Sharpening a photo digitally can be a helpful way to bring out the textures in a soft image, but sharpening too much can create an annoying ‘ghost’ effect around hard lines. Here’s a better way to do it in Photoshop without overemphasizing the hard edges.
Without question, the modern era of the most famous race in the world—the 24 Hours of Le Mans—has belonged to Audi. That comes to an end this year. This is the way things had to go.
There are a lot of different conspiracy theories about what happened to the Australian government in November of 1975. In a surprise move, the ultra liberal Prime Minister Gough Whitlam was fired by a lone man using parliamentary procedures that no one had expected. That man was John Kerr. And Gizmodo has now obtained the CIA’s internal biographic report on him.

The New Democratic Party of Canada (NDP) is trying to drum up support for a motion that, if adopted by the Liberals, would provide free prescription birth control to women and trans people.
After successfully pushing the Conservative government to remove the federal tax on tampons last year, NDP MP Irene Mathyssen is now setting her sights on the high cost of birth control.
"The onus for birth control is always placed on women, or most often, although some men do take responsibility for their fertility, but it still comes back to women most often," Mathyssen told VICE News. "And just like the tax on tampons, it's not particularly fair that , and the issue is exactly the same. We will have a large chunk of people who are opting for surgical abortion because they do not have access to the drugs."
The NDP will have to convince the Liberals to support Mathyssen's motion, but the MP says that won't be hard.
"He's a feminist isn't he?" she said of Justin Trudeau. "And isn't this 2016? It's time that we caught up with the clinical and medical needs of women."
