While Balayage is the technique of painting the hair, Ombre focuses on the style of the hair. It is the transition from a lighter shade to a darker shade. Typically, Ombres work best for brunettes, but the style can is suitable for blondes too. To achieve the effect of an Ombre, there must be a smooth transition between colors.

COLUMBIA, S.C. – BID Group, a leader in the wood processing industry, today announced plans to expand operations in Dorchester County. The company’s $10.6 million investment will create 25 new jobs.
With locations throughout the United States and Canada, BID Group has more than 30 years of experience in the forestry sector, delivering a complete range of equipment, services and turnkey installations for the industry.
Located at 176 Academy Road in St. George since 2013, the company is acquiring a new computerized numerical control (CNC) horizontal milling machine and increasing the size of its current warehouse. The new CNC machine will increase the company’s manufacturing capacity.
The expansion is expected to be complete in the third quarter of 2023. Individuals interested in joining the BID Group team should visit the company’s careers page.
“We would like to thank Dorchester County and the South Carolina Department of Commerce for their contributions to and support of these investments. We are humbled and honored by their continued trust in BID. We are excited to be increasing our presence in South Carolina to support the growing needs of our highly valued customers. The multiple projects within this investment will allow the company to increase capacity, advance efficiency and improve lead time.” -BID Group Chief Financial Officer Adam Infanti
“Today’s expansion announcement by BID Group in Dorchester County further proves that South Carolina has the workforce and business environment that companies need in order to succeed. We celebrate BID Group’s decision to invest $10.6 million and create 25 new jobs.” -Gov. Henry McMaster
“The BID Group’s continued investment in South Carolina adds to the success of our ever-growing manufacturing and agribusiness sectors. We congratulate the BID Group on their success and look forward to watching them thrive for many years to come.” -Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III
“Dorchester County congratulates BID Group on their expansion and thanks them for their ongoing confidence and investment in Dorchester County.

May 5, 2022 — The analysis of the millions of artworks that are part of the cultural and artistic heritage is a job that seems impossible for human beings, but not so for supercomputers. The European project Saint George on a Bike, coordinated by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) in collaboration with the Europeana Foundation, started in 2019 with the aim of using the MareNostrum 4 supercomputer to train Artificial Intelligence models, which help disseminate among citizens the wealth of European cultural heritage and recognition of its value as well as the understanding and awareness of its conservation and promotion. The project aims to generate automatic descriptions of hundreds of thousands of images from various cultural heritage repositories using natural language processing and deep learning algorithms.
In a second phase of the project, the researchers launched a crowdsourcing campaign in Zooniverse, a citizen science portal based on open peer-to-peer collaboration, to collect thousands of manual annotations that help better train these Artificial Intelligence models. The campaign is completely open and anyone can participate by accessing this link.
“Our project will allow quick access to enriched cultural information, which can serve equally well for cultural and social ends, education, tourism, and possibly for historians or anthropologists. Indirectly the citizens can benefit from better public services, when these are based on the insight that the richer metadata we produce offers – such as web accessibility for the visually impaired or narratives that can expose social injustice or integration and gender issues through cultural heritage corpora and help create a more tolerant European identity” says Maria-Cristina Marinescu, BSC researcher and Saint George on a Bike project coordinator.
To date, no AI system has been built and trained to help in the description of cultural heritage images with the maximum coverage of topics, objects and iconographic relations while factoring in the time-period and scene composition rules for sacred iconography from the 14th to the 18th centuries.
“This ambitious project interprets images according to their context for the first time, and thus seeks to give machines a certain common sense, which is one of the great barriers to Artificial Intelligence today” says Joaquim Moré, BSC researcher and project’s expert in computational linguistics. “For instance, For example, when it first identifies a motorbike in a 15th century painting of St George, it corrects itself and identifies the most plausible object for the period, which is a horse. This adaptation will be also made according to the cultural context. For example, in the Japanese cultural context, what in Europe we would call a knight would be a samurai” he concludes.
The project has also launched an inspiring video (below) that highlights the use of Artificial Intelligence to detect images and compositions never seen before, the extraction of relations between thousands of images or the opportunity to organize virtual exhibitions with related paintings from all over the world.

A team of Chinese scientists has discovered a giant new sinkhole with a forest at its bottom.
The sinkhole is 630 feet (192 meters) deep, according to the Xinhua news agency, deep enough to just swallow St. Louis' Gateway Arch. A team of speleologists and spelunkers rappelled into the sinkhole on Friday (May 6), discovering that there are three cave entrances in the chasm, as well as ancient trees 131 feet (40 m) tall, stretching their branches toward the sunlight that filters through the sinkhole entrance.
"This is cool news," said George Veni, the executive director of the National Cave and Karst Research Institute (NCKRI) in the U.S., and an international expert on caves. Veni was not involved in the exploration of the cave, but the organization that was, the Institute of Karst Geology of the China Geological Survey, is NCKRI's sister institute.
The discovery is no surprise, Veni told Live Science, because southern China is home to karst topography, a landscape prone to dramatic sinkholes and otherworldly caves. Karst landscapes are formed primarily by the dissolution of bedrock, Veni said. Rainwater, which is slightly acidic, picks up carbon dioxide as it runs through the soil, becoming more acidic. It then trickles, rushes and flows through cracks in the bedrock, slowly widening them into tunnels and voids. Over time, if a cave chamber gets large enough, the ceiling can gradually collapse, opening up huge sinkholes.
"Because of local differences in geology, climate and other factors, the way karst appears at the surface can be dramatically different," he said. "So in China you have this incredibly visually spectacular karst with enormous sinkholes and giant cave entrances and so forth. In other parts of the world you walk out on the karst and you really don't notice anything. Sinkholes might be quite subdued, only a meter or two in diameter. Cave entrances might be very small, so you have to squeeze your way into them."
In fact, 25% of the United States is karst or pseudokarst, which features caves carved by factors other than dissolution, such as volcanics or wind, Veni said. About 20% of the world's landmass is made of one of these two cave-rich landscapes.
The new discovery took place in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, near Ping'e village in the county of Leye, according to Xinhua. Guangxi is known for its fabulous karst formations, which range from sinkholes to rock pillars to natural bridges and have earned the region UNESCO world heritage site designation.
The sinkhole's interior is 1,004 feet (306 m) long and 492 feet (150 m) wide, Zhang Yuanhai, a senior engineer with the Institute of Karst Geology, told Xinhua. The Mandarin word for such enormous sinkholes is "tiankeng," or "heavenly pit," and the bottom of the sinkhole did indeed seem like another world. Chen Lixin, who led the cave expedition team, told Xinhua that the dense undergrowth on the sinkhole floor was as high as a person's shoulders. Karst caves and sinkholes can provide an oasis for life, Veni said.
"I wouldn't be surprised to know that there are species found in these caves that have never been reported or described by science until now," Lixin said.
In one West Texas cave, Veni said, tropical ferns grow abundantly; the spores of the ferns were apparently carried to the sheltered spot by bats that migrate to South and Central America.
Not only do sinkholes and caves offer refuge for life, they are also a conduit to aquifers, or deep stores of underground water. Karst aquifers provide the sole or primary water source for 700 million people worldwide, Veni said. But they're easily accessed and drained — or polluted.
"Karst aquifers are the only types of aquifers that you can pollute with solid waste," Veni said. "I've pulled car batteries and car bodies and barrels of God-knows-what and bottles of God-knows-what out of the active cave stream."
The new discovery brings the number of sinkholes in Leye County to 30, according to Xinhua. The same researchers have previously discovered dozens of sinkholes in Northwest China's Shaanxi province and a cluster of interconnected sinkholes in Guangxi, China Daily reported.
