"Le Freak" is a song by American R&B band Chic. It was R&B number-one song. Along with the tracks "I Want Your Love" and "Chic Cheer", "Le Freak" scored number one on the disco charts for seven weeks; the single achieved sales of 7 million and scored number seven in the UK Singles Chart. Billboard magazine ranked it as the number 3 song for 1979; the song was ranked number 21 on Billboard magazine's top 100 songs of the first 55 years of the "Hot 100" chart. In 2018, it was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally or artistically significant." Part of the lyrics mention "Stompin' at the Savoy", referencing a song of the same name composed by Edgar Sampson. They invite the listener to "Come on down to 54", a reference to Studio 54, a popular nightclub in New York City at that time; this song commemorates Studio 54 for its notoriously long customer waiting lines, exclusive clientele, discourteous doormen. According to guitarist Nile Rodgers, the song was devised during New Year's Eve of 1977, as a result of his and bassist Bernard Edwards' being refused entrance to Studio 54, where they had been invited by Grace Jones, due to her failure to notify the nightclub's staff.
He said the lyrics of the refrain were "Fuck off!" Rather than "Freak out!". MC Lyte sampled the song "Woo Woo" featuring Brownstone's Nicci Gilbert, which first appeared on the soundtrack to the 1998 movie Woo and appeared on her album Seven & Seven, titled "Woo Woo" which released three months later; this record remained until 2008, when three different songs, "Bleeding Love" by Leona Lewis, "Whatever You Like" by T. I. and his follow-up single featuring Rihanna all achieved this feat. Bruno Mars managed this in 2011 with "Grenade", as did The Weeknd with his 2015 single "Can't Feel My Face". On July 14, 2018, Drake surpassed all of these singles when his hit "Nice For What" reached the pole position four separate times. In 1987, an acid house-styled re-mix was issued under the title "Jack Le Freak", it reached number 18 in the United Kingdom. In 2010, "Le Freak" was covered by the electronica band Millionaires for the MTV movie Turn the Beat Around; the bass line from the song was used by American industrial rock group My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult for their track, "Waiting for Mommie" on the Confessions of a Knife... album, released in 1990 by Wax Trax!
Records. The song is used in the films Heavy Weights, The Last Days of Disco, Mystery Men, 102 Dalmatians, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, Shrek 2, It's Pat!, Son of the Mask, Roll Bounce, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Furry Vengeance, Toy Story 3, Super 8, Think Like a Man Too. The song was used in the second episode of the second season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars as a "Lip Sync For Your Legacy" song, it was performed by contestants Alaska and Katya, each seeking to win $10,000 and the power to eliminate a competitor. Le Freak shares melody and backing rhythm with the 2014 worldwide hit Uptown Funk recorded by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars; the song appears in a 2016 TV commercial for Walmart.

Food extrusion is a form of extrusion used in food processing. It is a process by which a set of mixed ingredients are forced through an opening in a perforated plate or die with a design specific to the food, are cut into a specific size by blades; the machine which forces the mix through the die is an extruder, the mix is known as the extrudate. The extruder consists of a large, rotating screw fitting within a stationary barrel, at the end of, the die. Extrusion enables mass production of food via a continuous, efficient system that ensures uniformity of the final product. Food products manufactured using extrusion have a high starch content; these include some pasta, many breakfast cereals and ready-to-eat snacks, pre-made cookie dough, some baby foods, full-fat soy, textured vegetable protein, some beverages, dry and semi-moist pet foods. In the extrusion process, raw materials are first ground to the correct particle size the consistency of coarse flour; the dry mix is passed through a pre-conditioner, in which other ingredients are added depending on the target product.
Steam is injected to start the cooking process, the preconditioned mix is passed through an extruder. The extruder consists of a large, rotating screw fitting within a stationary barrel, at the end of, the die; the extruder's rotating screw forces the extrudate toward the die, through which it passes. The amount of time the extrudate is in the extruder is the residence time; the extruded product puffs and changes texture as it is extruded because of the reduction of forces and release of moisture and heat. The extent to which it does so is known as the expansion ratio; the extrudate is cut to the desired length by blades at the output of the extruder, which rotate about the die openings at a specific speed. The product is cooled and dried, becoming rigid while maintaining porosity; the cooking process takes place within the extruder where the product produces its own friction and heat due to the pressure generated. The process can induce both protein starch gelatinization under some conditions.
Many food extrusion processes involve a high temperature over a short time. Important factors of the extrusion process are the composition of the extrudate, screw length and rotating speed, barrel temperature and moisture, die shape, rotating speed of the blades; these are controlled based on the desired product to ensure uniformity of the output. Moisture is the most important of these factors, affects the mix viscosity, acting to plasticize the extrudate. Increasing moisture will decrease viscosity and product temperature, increase bulk density; this will reduce the pressure at the die. Most extrusion processes for food processing maintain a moisture level below 40%, low to intermediate moisture. High-moisture extrusion is known as wet extrusion, but it was not used much before the introduction of twin screw extruders, which have a more efficient conveying capability; the most important rheological factor in the wet extrusion of high-starch extrudate is temperature. The amount of salt in the extrudate may determine the texture of some extruded products.
The expansion ratio and airiness of the product depend on the salt concentration in the extrudate as a result of a chemical reaction between the salt and the starches in the extrudate. Colour changes as a result of salt concentration may be caused by "the ability of salt to change the water activity of the extrudate and thus change the rate of browning reactions". Salt is used to distribute minor ingredients, such as food colours and flavours, after extrusion; the first extruder was designed to manufacture sausages in the 1870s. Packaged dry pasta and breakfast cereals have been produced via extrusion since the 1930s, the method was applied to pet food production since the 1950s, it has been incorporated into kitchen appliances, such as meat grinders, herb grinders, coffee grinders, some types of pasta makers. A similar functional process occurs. Extrusion enables mass production of food via a continuous, efficient system that ensures uniformity of the final product; this is achieved by controlling various aspects of the extrusion process.
It has enabled the production of new processed food products and "revolutionized many conventional snack manufacturing processes". The extrusion process results in "chemical reactions that occur within the extruder barrel and at the die". Extrusion has the following effects: Destruction of certain occurring toxins Reduction of microorganisms in the final product Slight increase of iron-bioavailability Creation of insulin-desensitizing starches Loss of lysine, an essential amino acid necessary for developmental growth and nitrogen management Simplification of complex starches, increasing rates of tooth decay Increase of glycemic index of the processed food, as the "extrusion process increased the availability of carbohydrates for digestion" Destruction of Vitamin A Denaturation of proteins; the material of which an extrusion die is made can affect the final product. Compared to stainless steel dies, a pasta machine with bronze dies; this is considered to give an improved taste. "Bronze die" pasta is labelled as such on retail packages, to indicate a
Wotsits is a British brand of cheesy flavour corn puffs sold by Walkers Crisps and by Golden Wonder. The most common form are cheese flavoured curly shapes. However, over the years, various other shapes and flavours have been sold. "Limited edition" Wotsits have appeared on more than one occasion. The brand was stretched into Whopping Wotsits, Weenie Wotsits, Wotsits Wafflers as well as frozen Wotsits. All came into the market under Golden Wonder's ownership managed by Nigel Parrott between the years 1993 and 2002; the brand name occurs in the singular, "Wotsit". It is an allusion to the slang term "whatsit". Wotsits packaging come with a joke or trivia section on the back; the brand was the first to introduce inserts into its packs in 1994, with the insertion of "Pogs". It inserted merlin football stickers and other inserts aimed at 11-year-old boys; the brand was advertised with the strapline "you only get a whoosh with a Wotsit" between 1994 and 2002 following a campaign designed by JWT of a play on words.
Another variety of Wotsits were "Mealtime Potato Shapes", made from potato and cheese and meant to be baked in the oven. They were discontinued. In 2002, Golden Wonder sold off Wotsits to Walkers. Prior to this, Walkers sold the similar American product Cheetos, considered a rival in the UK market. Walkers relaunched Cheetos in the UK in 2015 and both brands are sold together. Under Walkers the brand was relaunched in the flavours it was sold in during the Golden Wonder era but the other brands were discontinued. Wotsits were one of the sponsors of SMTV Live from 4 January 2003 until the show's discontinuation on 27 December 2003. In 2003, the advertising agency Abbott Mead Vickers made a public apology when the Parliamentary Select Committee on Health brought to light a private brief that it had made to Frito-Lay where it proposed encouraging children to believe that "Wotsits are for me—I'm going to buy them when I get the chance and pester Mum for them when she next goes shopping". In 2005, Walkers launched Wotsits Twisted in BBQ and Really Cheesy flavours, which contained twists of corn.
They didn't end up being successful and vanished after a few months on the shelves. In the same year a Flamin' Hot flavour replaced BBQ Beef in the main packs. In 2007, Walkers changed the packaging for all their snack products, which were Quavers, Squares, French Fries and Monster Munch; this packaging reflected the usage of Sunseed Oil, used in all products. The Multipack bags were in a different layout. In 2008 Wotsits were changed from being fried to baked instead. In 2009, Quavers and French Fries changed packaging again to show they have 100 Calories or less. Wotsits had 99 calories in standard bags at the time. In 2012 the Walkers logo was re-added again and the brand has been sold in Really Cheesy flavour. A limited edition version Zombie Fingers was put on sale for Halloween in 2013 and has returned at following Halloweens; these are longer and curlier than normal Wotsits.

Chic called Nile Rodgers & Chic, is an American band, organized during 1976 by guitarist Nile Rodgers and bassist Bernard Edwards. It recorded many commercially successful disco songs, including "Dance, Dance", "Everybody Dance", "Le Freak", "I Want Your Love", "Good Times", "My Forbidden Lover"; the group regarded themselves as a rock band for the disco movement "that made good on hippie peace and freedom". In 2017, Chic was nominated for induction into the Roll Hall of Fame for the eleventh time. Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards met during 1970, as fellow session musicians working in the New York City area, they formed a rock band named The Boys and The Big Apple Band, playing numerous gigs around New York City. Despite interest in their demos, they never got a record contract, they were in the band New York City, which had a hit record in 1973 with "I'm Doing Fine Now", charting in the UK. The original demo tapes were made by DJ/studio engineer Robert Drake, who first played lacquer records while DJing at a New York after hours club, Night Owl.
New York City broke up in 1976. After Walter Murphy released the single and album "A Fifth of Beethoven" under the name Walter Murphy and the Big Apple Band, they changed their name to Chic. Inspired after attending a concert by English glam rock band Roxy Music, Rodgers began developing the idea for a group whose music and image would form a seamless and immersive whole, taking additional influence from the anonymous, make-up wearing American rock band Kiss. During 1977, Edwards and Rodgers recruited drummer Tony Thompson with Labelle and Ecstasy, Passion & Pain, to join the band. Thompson recommended keyboardist Raymond Jones, 19, to join the band, as he had worked with him in Ecstasy, Passion & Pain. Needing a singer to become a full band, they engaged Norma Jean Wright by an agreement permitting her to have a solo career in addition to her work for the band. Using a young recording engineer Bob Clearmountain, they created the track "Dance, Dance"; as a result, Chic became a support act. The title of the first song recorded as Chic was "Everybody Dance,", on their first album.
Under contract with Atlantic Records company, during 1977 they released the self-titled debut album Chic, an extension of the demonstration tape. But Edwards and Rodgers were convinced that to produce the band's recording studio sound when performing live with sound and visuals, they needed to add another female singer. Wright suggested her friend Luci Martin, who became a member during late winter/early spring of 1978. Soon after the sessions ended for the debut album, the band members began to work on Wright's self-titled debut solo album Norma Jean, released during 1978; this album included the successful nightclub song "Saturday". To facilitate Wright's solo career, the band had agreed to contract her with a separate record company; the legal details of this contract forced Wright to end her relationship with the band during mid-1978, but she participated in the sessions for Chic-produced Sister Sledge album We Are Family. She was replaced as a singer by Alfa Anderson, who had done back-up vocals on the band's debut album.
For the Sister Sledge project and Rodgers wrote and produced "He's the Greatest Dancer", in exchange for "I Want Your Love". The group endeavored to express "deep hidden meaning" in every song. During late 1978, the band released the album C'est Chic, containing one of its better-known tracks, "Le Freak", it was created in a jam session in Edwards' apartment, after they had failed on New Year's Eve 1977 to meet with Grace Jones at New York's nightclub Studio 54. The original refrain "Aaa, fuck off", intended for the doormen of Studio 54, was replaced that night with "Aaa, freak out", after trying a version with "Aaa, freak off"; the resulting single was a great success, scoring No. 1 on the US charts and selling more than six million copies. It was the best-selling single album of Atlantic's parent company, Warner Music, until Madonna's "Vogue" in 1990. On March 21, 2018 "Le Freak" was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally or artistically significant".
The next year, the group released the Risqué album and the lead track "Good Times", one of the most influential songs of the era. The track was the basis of Grandmaster Flash's "Adventures on the Wheels of Steel" and the Sugarhill Gang's breakthrough hip hop music single "Rapper's Delight", it has been sampled since by many dance and hip hop acts, as well as being the inspiration for Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust", Blondie's "Rapture", Captain Sensible's "Wot?" and, two decades the bass line for Daft Punk’s "Around the World". At the same time and Rodgers composed, arranged and produced many influential disco and R&B records for various artists, including Sister Sledge's albums We Are Family and Love Somebody Today. Devotion's "Spacer". An album recorded with Johnny Mathis remains unreleased. Chic introduced a young session vocalist, Luther Vandross, who sang on Chic's early albums. After the anti-disco reaction at the end of the 1970s, the band struggled to obtain both airplay and sales, during the early 1980s they

NikNaks (South African snack)
NikNaks known as "amaNikNaks," is the brand name for a popular brand of South African Cheese puffs manufactured by the Simba Chips company since 1972. Only coming in a "Cheese" flavour. It's sold in 55 gram and 150 gram bags, and is made from maize, vegetable oil and cheese. Though based in South Africa and consumed in the Southern African region, NikNaks are consumed internationally due to South Africa's diaspora; the brand features the brand mascot, Nik the Nak, on a yellow packet with different coloured diamonds arranged in a circular pattern depending on the flavour. Green for fruit chutney, brown for spicy beef, pink for cheese. In the 2000s the image of the brand mascot was altered due to concerns over the racially prejudicial nature of the original image featuring a stylised Kaapse Klopse minstrel; the mascot was "introduced as a middle-aged comic-like character has since evolved into a funkier more youthful male, symbolising elements of youth culture."The new and final branding was finalised in 2010 when a design from the advertising agency Graffiti by Mzwandile Buthelezi was chosen after members of the public voted it the best of 3 possible new options.
In 2014 British importers of South African Niknaks were issued with legal letters informing them not to import the snacks into the country as they infringed on the brand name of the older, 1941-established British brand Nik Naks manufactured by KP Snacks. NikNaks come in four different flavours. Original Cheese – the brand's original flavour in a yellow and pink packet. Spicy Beef – launched on the brand's 40th anniversary in October 2013 in a yellow and brown packet. Fruit Chutney – in a yellow and green packet. Spicy Tomato – in a yellow and red packet launched in 2010. Sweet Chili and Cheese – in a blue packet. Chilli Cheese – in a yellow and red packet launched in November 2015
Alien is a 1979 science-fiction horror film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Dan O'Bannon. Based on a story by O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett, it follows the crew of the commercial space tug Nostromo who encounter the eponymous Alien, a deadly and aggressive extraterrestrial set loose on the ship; the film stars Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm, Yaphet Kotto. It was produced by Gordon Carroll, David Giler and Walter Hill through their company Brandywine Productions, was distributed by 20th Century Fox. Giler and Hill made additions to the script; the Alien and its accompanying artifacts were designed by the Swiss artist H. R. Giger, while concept artists Ron Cobb and Chris Foss designed the more human settings. Alien was released on September 6 in the United Kingdom, it was met with critical acclaim and box office success, winning the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, three Saturn Awards, a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, along with numerous other nominations.
It has been praised in the years since its release, is considered one of the greatest films of all time. In 2002, Alien was deemed "culturally or aesthetically significant" by the Library of Congress and was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. In 2008, it was ranked by the American Film Institute as the seventh-best film in the science fiction genre, as the thirty-third greatest film of all time by Empire magazine; the success of Alien spawned a media franchise of films, comic books, video games, toys. It launched Weaver's acting career, providing her with her first lead role; the story of her character's encounters with the Alien creatures became the thematic and narrative core of the sequels Aliens, Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection. A crossover with the Predator franchise produced the Alien vs. Predator films, which includes Alien vs. Predator and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem. A prequel series includes Alien: Covenant; the commercial space tug Nostromo is on a return trip to Earth with a seven-member crew in stasis, Captain Dallas, Executive Officer Kane, Warrant Officer Ripley, Navigator Lambert, Science Officer Ash and two Engineers and Brett.
Detecting a transmission from nearby moon LV-426, the ship's computer, awakens the crew. Company policy requires any potential distress signal be investigated, so they land on the moon, sustaining damage from its atmosphere and rocky landscape. Parker and Brett repair the ship while Dallas and Lambert head out to investigate, they discover the signal comes from a derelict alien ship and enter it, losing communication with the Nostromo. Ripley deciphers part of the transmission, determining it to be a warning, but cannot relay this information to those on the derelict ship. Meanwhile, Kane discovers a chamber containing hundreds of large egg-like objects; when he touches one, a creature springs out, breaks through his helmet, attaches itself to his face. Dallas and Lambert carry the unconscious Kane back to the Nostromo; as acting senior officer, Ripley refuses to let them aboard, citing quarantine regulations, but Ash overrides her decision and lets them inside. Ash attempts to remove the creature from Kane's face but stops when he discovers that its blood is an corrosive acid.
It detaches on its own and is found dead. The ship is repaired, the crew lifts off. Kane is otherwise unharmed. During a final crew meal before returning to stasis, he convulses. A small alien creature bursts from Kane's chest, killing him, escapes into the ship; the crew attempts to locate it with tracking devices and capture or kill it with nets, electric prods and flamethrowers. Brett follows the crew's cat Jones into a huge supply room, where the now fully-grown alien attacks and disappears with his body. After heated discussion, the crew decide. Dallas enters the ducts, intending to force the alien into an airlock, but it ambushes and kills him. Lambert implores the others to escape in its small shuttle. Now in command, Ripley explains it will not support four people and pursues the plan of flushing out the alien. Now with access to Mother, Ripley discovers Ash has been secretly ordered by the company to bring the alien back, with the crew deemed expendable, she confronts Ash. Parker intervenes and clubs Ash, revealing him to be an android.
Ash's head is reactivated, they learn he was assigned to ensure the creature's survival. He expresses admiration for the creature's psychology, unhindered by conscience or morality, taunts them about their chances of survival. Ripley cuts off his power; the remaining crew decides to escape in the shuttle. Parker and Lambert are killed by the creature. Ripley initiates the self-destruct sequence, but finds the alien blocking her path to the shuttle, she attempts unsuccessfully to abort the self-destruct. With no further options, she makes her way to the shuttle and escapes as the Nostromo explodes; as Ripley prepares for stasis, she discovers that the alien is aboard, having wedged itself into a narrow space. She uses gas to flush the creature out, it approaches Ripley, but be
