Kerrisdale is a neighbourhood in the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Kerrisdale is a neighbourhood located in Vancouver's west side, it features a mix of newer houses and older bungalows as well as various low and mid-rise rental and condo apartment buildings in its northern section. The neighbourhood is an ethnic mix of Asian Canadians, it features a shopping district running along West 41st Avenue between Larch and Maple Streets and West Boulevard between 37th and 47th Avenues. Although the city defines Kerrisdale as being south of 41st Ave, the majority of the area's residents consider the area's boundaries to be West 33rd Avenue to the north, Granville Street to the east, West 57th Avenue to the south, Blenheim Street to the west; the northern part of Marpole is generally thought of as part of Kerrisdale, thus some refer to the area as Kerrisdale-Marpole. The southwestern part of Kerrisdale is known as Southlands, due to its location in relation to the city. Southlands is known for its horse stables and rural feel and is located on the floodplain of the North Arm of the Fraser River.
Kerrisdale gained its name in 1905 when British Columbia Electric Railway manager R. H. Sterling asked Mrs. William McKinnon to name the interurban stop at Wilson Road, she chose to call it "Kerry's Dale", after the name of her family home, Kerrydale, in Gairloch, Scotland. Kerrydale means "little seat of the fairies", it was corrupted to Kerrisdale. The area was part of the Municipality of Point Grey, which amalgamated January 1, 1929 with the City of Vancouver and the Municipality of South Vancouver. Many of the streets and avenues surrounding this focal intersection developed around this time, with local landmarks such as Point Grey Secondary School, Ryerson Church, Shannon Mews and the Allen Brown Estate constructed in these formative years; as of the 2016 community census, there were 13,975 people, 5,530 private households, 3,930 families residing in Kerrisdale. Although British in character and demographics, Kerrisdale began to experience an influx of affluent immigrants from Hong Kong in the mid-1980s.
This was due to the fears of Communist China taking over Hong Kong from the British in 1997 per the Sino-British Joint Declaration. Many new immigrants constructed modern houses. Therefore, Kerrisdale is a mix of architecture, with older bungalows in between new houses and renovated houses. Kerrisdale has a mix of professionals, wealthy Chinese, students renting basement suites, or more inexpensive apartment blocks to attend nearby schools; the area is home to elderly residents who rent in the low rise rental blocks that characterize the north central section of the community. Projected average 2008 household income: $131,769 as compared with $75,854 and $79,798 for Vancouver and Metro Vancouver respectively; the stretch of businesses along W. 41st Ave between Balsam and Maple streets comprise the Kerrisdale Business Association, the longest running such association in Vancouver. Member businesses pool funds for festivities and general beautification of the area, including the hiring of a full-time gardener during summer months.
The Arbutus Corridor, a no-longer-used CPR railway line which bisects the neighbourhood, has been purchased by the City of Vancouver and will be a series of community gardens, as well as a greenway for bicycles and pedestrians. The railroad line has been removed and work on the greenway is underway. Kerrisdale Community Centre is home to Kerrisdale Cyclone Taylor Arena, built in 1949 as a hockey arena and was used as wrestling venue for 1954 British Empire and Commonwealth Games. Kerrisdale is home to Kerrisdale Elementary School, Kerrisdale Annex, Maple Grove Elementary School, Dr. R. E. McKechnie Elementary School, Quilchena Elementary School, as well as Magee Secondary School, Prince of Wales Secondary School and Point Grey Secondary School. Crofton House School, a private school for girls, is on the western edge of the neighbourhood, next to Dunbar-Southlands. Majury, N.. "Signs of the times: Kerrisdale, a neighbourhood in transition."

Star Trek is an American space opera media franchise based on the science fiction television series created by Gene Roddenberry. The first television series called Star Trek and now referred to as "The Original Series", debuted in 1966 and aired for three seasons on NBC, it followed the interstellar adventures of Captain James T. Kirk and his crew aboard the starship USS Enterprise, a space exploration vessel built by the United Federation of Planets in the 23rd century; the Star Trek canon includes The Original Series, an animated series, five spin-off television series, the film franchise, further adaptations in several media. In creating Star Trek, Roddenberry was inspired by the Horatio Hornblower novels, the satirical book Gulliver's Travels, Westerns such as the television series Wagon Train; these adventures continued in the 22-episode Star Trek: The Animated Series and six feature films. Five other television series were produced: Star Trek: The Next Generation follows the crew of a new starship Enterprise, set a century after the original series.
The most recent Star Trek TV series, entitled Star Trek: Discovery, aired on the digital platform CBS All Access. The adventures of The Next Generation crew continued in four additional feature films. In 2009, the film franchise underwent a "reboot" set in an alternate timeline, or "Kelvin Timeline," entitled Star Trek; this film featured a new cast portraying younger versions of the crew from the original show. Its sequel, Star Trek Beyond, was released to coincide with the franchise's 50th anniversary. Star Trek has been a cult phenomenon for decades. Fans of the franchise are called Trekkers; the franchise spans a wide range of spin-offs including games, novels and comics. Star Trek had a themed attraction in Las Vegas that opened in 1998 and closed in September 2008. At least two museum exhibits of props travel the world; the series has Klingon. Several parodies have been made of Star Trek. In addition, viewers have produced several fan productions; as of July 2016, the franchise had generated $10 billion in revenue, making Star Trek one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time.
Star Trek is noted for its cultural influence beyond works of science fiction. The franchise is noted for its progressive civil rights stances; the Original Series included. Star Trek references may be found throughout popular culture from movies such as the submarine thriller Crimson Tide to the animated series South Park; as early as 1964, Gene Roddenberry drafted a proposal for the science-fiction series that would become Star Trek. Although he publicly marketed it as a Western in outer space—a so-called "Wagon Train to the Stars"—he told friends that he was modeling it on Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels, intending each episode to act on two levels: as a suspenseful adventure story and as a morality tale. Most Star Trek stories depict the adventures of humans and aliens who serve in Starfleet, the space-borne humanitarian and peacekeeping armada of the United Federation of Planets; the protagonists have altruistic values, must apply these ideals to difficult dilemmas. Many of the conflicts and political dimensions of Star Trek represent allegories of contemporary cultural realities.
Star Trek: The Original Series addressed issues of the 1960s, just as spin-offs have reflected issues of their respective decades. Issues depicted in the various series include war and peace, the value of personal loyalty, imperialism, class warfare, racism, human rights, sexism and the role of technology. Roddenberry stated: " a new world with new rules, I could make statements about sex, Vietnam and intercontinental missiles. Indeed, we did make them on Star Trek: we were sending messages and they all got by the network." "If you talked about purple people on a far off planet, they never caught on. They were more concerned about cleavage, they would send a censor down to the set to measure a woman's cleavage to make sure too much of her breast wasn't showing"Roddenberry intended the show to have a progressive political agenda reflective of the emerging counter-culture of the youth movement, though he was not forthcoming to the networks about this. He wanted Star Trek to show what humanity might develop into, if it would learn from the lessons of the past, most by ending violence.
An extreme example is the alien species, the Vulcans, who had a violent past but learned to control their emotions. Roddenberry gave Star Trek an anti-war message and depicted the United Federation of Planets as an ideal, optimistic version of the United Nations, his efforts were opposed by the network because of concerns over marketability, e.g. they opposed Roddenberry's insistence that Enterprise have a racially diverse crew. The central trio of Kirk, McCoy from Star Trek: The Original Series was modeled on classical mythological storytelling. There is a mythological component with science fiction. It's people looking for answers – and science fiction offers to explain the inexplicable, the same as religion tends to do... If we accept the premise that it has a mythological element all the stuff about going out into space and meeting new life – trying to explain it and put a human element to it – it's a hopeful visio
The Cleaner (TV series)
The Cleaner is an A&E television series starring Benjamin Bratt. It debuted on Tuesday, July 15, 2008, at 10:00 pm EST and the last episode aired on September 15, 2009, when the show was cancelled, it was produced by CBS Television Studios CBS Paramount Network Television. William Banks is a recovering drug addict who lives in California; when his daughter Lula was born, Banks "made a deal with God", pledging that if he is given a second chance, he will end his drug abuse and help others end their addictions to drugs and alcohol. Banks and his small team of recovering addicts begin to work to help others in recovering from their addictions, they will resort to illegal tactics in order to end their clients' addictions. His success at cleaning people's addictions has gained him the respect of the LAPD and other officials, who always turn a blind eye to the vigilante's methods. In fact, the LAPD and other law officials will refer clients to Banks. Banks appears to believe that his work is a calling and will therefore work pro bono if a client is too poor to afford his services.
Banks has a busy life. His shop is connected to a garage where his business repairs surfboards. Besides that he works at a drug rehabilitation center called Transitions; each episode begins with Banks having a one-way conversation with God asking for guidance and clarity on his mission, the meaning of life and human nature, among other things. Other times Banks will air his grievances to God. William's one-way communications with God are somewhat of a theme during the series, implying that his faith plays an important role in his sobriety. However, whether all the scenes where Banks is shown praying out loud to God are real or whether they are illustrations of what is going on in his mind, are left ambiguous to the viewers; the show's intro states that Banks helps people overcome addictions to sex and gambling, neither one has been the focus of an episode. The Cleaner, whose protagonist, according to A&E, helps others defeat their habits "by any means necessary", is the first original drama for this cable network in over six years.

Battlestar Galactica (2004 TV series)
Battlestar Galactica is an American military science fiction television series, part of the Battlestar Galactica franchise. The show was developed by Ronald D. Moore and executive produced by Moore and David Eick as a re-imagining of the 1978 Battlestar Galactica television series created by Glen A. Larson; the pilot for the series first aired as a three-hour miniseries in December 2003 on the Sci-Fi Channel, followed by four regular seasons, ending its run on March 20, 2009. The cast includes Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Katee Sackhoff, Jamie Bamber, James Callis, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park The series garnered a wide range of critical acclaim both at the time of its run and in the years since, including a Peabody Award, the Television Critics Association's Program of the Year Award, a placement inside Time's 100 Best TV Shows of All-Time, Emmy nominations for its writing, costume design, visual effects, sound mixing, sound editing, with Emmy wins for both visual effects and sound editing.
In 2019, The New York Times placed the show on its list of "The 20 Best TV Dramas Since The Sopranos", a 20-year period many critics call "the golden age of television."Battlestar Galactica is set in a distant star system, where a civilization of humans lives on a group of planets known as the Twelve Colonies. In the past, the Colonies had been at war with an android race of their own creation, known as the Cylons. With the unwitting help of a human scientist named Gaius Baltar, the Cylons launch a sudden sneak attack on the Colonies, laying waste to the planets and devastating their populations. Out of a population numbering in the billions, only 50,000 humans survive, most of whom were aboard civilian ships that avoided destruction. Of all the Colonial Fleet, the eponymous Battlestar Galactica appears to be the only military capital ship that survived the attack. Under the leadership of Colonial Fleet officer Commander William "Bill" Adama and now-President Laura Roslin, the Galactica and its crew take up the task of leading the small fugitive fleet of survivors into space in search of a fabled thirteenth colony known as Earth.
The series spawned the prequel spin-off TV series Caprica, which aired for one season in 2010. Another spin-off, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, was released in November 2012 as a web series of ten 10-minute episodes, aired on February 10, 2013, on Syfy as a televised movie. Battlestar Galactica continued from the 2003 miniseries to chronicle the journey of the last surviving humans from the Twelve Colonies of Kobol, after their nuclear annihilation by the Cylons; the survivors are led by President Laura Roslin and Commander William Adama in a ragtag fleet of ships with the Battlestar Galactica, an old, but powerful warship, as its command ship. Pursued by Cylons intent on wiping out the remnants of the human race, the survivors travel across the galaxy looking for the fabled and long-lost "thirteenth" colony: Earth. Unlike most space opera series, Battlestar Galactica has no humanoid aliens, the primary armaments used by both military forces utilize bullets, rail guns, missiles instead of lasers, the series intentionally avoids technobabble.
Instead, most of the stories deal with the apocalyptic fallout of the destruction of the Twelve Colonies upon the survivors, the moral choices they must make as they deal with the decline of the human race and their war with the Cylons. Stories portray the concept of perpetuated cycles of hate and violence driving the human-Cylon conflict, religion, with the implication of a "God" whose angelic agents appear to certain main characters. Over the course of the show's four seasons, the war between the Colonials and the Cylons takes many twists and turns. Despite the animosity on both sides, the humans and a faction of the Cylons form an uneasy alliance, in the wake of the Cylon Civil War; the Cylon leader, a humanoid Cylon "Number One" named John Cavil, precipitated the schism in the Cylon ranks. Cavil deceives the other models by obsessively hiding the identities and origins of the remaining five humanoid Cylon models, the "Final Five", known only to him, are a more ancient type of Cylon, created by a previous iteration of human civilization.
Other plotlines involve the mysterious destiny of Kara "Starbuck" Thrace, the subject of a prophecy claiming that she is the "Harbinger of Death" who will "lead them all to its end", as well as the redemption of Gaius Baltar through the Cylons' monotheistic religion, after he becomes a pariah within the fleet. In the final episodes, an inexplicably resurrected Kara Thrace leads the surviving humans and their Cylon allies to a new planet, which Adama names "Earth"; the first group of survivors settle in ancient Africa. The "real" Earth that the Colonials had searched for during their years in space was revealed in an earlier episode to have been inhabited thousands of years before by a previous form of humanoid Cylons; these humanoid Cylons had created their own Centurion robotic slaves, who waged a nuclear attack against their masters, devastating the planet and making it uninhabitable. The new Earth is found to be inhabited by early humans, who are genetically compatible with the humans from the Galactica and the rest of the fleet, but who possess only the most rudimentary civilization.
The surviving humans and humanoid Cylons settle on the new planet Earth.
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation referred to as CSI and CSI: Las Vegas, is an American procedural forensics crime drama television series which ran on CBS from October 6, 2000 to September 27, 2015, spanning 15 seasons. The series starred William Petersen, Marg Helgenberger, George Eads, Liev Schreiber, Ted Danson, Laurence Fishburne, Elisabeth Shue, Jorja Fox and was the first in the CSI franchise; the series concluded with a feature-length finale titled "Immortality". Mixing deduction and character-driven drama, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation follows a team of crime-scene investigators, employed by the Las Vegas Police Department, as they use physical evidence to solve murders; the team is led by Gil Grissom, a awkward forensic entomologist and career criminalist, promoted to CSI supervisor following the death of a trainee investigator. Grissom's second-in-command, Catherine Willows, is a single mother with a cop's instinct. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Catherine was a stripper before being recruited into law enforcement and training as a blood-spatter specialist.
Following Grissom's departure during the ninth season of the series, Catherine is promoted to supervisor. After overseeing the training of new investigator Raymond Langston, Willows is replaced by D. B. Russell, recruited to the FBI shortly thereafter. Russell is a family man, a keen forensic botanist, a veteran of the Seattle Crime Lab. In the series' 12th season, Russell is reunited with his former partner Julie Finlay, like Catherine, is a blood-spatter expert with an extensive knowledge of criminal psychology. With the rest of the team, they work to tackle Las Vegas's growing crime rate and are on the job 24/7, scouring the scene, collecting the evidence, finding the missing pieces that will solve the mystery. During the 1990s, Anthony Zuiker caught producer Jerry Bruckheimer's attention after writing his first movie script. Zuiker was convinced; the studio's head at the time liked the spec script and presented it to ABC, NBC, Fox executives, who decided to pass. The head of drama development at CBS saw potential in the script, the network had a pay-or-play contract with actor William Petersen, who said he wanted to do the CSI pilot.
The network's executives liked the pilot so much, they decided to include it in their 2000 schedule airing on Fridays after The Fugitive. After CBS picked up the show, the Disney-owned Touchstone decided to pull out of the project, since they didn't want to spend so much money producing a show for another network. Instead of the intended effect of making CBS cancel the show, Bruckheimer was able to convince Alliance Atlantis to step in as a producer, saving the show and adding CBS as another producer. CSI was thought to benefit from The Fugitive, expected to be a hit, but by the end of 2000, CSI had a much larger audience. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation was produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television and CBS Productions, which became CBS Paramount Television in the fall of 2006 and CBS Television Studios three years later. A co-production with the now-defunct Alliance Atlantis Communications, that company's interest was bought by the investment firm GS Capital Partners, an affiliate of Goldman Sachs.
CBS acquired AAC's international distribution rights to the program, though the non-US DVD distribution rights did not change. The series is in syndication, reruns are broadcast in the U. S. on Oxygen and the USA Network on cable, with Ion Television holding the broadcast syndication rights. The show has aired in reruns on the USA Network since January 14, 2011; the CSI catalog has been exclusive to the whole NBC Universal portfolio since September 2014, after several years with Viacom Media Networks' Spike and TV Land. CSI was shot at Rye Canyon, a corporate campus owned by Lockheed Martin situated in the Valencia area of Santa Clarita, but after episode 11, filming shifted to the Santa Clarita Studios chosen for its similarity to the outskirts of Las Vegas; the cast still shot on location in Las Vegas, although Las Vegas was used for second unit photography such as exterior shots of streets. Other California locations include Verdugo Hills High School, UCLA's Royce Hall, Pasadena City Hall, California State University, Los Angeles.
While shooting took place at Universal Studios in Universal City, Santa Clarita's surroundings had proven so versatile, CSI still shot some outdoor scenes there. CSI's theme song was, since the last episode of season one, "Who Are You", written by Pete Townshend with vocals by lead singer Roger Daltrey of The Who. Daltrey made a special appearance in the season-seven episode "Living Legend", which contained many musical references such as the words "Who's next" on a dry-erase board in the episode's opening sequence. In certain countries, to avoid music licensing fees, a unique theme was used, instead. Throughout the series, music played an important role. Mogwai was often
