The Wild Thornberrys
The Wild Thornberrys is an American animated television series that aired on Nickelodeon from 1998 to 2004. Following Shout! Factory's acquisition of the title in February 2011, all seasons have been released on DVD, except the 1998 pilot episode; this is Eliza Thornberry, part of your average family. I've got a dad, a mom, a sister. There is Donnie, we found him, and Darwin, he found us. Oh, about our house, it moves. You see, my dad hosts this nature show, my mom shoots it. Okay, so we're not that average, and between you and me, something amazing happened... and now I can talk to animals. It's cool, but secret, and you know what? Life's never been the same; the series focuses around a nomadic family of documentary filmmakers known as the Thornberrys, famous for their televised wildlife studies. It centers on the family's younger daughter Eliza, her secret gift of being able to communicate with animals, bestowed upon her after having rescued a shaman masquerading as a trapped warthog; the gift enabled her to talk to the Thornberrys' pet chimpanzee Darwin.
Together, the pair venture through the wilderness, befriending many species of wild animals along the way or realizing moral truths and lessons through either their experiences or a particular animal species's lifestyle, or assisting the creatures, by which they become acquainted, in their difficulties. Eliza is the younger daughter of the Thornberrys, she has red hair in braids, eyeglasses and freckles. She has four visible teeth connected by two braces, she is able to communicate with animals her chimpanzee sidekick Darwin. She must keep this gift secret or she will lose her powers. Nigel is Eliza's father. Sir Nigel Archibald Thornberry KBE is the son of Radcliffe and Cordelia Thornberry, an aristocratic and English couple. Born in England and having attended Harrow School in London, he travels around the world with his own family making wildlife documentaries, he speaks with a nasally RP English accent. He is eccentric and cheerful in the face of danger, is known for his exaggerated facial features.
He was offered a professorship at Oxford University but, much to his mother's disapproval, Nigel turned it down. He is an expert zoologist, as well as naturalist and survivalist and is quite caring and logical though Nigel otherwise appears absent minded or naive. In the series, Nigel is a supporting character, but in the film Rugrats Go Wild, Nigel plays a much larger role as he is idolized by Tommy Pickles. Nigel gets amnesia and thinks he's a three-year-old after a coconut hit his head, confusing the children. In a bathysphere, Nigel whacks his head, which causes his memory to come back. Marianne is Nigel's wife, thus making her Lady Thornberry, she is the daughter of Sophie Hunter. She mentions that she attended the University of Berkeley. Marianne is a scuba diver like Eliza, she wears a wetsuit, mask and scuba tank with a regulator in Season 3, Episode 17. Donnie is a feral boy, adopted by the Thornberrys. Donald "Donnie" Michael Thornberry is a feral boy, raised by orangutans in Borneo, his real parents were Lisa.
But they were killed after saving two orangutans. This was much to the horror of the orangutan mother and the local villagers, who came to know about their deaths. Out of gratitude and love, the mother orangutan raised him as a son. One day, she came across the Thornberrys and decided to give Donnie to them so he could have a human family, she watched tearfully along with her son. It is revealed that the Thornberrys knew his parents before they adopted him, as they had met while Donnie's parents were on their honeymoon. Donnie wears a pair of leopard-spotted shorts and he loves to eat all types of bugs, he babbles wildly and makes animal-sounds spouting bits of English or exhibiting intermittent signs of sophistication. Donnie is 5, turning 6 in "The Origin of Donnie", it is presumed he does not know what happened to his parents, it is revealed that he was able to pick up sign language from watching his parents teaching it to orangutans. We only see him sign one word, it is unclear how much he knows.
This proves Donnie's intelligence – something which the audience sees further evidence of in a drawing he does of his parents alongside the orangutan family that raised him. Debbie is Eliza's older sister, she becomes the only family member to know about Eliza's powers but is warned that she will be turned into a baboon if she tells anyone. Debbie dresses in grunge clothing and sports a distinctive peekaboo hairstyle. Darwin is a chimpanzee, he wears a tank top with horizontal blue and white stripes and blue shorts. He speaks with a distinct, upper-class, English accent when he is cautious for good reason since Eliza at times tries to foolishly approach and socialize with dangerous animals; the Wild Thornberrys was produced by Klasky Csupo for Nickelodeon.

Tattletales is an American game show that first aired on the CBS daytime schedule on February 18, 1974. It was hosted by Bert Convy, with several announcers including Jack Clark, Gene Wood, Johnny Olson and John Harlan providing the voiceover at various times. Wood was the primary announcer during the show's first run, Olson was announcing during the 1980s; the show's premise involved questions asked about celebrity couples' personal lives and was based on He Said, She Said, a syndicated Goodson-Todman show that aired during the 1969–70 season. Bert Convy was awarded a Daytime Emmy for hosting the show in 1977. Bert Convy and his wife, Anne played the game during the 1970s run, most during weeks in which the panel was made up of other game show hosts and their spouses. Among the hosts who filled in for Convy during these episodes were Gene Rayburn, Bob Barker, Bobby Van, Jack Narz and Richard Dawson. All five hosts participated in playing the game along with other hosts such as Allen Ludden, Bill Cullen and Chuck Woolery.
The show changed its format after its first four months on the air. The second format remained for the rest of the show's run, including its versions. Production for Tattletales was set up at Hollywood's CBS Television City in either Stages 31, 41, 43. In both formats, the show's set consisted of two parts. One was a desk behind; the other was a small seating area in the rear left corner of the stage, used to keep the players not in the game isolated. The game began with the husbands isolated and the wives onstage; when needed, the offstage players would appear on monitors in front of their spouses. The studio audience was divided into three color-coded sections: red and blue, each rooting for one celebrity couple. Audience members in each section divided the money; the couple with the most money at the end of the show won the game, earning their section a $1,000 bonus. In the event of a tie, those sections split the $1,000 bonus. A member of the winning section was randomly drawn to win additional prizes.
Audience members received their winnings in checks distributed. In the first format, Convy asked the players onstage two questions, which started with "It happened at..." or "A story involving..." and Convy completed the question. After each question was read, a player onstage buzzed-in to answer the question; that player gave a one- or two-word clue that the spouse would recognize. Convy repeated the question to the offstage players, appearing on the monitors in front of their spouses, followed by the clue; the offstage player who buzzed in first answered the question, if the couple's answers matched, they won money for their rooting section. A correct answer was worth $100 with a one-word clue, $50 with a two-word clue. Convy asked another question multiple choice, called a "Tattletale Quickie," to each couple in-turn. On their turn, each onstage player answered the question, the spouse appeared and answered the same question. If the answers matched, the team won $100; the players changed places in the second round.
In June 1974, the game dropped the first type of question, questions in the "Tattletale Quickies" format were used for the entire show. The scoring format changed; each question had a pot of $150, split among all couples. If no one matched, the amount of the pot was added to the next question; the husbands were first asked two questions, after which the players changed places prior to the second round. The wives were asked two more questions, with the value of the final question doubled to $300; the guest couples on the premiere episode of Tattletales were Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, Bobby Van and Elaine Joyce, Dick Gautier and Barbara Stuart. Among other celebrities that played the game were Bobby Troup and his wife Julie London, Bill Cullen and his wife Ann, Allen Ludden and his wife Betty White, Orson Bean and his second wife Carolyn Maxwell, Charlie Brill and his wife Mitzi McCall, Scoey Mitchell and his wife Claire Thomas, George Hamilton and his first wife Alana Stewart, Jay Leno and his wife Mavis Leno, Michael J. Fox and his girlfriend Nancy McKeon, John McCook and his second wife Juliet Prowse, Tommy Lasorda and his wife Jo, William Shatner and his second wife Marcy Lafferty, Patti Deutsch and her husband comedy writer Donald Ross, Phyllis Diller and her husband Warde Donovan, James Brolin and his wife Jane Cameron Agee, As the World Turns co-stars Meg Ryan and Frank Runyeon.
Neither version had a hard rule that the celebrity couples were in fact married or romantically involved, although the 1982 version more featured non-romantic couplings than the original run. On a March 1982 broadcast, Linda Blair stated on-air, in response to a question about romantic preferences, that her playing partner for that week, Jim Atcheson, was a close friend rather than a romantic interest. For one week in February 1975, gay comic actor Dick Sargent and lesbian comedian/author Fannie Flagg appeared on the show as a couple. Gay actor and director Charles Nelson Reilly was booked on Tattletales during both CBS runs.
The Emperor's New School
The Emperor's New School is an American animated television series created by Mark Dindal, which aired for two seasons from January 27, 2006 to November 20, 2008. It is a spin-off to the 2000 movie The Emperor's New Groove. In it, Kuzco is required to attend the public high school, Kuzco Academy, before he can become the emperor of the Inca Empire. Yzma, Kuzco's former advisor, disguises herself as the school's principal in an attempt to cause him to fail his classes so she can become empress herself, she receives assistance from her henchman Kronk, Kuzco is aided by his classmate Malina and the villager Pacha and his family. The episodes use a mixture of physical comedy and meta-humor, with Kuzco interrupting a scene to directly address the viewer; the Walt Disney Company developed The Emperor's New School, under the original title Emperor's New Skool, after The Emperor's New Groove received high ratings during syndication. Most of the original cast – Eartha Kitt, Patrick Warburton, Bob Bergen, Wendie Malick – returned for the series, though J. P. Manoux replaced David Spade in the lead role.
Brian Cummings temporarily filled the role for John Goodman. Executive producer Bobs Gannaway had received Dindal's approval and wanted to preserve elements from the film in its television spin-off its art style. Episodes were produced using traditional 2D animation. According to Gannaway, the academic setting and storylines were chosen to explore Kuzco's social ineptitude. Michael Tavera wrote the theme music, though Laura Dickinson and Kitt contributed to the soundtrack. Between January 27 and 29, 2006, The Emperor's New School premiered as part of a three-day promotion on the Disney Channel, ABC Kids, Disney Channel on Demand, Toon Disney, it was the first television series to have a debut across these four platforms. Both seasons are available on the iTunes Store, although individual episodes are unavailable for purchase on any digital platform. Disney and the American Broadcasting Company distributed the series; the Emperor's New School received a mixed response. The show received several nominations.
Kitt won two Annie Awards, while Warburton each received a nomination. Kitt won two Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program, DiCicco received a nomination in the same category; the Emperor's New School follows Kuzco who must graduate from the public high school, Kuzco Academy, to claim his throne as emperor of the Inca Empire. On his birthday, he learns about this educational requirement of his trust fund and is evicted from the palace. At the academy he is shown taking courses on talking to squirrels, herding llamas, "Kuzcology". However, the episodes focus more on Kuzco learning life lessons, including the importance of friendship and hard work; as a student, he lives with the peasant Pacha and his wife Chicha and their children Tipo and Cuti. Despite their strained relationship and contrasting lifestyles, Pacha acts as a father figure for Kuzco, helping him with his school projects. In one episode, he trains Kuzco for a physical education class. Kuzco is supported by his classmate Malina, characterized by her intelligence and popularity.
Malina is one of the few characters. Kuzco has a crush on her and refers to her as a "hottie hot hottie". Kuzco's former royal advisor Yzma disguises herself as the academy's principal, Amzy, to prevent him from graduating, her plans involve turning him into an animal, leaving him unable to finish a school assignment. Her henchman Kronk assists her by posing as Kuzco's friend. Other supporting characters include Mr. Moleguaco; the series is a spin-off of the 2000 movie The Emperor's New Groove and its 2005 direct-to-video sequel Kronk's New Groove. It includes references to the former, including Kronk's spinach puffs, Yzma being flattened by a large object whenever he pulls the lever to the secret lab. Despite being a sequel, Kuzco retains his narcissistic personality seen in the original film. Television critics associated the character with the phrase "it's all about me". Freelance writer David Perlmutter interpreted the series as a prequel. Through a "self-aware" approach, the series employs a combination of physical meta-humor.
Some examples include Kuzco stopping a scene to either make a sarcastic comment or doodle his ideas on ruled paper. Executive producer Bobs Gannaway referred to the show as having "postmodern touches" due to these interactions with the audience. Taking inspiration from the Austin Powers films, the series includes awkward pauses in conversations as part of its comedy. Titled Emperor's New Skool, the Walt Disney Company developed The Emperor's New School as "another heritage property" for its television scheduling. According to Disney Channels' Worldwide president Gary Marsh, the show was commissioned after The Emperor's New Groove attracted high ratings on the Disney Channel and Toon Disney, it was first announced in 2004 for a 2006 release. Mark Dindal, who directed the original film, approved of Bobs Gannaway as executive producer based on their friendship and work together on the 1997 animated film Cats Don't Dance; the Walt Disney Company first approached Gannaway about the series "a few years" after The Emperor's New Groove was released.
He had worked with the company on various spin-offs, including the television programs Timon & Pumbaa and Lilo & Stitch: The Series. These helped establish his reputation as the "go-to guy" for expanding on pre-existing films. Howy Parkins and David Knott ar
International Standard Serial Number
An International Standard Serial Number is an eight-digit serial number used to uniquely identify a serial publication, such as a magazine. The ISSN is helpful in distinguishing between serials with the same title. ISSN are used in ordering, interlibrary loans, other practices in connection with serial literature; the ISSN system was first drafted as an International Organization for Standardization international standard in 1971 and published as ISO 3297 in 1975. ISO subcommittee TC 46/SC 9 is responsible for maintaining the standard; when a serial with the same content is published in more than one media type, a different ISSN is assigned to each media type. For example, many serials are published both in electronic media; the ISSN system refers to these types as electronic ISSN, respectively. Conversely, as defined in ISO 3297:2007, every serial in the ISSN system is assigned a linking ISSN the same as the ISSN assigned to the serial in its first published medium, which links together all ISSNs assigned to the serial in every medium.
The format of the ISSN is an eight digit code, divided by a hyphen into two four-digit numbers. As an integer number, it can be represented by the first seven digits; the last code digit, which may be 0-9 or an X, is a check digit. Formally, the general form of the ISSN code can be expressed as follows: NNNN-NNNC where N is in the set, a digit character, C is in; the ISSN of the journal Hearing Research, for example, is 0378-5955, where the final 5 is the check digit, C=5. To calculate the check digit, the following algorithm may be used: Calculate the sum of the first seven digits of the ISSN multiplied by its position in the number, counting from the right—that is, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, respectively: 0 ⋅ 8 + 3 ⋅ 7 + 7 ⋅ 6 + 8 ⋅ 5 + 5 ⋅ 4 + 9 ⋅ 3 + 5 ⋅ 2 = 0 + 21 + 42 + 40 + 20 + 27 + 10 = 160 The modulus 11 of this sum is calculated. For calculations, an upper case X in the check digit position indicates a check digit of 10. To confirm the check digit, calculate the sum of all eight digits of the ISSN multiplied by its position in the number, counting from the right.
The modulus 11 of the sum must be 0. There is an online ISSN checker. ISSN codes are assigned by a network of ISSN National Centres located at national libraries and coordinated by the ISSN International Centre based in Paris; the International Centre is an intergovernmental organization created in 1974 through an agreement between UNESCO and the French government. The International Centre maintains a database of all ISSNs assigned worldwide, the ISDS Register otherwise known as the ISSN Register. At the end of 2016, the ISSN Register contained records for 1,943,572 items. ISSN and ISBN codes are similar in concept. An ISBN might be assigned for particular issues of a serial, in addition to the ISSN code for the serial as a whole. An ISSN, unlike the ISBN code, is an anonymous identifier associated with a serial title, containing no information as to the publisher or its location. For this reason a new ISSN is assigned to a serial each time it undergoes a major title change. Since the ISSN applies to an entire serial a new identifier, the Serial Item and Contribution Identifier, was built on top of it to allow references to specific volumes, articles, or other identifiable components.
Separate ISSNs are needed for serials in different media. Thus, the print and electronic media versions of a serial need separate ISSNs. A CD-ROM version and a web version of a serial require different ISSNs since two different media are involved. However, the same ISSN can be used for different file formats of the same online serial; this "media-oriented identification" of serials made sense in the 1970s. In the 1990s and onward, with personal computers, better screens, the Web, it makes sense to consider only content, independent of media; this "content-oriented identification" of serials was a repressed demand during a decade, but no ISSN update or initiative occurred. A natural extension for ISSN, the unique-identification of the articles in the serials, was the main demand application. An alternative serials' contents model arrived with the indecs Content Model and its application, the digital object identifier, as ISSN-independent initiative, consolidated in the 2000s. Only in 2007, ISSN-L was defined in the
Los Angeles the City of Los Angeles and known by its initials L. A. is the most populous city in California, the second most populous city in the United States, after New York City, the third most populous city in North America.

Home to the Chumash and Tongva, Los Angeles was claimed by Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo for Spain in 1542 along with the rest of what would become Alta California.
The city was founded on September 4, 1781, by Spanish governor Felipe de Neve. It became a part of Mexico in 1821 following the Mexican War of Independence. In 1848, at the end of the Mexican–American War, Los Angeles and the rest of California were purchased as part of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, becoming part of the United States. Los Angeles was incorporated as a municipality on April 4, 1850, five months before California achieved statehood; the discovery of oil in the 1890s brought rapid growth to the city. The completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct in 1913, delivering water from Eastern California assured the city's continued rapid growth; the Los Angeles coastal area was settled by the Chumash tribes. A Gabrieleño settlement in the area was called iyáangẚ, meaning "poison oak place". Maritime explorer Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo claimed the area of southern California for the Spanish Empire in 1542 while on an official military exploring expedition moving north along the Pacific coast from earlier colonizing bases of New Spain in Central and South America.
Gaspar de Portolà and Franciscan missionary Juan Crespí, reached the present site of Los Angeles on August 2, 1769. In 1771, Franciscan friar Junípero Serra directed the building of the Mission San Gabriel Arcángel, the first mission in the area. On September 4, 1781, a group of forty-four settlers known as "Los Pobladores" founded the pueblo they called El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles,'The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels'; the present-day city has the largest Roman Catholic Archdiocese in the United States. Two-thirds of the Mexican or settlers were mestizo or mulatto, a mixture of African and European ancestry; the settlement remained a small ranch town for decades, but by 1820, the population had increased to about 650 residents. Today, the pueblo is commemorated in the historic district of Los Angeles Pueblo Plaza and Olvera Street, the oldest part of Los Angeles. New Spain achieved its independence from the Spanish Empire in 1821, the pueblo continued as a part of Mexico.
During Mexican rule, Governor Pío Pico made Los Angeles Alta California's regional capital. Mexican rule ended during the Mexican–American War: Americans took control from the Californios after a series of battles, culminating with the signing of the Treaty of Cahuenga on January 13, 1847. Railroads arrived with the completion of the transcontinental Southern Pacific line to Los Angeles in 1876 and the Santa Fe Railroad in 1885. Petroleum was discovered in the city and surrounding area in 1892, by 1923, the discoveries had helped California become the country's largest oil producer, accounting for about one-quarter of the world's petroleum output. By 1900, the population had grown to more than 102,000; the completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct in 1913, under the supervision of William Mulholland, assured the continued growth of the city. Due to clauses in the city's charter that prevented the City of Los Angeles from selling or providing water from the aqueduct to any area outside its borders, many adjacent city and communities became compelled to annex themselves into Los Angeles.
Los Angeles created the first municipal zoning ordinance in the United States. On September 14, 1908, the Los Angeles City Council promulgated residential and industrial land use zones; the new ordinance established three residential zones of a single type, where industrial uses were
