Androshalforc is correct. I also second that it's not limited to DSLR, "High ISO settings" translates to "High film speed" when talking film cameras. Both are susceptible.

That one I have known for a long time. My favorite film for outdoors was Kodachrome 25 (which got exceedingly hard to get about 1985 or so).

Kodak was the maker and breaker of a huge chunk of my cities economy.

More and more we are learning to recycle
In this case a fashion company has begun making clothing out of recycled glass. the glass is broken down and extruded into fiber. the resulting clothing is made up of 25% recycled glass

What's the article of clothing and what was the glass used for originally

Rang an ex-girlfriend of mine who is doing a PhD in fashion (for such courses exist!) and she had no idea. So at a guess i'd say a skirt, made from recycled beer bottles.

I learned today that a Doctor did X to discover that the correct treatment for his cancer was not the standard treatment for his cancer, but the standard treatment for a different cancer. This is groundbreaking in that it may point a different way for treating many cancers in the future.

What is X is the statement above?

im confused the correct treatment of his cancer is the standard treatment for a different cancer so doing the same thing proves you should do different things?

Currently standard treatment for cancer is based on the location of cancer. Therefore the standard treatment for his cancer is not what worked. What worked was the standard treatment for a cancer in a different location.

I did my Doctorate in Cancer Chemistry, but i'm not sure where to start here.

Depends on the cancer, did he use a molecular targeted approach? Or maybe protein-protein interaction profiling.
