ArenaCup

The ArenaCup was the af2's championship game. For the league's first five years, it was held at the arena of the higher seeded team. However, the 2005 ArenaCup was the first to be played at a neutral site in Louisiana; the 2006 ArenaCup was played in Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan. On August 25, 2007, ArenaCup 8 returned to Bossier City, LA. ArenaCup 9 was played at the arena of the Spokane Shock. ArenaCup 10 was held at the Orleans Arena in Nevada. For the 2000 and 2001 ArenaCups, the game was televised nationally by TNN, who carried AFL games at the time. However, when the AFL announced their televised games would be shown on NBC rather than TNN, the ArenaCup telecast was lost; the 2002 ArenaCup was televised by the Vision Network, the 2003 game was televised by KWHB, a local station in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After having no television coverage in 2004, the game was telecast nationally by Fox Sports Net in 2005 and Comcast Sports Net in 2006; the ArenaCup, along with all assets of af2, were purchased by Arena Football 1 in December 2009.

Because that league uses the ArenaBowl as its championship, the ArenaCup was retired

During this particular show, Cash introduced his father Ray and Shel Silverstein, who wrote Cash's biggest pop hit, "A Boy Named Sue".

National Art Gallery, Chennai

The National Art Gallery situated in Egmore, Chennai, is one of the oldest art galleries in India. It is located in the Government Museum Complex on Pantheon Road, which houses the Government Museum and the Connemara Public Library. Constructed with red stones sourced from Satyavedu in Andhra Pradesh, the Gallery was built in 1906 in Indo-Sarsenic architecture and houses paintings from Thanjavur, Rajasthan and Deccan areas, as well as sandalwood sculptures; the Gallery has remained closed since 2002. The National Art Gallery was built during the celebration of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in Indo-Saracenic style, designed by architect Henry Irwin; the Gallery has been identified as a Heritage site by the CMDA. As of 2002 the gallery has been closed for tourists, due to several building flaws and structural instability, which triggered severe criticism from art critics; the gallery contains rare works of Raja Ravi Varma. It has various Tanjore Paintings. Portraits of various British officers such as Lord Connemara and Lord William Bentinck are present.

The art gallery included numerous miniature paintings depicting court and battle scenes. In 2013, the Gallery was set for a major face lift with Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa allocating ₹ 110 million for repairs and forming an expert committee for its restoration. In 2019, renovation of the Gallery began at a cost of ₹ 110 million. After renovation, it will have 200 unique exhibits on display, including paintings of Ravi Varma, sandalwood artefacts, ivory objects, miniature artefacts, Tanjore paintings, Rajput paintings and traditional paintings from across India.

Tripod (photography)

In photography, a tripod is used to stabilize and elevate a camera, a flash unit, or other photographic equipment. All photographic tripods have a mounting head to couple with a camera; the mounting head includes a thumbscrew that mates to a female threaded receptacle on the camera, as well as a mechanism to be able to rotate and tilt the camera when it is mounted on the tripod. Tripod legs are made to telescope, in order to save space when not in use. Tripods are made from aluminum, carbon fiber, wood or plastic. Tripods are used for both still and motion photography to prevent camera movement, they are necessary when slow-speed exposures are being made, or when lenses of extreme focal length are used, as any camera movement while the shutter is open will produce a blurred image. In the same vein, they reduce camera shake, thus are instrumental in achieving maximum sharpness. A tripod is helpful in achieving precise framing of the image, or when more than one image is being made of the same scene, for example when bracketing the exposure.

Use of a tripod may allow for a more thoughtful approach to photography. For all of these reasons, a tripod of some sort is necessary for professional photography as well as certain video uses. Tripods are used as an alternative to C-Stands to photographic accessories. For maximum strength and stability, most photographic tripods are braced around a center post, with collapsible telescoping legs and a telescoping section at the top that can be raised or lowered. At the top of the tripod is the head, which includes the camera mount, several joints to allow the camera to pan and tilt, a handle to allow the operator to do so without jostling the camera; some tripods feature integrated remote controls to control a camcorder or camera, though these are proprietary to the company that built the camera. Materials used in the construction of tripod or monopod legs include metal and carbon fiber-reinforced plastics, among others. Per ISO 1222:2010, the current tripod screw thread standard for attaching the camera calls for a 1/4-20 UNC or 3/8-16 UNC thread.

Most consumer cameras are fitted with 1/4-20 UNC threads. Larger, professional cameras and lenses may be fitted with 3/8-16 UNC threads, plus a removable 1/4-20 UNC adapter, allowing them to be mounted on a tripod using either standard; the Royal Photographic Society recommended the thread standard for attaching older cameras to tripods was 3/16-24 BSW, or 1/4-20 BSW for smaller cameras and 3/8-16 BSW for larger cameras and pan/tilt heads. In this application, the BSW and UNC thread profiles are similar enough that one can mount a modern camera on a legacy tripod and vice versa; the UNC threads are a 60-degree angle and flattened, whereas the BSW are a 55-degree angle and rounded crest. However, at least one English manufacturer uses No.1 B. A. for its tripod mount thread. There are several types of tripods; the least expensive made of aluminum tubing and costing less than US$50, is used for consumer still and video cameras. The head is basic, not suitable for smooth panning of a camcorder. A common feature designed for still cameras, allows the head to flip sideways 90 degrees to allow the camera to take pictures in portrait format rather than landscape.

Included is a small pin on the front of the mounting screw, used to stabilize camcorders. This is not found on the more expensive photographic tripods. More expensive professional tripods are sturdier and come with no integrated head; the separate heads allow a tripod-head combination to be customized to the photographer's needs. There are expensive carbon fiber tripods, used for applications where the tripod needs to be lightweight. Many tripods some inexpensive ones include leveling indicators for the legs of the tripod and the head. Many of the more expensive tripods have additional features, such as a reversible center post so that the camera may be mounted between the legs, allowing for shots from low positions, legs that can open to several different angles. Small tabletop tripods are available, ranging from flimsy models costing less than US$20, to professional models that can cost up to US$800 and can support up to 68 kg, they are used in situations. An alternative is a clamp-pod, a ball head attached to a C-clamp.

Another technique involves forming a string triangle held taut around the two feet of the photographer and linked to the camera. This negative string "tripod" can stabilize the camera sufficiently to use a shutter speed three stops slower; the head is the part of the tripod that allows it to be aimed. It may be integrated into a separate part. There are two different types of heads available. A ball head utilizes a ball joint to allow movement of all axes of rotation from a single point; some ball heads have a separate panoramic rotation axis on the base of the head. The head has two main parts, the ball, which attaches to the camera and the socket, which attaches to the tripod; the camera is attached to a simple UNC 1/4" -20 screw. The socket is where the ball rotates in, contains the controls for locking the ball; the socket has a slot on the side. Ball heads come in varying styles of com
