Somewhere In TimeMovie 1980

Somewhere in Time is a 1980 American romantic fantasy drama film from Universal Pictures, directed by Jeannot Szwarc, and starring Christopher Reeve, Jane Seymour, and Christopher Plummer. It is a film adaptation of the 1975 novel Bid Time Return by Richard Matheson, who also wrote the screenplay.

We all know what it's like to wish to be something or somewhere else -- to fantasize. An opinion as much as an escape, a fantasy may be touching, amusing, dangerous, or instructive -- and URsula LeGuin's "The Beginning Place" has all these qualities.

There's a time-honored history in Hollywood of co-stars falling in love both onscreen and off, but, in real life, no happy endings are guaranteed. In the 1980s, Jane Seymour fell in love with another actor while they were working together, but it ended suddenly and sadly. While their secret romance was brief, the Dr. Quinn star says her heartbreak is apparent in the film. It also led to a long-time friendship.

In 1980, the actor starred in Somewhere in Time alongside the late Christopher Reeve. The movie is about a man named Richard, who travels from 1980 to 1912 to find a woman, Elise, who he knows he's meant to fall for. The two characters are unable to stay happily together in the end, but their souls remain connected.

The evidence adduced below tended to show that prior to the collision forming the basis of his negligent homicide conviction, appellant was employed as a dump truck driver. Now he is unable to pay insurance premiums, even if insurable, and thus is not employable to drive a commercial vehicle. Appellant is presently employed by his brothers at the rate of approximately $200.00 per month for pumping gas and occasionally driving a tractor. He has no other outside source of income and owns no tangible or material possessions other than his clothes. Appellant had borrowed some $3,500.00 from his family for legal fees and still owed trial counsel some $2,000.00. It was stipulated that the cost of an appellate transcript including a transcription of the court reporter's notes would be somewhere between $2,700.00 and $3,100.00. Appellant made an attempt to borrow funds to perfect an appeal, but was turned down given his lack of collateral to secure such a loan.

From 1970 to 1975 Arnold won six Mr. Olympia titles. After the sixth win, he retired to focus on his then-burgeoning movie career (which includes hits like Conan The Barbarian, Twins, and the Terminator series). He moved to greener pastures, or so it seemed. In 1980 Arnold shocked fans and competitors alike when he announced, the day before the Mr. Olympia contest, that he was making a comeback. (2)

This paper considers the impact of the tax treatment of U.S. military contractors. Prior to the early 1980s, taxpayers were permitted to use the completed contract method of accounting to defer taxation of profits earned on long term contracts. Legislation passed in 1982, 1986 and 1987 required that at least 70 percent of the profits earned on long-term contracts be taxed as accrued, thereby significantly reducing the tax benefits associated with long term contracting. Comparing contracts that were ineligible for the tax benefits associated with long term contracting with those that were eligible, it appears that between 1981 and 1989 the duration of U.S. Department of Defense contracts shortened by an average of between one and 3.5 months, or somewhere between 6 and 29 percent of average contract length. This pattern suggests that the tax benefits associated with long term contracts promoted artificial contract lengthening prior to passage of the 1986 Act. The evidence is consistent with a behavioral model in which the Department of Defense ignores the federal income tax consequences of its procurement actions, thereby indirectly rewarding contractors who are able to benefit from tax expenditures of various types.

June 1980 saw the end of the English classes I taught sometimes early in the morning, in the long stretches of the afternoon, or late at night. It had been an erratic pattern, shoehorned around people's working lives or children's afterschool hours.

At the beginning of the 1980s, before HIV had been identified as the cause of AIDS, the infection was thought to only affect specific groups, such as gay men in developed countries and people who inject drugs. The HIV virus was first isolated by Dr Françoise Barré-Sinoussi and Dr Luc Montagnier in 1983 at the Institut Pasteur. In November that year, WHO held the first meeting to assess the global AIDS situation and initiated international surveillance. It was then that the global health community understood that HIV could also spread between heterosexual people, through blood transfusions, and that infected mothers could transmit HIV to their babies.

Condoms have been a basic but critical tool in prevention. In many communities of men who have sex with men, and sex workers, awareness-raising meant that the use of condoms became the norm. However, this messaging is not as strongly pushed now, and a new generation is growing up without being fully aware of the benefits of using condoms, and many countries have shortages. The introduction of harm-reduction programmes (including needle and syringe programmes and opioid substitution therapy) in a range of cities in the mid to late 1980s prevented and reversed explosive HIV epidemics associated with drug injecting, but such effective public health programmes face legal barriers and a lack of political will in many countries, resulting in very low coverage in most countries. Voluntary medical male circumcision, which provides 60% life-long protection from HIV has been rolled out in high burden countries in East and southern Africa benefitting more than 20 million adolescent boys and men.

Generation X describes people born from 1965 through 1980. The label overtook the first name affixed to this generation: the Baby Bust. In part, this generation is defined by the relatively low birth rates in these years compared with the Baby Boom generation that preceded them and the Millennial generation that followed them. The label for this generation was popularized by a 1991 book by Douglas Coupland titled, Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture.

During the 1980s, the administrations of Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush took a hard-line approach to illicit drug use as concern over the dangers of marijuana rose. Between 1978 and 1990, support for the legal use of marijuana fell by 30 percentage points among Boomers (from 47% to 17%) and by 11 points among Silents (from 25% to 14%). Though one potential hypothesis is that these shifts were attributable to life-stage (that people might become less supportive of marijuana as they move into middle age) opinion among the youngest generation at that time, Gen X, suggests the importance of the period. Among Xers, whose oldest members were in their early to mid-20s in 1990, just 21% favored legalization at the time; they were far less supportive of legalization than Boomers had been at a comparable stage in their lives.

Millennials (who were born in the 1980s and 1990s, and have come of age in a period when support for legalization was rising among their elders) are the most supportive of legalization: Since 2006, the share of Millennials favoring the legal use of marijuana has doubled, from 34% to 68%, reflecting a sharper rise in support than seen among Xers and Boomers. 041b061a72
