Chef du commando du Mossad qui enleva Eichmann Peter Zvi Malkin (Hebrew: ??? ??????), (May 27, 1927 – March 1, 2005), was an Israeli secret agent, and member of the Mossad intelligence agency. Malkin was part of the team that captured Adolf Eichmann in Argentina in 1960 and brought him to Israel to stand trial. Malkin was born in Lower Silesia, a province of Germany prior to 1945, currently Zolkiewka, Poland, to an observant Jewish family. In 1936, his family fled to Palestine to escape the rising tide of German anti-Semitism; his sister, Fruma, and her three children who remained behind with 150 other relatives, died in the Holocaust. At the age of twelve, Malkin was recruited into the Haganah. In 1950, he was invited to join the new Jewish state's fledgling security service as an explosives expert.  Mossad career Malkin spent 27 years in the Mossad, first as an agent and later as Chief of Operations. As Chief of Operations he played a major role in the capture of Israel Beer, a Soviet spy who had penetrated the highest levels of Israeli government. He also led an operation against Nazi nuclear rocket scientists who assisted an Egyptian weapons development program after World War II. Malkin's most famous mission was on May 11, 1960, when he and a team of Mossad agents led by Rafi Eitan captured Adolf Eichmann, a top Nazi official who played a principal role in organizing the Shoah (Nazi Holocaust), in Argentina. "One moment, sir" were the words he uttered as he approached Eichmann on the shoulder, before wrestling him to the ground and putting him in the getaway car. In 1989, Israeli newspaper Maariv cited him as "one of the greatest figures ever in the history of the Mossad." Israeli journalist Uri Dan called him a "an extraordinary secret warrior." He is said to have been involved in the search for Yossele Schumacher in the 1960s .  Later years After retiring in 1976, Peter Malkin devoted his time to painting, a profession he used as a cover during his Mossad years. He has also authored five books, and served as a private international consultant on anti-terrorism methods. The movie, "The Man Who Captured Eichmann" (1996) starring Robert Duvall as Adolf Eichmann, was based on his book. Malkin spent his last years in New York with his wife Roni and their three children. He died on March 1, 2005. 
Me as a painting
I took this self portrait on my back porch and totally hated it. Then I saw the light on my red top and my neck and I kind of liked it. I used some feature on my photo editing program to soften up the harsh reality of my aging mug, which I hardly recognize these days. But all my life, my lips have been the only feature of mine I could wholeheartedly love. Isn't it stupid when you live your life admiring only two square inches of yourself? (I won't bother translating that into metric.) So if someone were to offer to paint me, this is the view I would offer. I guess I'm lucky I never had a little girl, in some ways. How on earth do you raise a girl to love her body in this culture? Yeah, I'm being a bit morbid lately. I'll try to snap out of it and get back to shooting something happy.

Photoshop Elements 8 Tips for Getting Started
Amazon-exclusive content from author Rob Sheppard
1. Work the photo, not the program. It is easy to get overwhelmed by the software and forget what is really important -- your photograph! Do what you need for the photograph, not what you think you should do in the program.
2. Save the originals. Whenever you open a photo into Photoshop Elements, immediately do a “Save As” to create a new image file for you to work on. This allows you to preserve the original file so that it cannot be affected directly and you will always have it if you run into problems with your work later.
3. Always back up your photos. Big external hard drives are very inexpensive now. Copy your digital photos from their folders on your computer to an external drive so that you have at least one complete copy of all of your images for back up. There is a saying in the industry, “It isn’t ‘if’ your hard drive will fail, but when.” Be prepared for that “when” by backing up your photos. Many hard drives now come with automated backup software that can help.
4. Right-click your mouse for more information. Photoshop Elements is filled with extremely helpful context-sensitive menus. They are only accessible when you right-click on a part of the interface. Right-click on the photo and you get a menu related to the tool you are using. Right-click in the layer panel and you get an entirely different menu. If you are working with a Mac, get and use a right-click mouse.
5. Remember the “undo” command. Use Control + Z for Windows and Command + Z for the Mac. This is very freeing because it means you cannot hurt your photo as you work. If anything doesn’t look right, just undo it.
6. Consider using RAW files. RAW files offer you more flexibility in processing your photos and can be processed with Photoshop Elements, in its Camera Raw software. RAW is not arbitrarily better than JPEG but can give you better results if you are willing to work with it and use its flexibility in processing.
7. Learn layers. Layers seem intimidating to many photographers, yet once you start using them, you will find all sorts of ways to use them in order to make your image processing faster, better and more flexible.
8. Never worry about knowing everything in Photoshop Elements. Learn and use what is most appropriate to your photography. After all, Ansel Adams could only make his prints bigger or smaller, lighter or darker, more or less contrasty, as well as lighter/darker or more/less contrasty in small areas, and that was about it. Yet look at what he accomplished with these “limited” controls.
9. Practice makes perfect. The way to get better with Photoshop Elements and to work faster and more efficiently with your images is to spend some time with Elements. You have to put in the time in order to save time later. Playing around with lots of photos, seeing what all the controls do, failing as well as succeeding, will all help you become a better photo processor with Elements.
10. Feel free to experiment. If you aren’t sure how a control works, or even if you should use it at all, just try it. As long as you do not save your work over the image file, you cannot hurt your photo. If you experiment and it doesn’t work, simply undo the changes or go to the Undo History panel to back up in your adjustments.
