Episode 14: A Slight At The Opera
My favorite part of the episode happened at the Dunphy home. Claire has become the babysitter of the family since Joe is born. But she is a bit too busy finding the right way to confront Phil about his golf balls laying around the house, which makes her fall down with almost every move she makes. Luckily Dylan and Haley are around to do the actual babysitting and Dylan is kind of a genius when it comes to babies. Of course Haley has been searching for her purpose in life since she has been kicked out of college and playing a happy family with Dylan starts to look appealing (her face was priceless). Cue for Claire to freak out (which is the most fun part about Claire, if you are honest)! Luckily for her they get in a very weird fight about going out for ice cream. Sorry this part was just a little too weird if you would ask me.

Allison Codi '22, a major in IDEAS (Integrated Degree in Engineering, Arts and Sciences), knows and loves the space where computer science, engineering, and health converge. In this episode, Codi talks with host Joe Buck about her research in COVID-19 forecasting, her love of frisbee (and hatred of stink bugs), and how she views herself as a mentor for women and girls in STEM.
Stay tuned after the episode to hear how student projects have continued remotely since the disruption of COVID-19 and how creative inquiry can help us navigate in a vulnerable, uncertain, chaotic, and ambiguous world.
Once summer rolls around performances move to the Baths of Caracalla outdoor theater. Some of the outstanding 2021 performances here will include an Andrea Bocelli concert, a Cat Stevens concert plus some wonderful operas.
Yet another wonderful Rome Opera House initiative is to share the beauty and magic of opera with a more eclectic audience via an Opera Camion - a traveling opera truck. Last season the truck traveled throughout the Eternal City stopping in various piazze to offer performances. Performances are abbreviated - usually one act - and the cast of characters is limited to about five performers. The side of the truck opens up and becomes a delightful stage. The audience is comprised of locals who bring a seat from home or watch standing. The 2019 summer season included the Barber of Seville, and because of Covid the 2020 summer season was pushed back to 2021; one of the two opera performances will probably be Tosca.

His first order of business was leaving a disturbing threat with Mr. Han in the form of a pillow injected with syringes. Unfortunately, Cha-Young was wrongfully arrested for this deed, which led to Vincenzo helping her prove her innocence after some contemplation over a televised Italian opera.
Were you as shocked as I was with all the things that happened in the fourth episode of Vincenzo? Leave your thoughts in the comments below! And if you missed it, you can view our reactions and review for other episodes here.
The following is a list of episodes from the anime series Monster. The 74-episode anime version of Monster is a faithful adaptation of the entire story. It is mostly recreated shot for shot and scene for scene compared to the original manga. The few subtle differences include short snippets of additional dialogue and slight re-ordering of scenes in places. The series soundtrack is composed by Kuniaki Haishima.
Following the war's conclusion, Toph began to notice that her bracelet would shiver slightly when others around her got emotional. Toph speculated that these people were potential metalbenders, and founded a metalbending academy in Yu Dao, with her first three students being Penga, The Dark One, and Ho Tun. Toph welcomed the other members of Team Avatar to the city while its political status was disputed during the Harmony Restoration Movement. As a teacher, Toph felt the effects of the conflict when Master Kunyo claimed ownership of the academy, as it had once been his firebending dojo. On the day of the battle for Yu Dao, Toph intended to surrender, but changed her mind when her students finally displayed tenacity, and began to metalbend for the first time. Toph participated in the battle by bending underground slides beneath tanks and disabled the vehicles. After peace was made in Yu Dao, many more students enroled at the academy, and she declined an invitation to come to the Fire Naiton with the rest of Team Avatar due to her workload.
Toph attended a banquet in celebration of Yu Dao's new coalition government roughly one year later. She unenthusiastically joined Aang on a trip to the Yue Bay area, where Team Avatar and the Air Acolytes recreating Yangchen's Festival. Toph spurned many of the traditions, as they reminded her of her strict upbringing. When the group reached an industrial town, Toph quickly befriended a young industrialist, Satoru. Though Aang was disheartened to see the polluted environment, Toph opined that the Earthen Fire Refinery was a symbol of international cooperation, similar to Yu Dao. However, Toph was shocked to find that her father was one of the refinery's co-owners. Lao did not admit that Toph was his daughter, and ordered the Rough Rhinos to escort her off the premises, angering Toph, who wished to speak with her father. Toph managed to gain access to the factory grounds, where Lao disavowed with kinship with Toph, and did not react to any of her accomplishments. When Sokka alerted them of the unstable iron mine, Toph stopped the surroundings from crushing her, Katara, and her father and his co-workers. Toph strained herself by keeping up the debris for an unbearably long amount of time, until her students and Aang arrived to help. After being freed from the mine, Toph collapsed in her father's arms. After she learned that Aang intended on destroying the factory, Toph tried to dissuade him, telling him that he was doing so for no reason, but her efforts were cut short by the appearance of General Old Iron. After Aang battled the spirit, Toph thanked him for saving her students and choosing not to destroy the refinery. Her relationship with her father was slowly being mended, and three months later, she helped oversee Satoru's work in the refinery.
In Ba Sing Se, Toph demonstrated an ability to sense even slight vibrations, informing a man they met that she could feel him shaking. Toph was also able to sense when a person was lying by the vibrations of his/her heartbeat and breathing patterns. However, Toph's ability to detect lies was not absolute, as Azula demonstrated when she was easily able to lie without even the slightest physical reaction. However, very few people have the ability to lie while manipulating their breathing and pulse in this way.
Toph was initially designed as a jock-type, bad-mouthing, muscular, sixteen-year-old boy who would act as a foil to Sokka's nerdiness, as revealed by the co-creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko during an interview with Toon Zone. This idea made its way into the unaired pilot episode's opening sequence and as the shadowed earthbender (which was confirmed by the creators to be Toph's "prototype") in the opening sequence. Later on, when the time came closer to the character's debut, the creators pitched about the humor behind a little girl being able to take on all the strong, buff earthbenders, an idea introduced by head writer Aaron Ehasz that was initially rejected by co-creator Konietzko. From this idea which blossomed as a joke and after long discussions, Toph was given her gender and turned into the character that was introduced in the show, ironically becoming one of Bryan's favorite characters. A joke about the prototype later appeared as the actor playing Toph in The Boy in the Iceberg play bore a closer resemblance to the initial design. The original design also greatly influenced the character Bolin in The Legend of Korra.
However, we are faced with a fannish quandary. The challenge of weighing the merits (and demerits) of episodes against each other is hard enough in a single series. How do you do it for multiple series across the decades?
Well, people do that anyway in comparing one series against another, perhaps citing a particular banner episode of their favorite series as evidence that it deserves appropriate Trek cred. This exhaustive list simply takes that exercise to its logical ends.
As with some previous series, an ongoing theme in the series was the "Spend a Penny" card. Each episode featured one question to which the answer was "lavatorial", and the panelist who identified the question by raising the Penny-shaped joker won bonus points. Less official was Stephen's parting last words of notorious or famous individuals.
The following day, Luz helps Camila out at the veterinarian clinic and puts her egg under a heat lamp, hoping it would help it hatch. Shortly before they head out, Luz touches a glyph and it starts to burn slightly. When Luz and her mother arrive home, Hunter tells her he saw Belos and the pair search the Old House to find only a possum. They conclude Belos is not there, but Luz promises Hunter she will keep him safe, saying that he is family now, and they head back to her house. The others are working on their Halloween costumes and Amity suggests she and Luz go as Hecate and Azura respectively. Luz accepts as an Azura movie plays on the television and she focuses on the character of Lucy, who betrays the protagonists, ausing Luz to worry about how her friends would react if they found out she helped Belos. That night, Luz records a video diary stating that she intends to stay on the Human Realm after getting her friends back home, deciding to tell them after the festival. 041b061a72
