This film involves Nick and Nora's visit to Nick's parents who live in the small town of Sycamore Springs. The early part of the film highlights difficulties in traveling during wartime with some very funny attempts to smuggle Asta on the train. Early on, it is revealed that Nick's father, Dr. Charles Harry Davenport has never been overly impressed with his son's career choice. The remainder of the film is not just about solving the crime, which typically Nick and Nora stumble into quite innocently, but also about resolving this issue between Nick and his father.

'Musique de la Légion étrangère' , 'Music of the French Foreign Legion' - Musik der Fremdenlegion "Legio Patria Nostra" (The Legion is our Homeland) "Honneur et Fidélité" (Honour and Fidelity) "Marche ou crève" (March or die, unofficial) It was in Mexico on 30 April 1863 that the Legion earned its legendary status. A company led by Capitaine Danjou, numbering 62 soldiers and 3 officers, was escorting a convoy to the besieged city of Puebla when it was attacked and besieged by two thousand members of the Mexican Army, organized in three battalions of infantry and cavalry, numbering 1,200 and 800 respectively. The patrol was forced to make a defence in Hacienda Camarón, and despite the hopelessness of the situation, fought nearly to the last man. When only five survivors remained, out of ammunition, a bayonet charge was conducted in which three of the five were killed. The remaining two were brought before the Mexican general, who allowed them to return to France as an honour guard for the body of Capitaine Danjou. The captain had a wooden hand which was stolen during the battle; it was later returned to the legion and is now kept in a case in the Foreign Legion museum at Aubagne, and paraded annually on Camerone day. Previously, the Legion was not stationed in mainland France except in wartime. Until 1962, the Legion headquarters were located in Sidi-Bel-Abbès, Algeria. Nowadays, some units of the Legion are in Corsica or overseas possessions, while the rest is in the south of mainland France. Current headquarters are in Aubagne, France, just outside Marseille. There are nine regiments and one independent sub-unit : * Mainland France o 1st Foreign Cavalry Regiment (1er REC), based in Orange (armoured troops), o 1st Foreign Regiment (1er RE), based in Aubagne (legion headquarters), o 2nd Foreign Infantry Regiment (2e REI), based in Nîmes, o 4th Foreign Regiment (4e RE), based in Castelnaudary (training); o 1st Foreign Engineer Regiment (1er REG), based in Laudun; o 2nd Foreign Engineer Regiment (2e REG), based in St Christol; * Corsica o 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment (2e REP), based in Calvi; * French Overseas Territories and Overseas Collectives, o 3rd Foreign Infantry Regiment (3e REI), based in French Guiana, o Foreign Legion Detachment in Mayotte (DLEM); * Africa o 13th Foreign Legion Demi-Brigade (13 DBLE), based in Djibouti. The Legionnaire's Code of Honour Every Legionnaire must know by heart the "Legionnaire's Code of Honour". The Legionnaires spend many hours learning it, reciting it, and then getting the vocal synchronization together: “ 1. Légionnaire, you are a volunteer serving France with "Honour and Fidelity". 2. Every legionnaire is your brother-in-arms, regardless of his nationality, race, or religion. You will demonstrate this by strict solidarity which must always unite members of the same family. 3. Respect of traditions, devotion to your leaders, discipline and comradeship are your strengths, courage and loyalty your virtues. 4. Proud of your status as legionnaire, you display this in your uniform, which is always impeccable, your behaviour always dignified but modest, your living quarters always clean. 5. An elite soldier, you will train rigorously, you will maintain your weapon as your most precious possession, you are constantly concerned with your physical form. 6. A mission is sacred, you will carry it out until the end respecting laws, customs of war, international conventions and, if necessary, at the risk of your life. (Changed in November 2000) 7. In combat, you will act without passion and without hate, you will respect the vanquished enemy, you will never abandon your dead or wounded, nor surrender your arms. *******stores.lulu****/duthel *******www.lulu****/content/1383048

A prophetic vintage video, this promotional film seeks to educate the public about a new and exciting technological breakthrough material: plastic. The thrust of the film is a reaction to the ramped up production of World War II, thus the need to promote peacetime manufacturing with wartime materials. All the same, the video discusses the history, production, and use of plastics in great detail, creating a high educational value. The science and chemistry behind the production is also touched upon, adding further historical value. Overall, this film is a highly informative piece on a material that is hardly recognized today, yet ironically is invisibly pervasive in nearly every facet of daily life which is enhanced by technology.

In the old days, there were only the animal, vegetable, and mineral kingdoms, but this film adds a new one: the plastic kingdom. In this cute educational film, little Susie doesn’t know about the fourth kingdom as she plays twenty questions, though, so her engineer dad has to set her straight. Unfortunately for the other kids at Susie’s party, dad then launches into a lesson on plastics, thermoplastics, thermosetting compounds, and plastic production. This film was sponsored by GE, and shows all the wartime and peacetime applications of plastics. Then to the best most entertaining part, the film goes on to speculate wildly about the ways plastic might be used in the future: plastic shoes, fabrics, and more. The Kingdom of Plastics illuminates the post World War II demand for peacetime plastic uses, as well as providing campy entertainment in a wonderful vintage film.

Witness the wave of the future through Plexiglas! This short film, Looking Ahead Through Plexiglas, displays the wonder and creativity that became available with the advent of this synthetic material during the 1940s. Its versatile properties are enumerated in this historical movie, amazing for viewers even to this day! While magazines, fancy décor, and useful home appliances benefited from the transparent plastic, it was also used during wartime as airplane windshields, canopies, and gun turrets. This video expresses the historical benefits and practicalities Plexiglas was able to accomplish and serves as a nifty snapshot of a time past in technological development.

A marca Fanta foi criada na Alemanha, nos anos 40, e hoje é vendida em 187 países. A Fanta Laranja chegou ao Brasil em 1964, seguida de Fanta Uva, em 1971. A partir da década de 90, foram lançadas as versões light. Inovações como Fanta Laranja Mix se tornaram freqüentes e hoje são aguardadas pelo consumidor. No mundo, a marca Fanta é a líder entre os refrigerantes dos sabores Laranja e Uva.INGREDIENTES: água gaseificada, açúcar, suco natural de laranja 10%, aroma artificial, acidulante INS 330, conservador INS 211, estabilizantes INS 444 e INS 480, corante artificial INS 110.Fanta é um sumo refrigerante vendido pela Coca-Cola Company. A marca Fanta foi lançada no mercado pela primeira vez na Alemanha na década de 1940 e hoje é vendida em 187 países. A Fanta foi criada pelo químico alemão Schetelig durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, para a Coca-Cola da Alemanha, em Essen. Devido às restrições do tempo de guerra, a fábrica alemão não obtinha dos Estados Unidos o xarope de base para a produção da Coca-Cola tradicional. O diretor da fábrica, Max Keith, precisava de um produto para manter a fábrica em produção e propôs um sabor a frutos quando analisou que matérias-primas estavam disponíveis. Com fibra de maçã remanescente da pressão para a fabricação de cidra e com um subproduto da fabricação do queijo, a Fanta foi criada e tornou-se logo popular. A Fanta alemã de origem tinha uma cor amarela e um sabor diferente do da hoje comercializada Fanta Laranja. O sabor variou durante o tempo da guerra, em função das frutas disponíveis.A versão mais conhecida no Brasil é a Fanta Laranja, que chegou no país em 1964, sendo o alvo publicitário os jovens. Outra versão da Fanta é a Fanta Uva,cuja a origem é brasileira foi criada em 1971. Até 1984, foi vendida no Brasil a Fanta Limão, antecessora da Sprite. Em Portugal estão atualmente sendo vendidos os sabores laranja, ananás, limão e maracujá. A Fanta tem como caracteristica a variação de sabores em cada mercado. Chegando em alguns mercados até sabores exóticos como a Fanta Lactea (Japão). No Brasil é encontrada em 16 tipos de embalagens e teve versões como a Fanta Discovery, Fanta Mix, Fanta Maçã, Fanta Citrus e Fanta Morango, mas nenhuma destas são mais produzidas pela baixa taxa de vendas, restando apenas a tradicional Fanta Laranja e a Fanta Uva.Fanta is a global brand of fruit-flavored soft drinks from the The Coca-Cola Company. There are over 70 flavors world-wide; however, most of them are only available in some countries. The brand was originally introduced in Nazi Germany in 1940, and was purchased by Coca-Cola in 1960. Today it is available in 180 countries.In 1940 Fanta was created by the German chemist Schetelig during World War II in Germany, for the German Coca-Cola bottling company in Essen. Due to wartime restrictions on shipping between Germany and the United States, the German bottling plant could not get Coca-Cola syrup. The CEO of the plant, Max Keith, needed a product to keep the plant in operation and devised a fruit flavored drink made from available ingredients. Using apple fiber remaining from cider pressing and whey, a byproduct from cheese manufacture, Fanta was created and became quite popular. The original German Fanta had a yellow color and a different flavor from that of Fanta Orange. The flavor varied throughout the war, depending on the ingredients used. The name 'Fanta' was coined during an employee contest to name the new beverage[citation needed]. Keith told them to let their Fantasie (German for "imagination") run wild. On hearing that, salesman Joe Knipp spontaneously arrived upon the name Fanta. After World War II, Fanta was introduced to the United States by Coca-Cola, and in 1960 they bought the trademark. What had been known as Fanta Klare Zitrone ("Clear Lemon Fanta") in Germany, was introduced to the United States as Sprite in 1961 to compete against 7-Up. Fanta Orange is the most popular Fanta flavor, available in 180 countries. In terms of volume, Brazil is the largest consumer of Fanta in the world, followed by India[citation needed]. Fanta remains more popular in Europe and South America than in the United States. Primary competitors to Fanta have included Tango, Orangina, Mirinda, Slice, orange Crush, and Tropicana Twister. In some markets, Coca-Cola also has spun off various diet Fanta varieties including Fanta "Z" and Fanta Zero Orange.The composition of Fanta, for the same flavor, varies from country to country. For example, the European Fanta Orange has orange juice (in variable percentages), whereas the US formulation does not

Genève est la seconde ville de Suisse et le chef-lieu du canton de Genève. La Ville de Genève compte 186 825 habitants en 2008. Elle est le centre régional dans les domaines de la santé, de l'éducation, de la culture et des transports et son aire urbaine forme une agglomération transfrontalière, le bassin franco-valdo-genevois, s'étendant sur le canton de Vaud et les départements français de l'Ain et de la Haute-Savoie, pour un total d'environ 780 000 habitants. L'Arc lémanique[3] est l'aire urbaine située autour du lac Léman — deux pôles principaux, Genève-Annemasse et Lausanne, distants de 60 kilomètres ainsi que les villes de Vevey-Montreux et Thonon-Évian — et s'étendant jusquà Annecy au sud. Genève abrite de nombreuses organisations internationales, dont le siège européen des Nations unies, le Comité international de la Croix-Rouge (CICR), l'Organisation mondiale du commerce (OMC), l'Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS), l'Organisation internationale de normalisation (ISO), etc. Genève est la deuxième place financière du pays. Selon une étude menée par Mercer Consulting[4], c'est la métropole qui offre la meilleure qualité de vie au monde avec Zurich, devant Vancouver et Vienne. Genève fait également partie des villes mondiales. La langue officielle de la ville est le français. ¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤ Geneva (French: Genève) is the second-most populous city in Switzerland (after Zürich) and is the most populous city of Romandie (the French-speaking part of Switzerland). Situated where the Rhône River exits Lake Geneva (French Lac Léman), it is the capital of the Republic and Canton of Geneva. The city proper had a population of 186,825 in June 2008,[1] and the metropolitan area had 769,000 residents according to a 2005 census.[2] The Geneva metropolitan area extends partly over Switzerland (517,000 inhabitants) and partly over France (251,000 inhabitants).[2] Geneva is a worldwide center for diplomacy and international cooperation, and is widely regarded as a global city, mainly because of the presence of numerous international organizations, including the headquarters of many of the agencies of the United Nations[3] and the Red Cross.[4] It is also the place where the Geneva Conventions were signed, which chiefly concern the treatment of wartime non-combatants and prisoners of war. A 2007 survey by Mercer Consulting found Geneva to have the second-highest quality of life in the world (narrowly outranked by Zürich). ¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤ Η Γενεύη (γαλλικά: Genève, αγγλ.

Η πόλη βρίσκεται στις δυτικές όχθες της λίμνης της Γενεύης (Lac de Genève ή Lac Leman). Η Γενεύη θεωρείται σημαντική πόλη λόγω της παρουσίας πολυάριθμων διεθνών οργανισμών, συμπεριλαμβανομένης της ευρωπαϊκής έδρας του Οργανισμού Ηνωμένων Εθνών (ΟΗΕ). Η οικονομία της Γενεύης είναι προσανατολισμένη στις υπηρεσίες.
