The Scorpion King

The Scorpion King is a 2002 American historical fantasy film directed by Chuck Russell, starring The Rock, Kelly Hu, Grant Heslov, and Michael Clarke Duncan. It is a spin-off from The Mummy franchise, which takes place before The Mummy Returns and follows the story of Mathayus and his rise to become the Scorpion King. The events of The Scorpion King take place 5,000 years before those in The Mummy and The Mummy Returns, and reveal Mathayus' origins and his rise to power as the Scorpion King.

His many victories come from the help of a sorcerer who predicts the outcomes of battles, leaving only a few free tribes to oppose him.

Cambodia–France relations

topic

Cambodia–France relations

Cambodia–France relations refer to the bilateral relations between Cambodia and France. France was the protectorate of Cambodia from 11 August 1863 to 9 November 1953. King Norodom approached the French in 1861 in attempt to stop neighbors Thailand and Vietnam from swallowing Cambodia's land. History A treaty was signed in 1863 by King Norodom I and was approved by his counterpart Napoleon III. Cambodia officially became a protectorate of the French empire on 11 August 1863.[1] Cambodia gained its independence in November 1953, thanks to Prince Norodom Sihanouk.[2] France and Cambodia enjoy close relations, stemming partly from the days of the French Protectorate and partly from the role played by France in the signing of the peace agreements in Paris in 1991,[3] and further cemented by the French language. These relations are gradually adapting to Cambodia’s growing integration into its regional environment and its progress towards the status of a Middle Income Country, hopefully by 2020.

Dolly Parton in 1983. Big hair is a hairstyle that emphasizes large volume or largely styled hair, especially when those styles make the hair occupy a large amount of space above and around the head. The label "big hair" for such styles originated in the late 1970s, when these styles were beginning a period of popularity. Similar styles have become fashionable at various periods in history.[1] History Tom Bailey of the Thompson Twins, 1986 Actresses like Raquel Welch, Brigitte Bardot and Jane Fonda became big-haired icons in the early sixties through seventies.[2][3][4] Women's hairstyles labelled as "big hair" became fashionable during this period, with a poster of actress Farrah Fawcett becoming an iconic example.[5] The fashion persisted with certain regional subcultures in the southern United States, and the styles are sometimes also associated with female country music performers.[6] It is also associated with the exaggerated stereotypical femininity associated with drag queens and similar gender ...more...

List of trading companies

This is a list of trading companies. A trading company is a business that works with different kinds of products sold for consumer, business or government purposes. In contemporary times, trading companies buy a specialized range of products, broker them, and coordinate delivery of products to customers. Trading companies may connect buyers and sellers, but not partake in the ownership or storage of goods, earning their revenue through sales commissions.[1] They may also be structured to engage in commerce with foreign countries or territories.[2] During times of colonization, some trading companies were granted a charter, giving them "rights to a specific territory within an area claimed by the authority granting the charter including legal title, a monopoly of trade, and governmental and military jurisdiction".[2] Furthermore, trading companies may comprise a limited liability, unincorporated entity, designed to "settle and develop a land grant obtained from a legally incorporated company".[2] Trading com ...more...

Treaty of Washington (1871)

The Treaty of Washington was a treaty signed and ratified by Great Britain and the United States in 1871 during the First premiership of William Gladstone and the presidency of Ulysses S. Grant that settled various disputes between the countries, including the Alabama Claims for damages to American shipping caused by British-built warships, as well as illegal fishing in Canadian waters and British civilian losses in the American Civil War. It inaugurated permanent peaceful relations between the United States and Canada, and United States and Britain.[1] After the arbitrators endorsed the American position in 1872, Britain settled the matter by paying the United States $15.5 million (approximately $295 million in 2018) , ending the dispute and leading to a treaty that restored friendly relations between Britain and the United States. That international arbitration established a precedent, and the case aroused interest in codifying public international law. Background The British and Canadian high commissio ...more...

Model-based testing

topic

Model-based testing

General model-based testing setting Model-based testing is an application of model-based design for designing and optionally also executing artifacts to perform software testing or system testing. Models can be used to represent the desired behavior of a system under test (SUT), or to represent testing strategies and a test environment. The picture on the right depicts the former approach. A model describing a SUT is usually an abstract, partial presentation of the SUT's desired behavior. Test cases derived from such a model are functional tests on the same level of abstraction as the model. These test cases are collectively known as an abstract test suite. An abstract test suite cannot be directly executed against an SUT because the suite is on the wrong level of abstraction. An executable test suite needs to be derived from a corresponding abstract test suite. The executable test suite can communicate directly with the system under test. This is achieved by mapping the abstract test cases to concrete test ...more...

Senecio vernalis

Senecio vernalis is one of the European species of Senecio, an annual that is also known as eastern groundsel. While it has been long classified as Senecio vernalis, this species has more recently been described as a subspecies of Senecio leucanthemifolius and is now included by some in that species.[4] Description Eastern groundsel is a "lovely yellow-flowering weed found by the roadside and on the edges of fields"[5] that can be sometimes confused with S. eboracensis[6] Stems and leaves Leaves usually wavey, dissected, with lateral lobes that are about as long as width of central undivided portion, usually conspicuously covered with fine hairs. The edges are serrated. Leaves alternate one leaf per node along the stem.[6][7] Seeds The oldest collection of seeds recorded was 16 years; average germination change for these was from 100% to 82.5%, with a mean storage period 13 years.[8] A Senecio and a diploid, Senecio vernalis is part of a species group along with S. flavus, S. gallicus, S. squalidus a ...more...

Great flood of 99

The Great flood of '99 occurred when the Periyar River in Kerala state of India flooded in the month of July, 1924. This is the year 1099 ME in the Malayalam Calendar. As the Malayalam Calendar was popular in Kerala, this flood is generally called the flood of 99.The rain continued for about three weeks. Many districts of the present day Kerala were deeply submerged in water by this flood - From Trichur, to Ernakulam to Idukki, Kottayam even up to Alappuzha and Kuttanad. Even a huge mountain called Karinthiri Mala was washed away by this flood and the road to Munnar also went along with it. As the road to Munnar was lost by this flood, a new road from Ernakulam to Munnar became necessary - the present day road from Ernakulam to Munnar was constructed after this. Kundala Valley Railway which was the first monorail system in India was also completely destroyed. Cause It is a widespread belief in the old generation of Kerala that the cause of this great flood was a major breach of the Mullaperiyar Dam. That is ...more...

Fastest is a model-based testing tool that works with specifications written in the Z notation. The tool implements (Cristia & Rodriguez Monetti 2009) the Test Template Framework (TTF) proposed by Phil Stocks and David Carrington in (Stocks & Carrington 1996). It is freely available online.[1] Usage Fastest presents a command-line user interface. The user first needs to load a Z specification written in LaTeX format verifying the ISO standard (Z Standard 2002). Then, the user has to enter a list of the operations to test as well as the testing tactics to apply to each of them. In a third step Fastest generates the testing tree of each operation. After testing trees have been generated, users can browse them and their test classes, and, more importantly, they can prune any test class both automatically or manually. Once testing trees have been pruned, users can instruct Fastest to find one abstract test case for each leaf in each testing tree. (Cristia, Rodriguez Monetti & Albertengo 2009) Te ...more...

Robert Shields (diarist)

Reverend Robert Shields (May 17, 1918 – October 15, 2007)[1] was a former Minister and high school English teacher who lived in Dayton, Washington,[2] United States, and left behind a diary of 37.5 million words[3] that fills 94 boxes. The diary chronicles every five minutes of his life from 1972 until a stroke disabled him in 1997. Shields's diary was longer than those kept by the journalist Edward Robb Ellis (21 million words), the poet Arthur Crew Inman (17 million words), and perhaps the most famous diarist of all, Samuel Pepys (1.25 million words).[1] Contents Believing that discontinuing his diary would be like "turning off my life",[2] he spent four hours a day in the office, on his back porch, in his underwear, recording his body temperature, blood pressure, medications, describing his urination and bowel movements, and slept for only two hours at a time so he could describe his dreams.[4] The New York Times summarized the journal as being about anything "from changing light bulbs to pondering God t ...more...

North American Man/Boy Love Association

The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) is a pedophile and pederasty advocacy organization in the United States. It works to abolish age-of-consent laws criminalizing adult sexual involvement with minors[2][3] and campaigns for the release of men who have been jailed for sexual contacts with minors that did not involve coercion.[2][4] The group no longer holds regular national meetings, and as of the late 1990s—to avoid local police infiltration—the organization discouraged the formation of local chapters.[4][5] Around 1995, an undercover detective discovered there were 1,100 people on the organization's rolls.[4] In 1997, NAMBLA was the largest group in IPCE, an international pro-pedophile activist organization.[6] Since then, the organization has dwindled to only a handful of people, with many members joining online pedophile networks such as DanPedo, BoyChat, and Annabelleigh, according to Xavier Von Erck, director of operations at the anti-pedophile organization Perverted-Justice.[7] As of 20 ...more...

This past Sunday evening we invited our son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren over to celebrate our son's 42nd birthday. We got Subway sandwiches and I looked in my cupboard to make some drink and seen this Root Beer package so decided to make it. When we offered some drinks to our 9-yr. old grandson, he said he wanted the Root Beer. When he tasted it, he said, "this is good stuff".

Test Template Framework

The Test Template Framework (TTF) is a model-based testing (MBT) framework proposed by Phil Stocks and David Carrington in (Stocks & Carrington 1996) for the purpose of software testing. Although the TTF was meant to be notation-independent, the original presentation was made using the Z formal notation. It is one of the few MBT frameworks approaching unit testing. Introduction The TTF is a specific proposal of model-based testing (MBT). It considers models to be Z specifications. Each operation within the specification is analyzed to derive or generate abstract test cases. This analysis consists of the following steps: Define the input space (IS) of each operation. Derive the valid input space (VIS) from the IS of each operation. Apply one or more testing tactics,[1] starting from each VIS, to build a testing tree for each operation. Testing trees are populated with nodes called test classes. Prune each of the resulting testing trees. Find one or more abstract test cases from each leaf in each ...more...

Reformation

topic

Reformation

The Reformation (or, more fully, the Protestant Reformation; also, the European Reformation)[1] was a schism in Western Christianity initiated by Martin Luther and continued by Huldrych Zwingli, John Calvin and other Protestant Reformers in 16th-century Europe. It is usually considered to have started with the publication of the Ninety-five Theses by Martin Luther in 1517 and lasted until the end of the Thirty Years' War in 1648. It led to the division of Western Christianity into different confessions (Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Anglican, Anabaptist, Unitarian, etc.). By the time of its arrival, Western Christianity was only compromised in the Lands of the Bohemian Crown, where Utraquist Hussitism was officially acknowledged by both the Pope and the Holy Roman Emperor; in addition, various movements (including Lollards in England and Waldensians in Italy and France) were still being actively suppressed. Although there had been earlier attempts to reform the Catholic Church – such as those of Jan Hus, Pe ...more...

List of streets in Cebu

topic

List of streets in Cebu

This is a partial list of streets or roads in Cebu, Philippines. Background Ever since the early American Period in Cebu, street names from former Spanish colonial leaders were renamed, mostly at that time, after revolutionaries who were either executed or died while fighting the Spaniards or the Americans. Some streets were named after famous Filipino leaders, and as well as the first elected leaders of a certain area, town, barangay or a city. Cebu also boasts street names named after philanthropists, common civilian jobs like teachers, civic leaders, priests and exemplary government officials. Rarely, streets in Cebu are named after foreigners, but if it was, it was done in commemoration of either heroic deeds, or help in the development of the island and even played a part in the Philippine history. Majority of the common streets in Cebu were already present during the Spanish Era, but many more alleyways were constructed as the years passed by (in conjunction with the growth and expansion of Cebu), th ...more...

List of chicken breeds

Thirty-nine varieties of chicken (and one Guinea Fowl). There are hundreds of chicken breeds in existence.[1] Domesticated for thousands of years, distinguishable breeds of chicken have been present since the combined factors of geographical isolation and selection for desired characteristics created regional types with distinct physical and behavioral traits passed on to their offspring. The physical traits used to distinguish chicken breeds are size, plumage color, comb type, skin color, number of toes, amount of feathering, egg color, and place of origin.[1] They are also roughly divided by primary use, whether for eggs, meat, or ornamental purposes, and with some considered to be dual-purpose.[1] In the 21st century, chickens are frequently bred according to predetermined breed standards set down by governing organizations. The first of such standards was the British Poultry Standard, which is still in publication today.[2][3] Other standards include the Standard of Perfection, the Australian Poultry S ...more...

1872 Cavite mutiny

The Cavite mutiny of 1872 was an uprising of Filipino military personnel of Fort San Felipe, the Spanish arsenal in Cavite,[1]:107 Philippine Islands (then also known as part of the Spanish East Indies) on January 20, 1872. Around 200 locally recruited colonial troops and laborers rose up in the belief that it would elevate to a national uprising. The mutiny was unsuccessful, and government soldiers executed many of the participants and began to crack down on a burgeoning Philippines nationalist movement. Many scholars believe that the Cavite Mutiny of 1872 was the beginning of Filipino nationalism that would eventually lead to the Philippine Revolution of 1896.[2] Causes The primary cause of the mutiny is believed to be an order from Governor-General Rafael de Izquierdo to subject the soldiers of the Engineering and Artillery Corps to personal taxes, from which they were previously exempt. The taxes required them to pay a monetary sum as well as to perform forced labor called, polo y servicio. The mutiny w ...more...
