The Colonial was an American automobile manufactured in Boston by the Colonial Motors Corporation from 1921 until 1922.
Although the company pledged to produce "in excess of 100 cars" during its first year in business no more than a dozen are believed to have left the factory. Each car had a 130-inch wheelbase and a six-cylinder Beaver engine. A complete line of open and closed body styles was advertised, but the few completed models all appear to have been open. Disc wheels were a feature of all models, and prices were approximately $5,000 for all body styles.
Domination is a role-playing game published by StarChilde Publications in 1989.
Domination is a science fiction system set in a near-future in which the Earth has been conquered by the alien Kalotions. The player characters are members of the human resistance. Players select character classes (commando, intelligence agent, pilot, etc.) that determine which skills the character has. The game briefly describes the Kalotions, their technology, and the alien subject races they employ in oppressing the Earthlings. It also covers the major resistance groups, their key leaders, and common modern weapons.
Domination was designed by Blaine Pardoe, and published by StarChilde Publications in 1989 as a digest-sized 100-page book.
Lawrence Schick notes that the "combat rules are simple", and comments that this game is "A brief set of rules by current standards, with the mere outline of a campaign setting."
Dominance and submission (also called D/s) is a set of behaviors, customs, and rituals involving the submission of one person to another in an erotic episode or lifestyle. It is a subset of BDSM.
Physical contact is not a necessity, and D/s can even be conducted anonymously over the telephone, email, or other messaging systems. In other cases, it can be intensely physical, sometimes crossing into sadomasochism. In D/s, both parties take pleasure or erotic enjoyment from either dominating or being dominated. Those who take the superior position are called dominants—Doms (male) or Dommes (female)—while those who take the subordinate position are called submissives—or subs (male or female). A switch is an individual who plays either role. Two switches together may negotiate and exchange roles several times in a session. "Dominatrix" is a term usually reserved for a female professional dominant who dominates others for pay.
Note, it is common for writers to capitalise the "D" in Dominant but leave the "s" in lowercase for the submissive. Many extend this to His/Hers, Him/Her, He/She, etc., to make it clear when they are referring to a Dominant.
