Google’s PhotoScan App

capri10_001

Google recently released an app called PhotoScan to make it easier for people that are tasked with digitizing photos. And you can download Google PhotoScan on iOS and Android.

The PhotoScan app opens up your smartphone camera and asks you to position a printed photo within the frame. After you line up the printed photo within the frame, you will need to tap on the shutter button. The shutter button triggers the flash and shows four white circles on the corners of the printed photo. Once you hover your phone camera above each white circle, PhotoScan will automatically crop, remove the light glare and enhance the photos. And after the photo is processed, you can manually adjust the corners and rotate as necessary.When you are finished digitizing your photos, you can save all of the scans to your camera roll with one tap. After the photos are added to the camera roll, you will see a confirmation and a button to open the Google Photos app where the scans can be viewed.

1. The Founding Fathers penned the first couple of drafts of the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper, since at the time at least 75 percent of all the world’s paper was made from cannabis hemp fiber. The democratic delegates eked out the document’s first and second drafts—completed on June 28th and July 2nd 1776, respectively—on Dutch hemp paper. The final document had a more official air, though, as it was printed on parchment

The Democratic Party’s donkey symbol was adopted in 1828, when, during an election, Andrew Jackson’s opponents called him a jackass. The Republican Party’s elephant symbol was adopted in 1874 after satirical cartoonist Thomas Nast drew an elephant, labeling it “the Republican vote.”

Washington was a savvy businessman who owned one of the largest distilleries in 18th century America, and by 1799 alone he was producing 11,000 gallons of whiskey. In 1797 George Washington’s farm manager, a Scot named James Anderson, convinced his employer that producing whiskey made from corn and rye grown on the plantation would be a natural complement to his milling business. Washington erected the 2,250 square foot distillery, making it among the largest whiskey distilleries in early America. Today, the two-story stone distillery is reconstructed and operates seasonally, mashing, fermenting and distilling grain as it was done in the eighteenth century.

  James Madison was only 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighed under 100 pounds.
As a young wrestler, Lincoln was defeated only once out of approximately 300 matches.
While in the Navy, Nixon realized that his friends were winning money at poker games. Wanting to get in on the action, Nixon had someone teach him poker and within a few months he won around $6,000. He used that money to fund his first congressional campaign.
Hoover’s son had two pet alligators that were permitted to run around throughout the White House.
The largest president in American history, Taft got himself stuck in the White House bathtub and had to call help to get himself out.
Warren G. Harding was not a very good gambler
In a poker game gone wrong, Harding lost the White House’s china collection.
Woodrow Wilson didn’t learn to read until he was 10 years old, Wilson is America’s most educated president. He is the only president to have earned a Ph.D., which he earned from John Hopkins University in political science and history.
Andrew Johnson was noticeably drunk during the inauguration ceremony after drinking too much whiskey beforehand.
ames A. Garfield was ambidextrous
Garfield was ambidextrous and could write Latin with one hand and Greek with other at the same time.
Chester A. Arthur was a huge sartorialist
Arthur owned 80 pairs of pants and was known for taking late night strolls around D.C. with his friends and sauntering back at three in the morning.
Benjamin Harrison was the first president to have electricity in the White House but was so terrified of getting electrocuted that he would never turn on the switches himself.

Hillary Clinton Book Coming Out

Hillary Clinton's Wiki-Leaked Goldman Sachs Speeches Get Book Date ... In January

 OR Books, an independent progressive publisher based in New York City, announced a January launch for the book, “Hillary Clinton: The Goldman Sachs Speeches.”The publisher has taken five of Clinton speeches — including the three she gave to Goldman Sachs for $675,000 a pop — and added on an introduction from the man responsible for leaking them, WikiLeaks founder (and the new darling of the alt-right) Julian Assange.

OR Books co-publisher Colin Robinson says it could print the Democratic candidate’s speeches in full under the legal doctrine of “fair use,” which allows the publication of copyrighted material for a limited or “transformative” purpose
