I know because I have just spent two years organizing 696,000 digital photos from a decade of my travels. I learned a lot along the way, including the importance of deleting the duds and organizing the keepers before trips become faint memories. Maybe you have experienced this, too: You return home from a vacation with hundreds of photos scattered across multiple devices — your smartphone, tablet, action camera, and DSLR. You post a few photos online and forget to sort through the others. Trips come and go, and suddenly you have thousands of unorganized photos filling up your SD cards and devices or stored on multiple hard drives and computers. “I think digital photography grew faster than anyone … [Read more...] about You went on vacation and took thousands of photos. Now what? Here’s how to organize them.

PARIS – Paying tribute to “a prolific creative mind with endless imagination,” the house of Chanel on Tuesday confirmed “with deep sadness” the passing of its longtime creative director Karl Lagerfeld and said his longtime right-hand woman Virginie Viard would succeed him.“Virginie Viard, director of Chanel’s fashion creation studio and Karl Lagerfeld’s closest collaborator for more than 30 years, has been entrusted by [Chanel chief executive officer] Alain Wertheimer with the creative work for the collections, so that the legacy of Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld can live on,” the house said.Lagerfeld boasted that his contract with Chanel was one page long, emblematic of his close ties to the owners of the privately held firm. Lagerfeld claimed to never schedule meetings with the Wertheimers, or even talk that much about business, although the brothers Alain and Gerard were often at his elbow in his studio at the Rue Cambon, or … [Read more...] about Chanel pays tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, names Virginie Viard as successor
Nicole Winfield and Trisha Thomas Associated Press Published 9:56 PM EST Jan 25, 2019 Las Garzas, Panama – Pope Francis on Friday brought World Youth Day to Panama’s juvenile delinquents, celebrating an emotional penitential liturgy inside the country’s main youth prison since the inmates couldn’t participate in the Catholic Church’s big festival of faith outside. Fulfilling his belief that no one should be separated from God’s mercy, Francis also heard the confessions of five inmates at the Las Garzas de Pacora detention center. At least one of them wept uncontrollably afterward. “There are no words to describe the freedom I feel in this moment,” one of the inmates, Luis Oscar Martinez, told the pope at the start of the service inside barbed wire-ringed facility outside Panama City. It was an emotional highlight of Francis’ four-day trip to Panama and a hands-on demonstration of his belief that prisoners deserve the same … [Read more...] about Pope brings World Youth Day to prisoners

Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Dave Barry December 30, 2018 We can summarize 2018 in two words: It boofed. We’re not 100 percent sure what “boofing” is, despite the fact that this very issue was discussed in a hearing of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. All we know for certain about boofing is that it is distasteful and stupid. As was 2018. In spades. What made this year so awful? We could list many factors, including natural disasters, man-made atrocities, the utter depravity of our national political discourse, and the loss of Aretha Franklin. Instead, we’ll cite one event that, while minor, epitomizes 2018: the debut of Dr. Pimple Popper. This is a cable-TV reality show featuring high-definition slo-mo close-up videos of a California dermatologist performing seriously disgusting procedures on individuals with zits the size of mature cantaloupes. You might ask, … [Read more...] about Dave Barry’s year in review: Good riddance to 2018!
