Lake Washington (Mississippi)

Lake Washington is an oxbow lake in Washington County, United States. Once part of the contiguous Mississippi River, Lake Washington formed when the river changed its course about 1300 AD. Lake vegetation includes cypress trees. Fish species found in Lake Washington include bowfin, buffalo, carp, channel catfish, drum, flathead catfish, green sunfish, hybrid white bass, largemouth bass, minnows and yellow bass; the first permanent residence in Washington County was located on Lake Washington. Frederick G. Turnbull settled on the lake in 1826 and named his place Linden The home located on the site, was erected in 1914 and was built by P. L. is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Another pre-Civil War mansion, Mount Holly, constructed on the east shore of Lake Washington, is listed on the NRHP; the Junius Ward home was built at Erwin in 1826 as a log cabin, still standing today and is still owned by the same family. The Law House, an impressive mansion overlooking the lake built in 1902, was ordered as a kit from the Sears & Roebuck Company, was used in the filming of the 2012 movie Haunted.

Roy's Store is located on the north shore of the lake, is noted for being in business at that location for over 100 years. Most of the land surrounding Lake Washington is used extensively for agriculture; this has made the lake vulnerable to runoff of fertilizer and herbicides. In 1973, the lake was closed to commercial fishing due to contamination, in 1990, a blue-green algal bloom formed in the lake, which killed 14 dogs that drank from the water. Since extensive efforts have been made to reduce the lake's pollution

UEFA Women's Euro 2017 qualifying

The UEFA Women's Euro 2017 qualifying competition was a women's football competition that determined the 15 teams joining the automatically qualified hosts Netherlands in the UEFA Women's Euro 2017 final tournament. A total of 46 UEFA member national teams, with Andorra entering for the first time at senior women's level, entered the qualifying competition; the qualifying competition consisted of three rounds: Preliminary round: The eight lowest-ranked teams were drawn into two groups of four teams. Each group was played in single round-robin format at one of the teams which were pre-selected as hosts; the two group winners advanced to the qualifying group stage. Qualifying group stage: The 40 teams are drawn into eight groups of five teams; each group was played in home-and-away round-robin format. The eight group winners and the six best runners-up qualified directly for the final tournament, while the two remaining runners-up advance to the play-offs. Play-offs: The two teams played home-and-away two-legged matches to determine the last qualified team.

In the preliminary round and qualifying group stage, the teams are ranked according to points. If two or more teams are equal on points on completion of a group, the following tie-breaking criteria are applied, in the order given, to determine the rankings: Higher number of points obtained in the mini-tournament or group matches played among the teams in question. If this procedure does not lead to a decision, criteria 6 to 11 apply. Lower disciplinary points total based only on yellow and red cards received in the mini-tournament or group matches. To determine the six best runners-up from the qualifying group stage, the results against the teams in fifth place are discarded; the following criteria are applied: Higher number of points. In the play-offs, the team that scores more goals on aggregate over the two legs qualifies for the final tournament. If the aggregate score is level, the away goals rule is applied, i.e. the team that scores more goals away from home over the two legs advances.

If away goals are equal, extra time is played. The away goals rule is again applied after extra time, i.e. if there are goals scored during extra time and the aggregate score is still level, the visiting team advances by virtue of more away goals scored. If no goals are scored during extra time, the tie is decided by penalty shoot-out; the qualifying matches are played on dates that fall within the FIFA Women's International Match Calendar.
