After the war he returned to Quincy, marrying Anna Fisher in 1868, he began studying architecture under Robert Bunce, relocating to Denver, Colorado in 1873 and practicing as Robert S. Roeschlaub. In 1903, his son Frank joined the practice and the firm was renamed Roeschlaub & Son, which continued until Robert's retirement in 1912.

He designed numerous schools, college buildings and residences and commercial buildings. He was one of three curators at the Colorado Historical Society and worked on improving Denver's building code, he was elected to the American Institute of Architects in 1889 and the College of Fellows of the AIA elevated Roeschlaub to Fellow in 1900. He was President of AIA Colorado from 1892 to 1912. In 1909 when the architect's licensing law was passed, Roeschlaub was given license Number One. Denver commercial buildings he is credited with designing include the King Block, Bancroft Block, Times Building, Union Block, Barth Block, A. T. Lewis & Son Dept. Store and the I. F. Williams Store. Only the Lewis Department Store and the Hover Drug Co. Buildings remain; the Lewis Department Store, though listed in the National Register, is considered significant for its historic rather than architectural association. The Hover is the best surviving example of a commercial structure designed by Roeschlaub. Other National Historic Landmark registered Roeschlaub buildings include the Central City Opera House, Trinity United Methodist Church, Corona School, Chamberlin Observatory at the University of Denver, Cheyenne County Jail now a museum, the Hover Mansion and the First Congregational Church.

Kung Pow! Enter the Fist

Kung Pow! Enter the Fist is a 2002 American martial arts comedy film that parodies Hong Kong action cinema. Written, directed by and starring Steve Oedekerk, it uses footage from the 1976 Hong Kong martial arts film Tiger & Crane Fists, along with new footage shot by Oedekerk, to create an original, unrelated plot; the film was a moderate box office success, grossing $17 million worldwide, received negative critical reviews but has since become a cult film. A sequel, to be written and directed by Oedekerk, was announced in 2015. A man, called The Chosen One by the narrator, wanders from town to town to search for the man who killed his family and tried to kill him when he was a baby. In one town, he meets Master Tang, a ill and deranged sifu, asks Tang to help him improve his impressive martial arts ability. Master Tang is skeptical at first, but after seeing The Chosen One's mark, he allows him to train at his dojo; the Chosen One is introduced to two other students: Wimp Lo, a young man, deliberately trained incorrectly as a joke, Ling, who has romantic feelings for him.

While training, The Chosen One shows cartoon-like feats of strength, Wimp Lo deems him an enemy out of jealousy. Upon learning that Master Pain, the man who killed his parents, has just arrived in town, The Chosen One prepares to confront him. Master Pain demonstrates his skills, he lets his henchmen hit him with Bo staffs all over his body and groin subdues them all in one move. Impressed by Master Pain's skills, the town's mayor hires him, Master Pain randomly changes his name to Betty; the Chosen One attempts to train himself by letting people hit him with bow staffs all over his body and in the groin, but is knocked out after being hit. When he wakes up, a mysterious woman named. After flirtily fighting The Chosen One, Whoa flies off into the sky. Ignoring the advice, The Chosen One sets off to find Betty, he comes across one of Betty's evil companions: Moo Nieu, a Holstein cow gifted in karate, with a large udder that can squirt milk as a weapon. The Chosen One incapacitates Moo Nieu by milking her until her udder is empty.

He confronts him. Master Doe, Ling's Father, shows up and tries to stop the unprepared Chosen One, is wounded by Betty; the Chosen One takes Master Doe to Master Tang. However, as Tang massages Doe's wound, it does not close and Doe dies that night. Out of depression, Ling confesses her feelings for The Chosen One. Confused, The Chosen One consults the heavens for confidence. Mu-Shu Fasa, a large sentient lion, appears in the sky and dispenses advice in a scene parodying a portion of The Lion King, he returns to town and finds that Betty's hostility has expanded to the entire town, they are killing anyone who may be his allies. He finds Wimp Lo, Master Tang and his dog maimed. However, except for Lo, they all survive. After taking Ling and his dog to safety, The Chosen One begins training himself. Discovering Betty's weak points are the pyramid spikes embedded in his chest, The Chosen One makes wooden dummies, embeds similar spikes onto their chests and attempts to pluck them out with his bare hands.

His hands are battered and he is exhausted, but after Ling treats his wounds and gives an inspiring speech, he finds himself rejuvenated and pulls off the attack. Meanwhile, Betty learns that The Chosen One is alive; the Chosen One confronts Betty at the temple. They fight evenly, until the Evil Council shows up revealing themselves to be French aliens, gives Betty supernatural powers. Betty viciously beats up The Chosen One, who, in a semi-unconscious state, sees visions of Whoa and Mu-Shu Fasa giving him advice. Mu-Shu instructs him to open his mouth; as soon as he does, Tonguey flies out and attacks and destroys the mother ship, causing the entire Evil Council armada to panic and retreat, leaving Betty vulnerable. The Chosen One rips the pyramid spikes out of Betty's chest, killing him; as The Chosen One returns home with Ling, his tribulations are far from over, as presented in a trailer for a sequel, Kung Pow 2: Tongue of Fury, that follows the final scene. In a post-credits scene, Master Tang, left behind, asks someone to help him from a hungry golden eagle eating his leg.

Oedekerk re-dubbed all of the original cast's voices himself, inventing a different voice for every character; the only exception is the character of "Whoa", voiced by her actress, Jennifer Tung. During filming of their scenes and Tung spoke nonsensical lines, which were re-dubbed with the correct lines from the script, in order to maintain the appearance of poorly-dubbed foreign language consistent with the rest of the film.

The school offers a French Immersion program. Ajax High School was given a 5.5 rating in 2012/13 and ranked 478th out of 740 schools across Ontario. The school has since undergone several large expansions. In the 1960s, a large section that today houses the main office, front entrance, courtyard, as well as several classrooms, was added. In the early 2000s, a wing was added to the east side of the building. Many of these classrooms are now devoted to science courses. In recent years, many students have expressed a desire to change the team mascot from the "Rams" to the "Battleships", in honour of the World War II vessel that the town was named after.

It is spoken in northwestern Datian County, southwestern Youxi County, several townships in Yong'an City and Sha County in the center of Fujian Province. In Youxi County, it is known as the Xinqiao dialect, it mixes several Min languages nearby such as Northern Min, Central Min, Eastern Min, Hokkien. The main area where Houlu is spoken is northern Datian including Guangping, Qitao and Meishan, covering 22.45% of the population of Datian. The variety spoken in Guangping can be regarded as the representative. Although Houlu includes some features of Min Zhong and other Min languages, it is still not mutually intelligible with other Min Nan dialects. In the Houlu dialect, there are 41 rimes and 7 tones.

Thermal relief

A thermal relief pad, thermal pad or thermal, is a printed circuit board pad connected to a copper pour using a thermal connection. It looks like a normal pad with copper "spokes" connecting it to the surrounding copper. A typical pad on a printed circuit board is only connected to a few narrow tracks. A pad directly connected to the copper pour is difficult to solder, since the heat leaks away from the pad into the copper pour due to high thermal conductivity of copper. A thermal connection restricts the heat flow. Via holes that only connect one layer to another, without having soldering wires or pins into the hole, do not need thermal restriction. Wire-leaded components may require the thermal relief pattern to be customized or omitted when carrying radio-frequency currents, or where high current densities are expected. In these cases the parts may require additional hand soldering during assembly. Copper pour Heat trap Thermal barrier "Section 9.1.3: Thermal Relief in Conductor Planes".
