Kaos is a 1984 Italian drama film directed by Paolo and Vittorio Taviani based on short stories by Luigi Pirandello. The film's title is after Pirandello's explanation of the local name Càvusu of the woods near his birthplace in the neighborhood of Girgenti, on the southern coast of Sicily, as deriving from the ancient Greek word kaos; the film depicts four short stories from Pirandello's 15-volume series Novelle per un anno, which play around his birthplace in the 19th century. A raven, which in the introduction is shown to get a bell around his neck from locals, leads one from one story to the next. L'altro figlio is about a mother, she hasn't heard from them since, but she still favors them over a third son who has stayed behind and tries to help and please his mother. The reason for her shunning him are explained in flashbacks to events in 1860, after the arrival of Garibaldi in Sicily. Mal di luna Three weeks after their honeymoon, Sidora discovers that, during the full moon, her husband Batà spends the night howling outside like a werewolf and scratching to get back in.
Batà tries to save his marriage by allowing her to have the handsome Saro spend the full-moon nights at their place to protect Sidora. La giara In this comedic section, a feudal landlord orders a large jar for his olive oil, but the new jar breaks immediately under mysterious circumstances; the great "jar-fixer" Zi' Dima, famous for his secret-recipe glue, is called to repair the jar, but Zi' Dima manages to fix the jar with himself in it and Don Lollò refuses to break the jar again to let him out. Requiem Motivated by the imminent death of their founding father, farmers in a remote hamlet on grounds owned by a baron try to obtain the rights to bury their dead locally rather than in the town, over a day's hike away; the baron refuses and carabinieri escort the peasants back to their hamlet to break down the beginnings of a graveyard the peasants are building. An epilogue, Colloquio con la madre, of similar length as the stories, describes Pirandello's fictional visit home many years after his mother has died.
He asks his mother to retell the story of a trip to Malta she took as a child to visit her exiled father. The ending sequence showed children sliding down the vast slopes of white pumice that flowed into the sea on the island of Lipari.

The film was well received by critics, but its length may have prevented wide exposure. In his 2007 book The Best Movies of Our Years, M. Owen Lee considered it the best movie to come out locally in 1986. Janet Maslin, The New York Times, 13 October 1985. David Denby Poets and Peasants, New York 24 February 1986, pp. 62–63.

Kevin Brereton, better known by his stage name k-os, is a Canadian alternative rapper, singer and record producer. His given name may be cited as Kheaven, a spelling he adopted; the alias "k-os", spelled with a lower case "k", was intended to be less aggressive than the pseudonyms of other rappers whose names were all upper case, such as KRS-One. It is an acronym for "Knowledge of Self", although in a interview he said that it stood for "Kevin's Original Sound". K-os' music incorporates a wide variety of music genres, including rap, funk and reggae; the lyrics focus on promoting a "positive message" while at times expressing criticism of mainstream hip hop culture's obsession with money and glorification of violence. A musician as well as a producer, k-os has written and produced nearly every part of all four of his albums. K-os performs with a live band, something, uncommon in the hip hop genre, he sometimes plays guitar and keyboard both during live performances and in the studio.k-os received his first musical exposure with the single "Musical Essence", released in 1993.
After the release of his second single "Rise Like the Sun" in 1996, he withdrew from the industry because he was dissatisfied with his musical style. He reappeared in 1999 and released his debut album Exit in 2002; the album received positive reviews but sold few copies. He released his second album Joyful Rebellion in 2004.

Growing up, k-os was a fan of artists and groups as diverse as New Order, Depeche Mode, Rx Bandits, Michael Jackson, Boogie Down Productions, Slick Rick, A Tribe Called Quest, The Beatles, he said that he was "insecure" in high school and he pursued his musical ambitions because after performing at an assembly in his high school gym he realized performing attracted people towards him and it made him feel "powerful and... secure". In 1992, he attended Carleton University in Ottawa for one semester to please his father, he enrolled into York University. Being friends with Nigel Williams, a member of the band Pocket Dwellers, Nigel encouraged k-os to continue to develop his musical abilities when he was confronted with "difficult forays". While attending York University, k-os gained his first exposure in the music industry in 1993 when he released the single "Musical Essence" with a music video financed by a VideoFACT grant.

After the transfer k-os was added to the roster of the Toronto-based artist management firm Chris Smith Management. On March 26, 2002, k-os released his debut album Exit in Canada to critical acclaim.

Mihrdat I of Iberia
Mithridates I was the 1st-century king of Iberia whose reign is evidenced by epigraphic material. Cyril Toumanoff suggests 58–106 as the years of his reign. Two inscriptions unearthed at Georgia. One bilingual in Aramaic and Greek; the Greek inscription identifies Mithridates I as the son of the "great king" Pharasmanes the Pharasmanes I of Iberia of Tacitus’s Annals. The stone inscription in Greek speaks of Mithridates I as "the friend of the Caesars" and the king "of the Roman-loving Iberians", it reports that the Roman emperor Vespasian fortified Armazi for the Iberian king in 75. His mother was an unnamed Armenian Princess of the Artaxiad Dynasty being the daughter of the Artaxiad Armenian Monarchs Tigranes IV and his sister-wife Erato. Mithridates I is ignored by the medieval Georgian chronicles which instead, report a joint rule of Kartam and Bartom – in the time when Vespasian’s destruction of Jerusalem in 70 spurred a wave of the refugee Jews to Iberia – and of their sons – Parsman and Kaos – and grandsons – Azork and Armazel.
Several modern scholars, such as Cyril Toumanoff, consider the Iberian diarchy a pure legend and a "deformed memory of the historical reign of Mithridates I". Of these royal pairs, Professor Giorgi Melikishvili identifies "Azork" as Mithridates I’s possible local name and "Armazel" as a territorial epithet, meaning in Georgian "of Armazi". There is another Greek inscription found in Rome; this Epigram of Amazaspos names Amazaspus as brother of King Mithridates I of Iberia. The inscription records Amazapus’s death at Nisibis, while accompanying the emperor Trajan on his Parthian campaign of 114–117; some modern scholars identify Mithridates I with the King Flavius Dades, known from a single Greek inscription around the edge of the base of a large silver dish found at Armazi. The dish was part of the inventory of a rich Roman-era burial conventionally known as "the Bersoumas burial" after the high dignitary Bersoumas to whom, the inscriptions says, this piece was presented by the King Flavius Dades.
There is no mention of him in the medieval Georgian written tradition and appears to be the only Roman name attested in the Iberian ruling house, evidently indicating that he held Roman citizenship. The identification of this monarch and his place in the Iberian royal dynasty remains problematic, however. Mithridates I was succeeded by his son, Amazaspus I
Get Smart is an American comedy television series that satirizes the secret agent genre, popular in the United States in the late 1960s. The program was created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, had its television premiere on NBC on September 18, 1965; the show stars Don Adams as agent Maxwell "Max" Smart, a.k.a. Agent 86, Barbara Feldon as Agent 99, Edward Platt as Thaddeus, the Chief. Henry said that they created the show at the request of Daniel Melnick to capitalize on "the two biggest things in the entertainment world today": James Bond and Inspector Clouseau. Brooks said: "It's an insane combination of James Bond and Mel Brooks comedy."The show generated a number of popular catchphrases during its run, including "Would you believe...", "Good thinking, 99", "Missed it by that much!", "Sorry about that, Chief", "The old trick", "And loving it", "I asked you not to tell me that". The show was followed by the films The Nude Bomb and Get Smart, Again!, as well as a 1995 revival series, a 2008 film remake.
In 2010, TV Guide ranked Get Smart's opening title sequence at No. 2 on its list of TV's Top 10 Credits Sequences as selected by readers. After switching networks in 1969, to CBS, the show ended its five-season run on May 15, 1970, with a production roster at both networks of 138 episodes; the Museum of Broadcast Communications finds the show notable for "broadening the parameters for the presentation of comedy on television." The series centers on bumbling secret agent Maxwell "Max" Smart known as Agent 86, his more sensible female partner, Agent 99. Agents 86 and 99 work for CONTROL, a secret U. S. government counter-intelligence agency based in Washington, D. C; the pair investigates and thwarts various threats to the world, though Smart's incompetent nature and demands to do things by-the-book invariably cause complications. However, Smart never fails to save the day. Looking on is the long-suffering head of CONTROL, addressed as "Chief"; the nemesis of CONTROL is KAOS, described as "an international organization of evil".
In the series, KAOS was formed in Bucharest, Romania, in 1904. Neither CONTROL nor KAOS is an acronym. Many guest actors appeared including William Schallert. Conrad Siegfried, played by Bernie Kopell, is Smart's KAOS archenemy. King Moody portrayed Siegfried's assistant; the enemies, world-takeover plots and gadgets seen in Get Smart were a parody of the James Bond movie franchise. "Do what they did except just stretch it half an inch", Mel Brooks said of the methods of this TV series. Max and 99 marry in season four, have twins in season five. Agent 99 became the first woman in an American hit sitcom to keep her job after marriage and motherhood. Talent Associates commissioned Mel Brooks and Buck Henry to write a script about a bungling James Bond–like hero. Brooks described the premise for the show which they created in an October 1965 Time magazine article: I was sick of looking at all those nice sensible situation comedies, they were such distortions of life. If a maid took over my house like Hazel, I'd set her hair on fire.
I wanted to do a unreal comic-strip kind of thing about something besides a family. No one had done a show about an idiot before. I decided to be the first. Brooks and Henry proposed the show to ABC, where network executives called it "un-American" and demanded a "lovable dog to give the show more heart", as well as scenes showing Maxwell Smart's mother. Brooks objected to the second suggestion: They wanted to put a print housecoat on the show. Max was to explain everything. I hate mothers on shows. Max has no mother, he never had one. The cast and crew contributed joke and gadget ideas Don Adams, but dialogue was ad-libbed. An exception is the third-season episode "The Little Black Book". Don Rickles encouraged Adams to misbehave, he ad-libbed; the result was so successful. The first four seasons were filmed at Sunset Bronson Studios, while the final season, shown on CBS, was filmed at CBS Studio Center. Brooks had little involvement with the series after the first season, but Henry served as story editor through 1967.
The crew of the show included: Leonard B. Stern – Executive producer for the entire run of the series Irving Szathmary – Music and theme composer and conductor for the entire run Don Adams – Director of 13 episodes and writer of 2 episodes David Davis – Associate producer Gary Nelson – Director of the most episodes Bruce Bilson – Director of the second most episodes Gerald C. Gardner and Dee Caruso – Head writers for the series Reza Badiyi – Occasional director Allan Burns and Chris Hayward – Frequent writers and producers Stan Burns and Mike Marmer – Frequent writers Richard Donner – Occasional director James Komack – Writer and director Arne Sultan – Frequent writer and producer Lloyd Turner and Whitey Mitchell – Frequent writers and producers of season five CONTROL is a spy agency founded at the beginning of the 20th century by Harold Harmon Hargrade, a career officer in the United States Navy's N-2 Branch. Hargrade served as the first Chief of CONTROL. "CONTROL" is not an acronym. Maxwell "Max" Smart, code number Agent 86 is the central character.
Despite being a top secret government agent, he is absurdly clumsy naive and has occasional lapses of attention. Due to his fr

The Discworld gods are the fictional deities from Terry Pratchett's Discworld series of fantasy novels. The Discworld, being a flat disc supported on the backs of four elephants on top of a giant flying turtle, exists in a region of the universe where reality is somewhat less consistent than it appears in our own, more mundane corner of existence; because reality on the Disc is so fragile and malleable, belief has a tendency to take on a life of its own, gods are far more obvious to the people of the Disc than they appear to us. Gods are everywhere on the Discworld, a crucial element of the world's peculiar ecology that gives power to belief and demands resolution to any and all narratives. Gods exist in potentia in numbers uncountable, but the moment an event of any note occurs – say, two snails happening to cross at a single point – a god becomes tied to it and begins to manifest in the physical world. Most gods remain small and unknown, but a few come to the notice of humanity, whose belief shapes and strengthens them until they gather enough power to join the Disc's vast, unwieldy pantheon.
Gods on the Discworld exist as long as people believe in them and their power grows as their followers increase. This is a philosophy echoing the real-world politics of the power of religion and is most detailed in the novel Small Gods. If people should cease believing in a particular god the god begins to fade and will "die", becoming little more than a faded wispy echo. Another category of godlike being on the disc is the "anthropomorphic personification". Beings such as The Old High Ones, the creatures from the Dungeon Dimensions and the Auditors of Reality appear to exist without, in some cases, the power of human belief. On the Disc, the power of belief blurs the line between mortality. Many human characters, such as Mort, Susan Sto Helit, Lobsang Ludd, Jeremy Clockson, Tiffany Aching, Pteppic have permanently or momentarily assumed the roles of gods, or at least of anthropomorphic personifications. Tooth Fairies and the History Monks are groups of humans; the total number of gods on the Disc is infinite.
Of those, the number powerful enough to manifest is about 3000, according to The Folklore of Discworld. Here is a list of most of the gods mentioned in the series to date, describing their roles in the stories; the major gods live in an Olympus-like mountain-top kingdom in the centre of the Discworld called Dunmanifestin. Most of the major gods tend to stay at home limiting their presence in the rest of Discworld to the occasional lightning bolt. Cori Celesti, the mountain upon which Dunmanifestin stands, can be seen from anywhere on the Disc on a clear day, has made lasting impressions on most of the original myth-creators; those gods known to reside in Dunmanifestin are: The lightning goddess of the beTrobi people. Mentioned in The Colour of Magic. Aniger is a minor goddess of squashed animals, she is a recent addition to the Discworld pantheon, appearing only after some developments relating to the speed of carts and quality of roads. Since she is witnessed by thinking "Oh God, what was that I hit?", she may be an Oh God, much like Bilious is.
She is mentioned in The Last Hero. Her name is "Regina"; the minor goddess of Things That Stick in Drawers, Anoia is praised by rattling a drawer and crying "How can it close on the damned thing but not open with it? Who bought this? Do we use it?" As she says, sooner or every curse is a prayer. She eats corkscrews and is responsible for Things Down The Backs of Sofas, is considering moving into stuck zips; the Maccalariat family of Ankh-Morpork have been Anoians for five generations. She is not part of the number of gods praised at the Temple of Small Gods, but instead has a freelance priestess who serves for various other minor deities. Thud! Refers to a painting of Anoia Rising From The Cutlery, she was a volcano goddess under the name Lela. Anoia are first mentioned in Going Postal, she appears in Wintersmith as a tired, skinny woman wearing a bedsheet and smoking a cigarette that sparks like a volcano. On a whim, Moist von Lipwig named her as one of the gods responsible for his "miraculous" recovery of a large sum of buried money that he had in fact himself buried: Since belief is what empowers Discworld gods, she benefited tremendously from the resulting surge of believers.
As of Making Money her religion has seen something of a revival, now she is making a move into becoming the Goddess of Lost Causes. The Ephebian Goddess of Love, held in low regard by the god Om and sister to the goddess Patina, she bribed Rhome of Ephebe to steal and hide the Golden Falchion, in return she gave Elenor of Tsort to Rhome. Mentioned in Small Gods and Discworld Noir; the God of Wine and Things on Sticks. He appears as a overly-merry man in a toga. In Tsort he is known as Smimto, Tuvelpit in Ephebe, he never gets a hangover, but he does get the unpleasant side-effects when Bilious takes a hangover cure. The effects of this link, should either drink time-reversed alcohol such as vul-nut wine, is undiscovered, his name means "one who drinks". He is based on Bacchus, the Greco-Roman god of win
