Dynamic LINQ - Using strings to sort by properties and child object properties

I stumbled across the Dynamic LINQ Library today and can't figure out why more people aren't talking about it. It's an awesome little library that allows you to dynamically generate LINQ expressions from strings, which is perfect for things like sorting collections by object property names passed as querystring parameters to web api controllers, it even allows you to sort by child object property names!

C# - Get time zone and UTC offset from latitude and longitude (GPS coordinates)

I recently set up an Instagram feed for a travel blog and found that the Instagram API only supplies the UTC created date/time of each image, and doesn't supply the user's UTC Offset (as the Twitter API does), so the only thing you have to work with are the latitude and longitude (lat/long) coordinates to find out the timezone and UTC Offset of where the image was posted.
