    Alfred Hitchcock is more than just the master of suspense. Throughout his career, the legendary director transformed cinema as we know it today through his unique visual eye, masterful storytelling, and incredible showmanship. In celebration of his birthday on Sunday, we look back on his most memorable works -- ranging from the crowd-pleasing "Psycho" to a movie regarded as one of the best ever made, "Vertigo." Here are the 13 Alfred Hitchcock movies you need to watch in your lifetime:

  • Which knot do use to climb a wet rope?

    If you're into rappeling or knot tying for fun or practical survival, have a look at this Bachmann knot. You're going to need it if you're going to encounter climbing up a wet rope. For those not familiar with it, the Bachmann knot is a uni-directional, meaning it can only be loaded from one direction and that's down. Again, its something that most survivalist should know, but how many have actually practice climbing with it? See the video here.

    Today, the Virginia House of Delegates passed a bill to authorize the farming, and production of industrial hemp in the state for commercial purposes, setting the foundation to nullify in practice the unconstitutional federal prohibition on the same. The vote was 98-0. Introduced by Del. Brenda Pogge (R-Norge), House Bill 699 (HB699) would amend current state law on hemp by removing a provision that authorized the licensing of hemp farming only upon approval of the federal government.

    America has been all but dismantled by the Democrats but it’s all Bush’s and the Republican’s fault There should be no surprise that the Clintons ‘corralled the press” not just on July 4, 2015, but did it too as far back as 1992. Reporters, roped in like so many hogs being led to slaughter, project a perfect picture of the modern-day mainstream media. Non-squeaking little piggies on their way to market all willingly taking the path to what they think is the one of least resistance. That’s because the Clintons own the press.

    Via the Examiner, count me in with John Nolte and Sean Davis in wondering why this grand humiliation is being treated as a Hillary scandal instead of a media scandal. Clinton advance aides create a rope line for the press, moving with the candidate— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) July 4, 2015 Davis: It was a truly embarrassing spectacle, but not for Hillary Clinton. It was embarrassing for the press, because they willingly allow this nonsense to keep happening. It almost appears as though America’s political media are suffering from something approaching Battered Reporter Syndrome: yeah, she tied us up, but...

    Hillary's wrangling of the reporters: Clinton uses two aides and a rope to lasso journalists away from her on Fourth of July parade As Hillary Clinton walked freely down a New Hampshire road, she shook hands and greeted residents with a smile. But the members of the press accompanying her were a bit more restricted in their movements - as they were guided through the streets with a rope. The former Secretary of State's campaign staff kept reporters, cameramen and photographers at arm's length as she joined a July 4 parade in Gorham - fueling speculation she is trying to...

    A 22-year-old Utah man was killed while swinging from a rock arch in a stunt made popular by YouTube. Grand County sheriff's officials say Kyle Lee Stocking, of West Jordan, died about 3:30 p.m. Sunday, after hitting the ground below the 140-foot-tall Corona Arch near Moab. Sheriff's Lt. Kim Neal told The Salt Lake Tribune the length of rope from the arch was miscalculated and sent Stocking swinging into the ground as he went under the red sandstone formation.

    Coils of Ancient Egyptian Rope Found in Cave Rossella Lorenzi, Discovery News June 20, 2008 -- The ancient Egyptian's secret to making the strongest of all rigging ropes lies in a tangle of cord coils in a cave at the Red Sea coast, according to preliminary study results presented at the recent congress of Egyptologists in Rhodes. Discovered three years ago by archaeologists Rodolfo Fattovich of the Oriental Studies University of Naples and Kathryn Bard of Boston University, the ropes offer an unprecedented look at seafaring activities in ancient Egypt. "No ropes on this scale and this old have been...

    As I sit here behind this laptop, I now realize that this definitely wasn’t the brightest idea I have ever had. I was going to rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a couple of weeks, then kill it and eat it. The first step in this adventure was getting a deer. I figured that, since they congregate at my cattle feeder and do not seem to have much fear of me when we are there (a bold one will sometimes come right up and sniff at the bags of feed while I...

    A small Connecticut-based company Herobuilders, has produced a mail-order doll of late Iraqi president Saddam Hussein's final minutes at the gallows. Despite having received a death threat on Thursday, Herobuilder's founder and owner, Emilio Vicale told Adnkronos International (AKI) he does not regret creating the doll or feel it is inappropriate. "What about Saddam's gassing of thousands of people - was that in good taste?" he asked, referring to Saddam's alleged responsibility for the gassing of 5,000 Kurds and poisoning of thousands more.

    For education and discussion only. Not for commercial use. Proponents of so-called "free" trade agreements like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which I opposed, have long promised endless riches for U.S. workers, farmers, businesses and economy. They've been wrong on all counts. Failed U.S. trade policies have led to the export of millions of high-paying American jobs; decline in U.S. living standards; soaring trade deficits; and a significant erosion of U.S. sovereignty to international trade bureaucrats. Despite this unbroken record of failure, the House is expected to vote before August on an agreement the Bush administration negotiated to...

    Law firms are following the example of financial services and telecommunications groups by outsourcing operations to cut costs and boost profits, according to research published today. Almsot all large and medium-sized law firms will be outsourcing or offshoring at least some of their operations within the next two years, figures from Deloitte, the professional services firm, suggest. The legal sector has been slower than other professional services industries to embrace outsourcing and offshoring, the practice of transferring certain activities to lower cost jurisdictions overseas.

    COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (Reuters) - Sri Lankan hangman Suranimala has never seen an execution, confesses the sight of the gallows makes him a little nervous and lacks the most crucial tool of his trade -- a rope. The slight, soft-spoken 24-year-old has spent his first three years in the job pushing papers in the chief jailer's office at Welikada prison in Colombo, but all that is about to change. Sri Lanka reactivated its dormant death penalty last month after a near 30-year-lull to combat a surge in grisly crimes and contract killings, which means it is now finally time for...
