Naqada is a town on the west bank of the Nile in Qena Governorate, Egypt. It was known in Egyptian as nbwt, which became Coptic Ⲉⲙⲃⲱ, borrowed as classical antiquity as Ombos, its name derives from Egyptian nbw, meaning "gold", on account of the proximity of gold mines in the Eastern Desert. Naqada comprises some villages such as Tukh, Khatara and Zawayda, it stands near the site of a necropolis from prehistoric Egypt around 4400–3000 BCE. Naqada has given its name to the widespread Naqada culture, which existed at the time here and at other sites, including el Badari, the Gerzeh culture and Nekhen; the large quantity of remains from Naqada have enabled the dating of the entire culture, throughout Egypt and environs. The town was the centre of the cult of Set and large tombs were built there around c. 3500 BC. The town is one of few to have had a Coptic majority in 1960.

The Big Broadcast of 1937

The Big Broadcast of 1937 is a 1936 Paramount Pictures production directed by Mitchell Leisen, is the third in the series of Big Broadcast movies. The musical comedy stars Jack Benny, George Burns, Gracie Allen, Bob Burns, Martha Raye, Shirley Ross, Ray Milland, Benny Fields, Frank Forest and the orchestra of Benny Goodman, it was in this film that Leopold Stokowski made his movie debut conducting two of his Bach transcriptions. Uncredited roles include Jack Mulhall. German animator Oskar Fischinger was hired to create an animation sequence in Technicolor. However, when Paramount changed the production to black-and-white only, Fischinger's original abstract animation design was changed to a hybrid animation and live-action sequence showing consumer products emanating from a broadcasting tower, to the song "Radio Dynamics" by Ralph Rainger, it has yet to receive a DVD or VHS issue. Jack Benny as Jack Carson George Burns as Mr. Platt Gracie Allen as Mrs. Platt Bob Burns as Bob Black Martha Raye as Patsy Shirley Ross as Gwen Holmes Ray Milland as Bob Miller Ellen Drew as Telephone Girl Leonard Maltin described it as an "almost unbearable musical", that "manages to waste the talent of its formidable cast", giving it 1½ out of 4 stars.

Drummond geometry

Drummond geometry is a trading method consisting of a series of technical analysis tools invented by the Canadian trader Charles Drummond starting in the 1970s and continuing to the present. The method establishes support and resistance areas in multiple time periods and uses these to determine high probability trading areas. Drummond geometry consists of the following: Short term trend lines based on two bars in various configurations. Short term 3-period displaced moving averages. An envelope consisting of two trading bands. Co-ordination of these elements in three or more time frames. Typical timeframes vary according to the trader's goal: Daily, monthly for swing traders Daily, Monthly and yearly for long-term position traders. 15-minute and daily for intraday traders The usual moving average length for the envelopes and midline is 3-periods. The method relies on a moving average based on the "PL Dot"; the formula for the PL Dot is the average of the high and close of the last three bars, displaced forward one bar: / 3 Each completed bar generates a new PL dot and this series of dots form a moving average, plotted either as a continuous line or as an individual dot on each bar.

Both the dot itself and the moving average formed by the dots are by convention called the "PL Dot." Indicators developed for the efficient application of P&L charting or Drummond geometry include the assemblage of several P&L lines and levels into groups that represent future support and resistance "zones," which are further classified into "nearby" and "further-out" support and resistance areas. Other indicators include multiple time period overlays of support and resistance from one time period onto a lower time period, for example from a daily time period onto an hourly chart, or of monthly and weekly overlays onto a daily chart. Recent enhancements include the "EOTEM" or "pipes" indicators which combine momentum indicators, predicted resistance and support areas; the "pipes" indicator includes elements from traditional Drummond geometry as well. Statistical studies show positive effectiveness of the predicted support and resistance levels established by Drummond geometry. Individual traders have reported both better and worse results as the trading approach requires traders to recognize signals and take action on them, that skill varies by individuals.

A raw statistical analysis of the tools has been published. If the line is not approached it should not be included in the statistical category called hold. A category showing statistics for closes far away from a line is misleading if price was never near the line in the beginning; the short-term moving average known as the PL dot has a sensitive response to changes in trend conditions due to the short averaging scale and the nature of the components which include in the average the highs and lows as well as the close, thus taking into consideration the volatility as well as the resting place of the period being measured. The "Drummond Lines" or short-term two-bar trend lines can be shown to project support and resistance which the methodology takes as a starting point and works to improve these odds by specifying which tools should be used under which circumstances.

Dublab is a non-profit music public broadcasting internet radio station based in Los Angeles. They have been involved with art exhibition, film projects, event production, record releases, their broadcast is transmitted via Shoutcast, open formatted and live five days per week with two hour shows hosted by a collective of 30 DJs. These Shows are downloadable on the dublab website. Twice a year they broadcast live for four weeks to raise funds, known as their Proton Drive, their name is a portmanteau of dubbing and laboratory for the combined meaning: a place of experimenting with sampling music. Examples of this, besides their stream, is their film production Secondhand Sureshots where they gave producers, such as Daedelus, five dollars to buy albums from thrift stores and sampling the music to create new tracks. Another in audio/visual form is Into Infinity a collaboration with Creative Commons, it is a group art exhibition of around a hundred vinyl record sized circular artworks and more than a hundred eight second audio loops.

The works are randomly dubbed together and is all made available for others to remix and sample on the project's website. In January 2008, dublab formed a non-profit umbrella corporation Future Roots, Inc; the name comes from their characteristic style of mixing traditional music, such as folk, with electronic sounds. It refers to the paradox that music, really old can sound much like it was made in the present. In that theme, dublab will only be written as either all lowercase or all uppercase by those familiar with the collective. There are other such characteristic writing styles such as a heavy use of alliteration. Forty percent of dublab's funding is raised through a bi-annual, two-week-long live broadcast fundraiser and the other 60% is generated through grants, Underwriting spots and event production, their sound system and DJs have been featured at. They have extended to releasing records such as, they record many Sprout Sessions at their studio in Los Angeles, which are released as an audio RSS feed and Podcast.

These have made their way to record releases such as the Feathers Sprout Session. In August 2008 they released their performance video project called Vision Version, available as an RSS feed, they have music-themed group art shows such as Into Infinity, Dream Scene, Up Our Sleeve, Patchwork. Dublab was founded in 1999 by Jonathan Buck, Mark McNeill and fellow students from KSCR Radio at the University of Southern California.
