Bad Dog (TV series)

Bad Dog is a Canadian-American animated series produced by CinéGroupe and Saban Entertainment for the Teletoon and Fox Family Channel networks, first airing on Teletoon on March 1, 1999. The cartoon focused on their dog Berkeley; the show's gimmick was that, whenever Berkeley was told that he was a bad dog, he would freeze and pretend to be dead until someone told him he was a good dog. This would happen in every episode; the show was inspired by the After Dark screensaver "Bad Dog". The two dogs have a similar appearance, the "Bad Dog" of the show is named Berkeley, a reference to Berkeley Systems, the creators of After Dark; the show was paired with another series called Monster Farm. Berkeley aka "Barky": The not-so-normal dog owned by the Potanski family who likes having adventures and always gets everyone into trouble, he appears to have a compulsion to obey every order he hears, including those that were not given to him. As a running gag, he passes out when he wakes up when he hears Good Dog.

"Little Vic" Potanski: The younger Potanski son. He loves Berkeley extremely. Penelope Potanski: The sole Potanski daughter, she likes her beauty, seems to have something of a penchant for the theatre. Trevor Potanski: The panicked genius older son with a like of playing chess, he wears glasses. He has a large amount of allergies and phobias. Mr. and Mrs. Potanski: The parents of Vic and Trevor and the owners of Berkeley. Mr. Potanski is an inventor who owns a business called "Potanski's Top Of The Line", however all of his inventions backfire with disastrous results. Mrs. Potanski is a psychiatrist. Grandfather Potanski: The eldest Potanski. Once an astronaut, he likes watching space-related programs on TV and mistakes everyone's name. Lester Johnson: Neighbor of the Potanskis who loves his cat named Special, but hates Berkeley and calls him "The Beast Dog". Special: Lester Johnson's cat, who doesn't move and sought out by Berkeley. Mrs. Simpkins: A frequent patient of Mrs. Potanski, who has a phobia of everything.

Essex School of discourse analysis

The Essex School constitutes a variety of discourse analysis, one that combines theoretical sophistication – due to its reliance on the post-structuralist and psychoanalytic traditions and, in particular, on the work of Lacan, Barthes, etc. – with analytical precision, since it focuses predominantly on an in-depth analysis of political discourses in late modernity. Founding figures of this approach are Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe, two post-Marxist political theorists, disillusioned with economic reductionism, since the 1970s, to reinterpret Gramsci’s theory of hegemony to highlight the role of meaning and of processes of interpellation and identification in the creation of political identities and in the articulation and sedimentation of political discourses and hegemonic orders; the paradigmatic formulation of this innovative orientation and of its various conceptual innovations can be found in Laclau’s and Mouffe’s Hegemony and Socialist Strategy, first published in 1985, as well as in many subsequent contributions of the two thinkers.

The approach developed by Laclau and Mouffe and the theoretical traditions influencing their thought – Saussurean linguistics, Lacanian psychoanalysis and deconstruction – provided the teaching backbone of the graduate programme in Ideology and Discourse Analysis Laclau founded at the University of Essex in the early 1980s. From its inception, the programme attracted many MA and PhD students from around the globe from Argentina, Greece, Spain, the US and the UK. Many PhD theses further developing Laclau’s and Mouffe’s discourse theory and/or applying it in the empirical analysis of concrete empirical cases have since been completed. Graduates of the programme are now employed by universities in many parts of the world, while the programme itself is run by three members of staff at Essex: Aletta Norval, David Howarth and Jason Glynos, all ex-PhD students of Laclau. Academics associated with the programme have set up a World Network in Ideology and Discourse Analysis, which provides a web-based channel of communication between its 203 registered members and has organized the Inaugural World Conference in Ideology and Discourse Analysis, which took place from 8-10 September 2008 at Roskilde University, with Ernesto Laclau as keynote speaker.

Apart from setting up a distinct graduate programme, now in its third decade, three other factors are indicative of the increasing international recognition and the gradual institutionalization of the research tradition initiated by Laclau and Mouffe: The activities of the Centre for Theoretical Studies in the Humanities and the Social Sciences founded by Laclau at the University of Essex, which functioned as the intellectual hub of the Ideology and Discourse Analysis group. As a result of all these developments, the distinct identity of the group and of its research output triggered a process of naming. From 2003 onwards, when critics wanted to refer to the work of members of the group, they used the phrase ‘the Essex School’, now used by both members of the group and ‘outsiders’; the Essex School does not limit the research direction of its ‘members’, each one of whom develops her or his own orientation independently.

List of Masters Tournament broadcasters

CBS has televised the Masters in the United States every year since 1956, when it used six cameras and covered only the final four holes. Tournament coverage of the first eight holes did not begin until 1995 because of resistance from the tournament organizers, but by 2007, more than 50 cameras were used. Chairman Jack Stephens felt that the back nine was always more "compelling", increased coverage would increase the need for sponsorship spending, that broadcasting the front nine of the course on television would cut down on attendance and television viewership for the tournament. USA Network added first- and second-round coverage in 1982; the Masters has been broadcast every year in high-definition television since 2000, one of the first golf tournaments to hold that distinction. In 2008, ESPN replaced USA as broadcaster of early-round coverage; these broadcasts use the CBS Sports production staff and commentators, although then-ESPN personality Mike Tirico served as a studio host. As mentioned, CBS has televised the Masters Tournament in the United States every year since 1956, when it used six cameras and covered only the final four holes.

Because of resistance from the tournament organizers, 18 hole coverage did not begin until 2002, but by 2006, over 50 cameras were used. USA Network added first- and second-round coverage in 1982, produced by the CBS production team; the independent USA Sports became part of NBC Sports through NBCUniversal in 2005, meaning the cable and network coverage of the Masters was split between rival companies. However, USA continued to use its own graphics for sports, CBS continued to produce their coverage of the Masters, an arrangement that lasted through 2007. ESPN, another rival of CBS Sports, took over in 2008. However, ESPN uses production with the CBS logo. In 2007, CBS broadcast the tournament with high-definition fixed and handheld wired cameras, as well as standard-definition wireless handheld cameras; that same year, CBS added "Masters Extra," an hour's extra full-field bonus coverage daily on the internet, preceding the television broadcasts. In 2008, CBS added full coverage of holes 16 live on the web.

While Augusta National Golf Club has chosen CBS as its U. S. broadcast partner, it has done so on successive one-year contracts. Due to the lack of long-term contractual security, as well as the club's limited dependence on broadcast rights fees, it is held that CBS allows Augusta National greater control over the content of the broadcast, or at least perform some form of self-censorship, in order to maintain future rights; the club, has insisted it does not make any demands with respect to the content of the broadcast. There are some controversial aspects to this relationship. Announcers refer to the gallery as "patrons" rather than spectators or fans, use the term "second cut" instead of "rough". Announcers who have been deemed not to have acted with the decorum expected by the club have been removed, notably Jack Whitaker and analyst Gary McCord. Whitaker referred to the gallery at the end of the 18-hole Monday playoff in 1966 as a "mob" and missed five years. There tends to be a lack of discussion of any controversy involving Augusta National, such as the 2003 Martha Burk protests.

However, there have not been many other major issues in recent years. The final round of the 1994 Masters was the final on-air assignment for Pat Summerall on CBS Sports. CBS had lost the rights to the National Football Conference to Fox prior to the 1994 NFL season, but much like Vin Scully did in 1982 after calling his final NFL game, Pat Summerall stayed at CBS a couple more months so he could make the 1994 Masters his final broadcast for CBS, where he was a mainstay for over 30 years. Summerall signed off the broadcast thus, surrounded by the other CBS commentators that were working the tournament: The USA Network began first and second round Masters coverage in 1982, produced by the CBS production team; this was the first cable coverage for one of the golf majors. The USA Network provided Thursday and Friday coverage for 2 hours live each day along with a prime time replay. In 1995, USA expanded the Thursday/Friday coverage to 2.5 hours each day. In 2003 and 2004, both CBS and USA televised the Masters commercial-free.

In 2005, USA increased the Thursday/Friday coverage to 3 hours. In early 2006, it was announced that USA was outbid by Golf Channel for its early-round PGA Tour rights, with USA's final season being 2006. NBC/Universal, parent company of USA Network, traded away the network's Ryder Cup coverage through 2012 to ESPN for the rights to sign Al Michaels. However, USA did renew its Masters contract for one final year. USA would televise the 2007 Masters before being outbid by ESPN; the 2007 Masters was the final event for USA Sports, dissolved into parent NBC Sports after the tournament. All future sports telecasts on USA would use personalities. ESPN replaced USA in 2008 as the broadcaster for the early rounds. ESPN used Mike Tirico and Curtis Strange as their commentary team inside Butler Cabin. However, Mike Tirico lef

Fontainea borealis

Fontainea borealis is a small tree endemic to Papua New Guinea, in the family, which grows to a height of 12 m. Fontainea borealis is a small dioecious tree growing to 12 m; the colour of the stem exudate is unknown. New shoots have antrorse golden trichomes. There are no stipules and the leaves have petioles, which are swollen at both the base and apex; the upper surfaces of the leaves are dark-green and pale-green. There are 8-14 lateral veins on each side of the midrib and between these the venation is reticulate; this plant is like Fontainea picrosperma, but differs in that it has no glands in the leaf lamina. Fontainea borealis is known only from the Eastern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea, at altitudes of 1800-2000 m; the plant was first described by Paul Irwin Forster in "Three new species of Fontainea Heckel from Australia and Papua New Guinea". The holotype K000959476 was collected in 1944 by L. S. Smith at Aiyura in the Central Highlands of Papua New Guinea; the specific epithet, derives from the Latin for "northern" and refers to the northerly distribution of this species with respect to the genus
