The 82nd Annual Academy Awards

The 82nd Annual Academy Awards

The Academy Awards have been a monumental celebration in the industry of motion pictures for 82 annual ceremonies now. The impact that reigns from even being nominated for an award, let alone winning one, can move actors, actresses, producers, directors, or studios into an entirely new level of recognition. Being tied into an Oscar consideration has brought some of the relatively unknown into super-stardom.

For the past century of film and broadcast, nothing has had more of an effect upon the success of those involved in the movie industry, more than the epic Oscar nomination and victory. Only the most excellent of the realm are invited to participate in this catastrophic award show. This year, for 2010, we expect no less than perfection.

The celebration is slated to take place on March 7th of 2010, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. Slated to be televised in the United States on ABC networks. Actors Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin are assigned to host the awards ceremony. Martin will make his appearance as host for the third time, after previously presiding over the 73rd and 75th ceremonies, while Baldwin will host the show for the first time.

The official nominees for the 82nd annual Academy Awards will be announced live on Tuesday, February 2, 2010 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California, by Tom Sherak, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) and a guest announcer.

New this year, is an upgrade from the usual five Best Picture nominations, to ten total Best Picture nominations. This is an increase that will allow many other popular films to be considered for the "Best Picture" award, which is always the "Main Event" so to speak of the ceremony. A bit of fact chasing here, is that from 1932 to 1943 there were ten nominations for "Best Picture" (in 1934 and 1935, in fact, there were 12), but for the ceremony honoring 1944's best movies, the Academy switched that number to the current five which has held up until this year. The increase is due to the extremely large amount of successful box office films which were premiered in 2009.

We certainly expect this years ceremony to be high profile. 2009 was a record breaking year for the entertainment industry, with many films such as Transformers 2, District 9, Avatar, Terminator Salvation, Star Trek, Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, Inglourious Basterds, Up, Public Enemies, Twilight: New Moon, and many others, all reaching an extreme amount of international box office sales.

Considering the unprecedented and success of 2009, it's looked back upon by critics as one of the best years in motion pictures in nearly a decade, even while the world economy is struggling. Further showing that if they produce quality films, then people will pay the price to see the films.

One thing is certain, the 82nd annual Academy Awards will be highly rated and viewed all over the world, and it will clarify which of all the great films of 2009, were considered the best by the insiders of Hollywood.

As soon as the nominees are announced, we will post them here on ET Articles, exclusively for our community. Respect to the Oscar award and the Academy Award ceremony, as for many years it's created a dominant showing amongst the best in film, and it's been a breakout leap for so many in Hollywood. Let's only hope that 2010 offers each of us as many great films as 2009 did, and thus far from the way this year has kicked off, it's looking more and more like it will be another major year for highly anticipated films.

Internet Error Codes

Internet Error Codes

Sometimes when you try to visit a Web site, instead of seeing what you expected, you see an error code. Some of these codes may be familiar, but there are a lot that you may have never seen. To give you a greater understanding of these errors, here is a list of the most popular codes.

As a rule of thumb, the first thing you should if you get an error is make sure that you have typed in the URL or page address correctly.

Bad request 400
The request could not be understood by the server due to bad syntax. You should not repeat the request without modifications.

Unauthorized 401
The creators of a Web page may want only certain people have access to that page. You should only retry the request if you know that you have authorization.

PaymentRequired 402
This message gives a specification of charging schemes which are acceptable. You may retry the request with a suitable ChargeTo header.

Forbidden 403
The request is for something forbidden. Authorization will not help. This status code is commonly used when the server does not wish to reveal exactly why the request has been refused, or when no other response is applicable. (The file needs to be set with "read permissions" for all users.)

Not found 404
The server has not found anything matching what you requested. Make sure that the Web address (URL) that you typed in exactly matches the address you were given. Check that the capitalization matches, spelling, and punctuation, like dots (.) and slashes (/), are correctly placed. Be sure you are using the forward slash (/) and not the backward slash (\).

405 Method Not Allowed
The method specified in the Request-Line is not allowed for the resource identified by the request. The response must include an Allow header containing a list of valid methods for the requested resource.

406 Not Acceptable
The resource identified by the request is only capable of generating response entities which have content characteristics not acceptable according to the accept headers sent in the request.

407 Proxy Authentication Required
This code is similar to 401 (Unauthorized), but indicates that you must first authenticate yourself with the proxy. The proxy must return a Proxy-Authenticate header field (section 14.33) containing a challenge applicable to the proxy for the requested resource. You may repeat the request with a suitable Proxy-Authorization header field (section 14.34). HTTP access authentication is explained in section 11.

408 Request Timeout
The client did not produce a request within the time that the server was prepared to wait. You may repeat the request without modifications at any later time.

409 Conflict
The request could not be completed due to a conflict with the current state of the resource. This code is only allowed in situations where it is expected that the user might be able to resolve the conflict and resubmit the request.

410 Gone
The 410 response is primarily intended to assist the task of web maintenance by notifying the recipient that the resource is intentionally unavailable and that the server owners want remote links to that resource be removed.

411 Length Required
The server refuses to accept the request without a defined Content- Length. The client may repeat the request if it adds a valid Content-Length header field containing the length of the message-body in the request message.

412 Precondition Failed
The precondition given in one or more of the request-header fields evaluated to false when it was tested on the server. This response code allows the client to place preconditions on the current resource metainformation (header field data) and thus prevent the requested method from being applied to a resource other than the one intended.

413 Request Entity Too Large
The server is refusing to process a request because the request entity is larger than the server is willing or able to process. The server may close the connection to prevent the client from continuing the request.

414 Request-URI Too Long
The server is refusing to service the request because the Request-URI is longer than the server is willing to interpret.

415 Unsupported Media Type
The server is refusing to service the request because the entity of the request is in a format not supported by the requested resource for the requested method.

Internal Error 500
The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request. Your request could not be processed due to an internal server error.

Not implemented 501
The server does not support the functionality required to fulfill the request. This is the appropriate response when the server does not recognize the request method and is not capable of supporting it for any resource.

502 Bad Gateway

The server, while acting as a gateway or proxy, received an invalid response from the upstream server it accessed in attempting to fulfill the request.

503 Service Unavailable
The server is currently unable to handle the request due to a temporary overloading or maintenance of the server. The implication is that this is a temporary condition which will be alleviated after some delay. If known, the length of the delay may be indicated in a Retry-After header. If no Retry-After is given, you should handle the response as it would for a 500 response.

504 Gateway Timeout
The server, while acting as a gateway or proxy, did not receive a timely response from the upstream server it accessed in attempting to complete the request.

505 HTTP Version Not Supported
The server does not support, or refuses to support, the HTTP protocol version that was used in the request message. The response should contain an entity describing why that version is not supported and what other protocols are supported by that server.

Warning on harmful hidden fat

Warning on harmful hidden fat

A new survey has indicated that ninety per cent of Irish people are unaware of a significant health risk, visceral fat.

Visceral fat surrounds abdominal organs and can increase the risk of life-threatening diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

The European survey, which included Ireland, included over 12,000 adults who wanted to lose weight.
It showed that 90% of Irish people do not know what visceral fat is but after hearing about the associated risks, 79% said they were more motivated to lose weight.

Waist measurement is regarded as the best clinical indicator of excess visceral fat and therefore the best predictor of risk.
Experts say visceral fat is a stronger predictor of premature death than overall weight.
Steady weight loss with a 5% to 10% decrease in body weight can reduce visceral fat and significantly benefit health.
The study found that of the Irish people surveyed who had previously dieted at New Year, almost half admitted to being unsuccessful.
