Series: The Heroes of Olympus
Jason has a problem. Piper has a secret. What is going on? Leo has a way with tools. His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are all—including Leo—related to a god. Seven half-bloods shall answer the call, To storm or fire the world must fall. An oath to keep with a final breath, And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.
Who are the other four mentioned in the prophecy? The answer may lie in another camp miles away, where a new camper has shown up and appears to be the son of Neptune, god of the sea….
Tough Guy Action/Suspense Heroes and Heroines
With an ever-expanding cast of brave-hearted heroes and formidable foes, this second book in The Heroes of Olympus series offers all of the action, pathos, and humor that Rick Riordan fans crave. Annabeth is terrified. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the Romans that the visitors from Camp Half-Blood are coming in peace. In her pocket Annabeth carries a gift from her mother that came with an unnerving demand: Follow the Mark of Athena.
Avenge me. Annabeth already feels weighed down by the prophecy that will send seven demigods on a quest to find—and close— the Doors of Death. What more does Athena want from her? How many infants must have died, their frail bodies unaccustomed to the cold?
How many families starved to death, their crops destroyed by frost? Elsa may have found herself and received her sister's forgiveness, but she will be remembered as an unforgiving and cruel godhead by her people for generations. With that information, the complete and indiscriminate destruction of both battle stations, and the people on board, takes on a much more sinister sheen. It also paints the celebration and joy that follows in a new, harrowing light.
We see how love trumps life for Neo when he races to save Trinity, after she is ambushed and shot by Agent Smith. Neo flies to reach her in time and miraculously save her life. The problem is, the speed at which he flies creates a sonic boom of destruction. As the movie tells the audience over and over, if you die in the Matrix, you die for real. Read the reviews but not sure. So confusing. I bookmarked the DC Rainmaker web site many months back — primarily because of my bicycle riding, Garmin products, etc.
I recently purchased a Hero 4 Silver and have been trying to become an expert as quickly as possible. The lack of surprise on my part? Photo: link to dcrainmaker.
In watching it for a bit, it fluctuates every second or so, usually between. The USB adapter I used was capable of 2. Thanks much. In looking real quick at that unit, it looks like the Jackery Giant and output quite high up to 2.
Hi Ray! Loved the review! From this review i bought the GoPro 4 silver after doing some reading! Only a couple of months ago i also bought a garmin watch from reading your reviews. So thank you very much!! My question is about editing software for the GoPro and what you woul recommend to use that is potentially free.
Also what software allows you to crop the 4k resolution to a like you have said in part of your review. Thanks very much! The GoPro Studio is probably the easiest way to downres the footage. Other readers may have other good app examples on ways to crop the footage. Hey, very nice review.
I would be using it on roller coasters, jetski, paddle boarding, fireworks some night time stuff. Howto videos on fixing stuff etc. This is where either spare batteries or a bacpac is required. Now on camera, I personally have the silver. Unless you are seriously into film, editing and even have a screen that can display 4k resolution there is no point getting the black. Even professional filmers are opting to get the silver.
In simple form, I reccomend getting the silver and buying a battery bacpac to go along with it. Thanks, Matt. Great article. A word of caution for divers, I recently used a GP4 Silver in a genuine GP dive housing at depths up to 40 metres with the pressure underwater causing the rear door to bow such that it desroyed the LCD screen on the rear of the camera. Go Pro have been wonderful and are replacing the camera, and have advised that a new dive housing rear door without the soft pressure pads in the middle of the door will be sent to me to replace the original door on the dive housing.
This may be a new issue for divers using the GP4 silver in the current or older model dive housings. Once again, Go Pro have been very accommodating however the lack of camera whilst in transit and replacement is being sent — is annoying.
I would suggest that this may be a new issue for Go Pro given the placement of pads in the dive housing middle of rear door and the LCD on the GP4 silver would not seem to be compatible. Ray, Thank you so much for your thorough review. Here are my two questions:. Does the higher FPS of the Black help with quality in low light situations?
Or, does the FPS only matter if you want to slow down the video? Slightly off-topic, but are there any drones with a built in camera that you recommend?
Is there a slightly cheaper version with resolution? Thanks man.see
I almost broke my Hero base trying to remove it from the case. Now I wonder why I bought an additianal battery. I won a Gopro hero 3 white in a work competion. I have avoided using it on the bike because imo I think the frontal area is too big and awkward looking. But im going to the Alps in the summer so i tried it out on the road bike as aero wont be an issue on the climbs. I mounted it on the steering tube cap so the shifters are just in the frame with the WIFI off and with my Edge just infront.
However i had the issue of it interfering with my Edge GPS signal.
I rode a 8 mile road circuit which the edge has recorded fine but when it overlays over a map the first 6 miles are at least meters NE of the actual position and not recognized by Strava as segments. I have never had any issue like this before with the edge. I like the size of the Shimano but the image quality does not seem as good.
Chris, I had the exact same issue see my comment further up.

What they do to fix it is to cover the GoPro with copper tape to cut down on the emitted interference. I was able to fix it well-enough by just putting a little aluminum foil over the goPro between it and my Garmin. I made a video of the problem and my fix here: link to youtube. Whilst I understand there is no zoom or stabilisation, I can possibly resolve those issues with a Gimbal or software.
