Bill Finger American comic strip and comic book writer and co-creator of Batman

Milton Finger, known professionally and personally as Bill Finger, was an American comic strip, comic book, film and television writer who was the uncredited co-creator of the DC Comics superhero character Batman. Despite making major contributions as an innovative writer, visionary mythos/world builder and illustration architect, Finger was often relegated to ghostwriter status on many comics -- including Batman, and Green Lantern. While Kane privately admitted in a 1980s audio interview with his autobiographer that Finger was responsible for "50-75% of all the creativity in Batman," for decades he publicly denied Finger had been anything more than a subcontractor executing Kane’s ideas. As a result, Finger died in obscurity and poverty while the Batman brand – and Kane – amassed international fame and wealth. In the 2000s, Finger biographer Marc Tyler Nobleman’s research uncovered previously unknown heirs. At the urging of Nobleman, the online comics fan community and others, Finger's granddaughter revived the fight to restore his lost legacy, which continued for years. In 2015, DC Comics’ parent company conditionally agreed to recognize Finger’s intellectual property claim as co-creator of the Batman characters and mythos, officially adding his name, going forward, to the “created by” credit line Kane had gotten contractually guaranteed in 1939.

The finger Hand gesture

In Western culture, "the finger", the middle finger or the rude finger is an obscene hand gesture. The gesture communicates moderate to extreme contempt, and is roughly equivalent in meaning to "fuck me", "fuck you", "shove it up your ass/arse", "up yours" or "go fuck yourself". It is performed by showing the back of a hand that has only the middle finger extended upwards, though in some locales, the thumb is extended. Extending the finger is considered a symbol of contempt in several cultures, especially in the Western world. Many cultures use similar gestures to display their disrespect, although others use it to express pointing without intentional disrespect. The gesture is usually used to express contempt but can also be used humorously or playfully.

Burnt mound

A burnt mound is an archaeological feature consisting of a mound of shattered stones and charcoal, normally with an adjacent hearth and trough. The trough could be rock-cut, wood-lined or clay-lined to ensure it was watertight. Radiocarbon dates vary quite widely, the earliest being late Neolithic, with clusters of dates between 1900–1500 BC and 1200–800 BC, with some outliers in the Iron Age. There are also some dates that go into the early Medieval period. The technology used at burnt mounds has much greater antiquity and is found from the Palaeolithic onwards.

Coffee cupping, or coffee tasting, is the practice of observing the tastes and aromas of brewed coffee. It is a professional practice but can be done informally by anyone or by professionals known as "Q Graders". A standard coffee cupping procedure involves deeply sniffing the coffee, then slurping the coffee from a spoon so it is aerated and spread across the tongue. The coffee taster attempts to measure aspects of the coffee's taste, specifically the body, sweetness, acidity, flavour, and aftertaste. Since coffee beans embody telltale flavours from the region where they were grown, cuppers may attempt to identify the coffee's origin.
