  • A roller shutter, roller door or sectional overhead door is a type of door or window shutter consisting of many horizontal slats (or sometimes bars or web systems) hinged together. The door is raised to open it and lowered to close it. On large doors, the action may be motorized.
  • This is a door made of a number of narrow steel flats joined together horizontally. They are fitted into vertical guides at either end which allow them to slide up and down. The narrow slats enable the door to be rolled up around a tube at the top.
  • A set of connected things or parts forming a complex whole, in particular
  • A set of organs in the body with a common structure or function
  • (system) a group of independent but interrelated elements comprising a unified whole; "a vast system of production and distribution and consumption keep the country going"
  • (system) instrumentality that combines interrelated interacting artifacts designed to work as a coherent entity; "he bought a new stereo system"; "the system consists of a motor and a small computer"
  • (system) (physical chemistry) a sample of matter in which substances in different phases are in equilibrium; "in a static system oil cannot be replaced by water on a surface"; "a system generating hydrogen peroxide"
  • A set of things working together as parts of a mechanism or an interconnecting network

Haunted Castle (3-D) (Large Format)
Haunted Castle (3-D) (Large Format)
A young musician is summoned to his mother's castle in accordance with her final wishes. Upon his arrival, Johnny quickly discovers that things are not as they appear. The castle begins to come alive as materializing spirits lead him to Mephisto (voiced by Harry Shearer), the ghoulish henchman to Mr. D (also Harry Shearer), who makes Johnny a tantalizing offer. The same offer that his mother accepted over twenty years earlier: surrender your soul in exchange for fame and fortune. Experience a whirling visual thrill ride as Johnny explores the underworld of the castle to the explosive climax where Johnny confronts Mr. D and fights to free his mother/s spirit.

Without question, 3-D technology has come a long way since the days of red and green cardboard glasses, and Haunted Castle offers delectable proof. This half-hour digitally animated feature--also available in The Ultimate 3-D Collection, which includes two other films and the H3D "i-glasses" hardware needed to generate the 3-D imaging--tells the story of a young rock star facing the Faustian offer to sell his soul for fame and fortune.
The tale is a foil for the effects, of course, but a decent foil with above-par music and excellent animation and effects, from torches to trees, gargoyles to guitars. The sound is terrific, enhancing the sense of depth with a seamless DTS surround-sound mix that works well even in headphones. --Michael Mikesell

Camera Model Name: Canon EOS 5D Lens: EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Tv (Shutter Speed): 1/500 Av (Aperture Value): 8.0 Metering: Evaluative Metering ISO Speed: 400 Focal Length: 400.0 mm Flash: Off ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DAY 12 Distance & Time: By car - 230 km / 9 hrs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Stop at the last biggest settlement prior to our destination to make a few phone calls from the public booth and Ankur is very keen to buy a few (music) cassettes for the car music system, which was not available in Kargil market. The cassettes that are already there in the dashboard of this hired car, is not to our taste. With very limited choice he could only pick up three of them, while my phone calls have been long over. Soon leaving the settlement behind we drive across the plains. Was engrossed in the vista on the left, when Ankur very gently parks the car in the middle of the road (with rare traffic, it is not a major problem). He points at the European Roller (Coracias garrulus semenowi) perched on the electric pole wire, certainly impressed with his spotting ability and knowledge of birds. This avian species is a rare passage migrant in Ladakh and can be encountered at elevations below 4, 000 m / 13, 123 ft. Mostly seen in dry open grassy landscape, perching quietly on dead branches, poles, and telephone wires from where it hunts sometimes in the air but mainly fly diving to the ground to catch its prey. It is rather shy and suspicious bird. When directly approached it moves to another perch, usually not too far, in sluggish, crow like wing strokes. So, after getting down from the car, cradling the camera in one hand sort of crawl to sneak in for a close shot. The European Roller is sub divided into two species C.g. garrulus and C.g. semenowi, what we see belongs to the later sub-species, which have slightly paler plumage than the former. Both sexes look alike, approximate length 31 cm., is known as Kujuck in Ladakh. Feeds on fruits, insects, reptiles, small rodents, birds and amphibians. During courtship the male performs breathtaking aerial displays, rising up to 50 m / 164 ft. and more to nosedive in twisting and rolling acrobatic movements - at times followed by the female. It nests in tree, cliff or rock holes, to which bits of grass, straw or feathers are added. Clutch consists of 3-6 white eggs, which hatch 17-20 days later. Eggs are laid at one-day intervals, thus in case of food shortage only the older nestlings get fed. The chicks are blind and featherless when hatch. Though there is no record of breeding in Ladakh. C. g. semenowi breeds in Iraq and Iran, east of Kashmir and north of Turkmenistan, south Kazakhstan and northwest of China. The European Roller overwinters in two distinct regions of Africa, from Senegal east of Cameroon, and from Ethiopia west of Congo and south of South Africa. Classified as Near Threatened (NT) by the IUCN Red List of 2007. Threats include persecution during migration, are shot down for food and scarcity of food available in open fields and farms due to pesticide use. ================================================================== Note: Grainy background is intentional. ==================================================================

Stores, ex-75120, Class 307 DTCOL A Propelling Control Vehicle (PCV) is a type of British railway carriage for carrying mail. They were converted from Class 307 driving trailers and have a cab at one end. This allows mail trains to be propelled at low speed, with the locomotive at the rear of the train being driven from the PCV. Forty-two PCVs were converted by Hunslet-Barclay in Kilmarnock from 1994 to 1996. The rebuilding work including removal of the windows and slam-doors, the fitting of roller shutter doors, and modernisation of the cab. The vehicles were given the TOPS code NAA and numbered 94300–94327 and 94331–94345. The first two vehicles converted were prototypes, and were extensively tested to iron out any problems. The subsequent 40 vehicles incorporated modifications as a result of this testing. At the same time these vehicles were converted, the Class 47/7 locomotives that hauled mail trains were modified to be able to work in push-pull mode with the PCVs. When first converted the vehicles were used by the Rail Express Systems parcels sector of British Rail. They were painted in Rail Express Systems red/grey livery with light blue flashes. PCVs were marshalled at either end of mail trains that worked into London termini, which removed the need for the locomotive to run round the train at its destination. Trains were propelled only at low speed, not for long distances. In 1996, Rail Express Systems was sold to EWS, who continued to operate mail trains on behalf of Royal Mail. PCVs were used on trains between London and Norwich, Plymouth, Bristol, Swansea, Newcastle and Glasgow. PCVs were also used on Travelling Post Office trains from London to Plymouth, Newcastle, Norwich, Carlisle and Glasgow. The two prototype PCVs, nos. 94300/1, were non-standard. Consequently, they were used as standard mail coaches on a new high-speed mail train from Walsall to Inverness, painted in EWS maroon/gold livery and renumbered 95300/1. In early 2004, EWS lost the contract to transport mail. As a result, all PCVs except 95300/1 have been withdrawn from service, pending new traffic, sale or scrapping.
