unneeded information for the Win!!!!!!!

In technical terms, a screw is a helix or inclined plane wrapped around a cylindrical or conical body. In industrial applications, a screw typically refers to a threaded fastener with a conical shank and a specialized head; threaded cylindrical shanks are instead referred to as bolts. Whatever the definition, screws are used to connect or, occasionally, move objects.

Interestingly, the screw was rarely used as a metal fastener before the 1400s, when it was used to hold together pieces of metal, often armor. Screwdrivers, in fact, did not appear until the middle of the 18th century. Screws work through an interesting mechanical process. They use the basic principles of a wedge and inclined plane. As a screw is inserted into an object, it creates a corresponding inclined plane. As it is turned, the relatively small amount of force exerted by the operator is converted to a greater force exerted at a smaller point—the tip of the screw helix. The rotational force, or torque, generated by the person turning the screw is converted to a linear force concentrated at a much smaller area. Screws provide a much firmer hold than a nail. The preload, or stretch introduced to the screw as it is tightened, determines the strength of the connection. Provided the screw’s yield tensile strength and the strength of the threads of the material are not overburdened, the screw will not loosen. Otherwise, the joint will be compromised, and may break, loosen or become stripped.

Screws come in a variety of materials, including nylon, stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, brass and copper—even ceramic. The major types of screw driving shapes are slotted, Phillips, hex, square, one way and torx. These shapes simply determine the tools needed to tighten (or loosen) the screw. Head shapes include truss, socket, flat, round and dome, among others. The thread of a screw also plays an important part in its function. The pitch of the thread, its depth and the radius at its top and bottom all factor into its performance, as does the angle of the thread form. In the mid-1800s these angles began to be standardized, the Americans using a 60-degree thread form and the British using one at 55 degrees. Today, these attributes vary between uses. Machine screws, for instance, have finer threads than wood screw, which have deep threads. Other screws are designed to have sharp threads to cut through sheet metal and plastic. Tool sets are also an obvious issue when choosing screws, as different heads and driving shapes necessitate different drivers or driver attachments.

Our understanding of the dinosaur world is very incomplete, and many dinosaurs are known only from fragments of their skeletons. For example, in 1948, enormous curved claws were discovered in 70-million-year-old, Late Cretaceous deposits in Mongolia. These were the first remains of this animal to be found.

When the animal was described in 1954, it was thought to be a previously unknown form of giant turtle. Accordingly, its species name, cheloniformis, means “turtle-like”. The name of its genus, Therizinosaurus, refers to the scythe-like shape of the giant claws: it is derived from the Greek word therizo, meaning "to reap or mow".

Subsequent discoveries of more Therizinosaurusbones, including articulated fore- and hindlimbs, allowed scientists to classify Therizinosaurusas a theropod dinosaur.

Therizinosaurus cheloniformis is estimated to have been about 11 m (36 ft.) long, with a weight close to 2.7 t (3 tn.). The forelimbs were about 3 m (10 ft.) long. One of the huge claws measured 70 cm (27 in.) along its outer curve.

Discoveries of more-complete skeletal and skull elements of a related dinosaur, Alxasaurus, in Mongolia in the late 1980s, have allowed palaeontologists to reconstruct the skeletal and life-like appearance of Therizinosaurus.The sauropod-like skull and the structure of the jaws and teeth suggest a herbivorous diet, which was unusual amongst the generally carnivorous theropods. With its long neck and flexible forelimbs, Therizinosaurus may have foraged amongst the high vegetation.

From Paris With Love is an awesome movie, best I've seen in a long time. You can watch it online here:

A good weekend popcorn movie with a strangely powerful ending. A keeper.
John Travolta knows how to have fun, and a lot of the time that means that the audience gets to have fun too.

Whatever you want to say about John Travolta, he always seems to be a guy who is having fun when he is in front of the camera. From playing the villain in movies like Face/Off to playing a large woman in Hairspray to playing an even larger alien with dreadlocks in Battlefield Earth, Travolta knows how to enjoy himself regardless of the quality of the movie he is starring in. Of course, that fun does seem to be even more evident when Mr. Travolta finds himself in a winner of a movie, as is the case with From Paris with Love.

Coming in at a svelte 92 minutes, From Paris with Love is so much fun, and so action packed, that it seems to fly by leaving the viewer wanting more when the film comes to an end. Director Pierre Morel (who directed 2009’s hit action film Taken) and Producer Luc Besson (who is responsible for TONS of excellent action movies ranging from the groundbreaking Leon/The Professional to exhaustingly fun Transporter series) put together a film that (a) allows Travolta to play be his wild and crazy self to the fullest extent possible, (b) uses Jonathan Rhys Meyers perfectly as a straight man/anchor to Travolta’s manic Charlie Wax, and (c) surrounds the two of them with enough chases, explosions and gunfights to keep even the most needy action junkie satisfied. Add to all of that a few entertaining (although somewhat telegraphed) twists and you have got yourself one hell of a good movie in From Paris with Love.

Of course, don’t mistake my enthusiasm for From Paris with Love for tacit approval for everything in the film. In the course of making an exhilarating action movie, many filmmakers have a tendency to throw any sense of realism right out the window, and Morel and Besson are examples of this rule instead of exceptions to it (here again I will refer you to what I consider to be the beloved, although many refer to is as silly, Transporter trilogy and its infamous oil wrestling scene). With that being noted, I have always believed that if you are not willing to suspend disbelief, read an encyclopedia instead of going to the movies.

In addition to kinetic action and great chemistry (not romantic) between the two leads in the film, there is also a healthy, but not heavy, dose of comedy intertwined throughout From Paris with Love. However, the comedy in this movie is balanced well with the action and never takes this movie out of the realm of action and into the often disastrous “action-comedy”. As a matter of fact, when I originally saw the previews for From Paris With Love, my biggest worry was that the movie would turn out to be yet another entry into the buddy cop (or CIA agent in this case) movie genre, and that I would be “treated” to low quality jokes and sparse action. Instead I was pleasantly surprised when presented with intelligent humor (including one self-referential joke by Travolta that reminds us of when he made the return from being the “has been” star of the Look Who’s Talking movies to a certified movie star again) and all the action that could fit into 92 minutes.

Unfortunately, From Paris with Love only made about 8 million dollars in its opening weekend against reigning Goliath Avatar and surprising chick-flick hit Dear John. What that tells me is that for whatever reason, a lot of people missed on seeing a great movie this past weekend. Hopefully more people will give From Paris with Love a chance in its second weekend. If not, I will screen it for as many of my friends when I eventually buy the Blu-Ray release, because From Paris with Love is definitely one for the library.
Not usually a movie I would choose to see but I was pleasantly surprised. John and John seemed to have a lot of ridiculous fun running around Europe with a large vase of coke. The action was good, the story line intriguing and there was some great one-liners that kept the humor going. It's no Shoot Em' Up or Die Hard but it's fun none-the-less.
