A skateboard has the perfect form factor for a soft panel light, which is why Aputure is launching a new Skateboard light for filmmakers on the go called the Brightboard. Details below:  Keeping your kit mobile is key in the fast paced world of production and I’m usually trying to optimize my gear for travel. Having a light with built-in wheels or wheels with a built-in light means I’m able to move from location to location quickly and the Brightboard also fits in the overhead of most aircraft or in the storage compartment of Amtrak.

Ruth Chepngetich’s Marathon Hot Streak Continues: 3rd Fastest Marathoner in History Wins World Title in Brutally Hot Conditions

At the end of one of the hottest marathons in history, Ruth Chepngetich of Kenya — who earlier this year became the third-fastest woman in history by running 2:17:08 in Dubai — was the last woman standing, earning the first gold medal of the 2019 IAAF World Athletics Championships in 2:32:43, the slowest winning time in world championship history. 2017 champion Rose Chelimo of Bahrain grabbed the silver in 2:33:46 as Commonwealth champion Helalia Johannes became the first Namibian woman to medal at Worlds by taking bronze in 2:34:15.

Carrie Dimoff took 13th in 2:44:35 while Kelsey Bruce, who ran for LetsRun at the World Cross Country Championships in March, finished 38th in 3:09:37. The conditions were as brutal as advertised. You can’t always tell the story of a marathon by looking at the results, but in this one, you could. A woman who ran 2:17 earlier this year ran 2:32 today and s...
