. As a result of television, the studios and companies sought to put audiences back in theaters. They used more techniques in presenting their films through widescreen and big-approach methods, such as Cinemascope, VistaVision, and Cinerama as well as gimmicks like 3-D film. Big production and spectacle films perfect for this gained popularity with the many historic and fantasy epics like ''The Robe (The Robe (film))'', ''The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men'', ''The Ten Commandments (The Ten Commandments (1956 film))'' (1956), ''The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad'', and ''Ben-Hur (Ben-Hur (1959 film))'' (1959). Other big-scoped films thrived internationally, too, such as Russian fantasy director Aleksandr Ptushko's mythological epics ''Sadko'', ''Ilya Muromets (Ilya Muromets (film))'', and ''Sampo'', and Japanese director Akira Kurosawa's historic ''Seven Samurai'', ''Throne of Blood'' and ''The Hidden Fortress''. Toshirō Mifune, who starred in those Kurosawa films, also starred in the color spectacle ''Samurai Trilogy''. The establishment of the Silurian system was followed by that of the Devonian system, an investigation in which Murchison assisted, both in the south-west of England and in the Rhineland. Soon afterwards Murchison projected an important geological campaign in Russia with the view of extending to that part of the Continent the classification he had succeeded in elaborating for the older rocks of western Europe. He was accompanied by Edouard de Verneuil (1805–1873) and Count Alexander von Keyserling (1815–1891), in conjunction with whom he produced a work on Russia and the Ural Mountains. The publication of this monograph in 1845 completes the first and most active half of Murchison’s scientific career. thumb right The Muscovy Company (File:Ivan the Terrible and Harsey.jpg) traded Russian produce to England. In one suggestion, it has been claimed that the Company of Merchant Adventurers to New Lands traded these ducks to Europe occasionally after 1550; Holderread (2001): pp.73-74 this chartered company became eventually known as the Muscovy Company or "Muscovite Company" so the ducks might thus have come to be called "Muscovite Ducks" or "Muscovy Ducks" in keeping with the common practice of attaching the importer's name to the products they sold. But while the Muscovite Company initiated vigorous trade with Russia, they hardly, if at all, traded produce from the Americas; thus they are unlikely to have traded ''C. moschata'' to a significant extent. In the Arab world, Assad mended relations with the Palestine Liberation Organization but relations with many Arab states, in particular Saudi Arabia, have been deteriorating. This is in part due to Assad's continued intervention in Lebanon and his alliance with Iran. Around the time of the 2008 South Ossetia war, Assad made an official visit to Russia. In an interview with the Russian TV channel Vesti (Vesti (TV channel)), he asserted that one cannot separate the events in the Caucasus from the US presence in Iraq, which he condemned as a direct threat to Syria's security." * Eurasia: The Kontinental Hockey League, based in Russia and also including teams in Belarus, Kazakhstan, Latvia and Slovakia, has operated with a salary cap since its creation in 2008. Kontinental Hockey League When the Russian Superleague was dissolved to make way to the modern-day KHL, the Kontinental Hockey League Players' Trade Union (KHLPTU) agreed to the implementation of a salary cap. When first implemented there was a salary cap, as well as a salary floor. As of the 2009-10 KHL season, the salary cap was 620 million rubles (Russian ruble) ($US18.3 million) and the salary floor was 200 million rubles ($US5.9 million). The KHL's cap operates despite the KHL's multinational nature, with teams in Belarus, Kazakhstan, Latvia, and (as of 2011–12 (2011–12 KHL season)) Slovakia, in addition to its primary base of Russia. The four non-Russian countries each use different currencies that currently float against the ruble. Kazakhstan has never sought to peg its currency (Kazakhstani tenge) to any other. Belarus has in the recent past attempted to peg its currency (Belarusian ruble) to the ruble and the US dollar (United States dollar) with limited success. Slovakia uses the euro, while Latvia's currency (Latvian lats) is closely tied to the euro via the country's membership in ERM II (European Exchange Rate Mechanism).
