In the motion picture industry, where traditional film stock is used, the industry standard filming and projection formats are 24 frames per second (FPS). Shooting at a slower frame rate would create fast motion when projected, while shooting at a frame rate higher than 24 FPS would create slow motion when projected. Other examples of historical experiments in frame rates that were not widely accepted were Maxivision 48 and Showscan, developed by 2001: A Space Odyssey special effects creator Douglas Trumbull.
The silent home movie film frame rate was 16 FPS or 18 FPS for 16 mm and standard 8 mm, 18 FPS for Super 8. Sound speed was normally 24 FPS for all formats.

Lost electricity twice today . . . really played havoc with my computer. Kicked me off the internet and I had a heck of a time getting connected again. Finally got it worked out a few seconds ago. Go in as an outpatient tomorrow morning to get blood. My count so low I am like the walking dead! Will take most of the day.
Joe S answered:
I feel the need to answer a few of the piercing questions plaguing America today. First the answer to today's quiz is 24. Thank you very much, I looked it up.
Next the answer to a question posed by Michelle in AZ, a little further down the page. "Can we reverse the ageing process by putting young blood into older people?" It seems to have worked out quite well for the Vampires.
And finally, the final question that always seems to be the final question. Well, it's a British question actually, but a great many Americans seem to consider themselves British and long for an American Royal Family. So the question is, "Does the chewing gum lose it's flavor on the bedpost over night?" And the answer is, yes. Yes it does, put it in the "dust bin."

"The more racist stuff Trump says, the better he does in the poll," Hughley said, adding that if Trump says the N-word next, he'll be "elected tomorrow."
"Trump being president is like Flavor Flav winning a spelling bee," the former sitcom star said.
Hughley said the real estate mogul has turned the whole presidential race into a reality show and that it's kind of pathetic that real candidates are getting their "ass whooped by Donald Trump in a political event."
Since his death in 2011, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has been the subject of documentaries, books, a film and even a graphic novel.
Now the technology pioneer will be the focus of an upcoming opera.
In front of the Sangre de Cristo mountains in northern New Mexico, the Santa Fe Opera announced Wednesday that its latest commission will be based on the man who helped revolutionize personal computers, the music business and, of course, brought the world the iPhone.
"The Revolution of Steve Jobs" will premiere during the company's 2017 season and will be written by composer Mason Bates and librettist Mark Campbell, opera leadership said. According to the opera, the production will examine Jobs facing his own mortality and circles back to the events and people in his past that shaped and inspired him.
The move comes as New Mexico in recent years has worked to honour it connections to technology innovators like Jobs and Microsoft founder Bill Gates. For example, a Route 66 motor lodge in Albuquerque where Bill Gates and Paul Allen lived while launching Microsoft Corp. is being redeveloped into apartments as part of a neighbourhood revival project.
Five years after weight loss surgery, obese patients may regain many of the pounds they initially shed, a new study from Israel suggests.
While surgery remains more effective for lasting weight loss than alternatives such as dieting and exercising, said lead study author Dr. Andrei Keidar, the study findings suggest that doctors still have more to learn about which patients will get the most benefit from operations and what strategies can make the initial results stick.
Surgical weight loss has gained traction in recent years, but it is not risk free. And with these particular operations patients can become malnourished.
After one year, the participants still in the study had lost 77 percent of their body weight on average, but they slid back toward to their original weight as time passed. At three years, they were still down by 70 percent of their original weight, and just 56 percent at five years.
About half of the patients with diabetes experienced complete remission after one year, with their previously elevated blood sugar returning to a healthy range common in people without the disease. In this, too, patients backslid over time, with just 38 percent in complete remission after three years and only 20 percent at five years.
Iowa and New Hampshire are still on the horizon - but first there's the Fox primary, and the buildup to this week's first Republican presidential debate shows that the influence of Fox News Channel on the GOP selection process is stronger than ever.
The musical chairs-like rules for participation in Thursday's televised debate required candidates to reach a certain threshold in opinion polls, making national exposure to an interested audience vital at a stage in the campaign when candidates are usually shaking hands in early primary states. And where better to find that audience than on Fox News Channel?
The 17 candidates -only 10 of whom are invited to the prime-time debate - made a total of 273 separate appearances on Fox News in May, June and July, according to a count by liberal-leaning group Media Matters for America. Six hopefuls - Donald Trump, Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Carly Fiorina and Rick Perry - have appeared 20 times or more each on Fox or Fox Business Channel, the network said. Besides interviews, candidates have joined the panel of talk shows like "Outnumbered" or "The Five."
Part of the draw for candidates is the size of Fox's audience: second only to shark-obsessed Discovery among cable networks in July and typically larger than that of CNN and MSNBC combined in prime time. And there's the guarantee of finding like-minded voters; 47 percent of voters who described themselves as "consistently conservative" said Fox was their main source of news about government and politics, according to a 2014 survey by the Pew Research Center.
Elena Larea plays the part of a dead crocodile during a protest against animal cruelty outside a luxury Hermes store in Mexico City, Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015. The sign behind reads in Spanish "Hermes, abandon cruelty! Don't use crocodile skins." The animal rights groups PETA says crocodiles and caimans are kept in filthy pools for years before workers cut their necks and destroy their brains with metal bars.

Two cast members and the production company of the Discovery Channel reality show "Alaska: The Last Frontier" have been charged with using a helicopter for a black bear hunt.
A former production company employee tipped troopers off about the illegal hunt, Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters told the Alaska Dispatch News on Tuesday.
The helicopter flight and bear hunt were filmed for the show near Homer in mid-September 2014, according to charging documents. Atz Lee Kilcher, 38; his wife, Cristina Jane Kilcher, 40; and an arm of Discovery Studios called Wilma TV Inc. were each charged on July 13 with a misdemeanor hunting violation.
Under Alaska law, it is illegal to use a helicopter to hunt for game. That includes transporting hunters, hunting gear or unprocessed game to or from the field.
"Alaska: The Last Frontier" began in 2011 and follows the Kilcher family as they live off the land in an isolated community outside Homer. The cast includes Atz Kilcher, father to Atz Lee and singer-songwriter Jewel.
Three men who worked on the 2012 presidential campaign of former U.S. Congressman Ron Paul were charged on Wednesday with concealing payments to an Iowa state senator who switched his endorsement to Paul.
The U.S. Justice Department said Jesse Benton, 37, of Louisville, Kentucky; John Tate, 53, of Warrenton, Virginia; and Dimitrios Kesari, 49, of Leesburg, Virginia; were charged with conspiracy in making false statements to the Federal Election Committee. Benton is also charged with making false statements to the FBI and Kesari is also accused of obstruction of justice.
Kent Sorenson, a Republican former state senator in Iowa, had been chairman of Michele Bachmann's Iowa campaign in 2011 but in December of that year switched his support to Paul shortly before Iowa's key caucuses. Both Paul, a former U.S. representative from Texas, and Bachmann, then a U.S. representative from Minnesota, were seeking the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.
Sorenson, who has pleaded guilty to related charges, was given more than $70,000 in concealed payments, the Justice Department said.
A bird sits on a piece of the metal skeleton of the Atomic Bomb Dome peace memorial in Hiroshima, western Japan, August 6, 2015. Japan on Thursday marks the 70th anniversary of the attack on Hiroshima, where the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb on August 6, 1945, killing about 140,000 by the end of the year in a city of 350,000 residents. It was the world's first nuclear attack. The Atomic Bomb Dome, or Genbaku Dome, was the only structure left standing in this district of the city and has been preserved as a peace memorial.

The hitchhiking robot that became a social media darling as it documented its travels throughout the world likely hasn't taken its last ride, its co-creators said Wednesday.
Frauke Zeller and David Harris Smith said they're mulling future travel plans for HitchBot despite the fact that their pet project met a violent and untimely end on the streets of Philadelphia over the weekend.
The child-sized, solar-powered machine, which successfully thumbed rides across Canada and travelled parts of Europe without incident, was left in a pile of trash with its arms lying nearby and its head missing altogether.
Zeller said the components that survived the attack are currently being shipped home to Canada. The bot's future is uncertain, but Zeller said it's entirely possible it could wind up back on the road.
"We could either build another HitchBot and send it out on the streets again in Philadelphia next year, or also start a project with schools. Basically have HitchBot go from school to school," Zeller said in a telephone interview.
Merle Haggard has changed his stance on pot smoking since his "Okie From Muskogee" days. The former anti-hippy and right wing hero is now putting the bake back in Bakersfield with Willie Nelson on their recent collaboration, "It's All Gone to Pot."
"At the time I wrote 'Okie From Muskogee,' I didn't smoke," Haggard tells Men's Journal. "It was '68. I had been brainwashed like most of America about what marijuana would and wouldn't do. I thought it was responsible for the flower children walking around with their mouths open. It was not so. But if a guy doesn't learn anything in 50 years, there's something wrong with him. I've learned a lot about it, and America has, too."
It wasn't drugs but attempted robbery that landed the California native behind bars in 1957. It was in San Quentin Prison where he would eventually hear Johnny Cash perform, partly inspiring his decision to join the prison band and turn his life around to pursue a music career.
"I believe that if you break the law and get caught, you should go to jail," reasons the 78-year-old country icon. "But we're in a hard time in America now, with all the trouble with police in the cities. Prison is the biggest business in America. Bigger than marijuana! You got the money, you can build a prison out in Nevada and it'll be filled before you finish building it. That's a fact, and that's a shame."
