Nong Samet Refugee Camp
Nong Samet Refugee Camp, located in Nong Samet Village, Khok Sung District, Sa Kaeo Province, was one of the largest refugee camps on the Thai-Cambodian border and served as a power base for the Khmer People's National Liberation Front until its destruction by the Vietnamese military in late 1984. Refugees began entering Thailand in large numbers after Vietnam invaded Kampuchea in December 1978 and forced the Khmer Rouge out of power. A refugee settlement was established near the Thai village of Ban Nong Samet sometime in May 1979, received its first shipment of food aid on October 11; the camp was referred to as Chumrum Thmei to distinguish it from its neighbor and rival Mak Mun Camp, known as Chumrum Chas. Nong Samet was renamed 007 "because of its many intrigues" and in August 1980 was christened Rithysen, after a Khmer folk hero "who survived when his brothers and sisters were devoured through the machinations of a cannibal ogress, who tricked the ogress' daughter." Nong Samet Refugee Camp was located just inside the Thai border, about one kilometer northeast of Mak Mun and two kilometers northeast of Nong Chan.
All three camps were dominated by autonomous warlords who, with several hundred undisciplined and badly-equipped guerrillas, controlled commercial activities and managed food distribution to the civilian population. The camp's first leader was Long Rithia, a former infantry captain in the Khmer National Armed Forces 7th Division who rallied several hundred soldiers from that unit and on October 5 established the Angkor National Liberation Movement. In December 1979, In-Sakhan, another former officer from FANK, living on the border since 1975, declared himself leader of Nong Samet, he realized that the size of the camp's civilian population would determine his power base, encouraged a thriving border marketplace from which smugglers brought high-demand commodities into deprived Kampuchea. Within a short time Nong Samet's market attracted thousands of traders and black marketeers, the guides and guards needed to transport goods and cash in this nearly lawless region. Gold and precious stones substituted for currency on the border, In-Sakhan's soldiers served as security escorts.
In-Sakhan reported to International Committee of the Red Cross that the camp's population was at least 200,000 and aid agencies provided food and water for 180,000 people until December 1979 when aid workers heard that much of the food was being hoarded by the warlord. At this time the situation on the border was still too chaotic to do a proper census or to challenge In-Sakhan. Rivalry with neighboring camps Nong Chan and Mak Mun led to frequent armed violence. In-Sakhan had to defend the camp against the Khmer Rouge, who launched an attack on January 4, 1980 from nearby Phnom Chat; the camp was evacuated but the refugees returned. In late January 1980, ICRC and UNICEF attempted to bypass In-Sakhan and distribute food directly to Nong Samet's population, however without the warlord's cooperation this proved nearly impossible. In addition, it appeared that many Nong Samet residents were forced to go to Nong Chan to receive food because their rations were being confiscated by In-Sakhan's troops.
Accordingly, in late February 1980 aid agencies stopped distributing food in Nong Samet altogether. Two weeks UNICEF conducted a nutrition survey and found widespread levels of malnutrition and hunger in the camp population. ICRC decided to try direct distribution to locked warehouses inside the camp, to allow section leaders to distribute rice to the population. A crude "hut census" of the camp was attempted, but an attack on Mak Mun Camp in late March forced several thousand refugees to flee to Nong Samet, invalidating the census. Two days forces commanded by the Mak Mun warlord, Van Saren, attacked Nong Samet in retaliation. In a counterattack on March 22, Van Saren was killed by the Thai military, Mak Mun was closed on April 11 by the Thai government in an attempt to consolidate the population, most of which had relocated to Nong Chan and Nong Samet. In late May 1980 Nong Samet was moved to a site adjacent to the Prasaht Sdok Kok Thom, in an area with poor drainage and landmines left over from a previous conflict.
On July 12, 1980, troops commanded by Ung Chan Don, In-Sakhan's former ally, attacked Nong Samet and drove In-Sakhan to Aranyaprathet, where "on a calm Sunday evening, In-Sakhan surrendered to the Thai Third Infantry Battalion." He joined Prince Norodom Sihanouk's Armée Nationale Sihanoukiste forces. In-Sakhan was replaced by Om Luot with Thou Thon acting as civilian administrator. Om Luot had declared his loyalty to the KPNLF in February 1979, but tensions with General Dien Del and General Sak Sutsakhan led to Om Luot's murder on October 11, 1982. After this, Thou Thon became chief administrator of the camp. Nong Samet Camp soon became a primary recruiting location for Khmer People's National Liberation Armed Forces troops. Thou Thon was a model of strong yet considerate civilian leadership at a time when warlords controlled most of the border refugee population. According to Linda Mason and Roger Brown, who knew him in 1980: The Khmer refugees in Nong Samet Camp owed much to him, he had organized the camp -- digging ditches, cleaning up.
He had eliminated much of the thievery. He had helped organize an efficient distribution system so that everyone received rice… He was a hard worker…
LOT Polish Airlines Flight 7
LOT Flight 7 was an Ilyushin Il-62 that crashed near Okęcie Airport in Warsaw, Poland, on 14 March 1980, as the crew aborted a landing and attempted to go-around. All 87 crew and passengers died, it was caused by the disintegration of one of the turbine discs in one of the plane's engines, leading to uncontained engine failure. The turbine disc was found to have manufacturing faults. LOT initiated their transatlantic routes in the early 1970s, for which it decided to purchase Ilyushin Il-62; the aircraft which crashed was the first Il-62 that LOT had purchased for this purpose, manufactured in 1971. As with all Ilyushins purchased, it was named after a famous Polish historical figure, in this case the astronomer and polymath Nicolaus Copernicus who formulated the heliocentric model of the Universe. On its final flight, the aircraft was piloted by Captain Paweł Lipowczan and First Officer Tadeusz Łochocki. Flight 007 was scheduled to depart from Kennedy International Airport at about 19:00 local time on 13 March 1980, but it was delayed because of a heavy snowstorm.
It departed at 21:18, after nine hours of an uneventful flight, it was approaching Okęcie Airport at 11:13 local time. During their final approach, about one minute before the landing, the crew reported to Okęcie Air Traffic Control that the landing gear indicator light was not operating, that they would go-around and allow the flight engineer to check if it was caused by a burnt-out fuse or light bulb, or if there was some problem with the gears deploying. Okęcie Air Traffic Control: LOT 007, 5 degrees to the right. Okęcie ATC: LOT 007? LOT: Roger that... One moment, request a go-around. Okęcie ATC: Roger, runway heading and altitude 650 meters. LOT: Runway heading and 650; this was the last transmission from "Kopernik". Nine seconds the aircraft entered a steep dive. At 11:14:35, after 26 seconds of uncontrolled descent, the aircraft clipped a tree with its right wing and impacted the ice-covered moat of a 19th-century military fortress at a speed of 380 km/h at a 20-degree down angle, 950 meters away from the runway threshold and 100 meters from a residential area.
At the last moment Captain Paweł Lipowczan, using nothing but the plane's ailerons, managed to avoid hitting a correctional facility for teenagers located at Rozwojowa street. On impact, the aircraft disintegrated. On the scene, a diving team was trying to recover parts of the aircraft from the moat, but it was far too murky; the body of Captain Lipowczan was found lying on the street about sixty meters from the crash site. Among the 87 fatalities were Polish singer Anna Jantar, American ethnomusicologist Alan P. Merriam, six Polish students returning home from an AIESEC conference in New York and a contingent of the U. S. amateur boxing team. According to the doctors who arrived at the scene, many of the passengers were asleep when the plane hit the ground, but some of them – including many of the boxers – were aware that they were about to crash, as they held to their seats so that on impact, the muscles and tendons in their arms became severed; some reports suggested that some of the boxers survived the crash and drowned in the moat, but no evidence for this was presented.
At the time the "Kopernik" crashed, a conference on improvements in air travel safety was being held at Okęcie airport, less than a kilometer away. Ryszard Chmielewski, the flight engineer, was scheduled to fly to Warsaw on that day. Seven years as a flight engineer and instructor, monitoring the progress of flight engineer Wojciech Kłossek, he was on board LOT Flight 5055, which crashed killing all 183 people on board. Future light heavyweight and cruiserweight world champion boxer Bobby Czyz was booked to be on the flight as part of the aforementioned U. S. amateur team. However, due to a car accident the week before, he did not make the trip. Additionally, boxer Sal Cenicola injured his right shoulder in the weeks leading up the flight and did not make the trip because of his injuries; the police surrounded the site and removed any spectators. Both the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder were found quickly. While recovering the engines, the number-two engine was found to be cut in half, held together only by the fuel lines.
When the engine was further examined, the disc of the low-pressure turbine was found to be missing. The turbine disc was found about four kilometres from the site. After recovering the cockpit, the throttles of both engines 2 and 3 were found to be shut off, while on engine 4 the thrust was set to maximum; the investigating commission asked the Russians if an Il-62 was able to reach the runway with one engine operating.
The James Bond series focuses on a fictional British Secret Service agent created in 1953 by writer Ian Fleming, who featured him in twelve novels and two short-story collections. Since Fleming's death in 1964, eight other authors have written authorised Bond novels or novelizations: Kingsley Amis, Christopher Wood, John Gardner, Raymond Benson, Sebastian Faulks, Jeffery Deaver, William Boyd and Anthony Horowitz; the latest novel is Forever and a Day by Anthony Horowitz, published in May 2018. Additionally Charlie Higson wrote a series on a young James Bond, Kate Westbrook wrote three novels based on the diaries of a recurring series character, Moneypenny; the character has been adapted for television, comic strip, video games and film. The films are the longest continually running film series of all time and have grossed over $7.040 billion in total, making it the fourth-highest-grossing film series to date, which started in 1962 with Dr. No, starring Sean Connery as Bond; as of 2019, there have been twenty-four films in the Eon Productions series.
The most recent Bond film, stars Daniel Craig in his fourth portrayal of Bond. There have been two independent productions of Bond films: Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again. In 2015 the series was estimated to be worth $19.9 billion, making James Bond one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time. The Bond films are renowned for a number of features, including the musical accompaniment, with the theme songs having received Academy Award nominations on several occasions, two wins. Other important elements which run through most of the films include Bond's cars, his guns, the gadgets with which he is supplied by Q Branch; the films are noted for Bond's relationships with various women, who are sometimes referred to as "Bond girls". Ian Fleming created the fictional character of James Bond as the central figure for his works. Bond is an intelligence officer in the Secret Intelligence Service known as MI6. Bond is known by his code number, 007, was a Royal Naval Reserve Commander. Fleming based his fictional creation on a number of individuals he came across during his time in the Naval Intelligence Division during the Second World War, admitting that Bond "was a compound of all the secret agents and commando types I met during the war".
Among those types were his brother, involved in behind-the-lines operations in Norway and Greece during the war. Aside from Fleming's brother, a number of others provided some aspects of Bond's make up, including Conrad O'Brien-ffrench, Patrick Dalzel-Job and Bill "Biffy" Dunderdale; the name James Bond came from that of the American ornithologist James Bond, a Caribbean bird expert and author of the definitive field guide Birds of the West Indies. Fleming, a keen birdwatcher himself, had a copy of Bond's guide and he explained to the ornithologist's wife that "It struck me that this brief, Anglo-Saxon and yet masculine name was just what I needed, so a second James Bond was born", he further explained that: When I wrote the first one in 1953, I wanted Bond to be an dull, uninteresting man to whom things happened. On another occasion, Fleming said: "I wanted the simplest, plainest-sounding name I could find,'James Bond' was much better than something more interesting, like'Peregrine Carruthers'.
Exotic things would happen to and around him, but he would be a neutral figure—an anonymous, blunt instrument wielded by a government department." Fleming decided that Bond should resemble both American singer Hoagy Carmichael and himself and in Casino Royale, Vesper Lynd remarks, "Bond reminds me rather of Hoagy Carmichael, but there is something cold and ruthless." In Moonraker, Special Branch Officer Gala Brand thinks that Bond is "certainly good-looking... Rather like Hoagy Carmichael in a way; that black hair falling down over the right eyebrow. Much the same bones, but there was something a bit cruel in the mouth, the eyes were cold."Fleming endowed Bond with many of his own traits, including sharing the same golf handicap, the taste for scrambled eggs and using the same brand of toiletries. Bond's tastes are often taken from Fleming's own as was his behaviour, with Bond's love of golf and gambling mirroring Fleming's own. Fleming used his experiences of his espionage career and all other aspects of his life as inspiration when writing, including using names of school friends, acquaintances and lovers throughout his books.
It was not until the penultimate novel, You Only Live Twice, that Fleming gave Bond a sense of family background. The book was the first to be written after the release of Dr. No in cinemas and Sean Connery's depiction of Bond affected Fleming's interpretation of the character, to give Bond both a sense of humour and Scottish antecedents that were not present in the previous stories. In a fictional obituary, purportedly published in The Times, Bond's parents were given as Andrew Bond, from the village of Glencoe and Monique Delacroix, from the canton of Vaud, Switzerland. Fleming did not provide Bond's date of birth, but John Pearson's fictional biography of Bond, James Bond: The Authorized Biography of 007, gives Bond a birth date on 11 November 1920, while a study by John Griswold puts the date at 11 November 1921. Whilst serving in the Naval Intelligence Division, Fleming had planned to become an author and had told a friend, "I am going to write the spy story to end all spy stories." On 17 February 1952, he began wri
Korean Air Lines Flight 007
Korean Air Lines Flight 007 was a scheduled Korean Air Lines flight from New York City to Seoul via Anchorage, Alaska. On 1 September 1983, the South Korean airliner serving the flight was shot down by a Soviet Su-15 interceptor; the Boeing 747 airliner was en route from Anchorage to Seoul, but deviated from its original planned route and flew through Soviet prohibited airspace about the time of a U. S. aerial reconnaissance mission. The Soviet Air Forces treated the unidentified aircraft as an intruding U. S. spy plane, proceeded to destroy it with air-to-air missiles, after firing warning shots which were not seen by the KAL pilots. The Korean airliner crashed in the sea near Moneron Island west of Sakhalin in the Sea of Japan. All 269 passengers and crew aboard were killed, including Larry McDonald, a United States Representative from Georgia; the Soviets found the wreckage under the sea on September 15, found the flight recorders in October, but this information was kept secret until 1993.
The Soviet Union denied knowledge of the incident, but admitted shooting down the aircraft, claiming that it was on a MASINT spy mission. The Politburo of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union said it was a deliberate provocation by the United States to probe the Soviet Union's military preparedness, or to provoke a war; the White House accused the Soviet Union of obstructing rescue operations. The Soviet Armed Forces suppressed evidence sought by the International Civil Aviation Organization investigation, such as the flight recorders, which were released eight years after the dissolution of the Soviet Union; the incident was one of the most tense moments of the Cold War and resulted in an escalation of anti-Soviet sentiment in the United States. As a result of the incident, the United States altered tracking procedures for aircraft departing from Alaska; the interface of the autopilot used on airliners was redesigned to make it more ergonomic. In addition, the incident was one of the most important events that prompted the Reagan administration to allow worldwide access to the United States Global Positioning System.
The aircraft flying as Korean Air Lines Flight 007 was a Boeing 747-230B registered HL7442. The aircraft departed Gate 15 of John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York City on August 30, 1983, bound for Gimpo International Airport in Gangseo District, Seoul, 35 minutes behind its scheduled departure time of 23:50 EDT; the flight was carrying 23 crew members. After refueling at Anchorage International Airport in Anchorage, the aircraft, piloted on this leg of the journey by captain Chun Byung-in, first officer Son Dong-hui and Flight Engineer Kim Eui-dong, departed for Seoul at 04:00 AHDT on August 31, 1983; the aircrew had an unusually high ratio of crew to passengers, as six deadheading crew were on board. Twelve passengers occupied the upper deck first class, while in business all of 24 seats were taken. There were 22 children under the age of 12 years aboard. One hundred and thirty passengers planned to connect to other destinations such as Tokyo, Hong Kong, Taipei. United States Congressman Larry McDonald from Georgia, who at the time was the second president of the conservative John Birch Society, was on the flight.
Senator Jesse Helms of North Carolina, Senator Steve Symms of Idaho, Representative Carroll Hubbard of Kentucky were aboard sister flight KAL 015, which flew 15 minutes behind KAL 007. S.–South Korea Mutual Defense Treaty. The Soviets contended former U. S. president Richard Nixon was to have been seated next to Larry McDonald on KAL 007 but that the CIA warned him not to go, according to the New York Post and Telegraph Agency of the Soviet Union. After taking off from Anchorage, the flight was instructed by air traffic control to turn to a heading of 220 degrees. 90 seconds ATC directed the flight to "proceed direct Bethel when able". Upon arriving over Bethel, flight 007 entered the northernmost of five 50-mile wide airways, known as the NOPAC routes, that bridge the Alaskan and Japanese coasts. KAL 007's particular airway, R-20, passes just 17.5 miles from what was Soviet airspace off the coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula. The autopilot system used at the time had four basic control modes: HEADING, VOR/LOC, ILS, INS.
The HEADING mode maintained a constant magnetic course selected by the pilot. The VOR/LOC mode maintained the plane on a specific course, transmitted from a VOR or Localizer beacon selected by the pilot; the ILS mode caused the plane to track both vertical and lateral course beacons, which led to a specific runway selected by the pilot. The INS mode maintained the plane on lateral course lines between selected flight plan waypoints programmed into the INS computer; when the INS navigation systems were properly programmed with the filed flight plan waypoints, the pilot could turn the autopilot mode selector switch to the INS position and the plane would automatically track the programmed INS course line, provided the plane was headed in the proper direction and within 7.5 miles of that course line. If, the plane was more than 7.5 miles from the flight-planned
George O'Malley, M. D. is a fictional character from the medical drama television series Grey's Anatomy, which airs on the American Broadcasting Company in the United States.

John Doe writes on Meredith's hand "007" and she realizes it is George, she runs to tell the other surgeons and they rush him to surgery. However, he flatlines and is declared braindead. There is confusion on if John Doe is George and Callie confirms by a freckle on his hand, his organs are donated after Stevens confirms, what O'Malley would have wanted, he is buried a week later. T. R. Knight signed on for the pilot as O'Malley, expecting that the role might be short-lived, because he liked that the character was multi-faceted.

The BAR 007 was a Formula One car used by British American Racing in the 2005 Formula One season. The car was driven by Jenson Button and Takuma Sato, although Sato was replaced by Anthony Davidson for the Malaysian Grand Prix as he had the flu; the team's test driver was Enrique Bernoldi along with Davidson. The team had a poor start to the season, were involved in controversy over the minimum weight of their cars, were disqualified from one race, banned from another two; the team failed to score a point until the French Grand Prix. However, the team's fortunes were turning and Jenson Button scored points in all of the last 10 races, including two podium finishes. Takuma Sato only scored one point in the entire season, was subsequently sacked from the team; the 007 was a clear evolution of the BAR 006, successful for the team, leading to their second place in the 2004 championship behind Ferrari. The new 007 car was a much tighter design and overall it was smaller than the previous 006. BAR designers managed to save significant weight over the 006 car, despite greater safety testing being required for the 2005 season.
The engine and gearbox were not left untouched either. For the 2005 season, engines had to last 2 races. Honda created a brand new V10 unit, smaller and had a better centre of gravity than the 2004 engine; the gearbox was an evolution of the 2004 unit, with some modifications to allow it to fit in better with the new tight design. Halfway through the 2005 season, BAR introduced a multi profile front wing. Both BAR-Hondas were disqualified from the San Marino Grand Prix after it was found the cars could run below the minimum weight, stated by the FIA regulations of 605 kg. BAR disagreed with the report, claiming the cars could not run with less than 6 kg of fuel, therefore that pushed them over the minimum weight, they claimed that they thought it was during race weight the rules meant, not in post-race scrutineering. The FIA decided banning them from two races, including the Monaco Grand Prix. Jenson Button acted as a summariser for ITV F1 in the Monaco Grand Prix. BAR were going to contest the disqualification, but changed their minds.
Max Mosley wanted to have the team disqualified from the entire season. The 007 was set to be the final BAR car. At the end of the 2005 season, the engine supplier since 2000, secured 100% team ownership, purchasing it from British American Tobacco, the long term sponsor of the team; the cars would remain with the BAT sponsorship throughout 2006. In July 2006, the car was used to achieve a top speed of 397.481 km/h at the Bonneville Salt Flats
