"Actor who played baby Oscar in Ghostbusters ..." (Fox news)

It's a sad story, about a young man committing suicide, but I could not help wondering how an actor manages to play a baby.

Reading a storm warning on Net Weather today and it started with the below paragraph?

A slow-moving and increasingly negatively-tilted long-wave upper trough will overspread much of western Europe, including the UK, within this upper trough an upper vortex will slide east across the UK.  ???

I just made one of my infrequent visits to the Amateur Photographer site, and took the quiz designed to show how well you know you're (sic) photographic history. For some reason, the first question I was presented with was the first question in the photography general knowledge quiz http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/latest/photo-news/quiz-well-know-youre-photography-history-109543. I found the possible answers bewildering...

What might you do with a quick release plate?

Put it in front of your lens
Attach it to the bottom of your camera
Nikon
Canon

From memory, the questions revolved more around equipment than photography; and at least half of my answers were (at best, informed) guesses. I'm not up on modern equipment; once I arrived at a camera and lenses etc. that met my needs I stopped reading reviews etc.

I don't know what half the modern acronyms on lenses mean, and still have trouble remembering (actually, I don't remember at all!) whether in Nikon's world FX means Full Frame and hence DX is Demi Frame, or whether DX means Double Frame (which in APS terms makes it about full frame) and therefore FX means something else that I can't even guess at...

I expected photographic history to revolve around things like date of first photograph; inventor of dry plates; first colour photographs; first night photos; etc. etc. I should have known better.  :'(

I got 6/7, because I made a bad guess about AP magazine's age. Hey ho. I knew the rest though, no guessing involved.
