Lat.Latin languagelat
Many military organizations today have Latin mottos, such as Semper paratus ("always ready"), the motto of the United States Coast Guard; Semper fidelis ("always faithful"), the motto of the United States Marine Corps; and Per ardua ad astra ("Through adversity/struggle to the stars"), the motto of the Royal Air Force (RAF). Some colleges and universities have adopted Latin mottos, for example Harvard University's motto is Veritas ("truth"). Veritas was the goddess of truth, a daughter of Saturn, and the mother of Virtue.

Monster movie

Traditional monster movies re-emerged to a wider audience during the late 1990s. An American remake of Godzilla was made in 1998. The Godzilla featured in that film was considerably different from the original and many Godzilla fans disliked the film; despite that, the film was a financial success. In 2002, a French monster film Brotherhood of the Wolf became the second-highest-grossing French-language film in the United States in the last two decades. In 2004, Godzilla was temporarily retired following Godzilla: Final Wars. Director Peter Jackson, inspired by the original King Kong and Ray Harryhausen films, remade King Kong in 2005, which was both a critical and commercial success.

Silent film

silentsilent erasilent films
According to a September 2013 report published by the United States Library of Congress, some 70 percent of American silent feature films fall into this category. There are numerous reasons for this number being so high. Some films have been lost unintentionally, but most silent films were destroyed on purpose. Between the end of the silent era and the rise of home video, film studios would often discard large numbers of silent films out of a desire to free up storage in their archives, assuming that they had lost the cultural relevance and economic value to justify the amount of space they occupied.

Universal Pictures

Afterward, Universal Pictures acquired the United States distribution rights of several of StudioCanal's films, such as David Lynch's Mulholland Drive (2001) and Brotherhood of the Wolf (2001) which became the second-highest-grossing French language film in the United States since 1980. Universal Pictures and StudioCanal also co-produced several films, such as Love Actually (2003) an $40 million-budgeted film that eventually grossed $246 million worldwide. In late 2000, the New York Film Academy was permitted to use the Universal Studios backlot for student film projects in an unofficial partnership.

For instance, a narrative that takes place in an imagined town in the northeastern United States could be considered realistic fiction as long as the plot and characters are consistent with the history of a region and the natural characteristics that someone who has been to the northeastern United States expects; however, if the narrative takes place in an imagined town, on an imagined continent, with an imagined history and an imagined ecosystem, the work becomes fantasy with or without supernatural elements. Fantasy has often been compared to science fiction and horror because they are the major categories of speculative fiction.

The longest complete dinosaur is the 27 m long Diplodocus, which was discovered in Wyoming in the United States and displayed in Pittsburgh's Carnegie Natural History Museum in 1907.

The Carmen Funes Museum has an Argentinosaurus reconstructed skeleton mount 39.7 m long. There were larger dinosaurs, but knowledge of them is based entirely on a small number of fragmentary fossils.

Babez for Breakfast

"As for the album title, it is an ironic answer to the question of whether monsters eat babies for breakfast or not. We twisted the final letter ‘s’ to a ‘z’, which changed the pronunciation. With this twist we wanted to state that this album is not as serious as Deadache," said frontman Mr. Lordi., The recording of the album started on 16 February 2010 at WireWorld Studio in Nashville, USA. The band had 44 demos to choose from, of which 15 made the final cut. According to Mr. Lordi, "We are very proud of this album. We went back to the basics and beyond. The new material is more rocking and melodic, but we have not forgotten horror elements either.

Paleontology in Maryland

Also conspicuous is the absence of many kinds of animal that are common in the Pleistocene deposits in the United States like bison, camels, giant ground sloths, musk oxen relatives of modern elephants, and saber teeth. The Lenape or Delaware people have lived in Maryland and told myths likely influenced by the theropod dinosaur tracks common in the area. They believed that in the early days of earth's history the land and sea were full of Monsters. The grandfather of these Monsters was the most terrifying Monster of all and menaced all living creatures. He was so huge that when he crossed the mountains he left footprints in solid rock.

Paleontology in Missouri

A Missouri Osage tradition tells the story of an incursion by a diverse group of monsters into the area. The monsters marched along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers from the east. Their arrival infuriated the local wildlife, who grew so violent that the natives were afraid to go out hunting. The animals and monsters waged a colossal war in a valley near a bluff called Rocky Ridge. After the fighting ended, the monsters continued their journey west. Other battles in the war between the animals and monsters occurred at the Pomme de Terre and Osage Rivers.

His American publisher is Fantagraphics. Jason's work is usually drawn in a minimalist, clean style, influenced by Hergé's ligne claire. His protagonists are usually anthropomorphic animals and/or B-movie monsters. There is little or no talking, and very rarely any captions. Jason's comics frequently refer to other works. For example, Tell Me Something is inspired by Buster Keaton's movies, Frankenstein's Monster and related characters appear in You Can't Get There From Here, and fictionalized versions of Ernest Hemingway and other writers are the protagonists of The Left Bank Gang.


Dark GreenForest GreenKelly Green
The expression "green-eyed monster" was first used by William Shakespeare in Othello: "it is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on." Shakespeare also used it in the Merchant of Venice, speaking of "green-eyed jealousy." Green today is not commonly associated in Europe and the United States with love and sexuality, but in stories of the medieval period it sometimes represented love and the base, natural desires of man. It was the color of the serpent in the Garden of Eden who caused the downfall of Adam and Eve. However, for the troubadours, green was the color of growing love, and light green clothing was reserved for young women who were not yet married.

Robert Oliveri

He starred in an episode of Monsters and then landed the role of Kevin in Edward Scissorhands with Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder. He later starred in an episode of ABC Weekend Special as Ryan in Ralph S. Mouse. The next year, Oliveri reprised his role as Nick Szalinski in 1992's Honey, I Blew Up the Kid. His character had matured since the previous film and took a liking to Mandy Park, which was Keri Russell's film debut. Oliveri was asked to reprise his role as Szalinski again two years later for the 3D science fiction film, Honey, I Shrunk the Audience, that opened at Epcot in 1994 and closed in 2010.
