Banco Nacional de Crédito
Banco Nacional de Crédito abbreviated as BNC, is a Venezuelan commercial bank headquartered in Caracas. It was founded in 1977 in San Antonio del Táchira as Banco Tequendama branch of the Banco Tequendama Colombia. In 2002 starts the purchase of the bank by group of Venezuelan investors, completing the acquisition in 2003, year in which changes its name to Banco Nacional de Crédito. In 2009 BNC acquired the Stanford Bank Venezuela controlled by Stanford Financial Group, for $111 m
Weapon of mass destruction
A weapon of mass destruction is a nuclear, chemical, biological, or any other weapon that can kill and bring significant harm to a large number of humans or cause great damage to human-made structures, natural structures, or the biosphere. The scope and usage of the term has evolved and been disputed signifying more politically than technically. Coined in reference to aerial bombing with chemical explosives during World War II, it has come to refer to large-scale weaponry of other technologies, such as chemical, radiological, or nuclear; the first use of the term "weapon of mass destruction" on record is by Cosmo Gordon Lang, Archbishop of Canterbury, in 1937 in reference to the aerial bombardment of Guernica, Spain: Who can think at this present time without a sickening of the heart of the appalling slaughter, the suffering, the manifold misery brought by war to Spain and to China? Who can think without horror of what another widespread war would mean, waged as it would be with all the new weapons of mass destruction?
At the time, nuclear weapons had not been developed. Japan conducted research on biological weapons, chemical weapons had seen wide battlefield use in World War I, they were outlawed by the Geneva Protocol of 1925. Italy used mustard agent against civilians and soldiers in Ethiopia in 1935–36. Following the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that ended World War II and during the Cold War, the term came to refer more to non-conventional weapons; the application of the term to nuclear and radiological weapons is traced by William Safire to the Russian phrase "Оружие массового поражения" – oruzhiye massovogo porazheniya. William Safire credits James Goodby with tracing what he considers the earliest known English-language use soon after the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki: a communique from a 15 November 1945, meeting of Harry Truman, Clement Attlee and Mackenzie King referred to "weapons adaptable to mass destruction."Safire says Bernard Baruch used that exact phrase in 1946.
The phrase found its way into the first resolution the United Nations General assembly adopted in January 1946 in London, which used the wording "the elimination from national armaments of atomic weapons and of all other weapons adaptable to mass destruction." The resolution created the Atomic Energy Commission. An exact use of this term was given in a lecture "Atomic Energy as an Atomic Problem" by J. Robert Oppenheimer, he delivered the lecture to the Foreign Service and the State Department, on 17 September 1947. It is a far reaching control which would eliminate the rivalry between nations in this field, which would prevent the surreptitious arming of one nation against another, which would provide some cushion of time before atomic attack, therefore before any attack with weapons of mass destruction, which would go a long way toward removing atomic energy at least as a source of conflict between the powers; the term was used in the introduction to the hugely influential U. S. government document known as NSC 68 written in 1950.
During a speech at Rice University on 12 September 1962, President John F. Kennedy spoke of not filling space "with weapons of mass destruction, but with instruments of knowledge and understanding." The following month, during a televised presentation about the Cuban Missile Crisis on 22 October 1962, Kennedy made reference to "offensive weapons of sudden mass destruction."An early use of the exact phrase in an international treaty is in the Outer Space Treaty of 1967, but the treaty provides no definition of the phrase, the treaty categorically prohibits the stationing of "weapons" and the testing of "any type of weapon" in outer space, in addition to its specific prohibition against placing in orbit, or installing on celestial bodies, "any objects carrying nuclear weapons or any other kinds of weapons of mass destruction." During the Cold War, the term "weapons of mass destruction" was a reference to nuclear weapons. At the time, in the West the euphemism "strategic weapons" was used to refer to the American nuclear arsenal, presented as a necessary deterrent against nuclear or conventional attack from the Soviet Union under Mutual Assured Destruction.
Subsequent to Operation Opera, the destruction of a pre-operational nuclear reactor inside Iraq by the Israeli Air Force in 1981, the Israeli prime minister, Menachem Begin, countered criticism by saying that "on no account shall we permit an enemy to develop weapons of mass destruction against the people of Israel." This policy of pre-emptive action against real or perceived weapons of mass destruction became known as the Begin Doctrine. The term "weapons of mass destruction" continued to see periodic use in the context of nuclear arms control. Reagan's successor, George H. W. Bush, used the term in a 1989 speech to the United Nations in reference to chemical arms; the end of the Cold War reduced U. S. reliance on nuclear weapons as a deterrent. With the 1990 invasion of Kuwait and 1991 Gulf War, Iraq's nuclear and chemical weapons programs became a particular concern of the first Bush Administration. Following the war, Bill Clinton and other western politicians and media continued to use t
The BNC connector is a miniature quick connect/disconnect radio frequency connector used for coaxial cable. The interface specifications for the BNC and many other connectors are referenced in MIL-STD-348, it features two bayonet lugs on the female connector. BNC connectors are used with miniature-to-subminiature coaxial cable in radio and other radio-frequency electronic equipment, test instruments, video signals; the BNC was used for early computer networks, including ARCnet, the IBM PC Network, the 10BASE2 variant of Ethernet. BNC connectors are made to match the characteristic impedance of cable at either 75 ohms, they are applied for frequencies below 4 GHz and voltages below 500 volts. Similar connectors using the bayonet connection principle exist, a threaded connector is available. United States military standard MIL-PRF-39012 entitled Connectors, Radio Frequency, General Specification for covers the general requirements and tests for radio frequency connectors used with flexible cables and certain other types of coaxial transmission lines in military and spaceflight applications.
The BNC was designed for military use and has gained wide acceptance in video and RF applications to 2 GHz. The BNC uses some plastic dielectric on each gender connector; this dielectric causes increasing losses at higher frequencies. Above 4 GHz, the slots may radiate signals, so the connector is usable, but not stable up to about 11 GHz. Both 50 ohm and 75 ohm versions are available; the BNC connector is used for signal connections such as: analog and serial digital interface video signals radio antennas aerospace electronics nuclear instrumentation test equipment. The BNC connector is used for composite video on commercial video devices. Consumer electronics devices with RCA connector jacks can be used with BNC-only commercial video equipment by inserting an adapter. BNC connectors were used on 10base2 thin Ethernet network cables and network cards. BNC connections can be found in recording studios. Digital recording equipment uses the connection for synchronization of various components via the transmission of word clock timing signals.
The male connector is fitted to a cable, the female to a panel on equipment. Cable connectors are designed to be fitted by crimping using a special power or manual tool. Wire strippers which strip outer jacket, shield braid, inner dielectric to the correct lengths in one operation are used; the connector was named the BNC after its bayonet mount locking mechanism and its inventors, Paul Neill and Carl Concelman. Neill worked at Bell Labs and invented the N connector. A backronym has been mistakenly applied to it: British Naval Connector. Another common incorrectly attributed; the basis for the development of the BNC connector was the work of Octavio M. Salati, a graduate of the Moore School of Electrical Engineering of the University of Pennsylvania. In 1945, while working at Hazeltine Electronics Corporation, he filed a patent for a connector for coaxial cables that would minimize wave reflection/loss; the patent was granted in 1951. BNC connectors are most made in 50 and 75 ohm versions, matched for use with cables of the same characteristic impedance.
The 75 ohm types can sometimes be recognized by the reduced or absent dielectric in the mating ends but this is by no means reliable. There was a proposal in the early 1970s for the dielectric material to be coloured red in 75 ohm connectors, while this is implemented, it did not become standard; the 75 ohm connector is dimensionally different from the 50 ohm variant, but the two can be made to mate. The 50 ohm connectors are specified for use at frequencies up to 4 GHz and the 75 ohm version up to 2 GHz. A 95 ohm variant is used within the aerospace sector, but elsewhere, it is used with the 95 ohm video connections for glass cockpit displays on some aircraft. Video and DS3 Telco central office applications use 75 ohm BNC connectors, whereas 50 ohm connectors are used for data and RF. Many VHF receivers used 75 ohm antenna inputs, so they used 75 ohm BNC connectors. Reverse-polarity BNC is a variation of the BNC specification which reverses the polarity of the interface. In a connector of this type, the female contact found in a jack is in the plug, while the male contact found in a plug is in the jack.
This ensures that reverse polarity interface connectors do not mate with standard interface connectors. The SHV connector is a high-voltage BNC variant. Smaller versions of the BNC connector, called Mini BNC and High Density BNC, are manufactured by Amphenol. While retaining the electrical characteristics of the original specification, they have smaller footprints giving a higher packing density on circuit boards and equipment backplanes; these connectors have true 75 ohm impedance making them suitable for HD video applications. The different versions are designed to mate with each other, a 75 ohm and a 50 ohm BNC connector which both comply with the 2007 IEC standard, IEC 60169-8, will mate non-destructively. At least one manufacturer claims high reliability for the connectors' compatibility. At frequencies below 10 MHz the impedance mismatch between a 50 ohm connector or cable and a 75 ohm one has negligible effects. BNC connectors were thus made only in 50 ohm
The Bangalore Cantonment was a military cantonment of the British Raj based in the Indian city of Bangalore. The cantonment covered an area of 13 square miles, extending from the Residency on the west to Binnamangala on the east and from the Tanneries in the north to Agram in the south. By area, it was the largest British military cantonment in South India; the British garrison stationed in the cantonment included three artillery batteries, regiments of the cavalry, sappers, mounted infantry and transport corps and the Bangalore Rifle Volunteers. The Bangalore Cantonment was directly under the administration of the British Raj, while Bangalore City itself was under the jurisdiction of the Durbar of the Kingdom of Mysore. Prior to the arrival of the British, Bangalore had been the stronghold of several Hindu dynasties including the Gangas, Cholas and the Vijayanagara Empire. In the 18th century, the dominion of Bangalore passed on to Haider Ali. After a series of successive wars known as the Anglo-Mysore Wars with Haider Ali's son, Tipu Sultan, the British captured the city and all of the Kingdom of Mysore in 1799.
Bangalore was the strongest fort of Tipu Sultan and during the Third Anglo-Mysore War, Lord Cornwallis decided to reduce this fort before the storming of Srirangapatna. Tipu Sultan followed Cornwallis' army, placing him in the awkward position of having an undefeated enemy army at his back while besieging the a strong fortification. Tipu kept away hoping to take assault in flank. Over the next twelve days, two companies of the Madras Pioneers provided sappers for eight batteries, dug several parallels and a trench up to the fort ditch. Cornwallis attacked secretly on the night of 21 March 1791; the Madras Pioneers, led by Lt Colin Mackenzie, crossed the ditch with scaling ladders, mounted the breach and entered the fort, while the artillery engaged the fort with blank ammunition. With a breach made, the main stormers rushed in and the fort was captured after a hand-to hand fight in which a thousand defenders were killed. Cornwallis secured the force against Tipu; the Madras Pioneers, went on to make Bangalore their permanent home.
The British found Bangalore to be a pleasant and appropriate place to station their garrison and therefore moved their garrison to Bangalore from Srirangapatna. The origin of the word cantonment comes from the French word canton, meaning district; each cantonment was a well-defined and demarcated unit of territory set apart for the quartering and administering of troops. The heart of the Bangalore Cantonment was the Parade Ground; the Civil and Military Station grew around the Parade Ground. The installation of the Bangalore Cantonment attracted a large number of migrant workers from Tamil Nadu and other neighboring states of the Kingdom of Mysore. Bangalore became the largest city in the Kingdom of Mysore. In 1831, the capital of the Kingdom of Mysore was moved from Mysore city to Bangalore; the Bangalore Cantonment grew independent of its twin-city, referred to as Bangalore pete. The pete was populated with the native Kannadiga population, while the Bangalore Cantonment, had a colonial design with a population that consisted of residents from other parts of India and Britain.
In the 19th century, the Bangalore Cantonment had clubs, bungalows and cinemas. The Bangalore Cantonment had a strong European influence with public residence and life centered on the South Parade, now referred to as MG Road; the area around the South Parade was famous for its bars and restaurants with the area known as Blackpally becoming a one-stop shopping area The Cubbon Park was built in the Bangalore Cantonment in 1864 on 120 acres of land. The St. Mark's Cathedral was built on the South Parade grounds; the settlements adjacent to the South Parades was known as Mootocherry, occupied by Tamil settlers from the North Arcot and South Arcot districts of Tamil Nadu. The names of many of the cantonment's streets were derived from military nomenclature such as Artillery Road, Brigade Road, Infantry Road and Cavalry Road; the city of Bangalore still retains many of the colonial names of its streets. A resident to the King of Mysore, Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV lived within the cantonment area and his quarters was called the "Residency" and hence the name Residency Road.
Areas around the South Parade that were public living areas were named after their European residents. A municipal corporation was established for the Bangalore Cantonment in 1863. After Indian independence in 1947, corporation merged with the Bangalore pete municipal corporation to form the Bangalore City Corporation, now known as Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike. Bangalore was part of the Madras Presidency, in 1864, the city was connected to Madras by rail. Still called the Bangalore Cantonment Railway Station, it is one of many railway stations servicing the city of Bangalore. Around 1883, Richmond Town, Benson Town and Cleveland Town were added to the cantonment; the population of the Bangalore pete and cantonment fell in 1898 when a bubonic plague epidemic broke out. The epidemic took a huge toll and many temples were built during this time, dedicated to the goddess Mariamma; the crisis caused by this epidemic catalyzed the improvement and sanitation of Bangalore and, in turn, improvements in sanitation and health facilities helped to modernize Bangalore.
Telephone lines were laid to help coordinate anti-plague operations. Regulations for building new houses with proper sanitation facilities came into effect. A health officer was appointed in 1898 and the city was divided into four wards for better coordination and the Victoria Hospital was inaugurated in 1900 by Lord Curzo
Bollack Netter and Co
Bollack, Netter, et Cie, more known as B. N. C. was a small automobile company in Paris situated on Avenue de Paris 39, in the Levallois-Perret district. B. N. C. was established by Lucien Bollack and his financier, banker René Netter, in January 1923. The technical director was Jacques Muller known as "Jack". Muller's earlier J. M. K. Cyclecar formed the basis of their first car the "DZ". B. N. C. were a successful maker of cyclecars, winning many rallies albeit not selling many cars. In the late 1920s, the company tried to penetrate a higher market sector - the demand for large passenger cars and for ultra-light racing cars were both low, Bollack and Netter were forced out of their company in 1928 when the business was acquired by Charles de Ricou, an energetic businessman who by now had a reputation for rescuing financially troubled automobile manufacturing businesses. In the case of B. N. C, his timing was less than perfect, however, in that he failed to anticipate the Great Depression, B. N. C. Launching the large 8-cylinder engined "Aigle" in October 1929, a few days before the stock market crashes gave notice of a decade of severe contraction and stagnation for the French economy.
Shortly after he had taken over at B. N. C. de Ricou took over two other companies in financial difficulty and Rolland-Pilain. N. C. Lombard and Rolland-Pilain. Models on display included the new B. N. C. 6-cylinder engined 2-litre B. N. C coupé "Vedette ADER". In the event this car was never produced for sale, however. For 1931 a line of sporty front-wheel drive B. N. C. cars with pneumatic suspension came to naught. The doors of the firm were shuttered shortly afterwards. One of B. N. C.'s drivers, André Siréjols, had been building special bodies for B. N. C. Cars, he took over the remaining stock of parts and kept on assembling a trickle of cars into the fifties referred to as "B. N. C. Siréjols"; the last of these continuation cars were equipped with Ford's "10 HP" 1172 cc side valve four. Beginning with a single model, the DZ, before the first year was over the range had reached double digits. Three chassis and three different engines were offered. B. N. C. Mainly produced sports cars, their design was similar to that of the Amilcar.
The cars' engines were not made at the factory, but were instead purchased from proprietary engine manufacturers such as Ruby and S. C. A. P.. B. N. C. Later produced a car with a 1,100 cc S. C. A. P. or Chapuis-Dornier engines, fitted with a Cozette supercharger. While most had three-speed gearboxes, a number of cars received four-speed units. In 1927 the B. N. C. Sport was presented, with overhead-valve engines from S. C. A. P. or Ruby, spoked wheels, a inclined radiator. In the late 1920s, BNC tried their hand at producing large passenger cars with four to five-liter eight-cylinder engines made by Lycoming. To prove the mettle of the cars, a standard B. N. C. with an 1,100 cc Ruby engine lapped the Le Mans circuit for 24 hours straight in 1928. The average speed was above 90 km/h. After having been forced out of the company, Lucien Bollack retained the import rights to the American Lycoming engines, he went on to manufacture the large Lycoming-engined Aigle in 1929. Only a few were built and the company had ceased trading by 1930.
The firm's greatest victory was a double win at Fontainebleau, at the 1927 Bol d'Or. In 1928 a BNC finished in seventh place at Le Mans. At the 1929 Le Mans 24 hour race the manufacturer entered three cars. Two were retired from the race early on; the third was a 1500cc car and covered 88 laps before retiring: this car attracted attention for another reason, since it featured an imposing vertical radiator-grill at the front rather than a sloping grill of the style that by this time had become a standard feature of BNC track cars. In 1930, a B. N. C. won its class at the Spa 24 Hours race. The following year, while leading its class, the engine broke down a few hours before the finish and the car ended up in thirteenth place, with Duray and Charlier driving. B. N. C. cars are still used in rallies. B. N. C. Super Sport B. N. C. FCD B. N. C. 527 S. C. A. P. Lycoming Engines Amilcar Amicale BNC
Brasenose College, Oxford
Brasenose College The King's Hall and College of Brasenose, is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 1509, with the library and chapel added in the mid-17th century and the new quadrangle in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; as of 2018, it has a financial endowment of £149.0 million. For the four degree years 2011/2014, Brasenose averaged 10th in the Norrington Table. In a recent Oxford Barometer Survey, Brasenose’s undergraduates registered 98% overall satisfaction. Brasenose is home to one of the oldest rowing clubs in Brasenose College Boat Club; the history of Brasenose College, Oxford stretches back to 1509, when the college was founded on the site of Brasenose Hall. Its name is believed to derive from the name of a brass or bronze knocker that adorned the hall's door; the college was associated with Lancashire and Cheshire, the county origins of its two founders – Sir Richard Sutton and the Bishop of Lincoln, William Smyth – a link, maintained until the latter half of the twentieth century.
The first principals navigated Brasenose, with its Catholic sympathisers, through the reformation and continuing religious reforms. Most of Brasenose favoured the Royalist side during the English Civil War, although it produced notable generals and clergy on both sides; the library and chapel were completed in the mid-17th century, despite Brasenose suffering continuing money problems. The post-1785 period would see an era of prosperity of the college under Principal William Cleaver; the college began to be populated by gentlemen, its income doubling between 1790 and 1810, academic success considerable. Efforts to reconstruct Brasenose were not completed, until the second half of the century with the addition of New Quad between 1886 and 1911. Brasenose's financial position remained secure, although under the tenure of Principal Edward Hartopp Cradock Brasenose's academic record waned with much of its success focussed on sports – where it excelled most notably in cricket and rowing; the mid-Century Royal Commissions were navigated – although they were opposed in form, their recommendations welcomed including choosing fellows on merit rather than by their place of birth.
The election of Charles Heberden as principal in 1889 led to a gradual reversal in Brasenose's academic failures, although its sporting performance suffered. Heberden was the first lay Principal, presiding over an secular college, opening up the library to undergraduates, instituting an entrance exam for the first time and accepting Rhodes scholarships. Brasenose lost 115 men in the First World War, with its undergraduate numbers reduced. Lord Curzon's post-War reforms were instituted; the inter-war period was defined by William Stallybrass, who as fellow and eventual principal dominated college life. Brasenose once again produced top sportsmen – cricketers and others; this came at the cost of falling academic standards and poorly performing finances, which would see Stallybrass' authority challenged. He died in a railway accident. After the war, sporting achievements waned but academic success did not improve in what was now one of Oxford's largest colleges; the 1970s saw considerable social change in Brasenose, with more post-graduate attendees and fewer domestic staff.
In 1974 Brasenose became one of the first men's colleges to admit women as full members, bringing an end to 470 years of the college as an men-only institution. The other all-male colleges to begin admitting women in 1974 were Jesus College, Hertford, St Catherine's, Wadham. There was considerable construction work to ensure that undergraduates could be housed for the entirety of their degree on the main site and on the Frewin site. Law continued to be a strong subject for Brasenose, as was the emerging subject of Politics and Economics, starting with the fellowship of Vernon Bogdanor. Brasenose's finances were secured, it thus entered the twenty-first century in a good position as regards financial and academic success. Brasenose faces the west side of Radcliffe Square opposite the Radcliffe Camera in the centre of Oxford; the north side is defined by Brasenose Lane. To the west is Lincoln College. At its south-east end, the college is separated from the University Church by St Mary's Passage.
The main entrance of the college can be found on Radcliffe Square. Although not located on Turl Street the college has informal links with the three Turl Street colleges; the college is physically linked to Lincoln College through a connecting door, through which Brasenose College members are permitted to enter Lincoln College on Ascension Day each year. The door is opened for five minutes and it is the only time during the year that this door is unlocked. Brasenose members are served an ale by Lincoln College, traditionally flavoured with ground ivy; the main college site comprises three quads, the original Old Quad, a small quad known as the Deer Park, the large New Quad, as well as collection of smaller houses facing Radcliffe Square and the High Street. The original college buildings comprised a single two storey quad, incorporating the original kitchen of Brasenose Hall on the south side. In the 17th century a third floor was added to the qu
Beth Nielsen Chapman
Beth Nielsen Chapman is an American singer and songwriter who has written hits for country and pop music performers. Beth Nielsen Chapman was born on September 14, 1958, in Harlingen, Texas as the middle child of five to a Catholic family, an American Air Force Major father and a nurse mother. While Chapman was growing up, her family moved several times and settled in Alabama in 1969. While living in Germany at age 11, Chapman started playing guitar after her mother hid a Framus guitar as a Father's Day gift in her room, she learned to play the piano at the same time she started playing guitar. As a child and teenager, she listened to a variety of music including Hoagy Carmichael, Tony Bennett, James Taylor and Carole King. In 1976, Chapman played with a rock and pop group called "Harmony" in Montgomery, Alabama replacing Tommy Shaw who had just left to join Styx, she played acoustic guitar and piano as well as providing vocals for the group in a locally-popular bowling alley bar called Kegler's Kove and has returned to play in the area on an infrequent basis since.
Chapman had several popular songs on the Adult Contemporary charts in the 1990s, such as "I Keep Coming Back to You", "Walk My Way", "The Moment You Were Mine" and "All I Have". In 1993, she sang a duet with Paul Carrack, "In the Time It Takes". Co-songwriter of Faith Hill's hit song "This Kiss", Chapman has written songs performed by numerous artists: Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride, Willie Nelson, Tanya Tucker, Lorrie Morgan, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jim Brickman & Rebecca Lynn Howard, Suzy Bogguss, Claudia Church, Holly Dunn, Crystal Gayle, Highway 101, Terri Clark, Mindy McCready, Waylon Jennings, Megan McKenna and Bette Midler, co-written with Michael W. Smith, among others. Several artists have performed with Beth on her albums: Bonnie Raitt on "Heads Up for the Wrecking Ball" and "Shake My Soul". Chapman performed at the 2nd Annual Women Rock Girls and Guitars Lifetime TV Special, she sang backing vocals with Emmylou Harris, performed with the ensemble on a cover version of Take It To The Limit, plus performed her own song, "There's A Light" with Emmylou Harris, Pat Benatar, Sheryl Crow and Shea Seger singing back-up.
Some of Chapman's songwriting collaborators have been Annie Roboff, Bill Lloyd, Eric Kaz, Harlan Howard, Joe Henry. And Judie Tzuke. In her native country, Chapman has never made the Hot 100 chart as a recording artist, although she charted eight singles on the Billboard Top Adult Contemporary Singles chart, she is tied for first place as the artist with the most charted Adult Contemporary hits without reaching the Billboard Hot 100, according to the Billboard Top Adult Contemporary Hits book. Chapman charted one song on the Billboard Bubbling Under The Hot 100 Chart. "Sand and Water" reached Number 2 on the Bubbling Under chart, a position listed as No. 102 on the Hot 100 in various Billboard singles books. She is a more successful chart artist in Canada, where she scored three Top 40 hits on the national RPM chart in the early 1990s, her biggest Canadian hit was "The Moment You Were Mine", which reached #23 in 1993. Chapman's husband, Ernest Chapman, died of cancer in 1994. In 2000 she experienced her own battle with breast cancer.
The song "Sand and Water" was written after Ernest's death. The song was featured on the episode "Sand and Water" in Season 7 of ER, as well as in the Season 1 episode "Dead Man Dating" of the TV series Charmed in October 1998, she has one son, a musician and has performed with her. As of 2008, she lives in Nashville, Tennessee; this engagement was the inspiration for her album Back to Love. In January 2011, Chapman married psychologist and photographer Bob Sherman, after a decade long courtship. Chapman's album, Back to Love, was released in the United Kingdom on January 25, 2010, in the United States on May 25, 2010; the album contained 11 new compositions. The single "Even As It All Goes By" closed out 2009 as BBC Radio 2's "Record of the Week" and was the only new single added to the "A list" of BBC Radio 2's playlist at the end of 2009. Additionally, Back To Love was BBC Radio 2's "Album of the Week" starting on January 18, 2010; the album Liv On was released on October 7, 2016, on CD the following week.
It features Olivia Newton-John and Amy Sky in songs about loss and moving on from grief. Chapman, Newton-John and Sky toured across Canada, the U. S. the U. K. and Ireland in 2017 in support of the album, performing in smaller, more intimate venues. Her most recent album, Hearts of Glass, was released in 2018 and is available on CD, as an MP3 download or as a digital download.
