Federal Capital Territory, Nigeria

The Federal Capital Territory known as FCT, is a federal territory in central Nigeria. Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria, is located in this territory. FCT was formed in 1976 from parts of the states of old Kwara, Niger and Plateau States with the bulk of landmass carved out of Niger State, it is within the Middle Belt region of the country. Unlike the States of Nigeria, which are headed by elected Governors, it is administered by the Federal Capital Territory Administration, headed by a minister appointed by the President; the Federal Capital Territory known as FCT was created upon the promulgation of decree number 6 of 1976. It came into existence due to a need to find a replacement for the capital city of Lagos which had become congested and had little space for expansion; the area chosen as the new capital was principally Gwariland with high concentrations of Muslims and Christians and high degree of neutrality from the dominant ethnic groups. Decree 6 of 1976, gave the federal government rights over land within the territory.

The population density prior to the takeover by the government was sparse with a population of 120,000 residents living in 840 villages and of Gwari heritage. Inhabitants were relocated nearby towns like Suleja in Niger state and New Karshi in Nasarawa State on the outskirts of the territory; the territory is located just north of the confluence of the Niger Benue River. It is bordered by the states of Niger to the West and North, Kaduna to the northeast, Nasarawa to the east and south and Kogi to the southwest. Lying between latitude 8.25 and 9.20 north of the equator and longitude 6.45 and 7.39 east of Greenwich Meridian, Abuja is geographically located in the center of the country. The Federal Capital Territory has a landmass of 7,315 km2, it is situated within the Savannah region with moderate climatic conditions. Minerals found in the FCT include marble, clay and tantalite; the hills of the FCT provide home to many bushbuck, forest Black duiker, bush pig and red-flanked duiker. Found in FCT woodland are leopard, roan antelope, Western hartebeest, warthog, grey duiker, dog-faced baboon, patas monkey and green monkey.

While the Federal Capital Territory Administration administers the whole of the Federal Capital Territory, the Federal Capital Development Authority manages the construction and infrastructure development of the region. The capital city Abuja is located inside the wider Abuja Municipal Area Council; the territory is made up of six area councils, namely: Languages of the Federal Capital Territory listed by LGA: Ija-Zuba and Nupe are spoken in the Federal Capital Territory.

Shrink tunnel

A shrink tunnel or heat tunnel is a heated tunnel mounted over or around a conveyor system. Items have shrink film loosely applied. Shrink labels. Combining small items for sale and display. Tamper resistant or Tamper-evident bands or seals. Form large unit loads for transport. Form primary barrier on foods such as cheese and fish. Skin packs. Several types of shrink tunnels are available; the heat source can be based on infrared heater, steam, or gas flame. Forced air is used to improve convection, sometimes focusing the heat on one component of the item. Tunnels are available without a conveyor system; some are built into a production line or are integral with machinery that applies the shrink film. Others are movable by castors. A shrink tunnel, referred to as an oven, may be equipped with an integrated conveyor of two different kinds: the roller conveyor or the belt conveyor. Roller conveyors can be used with polyolefin, PVC, shrink polyethylene films; the space in between the rollers is filled with hot air from the bottom of the tunnel to shrink the film layer around the object, creating a sealed package.

When used with polyolefin and PVC based films the rollers are called "live" or spinning. When used with polyethylene films the rollers are called "dead" or not spinning; the tunnels with Teflon mesh belts and polymer mesh belts are used for smaller packages, or when the package may have an instability and need a stable platform.

World of Warcraft Trading Card Game

The World of Warcraft Trading Card Game was a collectible card game based on Blizzard Entertainment's MMORPG, World of Warcraft. The game was announced by Upper Deck Entertainment on August 18, 2005 and released on October 25, 2006. Players can fight against each other one-on-one, or can join others in order to defeat dungeon/raid bosses based on those in the MMORPG. In March 2010, Upper Deck Entertainment lost the license from Blizzard Entertainment; the license was acquired by Cryptozoic Entertainment in the month, with the company announcing that planned card sets would be released. On August 23, 2013, Blizzard Entertainment announced that the TCG would be discontinued, that they would not be renewing the game's license. In March 2014, Blizzard released Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, an online collectible card game featuring many of the same characters and artwork; each player uses a hero card and a deck consisting of allies and other supporting cards, such as weapons, armor and quests. Many cards include a trait icon.

Some booster packs contain legendary rares, or loot cards which contain a scratch-off code. This code can be redeemed in the online game for a virtual prize; the prizes include special tabards, gimmick items, non-combat pets, mounts. During play, players start with a single hero. Once per turn, players can play any card from their hand as a resource, which enables the payment of additional cards to augment the hero's powers or add additional members to his or her party. Once brought into play by paying the appropriate cost, all cards remain until destroyed or removed from play; as in games such as Magic: The Gathering, the goal is to reduce the remaining health of the opposing hero to zero. Unlike Magic, combat attacks are always directed at individual heroes or allies, rather than declaring an attack with a number of creatures. Furthermore, damage done to characters accumulates between turns, making combat more expensive for both the attacker and defender; the following types of cards are featured in the game: Hero - The character which a given player is playing as.

Each hero has an amount of starting health, faction affiliation, class and professions. The hero's traits determine. Lastly, each hero has a unique power which can be used once per game, after which the hero card is turned face down. Starting with Worldbreaker, Hero cards no longer have professions. Master Hero - Master Hero cards, when played, replace a player's hero with a new card; the original hero is removed from the game and any damage, equipment, tokens or attachments that were on the hero beforehand are brought onto the Master Hero. Master Heroes, unless specified otherwise, can use all equipment and abilities, but abilities on cards that look for specific types cannot be activated. Powers on heroes do not carry on to the Master Hero. Ability - Cards that cause some immediate impact to the game. Abilities can either be of the, able to be played only during one's turn, or can be, able to be played at any time. Ally - Other individuals and companions who assist and fight on behalf of the main hero.

Most allies are affiliated with either the Alliance. Neutral allies can be included in a deck of either faction. Allies can attack opposing heroes or allies, but can be attacked. Armor - Defensive cards which protect heroes from damage. By paying the appropriate resource cost, armor can be exhausted each turn in order to reduce damage dealt to a player's hero. Players are limited in how many different pieces of armor they may equip on any given "body part". Weapon - Offensive cards which can augment a hero's melee or ranged capabilities; as with armor cards, players are limited on. In order to use a weapon card to increase attack power during combat, a player must pay a resource cost associated with the weapon. Weapons can be used when either attacking or defending, but only one weapon can be used per combat. Item - Gear the hero can have in addition to weapons and armor. Rings and trinkets are examples of items. Quest - Special cards which act as resource cards, but with additional abilities. Quests can be completed by fulfilling a condition described on the card.

When this is done, a reward is earned and the quest is turned face down. Location - Location cards are similar to quest cards, but are not turned face down to use their abilities. Only one location can be controlled at a time if locations have different names. Loot - Loot cards are special versions of cards which can be used within the card game, but which contain a scratch-off code; this code can be entered into the website for the online game, which will provide a unique in-game item. Twenty-one expansion sets were released for the WoW TCG. Cards were sold in booster packs, which contain 15 random cards - 10 commons, 3 uncommons, 1 rare or epic, 1 hero card or loot card. Booster packs had one UDE point card redeemable online. Starting with March of the Legion and ending with Twilight of the Dragons, booster packs contained 18 random cards due to more variation of card types: 2 extra commons and 1 extra uncommon; the color of the collector number printed on a card indicates its rarity, using a system similar to that of the online game: white for com
