The condition of DVDs, as well as CDs, tends to deteriorate over time. The easiest way of archiving home movies is saving them on an external or internal hard drive. There are plenty of ways to digitize your DVD collection, but we have selected the fastest and easiest of them and gave them a short review. Read on to know all the available options and choose the most suitable one for your needs. You might also want to check out the frequently asked questions section to get additional information about changing DVDs to MP4.
If you have a collection of old home movies recorded on videotapes or old film reels, chances are you have no way to view them. The good news is that you can indeed convert home videos into MP4 video files to save, view, and share with your family. It is also a smart and safe idea. As videotapes and film reels age, it gets harder to preserve the content stored on them.
For tech-savvy individuals, converting home movies to digital can be a fairly straightforward DIY project. If convenience and safety are a priority, choosing a professional video transfer service like Nostalgic Media is the way to go.
Sissy Spacek and Whoopi Goldberg put on spectacular performances in this story of the relationship between an affluent woman and her maid in Montgomery, Alabama, during the bus boycott. The movie shows how both women start out filling the roles that society expects of them - a housewife and a servant - but both slowly realize that they have to be more than this. There's no glossing over the rabid racism of many of the people in Montgomery, some of whom believe the Civil Rights Movement to be a commie plot.There's a scene where we hear a suggestion that there might one day be a black person in a position of power. Obviously that's now the case, but racism persists, as do police killings of unarmed blacks. Movies like "The Long Walk Home" will remain relevant as long as these problems continue. I recommend the movie both as a look at the events of the era, and as a look at how these women of different socioeconomic backgrounds turned out to have more in common than they realized.Definitely worth seeing. Watch for an early appearance by Ving Rhames (Marcellus in "Pulp Fiction") as Whoopi Goldberg's husband.
But some of the other systems within our congregations go back a long way as well. Our volunteer systems were also largely created during a time when there was one stay at home person in the couple. Typically, the wife would have more time during the days to come and participate in the ladies' auxiliary or bake for the Sunday social or just spend more time giving their time to church committees.
They've got their earphones in, listening to Spotify, and they're Facebook chatting on one side, they're texting on the other side. And right in the middle of the screen is their homework that they're completing that they may have downloaded from an online educational platform. But there's literally simulation and information coming at them from all sides. And this is new in human history.
So all of these things let me-- I wrote about all of these things in a paper called Full Week Faith, and it's available online free to download. You can read more information about it. And there's also a study guide that goes along with it as well. I wrote it in a way that religious professionals could take this document and share it with laypeople, because we all know these common issues.
KAREN BELLAVANCE-GRACE: Right. So this is where the curation piece comes in, because I've heard this also from religious educators, is that our Tapestry of Faith curricula are so well written and so thoroughly researched and so pristinely edited, and that takes a lot of pages. So I know I've heard from religious educators too, who have teachers that get overwhelmed when they see that it's 30 something pages to download. So that's where the religious educator can be a curator and just take out the text of the story to share with your parents of kids who can't be there on Sunday morning, along with two or three questions for reflection together, instead of downloading the whole lesson plan.
So, what with the game-play criticisms beginning to affect the bottom line, Cinemaware really needed to deliver something special for their second game of 1989. Thankfully, It Came from the Desert would prove to be the point where they finally got this interactive-movie thing right, delivering at long last a game as nice to play as it is to look at.
Apple announced the original AirPods on September 7, 2016, and for the past four years, this device has been one of the most beloved Apple products. If you use AirPods, you know why. It essentially weighs nothing, it sounds great, and it doesn't get in your way when you are enjoying music, listening to a podcast, watching a movie, talking on the phone, etc. A year ago, Apple introduced the AirPods Pro, adding noise cancellation. At $250, the AirPods Pro is more expensive than any other headphone that I have ever used, but it works great. And during the pandemic this year, I have appreciated my AirPods Pro even more. The noise cancellation is great when you are stuck at home with other family members and want to tune out some of the surrounding noise, and they also work great on a videoconference. I even use them in my office, connected to my PC, when I am using Microsoft Teams or Zoom. 2b1af7f3a8
