Road to Morocco

Road to Morocco is a 1942 American comedy film starring Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour, featuring Anthony Quinn and Dona Drake. The film, written by Frank Butler and Don Hartman and directed by David Butler for Paramount Pictures, is the third of the "Road to …" films, it was followed by Road to Utopia. The story is about two fast-talking guys castaway on a desert shore and sold into slavery to a beautiful princess; the setting is in Morocco. The film opens with a freighter at sea news announcements; the cause of the explosion is a mystery, with all crew accounted for with the exception of two unidentified stowaways. Jeff Peters and Orville'Turkey' Jackson are seen floating at sea aboard a pile of wreckage, it was Jeff's idea to stow away, but it was Orville'smoking in the powder room' that caused the explosion. As the two joke about eating one another to survive, they spot land in the distance; as they sit on the beach, Orville reminds Jeff of his promise to Aunt Lucy. Jeff reminds him.

They are interrupted by a convenient camel, they hitch a ride. Once in the city, they are nearly run over by Arabs shooting guns, led by the sheik Mullay Kasim. Jeff and Orville learn. Orville is approached by a group of bearers carrying someone in a veiled box. A beautiful hand takes his and leaves, with Orville in pure bliss. In a restaurant and Orville eat heartily, while trying to figure out how to get past the knife-wielding owner without paying. A man hands over a great deal of money. Orville is happy to be able to pay for the meal. Orville is furious since neither of them know why the man bought him. Jeff tells Orville he'll buy him back, eventually. A week Jeff is woken by a vision of Aunt Lucy who shames him for his act. Jeff says he learned he was re-sold to someone else. Aunt Lucy tells him he has to find Orville, recommends singing Orville's favorite song. Jeff walks through the street singing, until a note, with Orville's locket is tossed at him from the palace window; the note, written by Orville, warns Jeff of danger.

Jeff, scales the palace wall. Hearing a woman singing, Jeff sneaks into the palace and see a lot of beautiful girls dancing for the beautiful Princess Shalmar and singing to a relaxed Orville. Jeff is grabbed by guards. Orville feigns ignorance and tries to send him away; the princess dismisses everyone, except for Jeff. Orville admits the truth, he says he and the princess are to be married. Jeff is surprised, she was the one that passed Orville in the veiled box, the one that purchased him. As she plants a passionate kiss on Orville, Jeff decides to stick around; as Orville is waited on by beautiful girls, he learns from one of them, the princess was supposed to marry Kasim, but tells Orville she loves him too. Jeff confronts Orville, who has Jeff thrown out. Jeff wanders the palace singing, an act that attracts the princess and they go on a moonlit walk. Mihirmah tries to get Orville to run away with her. Jeff tries to tell the princess that HE was the one sold and should be marrying her, but he is interrupted by a sword-wielding Orville.

The next morning an angry Kasim confronts Princess Shalmar for marrying someone else. He is prepared to kill Orville but the princess takes him to the wise man Hyder Kahn. Hyder Khan said he had read the stars and found that Princess Shalmar's first husband is destined to die a violent death within a week of the marriage, the second husband would be blessed with long life and happiness; the princess tells Kasim that Orville is the first husband, when he dies, she'll marry Kasim and they will live in happiness. Kasim understands and embraces the princess. Orville finds out about the prophecy and runs to Jeff and convinces him that the princess loves him and he's going to run off with Mihirmah; that night, Orville is visited and shamed by Aunt Lucy's spirit, but Orville refuses to tell Jeff the truth. Meanwhile, the wise man realizes that he had been misreading the stars due to fireflies in his telescope. Princess Shalmar refuses to marry Jeff though Orville is eager to get out of the marriage; the princess sends Orville away to get ready for the wedding.

The wise man tells the princess and Jeff of the incorrect prophecy. The princess is happy and tells Jeff now she can marry him and not Kasim. Jeff realizes why Orville decides not to tell him. Instead he says the princess changed her mind, Orville is only too eager to accept. Meanwhile, the wise man's assistant tells Kasim; the Princess and Jeff decide to get married in the U. S. accompanied by Orville and Mihirmah but they are confronted by Kasim, who takes the princess and gives Mihirmah to one of his men. Jeff and Orville try to use their ` patty-cake' routine on Kasim, they are found and captured. Kasim takes the women and strands Jeff and Orville i

HotJava

HotJava was a modular, extensible web browser from Sun Microsystems implemented in Java. It was the first browser to support Java applets, was Sun's demonstration platform for the then-new technology, it is no longer supported. Furthermore, the Sun Download Center was taken down on July 31, 2011, the download link on the official site points to a placeholder page saying so. In 1994, a team of Java developers started writing WebRunner, a clone of the internet browser Mosaic, it was based on the Java programming language. The name ‘WebRunner’ was a tribute to the Blade Runner movie. WebRunner's first public demonstration was given by John Gage and James Gosling at the Technology Entertainment Design Conference in Monterey, California in 1995. Renamed HotJava, it was announced in May the same year at the SunWorld conference; the parser code was reused by the standard Java libraries. HotJava had somewhat limited functionality compared to other browsers of its time. More critically, HotJava suffered from the inherent performance limitations of Java Virtual Machine implementations of the day and hence was sluggish.

Susquehanna Community School District

Susquehanna Community is a third-class school district in Susquehanna and Wayne Counties in Pennsylvania. The district's population was 5,195 at the time of the 2010 United States Census; the district covers 101 square miles. According to federal census data, its population has decreased by 299 residents from 5,494 residents in 2000; the district students are 1 % Asian, 1 % black and 1 % Hispanic. According to District officials, in the school year 2007–08, the Susquehanna Community School District provided basic educational services to 963 pupils through the employment of 82 teachers, 51 full-time and part-time support personnel, 6 administrators; the district operates one combined junior-senior high school. The district is divided into three regions, which include the following municipalities: Susquehanna Depot Borough Lanesboro Borough Oakland Borough Oakland Township Ararat Township Harmony Township Starucca Borough Thompson Borough Thompson Township The school district is governed by 9 individually elected board members, the Pennsylvania State Board of Education, the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Pennsylvania General Assembly.

The federal government controls programs it funds like Title I funding for low-income children in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the No Child Left Behind Act, which mandates the district focus resources on student success in acquiring reading and math skills. The Commonwealth Foundation for Public Policy Alternatives Sunshine Review gave the school board and district administration a "D-" for transparency based on a review of "What information can people find on their school district's website", it examined the school district's website for information regarding. Susquehanna Community School District was ranked 253rd out of 498 Pennsylvania school districts in 2012 by the Pittsburgh Business Times; the ranking was based on student academic performance based on the PSSAs for: reading, writing and two years of science. 2011 - 241st 2010 - 236th 2009 – 266th 2008 – 276th 2007 – 256th out of 501 Pennsylvania school districts. In 2012, the Pittsburgh Business Times reported an Overachievers Ranking for 498 Pennsylvania school districts.

Susquehanna Community School District ranked 24th. In 2011 the district was 7th; the editor describes the ranking as: "a ranking answers the question - which school districts do better than expectations based upon economics? This rank takes the Honor Roll rank and adds the percentage of students in the district eligible for free and reduced-price lunch into the formula. A district finishing high on this rank is smashing expectations, any district above the median point is exceeding expectations."In 2009, the academic achievement, of the students in the Susquehanna Community School District, was in the 60th percentile among all 500 Pennsylvania school districts Scale In 2011 the graduation rate of Susquehanna Community School District was 93%. In 2010, the Pennsylvania Department of Education issued a 4-year cohort graduation rate. Susquehanna Community High School's rate was 88% for 2010. According to traditional graduation rate calculations: 2010 – 91% 2009 – 93% 2008 – 96% 2007 – 96% Susquehanna Community Junior Senior High School is located at 3192 Turnpike Street, Susquehanna.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, in 2010, the school reported an enrollment of 371 pupils in grades 7th through 12th, with 180 pupils eligible for a federal free or reduced-price lunch. The school employed 31 teachers, yielding a student–teacher ratio of 12:1.

Goncarzewy

Goncarzewy is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Sicienko, within Bydgoszcz County, Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship, in north-central Poland. It lies 4 kilometres west of 20 km north-west of Bydgoszcz. Since 1288 Samsieczno and adjacent areas belonged to the Cistercian monks of Byszewo, although the village itself is not named in the monastery documents in 1386; the village was a retreat of Gunter of Bronikowa, a descendant of the Sorbian noble family Pradel, who arrived in the fourteenth century. The first record of the name of the village appears in district court records of Nakło nad Notecią dated 4 August 1453, naming Jan de Guncerzewy. From the start the site was "connected" with Samsieczno and its buildings were developed on the plan ulicówki. Since the beginning the village was owned by nobles who were under an obligation to participate in military expeditions. Since the mid-fifteenth century the village was property of the Guncerzewskich family. In 1578 the village belonged to the family of Turzyńskich Szczutowskich.

In the mid-seventeenth century, the village was taken over by the family Działyński. At the end of the seventeenth century, the heir was Michael Lord of Chełm. At the beginning of the eighteenth century, the lands in the village go to the family Potuliccy; the last heiress of the village is Angela Constance Countess Alexander Potulicka. On 20 October 1932 the village board passes under the "Potulicka Foundation", created by Angela Potulicka Potuliccy. During World War II the village was part of the Reichsgau Danzig-Westpreußen. After World War II, the assets of the Foundation Potulicka land was nationalized and became part of the village Agricultural Combine in Wojnowo. Since 1990 the rural goods have been administered by the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, as legal heirs to the "Potulicka Foundation". Margarete Himmler, wife of Heinrich Himmler The name of the village comes from the Sorbian name for Gunter, its is phonetically similar to Gunczerz. The original name of the village Gunczerzewy has evolved over the years.

Since the mid-fifteenth century to the partitions the name was recorded as: Guncerzewy, Gunczerzewy, Gunczarzewy, Gącarzewy, Guncerzowy, Gunczerzewy. In the Grand Duchy of Posen there were two variations of the name: Gońcarzewy in Polish, Goncerzewo in German; the Polish version Goncarzewy, in force, first appeared in 1926. Teki Dworzaczka.

Hairy cell leukemia

Hairy cell leukemia is an uncommon hematological malignancy characterized by an accumulation of abnormal B lymphocytes. It is classified as a sub-type of chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Hairy cell leukemia makes up 2% of all leukemias, with fewer than 2,000 new cases diagnosed annually in North America and Western Europe combined. Hairy cell leukemia was described as histiocytic leukemia, malignant reticulosis, or lymphoid myelofibrosis in publications dating back to the 1920s; the disease was formally named leukemic reticuloendotheliosis and its characterization advanced by Bertha Bouroncle and colleagues at The Ohio State University College of Medicine in 1958. Its common name, coined in 1966, is derived from the "hairy" appearance of the malignant B cells under a microscope. In hairy cell leukemia, the "hairy cells" accumulate in the bone marrow, interfering with the production of normal white blood cells, red blood cells, platelets. Patients may develop infections related to low white blood cell count and fatigue due to a lack of red blood cells, or easy bleeding due to a low platelet count.

Leukemic cells may cause it to swell. Hairy cell leukemia is diagnosed after a routine blood count shows unexpectedly low numbers of one or more kinds of normal blood cells, or after unexplained bruises or recurrent infections in an otherwise healthy patient. Platelet function may be somewhat impaired in HCL patients, although this does not appear to have any significant practical effect, it may result in somewhat more mild bruises than would otherwise be expected for a given platelet count or a mildly increased bleeding time for a minor cut. It is the result of producing abnormal platelets in the overstressed bone marrow tissue. Patients with a high tumor burden may have somewhat reduced levels of cholesterol in patients with an enlarged spleen. Cholesterol levels return to more normal values with successful treatment of HCL; as with many cancers, the cause of hairy cell leukemia is unknown. Exposure to tobacco smoke, ionizing radiation, or industrial chemicals does not appear to increase the risk of developing HCL.

Farming and gardening correlate with an increased risk of HCL development in some studies which does not imply causation. Recent studies have identified somatic BRAF V600E mutations in all patients with the classic form of hairy cell leukemia thus sequenced, but in no patients with the variant form; the U. S. Institute of Medicine sees a correlation which permits an association between exposure to herbicides and development of chronic B-cell leukemias and lymphomas in general; the IOM report emphasizes that neither animal nor human studies indicate an association of herbicides with HCL specifically. However, the IOM extrapolated data from chronic lymphocytic leukemia and non-Hodgkin lymphoma to conclude that HCL and other rare B-cell neoplasms may share this risk factor; as a result of the IOM report, the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs considers HCL an illness presumed to be a service-related disability. Human T-lymphotropic virus 2 has been isolated in a small number of patients with the variant form of HCL.

In the 1980s, HTLV-2 was identified in a patient with a T-cell lymphoproliferative disease. There is no evidence that HTLV-II causes any sort of hematological malignancy, including HCL. Pancytopenia in HCL is caused by marrow failure and splenomegaly. Bone marrow failure is caused by the accumulation of hairy cells and reticulin fibrosis in the bone marrow, as well as by the detrimental effects of dysregulated cytokine production. Splenomegaly reduces blood counts through sequestration and destruction of healthy blood cells inside the spleen. Hairy cells are nearly mature B cells, which are activated clonal cells with signs of VH gene differentiation, they may be related to pre-plasma marginal zone B cells or memory cells. Cytokine production is disturbed in HCL. Hairy cells thrive on TNF-alpha; this cytokine suppresses normal production of healthy blood cells in the bone marrow. Unlike healthy B cells, hairy cells express and secrete an immune system protein called Interleukin-2 receptor. In HCL-V, only part of this receptor is expressed.

As a result, disease status can be monitored by measuring changes in the amount of IL-2R in the blood serum. The level increases as hairy cells proliferate, decreases when they are killed. Although uncommonly used in North America and northern Europe, this test correlates better with disease status and predicts relapse more than any other test. Hairy cells respond to normal production of some cytokines by T cells with increased growth. Treatment with Interferon-alpha suppresses the production of this pro-growth cytokine from T cells. A low level of T cells, seen after treatment with cladribine or pentostatin, the consequent reduction of these cytokines, is associated with reduced levels of hairy cells. In June 2011, E Tiacci et al discovered that 100% of hairy-cell leukaemia samples analysed had the oncogenic BRAF mutation V600E, proposed that this is the disease's driver mutation; until this point, only a few genomic imbalances had been found in the hairy cells, such as trisomy 5 had been found.

The expression of genes is dysregulated in a complex and specific pattern. The cells under express 3p24, 3p21, 3q13.3-q22, 4p16, 11q23
