World English Bible
The World English Bible is a free updated revision of the American Standard Version. It is one of the few public domain, present-day English translations of the entire Bible, it is distributed to the public using electronic formats; the Bible was created by volunteers using the ASV as the base text as part of the ebible.org project through Rainbow Missions, Inc. a Colorado nonprofit corporation. The World English Bible claims to be one of the few English-language Bibles custom translated to be understood by most English-speakers worldwide, eliminating the need for data-processing based or computer operating system-specific internationalizations. Work on the World English Bible began in 1997 and it was first known as the American Standard Version 1997; the World English Bible project was started in order to produce a modern English Bible version, not copyrighted, does not use archaic English, is not translated into Basic English. The World English Bible follows the American Standard Version's decision to transliterate the Tetragrammaton, but uses "Yahweh" instead of "Jehovah" throughout the Old Testament.
The British and Messianic editions as well as the Apocryphal books and New Testament use the traditional forms. The translation includes the following Apocryphal books: Tobit Judith Additions to Esther Wisdom Ecclesiasticus Baruch Epistle of Jeremy Prayer of Azarias Susanna Bel and the Dragon I Maccabees II Maccabees 1 Esdras Prayer of Manasses Psalm 151 III Maccabees IV Maccabees 2 Esdras The work is based on the 1901 American Standard Version English translation, the Greek Majority Text, the Hebrew Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia with some minor adjustments made because of alternate readings found in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Septuagint; these alternate readings are ignored or restricted to the footnotes. The translation process included seven passes of proofreading for each book. An initial automated pass updated 1,000 archaic words and grammatical constructs; the first manual pass added quotation marks and other punctuation and compared the translation to the Greek and Hebrew texts in areas where significant textual variants or meanings were unclear.
Evangelical site GotQuestions.org praised the WEB for being "a modern and public domain English translation of the Bible" while criticising the translation's sentence structure as "not always in the most natural-sounding and free-flowing English". The site suggests the lack of physical print copies has made the translation difficult for widespread adoption by Christian communities; the Provident Planning web site uses the World English Bible because it is free of copyright restrictions and because the author considers it to be a good translation. The Bible Megasite review of the World English Bible says it is a good revision of the American Standard Version of 1901 into modern English, which corrects some textual issues with the ASV; the World English Bible is published in digital formats by a variety of publishers.

The Web (film)
The Web is a 1947 American film noir crime film directed by Michael Gordon and starring Ella Raines, Edmond O'Brien, William Bendix and Vincent Price. Leopold Kroner of Colby Enterprises, is released after five years in prison for embezzlement. Andrew Colby, claiming that Kroner has threatened him, hires lawyer Bob Regan as a personal bodyguard; that evening, Regan hears a gunshot from Colby's study and finds Kroner there trying to kill Colby. Regan kills Kroner. Regan believes Colby's explanation that Kroner had become delusional and threatening, until Regan's police buddy Damico lets on that he's suspicious that Regan murdered Kroner. Kroner's daughter Martha Kroner tries, but fails, to murder him, she reveals that Colby had invited Kroner to the house that Kroner was of sound mind. Regan investigates further, getting information about Kroner's embezzlement case from a reporter and Colby's secretary, Noel. Regan has a friend impersonate one of Colby's associates on the phone to deceive him into providing information about the embezzlement, unknowing that this associate is long dead.
Colby uses this situation to his advantage to set a trap for Noel. He innocently asks Noel to remove money from his safe after she leaves, he kills his associate Charles with a weapon having Regan's fingerprints; the two of them are framed for theft and murder, but Lt. Damico tricks Colby into thinking Charles is still alive. Since Charles would reveal all of Colby's actions, that night Colby tries to sneak down and strangle Charles, only to be caught red-handed. Ella Raines as Noel Faraday Edmond O'Brien as Bob Regan William Bendix as Lt. Damico Vincent Price as Andrew Colby Maria Palmer as Martha Kroner John Abbott as Charles Murdock Fritz Leiber as Leopold Kroner Howland Chamberlain as James Timothy Nolan Tito Vuolo as Emilio Canepa Wilton Graff as District Attorney Robin Raymond as Newspaper Librarian When the film was released The New York Times film critic gave the film a negative review, writing, "Ella Raines and Edmond O'Brien, as the lawyer, play their stock roles with competence, William Bendix plays the lieutenant with a suggestion of, shall we say, retarded intellectual attainment.
But he's not nearly as dumb. The Web is not nearly as good as it might have been."In 2011, film critic Dennis Schwartz gave the film a positive review, writing, "Top-of-the-line B film crime drama. A great cast digs into this film noir with relish. Director Michael Gordon keeps things topped off with zesty mustard. Writers Bertram Millhauser and William Bowers keep the story by Harry Kurnitz free of any dull moments; the pic has the following things going for it: William Bendix is superb playing a smart cop against type, a sassy Ella Raines smoothly swinging her hips is good for the eyes and ears, a slimy Vincent Price as the sinister villain makes your blood boil in an entertaining way, a seen as slim Edmund O'Brien is oafishly prancing around as the good guy lawyer of the people and makes for a likable hero."

World Wide Web
The World Wide Web known as the Web, is an information space where documents and other web resources are identified by Uniform Resource Locators, which may be interlinked by hypertext, are accessible over the Internet. The resources of the WWW may be accessed by users by a software application called a web browser. English scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989, he wrote the first web browser in 1990 while employed at CERN near Switzerland. The browser was released outside CERN in 1991, first to other research institutions starting in January 1991 and to the general public in August 1991; the World Wide Web has been central to the development of the Information Age and is the primary tool billions of people use to interact on the Internet. Web resources may be any type of downloaded media, but web pages are hypertext media that have been formatted in Hypertext Markup Language; such formatting allows for embedded hyperlinks that contain URLs and permit users to navigate to other web resources.
In addition to text, web pages may contain images, video and software components that are rendered in the user's web browser as coherent pages of multimedia content. Multiple web resources with a common theme, a common domain name, or both, make up a website. Websites are stored in computers that are running a program called a web server that responds to requests made over the Internet from web browsers running on a user's computer. Website content can be provided by a publisher, or interactively where users contribute content or the content depends upon the users or their actions. Websites may be provided for a myriad of informative, commercial, governmental, or non-governmental reasons. Tim Berners-Lee's vision of a global hyperlinked information system became a possibility by the second half of the 1980s. By 1985, the global Internet began to proliferate in Europe and the Domain Name System came into being. In 1988 the first direct IP connection between Europe and North America was made and Berners-Lee began to discuss the possibility of a web-like system at CERN.
While working at CERN, Berners-Lee became frustrated with the inefficiencies and difficulties posed by finding information stored on different computers. On March 12, 1989, he submitted a memorandum, titled "Information Management: A Proposal", to the management at CERN for a system called "Mesh" that referenced ENQUIRE, a database and software project he had built in 1980, which used the term "web" and described a more elaborate information management system based on links embedded as text: "Imagine the references in this document all being associated with the network address of the thing to which they referred, so that while reading this document, you could skip to them with a click of the mouse." Such a system, he explained, could be referred to using one of the existing meanings of the word hypertext, a term that he says was coined in the 1950s. There is no reason, the proposal continues, why such hypertext links could not encompass multimedia documents including graphics and video, so that Berners-Lee goes on to use the term hypermedia.
With help from his colleague and fellow hypertext enthusiast Robert Cailliau he published a more formal proposal on 12 November 1990 to build a "Hypertext project" called "WorldWideWeb" as a "web" of "hypertext documents" to be viewed by "browsers" using a client–server architecture. At this point HTML and HTTP had been in development for about two months and the first Web server was about a month from completing its first successful test; this proposal estimated that a read-only web would be developed within three months and that it would take six months to achieve "the creation of new links and new material by readers, authorship becomes universal" as well as "the automatic notification of a reader when new material of interest to him/her has become available". While the read-only goal was met, accessible authorship of web content took longer to mature, with the wiki concept, WebDAV, Web 2.0 and RSS/Atom. The proposal was modelled after the SGML reader Dynatext by Electronic Book Technology, a spin-off from the Institute for Research in Information and Scholarship at Brown University.
The Dynatext system, licensed by CERN, was a key player in the extension of SGML ISO 8879:1986 to Hypermedia within HyTime, but it was considered too expensive and had an inappropriate licensing policy for use in the general high energy physics community, namely a fee for each document and each document alteration. A NeXT Computer was used by Berners-Lee as the world's first web server and to write the first web browser, WorldWideWeb, in 1990. By Christmas 1990, Berners-Lee had built all the tools necessary for a working Web: the first web browser and the first web server; the first web site, which described the project itself, was published on 20 December 1990. The first web page may be lost, but Paul Jones of UNC-Chapel Hill in North Carolina announced in May 2013 that Berners-Lee gave him what he says is the oldest known web page during a 1991 visit to UNC. Jones stored it on his NeXT computer. On 6 August 1991, Berners-Lee published a short summary of the World Wide Web project on the newsgroup alt.hypertext.
This date is sometimes confused with the public availability of the first web servers, which had occurred months earlier. As another example of such confusion, several news media reported that the first photo on the Web was published by Berners-Lee in 1992, an image of the CERN house band Les Horribles Cernettes taken by Silvano de Gennaro.
Script for a Jester's Tear
Script for a Jester's Tear is the debut studio album by British neo-progressive rock band Marillion, released in the United Kingdom on 13 March 1983 by EMI Records. The album reached number seven and spent 31 weeks in the UK Albums Chart achieving a platinum certificate, produced the Top 40 single "He Knows You Know" and the Top 20 single "Garden Party". Script for a Jester's Tear is the only studio album by Marillion to feature the band's original drummer and founding member Mick Pointer, dismissed following the album's UK tour. In Martin Popoff's 2016 biography of Yes, the album is credited with being part of a "new wave" of British progressive rock which helped to give a second life to earlier bands. Marillion released their first single, "Market Square Heroes", on 25 October 1982, it was a minor hit. It was produced by David Hitchcock, contracted to work on the group's first full-length album. However, he was injured in a car accident when he drove home after completing work on the single.
EMI took advantage of the opportunity and persuaded the group to replace him with Nick Tauber, a producer known for his work with new wave band Toyah and regarded by the record label as more modern. Neither "Market Square Heroes", nor the B-sides of the 12" single, "Three Boats Down from the Candy" and the 17-minute-long epic "Grendel", were included on Script for a Jester's Tear, although a short radio segment of the A-side can be heard prior to "Forgotten Sons"; as stated in the original liner notes, the music from the album was composed and performed by Marillion and the lyrics were written by Fish alone. However, in the 1997 remastered edition, four out of six songs are additionally credited to bass player Diz Minnett and keyboard player Brian Jellyman, who were both the initial members of the group; the recording sessions for the album started in December 1982 at The Marquee Studios in London and finished in February 1983, with Tauber producing and Simon Hanhart engineering. The cover artwork was designed by Mark Wilkinson, who would be commissioned to the role on all Marillion releases through The Thieving Magpie.
Script for a Jester's Tear was released in the United Kingdom on 13 March 1983 by EMI on vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve. In the United States, it was available through Capitol Records. Dave Dickson in his review for Kerrang! said that "as a debut album this is impressive living up to the band's previous promise". John Franck has given the album a retrospective rating of four-and-a-half stars out of five on AllMusic, he has called it "a vital piece for any Marillion head and an essential work for any self-respecting first- or second-generation prog rock fan". Script for a Jester's Tear was a commercial success, reaching number 7 in the United Kingdom and spending 31 weeks on the charts, the second-longest album chart residency for Marillion, it was awarded a platinum certification by British Phonographic Industry on 5 December 1997 for over 300,000 copies sold. In the United States, however, it failed to make any impact, peaking at number 175 on the Billboard 200 chart; the album generated two hit singles in the United Kingdom.
The first single, "He Knows You Know", preceded the release of Script for a Jester's Tear and launched the group into the Top 40, reaching number 35. The second single, "Garden Party", was released on 6 June 1983 and became more popular, peaking at number 16. "He Knows You Know" gained some airplay in the United States and reached number 21 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart. Script for a Jester's Tear was first released on CD in 1985; as part of a series of Marillion eight studio albums made on a contract with EMI, the album was 24-bit digitally remastered between April and July 1997 and expanded with a second disc containing bonus tracks, including all tracks from the debut single. This edition has been in print to date; the remastered version was issued without the second disc in 2000 and contained a pared-down booklet. A new 180g heavy weight vinyl edition featuring a gatefold sleeve and the original artwork was released in 2012. All writing credits are adapted from the 1997 remastered edition.
According to the liner notes of the original version, the whole group is listed as writers and performers, all lyrics are credited to Fish. Fish – vocals Steve Rothery – guitars.
Web is a science fiction novel by the English writer John Wyndham. The novel was published by the estate of John Wyndham in ten years after his death; the events depicted in Web are written from the viewpoint of Arnold Delgrange, a man whose wife and daughter were killed in a motor collision. They revolve around a failed attempt to establish a utopian colony on the fictional island Tanakuatua in the Pacific Ocean, far from civilisation. After a slow start setting the scene with the mysterious "Project" being financed by the wealthy and eccentric Lord Foxfield, the island is purchased and a team of volunteers sets out by steamer for the island. A summarised back-story provides commentary on the colonising powers' impact on the native population during the 19th and 20th centuries. Tanakuatua is now uninhabited by humans, as its native inhabitants were evacuated from the island due to British nuclear testing and were relocated; however a small group of natives refused the evacuation order and placed a curse on any people who returned to the island.
When Delgrange and his fellow pioneers reach the island they are irritated and frustrated by a bizarre ceremony that their native porters conduct before proceeding with the unloading of their supplies from the steamer which brought them. As the steamer departs and disappears over the horizon, due to return in six months, a sense of their solitude descends, they compose messages to their friends and family to be transmitted by radio, but the radio operator returns looking agitated. When Delgrange follows him to investigate, they find that the transmitter has been crushed beneath a heavy packing case, they are not alone on the island after all, from this point on the sense of brooding menace intensifies. They discover that the island has been overrun by spiders that hunt in packs
Offset printing is a used printing technique in which the inked image is transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a water-based film, keeping the non-printing areas ink-free; the modern "web" process feeds a large reel of paper through a large press machine in several parts for several metres, which prints continuously as the paper is fed through. Development of the offset press came in two versions: in 1875 by Robert Barclay of England for printing on tin, in 1904 by Ira Washington Rubel of the United States for printing on paper. Lithography was created to be an inexpensive method of reproducing artwork; this printing process was limited to use on flat, porous surfaces because the printing plates were produced from limestone.
In fact, the word "lithograph" means "an image from stone" or "printed from stone". Tin cans were popular packaging materials in the 19th century, but transfer technologies were required before the lithographic process could be used to print on the tin; the first rotary offset lithographic printing press was created in England and patented in 1875 by Robert Barclay. This development combined mid-19th century transfer printing technologies and Richard March Hoe's 1843 rotary printing press—a press that used a metal cylinder instead of a flat stone; the offset cylinder was covered with specially treated cardboard that transferred the printed image from the stone to the surface of the metal. The cardboard covering of the offset cylinder was changed to rubber, still the most used material; as the 19th century closed and photography became popular, many lithographic firms went out of business. Photoengraving, a process that used halftone technology instead of illustration, became the primary aesthetic of the era.
Many printers, including Ira Washington Rubel of New Jersey, were using the low-cost lithograph process to produce copies of photographs and books. Rubel discovered in 1901—by forgetting to load a sheet—that printing from the rubber roller, instead of the metal, made the printed page clearer and sharper. After further refinement, the Potter Press printing Company in New York produced a press in 1903. By 1907 the Rubel offset; the Harris Automatic Press Company created a similar press around the same time. Charles and Albert Harris modeled their press "on a rotary letter press machine". Newspaper publisher Staley T. McBrayer invented the Vanguard web offset press for newspaper printing, which he unveiled in 1954 in Fort Worth, Texas. One of the important functions in the printing process is prepress production; this stage makes sure that all files are processed in preparation for printing. This includes converting to the proper CMYK color model, finalizing the files, creating plates for each color of the job to be run on the press.
Offset lithography is one of the most common ways of creating printed materials. A few of its common applications include: newspapers, brochures and books. Compared to other printing methods, offset printing is best suited for economically producing large volumes of high quality prints in a manner that requires little maintenance. Many modern offset presses use computer-to-plate systems as opposed to the older computer-to-film work flows, which further increases their quality. Advantages of offset printing compared to other printing methods include: consistent high image quality. Offset printing produces sharp and clean images and type more than, for example, letterpress printing. Properly developed plates used with optimized inks and fountain solution may achieve run lengths of more than a million impressions. Offset printing is the cheapest method for producing high quality prints in commercial printing quantities. Most a metal blade controls the amount of ink transferred from the ink trough to the fountain roller.
By adjusting the screws, the operator alters the gap between the blade and the fountain roller, increasing or decreasing the amount of ink applied to the roller in certain areas. This modifies the density of the colour in the respective area of the image. On older machines one adjusts the screws manually, but on modern machines the screw keys are operated electronically by the printer controlling the machine, enabling a much more precise result. Disadvantages of offset printing compared to other printing methods include: inferior image quality compared to rotogravure or photogravure printing; as a result small quantity printing jobs may now use digital offset machines. Every printing technology has its own identifying marks. In text reproduction, the type edges have clear outlines; the paper surrounding the ink dots is unprinted. The halftone dots can be hexagonal. Several variations of the printing pro
ReBoot is a Canadian computer-animated action-adventure television series that aired from 1994 to 2001. It was produced by Vancouver-based production company Mainframe Entertainment, Alliance Communications and BLT Productions; the animated series was created by Gavin Blair, Ian Pearson, Phil Mitchell, John Grace, with the visuals designed by Brendan McCarthy after an initial attempt by Ian Gibson. The series follows the adventures of a Guardian named Bob and his companions Enzo and Dot Matrix as they work to keep the computer system of Mainframe safe from the viruses known as Megabyte and Hexadecimal, it was the world's first computer-animated TV series. A reimagined, live-action/CG-animated series, ReBoot: The Guardian Code, was announced in 2015, the first ten episodes debuted on Netflix worldwide on March 30, 2018. YTV aired all twenty episodes from June 4 to July 5, 2018; the series follows the adventures of a Guardian named Bob and his companions Enzo and Dot Matrix as they work to keep the computer system of Mainframe safe from the viruses known as Megabyte and Hexadecimal.
The setting is in the inner world of a computer system known by its inhabitants as Mainframe. It was deliberately chosen due to technological constraints at the time, as the fictional computer world allowed for blocky looking models and mechanical animation; the main characters included: Bob – Guardian No. 452. He acts as the Guardian of Mainframe. Phong – The original COMMAND. COM of Mainframe. Phong works with Bob in defense of the system. Dot Matrix – Originally owns a local diner and many other "businesses", she takes over as COMMAND. COM in the third season. Enzo Matrix – Dot's younger brother who idolized Bob as a hero. Enzo grows up to become the renegade known as Matrix. In keeping with the computer theme of the show, "ENZO" is an acronym of four common computer processor status register flags, nable Interrupt + egative + ero + verflow. Frisket – A red and yellow dog, he is feral, only listens to Enzo. AndrAIa – A game sprite and friend of Enzo introduced in season two; the "AI" in her name refers to artificial intelligence.
Megabyte – A "command and conquer, infectious" computer virus, the series' main villain. Megabyte is an "Order Virus", he came from the virus known as Kilobyte and when merged with his sister Hexadecimal, they form an more powerful virus called Gigabyte. Hexadecimal – Megabyte's sister is a "chaotic" computer virus whose face is represented by a series of masks, each portraying a different emotion. Mouse – A freelance hacker, mentioned briefly. Mouse switches sides to join Dot and Enzo. Together they defend Mainframe when Bob is trapped in "The Web". Hack & Slash – Comic-relief bumblers, they are two most seen henchmen in Megabyte's employ. During the third season they switch sides and join the COMMAND. COM side of Mainframe. Ray Tracer – A web surfer that helps Matrix and Bob return to Mainframe, becomes romantically linked to Mouse. Mike the TV – A walking TV that aids and hinders the heroes. Mike the TV is shown speaking in a commercial narration-like voice. Bob – Michael Benyaer Bob, Glitch Bob – Ian James Corlett Dot Matrix, Princess Bula, System Voice – Kathleen Barr Enzo Matrix – Jesse Moss, Matthew Sinclair, Christopher Gray, Danny McKinnon Welman Matrix – Dale Wilson Matrix – Paul Dobson Enzo Matrix – Christopher Gray, Giacomo Baessato Megabyte – Tony Jay Hexadecimal – Shirley Millner AndrAIa – Andrea Libman AndrAIa – Sharon Alexander Phong, Mike the TV, Cecil, Al – Michael Donovan Mouse, Rocky the Raccoon – Stevie Vallance Ray Tracer – Donal Gibson Captain Capacitor, Old Man Pearson – Long John Baldry Slash, Turbo, Mr. Mitchell, Herr Doktor, Cyrus, Al's Waiter – Garry Chalk Hack – Phil Hayes Hack, Praying Mantis Virus – Scott McNeil Daemon – Colombe Demers Daecon – Richard Newman Killabyte, Gigabyte – Blu Mankuma Gigagirl, Copygirl – Venus Terzo Spectral Leader – David Kaye Hue Branch – Christopher Gaze Lens – Don Brown Maxine – Janyse Jaud Various – Brad Bent ReBoot was conceived in 1980 by the British creative collective The Hub, made up of John Grace, Ian Pearson, Gavin Blair, Phil Mitchell.
The latter two moved to Vancouver to develop the series there. Pearson and Blair by this time had created some of the first seen CGI characters, in the Dire Straits music video "Money for Nothing". However, technology was not yet advanced enough to make the show in the desired way. 3D animation tests began in earnest in 1990 and ReBoot had achieved its detailed look by 1991. Production continued on future episodes and the show aired in 1994 after enough episodes had been produced; this was a painstaking process, as no other company had at this time worked on a 3D animation project of this scale. Furthermore, the software used was new to all in the company. ReBoot was created on Silicon Graphics workstations using Softimage Creative Environment software; the show's early jokes at the expense of Board of Standards and Practices came from frustration encountered by the show's makers brought about by an abundance of script and editing changes that were imposed upon Mainframe before episodes were allowed to air.
These changes were all aimed at making the show "appropriate" for kids, to prevent the slightest appearance of "inappropriate" content, i
