The 1986 FBI Miami shootout was a gun battle that occurred on April 11, 1986 in an unincorporated region of Dade County in South Florida (renamed Miami-Dade on November 13, 1997) between eight FBI agents and two serial bank robbers. During the firefight, FBI Special Agents Jerry L. Dove and Benjamin P. Grogan were killed, while five other agents were wounded. The two robbery suspects, William Russell Matix and Michael Lee Platt, were also killed. The incident is infamous in FBI history and is well-studied in law enforcement circles. Despite outnumbering the suspects 4 to 1, the agents found themselves pinned down by suppressive rifle fire and unable to respond effectively. Although both Matix and Platt were hit multiple times during the shootout, Platt fought on and continued to injure and kill agents. This incident led to the introduction of more powerful handguns in the FBI and many police departments around the United States.
The 10mm Auto is a semi-automatic pistol cartridge first developed by Jeff Cooper and introduced in 1983 with the Bren Ten pistol -- notable for having been one of Sonny Crockett's pistols in the television series Miami Vice. At full potential, 10mm ammunition produces energy slightly higher than the average .357 Magnum load and can retain more kinetic energy at 100 yards than the .45 ACP has at the muzzle. Although the 10mm was selected for service by the FBI in 1989 from the aftermath of the Miami shootout, the cartridge was later decommissioned -- except by the Hostage Rescue Team and Special Weapons and Tactics Teams -- after their Firearms Training Unit eventually concluded that its recoil was excessive in terms of training for average agents' and police officers' competency. These issues led to the creation and following replacement to a shorter version of the 10mm that exists today as the .40 S&W.
Old and busted: the largest Godzilla yet, dubbed Shin Jojira. The new hotness: the newly released 10mm Glock with a 6" barrel, dubbed Glockzilla.

Silk is a brand of soy milk and other dairy-substitute products, including soy yogurt, almond milk and coconut milk owned by WhiteWave Foods; the name "Silk" is a portmanteau of "soy" and "milk". Silk was founded by Steve Demos in Boulder, Colorado in 1978. The first product was introduced in March 1996 by WhiteWave, Inc. at the Natural Foods Expo in Anaheim, California. In the years that followed, Silk became a successful, world-wide, organic brand. In January 2010, the company introduced Silk Pure Almond, an almond milk, and its first non-soy-based product.
The Amsterdam Tram is a tram network in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The network dates back to 1875 and is the largest tram network in the Netherlands and one of the largest in Europe. Since 1900, they have been powered by electricity, at 600 V DC. At the terminus station of almost every tram route is a turning loop, so that the route can be operated by unidirectional trams. The only exception is Amstelveen Binnenhof, one of the termini of route 5, which must therefore be served by bidirectional vehicles. Since 1943, it has been operated by municipal public transport operator GVB, which also runs the Amsterdam metro and the city bus and ferry services.
