Open Space and Traffic Jams Sited on a peninsula dotted with steep hills, the city of San Francisco occupies a mere 47 square miles, almost completely surrounded by water.
Promises of WealthTo win support for his bridge, Strauss drove from town to town, trying to convince residents that a bridge would make their land more valuable, and facilitate tourist traffic. Physical ChallengesSan Francisco's unique natural setting made bridge-building -- along with many other urban improvement projects -- a challenge. ConnectionOn May 27, 1937, after years of planning and labor, Joseph Strauss' dream of connecting crowded San Francisco to pastoral Marin County was finally realized. WartimeAfter the December 7, 1941, Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, federal officials grew concerned that the Japanese would target San Francisco next. Postwar BoomCity officials initiated urban renewal, as many Americans sought suburban lifestyles. Green SpaceToday, San Francisco remains one of America's most densely populated cities, and an average of 125,000 people commute into the city each day.

Urban Legend is a 1998 American slasher film starring Jared Leto, Alicia Witt, and Rebecca Gayheart. At a gas station, Michelle Mancini (Natasha Gregson Wagner) fights off an apparent attack by a stuttering attendant (Brad Dourif). As Natalie Simon (Alicia Witt) is shaken by Michelle's death, Damon Brooks (Joshua Jackson) offers to talk and the two drive into the woods. Realizing Damon and Michelle's murders resemble urban legends, Natalie goes to the library to read up on urban legends. After trying to save Brenda (Rebecca Gayheart) from a supposed attack in the swimming pool, Natalie reveals her past. Next, the school dean Adams (John Neville) is attacked in the garage and run over by his car forcing the emergency spikes into his back. At a party, Parker gets a phone call from the killer telling him that his dog is in the microwave. Professor Wexler mentioned the legend of the babysitter getting phone calls from an upstairs room. Parker suggests placing spider eggs in Bubble Yum[9] and gerbilling[10] as the killer's next move. Gangs driving with their headlights turned off, pursuing the first driver to flash them and running him off the road, is mentioned by Sasha in the library.

This article may need to be rewritten entirely to comply with Wikipedia's quality standards. Urban Cowboy is a 1980 American western romantic drama film about the love-hate relationship between Buford Uan "Bud" Davis (John Travolta) and Sissy (Debra Winger).
The film's screenplay was adapted by Aaron Latham and James Bridges from an article by the same name in Esquire Magazine written by Latham. John Travolta, et al, rented a home in the Memorial area overlooking Buffalo Bayou on or about 110 Shasta Drive, Houston, Texas 77024.[original research?] The entourage was frequently seen driving back and forth down Lindenwood Drive and Shasta Drive while filming in Houston.
Wes Hightower (Scott Glenn), on parole from Huntsville Penitentiary, lands a job at Gilley's running the mechanical bull due to his rodeo skills. Shortly after, Sissy and Bud see each other at Gilley's, but Sissy, still angry, refuses to talk to Bud.
Bud wants to enter the mechanical bull riding contest at Gilley's and starts training with his uncle Bob, a former rodeo champion. The movie featured a hit soundtrack album spawning numerous Top 10 Billboard Country Singles, such as #1 "Lookin' for Love" by Johnny Lee, #1 "Stand by Me" by Mickey Gilley, #3 (AC chart) "Look What You've Done to Me" by Boz Scaggs, #1 "Could I Have This Dance" by Anne Murray, and #4 "Love the World Away" by Kenny Rogers. On May 28, 2015, it was announced that 20th Century Fox Television had teamed-up with Paramount Television to adapt the 1980s film Urban Cowboy into a television series, and set Craig Brewer to write and direct the pilot, while to executive produce the whole series.[18] Chris Levinson was set as the showrunner and would executive produce the series along with Robert Evans and Sue Naegle.
Prior to Gilley, Johnny Lee, Jimmy Buffet, The Charlie Daniels Band and Ann Murray singing in a€?Urban Cowboy,a€? country wasn't cool. The importance of Urban Cowboy, although easy to lampoon as another instance of capitalistic culture-mining, should not be overlooked.
Fans of the 1980 film a€?Urban Cowboya€? should breathe a sigh of relief or at least let out a rebel yell right about now. The Classic Film and TV Cafe is a blog devoted to classic films and television series, ranging from the silent film era to the early 1980s. The mainstream success of Blaxploitation pictures like Cotton Comes to Harlem (1970) and Shaft (1971) spawned dozens of urban action films from 1971 to 1976. Actors like Richard Pryor, Godfrey Cambridge, and William Marshall had established solid credentials in the entertainment industry well before the start of Blaxploitation films. Blaxploitation films also broke ground with urban soundtracks composed by well-known musicians such as Isaac Hayes, Curtis Mayfield, and James Brown. This month, the Classic Film & TV Cafe pays homage to the Blaxploitation films--the African American urban action films of the 1970s.
Of all the people on earth that must be shielded and protected from harm, pregnant women (along with children) are at the top of the list. Other visionaries had proposed spanning the Golden Gate long before Joseph Strauss laid out his scheme in 1919, but none of the early designs were feasible, either from an engineering or economic standpoint. In contrast to San Francisco's congested streets, the isolated counties across the Golden Gate were rural and rather unpopulated.
Strauss predicted immediate economic benefits -- an "empire of wealth" for the northern counties.
The devastating 1906 earthquake had set off uncontrollable fires that destroyed 28,000 buildings -- making more than two thirds of the city's population homeless. The bridge became a commuter conduit -- an average of 9,073 cars passed over the bridge each day. Buildings once used for the Golden Gate International Exposition were transformed into barracks, and the War Department took over most of the Marin shore.
New development projects were in limbo and the city was faced with exploding population rates yet again.

Beginning in the 1950s, the federal government added to the redevelopment impulse, supporting "Parks for the People." The War Department donated land to the state of California to be used as public parks and recreational space. The film is based on the premise that a killer is using the methods of death described in certain urban legends to kill students at a New England university.
However, he was actually trying to warn her of an attacker in the back seat, and as Michelle drives off, the attacker in the back seat decapitates her with an axe. Damon is attacked by the killer, who hangs him from a tree with the rope attached to the car. While she is away, her goth roommate Tosh (Danielle Harris), is strangled to death by the killer.
One night Natalie and Michelle re-enacted an urban legend; they were driving with their headlights turned off and pursued the first driver who flashed them, causing him to run off the road and die in the crash. Later, Reese finds Professor Wexler's (Robert Englund) office trashed and smeared in blood. After opening the microwave and seeing his dead dog, he then runs to the bathroom to vomit, where the killer ties him to the toilet and forces him to chug pop rocks and bathroom chemicals (instead of soda), killing him. The killer comes in and unmasks herself as Brenda, who plays mind games with Natalie and taunts her about Natalie's attempt to save Brenda. The original Esquire article centered on the romance between two Gilley's regulars named Dew Westbrook and Betty Helmer. He hopes to save enough money to move back to his hometown of Spur, Texas and buy some land.[4] Bud stays with his Uncle Bob (Barry Corbin) and his family, with whom Bud is close. He flirts with Sissy, who is flattered, but a drunken Bud is enraged, and he and Wes end up in a fist fight. To make Sissy jealous, Bud introduces himself to a beautiful girl named Pam (Madolyn Smith) and dances with her, while Sissy dances with Wes. At his funeral, Sissy tells Bud that Wes was fired from Gilley's and is unable to find another job. It also included songs that were hits from earlier years such as #1 "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" by the Charlie Daniels Band and "Lyin' Eyes" by the Eagles. According to Deadline, a planned television update of the 35-year-old movie is apparently dead in the water at the Fox network. If you're a fan of classic Hollywood, world cinema, or TV shows like The Fugitive and The Avengers, then come on into the cafe and have fun! However, their careers got a substantial boost when they landed starring roles in The Mack (Pryor), Cotton Comes to Harlem (Cambridge), and Blacula (Marshall). It's hard to disagree, given her body of work in action films like Coffy, Foxy Brown, and Friday Foster. Except for Linda Hamilton in Terminator (1991) and Sigourney Weaver in Alien (1979), every other actress listed is from a film made in 2001 or later.
Writer-director Larry Cohen (It's Alive) based Black Caesar  loosely on the 1931 gangster film Little Caesar.
By 1910, San Franciscans were buying their first automobiles from entrepreneurs like Charles Howard (who would invest his new fortune in racehorses including the famous Seabiscuit). Into the 1920s, more citizens and a post-war economic boom fueled the city's desire to expand. San Francisco was one of the world's busiest ports, and shippers were concerned that bridge construction would slow down their trade. Once bitten, San Francisco residents were twice shy of a bridge that would sit just 12 miles west of the San Andreas Fault.
Ferries were forced to cut their prices below the fifty-cent bridge toll in order to compete. Planners dropped projects to expand residential areas north across the bridge, devoting time and resources to the war effort instead.
The postwar baby boom brought increased traffic to the city -- and the Golden Gate Bridge. The Golden Gate National Recreation Area is one of the largest urban national parks in the world, comprising 75,398 acres of spectacular landscapes and over two dozen miles of coastline, nearly two and a half times the size of San Francisco -- and just across the Golden Gate Bridge. On a college campus, student Parker Riley (Michael Rosenbaum) relates how one of the campus halls, Stanley Hall, had been the site of a massacre in 1973.
As the killer approaches Natalie, she attempts to run him over, strangling Damon to death in the process. Thinking her roommate is merely engaging in sexual activity, Natalie doesn't turn on the lights and goes to bed. Meanwhile, Paul has discovered the Stanley Hall massacre actually occurred and Wexler was the sole survivor.
When Paul stops at a gas station, Natalie and Brenda discover Wexler's dead body in the car and bolt, thinking Paul to be the killer. She reveals that the young man Natalie and Michelle killed was Brenda's boyfriend and she is now exacting her revenge.
Westbrook and Helmer's real life relationship became the inspiration for the on screen romance between John Travolta's and Debra Winger's characters "Bud" and "Sissy".[1] The movie was directed by Bridges.
Bob takes Bud to the local honky tonk, Gilley's (at the time, an actual bar in Pasadena, co-owned by singer Mickey Gilley and his record producer Sherwood Cryer).
Their wedding reception is held at Gilley's, and they immediately move into a brand new mobile home. Sissy, against Bud's wishes, spends time at Gilley's during the day learning how to ride the mechanical bull. Meanwhile, Sissy returns to their mobile home to pick up her things, but she also cleans house and leaves Bud a note saying she hopes they can get back together.
The film is said to have started the 1980s boom in pop-country music known as the "Urban Cowboy Movement" also known as Neo-Country or Hill Boogie. Combining toughness, sexuality, and female empowerment, Grier dominated the male characters in her films. Thus, Grier was breaking ground for female action stars that wouldn't be plowed for two more decades--an impressive achievement. 1 Billboard hit with "Theme from Shaft," which also earned an Academy Award for Best Song. City officials had improved the narrow peninsula with municipal projects including a complex sewer system, firefighting network, aqueduct system and streetcar transit system. The federal War Department, which owned land on both sides of the Gate, was equally opposed to the bridge, assuming it would interfere with military operations.

In addition to earthquake threats, the bridge would have to withstand the strong currents that swirled through the Gate, and weather the passage's gale-force winds. The Citizens' Postwar Planning Commission concluded, "San Francisco has become careless and allowed itself to run down at the heels. As the killer recovers, Natalie tries to drive away but Damon's body lands on top on car, forcing Natalie to flee and alerts security guard Reese Wilson (Loretta Devine) who doesn't believe her when they find the car and Damon's corpse missing.
In the morning, a shocked Natalie discovers her corpse and the words, "Aren't you glad you didn't turn on the light?" scrawled on the wall in blood. Natalie loses Brenda but makes her way to a road, where the school's janitor (Julian Richings) picks her up. She begins to cut Natalie's stomach in the fashion of the "Kidney Heist" legend, when Reese rushes in and forces Brenda to get away from Natalie. The film's events are then revealed to be an incorrect story being told among a different group of students at a different University. Much of the action centers around activities at Gilley's Club, a honky tonk in Pasadena, Texas.
Some film critics referred to the movie as a country music version of Saturday Night Fever.
Soon after, however, Sissy moves in with Wes, who lives in a run-down trailer behind Gilley's.
It is Bud who wins the contest, however, and Pam, realizing that he still loves Sissy, encourages him to reconcile with her. What made Shaft unique was that its protagonist was a black man and--at a time when the only African American movie star was Sidney Poitier--that was a game-changer.
And, as mentioned earlier, the Blaxploitation genre created its own stars in Richard Roundtree, Fred Williamson, Bernie Casey, and Pam Grier--all of whom went on to long careers in film and television.
Even when she became their victim briefly, as in Foxy Brown, she retaliated with a vengeance.
In fact, I'd say that films like it and SWEET SWEETBACK (1971) played a pivotal role in the evolution of the Blaxploitation films. But city officials soon calculated that the city needed the bridge: increasingly crowded on the city peninsula, residents simply had to find somewhere else to go. Finally, the bridge needed to be high enough to accommodate ships traveling in and out of the city's busy port. On February 28, 1941, the Golden Gate Ferry service, which had operated since 1850, was cancelled. To help traffic flow among all parts of the San Francisco Bay, planners revived the Golden Gate Ferry service in 1970, and built a subway system, the Bay Area Rapid Transit System, in 1972 to supplement the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge in connecting San Francisco with the East Bay. Sasha screams and runs out of the room; she is still on air and everyone can hear her cries for help. Reese frees Natalie, however, Brenda shoots her after she frees Natalie, who decided to untie the ropes on her hands and ankles all by herself.
Most of them disbelieve the tale with the exception of one young woman, who is revealed to be Brenda. She does it to impress Bud, but he becomes angry and resentful that Sissy defied him, and challenges her.
Still, music critics generally regard Curtis Mayfield's Superfly soundtrack as the best for a Blaxploitation film. On Sunday nights, the small Marin town of Sausalito was choked with traffic, as cars lined up to get back to the city. The janitor's car is forced off the road but Natalie survives and makes her way towards Stanley Hall. However, their lives settle into a routine of work by day and Gilley's at night, where Bud takes a liking to riding the mechanical bull.
When Bud falls off during his second ride in that challenge, Wes swings the bull around fast, breaking Bud's arm. This is why every child born completely healthy is a miracle considering that there are so many intricate moving parts to forming a salubrious fetus. As Brenda is deciding whether to shoot Paul or Natalie, the wounded Reese reaches up and shoots Brenda in the elbow. Part of the film!Top 10 Movie Production Urban LegendsThe myths surrounding some movies are so strong that it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction. 4 single, "Freddie's Dead"--which was released before Superfly--may have contributed to the film's success.
They're wholly different styles, but both groups allowed themselves to be defined by a broad genre and were limited in terms of budgets.
Blaxploitation horror films, like BLACULA and its sequel and SUGAR HILL, were covered in shadows and almost had the same effect of the Universal horror movies of the '30s. I could watch Fred Williamson in anything, even if he were just reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
And I concur that Pam Grier was one of the first female action stars -- a woman who shocks you with her charisma, strength and ultra-coolness well before you even realize how ridiculously beautiful she is. For example, on-location city scenes surely cost less than building sets--so that saved money. In addition to great actors, the folks behind the cameras were no slouches either: Gordon Parks, Sr.
However, Red Raspberry Leaf tea was drank daily throughout their pregnancy terms so the herb played an invaluable role in these two women's pregnancies.
All herbs that have a thin fibrous lining and are somewhat mucilaginous in nature are beneficial to the female reproductive system in general, the vaginal tract in particular.Red Raspberry Leaf will greatly benefit the female vagina as well as the reproductive glands and organs such as the uterus and ovaries. The plant contains estrogen-like compounds (estrogen precursors) and we're not talking about the bad or adverse estrogen that man (via Big Pharma) produces, but the natural estrogen-like compounds found in Nature that have no adverse side-effects, especially when a woman is healthy and there is no situation whereby her body is contaminated with synthetic man-made pharmaceutical-grade estrogen.Natural estrogen (estrogen precursors) will not harm the female body. However, if the female body is saturated with harmful, synthetic, man-made pharmaceutical-grade estrogen (estrone, estradiol) and a female begins to take natural estrogen (from a plant source such as Red Raspberry Leaf) without first detoxifying her body of the harmful and toxic residues of the man-made estrogen that some doctor (legalized dope dealer) prescribed for her, then of course the body will be out of whack not even knowing how to process the natural (organic) estrogen (again, which is really an estrogen-like compound called a precursor - estrogen precursor).Good Ole Beans and PeasIf you look back in the annals of time you'll come to realize that many of our ancestors migrated throughout the entire country from the south (where many slave plantations were located).
It's important that women consume beans so as not to suffer from constipation which is a serious issue during pregnancy.
