Russia gifts France a police puppy to replace dog killed in anti-terrorist raids

This is Diesel, a 7 year old Belgian Malinois who was a member of an elite French anti-terror unit. Sadly Diesel was killed during a raid, where he died scouting a potentially dangerous situation from the blast of a female suicide bomber.

As a gesture of solidarity and support, Russia has gifted the French Police with a little German Shepherd pup called Dobryna. Named after a Russian Knight, his name stands for Strength, Kindness, Valour and Selfless Help.

This is how movies are delivered to your local theater.

This is a Peli 1300 flight case, which most hard drives containing the DCP (Digital Cinema Package) are shipped in.

Inside is a CRU DX115 caddy, which contains a standard Western Digital 500gb hard drive, Linux formatted in EXT3. Here, it is slotted into CRU’s accompanying Move Dock.

Depending on the theater’s set-up, the caddy (right) may slot straight into their server, and the files ingested (or in some cases, played directly from the hard drive without the need for them to be transferred). If the theatre is unable to slot the drive directly into their server, the Move Dock is a separate external dock that allows the drive to be connected to the server via a USB or SATA connection.

Beneath the caddy are all the necessary cables for the move dock to work. The theatre should already have these, but we like to include them so as to make sure they’re on hand if required. Our power adapter is currently awaiting replacement, after it made a rather loud bang and started giving out smoke the last time it was plugged in.

And finally, this is the contents of the DCP folder, as viewed on a Mac. It contains: Video (MXF) Audio (MXF) Packing List (XML) Composition Playlist (XML) Asset Map Volume Index And that’s how movies are shown at your local theater. If you’d like to check out Candlestick, it’s available now on DVD from Amazon, and to download from iTunes, Google Play, MGo and more. (Here endeth the shameless self promotion.)

This is the last surviving rescue dog from the September 11th, 2001 attack, sitting at Ground Zero. She was 2 years old during that time and is 15 years old pictured. The rescue dogs at ground zero were upset and agitated by their failure to find survivors. Volunteers hid in the rubble so the dogs could find them. This raised the dogs spirits and allowed them to continue their efforts.
