My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a Canadian-American children's animated fantasy television series created by Lauren Faust for Hasbro. The series is based on Hasbro's My Little Pony line of toys and animated works and is referred to by collectors as the fourth generation of the franchise; the series premiered on October 2010, on The Hub cable channel. Hasbro selected animator Lauren Faust as the executive producer for the show. Faust sought to challenge the established nature of the existing My Little Pony line, creating more in-depth characters and adventurous settings; the show follows a studious anthropomorphic unicorn pony named Twilight Sparkle as her mentor Princess Celestia guides her to learn about friendship in the town of Ponyville. Twilight and her dragon assistant Spike become close friends with five other ponies: Applejack, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie; each of the ponies represent a different facet of friendship, Twilight discovers herself to be a key part of the magical artifacts known as the "Elements of Harmony".
The ponies travel on adventures and help others around Equestria while working out problems that arise in their own friendships. The series has become a major commercial success, becoming the most rated original production in the Hub Network's broadcast history and leading to new merchandising opportunities for Hasbro, including books, collectible trading cards, comics. Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has gained a large following of older viewers young and middle-aged men, who call themselves "bronies". Portions of the show have become part of the remix culture, have formed the basis for a variety of internet memes; as of April 2019, the show is on its ninth and final season. A feature-length film adaptation directly based on the TV series, titled My Little Pony: The Movie, was theatrically released on October 6, 2017 in the United States. A spin-off franchise, My Little Pony: Equestria Girls, was launched in 2013; the first two films, Equestria Girls and Rainbow Rocks, has been shown in limited theatrical screenings prior to television broadcast and home media release.
Hasbro, Inc. has produced several incarnations and lines of toys and entertainment related to the My Little Pony franchise labeled by collectors as "generations". The animated series My Little Pony Tales which premiered in 1992 was the toy line's most recent television series before Friendship Is Magic, featuring the pony designs of the first toy line, it was followed by various direct-to-video releases, which featured designs up to the third incarnation of the franchise. Just as Michael Bay's film had helped to boost the new Transformers toy line, Hasbro wanted to retool the My Little Pony franchise and update it to better suit the current demographic and taste of young girls. According to Margaret Loesch, CEO of Hub Network, revisiting properties that had worked in the past was an important programming decision, influenced to an extent by the opinions of the network's programming executives, a number of whom were once fans of such shows. Senior Vice President Linda Steiner stated that they "intended to have the show appeal to a larger demographic", with the concept of "co-viewing" of parents with their children being a central theme of the Hub Network's programming.
Central themes that Hasbro sought for the show included friendships and working together, factors they determined from market research in how girls played with their toys. Animator and writer Lauren Faust approached Hasbro, seeking to develop her girls' toys property "Galaxy Girls" into an animated series. Faust, who had worked on Cartoon Network's The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, had been pitching original animation aimed at girls for years, but had always been rejected by studios and networks because cartoons for girls were considered unsuccessful; when she pitched to Lisa Licht of Hasbro Studios, Licht showed Faust one of their recent My Little Pony animated works, Princess Promenade, "completely on the fly". Licht considered that Faust's style was well suited to that line, asked her to consider "some ideas where to take a new version of the franchise". Faust was hired by Hasbro to create a pitch bible for the show, allowing her to get additional help with conceptualization.
Faust said she was "extremely skeptical" about taking the job at first because she had always found shows based on girls' toys to be boring and unrelatable. My Little Pony was one of her favorite childhood toys, but she was disappointed that her imagination at the time was nothing like the animated shows, in which the characters, according to Faust, "just had endless tea parties, giggled over nothing and defeated villains by either sharing with them or crying". With the chance to work on My Little Pony, she hoped to prove that "cartoons for girls don't have to be a puddle of smooshy, cutesy-wootsy, goody-two-shoeness". To do this, she incorporated into the design of the characters and the show many elements that contradicted idealized stereotypes of girls, such as diverse personalities, the message that friends can be different and can get into arguments but still be friends, the idea that girls should not be limited by what others say they can or cannot do. Elements of the characters' personalities and the show's settings were based on her own childhood imagination of the ponies' adventures, in part inspired by the animated shows that her brothers would watch while growing up, such as Transformers and G.

The basilic vein is a large superficial vein of the upper limb that helps drain parts of the hand and forearm. It originates on the medial side of the dorsal venous network of the hand and travels up the base of the forearm, where its course is visible through the skin as it travels in the subcutaneous fat and fascia lying superficial to the muscles. Near the region anterior to the cubital fossa, in the bend of the elbow joint, the basilic vein connects with the other large superficial vein of the upper extremity, the cephalic vein, via the median cubital vein; the layout of superficial veins in the forearm is variable from person to person, there is a profuse network of unnamed superficial veins that the basilic vein communicates with. As it ascends the medial side of the biceps in the arm proper, the basilic vein perforates the brachial fascia above the medial epicondyle, or as high as mid-arm. There, around the lower border of the teres major muscle, the anterior and posterior circumflex humeral veins feed into it, just before it joins the brachial veins to form the axillary vein.
Along with other superficial veins in the forearm, the basilic vein is an acceptable site for venipuncture. IV nurses sometimes refer to the basilic vein as the "virgin vein," since with the arm supinated during phlebotomy the basilic vein below the elbow becomes awkward to access, is therefore infrequently used. Vascular surgeons sometimes utilize the basilic vein to create an AV fistula or AV graft for hemodialysis access in patients with renal failure.

Ed, Edd n Eddy follows the lives of "the Eds", three preteen boys who all share variations of the name Ed, but differ in their personalities: Ed is the strong, dim-witted dogsbody of the group; the three devise plans to scam the cul-de-sac kids out of their money, which they want to use to buy jawbreakers. However, problems always ensue, the Eds' schemes end in failure and humiliation; the cul-de-sac kids do not include the Eds as part of their group. The group of kids consist of: Jonny 2×4 is a loner whom his peers consider to be a nuisance, spends most of his time with his imaginary friend, a wooden board named Plank.
All of the cul-de-sac kids share a common fear of the Kanker Sisters, Lee and Marie, three teenage girls who live in a nearby trailer park and are in love with the Eds. Aside from the Eds, the other cul-de-sac kids, the Kanker Sisters, no other characters appeared in the series until the fifth season, when the silhouettes of other people were shown, in "Mission Ed-Possible", the arms of Eddy's father and Ed's mother were seen. In the series finale, Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show, Eddy's adult brother was seen for the first time, making him the only non-main character, the only adult character to fully appear on the show; the series took place within the fictional town of Peach Creek, new locations were introduced. The first four seasons of the show are set during a endless summer vacation, though from the fifth season onwards, the characters are shown attending junior high school in the fall and winter months. Although cartoonist Danny Antonucci began his career by working as an animator on various children's series for Hanna-Barbera, his solo works were edgy and aimed at adult audiences.
He gained notoriety with the 1987 short film Lupo the Butcher and after founding his own production studio, a.k.a. Cartoon in 1994, created the series The Brothers Grunt for MTV, it was cancelled, upon being met with poor reviews. On a dare, Antonucci decided that he would try producing a children's animated series of his own. While designing a commercial, he ended up drawing three characters that he felt pleased with. Growing excited over their potential, he named them Ed, Eddy and spent the following months developing a show around them, he faxed a one-page concept sheet to Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon in 1996. Both studios responded, Cartoon Network in only 20 minutes, were enthusiastic and wanted to see more. After Cartoon Network agreed to let Antonucci have control of the show, conversations between Antonucci and the studio continued. Vice president of programming and production of Cartoon Network, Mike Lazzo, showed high interest in the series and requested a show bible, which came through by fax, a few pages at a time, over a period of the next few months.
After an affirmative response from Cartoon Network president Betty Cohen, the legal paperwork and deal-making began, followed by a start-up meeting at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles. A deal was made a.k.a.. Cartoon, would p

Vancouver is a coastal seaport city in western Canada, located in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia. As the most populous city in the province, the 2016 census recorded 631,486 people in the city, up from 603,502 in 2011; the Greater Vancouver area had a population of 2,463,431 in 2016, making it the third-largest metropolitan area in Canada. Vancouver has the highest population density in Canada with over 5,400 people per square kilometre, which makes it the fifth-most densely populated city with over 250,000 residents in North America behind New York City, San Francisco, Mexico City according to the 2011 census. Vancouver is one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities in Canada according to that census. 30% of the city's inhabitants are of Chinese heritage. Vancouver is classed as a Beta global city. Vancouver is named as one of the top five worldwide cities for livability and quality of life, the Economist Intelligence Unit acknowledged it as the first city ranked among the top-ten of the world's most well-living cities for five consecutive years.
Vancouver has hosted many international conferences and events, including the 1954 British Empire and Commonwealth Games, UN Habitat I, Expo 86, the World Police and Fire Games in 1989 and 2009. In 2014, following thirty years in California, the TED conference made Vancouver its indefinite home. Several matches of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup were played in Vancouver, including the final at BC Place; the original settlement, named Gastown, grew up on clearcuts on the west edge of the Hastings Mill logging sawmill's property, where a makeshift tavern had been set up on a plank between two stumps and the proprietor, Gassy Jack, persuaded the curious millworkers to build him a tavern, on July 1, 1867. From that first enterprise, other stores and some hotels appeared along the waterfront to the west. Gastown became formally laid out as a registered townsite dubbed Granville, B. I.. As part of the land and political deal whereby the area of the townsite was made the railhead of the Canadian Pacific Railway, it was renamed "Vancouver" and incorporated shortly thereafter as a city, in 1886.
By 1887, the Canadian Pacific transcontinental railway was extended westward to the city to take advantage of its large natural seaport to the Pacific Ocean, which soon became a vital link in a trade route between the Orient / East Asia, Eastern Canada, Europe. As of 2014, Port Metro Vancouver is the third-largest port by tonnage in the Americas, 27th in the world, the busiest and largest in Canada, the most diversified port in North America. While forestry remains its largest industry, Vancouver is well known as an urban centre surrounded by nature, making tourism its second-largest industry. Major film production studios in Vancouver and nearby Burnaby have turned Greater Vancouver and nearby areas into one of the largest film production centres in North America, earning it the nickname "Hollywood North"; the city takes its name from George Vancouver, who explored the inner harbour of Burrard Inlet in 1792 and gave various places British names. The family name "Vancouver" itself originates from the Dutch "Van Coevorden", denoting somebody from the city of Coevorden, Netherlands.
The explorer's ancestors came to England "from Coevorden", the origin of the name that became "Vancouver". Archaeological records indicate that Aboriginal people were living in the "Vancouver" area from 8,000 to 10,000 years ago; the city is located in the traditional and presently unceded territories of the Squamish and Tseil-Waututh peoples of the Coast Salish group. They had villages in various parts of present-day Vancouver, such as Stanley Park, False Creek, Point Grey and near the mouth of the Fraser River. Europeans became acquainted with the area of the future Vancouver when José María Narváez of Spain explored the coast of present-day Point Grey and parts of Burrard Inlet in 1791—although one author contends that Francis Drake may have visited the area in 1579; the explorer and North West Company trader Simon Fraser and his crew became the first-known Europeans to set foot on the site of the present-day city. In 1808, they travelled from the east down the Fraser River as far as Point Grey.
The Fraser Gold Rush of 1858 brought over 25,000 men from California, to nearby New Westminster on the Fraser River, on their way to the Fraser Canyon, bypassing what would become Vancouver. Vancouver is among British Columbia's youngest cities. A sawmill established at Moodyville in 1863, began the city's long relationship with logging, it was followed by mills owned by Captain Edward Stamp on the south shore of the inlet. Stamp, who had begun logging in the Port Alberni area, first attempted to run a mill at Brockton Point, but difficult currents and reefs forced the relocation of the operation in 1867 to a point near the foot of Dunlevy Street; this mill, known as the Hastings Mill, became the nucleus. The mill's central role in the city waned after the arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the 1880s, it remained important to the local economy until it closed in the 1920s. The settlement which came to be called Gastown grew around
