Fuse (TV channel)
Fuse is an American digital cable and satellite television channel that first launched in 1994 and is dedicated to music. Fuse's current programming targets young adults between 18 and 34 years old, with the channel's music content offered through its website, its video on demand service, through its "Fuse Mobile" service; as of February 2015, Fuse was available to 71,491,000 pay television households in the United States. With the loss of carriage on Xfinity and Verizon Fios on January 1, 2019 and a number of cable operators discontinuing their carriage since 2015, it has an availability of around 38 million pay television households; the channel launched on July 1, 1994, as MuchMusic USA. CHUM would sell its 50% stake in the network to Cablevision, but allowed the continued use of the "MuchMusic" name under a brand licensing agreement; the network mirrored the schedule of its Canadian equivalent with U. S. advertising, but with French-language programming and programs licensed from MTV and VH1 blacked out and replaced with reruns of other programs or with infomercials.
By 2001, MuchMusic USA began to diverge from its Canadian parent. By December 2002, MMUSA had replaced the entirety of its schedule with domestically produced programming, with the only MuchMusic program remaining being RapCity. After CHUM revoked its licensing agreement for the U. S. channel to use the MuchMusic brand, Cablevision announced that it would relaunch MMUSA as Fuse in 2003. The channel relaunched as Fuse on May 19, 2003, with the debut of the critically acclaimed hip-hop comedy series Kung Faux. Fuse focused on more underground and indie music genres. Overtime, the channel would cover a much broader range of music genres such as pop, urban and heavy metal while still encompassing underground indie music scenes and popular culture. In its early days, Fuse programming was music-intensive; the network indirectly bashed MTV with a slogan touting Fuse as the channel "where the music went." Fuse's advertising in this period, by New York-based Amalgamated, generated controversy both through its more direct criticism of MTV, through its parodies that of the iPod ad campaign.
Viacom, corporate owner of MTV and, for a short while, the former owner of many of Fuse's current sister properties, protested when a Fuse billboard appeared across from its headquarters featuring Sally Struthers' plea to "save the music video." In 2008, Fuse became the exclusive television partner for some major music events, including signing a three-year deal to air the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Fuse works with the Van's Warped Tour, Voodoo Experience, Lollapalooza, airing interviews and live news from the festivals; the same year, as part of a corporate reorganization, Cablevision moved Fuse from its Rainbow Media division to its Madison Square Garden unit – aligning it with a group of co-owned music venues across New York City. In 2009, Fuse debuted a two-minute music news program called The Daily Noise, updated courtesy of Billboard Magazine. In April 2010, Cablevision's MSG unit, including Fuse, was spun off as a separate publicly traded company, The Madison Square Garden Company.
On June 20, 2010, Fuse simulcast the 2010 MuchMusic Video Awards, marking its first broadcast of MuchMusic programming since its relaunch as Fuse. Other MuchMusic programming would return including The Wedge and Video on Trial. Blink-182 and former +44 singer/bassist Mark Hoppus began hosting his own weekly television series on Fuse that year, titled Hoppus on Music; the show has featured a star-studded lineup of guests, including Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, Foo Fighters, Kid Rock, Linkin Park, Snoop Dogg, Phil Collins, Ben Folds, Kid Cudi and Airwaves, Simple Plan and Ozzy Osbourne. On June 28, 2011, Vevo and Fuse entered into a video content partnership; as part of the partnership, Fuse.tv syndicates Vevo's music video and entertainment programming, including exclusive music video premieres, live music events, produced series. Through its Fuse Presents series, the network has presented live concerts from various venues from those owned by MSG; these have included: July 25, 2008: Fall Out Boy live from the Chicago Theatre June 1, 2009: Dave Matthews Band live from the Beacon Theatre September 11, 2009: Jay-Z concert live from Madison Square Garden.

South African Music Awards
The South African Music Awards are the Recording Industry of South Africa's music industry awards, established in 1995. The ceremony is held in late-April or May every year, with the judging process starting in November of the previous year; the nominations are announced at the end of March. The winners receive a gold-plated statuette called a SAMA; the show has been held at the Super Bowl in Sun City, with the exception of three years, broadcast live on national broadcaster, SABC. The ceremony features live performances as once-off collaborations by a selection of nominees; as of the 21st SAMAs, in 2015, there are a total of thirty-six categories awarded. These categories change from year to year to accommodate changes in music styles and changes in popularity of existing genres; these generes include Adult Contemporary, Classical, Faith, Kwaito, Pop, Reggae, RnB, Rock and Traditional. At times genres are grouped together into a single category based on their popularity amongst a certain demographic.
These are the top five award categories of the SAMAs. They were first introduced at the ceremony in 1995, with exception of Album of the Year, introduced in 2007. Album of the Year Best Newcomer of the Year Best Female Artist of the Year Best Male Artist of the Year Best Duo or Group of the Year The winners of the following SAMAs are not chosen by a panel of judges: Record of the Year: Determined by a public vote, traditionally by SMS As per the committee guidelines, only citizens and permanent residents of South Africa are eligible for a nomination. At the beginning of the adjudication process a Supervisory Committee is setup, It consists of two members from each of five “super genre” categories, which are Global Charts, Traditional and Jazz or Classical; this committee oversees the entire SAMA ceremony production process, along with the Steering, General Rules, Vetting Committees. These committees are composed of unpaid volunteers from record companies and industry stakeholders; the judges are drawn from a wide spectrum to include journalists, musicians and academics.
There are five judges per genre category, based on the judge’s field of expertise. The judge’s anonymity is protected by the Steering committee, who ensure the judge’s do not influence each other; the entire adjudication process takes place between September and February, with the nominees announced in March. The first phase takes place between December; the Steering Committee first determine the award categories and judging criteria for the entries. A panel of judges is elected and a call for entries takes place in November; the entries are vetted to comply with the committee rules, genre guidelines. In this genre category phase, the judges receive a copy of the entries by the end of December; the entries are scored against the criteria set by the Steering Committee. The score cards are submitted online, along with recommendations for the Top Five category nominees; the Top Five categories are nominated from the same pool of entries. An electronic judging system calculates the results, which are audited by an independent firm at the end of January.
This final phase of adjudication evaluates the Top Five categories. One judge from each genre category is selected to be part of the first round of voting; these judges select their top three entries, in their respective genres, taking into account the recommendations from other judges. The independent auditing firm ensures that a finalist in the Top Five has qualified for a nomination in their respective genre. Once the auditors have confirmed the Top Five finalist list, the last round of voting begins. All the judges participate in this round to determine the winners of each Top Five categories; the first awards ceremony was in 1995, there have been 21 editions to date. At the 1st South African Music Awards, kwaito artist Arthur Mafokate performed a simulation of anal sex on a dancer; this was done as an act of defiance to the organisers, as he felt there was a need for a Kwaito Award. The following year the organiser introduced the award category, it had been three years since the first democratic elections in South Africa and a new national anthem had been introduced at the beginning of the 1997.
At the 3rd South African Music Awards, popular kwaito-group Boom Shaka decided to re-create the anthem in a "funky" on-stage performance, that caused a "public blacklash". Towards the end of the five-hour-long 7th South African Music Awards, Brenda Fassie accused a prominent journalist of being a homosexual - using the derogatory slang word moffie, she went on to further accuse him of destroying her with the articles. At an after-party, she was seen fighting with Mandoza and demanding that he hand over his award as it was "her award"; the SAMA22 was the first awards show to be broadcast live in its entirety in 360° video, with Virtual Reality made possible by Unreal Industries.

Hispanic and Latino Americans
Hispanic Americans and Latino Americans are Americans who are descendants of people from Spain and Latin America, respectively. More it includes all Americans who speak the Spanish language natively, who self-identify as Hispanic or Latino, whether of full or partial ancestry. For the 2010 United States Census, people counted as "Hispanic" or "Latino" were those who identified as one of the specific Hispanic or Latino categories listed on the census questionnaire as well as those who indicated that they were "other Spanish, Hispanic or Latino." The national origins classified as Hispanic or Latino by the United States Census Bureau are the following: Argentine, Colombian, Puerto Rican, Mexican, Costa Rican, Honduran, Panamanian, Bolivian, Spanish American, Ecuadorian, Peruvian and Venezuelan. Brazilian Americans, other Portuguese-speaking Latino groups, non-Spanish speaking Latino groups in the United States are defined as "Latino" by some U. S. government agencies. The Census Bureau uses the terms Hispanic and Latino interchangeably."Origin" can be viewed as the ancestry, nationality group, lineage or country of birth of the person or the person's parents or ancestors before their arrival in the United States.
People who identify as Spanish, Hispanic or Latino may be of any race. As one of the only two designated categories of ethnicity in the United States, Hispanics form a pan-ethnicity incorporating a diversity of inter-related cultural and linguistic heritages. Most Hispanic Americans are of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Salvadoran, Guatemalan or Colombian origin; the predominant origin of regional Hispanic populations varies in different locations across the country. Hispanic Americans are the second fastest-growing ethnic group by percentage growth in the United States after Asian Americans. Hispanic/Latinos overall are the second-largest ethnic group in the United States, after non-Hispanic whites. Hispanics have lived within what is now the United States continuously since the founding of St. Augustine by the Spanish in 1565. After Native Americans, Hispanics are the oldest ethnic group to inhabit much of what is today the United States. Many have Native American ancestry. Spain colonized large areas of what is today the American Southwest and West Coast, as well as Florida.
Its holdings included present-day California, New Mexico, Nevada and Texas, all of which were part of the Republic of Mexico from its independence in 1821 until the end of the Mexican–American War in 1848. Conversely, Hispanic immigrants to the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area derive from a broad spectrum of Latin American states. A study published in 2015 in the American Journal of Human Genetics, based on 23andMe data from 8,663 self-described Latinos, estimated that Latinos in the United States carried a mean of 65.1% European ancestry, 18.0% Native American ancestry, 6.2% African ancestry. The study found that self-described Latinos from the Southwest those along the Mexican border, had the highest mean levels of Native American ancestry; the terms "Hispanic" and "Latino" refer to an ethnicity. Hispanic people may share some commonalities in their language, culture and heritage. According to the Smithsonian Institution, the term "Latino" includes peoples with Portuguese roots, such as Brazilians, as well as those of Spanish-language origin.
In the United States, many Hispanics and Latinos are of both Native American ancestry. Others are predominantly of European ancestry or of Amerindian ancestry. Many Hispanics and Latinos from the Caribbean, as well as other regions of Latin America where African slavery was widespread, may be of sub-Saharan African descent as well; the difference between the terms Hispanic and Latino is confusing to some. The U. S. Census Bureau equates the two terms and defines them as referring to anyone from Spain and the Spanish-speaking countries of the Americas. After the Mexican–American War concluded in 1848, term Hispanic or Spanish American was used to describe the Hispanos of New Mexico within the American Southwest; the 1970 United States Census controversially broadened the definition to "a person of Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race". This is now the common formal and colloquial definition of the term within the United States, outside of New Mexico.
The term Latino has developed a number of definitions. One definition of Latino is "a Latin male in the United States"; this is the oldest and the original definition used in the United States, first used in 1946. This definition encompasses Spanish speakers from both Europe and the Americas. Under this definition, immigrants from Spain and immigrants from Latin America are both Latino; this definition is consistent with the 21st-century usage by the U. S. Census Bureau and OMB, as the two agencies use Latino interchangeably. A definition of Latino is as a condensed form of the term "Latino-Americano", the Spanish word for Latin-American, or someone who comes from Latin America. Under this definition a Mexican American or Puerto Rican, for example, is both a Hispanic and a Latino. A Brazilian American is a Latino by this definition, which includes those of Portuguese-speaking origin from Latin America. However, an immigrant from Spain would be classified as European or White by American sta
The Miami News
The Miami News was an evening newspaper in Miami, Florida. It was the media market competitor to the morning edition of the Miami Herald for most of the 20th century; the paper started publishing in May 1896. The Metropolis had become a daily paper of eight pages by 1903. On June 4, 1923, former Ohio governor James M. Cox bought the Metropolis and renamed it the Miami Daily News-Metropolis. On January 4, 1925 the newspaper became the Miami Daily News, published its first Sunday edition. Cox had a new building erected for the newspaper, the Miami News Tower was dedicated on July 25, 1925; this building became famous as the Freedom Tower. On July 25, 1925, the News published a 508 page edition, which still holds the record for the largest page-count for a newspaper; the News was edited by Bill Baggs from 1957 until his death 1969. After that, it was edited by Sylvan Meyer until 1973, its final editor was Howard Kleinberg, a longtime staffer and author of a comprehensive history of the newspaper. The paper had the distinction of posting its own demise on the final obituary page.
In 1973, the News moved in with the Knight Ridder-owned Herald at One Herald Plaza, sharing production facilities with its morning rival while maintaining a separate editorial staff. A 30-year joint operating agreement inked in 1966 made the Herald responsible for all non-editorial aspects of production, including circulation and promotion. Citing losses of $9 million per year, declining circulation and owner Cox Newspapers unable to find a suitable buyer to save the paper, the News ceased publication on December 31, 1988; some of the newspaper's staff and all of its assets and archives were moved to nearby Cox publication The Palm Beach Post in West Palm Beach. An entire searchable archive of the newspaper is available online via Newspapers.com. A small selection of photographs were donated to the Archives and Research Center of HistoryMiami. Notable former employees include writer Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Dorothy Misener Jurney and author Helen Muir, Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Don Wright, Boston Globe columnist Adrian Walker, photographer Michael O'Brien, columnist John Keasler and best-selling author Dary Matera, who served as a general assignment reporter from 1977 until 1982.
