Lautoka

Lautoka is the second largest city of Fiji. It is in the west of the island of Viti Levu, 24 kilometres north of Nadi and port of entry in Fiji, after Suva. Lying in the heart of Fiji's sugar cane-growing region, it is known as the Sugar City. Covering an area of 16 square kilometres, it had a population of 52,220 at the 2007 census, the most recent to date. Lautoka is known as the Sugar City because of its sugar cane belt areas; the main Lautoka Sugar Mill was founded in 1903, is the city's biggest employer by far. Built for the Colonial Sugar Refining Company by workers from India and the Solomon Islands between 1899 and 1903, it hires some 1,300 employees today. Other industries include timber milling, garment manufacturing, brewery, blending, fishing, domestic items and construction. In 2012 Lautoka was announced as the administration capital of the western division... The name of the city is derived from two Fijian words meaning "spear hit." According to an oral tradition, the name arose following a duel between two chiefs.

As one speared the other, he was reported to have cried "Lau-toka!". The first known European sighting of the Lautoka area took place on 7 May 1789. Captain William Bligh spotted and charted the coasts of Lautoka while making his epic voyage to Timor, in the wake of the mutiny on the Bounty. Incorporated as a town in 1929, Lautoka was proclaimed a city on 25 February 1977, it is governed by a 16-member city council. Lautoka does not have a mayor but has a government-appointed administrator like all urban centres in Fiji since the military coup of 2006; the former administrator was Parveen Bala, mayor of Ba. A well-known past Mayor is Ratilal Patel, elected mayor in 1967. Lautoka is the only city in Fiji's Western Division, is the industrial hub of Fiji which contains more than 50 percent of the nation's population, it is the headquarters of the Fiji Electricity Authority, the Fiji Pine Ltd, the National Marketing Authority. The headquarters and studios of Mix FM Fiji are located in Lautoka. With National coverage, MixFM is the only English station in Fiji to be based outside of Suva.

Since 1970, the population of Lautoka has grown and in the last twenty years it has changed in structure. In the early 1970s the population was estimated to be about 12,000, the vast majority of inhabitants being Indian, as would be expected considering the early growth of the city was associated with the sugar industry. All of the present Indian inhabitants are descendants of the early girmityas. In 1986 the population was 39,000 and in 1996 43,000, but it is not clear how the boundaries of the urban area were defined at either of these censuses. In 2005 the population including the suburban zones was about 50,000, occupying a total area of about 16 km²; the population of Lautoka including the rural districts is around 80,000. But much of the recent growth of the city itself has been due to indigenous Fijians moving into the urban area; the city is the birthplace of PGA Tour Hall of Famer Vijay Singh and Ghazal and Tabla star Cassius Khan. Port of Lautoka is the main maritime gateway for western Viti Levu and is the second largest port in Fiji.

The port is used for bulk sugar, woodchips and gas. The port is used for cruises, Blue Lagoon Cruises and Nai's Cruises are based here. Lautoka is served by Pacific Sunbeam buses. Pacific Transport connects Lautoka directly to Ba. Sunbeam runs 8 times daily Queen's Highway Service, linking Lautoka to Suva with stops at Nadi International Airport, Nadi Town, Fijian Resort, Sigatoka Town, Abua Sands, Hideaway Resort, Naviti Resort, Warwick Resorts, Beach House, Crusoes Retreat Junction, Deuba Inn and Tradewinds Lami.

Phillip Jeffries

FBI Special Agent Phillip Jeffries is a fictional character in the Twin Peaks franchise. He was created by series creator David Lynch and portrayed by David Bowie and voiced and dubbed by Nathan Frizzell in Twin Peaks: The Return, he first appeared in the prequel film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Twin Peaks: The Missing Pieces, which extended his role from the film, returns in the 2017 revival series. Jeffries was an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation who disappeared while on assignment in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1987, his role was expanded in the 2017 revival series, but with the death of Bowie, Jeffries is instead depicted as a white glowing orb right by a giant steaming kettle in a motel room above a convenience store. Before his passing Bowie gave Lynch permission to reuse footage of his character from the movie on the condition that he be dubbed by a Louisianan actor. Phillip Jeffries is shown checking into a hotel in Buenos Aires. Jeffries is seen vanishing when entering an elevator.

He emerges from a different elevator several years at the Philadelphia FBI office. He was believed to have disappeared two years ago while on assignment in Argentina, he hurries to the office of his former superior, Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole and starts raving in a loud and disturbed manner rambling about Judy while insisting that she not be discussed, referring at one stage to Special Agent Dale Cooper and yelling “Who do you think this/that is, there?" Jeffries went on to narrate in an abstract fashion where he had been since his disappearance, discussing a discovery in Seattle of a meeting he witnessed above a convenience store and an important ring. Cole had Albert try to figure out how Jeffries got into the building, while Cooper, noticing the lights flickering, ran back out into the hallway; as Jeffries continued his rant, Cole tried to call for back-up. He vanishes after realizing it's February 1989. Jeffries reemerged in Buenos Aires, scaring a maid and the same bellhop from 1987, who had seen him vanish and now reappear.

Soon after this, Jeffries disappeared, this time permanently. After Dale Cooper's entrapment in The Black Lodge, Phillip Jeffries had an unspecified arrangement with Cooper's doppelgänger, who himself claimed to have been working undercover with Jeffries for over twenty years. At one point, Jeffries requested information from Albert Rosenfield concerning a man in Colombia, claiming that it was pertinent to the safety of Cooper. A week the agent in Colombia was killed. Jeffries somehow lost his human form, by September 2014 he appeared to have become a white glowing orb emitted from the end of a large kettle-shaped device, his chamber was located behind room #8 at a motel only accessible from the upper floor of a certain convenience store. In addition, another individual began assuming Jeffries' identity, hiring Ray Monroe and Darya to kill the doppelgänger, known to his associates as "Mr. C". While in South Dakota, Mr. C attempted to contact Jeffries via radio, only to find this stranger on the other end.

The person who answered mentioned that he knew the doppelganger had met with Major Garland Briggs, was calling to tell him goodbye. "Jeffries" told him that the doppelgänger would be "going back in" the next day and that he would be with BOB again disconnected. After shooting Mr. C, Ray contacted "Phillip" on his phone and said that he believed Mr. C was dead, or else Ray would finish the job when Mr. C found him at "the farm." At gunpoint, Monroe confessed to Mr. C that somebody named Phillip Jeffires had orchestrated the prison break and ordered him to place a ring on Mr. C's body after he died. Jeffries was in hiding somewhere called "the Dutchman's."In one of his Monica Bellucci dreams, Gordon Cole relived the strange incident in 1989 where Jeffries had appeared in Philadelphia and cast doubt on Dale Cooper's identity, which Cole had since forgotten. Albert admitted that he was starting to remember the day Cole referred to. Mr. C drove to the convenience store and received an audience with the real Jeffries at the Dutchman's, determining that he had no involvement with Ray.

Mr. C asked him about Judy, whom Jeffries had mentioned at the FBI office back in 1989, whether Judy wanted something from Mr. C. Jeffries responded that he could ask Judy himself, a series of numbers floated out of his orb, which Mr. C wrote down. After the doppelgänger was killed, the real Dale Cooper accompanied MIKE to see Jeffries in person. Cooper said he was interested in a particular date: February 23, 1989, Jeffries agreed to find it for him. Commenting that it was "slippery in here" Jeffries manifested the symbol found in Owl Cave, which turned into an "8" symbol with a bead modulating around its lower half. Jeffries said, he added: "There may be... someone. Did you ask me this?" Jeffries said to give Gordon Cole his regards, that Cole would remember "the unofficial version." In a loud crackle of electricity, Cooper appeared in the woods near Twin Peaks in 1989. The original editing of Fire Walk With Me puts Jeffries reappearance in 1988 since it is before the "one year later" hard title.

But the shooting script, The Missing Pieces, The Secret History of Twin Peaks, Part 15 of The Return put it in 1989. David Bowie was approached to reprise his role as Jeffries in the 2017 limited series, but his lawyer informed David Lynch that he was unavailable due to his declining health, not public knowledge until his death on January 10, 2016. Bowie gave Lynch permission to reuse footage of the character from the film, however, he was unhappy with the accent he had used in the film, so he requested to have his voice re-dubbed by an authentic Louisianan actor

Iliacus muscle

The iliacus is a flat, triangular muscle which fills the iliac fossa. It forms the lateral portion of iliopsoas, providing flexion of the thigh and lower limb at the acetabulofemoral joint; the iliacus arises from the iliac fossa on the interior side of the hip bone, from the region of the anterior inferior iliac spine. It joins the psoas major to form the Iliopsoas, as which it proceeds across the iliopubic eminence through the muscular lacuna to its insertion on the lesser trochanter of the femur, its fibers are inserted in front of those of the psoas major and extend distally over the lesser trochanter. The iliopsoas is innervated by direct branches from the lumbar plexus. In open-chain exercises, as part of the iliopsoas, the iliacus is important for lifting the femur forward. In closed-chain exercises, the iliopsoas bends the trunk forward and can lift the trunk from a lying posture because the psoas major crosses several vertebral joints and the sacroiliac joint. From its origin in the lesser pelvis the iliacus acts on the hip joint.
