Amsterdam: the sex and drugs capital of the world, where weed is legal and smoked alongside coffee in one of the city's many koffiehuises. It's Mike's stag-do - one final weekend of debauchery before marrying - and along with four of his friends, he intends to paint the town red. Unfortunately, they're not the only ones eager to paint the town red; six evil hamsters escape the delivery-truck and stumble upon a contaminated batch of space-cake. With the euphoria they experience comes a side-effect none of them could have anticipated: The hamsters start to grow. Hamsterdamned! is the action-packed and comical tale of gigantic rodents and sex-midgets, of one-legged prostitutes and inept Dutch policemen, of camaraderie and one man's fight to stay alive so he can marry the woman of his dreams. 1.

A collection of four erotic stories with mixed themes including lesbian, ménage, and sex with strangers. 'The Librarian' by Eva Hore: A young woman returns early to her shared apartment, to find her scantily clad roommate preparing for a mysterious night-out. Where does a Librarian go after a day in the stacks? 'Wreck-Her' by Lynn Lake: A business woman is unexpectedly delayed as her company car breaks-down, deep in the sun-parched Manitoba prairie. With no cell phone signal and the soaring heat of the surroundings rising, desperation rapidly begins to set in. Help soon arrives in the form of a tow truck that stops to offer assistance. After thoroughly appraising the situation, the truck driver is soon ready to dispense a unique form of roadside assistance that ultimately proves much to the woman’s delight. 'Mixed Blessings' by Phoebe Grafton: Two friends are in need of temporary relief from their respective husbands. With one husband too demanding and the other too languid, both wives decide that a weekend exchange is the best tonic. A plan is hatched, and after a night out together is put into effect, as door keys are exchanged for each other’s home and husband. 'Maggie' by Kay JayBee: Curiosity gets the better of Maggie, as she follows John and Peter, two well-to-do gentlemen from the village deep into the woods. Her world is soon turned upside down when she witnesses both men indulging in a covert act of carnal pleasure, an act which in her world carries a penalty of eternal damnation. 1. Language: English.

From the start, Kerry Bishop anticipated danger: She expected unimaginable fear. In a terrifying race to save nine children, she prepared for the fight of her life. But she wasn’t prepared for a passion almost as dangerous as the mission she had undertaken. At the first, Linc O’Neil appeared to be exactly the kind of man Kerry needed: strong, ruthless and definitely too drunk to care about helping her steal a truck to get past the guards. Then she discovered her mistake. Linc was not a hardened mercenary; the heavy gear he carried was not guns but cameras. She had hijacked a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist. Now he was their last hope. Dependent on a stranger, Kerry refused to let unexpected desire complicate their mission. If Linc had the mistaken impression that she was a woman of the church, she was not about to correct him. Certainly, it kept him at arm’s length, which was just where she wanted this man who, despite his bad attitude and constant stream of threats, was their one chance for survival through fifty miles of treacherous jungle. And survival was all they could think about. But if they succeeded, what then? Could Kerry tell him the truth: that she was no more a woman sworn to chastity than she was immune to the powerful effect he had on her? That she desired him more and more? If freedom came, would they be free to love? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Renee Raudman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/003261/bk_brll_003261_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Ladies' Night is a non-stop rollercoaster ride of sheer nerve rattling terror, previously deemed too violent for mass-market publication. In this modern tale of the ages-old battle of the sexes carried to the extreme, Jack Ketchum again provides listeners with an excursion into horror as relentless as a John Woo film. Tom Braun and his wife, Susan, aren't exactly a picturesque couple. Thus it comes as no surprise that Tom continually spends late evenings in bars and cheats on his wife. Unfortunately, their son, Andy, is caught in the middle of his parent's childish banter and family chaos. One life-altering evening turns this family's, along with most of New York's, perceptions on the nuclear family and male/female relationships upside down. When a tanker trunk with "Ladies Inc." emblazoned on the side crashes in a quiet area in New York, an area it doesn't have authorization to be in, it liberally spills its contents all over the road and into the surrounding atmosphere. The local authorities deem the contents of the spill to be safe, based merely on the assumption that products coming from a women's label are more than likely benign. Moreover, the smell emanating from the spill is one of sweet cherry, similar to lollipops, which must of course be harmless if not favorable. This aforementioned assumption proves fatally incorrect. The chemical load the truck was hauling procures a discomfiting, bestial effect in women, forcing them to savagely attack males in their vicinity - be they former friend or foe. Tom, while at a local bar, absorbs the evening's strange turn of events with traumatizing clarity as he witnesses first hand the metamorphosis of surrounding women into gruesomely instinctual brutes and mantis-like predators. He must get home to his son Andy, who is currently alone with his wife, Susan - before it is too late. (A multicast production.) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anthony Mendez.

AZ31B Magnesium alloy is one of the lightest metallic materials used for structural applications in automobile industries. AA 2014-T6 Aluminum alloys are not possible to be welded by gas welding techniques due to its poor weldability. If this alloy needs to be welded by fusion and resistance welding, it requires special techniques and hence not economical. It is used for truck body and in aircraft structure. Friction stir welding technique is most suitable for welding AA 2014-T6 Aluminum Alloy. AA 6061-T6 Aluminum Alloy possesses excellent mechanical properties in addition to good corrosion resistance due to which this alloy is commonly used for commercial applications like in transportation, construction and in naval vessels manufacturing. Dissimilar materials (AA 2014-T6 and AA 6061-T6) possess good strength, light weight and good corrosion properties and find applications in automobiles, marines, defense and aircraft etc. The present work was carried out to investigate the effect of process parameters (i.e. rotational speed, welding speed, tool material, tool tilt angle and D/d ratio) on mechanical properties of Aluminum alloy 2014-T6, Aluminum alloy 6061-T6 and AZ31B Mg alloy.
In this text, a framework that allows a layperson to transfer skills to a simulated robot is developed. The simulated robot is played by a simulated truck with a trailer. The elements that make up the framework are imitation-based learning and primitives that describe the robot s motions. The skill transfer is accomplished using imitation learning where the demonstrated movements are mapped to a set of primitives, which are combined in a desired sequence to implement novel skills. In this monograph, imitation technology is developed in a simple two-dimensional world of a truck. Enabling technologies for this simple world will be very similar to the technologies that will enable manufacturing, assembly, and maintenance as well as service robots to utilize imitation learning. Creating a framework to transfer skills to robots that could be used by lay people would have a tremendous effect on our everyday lives. The effect would be similar to the effect that software applications for PCs had on our society.
Axial load carrying capacity bored pile of a typical bridge is calculated. Different methods namely Meyerhof's, Vesic, Janbu's and AASHTO methods are used in this regard. A general purpose finite element program (STAAD Pro. software) has been used for the calculation of pier load resulting from wheel load and lane load. HS 20-44 truck loads are considered here as designed live load. The total vertical load is calculated by summing the dead load, wheel load and lane load. The soil test report prepared by Dhaka Water Development Board is used to determine the various parameters needed for calculating pile capacity. The variables considered for calculating the capacity of axially loaded pile are critical depth, loosening effect of soil, the position of ground water table and also the scour depth. Here factor of safety 4 has been used for Meyerhof's, 3 for Vesic and Janbu's method and 4 for AASHTO method. After obtaining the capacity of axially loaded pile by these methods, the adequacy of that pile has been checked by comparing with the total vertical load transmitted to the pile.
