(SPOILERS FOR SERIES END) Requiem for Lelouch vi Britannia, 99th Emperor of the Holy Britannian Empire Anime: Code Geass Song: Viva La Vida Artist: Coldplay (For high-quality download link, please shoot me a PM. I recommend you watch that version, because I've made some adjustments to the ending. If you like this vid, check out my others and send me suggestions on what to make next!) I used to rule the world Seas would rise when I gave the word Now in the morning I sleep alone Sweep the streets I used to own. I used to roll the dice Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes Listen as the crowd would sing: "Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!" One minute I held the key Next the walls were closed on me And I discovered that my castles stand Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand. I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing Roman Cavalry choirs are singing Be my mirror, my sword and shield My missionaries in a foreign field For some reason I can't explain Once you go there was never, never an honest word That was when I ruled the world. It was the wicked and wild wind Blew down the doors to let me in Shattered windows and the sound of drums People couldn't believe what I'd become. Revolutionaries wait For my head on a silver plate Just a puppet on a lonely string Oh who would ever want to be king? I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing Roman Cavalry choirs are singing Be my mirror, my sword and shield My missionaries in a foreign field For some reason I can't explain I know Saint Peter won't call my name Never an honest word But that was when I ruled the world. I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing Roman Cavalry choirs are singing Be my mirror, my sword and shield My missionaries in a foreign field For some reason I can't explain I know Saint Peter won't call my name Never an honest word But that was when I ruled the world.

The challenge takes place in Bocas del Toro Province, Panama for broadcast on MTV Networks in the fall of 2008. The format will differ from the more recent incarnations of the series in that it will involve fasting to some degree in a Survivor inspired setting on an island in Panama. The cast was told not to bring electrically powered items such as blow dryers and curling irons as they would not be of use once on location. Principle filming is slated to take place from June 10th through July 11th, 2008. The cast departed through the major Latin American hubs of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and Miami International Airport on June 8th, 2008 to Tocumen International Airport, Panama where they boarded a small commuter aircraft en route to their final island destination.

The Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach was a good race and a nice parade lap for the final event of the American open-wheel racing series known simply as ChampCar. In this video taken from the press conference that featured the podium finishers of this final race featuring the rules, equipment, teams and drivers of the ChampCar World Series (CCWS), Australian Will Power, Swiss/Frenchman Franck Montagny, and Mexican born Mario Dominguez share their reflections and insights. The CCWS was an American rules sanctioning motorsports series which stressed racing in venues that optimized driver skill on temporary street courses, airport runways, closed road circuits, in North America and international localities. The press conference was conducted by the Fred Nation, Executive Vice-President of Communications of the now ruling sanctioning organization, the Indy Racing League. The IRL will stage the Grand Prix of Long Beach in 2009 and beyond for at least the next ten years. The conference opens with third place finisher, Mario Dominguez -- Pacific Coast Motorsports. Mario discusses the car, the team and the fact that he had not been in an open-wheel racing machine in over six months. Second place finisher, former Formula One driver Franck Montagny, in his first Champ Car start ... and finish reflects on why he chose this series to compete in. Race winner, Will Power, who started third in the 20-car field discussed the importance of his start.
Danica Patrick Honors Long Beach Venue With First Stateside Conference Danica Patrick, through the arrangement of the management of the Indy Racing League, held a news conference at 4:15pm PT in the press conference room at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. An honorable gesture to have the woman who became the first-ever female motorsports driver to win a race in a professional open-wheel automobile racing series. This conference was held just 15 hours after Danica won the IRL race at Twin Ring Motegi, Japan and helps to strengthen the move toward unification of the two American Racing series (the merge of ChampCar into IndyCar) The conference was held immediately after the ChampCar World Series podium winners conference and interview at the end of this, the final race featuring the rules, equipment, teams and drivers of the CCWS. Thanks to the Indy Racing League for making this happen ... a act! In the video, Danica discusses the final laps strategy and the end of the race, celebrating, and the team day planned for AGR at the American Honda facility in Torrance, California tomorrow.

http://www.aviationlive.org Online Aviation Pics,Videos and Forum Red Bull Air Race World Series, established in 2003 and created by Red Bull, is an international series of air races in which competitors have to navigate a challenging obstacle course in the sky in the fastest possible time. Pilots fly individually against the clock and have to complete tight turns through a slalom course consisting of specially designed pylons, known as "air gates". The races are held mainly on airfields, but also above cities, sea or natural wonders. They are accompanied by a supporting program of show flights. Races are flown on weekends following three training rounds and one qualification round. The events generally attract large crowds and are broadcast, both live and taped, in many nations. Currently 8 pilots compete head to head against each other in an elimination bracket format. In the head to head competition, the pilots each take a turn at completing the course in the fastest time possible without committing any rule violations. The race winner is the competitor who survives the single elimination bracket and is victorious in the final round. Pilots race on a twisted course with five groups of specially erected "spinnaker" pylon obstacles. Flying against the rules results in disqualification or in a time penalty added to the flying time. The first six ranked pilots of each race leg get points, six for the winner down to one for sixth place. The air racer with the most points at the end of the series becomes Red Bull Air Race world champion. The 2005, 2006 and 2007 series have been won by two Americans, Mike Mangold, Kirby Chambliss, and then Mangold most recently
I decided to honor the relationships the Doctor has with his companions throughout the new series by creating this video to the song 'Rule The World' by Take That. The companions I have included are Rose Tyler, Madame de Pompadour, Donna Noble, Martha Jones, Joan Redfern and Sally Sparrow. The only companion that I have failed to include, although had wanted to, is Sarah Jane Smith as I could not get a hold of that particular episode. Please don't let that affect your oppinion of this video as I think the lyrics go perfectly and I only hope that you agree. PLease let me know what you think with a comment or a rate, I would love to hear. Thank you for watching.

While it might seem that air racing is all about breaking the rules of flight, there are some strict guidelines about how a pilot can and cannot fly in the Red Bull Air Race World Series.

Rules of the Red Bull Air Race World Series...
Baseball - Gordon G.G. Gebert - Spring Training. By German film-maker Heike Hektik Hoffman. Baseball is a sport played between two teams usually of nine players each. It is a bat-and-ball game in which a pitcher throws (pitches) a hard, fist-sized, leather-covered ball toward a batter on the opposing team. The batter attempts to hit the baseball with a tapered cylindrical bat, made of wood (as required in professional baseball) or a variety of other materials (as allowed in many nonprofessional games). A team scores runs only when batting, by advancing its players—primarily via hits—counterclockwise past a series of four markers called bases arranged at the corners of a ninety-foot square, or "diamond." The game, played without time restriction, is structured around nine segments called innings. In each inning, both teams are given the opportunity to bat and score runs; a team's half-inning ends when three outs are recorded against that team. Baseball on both the professional and amateur levels is popular in North America, Central America, parts of South America, parts of the Caribbean, and East Asia. The modern version of the game developed in North America beginning in the eighteenth century. The consensus of historians is that it evolved from earlier bat-and-ball games, such as rounders, brought to the continent by British and Irish immigrants. By the late nineteenth century, baseball was widely recognized as the national sport of the United States. The game is sometimes referred to as hardball to differentiate it from similar sports such as softball. In the United States, professional Major League Baseball teams are divided into the National League (NL) and American League (AL). Each league has three divisions: East, West, and Central. Every year, the champion of Major League Baseball is determined by playoffs culminating in the World Series. Four teams make the playoffs from each league: the three division leaders, plus one wild card team with the best record among the remaining teams in the league. In the National League, the pitcher is required to bat, per the traditional rules. In the American League, there is a tenth player, a designated hitter, who bats for the pitcher. Each major league team has a "farm system" of minor league teams at various levels. These teams allow younger players to gain experience against opponents with similar levels of skill.
Jamie Gold, a former Hollywood talent agent turned television producer came from a card playing family. His most dominating performance was in the 2006 World Series of Poker where he outlasted over eight thousand players in an eight-day marathon to win $12,000,000.
This is where the legend began, the first series of ABC TVs 'Race Around the World' in 1997. This is John Safran's first story from Japan.
