Tolkien Orcs and Uruk Hai


Im sure this question has been raised hundreds of times before (I saw someone mention it in another thread, but the question wasnt really addressed). Basically, I was wondering:

1) Is there a difference between Orcs and Goblins
2) Are Uruk Hai a cross between Orcs and Men, or Orcs and Goblins?

I got confused, because i've heard people say that orcs and goblins are the same thing, but i was sure that the two towers talked about Uruk hai from Isengard, Orcs from Mordor and goblins from the north. Hoom hum. Well if anyone can clarify this, it would be much appreciated.

The 'hum' generated by an electric car is not in fact the noise of the engine, but that of the driver's self-righteousness oscillating at a high frequency.
