The TT-30 is a Russian semi-automatic pistol. It was developed in the early 1930s by Fedor Tokarev as a service pistol for the Soviet military to replace the Nagant M1895 revolver, in use since Tsarist times, though it ended up being used in conjunction with rather than replacing the M1895, it served until 1952. In 1930, the Revolutionary Military Council approved a resolution to test new small arms to replace its aging Nagant M1895 revolvers. During these tests, on 7 January 1931, the potential of a pistol designed by Fedor Tokarev was noted. A few weeks 1,000 TT-30s were ordered for troop trials, the pistol was adopted for service in the Red Army; the TT-30 was manufactured with about 93,000 being produced. But as the TT-30 was being put into production, design changes were made to simplify manufacturing. Minor changes to the barrel, disconnector and frame were implemented, the most notable ones being the omission of the removable hammer assembly and changes to the full-circumference locking lugs.
This redesigned pistol was the TT-33. Most TT-33s were issued to commanding officers; the TT-33 was used by Soviet troops during World War II, but did not replace the Nagant. Externally, the TT-33 is similar to John Browning's blowback operated FN Model 1903 semiautomatic pistol, internally it uses Browning's short recoil tilting-barrel system from the M1911 pistol. In other areas the TT-33 differs more from Browning's designs — it employs a much simpler hammer/sear assembly than the M1911; this assembly is removable from the pistol as a modular unit and includes machined magazine feed lips preventing misfeeds when a damaged magazine was loaded into the magazine well. Soviet engineers made several alterations to make the mechanism easier to produce and maintain, most notably the simplifications of the barrel's locking lugs, allowing fewer machining steps; some models use a captive recoil spring secured to the guide rod which does depend on the barrel bushing to hold it under tension. The TT-33 is chambered for the 7.62×25mm Tokarev cartridge, itself based on the similar 7.63×25mm Mauser cartridge used in the Mauser C96 pistol.
The 7.62×25mm cartridge is powerful, has an flat trajectory, is capable of penetrating thick clothing and soft body armor. Able to withstand tremendous abuse, large numbers of the TT-33 were produced during World War II and well into the 1950s. In modern times the robust TT-33 has been converted to many powerful cartridges including.38 Super and 9×23mm Winchester. The TT-33 omitted a safety catch other than the half cock notch which rendered the trigger inoperable until the hammer was pulled back to full cock and lowered manually to the half cock position. Many imported variants have manual safeties added, which vary in placement and function; the Wehrmacht captured a fair number of TT-33s and issued them to units under the Pistole 615 designation. This was made possible by the fact that Russian 7.62 mm Model 1930 Type P cartridges were nearly identical to the German 7.63×25mm Mauser cartridge. Therefore, German ammunition could be used in captured Russian arms, but not vice versa. Due to much higher pressures, the Russian cartridges should never be used in the German Mauser pistols.
Such use could be dangerous. Interarms marketed World War II-surplus Russian-made Tokarevs in Europe and the United States as the Phoenix, they had new wooden grips with a phoenix design on them and were overstamped INTERARMS on the barrel. Gun laws banned their sale due to their lack of a safety. In 1949 a silenced variant was produced. Uniquely, the silencer is attached to the barrel bushing rather than the barrel itself; the combined weight of the suppressor with the slide prevents semi-auto cycling of the action, forcing the user to manually cycle it in the same manner as pump action firearms. It would be replaced by the PB pistol in 1967; the TT-33 was replaced by the 8-round, 9×18mm Makarov PM pistol in 1952. Production of the TT-33 in Russia ended in 1954, but copies were made by other countries. At one time or another most communist or Soviet bloc countries made a variation of the TT-33 pistol; the TT pistol was copied in China as the Type 51, Type 54, M20, TU-90. Norinco, the People's Liberation Army's state armaments manufacturer in China, manufactured a commercial variant of the Tokarev pistol chambered in the more common 9×19mm Parabellum round, known as the Tokarev Model 213, as well as in the original 7.62×25mm caliber.
The 9mm model features a safety catch, absent on Russian-produced TT-33 handguns. Furthermore, the Model 213 features the thin slide grip grooves, as opposed to the original Russian wide-types; the 9mm model is featured with a magazine well block mounted in the rear of the magazine well to accept 9mm type magazines without frame modification. The Norinco model in current production is not available for sale in the United States due to import prohibitions on Chinese firearms, although older handguns of the Model 213 type imported in the 1980s and 1990s are common. 7.62×25mm ammo is rather inexpensive and locally produced or imported from China made by Norinco. Hungary rebarreled the TT to fire 9×19mm Parabellum as the M48, as well as an export version for Egypt known as the Tokagypt 58, used by police forces there. Tokagypts differ from the original Tokarevs by an external safety leve

S. stock market crash. When confronted, Atwood admits to be working for Senator McComb, who needs the funds for his upcoming presidential campaign. Fearing that McComb will erase him from history, Atwood attempts to jump to his death, but Walker catches him mid-leap and returns to 2004. Refusing to testify, Atwood is sentenced to execution and is returned to 1929 where he resumes falling to his death. Walker is assigned a new partner, TEC rookie Sarah Fielding, together they are sent back to 1994 to investigate McComb, they witness a meeting between young McComb and his business partner Jack Parker, where McComb wishes to withdraw over a disagreement about a new computer chip.

Fielding turns on Walker, revealing that she works for McComb, after a shootout with McComb's henchmen, Fielding is wounded and Walker escapes back to 2004. Walker returns to the TEC to find the future altered. McComb is now sole owner of the computer company and is a presidential front runner while the TEC is being shut down due to budget cuts. Walker appeals to Matuzak. Matuzak sends Walker back to the past in a prototype time machine, sacrificing himself in the process. Back in 1994, Walker finds Fielding in the hospital and after interrogation she agrees to testify against McComb, though she is murdered in her room shortly thereafter. While at the hospital, Walker finds a record of a recent visit by his wife Melissa, discovering that she was pregnant.
Realizing that she would be killed that night, he tracks her down and reveals himself to be from the future. That night, the younger Walker returns home and is attacked just as before, with the assailants revealed to be in McComb's employ, but is unknowingly aided by his older self, lying in wait. With the assailants defeated, the older McComb steps in and takes Melissa hostage, confronting the older Walker with the bomb. McComb reveals that he sent the assassins back to kill the younger Walker, though he will die in the ensuing explosion, his younger self will survive and become President with Walker gone. Walker, reveals that he had lured the younger McComb to the house, who enters the room. After McComb wounds Melissa, Walker pushes the two McCombs together and, as the same matter cannot occupy the same space, they merge into a liquefied mass before disappearing from existence forever. Walker escapes with Melissa before the bomb explodes and lays her down beside his unconscious younger self before returning to the future.
Back in 2004, Walker finds. Matuzak and Fielding are active in the TEC, whereas McComb no longer exists. Walker returns home to find Melissa alive and waiting for him with their young son.

D'Artagnan is taken in by family friend Planchet, a former musketeer, one of the loyal protectors of King Louis XIII. Fourteen years the grown d'Artagnan finds on his arrival in Paris that the musketeers have been disbanded by order of Cardinal Richelieu, usurping the king's authority with the help of Febre. Richelieu is trying to foment hostility between France and Spain to gain more political power for himself.

Knowing he has lost control of his chief henchman, he secretly visits d'Artagnan and tells him of Febre's plans and pleads for his help to stop Febre. D'Artagnan agrees but only. D'Artagnan returns to Paris and convinces the surviving musketeers that their responsibility to the Crown remains their highest priority, they join him at the castle where the Queen and Lord Buckingham are being held.

Military police are law enforcement agencies connected with, or part of, the military of a state. In different countries it may refer to: A section of the military responsible for policing the areas of responsibility of the armed forces against all criminal activity by military or civilian personnel A section of the military responsible for policing in both the armed forces and in the civilian population A section of the military responsible for policing the civilian population The preventive police forces of each Brazilian state, responsible for policing the civilian population, which become auxiliary forces of the Brazilian ArmyThe status of military police is prominently displayed on the helmet and/or on an armband, brassard, or arm or shoulder flash. In the Second World War, the military police of the German Army still used a metal gorget as an emblem. Naval police members are sometimes shore patrol. "Military police" is a law enforcement agency which follows the Brazilian military rules, responsible for Preventive police of the civilian population.
Each state has its own Military Police department similar to a Gendarmerie. Traditional Provost duties are held by different corps within each branch of the Brazilian Armed Forces: Army Police for the Army, Navy Police for the Navy, Air Force Police for the Air Force; the Canadian Forces Military Police contribute to the effectiveness and readiness of the Canadian Forces and the Department of National Defence through the provision of professional police and operational support services worldwide. CFMP are classified as Peace Officers in the Criminal Code, which gives them the same powers as civilian law enforcement personnel to enforce Acts of Parliament on or in relation to DND property or assets anywhere in the world, they have the power to arrest anyone, subject to the Code of Service Discipline, regardless of position or rank under the National Defence Act. MP have the power to arrest and charge non-CSD bound civilians only in cases where a crime is committed on or in relation to DND property or assets, or at the request of the Minister of Public Safety, Commissioner of the Correctional Service of Canada or Commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Although MP jurisdiction is only on DND property across Canada and throughout the world, any civilian accessing these areas falls under MP jurisdiction and are dealt with in the same manner as any civilian policing agency. If a crime is committed on or in relation to DND property or assets, MP have the power to arrest and charge the offender, military or civilian, under the Criminal Code, it is important to note though that the purpose of the CFMP is not to replace the job of a civilian police officer, but rather to support the Canadian Forces through security and policing services. MP have the power to enforce the Provincial Highway Traffic Acts on all military bases in Canada pursuant to the Government Property Traffic Regulations. In Colombia, MPs are common, they can be seen guarding closed roads, embassies, government buildings and airports. In the National Army of Colombia they are assigned to the 37 Military Police Battalions, wearing green uniforms with the military police helmet. A Naval Police battalion is in service in the Colombian Marine Infantry.
MP units provide military bands and drum and bugle corps for ceremonial events. Each branch of the Armed Forces of the United States maintains its own police force; the U. S. Coast Guard, which in itself is a law enforcement agency, uses a mixture of enlisted rates and ranks qualified as law enforcement officers to patrol, investigate crimes, enforce laws and regulations on large bases and training centers through the United States Coast Guard Police; the Coast Guard uses the Coast Guard Investigative Service, a mixture of civilian, enlisted and officers who are qualified and duly sworn federal law enforcement officers separate from the normal Coast Guard chain of command. CGIS investigates and charges those in its own population with serious crimes, such as rape, assault or forgery, that fall under the Uniform Code of Military Justice; the following is a list of military police forces: Military Police Corps/Office of the Provost Marshal General—United States Army Provost Marshal's Office and Law Enforcement Battalions —United States Marine Corps Masters-at-Arms or MAs are enlisted Sailors of the U.
S. Navy, designated as Naval Security Force responsible for law enforcement and force protection. NSF personnel are led by Naval commissioned officers from the Limited Duty Officer and Chief Warrant Officer communities, who are designated as NSF. Additionally, a host installation's Security Force are augmented by Sailors on Temporary Assignment of Duty from their parent units, as part of the Auxiliary Security Force. Shore Patrol personnel are Sailors from U. S. naval vessels visiting foreign ports assigned to the Shore Patrol Party or Beach Guard, responsible for the good order and discipline of Sailors from the visiting ship on liberty. Sailors assigned to the Shore Patrol Party or Beach Guard Detachment do not include Sailors assigned to the ship's Security Force, both performing different duties while visiting that country, because of the Status of Force Agreement and/or Rules of Engagem
2010: The Year We Make Contact
2010: The Year We Make Contact is a 1984 science fiction film written and directed by Peter Hyams. It is a sequel to Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey, is based on Arthur C. Clarke's sequel novel 2010: Odyssey Two; the film stars Roy Scheider, Helen Mirren, Bob Balaban and John Lithgow, along with Keir Dullea and Douglas Rain of the cast of the previous film. It is nine years after the mysterious failure of the Discovery One mission to Jupiter in 2001, which resulted in the deaths of four astronauts and the disappearance of David Bowman. While an international dispute causes tension between the United States and the Soviet Union, both nations prepare space missions to determine what happened to the Discovery; the US government agrees to a joint mission when it is determined that Discovery will crash into Jupiter's moon Io before Discovery Two is ready. Floyd, along with Discovery designer Walter Curnow and HAL 9000's creator Dr. Chandra, joins the Soviet mission. Upon arriving at Jupiter, the crew detect signs of life on Jupiter's barren moon Europa.
They send an unmanned probe down to Europa to investigate the unusual readings, but just as it finds the source, a mysterious energy burst destroys the probe and its data. The "burst" flies toward Jupiter; the Soviets believe the burst was electrostatic build-up, but Floyd suspects it was a warning to stay away from Europa. After surviving a dangerous braking maneuver around Jupiter's upper atmosphere, the Leonov crew find the abandoned Discovery floating in space. Curnow reactivates the ship and Chandra restarts HAL, deactivated by Bowman before he disappeared. Nearby is the giant alien Monolith that the Discovery was sent to investigate. Cosmonaut Max Brailovsky travels to the Monolith in an EVA pod, at which point the Monolith opens with a burst of energy, sending Max's pod spinning off into space. On Earth, Dave Bowman, now an incorporeal being that exists inside the Monolith, appears on his wife's television screen to tell her goodbye, visits his terminally ill mother just before she dies.
Aboard the Discovery, Chandra discovers the reason for HAL's malfunction: The National Security Council had ordered HAL to conceal from the Discovery's crew the fact that the mission was about the Monolith. Although the order bears his signature, Floyd angrily denies any knowledge of the NSC's actions. Back on Earth, when tension between the United States and the Soviet Union escalates to war, the Americans are ordered to leave the Leonov and move to the Discovery, with communication with each other forbidden except in an emergency. Both crews plan to leave Jupiter separately when a launch window opens in several weeks' time, but Bowman appears to Floyd and says it is paramount that everyone leave within two days. Stunned by Bowman's appearance, Floyd returns to the Leonov to confer with Captain Tanya Kirbuk, who remains skeptical; the Monolith suddenly disappears, a growing black spot appears on Jupiter itself. The spot is a vast group of Monoliths that are exponentially multiplying; the Monoliths begin shrinking Jupiter's volume, increasing the planet's density, modifying its chemical composition.
This convinces the two crews. Since neither ship could reach Earth with an early departure, they work together using the Discovery as a booster rocket for the Leonov, though it will mean the Discovery's and HAL's destruction. Uninformed about the true purpose of the operation, HAL suggests to Chandra to stop the launch and remain to study Jupiter's conversion; when Chandra tells HAL the truth, he willingly continues the countdown to save the humans. The Monoliths engulf Jupiter, causing nuclear fusion that transforms the planet into a small star; the Discovery is consumed in the blast. Just before the Discovery is engulfed, Bowman's voice is heard once again as he speaks to HAL and tells him that they will soon be together after he transmits a message to Earth: The star's miraculous appearance inspires American and Soviet leaders to seek peace. Europa transforms from an icy wasteland to a humid jungle covered with plant life. A Monolith stands in the primeval Europan swamp. Arthur C. Clarke appears as a man on a park bench outside the White House.
In addition, a Time magazine cover about the American–Soviet tension is shown, in which the President of the United States is portrayed by Clarke and the Soviet Premier by the 2001 writer and director, Stanley Kubrick. When Clarke published his novel 2010: Odyssey Two in 1982, he telephoned Stanley Kubrick, jokingly said, "Your job is to stop anybody making it so I won't be bothered." Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer subsequently worked out a contract to make a film adaptation, but Kubrick had no interest in directing it. However, Peter Hyams was interested and contacted both Clarke and Kubrick for their blessings: I had a long conversation with Stanley and told him what was going on. If it met with his approval, I would do the film.
