I had never met a nuclear physicist until I moved to Albuquerque. Now I know several.
I had never heard the term “atomic tourism” until a few years ago, when a seatmate on a flight told me why he was travelling to New…Continue
I climbed the mountain yesterday on a route that took me from the tram parking lot through the La Luz trail and then up some improvised routes to the top of the mountain.

Looking like the full moon nesting in the bare trees of South Broadway, an eerie light shown. That bright light visible over the Downtown area was in a huge box of lights set on a gantry crane over the downtown railroad yards.
Albuquerque residents are growing used to the occasional odd bright light in the city at night. We have come to know that they indicate a 'movie/tv shoot' is…

The last two years of my life have been a roller coaster. January of 2009 I got laid off from my job at a place I worked for 10 years. I quickly got another job, but I’ll only say that I was not a “good fit” and I literally walked out after three months. I applied for every job I could and received many “thanks, but no thanks” letters from prospective employers.
I ended up…Continue
E-fairness has been in the news recently, and there are a lot of takes, a lot of numbers, and a lot of opposing arguments. As an independent business, Bookworks supports this sales tax legislation, and since it's a topic not everyone's well-versed on (and I've had practice explaining it in detail to Congressman Heinrich and a staffer of Senator Udall's), here's as brief a primer as I can create:

With only a few weeks left in the 50th legislature the halls are filled with all kinds of aphorisms about our state’s budget. The usual dichotomy is between those who want to cut spending and those who want to to raise revenues. Underneath each option is a wide range of specific proposals, but there is another force at play driving our state’s budget and our local economy, that until recently has seen little attention.

Well, I did it! I upgraded to HD. It wasn’t easy, or cheap, but I wanted the best TV ever because I’m a movie junkie and I work hard and I deserve it. Here are some of my observations:
HD TV rocks. Why? Because it’s an artistic experience, with visuals that are a leap above normal similar to taking off your sunglasses in an art gallery. It clears up your vision so you can see details. Today I watched the movie “Troy” with Eric Bana and Peter O’Toole. I love this movie…Continue

Always have the person's body facing one direction or another, usually at a 30- to 45-degree angle to the camera. Always have subjects put their weight on the back foot rather than distributing their weight evenly on both feet.Bill Hurter, Techniques of Portrait Photography… Continue
