Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language

Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language is a World Wide Web Consortium recommended Extensible Markup Language markup language to describe multimedia presentations. It defines markup for timing, animations, visual transitions, media embedding, among other things. SMIL allows presenting media items such as text, video, links to other SMIL presentations, files from multiple web servers. SMIL markup is written in XML, has similarities to HTML; as of 2008, the W3C Recommendation for SMIL is SMIL 3.0. SMIL 1.0 became a W3C Recommendation in June 1999. SMIL 2.0 became a W3C Recommendation in August 2001. SMIL 2.0 introduced a modular language structure that facilitated integration of SMIL semantics into other XML-based languages. Basic animation and timing modules were integrated into Scalable Vector Graphics and the SMIL modules formed a basis for Timed-Text; the modular structure made it possible to define the standard SMIL language profile and the XHTML+SMIL language profile with common syntax and standard semantics.

SMIL 2.1 became a W3C Recommendation in December 2005. SMIL 2.1 includes a small number of extensions based on practical experience gathered using SMIL in the Multimedia Messaging System on mobile phones. SMIL 3.0 became a W3C Recommendation in December 2008. It was first submitted as a W3C Working draft on December 21, 2006; the last draft revision was released on October 6, 2008.

An enhanced Karaoke demo. A SMIL document is similar in structure to an HTML document in that they are divided between an optional <head> section and a required <body> section. The <head> section contains metadata information. The <body> section contains the timing information, is composed of combinations of three main tags—sequential and exclusive. SMIL refers to media objects by URLs, allowing them to be shared between presentations and stored on different servers for load balancing; the language can associate different media objects with different bandwidth requirements. For playback scheduling, SMIL supports ISO-8601 wallclock date/time specification to define begin/end events for playlists.

SMIL files take either a.smi or.smil file extension. However, SAMI files and Macintosh self mounting images use.smi, which creates some ambiguity at first glance. As a result, SMIL files use the.smil file extension to avoid confusion. SMIL is one of three means. While RSS and Atom are web syndication methods, with the former being more popular as a syndication method for podcasts, SMIL is useful as a script or playlist that can tie sequential pieces of multimedia together and can be syndicated through RSS or Atom. In addition, the combination of multimedia-laden.smil files with RSS or Atom syndication would be useful for accessibility to audio-enabled podcasts by the deaf through Timed Text closed captions, can turn multimedia into hypermedia that can be hyperlinked to other linkable audio and video multimedia. VoiceXML can be combined with SMIL to provide a sequential reading of several pre-provided pages or slides in a voice browser, while combining SMIL with MusicXML would allow for the creation of infinitely-recombinable sequences of music sheets.

Combining SMIL+VoiceXML or SMIL+MusicXML with RSS or Atom could be useful i

Trinity College Boat Club

Trinity College Boat Club is the rowing club of Trinity College, Oxford in Oxford, United Kingdom. The club's members are students and staff from Trinity College and associate members from other Colleges; the boat club is based in its boathouse on the Isis, shared with Lady Margaret Hall Boat Club and Linacre College Boat Club. Rowing as an organised inter-collegiate sport became popular in Oxford during the early decades of the nineteenth century, with the first organised bumps races being held at around this time. A Trinity rower in 1831 by the name of James Pycroft detailed how the men within the team would pay for a college boat themselves, would levy a rate upon all members of the college to help pay for it,‘it being considered that the boat and its anticipated victories were for the honour of the college generally’. At the outset of rowing at Trinity in the 1830s, Pycroft records in his memoirs an incident in which a scholar named Thomas Lewin ‘had thoughts of joining the boat, but received a hint that it would not do’.

The reason behind this being that members of the boat club were known to be uproarious and interested in having a good time while they studied! In 1838 Trinity join the records, which can still be seen in the college’s boathouse, moved up three places over the week’s rowing from eighth to fifth. Trinity’s first rowing Blues are both depicted in the earliest known depiction of a Trinity crew, from 1842. John Cox and Edward Breedon both rowed in Oxford’s sixth boat race on the Westminster to Putney course in 1842. Another nineteen years passed with rowing at Trinity growing in its importance within the college, until during the Eights in 1861, Trinity bumped University College, Brasenose College and Balliol College to go Head of the River; the run of great rowing remained until 1865 which marked the beginning of a disastrous few years of racing at Trinity. However, the period at the head was matched with a similar stretch of dominance at the top of Division one, just a few months before the start of World War Two in 1939.

Several of Trinity’s ‘old boys’ rowed at this time and experienced being the best of the Oxford college teams on the Isis. In addition to this, past Trinity crews were involved in many regattas outside of the college including the Henley Royal Regatta, the Thames Regatta.

Nick's World

"Nick's World" is a twelve-page comic book story featured in the second issue of Marvel Knights: Double Shot written by Grant Morrison and drawn by Manuel Gutiérrez. The story concerns a young spy; the story was intended to be a part of a much longer series but after the follow-up series proposal was ignored by Marvel, Morrison incorporated much of the psychedelic super-spy material into his Vertigo title The Filth. It was Morrison's only solo Marvel Knights story; the story was first published in 2002 under the Marvel Knights imprint. It was reprinted in Marvel Crossover #33 and again in 2011 in Fantastic Four: 1234. In Italy, the story has been published in Spider-Man #388; the story begins with a female agent talking about his car needing a new tire. The page gets cut and a new figure is introduced, a man in a strange get up who explains who Nick Fury is and reveals that the scene is just a training exercise with a young spy named Chris Kong, strapped into a machine which makes him experience moments out of Fury's life in an attempt to mimic him so that he can infiltrate S.

H. I. E. L. D. and replace Fury. It is revealed that the man is in the company of some alien-like creatures; the man tells Kong that it is not enough that he is a master of disguise but that he must become like Fury, think and feel like him since S. H. I. E. L. D. has telepaths superior to those. The man reveals that Kong has failed every mission so far in rather embarrassing ways, he lost at the roulette table, accidentally killed a cat instead of its megalomaniac owner and failed the most recent one which they just attempted. Kong tells the man; the man tells him that he lacks some quality that Fury possesses, Kong agrees and says that he must begin his physical transformation into Fury and complies with having one of his eyes amputated. The man states that, now that Kong is wearing Fury's trademark eye-patch, maybe now he will bring more of his fire to the simulation. Kong answers that he tells them to run the machine again; the page cuts back to the scene with the car, where a man in a parachute lands on Kong and the woman and they are dragged into the road, where they are run over by several cyclists.

An upset Kong exclaims that this cannot be happening since he is Nick Fury and that would not happen to him. The man reappears and tells Kong that he is far from being Nick Fury and that he has failed yet again; the story ends with the reveal that Kong's superior is Nick Fury himself and some S. H. I. E. L. D. Agents disassembling the set on which the story has taken place; the story has been described as a cross and double-cross, Steranko-esque spy surrealness, "James Bond meets cosmic 70's Kirby" story. Comic Book Resources called the story the 9th greatest Nick Fury story ever, they stated that the story "Both examines how difficult it is to be Nick Fury while showing the bizarre lengths Nick Fury will go to protect his place in the world." Brian Cronin has stated that the story was a strong look at a theme Morrison explored in the pages of Final Crisis – the notion that there are certain people that you just cannot duplicate, because they are unique individuals. "It's an interesting ode to the coolness of Nick Fury.

Gutierrez does a fine job on the artwork." 2002 in comics The Filth Uncanny X-Men #94 The Amazing Spider-Man #129 Marvel Knights: Double Shot #2 at the Comic Book DB Marvel Knights Double Shot #2 Nicks World... on Comic Vine

Owl Creek Mountains

The Owl Creek Mountains are a subrange of the Rocky Mountains in central Wyoming in the United States, running east to west to form a bridge between the Absaroka Range to the northwest and the Bridger Mountains to the east. The range forms the boundary between the Bighorn Basin to the north and the Shoshone Basin to the south; the Wind River passes through the gap between the range and the Bridger Mountains to the east, becomes the Bighorn River on the north side of the mountains. The high point of the range is 9,665 feet; the range is within the Wind River Indian Reservation. List of mountain ranges in Wyoming

The Beatles: The Collection

The Beatles: The Collection was a vinyl boxed set of every Beatles album remastered at half speed from the original stereo master recordings, except for Magical Mystery Tour, mastered from Capitol Records' submasters with the last three tracks in rechanneled stereo. Released with much anticipation in early October 1982, The Collection was lauded by critics and Beatles fans worldwide for the superb sound, sold-out within the first year. Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab pressed a second run of the Beatles Boxed Set for a total production run of 25,000 over the next two years or until October 1985; each album was pressed on black vinyl by the Victor Company of Japan. The album covers were replaced with photographs of log sheet; the original album covers were included in a booklet which featured a certificate of authenticity as this was a limited edition collection. Missing from this collection were all of the Beatles' singles, extended Play and a few miscellaneous tracks that did not appear on their original UK albums.
