Pi is a 1998 American psychological thriller film written and directed by Darren Aronofsky in his directorial debut. Pi was filmed on high-contrast black-and-white reversal film and earned Aronofsky the Directing Award at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival, the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay and the Gotham Open Palm Award; the title refers to the mathematical constant pi. The film is notable for its covering of an array of themes including religion and the relationship of the universe to mathematics; the story, about a mathematician with an obsession to find underlying complete order in the real world, contrasts two irreconcilable entities: the imperfect, irrational humanity and the rigor and regularity of mathematics number theory. Unemployed and living in a drab Chinatown apartment in New York City, Max Cohen is a number theorist who believes that everything in nature can be understood through numbers. Max suffers from cluster headaches, as well as extreme paranoia and social anxiety disorder.
His only social interactions are with Jenna, a young girl fascinated with his ability to mentally do complex calculations. Max tries to program Euclid, to make stock predictions. Euclid malfunctions, prints out a random 216-digit number, as well as a single pick at one-tenth its current value crashes. Disgusted, Max throws away the printout; the next morning, he finds out. He searches but cannot find the printout; when he mentions the number, Sol becomes asks if it contained 216 digits. When Max questions him about the number, Sol indicates, he urges Max to take a break. At a coffee shop he frequents, Max meets Lenny Meyer, a Hasidic Jew who does mathematical research on the Torah. Lenny demonstrates some simple Gematria, the correspondence of the Hebrew alphabet to numbers, explains how some people believe that the Torah is a string of numbers that form a code sent by God. Max is intrigued, noting some of the concepts are similar to other mathematical concepts such as the Fibonacci sequence. Max is approached by agents of a Wall Street firm.
One of the agents, Marcy Dawson, offers Max a classified computer chip called "Ming Mecca" in exchange for the results of his work. Using the Ming Mecca chip, Max has Euclid analyze mathematical patterns in the Torah. Once again, Euclid shows the 216-digit number on the screen before crashing; as Max begins to write down the number, he realizes that he knows the pattern, undergoes a sudden epiphany, passes out. After waking up, Max appears to become clairvoyant and is able to visualize the stock market patterns he had been searching for. However, his headaches increase in intensity, he discovers a strange vein-like bulge protruding from his left temple. Max has a falling out with Sol. One evening and her agents grab Max on the street and try to force him to explain the number, they had found the original printout. In an attempt to use it to manipulate the stock market, the firm caused the market to crash instead. Lenny helps Max get away. However, Lenny takes Max to his companions at a nearby synagogue.
They ask Max to give them the 216-digit number, believing it was meant for them to bring about the messianic age, as the number represents the unspeakable name of God. Max refuses. Max flees and visits Sol, only to find out he died from another stroke, finds a piece of paper with the number in his study. Back in his own apartment, Max does not take his painkillers. Driven to the brink of madness, he destroys part of Euclid. Believing that the number and the headaches are linked, Max tries to concentrate on the number through the pain. After passing out, Max has a vision of himself standing in a white void and repeating the digits of the number; the vision ends with Max hugging Devi. Standing alone in his trashed apartment, Max burns the paper with the number and blithely performs an impromptu trepanning on himself with an inadequate cranial drill; some time Jenna approaches Max in a park and asks him to do several calculations, including 748 ÷ 238 Max smiles and says that he doesn't know the answer to them.
He sits on the bench and watches the trees blowing in the breeze at peace.

Roger Ebert gave the film three and a half stars out of four, writing: "Pi is a thril
Pop Will Eat Itself
Pop Will Eat Itself are an English alternative rock band formed in Stourbridge in 1986 with members from Birmingham and the Black Country. Known as a grebo act, their style changed to incorporate sample-driven indie and industrial rock, their highest charting single was the 1993 top ten hit, "Get The Girl! Kill The Baddies!". After disbanding in 1996, having a brief reformation in 2005, they issued their first release in more than five years in 2010. An early permutation of the band formed in 1981 under the name From Eden. Members included Adam Mole, Chris Fradgley, Malcolm Treece and Miles Hunt. From Eden recruited Graham Crabb to replace Hunt on drums before splitting up. Crabb and Mansell recruited Richard March and changed their band name to Wild and Wandering; the name came from a Wasted Youth album under which one E. P. was released before becoming Pop Will Eat Itself in 1986. The new name was taken from a quotation in an NME article on Jamie Wednesday by David Quantick. In 1986, the band released the "Poppies Say Grrr!"
Single which became the'Single Of The Week' in the NME and playlisted by Janice Long on BBC Radio 1. The single was sold in a brown paper bag and was made available for sale at Martins Newsagents in Stourbridge High Street as well as from the home of one of the band. With their newfound popularity, the band set off on a six-week tour of Europe encountering hostility at the set length being less than half an hour though this comprised around 16 tracks. During this time the band were listening to more and more hip hop as well as music from a new emerging movement of sample-heavy dance records. After hearing Robert Gordon's remix of their cover of Sigue Sigue Sputnik's "Love Missile F1-11" and Age Of Chance's mini-LP Crush Collision, the band glimpsed their future as hip-hop/dance/rock music pioneers and decided to record their debut album Box Frenzy with Robert at Sheffield's FON studios in June/July 1987, it was here the band met The Designers Republic, to be the start of a successful partnership.
The album came out on manager Craig Jennings' Chapter 22 label.'CJ' still manages the band to the present day, along with the roster at Jennings' firm, Raw Power Management. The transition from punky guitar music to incorporating state-of-the-art production and new musical territories was not dissimilar to a path trodden by one of the band's musical heroes The Clash and subsequently Big Audio Dynamite; the album perplexed the music critics. Crabb, now more immersed in sample-finding and songwriting, moved from behind the drum kit to being a co-vocalist with Mansell and was replaced by a drum machine called Dr. Nightmare. March became the band expert on all things Atari and Akai. "Beaver Patrol", a cover of the Wilde Knights song, caused some controversy for its offensive lyrics but "There Is No Love Between Us Anymore" made the lower reaches of the UK charts and as a result, PWEI were signed to the record label RCA. Whilst much scratching of heads ensued around the dramatic change of direction, PWEI secured a first by being the first Western independent band to be invited to play the Soviet Union.
The band achieved Top 40 hits with "Can U Dig It?" and "Wise Up! Sucker" from their album, This Is the Day... This Is the Hour... This Is This! In late 1988 PWEI were invited by Rush Management to support Run DMC on their European tour. Main support act Public Enemy were becoming popular and had a large and militant following who booed off all support acts, in particular, PWEI, who agreed to leave the tour when the situation deteriorated in Amsterdam, they released three successful albums on RCA. The first two were recorded with the aid of Flood, known for his work with Nine Inch Nails, U2 and Depeche Mode; the band toured extensively in the UK, US, including appearances at Reading Festival. Their singles charted progressively higher, with every single release charting inside the UK Top Forty from 1990 until their final single release in 1994. On 1992's The Looks or the Lifestyle? the band recruited John "Fuzz" Townshend as their drummer to complement their standard array of loops and pre-programmed drums.
The band had discussed adding a live drummer in 1990, however touring commitments made it impractical to do so until the band were able to break touring activity in late 1991 to commence recording. The album peaked at UK No. 15, featured the Top 30 hit singles "Karmadrome" and "Bulletproof!" Despite healthy sales and successful widescale touring, by January 1993, the band's biggest supporters at RCA had left the company, the remaining executives did not understand the band or their music, suggesting at one point that EMF'write a hit' for them at one meeting. The band was dropped from the label before the "Get the Girl! Kill the Baddies!" Single was released. It went on to peak at number 9 in the UK Singles Chart, becoming the band's biggest hit, making the band at that time the highest charting act to appear on Top of the Pops without a record deal. In an attempt to recoup their investment, the label released a live album Live at Weird's Bar and Grill recorded in London in October 1992. PWEI's political stance became more explicit with the release of the single "Ich Bin Ein Ausland

Pacific City, Oregon
Pacific City is a census-designated place and unincorporated community in Tillamook County, United States. The population was 1,027 at the 2000 census. Pacific City's main attraction is the Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area. In 1845, Mr. Johnson, a cook on an English ship sailing along the Columbia River and traveled down the Willamette Valley. Establishing a land claim in Champoeg, he began removing brush and that summer set off a burn to clear debris; the Champoeg Fire spread eastward. The wind reversed direction and strengthened, blowing the blaze around the previous burn and fanning it into the dry Coast Range, where it burned in the Yamhill basin for weeks, consuming 1,500,000 acres of old growth forest - the largest such area destroyed in a single forest fire in the United States. Settlers did not live west of the Coast Range, but the small tribes of Native Americans in the area depleted by 80% due to malaria and other epidemics from 1830–1841, were driven from their lands; the Nestuggas were one such tribe, encamped just north of Pacific City near the town of Woods.
They had noticed the smoke for several weeks, but were surprised one morning as the bright flames flickered atop the crests of the surrounding hills and rushed down on them. The Nestuggas fled by canoe down the Big Nestucca River to the ocean, took refuge on the half-mile wide bare sandspit between Nestucca Bay and the ocean. After several weeks the fires were ended by a heavy rain, but the devastation had been complete: The forests were gone, the game found to be charred crisp or cooked in the water they had sought refuge in. Nestucca Bay was a rich fishing area, allowing the Nestuggas to survive despite the destruction of game. However, beginning in 1854 settlers began arriving in the Tillamook Valley, by 1876 Chief Nestugga Bill and the 200 remaining people of the small tribe were relocated to a reservation on the Salmon and Siletz River. Many early pioneers arrived via seagoing steamers, others arrived from across the mountains; the town of Woods established itself as a depot for the new arrivals and a source of supplies and trade for the settlers.
In 1886 the Linewebber and Brown cannery was started to take advantage of the plentiful fish in Nestucca Bay, shipping 12,000 cans of salmon a year and providing an economic basis until 1926 for the region, along with logging and dairy farming. The area became a "vacation" destination for Oregon Trail pioneers from the midwest, who had never seen the ocean. In 1893, Thomas Malaney platted the town of Ocean Park directly across the river from Woods; when a flood in 1894 wiped out the first lots, Malaney moved the town south to higher ground. The Sea View hotel was built around 1895 to serve vacationers from the Willamette Valley. Other buildings and campgrounds were established for visitors, Ferry Street was "paved" with wooden planks for automobiles; the town gained its modern name of Pacific City in 1909 to avoid confusion with the Washington town of Ocean Park. By 1926, overfishing from gillnetting had left the bay depleted of salmon, so commercial harvesting was stopped and fishermen switched to surf-launched dories.
Tourism in the 1920s became the mainstay of the economy. An airport was built to attract barnstormers and aviators, other roads and bridges were opened. Pacific City is located along the Pacific Ocean adjacent to Bob Straub State Park and spans the Nestucca River with about half the city's area being behind Nestucca Bay, it is part of the Oregon Coast. According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 3.8 square miles, of which, 3.7 square miles of it is land and 0.1 square miles of it is water. The area is located 13 feet above sea-level; as of the census of 2000, there were 1,027 people, 485 households, 317 families residing in the CDP. The population density was 274.7 people per square mile. There were 1,090 housing units at an average density of 291.6 per square mile. The racial makeup of the CDP was 94.16% Caucasian, 1.75% Native American, 0.58% Asian, 2.04% from other races, 1.46% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 3.02% of the population. There were 485 households out of which 13.4% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 54.8% were married couples living together, 6.6% had a female householder with no husband present, 34.6% were non-families.
30.1% of all households were made up of individuals and 14.8% had someone living alone, 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.12 and the average family size was 2.55. In the CDP, the population was spread out with 16.1% under the age of 18, 4.0% from 18 to 24, 17.6% from 25 to 44, 35.0% from 45 to 64, 27.4% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 53 years. For every 100 females, there were 96.7 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 94.1 males. The median income for a household in the CDP was $33,250, the median income for a family was $55,368. Males had a median income of $26,042 versus $26,250 for females; the per capita income for the CDP was $25,819.

Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region on the West Coast of the United States. The Columbia River delineates much of Oregon's northern boundary with Washington, while the Snake River delineates much of its eastern boundary with Idaho; the parallel 42 ° north delineates the southern boundary with Nevada. Oregon is one of only four states of the continental United States to have a coastline on the Pacific Ocean. Oregon was inhabited by many indigenous tribes before Western traders and settlers arrived. An autonomous government was formed in the Oregon Country in 1843 before the Oregon Territory was created in 1848. Oregon became the 33rd state on February 14, 1859. Today, at 98,000 square miles, Oregon is the ninth largest and, with a population of 4 million, 27th most populous U. S. state. The capital, Salem, is the second most populous city in Oregon, with 169,798 residents. Portland, with 647,805, ranks as the 26th among U. S. cities. The Portland metropolitan area, which includes the city of Vancouver, Washington, to the north, ranks the 25th largest metro area in the nation, with a population of 2,453,168.
Oregon is one of the most geographically diverse states in the U. S. marked by volcanoes, abundant bodies of water, dense evergreen and mixed forests, as well as high deserts and semi-arid shrublands. At 11,249 feet, Mount Hood, a stratovolcano, is the state's highest point. Oregon's only national park, Crater Lake National Park, comprises the caldera surrounding Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the United States; the state is home to the single largest organism in the world, Armillaria ostoyae, a fungus that runs beneath 2,200 acres of the Malheur National Forest. Because of its diverse landscapes and waterways, Oregon's economy is powered by various forms of agriculture and hydroelectric power. Oregon is the top timber producer of the contiguous United States, the timber industry dominated the state's economy in the 20th century. Technology is another one of Oregon's major economic forces, beginning in the 1970s with the establishment of the Silicon Forest and the expansion of Tektronix and Intel.
Sportswear company Nike, Inc. headquartered in Beaverton, is the state's largest public corporation with an annual revenue of $30.6 billion. The earliest evidence of the name Oregon has Spanish origins; the term "orejón" comes from the historical chronicle Relación de la Alta y Baja California written by the new Spaniard Rodrigo Montezuma and made reference to the Columbia River when the Spanish explorers penetrated into the actual North American territory that became part of the Viceroyalty of New Spain. This chronicle is the first topographical and linguistic source with respect to the place name Oregon. There are two other sources with Spanish origins, such as the name Oregano, which grows in the southern part of the region, it is most probable that the American territory was named by the Spaniards, as there are some populations in Spain such as "Arroyo del Oregón" considering that the individualization in Spanish language "El Orejón" with the mutation of the letter "g" instead of "j". Another early use of the name, spelled Ouragon, was in a 1765 petition by Major Robert Rogers to the Kingdom of Great Britain.
The term referred to the then-mythical River of the West. By 1778, the spelling had shifted to Oregon. In his 1765 petition, Rogers wrote: The rout...is from the Great Lakes towards the Head of the Mississippi, from thence to the River called by the Indians Ouragon... One theory is that the name comes from the French word ouragan, applied to the River of the West based on Native American tales of powerful Chinook winds on the lower Columbia River, or from firsthand French experience with the Chinook winds of the Great Plains. At the time, the River of the West was thought to rise in western Minnesota and flow west through the Great Plains. Joaquin Miller explained in Sunset magazine, in 1904, how Oregon's name was derived: The name, Oregon, is rounded down phonetically, from Ouve água—Oragua, Or-a-gon, Oregon—given by the same Portuguese navigator that named the Farallones after his first officer, it in a large way, means cascades:'Hear the waters.' You should steam up the Columbia and hear and feel the waters falling out of the clouds of Mount Hood to understand the full meaning of the name Ouve a água, Oregon.
Another account, endorsed as the "most plausible explanation" in the book Oregon Geographic Names, was advanced by George R. Stewart in a 1944 article in American Speech. According to Stewart, the name came from an engraver's error in a French map published in the early 18th century, on which the Ouisiconsink River was spelled "Ouaricon-sint", broken on two lines with the -sint below, so there appeared to be a river flowing to the west named "Ouaricon". According to the Oregon Tourism Commission, present-day Oregonians pronounce the state's name as "or-uh-gun, never or-ee-gone". After being drafted by the Detroit Lions in 2002, former Oregon Ducks quarterback Joey Harrington distributed "Orygun" stickers to members of the media as a reminder of how to pronounce the name of his home state; the stickers are sold by the University of Oregon Bookstore. Oregon is 295 miles north to south at longest distance, 395 miles east to west. With an area of 98,381 square miles, Oregon is larger than the United Kingdom.
It is the ninth largest state in the United States. Oregon's highest point is the summit of Mount Hood, at 11,249 feet, its lowest point is the sea level of the Pacific Ocean along the Oregon Coas
Doom is a 2005 American science fiction action horror film directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak and written by David Callaham and Wesley Strick, loosely based on the video game series of the same name created by id Software. Starring Karl Urban, Rosamund Pike and Dwayne Johnson, the film follows a group of marines in a research facility on Mars. After arriving on a rescue and retrieval mission after communications ceased, the marines soon battle genetically engineered monsters plaguing the facility. After film rights deals with Universal Pictures and Columbia Pictures expired, id Software signed a deal with Warner Bros. with the stipulation that the film would be greenlit within a year. Warner Bros. lost the rights, which were subsequently given back to Universal, which started production in 2004. The film was an international co-production of the United States, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Germany. In an interview, executive producer John Wells stated that a second film would be put into production if the first was a success at the box office.
The film grossed $28.2 million in North America and $27.8 million overseas for a worldwide total of $56 million. In the year 2026, a portal to an ancient city on Mars is discovered in the Nevada desert. Twenty years the Union Aerospace Corporation research facility on Mars is attacked by an unknown assailant. Following a distress call sent by Dr. Carmack, a group of Marines, led by Sgt. Asher "Sarge" Mahonin, is sent on a search-and-rescue mission to Mars; the team uses the portal to get to Mars. One of the marines, John "Reaper" Grimm, accompanies his twin sister, Dr. Samantha Grimm, to one of the labs within the devastated sector to retrieve data and he learns that the dig site, where their parents were accidentally killed, was reopened and ancient skeletons of a genetically enhanced humanoid race were discovered. While searching for survivors in the facility, the marines find a traumatized and injured Dr. Carmack and escort him to the medical lab for treatment, but he disappears; the Marines shoot at an unknown creature in the Genetics Lab that leads them down into the facility's sewer, where it attacks and kills Goat.
The corpse of the creature from the sewers is taken to the Medical Lab for examination. Sam discovers that its organs are human, she and Duke witness Goat resurrecting and killing himself by smashing his head against a reinforced window. On, the two are attacked by one of the creatures but manage to trap it and realize it is a mutated Dr. Carmack; the squad tracks down several of the creatures with mixed success, leading to deaths of Mac and Portman. An angered Sarge puts down the mutated Dr. Carmack. Sam and Sarge learn that UAC was experimenting on humans using the Martian Chromosome harvested from the remains of the ancient skeletons but the mutants got loose, leading to the outbreak. Sam and Reaper try to convince Sarge that the creatures are humans from the facility, mutated by the C24 serum and that not all of those infected will transform into the creatures. Sam hypothesises that some of those introduced to the Martian Chromosome develop superhuman abilities but retain their humanity, while others with a predisposition for violent or psychotic behavior will be more adversely affected.
The creatures use the portal and slaughter and mutate most of the research staff into abominations as well. This leads to Sarge ordering his team to sanitize the entire facility. Kid returns with a scared Pinky, but when he informs Sarge that he didn't execute a group of survivors he found and refuses to go back and do so, Sarge executes Kid for insubordination, leading to a standoff taking place; the group is attacked by infected humans who kill Duke and drag Sarge and Pinky away. Reaper is wounded by a ricocheting bullet. To prevent him from bleeding to death, Sam reluctantly injects Reaper with the C24 serum before he passes out. Reaper finds his wounds have healed and that Sam has gone missing. Using his new superhuman abilities he fights his way through the facility battling a mutated and monstrous Pinky before finding Sam unconscious and Sarge, who has become infected and murdered the group of survivors that Kid found; the pair battle with the aid of their superhuman powers and Reaper is able to gain the upper hand and throws Sarge into the portal to Mars along with a grenade, which destroys Sarge and the Mars facility.
Reaper carries his unconscious sister into the elevator and rides back up to the surface.
