  1. Alias

    Alias is an American action television series created by J. J. Abrams which was broadcast on ABC for five seasons, from September 30, 2001, to May 22, 2006. It stars Jennifer Garner as Sydney Bristow, a CIA agent. The main theme of the series explores Sydney's obligation to conceal her true career from her friends and family, even as she assumes multiple aliases to carry out her missions. These themes are most prevalent in the first two seasons of the show. A major plotline of the series was the search for and recovery of artifacts created by Milo Rambaldi, a Renaissance-era character with similarities to both Leonardo da Vinci and Nostradamus. This plot and some technologies used in the series place Alias into the genre of science fiction. The series was well received among critics and has been included in several "best of" lists. Alias was in the American Film Institute's top ten list for television programs in 2003. The show also received numerous awards and nominations.

Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Que es sólo un mito que "rayo nunca cae dos veces en el mismo lugar". Muy recientemente, el 30 de junio 2014, tres rascacielos de altura en aumento desde chicago fueron alcanzados por un rayo 22 veces - 10 huelgas para los sears torre (alias willis), 8 a la torre del triunfo, y 4 para el centro hancock juan. científicamente hablando, hay una buena probabilidad de que un rayo puede golpear cualquier lugar más de una vez, dado el tiempo suficiente, y en el mismo lugar una y otra vez. puede tomar tan poco unos segundos en una sola tormenta eléctrica, o el tiempo que millones de años - pero un rayo finalmente golpeará dos veces, por lo menos. Y es la verdad que es más extraña que la ficción.

    Saludar a mumbai universidad! Acababa de cumplir 15 años, cuando me uní a la universidad de Mumbai, donde obtuve mis primeros dos grados - B.Sc. (Hons) en la química y la física, y la B.Sc. (Tecnología) en ingeniería química y tecnología de polímeros. I me considero muy afortunado y muy honrado de estudiar en los más prestigiosos institutos de la universidad de Bombay; Universidad Elphinstone, Instituto de la Ciencia, y UDCT. University of Mumbai era conocida entonces como la Universidad de Bombay, desde su creación en 1857 durante el gobierno Británico, para mí, fue realmente una experiencia impresionante, lleno de gracia y elegancia, a caminar a través de los grandes corredores de edificios universitarios bombay, o para entrar esos excelentes bibliotecas de la universidad o instituto Elphinstone de la ciencia (alias ris) o UDCT. Tengo millones de buenos recuerdos y preciosas de mis años de estudiante en la universidad de Mumbai, que involucra muchos momentos mágicos de mis mejores años de la adolescencia. Mi sincero saludo a la universidad de Mumbai, una de las mejores universidades del mundo, y mi alma mater favorito. Seguid así, University of Mumbai. Estamos orgullosos de ustedes - ¡siempre!
