A leg is a weight bearing and locomotive structure, usually having a columnar shape. During locomotion, legs function as "extensible struts". The combination of movements at all joints can be modeled as a single, linear element capable of changing length and rotating about an omnidirectional "hip" joint.
As an anatomical animal structure it is used for locomotion. The distal end is often modified to distribute force (such as a foot). Most animals have an even number of legs.
As a component of furniture it is used for the economy of materials needed to provide the support for the useful surface, the table top or chair seat.
Arthropoda: 4, 6 (Insecta), 8, 12, or 14 legs. Some arthropods have more than a dozen legs; a few species possess over 100. Despite what their names might suggest, centipedes ("hundred feet") may have fewer than 20 or more than 300 legs, and millipedes ("thousand feet") have fewer than 1,000 legs, but up to 750.
A leg is a single game in the sport of darts. Most darts matches are played over a number of legs. Alternatively, a match may be divided into sets, with each set being contested often on a first to 3 legs basis.
Start and finish
At the start of each leg, each player or team has a score of 501. A leg is over when either side reaches zero by hitting a double or the bull's eye. If playing several sets, the player throwing first is alternated.
Jacques-Eugene Armengaud and his brother Charles (1813-1893) worked as patent agents and consulting engineers. Later Armengaud taught machine drawing at Conservatoire national des arts et métiers, and was partner in a machine factory. He specialized in the mechanical engineering and the design of machines, on which he wrote a series of books. His work made a significant contribution to the disclosure of new construction techniques in his days. He also edited the journal Publication industrielle des machines.
Herman George van Loenhout (10 April 1946 – 19 November 2015), better known as Armand, was a Dutch protest singer. His greatest hit song was "Ben ik te min" ("Am I not good enough?"). Armand came to the fore during the hippie generation and was well-known as an advocate of cannabis.
Armand was a member of a few bands before releasing a solo single, "En nou ik", in 1965. The single was a flop, and he had a bit more success with his next single, "Een van hen ben ik". Three months after that single's release, Radio Veronica played the single's B-side, "Ben ik te min", which was an instant success. The song spent 14 weeks in the Dutch top 40 chart in 1967. A song in which the speaker lashes out against the bourgeois father of his girlfriend, it is hailed as the best-known protest song in Dutch popular music. Another single, "Blommenkinders", also charted that year.
Because of his support for the legalization of cannabis, lyrics about which his record company (Fontana Records, an imprint of Philips Records) refused to release, he left for Johnny Hoes's Telstar. Telstar's imprint Killroy released six Armand albums between 1971 and 1981.
Born in August 1901 in Erzurum, then part of the Ottoman Empire, he came with his father to Alexandria, Egypt in 1907. At school, he had a passion for drawing. He started working as an apprentice under Nadir, a photographer based in Alexandria. In 1925, he went to Cairo as an assistant to Zola, an Austrian Jewish photographer and renowned portraitist, at his studio in Ard el-Sherif, near Midan Mustafa Kamel street. Zola sent Arzrouni to Austria to learn about the colorization of black-and-white photographs, as well as airbrush technique and the use of charcoal and chalk. Upon Zola's death in 1930, Arzrouni opened his own studio in Midan Mustafa Kamel under the name Armand Studio. His father built him a giant enlarger capable of handling negatives with large dimensions. By the mid-1950s, his first studio was threatened with destruction, so he opened a second studio in 1956, in Talaat Harb street. He specialized in portrait photography, and took photographs of politicians, film stars, famous cabaret dancers, as well as members of the royal family. The 1952 Revolution did not hinder his career, and he continued to take photographs of famous people, notably Gamal Abdel Nasser and foreign heads of state visiting Egypt. He was especially well known for the elaborate settings of his wedding photographs. He also occasionally received orders for photographs of hotels and department stores. His son Armand worked as his assistant as early as 1960, and took over the studio after his father's death in 1963. He signs his photographs in the same way as his father.
