Billboards on Times Square , New York City These sort of multi-sign advertisements are no longer common, though they are not extinct. One example, advertising for the NCAA , depicts a basketball player aiming a shot on one billboard; on the next one, 90 yards 82 meters away, is the basket. Another example is the numerous billboards advertising the roadside attraction South of the Border near Dillon, SC , along I in many states. Many cities have high densities of billboards, especially where there is dense pedestrian traffic— Times Square in New York City is a good example. Because of the lack of space in cities, these billboards are placed on the sides of buildings and sometimes are free-standing billboards hanging above buildings. Billboards on the sides of buildings create different stylistic opportunities, with artwork that incorporates features of the building into the design, such as using windows as eyes, or for gigantic frescoes that adorn the entire building. Visual and environmental concerns[ edit ] Many groups such as Scenic America have complained that billboards on highways cause excessive clearing of trees and intrude on the surrounding landscape, with billboards’ bright colors, lights and large fonts making it difficult to focus on anything else, making them a form of visual pollution.

We publicly state that we have factors when it comes to scanning, indexing and ranking. Generally, the number of algorithms is a casual number. For instance, one algorithm can be used to display a letter on the search results page. Therefore, we believe that counting the exact number of algorithms that Google uses is not something that is really useful [for optimizers].

Highways in Australia In Australia, a highway is a distinct type of road from freeways, expressways, and motorways. The word highway is generally used to mean major roads connecting large cities, towns and different parts of metropolitan areas. Metropolitan highways often have traffic lights at intersections, and rural highways usually have only one lane in each direction. The words freeway, expressway or motorway are generally reserved for the most arterial routes, usually with grade-separated intersections and usually significantly straightened and widened to a minimum of four lanes.
The term motorway is used in some Australian cities to refer to freeways that have been allocated a metropolitan route number.

Production[ edit ] Screenwriter James Carabatsos, a Vietnam veteran of the 1st Cavalry Division , was inspired by an account of American paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division using a pay telephone and a credit card to call in fire support during the invasion of Grenada, and fashioned a script of a Korean War veteran career Army non-commissioned officer passing on his values to a new generation of soldiers. Eastwood was interested in the script and asked his producer, Fritz Manes, to contact the US Army with a view of filming the movie at Fort Bragg.
The Army called the character a “stereotype” of World War II and Korean War attitudes that did not exist in the modern army and also did not like the obscene dialogue and lack of reference to women in the army.
