How To Take Care of a Frenchie ( French Bulldogs)

Hi everybody! I’m Lila sketches and this is how to take care of a French Bulldog when I first want to get a French Bulldog. I really wanted some sort of tutorial or post to follow to know how to take care of their weird features like their wrinkles the short nose the bat ears. I’ve learned a ton since having a French Bulldog for over a year now and I’d like to share it with you.  

Keep Them Cool

First of all, why I got a Frenchie there are small dogs their great apartment dogs. They have weird personalities. They’re these little weirdos and they are so adorable. They’re also very snuggly they’re always by your side. If you’re looking for a cuddle buddy. This breeze is perfect for you. A few things you need to know before you get a french bulldog, first of all, keep them cool.

So they have short notice and see how short her nose so looks at her profile meaning. They overheat faster so to keep Mabel cool. When we’re outside if she starts panting. We will give her water we will throw cold water on her. We’ll give her ice cube. It’s too hot outside. We don’t let her outside. If you want a daughter, you can go on a hike with French bulldogs are probably not the dog for you.

We’ve taken Mabel on hikes with us before and usually, she’ll walk for a little bit and then we put her in the back row back with her head popped out and carry her the rest of the way.

Clean Them Properly

How to clean your Frenchie? There’s a lot of parts to Mabel that we have to clean she has these big bat ears and they’re open all the time. There are all kinds of dust and junks getting into there. We use an ear cleaner put a few drops into the ear and you massage it like this for maybe a minute and then you let her shake it out and then you take cotton balls and clean all the junk out.

The next wrinkles so Mabel doesn’t have as many wrinkles as maybe an average Frenchie. Sometimes French cheese will get junk collecting in between these wrinkles. If you have a light-colored Frenchie. They can get tear stains and there are special products for that. The next thing we actively and on Mabel is something you probably haven’t heard of and probably wish that you never knew about French cheese has something called a tail pocket.

French bulldogs are born with these little tails. They’re not clipped. They’re born like that but on some French bulldogs their tails grow directly into their but basically and there’s a space in there you have to clean it. This is weird. I’m trying to explain it. Mabel’s tail looks like this cute little corkscrew and it is tight against her skin but you can lift it and underneath. There is an area you have to make sure you clean.

It’s not her butthole. It’s all above her bubble since the tail is tight against it. Bacteria can get under there it gets moist under there. They can break out in a rash under there which navel has before so you have to make sure to keep that clean. The next thing we do for Mabel gives her eyedrops Mabel gets eyedrops in the morning and at night they keep her eyes healthy and they keep debris out it washes the debris out.

The next thing we do with Mabel gives her bath we use a special shampoo that we got from the vet. Which is good for Mabel’s sensitive skin many Frenchie’s have sensitive skin Mabel has experienced some rashes on her stomach before just from rolling around in grass the shampoo really helps with that also when you bathe your Frenchie make sure to put cotton balls inside of their ears.

Since their ears are so open water can get into there and that can cause an infection.

Get them a Harness

My next topic gets your Frenchie a harness. French Bulldogs have a very particular shape French Bulldogs have big heads big fronts of their bodies and then small back legs and small back to their bodies harnesses help them a lot to pull in the right place. When you’re walking near Frenchie and they try to pull you. They’re not going to choke themselves.

They Can’t Swim

My next topic is careful around water Frenchie’s, for the most part, cannot swim. Because of the shape of their body. They’re very top-heavy. They pretty much will sink. There are some exceptions some French Bulldogs can actually swim on their own. Mabel is not one of those dogs. They do make life jackets for dogs. So you can get one for your Frenchie if you want to bring them swimming.

Feed Them Good Food

Feed your French bulldogs really good food. You want to keep them healthy may by Mabel a super healthy natural type of dog food from Petco. There’s no grain in there because dogs aren’t made to digest grain. Mabel’s a favorite snack is carrots and I think it is the best dog food for french bulldogs.

They are Clingy

My next topic Frenchie’s our clingy. They always want to be at your side. If I’m in a certain room Mayville always follows me into that room. If I go into the bathroom Mabel will sit at the door and whine until I come out. They’re just very loving and they want to be neither human at all time. Let them love you bring them with you. I actually bring Mabel to work with me every day.

I know that’s not possible for everyone. If you’re going out to eat. There’s a lot of places where you can sit outside and they allow you to bring dogs, especially in Los Angeles. If you’re planning on getting a dog that you can just kind of leave at home all day and come check up on for a couple hours. French bulldogs are probably not the ones for you in fact dogs are probably not a good thing for you.

I hope this is helpful for me to know if you have any further questions about having a French Bulldog, then take the comments in my blog. Thank you for reading and please follow me.

5 Tips to Get Started in Video Production For Beginner

So how do you get started in video production whether you want to do weddings, commercials, or just freelance video work? Well, in this post, I’m gonna be sharing my five best tips, coming up.

Hey, what’s up, Sean here with TheDukes, bringing you the best tips and tools for building your influence with online video. And on this blog, we do a lot of tech gear reviews, as well as Q & A videos, just like this one. So if you’re new here, consider subscribing [email protected] asks, “Not sure if you have any experience “in this field, but how should I get started “doing wedding videography/photography? “Or in general, how do I get the word “around my area that I’m new in the film business?” Thanks for the question.

Volunteer or Intern

So when it comes to the creative industry, whether that’s video, film, design, there’s really a lot of different paths for building your influence, your skills, and your career. But I kinda wanna share some tips from my personal journey. And the first one is, volunteering or interning. The way I actually got started in video production, before I started video production later in my life, was volunteering and actually interning at a church. Men of Marysville, January is your month with two awesome.

Gonna be limited. 7:00 p.m. is when it starts, and you’ve gotta get there early. And you can actually see from some of this footage we were doing video announcements. And so I was learning how to shoot videos, edit videos, audio, you know lighting. I was learning all these different things hands on. And the cool thing about interning and volunteering was I didn’t have any money right. And so maybe you can relate to being broke and not being able to invest in gear.

So I was able to get my hands on the gear that the church owned. So I was able to get the experience, get the editing software, all of these different things so I could level up my skills. So your goal here with number one is to get experience in your specific area. So maybe ask the question, is there somebody who’s actually doing wedding videography or photography in your local area that you could reach out to and say, “Hey, can I assist you, could I follow you and shadow you for a shoot? “I’ll carry your bags, I’ll help out, I won’t get in the way.” That is one of the quickest ways to level up your experience fast.

say Yes to Everything

Tip number two says yes to everything, including unpaid work. Yes, does that mean work for free? It does, because again, early on you really wanna master your craft. And so I’m not saying that you should only ever do free work. But when you’re just starting, you wanna get as much experience as possible. And so, as I mentioned, I was volunteering for free at my local church in kind of North Seattle area for years, back around 2003 to about 2009.

But then eventually I started a business called Clear Vision Media. And then I started to do either sometimes free work but at this point even low paying projects. Because I wanted to get my portfolio built, get my experience going. And so in those days, I mean I did random stuff. I did a commercial for a Mexican Restaurant, I shot my cousin’s wedding. I remember doing a blues concert.

I did some hip-hop concerts, and actually, I’ll put a link to my video production channel. ‘Cause that’s still on YouTube. We’ll link it up in the description as well. If you wanna kinda check it out to just get an idea of just some of the random stuff that I did. But all of that was so important in rounding out my skills as a videographer.

Built Your Portfolio

Tip number three is built your portfolio. So in addition to potentially doing some free work, volunteering, and maybe interning, if you’re just getting started, I wanna encourage you to make sure you’re building your portfolio online. And so that’s actually one of the reasons why I started my Clear Vision Media channel, was not because anybody was expecting me to upload videos there, but I wanted to have a place where my body of work could be collected.

So ask yourself, where are you building your portfolio online? Is it a YouTube channel? Or maybe it’s like a Behance account, or like there are these other options for really building up your body of work. And as you can see from these first three tips, it is all about getting as much experience as possible. I love this quote from Dale Carnegie that says, “Learning is an active process.

“We learn by doing. “Only knowledge that is used sticks in our mind.” So when I think about how did I learn video editing or even photography, or these different things? I learned it most by being hands on. And actually, today I’ve posted well over 2,000 videos online. That sounds a lot, but I’ve been doing this for like about 15 years. And that’s not just my YouTube channels, but for clients or for a church I was working at, tons of different content that I posted online. And it’s by doing that much volume that I was able to level up my skills the most.

Study the Greats in Your Niche

Number four studies the greats. And so, identify the best of the best in your industry, in your specific topic. So maybe the best of the best photographers, but not necessarily general photography. You know, if you don’t wanna do landscape photography, but you wanna do weddings. Who are the best of the best wedding videographers and photographers in your; that there are, that you can follow, learn from. And additionally, you should be doing this while you’re going through all the first three tips.

Like while you’re producing work, always be learning. Make a commitment to lifelong learning. And I love this quote from Michael Jackson, a legend in his own right, that he said, “Study the greats, and become even greater.” So there’s something about acknowledging and figuring out who are the greats in your industry, and how can I study and learn from them. So one example in wedding videos, and I was doing a lot of those early on, have I discovered a kind of company and a group of people called Still Motion.

And so we’ll link to them in the description below. But I remember they had tutorial videos, I would watch their work, I would study their work. They even did workshops that traveled through cities. And so we would invest in things like those. I think a huge commitment in investing in your own education when it comes to mastering your craft, is very important. Okay, so I talked about five tips, but those first four kinds of go under phase one, which I really believe is kind of that mastering your craft phase.

You know the thing is, you don’t wanna start marketing a bad product. And when you’re creating the video or you’re doing photography, it’s not that you can’t get started at wherever you are and start charging. But there’s something about reaching a level of mastery first, and then the marketing is a lot easier. Again, the best marketing in the world on bad content will really never work. So phase one is focused on those first four tips, and master your craft. And then phase two is get the word out. So you asked, “How do I get the word out “about my new business?”

Use Social Media and Youtube

And one tip that I’ll give here, point number five, is social media and YouTube. It’s amazing that we live in an age that is very advantageous for videographers, for photographers. Because what better place to grow your influence as a photographer than Instagram. You know, what better place to grow your influence as a videographer than YouTube? These are free platforms where you can publish your work, build your influence, and have that lead to new business and new people discovering you to hire you.

And so let’s talk about a very practical example of this. So when I was growing my business, Clear Vision Media, and I was doing wedding videos, I did a video that I titled Bellingham Wedding Video. Now Bellingham’s about two hours north of Seattle in Washington State. And I did a wedding there, and I put that video on my YouTube channel, and I titled it in a certain way so that it would get discovered by people locally in that same area that might be looking for a wedding videographer.

And to this day, if you type in Bellingham wedding video, that video still ranks number one. And to this day I still get inquiries about, “Hey, can I hire you for a wedding?” Or, “We’re gonna have a wedding at the same place, “can I hire you?” And so that’s a way to position your content to get discovered that can lead to business. And then what would happen is that, again, the content itself has to be good. People watched the video and said, “I want that same quality.

“I want a wedding video like that. “I want that kind of content.” So that was step one, and then step two is making sure that they could find you. Whether that’s the email address, you know having formed on your website. So then emails come to me that say, “Hey can I hire you.” And it leads to just really a countless amount of inquiries. Another example, of course, is if you really wanna grow your influence with photography, be on Instagram and be mastering Instagram, studying Instagram, and posting amazing video clips, photo clips. Every bride is pretty much on Instagram.

So you know, if you wanna grow your wedding photography/videography business, master these social media platforms, and that would be my number one tip for getting found in your city. And if you’re interested in a few more tips on that, I have a video on how to use social media to promote your business and get more traffic to your website. So I’ll link that up on the YouTube card and in the description below. The question of the day. What are your tips for getting started in video production?

Guide Buy: The Best Hoverbroad 2017

What magnets and welcome to my review of the Beamie Hoverboards, which is considered the Best Hoverboard For Kids. How about the still thing? And beanie release wants the best a tin shower board as tested so far like a Segway. You can control the hoverboard by shifting your weight first. It’s a bit hard but once you got the hang. It’s super easy because the hoverboard has sensors inside which keep you straight up. I’ve got the black version of the solid boards but by the way.

Overview about Beamie Hoverboards

There’s a link above paragraph. Where you can check out more models this 8-inch hoverboard is pretty durable and weighs around 11 kilograms. There are two motors inside of a total power of 700 watts. So you can even drive pills with 30% grade and the 4400 M age 36-volt battery lasts up to 20 kilometers depending on the temperatures outside and your weight talking about the weight 120 kilograms is the limit.

They have a ball is made out of durable plastic and they also claim that fire assistance at least to some point and although the battery in the is me is a high-quality LG battery. The chassis looks really good the shiny black plastic body and the LEDs. Which light up when you drive with definite eye catches at the top we have LEDs and at the bottom. There is the charging port the hoverboard comes in a huge box of the user manual the power supply.

Some rubber bumpers those are needed to avoid scratches when you fall off your hoverboard a pocket. Unfortunately, you have to glue them on your own to the body and there is no glue included. So I used some two-component to fix them on the body, but before you start doing denim make sure that the surface is completely clean otherwise. It will fall off after some time included power supply can charge the hoverboard from zero to hundred percent in around two to three hours and has a status of early.

But no worries guys, this is no cheap Chinese Cheng and it’s totally safe all that certified and tested in Germany. So you can be sure that this how aboard has high quality and they even included an overcharge protection and an NTC temperature control so your battery won’t catch fire the beanie has two stereo speakers that talk to you. If you reach a maximum speed it really feels kind of futuristic when the hell God says maximum speed reach door.

Tips on using Beanie Hoverboards

Please connect to your smartphone of such things. So you can also connect your smartphone or Bluetooth and stream your music and control. You have about settings and all the check important things like it battery status and reach and some statistics the app works with iOS and Android. It’s really easy to use in here you can control many things like over your speed limit sensitivity the driving force and more.

So if you’re a beginner you should probably reduce the speed and local driving force and sensitivity in general and we are just set it to things where you feel comfortable – another interesting feature is the self-test. Which you can start in the app the hoverboard will and start to check all the sensors and calibrate them as needed the maximum speed is 15 km/h which maybe sounds less than some Chinese ports, which say it presents 20.

But trust me, that’s really fast and most of the cheap hoverboards don’t reach that speed anyway. Although we have a newly invented axis which keeps the daemon more stable and track and feel smoother by driving the hoverboard also has a tilt francium sign that means if you lean too much forward and you go too fast the hovering ball will start tilting back and reduce the speed. But well this honestly felt strange and somehow it felt like it would kick me off.

Because I’m coming from a cheap Chinese how about before driving the whole board feels in general super awesome and to their responses way more responsive than my old hoverboard. Which makes turns and rotations much more fun driving uphill as I told you is no problem the motors are really strong enough to reach is around 15 kilometers from my weight of around 97 kilograms.

But only if it’s not too cold outside the maximum speed of 15 kilometers per hour is definitely more than you will need and also if you’re not so experienced please always wear a helmet and all. I can just say the be me how aboard is the far the best and most techy how about? I’ve tested the price of around 700 euros is real. But well they also checked and tested in Germany, which is quite expensive and do you have some cool features like Bluetooth and the app and all that.

But all that for your safety alright guys in the next post I’ll tell you what happened to the hoverboards and there will also be a comparison between our electric skateboard and the beanie hoverboard.

Thanks for reading and goodbye.

What Is Video? 1064 Words Count You Need To Know Video

Hey, Andrew. Michael here, and I just got back from TheDukes. The entire convention was incredible, but the whole time I was there I thought a lot about video. We all watch video and many of us work with video, but what is it? I mean, what really is video?

What Is Video?

Well, guess what, today we’re gonna take a look. To begin I think we should start all the way down at the bottom with language. What does the word record mean? The story behind the word ‘record’ is actually quite cool and makes me a little sentimental. The word ‘record’ comes from the Latin, where “re” means again and “cor” means the heart or the soul. So when you record something you are literally bringing it back into your heart, bringing it back into your soul, remembering it.

Now, that sounds really nice and pretty, but it actually had more to do with the fact that ancient people thought that the heart was we were stored memories, not the brain. The reason a sequence of still images can appear to be moving is an effect known as “beta movement.” If images move fast enough our brain can’t comprehend them as separate images and the illusion of motion is created.

Now, for a very long time we recorded moving images on photographic film, but later on, a new way of capturing moving images came about and it was called “video.” The video comes from the Latin for “I see” and rather than preserving a moving image chemically on celluloid photographic film stock, a video is an electronic representation of the moving image. Now in the real world stuff just happens. The things just continuously happen. But in the world of a camera, whether it’s film or video camera, it’s almost always in the form of frame rates.

Pictures of the world taken at a certain speed that is then quickly gone through producing, through beta movement, the illusion of movement. When a camera records at a lower frame rate, playback often looks jittery and skips like this. More frames per second mean that more information is taken every second leading to more fluidity. But that leads to a whole can of worms, which is a great transition to a conversation I had with Dylan from HouseholdHacker at TheDukes. Roll the tape.

Hey, Andrew. Michael here, and I am in the bathroom at VidCon and I’ve got a special guest. Right outside it’s Dylan from HouseholdHacker. Hey, what’s going on everyone? You know, I got a good question for you based on frame rates and what not. What would you say the human eye sees as a frame rate? Very good question. What frame rate do we see the world in with our eyeballs?

I mean, how fast does information travel from our eye to our brain? It obviously can’t be too low, because fast objects don’t look like they’re skipping, they look pretty fluid. Well, it’s a little bit of a trick question because our eyes are not cameras. Instead, they track onto objects and receive a continuous flow of photons onto the retina sending information via a chemical reaction to the brain.

Now, here’s what we do now. The visual cortex in our brain usually holds that information from our retina for about a fifteenth of a second. So if an animation moves fifteen frames a second or faster, it’s gonna look nice and fluid. But if it’s lower than fifteen frames a second, our brain’s not fooled by the beta movement and it’ll look like it’s skipping. So, basically, the faster the frame rate, the better everything’s gonna look in the end.

Here’s the thing. If frame rates get higher and higher, you wind up with an image that can actually cause headaches when people watch it on the screen. Uhm… Here, I’ll explain why. Hold this camera for a second. Oh yeah, no problem. So back to the point about our eyes tracking objects. If I do this – move my hand in front of my face and track it with my eyes – I can see my hand, it makes sense.

But at a certain point, my hand will move so fast that it’s just a blur and the reason it’s a blur is that my eye can only track so fast. And when objects move faster than our eyeballs can track, your brain adds in motion blur. That way we get a sense of movement happening, but we don’t see something like a hand randomly appearing all over the place. But this becomes a problem with new high-definition programs on big televisions because some of those programs are brought to your TV at frame rates as high as 1000 frames a second.

And objects, like a tennis ball, that normally travels so fast our eyes can’t track them and they look blurry don’t look blurry, because the camera is able to see them clearly. And when you watch that program on TV you can actually get a headache or get dizzy, so they’re having to find ways to add blur back into HD pictures.

Pretty neat, right? That’s great information. How did you learn this? That’s what I’m here for, man. Thank you. See you. See you. You know, the bathroom. You know. I heard you coming out. Did you wash your hands? Uhm, yeah. So there you go. Some cool facts about a video that I learned while I was flying to and from VidCon from New York to LA. It was a long flight, but I learned a lot and I wanna end with some numbers about YouTube specifically.

YouTube host videos from all over the world. Massive, massive amounts. In fact, every minute of the day people are uploading video to YouTube. And if you were to take all the video uploaded to YouTube at any given minute, all together it would equal 48 hours. That’s right. Two full days of video are uploaded to YouTube every single minute. You guys are part of something gigantic. All right, now later this week I’ll have a new episode of IMG. And soon enough we’ll have episodes of DONG, LÜt, it’s gonna be super cool, so be sure you share this post, so you don’t miss anything. And as always, thanks for reading. They’re not, they’re not the same person.
