Granny Goodness

Granny Goodness is a fictional character, a deity and supervillainess published by DC Comics. Granny Goodness made her live-action debut in the final two seasons of Smallville, she was portrayed by Nancy Amelia Bell and Christine Willes. Granny Goodness will make her first film appearance in the upcoming DC Extended Universe film New Gods. Modeled after Phyllis Diller, Granny Goodness first appeared in Mister Miracle vol. 1 #2 and was created by Jack Kirby. Granny Goodness did not begin as one of the higher-level residents of Apokolips, but was instead one of the "Lowlies"–the brutally oppressed peasant class, she was removed from her parents and trained to be one of Darkseid's "Hounds". One part of their training was to train their dog. Through combat and training, the two bonded; as the final step of her initiation into life as a Hound, she was told to kill her beloved pet. Instead, she killed her trainer for ordering this; when Darkseid asked why, she answered that "to have done otherwise would have robbed my lord of a most valuable asset", telling him that Mercy would obey her first, but him foremost.

Testing this, Darkseid ordered Mercy to kill Goodness. Mercy attacked Goodness, forcing Goodness to kill her pet. Darkseid was impressed that she had graduated with honors. "You have trained Mercy so well in my name that you'll do as well training others whose blind obedience I will one day require". Darkseid had Goodness run the training facility for his elite soldiers, where she used brainwashing and torture, in a brutal parody of child care, to turn the innocent into fanatical warriors willing to kill or die for Darkseid's glory. Since the war between Apokolips and New Genesis first moved to Earth, Granny Goodness has run Earthly orphanages, looking for potential warriors for Darkseid. Granny is the chief of the Female Furies, she raised Scott Free, the son of Highfather of New Genesis, traded for Darkseid's son as part of a peace treaty. Scott Free became the first child to escape one of her Orphanages. In the final issue of the Amazons Attack miniseries it was revealed that Granny Goodness has been posing as Athena, having manipulated the Amazons into the war.

She tells Hippolyta. It appears that Goodness is posing as Athena in the Countdown series, using Amazon centers to recruit new female fighters, she is holding the Gods of Olympus prisoner. After the gods are freed by Mary Marvel, Holly Robinson and Harley Quinn from an Apokolitian chamber, Granny is attacked and killed by Infinity-Man. However, she is reincarnated on Earth, along with the other Evil Gods, as a member of Boss Dark Side's gang. Although this form is destroyed by Black Alice in an issue of Birds of Prey, in the "Final Crisis" storyline, she takes the body of the Alpha Lantern known as Kraken and uses it to attack John Stewart and frame Hal Jordan for the assault. While she is discovered by Batman, she overpowers him and brings him back to the Evil Factory beneath Blüdhaven where he is sealed inside a torture device. Reverend Good announces that Granny Goodness is poised to conquer Oa from within in the name of Darkseid, which would reestablish her as his favorite among the Elite.

Granny's attempted assault on the power structure of Oa results in injury to a Guardian, the clearing of Hal Jordan's name, the hiding of the Power Battery and a Green Lantern assault force sent to Earth. After she is stopped by Hal Jordan, she is taken away to be inspected, her fate after "Final Crisis" is left unknown. Granny Goodness has superhuman strength and endurance, she is robust and, considering her age, can still lift several tons with facility and she is resistant to most forms of physical attacks. She is quite good at hand-to-hand combat. In her youth, she was one of the best and most loyal warriors in the service of Darkseid; as a member of Darkseid's elite, Granny Goodness has access to advanced weaponry. In addition, she is a great leader and military strategist that commands soldiers being trained at her orphanages, including flight troops, who ride on flying aero-discs. Among her most relevant pupils are Mister Miracle, Big Barda, Virman Vundabar and the Female Furies, she is seen in the pages of Justice League, in the Rock of Ages storyline, in an alternate future where Darkseid has conquered the Earth.

She has merged with the Mother Box systems. As her main offensive weapon, she teleports and blasts firepits energy at her adversaries, she is destroyed by the future Wonder Woman who sacrifices her own life in the battle. In Grant Morrison's Seven Soldiers, after Darkseid's victory over New Genesis destroyed both planets, Granny reinvented herself, she is now a brothel madame, with the Furies as her prostitutes, is an obese black woman. In this guise she hoped to seduce the new Mister Miracle to Darkseid. An identical version of Granny appears in Birds of Prey #118, working at the "Dark Side Club". In Amalgam Comics, Goodness was fused with Marvel Comics' Agatha Harkness to become Granny Harkness, follower of Thanoseid. Granny Goodness appears in a few episodes of the Superman: The Animated Series, voiced by Ed Asner. Asner reprises his role of Granny Goodness in the Justice League Unlimited episode "The Ties That Bind". Granny Goodness makes a cameo appearance in the Legion of Super Heroes episode "Unnatural Alliances".

She was seen in Imperiex

Hope Historic District (Hope, Alaska)

The Hope Historic District encompasses the surviving elements of the former mining boom town of Hope, Alaska. Hope is located in the northeastern corner of the Kenai Peninsula, alongside the spot where Resurrection Creek empties into the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet. Principal access to Hope is via a side road of the Seward Highway, its historic center is formed by a grid of streets with Main Street at the west and Fifth Street at the east, A Street at the south, C Street at the north. The C Street area and parts of B Street are now submerged at high tide, it includes 29 historic buildings. The community was established in 1898 to support gold mining operations in the mountainous interior of the Kenai Peninsula, activity that ended in the 1940s; because the town was isolated, as the Seward Highway wasn't completed until 1951, a significant concentration of its early buildings survive. The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. National Register of Historic Places listings in Kenai Peninsula Borough, Alaska

Canon EOS 350D

The Canon EOS 350D is an 8.0-megapixel entry-level digital single-lens reflex camera manufactured by Canon. The model was announced in February 2005. Part of the EOS range, it is the successor to the EOS 300D and the predecessor to the EOS 400D, released in August 2006. Since early 2008, the 350D has been remaindered; the 350D is an upgraded version of the Canon EOS 300D, the first sub-US$1000 digital SLR, introduced in 2003. There are some differences between the 350D and the 300D. Many of the features'locked out' by Canon in the 300D were unlocked in this camera, so it has been subject to less unofficial'hacking' to release the locked features. In addition to these unlocked features, a number of other improvements have been made; some of the most significant upgrades include: 8.0 megapixels DIGIC II image processor Faster power on times Compact Flash type II capability 14 or 4 frames continuous shooting buffer Smaller and lighter body Increased function customization E-TTL II flash algorithm Mirror lock-up Selectable AF and metering modes USB 2.0 interface Lithium ion battery.

The Canon EOS 350D comes with Digital Photo Professional to be able to create JPEG or TIFF files from raw files. This was only available on Canon's professional cameras. Canon had compatibility problems with the Lexar Professional 80x-speed Compact Flash cards which resulted in either total image loss, or the camera freezing up. In the cases of the camera freezing, the images may still be retrieved using an external CF card reader; the camera will interpret the presence of a hot shoe protector as the presence of an auxiliary flash attachment thereby disabling the built-in pop-up flash. Removing the hot shoe protector will re-enable the built-in flash. A micro-switch in the hot-shoe senses the presence of the flash; when using third party lenses, most notably older Sigma lenses, there may be a compatibility issue. Reports exist of people receiving "Err99" errors; the problem is more pronounced. Using the problematic lens with its largest aperture is sometimes possible. Another cause of Err99 messages involve EF-S 18 -- 55 lenses.

Some auction listings state that the lens was never used – those claiming that the lens was part of an EOS 400D kit. The latest firmware released by Canon for the EOS 350D is version 1.0.3. It fixes problems relating to remote release cables, as well as a problem while reviewing saved images. Canon EF lens mount Canon EF-S lens mount Canon EOS system infopage
