? What was that like? How hard was it and sort of what were you doing?

Mayyasi: It was about a week long or so. It involved a lot of technical background that we first needed to be aware of before we engaged in any of the actual physical training. The physical part involved going into an altitude chamber and seeing what would happen when oxygen levels dropped to a certain level.

With a lot of tests that we needed to undergo or to take, mental tests to see what our thinking capacity would look like with less oxygen. Another test was in the centrifuge—we got to go into the centrifuge, and I think that center has one of the only centrifuges meant for this kind of training in the country.

Most: What were those like? What was it like to experience the three times and the six times?

Mayyasi: The three times the force of gravity was challenging; we didn’t have any special suits on, which is I think what a lot of fighter pilots would typically wear. And they undergo this kind of challenge with different times the force of gravity and sometimes more than three.

For the purposes of three, the challenge was not to pass out, because at three times the force of gravity, the blood is more challenged and being pumped up to your head. And say you’re more likely to start seeing stars before you actually get to them, physically. And so there are maneuvers that you try to basically activate the larger muscles in your body to constrict the blood to enforce it basically to stay up in the upper half of your body.

And that will help you not pass out ultimately, which works, I have to say. The six times the force of gravity on GX, so going into your chest, was really fun and I think a lot of people see that sometimes on TV. When someone has just plastered to their chair and their skin on their cheek is rippling back, that’s a lot of exactly what it looks like and feels like.

It’s pretty interesting, it’s like getting, it’s actually kind of soothing, because your body’s just plastered up against this chair. And it feels like an interesting kind of full body massage.

Most: Almost sounds like a supersonic roller coaster?

Mayyasi: Yeah, that’s really close to it. The challenge is not to turn your head, because that will make you extremely dizzy.

There are cells in your ear that are very sensitive to that kind of force, and it can make people very dizzy for a few days after the fact if they accidentally gets stimulated in the wrong way. So there are some challenges, some restrictions, but it is so much fun, and it was so exciting to be able to train with that program.

And more interestingly, it was very, I think it was very convenient, to be able to be given that opportunity to be able to go into space. And when we’re talking about scientists going into space, we’re not going for the ride; I mean, that’s in and of itself, very cool, obviously. But we’re also going to able to do some science. And you’re gonna be in zero gravity or in that part where you feel weightless for about four minutes. And so the challenges are in being able to design an experiment that you can do in four minutes: designing something that you can debug potentially in four minutes, if anything should go wrong, understanding how to mitigate those issues because you’re gonna be in microgravity.

So you’re gonna be flying around and then your pencil is gonna be in one place and your notebook is in another place. So, mitigating all of that should you have to debug anything is also something to keep in mind. And we did have training for that as well.

Most: It sounds like you think that there will be a day when civilians may actually get a chance to travel into space? You sound somewhat confident—how far out is that?

Mayyasi: That’s a great question. I think that depends on the business model of these companies.

Because currently, as I understand it, the ticket is about a quarter of a million dollars. And so it’s definitely beyond my budget, both personally and professionally. If I were to put this on a science grant to fund my project, for example, it would have to be 10 times less than that, something closer to the $25,000 range.

And if it becomes more commercial, I would say, the prices need to be competitive and something that a person can reasonably afford to spend on a trip like this. It’s definitely super exciting, it’s definitely something that is unique for us today, and I think it’s definitely tangible. And I think it’s just a matter of time until the businesses get to a point where they can facilitate these kinds of trips in an affordable way.

Currently, people have gone to the edge of space with this program. So just at that time cutoff, I’m gonna use SI units here, it’s 100 kilometers, that defines the edge of space more or less. And so that’s where these spacecraft have gone to. To go beyond that, there are other factors to take into consideration also.

A bit higher than that you start going into low Earth orbit, where you have satellites, and how high do you wanna go basically? Are you gonna start interacting with space debris? Are you going to start maybe orbiting alongside a spacecraft? What is the goal for that basically? Are you gonna go pass by the International Space Station, wave at the astronauts, and come back?

It all depends on what the application is. And there are also certain guidelines I think one should be aware of, in terms of what’s already out there at different altitudes. When I was given the opportunity to join this team, it was through a competitive process at BU. They had offered us one seat at BU, the group that was organizing this, and the scientists that ultimately got chosen were from all over the US.

And so, this one seat given at BU was offered by competition and I proposed a certain experiment that I could do at that altitude. I also have a young child and when I talked to him about this, he’s like, “No, you should never go into space, that’s too scary, it’s too risky,” and so on.

But so is driving in your car and so is going on a plane, right? Those are all risky things. I would most definitely go, because it’s so exciting. And because, for me, as a scientist, it offers a lot of opportunities that are not accessible through other means.

This 100-kilometer altitude, it’s not easily accessible by many other methods; I mean, there are maybe sounding rockets that can go up that high. And you can maybe look down at that region from spacecraft that are higher up, but actually physically be there, in situ, and to be able to do your experiment at that altitude, I think, is a remarkable opportunity, and I would take it without hesitation.

“Reality” Bites, But Risks Pay Off

Lindsay Chottiner (COM’04) moved to Atlanta without a job in the hopes of getting hired at Turner Broadcasting Systems. After months of freelancing, she was hired by the Cartoon Network.

Lindsay Chottiner had no idea how dull reality could be until she worked on a reality television show.

“I watched all the footage of women going on dates, and I actually typed them verbatim so that the story editors could put together the stories,” says the 22-year-old. “It was a tedious job.”

Tedium — along with loneliness, fear, and near-poverty — were major components of Chottiner’s first year out of BU, but now, 18 months after Commencement, she’s learned that big risks can lead to big results. Chottiner moved to Atlanta in August 2004 without a job or any knowledge of the city, and after months of freelance work at several different networks, she was hired in February by Turner Broadcasting System. She’s now a production coordinator in on-air promotions at the Cartoon Network, where she helps coordinate the marketing needed to distribute the shows around the world.

“I guess I’m very persistent in what I aim for,” she says. “I just kind of went for it.”

Chottiner developed her determination in college, going after — and obtaining — internships at the Fox network and at WHDH. The characteristic became critical at the end of her senior year, when a job she expected to get with Fox didn’t work out. “I thought I had a job up until two days before graduation, and it was a big blow to my ego,” she says. “I was scared that I wouldn’t find anything; I doubted the industry I chose.”

She spent the next six weeks in Boston, applying for production assistant jobs in New York, but nothing worked out, and she went home to Pittsburgh in July. Assessing her options, she began looking for work in Atlanta because it was home to Turner, one of the country’s largest broadcasting companies. When a media production firm told her there would be a job for her in September, Chottiner decided to take a chance and head south.

“I didn’t know what the city was going to be like,” she says. “It’s a lot different from Boston. It’s all driving — you can’t walk anywhere. It was a huge change.”

Chottiner bought a car and settled into an apartment, but then came the bad news that the production company couldn’t hire her. The next few months provided some valuable lessons in persistence and determination — Chottiner sent resumes all over the city, and “followed up” relentlessly. Her efforts didn’t lead to a full-time job, but she was able to work somewhat steadily throughout the fall — first on Elimidate, another dating-themed reality television show, then on Warm Springs, the HBO biopic about Franklin Roosevelt.

Working in the real world, Chottiner discovered, wasn’t much like having an internship. Freelancing was unstable — she never knew how long a job would last. Supervisors at her internships had been “very nurturing” and went out of their way to provide guidance and education. At her freelance jobs, in contrast, she was expected to know what to do and to do it well. In addition, while the writing and editing skills she had learned in her COM classes were valuable, people skills turned out to be equally important at this stage in her career. “I think everything I learned I can apply,” she says. “But I’m not using everything I learned just yet.”

The challenges she faced as an inexperienced freelancer ultimately proved useful: when she finally got the job at the Cartoon Network, Chottiner knew what a real-world production job required and was ready to handle the responsibilities. As a production coordinator, she now communicates with the network’s five international branches — the United Kingdom, Europe, Latin America, Japan, and Asia and the Pacific — to make sure that all domestic promotional material is dubbed, repackaged, and distributed for international broadcasting and marketing. In the next few months, she will begin shadowing writers and producers so she can get a better look at the creative side of production as well. In January, after 11 months on the job, she will meet with her supervisors to discuss a new placement within the Cartoon Network, based on her interests and strengths.

Atlanta, which once seemed impossibly big and complicated, is growing more manageable as well. Chottiner misses Boston, but she’s getting to know her new city and making new friends by becoming involved in the community. She supplements her income with freelance photography for Emory University, which also helps her meet new people, and teaches children’s Sunday school classes on the weekends. She moved out of her first apartment, which was a little too suburban, over the summer and is living closer to the vibrant city known as “Hotlanta.”

Looking back on the past year, she doesn’t think she would change a thing.

“You definitely will grow as a person,” she says of the first year after college. “You may cry a couple of times, you might have a mental breakdown, but don’t worry. If you want something bad enough, you can get it.”

Boo! The Scary Reality Of Employee Ghosting

Have you ever experienced the job-hunting nightmare of submitting an employment application, getting called for an interview that seems to go well and then never hearing from the employer again? If you answered yes, you’re in good company. A recent Greenhouse survey shows more than 75% of job seekers have been ghosted after an interview.

While businesses have committed their fair share of ghosting job applicants, the tables are now turning, with the potential employees themselves pulling off the disappearing act. In 2023, Indeed found that 28% of job seekers have ghosted an employer, up from only 18% in 2023. With a hot labor market favoring workers, applicants are being more selective when it comes to their employment, with many of them ghosting current and potential employers in the process.

What is employee ghosting?

Urban Dictionary defines ghosting as “the shutdown/ceasing of communication with someone without notice.” Although the term typically refers to cutting off communication in a personal or romantic relationship, the concept has wormed its way into the business realm. Ghosting an employer happens when a job seeker or employee suddenly cuts off communication with the organization without any explanation or warning. They simply stop engaging with their company and go MIA.

In the recruitment process, ghosting commonly takes place after initial digital communication or a phone screening, during or after a series of job interviews, and even sometimes after the candidate receives or accepts a job offer. Just because a candidate signs your offer letter doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. A Visier survey found that a rising number of employees are ghosting companies during the late stages of hiring and onboarding, with 31% of people admitting they would even ghost an employer after their first day on the job. Poof – talent vanished.

Why are job seekers and employees ghosting employers?

So, we know some job seekers and employees are pulling fast ones on employers nowadays, but the question is why. It largely comes down to leverage and opportunity, but let’s dive a little deeper. Visier uncovered the top five reasons why job seekers and new employees ghost their potential or current employers.

The salary is too low (according to 29% of survey respondents).

They received another job offer that was more attractive (28%).

The job description was inaccurate (27%).

The company has a poor reputation or negative online reviews (26%).

They disliked the perceived company culture (22%).

These may be the underlying reasons for quitting, but why are job seekers and employees disappearing into thin air instead of giving employers the courtesy of a breakup email? There are a few possible explanations for employee ghosting and the silent treatment, such as job seekers being uncomfortable telling the employer they changed their mind. Others may just not know what to do in such a predicament, and still more may place the blame on the company if they can’t get ahold of human resources. This trend also seems to be rising as younger generations become a more substantial part of the working world – you can draw your own conclusion there.

How can you avoid being ghosted by job seekers and employees?  

Recruiting and onboarding a new employee is expensive. One bad hire can cost your business 30% of the employee’s first-year earnings or more. To make sure you don’t get ghosted, spend your time and efforts on recruiting the right people and providing enticing opportunities to make them stay. Here are seven ways to do that.

1. Maintain a positive business reputation.

Your brand and company reputation play an important role in the success of your organization. Customers, clients, employees and job seekers all pay attention to what other people say about you, so you need to do your best to ensure it’s all good things. As job seekers work their way through your recruitment process, they are bound to read some online reviews about the business. Build a positive online reputation, respond to online reviews and commit to remedying any of your organization’s shortcomings. People want to work for good companies that do good things.


If your brand needs some improvement, follow these strategies to strengthen your company’s reputation.


Give each applicant a clear outline of your hiring process with anticipated time frames. This will keep them informed so they know what to expect from you as your talks continue.

6. Build personal connections ASAP.

People tend to gravitate toward people and organizations with which they feel a shared personal connection. If you’re excited about a candidate or new employee, make it known. Try to build an authentic relationship with them as early on as possible. People are more likely to stick around if they feel wanted, connected and included. Some ways you can build connections with new hires are by creating a welcoming committee, assigning peer mentors and implementing an effective onboarding process.

7. Don’t ghost candidates.

Ghosting has been an unfortunate part of the recruitment experience for a long time, but it used to be that employers were the primary culprits. Now that you know how awful it is to be on the other end, that’s all the more reason to stop engaging in ghosting yourself. We know it can be tough to respond to every candidate throughout the recruitment process, but it’s always a good idea to reply, even if it’s simply to say, “We’re pursuing other applicants.” This helps stop the cycle of ghosting, and it’s a good way to earn goodwill and a positive reputation for communication. If you can’t engage with everyone personally, there are plenty of applicant tracking systems and other HR technology solutions that can help automate the process. [See our picks for the best HR software.]

What should you do when an employee ghosts you? 

Ghosting is rude and it hurts. It’s hard not to take it personally when someone seems interested in you and then suddenly disappears, but perhaps it’s for the best. If a candidate ghosts you, they’re displaying traits you probably don’t want in a team member anyway. Cut ties and move on. Continue with your recruitment process so you can find the best employees for your organization.

If you notice that a significant number of potential and new employees are leaving you high and dry, it may be time to reassess your recruitment strategy and company culture. The tips above can be used to enhance your organization’s appeal and employee retention.

Mclaren 600Lt Points Howling Vertical Exhausts Through Longtail Body

McLaren 600LT points howling vertical exhausts through Longtail body

A new McLaren is always something special, but the 2023 McLaren 600LT is arguably even more unusual than most. Fourth of the company’s cars to bear the “Longtail” name, it’s a limited-production, track-focused, F1 GTR inspired lap monster, with 592 horsepower and a distinctive style.

The first Longtail was the original McLaren F1 GTR race car, using its extended body to improve aerodynamics. McLaren then resurrected the name for special versions of the 675LT Coupe and Spider. As with those two cars, the 600LT is designed to be as at-home on the track as it is on the road.

It’s 2.9-inches longer than the rest of the Sports Series, but over 211 pounds lighter than the DIN weight of the McLaren 570S Coupe. Indeed, while the looks may be similar at first glance, the automaker says that nearly a quarter of the parts have been changed for the Longtail. That’s been instrumental in bringing its dry weight down to just over 2,749 pounds.

The new carbon fiber bodywork includes an extended front splitter, lengthened rear diffuser, and a fixed rear wing. There’s also a unique exhaust system, the top-exit pipes of which give the Longtail a differentiated look as well as cutting weight. McLaren is promising a more impressive song from them, too, which you can preview in the launch video below; more of it will make it into the cabin, too, thanks to firmer engine mounts and the proximity of the tailpipes.

Inside, the P1 donates its Carbon Fiber Racing Seats, and McLaren has splashed plenty of Alcantara around the cabin too. There’s the option of Super Lightweight carbon fiber seats, too, borrowed from the McLaren Senna, for even more weight loss. The McLaren Special Operations team – which handles all the automaker’s custom requests – can be brought in to give the 600LT a carbon fiber roof, cantrails, and vented carbon fiber front fenders.

Weight is just part of the equation, of course: you also need power. Doing the job there is a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8, good for 592 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. It gets a new, stronger cooling system and reduced back pressure in the exhaust system.

Forged aluminum double-wishbone suspension and a lightweight braking system have been used, and there are custom Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires. McLaren says it has tightened up the steering so that it’s quicker, as well as sharpened the response from both the throttle and brake pedals.

The key, though, is downforce. McLaren isn’t giving specific figures, but says that it has been “substantially increased” and in particular on the track. Buyers will get a Pure McLaren Road Owner Track Day as part of the sticker price, too. They’ll be relatively few and far between, however. McLaren says it will be strictly limiting the production of the 600LT Coupe, starting in October this year but only scheduled to last for around twelve months. Pricing is yet to be announced.
