    Crono

    Crono (クロノ Kurono?, "Chrono" in Japanese media) is the silent protagonist in Chrono Trigger. He lives with his mother in the town of Truce under the rule of the Guardia Kingdom.
    In 12000 BC when the party is confronted with Lavos in the Ocean Palace of the Kingdom of Zeal, he sacrifices himself to save his friends, though he can be revived. While the other six playable characters have many lines of dialogue, Crono's responses to events are usually implied only through reaction and gesture, often for comedic effect. Crono speaks once in one of the endings to Chrono Trigger, saying just a few lines of dialogue. He uses a katana as a weapon and once he obtains magical ability, his Techs become lightning-oriented. In the original Japanese version of the game, Crono's element was Ten (天?), which means "heaven". In the DS version of Chrono Trigger, Crono's element is translated to Light, which is more in line with the original Japanese translation.

    CHONO is an extinct group of people who were indigenous to Chiloé Island, Los Lagos, Chile. They used nets and spears to gather food from the sea, but supplemented their catch with potatoes and other growths from small gardens. The dwelling places consisted of caves or leather structures.

    The Chono became extinct during the 18th century with the last survivor going missing in 1875.

    The Chono language is known only from local toponyms unexplicable from existing local languages, such as kawesqar, and is not related to any known language family.

    Upon the design of the Brackets, Thino Series Bracket improved its performance in correspondence of clinic requirements. Made of much strong stainless steel, this bracket series can be in a low labial-lingual profile (L.P) design, which is dramatically reduced the interference of occlusion and clinical bonding failure afterwards, so maximize patient comfort without sacrificing the structure strength at the wings, slot, etc of the bracket.

    More features:
    Even though with the L.P design, Thino series bracket is stronger to resist various deforming forces during the treatment.
    The Fully combined Contour of the Mesh Base is well match corresponding tooth surface to achieve the excellent bonding strength.
    The improved tie wing undercuts are easy for the ligation even with a reduced thickness of brackets.
    Vertical scribe line, rhomboidal shape, and the different permanent color codes for each quadrant make the clinic practicing easy.

    CHORO (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈʃoɾu], "cry" or "lament"), traditionally called chorinho ("little cry" or "little lament"), is a Brazilian popular music instrumental style. Its origins are in 19th century Rio de Janeiro. In spite of the name, the style often has a fast and happy rhythm, characterized by virtuosity and improvisation. Choro is considered the first popular music typical of Brazil.

    Rain, rain, go away......:supergrin:

    Chodo Habat was a male Ithorian Force Adept, and leader of the herd that oversaw the Telosian Restoration Project after the Bombing of Telos IV. He was a respected spiritual leader among his people because of his ability to feel the Force. He helped the Jedi Exile regain some of her own Force-sensitivity in exchange for her help in dealing with Czerka Corporation and local Exchange boss Loppak Slusk, whose combined action of sabotage had brought the Restoration project to a halt. Eventually, his efforts made the planet's atmosphere suitable for life again, after it had been turned into acidic vapor by the Sith bombardment. Twenty other worlds would benefit from his success.[1]

    GRAPO Antifascist Resistance Groups October First (in Spanish: Grupos de Resistencia Antifascista Primero de Octubre, generally known by its abbreviation GRAPO) is the armed wing of the Partido Comunista de España-reconstitutido (PCE-r), a Spanish clandestine Maoist group aiming for the formation of a Spanish Marxist-Leninist Republican state, based on the model of Maoist China.

    Besides its anticapitalism, it is strongly opposed to Spain's NATO membership and its rhetoric is extremely anti-American.
    To date, the latest violent action inflicted by GRAPO dates from 2006. After having being fairly active in the late 1970s and early 1980s, currently their dwindling numbers, lack of any social support and police action has allowed Spanish officials to claim to claim a number of times to have disbanded the GRAPO after the few remaining militants of the band were captured. Currently, according to the Spanish police, GRAPO was disbanded after six of its militants were arrested in June 2007[1] but, formally, the group has not announced its dissolution.

    GRAPO is included in the European Union list of terrorist persons and organisations.[2]
