British Standards

British Standards are the standards produced by the BSI Group, incorporated under a royal charter. The BSI Group produces British Standards under the authority of the charter, which lays down as one of the BSI's objectives to: Set up standards of quality for goods and services, prepare and promote the general adoption of British Standards and schedules in connection therewith and from time to time to revise and amend such standards and schedules as experience and circumstances require Formally, as per the 2002 memorandum of understanding between the BSI and the United Kingdom Government, British Standards are defined as: "British Standards" means formal consensus standards as set out in BS 0-1 paragraph 3.2 and based upon the principles of standardisation recognised inter alia in European standardisation policy. Products and services which BSI certifies as having met the requirements of specific standards within designated schemes are awarded the Kitemark; the BSI Group as a whole does not produce British Standards, as standards work within the BSI is decentralized.

The governing board of BSI establishes a Standards Board. The Standards Board does little apart from setting up sector boards; each sector board, in turn, constitutes several technical committees. It is the technical committees that, approve a British Standard, presented to the secretary of the supervisory sector board for endorsement of the fact that the technical committee has indeed completed a task for which it was constituted; the standards produced are titled British Standard XXXX:YYYY where XXXX is the number of the standard, P is the number of the part of the standard and YYYY is the year in which the standard came into effect. BSI Group has over 27,000 active standards. Products are specified as meeting a particular British Standard, in general, this can be done without any certification or independent testing; the standard provides a shorthand way of claiming that certain specifications are met, while encouraging manufacturers to adhere to a common method for such a specification. The Kitemark can be used to indicate certification by BSI, but only where a Kitemark scheme has been set up around a particular standard.

It is applicable to safety and quality management standards. There is a common misunderstanding that Kitemarks are necessary to prove compliance with any BS standard, but in general, it is neither desirable nor possible that every standard be'policed' in this way. Following the move on harmonisation of the standard in Europe, some British Standards are superseded or replaced by the relevant European Standards. Standards are continuously reviewed and developed and are periodically allocated one or more of the following status keywords. Confirmed - the standard has been reviewed and confirmed as being current. Current - the document is the current, most published one available. Draft for public comment/DPC - a national stage in the development of a standard, where wider consultation is sought within the UK. Obsolescent - indicating by amendment that the standard is not recommended for use for new equipment, but needs to be retained to provide for the servicing of equipment, expected to have a long working life, or due to legislative issues.

Replaced - the standard has been replaced by one or more other standards. Proposed for confirmation - the standard is being reviewed and it has been proposed that it is confirmed as the current standard. Proposed for obsolescence - the standard is being reviewed and it has been proposed that it is made obsolescent. Proposed for withdrawal - the standard is being reviewed and it has been proposed that it is withdrawn. Revised - the standard has been revised. Superseded - the standard has been replaced by one or more other standards. Under review - the standard is under review. Withdrawn - the document is no longer current and has been withdrawn. Work in hand - there is work being undertaken on the standard and there may be a related draft for public comment available. BSI Group began in 1901 as the Engineering Standards Committee, led by James Mansergh, to standardise the number and type of steel sections, in order to make British manufacturers more efficient and competitive. Over time the standards developed to cover many aspects of tangible engineering, engineering methodologies including quality systems and security.

BS 0 A standard for standards specifies Development and Drafting of British Standards themselves.

Bad Blood (The X-Files)

"Bad Blood" is the twelfth episode of the fifth season of the American science fiction television series The X-Files. Written by Vince Gilligan, directed by Cliff Bole, featuring guest appearances from Luke Wilson and Patrick Renna, it aired in the United States on February 22, 1998, on the Fox network; the episode is a "Monster-of-the-Week" story, unconnected to the series' wider mythology. The episode received a Nielsen rating of 12.0. In addition, "Bad Blood" received positive reviews, with many critics praising the episode's humor; the show centers on FBI special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully who work on cases linked to the paranormal, called X-Files. Mulder is a believer in the paranormal, while the skeptical Scully has been assigned to debunk his work. In this episode and Scully must report to their supervisor, Assistant Director Walter Skinner after Mulder kills a young man he believes to be a vampire. After each recollecting their takes on the event, they realize that they have different memories of the investigation.

"Bad Blood" was inspired by an episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show in which the main characters tell different versions of a fight they had. According to critical analysis of the episode, "Bad Blood" explores the dynamics of the relationship between Mulder and Scully. In addition, some scholars argue that by Scully telling the tale from a perspective opposed to Mulder's, the episode subverts the male gaze; the episode's makeup and special effect coordinators used various techniques to create many of the effects seen in the episode, such as the vampire teeth, the glowing eyes, the bite marks. One night, Fox Mulder kills a young man who Mulder believes is a vampire, but who has pointed dentures instead of actual fangs. Afterwards, he and his FBI partner, Special Agent Dana Scully must report to Assistant Director Walter Skinner. Before they do so, they attempt to get their stories straight. Scully tells her version of the story via a flashback to the previous day, she arrives at work and Mulder tells her about a murder in Texas, which he believes to be the work of vampires.

In her version, Mulder is exuberant and irritating, while she is calm and mindful of her thoughts. The agents travel to the small town of Chaney, where they meet Sheriff Hartwell, whom Scully finds charming. Mulder and Hartwell leave to investigate further, she discovers that the victim, whose last meal had been pizza, was incapacitated with chloral hydrate. She returns to the motel room and orders a pizza, but Mulder soon appears and sends her back to autopsy another body, she leaves him. When she finds that the second victim had ingested chloral hydrate in a pizza, she realizes Mulder is in danger and returns to the motel room, she finds him about to be attacked by Ronnie Strickland. She shoots at Ronnie; when she catches up to him, Mulder has hammered a stake into Ronnie's heart. Mulder tells Scully his version. In his recollection, he is sensitive and polite to Scully, while she is dismissive and irritable, enamored with Sheriff Hartwell. While Scully is performing the autopsy and Hartwell get a call to go to the local RV park, where there is "a situation".

They find another dead body a victim of the same attacker. Mulder returns to the motel room. Ronnie enters, with glowing green eyes, prepares to attack Mulder, but Mulder manages to postpone his demise by scattering sunflower seeds all over the floor, which Ronnie compulsively starts to pick up. Scully enters and shoots Ronnie, but the bullets have no effect, Ronnie runs out with Scully in pursuit. Mulder recovers from chases after Ronnie. Back in the office, Scully says that no one will believe his story given their diverging statements and the fact that Ronnie was a human. Meanwhile, a Texas coroner prepares to perform an autopsy on Ronnie's body; when he removes the stake, Ronnie escapes. Skinner sends Scully back to Texas to investigate. Scully stakes out the cemetery with Sheriff Hartwell; as they wait, Sheriff Hartwell gives Scully a hot drink, apologizes to her on behalf of Ronnie, says that he makes them all look bad, making it clear that he too is a vampire. Scully belatedly realizes she has been drugged, before she loses consciousness, she sees Sheriff Hartwell's eyes turning green.

At the RV park, Mulder finds Ronnie. As he tries to arrest him, Mulder is surrounded and overwhelmed by a group of people with glowing green eyes, he wakes up the next morning in the RV park, in his car. They are both unharmed and the vampires have disappeared. Back in Washington, they give their unified report to Skinner, dumbfounded by what he has heard. "Bad Blood" was written by Vince Gilligan his fifth writing credit for the season. Aware that an episode script was due after the Christmas break of 1997, he had been working on a script that would have taken the form of an Unsolved Mysteries episode, with unknown actors playing Mulder and Scully and Robert Stack appearing in his role as narrator. Under pressure to complete the script, Gilligan scrapped the idea because he "just couldn't figure out how to do it". (The series would explore the idea of an X-Files cr

Pero Ferrús

Pero Ferrús was a Castilian poet. He lived in Alcalá de Henares. Ferrús was a Marrano; the reasons for conversion by Marranos were various, but it did offer opportunities for advancement within the Christian world. Like several Marrano writers, Ferrús simulated the Christian faith while mocking his former co-religionists in his poetry. In Cantiga 302, he describes himself as seeking rest in a synagogue; this sleep is disturbed by "Jews with long beards and slovenly garments come thither for early morning prayer." Ferrús himself wrote a poem. In Cantiga 303, they consider his poetry as proceeding from a lengua juglara. Ferrús wrote his poetry in the Provençal style, during a time in which this style was exceedingly popular at the Castilian court, his poetry celebrates the reign and accomplishments of Henry II of Castile. Ferrús makes an early reference to chivalric romances when he compares, for example, his love for his lady with the riches owned by Rrey Lysuarte, he is thus known to have read the popular romance Amadis of Gaul.

His contemporary Pero López de Ayala is known to have read this romance. His poetic compositions appear in the Cancionero de Baena. 301. Untitled. 302. Cantiga de Pero Ferruz para los rabíes.. 303. Respuesta de los rabíes a Perro Ferruz.. 304. Dezir de Pero Ferruz al Rey don Enrique. "Dezir" can be translated as a piece of friendly advice. 305. Dezir de Pero Ferruz a Pero López de Ayala.
