Along with his brother Guglielmo, Mariano started his career at S. S. C. Napoli. Both Guglielmo and Mariano were transferred to separate clubs, with Mariano joining U. S. Lecce on 31 January 2004 and Guglielmo for Sampdoria in January 1999. In summer 2004 the two brothers were both transferred to Perugia. However, on 28 January 2005, Mariano moved to Atalanta in a co-ownership deal, for €2,000, while Guglielmo remained at Perugia before joining Lazio in summer 2005. Atalanta acquired the full registration rights of Mariano in summer 2005 for free, after the bankruptcy of Perugia. From Atalanta, Mariano was loaned to Cremonese in the 2005 -- 06 and 2006 -- 07 seasons. Mariano joined Messina on 24 July 2007, as part of Sergio Floccari's deal.

FM broadcast band

The FM broadcast band, used for FM broadcast radio by radio stations, differs between different parts of the world. In Europe and Africa, it spans from 87.5 to 108 megahertz - known as VHF Band II - while in the Americas it ranges from 88 to 108 MHz. The FM broadcast band in Japan uses 76 to 95 MHz; the International Radio and Television Organisation band in Eastern Europe is from 65.8 to 74.0 MHz, although these countries now use the 87.5 to 108 MHz band, as in the case of Russia. Some other countries have discontinued the OIRT band and have changed to the 87.5 to 108 MHz band. Frequency modulation radio originated in the United States during the 1930s. However, FM broadcasting did not become widespread in North America, until the 1960s. Frequency-modulated radio waves can be generated at any frequency. All the bands mentioned in this article are in the high frequency range, which extends from 30 to 300 MHz. While all countries use FM channel center frequencies ending in 0.1, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, 0.9 MHz, some countries use center frequencies ending in 0.0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8 MHz.

A few others use 0.05, 0.15, 0.25, 0.35, 0.45, 0.55, 0.65, 0.75, 0.85, 0.95 MHz. An ITU conference in Geneva, Switzerland, on December 7, 1984, resolved to discontinue the use of 50 kHz channel spacings throughout Europe. Most countries have used 100 kHz or 200 kHz channel spacings for FM broadcasting since this ITU conference in 1984; some digitally-tuned FM radios are unable to tune using 50 kHz or 100 kHz increments. Therefore, when traveling abroad, stations that broadcast on certain frequencies using such increments may not be heard clearly; this problem will not affect reception on an analog-tuned radio. A few countries, such as Italy, which have congested FM bands, still allow a station on any multiple of 50 kHz wherever one can be squeezed in; the 50 kHz channel spacings help prevent co-channel interference, these take advantage of FM's capture effect and receiver selectivity. The original frequency allocation in North America used by Edwin Armstrong used the frequency band from 42 through 50 MHz, but this allocation was changed to a higher band beginning in 1945.

In Canada, the United States, the Bahamas, etc. There are 101 FM channels numbered from 200 to 300, though these numbers are used outside the fields of radio engineering and government; the center frequencies of the FM channels are spaced in increments of 200 kHz. The frequency of 87.9 MHz, while technically part of TV channel 6, is used by just two FM class-D stations in the United States. Portable radio tuners tune down to 87.5 MHz, so that the same radios can be made and sold worldwide. Automobiles have FM radios that can tune down to 87.7 MHz, so that TV channel 6's audio at 87.75 MHz could be received, such as in Birmingham and Denver, Colorado. With the advent of digital television in the United States, this ability will soon be irrelevant when the remaining analog LPTV stations are required by the FCC to shut down or convert to digital by September 2015—but there are still analog television stations in the sparsely-populated regions of northern Canada. There are analog TV stations on the other continents and on scores of different islands.

In the United States, the twenty-one channels with center frequencies of 87.9–91.9 MHz constitute the reserved band for non-commercial educational stations. The other channels (92.1 MHz through 107.9 MHz may be used by both commercial and non-commercial stations. The American Federal Communications Commission devised a bandplan in which FM radio stations would be assigned at intervals of four channels for any one geographic area. Thus, in one area, stations might be at 88.1, 88.9, 89.7, etc. while in an adjacent area, stations might be at 88.3, 89.1, 89.9, 90.7 etc. Certain frequencies were designated for Class A only, which had a limit of three kilowatts of effective radiated power and an antenna height limit for the center of radiation of 300 feet height above average terrain; these frequencies were 92.1, 92.7, 93.5, 94.3, 95.3, 95.9, 96.7, 97.7, 98.3, 99.3, 100.1, 100.9, 101.7, 102.3, 103.1, 103.9, 104.9, 105.5, 106.3 and 107.1. On other frequencies, a station could be Class Class C, depending on which zone it was in.

In the late 1980s, the FCC switched to a bandplan based on a distance separation table using operating stations, subdivided the class table to create extra classes and change antenna height limits to meters. Class A power was doubled to six kilowatts, the frequency restrictions noted above were removed; as of late 2004, a station can be "squeezed in" anywhere as long as the location and class conform to the rules in the FCC separation table. The rules for second-adjacent-channel spacing do not apply for stations licensed before 1964; each channel is 200 kHz wide, can pass audio and subcarrier frequencies up to 100 kHz. Deviation is limited to 150 kHz total in order to prevent adjacent channel interference on the band. Stations in the U. S. may go up to 10% over this limit if they use non-stereo subcarriers, increasing total modulation by 0.5% for each 1% used by the subcarriers. The OIRT FM broadcast band covers 65.9 to 74 MHz. It was used in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics an

Extravaganza (TV series)

Extravaganza is a two-hour comedy variety show taped in Jakarta, broadcast by Trans TV on Saturday and Monday night since its debut on May 30, 2004 until November 28, 2009. At the time, it's the most popular comedy variety show in Indonesia. Tora Sudiro Indra Birowo Rony Dozer Karli Virnie Ismail Ronal Surapradja Tike Priatnakusumah Aming Tinka Dasia* Mieke Amalia* Sogi Indra Dhuaja Gilang Dirgahari And other new characters: Edric Tjandra, Lia Ananta*, Ence Bagus, Farid Shigeta*, it stars four finalists of Kampus Extravaganza, a show to find new characters for Extravaganza. They are T. J. Sentot* now known as, Ananda Omesh and Ammho*. There are newer members, like Cathy Sharon and Luna Maya Notes: *No longer starred in Extravaganza Every episode of Extravaganza will have guests, for example: Cinta Laura, etc; the show became successful due to its creativity and originality, a new, fresh kind of comedy show in Indonesia. This however, is debatable since the format of the show appeared to be based on foreign comedy shows, most prominently the American Saturday Night Live.

Most of the comedic scenario the show used was based on jokes circulating in the Internet and common Indonesian jokes. Some segment on Extravaganza such as: Sketsa Komedi - Comedy story like the real-life story. Based on true life-story, manga, Western cartoon, Indonesia fighting, folktale, or pre-historic era. Gerimis - Parody of Trans TV program Ceriwis with the tagline "Yoo... Miss..." Legenda Extravaganza Bincang-bincang Extravaganza - Talk show segment with Tike Priyatnakusumah. Extranews - News segment presented by Edric Tjandra, Indra Birowo or Shogi. Edric always presented the news with perfunctory Chinese language. Sinden Gosip - Infotainment segment presented by Tike and TJ which brought with Sundanese song. Berpacu dengan Muladi - Music quiz parodied from TVRI program Berpacu Dalam Melodi. Teka-Teki Selebritis Makelar - Music segment which presented some Indonesian music video clip, parodied by the Extravaganza cast. Termelet-melet - Like Gerimis, but the real-show that been parodied is the Trans TV program Termehek-Mehek.

Jean Moréas

Jean Moréas, was a Greek poet and art critic, who wrote in the French language but in Greek during his youth. Moréas was born into a distinguished Athenian family on April 15, 1856, his ancestors included two well-known men of the Greek War of Independence, namely his paternal grandfather and namesake Ioannis Papadiamantopoulos, born in Corinth but of Epirote ancestry, his maternal granduncle Iakovos Tombazis, from Hydra, who became one of the first admirals of the Greek navy. Moreas's father was Adamantios Papadiamantopoulos from Patras. Moreas received a French education, went to Paris in 1875 to study law at the University of Paris. While in France, he began associating with literary circles, became acquainted with Les Hydropathes, a group of French writers that included Alphonse Allais, Charles Cros, Guy de Maupassant, Léon Bloy, he was an acquaintance of the Greek artist Demetrios Galanis and the Romanian poet Ion Minulescu. Moréas died in Paris, France on March 31, 1910. Moréas published poetry in his publications Lutèce and Le Chat noir, collected his poems into two editions, Les Syrtes and Cantilènes, which were influenced by Paul Verlaine.

He was a practitioner of the style of Symbolism, wrote the Symbolist Manifesto, which he published in the newspaper Le Figaro to redeem the reputation of the new generation of young writers from the charge of "decadence" that the press had implied. He was considered one of the most important Symbolist poets until the early 1890s. In 1891, as Symbolism became more associated with anarchism, he published Le Pèlerin passionné which rejected Northern European and Germanic influences, such as Romanticism, in favor of Ancient Roman and Ancient Greek influences; this work helped initiate the École Romane, the aesthetic of which provided Charles Maurras with the ideology necessary for the far-right philosophy Action Française. Moréas wrote Les Demoiselles Goubert, a novel, in association with Paul Adam, his most important publications were: Les Syrtes Les Cantilènes Le Pèlerin passionné Stances Contes de la vielle France Andreas Embirikos.

Boeing–Embraer joint venture

Boeing Brasil–Commercial is a proposed joint venture between Boeing and Embraer to design and sell commercial airliners worldwide. The partnership was established on February 26, 2019, after Boeing agreed to purchase an 80% stake in Embraer's commercial aircraft division; the deal has been approved by Embraer's shareholders and is expected to close by March 2020 pending antitrust reviews. The two companies continue to operate their commercial aviation business independently until the deal is finalized. Embraer's current airliners are the E-Jet E2 series of large regional jets. In December 2017, the Wall Street Journal reported Boeing has been in takeover talks with the 18,000 employee strong Embraer, valuing it over its $3.7 billion market value, awaiting Brazilian government approbation. The two companies confirmed that a potential combination was being discussed, with a transaction subject to approval by the Brazilian government and regulators, the two companies’ boards and shareholders The potential deal is seen as a reaction to the Airbus-Bombardier deal on the CSeries.

On December 22, 2017, Brazilian President Michel Temer said the sale of Embraer to Boeing was "out of the question", adding that the government is in favor of partnerships with the company, but warning that it will veto changes in stock control. On December 28, defense minister Raul Jungmann opposed transferring control of Embraer SA as the defense business cannot be separated from its commercial operations, but would welcome a deal maintaining local control of the company. On January 2, 2018, Brazilian newspaper Valor Econômico reported that forming joint ventures, sharing costs and income in definite areas, was preferable to avoid changing control of Embraer. Embraer’s engineers could work on Boeing’s future developments, the New Midsize Airplane or a New Small Airplane, but it wants to control at least Embraer's airliners to avoid repeating the B787 debacle: it partnered with major subcontractors and handed them engineering work, but those weren’t up to the task, resulting in unprecedented delays, overruns of billions of dollars and Boeing was forced to buy out some.

On July 5, 2018, a Memorandum of Understanding was announced for a strategic partnership: for $3.8 billion Boeing will hold 80% of a joint venture for Embraers's airliners and services, valued at $4.75 billion, Embraer will own the remaining 20%. It should generate $150 million synergies by year three and add to Boeing's earnings per share from 2020. Boeing will control the new company, managed from Brazil and reporting to Dennis Muilenburg, another defense joint venture will market the KC-390. After negotiation of definitive details and regulatory approval is expected by the end of 2019; the July 5 memorandum leaked in October, the deadline to finalise the transaction is set for December 5, for a closure by the end of 2019. Embraer would receive payments for five years before the joint venture would distribute 50% of its profits to shareholders. A lock-up agreement would prevent Boeing from selling their shares for 10 years. A put option would protect the minority stake value, allowing Embraer to sell its shares at the same price, inflation adjusted.

The new company scope include the designs, manufacturing and sales of the ERJs, E-Jets and E-Jets E2. Embraer will retain its executive business jet and its defence business, but a joint venture for the KC-390 freighter will be explored. On 6 December, at the demand of four congressmen of the left-wing Brazilian Workers Party, a Brazilian federal court forbade the regional plane-maker's board of directors to form the joint venture, as that would give away for free the profitable airliner division and would remove it from the Brazilian Government control; the government can veto the joint venture and is reluctant to allow it, but president-elect Jair Bolsonaro, which takes office on the first of January, is favorable to the deal. Leeham News observes Boeing needs Embraer but Embraer needs Boeing as the E2 is selling in part due to the joint venture wait, the E175-E2 was sold only to SkyWest but is too heavy for US scope clauses; the following week, the injunction was overturned by a panel of appeals court.

On 17 December, a strategic partnership was announced, subject to Brazilian Government approval, before the definitive transaction subjected to shareholder and regulatory approval. To market the KC-390, another joint venture will be owned for 51% by Embraer and 49% by Boeing, will need similar authorizations. Boeing will pay $4.2 billion for its 80% stake in the JV, up from $3.8 billion, valuing it $5.25 billion up from $4.75 billion when it was proposed on July 5. On 20 December, in response to Embraer’s union class action, the same Judge Victor Giuizo Neto blocked again the proposed sale as “The brutal asymmetry in the shareholder structure of this venture prevents it from being carried out without compromising the survival of national interests”, an injunction contested by Embraer. On 22 December, the injunction was overturned. Federal Court President Therezinha Cazerta said. On 10 January 2019, the new Brazilian government approved the tie-up as it would "maintain the current jobs in Brazil," while no commitment was made before.

However, only 120 of 400 workers on Embraer's executive jet production line agreed to move to the Araraquara region. On February 26, 2019, the partnership was approved by Embraer's shareholders, it is to be followed by antitrust reviews in Brazil, the EU, the US and China before a fourth quarter closure. The joint venture should have $3.5 billion assets against $1.4 billion liabilities, for a $2.1 billion equity value. The price paid by Boeing is seen as favorable to Embraer compared to the amount paid by Airbus
