Utah hiker captures terrifying experience running into a mountain lion and cubs



“You see the two cubs and one kind of runs off, but then I didn’t notice mom was right there and that’s when I knew it was not a good situation to be in,” he told CBS News.  

During the expletive-filled clip, Burgess made loud noises, roared and walked away slowly as the big cat followed him, but stayed at a distance.

“Go away!” he said. “Please, go away. I’m big and scary.” 

At one point, the mountain lion hissed and charged with her claws out at Burgess.

A New Box-Style Mirrorless Cinema & Live Event Camera LUMIX BGH1 Featuring C4K/4K 60p and 10-bit Video Recording

1. Professional-level video quality achieved by high sensitivity and wide dynamic range
The new LUMIX BGH1 integrates a 10.2-megapixel Live MOS Sensor with Dual Native ISO technology and the Venus Engine. Dual Native ISO is a technology that seamlessly bridges two circuits of separate native ISO, which is used in Panasonic Varicam models for professionals. Normally, noise increases as sensitivity rises with a single native ISO image sensor. However, the image sensor with Dual Native ISO minimizes noise generation by choosing an optimal circuit to use according to the sensitivity before gain processing. As a result, it allows a maximum ISO 51,200 high sensitivity recording.

The LUMIX BGH1 enables 4:2:0 10-bit C4K/4K 60p or 4:2:2 10-bit All-I C4k/4K 30p internal video recording. The camera can record video with a designated gamma curve compatible with ITU-R BT.2100, and users can now choose Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) in Photo Style.

Anita Hill and Joe Biden

Anita Hill was a guest on “The View” on Friday where she explained why she has endorsed Joe Biden for President of the United States, despite his role in her 1991 Senate testimony against Clarence Thomas.

“Vice President Biden did appear on your show and I do recall that you helped move him forward and understand his responsibility for those hearings,” Hill told co-host Joy Behar on “The View.”

“Having said that, that is really part of why I have decided that I want to move forward and continue to push for the kind of acknowledgment and responsibility and accountability for making sure what happened to me, and what happened later to Christine Blasey Ford, does not happen again. But not just in terms of Senate committee hearings — just in terms of the way we are treating women in workplaces, on the

NHS video showcases ‘amazing contribution’ of mental health nurses

A powerful new video highlighting the life-changing work carried out by mental health nurses and their ability to “offer hope” has been released, featuring testimonials from patients and nurses themselves.

Launched to mark World Mental Health Day, the six-minute film aims to thank mental health nurses for the work they do and to inspire more people to join the profession in England.

It comes amid concern that on the current path there will not be enough of these nurses to meet future demand, and that outdated sterotypes and lack of understanding about the role could be driving away potential recruits.

The video was created jointly by NHS England and NHS Improvement, Health Education England, and the Speaker Collective social enterprise, and comes with the hashtag: #MHnursesofferhope.

Members of the Speaker Collective, which works to encourage more open conversations about mental health, speak in the video of the difference nurses made

Pentax Has Apparently Realized That DSLRs Can Capture Video

If the word on the street is to be believed, we may be blessed with a Pentax APS-C DSLR that’s designed for videography.

2020 has thrown many curveballs at us, but nobody saw this one coming. Pentax is apparently working on a new APS-C DSLR that will be video-forward. Over the last few years, we have seen some incredible developments in the world of cameras and their video capabilities. The GH5s is legendary, the new Sony a7s III is perhaps the best on the market for 4K. The Canon EOS R5 can shoot 8K and so on. In the past, Pentax has rivaled perhaps an 80s camcorder when it comes to video capabilities. Still, apparently, Pentax feels left out, and they want a piece of the video action too. Let’s talk about this totally bizarre piece of Pentax APS-C DSLR speculation after the break.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s explosive fight on ‘KUWTK’

On ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ Thursday night, Kris Jenner got the whole family together for a family vacation in Palm Springs to reconnect, after seeing Kim and Kourtney physically going at each other last season. However, while Kim, Kourtney and Khloé were drama-free, a fight between sisters still went down, this time between Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
