In the months leading up to the invasion, the Allies conducted a substantial military deception, codenamed Operation Bodyguard, to mislead the Germans as to the date and location of the main Allied landings..Between 27 May and 4 June 1940, over 338,000 troops of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) and the French Army, trapped along the northern coast of France, were evacuated in the DunKirk evacuation..

Surgery (from the Greek: χειρουργική cheirourgikē (composed of χείρ, "hand", and ἔργον, "work"), via Latin: chirurgiae, meaning "hand work") is an ancient medical specialty that uses operative manual and instrumental techniques on a patient to investigate and/or treat a pathological condition such as disease or injury, to help improve bodily function or appearance or to repair unwanted ruptured areas (for example, a perforated ear drum)..An act of performing surgery may be called a surgical procedure, operation, or simply surgery.. In this context, the verb operate means to perform surgery. The adjective surgical means pertaining to surgery; e.g. surgical instruments or surgical nurse..Cosmetic surgery is done to improve the appearance of an otherwise normal structure..By type of procedure: Amputation involves cutting off a body part, usually a limb or digit; castration is also an example..Excision surgery names often start with a name for the organ to be excised (cut out) and end in -ectomy..Reconstruction, plastic or cosmetic surgery of a body part starts with a name for the body part to be reconstructed and ends in -oplasty.. Rhino is used as a prefix for "nose", therefore a rhinoplasty is for the nose..Some medical systems have a practice of routinely performing chest x-rays before surgery..In total, there were over 15 million operating room procedures performed in U.S. hospitals in 2011..Robotic surgery makes use of a surgical robot, such as the Da Vinci or the Zeus surgical systems, to control the instrumentation under the direction of the surgeon..

The Tanakh ( Hebrew: תַּנַ"ךְ‎,also Tenakh, Tenak, Tanach) or Mikra is the canon of the Hebrew Bible.. The traditional Hebrew text is known as the Masoretic Text..There is no scholarly consensus as to when the Hebrew Bible canon was fixed: some scholars argue that it was fixed by the Hasmonean dynasty, while others argue it was not fixed until the second century CE or even later..Formal closure of the canon has often been ascribed to Rabbinic Judaism after the destruction of the First Temple in 587 BCE..The Tanakh consists of 24 books..The Torah (תּוֹרָה, literally "teaching") consists of 5 books, commonly referred to as the "5 Books of Moses"..Nevi'im (Hebrew: נְבִיאִים Nəḇî'îm‎, "Prophets") is the second main division of the Tanakh, between the Torah and Ketuvim (כְּתוּבִים, "Writings") consists of 11 books..The 5 relatively short books of the Song of Songs, the Book of Ruth, the Book of Lamentations, Ecclesiastes and the Book of Esther are collectively known as the Hamesh Megillot (5 Megillot)..they are read in the synagogue on holidays, beginning with the Song of Solomon on Passover..Ritter (German for "knight") is a designation used as a title of nobility in German-speaking areas...

H in Ireland and parts of Australia is the 8th letter of the latin alphabet..The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language derives it from French hache from Latin haca or hic..Anatoly Liberman suggests a conflation of two obsolete orderings of the alphabet, one with H immediately followed by K and the other without any K..The perceived name of the letter affects the choice of indefinite article before initialisms beginning with H: for example "an H-bomb" or "a H-bomb"..The chemical symbol of hydrogen is H..A cube has 8 vertices..The modern 8 glyph, like all modern Hindu-Arabic numerals (other than zero) originates with the Brahmi numerals..In nuclear physics, the second magic number...The 8-spotted forester (genus Alypia, family Zygaenidae) is a diurnal moth having black wings with brilliant white spots..The atomic number of oxygen..The number of allotropes of carbon..All spiders, and more generally all arachnids, have 8 legs..
