The Official Chart
An official is someone who holds an office (function or mandate, regardless whether it carries an actual working space with it) in an organization or government and participates in the exercise of authority (either their own or that of their superior and/or employer, public or legally private). A government official or functionary is an official who is involved in public administration or government, through either election, appointment, selection, or employment. A bureaucrat or civil servant is a member of the bureaucracy. An elected official is a person who is an official by virtue of an election. Officials may also be appointed ex officio (by virtue of another office, often in a specified capacity, such as presiding, advisory, secretary). Some official positions may be inherited

Thank Your Lucky Stars (TV Series)
Thank Your Lucky Stars was a British television pop music show made by ABC Television, and broadcast on ITV from 1961 to 1966. Of all the show's presenters, Brian Matthew is perhaps the best remembered. Many of the top bands performed on it, and for millions of British teenagers it was essential viewing. As well as featuring British artists, it often included American guest stars. It would appear from the surviving footage that the bands mimed their latest 45. However, there was a period (around 1966) when artistes appearing on TYLS were no longer allowed to mime and were required to perform live. This policy was also adopted at approximately the same time by the BBC's Top of the Pops

Motorcycle Courier
A motorcycle courier, also known as a despatch rider or motorcycle messenger, is a courier using a motorcycle. Motorcycle couriers are common in the major urban centres of Europe, South America (especially Brazil), Asia and North America.[citation needed]Contents1 History 2 Types of motorcycle couriers 3 See also 4 ReferencesHistory[edit] At the end of the First World War in 1918, many British Army Royal Corps of Signals motorcycle despatch riders were demobilised and found employment difficult to come by. As a result, they purchased military surplus motorcycles, and began couriering in central London. Following World War II, increasing urban congestion in London saw riders on small motorcycles making scheduled runs with artwork or copy between printers and advertising agencies or newspapers. In London, radio controlled messengers became especially popular following the 1971 Royal Mail strike when motorcycles were fitted with bulky mini-cabs radio

Barcode Scanners
A barcode reader (or barcode scanner) is an electronic device that can read and output printed barcodes to a computer. Like a flatbed scanner, it consists of a light source, a lens and a light sensor translating optical impulses into electrical ones. Additionally, nearly all barcode readers contain decoder circuitry analyzing the barcode's image data provided by the sensor and sending the barcode's content to the scanner's output port.Contents1 Types of barcode scanners1.1 Technology1.1.1 Pen-type Scanners 1.1.2 Laser scanners 1.1.3 CCD readers (also known as LED scanners) 1.1.4 Camera-based readers 1.1.5 Omnidirectional barcode scanners 1.1.6 Cell phone cameras 1.1.7 Smartphones1.2 Housing2 Methods of connection2.1 Early serial interfaces 2.2 Proprietary interfaces 2.3 Keyboard wedge (e.g
