Broward Gym Owner Arrested Third Time After Moving Equipment Out

first_imgA Broward County gym owner has been arrested for the third time, after police say that he repeatedly failed to comply with health guidelines to limit the spread of the coronavirus.Michael Carnevale was taken into custody last Thursday and bonded out, only to be re-arrested on Friday along with his wife.His gym, which is called Fitness 1440, was shut down for at least 96 hours.Carnevale says his arrest on Friday was unjustified, since no one was actually inside the facility, and he had moved all of the workout equipment outside for members to use in the parking lot.“We really have to start asking questions is when they’re telling gym owners and yoga studio operators, your patrons have to wear a facial covering while exercising. Those of us in the fitness industry understand that’s not safe. This is something we can’t subscribe to anymore,” Carnevale explains.Courtesy: Facebook/Fitness 1440Records show that he Carnevale was originally arrested late last month. He filed a lawsuit on July 26 against Broward County for injunctive relief, claiming that his business has been negatively impacted by county emergency orders.Police officers told members of the gym in the parking lot that they could not use the equipment, since the gym has been shut down.Staff members then moved the equipment back inside the facility.CDC guidelines continue to recommend wearing a mask and social distancing as the most effective method of preventing the spread of COVID-19.last_img read more

 

SUV Crashes Into Former VNA Building

first_imgBy John Burton |RED BANK — A mid-morning crash of an SUV into the former Red Bank home of Visiting Nurse Association Health Group was continuing to snarl traffic into the early afternoon.A late model beige Chevrolet Tahoe, according to Red Bank police, traveling north on Riverside Avenue, ran into 176 Riverside Ave., a two-story structure located just south of the Route 35 traffic-signaled intersection. The crash occurred at approximately 10:20 a.m., according to police.The vehicle crashed through a window area, with the vehicle’s front portion became lodged inside the structure.According to Police Chief Darren McConnell, the SUV was being driven by an approximately 50-year-old male, accompanied by a female front-seat passenger in her 70s. The vehicle was registered to a Holmdel address. McConnell did not have their identities available.The two were transported to Riverview Medical Center to be treated for head and neck injuries that McConnell labeled “non-life threatening.”“It appears he just lost control of the vehicle,” McConnell said of the driver.The car accident attracted an unusual amount of media attention, with NJ State Police and Univision helicopters hovering overhead, and news crews from News12, CBS, NBC and other news outlets on the scene.The Middletown Emergency Services’ Special Services provided assistance and was bracing the building front facade to allow for the SUV to be removed, according to Red Bank Fire Marshal Stanley Sickels.That portion of the building was unoccupied at the time of the crash, Sickels said.The extent of the building’s damage was unknown at this point, he added.Emergency vehicles parked out front of the location, resulting in blocking one northbound traffic lane, backing up traffic on the heavily traveled Riverside Avenue.The location had been home to the Visiting Nurse Association until the organization relocated to Holmdel earlier this year.last_img read more

WAV vs. MP3: Why You Need Hi-Res Audio for Your Video

first_imgCompressed LosslessThe name “compressed lossless” may sound like a contradiction. However, the compression isn’t occurring in a way that degrades the audio itself. I like to explain it more like “space-efficient lossless.” Think of it almost like zip-compressing a music file, then unzipping it during playback. This results in a smaller file size, but the audio quality is still lossless, enabling full frequency playback. Sounds like the best of both worlds, right?Compressed lossless audio files can be anywhere from 1/2 to 1/3 the size of uncompressed audio files — or even smaller.The drawbacks for compressed lossless files are that they are the least supported (compared to uncompressed and compressed lossy.) They also require a little more computing power to play back, because they need decoding.Pros: Smaller file size, lossless, full audio frequencyCons: Less playback support on devices or editors Compressed LossyCompressed lossy audio formats are likely the most common audio files you use when listening to music. (Examples include .MP3 and .AAC.) This is because compressed lossy audio files have the most support among portable devices, and they have the smallest file sizes (meaning you can store more songs in less space.)In some cases, compressed lossy audio files can take up 1/10 the space as the same file that is uncompressed. (.MP3 compared to .WAV for example.) Compressed lossy audio files are ideal for streaming online.However, all that compression comes at a cost. The drawback is that the audio has a limited frequency range and noticeable audio artifacts when compared to a lossless format. Another drawback is that you have less range in post when it comes to editing and audio manipulation. Plus, each time you edit a compressed lossless file and re-export it, you lose more and more quality. Compressed lossy audio files are also not ideal for music loops because the codec adds short blank spaces at the beginning and end of the file.Pros: Smallest files sizes, wide playback supportCons: compressed, lossy, not ideal for editing In which we go over the different audio file formats at your disposal — and which is best for video editing.When using various audio files in your video edits, such as music tracks and sound effects, does the audio file type really make a difference? (Spoiler: yes, it does.) But the real question is why are there so many different audio file formats? And what is the purpose for each one? So let’s break that down, and in so doing, determine the best audio file formats to use when editing videos.Audio File FormatsTo help us get a grasp on the different audio file formats, I have categorized them into three main groups. Each group has a list of audio file formats most commonly associated with it. The audio groups are as follows:Uncompressed file formats: .WAV, .AIFFCompressed Lossless file formats: .FLAC, .ALAC (Apple Lossless)Compressed Lossy file formats: .MP3, .AAC, .WMA, .OGGLet’s run through the details of each format, as well as their pros and cons.UncompressedYou can think of uncompressed audio formats like the equivalent of RAW video formats. Essentially, you’re getting the audio data with no compression. This allows for a wide range of audio bit depth and sample rates. This results in better audio quality and covers the full frequency that the human ear can hear. (The original audio recording bit depth and sample rate play a big part in this equation as well. Compressed audio files converted into uncompressed audio formats don’t magically regain any audio quality.)Uncompressed audio files are typically easier to work with in audio and video editors because they require less processing to play back. And since uncompressed files contain more data, you’ll get better results when you’re manipulating the audio in post with various effects.The most common drawback for uncompressed audio files is their size, which is usually between 25-40 MB for an average song. These sizes aren’t a major issue today with transfer services like Dropbox and Google Drive (compared to 10+ years ago). However, in most cases, the uncompressed audio files are still too large to easily send as an email attachment. Also, some portable music players or devices may not support uncompressed audio formats. (Generally, most modern ones do, though.)Pros: No compression, lossless, full audio frequency, easier to work with in postCons: Large file size, some portable devices may not support itcenter_img Best audio format for video editingWhen it comes to audio formats to use when editing, you have to use what you have available. In an ideal world, use uncompressed formats such as .WAV or .AIFF whenever possible. They’ll give you the most latitude in post, and they have the most support. Plus, the audio on your video is going to get compressed during the final video export. So it helps to start with the best possible audio.In some cases, .MP3s may be all you need, and they are easy to transfer quickly.Looking for more articles on working with audio?
