In computer graphics and digital imaging, image scaling refers to the resizing of a digital image. In video technology, the magnification of digital material is known as upscaling or resolution enhancement, when scaling a vector graphic image, the graphic primitives that make up the image can be scaled using geometric transformations, with no loss of image quality. When scaling a raster image, a new image with a higher or lower number of pixels must be generated. In the case of decreasing the pixel number this usually results in a quality loss. Image scaling can be interpreted as a form of image resampling FIX or image reconstruction from the view of the Nyquist sampling theorem, the image is reduced to the information that can be carried by the smaller image. In the case of up sampling, a reconstruction filter takes the place of the anti-aliasing filter. A more sophisticated approach to up scaling treats the problem as a problem, solving the question of generating a plausible image which. A variety of techniques have been applied for this, including optimization techniques with regularization terms, an image size can be changed in several ways.
Diagonal lines, for example, show a stairway shape, although this is desirable for continuous-tone images, this algorithm reduces contrast in a way that may be undesirable for line art. Bicubic interpolation yields substantially better results, with only an increase in computational complexity. Sinc and Lanczos resampling Sinc resampling in theory provides the best possible reconstruction for a perfectly bandlimited signal, in practice, the assumptions behind sinc resampling are not completely met by real-world digital images. Lanczos resampling, an approximation to the method, yields better results. Bicubic interpolation can be regarded as an efficient approximation to Lanczos resampling. Box sampling One weakness of bilinear and related algorithms is that sample a specific number of pixels. The trivial solution to this issue is box sampling, which is to consider the target pixel a box on the original image and this ensures that all input pixels contribute to the output. The major weakness of this algorithm is that it is hard to optimize, mipmap Another solution to the downscale problem of bi-sampling scaling are mipmaps. A mipmap is a set of downscale copies.
When downscaling the nearest larger mipmap is used as the origin and this is algorithm is fast, and easy to optimize

Daniel Eugene Dan Spivey is an American retired professional wrestler. He is best known for his appearances with World Championship Wrestling, the World Wrestling Federation, Spivey was born in Tampa, Florida. He attended the University of Georgia, where he played football for the Georgia Bulldogs for three seasons as an end and was named an All-American football player in his sophomore year. Spivey aimed to play professionally and was drafted by the New York Jets. Spivey spent several years working in a number of jobs in Tampa before meeting professional wrestler Dusty Rhodes, Spivey was trained as a wrestler by Dusty Rhodes, the then-booker for Championship Wrestling from Florida, and made his debut in 1983. Spivey and Scott Hall formed a tag team in CWF called American Starship, Spivey adopted the ring name Eagle and Hall the ring name Coyote. The men wore furry boots, bright masks and silver pants and boots, in 1984, Rhodes moved from Championship Wrestling from Florida to the Charlotte, North Carolina-based Jim Crockett Promotions, bringing Spivey and Hall with him.
Initially, American Starship worked only sporadically, at first they were booked so sparingly that the two were given a job for the Charlotte Orioles as part of the ground crew. After working in MACW the duo joined Bob Geigels NWA Central States territory based in Kansas City in 1985, the duo had a shot at the NWA Central States Tag Team Champions Marty Jannetty and Bulldog Bob Brown but did not manage to win the titles. Spivey’s stay in the Central States territory was short-lived, according to Scott Hall Spivey did not like Kansas City, Spivey returned to the Carolinas where he worked as American Starship Eagle. In the fall of 1985, Spivey signed with the World Wrestling Federation and started working without a mask, Spivey was brought in to team with Mike Rotunda as The U. S. Express after Barry Windham left the federation, the team had their first match together on November 1,1985 less than a month after Spivey joined the WWF. The team was billed as The American Express, but most people referred to them as the U. S.
Express II since the patriotic gimmick of the original U. S, Express was recycled with Spivey taking Barry Windhams place. Express feud with the Dream Team, but once they were proven unsuccessful, during this time Spivey took part in the WrestleMania 2 Wrestlers and Football players Battle Royal. Spivey was eliminated by The Iron Sheik without much fanfare, once the American Express reunited, they feuded with The Moondogs, The Hart Foundation, and The Islanders, whom the team faced in their last match together on February 9,1987. Not long before Rotundo left the WWF, Spivey began to be billed as Golden Boy Danny Spivey which continued for his singles run after Rotundo left and his in-ring appearance at the time led to many fans labelling him a Hulk Hogan clone. As the Golden Boy, Spivey wrestled in yellow trunks and boots which added to his height, Spivey took part in the 1986 King of the Ring tournament, losing to Nikolai Volkoff in the first round
Eagle (British comics)
Eagle was a seminal British childrens British comics periodical, first published from 1950 to 1969, and in a relaunched format from 1982 to 1994. It was founded by Marcus Morris, an Anglican vicar from Lancashire, Morris edited a Southport parish magazine called The Anvil, but felt that the church was not communicating its message effectively. Simultaneously disillusioned with contemporary literature, he and Anvil artist Frank Hampson created a dummy comic based on Christian values. Morris solicited the idea to several Fleet Street publishers, with little success, following a huge publicity campaign, the first issue of Eagle was released in April 1950. Revolutionary in its presentation and content, it was enormously successful, featured in colour on the front cover was its most recognisable story, Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future, created by Hampson with meticulous attention to detail. Other popular stories included Riders of the Range and P. C, Eagle contained news and sport sections, and educational cutaway diagrams of sophisticated machinery.
A members club was created, and a range of related merchandise was licensed for sale, amidst a takeover of the periodicals publisher and a series of acrimonious disputes, Morris left in 1959, Hampson followed shortly thereafter. Although Eagle continued in various forms, a lowering of editorial standards preceded plummeting sales. Eagle was relaunched in 1982 and ran for over 500 issues before being dropped by its publisher in 1994, Eagle was founded by John Marcus Harston Morris. Morris was born in the Lancashire town of Preston, and in 1918 moved to Southport and he graduated from Brasenose College, Oxford with a second-class degree in Literae Humaniores, and at Wycliffe Hall gained a second in theology in 1939. He became a priest the year, and served as a chaplain in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve from 1941 to 1943. In 1945 he became vicar of St. James Church in Birkdale, Morris felt that the church was completely out of touch with the people whom it was supposed to represent. He gradually expanded the parish magazine—printed on four pages of cheap paper— into The Anvil, Morris managed to employ several notable contributors on Anvil, such as C. S.
Lewis, and Harold Macmillan. I. s. He realised that a market existed for a childrens comics periodical which featured stories in cartoon form. Morriss article provoked a reaction from its readers, letters of support flooded into his home. Morris envisioned a character called Lex Christian, a tough, fighting parson in the slums of the East End of London, whose adventures would be told in strip cartoon form, illustrated by Hampson. The idea gained the support of Terence Horsley, editor of the Sunday Empire News, Morris met Hampson and proposed instead an entirely new childrens publication. Hampson was enthusiastic about the idea, and in May that year the two work on a dummy of it
Pop Goes the Weasel
Goes the Weasel” is an English nursery rhyme and singing game. It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 5249, the jack-in-the-box children’s toy often plays the melody. There are many different versions of the lyrics to the song, in England, most share the basic verse, Half a pound of tuppenny rice, Half a pound of treacle. That’s the way the money goes, Pop. goes the weasel, often a second verse is added, Every night when I get home The monkey’s on the table, Take a stick and knock it off, Pop. goes the weasel. And, Up and down the city road In and out the Eagle, that’s the way the money goes, Pop. goes the weasel. The tune appears to have begun as dance music, to which words were added, a music sheet acquired by the British Library in 1853 describes a dance, Pop. Goes the Weasel, as An Old English Dance, as performed at Her Majestys & The Nobilities Balls and it had a tune very similar to that used today but only the words Pop. The dance became popular, and featured on stage as well as in dance-halls.
By September of the year the title was being used as a scornful riposte. Additional verses related to both traditions are, My mother taught me how to sew, And how to thread the needle, Every time my finger slips, Pop. goes the weasel. You may try to sew and sew, And never make something regal, So roll it up and let it go, I went a-hunting in the woods, It wasn’t very legal, The dog and I were caught with the goods, Pop. goes the weasel. I said I didn’t hunt or sport, The warden looked at my beagle, He said to tell it to the court, Pop. goes the weasel. The song seems to have crossed the Atlantic in the 1850s where U. S. newspapers soon afterwards call it the latest English dance, and the phrase Pop. goes the weasel soon took hold. The remaining words were still unstable in Britain, and as a result some of the U. S. lyrics are different and may have an entirely different source. The following lyric was printed in Boston in 1858, All around the cobbler’s house, and after them in double haste, Pop. goes the weasel.
In 1901 in New York the opening lines were, All around the chicken coop, the most common recent version was not recorded until 1914. In addition to the three verses above, American versions often include some of the following, All around the mulberry bush, the monkey stopped to pull up his sock, Pop. goes the weasel. Half a pound of tuppenny rice, Half a pound of treacle, mix it up and make it nice, Pop. goes the weasel
Berol is a British brand of stationery products, currently commercialized by Paper Mate. The company, based in Lichfield, produced pencils, Berol is now a brand of imported products, with UK manufacturing closed since Berols purchase by Sanford L. P. a division of the Newell Companies, in 1995. The Eagle Pencil Company was founded by Bavarian immigrant Daniel Berolzheimer in 1856 opening a shop in New York City. In 1894 the company extended its business opening office, Eagle Pencil opened a factory in Tottenham, that started operating towards the end of 1907. The outbreak of the World War II in 1939 saw the factory pause pencil manufacture, a series of post-war corporate acquisitions meant that the Eagle Pencil name was no longer appropriate. In 1969 the company name was changed to Berol, the owning family’s now-shortened surname, Berols head office remained at the Tottenham factory until the need for extra production space led to a move to Whetstone, London. In June 1967 the company opened a purpose built factory on the Hardwick Industrial Estate in King’s Lynn, the company’s head office moved from Whetstone to Kings Lynn in 1978.
In 1986, Chairman Kenneth Berol, announced the intention to sell the company as there was no sixth generation family successor. In 1987, Berol was acquired by the Empire Pencil Corporation of Tennessee, in February 1992 the company decided to close the Tottenham factory and moved some production to Kings Lynn. 1995 saw the Newell Company acquire the Berol Corporation with Berol being placed in its Sanford division,2003 saw the Kings Lynn factory close with 230 redundancies. Some production was transferred to the former Parker Pen factory in Newhaven, from on, all Berol products are imported
The Eagle Nebula is a young open cluster of stars in the constellation Serpens, discovered by Jean-Philippe de Chéseaux in 1745–46. The nebula contains several active star-forming gas and dust regions, including the Pillars of Creation, the Eagle Nebula is part of a diffuse emission nebula, or H II region, which is catalogued as IC4703. This region of current star formation is about 7000 light-years distant. A spire of gas that can be seen coming off the nebula in the part is approximately 9.5 light-years or about 90 trillion kilometers long. The cluster associated with the nebula has approximately 8100 stars, which are concentrated in a gap in the molecular cloud to the north-west of the Pillars. The brightest star has an apparent magnitude of +8.24 and it is actually a binary star formed of an O3. 5V star plus an O7. 5V companion. This star has a mass of roughly 80 solar masses, the clusters age has been estimated to be 1–2 million years. The descriptive names reflect impressions of the shape of the central pillar rising from the southeast into the central luminous area, the name Star Queen Nebula was introduced by Robert Burnham, Jr.
reflecting his characterization of the central pillar as the Star Queen shown in silhouette. Images taken by Jeff Hester and Paul Scowen using the Hubble Space Telescope in 1995 greatly improved understanding of processes inside the nebula. One of these photographs became famous as the Pillars of Creation, the small dark areas in the photograph are believed to be protostars. These columns – which resemble stalagmites protruding from the floor of a cavern – are composed of hydrogen gas and dust. Inside the columns and on their surface astronomers have found knots or globules of denser gas, stars are being formed inside some of these EGGs. X-ray images from the Chandra observatory compared with Hubbles Pillars image have shown that X-ray sources do not coincide with the pillars, any protostars in the pillars EGGs are not yet hot enough to emit X-rays. Evidence from the Spitzer Telescope suggests that the pillars in M16 may already have been destroyed by a supernova explosion, hot gas observed by Spitzer in 2007 suggests that the area was disturbed by a supernova that exploded some 8000 to 9000 years ago
Red Menace (comics)
The story is set 1953 Los Angeles at the time of Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee trials. At one of the House of Un-American Activities Committee trials, a hero named The Eagle unmasks himself as World War II veteran Steve Tremaine. The Committee uses his war time friendship with Ivan The Bear Petrovich, by the next day, every newspaper calls him Red Menace. Despite the governments banning of his vigilantism, The Eagle continues to sneak out at night and fight crime and he keeps in touch with his old friend Petrovich as well. Unknowingly, Tremaine leads a group of anti-communist extremists to Petrovichs location after they listen in on a conversation between the two, Petrovich is brutally murdered by the men. Upon hearing the news, Tremaine is driven to a depression that leads him to heavy drinking for a period of more than three weeks. At a scuffle with some men at a bar over Tremaines alleged communist sympathies, Tremaine is introduced to a superhero called the Gray Falcon who fights crime
Eagle Computer of Los Gatos, was an early microcomputer manufacturing company. Spun off from Audio-Visual Laboratories, it first sold a line of popular CP/M computers which were praised in the computer magazines of the day. After the IBM PC was launched, Eagle produced the Eagle 1600 series, when it became evident that the buying public wanted actual clones of the IBM PC, even if a non-clone had better features, Eagle responded with a line of clones, including a portable. The Eagle PCs were always rated highly in computer magazines, the AVL Eagle I and II had audio-visual connectors on the back. As a separate company, Eagle sold the Eagle I, II, III, IV, and V computer models, and external SCSI/SASI hard-disk boxes called the File 10 and the File 40. The first Eagle computers were produced by Audio Visual Labs, a company founded by Chuck Kappenman in New Jersey in the early 1970s to produce proprietary large-format multi-image equipment, Kappenman introduced the worlds first microprocessor-controlled multi-image programming computers, the ShowPro III and V, which were dedicated controllers.
In 1980, AVL introduced the first non-dedicated controller, the Eagle and this first Eagle computer used a 16 kHz processor and had a 5 1⁄4-inch disk drive for online storage. The Eagle ran PROCALL software for writing cues to control up to 30 Ektagraphic projectors, Digital control data was sourced via an RCA or XLR-type audio connector at the rear of the unit. AVLs proprietary ClockTrak was sourced from the channel of a multitrack analog audio tape deck. The timed list of events in the Eagle was synchronized to the ClockTrak, versions of PROCALL included the option of using SMPTE timecode. Most programmers abandoned ClockTrak for SMPTE, as more programs began to incorporate video. Two separate digital data streams were output from the Eagle, via RCA or XLR-type audio connectors and these telemetry streams, called PosiTrak, each controlled up to five external slide projector control devices manufactured by AVL, known as Doves. AVL Eagles and associated products, when set up and powered, were extremely reliable.
During the 1970s through the early 1990s, when the products of its competitors were not as reliable nor readily available, the development of large-screen electronic media and HDTV ushered out the era of film-based multi-image productions. All CP/M Eagles had the basic design, except for the storage devices. The exception to this was a model, in which the keyboard formed a removable lid that could be snapped to the main unit for traveling. An attractive off-white case held the entire computer, the top section held a green monochrome monitor on the left, and one or two full-height storage devices, stacked one above the other, on the right. An anti-glare screen was held in place against the front of the monitor, the bottom section projected forward and had the keyboard in its top, and the system logo
Beacon Street Union
The Beacon Street Union was an American psychedelic rock band in the late 1960s, named for a street in their native Boston. The band was composed of Boston University students, singer John Lincoln Wright, guitarist/singer Paul Tartachny, bassist/singer Wayne Ulaky, keyboardist Robert Rhodes, with the exception of a few rock standards, their diverse music was composed by members of the band, primarily Wright and Ulaky. The bands label, MGM Records promoted them as part of the so-called Bosstown Sound, the band met with little nationwide success. Their debut album, The Eyes of the Beacon Street Union, the band relocated to New York and recorded its second album, The Clown Died in Marvin Gardens. Wright, Ulaky and Rhodes recorded another album, Come Under Nancys Tent in 1970 under the name Eagle for Janus Records, Wright went on to perform and record as a country artist shorty after, and fronted the Sour Mash Boys. He regularly toured across North America, through to the mid-1990s and he died on 4 December 2011 following a series of strokes and a longtime drinking problem.
Due to health problems, he stopped performing in 2007, bandmate and producer Larry Flint admitted by 2007 that Wright was in pretty bad physical shape, and even his voice was going, with an album recorded that year left unreleased. At the time of his death, he was separated from his wife who refused to him to ensure that he stayed on her health insurance.
