Anthony Howard (journalist)

Anthony Michell Howard, CBE was a British journalist and writer. He was the deputy editor of The Observer, he selected the passages used in The Crossman Diaries, a book of entries taken from Richard Crossman's The Diaries of a Cabinet Minister. Howard was the son of Canon Guy Howard, a Church of England clergyman, Janet Rymer, he was educated at Purton Stoke School at Kintbury in Berkshire and Highgate Junior School, followed by Westminster School and Christ Church at the University of Oxford, where he read Jurisprudence. In 1954 he was chairman of the Oxford University Labour Club and, the following year, President of the Oxford Union. Howard had planned a career as a barrister, having been called to the Bar in 1956. Meanwhile, he was fulfilling his National service obligations in the army, during which he saw active service in the Royal Fusiliers during the Suez War, he wrote articles for the New Statesman about his reluctant involvement in the conflict, an action for which he was court-martialled.

Despite this early experience as a freelance contributor, he "stumbled" into his career as a journalist in 1958, beginning on Reynolds News as a political correspondent. Howard moved to the Manchester Guardian in 1959; the following year he was awarded a Harkness Fellowship to study in the United States, though he remained on the Guardian’s staff. Howard was political correspondent of the New Statesman from 1961 until 1964. An admirer of Labour leader Hugh Gaitskell during this period, he was a strong advocate of the democratic process: In January 1965 Howard joined The Sunday Times as its Whitehall correspondent reporting on the activities of senior civil servants, he saw his Whitehall brief as being in advance of the journalistic practices of that time. Cabinet Ministers were instructed by Prime Minister Harold Wilson's private secretary not to co-operate with Howard. Civil servants received similar instructions. Phillip Knightley reported a conversation with Howard in 2003 in which Howard had said Wilson "understood I was only trying to do my job but he had a job to do, his was more important than mine.

He made it plain that all conventional sources of information would remain shut until I was willing to return to the cosy but sham game of being a political correspondent." Wilson is thought by journalist John Simpson to have had a preference for secrecy and to have been fearful that such a practice would give his enemies and rivals a potential outlet. Howard, was soon invited to become The Observer’s chief Washington correspondent, serving in the role from 1966 to 1969 contributing a political column. During his period in America he made regular contributions to The World at One on Radio 4. "It got to where I was the World at One Washington correspondent", he once remarked. He was, absent from his post when President Johnson announced he would not seek re-election in the Presidential election of 1968, which did not help relations with David Astor, Observer editor at the time; as editor of the New Statesman, succeeding Richard Crossman, whose deputy he had been, he appointed Robin Cook as the magazine's parliamentary adviser in 1974, James Fenton, Christopher Hitchens and Martin Amis as literary editor in 1977.

Future New Statesman editor Peter Wilby, for whom Howard was a mentor, was a staff member during this period. Under Howard's editorship the magazine published a rare non-British contributor: Gabriel García Márquez in March 1974, on the overthrow of Salvador Allende's elected government in Chile the previous September. Out of a sense of balance, he featured a series of critiques of the British Left, by the magazine's former editor Paul Johnson, a drinking companion and friend of Howard's, whose political rightward drift was well advanced by then, he employed Auberon Waugh as a columnist. Howard was unable to halt the magazine's fall in circulation, however, he edited The Listener for two years. Howard was deputy editor of The Observer, where one of his journalist protégés was the journalist and novelist Robert Harris, whom he appointed as the newspaper's political correspondent, his professional relationship with the editor, Donald Trelford broke down over allegations that Trelford had allowed the newspaper's proprietor Tiny Rowland to interfere in editorial content.

After leaving The Observer, following an ill-fated editorial coup against Trelford, he was a reporter on Newsnight and Panorama, having presented Channel Four's Face the Press. According to Charter88 founder Anthony Barnett he opposed that organisation's petition, helped run the official committee dedicated to commemorating the 300th anniversary of the Glorious Revolution in 1988, his last editorial positions before turning freelance were at The Times as Obituaries editor and chief political book reviewer, though he contributed opinion columns to the newspaper until September 2005, when his regular column was discontinued. Howard assisted his long-standing friend Michael Heseltine on his memoirs, Life in the Jungle: My Autobiography, published an official biography Basil Hume: The Monk Cardinal. Howard married Carol Anne Gaynor, herself a journalist, in 1965, he did not leave his wife. Corinna Adam known by her married name, died in March 2012. Howard was appointed CBE in 1997, he di


An agnomen, in the Roman naming convention, was a nickname, just as the cognomen was initially. However, the cognomina became family names, so agnomina were needed to distinguish between named persons. However, as the agnomen was an additional and optional component in a Roman name, not all Romans had an agnomen. Pseudo-Probus uses the hero of the Punic Wars, Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus, as an example: propria hominum nomina in quattuor species dividuntur, praenomen nomen cognomen agnomen: praenomen, ut puta Publius, nomen Cornelius, cognomen Scipio, agnomen Africanus. Marius Victorinus further elucidates: Iam agnomen extrinsecus venit, et venit tribus modis, aut ex animo aut ex corpore aut ex fortuna: ex animo, sicut Superbus et Pius, ex corpore, sicut Crassus et Pulcher, ex fortuna, sicut Africanus et Creticus. (Now the agnomen comes from outside, in three styles, from personality or physique or achievements: From personality, such as Superbus and Pius, from physique, such as Crassus and Pulcher, or from achievements, such as Africanus and Creticus.

Africanus and the likes are known as victory titles. For example, Gaius Marcius Coriolanus earned his from the capture of Corioli. Latin agnōmen comes from ad "to" and nōmen "name"; as a minimum, a Roman agnomen is a name attached to an individual's full titulature after birth and formal naming by the family. True Roman nicknames replacing the individual's name in usage, are rare. One such example where the nickname replaced the individual's name in usage was the Emperor Caligula, where that name was used in place of, not along with, his full name, Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus. Caligula's praenomen was his nomen Julius, his cognomen Caesar; some agnomina were inherited. Caligula's agnomen came from the little boots he wore as part of his miniature soldier's uniform while accompanying his father Germanicus on campaigns in northern Germania. In turn, Germanicus received his agnomen in 9 BC, when it was posthumously awarded to his father Nero Claudius Drusus in honour of his Germanic victories.

At birth, Germanicus had been known as either Nero Claudius Drusus after his father or Tiberius Claudius Nero after his uncle. As with Caligula, Germanicus is referred to by his agnomen. An agnomen is not a real name. Parallel examples of agnomina from times are epithets like Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson or popular nicknames like "Iron" Mike Tyson or Earvin "Magic" Johnson.

Khun Narin

Khun Narin is a psychedelic music ensemble based out of the Phetchabun Province in Thailand. Led by Khun Narin, the group is known locally for their impromptu improvisational performances situated at backyard parties and parades; the group comprises a rotating line-up of native musicians of varying ages, from children to elderly men. Khun Narin were discovered via YouTube when music producer Josh Marcy happened upon videos of their live performances. With his assistance, they released their first album, titled Electric Phin Band, on August 26, 2014. Khun Narin were discovered in early 2013 by Los Angeles music producer Josh Marcy when he happened upon a YouTube video of the group performing live; the channel belonged to Thai phin player Beer Sitthichai, recording and uploading videos of Khun Narin since late 2010. The group was locally respected and known to perform at parties. A video of the group performing "Zombie" by The Cranberries piqued Marcy's interest and he contacted Innovative Leisure Records.

Innovative Leisure shared Marcy's interest in the band's music and paid for his plane trip to find them. After arriving in Thailand, Marcy contacted Peter Doolan, an American living in Bangkok, an admirer of the group and had contact with them. Josh Marcy recorded an improvised live session of Narin Phin to serve as the content for the album Electric Phin Band, released on August 26, 2014 by Innovative Leisure Records. Critical response was favorable and the band was lauded for their skilled and lively performances; the group followed up that release in 2016 with the release of II, issued by Innovative Leisure Records. The music of Khun Narin is grounded on Thai and Laotian melodies informed by garage music and psychedelic rock. Critics have noted a resemblance to the music of Incredible String Band. Despite comparisons, the group claims to have had little exposure to more celebrated rock acts; when asked about Khun Narin's connection to psychedelic music, Marcy responded "It just happens to have turned out in a way that sounds familiar, in that vein, to us.

They'd never heard things like that. Electric Phin Band II Khun Narin at Bandcamp Khun Narin discography at Discogs Khun Narin discography at MusicBrainz

Television timeout

A television timeout is a break in a televised live event for the purpose of television broadcasting. This allows commercial broadcasters to take an advertising break, or issue their required hourly station identification, without causing viewers to miss part of the action. Programs making use of timeouts are live-action sporting events. However, other live programs make use of timeouts for advertising purposes, such as the Academy Awards and the Eurovision Song Contest. American football: The National Football League requires twenty commercial breaks per game or 16 starting in the 2018 season, with ten or 8 starting in the 2018 season in each half; these breaks run two minutes in length. Of the ten commercial breaks per half or 8 starting in the 2018 season, two are mandatory: at the end of the first or third quarter, at the two-minute warning for the end of the half; the remaining eight or 6 breaks starting in the 2018 season are optional. The timeouts can be applied after field goal tries, conversion attempts for both one and two points following touchdowns, changes in possession either by punts or turnovers, kickoffs.

The breaks are called during stoppages due to injury, instant replay challenges, when either of the participating teams uses one of its set of timeouts, if the network needs to catch up on its commercial advertisement schedule. The arrangement for college football contests is the same, except for the absence of the two-minute warning. Association football: Due to the continuous live action from opening kick throughout a half to the whistle at the conclusion of stoppage time, there are no formal television timeouts or commercial breaks. There are no commercial breaks during any extra periods or during any penalty shootouts in FIFA World Cup matches. Baseball: No formal television timeout, but the interval between the end of a half-inning is set between two and three minutes for televised games, during pitching changes that happen in the middle of an inning for the pitcher to warm up. Basketball College men: At the first dead ball after 4-minute intervals. Additionally, the first 30-second team timeout in the second half is expanded to a television timeout.

If free throws are to be shot, a timeout is taken first. Effective with the 2015–16 season, when a team calls a timeout within the 30-second window before the next scheduled TV timeout break, the called timeout takes the place of the scheduled TV timeout. A similar rule in the NBA is used when a 20-second timeout is called but a team's mandatory timeout point has been reached. College women and FIBA: Media timeouts are taken at the first dead ball after the 5:00 mark in each quarter. Any called timeout before the 5-minute mark of a quarter becomes the media timeout. Organisers have the option in FIBA play to implement a television timeout at the next dead ball following the same point. NBA: There must be two timeouts in each quarter. In each quarter, if no team has called a timeout before the 6:59 mark, a timeout is charged to the home team, if no subsequent timeout is taken prior to the 2:59 mark, a timeout is charged to the team not charged with a timeout; the first and second timeouts in each quarter are two minutes 45 seconds for locally televised games, three minutes 15 seconds for nationally televised games.

Other timeouts in a quarter are one minute 15 seconds in length. Bowling: Varies. Cricket: Generally at the end of some overs as the field switches around, when a wicket falls, during drinks breaks and during intervals. In the 2009 season of the Indian Premier League of Twenty20 cricket, the halfway point of each innings contained a seven-and-a-half minute stoppage of play, two-thirds of which were devoted to advertising time. After complaints by viewers and players, these breaks were replaced in the following year by two compulsory "strategic timeouts" of two-and-a-half minutes per innings. One must be taken by the bowling team between the 6th to 10th overs, the batting team between the 11th to 16th overs. Curling: at the conclusion of each end; the game resumes before the commercial break ends, so when the broadcast comes back on a few rocks will have been thrown. Ice hockey NHL: Commercial time-outs are taken after 4-minute intervals at the first stoppages of play after the 14:00, 10:00 and 6:00 marks in each period when both teams are at strength.

However, there are no commercial time-outs after a goal, after an icing, during a power-play, during the last 30 seconds of the first and second period or last two minutes of the third period. There must be at least one minute of play between commercial time-outs and an effort must be done to identify the situations where a video review might happen in order to NOT go into a commercial time-out. During outdoor games, a hard TV timeout is called at the 10:00 mark of the third period, play is stopped. Additionally there are no commercial or team, granted during a shootout. Due to these restrictions, it is possible that not all of the scheduled breaks are taken, in which case sometimes a network will take a timeout at the conclusion of the game to make up for it before signing off on the broadcast.
