Heath Ledger as the Joker: A murderous and psychopathic criminal mastermind who portrays himself as an “agent of chaos” and rises to power by terrorizing Gotham and plunging it into anarchy. However, Nolan had wanted to work with Ledger on a number of projects in the past including unsuccessfully approaching Ledger for the role of Batman in Batman Begins and was agreeable to Ledger’s chaotic interpretation of the character. Throughout the film, the Joker states his desire to upset social order through crime, and comes to define himself by his conflict with Batman. To prepare for the role, Ledger lived alone in a hotel room for a month, formulating the character’s posture, voice, and personality, and kept a diary, in which he recorded the Joker’s thoughts and feelings.

The white bishop can move to any square marked by a white dot or capture the black pawn. Permitted bishop moves History[ edit ] A pre- Staunton bishop The bishop’s predecessor in medieval chess, shatranj originally chaturanga , was the alfil , meaning ” elephant “, which could leap two squares along any diagonal, and could jump over an intervening piece.
As a consequence, each fil was restricted to eight squares, and no fil could attack another. The modern bishop first appeared shortly after in Courier chess. The game is attributed to “India”, then a very vague term. Derivatives of alfil survive in the languages of the two countries where chess was first introduced within Western Europe—Italian alfiere and Spanish alfil.
In Romanian, it is known as “nebun” which refers to a crazy person similarly to the French name “Fou” fool which is most likely derived from “Fou du roi”, a jester. Interestingly, the use of the term in Icelandic predates that of the English language, as the first mentioning of “biskup” in Icelandic texts dates back to the early part of the 14th century, while the 12th-century Lewis Chessmen portray the bishop as an unambiguously ecclesiastical figure.
This has led to some speculations as to the origin of the English use of the term “bishop”.

Story Continued Below This comes as the administration and congressional leaders prepare to unveil a broad-brush tax proposal, weeks ahead of schedule, as a way to pivot from the grinding debate over health care — and to show movement on an issue significant to the business community before Congress adjourns for its August recess. Yet many key outstanding questions remain, including how low the corporate tax rate can go — a major focus of the president who wants it at 15 percent — and what if any tax benefits or breaks lawmakers will need to eliminate to pay for cuts.
These trade-offs are part of what makes tax reform difficult. No businesses, or individuals, like to see any particular tax break eliminated and tend to mobilize when their goodie is threatened. You can unsubscribe at any time. Early on in the administration, Knight and Mnuchin clashed over the type of tax system the U.

Knight and Mnuchin have disagreed more recently and with some frequency over the best way to pay for tax cuts.

White knighting is a social problem that goes far beyond the world of dating.
Louis Stuart Libertas is a young bard traveling along the endless road to self-improvement and recounting his adventures. You can follow him on Twitter. As we begin to formulate a manifesto around the reinvigoration of masculinity , I believe that we, and society as a whole, need to devote a solid plank in our platform to white knight shaming. Simply put, I have come to believe that white knighting is the single biggest problem with modern men. If we are to revive masculinity as a major contributor to fixing the degenerate Western world, white knight shaming must have a significant place in it.
While smartphones and social media greatly enhance attention whoring capabilities, white knights are the buyers of what attention whores sell. We all know that this winter was particularly brutal for the Boston area, which received several feet of snow in very short order. Economic activity shrunk drastically in the city and getting around was a massive inconvenience to everyone. Enter Susan Zalkind, a year-old Tinder user who came up with a brilliant idea — find some chump to shovel out her car from the snow.

Dre, now 50, is sitting on a comfy sofa, fussing with the cuffs of his designer jeans. Thirty years ago, he was producing N.
