Excerpt: Halla, in D. J. MacHale's Pendragon, refers to "everything. Every territory, every person, every living thing, every time there ever was" (according to the character Press Tilton in The Merchant of Death). The following is the list of territories of Halla. The turning point, traveler, and other descriptions of each territory individually are included. Cloral (pronounced ) is an almost entirely water-based territory. It has a tropical climate and is described to be the "paradise" of Halla. Water occupies about 99% of Cloral, whose human population lives on "habitats", or floating cities. This population has learned to use the water they live on in their inventions, coming up with efficient transport, water-based projectiles, and an advanced form of rebreather. The only known land in Cloral is "Faar", an island brought up from the ocean floor late in The Lost City of Faar. The turning point on Cloral was the invention of a fertilizer that was shown to increase plant growth exponentially. However, as a result of Saint Dane's intervention, it mutated crops to be poisonous, leaving food in a drastically short supply. Saint Dane's plan was to find and destroy Faar, because they had the means to spread an antidote to the poisonous fertilizer. Benn Spader, who was replaced by his son, Vo Spader after having eaten food poisoned by the fertilizer. Saint Dane blew a hole in Faar's protective dome, sealing off the boats with the antidote and flooding Faar. However, Bobby triggered the transpire of Faar, which rose Faar to the surface of the ocean. Spader's acolyte, Wu Yenza, is his superior in the Cloral Aquaneer force. She is Chief Aquaneer and is compassionate toward her subordinates, but can be very strict. Spader implies that he wishes to court her. The quigs of Cloral are giant, vicious sharks, approximately 20 feet (6.1 m) long. Just like all quigs they have yellow eyes, are fierce fighters, and are not very smart. Both the flumes on Cloral are in underwater caves, in air

Calvin and Hobbes
Calvin and Hobbes
Source: Wikipedia. Pages: 26. Chapters: Bill Watterson, Secondary characters in Calvin and Hobbes, Calvin's alter egos, List of Calvin and Hobbes books, Calvin and Hobbes in translation. Excerpt: Calvin and Hobbes is a syndicated daily comic strip that was written and illustrated by American cartoonist Bill Watterson, and syndicated from November 18, 1985, to December 31, 1995. It follows the humorous antics of Calvin, a precocious and adventurous six-year-old boy, and Hobbes, his sardonic stuffed tiger. The pair are named after John Calvin, a 16th-century French Reformation theologian, and Thomas Hobbes, a 17th-century English political philosopher. At the height of its popularity, Calvin and Hobbes was featured in over 2,400 newspapers worldwide; as of January 2010, reruns of the strip still appear in more than 50 countries. Nearly 45 million copies of the 18 Calvin and Hobbes books have been sold. Calvin and Hobbes is set in the contemporary United States in an unspecified suburban area. The strip depicts Calvin's flights of fantasy and his friendship with Hobbes, and also examines Calvin's relationships with family and classmates. Hobbes' dual nature is a defining motif for the strip: to Calvin, Hobbes is a live anthropomorphic tiger; all the other characters see him as an inanimate stuffed toy. Though the series does not mention specific political figures or current events, it does explore broad issues like environmentalism, public education, and the flaws of opinion polls. Calvin and Hobbes was conceived when Bill Watterson, working in an advertising job he detested, began devoting his spare time to cartooning, his true love. He explored various strip ideas but all were rejected by the syndicates. United Feature Syndicate finally responded positively to one strip, which featured a side character (the main character's little brother) who had a stuffed tiger. Told that these characters were the strongest, Watterson began a new strip centered on them. Though United Feature rejected the new strip, eventually Universal Press Syndicate decided to take it. The first strip was published on November 18, 1985, and the series quickly became a hit. Within a year o

Chapters: Phantom Manor, Haunted Mansion Holiday, List of Haunted Mansion characters, The Haunted Mansion, Grim Grinning Ghosts, Hatbox Ghost, The Official Album of the Disneyland Resort, The Haunted Mansion - 30th Anniversary, The Haunted Mansion - 40th Anniversary. Excerpt: The Haunted Mansion is a dark ride located at Disneyland, the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disneyland, and Disneyland Park in Paris (as Phantom Manor). Each incarnation of the attraction features a ride-through tour of a haunted house in Omnimover vehicles called Doom Buggies, preceded by a walk-through show in the queue. The attraction showcases a number of age-old tricks, advanced special effects, and spectral Audio-Animatronics. Entering the queuing area through a pair of ornate gates, guests find themselves in the mansion's well-tended gardens and courtyards. The queuing path leads guests past a mausoleum featuring humorous epitaphs, and a white carriage hearse, led by an invisible horse, out of which sounds can be heard. The path leads guests onto the porch, where they are led into the mansion's foyer by somber maids and butlers. The guests are ushered into an octagonal portrait gallery and encouraged by the staff to move into the "dead center" of the room. As the wall behind them slides closed, the Ghost Host (voiced by Paul Frees) introduces himself with an eerie voice: "Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Haunted Mansion. I am your host - your 'ghost host.' ...and taunts them: "Your cadaverous pallor betrays an aura of foreboding, almost as though you sense a disquieting metamorphosis. Is this haunted room actually stretching? Or is it your imagination, hmm...?" As the voice speaks, the guest's eye is drawn up to four portraits on every other wall of the octagonal room. The floor quietly sinks downwards, elongating the paintings and revealing the morbidly comedic fates of previous guests: "...And consider this dismaying observation: this chamber has no windows, and no doors... which offers you this chilling challenge: to find a way out! Of course, there's always my way..." The lights go out, lightning and thunder effects fill the gallery and, in a rare instance of Disney dark humor, a glimpse of the earthly remains of the Ghost Host is shown hanging fr

Excerpt: This is a list of bus routes operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), branded as Metrobus. Many are the descendants of streetcar lines operated by the Capital Transit Company or its predecessors. Odd-numbered routes are typically part-time variants of even-numbered routes. At one time, odd numbered routes were express routes, but that distinction has been abandoned. Most D.C. and Maryland routes are grouped by their first digit. When this system was laid out in 1936, the following clustering was used: Streetcars Buses These routes connect schools to Washington Metro stations or other local points. They are primarily intended for students, but are open to anyone, and stop at all stops along their routes. The Maryland Transit Administration was originally known as the Baltimore Metropolitan Transit Authority, then the Maryland Mass Transit Administration before it changed to its current name. The MTA took over the operations of the old Baltimore Transit Company on April 30, 1970. A former no. 8 streetcar, the predecessor to bus Route 8, at the Baltimore Streetcar Museum. This vehicle is currently used to give rides to visitors.Many routes of the agency's current bus lines are based on the original streetcars operated by the Baltimore Transit Company and its parent companies between the 1890s and 1960s. All of these routes were ultimately converted to rubber tire bus operations, and many were consolidated, extended into newly developed areas, or otherwise reconfigured to keep up with the ridership demands of the times. Additional routes and extensions were added in later years to serve newly developed communities and to feed into Metro and Light Rail stations. With the growth in popularity of the private automobile during the 20th century, streetcar and bus ridership declined, and the needs for public transportation changed. Mass transit in Baltimore and other cities shifted from a corporate operation to a tax-subsidized, state-run s

Excerpt: Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical is a rock musical with a book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot. A product of the hippie counter-culture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, several of its songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement. The musical's profanity, its depiction of the use of illegal drugs, its treatment of sexuality, its irreverence for the American flag, and its nude scene caused much comment and controversy. The musical broke new ground in musical theatre by defining the genre of "rock musical", using a racially integrated cast, and inviting the audience onstage for a "Be-In" finale. Hair tells the story of the "tribe", a group of politically active, long-haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. Ultimately, Claude must decide whether to resist the draft as his friends have done, or to succumb to the pressures of his parents (and conservative America) to serve in Vietnam, compromising his pacifistic principles and risking his life.

Excerpt: Norton Internet Security, developed by Symantec Corporation, provides malware prevention and removal during subscription period and uses signatures and heuristics to identify viruses. Other features include a software firewall, e-mail spam filtering, and phishing protection. Symantec distributes the product as a download, a box copy, and as OEM software. Norton Internet Security held a 61% market share in the US retail security suite category in the first half of 2007. In this study, competitors, in terms of market share, included security suites from CA, Trend Micro, and Kaspersky Lab. In August 1990 Symantec acquired Peter Norton Computing from Peter Norton. Norton and his company developed various applications for DOS, including an antivirus. Symantec continued the development of the acquired technologies, now marketed under the name of "Norton", with the tagline "from Symantec". Norton's crossed-arm pose, a registered U.S. trademark, was featured on Norton product packaging. However, his pose was later moved to the spine of the packaging, and later dropped altogether. Existing users of the 2006, 2007, 2008 or 2009 versions can upgrade to the latest version of the Norton software without buying a new subscription. The upgraded product, in this case Norton Internet Security 2011, uses the number of days left on a user's subscription. Norton Internet Security 2000, released January 10, 2000, was Symantec's first foray beyond virus protection and content control filters. Its release followed an alliance between Internet provider Excite@Home and antivirus vendor McAfee.com to provide Internet subscribers with McAfee's new firewall software, McAfee Personal Firewall.

Excerpt: The purpose of the Bologna Process (or Bologna Accords) is the creation of the European Higher Education Area by making academic degree standards and quality assurance standards more comparable and compatible throughout Europe, in particular under the Lisbon Recognition Convention. It is named after the place it was proposed, the University of Bologna, with the signing in 1999 of the Bologna declaration by Education Ministers from 29 European countries. It was opened up to other countries signatory to the European Cultural Convention of the Council of Europe; further governmental meetings have been held in Prague (2001), Berlin (2003), Bergen (2005), London (2007), and Leuven (2009). Before the signing of the Bologna declaration, the Magna Charta Universitatum had been issued at a meeting of university rectors celebrating the 900th anniversary of the University of Bologna - and thus of (Western) European universities - in 1988. One year before the Bologna declaration, education ministers Claude Allegre (France), Jürgen Rüttgers (Germany), Luigi Berlinguer (Italy) and the Baroness Blackstone (UK) signed the Sorbonne declaration in Paris 1998, committing themselves to "harmonising the architecture of the European Higher Education system". It is a common misconception that the Bologna Process is an EU initiative. The Bologna Process currently has 47 participating countries, whereas there are only 27 Member States of the EU. While the European Commission is an important contributor to the Bologna Process, the Lisbon Recognition Convention was actually prepared by the Council of Europe and members of the Europe Region of UNESCO. Current signatories and thus members of the "European Higher Education Area" are: European Higher Education Area This makes Monaco and San Marino the only members of the Council of Europe which did not adopt the Bologna Process (although they might consider joining once France and Italy have implemented it).

Excerpt: The Left Hand of Darkness is a 1969 science fiction novel by Ursula K. Le Guin. It is part of the Hainish Cycle, a series of books by Le Guin all set in the fictional Hainish universe. Harold Bloom wrote in the introduction to his anthology of criticism on the book that "Le Guin, more than Tolkien, has raised fantasy into high literature, for our time". It won the 1969 Nebula and 1970 Hugo awards, and is considered by some to be one of the first major works of feminist science fiction. Plans for a feature film and video game based on the books were announced by Phobos Entertainment Holdings in 2004, but appear to have since stalled. The universe of The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin appears in a series of books, beginning in 1966 with Rocannon's World, her first novel, and running through several of her early works. The series describes the interplanetary expansion started by the first race of humanity on the planet Hain, leading to the formation of the League of All Worlds, and eventually expanding to the eighty-three world collective called the Ekumen. This novel takes place many centuries in the future - no date is given, though the year 4870 has been suggested. An envoy, Genly Ai, is on a planet called Winter ("Gethen" in the language of its own people) to convince the citizens to join the Ekumen. Winter is, as its name indicates, a planet that is always cold, and its citizens are neither female nor male: they have gender identities and sexual urges only once a month. These conditions have affected the ways that civilizations on Winter have developed, with the most notable effect being that there has never been a war on the planet. There are, however, arcane rules of politics and diplomacy that the envoy must learn in order to survive. His fortune changes quickly, according to what political faction is in power at the time in the country he is residing in: in one country, for instance, the Prime Minister arranges an audience with the king for him, bu
