The film follows Bond's mission to find two NATO atomic bombs stolen by SPECTRE, which holds the world for ransom of £100 million in diamonds under its threat to destroy an unspecified metropolis in either the United Kingdom or the United States (later revealed to be Miami). The search leads Bond to the Bahamas, where he encounters Emilio Largo, the card-playing, eyepatch-wearing SPECTRE Number Two. Backed by CIA agent Felix Leiter and Largo's mistress, Domino Derval, Bond's search culminates in an underwater battle with Largo's henchmen. The film's complex production comprised four different units and about a quarter of the film comprises underwater scenes. Thunderball was the first Bond film shot in widescreen Panavision and the first to have a running time of over two hours.
With huge practical effects-driven set-pieces and extravagant locations, Tenet is a must-watch for fans of the Craig era of 007 films despite the far heavier science-fiction elements of its plot. Many film fans have called for Christopher Nolan to take on the Bond franchise in earnest as its influence on some of his action-thriller movies, especially his hugely popular Batman trilogy, is quite evident. Tenet is the closest that Nolan has come so far to producing an out-and-out take on a Bond film, with John David Washington's secret agent embarking on a high-concept mission to prevent a world-ending plot involving time manipulation.
In Atomic Blonde, Charlize Theron plays secret agent Lorraine Broughton, who's sent to Berlin and finds herself thrown into the middle of the Cold War on a mission to find out who murdered her colleague and to recover an important list. The bare-knuckle brutality of the action scenes is the best testament to Theron's commitment to the action-heavy role, which sees the superspy showing off their Bond-like skills as both a lover and a fighter. As it's adapted from a graphic novel, the movie is a lot more visually stylized than the James Bond franchise ever is, but that creativity spills over into the action sequences and doesn't just linger in the backdrops.
The 00 Section of MI6 is considered the secret service's elite. A 00 (typically read "Double O" and denoted in Fleming's novels by the letters "OO" rather than the digits "00") is a field agent that holds a licence to kill in the field, at their discretion, to complete any mission. Standard mandatory retirement age is 45 though various writers including Ian Fleming, Sebastian Faulks and John Gardner have contradicted this as a matter of Poetic License and several actors who have portrayed Bond on film have been older than 45 at the time of playing the character. Although Fleming only mentioned five 00 agents, others have been added over the years across various franchise media.
Perhaps no movement received greater impetus atthe hands of our Church leaders in the General Conferenceat Washington than did our contemplatededucational enterprises. Bishop Holsey's visit to theGeneral Conference of the Methodist EpiscopalChurch, South, had seemingly so stirred that Churchthat they decided to do something in a tangible wayto assist us in establishing schools where young mencan prepare for the ministry and young womencan fit themselves as teachers. Their General Conferenceauthorized its bishops to appoint a Commissionerof Education, together with three trustees, whoshould work in harmony with such a number from ourChurch in any worthy move to found a school orschools for our denomination. Accordingly, on August29, 1882, at the call of Bishop Pierce, all of ourbishops, with distinguished men from the Church,South, met in the First Methodist Church of Atlanta,Ga., and discussed things educational. A board oftrustees was formed; the school at Jackson, Tenn.,already in an embryonic state, was to receive aid; anda school was located at Augusta, Ga. This school wasafterwards named Payne Institute, in honor of Dr.Uriah Payne, who endowed it with $25,000. It hashad nearly one hundred graduates; with the endowmentthe property is valued at $46,000; and G. W.Walker, D.D., has been its honored, faithful, andscholarly president from its establishment even up tothis time.
THERE were no very important movements in theChurch in 1893, other than the discussions that weregoing on through the official organ on questions thatwere expected to engage the attention of the GeneralConference of 1894. The death of Bishop Miles andthe spread of the Connection led a conservative elementto believe that two additional bishops were necessaryto assist in the episcopal labors of the Church;at the same time there were others who insisted uponthe election of three. Quite a number of names werementioned in connection with the office, but the threemost frequently named were Robert S. Williams,Elias Cottrell, and a third man whose name it is notnecessary to mention. Williams, having roundedout four years of great success at Columbia, S. C., isserving most acceptably at Augusta, Ga.; while Cottrellis faithfully discharging the duties of Commissionerof Education. At this time there were withinthe bounds of our Connection a number of able men,many of whom, though young, by reason of their zealand the favorable results attending their efforts, werestamping themselves upon the very heart of theChurch. Samuel B. Wallace, at Israel Church, inWashington, had earned the reputation of an earnest,eloquent expounder of the Truth; R. E. Hart hadshaken Sydney Park Church in a great revival;Robert T. Brown, who had completed classical, theological,and medical courses at Central TennesseeCollege, was making an excellent record as a presidingelder; and R. A. Carter, one of the graduatesof Payne Institute, and one of the most active andpromising young men of the Georgia Conference,was doing a commendable work at Barnesville. Mentionmight be made of N. F. Haygood, the revivalist,and G. C. Taylor, the devout preacher, both of Georgia,who were doing much to build up the cause ofChrist. In all the Conferences were able men whowere doing much to save souls and expand our Methodism.In the fall of this year delegates were electedto the General Conference by the Annual Conferences.
Everything considered, our past has been glorious.The forces and agencies that have been utilized in thedevelopment of our Zion will now be used to greateradvantage. We have better material with which towork than we ever had before. The demand for aneducated ministry is being satisfied as rapidly aspossible; and our schools, by reason of being betterequipped, are doing a work to-day that they couldnot do before. With our institutions of learning preparingyoung men for the ministry; with our itinerantranks being yearly increased with proficient, qualifiedmen; and with our mission funds augmented, bywhich it is possible to strengthen our stakes and extendour borders, our Church should achieve greaterthings for Christ and the race.
Section five of the majority report is so unusual andremarkable that the author deems it worthwhile totarry with it a while, with the hope that in years tocome it will be impossible for the character of menwho recommended its adoption in 1922 to even considersuch a recommendation again. The North AlabamaConference was entitled to twelve clerical delegatesand twelve lay delegates. It had seven presidingelders' districts. If the four lay delegates from theJasper District were illegally elected and for thatreason had to be thrown out by the Annual Conference,that act could in no way effect the genuineness of theelection or violate its legality. The remaining lay delegates,with the exception, perhaps, of one person, saweye to eye. Therefore, the votes of the lay delegatesfrom this district were not needed for a successfulexecution of any plans the Conference might havedesired to execute. If, then, there were politics involvedin the election of lay delegates in a missionaryconvention to an Annual Conference, there were nopolitics involved when the Conference denied themtheir seats. 2b1af7f3a8
