Cowboy Jack Clement & The Watchman – Guess Things Happen…

Confused about kcal and calories on Lu Prince biscuits label? I got a package of Lu Prince from France and it says on it 1 biscuit (20g) = 96kcal. If I do the math that is 96000 Calories. That doesn’t seem right. If I go online, one sites says 2 Lu Prince biscuits = 140 calories.Isn’t 1kcal = 1000 Calories? it makes no sense at all in this example above.

There are a lot of different kinds of Lu Prince biscuits. My favorites are Le Petit Beurre (140 calories for 4 biscuits), Chocolate Cookies (94 calories for 1 cookie), Le Petit Ecolier (130 calories for 2 biscuits) and Pim’s Orange (100 calories for 2 biscuits).On food labels, the terms “calorie” and “kilocalorie” mean the same and are interchangeable.Usually US food labels will use the whole word “calorie”, omitting the “kilo” part, while other countries might use the abbreviation kcal.In 1824, the French chemist Nicolas Clément defined the calorie, which is a unit of energy and heat. It was the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water one degree Celsius. As a unit of energy, the calorie was replaced by the joule (1 kilocalorie = 4.1868 kilojoules kJ) but the kilocalorie is still used as a unit of food energy.The gram calorie is based on one gram of water. The kilogram calorie, the kilocalorie (1,000 gram calories) is based on one kilogram of water but in the context of nutrition and food labeling, the larger unit is used, the kilocalorie, abbreviated kcal, but US food label will usually just use the word “calorie” which is why you might get confused.The calorie system was based on the metric system. The metric system was accepted worldwide in the 18th Century and is based on the simple powers of ten, making fractions obsolete.All the lengths, weights (solid and liquid) and temperature measurement are interconnected to the power of ten.In 1670, Gabriel Mouton, a French scientist, first proposed the decimal system based on the circumference of the Earth and the simple powers of ten, which was later confirmed to be the standard gravity of the Earth.The basic unit of length in the metric system, also called the International System of Units is the meter which represent one ten-millionth of the distance from the Equator to the North Pole. In the 18th century (1790), the French Revolution adopted the metric system to bring order between countries with different systems. Up until then, each country had different systems of weights and measures and a lot of confusion and misunderstandings would occur. Some countries would have their measurements system based on the weight of an elephant!Merchants, scientists and educated people realized that a uniform system was needed and only a complete political upheaval like the French Revolution would allow this radical change to happen worldwide.The USA stands out, using the (Imperial) U.S. customary unit, instead of the International System of Units which is not very logical since the American fields of Science, Medicine, Technology and the Military are using the more accurate and easier metric system. Others, like school children doing their homework or housewives trying to figure out the right size of their ingredients in a recipe, have to deal with fractions and ounces, pounds, inches, feet, miles, yards, cups, pint, quarts, gallons and degrees Fahrenheit…16 ounces in a pound but 12 inches in a foot, 3 feet in a yard, 1,760 yards in a mile? sorry, I get dizzy and I’m not surprised that American students are so bad in international scholar exams.Non-Americans kids surely are having an easier time learning that 10 millimeters = 1 centimeter, 100 centimeters = 1 meter, 1,000 meters = 1 kilometer, 1,000 grams = 1 kilogram, 1,000 milliliters = 1 liter = 1 kilogram of water and that the freezing point of water is 0 °C and the boiling point of water is 100 °C instead of 32°F and 212°F.America surely likes to do things differently, even going out of its way to make sure that it does not have the same DST as the rest of the world.Luckily, US food labels are using (kilo)calories, based on the metric system, so they are using grams. I guess if would not be practical to use 0.035 of an ounce, instead of one gram. 1 gram of fat is 9 calories and 1 gram of protein or carbohydrate is 4 calories.

Does anyone understand the movie Psych9? So I watched the movie Psych9 and I had no idea what was going on.Who is the Nighthawk?Was Dr.Clement really dead?At the end Dr.Clement said he had a deal with her but she broke itWhat was the deal and who was it with?
Things aren’t explained well enough and we get introduced to things in a way that almost feels like we were supposed to already know about it. The presence of all these dead bodies for instance, “the string of murders”, we know nothing about that until Rosalyn talks about the newspaper’s coverage of it. Words are used like, “another murder” when this is the first we’ve heard about it. Additionally there’s all this annoying stuff about Rosalyn that should make us curious but instead it makes us well–annoyed. I can barely even explain it, it’s just this weird unspoken tone about Sara’s life and persona. We are kept purposely in the dark but in the grand scheme of things, this ends up hurting way too much of her characterization.Psych 9 ultimately needs to follow that general rule of show don’t tell. We can read that Sara is “unstable” but there is absolutely nothing that would clue us into that if we just went into the movie blind. In fact, I was amazed after reading that summary because there is no way anyone would pick up on that. Sara from an outsider’s point of view does not seem to be unstable, or disturbed until about 45 minutes into the film. It’s like her crazy meter goes from 0 to 100 over the course of 5 minutes. Again, this is bad writing and characterization. There are ways to set up a story much better than this. There are ways to establish the fact that there are a string of murders without bluntly stating it, and there are definitely ways to show that our main character is a little unstable—and Psych 9 fails to do this.Aside from this, the biggest thing that Psych 9 fails to do is actually scare its viewers. There is one incredibly unfair jump scare (think those annoying “Look a ghost on camera” videos) that is never explained and that’s about it. The abandoned hospital fails to achieve that creepy and isolated atmosphere that it should just achieve on its own. The more that I think about it, the more I realize what a huge disappointment this element of the film was. All of the creepy, is traded in for this bull shit complicated mess of a plot. There are twists pouring out of the screen at times, and it makes things so ridiculous it doesn’t even seem possible.Here is what Psych 9 needs to do; stick to one thing. It tries to tackle about 20 different stories over the course of an hour and a half. What’s more–is that the “twist” isn’t explained well enough for normal people to understand. Think of the Sixth Sense. Imagine if after we found out the twist–something happened that completely made us second guess what the twist was. Imagine Cole’s mother having a conversation with Bruce Willis. Wouldn’t that be completely ridiculous? Well that’s basically what happens in Psych 9 and it makes people confused, only not in the “This is supposed to be ambiguous way” but in the “This is bull shit” way.On the acting front, performances are acceptable and Cary Elwes is less fat and distracting like he was in that other terrible movie I reviewed. But really, when all is said and done–I am far too distracted by the horrible way the film turned out to even go back and acknowledge things like this. Organizationally, Psych 9 is a mess. A giant mess, and I’m really concerned that its being released in a few days and is such a mess. It could have been a contender if it was just cleaned up, but I’m afraid it’s too late.The very end is one of the biggest slaps in the face I have ever seen. It makes you disgusted and questions the morality of everyone involved with the film. It’s not really something I can talk about without ruining the whole film, but just know that is one of the most careless outcomes that I have ever been exposed to. Psych 9 started off as okay and then quickly fell into horribly stupid. I’m sorry Psych 9, I really am–but you have very few if any, redeeming qualities. You are messy, complicated and unfairly twisty. You offer no valuable insight into the psychological aspect of horror, and you make Dr. Giggles look like an Oscar winner and that— is embarrassing.
