FILM DESCRIPTION: A top London cop who is so good at his job that he makes his fellow officers look like slackers by comparison is "promoted" to serve in the sleepy village of Sandford in this contemporary action comedy from the creators of Shaun of the Dead. Police constable Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) always gets his man, but these days his impeccable record seems to be more indicative of his fellow officers' shortcomings than his own formidable skills as a keeper of the peace. Loathe to stand idly by as their once respectable track record is steadily soiled by the hyper-competent actions of one lone overachiever, Sergeant Angel's superiors at the Met soon determine to remedy their problem by relocating the decorated constable to the West Country village of Sanford -- where tranquil garden parties and neighborhood watch meetings stand in stark contrast to the violent crime and heated gunplay of the city. As Sergeant Angel does his best to adjust to the relative calm of his new environment, his oafish new partner Danny Butterman (Nick Frost) strives to gain the respect of his fellow constables while sustaining himself on fantasies of his favorite action films and police shows. Later, just as it begins to appear as if Sergeant Angel has been relegated to an uneventful existence in the relative calm of the countryside, a series of horrific "accidents" lead him to suspect that the tranquil hamlet of Sanford has fallen prey to a sinister plot which reeks of foul play. Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton, Steve Coogan, and Martin Freeman co-star in the Edgar Wright film.

"Do you believe in time?", "Does TIME Exist?", "is Time-Travel possible?, "What is time?" - and are these questions even answerable? I think if we very carefully avoid any false assumptions at the start of the discussion, logical, sensible, scientific and surprising answers to all of the above can be found, and confirmed. Filmed at Crouch End's famous "Downstairs at the Kings Head" venue a clear, direct and unique approach to the "problem of Time" is presented. Most attempts to answer questions like "Does TIME Exist?", or, "What IS time", almost always start from the assumption Time must exist and be something, hence the original question. But jumping to conclusions at the start of any investigation can immediately lead to an ever growing mass of "leading questions", built on unchecked assumptions, and then complicated speculation and confusion... -ending in the vague assumption "Time must kind of exist, otherwise how could we have so many questions about "IT". "A Brief History of Timelessness" tests the possibility that perhaps the key to seeing how we may be fundamentally wrong in assuming a thing called time exists, from the outset, is to start from a different line of questioning, specifically... "What if things JUST exist and change?" More specifically, *"If things JUST exist and change, would this be enough to WRONGLY lead us to assume a 'Past', and a 'Future' exist, and thus "Time" exist?"* Filmed at the famous 'Downstairs at the Kings Head' Comedy club Thanks to Pete Graham for the room see www.TIMELESSNESS.co.uk for eBOOK and more info This talk explains how there may be no PAST and NO future from the ground up, and shows how the possibility that everything just exists, moves and changes "now" so to speak can explain all our observations supposedly about 'time' M.M. thanks for watching.

Edward Luce ─ The Retreat of Western Liberalism (moderated by Mark Blyth)
 
01:01:13
Skip ahead to main speaker at 2:20 Join Financial Times chief U.S. columnist and commentator Edward Luce for a discussion of his latest book, The Retreat of Western Liberalism. The discussion will be moderated by Mark Blyth, Eastman Professor of Political Economy and Professor of Political Science and International and Public Affairs. In his widely acclaimed book Time to Start Thinking, Edward Luce charted the course of American economic and geopolitical decline, proving to be a prescient voice on our current social and political turmoil. In The Retreat of Western Liberalism, Luce makes a larger statement about the weakening of western hegemony and the crisis of democratic liberalism—of which Donald Trump and his European counterparts are not the cause, but a symptom. Luce argues that we are on a menacing trajectory brought about by ignorance of what it took to build the West, arrogance toward society’s economic losers, and complacency about our system’s durability—attitudes that have been emerging since the fall of the Berlin Wall, treated by the West as an absolute triumph over the East. We cannot move forward without a clear diagnosis of what has gone wrong. Unless the West can rekindle an economy that produces gains for the majority of its people, its political liberties may be doomed. Combining on-the-ground reporting with intelligent synthesis of the literature and economic analysis, Luce offers a detailed projection of the consequences of the Trump administration and a forward-thinking analysis of what those who believe in enlightenment values must do to defend them from the multiple onslaughts they face in the coming years. Edward Luce is a graduate of Oxford University in politics, philosophy, and economics. He worked as a speech writer for the treasury secretary in the Clinton administration, worked as the South Asia bureau chief for the Financial Times, and is based in Washington DC as the Financial Times Washington columnist and commentator Co-sponsored by the Taubman Center and the Watson Institute.

Will it Break? - Caravan Conkers

Sealed Air Europe has released its latest 'Will it Break?' video as Professor Packaging re-creates one of Top Gear's most famous tests, 'Caravan Conkers'. Conkers is a popular sport worldwide and involves two people taking it in turns to hit each other's conker, made from the seeds of Horse Chesnut trees. However, in a spectacular twist, caravans have been used to replace the conkers. The tension builds for the professor as he puts his precious egg and Grandma's china inside one of the two caravans. Protected by Sealed Air's NewAir I.B.® inflatable bubble cushioning, the caravans are suspended in mid-air ahead of an almighty collision. Will the professor's fragile package survive the heavy impact, or will his plans be crushed underneath the carcasses of smashed carvans? There's only one way to find out...

The Las Vegas Shooting Part 1, Bad Info Debunked
 
17:20
In this video we begin looking critically at the Las Vegas Shooting of 10/1/17 where 58 people were killed and my primary purpose in this video is to debunk bad conspiracy theories involving a second shooter due to a misinterpretation of two videos circulating on YouTube, and even a theory involving a helicopter! To be clear, this does not prove that there was one shooter, it only disproves most of the evidence that people are pointing to in order to establish the presence of a supposed second shooter in this massacre. In part 2 we will look at why the Health Ranger is also incorrect in his acoustic analysis of the shooting. Thanks and God bless! Sum Body For Christ

UNDERWATER diving - WikiVidi Documentary
 
01:03:08
Underwater diving, as a human activity, is the practice of descending below the water's surface to interact with the environment. Immersion in water and exposure to high ambient pressure have physiological effects that limit the depths and duration possible in ambient pressure diving. Humans are not physiologically and anatomically well adapted to the environmental conditions of diving, and various equipment has been developed to extend the depth and duration of human dives, and allow different types of work to be done. In ambient pressure diving, the diver is directly exposed to the pressure of the surrounding water. The ambient pressure diver may dive on breath-hold, or use breathing apparatus for scuba diving or surface-supplied diving, and the saturation diving technique reduces the risk of decompression sickness after long-duration deep dives. Atmospheric diving suits may be used to isolate the diver from high ambient pressure. Crewed submersibles can extend depth range, ... http://www.wikividi.com ____________________________________ Shortcuts to chapters: 00:03:27: Physiological constraints on diving 00:04:06: Immersion 00:05:41: Exposure 00:08:31: Breath-hold limitations 00:10:11: Ambient pressure changes 00:12:12: Breathing under pressure 00:13:43: Sensory impairment 00:18:47: Freediving 00:20:01: Scuba diving 00:22:49: Surface supplied diving 00:27:17: Atmospheric pressure diving 00:28:10: Unmanned diving 00:29:00: Range of diving activities 00:31:44: History 00:35:14: Physiological discoveries 00:39:28: Diving environment 00:42:36: Depth range 00:44:21: Dive sites 00:45:05: Diver training 00:48:24: Medical aspects of diving 00:48:56: Fitness to dive 00:49:49: Diving medicine 00:51:22: Risks and safety 00:56:08: Diving hazards 00:57:45: Human factors ____________________________________ Copyright WikiVidi.

Political Concepts at Brown, December 5, 2015  2 of 4
 
01:46:07
December 5, 2015 Session #2 Speakers include: Lukas Rieppel, History, "Nature"; Anna Bialek, Religious Studies, ""Indeterminacy". Moderated by Stephen Bush, Religious Studies. The goal of Political Concepts is to serve as a platform for revising, inventing, and experimenting with concepts while exploring the political dimension of their use and dissemination. Participants operate under the assumption that our era urgently needs a revised political lexicon that would help us better understand the world in which we live and act, and that the humanities at large can and should contribute toward such a revision. In the past, some of the participants revised key political concepts while others showed the political work done by terms and common nouns that are not usually considered “political.”

'Finding History in Our Own Back Yard' - 3/4/2008
 
53:46
Western Washington University Professor Chris Friday will present "Finding History in Our Own Backyard: Georgia Pacific, Your House, Your Neighborhood and Public History at WWU" from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 4, at the Bellingham City Council chambers, Bellingham City Hall, 210 Lottie St. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, is offered as the second event of the annual WWU College of Humanities and Social Sciences Dean's Lecture Series. Writer Maxing Hong Kingston once noted that America and especially the American West was a place devoid of history because it was a "land without ghosts." As true as that may have been from her Chinese American perspective growing up in the 1950s, Kingston missed an opportunity to understand that the landscape around us is filled with many "ghostscapes" - the layered meanings and perspectives we create about places across cultures and times. What happens when we consider our own local, familiar landscape in historical perspective? What happens when we disagree on the meaning of familiar places, especially because we see them through lenses we create out of our own peculiar understandings of history and place? How do Western students, the University, and the community benefit from thinking about the local landscape historically? This lecture will attempt to answer these questions. Friday will also present the Georgia Pacific/Waterfront Oral History project and the current Bellingham Historic Neighborhood project that connect WWU students with the local community in the exploration of history outside the classroom. Chris Friday is a professor of History at Western Washington University. Friday grew up near Mount St. Helens, got his bachelor's degree at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, then received his master's degree and doctorate in American History from UCLA. He lived in China for nearly two years in the early 1980s and taught in the Boston area prior to coming to WWU in 1992. At WWU, Friday's teaching and research/publication areas are Pacific Northwest History, American Indian History, and Asian American History. For most of the last decade, Friday has also been director of the Center for Pacific Northwest Studies at Western Washington University (an archives and small research institute). Most recently, Friday started a Public History minor at WWU, which is designed to help students see the connections between their interest in history as an academic subject and history as a discipline practiced in settings well beyond teaching in any classroom. "The purpose of the Dean's Community Lecture Series is to foster connections between the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the local community. What better way to make such connections than learning about our city from our own historians, such as Chris Friday," said Ron Kleinknecht, CHSS dean. Friday's presentation will also be taped and rebroadcast on Bellingham BTV 10.
Griffith Rock Quarry:  Penryn, CA Part 4
 
02:44
THE INVESTIGATION: We walked around the quarry and made several stops to conduct EVP sessions. Kris Hansen's Ovilus says abyss and Deanna feels something in a deep cliff side. We follow the trail and stop at a pile of rocks. We capture two possible EVPs. At another part of the trail, we capture a CLASS B EVP in which the entity is saying "okay, turn around, I'm here." Deanna utilizes her crystal skulls to enhance her abilities to detect the presence of an entity or entities. I had everyone take a series of photos at each location, to see if there were any anomalies in the photos. One of the Pulse of 209 members became ill, she was nauseated, dizzy, blinded and had to sit down. We provided salted snacks and water and she began to feel better. It was 104 degrees, so either it was heat exhaustion or it was illness that was brought on by the paranormal. Since I am not a doctor, my diagnosis is a mere guess. CANCELED, SINCE WE ALREADY INVESTIGATED THIS QUARRY THE HUNT FOR THE ROCK QUARRY TOMMY KNOCKERS! SCOUTING MISSION! July 11, 2015 - Time to be there: 2pm Location: 7504 Rock Springs Road, Penryn, CA OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! At this location is a huge rock quarry - 23 miles worth of exploration. At this rock quarry were many accidents and deaths. Right across the street is the haunted Valencia Club. There is a story that late at night, people sometimes hear the knocking noise coming from various rocks. They call this phenomenon, the Tommy Knockers, ghostly miners who will tap of the rocks, to warn you of danger. HPI will be exploring this rock quarry and determine if the quarry is truly haunted. Here is my previous article on the Valencia Club: http://www.archivexparanormalstories.com/?p=1689 - here is an article when my wife Deanna and I visited the rock quarry - note: There is a museum at the quarry and the museum is filled with history of the rock quarry! Now to that story: http://forums.jazmaonline.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=7245 DEANNA'S MYSTERY EYE / UFO EXPERIENCE IN PENRYN: When I was a small child, (I can't remember the exact age possibly 5 or a little older), I had a paranormal experience in Penryn. Their was blue skies that day. I was playing at my daycare in the front driveway and I felt that there was someone looking down on me. I looked up to the top of a tall pine tree and I noticed there was an invisible force like a hand that seemed to open up the top of the sky. All of a sudden I saw a gigantic eyeball that was blue inside appear and it was rolling it's eye around like it just woke up and was looking for something. Then it noticed me. It was just staring at me and then it got closer and kept staring even harder. After what seemed like just a few moments the eye started rolling back into the grey eyelid and it made a noise like several boulders rolling down a mountain side. Than it went backwards and the invisible blanket opened up the sky again and it was sucked backwards very, very far and the sky closed back to a normal sky and it was gone. That day I was sexually abused immediately after that. I cannot tell you what it was or if the events are connected but ever since I have been seeking the truth. UFO SIGHTING IN PENRYN, CA January 23, 1953: Linda Callahan and Mary Foxworth were near the granite quarry when they spotted 3 blue globes in the sky. The globes all rotated in the same direction, it was 3pm. As the two ladies stared at the globes, the globes went straight up in the air at an incredible speed and they seemed to disappear. Legend has it, that extraterrestrials are interested in the following: 1. gold. 2. quartz - the quarry contains high quality granite that has quartz in it. 3. human abduction that involves implanting alien implants, probing body parts, pregnancy, sexual reproduction organs, the brain, etc. 4. animal abductions - possible cattle mutilations, 5. volcanos, earthquake fault lines, leylines - these could be refueling areas for their UFOs.

Thinking they would never get out alive, Anthony revealed his identity to the other soldier - just before they were rescued and separated.

Hawker Siddeley Nimrod
 
33:05
The Hawker Siddeley Nimrod was a maritime patrol aircraft developed and operated by the United Kingdom. It was an extensive modification of the de Havilland Comet, the world's first operational jet airliner. It was originally designed by de Havilland's successor firm, Hawker Siddeley; further development and maintenance work was undertaken by Hawker Siddeley's own successor companies, British Aerospace and BAE Systems, respectively. Designed in response to a requirement issued by the Royal Air Force to replace its fleet of ageing Avro Shackletons, the Nimrod MR1/MR2s were primarily fixed-wing aerial platforms for anti-submarine warfare operations; secondary roles included maritime surveillance and anti-surface warfare. It served from the early 1970s until March 2010. The intended replacement was to be extensively rebuilt Nimrod MR2s, designated Nimrod MRA4; however due to considerable delays, repeated cost overruns, and financial cutbacks, the development of the MRA4 was abandoned in 2010.

Renewable energy in the United Kingdom
 
16:59
Renewable energy can be divided into generation of renewable electricity and the generation of renewable heat. From the mid-1990s renewable energy began to contribute to the electricity generated in the United Kingdom, adding to a small hydroelectricity generating capacity. The total of all renewable electricity sources provided for 14.9% of the electricity generated in the United Kingdom in 2013, reaching 53.7 TWh of electricity generated. In the second quarter of 2015, renewable electricity penetration exceeded 25% and coal generation for the first time. This video is targeted to blind users.

Locomotive
 
27:16
A locomotive or engine is a rail transport vehicle that provides the motive power for a train. The word originates from the Latin loco – "from a place", ablative of locus, "place" + Medieval Latin motivus, "causing motion", and is a shortened form of the term locomotive engine, first used in the early 19th century to distinguish between mobile and stationary steam engines. A locomotive has no payload capacity of its own, and its sole purpose is to move the train along the tracks. In contrast, some trains have self-propelled payload-carrying vehicles. These are not normally considered locomotives, and may be referred to as multiple units, motor coaches or railcars. The use of these self-propelled vehicles is increasingly common for passenger trains, but rare for freight (see CargoSprinter). Vehicles which provide motive power to haul an unpowered train, but are not generally considered locomotives because they have payload space or are rarely detached from their trains, are known as power cars.

Economy of the United Kingdom
 
44:58
The United Kingdom has the 6th-largest national economy in the world (and 3rd-largest in Europe) measured by nominal GDP and 8th-largest in the world (and 2nd-largest in Europe) measured by purchasing power parity (PPP). The UK economy comprises (in descending order of size) the economies of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. In 2013 the UK was the 4th-largest exporter in the world and the 4th-largest importer, and had the 2nd-largest stock of inward foreign direct investment and the 2nd-largest stock of outward foreign direct investment. The UK is one of the world's most globalised economies. The service sector dominates the UK economy, contributing around 78% of GDP; the financial services industry is particularly important and London is the world's largest financial centre. The UK aerospace industry is the second- or third-largest national aerospace industry depending on the method of measurement. The pharmaceutical industry plays an important role in the economy and the UK has the third-highest share of global pharmaceutical R&D. The automotive industry is also a major employer and exporter. The British economy is boosted by North Sea oil and gas production; its reserves were valued at an estimated £250 billion in 2007. There are significant regional variations in prosperity, with the South East of England and southern Scotland the richest areas per capita. London has the largest city GDP in Europe.

It is the fifth-largest national economy in the world measured by nominal gross domestic product (GDP), ninth-largest measured by purchasing power parity (PPP), and twenty second-largest measured by GDP per capita, comprising 3.5% of world GDP.In 2016, the UK was the tenth-largest goods exporter in the world and the fifth-largest goods importer. It also had the second-largest inward foreign direct investment, and the third-largest outward foreign direct investment. The UK is one of the most globalised economies, and it is composed of the economies of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.The service sector dominates the UK economy, contributing around 80% of GDP; the financial services industry is particularly important, and London is the world's largest financial centre. Britain's aerospace industry is the second-largest national aerospace industry. Its pharmaceutical industry, the tenth-largest in the world, plays an important role in the economy. Of the world's 500 largest companies, 26 are headquartered in the UK. The economy is boosted by North Sea oil and gas production; its reserves were estimated at 2.8 billion barrels in 2016, although it has been a net importer of oil since 2005. There are significant regional variations in prosperity, with South East England and North East Scotland being the richest areas per capita. The size of London's economy makes it the largest city by GDP in Europe.In the 18th century the UK was the first country to industrialise, and during the 19th century it had a dominant role in the global economy, accounting for 9.1% of the world's GDP in 1870. From the late 19th century the Second Industrial Revolution was also taking place rapidly in the United States and the German Empire; this presented an increasing economic challenge for the UK. The costs of fighting World War I and World War II further weakened the UK's relative position. In the 21st century, however, it remains a global power and has an influential role in the world economy.Government involvement in the British economy is primarily exercised by Her Majesty's Treasury, headed by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. Since 1979 management of the economy has followed a broadly laissez-faire approach. The Bank of England is the UK's central bank and since 1997 its Monetary Policy Committee has been responsible for setting interest rates, quantitative easing, and forward guidance.

Until the advent of air transport and the creation of the Channel Tunnel, marine transport was the only way of reaching the British Isles. For this reason, maritime trade and naval power have always had great importance. Prior to the Acts of Union, 1707, the maritime history of the British Isles was largely dominated by that of England.

It is linked to the Roman Empire and with Medieval Western Christendom which emerged from the Middle Ages to experience such transformative episodes as the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, scientific revolution, and the development of liberal democracy. The civilizations of Classical Greece and Ancient Rome are considered seminal periods in Western history; a few cultural contributions also emerged from the pagan peoples of pre-Christian Europe, such as the Celts and Germans, as well as some significant religious contributions derived from Judaism and Hellenistic Judaism stemming back to Second Temple Judea, Galilee, and the early Jewish diaspora; and some other Middle Eastern influences. Christianity and Roman Catholicism has played a prominent role in the shaping of Western civilization, which throughout most of its history, has been nearly equivalent to Christian culture. (There were Christians outside of the West, such as China, India, Russia, Byzantium and the Middle East). Western civilization has spread to produce the dominant cultures of modern Americas and Oceania, and has had immense global influence in recent centuries in many ways. Following the 5th century Fall of Rome, Western Europe entered the Middle Ages, during which period the Catholic Church filled the power vacuum left in the West by the fall of the Western Roman Empire, while the Eastern Roman Empire (or Byzantine Empire) endured in the East for centuries, becoming a Hellenic Eastern contrast to the Latin West. By the 12th century, Western Europe was experiencing a flowering of art and learning, propelled by the construction of cathedrals and the establishment of medieval universities. Christian unity was shattered by the Reformation from the 16th century. A merchant class grew out of city states, initially in the Italian peninsula (see Italian city-states), and Europe experienced the Renaissance from the 14th to the 17th century, heralding an age of technological and artistic advance and ushering in the Age of Discovery which saw the rise of such global European Empires as those of Spain and Portugal. The Industrial Revolution began in Britain in the 18th century. Under the influence of the Enlightenment, the Age of Revolution emerged from the United States and France as part of the transformation of the West into its industrialised, democratised modern form. The lands of North and South America, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand became first part of European Empires and then home to new Western nations, while Africa and Asia were largely carved up between Western powers. Laboratories of Western democracy were founded in Britain's colonies in Australasia from the mid-19th centuries, while South America largely created new autocracies. In the 20th century, absolute monarchy disappeared from Europe, and despite episodes of Fascism and Communism, by the close of the century, virtually all of Europe was electing its leaders democratically. Most Western nations were heavily involved in the First and Second World Wars and protracted Cold War. World War II saw Fascism defeated in Europe, and the emergence of the United States and Soviet Union as rival global powers and a new "East-West" political contrast. Other than in Russia, the European Empires disintegrated after World War II and civil rights movements and widescale multi-ethnic, multi-faith migrations to Europe, the Americas and Oceania lowered the earlier predominance of ethnic Europeans in Western culture. European nations moved towards greater economic and political co-operation through the European Union. The Cold War ended around 1990 with the collapse of Soviet imposed Communism in Central and Eastern Europe. In the 21st century, the Western World retains significant global economic power and influ ...

In federations like the United States, areas of jurisdiction apply to local, state, and federal levels; e.g. the court has jurisdiction to apply federal law. Colloquially it is used to refer to the geographical area to which such authority applies, e.g. the court has jurisdiction over all of Colorado. The legal term refers only to the granted authority, not to a geographical area. Jurisdiction draws its substance from international law, conflict of laws, constitutional law, and the powers of the executive and legislative branches of government to allocate resources to best serve the needs of society.

Auburn Coach Wife Kristi Malzahn Agrees with Match & eHarmony: Men are Jerks

My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)

This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It shares land borders with Scotland to the north and Wales to the west. The Irish Sea lies northwest of England and the Celtic Sea lies to the southwest. England is separated from continental Europe by the North Sea to the east and the English Channel to the south. The country covers five-eighths of the island of Great Britain, which lies in the North Atlantic, and includes over 100 smaller islands, such as the Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Wight. The area now called England was first inhabited by modern humans during the Upper Palaeolithic period, but takes its name from the Angles, a Germanic tribe deriving its name from the Anglia peninsula, who settled during the 5th and 6th centuries. England became a unified state in the 10th century, and since the Age of Discovery, which began during the 15th century, has had a significant cultural and legal impact on the wider world. The English language, the Anglican Church, and English law – the basis for the common law legal systems of many other countries around the world – developed in England, and the country's parliamentary system of government has been widely adopted by other nations. The Industrial Revolution began in 18th-century England, transforming its society into the world's first industrialised nation.England's terrain is chiefly low hills and plains, especially in central and southern England. However, there is upland and mountainous terrain in the north (for example, the Lake District and Pennines) and in the west (for example, Dartmoor and the Shropshire Hills). The capital is London, which has the largest metropolitan area in both the United Kingdom and the European Union. England's population of over 55 million comprises 84% of the population of the United Kingdom, largely concentrated around London, the South East, and conurbations in the Midlands, the North West, the North East, and Yorkshire, which each developed as major industrial regions during the 19th century.The Kingdom of England – which after 1535 included Wales – ceased being a separate sovereign state on 1 May 1707, when the Acts of Union put into effect the terms agreed in the Treaty of Union the previous year, resulting in a political union with the Kingdom of Scotland to create the Kingdom of Great Britain. In 1801, Great Britain was united with the Kingdom of Ireland (through another Act of Union) to become the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. In 1922 the Irish Free State seceded from the United Kingdom, leading to the latter being renamed the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Calling All Cars: Highlights of 1934 / San Quentin Prison Break / Dr. Nitro
 
01:28:06
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is the police department of the city of Los Angeles, California. The LAPD has been copiously fictionalized in numerous movies, novels and television shows throughout its history. The department has also been associated with a number of controversies, mainly concerned with racial animosity, police brutality and police corruption. radio show Calling All Cars hired LAPD radio dispacher Jesse Rosenquist to be the voice of the dispatcher. Rosenquist was already famous because home radios could tune into early police radio frequencies. As the first police radio dispatcher presented to the public ear, his was the voice that actors went to when called upon for a radio dispatcher role. The iconic television series Dragnet, with LAPD Detective Joe Friday as the primary character, was the first major media representation of the department. Real LAPD operations inspired Jack Webb to create the series and close cooperation with department officers let him make it as realistic as possible, including authentic police equipment and sound recording on-site at the police station. Due to Dragnet's popularity, LAPD Chief Parker "became, after J. Edgar Hoover, the most well known and respected law enforcement official in the nation". In the 1960s, when the LAPD under Chief Thomas Reddin expanded its community relations division and began efforts to reach out to the African-American community, Dragnet followed suit with more emphasis on internal affairs and community policing than solving crimes, the show's previous mainstay. Several prominent representations of the LAPD and its officers in television and film include Adam-12, Blue Streak, Blue Thunder, Boomtown, The Closer, Colors, Crash, Columbo, Dark Blue, Die Hard, End of Watch, Heat, Hollywood Homicide, Hunter, Internal Affairs, Jackie Brown, L.A. Confidential, Lakeview Terrace, Law & Order: Los Angeles, Life, Numb3rs, The Shield, Southland, Speed, Street Kings, SWAT, Training Day and the Lethal Weapon, Rush Hour and Terminator film series. The LAPD is also featured in the video games Midnight Club II, Midnight Club: Los Angeles, L.A. Noire and Call of Juarez: The Cartel. The LAPD has also been the subject of numerous novels. Elizabeth Linington used the department as her backdrop in three different series written under three different names, perhaps the most popular being those novel featuring Det. Lt. Luis Mendoza, who was introduced in the Edgar-nominated Case Pending. Joseph Wambaugh, the son of a Pittsburgh policeman, spent fourteen years in the department, using his background to write novels with authentic fictional depictions of life in the LAPD. Wambaugh also created the Emmy-winning TV anthology series Police Story. Wambaugh was also a major influence on James Ellroy, who wrote several novels about the Department set during the 1940s and 1950s, the most famous of which are probably The Black Dahlia, fictionalizing the LAPD's most famous "cold case", and L.A. Confidential, which was made into a film of the same name. Both the novel and the film chronicled mass-murder and corruption inside and outside the force during the Parker era. Critic Roger Ebert indicates that the film's characters (from the 1950s) "represent the choices ahead for the LAPD": assisting Hollywood limelight, aggressive policing with relaxed ethics, and a "straight arrow" approach. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAPD

Essa discussão é particularmente importante porque grande parte da população brasileira não dispõe de meios para participar efetivamente das decisões de planejamento urbano que terão grande impacto em sua vida. Ao envolver o público na discussão sobre arquitetura de qualidade e a necessidade de maiores investimentos em infraestrutura e serviços, o Arq.Futuro busca contribuir para o crescimento sustentável e justo e para a competitividade do Brasil. Também está cultivando uma base local de conhecimentos sobre inovação em arquitetura e urbanismo no país e na América Latina. Vários dos arquitetos, economistas, empresários mais influentes do país e do mundo têm se reunido com formadores de opinião e atores políticos nos eventos do Arq.Futuro. Alguns dos temas debatidos são: espaço publico, habitação, transportação e infra-estrutura educação em arquitetura e urbanismo engajamento do público em assuntos relacionados à arquitetura e ao desenvolvimento urbano novas tecnologias para a participação popular, a mobilidade urbana e os edifícios caminhos para promover a construção do novo e a preservação do patrimônio cultural a diferença entre tendências passageiras e valores permanentes em arquitetura Todo o conteúdo gerado pelo Arq.Futuro é registrado e disponibilizado em diversos formatos, que incluem a publicação de livros digitais e a produção de material audiovisual com imagens e vídeos exclusivos.
