Untouched (Angel)

"Untouched" is episode 4 of season 2 in the television show Angel broadcast on the WB network. In this episode, a vision from Cordelia leads Angel to Bethany, a runaway teen who possesses controlled telekinetic powers. Unbeknownst to Angel, Lilah has brought Bethany to Los Angeles, hoping to groom her into being an assassin for Wolfram & Hart. Lilah attempts to provoke violent episodes in Bethany in order for Wolfram and Hart to gain control of the teen. First she has her cornered in an alley by potential rapists hired by Wolfram and Hart, she has her sexually abusive father appear and try to take Bethany back home. Meanwhile, Darla continues to plague Angel's dreams and Angel finds himself sleeping longer and longer hours. Lilah sneaks into Lindsey's office to rifle through his papers. Darla reveals she has been using a drug called Calynthia powder to keep Angel asleep while she manipulates his dreams. Angel wakes to find Wesley bickering about whether they should offer to pay Gunn. Angel and Wesley begin to discuss Angel's sleeping habits, but Cordelia gets a vision that sends Angel out to save a young girl from two potential rapists.

As two men are about to attack the girl, she telekinetically slides a dumpster across the alleyway and smashes the men against a wall. At the crime scene, Angel pretends to be a detective in order to get information about the crime from an officer, he finds the young girl from the alley. Scared, she sends a rebar through Angel's chest, although upon realizing that she didn't kill him, she seems a little less afraid; the girl returns to the apartment. Gunn arrives to offer his help and Angel sends him out to find information on the men Bethany hurt; as Bethany drifts to sleep, she dreams of her abusive childhood and unintentionally sends a bedside lamp flying into Lilah, watching her fitful sleep. Terrified, Bethany flees from the apartment. Bethany seeks Angel's help and they discuss her lack of control over her telekinetic powers. Holland stresses that if Lilah's work with Bethany is unsuccessful it could damage their other projects. Wesley deduces; that night, Bethany finds Angel in his bed and she offers herself to him, as the abuse she has suffered has led her to believe that she is just an object for use.

He declines, after they talk, he sends her back to her own bed. After Angel helps Bethany work to control her power, he meets Gunn at one of the potential rapists' apartment, he brings up the payment idea and Gunn agrees, meaning that Gunn is now part of Angel Investigations. They find evidence. Cordelia talks to Bethany over lattes until she is kidnapped by Hart's men. Angel and Gunn go after Angel is able to get Bethany back from them. At the hotel, Bethany's father is used as a weapon to set her off and, as her control breaks, she causes serious structural damage to the building and lifting her father off his feet as she begins to telekinetically damage his body. Angel is able to break through to her and Bethany reveals that she has gained control over her powers by telling her father "Goodbye" before hurling him out of the window and allowing him to fall until she stops his descent five feet from the ground, letting him land unharmed, her independence regained and her self-confidence increasing, Bethany calmly confronts Lilah and packs up her things, striking out on her own.

Lilah and Angel speak on the doorstep. In a last-ditch effort to stop Bethany from trusting Angel, Lilah reveals that Angel is a vampire – to which an unfazed Bethany replies; as Bethany walks away, Angel says to Lilah, "It looks like you're going to have to find someone else's brain to play with," to which Lilah replies, "Yeah, we have someone in mind." Angel tells Lilah "Goodnight," and, while he's walking away, Lilah snidely mutters "Sweet dreams." The shot in which Bethany telekinetically explodes every window in the hotel was done using special effects, says production designer Stuart Blatt. The Angel production department built a set matching the superficial layout of the outside of the hotel, filmed a window of the set exploding; the visual effects designer took that image and tiled it over the intact windows: "Through the magic of digital medium." Blatt says, " created a whole wall of the hotel exploding." Cordelia refers to the Buffy episode "Lovers Walk". This episode marks Gunn's official, paid association with Angel Investigations, introduces his signature weapon — a large axe fashioned for him by some of his street crew from a hub cap and an axle — which would remain with him until it is destroyed in season four.

Lilah's response to Angel's remark about playing with someone else's brain is a reference to the resurrection of Darla, intended to devastate Angel, as well as to the upcoming 3rd season episode "That Vision Thing" wherein Wolfram & Hart do as much to Cordelia. Angel references a famous line from The Incredible Hulk TV series when he says "You wouldn't like me when I'm happy". "Untouched" on IMDb "Untouched" at TV.com

Simon Strousse Baker

Simon Strousse Baker was the 6th president of Washington & Jefferson College. Baker, the great-great-grandson of Dr. Thaddeus Dod, the founder of Washington Academy, was born in Amwell Township, Pennsylvania on July 11, 1866. In 1892, he graduated from Washington & Jefferson College, where he played football and was a member of Phi Delta Theta, he earned a master's degree from W&J in 1912 and a Doctor of Laws degree from University of Pittsburgh in 1922. He enjoyed playing golf, taking long walks, reading Greek and Early American history, he frequented "many a smart Pittsburgh club" and took his wife to opera or theatre shows in Pittsburgh. He worked for 25 years as an associate superintendent of Pittsburgh's schools. Baker served as acting president of Washington & Jefferson following the death of Dr. Black, he was elected president in his own right on January 26, 1922, he was inaugurated on March 29, 1922. During his tenure, the college physical plant of the college underwent extensive renovation and modernization.

Modern business methods were adopted and the endowment grew considerably. The college experienced advances in academics, he was sympathetic and well liked by the college's trustees and by "many a townsman." However, the student body felt that Baker was "autocratic" and held an "unfriendly attitude toward the student body as individuals." Students objected to his policies regarding campus garb and athletics. Baker defended himself, saying that the perceived ill-will towards students was unintentional and a misunderstanding. Nonetheless, the student body held a strike and general walkout on March 18, 1931. Baker had hoped to complete his plans to build a Moffat Memorial building, a chemistry building, a stadium before retiring. But, in light of the strike, he resigned on April 23, 1931, for health reasons and for "the good of the College." Baker had been in ill health since undergoing a serious operation in 1930. His health and temperament never recovered from the death of his only son, Lieut. Edward David Baker, an aviator, shot down in France in 1918.

The trustees accepted his resignation on May 13, 1931. He committed suicide on October 10, 1932

Nicholson v Haldimand-Norfolk Reg Police Commrs

Nicholson v Haldimand-Norfolk Reg Police Commrs, 1 SCR 311, is a leading decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in Canadian administrative law. The decision was a landmark reform of administrative law, in which the Court increased the degree of court intervention on procedural grounds; the Court stated that procedural fairness exists on a continuum and that parties are entitled to a certain degree of it based on the setting and their circumstances. Prior to this decision, procedural fairness only applied to tribunals that were classified as "judicial" or "quasi-judicial". Nicholson was employed for a period of 15 months by the regional police of Haldimand County when he was terminated without any reason given; the employer claimed that the Police Act allowed them to dismiss him at will, as he was still within an 18-month probationary period of employment. Nicholson, argued that he had a common law right to be treated and be notified of the reasons for his termination; the issue before the Supreme Court of Canada was whether Nicholson's employers were entitled to terminate him without a hearing and without any reasons given.

A majority Court found that Nicholson was entitled to a common law duty of fairness and so should have been able to make submissions to the employer and should have been notified orally or in writing. This paralleled the UK House of Lords decision in Ridge v Baldwin, quoted with approval by Laskin C. J. Laskin noted the difficulty in classifying decisions as "quasi-judicial" or administrative, which decided the outcome of cases: he classification of statutory functions as judicial, quasi-judicial or administrative is very difficult, to say the least. Although Laskin did not explicitly reject the categorization of decisions as administrative or judicial, he extended some of the rules of natural justice into administrative decisions, holding that there is a "general duty of fairness" in administrative decisions. In the result, the decision of the Board of Commissioners of Police was quashed and costs were awarded to Nicholson; the content of the general "duty of fairness" was clarified by the Supreme Court of Canada in Baker v. Canada, where the Court set out a test for determining when certain procedural protections are required.

Molten chocolate cake

Molten chocolate cake is a popular dessert that combines the elements of a flourless chocolate cake and a soufflé. Its name derives from the dessert's liquid chocolate center, it is known as chocolate moelleux, chocolate lava cake, or lava cake, it should not be confused with chocolate fondant, a recipe that contains little flour, but instead a lot of chocolate and butter, hence melting on the palate. The United States-based chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten claims to have invented molten chocolate cake in New York City in 1987, but the French chef and chocolatier Jacques Torres disputes this, arguing that such a dish existed in France. According to Vongerichten, he pulled a chocolate sponge cake from the oven before it was done and found that the center was still runny, but was warm and had both a good taste and texture. Regardless of who invented the dish, Vongerichten has been credited with popularizing it in the United States, it became a de rigueur inclusion on high-end restaurant dessert menus.

Molten chocolate cakes characteristically contain five ingredients: butter, sugar and flour. The butter and chocolate are melted together, while the eggs are either whisked with the sugar to form a thick paste, producing a denser pastry, or separated, with the white whipped into a meringue to provide more lift and a lighter result. A tablespoon of strong coffee is sometimes added to enhance the chocolate flavor. Vanilla extract and cinnamon are additionally recommended in some cases to add extra flavor; the cakes are baked in individual portions in ramekins, or brioche molds. However, there are a number of creative variations in chocolate lava cakes or molten chocolate cakes such as preparing the cakes in a coffee or tea mug; the cake can be prepared in a microwave oven instead of an oven in certain cases. A scoop of ice cream, fresh fruit, a drizzling of fruit and/or chocolate sauce, dustings of powdered sugar are typical enhancements. A sprig of mint is sometimes used as a garnish.
