WEFOUNDBlood of the Four: Library Edition


The Four is a 2012 Chinese-Hong Kong wuxia film directed by Gordon Chan and Janet Chun . It is the first film adaptation of Woon Swee Oan 's novel series Si Da Ming Bu (四大名捕; The Four Great Constables ), which has previously been adapted to a television series . In all adaptations and interpretations, the nicknames of the Four remained the same — Emotionless, Iron Hands, Life Snatcher and Cold Blood. They dedicated their special skills to the service of their chief, Master Zhuge, in solving crimes and apprehending powerful criminals.

The film is the first in an announced trilogy, the second instalment of which started shooting in 2012. [2] The Four II was released on December 6, 2013. The last film, The Four III , was released on August 22, 2014.

The movie is set during the reign of Emperor Huizong in the late Northern Song Dynasty . The government department known as the "Department Six" customarily has full jurisdiction over all criminal investigations in the imperial capital. Department Six is well-staffed and operates in a highly disciplined manner. Their chief, Commandant Liu, ranks the investigators by clearance rate and dangles the prospect of an operator to be named one of the "Great Four".

Blood is a body fluid in humans and other animals that delivers necessary substances such as nutrients and oxygen to the cells and transports metabolic waste products away from those same cells. [1]

Vertebrate blood is bright red when its hemoglobin is oxygenated and dark red when it is deoxygenated. Some animals, such as crustaceans and mollusks , use hemocyanin to carry oxygen, instead of hemoglobin. Insects and some mollusks use a fluid called hemolymph instead of blood, the difference being that hemolymph is not contained in a closed circulatory system . In most insects, this "blood" does not contain oxygen-carrying molecules such as hemoglobin because their bodies are small enough for their tracheal system to suffice for supplying oxygen.

Jawed vertebrates have an adaptive immune system , based largely on white blood cells. White blood cells help to resist infections and parasites. Platelets are important in the clotting of blood. Arthropods , using hemolymph, have hemocytes as part of their immune system .

A valve basically lets something go one way but not the other. In this case, that “something” is blood.  So, the valves of the heart allow blood to go forward but not leak backwards . This is important because when the heart pumps, it pushes blood forward to the body where it is needed. The valves of the heart make sure this oxygen-rich blood can’t leak backwards into the heart.

There are 4 valves of the heart , 2 on the left side and 2 on the right side. The left side of the heart can be thought of as the hearts powerful engine. Each side of the heart has a collecting chamber on top (atrium), and a pumping chamber on the bottom (ventricle). There is a valve between the upper and lower chamber, and there is a valve between the lower pumping chamber and the body.

The valve between the upper (left atrium) and lower chambers (left ventricle) on the left hand side is called the mitral valve . The valve between the lower pumping chamber (left ventricle) and the body is called the aortic valve .

The major (or great) blood vessels of the heart are the larger arteres and veins that attach to the atria and ventricles and transport blood to and from the systemic circulatory system and the pulmonary circulatory system.

Blood exits the right ventricle through the pulmonary trunk artery . Approximately two inches superior to the base of the heart, this vessel branches into the left and right pulmonary arteries, which transport blood into the lungs.

Blood passes from the left atrium into the left ventricle. From here, it is pumped into the systemic circulatory system through a larger, elastic artery called the aorta .
