Depends where the sand is in the camera. The safest bet is to send the camera to the manufacturers service center to be taken care of otherwise you run the risk of doing damage to your camera. This is particularly true if sand is in the camera itself. Trying to remove the sand yourself could result in a scratched mirror or sensor if an SLR. If a lens then a damp cloth and wiping down the exterior of the barrel is fine. Otherwise to get sand off the front or rear element of a lens use an air blower.
If the camera matters to you then its best to let the manufacturers service center take care of removing the sand.

It's not perfect: it doesn't really open in the video's youtube page, but instead it links to the video in a full window.
Besides castration and estrogen pills or injections, there is nothing you can do. Your hair growth rate and thickness is due to your testosterone levels and nothing else, and you do not want to mess with your hormones unless you seek a sex change. If you feel your time is wasted, buy a better razor or practice better time management, else take comfort in the fact that somewhere, out there, a guy with a patchy and slow-growing beard envies you. [In fact, their Quora questions are probably listed to the right.]

DVD Player I don't think can do this, VLC for Mac can. Under Video select "Float on Top" and under "Extended Controls" change your opacity to fit.
Developing for the iPhone is a little different than picking up any other environment because it usually entails both learning a new language, a new SDK and a totally new environment. I say usually because most developers don't have Mac Development experience.
- Start with a Book. I usually recommend 'jumping' into new environments but iOS development can be so overwhelming at times that I recommend starting this one with a book. One book I've found well suited for the task is "Beginning iPhone Development", here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-…. It takes you through all the necessary evil, lays out things in a nice fashion and at an adequate pace and leaves you with a comfortable feeling whenever you move up the ladder.
- Avoid Online-Content when starting. I recommend avoiding online content for a while, at least until you've developed a basic understanding of all the moving parts. The reason is that there's so much content out there that its easy to drown and feel lost.
- Understand the Basics. Make sure you get that value out of the book. Spend some good valuable time understanding the building-blocks of an iOS app. Be it the various GUI elements, how events work, what can be done using the GUI Editor, some CoreGraphics and what requires OpenGL.
- Understand Objective-C. There's another good resource for learning and understanding Obective-C, its called 'From C++ to Objective-C', here's the link: www.chachatelier.fr/programmation/fichiers/cpp-objc-en.pdf
- Ecosystem. Take some time to familiarize yourself with the iPhone App Development Eco-System, think about what sort of App you want to develop and what resources/examples/people/success-stories/failure-stories are out there waiting for you to learn from.
- Learning from Video. I haven't tried but many people recommend a course that was/is taught at Stanford University titled… "iPhone Application Development". Luckily enough its available in iTunes, search for "CS193P".
